VON BUELOW ANGRY
Socialist Leader Enrages Ger
FOR PARTIALITY TO RUSSIA
Accuses Him of Using German Troops
to Drive 'Fugitives Back to Rus
sia and Allowing German
Ships to Aid Fleet.
BERLIN. March 16. Chancellor von
Buelow and Herr Bebel. the Socialist lead
ers, engaged in a bitter discussion In the
Reichstag today over Germany's Russian
policy. The Chancellor's usual composure
and good humor in debate were disturbed
by the almost savage criticism of the
Socialist chief, "who said that Germany's
"creeping before Russian had humiliated
her In the eyest of the -world and had
brought her to shame."
He held Von Buelow responsible for
Prussia's engaging In the nasty -work of
catching fugitives from Russian military
service and turning them over to agents
of the autocrats, "for forcing men and
women, whose only offense was love of
liberty, to leave Prussian territory at the
Instance of Russian spies."
German Ships AJd Russia.
Herr Behel laughed scornfully at the
Chancellor's assertion that Socialists want
war -with Russia. He had heard such
reproaches a dozen times. "Wore an in
surrection to break out In Russian Po
land, "Von Buelow would doubtless 6end
a. note to St. Petersburg offering German
troops to help In suppressing it. The So
cialist chief-was twice called to order by
the President of the House.
Herr Bebel, In another part of his long
speech, read a letter of Prince Bismarck
to his wife. In which he spoke of the
"charlatanry and pomposity of diplo
macy." Herr Bebel said It was all very well for
the Chancellor to say that the sale of
merchant ships to belligerents was no
breach of international law, but what of
the ten German ships among the 45 trans
ports with the squadron commanded by
Admiral Rojestvensky? They had not
been bought by Russia: their crews were
In a certain sense prisoners of the Rus
sian squadron. He had private letters
showing that the crews did not know the
destination of the ships before they were
at sea. Many men in the crew served
against their wilL Could any one imag
ine that the Hamburg-American Company
did not view the government's wishes be
fore entering such engagements?
"Is participation In the war by German
ships with German crews and the German
flag not in violation of neutrality?" asked
Chancellor von Buelow. after talking
tnlldly regarding Alsace-Lorraine and af
fairs of Prussian Poland, exclaimed:
Von Buelow Grows Angry.
"Ach! Love, heaven, this Bismarck let
ter. I know it well. Bismarck was busy
with diplomacy at the time he wrote It.
Yes, it belongs to those many beautiful
letters he wrote. If he bad not been a
great statesman, what a great author he
would have been. Meln Gott! I have been
in diplomacy 30 years, and I am unbiased
enough to know that what Bismarck said
was quite true."
Von Buelow affirmed that therexhad
been no case of extradition of a, Russian
subject not covered by the extradition
treaties. Turning to the government mer
chant shlpB in the Russian sen-ice, the
"According to the emphatic assurances
of the Hamburg-American Company, the
German transport ships must not accom
pany the Russian squadron. They may
only supply coal in certain neutral har
bors. In going to these neutral harbors
German ships may not sail In company
with Russian warships and must follow
"The Imperial government knows noth
ing of any illegal pressure upon the crews
of the German vessels In Madagascar.
"When the Russian Admiral, In the inter
est of secrecy, takes measures to limit
the freedom of movement of German sail
ors. In view of the Russian circumstances,
one can scarcely object. Should the Hamburg-American
Companay treat the crews
differently from the conditions of the con
tract under the German law, the govern
ment would hold the company unsparingly
responsible. There lies not the slightest
proof before us that the company has done
anything Inconsistent with its obliga
