Letter from an Expert of the Depart
ment nf Agriculture.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.-Secretary Wil
son has received a report from David G.
Fairchlld, the expert of the Department of
Agriculture, who, with Mr. Lathrop, a
wealthy New Yorker, is exploring the
world for new plants for introduction into
this country. The report is dated at Co
lombo, Ceylon, and discusses general con
ditions in China, lie says the missionaries
frightened out by the recent troubles are
returning to their posts, and that the for
eign merchants claim that the general out
look for trade is good in the region of
Shanghai. American trade, he says, i.s more
than holding its own aganist that of other
countries, but adds: "Japans trade has
greatly increased in China of late, and she
is not only an active, but may become a
Mr. Fairchlld went to Cnnton In search
of the South Chinese peaches and plums,
scion3 and trees of which he announces he
has shipped here, together with some prom
ising litchiia, bamboos and persimmons for
California and Florida. He says producers
and shippers in China and Japan are much
interested in the iinal outcome of the ex
periments of this government In the home
production of tea, but apparently are skep
tical and believe the cost of picking is too
great for the industry to succeed here.
The American occupation of Manila has led
to a remarkable increase in prices of labor,
hotel accommodations and food products in
China. Coolies' wages have greatly in
creased in Hong-Kong tdnce the Spanish
war and new enterprises complain of a
scarcity of labor. Hotel prices are 50 per
cent, higher than before the war, and resi
dents claim that the general cost of living
has doubled in the last Ave years.
The Chinese government, to pay its war
Indemnity, has levied a tax of 5 American
cents a year on each rafter of every houee
in the country. Foreigners already pay
about 5 per cent, ad valorem on practically
everything imported. The vlcroy in Canton
is already having great difficulty in collect
ing the taxes and white people living there
say this tax on the natives is arousing a
great deal of animosity toward the foreign
ers. "The growth of our agricultural, as well
as other exports to China," Mr. Fairchlld
predicts, "will be a phenomenal ono and in
clude many classes of canned and dried
goods from our orchards, and preserved
meats and dairy products from our furms

FlTe-Year-Old Child Make Hon Are?
of a. Ilaby Ilrother.
SAN JOSE, Cal., Feb. 4. The five-year-old
son of August Nelson, of Evergreen,
with a desire to play with fire, made a
bonfire of his fourteen-months-old baby
brother on Sunday afternoon. The vic
tim was only discovered by the mother
when he was In flames. The child lived
only four hours. Its burning clothes set
nre to the room, and the mother had hard
work to sava the house from destruction.
The boy has always had a mania for set
ting things on fire, but has never before
done any harm, and acknowledged setting
his brother on fire just to see him burn.

W. J. Hartman, the Morion's road fore
man of locomotives, is In this city conduct
ing examinations of firemen for promotion
to enfrinet-rs, and speaks very highly of the
percentages of the men, which is accounted
tor by the fact that President McDoel has
placed on the line an Instruction iar where
two lectures per day are given on the sub
jects of air brakes, signal, steam heat and
fuel combustion. These lectures are free
to the men. At the Lafayette shops work
men are putting together the first two of
the last order of four consolidated Brooks
locomotives. These engines have eight
coupled 57-inch driving wheels, with 21126
Inch cylinders and 11-inch piston valves.
These machines have some very novel fea
ture?, tho valve motion being of the "direct"
motion type and ordinary shifting link de
sign, giving a uniform distribution of steam
in the cylinders. The air track sanders are
of the "triple" design, and so arranged that
sand may be dropped on the rail in four
distinct places while running ahead and
two places when running backward, which
insures some sand to catch between the
rails and driving wheels on sharp curves.
The track sanders, bell ringer and brakes
are operated by compressed air and sup
plied by a special sized 11-lnch air pump
and three main reservoirs of 73,000 cubic
inches volume, which Is said to be the
largest air equipment on locomotives In the
world, and capable of successfully operat
ing more than 100 air brake cars. The
engine brakes are especially equipped with
Monon standard retaining valve and In
stant release cock, which Is useful when
handling long trains on grades and at sta
tion stops for preventing damage to con
tents of cars, and also in preventing cars
being torn apart when from any reason all
brakes may not release uniformly. The
Monon is already operating its freight
trains on the second division with this class
of locomotives, the new ones taking the
places of smaller ones, which are being
dropped back into lighter service or sold.
This company Is also receiving this month
from the Brooks works three new heavy
six-coupled flriving-wheel locomotives to
carry 200 pounds boiler pressure per square
inch. Business on the Monon continues

