EGYPT OFFERS A FIELD
Vnitcd States Could Sell Agricul
tural Machinery and Autos.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 16. Special Agent
Charles M. Pepper, who was sent to
Kgypt to report upon the prospects for
increased trade with that country, in a
reoort to tha Bureau of Manufactures,
says the Imports from Egypt reached
nearly $10,000,000, and the average for
seven years was JT,758,66", while in return
direct shipments of goods from the Unit
ed States rarely exceeds $1,000,000, and in
some years have fallen below $500,000. The
total foreign commerce of Egypt in 1895
was a little more than $100,000,000. Mr.
Pepper said that it will In less than five
years amount to $250,000,000, one-half of
which will be imported goods.
There Is a wide demand in that coun
try, the report says, for machinery.
Dealers in Alexandria and Cairo assert
that manufacturers in the United States
offer no encouragement for the introduc
tion and sale of their goods, but there
Is no complaint that American machinery
is not equal in quality to that of Europe.
Because of the hot country the use of
agricultural machinery is encouraged,
and there Is a good field for American
manufactures in that direction, and eleo
trie lighting and the use of electricity
In other ways opens demand for materials
for such purposes. The demand for auto
mobiles and auto and motor cars In gen
eral Is an increasing one.
The majority of articles from all coun
tries pay a uniform duty of 8 per cent
ad valorem, and this uniform treatment
to all countries, the report says, should
make It comparatively easy for the Unit
ed States to greatly increase its rates in
Egypt. One thing necessary. It adds, is
the establishment of a steamship line.

Peaceful Manner in Which Affair Is
Carried Off, It Is Believed, Will
Have a Good Effect on
MONTEREY, Mex., Sept. 16. The cele
bration of Mexico's day of independence
was observed here today by general
merrymaking. At daybreak the national
flag was hoisted over all federal and
municipal buildings and a salute was
fired from the barracks. At 9 o'clock
the Governor, accompanied by his staff
and many prominent citizens, proceeded
to the Squares Theater, where they at
tended the reading of the declaration of
independence and the singing of the na
tional hymn by a prominent vocalist.
Band concerts were given on the
various plazas during the afternoon and
evening. This afternoon a grand mili
tary pageant participated In by thous
ands was formed and marched through
the principal streets of the cify. There
was not the slightest disorder and so
peacefully was the affair carried out that
the authorities say it will tend to coun
teract the effects of the rumors of an
anti-foreign feeling, which have been
rife for some months past.
No reports of trouble have been re
ceived from any point in the State of
Tamaulipas, Neuva Leon, or Coahuila,

MEXICANS CHEER ROOSEVELT
Name Is Linked With That of Diaz
In Speech at San Luis Potosi.
MEXICO CITY, Sept. 16. The national
holiday in celebration of the anniversary
of the independence of Mexico was ob
served In a most enthusiastic manner
here today. The decorations were on a
more elaborate scale than heretofore and
large crowds were congregated in the
parks to listen to the band concerts, and
those who participated In the grand civic
parade numbered several thousand. The
parade was three hours in passing a
given point where It was reviewed by
President Diaz. Vice-President Corral,
members of the Senate and Chamber of
Deputies, the diplomatic corps and promi
President Diaz opened Congress and de
livered his annual message. The utmost
tranquillity prevailed in this city, not a
single arrest having been made. The sa
loons have all been closed since yester
day at noon, a precaution taken by the
munlplcal authorities to circumvent any
possibility of trouble.
Reports from all points throughout the
country. Including the cities of Saltillo,
San Luis Potosi, Tampico, Torreon and
hundreds of other towns, show that not
the slightest disturbance marred the cele
bration. Patriotic speeches were on the
programme In the majority of the towns
and cities, platforms having been erected
In most Instances on the main plaza or
In front of the municipal buildings.
A most noteworthy celebration of the
day occurred at San Luis Potosi, where
one of the speakers referred to President
Roosevelt and spoke of the binding
friendship existing between the two coun
tries and especially referred to the part
played by the President of the sister Re
public In bringing about peace between
Honduras, Guatemala and Salvador dur
ing their recent trouble. Upon conclud
ing his speech the people present burst
out in a mighty roar of "vivas" for
Presidents Roosevelt .and Diaz. The
demonstration was perhaps the first in
the history of the country made in favor
of a foreign President.
San Luis Potosi has a good-sized Amer
ican colony, and the good feeling dli
nlavert bv the citizens of Mexico on their
holiday toward the Americans and their
President Is considered as one ot ine

