"WILL NOT DISCUSS NEUTRALITY
French Chamber Shuts Off Interpel
lations by Socialists.
TARIS, May 15. The Chamber of Depu
ties reassembled today after the Easter
holidays. M. "Vaillant (Socialist) present
ed an interpellation of the government on
the observance of neutrality in the Far
East, and M. de Preszcns (Socialist) Inter
pellated the Ministry on the neutrality
Premier Rouvier. In reply, said the gov
crment, as recently explained, had given
explicit orders to the authorities in the
Far East to observe strictly neutrality,
and this continued to be the situation.
The interpellations were thereupon post
poned indefinitely at the government's
request, and it was announced that the
government had abandoned its intention
to Issue a yellow book on the neutrality
question. This brought a sharp discus
sion between M. Jlouvier and MM. Vail
lant and De Preszens. The Premier ap
pealed to the patriotism of the Deputies
to refrain from accusations affecting the
good faith of the country, pointing out
that a debate on the subject would not
be advantageous, and might lead to em
barrassments. M. Vaillant asserted amid an uproar
that the government' orders to "observe
neutrality were not respected. He said:
"Neither does the Russian fleet respect
our nutrallty, and it is necessary to make
it do so. It Is necessary to show our
impartial neutrality by acts instead of
M. De Preszcns declared the country
was entitled to know the exact situation,
so as to be able to Judge of Its responsi
bilities. M. Rouvier made a final statement to
the effect that the word of France was
not open to debate. The government's
motion for an indefinite postponement of
the interpellations prevailed by 410 to Si
TRIES TO KEEP JAPAN COOIi
Britain Realizes Her Ally 31ay Drag
Her Into War.
LONDON, May 15. At the Foreign Of-'
fico today the Associated Press learned
that Foreign Secretary Lansdowne has
made no further representation to the
French government regarding the contin
ued stay of the Russian Pacific fleet In
Cochln-Chlna waters. No alarm is felt
In government circles here that Japan
will press her protest so far as to produce
a rupture of peace, but it Is fully recog
nized that Japan has the power to bring
her ally into the conflict by a hostile act.
Therefore the British government, the
Associated Press understands, is using
every effort to keep the Japanese cool
and at the same time urging upon France
the necessity of respecting neutrality, in
which Great Britain agrees In principle
Baron Hayashl, the Japanese Minister
here, said to the Associated Press today
that ho was positive that if France sent
a definite demand to St. Petersburg, Vlcc
Admlral Rojestvcnsky would not remain
in French waters 24 hours. Minister Hay
ashl characterized as absurd the French
charges that Japan Intended ultimately to
attempt lo annex Cochln-Chlna. He ap
plied a like characterization to some state
ments in the United States regarding the
"'Korea, Manchuria and other territory
nearer Japan." said the Minister, "are
more desirable than Cochln-Chlna: but I
repeat the Japanese have no territorial
ambitions. Japan is large enough for us.
We are simply fighting for national exis
tence.' FLEET NOW SAILING NORTH
Latest Is That It Left Honkohc Bay
LONDON, May 16. The dispatch from
Saigon to the Associated Press, stating
that the Russian fleet had sailed north
ward from the vicinity of Honkoho Bay
early in the morning of May 34, is the
latest news available In London regard
ing the movements of Vicc-Admiral Ro
jestvcnsky. A dispatch from Hong Kong to the
Daily Mall says that Hamilton King,
American Minister at Bangkok, who is a
passenger on board the steamer Pitsanu
loke. states that on May 11 the steamer
passed 14 Russian warships 21 miles
north of Kamranh Bay.
According to the Dally Telegraph's cor
respondent at Toklo. during a great storm
several days ago the Japanese converted
cruiser Nokko was damaged by striking a
reef off Fusan.
The same correspondent says that dur
ing the last month the Russian warships
consumed 120.000 tons of coal and adds
that whero it was obtained is a mystery.
The correspondent further says that It
has been ascertained that the Russian
fleet established a wireless station on
French territory and communicated with
St Petersburg by way of Saigon.
A Norwegian steamer, the Dally Tele
graph's correspondent says, reports hav
ing heard cannonading from S to 11 o'clock
in the morning of May 11 In 33:43 north
latitude and 129.20 cast longitude, and
that a Japanese torpedo-boat was seen
running in that direction.

