Japan, it has been fashionable to regard
China os a plum cake to be divided

“In 189S the Congressional Campaign
Committee entered upon its work with
strong evidences of a loss of at least
thirty districts east of (he Missouri river.
With this situation confronting us, we
saw the necessity of making a vigorous
light in the free silver sections of the
country. We succeeded, and, while we lost
more than thirty districts east of the Mis
souri river, we carried the lower House
by a majority of thirteen. We enter this
campaign, consequently, with the burden
on us for holding certain districts which
heretofore have been held by the Dem
ocrats, in addition to the necessity of re
taining control of those districts which
usually are carried by the Republicans.
"Owing to the iniquitous election laws
of Kentucky, Virginia and North Caro
lina, we meet the further difficulty of
having the districts now held by Repub
licans* in those three states gravely en
dangered. In Kentucky we now hold but
two districts, one of which we carried
by only ten votes. We are clearly entitled
to at least four districts in Kentucky and
an honest count would give them to us.
The election law of Virginia is as obnox
ious as that of Kentucky, and if it be op
erated this year ns It was in 189S, our suc
cess in those districts which are clearly
Republican will be in doubt.

house can be carried without a struggle.
The contest will be a hard one, but we

was agreed iq>on, the questions under
discussion were* practically settled with
ihe exception of a few minor details.
The establishment of many cotton mills
in fhe Carolines has revolutionized the
cotton movement In the South. The de
mands of these mills for raw material
have entirely altered the old condition of
affairs. They Cannot longer depend on
their own territory for all of the staple

It is estimated that they should have a
standard basis of ra-tes from these cot
ton-producing sections that will enable
them to compete on equal terms with the
New England mills. They have never bad
such a standard basis, ar.d> this fact is
responsible for the amount of time con
sumed in discuss-ion of the two traffic
meetings held here this month. The offi

because they have no old tariff upon
which to form their estimates.

London, June 27.—Nearly 700 Ameiican
engineers were guests this evening at a
dinner of the Institution of the Mechani
cal Engineers. Unhed States Ambassador
Choate, responding to the toast to the
hralth of the Amei leans, referring to the
wond r? of mechanical ingenuity, said:
“The President of the United States, sit
ting in the White House, and Lord Balis
bmy. sirhng at the foreign office, can
s.-nd orders, which within twenty-four
hours, will s t in motion cruisers at # Ma
nila or off the coast of India that may
go side by side to put down an explosion
of medieval barbarism,”
Referring to the benefits of international
courtesies, Mr. Choate said:
“All we want Is to know each other bet
ter. and the more we know of one an
other, take my word for it, the better we
will like one another. I believe that aa
time rolls on the thousand ties of mutual
interests, the threads of the great inter
national skein which bind the two peoples,
will come even closer, always making foi
peace anl civilization, until the people*
are knit together by subtle, imperceptible
strength. We have lived eighty-five yers
lu peace, and we may well look forward
to another eighty-five years of peace.”
A remarkable feature of the evening
was the hostile reception given Gen. Sir
Evelyn Wood, adjutant general of the
colonies, who endeavored to make a gen
eral defense of the conduct of the war in
South Africa by the war office, but was
frequetly interrupted. The superiority of
American engineering was the principal
topic of the .evening, and the general
trend of the speeches wus voiced by the
chairman, who declared It essential that
every young British engineer and metal
lurgist should closely study American
methods if he wished to adcancc in hla
