KILLS HIS WIFE, TWO
Wisconsin Farmer Commits
Barron, Wis., Aug. 9.While crazed
over religion Christ Hanson, a wealthy
farmer living near Cameron, cut the
throats of his wife and two daugh

spectively, and then hanged himself
in his barn.
The quadruple crime was discov
ered by other children of Hanson
when they returned from a berrying
Hanson had lived near Barron for a
number of years, but recently he
moved to a farm near Cameron, after
selling his farm near this place for
$3,000 less than he had been offered.
At that time comment was caused
and some of his friends began to en
tertain doubts of his sanity, but noth
ing was done.
Recently Hanson Is said to have
spent most of his time in reading on
religious topics and he gradually con
ceived the idea that it was his duty
to end his life and those of the other
members of his family.

road in Manchuria,
Tokio Government Issues Instructions
to Proceed With the Work, for
Which Preparations Had Been Made
Some Months AgoRelations Be
tween the Two Countries Consid
ered Seriously Strained.
Peking, Aug. 9.In defiance of the
protestations of China Japan has be
gun the construction of the Antung
Mukden railroad. Simultaneously at
each end of the line the work was
started by Japanese engineers and
constructors, who for several months
have been awaiting the outcome of
the negotiations. The action was the
result of instructions from Tokio.
The feeling of Japan in this matter,
which is due to China's objection to
changing tho existing narrow gauge
of the line to the standard gauge of
the connecting lines in both Korea
and Manchuria, was reflected here by
a Japanese official of high standing,
who said that China-Japanese rela
tions at the present moment bore a
dangerous resemblance to those of
That a vital difference exists be
tween China and Japan is shown by
the respective statements made to
England by the Japanese government
and Sir Julian Jordan, the English
minister at Peking. The Japanese
contend Japan is entitled to recon
struct the railway under the treaty of
1905 and attribute China's attitude to
the reactionary tendency of Prince
Ching, the regent. Minister Jordan
sends word that the Chinese govern
ment has informed him that the An
tung-Mukden road will be commer
cially useless to Japan and is being
built purely for military purposes and
to be used as a club to extort conces
sions from China.
JAPAN'S ACTION JUSTIFIED
Britons Say No Other Course Was
London, Aug. 9.The decision
reached by Japan regarding the con
struction of the Antung-Mukden rail
road, in spite of the objections of
China, Is generally considered here to
be justified. Before taking the step
Japan consulted Great Britain and the
other powers with whom Japan's re
lations are close. Great Britain, while
regretting that her ally found it nec
essary to defy China, agreed that Ja
pan had no alternative. There has
been no endeavor to deny that this
line is mainly of military importance,
but as one diplomat put it:
"Japan would be more than human
If she did not avail herself of her
treaty rights, especially as these are
one of the few solid compensations for
the heavy sacrifices of her war with
The South Manchurian Railroad
company, which, on account of the

company's traffic from Dalny to Fu

Gayco, Mo., Aug. 9.The town of

was set on fire by robbers. At one
time It appeared as though the entire
town would burn. An automobile load
of dynamite was rushed there to de
molish buildings and check the flames.
