nnd HartlnsT Its Omnnn
Interests. I
After September M. say local grain men,
no grain will bo shipped over the North
western road from Omaha to St. Paul, Uu
Inth and other point in that part of the
country. And evidently the Northwestern
doe not want the grain, judging from Ita
recent action.
The road has given notice to the. Inter
state Commerce commission that, effective
September 28, It will abolish the payment
of elevation allowance of i-ccnt per 1"0
pounds on grain, now paid for unloading
and loading at Omaha, South Omaha,
Council Bluffs, Fremont and Missouri Val
ley, grain destined to St. Pnul, Duluth and
other pointa which takes the same rates on
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha road. This will cuuae the grain men
to ahlp by the Burlington. Great Western
and other roads, which still pay the eleva
tion allowance.
Due to another peculiar attitude of the
Northwestern, that road Is at present haul
ing out of Omaha no grain which originates
In Iowa, Early In the summer it agreed
with the other roads to protect the propor
tionals on Iowa grain out of Oniuha, but
It later decided It wouldn't do so. The road
takes the attitude of not wishing to take
Iowa grain out of Omaha, though It Is
willing to bring It In. This does not hurt
the Omaha grain market, as the other
roads maintain the proportionals.
Antics of Illinois Central.
The Illinois Central also has Just done a
thlngvhleh the grain dealers are at a loss
to understand, for It apparently works to
the disadvantage of the road. Yet the
grain men smile at It complacently, for tho
Omaha market Is unhurnied. The road ha
Just announced a -cont transfor allowance
t St. Louis on grain In all directions, "go
ing one better'' than the Cotton Belt and
other lines, which apply tho allowance only
n grain to certain territory.
The effect will be to loso for the Illinois
Central to the Wabash and Missouri Pa
cific, a large part of Its grain business out
of Omaha. The grain shippers, It is said.
In order t.i get an allowance both at Omaha
and St. Louis, will ship by some other road
to St. Louis and transfer to the Illinois
- -Central at tlrat point.- - -..'..,. tr,-'
The Illinois Central probably acted as It
TT did In order to escape Investigation at the
hands of the Interstate Commerce commis
sion, for the St. Louis grain men have just
filed complaint against the Burlington,
Rock Island and Missouri Pacific roads for
making the elevation allowance at Omaha
arid not at St. Louis.

NEW YORK, Sept. S.-Lispatches by
wireless telegraph from the steamer Lusl
tanla, one of the giant ships that Is ex
pected to break records In making the
trips between Knglnnd and the United
States and return, give some details how
the steamer is acting on its first voyage.
One wireless message says:
"The Lusitanla traveled at no great pace
at' first, but the absence of vibration was
so noticeable that It made the pasengers
believe that they were dining in a hotel.
After dinner the pace was Increased. The
electric lifts on board the ship were busy
until a late hour Saturday night convey
ing people swiftly up and down between
the live decks.
"While hundreds were exploring and ad
miring the comforts of the ship, groups
of Cunard directors, ship experts and na
val architects gathered In the smoking
room and earnestly discussed the prospects
of the voyage. The Lucania, which left
Liverpool rour hours ahead of us,
overtaken and passed at 4:90 Sunday
morning. She had half an hour's start of
us leaving Queenstown.
"Two hours sfter we left Queenstown the
Lucania was still ahead. At 6 o'clock
j Sunday night It was about flftc-en to twenty
j miles astern of us. A fog caused the Lusi
tanla to slacken down Its speed, which
greatly disappointed the passengers. There
were occasional patches of brightness,
during which the pace was Increased.'.'
Another dispatch sent at 9 o'clock Sun
day night reported that the ship was 180
miles from Queenstown. The weather was
clearer. It was announced, and the vessel
was ploughing ahead at great speed. "The
Lucania believed to be near ms," the
dispatch' continued, "but Its position ' Is
not specified. It has not been sighted
since dinner time. The pasengers are lin
ing the sides to catch a glimpse of It if
possible. The progress of the Lusitanla
is beautifully smooth."
Later dispatches reported that the Lusi
tanla had passed the Lucania.
Residents of Ocean Grove. ."V. J., Take
Steps to Secure Relief from
OCEAN GROVE, N. J., Sept. 9.-Prop-ert'y
owners and lease holders here to the
number of 2TO have held a mass meeting
to protest against the "closed door" pol
icy of the Campmeetlng association, which
denies them representation In the organ
ization. Its meetings are executive and It
Is stated It has repeatedly refused to pub
lish a swom statement of Its financial
condition. The association by Its charter
granted by the legislature thirty-eight
years ago reigns over the resort and Its
2,000 permanent residents.
At the meeting Rev. J. I. Boswell, the
leader of the protestants, was successful
In having an executive committee of seven
named for the purpose of taking up and
framing for action the grievances the res
ident declare they have suffered for years
under the rule of what Rev. Mr. Boswell
terms "a religious oligarchy."
Resolutions adopted demand of the as
sociation a complete financial report for
the last decade.
A resolution hr.ndcj to the executive
committee for consideration was a propo
sition to have Ocean Grove cut off from
the rest of Neptune township In order to
escape double taxation. The adoption of
the plan would mean the annulment of
the Ocean Grove1 charter.

