the New York Time correspondent
from various thoroughly trustworthy ,
oun-M lo the effect that this Govern
roent has determined to give the Oor- t
ernment of Japan a striking proof or Its
cordiality and good will by taking up
for Immediate action the matter of negotiating-
a new treaty to replace the
treaty of commerce and navigation now
In f.rce between the two countries,
vhirh would expire by limitation on
July 17. 112.
It la furthermore the derision of the
Government to wtj-Id to the request of
Japan that tha puracrnph of article 3
of tha existing treaty whlrh specifically
exempts from tha stipulations of tha
treaty "the laws, ordinance and regu
lations with regard to trade, tha Immi
gration of laborers, police, and public
rurlty which are In force or which mny
hereafter be enacted In either of the
l countries." .hall not appear In tha
On both these points the present at
titude of the American Government i
Rot only strongly conciliatory to Japan,
but It Is a reversal of the attitude that
has been maintained up to within a com
paratively short time. The preliminary
exrhapse of views has been going on for
some little time, and It is the hope of
both liovemments to have the matter
concluded In time for action by tha Sen
ate at this session.
In view, however, of the concession
to Japan In regard to tha elimination of
the provision regarding the immigration
of laborers. It Is problematical whether
such a treaty can be ratified by the
tenate at this session.
Such a concession t to Japan by the
Government Is certain to encounter de
rided opposition on the part of the
Senators from the Pacific Coast and.
while they might not be able to muster
tha votea necessary to prevent ratifica
tion, they could easily prevent the
matter from coming to a vote at all
by Insisting; on their right to discuss
It at length.

understood-! tohavo the approval of the
President, while others favored the
DalxeU bill. DalielU being the ranking
member of the ways and means com
mittee, secured the adoption of bis bill
by the committee, but tha influence of
the President secured the Insertion In it
of evveral of the most Important features
of the Longworth bllL
Thera la no certainty that a majority
of the House of Representatives will vote
for a tariff commission bl!L Certain It
Is that there will be a fight on tha floor,
but even more certain that there will be
a much more bitter fight when the bill
goes before the Senate. In fact. If the
bill Is passed by the Houoe. It probably
can not pass the Senate In the short
session, because certain Democratic Sen
ators will Institute a filibuster, and only
a very weak filibuster can prevent a
vote being taken this session. t
In all probability the most that can be
hoped for at the present session la an
appropriation of eX.0. which. It Is esti
mated, will keep the present tariff board
at work for the next two years. The
Republican leaders think they can pass
.i. i .nnrnriitlon. but down In their
hearts they know full well they can not

Subsidy Bill Seems Doomed.
The President has not made as strong
a fight for the ship subsidy bill as for
the tariff commission, but he has had a
number of conferences with leading Re
publicans of the Senate and House, and
on his suggestion the Gallinger and
Humphrey bills have been modified in
scope. In the hope of reducing objection
and opening the way for favorable ac
tion. The fate that awaits this meas
ure, even In Its modified form, is a
question for speculation. There are
votes enough to pass a subsidy bill
through the Senate. If the bill can be
brought to a vote, but already there has
been considerable filibustering, and. If
this fight Is continued. It may be found
necessary to abandon the subsidy bill
for tha present. Abandonment now
mesne lsying the bill aside until the
Republicans again have full control of
the entire Congress and the Presidency.
There la considerable doubt whether a
majority of the House of Representa
tives, as it Is now constituted, would
vote for even the modified Humphrey
bllL The fear of subsidy advocates Is
that the DemccraU and Insurgents will
again combine on this measure and. if
they do, the bill is dead. There has
be-n no teft vote, but the Indications
are that the bill has a very slender
chance of passing the House, even
though It may get through the Senate.
The great diversity of opinion on the
question, of conservation threatens t'
block all legislation looking to opening
up the vast resources of tho West that
sre now tied up In withdrawals. The
President Is anxious that Congress sharll
provide some means whereby the pub
lic coal lands may be developed on a
fair and reasonable basis; he would like
to see the question of water power con
trol and development settled by Con
gress, so that the power sites now with
held from development may be openod
to proper use. The phosphate, oil and
other valuable public lands, thst are to
day withheld from entry, he would have
opened up on some reasonable plan. x--It
la realized that such an Intricate prob
lem can hardly be disposed of by Con
gress In the brief time that will re
main after the appropriation bills and
other privileged measures are out -or the
way. It is almost a sure prediction that
all conservation legislation of import
ance will have to go over to the next
Congress. Including the bills providing
for opening to development the vast
coal fields of Alaska.
There are two bills pending affecting
the West which stand a good chance of
passing If the House rules csn be con
strued so aa to allow their considera
tion; one the Warren bill authorizing
the Reclamation Service to sell surplus
water from Its reservoirs and canals,
and the other the Mondell bill, intro
duced at tha request of the President,
permitting appeals to the Supreme
Court of the District of Columbia from
decisions of the Interior Department,
and also authorizing the-transfer of tha
Cunningham coal land cases directly to
the court for decision.
The report of the Board of Army En
gineers shows clearly that the Govern
ment, for years to come, will be unable
to build extensions to many of the big
Irrigation projects begun by the Recla
mation Sen-Ice. Tet the Government
will have sufficient storage to supply the
surplus lands, and could sell this surplus
water to Irrigation districts ,or other
private concerns, so that they could
build distributing systems snd bring the
additional lands under Irrigation. But
this can not be done unless the War
ren bill passes the House. There are
several hundred thousand acres of land
In the West that can be Irrigated if
this law passes.

