The Mayor then presented the tea service to Mrs. Taft.

The Secretary added that he considered Yokohama to be the rr.nnectine link, the commercial stepping stone, between America and Japan, and that conse quently the ceremony this afternoon wag partic ularly FiTnificant. While thankinsr the city for himself and for Mrs. Taft for the tea service, the Secretary said he felt that this spontaneous offering from the Japanese municipality was a manifestation of mutual recognition of the re ciprocal and pacific benefits of commerce. Ho realized al«o that residence abroad produced in Americans a broader conception of International relation" and obligations.

There was a notable gathering of Japanese officers who gained renown In the recent war, and other leaders.

(it I. — Secretary of War Taft aroused the wildest etithusiasm and loud cheers when. hi the course of his speech at the dinner Riven In his honor by the municipality of Tokio and Chamber cf Commerce last nlgnt he said that war between the United States and Japan would "be a crime agairsM modern civilization and as iricked as it would bo insane." adding that m-ither people desired it. nnd that both gov ernments would do their utmost to guard against swell an awful catastrophe. Th« Secretary apoke with Intense earnestness, hiii upeech being the result «>f careful delibera tion and preparation.

Mr. Tatt sat on the right of Viscount Shlbusawa. and Mr. O'Brien, the new American Ambassador to Japan, was seated on his left. The hall was decorated, and a good band furnished the music. Among those present were many women, including Americans. Viscount Bhlbusawa, in welcoming Mr. Tart, paid a glowing tribute ,to the greatness of the nation which the Secretary represented, the friendliness which the United States had al ways displayed for Japan and the influence which America exerted throughout the world. Replying, Mr. Taft spoke with deep feeling and positivenesa. He asserted that the talk of unfriendliness between the United States and Japan was 'duo entirely to the commercialism of the newspapers la America." The Secretary declined to discuss the immigration question, .saying that he would not trespass on the field of the State Department. Mr. O'Brien would say that the entire matter was "easy of sensi ble arrangement between sensible men." Mr. Taft said, in part: Americans will always be proud of the part President Roosevelt was able to play in hasten ing the end of the war and bringing about pi ace under circumstances honorable to' both Japan and Russia. Japan, having proved her great ness in war. ha? taken a stand in the first rank of the family of nations. You have concluded treaties with your former antagonist and the wounds caused by the war are healed. The growth of Japan, from a hermit nation to her present position, in the last fifty years, is a marvel to the world. Americans arc proud to record the fact that Japan has always had the cordial sympathy and at times the effective aid of the United States. For a moment, for a moment only, a little cloud came over the sun shine of the fast friendship of fifty years. Only the greatest earthquake of the century could have caused even the slightest tremor between such friends, Ido not intend to consider the details of the events at San Francisco. 1 cannot trespass on the Jurisdiction of the Department of State. It Is for my colleague, Mr. Koo'.. or my friend, Mr. O'Brien, to discuss this »matter. 1 say that there is nothing in these events that cannot be honorably and fully arranged, by ordinary diplo matic methods, between the two governments, conducted as they both are by statesmen of honor, sanity and justice. War between Japan and the United States would be a crime against modern civilization. It would be Insane. Neither the people of Japan nor the people or the United States desire war. The governments of the two countries would strain every point to avoid such an awful catastrophe. Neither would gain anything Japan has undertaken, with the legitimate Interest of so close a neighbor, to reform and rejuvenate the ancient kingdom that is gov erned, or misgoverned, by fifteenth century methods. His majesty the Emperor had shown his appreciation of the difficult task by sending to Corea Japan's greatest statesman. No mat ter what the reports may be, no matter what criticism may be uttered. th« world will have confidence that Prince Ito and the Japanese government are pursuing a policy in Corea which will make for justice, civilization and the welfare of a backward people. Why should Japan wish for war? It must stop or seriously delay the execution of her plans for the reform of Corea. Why should the United States wish for war? It would change her in a year or more into a military nation. Her great resources would be wasted In a vast equipment, which could serve no good purpose, but would tempt the nation into warlike policies. Why should she wish for war. in which all the evils of society flourish and all vultures fatten? She Is engaged In establishing a government of law and order in the Philippines, fitting those people by general education to govern themselves. It has been suggested that we might relieve ourselves of this burden by the sale of the Islands to Japan or some other country. The suggestion is absurd. Japan does not wish for the Philippine Islands. She has problems of a similar nature nearer home. More than this, the United States could not sell the Islands to an other power without the grossest violation of its obligations to the Philippine people. Under all these circumstances, then, could there be anything more wicked, more infamous than the suggestion of war betweea, two nations who have enjoyed such time honored friendship and who have nothing to fight for? Some one asks, why such reports and rumors of war? The. capacity of certain members of the modern press by sensational dispatches to give rise to unfounded reports has grown with the Improvement of communication between distant parts of the world. The desire to sell papers, the desire for political reasons to em barrass the existing government, or other and even less Justifiable motives, have led to mis statements, misconstructions and unfounded guesses, all worked Into terrifying headlines which have no foundation whatever In each country doubtless, there are irre sponsible persona that a war would or might make prominent who try to glv.- seriousness 10 such discussions. But when one considers the real feelings of the two peoples as a whole, when one considers the situation from the stand point of sanity and roal patriotism of each country, it is difficult to characterise in polite, moderate language, the conduct of those who are attempting to promote misunderstandings and ii! feeling between the two countries. It gives me pleasure to assure the people of Japan that the good will of the American peo ple toward Japan is '< a warm and cordial as ever. The suggestion of a breach In the ami cable relation* between them finds no confirma tion in public opinion in the United States. Mr. Taft then said it >■;■.%■•■ him great pleasure to bring this message of good will from Presi dent Roosevelt. He added he felt thai the fact that th» Japanese Emperor had for the second time honored him with an Invitation to an audi ence was due to his majesty 1 d< ire to send ■■< message of good will to the United States and show to the world thai Japan was friendly to th» American* Mr Taft sat down amid applause which clearly demonstrated that hi j :(><•■< h had made a splen did impression After the dinner the assembly room was the scene of a remarkable demonptrntion of good will, everybody congratulating everybody <->n what was considered to be a complete n moval of the 'little cloud" which had been hanging over the friendship between the United States and .la par, and rejoicing at the fact that a final damper had been put on the sensational utterances regarding the possibility of 'trained relations between the rwo countries An especially pleasing effect wan produced by the Secretary*" concluding remark about the Japanese Emperor and bin majesty's Intention to send a message of ««..) will to the United States In the course of th«- dinner lire broke out In a large building In the rear of the hotel, but, while it caused some alarm, the Incident <!id not in terfere with the entertalnmi nt STRIKE OF 70.000 AUSTRIANS Northwestern and c tate Railway Men Quit Work— Higher Wages Asked.

