RUSSIA RECEIVES PROPOSAL
OF UNCLE SAM
SOLUTION TO PROBLEMS WILL
BENEFIT CHINA
Neutralization, bf Railroads and Their
Sale te,'China, Backed by In.
Jatrnational Syndicate, is
Urged

ST. PETERSBI RG, Jim. s.—The
Russian foreign office has received a
memorandum from the United Btt
government proposing as a solution
for the Manchurlan problem the neu
tralization of railroads In Manchuria
by their pale to China, financed by an
international syndii
The United States Invites Russian
participation. A supervision of the
railroads would be placed thereby In
the bands of the powers responsible
for the financial arrangement, who
would see that the lines wire con
ducted on a purely business basis, and
not used for political or strategic pur
poses.
Last October, when a meeting was
arranged at Harbin between m. Ko
kovsoff, Russian minister of finance,
and Prince Ito, president of the Jap
anese privy council, Russian railroad
interests in" Manchuria were being con
sidered. The success of the present
plan is dependent upon the assent of
Japan.
The advantages of such an arrange
ment from the viewpoint of interna
tional relations are believed to be
many. It would remove a constant
source of friction between Russia and
doctrine of equal oppor
tunity would be safeguarded by the
powers, and by closing the line to the
transportation of tn munitions
Russia's anxiety with reference to a
Japanese attack upon Siberia would
be relli
Russia Is Careful
Russia, however, is not willing to
accept the suggestion of the United
States without giving the subject care
ful study, An answer to the memo
randum may be expected in a week,
perhaps a month, for experts are en
gaged in an investigation of the whole
matter and the cabinet has taken
cognizance of the memorandum.
Tne \ . ■ . him further
announ syndicate composed
of American- aval Englishmen b
tamed the concessioji for the con
strui tion oi the railroad from Aigun, in
northern Manchuria, to Chin Chow Fu,
and that the British and American
governments Intend to support it
diplomatically. This part of the
memorandum has been receh d less
..:>■ by Russia, for officials have
.■ that Russia would strenuously
ing or the Russian
railroad at Tsltslkhar, and would be
unwilling tor a railroad to appro,
weak Amur frontier.
This would o heavy concentra

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5.— With a
of inakin.tr International arbli
tion judicial in fact as well as in
theory. Secretary Knox has addressed
a circular note to the powers propos
ing that the jurisdiction of the Inter
national Prize court, authorized In 1907
by The Hague peace conference, be ex
tended so as to make it a court <>r
arbitral justice.
Tliis note was dated October 18,
1909. Xo responses have been received, i
A statement explaining the note and
■ mis for it was given out tonight
by Secretary Knox.
The International Prize court was to
I),- composed of fifteen judges, eigl I
iosen from the larger maritime
countries, Germany, Austria-Hungary,
France, Great Britain, Italy. Japan
and the United States, to serve six
years. Other judges were to be oho
from other nations for varying pen
In his statement Secretary Knox
says: "The advantage of Investing the '
prize court with the functions of a
of arbitration needs no argu
ment, because it is obviously easier to
utilize an existing body than to create j
!W institution, and the judges of ]
the prize court must necessarily be
versed in international law.
"The proposition has the very great
advantage of providing the nations
with a permanent court of arbitration
for the peaceful settlement of contro
versies in times of peace, whereas the
prize court, as such, presupposes a
state of war.
Would Create Tribunal
"Utilizing the method of composition
of the prize court by thus Investing It
with the jurisdiction and functions of
B court of arbitral justice would con
stitute this latter a tribunal, and the
world would thus have one interna
tional judge to adjudge cases arising
in pence as well as war. The i -
would thus be permanently consti
tuted, obviating tie delay involved In
the creation Of a temporary tribunal
and developing international law by a
series of carefully considered preee
by judges carefully chosen.
"Arbitration would not merely bi
botli inferences have Bald, the
most efficacious and most equitable
method of settling disputes which
diplomacy has failed t .« adjust, but
would be judicial in fact."
Secretary Knox proposed that na
tions confronted with constitutional
objections in the matter of direct ap
peal from tii";;' national courts to the
prize court in 1 tent, ] ent, instead of
the judgment of their national courts,
the question Involved In the capture
at issue: that the proceedings In such
:i case should be in the nature of a re
trl il, not mi rely an appeal.
"The United States lias not submit
ted judgmi tit "i Ito i ourt to Interns -
tlonal tribunal," explained Secretary
Knox, "though it hns frequently
presented questions Involved In its
courts to mixed commissions', and has
promptly paid the awards when the de
cision of the mixed commission has
taxed the United Btates with liability
not found by its national court."

