In Mr. Porter's Judgment, China, with

America, he declared, does not desire
to be drawn Into the ally of Asiatic

written a letter to J. T. Morgan, cor

Baptist Home Mission Society, In which
conditions In Porto Rico and the re

He says that the number of persons

TACOMA, Sept. 27. Passengers on

tell of the arrest of 380 beach miners
on complaint of a company which
claimed the strip of land on which
they were working.
They were soon released, however,
by oider of the captain of the revenue
favorable there will be 2.000,000 visitors
hore on Friday and Saturday.
All available passenger equipment of
the various railroads Is being concen
trated at the most advantageous ter
mini for bringing crowds into New
Yo'K. The greyest Inward movement
Is expected on Thursday night.
All the roads have been running
about two-thirds of their capacity for
the last week. Railroad men them
selves express astonishment at the
great advance movement toward New
York. Low rates do not go into ef
fect until Thursday, so their induce
ment has not brought the thousands
who have come so far In advance of
the reception ceremonies. It shows,
too, the railroad men say, that the vis
itors who are now coming to New
York have plenty of money to spend.
The railroads will make no reduction
even 'ifter Thurxday for points within
a radius of 100 miles of New York. The,
rate after Thursday for points beyond
that radius will be one and one-third
fare for the round trip.
Officials of the Metropolitan system
said that traffic figures turned In In

ably one million visitors In the city.
President Vreeland said there would
be double the number on Friday and
