United States Needs to Adopt
New Policy to Maintain
Supremacy in Trade
John Barrett, Government Representa-
tive, Declares Attitude Must Be
Changed to Win Trade and Moral
Supremacy Ovei Latin America-
Importance to United States
i.. Madison. Wis., Dec. 28.—The lm
tortance of the Latin-American re
publics to tlte United States from the
standpoints of trade, commerce, per
sonal intercom's'!, history and economic
etudy, was d$:ussed at today's ses
i- islon of the American Political Science
association. Addresses were made by
John Barrett, director of the interna
ttonal bureau of American republics,
Prof. L. S. Rowe.'of the University of
Pennsylvania, and Dr. Hiram Bingham
qlt Yale.
Barrett in his paper said a critical
situation is impending in the relations
of the United States with Latin
America—not critical in the sense that
any serious diplomatic difference is
about, to develop, but critical rather
in the sense that if the United States
does not give more heed to progress
and importance of Latin-America, it
will soon be so distanced by Europe
a in the race for the control of .com
mence and for the exercise of moral
Influence that it will never attain the
.position of leadership which it is said
to hold among its sister republics.
No New Treaty, But Terms Made by
Canada Will Apply to States.
Washington, Dec. 28.—Viscount Aoki,
the Japanese ambassador, 'has arrang
ed to leave Washington Monday. He
will sail for Japan, from Ss Francisco
January. 7, Qn the steamer Manchuria.
The Ostensible purpose of the ambas
sador's trip is 'i make a personal re
port to his holne government on the
situation in the United States, with
especial reference to the immigration
tin til the ambassador reports. It is
not likely that his successor will be
named officially. Before he can get
to Japan, hownver, a new agreement
between the two' countries will be put
into effect toy which it is proposed to
.limit the number of Japanese coming
Into the United States. No new treaty
it to be negotiated, but protocols have
already been exchanged between this
country and Japan, as a result of
which Japan promises to take the
immigration question into its own
hinds, limiting the number of those
given, direct passports to the United
States to certain classes of students,
professional men and expert laborers.
The ordinary ^-coolie*, classes will not
foe permitted to leave Japan for the
United States, according to the terms
ot the agreement, which will be prac
tically Identical both for Canada and
for the United Statesfl On paper, at
least, the vexatious immigration ques
tion in the United' States has been
settled so far as. Japan is concerned.
However, so long as any consider
able number of Japanese come to our
Pacific slope, there will be a constantly
increasing prospect of outrages by the
hoodlum element, which -local officials
will be unwilling or unable to punish.
Recently the Japanese government
has given positive assurances to the
representatives both of Canada and the
United States that it will itself put
an end to all Indiscriminate emigra
tion to this side of the Pacific. After
that all depends on the good faith of
the Japanese government. If the as
surances :are fully carried out in the
letter as well as in spirit, there will
•be a practical end to the immigration
question' and to the possibility of war
on account of it.
..Determined That Future Restriction of
Emigration Shall Satisfy America.
Toklo, Dec. 28.—A discussion of
the Japanese government's program
and method ot limitation pf emigration,
has commence! between the foreign
Office and American Ambassador
'O'Brien. It understood that the
discussion is eminently satisfactory,
and that memorandum on the subject
1n the shape of a reply, will soon be
forthcoming, lit is quite evident now
-that the Japanese government rec'og

difficult situation, and is determined

Toepperwein Establishes Claim to
World's Champion Rifle Shot.
San Antonio, Tex., Dec. 28.—Ad
Toepperwein Qf this city established
his claim to the world's champion
ship In rifle shooting by a most re
markable feat of marksmanship In a
ten day contest that closed in this city
Sunday. He Ired at 72,500 targets,
missing only nine of. them. This
breaks the world's record both for
accuracy and endurance. Toepperwein
used a 22 caliper automatic rifle and
shot at two-and-a-fourth inch blocks
^hat were thrown into the air at a
"distance of twenty feet from where
fei stood. Hid longest run without a
««%»v »•. tr
miss was 14,540, and he .made several
runs over 13.000 without a miss, lie
used two rilles alternately in order to
keep them cool, tiring »00 shots with
each consecutively. It was his inten
tion to shoot 5.000 targets a day for
ten days, but he developed such speed
as to average over 7,000. He stood
up remarkaoly under the ten days'
strain, and finished the last day with
only one miss in (,500 shots. A large
prowd witnessed the contest and ap
plauded the whirlwind finish to the
echo. Rifle shooting has long been a
cherished Texas tradition and this
world's record made by a £5an Anton
ian is hailed with satisfaction thru
out the state.
Situation in Eastern Turkey Causes
Increase in Immigration.
Boston, Dec. 28.—Additional advices
from eastern Turkey and Armenia, re

