FRIEDMAN Mluf?Jeier A feeling of impending disaster has taken possession of the ieople. The insurgents have swept all before them. The government losses at Anseavean on Friday and the route of the loyal troops have caused consternation among officials of the government with possibly the exception of Pres ident Nord Alexis. Every effort to have him take himself out of the country has proved a failure and the president, who has faced revolutions lefore, announces his determination to fight to a finish. The residents are panic stricken and a great majority of the natives have closed their stores and business houses and put bars across the doors and windows of their residences. In the harbor are warships of the United States and France, from which forces unquestionably will be landed if the insurgents attempt to enter the gates of the city or at the first sign of disorder and pillage. THE TIME HASN'T COME. Washington. Nov. 30. The United States has no present intention of in terfering in Haytien affairs. The statement is made on the best au thority. The situation in the island is an internal one, and as far as is known here it has to deal entirely with the people. The Haytien situation is not com plicated by the work of the "Enii grados." which obtains so frequently in Central American revolutions. President Xord Alexis has been in power for a' number of years and for the time being at least, there is no ground for American intervention. A SPECIAL SESSION So Alarming Has the Haytien Situa tion Become. Port Au Prince, Nov. .",0. The sit uation has become so grave that an official proclamation has been issued convoking the chambers in extraordi nary session that measures may be taken to preserve the government, or at least to effect a compromise with the revolutionary leaders. There was great fear tonight that a disgruntled body of Haytiens in the city might take up arms for the over throw of the government which, how ever, hail taken precautions against such a happening. President Alexis suspecting the loyalty of General Ca meau, chief of police, sent him out on i special mission, while General Nau. who is one of the chief of po lice's officials, has been replaced by fjencral Hyacinthe for the same rea son. , It is not expected that General Simon's force will reach the cross roads until Wednesday.

Paris, Xov. So. The French govern ment is giving consideration to the question as to how President Castro of Venzuela shall be treated on his arrival at Bordeaux. After the igno minious fashion in which the French, minister was expelled from Caracas, the government feels that It would be Justified in refusing to allow the pres ident of Venezuela and his aides to land. President Castro is reported to be ill and huminarian considerations would prevent the government from taking such a course. It is probable therefore, that port officials will be designated to board the steamer Guadalupe and ascertain his intentions. If he desires to be treated at Bordeaux he will be allowed to remain there and if at Berlin he will be given passports across France, via Lyons to the Swiss frontier. But in no case will he tie permitted to come to Paris. President Castro's statement at Basseterre which he is reported have made to interviewers yesterday to the effect that he was proceeding to France to settle a diplomatic matter, was the first intimation the French government had that he had any In tention of trying Ij settle the Ycne xuelan difficulty with this country.

Tariff Revision Critics To Come Be fore the Committee. Washington. Nov. 30. Determined to bring before it those who have crit icised tile hearings on the revision tariff bill and from whom much im portant information Is to be obtained before the framing of an impartial tariff bill could be undertaken, the ways and means committee of the house will request congress to author ize it to subpoena wi.nesses to appear at the supplementary hearings. J. W. Van Cleave, president of the National Association of Manufacturers and V. II. Milis. chairman of the tar iff committee of the same organiza tion, have frequently attacked the methods used by the committee. Chairman Payne strongly resented the attack and his reneust to congress for the right to subpoena witnesses is understood to be directed mainly at Van Cleave and Miles who have not appealed despite special invitations. Everett Ames, of Portland. Oregon, a burlap manufacturer, said the Pa cific coast manufacturers needed a great differential so as to compete with tile Calcutta burlap bag. Since the passage of the Dingley law he ex plained the cost of his labor has In creased 20 to 30 per cent on the coast and machines have been introduced in the manufacture of burlap in Calcutta. John Hoyd of New York asked that the higher protected Chinese, Japan ese and India straw mattings be broucht in at a duty of three cents or the same as the cheaper grades. The committee held no session tonight. THE FUTILE OBJECTIONS OF LOS ANGELES NEGROES The Clansman Presented to an Over flowing House Last Night. Los Angeles, Nov. 3. Through the failure of the negro opponents of the play to make good their claims. "The Clansman" was successfully produced tonight before the largest audience that ever packed the , Mason opera house. Officials of the fire depart ment were obliged to stop the sale of standing room after every seat had been taken and the eager crowds threatened to block the aisles and exits. Negro organizations had put up a determined fight against the produc tion but they were beaten all along the line. Mayor Harper, to whom they appealed, declared there was no warrant in the law for interfering with Thomas Dixon's reconstruction drama. The temer of tonight's au dience Indicated its intense southern sympathies. Every speech and scene upholding the idea of white suprem acy was vociferously cheered. At the end of the third act the players impersonating the Ku Klux Klan were called before the curtain and encored many times. The week of capacity business in this city will mark the close of "The Clansman's" visit to the Pacific coast. Next Sun day the famous organization will start eastward and will play the chief cities of the great southwest preparatory to a fourth return engagement in New Orleans at the height of the Mardi Gras season.

