Diplomatic Xegotlatlona Be tire en tho Ttto Countries Resumed Austria Also Gains a Point. PARIS, Nov. 10. The French Foreign Office has announced that the Sultan has signed an irade for the execution of his engagements with the French Government and that the Franco-Turkish dispute Is now at an end. Tcwflk Pasha, Ottoman Minister of Foreign Affairs,' wrote, a let ter to 1L Bapst, councillor of the French Embassy in Constantinople, notifying him of the signing of the irade, which, while settling the original French demands, ac cepts the French demands as set forth In a dispatch to the Temps from Con stantinople Friday and cabled to the As sociated Press, together with an addi tional olauae, by which the Sultan pledges himself to consider as authorized in full right the foundations, extensions, con structions and repairs of the schools and religious and hospital establishments which France may dosire to carry out. If the Porte la advised of her intentions and makes no objections within five months. France thus far has received full satis faction, and II. Delcasse, on the re ceipt of M. Bapst's dispatch this morn ing, telegraphed him to inform Tewflk Pasha that diplomatic relations had been resumed and that M. Bapst should con sider himself as regularly charged with the affairs of the embassy. Instructions were also sent to Admiral Caillard at Mitylenc to re-embark the marines and to return to Greek waters, which Is un derstood to mean tho vicinage of the Island of Syra. Admiral Caillard will re main in the Levant some time longer. M. Const&ns, the French Ambassador, will return to Constantinople -ery shortly. The additional clause was conceded at the request of France In order to prevent future difficulties such as the Turkish provincial authorities have often raised either on their own initiative or in con sequence of instigation by the Porte. The Temps, which describes the result as "a brilliant victory for French diplo macy," eays: "The great merit of the government was In being able to restrict Its action. Very serious difficulties might have arisen had France kept from her reserve. The fav orable disposition shown to our repre sentations abroad has been due to the fact that the civilized world has had an opportunity during the last seven years to observe the progress of the anti European movement In the Sultan's coun cils. Frenchmen, Americans, Austrians, Italians and Britons have all beon victim ized by the Sultan and his councillors. After the Armenian massacres and the successful war with Greece, they thought everything was permitted to them. "We hope the Sultan will now under stand his duties toward the civilized pow ers and toward his own subjects, unto whom he has taken solemn engagements which he has always disregarded. Other wise, Europe, which, thanks to the ener getic action of France, is now able to re assume at Constantinople the authority .she lost seven years ago, will applaud the Initiative whioh the signatory powers of the Berlin treaty are reported to be about to take to extort from the Sultan the exeoution of clauses too long fallen into disuse," Comments of the Paris Dailies. PARIS, Nov. 11. Tho morning paper.., in their comments upon the termination of the Franco-Turkish incident, follow party lines strictly. The supporters of the government hail the outcome as a great diplomatic, moral and material success. Other journals either affect scepticism with reference to the final outcome or as sume that It Is reall a check disguised under the more or less Illusory conces sions promised by the Sultan. Some pa pers even hint that France has actually backed down, owing to the coolness with hlch the powers have received her ex planations rogardlng the objects and scope of the naval demonstration. "We hope the demonstration Awlll be sufficient to restore forever theprestlge of France In the East," says the Figaro. "Doubtless the very near future will show If so great a result has been obtained so cheaply." The Gaulois, while admitting that a suc cess has been achieved, romarks;. "The instability of the government ana the .contradictions of its diplomacy are such that even the Sultan thought there was no risk In treating the French like mere Armenians. The Mitylcne expedition Is said to have disabused him, but must we always mobilize a fleet In order to force a foreign nation to respect us?" The Soleil remarks: "We have another promise added, to so many. Wc are some what in a hurry in announcing the end of the Franco-Turkish conflict," The Petit Parlsen, which voices the view of the government, says: "It is for France a considerable diplomatic success. The rapidity and precision of the move ment of the squadron was a military suc cess which Europe has noticed." Austria Also Gains a Point. CONSTANTINOPLE, Nov. 10. Baron de Calice, tho Austro-Hungarlan Ambas sador, has secured from the Porte a sat isfactory settlement of several questions that were pending