"This ia not tho first tlmo that n do

WILL IMPORT CIIINUSG.
South American Mlneownera Expect to
Override Popular Prejudice.
London, May 10. Tho importation
of ChinMo labor into Routh Africa was
decided upon in principal some time
ago, but no doflnlto plans have yet been
found regarding tho number to be im
ported not the conditions to govern the
Colonial Secretary Chamberlain and
the big firms of the Rand are in Agree
ment that no othor solution of tho labor
difficulty is possible At preient half
the stamp at tho mine are idle becauso
only 60,000 Kaffirs are procurable,
when 160,000 men aro required. As a
consequence, tho conditions at Johan
nesburg aro daily growing worso and
business is slack. White laboro a
flocked thore at the close of the war,
but they wero nnablo to find satisfactory
employment, and discontent is rife.
This suits the Rand magnates, who
are loth lo accept tho role responsibili
ty for introducing yellow labor, nnd
hop that tho prevailing paralysis of
trado will toon load to a popular de
mand for tho importation of even tho
"hated ChiutM," so that tho mines
may bo net working at their full capac
ity, with a consequent revival of busi
ness depending thereon. Up lo the
present, however, the trading popula
tion of Bouth Africa Is bitterly opposed
to tho Importation of Chi new.
PALMA WILL AID TRUATIP.S.

Havana, May 10. President Pal ma
today assured tho correspondent of tho
Associated Press that understandings
would bo reached on all Uie treaties be
tween tho Unitod States and Cuba, and
that tho signing of them will follow
shortly. Ho also ;ald ho would do all
ho pofsibly could to secure their ratifi
cation during tho present session of the
congress of Cuba, but it s generally
believed that tho reluctance of senators
to conclude further treaties beforo tho
reciprocity question is settled makes it
doubtful whethor the naval stations
can be occupied tieforo another roar.
The order of signing tho treaties will
be: First, tho Piatt amendment; sec

SOUTH CHINA IN DANQER.
France Said to De Planning Coup While
Attention Is Distracted to North.
Victoria, B. 0., May 22. Alfred
Cunningham manager of tho Hong
Kong Daily Press, a passenger on the
Knza Maru, which anived last night,
said in an interview hero that Japanese
Jonrnullsts do not regard Russia's action
in Manchuria as surprising cr unantici
pated. Mr. Cunningham eays that
whilu attention is being maintained in
the north by Russian aggrossion, a mat
ter of far greater importance to Ameri
ca, Dritaln and Japan is being over
looked In tlio south; that is the aggres
sion of Franco in the Southern prov
inces. Mr. Cunningham is of tho opinion
that Franco and Russia aro acting in
concert, tho former in tho north and
the latter in tho south. He says
Franco has bribed tho officials of
Kwangsi and is waiting the opportunity
to pour troops into that province. Tho
south, said Mr. Cunningham, is now
on tlio verge of a far greater interna
tional crisis than that now on in the
north. At present the rebellion In
Kwangsi is practically brigandage on a

quantities of arms are being shipped
in to the rebels, chiefly from the United
States, and headed by tho reformers a
