Inspector    Spencer Was   His
Asiatic Expert Talks  ot   Relative
Merits of Chinese and Japanese
as Citizens,
Arthur S. Spencer, know in government circles in San Francisco
as "Aguinaldo" Spencer, is in the
city to make a census of the local
Chinese population. Me. Spencer's
nickname is not an inappropriate
one, for he bears a striking resemblance to the published pro-
trates of the rebel leader in the
Philippines. Moreover, Mr. Spencer was an intimate friend and classmate of Aguinaldo in Victoria college, Hong Kong, during a six
years' academic course.
"Aguinaldo," said Mr. Spencer
yesterday, "was, while in school,
a sociable fellow, but of a vindictive nature. Ambition was his
most striking characteristic. He
was the leader of every class in
which heappeared,-aiidLjshould he
lose his place in front would work
for days to regain it. He is a true
Asiatic, cunning and quick to^ re-
te.it an affront.
Ambition Huiued Rebel CUlel
"When he.left college he went
home to be a leader among the
Filipinos. He wanted to be first
in everything, and in consequence
has become a dictator over the people he would free. His ambition
has been his ruin. He built his
castles toliigh, with the result that
he will be buried under them when
they fall If he had waited until
the United States had settled the
disturbance in his country after the
fall ol Manila he would now have
been governor general of the islands. From what I learned of him
during the six years 1 knew him,
I am led to believe that unless he is
captured and either deported or imprisoned he will make a great deal
of trouble for the United States
Mr. Spencer was born in Hong
Kong harbor on board an English
vessel. His father was an American and his mother, a Spanish
woman, married his father in the
East Indies. He has traveled widely in the orient, and is competent to
speak on oriental affairs. He
speaks English, Chinese, Spanish
and Portuguese, having obtained
his knowledge of the languages in
Hong Kong. He is officially connected with the customs house in
San Francisco as Chinese interpreter and inspector of Asiatic immigration.
Wn the JapaueaelMi'iiare.
Speaking of the relative value of
the Chinese and Japanese as residents of this country, Mr. Spencer
said: "The Chinaman is no longer a menace to this country, but
his place as a menace has been
taken by the little brown men of
japan. The Chinaman is a sober,
hard working man, (Who will not
work for wages too low. As cook
he wants $40 a month, and can not
be hired for much less. The Jap
will accept $20 or even less lor his
work. Chinese laborers are paid
$1,40 a day, jap only $1,10. The
same relative values extend through
all trades and occupations.
"Japanese question is to become
a] paramont issue in America.
Nationally the Japanese are strong,
their army and navy, under the
efficient instructions of Americans
and Englishmen, form a power not
to be dispised. The Japs consider
themselves as civilized as any na.
tion on earth, and are strong in
that belief. They are proud and firm
in their bearing toward other nations, and have really become one
ofthe great world powers. Therefore they will resent any attempt to
shut them from this or any other
country, and the passage ot a Japanese exclusion act by the United
States might be followed by a hard
war against   this country.
Mr. Spencer has completed the
enumeration of the Chinese In Spo-
kane, finding about 500, and wil
soon go to Walla Walla and through
the Palouse. The inspection is
made under a provision of the
Geary exclusion act for an annual
enumeration of Chinese. The inspection shows a yearly decrease
in the Chinese population of the
United States of about 500, owing
to removals to China and death.
Mr, Spencer expresses no doubt
of the repassage of the exclusion
act when it expires, in  1902.