BREWERY POWER
TO BE ABOLISHED
(Continued from Pub One)
permit. Mr. L,owenstein states that lie
owns the fixtures, stock and lease and
that he is paying lor the permit (this
permit was held by the Maier brewery
for one year at Sixth and Broadway
without being used). Since the com
mence ment of this investigation T. P.
Roberts on December 22, 19U9, saw Mr.
Lowenstein, and under threat that the
license would be taken from the place
induced Mr. Lowenstein to give T. P.
Roberts a half interest in his business,
paying fol- same with the permit held
by tile same T. P. Roberts, or in other
words, Mr. Lowenstein's note for $in.i)oo
Is canceled. Your committee believes
that this partnership is a subterfuge
designed to defeat the object of this In
vestigation, also that this S. Lowen
stein in the chief's report of last June
refused any information, and therefore
.recommends that T. P. Roberts be
cited before your honorable body to
show cause why this permit should not
he revoked.
The ... miii lnr Hie saloon at 4L'l South
Main street, known as the Phoenix
bar, is: held by one Arthur Pitcher, a
barber, who has no financial int. rest
in the place and who holds this permit
as a dummy for the Maler brewery.
This place is managed by one W. I.
Cannon, and all proceeds are deposited
in the Farmers and Merchants hank in
the name ot T. I. Roberts.
I understand that the permit for this
place wits valued by the wholesalers'
board of trade at $10,000, and held as
an asset in the bankruptcy proceed
ing.'! about a year ago, This, however,
I have not had time to verify. Since
this Investigation Mi-. Pitcher has been
very busy around the Phoenix bar,
und possibly has assumed a tempo
rary partnership. Your committee
would rt ommend that Mr. Pitcher be
cited to show cause why this permit
should not bo revoked.
Held by Roberts
The saloon known as the Exchange
bar, at 714 East First street, la owned
by Pecotto & Daman-is. This permit
is held by one T. I. Roberts, the stock
and fixtures are owned by Pecotto &
Damarels, and the lease is held by the
Mater Brewing company. .Mr. Roberts
endeavored to have these people give
him a half Interest in this saloon in
exchange for the permit. It appears
to me that this commission is not in
the business of making T. P. Roberts
a partner in half or the saloons in Los
Angeles at no cost to himself, and your
committee recommends that T. P.
Roberts bo cited to show cause why
this permit should not be revoked.
Your committee also visited the sa
loon owned by Joe Wood at Seventh
street and Maple avenue. The license
for this place IS owned by one H.
Tepper, the stock and fixtures by
Wood, and the property is leased by
William Garland to the Maier Brew
ery company, who in turn lease it to
Wood, with an additional charge of
$50 a month for the permit, this being
so understood and agreed on by Wood.
Your committee recommends 'hat H.
Tepper lie cited to show cause why
this permit should not be revoked.
Tile saloon at the southwest corner
of Fourth anil San Pedro streets is
owned by I. Schal'ei. Mr. Schafer
states that lie has bought this place,
but that the brewery ho!.ls the permit
in the name of F. Uade'machor, an
employe of the .Maier brewery, until
such time as his indebtedness of $10,-
i,i on. i inn srstand that about
half of it has I n paid. Your com
mlttee would recommend thai !■'.
Rademacher be cited to show can ,
why his permit should not be revoked.
T.i. ralnon at the southwest corner
of Fourth ami Los Angelej is owned
by C. P. Cooke, but the permit, is held
In Hi" name of J. Nash and the lease
is held by the Maier Brewery from
George Pike. The usual donation to
the Maier brewery tor charitable pur
poses of Jnfi (i month was made in this ,
case, Your committee would recom
mend that Mr. Nash be cited to show
cause why his permit should not be
revoked.
Agent of Brewery
The saloon at the northwest corner
of Seventh ami Alain streets Is owned
by Victor Hopf. Mr. Hopf claims that
he owns the stock and fixtures. The
permit for this place is held by one
George Plirmann, in the Interests of
the Maier Brewing company, who
owns the loa.se of the building. Mr.
Hopf also states that he donates to
the Maier Brewing company WO a
month for the right to do business In
the city of Los Angeles. Your com
mittee recommends that George Pfir
lnaini be cited in show cause why this
permit should not be revoked.
It will appear to your honorable
body that the Maier Brewing company
is the principal offei ier against the
morals Of the City, but I expect to
show, however, in a lat-r report that
other breweries are equally culpable.
Ami while this report is an Indict
ment against the methods of the brew
eries in controlling the liquor busi
ness, my Investigations disclose the
fact that they have been greatly as
sisted by the rapacity of the land
lord. The:;,- farts I will also present
to your honorable bods'.
In 1889 the city council passed an or
dinance creating a zone in which liquor
could be sold and prohibiting the po