NEW TORK, Sept. . K. II. llarriman,
who has Just completed an extensive tour
of the far west, was at his country home
at Arden last night, when two reporters
tried to Interview him regarding a revival !
of the question of the size and source of
the campaign fund used at tho last national
election by the republicans, which has
again been taken up by several newspapers
Mr. Harrlrnan positively declined to see
the men or discuss the subject and the
reporters, who had come In a buggy, got
Into their vehicle and started away. The
roa, Bt run are dark dangerous and
one of th8 men held a lantern to light
the way.
They had gone but a short distance when
a man came running from the Harrlrnan
"What are you trying to drive thai way
for?" asked the man, whom both recog
nised as Mr. Harrlrnan.
"Don't you know that the light In that
position blinds both tho horse and the
driver? me show you how to fix It.
It should be tied to the shaft In this way."
Suiting the action to the word, Mr. Har
rlrnan took the lantern, crawled under the
buggy and with a bit of string fastened It
securely to the shaft.
The men took advantage of the oppor
tunity to make another try for the inter
view, but Mr. Harrlmnn told them that he
had mndo It an Invariable rule not to talk

Waterway to C.nlf from Lakes Will
(ilve Middle West South
ern Trade.
CHICAGO, Sept. 9. "The great middle
west will control the trade of the entire
west coast of South America when the
Panama canal is completed, providing the
deep waterway from the lakes to the gulf
is constructed. Otherwise It will be Japan,
Germany and England which will exercise
commercial sway over this vast empire to
be opened up."
This statement was made yesterday by
John Barrett, rtlrector of the International
bureau of American repubjlcs, who has been
In Chicago for several days conferring with
men Interested In the deep waterway prop
osition. It is his contention that the fed
eral government should lend all the uld
necessary for the construction f this ship
I canal to make the great advantages of the
Panama canal available to the Mississippi
valley. Mr. Barrett said:
"It Is not excessive to estimate the value
of products which these republics will then
be purchasing from foreign countries at
"The major portion of these supplies will
come from America If the great manufac-
I turlng centers of the middle west are pro-
vlded with water transportation. It re
1 requires no stretch of imagination to con-
celve boats or barges loaded In Chicago,
Jollet or other poitns in this manufacturing
district making the entire trip. America
has been slow to Improve its waterways,
much more so than any other of the great
.powers, and It Is time We awoke to the
advantage to be obtained."

Old Soldiers In Vast Numbers Spend
First Day Sightseeing In
NEW YORK, Sept. 9.-Many veterans of
the war of the rebellion arrived In the city
today from points In the south and west,
on their way to Saratoga, where they will
attend the forty-first national encampment
of the Grand Army of the Republic, which
will open tomorrow. The delegates, many
of whom were accompanied by wives and
daughters, spent much of the day In visit
ing Grant'a tomb, Governor's Island and
other places of special Interest to old
soldiers. They made a picturesque show
as they passed through the crowded city
streets, many of the veterans being bo
decked In a manner suggestive of their ap
pearance when they participated In the
stirring events of 1R61-65. Perhaps the most
striking effect was that presented by the
survivors of the famous "Bucktalls" Penn
sylvania regiment, who wore black Blouch
hats with bucktalls draped Jauntily about
the brim.

