AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT'S PLAH Financial Aid Will Be Extended in Certain Instances. CONTROLLER'S APPROVAL Mr. Tracewell, the controller of the treasury gave his official sanction today to a pfan the Department of Agriculture IS formulating to help American fruit growers secure a market for American fruit abroad. Mr. Wilson Is convinced that there is a great market abroad for Ameri can fruit, but this market has never been developed because fruit grower* would not risk the loss of shipments. Scientists of the department claim that Europeans are amazed at the size, quality and flavor of many of the fruits of this country, and hold that it is only a matter of time when American fruit can command foreign mar kets if it once obtains a foothold, mat there may be a beginning in the manner*of shipments Secretary Wilson proposes to use a part of an appropriation made at the last session of Congress either to guar antee a minimum return t??ns or to defray a whole or part of the trans PT?taaTettCehrartoe Controller Tracewell Sec ^Tthe'appropStloa for ?pomoloslcal investigations, 1U02,' digest of approprla ? ions l'J02, page 343, this language Is used. i. ??????; to Investigate, in co operation with the other divisions of the department and experiment stations of the several states, the market c0"f'^Stafes footing the fruit trade of the Lnited fatate and foreign countries, and the methods of harvesting, packing, storjnforantheSexperi friiit and vegetables, and for tne exptu mental shipment of fruits to '?relgn coun tries, for the purpose of ,ln??ea?l?? lfor all portation of American frult(s,an^ or necessary expenses connected witn tne practical work of the same Questions propounded. "Certain questions have arisen In con nection with the attempt to carry out provisions of this appropriation act which seems to require authoritative decision. These questions have taken form as fo - lows; "(1) May this department, under the au thority of this act, enter into co-operative arrangements with dealers and exporters whereby the department shall guarantee a definite minimum net return per P^kagt on fruit picked, packed, shipped and s .Id under direction from the pomcriogist of this department through the ordinary chan nels of trade? Under such an agreement the exporter would receive the net pro ceeds of sales; that Is, all proceeds after deducting freight and other charges con nected with the shipments and sales. If this net return should be less than the guaranteed amount the difference between the net proceeds actually realized and the guaranteed return would be paid the ex porter out of the money appropriated for ?pomological Investigations. Department's Responsibility. "Respecting this project the' pomologist of this department says: 'This plan seems highly desirable If It can be adopted, as under It the shipper has the incentive of probable profit to stimulate in him due care and attention in the handling of the fruit in the best possible way. The de partment simply assumes the risk of losses due to unforeseen accidents in transit or to a temporary glut and consequent low price in the foreign market on arrival of the consignment. In short, the department would, in effect, agree to make good to the experimental shipper a stipulated price based on that obtainable at home in case the shipment for any reason should fail to realize that price. "(2) If you shall decide that the law does not permit iho department to enter Into arrangements by which minimum prices may be guaranteed to exporters, then the following question Is presented: May the department contract to defray the whole or any part of the transportation of fruits belonging to private owners (the packing, shipping, etc., to be directed by the officials of the department), the entire proceeds of the sales going to the person who owns and ships the fruit? "(3) If neither of the plans above pre sented shall meet with your approval, then the question remains: Has the department, under the language of the appropriation act above quoted, authority to purchase fruit outright for experimental export shipment and sale through commercial channels. If so, may the proceeds of such sales be used for further purchases in continuing the experimental shipments as in the first instance, or must the proceeds of all sales be covered into the treasury as 'miscellaneous receipts.' "(4) Under the authority 'to investigate ? ? ? the market conditions affecting the fruit trade in the United States and for eign countries, and the methods of harvest ing, packing, storing and shipping fruits and vegetables,' is It permissible for the department to conduct experiments with fruits in storage and may fruits for such experiments be purchased? At the termi nation of such experiments must the pro ceeds of the sale of the fruits found mar ketable be covered into the treasury as 'miscellaneous receipts?' "If the department Is limited to the pur