TRA D E
TURKEYS ABE FIRM
No Over-Supply of Fancy Stock at
WHITE PINE LUMBER STRONGER
Advance In List Prices Will Undoubt
edly Occur Within the Next
In north-west produce, interest the first
three days of tie week has centered In the
Thanksgiving poultry situation. Conditions
have toeen most favorable to shippers, and
there has been no glut to force prices down
at the last moment and cause loss to local
handlers and country shippers. Outlook to
day is that receipts will be heavier than can
be handled. The trade was generally well
supplied last night, and late arrivals will not
move aa freely; but there will be a tendency
to secure outside prices and carry over the
surplus for the Saturday and Sunday trade.
Prices may be slightly lower after Thanks
giving, but there will not be the usual rad
ical decline. Tendency Monday and Tues
day on fancy dressed turkeys was higher,
and an advance of half a cent occurred in
all etock that would grade as fancy. As
usual, much thin and poor stock was received
In spite of the warnings sent to shippers, and
generally this had a draggy tendency.
In other lines of produce, the market con
tinues firm, -with advancing tendencies on
some lines. Btrlotly fresh eggs are advan
cing and have gained 1 cent in three days,
■with about the came advance reported in
storage. Outlook Is for still higher prices,
owing to the strong condition of eastern mar
kets. Butter contiues steady, with fresh ex
tras In creameries in short supply. Extra
dairies are in somewhat better supply, but
•situation Is showing no tendency to weakness.
Cheese remains steady and unchanged. Dried
beans and dried peas are nominal. A scar
city of fresh fish Is reported, especially do
mestic caught. Frog legs are nominally
higher and are firm. White stock in potatoes
is firmly held, especially No. 1, and further
advances may be looked for. Market at pri
mary buying points are stronger. Onions are
steady. A corner In squash is reported the
country over, and local market is bare of
Heavy Movement of Fruits.
The week has been a most active one in
fruits. Oranges have been moving freely,
owing to the much better suplles and greater
variety offered for the Thanksgiving trade
than In most previous years. General ten
dency of values has been steady. Fruit re
ceived this week has been of better qullty
than early receipts, especially In the matter
of color and swetness. Bananas have moved
freely In both fancies and choice stock. A
steady level of prices has been maintained.
Cranberries have recorded the largest move
ment of the year thus far, during the week
ending to-day, with local market well sup
plied and prices steady. Sweet potatoes are
a free seller and values are steady. Other
lines of fruits have moved more freely, with
]>rices generally well maintained at the pre
White Pine Lumber to Advance.
Market on white pine lumber has visibly
strengthened during the past -week and is
dtvidedly stronger to-day than a week ago.
OuUook now is for a general advance of list
prices between Dec. 1 and 10, and It is ex
peoted in some quarters that this advance
■will apply to nearly all lines, including Xo.
2 boards in all descriptions, and those of bet
ter quality, dimension in 12, IS and 20-foot
lengths, largo timbers, Xo. 3 wide boards,
lath. Biding strips, selects and all the de
scriptions of which thi3 and other northern
markets are short. Greater strength in the
situation Is due to the increasing demand at
a time of the year when market is usually
quiet. Movement of white pine for the month
of Xoveniber is undoubtedly 7,000,000 feet in
excess of the same month a year ago, and
this, oa the basis of percentage, would
amount to an excess for the month of 20 per
<x>nt or over. Figures will be available next
week to chow the exact increase, and if
movement continues as heavy during the
next few days, till the end of the month,
there may be a etlll -wider increase in the
Retailers continue to be free buyers and
as nearly as can be ascertained have small
stocks in yards and are buying to meet cur
rent requirements from the trade. Lumber
manufacturers report that most all orders
received at present are for quick shipment
and this indicates that the retail trade is
pursuing a hand to mouth policy and must
secure lumber as early as possible to fill
orders on file. Travelers also report that
stocks in yards are at a very low point, with
retailers' assortments almost as badly broken
as wholesale stocks. Mild weather the past
fortnight has Increased demand owing to the
commencement of numerous building projects
at country points.
Mild weather the early part of next month
•will continue to stimulate consumption.
Heavy Log Scale for Season.
Figures showing the Minneapolis log scale
for 1W)1 were made publio yesterday, show
ing that total scale this season was 437,720,640
feet, as against 5C3,119,950 feet for last sea
son. The log scale this year is the second
largest in the history of the Minneapolis
district, being exceeded only by the figures
of ISS9, which showed 454,557,780 feet of logs
handled, or an excess over this year of 17,000,
--0<» feet in round numbers. Log Burvey this
year exceeds third best record at Minneapolis
by 69,000,000 feet and there is no longer any
question but that the total white pine cut at

