pears in Controversy Mikado's
Patience Is Exhausted.
Tokio, July 20. The Kokumin. one
of the most influential of the Japanese
newspapers, and which is generally re
garded as the mouthpiece of Marquis
Katsura, the premier, in matters per
taining to the government's policy, in
an article today discussed the situation
between Japan and China and strikes a
somewhat alarmist note.
It was expected, ssys the article,
that the withdrawal of the proposal to
mere to The Hague arbitration tri
bunal the differences between China
and Japan, preceded the adoption of
what was hoped would be a conciliatory
policy by China. But this expectation
has not been realized. China now pro
poses wholly unacceptable terms and
refuses to reply to Japan's request for
reconsideration. The article concludes:
"The Japanese government is exer
cising all possible patience, but is not
carrying its endurance to the point of
sentimentality. Unless China s mood
changes before the conclusion of the
current month, Japan will be obliged
to assume a different attitude.

Pekin Diplomat Sees Deep Meaning
in Crane's Appointment.
Pekin, July 20. The appointment
by President Taft of Charles R. Crane,
of Chicago, a man unknown to the
Eastern world or in diplomatic circles,
to be minister to China, is recognized
in Pekin official quarters as the break'
ing of new ground as well as the roost
striking action with reference to
American representation in China for
the last 50 years.
The Russians and French in the Chi
nese capital have attached special sig
nificance to the transfer of W. W.
Rockhill from Pekin to St Petersburg,
holding it to mean a Russo-Ami-riean
alignment on Chinese affairs.
High Chinese officials declare that
JaDan is China's greatest enemy, but
Great Britain has unofncilaly warned
China that the Anglo-Japanes3 alliance
was never more strong than it is at
present, and has urged that China de
vise amicable relations witn japan.

Report of Court Martial on Adana
Massacres Made Public.
Constantinople, July 20. The report
of the court martial on the Adana mas
sacres, made publio today, is a strong
denunciation of the incapacity and
apathy of the police and other local au

"Fifteen persona already have been

London, July 20. London's naval
pageant, in which 150 warships are
taking part, waa favored toiay by
glorious weather, and is pronounced
an enormous success. It has been as

of its being bottled in by an enemy.