Russians remain outside French limits.
It Is maintained that if the fleet is off

breach of neutrality so long as the ships
remain on the high seas, and the officials
add that French surveillance assures that
the Russian fleet is remaining beyond tho
French three-mile limits.

PARIS. May 16. The Journal's Toklo
correspondent cables as follows:
"In the course of nn interview. Count
Okuma (formerly Japanese Foreign Minis
ter), referring to the Kamranh and Hon
kohc Incidents, stated that the presence
of the Russian warships in Indo-Chinese
waters created a very disquieting situa
tion. It was only the . remembrance of
their long friendship with France which
restrained the Japanese from proceeding
to extreme measures. The government
was endeavoring not to embitter the sit
uation, but it was necessary for France
to adopt a definite attitude, otherwise
popular excitement would become irre
sistible. The Japanese thoroughly under
stood French obligations toward their
Russian ally, but tho present circum
stances were not affected by considera
tions of European politics.
"Concerning peace. Count Okuma de
clared that Japan would neither demand
a cessation of hostilities nor consider any
proposition leaving Russia an opportunity
for future revenge. 'Japan must become
the arbiter of the Far East,' he said."
RUSSIA EXPECTS BATTLE NOW
Combined Fleet Goes North In Search
ST. PETERSBURG. May 13 (5:30 P. M.)
A naval action within a few days is re
garded as likely in well-informed naval

Admiral Rojestvcnsky and Hear-Admiral
Nebogatoff joined forces May 10. There,

at Seoul, Corea, by way of Chcfoo, says
it was rumored early last week, in the
Corcan capital, that the Japanese recently
landed 30,000 troops at Gcnsan. Large
quantities of military stores have landed
recently at Pukcheng, to the north of

respondent asserts, to an advance being
made shortly on Vladivostok. General

France Accused of Deceit and Insin

TOKIO. May 16. The feeling against
France, which has been dying out, is again
becoming stronger and it is feared that
that the government may yet be forced
to act- It is openly charged by the semi
official newspapers that France has again
proven her Insincerity and that she never
had any intention of driving Russia out
of French waters. In order to try and
deceive England and Japan, she made the
fleet move, but as soon as the hue and
cry died down It was again afforded a
refuge In a French harbor.

