Former Bill to Be Modified So

Mew York Sun Spmolal Smrvlom
Washington, Oct. 1. —A new ship subsidy
Dill will be introduced in the senate early
in the next session of congress. It will
differ from the one which Senators Frye
and Hanna made strenuous efforts to have
passed last winter. What the differences
are to be are to be determined between
this time and December, but it is de
termined they shall not alter the bill in
any radical manner. Some efforts will
be made, however, to make the new meas
ure acceptable to those who opposed the
old one. The adherents of the ship sub

the issue to the front at the coming ses
One of the most Important questions
pertaining- to the new bill which will
come before the Boston conference on
Wednesday centers around the proposition
to pay subsidies to foreign-built ships now
owned wholly or in major part by Amer
icans. It will be recalled that it was
against this provision of the old bill that
the greatest hostility was shown at the
last session of congress and it is under
stood the object of the conference at Bos
ton will be to so frame this paragraph as
to not excite the same dangerous oppo
sition. The question of shortening the
period of the operation of the subsidy law
from the twenty years, as was proposed
in the old bill, to about twelve or fifteen
years will also be considered.

Washington, Oct. I.—lf there ever was
any doubt .as to President Roosevelt's
policy toward the Philippines, the prac- j
tical annihilation of Company C has swept |
it aside. To callers Mr. Roosevelt has
spoken in no unmistakable terms of his
determination to pursue the policy of his i
predecessor and effect the suppression of j
the rebellion in the Philippine archipel
ago. ''This declaration applies to Samar
as well as to the other islands. , By rea
son of the necessity of taking action j
which will counterbalance the reverse
suffered near Balangiga, immediate mili
tary operations will be directed to the
destruction of all rebel forces In Samar. I
President Roosevelt is not disposed to in
terfere in the situation until he knows
all about it.
Acting Secretary of War Sanger cabled
to General Chaffee commending his pur
pose to make a thorough investigation
and directing him to not only report the I
result of the inquiry, but to furnish the j
department with a full description of the
military situation in Samar. There are j
between 2,000 and 3,000 troops in Samar. :
These will be sufficient for action at pres- J
ent, but not for effecting the pacification j
of the island. It will, therefore, be neces
sary for General Chaffee to supply Gen
eral Hughes with additional troops. These
must come from Luzon if they can be
spared. Quiet prevails in Luzon, but the
presence of troops is necessary to keep
the natives under control.
The war department understands that
there has been recently an increase of
secret societies in Luzon, indicating that
the Filipinos are still seditious. The au
j thorities are not disposed to send addi
tional troops from the United States, in
view of the general intention to reduce j
the military within the next year. If more '■
men are needed, however., President
Roosevelt will undoubtedly send them.
There will be no hesitation about it.
Shortage of Good German Teachers

Special to The Journal.
Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. —Teachers of
German are scarce in Milwaukee. They
get married too quickly. Even this Ger
man-American metropolis—this Berlin 11.
—cannot supply the demand by the public
schools for instructors in the Teutonic
tongue. Superintendent A. B. Abrams of
the department of instruction in German, |
said to-day that there was not a single j
teacher of German available for positions |
which might at any time be vacated by
death or resignation of members of the
present force of instructors. • ■>..'
"Four new schools will be opened before
long," said Superintendent Abrams to
day "and at present there is not a single
available applicant for the position of
teacher in German. Besides that, there
are the usual exigencies caused by res
ignation or death. I expect a few va
cancies before long. There must be some
thing particularly attractive about teach
ers of German, because they get married
off so quickly that we cannot keep up the
supply. I think there have been a dozen
married this year."

Peking, Oct. I.—There is increasing op
position, especially on the part of the
British and Dutch ministers, to the plan
of the Chinese to send commissioners to
the various Chinese colonies throughout
the world to collect funds to aid in pay
ing the indemnity to the foreign powers.
Five of the ministers chiefly concerned
have apparently disposed of the matter
by stating, in reply to Li Hung Chang's
request that they issue passports to the
commanders, that they have not the power
to isue the documents except to citizens
of the countries they represent. There
is a justifyable suspicion that the scheme
involves blackmail and persecution in the
future, when the information gained by
the commissioners would enable corrupt
authorities to force endless contributions.

Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Minn., Oct. 1. —There are some
strange features to the timber market here
and to the position of head-of-the-lake
lumbermen. During the past season from
time to time timber tracts favorably lo
cated for sawing at Duluth or Superior
have been sold to men keated further
away and whose logging costs for the logs
must be in excess of those that would be
met if the logs were brought here. Still
it has been the fact time and again fhat
the more distant logger has been able to
pay a price for the timber that the Duluth
man has not seen his way clear to of
fer, and many millions of feet have been
1 sold for mills some distance off that must
fairly go around Duluth to get to the
saws. Duluth lumberman see this con
dition and a few days ago W. C. McClure,
of Mitchell & McClure, came out in a
statement in which he said that the pres
ent year will be the biggest in the history
of the local lumber industry and that in
the future it will decline in importance.
"Our firm," he said, "will never cut
within 20,000,000 feet as much as we are
| cutting thi3 year." He spoke of the pur
i chase of timber by mills some distance
| away, all round Duluth, and then re
ferred to the log rates of the roads to the
north, which he thought were unnecessar
ily high. He thought that at the present
discrimination between the rates on logs
and lumber on the lines to the north that
small millfc would be fostered and the
logging traffic to Duluth would decline.
Prices the west is paying fbr thin sawn
lumber ore better than lumbermen here
can get out of the trees, sawing them as
the eastern market demands. All the lo
cal lumbermen see this condition and N-none
of thrai have any remedy at hand, ex
| cept for the east to pay on a higher basis
for western lumber, and this is a mat
ter entirely within the province of the
eastern, buyer. If he cannot get lumber
less elsewhere, he will be forced to pay
more and will pay it here or elsewhere,
but if he can buy in other markets at the
present proportionate price, he will not
compete with the west for the timber"
around the head of Lake Superior and the
future of Duluth-Superior as a milling
center will be brief.

board has undertaken such work.
The Duluth & Iron Range road has built
a new style of logging car that can be set

alone prevents still jathers from getting

Is to build a road from a point on the
Fosston line near Sheviin to the vicinity
of Itasca lake, where he has 200,000,000
feet of timber to take to his Bemidjl and
Akeley mills. Some fourteen miles north
of Bemidji the old logging road of Hal

town of Farley is being platted. It will be
the center of a vast lumbering industry,

Farmera of Day and Brown Lose
Much of Their Wheat.
Special to The Journal.
Aberdeen, S. D., Oct. I.—The rainfall in
this part of the state during the month
of September, according to departmental
reports, was 7.29 inches, and in conse
quence threshing has been seriously de
layed. In some parts of this county it is
estimated that 30 to 50 per cent of the
grain is unthreshed and a great part of
this has been ruined for any purpose but
feeding. In Day county much grain still
stands in the fields in shock and is badly
sprouted. The delay in threshing has en
abled farmers to bring their potatoes to
market and large quantities are arriving
daily. The price paid by dealers is about
75 cents a bushel, and while the yield
is not large, the quality is excellent. Lit
tle attention is paid to potato raising
here, the crop being planted entirely as
an incidental.
Answers have been filed by several own
ers of land advertised to be sold for taxes
under the scavenger law, but in all cases
the validity of the taxes is questioned, not
the validity of the law or the steps that
have been taken under it. Payment on
600 lots in the village of Ordway is re
sisted on the ground that the owner, a
resident of Chicago, has paid taxes on
the land as acreage property.
One hundred and thirty-seven cars of
live stock passed through this city on

Patriquin Said to Have a Strong
Case Au'tiiiiNt the Milwaukee.
Special to The Journal.
Appleton, Minn., Oct. I.—William Le-
Roy Patriquin has begun action against
the Milwaukee railway company to recover
f50,000 for injuries sustained by falling
from a railroad bridge near this city on
Sept. 13, and the case will be tried in
the court of the twelfth judicial district
in November. Patriquin met with his in
juries through the negligence of the train
crew. Shortly before reaching Appleton
on the night of the accident and after the
brakeman had called the station, the train
came to a full stop, and the young man,
thinking he was at the station, attempted
to alight and fell nearly thirty feet from
the bridge upon which the coach happened
to be standing. His spine was injured,
resulting in permanent paralysis of the
lower portion of his body. Several of the
leading physicians of the state have diag
nosed his case and all agree that his in
juries could hardly be more serious, al
though there is a difference of opinion as
to whether they will prove fatal in the
near future.
Miss Hattie Grant and Glen Kingsley,
prominent Appleton young people, were

They are members of two of the oldest

All the land that was offered was sold

at time of sale, and the balance divided
into four equal payments, coming due five
years apart, and drawing 6 per cent in
