President Issues Orders Regarding Execution of Exclusion Laws. Washington, June 19. —Pr«3S ldent Kooeevelt U manifesting a deep inter est til the statements made tt> him last M'/WlhJ by a delegation Of members of the American Asiatic Association con cerning the difficulties which hitherto have \**n «ipmtiiic«d by Chinese mer chants, students, travelers and literary men in gaining admission to thin conn try. The complaints of the Chinese government about the allayed humilia tion to which members of those olaases of Chinese are aubjeoted upon their ar nal in the United Htates, together with the threat* of the commercial guilds of China to retaliate by boycotting American made goods, have aroused the business men of tbia country to protesvt against what they have re garded aa onreaaonahle discrimination in the enforcement of Chinese exclu sion lawa. In a letter to Becretary Metcalf, of the department of commerce and la bor, the president direct* him to aee that the immigration offioera exercise extreme discretion in the enfrcement Of the exclusion law, to the end that the relationa of thla government with China may coontinue to be cordial. It ia pointed out that great difficulty la experienced by the immigration offi cials id executing the law, because of the many bogus oerticfiates which are presented hy Chinese. It ia a well un derstood fact that for a consideration a Chinese coolie may procure in China a certificate that he ia a merchant or a traveler or a member of the other exempt classes. On its face the cer tificate entitles him t«» admission to the United Htates. Ho many frauds have been discovered in the matter of these certificates that the immigration offl ciala examine all of them most care fully. Thus far no feasible plan has been worked out to remedy the trouble of which the Chinese complain. Secre tary Metcalf Is in favor of congres sional legialation on the subject, pro viding for a rigid auperviaion of the issuance of certificates in China, the idea being to hold the officials who is sue them absolutely responsible for the accuracy of the statements contained in the certificate*.

NICHOLAS AGAIN PROMISES AN ELECTIVE ASSEMBLY ' St. Petersburg, June —Emperor Nicholas yesterday received the zemst vo deputation. The reception took place at noon in the Alexander palace at Peter hof. Prince Troubetakoi, pre sident of the zemstvo congress of the Moscow government, in behalf of the Moscow delegation, addressed the em peror in a long apeecb, in which be described the serious internal condi tions which have caused the zematvoa to approach his majesty directly. The emperor was evidently much impressed. iiia majesty replied, expressing deep regret at the great sacrifices conse quent on the war, and above every thing at the disaster to the Kussian navy. He aaid: "I am happy to have heard you. 1 have no doubt you are guided by an ardent aentiment of love for the fath erland in addressing me directly. "I have been grieved in my whole soul, with all my people, at thecalam itiea which the war haa brought upon Kuaaia and at all those which may atill be feared, as well aa our internal disturbances. "Dissipate your doubts. My will is sovereign, and it is my unalterable will that the admission of elected rep resentative* to the works of state shall be regularly accompliahed. "I watch daily and devote myaelf to tbia work. You may announce that to all your frienda in country and town. "I am firmly oonvinced that Ruaaia will emerge strengthened from the trials she is now enduring and that there will be established aoon, as for merly, a union between the emperor and all Russia, a communion between myself and the men of itussia. This union and communion muat serve as a basis for the original principle* of Hussia. "J have faith in your desire to help me in this task." Upon completing his remarks the emperor greeted the individual mem bers of the delegation. The fact that the emperor not only received the bold, plain spoken address without eo much as an indication of hisjdiaapprobation, but expressed full sympathy with the efforts to amelior ate the deplorable state of affairs de picted therein, and in the most direct and explioit fashion renewed the prom ise to summon the representatives of the people, made the deepest impres sion on the delegation. The deleagtion is now preparing an account of the audience, which will lie presented to the Ht. Petersburg douma during the day, and whioh, in accordance with their instructions as well as the imperial wish, will beoom munlcated to all the zemstvfts and may ors of Kussia. NO MORE riNC rCATHCRS.

'ABERDEEN HEEALD. THURSDAY. JUXB 22, 1905 CONFER ON MOROCCO FRANCE AND GERM AM PRAC TICALU A6REE. Affairs of Morocco to Be Subject of Consideration by the Powers. Details and Scope Now being Arranged—Air Is Considerably Cleared by Discussion. Pane, June 20. —Ad iotemhuorta. conference for tbe consideration of tbe if}bin of Morocco it now practically assured—the result of tbe conversation Oetwowi Premier Kouvier and Prince too Kadolin, the German amOaaaador —and attention if now directed to de lining the scope of the conference. Lxjtail* are being rapidly arranged, and tbe officials expect to be able to announce tbe plana for tbe conference in tbe course of four or five days. Tbia result, after tbe severe strain, which tested tbe diplomatic resources of both government*, has tbe effect of relieving tbe tension, the officials of tbe foreign office and tbe diplomat* of tbe German embassy agreeing that an amicable adjustment is near at band. Although the acceptance of tbe con ference gives a certain ci earn re of sue cess to German diplomacy, yet M Kou vier emerges from tbe controversy with tbe advantage of having brought Ger many to exactly define the scope of tbe conference and ao to rid it of the ob jection of being a menace to French interests. Germany has suspected that France bad designs on tbe eovereignty of Mo rocco, but tbe negotiations disclosed that France bad not questioned this sovereignty. Similarly, ,it was dis closed that France bad not designed to interrupt tbe present territorial or po litical status quo of Morocco. This appears to bave been one of Germany's chief apprehensions, as any change in Morocco's status quo might involve an ultimate French protector ate similar to that over Tunis. With both governments favorable to tbe sovereignty of Morocco and to her territorial and political status quo, it remains for tbe conference to adjust tbe equality of commercial rights, as Germany desires this assurance from an international conference instead of through the operations of tbe Anglo- French agreement. GENERAL MAXIMO GOMEZ PASSES AWAY AT HAVANA Havana, June I%.—Gen. Gomez, tbe idol of tbe Cuban popu lace, and the one man above all others to whom the little island republic owes its existence, died at his residence last night after an illness of a month All the members of his immediate family were at bis bedside.

