LEADERS OF AMERICA’S
ENDURING FRIENDSHIP
Warm Greeting Extended to Each Member of Important
Peace Commission —Japanese People
Pledge Loyalty
Minneapolis, Minn., Sept. 20.—Pres
i lent Taft yesterday met the fifty
i. >■ ibers of the Japanese commercial
mission to the United States. He bade
t’-'m a hearty welcome, assured them
( he lasting freindship of the Amer
i( :.a people, praised their qualities of
i 'd us try and patriotism and in con
c ir.lon drank a toast to the emperor
c- Japan as “the warm and sincere
f ad of America.”
l'ii 3 meeting was at a luncheon at
f r Lafayette club on the shores of
] . :.j Minnesota, tendered by the
( . aercial club of Minneapolis.
sident Taft scouted the idea
1a... here had ever been the slightest
r of trouble between Japan and
ca. He paid his compliments to
Him .military valor of Japan when the
( >i i ry was “fighting in defense of
h . . .ghts and the maintenance of her
i „ :.ge on the field of battle.”
.L;l,” he declared, “Japan today is
g for victories of peace and we
n" !i pe she will succeed. We are not
to yield ourselves in that con
-1— 4 if we can help it.”

prominent banker of Tokio and
ch.i i .nan of the visiting commission.
L,. . ig in his native tongue he re
ferred to President Taft as one of the
f .cxr.cst men of the age and a warm
r ■ *. .. ue friend of Japan.
i it. baron proposed the health of
t.._ _ rsident and led his fellow coun

o. the commission. His hearty words
of gr * eting, his quick recollection of
having met many of the visitors dnr
irr m* several visits to Japan and of
little incidents in which they had had
a part, seemed completely to captivate
them and each man appeared reluct
ant t J release the president’s hands
or curtail the informal exchange of
compliments.
Mr. Taft also received the ladies of
the party, declaring to Baroness Bhi
busawa that America wanted to see
mcr:- or the ladies of Japan and to
encourage their coming to this conn
try with the men.
“It is not fair,” said the president,
“that Japan should keep back the
most charming of her creatures.”
Baron Kan da. a graduate of Am-'
hs-rst, greeted the president as s fel
low member of the Psf Upslloh frater
nity.
“Well, well,” said ths. president
“we will shake hands again, bnt wall

“ V have a profuond admiration
for :hr physicians of Japan. They
tau - as the way to stamp out the
pla.u . In Manila they taught us to
labe rats and by driving them to
their 'i Ls to wipe out the source of

