Reports yesterday also stated that
Sun had persuaded many members

Tientsin, China, June 7. (By A.
P.) In a remarkable manifesto
telegraphed throughout the country
today, denouncing- scathingly the
military cliques that have reduced
China to political impotence. Li
Yuan-Hung laid dawn the conditions
under which he -was willing to ac
cede to the request that he assume
' the task of assuming to head a new
centralized government in Pekin.
Li was president of China in 1917,
when the pressure of militarists
forced him out of office.
Referring to the numerous re
ojbests he had received to resume
tie presidency, Li sid these peti
tions had not left him unmoved. He
tien recounted what he termed his
sin against parliament for .giving in
tb the militarists and dissolving it in
&917. He spoke of the ceaseless
Ighting in China in the last decade,
fearing it was not vet over. Where-

"Cry for Vengeance,"
He declared that China excelled

in the sire cf its armies. Disband-J

farcical The people "'cry aloud for

The Tuchun system, he ternttd

Taking uj the various arguments
against immediate . abolition of
Tuchuns. he insisted that if the mili
tarists were sincere in their desire
to unite the nation it could be accom
plished in 10 days. While warning
the Tuchuns to see the sign of the
times, he gave assurance that those
of them worthy of consideration
would receive liberal treatment from
Li declared himself reluctant to
set-urn to Pekin, but-said he would
vndertake the responsibility if all
Tuchuns and high inspecting com
missioners would resign immediately,
accompanying him to the capital to
confer on the welfare of China.
"I am willing to sacrifice myself,"
he added, "but if this program be
not adopted the extinction of the na-

It is my inclination to stay until

Central Figure in Alaska Coal

Two Days' UlneeS.
Seattle, Wash., June 7. Richard
Achilles Ballinger. who was secre
tary of the interioW during Presi
dent Taft's administration, died at
his home here last night. He had
been ill two days.
Mr. Ballinger was the central
figure of an acrimonious dispute over
the development of the Alaskan coal
fields in 1910 and 1911, when he was
in the cabinet.
Mr. Ballinger was born in Bon
nesborough. la., July 9, 1858. the son
of Col. Richard H.' Ballinger, a dis
tinguished officer of the civil war.
The boy accompanied his father into
the southern camps and saw much
Judge Ballinger spent three years
in the saddle, .herding droves of cat
tle across the ranges. On one oc
casion he was nearly killed under
the hoofs of an unruly broncho.
At another time he spent a night in
a lonely shack, 30 miles from any
habitation, but he did not get much
sleep, as he killed three rattlesnakes
that insisted upon sharing his bunk, ;
drove out several others and in the
interim battled with hungry coyotes.
While he was on the range he
rode seven miles each Sunday to'
recite his Latin lessons to the ste
ward at Fort Larned. Three miles
from his camp, there resided a
preacher, who had a fair knowledge
of Greek, and Ballinger imbibed this
knowledge as well. Afterwards he
spent three years at the state uni
versity of Kansas and at Washburn
college at Topeka. While at the
latter institution young Ballinger
met Senator John J. Ingalls, who ad
vised him to take a course in Wil
liams college, Massachusetts. He
did so. graduating with the class of
1884 of which young Garfield was
also a' member. He afterwards
studied law in Chicago, became city
attorney of Decatur, and then went
to the state of Washington..

In analyzing'the circulation figures of Omaha newspapers, the
Retailers Survey, by the system of calculation adopted, actu
ally indicated a larger circulation for The Omaha Bee than
The Bee claimed or claims. Seldom, if ever, has this happened
to a newspaper, and it should be regarded by advertisers as
evidence of the most unusual kind as to the reliability of
The Bee circulation statements.
"Full measure," "honest weight" and truthful representation
of value of merchandise have been considered honest trade
practices for all time. Truthful representation of circulation
is as much honest trade practice for a newspaper as "full
measure" and "honest weight" is for the firm selling mer
chandise. It is jurt as dishonest for a newspaper to claim more
circulation than it delivers as it is for the tradesman to "short
weight" or "short change" the customer.
The A. B. C. is the recognised authority, nationally, on all
matters regarding circulation figures. . It is the agency com
monly agreed upon by publishers and advertisers to audit cir
culation of publications. The Associated Retailers' Survey
performed for the local merchant a service similar to that
regularly performed by the A. B. C. for the general ("foreign")
advertiser. The Omaha Bee belongs to the A. B. C. and was
audited by this Association in April. Both the A. B. C. records
and the Associated Retailers' findings are available at The Bee
office for the inspection of interested advertisers.

Declares Coronado Coal Cae
Decinon Makes Future Om
inous for Organized Labor
in United State.
Firm to. Ask Rehearing
Fort Nnith, Ark.. Jane 7 A re
hearing will be aked in the suit of
the Coronada Coal company and as
sociates against the international and
(d:nrict mine workers' unions and
! others, it was announced here today
by J. B. McDmough of counsel for
Washington, June 7. Declaring
that the supreme court decision in
the Coronado coal case was the "most
ominous in what it foreshadows for
the future of union labor in this
country." Senator La Follette, repub
lican. Wisconsin, today issued a state
ment in which he criticized the jourt.
The opinion, he stated, was "signifi
cant because of what the court says
on questions not involved in the case
rather than because of anything that
is actually decided."
After reviewing the conditions
which led up to and prevailed during
the strike in the Arkansas coal mines
m 1914, upon which the case was
based, the Wisconsin senator de
clared "a six-line decision was all
that was required to dispose of the
case on its merits, for the supreme
court was reluctantly obliged to ad
mit the fact as 1 have stated," the
reference being to his assertion that
"there is not and never was any case
against the' defendants in the federal
"To Berate Defendants."
The supreme court, however, Sena
tor La Follette stated, "went out of its
way through 29 pagts to berate the
defendants and to characterize them
as outlaws and murderers, and the
chief justice wound up his opinion by
aying:'the circumstances are such as
to awake a regret that in our view of
the federal jurisdiction, we cannot af
firm the judgment.' "
The court also went out of its way,
the senator said "to change the law
as it had existed in the United
States since the beginning of the
government that unincorporated as
sociations, such as are involved
here, could, not be sued as an en
"Root and Branch."
Reviewing what it stated 'was the
authority of the court upon which
it based that finding. Senator La
Follette charged that "Chief Justice
Taft neglected to state that as the
result of the TafT-Vale case, the
British parliament passed a statute
which cut tip'that decision, root and
branch, and made it impossible for
an English court to ever render a
similar decision." ,
"No doubt our supreme court
feels secure behind the bulwark of
a written constitution, the meaning
of which that court has arrogated to
itself the function of finally dermin
ing," the senator concluded.
Rail Strike Vote to
Take at Least 30 Days
Cincinnati. June 7. Labor leaders
have expressed the opinion that it
would take at least 30 days to spread
and canvass the strike vote autho
rized yesterday by 11 railroad
brotherhoods and organizations. Ap
proximately 1,200,000 workers are af
fected. The meeting of union heads at
which it was decided to authorize the
strike vote was presided over by B.
M. Jewell, president of the railroad
department, American Federation of
Labor. In a formal statement, it was
made plain that no agreement was
reached that concerted action would
be taken. This was impossible, it
was explained because group execu
tives had not been advised by their
membership whether or not they
w-ould be authorized to call a strike.