Manifestations of grief are in evi dence on all sides, and mourning em , blems are being placed on nearly every house in the city. The death of Gen. Gomez is a dis tinct blow to the Liberal fusion move ment, as they bad hoped to secure his co-operation in the coming campaign. lie is survived by his widow, five sons and one daughter. SIOSBCC'S rLCET SAILS. Goes to Trancc for Body of John Paul Jones. New York, Jane 19—Itear Admiral Sigsbee's squadron, which was de tailed from the North Atlantic fleet to bring the body of John Paul Jones, the first admiral of the Amerioan navy, to this country, started on its voyage to France yesterday.

Seattle, Jane lU.—The battleehip Nebraska, building attheMoranßros.' yards, will be given her first trial trip some time in November. The battle ship was 73.60 per oent completed last month,t he estimate of the stage of her oompletion taking into aooount the faot that her guns must all be in plaoe before the battleehip is ready to go into com mission. If the guns are not aboard, the battleship will oarry enough ballast to offset the absence of gnns and ammunition. Baseball at "Illdnlflltt Sharp." Seattle, June 20.—A same of base ball at "midnight, sharp," is an nounced as one of the unusual features of entertainment to be offered to the visiting members of the Amerioan In stitute of Mining Engineers, who are to visit Dawson City at the close of the convention to be held at Vietoria July 1, 2, 8 and 4, and it is only one of the many interesting events planned by a special reoeption committee of Dawson citizens, who appreciate the import ance of an unprejudiced report upon the mining possibilities of the upper Yukon district. I TO ATTACK IMS SHALL STOCKMEN COMBINE TO EI6ITT 810 ONES. They Have Been l>r»ct»caßOy Crow*, ed Off the eastern Washington Ranges— Assignments of Leases, by Which State Law Is Circum vented, to (Vc Contested. Olympia, June 2S».—As a result of! the grade.a. restricting of tbe stock grazing territory in Eastern Washing ton and the crowding out of the small er stockmen, toe latter bave formed a combination and are contributing funds in an effort to deviae a way of divesting tbe big stockmen of some of the grazing -ands tbev are now enjoy ing. Lias: week an attorney for tba com bination of small stockmen spent sev eral days in Olympia going over tbe leasing records of the state land office, and as a result of bis researches it is said that a legal battle of magnitude is impending, which will call into question tbe legality of tbe leases on immense tracts of land sitsated in nearly all section' of Eastern Washing ton. In some parts of tbe state stock men some years ago acquired tbe rail road lands at a small figure. These lands oompnsed only tbe odd num bered sections. Big Tracts Under Tence. Tbe state selected tbe even sections for tbe educational land grants, and tbe state lands wete then leased to tbe owners of the railroad lands. In tbia way tracts comprising as much as 100 square miles were placed under fence. Tbe small stockmen bave been free lances until now, as a result of tbe fur ther encroachments of tbe big stock men, the settling up of tbe country, and tbe passage of a law by tbe last legislature restrlcrting the running at large of stock they are having a fight for their lives. The point on which the first attack is likely to tie made is tbe leasing of tbe state lands. Tbe enabling act and i tbe constitution provide that educa i tional lands shall not be leased in i tracts greater than one section to any one person. Cnder a ruling of tbe at torney general tbe land office has per mitted assignments from lessees of their sections to one individual or company, thus circumventing the law in the same way that large mill own ers have bad employes take up claims of government timoer and then bought the claims. How Leases Arc Obtained. A big stockman, desiring to lease state lands, will have his wife and bis foreman and bis foreman's wife and tbeir children and the employes of tbe ranch and bia lawyer and his friends each bid in a section and then later assign to him. Tbe small stockmen bave in mind tbe contesting of these aasigned leases, and if they should be successful not only the stock grazing industry of Eastern Washington, bnt wheat grow ers and other agricultural pursuits would be affected, as the same scheme has been worked in leasing lands in Eastern Washington which are suita ble for wheat growing. There - art) hundreds of instances where one man or company now has under lease, three, ten, twenty or more sections of agricultural lands, and if the combi nation of small stockmen is successful every man who has more than one sec tion in his own name will find himself tbe possessor of a valueless sheet of paper. Tbe investigations were con ducted here with attempts at strict secrecy. WATER IN TRUCtIEE DITCH. Opening Celebrated on Third Anni versary of Reclamation Act. Hazen, Nev., June 19—Mrs. Francis G. Newlands, wife of United States Senator Newlands, of Nevada, broke a bottle of champagne over the headgates of the canal on the Truokee river, two miles above Derby, Saturday. The headgates lifted and a Htream of moun tain water poured into the oanal in its course to the Carson valley, and the first step in making this part of the arid West habitable was celebrated on the third anniversary of the national reclamation aot.
