An Associated Press cablegram
from Paris says: "M Kurino, tho
JapaneBo minister, in an interview to
day is quoted as making tho impor
tant statemont that the series of
treaties between Groat Britain,
Franco, Russia and Japan, guaran
teeing tho territorial status quo in
tho far oast, implied an agreement
to provent other countries from ac
quiring territory thoro. Minister
Kurino denied that the Franco-Japanese,
entente was in any way aimed
at the. United States, adding: 'Japan
in spite of the San Francisco inci
dent, has always been most sympa
thetic to tho United States because
sho was the first to treat tho Japar
nose people ,on a footing of equality.
If Japan could obtain advantages
from an understanding with the
Unitod States it is entirely probable
that the government at Tokio would
not hesitate to negotiate with Wash
ington.' M. Kurino said that as Ger
many had no possessions in the far
east, Klao Chou being simply leased
Chineso ground, a treaty with her
similar to tho one between Japan
and France would be useless."
The Iowa supreme court has held
inthe case of Bergstrom vs. the
Rhode Island Railroad company that
the goneral public has a right to
suppose that a baggagomaster is tho
proper person to determino In what
manner a trunic should be shipped
and that its acceptance by him as
' baggage incurs a liability on the
railroad company. Tho supreme
court polntB out tho universal cus
tom of railroads in carrying com
mercial travelers' "sample" trunks
as baggage to show that they do
not limit baggage to "personal ef
fects." If a bacgagomaster receives
for transportation articles not ordi
narily regarded as "personal effects"
the carrier will be bound by his acts
unless the person Is advised that he
is exceeding his authority in check
ing the trunks as "baggage."
