Galveston. Oct. 2". Martin Jacoby,
while on his way from Europe to his
home in the City of Mexico, stopped
over in Galveston and was a visitor
at the Cotton Exchange. Mr. Jacobv
h:is lived in Mexico for 20 years and
is interested in the cotton business,
being one of the largest dealers i.i
that staple in our neighboring repub
lic. Mr. Jacoby said: -
"Mexico Is "growing some cottnri.
ad while this year the crop is in
splendid condition the acreage Is so
small that the total yield will not
cnount to over 100,000 bales, so little
as to hardly to count ir. the world's
supply. Being a country In which thr
manufacturing industry is growing
rapidly, and now manufacturing near
ly all the cotton cloth, yarns. etc..
that are used in the republic. w
have to purchase our cotton in th'?
United States, and the largest part
of what we purchase is grown in
Texas. I myself buy a great ileal of
cotton in Galveston and others from
Mexico are purchasers in ths mar
ket. "Altogether we have 146 cotton
mills in Mexico and though I cannot
tell ycu how many spindles are in
use. I can vouch for the fact that
many of them are as large as will be
found in this country. For instance
one mill at .Orizaba has an annual
consumption of 20,000 bales of cot
ton, one-fifth of the entire crop of
the country. Others come very near
that mark, and altogether they con
sume a great many times more tit
ton than is produced in Mexico.
"In the" manufacture of cloth of the
various prints, etc, we are proficient,
and turn out some of the finei-t work
that can be found anywhere. At Ihe
present time we find it necessary to
Import cotton goods from this coun

To Shake Off Coffee and Sickness.
It is ea-sy to shake off coffee no mat
ter how bad one miy crave it when
well made Postum Coffey is served in
its place.
"I have drank coffee for years and
r.lways experienced- trouble from it,"
says a Kansan. "I knew it was caus
ing my sickness as my doctor tc Id me
it war. and following the dwctoi's ad
vice I have repeatedly sworn ff. But
after a short time I could not st.tnd it
any longer and would go back to cof
fee and the old troubles. Never until
I tried Pcsuim :cbout a. year ago could
I shut o;T the c-olYee- for any length of
"At that time I was suffering
terribly from stomach trouble, nerv
ousness, headaches and all other ills
that go with a badly upset coffe stom
ach. I am a school teacher ajid if I
made my cotTee strong enough to
stimulate my stomach I could work
fine tcr a time but would collapse at
night. Gradually I failed to get stim
ulation from the coffee and my brain
seemed actually clogged up from
drinking coffee and my stomach was
in a wretched tate.
"A friend came to see me and ad
vised that I try' Postum and then went
crut and sot me a package, she wa.s so
certain it would help me. But my
landlady did not make It right sind I
was :-o disappointed with the taste
that I went back to coffee. My health
finally got so bad I was on the point
of giving" up school work. Then my
friend returned to see me one day and
asked about the Postum and when
the found out what the trouble was
she made it for me according to clirec
tons, boiling it full 13 minutes, and to
my surprise I found it delicious.
"Then I shut off the coffee end
ound it easy to do by drinking Post
um in its place which completely sat
isfied any coffee taste and I began
to feel better almost immediately. I
have used Postum ever since and my
stom-.ch has not given me a minute's
trouble. I am now strong again, my
nerves are steady a.nd normal and I
feel so fine I cannot begin to tey. you
how thankful I am.
"I persud.Hl mv brother who was
an Inveterate coffee drinker fcr years
to give up the coffee and try Postum
and he has had such grand results from
this that he says he will never go back
to coffee. When I went home on a visit
to my parents I persuaded them to
US3 Postum in the place of coffee and
the results have been that mother's
nervousness and sleeplessness have
disappeared." Name given by Po?tum

Unusual Senatorial Contest in Iowa Is
Decided. v
Pes Moines, Iowa, Oct. 23. One of
the most hotly contested senatorial
nominations ever known in Iowa was
settled yesterday by the state election
board when It was announced that
"neither of the candidates for nomina
tion was the legal candidate and that
another nomination must, be made by
the- same convention. This was in. the
Larkin-Soesby case-, from the Thirty
ninth district, comiMsed of Butler and
Biemer counties.
