MOXDAY, 82, 1M7. GREAT JAPANESE RESERVE GATHERS OH PACIFIC COASI Every Son of Japan Is a Soldier and Always Ready to Respond to Call. Los Angeles. Ca1.. July 20. Are there 33.000 Japanese soldier on the Pacific coast. Jn regular communi cation with the mikado T The jHjxinene on the con. can not number less than 100,000, al though none of the Japanese them selves will admit any such numbers. On the contrary, they maintain, that In all Loe Angeles county there are not more than 4.000 Jajxinese, but at the lowest estimate there are 15, 1)00. Trustworthy estimates Indicate that fully 33' per cent of the 100,000 Japs on the coast are members of the first army reserve, and as such, according to S. Fujil, an Influential member of the Los Angeles colony and a graduate of one of the six 1m- .SCENE IX LOS ANGELES TOOLROOM perial universities, must report reg- i uiariy to a superior officer at home. All Are Soldiers. "The Japanese army la run on the same ba.--is ns the German army." said Fujil. "Every boy Is examined, and if he Is fit. he must serve In the army three years. When this time Is up, he Is allowed to go where he pleases, but must communicate with the commanding officer at least once a year. Many of them have come to this country. For six months he is considered a member of the first re serve, and for three years after that he belongs to the second reserve. The reserves were used In the war with Russia, but plnce then they have been mustered out of the stand ing army." It Is, however, significant, that every Japanese, whether a laborer, merchant or student, will do his best to convince you that his countrymen in America Is Insignificant "Our people are well pleased with Americans," said Fujil, "but the Scandanavians and Italians who live In San Francisco do not hesitate to assault us on every provocation, and for these assaults the American gov ernment is blamed by my country men at home, who do not under stand the situation." Japs Play Pool. Fujil went on to lament the down fa. I of many young Japanese In the American pool rooms. "In Japan there are a number of professional billiard players," he said, when asked why there were so many Jap pool rooms on the coast. "The people go to see these playeri In contests much as Americans go to a ball game. When my people come to this country and find that any body can play who has the price, they all become addicted to it. This leads them. Into oad habits, and many or tne noys who come over here to learn, end up by lonfing around the pool rooms, making trouble for themselves." When asked about the Japanese women who occupy low places in he "Little Tokyo" district, he merely shrugged his shoulders. "The Japanese who come to this country," he said, "are for the most part ambitious but poor. s they hive to work at almost anything to THE EXCVIISIO-V SEASON'.

C, July 22. The tobacco trust, which Is the largest trust selected for prosecution by the department of Justice, Is one of the m5t complete combinations In the L'nited States. It controls about 80 per cent of the business of producing smoking and chewing tobacco and snuff fts well an clgarets. It probably does not control more than 15 per cent of the cigar manufacturing trade. It is presumed under the Sherman law to be a vicious Institution, since it Is clearly a combination in restraint of trade. "We are not undertaking to prove that the tobacco trust is morally of economically an offender." said As sistant Attorney General Purdy. who has charge of the prosecution. "It is not necessary. The Sherman act presumes that a combination which brings together so much power In single hands will bo abused." This was the answer of the de partment of Justice to a request for specific details as to the manner In which the tobacco trust had worked Injury to the public at 'large. Jn addition to the prosecution by the denartment of Justice an Inquiry is being conducted by the bureau of corporations. The results will not be ready for months. Offensive iTiists. "There are different ways In which a trust may be offensive," said a high official of the department or justice. "Limiting the supply, deteriorating the oroduct. and raising the price are things most offensive since they affect the consumer. Another way is in driving small competitors out or business by unfair methods. Finally the way In which a trust may and generally does abuse the power which It acquires by combination is in re ducing the price which the trust pays for raw material. "You have asked whether the gov ernment Is prepared to prove that the tobacco trust has depreciated the product. I would say probably not The government Is not founding its prosecution on any such ground. It would ibe hard to prove anything in regard to the general quality of to bacco. "I am asked whether the public has been made to suffer from the un warrantably high price of tobacco. Nothing in our Investigations has brought to light as yet any serious hardships thus worked on the con suming public. The man or woman who wants It can generally spare the price of the necessary tobacco or snuff.

