Trade Waves. v
Acording to the New York Sun,
* 'our aliare in the trade of foreign na?
tions is susceptible of illustration
by a series of wave lines whose force
lessens as the distance from our borders
increases. The rule bolds good with
only a few comparatively insignificant
vitiations. Os our north line lies
Canada, to M bom we sell 60 per cent,
of all ber imports. Northeastward. Nen
found&nd comes to us for a bant 37 pei
cent- of ber needs. Southward, our im?
mediate neighbor is Mexico. She ob?
tains from our market nearly 60 per
cent, of her importations. So nh east?
ward are Cuba, buying nearly 40 pei
cent. : Hay ti. taking a similar per cent
age; SantoDomingo, aking 55 per cent
., and the British West Indies, coming
for about one-third of their imports.
In the next trade wave to the south?
ward there lie the states <>f Central
America, giving us collectively abonl
-27 per cent, of their trade. Colombia
and Venezuela give us each about one
third of the business. Following
down the west coast, the rule holds
good with Ecuador at 20 per cent. :
Peru, 12 per cent., and Chili, 8 pei
cent. Along the eastern coast Brazil
gives us 9 per cent. : the Argentine,
10 per cent., and Uruguay, 6 pei
cent. ; while the interior coun?
tries are representd by Bolivia's Ui
per cent, aud Paraguay's two-thirds
of 1 per cent. Looking eastward,
Englano gives ns 20 per cent, ol
her trade: Germany, 13 per cent.
Belgium, 10 per cent. : Spain. 9 pei
cent. ; France, 8 per cen. : Italy, 9 pei
cent., and Bossia, 2 per cent. West?
ward, Japan gives us 16 per cent.
China, ll per cent. : the Philippines,
12 per cent. : Australasia, about 1(

more than a curious coincidence. Il
is probable that it is a correct indica

We are not yet trade bunters in ar
active and energetic way. and prox?

likewise a factor. The situation is a)

Sec of Anti-trust League on
-Roosevelt's Atitude.
The Bureau of Corporations Intended to
lasare Publicity Has Been Made One
of Secrecy. ?
Washington, D. C., Sept 20.-H.
B. Martin, a national secretary of the
American Anti-Trust league, has sent
a letter to President Roosevelt bitter?
ly attacking his attitude toward the
trusts and flatly 'accusing him of
bracking his word.
Mr. Martin reminds Mr. Roosevelt
that counsel for the Anti-Trust league
repeatedly urg?d him in 2901,1902, 1903
and 1904 to prosecute half a dozen of
the oldest, most powerful and most
notorious offenders against the anti?
trust law, and says :
Fou will remember that after we
had furnished, even personally handed
to you at the. white house, positive
documentary, convicting proofs of the
guilt of these offenders, that both
yourself and your attorney general
made definite and positive promises
that you would take up these cases.
You will also remember how both
yourself and yocr attorney general
have brazenly broken your words and
failed to keep your promises in, those
Mr. Martin points out that the one
injunction against the Northern Secu?
rities ; company was not pressed
through to the supreme cu ort, and
asserts that rumors are afloat that
the hasty display of energy in that
case was far more benefit to one of the
rival syndicates, seeking a monopoly of
Pacific railway lines than it was to
the people.
*fThree year3 ago, Mr. Martin goes
ouy "the officers of the American
Anti-Trust league placed in the pos?
session' of your administration positive
proofs, inconestable documentary
evidence of flagrant and enormously
oppressive and incurious violations of
the law on the part of half a dozen of
the greatest trusts in the United
States. . Both you and your attorney
general repeat?dly promises, some?
times orally and sometimes in writing,
that these cases would be taken up
and proceeded with. Every one of
these promises yon have broken."
Mr. Martin denies the president's
claim that the bureau of corporations
was a Republicans measure, declaring
it ?as put through by a Democratic
"And what have you done with the
bureau of corporations since it was
organized?" Mr. Martin asks. "You
appointed your secretary, Mr/1 Cortel
you, as head of that department and
then, after he collected all the data
possible about violations of the law
on the part of the trusts, did you
transmit these data in a proper report
to congress or the people? On, no !
"The bureau of corporations, which
was intended as a bureau of publi?
city, yen have made a bureau of sec?
recy, and you transferred Mr. Cortel
you from head of that department,
with ali this secret information about
the trusts in his possession, to the
position of chairman of the Republi?
can' national committee, where he can
use this information to sandbag con?
tributions out, of the trusts for your
j campaign as president
"Against all the hundreds, aye,
thousands, of men who have been prac?
ticing plunder and extortion upon
the people in violation of the anti?
trust law which provides for their
punishment, you and your attorney
general have never caused a single
warrant to issue, nor. a single arrest
to be made, nor the conviction of a
single one to be secured.
"Nay, even worse, for to the most
powerful and notorious of these
offenders against the anti-trust law,
the proofs of whose criminality had
already been placed in your hands,
you extended the hospitalities of the
white house and treated them in 3very
way as if you were not perfectly aware
that they were.-guilty of one of the
meanest, most monstrous and most
inexcusable offenses of modern times.
And you in return accepted their hos?
pitality. You accepted gifts of great
value Irom men whom you knew were