Subjection of Flame.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 16. (Special.)
With her bow far down In the water
and her engines working under very
slowly, the Pacific Coast Steamship
Company's steamer Queen arrived in
port shortly before 3 o'clock this morn
ing, after narrowly escaping destruction
by fire at sea. . .
Lining her rails and crowding her
decks were 97 passengers. Including
many women and children. who nad
passed through the trying ordeal of
fire nt sea. and yet maintained an Indif
ferent air toward disaster. Passengers
dined unconcernedly, while an Im
promptu concert was given In the sa-
in' V i.i.
In the hold, with faces streaked with
soot and drenched to the skin with
water, the members of the crew of the
Queen, headed by Captain George Zeli,
fought desperately to extinguish the tire,
or at least keep it under control until
tHe fire boats came to their rescue.
Fireboats Swamp Blaze.
After the fire tug David Scannell had
come alonnslde. the men left off work
ing and a stream of water from the tugs
battery subdued the flames. Then the
crew turned attention to the passengers
and saw to It that they were bundled
overboard Into launches and sareiy
transferred to the shoe.
The Queen proceeded up the bay to
Mission mudflats, where she remained
flooded throughout the day. After the
survey by the underwriters a tug with
a pumping outfit was put to work tt
reducing the 18 feet of water In the
steamer's forward hold.
From a preliminary survey It has been
ascertained that the Interior woodwork
In the forward part of the ship has
been, burned and a larger part of tha
cargo. No estimate of the damage was
given by tho steamship officials.
Crew Fights Fire Desperately.
It was 5:15 when the fire alarm
called the members of the crew and the
officers to their stations. The officers
gave their attention to the passengers
and went about assuring them that there
was no danger, and calling upon them
to preserve order.
The only way to reach between decks
was through the forward hatch and. aa
the way was blocked yith a large ship
ment of perishable goods, It was neces
r, the seamen to discharge this
part of the cargo over the side.
When a way was cleared. Captain Zen,
with a towel bound about his head, de
scended with the rest of the ship's com
pany and personally directed the work
of fighting the blaze. For two hours
the men worked in the stifling heat and
smoke-filled atmosphere, some of them
toppling over and being obliged to seek
the open air. When the Norwood and
President arrived on the scene in -response
to the calls of the United Wire
less operator, George L. Hayea, the fire
was burning briskly and It was feared
that the fire-fighters would not tet It
Women Cool Amid Danger.
rr' , n naBMnirrii nhowd great
presence of mind and coolness, the men
of the Queen testify, and many retired
for the night while the fire. was burn
ing. An Instance is cited of Mrs. J.
Farquharson. who had Inquired as to
the safety of those on board and then
tucked her little children In their bunks
for the night.
Upon the arrival of the Queen four
members of the crew were taken ashore
for treatment at the Harbor Hospital.
They were overcome by smoke, but suf

SALEM. Or., Jan. 26. (Special. )
Judge Galloway, of the Mnrlon County
Circuit Court, today sustained ' the rul

gon in the case of John Botcher vs. the
Southern Pacific, in which the commission-ordered

the railroad appealed.
Judge Galloway held that it Is not the
province of the court to substitute its
own Judgment for that of the railway
commission, and that the order of the
commission must be sustained, if reas
onable men might differ as to the evi
dence before the commission or as to
! its effect. He also held that the com
mission act is broad enough to cover
orders for the installation or laciiiuaa

Owners Object to Liability Law and
Closing of Street.
MARSH FIELD, Or.. Jan. 26. (Spe
cial.) The Llbby coal mine, three miles
from Marshfleld and owned by the Ore
gon Coal tt Navigation Company, haa
been closed, after having been operated
more than 50 years. It was In' former
years one of the big sources of employ
ment In this .locality.. The mine Is not
worked out. - Patrick Hennessey, local
representative of the company, said to
day that the new employers' liability law
waa one of the several reasons why tho
mine was closed.
The company also operates tha
steamer M. F. Plant, plying between
Coos Bay and San Francisco, and Mr.
Hennessey said that It had not been
decided whether the Plant would con
tinue on tha run.
The company last year built a $10,000
warehouse and dock at the extreme
north end of Front street. For some
months past a part of Front street which
was not Improved was closed by the
city. This action. Mr. Hennessey added,
was detrimental to the business of the
steamer Plant and was another reason
why the company decided to shut down
All of the company's property. In
cluding the steamer, the coal mine and
about 3000 acres of land adjoining
Marshfleld. Is for sale.
