Pullman, 111. In the purchaBO of this
material, the company has expended
close to $1,500,000.
These figures aro vouched for by Al
bert Jon 08, purchasing agent of tho
Pullman company, who was sent to
tho West 18 monthB ago to buy lumber.
The first is used exclusively for siding
on boxcars, and, besides the lumber
bought here, more is continually being

In discussing the jury's verdict, Aus

placed the resposibility for tho convic

"You can't defend rebate cases fin the
present state of public opinion." said
According to the provisions ef the
Elkins act, under which the convictions
were secured, the maximum penalty Ib
a fine of $20,000. As both the Central
and tho personal defendant, Frederick

charged in the- indictment, the total

Increasing Army and Revenue Under
Two Great Statesmen.
Washington, Oct. 18. Conditions in
China, which were generally supposed
to have improved since the cessation of
the boycott on American goods and its
consequent agitation, are really much
worse, and the anti-foreign feeling is
greater than it ever was. Information
of an absolutely trustworthy character
has raecbed Washington to thia effect.
The Chinese army, under the guid
ing hand of Yuan Shin Kai, considered
by those who know China to be the
greatest man in the country, is being
increased at a tremendous rate, and the
government is putting a great deal of
money into its main fighting force.
Yuan Is viceroy of the province of Chi
Ji, in which Pekin is situated. He hap
very great influence and his main poli
cy seems to be to increase the army,
This fact, coupled with the show of for
eign hatred, wnicn is becoming more
and more apparent, makes the situation
Tank 3bao Yi is rapidly becoming
one of the most powerful men in China.
Not only has he an enormous salary as
viceroy, but he is also vice president of
the foreign office and director general
of the railway between Hankow and
lekin, and occupies the same position
in regard to the railroad from Pekin to
Havana Totally Isolated.
New York, Oct. 19. At 2 o'clock
this morning cable communication with
Havana had not been restored and the
Western Union company was unable

Key West, the land linoB throughout
Southern Florida having been prostrated.
It is impossible to get information
that will give any bails for an esti-nate
ot the damage in Havana. The cable
lines on the western Cnba end are con
nected with Havana by land wires and
the presumption is that these wires
have been put out of commission, a
single dispatch received by the Asso
ciated Press from Santiago de Cuba
stating that the weather there Is
clear. This dispatch camo by way of

The senator devoted the most of the ad
dress to a discussion of the tariff. He
made a plea for a limited tariff revis

in some tariff schedules because the
conditions under which they were
made have changed and it would be
better not to imperil the whole pro

.Chicago, Oct. 19. Chinese labor is
not being employed in the Panama
canal zone, nor will it be, according to
Obai.rman Shonts, of the canal com'mis--ion,
who is in the city to attend the
celebration of bis mother's eighty-third
birthday. Mr. Sbonta said sanitary
conditions on the canal zone are excel
lent and work progressing stendily.
"I cannot imagine bow the report
was started," he said, "that Chinese
were being employed as laborers on the
canal. I have never contracted' for
Chinese labor, but simply invited bids.
There are no Chinese employed in Pan
ama, to my Knowledge, except, per
haps, as laundrymen, and none will be.

La Grande Peter O'Snliivan, who
has juat returned from a visit to Wal
lowa county, says that one of the chief
causes for the prevailing prosperity in
all sections of that country is the in
creaso in the price of cattle. Repre
sentatives of the Pacific Meat company

The range leasing plan has proved very
satisfactory, and the forming ol separ

It now appears almost certain, ac
cording to the nowa received at a late

which overtook the crew of the subma

of tho Latin numbered 14 men.
Admiral Dellne, commander of the
Tunis naval division, who went out on
board a tug, roturned at a late hour to

Ouo of these boats reports that Its

to thia port, will return in the morning
and partlccipato In tho work.
The L'ritlsli consul general here pro
posed to the French resident general to
telegraph to the British admiralty at
