PANACEA FOR INSURANCE.
Senator Dryden Has Bill That Would
Cure All Ills.
Washington, Jan. 10. Senator Dry
den has revised his bill contemplating
government control of insurance, and
will reintroduce it in tiio eenate today.
He had followed very closely the in
vestigation being conducted by tho
New York legislative committee, and
this has aided him in perfecting his
measure until now ho expresses thp
belief that It will correct practically all
insurance evils exposed by the Now
Publicity in the keynote of the bill,
and coupled with this are safeguards
for the detection of wrongdoing aud the
punishment of those offending. It de
fine policies or insurance contracts as
instrumentalities of commerce, and pro
vides for the regulation of the business
through the medium of a controller of
insurance and along the lines similar
to the control exercised over national
banks. Tho author says he believes
this will go far towards meeting the ob
jection of those who have questioned
the constitutional possibilities of feder
al regulation of insurance.
Tho Benator says the bill has the in
dorsement of the president, administra
tion officials, eminent constitutional
lawyers, in and out of congress, and
others, who are familiar with its gen
eral features,, as coming nearer to meet
ing the demands of the situation than
any of the other numerous pending
measures. Senator Dryden has long
been a champion of federal regulation.

States by Several Million.
Washington, Jan. 10. Tho total

Manchurian Veterans With Heavy Ar
tillery Sent to Capture Well
St. Petersburg, Jan. 10. Though tho
government is reasserting a precarious
authority in tho cities along the rail
roads in the Caucasus, official advices
received today show that the mountain
eers are under arms in large sections of
tho viceroyalty. Tho government of
Kulais la entirely in tho hands of the

and are levying their own import
Tho reduction of tho inaccessible dis
tricts of Gori and Osurgcti, whoBe
mountain strongholds, with their fierce
warriors, havo been the despair of all
conquerors, will involve a campaign of
weeks and oven months, with tho co
operation of mountain artillery, in
comparison with which the operations
in tho Baltic provinces are child's play.
Tho troops in tho Caucasus being
inadequate, tho government has decided
to send there a large force composed of
tho veterans returning from Man
churia, perhaps seven army corps. No
figures regarding tho force now in Man
churia have been given out, but the in
clusion in the budget of an estimate of
$20,000,000 for tho construction of bar
racks for these troops gives some indi
cation of their strength.
Though tho progress of the revolu
tionary propaganda among the troops
has been largely nullified by the events
of December, the "red" leaders are re
nowing their campaign, and are dis
seminating thousands of copies of the
appeals of the Saratoff Peaeant league,
the Union of Liberal leagues, and
other organizations, declaring that the
government has perished by its own
hand, and that the loyal 1 7 of the sold

Gang of Japanese Counterfeiters Is
Captured at Seattle.
Seattle, Jan. 10. Three Japanene
counterfeiters have been placed under
arrest by a eecret service officer, and
hundreds of dollars' worth of spurious
$5 and $10 gold pieces, with parapher
nalia used in their apartments cap
tured. Captain Bell, head of the
Northwest division of the secret ser
vice, has bandied the case, and with
tho arrest of Knichi Fugimodo, in
Port Richmond, Cal., ho stated that
the last of the gang had been rounded
According to Captain Bell, tho case
is unique in tho annals of the Pacific
coast, not only from the wide field of
their operations, but from tho fact that
the batteries and some of the molds
used by tho coiners were made in Japan
and shipped to thiB country.
Since last June more or less spurious
gold coin has been in circulation, and
the secret service men have been work
ing on the case. Although they have
several clewB to tho identity of the
men passing the coins, direct evidence
was unobtainable until December SO,
when Officer Pi'kina, in Taconia, arreat
ed S. Sunado for paas'ng a counterfeit
$5 gold coin in the Marconi saloon.
Worked Soldiers to Get Land.
Omaha, Jan. 10. The trial of Rev.
George G. Ware, president of the U. B.
I. Cattle company, charged with con
spiracy to defraud the government of

co-conspirators, confirmed previous tes
timony to the effect that he induced
about 20 inmates of tho Soldiers'
Homo to file on homesteads and give
09-ycar leases to tho U. B. I. company.
Lambert Bald he paid them $150 each
and received from Mr. Ware $50 for

