MA-DE orricMAL VIC San Francisco, Cai., MaicJi the cantral emergency hospital Mr. Stevens who was shot yesterday by Japs, was examined Sur- geon W. 1. Terry and Surgeon T. H. Lumval. He was then prepared lor removal toranother hospital. As soon as he was removed from the operation table Mr., Stevens called for an "Associated reporter to whom lie gave the following version'of the shooting.- "As I got out of the Fairmont hotel omnibus several Koreans ap- proached mo. One of them struck me in the face, lacerating my cheek. As I started to puisue him another Korean began to shoot1 at me. i'fh> first shot and-struck the Korean I was pursuing, the next >two shots took effect' in my back." Thjs evidently the work oi a small band of'Koreans in and'a bout San Francisco (who resent that the Japanese have -a protectorate over Korea and believe th'at I amv to some Kvwnt Responsible for this condition of affairs in their country." Mr. SteVens was. very anxious that a hopeful statement regarding his recovery be sent out in order not to alarm his sister in Atlantic City, where he was about to visit on his vacaiion after a long period abroad. The sur- geons are of the opinion that Mr. Stevens will recover if no" untoward com- plications The Mr. Stevens at the'Fairmont hotel last night was the result pi a mass meeting of the Korean Societies of San Fran- which' appointed four prominent members, Earl Lee, C. M. Chang. Y. '-M. Moon and U. S. Chby all young mcii a committee to interview him and his .views on the Koiean question after his arrival. The opinions expressed by him were decidedly favorable to tha Jap- KoreV The four Koreans called on Mr. Stevens shortly after 9 o'clock- last" night. -Lee who speaks English fluently asked-Stevens'if he had made in.the press and the latter replied in the affirmative. Then he wanted to know the Japanese were not killing oq the Koreans. Stevens said, The spokesman (Lee) then wanted to know if all the K'rcan officials had not bfcen eliminated and Stevens again responded to the contrary, adding that the young man had probably, been too from his country to know the exact condition of the government. ''.Then the attack and Stevens was knocked down and beaten with chairs. His head struck the marble flooring but lie quickly rose and seizing a chair pieced fhis' against the wall and held his assailants at bay until help arrived. Aftsr the assault Luc said: "I called him a liar when I was held, Ibut they would not let us figh't. .We are sorry that we could not do more to him! Lee said thai Stevens is paid by the Korean government but is doing what the. Korean paople do not want him to do "that said Lee, "he is talkirlg'filsely abjut 115 and the Japanese.

A of his to the department of justice "was enclosed by Se'cretaiy Loeb, as the reply to tho appeal of Mayor Mclirido who made public the press letter tonight. "Laquestionc Scciale" recently published an appeal of miiamatory character .which- caused the action to be taken. 1'rcsidcnt Itooseveit's' letter to the department of justice as a-m to the M'ayor McBride, is as follows: THK'-WHlTiS'HUUSK .March I'JOS.

They are of course the enemies of mankind and every effort bhould be strained to hold .them accountable for an offense- caused by their .publication. They are more in- famous than that of our oulmaiy murderer. This matter has, been brought to my attntion by the mayor of the city of Pateison. i effort be ruad'd to get at the under the federal it may be, found im- possible to do I shall also, tlnough the Secretary of State call the at- tcnLon of the govr-ruor of New Jersey to the circumstance so that he may proceed under the state laws. His attention being further drawn to the fact that the newspaper ia circulated in other states. After you have concluded your investigation I wish a icport from you to serve as recommendation by me for action by Secuon 3, 1893, ol the revised statute, "Lewd, obscene and lescivious bookb and letters or publications -for indecent an-l immoral or of any indecent and immoral natuie and postal cards upon which indecent and scumhous epithets aic written or printed are all excluded from- the mail0 and provision is made for fine and imprison- ment for the guilty. The, newspapu article in qucstjon advocates nmrusr- by dynamite. It .specilically advocates the murder enlisted nieu_of the United Army and officer- of the police force and the burning of tlu> houses of private citizens. The preaching of murder and arson is cer- tainly as immoral as. the circulation of obscene literature and if the prac- tice is nofalroudy forbidden by the law it should bo forbidden. The immi- gration law" now prohibits the entry into the United States of any person who cnt.rUina or 'advocates the views expressed m this newspaper article.
