WASHINGTON, AU*:. L".I.—Th» state de- lartim-nt lias n<c'Hivc<l information from Yokohama that Pi niiiir Ito, who was al- 10 iiitniKtiir of thr i:iUTior and secretary of tlm .T»iinn«sc i-nliim-i, has resigned. Though no dvtuils rt'gardiug the direct cause of thci resignation of Count Ito have Ijonn received by cable, the indirect cause Is believed to have beon the foreign policy which has divided Japan intu two hostile parties ever sincn the conclusion of the war between China and Japan. The pep- plo of Japan woro united as one man in favor of the war with China, and something of thu triumph of Japan in this conflict was undoubtedly due to this unison of sentiment at home and in the field. 1'hero was a fueling of disappointment COUNT ITO. among the rank and file of the army u well as amoug^the people at large, because the war did not result in the entire downfall of the Chinese empire—the ancient uueiny of Japan. Hut the terms of the treaty of ShimnnuM'ki went so favorable to the Japanese that the failure to completely overthrow the ruling dynasty in China might perhaps liavo been forgiven. The treaty of peace agreed upon at Sbimonoee- 1:1 on April 17 was ratified at Chefoo, China. May 8. The attempted assassination of the Chinese statesman, Id Hung Chung, by a native of Japan, while this treaty was being arranged, IB said to have Influenced Japan to greatly modify her claims. This attempt upon the life of an embassador while on a mission of peace cauend something of a revulsion of feel- Ing throughout hot b tbo orient and Occident. But oven the treaty ratified at Cho- foo was a modification of the original treaty agreed upon at .Shiinonoseki—a treaty in which so many of the Japanese thought that Japan had yielded all the concessions possible uuder the circumstances. In the matter of these modifications arranged for at Chefoo the Japanese commissioners. Count Ito, the prime minister, and Viscount Mutsu, the minister of foreign affairs, yielded to the demands of Kiisnia, backed by Germany and Franco, and restored the whole of the Leotong peninsula to China, including the f ortrcss- ns greatly prized from the military viewpoint. Then followed in quick succession the troubles in Korea. It was felt that the war between China and Japan having originally beon brought about by Korean complications thai Japan was entitled to the lion's share of the fruits of victory. The Japanese were enraged when it was learned that Russia had taken advantage of the revolts In Korea; that Hnssia hnd acquired the upper hand iu llm mastery of Korea, and that through extremely favorable, trimly arrangements with both China and Korea Kussia had been able to secure ports on tin- Pacitlc ocean as the termini of the Trnnssiberian railway—ports in close proximity t" iho shores of Japan, ports not affected l>y ice and stiow—ports open the year round. There was a feeling thai Japan, triumphant In war, had been outwitted In the field of diplomacy; that the people of Japan hnd been engaged In the thankless tank of "pulling the chestnuts out of the lire for Russia," Naturally the blame for this exiting condition ttf affairs came down upon the heads of the present cabinet, for the average native of Japan still bolivus that "the king can do no wrong." Count Ito*a Promotion. The Japanese emperor, however, did one thing which precipitated the present cabinet crisis. He made Count Ito, the prime minister, a nmniufci, without the lattor's consent. The reasons for this promotion nt the present time are probably not known to any person except to the emperor himself. It lias beon intimated that the emperor tried '« extricato himself from a dillioult position by shelving a prime minister already discredited by the people through the not unheard method of a promotion iu rank. Count Ito at first rof used U> accept the title of marquis, giving as his reason that It would not be honorable for him to accept while bis colleagues in tin- cabinet remained unhonorod. Count •Yamagata, the minister of war, declined the title also, giving reasons similar to those advanced l>y Count Ito. the prime minister. The emperor, however, oom- manded Count Ito to remain at his post He ai-cepied the title of marquis a year ng,i ami a downfall of the ministry at that time was averted. Tlie relations of the various members of the cabinet continued to remain strained until Count Ito insisted upon his resignation being aooepted. Count Ito, whose resignation from the portfolio of prime minister of Japan, will attract attention all over the civilized world, is said to be one of the most brilliant characters of the orient of today. Originally a descendant of one of the ruling famil'ies of Japan, after obtaining an education in the schools and universities of his native country he commenced the study of the arts and of mechanics. He paid particular attention to telegraphy In order to apply the most modern methods to war as well as to peace. Ho became the controlling puwer iu the government organ at Tokio. and his rise to fame was rapid. He was a member of the cabinet before the war with China broke out, and in the summer nf 1S94 he was put in command of the naval forces of Japan engaged against China off the coast of Korea. For the victories at Wei-Hal-Wei and Port Arthur he wa.- in a large measure responsible. He was recalled to Japan in March, }«>;>. for the purpose of taking part in the peace negotiations then being conducted with China. TeKtlnc the EiBht Hour t*w.

