The stimulus given to Palestine trade Is In great measure due to plentiful rains and consequent good cereal and orange croDs and th? unt tlve restrictions. Twenty years ago the revenue was about ffJ.ooo. while last year It was estimated at $2UO.OOO. Another incentive to trade is the annually growing number of tourists who now visit the country in spring and autumn, arriving frequently in specially chartered vessels.

The relics of the famous clown Grlmaldl, which are to be sold In London during the autumn, do not bear any reference 11 his favorite but little-known hobby. When his Inimitable talents as a clown this popular favorite combined a passion for entomology, which he was able to practice amid fields and hedgerows which have long since been transformed into bricks and mortar. Indeed, Ills energy and enthusiasm led him even further afield, and in the counties of Surrey and Kent the Camberwell Beauty and other species which have since become ln?. creasingly scarce fell victims to his net.

Beginning with next Friday, November 30, and continuing until Thursday, December 6, the Young Men's Christian Association of this c'.ty will conduct what is J ulanned to be the greatest religious cam- | , paign ever conducted in Washington, excelling even previous one.1? under the aus- , pices of the local association. Fred B. , Smith, the noted Y. M. C. A. speaker, who not long ago returned from a successful tour of the world, will conduct the series of meetings. Donald Chalmers, basso, will sing and will have charge of the musical i features of each meeting. Other prominent Y. M. C. A. workers from American cities will assist the local staff of secretaries and* I officers at various stages of the campaign. Mr. R. A. Waite, jr.. of New York city, has been here for the past two days in con- . ference with the local authorities in arranging the program for the campaign, which is to be carried out under the guidance of the religious work committee of the board of association directors. Commissioner H. B. F. Mucfarland is the chairman of that committee and his assistants are Miles M. Shand, Hugh T. Thrift, ' Charles F. Nesblt, John B. Sleman, jr., W. ! H. H. Smith and M. W. Baldwin. H. M. ; Arnold, the religious work director, will witH Mr Smith. The exercises will be formally opened at ' 6 o'clock p.m. Friday, when a supper and i conference will be held In the banquet room j of the T. M. C. A. building, 73(5 G street northwest. The dinner will be followed, at 8 o'clock, by a big meeting in the gym naslum of the association building, to which I Invitations will be sent out. 1 Saturday Program l Saturday will be a busy day for the lead- 1 ers of the campaign. At !?:30 o'clock a.m. there will be a boys' rally, In the boy^ building. At noon Mr. Smith and h!s party will Join the men at mess at the marine 1 barracks, and he will make a brief address. At G o'clock is scheduled a meeting of the , high school boys' committee, including two representative boys from each of the high schools of the city. During the evening a 1 reception to Fred Smith will be given In the ? lobby of the association building. Sunday Is expected to develop one of the ' notable features of the campalgn, a big ' meeting In the Belasco Theater at .i:w p. i m. being the most important. A special \ musical program will be included in the j service. At 9:30 a.m. there will be a meeting of the dormitory men in the lobby of ' the association building. At 7:.T0 o'clock t there will be a meeting held in the First j Congregational Church, at which Mr. Fred B. Smith will be the speaker. ' Monday at noon there will be a conference ' with the ministers of the city. At 4:30 8 o'clock a theater meeting for women will be 1 held, and in the evening there will be a f meeting in a church, in either Anaoostla or ** * "I Tiiflcflav's ftfhedtllft for J XVIUUiil x icaoaiiv, -?

The Northeast Temple will be the scene of the evening assemblage. Meeting for Students.

The attendance _ at this supper, It is believed, will be a good ? indication of the success of the campaign. 5 The evening meeting, the closing one, will h be held at Fort Myer. This religious campaign is expected to mark an advanced step over anything ever I attempted In the country. The theater meetings held in the past have been copied by J; many associations In other cities; the whirl- ; wind campaign for a new building has been attempted in a manner similar to that car ried out here in many western cities, Including Houston and Dallas, Texas; Detroit, Mich.; St. Paul, Minn., and other places, so it is expected this series of religious meetings will set an example and a pace for other associations to follow. Fred B. Smith, who is to be the leader, has just returned from a western trip, having been very successful In Denver, Col., and other large cities. Donald Chalmers, ? the basso who accompanies mm, has won for himself a reputation as one of New r York city's best bassos, singing there until 1 recently !n one of the largest churches. ~ Busy Week Ahead.

Thanksgiving night the first annual dinner to "young men away from home" will be *' given, and the number of acceptances already received by the association indicate that the attendance will be large. Friday, as stated, will begin the campaign meetings ? under Fred B. Smith. COIN FOB FILIPINOS. * Plan Submitted for Secretary Taft's t Consideration. 1 Brig. Gen. Edwards, chief of the bureau r of Insular affairs, and Charles A. Conant of 1 New York, who was a member of the com- c mission which framed the Philippine cur- a rency system, have presented to Secretary 8 Taft a plan for the recoinage of the Phil- ? lpplne silver money. That plan, however, will not be made pulbic until It has been G aaopieu Dy me I'nuippine commissioners 11 and approved by the President, as pro- ' vlded by the law authorizing the recoinage. " The necessity for the recoinage was to ^ reduce the percentage of silver to an t amount less tlian Its bullion value In or- P der to put an end to its being melted. The P law provided that the percentage of silver o should not be less than seven parts silver f to three parts alloy. It has been found t that if that amount of alloy is used it will a make a very hard coin and that It will not C stamp as easily as silver. Therefore. It is believed that it would be a mucn easier to counterfeit It than It would v to reproduce the present coin. The bureau 1 of Insular affairs and their advisers con- r sldered the advisability of reducing the i: weight of the coin without decreasing the a percentage of silver, and It Is believed that t Is the plan that has been recommended, g The plan will be cabled to the Philippine h commissioners at once. n 1!

