JAPAN STEPS TO THE FRONT.
T!axr Treattw 1'lace iter on Now Foot
In r With the World.
Wabiiinoton, July is. A now treaty
between tho United States and Japan
went into effect to-day, nt which timo
nlso new treaties between Japan nnd
nearly all of the countries of Europe
and some of the South American re
publics nlso went into effect. It is an
ovont ot far reaching Importance in
the rotations between Jaoan aud tho
United Stntcs, as it docs away with
the treaty methods which havo been
In vogue for nearly fifty years and
substitutes nn entirely now method of
procedure. The same is truo in the
relations of Japan with tho countries
of Europe, nnd some of tho many now
treaties which go into effect place Ja
pan on nn entirely now footing with
tho world at large, as sho is recog
nized, for tho first time, as an equal
in cvory respect.
Tho treaty with this country was
mado November 22, lbDI, in Washing
ton between Secretary Greslintri and
Minister Kurenp, who then repre
sented Jnpan here. The changes It
mado tvero so far reaching that It was
determined tho treaty should not go
into opcintion until July 17, 1800.
Mr. Jutaro Komura, tho present
Jnpaucso minister in Washington,
gives nn interehtlng outline of tho
tuoro important features of this ar
rangement. Ho said:
"To understand tho change it is
neccssnry to look at tho system under
tho old treaties. This was essentially
based on two principles: First, that
foreign residents in Japan shall enjoy
tho privileges of extra-tcrrltoriallty,
that is, they should be amenable to tho
laws and jurisdiction of tho consul of
their own country and not to Japanese
jurisdiction; und, second, that foreign
residents In Japan shall be confined
to certain open ports, outside of which
foreigners could not rcsldo, own prop
erty or engage In trade. Tho result
was, in c fleet, about fifteen or sixteen
systems of courts iu Japan, for tho
purpose of trying foreigners who com
mit offenses in Japan. Furthermore,
most of the powers claimed that Jap
anese laws wcro not binding upon
foteigneis. For iMitauce, take our
quarantine law. While it protected
us ns ngainst our own people, yet
thero was no protection in the case of
an infected foreign ship. Tho only
exception to this refusal to recognize
Japanese laws was tho United States,
which recognized from tho first tho
binding force of tho Japanese law.
"Ono ot tho bad effects of this sys
tem was that foreign residents had en
tiro immunity from taxation. Tho
Japanese paid all tho taxes. All this
has now disappeared, and foreigners
havo the samo privileges as well us
tho samo obligations ns tho Japanese
citizens, no moro and no less. The
first step In the new system Is to put
nn end to the old Action of extra-tor-ritorlally
by which foreign citizens
wero judgod by different standard
"Tho second essential thing Is tho
opening of tho entire interior of Japan
to foroign residents nnd trade. Until
now there have been only flvo treaty
ports Yokohama, Nagasaki, Kobe,
Kakoduto nnd Nlgata. Iu those
places foreigners had boon ablo
to live, to purchase property
and to trade, but outside- of
thero thoy could not oven travol
without n special permit. These
flvo places oro an insignificant part of
Japan. Henceforth the cntiro interior
of tho empire, with its populous cities
nnd inviting fields of Industry is
thrown open to foreigners. Thoy
may live nnywhero, engage in any
kind of business nnd will bo assured
of tho samo protection to llfo and
property that is given to the Jap
Marshal Fatally Woundod.
KitruFiBHKH, Okla., July 18. About

City Marshal Hitchcock was shot
twice by John Brown, an ex-convict

to tho lockup the prlsonor snatched
tho officer's pistol and fired two shots.
One ball passed through tho marshal's

was arrested immediately and jailed,

The latest rumor of Ignnce Padcrew
ekl'B marringo had ns little foundation
as tho various reports of hiB engage
ment to the American women ho met
on hiB visit to this country three years
ago. His relations with tho Gorakl
family have long been well known. His
Invalid son lived with the Polish vio
linist and his wifo during tho years
that followed the death of his mother,
nnd he haB been their intimate friend,
nt times ranking his home with them
when in Frnncc.
When Mmo. Gorsltl nnd her husband
were divorced, thero was no change In
tho famous pianist's relations with the
family, nnd his son has lived with
Mmo. Gorskl recently, and her life has
been in a large measure devoted to tho
care of him. It Is not believed by nny
of tho pianist's friends In Now York
that he has been married secretly or
In any other way to Mmo. Gorskl, who
fs somewhat older than he. The rumor
of his engagement to n New York
woman was so persistently reported
three years ago that her father had to
mnko a formal denial of It, says tho
New York Sun.
As a matter of fact, the acquaintance
between the two was slight. The pian
ist has little more taste for society
than the average musician of his em
inence. His only nppearnnces in that
way during tho recent visit to London