Afu-r thanking them for their generous reception, Mr. lirynn said in part: "lam glad to notice here the mothers and wives, as well as the sons and husbands, because, my friends, our causo is the cause in which the whole family is interested.

I am glad that at this meeting we are having as the presiding oilicer a man, who until this year, lias voted the Republican ticket. I am glad because some of the nuwspapers parade before tho public the mimes of prominent Democrats who are going to desert the ticket, and I am glad that for every Democratic deserter we are to have accessions from tho Republican pnrty mo»e than enough to make up the difference. "Politics is a practical question, it is so simply bucuuse it can bo comprehended by our people. I want to talk practical politics to you for a littlo while this afternoon. Neitlu.r in, timi- um- my physical strength will permit- all uxtemii-d discussion of the issuus i if the campaign. But I desire to suggi-st fiomu thoughts which may help you in your study of tho issues and your determination of the part which you shall Uike. I want to ruad to you an extract from a speech inado by John G. Carlisle in ISTS, and I want you to mark the political philosophy therein set forth. He was bpeaking on an amendment to the Bland act. and he used these words: 'If the execution of this measure could be In- trusted to a public officer whose opinions on the subject were in accord with those of a great majority of the American people'—let me pause for a moment to say that if it was desirable at the time to have tho secretary of tlie treasury in accord with the opinion of tho vast majority of tho American people, it would be a good thing today to have the secretary of the treasury in accord with o majority of the American people. He said further, 'and whoso sympathies,' mark the words— •and whose sympathies were with the struggling masses who produce tho wealth anil pay the taxes of the country rather with the idle holders of idle capital, the provision alluded to would bo of little consequence, because he would coin the maximum instead of tho minimum amount »lluwt>d by the amendment. 33ut, situated as vvii urn, we all know, or at best, we all h.-ivo reason to believe, that not a dollar beyond the minimum amount will bo corned :iml consequently tlie process of getting this money into circulation will bo too sluw to afford the full measure of relief which the peoplo now demand and need.' Divided Society Into Two Claises. ' Mark those words. John G. Carlisle divided society into two classes. On the onu eiile h" put llm iillu holders of idle capital, on the other fidu ho put the Btrug- u" mnsKiw, who produce the wealth and p:iv 7li<- tnxoH of tin- c-oan-.ry. If that division cxfcu-d then, it rxisi* today. Aloro Uiiin that, John U. Carlisle said that if a ! ublic ollicLT sworn to i!o his duty would lie c.imrollrd in his official conduct by his -ympathios, and if his sympathies wore with the idle holders of idle capital, he would coin as littlo money as possible, wlii-ivas if his sympathies were with the struggling masses, he would coin as much as the law would permit. "This is the language of John G. Carli-le, not uttered when he was young, as might be charged, as has been against me. It was when he was 7 years older than 1 am now. 1 believe that he spoke the truth when he said that society was dt- viili-i! into those two classes upon any question involving money. I believe he was right when ho said that if a man's sympathies were with tho struggling masses he would favor a larger amount of money than he would if his sympathies were with the idle holders of idle money. My friends, tliu issue today is an issue between the idle holders of idle money and the Strug- glint; masses who produce the wealth and pay tho taxes of the country. And when this question is understood, when men Hud out about the money question, you will find that if there is a man in your community whoso interests or whose sympathies are with tho idle holders of idle money, ho will be in favor of a gold standard and not daring to say so he will talk about 'honest money' and a 'sound dollar.' • • But if his sympathies are with those vrho produce tho nation's wealth he will bo for the gold and silver coinage of the constitution, no matter how many times you rail him an anarchist. They toll us that these prominent financiers are going to leave tlie Democratic party because it ik-'Iares for the restoration of silver. We shall not go into court to secure an order to prevent thi-ir going. "Tlie Democratic party has been weighed down by these millstones long enough. It it, i-'lad to be rid of those who want to use the pnrty organization for private gain anil their country for public plunder. Now, my frii-nds, this is a question that you have n right to have an opinion upon, (Continued on Second Page.) Left for Hetlinandale.

