Weep for Ko Low.
Poincare'e Receivership. The Dog't Majesty. The Ciar Also Did It -By ARTHUR BRISBANE? (Copyright, 1(11.) Ko Lev, prosperous Chinas*, sf New York, walked from the Chinese Delmonico'g with e whit* girl on either arm. Two other Chinese shot one girl in the foot, shot Ko Low dead with various bullets, then melt ed into the Asiatic atmosphere of the Chinese quarter. Ko Low's "ton*" says: "The brothers of Ko Low are an guished by the death, but can't Understand it" It is just a prifate murder, not a ton* war, they say. White men, with their opinions of the two white girls, think it may have been providential. So much for New Yoik. In San Francisco, members of all the tongs met and Important leaders signed a treaty, agree ing not to shoot anybody until further notice. . At that moment detectives broke in, seized the treaty, say >*?*? "We'll keep this secret. Bat if you do start shooting, well arrest everybody whose Bame is signed here." They are signing such docu ments in Europe. If only some celestial power could take cop ? of the treaties and promise to lock up any statesmen start ing a fight! The plan of Monsieur Poin eare is to establish a German plebiscite. Germany would live under allied supervision, the al lies would take 20 per cent of mining end industrial conces sions. They would run Ger n,*ny ,"as a going concern," something like a receiver ap pointed by the court, taking ?*?r. ? railroad. The German receivership, including sixty mil ium Germans, would be a con siderable undertaking.
