Fifteen or twenty yearn ago the great
est possible strateglo Importance was at
tached to Port Arthur aad there were
periodical alarms that Its occupation by
Rusala would prove a caiua belli on the
part of Great Britain. Then there came
the great flourish ot trumpets over the
British occupation ot Wel-hal-wel, fol
lowed later oa by the unwilling admiaslon
that the place waa of no use as a naval
base, although tt might be a nice, healthy
spot for a sanatorium. Now the glory of
Port Arthur haa almost all departed, and
the probability la that Russia would
abandon It altogether If she had not spent
so much money there. It was expected to
prove the great southern terminus and
commercial depot ot the Manchurlaa rail
way, bat this Is the position oeoupled by
Daisy, while Port Arthur Is reached by a
loop line. It has been deserted by nearly
all tts merchants, who have migrated to
Dalny, and exists only aa a military and
aaval headquarters. Even as a naval sta
tion It will be of Inferior rank to Vladi
vostok. Some Russian naval experts have
already advised the government to follow
the example of England at Wel-hal-wel
and withdraw from tho place, but It hi not
likely that this advice will be taken, as
retirement would not only be aa offense
to national pride, bat a confession of error.
The people of Jspaa are beginning to
recognise that to maintain a big standing

Japan that can bo further taxed to secure
the sums required without eataillag undue

While the donations which have beea
made by gift aad bequests to educational,
charitable and religious Institutions during
1901 fan tar short of thoee which were
made ia 1)01, still they are greatly la ex
cess of those of aay year prior to 1301.
Ia 1 the total of S2, 41.304 waa thought
to be a large one. but la 1H. the record

ISS.T11 was reached. This year the total
is tT7.14.lS7. which Is far above the aver
age, leaving oat last year's. It is doubt
ful whether this amount will be given in
1900. as the needs for giving will be fewer,
the competition of millionaires te keep on
the good side of tho publie will not be so
Intense, aad some channels of distribution
will be closed.
Educational Institutions have had their
fair share of gifts. One hundred and forty-
four of them have received S27.SO0.S0t In
sums ranging from 11.060 te 11. 000. COO and
upward in Individual donations. Churches
and religious societies here received S4.K9,.