Melrose, Mass., Sept. 21.-An out?
ward bound electric car containing
thirty-two persons, was blown to pieces
in this city tonight by striking a fifty
pound box of dynamite that had fallen
off an express wagon. Six persons
were killed outright ; three more died
of their injuries within an hour, and
nineteen others on the ?car were taken
to the two hospitals suffering from
severe injuries. At least a score of
persons in the immeditae vicinity of
th? explosion were, hurt by flying

little hope of their recovery. C. H.
Andrews, of Melrose, where the ac?
cident occurred) had both legs broken
and one of them was amputated this

Rock Hill, Sept. 21.- The first reg?

lege was met by the assembling of all
pupils and teachers in the auditorium
at noon today. President Johnson is
absent. He had taken his vacation
during the month of August, and has
been detained by a temporary indis?
position which prevented him from
leaving Atlantic City at the time ex?
pected. He has appointed Dr. J. P.
Kinard, the head of .the department
ol' English, to act in his stead.
Tbe number applying for admission
to Winthrop is greater than that of
any previous session. The number of
new pupils, which could he admitted,
was about 150, but the number of ap?
plicants is over 1,000. Nearly all the
pupils who have been admitted were
present this morning, j.
Miss Minnie Macfeat, the head of
the kindergarten department, xs ab?
sent on account of sickness. All the
other teachers are present. Examina?
tions for pupils- who wish to enter,
and for pupils who desire in this way
to make up the work of last term, are
now in progress. These will end and
regular work will begin not later than
next Tuesday.
The proportion of old students who
have returned is very large. Every
sign points to a prosperous year.

