WASHINGTON, Jun . That the Japa

ntared Into an alllanoa which ha. the
earmarks of a oonaplracy. with the over
throw of the present ministry In Jnran
and the annulment of the clause In the
Immigration bill excluding Japanese coolie
labor from continental United States as
the ultimata objects, was learned authori
tatively here today. The preliminary steps
In thla achenU, It Is said, will be to Induce
the Toklo government to recall Viscount
Aokl, the Japanese ambassador to the
United States, and to demand an apology
and perhaps an indemnity from this gov
ernment for the alleged acta of violence
against Japanese subjects residing In Ban
With this end In view representatives of
tha faction hostile to the Salonjl ministry
have been In Washington to consult with
the Japanese ambassador and tha. State
department officials regarding the objec
tionable clause tn the Immigration bill, the
California school question and the recent
riot In Ban Francisco. The report which
they have sent to Toklo, it Is alleged, will
form the basis of a systematic campaign
to bring about antl-Amorlcan demonstra
tion In Japan and to force Foreign Minis
ter Hayaahl. If possible, to demand In
demnity and an apology on account of the
Japanese disturbances In San Francisco.

REVISION OF SHERMAN LAW
New AuttTruat Statute
NEW YORK. June - A special to th
Herald from Washington say: .
President Roosevelt has authorised th
publication of a letter received by him
from John R. Dos Passos, a lawyer, of
New York City, who recommends an ex
tensive revision of the Sherman anti-trust
law to the end that it may dlscrlmlnatoly
apply to Injurious combinations, but not
to railroad. Th end which Mr. Do
Passos seeks' to attain I th elimination
of politic from th question of govern
mental restriction of trusts and rallroada.
lie submitted to th president a draft of
a bill which meet hi view.
Mr. Do Passos te working along a line
to which th president ha given much
thought and which he will probably ask
the next congress to deal with. Th presi
dent believes that the government' func
tion of railroad regulator should be exer
cised entirely through Interstate commerce
laws. He would much rather proceed
against railroad . under Interstate com-
merce laws than under th Sherman anti-
trust law. In presenting to th president
his bill Mr. Dos Passos aaya:
"A law to be efficacious must cover th
following points: First, the destruction of
existing pernicious ' combinations; second,
the punishment of fnture organisers and
officer of uch combination; third, the
forfeiture of the property embraced inS.and ,acn waB , cn,rs, of a com.
crlmlnal and civil remedloa. prwrenttv and
President Roosevelt Is much Interestel
In th Idea submitted to him by Mr. Do
Passos. He has received many other Bug
gestlons from men prominent In the busi
ness world on the same subject. Senator
Beverklge of Indiana, In his magaxlne de
bate with Mr. Bryan, recently advocated
a thorough overhauling of the Sherman
"In my Judgment, tha whole subject of
trusts must be bodily carried out of the
field of politics and placed In the domain
of pure legislation," ay Mr. Dos Passos
tn his letter. "You are the only Individual
who can accomplish this removal. Your
courage. Independence, knowledge and pa
triotism naturally make' yon a dictator In
this particular field. A rare opportunity
la thus presented to you. Within the limits
of reason, both parties will follow you.
On the other side, In the hands of poli
ticians the question will receive neither
proper nor intelligent treatment."
Th distinctive features of and reason
for the draft of a law proposed by Mf.
Dos Passos are given' by him a follows:
"First, the act, contract of combination
must be Injurious to the public. This
meet an objection to the Sherman law,
which assails all commercial combina
tion, whether reasonable or unreasonable.
"Second, the act, contract or combina
tion must be passed upon by a Jury. Thl
I where the subject legitimately belong.
It primarily should be left with th people
to decide whether certain acts are In
jurious to their welfare or not. Hereto
fore these questions have been left to the
Judges. It was too .great a burden for th
Judiciary, It ha created confusion and in
consistencies tn th decision a

ever been conceived. It should b con
fided to the twelve disciples -of liberty
and progress to ay whether th particu

true Interest of the community! whether
trade- or' commerce are Injuriously af
fected. We oart rest assured that th ques
tion wlll'be safe tn their hands. .Th Jury
system has never been oppreslva It ha
never yet checked true business dsvelop

tified with every step tn our progress.

any cttlsen residing In th district where
the offense Is committed.-,
-"Sixth Provision Is made for protecting

"Seventh It eliminate railroad corpora
tions from th effects of the law. '
"Finally, Imitating that unrivaled y

cifically defined; but It Is generally pro
vided that -all acts, combination, etc.,
agalnat Interstate trad or oommerc In

Judge to decide whether they fall within
