Nclraiika City One of Places Desig- nated--Lurcre Patronage Ex- pected. From' Citizens of Koreltrn. Birth. WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.--The board of trustees of the postal savings bank system today approved a list of forty-eight second-class postoffices at which the plan will be given^ its first trial. The list includes one office for each state and territory. The trustees are Postn-aster General Hitchcock, Secretary of the Treasury MacVelgh and Attorney General AVickersham. The\met in the office fc 9f the postmaster -general today. The list they formally approved -was selected after careful- -investigation by the postal officials with a view to making the first test of the service as thorough as possible 'under the limited appropriation of $100,000 provided by congress, which includes all the expenses of equipment, including the engraving and printing of forms, certificates, bonds, clerical assistance, etc. Large Cities Must Wait. Owing to the smallness of this appropriation it has been impossible to establish postal savings banks during the first year in the large cities.. Communities were chosen in which the conditions were exceptionally favorable for the development of a. postal savings business, mostly industrial centers, where wage earners will be especially benefited by the kind of banking- facilities afforded. A large patronage of the service is expected from foreign-born citizens in these sections who are now remitting- considerable sums to their native countries, usually in the form of money orders. Many of the places selected", particularly those in the west, are not adequately provided with other savings institutions. The office's designated today follows: Bessemer, Ala.; Globe, Ariz.; Stut- uart. Ark.; Oroville, Cal.; Leadville, Col.; Ansonia, Conn.; Dover, Del.; Key West, Fla.; Brunswick, Ga,; Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Pekin, 111.; Princeton, Ind.; Decorah, Iowa; Pittsburg, Kas.; Middleboro, Ky-; New Iberia, La.; Rumford, Me.; Frostburg, Md.; Norwood, Mass.; Houghton, Mich.; Bemidji, Minn.; Gulf port, Miss.; Carthage, Mo.; Anaconda, Mont; Nebraska City, Neb.; Carson City.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.--The interstate commerce commission decided today that its order in the Reno rate case, involving class freights, _ shall become effective on December 1. Orders in other pacific coast cases involving commodities will become effective within the next few months. Determination of the commission effects all class rates on both eastbound and -westbound traffic destined to Nevada points common to Reno. Material reductions are made on the class rate. Really, two cases are included in one proceeding, separate complaints having: been, instituted as to the eastbound rates and westbound rates. The rates affected by the order Include all the class charges on shipments from every point of origin east of Reno to the Atlantic coast and all similar charges on shipments originating west of Reno to the Pacific coast. Coincidentally came the announcement that the commission would make its orders to be issued a few months hence in the other Pacific coast cases, effective on May 1st next. It is probably the orders will be promulgated about March 1, 1911, BO as to offord the interested carriers and shippers at least sixty days notice of the findings and requirements of the commission. The carriers -were requested by the commission to submit to it comparisons ofi the returns on the rates now In operation and on those tentatively suggested by the commission. FILUKG STRIKERS' PIECES. 3tl»«onrl Pacific Put tins Nevr SIcn Into Machine Shops. ST. LOUIS, Oct. 22.--The Missouri Pacific and Irion Mountain system continued putting men today in the places of the boilermakers, plpemen and blacksmiths who walked out yesterday in sympathy with the striking machinists. The exact number of new workmen was not stated by General Manager A. W. Sullivan of the roads. No action has been taken by either side of the proposed settlement offered by the business men of Sedalia. It is not known that-James O'Connel, head of the machinists , who is in Washington, has been advised of the proposition. A boarding house within the company's shops here was established tonight because of the boarding house keepers near the railroad tracks refused to allow the men who come here to live at their homes. The railroads have been promised the locomotives of other lines in event that their eauipment needs such repairing as the mechanical workers, who walked out, have been doing. The boiler-makers, pipemen and blacksmiths are quoted as saying they will continue the walkout, which was started yesterday; The switchmen's union, according to a statement of the officers will notify the roads that, beginning Monday, they will refuse to handle cars ^containing men who are to takes the places of the workers who ctmt yesterday.

