Judge Terrell First i
Man to Shake the
President’s Hand
Washington, D. C., July
Washington, D. C., July 25—Judge
Robert H. Terrell, of the Municipal
Coutt of the District of Columbia, and
the ranking Colored official now in the
Federal service, was the first man to
shake hands with President Wilson,
Tuesday night, on his return to Wash
A citizens’ committee, appointed by
the non-Partisan League, was to meet
the President at tho Union Station.
Judge Terrell was the only Colored rep
resentative chosen, out of the entire
committee. In view of the fact that
Judge Terrell always represents his race
with dignity and distinction, whatever
the occasion, the selection of the non
Partisian League significantly fitting.
After the welcome address had been
delivered by the President of the League
and the response by the President, the
President then began handshaking. The
first to whom he turned was Judge Ter
rell, who is always on his job.
Judge Terrell will be remembered as
the man who President Wilson appoint
ed on the Bench of the Municipal Court
for his fifth term. Although there came
forth all kinds of protests from members
of the Senate and other political fac
tions, against the President’s appoint
ment, President Wilson has more than
once given evidence to the fact that
Judge Terrell has ‘ ‘ made good. ’ ’
Throughout the District of Columbia and
the nation at large, no man can be found
who is as popular with both races, as
Judge Terrell.
Tokio, June 10—(Correspondence of
The Associated Press.)—Demand for
more comfort for those who work for
wages, and that fewer privileges be
granted to the rich, are the funda
mentals of a popular movement which is
gathering form in Japan, and which is
causing considerable uneasiness not only
to the Government, but to representa
tive Japanese in all spheres of activity.
Socialism is attracting the interest of
not only the working people, but of men
holding important places in the domain
of education. This general movement is
partly the reflex of the labor unrest
in foreign countries, and partly the re
sult of a steadily growing revolt at home
against the amassing of wealth by the
- against^.the hord
.TapanesefcTOciaTists recently sent out
manifestos to Socialists in foreign lands
asking for a formal recognition of the
Japanese body which has been organized
under the name “Japanese Socialist
Party.” The Socialist Party of Italy
sent a resporsc conveying their willing
ness to recognize the Japanese Socialists
as their friends and co-workers. Sen
Katayama, the pioneer Socialist of
Japan, is now abroad as the representa
tive of his party at home.
The attempt to promote Socialism, or
a more radical doctrine, is being pushed
now because of the awakening of the
workers to what they regard as the evils
of present economic and industrial con
ditions. The average Japanese work
man is beginning to raise his voice for
better pay and more freedom generally.
The central organization for working
men in Tokio has addressed an open
letter to the Home Minister, the Presi
dent of the Chamber of Commerce, and
others, declaring that in case of war it
is the working people of Japan who are
called upon to defend its shores, and
asking whether it is the national policy
of Japan to allow capitalists to fatten
while the workers are starving.
Dr. Jikel Yokoi of the Imperial T’ni
varsity, in a public statement, says that
democratic ideas long prevalent in the
great cities have recently spread among
the rural population. They have par
; ticularly affected, he said, school teach
: ers, members of the young men’s asso
ciation, and army reservists.
Many Japanese scholars are reported
: to be enthusiastically studying Social
ism. Laborers are openly interested, and
are often heard discussing the subject
n street cars.