between Turkey and Austria-Hungary. RUSSIAN CROP REPORT. The Yield of All Grains Is Below the Average. ST. PETERSBURG. Oct. 27. The Min istry of Agriculture today presented Us annual Autumnal crop report for Euro pean Russia. All crops were below aver age. It is said, and in some parts of t the East and South "they were bad, in places very bad." The staple grain, rye, was particularly deficient. Winter wheat was "bad" In the Don Province, Yekaterinos laff Poland and the Baltic provinces, and good only in the Southwest. AH Summer grains were below average, and ranged from "bad to very bad" in the East and Southeast, Summer wheat and oats being notably deficient. Barley and millet turned out somewhat better, peas and buckwheat, flax and hemp "bad." Po tatoes were nearer the average, but suf fered with other breadstuff's. The unfa vorable season was aided by field mice and by othe.r jjests. The total estimated yield of various grains in European Rus sia, including Cls-Caucasla and Poland, in poods (36 pounds), was as follows: Rye 1,100,895,003 Wheat C5L474.O0O Oats 5315,574,000 Barley 304,849,000 Millet 92,557,000 The deficient harvests of ISOO caused a shrinkage of 1.000,000 rubles In the in come from the payment of -peasants for their lands, and the Minister of Finance Is resohed materially to diminish the estimated receipts for this source In the next budget. The government appears fully conscious of the added responsibility that It has as sumed by virtually excluding private per sons and associations from participation in relief measures. Every effort Is being made to discover and mitigate suffering, and It is stated the Governor of Saratoff has organized In the district of Khav llnsk a special relief commission. The Red Cross will open free casting-houses and direct the medical relief. The Russian leader writers have put President Roosevelt and the United States on the list of their regular themes. Scarce ly a day passes without some newspaper devoting a serious editorial to the de velopment of the political and economic power of the United States. This, in itself. Is gratifying, but what is more so is that nearly ail tne papers are sympa. thetlc and many display accurate Insight into American affairs. The Bourse Ga zette had the following a day or two ago: "The statesman who has unexpectedly assumed the reins at Washington is the perfect type of the American of today, and before him lies a wider horizon than any of his predecessors enjoyed. Between the United States of our day and the Re public of which the history of the last century told us, there Is little In com mon. The classic land pf freedom, the country which has dovcloped Its prosper ity to wonderful dimensions and which has realized the boldest Utopia and the most daring theories qf political and social liberty, the great trans-Atlantic Republic terrifies the Imagination of Europeans,. It Is a new giant, a state which the latest events have made a world power, a state which has transformed Itself to the point of recognlzabillty and is bent upon trans forming tho whole world, proclaiming through its new Chief Magistrate that the word of the United States shall have due weight everywhere where economic and political questions are decided." AMERICAN SCHOONER SEIZED. "Was Aiding- Partacracsc to Avoid Military Service. LONDON, Nov. 10. The Exchange Tele graph o,mpany has received a dispatch from Lisbon announcing that a Portuguese gunboat has seized the American schoon er Nettle and Lottie at Horta, Island of Fayal, in the Azores, for clandestinely conveying 26 emigrants who were trying to avoid military service. Plan for a Vigorous Campaign. LONDON, Nov. 11. According to the Dally News, Major-General Ian Hamilton, who sailed Saturday for South Africa to act as Lord Kitchener's chief of staff, takes a plan prepared In London for a more vigorous campaign with a viow of ending the war before tho coronation fes tivities begin. "General Hamilton's appointment," says the Dally News, "Is part of a plan ar ranged after the King's return from the Continent about six weoks ago. Unless Lord Kitchener should decline to be com plaisant, the new scheme Is likely to de velop about the beginning of the year." Capo Colony "Will Contribute. LONDON, Nov. 10 In a letter dated October 23, the Capo Town correspondent of tho Dally Mall says: "Lord Kitchener and Sir John Gordon Sprlgg (the Cape Premier) have arranged a scheme for the expulsion of the invad ers of Cape Colony. A joint commission of Imperial and colonial, military chiefs has been sitting here for some days past to draft a scheme. It Is understood that this provide s for the colony taking a large share in the future campaign and contrib uting largely towards its cost. Apparent ly a levy of Loyalists en masse is the Idea Involved." Election Disturbances at Barcelona. BARCELONA, Nov. 10. The municipal elections here today were attended by bloodshed and excitement.

