RUSSIANS DRIVE
OUT 6652 JEWS
lewish Relief Society at Kiev Es
timates 700 Families Ex
pelled from There
MANY GO AWAY UNDER GUARD
Report' Is That Forty-Five Are
Forced to Leave City
Each Day
[Auoclated Preat]
KIEV, Russia, July 19.— expul
sion of Jews from Kiev continues at
the rate of forty-five a day. From
July 4 until July 15, 497 were expelled
by what Is known as the second meth
od—that is, they were forced actually
to leave lown. During tho same
period U2l persons were . expelled by
the first method, which in effect Is a
warning for their departure, but per
mits them time for a settlement of
private affairs.
In the majority of cases the latter
method proved ineffectual, as the Jews
In that category are prone to return
to Kiev after temporary absence.
0052 SENT OIT
Slnco May 24, when the Imperial de
cree ordering that all Jews who could
not establish a legal right of residence
elsewhere should be returned within
the pale, the restricted district of the
Polish provinces and the Ukraine be
came effective, there have been ex
polled from this city, Solemnka and
Dmieffka suburbs 3011 persons by the
socond method and 3G41 by the first
method. However, In making this
total of 6052 allowance must be made
for a large number of duplications in
the count. Many have been expelled
only to return and be sent away again,
while the expulsions from Solemnka
and Dmieffka are largely composed of
those who were originally expelled
from this city.
Officers of the Jewish relief commit
tee of Kiev stated today that, rough
ly estimated, 700 families had been
already sent out of the city and 400
families were still subject to such
treatment. The larger figures fur
nished day by day indicate the mo
bility of the expelled, many of whom
persistently return to Kiev to face re
peated expulsion. ■ t
DRASTIC MEASURES '
In the case of the latter the authoffi
ties have adopted drastic measures,
the returning ones frequently being
accompanied from the city by gend
armes and in many cases hanlshment
by "etapped" has been resorted to.
This system provides for the ship
ment of batches of Jews to their final
destfnatlon under relays of guards.
The number of expulsions is con
stantly growing owing to discovery of
illegal makeshifts employed by the
Jews to gain the right of residence.
KR.\rm;i-KNT CERTIFICATES
Since January 1 the authorities have
received 17,272 petitions for right. of
residence,. accompanied by document*
purporting to establish. »uch right.
Among llie number there were dis
covered 2152 fraudulent tradesmen's
certificates. These certificates were
issued by former officials of the Vell
kocech technical school of Poland,
which was closed In 1903 under the
< rder of the governor general of War
iaw. After the - closing the school
■ i uthorltles continued to Issue ante-
Uated certificates to Jews paying the
necessary sums.
The authorities now require holders
of tradesmen's certificates to make a
practical demonstration of their skill.
The greater number are unable to
pasa the test.
A large number of cases against
Jews alleged to be trading Illegally
outsldo the pale are pending in the
courts of Kiev. Where convictions are
secured the goods of the defendant are
confiscated.
NO GROUNDS FOR REPORTS
OF ABUSE OF RUSSIANS
Professional Agitators Keep
Them from Work
WASHINGTON, July 19.—An agent
of the Russian government who has
investigated the bad treatment of Rus
sian peasants on the plantations of

report, the gist of which has been
transmitted to the state department,

wages, difficult work and cruel treat
ment are unreasonable.
He reported that professional agi
tators were responsible for the dis
turbances and that they even prevent
ed the Russians from returning to
work.

no dosiro to return to Russia, but ex
pected the American government to
pay the money anticipated from the
sugar planters, after which they
planned to move to California or Can
ada.

EXPERTS OF TREASURY
STANDARDIZE GOATS
Question of Duty on Imported
Wool Is Fixed
•WASHINGTON, July 19.—The stan
dardization of the goat from a tariff
point of view has been effected by the
treasury department.
On the Cape of Good Hope the orig
inal so-called "cheap skate goat" be
came crossed with merino sheep and
the government tariff experts encoun
tered a new problem, that of "what's
wool" when it appeared on the backs
of the blendod goats. Such wool Is
unsuitable as "real wool," but Is used
for plaster hair and»for collars for
horses and mattresses for mankind.
Now the treasury department has
prepared a new sample formally
stamped "Sample 399-B," for use In
appraising and classifying wools under
the new tariff law.
This sample Is officially classified as
"Cape of Good Hope native skin wool
of a kempy (tangled) character shorn
from so-called Cape goat sheep in a
run down condition," all of which
means that the government will here
after tax all such product as the low
est class wool entering American ports.

