Belief Expressed That Conditions of
Frontier Will Cause Greater Con
filet Than Dispute Over An
Tung Railway
(By Associated Press.)
VICTORIA, B. C., Aug. B.—Passen
gers who arrived on the steamship
Monteagle from- the Orient today, in
discussing the situation between Japan
and china, say conditions at Chlentao,
on the Korean border Is more likely to
cause serious trouble between the two
nations than the dispute over the An
. Mukden railway.
When the Monteagle sailed reports
had been received that the Chinese
had massed 3000 soldiers at Chlentao,
and collisions between them and Jap
anese police were frequent. Dispatches
received before sailing say that follow
ing the arrest of a party of Koreans
ley the Japanese at Chlentao, the- Chi
nese troops attacked the Japanese and
rescued the prisoners, several of the
Japanese being wounded.
A boycott has been declared against
the Japanese by the Chinese and
Koreans of the district.
In discussing the dispute over the An
Tung-Mukden railway B. H. Gill, a
prominent merchant at Kobe, Raid thai
many believe Japan Is acting unjustly
in the matter, as the treaty with China
provided that the improvements should
be made within two years of the date
of the treaty, the time limit having"
now expired. Mr. Gill says that In
discussing the treaty the Japanese pa
pers always omit reference to this
clause in the pact.
China May Withdraw Opposition
TOKIO, Aug. 9.—it is believed here
the- Chinese minister to Japan has re
ceived Instructions from Pekin In
which the objections of the Chinese
government to the reconstruction of
the An Tung-Mukden railroad and its
conversion into a standard gauge line
are completely withdrawn.

With their usual tactic of working
secretly, the enemies of Greater Los
Angeles have dispatched to San Fran
cis. a trusty representative to lay the '
whole situation before W. F. Herrln
of the Southern Pacific company. That
this conference Will take place today
is an open secret on the streets of San
Pedro, Who is the man intrusted to
inform Mr. Herrln of the desperate
condition of the corporative allies can

leaders realize CHat a man fully ac
quainted with the situation has been
dispatched to consult with the South
ern Pacific chief.
Fear Influence of Money
No ono doubts for a minute the re-
I sult of Thursday's election if only the
honest opinions and views of the vo
le is Impelled them to cast their bal
lots. Everyone in San Pedro recog
nizes the Inestimable benefits to be
derived from consolidation, though a
few, mainly from business reasons
and their connection with greedy cor
porations, are bitterly opposed to the
merger. If left to themselves,- San
Pedro voters would cast a vote Thurs
day that would compare well with the
overwhelming vote cast in Los Angeles
Wednesday, August 4. It is the un
derhand work of the corporation and
their represent that the consol
idation leaders have to fear.
At the San Francisco conference the
enemies of the free harbor will en
deavor to formulate a desperate plan
to defeat the known will of the voters.
What this plan will be Is probably un.
known to the corporations even, and
the consolidation leaders are totally
unprepared for the attack. They are
ready to meet, as they have met In the
! past, every honest and legitimate ar
gument against consolidation, and have
proven to every fair-minded voter that
consolidation Is not only desirable, but
I absolutely necessary to the future
prosperity of San Pedro, and they have
answered every objection made by the
opponents, so it is only underhand or
Illegitimate attacks that are feared.
In the face of the storm of protests
that followed the recent attempts of
the corporations to seize valuable fran
chises at San Pedro, it is considered
unlikely that the corporations would
descend to Illegal methods to turn the
result of the lection, but it is known
that the enemies of consolidation are
desperate and desperate methods will
l. awaited.
Fight Sure to Be Warm
Edward Mahar, superintendent of the
Running company, has said publicly
that there are not me ire than 375 c in
solidation votes in San Pedro. If the
enemies of a free harbor have deluded
thmselves by taking those figures as
a basis for their tight, it may he' that
they will content themselves with an
open, aboveboard light against consol
! idation, hoping tee win In the count of

are warned not to bel on t in■ result of

will be distributed to teams, automo

of the campaign promise to be very
warm for both sides of the great ques

will get from cover in a day or so, or
depend on "Influence" at the eleventh
hour, remains to be seen.