VANCOUVER, P. C, Sept. S. Having
nnlveil at Vancouver at 11 p. m. on Sep
tember 7, I fuund that during the early
part of the evening there was held
demonstration of the anti-Japanese and
Corean league, and about 9 p. m. a num
ber of rowdies, about 50 or 60, marched
into the section the city where the stores
kept by the Japanese Chinese are. and
threw stones, breaking considerable glass
Following this attack there came anothet
one. this lime the nunlber being increased
to about ROD. and the fronts of several of
the stores were broken. So far as I can
ascertain only one Japanese was wounded.
The police force did lis best, but, there I
hardly any hope of relief in that direction.
Consul Morikuwa is staying at the seat
of the disturbance, trying to impress upon
the city police to extend their protection
over the Japanese residents, and at th
same time to suppress the utmost excite
ment of the Japanese. There may be no
further disturbances.
Rioting; Is Repeated.
Mr. Ishli's hopo was unfortunately not
fulfilled, as late last night Consul General
Nosse received the following telegram
from Consul Morlkawa:
VANCOUVER, Sept. 8 In continuance
of the nicssuge sent by Mr. Ishll, have to
report that u fourth attack was made by
the rowdies alKut midnight on the Japan
ese, quarters. Twice again they tried to
attack the Japanese stores, but on account
of the vigilance of tho Japanese and the
city police, and also the late hour of the
night, their number gradually decreased,
and by 3 o'clock Sunday morning the
rowdies scattered everywhere, and tran
quility was restored by dawn. The damage
done to the Japanese stores is as follows:
General stores, 1.1; hotels, 9; candy and
confectionery shops, 7: bath houses, 2;
barber shops, 5; shoemakers, 2; hanking
otllce, 1; ni-wppeper otllce, 1; employment
offices, 4; restaurant, 1; rice mill. 1; hat
ter's shop, 1; tailors, 3; watchmakers, 1.
Of these fifty stores all the windows and
door glass was smashed. Two Japanese
were wounded.
Consul General Nosse will lay all the
facts beforo Sir Wilfrid Laurler, premier
o t'unuda.
Newspaper Account of Riot.
A special from Vancouver to the Star
Saturday night the Asiatic Exclusion
league held a parade and later a meeting
at which Lieutenant Governor Lunsuiuir,
who vetoed the bill introduced by the pres
ent Attorney general to enforce tho natal
act In British Columbia, was burned in
ertlKV. and a resolution was passed to ask
the Dominion government to allow tho bill
to become l;iw. It was after that the mob
I riorim iiiuiuiuwn, neiiupruieiy Binasning
the winrlows In nil flores Htroet
gathered crowds, wlo even swarmed up tint
telegraph poles, and a strong cordon of
police across the street had all they could
do to keep the niob from again entering
the Chinese quarter. As there had been
threats of hiirnlng, the fire brigade waa
ready with hose to use this method If neces
sary to keep the white men back.
While speaking whs going on the sound
of breaking glass whs acclaimed with Joy
full yells-by the hoodlums. Then the mob
broke loose on Howell street, a few bolcks
sway In Hnother direction, where the Jap
anesn reside. Here windows were broken
also hut the Japaneso resisted, and with
bottles and hoards attacked their assail
ants. Several people were Injured on til
counter attack.
From the Canadian Paeiflo railway
wharves a dozen Japanese were thrown
Into the water, but. were rescued. Thre
white men were stabbed by Japanese and
two others cut with broken bottles. A
newspaper man going home waa held up
by a Japaneso and when the latter was
taken to the police station a search re
vealed a murderous-looking knife.
. All nlgth hands of armed Japanese
walked the streets, keyed to high pitch hy
the excitement, and bent on revenge. They
were restrained, however.
It was a coincidence that Mr. Ishll. the
special envoy of the Japanese government
sent to Investigate the whole question of
Immigration, arrived last night on his
London Fenred Trouble.
LONDON. Sept. 9. The news of the at
tacks on Japanese and Chinese at Van
couver did not surprise the colonial and
foreign office officials here, who had long
feared an outbreak against the Asiatics In
western Canada, but they have the great
est confidence in ths ability of the Canada
ans to suppress any disturbances and pro
tect aliens. At the same time the officials
realize that a most serious problem has
arisen, particularly as the feeling appear
to be strongest against the subjects of
Great Britain's eastern ally, and that It
will require most careful handling, for
whatever action Is taken Is likely to b
resented either by the colony or by Japan.
The question has been the subject of con
siderable consideration for some time oy
the tinperlul authorities, who have used
their good offices on numerous occasions
to prevent the enactment of antl-Japancao
legislation by British Columbia.
It Is understood that the matter was
discussed at length during the recent visit
of the colonial premiers to London,
Australia being as much opposed to th
admission of Ahiatlcs as the Canudlans. No
steps were taken at the time, I owevcr, and
the subject was allowed to lapse until th
agitations were revived.
All the cabinet minister are out of town
at present, but the colonial and foreign of
fice officials are seeking to obtain all the
lnfciinutlon possible on the subject of the
Vancouver outbreuk, with the view of tak
ing some action, the nature of which It Is
difficult to surmise.
The attack on the Japencse and Chinese
at Vancouver places the English newspa
pers in an embarrassing and amusing posi
tion. Sevcrul of the most prominent of
them were particularly seveie upon th
San Francisco "hoodlums" nj en the out
break of much violence occurred llier.
They are now runfrunti-d with a mor
serious situation In a British colony ani
apparently arj at a lohs what to say. Th
majority remajn silent. The Times, whose
American correspondent severely and re
peatedly denounced the San Franciscans'
action towsrds the Japanese, is the only
morning paper commenting on the Cana
dians' demonstration. The paper deplore
