Boycott Japanese Goods.
Chi Foo, Nov. __.���Chinese In Man
churia are preparing lo make an attempt to boycott Japanese goods, the
movement originating mainly from the
ill-treatment, which the Chinese have
been subjected to by thfl Japanese and
Fifty Cents a Month
the latter's continued occupation of
Chinese property under the pretex of
its being a military, necessity. An*
oiher reason for the movement ls the
Inability of the Chinese merchants to
continue their former large business In
American and European goods on account of efforts of the Japanese to
place obstacles ln the way of everything but Japanese commerce in Man*
churia. A factor In the Impending
boycott Is the establishment In Manchuria of Japanese cigarettes, soap
and other factories which are mainly
engaged In Imitating European and
American products, notably cigarettes.
Missouri    Physician    Selects    Epitaph
Before Taking Hit Life.
Roehoportj Mo., Nov. u:..���After
writing his own obituary and d signaling the epitaph that should mark his
tombstone, Dr. W. C. Polllcs of this
c.ty, former secretary of state of Texas, and brother of Federal Judge John
F. Philips of Kansas City, committed
suicide by drinking poison. He was
found dead ln bed at a boarding bouse
here this morning. A loaded revolver
was lying on a table near the empty
vial which had Contained the poison,
indicating lhat had meant to make
death certain had the poison failed to
do its work.
Dr. Philips was S3 years old. Before
retiring and drinking the acid be had
ransacked his wardrobe and selected
what he afterward marked as "my
grave clothes."
A careUully prepared statement arranged for the disposition of bis financial affairs, every article he ihjs-
SOSSed  being disposed of in  detail.
The following sentence was selected by Dr. Philips for his epitaph:
"He wae secretary of state In Texas
under flovemor Pease."
On the leverse side of the slip of
paper containing his epitaph was written these words:
"Before you receive this I will be
numbered with the dead."
Active  Campaign   Opened  to   Counteract His Influence.
SL Petersburg, Nov. 23.���The hostile
feelings toward Count Wltte held by
almost all the members of the present
cabinet, combined with the distrust Inspired by the supposed Intentions underlying his recent return to Russia,
has again taken the form of an active
campaign  to counteract his Influence.
A former official of the ministry and
another who is at present secretary to
Premier Stolypln, will be sent down to
Berlin to start a press campaign
against Wltte for the purpose of undermining the prestige still enjoyed by
the count  in Europe and  America.
Further manifestation of personal
enmity is to be seen ln the report that
steps are being taken to cut off his
big stipend, in addition to his renin
neral salary of $6000 a year as member of the council of tbe empire, which
he has lieen receiving since his retirement from  the  post of minister of fl-
Englishman, if He Choose One Out of
Usual, Must Face Change.
London, Nov. 23.���The public will
be surprised to learn that the Englishman apparently has not absolute
freedom in the choice of the name of
his own child. An unfortunate father
registering his baby girl told the registrar the name was Coralle, and he
was astonished when he met a refusal
ou the ground that there Is uo such
name as Coralle. He was compelled
to choose another name.
This result of the registrar's official
knorance can be remedied by a small
fee, but the incident elicited the fact
that registrars have legally certain
discretionary powt^H, which Jare tui-
emhedied with any specific regulations.
lt happens occasionally that a freak
parent wants \a name suggestive of
blasphemy, and in this case the registrar is empowered to refuse. He also
may exercise discretion In the Interest
of a child when it is threatened with
some ridiculous apiiellalive. Thus a
dissatisfied father who wanted bis
child named "One Too Many" wns refused out of justice lo the Infant.
New York Life Agents May Form New

