United States Supports France.
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. The answer of
the 'United States Government to the
French overture respecting France's
movement in Turkish waters Is understood
to have l)ean conveyed already by Secre
tary nay to M. Margarie, the French
Charge here, and to have consisted of a
statement that the United States Govern
ment Is not concerned directly In the re
public's doings, In view of the French
statement that It is not proposed to affect
our trade unfavorably. It Is surmised also
that our Government Is not dissatisfied
with the establishment by France of a
precedent for the collection of indemnities
from Turkey.

What the London Weekly Papers
Say of the Election.
LONDON, Nov. 8. The weekly papers
tomorrow will have a good deal to say
about the defeat of Tammany Hall. The
Spectator thinks that Mr. Roosevelt's
succession to the Presidency, giving all
reformers hope and confidence, weighed
heavily In the contest, adding that It
may be expected that his Influence will
be felt In other great American cities
like Philadelphia and Chicago, which, the
paper says, are hardly In better condition
than New York, though they are less
closely watched by Europeans. Continu
ing, the Spectator says;
"If this Is the case. President Roose
velt's term of office will benefit the whole
world, for the condition of American cities
is at present an opprobrium to liberalism
everywhere. The people there are really
free, and, say all the reactionaries, look
at the men they elect and the crimes they
sanction and condone. The best-governed
city In America, by universal consent. Is
Washington, directed by a nominated and
paid commission."
The Saturday Review, with Its usual
distrust of all things American, says that
Tammany is "the product of thatv falsa
sense of equality prevailing in America,
according to which settlement of all sortp
of minor offices Is put Into the hands of
electors who care nothing about them."
Wirepullers, logrollers and bosses, types
all as ugly as their names, will flourish
in the future as In the past, says the
paper. Decent people will be sufficiently
shocked at the prevailing extravagance
and corruption to demand Immediate ref
ormation, but the organization of the fu
slonlsts,.as well as Tammany, is sure to
reappear -In a generation.
Did Not Pay an Extravagant Price
for Paintings.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8. The statement
that Charles T. Yerkes paid 16.000 ($50,000)
for two Turners, has evoked emphatic
denial from that gentleman, according to
the Herald's London representative. Tfte
pictures In question, which hung In Mr.
Yerkes private office at the Hamilton
Building, are both early works of the
famous English artist, one of them, "In
Sunny Italy," being hardly recognizable
as a Turner at all.
"The price has been greatly exagger
ated," aid Mr. Yerkes in answer to an
inquiry. "I would not pay any such price.
Pictures which sell at these absurd fig
ures are, as a general rule, not worth any.
thing like the amount, and such reports
I regard as mischievous to art Itself.
Foreigners do not pay any such money
for works of art. It Is left for Ameri
cans to do the ridiculous In this respect."
"WlTat about the duty on pictures
shipped to America?" was asked.
"The duty In the past, as compared with
the present, is remarkable, to say the
least," replied Mr. Yerkes. "Before the
present tariff went Into operation all pic
tures painted before 1700 were admitted
"American artists have always claimed
they did not require or desire protection.
The old masters surely cannot be ac
cused of being In competition with Ameri
can artists. It is to be hoped that the
United States will not be left as the only
nation in the world which compels duty
to be paid on works of art."
Text of the Manchurian Treaty.
LONDON, Nov. 9. The Hankow corre
spondent of the Times supplies what he
alleges is a correct translation of the au
thentic text of the Manchurian convention
proposed by Russia. The convention stip
ulates for the gradual withdrawal of the
Russian forces within three years, "pro
vided no other rebellion occurs and the
powors do not interfere." The number
and stations of the Chinese garrisons j
must be settled in concert with the Rus-
slan military authorities, and Russian
assent must be obtained ,for any railway
construction in Southern Manchuria. "
"No mention is made in the text sent
by the grand council to the Southern
Viceroys of mining, commercial or other
exclusive privileges, ' says the correspond
ent, "and the Viceroys believe the -convention
contains other clauses which the
grand council is not willing to disclose."

