such disgraceful events. Citizens may.
indeed, go still further and have a receiver

GALLERY OF PORTRAITS

COf Ilecelveel Yesterday from
Providence, II. I.
"I am exceedingly anxious to learn the
present residence -of seme relative or friend
of E. MacdonaM, who was the first clerk
of the Indiana Supreme' Court under the
first State Constitution from 1S17 to lS2t"
said Robert A. Brown, clerk of the Supreme
Court, last night. Mr. Brown said that
when he took office he found the portraits
of a majority of his predecessors hanging
on the walls of the various rooms belong
ing to the clerk's suite and decided to at
tempt to obtain a complete gallery of por
traits of clerks of the Indiana Supreme
Court. The portraits to be found In the
office now are tlioe of Laz Noble, who
was clerk from to 1M5S; Theodore W.
McCoy. 1S6S-72; Charles Scholl. 1S72-7G;
Gabriel Schmuck. 1S76-S0; Jonathan W. Gor
don, who served by appointment from lSl
to lc2 after the death of Daniel Boyse. of
Lafayette; Simon P. Shccrin. from 1S$2 to
1 S SO, and Andrew M. Sweeney, from 1S!0 to
To carry out his project Mr. Brown imme
diately entered into communication with
such of the ex-Clerks as are still livng and
with the relatives and friends of those that
are dead wdth a view to securing portraits
of the former officials. He has secured a
promise from Gen. John Coburn and Henry
Coburn that they ' will furnish a portrait
of their father, Henry P. Coburn, who held
the office of clerk of the court from ls2o to
152, thirty-two years, which was longer
than the term of any other man that held
John P. Jones, who was clerk from lt'0
to 111, is now a helpless invalid and re
sides at Lagrange. His portrait will bo
sent to Mr. Brown in a short time. The
portrait of the lato Daniel Royse was re
centlv placed in the clerk's office by his
son. "Frank Royse. of Lafayette. Capt.
Alexander Hess, who was Mr. Brown's
immediate predecessor in the oflice. has
signified his intention to have a portrait
painted for this purpose. Mr. Brown also
has received a promise from William T.
Noble, who was clerk from 1 to lsiw). and
who now resides in Richmond, to supply
his portrait for the gallery.
When Mr. Noble's portrait has been
placed In the ufike the list wll be complete
with the exception of the portrait of Mr.
Maodonald, of whom, as has already been
stated, no trace can lie found. Mr. Brown
has made the most diligent effort to dis
cover the whereabouts of some relative
or friend of Mr. MacdonaM or to obtain
a picture from which a portrait of the ex
clerk might be made, but without success.
MR. BEACH'S PORTRAIT COMES.
An addition to the gallery of portraits
of Supreme Court clerks was received yes
terday when an admirably executed por
trait of the late William ' Banker Beach,
clerk from to im, came by express
from his family home in Providence, R. I.
The portrait w.as painted in oil by Jackson,
of Boston, an artist of note. 'I'nfortunately
the heavy gilded frame surrounding the
picture became badly damaged in transit
bv express from Providence and the pic
ture will have to be i turned East to have
another frame placed on It. Mr. Brown
said that the frame was one of the richest
that can be purchased.
The portrait was the gift of ex-Clerk
Beach's son. Charles H. Beach, a prominent
insurance man of Providence. In a letter
to Mr. Brown Mr. Beach raid: "I take
great pleasure in presenting my father's
portrait to my native State, the one he
loved so well and in which so many years
of his active, life were spent. The family
are deeply moved by the honor shown one
whose memory they so revere and grate
fully acknowledge your courtesy."
An interesting fact about Mr. Beach, the
subject of the portrait received yesterday,
is that he was the first man to bo ebcted
clerk of tha Supreme Court of this State
under the present Constituton. He served
from lv"2 to 1WV. Prnr to the adoption of
the present Constitution clerks were ap
pointed ty the court and held office at the
pleasure of that tribunal.
At th- conclusion cf his term of office
Mr. Beach went to Providence. R. 1.. where
he remained until his death a few years
apo. He became prominent in Demo ratio
pc'itics In that State and at one time ob
tained the nomination for Governor, but
was defeated in the ensuing election.

