"Neither Governor Harmon nor Governor Wilson voted for William Jennings Bryan when he was presi- dential candidate in said Sen- ator Stone.

"The abdication of the Manchus is only the means to greater develop- ment and the future poMcy of the re- public will be in the direction of So- cialism. "I am, an ardent follower of Henry George, whose ideas are practicable on the virgin soil of China as com- pared with their impracticability in Europe or the United States, where the money is controlled the cap- italists." Dr. Sun says that he has the full consent of the government to start his propaganda immediately. GENERAL ASA B. CAREY DIES Veteran of Three Wars Succumbs at Orlanuo. Fla.

RESOLUTION IN THE SENATE Senator Lodge Has One Calling for Information as to Reported Estab- lishment by Japan of Naval Base In Reply Will Be Distinct Blow at Bugaboo of War With Far Eastern Power. Washington, April Taft's answer to the Lodge resolution calling for Information as to the re- ported establishment by Japan of a naval base on Magdalena bay in Mex- ico will be designed to set at rest the constant rumors of Japanese coloniza- tion in North America and will be a distinct blow at the bagaboo of a war with Japan. The president's answer may be sent to the senate today. Although it was denied that Senator Lodge was act- ing in sympathy with the administra- tion it was admitted that the presi- dent will make use of his resolution to set at rest recurrent reports of friction with a friendly power. Chairman Sulzer of the house for- eign affairs committee, after a talk with President Taft, declared the Lodge resolution was "the merest buncombe" and that Japan had ac- quired no rights for a naval station from Mexico. Huntington "Wilson, acting secre- tary of state, had a short conference with the president about the reply to the resolution. le became known that the answer will be lacking in sensa- tional features and at the state de- partment it was said the response would tend generally to discredit re- ports of Japanese designs on Mexican territory. "The story that said Mr. Sulzer, "or any (syndicate acting for Japan, has acguired directly or indirectly, at Magdalena bay, or else- where in Mexico, has no foundation in fact. I speak advisedly. In view- of our well settled policy The assertion that Japan has acquired a base on the Pacific coast of Mexico refutes itself and is too absurd for serious contra- diction by Mexico or Japan "The Lodge resolution is well under- stood by those on the inside, however. It will do no harm and when the an- swer is officially filed the atmosphere bfe cleared and we will hear no more of Mexico ceding to Japan a naval base on the Pacific." EASIER FOR THE SETTLERS Senate Concurs in Amendments to Gamble's Indian Land Bill. Washington, April 5. The senate concurred in the house amendments to Senator Gamble's bill to extend the time of payments on lands in the Cheyenne and Standing Rock reser- vations.

There are about acres in the tract to which these provisions apply. They have not been fully entered upon, but under the easier conditions imposed by the present bill it is expected that the remainder will be taken up rap- idly. _ MICHIGAN LEGISLATURE ENDS Quits Without Enacting Presidential Preference Primary Law.

Louis, April sign of abate- ment of the flood that for days has dealt or threatened disaster all along the Mississippi river from St. Louis to Arkansas City comforted the thou- sands of homeless sufferers waiting for the return of normal conditions to go home and find out what the water has left them. Instead the water came from the North in ever increasing vol- ume along with predictions that more would follow. The river is within two feet of what the Memphis weather forecaster has termed the dead feet. In his opinion the levees will go when the pressure represented by that much water is reached. A stage of 45 feet, three feet above the danger line, is predicted. Weak spots have developed too, at Mound City, Ark and at the Reelfoot levee, west of Hickman, Ky. All along the river the shifts of men engaged in reinforcing the sorelj tested levees were urged to redoubled efforts, while behind the dykes those who had not obeyed the warning and fled gathered up or secured their mov- able property and hastened to the hills. Numerous unconfirmed reports of breaks in levees not designed to withstand an unheard of flood in- creaSed anxiety the length of the dan- ger zone. Provisjons and Tents Arrive. The day, however, brought relief in shape of' provisions and tents to the refugees at Hickman, Ky.. the number including the driven from tffeir homes in the factory dis- trict here, and the gathered in from the submerged area across on the Missouri side. Governor Harmon of Ohio offered more tents fo'r the Tennessee and Kentucky sufferers. At Memphis, where no less than a dozen first clas river steamboats are tied up, the flooding of the whole of the low lying north section, it is feared, has polluted the water supply. The health authorities have warned the residents of the close in section to boil their drinking water as a preventive measure. The death list has reached ten. At Burksvllle. Ky., Miss Allen Alexander was drowned when a boat capsized in the overflowed section of Red river. A negro was drowned at New Madrid, Mo. One of the phases of the flood is the tying up of practically all traffic not only on the Mississippi, but on the Ohio and the other navigable tributa- ries of the Mississippi. Usually a "big river" is the signal for an unusual amount of traffic. Especially is this true of the coal fleets from Pittsburg which go down the Ohio whenever possible on a rise. Now, however, hundreds of barges and coal boats are waiting until the Mississippi is open for again. High water, too, on most of the streams keeps the larger steamboats tied up because they cannot get under iridges. TAFT ISSUES ORDER FOR AID Directs That Rations Be Issued to River Flood Sufferers. Washington, April Taft Directed the quartermaster general's department of the army to furnish ra- tions to any sufferers of the Mississip- pi and Missouri river floods who are found to be in want.

Quarte- mont had been held on a warrant charging murder in the first degree. The grand jury reported a "no bill." Quartemont refused to make a state- ment after his release. The action of the Jury was predict- ed. Deductions were made from the fact that the police introduced no wit-1 nesses before gravid Jury other than' those who had been interviewed by newspaper reporters and who knew but simple circumstantial evidence (relative to Quartcinont.

Prepares Bill to Break Up the Foreign Shipping HITS AT FOREIGN SHIP TRUST Representative Humphrey Offers Bill; to Break Up Pools. jj Washington, April bill de- signed to break up foreign shipping pools and combinations and to give to this government greater control over such alleged restraints of trade which originate outside the United States was introduced by Representative Humphrey of Washington.

The bill would provide that any ves- sel not of the 'United States, owned or controlled by any. persons or cor- porations adjudged to have violated the Sherman law, and which might be used to carry out the purposes ad- judged unlawful, be prohibited from. entering any port of the United States or clearing therefrom under penalty of a fine of for each offense. NEBRASKAN WIELDS CAUSTIC HAMMER Bryan Raps Taff, Roosevelt and Harmon. Des Moines, April J. Bryan expressed the hope that congress, by legislative enactment, shortly will the president of the United States that he must not "retire to the dark room of the White House and ttere devpldp bis judicial negatives for the supreme or federal benches." Mr. Bryan was the principal speak- er at the annual banquet of the Iowa Jefferson club, and in his address iterated his charges that Governor Harmon was the candidate of Wall street for the Democratic candidacy.

Mr. Bryan left for Chicago immedi- ately following the banquet to con- tinue his speaking tour through lift, nois, Ohio and Eastern states. Just before his departure he was told that Governor Harmon planned an invasion of Nebraska during the same time he was making speeches In Ohio.

In explanation of his action. Gover- nor Foss says he had learned with re- gret that representatives of one 6r more of the avowed candidates for president were preparing to withdraw their names from the primary ballot out of courtesy to him. The withdrawal of the name of Gov- ernor Foss leaves two candidates, Woodrow Wilson and Champ Clark, on the Democratic presidential prefer- ence ballot. v Oil Explosion Is Fatal. i Piwgree, N.
