Miners, Rudely Armed, In Ugly Mood And May Japan had found lodgment in high official quarters, but such is the fact The situation between the United States and Japan has reached the point of hair-triggei sensitiveness and it is the opinion of officials in authority at the war department that the relations between the two coun-tiies are "but surely approaching a crisis that ultimately means war. Their reasons for this view are based not only on general conditions and military preparations going on m Japan, as reported by agents of the United States in the Far East, but on the two following specific propositions. The approaching completion of the Panama canal The -probability that the approaching democratic congress will make a play for the labor vote of the Pacific slope and pass a drastic Japanese exclusion law that will fan the anti-American sentiment in Japan into a war flame. If Japan is bent on war, as officials of the war department are strongly inclined to believe, they think her plan will be to strike before the Panama canal is completed and opened for the passage of fleets as that would give the United States a gieat advantage in assembling warships for action in the Pacific Japan is jealous of the Pacific, of which she is determined to be mistress, and it is her Jealousy of the Panama canal, of which the administration here 0., March 22 no looks veiy much as if the modifie Dean bill will be rushed through th legislature, possibly on Thursday, an possibly without a public hearing The "drjs" are fighting hard, but th "wets" claim administiation backing-or at least no opposition.

Hynicka .treasurer of Ham- ilton county, that real eBtate owned by a city but leaded to private parties for commercial uses Is taxable and may be seized and sold for non ment of taxes on It. The common pleas court to which it was flrst tried held that such property was taxable but that it was not salable for failure to pay the taxes. The circuit court af- firmed the common pleas as to thft taxability of the real estate but re- versed it as to the salability for nou- payment of taxes. The supreme court affirmed the circuit court On both, points. The East Battery property Is oc- cupied by the Sandusky Tool Co. This companv. beside paying rent for use of the property, pays taxes om about taxable real estate in ad- dition to a much larger amonot fof personal property. The West Bat- tery is occupied by the Sanduskr Foundry Machine Co., which also, pays rent to the city. This com- panv, however, does not pay any tax on the real estate it occupies but In- stead pays taxes on its buildings at personal property along with the other property.
