Stepa already have been taken, by the
State department to ascertain the true in

(sador McCormlck at St. Petersburg haa

Russian foreign office a note which, while

Russia's reason for contending for the
closed door in Manchuria la the claim that
the open door Is not a commercial, but a
political question. It . continues to assure
the United States that in some way thla
country's Interests will be protected In
Manchuria. The point Is made that aa the
Manchurlan demands are still In negotia
tion between St Petersburg and Peking, the
United States cannot expect Russia to make
concessions until the fate of Its demand haa
been determined. When China has acceded
to all of these demands, it is suggested,
a trade agreement of some sort can be
reached which will protect American trade
Appreciating the fact that the interests"

There can be no comparison between the

After her first outburst of anger on dis

It Is auspected that Brown waa put for

WASHINGTON, April 26. (Special.)
went Roosevelt has, within the last
i It be known that he emphatically
oWr ives of the bablt of some army and
navy officer of commenting, for publica
tion, upon the relations between this coun
try and Germany. The immediate cause
of this action on the part of tho president
waa the utterance of Admiral Dewey to a
newspsper correspondent In which the hero
of Msnlla aald some things which the Ger
man people have resented. The president
as weil as Secretary Root realise that
there are aeveral matters pending between
the German empire and the United Statea
which have caused friction and which may
lead to exceedingly unpleasant conse
quences. It Is the Intention of the administration
absolutely to silence every officer of the
United States, civil or military, upon the
subject of our foreign relations. It has
been reported that Admiral Dewey haa been
formally rebuked for hla ill-advised talk
with a newspaper friend.
Dewey Doesn't Deny It.
Tht admiral doea not deny that the words
attributed . to him were uttered by biro.
The admiral la not that kind of a man.
Many men In public life, finding themselve
quoted in cold type, have repudiated Inter
views, but Admiral Dewey practically ad
mlts that he was correctly reported In his
recent Interview which attracted such
widespread attention, and he is perfectly
willing to take the consequences. The ad
miral undoubtedly haa heard through the
secretary of the navy that hia talk is re
garded aa exceedingly Injudicious and he
haa been advised of the desire of the pres
ident that he shall hereafter Terrain from
comment likely to produce international
complications. In the meantime. Baron
von Sternburg, the present representative
of the German empire In thla country, in
a speech at a dinner In New York, haa tried
to undo any damage which the talk of the
admiral may have done. Referring to the
strain which the Incidents connected with
Samoan and Venexuelan affairs caused be
tween Germany and the United Statea, the
baron said: "In both cases there was eomo
unpleasantnesa which threatened to pro
duce friction. But all fair-minded men who
have analysed the reaaona which caused
the trouble aeemed to agree that it waa
in no way due to any political or commer
cial queattona which were menacing the
welfare of either country, but it waa due
to a misunderstanding."
Governments Do Their Best.
The German . minister waa undoubtedly
right , in hla statement, , but unfortunately
these misunderstandings, which are of fre
quent occurrence, sometimes lead to war.
Probably it waa the knowledge of thla fact
which led Secretary Root to predict a
conteat at arms between Germany and the
United Statea in the' near future. Both
countries are, however, using all .their
powers of diplomacy to aettle amicably a
numbering of fretting questions which are
atlll bones of contention and of which the
general public knowa but little.
One of the first matters to receive the
attention of the president upon hla return
to Washington will be the Instructions to
the American commissioners who have been
aelected to settle the dispute over the
British-American boundary line. It ap
peara now that the meeting of the com
mlssloners in London may be postponed
until the early autrmn. It will not be aa
easy a matter to aettle aa appeara at first
blush. The American contention, while ap
parently borne out by old Russian maps,
Is most vigorously disputed by the Cana
dian authorltiea and the latest advlcea seem
to iudlcate that they have more basis for
their claims than at first appeared possible.
Still, the work to be ("one will bring out
all the data obtainable not only in the
British and American archives, but In thosq
stored in St. Petersburg aa well. It ap
peared at first that the commission would
be able to complete its labors and to pre.
pare a final report by the time congress re
assembles in regular session In December,
but now it seems more likely that the
negotiattona may extend over many months
and that thla very embarrassing question
may not be aettled for a year or more.
China May Require Troops.
All reports from China coming to the
State department, most of which are not
made public, indicate that the Boxer
troubles are much more serious than press
dispatches show. About the only Informa
tion of the fresh Boxer uprisings which find
their way Into American newspapers Is that
thus far have been able to suppress the
rebels and that no foreign complications
bave arisen. Nevertheless, the secretary
of war la undoubtedly worried over the
continued outbreaks, and be has taken
every precaution possible to Insure the
representation In China of the military
forces of the United States In considerable
numbers and with great promptitude when
ever the occasion for American Interfer
ence may arise. It need surprise no one
to hfar within three months ot that time,
that 6,000 American troops have been or
dered from the Philippines to China to
protect American interests, and It can be
said now that when the necessity arises
the military authorities In Manila will be
ready to send this force thoroughly
equipped more quickly than an Invading
army was ever before transported to a
Corbla Incident May Split Club.
The action of the Metropolitan club In
blackballing General Corbln has created
aomethtng more than a tempest In a teapot
among the club men in Washington. It la
not the first time that the adjutant general
of the army has been humiliated by the
' nd u notorious that personal spite fre-
quently has actuated tbe committee on
membership In "turning down" applicants.
The direct result of tbe Corbln incident
baa been tbe resignation of a number of
tbe most prominent members of the or
ganisation. It now seems more than prob
able that the outcome of the personal spite
shown against th adjutant general of the
army will be the incorporation of a new
rlub upon broader lines than those of the
Metropolitan rlub. It Is understood that
the prime movers In the. plan for a new
social organisatlca Include the president of
th I'nlted States and several members of
bis official family. Among the latter are

