In connection with the Schley inquiry:
"There is one etory which I am very
anxious should be truthfully presented ta
the public After Maclay's book was pub

been submitted to the commanding of

that they approved his statements.
"A reporter calling upon Admiral
■Sampson when he was ill in hi« bed

peared to be a confirmation of this
statement. The admiral was asked if he
Jiad seen and read the proofs of Maclay's
book and he said 'yea.'
"Unfortunately he was too ill to go Into

"1 am In a position to state the true

them as the truth. The proofs wera sent
by Mr. Maelay to Admiral Sampson with
a request that they should be read and

pot In good health and did not wish to
undertake the labor, but his secretary
pointed out that the Maelay history was
■a standard one and used at the naval
academy as a textbook. This volume
brought the history down through the
period of the Spanish war and it was
desirable that there should be no in
accuracies in it.
"The admiral, therefore, consented to
,read them and he did correct a certain
part of them, but as soon as he arrived at
ihe part which contained the statement
that Schley was a coward and a caitiff
he was very much angered and said the
Statement was one the author had no
fight to make, that it was unjust and un
fair to speak of any naval officer in such

"His secretary, impressed with the
great desirability of having the state

that he was in any way responsible for
the statements of opinions, did, on his
own aooount, compare the book with the

GENESIS OF THE HEMP COMI'AM
Former Assistant Secretary of War
Tells Why Mai. Hawk.cs Was
Washington, Oct. B.—George D. Meikle
john, former assistant secretary of war,
was a witness in the Heistand investiga
tion. He detailed his recollections of the
proposed hemp company.
He said that when the proposition was
made to him by Colonel Heistand to take
stock in the company he replied tjat he
would give it his consideration when he
had leisure. He declared that he had
not signed the "To whom it may con
cern" letter, introducing Major Hawkes,
with his official title.
He told at length of Major Hawkes" ap
pointment to a position in the Philippine
service and asserted that the appointment
was made solely upon the strength of
Hawkes' recommendations and upon that
of his record as a soldier. He declared
It had nothing to clo with Hawkes' con
troversy with Heistand.
Mr. Melklejohn explained that the open-
Ing and closing of hemp ports in the
Philippines was wholly within the control
of the military governor of the islands
and he could not, and would not if he
could, have influenced him in the matter.
He said that he saw no impropriety in of
ficers of the government, investing in such
an enterprise as the proposed bemp com
pany if they desired to do so.
Reverting to the appointment of Major
Hawkea to a position in the Philippine
service, Mr. Meikeljohn testified that
he had told Hawkes' attorney that al
though Major (Hawkes had txcellent in
dorsement it would not be to the interest
of the service to appoint a man that was
engaged in a controversy with an army
officer. Mr. Meiklejohn emphatically de
nied the intimations in the resolutions
that he had at any time used his official
position to pay private obligations.
L. S. Holt, of North Carolina, testi
fied as to conversations he had had with
Major Hawkes concerning the settlement
of the latter's alleged claim against the
proposed company. Hawkes had said that
he would "get even" with certain parties
in the hemp combination if they did not
settle -with him. Ho said that Hawkes
had told him he would have an investi
gation which would involve high officials
of the government. Hawkes had not
eaid to him that he would stop the in
vestigation for $800.

