Official* Shore Hearty Appreciation of Americas Policy. shanghai. < " >ct - B 11m will J Taft and the member? of his party arrived here to-day from the steamer Minnesota, -which Is conveying him from Japan to Manila. The Chinese and the foreign residents of Shanghai united in giving tin distinguished visitor the heartiest welcome that ever has been extended to a foreign states man. - afternoon Mr. Taft dedicated the local building of the Young Men's Christian Associa tion. He made a brief address in which he said the work of the asoclation among the Chinese was a great step In the Interests of c;\ ilizstion. and he was followed by several Chinese officiate, who spoke In approval of the undertaking. At 4 o'clock Tills afternoon the Secretary was the guest of honor at a' reception given by the Chinese residents. This entertainment was in a native garden. The decorations were pletur rtque, embroidered banners and a multitude of Chinese lanterns making the garden look like fairyland. The promoters of the reception v. .re prominent Chinese merchants, represent ing forty-five of the guilds formerly in the boy cott mori m< tit against American manufactures. The change of sentiment to-day was marked. A number of prominent Chinese officials \wr" present. Speeches of welcome were made in English, by local Chinese business men, officials and the representative of the Viceroy. The Chinamen emphasized the cordial relations existing to- day between China and the United f=- ites, saying that the friendship of America had been evidenced by sending relief to the fam ine sufferers, the Bupport of seho. .ls and hos pitals and the waiving; by the United States <<t her part of the Boxer Indemnity. in reply. Secretary Taft thanked the Chinese for their reception, which, he said, gratified him an evidence of their friendship towtvrd the American people and government. At the con clusion of his address a silver punchbowl was presented to the Secretary- This reception marked an epoch in the status of women in China, for to-day Chinese women of aristocratic families: were present and even presided at the tables, where they served refreshments. This is the first time such ■ thing has happened in China, This Chinese welcome to the American visitor was most significant, and the merchants and high officials present contrasted it with Mr. Taft'a forner visit to Shanghai and tho days of the American boycott. CHIKE6E-AMEBICAN RELATIONS The American residents pave a dinner tn th« ■BCntsry*S honor this evening. At this enter tainment the foreign consuls and a number "f prominent foreign business men were present. It was fhe larp.Kt and most representative din ner ever given In Shanghai. In reply to an a.l dr<^s of welcome Secretary Taft made a spe< eh which was listened to with deep interest. He prefaced his remarks by sayint* that he ppoke as an American citizen, not as a represent ative of the government. H<> renewed his assur ances that the T'nJted Statrs had no intention of filing the Philippine Islands, saying that the country was fn honor bound to retain them or give the- Filipinos their independence. He praised the Islands and their inhabitants, and t!>n turned his attention to the open door in China. American trade, said Mr. Taft, was now sec ond In China, and certain branches of this trade were sufficiently important to make it incum bent on the American government to listen to the- protest of every legitimate business man against diminution of or injury to this business or political preferment fo.r any competitor. "We do not complain," the Secretary continued, "of loss of trade that results from the employ ment of greater enterprise, ingenuity or atten tion to the demands of the Chinese market, or the greater business acumen shown by our com petitors. 'VO would have the right to protest it being excluded from the trad« of China by reason of our insistence upon th« policy of tho open door. "The acquiescence in this policy of all the na tions Interested has been so unhesitating and emphatic that It la hardly worth while to spec slate upon the probable action of the United States In case the interests of American mer chants were placed in jeopardy, and how far the United States would go In the protection of Its RMwa trade I cannot pay. It Is clear, how ever, that our merchants are being roused to the Importance of the Chines* export trade, and they would view with deep concern any and all political obstacles to Its maintenance and ex pansion. This feeling is likely to find expres sion in the action of the American government. IMPORTANCE OF TRADE WITH CHINA. "American manufacturers to-day do not take ?v? v trouble to pack their goods properly or send then out in the sizes desired by the Chi nese, but this stiffnecked lack of business sense Is disappearing slowly, and our merchants are becoming aroused to the importance of this trade, which has grown without government en couragement and which has a sure future. There Is no reason to complain of this govern mental Indifference. The United Stated and the oth?r powers favor the open door, and if they are wise they will encourage the empire to take long steps in administrative and governmental reform, the development of the resources of China and the improvement of the welfare of th»> people. To do this will add to China's strength and position as a self-respecting gov ernment and aid her in preparing to resist pos sible foreign aggression in the seeking of undue. «n<i exclusive proprietary privileges. Thus no foreign aid will be required to enforce the open door and the policy of equal opportunity for all " The Secretary said that the gold standard for China would redound to the benefit of the em pire, and that the cry of "China for the Chi nese" need not frighten any man. Ho said that the Chinese should devote their energies to the development of the country's resources, the ele vation of the people, the enlargement of trade B nd j administrative reform, and that these, changes would Increase America's trade. Radi os! and sudden reforms he believed to be un wise, saying that these must come gradually. Every Improvement aimed at had the deep sym pathy of America. There was no Jealousy to fear on account of China's development fro; » the United States, but this, progress must be directed always alorg the lines of peaceful prosperity, the maintenance of law and order and the proper observance of the rights of foreigners. DESIRE FOR EMPIRE'S WELFARE. "China has no territory we desire," Mr. Taft went on, "and she can have no prosperity that We -will begrudge, nor will we resent any degree Continued on third pa«e A NEW BUFFALO TRAIN. ►uui£«* h ? r * I'l'nltc-d-stops principal intermediate *« a m !'