The Cretan Settlement.
NEW YORK. Nov. S. The Vienna cor
respondent of the London Times and the
New York Times, commenting upon the
meeting of the King of the Hellenes and
Emperor Francis Joseph, says that since
the Gratco-Roumanlm rapprochement
under the auspices of Austrla-Hungar
the Balkan Peninsula has been less at
the mercy of the unscrupulous agencies
who would bring about a European
war in order to satisfy their own selfish
ambitions. Austrian and Greek interests
lie very much in the same direction and
though there are no grounds to suppose
that special arrangements have been
made between thfi- two countries, a break
down of the status quo would undoubted
ly find them prepared.
In regard to Crete, says the correspond
ent, the present settlement Is not meant
to last forever. Means will be found to
make the conditions tolerable for the
High Commissioner and the Cretans un
til a union with Greece will be possible
with less risk of occasioning disturb
ances than Is the case at the present
Russian Alliance With Japan.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8. The Toklo cor
respondent "of the London Times and the
New York Times says the leading Japan
ese journals have been earnestly discuss
ing the overtures in Russian newspapers
looking toward a Russian alliance with
Japan The proposed basis of the ar
rangement is that the Toklo Government
refrain from all measures Impeding Rus
sia in Manchuria. Russia, In return, would
pledge herself to leave a free hand to
Japan In Corea, but Russia should bo al
lowed to appropriate a convenient naval
station in Southern Corea.
None of ihe Japanese Journals approve
the idea, the papers objecting that two
powers cannot divide supremacy in the
far East. They also oppose the proposal
as pointing to the permanent absorption
of Manchuria by Russia.
The Times correspondent says Japan
wants Corea to remain Corcan, but also
wants the world to recognize that Japan's
interests there are too vital to allow her
to remain an, active spectator of Corea's
absorption by another power.
Fog in France.
NEW YORK, Nov. 8. Acordlng to the

LONDON, Nov. 8. The hearing of the
charges against Theodore and Laura
Jackson (Ann Odella Diss de Bar) at the
Marylebone Police Court here, continues
to attract crowds. Prominent stage peo
ple. Including H. J. Irving and Clement
Scott, and leaders of the bench, bar,

a reiteration of previous evidence. The

Italy's New Battle-Ship.
NEW YORK. Nov. 8. The battle-shlp
Bfrennetto Bren has been successfully
launched at Castlemare, in the presence
of the King and Queen, says the Naples
correspondent of the Herald. On the ar
rival of the Queen she was presented

Dickinson Has Difficulty In Dealing
With' Miss Stone' Captors.
SOFIA, Nov. 8. The government last
night caused the arrest of a man who was
visiting United States Consul General
Dickinson and searched him, presumably
thinking that he was an emissary of the
brigands, and expecting to seize a com
munication from or to Miss Stone, the
American missionary. The man was sub
sequently released. This action of the
authorities was seemingly a deliberate at
tempt to frighten delegates who might
visit Mr. Dickinson, and thus prevent ne
gotiations from taking place In Bulgarian
territory. The attitude of the authorities
hampers Mr. Dickinson, as the brigands
refuse to treat in Turkey.
Mr. Dickinson, in his reply to Miss
Stone's letter, urged the brigands still
further to reduce their demands and ac
cept the amount subscribed, in view of the
determination of the Government not to
contribute toward the ransom and the Im
possibility of collecting further subscrip
tions. It Is believed the brigands will
agree to this.
A messenger last night brought a letter
from Miss Stone, written In English. All
the previous communications from Miss
Stone have been In Bulgarian. The let
ter says she Is still well, and gives valu
able information about her captors and
other circumstances which Miss Stone
was debarred from sending In Bulgarian.
Little Known at Washington.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. All that can
be gathered hore touching Miss Stone's
case Is that the reports from the Levant
are to the effect that some kind of com
munication is being maintained, though
very Indirectly, between Miss Stone's
captors and the people who are trying to
secure her release. It is believed that up
to this point the missionaries themselves
have been the only persons to keep oponlj
the line of communication.