ACTS WITH CAPTORS
Ransom Collection a Scheme to Get
Money for Propaganda.
YARN VERY NATURALLY DOUBTED
Critical Relations Between United
States and Bulgaria Because
'of This Incident.
Paris, Oct. 8. —A letter received by the
Havas Agency from Salonica, dated Oct.
The American consul here has just re
ceived orders to make the arrangements
with tne vali (governor) for the payment of
the ransom of Miss Stone. The United States
will advance the money, afterward settling
wifa Turkey. The Turkish authorities have
made numerous arrests among the Bulgarian
population, without distinction of religion,
and nearly all have been put to torture in
the hope of abstracting information. A pris
oner named Dimiui said an understanding
existed between the Protestants and the
Macedonian committee and that Miss -Stone
was even acting in concert with them, with
the view of obtaining funds for a political
religious propaganda. These declarations,
wrung from Dimitri under torture, are value
less. What is certain is that the captain of
the baud designated for the payment of the
raneom a place in proximity to the Rouma
nian frontier, which proves that he hopes to
escape the Turkish police, and that the Bul
garian police do not cause him anxiety.
Thla condition of affairs is shown by the
faot that five or six hands of brigands, twelve
or fifteen men each, have become so bold be
tween Struniitza and Kuprfli that the officials
of the Oriental railway have requested the
Turkish military authorities to reinforce the
troops guarding the track and bridges.
Possible Outcuine of Our Tilt With
New Torh Sun Special Service
Washington, Oct. 8. —Bulgaria, as well
as the Macedonian committee, is charged
with participation in the plot which cul
minated in the abduction of Miss Stone,
the American missionary. This charge is
of a irost serious character, involving, as
it Tees, the possibility ci a breach in the
friendly relations which have hitherto
existed between the Sofia government and
Iho United States. Careful Investigation
has rot absolutely established Bulgarian
complicity, but suspicion exists at the
state department, Lased upon official dis
patches, and is sufficiently strong to have
been considered by the authorities in
cVltjrmining the policy pursued. This is
the roost important and surprising de
velopment of the abduction of Miss Stone.
That the government of Bulgaria should
have placed Usolf in a position where it
could even bi> sus'iooted of the crime is
a mystery to Washington officials. Bul
g.iria has always been a hotbed of anti-
Turkish plots, and it may be that her
officials, d«-fiirinK to involve Turkey in
further trouble with the United States,
countenance? the movement for the cap
ture of the American missionary. The
suspicion entertained by American offi
cials in Bulgaria and Turkey may have
arisen from the failure of the Bulgarian
government to r^s'ue Miss Stone. Offi
cials here admit that Bulgaria is acting
under difficulty, in view of the prob
ability that the use of force will result
in the death of the captive.
Here is where the international com
plication comes in. It is probable that
the suspicion which has existed as to
Bulgaria's connection with the abduc
tion of Miss Stone causes the United
States to appeal tj Itussla for its good
offn efl with the Balkan state to spare no
effort to effect the liberation o! the
Bulgaria's situation in Europe is such
that it is impossible for the United States
to reach her. She has no sea coast. Her
water frontage is on the Black sea. An
American squadron lies at Genoa, Italy,
but on f-cctunt of Turkish regulations
warships cannot pass through the Dar
danelles. Thus entrance into the Black
sea is closed. Turkey has no influence!
with Bulgaria. Russia's influence is par
amount. With the Russian agent at Sofia
and Consul Genera! Dickinson acting in
harmony, it is believed by the authori
ties that results of some kind will fol
low, if not in the way of Miss Stone's re
lease, in the apprehension and punish
ment of the brigands who were the ac
tors, though perhaps not the principals,

Phillppopplis, Bulgaria, Oct. B.—Public
interest in the fate of Miss Stone intensi
fies here. There is widespread condemna
tion of the government for allowing such
freedom to the Macedonian committee as
to enable It to engineer the outrage. Miss
Stone resided here before she went to Sa
lonica, and she is well known throughout
the country. The patriotic Bulgarians are
incensed., as they. recognize that Miss
Stone and her colleagues of the American
mission in Bulgaria and Macedonia have
been their fast friends throughout their
troubles. There is on lack of indications
that Prince Ferdinand is imperiling his
own position by permitting such license to
the committee as to enable it to black
mail prominent people in support of the

