"When on his way to Bl Paso two
weeks ago, Mr. Roberts received a
telegram from S. S. McClure. publisher
of McClure's Magazine and the NeT

Empress Remains in Tokio,
Another Heir to Throne
Being Expected Scon.
Tokio. Japan, rcov. S. Yoshihito. em
peror of Japan and 122d head of the
Japanese imperial house after the first
emperor Jimrou, whose reign began
1575 years ago. left Tokio today for
Kioto to make his state entry into the
capital of his forefathers and there
formally accede to the throne of the
empire of the Rising Snn. The mon
arch was to have been accompanied
by empress Sadako, but the nearness
of the period when her majesty is ex
pected to give birth to, another heir
prevented her from participating in the
o Cheering Permitted.
As the emperor emerged from the
palace he was greeted by 100,000 school
children, who paid silent homage to the
ruler. There was no cheering, the au
thorities bearing in mind the accident
which happened to king George recently
on the western war front when his
horse was frightened by the cheers of
the soldiers and threw him.
" The imperial corriage was preceded
to the railroad station by the "kashi
kodokoro" or divine mirror, which rep
resents the spirit of the grand imperial
ancestress or snn goddess, Amaterasu
Omikami. and was accompanied by the
two other sacred treasures which sym-.
bolize the sanctity and power of the
thmn, .r Kinnon. the sacred sword and
the sacred jewel, sometimes 'known as
th necklace of nearl-Iike gems with
the magnificent curve, which have been
handed down from emperor to emperor
through untold generations.
The whole city of Tokio is is joyous
fete unexampled in Japanese history
since the triumphant entry of emperor
Mutsuhito. nearly 50 years ago. Hun
dreds of thousands of people are here
from the provinces, most of them to
remain until the great celebration in
Tokio at the end of the month when
the emperor returns from Kioto. Spe
cial flags and paper lanterns are sus
pended over every door to mark the
inauguration of the happy coronation
period. Streets, parks and public
buildings are decorated with festal flag
and banner. The tramcars wear gar
lands. From the noble to the rick
sha man the dominating note Is Joy and
Xn extensive celebration of the coro
nation will begin in Tokio the first part
of December, and naval and military re
views will be held as a climax of the
coronation period.
Little Dictagraph Is On
the Job At County Jail
There is a dictagraph In good work
in? order at the county jail. Every
thing that is said in the Jail Is heard
by someone with his ear to the hard
rubber ear-piece and, if there is any
thing of Importance said, it Is imme

An attorney called at the Jail Satur
day to confer with a client He talked
for almost an hour and when he reached
his office he discovered that the en

the authorities and inquiries were be
ing made on the basis of the informa
