' '.Legations to the Rank of Embassies.
Japan's Kznperor has Intimated his Intention of
transforming his legations at Washington. London,
f>arl«. Berlin and Vienna into full fledged em
bassies, with the object of establishing Japan's
status as a great power and cf taking a more Im
portant position In ncr relations with foreign na
tlorf . Thcr* Is no reason why she should not tsk«
this step at the close of the present war. For If
Turkey Is accorded thin privilege by the great

conflict In the Far Ea»t for the purpose of re- |
vlsir.g the rules of warfare. One of the chief re-
Itanns in view deals with tha difficult problem of
prisoners of war. The Japanese claim to have been
•objected to a very serious penalty for their vic
tories by being burdened with the responsibility of
t tending Immense numbers of the enemy's wounded
ateply because the Russians would rot be ham-

Japanese have been pet to enormous expense and
'trooDls in connection with the maintenance of tho
rart hordes of prisoners of war. for which their
jcommlssariat and transport departments were not
SSepared. There Is a talk of dealing with the prob-

eCtct that QutguerrTs death war due to a run

Osuktch a ml»ion into ths interior for th* r«-
STZ-?s 8 boar •■* lavesilsattoa I*w* that
tne death had been caused by a bullet wound In
tfce head. . When the relative* of the dead man
became acquainted with this fact they at once
brought charges of murder against the Count
Begonxae. and even went so far as to accuse him
or having shot his comrade in order that he. the
Junior member of the expedition, might reap both
the credit and the reward for the results achieved
' by the mission.
The count was arrestfd in Prance, and subjected
to a long series of harassing examinations by courts
, of inquiry, by various superior officers, and by the
: Minister of War, to whom he admitted that tho
version he had given of the death of Quiqueres was
incorrect, that the captain hai blown his brains
out in an attack of delirium tremens. and that he
had concealed the true facts of the case out of
consideration 'or the feelings of his comrade's
family. As usual, the newspapers took sid?s in the
affair, and while the Royalist press championed the
cause of the count, the Radical organs were so vio
lent In their denunciation of him as the murderer
of Qulquerez that the government had no alternfy.
tive but to keep him In prison until the matter h.-*£
been thoroughly cleared up. Jj After nearly eighteen
months In Jail, under the imputation ,of havly.g
slain his comrade in a cowardly and treacherous
fashion, the unfortunate man was sent back to St.
Louis, under nrrest. to undergo trial by court W/iar
tial there. The only witnesses were natives, and
while they all agreed that the two officers, were
constantly quarrelling while in the interior* some
ascribed the responsibility for the dispute* to the
captain and others to the count, and whereas half
the testimony went to show that the captain had
shot himself, the other evidence was to the effect
that Quiqueres ha<J been shot in a hand to hand en
counter by the count, acting In self-dc fence.
Eventually Segonzac was acquitted > though not
by a unanimous verdict, and his s*ord was re
rtored to him. But he felt the suppi'.'ion which pre
vailed with regard to his responsibility for the
death of his comrade so bitterly tr«u he demanded
and obtained his transfer to a regl'txent stationed in
the most dangerous portion of Tonquln. where at
the time FreDch troops were in almost daily con
flict with Black Flag pirates. anA with a still more
cruel enemy, the pestilential dltnate. He escaped
both, greatly distinguished hiuiself. won an addi
tional grade in the Order of the Legion of Honor,
and. returning to Europe, retired from active ser
vice, and has ever since devoted himself to the
study of African questions and of French Colonial
enterprise, on the subject of which he has becom«
a recognised expert. He has entirely lived down
all the former animosity which the Radical press
manifested toward him, and there are but few
people to-day who dream of holding him in any
way responsible for the death of Quiquerez. who.
It is only fair to add. was a man of the most quar
relsome. Jealous and Intemperate disposition.
Dr. Caracristi Believes He Has Found One

Mobile, April 4.— "Xo one must think that the
attempt to destroy the boll weevil by means of other
insects is a failure because the Guatemalan ants
failed." said Dr. C. Caracristi. who headed th« party
which returned from an exploration trip alone the
Darien Coast last week. "I believe I have discov

