Arguments In Tobacco Duty Cases.
Washington, Dec. 3. Tn the su
preme court of the United States to
day arguments In the case of the gov
ernment against Falk & Bio. of New
York, were resumed.
The question the court has to de
termine Is whether Imported tobacco
Is dutiable on the basis of Its weight
when It enters, or when It Is with
drawn from warehouses. The decision
of the circuit court 'of appeals was
that the sluty should be paid on the
weight at withdrawal, and it Is esti
mated that under this ruling the treas
ury would suffer a loss of a million
dollars a year on tobacco, to say
nothing of the loss on other articles
to which the principle
would apply If
held applicable to tobacco.
There are now on file in the offices;
of the hoard of general appraisers t'
New York. U.onn protests against the
collection of tlniy upon entry, and as
they lire accumulating at the rate of
several (thousands a mouth the case Is
considered of great Importance.
Alleged Fertilizer Trust Cases.
Washington. Pee. 3. The supreme
court today took up the hearing of
the 10 cases against officers of the
so-called fertilizer trust who are re
sisting removal from Virginia to Ten
nessee on chnrges of conspiracy un
der the Sherman anti-trust law.
The cases raise a new point In pro
ceedure under the Sherman anti-trust
law. James G. Tlnsley and 10 other
residents of Virginia, alleged to be
members of the combination of fer
tilizer manufacturers, were Indicted
by the Tennessee courts for conspira
cy In that state to raise the price of
fertilizers. They resisted removal to I
. -(, f,'
the So-Called Tobacco Trust, and!
Tennessee on the ground that never
having been In the state they could
not be Indicted for conspiracy there
in. The federal court of Virginia de
nied writs of habeas corpus for their
release based on that point, and their
appeals from that Judgment will to
day be reviewed by the supreme court.
.Japanese Issue Coming to front.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 3. Both
houses adjourned before 1 o'clock.
The president discussed the Japan
ese situutlon with a number of callers
today. It Is understood he has de
cided upon a reply to make to the
Japanese government. The reply is
not yet made public, but It is under
stood the administration found the
federal laws do not cover the case,
and therefore the grievances of the
Japanese cannot be taken up by the

FINISHING MINIDOKA WORK.
Idaho Government Irrigation Project
Is About Completed.
The big grading' contract of Mon
arch & Porter, at Minidoka, will be
finished this week, according to pies
ent expectations, as the work is being
rushed with a large force of men and
.teams and very little remains to be
done, says the Rupert (Idaho) Rec
ord. The work has been prosecuted
under difficulties during the past two
weeks, owing to the inclemency of the
weather, und there will be some little
flushing that will probably have to
go over until next spring.
This was one of the largest grading
contracts ever undertaken In the west,
covering more than 60 miles of ditches
and amounting to nearly a quarter of
a million dollars. Work was com
menced a year ago last July and the
contract specified its completion on
the first of last June.
The Monarch & Porter outfltB will

Contractor McGrath has suspended
operations for the winter on the con
crete work for hrldges and headgates
and goes to South Dakota to look
after concrete work for Orman &
Crook. The wood work will be fin
ished on the bridges for which piers
have been built and it will require
about two months In the spring to
fir.iEh up the contract
Owing to the extreme cold weather
the sub-lateral outfits of Wiseman
Thompson and Byrum have been laid
off and the others will probably be
stopped within a few days. During
the winter months the wooden head
i gates will be built for turning water
I into the sub-laterals, and if the
weather 'permits they will be placed
; in position.

United State Potato Crop Record One.
Washington, Dec. 3. From a rough,
example of the preliminary estimates,
a compilation shows the potato acre
age of 1906 to be 2.957.800 against
2.990.700 planted in 1905. The aver
age yield per acre is given at 102.5
bushels against 87 last year. This
would Indicate a crop close tm 300,
000,000 bushels as against 260.000,
700 in 1905. The big markets con
tinue to receive full supplies of pota
toes and prices are accordingly re
ported to be dropping. It is claimed
that In Northern Michigan are get
ting supplies as low as 22 cents a
bushel. This year's potato crop Is the
largest on record.
