NICHOLAS - BENDS KNEE He Decided To-day to Evac uate the Fortress of Scutari RESPONSE TO DEMAND OF EUROPEAN POWERS Ambassadors Will Decide Details in London I-. , , To-day ' London, May 5. Sir Edward Grey, British foreien minister, announced at to-day's meeting of the ambassadors that Montenegro had unconditionally i,!,.H the auestion of the future of Scutari in the hands of the Europeaii TwQ J.;.inn roafheA hv Kin? jilicholas at the very last moment, had Ike effect of immediately relieving the great tension of European politics and caused unbounded satisfaction to diplo mats and the public generally. It is hoped that this action of Monte negro will do away with all necessity for military incursions into Albania, such as Austria and Italy were eontemplat ' ing against Es&aad Pasha, former Turk ish commander of Scutari, and other in denemlent leaders. The example of Montenegro is expected to have a salu tary effect in causing other disturbing elements in the Balkan peninsula to Dow to the will of Europe. . Theking of Montenegro, when he took possession of Scutari, on April 23, f ft er a six months' siege, which cost the lives of thousands of Montenegrins and Turks; declared he would hold the city until the last drop of Montenegrin blood had been spilt. As the powers had pre viously decided that Scutari was to be part of the future state of Albania, a crisis was brought about and the pow ers immediately brought strong pressure to bear to force the evacuation. Cettinje, May 5. King Xicholas .to- day derided to evacuate the fortress of Scutari, in response to the demand of the European powers, , , A JAPANESE CITY HAS CONFLAGRATION Hakodate in Island of Joso Is Beset by Eire, According to Cablegram Re- ceived in San Francisco.

WON THE RACE EASILY, Kohlemainf Outstripped All Others in Fifteen Mile Run. New York, May 5. William Kohle mainf, the professional runner, easily outstripped eight other contestants in a fifteen mile professional champion ship race at Celtic park, Long Island, yesterdayj in the teeth of a strong wind and on a track that was only fairly good.. The winner's time, 1:20:14, was remarkably fast, considering the re straining breeze, and Kohlemainf. under more favorable conditions, would un doubtedly have better-sd the world's rec ord of 1:18:15, made by A. E. Wood, over the same track last year. Wood, who was one of the entrants, failed to come on from his home in Montreal, feel ing confident that Tom Longboat on his showing in a recent time trial, would bring the prize back to Canada. Billy Queal of Alexandria Bay, Amer ica's best long distance runner, finished second, nearly 800 yards behind the win ner. Tom Longboat of Canada quit at five and a fourth miles and lost 4M) yards, but went on again and took third place, 350 yards behind Queal, with Ted Brooks of Fall River fourth. They were the only men to complete the full course. The other starters were J. J. Lee, Bos ton; Paul Westerland, San Francisco; Harvey Cohn. A. Kent and Edward Tou hy of this city. After going nine miles, Kohlemainf broke away from Queal. who never caught up with the leader, who cov ered eleven miles, 760 yards in the first sixty minutes. THREW OFF ASSAILANT.

Governor Johnson of California to Allow Time for Protest. Sacramento, Calif., May 5. The Cal ifornia anti-alien landholding act, which pased both houses of the legislature within 24 hours after bringing about one of the most unusual situations in the history of the nation, will lie on Govern or Johnson's desk without his signature until Secretary of State Bryan can con fer with President Wilson in Washing ton. This will mean a delay of nearly a week, as Secretary Bryan left here Sat urday evening and will not reach the national capital until Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Governor Johnson will wait, as ne says, "a reasonable time," for whatever protests the government may make, after whifh he will Bijrn the bill. He is required bv law to veto all acts passed up to hint by the legislature within 10 days of final passage providing tne en acting body remains in session for that length of time. Otherwise, he baa 30 days. It appeared that the legislature would not adjourn until May 13 or later, which would require the governor to act on or before Tuesday, May 13. There is much speculation here as to the next probable step to be taken by the government against the measure, it is generally thought, however, that President Wilson will state his objec tions otiee more to Governor Johnson and then seek through diplomacy to answer the possible protests from Tokio. Opinion as to the effectiveness of the act in accomplishing its purpose, the elimination of the Japanese farmer, is divided. Until the final amendment was adopted permitting aliens ineligible to citizenship to lease agricultural . lands for three years, the measure was the most drastic of any that had been pro posed. Now, however, it is asserted by many that it will accomplish little, in asmuch as it does not stipulate that the leases may not be renewed again and again. Governor Johnson and the rrogressives regard the measure as a necessary first step in accomplishing what they believe to be the deBire or the people of the state. "This act establishes the palicy of the state towards alien landholders," was their , answer to those who asked for a more rigid law. "Two years, or four years, hence, it will be an easy matter to strike out the leasing clause it the public demands it. But just now it would word a hardship upon scores of citizen landowners.