The election board, consisting of Sec
ret.!! y of State Mao-tin, Auditor of
Staite B. l- .Carroll and Attorney
Genes al '. VYX Mullan, reached its
conclusion only after weeks of work
'and evtn then Attorney Mullan eiht
not concur with his colleagues. He
held that the delegates in the conven
tion who claimed the nomination was
Illegal did not exercise their parlia
mentary rights by appealing from the
decision of the chair and thereby lost
tbpir right of appeal.
The law was interpreted by the
committee to mean that in such a
contingency as this the candidate
must be named by the same convention
composed of exactly the same dele
gates. Accordingly the matter gees
back to Butler and Bremer counties
to settle. It i.i expected both Larkin
and Foeshy will bo candidates for the
Everybody Satisfied With
President's Proclamation
The Settlers on the Reservation for
the First Time Cite a An Opportun
ity to Perfect Their Titles.
Special Agent Fink Mead, of the
Indian bureau and Special Agent
Forrest McKinley. of the general land
otnee, returned yesterday from Fort
M'Dowell, where they havo been en
gaged in adjusting matters between
the Indians and settlers: or. rather,
where Mr. Mead has been promulgat
ing the jroclamation of the president
throwing all of the abandoned mili
tary reservation, except some 8W
acres, open tc- homestead entry.
A great deal Of misinformation re
gardin2 the errand of Mr. Mend at
M'Cowell. has -appeared In the press
of Phoenix. It was repcrted even by
r.tme who were sutposed to be cogniz
ant of the situation that action ad
verse to the? settlers and in favor of
the Indians was about to be taken bv
him under direction from the depart-
I nent. It was said that there had been
a dtcision of the dispute which has
been going on between the Indians
and settlers at M'Dowell for the last
two years or ev?r since th?Indians
who were thr-re wer; permitted to
leave the Pan Carlos reservation.
The buffness of Mr. Mead had nothing
whatever to do with that dispute and
whatever action he took there is sat
isfactory to all parties concerned. In
fact all of them are in better shape
than they ever were before.
The proclamation, if th'? president
Is based upon chapter Sit of the IT.
S. revised statutes authorizing the
throwing open of abandoned military
or government reset vations to settle
ment, excepting those parts contain
ing government improvements. That
has been . done in the case cf th-
M'Dowell reservation.
On hlsr arrival at M'Dowell Mr.
Mead called a mass meeting- of the.
settle-rs; it was held at the school
house and It was attended by about
sixty persons, representing nearly all
the whites on the reservali-..i. He
read and explained the proclamation
and Invited expressions tt( opinien re
guarding it. Without exception, and al
most every settler in attendance had
romething to say, they were pleased
with it. They said they were glad that
a decision had been reached and they
were the more ple.tsed that they
could now proceed to perfect tbe'ir
titles to' the lands they occupied.
The reservation is four miles wide
and ten miles long. The ground con
taining the government improvements
embraces 300 acres. The improve
ments consist of the buildings of the
post, an irr:gating canal, the parad?
ground, etc. This part is set apart
for the Apache and Mohave Indians
who have- been in the vicinity of the
post and along the Verd? v.il'. y fcr
hthe last three or four yearn.
Eight or ten persons had settled
upon this land. They were regarded
as trespassers from the beginnng and
had been ordered off, once by th?
custodian and again by S. J. llolsin
ger. special agent cf the interior de
partment. They had made many Im
provements of considerable value.
They' will be permitted tc move what
ever Is movable and though - they are
legally trespassers an e-fftrt will be
made to induce the government to
pay them for such Improvements .n
are not movable. Governor P-rcdi1
will take the nratter up with the de
partment. Mr. M'Kinley, whose headquarters
are at Las Crucss, N. M.. will estab
lish temporary headquarters at
M'Dowell r.ext Monday and will re
ceive applications for homestead en
lri?s. Preference will be given to
thce settlers who were upan th
Inr.d previous to September 15. the
date of the presidential proclamation.
The temporary headquarters wili
save the settlers the trouble of goinrj
to Tucson, for the land lies in. the
Tuoon district. So in effect there will
he In this territory until all the app'.i
catic. ;is at M'Dowell are in. three
land offices AIL the applications will
be forwarded to Tucson.
The adjustment of this matter has
brrn accomplished ".ithor;t thr slight
est friction. Mr. Mead left this
morning for Wiatdrington.
Mr. Heirize's Accusation
Against the Amalgamated
He Says That the Montana Decision
lias Been Used as a Pretext For
Shutting' Down.
