In the preliminary work and thy ar

The Puerto Rlcan Benevolent Society
of -Ponce deserves much credit for the
veiy eflitint wort It has ben doing In
relieving the misery and distress among
the poor of this city, especially among
the poor and sick women and children.
The society is made up of the leading
ladies of Ponce, and has over 10o mem
bers, only eight of whom are Americans.
The ladies work systematically and per
sonally vHt the poor and help them.
This is quite a departure from the
ancient custom here. The elety is go
ing to hold a bazaar in the remodeled
La Perla theater In December for the
purpose of raising funds to establish an
slms house. In order to take the nu- !
merous beggars off the streets of Ponce. .
There is no such 'nstltutlon here. When ' th"ush il wa8 wlth thls reservation

en care of for a comparatively small
sum. Now the crippled and infirm are

by the pennies givn to them each day.
The sociM'y is ren ling to the United
States hundreds of letters to prominent
manufacturers and merchants, asking
for contrlbutl ins of goods to be sold at

generous response, for the contributions I

hort of Miust ammunition and are
unable to refill rartridges of this class.
He says, however, that they are well
supplied with Remington ammunition,
which they manufacture themselves.
They alss manufacture dynamite and
powder from petrjleum and salt, which
is shipped to them from Manila and
taken into ".heir lines at night.
Of the 14 Amerlcin prisoners held by
the Insurgents at Tarlac, the rebels
claim that four have accepted commis
sions In the insorgent army. Two
Scotchmen, named McKlnley and Mac
intosh, have escaped from the rebels.
They say that the insurgent claim to
have 250 American prisoners scattered
through various towns, but they know
of no one, personally, excepting Lieu
tenant Oilmore and his fourteen sailors.
The Insurgents say, however, that they
have two American officers In confine

Colonel Smith, at Angeles, has sent
to General Mac Arthur a placard In

AN OVSTEU TRt'ST.
Growers of Long Island Sound to (n
solldute Their Intervals.
NKW YORK. Nov. 2. The oystermen
of Long Island sound are utd to be pre
parihg to consolidate their Interests.
Such an attempt was made last spring,
but the movement proved unsuccessful
because many of the 22 dealers who had
combined beoam afraid of being un -
il..m.ilil hv nJlier nuMiiht'ra of the union
and began cutting prices. The present
movement Is said to desU with Intervsts
capitalized as high as $20,000,000. Such
a comblna'lon will save about $1,000,000
a year. It Is sU 1, and wltl protect h
seed men from the present downward I
drr of prices.
Ten years ago the ruling price for
oysters of the Irsat quality was 70 cents j
to $1 a bushel. Export oysters were In j
demand at $5 to $6 a barrel. Now the
prices paid for marketable oysters Is
only 30 to 5" cent a bushel and $S a j
barrel Is the top notch for those whipped
to Europe. One reesn which Is given
for this decline Is that the middle men
are making the money. The middle men
buy the seed which develops from oys-1
ter spawn deposited on the submerg-M 1
lands of the seed men along the Ixmg
Island sound shores, and taking It to
the Narraganse-tt bay, New York and
New Jersey, they replant the seed after
the oysters have matured. They sell
their product to the scow men, as they
are called In New York city. The scow
men sell to the consumer.
