PARIS. Aug. 5 'Special Cablegrsm to I
The llc. ) Not since t lie meeting on the
Field of the Cloth of Gold hti there been a
coming together of two sovereigns which
has attracted ns much attention as the,
mysterious meeting fn the North s'ea of
Emperor William nnd th czar.
.This is the way the leading Paris news
papers'are talking of the situation Every
where It Is recognized Ihnt the meeting Is
of tHTitendou Import In world politics. It
Is r"? inlcfl h. indicating thnt there Is an
understanding between Germany and Rus
sia wli'i'h will at least demonstrate to the
world that the "y llow peril " will be held In
c' n k. The consensus of the opinions of
the greatest writers upon European politics
Is to the efT-ct tlint the kaiser has prac
Hr'f'llv nssuT'ed the that the Japanese
sHn 11 not be nllnwrd to exact terms which
nnot be met. And In n case of Inst re
sort fjerninn bnvone's may be relied upon
to suppress any rebellion within the' of the czar In other words. If
It becor ,s absolutely pecessirv the kaiser
will protect the czar ngnlnst outside In
vasion and agulnst the worst phases of In
ternal rebellion. This Is believed to Indi
cate that the German emperor has be on me
practically a protector, or. as one writer
has It, a "hlg brother of the czar."
Drive France to Britain.
This !s now believed to be the secret of
the entente cordiale between France and
Great Britain. The Rrest festivities demon
strated a feeling of friendship between the
two nations which might have been re
garded as absolutely Impossible a few years
ago. The scene at Rrest Is one that will
linger long In the memories of the world.
The Incidents which occurred there were
not so noteworthy perhaps If taken by
i themselves. If standing alone. Rut taken
as a part of a new alignment among the i
nations of the earth, It Is Interesting. If not
significant. For Instance. It should be re
membered that the entente cordiale between
France and Great Britain means the estab
lishment of cordial relations between
France and Japan, since Japan Is regarded
as Riituln's ally.
The question which Is today agitating
all Europe Is whether the czar of all the
Russia haa crtme to the conclusion thnt
Germany, a nation to a large extent re
aponslve to the will of the kaiser, Is bet
ter able to protect him on his throne than
a nation like France, where public senti
ment must he consulted. This being the
case, does It mean that the old-time allU
nee between France and Russia Is to be
abandoned, a new alliance between Rus
sia and Germany taking Its place?
If this Is the rase, the growing friend
ship between France and England on til"
cue side and between Germany and Rus
sia on the other can be understood.
The Oaulols, In Its comments upon the
Brest festivities and M. Delcasse's move
ments, says that the entente cordiale be
tween France and England Is the unques
tionable work' of M. Delcasse. The ex
change of the visits of the two fleets at
Brest, according to the Oaulols, Is the
sanction of the new alliance between
France and England. Just as the military
reviews In the camp of Chalons In 16
and at Betheney In 1901 constituted nrnc,
tlcally the sanction of the Franco-Russian
Statements of Delrasse.
Therefore the statements of M. Delcasse
take high rank. While they cannot be
regarded as official documents, neverthe
less thry are more Interesting than many
documents. In his latest announcement,
after affirming that he had succeeded In
establishing harmony among the three
I.tln nations, M. Delcasse remarked In
reference to the entente cordiale with
England thut "serious and efficacious policy
la not carried on with sentiments of sym
pathy or antipathy, with memories and
regrets, with retrospective considerations.
It was based upon the present and upon
material interests. Where wuuld be the
Interests of FranceT On the side of Ger
many or on the side of England? Our
commercial balance sheet can at once fur
bish the reply. Which is the better cus
tomer? England. We sell It every year

merchandise. Read the commercial sta
tistics. What does Germany buy from us?

