Russian's Manchurian
Policy Discussed
OPEN DOOR WILL BE KEPT
The Bear Iniforms the United States
There is No Desire to Shut Us
Out of Northern China.
London, May 23. Ambassador Mc
Cormick U here for a few days on hla
Way from St. Petersburg to America,
lie sails on the steamer Kronprinz
Wllhelnv Wednesday next from South
ampton with bis wife and Miss Tatter
son. The St. James Gazette prints an
interview with Mr. - McCormick in
which be is quoted as saying:
"One of my last official acts before
leaving St Petersburg was to interro
gate the Russian government on Its
policy toward Manchuria. I was as
sured that Russia bad no desire to see
Manchurian ports closed to the United
States or to have Its consuls excluded.
The Russian government was. em
phatic in declaring that it was at one
with America in the open door policy
in China, and what applies to the
United States must apply to every
other power. Your government also
received and accepted similar assur
ances. "I know Mr. Witte in a firm advocate
of the open door and I have every
reason to believe that Russia is quite
sincere in the matter. She points out
that It is to her own Interests to sup
port that policy, and I think that Is the
case. The Russian stab men are very
anxious that the Siberian railway shall
be a success, and to be so It must get
freight ami freight in large quanti
ties. Russia cannot of herself supply
Kutlldent to make the railway the de
sired success."
No Cnune l'or Alarm.
"You do not considi r turn that the
situation in the far east is iu any way
periods on account of Russia's policy
in Manchuria?' he was asked.
"I do not," replied Mr. McCormick.
'I can see nothing at present which
need alarm the United States or any
other country."
Mr. MeCormlek added that the rela
tions between the United States and
Russia at the present moment were of
a most friendly character.
"Do you think the United States will
view Mr. Chamberlain's policy In re
gard to protection with disfavor?" was
the reporter's next query.
"I do not see why it should," an
swered Mr. McCormick. "We have
set you the example. The suggestion
that you give preferential treatment
to the colonies Is your own affair.
Canada may one day be able to give
you all the wheat you want, but not
for some time. In the United States,
too, we are a growing nation, and we
are consuming more of our own prod
ucts. I believe the United States will
not always send its raw material In
cotton to England, but will offer you
the finished article."
Russian Actreinloii In Korea.
Yokohama, May 23. A dispatch re

ject of Russia's attempt to establish

two base hits and one three. Also lea
ver, Buchanan and Smith each made clean
home runs and two others were made on
errors.

Lewis, the regular pitcher beingaway, and
pitched an excellent game, striking out 17
men and allowing but five hits off his de
livery. ,
The rest of the team gave him remark
able support playing with only two errors
both of which were excusable ones.
The visitors put up a very poor game in

CLAN GORDON
19 YEARS OLD
Anniversary of Found
ing Today
ADDRESS TO CLAN SUNDAY
it
is Now the Largest and Most
Powerful Qui "of the 156
in the Order.
Clan Gordon, No, 12, Order of Scottish
Clans, of this city, the largest clan of the
lot) in the L nited States and Canada, Is
nineteen years old today, and the mem
bers are taking a good deal of pardonable
pride in tneir organization which is a re
minder of the home country across the
water. There was no celebration of the
event today, but tomorrow the clansmen
will be addressed In the morning by the
Rev. Thomas 1L Mitchell, himself a clans
man. The service will be held at the Pres
byterian church at 10.30 o'clock a. ni.
Clan Gordon has grown from small be
ginnings to be the most powerful clan in
tbe order, through the efforts of its loyal
members. The charter of the clan was
granted to the local Scotchmen on the 23rd
of May, There were less than 20
men who formed the nucleus of the organ
ization which was chartered by the Royal
Clan at St. Louis. Those charter mem
bers went to work and the honored place
at the head Of the order is the result of
their efforts and the efforts of those who
have siuce become associated with them.
Today the membership Las grown to a
total of OfiO, that is, the total will be that
when the 12 men who are now being ex
amined will have become members. Clan
Gordon will not stop until It reaches the
000 mark and it will not stop then, as ef
forts w ill be necessary to keep the clan at
the head of the procession.
For years the struggle for the first place
has been with Clan McGregor of Quincy,
Mass., and it was not until a few years
ago that the local elan went ahead. "Clan
McGregor is now second. Clan Gordon is
the possessor of an elegant trophy won as
a merit for getting new members, and not
a few of the individual members have been
presented badges as a result of their ertorts
in the same line. It is expected that by
June 1, five local clansmen will be present
ed those badges, and it is not impossible
that an additional prize of j will come
to the cian as a whole.
Clan Gordon owns a valuable piece of
lana in this city on Jefferson street. On
Ibis lot they propose to erect In the future
a building to be devoted to the interests of
tae clan, which shall be in every way an
ornament to the city of Barre, It being
planned to erect it of granite.

PRICK, OXE CENT.
BARBED WIRE
FOR HANGING
Angus Nicholson Used
Peculiar Method.
BODYFOUND LAST EVENING
Case is Very Sad as He Laves a
Wife and Three Children. One
Being an Infant.
The body of Angus Nicholson of Cliff
street, cold and perfectly rigid, was found
suspended from a tree just off North Main
street, below Sixth street, last evening.and
the evidence went to show that the man
had committed suicide, several hours be
fore, possibly in the early morning. The
discovery was made by a young lad named
Drumgould, who went into the pasture to
drive home a cow. He hurried back with
the news of his discovery and soon a laro-a
crowd collected at the spot. The mayor
and the police were notified, and after con
siderable delay the body was cut down.
Tho tree from which the
ed himself was in plain view of the street
and the street car line, but the body was
hanging from the opposite side of the tree
so that the body was not noticeable from
the street. It could not be seen except bv
a , person going to the spot.
A piece of barbed wire was the means
by which Nicholson hanged himself. He
had looped one end of it around the tr
above a small branch, and on the other
end had made a slipnoose, first carefully
knocking down the barbs so they would
not cut into his neck.
Into this noose he had thrust his ho,i
and swung off a little elevation. Death
came quickly as the wire cut into the tlsh
and caused strangulation. When found
the man's feet were barely touching the
ground. His cap was still on his head.
Mayor J. Henry Jackson, one of th
first officials there, ordered the body taksn
down and removed to the undertaking
rooms of B. W. Hooker & Co., to be pre
pared for burial.
the cause of the man's act was un
doubtedly insanity. It had been noticed
for some time that he seemed to be troubl
ed with melancholia.
The suicide Is particularly sad because
Muiioison leaves a wife ami three small
hildreu, the youngest of whom is onlv
one week old. Mrs. Nicholson Is sick in
bed.
Nicholson was 33 years old and a hand
polisher.
Nicholson was last employed as a polish
er by A, Anderson & Sou, but he finished
work for them several months ago. It is
reported that he had been away once be
fore this week being absent over night.
On Thursday evening he was seen going
up Sixth street, a short distance from
where his body was discovered the next
evening The piece of barbed wire with
which he committed suicide was taken by
Mayor Jacdson to the police station last
evening. The funeral will be from the
house tomorrow afternoon.