M., Oct. 22.--That the New Mexico constitutional convention is determined to expedite its work so that the New Mexico constitution may reach .President Taft and congress early in February was apparent today, when the convention adopted a rule limiting the debate on the'initiative and referendum to three oays and ordered all committees to report by next Wednesday. On Monday the convention will go into a committee of the whole and -be in almost continuous session until all business before it is disposed of. Final reports were made by the committee on preamble and boundaries fixing the one . hundred third meridian as New Mexico's eastern boundary; br the committee on legislation, which declares against the initiative aud for a greatly restricted form of referendum, and by the committee on bills of rights which declares against disfranchisement on account of educational qualifications. PHOENIX, Ariz., Oct 22.--A complete judiciary plan based on the California system is provided in a proposition presented to the constitution convention. It includes three supreme court judges, elected for two, four and six years and a superior court similar to that of California. Other propositions introduced today were: One--Defining state officers' duties with an anti-nepotism provision and another exempting public property, schools, libraries and colleges from taxation. PRAISE FOR FIRE FIGHTERS. I ·Worfc or United States Troop* High- ly Commended. "WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.--Secretary of the Interior Ballinger has transmitted to the war department a letter from W. R. Logan, superintendent of Glacier national park in Montana, commending the United States troops called out to fight the forest fires. ''I deem it only proper that I call your attention to the splendid work done by the troops fighting fires in Glacier national park," wrote Superintendent Logan. "Colonel Maney. in command of the troops from Fort Assiniboine, was alive to the situation, and he and his command did sp'endid work. The enlisted men stood the hardship without a murmur working alongside of civilians who were drawing 25 cents an hour and board of the very best that money could buy. Major Hasbrook and his command from Fort Harrison, Mont., deserve equal praise with the command under Colonel Maney. "I had one company of the Twenty- fifth infantry (colored) stationed at Fort Essex, under the command of Lieutenant W. S. Mapes. I doubt if I can say enough in praise of Lieutenant Mapes and his negro troops. The work performed by them could not be improved upon by any class of men." DINNER. AT THE WHITE HOUSE. President and Mrs. T«£t Entertain the Mayor of Toklo. WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.--The president and Mrs. Taft gave a dinner tonight in honor of the mayor of Tokio and Mme. Osaki. and among the guests were Mayor and Mrs. Gaynor of New York. Mr. and Mrs. Gaynor reached Washington on an afternoon train and were escorted to the white house by the president's military secretary, Capt. Archibald W. Butt.

Watsul, Mr. and Mrs. Nobumori Ozaraki and members of the cabinet. TWENTY Mlf.LIONS TO EXPEND. Board of Inspection to Report on Reclamation Projects. WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.--After a. tour of inspection iovering- approximately 14,000 miles, duriug which every reclamation project was inspected, the board of army engineers, designated by the president to report upon the practicability of completing projects as well as to propose extensions, returned today. The board immediately will begin preparation its report to the president. On this report depends the expenditure of the bond issue of $20,000,000 authorized by the last session of congress. SENDING LESS FOODSTUFFS Volume of Exports Rnn Largely to ·WASHINGTON. Oct. 22.-- The increase in exportation of manufactures and decrease in exportation of food-stuffs are again Illustrated by the September export figures published bv the bureau of statistics of the department of commerce and labor. Practically all of the manufactures enumerated in its list of fifty principal articles show Increased exports and nearly all of the food-stuffs show a decrease while most of the manufacturers' raw materials show also an advance. Copper, lumber, agricultural implements, upper leather, sole leather, cotton cloths, lubricating- oil, naphthas, oil cake and ineal, builders' hardware, sheets and plates of Iron and steel, scientific instruments, boots and shoes, automobiles, India rubber manufactures, pipes and fittings, wire, sewing machines, electrical machinery. metalworking machinery, structural iron and steel, cotton wearing apparel, and patent medicines, show Increased exportations during the month; while Illuminating oil, para.n. naval stoies. and steel rails show In each case a slight decline. Of the leading food-stuffs exported (lour, wheat, hams and shoulders, also «oli. lard compounds, cotton seed oil. fresh heef, and cattle show a decrease; while bacon, lard, corn, and refined sugar show a slight Increase. Among the manufacturers' materials, raw cotton and bituminous coal show an increase, while lea£ tobacco, furs and fur s,kins show a decline. In that part of the statement which shows the exports for nine months, the rule of Increase in exports of manufactures and decline in exports o£ food-stuffs is equally apparent.

