Gen.MacArthur dur ing the few days he has sat in the gov ernor general's chair has already dem onstrated that he believes in letting the -hiefs of bureaus do th-.-ir share of work. Jle has handed over to the staff officer3 of the department many matters which have formerly l:een considrt-d in the ! governor general's office, giving them discretion in the settlement of details i ftr.d only holding them responsible for j l -suits. "me of his first official acts was j to place the issuance of passes, such as I t-rmits to tro through the lint--? or to be n the streets of Manila after 10 o'clock, j in the hands of the provost marshal. lurins the past ten mouths Gen. Otis' j aid--, Lieut. Stanley, had signed 43.0o0 of these permits and a large proportion of th- applic ations had been personally considered by c;..n. Otis. Another urd-. r which met with gen eral approval was the appointment of Lieutenant Colonel K. II. Crowder to be P"cretary to the military governor, with j-owers which make the office one of im portance se.-ond only to that of the gov ernor in civil affairs. Amongthe branch es of the I ublic business which will come under Col. Crowder's supervision is the Judiciary, customs, revenue, pos tal and telegraph, treasury, auditors, municipal governments, schools, public works, claims, prisons, patents. Col. Crowder was more closely associated with lien. tis in the civil branch of the last administration than any other of ficer and Gen. Otis gave great weight to his opinions. Before the organization of the supreme court and the system of Filipino judiciary. Col. Crowder was Judge advocate of the corps. As a jus tice of the supreme court he has done much to instil the spirit of theAmerican Judiciary into that body which was not lacking in learning but might have fail ed in other important respects but for such inspirations. At the same time he t.as served on the board of claims, was a member of the committee which de vised the present system of municipal governments and helped to arrange the recent revision of Spanish criminal pro'.

JOSEPH, MO, MOBBED THE UNDERTAKER He Shipped in Coffins When Nobody Had Died. San Francisco. June 12. The board of health has decided to raise the quarantine of Chinatown twenty days from the veri- ncaaon ot tne last case or plague which was on June 2. If another ca?e is found, however, the quarantine will not be lifted until twenty days from the date of such discovery. Wing Tie, a Chinese undertaker, doing business on Sacramento sijeet. under the Chinatown morfrue. had three coffins shipped in through the line and in so do ing incurred the displeasure of several hundred of his Chinese brethren. They demanded to know what use he had for coffins, when no one nad died and not being able to explain to their satisfaction, he was mobbed. The frrit of his shop was battered in with stones and clubs and he was chc-sed to hiding. It then re quired the efforts of a strong force of police to clcb the riotous Chinese into sub mission. 'There are about 14.000 people in China town," said one of the six companies or' Tieers last nitiht. "Of "liiis number, at least 4,."o are penniless and without food, except what is supplied by the merchants and trie six companies. Many of the Chinese merchants at a meeting held during the week, decided to pay no bills or rent during the blockade. CLEAll OF ICE. Behxiisg Sea Opened Ten Weeks Earlier Than Usual. Seattle, Wash., June 12. A special to the Post-Intelligencer from South Bend, Wash., says: The steamer Rival came in this morn ing from Bristol Bay on Bering Sea. with in two days run of Cap? Nome. Captain Johnson had no Nome news except that Behring sea was clear of ice already, the season being ten weeks earlier than usual. He doerf not think any of the steamers now on the way to Nome will be delayed by ice. He- reports the discovery of gold in" paying quantities on the head waters of the Nusesrak river, a tributary of BrLspd Bay. He was told of the dis covery by a missionary there, but the news was suppressed by the Alaska Pack ers' association which has eight canneries on the bay. and thousands of men en papal for the canning season, who would stampede for the diKt:ins;s if the discovery was made known. While there the Rival towed in twelve vessels with men and supplies for the canner..es. INCREASE IX EXPORTS. Those For May Exceeded Same Month. Last Year by $7,5 00,000. Washington, June 12.