said in his message that with almost all
civilized nations Mexico was on the most
friendly terms, while with no nation was
any question existing which even re
motely threatened conflict.
The long discussed question of an inter
national dam, in order to insure an equit
able distribution of water between farm
ers of the Rio Grande has taken satis
factory form In a treaty signed at Wash
ington. This treaty will be submitted to
the Mexican Senators for ratification.
The President mentioned the recent revo
lution in Guatemala and says that strict
neutrality was enforced.
The President merely mentioned the
Pan-American Conference and said that
It was to be hoped its resolutions would
produce a good effect.
Respecting the labor riot at Cananea In
June, the President said It began as a
labor movement, degenerating quickly
into grave perturbation of public order.
Fortunately it was quickly suppressed,
thus avoiding what might have been
The President also took up the recent
labor strikes, principally that which oc
curred on the Mexican Central Railway.
The strike was limited to the men leaving
their work In the shops with a view to
obtaining certain concessions from the
company. As they were clearly In their
right, the authorities respected it and
an official effort was used In preventing
any breach of peace. The executive ex
pects on the part of both capitalists and
working men regard for each other's
Sanitary precautions against yellow
fever continue. The railways now have
a total extension of 21,611 kilometers. The
finances of the nation are In a most
satisfactory condition. The total revenues
of the federation in the fiscal year were
more than $101,000,000. There will be a
substantial surplus when accounts are
made up to be applied to port work at
Salina Cruz and Coatzacoalcos.
The President notes with satisfaction
the entire success of the gold standard.
There has been coined and Is now in cir
culation gold money to the value of H3,
000.000, while the monetary commission
still has gold on hand to the amount of
J16.000.000 yet to be coined. The gold
standard has been attained without any
sacrifices having been needed on the part
of the nation.
In line of material progress the results
achieved are amply demonstrated by
statistics and show conclusively an aston
ishing movement on every line of busi
ness activity confirming the belief that
the country has fully entered on a bril
liant period of progress.

Mexican Government Wants Road.
MEXICO CITY. Sept. 16. It is general
ly understood that one of the principal
objects of the Finance Minister Laman
tour's trip to Europe Is to bring about
the acquisition of the Mexican Central
Railroad by the Mexican government and
this supposition Is strengthened to a con
siderable extent by the fact that Vice
President Richards, of the Mexican Cen
tral, has also gone to Paris.
The acquisition of the railroad Is a
thing which would mean great political
significance, as it is. believed that it Is
the only way the road can be regulated
in order to avoid discrimination in the
matter of rates.
Best of Feeling Prevails.
EI PASO. Sept. 16. So far as informa

will be about 12,000.000.
TWO-CENT FARES IN EAST
Western Governors Say Population
Is Too Sparse in Their Territory.
HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 16. S. M.
Williams, secretary of the Pennsylvania
State Board of Trade, today made pub
lic copies of letters received from the
Governors of several states on the
movement to obtain uniform legislation
throughout the United States for a 2
cent maximum fare on all steam rail
roads. A number of the Governors are
personally favorable to a 2-cent fare,
and, in a few Instances, they tell of the
movements in their states to obtain the
passage of such legislation In the next
session of the Legislature.
The Governors of some of the West
ern States say that because of the
sparsely-oettled condition of their
states the time is not yet ripe for a
radical reduction of fares, but that
such a reform will come about when
the pupulation increases to give the
business to Justify a. cut. The Western
Governors express their approval of the
movement so far as it applies to the
thickly-populated states of the East.
TT is a pleasure, even now more than usual, to tell about the
lovely hats shown in our Millinery Department, for we are
sure you will agree with us that they are exceptionally pretty.
Speaking through the press cannot convey any
idea of the wonderful colors, or the charming- de
tails of our styles. Words are not sufficient to do
justice to the advance showing. From the largest