(Continued from First Page) the city taken up by the diminutive barks Werra and Harry Morse, and the French bark Bourbakl. In the lower harbor, lined up ready for sea, were the British ship Nelson, German ship Rickmer Rick- mers, iJHtlsn snip La.ay lsaociia, ana French bark MareChal Davout, which have been lying there for periods varying from a few hours to over two weeks. Not one of these vessels suffered any deten tion in the river, and the lighterage of the entire flcot did not make half a load for one of the towboats whioh took the ship down. The Leyland Brothers dropped anchor be low Smith's Point shortly after noon Fri day, and three hours lajer the few tons of lighterage which the R. R. Thompson had brought down for her was on board and she was ready for sea. "With six ships ahoad of her, and trouble brewing in tho offing, there Is not much chance for her to get to sea before the middle of the week. River Delays Unimportant. The trifling delays between Portland and Astoria do not bother the shipmasters visiting Portland, but they are making uncomplimentary remarks about tho bar at the mouth of tho river. The Columb.a. has broken from the restraint placed orr It when the jetty was completed, and the old south channel is washing out again, until there 13 almost as much water to ea by that channel as there Is by the main channel now In use. This -water can be confined and forced back into the main channel by the extension of the Jetty, and" when this is done the channel will bo scoured out to as great a depth as 19 needed. Sixty miles farther up the river the water is forced In between rock wall9 or hard clay banks, and it has scoured out a channel from 50 to 150 feet deep In places. The same results can be securett at the mouth of the river is the stream is kept in the proper bounds. A jetty can be made long enough and strong enough to give a depth of 50 to GO feet of water on the Dar, and this depth will be 'needed as quickly as it is possible to se cure It. m ii ...

Wide Variation In tne Cost and Sell ing Price During: the Past Eleven Years. WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. The Industrial Commission today Issued a special report on an Investigation conducted by the com mission regarding the cost and selling price of iron and steel products from 1890 to IDOL The statement shows that in 1SW the cost of steel rails ranged from 525 93 to $34 52; in 18S1, from ?24 15 to J25 68; in 1892, from 522 65 to $24 S2; in 1893. from 519 20 to 522 62: In 1634. from 517 70 to $21 29; in 1895, from 516 68 to 525 47; in 1896, from $17,72 to 520 69; In 1897, from 515 91 to 517 62; in 189S, from 516 67 to 51T 81; in 1899, from 518 11 In January, to 535 62 in December; In 1900, from 536 12 In February, to ?21 83 In October; In 1901, from 521 54 to 525 98. According to the showing made, there was a margin .In the selling price over the cost price fbr every year from 1890 up to July of 189S. The highest margin was in 1896, and averaged from 57 31 to 510 2G a ton. In July, 1898. a loss of 5 cents per ton Is noted, the cost price being 517 B as against a selling price of 517. Again, In June. 1899, when the cost price was $27 62, there was a loss of 37 cents. In July of that year the loss was 51 15 on a cost price of 529 76; 51 15 on a cost price of 532 15, and In September 51 48 on a cost price of 533 96. A loss of about 51 per ton is also reported for the months of January, February, March, Aprl' and May, of 1900. when the cost price ranged over 536 per ton. Losses also are claimed on steel billets for most of the year 1900, and for the first four months of 1901. A loss Is recorded for the year 1900, arftt for tho first four months of 1S01. A loss i3 recorded for every month In 1898 on billets. Looses are recorded for the first three months of 1900 on pig-iron. The low est cost of production for pig-iron was recorded In 1894, when it was 58 5 per ton. In 1900 the cost of pjg-lrqn was 515 SS. Commenting In a general way, the commission says: "Beyond question there have been steady Improvements in the methods of manu facture tending to reduce the cost of labor and incidentals per unit of product. On the other hand, the advancp of wages from 1S99 to 1801, especially as compared with the years Immediately preceding, no regard to which has been given in making up the figures, may In part have offset the reduction through such improvements. In any case the comparison as to cqsts will not bu greatly vitiated by inaccuracy In the Items of labor and incidentals, since these represent a comparatively small proportion of the cost of transforming tho respective raw materials into finished