WASHINGTON NEWS NOTES
Washington. January 5.
MR. COCKRELL FORSAKES THE MARKETS—
Senator Francis Marlon Cockrell no longer does his
own marketing. This announcement may be of
no Interest to the average reader, but it is of
great Interest, if not of nignificance. in Washing
ton. Every morning for more than twenty-five
years during the sessions of Congress Senator
Cockrell has appeared promptly at 3:30 o'clock at
the principal market of the city and selected the
day's supply of meats, vege tables and sea food
for his household. It usually took the Senator
a tout forty minutes to make his selections. He
has never patronized regularly any dealer, and has
always paid spot each for his purchases. After
completing this duty he resumed his streetcar
ride to the Capitol, where he is nearly always the
first among the statesmen to arrive and the last
to depart. Naturally Washington is considerably
concerned over the cause of Senator Cockrell's
sudden abandonment of so ancient a custom. '.
Now* of it originated at the market house, where \
th* huckster and other dealers had been so i
long accustomed to early morning visits from the
Missouri Senator that after missing him for two
days they set afloat an inquiry as to what had
happened to Senator Cockrell. There are two ex
cations Of his conduct. Member* of his family
Fay that he recently has been attacked by sciatica,
and has discovered that the twinges of this all
tr^nt hare destroyed that, fine balance of the
salad which is essential to the statesman who goes
• -marketing. The politicians flout the sciatica
theory. They say that the Cockrell Presidential
boom, which hap been raging through the West
for a month or two. has caused the Senator to
'lew himself In a new if not a more serious, light,
and that he does not believe that dally haggling
with batcher*, fishmongers and vegetable hucksters
over the price and quality of their wares com
forts with the dignity of a Presidential candidate.
PTKGREE AS A PARDONER— The disappear
ance of "Potato" Pingree Into private life, amid
a splutter and crackle of fireworks sent up from
hie oratorical magasine, is a reminder to the Mich-
ItJtS) ©el©ny it) Washington that he has exercised
tno pardoning power more freely, not to say reck
lee*ly. than has any other Governor of the Wolver
¦a st«t«. in point of fact. !t i* believed that
Plngree liberated more prisoners during his two
terms of four year* as Governor of Michigan than
were ewr liberated by Ike rhief E»eeutlve of any
ether State in the I'nion. Pingree has opened the
*~ort^ to about four hundred and fifty inmates of
'h* Michigan penitentiaries. About one hundred
a i"". f^rty of th* meti h*- released from durance vUe
wro pardoned outright and restored to the full
privileges of citizenship. The others were paroled
on good behavior, and so long ac they commit no
offence their liberty "annnt be interfered with.
Pingree Justifies his unusual use of the pardoning
power by the hold ar.d startling declaration that
the courts of Michigan are corrupt, and that the
men he liberated were unjustly and Illegally con
victed.

fifes reason I. that Mr. McDowell, who was ones a

forbad" the writing of a history of the clan. He did
this when be made his first race for Congress In
Pennsylvania. An admiring constituent, who knew
all about the McDowells from the coming of the
flrM of the- name from 8-otland to Venango County
In the Keystone State, thought to advance the can
didacy of the rising young statesman by recording
In a handsomely bound volume the deeds and fame
efthe McDowells from the flr»t of the lineup to the
rr ,f.+,< ba«i conspicuous representative of the
family. "Mo. you snail not write a book about tno

