Britain has stuck up the "Keep off the Grass" sign on
the Chinese boulevards and the talk of Japan starting a
war with China to secure indemnity for subjects killed in
the recent troubles has died out with a squawk.
Following the news that a couple of Japanese had lost
their lives in the recent rebellion in Yuan Shi Kai's restless republic, came reports of great "popular outbursts of
indignation" at Tokio, "demands on the Japanese ministry
for immediate declaration of war with China" and a whole
lot of other similar tomfoolery. The mikado's government
dispatched a pre-emptory note to Pekin, which amounted
practically to an ultimatum and hostilities were expected
.to break out almost any day.
Meanwhile there were other nations which had lost
subjects at the hands of the Chinese rebels, but they were
content to follow the usual diplomatic course to secure
The Japanese government evidently felt sure it could
whip China in the event of war breaking out and it also
desired a chance to annex some further slices of the valuable territory belonging to the young republic. But Japan
had noticed that her war talk wasn't going down very well
���with the powers, so she decided to adopt the cautious
course and find out how she stood. Accordingly she approached Great Britain and she wasn't long in discovering
that her bluff was called. 'Nothing doing in the war feature," remarked John Bull.
And so the Japanese claims for indemnity will follow
the diplomatic course.
Whatever may be Japan's secret program with regard to the Pacific coast of North America, there is not
the shadow of a doubt that her policy calls for more territory in Asia and it may be expected that the recent incident with regard to her claims in China will be re-enacted
many times in the years to come if the impertinent empire
of Nippon is to be kept where it belongs.

country, and who recently arrived at
Shushanna. Armstrong Is a brother

and joint author with Rex Ileach of

In a letter to D. B. Dugdale. the
local baseball magnn'e. Armstrona
points out that the Shushanna gold
field does not wear n roseate hue. except only at long distances away from
the scene of the discovery. He describes the trail as one nf the toughest in Alaska, in the following letter,

Fusier drove 'he team into Bradford,
and on Tuesday attempted tn sell them

entire out'it for $_00. The man who
was approached was evidently suspicious, but he paid down $25 and

was from Newmarket, where he appeared on Wednesday and found a

of the horses refused to part with
them, as he realized the excellent bar-

given to a deaf and dumb man, who
arrived ln the city a short time ago.
Three days he spent In and aut of

A man Just out of prison yesterday was sent out to a farm last evening, and will be given a good position.
The farmer wrote to the secretary that
he wss badly in need of assistance,
and that he could accommodate one
or two men if he had them.
Another case of a man in 111 health
was brought to the attention of the
bureau. He wished to return to his
home in England, and getting into
touch with government officials, the
secretary of the bureau was able to
arrange for his deportation.
London, Sept. 18.��� Heinrich Kremer-
skothen, 20, a clerk, has been sentenced at the Old Uulley for sending
letters to Lord Rothschild demanding
money with menaces. The charge
was heard by Sir Forrest Fulton. The
defendant pleaded guilty, and a sentence of IS months' hard labor was
passed, with a recommendation for
subsequent deportation.
Travers Humphreys suld that the
defendant professed to be acting on
behalf of a committee and threatened
death not only to U>rd Rothschild, but
to Miss Alice Rothschild, his grandchild, lf efforts were made to discover
the Identity of tlie committee. He
suggested a reply through a newspaper under tbe initials "H. H." meaning "Black Hand,' though it was not
supposed that the defendant was connected with that organization.
Travers Humphreys described how
the man was trapped by u police device at a West End restaurant. He
intimated that Lord Rothschild did
not wish to press the charge unduly.
Mr. Roome, on behalf of the defend
ant. expressed his sincere regret, and I
said    that   Kremerskotheu's  original I
id-ta was taken from a book, and he
intended, after writing the first letter j
to communicate with Lard Rothschild
and  tell  hlm  how   he  happened    to
overhear the plot which led to Its being     sent.     When,    however.    Lord
Rothschild   answered  the   letter,   the
temptation to change his original plan
overcame him, and he sent the succeeding communication, which led to
hla arrest.
Mr. Roome added that, when 5 year?
old, the defendant fractured his skull.
and It would seem that his mind
might not be quite normal.
The defendant. In broken English.
explained that the injury' to his skull
cauaed headaches, aggravated by the
fact that English beds are harder than
German beds, which prevented Mm
from sleeping. Sentence was passed
as stated.

Spokane, Sept. 18.���While attorneys
on both sides of the case yeBterday
agreed that Mrs. Lydia Murrey should
go under the surgeon's knife at the
hospital to determine If Dr. T. E. Hox-
sey and otter surgeons had removed
her appendix, Mrs. Murray failed to
give her consent, and Judge J. Stanley Webster held that the court could
not demand that the operation be performed.
The question of placing Mrs. Murray under the surgeon's nlte was a
feature of the Dr. T. E. Hoxsey cose
against Mrs. Murray. Mrs. Murray
charges that the physicians were expected to remove her appendix, but
that-,they went further and removed
other organs, for which she asks $5,000
damages. Dr. IIoxBey, who has sued
for $:!S5 fnr the operation, has placed
several physicians on the stand to
testify that the operation was not
performed to remove the appendix.
The physicians said that both Mr
and Mrs. Murray agreed to the operation declared necessary by the surgeons.