chase, shipment and sale of such fruits and vegetables, and If the proceeds of such sales cannot be used in continuing the shipments, the amount appropriated is al together too small to allow of experimental operations on a scale sufficient to Influence the exportation of American fruits to any appreciable extent. The language of the appropriation is by no means specific, and inasmuch as the suggested plans for co operation In the experimental shipments are quite different from any work hereto fore engaged in by this department, the matter is submitted to you for your advice as to the legality of the several proposed methods." Controller Tracewell'i Decision. Mr. Tracewell briefly states that Mr. Wil son has authority to make a guarantee to private owners or shippers, as suggested in his first proposition, or pay transporta tion charges, as suggested in the second proposition. Mr. Tracewell suggests that care be taken to protect the United States from imposition or loss. Anocostla and Vicinity. Mr. F. E. Butterfield of Congress Heights, who is superintending the preliminary prep arations for the construction there of the Episcopal chapel that is to be erected through the aid bestowed by Mr. and Mrs A. E. Randle of Congress Heights, states that the plans have finally been prepared by the architect and show the building to be a pretentious one. The chapel is to be named the Esther Chapel, and is to serve as a memorial to the mother of Mrs. Ran dle. The site remains to be selected. The members of the congregation of the Bethlehem Baptist Church are looking for ward to the holding of early dedicatory exercises to follow the extensive Improve ments and remodeling to which the edifice has been subjected during late months. Some interior improvements are under way at the Congress Heights Methodist Episcopal Chapel. Mrs. L.. M. Woods is having constructed on Park place. Congress Heights, a two story cottage. Mr. Fulton Karr of Maple avenue is stopping with friends in Rensselaer coun ty. N. Y. Miss Jennie Q. Bartley of Spring street left this morning for a visit to the Buffalo exposition. Mr. and Mrs. James W. Bartley and young son went to Piney Point today. Promised to Leave the City. Harry McNab, who has b*$n in jail for several days on the charge of making threats of personal violence against his wife, was today released on personal bonds by Judge O'Donnell of the Police Court on condition that he would leave the city at once. \ QOLDENBERO'S OOLDENBERQ'S I GOLDENBERG'S OOLDENBERO'S I A NOTABLE FRIDAY FOR Q Assortments, Short Lengths and Odds and Ends &ccumu?

Republican Candidate for Governor Nominated at Cedar Rapid*. Following is the ticket nominated by the Iowa state republican convention at Cedar Rapids yesterday: Governor?A. B. Cummins, Des Moines. Lieutenant governor?John Herriott, Stu art. Judge of the supreme court?S. M. Wea ver, Iowa Falls. Railroad commissioner?E. C. Brown, Sheldon. Superintendent of public Instruction?R. C. Barrett, Osage. A dispatch says Cummins swept tho board. He and his followers took every thing that they went for, and from the first rap of the #avel to putting out the lights there was r.o time when they did not have the situation well in hand. They had a hard fight before the committee on credentials in ihe effort to save the delega tions of Jackson a:id Carroll counties and came from the committee room beaten men. They expected to have six out of > z eleven members of the committee, but the vote In committee went against them In both cases by five to six. This defeat w&s of no particular conse quence, however^ as they had the strength on the floo? of tfce convention to seat their men whenex^r tfcs? question came up. They won their right on the first ballot taken In the convention, and from that time to the finish there'never was the slightest doubt of the ultimate result. The platform adopted expresses "grati fication over, the indorsement given to the administration of President McKlnley by the decisive majorities of last year, and rejoices In the manifold benefits resulting to the country from his re-election, which has Inspired new confidence in the busi ness world, established authority and or der In our new possessions as* strength ened the position of this country before the world." , The people of the country are congratu lated upon the "enjoyment of a state of prosperity that blesses every class and ?community." The work of the Filty-slxth Congress, its action for the reduction of taxation, and its constructive legislation giving effect to the party declarations of 1806 and 1000, are approved. The platform continues: "We would emphasise our indorsement of its action in more firmly establishing our money system upon a gold basis, in providing for civil government in Porto This is the season of store cleaning; the season when all odds and ends and broken sizes resulting from a summer of busy selling are cleared away?without a care for profit or actual worth.
