TOKYO, FrK 10. — Six persons were
killed and 65 seriously injured during
political riots in Tokyo today. The
situation tonight is serious.
The premier of Japan, Prince Kat
sura, was .stoned by a mob in the
streets. His resignation has been de
manded by the people.
Mobs attacked the offices of the
bureaucratic newspapers and threat
ened the dwellings of the ministers.
They burned and wrecked police sta
tions, tramcars and private buildings.
Detachments of troops patrol the
streets. Each newspaper office is pro
tected by a guard of 50 soldiers, to
whom ball cartridges have been served.
They have their bayonets fixed for in
stant use.
The minister of the imperial house
hold announces that martial law will
be proclaimed if there are any further
attempts at incendiarism.
A mass meeting was held this after
noon in ibanya park, in the center of
the city. The mob started from there
to attack Prince Katsura's dwelling.
Police with drawn swords drove them
The police charged several times,
wounding many of the demonstrators.
The crowds reassembled around the
building of the newspaper Kokumin
Shimbun with the intention of burn
ing it. The staff of the newspaper of
fered strenuous resistance with fire
arms, swords and knives.
One of the rioters was killed ivy a
bullet fired from the building. This
only served to infuriate the mob. which
then looted the oil shops and attacked
the offices of other newspapers.
In the second attack on the Kokumin
Shimbun building bundles of straw
were set on fire and thrown within.
The fighting became desperate. Two
4 re persons were killed and more
in a score wounded.
Harlier in the day great crowds col
'pd outside the diet, where strong
forces of police were drawn up to pro
tect the members.
The disorders began with the throw
ing* at missiles at the police. Several
times throughout the morning serious
collisions ensued. Three persons were
killed and 25 wounded in that neigh
borhood. Many police were injured by
the stone throwing.
Strong pressure i 3 being brought to
bear upon the cabinet for its resigna
tion, and it is expected that the minis
ters will resign before the diet reas
sembles three days hence.
Marquis Saionji. (be former premier,
resigned the presidency of the consti
tutional party out of respect for the
throne, it having been the emperor's
expressed wish that Premier Katsura
be not opposed in his present course.
The constitutional party resolved this
morning, practically unanimously, to
fight the government to a finish.
Many resent Prihcc Katsura's at
tempt to break up the opposition to his
ministry l«y use of an imperial rescript
addressed to Marquis Saionji, hence the
popular demand for his resignation.
Marquis Saionji was sumomed to the
p; lace by the emperor.
The crisis is the result of the firm
attitude in the diet of the constitution
alists and liberals, who refused to fol
low the example of Saionji in with
drawal of the recent vote of lack of
confidence in the government.
The cabinet's only step to meet this
opposition was an immediate dissolu
tion of the diet, but the minister of
marine. Admiral Baron Minoru Salto,
refused to sign the recommendation for
this a< tion and the resignation of the
cabinet became imperative.
Troops of the Tokyo garrison were
called out and soldiers were put on
guard around the residences of Pre
mier Katsura and the other members
of the cabinet.

for the exposition city. Mr. Carroll re
plied that the greatest thing the

How to Hare the Beat Cough
Syrup and Save »2, by
Making It at Home.
Cough medicines, as a rule, contain a
large quantity of plain syrup. If you
take one pint of granulated sugar, add
*_ pint of warm water and stir about
2 minutes, you have as good syrup aa
money could buy.
If you will then put ounces of
Pinex (50 cents' worth) in a pint bottle,
and fill it up with the Sugar Syrup, you
will have as ranch cough syrup as you
cotild buy ready made for $2.50. It
keeps perfectly.
And you will find it the best cough
syrup you ever used—even in whooping
cough. You can feel it take hold—usu
ally stops the most severe cough in 24
hours. It is Just laxative enough, has a
good tonic effect, and taste is pleasant.
Take a teaspoonful every one, two or
three hours.
It is a splendid remedy, too, for
whooping cough, croup, hoarseness, asth
ma, chest pains, etc.
Fines is the most valuable concentra
ted compound of Norway white pine ex
tract, rich in guaiacoland all the heal

tion will work in this formula.

with Pinex and Sugar Syrup is now

in the United States and Canada. The
