Air m. GERMANY, TOO Belief Genera! in Berlin That She Must Follow Great Britain and Russia, Aid Declare for Herself a Sphere #f Influence in Chinese Territory. Declaration of Salisbury Well Re ceived in Washington Offi cial Circles. British and Russian Spheres Will Be Open to American Com merce. BERLIN, Muy 2.—It is the belief in political circles here that England hav ing relinquished the open door in China and given her adhesion to the sphere of influence policy there, Germany must follow suit. The Tageblatt says ''The first con sequence of the Anglo-Russian agree ment must he that Germany, too, must declare the Hoang Ho valley to be her sphere. It would be far reaching error were Germany to confine herself to the province of bhang Tung." IS WELL RECEIVED. Announcement of Spheres of Influence Pleases Official Washington. "WASHINGTON. May 2.—Lcnl Salis bury's speech in reference to the agree ment reached by Great Britain and Russia, by which China was divided in spheres is well received here. By this agreement has been removed an ele ,ment that threatened to involve in hos tilities three great nations with which the United States was desirous to live on the most friendly terms. There was some curiosity to know just how the commercial interests of the United States are likely to be effected by this important arrangement. It may be stated that the highest official authority here does not accept the view set out in some of the British news papers that the United States has lost chance in China: that the door is to be shut against us. and that we have de served this exclusion by delaying to substantially assist England in securing the open door policy in China, It is believed that so far as the British sphere in China is concerned the United States will have the entree commercially, while assurances have been received from Russia that the United States commerce will be treated on terms of equality with Russian com merce in any portion of China that may come under her influence.

Nearly all of those from Can yon Creek went home at midnight, while the morning train from Missoula took the balance of those from Mullan. Many inquiries are made as to the likelihood of martial law and the prob able outcome of an attempt to punish the evildoers by some who are really desirous of meting out justice. Gov ernor Sternberg's estimate of .00 troops being necessary to maintain peace is all right if nothing more is desired, but should arrests le attempted, many more than the governor's estimate would be needed. Miners are all armed and their positions on Canyon Creek and at Mullen are nearly impregnable, while the country is full of men and women who will furnish all possible in formation to them.

Ex«Ctovernor Flower H»y» It Is I'arfoctljrj Jn»t tuil ('roper. NEW YOKK, May —Ex-Governor Roswell P. Flow«-r, who is at the hoad of great enterprises which will have to pay large sums of money under the terms of the Ford franchise tax bill, declares that he is in complete sym pathy with the object which that meas ure seeks to attain. Mr. Flower said he believed that corporations should bo allowed to make a stated reasonable protit annually, and that they should be required to pay additional taxes in proportion as their franchises increased in value. He believed, he said, in the granting of perpetual franchises under these conditions, as capitalists would then feel safe in investing great sums in semi-public enterprises and the city at th" same time would derive greater benefits in the same proportion DON'T BE and the demand for Lake County farms is increasing. If an those who hold the franchises. Mr. Flower said that the justice of taxing franchises had passed out of the debateable stage and he believed the directors of street railroad, telephone, gas, telegraph and subway companies would be wise to pay willingly a fair tax for the privilege* they have been given, to the city. Corporations have nothing to fear from the Ford bill, K.. Flower declared, because the United States supreme court in the Nebraska decision established the fact that a cor poration could not be taxed out of ex istence. Government Majority In Bpatn.
