ON RUSSIAN TREATY
THE PRESIDENT NOTIFIES CZAR
OF ITS ABROGATION.
WILL IGNORE HOUSE ACTION
Communications Prepared and Inter
national Relations Not Lightly
to Be Dealt With.
Washington.—President Taft called
the five members cf his cabinet now
in Washington to the White House
Sunday and conferred with them
from 10 o’clock until midnight on the
Russian treaty situation.
Nothing was given out for publica
tion at the conclusion of the confer
ence, but it is understood that the atti
tude of the administration was finally
decided upon and messages outlined to
be sent to the capitol Monday, in
which, it is said, the senate will be
urged to adopt a resolution abrogating
the treaty of 1832, couched in lan
guage that will not be offensive to the
St. Petersburg government.
Attending the conference were. Sec
retary of State Knox; Secretary of
the Navy Meyer, Secretary of Agri
culture Wilson, Secretary of the
Treasury MacVeagh and Attorney
General Wickei'sham. Secretaries
Stimson, Fisher and Hitchcock are
out of town.
President Taft, it is said, has in
dicated that he will veto the Sulzex
•esolution if it should be forced
through the senate tomorrow without
modification. Nothing that can be
construed as an offense to Russia will
be permitted if the president can help
In his communications Mr. Taft, it
is said, will call attention to the fact I
that international relations are not j
lightly to be dealt with.
Despite the advice of certain repub- j
lican leaders of the house that the j
lower branch of congress should be j
considered in the matter President
Taft was sr.id to be determined to Ig- ;
nor the house entirely in his further
dealing with the Russian situation.
Senate leaders expect to hear Mon
day that the president, through Amer
ican Ambassador Guild at St. Peters
burg. already has notified Russia of
the impending abrogation of the
treaty. This notice is believed to
have been couched in the politest
terms of diplomatic language, and to
have stated that the American people
had come to regard the treaty as ob
solete in many of its provisions. The
expiration of the treaty is fixed for
January 1. 191".
President Taft is said to have taker
the ground that if he chooses he can
abrogate the treaty by executive de
cree without waiting for or taking
into consideration any possible action
either by the house or the senate. He
is supported in this view by various
members of the senate committee on
foreign relations, and is said to base
hi9 attitude upon precedents laid
down b^ his predecessors.

SERIOUSNESS OF PARENTHOOD.
It is a Various matter to launch a
Soul on the tempestuous sea of life to
be storm-driven and possibly recked
upon some hidden reef.
We were reminded of this by a re
cent afternoon spent in Judge Frost's
Juvenile Court, at Lincoln. Nebraska.
The first case was that of a young
ster just budding into manhood who
had been intoxicated. The liquor had
been given him by an older man with
whom he worked. He professed not
to know his name. He was reticent,
almost sullen. His face suggested a
parental influence that cursed him
before he was bom. The Judge sent
bim away with an exhortation and
warm shake of the hand. Tc the
writer he said: "l hr.ve not much
hope, have you?”
Case No. 2 is a baby in the arms
of a woman with a mother heart. AI1
unconscious that its destiny is fast
being determined the eight weeks' old
child is tugging away at a bottle to
satisfy present needs. The parents
have separated and have both de
serted the little waif. There is noth
ing better but to tufn it over to some
Case No. 3 was that of two girls;
the father and stepmother appeared
with them. The mother is defiant
and has a reputation none too good.
The judge severely reprimands the
parents and postpones action one
week and commands that the second
girl be present.
Case No. 4. Husband and wife
have separated. She has taken steps
to procure a divorce. Charged her
husband with drunkenness, infidelity
and cruelty. The evidence made it
clear that her conduct had been an
solacious if not criminal. The judge
proposed to take her 3-year-old child
from her. He had taken one before
and it had been adopted into a good
family. For an hour she wept and
pleaded that the Judge would not
take away her baby. *The Court as
sured her again and again that he
would be glad to give her the child if
he felt that the future of the child
was safe with her. She produced
letters showing that her husband had
reformed and was willing to take her
back. She promises to return and
the .Judge promises to restore her
child when she can give good evidence
that her home is fit for its nurture.
Case No. 5 is that of eleven boys. ;
They have been guilty of stealing five !
gallons of cider, tearing down a ;
fence, flinging mud at houses and
making life miserable for their neigh
bors. They are well dressed, intelli
gent. and evidently from good homes
and good families. • The oldest is 14
or 15 and the youngest 8. The
overworked probation officer. Mr.
Hoenberger. could not see them all
and they, for the most part, have
come in voluntarily. They know that
the Judge is their friend.
Young as they are they belong to
that great class of American youth,
uncontrolled by parents, out at night,
taking eagerly such instruction as
the street affords. They are embryo
anarchists. The Court and probation
officer try to impress them with their
danger and to transform the leaders
in the way of evil into leaders in the
paths of virtue.
The hoys are not marked excep
tions. They are simply illustrations of
the great mob of young anarchists
that infest every town. They are the
derelicts of parents too busy in mak
ing money and attending clubs to
manage their own homes. The Juve
nile Court is needed in all our towns
to buttress up the slender authority
of parents. If men and women do not
think enough of their progeny to care
for them suitably and train them
properly, then they should forfeit the
pleasure of begetting them. Tl^ fam
ily will either perpetuate or over
throw the state.
Ladies Cbject to Profanity.
The woman golfers of New York
have made objections to swearing on
the links and have discussed the mai
ter in their clubs. The men who play
over the links are all supposed to be
gentlemen, but sometimes they are
not careful of their language, and
ladies have been made very indignant
by some speeches. It has been sug
gested that notices be placed in the
clubhouse, but the fact that the
ladies have discussed the subject
will, no doubt, be all that is neces

Flour Output Heavy.
Minneapolis—The flour output here
is approximated at 16,000,000 barrels
and will turn the high water mark,
according to the ntiiiers. It is es
timated that the production will be
between 600,000 and COO.OOO barrels
greater than in 1910.
Fortune Cast Up by the Sea.
A shoal of sperm whales, number
Ing 37 in all, were stranded on a
small sandy island earned Perkins is
land, on the northwest coast of Tas
mania, recently. A syndicate was
formed to exploit there unfortunate
castaways, and nearly every whale
was found to contain ambergris, a
valuable substance greatly in demand
amongst perfumers and others. The
shareholders expect to realise a profit
of between >50.000 and $75.000—a
nice little sum to be cart up by the
sea.—Wide World Magazine.

poor little fellow suffered very much.

little bags cf cloth over his hands to
prevent him from scratching. He was

cago, where we resided at that time.
After trying all the medicine of the
two doctors without any result, we
read of the Cuticura Remedies, and
at once bought Cuticura Soap ..ml
Ointment. Following the directions
carefully and promptly we saw the
result, and after four weeks, the dear
child’s face was as fine and clean as
any little baby’s face. Every one who
saw Gilbert after using the Cuticura
Remedies was surprised. He has a
head of hair which is a pride for any
boy of his age, three years. We can
only recommend the Cuticura Reme
dies to everybody.’’ (Signed I Mrs. H.
