of cholera wero reported in this city

The slight Increase In the spread of

Revenue Bureau Opposes American
Wines In Medicines.
Washington, Oct. 20.- -Tho Internal
revenue burenu Is strongly optioned to
tho contention of tho California grape
growers fur n reverse) of thu commit
tee's ruling of March 2, 100H, which
Inhibits the use of fortified American
sweet wines III thu manufacture of pro
prietary medicines or comounds. To
do so, In thu opinion of olllcials, would
Im to violiitu the law and to deprive thu
government of many millions in reve
nue annually. This would be accent
pUshed, It is ixilnted out, by tho gen
eral substitution In the manufacture of
proprietary medicines, etc., of non
taxable sweet wines, which have been
reinforced by tho ndditlon of a preser
vative acid, of non taxable grafie bran
dy for spirits which aro taxed $1.10
per gallon. Tito purpose of tho law
which does not require n tnx to be paid
on grape brandy when used for this
specific pur(Mso is said to have been
solely for tho encouragement of the
grnpe nnd sweet wine Industries.
Commissioner Capers has received n
letter from Senntor Perkins, of Cali
fornia, advocating the reversal, nnd
transmitting a copy of a resolution re
cently adopted by the Manufacturers'
and Producers' association of Califor

Trade Loses $1,500,000 Weekly by
Cotton Lockout.
London, Oct. 2C.Thc shutting
down of COO mills as the result ouf the
cotton trade lock out has reduced tho
consumption of engine coal by 700,000
tons per week. Calculated at $2 per
ton, this represents a loss of trade
amounting to $1,500,000 a week.
Oldham, tho center of the spinning
industry, is the first of tho cotton
towns to feel the pinch of tho lockout.
Of tho 320 mills in tho town only 20
are now working. It is not tho opera
tives who have their lock out pay from
their unions to fall back on who aro
beginning to feel the pressure of tho
industrial warfare, but the shopkeep
ers, particularly at tho small shops,
who depended on tho custom of tho
mill girls.
No ono has the heart to buy anything
short of actual necessities. No new
' dresses are being mado in Oldham just
now, and dressmakers aro reducing the
, number of their workroom hands, and
the milliners' shops, of which tho fe
mals cotton operativo was tho generous
I patron, are deserted.
The situation was discussed at a
meeting of the distress committee last
night and the mayor haa summoned a
special meeting of tho council for to
night, when a deputation from the dis
tress committee will mako suggestions
for providing relief work.