HEALTH BOARD IS ON GUARD
Will Be Watchful Lest Bad Fruits
1 or Vegetables Get Paet
Wltb the coming of the sesson of cheap
green fruits and vegetables the Bosrd of
Health Is renewing Its vigilance to prevent
the sale of unwholesome market offerings.
The most glaring violation ot the rules of
health cornea from one of the commission
houses dealing in fruit. Here, one day last j
week, a number of cases of strawberries i
were condemned because of decay and were '
thrown Into, the refuse barrel which la re
moved each day by the scavenger. , While
the fruit was In the barrel a peddlar came
and took from It ten boxes of the con
demned strawberries. A short time after
wards he returned and said that he had sold
them for 10 cents a box. When the man
ager of the house learned what had been
done he forbade a continuance of it, but
nearly a Coxen cases of the condemned fruit
had been placed on the market before tt
It Is reported also to the Board of Health
that some of the peddlers have been In the
habit of securing barrels of radishes which
are so decayed as to be unsaleable and re
moving the decayed portions of tbe vege
tables and eutting off the damaged tops to
sell the radishes by the quart.
When the matter was brought to the at
tention ot the Board of Health It was said
by one of the officials that the commission
men are somewhat to blame tor the prac
tice as they fall to notify the city offlciala
when food is condemned, and the city can
not keep watch at each house. When such
food is condemned by the city II Is made
unsaleable by having kerosene poured over
It. Dr. Ramacciottl, who has charge ol
the condemnation and destruction of food
products In the city, will have the matter
In charge and will make especial effort to
see tbat no unwholesome vegetables are
placed upon the market, but he must hsve
the co-operation ot dealers snd to some
extent of householders before the work can
be made effective.

DECLINES TO LIFT HIS LIDS
Hotel Guest Sleeps Despite Vigorous
Efforts of Other to Awaken
Saturday eenlng a stranger, apparently
perfectly sober, sat down !a a chair at the
St. James hotel and fell asleep. All efforts
to awaken him were unavailing, and he
was carried to a cot end laid on It. His
breathing was natural and he snored lustily.
During the night he fell off the cot, but
was not awakened, and neither could he
be awakened, though every means was tried.
He awoke early this morning and aeemed
to be much refreshed by hia sound sleep,
but knew nothing of where be had been
up to a few moments before he came Into
tbe hotel. He felt in bis pockets and found
that hia money was all there. He Is of the
impression that he may bave been beguiled
Into a saloon and drugged, but succeeded In
getting away from the place before tbe
drug began to have any effect. He haa
Just an Indistinct remembrance ot someone
