Jap on Naval Mission.
New York, July 12.—Admiral Huron
(jombei Yamamoto expressed, in or-
iental style, his views of the Japanese-
American difficulty when be landed
from the Cunard line steamship Car-
mania today. He said:
"What is- the friendship between
this country and Japan? Something
that has lasted since before our time.
That friendship cannot be frightened
away by a passing shadow."
Though the admiral's first word was
for peace, he comes here on a naval
mission. It is declared that his visit
to this country is made primarily for
the purpose of the study of our meth-
ods of naval construction and train,
ing. It is denied that the mysterious
mission was more mysterious than to
make some personal naval observa
tions, while he was on his way home
after attending, as aid, Prince Fushi
on his recent trip to Europe.
Admiral Yamamoto intends to stay
in New York until July 18, and then
to visit Annapolis, various American
cities and finally Seattle, from which
place he will sail for Japan. He is
traveling with a suite of five naval
officers. They are: Capt. T. Takar-
abe, M. Hondo, inspector of naval con-
struction; K. Fujii, engineering cap-
tain; Commander K. Kato, the admir-
als aide-de-camp, and T. Arisaka, the
chief naval ordnance officer. Besides
his Japanese suite, the admiral has an
English attendant, reversing our na-
val officers' custom of employing Jap-

Oil King Flouted by Woman Pupil.
Chicago, July 12.—John D. Rock-
efeller, founder of the University of
Chicago, was attacked by one of the
university's feminine summer stu-
dents, Miss Rachel Goldenberg, who
teaches school during the other nine
months of the y« ar in Shreveport, I a.
She said she never could hold him
up before her students as a model bus-
iness man and declared his many gifts
wen- only for self advertisement.
The attack on the university's ben-
efactor was made in Prof. Gorsuch's
public speaking class, which meets in
Kent hall. Miss Goldenberg was
aroused by a speech made by Miss
Mary Bacon, a classmate, who lauded
Mr. Rockefeller for founding the uni-
Miss Bacon took for her theme a
recent attack on the university, and
"Mr. Rockefeller should receive
praise from the students for founding
the university. If he is smooth enough
to evade the law he should be given
credit, and the law should be held to
Miss Goldenberg aroae and replied:
"I do not see why I, as a student of
the University of Chicago, should feel
grateful to Mr. Rockefeller for found-
ing this university. This Is only an-
other instance of where a great finan-
cier wished to get rid of his money
like the case of the great London fi-
nancier who founded a refuge for
homeless cats. Mr. Rockefeller only
deserves credit for better discrimina.

"I do not think Mr. Rockefeller is
a man who should be held up before
young people as a model, because it
uould lead them to try to amass a
great fortune without regard to the
moral standards he used to get his
money. I believe the questionable
way in which Mr. Rockefeller got to.
gether his money precludes any feel-
ing of gratitude from the university
Prof. Gorsuch, who usually criti-
cises each student both in point of
theme and in delivery, refused to
make a comment on Miss Goldenbergs

Springfield, 111 . July 12.—William
H. Hinrichsen, former secretary of
state, and one of the leading demo-
crats of the state, is critically ill at
his home near Alexander, Morgan Co.
He has been indisposed for some
time, and during the last few days he
has suffered a rapid decline and death
is expected soon. He was a member
of the executive committee of the
democratic state central committee in
the triumphant campaign of 1892. Af-
ter his retirement from the office of
secretary of state, he served two
terms as secretary of the democratic
state central committee and after-
wards was elected to congress. A few
years ago he retired to his farm at
Alexander. He is 57 years old.
Don't Want Raw Recruits.
Guthrie, Okla . July 12.—Adjutant
General Alva J. Niles issued two or-

discontinuance of enlistments from
August 6 until October 1, so the guard
will be clear of raw recruits at its
' annual encampment, and the other