COINS A NEW PHRASE WKASEL WORDS MR. IIOOSEVKLT'S LATEST CONTRIBUTION. HITS AT PARTY PLATFORMS SAYS SOME ARE TREACHEROUS OH MEANINGLESS. Culuuel in New Hampshire In Inter- est of Candidacy of Ba»s--For- mer Senator Fomleer In the Limelight. NASHUA, N. H.. Oct. 22.--Theodore Roosevelt went campaigning across Xew Hampshire today and urged the election of Robert P. Bass, republican candidate for governor and the rest of the ticket. Beginning with a speech in Concord, he stopped off in Manchester and wound up the day with an address in Nashua. Mr. Bass obtained his nomination in a campaign against what he characterized the domination of the state by railroad influence. Colonel Roosevelt spoke of the recent statement of Charles S. Mellen, president of the New. York, -New Haven Hartford railroad and the Boston Maine, that hereafter the railroads would take no part in politics in New Hampshire. He told the people that while he was glad that Mr. Mellen had said what he did, they ought to see to it that the railroads kept out of politics in the future, not because they wished to, but because they had to. At Manchester Colonel RooseveH talked bareheaded while the raindrops pattered down. In this speech he emphasized "new nationalism." Control of Corporation:. He described his attitude toward control of corporations in this way: "All I want to see Uncle Sam do is to say to the corporation, 'Come, come, you tote fair.' "I never believed I had any genius," the colonel said at Nashua. "All I have done is to apply to governmental problems just the same qualities we expect a decent man to show In h's business dealings. I have been surprised at the support I have obtained and the animosity I have aroused. That group of financiers known at "Wall street has got to a. condition where it is seeing things at night. The New York papers -which supported Wall street" he added, "even say I want to be king." Tie said the vast majority of very rich men in New York were supporting the democratic ticket, "because they say they are afraid of me. Well, they needn't be afraid of me unless they want to do something- crooked." Colonel Roosevelt said lie liked the republican state platlonn because it contained no "weasel words." He explained that "weasel words" were ·words which sucked the meaning out of the words in front of them. WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.--It was learned here today that\Col. Theodore Roosevelt -will include Ohio in the campaign he is making this fall. His speeches in Ohio will Tie made at Cleveland, Toledo and probably several other of the northern cities. The exact dates for the speeches have not been fixed, but they will be made whiJa the colonel is returning- from Iowa, where he will speak the first week in November. COMES FORTH FROM S Fornlccr Urealcs Silence to MnUe A- taclr on Roosevelt. MARYSVILLE. O.. Oct. 22.--Former Senator Joseph B. Foraker signalized his return 'rt" legislative politics here today by going after Colonel Roosevelt and his new nationalism roughshod. ForakPr stood pat on the tariff, deplored the activities of the insurgents, urged Senator Dick's reelection and endorsed Warren G- Harding for governor and the entire republican state ticket. He spoke kindly of President Tart's administration and dcc'ared the republican victory in Ohio means a great deal to the president. Referring to Colonel Roosevelt's new nationalism, the former senator said that in spirit at least, it was as treasonable as secession itself. "It has one saving feature." however," he continued. "There'is about it all such a preposterous absurcUtv and such an unsufferable egotism as to excite not only condemnation, but ridicule. It is another case of 'vaulting ambition o'erleaping- itself. it has dispelled illusions that had bo- come dangerous. The peop'e now- better' understand the author am' know better how to judge what he proposes. They are not likety to longer regard him as an improvement on George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. "If there was nothing more Involved in this contest than a choice between men, no one need be seriously con- cernPd as to the outsome. The candidates for governor- are both fair and able-minded men of high character. "But there is vastly more involved than choice between Governor Harmon and