tempted Intimidation of Men in
Family of Miss Leonardo, Ree.
ommend Protective Measure
That the discharge of a working girl
from the Brennan elkskln shoe factory
at Wilmington because her relatives
voted for consolidation may lead to the
enactment of a California statute
against intimidation or other attempts
to control votes similar to those in
force in eastern states was evidenced
In comment on The Herald's account of
the Brennan incident yesterday.
"Some action ought to be taken to
prevent the recurrence of such an out
rage," was the opinion of members of
the Los Angeles consolidation commit
tee who were told of the action of J.
M. Brennan, the anti-consolidation
leader, when they visited Wilmington
Saturday night.
This was an echo of the general
opinion In Wilmington. It is not im
probable that attorneys on the consoli
dation committee will prepare a bill tee
be mitt.-el at the next session of the
legislature by assemblymen from Los
Angeles county providing a severe pen
alty for any encroachment on the rights
of the voter.
"The Brennan matter was the more
reprehensible because it was directed
at a family whose, members easily feel
any underhand attack on their dally
earnings," said Frank Garvin of Wil
mington, who circulated the petition
which obtained $50 for -Miss Mary
Leonardo from Wilmington citizens on
the morning she was discharged by
"Something ought to be done to stop
such business. It won't hurt Miss
Leonardo's brother any to have Bren
nan employes told they must not trade
at his meat market, because be will
get additional trade to make up for it.
I beep.- we can find a suitable position '
for Miss Leonardo In Los Angeles; in
fact, I am sure we shall have no
trouble, especially If she ran prepare
herself with a business education, for
we- have had assurance enough thai a
place of that kind will be made for her

of available homesteads, according to
official figures given out tonight, are:
Spokane reservation, 41; Coeur

It Is Intimated, however, that for
various reasons these may be in

The total acreage in the Coeur

Forest Service Takes Up Study in
Comprehensive ant' Systematic
Way, with Co.operaiton
of States
The waste wood heap continues to diminish
and pass away.
A Massachusetts manufacturer of . brushes
recently made a discovery In Maine which
supplied him with material exactly suited
to his purpose, lie went to the Pine Tree
stato to buy w0..el for the backs Of hair
brushes and the handles of shaving brushes,
and chanced to visit the yards of a spool
maker who was using white birch. The spool
man took the white part of the wood only
and was throwing away th» reel hearts. Thou
sands .if cords bad been burned or dumped
Into th.' lake to be got rid of.
The red hearts were exactly what the brush
maker wanted, and at little more than tho
expense of freight he supplied his factory.
This is typical or the trend of manufactur
ing. Waste nf wood Is still great, but It ls
decreasing. What one factory cannot use
another turns to profit. Formerly mills threw
away half the forest—tops left In the woods,
sawdust dumped in streams to pollute them
and destroy fish, slabs burned In perpetual
bonfires, and detective logs and low-grade
lumber abandoned as not worth moving.
Odds and Ends Used
This policy does not generally prevail now.
Some mills have put In machinery >o work
up their own ley-pro others sell their
waate to manufacturers who can use it, as
in the case cited In Maine. The properties
and uses of woods nl-e now subjects of careful
Investigation, and the problem of turning to
account the ..dels and ends and the by-products
Is brought more to the front now than for
The United States forest service has talon
up this study in a comprehensive and sys
tematic way. Investigations of the woods of
particular states are being conducted, usually
In co-operation with the states concerned.
Tie- plan, when fully carried out, will Include
every commercial wood In the United States,
not fewer than 200 species.
The properties of each will ho investigated,

When Charles Dudley Warner was
the editor of the Hartford (Conn.)
Press back in the '60s, arousing the
patriotism of the state, by his vigorous
appeals, one of the typesetters came in

himself before the editor, said: "Well,
Mr. Warner, I've decided to enlist ln
the army."
With mingled sensations of pride and
responsibility Mr. Warner replied en
couragingly that he was glad to see
that the man felt the call of duty.

