Eequesting Help.
In Presence of Americans, Mili

Against English Subjects.
WASHINGTON", D. C, Aug. 21.
(By the Associated Press.) Smug
gling of aliens into the United States,
particularly Chinese from Cuba, con
stitutes one of the most serious
problems before the department of
labor. Secretary of Davis declared
today in commenting upon the ef
forts being made to obtain closer
co-operation between the Cuban
government and the United States.
The secretary was hopeful, he
said, that negotiations between the
state department and Cuba would
tend to remove eoroe of the obstacles
confronted by the immigration au
thorities of the labor department in
dealing -with smuggling operations.
No Reply Received.
It developed today that negotia
tions began in October last, when
Secretary Hughes asked the Cuban
legation here to call certain fea
tures of the situation to the atten
tion of officials in Havana. Since
then the legation has sent several
other inquiries to its home govern
ment, but has received no formal
reply to the American representa-lions.
The latest phase of the problem
is understood to have resulted from
a letter written to Secretary
Hughes by Secretary Davis on
. August 3 stating that the labor de
partment "has deemed it proper as
well as advisable to present this
matter (smuggling of Chinese from
Cuba into the United States) for
the consideration of your depart
ment with the request that if you
approve of that course the American
minister at Havana, or other proper
representatives of this government,
make appropriate representations to
the -government of Cuba with the
object in view of ascertaining if
restrictions of a character which
will serve materially to check the
movement to that country of aliens
of the Chinese race may not be im
posed under the lawa of that coun
try." Cuban Aid SuiicrHted.
Mr. Davis also suggested that the
Cuban government may be able to
devise some plan whereby the de
parture from ports of Cuba of craft
engaged in the smuggling of aliens
to our coast and who are not, or
may not, materially be checked. He
said his department was "very
gravely concerned over the situation
which now prevails on our southern
Atlantic and gulf coasts growing
out of smuggling over from Cuba
of aliens in large numbers." and
explained that "it seems to be the
generally accepted view of persons
in touch with the situation that
virtually the entire present Chinese
population of Cuba (except, of
course, those who are engaged in
business here) have the one thought
uppermost in mind of gaining entry
to the United States, which entry
must necessarily be accomplished by
unlawful means.
Secretary Davis declared the labor
department "recently had a rather
extensive investigation made into
smuggling matters on the Florida

Mexican Randits Plunder Settlers
I'pon Isle of Palms.
ALBAXT, Or., Aug. 21. (Special.)
Oregonians at Palmita, on the Isle
of Palms, near the west coast of
Mexico, where a colony from the
Willamette valley settled last
spring, are being guarded by 45
Mexican soldiers. This guard was
stationed there following bandit
raids in which all of the canned
fruits, clothes and bedclothing were
taken from their hacienda, it is
learned here from a letter written
by Mrs. Derriil Austin to friends.
The Austins are ex-residents of this
All the firearms belonging to this
family "and others were taken by
armed bandits, who rode up three
weeks ago and first were taken for
soldiers by the colonists.
The household effects were taken
from the Austin hacienda while they
were moving to that of the Horn
backs, also ex-residents of Albany.
An American named Hill is re
ported to have been shot dead from
behind recently by a Mexican la
borer, who was captured by soldiers
and executed at sunrise shortly
afterward at Escuinapa.
In spite of soldier protection "by
the government, many Americans
have left or are now preparing to
return to the United States, the let

PEKIN, Aug. 21. A strong re
sentment is arising against the Chi
nese negotiations with the soviet
envoy, M. Joffe, who, with an en
tourage of 24, is suspected of seek
ing to' spread bolshevik doctrines,
and attention is called to the fact
that he was expelled from Germany
for like conduct.
The action of the red government
in Mongolia in deciding tp issue dol
lar currency indicates its intention
to enforce worthless paper. M.
Joffe assertshe has come to estab
lish cordial relations with China,
and not to impose communistic
views, but suspicion was aroused
by his speech at the dinner accorded
by Chinese journalists, wherein he
said that Russia and other weak
nations must unite to block imper
ialism, adding: "Although the Mon
golian question is inseparable from
other questions, Russia will be
pleased to withdraw her troops
wnen tne proper moment in tne in
terest of the whole Chinese nation
really comes."
The Chinese are doubly alarmed
over M. Joffe since Sun Yat Sen's
presence in Shanghai coincides with
a renewed fomenting of labor agi-1
tation somewhat akin to Bolshevism, I
causing a section of the British
press to urge Sun Yat Sen s expul
sion from the foreign settlements.

