Supplementary Note Believed
to Elaborate Contention
Made Heretofore.
Touching on Right of Inherltnce,
Japanese Position Seems to In
- dicato Purpose to Suggest
Arbitration Later On.
WASHINGTON, July 3. The latest
Japanese note supplementary to the re
joinder of June 3. on the California
alien land law protest was delivered
today to Secretary Bryan by Ambassa
dor Chinda. The note Is simply an elab
oration of some of the points contained
in the rejoinder.
Following the policy pursued in the
preceding: phases of the negotiations,
the State Department and the Japanese
Embassy by agreement withheld from
publication any'of the details of this
last note. It is believed, however, to
'relate in large part to the development
of the contention that such legislation
.as the Webb act in California and
measures generally resembling it
adopted by other Western states are
distinctly discriminatory against the
Equality la Demanded.
As a consequence of this, it is be
lieved the Japanese note contends,
these laws place the United States
Go.vernment as responsible for the acts
of its constituent states, in the position
of denying to the citizens and subjects
of a great power with which America
is in treaty relations that equality
which always has been recognized as
a, necessary condition to the main
tenance of such relations.
Thus it is suggested that the protest
rests rather on grounds of interna
tional comity than on the exact stipu
lation of treaties.
Hint of Arbitration Given.
- Concerning another phase of the
Webb law, that which touched the
right of Inheritance, however, the
Japanese contention is that the exist
ing treaty has been specifically vio
lated. The retention and even expan
sion of, this allegation is regarded in
some quarters as indicative of the pur
pose of the Japanese foreign office, in
the event of failure to obtain satisfac
tion by direct negotiation, to suggest
arbitration of the Issues under the
terms of the special arbitration treaty,
protocols for the renewal of which
were signed last week by Secretary
Bryan and the Japanese Ambassador.
Oregon City Publisher Charged With
Criminal Libel.
OREGON CITY, Or., July 3. (Spe
cial.) Charged with criminal libel, M.
J. Brown, editor' and publisher of the
Oregon City Courier, a weekly -paper,
has been indicted by the Clackamas
County grand jury, following the pub
lication in his paper of June 26 of
the allegation that County Judge R. B.
Beatie and County Commissioners Blair
and Magoon rebated their own taxes.
Brown, who came to Oregon City about
two years ago, has been one of the
leaders in the movement to recall trie.
County Judge and Commissioner Blair,
and through the columns of his paper
has been conducting a. campaign
against these two officials.
Other indictments by the grand
jury are as follows:
W. Smith and Louis Himler, charged
with exploding giant powder in the
Clackamas River June 26; II. H.
Hughes, charged with the larceny of
a conveyor chain and three lumber
trucks; Clarence Miller, charged with
having permitted gambling in his
house, and C. W. Carothers. charged
with having given false testimony
before the grand jury in the Miller
Edward Gregg Is Injured as "Somer.
sault" Car Strikes "Gap" Car
Going 94 Miles an Hour.
After being expected more than
once, the long-threatened accident ac
tually did befall the Fearless Greggs
in the course of their "Autos That
Pass in the Air" performance at the
Oaks Amusement Park - yesterday.
Traveling at 94 miles an hour, the
"gap car" driven by Charles Gregg,
crashed into the "somersault" 'car on
its second somersault, and Edward
Gregg, the driver, was instantly
stunned. Despite this, his sister. Al
ice, will make the trip this afternoon.
Added to the excitement was the
crash as the cars smashed the plat
form and the detonating report as two
of the tires on Eddie Gregg's machine
burst. A large number of women
spectators fainted.
Efforts to obtain a physician at once
failed and it was more than half an
hour before young Gregg could be re
suscitated. He Is now suffering from
a severe nervous shock and strain. The
fact that the cars are built of steel
probably saved Gregg's . life.
Another member of the Gregg fam
ily took his place last night, and this
afternoon, his sister. Miss Alice
Gregg, will ride the same car.
It was on July 13 Incidentally a
Friday 1905, that Norman Mack was
killed while riding the same machine
performing a single somersault, a
modification of the same act that the
Greggs are presenting.
Superstition, however, does not wor
ry Miss Gregg, and she declares that
If the weather should not permit the
aerial peril this afternoon, she will
make the ride at 9:30 o'clock tonight.

