ORIENTAL COUNTRY AND RUSSIA
WILL SHOW PROCESSES. WORK THEM IN WITH EXHIBITS An Agricultural Competition—Weav ing and Embroidery Work of Rus sian Peasant—Japanese Bronzes and Carving—Other Features. SAN DIEGO, June 8.—Details of the large Russian and Japanese ex hibits definitely arranged for San Diego's great fair of 1915 were an nounced today by the Panama-Califor nit exposition. Reservations made by the merchants of these two countries are among the largest in the Foreign Arts building. Both countries have adopted the San Diego idea of showing processes rather than products exclusively. Consequently, the most notable feat ure in Japan's exhibit will be the weaving and embroidery of the rare silk costumes for which Japan is famous, the hammering of the bronzes and hte laborious carving of wood and ivory. Some of the finer works of art require several years for completion. Different stages of this work and the painstaking methods of the artisans will be shown—in actual process. In another quarter of the Japanese exhibit will be demonstrated the weav ing of the broad-brimmed Formosa hats of hemp and chip. The weaving of the silk will be performed by new type# of machinery and also in the old style hand process which produces the most extraordinary results. Russian Exhibitors. Similarly, one of the Russian exhib itors, Madame Vera de Blumenthal, will show what the peasant woman of her country can do. Madame Blu mentlial has lived in this country for several years, devoting most of her time to aiding her countrywomen in marketing their wares in the United States, obtaining better prices than they had been getting and so enabling them to advance somewhat in the social scale. A percentage of the profit has been set aside as a fund for educating the peasant children, particularly in the Koustarni arts, with a view to developing the weaving and embroidery work of the Russian peasant into a standard industry. Until Mme. Blumental took an ac tive interest in the work the Russian rug was little known in this country, but last year she was invited to send exhibits to various conventions, and the choicest articles won high awards. She is counting on the 1915 demon stration to aid her education work materially. A little distance from the peasant rug weavers will be the typical Rus sian cottage. These peasant girls in their native costume will serve tea from the samovar in Russian style just as the Japanese across the build ing are serving tea in Japanese style. The cigarette making glass manu facture, iron working and the other principal Russian arts will be shown, and everywhere will be carried out the program of showing the process of manufacture, allowing the visitor opportunity to see exactly how the goods are made. Exposition Features. It is announced that each general agent of the Santa Fe railway will be sent to San Diego this summer to ex amine the work of the exposition, in order that he may be able to discuss the appearance and the aims of the exposition in detail with prospective v.cit.rs. It is likely the other railroads will make similar arrangements. The California members of the Uni ted Daughters of the Confederacy have announced their 1915 convention will be held in San Diego, allowing them to spend most of their time at the Panama-California exposition. They have also invited the national body to hold the 1915 onvention in California. There are 20,000 Utah boys who already have a direct interest in San Diego's 1915 exposition. They are members of the 300 boys' agricultural clubs competing to see who can raise the best crops in the state. The win ners will be awarded tickets to the ex position beautiful and traveling ex penses. The competition is under direction of the Utah Agricultural club, which furnishes the boys with a variety of seeds sufficient to plant an acre of ground to several crops. Exhibits from their work will be sent to the Utah State fair in the autumn, where the contest will be decided. It is planned, also, to have parts of the fruit of the contest displayed in all the local fairs, and forward the winning grains and vegetables to San Diego for exhibit In the Utah State building, construction of which is just being started. The boys participating are of high school age, and must do all the work themselves. More than half the counties of Utah have announced their intention of levying a local tax to cover the ex pense of county exhibits in the Utah State building at San Diego in 1915. The selection of exhibits will be made with the assistance of the Utah Expo sition commission. Exposition Commissioner George T. Mills, explaining the plan for Nevada's mining exhibits at San Diego in 1915, announces the program for showing "processes, not products," in the Ne vada building. "There is little educational value In piles of specimens," he said. "Each exhibit would be like all the others. The idea is to show how those speci mens were produced—the prospecting the shaft sinking, the mining, the transportation, the concentration and finally the finished bar. We want to show the amazing development of Ne vada in the last ten years, and we have a graphic, interesting way of showing it." The heavy structural work on the Keen and Tulare counties building at the San Diego exposition is entirely completed and the contractors are about to start the staff and plaster work. Following the Spanish-Colonial school, after which all buildings on the grounds are modeled, the Keen Tulare building is of the residential type, as contrasted with the mission and cathedral types exemplified else where. There is no dome or lofty tower, but the ornamentation is in the form of richly moulded doorways, cor nices and small balconies which jut out from each window on the upper floor. Across that section of the Plaza de Panama lies the big building of the San Joaquin valley, on which the or namental work is still further advanc ed. Up the plaza lie several of the completed structures of the main group, and above the palm jungle in th( canyon and on the inner plateau, will lie other of the state and county buildings. MANY KINGS OF ENGLAND HAVE FAVORED BOXING GAME Chicago Journal: When King George V. recently attended a public exhibi tion of boxing at the barracks of the Second Life Guards, and applauded the exhibition of the "manly art" fur nished by Bombardier Wells and Pat O'Keefe, as well as the bouts between soldier pugilists, he did not establish a royal precedent. Every one of the five Georges who have ruled