FAILEB TO INTEREST JAPAN
Strike on Hawaiian Islands Work of
Toklo , June 17. The report that
the Japanese of Hawaii had appealed
to Toklo charging violation of treaty
rights as an outcome of the strike
agitation in the islands , is based upon
the fact that one of the agitators ar
riving at Honolulu , sent' a cablegram
to n brother living In Japan request
ing him to endeavor to gain the inter
cession of the government in his be
half. In spite of the fact that ho
knew it was useless the brother'con
veyed the appeal to the government.
A dispatch received hero yesterday
from the Japanese consul at Honolulu
says the strike situation is improving
and that all the men in two districts
have returned to work. The strike ,
the consul says , is a rise of agitation
on the part of Japanese anarchists ,
the worst element among the Japan
ese , who have been trying to per
suade all their countrymen to Join
a union. They claim , the dispatch fur
ther asserts , that they would be able
to increase wages but in reality their
purpose was to collect money.

speaks highly ot the attitude of the
Prosperous Builder Shoots Wife.

man led a party to his home , where
Mrs. Westervolt was found lying dead

Annie Lee Owen , official stenographer
In the police investigation , was slug

Stenographic notes , representing testi

were stolen by the assailant who es
caped. Miss Owen was found forty
minutes later by Hugh L. Martin , an
attorney whoso office is In the same'
suite. She was lying on the floor
unconscious and he supposed she was
dead. The police commislsoner , Thos.
il. Marks , was called , and she regain
ed consciousness for ri > tlmo but re
lapsed and was taken to the hospital.
Captain Walter Whlttsett , Inspec
tor Edward Boyle and several detec
tives searched the office rooms and
soon separated to hunt the girl's as
sailant. The investigation which has
been In progress for two weeks has
brought to light much disorderly sa
loon business and alleged collusion
by high police officials. Police Com
missioner Marks , under whose direction -
tion the inquiry is being made , said :
"I can only suppose that this is a
move of the system which this police
investigation has , been exposing. It
shows more desperation than wo sup
posed was possible. Her stenographic
notes were not very valuable for we
have heard the testimony and a man
could have stolen the notes from here
without such brutality. "
DENVER WINSGOLF TROPHY
Secures the Tom Morris Memorial
Prize on Golf.
Chicago , June 17. From unofficial
reports received last night It appears
that the Denver Country club of Den
ver , Colo. , has a claim on the Tom
Morris memorial trophy , for whjch the
first annual competition took place
yesterday on the links of thd Western
Golf association. The Denver players
report a score of 16 down on par.
Close behind them came the Annan-
dale Country club of Pasadena , Calif. ,
with a score of 17 down. The Inver
ness club of Toledo , Ohio , led by
Harold Webster , scored 22 ; the Memphis -
phis , Tenn. , Country club , 23 ; the Ex-
more club of Highland Park , 111. , 25 ,
and the Oakmont club of Plttsburg ,
Pa. , 36. Par for the Denver Country
club course is 75 % and the distance
is 6,132 yards.

nated to the Western Golf association
by Peter Lawson of Glasgow , Scot
land , in memory of Tom Morris , who
for thirty-five years was a professional
on the noted Standrows links and who
played the game seventy-five years ,
being five times the British champion.
The conditions of the contest were
made such as to give the second rate
players a chance and the annual tro
phy event is regarded as the most
novel introduced in American golf.

