American Goods la Great Demand in South
American Countries.
Washington. April 29. American
coal finds a steady and ever increasing
market in Brazil, but our export trade
to Brazil, it is said, will never reach
its proper development so long as our
merchandise has to seek foreign bot
toms. It is pointed out that if a line
of modern steamers were operated be
tween New lork and Brazil, there
would be no lack of return freights in
coffee, rubber and like products.
American hardware, also, it is stated,
has earned a reputation for quality and
fininh which places it beyond competi
tion. It is a notable fact that many yonng
Brazilians are coming to this country to
complete ' their careers ol learning,
whereas, until recent years, the better
class from that country were sent to
Portugal, France or Germany to acquire
their literary, professional or scientific
training. Now also English is being
taught in some of the higher schools of
In the Argentine Republic the Amer
ican goods making the greatest headway
are tools, implements, cotton goods,
shoes and specialties. A banker of Ho.
sario recently reported that for the half
year ended JuneJiO, 1901, the increase
of transactions between hia, house and
the United states had been 131 per
cent, and he understood that other
banks had had similar experiences.
But whilewe are materially increasing
the aggregate of our trade with Argen
tina, here, also, the absence of direct
steamship communication is handi
cap. In Chile, where lumbering is the
chief industry in its , southern pro
vinces, practically all of the wood is cut
by mills of American construction. All
of the machinery used in the produc
tion of flour also comes from the
United States'.
On account of the political disturb
ances in Colombia, imports from the
United states have increased only
slightly. ,Tl.e imports from all other
countries have remained stationary.
United States trade with Ecuador
shows a gratifying increase, due to pur
chases for the Guayaquil-Quito railroad,
better and quicker transportation, low
er freight rates and the coming of
Amercian commercial travelers.
Pierce Insurgents of Simar Capitulate by the
Manila, April 30. General Frederick
D. Grant's expedition in the gunboats
Baseo and Florida, ' several steam
launches and native lighters, has
ascended the Gatidara river in the
Island of Samar, and has brought the
insurgent leader Guevarra and his en
tire command down to the post. Guev-
arra's command consisted of Rafet Pe-
bastin, Abki and 38 other. officers, 189
men and 161 rifles.
Three hundred insurgents with 131
rifles are expected at Catbalogan,
Samar to surrender formally to the
American authorities. Three thousand
bolomen, 28 of them armed with rifles,
have surrendered at Sulut, alto in
Surrenders in Negros.
Captain Kennon, of the Sixth in
fantry, reports from the island of Ne-
gros the surrender of the ladrone leader,
Rufo, with 158 officers and men of his
command, together with 12 guns, 140
bolos, seven spears and a few revolvers
and daggers. Captain Kennon says
this surrender means the opening 'up of
the whole of the southern coast of the
Island of Negros.
The cholera situation in the islands
does not show any improvement. Chol
era cases are reported among the Amer
ican soldiers in Carainea provinces of
South Luzon and elsewhere, but so' tar
few Americans have been attacked and
the disease is confined to natives and
Chinamen. In Manila there have been
555 cases and 445 deaths from the chol
era, while the provinces report 1,599
cases and, 1,169 deaths.
Men from United States Cruiser Chicago Get
Heavy Sentences.
Venice, Italy, April 30. All the
members of the crew of the Lnited
States cruiser Chicago, arrested for dis
orderly conduct here yesterday, have
been sentenced to terms of imprison
ment, ranging from three to four
months each. Captain Robert P.
Wynne, commanding the marine guard
of the Chicago; Robert E. Ledbetter.
assistant surgeon of the Chicago; Lieu
tenant John S. Doddridge, of the Chi
cago, and a marine named Wilfred
Langley are the men sentenced.
At their trial in the San Marco po
lice court, the prisoners admitted that
they were intoxicated when the disor
ders occurred, and pleaded that they
acted in self defense when mobbed by
the crowd. The public prosecutor de
manded a sentence of seven months' im
prisonment for Assistant Surgeon Ied
better, and sentences of six months'
imprisonment for the others.
It is understood that the prisoners
will pay the costs of the trial and com
pensate the persons who sustained in
juries as result of their disorderly
conduct. Two of the injured persons
claim 160 pounds each.
Richardson Return from Alaska.
Seattle, April 30. Captain W. T.
Richardson, United States army, who,
according to reports from the national
capital, was dispatched to Alaska to in
vestigate, with Lieutenant R. P- Em
mons, the leported destruction of Rus
sian monuments defining the interna

has returned from the north. He
would neither affirm nor deny that his
duties were to investigate matters bear

The Sound Farts W.IL
Washington, April 30. The Puget
sound navy yatd fared better than any
other navy yard in the United States
in the appropriations that are made in
the naval bill reported to the house.
The yard got everything that was asked
for it. Representative Dayton, rank
ing Republican member of the commit
tee, said that the committee ha been
thoroughly convinced that one of the
finest navy yards in the world can be
built economically at Bremerton.
Consequently the large appropriation
for that yard. 1