products." The variation in prices is commented on as follows; "Probably the most conspicuous fact shown in the diagrams Ib tho very rapid and wido variations in the prices of all three of the products compared, and most of all in tho prices of pig-iron. Even in the earlier years, not covered by the dia grams, the price statistics show similar sharp fluctuations. The dia grams herewith presented bring out the great and sudden decline in the prices of all these products during tho year 1890. This was followed by a long and gradual fall, which brought the price of pig-lrpn down from $16 at the beginning of 1S91 to 510 at the end of 1S24. A sudden sharp rls,c in the prices of all three products Is seen In 1895, but this was followed by an almost equally rapid decline, and during 1897 and 1898 tho prices stood practically at a bottom figure. The most noticeable movement shown In the diagram Is that during 1899, when the price of pig-iron rose from 510 to $25, and the price of rails from $17 to $33. Almost equally sudden and very great, however, was the decline In the prices of these products, especially billets and pig-iron, during the latter part of 1900. Since that time there has been a recovery which leaves the prices of all the three products considerably higher than for the years 1S9Q and 1898, ''These often sudden and violent fluc tuations show, among other indications, the great changes in the demandMor iron and steel products from time to time, and the marked sensitiveness of prices to such changes In demand. No very large stock of iron and steel is usually held In ad vance, and when a period of prosperity causes a great extension of the uso of these products, the mills are often them selves temporarily unable to keep pace with the- demand, while buyers under certain conditions are willing to pay al most any price. "A noteworthy feature of the diagram regarding steel rails is the fact that the selling prices for considerable periods of lime throughout the decade covered by the flguros have been held uniform. This uniformity in prices is doubtless due to the existence of pools from time to time among the manufacturers, and the sudden changes following the periods of uniform ity are probably explicable, not so muoh by great changes in demand at the precise date of the change In prices, as by either the breaking of pools or the determina tion on the jmrt of their managers tnat the previously fixed prices were too high or too low." CIVILIZE THE INDIANS. Governor Murphy, of Arizona, Makes Some Recommendations. WASHINGTON. Nov. 10. Governor Murphy, of Arizona, in his annual report, advocates the sale and settlement of the large Indian reserves within the terri tory, with the possible exception of the Navajo reservation, In Northeastern Ari zona, and tlo Government construction of reservoirs for the storage of water for irrigation in suitable location, with canals leading to the lands allotted to the In dians. The Governor eays the latter ac tion, in which Indian labor could be large ly utilized, would help to make farmers of the Indians, and that further main tenance of the tribal relations, as now conducted, and the retention of reserva tion agencies, around Which the Indians cluster and live in idlenoss on Govern ment rations, seriously retards the civ ilization of the Indians. A number of localities in the territory are dissatisfied with the census, and the people say that Injustice was done to Phoenix In fixing its population at 5544 only. Its registration for the city election last May, he claims, Indicates a population this year of at least 10,000. He attributes the discrepancy of the figures to enumeration in the Summer, when the people were at Summer resorts, and to carelets work of enumerators. He says from the school census and other reliable sources the population of the territory is now at least 135,000, against the census returns of 122, 012. In the last decade 545 miles of canal have been coretructed, at a cost of $1,508,400, and Irrigated land "has Increased 119,575 acre3. Collector Dillon Removed. WASHINGTON, Nov. 10. Moses Dillon has been removed from the olflce of Collector .of Customs at El Paso, Tex., on account of charges of violation of the civil service- law. These charges were filed last Spring by the Civil Service League and have since been under in vestigation. They were endorsed by the Civil Service Commission. The specific charges were that Mr. Dillon was Instru mental in having questions in civil ser vice examination supplied in advance to candidates Tor appointments to places un der him, and also that he received con tributions for campaign purposes.

