HILL ADVISES BETTER FARMING
points to the Orient as Market for
American Surplus Wheat.
Grand Forks , N. D. , Aug. 31. James
J. Hill attended the meeting of the
Old Settlers' association of North Da
kota at the state fair and made an ad
dress , saying : "A good farm of ICO
or 320 acres Is a comfortable , happy
home. A man can be a prince on his
own farm. You rob your children of
their heritage when you sell the farm.
Keep the boys on the farm. Learn to
do better and more extensive farm-
Ing. The state of North Dakota could
not raise grain enough to bake ten
biscuits per capita for the inhabitants
f China. That Is a market that seema
to me to be unlimited. I wont to sea
better farming , becausr U In the state
of Minnesota they got the same
nual return per acre of cultivated land
that they get In Iowa , the state ol
Minnesota would have $80,000,000 D
year more money and tbat is too much
to waste. "

tlon of American RoaJ Makers. A. N
Johnson , highway engineer of the
United States department of agricul

Alms and Purposes of the Office o

terestlng statistics showing that $50

RUBBI. . 'q Mtary Party Thinks Wltte
Could Y"Made ? Better Terms
No Word r'rom Japan About Recep
tlon of Tidings.
Portsmouth , N. H. , Aug. 31. Actual
work of drafting the "treaty ot Ports
mouth" has boon begun. It was dona
by M. De Martens and Mr. Donnlson ,
acting ns legal advisers for the re
spoctlvo sides. While the "bases" ot
peace have been accepted by the plenl
potentiarles , consideiable detail re
mains to bo worked out In the elabor
ation of the articles of the tieaty.
This Is especially true in regard to
the articles dealing with the Chinese
Eastern railway and the surrender of
the leases of the Liao Tung peninsula
end Port Arthur and Talienwan
( Dalny ) .
Expected Wltte to Fall.
A very anomalous situation exists
as to the Impression created by the
conclusion of peace. While the out
side world applauds , In Japan there
Is evidently great disappointment In
the terms , and in Russia , where It
would seem that there should be unl-
Tersal rejol&Ing over the great diplo
matic victory M. Witte has won , the
government seems to have received It
cdldly. With the people it will make
M. Witto a great ana popular figure
and add to his laurels , but at court
evidently the very victory that M.
Wltte has achieved , makes It all the
more bitterly resented. It Is an open
secret that when the emperor ap
pointed M. Wltto chief plenipotentiary
the "military party" expected him to
fail. Instead , upon the very terms
upon which the emperor told Mr.
Meyer he would make peace and upon
which the military party did not be
lieve it possible for peace to be nego
tiated , M. Witte succeeded In securing
a treaty honorable and , under the cir
cumstances , favoiable to Russia This
ha ? evidently only exasperated hlb
enemies the more , ana Intrigue is
npaln at work to discredit him. Since
Japan was In a conciliatory mood ,
they say he made a mistake In surren
dering half of Sakhalin. Yet ho did
FO bv the car'8 orders nnd himself
Insists that personally ho would have
stuck to the end to his original decla
ration not to cede territory or give
indemnii.v.
No Word From Japan. ,
Not a word or a line about the re
ceipt of the news ' "raea out of Japan.
In view of the altu . ton , both at Toklo
and St. Petersbuic" alarmists are In
clined to make much of the fact that
the minutes of Tuesday's fateful meet
ing have not been signed by the pleni
potentiaries of the two powers. It Is
pointed out that either side could still
repudiate the agreement , but both
plenipotentiaries refuse to admit even
the possibility of sucb a happening.
The following statement of the Japa
lese argument which governed their
decision to waive the question of ln <
demnlty can bo accepted as AUlho lta <
live. Japan realized fully she was
making a sacrifice for peace , but she
was looking to the future. It was not
a question of whether the war could
be successfully continued , but of
whether peace was not now more ad
vantageous to Japan. Japan had al
ready gained all she fought for. H
was only "the spoils of war" that re
mnlncd/nnd having achieved the real
objects of the war she could afford to
forego the spoils rather than be placed
In the position of fighting for money
While Japan believed she was en
titled to the spoils , she felt that her
position was so strong , her successes
EO complete that she could yield with
out detracting from the force of her
victory.
The armistice was not arranged ,
nnd It Is not Improbable that the
armistice will bo concluded directly
by the generals on the field of battle.

NOT YET OUT OF THE WOODS
President Roosevelt's View of Situa
tion at Portsmouth ,
Oyster Hay. N. Y. , Aug. 31. "Wills-
tip softly , wo arc getting Into the thin
timber , but we are not yet out of the
woods. " This homely admonition rep
resents nccuintely President Reese
velt's view of the situation at Ports
mouth Pence Is In sight , but Is not
yet an accomplished fact. Profoundly
as ho is gi at Hied at the results al
ready achieved by the plonlpoten
flarios , the president realizes fully
that the most Important work remains
yet to be done Until that Is ncroin
.pllshed , It Is scarcely the part of wls
dorn , he thinks , to do rnoro than
"whistle softly"
The president has no definite Idea
how long the plenipotentiaries may b .
engaged In the negotiations of the
treaty of peace He believes that It
ought not to take a great length of
time , because the points of difference
having been resolved , the Incorpora
tlon of the tentative ngreemen'
reached becomes piactlcally only a
question of phinseology. The import
nnce of the text or the various sec
tions of Ihe ticnty Is not mlnimlxed
by the president and he appieciates
thoroughly that obstacles may arlsr
at any monunt that might d ( lay serl
ously the negotiations , or possibly
wieck them entirely. The woods wll
not be cleared entirely until the treaty
la signed and scaled.

of "neglect of duty , " and disapprove *
the court of inquiry's finding that the
Bennlngton was "in an excellent sta'
of discipline and in good and efflclen *
condition. '
Ensign Wade was In charge of th °
machinery The action as to Com-
maruler Young was taken In vlow of
the fact that the court of Inquiry In
Its findings and opinion did not pass
expressly upon hU conduct and the
question of his responsibility for the

ever , approves the court of Inquiry's
endorsement of the creditable conduct
of all the survivors of the crew of the

'air as appropriations warranted. The
Investigation was conducted by Solic
itor George P. McCabe and approved
by Secretary Wilson In the following
comment :
"Inquiry discloses the fact that Dr.
Salmon had an unfortunate connection
with the firm of George B. Howard &
Co. While this connection was not an
Ideal realization of a government olll-
cor to have with n firm doing business
with the department , I am convinced
that Dr. Salmon never Intended to
profit by work done by Mr. Howard
for the department of agriculture and
that ho has never been connected
with the Howard Label company or re
ceived any benefit from the contract
of that company with the department.
The case does not seem to call for
