Isthmus Has Been Made 'Ilenllliy
as First Essential.
Working Year Will Bo of Only Eight
Months. Owing to Difficulties
of Rainy Soason.
Washington, IVc. 30. Conditions
on tho Isthmus of Panama and tho
progress which is being made on the
gigantic enterprise before tho Canal
commission were set foith In the an
nual report ot that body for tho year
ending December 1, submitted to Presi
dent Roosevelt today. According to
the repott, tho work up to this time
has been confined mostly to tho prepar
atory operations, although some exca
vation work has been in progress which
will bo mostly of uso in making esti
mates upon tho cost of future excava
tion. Sanitary conditions has also re
ceived much attention, and as a result
tho health of tho isthmus is now in
good shape.
Whllo this preparatory work has
been in progress, very littlo has been
done In the way of actual excavation.
Eleven steam shovels have been in
operation in Culcbra cut and approxi
mately 1.000,000 cubic yards of mate
rial have been removed. By this work
the levels of the cut are being pnt in
condition for the Installation of tho
largest number of machines which can
bo effectively operated, and data is
being gathered which will be use.'ul for
estimates of tho cost of future construc
tion. The chief engineer, John F. Stevens,
reports that tho working year will bo
of only eight months, duo to tho rainy
seawn. Tho problem of the Calebra
cut is simply a matter of disposing of
the material excavated, lie also states
tho necessity of obtaining more effl
dent labor, and asserts that there are
exceptional opportunities for yoong
men from the United States to secure
good positions.
A thorough business administration
ot affairs on tho istnmns, ho says, is
eesential. Tho old railroad usrd by
the French company, was in bad con
dition, especially the rolling stock.
The payroll on the Isthmus at pres
ent amount to approximately 800,
000 a month. An immediate appropri
ation is therefore necessary.
Cannot Be Extradited From France
and Germany.
Washington, Dec. 30. It is proba
ble that steps will soon be taken by
the State department to secure a revis
ion of the existing extradition treaties
with Franco and Geimany. Recent
events have drawn attention to some
very serious defects in the old conven
tions, and it is leared that txiore long
France and Germany will become na
vena of refage for a certain class of
.Anierieai criminals.
Within the past fortnight, the chief
of police ot Iloboken tabled a request
to the Paris municipal authorities to
. arrest and return to the United btatea
a. man named Sasola on the charge ot
grand larceny. The French authorities
were surprised at this request, coming
not through the American embassy,
and, finding that no regular application
had been made tor extradition, placed
him at liberty. In the course of the
proceedings it was disooveied tnat
there was absolutely no provision in
the extradition treaty for the surrender
ot a person charged with grand larceny.
The treaty with I'ruMia arw tn uer
man states, made in 1S2, likewise
fails to include garnd larceny as an ex
traditable crime.
Send Squadron to Relief.
Chicago. Dec- 30. A dispatch to the
Tribune from Washington says: The
administratioi. will send a squadron,
and not a single ship, to European
waters for use in the Itussian crisis, in
case American life and property ate
menaced. At a conference yesterday
between the president, Secretary Root
and Secretary Bonaparte, Instructions
were given Admiral Sigtbee, command
ing the cruiser division of the North
Atlantic fleet, to proceed to Madeira.
Then, If necessary, the squadron will
go to the Baltic.
Yerkes at Death's Door.
New York, Dec. 30. A bulletin was
issued tonight relative to the condition
ot Charles T. Yerkes, stating there had
been no change in the past 24 hours.
Dr. Loomis, tho attending physician,
added that, while there were no imme
diate symptoms of approaching death,
the end might come at any moment.
Mr. Yerkes' buslnws affairs in London
are said to have been recently so ar-
ranged that they will not, be Jeopard
Ixed by his illness.
May Quarrel With Germany.
London, Dec. 30. The St. Peters
burg correspondent of the Times re
port that the relations between Russia
and Germany are distinctly strained
and that there is a possibility ot inter
national complications arising from the
rebellion in the Baltic provinces.

