Petersburg, Va.. January" IS.
In a letter received to-day lrom Judge
j Walter A. Watson, Congressmen-elect
I Ironi this district surprise is expressed
'tha't there should be any impatience
'among the people of the city, as .had
been alleged in the newspapers, because
he had not made public proclamation
of his personal views in regard to the
post-office contest in Petersburg. He
had not known of any desire or expec?
tation on the part of-the public that;
he should pursue attojl a course. With
one exception no citizen of Petersburg1
i had ever requested such action, and !
only one of the Candida'es had notified
! him that he had finished collecting his f
j indorsements and was ready to submit i
'them. In addition to this." writes
Judge Watson, something like a year
must elapse before there is any vacau? f
in the Petersburg of flee to fill. a"*id until
the 4th of March "My own term of.
, office does riot begin, and I can perform
no official act.'* Judge Watson con- I
"The task of discriminating between
those who are personal and political
friends, is a painful one and ungracious
?I best, and as far as their and my per?
sonal feelings are concerned. the sooner
It were done the better. But the public
interest is more important than the
personal feeling of the individual.
"In tho district there are twenty'
post-offices of presedential size looking
to a change of administration sooner
or later. To each man seeking appoint?
ment I owe a fait chance to 6ecure and
present the indorsement of his fellow
. iti/ens : and to the people of each corn- (
inanity I owe a careful consideration
of tbeir business and political in?
terests. This requires labor, time and
"When the candidates for the office
at Petersburg advise me they have sc
ctiredrsuch indorsements as they desire,
and are ready to present them, without
delay, they shall have my earnest at?
tention: and the moment I shall have1
been able to determine what my duty
in the premises is to the people of Pe?
tersburg, they shall know my choice for
pott mast er.
"With much respect.
"WALTER A. WATSON"."

OREATEST TOY MARKET.
Gotham l.rsds All the Cities of the
World In the Trinket Trsde.
According to an interesting story in
the New York Sun. New York City is
by far and away the world's largest toy
market. The annual volume of trade
at wholesale f>r i? . ? is t75.O0U.a(W, and of
ithis a large part is shipped out of the
?country, mainly to the great fairs of
I Europe and Asia.
In mechanical toys and in toys rnude
' of iron. tin. lead and brass New York
has ranked first us the world's largest
, market for twenty years. More recently
? the local toy interest has branched out
in building wooden toy-making factories
j in the lumbering region, wheru much of
! t he refuse from sawmills makes fine ?u? k
j for toymakers itnd can be obtained at
such low prices that European makers
of wooden toys cannot lompete against
the larger products of American wooden
toys who push trade throughout Europe
There are 9.583 live paten's issued by
foreign nations to New York makers of ;
mechanical and other toys This as
sures a good market for those toys in
countries which posee.-s Mli.uuu.ouo chil?
Exports of toys from that city begin '
to be large in July, arid the trade holds
out until late in October, when all large i
consignments for the great marts of
Europe must be forwarded to meet
requirements for Christmas and New
1 Year trade. There are now residing
IIa New York City about 125 Indians
who do fine work in basketry and bead- i
work and in toys to the order of local ,
; toy-trade factories.
Rag dolls, all made by women and
girls in that city. are sold in all countries. 1
A Brooklyn woman who a few years ago '
began making rag dolls for one retail
toyshop now employs MO girls in her
factory and farms out work to M
women fan and around New York. A
Harlem woman who originated negro :
dolls handsomely dressed for skin to
well-to-do colored families, has built
up a national business and has found
a good market, through local toy ex- !
porters to North Africa, where many
kinds of American toys are distributed
by caravans over enermoue trading
A factor in making American toys i
popular in Europe in recent years is the
large number of gifts of ttjys sent j
from here by fathers, brothers or sisters
of the little Germans, Russians, Poles [
Austrians or Italians. There are many
Imitations of domestic toys in Europe, !
but the majority of buyers prefer the
genuin? American-mado toys, which,
while they cost a little more than the
imitation products, are far better in
Qjuality and last longer.

This Twisted Collar is Laundered by
The Royal Laundry 'Tiireka" Process
After months of experimenting and rigid testing the proprietor of the Royal Laun?
dry has invented and perfected a vegetable compound ("EUREKA"; which, when used
"Eureka" is mixed with ordinary starch while feeing prepared, and is applied by
specially designed machines to collars, cuffs and shirt bosoms and pleats. "Eureka"
is a VEGETABLE mixture without any ingredient that might injure the finest fabrics.
"Eureka" is Used Exclusively by
The Royal Laundry, No More
Cracked Collars or Split Pleats
The Royal Laundry "Eureka" process lengthens the life of collars, cuffs and shirt
bosoms and bands, eliminatirfg altogether the cracking, scaling and splitting which is
so objectionable. A collar laundered by the Eureka process can be twisted like a shav?
ing, and when released will immediately spring back into original shape,'showing no
signs of cracking or roughness. We guarantee new collars treated by the Royal Laundry
Eureka process to last at least four months.
The machines specially constructed for us apply the starch in such a way as to
distribute it equally over the entire surface, and the fabric comes out smooth and
pliable and ready for the ironing and finishing processes. There are no "blistered"
spots or wrinkles. Ail rough places are filled in, and a kidlike surface and smooth
edge is produced that gives a unique result to all work done by the Royal Laundry

Johnson Argues They Should
Pay Reasonable Tolls in
Philadelphia. January 25 ? Profes?
sor Kmory R. Johnson, special com?
missioner of 'he I'nited States on Pana?
ma traffic and tolls, in an address here
to-ntght. declared that the owners of
vessels in the coastwise trade will de?
rive greater benefit from the Panama
Canal than the owners of any other
levels: that double the rate fixed by
the President would not prevent coast?
wise carriers from using that waterway,
and that "in view of these facts it seems
just that those who derive immediate
benefit from the use of the canal should
pay reasonable tolls "
Professor Johnson, who spoke be?
fore the Amern an Academy of Political
and Social Seien-e studied the question
of canal tolls for the government be?
fore President Taft fixed the rate.
leading uf> to his conclusion that
coastwise vessels should not be exempt?
ed from tolls Professor ''>ht,?on said
the car.u' could be commercially eelf
suppor'tng. and continued
Ninety nine shippers out of 100 wiil
pay the same freight rates between the
two seaboards, whether there be tolls
or no toll* charged the ir dividual* or
corporations who own and operate
coastwise 'vessels. It will be only the
exceptiotially large producers and trad?
ers who ship in full vessel loads that
will secure lower transportation rate
because of toil exemption.
"The owners of coastwise ships have
been relieved from the payment t?f
tolls for the purpose of aiding the mer?
chant marine under the American
flag." be said
' The public funds, however, will go
to ship owners that need no aid and
not to ths owners of the American
vessels that serve our foreign trade?
vessels that need assistance.
Thete are reason! why the I'nited
States might will seek t-> have a strong

be desirable to have an equally strong

of South America to Buenos Ayres
and another through the Panama
