Shibukawa, city editor of the To kin Morning Sun of Toklo and author of several Japanese novels, said here tonight, that the Japanese were not altogether without blame in the re cent labor and school troubles in Cal ifornia. The solution of the problem, he declared, lies in raising the stand of immigration. Many Japanese in ITUs country, lie said, are of the lower class, and do not represent Japanese sentiment, lie says that the conservative people of Japan have never felt that there would be any break in their amicable relations with the United States, and regarded all talk of war as absurd. \K\V YORK.

ARMED MEN WATCH TOWN FOR FIRE RUGS APPEARANCE I’REt'ACTION RELIEVED II S I II I Ell IlY ATTENDANTS AT QtIKT MEETING . ESTER DAY AITEUNOON — RICKARD RESIDENCE EIRE BE: LI EYED UNDOUBTED IA OK INCENDIARY ORIGIN—IN VESTIGATING .HKY NOT YET THROUGH WITH WITNESSES In different parte of Ely throughoul the night several armed men nels* on putrid duty without oltieiul authority. They were business men and representatives of business houses who volunteered their services at a quiet meeting In’ld during the afternoon at whirl) the three mysterious tires of the last ten days were discussed, with result of conclusion that it looki*d very much as if an incendiary had Itren at work in tin* city. In ronsequeme of this conclusion it was determined to give the ofti rials p<>*sild> important aid through keeping an inde|>endent wateli. I Iiom* engaged kept a la tut flit* town during the night and were little in evidence to the casual passerby, lint they scrutinized all who went their way closely and shadowed suspieiiats appearing characters from the des ignated districts of one to the other. It is understood that this watch will he kept up for some time to come and if there is a fire hug abroad in the town he will find his wav a much beset aud hazardous one. Opinion differs widely as to the causes of the recent tires, but those who have interested themselves in the watch movement believe that the precau tions they are taking at considerable personal sacrifice are worth the while. As a result of many ugly rumors which were afloat iu reference to the fire which occurred in the home of M. F. Uiekard early yesterday morning, an investigating jury com posed of \V. U. Graham, John H Wat (son and W. T. Hinford was iu tile afternoon empanelled by Justice Cartwright. The jury visited the house yester day afternoon and examined the in terior carefully. Later, at the city hail, several witnesses were exam ined. Findings of the jury may lie sum med uii its follows: Tlie parlor and dining room were the only rooms damaged by the flames. From all appearances the tire started in n davenport near the folding doors, as the most damage was done in this section of the room. The testimony of witnesses indicated that, some par ty or parties entered the house after midnight, while Mr. and Mrs. Kick - ard were at the Boosters’ dance, and j threw kerosene on the carpets in the parlor, dining room and front lied room and then set fire to the daven port, expecting tile flames to spread rapidly and destroy the house and contents before the fire department could be of service. According to the testimony of M. F. ltickard and Marshal Hudgens, they left the house between ft: :io and It) o'clock p. in. and went to the ball. They testified there was no sign of file in the rooms when they left and that they were not smoking at that time. They ulso stated that all the doors were locked before go ing out and both remembered dis tinctly of tile back door being locked by Rickard. When the firemen reached the house and found it irn I possible to enter the front door on account of smoke, two of the mem bers went lo the back door, which , they found unlocked. They stepped In, hut were unable to proceed as the smoke was 100 dense. Tile back door entered by the firemen is the one which both Hudgens and Rick ard remember the locking of. The story advanced Is that som< one familiar with the premises push ed the key out of the door and used a skeleton key to uuloek It. The smell of kerosene was not detected until after the firemen left the building. Discovery was made by persons who were left in the house to watch it. Upon investigation they found spots on the carpets in two of the rooms, these smelling sfronglv of kerosene. The jury was unable to render a verdict last evening, as one of the principal witnesses could not be lo cated. Rumor had it last evening that there had been considerable tam pering with the hose during the fire, but this could not be confirmed I’OKUK IlKSlt;NATION o| MINI'» I ItV AND MAN ItltlNt.