that the war with Japan Is on it ! doubt
ful whether the government will be willing
to confess Its weakness and allow outside
aid and assistance, no matter how many
people may be starving In the Interior of
According to the reports at hand from
the provinces there will be a total failure
of the crop In many districts of central,
eastern and northern Russia, and as a re
sult the famine In store for the affected
districts will undoubtedly far surpass the
famines In the years of 1P91 and 1S97.
From the governments of VJatka. Kasan
saratoff. Samara. Yekaterlnooslav, Tarn-
boff. Orel and R.lasah the zemstvos report
a total failure of the crops so far as winter
and" summer corn. pea, beans and cattle
food are concerned.
A bad harvest Is predicted from the gov
ernments of Moscow, Novgorod, Tula,
Kursk, Tver and Tskoff, while, on the
other hand, southern Russia has a fair
But the misfortunes In the districts of
central, eastern and northern Russia are
likely to be all the worse because the men
In the districts mentioned have been called
In as reserves, and all that remain behind
are women, children and old men, In
capable of work and unable to procure
bread for themselves and for their families
In consequence the women of many vil
lages have revolted and 'have marched In
crowds to the local police stations, where
they declared that they did not want to die
and that they would not leave the central
police stations until their husbands were re
stored to them.
Up to the present time the government
has maintained an attitude of absolute In
activity toward all of these manifestations
and It Is believed that nothing will be done
unil, as usual. It Is too late and until
famine, typhus and scorbut have broken
Thla year, seeing that most of the rail
roads have handed over the larger rart of
their rolling stock to the management of
the Siberian, railway for war purposes, the
provisioning of the famine districts will
naturally involve far greater difficulties
than usual, as the railways cannot even
cope with the ordinary trade and commerce,
nt the same time taking care of the for
ward movement of the troops constantly
going on In the direction of Manchuria.
Warnings to prepare for all eventualtles
and to buy cereals for the threatened dis
tricts are daily being received by the
ministry of the Interior from the zemstvos,
but the government does nothing and to
all Intents and afpearances It would seem
as though It Is relying upon a miracle to
resurrect the burned up crops.
Should famine among the peasants of a
large part of Russia be added to the
troubles growing out of the war with Japan
It Is believed that rebellion among' the
peasants will be Increased, and it may be
difficult. If not impossible, to put down
the uprisings In the future. Indeed It may
be next, to impossible for the government
to-carry on the war with Japan In case the
troops are absolutely required to suppress
rebellions In central, northern and eastern
Russia, caused by famine.
It Is believed that the representations of
the zemstvos regarding the famine possi
bilities have been giving the czar more
trouble than all of the other questions com
bined and that they were the subject of
several earnest conferences with M. Witte
before his departure for America on his
errand of peace. If the situation should be
come too bad It Is likely that the peace-at

LONDON, Aug. 5 (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) The Board of Trade has driven
the thin end of the decimal wedge a little
further Into the table of British weights
and measures. Two years ago the board
authorised the use of 60-pound weights a
Liverpool, and at a meeting of the; Dock
board Just held It Is stated that the de
partment has now legalised the use of
20-pound. 10-pound and 5-pound weights.
The business of Liverpool was greatly
simplified by the 50-pound weight; the new
weights will simplify It still more.
The weights of the American goods
which form the staple at the port's trade
had under the old system to be translated
into their BrltlBh equivalent before they
could be checked on this aide.
While the English pound Is the ezac
equivalent of the American pound, the
American exporter does not know the

Asked whether the threats cf conflict
that had bven forthcoming since the be
ginning of the Morocco Incident did not
appear to him serious, M. Delcasse replied:

The announcement that J. J. Hill would
return to St. Paul about August 10 was
welcomed by the telegraphers, who ask htm
to Intervene. It Is believed by the union
men that the cost of maintaining the
struggle s,nd the prospects- of loss from
tock and train shipments will cause Mr.
Hill to take a hand ln bringing about a
settlement. Both railroads are giving the
strikers to understand that their places
will not be available for them after they
have been' once fjll'ed. Manager Horn of
the Northern Pacific says he is having no
difficulty ln obtaining strike breakers, 150
applications being on file for work at his
office tonight. Applicants are being exam

to man the wires. It 1b understood that
a large number of the applications being
made to the roads are from women.