The whole system of repair of paving in New York City, and especially in the Borough of Manhattan, was described be foro Governor Hughes to-night by Daniel B. Qoodaell, assistant chief engineer of the bor ough. lie was called as a witness for the de fence in the matter of the charges brought by the City Club of New York against Borough President John Ahearn. The examinatioVi of Assistant Engineer Good sell was still in progress when, at 10:30 p. m., adjournment was taken until to-morrow morn ing, and may not bo finished before to-morrow night. Mr. Goodsell has been yi the Engineers' De partment of New York City for twenty-three years, having begun as a flagman in 18S4. and lie showed minute knowledge of the. working of the department. His examination was con ducted by Martin \V. Littleton, attorney for President Ahearn, and went deeply and in great detail Into the technical and financial aspects of the paving situation. George W. Tillson, chief engineeer of the Bor ough of Manhattan; Fllmore Condit. represent ative of an asphalt company, and James W. Howard, the engineer who titled all day yes terday, were the <.th.- : witnesses who testified to-day. .Mr. Tlllson's testimony consumed sev eral hours, Governor Hughes taking a promi nent part in the examination. Martin W. Littleton, leading counsel for Pres ident Ahearn, resumed this morning his cross examination of James W. Howard, the en gineer, ' ho testified all day yesterday an.l la.st evening 1 In support of the charges preferred npain.st Mr. Aheam by the city Club <•* New York. The battle between the lawyer and the wit ness began instantly this morning, Mr. Little ton forcing the witness to admit Immediately that he had approved the specifications which i-hut out Trinidad asphalt and which yester day he criticised «a giving substantially a monopoly to tho company controlling tho Ber mudez asphalt. Ho said, however, that ho favored I' as only a temporary expedient. The witness again referred to the pamphlet which he said last night showed Mr. Littleton to bo counsel for an asphalt company. "Your excellency." said the lawyer to tho Governor, "I wish this pamphlet could be put In evidence, bo that the wftness"eoald get it off his mind and answer my questions Instead of making speeches." "I don't want the pamphlet," replied the Gov ernor, "unless it is germanu to the subject of this Inquiry, but you are entitled to have your Questions answered. You are not here Mr. Wit ness, to urgue: you are here to answer the ques tions of counsel." There was a long wrangle between counsel and the witness over almost every question askod by the farmer, the Governor repeatedly directing the witness to •■••-■■ questions. "This is getting very some." said ha. George W. Tillson, present chief engineer of the Borough of Manhattan, formerly in the same office In Brooklyn; was the next witness. The Governor ho wed great Interest in his tes timony, and asked many questions. To the Gov ernor Sir. Tillson said he believed repairs to asphalt in very cold weather did more harm than good; he would stop work at -~> degrees above zero. There was nothing in the contract! which would authorize the companies to neglect repairs, even In winter, should the Borough President insist on it. "Mr. Tlllson,* 1 said the Governor, "if you were put in charge In November of the streets of a city which were In very bad condition, would you feel Justified in waiting till March before you did anything about it?" "No, sir; I don't think I would." replied the engineer. "What I want to know from you. Mr. Tillson," said Governor Hughes. "Is whether or not it Is possible to keep the streets in such repair as is demanded by the public comfort and safety, if the contractors are compelled to fulfil their contracts." The witness said be thought it was possible. Mr. Tillson flatly contradicted the witness, Mr. Howard, as to the relative weight of traffic in First find Fifth avenues Most of the. traffic on the latter, he i lid, waa of rubber tired vehicles. Th.- witness showed that tho question of finance! was one of great Importance In the matters of street repair. "The difference in traffic between Brooklyn and Manhattan is remarkable, ** said tho witness, In Brooklyn, there was little need of repair during the first years of a pavement. "Is tho lower East Sido In good repair now?" asked ibe Governor. "Pretty fair," he answered. "When you get the streets of Manhattan up to the standard you expect to have them, do you expect to have troublo In keeping them in good condition?" asked Governor Hughes. No, sir. so far as the wear and tear," witness responded. "How long will it lie before the streets of Manhattan will be up to a good standard?" "By November 1. I think." "Have, you a competent force of inspectors?" asked the Governor •l think I have." Witness told of adding four new assistants and several Inspectors to his force to supervise the work of repair. "Did you find anything in your department which needed changes except the proper super-, vision of the work of repair." "No, sir." Under the new ?ystem of Inspection and su pervision the witness said he expected the "fire burns" caused by bonfires following the pri maries of September -■• would be repair with in two weeks. Kllmore Condit, New York representative of a California asphalt company, followed Mr. Till son, and gave testimony regarding the sources of asphalt supply and the specifications under which it is laid In various cities.

