leaag sportsmen of the United State, In
cludl V Rome of the shooters who repre
seOt.u'the United Stale In Its recent con
test with Kngland. Among- those present
were Powers, Crosby and Hlrachy. The
high wind and bad sky Interfered with ths
snooting to a very great extent. Under the
conditions the scores which were made yes
terday are regarded as first class.
The entrance fee for the live bird event
was IX. As there were tweni-two par
ticipants, the total eotranoe feea were i'M.
This waa divided Into five moneys, the high
man to receive SO per cent, second 25, third

UNITED STATES MUST ACT
Buch it tha Opinion of Offioeri of American
TRADE WITH CHINA IS NOW AT STAKE
Report of Secretary ays that "elsore
of Manrharla Is Step la Tartl
tloa at Chlaa lalarlooa
NEW TORK. Oct. 1$. At the annual
meeting of the American Asiatic asso
ciation today President Webb in his ad
dress called attention to the completion of
the Pacific cable and the signing of the
new treaty with China. Both events, he
said, were of great benefit to the country.
In connection with the China situation he
said that the attitude of Some of the
European powers, Russia In particular,
should be at present a cause for much
solicitude, and he advised tha emphatlo
expression of views on this subject to the
The commercial situation, he said, was
generally disappointing, the political un
certainties In Japan tending to make mer
chants and financial interests cautious,
while In China political confusion com
bined wltb tbe advance in silver has made
mercantile venture too muoh of a lottery
for tbe progress of trade.
The report of the secretary, John Foord,
also laid emphasis on the Manchurlan sit
uation, stating that. In defllanee of agree
ment, the foreign administration of New
Chwang, with all Its Injurious consequences
to American trade, and the occupation by
Russia of the eastern provinces, were still
Rassla'a Demaads t'ajast.
"The nature of the demands formulated
as conditions precedent to withdrawal,"
the report went on to say, "suggests that
Ihey have been purpoaely made impossible
of acceptance In order to justify a contin
ued occupation. The report continues:
The time has evidently come for the gov
ernment and people of the United States
to recognise and accept the full measure
of their responsibility In dealing with this
Question That the substitution of Russia for
Chinese sovereignty In Manchuria simply
means the beginning of the partition of
the Chinese empire does not admit of
doubt; , that the L'nlted States has noth
ing to gain but very much to lose from
the development of China among the great
powers of Europe needs no demonstra
tion. The question Immediately before our
government is the preservation of an open
market for American products In Man
churia, and It has been intimated that so
long as our commercial rights there, se
cured by treaty with China, are respected
by the power In possession, we can have
no ground for effective protest. But the
Manchurlan market, existing or potential.
Important aa It Is. must not be reckoned as
constituting but a small part of the field
for the sale of our products presented by
the Chinese empire.
If the future of the greater market de
pends absolutely, as your committee be
lieves It does, on the process of the dis
memberment of that empire being per
emptorily arrested, and Russia being com
pelled to abide by the solemn stipulations
on this point, which she has no where made
so copiously as In Washington, then our
government Is face to face with a larger
and graver question than that of the se
curity of the open door for commerce In
Manchuria. The fact must be recognized
that If all these stipulations are to be die
regarded at the plessure or the caprice of
the power which offered them, thst power
must be deemed unworthy of further con
fidence or belief, and any assurances made
by It In regard to the freedom of Amer
ican trade In Manchuria must be consid
ered as worthless as those which preceded
In this connection the report held that
Vladivostok had". In defiance of assurances
of the Russian minister, become a closed
port. . , .
.. America Mast Hold Markets. .
"But beyond and above all considerations
affecting the present or the future of
American trade In Manchuria and In the
eighteen provinces In China south of the
great wall," the report continued, "is the
larger question of the position of the United
States as one of the great powers of the
Pacific with an Interest In the development
of its commerce; closer and more vital than
that of any other Industrial nation."
The acquisition of the Philippines and the
construction of the Isthmian canal would be
meaningless If the trade of Asia Is not to
figure largely In calculations for the future
commercial development of this country,
Mr.' Foord declared that this government
must act now with unmistakable decision
If Its Interests In esstern Asia ars ever to
be held worth action. He recommended
that these considerations be brought to the
attention of the government and also tha
vigorous prosecution of popular education
on the subject. To the condition of political
uncertainty and suspense due to the policy
of Russia In the far east, he attributed, in
conclusion, the protracted depression of the
American export trade with China.