STANDARD OIL COMPANY NATIONAL BENEFACTOR Mr. Archbold Says That Its Exports Have Preserved the Trade Balance. New York, Nov. 3(1. The develop ment of the Standard dl company's trade in foreign fields as a subject -vf evidence in the government's suit to dissolve tho oil combination gave John I. Archbold, the vice president, an op portunity as a witness, to spread upon the record some interesting facts. (if the total amount of illuminating oil refineil by the Standard oil in 1A06, Archbold stated sixty-three per 'cent was sold abroad. The export figures of oilier years further showed that the Standard had exported a major portion of its illuminating oil. The line of testimony in regard to the immense foreign trade, indicates that one defense by the Standard Oil will lie its foreign trade, which the company will endeavor to show, brings a trade balance in favor of the United States. This business, Archbold went on to say, was secured in the face of cetn petitien with 400 foreign companies. Archbold said that the products of the Standard reaches every part of the world and he further declared that the aim of the company was to reach directly even,- consumer in the far east, as in this country. The testimony given by Archbold showed during that period of the Standard Ml trust the trustees have poured millions of dollars of the com pany's earnings back into the con struction of new refineries and pipe lines. o OF POSTAL SERVICE A Plan to Take the Management Out of Politics. Washington, Nov. ::0. The four of fices of assistant postmaster general will be abolished, a director of posts with seven assistants will be pro vided for and the entire postal ser vice of the United States will In divided into fifteen separate districts, if the bill for a revision of the postal laws which is being prepared by the joint postal investigation commission appointed two years ago, be passed by congress. It is claimed that a direc tor of posts, appointed to hold office until removed for cause will tend to improve the service through a con- tinuity of policies for the benefit of the service. lly providing for seven 'assistants the disadvantages due to frequent changes and the appointment of inex perienced men to the four offices of assistant postmaster general can, it is believed, be obviated. The assist ant directors are to hold office during good behavior. To perfect a system of manage ment, provision for fifteen superin tendents to have direct charge of the fifteen separate postal districts has lieen decided upon. o INTEREST DYING OUT The Ruef Trial No Longer Attracts "Capacity" Audiences San Francisco, Nov. 31.

Willi Japan NOT II EFFECT It is a Mere Declaration, Ex pected to Produce Better Understanding Among all Parties Which Have Inter ests In the Far East Washington, Nov. 30. Secretary of State Klihu Root, on behalf o the. United Statesi and Kogora Takahira, ambassador on behalf of Japan, short ly after 4 o'chx'k. this afternoon ex changed diplomatic notes defining the policy o! the two governments in the far east. The actual ceremony of the excange was verv brief, Secretary Root hand ing the ambassador a note which bore his signature and the ambassador giv ing Mr. Root a paper defining Japan's lioiicy and bearing his signature. As sistant Secretary Bacon, second assis tant of the embassy, Masno Hanihara, and Mr. Babcock, Mr. Rixit's private secretary, were the witnesses. After an informal exchange of felicitations the ambassador and his secretary left. The full purport of the notes has al ready been set forth in Associate Press dispatches. They will be made public simultaneously tomorrow in the United States and Japan, with a view to their publication in both countries on Wed nesday morning. The exchange of notes is based on the idea of encouraging and defending free and peaceful commercial develop ment in the Pacific and to this the sig natory parties have prepared a series of articles expressing their intention. Legislative action by the senate is unnecessary' and a declaration of tho exchange of notes will not have to be ratified by that body. The declaration is not a treaty, simply a reaffirmation of what both Japan and the United States have stood for in China and the far east generally. It has no legat standing, but Its greatest benefit will be that derived from the moral Vfect it will exercise on future diplomacy governing the far east. In this respect it has been liken ed to the Monroe Doctrine in American history. 20 Acres WELL IMPROVED LAND with good Brick House at Mesa At a very reasonable price. i: Dwight 6. Heard ii . . Cor.