AGAINST DUTY ON
SENATOR DROWN OF NEBRASKA
MAKES STRONG ARGUMENT.
COMMITTEE'S POSITION WRONG
Denounces Proposition to Increase the
Rate Fixed by the House on Print
Paper as Inexcusable and Indefens
Washington , Juno 17. After dlspds-
Ing of a number of disputed para
graphs In the tariff bill , the senate to
day began the consideration of- the
print paper and wood pulp provisions.
The subject was introduced by Sen
ator Aldrlch , who presented the fi
nance committee amendment Increas
ing the duty on print paper froth one-
tenth to two-tenths of a cent per pound
and which ho said equalled $4 a ton.
Senator Brown of Nebraska spoke
on the subject. Offering an amend
ment to place print paper on the free
list , Mr. Brown declared that the pa
per Industry did not need the protec
tion of a duty. "At the risk of creat
ing a panic , " ho said , ho would read
from President Roosevelt's message to
congress in response to which the
house had undertaken to investigate
the wood pulp and paper business. He
then proceeded to read from the mes
sage receiving careful attention.
Denouncing as indefensible any
as Inexcusable and Indefensible any
proposition of the finance committee
to Increase the low rate fixed by the
house bill for tie ) protection of the
print * paper Industry , Senator Brown
declared that that industry needs no
protection. These paper mills , he in
sisted , have an advantage over every
foreign print mill whether they are in
Scandinavia , Germany or Canada.
"Canada is our only competitor in
this market , " said Mr. Brown. "The
seas and the Inferior product of other
countries than Canada protect the
mills of the United States against all
competition worth mentioning.
"This question depends on the cost
of production at home and abroad. If
foreigners can manufacture print
paper for less than it costs Americans
that amendment of the finance com
mittee might find Justification. If the
fact be , as I shall prove it is , that
print paper can be made and Is being
made at less cost hero than elsewhere ,
then any duty in any amount is wholly
wrong in principle and utterly unen
durable and extortionate in practice.
"Canada had an investigation into
the subject in 1901. The testimony In
that Investigation showed that the
American mills had an advantage of
J5 per ton in the cost of production
of print paper.
"Following that report the manufac
turers of Canada petitioned their gov
ernment to continue the 25 per cent
advalorem duty on paper Importations.
"The statement of the Booth mills
tn Canada snows the cost of produc
tion to bo $34.11 per ton. The testi
mony before the house committee
shows the cost per- ton of the print
paper made by the International Paper
company , of the United States to be
527.74. Another significant fact shown
in the hearings before the house com
mittee is that western publishers testi
fied that they bought paper from the
Booth mills in Canada and paid the
duty and then got it for less than they
could have purchased it from the
"Our consul In the province of
Quebec reported that the laborers In
the Canadian mills received as' high
If not higher wages than those in
American mills. It is undisputed by
the testimony taken by this commit
tee that many of the workmen in the
Canadian mills are American citizens
and receive higher wages than when
In the United'States. "
In fifty-nine news print paper mills
In this country he said there are 19-
449 employes , while the newspapers
and periodicals using their output em
ploy 145,638 persons. Every one of
these newspaper employes ho said Is
affected by the Increase in rate of
paper which has taken place In the
last few years. The print paper mills
In 1908 had an annual pay roll of
110,330,632 , while the pay roll of the
newspapers and periodicals in 1905 was
"Tho testimony before the house
committee , " said Mr , Brown , "shows
that the International Paper company
Itself went Into Canada and purchased
A large amount of print paper to keep
the American publishers from buying
It ana this they parceled out among
their foreign customers. Because of
this purchase of foreign paper the
trust had too great a supply on hand
and was compelled to shut down
twenty-four paper machines , while the
surplus was being consumed in Ameri
can presses. And the protected labor
ers on these twenty-four machines
were compelled to find other Jobs. "
Senator Brown entered into a discus
sion of paper.making and the progress
that has been made In the manufac
ture since the discovery that it could
bo made from wood. The Industry has
grown and prospered , he said , until
today American mills produce more
than 1,200,000 tons of print paper an
nually and are able to supply the
Ground wood pulp Is made very
largely from the spruce tree with a
limited amount from the hemlock
tree , he said. The spruce is already
Dearly exhausted In the United States.
Science has not yet discovered any
other tree which may bo entlsfactoi lly
converted Into pulp by the grinding
process. The domestic consumption
oC print paper amounts to 1,200,000
tons annually. The total consumption
of spruce wood for paper purposes In
the United States amounts to 2,700-
000 cords per annum. Ono third of
this amount comes from Canada , the
remainder from American forests. The
government forest service estimates
that there are 15,000,000 of acres of
spruce forests cast of the Rocky moun
tains. The spruce on the Pacific coast
Is more valuable for lumber and Is
used only in limited quantities for
paper making. Computing the exhaustIng -
Ing of these spruce forests on the
basis of present consumption for
paper purposes , Forester Plnchot esti
mates they will be exhausted as fol
Maine's In twenty-eight years ; Now
Hampshire in twenty-five years ; Ver
mont In eleven years , and Now York
In eight years. He also estimates that
Minnesota with her great forests of
black spruce cannot continue to sup
ply her present output and have any
left nt the end of nine years. Mr.
Plnchot also testifies that It will bo
Impossible to avoid the exhaustion