TOTALS, Long experience and thorough testing have proven S. S. S. to be t!j King of blood purifiers and the greatest of all tonics. For nearly half a rentury S. S. S. has been used in the treatment of blood and skin diseases of every character, and so satisfa-tory have been the results that it is now the best known and most widely used blood medicine on the market. S. S. S. attracted attention as soon as it was placed on the market by curing promptly those diseases for which it was recommended, and we have so jealously guarded its first good reputation, by keeping it tip to its standard in manufacture, that it now has the unequalled and pleasing record of "Forty Ysarm Of Cures. " For Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Sores and Ulcers, Malaria, Skin Diseases, Contagious Blood Poison, and all other diseases due to an impure or poisoned condition of the blood, there is nothing that equals S. S. S. It counteracts and removes the germs and poisons, cleanses the system of all unhealthy matter, cures the trouble per manently, and restores strong, robust health. Where the blood is weak or anaemic and unable to nourish the system as it should, S. S. S. supplies it with the needed properties, and being a bracing, invigorating tonic it builds up the entire system. It goes to the very bottom of all blood disorders, and in this way reaches deep-seated and inherited cases on which the ordinary sarsaparillas and tonics have little or no effect. Not only is S. S. S. certain in its results, but it is an absolutely safe medicine. It enjoyi the distinction of being the only blood medicine on the market that is guar anteed purely vegetable.

But here again I must admit that the public Is not made to suffer. How Trust lights. "Next comes the question of driv ing to the wall the small retailer. The government's cae axainst the tobacco trust is not calculated to de velop any testimony along this line. The tolmcco trust is a combination principally of the manufacturing in dustry. As to the part played by the L'nited Cigar company's stores, that remains to be seen. It has been charged that this Is the beginning of a trust combination In the retail field. and It may be true; but I have be fore called attention to the fact tnat the tobacco trust controls only 15 per cent of the cigar trade, which lends Itself less readily to combina tion. "The final .point Is the question whether the suppression of compe tition has worked Injury to the man who has tobacco to sell rrom his farm. Probably It has. Agents of the department of commerce and la bor have gathered testimony In all sections of the country where tobacco Is grown. There Is considerable com plaint from the south. The govern ment Is trying to find out w hether this complaint is well founded. It has been stated on the floor of the house of representatives that the southern tobacco grower has been reduced to such extremes of poverty that white women have been obliged to go into the fields yoked to a plow or cultiva tor on the plane with beasts of bur den.

Maglll and Kay Graham Alnglll, arrested nt San IHego only a few days after their marriage In Ienver, charged with. the murder of MagiU'a first wife, Mrs. Pet Maglll, who died last Memorial day, was given two crushing blows today when Attorney E. J. Sweeney announced that he would have noth- thlng to do with it, and a sixth letter written by Pet Maglll was found. Ma glll and his bride are now being brought to Clinton to face trial. Attorney Sweeney Is noted In Cen tral Illinois as a prosecutor of bull dog pugnacity, end when State's At torney Arthur Miller announced last night that Sweeney had been en gaged to assist the state In the pros ecution, people shook their heads and said it looked bad for Maglll. Today Attorney Sweeney notified Mr. Miller that he could not assist him In the prosecution of the Magllls. Mr. Miller, while admitting that the refusal of Mr. Sweeney to participate In the case was a hard blow to him, still maintained that the Magills would be held to the grand Jury and that Indictments would be returned against them In October. Pet Maglll left a sixth letter. It w-ns discovered today. This letter was addressed to hor father, Alexander Oandy, and It Is declared that in tt she told her aged parent that she was about to destroy herself and bade him goudby. She also begged his forgiveness for the step she was about to take. This letter. It Is Bald, never reached her father, but was destroyed by relative here. If thla Is true.