way to Sofia from Constantinople, said he

Washington, Oct. B.—Not since the suc

to save a human life as it is now exeJt
lng In behalf of Miss Stone. A sum .Qf

Spencer Eddy, the United States secre
tary of legation at Constantinople, who
has shown remarkable energy and ability
in unearthing I the ramifications !of the
plot which resulted in the kidnapping of
Miss .Stone. There is little doubt that the
Turkish government has done all that it
could be expected to do to run down the
bandits and what is now to be done is to
secure similar action on the part of j the
Bulgarian government, and to that end
influences more potent with the Slav races
than that of the United States government
are now at work.
Should these measures fail, then the
ransom money must be paid, and that
is why Mr. Eddy has been placed in pos
session of his powerful auxiliary. The
state department deprecates most ear
nestly newspaper discussion of the meas
ures it is taking in Miss Stone's behalf,
claiming that It is being greatly em
barrassed in its efforts by such publi
cations. Consequently the officials re

Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Oct. —A general strike of the
linemen employed by the Bell Telephone
company and its numerous allied systems
throughout the counry is threatened as a
result of the Chicago Telephone company's
refusal to grant the striking linemen's
demands for .an increase in the wage
scale. The Chicago company is declared
by the strikers to be practically the same
as the Bell company, being controlled
I largely by the same interest and having
been built up under the same system of
patents as the Bell company and controlled
for nearly half a century. If the general
strike should be called, more than 12,000
! linemen of the Bell company and allied
systems would be involved. '
Aside from Chicago, the principal places
in which the Bell interests would have to
fight are New York, Boston, and practi
cally every town of any considerable mag
nitude in New England and throughout the
eastern states generally. It would then be
only a question of a few weeks, say the
local strike officials, until the conflict
, would extend sympathetically to include
the linemen of the telegraph companies,
the trolley lines in cities and all or most
of the big electric and power plants.

' " Irregular Collections.
C. L. Smith, attorney for the board of
county commissioners, is now investi
gating the accounts of Alonsso Phillips,
former sheriff of Hennepin county, to de
termine whether or not Mr. Phillips col
lected excess fees from the county. The
commissioners yesterday afternoon in
structed him to look into the matter and
also authorized Chairman Sweet to make
formal demand for any overcharges that
may be discovered. Although the resolu
tion passed does not bind the board, it
was understood that if Mr. Phillips re
funds whatever amount is demanded from
him, the county will make no attempt to
collect under the triple liability law.
Up to date the investigation has de
veloped the fact that Mr. Phillips charged
for the service of tax warrants when no
money wats collected, and that he also
charged fqr citations in tax cases when
no service was had. In the aggregate
these charges will amount to a con*
siderable sum, as Mr. Phillips' bondsmen
will be released from all responsibility
Jan. 1, a formal demand for the money in
volved will be made before that time.
The former sheriff says that he is not
in the least worried over the investiga
tion, and declares that his books will
be found to be correct. Regarding this,
however, there is a difference of opin
ion; although the inaccuracies in Phil

advantage of the opportunity to pay their
respects to Marquis Ito, the "grand old
man" of Japan, who will spend the next
day or two in the twin cities. While no
arrangements have been made for a pub-
He reception during his stay, the former
premier of Japan will doubtless be glad
to meet his fellow countrymen. There
will be no chance to greet him in Minne

