An an onymous letter was received recently by Mrs. Harrie Falkner, of Yalesvllle, Conn., containing the information that her husband of a few months was at tentive to a yr-ng widow living in Mcridoii.

For two days Mrs. Faulkner kept close watch on her husband. She said today: "Saturday evening he said that he was obliged to go to Meriden. When he went out I followed.

JAMES YOUNGER COMMITS SUICIDE Despondent Frcm 111 Health and Separation From Friends. St. Paul, October 19 James Younger, formerly a member of the notorious band of outlaws which infested the western country a quarter of a century ago, committed suicide today by shoot ing. He left a lj'.ter to the press in which he gives as the reason for his act despondency over his continued ill health and separation from his friends. Younger, since his pardon from the state penitentiary in July of last year, had led an exemplary life. He wast I years of age. On a bureau in his room was found a long envelope, on one sid ; of which was written. "To all that's good and true I love'and bid farewell. "JIM YOUNGER." On the other side were thc-e words': "Oh, lassie, good bye. All relatives, Just stay from me. No crocidile tears wanted. Reporters, be my friends, Burn me up. "JIM YOUNGER."" The letter contained a packet of let ters that passed between Younger and a lady with whom he is said to have been much In love. The lady, who was prominently connected, is said to have reciprocated his nfTcrction and it was reported one time that they were to be married. The lady's relatives raised ftronii'Mis objections to th- wedding, nnd a further ohrticle w;is th? fact pointed out tht thft paroled prisoner could not legally contract a marriage. An effort to. overcome this by securing n full pardon failed, and this, it is thought, had much to do with Young er's determination to end his life. PORTUGUESE STRIKE. Lisbon, October 19.

BRITISH LOSSES IN SOMLILAND Two Officers and Fifty Soldiers Kille In an Ambush Planned by the Pol lowers of Mad Mullah, Against Whom a Fo native Expedition Bad Been Dispatched. London, October 13. The foreign of fice has issued an undated dispatch from Colonel Cobb, commanding one of the columns of the British forces oper ating against Mad Mullah in Somali land. Cobb says: "My force reached Ere go this morning. When about one day's march north of Mudug I was at tacked in the thick bush. Two ad vances were made, and the enemy beaten back in the morning. Their !oscc3 were heavy, and we captured 100 rifles. In the afternoon a recon naissance waa made and after sharp fighting the enemy was again driven off. I deeply regret the following casual tits: Colonel Phillips and Captain Angus and fifty men killed and about one hundred men wounded. The latter include Captain Howard ar.d Lieuten ant Everett, but both are doing well. There were severe Iosr.es. among the transport and ridirg camels. The force will reach the stockade camp to morrow and will advance to the at tack of the enemv." A later dispatch from Col. Swayne in command of the expedition snys he is retiring on Bolntle. He asks th-it six hundred further reliable troops be despatched forthwith. o ANOTHER STRIKE. Ended by the Grod Offices of President Roosevelt. New York, October 19.