The new government prison at Atlanta has but lately been thrown open to the government convicts of the countrv who arc at nreu. ent In the different state institutions at expense of the government.

He had a narvelous resemblance to the first Napoeon In face and features, but he was much aller than that hero, being about six feet it height, and he was shod as elegantly s any Parisian dame.

MODERNIZING} CHINA. Startling Decline in the Exports of Tea. Special Cablegram to The Star. PEKING, November 24.?The tea and silk rades of China are In a bad1 way, and here is no use on the part of the governnent to longer attempt to disguise this act. In 1804 the silks represented 82 per ent of the exports of the empire. Now they ccount for only 45 per cent. The commisioner of customs at Oanton is authority or the statement that the tea industry eems doomed. The London customs in 1904 registered ,000 chests of tea adulterated with flings and sand, hence it may be Inferred hat the tea consumers alone are not to dame. This shifting of the tea trade can >est be shown by the fact that in 1904 the Jnited Kingdom consumed 16,557,720 ./"VIlnrJ-Q nf r*l>JnQ tOO oc oarolnaf 04A oou no* w? %/> ? vvv?, CM ugunujb 4.TV, JmU lounds from India and Ceylon, and In 1905 nly 0,300,000 pounds.

MUSTERING OUT OF TROOPS Addresses Delivered at Meeting of As* tor Camp, No. 6. MANY VETERANS PRESENT For Best Interest of the Army and # Good Citizenship Generally? Yells and Cheers. The action of President Roosevelt Jn dismissing from ,the military service, three companies of the 25th United States Infantry was indorsed last evening at a gathering of Spanish War Veterans comnncpH of mombprs nf oie'bt nf on mnA In the District of Columbia. The occasion was a eampfire given by Col. John Jacob Aster Camp, No. 6, United Spanish War Veterans, at Costello's Hall, to whi?h soldiers generally had been invited. A number of Grand Army veterans were also in the gathering. This action mentioned was brought about by an address delivered by Department Commander J. Walter Mitchell, who occupied a seat on the platform. Significance was attached to the fact hhil tuc iiiciiiuci n ui ^rtiup, uiiuci whose auspices the campfire was given, are all former regular soldiers of the United States army, and that every man among them was either disabled in the war with Spain by either disease or bullets. Best Interests of Army. Commander Mitchell began . by saying that an army officer had asked him what the Spanish War Veterans thought of the action of their comrade in the White House In discharging three companies of the 2jth Infantry. He replied, he said, that all American suiuiers nave ine greaiesi iaiLii In Col. Roosevelt and his judgment; that "we do not believe he has erred in this matter, and that what he did was for the best Interests of the entire American army and for good citizenship generally." Capt. Mitchell Intimated that had the three discharged companies been composed of white troops there would perhaps have been no protests, no indignation meetings, nor communications to the newspapers condemning the President's course. ti,a ~ .i ?I_J i_ Ji ? X I1C X I COIUCI i L 9 UCV19IUU lil IIIC mailer, the department commander Insisted, was i based upon the evidence before him. That evidence was furnished by tried and trusted army officers of long experience In the military service. It showed that American 1 soldiers wearing the uniform of their country had committed an act of outlawry which, had it been committed by men, white or colored, not wearing the army uniform nor seeking protection within a military post, would have resulted in their arrest and punishment by the law they had I- ~ * - V- - ^ > WIUICU.

The quiet judgment of the great American people, which Is analytical and just, has rendered Its verdict, he believed, and It Is that President Roosevelt acted conscientiously and to the best of his judgment, and In doing so gave the entire army a square deal. The department commander deprecated the false impression that, he said. Is sought to be created that the President has "turned against the colored race." as one of the writers on f Vi A cii)\4 o *?*! * t. /N 1 liiv OUUJV.W iiiviitiaicu, auu ^uimcu IU II1C Booker Washington incident to disprove the i assertion.

I Difficult Matter to Decide. * "The case of the colored soldiers of the ^ 25th Infantry," Commander Mitchell said ' In conclusion, "was a difficult one to decide, but I contend that in his decision after weighing all the evidence presented j to him Col. Roosavelt was almost Solo- i monlc. He acted In the best faith and had 1 the offending troops been as white as the lily their fate would have been the same. TT ?

He said he indorsed the remarks of Commander Mitchell to the letter, and pre- I diced that Spanish War Veterans fron? "the Icy waters of Maine to the blue Pacific" would also Indorse the address and take action In support of President Roosevelt, as would all law abiding American soldiers and good citizens, colored and white. The sentiments of the department commander were later, on motion of Acting Quartermaster J. F. Sullivan of Astor Camp, unanimously indorsed by a rising vote. It was decided to frame resolutions to that effect and present them to the - 1-i? ?- * - " ' " 1 xri caiucui upuu ma return 10 inis city. Commander G. E.

He wa3 glad to see a gathering: of soldiers representing so many states of the Union and every branch of the military service Indorse the President's action, which "was for the best interests of the army." He added that the 10th colored cavalrymen were highly regarded by the people of Port Sam Houston, Tex., when that regiment was stationed there. Should Stand by Roosevelt. Department Inspector E. L.