Railway Corporations Go
Into Court
Extended to interference With States
Rights in Common Carrier's
Washington, Nov. 2::.���-Fearing that
it may cost them millions of dollars
annually in damages awarded to Injured employees, leading railroads of the
United States will unite In an effort
to overthrow ln tbe courts, on the
ground of unconstitutionality, a* law
law passed by the last congress entitled An act relating to liability of
common carriers engaged In commerce
between the States and Territories and
toreigu nations, t the employees," but
commonly called 'lie "Employers' Lla-
blllty Act," although confined to railroads.
As a result of several conferences
between attorneys of eastern and western railroads, an agreement has been
reached lo carry to the United States
Supreme Court the first case brought
by an injured employee of some road
which Involves the disputed points in
the new law.
The plan of the railroad lawyers has
been made known to tlie government,
aud the attorney-geueral has announced that he Intends to ask leave to intervene ln the first case brought under
the law, to test the constitutionality,
validity and internre jtion of the act.
The railroads declare that the act Ib
unconstltuntional on the single proposition that congress has undertaken
therin to invade the rights of the
States. The principal fact on which
roads wilt rely to upset the new law
is di scribed by their attorneys as follows.
'Hy the use of the words 'cars, en-
g lies, appliances, machinery, track,
roadbed, ways of works,' congress extended the provisions of the law over
all instrumentalities of companies conducting commerce. The general aaid
sweeping terms 'every common carrier," 'any of Its agents,' 'any of its officers, agents or employes,' 'all Instrumentalities,' establish the proposition
that there shall he no states. Debates
in congress on this act also show conclusively that such was the object
soueht to be accomplished. Yet the
judicial department has been declaring
for a hundred years that the power to
regulate commerce wholly within a
state was a power which the states
never surrendered to the federal government, aud. as congress well knew,
much of the commerce of common carriers fs carried on wholly within the
Individual states."
Hearst Files Declaration Showing Over
Quarter   of   a    Million    Dollars���
Comparison With Hughes.
New York, Nov. 2;i.���In a statement
of his campaign expenses submitted
to the secretary of state at Albany today Wllitam H. Hearst declared be had
spent $250,370.22, or more than 30
cents for every vote he recived.
Governor-elect Hughes pleaded guilty
to spending on his election $61,856, or
someihing like S cents for every 100
voles be received.
Not since the law requiring candidates for public office to file a list of
their expenses went Into effect a number of years ago has any one seeking the favor of the voters admitted
spending one-tenth the Bum for election purposes avowed by Mr. Hearst.
The sum in magnitude is far and
away greater than any other recorded
on the hooka of the state for that particular purpose.
Of tlie amount expended by Mr.
Hearst as repotted to the secretary
of state, he gave to John O. Follans
bea, treasurer of the Independence
league, $1.8\870.22, and to William .1.
Connors, chairman of the Democratic
state committee, $57,000. The balance, $500, he spent for travelling expenses. ���
As large as the total mny appear
to be for one man to spend fn an at-
tempt to gain an office which pays a
salary of $10,000 a year, tho sum does
not begin to compare with the total
amount Hearst spent fn his fight to
be governor of New York. In the first
place, the total does not In any way
Include the preliminary fight he made
to get the nomination aB the law does
not require that such expenditures be
Immediately after ho was decla.-.srt
defeated for mayor last fall he began,
through hla managers, the organization of the Independence laegue. An
organisation was formed In every
county of the ��tate, and ln every assembly district of Greater New Yor*
In the latter city he has the old municipal ownership league as a nucleus,
but the association had to be morgan
lzed altogether. The establishment of
the league must have cost him thousands of dollars. He had a great staff
of paid agents out organizing varlouii
branches of the league, and their expenses must have been enormous an.l
the vaBt bulk was paid by Mr. Hearst
Another great source of expennc was
involved In obtaining the neceitarv
signatures for nominations for JO'er-
nor and lieutenant governor on Hi - Independence league state ticket. Such
a petition with the sworn signatured of
the necesary number of voters had to
be got In every one of the 61 counties
of the Btate.
Nor does Mr. Hearst's statement include the enormous cost of distributing, free of charge, copies of the
Hearst newspapers, of which millions
were given away during the campaign.
Then, too, there were the salaries of
many paid employees who are on the
regular payrolls of the American and
Evening Journal all the year around.
All of this, however, does not in any
way imply that Mr. Hearst did not
make a true and correct return to the
secretary of Btate of all that was required of him by law, a statement) In
detail of the expenses of the actual
campaign, but It goes to show what
an enormous sum It must have cost
him, first and last, to make the run
for governor.
Nanaimo  Surveyor   Does  Not  Believe
Terminus Will Be at Kaien Island.
Nanaimo, Nov. 23.���After baffling
southeast gales and furious seas since
October 6, the staunch little gasoline
launch, the Elsie, with H. K. Church
as Its sole occupant, arrived in port
yesterday from Seal harbor, Kaien
Ever since the Kaien Island boom
started Mr. Church has had the
-"Notthern bug" in his ear, and while
there thoroughly familiarized himself
with the prospects in store for the
much-talked of G. T. P. terminal on
Kaien island. Mr. Church does not
enthuse much over the situation on
the island. At present, he says, there
are only a few buildings or bunk-
hou.es there, and the population consists mainly of surveyors. These survey parties invariably consist of two
white men, the remainder being made
up of Japs or Chinamen. There is absolutely nothing at Kaien island now
to justify a big rush of men. Nor
does he think there will be anything,
iin foot, In Mr. Church's estimation he
d eB not think that Kaien island will
ever be the terminal of the new trans-
com iriiit -I railway. It looks to him
like a I Iuii on the part of the railway
ptople to scare off the land owners at
Port Simpson, where he thinks the real
terminal will eventually be situated,
that Is, if it ls to be ln the northern
parts at all.
To begin with, there is not more
than 500 acres of good available land
for a townsite, which would not hold
out much of a prospect for a future
city. Then tlie harbor at Kaien island,
which would be the prime necessity
for such a terminal, is far from being
a good one, not anywhere near what
the Port Simpson harbor is. It is
rocky, and ten times more dangerous.
he says, than the entrance to the Vancouver harbor.
Taking It all through, its situation,
Its harbor, Its townsite, and the present lack of development work, the general opinions that Kafen Island will be
the terminal point of the new road are
not justified.
The Queen of Spain.
Madrid, Nov .2,1.���Semi-offlcal notice
hus been given that in all public announcements respecting tbe Queen of
Spain, Her Majesty shall In future be
known as Queen Victoria Eugenie, and
not Queen Victoria. This Is in compliment to the Empress Eugenie, after
whom the queen wob named and who
is expected to bequeath the bulk of her
vast fortune to Her Maljesty of Spain.
Absolutely Untrue.
New York. Nov. 23.���Mayor Schmltz
of San Francisco, who arrived here today on the steamer Patricia, said there
was absolutely no truth In the charges
made imntnst him and that he would
sin to Sim Francisco and give the court
lhe fullest Inquiry. No attempt was
made to arrest. Mayor Schmltz when
ho came ashore from the Bteamer.

