Resident-General of Hermit Kingdom
Issues Pamphlet to Justify Occu
pancy by Little Hrown Men.
Washington, Aug. 7. The Far
Eastern malls juBt arrived conrtilns a
pamphlet issued from the Japanese
resident-general ot Korea entitled
"Administrative Reforms in Korea,"
designed to vindicate the work of the
Japanese In the Hermit Kingdom
under the authority conferred by the
Japanese-Korean agreement of 1904,
whereby Japan was constituted ad
viser to Korea. The document treats
of the financial difficulties that con
fronted Marquis Ito at the outset,
owing to the Inadequacy of the Ko
rean exchequer to bear the cost of
reforms. He succeeded In raising a
loan from the Japanese Industrial
Bank of 10,000,000 yen, guaranteed
by the customs receipts, bearing In
terest at 6 per cent and sold at 90
yen per 100 yon. The money realized
was distributed in the reconstruction
of roads, In building water works,
establishing an educational system,
the creation of banks and erection of
hospitals. It la said the Korean roads
were totally unfit for horse and car
riage travel, so that It became neces
sary to allot 1.500,000 yen In laying
out four great roads to travers the
regions of best promise and connect
the best harbors and railway centers.
Prior to the residency there was
In vogue a Confucian educational
method, whereby a village dominie
called about him the children of the
neighborhood and taught them the
rudiments of reading and writing.
There were 10,000 of these sehools
and at Seoul an Institute of higher
Confucian learning. A primary school
ordinance, promulgated In 1905, was
a dead letter, and the middle grade
schools In Seoul, with the exception
of one In foreign languages, existed
In name only. An entirely new sys
tem has been established, first Im
portance being given to disseminat
ing common education under Japan
ese Instructors. The existing hos
pitals, defective In management and
limited in accommodations and
equipment, have been consolidated
Into the "Great Korean Hospital."
The police department, which had
really been in triplicate, has been
Of the remarkable attempt at puri
fication of the Imperial court the
pamphlet, after painting a striking
picture of th'e corruption and cloth
thut existed, describes the reform
measures adopted and gays:
"In court circles there were,
no boubt, somo at first felt alarm
at this radical turn of affairs, but
the sterling sincerity of the reBldent
general's solicitude becoming gradu
ally better known, the force of re
sentment has since Rluekened, until
no voice Is now heard In active oppo
sition. "The way In which Justice had
been administered In Korea," It Is
stated, "Is too revoking In all sense
of decency to be told In detail."
The country has not yet attained
that stag" when the executive and
judicial departments are Important,
so the system of Justice Is regarded
as a thing to be farmed out; bribery
Is general, Innocent people are con
victed and their property confiscated
and the guilty are liberated. All
this, says the pamphlet, Is being re
formed by the Japanese.
In conclusion the pamphlet says
the Japanese have provided the Ko
reans with a code of laws regulating
the development of native mines, pro
viding for the protection of immi
grants and encouraging the develop
tnent of productive Industries.

London, Aug. 7. A special dis
patch received here from Tangier, de
scribing .the bombardment of Casa
Blanca, says that the French cruiser
Du Chayla and the Spanish gunboat
Don Alvaro de Bazan participated
with the Galilee in the bombardment
of the villages surrounding Casa
Blanca, which were destroyed by the
fire of the warships. During the
bombardment large reinforcements
of tribesmen came up and many of
them were killed or wounded. The
Casa Blanca battery Joined In the fir
ing upon the foreign warships,
whereupon the guns of the French
and Spanish cruisers were turned
upon the battery, which soon caused
the Moorish sommander to send a
messenger to the French admiral re
questing his pardon. This was re
fused and the admiral sent a peremp
tory order to the Moorish command
er to surrender himself to the French
According to another special dis
patch from Tangier, about 150 Moors
are said to have been killed In the
town, battery and villages around
Casa Blanca during the bombard
ment of the foreign warships. The
Casa Blanca battery was reduced to
ruins by the warships' shells.
Landing Parties Are Fired Upon.
Tangier, Aug. 7. The French
cruiser Galilee was bombarding the
Moorish quarter of Casa Blanca and
the neighborhood of the city when
the last steamer, which has Just ar
rived here, left that port. The Kaby.
les attacked Casa Blanca and the
Moorish authorities appealed to the
commander of the Galilee for assist
ance. He thereupon landed sixty
men and a Spanish cruiser landed
forty. This landing party was fired
upon by the Babyles and seven
Frenchmen, including an officer, were
wounded. The combined Franco-
Spanish force thereupon cleared the
city of hostile tribesmen, guards were
placed about the foreign Consulates
and then the Galilee opened fire with
her big guns upon the rebels.
