A committee fidm the emigration agencies here has held a conference with Foreign Minister 'Hayashi, who announced that the plan of the Japanese government was to limit closely all emigration to the United tSatcs and Canada. Some members of the committee jried not for ornament or the pride of Chicago, 111, Dec. 7. The danger which arises frpm the habit of carrying concealed weapons has long been recognized in this country, and there is hardly an American municipality which has not enacted strenuous ordinances to discourage the practice. Some of these local 'wis. tttwarf lATTRESft i angrily announced their opposition to this course, but Minister uayasni remained firm.

Regular duels between Italians are by no means unknown. In New York's little Italy not long ago two Italians who had quar-; reled selected seconds (not to see fair ' play, for all is fair in a stabbing duel, ! but to prevent interruption by the police), and went in to Bght by the flick-; ering light of a lamp post. When it was over one of the men had crawled into a basement to die, and the police had no difficulty in tracking the other by the trail of blood he left. The knives most favored by the Italians are curi-. ously formed, with a terminal twist to the handle, designed to set against the outside muscle of the hand and insure a firm grip,-for the true Italian knife fighter lunges as with a foil, holding the palm of his hand up and guarding with j nee, untamed spirit which was charac tcristic of America forty years aeo. esne chilly of the western border; it is no 9K Play of Children is the rest and comfort of RED CROSS SANITARY FELT MATTRESS.

Ishii said that between the trusts and the labor unions the middle' class of Americans and foreign laborers Buffered, declaring that union labor was largely controlled 'by unreasoning persons, their attitude being almost that of tyrants, and they were liable to destroy anything standing in their way.. "Japanese engaged in agricultural pursuits as landowners or leasers," said Baron Ishii, "require a few of the best class of. their countrymen as laborers, but the government of Japan has been limiting the emigration of this class."

In many, If not all, of these cities where civilization has gained this victory over lawlessness any person in whose possession is found a dagger, dirk, dangerous knife, slungshot, billy, sandclub, loaded cane or metal knuckles is liable tovarrcst. A revolver may be carried, but only by special permit, unless the owner is a city, state or federal official of certain classes. Permits are issued with great care, and mostly to night watchmen and bank or express messengers. Notwithstanding these restrictions, the carrying of concealed weapons in the large cities, east and west, is a constantly spreading evil. The police of New York estimate that eiofitean nis otner arm new across tne chest. Favorites With Women. Much in vogue among the Italian rag picking women is a very thin stiletto, sharpened to a razor keenness on boht edges. So small is the mark left by this terible weapon that there is a record of one case where a doctor issued a certificate of death by heart disease and issued it in god faith, for a man whose thorough.

In Chicago, Cincinnati, San Francisco and St. Louis it is much larger.

More weapons are carried in the south than in the north, and in the west than in the east, generally speaking. There are no reliable statistics for New your dealer. He will return the purchase price.

The truly high grade professional "sporting" man does not betray the same propensity to the same degree. , Most . professional gamblers of the small fry class go armed. Every raid on a low class gambling hell around the wound, leaving a barely perceptible gash. .That familiar comic paper joke about the negro "spoht" and his "razzah" is not a baseless fiction. If the tough negro of the cities carries any weapon at all it is a razor. In use it is held with the blade doubled back across the knuckles, and the approved method is a long drawing sweep with the hand held palm downward. Fatalities are few, but the mutilations are frightful,the point of attack being almost always, the neck and face. A razor is one of the deadly weapons that can be carried practically with impunity, as the man who is arrested with one in his pocket can always plead that he was taking it to a barber shop to be sharpened! The only other class besides the negroes which carries tho razor is the hobo or professional tramp. It is the recognized arm of ho-b'tdom, and no tramp regards himself as fully equipped for the road until he possesses a razor. Josinh Flynt, himself a tramp of many years' standing, in his bcok on tramp life instances a duel with razors between two hobos at a tramps' resort in New Jersey, in which one of the contestants was killed. John Chinaman rarely goes armed. If he wants to "do up" an enemy he does not sally forth to look for him, but, with characteristic racial patience, sits in his own window and waits for the victim to pass. When he passes John drops n brick on him, or perchance a flower pot, and legal prosecution is unavailing, because John js always ready to swear that Tie- happened to be leaning out of his window at that particular moment and by ill luck chanced to dislodge the ATLANTA, GA.

Some few carry blackjacks, "life preservers," or metal knuckles, but they are, from the very fact, suspected of being more thieves than gamblers, or of being "snide" men, such as thimble riggers, . three card monte throwers and swindlers of that ilk who make the rounds of country fairs, seeking the "wads" of the innocent. The straight out buckers of the faro bank and the roulette wheel apparently carry their revolvers very largely as a sort of badge of their high profession. Time was when shooting affrays in gambling places in the" cities wertf crtmmon, and in the small western towns they are not rare. But in the big, prosperous, well-conducted gambling dens of the cities such affairs are about as infrequent as similar fracases in church. The proprietors discourage them as being productive of undesirable notoriety. So the gamblers, while perhaps the most numerous, are probably the least dangerous class among those whom we would naturally expect to figures as wearers and users of weapons. A classification of tne carriers of concealed weapons, according to nationality, reveals some curious results.

He chanced to press a very small spring at the side of the boxj and there darted from the top of the box two slender and extremely sharp daggers, which snapped into place by another spring.

Persons experienced in the ways of theChinese assert that the habit of wearing the pigtail coiled upon the top of the head is not so much a fashion as a method of self preservation. ; Deadly Sword Canes. Deadly canes, such as sword, dagger, pistol and loaded canes, are characteristic of the French, buanish and Cuban residents in our cities, but these weapons are seldom used, and it is rarely that one of them comes into the hands of the police. Those who carry them invariably plead ignorance of the law, explaining that they carry the cane as a mark of caste. . Other nationalities do not characteristically carry arms. The Irishman fights with the hands God gave him, unless it happens to be his wife that he is fighting, in which case ne takes the household furniture. The Swede seldom fights, but when drunk be will use as a weapon anything that is within his reach, from his pocket knife to an axe, if he can lay his hands on one, and he fights to the death. The Germans and the Jews are peaceful. The Greeks are cowardly, and some of them carry knives. The Aremniana and Turks prefer arbitration by their priests or by the law to open for;ce. What few Japanese there are hereabouts will go far to avoid trouble, but once having gone into the encounter they fight like whirlwinds and often with disaster to their opponents, as they are expert with any kind of stick or blade and also masters o? strange wrestling tricks that wrench and dislocate joints. The native born American, on " the average, minds his own business and keeps out of trouble. If he gets into it his hands are generally his only available implement of defence. No list of weapons could be complete without mention of the hatpin. Every Soliceraan knows the dangers of this agger and Is on the lookout for it when he arrests or arraigns a woman of the streets. ' It is the weapon par excel, lence of the demi-monde. While the prick with a pin sounds inconsiderable, it must be remembered that the pin is six inches long, and that the wielder of it aims for the eye.

At that time unicago was infested with highwaymen, and so many of these "life preservers" with the mark of the firm were found in the possession of suspects arrested for holding up citizens that tho police finally put a stop to their sale. Few metal knuckles, blackjacks, sand clubs or "life preservers" are now carried, however, even by professional cnmmais, as they are of little actual us, and it is probable that the carrying of them formerly was inspired more by bravado than from nny practical consideration. In fact, there are styles in weapons as in everything else. The invention' of gunpowder relegated armor to the junk pile. The increasing efficiency of the modern military rifle makes the doom of the sword inevitable. The revolver is already obsolescent.