Among the matters that the committee will endeavor to have Congress take favorable action upon are rlvor and harbor improvements, Irrigation, forest reservations, establishment of a depart ment of mining and the building of the Nicaragua Canal. FOREIGN FINANCIAL CIRCLES Fall of Consols Partly Attributable to HlckS'Bcach'a Speech. LONDON, Nov. 10. The fall In consols, which is partially attributable to the speech of the Chancellor of tne Ex chequer, Sir Michael Hlqks-Bcach, fore shadowing Increased war taxes, caused everything to be dull 4urlng tho early part or last weep; put, owing to tne DrisK re vival In American railway securities, all the markets clceed better. It seems to most observera that It would take but lit tle to start a, good upward movement. With the exception of Americans, there has been little Increase In business, but the quickness with which the prices ral lied has encouraged a belief that better markets are in prospect. The Northern Pacific settlement Is the oubject of much discussion, especially as to whether It Is the beginning of a new boom. If so, tlm impression is that this would not receive much assistance on the European side of the Atlantic, as neither tho industrial, monetary nor political oondltlon of Eu rope would justify a confident attitude on the part of the Old World operators. Con tinental exchange has improved in the London point of view, and, therefore, there is no Immediate prospect of gold shipments from London. The demand for gold in the open market has also dimin ished. The price of bar gold shows a slight decline. The shipment of gold to 8outh Africa, whjch began with the with drawal of 118,000 week before last, seems likely to be larger than usual. It is recog nised here that the French demand for gold has not been entirely satisfied by New York shipments, and that it will be necessary to keep up rates In order to prevent the return of French capital. The Berlin Bonrse. BERLIN, Nov. 10. The Bourse has grown more stagnant, although values have only been maintained. Some coal and lrqn shares Improved several points on the week, but others fell off. All other Industrials were weaker. Ocean transpor tation shares experienced a new fall, Hamburg-American having declined 3.50 and North German Lloyd 4. The latter went below" par for the first time in flvi years, The Frankfurter Zeltung explains the declines by pointing to "the growing nTi!rHriT !- h Vinrl Inrtniitrinl sHlutN tion of Europe must eventually affect tho lines unfavorably." The Cologne Gazette argues that the competition of American anthraclto with German anthracite Is not t6 be feared. Inasmuch as the price of coal delivered to Rhine boats at Rotterdam is 29 marks for the American product, whereas the German mines offer the same quality at 23 marks. To this the Berliner Tageblatt replies that the continued. Imports of American anthraclto demonstrate tho abil ity of the Americans to compete, und it expresses a hope tliat the American com petition will compel the German produc ers to reduce prices to a point where Im ports can easily be stopped. The Frankfurter Zeltung reports that American speculators are Inquiring Whether this Is a favorable time to invest In German coal shares at the present re duoed prices, and that the answer is gen erally in the negative. "For this reason," says this journal, "the export of shares to the United States has nearly ceased, and thero Is only a very slight prospect of early resumption." American railway securities were quiet and interest wa3 confined chiefly to Northern Pacific, in which, however, real- izatlons ocourred toward the end of the week. The Vossische Zeltung admits that European bourses now more than ever need an impulse from Wall street, since thq United States is experiencing the al most universal depression to the least ex tent. The money market throughout the week was very easy, the tendency being more and more -favorable. Call loans were of fered at 2 to ZA per cent. HAVANA SfcWER CONTRACT Bid of MoGivney and Roclccby, of Jersey City, Accepted. HAVANA, Nov. 10. The Municipal Council of Havana has decided by a vote of 10 to 8 to accept the bid of S. P. Mc Givney and R. T. Rockeby, of Jersey City, which is ?10,S93,015, for the Havana sew ering and paving contract. Considerable feeling was manifested during the session over the circulation of a pamphlet Insin uating that the McGivney-Rockeby bid was really the bid of the engineers' de partment. The papers assert that Senor Tamayo, Secretary of State and Government, has been challenged to fight a duel by a mem ber of the Union Club whom, It le said, Senor Tamayo and a friend assaulted at the close of the recent banquet given by the Cuban Society to the visiting Chil eans. Senor Tamayo wns detained by the polico but ultimately released by the Civil Governor. The Democratic party has adopted Gen eral Bartqlome Maso a its candidate for tho Presidency of Cuba.

Another Steamer May Be Pnt on Be tween Astoria and Portland. ASTORIA, Nov. 10. A movement is un der way here to organize a company com posed wholly of Astoria business men to operate a freight steamer between this city and Portland. The reason given for the movement is the excessive freight rates charged by the transportation lines. About live months ago an advance In rates was made and the merchants are now paying nearly $600 per day on frelsht from Portland, whereas previous to that time it cost them but $200 on the same amount of goods. The promoters of the enterprie assert that $15,G00 per month is too great an amount to be paid as freight on the shipments from Portland to As toria, and as they can lease and operate a suitable steamer for not to exceed $2000 per month, they feel certain that every shipper of importance will become a member of the company.

He said In part: "The element of justice, nerving the outraged champions of liberty to heroic deods, is an ally more potent than ships and regiments in khaki. The uprisings in South Africa and the Philippines, both now extending into years, have baffled shortsighted statesmen who looked for their subsidence in a few weeks. Ireland and South Africa, common victims of English wrongs, are separated by wide seas and the barrier of language. Hap pily, tho sturdy burghers of the Trans vaal and the Orange Free State are able to speak with Irish lips In the House of Commons with uncompromising effect iveness. It 1s to the honor and glory of Ireland that in this crisis her representa tive sons havo stood a9 a bulwark for freedom."
