ROOSEVELT DETERMINED TO REFUSE ANOTHER NOMINATION [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 16 May 1908
ROOSEVELT DETERMINED TO REFUSE ANOT HER NOMINATION San Francisco. —Ira E. Bennett, Washington correspondent of the San Francisco Call, says; In view of the actions of the Republicans of Utah in instructing their delegates to the Republican National Conventiort to vote for the renomination of President Roosevelt, I am permitted to reiterate the President’s unyielding purpose not to accept renomination under any circumstance. The President does not propose to issue another formal statement.!'.: regard to this matter. To do so might create the impression that he “doth protest too much.” There are others who charge that the President really wants the nomination, that he has been intriguing for it, that he has made Secretary Taft a stalking horse, that his recent activity in presenting legislation was inspired by a desire to strengthen the sentiment for his continuance in office. It can be stated as emphatically as words admit that there is not, has not been and will not be the slightest...

DECLARES AMERICAN WOMEN DO NOT MAKE GOOD MOTHERS [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 16 May 1908
DECLARES AMERICAN WOMEN DO NOT MAKE GOOD MOTHERS New York. —The Rainy Day Club learned something about American mothers, and American babies as well, that it did not know before, when it held its last meeting of the season. Wilbur P. Phillips, secretary of the New York milk committee of the Association for Improving the Condition of the Poor, which is to open seven new infants’ milk depots on June 15, was one of the speakers. He gave the members statistics that made them open their eyes, even though they learned that the American mother was not much good and the imported article was the only one worth considering. “In twenty-eight uptown blocks in the neighborhood of the Plaza and around Fifth avenue there were born in one year thirty-seven children, while in four East Side blocks with equal population there were born 370 children,” said Mr. Phillips. “If we wish good mothers, we must import them. Dr. George Coler of Rochester says. There are not only few births, but there is an app...

WORKERS FROM EUROPE MAY PIT END TO YELLOW PERIL Los Angeles.—That the Asiatic prob-; lem of California will be settled and j the “yellow peril” gradually dispelled j by bringing workers from Latin Europe, is the conviction of William R. Wheeler of San Francisco, the new i Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Labor, who was here last week. As a member of the Immigration Commission he has made a close study of the aliens in the Pacific Coast States, and he proposes an entirely new solution of the questions involved. “The substitutions of peaceful agriculturists from Southern Europe for Japanese and Chinese laborers, will ultimately clear things up,” said Wheeler. “With the completion of the Panama canal, the tide of immigration which now sweeps steadily into New York will be partially diverted to the Pacific Coast, and desirable farmers will land on these shores in increasing numbers.

JAPAN S MENACING ATTITUDE ALARMS CHINESE BOYCOTTERS [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 16 May 1908
JAPAN S MENACING ATTITUDE ALARMS CHINESE BOYCOTTERS Shanghai.—The Chinese boycott of Japanese goods which came about as a result of the humiliation inflicted upon the Chinese people by the Japanese Government in securing what the Chinese have considered an unfair settlement of the Talsu Maru case, will soon die a natural death. The movement was started by the Cantonese merchants, who endeavored to carry the propaganda into the various parts of China by sending urgent telegram# asking the residents to join the boycott. This movement did not succeed, on account of the strong position taken by the Viceroys, who took severe steps to prevent its growth and who succeeded in stopping the merchants in Tienstin, Shanghai and Hankow from joining. This attitude by the Viceroys doubtless was a result of Japanese pressure upon China. Two societies, one calling itself “the Society of National Disgrace,’’ and the other a woman’s organization, were formed to help the movement. Their establishment i...

Gather on Hillsides to View Picture of Fleet Traced in Outlines of Fire.-Uncle Sam Buying Tons of Food. San Francisco. —“A Vision of Fairyland."

Too dazzling in its wonder to invite spoken admiration, it holds spectators by the thousands bound under the magic of its spell. Two years ago a watcher in some tall tower in the city’s heart might have looked out over a blank, desolate waste of ruin, studded with not a single light for a mile of foreground in any direction, and over the bay, blank and cold, save where the riding lights of merchantmen formed a fringe at the water’s edge. Now, turn in whatsoever direction they will, eyes are dazzled by the radiance of a million lights, sparkling over the new city, sending a glare of white from e...

IRISH AND SCOTCH REFUSE E0 ENLIST. Brawney Subjects of King Edward Decline to Serve in British Army. Dublin. —The effect of the Sinn Fein propaganda against fhe enlistment of Irishmen in the British army is making itself felt. A return just issued shows that the number of Irishmen now serving under the British colors is only 22,000, the lowest point reached for fifty years. Five years ago the number was almost double. The situation is becoming serious for the British military authorities, particularly as the Scotch are following the example of the Irish and declining to enlist. The undersized, degenerate products of the English factory system are not up to the physical standard required, and the cavalry is feeling the pinch particularly. The military authorities have reduced the physical standard required, but are still unable to obtain the necessary number of recruits.