tions." The Chancellor reaffirmed that the So
, rlalist party was seeking to embroil Ger
many and Russia, as it had done every
thing' possible to embroil Great Britain
and Russia by poisoning public opinion
regarding the North Sea incident.
Von Buelow spoke at some length on
the danger of the Socialists undermining
Institutions, and said he was convinced
that the civilized world some day would
unite In a destructive war against Social
Ism. "It is a6 false for the Radicals and part
of the Liberals to look at Russian inter
nal affairs through the spectacles of lib
eralism," said the Chancellor toward the
end .of his speech, "as. it was in the time
of the Holy Alliance to consider them
from the standpoint and principle of
legitimacy. When Herr Bebel says that'
we would help ihe Russian government
in suppressing internal disorders, I say
that it Is unthinkable that we should mix
in Russia's affairs and expend German
blood with- futility. "Whether we under
stand the internal situation of Russia or
whether Russia should develop politically
in this or that way cannot come Into our
jKHcy, which must care only for the
security and welfare of our land."
WILL FORTIFY HER FRONTIER
Italy Proposes to Be Ready for War
ROME. March 16. In view of the inter
national situation which has prevailed
since Italy entered the triple alliance in
15S2. she lias entirely neglected her forti
fications on the eastern frontier, centering
all her efforts on fortifying the western
frbntier, as Italy's relations with France
were then so strained that under Premier
c'rlspl a conflict seemed imminent. Since
1S99. however, the inost friendly relations
have been established with France, and
the opinion now prevails here that all the
Italian frontiers should be equally pro
tected, not for aggressive purposes, but
sy that Italy may be ready for all possible
occurrences. Consequently, the proper
authorities hayebeen studying tho best
method of Insuring safety of the. peninsula
along the Eastern Alps, which are strate
gically Italy's weakest point, as Austrian
territory so projects into Italy as to .en
able a hostile army to be In the Ireart
of Lombardy or Venetla after a few davs
marching. Therefore a bill will be pre
sented to Parliament making the neces
sary appropriation for the fortification
of the Italian frontier in the direction of
the Eastern Alps, but any uneasiness on
the subject in Austria Is not justified,
Italy's object being merely defensive.
MAY CLOSE SIAM TO GAMBLING
Reform Spirit Strikes the King,
Thanks to Missionaries.
NEW YORK. March IS. Permission to
take steps which, may-end. legalised gam -
bling in-his country has been asked of
several treaty nations by the King of
Slam, according to the advices received
by the Rev. Arthur J. Brown, secretary
of the Presbyterian .board of foreign
missions. Requests are to be sent to
America, England, Germany and other
governments for permission to raise
slightly the import duties In order that
a part of the revenue now accruing from
the gambling concessions throughout
Slam may be replaced. The larger part
of the revenue will bo derived from an
increased land tax.
Sliam is an extra-territorial country,
and its Import duties are regulated by
treaty. Secretary Brown declares that
a. present gambling is the besei-ng sin
of the country, where every town has Its
"ofilclal" gambling-house, licensed by the
government, which frequently auctions
the privilege. These houses are conducted
openly and In many of them free enter
tainments, theatrical and otherwise, are
given nightly to attract patronage.
The missionaries have long pointed out
to the King that the gambling habit is
Inimical to the best interests of Slam, and
that money the government derived there
by was obtained at a ruinous cost to
character and legitimate industry. The
King is now said to have accepted this
view and will attempt to Institute reforms.

