MAKE APPEAL FOR CONGO SUFFERERS Missionary Hoard Asks Rulers to Act Petition Is Forwarded to King Edward and President Roosevelt, Con. demnlng Delay and Asking Prompt Relief By Assorlfitffl Proas. PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 13.— At. a con ference of the foreign mlsßion boards of tho United Btatei and Canada here it hns been unanimously agreed to for ward to President Roosevelt, tho United States and King Edwnrd an appeal on behnlf of the Congo Free State. Tim nppoal follows: "The conference of tho fnrolßn mis sion bonrds of the United Stntos and the Dominion of Canada most respectively and earnestly bring to you an appeal in behalf of the stricken people of the Congo Free State. We do this in tho nmo of the forty missionary organiza tions whose work is prosecuted In nil sections of the world, nnd we are per suaded that the petition Interprets faith fully the sentiment of their constituency of upward of twenty millions of Chris tian men nnd women. "We are not forgetful thnt recogni tion has been given by both govern ments to international duty in relation to this unhappy people. It Is a source of keen satisfaction to us that our govern ments are united In leadership in a work so closely affecting international honor. But we are reminded by the recurrence of our annual meeting that weeks and months are passing while the heavy burden of wrong continues to rest upon the Congo people, and we recognize with profound regret, that the first definite step toward just international action has not yet been taken. Atrocities Are Admitted "We speak with deep conviction con cerning this issue, because we are inti mately associated with many residents of the Congo Free State by whom the conditions to which we refer have been disclosed. But you will not need to be reminded that other testimony than ours hnn been given to the character and credltablllty of these witnesses. A commission selected by King Leopold himself has said of them and of their fellow missionaries In the Congo that they constitute for the native the sole representative of equality and justice. Of their testimony, dreadful as it has been, the commission has declared that they found it well supported by wit nesses and official representatives. "The request which we, like the great company of petitioners of both govern ments outside our constituency are urg ing. Is obviously fair to all interests, since It nsks only for such impartial action as shall give authoritative rela tion of all facts and secure correction of such wrongs as shall be disclosed. We submit that the simple issue thus pre sented involves a primary test of na tional and international honor, and that the longer withholding of this manifes tation of International .concern for these wards of the nations would leave upon powers responsible for it a lasting re proach. "We would earnestly urge that no de vice of the ruler of the Congo State, whether of wholesale aspersion of mo tive or of evasion as accountability through promotion of transfer of terri tory to a government of which he Is himself tho head, shall be allowed to cloud the issue of international respon sibility for immediate ascertainment of conditions and corrcsctlon of wrongs. Issue Is a Plain One "The issue, as you are well aware, is not of motive but of fact, and the duty of guardianship binding the powers to protection of the people of the territory of the Congo busin is independent of political relations. Moreover, we would respectfully urge our conviction that If the king is a trustee he cannot transfer his trust except by international sanc tion. If the convening of an Interna tional conference was Important in the opening of the Congo territory it would seem that a conference for review of the issue In all Its phases is indlspenslble for wise and jurt dealing now. "In the name of humanity, of interna tional Justice, of regard for the primal rights of man, we ask that you use the full power reposed in governments by the supreme ruler In the Interest of an immediate discharge by the nations of their responsibility of guardianship over the remnant of the humble people who a generation ago, without choice of their own, were brought out of their isolation Into relations with the world of men and states."