of Commissioners for foreign missions,
indicate the famine already reported Is
more severe than was first anticipated,
and the .tide of emigration to this
country was never so strong as at
Now Unprofitable to Import Gold From
.Old World—Prices of Stock Still
Drift Downward.
New York, Dec. 28.—Prices of stocks
have drifted/ downwards until this
week, in a very du.ll market. Money
supplies were scanty owing immed
iately to preparations of banks for
yearly settlements and for some large
special requirements falling due Jan.
1. The effect was depressing on
Eesides, there was some anxiety over
the working out of the commercial sit
uation when heavy maturities of ob
ligation for the past purchases come
in, as they shall do after the first of
the year. The decline in industrial
activity ha? brought into prominence
the discussion of dividend prospects
as a leading factor on the immediate
movements of industrial stocks.
The fact that a money crisis no
longer exists in New York was shown
yesterday, says the Times, when the
premium on currency dropped from 1
per cent to of 1 per cent. At the
same time It was announcel that there
had been a decided drop in cable
transfers. The decline in the prem
ium on money was due to lessened
demand for it, and has made the im
portation of gold unprofitable.
Mrs. Eddy's "Charity" Gift Aimed to
Propagate Christian Science.
Boston, Dec. 28.—Details of the plans
of Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, head of
the Christian Science church, in rela
tion to the $1,000,000 charitable insti
tution which she is to found, were an
nounced yesterday. The institution
will be known as "Mary Baker G. Ed

The plan and scope of this fund will
be to furnish educational opportuni
ties by which indigent persons can be
taught gratuitously the "science of
Christ healing as practiced by Jesus
and as made known thru the writings
of Mrs. Eddy." It will be open to all
"who are genuinely interested in
Christian Science for its truth's sake
and who shall .present to the board of
directors of the fund satisfactory

Beneficiaries of this fund and the
families of those who have families

of the fund, and the number of stu
dents and their families to be support
ed will depend, upon the amount of
this income.

Denver, Col., Dec. 28.—A reconcila

"Buffalo Bill" and Mrs. Cody prob

few days. J. L. Sabin, a friend of
Buffalo Bill, who is stopping here, is
authority for the statement that the

where his divorced wife lives, this
week, and that he will remain there
for several days. He believes that

Government Claims It Was Defrauded
defrauded in the last ten years are to ""r^
be begun by the United States Depart
ment of Jifstice as soon as the compu
tation of the total amount of the gov-
ernment claim is completed by the
treasury officials now engaged in the
work. From estimates now made by
those close in touch with the secret
work of the customs officials it is de
clared the total to be claimed will
amount to more than $3,000,000. This
sum represents the difference between
and the amount that should have been I ®ecretary

San Antonio, Texas, Dec. 28.—Wil
liam Jennings Bryan, following the
fashion set by Grover Cleveland, is
coming to Texas during the holidays
to hunt ducks. As Roosevelt has mads

can ensign, so Bryan is going to make
the Duck Pas^pnt the democratic ori
flamme. Meanwhile all the Texas cit
ies are vying with each other the hon
or of entertaining the three-fold can
didate, who if he talks everywhere ho
is invited, will find his lung power
put to a severe test. He has mean
while shown little inclination to ac
cept the various invitations, having
doubtless been reliably informed that
democratic votes are as thick in Tex
as as ducks, and they are as numerous
as flies in dog days. He will seek to
break the Cleveland record for duck
killing, and qualify to run also a
third time for the presidency.

