Continues to Build New Linos in Southwest. Important plans of construction have been adopted by the Missouri, Kansas & Texas road to maintain its hold upon the region west of the main line in In dian Territory, which has been invaded by the three roads mentioned. In Oklahoma Territory, which is one of the most fertile regions in the south west, the Missouri. Kansas & Oklahoma, a subcompany of Missouri, Kansas & Texas, has for some time been eon sttuolint; a line from the terminus of the Coffeyville branch to Oklahoma City. This will enable the mercha.nts of St. Ii mis and Kansas City to deliver their eoo'ls to that rapidly growing sec- tion by the shortest and most direct i route, besides furnishinpr better access 1 tii markets for the pioducts of the ! farm. j The line will also furnish the best and 1 shiniest route to Chicago and points li . yond. There w ill be a branch from a point on this line to Wybark on the : Missouri, Kansas & Texas to tap the j region between the two lines. The too'.l j mileage is about 275 miles, and a fur . ther extension from Oklahoma City : southeast to a junction with the Coal- nate branch, especially with a view to I opening up markets for coal, has also t been projected. So far Missouri, Kansas & Texas ! shows no disposition to let up on work : of this i haracter. although some of its ' niit;hlioi s have announced their inlea j tion of lessening their amount of better ; ment work on account of the condition I of the labor market. Kansas and Texas 1 people say they have had no particular j tumble w ith labor, and intimate that , there is no reason for a change of pol : icy on that score. RESTRAIN HAREIMAN.

Washington, June 22. Captain J. J. Pershing, who was in command of the troops at the fight at Lake Lanao, in the Philippines, has written a letter to a personal friend in the war department ment describing the battle. It has been shown to Secretary Root, who authoriz ed its publication. Captain Pershing says: "Camp Vicars, April 27, 1903. "I suppose your mail dispatches have, or will have, brought you a full account of the Bacolod incident, in reality the best fight of the Moro campaigns; not so many Moros killed as at Mayan and Pandapatnn, one year ago, but fought according to some sort of system. Of course, I have worked on this tight, as 1 foresaw long ago that it must come, and the whole thing from the beginning worked nut as planned. First we got behind them, much to their surprise, and could post our gurs above and drop projectiles down into their fort, so that artillery fire in this case was not all noise. We had some work and some fighting to gain this position. Once there, it was only a question of sitting down deliberately and waiting to see what the Moros would do. Many got away before the fila.ee was invested thoroughly. "The fight began in a flood of a rain storm that lasted till dark and recon noitering was difficult. So we did not liud all the avenues of escape until next day, and I am glad now we did not. as they had such confidence in this fort, that they have been constructing for a year, that they took many wo men and c hildren inside, and these escaped during the night. They next day and night we held them fast, how ever. Tried to get them to surrender; had two talks under a flag of truce. No: they would right it out. So theie was th'-n only to finish it. "I called my officers together and gave each one his work. The main obstacle was a ditch Si feet wide and 40 feet deep to be crossed. It was to be bridged with fallen, trees and over all a bamboo bridge was laid. Everything was in readiness and the assault began. In the face of a heavy Remington fire from the fort the lines advanced against ' ni faces of the fort, putting out of busi ness every Moro that appeared. They could not use their port holes, as we had liattered them to pieces, although we could not with our light field artil lerv damage the earthwork. "The lines tip to within 50 yards, the bridge was completed by two companies detailed for that purpose, the trees hav ing been previously cut and hauled as near as could safely be done. Thirty minutes biter the assaulting infantry swung across and formed line on the lierme and clambered up nearly in line to the top of the parapet. Here they were met with kampilan and kris, and a bloody hand-to-hand fight occurred one soldier against two Moros here, an other running his bayonet into a fanat ic there. Moros plunging headlong into the deep ditch in their impetuosity and impetus. It was as a whole a seen" never to forget. Too much cannot be said of the valor, the bravery, the cour age and coolness and nerve of the American soldier. The majority of those left insiiie never reached the top of the parapet. It was a relief to me that none of our men were killed. Two will lose an arm each, the rest will re cover with honorable scars, but not maimed. It was the proudest day of my life. "Choleia existed in all that section and we did not examine the inteiior of the fort until after it was burned and wet thoroughly through, for there were all sorts of underground galleries and p.assagewavs. Some officers in the as saulting line counted 60 dead on one floor and the Moros say there wen? more than 100 killed inside, while the list outside has been growing ever