AsiocUtion Birongly Endsrsed by the High

HANKOW, China, Deo. IS. (Special
Coi rtspondence.) Before I bad finished my
work In Japan, the Japanese national com
mune of tin- Young Men's Christian asso
ciation tilled me to visit Dalny, Port Ar
lnur and Ne Chwang, or Ylng Kow, In
Lluotung peninsula and Corea. It was
a very difficult thing to get Into these
places, as the whole peninsula uf Llaotung
.a.i under tho luilltaiy control ot th
Japanese arny and navy. Only such per
sons as nc suo.e suspicion, or had re
liable endorsement, were permitted to visit
any part ot tne peninsula. Passports were
secured for me trom the War department
in Toklo with but little difficulty, as I
represented the Young Men Christian as
sociatlon, which did and does now such a
splendid work In tiie Japanese army. This
work has wonderfully won the favor of
the emperor of Japan, the officers and
the men of the army and the navy every
October 13, 1906, I started for Dalny and
passed almost In sight of the place where
Admiral Togo destroyed the ltussian Baltic
fleet. Landed at Dalny November 2, 1906.
The day was cold and distressingly dusty.
I went to the Young Men's Christian asso
ciation rooms, met the native general sec
retary, who took me In charge, and I was
soon quartered In one of the Urge build
ings constructed by the Russians. By
special Invitation I attended a reception
and banquet the next day in the large ad
ministration building on the birthday of
the emperor of Japan. A large company
of notable persons was present. I sat be
tween a major of the British army and a
colonel ot the Japanese army. When !
Japanese national hymn was played all
present rose and bowed with uncovered
heads as If In prayer until It was finished.
It waa very Impressive. Wine and other
liquors were poured Into two glasses by
our plates and water In a third. When it
was proposed to drink to the emperor's
health, all present grasped the glasses
with the wine and other liquors and held
them up with outstretched arms, then to
their lips and, with posnlbly several excep
tions, drank. I took the glass of water,
held it up and then drank It This act
was done by all present with a hearty
hurrah! The Japanese colonel by my side
lifted up the glass of wine, put it to his
lips, but did not drink. He was a devoted
Christian man and strictly temperate. He
turned around quickly and grasped my
hand In approval of my act. He was one
of the strongest Y'oung Men's Christian
association men in the Japanese army. We
at once changed cards of address.
Services at Port Arthur.
After having done all I could In Dalny
I went to' Port Arthur by rail. A whole
section of the car was given to me. As
soon as I arrived at Port Arthur and quar
tered in my hotel I reported to the Young
Men's Christian association headquarters
in a. very commodious and well located
building; met the native Japanese general
secretary, Mr. A. Mlnato. Had frequent
Interviews with him about his work. I
attended the Sunday afternoon meeting.
The building was filled with soldiers and
sailors. The first part of the meeting was
give to muslo and the graphophone, which
were very much appreciated by the men.
The gospel meeting which followed Was
crowded. The Japanese general secretary
made a telling gospel address, which waa
listened to with marked attention. After
the gospel address the secretary offered a
copy of the Book of Matthew In Japa
nese to any of the soldiers and sailors that
wanted it. All of them pressed forward,
reaching out their hands to receive It.
It was a sight worth seeing.
I was Introduced to a number of Japa
nese offlclals, all of whom regarded the
Young Men's Christian association work
with great favor. At Port Arthur, wlU the
secretary of the association, I witnessed
the display of the soldiers and sailors in
rommemoratlng the first anniversary of the
occupation by the Japanese of 203 Meter
hill. There were at least 10,000 soldiers
and sailors, a splendid body of men, and
their movements were fine.
Where the Rattle Rased.
In the afternoon we went to the top of
203-Meter hill, a trip long to be remem
bered. All along the way there were plain
evidences of a mighty struggle. When we
reached the top it was evident that this
hill was the key to the situation. With
this hill the Russians could hold out
against any attack of the Japanese. With
out this hill the Russians were at the
mercy of the Japanese. Next day, with a
permit, I went alone to the top of Golden
hill, an impregnable fortress against any
attack from the ocean side. Port Arthur
town and Inside harbor are perfectly safe
behind It. From Golden hill and 203-Meter
hill, I'ort Arthur and every port of the
country about are plainly visible.
Among others I was introduced to Gen-

