Japan is Next Country Where People May Revolt By Harry G. Farmer TOKIO, Japan. July 15. —It's Japan'B turn. Revolution Is "catching." Japan has absorbed the Chinese germs into its system, Last January they had a street carmen's strike in Tokio. In the west a strike isn't necessarily Denjiro Kotoku, Japanese socialist leader, who, with I'Z oth ers, was executed by the government. The posts murk the graves of the dead socialists, and in Japan they are pointed out ns the graves of martyrs. very significant. It's mighty sig nificant In Japan. Iv the west a strike means no more than defi ance of an employer. In Japan it means defiance of the govern ment. It's a revolutionary symp tom—pronounced, uumissakable. The Tokio street car men won their strike. Since then there have been strikes and strikes and strikes all over Japan. In about nine out of every ten cases the strikers have won. aa the Tokio street car men did. Why? Oh, merely because ti\e government is afraid the symptoms will im mediately develop into the dis ease—that it will haVe an out-an out revolution on its hands—if it angers the people by a resort to strong measures. There are other revolutionary symptoms. A storm of denunciation of the police has begun, for their cor ruption and arbitrary, despotic disregard of the people's rights. There is a popular outcry against the everlasting, intolerable prying into private affairs by govern ment spies. The mikado's colon ial policy in Korea and Formosa is being raked over the coals. The press says frankly that it is no wonder Formosa has been in a state of rebellion ever since the island fell under Japanese domin ation or that Korea is now on the verge of revolt—that anybody would rebel against such oppres sion as Korea and Formosa have been subjected to by the reaction ary, incompetent officialdom of Japan. The Japanese are growing rest less, too. under the frightful bur den of the taxes they are com pelled to pay. Moreover, they are beginning to realize that the government is wasting the money it is wringing from them. There are bitterer complaints in Japan than anywhere else in the world of the present excessive cost of living. Japan is just beginning to dis- Institute to Make Cure for Mad Dog Bites, is Established on Pacific Coast BERKELEY, Cal., July 15. — Under the direction of Dr. Wilbur A. Sawyer, director of the State hygenic laboratory at the Univer sity of California, a Pasteur in stitute for the manufacture of virus us«d for treatment of rabies, the disease from which hydropho bia is communicated, has been in stalled on the campus. It is the first Pasteur institute this side of tne Mississippi river. With the opening of the insti tute came a government Inspec tion by Surgeon Donald Currie of the United States public health and marine hospital service. Dr. Sawyer is assisted by Miss Esther M. Skolfleld, bacteriologist, and Miss Ruby Cunningham, as sistant bacteriologist. The institute consists of two rooms, one equipped with hutches for rabbits, the other win. drying closet, work tables and other par aphernalia. Extreme care has been taken to obtain cleanliness, and excellent lighting facilities have been secured for the expert worK to be done. The manufacture of this virus with which rabies is fought takes several stages. A rabbit is inocu lated with "fixed virus" as the rabies poison is called, and on the seventh day it sickens and on the eighth day is dispatched. The spinal cord of the animal is then removed and placed in a bottle to dry. The length of time the cord dries determines the strength of the virus In it. TOO MUCH STOLTZFUB FOR SCHOOL, MA'AM Miss Anna Stauffer of Morgan town, Pa., is sure glad school's out. She had 4-d pupils, 30 of whom were blessed with the eu phonious surname of Stoltzfus. All of the tribe concentrated on a few Biblical names for handles to Stoltefus. The teacher numbered and tagged 'em and got away with one term. , ELECTRIC fans LONG GUARANrEE IRU N S Wm. A.

It will be surprising if another decade passes without a revolu tion in Japan. Tacoma Commerce On The Increase Tacoma commerce for June amounted to $2,787,095, accord ing to the customs report. Im ports were $1,456,024 and exports $1,331,071. The commerce of the entire Pu get Sound district amounted to over $8,000,000. Tacoma shipped 126,593 bar rels of flour in the month. HE PAID TAXES ON NOTHING HITTCHINSOiN. Kas., July 15. ■—"That is what I call hard luck," S. S. Ott of Topeka, told county officials here when he^.ts- covered that a tract of land on which he had paid taxes for twen ty-six years did not exist. When Mr. Ott drove out to the land he found only the waters of the Arkansas river. Apparently the river had eaten away every foot of the land, as well as a part of an adjoining tract.

For years past actual cost or engineering one some city work has been less than the assessment levied for the purpose. The sur plus has gone Into the city treas ury. An ordinance was passed a year ago to pay this back and several thousand dollarswas with drawn but still a number of citi zens failed to come In. This morning the council gave them six months more In which to appear and claim the money. If you ever paid any assess ments to the city better look up the rebate. THE TACQMA frfltgß. THE WISE BARKEEP KNEW THE "HANFORD COCKTAIL" George Jacobs, a witness summoned in the Hanford inves tigation at Seattle, testified on the witness stand Friday that he had offered to bet a real estate man by the name of Kerrigan that he could go to at leaßt nine saloons in Seattle, ask for a "Hanford" cocktail and the barkeeper would know instantly what to serve—a dry martini with an onion in It. The bet was taken, Hnd alter Jacobs had proved his case in the first saloon visited, Kerrigan threw up the sponge. The Seattle Star poet couldn't let the amusing incident go by default, so he set up the story in verse: The Rathskeller bar was all aglare; Within Its gorgeous portals Three natty barkeeps waited on A host of thirsty mortals. They never halt or hesitate; Those barkeeps know tlielr biz, And quickly serve the drink you want— Heer, horse's neck or fizz. Then entered and approached the bar, A man named Jacobs, when A friend of his, of former years. Named Mr. Kerrigan, Said: "Say, I'm glad to me you, pal; I'm glad as 1 can be; And J'U be tickled foolish, If You'll have a drink with me." They talked of this, they talked of that, They talked on subjects lianal; And finally Mr. Jacobs snld: 'I'll bet a dollar, Dan'l, "If I name a 'Hanford cocktail,' the Harkeep will quickly nmke It, And never ask of what It's made. A bet, Dan! Do you t;ike it?" "You're on, my boy," said Kerrigan. "Your friendship I'll abuse, Dy betting on a certainty, Of course, you're sure to lose." "Oh, barkeep," Mr. Jacobs cried. To the one named William Klser, "We want two 'Hanford cocktails' as A dinner appetizer." The barkeep didn't bat an eye; He did not hesitate; He mixed: they drank, and JHeobs said: "Say, barkeep, this ia great!" The barkeep smole a lofty smile. And Bald: "There are not many Can tell the difference between A common dry martini "And the justly famous 'Hanford,' which Is a mixture of Vermouth, A little gin, Orgette—a dash — A drink for kings, forsooth. "The difference is: Martini dry An olive stuffed requires; The 'Hanford's' more adroitly made, And higher thoughts inspires. "The olive stuffed may do for some; But the best, the perfect, union, Is Vermouth, gin and Orgette, with A slice or two of onion." Miner With $15,000 Prefers the Steerage NEW YORK, July 15.—After depositing $15,000 with the pur ser of the Baltic, Michael Glbney^ an old Irish miner, threaded his way through the throng of fash ionably dressed cabin passengers and made for the steerage where he will remain until the steamship reaches Queenstown. Gibney attracted a lot of atten tion, but he was too much occu pied with the bag of twenty dollar gold pieces and the roll of Bank of England notes to notice that his shabby attire and strange ap pearance were being made the Sheridan Avenue To Be Paved Sheridan avenue residents won a hard fought victory this morn- Ing when they got the council to agree to pave the street from Sixth to Eleventh streets.