Mr. Harding." Mr. Foraker said that republican 'party is not only confronted by its ancient enemy, but is menaced by internal dissensions that threaten its very existence. '' "We have lately had a new declaration of political principles," said Mr. Foraker. "They are practical^ baptized as the doctrine -of a 'new nationalism.' They the set forth in the nature of a platform for a new party. Possibly they are intended for that use only in the event that the distinguished author, be not nominated for the presidency by either of the old parties. "However that may be. It is well to note that they violate our dual form of government by arrogating to the national government the control of matters so purely local that they clearly belong to the Jurisdiction of the states. "The power It woukl give to the president ofl the United States would be far more autocratic and dangerous to the liberties of this people than arc those of any monarchy in Europe. "The program has one saving feature, however. There is about it all such a preposterous absurdity and such an Insufferable egotism as to excite not only condemnation, but ridicule."

"I said I knew both candidates. Both have sense enough to be congressmen. Both are honest but a man can be honestly right and honestly wrong. Both are courageous. I know Mr. Cundiff is "courageous, because he has dared to defend democratic principles from his youth in communities where it was to his personal and professional disadvantage. No one will denv Cannon's courage. It has required courage to dominate congress as he has done ,and defy the will of the majority. It has required courage to stand still and sea his party move on and leave him." PLEDGE SUPPORT TO FOSS. MASS OF BAD MONEY \ SECUIST SERVICE OFFICERS LO- CATE IT AT CHICAGO. THE WEATHER. ·WASHINGTON.

Fosa, ·· TALKING OF A REVOLUTION New-ly Crented Chinese Senate Shoivs DlMnoMltloii to A iiiaie tlic Throne. i PEKING, Oct. 22.-- A suDrisiiiR revolt has taken place against the government. The imperial senate. not yet three weeks old, lias voted to memorialize the throne lor the early opening or a general parliament. This action appears to indicate 'that the new senate will not b« a submissive or mock institution, but one with which the grand ^council must reckon. / As f.ir back as last June a formal demand was macie foi the immediate convocation ut a national parliament, the establishment of which had been promised for the year jyjo An imperial decree was then issued, refusing the demand, which was made by delegates to the provincial assemblies and -\\as supported by organizations of merchants throughout the country. The Imperial senate no sooner assembled on October 3 than the provincial delegates formed an opposition party nncl arrycd themselves against the throne. The- rjueMlon of the parliament wui, brought up daily and the demand was made mat it should nave executive anu not merely advisuiy power. The campaign culminated yesterday, when impassioned speeches were made, in which it w a s pointed out that a change was imperative for the salvation 01 the country. This plea won over a large majority. The Jiusbu-Japanese agreement with reference to the annexation oC Korea by Jaoan has been employed efflectlvely by agitators and the prrt,b during tho past few months to cerate a wave of pairio- tlsm. ana this pi opaRanda has marti* considerable progress? among the Intel Jigent classes, the pi ogi esMvu p a t t y now showing a strong nont against the united officials and the Manchu aimy. It is generally reeognl/fd. however. th«t the prince regent is .sincere in his fk- slre that the best Interests of the country shall be served, and thnt he lus resisted tho change onlj because he has been advised to uo su by the veneerahle grand councillors v. ho believe that the country is not piep.uptl for so sweeping a chnng* an1 ihat thi. establishment 01 liberal institutions might re.sult In a calamity. Following the action of the senate, there are intimations that many of the political leadeis an determined, to obtain their demanus. J n private conversations educated Chinese speak of a re-volution within t w o years, unless the tin one surrenders. A factor in the situation, however, s the garrison in Peking: and armv tlmsiop. .stationed In neighooring districts which are all Manchn.