that business in all parts of the country
has been most carefully watching, tht;
general feeling is better than a wek ago,
although the disposition on both sides to
settle the steel strike has not yet re
sulted in any agreement, and the labor
situation is thus kept prominent.
"Official returns of pig-iron production In
the llrst half of the year snow a record
breaking aggiogate of 7.674.713 tons, ex
ceeding the remarkable output of the pre
vious year by 02.041 tons. The second half
or' lt01 has opened with a mucli greater
capacity of active furnaces, and the full
year promises a considerably larger total
than the 13,789,242 tons produced in 11 JO.
During the past week leading mills have
placed large contracts for early delivery,
and inquiries for all forms of finished steel
are abundant. There is less disposition to
pay fancy prices for products that were
advanced by the strike, which is an evi
dence of the general telicf in early ic
sumption of work. An unfavorable yho
ing for the first year in both exports and
cutput of coj per resulted in the nVfcl alter
ation in nominal price since the advance
to 17 cents eight months ago.
"Violent fluctuations have marked the
course of corn prices. The top price of
the previous week was not regained, but
traders on the short side of the market
were compelled to cover at a 1jss. The
decrease in marketing is not in proportion
to the advance in price. Whatever benelit
may have accrued from the high level of
prices it certainly has driven foreign buy
ers out of the market. Atlantic exports for
the week amounting to only 764.17s bushels,
against 3,10j.'Jol bushels a year ago, and
4.o03.4'J7 bushels two years ago, at a dif
ference in price of IS and 25 cents, respect
ively. Wheat is of less interest to specu
lators, but in legitimate trading it is espe
cially active. Western receipts for the week
reaching 6.508.311 bushels, against 5.020,r.l
bushels last year, and 4,734,364 bushels two
years ago, while, Atlantic exports were
4. 815,1 bushels, against 2,373.7fs bushels in
ItHJO, and 3,7ti5,7!7 bushels in ISM.
"Dealers in some drought-stricken dis
tricts have countermanded orders for foot
wear, and these cancellations are felt main
ly by Western makers, but as a whole the
industry is in a healthy position. Leather
is quiet, shoe factories buying lightly owing
to large supplies taken recently. Liberal
arrivals of hides tend to depress values.
Wool has at last risen slightly above the
lowest point in four years.

NEW YORK, Aug. 2. Bradstreet's to
morrow will say: "Copious rains through
out the Western half of the country have
had the expected effect of inducing a
more cheerful tone, and the feeling is de
cidedly more hopeful than it was a week
or two ago. Bradstreet's advices point
to the early corn crop as practically a fail
ure in the . leading surplus-producing
States west of the Mississippi, but late
ccrn undoubtedly has been saved, and, as
time elapses, estimates of production are
being raised. From the rest of the coun
try trade advices are in the main cheerful,
and despite the intense heat and drought
of July an extraordinarily large business
appears to have been done, which is re
flected In the bank clearances for that
month. Cotton crop conditions improved
in the South as a result of the recent rains,
and trade advices are correspondingly
more cheerful. Pacific coast crop advices
are also better, although shipping activity
is interfered with at San Francisco by
a strike. The Northwest will produce
crops largely in excess of last year, and
a heavy fall trade is anticipated in that
section. The poorest advices, naturally,
come from the central West and South
west, but It is significant that points like
Kansas City report that cancellations have
stopped and that the outlook is much
"The woolen mills are filled with orders
for fall delivery, and the spring weight
season has opened encouragingly. Wool
is being taken in liberal amounts by the
manufacturers, and is firm, as is also the
London market, at which buying for Amer
ica is reported liberal. Sugar is Irregular
and rather slower in demand. Lumber is
rather quiet, in sympathy with the ad
vancel stage of the season, for prices for
white pine are firmly held. Prospects for
the ending of the steel strike and the bet
ter tone of crop advices have made the
iron and steel trade more cheerful. For
the first time in some weeks special activ
ity is noted in the cruder forms, due to
the buying of 70,mM tns of bessenier and
basic pig iron by the largest single inter
est. Finish. i products are as active as
ever at all leading markets.
"It has been another weather market for
cereals. Following the break of last week,
however, wheat and oats appear to have di
verted from corn prices. The natural reac
tion lue to liquidation has weakened wheat,
aided by good spring wheat crop reports,
record-breaking receipts of new winter
wheat and the turn in the tide of visible
supplies, which have bgun to increase
after steady decreases for six months past.
The foreign croa situation appears no bet
ter and reiterated advices of damage to the
French crop come this week, color being
given to these by the continued active ex
port demand. Corn, after the sharp break
of last week, was close to the highest point
reached, on alleged information of damage
caused by the recent hot spell, previous to
the breaking of the drught.