Chicago, Nov. 23.���Ferdinand L, Bar-
net t, negro assistant states attorney,
who, according to police returns, was
elected judge of the new municipal
court of Chicago on November 6th,
yesterday was counted out by the canvassing board. Tho police returns
gave Baruett a pluralty of .99, but the
official count of the 35 wards of the
city which was completed yesterday
shows that Lebanly was elected by a
pluralty of 30-1. Harnett was the only
Republican defeated tor a city office at
the elections.
Paris Paper lays It Will Bt With tht
United States.
Paris, Nov. 23.���Although the Paris
newspapers, even those that are unwilling to recognize benlfieence toward the world in general In the
Anglo-French alliance, speak in a
friendly manner toward America.
There are some journals that believe
Japan and America u.e bound to fight
soon, and they appear eager to keep
the subject before their readers.
Today the Echo de Paris says that
Japan's next war will be with the
United States, and while the governments desire peace, It Is Impossible
to eradicate America's aversion to the
yellow race, which, the Echo says, is
both instinctive and rational. To show
Japan's feelings, and with the possible
implication that war is not so far off
ub some think, the Echo digs up a
Japanese review, which says that the
Panama canal will quadruple the danger to Japan.
The Echo says that fate has decreed
a war, and that the geographical positions of the two countries and thetr
commercial rivalry can only result ln
a clash of arms.
Tit for Tat.
Bucherast, Roumania, Nov. 23.���As a
reprisal against the Bulgarian government's decision adopted some time ago,
not to admit Jews Into Bulgaria no
matter how they came, Roumania has

Bulgarians from entering Roumania.
This prohibition is extended even to
Jews who are ln possession ot "passports."

While no formal tender, of the leadership has been made to Mr. Mclnnes

To Find Successor to Sir
Mortimer Durand
Position Affords Noblest Opportunity   Ever Offered  to
Any   Man.
London, Nov. 23.���The Dally Telegraph this morning devotes a two-column leader to the Importance of properly filling the diplomatic vacancy in
Washington and says the government
never bad a more important and rarely bas a more difficult task than finding a successor to Sir Mortimer Durand. What Is wanted, what ln the
strictest sense Is necessary, ls an unconventional ambassador. The time
has come for a notable break with all
formal traditions, and Sir Edward
Grey's choice ought to be "as unfettered as the Initiative of the American
presidents, ln going outside the ranks
of professional diplomacy to send us
tbat brilliant line of representatives
admirably continued In Whitelaw Reid,
who has been one or the moat per-
persuasive and Influential figures of
our own social lite.'
Continuing, the paper says the new
British ambassador at Washington
will have to face a novel and stimulating situation, aa Germany's representative there, Baron Speck von
Sternberg, la "one of (he mott able
and most popular figures ln the diplomatic Bervice of any country."
While France never haa been better
represented in Washington than now,
her diplomatic corps possessing "no
more brilliant and engaging figure
than M. Jussrand," the paper points
out that both these diplomats Bhare
prospects for a strenuous life.
Sketching a "picture ot the unattainable, the Telegraph says: "The Ideal
should combine John Morley's literary
reputation, Alfred Lyttleton's athletic
prowess and Lord Beresford's popular
temperament. Whoever he may be,"
the paper Bays in conclusion, "he will
have to be one of the noblest opportunities ever offered to a man."
To Settle Coal Strike.
Lethbrldge, Nov. 23.���Mackenzie
King arrived here from Ottawa yesterday morning and proceeded to Investigate tbe labor conditions. He has already conferred with the striking miners. Mr. King announced that a representative of the miners' union had
consented to accept his mediations
and the company has llgewtse agreed.
It is therefore probable that the prospects are bright for a settlement of
the long-standing coal strike. It Is
most earnestly hoped that the minister's efforts will be successful, but it
is too early to make a prediction.