earned 27 per cent, on Its present stock,
and 12V pr cent, on its Increased capitali
zation. " The Lake Shore holds a majority
of the stock. On a par of JöO it is selling
at $3jo per share.
Since the Lake Shore took control of the
Lake Erie & Western its Fort Wayne and
Cincinnati division has come rapidly to the
front. The putting on of through trains be
tween Cincinnati and Fort Wayne and In
dianapolis and Fort Wayne in connection
with the Big Four has increased its pas
senger business handsomely, and its freight
traffic has so increased that an additional
through freight has been put on to run
The Trunk Line Association has, it Is
paid, virtually decided on the establishment
of an interchangeable mileage bureau, to
have, charge of the preparation and ac
counting of 2.0u0-mile tickets interchange
able on any road in the association. Final
arrangements, however, have not been
concluded. This action is in response to a
petition of more than 20.000 merchants in
trunk line territory, submitted to the asso
ciation through the New York Board of
Trade and Transportation. The board has
been actively engaged on this movement
for some time past, and although final de
tails have not been arranged the outlook
seems favorable for the interchangeable
No more through cars will be operated
between Chicago and Kansas City and the
City of Mexico by the Santa Fe road. The
principal cause 'for the abandonment of
the through sleeping car service to the
Mexican capital was the length of the run.
The cars could not be kept clean. The re
cent laws passed by the Mexican govern
ment requiring all supplies for the cars to
be purchased in that country and also re
quiring trainmen to be able to fpeak the
Spanish language were also factors. The
service that is to be abandoned ia the long
est through car line in the world, the one
way distance being nearly 3.0" miles from
Chicago, and 2.5oo from Kansas City. It
was established about a year ago.
The advance In ocean rates is a serious
blow to the Ceneral Traffic Association
lines, unless the export routes via the
gulf advance their rates, as the gulf lines
will get the cream of the business from
the territory where the Central Traffic As
sociation lines secure their business. The
advance is said to be the result of a large
accumulation of grain at the Atlantic sea
board, which the steamship lines know
must be shipped abroad. The agreement
of the various transatlantic lines plying
between this country, which went Into ef
fect Monday, making a uniform rate on
grain and provisions, which is practically a
pooling arrangement, it is feared will lead
to a demoralization of ocean rates and to
eventually affect the rail-line rates.
The deal by which the Monon will get
Into Indianapolis from the southwest is
practically closed. The company will use
the tracks of the Indianapolis &. Vincennes
to gain entrance to Indianapolis. Owners
of the Mcnon now own several hundred
acres of the best coal lands in southwest
ern Indiana and have options on 300 acres
additional. The company has located its
line from the coal fields and secured moit
of the right of way from its mines to a
connection with the Indianapolis & Vin
cennes. The company expects to begin
work in the early spring and will bring
coal into Indianapolis and northern Indiana
the coming fall. An official of the road
says the talk of building the line in oppo
sition to the Indianapolis Southern is ab
surd. President McDoel, of the Monon,
planned the purchase of the coal fields,
and it has been his purpose since to get a
line into Indianapolis, and this was before
the Indianapolis Southern had been

Effort to Secnre International Action
CINCINNATI, Feb. 4.-The International
Police Journal, the organ of the National
Association of Chiefs of Police of the
United States and Canada, will, in Its next
number, issue an official call for an annual