Weimer, who takes a deep Olil ami Important Kelu-s Visited—Aiitiiimi- teil Homes mill Indian Forts—S t.,\vn the Oiliest Settlement in the Valley — Its Waterworks Described. In our issue of Fridav, July 31, we stated that "J. H. Redseckei, accompanied by Julius F. Sachse, Rev. P. C. Croll and Rev. W. E. Stabler, leit this morning for a drive through the Mtll- bach valley. Mr. Sacbse is a noted historian and editor, a member of the Penn'a historical society and the Philosophical society and treasurer of the Penn'a German society. Being interested in the local history of the state, he has embraced the opportunity, while attending the Chatitauqna with his family, of making this side trip for the purpose of collecting historical data." As the result of that trip we are en- al.led to lay before our readers the following interesting description from ad- vanee sheets of the "American Journal of Photography" for September, 1S06, of which Mr. Sachse is the editor, through the courtesy of Messrs. Thos. H. McCollin A Co., publishers, Philadelphia. The article is entitled: A PHOTOGRAPHIC RAMBLE. BY JULIUS FRIEDRICII SAC11SE. Encamped for a few weeks within the bounds of the Chautauqua grove of Pennsylvania, upon the shady hillside of Mt. the oldest public waterworks in the United States. The pure spring water i» brought down from the mountain aide by a series of pipes and supplied to the houses on the main street At regular distances there are placed pnblic fountains and water troughs, where man and beast may quench their thirst,—thus antedating our modem fountain societies be o v-er a century and a half. Many are the quaint and picturesqn views to be obtained along the old pro, vincial post road as it pas36s through this ers- i ancient country town. Turning south, ward, a little below the "square" another public fountain meets our view; to the right an ancient hostelrv, a '"wagon stand," long since relegated to domestic purposes; to the left several primitive log cabins—still happy homes—cool in summer and warm in winter. At the corner of an intersecting lane a modern frame house meets the eye. This house stands upon the site of the first Jewilh synagogue elected in Pennsylvania,—an Immble log sanctuary, with the Tabernacle of Jehovah, reared here in the wilderness as a shrine for the German- Hebrew fur traders ,who appear to have settled in the valley at a very early day. No trace of this community remains in the vicinity at the present "day, except he old cemetery upon a hill-top le« ban a mile from town, now neglected, overgrown with briars, with atonei di*> placed and either broken or carried off- in the archives of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania rnav be seen a Jewish jrayer-book printed by William Weyman at New York in 1762, such as were once used by this congregation. Walking tip the old post road beyond the square, so as to get a shot with our camera at the oldest house within the town, a surprise awaited us: In front of the wheelwright shop stood a covered wagon, bright in its garb of fresh paint and striping of gold. Upon either side of the door at the back were placed a plate-glass mirror iu a heavy gilt frame- full set of the BIcKiniey marcn mu<ac, which it is now practicing and will ssbort- y render in public. Picnic at Mader's Grove. Etnannel U. B. Sunday school is hold- ng an annual picnic today iu Jacob Jader's grove, in East Hanover township. Uusic is furnished by the Raukstown land. Gretna, thesparetimewhen not in forum or auditorium was utilized in searching out picturesque bits, food for tbe camera, aud recording them upon the sensitive dry plate. This pastime naturally carried the thoughts of the writer to the beautiful Lebanon Valley, which nestles between the South Mountain and the Kittatinny Range, and extends southward for some 60 miles. This valley, one of the richest and most fertile within the Keystone State, is known not only for its natural beauty and mineral wealth, but for its historical associations and the thrift of its inhabitants as well,—typical Pennsylvania Germans, many of "whom still till the paternal acres which were bought from the Indians by their ancestors when the stream of German Palatines came down the Susquehaima from the province of New York into Central Pennsylvania. The historical student, the artist, and the devotee of the black art (photography) will here within this beautiful valley" tind enough material to supply their cravings. The valley, watered by innumerable streams and rivulets, is dotted with ancient mill-seats, many of which are still moved by the. large, picturesque, unhoused wheel. Here are to be found almost every kind of ancient water-mill, the stone grist and chop-mill, with date stones perhaps showing some year of the fourth decant; of the last century; the frame saw-mill, with its pit-saw and crude log-carrier; the fulling mill, where the homespun woolens were stamped which clothed the sturdy pioneers as they sal- lieu forth to protect their homes against the French at:d Indians in the days of Braddork and Bouquet, and later furnished raiment for our ancesters who shivered upon the hillsides of Valley Forge and subsequently forced the proud Briton to lower his colors to their prowess At Yorktown. Here alsj may yet be found a "trip hammer forge," with breast wheel still in place. A