ington. Washington, June 30. Assistant Sec
retary Net tie ton ban decided that the two
Japanese men imported by Mr. Woolf, of
Chicago, must be returned to Japan. The
facts show that Mr. Woolf imported from
Japan two vehicles known there as jinrik
shas aiid two Japanese men to propel
them by hand, his intention being to
place them in the public parks of Chicago
far the purpose of hauling children free of
charge, lie agreed to give the men t-O
each per month for a period of six months.
Mr. Woolf is in the clothing business and
Special Agent Stitch intimates that it
might be an artless way Mr. Woolf had of
benefiting his business.
Grounds of the Decision.
Assistant Secretary Xettleton in reach
ing his decision rays the enterprise as far
as known is a new one in this country, but
can hardly be called a new industry; nor
would it seemingly be necessary to import
"skilled labor'' to propel jinrikshas. Mr.
Woolf is therefore held to have violated
the alien contract labor law, but as he has
declared that he had no such intention. As
sistant Secretary Xettleton says if the men
are sent hack to Japan Mr. Woolf will not

A Hooaier Family Makes Itself Very
Much at Home.
Washington, June 30. Yesterday morn
ing a scraggy, unkempt old yeoman with
a patriarchal beard, in which the rich,
bracing w-jstern zephyrs still lingered, and
boots which bore a complexion of ochre,
entered the Kast room of the White House,
leading his wife and three daughters. A
few minutes afterword the mother and
daughters had arranged a nice little do
mestic circle with chairs and the old coun
tryman had spread himself out upon the
richly upholstered sofa.
Prepared to Eat Their Lunch.
Callers at the house passed tbe party
with suppressed laughter or elevated
nasal organs and the doorkeepers were
Cudgeling their brains as to the best
means of removing them, when they were
bewildered by hearing the old gentleman
direct one of the girls to open the lunch
banket and spread dinner on a newspaper
which be had laid upon the floor. This
was the deci&ive straw on the doorkeepers'
endurance. Que of them spoke to the

fcWeIl, we won't hurt your floor," said
the weJi-njcauiug old lady, and being as
sured that it was a flagrant violation of
the rules, the old man broke out: "Well, if
Ben Harrison has grown so big since he
came to the White House that he won't
allow a Hoosier to even eat on his floor,
why, then, I'm done with him, and you
may tell him so."
Trying to See the President.
The old gentleman added to one who
Questioned him: -My name is William
Shultz and I live near Kecksville, Daviess
county, Ind. I voted for Ben Harrison
and my father voted for old Tippecanoe.
We've been tryitf for three days to see the
president, but they told us he wasn't in.
We've been visitin' in North Carolina and
came through Washington on purpose to

HARRISON AND GRESHAM,
What Governor Morton's Sun Thinks of
Their Comparative Strength.
Washington, June 30 Oliver T. Mor
ton, of Indianapolis, son of the late Sena
tor Oliver P. Morton, is among the latest
arrivals here. Being prominent among
the young Republicans of Indiana, and a
close friend of Judge Gresham, Mr. Mor
ton was asked yesterday about the anti
Harrison and pro-Gresham movement in
the state that is now being talked about.
He said: "Harrison is no stronger than his
party. It is too far from the election to
judge what the character of tbe delegation
will be. It is still a matter of doubt yet to
'o Man Has the State Yet.
"You say that Harrison is no stronger
than his party in Indiana. Do you think
Mr. Morton hesitated about replying to
this, but finally said: "To be frank, I
thiak he is. Judge Gresham has lost none
of fans strength in tbe state, and, perhaps,
has gained considerable. I do not know
that Judge Gresham is thinking about tbe
presidency. He has said nothing to me
boot it. As to tbe general situation," he
added, "i think it may be set down as cer
tain that no man yet has tbe state. There
may or may not be opposition to Mr.
Harrison later on."
