YIELDS TO THREATS
Negro Postmistress in South
Forced to Resign.
PRESIDENT TAKES ACTION
Be Defends the Woman and Con
demns Conduct of Laivlem Whites
Who Drove Her Out Postofflce
Closed uud Will Remain So.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 2. The feature of
the Cabinet meeting today was the de
cision to close permanently the postofflce
at Indianola, Miss., from which the post
mistress, Minnie M. Cox, colored, resigned
under compulsion a few days ago, since
which time the office has been closed.
The bondsmen have brought the attention
of the authorities here to the matter, with
a view to being relieved of the responsibil
ity of the accumulated mail.
The Postmaster-General has had a thor
ough investigatio made, and has become
satisfied that the woman was obliged to
resign under duress in fact, that her life
was endangered. Having represented this
state of affairs to the Cabinet, after a
long discussion, the decision above noted
was reached, and the office will not be re
opened until the people in the district are
ready to accept this woman as their post
mistress. During the afternoon the President dis
cussed with several members of the Cab
inet other features of the case of Mrs.
Cox, Postmaster-General Payne being In
conference with the President for an hour
or more. It was decided Anally to issue a
formal statement concerning the Indian
ola case. Secretary Cortelyou, for the
President, made public the following:
Statement of the Facts.
"The Postmaster at Indianola, Miss.,
Is Mrs. Minnie W. Cox, a colored woman.
She served three years as Postmaster un
der President Harrison. When President
McKinley came in, she was again appoint
ed in 1S97, nearly six years ago. Her char
acter and standing In the community are
Indorsed by the best and most reputable
people in the town. Among those on her
bond Is the present Democratic State Sen
ator from the district, together with the
leading banker of Indianola and an ex
State Senator from the district, also a
Democrat. The Postmaster and her hus
band own from 510,000 to $15,000 worth of
property in Sunflower County.
"The reports of Postofflce Inspectors
who have investigated the office from
time to time show that she has given the
utmost satisfaction to all patrons of 4he
office. She at all times was courteous,
faithful, competent and honest in the dis
charge of her duty; her moral standing
In the community Is of the highest, her
reputation is of the best; few offices of
this grade in the state are conducted bet
ter. Resigned ThrouB" Terror.
"The Postmaster recently forwarded hor
resignation, to take effect on January 1,
but the report of Inspectors and Informa
tion received from various reputable white
clltizcns of the neighborhood show that
the resignation was forced by a brutal
and lawless element, partly upon the
ground of her color, and was obtained
under terror of threats. The Mayor of
the town and the Sheriff of the county
both told the Postofflce Inspector that, if
she refused to resign, they could not be
answerable for her safety, but, at the
same time, not a word Is said against her.
On January 1 the bondsmen of the Post
master telegraphed that the postofflce
was closed; that the Postmaster claimed
that her resignation was in the Presi
dent's hands, to take effect January 1,
and that there had been no advice of the
appointment of her successor. The tele
gram closed with the statement, 'prompt
action necessary by the President, for the
protection of business interests, which
are being injured solely by the action of
the lawless element of the town. Is wholly
secondary to the preservation of law and
order and the assertion of the fundament
al principle that this Government will not
connive with or tolerate wrong and out
rage of such flasrant character.'
"By direction of the President, the fol
lowing was sent to the bondsmen:
" 'The Postmaster's resignation has been
received, but pot accepted. In view of the
facts, the postofflce at Indianola will be
closed. All mall for that place will be
'forwarded to Greenville. The case will
be referred to the Attorney-General,' "

SURPLUS OP TEN MILLIONS.
Revenue Persists in Exceeding Ex
Itcnses In December.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. The monthly
comparative statement of Government re
ceipts and expenditures shows that for
the month of December, 1902, the total re
ceipts were $47,151,299 and the expenditures
$36,513,744, leaving a surplus for the month
of $10,018,000. The receipts for the month
are about $100,000 in excess of those for
December, 190L and the expenditures
$785,000 less than for that month.
The receipts from the several sources
of revenue are given as follows: Cus
toms, $23,670,974. an increase over Decem
ber, 1991. of about $2,630,003: internal reve

about $l,213,m For the first half of the
present fiscal year a surplus is shown of
$24,734,000, as against a surplus of $42,
621,897 for the corresponding period last
Although the receipts from the Internal
revenue are less than for December, 190L
the amount of the decrease is surprisingly
small, and it is a noteworthy fact that
in some of the larger revenue districts the
total collections are greater than they
were before the war tax was removed, on
July 1, 1902.
TO BE TRIED FOR BRIBERY

Tonn Dnnlnp Is Accused of Poison
ing Allic Dool.
AXiEDO. 111., Jan. 2. The fate of Tona
Dunlap, charged with the murder of Allle
Dool, was submitted to the Jury tonight.
The case, which has been on trial for
several weeks, is the outgrowth of a
tragedy that has excited the people of this
community since early last Summer.
Allie Dool, clerk In a general store here,
died suddenly after eating chocolate can
dy that had been given to her by Tona
Dunlap. The only motive alleged by the
prosecution for the crime charged was
that Tona Dunlap hoped to succeed Allle
Dool in the store clerkship, a position pay
ing only $5 a week. The testimony de
veloped the fact that Miss Dunlap and
another young woman had eaton candy
taken from the same paper bag and
neither suffered injury.

