JAPAN'S FRANK DECLARATION
Washington Sept. 8. The exclu-
sive announcement In these dispatches
yesterday that Japan has selected the
Chinese province of Foh K(en and the
treaty port of Amoy as her portion in
the event tf a part'tlon of the Chinese
euplre and her declaration that she
would regard as an unfriendly act any
interference with ber paramountcy in

a sensation in diplomatic circles here.
Japan's frank declaration at this
earl y stage of her purpose is taken as
a deliberate warning to the powers
taat she does not intend to keep off the
main laod of Asia this time as was the
case at the end of the Chi no- Japanese

to the declaration Is the possibility It
conveys of a future clash between the

REMARKS OK JOAN S. HART.
"I wish to state at the outset" said
Capt. Hart ''that I am no enemy of the
Elephant Butte dam. I was one of the
subscribers to the project and I am in
favor of all such enterprises which will
help El Paso. I caused by my efforts
the withdrawal by Mexico of ber objec-
tion to the dam and I arranged a meet-
ing here in this city between the Mex-
ican ambassador and the jsaople of El
Paso that we might make more progress
in obtaining that great neoesslty. I am
not lnlmlattl to tt vitnh.nt f?.io '

Special Correspondence of the Hibald.
San Antonio Sept. 7. What ia
true of the republican county conven-
tion at Austin is also true of the Bexar
county convention held in this city laat
Saturday. The Herald's account of
the former as published Tuesday with
the names of the principals changed
would accurately hit tbe latter. x
Here Dr. G. G. Clifford tbe post-
master and Dr. Fred Terrell deputy
United States interral revenue col-
lector were the conventicn. Tbey '
rented Beethoven hall and when the
hour for opening theconventlotarrlve
one stood on each side of the door witi
Policemen McCanahan Scott Bonnett
Thompson and Rtffee Detective B J.
Crowther and Special Polioeman Buck
Hlce (late of El Paao) behind tbem.
Only those delegates whose precinct
chairmen were Green men were admit
ted and the Hawley men were stood off.
After all the Green men tal entered
tbe hall it was then announced that
the Hawley men coull enter tbe gal-
Ide stair and policemen were tb-n
eta'ioned at tbe foot of the ba'ceny
stairs ioeide the hall to prevent any of
tbe "spectators" coming down osto tbe
This latter precaution was not neces
sary however as tbe Hawleyltes did
not desire to "speclate" and after
waiting for awhile they went away and
held a convention of their own. Be
fore they left however one of their
number a little negro named Boone
tried to force his way into the ball and
reoeived a resounding orack over the
head from Detective Crowther's billy.
Inside the hall everything was
serene. Doctors Clifford aad Terreii
Col E. H. Terrell uncle of the latter.
and Chas W. Ogden were "It." They
had everything their way and their
pupp eta vcted j es acd no to tuit them.
Col. Terrell had the resolutions in his
pooket. Dr. Clifford had the list of
state delegates ready.
The state convention will be run this
way if local political prognosticators
are not away off in their prediction.
The supposed program is tbat Mr.
Green and his executive committee
now all Green men will meet 'uere this
week and seat all the Green delega-
tions and when the time for opening
the big show rolls around tbe gates
will be shut on all except those wear-
in; tbe Green tag.
Some of the Hawley ites favor secur-
ing a battering ram and entering
aiybow but the more conservative
favor holding another ocnvectlcn.
Baethoven hall aa telegraobel the
Herald Monday has been secured for
this purpose and there will wltcout a
doubt be two state conventions with
the result that two state ob airmen will
be put out.
The Green people expect this 'move
but declare tbat ttev can furnish
Hanna with tha most campaign' moccy
and win out but the Hawley people are
confident that they will be at once
recognized by the national oommittee.
The Green people want to aen the
national committee bold aloof from tbe
fight until the next national conven
tion leaving the two factlona alone to
fight It but "if they do this" aald a
Green lieutenant to a Herald man.