A private telegram received in
Chicago announces lhe death in
Brooklyn, N. V., of William West-
lake, one of the founders of the
Adams & Westlake company,
widely known as an inventor. Mr.
Westlake held over 300 personal
patents, among the best known being the open top hand lantern,
which made possible the system, of
lantern signaling used by railroads.
Mr. Westlake was born in Cornwall, England, 111 1831, and came
to the United States 1844. In 1857
he became chief tinsmith of the old
Milwaukee & La Crosse railroad.
In 1861 he formed a business partnership with Master Mechanic Rice
of the road for the manufacture of
railway supplies. The firm was
burned  out in  the    great  lire   ot
Direct Wire Tu <{ue_»uel
The work of stringing the new-
telegraph wire from Quesnel to
Ashcroft was completed yesterday
and connection}made with the local
office. This wire is strung on newly
set poles entirely independent of
the old line, and yet no connections
have been made with the offices be
tween Quesnel and here.
Jim Trodden has been in charge
of this work and, with only a small
gang of men, has strung from nine
to ten miles a day. With the tew
men worked this would have
baen impossible only but for the
assistance of a very ordinary look-
cayuse which Jim pressed into service as head packer.
It is said of Lord Kitchener as
an example, of his resourcefulness
that when his telegraph contingent
could not proceed with the work of
stringing • wire because they had
no appliances he conceived the idea
of putting a donkeys hind leg
through a bundle of wire and then
slipped the wire over his back, and
there it hung and was reeled off as
the donkey stumpled along. Jim
just double discounted that idea by
making a reel and placing it on the
huricane deck of the before mentioned cayuse and the wire reeled
off as beautifully as possible. Yesterday George Bailey took a snap
shot of the invention which
will likely be preserved in the ar-
chieves at Ottawa as an example
of the ingenuity of the western men.

between Danny Dougherty, Terry
McGovern's boxing partner, and
Morris Rausch. who were to go
six rounds to a decision. Harry
Harris and Clarence Forbes were
also to have appeared in a six
round go. George Siler was to

Three women held up by highwaymen, one of whom is dying from
injuries received; a girl attacked by
an acid thrower and another girl
assaulted is the record of crime in
Kansas City for the past few day?.
A white man enticed Ethel Campell,
the 8 year old daughter of a former
deputy marshal, from her home in
the east bottoms and before making his escape nearly choked her
to death 10 prevent an outcry being
made. The girl, half unconscious'
was found by a fisherman in a desolate place near the river and taken
to the city physician's office. There
she recovered sufficiently to give a
description of her assailant. A
volunteer posse searched the bottoms thoioughly all afternoon, determined to lynch the man if he
could be found. At nightfall he
had not been captured. The girl
will recover.
In hdgerton, a suburb of Kansas
City, Kansas, a woman clad in
black threw carbolic acid in 14
year old Eleanor Bare's face,
severely burning her cheeks and
forehead. No cause for the assault
is apparent and no clue to the
woman has been found.
Within a few days three have

"You can never solve the social
problem by strikes; that is my
opinion after 20 years experience in
the movement," said Peter Curran,
chairman of the General Federation
of Trades Unions of Great Britain,
in speaking to the workingmen of
Chicago today at a meeting held
under the auspices of the Building
Trades council.
Mr, Curran came to this country
as the fraternal delegate from the
British Trades Union congress
to the American Federation of Labor convention, and represents
about 2,000,000 organized workers in the United Kingdom. He
is president and organizer of the
Gas workers' and General Laborers'
union, with offices in London.
Mr. Curran said: "After spending more money in England during
the last 25 years on the industrial
battlefield than would keep 700 or
1000 legislators for our interest in
the house of parliament, we have
come to the conclusion that we
must have something to say about
the making of laws under which we
have to work, and we must get
away from|the old orthodox political parties if we nope to secure
what we'seek.
"The only possibility of our securing labor'legislation is'by sending our own men jto* parliament
not as master but fas servants.
You never can solve the social
evils of which you complain by muscular force. Vou must do it by
tlons, except they would be their
own masters and make such regulations concerning their work aa
seemed to them would be for their
best interests. 1 think that whoa
such conditions arrive, that tha
people of a nation engaged in
the agricultural pursuits would
not, unless they preferred, live ia
rural isolation. They would be
housed in cities and would go to
their work on rapid transits, which
would be cheaper (cost less labor)
than keeping up the millions of
miles of road and hauling tho pro*
ducts in wagons to points of demand, as is now done. No, social*
ism does not infer the renting
of land for tithing or money rant.
That would be a crude way, and
when people understand it bettor
they will not apply crude and primitive methods, such as now in vogue.
The land will be used in tha same
way that railroads would be if ths
public owned   and  operated  thorn.

