Mexico City, July 16. Nino thou
sand veteran Japanese soldiers aro now
hi Northwestern Mexico. They nro sta
tioned at points In the states of Bonorn,
Hinoloa and Chihuahua. Kach group
Is commanded by skilled commanders,
who saw service in tho Itusso-Japanoso
war. Thirty thousand Japanese, the
vast majority of whom are veterans of
tho Kusslsn campaigns, sre in the
southwestern section ci the United
States and Lower California. Three
Japanese generals whe held high rank
In tho Russo-Japanese war have been
In Mexico for three months. They

ostensibly buying land.
The Trans-Occanlo Immigration com

government to bring Japanese roldleia
to Mexico. Thoy have been coming in
to Mexico at the rate of 600 per month,
landing at ballna Cruz, Manzanillo and
otlier Pacific ports.
In case of war, the plan Is for the
Japanese fleet to sail into the Gulf of
California, canture the port ot Guar
runs, and uio the state of Bonora ai a
Ijaso of operations In a campaign agalnt
tho United States. The plan would
practically duplicate tho operations

States, will despoil Mexican territory,
which lias no navy, Just as she did that

by Speech on Alaska.
Seattlo, Wash., July 16. Federal
Judgo Jamos Wlckorsham, ot Alaska,
speaking before tho State Bar associa
tion, cieated a icnsatton by declaring
that ho was tired of acting as tho gov
ernment of Alaska, and that the bar
ot the state must whip the congres
sional delegation into lino to grant
somo power to the people ot Alaska.
His speech overshadowed that of Vlco
President Fairbanks in Importance, for
he Insisted that the only authority ot
any kind in Alaska is that of the Judi
ciary and the governor is a mere figure
head with only authority to appoint a
privato secretary and notaries public.
Ho denounced beattle lor oulet.y en-
Joying a $20,000,000 annual trade with
Alaska and musing to aid Alaskans in

Shortly after 4 o'clock the procession

and bluejackets and followed by tho
vlco president and the other guests of
the city in automobiles proceeded to tho
YanDusen field, where Mr. Fairbanks
addrcesed a crowd of several thousand
people who had gathered to hear him.
Mayor Wine welcomed the distin
guished visitor in a few well chosen
words and then Senator Fnlton In his
nsual happy manner Introduced the
guest of the day. Mr: Fairbanks'
Seech was parcly of an impromptu
nature, but he Is a pleasing talker and
his numerous witticisms and local hits
soon aroused tho enthusiasm of the au-
dlenco and dispelled the Idea that ho is
an "iceberg," as so often depicted.
