Adds to Objections Against Interfer

Jefferson City, Mo., July 21. Gov
ernor Folk added to the objections ho
has made to tho power of a federal
court to hold up the action of a state
law until it has been found valid, in a
jeply to the Milwaukee speech of Jus
tice Brewer of tho United States su
premo court, In which Justice Brewer
criticised Missouri's executive for his
discontent with tho uctlons of federal
"The distinguished Justice, Judge
Brewer, of the United States supreme
court, whom I esteem most highly, in
an address at Milwaukee recently took
me to task for objecting to the prac
tlco of the federal courts of arbitra
rily suspending state statutes until
their validity can be passed upon,"
said Governor Folk. "Ho says: 'But
cuppose through such railroad laws
as Missouri passed the railroads actu
ally lose money in carrying passen
gers, will the state make good tho
losbos to them?' 1 will answer: Sup
pose the federal court, after many
ears of litigation, finds the rates rea-
i fcouablc and tho laws valid, will tho
' railroads make the loss good to tho
I people of Mlnsouri?
"We are not considering the ques
tion as whether a federal court can de
clare a s'ate statute unconstitutional.
If It does that, Its right to do so has
i been (Irmly established, but 1 question
' the right of a tederal court to enjoin

JAP EMBARGO ON COAL
Steamers Supplied With Only Suf

Vancouver, B. C. July 24. Accord
ing to British naval olllcors who ar
rived from the Orient on tho Empress
of China, the Japanese government
has placed a positive embargo on the
export of coal from Japnu.
Operators have been instructed to
load no coal for export and steamers
are supplied with only sufllclent quan
tity to complete the return voyage to
Japan. This is said to he the reason
why the Canadian Puclfte railroad,
which had several special shiploads of
coal ordered during the Canadian coal
strlko, received but one. It Is also
stated on tho best authority that tho
government has been Inquiring for
largo shipments of Australian and

tion which was responsible for tho
death of Hovhanes S. Tavshanjlan,
the wealthy Armenian rug man ot
Now York, according to Joe Bjlsh
klam, a prominent countryman of tho

a Chicago Armenian was tho leader
and directed the work of the society.
Tho Chicago society Is an offshoot

purpose of carrying out the Ideas of
tho revolutionists of Armcnln. Bjlsh
kiam declares tho seceders formed the

Speaking of the recent murder In
New York, Bjlshkiam said: "All ol
the plans of the organization are made

tice Agency With Systematic Plot
to Hang Moyer, Haywood and Petti
bone Witness McGcc Discharged.
Boise, Ida., July 24. Forsaking the
theory ol vengeance ns Orchard's mo
tive for the murder of lormer Gover
nor Stiunenherg, E. F. Richardson ur
gucd that Orchard was In the employ
of the Plnkerton Detective agency
when ho killed Steunonberg, and that
tho murder was a part of a conspiracy
to hang Haywood. Tnis sudden de
parture was lollowed by a tremendous
denunciation of Captain James Mc
Parland and the PInkertons and pas
sionate vituperation of Orchard. Gov
ernor Gooding of Idaho, Senator Bo
rah Governor Peabody of Colorado,
and, in tact, all who have acted on the
side of tho prosecution of Haywood,
came In for a share of the avalanche
of Richardson's peroration.
Richardson denounced and charged
tho Plnkerton Detective agency with
a systematic plot to secure the convic
tion of Moyer, Haywood and Petti
bone as a means to the desired exter- ,
initiation of tho Western Federation
Continuing his scathing denuncia
tion of Orchard, dropping the subject
lor a time to branch out upon some
other line of argument, but returning
ever to a new attack upon the con-
fesslng witness, Richardson declared
that none but this accused criminal I
had been brought to court to defame ,
the name of Haywood1 a man who
hod always led an exemplary life, and .
had always been an exemplary citizen,
proud of his family, proud of his
name, caring ever for the invalid wife .
who sat at his side during the trial.
Concluding his address, Mr. Rich
ardson said he left the case with all
confidence In the hands of the jury for
such determination as It saw lit.
Mr. Richardson was held in the
court room for some time after ad

held. The justice ruled that the evi
dence brought by tho prosecution was
insufficient to warrant him in holding
McGee. Orchard was on the stand