I returned to Dalny by rail and after
a stop of one day started for New Chwang,
or Ylng Kow, far up In the Llaotung
peninsula on the LJao river. Bpent a whole
day and night on the trip. The weather
was very cold and there was no Are in

the association building and explained In
full all that was done. New Chwang is
the point where the Japanese army Young
Men's Christian association work was first
tested and approved under the Inspection
of Japanese army officers. Afterward it
was extended to every available part of
the army. I stayed several days at New

spoke through an Interpreter. There were
at least 200 soldiers and sailors present, who
gave the most respectful attention. Tills
finished up my trip to the Japanese Army
Young Men's Christian association work on
the Llaotung peninsula. It is impossible in
an article like this to tell any considerable
part of what was done or to make mention
of the parties with whom I held confer
ence. During all my stay In Dalny and
Port Arthur I was the guest of the Japanese
government and all my hotel bills and
transportation were provided for by It,
Dalny and Port Arthnr.
Dalny (renamed by the Japanese Tairen,
the old Chinese name) is a large lace, a
seaport, almost surrounded by water. It
may be divided into three parts: first, the
Chinese and Japanese city; second, the
Russian city, of splendid public and private
buildings, with well-improved streets and
pavements, constructed by the Russian
government at a tremendous cost, and
third, the great docks. I did not visit them.
The Russians tried to burn-down some of
the buildings they had constructed, but
with the exception of the roofs and wood
trimmings In the buildings, they were inde
structible by fire or they were built of well-
burned brick. The Japanese occupy all of
these buildings for offices, residences and
barracks for soldiers.
Port Arthur may be divided into two
distinct parts. First, the port town, close
to the entrance of the harbor; consists of
large government buildings, hotels, stores,
residences of Chinese and Japanese citizens
and barracks for soldiers. Also the navy
yard and its great machine shops, as well
as the docks for loading and unloading
ships. All these are close behind Golden
Hill and the hill on the opposite side of the
entrance to the harbor and are eerfectly j
protected by them from any ocean attack.
Far off to the right, as you face the ocean
entrance to the harbor from within. Is a
town of large public and private buildings,
hotels, residences, storehouses, stores, sol
diers' barracks, etc., built mostly by the
Russians. A number ot very large buildings
are In an unfinished condition. This' town
Is on the road to 203 Meter Hill, and Is
wholly distinct from the other town. Far
on the other side of Port Arthur proper is
China town. Port Arthur harbor can be
deepened and Indefinitely extended east and
west of the entrance from the ocean and
the navy yard can be accordingly enlarged.
Three large Ironclad Russian vessels have
been raised and are now floating at the
navy yard undergoing repairs. They are yet
all covered with mud. From five to ten
war vessels are yet In a sunken condition
tn the harbor and its entrance.

There has been nothing startling in the
way of canned goods offerings during the
past week. Many of the Indiana packers
have thought it advisable to withdraw on
future tomatoes. The market Is firm at
the prices quoted last week. In regard to
spot tomatoes there Is not much change to
report. California standards have been
moved up a tritle and are moving at the
advanced price. With all the force that
haa been put behind this deal to corner
the tomato market and maintain the price,
some well-posted parties are strongly of
the opinion that they will not ultimately
succeed in their efforts. While they may
be able to market a few of their goods
at present prices the margin for both re

have lost all interest In tomatoes, when
it comes to additional purchases. It Is
learned too, on good authority, that ths
advance made in the east recently was the
result of ths syndicate's buying to a very
large extent, and in order to establish the
market they have taken a very large
amount of tomatoes. If they do make this
a successful undertaking It will be probably

Hhoe p. res remain unchanged, and

but this is said to be on account of the
poor quality of the present offerings.
Manufacturers have recently held a meet

impossibility of continuing the manufacture
of shoes without the maintenance of full

able to Kay whether tney feel sure prices