compositor, "but I'd rather be shot

dale Range to Brush Up for Tele
graph Match to Be Held with
Four Teams August 15
Aside from half a dozen rapid fire
scores, the records bored out by the
Los Angeles Rifle and Revolver club
men at the Glendale range Sunday
would have pleased the northern clubs
Immensely could they have seen them.
Rapid fire forms a part of the match
with the northern Tacoma, Spo
kane, Seattle and North Yakima— to be
held August 15, and the local men are
busily practclng the hard stunt and
lotting their slow fire shooting suffer.
Crossman was high at KM yards with
the poor score of 41, getting hgih score
also at 200 yards rapid fire with 3!) on
the same target: Hansen was high at
300 yards with 41, while'Nclhols and
Felthensal tied for high at 600 yards
with another 41 score.
The entire string at 500 yards was
shot with the .reloaded ammunition,
and while It has proven satisfactory at
the shorter ranges, a high score has
never been made with it at tho longer
one. Hanson brought out a variety of
loads with the cast bullet, In the en
deavor to find something that would
give satisfaction at the 500-yard range
in spite of the tricky wind prevailing,
but the members have come to the con
clusion that the service stuff is prefer
able at the long range.
Experiments were the order of the
day, practically every crank out shoot
ing some new load in the endeavor to
find something better. Crossman and
Hanson tried out some service sharp
pointed bullets with 37 grains of light
ning behind them, but proved to be too
sensitive to the wind, although accurate
in other ways. Various loads of shot
gun powders were used at the shorter
ranges, some excellent combinations
being worked out.
A merrfber of the Tacoma club sept
Secretary Crossman a sample box of a
cast bullet that he Bays equals the ser
vice load In velocity, and these will be
thoroughly tried out after the coming
match with the northerners.
Rapid Fire Game
Hanson celebrated his Introduction
to the rapid fire game by forgetting
to raise his sights after one of his
numerous changes in ammunition and
then plugging five shots Into the bank
above the marker's head, driving fly,.
largo holes in the target from the fly
ing rocks. Crossman shot "a rapid lire
string on a bet with his military rifle
at 200 yards, putting all five shots in
the target in the time of eight seconds,
scoring 15 with the string. In ordin
ary rapid fire 20 seconds are allowed
for each string of five shots and the
shooting is done on a special target
using a figure life size of a kneeling
man, the figure being 40 Inches high
and score five for any part of it. The
shooting Sunday was done on the reg
ular 200-yard slow fire target, with
8-Inch bullseye and four rings meas
uring 26 inches, making the hits much
harder to make. Half a dozen of the
scores would have been possible on the
rapid fire target. .»-
The conditions of the match with the
northern clubs call for 10 shots rapid
fire at 200 yards, 10 shots each at 200
yards, 300 yards and 500 yards, slow
fire. Teams to consist of six men per
club. The last matoh was won by
Seattle, with 753, the local club scoring
737 and defeating Spokane and Ta
coma. This match will likely Include
North Yakima. Wash., a club which
Includes most of the Camp Perry men
of Washington, a slate that lands
from fifth to eighth place In the great
national match.
Range Is Proposed
The range has been staled off for
the skirmish run and August 22. under
the present plans, the club will hold
its first skirmish competition, shooting
on the regular 500-yard target used In
the National match. The 600-yard fir
ing point is being smoothed oft.and
shooting at this range will be done In
the future. More of a regular military
course will be followed in the future
for the benefit of the non-military
members of the club and also for the
practice of the military men who are
also members. Two of the club's men.
Sergeant Kellogg and Sergeant Peelus
made the California State Rifle team
to represent the state at the national
matches at Camp Perry, O. These are
the only Southern California men out
of the twenty sent north to make the
team and they ascribe much of their
success to the constant practice had
on the club range through the spring.
Following the Western Hardware and :
Arms off-hand trophy shoot on tho
29th. a new match will be shot, to lie
known as the combination match. This
will consist of Jen shots rapid fire with
the revolver at fifty yards, the time
limit to be ten seconds per string of
Aye shots: ten shots deliberate fire with
the revolver or pistol nt fifty yards;
ten shots rapid fire with the rifle at
200 yards, and ten shots each at 200
and 300 yards slow fire, any rifle and
any revolver or pistol to be allowed.
Many of the club's members are piste,!
shots and this match Is to make It
more Interesting for the men who like
both rifles and the hand gun.