St. Petersburg Review of Situation.
St. Petersburg, Sept 22.-There is
further delay in the receipt of decisive
news from the front. The situation at
Port Arthur remains a blank, though
it is felt that important developments
may be even now occurring there.
The movements in the north are still
of a tentative and preparatory charac?
ter on?botli sides, which have not yet
crystalized into a definite clash of
forces at any one point. A resumption
of the Japanese advance is now expect?
ed to occur any day. It is the third
week since the fighting at Liao Yang,
and the Japanese have had time to
transport reinforcements from Yinkow
and bring up sufficient men to the
front to replace their losses, but it is
not improbable that several days will
intervene before the armi?s come to
close quarters. The interval is being
devoted on both sides to feeling out
the strength and disposition of the op?
posing forces.
The Japanese will probably attempt
to capture the passes of the Da Moun?
tain range, running half way between
the Hun and Taitse Rivers. The pos?
session of these passes is important
for the Japanese, as it will not only^
enable them to march northward, but
also screen the movements of thetr,
troops from the prying gaze of Rus?
sian scouts.
It is fully appreciated here that the
Japanese must try for the possession of
Mukden, as otherwise it will be diffi?
cult for them to provide their army
with winter quarters. Liao Yang does
not afford sufficient accommodation,
although many houses there escaped
destruction in the recent battle.
Movable huts are quite unsuitable
for the housing of .Tapanee, owing to
the severity of the climate. The aver?
age winter temperature there is forty
degrees below zero, and the cold is
intensified by continual winds and an
almost entire absence of snow. In
spite of this, however, the campaign
will probably continue during the win?
ter if the Japanese succeed in getting
into Mukden. In this contingency,
Gen. Kuropatkin, for various reasons,
will not be likely to allow the Japa?
nese to remain in undisturbed posses?
sion pf this point, which is important
not only from a strategic but the poli?
tical point of view.
Gen. Kuropatkin Reports Losses.
St.. Petersburg, Sept. 22.-Gen.
Kuropatkin's reports under yester?
day's date that there is no change in
the situation about Mukden. He adds :
"A small detachment of the enemy
moved from Bueniaputize towards
Kaeutoulie in order to penetrate
north of Daling pass. The indica?
tions are that the enemy is endeavor?
ing tc flank our left Our losses at
Daling Monday were one officer kill?
ed, ten wounded, three men killed,
forty-five wounded. The exact Rus?
sian losses at the battle of Liao Yang
were 54 officers killed, 257 wounded ;
1,810 men killed, 12,023 wounded."
St. Petersburg, Sept. 23.-Gen. Ku?
ropatkin reports that the Japanese ro?
da}-assumed the offensive and have ad?
vanced from Benaipudzeto Finseitulin
which is twenty versts from Mukden.
Jap Success at Port Arthur.
Tokio, Sept. 22.-3 p. m.-While of?
ficial confirmation is lacking, it seems
certain that the Japanepe possess a
fort on another height westward of
Itzshan, which they carried by desper?
ate assaults, and have sauce resisted
all attempts to recapture by the Rus
sians. Both these heights overlook
Port Athur, offering -excellent gun
positions, which materially weaken the
Russian defence.

If Appears io be Developing Into
an Investigation of the Whole
National Guard of Alabama.
. Huntsville, Ala., Sept. 21.-The
military Court of Inquiry resumed its
examination of witnesses today rela
ive to the conduct of officers and men
of Company F. in connection with
the lynching of Horace Maples, col?
ored. Lieut. Morgan Smith was the
only witness and his testimony substan?
tiated that of former witnesses.
Col. Frazer, president of the Court,
stated that the purpose of the inquiry
was to ascertain if there is incompeten?
cy among the officers of this company ;
to discover who are the incompetents,
and ascertain who is responsible for
their continuing to hold commissions
in the National Guard. He declar?
ed the investigation may go even be?
yond this company.
At the afternoon session of the
Court Jailer Giles testified that sev?
eral of the men of Company F. were
so badly frightened that they were
worse than useless in the defence of
the jail. Some of the men, he claimed,
took refuge under beds and in closets
of the building, when the mob was be?
sieging the jail. Sheriff Rogers testi?
fied that he gave orders to the compa?
ny to take care of the jail and guard
the prisoner. He did not order the
men upstairs, he claims but gave the
command for them to assemble inside
the building. Practically every man
in the company testified that they con?
sidered themselves under the orders of
the sheriff. The court finished tak?
ing testimony this afternoon, and will
make a report to the Governor at an
early date.
George Frame, a merchant of Dal?
las and Tom Winkle, a cotton mill
operative, were arretsed late today for
alleged complicity in the lynching.
Wnkle is charged with arson and
Frame with murder.
Huntsville. Ala., Sept. 22.-Thomas
M. Riggins was acquitted tonight of
the charge of murder in the first de?
gree, in connection with the lynching
of Horace Maples. The case made put
by the prosecution in the trial today
was weak, and there as no convincing
evidence connecting the defendant
with the mob.
The Great Cotton Kinp.
Secretary Hester, of the New Orleans
cotton exchange', has reviewed the
cotton crop, and his fingres and facts
are most interestingr He shows that
the commercial crop for 1903-4 was
slighty in excess cf ten million bales.
This is the lowest since 1899-1900, yet
this has been the most! valuable crop
ever raised in the South." Though it
was 700,000 bales lower than the pre?
ceding season, it was worth $137,000,
000. Though it was 670,000 bales less
than the crop of 1901-02 it was worth
$180,000,000 more. Though it was I,
283,000 bales lesg than the bumper
crop of 1898-99, it was worth $335,000,
000 more. A difference of a million
and a quarter; bales made the small
crop worth more than twice as much
as the big crop.
He estimates that the average value
of cotton per bale,*?or 1903-04 was $61.
68, and this would give a total valua?
tion of $617,501,58 for the crop. This
by no means represents the actual
"value of cotton production for the
year. There is half a ton of seed to
every bale of cotton and this would
make over 5,000,000 tons for the entire
crop. Every ton of seed will produce
36 gallons of oil valued at $10.80, 750
pounds of meal valued at $7.50, 30
pounds of linters worth" $1.50, and
750 pounds of hulls worth $1.12, mak?
ing a total of $20.92. The value of
these by-products for the, season just
closed is therefore about $105,000,000,
which, added to the value of cotton,
would make about $722,000,000.
Of this sum the transportation eoni
panies get about $100,000,000.
To the American mills the planters
sold 3,946,219 bales; of this 2,026,967
went to Northern mills and 1,919,252
to Southern mills. So that the South
is rapidly gaining on the North, in
this respect, as to manufacture.
Think of the great army of men
making and handling this one South?
ern crop and its by-products. Think
of the euormous value cf this one crop,
and its'importance to the whole world
After that experience of last season,
we do mo wonder that European na?
tions are frantically or adventurously
searching everywhere in Asia and Af?
rica to find a cotton region to rid them
of dependence upon the South.
They may ultimately do so, but it is
doubtful. For many years they will
fail and, we think, always.
The Soutli holds the primacy and is
apt to keep it. A great future is be?
fore her and we surmise that at no
distant period, New England will
wish that sne baa not pushed race is?
sues to such extremities as war, since
one of the results will be largely lier
own undoing.-Augusta Chronicle.

