SAN FRANCISCO. April 26. "We
between China and Japan is a certainty
unless China complies with the de
mands of the imperial government of
Japan," said Choye Goto, editor of a
Tokio daily newspaper, the Miyako
Shinbun, in an interview here today.
Beyond saying that Japan's demands
are just. Goto declined to discuss them
"If China refuses to accede to these
demands, war Is inevitable." said Goto.
"Japan does not like to enter upon this
war. Refusal to comply with her de
mands, however, will force her to re
sort to arms."
Goto made light of statements to the
effect that there is growing up a sen
timent; in Japan which is unfriendly
to the United States. "I think many
of your writers are too nervous about
the Japanese," he said. -"Of course in
every country there is a low element
that thrives on race prejudice. The in
tellectual Japanese understand the
people of thte United States and har
bor the friendliest of feelings for them.
Japan is at present concerned with the
development of industry and agricul
ture and with the distribution of her
population In centers nearer home.
There is ample land In Manchuria and
we are colonizing it."
Goto, who has spent eight months in
England studying the politics of Great
Britain, has come to this country to
study the political thought and senti

Suggestions, Meant Only to
Be Helpful, Never Acted On
by Governor Ammons.
SLAVERY DECLARED FALSE
Fuel & Iron Company, Which Xever
Paid Dividend' on Common Stock,
Kaised AVages String of Pa
pers Xot Contemplated.
NEW YORK. April 26.- John p. Rocke
feller, Jr.. Sunday gave out a state
ment in amplification of the one he
issued yesterday in answer to that of
Frank P. Walsh, chairman of the
United States Commission on Industrial
Relation's, who made public corre
spondence between Mr. Rockefeller and
L. M. Bowers, former chairman of the
board of the Colorado Fuel & Iron Com
pany. Mr. Rockefeller also reviews at
length incidents in connection with the
Colorado strike situation.
At the outset Mr. Rockefeller reiter
ated his complaint against Chairman
Walsh, whom he charged in yesterday's
statement with drawing false infer,
ences and conclusions from the corre
spondence referred to, which he and his
associates had placed in the hands of
the Commission, waiving all constitu
tional rights protecting private corre
spondence. Letters Not Directed ts Governor.
Mr, Rockefeller characterized as false
the statement of Chairman Walsh that
he (Rockefeller) presumed to dictate
letters that went out to the President
of the United States and to the Gover
nor of the state over the signature of
the Governor of Colorado.
"These facts." Mr. . Rockefeller's
statement declares, "are as follows:
Last May Governor Ammons sent Ma
jor E. J. Boughton, Judge Advocate of
Colorado, to New York. I never met
Major Boughton, but he told Mr. Lee
(Ivy L. Lee, Mr. Rockefeller's repre
sentative), that Governor Ammons had
been disturbed over the misunderstand
ing which prevailed in the Eastern
states concerning many phases of the
Colorado strike. Major Boughton
asked Mr. Lee if he had in mind any
effective way of getting the facts be
fore the public. Mr. Lee suggested
that one method would be for the Gov
ernor to write a letter to the President
of the United States and to his fellow
governors inother states, setting forth
the situation as Governor Ammons
Concrete Suggestions Asked Far,
"Major Boughton said that he could
not tell how the Governor would re
gard such a suggestion, and that even
Major Boughton himself would have to
carry the suggestion to Governor Am
mons, through General Chase, Major
Houghton's superior officer.
"To get the matter into shaDe for
consideration. Major Boughton asked
air. ls io maKe nis suggestion con
crete by preparing a draft of the kind
of a letter which he had in mind. As
a basis for the preparation of this draft
Major Boughton sent Mr. Lee a mem
orandum of his own view of the situa
tion. The memorandum written by me
and referred to in one of my letters
as having been sent by me to Mr. Lee
was nothing more than a rough draft
of a statement concerning the Colorado
situation which I had drawn up, in
answer to statements which had ap
peared in the press but had never been
Ideas Never Reach Governor.
"A copy of-this memorandum, which,
as I wrote to Mr. Lee on June 10, 1914,
was incomplete and only suggestive,
accompanies this statement. When I
learned of Mr. Lee's suggestion to
Major Boughton, It occurred to me that
this memorandum contained material
which Mr. Lee might find helpful in
that connection. Mr. Lee drafted his
Ideas anj sent them to Major Bough
ton, but they were never even submit
ted to General Chase, let alone to the
-Governor. From Governor Ammons'
statement in the morning papers, it Is
obvious that be never knew that euoh
a suggestion had been made."
In this memorandum referred to, Mr.
Rockefeller reviewed the labor situa
tion in Colorado, saying to Mr. Lee that
so much had been written and circu
lated concerning the situation which
was untrue that the public mind was
confused, and that for this reason he
desired to call his (Mr. Lee's) atten
tion to a few of the salient facts.
"Ludlow Massacre" Denied.
Mr, Rockefeller in the memorandum
then says that there was no Ludlow
massacre. "The engagement," he said,
"started as a desperate fijrht for life
by two small squads of militia, num
bering 12 and 22 men respectively,
against the entire tent colony, which
attacked with more than 309 armed
men. There were no women and chil
dren shot by the authorities of the
state or representatives of the operator
in "connection with the Ludlow engage
ment. Not one."
The memorandum then declares that
there was only one child shot in this
engagement and that was by a stray
bullet, and the two women and 11 chil
dren who met their death in a pit un
derneath the floor of one of the tents
were smothered. "While this loss of
life is profoundly to be regretted," the
memorandum continues, "it is unjust
in the extreme to lay at the door of
the defenders of law and property, who
were in no slight way responsible for
The memorandum refers to an article
written by one who visited Colorado,
in which the statement is made, al
leged to have been based on the offi
cial reports of Adjutant-General Chase
to the effect that "an overwhelming
majority. of the state militia were mine
guards and other employes of the coal
companies, who had been enlisted
wholesale, armed and uniformed by the
state and sent out to make war upon
Mine Guards In Militia Few.
"The facts are," the memorandum
continues, "that mine guards were en
listed in only one of the companies of
militia sent to the strike zone. While
it Is true that in this company mine
guards were enlisted as militiamen,
their number in proportion to the total
number of militiamen in the field at
any one time is insignificant.
"It has been charged," adds the
memorandum, "that the employes in the
mines of Colorado are no better than
slaves, oppressed by their employers
and ground down to the last extreme
in order that larger dividends and more
profits may be reaped by the companies.
The utter falsity and Injustice of this
charge are self-evident, insofar as the
Colorado Fuel & Iron Company is con
cerned, with which company alone I
am in any way connected, in view of
the statement which has been widely
published, namely, that during the past
12 years, since our relations to it, that
company has never paid a single cent
on its common stock rand has paid
only one dividend on its preferred
.stock, which waa a portion of the large