Y. Yaniazaki of the Japanese Bamboo
Manufacturing company, 911 Nicollet ave
nue, was very indignant when asked by
a Journal man: "Who Is Marquis
Ito?" He was willing enough to answer
the question, but he was indignant at the
very idea that there could be any one in
the civilized world so densely ignorant as
not ta be familiar with the life and char
acter of the great statesman. He ac
cordingly made haste to enlighten the in
terviewer. Mr. Yamazaki is very proud
of Marquis Ito, whom he speaks of as the
foremost Japanese statesman of to-day—
the man to whom thanks are largely duo
for Japan's present proud position among
the powers. Said Mr. Yamazaki:
You Americans say that a man is never
a prophet in his own country. It is not so
in Japan. Maiquis Ito is appreciated even
more in his own country than abroad, and
justly so. He is an old man now and his
life's work is about done, but his long rec
ord of public service is one of which he may
well be proud. He has dedicated his life
to the industrial and social uplifting of Japan
and all the world knows what marvelous
sucess haa awaited on his work. His health
is failing now, but his mind is as active as
ever. There Is still great respect for his
opinions in Japan and he may yet have
much to do with the further shaping of the
empire's policies. When I met Marquis Ito
many years ago in Tokio he was in the prime
of his vigorous manhood, with all his splen
did abilities bent on the advancement of Ja
pan along all the lines that make for the
Every school boy in Japan to-day knows
Ito's life story by heart. When Commodore
Perry sailed up Yeddo bay and opened Jap
anese ports to the commerce of the world,
Ito, though a very young man, saw what
possibilities were in store for Japan if she
made the most of the opportunities then
opened up to her. Ito was only 20 years old
when he sailed for England and the unknown
western world, determined to secure a lib
eral education and get abreast of modern
civilization in order that he might apply that
knowledge for' the good of Japan. When
he returned after several years away from
home he encouraged Japan to cultivate cor
dial relations with the United States and
all other countries and did much to discour
age the antiforeign sentiment, with which
there could have been no progress In Japan.
He realized that it was only through edu
cation that his aim could be accomplished
and he had much to do with the establish
ment of Japan's schools and colleges. Mar
quis Ito was also quick to see that much
of Japan's development must come from
close relations with the United States, and

Dr. Krame, Former Governor of Jo
liim iicsbii r»s. In Court.
London, Oct. 8. —Dr. Krause, the for
mer governor of Johannesburg, who was
arrested Sept. 2 on the charge of high
treason, was arraigned in the extradition
court at Bow street to-day and charged
with high treason and incitement to mur
der. The former charge is connected with
the surrender of Johannesburg, when, ac
cording to the public prosecutor, Dr.
Krause obtained from Lord Roberts
twenty-four hours' armi3tice on the plea
that street fighting would thereby be ob
viated, and utilized the period in getting
! all the Boer fighters out of town and in
j sending £180,000 to Pretoria. After Dr.
i Krause had been paroled he went to
Europe and applied to Dr. Leyds, the
agent of the Transvaal, for money on ac
count of these services.
The prosecution introduced letters in
which Dr. Krause described Lord Milner
as "an arch scoundrel, an enemy of Boer
national existence and a willing tool of
the jingoes," and advised the burghers to
break their oaths and shoot traitors. The
letters indicated that Dr. Krause acted as
a channel of communication between the
Transvaal and the Boer government in
Holland. The prisoner was remanded.

Miss Marion Cunningham, the Popular
Young Treasurer of the Young Woman's
Club of Emporia, Kans., has This to Say of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
" Dear Mrs. Pinkham : — Your Vegetable Compound cured me
of womb trouble from which I had been a great sufferer for nearly
three years. During that time I was very irregular and would often
have intense pain in the small of my back, and blinding headaches and
severe cramps. For three months I used Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and aches and pains are as a past memory,
while health and happiness is my daily experience now. You cer
tainly have one grateful friend in Emporia, and I have praised your
Vegetable Compound to a large number of my friends. You have
my permission to publish my testimonial in connection with my picture.
Yours sincerely, Miss Marion Cunningham, Emporia, Kans."