message have been forwarded by the De
partment of State for delivery by United
States consuls to the chiefs of police in
the leading cities of the world, inviting
them to the Louisville convention, which Is
expected to take decisive action against
anarchy, and for this reason representa
tives of the police departments from all
parts of the world are expected to par
ticipate. The International Police Journal
also publishes the call for an international
convention of Bertillon operators of the
world at the same time and place. This
will include the operators in prisons as
well as in police service. The movement
for foreign . police officials to meet with
the American officers was started last fall,
some time after the assassination of Mc
Kinley. ALLEGED DEAL FOR OFFICE.
Governor Odell Investigating Charges
Afcnlnat n. Sheriff.
ALBANY, N. Y., Feb. 4. Governor Odell
began a hearing to-day of the charges
upon which the removal from office of
Sheriff Guden. of Kings county, is asked.
The allegation is that Guden entered into
a bargain with Michael J. Dady, a leader
in the Republican organization In Brooklyn
and a member of the Board of Election
Commissioners of the city of New York,
to the effect that if nominated for sheriff
and elected he would appoint aa his sub
ordinates only such persons as Dady
! should name and that all profits of th of-
II. in excess or per annum snouia
be pail to Dady. The allegations w. re
first given publicity In n speech made last
month by Bert Relss. who was the Repub
lican nominee for Congress in the Sixth
district at the election in ir0 and who at
tributed his defeat to th alleged hostility
LOCAL PRODUCE MARKET
31 ANY LINES OF TRADE CHECKED DV
THE COLD 1VEATIIEIU
Shipments Retarded on Commission
Row Higher Prices for Hatter and
Eggs Grain Markets Weak.
As would be expected, the cold weather Is
checking trade more or less in several lines,
but the produce men are nevertheless doing
a good business, and prices are very strong
in tone. Hens and chickens are bought for
shippers at 8 cents a pound, the highest fig
ure in several months; and the demand is in
excess of the supply. Choice butter, as
well. Is In active request at the best quo
tations, and retail grocers are paying 15
to 20 cents for choice stock. Eggs, with
present weather conditions, are in firm
tone, shippers paying 21 cents. On the
choicest stock even better prices are paid.
The supply of storage eggs Is said to be
about exhausted. The wholesale grocers
are having a good trade for winter, and
prices on all lines of goods are steady and
firm, sugars being in stronger position,
apparently, than at any time for some
months. Canned goods and evaporated
fruits are moving quite freely. Trices rule
steady on all lines of dried fruits. Efforts
to advance canned goods have failed to
materialize, although tomatoes and corn
are held with considerable firmness. Cereal
Ine products from corn and oats are fast
movers at present. The high price at
which Irish potatoes sell stimulate the de
mand for substitutes, and cerealine prod
vets are sought on this account. On Com
mission row it was rather quiet, the
weather being too cold to ship fruits and
vegetables except in warmed cars, and lit
tle was done. It Is a quiet time with the
ury goous houses and dealers In fancy no
tions. Confectioners are doing a very fair
business, really better than they had an
ticipated. Other lines are without new

REBUFF FOR TOM JOHNSON.
KfTortsj in Impose Hltcher Taxen on
lliiilwnyM .ot Sanctioned.
COLUMBUS. O., Feb. 4. The Supreme
Jourt to-day put an end to Tom L. John
ion's effort to secure a higher appraise
ment of the railway property of Ohio. The
ourt handed down a decision, sustaining
the demurrer of the attorney general to his
petition and dismissing the same. Johnson
began his fight l-efore the State Board of
Equalization of railway property last fall.
His contention was that this board was
really a board of apiiraisoment as well as
equalization. The board refused to increase
the total appraisement, taking the posi
tion that they had power simply to equal
ize valuations among the different compa
nies. They refused to make the increase
and Johnson went into the Supreme Court,
whose decision, now given, teems to be
Judge Ilnrke Must Pay Taxes.
COLUMBUS. O.. Feb. 4.Judge Stevenson
Burke, of Cleveland, lost his tax case In
the Supreme Court by a decision handed
down to-day. The treasurer of Cuyahoga
county sued him for unp.ttd taxes amount
ing to over iV)M"). claiming that he had
failed to li?t a lot of copper stocks. Judge
Burke admitted that he had held them
but paid they were of a Canadian company
and. therefore, not taxable In Ohio. The
lower courts held for Judge Burke, but the
Supreme Court to-day reversed the Judg
ment and remanded it for further proceed
ings. Xo Limit to Fireproof Skyscrapers.
CHICAGO. Feb. 4 The City Council by a
vote of T'6 to 9 decided last night to remove

ings. This action reverses that taken two
