While Governor Sheldon la bearing up
well there ia no doubt the anxiety of so
many people to be oil Inspector Is weigh
ing Justs a little on bis mind, otherwise
he would not have had such a pat dream
the other night, which he bell-ve ia the
best solution he will ever get of the mat
ter. The governor dreamed that he had
each of the candidates aelect a represen
tative to call upon him. Then the namea
of all the candidates were written on a
long sheet of paper. Each representative
waa told to aerate h a name. The last
name scratched waa to be the oil Inspector
aa he would be the least objectionable to
the entire bunch. The men aid as the
governor suggested and Just aa the last
name waa scratched some one took the
sheet and the governor woke up without
seeing the name so the matter la still up
in the air. The dream was bona fide.

j an teeing the political and commercial In
I terests of the two powers In ths tar east-
Harmonious conferences on the subject
have been going on at Tokio. France haa

Interests in the far east would be ex
tremely vulnerable In the event of war.
At the aame time. It ia explained tfra en
tente will be strictly limited to the main
tenance of the status quo. It does not
touch China and haa nothing resembling
an offensive or defensive feature. Neverthe
less, taken In connection with the Russo
Japanese understanding which shortly will
be concluded, and the Anglo-Ruaaian agree

Anglo-Japanese and Franco-Russian al
liances and the Anglo-French understand
ing, the entente creates a combination In
the far east and a new grouping of the
powers In Europe of extreme significance.
It constitutes in effect another signal evi

It is learned that the recent Japanese
loan floated In Paria and London waa In
volved in the negotiations and that Great
Britain and Russia already have approved
the general lines of the arrangement.
LONDON. May 1 Great Britain haa
been advised that France and Japan are
carrying on negotiations with the view of
reaching an understanding providing for
the maintenance of the status quo In tbe
far east so far aa those nations are con
cerned. The discussions have shown that
France and Japan hold the aame vlewa
with respect to China. While the agree
ment will not go as far aa the Anglo
Japaneee treaty It will remove any exist
ing uneasiness regarding the security of
the French possessions In tbe far east.
The new Russo-Japanese treaty will, tt ia
also believed, embody similar features, so
four nations will soon have practically
entered into a similar understanding not to