If good advice appealed to a young
man as eloquently as rheumatism or
dyspepsia does to an old one, what a
blessing It would be!
It keeps the women pretty busy
saying “don’t* to the children, and
remarking to each other, “Now isn't
_ that Just ilka a man?"
“I suppose you have bulls and
bears?”
“Oh yes, sir,” replied the broker.
“And the lambs, too?”
The broker bowed low and passed
on.
Kojiro Matsukata, president of the
Kobe chamber of commerce and a
ship builder, was only one of what the
president remarked as being a "grati
fying sprinkling of the Tale men all
along the line.”
He received most cordial welcome,
the president having met him and his
father, one of the elder statesmen of
Japan, in their native country.
“I bring from my father his hum
ble, but sincere good wishes,” said
Mr. Matuskata, who later, in response
to a question from the president said
he graduated from Tale in 'BB.
“You ought to know Heffelfinger
then?” said Mr. Taft.
“Oh yes, I remember him, he played
such football.”
Greets Classmate.
"Come here ‘Heff,’ ” called the pres
ident, and the big Tale guard, tower
ing above the throng on the club
house porch, came forward warmly to
greet his old classmate.
With Mr. Otana, president of the
Tokohama chamber of commerce,
President Taft exchanged many pleas
ant recollections of former associa
tions in Japan.
“Mrs. Taft remembers Tokohama
especially well,” declared the presi
dent, “and we still value most highly
the silver service presented us by the
chamber of commerce there and
which we oontinue now to use at the
White Ho- a. Whenever Mrs. Taft
serves tea, that silver makes her the
envy of all the matrons that come to
the White House.”
Baron Shibusawa. in his address,
said:
“This is one of the proudest mo
menta of my life. It has just been our
good fortune to be Introduced to
your president and he has been so
kind and so gracious that we all In
dividually feel honored and thank
him from the bottom of our hearts.
“On the eve of our departure on the
present mission, the emperor honored
us in away quite unique in our his
tory. He graciously invited us to a
banquet at one of his palaces, an hon
or never before given to any private
individual, however distinguished, go
ing abroad without any official ca
pacity.
A Memorable Parting.
“On that memorable occasion the
emperor was pleased to express to us,
through the minister of bis house
hold, bis high approval of our visit to
America and gave us to understand
that the success of our mission was a
matter of deep concern to him. Scar
cely less deep was the interest mant
fester in our trip by the people at
large. From ministers of state down
to the very man in the street, the
whole nation united in giving us a
send off as Is given only to the men
going to the front in defense of home
and country. From this you can easily
infer how strong and universal is the
enthusiasm excited In Japan by our
present visit to your country.
“This is only another manifestation
of that peculiarly deep sentiment of
friendship and goodwill which the
people of Japan have always felt and
actually feel toward the people of this
enlightened republic.
“May the strong ties of friendship
that now so happily bind together the
two nations grow still stronger as
years roll on, and may their friend
ship be forever basej on mutual re
spect and common regard for justice
and peace and for the good of hu
manlty at large.”
CONFIRMED PROOF.
Resident* of Canon City Cannot Doabt
What has Been Twice Prosed.
In gratitude for complete relief
from aches and pains or bad backs—
from distressing kidney Ills—thous
ands have publicly recommended
Doan’s Kidney Pills. Residents of
Canon City, who so testified years ago,
now say tbelr cures were permanent
This testimony doubly proves the
worth of Doan's Kidney Pills to Canon
City kidney sufferers.
Mrs. W. H. Dawson, 111 Macon are.,
Canon City, Colo., says: "In 1900 I
gave a public statement telling of the
good results that had followed the use
of Doan's Kidney Pills in my case.
My trouble was from a dull, hoary
acbe In the small of my back and be
tween my shoulder blades To usa my
hands and arms increased the aching
and If I worked hard, the misery was
almost unbearable. Frequently I was
distressed by headaches and dlssy
spells and I was also annoyed by Ir
regular passages of kidney secretions.
Two boxes of Doan’s Kldner Pills,
procured at Hunter Palmer’s drug
store, disposed of all my trouble. Now
after a lapse of over two years, I glad
ly verify my former testtmoalrl, as I
still hare unlimited confidence In

