CHINA'S OPEN DOOR
Involved in the Question
That is Now Agitat- 4
Washington, April 23. Minister
Conger lias cabled from Peking to Sec
retary Hay a synopsis of the demands
upon China by Russia respecting con
trol cf Manchuria. This account agrees
precisely with the press report of Rus
sia's last coup. Secretary Hay will
take no action in the matter until he
has communicated the facts to the
president and has learned the latter's
wishes. The present impression here
is that the Russian action is a. dis
tinct breach of faith with the United.
States. The Russian government
pledged itself three times formally,
and the documents are of record, that
the "open door" should be maintained
in Manchuria and that Russian troops
would be withdrawn as soon as peace
Also Stipulated by Treaty.
Finally the latter promise took the
form of a treaty stipulation. It was
provided that the evacuation should
.take place within three distinct pe
riods. The last Russian soldier should
have left Manchuria April 2, accord
ing to that treaty. But a plausible
explanation fDr a temporary retention
of the remaining Russian troops was
offered in the claim that the country
was still disturbed and that vigorous
military methods were necessary in
the Interest of sanitation.
We May Make a Remonstrance.
umciais nere declare that there is
no danger of war with Russia, over
this incident. The government of the
United. States has recorded its ideas
of what should be done in Manchuria,
and as the result of Secretary Hay's
projected conference with the presi
dent it is probable that a further re
monstrance will be added. But it is
expected that, for the time being at
least, Russia will allay foreign oppo
sition, or at lea'st that of the United
States, by carrying out its pledge as
to the "open door."
RUSSIA HAD HEKN PREPARING
Can't Be Headed Off by Small Thing Like
There will be no additional treaty
ports in Manchuria if Russia succeeds
in its latest move. Ne Chwang, how
ever, is still a treaty port, and until
Russia make3 a further move to ap
ply her customs system to that iort
United States products may enter there
at the uniform rate of 5 ier cent,
duty collected in the southern Chinese
ports. An official of the government
well informed regarding Chinese af
fairs say that the step taken by Russia
is one for which she has been prepar
ing a number of years. Extraordinary
as it may seem, he says, there appears
to be no way of preventing the con
summation of the; plan. Japan is in no
position to dispute the action, and even
with the assistance of England it is
doubtful, in his opinion, whether the
purpose of Russia could be changed.
As to the interest of this govern
ment; he said, it was doubtful wheth
er the United States could look with
favor on the far greater control of the
Pacific ocean which the new move
would give Russia. He had no doubt
that eventually Russia would apply
the Russian tariff to the new terri
tory, in which case the United States
would endeavor to sell the Russians
raw materials for manufacture in place
of the finished products which now go
to that part of China.
When Russia leased certain Chinese
ports for twenty-five years assurances
were given Ambassador Hitchcock
that the open door would be main
tained. To make this more emphatic
Secretary Hay Sept. 0 addressed a let
ter to Ambassador Tower calling at
tention to the categorical assurances
given his predecessor by Russia when
she leased the iorts at Port Arthur,
Tu-Lien-Wan and the adjacent terri
tory In the Lioa-Tung peninsula. Dec.
18, 1S90, Count Muravieff replied to
Hay's note, raying "that the imperial
government bad demonstrated its firm !
intention to follow the policy of the
In the same note the count said that
as to other terrtiory the fixing of du
ties belonged to China, and "the im
perial government has no intention of
claiming privileges for Its own sub
jects to the exclusion of ther foreign
era." The count said: "The imperial
government is happy to have complied
with the wishes of the American gov
ernment" . ..
Tawas City, Mich., April 23. Mr,
and Mrs. John Baguley, of this city
are alarmed over the fact that nothing
has been heard from their 13-year-old
son who left home on the evening of
March 17 last to go to choir practice in
the home of his his Sunday school
teacher in East Tawas. The last seen
of him was by some of the other
choir boys, whom he told that he was
not going to slay for practice. It is le
lievcd that he boarded a train about
to start for Kay City.
The boy had taken a great dislike
to school, and had told his companions
that he would run away If he got a
chance. He spoke of entering a busi
ness college. He wore long trousers,
and is described as tall for his age,
and slim. He was of fair complexion,
parted his hair In the middle, and had