ficers: President, 8llas D. Webb of New
Tork; vice presidents, Lowell Lincoln of

WOMAN III CLUB AXD CHARITY
The October meeting of the local chapter,
DaughtTS of the Amerlcsn Revolution, was
held at the home of Mrs. Samuel Reese on
Itonday afternoon, the attendance being
large. The early part of the meeting was
given over to final arrangements for the
entertainment of the coming state confer
ence, to be held in Omaha next week on
Monday and Tuesday. Monday will be
devoted to business, but Tuesday afternoon
Mrs. Charles Fairbanks of Indiana, presi
dent general of the national society, who
will be the guest of honor, will deliver an
address to which the public Is Invited. The
meetings will be held at Metropolitan club.
Tuesday evening the local chapter will give
a reception to the Sons and Daughters of
the American Revolution, the committee
having planned to make It a most elaborate
affair. It Is expected that the conference
will be well attended, there being six
chapters In the state, the Omaha, Lincoln.
Falrbury. Fremont, Ord and Beatrice
chapters. In addition to the president gen
eral ar.d the many prominent women of
the state, the conference la. to be honored
by the presence of a member of the na
tional board, Mrs. J. Heron Crosman of
New York, who will be the guest of Mrs.
S. D. Barkalow, Mrs. Fairbanks to be the
guest of Mrs. J. W. Griffith. Monday after
noon's meeting closed wltb a program tha
feature of which was a paper by Miss
Adams of the high school en "Columbus,"
October 11 having been the Uh anniversary
of hla landing.
Dr. W. O. Henry will address the Sunday
afternoon gospel meeting of the Young
Women's Christian association on "The
Holy Lands." All women afo Invited to the
meeting, which begins at 4:80 o'clock.
One day last week there were 1.200 people
at the rooms, and never a day passes but
they are taxed to accommodate the women
who come there for rest or lunch and
still one hears the question, "Does the
association really need a new building?"
It Is at auch times as Carnival week, the
holidays, when excursions are passing
through town and In fact all of the time
that Omaha needs some place where tran
acient aa well aa resident women may go
for such refreshment. Other cities have
adequate provision of this kind and Its lack
In Omaha, because of this. Is all the more
noticeable to the hundreds of women who
every year spend a few days or hours In
the city and go to the Young Women's
Christian association rooms.
The dally average In the lunch room Is
something over 800, but frequently the num
ber greatly exceeds that Last Thursday
737 women were served at noon and 30 at
supper. While the rooms are largely self
supporting, the meals are served at a rate
so low that It only covers the expense, the
services of the women who do the serving
being given to the association, different
members taking turns each week. There,
are few cities that can boast of a better
conducted association than Omaha, but
there are also few that have as cramped
quarters and poor facilities with which to
meet what la demanded of them In this line.
All members of the association are In
vited to a gymnasium rally Monday evening
at t o'clock.
The noon meetings at the factories, under
the leadership of the extension secretary,
have begun for the winter.
At a well attended meeting Monday after
noon at St. Catherine'a academy, the Home
Queens' Circle was reorganised, Mrs. A.
Schall being re-elected preeldent; Mrs. Wil
liam Haydcn, vice president; Mrs. A. C. P.
Farrell, secretary, and iirs.. John Bourke,
treasurer. Following thai election arrange
ments were completed for a Hallowe'en en
tertainment to be held, Friday evening,
October SO, in the hall oh the seventh floor
of The Bee building. Mrs. K. McXamara
and Mrs. Mulvlhlll were later elected as
chairman and assistant1 of the entertain
ment committee. The first entertainment
announced will be Shakespearean readlnga
by Mrs. E. M. Conner and Mrs. Teresa
Merges, October SO.
