Special Message From Gov
ernor of California.
Attn Atttmbfy to Rescind Its AetTorr
In Segregating Japanese School
J. Children and Quotes the President's
Telegram on the Subject—Whole
s Matter Put Over S«v«ral Days by
Vote ef Assembly.
Sacramento, Cal., 6.—Governor
fftJIett sent to tt\e assembly a special
message appealing to that body to
rescind Its aotion by which the Japa
nese school segregation bill was
passed. The governor calls attention
to the contention of Japan, which is
not refuted by the United States gov
ernment, that the bill aB passed vio
lates the treaty rights of the empire.
He does not enter into a discussion
•f the merits of the position, stating
that it Is a debatable question, but
reiterates that Japan would consider
It an unfriendly act to exclude from
the public schools the children of its
subjects. After quoting the message
received from President Roosevelt
within a few hours after the passage
of the bill Governor Qillett's message
"A telegram so forcible as this com
lac from the president of the United
States is entitled to full consideration
add demands that no hasty or ill con
sidered action be taken by this state
Which may involve the whole country.
"It seems to me it is time to lay
Sentiment and personal opinion and
Other considerations aside and take a
broad and unprejudiced view of the
important question involved in the
proposed legislation and in a calm and
dispassionate manner pass upon them,
keeping In mind not only the interests
Of our state but of the nation as well
and the duty we owe to It in observ
ing the treaties entered into by it
With a friendly power."
Calls Attention te Former Pretest.
The message calls attention to the
protest of Japan against the resolu
tion of the San Francisco school board
of two years ago directing that Orien
tals be compelled to attend their own
schools and the action of the federal
government in commencing suit to
have the order rendered nugatory.
This suit was dismissed when the
school board withdrew the offensive
The governor declares that there is
BO present danger to the California
School* by reason of the attendance
Of Japanese pupils, so far as is known.
Without expressing any opinion
thereupon the governor quotes the
treaty guaranteeing to Japan the
rights And privileges of the most fa
In conclusion he says: "I most re
spectfully submit this message to you
with the full hope and belief that
when final action shall be taken noth
lng will be done which can be the
subject of criticism by the people of
this nation and that no law will be
enaeted which will be in contraven
tion with the Constitution or any
treaty with the United States."
On motion of Mr. Johnson of Sac
ramento, after an appeal from Speak
Stanton for delay, the assembly
unanimously voted to postpone fur
ther action on the Japanese school
segregation bill until next Wednes

regarding the published reports touch

(^lightest Sensation of Burning.
Professor James and Other Psychol
ogists Conducted Remarkable Tests
The marrelwas psycftfe fewer ef
Wed E. Foskett, a young machinist
of Orange, Mass., has attracted the
attention of Professor James of Har
vard and other leading members of
the Boston branch of the American
Society of Psychical Research, who
recently gave him tests on two days.
The first of the tests was held at the
home of Prescott F. Hall on a Sat
urday afternoon. Professor William
James and several well known physl
olans were there, and test conditions
as nearly perfect as possible were
made. Foskett was seated in the cen
ter of a room before a small table.
There he performed every feat of the
Hindoo faker and the Buddhist adept
On the table was an ordinary kero
sene lamp with a chimney and a flat
wick, a pan and several quarts of al
cohol. According to the reports of
those present, Foskett succeeded in
every test. The first test was made
with ordinary sulphur matches. Fos
kett lighted half a dozen, one after
the other, holding them with one hand
so close to the fingers of the other
that the flames curled around them.
He then lighted the lamp and held his
hands above the wick, while the
dames cnrled over them and the soot
completely blackened them.
From one of these tests to another
Foskett went, while the scientists
held their breath and watched every
motion, until he came to the climax.
In this he poured a quart of alcohol
into the basin, lighted it and then
washed his hands, bathing them for
nearly ten minutes in the burning
fluid, washing It up over his arms and
to tils face—literally bathing himself
In blazing alcohol. That completed
the tests for the first day. As soon as
they were finished the physicians
present examined Foskett, and they
could find not the slightest trace of a
burn or blister. Foskett told them
that the flames did not give him the
slightest sensation of burning that he
felt comfortably warm and pleasant
and nothing more.
The second tests were m«d« on the
next afternoon at the home of Pro
fessor James in Cambridge, Mass.,
and under the same conditions as the
day before. Considerable mystery Is
thrown about them. Mr. Hall said
they were so startling that he did net
care to discuss them until they had
been tried again. Another scientist
who was there said that Foskett per
formed all of his experiments of the
day before and then "absolutely and
"Ha seemed to dissolve Into thin air
as we watched him was gone forty
one seconds and then materialized. It
'was so startling that we, I am afraid,
lost sight of the test conditions, and
we have asked him to appear before
us again. It seems unbelievable, but
it certainly seemed so. We hardly
know what to think of it**
Professor James refuses to talk
about the tests.
According to those who were pres
ent, Fosket' seems In a passive state
during the tests, and he says he
thinks of nothing in particular. Those
who examined him discredit the hyp^
notic theory. They believe he ha*
some latent phychic force that never
has been studied. I
KNIVES FOR ROOSEVELT.
President's Hunting Outfit Had te Un
dergo Remarkable Tests.
A special outfit of four knives has
been made In Boston for President
Roosevelt to use while on his hunting
expedition in Africa In the spring.
There are two hunting knives—a heavy
brush knife, for cutting through dense
undergrowth, and a skinning knife
They tire made of the highest grade
American steel and are razor tempered
and razor edged.
The knives were ordered for the
president by United States Civil Serv
ice Commissioner John A. McIIhenny.
One specification was that they must
stand the test of cutting through at
one blow a quantity of beef and a beef
bone as large as the upper arm bone of
a man and that the one cut must go
clear through without turning the edge
of the knife and chipping the bone.
The knives have passed the test.