'L" TRAINS COME IN COLLISION
Reckless Motorman Causes Wreck
and Passengers Cry "Lynch Him."
NEW YORK. March 16. Two persons
were badly hurt and a dozen others slight
ly injured while hundreds were thrown
into a panic of fear by a rear-end collis
ion between two south-bound Sixth-avenue
elevated trains at Seventy-second
street and Columbus avenue during the
forenoon rush hour today. A train which
had just stopped at the station was run
into by cars that bad' been following
closely. The accident Is thought to have
been due to failure of the air brakes of
the second train to work.
Passengers said that the collision was
due to the attempts of the motorman of
tho rear train to discover how near he
could bring his train to the one ahead of
him without hitting It. They aver that
he made several such attempts before
the accident and then became confused
and failed to stop his train In time.
Passengers on both trains became wild
ly angry when they discovered the cause
of the accideat. and made a rush for
the motorman. with cries of "Lynch the
motorman." and "Mob him." Police re
serves were called 6ut.
On the arrival of -the police the passen
gers demanded that the motorman be
arrested, but they declined, saying they
could not take him from his train.

Tammany Tiger Badly Scared.
With all these combined, it is no won
der that. Tammany Hall is spurring on
its leaders to do everything to counteract
the effect of the President's work. Tam
many is an organization that plays poli
tics S63 days a year (except In leap year,
when It adds 2 hours) and always has Its
political hand on the pulse of the people.
District leaders all over the East Side
have reported to Big Chief Murphy that
their constituents are getting away from
them, and the amount of work that is
being done is astonishing. Here Is how
one district leader describes the situa
tion: "We have more to fear from Roosevelt's
Influence than from all the reformers
that ever figured In the political history
of the city. Sometimes a reformer Is
good for two fights, seldom for more than
one. and never for three.
,"The President is the first man I ever
knew, outside of Tammany Hall, who
understands how to win and hold the
affections of the working classes. If the
Republicans In this town had a dozen
men like him, Tammany would lose its
control of the situation forever. For
tunately for us the average Republican
leader does not understand how to cam
paign on the East Side. He regards it as
a slumming expedition, lets bis feelings
ge known, and for that reason we have
year after year rolled up big majorities.
"With Roosevelt it Is different. Why,
you would not dare to say a word against
the President in any saloon on the East
Side nowadays. It would mean a licking
and a good one, too.
Hard Work to Counteract Him.
"I have called my election district cap
tains together, and have carefully can
vassed every voter In the Assembly dis
trict. We gave Bryan COM majority In
the dark days of 1S96, and are generally
good for 3303, but with an election to
morrow I honestly believe the Republi
cans would win out.
"At the present time I have men work
ing in every block, and. where it is pos
sible. In every tenement house, explain
ing to the voters in heart to heart talks
that Roosevelt is not the Republican
party, and that they must not go back
on Tammany Hall simply because they
like the President.
"We will keep this work up' all Sum
mer, if necessary, and hope to bring the
bulk of the voters back Into line because
it Is constant, steady work that counts,
and the Republican leaders as usual
are doing nothing to retain the advan
tage they now enjoy.

very clearly that the President has a
strong hold on the people. I was sur

LOW GRADE FLOUR
Japanese Are Buying Supplies
TO FEED RUSSIAN PRISONERS
Millers In the East Underbid Port
land Firms by Reason of Poor
Quality of Their Flour and
Advantageous Rates. .
Minneapolis millers have found a mar
ket for their flour in Japan. This Is
trade that naturally belongs on this
Coast, but by reason of low freight rates
and the peculiar quality of their goods,
the Easterners have managed to secure
a foothold on the other side. Moat, If
not all, the business has been worked up
by flour brokers on this Coast.
The Minneapolis product that Is now
going forward to Japan will not find Its
way into the stomachs of the little brown
men. for Oregon flour is none too good
for them, but is Intended for food for the
Russian prisoners captured in Manchuria.
It Is the lowest grade of flour that is
manufactured and does not come within
many degrees of equaling the poorest
flour made In this section. At the same
time, it will probably make better bread
than the Russian troops ever had before
In their lives.
Added to the low price that the Minne
apolis millers are enabled to make on
their flour Is a through freight rate from
that city to Japan that works against
the Interests of exporters here. Minne
apolis flour can be laid down In Kobe
at a rate of JS a ton, while the steamer
rate from Portland alone Is $5 by the reg
ular lines. Besides this, It costs $3 a
ton to haul the wheat from Walla Walla
to this city and more than $3 from other
parts of the Inland Empire. This puts
Minneapolis In a better position than
Portland, quality being the same. The
Minneapolis mills, however, are able to
turn out a lower grade of flour than the
mills here and can name a corresponding
ly lower price to Japanese buyers, hav
ing underbid Portland shippers fully S5
cents per barrel. This Is a big Item with
the Mikado's government; especially when
it has to feed men of another race who
are not supposed to be very particular
with the quality of their food.
All of the flour shipped up to date from
Minneapolis for this purpose has gone
across the Pacific by steamer from Seat
tle. It Is not known how large a quan
tity has been thus forwarded, but as
most of the lots have been small. It Is
not thought that the aggregate Is heavy.
A dispatch from Minneapolis printed yes
terday morning statctt that 200,000 sacks
had been ordered for shipment "to the
Orient, and this is believed by flour men
here to represent the full amount taken
since the movement started. Shipments
of an equal amount In the regular course
of trade are made by steamers from
Portland every three weeks, but the ar
ticle sent from here grades far above
that which the Japanese government is
It is uncertain how long the Japanese
will continue buying Minnesota-made
flour for the Russian victims, but It Is
presumed the business will last as long
as the war does. There are now some
thing like 5,000 Russians corralled In
prisons throughout the Japanese Islands
and this number will be swelled to fully
"75.000 men by the capture of Mukden.
These unfortunates will shortly be trans
ported to Japan and It Is to provide for
their subsistence that the government has
sent rush orders in the last few days to
the Minneapolis millers.
It is also curious to note In this 'connec
tion that most of the wheat used In man
ufacturing flour to fill this order was
raised In the Pacific Northwest. That the
Minneapolis millers could haul this grain
to their mills, grind It Into flour, ship

