Notes From Washington
From Our Regular Correspondent. It looks now as though the secretary of the navy would be empowered to deal with mid shipmen of the naval academy who are guilty of ‘-running”, “hazing”, list-lighting and the other gentle practices that it has been found they are in the habit of enjoying. There was con siderable talk of a wholesale in vestigation by Congress of the conditions of the academy. Had there been a more lenient sec retary of the navy, this might have been done. But secretary Bonaparte has said and said emphatically that he would stop fighting and hazing very prompt ly if he were given the power. So the thing probably will be put, in his hands and guilty cadets in the future will be punished by summary dismissal. It is not likely either that con gress will reinstate any more dismissed midshipmen as it did m the case of young Chaffee and some others a year ago. Had congress not interfered in that case, the chances are that the Branch-Meriwether fight which brought about all the present trouble would never have taken place. The postoftice fraud cases have not been proceeding very speedily lately, but another of them was tentatively disposed of this week one may say tentatively, as a motion was entered for anew trial and the defendant released on SIO,OOO bail. It was the case of Wm, G. Crawford who was accused of conspiring with Aug ust Machen and George Lorenz to defraud the government. Grawford has been convicted and if held will be liable to a fine of SIOO,OOO and seventeen years imprisonment. Of course he will not get all of that. Machen who was thu most thorough going and artistic grafter of the whole lot, got off with SIO,OOO fine (which he swore off under the pauper convict’s oath) and two years in the “pen” which he is now working out. Crawford of course has a chance of goingfree on his next trial, but the govern ment declares that it will be able to secure a final conviction. The proposal for a change of date in the inauguration ceren o nies has come up aEfain. Iden tical resolutions have been intro duced in both House and Senate providing for the postponement of the inauguration to the last Thursday in April. These meas ures are on the line of the late Senator Hoar’s resolution which twice passed the senate. The change has been urged by the haugural committee, backed by letters from the governors of 45 states. The measure also has the approval of the judiciary committees of both houses. Notice of Taxes.

Vo This Body Any Persons Contem plating Death Are Invited to Tell Their Troubles—Work to Be Sought For Unemployed and Advice Given to Despairing—Experiences of Wo men Begging For Aid. To stay the hands of the self de stroyers and to render all possible aid to the despondent is the object of the antisuicide commission recently ap pointed by Mayor Tom L. Johnson of Cleveland, O. Frederick C. Howe, state senator elect; William A. Greenluml former probation officer of the juvenile court, and the Rev. Harris It. Cooley, member of the board of public service, comprise the commission, says a Cleve land special dispatch to the New York World. Every person in Cleveland who is contemplating suicide is invited to write a letter to the antisuicide com mission and tell his troubles. For peo pie despondent from nonemployment the commission will endeavor to ob tain employment, while the needs and wants of others seeking aid will be looked after. “It is the grandest work ever at tempted here,” said Mayor Johnson. 44 1 think it is safe to say that GO per cent of the suicides here belong to the foreign element. Alcoholism is certain ly the basis of a large percentage of Insanity, but 1 should not connect it to that extent with suicide. Worry from any cause whatever and low nervous condition are chiefly responsible* “This commission will investigate these conditions and wherever possible will render such assistance as will make the victim of melancholia see the brighter side of life. Each of those men has had much experience in socio logical work and is well fitted for this particular task. “It is a psychological and sociological question well worth going into. The subject is interesting from every point of view,” said Commissioner Green lund the otner night. “Most suicides are caused by despondency, but th primary cause of the despondency is what we should look into. If we can help only one unfortunate I consider it work well done,” is the way Commis sioner Cooley looks at his new duty, and Commissioner Howe said, “In my opinion present social conditions and lack of employment cause much of the despondency and dissatisfaction with one’s lot iu life, which so often ends in suicide.” In the first nine months of this yeai eighty-six persons killed themselves in Cuyahoga county, almost ten for eacfc month. Alienists of Cleveland say sui cide is increasing. The need of some means to counteract this condition caused Mayor Johnson to act. Of the objects of the commission Mr. Greenlund said: ‘*We are willing and anxious to aid any one who is in the depths of despair. If any unfortunate man, woman, girl or boy who is so dis couraged that life seems not worth liv ing will communicate with us the case will be taken up, and we will see whal can be doue. How many suicides would be prevented if the sick, poor and despondent had friends to go to, a place to get relief! I dare say many.” The commission has received numer ous letters appealing for aid. One, from a society woman, reads as fol lows: “I wish you would toll me what 1 might do to arrest an impulse toward suicide which comes upou me every once in awhile, more frequently now than iu former years. When I was six teen a foolish love affair and the in fluence of a novel wherein the heroine had died from a seif inflicted wound inspired me to stab myself in the throat. I must tell £ou that the wound hurt me little, so little indeed that ever after when I am discouraged death seems no more serious a matter than making a call across the street The attempt at suicide in my youth was hushed up. I hi*ve been married happily, move in what is good society here and should be free from any mor bidness, but reading affects all my emotions, and reading is about all that I can find pleasure in, so you see in what difficulty I am. Is there some thing in your philosophy which can break the impulse, the desire, the long ing for death? So far as I am myself concerned I care