To the AVashington government the situation is fraught with perils for mediation, with a possibility that it might pre cipitate war between the United States and Mexico. The gunboats are due to reach the port of Tampieo about 5 o'clock Monday morning. The purpose of the United States to sup press an attempt to block ade the port and prevent in terference with the Antilla was indicated when Secre tary Daniels issued an of ficial statement, announc ing that, while no new or ders have been given Rear Admiral Badger, there has been no change in the gov-; eminent 's policy with refer-' enee to the desire that the; port of Tampieo be open to1 all commerce. j Huerta brought about the crisis by ordering the gun boats Saragosa and Bravo to blockade Tampieo and seize the Antilla s cargo.

Arizona Becoming Famed As An Asbestos Producer (Special to The Republican.) WASHINGTON, D. C June 7 A notable event of the year in the as bestos industry of the United States, says a report made public today by J. S. Diller or the United Suites geological survey on the p'.oduction of asbestos in 191", has been the opening of a new locality in Arizona, about thirty miles northeast of Globe for the high-grade ehrysotlle such as occurs in the depths of the Grand Canyon. In occurrence, origina, qual ity and quantity this deposit is es sentially the same as that of the Grand Canyon district, but it is much more accessible, being in a canyon about KO0 feet deep and within thirty CANNERS PAY HIGH PRICES FOR FRUIT SACRAMENTO, June 7. That high prices paid b dinners will affect considerably the amount of fruit sent east this year is the freely expressed opinion of a number of prominent fruit men. It is pointed out that at pres ent the canneries are in direct competition with the shippers of fruit, because of the large re turns they arc able to assure growers and many orchardists I are selling to the canners. This will result in taking off the mar- i ket the previously ever present surplus which acted as such a i demoralizing force.

NO BIBLICAL FILMS High Court of Prussia Makes Import ant Ruling T ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH) BERLIN, June 7. There must be no biblical films in Prussia, according to a ruling of the highest administrative court of the kingdom. The Berlin po lice president had prohibited the pro duction of a film which gave some scenes from the life and sufferings of Christ. The court sustained the action of the police on the ground that the Christian religion is a part of the pub lic order which the police are bound to uphold. The court also held that such a film grossly wounds the sen sibilities of religious people, particu larly in view of the fact that it is given along with light and humorous produc tions. TO TAX THE DRAMA I ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH BERLIN, June 7. The proposed extension of the existing amusement tax now levied upon variety houses, moving picture theaters, circuses and other amusements in Berlin, so as to apply to the dramatic stage has evok ed strong protests from many sides. The tax has already forced one cir cus to close its doors after an exist ence of many years, and has driven a number of cinematograph houses out of business. The theater managers declare that the tax will be even more disastrous for legitimate drama. miles by trail and wagon road from j the railway.

