Special to The Globe.
TACOMA, Wash., May 25.—Today's Ori
ental mail contains news that a ship
ping trust has been organized at Osaka,
Japan, to embrace all the important
Japanese shipping excepting two com
panies now operating lines tp Puget
Sound and San Francisco.
The object is to control the transpor
tation business of competitive ports and
. prevent a duplication of service where
one line of steamers can handle all the
traffic offered. The formation of the At
lantic shipping trust by J. P. Morgan
hurried the formation of the Japanese
combine. The Japanese owners fear that
the Morgan combine will ultimately seek
to control traffic on the Asiatic coast.
This result it is desired to forestall by
organizing Japanese merchant marine so
fully that it will remain the paramount
power in traffic matters from Vladlvos
tcck to Manila.
The headquarters of the trust will be
at Osaka. It controls seventy steam

KINGSTON, St. Vincent, B. W. 1., May
25.—Another eruption on the night of Sun
day, May 18, caused a greater fall of ashes
and stones and more consternation at
Chateau Belair, Island of St Vincent,
than resulted from the eruption of May 7.
Shortly after the appearance of a cloud
May 18, which was belched from the
mountain, Egyptian darkness enveloped
the village of Chateur Belair. The in
habitants rent the air with shrieks and
groped against the banks of the road
leading to Cumberland in their efforts to
flee from the threatened danger. Many
persons had limbs broken. The darkness
lusted one hour, but the exodus from
Chateau Belair continued all night.
Detonations, smoke and lava from the
volcano continued the next day, May 19,
and the people still tried to leave Chateau
Belair far Kingston and other towns. A
% heavy rainfall occurred at Chateau Be
'lair on the 19th, the first in the district
for two months, and the streets, huts
and shops were flooded. As the volcanic
diminished after the IPU; some thirty of
the inhabitants returned to Chateau Be
Kingston is longing for rain. There
is no hope for the resuscitation of the
Carib country for years to come. The
canal that supplied water to that country
for domestic or manufacturing purposes
has dried up and the district is deso
late. .The government is treating for
the purchase of an estate upon which to
settle the refugees, and carpenters are
erecting huts on safe locations to relieve
the congestion in Kingstown.
The number of new craters in the dis
turbed district cannot be ascertained, as"
ascent of the mountain is impossible, but
there are apparently four active craters
there. Rumbling sounds* are heard and
vapor Is still issuing from different por
tions of the mountain and the lava is
flowing. Mount Enham shows no dis
tinct signs of activity. The United
States steamer Dixie arrived here yester
day with 100,000 rations and clothing, med

Vote- on the Philippine BUI still
Remote, as the 7 Country < Must -
Have More of the Oratory
, It's Thirsting For.
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 25.-From
present indications the senate will de
vote another full week, if rot a longer
time, to the Philippine bill. The predic
tion is freely made that a vote will not
be reached before the r.jlddle of the fol
lowing week. Senator Burrows will be
heard tomorrow in advocacy of the bill,
and among others who are expected fto
speak this week are Senators Patterson,
Pettus, Bailey and Bacon, in " opposition
to the bill, and Senator Spooner in its
support. : t ■ 7.
When the speeches are disposed of there
will be an effort to secure two or three
days for the consideration of amend
ments, allowing speeches not' exceeding
ten or fifteen minutes en each. It is not
expected that there will be any session
Friday, as that is Memorial day.
Cuba and the Canal.
The continued deferment of the time
for taking a vote on the Philippine meas
ure has caused considerable abatement
in the preparation of the discussion of
the Nicaragua canal bill and the Cuban
reciprocity Bill, which will be taken up
next in succession or jointly. The beet
sugar people predict a month's debate
on the Nicaraguan bill, but this predic
tion is not. in accord with the views of
the advocates of the Nicaragua bill or
its opponents. 7'
Both these elements are now claiming a,
majority and are saying that"the sooner
the vote.is reached the better they will
be satisfied. The beet sugar men, how
ever, are counting confidently on the co
operation of; the side which finds itself
in the minority in the matter of post
poning the vote on the canal bill, In
other words, the beet sugar advocates
welcome the introduction of any ques
tion which will defer consideration of
the Cuban bill, since they think that
there will be no Cuban legislation at all
if the taking up of that question can; be
postponed until after the passage of all
the appropriation bills.
Won't Help Their Opponents.
• The appropriation bills should be passed
before the Ist of July, in order to supply
money for the support of; the govern
ment after that date, and they conse
quently expect that considerable time will
be given in June to the appropriation
They count confidently on the early ad
journment of congress after the appro
priation bills are ; out of the way, and
they hold that if after that time there
is an effort to pass the Cuban bill It
will be incumbent on the friends of the
bill to maintain a quorum in the senate.-.
"It would be hardly fair," said a beet
sugar Republican- senator today, 'jto ex
pect the opponents of the proposed reduc
tion to 7 assist in prolonging a session in
midsummer for the purpose of passing
a measure which they do not want to see
enarrted: into law."
There is still a - considerable Repub
lican element in the senate opposed -. to
tariff reduction, and It ls asserted by.
the beet sugar men that the forty-five
Republicans necessary to pass the bill
have-not yet been secured. It is de
clared, however, that a practically unan
imous vote could be secured for a rebate
measure. \ ~ ' .
House Prospects.
The bill to regulate Immigration will
have the right of way in the house over
all measures except appropriation bills,
revenue bills and conference reports. De
bate on this bill probably will be resumed,
on Tuesday, Monday being set aside for
the District of Columbia.7> After the im
migration bill is acted upon the commit
tee on rules will report a special order
for the consideration of the anti-anarchy
bill. This will be followed by the sub
sidiary coinage bill. .
It Is anticipated by the leaders of the
house that these measures will occupy
the entire week, in which event the Pa
cific cable bill will not be reached until
the first week In June. It In turn will
be followed by the irrigation bill.