since the battle, so that 150 all told is a con servative estimate. "I have labored with these Bacolod Moros for a year, through other Moros, some of them near relatives, trying to convince them of their foolishness in thinking of fighting us, but they have rej.lied in insulting messages, and in fact, the whole Laguna de Iano has anticipated a reverse t'of us. The les son, of course, has been a severe one for' them. The old Panandungan (a sort of Moro title, meaning chief coun selor or something of that kind in thin ens' he had more power than the sul tan! lost his life, and the rest of them that are lift have sent word that they want to be friends. We burned nothing but this main ootta and a few smaller ones from which we were fired upon and I think the 'Moros all saw that our purpose is to be humane as far as they will nermit us. "To my mind this practically settles the Lake Lanao troubles. We, of course, must explore the eastern portion of the lake for a distance that remains yet unexplored of about ten miles. I antici pate little trouble there, but there may be one or two haul headed old dattos who will put up their red flags. The matter may now be said to be settled. There will never again be any continued opposition, nor any general opposition. The sensible ones see that it is useless and several of their old panditas (priestsi are now preaching the univer sal brotherhood of man. "It is needless for me to say to you that I am gratified at the outcome. From P.acolod north to Marahui there were more Fnited States flags displayed in the road ar.1 in rancherios than I supposed existed in all this country. I have been here nearly two years, right in and about the Moro country, in the islands nearly four, and can but feel that I have accomplished something. I think it the largest single success that has been made in the islands. One year ago nobody knew nor had seen except myself the Moro in his native laguna nor had they any idea of him nor of his fierce, unconquerable nature. Today we have crossed the lake and have prac tically marched around it. Without the support and backing of General Davis and General Sumner I could not have done this. To them, of course, as com manders belongs the credit. I hope it will not fail of appreciation and that thev will be rewarded accordingly."

The visitor will expect something unusual in landscape effects at the World's fair, and he shall not be disappointed. From one glori ous prospect he may pass to another. From one superb vista he may turn to revel in the exquisite beauty of others no less pretentious. In designing the landscape features of this great expo sition, the architect In charge, Mr. Geo. E. Kessler, has had ever in mmd the central idea that this is a city of gigan tic palaces, rather than a group or buildings set in a park. The treatment is therefore generally of a formal char acter and the embellishment is along the borders of the thirty-five miles ot roadways within the two square miles of exposition area. The most elaborate of the formal gardening will be upon the slope of what is poppularly known as the Cas cade garuenn. These gardens are in the southern part of the central picture south of thd grand basin which lies be tween the FJducation and Klectricity buildings, and will represent an expen diture of one million dollars. The fea ture is half a mile in length, extending in a long southern sweep around the end of the basin and the communicating lagoons. The slope is 300 feet wide, with a rise of sixty feet. The crowning fea ture is an elaborate architectural work of noble proportions, and most exquisite and perfect detail. The combined genius of architect and artist is strongly in evidence in the magnificent master piece, which consists of several parts. The central part is a festival hall, of circular form, 200 feet in diameter, ana carrying the largest dome ever con structed, which lowers 2oo feet above the foundations of the building. Colon nades, fifty-two feet high, extend east and west from the festival hall, and ter minate in two restaurant pavilions, each 130 feet in diameter and 150 feet high. Each of the colonnades is divided into seven circular bays, before each of which will be placed a statue or sculp tured group of heroic size to represent a state or territory. The entire fourteen aivisions of the great Louisiana Pur chase, in commemoration of whose ac quisition the exposition is held, will thus be represented in sculpture. The terrace upon which the statuary will stand is known as the terrace of states, and overlooks almost the -entire sweep of gardens and cascades. The cascades are three in number, the central by far the largest. The water gushes from an artistic hood or fount, 20 feet above the level of the terrace, spreads out into a stream 45 feet wide and 14 inches deep, ami leaps from wier to wier down the long slope, spreading to a width of 150 feet as it takes its final plunge into the grand basin. The other two cascades have their sources in fountains in the center of large bas ins upon the teirace opposite each of the restaurant pavillions. These cas cades have nearly the same form as the larger one, and How toward the central cascade into the grand basin. At night the cascades will be illuminated from beneath the water, the effect