not at all, but my family is one which takes a pride in itself and would look upon suicide as a blemish, a disgrace it would never for give.” Still another woman wrote telling of her experience in saving her husband’s life. She said: “I awakened about 2 o'clock to find my husband gone from my side. With terror at my heart I arose and searched one room after an other. At last I wrnnt to the kitchen. My husband was crouched in a corner, a great butcher knife iu his hand. His eyes glittered like a madman’s; he laughed and cried alternately. At first I feared the deed was already done and the wound already i:i his breasi Thank God. the knife had not yet fall en! I wrested it from my husband’s hand, and be fell into my arms, sob bing like a child. “I. too, frequently have a desire to end it all. My little girl comes home daily and asks, ‘What is this?’ and ‘What is that?’ and I have to profess ignorance. I am ashamed before my own child, and then comes the awful Impulse for self destruction. I go into the streets and walk for hours. Some times it is far into the nigb4 before ! return with the impulse fought down.” JAMH’S TRADE PLANS Commercial Conquest Begun With Same Vigor as War. EXPANSION IN BUSINESS EXPECTED Study to Improve the Cotton Indus try Being Made— Chunce For Amer ican Machinery Need of Outwlde Market Japanese Goods to Be Shown nt Foreign Centers. It is seen on every hand now, this evidence of Japan’s preparation for a much enlarged commercial and indus trial life, writes Miyaka Katokoro, a Tokyo correspondent of the Chicago Post. The vigor, the same patience and above all the same-splendid sys tem that were determining factors in the prosecution of the late successful war are to be directed toward the field and the factory, toward the merchant men and the railroad. Two reasons for this activity may be mentioned—first, the Japanese realize that if they are to benefit from the op portunities presented by the outcome of the struggle with Russia they, must not lose time; second, if they are not to lose some of the industries either grow ing directly out of the war or having been greatly stimulated by the war much more than a home market must be found to care for surplus manufac tures. The belief is strong iu Tokyo and particularly at Kobe and other indus trial centers that it will be but a short time till a distinct expansion In busi ness is noticed. It is also our belief that this activity is to come not so much through the establishment of new factories and enterprises as by reason of very greatly increased capacity on the part of the long established con cerns. We naturally would prefer our In dustries and commercial enterprises to grow on foundations already laid, for we have not forgotten the many busi ness enterprises that sprung up like plants of a night following the close of the war with China. Many of the rich Japanese who went into these ventures so readily with their money are now among our most conservative business men. They will act as a restraining in fluence on the enthusiastic. So we are busy just now seeing the most that may be done with what we have rather than reaching out to en courage things that we have not tried and which might not be successful. As an example of this I may speak of our cotton industry. A careful study is be yig made of every factory in the land. The number of spiudles and looms in each is being noted, together with the power now used to drive them. Where the power is iu excess of the machinery employed more machinery will be rec ommended, aud in places where the power already is inadequate to produce the best results greatly increased en gines will be declared advisable, and this wall mean increased machines. The object of the inquiry is first of all to see what use we are making of what we already possess and to bring it up to its fullest capacity before en largement. Most of our factories have been equipped with English cotton ma chinery and English engines and boil ers. I do not know whether there will be much change iu this particular in ordering for the prospective increases, but I am inclined to believe that it will take some years to wean the Japa nese from their partiality for English machines. Still, I should like to see representa tives of American machinery manu facturers, especially of cotton spinning and weaving, taking advantage of the opportunity to present the advantages of their machines to the Japanese just at this time when they are looking + o the securing of the best results to fol low their labors. Japan looks to China to find there her largest market for cotton products. The demand of the Chinese for cotton goods has been increasing steadily for more than 1 welve years. So far India dominates the Chinese market for cot ton, with Japan a close second. Owing to the nearness of these countries they must bold the market for a long time, no matter how enterprising other pro ducers at a distance may become. It seems to be the intention of the Japa nese to drive India from first place and become the ruling factor in the Chinese cotton market. I mention industries either greatly enlarged or established through the de mands of the war. Notably there are fish and meat canning factories. Dur ing the war the soldiers and the ships of the mikado took all the output of these factories. Now they have a ca pacity greatly in excess of the peace demands of the Japanese people. Sam ple shipments have been sent into Chi na, Korea, Australia and even to the United States. I understand that these shipments have been received with very great favor. We are reasona bly sure of a market for canned goods of this character, and as our supplies are near and abundant we look for a good export business. As showing the general activity of the Japanese and what they intend to accomplish I may speak of a statement published in Tokyo’s oldest paper, the Nichi Niehi Shimbun, to the effect that the government will soon establish commercial and industrial museums at various foreign centers. It will enlarge the Kobe and Yokohama custom houses, set up a commercial and indus trial commissioner’s office, finish the elevated railroad in Tokyo and during the next fiscal year found a Japanese- Chinese bank. It is also the intention of the government to appoint alert and expert commercial agents in Euros* and the United Stales. 28,000 ACRES 28,000 LiANDS. In all Parts of Bayfield County.