fused to be interviewed on, the «confer
ence, and could not b<rflWuced to say a
word upon national politics. f:f "~"~f 7*

Mr. Johnson chose: the physiological

bat them needs the * naming of an at

While Mr. Johnson is a radical like Mr.
Bryan,- his monetary success commands
the respect of the business world, as Mr.
Bryan's.rhetorical powers never did, the
politicians further argue.

WASHINGTON, D. C.. May 25.-The
members of the French mission finished
their visit here today and tonight left
the city for Niagara Falls on their
week's tour of the east before sailing for
home. The visitors found every minute
occupied in attending divine service, re
turning calls, official and otherwise,- and
in drives about the city and suburbs.
7 Ambassador Cambon accompanied the
members of the mission to St. Patrick's
church in the morning, where low mass
was said by Rev. Dr. Mangie.n, of Balti

- Cardinal Gibbons, in his sermon, spoke
of ■"■ the French missionaries who . had
crossed the seas to America and preached
the gospel to the aboriginal inhabitants,
carrying the torch of faith in one hand
and the torch of civilization in the other.
Of Rochambeau, Cardinal Gibbons said:
Tribute to Rochambeau.
"Without detracting from the merits
of his brothers in arms, I can affirm that
Rochambeau was the flower of the French
allied; army. Mature in years, experi
enced in military campaigns, a veteran of
the Seven Years' war, calm, deliberate,
self poised, he was a man according to
Washington's heart— the general on whose
counsel and prudence he could rely more
than on that of any other commander."
... Several of * the party, including the
Count and the Countess de Rochambeau
and the Count de Lafayette visited the
Arlington cemetery and Fort Meyer
nearby: They were escorted through the
grounds by Capt. Lewis, of the Second
cavalry. r.
An unexpected feature of the afternoon,
and one which pleased the visitors very
much, was an invitation from President
Roosevelt to accompany him and several
others on a horseback ride. The entire
party assembled in front of the White
house about 4 o'clock, the visitors in
their uniforms,' making a very pretty pic
: ture in the bright afternoon sunlight A
photograph was taken of the group while
there. The nresldent guided the party
through the northern section of the city

High-Pressure Features of a Novel
; Race in Which Passengers Try
to Jump Out.
Special to The Globe.
WICHITA, Kan., May 25.— a race
between a cyclone and . a Santa Fe pas
senger train this morning the latter
came out about fifty feet ahead after a
flight of twelve miles.
Northbound passenger No. 406, due
here at noon, left Arkansas City at 10
o'clock. The cyclone, which came from
the southwest, started on the right of
way and the race commenced immedi
ately. Conductor Strain says that he
locked all doors and windows to keep
passengers from leaping out. Many
women were half crazed and tried to
jump out. The heat was unbearable.
He stood .on the rear platform and
could feel the suction of the cyclone as
it drew nearer. Engineer Watts pulled
his train* at fifty miles an hour, barely
keeping out of the storm's clutches.
Fireman Johnson was so exhausted
when the train reached Winfield, where
the cyclone cloud shot upward and dis
solved, that he had to be carried from
his cab. The engineer continued his
run to Newton.
The cyclone swept a path of about
fifty miles and destroyed farm property.
In Wichita tonight there are indications
of the cyclone. Rain has been falling
since dusk. -

Astounding Claim Set Up by Carol
Norton, an Advocate of Chris
tian Science.
WASHINGTON, D. 'C. May 25.—Carol
Norton, in a lecture delivered before a
large audience In the Columbia theater
today, asserted that 2,000,000 cases of dis
ease " have been -uealed In Chris
science during the thirty-five years of
its history, and that in that time about
700 Christian science churches have been
established and are now flourishing.

