Vast Numbers of Japanese Pouring

It is known that rnoro tliari double

adopted by tho government to provont
the introduction of Japunoso laborers.
For many months tho govornmont
has had immigration commissioners in
Moxico and Canada. In practically
ovory instance, the inspectors have ro
portod that tho Japanese who roach
Canada or Moxico are bound for tho

Roosevelt has now personal experience
regarding tho shallowness of tho Mist

becanso tho good steamer Mississippi is
of tlio flat bottom variety common on

stated, was familiar with tho location
of a largo number of tho obstructions

Ford Trial In San Francisco Must Be
San Francisco, Oct. 7. Tho jury
which tried ex-Attorney General Tirey
L. Ford, general counsel for tlvo United
Railroads, on tho folony charge of brib
ing Supervisor Thomas F. Lonorgan in
tlio sum of $4,000 to vote for tho trolley
franchise in Juno, .1900, voted eight
for acquittal and four for conviction and
was discharged by Judgo Lawlor, after
having been out 18 hours.
Judge Lawlor informed, coufiserthut
tho regulactrial jury box -having ben
exhausted in tho trial of Ford, ho will
organize a panel of several hundred'
talesmen to sorvo for all cases coming
before his department of tho court.
This has tho effect of doing away
with the likelihood of special venires.
As Ford is under heavy bond on the
other indictments returned against him,
ho was given his freedom and will not
bo required to furnish fresh bonds in
the present case until today. The case

CANCER CONTAGIOUS DISEASE.
Evidence That Germs Remain in Walls
for Many Years.
Paris, Oct. 7. Are certain houses in
fected with cancer? Are rooms Inhab
ited by cancer patients liable to convey
tho disease years after the patient is
dead? According to the researches of
some doctors, the results of which havo
just been published, these questions
must be answered in tho affirmative.
Tho strange coincidence had often been
observed and pointed out by practition
ers, even so far back aB 20 and 30 years
ago. A patient would die of cancer in
a certain house. A year afterwards, or
even longer, other persons come to Jive
in the same houso, and suddenly some
member of the family is afflicted with
tho terrible disease. For years and
years tho same phenomenon recurs.
One family removes after ono or more
of its membera has succumbed to the
illness, others succeed them, and be
come in turn victims of the same fatal
affecMon The observations have been
so frequent that the sanitary authori
ties in Paris have decided to study tho
matter thoroughly. A census has been
taken of all the houses where cancer
natlonts died during the last six months
of the year 1900, and a careful watch
will be kept over these houses. The
list comprises 1,002 cases, and out of
these it has already been observed that
in 12 houses two successive cosee oc
curred, not counting five old age asy
lums, where 20 deaths occurred from
tho same disease.
MORE JAPANESE THAN EVER.
President's Proclamation Does Not
Have Desired Effect.
Washington, Oct. 7. The proclama
tion of the president, issued March 14.
1907, has not operated to retard the
immigration of Japanese into the
United Stales, as waa expected. On
the contrary, the influx of Japanese haB
been greater since tho issuance of tho
proclamation than before. The annual
report of Commissioner General Sar
gent, of the bureau of immigration,
will show that during the fiscal year
ended June 30, 1907, 30,824 Japanese
entered the United States, and of that
total 10,091 came in during March,
April, Hay and June. Tills shows that
tho influx has been greater since the
proclamation than before.
The president's proclamation was not
intended to bo a liar to all Japanese,
but only thoso of tho laboring classes
the coolies. Yet it iB not reasonable to
euppose that all the Japanese who came
into the United States since March 14
havo been of tho educated classes; those
prepared to engage in some profession.
Tho investigations of the bureau of im
migration show that fully 50 per cent
of those coming hero have taken up
some manual occupation.
In addition to the Japanese shown
on tho returns of tho immigration bu
reau, it is supposed that not a few
gained unlawful access to this country
through Moxico and Canada, but this
number will be reduced if Canada en
forces its law prohibiting tho admission
into that country of Japanese who do
not bear passports.
Send Poor Hindus Back.
Vancouver, B. O., Oct. 7. It is pos
sible that a largo majority of tho 500
Hindus who will arrive from tho Ori
ent tomorrow by the Bteamor Tartar
will bo immediately deported. They
will if they have no more money to
show than those who arrived a month
ago. Dr. Munro, immigration health
inspector, today received special in
structions from Ottawa that if any of
the now arrivals woro likely to become
charges on tho publio they Bhould bo
deported at once. Dr. Munro declares
that ho interprets this liberally.
Corruption in Chicago.
Chicago, Oct. 7. A grand jury In
quiry into tho operations of an alleged
combination of gamblers resulted in tho
roport this aftornoon involving bribery,
corruption and incompetency on tho
part of certain polico and city officials.
Tlio jury recommended that tho portion
of tho polico forco that had boon in
ohargo of tho prosecution of gamblors

sible for tho laxity and corruption bo

JURORS WERE FIXED
Serious Charge In Ford Trial at
SPECIAL JURY TO INVESTIGATE
Detective Burns Says Honest Jury
Will Convict Ford and Sen
sation is Promised.
San Francisco, Oct. 8. The grand
jury will meet today to invbetigate tho
charges that have been freely made that
improper influences wero used upon
certain members of the jury that tried
Tirey L. Ford. It is hinted tbat-o sen
sation will be sprung before the matter
i'b dropped. Special Agent Burba re
fused to makcany" specific chargos to
day, but said:
"Ford will bo found guilty by an
honest jury.' .
Earl RogerB, chief of counsel defend
ing Ford, came back with a charge that
the prosecution hatt mado efforts to get
friends on the jury Mr. Rogers cornea
from the southern part of the state,
whcre he is known as "tho .fighting at
torney of Los Angeles." Mr. Butna
eaya.he will call the bluff and will give
Mr. Tlogers a chance to go before tho
grand jury i
Francis J. Heneyis oot of the city,
on an automobile -trip. He will return
in time to conduct th'e investigation bo
fore the grand .jury. He is absolutely
unmoved by the" failure pi the Ford jury
to agree and will place Ford on trial
again next Monday. After the trial of
Ford the prosecution will tnrn;its atten
tion to Patrick Calhoun. ,
The jurorB in the Ford case who stood
for acquittal have stated? in interviews
that the failure of the prosecution to
call Abe Ruef to the stand influenced
them more than anything else in their
decision. The failure of the prosecu
tion to call Ruef to the starid has com
pletely mystified tho defense. Ford'a
attorneys will therefore be as much in
the dark as to the plans of the prosecu
tion in tho next trialaa they were in
The expanation given the widest cre
dence for the failure of Mr. Heney to
call Ruef to the stand is that the proe
ecutora had a "tip" that the jury bad
been tampered with, and did not desire
to reveal any more evidence at this
trial than was neceeBary to prevent an
TWO MORE INDICTMENTS.
Jury Returns Charges Against South
ern Pacific, Pacific Mail.
San Francieco, Oct. 8. The United
States grand jury today presented two
supplementary indictments, one against
the Southern Pacific company, and tho
other against the Pacific Mail Steam
ship company, charging them with vio-
lationa of the interstate commerce law.
Each'mdictment contains eight counts,
which relate to shipments of matting
from Kobe, Japan, to various points in
the United States at rates lower than
those mentioned in the schedule fur

The Southern Pacific and the Pacific
Mail Steamship company were allowed
until October 21 to plead to the former,