little further on stands a boring mill, where the revolutionary rifle barrel was bored and finished. In many a vale within this valley may still be seen the original block house or lux cabin of the emigrant of old, with its hewn timbers, narrow sliding windows, and loopholes for defence against the murderous savage. It is not uncommon to find one still tile-covered, a precaution taken to make the roof safe against the fire arrows of the Indians. These tumble structures, now vine- clad with mossy roof, are still kept in repair by the different families as a monument to the early pioneers of the vallev. Here and there even a thatched stable is still to be seen, where the seeds, borne upon the winds, have grown and in course of time have transformed the straw thatch into a sod roof, impervious to storm, heat or cold. A few of the old Indian forts yet remain aa an interesting object lesson for present' generations. There are stone houses,, built as a refuge for the farmers and their families in case of a sudden attack bv either French or Indians. All banks of a stream, tine! in their humble architecture, and one oval, the other squaie. The legend on the sides told the passerby that Hair & Son were the photographers of Schaefferstown and vicinity, and if patrons wou'd not come to the studio m town/ the artist could come to them and take their portraits, right then aud there, at their own homes. Beside the wagon stood a camera, two chairs, and four pointed rods, to hold a portable top screen and background. Here wr.s certiinly a revelation. . While taking a survey o'f this portable outfit, we were joined by the senior proprietor, a typical Pennsylvania-German, to UM manor torn, and who, after asking OB if we could understand orspeak ''Dentsch," as he knew Httle\r no English, vouchsafed the information tnat the wagon was built and painteo. entirely by himself; further, that he^had been in the "photograph business ever since wet-plate timt s, but now confined h.iraself'mainly to ferrotypes, as they paid better and were less trouble than regular photo- grar'is. He, however, was ready lor all kinus of work within his line, and asking us into his house showed a number of prints, views such as farm buildings, etc., of various sizes, equal to the average work done in larger cities. During dull periods and rainy spells Photographer Bnir spends his time in mounting birdi and animals, his skill as a taxidermist. being second only to that of photography. One of the curious points about this traveling outfit was, why one of the mir- rorslshould be square and the other oval, or in fact why should there be any mirrors on the van at all, unless it be for ornament. This was explained: they were placed there for ths use of prospective patrous to show them the kind of picture ' they would take. It was further stated that when one wanted a square picture, they looked into the square mirror, or if an oval picture was wanted the counterpart was firit viewed in the oval mirror. Where sitters were undecided just how to be"took" they examined themselves in both mir- rots and then took their choice. It was not Professor Bair who gave UB . this information, but it was told the writer by a by-stander in all sincerity and good Pennsylvania Deutach. (To be CoDtlnned.) LOST OR FOUND.

James L. Francis, Alderman, Chicago, sajs: "I regard Dr. King's New Discovery aa an Ideal Panacea for Coughs, Colds and Lung Complaints, having used it in my family for the last five years, to the exclusion of physician's prescriptions or other preparations.' Rev. John Burgus, Keoknk, Iowa. writes- "I have been a minister of the [ now mossy and vine-clad, oft set .with a background of primitive forest trees, all present exquisite bits of picturesque composition, a delight to the true artist, no matter be he one of the brush, pencil or camera. To exploit the beauty, topography and I historical associations of this valley, a partv of four was formed, under the guidance of Mr. J. H. Redsecker, of Leb- uuon, a gentleman who for years wielded the editorial blue pencil in Central Pennsylvania and is well remembered as the author of "Across the Continent." His companions were the Rev. P. C. Croll, thy historian of Lebanon "Valley; Rev. W. E Stabler, a lecturer of note; and the writer, with his camera and outfit. The objective point of the trip was the peaceful and romantic vale within the valley proper known aa the Millbach (Mill Creek) valley. The stream from which it is named taking its source upon the mountain side, gathers up rill after rill, spring after spring, as it gushes from the rock, until it finally becomes a stream with power and fall enough to turn the many mills which stand upon its bank, until it finally flows into the historic Tulpehocken, a stream whose name and valley is well known in Pennsylvania- German history. The start was made from the town of Lebanon early hi the morning of the last day of July. The air was clear, cool and breezy. The route led from the county seat towards Schaefferstown, the oldest settlement within the valley. After a drive of eight miles through a beautiful farming country, our approach to the old settlement was indicated by severa^ [••••' cabins by the roadside, still covered with the red tiles burned by the settler and placed there almost a century • and three-quarters ago.
