TOKIO CROWDS ARE RIOTOUS
Mob Office of Government Organ
and Hold Mass Meetings.
TOKIO. Sept- 6. The first turbu
lence attendant on the popular anger
over the torms of peace arranged with
Russia took place today. A mass
meeting to protest against the action
of the government was called to take
place at Hibiya Park, but the metro
politan police closed the gates and at
tempted to prevent the assemblage of
the people. The municipality protested
against the action of the police, and
.finally the gates were thrown open and
a largo crowd gathered and voted in
favor of resolutions, declaring the na
tion humiliated and denouncing the
terms upon which the treaty of peace
The crowd was serious in its con
duct, rather than angry, and the police
handled it discreetly. The gathering
eventually dispersed in an orderly
Later on, however, a crowd attempt- !
d to hold a meeting In the Shintomi
Theater and the police 'dispersed it
A portion of the crowd then proceeded
to the office of the "Kokumln Shim
bun," the government organ, and be
gan hooting. Three employes of the
paper, armed with swords, appearod at
the doors of the building and checked
the attack, and the police again dis
persed the crowd. It was thought that
the trouble had passed, when sudden
ly a portion of the crowd made a, rush
at the building, hurled stones and dam
aged some of the machinery.
Several persons were injured during
the attack, but the police eventually
cleared the streets of the crowd and
arrested a number of tho rioters. The
disorder is not general and the situa
tion is not serious.
Similar meetings have been held at
Osaka and Nagoya, which in round
terms denounced tho government and
asked them to resign. Tho general
sontiment throughout the country
seems to favo reactionary measures,
but it appears clear that the majority
of the people will eventually accept
the result of the peace conference,
however, disappointing it may be.

TOKIO, Sept 1. (Delayed in trans

declares that the purpose of tho war
has been accomplished and says:
'The war has not been fought to

been permanently crippled.

strength to prudently prepare against

Count Okuma, leader of the pro
gressive party. In discussing the set
tlement, said he was unable to recon
cile himself to the result because the
conditions preventing Russian aggres

sufficient "They leave," he said, "an ample
root for Russian ambition in the fu
ture. The conditions prevailing before
the war are liable to repetition at any
time. Both nations agree to evacuate
Manchuria, but, if China is unable to
maintain order there, Russia will have
an opportunity to sow seeds of war,
instead of removing .causes for a fu
ture dispute. It leaves the conditions
exactly as before hostilities began."
REACTION BEGINS TO SET IN

In Favor of Treaty.
TOKIO, Sept 2, 3 P. M (Delayed

defense by the conservative Journals
supporting the government and a full
er and better appreciation of the sit

lic sentiment is showing some evidence
of reaction. The argument that it is
Impossible for Japan to continue tho

The entire nation is keenly disap

throughout the empire has there been
a step taken toward the celebration of

The declines in the market and the
unsatisfactory crop conditions, coupled
naturally with the heavy obligations

in some quarters that a financial de

A prominent banker said today to
an Associated Press representative
that tho Tokio Exchange was an inac

August settlement waa the largest in
the history Qf the xchange. Tho re

conditions within the exchange and not
a correct reflection of goneral condi

There is plenty of monrr la the country
and undoubtedly we will weather any diffi
culty -which may occur. The repatriation of
the army will occupy at least 10 months,
there being In round numbers a million of

cost many million yen. The government
mar seek a domestic loan, but the disap
pointment and depression over the result
may show that the people are unwilling to
subscribe. However, the government pos
sesses considerable money and probably will
manage the matter without embarrassment.
I believe that much of the prersent agitation
will pass away when the people appreciate
the conditions. We win mere than we
started In to fight for. and occupy a highly
satisfactory position before the world. The
cabinet and elder statesmen acted wisely,
although It I probable that public senti
ment will blindly demand that somebody be
sacrificed. Knowing the temper and expec

shown wonderful and commendable courage
by estopping the war.

