He gave the United States a new standing among the world powers and bis adherence to lofty principles won for him a name and fame which shall endure long years to come. His public career begun as associ­ ate and secretary of .President Lincoln and ever since, in one BtatJon or anrther. he has been Identified with the men who have made history and he has contributed his full share thereto.

Events have moved swiftly in the Fat; East the past week The fight­ ing In Manchuria has been over­ shadowed entirely by the revolution ary movements on the part of mutineers ia the Black sea fleet and soldiers on land at Odessa. The unprecedented spectacle of a power­ ful modern battleship, Kniaz Potern- Ine. cruisiDg arouod in the Black Sea iu the hands or a crew who under the rules of international law cannot be regarded as otber than pirates and of the*Admiral in com­ mand of tne rest of the Black 8ea fleet frankly confessing his inability to cope with the situation and ordering that the tires of bis war­ ships be drawn, has stupefied the Admiralty. And well it may' When a nation's own battleships run up tbe black flag of mutiny against the govern­ ment it is no wonder that the czar and hia councillors are stupefied If the Government shall escape utter annihilation It will be little less than miraculous. In the meantime some little advance has been made toward peace between Russia and Japan. President Roosevelt has announced that tbe two governments have appointed the plenipotentiaries to meet here as soon as possible after August 1 The two Russian pleni potentlaries are amDassador Mura vleff, now Ambassador at Borne and Ambassador Rosen. The Japanese plenipotentiaries are Baron Eomura, now Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Minister Takahira. The plenipotentiaries will be intrusted with full power to negoti­ ate and conclude a treaty of peace, subject of course to ratification by their respective home Governments.