The bills are computed on a basis of 510 an hour, and the Controller seems to think that $5 an hour Is high enough. The bills of Dr. Carlos P. Mac Donald. Dr. Austin Flint.

TRIALS OF AX IXTERXE. Can He Hack and Hczv After a Cold Breakfast? Robert W. Hetibard. Commissioner of Public Charities, Is to decide whether an Intern* can per form hospital duties after he has eaten ■ cold breakfast. The issue was raised by Dr. R. Spen- I cer Cone, one of the internes attached to the Kings County Hospital, who was suspended from duty I at the Bradford street branch, in Brooklyn, on Sat urday after ho had declared that Institution out of commission because the nurse in charge refused to supply hot toast with his breakfast. The wrangle over the breakfasts began when Dr. Cono took charge of the Bradford street Hospital several weeks ago. On Friday he warned Miss* Ada^fewbold, hea<l nurse of the institution, that iv would close the service unless hot toast were served- She refused to have the toast heated. ( Then Dr. Cone informed Brooklyn Police Head ; quarters that the ambulance service at the Brad j ford Street Hospital had seen temporarily discon tinued. At the same time the dispensary patients were told that the hospital had been closed until further notice. Immediately the Police Headquarters operator called on Dr. FitzGerald, the medical superin tendent cf the Kings County Hospital, for more in formation. Ha declared he had not given orders to suspend the service, and in turn he called on Dr. (.'one. Then r>r. Cone complained of the. cold breakfasts, and told of differences with the head nurse. Miss NewkeM did not reply to charges, but consented to appear before Commissioner Heb bard on Friday. When Dr. Cone was suspended from further service, pending the Investigation, he said Miss Newbold was Incompetent to manage the Institution. Commissioner Hebbard said yesterday that he hart not had an opportunity to observe the effect of a cold breakfast on the internes. He would. I however, be prepared to act on the- case when it ' cam* before him. When you £o to j>ee Fall Derbies you want to see a variety before you choose.