Englishwomen Appear In Streets
With Strange Companions.
LONDON, Aug. 21. The place long
held by the dog as a fanfily pet and
street companion threatens to be
usurped by the monkey and other
exotic creatures. Women are seen
carrying marmosets, mongooses,
foxes and parrots.
People also are getting accus
tomed to the woman with a young
white fox on a string, another with
three cats and the chimpanzee that
rides in a motor car.
But the most startling innovation
in family pets was observed at a
lawn party where a guest carried
what appeared to be a sunshade
with a highly decorative handle.
Closer inspection revealed the "han

taken to mean that he referred to
the United States.
France will not consent to a
moratorium of any character to Ger
many unless the German state
mines of the Ruhr and the national
forests are placed in the hands of
the allies as a guarantee, and no
matter what happens Prance will
not depart from this policy, said the
Obligations Must Be Met.
"The day Germany recognizes
loyally her - obligations toward
France and carries them out with
good grace," declared M. Poincare,
"we will not refuse to examine with
her the best methods of assuring
the prompt a-nd regular execution
of the treaty of Varsailles.
"Contrary to certain British
spokesmen," continued the head of
the French cabinet, "we are neither
Neros nor even Bismarcks. We are
simply a good people wtio were
brutally attacked and whose native
soil was ravaged. All we ask is the
opportunity to continue in peace our
daily tasks.
"We are greatly disposed to aid
other nations in the effort to restore
the world. We know the world does
not end at our frontiers. We wel
come a broad and generous Euro
pean policy. We fervently desire
to remain allies of our allies and
friends of our friends. . We ask
nothing better than to resume with
our enemies of yesterday pleasant
and courteous relations. But we
wish to have our ruins repaired
and they will be.
"If, contrary to our desires, we are
forced to take independent action
without the approval of our allies,"
he continued, "we shall make no ef
fort to retain indefinitely the guar
antees which we may take. We
shall guard these guarantees in the
interest of all and only until Ger
many consents to meet her just obli
gations." Action Held Imperative.
The premier added that the
French government knew the best
guarantees now contemplated would
not quickly fill the French treas
ury, but action was necessary to
enforce justice.
He compared the relative policies
of France and Great Britain, as
serting that the execution of the
treaty and the payment of repara
tions were vital to France, while
England, finding her industries
paralyzed and her people out of
employment, was obsessed with re
gaining her markets.
"They follow their road and we
follow ours," he continued, "and it
is not surprising that we draw
apart at times. It is very natural I
and inevitable, and I ' am neither
scandalized nor astonished. What
I cannot understand, however, is
why compromises always are made
at the expense of France."
"England," he declared, "whose
intentions always have been re
garded aa friendly, does not realize
the gravity of the French financial
situation and the all-important in
terest which France has in the
rapid collection of reparations."

TOKIO, July 31. (Correspondence

Viscount Ishii, ambassador to
France, has been granted a furlough
and is coming home and his friends
have him slated for the post of for

expected to return to Paris.
Baron Hayashl, ambassador to
England, also will return home as
soon as the Washington treaties
have been ratified by King George.
He likewise is not likely to return
to London, according to reports.
These changes may be due to the
fact that Baron Kato, the prem'.er
backed by the experience he gained
at Washington, like Lloyd George in
England, has assumed control of the
foreign policy of the country to a
greater extent than most previous
premiers. This is not altogether to
the liking of the old diplomats who
fear that after Baron Kato hands
over the navy department to some
new minister yet to be elected, he
will take an even greater share in
the direction of the foreign office.
Admiral-Ide, vice-minister of the
navy, who was to succeed Baron
Kato as minister to that depart
ment, has been forced . to decline
owing to ill health.

Recent Manifesto Flatly Indorsed
by North China Leader.
SHANGHAI, Aug. 21. (By the As
sociated Press.) Sun Yat-Sen, de
posed president of south China, who
recently fled here from Canton
leaped to the front today as a piv
otal figure in the reorganization of
the Chinese government, with re
ceipt of a telegram from Wu Pei
Fu, dominant military figure of
north China, flatly indorsing Sun's
recent manifesto and pledging his
support to Sun's policy for rebuild
ing the federal government machin
ery. The southern leader, who Pekin
authorities recently declared had
been wiped from the slate of Chi
nese politics by his overthrow at
Canton at the hands of Chan
Chiung-Ming, has become the local
point of a series of inter-factional
conferences here, which, his , sup
porters say, points to an early set
tlement of the country's problems.
Despite the fact that Sun Yat-Sen
backed Chang Tso-Lin, governor of
the three eastern provinces, in his
late unsuccessful tilt against Wu
Pei-Fu, the latter's telegram today,
addressed to his personal repre
sentative here, General Sun Yueh,
expresses unqualified indorsement
of Sun Yat-Sen's policies.
They include the southerner's
terms for the convocation and func
tioning of parliament free from all
outside interests, self-government
for the provinces to replace the
tuchun, or military governorship
system, and the conversion of the
independent provincial armies into
labor battalions to wield the hoe
instead of the sword.
