REFUSED GERMANY AS ALLY.
Japan Objected When England Stood
Ready to Accept.
Loudon, Aug. 27. Revelation that
diplomatic negotiations which dually
resulted in the Anglo-Japanese alliance
first contemplated au Anglo-German-Japanese
triple alliance and that Ger
mnuy was largely instrumental In
starting them, but was shut out by
Japan, Is made in the diary of the late
Count Tndasu Ilnyaslii, former Japa
nese ambassador to Great Britain and
twice foreign minister, part of which
was recently published.
The diary showed that the British
government under the premiership of
the late Marquis of Salisbury was in
favor of the inclusion of Germany, but
that Japan opposed It Count Ilayasul,
in order to bring about the Anglo-Jnpa-ueso
alliance, hinted that Japan was
ready to ally herself with Russia If
Great Britain were unwilling.
Baron Hermann von Eckhardsteln,
at the time charge d'affaires of the
Gorman embassy in London, accord
ing to the diary, made several visits
to Count nayashi during the spring of
1001. In proposing tho formation of a
triple alliance between Great Britain,
Germany and Japan ho said ho knew
that tho British government and such
personages as Joseph Chamberlain,
Arthur J. Balfour, Lord Lansdowne,
tho Duko of Devonshlro and the Mar
quis of Salisbury were in favor of it
Ho said that the German nation was
strongly antl-Britlsh, but not the Gor
man government lie added that King
Edward, Emperor William and Im
perial Chancellor von Buelow had re
cently had long conversations on the
subject at Osborne, in the Isle of

U. S. POLICY "VACILLATING."
German Newspaper Says It Is Time
We Did Something.
Berlin, Aug. 27. One of tho inspired
semiofficial newspapers, publishing tho
report received by tho German govern
ment of tho killing of a German In
Mexico, bitterly scores tho United
States for Its "vacillating" Mexican
policy. Tho Berliner Gazetto says:
It is no wonder that the United States
is misunderstood in regard to Mexico.
Its motives are doubted. It la high time
that tho United States does something
positive In regard to Mexico. Its hereto
fore Indecisive policy Is confusing. For
the sake of its standing abroad It Is hoped
that America will come to Borne decision

JEROME SAYS liL'S NONPLUSED
Writ of Habeas Corpus Withdrawn and
Prisoner May Stay In Jail Till He
Wants to Get Out Laughs at
Sherbrooke, Que., Aug. 27. The writ
of habeas corpus under which Harry
K. Thaw was to appear in the superior
court of St. Francis and request his re
lease was withdrawn by Thaw's coun
sel, acting under his direction.
The withdrawn! of the writ places
Thaw In one of tlio most peculiar po
sitions in the history of Canadian juris
prudence. It is that:
First. He Is held In Jail under a charge
that Is legally not an offense against the
law of tho Dominion.
Second. Tho length of his stay In Jail
dejxmds entirely upon hlmse'.. So far no
way has been devised by the Canadian at
torneys In tho service of New York state
by which ho can be forced Into court.
Third. The barred doors of tho Jail
would bo opened at his demand, but he
will- not make the demand because the
moment he steps from tho Jail he will bo
arrested by the Immigration authorities
on tho double charge that he Is an unde
sirable alien and having entered Canada
"Got Them In the Air."
"1 guess I've got them all up In the
air," laughed Thaw, who Indicated
that the writ had been withdrawn by
Tho withdrawal of the writ was a
bombshell to the American and Cana
dian attorneys acting In the Interests
of Now York. District Attorney Con
ger of Dutchess and nector Verrel,
K. C, who is acting for tho Mnttcawan
authorities, hurried into conference.
"The effect of this action may be to
prolong Thaw's stay in jail here In
definitely," said Mr. Verret.
"Cannot the crown prosecutor, Jacob
NIcoll, move Thaw's tvlal or at least
bring him boforo a magistrate upon
tho present commitment?" Mr. Verret
"I do not believe so," lie replied. "In
my opinion, Thaw himself can elect
whether he wishes to bo tried upon the
warrant charging him with being a
fugitive from justice. He can elect
trial before cither a magistrate Im
mediately or wait and go before the
king's bench, criminal side, next Oc
tober. Commitment Was Faulty.
"On the other hand, as the charge
upon which ho is held Is not a crime
in Canada and ns the commitment Is
palpably faulty in that it character
izes Thaw as a fugitive from tho peni
tentiary of Matteawan I do not know
whether any court in tho Dominion
would allow the prisoner to go to

