Boston, May 20. Dennis Collins, a

with President William M. Wood of
the American Woolen Company, and
Frederick E. Ettaux. a Boston dye
manufacturer, for conspiracy to "plant"
dynamite at Lawrence during the tex
tile strike of 1912, testified as a wit

was resumed today.
Collins said that on May 19. 1912, he
met John J. Breen. a Lawrence under
taker, who was convicted of actually
"planting" the explosive in a saloon in
Boston. In the course of their con
versation, Breen asked If he would like
to go to Lawrence that night. "I told
him I would go if I could help him
any," Co'lins said. Breen continued:
"We shall probably meet pome folks
and 3'ou had better carry this bundle
to keep your end up," at the same time
handing the witness flvrt $5 bills.
Breen. the witness said, agreed to give
him more money the following day. j
Collins said that after leaving the i
saloon they-met two men. One of the

FIND A SOLUTION.
It is generally believed here that
Washington will find a solution of the
problem, but the more conservative
elements in Japan are now echoing the
public agitation for equal treatment of
the Japanese. They declare that the
racial issue which it is contended Is in
volved and the steady recurrence of
anti-Japanese bills - should receive
"basic curative treatment."
A prominent official said today:
"The Japanese people fee! that their
national honor is involved. The present
question will be solved peacefully but
what is needed to assure the perma
nence of our traditional friendship is a
change of heart in some Americans
toward the Japanese."

With the answer of the United States
to lis protest it now devolves upon the

JAPAN TO TEST LAW.
As it is understood the state depart
ment 13 looking to the Japanese gov
ernment, or some Japanese citizen to
test the new law by recourse to the
United States courts, it may be sig
nificant of the drawing of another is
sue that the Japanese are believed to
be reluctant to begin Fuch a movement.
In his protest of May 9 to the state
department, the Japanese ambassador
is understood to have made it perfectly
elear that Japan finding it impossible
to deal directly with the st.ite of Cali
fornia, was relying entirely upon the
federal government to insure what h
believes to be fiir treatment for its
snblects. Probably that contention
will be extended to rover the legal tet
of the California land law, though the
ordinar?" procedure in such caes would
be to allow a Japanese subject threat
ened with escheatment of his lands, to
begin action by application for an in
junction. Meanwhile it is expend that several
days will elapse before the Japanese
rejoinder is received, in view of the
fact that ten days were taken for the
preparation and delivery of the Amer
ican reply to the original protest.

Detroit, Mich., May 20. Charging
that organized labor has failed to clear
itself of "the stains which violence
and lawlessness cast upon It, John
Klrby, Jr., of Dayton, Ohio, president
of the National Association of Manu
facturers, ln his annual ..report today
dwelt 'at length on ' present !irtdusTriaT
and legislative tendencies and their
effects upon manufacturers and em
ployers. He referred In detail .to the
attitude of manufacturers towards th3
tariff. He said in part:
'Conspicuous in the momentous
events of recent years that have tran
spired in the field of American in
dustry Is the tragedy of Log Angeles
and the drama of Indianapolis." As
a reward to the principal accomplices
in this conspiracy, they have one after
another, through the power of the in
vincible "inner circle"' of the Ameri
can Federation of Iabor been re
elected to their respective offices.
Point to me one single labor leader or
delegate who has arisen and indig
nantly demanded that such type
leadership be forever barred from the
administration of union affairs.
"During recent years we have wit
nessed the prosecution and convic
tion of many business men under the
Sherman anti-trust law for seeking in
some way to protect their business
against ruthless competition and
dominant methods of the labor trusr.
If they have violated the law we have
no complaint to offer for the penal
ties Which they may be called upon
to pay, but we do protest against the
free and unmolested manner in which
the labor trust defiantly continues to
violate the same law.
"We are justified in our , condemna -tlon
of representatives and senators in
congress, who In the name of political
expediency stoop go low in the soil
of public duty as to vote for such
legislation as the Clayton anti-injunction
and contempt bills passed in the
lower house of the 62nd congress and
which only escaped passage in th

Tallahassee, May 20. Quite a little
newspaper comment has resulted from
the loss of a diary bearing the' in
spection "Return to Richard J. Bolies,
Bisbee building, v Jacksonville, Fla.."
which was found- by a Jacksonville
man, and w hleh , contains numerous
references to BoWes' dealings in the
Jivergta.dtrt, Ch- -Colorado man being ! mt bills
tbe principal holder of and dealer in
lands in the 'Glades.
Among the memoranda taken from
the diary, which I understand Mr.
Molles claims not to have written, is
this reference to Hon. W. H. Ellis, at
torney for the international improve
ment board, who was formerly attor
ney fer Bolles also:
"Reasons for discharge of Ellis:
"1. Ellis conflicts with the trus
"2. I cannot pay $400 a month.
"3. I want a man who does noth
ing but my business.
"4. When I am paying Ellis he
starts a deal he hears they want me
to make and then tells me about it
and then asks $125,000 commission and
the same amount for Gibbons."
MR, ELLIS'S STATEMENT.
Your correspondent asked Mr. Ellis
about the matter this morning, show
ing him a copy of the excerp from
the diary. Mr. Ellis readily made a
statement on the subject, saying that
every transa.ctio n he ever cn
gaged in as attorney for the internal
improvement board, Bolles or anybody
else was open to public inspection,
and. that he never bad anything to hide
from the people of the state.
"I do not know that Mr. Bolles ever
wrote n diary." he said, "but I do
know that he rould not have Justly
written anything that implicated me
in anything that was at all fiuestion-
able. The last item mentioned in thia
excerpt doubtless refers to th" at tempt
of Hon. Cromwell Gibbons of Jack
sonville, to purchase Mr. Bolles's hold
ings in the Everglades, which fell
through. Mr. Gihboms asked me, as
attorney for Mr. Bolles, to ascertain If
Bolles was willing to sell his hold
ings In full. Naturally, Mr. Gibbon
would deserve a large commission for
oonsumating Ihe largest real estnte
deal ever recorded between private
parties In Florida. I a.sked Mr. Bolles
if be would givf me a commission to
ftrd a purchaser for his lands, and h
replied that he would be glad to do
so. This deal was between private
parties, and had Mr. Gibbons and T
arranged for Its consummation, we
most assuredly would have been de
serving of a large commission, and J
don't think any business man could
question the propriety of the act. "Any
real estate man would have charccd
a much larger commission for putting
through, such a deal, which would have
been to the benefit of the state and Mr.
Bolles and the would-be purchasers as
well. I have nothing to hide jn cither
my public or private career."