A CCRIOUS ANNUITY OFFERED.— If the State
of lowa had accepted the proposition made by
James B. Edmonds twelve years ago, the Hawkeye
treasury would have been richer to-day by some
128,000. Mr. Edmonds died In Washington last
week. He was a citizen of lowa, and when he
made his novel proposition had accumulated a
fortune sufficiently large to make him feel that he
could retire from business and live in ease for
the remainder of his life in the National Capital.
Through the Legislature at Dcs Molnes he offered
to turn over to the State $100,000 in caeh or gilt
edged securities, in return for which tlu* Stale
of lowa was to pay him in monthly instalments
every year for the rest of his life the sum of $6,000.
His proposition was a factor In lowa politics for
Ff-veral years, and finally was rejected. It is easily
demonstrated that even if lowa had put the $100,«*»
to no use. but merely had kept it in the treasury
vaults, the State still would have made a clear
profit of $28,000 on the transaction.
AN EMBARRASSED EXBCUTTVE-Oovsrnor
Stanley of Kansas, who has been re-elected, has
weighing upon his mind all the time a responsi
bility more annoying if not terrible than Is at
tached to the Governorship of any other State.
The Penal Code of Kansas a few years ago was
amended by the Populists placing on the Governor
entire responsibility for the execution of criminals
condemned to death by the courts. Th. amended
law directs that when the death sentence Is passed
on a murderer he shall be Immediately conveyed
to the penitentiary and there await the fixing of
the date of his execution by the Governor. Some
thing more than forty men condemned to death are
now In the Kansas Penitentiary, but neither Gov
ernor Stanley nor his predecessor, who was a Pop
ulist, has ordered the execution of any of them.
The strangest feature of this remarkable situa
tion Is that two or three of the condemned
wretches have petitioned Governor Stanley to have
themselves hanged. It Is explained that the Gov
ernor might possibly comply with their requests
If It were not for the (act that if he should <io
so a mighty howl would immediately arise In the
Sunflower Bute against this sort of discrimina
tion by tbe Governor in the discharge of his offi
cial duties.
POOR LIMBER BEA>>>\ loR UMXI..
DURING THE SUMMER OF" WOO SLACK MARKETS
TEMPORARILY KILLED THE TRADE.
Bangor. Me, Jan. 6 (Special).— The report of the
Surveyor-General shows that in the year ending
December SI, 1900. there were surveyed at the port
of Bangor 142.699.24S feet of lumber of all kinds. in
cluding 102.465.980 feet of spruce. This shows a de
crease from 1899 of nearly 39.000.000 feet, the loss in
spruce alone having been about 31.000,000 feet.
Except in the last few weeks the season of 1900
was most unsatisfactory for the lumbermen of the
Penobscot-that is, the manufacturers. All the
season, up to October, the market was slow and
prices low. while freight rates were much lower
than in 1899. especially to Boston. In the spring
and summer of 1900 some of the mills were shut
down part of the time, and one, that of Hodgkina
& Hall, was not started at all. Orders were few
and far between. and there was HUM for vessels
to do.
In October came something of a revival, and be
fore the river closed spruce was In quick demand at
good prices, although the remarkable rates of the
fall of \m were not at any time reached. In the
last few weeks of the season it was impossible to
get enough vessels of suitable. size to carry lumber,
and freights advanced accordingly.
When the river closed considerable lumber re
mained here on the wharves, and about 1.000,000
feet was rafted down to Bucksport for shipment
thence to New-York. sOO.OOO feet of this belonging to
tho Ashland Manufacturing Company.
The difference between the business of th« two
years UM and 1000. may be seen from the fact that
In UM about nu.ouo.ooo feet of spruce was shipped
from Bang or. while in 1900 the total survey was
only about 142.000.000 feet of all kinds.
The extent of operations In th. woods this winter
cannot be estimated at this time with much accu
racy, an it will depend largely upon the weather.
It is thought, however, that under favorable con
ditions from this time out a00.0M.000 feet may be
cut of which amount nearly one-half will be pulp
logs. The New-York lumber market Is now in
fairly pood eoudttlnn, and with ih< general im
provement in business and renewed activity in t1...
building trades the prosit seems to bo ,-5 for a
FBtlsfactory demand and fair prices for Maine

academic departments. During the year ended
July 31, 1000, twenty-four academic depart
ments were admitted and six academies were
chartered. The twenty-four new academic de
partments organized during the year open new
opportunities for free academic Instruction to
the young people of twenty-four communities
not previously so favored. The State is now bo
thoroughly covered by secondary schools that
out of 421 Incorporated villages reported In the
Legislative manual for 1900, there are only
, nine having a population of over one thousand.
) and only twelve having a population between
five hundred and one thousand, that do not have
academic departments under the Regents. For
the first time in the history of the State every
county in the State is this year represented on
the University roll. Hamilton County, for many
years the only one not no represented, having
an academic department at Long Lake.
The number of secondary schools in the Uni
versity has increased 110 per cent in* the last
ten years. There were employed during the last
year in secondary schools 1,309 men and 2,510
women. There were 34,105 boys and 45,260
girls instructed in secondary Institutions, a total
of 79,365 students, which wa? an Increase of
O.SS9. or 13.7 per cent over the (.-receding year.
The total net property of secondary schools is
$28,412,181 38. and the total expenditures by the
schools during the year was $6,036,374 41. Every
Institution In the University was Inspected at
least one. in the year" by some officer of the
University, the whole number of such visits of
Inspection being 1,311. The total amount appor
tioned by the State to secondary schools was
$212,667 28. and 672 schools took examinations.
There wer. 511,020 examination papers written,
and of these paper* 374,302 were claimed by the
schools, 345,117 being accepted, and 29,275 being
rejected. Of all the papers 68 per cent of those
written were accepted and 24 per cent of all
the accepted papers were honor papers (90 per
cent, or more).
The annual report of the public libraries divi
sion of the University for 1800 contains returns
from 1,035 libraries. Of these -4«0, free for lend
ing to the public, and containing 2,187.125 vol
umes, circulated last year 8.452.445 volumes.
The fres libraries lent to the people an aver
age of 23.157 books dally, 1.163 for each 1.000 of
the population, and 387 for each 100 books in
the llbra»y.
Grants of money amounting to $26,891 43 were
made to 178 libraries and branches, on condition
of equal amounts being locally raised and all
spent for approved books.
The statistics of the travelling libraries and
pictures of the State Library do not vary ma
terially from month to month, as the demand
remains about the same. In December 59 libra
ries were sent to 44 different borrowers, and 14
wall pictures. 1,254 slides. 2 lanterns and 573