A determined effort will be made
by President and Secretary Hay,
to induce the powers to consent to
the arbitration of the indemnity
question by a court to be appointed
in confromity with the provisions of
Tke Hague treaty.
Article 6 of the agreement, sign-
td by^the foreign ministers in Pekin, requires the payment by China
of "equitable indemnities" of a very
sweeping character. m'Thn indemnity to be paid to the governments
is% the nature of restitution of the
expenses incurred in dispatching
and maintaining troops in China,
and it is feared may be made to in
elude sums to be paid to the heirs
of th.ise killed in action,'or to those
who received'^wounds during the
engagements incident to the cap-
ture;of Pekin.
The total losses of the allied
forces'defending the legations were
67 killed and 120 wounded, and
many Chinese, in the employ ol
missionaries jind the legations lost
their lives. An/idea of the indemnity to be demanded for thc expenses of the several military expeditions mav be obtained from this
table, showing'the'strength of the
allies:' Russia 48,500 men,'brought
from Siberia; Japan, 22,573 men,
transported from Japan; Germany
15,600 men and 44 guns, all but a

men, sent to the north from Cochin
China; Italy iooo . men, transported from Italy; Austria, 294 men,
landed from her warships.
The societ.esjnamed in the note
of tke powers are the religious
bodies which maintain missionaries

sums of indemnity for the heirs ot

Mrs. Lulu C. Jenkins, now of

three years ago. The money will
be paid over by the eight bondsmen of former Sheriff Henry Bushing and is the result of a privae

months after the murder. This

William Jenkins was one of the

They have, it seems, a queer law in
Kansas  that   requires  the  governor's signature to   a  death   warrant
Mrs.   Jenkins!.   . . ...
* i before it  can be carried into execus
tion. No governor for several years
has been willing to sign a death
warrant, and in consequence death
sentences have not been carried
out. Thr present governor, Stanley, has no prejudice against capital
punishment, but before signing
forty death warrants he desires to
know if capital punishment is desirable, he would inforce it; if not
he would have it abolished.
There are five states io which a
death penalty has been abolished.
These are Maine, Rhode Island,
Michigan, Wisconsin and Colorado.
The governors of these states
have been requested to give the
governor of Kansas the benefit ol
there experience. Not one of the
governors are inclined to the belief
that the abolition of the death penalty either increase the number of
capital offenses or is an incentive to
lynch law. The governor of Colorado, who has recently had to deal
with an aggravated case of mob
law, does not believe that thc abolition of the death penalty has a tendency in that direction.
There does not seem to be much
to be said in favor of the queer
Kansas law. A man under sentence
of death m iy be held to have some
rights, one of which is that he shall
not be subjected to punishment in
excess of what the law provides.
If death is the penalty for murder,
enforcement ofthe sentence during
a long period of years might be considered a kind of mental torture-—

A telephone message from What
Cheer, declares that there is not a
word of truth in tive story that 411
people were drowned there while
skating. In conversation with a
lady operator in charge of the exchange at that point, she stated
that the story was a joke by some
train men and that they first told
that the accident had occurred at
Pekay, a little town near What
Cheer. The ridiculousness of the
story, she declared, is shown from
the tact that their is not a pond
large enough in the town to hold
ten people, let alone 49. The story
is the outgrowth of the Pekay
Itlrxlran Bank Failure
The failure of the well known Bank
of Francisco Marrincz, Negrite &
Sons of Guadalajara, has created a
sensation in Mexico where it has
for many years been identified with
its business.
anything.    The mechanic invention
was not for his benefit.
Some time ago I heard a man
say tnat it was impossible for good
mechanics to get employment, and
that, if his judgment, the government ought to furnish work for the
people. A few minutes after I
heard another man say that he was
selling a patent for cutting out
clothes, that one of the machines
could do the work of twenty tailors,
and that only the week before he
had sold two to a great house in
New York, and that over forty cutters had been discharged.
On every side men are being
discharged and machines are being
invented to take their places. When
a great iactory shuts down the
workers who inhabited it and gave
it life as thoughts to the brain,
go away, it stands there like an
empty skull. A few workmen, by
the force of habit, gather about the
closed doors and broken w! ' .*s
and talk about distress, the price
of food and the coming winter.
They are convinced that 'the'
haven't their j share [of what ' ey
created. They feel certain that ..ie
machines on the inside were uol
their friends. The look at the mansion of the employer—but have
nothing themselves. The employer
seems to have enough. Even when
employers fail, when they become
bankrupt, they are far better off
than their laborers ever were.
There worst is the toilers best.
The capitalist comes forward with
his specific. He tells the working-
men they must be economical, and
yet, under the present system, economy would lessen wages.
Under the great law of supply
and demand, every saving, frugal,
s If denying workman is uncon-
sciousnly doing what little he can
to reduce the compensation of himself and his [ fellows. The slaves
who did not wish to run away helped to fasten the chains on'those who
are  be

