NEW TRIAL OF CROFT CASE
Difficult to Get an Impartial Jury in
'The Rock Island railroad, according
to advices from Muscatine, has asked
f:r a change of venue for the retrial
of the Croft case, in w hich a jury gave
Mrs. Croft $28,000 and Judge Barker
decided that the railroad company was
entitled to a new trial unless the Crofts
would allow the scaling of the verdict
to $12.0it). It is now alleged that it is
difficult to get an impartial jury in
Muscatine owing to the several trials
of the Croft cases there and prejudice
against the defendant. In case the
change is granted the place of trial
would probably be Davenport, as t he
nearest court in the district.

EFFECT ON FAR EAST WAR
Japanese Consul Talks of Disturbance
New York, Jan. 25. S. I'chida. the
Japanese consul general, this morning
made the following statement regard
ing the Russian disturbance:
"Before I could make any definite es
timate as to what effect the present
disturbance in Russia will have on the
war in the far east. I will have to wait
for two or three days. If the Russian
imperial government succeeds in over
powering and putting down the insur
rection in a few days, it will have no
effect at all.
"On the other hand, if the disturb
ance is continued and the workingmen
of Russia desert the shipyards, arsen
als, powder factories and all industries
that furnish the sinews of war, then it
will prove a great factor.
"Russia is in no condition to fight
two wars at once. She is not strong
enough to fight Japan in Manchuria
and put down a revolution within her
laughingly. Mr. I'chida said that he
wortiU-recf it ' Kuropatkiii and his sol

"do not realize what this revolution

French people, who are holding largo

panic Is liable to follow, and the prico
of the bonds will drop rapidly, ruining
large numbers of small French trade.

Mr. I'chida also said, in replying to
"Japan seems to 1m: wanting for no
