Government's Probable Action on
EXCEPTING GREAT CULEBRA CUT
Doubt Whother Any Concern Would
Undertako Thla Work on Ac
count of Magnitude.
'Washington, Oct. 24. Tho govern
ment of tho United States ia willing to
enter Into contracts with corporations
or individuals for tho construction of
any portion or nil of tho Panama canal.
This statement was mado hy Secretary
Taft today, while discussing tho condi
tions upon tho Isthmus and the policy
of the government.
There is some doubt in his mind
whether any concern would bo willing
to undertake the excavation of tho Cu
lobra cut on account of tho magnitude
of that work. It Is not the excavation
that will bo so dllllcult as much as tho
disposition of tho earth taken out of
the cut. Hut aa to the other work the
government will bo ready to enter into
contracts for itn completion an soon as
It is determined what type of canal
shall bo constructed. It Is stated that
contracts would not bo mado during
the preliminary stages because tho gov
ernment had to prosecuto tho work un
til its olhcora know what was to be
done and had a sufficient knowledge of
the conditions to pass upon bids and
mako Judicious contracts.

Strike Is Preliminary to General Sus
pension of All Labor.
St. Peterbsurg, Oct. 24. The rail
road strlko situation shows no sigm of
amelioration. Traffic across the cen
tral belt is paralysed, while a genera
strike, which broke out today at Khar
koff, has cut off communication in an
other great section of tho empire.
Kharkoff is tho most Important rail
road center in Southern Russia. The
strlko affects, among others, tho lino to
the Donetx coal region, on which litis
sla largely depends for fuel during the
crisis In tho oil regions, and tho lino to
Odessa and Sobastopol.
Moscow is isolated except tlio lino to
St. Petersburg, while tlio capital has
an international line, by Fydtkuhnen,
open to llerlln. Tho strike is part of a
geneial scheme hy Social Democrats to
compel the emperor to grant universal
suffrage and compel political freedom,
but tho plan of tho leaders is to avoid
a collision with the authorities. Their
piesent purpose Is to make tests of tlio
strength ot the various organisations
preparatory to the inauguration ot a
general strike of ail classes in support
of the radicals at about tho time tho
national assembly meets.

America Great Gas Producer.
Washington, Oct. 24. An Important
report shortly will be issued by the
United States geological survey on nat
ural gas and its production and con
sumption, It will show that in 1004
tho United States produced 08 per cent
of tho world's knwon output ot gas,
tho value being 130,40(1,700. Four
states Pennsylvania, West Virginia,
Indiana nnd Ohio produced 03.5 por

TRtlNQ TO HEAL 8PLIT.
Negotiations On for Merger of Rival
I'rnver, Oct. 2.1. Tho proposition to
amalgamate tho National Livestock asso

association on a basis that would also

ieprcntstlon o( the packing, railroad
and commission houso Interests, was
taken up at the Joint conference of the
executive committees of the two organi
sation it the Urown Palace hotel yes
trilay. A plan outlined by a subcom
nil.tte was voted down after a sorno
what extended discussion and the sub
committee Instructed to mako another
effort to formulate a plan that would
he acceptable to all Interests. The
subcommittee will report again today
The rctiort, which was defeated yes
terday, recommended that the National
Livestock association be changed to Na
tional Livestock committee, consisting
of representatives of tho producers of
livestock. This committee would In
turn apoint committees on railroads,
packing houses, commission houses,
etc, which would give those Interests a
representation and a right to be heard
whenever they felt the need of expres
sion. The report recommended that
the American Btockgrowera become
known as tho American Oattlegrowers'
association, with a membership con
slstlug of cattle, horses and swine
growers. Tho sheep men, the report
suggested, should affiliate with the
American Woolgrowera' association.

