Seizure of Chinese Territory Does Not

LOCALITY IS MOST ROMANTIC
Tien-Tsin, With Practically no Trade,
Develops Tremendously Under
Influence of Foreigners.
Washington, D. C. Seizure by
French troops of an additional square
mile of territory contiguous to the
French concessions in Tien-tsin, in de
fiance of the Chinese foreign office,
just reported In cable dispatches from
Pekin, brings to the front one of the
most complicated and most romantic
points of conflict between old China
and the Western world.
Officials here indicated Monday that
as an international affair little import
ance was attached to France s action.
Tien-Btin, back in the days when
foreign ambassadors sought admission
to China in vain, merely was a small,
dirty town, with practically no trade.
In 1860, after the British and
French had forced their way over the
Taku forts and humbled the Manchus
at Pekin, the right of residence was
granted to the subjects of the two

arrangement in 1861. Separate sec
tions for the four nationalities were
set aside and small local centers of
residence and trade grew up. In a
few years, however, the American
government abandoned its settlement,
first, because it had no use for it, and
no .money to pay for it, and, second,
because, under the conditions it had
become known as the "middle king
dom" between the German and British
concessions, where all sorts of lawless

German Airman Shot Down in
Sunday Raid en British Coast
London A hostile aeroplane ap
peared Sunday over the fortified sea
port of Sheerness, at the mouth of the
Thames. Four bombs were dropped.
No casualties have been reported offi
cially. An official communication issued
"A hostile seaplane was shot down
and destroyed Sunday afternoon by one
of our naval aircraft. The machine
fell into the sea. Judging by .the time,
it probably was the seaplane which
visited Sheerness Sunday."
The following official accouut of the
attack was given out :
"A hostile aeroplane approached
Sheerness at about 1 :45 p. m. Sunday,
flying very high. Four bombs were
dropped, three of which fell into the
harbor. The fourth fell in the vicin
ity of a railway station and damaged
several railway carriages.
"British aeroplanes went up and the
raider made off in a northeasterly di
rection. No casualties have been re
Armed Steamer Delayed.
Philadelphia The departure of the
British steamship Missouri from this
port to Baltimore was delayed Monday
owing to the fact that the vessel, be
ing engaged in a coastwise trip, car
ried a gun on her after deck. Clear
ance papers which were held up on
orders from the Treasury department
at Washington, were later granted
when formal assurances that the vessel
was armed for defense purposes only
were made to the State department.
The Missouri arrived at this port from
London, carrying merchandise.
Unfair Election Charged.
Managua, Nicaragua Reprenenta
tives of the Liberal party have sent a
protest to President Wilson against the
recent elections, in which General
Emiliano Chamorro was elected presi
dent of the republic, accusing Presi
dent Adolfo Diaz of not complying
with his promise to permit an abso
lutely fair ballot. The protest says
also that the American minister, Ben
jamin L. Jefferson, imposed on the
Liberals conditions which amounted to
the exclusion of the party from the
participation in the government.
Sheriff Sent to Jail.
Columbus, O. Sheriff Alonzo T.
Swepston, of Ross county, vice presi
dent of the American Sheriffs' associa
tion and president of the Ohio Sheriffs'
association, was sentenced to 40 days
in the Delaware county jail by United
States Judge John E. Sater here for
permitting federal prisoners in his
custody to take long automobile rides
and have other liberties, tie was re
leased on $500 bond pending a hearing
of the case on error.

GREAT INFLUX OF GOLD PROMOTES
EXTRAVAGANCE BY AMERICAN PEOPLE
Chicago There is a marked contrast
between the tendency of the American
people and those of the Old World at
this time in the matter of thrift. In
America business has been bo active
and profits in many instances so large
that the American people appear to be
spending money in a reckless manner
and to'be indulging in extravagances,
which, a few years ago, would have
The whole world is spending money
recklessly, but across the Atlantic the
expenditures are confined chiefly to
governmental agencies, while the peo
ple are paying the bills. It is this
supply of money that has forced in
vestors to dig deep into their strong
boxes and bring forth certificates of
American investment-bearing dates of

inpouring of foreign trade, together

Three New Generals.
Generals Francis H. French, Chas.
G. Treat, Eben Swift.
The American army, which has the
best educated officers in the world
(with the possible ecxeption cf the
German army), now has three new
generals. Colonel Francis H. French
of the Twenty-first infantry, has been
promoted and will succeed General
Granger Adams as chairman of the
board to investigate rapid-fire guns, pf
which the United States will purchase
$12,000,000 worth. Colonel Eben

There is a tendency abroad, how

Railroads Are Helpless.
Washington, D. C The Interstate
Commerce commission made public
Monday a report of its inspectors on
the car famine in Nebraska, saying
that the railroads are furnishing all
the cars they can supply to meet an
unprecedented demand, but that it is
impossible for them to furnish a suffi
cient number under the circumstances.
The only way the situation can be im
proved is to provide considerable loco
motive and car equipment and to in
crease the capacity of railroad facili
ties by several hundred per cent.
Bias Charged by German.
San Francisco Franz Bopp, consul
general for Germany in this city, asked
the United States District court here
in an affidavit read by his attorney to
take judicial notice of alleged prejudice
against and antipathy toward German
consular representatives in the United
States, due apparently to the European
war. The affidavit was offered during
argument of a motion to consolidate for
trial several of the Federal grand jury
indictments against Bopp and others
on charges of conspiracy. The de
fense demanded separate trials.

Wheat Sets New High Record.
The 7-cent bulge in the Chicago
wheat market this week met with a
quick response in the northwest High
er bids were at once sent Into the
country and the scramble to buy be
gan. Details were lacking as to the
amount of business done, but it was
bellevedTthat well over 1,000,000 bush
els changed hands.
The advance put bluestera 3 to 4
cents above the high point reached
just before the submarine raid and
raised the cheaper grades of wheat to
the level that prevailed then. Blue
stem sold locally at $1.42 and there
was considerable buying In the Inter
ior on the basis of $1.43 Coast, with
reports of as high as $1.45 also paid.
At the Merchants' Exchange five
thousand bushols of November blue-
stem were sold at $1.42. fortyfold and
club bids were raised 2 tu 3 cents, fife
3 cents and red Russian 3 to 4 cents.
The Chicago advance was ascribed
to short covering, following recent
heavy sales to foreigners. More dis
astrous reports from Argentina and
increased demand from the British and
French governments for North Amer
ican wheat accompanied the rise. It
was said that of the Canadian crop,
25 to 30 per cent has been found to be
unfit for milling.
The local oats market also gained
in strength. Bids for all deliveries
were advanced 75 cents at the ex
change. Brewing barley was unchang
ed in the country, but feed barley" was
quoted $1 higher here.
Local millers announced a 20-cent
advance In patent and valley flours,
