But It does not follow, as some Impractical people would have us btlieve, that there Is no matter, knd that, therefore, it matters not what we eat. It would be no more absurd to say that It matters not what we think, for It Is just as true that all thought Is one as that all matter, and, therefore, all fooc' Is one.

After fifteen years or bitter antagonism Russia and Japan have agreed, by meuns of a binding treaty, to Join hands and interests In China. The treaty Is to go Into effect as soon as signed in duplicate. This acUon guaranteed the status quo in the far EauL State depart ment officials are highly elated over It. No foreign powers aro concerned In this agreement, whlh affects only the contracting nations. The question of mancnurlan railways comes in as the most important article. Russia agrees to consider favorably the neutralization of all the Chinese railway lines, whether owned by China or private corporations, Chinese or foreigs, subjecting them to sheriff regulations In times of war, limiting their use by the bolllgereat and defining their movements. Tbo treaty Itself is an extensive document, which permits no ambiguous Interpretation. AH differences that arise shall bo referred to the United States. Russia's motive for neutralizing the entire Chinese system of railroads Is due to the confidence that such a step would be agreeable to Japan as weU as to the United States. Knox Aids tn Argument. The Influence of the latter's diplomacy Is dlscernablo throughout tho treaty, Russia adhering to the Knox neutralization scheme and Japan approving In decisive terms the exploitation ot China through American money.

Is branded by our officials aa all TJ10 wrltor of tho article question a tbo legality of a connty Jddgo pacing sentence on those sent to tho reform school nnd complains that tho sheriff of Fulton county Is making too much money out of it. Sheriff Johnson sa)s that the wtiaw thing Is praposturous. Ho denlee thnt statement that ho received 11000 last mouth and would receive I MOO tills month and thnt the Slate would pay out $20,000 this year for taking children to tho reform school. There Is also no truth in tho article saying on three conseoutho days three prisoners were taken from this county Instead ot all being takon at the sumo tlmo. In fact, tho whole thing Is a misrepresentation. It is true howovor, that the sheriffs of count! us remote from Lexington receive turgor mileage thuu those near tho place. Uocause thy have moru expense and further to travel, U10 law Justly allows moru. Nothing wrung about that. Uul to couery tho ideu that our officers merit a" crlUeism is an Injustice. The article, without calling any names, reflects upon Judgo Nay-loSheriff Johnson and others, whoso udmlulstratiou of tho county's affairs is abovo reproach, as tho records will show. We have asked thobu gentlemen to furnish us a copy ot tho records so far as this subject Is concerned so that folks can seo exactly what has been paid tho sheriff. This will probably bo printed la Friday's paper. hog-wasr, Russia especially hopes to derive great benefits. She wishes to settle the Chlneg question, and, having eliminated all fear of aggression, will give better attention to Persia, whero she has many Interests. This will open the way, it Is said, for a better understanding with Engiana, which Is tho protecting power over Persia and, as England Is Japan's ally, the arrangement that Is expected to follow will adhere to the wishes of Japan. The ratification of the agreement is expected within the month. How soon the formal announcement will foHow after that Is conjectural. The oxplring treaty with Russia Is an obsolete document and for diplomatic purposes tho two countries have ignored it entirely. Tho Portsmouth treaty will offer no obstacle because of the provision subJccUng it to tho new document. In this connection there enters the treaty to renew American-Japanes- e place the Gresham agreement, which was terminated by Japan ten days ago, and tho oxpected proposal by treaty. Russia for a Russian-AmericaThis will complete vie missing link In the far Eastern triumvirate, so far entered Into by Japan and tho United States and Japan and Russia. Fulton county has a new elecUon commissioner, Mr. J. A. Mllner, of Fulton, who came over yesterday and qualified. This puts tho west end of tho county on the hummer as far as representation is concerned; and whllo Mllner may be tho right man for tho placo, we think this matter should be decided by tho people, and not by tho political boss of Fulton. Just because he puts It In our pipo is no reason wo should smoko it. Besides being unsatisfactory here. It is also opposed by the best clUzena of Fulton. A delegation of her business men wero In town yesterday protesting against tho selection. Theso gentlemen P. II. Weaks, R. M. Phlpps, It. E. Uoldsby, Dr. Horace Luteu and Joe Browder claim It is a scheme concocted by tho leader of tho whiskey gang to get In tho cad-dl- o during tho saloon election whlcli Is to bo held there July 21. It they have this opinion, what are others to think, who ueu Uiu hole in tbo boas' political doughnut? It would bo the best for tho county at largo it one of these commissioners were a man from this end ot the county. We are enUtled to It why didn't wo get it? Tho answer Id simple enough. Wo need a thorough political in this county. Tho boat citizens from ono end to tbo other bavo voiced this sentiment, and now seo "Tho Woman's Dally" Is tho tltlo that they have been to negligent of a new paper that will bo Issued haven't taken sufficient interest at at Fulton beginning today.