Colorado Springs, Colo., Aug. 27.
When the annual conference of gov

pet theories they have brought along
Governor Amnions of Colorado, for
instance, opposes national conserva

trol of public lands. Governor Hodges
of Kansas favors commission govern

ADRIANOPLE RUMOR SCOUTED,
Report Bulgars Would Give Up City
London, Aug. 27. There is nothing
to confirm a report from Constantino
ple' that Bulgaria has agreed to abau
don Adrianoplo to Turkey in consider
ation of compensation elsewhere. The
ruinor is regarded hero as most improb
able. Reports from Constantinople persist
that direct negotiations between Tur
key and Bulgaria havo begun,, but dis

SOMETHING ABOUT MEXICO.
There Is nothing complicated or
mysterious about the Mexican prob
lem, regardless 'of the opinions of
arm-chair Latin-American experts
who have never ventured south of
the Rio Grande.
The basic factor which must al
ways be kept In mind Is this: The
masses of the Mexican people aro
absolutely unfitted for self-government.
There are ten millions of un
educated Indians whose males of
voting age never have cast a ballot,
havo not tho slightest Idea of suf
frage and would not vote If they
Under the Constitution and laws
of the Republic of Mexico there are
no restrictions on manhood suffrage.
That means that there are not less
than 4,000,000 legally qualified vo
ters In Mexico. It Is doubtful if
100,000 votes were cast In the only
national election ever held In Mex
ico, the one which seated Francisco
I. Madero as the only legally chosen
executive since Mexico began its ca
reer as a nominal republic. Prior to
that time we never was able to find
a Mexican citizen who cofiluld boast
that he had ever voted or who ever
had a chance to vote.
There are probably about one
million male Mexicans of voting and
fighting ago who are fitted by edu
cation and position to participate In
self-government. ,Thls Is the re
sponsible Mexican million, and It
constitutes the clnss which must be
induced or forced to exercise its re
sponsibility or to surrender It.
The fundamental defect with this
responsible million is that most of
its members either do not know the
rules which prevail In a democracy,
or decline to abide by them. In
the first place, it is difficult for the
American public or its legislative
and executive officials to under
stand that the Mexican people are
without experience In democratic
Therefore, the army is and always
has been the foundation of govern
mental stability In Mexico.
It does not occur to the average
intelligent Mexican civilian that it
is any part of his duty to come to
the support of his government when
its authority is challenged by some
revolutionary leader. Please read
that sentence again and study It, be
cause It embodies the gist of what
is the matter with Mexico.
Why Madero Fell.
The utter lack of real democratic
patriotism the instinct to sacrifice
even life Itself In the defense of a
duly elected and qualified govern
ment was sadly demonstrated
shortly after Madero was chosen
President. At last the people of
actual experiment In self-government.
They knew Madero to be a
humane man and a true lover of
President Madero called on the
patriotism of Mexico and asked for
volunteers to assist the regular army
to put down the revolt of Orozco and
the other traitors to the government.
Secretary of State Bryan has
warned Provisional President Huerta
of Mexico, Governor Caranza, the
Constitutionalist leader, and local
Mexican officials at La Boquillo that
they will be held personally responsi
ble If any harm comes to Shirley C.
Hulse, son-in-law of Lieutenant
Governor Reynolds of Pennsylvania.
Although threats against Hulse
and others were made ten days ago,
the State Department has not yet re
ceived word as to the fate of those
concerned. Secretary Bryan is not
certain whether tho threats were
made by Federal or Revolutionary