State Controller Morgan has purchased twenty-four acres of land at Caldwell on Lake George. The last legislature made an appropriation to secure the land tor a public parK to com memorate the battle cf Lake George. The land purchased is at what is known as "Hlooilv Pond." and was the scene of des perate fighting during the Revolutionary war.

Oc RAILRQADJEWS. ew Fast Freight Service on the Santa Fe. Through Trains Dailj Between Chicago and the Coast. CUTS TIME 4S HOURS. Great Reduction Made in the Old Schedule. Santa Fe Will Get a Large Share of Oriental Traffic. As a. result of the opening of the San Joaquin Valley line into San Francisco, the Santa Fe has established a through fast freight service between. Chicago and the Pacific coast. The service is daily, and reduces the old freight schedule between the two points 43 hours. Since the Santa Fe management se cured control of a steamship line out of San Diego, the road has been an im portant factor in Oriental traffic. With a line of its own into San Francisco, this importance is greatly advanced, and the fast freight service now established will probably result in giving the Santa Fe a principal portion of the through traffic between the United States and the Orient. Trade between the fnited States and the Orient is steadily increasing, and it is likely that the Santa Fe will soon have a line of steamers in and out of San Francisco as well as San- Diego. FATE PURSUES HIM. Ira Henry Returns to "Work Only to Be Aga.n Disabled. Ira Heniy. of the machine shop of the Santa Fe, met with a serious acci dent Monday.

He was taken to the company hos pital where the wounds were dressed. DELEGATES' SPECIAL. Nebraska Democrats Will Go Through: Topeka on "Way to Kansas City.

Stillwell of the Rock Island has returned from Oklaho ma where he has been looking over the new lines buiit by the Rock Island. The new line from Kingfisher to Guthrie is not yet completed east of Cashion. The Rock Island is running trains over its section already. The business is good. Much building is going on in the new towns along the road and it neces sarily keeps the trains busy. The grading for the road east from Cashion to Guthrie has been completed and the rails will soon be laid. Mr. Stillwell was accompanied on the trip by Superintendent of Bridges and Building W. R. Cannon and Division Superintendent S. B. Hovey. MECHANICS NEEDED. Santa Fe Employes Transferred From Topeka to Albuquerque. The services of mechanics are much needed by the Santa Fe in Albuquer que. To supply this shortage a number of men have been sent to Albuquerque from Topeka. Those already sent have been taken from the shops. Xot many more can be spared from Topeka, and it is not known whether enough men may be secured here to fill all the places. UNITED STATES LEADS. Is Ahead of All Countries in Railroad Development The Prussian minister of public works has issued his yearly table of statistics of the railroads of the world. The docu ment shows that the United States has maintained its place at the head of the van so far as railway development is concerned. The total mileage of tracks in the United States at the close of 189 is given as 186.245, which does not quite agree with the figures of the interstate commerce commission. The latter body reported that in June, ls9S, the aggre gate was 185.S96.32. Several interesting facts are to be gathered from the table. It is seen, for example, that the United States has 39.92 per cent of all the railroad miieage of the world, which is 186,245 out. of a total of 466.5"9 miles. This country also has 1S.735 miles more than all Europe, 7.521 more than all Europe and Africa and 4.245 more than all Europe and Aus tralia. Population considered, the United States has more railroad than any other of the large nations, as it possesses one mile of road to every 378 people. In Germany the number cf inhabitants to the mile of road is 1.6f.5, in European Russia and Finland 4.032. in Belgium 1, 731. British North America leads rela tively to its population, as it has one mile of line for every 311 of its inhab itants. Railroad building in Asia has been phenomenal in the four years covered by the report, as the per cent of in- WE GUARANTEE To launder without fading the Brightest Colors and Most Delicate Tints.

