ticles froniFair Japan at small cost.
iWorth of the finest goods known in Japan were sent to
the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition for exhibi
tion purposes. This magnificent collection is the best
product of over 200 manufacturers, artists and curio col
lectors, and is now displayed in the Oriental Building at
Not more than one-half of this superb exhibit has
been disposed of, and father than reship these beautiful
wares and manufactures to Japan, many of the exhibit
ors are willing to
Sacrifice Their Exhibits
Some are willing to accept the cost price in Japan. This
would 'be a mere pittance as compared to the selling price
in the art emporiums and dry goods storesvand bazars
of America. It inqans a rar bargain at about 25 per cent
of the old selling price. The exhibitors believe that the
distribution, of these beautiful goods and art works on
the Pacific Coast will prove a valuable Advertisement for
the home market. In order that this beneficent result
may be secured for local connoisseurs and all others in
terested, a number "of .
Prominent and Influential Citizens -
Qf Oregon and Washington have taken advantage of the
situation and organized a

HINDER IS DISQUALIFIED.
Minnesota's Captain Owed Allegi
ance to Two Countries.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30. Captain
John K. Hinder, of tha Minnesota, will
have to vacate his citizen a papers, .ac
cording- to a report on his case on the
way to "Washington from Secret Service
Agent John H. Helms. The investlga
tion prosecuted by Helms developed the
fact ,that after captain Kinder had
taken out his first intention papers, in
1887, he went back to his native land.
England, and entered service as a sub
lieutenant In the Royal Naval Reserves,
This was done in 1891 and vitiated his
citizenship candidacy, begun in 1887.
The report of the Secret Service Bureau
also alleges that Captain Rlnder did
not sever his connection with the Eng
lish reserves antll the very day he be
came a full-fledged citizen of the United
States. He appeared 1n the Superior
Court in this city on October2, 1803,
aria ' was naturalized; thejt''.he wrote
out his resignation as a "British ocer
and sent it "by mail to'the -Keglatra. of
Shipping at Idndon. it 'was not unill
November 19 of he same year that he
received notification 'from that source
that his resignation had been accepted.
According to this, Captain Rlnder was
for one month both a British Lieuten
ant and an American citizen.
He was born In Lincolnshire, Eng
land in 1S59, and was in service on
English vessels from the time he was
old enough to ship until 1903. While
serving on the White 8tar Line, from
New York to England, he received his
appointment as Sublieutenant in the
Royal Naval Reserves. He was pro
moted to the rank of Lieutenant in
1896, or nine years after he had taken
his first steps to citizenship in the
United StateB. Besides Captain Hinder,
there were 21 other cases of fraudu
lent citizenship disposed of today by
Secret Service Agent Helms. Twenty
one bogus papers were taken to the Su
perior Court and declared void.
