The appointment by Russia and Japan
of two peace plenipotentiaries euch I
another Important step toward peace. It
U stated that these representative of
the two governments will meet In Wash
ington ubout the beginning of next
month find that they will have full au
thority to negotiate a permanent treaty
of peace. It appear that the Japanese
government instated upon the plenipoten
tiaries being given thl power, Instead of
meeting for a merely tentative consid
eration of terms that might bo proposed,
and that this requirement on the part of
Japan had the support of I'resldent
Roosevelt, upon whose representation
the Russian government wa Induced to
accede. Consequently when the reprc-
aentatlve of the belligerents meet In
conference It will be for the specific pur
pose of negotiating a treaty and not
Imply to talk over terms.
In the meuntlme there Is uncertainty
a to whether nn armistice can be ar
ranged In advance of the meeting of the
peace conference. It I under t nod that
active effort are being mude to effect
a cessation of hostilities pending the
discussion of pence terms, but there
seems to bn doubt whether this can be
accomplished. The Indication are that

subject made by the t'hamlier of Com
merce of imrtmund, la which It Is said
tlmt a strong navy, commanding respect,
Is demanded by the lurge majority of the
German people. It Is further suld that
the conviction gain ground that under
the present world condition a nation
can only maintain It Independence, pro
tect It interest and attain far-reaching
alms through sea power. "Statesmen
and diplomats," says the declaration of
these commercial men, "may Judge
whether public opinion In thl connec
tion Is right, but we, who have the Inter
est of commerce, the lnJustrle and sea

that purely sols-r, economic reasons urge

Tli rcult based on previous experi

WHERE L4.ZIRs IS A DISEASE.
Medical Treatment for an Ailment
Too Common In the' Tropics.
Down in Porto Klco tho government is
curing jjislness with medicine instead of
with a strap. In one hospital near the
center of the island 4.600 cases were treated
last year, and the proportion of cures was
so )are that the population is reported to
tie taking on new hope and ambition. For
three or four years now a good deal has
buen beard about the hock worm, a germ
which infects Its victim with laziness or
takes out all their energy. It Is chiefly
found in tropical climates, but our own
clay eaters in the Carolina have been af
flicted with it to a considerable extent.
The disease has been more fiercely epidemic
in Porto Rleo than In any other region
where It has ' come under scientific treat
ment. Heretofore the Porto means have
regarded the victims of thl marked lassi
tude as Incurable, as a generation ago we
regarded the Inan stricken with consump
tion. A three persons out of four fell
under the spell, the possibility of work or
progress on the Island was ended. Study
showed that this disease was caused by the
hook worm, and the report of the large por
tion of cures in the hospital at Albonlto la
an official document sent to Washington
by Captain li. K. Ashford, head of the
commission to Investigate anemia on the
island. The hospital had an appropriation
of $6,000, and on that sum It treated 4,000
patients, all suffering with this microbe.
Proper feeding ha a good deal to do with
the cure, but the cause of the laziness la
the hook worm, which absorbs the valu
able particles from the blood. The system
has to be rid of the parasite before cure is
possible. Sanitation plays a large part In
the treatment also. With the wonders
which sanitation is working In Cuba and
Porto Rico, and with the promises made for
It In Panama, we may yet live to see the
terrors of a tropin climate reduced to at
least manageable and bearable proportions.

VSIOI PACIFIC STOCK.
Some Remarkable Fluctuations and
Its Present State.
New York Evening Post.
No stork ha moved so erratically on
this years market as Union Pacific. Start
ing from 113 on January S the common
Bhares touched on February as
against a "record price" of 133, even in the
great boom of 1'1. On May 22 It was
back at Hi; last Tuesday it touched U3
again. What did this unusual vacillation
mean? Partly. If Wall street belief Is ac
cepted, that very wealthy "inside" capital
ists were speculating on an enormous scale
and at the expense of the speculating out
side public. But partly that the com
pany's actual position and purposes regard
ing dividend were highly confusing.
The October dividend upon Union Pacific
Is usually declared in August. That it will
he. Increased this year from the 4 per cent
annual figure maintained since 10 has
long been Wall street's expectation. The
factor that govern Union Pacifies divi
dend, however, are more Intricate than
those which govern the dividend of any
other property. Adjustment of the west
ern railroad situation, which was to fol
low the dissolution of the Northern Se
curities company, has not yet assumed
tangible shape; no one can yet say what
Union Pacific will do with it forty odd
millions of stock of Northern Taclflc and
Great Northern, In whose affairs It no
longer has a voice. Calculation of Union
Pacific's own future surplus, available for
dividend, will somewhat depend on these
Viewed from the ordinary standpoint of
earnings a B per cent dividend would not
be at all unreasonable. Some $2,106,787
measures tho Increase In net earnings
scored by Union Pacific in ten months of
th fiscal year that has Just ended, and
this amount was saved out of a gross gain
of $3,278,000. Last year the 4 per cent
paid upon the common stock required $4.
3S0.S38 and there remained out of the year'
earnings $8,23,fJ0O, o that nearly 12 per
cent In all was earned on the stock then
outstanding. This year's increase would
bring the rate up to about 14 per cent.
But Union Pacific common stock is a
variable quantity. In 3M about $:rw.o.noo
was outstanding on which 12 per cent was
earned, and there were $S7,OTnft:o of con
vertible bonds. Now over $Y.ono,inO of these
bonds have been converted Into common
stock, leaving only some $3ft,000,000 uncon
verted, and It Is necessary to keep an eye
to the situation which will exist when all
shall be so converted. There will then be
$19C.ooo,ooo of common stock, and no con
vertible bonds. So long as the stock paid
only 4 per cent the disbursement wa the
same, whatever the relative amount of
stock and convertibles, for the bonds too
paid 4 per cent. But Increase In the divi
dend would alter the situation. On the
basis of last year's earnings the whole
issue of common stock, assuming all of
these bonds converted, would earn about
si per cent. At the present rate of earn
ings thlB record would bo raised to nearly
10 per cent.
It has all along been expected that the
Increase In Union Pacific's common stock
would be counterbalanced by increased in
come from some of the $341,000,000, par
value, of aecuritles held in th company's
treasury securities which give Union Pa
clflo control of about 17,000 miles of rail
road and a share In the Income of many
companies that it does not actually control.
The $90,000,000 of Bouthern Paclflo stock
that Is owned ha not yet paid any divi
dend, but the Income that will eventually
be received from it ha all along been
counted upon lo offset the increase in the
capital stock through the conversion of the
convertible bonds. Each 1 per cent paid
upon Southern Pacific stork would give to
the Union Pacific nearly H per cent upon
its entire enlarged Issue of common stock.
In other word, whenever Southern Pa
cific shall become a dividend payer Union

For the menace 1 dumb that defied her.
