ALL CHINA AROUSED
Boycott Taking Form of Anti
MERCHANTS CANT STOP IT
Begun to Shut Out Competition, It
Spreads Through Efforts ofiAg
itators'and Reported Out
rages in America.
SHANGHAI. Augr. 13. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) The American
boycott in China Is already more than a
commercial menace. It Is now consid
ered by vnany to be the forerunner of an
anti-foreign agitation. Business men in
Shanghai, who at the beginning were in
clined to laugh, have been astonished at
the manner In which the propaganda has
beon promulgated in the interior.
In Its conception the boycott was be
lieved to have been, fathered by a group
of officials In Pekin. According to re
port, certain Chinese firms with a large
quantity of American goods in stock' toolj
advantage of the movement. They them
selves had bought forward as far as June,
3906, and were anxious to keep their
smaller competitors out of the market.
The latter would be prevented from buy
ing, and the Instigators of the scheme
would be able to sell at their own figures.
Mr. Hockhill, the American Minister, and
the Consul-General in Shanghai, Mr.
Hogers, assured the Chinese that their
case would be considered by the next ses
sion of Congress and for six weeks there
was a lull.
Toward the end of June, however, Mr.
Conger, ex-MInlster to China, made a
speech in which he ridiculed the Idea of
Chinese organization. This speech, wired
out at once by the Chinese agents in
America, brought down a storm of in
dignation in the native press.
Campaign Becomes Vigorous.
The three students and their sister who
were so badly treated In Boston "were
related to Influential officials. The inci
dent occurred at a most unfortunate
time, for there was violent comment In
the Shanghai journals and the demand
lor an effective boycott was resumed. Cer
tain of the younger men In Shanghai, most
of whom had been educated In Japan,
started a vigorous newspaper campaign,
insisting that strong measures must be
' takon to force the United States to re
vise her Immigration laws. A certain
Shanghai paper, edited by a Japanese and
supposedly subsidized by Toklo, was par
ticularly bitter In its attacks on America
and Americans. The native press print
ed sensational stories, claiming, for ex
ample, that 750 Chinese had been mur
dered in New York and that similar af
fairs were of dally occurrence. Subscrip
tions were collected from the wealthy
merchants in Singapore, Penang, Hong
kong, Manila, Canton and Shanghai and
throughout the country. Placards were
posted In the river front cities, cursing
and reviling those who were weak enough
to use American goods. Americans were
hooted in the streets.
Agitators Now in Control.
The movement has now passed entirely
out of the hands of the merchants. The
larger piece goods, kerosene and cigar
ette wholesalers all suggested that It was
time to call a halt But the agitators
were in power. "Where ton years ago
there wore not more than a dozen, there
are'-today 50 Chinamen "Who read newspa
pers. The reports of murders and out
rages in America have Incensed the peo
ple. They now refuse even to buy cer
tain kinds of Japanese and Shanghai
milled .goods, because they resemble the
American articles, being afraid that the
merchants will try to dispose of some of
their boycotted stock under another
The men who encouraged the scheme
In the beginning are now sufferers where
they had expected to reap a rich harvest.
The American manufacturers must be
paid for all the goods that have been or
dered ahead, and it is doubtful -whether
a number of the wealthiest men In
Shanghai will be able to weather the
etorm unless they are able to sell or can
cel their orders.
CHINESE BOYCOTT PLACARD
Consul Sends One, but Says They
Can't Maintain Movement.
"WASHINGTON. Sept 13. The Depart
ment of Commerce and Labor has re
ceived from a United States Consul In
China a copy of placards that have been
distributed in various provinces to stim
ulate the boycott against American goods.
The placards are 4 by 1 feet and are
covered - with crude drawings showing
American policemen clubbing Chinese and
hanging them by the queues. Underneath
the picture Is the statement:
"This is the way the Chinese are treat
ed in the United States."
The Consul, whose name Is withheld,
wrote the department that the Viceroy of
his province Is doing all he can to pre
vent the distribution of the offensive pla
cards, and has offered large rewards for
the names of the persons responsible. He
adds that in spite of the campaign con
ducted by anti-foreign extremists, the
boycott is waning.

