will he hauled by railroad to Valdez
and reduued there by smelters. The
construction of the railroad, lie de
clare, will quickly make it the largest
copper producing district in the world,
the surface showing undoubtedly the
most favorable that lias ever been dis

are three to eight feet wide and seem
very continuous. Mr. Brantnober be
lieves that both smelters and refiners

years, making that the largest city on
the Alaskan coast.
Canada Under Ban.
Victoria, B. C, Sept. 21. --The belief
is general here that the crusade against
United States goods in China will be
extended to those of Canadian origin.
Simultaneous meetings are being held
in all tqe cities of Canada where Chi
nese have gained a foothold, at which
resolutions have been passed condemn
ing the treatment accorded Chinese by
the citizens and government of the Do

Reyes Becomes Dictator.
1'anama, Sept. 21. Unconfirmed re
ports reached here today to the effect
that General Rafael lieyes, president
of Colombia, declared himself dictator
on September 10 and imprisoned the
members of the Supreme court at Bo
gota. Mobs, angered by this action,
attacked the presidential palace and
were fired on by the troops, who killed
or wounded many of the rioters. The
reports say that revolutions have been
started in Antioquia and Santiago.
Many Murders at Baku.
Tiflls, Sept. 21. The governor of
Baku reports that there have been no
disorders on a large scale in the town
or in the oil fields, but there have been
scattered cases of assaults and murder.

Legislators Who Visited Territory Will
Propose New Scheme.
Washington, Sept. 20. Those senat
or and representatives who visited
Ahixka thl summer, including Speaker
Cannon, were not favorably impressed
with the idea of giving that territory a
delegate to congress, but have outlined
a substitute plan which they will bring
forwanl next session. They propose
treating Alaska an congress treats the
District of Columbia, appointing a spe
cial committee in the senate ami house
to consider and handle all legisla'.ion
relating to Alaska.
This will place Alaska matter in the
hand of men directly interested in the
territory and, it is Relieved, will pro-
duco better result than could be at
tained by a delegate. The committee
wa satinlled that no one delegate could
intelligently represent the whole of
Alaska, because ot it vast extent and
the varying needs of different Beet ion,
and congress would never consent to
more than one delegate under any cir
cumstance. If the plan of these men,
which has the indorsement of the
speaker, shall be carried through, a
new committee on Alaska will lo creat
ed in the next senate and house.
The congressional party which visited
Alaska in also convinced that congress
should do a much to aid railroad
building in Alaska a it has done for
railroads in- the I'hilippines, and a
a movement will be put on foot to pas
a bill next session under which the
government will guarantee 3 per cent

Twenty-Five People Injured and One
Man Killed in Nevada.
Ueno, Nev., Spet. 20. Twenty-five
person at this hour (1 :30 A. M.) are
reported injured and one man, George
Wan-man, is dead, as the result of a
terrible head-on collision on the South
ern Pacific road between two freight
train, followed by the rear-end collis
ion between two passenger trains, at a
point nine mile west of Beowawe, be
tween 0 and 7 o'clock last evening.
The wreck, from the reports given
out, was caused by one of the engineers
on the freight trains running past Ins
orders. An effort was made to stop
the incoming pus.-enger trains with suc
cess for the first section of No. 3,
though a moment later the second sec
tion, said to be in charge of Engineer
Hons and fireman Iinville. plunged
full Bpeed into the first section.
The enuuieer and tiremn are report
ed among the injured. Many more
deaths are expected when complete
details are in.
Physicians, nurses and supplies, in
addition to three wrecking trains, are
now either at the scene or rushing to it
to render aid to the sutTering. I he
office at Sparks will not give out any
definite details. The railroad has just
started a special train said to contain
four badly injured passengers for the
railroad hospital at him rranciBco.
Capital Returns to the Banks and Is
Eager for Investment.
Tokio, Sept. 20. Despite the fact
that the ebullition of popular dissatis
faction over the peace arrangements
continues unabated, there are indica
tions that the business contingent is
slowly sobering down. The capital in
tended for new enterprises, following
the successful couclusion of the treaty
of peace, is gradually coming into the
banks as deposits in amounts which are
likely to lower the rate of interest.
The profound disappointment which
has prevailed has at least proved a ben
efit to the extent of saving the people
from any feverish intoxication, result
ing in bubble enterprises, like those
which accompanied the close of the war
with China. The moneyed class has
resumed the attitude of frugality which
guided its transactions during the war;
the financial outlook is not so gloomy
and capital is impatiently awaiting
solid investments.
Count of Uncle Sam's Cash.
Washington, Sept. 20. The count of
the cash, notes, bonds and other secur
ities in the treasury of the United
States, incident to the transfer of the
office of United States treasurer from
Ellis 11. Roberts to Charles II. Treat,
was completed today, and found to
agree exactly with the treasury books.
The total of July 1, 1005, was found to
be $1 ,250,508,278. This total is an in
crease of $402,672,830 over the amount
transferred by D. N. Morgan, the out
goirg treasurer, to Mr. Roberts, on
July 1, 1897.
Farmers May Form Union.
Chicago, Sept. 20. The farmers of
Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and other
adjacent states may organize and aflili