San Francisco Street Car Men Have Demands
San Francisco, April 29. The strike
on the street railway system of the
United Railroads, which went into
effect a week ago, it officially declared
off. Victory rests with the employes,
who are conceded all their piincipal
demands. The United Railroads have
granted an advance in wages, a 10 hour
day and in measure recognized the
carmen's union.
On the question of unionism the
agreement provides that the company
will maintain such regulations as will
enable full attention to all complaints
made directly by its employes; will
cause prompt investigation to be made
of such complaints, and when it discov
ei the same to be well founded will
rectify any wrongs found to eixst. It
will not, however, deal in matters in
volving the management of its own
affairs with other than its own em
ployes or committees thereof. The
company recognizes the right of every
person to belong or to refuse to belong
to a labor union, and it will discharge
no employe because of his connection
with such a union.
The company agrees to pay a flat rate
of 25 cents an hour, or 23, 'u cents an
hour, together with a bonus for long
service as the employe may elect. A
rate of 30 cents per hour will be paid
for overtime. All runs are to be fin
ished within 14 hours from the time of
commencement. The employe are to
be allowed full liberty when of! duty.
The Ex-Secretary of Agriculture and Founder
of Arbor Day Passes Away.
Chicago, April 29. Hon. J. Sterling
Morton, ex-secretary of agriculture,
died at Lake Forest., at the home of his
son, Mark Morton. For several weeks
Mr. Morton has been gradually failing.
The nature of his sickness had not been
determined, and a week ago he was
brought from his home at Nebraska
City, Neb., to Lake Forest for medical
attention. The change brought no im
provement, and he declined gradually
until death came.
Death was due to cerebral thrombus.
The illness of Secretary Morton dates
from last November, when he con
tracted a severe cold while speaking at
the stock show in Chicago. The cold
run into an attack of la grippe, and
Mr. Morton was in a hospital for some
time. When he was able to do so he
returned to his home in this city, where
he suffered a relapse. After a partial
fecovery he left eaily in January for
the City of Mexico, accompanied by his
son, Paul Morton, vice president of
the Santa Fe Railway. Mr. Morton
continued to grow worse in the South
ern country, however, and six weeks
ago he returned to his old home in
Nebraska. He then came to Chicago,
where it was believed be would have
better medical treatment. After he
arrived here he improved somewhat,
and it was believed for a time he would
entirely recovei from his ailment.
Last week he suffered a stroke of apo
plexy, from which he never recovered.
A second stroke proved fatal.
His three sons, Paul Morton, Joy
Morton and Mark Morton, were at the
bedside when the end came.
Spotted Fever Kills Eight
Missoula, Mont., April 29. The
spotted fever scourge in the Bitter Root
valley has broken out with greater vio
lence than at any time known within
the history of the peculiar disease.
Eight persons have already died of the
strange malady within a week, and the
deaths of several more are expected.
Today a number of cases were reported
to the authorities. The disease is un
known elsewhere, and thus far has
baffled the physicians. Nearly every
victim that contracts the fever dies.
The disease commences wi(h a fever
like typhoid, and spots begin to show
all over the body. The spots increase
in size and at death the victim is
spotted like a rattlesnake.

Peace Prospects Improving.
London, April 29. Cabling from Jo

Is the Geary Law Re-eaacted with Slight
Modifications The Operation of the Law
in the Philippines, Including Registration
of. Chines Now There, Is Placed in the
Hands of the Philippine Commission.
Washington, April 30. The con
fereeson the Chinese exclusion bill
have reached a complete agreement on
the bill. Their repost was submitted
to the senate and house in the after
noon, and in each instance adonted
without debate. The bill now goes to
the president for his approval, which
is assured by the Arm stand be has
taken for the measure.
The bill strikes out that portion of
the senate bill limiting the extension
of all existing laws to the life of the
present treaty, and re-enacts them so far
as is not inconsistent with the treaty
obligations until otherwise provided by
law, and extends the laws to our island
territory so far as applicable. It al
lows Chinese to enter for exposition
purposes and retains the provision re
garding certification in the Philippines.
r-enator Piatt, of Connecticut, a
member of the conference committee,
by way of explanation in the senate
stated that no definite limitation should
be placed upon the operation of the
reary law, as re-enacted, but that it
should remain in force until otherwise
provided by law. He explained that
the operation of the law in the Philip
pines, including a registration of the
liinese in the islands, had been placed
in the hands of the Philippine commis
sion, but the commission would have
no authority to admit Chinese to the

A Letter Throws Some Light on Gen. Smith's
Order Anent Filipinos.
Washington, April 26. Adjutant
General Corbin has received a letter
from Henry C. McCook, of Philadel
phia, in regard to the reported orders
of General Smith to destroy all Fili
pinos found in arms 10 years of age
and upward.
"Sergeant Brown, honorably dis
charged after lull service from Com
pany G, Second regiment, in which my
son, First Lieutenant Paul McCook, is
an officer," gays Mr. McCook, "visited
me this week. His company was sta
tioned in Tayabas province, and he
said he had never seen the water cure
practiced, or any other methods of tor
ture. I asked him what was the physi
cal standing of a youth of 10 years in
the Philippines. He answered that a
10-year-old lad would about rate with
a 15-year-old boy here. He further
lniomed me that boys of that age and
op to 12 could bear nrms, greatly to the
disadvantage of their opponents; that
he had seen youths of that age and two
or three years older among the insur
rectos and ladrones captured, and he
further saij that sometimes there
would be a considerable proportion of
such boys in the hostile ranks, as rep
resented by those who suirendered and
those taken prisoners.
"Of course, it is most shocking to
qjir ideas of what is allowable, even
under the extremest exigencies of war
fare, to think of children of 10 or 12
years of age as being subject to the
severities administered to their seniors.
Yet it occurred to me that the above
facts, if they be stated, may put a
somewhat different color upon the re
puted order of General Smith."
