CONFERENCE ON THECANTON-
CHINA WANTS TO BUY IT
Proposition Is That Transfer of the
Property and Concession Be
Made for Seven Mil

By Associated Press.
OYSTER BAY, Aug. 28.— J. Pierpont
Morgan had an extended conference to
day with President Roosevelt. The con
ference related to matter's pertaining to
the Canton-Hankow railroad in China
and its probable disposition Iby the
present .owners and the American-
China- Japanese company. • The firm of
J. P. Morgan & Co. practically controls
the road and its concessions.
Mr. Morgan visited the president sev
eral weeks ago on a mlslson similar to
that of today. Subsequently Sir Cheng
Tungr Liang Cheng, the Chinese minis
ter, had a conference with the presi
dent on the same subject. No definite
disclosures were made regarding either
of the conferences.
The Chinese government has proposed
to the American-China Development
company that it sell the road and its
concessions to China, the price gener
ally regarded as close to the cost, the
precise figure being $7,000,000. . So
far as can be learned -the directors of
the company have not passed finally
upon the offer of the Chinese govern
ment. It is said to be the intention of
the. directors to hold a meeting tomor
row In Jersey City, the American-China
Development company being a New
Jersey corporation, and it is likely that
at that meeting the question of the dis
position of the road will be determined

on his steam yacht Corsair shortly be

obtainable, he was conveyed in a launch

There Mr. Morgan and his friend were
guests of the president and Mrs. Roose
velt. They remained with the president
until nearly 3 o'clock/returning then
to the Corsair, which sailed soon after
they went' aboard. It can be said
positively that the conference had no
relation to the pending peace negotia

Thomas F. . Ryan Made Sure of His
First Promising Job
Thomas F. Ryan, who paid $2,600,000
for the privilege of trying to' re
establish the Equitable Insurance com
pany, was a lad of 14 living with his
grandmother In Virginia when the civil
war ended. The estate had been devas
tated and there was not enough hoe
cake to go around. Consequently the
boy had to go forth after the American
fashion to seek his fortune.
The great city in his Imagination was
Baltimore, and thither he journeyed as
cheaply as possible. . Having no friends
or letters to friends of friends in the
city, there was nothing to do but find
a Job for himself.; Day. followed day
with no effect other than tired legs and
feet aching from contact with unaccus
tomed pavements. , Finally, with his
last quarter In his pocket, he. found a
"boy wanted" sign In the window of a
drygoods store, and went in. , .
Fortunately the place was! open, and
the manager ; promised to give him a
trial for. one week at $3 per week. "Re
port at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning,"
was the cheering dictum, but hardly ut
tered before, the youngster had hung
his cap upon a convenient hook. "If
you are willing," he said, respectftily
enough, "I would rather begin now. I
won't charge anything for today, • but I
don't want to take any chances." Those
who have been familiar with his subse
quent career think the trait thus indi
cated has been distinguishable to the

WASHINGTON, Aug. 28.— 1n his an
nual report for the department of
Colorado which has Just been/ received
at the war department," Brigadier Gen
eral William S. McCaskey, command
ing, recommends among other things
the re-establlshment of .-the canteen
feature of the post exchanges and also
additional prizes for marksmanship.
Gen. ( McCaskey states that during the
past year strong effort has been made
to stop the sale and Improper disposi
tion of mlllitary clothing by enlisted
men and that trials.. before. 'United
States courts of, civilians charged. with
buying arms, ammunition and clothing
from soldiers have not resulted In con
victions. He makes the! recommenla
tlon that uniform clothing should bo so
marked that ■no question ! could , arise
as to Its issue by. the government and
upon the discharge ol ,the- soldier, or
If for any other cause he became sepa
rated from the service, the clothing be
purchased by the government and de
stroyed. In view of the' fact that large
bodies of . troops are constantly travel-
Ing to and from the Pacific coast. Gen
eral McCaskey recommends * that a
standard kitchen car for. command not
less In size than a battalion' should be
adopted, so as to enable the, troops to
be subsisted on the regular garrison
ration and with much greater comfort
and convenience than. at present.""*' ' ;
The following recommendations as to
athletics are concurred in by Gen.. Me-
Caskey: ' •.-■■• ■■■'■;■•?'■■■. ' i
"That there be three post field days