CHOLERA UNDER CONTROL.
Attacks Europeans and Americans
Rather Than Filipinos.
Washington. Oct. 23. The cholera
plague in the Philippines is belag got
ten under control by the Marino Hos
pital service. A peculiarity of the dis
easo is that it haa not shown any ten
dency toward location and the persons
attacked have been generally of tho
better classes. In proportion to the
population there have been more cases
among tho Kuropeana and Americana
than among natives.
Tho origin ot tho cholera has not
been discovered. The body ot a person
who died of tho disease was exhumed
at Pateroa shortly betoro tho outbreak.
The belief is growing, however, that
cholera may llvo indefinitely in tho
wells of Pateroa and at times become
virulent. Many medical men aro in
clined to believe that the disease ia in
digenlous to the islands,
A land quarantine haa not been in
stituted and a cordon around Manila
wouid require 100,000 men. This free
dom from restraint has enabled the
board of health to secure co-operation
from tho natives in efforts to stamp out
Food Supply Running Short.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 23. Tho strike
in Moscow has resulted in practically
a general suspension of railway t raffle,
and tho effects of this are making
themselves felt in a general advance in
prices ot foodstuffs. It is almost im
possible to get food and supplies
through to Moscow, owing to tho tie
up, and.there ia much suffering in the
city, especially among the poorer class.
Somo heavy consignments ot food have
been stopped in transit, and it in im
possible to inovo the cars into the
Cruiser Lena to Leavo.
Vallejo, Gal., Oct. 23. It is expected
that the Russian cruiser Lena, which
haa boon interned at the Mare Island
navy yard for more than a year, will
depart from here about November 1 .
bbo will take on coal at San Francisco
after she has received her breechlocks
and other portions of her equipment
now stored iu tho oidnanoe department
at Mare Island. The olllclal orders ot
release from tho State department and
from St. Petersburg havo not arrived.
Death List Growing.
Chicago, Oct. 23. Later returns
from tho storm which swept tho Great
lakes for 30 hours, subatding yesterday
morning, increased the known death
Hat to 21 and tho number ot vessels
either lost or dajnaged to 42. Several
email craft aro missing, and it is (eared
ttiat tlio death Hat will grow.
Conquest -OEi Great
Is coming In
for n big
slinro of the general prosperity of tho
country, and It will only bo n few
short years when alio will rank with
any of the Northwestern Htaten in
agricultural greatness. The recent act
of tho Interior Department of tho
United States In setting asldo $1,000,
000 toward reclaiming three or four
hundred thousand acrea in the Milk
Itlver Valley Is but a beginning of n
much vaster development of thla sec
tion an tho needs grow apace. Al
ready the agricultural worth of this
to be famous valley has been ade
quately demonstrated In tho resulta
which havo followed tho Irrigation
worka nlrcady established. It linn
been successfully proven that all kinds
of agricultural products grow in great
abundance wherever Irrigation Is used.
The sol In naturally rich nnd needs
only moisture to make It yield prolific
ally. The Orent Northern Hallway's
main line practically cuts the valley
In two. The fact that the government
haa decided to begin Immediate oper
ations will prove a great Incentive to
tho people of that section who have
always believed In the future of their
country rind will open to settlement a
vast area of rich land to the home
seeker and Investor.
Professor Klwood Mead, the Irriga
tion expert of tlio United States De
partment ot Agriculture, has home en
thusiastic testimony to the great capa
bilities of the Sacramento Valley when
supplied with water, in canals and
ditches, for Irrigation. IIo says, in an
olllclal report, that Its available water
supply should make It "the Kgypt of
tho Western hemisphere."
The irrlgnblo area of the valley is
estimated to be more titan 8,000,000
acres, and calculations show that the
nverago annual discharge of the Sac
ramento Itlver at its mouth Is sum-
dent to Irrigate every acre of tills
great area. Professor Mead, after re
marking that it Is a sinful waste to
allow so much water to flow unused
to the sea, aavo for purposes of navi
gation, thus illustrates the astonish
ing variety of the products of tho
"Within a radius of five miles In
tho Sacramento Valley I saw every
product of the temperato and semi-
tropical zones which I could call to
mind. Apples and oranges grew atde
by side, as did oak and almond trees.
There wero oUtcs from the Houth and
cherrim from tba North. A. date palm
I - -" ww
went as the Betiti ot wheat or barlej
I ,. , . ...an mrn
or too row or Indian corn, aorae or
the stalks of which measured fifteen
feet In height. All of tlieae could
have been grown on a single acre, and
doubtless have been."
In another rejiort the same authori
ty expresses a like view, as follows:
In September last I saw a part of
the Sacramento Valley in Its most un
lovely aspect. One of the trips taken
wns from Chlco to Willows, two towns
about thirty miles aprfrt, hut tho road
thirty-five miles shrdlu cmfwyp shrd
traveled mnde tho distance about
thlrty-flvo miles. We crossed what is
Iotentlally one of the most fertile and
promising agricultural districts on this
continent. For scores of miles the
land rises by a gentle nnd uniform
slope from the Sacramento Itlver to
ward life foothills on either side. Wa
ter would flow over every licre of tho
country traversed without requiring
much labor In Its direction or skill in
the location of lateral ditches. The
plains of Lombard) arc not better suit
ed to Irrigation, nor tho soil of the
Nllo Delta more fertile than wero
these lands originally. For n half
century they havo been devoted to tho
unremitting production of cereal
crops. Each season tho crop has been
harvested, the grain shipped away,
nnd the straw burned, nnd nothing
done to replace the plant food with
drawn. A more exhaustive form of
agriculture cannot bo imagined. Al
though this surprising drain has gone
on for fifty years, it cannot continue
Tho absence of rainfall during tho
harvest period Is ono of the great ad
vantages of California, where the
needed moisture can bo supplied hy
Irrigation. It is likewise ono of the
greatest obstacles to diversified agri
culture where dependence Is had on
rainfall alone. The natural opportu
nities of tho district traversed are
equal to, If not greater than those of
the country surrounding. Illverslde,
Col., which has been appropriately
designated as the "Garden Spot of
America," but a difference In agricul
tural Ideas has produced a correspond
ing difference In conditions.
Tho bonanza wheat farm and tho
bonanza orchard were In accord with
tho spirit which from tho first has
dominated tho Industries of Califor
nia. It is a State of vast enterprises.
Men pride themselves on great under
takings and doing whatever they un
dertake on a largo scalo. Whent can
bo grown in this way. Tho man with
capacity for organization can look
after tho growing of 10,000 acres of
whoat, as easily as ten acres. It is an
Industry freed from detail. There Is
a period of seed time and harvest, and
long intervals of completo freedom.
It has nono of tho petty incidents
which go with tho management of a
farm whero thero nro chickens and
pigs, whero cows are to bo milked, aud
butter and eggs marketed, where each
month has Its duties, nnd whero there
In no time when something docs not

comes with hlgh-prlccd land and a
dense population, hut it docs not ap
peal to tho Imagination Itko tho plow
ing of field so largo that turning n
slnglo furrow requires n day's Journey,
or tho cultivation of the ground with
steam plows nnd harrows. Tho cut
ting, threshing nnd sacking of grain
at a single operation Is spectacular an
well as effective. In thin respect It
resembles the rnngo cattle business in
Its best days.
Acute indigestion may result from
many causes, but when it follows Im
mediately uptfn n holiday fennt, It ia
usually attributable to overdlstentlon
of tho ntomach, aggravated, perhaps,
by the presence of such Indigestible
things an pastry and plum pudding.

but In them It Is rarely so serious in
Its consequences as it in In adults,

An adult, on the other hand, strug

mination. The old ndvlco to quit a meal before
a feeling of satiety has been obtained

before a sense of discomfort has been
produced, and room should always b