The prospects are good for fine weather to-morrow. • The Ifetcalf brothers, famous hunters of Greenville, Miss., and friends of John If. Parker, the President's host, have Joined the party. They brought dogs with them, so that there are now forty-five do^s with the President's hunting party.

Abbott of Brie ■.. waa bitterly fought, and ended In a ver dld of not gnllty after ■ lout: trial. Special Inter est was lent to the trial ending to-. lav with a simi lar verdict, by the fact that William B.

During the trial to-day Mr. shir.-, for the de fence, took exception to the prosecuting attorney making stat< I •■' certain notea were never paid. A sharp colloquy ensued between Mr and Mr Killeen, of the prosecution. Mr. Bhlre walked to a place Just behind Attorney General Jackson ami remarked, m a low voice-. ••This is the most disreputable piece of 1 ' ; a prosecuting officer attempt.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1907.-FOURTEEX WOJST REPAIR STREETS, BREAKS CITY CONTRACTS. Asphalt Trust Would Forfeit $150,~ 000 Rather than Do Work. Acting Borough President Henry S. Thompson hus received word from L. Uifliri Kellogg, coun sel for the Barber Asphalt Company, that his company abandons all the maintenance con tracts for twenty-seven streets in Manhattan. The company says it will lose money by main taining the streets in repair. Mr. Thompson has asked the Corporation Counsel for advice, requesting him at the same, time to force the company to live up to it* contracts. When h street in the city is paved with asphalt the contract contains a provision that the company doing: the work shall maintain th.: asphalt in Rood repair for a certain time, usually for ten years. The Barber Asphalt Company, known generally as the Asphalt Trust, has ab sorbed a number of smaller companies and. be sides, has a number of constituent companies. The contracts these companies had with the city to maintain asphalt pavements were taken over by the Barber company, among: them being twenty-seven from the Fruin-Barabrick Comp any. Since succeeding William Dalton as Commis sioner of Public Works Mr. Thompson, who for a good part of the time has been acting l?or ougfc President, has tried to force all the com panies In Manhattan having maintenance con tracts with the city to get down to work and do all the repairing they had contracted to do. He has kept them at the job so well that many have vigorously protested that tb< j were being crowded. The Barber int. rests have cried out as loudly as any of the companies. But no con cessions were obtained from the Commissioner of Public Works, who had in mind the charges made against the Borough President to Gov ernor Hughes and th-- allegations of many or ganizations and citizens that the street-- were in worse repair than at any time !n the history of the city and that no attempt had been mad.; to maintain them or t. force the companies to repair them. The Barber company, a few days nso. in formed Commissioner Thompson that if it had to maintain the asphalt pavement It had laid a deficit for the year would result. Yesterday it abandoned all the contracts received from the Fruln-Batnbrick company. In doing so It forfeits $150,000 and win undoubtedly be obliged to thrash the question out In court. To insure the carrying out of tho contracts the city retains from asphalt companies certain amounts •>( money which it pays back to them as the repair work Is d'Ui<\ it pays this y. j» by y.-ar. < >:> the completion of the twenty-seven abandoned contracts the Barber Interests would have received about Jir.o.ooo. but it appears will ing to give up that amount to pet out of p-ni:iij >>n with the maintenance work, it is sal the Increasingly heavy traffic, together with lir- I burna and other causes, has made the work What Was expected. Some of the thoroughfares affected by this abandonment of work are Fifth avenue, from 60th to soth street; 3ist street, from Fourth t.» Fifth avenue. Macdougal street, from sjri-.< street t>> Waverley Place; Waverley Place, from Macdougal street to Fifth avenue; 40th from Eighth to Eleventh avenue; T^d strei-L from Fifth to Madison w«wn; Tr.th all eel, fioin Fifth to Madison avenue, and 15th street, from sixth to Tenth avenue. Acting Borough President Thompson expects to get an opinion from the Corporation Counsel very shortly. BROADWAY CAR IN CRASH. Score of Persons Cut ami Bruited in Collision.

