A. Beals , forecast official in charg (

through sun disturbances :
, "If Mr. Serviss' theory is correct
the excessive heat being experienced
in the east should be correspondingly
felt in the North Pacific states , as we
are under the influence of the same
sun and situated in the same hemi
sphere. The facts are that the central
west has had a month more of tem
peratures averaging from 6 to 12 de

APPLIES TO ALL STATES HAYIN
Directly Aimed to Check Recurrence I
Montana and Idaho Registrars Cei

the National Capital.
WASHINGTON , July 2G. On a <
count of timber land frauds discovere
in Montana and Idaho Commisstone
Hermann of the general land office'na
suspended all proofs made during th
present year under the timber an
stone act pending conclusion of th
full investigation and inquiry begu
some time ago.
This aption appliea to all state wher
government timber land is purchase
and involves thousands of cases. Man ;
large companies and speculators , it 1
alleged , have had "dunimies" as agent
make purchases of these lands fron
the government. Commissioner Her
mann said today :
"Owing to the act of congress pei
mitting selections of valuable timbe
lands as indemnity for lands held fy
individuals and operations within th <
forest reserve a speculation in so-calle <
forest reserve scrip has started. B :
this means the owner may relinquisl
them to the government and take val
uable lands on the unappropriatec
public domain , or may convey his hold
ings to another person seeking to hole
the right of selection.
"This system provided great rivalry
among speculators and mining com
panies in the acquirement of large
tracts of timber lands. This has in
duced many others who are not own
ers of such scrip , or exchangeable
lands inside forest reserves , to avail
themselves of an earlier act of congress
approved June 2 , 1878 , the timber and
"This act limits each purchaser to
160 acres and expressly requires ap
plicants to swear that the purchase is
not speculative , but made in good faith
for his own exclusive use , and that he
has not made any agreement for the
transfer of his title. For many years ,
particularly the last year , this law has
been grossly violated and abused by
persons who perjure themselves before
the local land oflicers. 'The general
land office has directed its special
agents to report on any further cases
that may be discovered and all land
officers have been warned to exercise
the utmost strictness in the examina
tion of parties and witnesses.
"Many of the fraudulent proofs made
might have been detected had the reg
istrars and receivers at the local land
offices strictly applied the rules for
scrutiny of proofs of applicants. After
such proofs have passed the local of
ficers , showing regularity and apparent
good faith of entries , it is impossible
for the authorities here to detect error

THE LIYE STOCK MARKET.
Latest Quotations From South Omab
nnd Kansas City.
Cattle There was not a heavy run c
cattle , and as packers all seemed to war
a. few , the market did not show muc
change , even though Chicago was reporl
ed weak to a dime lower. There wer
about fifty cars of beef steers in th
yards and buyers started In fairly earl
and cattle began moving toward th
scales at prices that looked steady to
shade lower than yesterday. There wer
not very many cows and heifers on sal
and the market was active and just abou
steady all around. Buyers seemed to wan
the' stuff and as a result lt was not loni
before the pens were cleared. Bulls
salves and stags also sold in just abou
yesterday's notches. The better grade
were in active demand , but the commone
kinds were a little draggy. the same a
usual. There was not what might hi
sailed an active stocker and feeder mar
ket. The demand from the country show
ad quite a falling off and speculators car
rled over quite a few cattle. For tha
reason they were not liberal buyers.
Hogs There was another generous sup
ply of hogs , but the market opened ir
? ood season active and just about r
nickel higher on the good hogs. Packer ;
seemed to have liberal orders and it wa ?
not long before the bulk of the offerings
was out of first hands. Good mixed hogs
sold very largely at $5.72 % and $5.75. Thf
Jhoicer loads and heavier weights broughl
55.77 . and from that on up to $ fi.OO
which is the highest price paid on this
market in some time. The lighter weights
were neglected the same as has been the
sase for some time. The last end of the
market was rather slow and the advance
was largely lost.
Sheep There were quite a few sheep In
sight , but the trains were late in arriv
ing , and for that reason the market was
slow in getting started. When the sheep
did come in they had to be stored , which
made the market all the later in opening.
The demand , however , on the part of
packers was in good shape , and when
the sheep did begin to change hands just
about steady prices were paid for any
thing at all desirable. Lambs were also
In good request where the quality was
satisfactory. The demand for feeders
showed no signs of improving.