CuuKlit Aliuont In Act of Turning "iJiit Five 1'cno XotCB ot XIc- nragruii--Mexican. ISiig;!-' necrcd Scheme. CHICAGO, Oct. 22.--Three hundred thousand dollars' worth of counterfeit Nicaragruan five peso notes, freshly reprinted, were seized and the printer who made them, the engraver who made- the plates and the man chargd with securing their -manufacture were arrested here today by Captain Porter, of the United States secret service, and his operatives. The notes had only been printed, not having- the "official" seals or numbers impressed. There were 150.000 notes, each of five pesos, worth approximately ?2 each, American money, and "signed" by F. Baca, advocate general; J. Madrita, "El Presidente" and F. Mayorgas. They had not been cut from'the large sheets. ' George B. Williams, president of the printing company bearing his name, was charged with printing the spurious notes; H. N. Secreest of Tampico; Mex., was accused of b'clng the promoter having the notes printed, and Richard J. Thumbull. manager of the Guarantee Engraving company, Chicago, was charged with having made the copper plates iroin Vhich the paper was printed. These plates were taken by the secret service men from the presses, where they were being used at the time of the raid. Williams Pleads Innocence. Williams declared, when arrested that he thought C\ H. Secreest was an official of tho Njeiraguan government and that the T\orlc was legal. Trumbull's plea was similar. The atory of the counterfeiting plan, according 1 to the secret service, is as follows: Secreest, a- planter of Tampico, Mex., has been loaning money to Nicaraguans and was unable, to get it back because of a shortage of current funds in the republic. Upon a public announcement that the government \vould duplicate for 1910 an issue of five peso notes similar to those of 1909 to relieve the stringency, Se- creest, seeing a chance to profit legitimately, came to the United States. Failing to make arrangements in another city, Secreest made a canvass of Chicago and upon his representation that he was an official from Nicaragua, the Williams company, through its president, agreed to print the .paper.--Oa--the^^aino--representation, according to Trumbull's story, the Guarantee Engraving company agreed to furnish the plates. A lookout tip to the secret service operatives from the first city Secreest is reported to have visited, (supposed to bo" In Ohio) enabled the' Chicago operatives to keep close watch on the Mexican, and today a watcher at thJ printing plant reported the three men in conference. Captured in the Building. Captain Porter and his men hurried to the big north side plant and captured the three as they were leaving the building. Eight bundles of the printed notes, twelve copper plates used in the printing and a copy of the official seal of the Nicaraguan government were taken to the federal building and the officials brought from the offices of the printing company two bona fide notes of tho 1909 issue, trom which the engravers are alleged to have copied the plates for the counterfeits. United States laws provide equal punishment for counterfeiters of Amoriean or foreign coin or paper money, the offense being having in possession the means of coin-counterfeiting or the spurious article. The penalty is not to exceed five years imprisonment or a line of ?i,000, or both. United States Commissioner Foote continued the case against the three until next Wednesday. Seereest's bonds were fixed at $10,000, Williams, at $5,000 and Trurnbuil's at .$. r 00. Both Williams and Trumbull furnished bonds.

Oct. 22.-- "Laymen. should be in a majority on the bench of the supreme court of tlip United States, or for that matter, in nU courts of the land. Th;s would quickly remedy some of tho renditions that confront the people today." This reform in the judiciary is advocated by Jon Strange, lieutenant governor of Wisconsin, who is visiting relatives In Spokane. His reasons for the change are as follows: "The Intent in determining all questions of law is based on the ground of common sense.