England has been a patron of boxing and en thusiastic in his admiration of the sport. George II., who ascended the throne just two centuries ago this year, was the first royal boxer. The modern fistic game had its beginning during his reign, when James Figg, fo Thame, Oxfordshire, became the first champion of England. George I., until his death, did everything in his power to promote the boxing game. When his son, George II., came to the throne, in 1727, he gave royal encour agement to the sport and took private lessons from Broughton. The latter is said to have invented the first "gloves" (called "mufflers"), in order to prevent the possibility of damage to the royal countenance. George III. was even more enthusiastic in his ad miration of boxing than his predeces sors. He boxed well, and, a century ago, he gave a boxing show to cele brate the triumph over Napoleon, the spectators including the rulers of Rus sia and Prussia. An ex-champion, Jem Belcher, was asked to form a corona tion guard of honor, composed of box ers, when George IV. (a brilliant box er) was crowned in 1S20. William IV. was not interested in boxing, and Queen Victoria is said to have sought to stamp it out. Under George V. it is apparent that boxing is to be again in royal favor. The king long ago learned how to box. HARRY THAW'S CASE lP IN THE SUPR EME COORT WASHINGTON, June S.—Harry Thaw's appeal for freedom reached the supreme court of the United States today when Former Governor Stone of Pennsylvania, as counsel, asked for his release on bail pending a final decision of the proceedings by which the state of New York seeks to return the noted prisoner to Matte wan from his refuge in New Hamp shire. Chief Justice White gave repre sentatives of New York until Friday to file a brief in opposition to Thaw's release and a decision may be given next Monday when the supreme court will complete its work for the term and adjourn until fall. The supreme court rules provide for bail in such cases and Justice Aldrich of the fed eral court at New Hampshire, who gave the favorable decision in Thaw's habeas corpus proceedings, announced in his decision that he was not sure he ought to deny a release on bail, but would present the subject to the su preme court. Mr. Stone set forth in his petition that his client was needed in court in Tennessee to testify in the settlement of his father's estate. Temptation is when a boy with a slingshot sees a stray cat or a married man sees a good-looking girl smile ai him. >,. ' SIZE OF VERDICT RENDERED IN THE CASE AGAINST MILWAUKEE.

GENERAL FEDERATION WOMEN'S CLUBS MEET I N CHICAGO CHICAGO, June 8.—Arrival of dele gates from six states today signalized the beginning of the twelfth biennial convention of the General Federation ol Women's clubs.

DEBATE IN THE SENATE ON CANAL TOLLS REPEAL MEASURE WASHINGTON, June 8.—Debate in opposition to the Panama canal toll exemption repeal bill occupied the senate today and frustrated efforts of democratic leaders to reach a vote on the repeal bill. Senators Poindexter, Martine and Smith of Michigan, spoke during the day and Senator Smith will continue tomorrow. Lines were drawn for the final dis position of the measure, however, and parliamentary preliminaries were completed. Senator Simmons pre sented to the senate as a substitute for the committee to the committee re peal bill the compromise amendment agreed upon by himself and Senator Norris of Nebraska. This amendment declares that the passage of the bill i shall not be construed as a relinquish ment of "any right the United States may have under the Hay-Pauncefote [treaty or otherwise." Senator Sutherland criticized the Norris-Simmons amendment and pro posed the following: 'Provided that nothing herein shall be considered as denying or abridging the right of the United States to dis criminate in favor of the ships of commerce of its citizens in respect to the condition or charges of traffic wnich may be imposed for the use of the Panama canal, but on the con trary such right is hereby re-assert ed." Acm:nistration leaders asserted to night that they expected to reach a vote on the Norris-Simmons amend ment by Thursday, at least. Toll exemption for both coastwise and ocean-going American ships was urged by Senator Martine of New Jersey. Ho regretted differing with President V/*ison in the controversy, and said, "however honest the presi dent may be, he may err, and I be lieve that in this instance he has committed p. most grevious erro." The democratic administration was taken to task for its foreign policy by Senator Smith, who declared the "president had not the far-sightedness of his predecessors. i wisn x could give my full im pressions as to what drove the presi dent to that desperate position," he said, referring to the demand for re peal of tolls exemption. "I think he was moved to this measure by a sud den situation in Mexico and as a re sult of a visit of officers of a Japanese battleship to Huerta at Mexico City." Mount lassen,in the cascade MOUNTAINS, IN ERUPTIUK RED BLUFF, Cal., June 8.—At 4:30 p. m. a column of steam 700 feet high shot out of Mount Lassen. It is r- ported the mountain is emRUng: fire. This, however, is net certainly known here. Lassen, which is at the foot of the Cm- cade range and in a vast volcanic field, began to steam last Monday and melted all the snow o'C the mountain top, besides sending forth rocks and volcanic dust. Investigation showed that snow, trickling into fissures, had generated gas steadily and broke into a new geyser, forming some 40 feet long. The mountain will quiet down in a day or so. Yesterday heavy snows were report ed from Lassen district. SUCH IS LIFE. (Cincinnati Enquirer.) When you have coin we'll shake your hand In any sort of weather; But when you're broke, please under stand, We'll shake you altogether. (York, Pa„ Cor. Philadelphia Record.) An odd wooden cup, with an inscrip tion which leads to the belief that it was once owned by William Penn, was found by J. H. Craley in a cave in the Bald Hills, this county. Carrying an electric searchlight, Craley crawled farther into the cave than any others are known to have penetrated in recent years. There he found a spacious room, and half-buried in the floor the cup, on which is carved '1681 D. Y., 2, W. P„ C. F., 1682," and two hands clasped. It is conjectured that the cup was given by the Duke of York to William Penn., following a boundary agree ment, and that the "C. F." signifies "certify friendship."