children?    Will i-Xtravagance   keJ|>
pace   with   ingenuity?    Will     tho
workman  become   intelligent   and
strong enough to become the owners of machines?   Will these gaints,
these titans,   shorten   or   lengthen
the   hours   of   labor?    Will    they
give leisure to the   industrious,   or
will   they make   the rich   richer or
the poor poorer?    Is man   involved
in the "general scheme" of things?
Is their no pity, no mercy? Can man
become intelligent   enough   to   be
generous, to be just,   or   does  the
same law or fact   control    him   as
controls the   animal   or   vegetable
world?   The great .oak   steals  the
sunlight   from   the   smaller   trees.
The    strong   animal   devours   the
weak—everything at the  mercy   of
the beak, and claw, and   hoof,   and
tooth—of   hand,   and   club,    and
brain    and   greed—inequality,   injustice everywhere.    The poor horse
standing in the street with his dray,
overwork, overwhipped and   unfed,
when he  sees horses   groomed    to
mirror, glistening with   gold   and
silver, scorning with proud feet  the
very earth,   probably   indulges   in
the usual    social   reflections;    and
this same horse, worn and old,  deserted by his  master,   turned   into
the dusty road, leans   his head   on
the topmost rail, looks  at  donkeys
in the field of clover and   feels   like
a nihilist.
In tne day of cannibalism the
strong devoured the weak—actually ate their flesh. In spite of all
laws that man has made, in spite
of all advances in science, the
strong, the heartless, still live on
ihe weak, the unfortunate, the foolish. True, they do not drink their
blood or eat their flesh, but they
live on their self-denial, their
weariness and want. The poor
man who defends himself by toil,
who labors for fiis wife and children
through all his anxious, barren,
wasted life—who goes to the grave
without ever having a luxury—has
been tht food for others. He has
bsen devoured by his fellow men.
The poor women, living in the bare
and lonely room, cheerless and
tireless, night and day, to keep
starvation from her child is
slowly being eaten by her fellow-
men.    When I take into  consider-
did.    Lo, the  saving  mecha' ;  is ,

of bread? . ls it his   fate   to   work
one   day   thatjr;he    may  get   food
enough#to be able to[work another?
Is that to"be   his  only   hope—thn.
and death?
Capital has also claimed and  still,
w.       ing to be tilled, when one man   can
raise food lor hundreds, yet millions
are 0,1 the edge  of famine.      Who
c ,n comprehend the stupidity at the
bi Uom of this truth:
1 ihe failures, the anxieties, the tears,
j the withered hopes, the bitter realities, the hunger, the crime, the hu-
j miliation and the shame—I am al-
[mos. forced to say that cannibalism,
J after a'l, is the most merciful form
I in which man -an exist.
In a world   filled   with   millions,

claims the right to combine,
ufacturers meet and determine

when they combine, gather in the
street. All the organized forces
of society are against them. Capital has the   army   and   01vy,    tin.
There is to be no  change?

and competition, capital and legifc-

it that the rich control the departments of the government.-' In this
country the political pow 1 is equal

Why should the rich control? Why
should not the poor combine for

that the wishes of the citv might be

rushes public opinion on his independent hobby horse to consult Lawyer lt.
B Kerr, ot Phoenix, in tbis matter of
importing Chinese cooks.     Mr. Kerr
is well posted on the subject.
It might interest Mr. Parker and
others like him, who prefer a mystery
in their kitchen, to learn that a yellow
cook was recently fired from a government vessel at Vancouver and no other
it to be engaged because it was learned
that this class of cooks preferred to
mix their dough hy spraying it with
water taken up in their mouths, as
clothes are sprinkled in Chinese laundries, But perhaps Mr. Parker has

Work, not words, is what is needed