House, returned to Charlottesville, to
day, and went at once to the telegraph

Steel Corporation Distributes Large
Sum as Christmas Presents.
New York, Dec. 28.—It became
known that the United States steel
corporation distributed $3,000,000 to
its superintendents, managers and
heads of departments as Christmas
presents for the work done during the
year. It has been the practice of the
corporation, to reward those whose
work lias been of a deserving charac
ter and the policy was followed again
this year.
In banking houses gifts to em
ployes and heads of departments are
made as a rule on New Year's eve.
when balances have been struck. This
year the institutions which have been
accustomed to distribute gratuities
have made arrangements somewhat in
advance. It was learned today that
the Central Trust company's employes
would receive 50 per cent of their sal
aries as a holiday gift. This is the
same amount that was paid last year.
At: the National City bank the em
ployes have already received a sub
stantial bonus for the hard work done
(luring the flurry. The first National
will make its customary gratuity t-J
its employes, and, while no an
nouncement has been made by J. P.
Morgan & Co. it is said that the dis
tribution made last year, amounting
to 10 and 15 per cent, according to the
length of time employed, will again be
made this year.
New Method for Treatment of Severe
Cases Proving Highly Successful at
the Roosevelt Hospital, New York
Some Unusual Recoveries.
New York, Dec. 28.—The physicians
at the Roosevelt hospital are enthu
siastic over the new methods whiclv
are being tried there for the treatment
of severe burns. It is said that it has
been unexpectedly successful during
the short time it has been on trial, and
a number of lives have been saved
that would have probably been lost if
treated by any of the old methods.
The treatment consists of baking the

Progressive Opposition Plans to
Have Big Field Against
Garst For Governor
Might Thus Defeat Progressives and at
Same Time Belittle the Primary Law
—Railway Attitude Towards Carroll
a Matter of Some Conjecture—Hau-
gen Not a Probability.
Special to Times-Republican.
Des Moines. Dec. 28.—The present
prospect is that the gubernatorial light
of next year will be Garst against the
field. Efforts are being made lo have
such a large field as to force the fight
into the state convention. Two things
would be accomplished, in this way,
as the plotters figure it: defeat of what
they call the progressive machine and
discredit for the primary system.
Of course it is settled that they will
enter Carroll in the race but they are
looking for other candidates as well.

Despite assurances to the contrary
it is certain that the political commit
tee which last year spent $200,000 of
railroad money in an effort to defeat
and disrupt the republican party in
Iowa is now actively engaged in plan
ning to gain control of the state by
methods just a bit different from those
of last year.
There is a good deal of conjecture,
as to what will be the relations be
tween this organization of last year
and the campaign for Carroll for gov
ernor. Some of Carroll's friends are
certain that he will be given the sup
port of this element at the finish,
while others profess to believe that
he is not satisfactory. It is probable
that if he develops sufficient strength
in his own personality he will be cen
tered upon as the most available man
to defeat Garst. Carroll has not had
very much personal strength in the
various campaigns. For instance last
year at a critical time In the cam
paign, Caroll was asked if he would
not deliver to Garst just one vote from
his home county. Both had been in
the senate and were warm friends.
Carroll was not able to deliver to his
old friend even one vote.
The significance of the efforts to get
out Haugen and Herriott and Court
right and others cannot be overlooked.
Such movements do not come spontan
eously. Back of them there is an
organization. Men are not likely to
be writing letters urging candidacies
unless these letters arc suggested.
Those republicans who fancy that they
are "just republicans" and who have
not had the courage to represent any
thing in recent years, are not suffi
ciently organized so that they could
start a non-factional movement off
hand. These letters are inspired by
persons who were closely identified
with the corporation committee of last
It is: regarded as very doubtful if
Haugen will get into the race for
governor. It is well known that he has
an ambition to be United States sen

told that if he can "break up the pro
gressive machine" he will be made sen
ator succeed Dolliver. But his
friends in the district say that a
congressman is in just as good a po

as a governor, and Haugen can stay

Statement Made Regarding Mrs. Ed
dy's. Million Dollar Fund.
Boston, Dec. 28.—The following
statement regarding the charitable
purposes a:' the fund of $4,000,000 re
cently given by Mrs. Mary Baker O.
Eddy, founder of the Christian Science
church, was issued today by Alfred
Farlow, of the publication committee:
"There seems to be an impression that
contributions to the fund are desired.
This is a mistake. Since the announce
ment of Mrs. Eddy's enterprise she
has been in receipt of many letters of
appreciation from all parts of the
world, commending her efforts. Many
of these letters have been accompan
ied by checks, sent as contributions to
aid the fund. It should be well under
stood that Mrs. Eddy has set aside the
entire, amount necessary for this fund,
namely $4,000,000, and donations from
others have not been asked for, nor
are expected."
