PORT NEEDS COAL.
Port Arthur Cannot Much Longer
Supply the Russian Ships.
Tsingtau, Sept. 24 Several col Mors
arrived here within the InBt ten days
It is believed their cargoes aio intend
cd for Port Arthur. Tho British col
lier Foxton Hall has transferred her
caigo of Cardiff coal to the German
steamer Erica, which tbo local author
ities would not allow to leavo until
aiven assurance that no attempt would
bo made to enter Port Arthur. The
Erica sailed at daylight, and Japan is
given as her destination, but it is bo
lieved she will ultimately -make for
Port Arthur, whero tho Russians aro
offering stupendous inducements for tho
dellvory of coal.
S. Davidson, an Amrlcan merchant,
who had a Russian coal contract and
was ordered to leavo Port Arthur on
Fobruary 16 last, is now at Tsingtau
Ho tells tho Associated Press corre
spondont that when he left tho coal
supply there was very much depleted.
On account of the Russian warships
having been compelled to keep up full
steam day and night for nearly eight
months and tho enormous quantities of
fuel required for tho water condensing
plant, there must bj a coal famine
thero now unless moro ccal has arrived
The Japaneeo havo since then cut off
tho wator Bupply, when tho garrison
would havo to depend entirely upon the
condenser. If a coal famino prevails,
the town must bo getting water from
impuro water wells, which would also

NEW LAND POLICY.
Tracts Withdrawn Will Not Be Sold
as Soon as Restored.
Washington, Sept. 24. Iho secre
tary of tbo interior has ordered res tor
ed. to entry a portion of the lands in
Skagit and Whatcom counties, Wash
igton, that were temorarily withdrawn
in December, 1002, with a view to en
larging the Washington forest reserve
nn thn wr-nt aula. Thorn lands were
examined by the forestry bureajf and
. v; z
found unsuitable for forest reserve pur
poses. 8omo aro agiicultuial in char
actor, son e grazing lands, but a con
siderable area is valuable for its tim-
bor. The reason the timber lands . are
to bo turned back to the public domain
is because they are isolated tracts, lo
cated among lands now in private
ownership. It would not be practica
ble to reserve them without reserving
tbo adjoining private lands, and this
policy is not favored.
In restoring these lands to entry the
interior department is adopting a new
po'icy. These and all other lands
hereafter restored to entry will not bo-
come subject to settlement immediate
ly, but will be advertised for 00 days.
This is to give every one an equal
chanco to take up newly opened lands,
and to prevent any one getting unfair
advantage. This was not done in the
case of the Blue mountain lands restored
in Oregon, but the rule will heieafter
apply to all lands eliminated from
withdrawals, as well as lands wbicb
aro cut out ol established reserves.
COST OP UNSTABLE CURRENCY.
Philippines Out $1,204,030 as Re
sult of riuctuations in Silver.
Washington, Sept 24. The bureau
of insular affairs of the war depart
ment in its review and final audit of
tho finances of the Philippine govern
ment has definitely fixed tho loss sus
tained by tho insular treasury, up to
Juno 30, 1003, duo to tho fluctuating
valuo of the silver currencry in general
circulation in tho islands uutil.a recent
dato at $1,204,080.
This loss to tho insular government
was brought about largely by the fact
that when silvor was dear Mexican dol
lars wero almost exolueively offered for
payment of government dues, but when
silver was cheap and tho Mexicans
over valued comparatively Utile was
offered in payment of dues, and credit
ors of the government sought by every
meannB possible to obtain sottoment by
tho government in Mexican money.
In this way silver money would bo
taken in at a high rato of exchange to
gold and paid out at a much lower rate
Under tho now coinage act, which is
now in Buccossful oporatlon, Mexican
money is no longer recoipable fpr pub-
Rush of Immigrants.