WALL STREET BACKING HIM
Has. Been Big Buyer and. Plans to
Push .July Wheat to a Dollar, but
Moves Quietly Condi
tions Favor Him.
CHICAGO. May 13. iSpccIal.) John W.
Gates is said to be at the head of a big
bull movement In July wheat. "Within the
last three or four days, it is reported by
men who were close observers of his oper
ations in the celebrated May deal, he has
acquired a big foundation upon which to
erect prices. His followers are said to
include several of tho powerful stock
market millionaires who -went down wjtii
him in his efforts to boost the price of
May wheat to or beyond $1.50 a bushel.
This rumor has .given color to th belief
that he and the Wall-street men who
stood by him until tho deal was shifted
to the experienced hands of the Armour
workers did not lose as much on the May
transactions as reports have indicated.
"Conditions show plainly enough to me
that Mr. Gates has been one ot tho best
buyers of July wheat within he last few
days, not only here, but at the North
western markets." said a pit trader of
prominence, "and I have reason to be
lieve that he is planning to lift tho op
tion to the dollar mark. Evidently, if
he is in on such a deal, he Is banking
heavily on what the future has in store
for tho growing cereal. To date the
weather conditions have been almost Ideal
for the "Winter crop, but any sort of a
setback frost or rust, or too much rain
would be a signal for a bull endeavor.
Gates figures that there arc too many
bears in July wheat bears whoso senti
ment is based wholly on the good prog
ress of tho grain. Personally I believe
that 'too many bears is a good bull argu
ment, for, so long as I can remember,"
the market has never moved as a vast
Gates Is said to be moving as rapidly
as possible, operating through the more
obscure brokers and giving the names
of others that are associated with hira in
his new endeavor.
ISMAY REBUKES IVERCLYDE
Says Head of Cunard Xilno Once
Tried to Form Trust.
LIVERPOOL. May 13. A sensation has
been created In shipping circles by the
publication of a long letter of protest
from J. B. Ismay to Lord Iverdyde
against the attitude of the Cunard Com
pany assumed in the recent dispute and
there is much curiosity as to how the
letter became public property. It being
known that Mr. Ismay never intended
that it should be divulged. The letter
maintains that the Cunard Company's
distrust of the steamship combine Is
inconsistent, because in 1SSS the Cunard
Company sought to form a similar inter
national combination with the American
and other lines, but excluding the White
Star Line. The chairman of the Cunard
Company at that time expressed a. strong
opinion that such a combination would be
favorably regarded In the highest political
circles of Great Britain It is difficult,
therefore, Mr". Ismay's- letter continues,
to understand why a. similar combina
tion now should. In the Cunard Company's
opinion, be detrimental and menacing,
merely because the Cunard Instead of the
White Star Line Is not included.

OUR REMARKABLE EXILES
Interesting Colony of Americans Liv
ing in British Honduras.
"No more remarkable colony of Amer
ican exiles can be found anywhere than
Toledo settlement in British Honduras,"
Bald R. F. Jackson, of New Orleans, to a
Star reporter a day or two ago. "It Is
a bit of Louisiana In a tropic settlement
preserved to show us what the good old
Creole days' were like. There the state
ly and punctilious life of the vanqulshca
Southern aristocracy Is still found with
its ceremonious hospitality. Its finespun
stickling for the point of honor. Its pride
of ancestry and its patriarchal relations
between master and servant. For more
than 40 years time has stood still, leav
ing the exiles untouched by modern pro
gressive Ideas, and making their home to
day the truest picture to be found any
where of life and manners In the old
South befo' de wah.'
"The close of the Civil War found many
of the planters of the cotton states m
sore straits. Their slaves had been set
free, their crops and livestock seized oy
friend or foe, their homes burned or de
spoiled, and their plantations turned Into
a battleground for contending armies. As
a result a considerable number of the
most prominent families of the South
gathered together such of their portable
property as had yet escaped the general
wreck and emigrated.
"Some of these went to Argentina, set
tling near Buenos Ayrcs, where the sur
vivors and their descendants arc today
objects of charity. Misfortune followed
them to their new home, and they are
now poorer than the poorest of the de
spised 'white trash of the states they
abandoned. Others went to Canada, a.
considerable number to Cuba and others
to the West Indies; a few to Mexico and
Brazil, and Ji families to British Hon
duras. Of these U families all were from
the neighborhood of New Orleans. All
belonged to the old Creole aristocracy
the proudest and most exclusive in tho
land dating their titles to their estates
back to the early days of French ana
Spanish occupation, and boasting that
they had kept their blood pure througn
all changes of government and all vicis
situdes of fortune. Rich family took along

to follow the fortunes of their old mas

the Summer of 1SSS, and were cordially
welcomed by the colonial authorities
They were given 600 acres each of crown
lands, and. were exempted from taxation
for ten years. The new settlement was
"The example of the aristocratic South
erners In carving out for themselves new
homes In the tropic jungle has rarely been
emulated. They had been reared in the
lap of luxury. A host of slaves had al
ways been ready to obey or anticipate
their slightest wish. Yet hcy set to work
with ax and machete, tolling In the woods
alongside their former chattels, to pro
