tain Japanese ononis of the Japanese gov

DERNBURG IS A "HUSTLER"
First Speech of German Colonial Min
ister Shorrs that He Means
BERLIN, Nov. 17. (Special.) - Tho
kaiser's new colonial minister, Herr Bern
hard Dernburg, who is expected to become
the Joseph Chamberlain of" Germany, has
made his first public utterance In a speech
at Halle. The atmosphere of "hustle,"
which It freely breathes, bears out the
predictions ma do nt the time of his ap
pointment that Germany's colonial administration-
under the American trained
banker's regime Is forthwith to be rid of
Inefficient bureaucratic methods, and to bo
characterized by a spirit of Intelligent ag
gressiveness. Her Dernburg Intimates that he will
summon to the task of rejuvenating Ger
many a drooping colonies "men schooled In
the determined art of standing up In the
world and going ahead." He calls upon
the country to abandon tho theory thst
Germany's) twenty-two years of colonial ef

and to Join with him In making the Father

"appendix" to the empire, but thriving out

Hcrr Dernburg Is keeping his own coun
sel regarding his Bpcclllc Ideas for colonial

made the kaiser's colonies hitherto merely

JAPANESE TRADE-IN DANGER
London Time Thlnka jn franclsco
Incident Will Hve Bad
LONDON, Nov. 17.-(SpeclsI.)-The Lon
don 'Times gives warning that American
trade in Japan is In danger. Editorially,
the Times says:
"The Japanese cannot be expected to carry
beyond a. certain point their allowance for
the municipal difficulties, of another nation.
If California persists, the Japanese govern
ment and people will come to the conclu-
j sion that, the treaty obligations are being
j set aside by tiie I'nlted 8tatea and that
Japanese subjects are being treated with
gross Indignity. Japan Is In a position to
I retaliate. It can say If Japanese ace not
j good enough to mix with Americans,, then
I Americans are not good enough to mix
j with Japanese. The day it eaya that, a
I great and growing branch of American
commerce is likely to go by the board. A
i Chinese boycott on no great scale waa
I found extremely Inconvenient. A Japanese
I boycott will be very much moro serious.
j Us effects would be very heavily felt by the
offending state, because San Francisco Is
the center of a great trade with the cast
and the home port for important lines of
American steamers. It is not always that
the offender bears the brunt of the mis
chief, and perhaps in the fact, that in this
case he will do so lies the best hope of a
settlement of the question."

and her last death cry echoed over tl.e
lake, there was a wttness to oil that, and
she will be here to tell you about it."

The largest single undertaking by one
road Is the construction uf the Milwaukee
read from Dakota to the coast, with Seattle
as Its western terminus. The scenery along
the new route means It must become one of
the most popular routes In the'eountrty for
transcontinental travel. The beautiful Yel

one cf the points of interest. The Rocky

I Tho Milwaukee officials are hot alone In
their anxiety to have a line to the roast,
for that Is what is thought to be the de-
sign of the Burlington in Its contemplated
line from Salt Lake to Guernsey, and thHt
Is thought to be the ultimate deslm of the
Northwestern, which is working to the
west each year. They realize that a rail
road without a connection of that kind by
which it can protect Itself can have llttl
chance of holding Its ow n when the Pan-.
ama canal Is completed. The, directors

Where the next Jump by one of theea
railroad giants will be no on stems to'
, know. It Is known that men of two or
j three different roads are surveying from
Denver to the north, and that numerous
'. surveying parties are in Wyoming south
i of tho Yellowstone, but where Hill and
i Harrlmon and Gould will Jump to n.-xt
', spring is a guess.
These men are the central figures In the
i west and one hears of Hill building that
: road, and Clark building this one, and
Harriman fighting Hill for control of tills
nnd that strategical point. Each have
seen the possibilities of the west and are
now spending all tne millions they ,can '
get their hands on to have the best load
for the handling of tho wond.-rtul tonnage
which tbe west Is producing yearly and
which la Increasing yearly. When Harri
man was asked if he had confidence in
the west und saw any great future there,
he replied, "Certainly I believe In 'tho
west, and it is there my work haa been