cently Infested that place, it is said,
are learning to handle firearms effec
tively and plans are now being made
for the organization of a woman's gun
club in that place. Several telephone
messages were received yesterday at
the Argentine police station from wo
men asking about the city ordinance
pertaining to the dlscarging of fire
arms within the city limits.
"A gun club will be a splendid thing
for the women of this town," said
Mrs. G. W. Wolley of Argentine, last
night. "There are many women whose
husbands work at night or are away
on railroad runs. If the tramps knew
that wo can shoot, then perhaps they
will stop prowling around our homes."

arc aiding the Washington police in
an effort to apprehend a soldier, pre
sumably of the post, who last night

LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 20, 1010.
CANADIAN TRADE
IS TAFT'S THEME
President, at Northeast Corner
of the United States,
Makes Address
NO REFERENCE TO POLITICS
Chief Executive Tells of Visiting
the Four Ends of His
Country
[Associated Press]
EASTPORT, Me., July 19.—President
Taft reached the northeast corner of
the United States today. It was the
first time that a president had visited
this section of the state and for Mr.
Taft it completes travel to the four
quarters of the counry. He said today
that his tours of the United States al
ways impressed him with the homo
geniety of the people, their aims and
ambitions and their Ideas of true
American citizenship being everywhere
the same.
President Taft and members of his
party are stopping tonight aboard the
yacht Mayflower in the harbor. Shu
will sail at 9 o'clock tomorrow for Bar
Harbor, arriving there at 3 o'clock in
the afternoon for a three days' stay.
The president spent an hour and a
half ashore this afternoon and made
v ten minute speech. Mr. Taft did not
touch on politics. He did say, how
ever, that he did not see just why
Maine should have her elections two
months earlier than most of the other
states. The election here is to be held
this year September 12 and the Re
publican leaders are hopeful Mr.
Taft's presence In the state and his
speeches may have a good effect.
CAXAUIAN RELATIONS
In his speech the president ex
pressed hope that closer commercial
relations with Canada may be estab
lished In the riext twelve months.
To reach Eastport today the May
flower had to thread her way through
Canadian waters. She is anchored to
night just on the Maine side of the
line. Eastport is almost entirely sur
rounded by foreign territory. Look-
Ing over the waters of Pasamaquoddy
bay from the quarterdeck of the May
tlower this afternoon the president's
eye caught the British ensign flutter
ing from staffs on many islands.
Eastport formed a decided contrast,
however, for nearly every building
here was dressed In American colors
and bunting. Mr. Taft said in part:
"On behalf of Mrs. Taft and myself,
I beg to extend our grateful acknowl
edgment* for this cordial reception.
When I was a' lawyer there used to be
a legal maxim that the proper way to
understand a written instrument was
to take It up by Its four corners, and
It seems to me the same rule applies
to the country. The proper way to
understand the country Is to go to the
four corners and the places between.
Now, I have been at Seattle, San Piego,
to the southernmonst part of Florida,
and now at Eastport, and I have found
the same people, the same patriotic
spirit, the same progressive civiliza
tion at each of the four points and also
between them. When a man has had
that privilege he may be said to under
stand the American nation. It is true
they talk a little more through their
noses In this part of the country than
they do farther south, but the style of
a woman's bonnet is* just the same here
as It is way down in San Diego.
TALKS TO CANADIAN'S
"I hope In this audience I am ad
dressing there are some Canadians.
You are close enough to them to know
them and greet them as neighbors.
Canada is a great country. We are just
learning how great a country it is.
Speaking for the administration, we are
convinced that a closer commercial il
lation with Canada will be well for
both countries, and If In the next year
we can coma to any agreement by
which our commercial relations shall
become closer, we shall think ourselves
fortunate.
"We have reached a time when
neither ought to be envious of the oth
er, but each ought to be convinced that
the more prosperous the one the more
likely the other is to be prosperous,
and that the growth of trade of one
means the growth of the trade of the
other.
"It is pleasant to see all the contro
versies between Great Britain and the
United States, which have been many
In the past, either now settled or In the
course of arbitration. This is the first
time In the history of the two nations
that this could be said."
BRIDES IN GERMANY

TANK STEAMED ON FIRE
IN COPENHAGEN HARBOR

RESUMES OPERATION OF
CARS; RIOTING FOLLOWS
American Company Has Its Trou
bles in Bogota
BOGOTA. Colombia, July 19.—The
American company resumed the
operation of its street car service to
day, and rioting followed. American
lives do not appear to be in peril.
When -the trouble began Maxwell
Blake, the American consul general,
went to the scene and mingrle 1 in the
mob. He was received respectfully. It
is not believed that demonstrators will
do great damage to American-owned
property. Popular feeling is strongly
against the operation of the line, which
is being strictly boycotted.
The concession granted by the gov
ernment to the Bogota City Railway
company, which was financed by capi
tal from the United States, was un
popular from the first. The concession
was received during the presidency of
General Reyes. On March 7 a mob
attacked the cars of the company and
forced the suspension of traffic. The
American legation was stoned.
An attempt to renew the service on
March 16 resulted in another outbreak
and a strike of the employes, who
feared for their lives. President Gon
zales Valencias made an official ex
pression of regret to the American
minister, Mr. Northcott. The attempt
to open the line today was based on
the hope that ill feeling had subsided.
WELL KNOWN ASSOCIATED