COLORADO STRINGS, Col., Auer. 2. The
principal feature, of the Colorado quarto
centennial celebration In this city to-day
whs an address by Theodore Koo.evtlt,
Vice President of the United States.' on
"The Growth of the West During the Last
Quarter of a Century." On Ids arrival this
morning Colonel Roosevelt was welcome!
by the Governor and staff, veteran?, Rough
Riders, s-chool children and many others.
At 10 o'clock he was escorte! to North
Park, where he spoke In the open air to
an assemblage of lO.tM) people, who gave
Mm an enthusiastic reception and frequent
ly interrupted his remarks with applause.
In opening his adlress he declared that,
with the exception of the admission to
statehood of California, no other event em
phasized In huch dramatic fashion the full
meaning of the growth of eur country as
did the incoming of Colorado. He sketched
the system of colonial government that ex
isted prior to the settlement ami growth of
America, pointing out that up to that lime
no scheme had been devised under whicn
it was possible to preserve both national
unity and individual freedom.
Continuing, Mr. Roosevelt said: "Some
did better than others Knj,iand, for In
stance, did far better than Spain but in no
case were the colonists treated as citizens
of equal right in a common country. Our
ancestors, who were at once the strongest
and most liberty-loving among all the peo
ples who had been thrust out into new con
tinents, were the lirst to revolt against this
system; und the- lesson taught by their suc
cess has been thoroughly learned.
"In applying the new principles to our
aomiition we have founei the Federal Con
stitution a nearly perfect instrument. The
system of a close ly-knit and indestructible
union of free commonwealths bus enabled
us to elo what neither Greek nor Roman
in their greatest eiays could do. We have
preserved the complete unity of an ex
panding race without impairing in the
slightest degree the liberty of the indi
vidual. When, in a given locality, the set
tlers became suilieiently numerous, they
v.ere almitted t statehood, and thencefor
ward shared .ill the rights and eluth s of the
citizens of the oldest St-tes. As with ( Ydum
bus and the egg. the expedie nt see ms obvious
enough nowadays; but then it was so novel
that a touple of generations had to pass
before we ourselves grasped all its features.
At last we rew to accept as axiomatic the
two facts of national union and loal and
personal freedom. As whatever is anxlom
atic seems cornmt npl ice, we now attempt
to accent what has been accemp'ihed as
a mere matter of course. The very com
pleteness with which the vitally important
tasK has been lon- almost blimls us to the
extraordinary nature of the achievement."
Mr. Roosevelt paid a strong tribute to
the men "who greatly dared and greatly
did," and declare! the winning of th" West
was "the gieat epic feat in th- history of
our race." In conclusion he said: "l-'or the
sake, not only of ourselves, but of our
children anl nir children's chi'dren. w
must se that this big: Nation stand lor
strength and hone-sty, both at home ani
abroad. In our internal policy we ear.not

'hereafter, whether we will or not, we

It was found a few years ago that each
of the Inhabitants of Great Rritain con