The exact dato of tho conference has
not been fixed. Probably it will be

aftor the national convention of tho
United Minoworkers. Tho object of
tho conference will be to establish a
wage scale for tho next threo years.
Yaqui Stories Bring Retaliation.
HI raso, Tex., Jan. 10. Because of
the Blander of foreigners who alleged
they had not been givon proper protec

Sonora and Lowor California, and,
owing to tho circulation of such stories,
the Mexican government has issued an
order forbidding mining agenta in those
states to allow foreigners to file mining
claims. ThiB Ib tho outgrowth of tho
circulation of alleged Yaqui stories in
tho United States by prospectors.

"Washington, Jan, 10. Lieutenant
General Chaffeo today tendered his res

Senator Piles, of Washington, Will In
troduce Such a Bill.
Seattle, Wash., Jan. 15. United
States Senator S. II. Piles will intro
duce in congress a bill appropriating
tho $20,000,000 paid this country by
China as damages in the Boxer upris
ing toMefray the expenses of Chinese
students to be educated in Amorican
colleges. A part of this sum, it ia pro-'
posed, shall bo expended in schools
conducted by Americans in China.
A bill prepared under tho direction
of tho faculty of the University of
Washington has been forwarded to Sen
ator Plica, and tho co-operation of coast
educational institutions has been asked
in tho campaign. Out of this move
ment, it is believed, will grow some
thing satisfactory to China, and result
ing in abandoning the boycott against
Tho measuro was agreed uopn at a
meeting of tho faculty of the Universi
ty of Washington, with A. W. Bash,
promoter of tho Canton-Hankow and
other Chinese railroads, and an inti
mate friend of many high Chinese offi
cials, and Dr. W. A. P. Martin, an ed
ucator long employed in Chinese
schools, who came West to welcome
the high commission just landed at San
Francisco. Mr. Bash has been official
ly designated by President Roosevelt
and Secretary of State Root. Mr. Bash
started the movement on the coast be
cause he has been a resident here, and
because he believes the Pacific Coast
states originating the movement would
Btrengthen tho fight. For that reason
the co-operation of Oregon and Cali
fornia educators-was asked.
Under the plan adopted here, tho in
demnity monoy would be Bpent: First,
io invite Chinese etudentj to the Unit
ed States and provide for their educa
tion in this country; second, to aid
worthy American colleges already es
tablished in China; third, to provide
for helping Chinese students at the
American consulates in China.
NEWS OF THE WEEK
COMBINE FOR COLONIZING.
Western Railroads Establish Bureau
for Handling Business.
Chicago, Jan 15. General passenger
agentB of Western lines, after three
daya of almost continuous discussion,
havo agreed upon a plan for tho organi
zation oi a general colonization bureau
to handle the details of the issuance of
certificates and tickets for land and im
Reports from those who attended the
Western Passenger Association meetings
during the debates on this proposition
indicate that there were some repre
sentatives of railroads in the conference
who were in favor of abolishing the
privileges the colonization departments
have found bo valuable in building up
communities along the railroads.
"We wero fearful," eaid a passenger
agent of one Western road, "that the
issuance of certificates would bo abro
gated and that every Western state's
development would be materially affect
ed by the shutting off of the bomeseek
ers' colonization certificate provisions."
According to one ot the passenger
agents, the bureau will handle the col
onization business for all the roads in
tho Weatern Paesenger association, and
there will be no diminuation in the
volume of businees.

Mr. Shaw agreed to do bo. More than
a year ago Mr. Shaw let it be known
that he expected to retire from tho
cabinet in February of this year. The

a few weeks ago, and then he lost no
