urged -he contending parties to cease
strife in the interests of the public
welfare, the miners through the pres
ident of their union expressed a wfll
lajraess to submit differences to arbi
tration of a tribunal to be named by
President Roosevelt and to enter into
an agreement to abide by terms fixed
by the arbitration board for a period
.of from one to five years, and the
employers, through the presidents of
the railroad and ccal companies and
a leading independent mine owner,
squarely refused arbitration, denounc

TURNS DOWN THE JAPANESE.
Chicago Judge Vainly Searches for
Precedent to Naturalize Japanese.
CHICAGO, Oct. 4. After vainly
searching for some legal precedent
that would justify a different decision
Judge Carter has refused to grant
naturalisation papers to Lee Guy
Dean, a Japanese who made applica.
tion with a view to becoming a citizen
of the United States.
"The statute on naturalization."
said Judge Carter, "reads that any
free white man. or any native of Af
rica, or any alien of African descent,
may be naturalized, but that does not
apply to Mongolians, and a Japanese
is surely a Mongolian.
The only decision bearing directly
on the case which Judge Carter could
find was cue mace bv a Massachusetts
court, and that was to the effect that
an application from such a course
could not be granted.
BEATRICE, Nelx, Oct. 5. The to