Veronica Schutte. th« baby daughter of Charles
Schutte. was not brought into the Supreme Court
yesterday, In compliance with th* writ of habeas
corpus issued by Justice Leventrltt several days
ago. Mrs. Antoinette Una* against whom the
writ was directed, told Justice Leventrltt that the
little one was suffering- from a heavy cold anil was
too 111 to be taken out of th. house.
In his answer to hit wife's petition Mr Schutte
charges that his wife is not a proper person to
have the custody of the little one. The excejslva
use of Intoxicants, Mr. Schutte alleges, caused his
wife's downfall. In an affidavit. Mr. Schutte says
that he was Informed by a maid in the employ
of his wife that Mrs. Schutte's conduct <«•*-. not
above reproach. At the> close of the argument
Justice Leventritt said:
Under ordinary circumstances the mother i- the
proper custodian of a baby of this tender age.
The charges here and the recriminations are such
that it is impossible for mo to decide definitely
what to do. I shall direct that, pending the ll tig:.

MR. M'KELWAY DECIDES.
WILL NOT SERVE AS PERMANENT RE
CEIVER OP ANGLO-AMERICAN LOAN
AND SAVINGS ASSOCIATION.
A decision was handed down yesterday afternoon
by Justice Maddox. in the Supremo Court. Special
Term. Brooklyn, dissolving th. Anglo- American
Savings and Loan Association In tho suit brought
by the Attorney-General of tho State of New-
York against the corporation for Its dissolution
on the ground that It Is Insolvent.
Some time ago two temporary receivers were ap
pointed—Joseph N. Dickey and Edward B. Dickin
son. Yesterday afternoon Justice Maddox ap
pointed St. Clalc McKelway and Charles S. Wilbur
permanent receivers, each to file a bond In SIW.OOD.
Mr. McKelway afterward. In a letter to Jostle.
Maddox. declined to serve.
In th. letter he says:
While I am complimented by your entirely un
solicited designation of me to be one of the two
permanent receivers of the Anglo- American Sav
ings and Loan Association, and while I sincerely
thank you for this mark of confidence and es
teem. I cannot, on reflection, consent to accept the
appointment.
The nature and scope of my duties as editor of
this paper require all the time and strength that
I should give to any work, and with it no outside
Interests and obligations, attractive howsoever
they might be. should Interfere. I, therefore, on my
beat Judgment, yet with sincere thanks for your
intended consideration, respectfully decline the ap
pointment.
Justice Maddox yesterday denied an application
by Clarence A. Samson, of Philadelphia, a stock- '
holder tn the Anglo-American Savings and Loan
Association, for him to show cause why he. Sam
son, should not be made a defendant In the suit
by the Attorney-General to dissolve the corpora
tion. Mr. Samson alleged that the proposed trans
fer of the real estate of the Anglo-American Savings
and Loan Association to th. Empire State Realty
Company was illegal, and in fraud of th. stock
holders, and he wanted to set that up In an answer.
NEW INTERNATIONAL COPK.
THE BRITISH GOVERNMENTS REVISED SYS
TEM OF SIGNALS RECEIVED AT TUB
TREASURY DEPARTMENT.
Washington. Jan. 5 <Bpeelal).-The Bureau of
Navigation of the. Treasury Department has re
ceived from the British Government the new in
ternational code put In force on the first. day of
this year for the use of vessels and signal stations
under British control. -The new code Is much more
extensive than the one now in use by all nations.
More letters are employed, and, consequently, a
greater number of flags. In order- to use the new
code all ships and signal stations will have to be
supplied with seven additional flags, making twen
ty-seven In all. The new cod. will be used con
currently with the old one . throughout the present
year, but from January 1. IDO3, the new cod. book.
which by that time will be published in all lan
gruages, will '-« th« universal signal guide.
As explained by officials hi Washington, the re
vision of the International signal code has boas
mad* necessary by commercial developments. just
as similar Improvements were necessary in th.
past. In 1857 the international system was first
extensively revised, but the Improvements of that
day did not meet business requirements thirty years
later, and In IH7 a committee of thirteen experi
enced navigators, including representatives of the
most Important maritime nations, brought the code
up to date. From time to time many signals have
Men added through circulars issued by the London
Board of Trade. Under the latest revision, now
completed, many of the more Important signals in
the old code which required three flag hoists can
now be made by two flag hoists, owing to th» in
creared number of flags employed, and the four
flag hoists may be made by two or three flag hoists.
A large number of new Mjaali with was n.t*
hoists have been included In th* new system. Th.
reduction in the number of flags In a hoist Is in
the direction of greater accuracy and convenience.
Hew sUrnals have been alas adopted. conststinK- of
balls, cones and drums. Under this system small
vessels, whose owners have not generally been
willing to supply the requisite flags, may now be
furnished with it mentis of communicating at a
distance which Is Inexpensive. This extended cod.
will enable conversation to be carried on between
vessels at sea on any subject and in all languages.
