years as United States consul at

Chicago. Speaking of business con

dication of returning prosperity and
the general improvement of commer
cial conditions Mr. Thompson said:
"A very good and a very sure
thing of trade conditions is the de
clared exports to the United States
from Europe. A rapid revival in
business conditions is going on this
ery minute. It may not be appar
ent in every respect, nut in orders
placed in Germany by American buy
ers and in goods now being shipped
to this country, the improvement dur

been almost marked as the falling off
was noticeable during the previous
"'Germany has felt the effects of the
depression here very acutely as, her
exports to American are principally
manufactured utilities. While the
Talue of our exports to Germany
vastly exceeds what we buy from
her this being on account of her
purchase of raw products such as
cotton, grain and petroleum in a
comparison on an exchange of manu
factured articles purely, she has us
beaten by nearly 500 per cent, this is,
she sells us a hundred millions worth

states clearly that telephone service

declares where the public is required
to drop a nickel every time the tele

be greatly in excess of the maximum

by special grant. If the companies

TAFT'S MANY ENGAGEMENTS,
Has Accepted the Invitation to At-
tend Bar Association Meeting.
HOT SPRINGS, July 30.-Judge
Taft admitted this afternoon that he
felt somewhat fatigued after the ex
periences of the past few days. After
passing upon the accumulation of
correspondence he went over a four
mile golf course with Senator Bourne
of Oregon as opponent. His engage
ments during August will be limited
if the candidate has his way. He has
accepted the invitation to attend the
annual meeting of the Virginia Bar
Association next week. His speech
will be non-political. The horse show
at White Sulphur Springs next week
to which Taft has been invited, he
stated was somewhat tempting. The
proposed rally of the Virginia repub
licans at some date next month has
not yet been fixed and will afford the
opportunity for what Taft expects to
be his only political speech

CHICAGO. July M-The ' an
nouncement in New York last night
that Ktow and Erlanger had formed
a partnership arrangement with Kohl
and Castle, the Chicago vaudeville
managers of the Chicago opera house,
luieted the last echo of the "Vaude
ville war" that made interesting talk
for Chicago theatre-goers last winter.
Especial significance is attached to
the move, atde from its indication of
a complete cessation of hostilities,
from the fact that the change wil
mark the entrance of Klaw and F.r
Linger into Chicago theatrical affairs
as actual partners in the lesse or ow
nership of a-theatre.
They have what is known j a
"tock interest" in the Colonial and
Illinois theatres, but their participa
tion i nthe management of the houses
has been confined to this and has been
only nominal. ,
With the new arrangement as an
opening wedge, it is rumored that the
activities of the New York firm may
extend to other Chicago theatres.'