P.ulte. Mont.. Oct. 23. F. Augustus
Heinze, ;f the Montana Ore Purchasing-
company, today published a state
ment, giving his side of the shut-down
cf the Amalgamated Copper company
properties. He said It was a move on
the- part of the Wall street specula
tors .among them H. II. Rogers of
the Amalgamated Copper company to
control llw? stock manipulation and
was not directly caused by the in
junction yesterday by Judge Clan'-y.
He also said that Judge Clancy's de
cision yesterday was in Nr.s with the
Northern Securities decision.
President Wm.; Scallon, of the Ana
conda Copper company, this afternoon
made a statement in answer to Mr.
Heinle, in which he said: "To lawyers
and lavme.i alike who happen to b?
acquainted, with the Northern S?euri
tics case to which Mr.- Heinze refers,
his assertion that the provisions of
Judge Clancy's decision are "very
nearly identiial" with the order issued
by the circuit court of appeals in the
merger case, indicates either gross ig
norance on Mr. Heinze's part, or a
desire to prevert the facta.- In the
Northern Securities case th? crder cli
ivcted the re-transfer of the stock to
its original owners and recognized the
property rights of the Northern Se
curities comrany.
Judge Clancy's decision, on the con
trary, so far as it goes, declares that
the adverse party has no rights what
ever", prohibits any transfers and
simply p rope-sea to wipe out the pro
perly rights."
Continuing Mr. Scallan said thre
was no truth in the statement that
.Mr. Rogers, president-of th? Amalga
mated company, ordered ihe shut
down to effect the "stock market.

A Union Man Wants Compensation
for Occupying the Ball Fen.
Colorado Snvir.ss, Colo.. Oct. 23. A
Fpt-'Cial to ihe Gazette from Cripple
Creek says:
C. J. Kennlscn today filed suit in
the district court against Governor
Jam;s H. Pea body. General Sherman
Rrll. General John Chase and Major
T. C. McClcllan for $100,000 damages.
The complaint recites that on Octo
ber 18. the plaintiff was thrown in
the bull pen at Camp Goldfield and
confined against his wishes and was
compelled to sleep cn the bare ground
with a guard constantly watching
him; that the said arrest end Im
prisonment was false, that he was al
so deprived of his liberty which
greaily humiliated him in mind and he
also suffered exposure.
W. F. DaviS. another prominent
union man who was confined at the
same time also brings suit for an
equal amount.
His complaint is virtually th? same
as Kennlson's.
Traders Unable to Understand Condi
tions Following Bad Weather.
I New York Oct. 23. Fcr a time last
I wee!; ;i downward tendency prevailed
in all grain markets. In wheat there
w-;ls a. rapifl recovery, but corn was de
' prosed practically all the we;lv
I The initial weakness was ascribed to
I unloading by discouraged holders,
who Locarno anxious to throw over
their holdings sifter the issuance of the
I crop report. This statement proved to
' b much 'more favorable than was ex
' ected.
j Mauv cnae-rvativo and v.-ell-inforii-.e 1
I trader re inclined to discredit the
: report, which was only natural in view
I of the highly unfavorable climatic con
ditions th;it had existed.
The early selling of wheat was par.:y
stimulated by the discouraging trend of
cable advices. Kuropean markets be!::;r
! depressed by the much larger world's
shipments than expected,. embraoin,r
J heavy contributions from Russia, .he
Danube ar.d India. As a result, the ex
port demand for our wheat has been
decidedly "small.
The subsequent sharp rally in wheat
was r. ttributable to sjirited speculative
buying, prompted in part by disap
pointing shipments. Farmers have
parted with their whe.it slowly. r.uyi;j
was also accelerated by reports of rain
utnl frost in Argentina and by fear of
war between Russia and Japan.

The Principal Business on the StocK
Marhet Yesterday.
New York, Oct. 23. Amalgamated
CopKr absorbed an overwhelming
proportion of today's business in the
stock , market. For a good d?al of th
time the dealings in this stock were
larger than all others combined,
and it comprised about one-third of
the i'ggregnte sales of the day. Th
day's tcrtal showed a considerable
shrinkage in the recent average, and
only a negative significance could be
drawn from the day's market. On this
basis of interpretation the; market
must be said to have offered a good
resistance to the day's disturbing
factors as has been the case during
the whole of the week.