Japim Our Neighbor.
The marquis converses fairly well in
English ,and gave his opinions candidly.
: He said:
Japan and the United States, since the ac
quisition of the Philippines by the latter, are
near neighbors in the orient. The people of
Japan feel very friendly toward this country.
| The attitude of the United States toward U3
since the visit of Commodore Perry has Deen
mast friendly aud has been appreciated by
the Japanese. America is our greatest cus
tomer. We desire to increase our trade with
America. There is every reason why Amer
ica should increase her trade with Japan in
the future. Both countries seek to extend
their trade in the orient, but they will not
1 be fierce competitors because the products of
I the two countries are much different.
! Reciprocity will make friends for
The Japanese would regard such a treaty
with favor, but the favored nation clause i»
an element which we must consider. Japan
will increase her purchases of American flour
gradually. The better class are already be
coming partial to wheat bread. The educa
tion of the lower classes to its use will be
gradual. It will be many years before we
will manufacture flour to any extent in Ja
pan. We will increase our purchases of
American lumber, and the development of
Japanese industries moans the purchase of a
large amount of machinery In the Un.'ted
Japan's Trade Expansion.
Japan has adopted a policy of trade ex
pansion. Our present customs duties are
comparatively low. We have already taken
a stand for the integrity of China. The j
same policy that will increase the trade of
other countries with the orient will benefit

Xloaraguan canal. It would place us in still
closer touch with every part of the civilized
world. Of course, Japan would like to see a
We realize that Japan can afford to wel
come foreign capital in the development of
her industries. Her railroads, mining and
manufacturing furnish exceptionally good
avenues for the employment of foreign cap
ital and the policy of the Japanese is grow
ing gradually more liberal in this particular.
Japan's policy is to better her navy and
increase the efficiency of her army. Since the
war with China the navy has been increased
to four times 'its former size. This policy
of improvement will be continued. The army
at the time of the Chinese war had a war
footing of 200,000. Present plans include an
increase to 500.00 C.
Japan's mission is one of peace. We will
flght when we must. We are at peace with
all the world. We seek to maintain and In
crease our importance in the family of na
tions. We desire the development of our
kingdom, its resources, its industries, and
the betterment of its people. Japan reallres
that the contest among nations, like indi
viduals, is the survival of the fittest. That
means as perfect development as is possible
from every point of view. Constitutional gov
ernment was a long step forward in the
commercial and political progress of Japan.
Attitude Toward Russia.
Marquis Ito met the reference to the
predicted trouble between Japan and
Russia delicately. He reiterated that
Japan was at peace with all, that the fu
ture gave no other signs, and that Rus
sia was no exception.
This is the third visit of .the marquis
to the United States. He-says that he
came prepared to find great development,
but is more than surprised at the won
derful progress of the west. His itinerary
east of Chicago Is still unsettled beyond
his visit to the president. He wirl visit
some European countries.
T. Fujita, Japanese consul at Chicago,
met the marquis at St. Cloud, and the
program east of Chicago was discussed.
The party includes Marquis Ito, Consul
T. Fujita of Chicago, K. Tsudzatl, H.
Furuya, secretaries to the marquis; F.
Furuya, a Japanese resident of New
York, who is an old acquaintance, and
Dr. Z. Kayauna, the marquis' physician.

cities, so closely identified with the two

Convention at Baltimore Receive*
Sage Advice From Chair
Baltimore, Oct. 8. —More than 200 dele
gates from the various boards of tt*ada
and commercial bodies in the principal
cities in the United States gathered htra
to-day to discuss the public improvement
of rivers and harbors in the United States.
They will remain in session two or three
days. Twenty-five cities are represented.
The purpoße of the congress is explained
in the opening paragraph of the address
of Congressman Theodore F. Burton,
chairman of the river and harbor commit
tee in congress, who made the opening ad
dress to the delegates to-day:
I take it that the movement which led to
this convention was prompted by a desire
to awaken general interest in river and har
bor improvements and to bring the commer
cial bodies which are represented here into
closer touch with legislation upon this sub
ject. I am Informed it is not desired that
any specific project shall be advocated here,
but at the same time you consider the im
provements of the navigable channels and
ports of the country as essential for our de
velopment and that these ports and channels
require the* fostering care and assistance of
the national government. With this view it
is within your power to educate public opin
ion and to organize efforts for the enact
ment of legislation which shall be national in
its scope and for the benefit of the whole

amounts appropriated in river and harbor

even if equally deserving, when money is not
available for all, it is more businesslike to
finish one and obtain results from it than to
make piecemeal appropriations upon all.