MOSQUITO PROBLEM ONE
OF EFFECTIVE DRAINAGE
The popular belief now is that the
mosquito carries malaria around in
his wicked bill and innoculates people
with' the disease. In the east a
campaign against the insect has be
gun and the papers there are explain
ing how to get rid of them.
The great reservoirs, especially in
tiie rural districts, are rain water
barrels. Even broken crockery, flow
er pots and discarded fruit cans in
the back yards hold water enough to
form breeding places for rhosquitos
enough to vex a whole neighborhood.
The same is true of smalt pools on
private premises or by the roadside.
The remedy is the old one of fight
ing dirt. A mosquito lives by the ne
glect of citizens to keep their prem
ises clean. When this is done he Iras

thus an effective agent for scattering
disease can be annihilated anil driven
out of existence in a great measure.
They have tried this on long Island
and have experienced relief. It is now
a well ascertained fact that if the mo
squito is not the main agent in dis
seminating malaria, he is an import
ant one, and he also spreads yellow
fever, smallpox and other maladies
with facility. He can be put down
by drainage on the one hand and
petroleum on the other, and with
these two remedies civilization ought
to battle with him and win.

AS TO PROPERTY
It Must Be Identified
Before a Charge Can
Washington. April 25. Counsel for
Gen. and Mrs. Tvner todav submitted
to Postmaster General Payne the pa
pers purporting to be the ones taken
from the safe in the department by
Mrs. Tvner last Tuesday.
Washington. April 23. Attorney
General Knox has expressed the opin-
on to Postmaster (Jeneral Payne that
unless there is something to show
whether the documents taken from the
safe in the rostotiice department by
Mrs. Tyuer are government proierty-
or private papers no case would lie.
This statement was made after Knox
had gone ovr the papers forwarded
to him by the postoflice department.
Payne replied, 'by stating the circum
stances attending the taking of the pa
pers and the fact that most of the- pa
pers filed in such government safes are
of a confidential nature, and therefore
are not of record. ,
Position of the Postoflice.
The position taken by the postoffic
department now is that it has done all
that is possible to do to establish the
facts in the ease; that the impropriety,
of the act is of equal importance to
the nature of what was taken, and
that any further steps rest with the
department of justice. It is known by
the postmaster general that the safe
from which nil the paiers were taken
has contained valuable official papers
at various times, and that Tyner has
so stated. It is not known, however,
whether any such paiers were in tho
safo since Tyner last had access to it.
Tyner's Counsel Calls on Payne.
Attorney Bose Terry, of this city,
counsel for the Tyners, called on the
postmaster general. He told the post
master general that the Tyners would
be glad to have the postmaster general
or any representative of his depart
ment look over the papers at the Ty
ner residence. Payne talked with Ter
ry at some length, and pointed out to
him that the Tyners were given an op
portunity immediately after the papers
were taken to open them in the pres
ence of the officers of the department,
and had refused to show them or to In
dicate to the government representa
tives even the nature of the papers.
MAT LET THE HATTER DROP
Bo Par as an Attempt to Recover th Paw
pera Taken Is Concerned.
Tayne was asked subsequently if he
declined Terry's proposition, but said
he could not discuss that phase of the
question. It may 1k stated as the de
partment's attitude, however, that it
will not give much weight to any pa
pers that are returned, and that it ia
unlikely any further serious effort will
be made to recover the papers, in view
of the fact that there is no way of
showing whether any papers returned
were the onfs actually taken.
Postmaster General Payne said: "If
there were conclusive evidence that all
the documents taken away would be
shown, that would 1 one thing; but
the fact that these papers that were
taken have been out of the possession
of the department for three days is an
other thing. If there was any motive
to take the papers, or any intention of
doing away with them, there has been
ample time to do it. Whether the pa
pers were private or not the impro
priety of the act Is apparent, to say
"I regard it as quite as improper tor
take from a safe in a government of
fice the priwne papers 'of General Ty
ner or Mrs. Tyner, or of anybody else,
in the manner that those papers were
taken, as to take any other papers.