RAILROAD SUED BY STATE FOR TAXES ILLINOIS CENTRAL MUST SHOW BOOKS Complicated Records of Company Are Confusing — Railroad Refuses to Obey State Law and Must Pay Penalty By Associated Press. SPRINGFIELD, 111!., Jan. 13.— The suit of Illinois against the Illinois Central railroad will be filed In the supreme court on Tuesday. The court will be asked to order an accounting. The state cannot ascer tain by reason of the complicated rec ords of the road just how much back taxes to claim, but this will be settled during the litigation. The company is required to pay the state 5 per cent of Its charter lines' gross receipts and must supply the state auditor with an annual state ment of all its property for the purpose of taxation. The taxes and the 5 per cent must equal at lease 7 per cent of the company's gross receipts. From 1859 to 1896, says the petition, the company refused to list with the auditor its stock, property and assets for the purpose of state taxation, and refused to pay into the treasury an amount equal to at least 7 per cent of the gross receipts or income derived from the charter lines. Among the other alleged practices of the road whereby the state loses its share of proceeds follows: Giving mileage books to newspapers valued at $1,488,700, carrying freight for branch lines without charging for terminal facilities for branch lines, al lowing rebates to ahjppcrs, collecting large sums from foreign roads as rental for rolling stock, falling to credit the same to charter lines. Since 1877 the company has presented false statements to the governor, says the bill, and has refused the governor permission to examine the road's books to ascertain the true condition of its affairs. The bill asks that the road be com pelled to make a full accounting of its gross proceeds, receipts and income. GOVERNMENT TO KEEP COST Roosevelt Makes Public Report on System of Record Keeping By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, Jan. 13.— President Roosevelt today made public a report on "Cost, Keeping in the Government Service," prepared by the Keep com mission. A cost system properly de vised and operated, the report says, will furnish information enabling the responsible head of the organization, to estimate more Intelligently the probable cost of future operations along similar lines and to fix proper selling prices on products transferred to other government organizations or sold to foreign governments or to pri vate individuals. The recommenda tions have the cordial indorsement of Secretary of the Treasury Shaw. Cost keeping, as a branch of account ing. Is a comparatively modern devel opment, the report says, and has not been introduced to any considerable extent in the government service, [n this mutter the government has much to learn from private business methods. In work of this character the institu tion of a thorough cost keeping system would make Intelligent comparisons possible and would tend to bring the less effectively conducted establish ments up to the standard of the best. The report recommends that cost keeping systems be installed in all 1 ranches of the government service where it is possible to do so. The public printer Is working out tho details of an elaborate cost keeping Hystem which he is about to Install in the government printing office. INTENSE COLD ADDS TO SUFFERINGS OF FAMINE STRICKEN NORTHWEST ST. PAUL, Jan. 13.— A cold wave of considerable intensity has developed in the wake of the heavy snow storm in eastern Montana and western North Da kota.

Old stockmen say the outlook is more serious for their herds than at any time since the memorable winter of 1887-88, when the losses were extremely heavy. SAYS JAPANESE EXCLUSION LAW WOULD BE SILLY David Starr Jordan Gives Views President of Ueland Stanford Univer. sity Asserts Move Against Friendly Nation Would Be "Hood. lum Measure" By Associated PfSSS, SAN FRAffCISCO, Jan. 13.— "N0 congress could pass a Japanese exclu sion act and no president would sign one, because it would lir n hoodlum act," said David Starr Jordan, presi dent of Stanford university, in address- Ing a meeting at Equity hall tonight of Socialists, by whom ho had been in vited to speak on the Asiatic problem. Continuing Dr. Jordan said: "We don't care a straw what nation our friends come from. The resemblance is greater than the difference between Americans and the Japanese, but it is right that California should think that she would rather on the, whole that this should be an Anglo-Saxon state." Dr. Jordan quoted President Roose velt in saying that as a general rule "It paid for a nation to be a gentle man," and he was of the opinion that the remedy for the immigration trou bles did not lie in lawlessness, nor yet in mass meetings denouncing the Jap anese as a nation because they did not go to the same Sunday school we at tend. He prefaced his remark.-* on immi gration with a sketch of the Japanese at homo as he had found them during his stay in Japan, saying that they gave themselves more than any other people to making each other happy. Dr. Jordan denied that the Japanese were more given y< vice than western nations. "It is not true," said he, "that we shut the Japanese children out of our schools because they have some peculiar Jap anese vices that other children do not have. "There can be no exclusion act aimed at a gentlemanly nation, that is a nation with a stable government. They would resent it. But lam assured by Japanese officials whom I know that they are will ing to enact a law themselves prohibit ing the immigration of unskilled labor into this country. They arc willing to keep their children out of our yard, but they do not want us to drive them out with our bulldogs. "It is all nonsense that we have to fight with Japan to see who shall have the mastery of the Pacific. That coun try will have the supremacy which has the best goods to sell, wrapped up in the most attractive parcels, and for sale at the cheapest prices. Trade follows the (lag when it is on a merchant vessel. "Supremacy of battleships has noth ing to do with supremacy of trade. The. good will of Japan is the best asset this coast has and it is always a bad plan to begin a trade by hitting your customer over the head. If you find It necessary to take his hat off there are several ways to do it rather than knock it over his eyes or to hit it up from behind. "This city pays for its schools and it has a right to run them as badly as it did fifteen years ago if it wants to. It may have the right to exclude all aliens, but I doubt if it has the right to exclude the aliens of one sin gle nation. In any case it might have been done more gracefully. "It is only the hoodlums that make the trouble and every time a boy throws a tomato can at a Japanese he makes the question so much harder of settlement. I do not think the ar gument of permanent race differences is so^ strong after all." Dr. Jordan said he believed Japan was sincere in its desire to stem the unskilled labor immigration to this country.