In Japan, Asia Minor and Asiatic Siberia there has been great activity in railroad construction. An interesting fact is that British India now fcas about 440 miles of railroad more than Great Britain and Ireland, while at the close of 1S97 the position was reversed in favor of Great Britain and Ireland by nearly 400 miles. In British India there are 13,138 inhabitants for every mile of road. NEW MOUNTAIN CLIMBER. It Consists of Two Complete Loco motives Working as One. Two complete locomotives coupled to gether is the new type of railway en gine for steep grades just finished and shipped by the Baldwin locomotive works to the St. Cloud River railway, a part of the Southern Pacific system in California. It is a mountain-climbing motor, which will pull 125 tons of freight, aside from the heavy cars, up a 7 per cent grade, which is a rise of 369 feet to the mile, to say nothing of lifting its own enormous weight of 161.400 pound3. Bars connect the two engines and render them practically one. One engi neer by a single operation of the throt tle lever manipulates the dual monster. One fireman feeds both furnaces. The machine is a wood burner. At the right side of each boiler is the receptacle for wood, and on the left of each the water tanks. Thus equilibrium is maintained. Each engine has six 40-inch driving wheels, but no flexible trucks, such as have given umch trouble to engineers. Each has four cylinders, two high and two low pressure, using the Vauclain compound system. The St. Cloud River engine is a new conception, and was thoroughly and successfully tested on the Reading road before shipment. WAITING FOB THE BOERS. Union Pacific Holding Land For Them in Wyoming. Cheyenne, Wyo., June 12. It is re ported here on good authority that the reason for the Cnion Pacific land de partment refusing to lease the million acre tract of grazing lands in Carbon county to sheepmen after an agree ment had been entered into is because the company wishes to save the land and sell outright to the Boer emigrants who are expected to come to the United States by the thousand and settie in the west. The Union Pacific owns millions of acres of Valuable lands, which, with irrigating systems, could be made to blossom as the rose and return wealth to the settlers and railroad company as well. It is further stated that no more railroad lar.d will be leased until the result of the efforts now being made to get colonies of Boers to come west is known. WANTED A GUARANTEE. Republican Delegate is Suspicious of Tickets to National Convention. The telephone in the city ticket ofice of the Rock Island rang this morning. A de'egate to the Republican rational convention in Philadelphia was at th-2 other end of the line. It seems that a dcubr had entered his mind as to ihe validitv of tickets sold to this conven- "When does the time limit expire on tho tickets to the national Republican convention?" came the query over" the wi: e. "On June 58." answered the agent. ' Sure?" asked the voice, 'fc-'ure.'' "Then if that is the case you will give rue a written guarantee that my ticket will be good until that date, wo i ! von ' The agent assured him that he could have as many guarantees as aesirea. This apparently satisfied him. A. M. Quarrier Dead. New Tork. June 12. A. M.

Rio de Janeiro. May 19. According to a report presented to their government by tne merman consuls in bouin Atrica, tne eastern coast alone has from one to one ami a half billion of marks employed in railroads. Six hundred millions of Ger man capital is employed in Brazilian en terprises, two hundred millions in Vene zuelan, one hundred millions in Colom bian, one hundred and twenty millions in Peruvian, two hundred and seventy mil lions in Chilian, six hundred millions in Argentine and one hundred millions in Uruguayan. In Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Rio Grande de Sul there are over three hun dred German firms, with a capital of 300 million of milreis. Out of 17.0"0 foreigners In Paraguay, 12.5l4j are Germans. The government of Bolivia has contract ed with German officers to serve as mili tary instructors to the army and national guard. The Handeis Zeitung of Buenos Ayres, Argentine Republic says: "Ve are not astonished that the repre sentatives of American commerce try in every way to sell their wares, so much so that last year the United States figured in the second place. But what riles the Argentiner is that In that case we can not count on reciprocal friendship, for while the Americans extend their trade in so wonderful a manner among us. they empioy every endeavor not to concede the very small favors we solicit from them for our- prime materials such as wool, putting off indefinitely the acceptance of the commercial agreement agreed on.