if a bill introduced by Assemblyman
Kurtenackar, of La Crosse should pass.
I amends the marriage license law,
cutting out the five days which must
now Intervene between the granting
of a marriage license and the marriage
This law was passed a decade or
more ago, largely on account of the
scandals arising from the wholesale
manner in which marriages were per
formed by Milwaukee ministers on
Sundays, when the . excursion boats
came up from Chicago.
A marriage "while you wait" was the
proper thing in those days. Some of
the more enterprising Justices of the
Peace had eards printed and distrib
uted among passengers on excursion
steamers notifying them that the Jus
tice in question was ready to perform
the marriage ceremony in the shortest
possible time. A dozen marriages on
a Sunday was not uncommon for some
of the better advertised clergymen.
People throughout the state became
aroused and a bill was introduced pro
viding that five days must elapse be
tween the time the marriage license
was taken out and the date of the cere
mony. Provision for emergency cases
was made by a section permitting any
Judge of a court of record to grant a
dispensation under which a marriage
could be performed at once.
The bill was bitterly fought by those
who saw a loss of a considerable part
of their income but the feeling among
the mass of the people was that the
scandalous condition then obtaining
should stop. -

For two days the bear has eluded the

charge the old prices, according to Da
rid Meyer, local sales manager of the
United Cigar Stores Company.
The advanced prices are being
charged in many of the Eastern cities
and a raise is inevitable in the Middle
West and West, Mr. Meyer said. Owing
to the falling off of European custom
ers since the war. the imported Havana
perfectos were reduced from 25 cents to
20 cents. Manufacturers reduced their
forces and overhead expenses by rea
son of the decreased demand, and until
Jit was learned that the. 1915 tobacco

crop had been destroyed by exceaslva
rafn, this price prevailed. Other brantia
were reduced about the same percent
age. With the announcement that vir
tually all the Havana tobacco had been
washed but by rains, the manufacturers
decided that their supply of the leaf
would just about lyil the -demand of
American smokers and the old price is
being asked of retailers. They will
have to pass the increase along to the
consumer as soon as ' their present
stock Is sold out. Previous to the war
about 65 per cent of the Cuban tobacco
waa exported to Europe, Mr. Meyer
The perfecto brands will meet with
the greatest Increase. Other brands
will be advanced from 1 to 4 cents.
