ty the Chinese minister to local Chi

appear against Lo Si Xi and Yip Yen.

lasded in a country where the power of
Wa's hand might be more effectually
Evidence Is Unearthed
Kelly's position regarding the guilt
of the Chinese and of Minister Wu's
complicity in shielding them from de
served punishment is fortified by the
attitude of former Director of Public
Safety Lang, who -was retired a week
ago. He says it is his belief that the
police tad suSci»rt evidence against
Uo Si Xi and Yip Yen to justify their
arrest and tnat he is prepared to stand
by Policeman Kelly to the last degree.
Last Friday Lang s«nt a number of de
tectives through tae Chinese quarter
ar:.l they quickly found eight Chinese
•who .declared that they received letters
from Minister Wu advising them
against aiding the administration of
> American justice.
' It is known that Secretary of State
linox possesses & fell knowledge of th«
ircsrr.rtaaces of the alleged fraud, the:
reason for the arrests aad the influ

law. Tonight it is seriously said that

in guarding his countrymen the de

rn^aister of foreign affairs In China a
diplomatic recuest that TVa be recalled.

iMiss Mar\* Phillips Stumbles
Over Doorstep and Falls Into [
Mother's Arms
.7-, _ \u0084 _ \u25a0 „ \u25a0
"Fve Fallen From a Car," Her
Last Words and Only Clew
to Cause of Death
Blood Stains Mark Steps of In
jured Woman From Tracks
to Dwelling
cipal of the Agassiz primary
scaool in Bartlett street, and a
beloved and valued teacher, died last
evening at St. Loke'3 hospital from the
effects of a basal fracture of the skull
sustained Saturday evening In a mys
terious streetcar accident!
All that is known of the tragic mis
adventure ia that Saturday evening
about. S: 10 Miss Phillips returned to
her home at 1305 Guerrero street, stum
bled blindly across the threshold into
the, arms of her mother and sister, with
whom she lived, cried out feebly, Tve
fallen from a car," and fell unconscious
in the hallway. She never recovered
consciousness, but passed away last
night at St. Lnke's hospital, where she
was removed yesterday morning by
her surgeon. Dr. Alexander Keenao.
Blood Trail Marks Steps
3liss Phillips was one of the most
earnest and accomplished educators in
the city school department, and by her
ability as a teacher and administrator
was raised to the rank of vice principal
of the big primary school in the Mis
sion. She had been in the school de
partment 20 years and wa3 45 years
of age. She was famous and valued
In the school department for ncr ability
to handle incorrigible boys, to develop
their finer qualities and to make manly
lads of them.
Her end came in a manner peculiarly
sad,""for the woman received her fatal
iajnries . while "return tag £o- her home
from, a call upon, friends ia: Baker
street for the purpose of giving Easter
gifts. „-"< '•'.
Xo carman or passenger appeared
yesterday to report on the accident
which cost Miss Phillips her life. All
that remains to substantiate the feebly
uttered cry of the Injured woman Is a
thin and brokea "trail of blood that
led from the corner of Guerrero and
Twenty-fifth streets, where the woman
alighted from the car, to the door of
her late home.
Car Stopped on Street Corner
If the car crew saw Miss Phillips
fall from, the car, no attention was
paid to the prone womaa. She was
left to pick her way from the
tracks, through the .little yard and to
the door of her home alone.
The mother and sister, waiting for
Miss Phillipe* return, heard an electric
car stop at the corner about 8:30
o'clock. There were na footsteps in
the street after the car had passed,
and the two women ia the house tacitly
agreed that the absent one had not
been on that car. Ten minutes later
they heard a slow tread on the porch
and the moaning of some one in pain.
The two women hurried to- the front
door and opened it. There, swaying- in
the doorway, stood Miss Phillips. Her
dress was dust stained; she was bleed
ing from a wound in the head. "Tve
fallen from a car," she exclaimed, and
then reeled and fell.
Second Tragedy Within Year
When Doctor Keenan arrived at the
house he found that the woman was
suffering from a basal fracture of the
skull and a hemorrhage of the brain.
He treated her at her home during the
night, but could not check the flow
of blood that oozed from her ears.
Early yesterday morning she was re
moved to St. Luke's hospital, where
an operation was performed. But that
measure could not save the
life. . She lingered during the day and
died without regaining the conscious
ness she lost when she fell at the door
of her home. "* :^ r ' / - .
Death In the most tragic form has
twice within a year waited* upon the
Phillips family. A year ago a brother
of the dead teacher was "drowned.

HI Mated Pair Pass Easter Sun*
day in Company With
[Special Dupctch ta The CcK\
SEATTLE. April 11.— Mrs. Gunjiro
Aoki. who tva3 Helen Emery. la plan
ning -to move '; Into - a cottage -at j
Dunlap, a Seattle . suburb", and as
soon as the furniture man delivers hla
goods at the Aoki cottage the ill mated
pair will atari house keeping there.
The two have returned from their
j honeymoon and have been staying at
a lodging house in the orlnetal Quarter.
The couple spent r Easter. Sunday
across Lake Washington at Bellevue
' in company with, two other American-
Japanese couples. Mrs. Aaki did not
want to be interviewed. :
"What is there left that the papers
have not already ,; hadT* she- : asked.
"What more can they say? What is
expected of me? ",
"Of course I am happy. Mr. Aoki is
' good to me; better. I dare say, than
I many white men are to their wives,
I and I am sure that we will get along
all right If the public will let us alone.
Aoki Has New Job
"Mr- Aoki ia quite capable of taMng
good care of me, and with his new
position I think we will both be more
contented, and I am sure that •It wiM
be a long while before either of us has
to ask for help from any one. No one
has shunned me that I caa see. Of
course you know we have been here
but a short time, and I haven't had a
chance to make many acquaintances.
In fact, I ara not seeking- acquaintances
just at present, and all we have been
thinking- about is getting settled in our
new home."
At the place where ilrs. Aoki was
visiting r today the surroundings are
picturesquely oriental. One or two
little bungalows are perched, upon the
banks overlooking the lake, and the
interior ia purely Japanese. A half
dozen Japanese were there, and al
though seemingly paying but little at
tention to them and their chatter,, it
was apparent that Mrs. Aokt was dis
turbed, and from glances made in her
direction it was apparent that, she
was the subject of their conversation.
Attracted Much Attention
Aoki will soon go into business here
as assistant manager of an. oriental
trading, company^ The couple have not
been seen ; on : the streets of late, but
they attracted more attention at Rain
ier beach, while they c were house hunt-
Ing than at any time since their spec
tacular arrival in the city. Housewives
of _ the Seattle suburb talked of the
probability ; of : Aoki and. his bride se
curing: a house' and across back* fences
thfa one subject kept - the inhabitants
with plentyj. to I discuss.
>l\don't • think ; Mr." and Mrs. Aoki
will .- be .'invited to^ many 3ocial func
tions here this; summer," declared "one
woman ';wh"o=*. resents - the invasion of
the . brown" man and his bride.
But Aoki has bought the property.
That is, he; has come as near to buy
ing, as the la-ws of i the state will per
mit. A friend of .";: his in ' Tacoma
has put up .; the money for '_• it,
and hold 3 a deed. Aoki , paid hia
friend, back and • received "some
sort,< of a deed. ; The .. property f consists
of several ; lots '. and . a two-- story house
of ; substantial , construction. There •13
a large barn; and the -property fenced
will make a -fair -size \chicken ranch.'