A BRIEF DAILY REPORT ON
THE WORK OF CONGRESS
Tuesday, July 20.
Washington. July 20. Wood pulp,
print paper and lumber, to say nothing
of hides, iron ore and other so-called
raw material, are receiving the most
serious attention from the conferees.
The paper and pulp fight bida fair to
be especially stubborn and probably
will be somewhat prolonged.
Much progress has been made on the
cotton schedule, but hosiery and a
number of other leading items of cot
ton manufacture are causing the tariff
arbitrators much concern. The draw
back provision is practically the only
important administrative feature that
Although the rates of duty have
been fixed on practically all of the
steel product, there has been . a pro
test against the increiaed rate on
structural steel punched lor use. It
was thought that a compromise on lead
and its products was in riew, but this
schedule a'so has proved difficult of
adjustment. The duties on line in
blocks and pigs, which were increased
by the senate over the house rates, is
another matter which is delaying the
settlement of the metals schedule.
Monday, July 19
Washington. July 19. Today the
conferets devoted their attention main
ly to the revised corporation tax pro
vision, which was adopted.
An effort was made today to dispose
of the wood pulp and print paper sched
ule. The retaliatory provision con
cerning pulp was rewritten, and it is
now believed that it will prove satis
factory to American mills. The print
paper schedule is still in controversy.
The only controversy expected on
the cotton schedule relates to hosiery.
Representative Payne stands firmly for
-higher duties and the other house con
ferees are likely to sustain him.
Stturdsy, July 17.
Washington. July 17. The tariff
conferees today settled the question of
giving the secretary of the treasury
authority to issue 50-year 3 per eent
bonds to cover the entire cost of the
Panama canal. The effect of the bond
orovision is to repeal the limit of the
bond authorization of the Spooner act,
although not interfering with 2 per
cent bonds issued under that authority
to the amount of $84,631,980. The
estimated cost of the canal ia $375,
201,000, which will be the figure
named in the new authorization, and
bonds may be issued as they are needed
at the rate of 3 per cent to the extent
There is no doubt that a 1 per cent
Ux on the net earnings of corporations
will be accepted.
Practically the only subject consid
ered during the forenoon session of the
conference was the woolen schedule,
A reduction of 5 per cent was made in
the Dingley rates on women's and
children's dress goods made of cotton
warp. Three changes in the wool
schedule were agreed upon. All of
these were reductions, the lower duty
on women's and children's dress goods
being made on woolen fabrics weigh'
ing four ounces or over to the square
yard and woven into con t ton wark.
reduction of 25 per cent was also made
on yarna valued at 30 cents a pound
Friday, July 16.
Washington, July 16. Twenty four
hours would are the end of the work of
the senate and house conferees on the
tariff bill and a substantial agreement
upon the question at issue but for the
five propositions iron ore. coal, hides,
oil and lumber upon which the presi
dent stands firm for radical reductions
or even abolition of the tariff.
The rates on silks and woolen goods
were determined today. The senate
won on both. On silks there will be
considerable advance over existing du
ties and on woolens there is to be no
change from the present law, except in
regard to wool tops, which are to be
given a new classification. The duty
on tops is prohibitive now, and it is
predicted that it will continue so, evr
after the reduction is put into force.
Thursday, July 15.
Washington, July 15. Questions on
cotton goods and lead product were
Uken up by the tariff conferees today,
Members of the house conference
committee declined to accept the sen'
ate amendments to the cotton schedule
when that subject was Uken up. These
amendments consist chiefly of changes
from nil valorem to specific duties for
the purpose of carrying out the orig
inal intent of the Dingky rates, which
enati conferees assert have been
pulled down by the misinterpretation
of the Dingley law.
Wednesday, July 14.
Washington, July 14. Reports that
there was dissatisfaction in the tariff
conference with the corporation tax
amendment, and that it might be drop
14 iut of the bill reached the ears of
President Taft today. In consequence

Payne were called to the White House.

Taft Favors Canal Bonds
Washington, July 21. At a confer
ence between President Taft, Senator
Aldrich, Chairman Payne and treasury
officials today, it waa decided to aak
congress to authorize a bond issoe to
the extent of the latest estimate of tb
cost of tbo Panama canal, the proposed
issue to bear 3 per cent interest. The

the cost of the canal will be need aa a

articlea such as perfumes and cosmetics
manufactured for the foreign trade was
The real struggle over rates fixed by
the house and senate and which was to
have begun today, was deferred be
cause of the desire to get reports on a
number of subjects which were referred
to subconferees and committees for in
vestigation. In order that no time
should be lost, it waa decided to take
up at once the administrative section
in their order.
When adjornment was taken at 6 :30
o'clock the senate maximum and min
imum provision had been accepted ten
tatively with the exception of the pro
vision for the employment of tariff ex
perts. The house conferees argued
that the ways and meana committee
and the senate finance committee have
the investigation of tariff matters as
their special province.
CRANE IS MINISTER.
Prominent Chlcagoan Accepts Post at
Washington, July 17. Charles R.
Crane, of Chicago, vice president of
the Crane company, has been chosen by
President Taft to represent the United
States as minister to China, succeeding
W. W. Rockhill, who was taken from
China to be ambassador to Russia. It
is understood that Mr. Crane haa an
nounced his willingness to accept, and
that his appointment awaits the ex
change of usual preliminary formali
ties between the two countries.
The Chinese mission, under a policy
with regard to Oriental affairs already
inaugurated by the present administra
tion, will be one of the most important
posts in the diplomatic service. Pres
ident Taft has exoenenced much dim-
culty in finding the right man for the
place. He believes he has just the
person in Mr. Crane, who not only
stands high in the business world, but
has made an exhaustive study of inter

the companies being willing to extend
their lines under the old regulations.