being that of a luminous water. With the other elaborate electric illumination the fea ture is destined to be one of striking novelty ami certainly the most elaborate and beautiful spectacle of the kind ever created. Between and beyond the cascades are the great lawns, with their rich em broideries of flowers. Cement walks and flights of easy steps are provided thioughout the vast gardens, and a liberai use of sculpture completes the decorative detail. Seen from any point of view the cascade gardens will hold the rapt attention of the visitor longer than any one feature o the great ex position. These gardens close the main avenue which leads into the exposition from the northeast entrance to the grounds, and every patron of the fair will have many a look at their chang ing beauty. Another garden of especial promi nence will be situated in front of the Fnited States government building, in full view from the main transverse av enue. This garden is also upon a slope so that its many beauties may be seen from the avenue as well as from the building above. The same advantage attaches to sunken gardens, which are , to be features of the main transverse avenue. One of these bright gardens, 75 by 750 feet, will lie between the palace of liberal arts and the mine and metal lurgy building, and another, 75 by 1.300 feel, between the palace of transporta tion and the machinery building. These gardens are to be three feet below the general level and will be framed in great stretches of blue grass. Flowering plants have been chosen that will pre sent solid masses of color and bloom the entire season, such as the phloxes, petunias, geraniums and verbenas. Foli age plants will also be much used. In the landscape work throughout the central picture large trees are a part of the decoration. These are from 12 to IS inches through the trunk, and to sec ure them involved a formidable nn dei taking in transplanting. This work was done so successfully that every tree is flourishing. Long lines of big uee; bonier the main avenues, an.i their bright green and amber shade add essential elements to the general pic ture. The outdoor exhibits of the depart ments of horticulture and agriculture, the exhibits of the United States gov ernment, and the gardens surroundinv the pavilions erected by foreign gov ernments and the various states alt enter into the landscape picture. Some of these features will be very elaborate. France will have a reproduction of th,. gardens at Versailles, surrounding the Grand Trianon, of which the French building is a replica. Appropriate land , senile embellishment will surround the British pavilion, which is a reproduc tion of the orangery of Kensington pa', ace. Fast of the rialace of agriculture are six acres planted to roses, more than 50,000 rose trees being thete on ex hibition. All told, more than forty acres are given up to outdoor exhibits upon grounds around the palaces of ag riculture and horticulture. Among tht features upon the slope north of the ag riculture building: is a floral clock 100 feet in diameter, giving the correct time. The outdoor exhibit of the de partment of agriculture of the United States occludes six acres, and includes a mri of the Fnited States indicated in useful plants characteristic of each state. The map is surrounded by ex hibits of grasses, medicinal and poison ous plants. China. Japan, Germany and other nations will have special land scape features. A large area of wood land is embraced in the exposition grounds, where the visitor may enjoy the coolness, if not the quiet restfulness, of the forest. The state buildings will stand well among the big trees, and their verandas will be much sought by those who wish to rest from the ardu ous work of seeing- the world's assent bled wonders. CLEVELAND A CANDIDATE. Construction Placed Upon His Recent Utterance. Atlanta, Ga., June 22. Clark Howell, Demoeratie national committeeman anil editor of the Constitution, sees in Mr. Cleveland's denial of the Bailey inter view evidence that. the former presi dent is a candidate for a third term, llr. Howell says: "Either he is a receptive candidate for a fourth nomination and confident that he could be chosen a third time to the presidency, or he is not. The interview said ne was not. Mr. Cleveland says You buy biscuit in a paper bag, you cannot be certain that they will be good or clean or fresh. You run a risk. After you get home you find them stale and soggy, and wish you had bought the other kind That's Afterthought. You buy biscuit in the In-er-seal Package knowing that they will be good and clean and fresh. You are certain of this before you buy them there can be no mistake That's Forethought. The ln-er-seal Package guarantees the goodness of 7 n the interview was full of falsehood. Mr. Cleveland has not effaced himself from the candidatorial list and he is indig nant that anyone else should repcirt him as thus self-effaced. "With Mr. Cleveland thus revealed, the problems most perilous to the party remain open and its leaders must withdraw- their attentions from the common enemy and devote their skill to pre venting the wrong of a third term in deavor in Mr. Cleveland's behalf that would bring upon the party greater odium and defeat than any it has suf fered in all its history."