Court-martial Findings of Ac

Reviewing Authority
OF WAR • -
Maj. Waller. It Is Intimated, Dl*
Wrong in Not Referring the Mat- 2
ter to Gen. Smith Defore fs
Killing Off Filipinos. ~ _
MANILA, P. 1.. May 25.-The official
findings of the court-martial which tried
Maj. L. W. T. Waller and Lieut. John
A. Day, of the marine corps, for execut
ing natives of the island of Samar with
out trial, have been made public. Tho '
reviewing authority of the court, Mai. '
Adna R. Chaffee, commander-in-chief of
the American forces in the Philippines,
has expressed its approval of the court's
findings In both cases. Referring to tho
case of Maj. Waller,-the reviewing au- 1
thority says: (
"The sending of vie natives in ques- i
tion to their death partook more of un
lawful retaliation than a justifiable act
of war. In Justice to the American mili
tary service the finding of acquittal de-1
mand that they s-all not meet with un» |
qualified approval. j
"The marines in Samar underwent great
suffering before their rescue, and i.wir
officers, from their sick beds, voiced the I
revengeful anger of the men, who tele- j
phoned to Maj. Waller advising that the
stevedores be klllefl. Maj. Waller re
ceived this message while he was sick, '
prostrate from a fever, suffering acuta
pain of body duo to exposure and his '
exertions in behalf of his men and men
tal anguish concerning their fate which j
had long been In doubt. ti \
Gen. Smith Not Consulted. ,f\
"Maj. Waller was at the. time in telex ;
phonic communication with Gen. Smith. j
who commanded the American forces in'
•Samar, .but,ho deliberately chose not i
to consult Gon: Smith regarding his con-|
tempjated.'actlon, and, rather than fore-'
1 go the execution of his unrestrained will, \
he assumed the power the laws of war j
and the customs of the service corner I
upon commanding officers only in time of .
war. J
"Giving heed to the mental attitude of
Maj. Waller, as much of the findings
of the court as are to the effect that'
Maj. Waller is not guilty of murder r.a.
approved. But the reviewing authority
is at a loss to understand why the court
did not find against Maj. Waller in the
minor offense. With the exception noted,
the acquittal, as it appears in the rec
ord of the proceedings, is disapproved."l
Llent. Day's Case. ||
Referring to the case of Lieut. Day,
the reviewing authority says:
"The accused knew that for three weeks
Maj. Waller had undergone a test of his
mental and physical -endurance such as
few men are called upon to suffer. While
fully conceding the grave responsibili- ;
ties assumed by a subordinate officer in f
willfully disobeying an order of his com- j
manding ofllcerr still, the weighty reas- 1
ons related, with which Lieut. Day was
acquainted, M tainted Maj. Waller's order j
that Lieut. Day should have been prompt-.
Ed to positive disobedience. - , j
"An officer must be conscientiously re- I
gardful of tho unquestioned legality of j
his agency In taking the lives of his fel- j
low men. Above and beyond all personal j
considerations, officers must guard the:
name and honor of the country. Had I
Lieut. Day been actuated by such con-'
elderations he would probably have pre-,'
vented one of the most regrettable lnci-1
dents in the annals of the military service '
of the United States."

Columbia Mines. V
■«« '"
FERNIE, B. C, May This was a
day of funerals, and In one Instance there
were fourteen coffins in the procession.
There were thirty funerals of victims of
the mine disaster Thursday. At the mine
the active work of recovering the bodies
has * been for the time suspended, and
all energy- is being expended along tho
line of making the mine safe for the res
cuers. .." *
The force of the explosion is now seen
to have been great. The root in soma
places has been shattered to each an ex
tent that it would now 1.. nothing short
of foolhardlness for the rescuers to re
main longer in the mine without taking
necessary precautions for their own safe
ty. The men In the No. 2 mine wera
evidently killed by the concussicn from
the explosion. The bodies do not appear
to be mutilated. ?
Nine.additional bodies were taken front]

that have been recovered. J
