Johnson Gives His Preparedness Views Congressman Johnson Gives Out His Views on Pending National Legislation. Before leaving for Washington Mr Johnson was quoted as follows by th Aberdeen Daily News: "Representative Royal C\ Johnson who took his seat in the lower house of congress today, promised the News a statement regarding his views of ponding legislation In congress. Ac. cordingly today the News received the following statement from the congressman, which it takes pleasure In presenting to its readers: 'As to preparedness, will say that I am not ready to commit myself to the administration's plan, until it Is worked out in the form of a statute and its different provisions made plain In my opinion the nary should be in creased until It occupies socond plact among the navies of the, world, for In no other way will the United States be enabled to protect its citizens and its foreign commerce. The presorn standing army is not oven an efficient police force and should be increased to a number sufficient to man the coast defenses and furnish an ade quate first line of defense. I question the so-called continental army plan anci believe the second line of defense should be taken care of by legislation which will increase the efficiency of the National Guard and through that organization provision should be made for the training of our citizens. 'On social and moral questions, I believe the final decision should be given to the citizens of the United States, and, for this reason, I shall vote for the amendments to the feder al constitution allowing the people or the various states to say whether or not they desire prohibition and equal suffrage. I expect to give my active support to any legislation which will establish a system of rural credits. The people of South Dakota, however, will be given an opportunity to ex press themselves as to rural credits by voting for a constitutional amend ment submitted by the last legisla ture, and an affirmative vote by the people of the state on that amend ment will enable the state tu establish ac omprehensive system, regardless of the action taken by congress. South Dakota has sufficient resources and credit to establish such a system without waiting for action by the fed edal government."

Developments of what appear now to have been ah atrocious murder in Minneapolis stim ulate a sentiment against the existing state law which never has been con tent with its results.'

Among foreigners generally Yuan Shi Kai was given credit for as able an administration as could be expected under the circumstances. Long before Yuan Shi Kai was widely known abroad he had been ac cepted by the Manchus, the Chinese, and the foreigners in China as a com ing man. Born in 1859, the son of a district governor in the province of Honon, Yuan Shi Kai aspired to an official position, but the rule was that official life was open to those who passed In ancient classics. Yuan failed in one of these government tests. •vl|W5fi Army Rank. He Went into Korea as a secretary with the army, and there rose rapidly through bis display of military and diplomatic ability.

The Dowager appointed him governor of Shantung when, during the Boxer re bellion, he displayed his astuteness. Declined to Join Boxers. Invited to join the Boxer section, he agreed if its leaders would prove to him their contention that those of their sect were immune to foreign bul lets. He told them that if the lead ers would meet him in his garmen the next day he would try the "foreign devils' magic" on them. One leader submitted to the test, and fell dead at the first rifle bullet, which pierced his heart.
