Governor Said to Approve
Single Head Plan.
Governor I" rear is" in favor of the
plan which will bring the Survey
oilier, the Department of Public
Works and 1 he Land oilier under
one head, according to a statement
made by him this morning. The
rexirt agreed on by the conference
committee of the House and Senate
in the appropriation bill fixes the
ilary for the head of the consoli-
lated departments at -tlOO per
month. It is generally understood
that Superintend! nt of Public Works
Marston Campbell is in line for the'
position. This also means that new
positions must be found for Land
'oinmissioiier Pratt and Surveyor
Wall or they must look outside the
government for work.
Wlieli the Governor was asked
lbout the matter the following con
versation took place:
Governor, are you in favor of
the plan to consolidate the Survey
ollice, the Department of Public
Works and the Lntd ollice? '
"Well, I hclhvc that the Land of
fice and the Survey ollice should be
under one head and under special
ireunistances it would be proper to
place them under the same head as
the Department of Public Works."
'Do you consider that those spe
cial circumstances' exist at thepres-
'Yes, at the present time I am
inclined to believe that it will -be
list to follow the plan outlined and
consolidate the three positions."
Roosevelt to Become
Leader of the Chinese.
One of our Japanese exchanges, a
powerful journal in Japan, states
that cx-Prcsidcnt Roosevelt has a
position awaiting him that will ap
peal to every atom of strenuosity he
possesses, will call for every ounce
of the Big Stick and will keep even
Lis boundless energy fully employed.
The position for which our contem
porary slates him is that of political
mss-adviser to the Throne of China.

Then will China wake up- Prod
led by the man with the teeth, tin
giant will arise, and, with Teddy on
his shoulder to whisper in his ear,

Seriously, though, what an op
portunity such a post offers to a
man of the Roosevelt temperament !

Federal Judge May Retire
A possible change in the govern
orship, indicated by a rejxirt in The
Star last night, is stated to drpnid
largely upon the altitude of United
States Judge Dole, who is consider
ing retiring from the bench. Judge
Dole is at present in poor health,
and has adjourned his court until
July. At the same time, he has
indicated to friends that he may
not take the Iwnch again at all.
It was stated yesterday that the
present federal judge was undecided
hether to retire or not. lie has
ad a heavy calendar on his hands
for a long time, and has finally had

The plan to have Frear take the
federal bench is said to depend 111)-

hether he will retire or not. If
Dole retires, there will be two fod-

Army is Recruited
to Full Strength.
New Yosk, April 10 For th-1
first time since the Spanish war
the United States army is recruit-,
ed up to its full strength. This
fact was made public here to-day
with the posting of an order -ign-
ed by the -Adjutant-General of the
army, iif which all recruiting is
ordered temporarily discontinued
except in the ease of time expired

The impression that bringing

From now on there is to be a

The Population d Japan
is' Rapidly Increasing.
The Tokio .sahi, i m o i it -c 1 out that
the imputation nf Japan is yearly
increasing at the rate of close Uhhi
half a million. According to official
statistics, says our onlemporary,
Japan's population in lDOo stood at
I7,!0,(KK), showing an increase on
tly preceding year of tli'.t.lKK I, where
as in 1S'.J." (hr increase was :i7,(XM.
There is little doubt, therefore, that
the rale of increase will exceed half
a million in a few years' time. The
country is already so d"iicly mpn
latrd that there is not much room
left for the accommodation of the
growing population. In these cir
cumstances, it is not surprising that
the question has begun to engage the
attention of publicists. True the
field for the outlet of Japan's sur
plus Hipulatioii has leen enlarged
in Korea and Manchuria as a result
of the war, but even these new areas
will not be able to absorb Japanese
emigrants for ;ni indelinatc jx-riniL
It appears to our coiitemKirary,
however, that the Japanese need not
worry much almut the question. A
glance at a map of the world will
reveal the fact that there are many
spots on the face of the globe where
the Japanese jM'ople may with ad
vantage seek a field for emigration.
South America stands first in the
list. Hitherto attempts to foster
Japanese emigration to South Arn
ica have met with indifferent suc
cess, but this is owing to the defec
tive methods adopted, not because
the continent was Vnsuitablc for
Japanese emigrants. If proper means
were adopted the vast territories of
South America would prove a very
promising field for the reception of
Japan's surplus population.
Then there are the South Sea Isl
ands. It is true that at present the
European countries which rule these
islands are adopting an exclusive
policy, but this barrier against
Orientals is not likily to last longs,
it will lie broken down sooner or
later. It is scarcely conceivable that
a veritable treasure-house of the
world, such as the South Sea Islands
are reputed to le, should r ic
inaili unopened because of the lack
of labor. The rulers of Java and the
Philippines, for instance, have done
much to encourage the immigration
of whites into these territories, but
the the attempts have not been suc
cessful owing to climatic and other
reasons. It is vident that to ensure
a speedy and profitable di velopment
of these islands, recourse nilfst be
had to alien labor. For example,
in Hawaii and (ueensland where
illcn lalmr is employrd, the amount
of -xKrts jht capita is Y:0() and
Y200 respectively, whereas in coun
tries where alien labor is excluded
tin' amount is much lower, Itoinir
nly Yo in Java ami Y20 in Brazil
"and Vcnezuila. This important
economic circumstance now seems
to have been recognized by intelligent
people in Europe and America, and
there is little doubt that in the
devolpnient of the resources of the
uth Seas, which is certain to 1m
undertaken by foreign capitalists in
the near future, the employment of
siqu rior Oriental labor will engage
their attention. Turning to Austra
lasia it will be observed that the
white inhabitants areclainoiiring for
a white Australia, but it would be
interesting to speculate in regard to
a continent having an an a of 2, !((()
(KK) s(iiarc miles, inhabited by only
four million people, how long such
a doctrine can keep itsgroiind if tin
desired oM iiing-up of natural wealth
is to be attained.. It is not at all
improbable that the day will arrive
when Australia will change its pre
sent attitude and be induced to wcl
come Oriental lalNir within its 1 h r
ders. In the event of these surmise:
lieing realized, the Japanese will 1h
the first on the field and will un
doubtedly be favorably received.

Since the black pugilist Johnson

heard a lot about the hardness of

to common belief, is capable of
standing almost any blow.
The following story would seetn
to indicate something of the kind,
anyhow. Two negro men were
employed in tearing down n three-,

was on top of the building taking
off t ho bricks and sliding them
down a narrow- wooden chute to
the ground, some thirty -feet below,
where theother was picking them
up and piling them.
When the latter m-gro was stoop
ing over to pick up a brick, ,the
former accidentally let one fall,
striking him directly on tlie luyid.