Va., Oct. 22.--Senator Stephen B. Elkins, who is ill at his home, "Halliehurst," near here, is somewhat improved today. His illness is connected with the upper bowels, and produces an intense pain, akin to acute indigestion. The Cornhuskers "came-back" yesterday and, playing with superb spirit and dash, administered a decisiva drubbing to the clan of Deacon Koehler from Denver university. Tha score was 27 to 0. King Cole's pupils gave their best exhibition of the year. The Cornhuskers were easily masters of the situation, but the Denverites waged a virile 'resistance and the contest, which abounded in the open style of play, 'was replete with thrills. Nebraska supporters had anticipated a tight battle and a close score, but were not prepared for the startling football that the Cornhuskers placed on display. Five touchdowns were, rung up by the Cole tribe during tha sixty minutes of action, while tha Denverites did not once endanger tho Nebraska goal. Coach Cole's new shift formations -worked superbly on almost every down and the offense was ' easily the most consistent and aggressive any Cornhusker eleven has shown in years. Nebraska's attack was a superb* mixture of line smashes, end sprints and forward passes, their -plays being executed so fiercely that the westerners could not stay the Nebraska advance. The weights were in the Corn- huskers' favor and the lighter Den- verites weretplayed off their feet early In the battle. Two Touchdowns in First Quarter. Two of the five touchdowns were, reeled off In the first quarter," after which the Denver eleven took a valiant brace and held the Cornhuskers level during the next two periods. Weakened by their efforts, the Den- verites slowed down in the final quarter, while the Nebraskans rushed in substitutes and let loose an attack which the Denverites »could not check. Three more touchdowns were chalked up In Nebraska's favor during the last period. Nebraska began tho scoring early in the proceedings.- Denver won the-toss"" and forced the Cornhuskera to kick against a stiff gale. Denver could not grain and was compelled to kick. Taking the ball in mid-field,j the Corn- huskers charged ahead for (steady gains and in four minutes of play, Harmon was through the Denver Una for a touchdown. A. muffed punt by Hammill soon gave the Cornhuskers the ball within striking distance and in three smashes off tackle Owen Frank broke across the Denver goal. The second and third Quarters were in Denver's favor, tho Koehleites carrying the ball more yards than the Cornhuskers. Captain Crowley and Quarterback Walker gained consistently in lugging the ball, but the westerners could not get nearer to Nebraska's goal than the thirty-yard line. An effort by Hammill at a drop kick was blocked and Denver's only promising chance to score had gone glimmering. Offensive Work Superb. , Nebraska's offensive in the last quarter was of the resistless order. A fake punt by O. Frank, which was converted into a forward pass to Left End Chauner, tricked the Denveritea and with Shonka and Minor to block off tacklers, Chauner raced ninety yards tor a touchdown. This spectacular sprint disconcerted the Koeh- lerites and their defense was easily broken down. Shonka, Nebraska's husky left tackle, broke around right end and sprinted thirty yards to a touchdown. Another smashing series and-Shonka once more lugged the ball across the Denver goal for the final count of the day. Captain Crowley gave a wonderful exhibition for the visitors, both on tha defensive and in carrying the ball. Three-fourths of Denver's gains were due to Crowley's efforts. At the finish he was on the vege of a physical collapse. The Nebraska line was too powerful for tho Denverites and from tackle to tackle the visitors -were easily outplayed. Owen Frank, Warner, Shonka and Chauner were Nebraska's most spectacular performers. The statistics of tho game show- that Nebraska excelled in every de- partm-nt. In carrying the ball from snap v ack, the Cornhuskers gained a total of 403 yards in fifty-seven rushes, while Denver gained 151 yards in thirty-nine rushes. Nebraska lost two yards in two downs, and Denver was thrown back twenty-one yards in five downs. Nebraska gained 455 yards on kicks and punts, compared with iJ56 for Denver.