dliectors ot tho Standard Oil company,

same proceedings.
Henry Wollman, Now York counsel

Law is Relaxed.
New York, lec. 29. Dr. F. F. Tong,
tho representative of the Chinese gov
ernment who is here to create a public
sentiment against tho exclusion law,
as administered, declared yesterday
that there would bo no abatement of
the boycott in China against American
goods "jntil the desired change was
He said that his most recent advices
indicate that the movement ot retalia
tion had spread to every province ot
tho empire. Everywhere merchants
and their customers are working to
gether to shut out goods made in the
United States. At Tien Tsln, Dr. Tong
asserted, mills for the production of
cotton and woolen goods have been
started, and a flour mill is in operation.
Women are heart and soul with the
men in the fight aaginst American
goods. In purchasing powder for their
faces the first question they ask is:
"Was it made in America?" It the
answer is affirmative, they refuse to
"What we aro seeking to accom
plish," said Dr. Tong, "is an adjust
ment ot the law and its administration
that will pot a stop to the injustice to
which Chinese in this country aro con
stantly sublected."
Heirs of Rebel Commodore Revive
Civil War Incident.
Washington, Dec. 20. Secretary
Shaw and 'he United States treasurer
are defendants in a snit instituted to
day in the Federal court here to recover
from the government the value ol 3ft
steamboats alleged to have been taken
from James E. Montgomery during the
Civil war by men representing them
selves to be military officers ot the
United States.
Mr. Montgomery, who is now dead,
was a prominent steamboat owner, and
lived in St. Louis. The suit is brought
by thi trustee of the Montgomery es
tate, who seeks to recover 1260,000 for
the heirs. The petition states that
Mr. Montgomery opposed secession,
but was compelled to cast his lot with
the Confederacy, as his property Inter
ests were chiefly in Mississippi. He
became a commodocre in the Confeder
ate navy, but was the first Confederate
officer to take the oath of allegiance to
the United States after the war. He
took the oath In the presence of Gener
al U. 8. Grant, his neighbor, who was
the first Federal officer to congratulate
him on his return to the sspport of the
Warships to Santo Domingo.
Washington, Dec. 29. The gunboat
Padacah left Norfolk today for Monte
Criatl. The Navy department has ad
vised Rear Admiral Bradford ot her de
parture, and that sh will be at his

thorizing the secretary of war to pur
chase the canal and locks at Oregon
City, provided they can be had for

Poor Service Rendered by Cheap
Clerks In PostoHlces.
Large Amount of Money Recolvod in
Dead Leltors Mailed to Fraud
ulent Concerns.
Washington, Dec. 28. In his an-
nual report made today First Assistant
Postmaster General Hitchcock says
that tho low salaries paid clerks In
first and second class postotllces aro do
creasing the standard of efficiency. It
is Impossible, ho says, to Induce etll
cient men to enter his branch ot tho
service, when tho salary to begin with
is but f00 a year, with no certainty
ot promotion tor perhaps several years.
My. Hitchcock strongly recommends
a discontinuance ot tho practice of In
stalling postotllces In public buildings
devoted In part to other branches of
tho government service. Tho best typo
of quartert t r poo to like, purposes, ho
says, Is a slnglo large room In a one
story building.
Much embarrassment has been oc
casioned the postal authorities to pro
vide emergency mail facilities In min
ing towns, and Mr. Hitchcock recom
mends an emergency appropriation of
176,000 to meet such requirements.
There has been an increase of more
than $18,000,000 in the amount ot do
mestic and of more than $6,000,000 In
the amount of foreign money orders
issued during the year over the year
While the number of undelivered
letters which are on their way to the
dead letter office dnring the year was
smaller than during tho previous year,
the number of undelivered letters with
valuable enclosnrea greatly increased.
General prosperity of tho wintry Is
given as ono reason; anotl or is tho
suppression by the department of eon
cerns nsing the mails for fraudulent
purposes. Mail tor such concerns con
taining money, money orders and com
mercial paper was received at the dead
letter office in unusual quantities.
Nearly 11,000,000 pieces of mail were
received at the dead letter office during
the year, including 1,008 that failed of
delivery in the Panama canal xone.
Over 1,600,000 cases ot alleged In
decent and scurrilous matter received
attention. In the summer tie influx
of offensive pictorial ot cards became
so great as to call for a sjeclal order
by the department looking to the abate
ment of the nuisance. As a result ot
this order, many thoutands of objec
tionable cards have been withdrawn
from the mails by postmasters and for
warded to tho department for destruc
Puget Sound Mill's Oriental Business
Falls 30 Per Cent.
Tacoma, Wash., Dec. 28. Accord
ing to Superintendent Armstrong, of
the Tacoma Warehouse A Sperry Mills
company, tho boycott In China Is prov
ing a serious menace to the milling
interests of Tacoma. Where years ago
full cargoes ot flour were being shipped
to China and mills were running over
time to fill orders, shipments to the
Orient have fallen off over 30 per cent
and mills are running only part of the
"The boycott in China has knocked
the bottom out of the flour business,
as far as exports are concerned," said
Superintendent Armstrong. "Local
freight keeps upVrell but we need for
eicn shipments. It would be good
business policy to get that boycott out
of the way as soon as possltle."
Ralph Smith agent of the Puget
Sound Flooring Milts company, says:
"We are shipping lees flour than
usual to China, and the boycott is re
sponsible for it. I don't know what
else eould be the trouble. Home trade
keeps up about as usual."

Washington, Dec. 27. Despite de

to Governor General Luke E. Wright,
there is no longer serious doubt of tho