Then followed carriages with members of the
Loyal Legion. Grand Army of the Republic and
Confederate Veterans, acting as special escort to
! the President.;
The President arrived at the speakers' stand.
I in front of the Courthouse, at 6th and Jef-
I fer "»n sts.. at 10 a. m. He was introduced In a
• few w «rds by Governor Beckham.
, T/ne crowd around the speakers' stand waa
, limited only by the lines of buildings on the va
rious streets, and at times seemed beyond the
control of the police. Not one-fifth of those in
| sight of the President could hear his remarks.
j The President spoke less than fifteen minutes.
i He was heartily cheered.
, In introducing the President, Governor Beck
j ham said:
I Ladies and gentlemen: Not only the peo
pie or Louisville, but the people of all Ken
tucky rejoice to-day in welcoming among
us the President of this great Republic.
Regardless ot a" political differences, we are
, nerv to do honor, not only to the Chief Magis
i trate of this great country, but also to Theodore
Roosevelt the man. (Great applause.) We recog
nize his eminent patriotism, his integrity, his
l.:iri..^n<ss. and wo all believe him to be a
rnei:d of the great common people throughout
I this country. We also look forward to him dur
ing the next four years, as the ruler of this Re
; public, to obliterate the last faint line of sec
! tior.al differences that may exist in this coun
try. (Applause) I believe that it is in the
| Power of this great man who, more than any
President since the big brained and big hearted
Lincoln, holds the affection and the confidence
t of the people of this country— l say. I believe
it is more in his power than in the power of any
other man to establish beyond question the fact
t ha. there Is no North, no South, no East and
no \\ esL in this country.
As the President stepped upon tho platform
and The crowd saw him a prolonged cheer went
up. The President tried to speak, but had to
wait until the appiause died out. Then he said:
Governor Beckham. and you, my fellow Am
ericans (applause):
Surely any man would indeed be gratified to
be greeted in thi 8 way by such an audience, and
be introduced as you have introduced me. Gover
nor Beckham.
As the Governor has co well said upon all the
Important questions, the questions that infinitely
transcend mere partisan differences, we are
fundamentally one. (Applause.)
For in the question of foreign and internal
politics, the nouns upon which there can be no
proper division on party lines Infinitely exceed
m number those upon which there can be such
division, and, Governor Beckham, I shall do all
that in me lies to justify the hope to which you
have given expression and to try to show myself
the President of all the people of the United
States. (Prolonged applause.)
And. naturally, I feel particularly gratified at
seeing here to-day. Joined in this procession, the
men who wore the hlue and the men who wora.
the gray. (Laughter and applause.)
Jn the dark days— now. keep just as quiet as
you can; you won't be able to do anything more
than see me, anyhow (laughter and applause)—
in the dark days each of you fought for the
right as It was given him to see the right (a
voice: "That's right!"), and each of you has left
us the right to feel pride, not only In your valor
but in your devotion to what y->u conscientious
ly believed your duty. (Great applause.)
And new we are all one (cheers and long con
tinued applause), and as a united people we have
the right to feel the same pride in the valor of
the man who conscientiously risked his life In
the Confederate uniform, that we have in the
man who fought in the blue. (Applause.) And
as I passed by your ranks, oh, my friends in
gray, to-day and saluted the flag of our com
mon country, held up by a man in the gray
uniform, I felt that, indeed, we are one, and that
we have been able to show mankind the greatest
war of the century can he followed by the most
perfect union that any nation now knows.
And in coming to rhis great and beautiful city
of yours, l wish to congratulate you upon the"
historic spirit that is found here.
Pointing to the statue of Thomas Jefferson
that stands In front of the courthouse, the
President continued:
I am glad, as I say, of the spirit that makes
you wish to dedicate statues like this of Jeffer
son, and like the great statue of Clay inside of
this courthouse. It Is a fine thing to keep to a
sense of historic continuity with the past, and
there is one statue that I wish the members
Jn the National Congress from Kentucky
to see is put up by the national govern
ment, and that if a national statue to An
drew Jackson and the victors of the baitle
