General Baron Tememoto Kuroki,
the great Japanese warrior, who shud
dered not at the terrible battle scenes
in the Japanese-Russian war, shrank
yesterday from the bloody killing
floors at the Union stockyards. It
was at Swift St Co.'s plant that the
Japanese first got his view of the
commercial slaughter of the porkers.
As the stalwart butcher plunged his
knife into the hog's throat, the aged
feneral sprang to one side, deeply ai
ected. General O. E. Wood, of the United
States Army, who was in charge of
tne Japanese visitors, noticed ucnerai
Kuroki's agitation, and, holding up his
hands, gave the signal to go on.
General Kuroki and his party
passed two busy hours in the stock
yards, which closed with a luncheon
at the Saddle and Sirloin Club. Pre
ceding his visit to the packing firm,
General Kuroki paid his respects to
Mayor Dusse at the city hall, smiled
at the unique position in which the
Columbus fountain was "squeezed" up
against the building, and commented
on the beauty of Michigan avenue as
a drive.
At the stockyards the general gazed
with amazement at the droves of cat
tle and watched with undisguised in
terest the Backers of the meat indus
try. He saw the hog-killing at Swift
& Co.'s, the canning at McNeil Si
Libby's, the office and sausage room
of the Nelson Morris plant, and the
killing and dressing of beef in the
wholesale market at Armour's. He
shook hands heartily with the owners
and managers of the different plants,
asked hundreds of questions, and
smiled at the rapidity with which the
cattle passed into the finished product
ready tor shipment. He .was especial
ly interested in the United States
Government inspection of meats, and
the methods of seal-tight packing of
products for shipment to the Orient
Re-count of New York Election.
Albany, N. Y., May 30 The senate
yesterday by a vote of 38 to 8 passed

San Francisco, May 30. Tomorrow
is the day set for the sentencing of
Abraham Rcuf on the charge to which
lie pleaded guilty two weeks ago of
extorting $1,125 from Proprietor Mai-
fanti, of Delmonicos Restaurant, on
a threat to prevent the renewal of
Malfantrs liquor license. Rcuf will
appear, the prosecution will move the
postponement of sentencing, and
Judge Dunne will acquiesce. The
prosecution prefers to delay Reuf's
punishment until after he has ap
peared as a witness.

War Prisoners Free At Last.
Victoria, D. C, May 30. Advices
from Japan state that the crews of the
schooners Taifuku Maru and Taiyo
Maru, seized off Cooper Islands by
Russian cruisers during the war, and
imprisoned at Vladivostok, have been
ration, but Kuroki wore the rcaiiy
valuable emblem.
In the afternoon the general paid
tribute to the memory of Abraham
Lincoln in an impressive way a way
that touched the hearts of the Ameri
cans who witnessed it, and a way tlut
Chicagoans probably will remember
as the one thing more than any other
which gave an insight into the brown,
little, grizzled warrior's character.
M 3 o'clock the party left the Audi
torium Annex in two automobiles,
carrying a wreath of white roses four
feet in diameter. All the way to Lin
coln Park the general was silent, as
if impressed with the importance of
the tribute he was about to pay and
aware apparently of whatever value it
might have as an international episode
of his trip to America. At Lincoln
Park. President Francis I. Simmons,
of the Park Board, met the party, and
at the base of the great St. Gaudens
bronze statue brief speeches were

aided by some ol his omcers, raised
the wreath and placed it revenentiy
on the feet of the statue. Then salu
tations were exchanged all around.
and the visitors departed, cheered by
the crowd.
Another incident was a call made
upon the general early in the morning
by a few baseball enthusiasts. Gen
eral Kuroki, holding a ball in one
hand and a bat in the other, eulogized
the American game, and said he
would boom it in Japan. He. intends
to see the game between the world's
champion White Stockings and the
Dctroits here Saturday.

Peasants Rebel Against Leasing of
Farms for Grazing,
Dublin. May 31. The latest phase
of the land agitation in the congested
districts of Ireland is taking the form
of a crusade against the holders of
grazing farms on the 11 months'
lease system, and is developing with
great rapidity. Kings County and
North Tipperary are the centers of
noting. In bygone days these coun
tries saw many evictions, and today the
peasants are determined that the land
shall be redistributed to small hold
ers. Reports are received daily of the
gathering of large bands of peasants,
who destroy gates and fences and
clear the grazing ranches of cattle,
which they drive back over miles of
country to the farm of the owners.
In two cases men who had leased
ranches were compelled to abandon
their homes because of intimidation.
There have been serious conflicts be
tween the police and peasants, and
many persons on both sides have
been injured. There have been
numerous prosecutions, but the sym
pathy with the peasants is so strong
that in one of two instances even the
magistrates have declined to concur
in the conviction of the disturbers of
the peace, one magistrate even going
so far as to declare himself ready to
go to prison with the defendant.
Capitalists Propose to Establish Big

last evening at a meeting of the Alco