to 100 years to reach a diameter of ten
Senator Brown drew the following
conclusion at the end of his argu
"Our pulp wood supply Is nearly ex
"Tho pulp wood supply of Canada Is
apparently Inexhaustible. ,
"Free pulp would tend to conserve
our pulp wood.
"Tho production cost of print paper
Is less In the United States than it is
"A ton of news print paper costs In
Canada $24.54 to manufacture ; In the
United States it costs $27.74 per tpn.
"The print paper market is controll

SPECULATION IN SECURITIES
Committee Appointed by Governor
Hughes Makes Report.
Now York , Juno 17. The report of
: he committee appointed by Governor
Hughes to investigate speculation in
securities and commodities and the or
ganizations used in dealings therein
lias been made public. The New York
stock , tie ? Consolidated stock , the Cot
ton , the Produce , the Coffee , the Mer
cantile and the Metal exchanges and
: Jie Curb market were thoroughly In
vestigated and recommendations look
ing to Improvement of existing condi
tions were made at length by the
committee. The most drastic finding
s that affecting the Mercantile and
Metal exchanges , as follows : "Under
present conditions , we are of the opln-
.on that the Mercantile and Metal ex
changes do actual harm to producers
ind consumers , and that their char
ters should , be repealed. "
Concerning speculation in general ,
: he committee declares that it may be
wholly legitimate , pure gambling , or
something partaking of the qualities
Df both , that in some form it Is a nec
essary incident of productive opera-
: Ions ; that It tends to steady prices
md that for the merchant or manu
facturer the speculator performs a
service .which has the effect of insur-
nice. "In law , " says the report , "spec-
ilatlon becomes gambling when the
.radlng which it involves does not
cad , and is not Intended to lead , to
he actual passing from hand to hand
) f the property that Is dealt In.
"The rules of all the exchanges for-
) ld gambling as defined by this opln-
on ; but they make so easy a technical
lellvery of the property contracted
'or ' , that the practical effect of much
[ peculation , in point of fqrm legltl-
nate , Is not greatly different from that
> f gambling. "
The committee makes no present-
nent against short selling , but do-
slares the tendency of such selling is
o steady prices. It is recommended
hat the minimum margin should be
10 per cent and strong disapproval is
( xpressed of branch brokerage offices

sr improper means to Induce specula-
The committee closes with a review
if the experience of Germany in .re-
itrictlng exchanges and points out the
mfavorable results of the German leg-
station. There Is an addendum con
cerning the complaint of the New
fork Bank Note company that the
Stock Exchange prevents any co'm-
> any except the American Bank Note
ompany from engraving any securl-
ies dealt in on that exchange. After
t discussion of this complaint , and the
inswor of the Stock Exchange thereto
he committee says "it would seem
hat other considerations than the
; oodness of the work and carefulness
n guarding the plates are here opera-
ive , and that the Stock Exchange haslet
lot rid Itself of the evils of monopoly. "
