WASHINGTON, July 17. A new
triuty betwfii the United State and
Japan kos Into effect, today, at
which tlino also new tiMli-s between
Japan and nearly all tli countries of
JCurope and kouic of the ri'iith Ameri
can rcpuldicB uIho KJ in' effect. It
is an effect of far reaching importance
In the relations between Japan and
the United States, aw it does away
with tliu treaty methods which have
been in voguu for nearly tiny years
and substitutes an entirely new meth
od of procedure. The same is true in
the relations of Japan with oilier
countries. Taken as a whole tho
many treaties whic h no into effect to
morrow place Japan on an entirely
new footing with the world at large
as she Is recognized for the llrst lime
as an equal in every respect.
Tha treaty with this country was
made November 22. JS'Ji, in WasUng
ton, between Secretary (Jreshain and
Minister Kureno, who tin n represent
ed Japan here. The changes it made
were so far reaching that it was deter
mined the treaty should not go into
operation until July 17, 2S1CJ.
Mr. Jutaro Koniurn. the present Ja
panese minister in Washington, was
Keen at the Japanese legation today
and gave an Interesting outline of the
more important features of this ar
rangement. He said:
The 17th of July marks the turning
point in tho diplomatic history not
inly of Japan, but of the oriental coun
tries in general. It will be the first
instance in which the western powers
have recognized the full sovereignty
of an oriental state. This action of
the enlightened nations of Knrope and
America shows that if any country is
ready to assume a full share In the
responsibility and affairs of the world
at large these old and enlightened pow
ers are reutry to admit such, a country
to full comity among nations. So we
regard the advent of this treaty a3
a very important step not only for
Japan, but for all the nations of the
The countries with which Japan haa
made new treaties are the United
States, England, Germany. France,
Russia. Austria. Italy, Spain, Portu
gal, Iiolglum, Holland, Denmark, Swe
den and Norway, Switzerland and Pe
ru. All of these go into effect today ex
cept those with France hnd Austria,
which are deferred until August 4.
With most of these countries Japan
had treaty relations before, but they
were crude and unsatisfactory.
To understand the change it is ne
cessary to look at the cystean under
which the old treaties existed. This
was essentially based on two princi
ples: First, that foreign residents in
Japan shall enjoy the provisions of
extraterritorialty, that is. they should
be amenable to the laws and juris
diction of the consul of their own
country and not to Japanese jurisdic
tion, and, second, that foreign resi
dents in Japan shall be confined to
certain open ports, outside of which
foreigners could not reside, own prop
erty or engage in trade. The result
was in effect about fifteen or sixteen
systems of courts in Japan for the
purpose of trying foreigners who com
mit offenses in Japan. Furthermore,
most of the powers claimed that Ja
panese laws were not binding upon
foreigners. For instance, take our
quarantine law. While it protected
us as against our own people, yet
there was no protection in the case
of an infected foreign ship. The only
exception to this refusal to recognize
Japanese law was the United States,
which recognized from the first the
binding force for the Japanese law.
One of the bad effects of this sys
tem was that foreign residents had
entire immunity from taxation. The
Japanese paid all the taxes. All of
this has now disappeared and foreign
ers are under the same provisions as
well as the same obligations as the
Japanese citizens, no more and no
less. The first step in the new system
Is to put an end to the old fiction of
extraterritorialty, by which foreign
citizens wer? judged by different stan
dards from Japanese.
The Story Wan Falsp.
MADRID, July 17. El Liberal, which
yesterday published a statement to the
effect that a deficit of 2.750,000 pesetas
had been discovered in the accounts of
the Northern Railway company due to
embezzlements, publishes a retraction
today, admitting that the story was
false and apologizing.

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 17. Up
to the present time there has been no
suggestion from any foreign power
that the United States should take ac
tion concerning the Transvaal. When
the recent cable dispatch from Pretoria
brought the first information that rep
resentations would be made to Wash
ington a rumor that sue1! representa
tions would come promptly met with
a positive denial that Germany was
acting in any capacity in connection
with the Transvaal difficulties. At the
British embassy it is said no instruc
tions of any kind relating to the
Transvaal have been received.

near give out. By tho time the train
left mtHt of tho men had caught up.
Wo got on th train and wero taken to

CHICAGO, July 18. Mayor Carter
II. Harrison today sent the following
letter to the committee in charge of
arrangements for the democratic meet
ing at the Auditorium, July 20:
W. F. Cooling, Esq., Chairman Com
mittee of Arrangements. Dear Sir:
Replying to your favor of the 14th
instant, in which you ask me to de
liver an address of welcome at the
Auditorium July 20, to the national
democratic cor'mittee. and a large
number of ot.hor prominent democrats
of America, I regret my inabiliay to
accept. In ordinary circumstances, I
should only be too glad, both as mayor
of the Chicago and as a democrat, to
welcome the national committee, or
any number of prominent democrats to
Chicago, the city in which the plat
form of 1890 was framed and in which
W. J. Bryan was elevated to his pres
ent leadership of the national democ
racy. I cannot but think, however, it
would be an absurdity to welcome
these distinguished men under the
auspices of a self-constituted commit
tee, whose personnel is too obscure
to be known in its fiome city. Had
this meeting been organized unuer the
direction of democrats of regular type
and known party sLeding it would
have afforded me great pleasure to be
present. In the existing circumstances,
while thanking you for the honor, I
must b'Sg leave to be excused. Re
"CARTER H. HARRISON."

lettr-i vas shown ex-Governor Altgeld

or looks at it that way. He has lost
a gr.lden opportunity. Should he come
to- the meeting and make a rousing

self at the head of the democratic
party of the state, but he has lost the
chttnee now. I'm sorry for It."