MEW TO RESCUE
American .Minister Going
Relief of Albers.
PRISONER IN NICARAGUA
Arrested on Baseless Charge Because
He- Refused to Let Tobacco
Monopoly Steal His Stock
WASHINGTON. Sept 13. After consul
tation between the State and Navy De
partments, it has been decided that a
warship shall be sent to one of the Costa
Rican ports to convey American Minister
Merry, at last accounts Jn San Jose,
northward to the nearest port on the
coast of Nicaragua or Honduras, to the
place where William S. Albers, an Ameri
can citizen, and his brother are confined,
pending a trial on the charge of resist
ing legal process and of Insulting the
President of Nicaragua.
The officials of the State and Navy De
partments decline to make any statement
whatever on this subject Just now, but
it is known that it has received serious
attention, and that the lack of informa
tion as to the exact nature of the offense
charged against Albers and the possibil
ity of his not receiving a falr"trial have
caused an effort to be made to get In
closer touch with the prisoner.
Must Travel Rough Trail.
The gunboat Princeton, now at Pana
ma, is the nearest warship to Ccotal, in
the Province of Segovia, where Albers is
imprisoned. But the last-named town is
70 miles inland, over a rough mountain
range, from the coast and the trail is
not passable bv any vehicles. Amalpa.
on the Gulf of Fonseca, on the southern
boundary of Honduras, appears to be the
nearest port to Ocotal.
The Parlimon Company, whose agont
Albers was, has sent a lawyer named
Brubaker from Philadelphia to Ocotal to
assist in his defense.
An American gentleman of much intelli
gence and high character, who has been
traveling In Central America for the past
few months, engaged in scientific work,
has written a detailed account of the Al
bers case to friends in Baltimore, which
has reached here. He states -that he is
entirely-familiar with the case, and re
ports as follows:
The I4men Company, of .which Albera la
the manager. Is located at Jalaps. Segovia,
near the border of Honduras. This corpora
tion Is engaged In gold and silver mining and
In raising wheat and tobacco and has made
quite large Investments In good faith.
Resisted Illegal Seizure.
It appears that In March. 1905. a company
of armed men, led by one claiming to be a
lieutenant In the Xlcaraguan army and alleg
ing that it was sent by the Government To
bacco Syndicate, demanded of Albers that
he permit It to enter and carry away his
stock of tobacco under seizure.
Albers replied that he had no contraband
tobacco; that he obeyed the law; that he
paid the government; that he held official
receipts for all tobacco In his stores. He
furthermore said that the first who tried to
enter his door would be shot but he would
permit the lieutenant to go through with one
man and Inspect the tobacco. In order that
his astertlons might be proved. This was
done and no contraband tobacco was found.
Following the search of the Llmon Com
pany's premises the executive at Managua,
the capital of Nicaragua, luued a decree
ordering that any one holding tobacco in
stock should obtain a permit and. should he
fall to do this, his tobacco "would be con
fiscated, whereupon several Americana hold
ing tobacco applied for permits asd wero
Baseless Charges Brought.
These American holders thereupon ar
ranged to sell their tobacco to the Syndi
cate, with the exception of Albers. But the
treatment received from Albers, who had In
his place American employes who could have
enforced his threats If necessary, caused the
syndicate managers to misrepresent and ex
aggerate the action of Albers when they re
ported It to the President.
Asre-sult charges of resistance to author
ity and violent abuse of the executive (which
Is a serious offense In many Latin-American
countries) were made at the court of the
district situated at Ocotal.
Judicial warrants for arrests were Issued,
and both the Albers were taken into custody
at Jalapa. while peaceably walking the street
near their place of business. They wero
taken to Ocotal. where as far as known they
are held In custody pending the verdict of
the court which. It may be safely assumed,
will convict them.

after a very careful report, that steam
ship companies can prevent these undesir
able classes from coming to the United
States. He charges that there are
a great many frauds, particularly In
Italy, practiced In getting Immigrant pas
sengers for steamships coming to this

evils is the employment of "runners"
who go through the country and tell the
peasants that all America is a "land of