favor in Wisconsin, according to J. W.
Morton, the Chicago labor leader.
Morton says the farmers are enthusi
antic over the plan to organize. The
organization will be called the Atneri
can Society of Equity.

Many Changes To Be Made In
President's Cabinet.
Roosevelt Will Consider Man's Ability
Before He Considers His
Place of Residence.
Washington, Sept. 10. It Is proba
ble that only four members of the pres
ent cabinet will remain to the end of
President Roosevelt's term: Klihu
Root, secretary of state; William II.
Taft, secretary of war; G. IJ. Cortelyou,
postmaster general, and C. J. Bona
parte, secretary of the navy.
Considerable uncertainty surrounds
the future of the other five members
of the cabinet, or rather, four mem
bers, for it is known that Secretary
Khaw will resign next February.
Home speculation is indulged in as to
whether or riot the president, in re
forming his cabinet, will have a regard
for geographical lines, or will pick the
men best suited for the places, regard
less of where they come from. In the
present cabinet New York and Iowa
have two members, and Ohio, Massa
chusetts, Maryland, Missouri and Cali
fornia one each. The South is not rep
resented, but all ot'-er sections are.
New York will continue to have at
least two memlers (Root and Cortel
you); Iowa will lose one in Shaw an 1
another if Wilson resigns, but Ohio
and Maryland will retain their repre
sentation. If Hitchcock retires, some
Western man is almost certain to suc
ceed him, but it would be utterly im
possible to pick the man. And so it
goes. The probabilities a'e that the
new cabinet will be composed of men
from all parts of the country, but Pres
ident Roosevelt will consider a man's
ability before he considers his place of
Incendiaries Make Repeated Efforts to
Destroy New York Defenses.
New Yoik, Sept. 10. Four mysteri
ous fires in three of the four forts pro
tecting New York harbor within the
last two months have caused the mili
tary authorities of the department of
the East much orncern.
Two of the fires have been at Fort
Hamilton, one on the night of July 17
and the other last Friday night. On
the night in July of the fire at Fort
Hamilton there was a disastrous fire at
Fort Wadsworth. The latest fire was
at Fort Slocum, on the David island,
in the Sound, Sunday night.
In each case there have been suspi
cious circumstances concerning the or
igin of the fires. Magazines, barracks,
hospitals, forage and even big siege
guns have been destroyed and damaged
in these fires, and despite the most
thorough investigation nothing ia
known definitely as to how the fires
Union Pacific Must Build 300, and
Will Enlarge Shops.
Omaha, Neb., Sept. 19. The Union
Pacific needs 300 gasoline motor cars of
the type just finished, according to the
statement of W . R. Mckeen, superin
tendent of the motive power and ma
chinery. At the rate of 50 a year, he
says, the road cannot be supplied with
the cars as rapidly as it will require
The present facilities for making
them are being tested to the limit, but
they are far from adequate. Additions
to the shops are to be built at once, at
a cost of $700,000, which will increase
the facilities. Representatives of other
roads and of suburban lines who have
sought to place orders for cars with the
Union Pacific have been told they can
not be supplied.
Can't Grow Cotton in West Africa.
Washington, Sept. 19. The depart
ment of Commerce and Labor has just
published a report stating that the re
suit of the attempt to grow cotton in
West Africa has been discouraging,
owing to the absence of transportation
facilities. The Cotton association
tried American seeds, but the planta
tion did not prove to be a success

