is authorized by the existing law in
suits between citizens of the same
state; provided, that nothing herein
contained shall prevent a citizen of
another state from suing a corpora
tion in the state of its domicile; and,
provided further, that nothing in this
act shall be so construed as to affect
such cases as are ponding in the
courts of the United States at the time
this act shall take effect."
The British expedition to Thibet,

The trouble between Japan and.
Russia has served to call China's at
tention to the necessity of preserving
her claims in Manchuria, according
to recent dispatches. It is announced

tain its integrity. It is believed, how
ever, that Japan Is really at the head,

posed to partition and who have
agreed together to, defend China.

"Would you take advantage of your
leap year privilege to propose to a.
man?" he asked.
"Only on one condition," sho an

worthy men have, I might oh, don't
be frightened. Mr. Addlepayte, 1

In a Nutshell.
Tho whole truth is that the presi
dent was bent upon building the canal
across Panama to the exclusion of
Nicaragua, and the revolutionary in
cident was precisely in harmony with
his 'stubborn and tempestuous spirit.
It was more spectacular, more daring,
more Roosoveltian, than tho peaceful
process of negotiation-, and he could
not resist the temptation to become a
part of it So, he threw, precedent to
the winds, reversed his government's
policy toward secession, and imperi
ously made history for his administra
tion, and big campaign. Houston