of New-Orleans. The tight at New-Orleans was
one in which the whole nation has a care, as
far as the glory and the profit went, and' the
whole nation, and not any one State, should
Join in putting that statue up.
Now. 1 am KOing to say goodby, because there
Is a little movement there, and it will be better
for the women and the small people if I let you
get away. Ooodby.
As the President descended to the platform
from the speakers' stand the voices of two male
German singing societies burst forth with the
strains of "My Old Kentucky Home," the Presi
dent remaining uncovered until the famous
song had been continued. Then he spoke to
■ingera as follows:
Gentlemen: I w&nt to thank you for coming
here to sing to-day, and I want to say just one
thing suggested by your presence. We, as a
people, ar-- composed of many different stocks
from the Old World. Each stock ran contribute
something of great value to our national life.
The people <-f German origin who have come
here h.-i\- contributed much in many different
■rays, and not the least of what they have con
tributed hns been the power to know what the
joy of living means. (Applause). There is one
■word I wish it wor- possible to translate; but, as
It is not possible, I wish we could adopt it abso
lutely as it is — "Gemtttnlichkeit" — for gemtith
lichkeit is a mighty valuable asset. I only hope
as missionaries you will be able to teach us
what it means and how to practise it all through.
Goodby. (Laughter.)
The President and party then entered their
carriages, and after a short drive through sev
eral streets in the business district arrived at
the Louisville Hotel. The streets were massed
with people, and the President stood up in his
carriage, bowing from right to left in response
to the cheering which was hearty and contin
In the parlors of the hotel occurred one of the
prettiest incidents o/ the day— the presentation
of souvenirs to the Executive. These consisted
of a massive silver flagon containing water from
a spring on the old Lincoln homestead in Larue
County; an inkstand of oak, taken from a tree
that shaded the spring at which Lincoln drank
when a lad. and a beautiful silver vase filled
with orchids. The President was visibly touched
by the gifts. The presentation was made by
Colonel R. T. Durrett, for twenty years a friend
of the President and in whose library Mr. Roose
velt, years ago, spent many hours reading the
history of Kentucky and gaining data of the
Lewis and Clark expedition. The group sur
rounding the President when the presentation
was made included Governor Beckham, Senator
McCreary, Congressman Sh'rley, Hon. Logan C.
Murray and a few invited guests, numbering al
together not more than fifty. The President
made a feeling response, saying that he felt
more than ever that he waa the President of all
the people— North and South. East and West.
A hurried departure was taken, the President
arriving on board his train at exactly 11 o'clock.
A minute later, witn the Executive standing on
the rear platform of the car. with cannon thun
dering a farewell salute less than a block away
and to tho music of deafening cheers, the train
moved out of 7th-st. station, and a half hour
later was spt-eding across Indiana on its way to
the Southwest.
Huntlngburg. Ind.. AprU 4 —At Milltown, Ind.,
the first stop out of Louisville, a large gathering
of workingmen greeted President Roosevelt. The
stop waa made In order to take on water, and the
people of Milltown took advantage of the short
stay when the train slowed down. A gray
bearded patriarch pointed out the President and
introduced him aa "the greatest dignitary on
earth "
Toe President shook bands with a number of
those who pressed about the ear. and addressed
the assembly, saying:
I am very glad to have the pleasure of seeing
you and saying a word of greeting to you. It
cannot but be pleasant to any President to have
the chance of going through the country and
meeting his fellow countrymen and being greeted
as you have greeted me. lam glad to see you
all— the men, the women and the children. I
am glad to see here and wherever I go the
type of man. which I believe makes for th«
future welfare of this country; the man and the
woman who believe in doing their duty. In facing
life, knowing that life has In it any amount that
is hard, but who are going to do their best to
make things right for themselves and for their
neighborß. There Is not anything very difficult
in government. It Is simply the applying of cer
tain common sense principles that we appiy
among ourselves. The man who Is a decent mar.
will be a decent husband, a decent father, a
decent neighbor, and in public life he will do the
right thing.

