since become reconciled to the presence of foreigners In his country In any case I anticipate no danger to foreign Interests on account of the revolution if the present trouble may be so called My Idea is that the Japanese Government while desiring to interfere as little as possible will if necessary exercise Its Influence and restore order with the present KlngAi the head of affairs Of course

leal eye It was evident that the dryrot of effeminate luxury had set In among the Inmates of the barrack rooms The younger men not only curled their hair and annolnted It liberally with oil which of

old chief at his farewell reviews In fact this enthu siasm has been so marked as to displease the permanent bureaucrats at the War Department who see in it the probable establishment of a dangerous precedent It has theref oi been conveyed to the Duke that although cheers from troops are not irregular when given to him as a member of the royal family yet in his military capacity they are against the regulations of the service It Is a pity that a reporter could not have been present when the Duke received that hint for the irascible old soldier is reported to have a fine command of strong and
