Cleyeland, Ohio, Oct. 4.-Clevelanid's

California Federation of Labor, in
Session at Eureka, Propose

Committee of Miners Meets With
American-Mexican Com-
Headquarters American - Mexican
Commission, At1,ntic City, N. J., Oct
4.-It may be unwelcome news to cer-
tain bandits and Mexicans who have
been living off the fight rather than
the fat of the land, but there is a
scheme on foot to put Mexico to work.
The committee of mining men who
conferred with the American-Mexican
peace commission during the past two
days saw the Mexican group again to-
day. These sessions are the basis for
the work idea.
The mining men are going over the
tax situation of Mexico, the railroad
problem, and general plans for put-
ting the Mexico working machinery
back into order, or substituting the
use of the pick and shovel for the rifle
and sabre as the national pastime.
The American commissioners have
served notice that the United States
cannot encourage return of Americans
to the mining districts until safety of
life andproperty are assured, which
may be interpreted to mean that while
Carranza is complaining about with-
drawal of American troops, it is up to
him to get control of the interior dis-
trict where idle mines are located.
While Carranza is still insisting upon
early withdrawal of General 'Persh-
ing's forces in any discussion of bor-
der patrol, it is denied that he has
made any threat to recall his commis-
sioners if there iso rcompliance with
his request.
Mexico City, Oct. 4.-Reports pub-
lished in American newspapers that
General Carranza has demanded the
immediate withdrawal of the Ameri-
can troops from Mexico were declared
"absolutely false" by high officials here
today. They also denied that General
Carranza had threatened to recall the
Mexican commissioners now at At-
lantic City, unless the troops were
withdrawn at once.

organizing the Chinese and Japanese
workers in this country under the pro-
tection of the American Federation of
This is the first time that this ques-
tion has ever been given serious con-
sideration in a convention of American
labor. Action on the matter was in-
spired by the address delivered before
the convention by Delegate Susuki,
representing the Japanese Labor
Friendly society.
President Harry B. Hutchins and
Mrs. Hutchins will act as chaperones
for the Saturday night dance to be
held at the Michigan Union. Laurence
B. Hadley, '17E, will act as chair-
man of the dance committee. Names
of theother committeemen will be
announced in Friday's Daily.


George Patterson Arrested for Steal-
ing Camera of Prof.

Charged with the theft of a $200
camera, the property of Prof. Hugh
Brodie, of the surveying department,
George Patterson, of Detroit, is lodged
in the county jail.
Patterson walked into the Delta cafe
about noon yesterday and left the
camera there, saying that he wished
to attend the football game and that
he would return between 9:00 o'clock
and 11:00. Meanwhile the camera had
been missed from Professor Brodie's
office and traced to the Delta where
an officer was on the lookout for Pat-
terson. He was taken into custody
late in the afternoon.
Patterson, who is about 40 years old
and well-dressed, at first represented
himself as being a wealthy ranch
owner of Australia, but later admitted
that he was a gentleman gambler,
hailing from Detroit. In his posses-
sion were found four $100, seven $50,
one $20, two $10, seven $5 and sixteen
$1 bills, beside five dollars in silver.
Bt 25 Men Appear at First Gather-

Twenty-five men turned out for the
first informal meeting of those inter-
ested in military training this year.
This is not up to the expectations of
those who have been foremost in fur-
thering the cause of national pre-
This year it is expected to have at
least four companies or 500 men, the
use of Waterman gym at least twice a
week and Ferry field when the weather
permits. There may also be a United
States officer for tactical drills, and
the government is expected to furnish
Last year the movement had a late
start. The University Senate recom-
mended compulsory training, but the
Board of Regents refused to authorize
its introduction in the university for
the time being. Instead, it passed a
resolution agreeing to give the use of
the gymnasium and Ferry field and to
foster the movement to the full extent
of its power.
After spring vacation meetings of
students interestedawere called by
Prof. Hobbs and Major C. A. Wilson,
and after drills in the gymnasium
these meetings were held once a week
on Ferry field. Two companies or-
ganized, bought their own uniforms
and used rifles furnished by the state.
The attendance was fairly faithful and
the companies made a good appear-
ance in the Memorial Day parade.
It is supposed that owing to the
presence at Plattsburg of quite a few
members of the faculty and student
body and remarks made by President1
Harry B. Hutchins at Plattsburg, that1
the movement will have a favorable
reception this year. A meeting will

Massillon, Ohio, Oct. 4.-President
Wilson's first journey into the central
west since accepting renomination for
office has served to delight his politic-
al managers. Meanwhile, holding,
strictly to his intentions of making no
speeches which might characterize
this trip as a campaign Junket, the

At Salem, Alliance, Canton, and
other points where brief stops were
made, fully 20,000 thronged about his
car. No calls were made for speeches.
Nothing but shouting and cheering
and the President responded only with
waves of the hand and handshakes.
At Canton he halted the demonstra-a
tionslong enough to send his regards,

Safeguarding of River Carried on by
liehigan Edison Com-
Continuing the work of safeguarding
the Huron, the Eastern Michigan Edi-
son company has removed logs and
stumps from the bed of the river in
Argo pond, just above Argo dam, the
first dam up the river from Ann Ar-
Four weeks ago the water-in the
pond was allowed to fall four feet,
and was kept down to this stage for
10 days while a gang of men was at
work dynamiting obstructions from
the bottom of the pond. All obstruc-
tions were cleared away to a depth
of two feet below the surface of the
water at normal' level. Canoeists on
the pond, which is the stretch of wa-
ter just north of the boathouse, will
be safeguarded by this voluntary con-
tribution of the power company to the
cause of safety first.
Another factor which has made
canoeing more safe than last year is
the fact that two of the railroad
bridges have been raised. It is true
that the railroad company had no in-
tention of aiding canoeists in passing
along the river when they raised the
bridges a distance of 18 inches, but the
additional space will save many a
portage which formerly was necessary
on account of the small space between
the bridges and the water.

Washington, Oct. 4.-The appoint-
ment of Count Marshall Peranchi as
Premier of Japan, announcement of
which was made today at Tokio, is
an effort of the political factions of
Japan, and put an end to the bitter
party strife of the past few years,
according to Japanese embassy offic-
ials here today.
Peranchi being .a military man, it
was said, belongs to no party and
therefore is in a good position to win
the support of all parties. It is ex-
pected that he will name a coalition
cabinet. The efforts being made to
harmonize the political groups in
Japan are said to be for the purpose of
getting the country solidly behind the
government and the three big ques-
tions of the day, namely: Japan's
relations with the United States, her
relations with China, and the ques-
tion of taxation for the main-
tenance and increase' of her army
and navy. The new Premier's at-
titude toward eastern issues is not
definitely known by Japanese officials
here, they say.
Speaking of his future stand on Jap-
anese immigration and land questions
with the United States, they said how-
ever, that the Premier had a reputa-
tion in Japan for extreme cautionue-
garding international questions and
that they wer6 sure he would do no-
thing to harm- the friendly relations
between Japan and the United States.
