DRUNKEN RIOTERS SLAY GOVERNOR Chief Executive of Caracas Is Assas sinated by Crowd of Intoxicated Partisans of Rebel Leader By Associated Press. CARACAS, Fob. I.— General Luis Mata y lias, the governor of Caracas, was assassinated last night by a crowd of intoxicated partisans of Vicente Gomez, the first vice president of the republic. Among the assassins was Eushio Gomez, a. companion of tho vice presi dent. They spent the evening riotous ly, shooting pistols, drinking and cry- Ing, "Long live Gomez." General Mata y Has drove to the cafe where the men were for the pur pose of remonstrating with them. They invited the governor into tho cafe to drink with them. He continued his remonstrances, when tho crowd suddenly opened fire on him. The assassins wero arrested.

I.— The Thaw jury 1b at last complete and the actual In troduction of evidence is scheduled to commence Monday morning. Further weeding out of the panel Is not Impos sible, however, as District Attorney Je rome, who has been contending since yeserdny afternoon for the removal of one of the men now In the Jury box, but who has failed to gain the consent of the defendant's counsel to a change, was still reluctant as court adjourned today to begin '-he actual proceedings without a further opportunity to plead with 'Fhaw's advisers. At his request therefore Justice Fitz gerald ordered all talesmen who have not yet been examined to be in court Monday morning ready for Jury service in case any are needed. Mr. Jerome then unnounced that if there should be no change in the situation in the mean time that the Btate would proceed to place all its uirect testimony before the Jury at the Monday morning session. The defense was notified to De in readi ness to proceed by Monday afternoon. "We are entirely satisfied with the jury," said Clifford W. Hartrldge, Thaw's leading counsel, tonight, and ho added the intimation that he would not consent to any further alterations of the personnel. "The defense vill be ready to proceed the mlnue the prosecution has finished its case," declared John li. Gleason, another of Thaw's attorneys. Comes as a Surprise The selection of the twelfth juror came as a complete surprise at the end of a long and tedious day — the eighth of the trial — and Immediately after this last member of the trial panel had been sworn in Justice Fitzgerald adjourned court until 10:30 o'clock Monday morn- Ing. Assistant District Attorney Garvan will make the opening address for the prosecution. His remarks will be brief. The state will then introduce such wit nesses as are necessary to prove Stan ford White was shot and killed by Har ry K. Thaw on the Madison Square gar den the night of June 25 last. In announcing that the introduction will not requiro more than one session of court Mr. Jerome is evidently of the opinion that the cross-examination of the state's witnesses to the actual events associ od with the tragedy may not be very extensive. From the questions which have so persistently been put to the- talesmen by Thaw's attorneys as to any preju dice against a defense of insanity, it la at last generally conceded that a plea of emotional insanity will lie the main reliance of the young defendant. This probably will lead to a eross qileStionlng of the state's witnesses atl to any peculiarity they may have no ticed in Thaw's conduct the night of the tragedy, In which event the conclusion Of the slate's direct testimony may tak" longer than is now anticipated. Thaw seemed to be In the best of spirits as the last juror was sworn. Is Forty-first Talesman Forty talesmen had ' n examined in vain during the day. when Bernard Qerstman declared he had no suoh opinion 'In the case that could prevent his rendering ;i fair and conscientious venMot, and he was not prejudiced against any line of defense and would give the prisoner the benefit of every reasonable doubt. "Hut," suggested Dlatrlot Attorney Jerome, "would you go farther than that and require the state to remove every possibility of doubt?" "I would certainly want every doubt removed," replied Qerstman, "before i would vote to convict In a capital ease." The district attorney challenged the Juror for cause. Thaw's attorneys ware not content to let the talesman bd, and on cross-ox aminatlon they brought his answers within the legal requirements Mr, Qeretman replying t" Mr. Hartrldgu that he meant by "doubt" any dOUbl that a reasonable man nii^M entertain. Juatlce Fitagerald held this to be a competent answer and overruled im.s trlot Attorney Jerome's challen- ■. "Tin- people are content!" announced Mr. Jerome, and the Juror was sworn. Thaw smiled In evident satisfaction, ■» « » — RUEF AMD DINAN'S CASE CONTINUED FOR A WEEK Ny Associated Press. San FRANCISCO, Feb.

The Solo mon Islands, in "ie South seas, were visited by a fearful earthquake several months ago ami so heavy was the force of the temblor that the earth was opened and deep gorges created. The entire coast line of 'te Islands was changed by the great upheaval, but as far as can i>e ascertained there was no loss of life. The news wag brought here by Gov ernor C. B. L. Moore, who arrived on the Oceanic company's steamer Sierra yesterday from Samoa. He staled that a trading schooner name into Apia from the Solomon group before he left for this country with news of the temblor. Tlie details brought by the trader were meager. It is deemed probable that the earth quake that was experienced in the Sol omon islands was the one recorded on the seismographs in various parts of the world. According to the instru ment tit Apia, Samoa, it lasted for several minutes and was said to be the heaviest shock ever recorded. It was figured that :t took place somewhere in the South seas, but as no report came in from the civilized islands It was thought that it took place at sea. Australia Is Shaken By Associated Press.