Tvro Na-val Reports.
WASHINGTON, Now 8. The Navy De
partment has received mall advices "frona
both sides of the Isthmus of Panama
touching the revolutionary condition.
From the west side Captain Perry, of the
Iowa, reports from Panama, and on the
Gulf side. Commander McCrea, on the
Machlas, submits a report from Colon.
These reports are important as throwing
light on the political conditions there
rather than as conveying news, of war
like conditions.. They are ns follows:
"United States Steamship Iowa, Pana
ma. Colombia, Oct. 28, lC01.,-SIr: I havo
the honor to report that all Is quiet and
peaceful in and about Panama. The ac
tivities reported in my letter last week
on the part of the Insurgents and gov
ernment forces quickly subsided and
nothing whatever came of It. There are
no Insurgent troops In the neighborhood
of Panama City. The report that they
had left Chorrera Is not believed now.
In a word, the condition of affairs In
Panama Is normal. Tumaco, near the
Ecuadorian border, has fallen Into the
hands of the insurgents. During the
week the Chilean cruiser MInlstro Zon
teno ai rived In Panama road with an
envoy entraordinary on board, accredited
to Ecuador and the Central American
Republic. They remained two days and
then sailed for Costa Rica. The French
cruiser Protet remains the only man-of-war
In the harbor besides the Iowa. The
British gunboat Icarus is at Taboga.
Very respectfully, THOMAS PERRY,
"Captain United States Navy, Com
manding United States Steamship Iowa."
"United States Steamship Machlas,
Colon, Republic of Colombia, Oct. 29,
1001. Sir: I have to report the usual
quiet conditions prevailing In Colon and
along the north coast of the Isthmus.
The Colombian gunboat Plnzon made a
round trip to Bocas del Toro during the
week, touching at intermediate ports,
and she reports all quiet to the west. I
enclose papers showing to what miser
able straits the local authorities have
been reduced to raise funds, and am
surprised that the steamship companies
cannot agree to protest. If this path
is once opened to collect the sinews of
war and no protests are made, there Is
no limit to the annoyance which will fol
low and traffic over the railroad would
be seriously Interfered with. This reso
lution doubles the harbor duties, which
are lumped together and called 'the com
mercial contribution'; If meekly acqui
esced In. steamship lines might be di
verted "from running here, which would,
of course. Injure the traffic on the rail
road. The department has been informed
as to the various ways by which the
local authorities have raised funds, such
as hypothecating all the duties from the
Panama Railroad Company for six
months to come, adding 20 per cent, and
then doubling the customs duties on all
articles and levying 'war faxes' or as?
sessments on all solvent Colombians.
These measures, if taken by the Republic
of Colombia, and enforced throughout,
would perhaps be justifiable as war
measures. But when associated with the
discontent almost amounting to revolt
amongst the soldiers because of no pay,
It looks as though the funds being raised
are for some other purpose than sup
pressing the revolution.

the civil and military chief of the De

panies. This decree affects all lines of
steamers calling at this port (and at
the Port of Panama.) As most of them
have agencies (for passenger and freight)
at Panama it means doubling the contri

5100 sliver per month for each terminal
for every steamship line having more than
two arrivals at Colon per month. It goes
without saying that all steamship agents

Measurement ot That of the Leading
WASHINGTON, Nov. 7. An accurate
measurement of the commerce of the prin
cipal countries of the world at the pres
ent time Is afforded by some figures, pub
lished by the Treasury Bureau of Statis
tics in the September number of the
Monthly Summary of Commerce and Fi
nance. The statement 1b in the form of a
table showing the commerce of 30 leading
countries of the world during such part
of the fiscal year of each of the countries
as is available from their latest official re
ports. Owing to the fact that hte fiscal
years of the countries differ In their dates
of termination, the statement Is in some
cases for a six months' period, In other
cases for eight, and In other cases for
U or 12 months. In order to- furnish a
basis for comparison, of the volume of the
commerce of the various countries the
Bureau of Statistics gives the average
monthly import and export during the
part of the fiscal year covered in the
statement for each of the 30 countries In
This statement of the average monthly
value of the imports and exports of the
30 countries furnishes a fair basis of com
parison of the commerce of the countries
one with another, and an. opportunity to
compare the imports with the exports,
and thus determine whether the excess, or
"balance of trade," Is on the import or ex
port side.
An examination of the full list of coun
tries shows that in two-thirds of the num
ber the Imports exceed the exports, and
that In one-third of the number the ex
ports are greater than the Imports. The
countries which show an excess of ex
ports over Imports are: Argentina, Austria-Hungary.
Brazil, Chile, British In
dia, Mexico, Roumanla, European Russia,
the United States and Uraguay. The
countries showing an excess of Imports
over exports are: Belgium, Canada, Cape

Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Italy,
Japan, Netherlands, Norway, the Philip

Asiatics Must Be Kept Out, Sayn a
CORVALLIS, Or.TNov. s! (To the Edi
tor.) As there Is so much being said pro
and con concerning the re-enactment of
the Geary law, known as the "Chinese
exclusion act," I wish to add my strong
approval of your editorial favoring Its re
enactment. There are probably hundreds
of reasons why this law should be ex
tended while there can, In reality, not be
a single good cause shown why It should
not be.
The principle causes which gnvo rise
to the necessity for- this law originated
In California, and Inclaentally In Oregon
and Washington, I believe, when
these people were simply flooding the
state to tho great detriment of the labor
ing ;people as well as to society. The
same causes exlat today as existed ten
years ago. The conditions arc the tame,
If not worse. There aro possibly many
thousands more Chinese on this Coast
now than there were ten years ago, and
thousands of Japanese and other Asiatics
are coming thick and fast, until they are
sapping the life-blood of white labor.
Everyone at all familiar with the condi
tions in California (I use that state as
a basis because I formerly lived there and
know the sad conditions existing there),
will agree with me that It Is almost Im
possible for a poor white man or woman
or American to obtain a day's work or
Job of any kind where th'ere Is a China
man or Jap to be had. And they are al
ways In sight If an honest white laborer
Is employed at all he must place himself
upon a level with the low grade of for
eigners, and work for the same price, us
ually about 50 cents per day, and board
himself. It is estimated that there are
100,000 unemployed white people In Cali
fornia. All the large fruit ranches, farms and
vineyards; most all hotels and restaurants,
sugar plantations and sources of employ
ment are being run" with Chinese and
Japanese laborers in place of Americans.
It Is the wealthy ranchers and corpor
ations, and not the great body of people,
who are clamoring for the suspension of
the "exclusion act," or for the open door
policy for the Introduction of more for
eigners to the detriment of our own Amer
ican laborers.
Let the people of Oregon and Washing
ton unite and heartily co-operate with
the masses of California in demanding the
re-enactment of the "exclusion act," and
let It be broad enough and deep enough
to Include all kinds of Asiatic paupers,
and make It more stringent, If possible,
than the present law. It should be made
a heavy penalty for any corporation or
steamship company transporting or smug
gling Into, or landing on American soli, or
In any port, any Chinaman or Japanese,
or other foreign pauper laborer In viola
tion of law, and may the watchword be
"American labor for American laborers."

He May Be Prosecuted There on
Charge of Forffery or Passing
Forged Bank Notes.
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 8. John Rose, sus
pected of the robbery of an express car
on the Great Northern Railway near
Wagner, Mont, July 3 last, and who was
arrested In this city by detectives Tues
day, was today Identified as Harry Long
baugh, a celebrated Western desperado.
The Identification was made by a St. Lous
man, who desires his name, withheld from
publication. He was prosecuting attor
ney for Cook County, Wyoming, In 1887,
and prosecuted Longbaugh In that year
on a charge of horsestealing. Longbaugh
was convicted and sentenced to IS months
in Jail. The ex-prosecutlng attorney de
scribed to Chief Desmond the distinguish
ing marks of the Longbaugh of 1SS7 and
as these are all found on the, prisoner,
he is satisfied, that he has the bandit
properly identified. Chief Desmond said
tonight that he would, If necessary, send
for one of the officers of Wagner, Mont.,
at the department's expense, to come here
and Identify Longbaugh.
"We can prosecute him here. If neces
sary," said the Chief, "either In the Fed
eral Court on a cha'rge of forgery or In
tho state courts onv a charge of uttering
a fraudulent Instrument In this way we
are bure to be able to hold him here until
we can thoroughly Investigate his rec
Snrety Companies Will Make Up the
Shortage of the Maccabce Official.
PORT HURON, Mich., Nov. 8. It now
transpires that the Fidelity & Deposit
Company, of Maryland, which carried the
bond of Charles D. Thompson, the self
confessed defaulting supreme finance
keeper of the tent of the Knights of the
Maccabees', although being released last
July, Is still liable for any loss which
the order may have sustained by the de..
falcatlon. Representatives of the com
pany. It Is eald, have Informed Maccabee
officials that the loss will bo pald. There
fore, It is now probable that Tiompson
will be arrested tomorrow. This was Indi
cated tonight from a talk with officials
of tho order, and the arrest will come
as a result of a conference between the
trustees of the order and representatives
of the bonding company. The heaviest
loss, It Is said, falls upon the Maryland
Fidelity Company, as Thompson's defal
cations since August, when the National
Surety Company assumed the risk, were
comparatively small. It was announced
today that Thompson's shortage was
160,000, instead of $57,000. All data con
cerning the embezzlement are In the hands
of the bond companies, and orders are
being awaited from headquarters. The
most important matter for consideration
before the trustees was the selection of a
successor for Thompson, but no successor
was announced.