President Roosevelt Requested to

Similar to That Held at

Washington, Sept. 23.-A scene
which will probably become historic
will be enacted in the White House
tomorrow afternoon. Members of
the Inter Parliamentary ?nion repre?
senting the Parlaments of the world
united to advance the principles of
arbitration will then formally call
upon President Koosjevelfc to. invite
tlie nations to participate in a* peace
conference, similar to that held five

to the effect were adopted at a confer?

The Cost of Office.
It was not squeamish, to put it
gently, in President Roosevelt to put
bis corporation invesigator in the job
of raising money for election purposes
from the corporations. Squeamish?
ness, however, is not the President's
long snit. The appointment of Mr.
Cortelyou to this position had one
advantage which deserves respect
apart from the probability that the
money is being used with less cheerful
disregard of moral rules than char?
acterized Mr. Cortelyou's predecessor.
By having in the position a confi?
dential acqaaintnce, Mr. Roosevelt
will knew just what he is committed
to as the price of office. For over
three years now^,he has been held up
on every hand by people who claimed
to hold promises from President Mc?
Kinley. "When you sard you would
carry out McKinley'? policies, it im?
plied, of course, that you would also
make McKinley's promised appoint?
ments, ' ' they have argued." The Pre?
sident has reaped much advantage
from Mr. McKinley's ability to dis?
cover able men, but he has, on the
other hand, suffered frequently the
supposed necessity of making appoint?
ments that were distasteful to him.
He may not be able to judge men's
talents as shrewdly his predecessor,
but for what he do2, after the 4th of
next March he alone.will be respon >i
ble, and this responsibility of freedom
ought' to result in a lessened influence
for the professional politicians. Mr.
Cortelyou's conduct of the campaign
should have the samo result. If any
promises are made in return for funds,
they will be ojiy these to which the
President consents, and he will fcnow
precisely what they are.-Collier's for
September 24.
The Stomach is the Man.
A weak stomach weakens the man, be?
cause it cannot transform the food he eats
into nourishment. Health and strength
cannot be restored to any <?ck man or
weak woman without first restoring health
and strength to the stomach. A weak
stomach cannot digest enough food to
feed the tissues and revive the tired and
run down limbs and organs of the body.

Catarrh of the
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth is exactly thc
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re?
peated attacks of indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus?
ing the glands to secrete mucin instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
