There was a temporary feeling of gratitude in the hearts of a Ills Four train crew, in the charge of Conductor Hugh C. Dor-H'-y, of 1103 Spann avenue, on the Cin cinnati division of the road, when the train was ihifwd at the Twines crek bridge by the wild waving of a youth. The bit? engine and heavy freight train came to a stop near the bridge, and before the eyes of the crew were four heavy ties piled on the rails on the 1'iidge. The youth, who gave his name as Chris Pans, IS years old. of 523 North Iowa street, Chicago, came In lor his share of praise. He Told a Lurid Lie. The boy said he was walking along the track when he saw two roughly attired and low browed men pilling the ties on the rail. When they taw him, Daus paid, the men ran behind a section tollhouse near the bridge. Idealizing the danger of a serious wreck, Da use said, he caught hold of th tics to drag them from the track, when the alleged train wreckers sprang from their bidding place and pointed revolvers at him. They threatened to blow his head off and Daus said he turned and ran south along the tracks, until the bandits could see him no longer and then flagged the train. dot ft Lot of Undeserved Praise. The trainmen were loud in their praise of the boy's alleged heroism, and after dividing the contents of their lunch buckets with him they took him on the train to Sun man, in Ripley county. Here the authorities were no tified that a desperate attempt had been made to wreck the train, and Daus promised to give the authorities a!! possible assistance. He was to be rewarded for his alleged bravery. Detectives Unearth the Fraud. The sheriffs of both Ripley and Dear born counties were notified, and a .search for the train wreckers was be gan. News of the matter was tele-, graphed to Indianapolis, and Lawrence P. Crady, chief of the Rig Four detec tives, went to the place and soon had a confession from the young degenerate that he had piled the ties on the track himself.

Japanese immi gration was bitterly denounced In a speech by Representative Julius Kahn, of San Francisco. Kahn was one of the speakers at a dinner of the New York Credit Men's association, held at the Hotel St. Denis. His subject was "The Japanese Question as Affecting San Francisco." The people of the Pa cific coast, he said, were satisfied that the Japanese wou-ld always re main loyal to the mikado, and that the oath of naturalization would be to them a hollow mockery. Cnllfornlans did not want that kind of citizenship, and did not intend to have it if they could prevent It. He said In part: Refers to the Chinese Invasion. "There is no state In the Union that Is more loyal and more 'patriotic than is California, but let me say at the out set that Oriental and Occidental civil ization will not mix. As early as 18.12 we learned to know the Chinese coolie. Py 1S70 there were fully 80,000 Chi nese coolies in California, and the yel low hordes kept pouring through the Golden Gate in increasing numbers, Ry 1878 California, from one end to the other, was ablaze with remon strance, and Just about that time, by the overwhelming1 vote of nearly K'5, 000 to about 000 as I remember the figures, the voters of California regis tered their opposition to the further in flux of the Chinese coolie. Now an Invasion of Japs. "And now, again Ave are threatened with an Oriental invasion. Since the great disaster which overwhelmed the city of San Francisco last April Jap anese laborers to the number of prac tically a thousand a month have been swarming through the Golden Gate, and I think that I am not stating the facts too strongly when I say that the people of California regard these Jap anese coolies w ith greater abhorrence are. even with greater fear than they did the coolies from China. Worse Than the Chinese. "We feel that the former hare all the vices of the Chinese with none of tfcc-Ir virtues. In business they are abso lutely devoid of the stern sense of hon or of the Chinaman. The latter lives up to the letter of his obligation, while the Japanese never hesitates to break that obligation if it suits his purpose to do so. Not Unskilled Laborers. "The Japanese coolie who come? to California, for the most part, is not an unskilled latvorer. He is a shoemak er, tailor, gardener, cook, waiter, or one or other of a dozen classes of workmen, as the case may be. He can and does live just as cheaply as the Chinaman." R. G.