COPPER PRICES GOING HIGHER It i Intrinsic Commercial Value Has - JJot Bten Disturbed. Sjckar.e, October 19. W. H. Nichols of the Nichols Chemical Co. of New York, who has teen inspecting the mines of the Boundary section, had thi3 to say In a recent interview at Grand Forks, B. C: "Copper has been dealt with a little harshly, and the drcvp in prices has fiighier.ed timid people, but its intri.i t!c v:i!ue has not been disturbed. Copper consumption is bound to in ereare, nr.d I look t- see it go to 12 or 13 cents, ar.d possibly to 14 cents pur pound. Influences at work not alto gether disconnected with stock Job bing are keeping it down. If the nat ural l-w of supdy and demand were not interfered with the price would advance. "Our New York refinery has an an nual production of about 0.000.000 rounds of refined copper, and by-products in the way of gold and silver worth 115.000,000. We smelt ores and refine blister copper and mattes that contain the precious metals. The re fining is done by electrolytic process. Our firm was one of the pioneers In the field. By the application of electricity a purer quality of copper Is producod than was formerly possible. In addi tion the gold and silver values in th copper matte arc saved, but under the old methods all these by-products were lost. "The blister topper shipped to us by the Granby Smelter Co. is refined at the minimum tariff because it Is free from antimony, arsenic and bismuth. These foreign substances are frequent ly encountered In the matte from other countries. We draw our raw mater ial from Australia, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Mexico, Colorado and Montana. "I have examined a good many smelters in the cast and west at var ious periods, but have no hesitation in saying that the Granby plant Is the most modern I ever saw. The Granby smelter is away attend of most of the Fmclters I have rccn as regards the prime attributes cf economy, and man agement. I did not visit the other Boundary reduction works, but under stand that they are also of the most modern character. "I traversed a considerable portion of the three miles of underground workings In the Granby mines at Phoenix. While not unprepared for surprises the magnitude of the ore bodies far surpassed my expectations. They are the largest ore bodies I ever inpected. and I have had occasion to visit a great many mines, including my own in Mexico. I shall leave to others the task of estimating the millions of tons of ore in sight or blocked out " o LAUNDRY WAR IN ST. PAUL. Costs Only Six Cents to Get a Shirt Washed -Cake of Soap a Gift. St. Paul. October 19. Some of the laundries have started a rate war that for the present at least means two clean shirts a week for the frugal householder. If the radical competition continues four shirts may be the rule, with handsome prizes. The most remarkable cut In laundry Tsricos came when one Sixth-street firm announced that It would furnish clean shirts for six cents each, wash all the family hose it could get for three cents a pair and turn out underwear at five cnts per suit. Collars and cuffs were quoted at the old figures of one. cent each. To take advantage of these prices however, patrens must bring and call for their own goods. As an Inducement a cake of fine toilet soap is included in every package. The slashing of laundry prices in St. Paul has extended over a period of a year, and now finds those who delight In clean linen enjoying rates that rep resent a cut of more than 50 per cent. A year ago a shirt cost twelve cents and underwear the same figure. Later shirts were reduced to ten cents and underwear to eight cents, to be fol lowed not long after by a rate of eight and seven cents respectively. Now it is six and five cents, and the bottom has by no means been reached. Some of the laundries still adhere to the old figures, but they are decidedly In the minority. LOW PRICE FOR WOOD.

OLD DOMINION SUES FOR STOCK Action Brought to Determine Tech ' nical Questions. B-?ston. October 19. The Old Domin ion Copper Mining & Smelting Co., op erating at G'.obe, Ariz., . has brought two suits in equity against A .S. Big elow, lt3 former president. An attach ment levied on his property has been released by the filing of a bond for jr-OO.OOO. The suits which are brought in the supreme judicial court and are returnable Nov. 3, are brought to re cover 30,000 shares of Old Dominion or the proceeds thereof, which it is al leged were wrongfully delivered to A. S. Bige'.ow and the late Leonard Lewl sohn, a director in the company. In ex change for deeds to four mining claims which have never been worked and which the present management claims are of doubtful value. Recovery of i;0,000 shsres, which were turned over to th2 same parties for promoters fees and expenses in con nection with the organization of the company in 1S95 is sought also. It is undfiFtuod that the suit is based solely M;' '.' !'.'-;.il grounds, there being no dis pute as to the Issue and disposition of the stock as set forth in the bills. The only question i3 as to the authority of the directors fo to dispose of it and whether the company received value thereof. When the company was organized the constituent properties were bought at a cost in excess of $1,000,000 and 5C0O.C0O In cash was put into the treas ury. Against that the syndicate took 8S.0C0 shares of stock and 20,000 were taken by public subscription at par value of $ 2".pei share. The 50,000 shares in dispute were taken by insid ers it as alleged. o STRUCK FOR HIGHER PAY. Petersburg, Va., October 19. For some days past the Virginia Passenger and I'ower company have had 300 or more men at work near this city felling trees and clearing land for the widen ing and deepening of their canal for i distance cf four. miles. This morning this force struck for an advance of pay. They were receiving Jl per day and de manded $1.25. Their demand was hot acceded to. EARLY RECALL OF TROOPS LIKELY Governor Stone Wants Them Home ia Time for Election. Harrisburg, October 21. Troops will be withdrawn from the mining regions as scon as terms for settling the strike are acepted, or as soon as Governor Stone is satisfied the presence of the soldiers is no longer necessary to main tain order and protect life and property. The governor is anxious to recall ths military as scon as possible, on account of the enormous expense to the state of keeping the men on duty. He hopes to have all of them home before election day, to avoid the additional expense of paying commissioners to take the vote of the soldiers in the field and bring the returns to Harrisburg. ' The third brigade, a portion of which has been on duty since the latter part of July, will probably be ordered home before the first and second brigades, which have not yet been in the field one week. It is not likely that all the troops will be withdrawn at one time. The movement will be by regimants, and may cover a week or ten days from the time cf beginning. Governor Stone and Adjutant General Stewart are the only officers of the na tional guard In Harrisburg tonight, and neither of them will discuss the proba ble settlement of the strike or the time and manner in which the soldiers will ACCOUNTANT Up-to-date, labor-saving systems of bookkeeping installed for large or small concerns; mining company books ad justed: annual closing of books ar ranged.