TROUBLE ON THE WATERFRONT
Clash Between Lonos'ioremen's and
It looks as If the trouble that has been
brewing for a long time between the Sail
ors' and Longshoremen's Unions was
about to como to. a head. There was a
slight disturbance at the Eastern & West
ern Lumber Company's mill yesterday
that men along the waterfront believe is
the beginning of the clash between these
two organizations in their struggle for
control of the loading privileges.
The trouble started on the brig Lurline,
which had Just arrived to load lumber for
San Francisco. The longshoremen were
doing most of the work, but three mem
bers of the Sailors Union were also, em
ployed in putting aboard the cargo. This
was more than the longshoremen could
stand, and after a short conference they
ordered the sailors away. As the latter
were in the minority on the premises they
took the warning and departed.
A mixed force was also engaged In load
ing the steamer Redondo. When nearly
all of her cargo was aboard, the sailors
objected to working alongside the men of
the other union.' and all hands quit work.
Captain Ahlln took the matter into his
own hands, by discharging the entire
crowd, and finished loading the steamer
with his own crew. The longshoremen
claim a victory in this case, as they say
they have Captain Ahlln's promise that
all the work In the future will be given
to their order.
The Sailor's Union still has the loading
of the barkentlne T. P. Emlgh, at the
Portland Lumber Mill, and the members
say they will stay with the' Job until all
the cargo Is aboard. The longshoremen,
on the other hand, declare that when the
proper time comes they wlll assert their
rights in the matter and take the work
away from the rival organization.
The case of J. W. Paul, the local agent
of the Sailors' Union, who was arrested
on a charge of harboring seamfen, said
to have been preferred by the longshore
men, will come up for a hearing In Jus
aice Reid's court this afternoon and It is
probable there will be some further de
velopments In the waterfront war.

What To Do
For Heart Trouble
I back up my advice with this Remarkable
Offer: A Full Dollar's Worth of my
Remedy Free to Prove that I am Bight.
I ask no reference, no deposit, no security.
There is nothing to promise, nothing- to
pay either now or later. To any; heart suf
ferer who has not tried my remedy Dr,
Snoop's Restorative I will gladly give. free,
not a mere sample, but a full dollar bot
tle. I am warranted in making this unusual
offer because mine Is no ordinary remedy.
It does not vainly try to stimulate the
heart. Such treatments are worse than
useless. It goes straight to the cause of all
heart trouble tho heart nerves and
strengthens them and vitalizes them and
restores them. Then that Is the end of heart
For the, heart Itself has no mors self
'control than a common sponge. It is made,
to beat by a tender nerve so tiny that It is
scarcely visible to the naked eye. Tet ten
thousand times a. day this delicate nerve
must cause the heart to expand and contract.
The heart Is about the size of your clenched
fist. Open and close your Sst a dozen times.,
even, and you will see the monstrous labor
this little nerve must do.
The heart nerve Is only one of the branches
of the great sympathetic nervous system.
Each branch of this system Is so .closely
allied with the others that weakness or ir
regularity at any point is apt to spread.
Heart trouble frequently arises from Stom
ach trouble through sympathy, and Kidney
trouble may also follow. For each of these
organs Is operated by -a branch of these
same sympathetic nerves the Inside nerves.
The bond of sympathy between the nerves
that operate the vital organs has a useful
purpose, as well. For what will cure weak
ness In one branch will surely cure weak
ness In every branch what will restore one
center will surely restore them all.
There Is nothing new about this nothing
any physician would dispute. But It re
mained for Dr. Shobp to apply this knowl
edge to put it to nractlcal use. Dr. Shoop's
Restorative is the result of a quarter of a,
century of endeavor along this very line. It
.does not dose the organ or deaden the pain
but It does go at once to the nerve the

It up. and strengthens It and makes it well.
If you have heart trouble and have never
tried my remedy, merely write and ask. I
will send you an order on your druggist
which he will accept as gladly as he would
accept a dollar. He will hand you from,
his shelves a standard-sized bottle of - my
prescription, and he will send the bill to me.
This offer Is made only to strangers to my
remedy. Those who have once used the Re-i .
storatlve do not need this evidence. There
are no conditions no requirements. It Is
open and frank and falh It is the supreme
test of my limitless belief. All that I ask
you to do Is to write write today.