Boston, April The committee of Congrega
tional clerirymen who are protesting against the
acceptance by the American Board of Commis
sioners for Foreign Missions of John D. Rocke
feller's gift of $100,000 will have to conduct their
crusiul» unassisted by the prudential committee of
the American Board. After a protracted confer
ence to-day between representatives of the pro
testing clergymen's committee and three members
of the prudential committee the latter refused ab
soltely to join the protesiants in their movement
to bring before the Congregational clergy of the
co.mtry the reasons advanced for or against the
acceptance of the gift.
The conference to-day was held at Congrega
tional House, the headquarters of the American
Board. Previous to the meeting the represent
atives of the protesting committee held a meeting
at which it was decided to ask the prudential com
mittee to i=«=ue a joint statement concerning the
circumstances ot the gift and the reasons for its
rejection or acceptance.
.ftepresenivtives o f the two committees then
came together. Those who were delegated by the
protesting- committee were the Rev. Daniel Evans.
of Cambridge; the Rev. C. A. Carter, of Lexington
and the Rev. C. I-. Noyes. of Somervllle. ■ The
prudential committee was represented by the Rev
F. O. Winslow. of Maiden; Samuel B. Capen. of
this city, and Professor Edward C. Moore, of the
Harvard Divinity School. The conference lasted
nearly five hours, and at adjournment the con
ferrees declined to discuss the proceedings. It
was learned, however, that the prudential com
mittee had refused to issue any statement jointly
with the protesting committee. The protestants
will continue the agitation independently, it was
announced that a statement would b« prepared im
mediately petting forth their side of the contro
versy and opposing unqualifiedly the acceptance of
Mr. Rockefeller's money. This statement will he
Issued in circular form and sent to each nv^Jtber
of the American Board and to every Congregational
clergyman in the I'nited States.
At a late hour to-night the committee of protest
ing clergymen completed its statement, which will
be printed and sent broadcast to-morrow. After
reciting the history of the controversy, the state
ment says, under the caption "The Main Issue":
The protest rests on the conviction that the
Church must not stand In compromising relation to
a man who in puhlic thought represents methods
that are opprensive, dangerous and wrong. \\>
cannot disregard the effect of the association which
Us name, in view of facts that are widespread and
notorious, unfortunately carries with it. The
Church cannot afford to enter into any relation
that may weaken or discredit it in the fulfilment of
its task. The main question is one of the moral
prestige and power of the Church.
All the confusion arising_Jrom the literal use of
the figure "tainted money" may be brushed aside
at once. Mon<?y is impersonal; it is not tainted and
cannot taint morally. It is by voluntary rela
tion to the donors that moral responsibility is in
curred. With the unknown or unimpeached giver
the Church is brought Into no such conscious and
deliberate relation. The refusal of a gift from
such a source as this in question does not Imply
"Investigation of the record of every giver." and
this whole practical difficulty which has been al
lowed to obstruct our fulfilment of the obvious
duty of the moment falls to the ground as ficti
The Church owes it to itself and the public con
science to acknowledge rej-JKmsibillty when it vol
untarily enters into dealings with a donor who
stands openly impeached of serious offences which
i: is our duty to condemn. It is not required that
the < "hurch form a tribunal to pass Judgment on
personal character or probe into the business
methods of all givers. Such examination is not
necessary in refusing a gift. Public belief has
expression, formed on extensive evidence through
a long series of years, and furnishes sufficient basis
for fuch action. This works no "injustice to an
Individual" by "singling him out" among others
suspected of heiiift "as bad as he." It is his
own actions which have already singled him out
before the world as a notorious and tvpieal in
stance of an evil element in our national life.
However formidable may be the practical difficul
ties in the way of exercising thi3 responsibility
they must not obscure the ethical demand. The
balancing of prudential considerations can only be
a halfway station i:i the consideration of any moral
question. Where shall we begin, if not with the
most conspicuous case that has y"et been reported
to our Church.
Where we must end is shown by the answer of
the prudential committee. We must end in the
declaration of complete Irresponsibility for the
sources from which we accept gifts. Their words
are: "The principle on which this policy rests is the
belief that our responsibility begins with the re
ceipt of the gift. . . . Before gifts are received ;
the responsibility is not ours, but is that of donors
in their own conscience."
We believe that the Church will never rest in
this principle. It has not done so in the past. By
many acts and utterances the Church has declared
its right and duty to descriminate. among donors.
i The principal ;tseif is vicious t.nd corrupting, and
! it is impossible in practice. We cannot acquit our
selves of responsibility in receiving money, for we
do m-oducp a moral effect. "Money talks," and
the board has done much in the past to give it a
: Over against this position we urge the positive
principle, in application to this specific case. This
requires that the representatives of a Christian !
body be peculiarly sensitive to the moral bearing j
of gifts offere 1. and especially to the social effect ,
arising from their acceptance. Tf. from any cause, |
the proposed relation promises to bring embarrass
ment. refuHal to enter it is justified by the la.w of |
self-respect. A Christian corporation has a char
acter which it may not compromise l>y doubtful
alliar«es. •
The application of this principle was never so
much needed as now. The Church nnds itself in
danger of losing its moral leadership. It cannot be
blind to the growing alienation between those who
have and those who have not. Its message is to
the entire human family, and a deepening sense of
social obligation has touched its ijeart. And not j
only human fellowship, but the interests of I
righteousness are at stake in the problems of trade, j
The battle is on between forces that are socially
destructive and those that seek a finer order of
justice and human opportunity. There is no ques
tion on which side of this contest the Church
should stand. It is necessary for it to be exceed
ingly jealous of anything that may swerve it from
ltd own task. Every act must be avoided that
seems to ally the Church with the wrong side, to
impede its action or to render its efforts and utter
ances Ineffectual.
The motives which constrain us to this appeal are
a deep solicitude because of the corporate evils
that threaten our nation, our sense of the solemn
and imperative mission of the Church a th« moral
educator of the people, and a jealous zeal lest its
energy and authority be Impaired by any seeming
compromise with the evil it is set to condemn. By
the convergence of these motives upon this special
case now brought before us as a Church, it is lifted
Into commanding importance and our decision is
fraught with momentous and far reaching con
sequences. •:-
London. April 5.-H. B. Irving, the first of sev
eral new Hamlets announced for the present Lon
don theatrical season, had a pronounced triumph
at the Adelphi last night, and commands critical
discussion in the morning newspapers on a larger
scale than wi/ild be extended to a new play by a
foremost writer. Modelled to a considerable ex
tent on his fathers conception, but without his
father's striking genius, Mr. Irving nevertheless
surprised even his admirers by the strength and
originality of his rendering, and his Hamlet is
classed by the critics as worthy to be counted
among the test half dozen Hamlets of the modern
period. His conception of the part is character
ized by great virill.y rather than by dreaminess—
«n objective rather than a eubjective «tjidy. So m «