stances and conditions the Chinese govern
ment has already commenced the construc
tion of the 12o-mlle line to Kalgan, a con
tract for a large portion of the rails hav

These financial successes are disposing
the Chinese to regard railways in the most

The State department of Colorado Is
deeply interested and the veterans will re

The Mayflower Is In command of Com
mander Cameron McR. Wlnslow, President
Roosevelt's naval aide, .who was detailed
to this duty as a special mark of distinc
tion to the peace commission by the presi
dent. Before the arrival of the president and
the envoys, the cabins of the Mayflower
were handsomely decorated with flowois.
The luncheon table In the main saloon was
laden with flowers. . No attempt was made
to decorate the cabins of the vessel with
flags, care being exercised ln every feature
of the ceremony attendant upon the recep
tion not ln the slightest way to offend the
sensibilities of the guests of the occasion.
Precedents Are Avoided.
In order that no question of precedence
should arise. It was determined that the
luncheon should be a buffet function. In
this way was avoided the necessity of seat

gangway a few minutes after the noon
hour to ascend to the deck of the May
flower, the first gun of the presidential
salute of twenty-one guns boomed Its wel

of blue and gold was broken out at the

been made apmngst a series of ancient
documents collected from the archives of
the Carergl family, and presented to the
Royal Institute of Sciences and Letters at
Venice by Slgnor Cesara Levi. An Inspec
tion of these documents has revealed the
Identity of Othello, the protagonist of
Shakespeare's tragedy, who proves to have
been one Nicolas Querlnl, son of Fran

of Palma Querini. Both belonged to noble
Venetian families and were related to each
The episode ormlng the plot of the
tragedy occurred ln 1542 at the church of
St. Franelscus at Kethlmo, in C'aadla,
where Desdemona had taken refuge. The
church has now been converted Into a

which has also been discovered. It appears
that he was an Intimate friend of Cynthlo,

ing In a serious condition. Mgr. Chappelle
recently returned from Havana, being the
apostolic delegate to that island and In
practical charge of all the affairs of the
Roman Catholic church there.
Tho marine hospital service has not yet
taken control of the situation here. Dr.
White received advices at midnight last
night Indicating that he would be placed In
charge, in accordance with the messagq
of President Roosevelt to General Wyman,
but so far as known here, the definite
orders have not been received. Dr. White
went to Gulf Port and Fontalnbleau today
to get Dr. Wasdln of the marine hospital
service who Is In charge of the Missis
sippi quarantine, and Governor Vardeman
who went down from Jackson, hut did not
return here tonight, as was expected.
City Will Co-operate.
The city will continue to exercise its po
lice authority In co-operation with the fed
eral surgeons; the municipal authorities
and the citizens' committees are to carry
on the campaign of cleaning up, the two'
health boards are to perform many of thelt
functions In conjunction with the marine
hospital service and New Orleans expects
still to be called upon to furnish funds to
carry on the fight. The actual handling of
tho fever situation Itself Is to pass to tho
direction of the government, which Is ex
pected to send a large number of yellour
fever experts to work tinder the mipervlsloa
of Dr. White. Rigid rules are to be made
and efficiently carried out In connection
with the scientific treatment of cases. The
federal officers make no attempt to conceal
the fart that the situation Is serious, but
they say It Is not without hope, and that
success is possible ln spite of the headway
the fever has gained, particularly In the
foreign neighborhoods below Canal street.
The fact that the Infection In the First,
Fourth, Sixth and Seventh municipal dis
tricts, which He above Canal street and
constitute modern New Orleans, Is rela
tively small, leads to the hope that vigi
lant observation of all cases In that quar
ter, whllo the more direct campaign pro
gresses below, will enable the authorities
to keep more than half of the city fres
from serious Infection. Of the deaths to
date only five have occurred above Canal