Shortly before the Christinas holt
days one year a Princeton undergrad

used up all the absences from recita

without good excuse would have
meant suspension. In a quandary, he
hit upon this solution: ne telegraphed

OFFICIAL LET OUT
Second to Be Dismissed Since
Peking, Feb. 8.—Shen 1% president
of the board of communications, and
three under secretaries of the board
were dismissed in disgrace.
Recent dispatches from Peking set
forth that Chen Pi had been lm-1
peached on charges of corruption. Thd
recent failure of the board of com
munications to float a domestic loan:
of $.\000,000 for the purpose of paying
the shareholders of the National Tele
graph system embarrassed the gov
ernment seriously and Chen Pi in De-j
cember began negotiations with Brit i
ish, French, German and Japanese
banks for this money. The terms im
posed were described as humiliating
to the central government.
Chen PI is the second high official
to be dismissed from office since the
death of the emperor and dowager
empress of China last November. His
dismissal follows that of Yuan Shi
Kai, a member of the grand council,
by about five weeks.
Chen Pi is a metropolitan graduate
of 1877 and he has held various pub
lic offices, tncluding the governorship
of Peking, since 1901.

that in addressing Mrs. Pinkham you are con
fiding your private ills to a woman—a woman whose ex
perience with .women's diseases covers twenty-five years.
The present Mrs. Pinkham, daughter-in-law of Lydia E.
Pinkham, was for years under her direction, and has ever
since her decease continued to advise women.
Many women suffer in silence and drift along from bad
to worse, knowing well that they ought to have immediate
assistance, but a natural modesty causes them to shrink
from exposing themselves to the questions and probable
examinations of even their family physician. Such ques
tioning and examination is unnecessary. Without cost
you can consult a woman whose knowledge from actual
experience is great.
MRS. PINKHAM'S STANDING INVITATION:
from any furmof female weakness
vited to promptly communicate with Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn,
Mass. All letters are received, opened, read and answered by
women. A woman can freely talk of her private illness
to a woman thus has been established this confidence
between Mrs. Pinkham and the women of America which
has never been broken. Never has she published a testi
monial or used a letter without the written consent of the
writer, and never has the company allowed these confi
dential letters to get out of their possession, as the hun
dreds of thousands of them in their files will attest.
Out of the vast volume of experience which Mrs. Pink
ham has to draw from, it is more than possible that she
has gained the very knowledge needed in your case.
She asks nothing in return except your good will, and her
advice has helped thousands. Surely any woman, rich or
poor, should be glad to take advantage of this generous
offer of assistance. Address Mrs. Pinkham, care of Lydia
E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn, Mass.