this point Is very closo to the banner record
of 1899, owing to the fact that more No. 8 and
low grade boards have been produced and
much stock that was regarded as waste in 1899
has been utilized in this direction to be used
by local manufacturers in various lines.
Hardware Prices Steady.
General tone of hardware market is steady,
with business somewhat qulvt this week,
owing to the approach of a holiday. Wire
nails declined last Friday 5 cents a keg and
are on a steady basis at late reduction. De
cline was due to competition here and at other
points from outside producers. Barb wire is
steady and unchanged. Demand is nominal.
Plain wire is in fair supply at unchanged
prices. Cordage continues to maintain a firm
tone with sisal rope up V 4 cent owing to short
supply of sisal hemp, and manila rope un
changed. Movement is only fair at this point.
Loaded shells in broken cases have been ad
vanced 6 per cent. Rifle cartridges continue
in short supply, owing to excessive demand
this fall. General tone of builders' hardware
is strong and advances are in prospect. As
sociated manufacturers of leather belting have
advanced list prices, retaining former dis
counts. Steel goods are steady and un
Interest in future goods Is Increasing. Job

Hammocks open at about former prices. Prices

The net gain was 60 points, with buyers at
$29.86 for spot. At London, values took an
other upward course, gaining £1 2s 6d for
spot and futures closing strong at £117 2s 6d

HORSES FOR ITALY
The Italian Artillery Arm Being; Sup-
plied Prom Chicago.
Chiogo, Nov. 27.—A conspicuous feature of
the market to-day was another large order for
artillery horses for Italy, being executed by
Colonel W. G. Crawford, Newark, Ohio. The
animals selected are grade drafters, weigh
ing around 1,160 to 1,300 lbs, a grade that
for the past four weeks have been heavy
sellers. The bulk of the purchases are me
dium grade bussers and this new feature of
the trade has strengthened the value of this
particular class of arrivals.
The near advent of winter and the early
opening of the logging season has stimulated
the demand for plain heavy drafters, which
opened stronger with bulk of Bales on a more
satisfactory basis. ,.. n •• ■

PLEA OF TERLINDEN
WAISTS TO BE KEPT LOCKED UP
German Bank Director's Case Hinges
Upon an Extradition
»«• Torh Sun Sptxiial Servie*
Washington, Nov. 27. —It Is not often
that man himself asks the supreme court
for an order to keep him locked up, yet
that Is the effect of a motion made to
day on behalf of Gerhard Terlinden, now
under arrest at Chicago. The real point
at issue, however, is the life of the ex
traditlan treaty between the United
States and Germany and Terlinden wants
to be kept in custody of the United States
marshal and Incidentally out of the hands
of the German police officials until the
supreme court can decide upon his con
tention that the .treaty is a dead letter.
The existing extradition treaty was
made In 1853 with the Kingdom of Prus
sia, and Terlinden claims that treaty was
terminated by the creation of the German
empire and the adoption of the German
constitution of 1871, and that under that
treaty he cannot be delivered oxer to the
German authorities for an offense com
mitted in that country. Even if it were
held that the treaty of 1853 were still in
force, he claims that the offense with
which he Is charged Is not an extraditable
one under its provisions. He therefore
asks the court to pasa upon the validity
of the treaty, and in the meantime not
deliver him over to the German authori
ties, as he understands a warrant for
his extradition has already been issued
by Secretary Hay and is now in the hands
of the German ambassador.
Terlinden was one of the directors of
a bank at Duisburg, Germany, and was
arrested at Chicago as a fugitive from
justice at the instance of the German
government on the charge of forging and
disposing of certificates of stock In that
corporation to the amount of 1.500,000

THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
SHOULD HAVE CUBA
Reasons Why the United States
ISLAND'S CONDITION VERY BAD
Captain of the Port of Havana a
Naval Officer That Does Not
Hesitate to Talk.
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 27.—Lieutenant
Commander Lucian Young, v. 8. N., cap
taia of the port of Havana, is in Louis
ville en route for Washington for a brief
stay and then to return to his po3t.
Lieutenant Young said:
Since the military occupation of Cuba there
has been a disposition on the part of the
island officials to comply with the Teller
resolution, and in doing so, there ha 3 been
no modification of the laws of tho island and
the economical question never has been dis
cussed. The result is that the affairs of
Cuba are in the hands of a lot of political
and professional revolutionists, who have
nothing to lose and everything to gain. Su
gar is being sold at $3.13)4 on the docks, when
it cannot be raised in the Interior for less
than $3.70. Not 10 per cent of last year's
tobacco crop has been sold.
A committee has been sent to the United
States to ask for reciprocity, which means
a stepping stone 4 to annexation. Why not
annex the island and be done with it? Every
move means that ultimate result. So far as
the sugar industry is concerned, the United
States last year consumed a little over two
million tons, of which 700 tons was furnished
by Louisiana and the Hawaian islands, on
which no duty was paid. Only 336,000 tons
were raised in Cuba, and that was raised
on eight per cent of the ground available
for cultivation. Out of the great quantity
of sugar supplied the United States, 90 per
cent of it came from Europe, especially from
Germany, for which the UnitdG States had
to pay duty to cover the bounty that is paid
by the German government for exportation
of its product. There is only $15,000,000 in
vested in the beet sugar industry in this
country. There can be no competition be-
tween beet sugar and cane sugar grown in
Cuba. If the United States should annex
Cuba, with free introduction of products, and
with the development of 92 per cent of the
uncultivated land, we could control products
for which we have to go to European coun
tries and ask favors of them.
The comments of many people on the ac
quisition of the Philippines, I believe, are
unpatriotic, because the European powers
have made every effort to partition China.
France wants Tonquin; England the Yang-
Tse valley; Germany Shang-Tung; Russia
Manchuria; and the only thing the United
States demands is an open-door policy. Should
these powers accomplish their designs, the
United States should control the Philippines,
by which every fleet of foreign powers must
pass on its way to the orient. So with Cuba.
We are to control the isthmian canal, and
Cuba is the absolute defense to the com
merce of the Carribean sea, the Gulf of
Mexico and the eastern approach to the canal,
and should be a military base for the United
Cuba can give to the United States but
one concession, and that should be annexa
tion; for we cannot determine privileges of a
foreign power on fortifying the "Port of
Call" without explanations and arrangements.
Furthermore, we have spent $700,000,000 in
liberating Cuba, but the Cubans do not seem
satisfied, and ask us to give them independ
ent government and the Teller resolution.
Then they want us to get out of the islands
and sacrifice $26,000,00 which is being paid
in duty from imports. The only salvation
for Cuba is absolute acquiescence to the man
dates of the United States. In my opinion,
Cuba should be given home rule under a
governor appointed by the United States,
with power to veto any act that, they may
make, subject, of course,- to the approval of

"JOHN D. HOFF, Secretary:'
The opportunities for buying oil stock in companies whose future is
problematic are many. The opportunity for buying stock in a company
which is now an assured success at only thirty cents a share, is something
notable and remarkable.
Since our offer of 300,000 shares at thirty cents, two oil wells have been
struck on our property, making the enterprise one which cannot fail. The
investor is given, for a short time, a chance to secure this stock at only
one-fourth its par value. This opportunity will remain open only until
There is a ready market for our product and dividends will be paid as
You have probably read the previous advertisements of the Combined
Oil Land Company, but we will recapitulate briefly the location and pros
pects of our properties.
The Combined Oil Land Company of California owns outright 5,000
acres in the best California oil section, 2,060 acres are in the Fullerton
oil fields in Orange county, and 2,940 acres are in San Luis, Obispo and
This property was selected by Mr. Frank Brophy, the well known oil
expert, for many years with the Pacific Coast Oil Company, now a Dart of
the Standard Oil Company. •"-**» v
The Santa Fe Railroad Company has twenty-eight producing wells
seven miles from our property. The Fullerton Company has four produc
ing wells six and one-half miles from our property. Several other com
panies whose properties surround ours on every hand have struck oil and
are pumping night and day.
Mr. Brophy is himself personally supervising the drilling of our wells,
two of which have already proved producers as stated above. The oil
produced is high grade refining oil, commanding the immediate price of
$1.80 per barrel.
From present prospects we expect to sell one-half our land at a price
which will enable us to pay one dollar dividend, return two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars to the treasury, and have the remaining half of our
land left to pump oil from, and go on paying dividends and increasing the
value of our stock.
These figures are based upon most conservative estimates, and the
fact that we have now struck oil in two of our wells shows that the esti
mates are most conservative.
California oil is now making fortunes on every hand. Our property
is completely surrounded by the very oil lands that are paying most
richly. The facts show that Mr. Brophy's judgment was correct and that
we have the very best property in the entire field.
The fact that we have struck oil makes our stock doubly desirable,
and the present offering will be exhausted in a very few days. Those who
are interested in the safest and most profitable investment now open to the
public should send their subscriptions at once.