PREFERS AN AMERICAN.
Castro Sbovred Aversion to Hapae
Tribunal, lint Must Accept.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. The condition
which President Castro attached to his
response to the allies' arbitration proposal
was in the nature of an alternative propo
sition. Almost from the beginning showing
an aversion to The Hague tribunal, Cas
tro, while accepting the principle of ar
bitration, asked that the case be tried
b yone of the American republics. As
President Roosevelt already had declined
to act in the capacity of arbitrator, and
as some of the reasons which Inspired
him in his declination would apply with
equal force to the Chief Executive of any
other American state than the United
States, he was obliged to withhold any
Indorsement of this proposition of Presi
dent Castr'o. Therefore, it may be dis
missed from the field of possibilities, and
unless Castro is unexpectedly Insistent
upon his own plan, the original propo
sition In reference to The Hague tribunal

gotiations will be required tp bring the
parties to a final agreement, but it is not
doubted that this will succeed.

IRON AND STEEL IMPORTS
GREAT INCREASE IN . ELEVEN
MONTHS OF 1002.
ThouKh Home Production Enormous
ly Increased, It Was Not En ouch
' to Snpply Great Demand.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. The unexampled
demand in the United States for manufac
tures of iron and steel, to which allusion
has frequently been made of late, is il
lustrated by tjhe etatlstics of the importa
tion of iron and steel manufactures Just
issued by the Treasury Bureau of Statis
tics; these figures cover 11 months of the
year 1902, and show that the importations
during that time are more than double. In
value, those of the corresponding months
of the preceding year, and Indicate that
for the full calendar year 1502 the total
value of Iron and etcel Imports will be
fully $40,000,000, or more than in any j-ear
in a full decade.
The Iron and steel manufacturers of the
United States have prided themselves up
on their ability to fully supply the home
market and produce a considerable sur
plus for exportation. That they were
making great gains in this direction until
the exceptional demand of recent years, la
evidenced from the fact that imports of
iron and steel manufactures, which
amounted to $67,000,000 in 1882, and $53,000,
000 in 1S91 had steadily fallen since the
latter date until they were only $12,000,000
In 1899. In 1900, however, there was a
slight Increase, but tho figures of 1902, as
already Indicated, will exceed those of any
year since 1E9L This Increase is the more
remarkable In view of the fact that the
piglron production and the iron and steel
production generally In the United States
was far greater in the year 102 than In
any preceding year, the total production
of piglron being estimated at fully 17,500.000
tons, against 15.878.000 tons In 1901. which
was the highest figure ever recorded prior
The increase In Imports occurs In prac

WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. The figures of
the foreign commerce of the United States
during the 11 months ending with Novem
ber, which have just been completed by
the Treasury Bureau of Statistics, Indi
cate a phenomenal activity among the
manufacturers of the country, and ex
portatlons quite as large as could be ex
pected In view of the crop shortage of
last year. The value of manufacturers'
materials Imported Into the United States
during the 11 months ending with Novem
ber of last year Is $I07,G03,599, against
5353,417,2SS In the corresponding months of
the previous year, and forms 46l per cent
of the total Imports, against 44 per cent
of the total Imports In the corresponding
months of the year before.
Manufactures exported during the 11
months of 1002 amount to $377,635.M1,
against J3C2.332.1S1 In the corresponding
months of 1901. and form 3L8 per cent of
the total, against 27.8 per cent of tho total
exports In the same months of 1901. The
total lmDorts arc J75.O0O.00O in excess of l
those for the corresponding months of I
1801. and of this Increase of JTo.OOO.OGO, $54.-
000,000 was in the clas3 "manufacturers'
materials" and the remainder manufac
tures and luxuries, articles of food and
animals showing a reduction of JIO.OOO.OOO
as compared with the Importations dur
ing the corresponding months of 1901.
Nearly all of the great articles required
for use In manufacturing, with the single
exception of India rubber, show a marked
Increase in Importations. Importations of
raw silk, for example, amount to $10,505.-
333 In the 11 months of last year, against
$3o,411,CQ0 In the corresponding period of
1H)1: hides and skins, J33.022.521. against
J50.S77.797 in tho 11 months of 1301; tin for
use in manufacturing tlnplate. J13.532.S07.
against J17,415,S02 In the corresponding
months of 190L India rubber importations
show a slight falling oft. the total for
11 months being J22.56S.7S6 last year.
against J2a,929,3S5 In the same months of
The most striking increase in Importa
tions Is in manufactures of iron and steel,
which amount, for the U months, to J3G,-
766.961 In value, against J18.267.S77 In the
corresponding months of 1901. the value
of the importations having thu3 more
than doubled last year as compared with
the previous year. Practically every Item
in the list of Iron and steel manufactures
shows a marked Increase. The export
ngures of iron and steel manufactures
show a reduction, the total exports for
the u months being JO0.13C.O24 last year,
against J94,091,957 In the same months of
1901 and J119,C04,848 In the 11 months of
The total exportation of the 11 months
falls J116.000.000 below that of the corre
sponding period of 1901. This reduction
occurs In agricultural products, of which
tne exportatlons during the 11 months of
last year fall J130.000.000 below those of
1S01, indicating that in the other great
classes, especially manufactures, there Is
an Increase. This reduction of J130.000,000
In agricultural exports is due in part to
the increased home demand, in part to
rne loss or a part of the corn croD of
1901, corn exportatlons having fallen
from J49,o01,374 In 11 months of 1301 to
J6.745.151 In the corresponding months of
last year. There is also a considerable
reduction in the value of wheat exDorted.
due to the fact that 1901 exportatlons
were exceptionally large.