LIBERALS REAP FIRSI FRUIT OF VETO LIMIT ACT 'Passage of Bill Disestab lishing Church of England in AA'ales is One of First A7ictories for the Liberal Party CLOSES FIGHT OF FORTY YEARS Not Until II. II. Asquith, AAlio Introduced the First Bill, Became Prime Alinis ter AA'as There Hope for the Measure f ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH LONDON, June 7. By the passage of the bill to disesstablish the Church of England in Wales the liberals reaped the first fruits of the parliament act which they passed to limit the veto power of the house of lords. It is forty years since the non-conformists of AVales commenced tha movement to have the church dises tablished so far as their principality is concerned and just under twenty years since a liberal government introduce in the house of commons the first bill to carry out the wishes of these non conformists. 1 Like many liberal measures since, the first disestablishment bill, passed the bouse of commons by a majority of 44 in a house of 5t4, was thrown out by the house of lords. Not until H. H. Asquith, who, as home secretary, in- troduced that first bill, became prime minister and undertook the huge task of curbing the power of the upper chamber, was there any hope of a bill to disestablished the church becoming a law, so strongly are the lords on the side of the established church in all matters of the kind. Now however, they have to bow to the inevitable. Under the parliament act, the bill hav ing passed the house of commons three times, becomes law no matter what at titude the house of lords takes. It lias been a long hard fight for those who desired the disestablishment of the church. In the first debate on the bill introduced by Mr. Asquith in 1895 the opposition was led by Mr. Bal four, who also spoke against the pres ent measure, and the then home sec retary had to face all the then big guns of the conservative party. He had on his side, however, Joseph Chamberlain, then a strong advocate, of disestablish ment, but now with all bis followers, an opponent of it. Mh. Asquith's labor on that occasion, as that of many of his successors in after years, was wast ed. As soon as the bill reached the lords it was thrown out without any consideration. Now the lords are pow erless, except to make .suggestions fof amendments, which are not likely to receive much consideration from the Welsh members of the house of com mons, their liberal supporters, both non-conformist and churchmen, and above all the Irish nationalists, who voted regularly for the bill, perhaps not so much because they like its prin ciple as because of a desire to get it out of the way to give a clear road for the home rule bill. While home rule has attracted more attention, on account of the opposition of a portion of Ulster, the Welsh church bill has created almost as much feeling between the two political par ties, and between the church of Eng land and the liberals. The Welsh lib erals, and with one or two exceptions all memNbcrs of the house of commons from the principality are liberals, were busy early and late urging the pas sage of the bill, and supporting candi dates in constituencies throughout the kingdom pledged to vote for it. The bishops and their supporters were just !as busy, in every bye-election, organi zations opposed to disestablishment, entered the constituency to fight can didates who favored the bill, and lib eral churchmen were particularly urged to go against their party on this meas ure. All this has counted heavily against the government and several bye-elections have been influenced by it. Mr. Asquith has, however, gone steadily forward, endeavoring to carry out the pledges he gave the Welshmen twenty years a go to disestablish the church when it was in his power to do so. j Now that the disestablishment bill has been passed it is .believed that all the old animosities aroused by it will be buried. The government at any rate has taken the first step toward that happy conclusion by appointing a non partisan commission to carry out the provisions of the bill. This commis sion is composed of Sir Henry Prim rose, a civil servant of long and dis tinguished service, who is a member of the Episcopal church of Scotland; Sir William Plender, a chartered account ant, member of the Church of England, and Sir Herbert Roberts, a Welsh non conformist member of the house of commons. The functions of the commission will be judicial, administrative and actua rial. They will have to determine the allocation of border parishes of Eng lish or Welsh diocesses; decide what Is Welsh ecclesiastical property, which on the passage of the bill became vested in them; and they will have to dis- (Continued on Page Five.)

The first leally nice day gave the people their chance to enjoy the park to the ut- most and all sorts and conditions, sizes and ages made the most of it.

PARROT American Volcanologist Has Come to Conclusion That Earthquake Activity iii Japan is Gradually Sub siding VISITS CRATER ON SAKURA Reaches Scene of Eruption Within Month After Sak urajima's Molten Lava Caused Great Loss of Life on Island ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH TOKIO, June 7. Dr. Frank A. Ferret, the American volcanolgist, has come to the conclusion that the volcanic and earthquake activity which has been the source of con tinual worry and frequent devasta tion in Japan is on the wane. But the hope he holds out is not for immediate cesation of these troubles. It is a matter of centuries. Or. Perret is one of the few sci entists who devote their whole time to the study of the earth's convul sions. He. represents the Volcanic Research society, of Springfield, Mass., and the Volcanological Insti tute of Naples, spending most of his time under the shadow of Vesuvius. He came here last February to visit the scene of the volcanic erutpion on the Island of Sakura, the month previously, when Sakurajima's mol ten lava caused a great loss of lite and property. Details of an accident which be fell him during his investigations make it appear that he had a very narrow escape from death on the Sakurajima. in March. He was tak ing notes of a lava flow when sud dnely a small crater, only sixty feet from where he was standing, burst forth with a terrific explosion, send ing a column of lava and red hot rock thousands of feet into the air. A. tongue of lava struck one of Dr. Eerret's knees and several stones burned into his flesh. That his in juries were not more serious, or even fatal, was due only to the fact that he was able to shelter himself be hind a large boulder. "I have taken many chances," lie said, "but certainly1 I never have been so near death as I was at Sa kurajima." While the full report of his in vestigation will not be drawn up until later. Dr. Perret is convinced that the study of volcanic and seis mic conditions in Japan has been well worth while. For one thing, he sai-d, "it adds to our knowledge of the mode of action of an exploding lava in causing a horizontal blast, which is one of the most destructive of all volcanic manifestations, as was shown at :St. Pierre, Martinique, in 1902, when 30,000 persons lost their lives.'1 Speaking of the general situation. he continued: "We must remember that volcanoes form a constructive means for the upbuilding of this archipelago which began ages ago and which is continuing. If we look from the standpoint of a large num ber of years say centuries we can say that volcanic phenomena is waning. Consequently earthquakes, always considering them as a whole, will become fewer in Japan rather than more numerous." During this waning period, how- ne aauea, it was aiwas possi bIe tnat severe disturbances would occur, and that many communities took risks, as at Mount Aso, where 4,000 people actually live in a crater.
