Loss of Strength
The testimony of Mr. B.
Dennis, Adelaide, South Aus
tralia, who was cured by Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, is like unto that of
many thousands of others. He
"It is with very much pleasure
that I testify to the great benefit I
received from using your wonderful
blood-purl Her. 1 was a sufferer for
years from indigestion, loss of
strength and appetite, and constipa
tion. My whole system seemed to
bo thoroughly out of order. A friend
finally told mo to tako Ayer's Sarsa
parilla. 1 followed his advice, though
feeling discouraged at tho fruitless
results of other tieatment, and I am
thankful to stato that a few bottles
completely cured me."

ALLEGED JAPANESE PLOTS
TO COMqUER VNITm
nrimntlnnal Ramnr Couearnlns:
m luleullon to NeUe Hawaii
Ctmei via Mexico Oily.
El Paso (Texas), June 29. A
sensational story ia onrrent here
concernins the statements said to
be contained in a private tetter
from the City of Mexico, written
by an officer known to be a close
confidant of President Diaz. It is
to the effect that a Japanese Gov
ernment Commission recently
visited Mexico for the ostensible
purpose of securing colonization
rights, which, had they been
granted, would have resulted in a
great influx of Japanese into two
of tho western States which are
regarded as the richest in natural
resources in the Republic.
Tho rights asked for were so
startlingly 1 broad and extensive
that the scheme was yiewed with
much suspicion and was believed
to have for its ultimate purpose,
at a not very distant day, an at
tempt to 'conquer the United
States on somo slight pretext that
might nrise. The officer says the
Mexican Executive and Cabinet
are greatly interested in watchiug
tho outcome of tho Hawaiian con
troversy between tho Japanese
and the great republic
They believe the slightest delay
on the part of the United States
will result in the Japanese gain
ing possession of the islands.
They think it will be brought
about by an insurrection of the
Japanese now on the islands, with
the assistance of a strong Japan
ese nnval demonstration, which
tho United States would be un
able to prevent because of its
weak naval strength in Facifio
waters. Tho Japanese are regard
ed bb bold, smart and extremely
visionary, and afflicted "with a
dream for empire and greatness.
He believed Japan has already
concentrated a fleet for Hawaii in
addition to the Naniwa and an
other war vessel, now at Honolu
lu. He thought the Japanese
would show their hands soon after
the departure of the Japanoso
man-ol-war now lying in Ban
Francisco harbor, which is await
ing instructions from the home
Government through the Japanese
Ambassador at Washington. The
Japanese can forco the United
States to acquiesce in Japanese
possession ot the island by taking
them by forco and then proceed
ing to destroy the United Slates
coast cities and commerce in Paci
fic waters unless their rights by
circumstantial might are quickly
The belief prevails that the
United States is almost totally
unablo to cope with Japan in
Paoifio witora, at least 'for somo
months to onmo, in which inter
val the threatened destruction of
American commerce and property
would bring a strong public souti
ment in the United States against
a continuation of hostilities.

Who Broke Into Walker'
Store Now In Jail,
Some tirao on Tuesday night
thieves entered tho bicycle agency

window, ransacking the place and
getting away with considerable
plunder. Among the articles
stolen were a gold watob, two gold
rings, $8.25 in silver, $5 in
niokels, $10 in Canadian and
English money and six gold
Japanese coins, tho whole amount
ingto about $200 in value.
Detective Kaap'a wbb given
charge of the case and came to
the conclusion that the job was
done by more than ons man and
that the gang worked in the dead
of the night. Just what led him
to this conclusion is a mystery
that he is keeping to himself.vbut
it proved to be, correct." 'Acting
on bis suspicions Kaapa was '
loitering about Beretania street at
half-past two this morning, waitr
ing for something to turn up, hav
ing other' officers conveniently
Before long a native and three
boys came along. Recognizing,
the nativo as an old jailbird, the
detective stopped the party aud
questioned them. Not receiving
satisfactory answers ho had the
four taken to tho station houso
and confined separately. This
morning they wero questioned
and soon squealed, confessing
that they had robbed Walker's
placo tho night before. From the
information obtained Kanpa hns
since recovered tho watch aud
some of the other property, be
sides obtaining data which may
lead to the clearing up of othor
The names of tbo thieves are:
Eaili, an old jailbird who has
served several terms for larceny
and kindred offenses; Autono

that a strange child was at his
place. Tho officer who received
the messngo turned to Mr. Guild
with tho remark: "John Cardeii

In conspqnenco of this mistake

In tho District Court this mor
ning Ah Choy was 'on trial for tho
offense of having a chofa ticket in
his posecssion. Tho testimony
was very conflicting.
For the prosecution detective
Cordes and a Chinese informer

the arrest was mde-Ab Choy had
a lead pencil and a ohefa ticket in

fori the defense brotrgfafcrjnt the
fact that the Chinese witness for
tho"prosocution had done no work
for which no received payment
for two or throe years. ,'
For the defense two Chinese
testified that they wore in the
room when the informer aud Cor
des enteied. They had no war
rant or paper of any kind but
searched the premises and bed
thoroughly. Ah Cboy, tho de
fendant, camo in aud was seized
by Cordes and sbovi d out of the
door. Both witnesses were posi
tive that Ah Choy had nothing in
bis hand. '

the door, Cordes picked, up
a piece of paper from, a
a piie of refuse lying near by,
shaking it in his face and" shout

seen the. paper or pencil before.
In deciding the case, vjhioh was
submitted without 'argument,
Judge Wilcox gave aq -intimation
to the prosecution at -what his
course would be in similar cases,
" In a.11 criminal.' cases it