Navy Secretary Pleased to Graat Schley'
Bequest for Investigation.
DEWEY AND OTHERS fOR COINCII
Wishes to Give Santiago Oflloer Faires
Possible Hearing The Order Will B
Issued Soon and Become Effectlvt
WASHINGTON , July 25. Secretary
Long , in accordance with a request
from Admiral Schley , advised that of
ficer that he would order a court oi
inquiry to examine into the entire
matter of Admiral Schley's course ir
the Santiago naval campaign. Later
the secretary announced that , owing
to the extremely hot weather , the
court would not meet until September
and that he would turn over his recep
tion room to the court. The secretary
"It is too hot now and I don't be
lieve it would be comfortable for of
ficers to sit in their heavy full dress
uniforms during August. I issued an
order some time ago dispensing with
the wearing of full dress uniforms
during a court-martial , but this case
will be so important that every form
of official dignity will bo observed ,
even to the guard of marines at the
door. I propose to give the court the
use of the large reception room ad-
joining my office , which is a conveni
ent and commodious place. "
"Will the sessions of the court be
"Unquestionably" ' was the em
phatic reply. "I propose to make that
fact very plain. It 'would be a great
mistake to have a secret court. The
country has the right to know all that
transpires in the way of testimony of
fered. Personally , I should be very
? lad to have a court composed of a
large number of oflicers , but the naval
regulations restrict me to the selec
tion of three , I hope to name the
personnel of the court today and this
tvill give the judge advocate and re-
: order ample time to prepare a list
) f witnesses who are to be summoned.
This list will rssarily be quite
engthy and it will take some little
: ime to assemble the officers here. I
lo not believe that the session of the
: ourt will be prolonged , because ,
ifter all , a great deal of talk over the
Santiago campaign is like the Genii's
rapor , which can be condensed in a
imall bottle. "
"Will Admiral Schley be allowed W
lame witnesses ? "
"Admiral Schley , " was the reply ,
7ill be afforded every opportunity for
he appearance of all the witnesses ho
nay desire. He is also entitled un-
ler the naval regulations to be ren-
esented by counsel. "
While Secretary Long was not ask-
d whether the court of inquiry would
ie asked to form and submit an opin-
on upon the facts disclosed by the
nvestigation , it is considered quite
robable that this course will be pur-
ued. Unless the order" convening the
ourt expressly requires this opinion
o be expressed , its report must be-
onfined to stating the facts found.

Indications that Strike in the Steel Mill *
is to Be Allowed to Drift.
PITTSBURG , July 24. The strike
presents practically no new situation
and it appears' if the contending-
forces are settling down to a pron
tracted struggle. While the company
at the Wellsville mill received the ac
cession of a few men from the ranks
of the strikers yesterday , the number
is not yet large enough to justify the
mill in starting up in full. In the
meantime the Amalgamated men are
keeping a constant watch on the mill
and all the avenues that lead to it.
Pickets have been thrown out all
along the stre'ets and at the railroad
stations , so that nothing will escape
the vigilance of the strikers if the
company should bring any new men
At the Dewess-Wood mill in Mc-
Keesport everything is as before.
From unofficial sources , believed to be
conversant with the company's plans ,
it is said the management has no in
tention of resuming the operation ot
the plant at present. Nevertheless
the strikers are wary and evidently do
not believe this because they continue
to patrol the streets for the purpose
of keeping their eyes on anyone going
toward the mill. Pickets are lined
along the streets as well as along the
river front and strangers are kindly
but firmly asked to show who they
are and how it happens they are in