So J. P. Archibald Declare* of Com

Conpulsor*- arbitration waa unefer dsisssliiii yss
terday at h« meeting of the Civic Federation In
the rooms o* the Board of Trade. The recent strike
on the Interborough received considerable atten
tion. James P. Archibald said:
Despite the earner apprehension of tne contmlttee.
the outcome of the strike was In reality a victory
for the principle of trad asTeementa anil a demon
stration of the respect for their Inviolability Khlch
animates national organizations of labor. /
Mr. Archibald was Introduced as a representative
of the labor side. He said that compulsory arbitra
tion tender*, directly toward socialism, for If either
side should refuse to work the state would have to
carry on the business I! its continuance were neces
«nry to public welfare. He declared compulsory
arbitration unnecessary. He said that the normal
condition of Industry Is peace, not war. as some
would have It appear. Continulcg, he declared:
There has existed in Russia for generations an
ornetrhoioir.g bureaucracy whose function is thai
of an industrial judiciary. Against industrial ad
justraint by this but*aucmcy It was a crime for
workers to organize for appeal. The result waa the

Everett P. Wheeler said that compulsory arbitra
tion was entirely practicable. He would have the

to arbitration before declaring a strike.
August Beimont rl*v?larf><l tnat tne Interborough
was friendly toward organized labor, but could not
arbitrate till both parties could be h*-ld re»ponisb>
for results. Kx-Mayor Low and Bis>hop Potter both
spoke in favor of compulsory arbitration.

New-Haven. Conn., April 4. -Judge a L. Bronson.

the defendant in a suit for $1,300,004 damages which
has been returned to the April term of the Superior
The action is brought by Miss Susan Bronson. of
Waterbury. an aunt of the defendant, who alleges
that as her agent and attorney for ten years prior
to September. 1904, the plaintiff failed to make an
accounting of the affairs of her estate, which she
believes to have been worth at the time it was put
into his hands about J500.000. This, with the moneys
accumulated during the time he has had the prop

claimed in damages.
The complainant says that stock in certain na

stands In the name of the defendant on the books
of the banks and corporations, having been trans

though the defendant, says the complainant, had no
legal or equitable right therein.