Flower Vender Found
Dead in Alley
Head Crushed by Unknown
Charlie Duncan, a flower vender, was
fpund in an alley in the rear of 2947
with his skull crushed. The body was
found by James Alexander, 3575 Rhodes
avenue. Dunean’s skull, evidently, had
been crushed by a heavy iron bar, ns the
.bar was found within a few feet of
his body.
Duiuy.figviwH .s^eU known around Adi.'-.
* *-die had peddled ifowers for the
last ten years. Duncan had saved liis
money, as was evidenced by the roll he
always carried, and the large bank ac
count that he possessed.
The Cottage Grove Avenue police on
examining Duncan ’a body, found $78 in
money and a check for $15. But the
familiar diamond that Duncan always
wore was missing. This leads to the
belief that Duncan met foul play on ac
count of his diamond pin that he always
wore. His body was removed to Jack
son’s Undertaking rooms at 3315 Slate
What a Patient Says About G. Edward
Taylor, Foot Specialist at 7230
Wentworth Ave.
Perhaps it is not all on account of the
ml blood ill his veins that he is so en
thused over his profession.
His method of making arch supports
and treating the feet is a certain one,
for it does not deal with contingencies.
Tt has revolutionized the whole scheme
of support fitting for the feet, elevating
it to the- plane where it rightfully bc
longs. Perfect in operation' so com
fortable and corrective in effects and
proving ho satisfactory to those who are
enjoying its efficiency daily, that it
stands pre-eminently above every other
method used or devised.
ihe origin of the “shimmy” dates
back to ancient times. Statistics show
that the “shimmy” was danced by the
Apnehe Indians, as a sacred dance.
h or this writing of plays is a great
matter, forming as it does the minds
and affections of men in such sort that
whatsoever they see done in show on
the stage, they w'ill presently be doing
in earnest in the world, which is but
a larger stage. ”—Shaw’s Dark Lady of

Rich Man Leaves Whole Estate to Servant
New York, July 19—The will of Alex-hix mother, Mra. Elona de Angclis Wat
ander Waters, 50, filed for probate in the
Surrogate’s Court, Brooklyn, yesterday,
consists of only seven words and leaves
an estate declared to be “more than
$10,000” to Miss Zulma Powell, a col
ored woman, aged 35, who was a house
keeper in the decedent's home for a
number of years.
“All 1 have belongs to Zulma,” reads
the will.
Alexander William Waters died sud
denly in his office, 61 Broadway, Man
hattan, July 3 last. It was 9 o’clock
in the morning. He was sitting at his
desk and had spoken of feeling ill. A
premonition of impending death seized
| him. He took a large sheet of paper,
on the back of which was printed a
“daily market letter,” and wrote the
| seven words of his will on it in a large,
sprawling hand.
He Signs Will Twice
Then he signed it “A. W. Waters”
twice, and, acording to Edward .T. Reilly,
Miss Powell’8 lawyer, called two men
in the office to witness it. They were
T. W. Meggblade and Harry L. Tor
rance. In a few minutes Waters was
dead, the paper on the desk before him.
A policeman took possession of it.
Waters lived at 228 Lincoln place,
Brooklyn, near Eighth avenue, in one of
the best sections of Brooklyn. A negro
woman answered the bell at the three
story brownstone dwelling there yes
“Zulma Powell is out of town,” she
said, “and won’t return until next
According to Mr. Reilly, Miss Powell
has acted as Waters’ housekeeper and
nurse—his health was not always the
best—since she was lf» years of age.
When Waters moved to 228 Lincoln
place from the home he had in Prospect
place, she went with him.
Waters owned the house, according to

The situation has been complicated
by the fact that letters of administra
tion were issued for the estate by Sur
rogate Wingate to the mother July 9.
Mrs. Waters declared that no will had
been found and added, that beside her
self the following and no other were
interested in the proceeding: David
L. Waters, brother of the decedent;
Malcolm C. Waters, brother, both of
285 Empire Boulevard; Charles T.
Waters, brother, Lynbrook, L. I.; and
Lena A. Thurston, sister, of Orange,
New Jersey.
The mother said last night that the
matter was in the hands of her lawyer,
William C. Daly. To her it seemed, she
said, as if her son was under the in
fluence of his housekeeper and could not
shake it off. It is her contention and
the contention of her lawyer that the
will is invalid.
Signed Too Lal«, Is Charge
The statement is made that tlie two
men, whose names are attached to it,
first saw the frail document after Wat
ers had died and simply signed their
names to it, one adding that the paper
had been found on Waters desk. Mrs.
Waters had not been served with notice
of the probate of the will.
Waters was a bachelor. He was the
general agent here of several large
fruit growing associations on the Pa
cific coast and was born in Montreal.
He was high in Masonic circles, was an
Elk and a member of the American
Bulldog Association. His mother said
last night that she did not know just
what the extent of her son’s estate was.
In the petition for letters of adminis
tration it was referred to as personal
property not exceeding $500, real estate
of a value unknown.
Waters was buried from the Aurora
Grata Cathedral, Bedford avenue and
Madison street, Brooklyn, July 6. In
terment was in Maple Grove Cemetery.