SE PTE&1BER EXPORTS GREATEST ON RECORD Except for the Same Month Two Years Ago Export' Business for That Month Had Almost Doubled Within Twelve Years Causes of Fluctuation Within Recent Years The Effect of the Corn Crop Failure Last Year The Report of the Treasury Bureau of Statistics, Shows That the Tide Is Again Rising After an Ebb of One Year. Washington, October 19. The export figures for September are extremely en couraging. They are the largest evr sliown for September, with the single exception of that month In the year 19C9, and fall less than half a million dollars belcw the high water marl: made In that year. The figures, as just presented by the treasury bureau of statistics, show the total exports in September, 1902 to be $115,521,981. against $106,989,9-6 in September, 1901. and $115,901,722 in September. 1900, thi highest figure ever shown by Saptember exportation. Comparing present condi tions with those of earlier years, the figures for September, 1902 are 25 per cent in excess of those of September, 1S98, 50 per cent greater than those of September, 1890, more than double those of September, 1888, and nearly three times as great as those of September, 1885. This seems to indicate that the downward tendency in the export trad-i caused by the corn crop failure of last year has reached its lowest point and that the reverse movement toward nor mal conditions has begun. Following th failure of the corn crop last year the exports tended steadily downward. Beginning with October, 1901, in which the export figures were $145,000,000, the movement was steadily 'downward until they reached $88,000,000 in July of tha present year. In August the upward movement began, reaching $94,000,000, and in September $115,000,000, which is about $9,000,000 in excess of September of last year. This decrease In exports, as is well known, was due to the corn crop fail ure of last year and to the low price of cotton; and while the new corn crop has not yet begun to make its appear ance in the export figures of the bureau cf statistics, the movement of the new bs withdrawn. Before formulating their plans they will consult Major-General Miller and General Gobin, especially Gobin, who has been the chief advisor of Stone and Stewart since the first call for troops was made. The soldiers, particularly those who have been on duty since July, are anx ious to be sent home, so that they may resume their civic duties. Some have made repeated attempts to secure fur loughs, so as to attend to private mat ters, but in nearly every instance their requests have come principally from those regiments whose headquarters are located outside of the coal fields, and are composed of mechanics, farm ers and clerks. There have been very few requests frcm the men of the Ninth and Thir teenthregiments, both of which have their headquarters in the strike terri tory, and contain a large number of men who depend upon the coaT Industry for a living. Many of these men were thrown out of work by the strike, o OHIO DEMOCKATS AHE HAllD UP. McLean Men Not Enthusiastic for the Johnson State Ticket. Cincinnati, Ohio, October 19.
