DALAI LLAMA- HEAD OF HIER
ARCHY' FLEES FOR LIFE
Emperor Disregards Petitions to In.
terfere in the Interests
of the Outraged
Budhdlsts
[Associated Press!
CALCUTTA, British India, Feb. 23.—
Chinese troops today entered Lhassa,
the capital of Thibet and the residence
of the Dalai Llama, the supreme head
of the Llamaist hierarchy, who, upon
the approach of the soldiers, fled with
several of his ministers into : India.
Serious trouble has been anticipated
owing to the action of the small Chi
nese army which, marching from Sze
Chuen, China, subdued Eastern Thibet, |
levying contributions on the Llama's j
home and showing no respect for the
monasteries.
The Thibetans, resenting the desecra
tion of their holy places, petitioned the ,
foreign board of China, praying that the
emperor interfere In the Interest of I
the Buddhists. The petition was dis
.regarded, as the Chinese propose to
make the administration of the country
I purely Chinese.
I 1 The Dalai Llama appealed to Lord
I Mlnot, the viceroy of India, but the
I latter .refused to intervene. When the
■ Chinese troops were reported as mov
ing from the province of Khan, osten
sibly to strengthen the garrison at
I 1 Lhassa, the Llama hastily left the
capital and proceeded toward Darjiling.
WILLIAMS, Ariz., Feb. Immigra
tion Officer Thies came in from Ash
Fork this morning bringing John Oli

Oliver is alleged to be a smuggler of

CHINA FLOODING THIBET WITH
TROOPS TO CRUSH BUDDHISTS
LONDON, Feb. 23.—The flight from
Lhassa of the Dalai Llama will cause no
surprise to close observers of the Chl-i
nese attitude toward the Thibetan fron
tier, who were in Peking. It then be
came evident that the Chinese govern
ment had no intention of permitting
him to resume his sway at Lhassa so
far as civil power was concerned, and
attempts were even made to bar his
passage during his return home.
Following up his policy of "China for
the Chinese" the government deter
mined to make more effective its con
trol over the land of the Llamas. Ac
cordingly, plans to this end have been
pushed In border provinces for two
years, and now China has sent an army
of 25,000 anti-Buddhist troops into the
Thibetan capital. , ; --..
• This army was drilled by Japanese
officers and is equipped with mountain
and machine guns and wireless appara
tus. - .•■ ■ •_- ■;■ ■- . • ** '
In the earlier stages of the movement,
the Chinese met with severe reversals
on the ■ frontier, where they were am
bushd by the tribesmen. On one oc

and some guns captured. ';'. •

BANK'S CAPITAL
STOLEN BY CLERK
SURPLUS ALSO WIPED OUT BY
EMBEZZLER
Doors Closed by Examiner and War
rant Issued for Arrest of
the Bookkeeper, George
W. Coleman
{Associated Press!
BOSTON, Feb. 23.—Following the
discovery that the National City bank
of Cambridge had been looted of $144,
--000, the institution was closed today,
probably forever, by National Bank
Examiner Pepper, acting on behalf of
the controller of the currency.
Later a warrant was issued for the
arrest of George W. Coleman, a book
keeper of the bank, who was last
heard of in Kansas City a few days
ago. Coleman is charged with em
bezzlement.
The bank is insolvent, the capital
stock of $100,000 and the surplus hav
ing been wiped out by the defalcation.
Former Governor John L. Bates, the
receiver, will liquidate the remaining
assets.
Bank officials suspected that Cole
man's accounts might be incorrect last
Thursday and requested Mr. Pepper to
go over the books. On Friday Cole
man fled, and Monday night friends
received a telegram from him dated
Kansas City, Mo. This said he would
be home tomorrow.
The wrecked bank carried deposits
of $127,432, mostly the money of small
tradesmen. It was organized in 1853.
Among the stockholders is Charles W.
Eliot, president emeritus of Harvard
university.
Under the national banking lawi the
stockholders are liable to assessment
if the asets are not sufficient to pay
the creditors in full. Bookkeeper Cole
man Is 27 years old and is the -son
of a prominent Cambridge business
man. He is unmarried. He is treasur
er of the Boston branch of the Kissel
Kar company, a St. Louis automobile
concern. He maintained two touring
cars and a kennel of dogs and was re
garded as a "liberal spender."
FINAL BATTLE IN RATE
WAR FOUGHT DESPERATELY
"Portland Gateway" Case Before Su
preme Court Argued by Counsel
for Railroad and Government
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.-, What pur
ports to be the final contest over the
famous "Portland Gateway case" took
place today before the supreme court of
the Ui.ited States, when counsel ttjr
both sides of the controversy argued
the dispute. Charles W. Bunn ap
peared for the Northern Pacific rail
way company and Wade H. Ellis, assis
tant to the attorney general, for the
government.
The controversy is whether the order
of the interstate commerce commission,
requiring the Northern Pacific to enter
into joint rates betweon Puget sound
points and (•astern points via Portland,
Ore., is to stand. The principle in
volved, it Is said, reaches every section
of the country.
FOREST LANDS FOR INDIANS
WASHINGTON. Feb. 23.—The senate
today passed a bill allowing the al
lotment of lands in forest reservations
to Indians in case of the exhaustion
of their reservations. Senator Hey
burn argued that the bill would give
Indians a preference over white men,
but Senator Clapp called attention to
the fact that the whites had this right.