SAYS ALIENS STOP R ACE'S INCREASE Wesleyan Professor Says Immigrants Decrease Size of Families and Pre- diets Dire Disaster Unless Conditions Change By Associated press. CHICAGO, Feb. I.— Professor F. C. Marshall of Ohio Wesleyan university, in an address on "Race QRectß of Immi gration" at the University of. Chicago, declared race suicide in America is due io the influx of Immigration Into the country. He said American stock had been lowered many notches and de clared the present situation Is alarm ing. America today would have a popu lation of 1011,000, not) instead of 80,000,000 if it had retained Its original colonial stock, according to his figures, Theso are based on the country's growth for the ilrst fifty years, at the end of which Immigration began to be a severe in fluence on the rate of increase of pop ulation. "It Is still an open question as to whether the early Immigrants did not produce a check In colonial stock, " Pro fessor Marshal; said, "but it is figured on what appears ti> be a reliable basis that the population or the country would have been 100.000,000 U It had gone on at the rate of Increase <>f the first fifty years of the country's his tory. "The law- of population show that there is probably a casual connection between the Immigration and the checking of population. The native Stock, Of course, has a great race pride. As soon as Immigrants came over with their lower standard of living it became necessary to reduce the. size of familial to keep up their standard of living. "The early immigrant caused a de cline of the birth rate ami ;i displace ment Of the colonial slock, although ii did not produce a serious racial change.

Tii' «c rlel fever scourge which is sweeping over the City at a rate which is striking terror to th.' hearts of Chieagoans has been traced to the Impure milk supply, which g from tlit; country towns around the lake (it y. Health Officials of Ultnoifl and Wis consin have joined in their efforts to stamp out scarlet fever and other con tagious diseases in the centers from which the greatest part of the milk supply of ( Ihlcago comes. This action follows an investigation by chemists In charge of the city lab oratories, which discloses the fact that carloads of cream and milk are being shipped in by a roundabout route from Genoa Junction ami liassetts station, Wisconsin, places in which the fever epidemic is so virulent that shippers had been forbidden to send milk to Chicago without wr'tten permission from the health board. City Council <-\cts The health committee of tho city council yesterday took drastic measures to suppress the epidemic. They author ized the employment of 250 additional medical Inspectors who, with the in spectors already employed, will guard all the public schools constantly. The second move was to urge the council to appropriate $ir>,ooo at once for a contagious disease hospital. The committee passed a resolution exonerating the city heaith department from charges of inefficiency and neglect of duty. Dr. J. A. Egan, secretary of the state board of health, arrived in the city yesterday and conferred with Health Commissioner Whalen. He is investi gating conditions over Northern Illi nois. He considers the conditions grave and will continue his inquiry today. The Onk Park board of health, at a meeting last night, decided to close the village schools until the i old ?mlc is stamped out.

MOB WOULD LYNCH NEGRO MURDERER Sheriff Foils Plans of Armed Men to Exact Quick Vengeance for Slaying of Woman and Child By Associated Press. GLOBE, Ariz., Fb. I.— A telephone message from Koosevelt this evening states that an attempt made to lynch William Baldwin, the negro charged with the murder of Mrs. . Jorrla and her child yesterday, ailed through the de termination of Sheriff Thompson to pro tect the prisoner. Sheriff Thompson left Roosevelt at 5 o'clock this evening for Globe.

PRICE: SINGLE COPY 5 CENTS SEES MENACE IN INFLUX OF BROWN MEN Pork ins Says Conflict With Japanese Is Inevitable United States Will Never Accept the Orientals, States Senator Member of California Delegation Dis. cusses War Talk— Would Submit Differences to Hague Tribunal for Settlement By ARsnclntetl Press. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1.-in an ad tonight before the National Geo graphical society, Senator Pnrkins of California dwelt at length upon the probability of a conflict between the Americans and Japanese, "two Irrecon clllahle races," as ho pronounced them. Senator Perkins said: "Hawaii has tho Japanese on her hands as we in California will soon have, and as this people is more ag gressive, more tenacious, more cunning and more determined than the Chinese, it will never do to permit a long delay before settling the question for all. "For the people of Japan have started out on a course of commercial develop ment which will soon bring the United States and Japan so close together that it will be difficult to settle the question at all. Japan is still in the flush of its great triumph over what was consid ered the largest of European powers. It successfully interposed a barrier to Russian supremacy in eastern Asia. Japanese Would Expand "The primary ambition of Japan is to colonize the overflow population of the empire in adjacent countries under its own sovereignty. This is the true be ginning of real national expansion, but in addition to this the inherent Jap anese traits of patriotic impulses will make them a foreign element in any^> country to which they may migrate. Real expatriation is a condition practi cally Impossible to the Japanese mind. "The extent to which the Japanese will occupy the territory of friendly powers will he a displacement of the sovereignty of tho power extending to them a wel come and the presence of the sov ereignty of the mikado of Japan. "Japan, as the dominant oriental na tion, will naturally form with the other oriental nations an alliance which will consolidate the nations into effective co-operation. "The science of war supervenes only upon a foundation of all other sciences. No nation in all history has exhibited a greater capacity for unity of purpose. than the Japanese; no nation has mani fested a greater aptitude to seize upon and appropriate all that the English have discovered in the other nations In art, science and in government. Will Never Assimilate "The Japaneso wherever distributed will remain a considerable unit in the aspirations of tho Japanese race, and however distant their residence from the throne of the mikado will still con stitute an element of strength in the unity of the empire. Naturalization in any country to which they might mi grate will not eliminate this racial in stinct. "Conflicts between nations are .the re sult of antagonism which underlies the very foundation of their purposes, their aspirations, their life and expansion. "The presence of Russia as a prime factor in the commerce of the Pacific coast was inimical to the aspirations of tho Japanese empire in the same line. (Continued on I'mje Two.)