Washington, Sept. 19. The Navy
department has received a report on
the investigation made at the Puget
Sound navy yard into charges against
Master Shipwright George w. L Tra
iiey, alleged to have sold his influence
in getting appointments for workmen
in that yard. It is not known w hat
the report contains, but it ia believed
nothing startling will bo brought to
light, nothing to form the basis of a
great sensation.
New Mexico Irrigation Project.
Washington, Sept. 19. The secre
tary of the interior has ordered the
withdrawal from entry of 300,000 acres
of land in the Rob well, N. M., land
district, on account of the Carlsbad ir
rigation project.
China Prefers to Seek Knowledge
From Her Neighbor.
New York, Sept. 10. What effect
the war in the Far Fast will have on
the propaganda of the Christian relig
ion in Japan wa the subject of a lec
ture at the West Branch Young Men's
Christian Association by Dr. Ibuka,
president of an institution of learning
in Tokio, and himself a Christian.
That the recent outbreak in Tokio
and the attack upon the churches wa
the result of merely a local feeling and
did not represent any widespread anti-
foreign feeling in the empire, w:w the
insertion of Vhe lecturer.
"When the war with Russia first
began, I and my fellow Christians in
Japan were ufieasj for fear that the
struggle should result in a lasting ani
mosity toward the Christian religioft in
the empire. At first the cry was raised
that it wa a struggle of. Buddhism ver
sus Christianity, arid the Russians did
many things to foster this sentiment,
but it was not long until this illusion
was dispelled and the people were
brought to see that religion and re
ligious leliefs had no part in the war.
Already China has become aroused
to the fact that she has much to learn,
and she is seeking this knowledge from
Japsn rather than from European
countries. Hundreds of the young men
of Japan are taking positions as in
structors in the Chinsee institutions of
learning, and hundreds of the young
men of China are coming to the col
leges of Japan for instruction. It is
vitally necessary that the young men
should be taught tiie truths of the
Christian religion if it is to be spread
in China."
One Great Measure Roosevelt Will
Recommend in Message.
Washington, Sept. 19. President
Roosevelt, in his forthcoming message
to congress, will urge the remodeling
of the public land laws, and among
other things will specifically recom
mend the repeal of the timber and
stone act, the law which has been re
sponsible for more fraud and which has
caused the government greater actual
loss of money than any other public
land statute. The president will base
his recommendation upon the report of
the Public Lands commission, consist
ing of Commissioner Richards, of the
general land office, F. H. Newell, head
of the Reclamation service, and Gifford
Pinchot, chief forester.
This commission submitted to con
gress at its last session a second report
on its investigation, and, among other
things, said:
"Instances of the beneficial operation
of the timber and stone act may be cit
ed, but when it is considered from the
point of view of the general interest of
the public, it becomes obvious that this
law should be repealed."
Since the foregoing report was pub
lished, the commission has submitted
to the public printer a great appendix,
containing data and facts upon which
its conclusions were based. This ap
pendix has not yet been made public.
Russian Troops at Baku Refuse to
Leave Barracks.
Baku, Sept. 19 The situation
through the Caucasus continues to grow
worse and worss and the authorities are
unable to do anything towards check
ing the Tartars, who continue to ravage
the countryside, murdering al! who op
pose them and ravishing and torturing
all females without regard to station
The troops are so badly scared by the
rioters that they refuse to leave their
headquarters and content themselves
with firing a few shots at long range at
small bodies of armed Tartars, who oc
casionally approach the barracks.
During the past 24 hours armed
bodies of Tartars have attacked and
burned the remaining oil towers in
the district and at the present time
not one of them remains standing.
No one can estimate the loss, which
will run into the millions. A conserv
ative estimate of the killed during the
past week by Tartars is 5,000, includ
ing many women and children.
Leaps Off Cliff to Death.
Manila, Sept. 19. Felizardo, a chief
of the outlaws in the province of Ca-
vite, who for a long time has made
trouble for the authorities, was sur
rounded today near the Batangas border
and iumped over a cliff. He was killed
by the fall. The death of Felizardo
will, it is believed, end the disturb
ances in the province of Cavite. On
January 24, 300 Ladrones, led by
Felizardo and Montalon, attacked the
town of San Fran de Malabon, looted
the municipal treasury of $2,000 and
Embezzlement in Japan.
Tokio, Sept. 19. The information
has been made public that three naval
paymasters have embezzled $165,000 of
government funds. lhe announce'
ment has been calmly received by the
public, but the knowledge that the
commission of the crime extended over
a period of three years without disovery
may, it ia said, arouse a feeling of dis
trust and uneasiness toward the naval
administration, and furnish a weapon
to the parties opposing the government.
Old Ship May Turn Turtle.
Boston, Sept. 19. The Herald to
morrow will say: The ancient frigate
Constitution, familiarly known as the
"First ship of the American navy,"
which has for years been one of the
most valued possessions of the Charles
ton navy yard, is in danger ot "turning
turtle," and it is learned that the good
ship cannot last many years in IU pres
ent state.

like all his kind. He Is about the bulk
of a hippopotamus, although more

the unique position of being common