Adopts Retirement Plan.
After two years of careful labor the di
rectors of the Retirement Association
have succeeded In formulating their plans
to an extent that the health Insurance
features of fraternal Ism. will be Introduced
in the association as an auxiliary.' This
question was decided yesterday afternoon,
at the conclusion of more than seven
hours of debate, in which every phase
of the problem came under strict scru
tiny, and was finally disposed of by a
good, large majority. Briefly stated, the
report recommended three divisions of
the plan retirement and annuity system:
sick and accident benefit plan. In which
the age limit was raised to 65 years from
60 years; plan of retirement on pay with
out establishment of a civil pension list,
by means of a scheme whereby superan
nuated or totally disabled letter-carriers
may be relieved by the first substitute
carrier, who shall receive 60 per cent of
the full salary of the disabled or super
annuated ' carrier, and the Incapacitated
carrier 40 per cent. In the case of a car
rier receiving $1000 a year, he would
retire on J 403 a year, which, as the dif
ferent speakers remarked, would be suf
ficient to keep him from becoming a pub
lic charge, or an object of charity.
Among those taking part in the debate
of the afternoon were John C. Bunton,
.vice-president, who presided at the after
noon session; John J. Goodwin, president
of the board of directors of the Retire
ment Association, who presented the re
port; Charles H. Wilson, of West Bay
City; Messrs. Trciber of San Francisco.

Government Will Go Ahead
With Klamath Irrigation
ABANDON MALHEUR WORK
Xcvrell Says Government Will Xq
Longer Coax Owners of Wagon
Road Lands and Other
OREGON! AN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Sept. 6. (SpedaL) The Govern
ment Irrigation project in the Klamath
basin In Oregon Is certain to be built and
construction will commence at an early
day. This assurance Is given by F. H.
Newell. Chief Engineer of the Reclama
tion Service, who was recently in Klamath
County and at Portland. Mr. Newell is
unable at this time to say along what
lines the Klamath project will be con
structed. Its exfeirt and aggregate cost
depend entirely upon tho amount of land
that Is signed for.
If the owners of large ranches are will
ing to co-operate with the Klamath Water-
Users Association, and will divide their
land Into farm units and dispose of them
according to the terms of the reclamation
law, every irrigable acre In Klamath Ba
sin for which there is water will be re
claimed, but. on the other hand, if these
large landowners are" unwilling to sign
for their lands, the project will be built
upon restricted lines, and possibly ot
more than J2.00Q.O0O will be expended, not
withstanding that more than W.COO.COO have
been set apart for this work.
Promnt Action Expected.
Mr. Newell says the small landowners
in Klamath Basin, men who' understand
and- appreciate the value o f Irrigation,
have already signed for their lands, and
he expects before long the Secretary of
the Interior will put his approval on the
Klamath Water-Users Association, and
immediately thereafter the Reclamation
Service will undertake the construction of
the project, which will water vacant pub
lic lands, and the lands whose ownership
came Into thi Water-Users A-nsocIatlbrtr;
Mr. Newell questions whether many
large landowners will meet the require
ments of the Government, but. If they do
notr they will not receive one drop of wa
ter from the Government canals. No ef
fort will be made by the Reclamation
Service to persuade these owners to sign
for and subdivide their lands. If they care
to, all right; If they are unwllllpg. as
they Indicated to Mr. Newell, the Gov
ernment will go ahead and water all lands
but theirs. -
Leavo Out Large Owners.
After going over the Klamath Basin
and talking with farmers and landowners
and studying the project with his engi
neers, Mr. Newell says there Is apparent
ly nothing which stands. in the way of the
construction or the Klamath project. For
tunately, the lay of the country Is such
that the project can be built In segments,
and the failure of the large landowners
ffo sign for their lands will not hinder
work, nor will it Increase tho cost of the
project to those persons who do sign ulti
mately after Irrigation has been demon
strated a success, and it is shown that a
small Irrigated farm will support a fam
ily. It Is believed the large holdings In
the Klamath Basin wll bo subscribed to
the Government project, but until those
lands are voluntarily subscribed they will
be, left out. There is to be no coaxing.
Malheur Problem Hopeless.
Mr. Newell speaks disparagingly of the
situation In Malheur County. He seems
thoroughly disgusted with the manner In
which the owners of wagon-road lands
under that project have acted, and, while
he does not censure them, he clearly in
dicates that, unless those persons change
their tactics, sign for their lands on a
fair basis and act In absolute good faith
towards the settlers of Malheur County,
these settlers must suffer.
Mr. Newell is now convinced that it was
a mistake to have ever urged the wagon
road landowners to sign for their 33.000
acres of alternate Sections. When they
became convinced that the Government
wanted their lands, they became more,
and more Independent until now they Im
pose terms which the Government cannot
accept, for their acceptance would de
feat the project, therefore the Govern
ment will exert no more pressure upon
the wagon road people if they fail to sign
for their lands.
The money set apart for the Malheur
project may be turned to someXother lo
cality. There are many projects In.other
states where this money could be ex
pended 'immediately, and even now there
is talk of diverting the Malheur allot
ment because of the apparent Inability
of "the Government to get reasonable
terms from" the wagon road owners.
Will Let Yakima Alone.
In the Yakima Valley in Washintgon
the Government has also changed Its
policy and will nd longer urgo landowners
and owners of private Irrigatlorfystems
to adjust their differences. It has offi
cially announced that untM the 'conflict
ing rights of irrigators along the Yak
ima Valley are adjusted on a souad
business basis the Government will not
undertake reclamation In that region and
puts it up to the people themselves to say
that the Government should build and
when it shall hulld. Mr. Newell says the
present situation in the Yakima Valley
is so complicated and Involved that it
would be utter folly for the Government
t9 attempt to enter that field, but, if the
pending conflicts shall bo adjusted and.
work la this direction ki now. under way
then the Government will be able to build
storage works on the headwaters of the
Yakima River and its tributaries and
practically double the irrigated area In
the valley. For the time being the Wash
ington office -will not concern itself over
the Yakima situation, but will leave that
matter in the hands of the supervising
engineer, D. C. Heney. in charge of the
work In Oregon and Washington.