PHOENIX, Ariz., Nov. 8.-One bandit
killed and one wounded was the result
of an. attempt by three masked rob
bers to hold up the gambling-house of
Deel & Co., last night at Maco, a small
but tough Arizona border town. The
dead bandit has been identified as Will
Cravens, of Dog Springs, N. M. He
was a cow puncher, with a fair record,
and a member of a wealthy and re
spectable New Mexico family. Cravens
approached the roulette table and pro
ceeded to fill a bag with the bank roll,
amounting to several thousand dollars.
'E. P Ellis whipped out a revolver, be
fore the movement was detected by the
robbers, and Cravens fell dead when
he shot. The other bandits were de
moralized and fled in disorder. One of
them was wounded by another bullet
from Ellis' revolver. They reached their
horses and fled to the mountains.

OMAHA, Nov. 8. The jury in the case
of James Callahan, after being out 36
hours, brought in a verdict at 10 o'clock
tonight, finding the defendant not guilty
and the prisoner was discharged. This Is
the last echo of the Cudahy kidnaping
case, and Callahan Is acquitted of the kid
naping charge. It was said tonight that
thero Is little to prevent Pat Crowe from
coming to Omaha. The evidence on which
Callahan has been tried would probably
prevail In case of Crowe being tried on
the same charges, and County Attorney
Shields tonight gave It as his opinion that
Crowe would now return.

PORTLAND, NOv. 8. (To the Editor.)
In your editorial of this morning, headed
"Theft- Awful Punishment," and referring
to the great Democratic loss of repre
sentation In the United States Senate,
you say that "every one of these men
has been sacrificed on the silver Baal,
either because he would not swear to a
He or else becauso silver drove his party
from power." Are you noi laboring under
a very grave goldbug hallucination? If
devotion to the use of sliver as standard
money provokes defeat, where would the
Republican party Itself be, which In Its
National platform of 18S3 declared that
"the Republican party Is In favor of the
use of both gold and sliver as money, and
condemns the policy of the Democratic
Administration In Its efforts to demon
etize sliver"? Here, perhaps, with this
question for you to answer, I might stop,
but I would like to call attention to some
very Important facts presented by United
States Treasurer Roberts in his report of
October 31, in which he gives during the
of gold , $88,000,000
Increase of sliver 37,000,000
Increase of notes and certificates
(nearly) .. 16.000,000
Shipment from Treasury of stand
ard silver dollars 3S,38S,o;9
In tho report he also mentions the very
remarkable fact that during the year there
was also shipped from the Treasury In
even exchange for gold, the sliver being
preferred In order to move crops, stand
ard silver dollars
To New Orleans $2,250,000
To New York 2,215,000
The people of the whole Nation should
give credit to the Republican party for
recognizing silver as standard moneyt and
for coining the Treasury silver bullion Into
standard sliver dollars. The wisdom of
that policy has been vindicated by the
increase in National prosperity resulting
from an Increase In the volume of sound
gold and sliver standard money. X.
The Republican party was weak on sil
ver, as welj as the Democratic, the differ
ence being apparently that It could aban
don an error, while the Democrats could
not. The correspondent's Impression tht
recent legislation Is In the direction v..
the silver standard Is diverting, perhaps,
but not of great significance.
