Count Terauchi was a member of the famous Choshu clan, from which have sprung renowned leaders of the Japanese army. He was bora on February 5, 1852, at Nagato, and was the son of a samurai. He distinguished himself as a young soldier of the Imperial Guards Regimen, in putting down Saigo’s Rebellion, in which service he was wounded in the right arm, as a result of which that arm thereafter was useless.    X Although outdone by more brilliant soldiers, Count Terauchi won distinction as a military administrator and wTon promotion as major general and appointment as the president of the Japanese Military Staff College.

The advocates of paving assert that such, improvement would greatly develop the western part of the city and add material to property values along the principal street in that part of the city.

Frelinghuysen , Calls Unionism “ New Autocracy By the Associated Press WASHINGTON, Oct. 21. — The coal strike, about which representatives of the miners and operators were conferring with Secretary of Labor Wilson today as a last effort to avert the strike of bituminous coal workers called for November I, was denounced in the senate as a strike of union labor leaders and not of the men, and as an effort to bring about class control. Senator Frelinghuysen, chairman of the senate committee investigating the coal strike, startled the members of the senate by" denouncing unionism tinder its present leadership as "a new autocracy,** tending towards bolshevism. In the course of his remarks, tile senator said that in his opinion today's conference would not be successful. Nearly a dozen senators joined the discussion and most of them were of < stationed Japanese soldiers in every province. Within a few months after assuming the office of governor, his work of annexation was complete, and the fact was announced to the treaty powers. The emperor of Korea was reduced to the rank of a prince and the rule of Terauchi was supreme. Under his direction Japan spent vast sums of money in improving and developing the province. His constructive ability as manifested in its rebuilding' won for him the admiration of the Japanese people. Small in stature and modest in appearance, Count Terauchi combined with keen military knowledge a large capacity for statesmanship and power of leadership. His aversion to politicians cost him many friends. As premier he announced that his aim. would be to promote friendly ties between Japan and the United States, that he had no intention of “waving the sword** at America and that he accepted his office “as a statesman seeking the lasting interests of his people; not as a militarist seeking glorification by the sword.’* ENGLISH MINE DISASTER BRINGS DEATH TO FORTY By the AeeoetSted Press PENCANCE, England, Oct. 21.— nii    ____ ______ ______A disaster in the Levant mine at St. the ~opinTon that~ whiIe the strike’ Just.