KILLING OF DANIEL TODD PUTS
SUSPICION ON SON
Latter Declares to Have Taken Moth.
er's Revolver and Rushed from
House After Demand for
Coin Was Refused
The killing by Edward B. Keyeß
Tuesday night of Daniel Todd, nißht
watchman at the oity Incinerator and
special deputy .sheriff appointed to
guard the property and lives of the
J. (i. De Turk family, may result in
ending the mystery of the several
anonymous letters received by Keyes'
mother, Mrs. Dollie De Turk, whose
real entate possessions are reputed to
be worth $500,000.
Sheriff Hammel and his deputies,
who have made Keyes and the De
Turks, husband and wife, prisoners,
pending the verdict of the coroner's
j jury today, are said to have formed the
opinion that their 21-year-old prisoner
I may know something- of the authorship
of the letters which threatened death
were she to neglect to give the writer
money.
The youth and his mother quarreled
Tuesday evening over his demand for
money. Keyes was drinking, and his
mother refused his request. When he
threatened to leave home and started
out carrying a revolver Mrs. De Turk
had supplied herself with to protect
her life from the writer of the'threat
enlng letters, she summoned Deputy
Sheriff Todd from the incerator
grounds, a few rods distant. In his
efforts to obtain possession of the re
volver and compel the youth to remain
at home the weapon was discharged
and Todd was shot through the heart.
The fact that the son had demanded
money and had armed himself when
money was refused him by his mother
is the lever, the authorities are said
to be planning to use in an effort to
pry open the secrets of the authorship
of the anonymous letters. Young
Keyes laughed scornfully when the
letters were mentioned. He scoffed at
his mother's fears.
' One of the letters, the first, con
tained a demand for $1000. The son's
life was to be the forfeit if it was not
placed at a designated place in the in
cinerator grounds. Other letters de
•manded amounts ranging from $1000
to $10,000.
SOURCE OF TRUST
EVILS POINTED OUT
English Statesman Makes Terse Re.
marks About United States in
Debate in House of
Commons
LONDON, Feb. 23.—1n moving the
tariff reform amendment to the address
In reply to the speech from the throne
in the house of commons, Austin
Chamberlain today made a plea for a
finance system that should afford, first,
a preference to productions, so as to
give employment to the people, and,
second, a preference to British produc
tions overseas, to the end that the em
pire might be more closely consolidated.
•■The test of any finance system," he
said, "is in the provision it makes for
the comfortable subsistence of the larg
est number." .
This, lie said, had been the object of
Great Britain's foreign competitors in
framing their tariffs. No tariff re
former desired a monopoly of the Brit
ish markets or to prevent the proper
regulation of prices between buyer and
seller.
"The situation in the United States
is constantly referred to," he continued,
■'but they have duties out of all com
parison with anything suggested here.
It is not the American tariff that has
preserved the trusts in the United
States, but the weakness of the central
authority in America, the great com
plexity of state jurisdiction and the in
ability of any public authority to bring
the law to bear successfully upon them.
"So long as we remain a united par
liament we will have no such difficul
ties to affect us here."
If any component parts of the gov
ernment majority desire to kick out the
ministry, they will have an opportunity
to do so tomorrow when a vote will be
taken on the Unionist tariff reform
amendment to the address in reply to
the speech from the throne, which is
now being debated in the house of com-
The O'Brienltes and the Healeyites
are expected to vote for the amend
ment, but the Redinondites, though
their convictions, judging from their
refusal to support the government s
free trade resolution in the last parlia
ment are in favor of tariff reform,
probably will abstain from voting, in
which case the government majority is
expected to be approximately thirty.
