CRANE MADE VICTIM
Removal of Minister Dye ts So
llcltatlons of Japs.
PURSUES AN AGGRESS1YE POLICY
Former American Official Was, Very
Active Against Japan Since
War With Russia.
Fckin, Oet. 14. Japan has taken of
ficial cogntianco of tho repotted efforts
of British and American luteretts to
arrango rrith China to build tho Kin
Chow-Tst-Tsihar railway, as it Is eon-
sldercd that the proposed construction
of tho road has grown out of tho defeat
of the plan to build tho Hslnmlutia
Japan has formally notified China
that, whllo it does sot intend to ob
struct that government yet it will main
tain its right to be consulted with ro
spect to Manehurian railways.
Decent events in connection with the
recall of Charles 15. Crano precipitated
Japan's action. It Is understood that
the action of the American secretary of
state followed Japan's solicitations, not
only on account of Mr. Crane's alleged
utterances, but beeauso of American ac
tivities in Manchuria and of another
former American official, whom the
Japanese regarded as exceedingly active
in the anti-Japancso movement In Man
churia following the war.
Tho Japanese appear to be alarmed at
tho American activities, which seem to
bear the stamp of governmental direc
tion. JAPAN rOROED RESIGNATION.
Removal of Crane Believed Dno to Her
Washington, Oct. 14. It is tho gen
eral opinion in Washington today that
tho real reason behind the resignation
of Charles R. Crane, of Chicago, as min
ister to China has not yet been divulged.
Tho question Is being asked if Japan Is
strong enough to dictate what man in
tho United States shall send to the
I Minister Crane has always been
, friendly with Russia, and contributed
f $5000 to the young empress ' fund dur
ing tho war with Japan, lie also has
rigid ideas about Japancso encroach
ment in Manchuria as affecting Ameri
can rights. The official statement
given out by Philander C. Knox, secre
tary of state, which cited certain al
leged indiscretions of Mr Crane as n
basis for accepting bis resignation, has
not entirely satisfied either official of
lay Washington that tho whole story has
Tho possible explanation of this dis
satisfaction lies perhaps not in the
fact that Mr. Knox's own statement
is interpreted here as a confirmation of
"canards" which he officially charged
Mr. Crane with circulating with re
spect to tbo action of the state depart
ment toward the Japancso-ChincM
treaty. It is tbo opinion bcro .bat u
this was the real basis for the ousting
of Mr. Crane, Mr. Knox, as secretary
of state, would have followed the usual
diplomatic method of burying tho real
issue as deeply as possible, especially
when Its confirmation officially tended
to magnify the existing diplomatic con
ditions, and would have offered some
It was apparent today that every
effort will bo made in administration
circles to ignore further pursuit of the
Crane incident, if possible. It was
stated at the White Homo that, so far
as known there, tho Incident was closed.
In the absence of Mr. Knox, officials
in ehargo at the state department ex
hibited a decided inclination to keep
out or tho whole mrair. in inn opinion
of Washington, tbo Crane Incidont will
not die so easily, partially owing to
tbo standing of Mr, Crane, partially
to the diplomatic questions directly in
volved and partially beeauso of Mr.
Crano 's own statement in reply to Mr.
Knox, which is interpreted hero as re
flecting on the administration of the
Balloonist Claim Cnp.
Ulehmond, Va., Oct. 14. Winning tho
Lahm cup for the longest flight made In
a balloon under the auspices of the
Aero club of America, and breaking all
speed records for long-dlstaneo flights,
A. Holland Torbes, of New York, and
Max Flelschmann, of Cincinnati, landed

retical seizure of practically every bi

VU TALKS WITH SPIRITS,
Eminent Chineso Minister Atteuds Se
ances In Washington.
Washington, Oct. 15. -Taking his
first nibble at tho mysteries of spirit
lm lntt Sunday night, Minister Vn
Ting Tniig, tho best educated Chinaman
In tho world, returned to tho "medi
ums" last night for a full bite. Ho
left the "seance" chock full of Infor
mation from tho spirit world, for
through the "medium" he Is supposed
to have consulted tho spirts of the late
Pnvililnnt. Alflvltilnt nnil hla Awn ilnnil

Minister Wu doesn't my ho is n con
vert to spiritualism. In fact, he tries
to avoid the subject entirely while talk
ing with newspaper men. Ho admits,
however, that ho is interested, and that
ho may attend other "seances" before
retiring from his post in tho near fu
ture. His first cxporionco occurred lat
Sunday night nt n public meeting,
where anonymous Chineso spirits were
described to lr. Wu by a "trance
medium," as hovering In tho distin
iniNhed dlnlomat'a imniedlnta vlelnltv.
Dr. Wu exhibited great Interest.
Last night ho went again, this time
to a smaller seanco at a private bouse.
Dr. Wu refined last night to dicus
his experience or Impressions, nnd even
showed solicitude lest his presence at
tho seance should be tho subject of
newspaper mention. Tho woman me
dium who officiated a different one
this time brought t.i him messages
purporting to eomo from the late Frcsl
dent McKlnlcy, who was an Intimate
friend of Dr. Wu, and also from tho
minister's own mother. The latter was
the more startling because, apparently,
delivered in the Chinese language.
These messages arc elaimed by the
spiritualists to be brought to tho me
dium in trance by tbo spirit of a 18-year-old
American Indian girl, under
whose "control" sho speaks In broken
r.ngusn; yet mo conversation between
Dr. Wu and tho medium, while osten
sibly under this "eontrol," was some
what extensive, lasting fully five min
utes, and seemed to bo in the Chineso
vernacular, question and answer, unin
telligible to tho auditors, passing back
and forth with considerable freedom.
Thero was every evidence that tho dip
lomat perfectly understood the commu
nication which apparently appeared to
eomo from the spirit of Dr. Wu's own
mother. It was asserted that tho
medium and her "control" aro both
absolutely Ignorant of tho Chinese lan
guage. JAPAN MUCH DISTURBED.
Americans and British to Build Rail
road In China.
Washington, Oct. 13. American and
British capitalists havo nbout completed
arrangements with the Chinese govern
ment to build a railroad from Chin
Chow Fu through Mongolian territory
to Tsitsibar, a distaneo of about 400
miles. This fact seems to havo dis
turbed the equanimity of Japan.
Published reports from Pekln Indi
cate that Japan has given China notlco
that it will maintain its right under
tho two treaties concluded last month
to be consulted with respect to Man
ehurian railways. Japan says it re
serves decision with regard to subse
Among officials here it is regarded as
doubtful if Japan will be permitted to
interfere, without objection, in this or
other enterprises in Chian or Man
churia in which Americans are Inter
ested. The fact that an objection to
the construction of the proposed Chin
Chow Fu-Tsitslbar road is hinted nt by
Japan Is regarded hero as tending to
support allegations or monopolistic in
clinations on the part of Japan.
The proposed railroad through Mon
golia will be about -100 miles in length
to Tsltsihar, and, If extended on tho
Amur, its total length will approximate
COO miles. The fact that it will tap tho
Russian Trans-Siberian road at Tsltsi
har Is thought to explain tho supposed
uneasiness of Japan, nnd, inasmuch as
the Chineso Eastern and South Man
ehurian line, because of its moro direct
routo and shorter distance to tho south.
would bo likely to become a stronir
competitor to the latter road, which is
now controlled by Japan.
uovernment omciais hero regard Ja-
pan's opposition to the Hslnmlntnn

ment by China of a portion of her ter
ritory, and as in direct violations of ar

which states that "Japan and Russia