WASHINGTON, July 19.—John A.
Gross, one of the oldest employes in
point of length of service in the Wash
ington bureau of the Associated Press,
died at his home here early today. He

consciousness. Few Washington news
paper men had such a wide acquaint
ance as Mr. Gross among public men
including foreign diplomats.
He was first employed as messen
ger by the New York Associated Press
in 1881 and his service has been con
tinuous. He was born In Washington
In 1863. His wife survives him.

WASHINGTON, July 19.—Whltefield
McKinley, a negro real estate agent
of this city, has been appointed col
lector of customs here, the technical
designation of the office being the port

nition of negroes In important federal

HIBERNIANS START
PORTLAND SESSIONS
Organization Plans to Unite All
the Irish Societies in the
United States
PORTLAND, Ore., July 19.—Neither
Dublin nor Cork is more typically
Irish today than Portland, for at noon
the forty-seventh biennial convention
of the Ancient Order of Hibernians
began its week's lesaions. Until the
credentials committee makes Its re
port the number of delegates will not
be known.
While the convention formally opened
at noon in the Masonic temple, the
program of the initial day began with j
pontifical high mass at the cathedral.
Archbishop Alexander Cristie offici
ated and Rishop Carroll of Montana
delivered the sermon.
Prof. P. E. Sullivan of this city
called the convention to order at noon,
but the actual business of the con
vention will not begin until the cre
dentials committee reports. Three Im
portant subjects are scheduled to come
before the body for action. First is
the proposition to unifj- the four great
Irish,societies—the United Irish league,
the Selnn Poinn, the Gaelic league and
the Ancient Order of Hibernians.
The main obstacle to unification
probably will be in finding a common
ground on which the United Irish
league and the Seinn Feinn can unite.
The second proposition is the In
auguration of a movement which seeks
to induce the Irish to leave the large
cities of the east and take up agricul
tural pursuits.
The third will be a strong effort to
organize a national Hibernian insur
ance society and to include a pro
vision making it compulsory for all
members of the order to take out in
surance.
The circulation of a report yester
day that the Mascaehusctts delegation
had split on the subject of indorsing
Matthew Cummings for re-election as
national president caused a ripple of
excitement. The delegation called a
meeting today and passed a resolution
declaring itself a unit in favor of Mr.
Cummings.
WICKERSHAM AND NAGEL
READY FOR LONG TRIP
Cabinet Members Will Start for
Alaska Saturday
SEATTLE, July 19.—George W.
Wickersham, United States attorney
general, and Charles Nagel, secretary
of the department of commerce and
labor, will start on their Alaskan tour
next Saturday from Vancouver, B. C,
on the government fisheries steamer

retary of the interior, received a tel
egram from Wickersham yesterday no
tifying him that lie and Nagel would
not come to Seattle on their way to
Alaska, but would defer their \'..slt to
this city and be his guests hero after
they completed their Alaskan Journey.
This will enable Secretary Ballinger
to leave Wednesday on his trip of in
spection to Mount Ranier as previously
planned, but which ho would have been
obliged to postpone if the two cabinet
members had decided to come to
Seattle before starting for Alaska.

U.S. CHIEF JUSTICE TO
BE HAGUE MEDIATOR
Death of Fuller Leaves Vacancy
in Tribunal
i
WASHINGTON, July 19.—The next
chief justice of the United States su
preme court probably will be one of
the four members of the permanent
court of arbitration at The Hague.
Chief Justice Fuller's death left a
vacancy in that court, the surviving
members being John W. Griggs of New
Jersey, former United States attorney
general; George Gray of Delaware,
judge of the United States circuit
court, and former United States sena
tor, and Oscar S. Straus of New York,
ambassador to Turkey and former sec
retary of commerce and labor.
The purpose of the court Is to facili
tate arbitration of international dis
putes which it has Been impossible
to settle by diplomacy.
When established eleven years ago,
there were 24 signatory powers and
through the accession of non-signatory
powers the number of countries repre
sented has been largely Increased.
Each signatory power is entitled to a
maximum of four members on the
permanent court.
The understanding among officials
here is that the president will defer
filling this vacancy until he designates
a chief justice of the supreme court
and that he will then name the same
official to The Hague vacancy. ,
