SAD PLIGHT OP COLOMIIIA.
She Finds Herselt In a State of Practical
llankruptcy from Rebellion.
Waihlngton, May 16, A gloomy
picture of tho torrlblo plight in which
Colombia finds herself as tho result of
tho exhausting four years of rebellion
Is contained In a communication which
has roached this city from a source of
unquestionable reliability. Thorn) ad
vice stato that on March 1 laat tho
government gavo notice that it had
stopped tho isstio of papor money that
was flooding tho country and had
turned tho lithographic plntcs, from
which it was made, over to a commit
too compoaod of prominent momliori of
different political patties. Conse
quently tho government early In April
was almoat entirely without funds. It
had not enough to pay running ex
penses, to say nothing of foreign claims
and demands. Not a rent of Interest
had boon paid on tho national debt
since tho war commenced In 1800. Tho
claims growing out of tho recent revo
lution were assuming tromondous pro
portions, and an thoro woro no other
means of relief It was apparent that
Uio government mint again ho ru
course to tho lithographic stones and
start tho presses running again. More
over, It was tho general opinion that
oven tho small measure of relief which
might follow tho receipt of tho $10,
000,000 from tho United Mates on ac
count of the I'anama canal could not bo
obtained, as it was not exected that
cougreis would ratify tho treaty.
At ono tlmo last year, tho exchange
on New York was 23,000; that la to
ray, 23,000 Colombian dollars wcro re
quired to purchase $t worth of goods
in the United States. It was feared
tliat the rato would go oven hlghor
this summer, for thoro was over $!,
000,000 worth of this paper money
Moat, and It was oxpocted that f 600,
000,000 more would bo loaned Immedi
ately to py war expenw. Tho foreign
debt of 1BU0 amounted to f 12,700,000,
on which tho intoirst rate was first 2,,
and then threo per cent., but this In
terest has not been paid for several
years. It was tho general opinion, ac
cording to tho report, that tho Colom
bian trcvernment could not pay its
debts, and apprehension was expreaHHl
as to what might happen in cam tho
foreign creditors pushed for a final set
tlement of their claims.

Intention of tho attorney general to

Until Alter July I.
Washington, May 14. Poatmaster
Genoral l'ayne today announced that
there would bo no more establishments
of rural froo delivery service until July

This Is one result of investigation of
postofllco affairs, and tho discovery that
at tbo present rale of Increaso of routes
there wilt bo a deficit of (20,000 in tho
rural froo delivery eervloe by tbo end
of this fiscal year. Instructions have
been glvon to Fourth Assistant Poat
maatei General Drlstow to curtail ex
penditures. It is not lntondod, how
over, that tho Investigation of proposod
routes shall be suspended, and the
Held work thoreforo will continue. Mr.
t'ayno estimates that tho total number
of rout os fairly entitled to be estab
lished In tho enttio country would bo
38,000, and at tho present rate of In
creaso this would be reached two years
Mr. Payno said tonight that ho had
asked tho civil service commlanion to
have its representatives make an in
vestigation of tho Washington post
ofllco, in addition to tho investigation
already made by postofllco inspectors.

count of charges of violations of the
civil service law in that office. The

WILL DRAW PENSIONS.
New York Firm's Practical Plan for Pen
Now York, May 14. Tbo Gorbam
manufacturing company, the promi
nent silvenmitbs of New York and
(rrovldence, It. I., has recently put
Into operation a plan for pensioning
their 2,600 employes In factory and
stores which ha been most favorably
commented upon by leading sociolo
gists. Tho plan provldos that any employe
whoso record is satisfactory to the com
pany may bo placed upon a permanent,
pension roll, provided he has rerved
tho company for at toast 25 years, and
receive thereafter as long as he lives, a
pension equal to 1 per cent of his wage
at tho tlmo of retirement for each year
of sorvke. Thus a man who has been
with tho Gorham company 40 years
will receive an annual pension payable
In monthly Installments of 40 per cent
of tho amount ho was being paid at tho
time he retired.
Ample provision has been made by
tho company to create a permanent
pension fund without taxing tho em
ployes for the purpoeo. This is ono of
tho most generous, and at the same
tlmo practical, plans yet dovlsod for
profit sharing on an acceptable basis.
TROLLEY CAR ON FIRE.
Short Circuit Caused the BUxe Panic
New Yorki May 14. Through a short
circuit under a rapidly running open
car on tho Third avenue line last night
a blazo was started which spread rapid
ly and quickly enveloped tho car. The
motorman, despite tho crios of the CO
or mora passengers to stop before they
woro burned to death, put on full
power, and those on board began to
Jump from the car. Tho conductor was
ono of the first to Jump. After running
tho car at full speed for three-quarters
of a mile tho motorman apparently
realized that his own life was threat
ened by tho florco flames so bo shut off
I i power, Jammed down the brako ard
leaped off, among the indignant out
cries of a large crowd which had gath
ered. Nearly every ono of tho passen
gers was moro or less seriously hurt.

District of Alaska Discussed In OcelogU
ca! Survey Papers.
Washington, May 13. The United
States geological survey has in press
for early publication a paper on tbo
mineral reourcos of the Monnt Wran
gel district, Alaska, by Walter C. Men
dentiall and Frank O. Schrader. The
paper opens with a brief introduction
in which tho hiBtory of this now well
known copper district of Southern
Alaska is traced from the time of the
stamHvIo of 1808 to tho present. Tho
discussion of the mineral resources ot
the region Is then taken up and the
copper, gold, coal and other minerals
that are known to exist or have been
reported from tlmo to time, are treated
In turn. The information presented Is
the latest that Is available, having been
collected In great part in the course of
geologic investigations mado by tho
authors during tho season ot 1002.
The copper resources of the region
are first discussed. The copper deposits
occur in two somewhat widely separ
ated fields, lying along tbo southern
and northern slopes, respectively, of
the Mount Wrangol group of moon
tains, a lofty volcanio chain, which di
verges from tho St. Ellas range near
the Alaska-Canadian boundary and ex
tends 160 miles westward, ending ab
ruptly In tho Copper river valley.
Tho best known copper field Ilea
within tho southern area, and is gen
erally spokon of aa the Chitl&a copper
belt. The geologic history of this
bolt Is briefly reviewed with special
reference to tbo processes that havo
affected tho greenstones and llmo
etonoa within which the copper deposits
aro found. After this review, the var-
ious properties are described In detail,"
some of those that aro best known
being tho Elliott Crook group, tho Bo
nanxa claim, Just east of Kennicott
Glacier, and tho Nicolai propertiea in.
tho Nitina country.