STAND THE ORDEAL WELL Department Men Take Fifteen-Mile Jaunt Under Orders. [From Th»> Tribune Bureau.] Washington, Oct. B.— Twenty-eight army officers, mounted on lively cavalry steeds and headed by Genera] William I*. Duvall, rode 15.7 mles to-day over the roads surrounding Washington in the test Of horsemanship prescribed by President Roose velt for the colonels, lieutenant colonels and majors on duty at the War Department. Not an officer fell by the wayside, few complained of fatigue, and the ride was pronounced a complete success. The greater number of the officers, who have not seen active duty In the field for some time, showed themselves thoroughly fit, despite their long con finement to departmental desks. They left the war Department at 1 o'clock, and all met at Fort Myer at 1:30 o'clock. There General Duvall super- Intended the selection of good mounts. Accompanied by a few newspaper men. the Officers left the fort at promptly 2 o'clock, circling -.round over the rather muddy Virginia roads, am. returning to Fort Myer at 1:30. One-third Of the distance was covered in a walk, another third in a trot and the final third of the fifteen miles in a fast gallop. All kept well up with General Duvall. who had become quite used to the Virginia and Maryland roads by riding every day. Before the start and on the return the officers participating in the ride were examined by Majors Arthur and Winter, of the board of army surgeons. While the report on the examination after the ride has not been submitted to the War Department, General Duvall believes that it will show that every man returned to the fort in good physical condition. "The ri<:© proved a decided success," declared General Duvall after his return to his home. 'I am entirely satisfied with the first day's experience. To-morrow some twenty more will he taken over the same road, and when about ten officers who are away on leave In Europe and elsewhere report for duty they will go through the same experience as those who rode to-day. "The test amply proved that the men m the de partment are able to ride well and without serious fatigue. None of them complained of being tired or sore when they returned to Fort Myer at 1:30 O'clock to-day, but perhaps they may feel It a little more to-morrow at this time. "In ordering the rid.- It was the Intention of the President to ne.- whether the officers could rid and also to Inculcate a fondness for riding for Its own sake. i am inclined to think this latter purpose will be realized. "But If you want tt> know something about the ride, just ask some of the newspaper men who went along with us," said the general. This thrust was directed at the little band of reporters, some of them representatives of New York papers Who had been poking fun at the "fat colonels." While all the officers passed rough the ordeal with flying colors some of the writers fell by th* wayside. The following took the ride: General Staff corps —Lieutenant Colonels Todd and T. W. Jones and Major S. D. Brorgls; adjutant general's depart ment— Colonel H. P. McCain and Lieutenant Colonel J. B. Hickey; Judge advocate Major J. B. Porter: Inspector general— Major J. G.