SHIPS ASSEMBLE FOR HUDSON-FULTION CELELRATION
New York, Sept. 10.—Two foreign
warships are here to attend the Hud
son-Fulton celebration—the Presl
dente Sarlmento from the Argentine
Republic and the Utrecht from the
Netherlands—swung anchor Saturday
night In the North river roadstead and
the ships of the Atlantic fleet are
steaming up the coast under easy
headway bound for New York.
Vessels from other navies are ex
pected within the next forty-eight
hours.
Secretary William J. Rammer of
the aemauts committee said yester
day that Wilbur Wright has made a
verbal agreement which guarantees
that during the celebration he will
give a more ‘positive demonstration of
what aviators now dare than anything
yet attempted.”'
The vanguard of visitors reached
New York yesterday. Fully 1,000.000
are expected this week.
Building Up the Town
The First in a Series ol Talks by the Editor of the Record
(The next will appear in the Daily Record Wednesday Night)
I have Intended [or a long time —
more than a year—to write a aeries ot
suggestions about Building Up The
Town, but writing la no eaay Job at
best, and tt is real work whan one
gets down to a serious subject like
this, so it has been put off .rom week
to week—until now it seems to be a
very opportune time for such a dis
cussion.
I do not pose as knowing It all,
but I have gathered a few Ideas by cb
servation, both at home and away,
that I know are good and I propose to
bring these out as plainly as possible.
I shall write personally. For some rea
son or other that seems more natural
and direct than the editorial style.
In these discussions. I have but one
possible motive In view—to help local
conditions —to get our people to see
the Importance of doing something,
collectively, actively, to help the town
and te de it.
I hope these suggestions will he
read and discussed by all who are In
terested In building up Canon City—
and that should include everybody In
this town who has a dollar Invested
here or who makes his living by sal
ary or wage. And I shall be glad to
know what others think of these sug
gestions—not that. In this case, I care
a fig tor commendation, but I want
the ideas of others, especially of oth
ers who are thinking along this line.
Be frank—don't hesitate to tell me I
am wrong—lf I am—and don’t hesi
tate to endorse the proposition If I am
right. That helps, sometimes, yon
know, especially with others, and If
you have any new Ideas tell me—or
write me. I am always looking for
new idess slong this line. Between
us—we who are interested —we may
be able to do the old town some good.
The town certainly needs some
thing—some concerted movement to
start things. For three years she ban
been practically at a standstill. Not
dead, mind you, by any means, but
surely at a standstill. The loss of the
fruit crop discouraged a lot of people
and we have since Just been waiting—
waiting for something to happen—for
some good luck or a good crop to
overtake us.
But we haven't done anything much
to help ourselves.
I have a theory that we could dis
pense with the fruit crop and still
make this a good town. But, of course,
that Isn’t necessary. We will keep the
fruit crop, and we will make It bigger
RIOTING IN STREET CAR
CAUSES SERVICE TO STOP
Omaha. Sept. 20.—The first (how of
violence In the street car strike came
at Council Bluffs yesterday afternoon
when a car on the lnterurban line
was derailed and the windows were
smashed. Conductor Doolittle resist
ed his assailants and was Injured with
a brick. Five strikers were arrested,
charged with riotous conduct.
Fifty-four men were brought to the
city of Chicago, and It is understood
that 400 more are expected to arrive
today.
During the afternoon 2SO strikers
paraded through the principal streets.
Union leaders claimed 200 other man
are out.
A crowd of 2,000, Including many
women, gathered and Jeered the ear
craws. The trolleys were pulled off
and the ropes cut so that the con
ductors were compelled to climb on
top of the cars to replace the trolleys.
One loose trolley pole caught Ike
trolley wire and broke It, allowing
the ends carrying a heavy currant to
drop. Fortunately the crowd saw the
danger and quickly scattered, so that
no one waa touched by the live wire.
The crowd waa dispersed by the po
lios.
After the rioting at Council Bluffs
all ears In that city were taken off
and In Omaha service was discon
tinued at f o’clock.

PRESIDENT WILL
NOT PRESS RUTTION
AT TUNNEL OPENING
Denver, Sept. M.—When President
Taft opens the Gnnnleon tunnel at
Montrose next Thursday, he will not
push an electric button ns has boon
the usual custom but will place n
bell on a floating plate and the weight
will be sufficient to oause the ooataet
and sat In motion the machinery
which will open the headgatas of the
tunnel and release the water.
The principle Is the same as though
he pressed the electric button. It Is
furnished by the Colorado Telephone
company. The bell Is of purs gold,
and on one side is an' Inscription
reading as follows:
“Opening of the Gunnison Tunnel

Taft, president of the Dotted States of
America, Montrose, Colorado, Sept.

Tbe president will be permitted to
take the bell with him.
every year. But it wouldn’t do any
harm to go along Just as If we had no
fruit crop to depend on and see If we
couldn't build up the town along oth
er lines.
The town will not grow unless we
make It grow.
It’s up to our own people.
No city ever became great because
of location, climate, or resources
alone. It has taken push and activity
on the part of the people Interested.
Omaha Is an older city and better lo
cated than Kansas City, but Kansas
City had the enterprise and she has
rorged far ahead of her rival.
Tacoma Is an older city and better
located than Beattie, bat visit both
and yon can tell me In an hour which
had the enterprising men.
Canon City is an older dty aad bet

tions, has a better climate than Colo

any rate. They gave It the start aad
every Colorado Springs maa has ever
since been a booster.
Canon City has more natural ad
vantages for making a Mg little city
than say other town la the state. If
necessary I will argue that at length
some Urns and prove It to you.
All we need Is the push.
We have the men here with ability
and push all right bat they haven’t
been working maeh for the town as a
whole. They certainly haven’t been
doing "team work” aad that’s what
counts la anything, In running a re
vival or la building up a town.
What we need Is a little of the re
vival spirit
If we could get twenty seen—the
twenty men that you and I could
name for such work—to spend aa

for a bigger trttar Canon City, we
could start t boom Inside of a year.
If we eould get two hundred boom
