ASKS FOR A WAR
Dr. J. E. Buckley Would Have
Mexico Invaded by Army of
HE SUES PRESIDENT TAFT
Chicago Physician Alleges That Ger
many and Japan Are in Scheme
to Land Troops.
President Taft has been sned In a
court of law to compel him to perform
administrative or, as lawyers wonld
say, "ministerial" acts. Dr. James Ed
ward Buckley, a practicing physician
of Chicago, who has twice instituted
proceedings against Secretary of State
Philander C. Knox, brought an action
against President Taft in the Wash
ington District supreme court and ask
ed that a mandamus be issued to com
pel the chief executive to show cause
why he should not be compelled to di
rect attention of congress to the con
ditions in Mexico and recommended
that an army for the conquest of that
republic be promptly dispatched thith
er by way of the gulf and the Pacific.
This should be done, the complain
ant states, to prevent a "ruinous war,
which would entail the loss of the
Philippines, the Hawaiian Islands and
the canaL" through the ctvoperation
of the Japanese now in Mexico with
Dr. Buckley contemplates an Inva
sion of Mexico by the Germans to
"enforce the death penalty on Mexi
cans for the murder of German sub
jects and an assault on a German wo
man." The president must appear in
court in person or by attorney if the
court should entertain the complaint.
FILES THE PAPERS PERSONALLY.
The suit was filed by the physician
personally. On Aug. 9 and again on
Oct. 3, both of last year. Dr. Buckley
sued In the same court for a manda
mus against Secretary of State Knox
to compel him to perform certain acts.
Both suits were dismissed.
The president is accused of "indiffer
ence toward the life and liberty of
Americans and others residing in Mex
ico." It is declared that a week before
the last adjournment of congress the
chief executive possessed Information
which wonld have justified an army
and navy demonstration down there.
He demands to know why congress
was not informed about it- The send
ing of the soldiery to Texas is charac
terized as a political move.
The Diaz administration is called a
"Wall street exporting agency," with
Henry Taft. brother of the president.
as its "chief attorney." The president
is charged -with having embarrassed
and handicapped the insurgent party
in Mexico by mobilizing the army on
the frontier. The petition further
states that the Mexican situation ha3
been "dovetailed with American money
interests." Henry Taft is said to see
things from a Wall street point of
view, and the physician thinks he
"communicates his viewpoint to the j
president." This, he declares, can be
confirmed by Attorney General Wick-
' ersham. who is mentioned in the peti
tion as Henry Taft's former law part
ner. Details of alleged holdups, robberies
and other unlawful acts are set out In
the petition. The cost of filing the pe
tition was $10. which Dr. Buckley paid.
GOLD FOUND IN IDAHO.
Chinese Trader Tells of Discovery
Made on Exploration Trip.
Fiacer ground rich in gold has been
discovered in the Blackfoot district in
northern Idaho, ninety-three miles
southeast of Spokane, by Ah Ten, a
Chinese trader, according to his state
ments to olli'lals of the Cnited States
customs house in Spokane ou return

The deposits, which are four miles
from a flowing stream and require
not less than fifteen miles of flumes
to convey water to the gravel, were
found more than thirty years ago by
two Chinese prospectors, who were
killed and robbed by a white man.
Yen says that a woman who sewed
the poke to hold the miners gold told
the rustler of the find of the Chinese
and urged him to locate claims. Ia
stead he murdered the miners and car
ried off their nuggets.