BOXER ORDERS REVIVING
Correspondent Long Resident In tha
Orient Says aiovement Is PolIt-
leal and Bockhlll Was
Misled About It,
TACOMA, Wash., Sept. S. (Special.)
Various reports of the Chinese boy
cott against American-made goods
were brought by the steamship Tre
mont, which arrived from the Orient
today. Probably the best-posted, pas
senger fin the subject was Thomas F.
Millard, special correspondent for
Scribner's Magazine, who has 3pent tha
most of the past four years in study
ing conditions in the Orient. He de
clares that the boycott'is of a more se
rious nature than this Government Is
aware. Mr. Millard, says:
"The boycott Is working an injury
not only to the United States but all
foreign countries. At tho outset our
country was probably the only one af
fected, but matters have changed. Th
newspapers owned or subsidized by
Germans. French and English, for a
while poked fun at the boycott, but
when It began to hurt their countries,
a different opinion was expressed.
Those firms which handle American
made goods also .sell the products of
other countries and it is impossible for
the boycott to damage the trade of one
country without seriously affecting that
"It is even hurting the Chinese in
dustries, which label their products
with American chops or trade-marks.
When the movement started; tho pro
moters never intended to let It go so
far. Most of the Chinese are of such
an ignorant class that, when they get
started. It is like givhfg a bull mora
Mr. Millard Is of the opinion that tha
boycott was inaugurated for political
purposes and not for commercial. In
some parts of China he says the condi
tions are similar to those existing ber
fore the Boxer uprising. Some of tha
old Boxer orders are now being re
vived. "If the Chinese government wanted
to," ha continued, "It could stamp out
this boycott. In Northern China It was
easily squelched. Viceroy Yuan Shi
Kal put his foot down on the plans of
the agitators. They feared that, if tha
order of the Viceroy was disobeyed,
they would be beheaded. I am of the
opinion that, if the other officials had
taken the matter Into hand as flrm,ly
as Yuan Shi Kal did, the boycott would
have been ended before this."
Mr. Millard believes the United States
Government has not been informed
properly regarding the boycott. He
says Minister Rockhill has been given
a wrong street as It were and "did not
know what was keeping the pot boil
ing." Chinese Trade for Pacific Ports.
SEATTLE, Wash., Sept 6. (Spe

that steamship service between north

point. The road Is projected to tap
the southern part of Canton Province
and will furnish a new and rich traffic.
It is proposed by the Chinese cap
italists to divert this to Northern
American ports. The policy of the rail
way promoters 13 strongly against tha