Judge Hamilton Takes Decision in
Hotel Case Under Advisement.
Circuit Judge Hamilton, sitting spe
cially in Portland, has taken under ad
visement his decision, in the case of
Sidney Norman against Robert E. Ellis,
Edward Boyce, Eugene Day and Jerome
Day, owners of the Portland Hotel, a
suit to collect 118,750, a 5 per cent com
mission on $375,000, the price at which
the Normans sold out their interest in
the Portland Hotel to the Days. Mr.
Norman insisted he brought the parties
together. The defendants denied that
he acted as their agent, saying that
$500 which they admitted giving him
and which he contended was expense
money was, in fact, a gift.
In the course of the evidence it was
brought out that the split between the
Normans and the Days resulted largely
from the Insistence of the Normans that
Sidney Norman be installed as manager
at a salary of $5000 a year. It devel
oped that while the deadlock was on
the Days offered to sell to the Normans
for $390,000 and the Normans to the
Days for . $385,000. The plaintiff as
serted that it was due to his efforts
that the' sale of the Norman in
terest to the Days finally was effected
at $375,000. There was testimony that
the hotel cleared a net profit of $10,000
a month for the months of January to
June, 1911, inclusive.
St. Paul Railroad Circles Think
Frisco Receiver Resigned to
Succeed Elliott. .
ST. LOUIS, July 3. Benjamin L.
Winchell resigned today as receiver of
the St. Louis & San Francisco Rail
road. The resignation was accepted, it
was said, and It Is reported that W.
F. Nixon and W. B. Blddle. vice-presidents
of the road, were appointed
receivers. In this capacity they aro
to serve with Thomas H. West, chair
man of the board of directors of the
St. Louis Union Trust Company, which
in the past has handled the Frisco's
Judge Sanborn recently fixed Win
chell's salary as receiver at $1500 a
month. This, it is understood, was
considerably less than his former sal
ary as president of the road, and dis
satisfaction with the salary is gen
erally given as a cause of his res
ignation. ST. PAUL, Juy 3. A rumor that B. L.
Winchell, whose resignation as one of
the receivers of the 'Frisco Railroad
has been accepted, would become con
nected with the Northern Pacific Rail,
road gained circulation here tonight.
When in St. Paul recently in connec
tion with the affairs of the "Frisco Rail
road Mr. Winchell held a conference
with James J. Hill. Neither would dis
close the nature of the conference. It
since has been persistently rumored in
railroad circles here that Mr. Winchell
would become president of the Northern
Pacific and that Howard Elliott, now
holding that position, would become
connected with the New York, New
Haven & Hartford.

City.Stenographers and Secre

Appointees ot Commissioners Are
Under Civil Service Rule La
Roche to Settle Question as
to Probable Exams.
With the appointment by members
of the City Commission of private sec
retaries, stenographers and other office
employes, some of whom are not on
the eligible lists of the Civil Service
Commission, a number of questions re
garding the civil service rules have
arisen wbich will be submitted to City
Attorney LaRoche for settlement. It
is probable that all private secretaries
and clerks will have to take a civil
service examination and qualify before
they can be retained in the city service
The question was put to the City
Attorney when Purchasing Agent Wood
appointed a stenographer, a chief clerk,
a bill clerk and another clerk for his
department, none of whom was on the
eligible liBt of the Civil Service Com
mission. Two of the Commissioners
have appointed private secretaries.
In the case of the stenographer In
the purchasing department it is Bald
that the present incumbent cannot hold
the place because there is an eligible
list for stenographers and that six per
sons have qualified for the Job. In the
case of the other employes it will be
necessary for a competitive examina
tion to be held for each position, it Is
said. The three who pass highest in
the examination will receive appoint
ments. The same, it is said, will apply
to the private secretaries of Commis
sioners, but not to the. private secre
tary of the Mayor, because that posi
tion is specifically eliminated from
civil service in the charter.
The Council as a whole appoints the
heads of departments, but not the em
ployes of lesser rank. The Commis
sioners themselves appoint secretaries
and the heads of departments appoint
the employes under them.

Thrilling Feature Presented to Globe
Theater Spectators.
A play, thrilling throughout, excel
lently acted by a star vitagraph cast,
magnificently staged, abounding with
dramatic scenes and ending in a great
climax of electricity, fire and storm, is
the "Tiger Lily," shown for the first
time Wednesday night. The story is
woven around the lives of a woman
and her pet tiger.
She first introduces the tiger as a
sensation at a mask ball where she
goes as the tiger lily. She attempts
later to use him to compass the death
of a rival, not knowing that rival is
her own daughter, whom she had de
serted years before. An electric storm
accompanied by fire, prevents the ac
complishing of this design Just as she
learns it is her own daughter of whom
she is jealous.
The climax is all that could be de
sired. Right is triumphant, love gets
its own and the guilty, including the
tiger, perish. It has been pronounced
by the Eastern cities as one of the
best stories produced in films. It will,
run at the Globe for the remainder of
this week.
