George Wellington Btreeter, is north of
the harbor and in. the- center of the
fashionable lake shore residence district.
Btreeter and his wife came there years

bar. The sand filled In between the
wreck and the ahore until their claim
comprised property aald to be worth
millions of dollars.
While the city has never admitted

'after being eerved, one of them walked
to the door and lifted his hat to a scout
from the invaders.

Streeter, heating the commotion seized
a putol, and according to the police,

POOL AND REED DO NOT AGREE
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 14. (Spe
cial.) The filing of the name of
Charles E. Hughes of New York to
go on the republican primary ballot
as a candidate for the presidency de
spite Judge Hughes' declaration that
he Is not a candidate has brought
about a complication similar to that
when a bunch ot democrats filed the
name of William J. Bryan with the
secretary of state of Nebraska as a
candidate for the democratic nom
ination for the presidency In 1911.
The petition filed yesterday is
peculiar In Us resdlng as indicating
that the petitioners had little hope
of being able to draw the judge into
the contest. The explanation accom
panying the petition reads: .
nesort ta ConscHplloa.
"W have riled Justice Hughes' name
hsolulely without his knowledge. We
fully realise that, so far as he Is con
cerned, he Is not and will not become a
presidential csndldate, and that he is
opposed to any consideration of his nam
In that connection. Notwithstanding his
well known attitude, and while regret
ting the necessity of disregarding his
wishes, w ar abidingly convinced that
the welfare of th nation, in Its brosdest
sense, demands th drafting of Its high
est and most available talent to lead
In the approaching contest for th tri
umph of republican principle and In our
opinion Justice Hughes I pre-eminently
the man, snd further, that th emer
gency demands a resort to conscription."
Mallery Gives View.
Senator Karl D. Mallery of Alliance,
on of the signer to the petition In the
city today, said In response to a ques
tion: "We simply put It up to Judge Hughes.
W recognised the fact that he would
not give hla consent to having his name
used and that he would not. become an
active candidate for th republican nomi
nation and so w took this step to find
out Just bow th Judge stood. It is. now
up to him. If he does not Withdraw his
nam . t will be evidence that h will
accept a nomination If tendered him and
os the whole matter Is up to him."
Whether the matter Is In the hands of
Judge Hughes is a question to be de-
,d"d of Jtat. Pool. whU.
la a nnaltlnN wIbSiI HAW Vaa St SI An
not in a position right now to pass on
the question and desiring more time to
look Into it. Secretary of State Foot la
inclined to the opinion that Judge
HiiKhes may be the only man who can
withdraw the Detltlon.
Petitioner I.aek night.
He does not think that the petitioners
themselves have the authority to with-
draw It certiiinly not unless every man
who signed th petition should request
Its withdrawal. However, he expect to
look up that point and bo ready for the
emergency should It arts.
On the other band Attorney General
need takes the off-hand view that Judge
Hughes has no right to withdraw th
petition. He has not had tlmo to look
into the matter fully, but on a short
glance at the statutes h Intimates that
I tho only way nam c,r b wth-
drawn is for Judg Hughes to author!
. Injunction proceeding to keep his name
of f the primary ballot. Ho also thinks
that possibly should enough of the
sinners of tho original petition withdraw
their namoa within the time limit so
that It would not have the
number. It might invalidate the petition

emperor receives the confirmation of his
hereditary right to deification.
In Japanese the ceremony la called
"Daljoeal," which translated Implies,
"urand Harvest, or Thanksgiving Fes
tival." The ceremony proper was pre
ceded by many preliminaries, including
that of yesterday, when prayers were of

house, and the sending this morning of
imperial messengers to each of the 172
shrines throughout the empire to notify
the spirits of the Imperial ancestor that

followed by his retinue. The guard of
honor, consisting of picked offlcera and
men from the bodyguard troops, were
arrayed outside the rrlnin gates of the

proceeded to the torll or Shinto gates at
the four sldea of the grounds and took
their posts as the guard of honor.
