Jnpnneae War of lb 405 The Or
icnnlzntlon la of Venerable Origin
nnd Connected With Royalty
Since the arrival of the Japanese
rorcus In Korea the Ieusfers guild has
come Into prominence savs a special
correspondent of the Chicago News at
Seoul The arrival of Japanese troops
ut the capital and the arrest and ban-
ishment of YI Yong Ik tue very active
superintendent of police who was well
known to have been in the pay of the
Kubslans aroused the Ire of this an-
cient secret society which manifested
Its displeasure by blowing up the resi-
dence of the Korean secretary of for-
eign affairs and further signified Its
displeasure at the trend of Korean
politics by threatening various mem-
bers of the government and minor of-
ficials known to be favorable to Japa-
nese views
Tho IIo Sho or Peddlers guild
which has thus been making Its power
disagreeably felt Is a society of ven-
erable origin IIo Sho means literally
rag merchants and the society Is
knowti by that name throughout Ko-
rea Chlnn and Japan The Ho Sho
are descendants of a former Korean
They became a powerful Buddhist
order and when Buddhism was the
great force In Korea they established
themselves in what has ever since been
their work the propagation nnd ex-
tension of the Buddhist religion At
the same time they acted as spies for
the government which was under the
domination of the Duddhlst priesthood
In the early dcys of the order one of
the Korean emperors gave the IIo Sho
whom he neognlzed as part of his roy-
al kin ncommission to travel about the
country gathering Information for the
use of the central government In or-
der to do this effectively they disguis
ed themselves as rag merchants and
thus were able to onter without sus-
picion almost every household bear
iuiportnut news and gulnlng the couil
deuce of the people report to the gov-
ernment thi trend of popular thought
In this way the government was able
on different occasions to nip in the bud
popular movements dangerous to Its
To this day the religious nature of
the guild Is recognized By many pious
BuddplsU It Is considered to be bound
up with the welfare of Buddhism and
the empire Indeed were It not for the
contributions of these > peopleitwould
taCc a haoirUme keepingTu JUtraol
tlonij arid eVen maintaluInV Its exist-
ence The Buddhists however con-
tribute largely to Its funds and the IIo
Sbo is n power In the land
It Is essentlnlly a power linked to
the past Its methods of vloleoce and
terrorism arc retrogressive It stands
for old superstitious old ways and
effete customs that have prevented the
development of the Korean national
life and left the nation itself to be-
come a bone of contention for the Japa
uesc nnd the Russians
When the war broke out between
China and Japan in 1KH a large sec
lion of the nation favored Japan
Japanese ways and methods were
adopted by many and for a time It
seemed ns though the nation was to
waken into new life Japanese Influ-
ence warred with Itussian influence
In the imperial palace nnd the Japa-
nese for a time seemed to be gaining
the upper hand
The defeat of China had greatly In-
creased Japanese prestige everywhere
in Korea and had the Japanese only
been a little less eager to civilize the
Koreans or willing to wait a little
longer until their plans were fully ripe
Korean history might have been dif-
ferent Japan however was incensed
nt Itussian intrigue In the palace
which continually thwarted the reform
movement Tills influence It attribut-
ed rightly or wrongly to the late em-
press and the IIo Sho The Japanese
allied themselves with the advanced
Koreans In a plot to kill the obnoxious
The plot succeeded The queen
was murdered but this crime only suc-
ceeded In driving the Korean emperor
into the arms of the Uusslans nnd
Japanese influence in Korea waned
from that day until tecstnbllnbcd by
the recent Japanese victories over the
Ktistlnn fleet and by the advance of
Japanese troops into Korea
J he IIo Sho still adheres to Its con-
servative ciecd and to Its Itussnputl
tendencies Itussian diplomacy has
alwaxbn friend at court In the emis-
saries of this still powerful society
The head of the IIo Sho who Is called
the tlil eli liin Is known to receive
n very substantial subsidy from his
Itussian friends 1 his money is spent
propagating the doitrlncs of the so-
ciety and in keeping alive opposition
to the Japanese
It is likely however that as the Jap-
anese tighten their grip on the country
the leaders of the society will experi-
ence the fate of the head of the Ko-
rean police and be gradually elimi-
nated from the country by deportation
to Japan or by a quick dispatch to
that land where Intrigue Is nt rest

Captain Eells Plan to Defy
Sands of Diamond Shoals
Dolon linn With Aid of Steel C l

doned Ileum the Whole Cxptjuse

For the first time In the history of
the United States a private individual
at his own expense Is about to at-
tempt a feat which the United States
government department has abandoned
after repeated fuilures as beyond Its
power to accomplish says the Boston
Herald The Individual whose colos-
sal courage has won for him universal
admiration is Captain Albert V Kclls
of Boston and the feat he will at-
tempt is the erection of a lighthouse
and fog signal on Outer Diamond
shoals off Cape Uutteras known as
the graveyard of the Atlantic
Captain Eells has received the au-
thorization of congress to undertake
the work subject to specified condi-
tions and with the understanding that
If after a years operation conducted
at his own expense and four years ad-
ditional at the cxpeuse of the govern
In 200 feet of water Between these
two marks lies the graveyard with-
out a buoy to Indicate its presence It
extends about eight miles from the
shore and on It thousands of wrecks
have occurred
No lightship will stay on this terrible
shoal and no rock exists upon which a
permanent structure can be raised
The lightship referred to though held
by mushroom anchors weighing 5000
pounds has been driven from her
moorings time after time The life
savlug service has been practically
powerless to save life and property at
this point and between 1875 and 1002
the records show that ninetyseven
wrecks occurred with a loss of sixty
two lives and 53000000 worth of prop
erty In the face of such appalling

Captain Eells intends toconStructTa
huge solid rock which will deeply im-
bed ltsolf In the shifting sands so
large so heavy and firm in Its founda-
tions that neither sea nor tide nor tem-
pest can affect It The rock of Gibral-
tar Itself ir the daring captain suc-
ceeds In his enterprise will not be
more secure than this artificial foun-
dation on the top of which will be
erected a strong steel tower bearing on
Its pinnacle i beacon to the world
Captain Eells plan Is to construct at
a nearby shipyard a monstrous steel
diving bell which will not only be hol-
low In the center but will have hollow
sides so that It will float Just enough
stone and concrete will be dropped
Into the lower part of the air space to
sink the bell mouth down to a depth of
twentyeight feet below the surface
The bell will be towed to the shoal and
Its hollow sides tilled with stone aud <
concrete until It sinks to the bottom
The water will then be pumped unit
from the top when the structure be
comes nn immense caisson Workmen
will remove the sand from within and
the caisson will be sunk to any desira-
ble depth Into the sea bottom
Ten layers of masonry will be laid In
the bottom and fastened down by steel
cross beams Then the hollow will be
entirely filled with gravel stone aud
cement to a height of thirty feet above
the surface When this mass hardens
it will form a rock weighing many
thousands of tons nnd will last many
centuries The outer covering of steel
may corrode nwny and disappear In
time but the bell shaped rock will re-
On top of this the steel supcrstruc
ture will extend to a height of 200 feet
above the sea level It will contain
living rooms for the lighthouse kec > er
and an engine room with n dynamo
for generating the electric light The
platform balcony surmounting the liv-
ing apartments will be eighty feet
above high water and the men nnd
supplies will reach It by means of a
huge derrick nnd tackle The life-
savers and their boats will also be
hoisted and lowered in the same way
All the details of construction etc
must be submitted for approval to the
secretary of commerce and labor who
will also have supervision of the equip-