Makes Appeal for !o-operation from Stu dents of University. [By T>l**rarli to The Tribune] Cambridge. Mass.. Oct. Bishop Ingram, of London, arrived in Cambridge this morning as the guest of the Rev. E. Abbot, rector of St. James' a Episcopalian Church. The Bishop was taken about Cambridge this morning in an automobile and saw the various points of interest. He had luncheon with President Eliot, and gave, a short address In the chapel of the Episcopal Theological School in Brattle street this afternoon. Bishop Ingram de livered an address In Sanders Theatre to-night, tak ing as his subject. "Some Problems of Great Cities.'' Th. Bishop, drawing from his personal expe rience, made plain that the misery of the poor In cities is coincident with rapid increase of popula tion, overcrowding and child mortality. lie urged the students to enter the work of alleviating these miseries, and ended his lecture by a personal ap peal, In which he. said: "There ought to be an end to the differences and bickerings among the denominations. There Is no reason at all why to-morrow all the Christians in the world should not work together as one man. doing the work of Jesus Christ. You must send us good men to help In our work. 1 think every university should wend a quota of its men into some denomination or other. Then you can do a great deal by your work here. Nothing hurts us more than reports that in the universities there Is drunkenness and Immorality, and unless a place like Harvard Is absolutely sound on questions like drunkenness and Immorality you are undermining us and doing more harm than good In the world." The Bishop presented the university with a rare book by Nathan Prince, a Harvard graduate, bear ing the date of July 6. 1703. ADVANTAGES OF NON-RESIDENTS. Many Snub Uncle Sara and Get Wearing Ap parel in Free. Encouraged by the example of Miss Anna. Held, who upon her arrival from Kurop« in August es caped customs duties on several large trunks of wearing npparel by declaring herself a non-resi dent of the I'nlted States, several women promi nent n New York society, according to customs officials, have recently taken advantage o f the new regulation* and declared themselves non-resi dents. Henry C Stuart, Acting Collector of the Port. said yesterday tho law provided that uny one who had been abroad with a fixed foreign abode for one year, or for two yearu without a fixed abode, had the choice of declaring aa a non-resident or a resident. This, he said. In no wide, affected the citizenship of the person. A non-resident might bring in free, from duty all personal wearing ap parel, but no presents for friends, while a resident could hring back free of duty anything not exceed ing a. total of *100 In value. "We have had no eases of any one abusing tins privilege yet," said Mr. Stuart, "but I have no doubt large number of Americans who have been abroad for a year or two are taking advan tage of declaring themselves non-residents."

In one short half hour yesterday Anthony >?. Brady revealed a scheme for looting the stock holders not on the inside so simple, yet so com prehensive, that the startling disclosures of the insurance investigation almost paled in com parison. Perhaps he told about it v little moro willingly because he was one of the victims of the "big- fellows" in the innermost circle. His testimony about the purchase of tha franchise of the Wall Street & Cortlandt Street Ferries Railway Company by the Metropolitan Securities Company was about the most sensa tional thing brought out yet in the Public Ser vice Commission's Investigation of traction af fairs. It was so clearly a case where the head men in the company had bought a worthless franchise for a small price, charged the com pany—that is. the stockholders— a big one and themselves pocketed the difference that tho lawyers for the traction company sought to minimize its effect as much as possible by addi tional questions which they asked the witness. A touch of Interest wa.-i given to the hearing yesterday by the fact that just before Mr. Brady was called to the stand District Attorney Jerome came into the. hearing room and took a seat beside Chairman "vV'ilJcox. The traction, lawyers looked at each other for a minute; then. as Mr. Will' ox took the. District Attorney's hand, with one impulse DeLancey Nicoll and Paul D. Cravat rushed forward and made It a quartet. They were effusive in their greet ings of Mr. Jerome, He Immediately settled] back into his chair and gave the closest atten tion to Mr. Brady's words. Before calling Mr. Brady William M. Ivlns) fea4 Into the record tho contract between John R McDonald and the Interborough-Metropaasssas Conipuny by which the contractor 13 to draw IQOtOOO a. year for five years to come. This waa dated January 21. ll*»7. It provided that Mr. McDonald should build whatever subways the I nterborough- Metropolitan or any companies controlled by it should receive contracts for and] assured to that company his exclusive service* for flvo years. If he dies before the expiration of that period the remainder of the $250.00 shall be paid to his heirs or executors. Mr. Ivin? aldo read an agreement between thej Metropolitan Securities Company and Kuhn, Loch & Co.. dated February 14, 1902. by which the bankers agreed to do their utmost to obtain for the securitiea company a control of certain; traction companies or rights. This agreement is destined to play an Important part in tha> coming features of the investigation. From it Mr. Ivins expects to bring out that $1,500,000 was »iiiii for underwriting S*JH 000,00© of tho stock of the securities company *"at no risk to anybody. "■ This agreement specified that the securities company having unissued all except $30,000 of the $30,000,000 of stock, desired to acquire all the capital stock of the Interurban Street Railway Company, the People's Traction Com pany of the City of New York, the New York. Winchester & Connecticut Railway Company and the Wall and Cortlandt Street Ferries Railway Company. That having been accomplished, the Interurban was to lease th» lines ol the Metropolitan Street Hallway Com pany and to pay to thai company, on ratifica tion of the lease by Its directors, the sum eS $23,000,000. The Interurban was to advance, pending such ratification, up to $5,000,000 if neded lot construction.
