There is little doubt that the l-ath list will total 138 men. It is pos sible that the exact number may never be known. Two of those whose bodies have been recovered had been suffocat ed. This afternoon the coroner held a meeting to organize a jury, but ad journed until all the bodies have been taken out of the mine. Early today a j nun blaze broke out in the mine, but it was extinguished before any damage v.:is dove.

General It is Believed That the Value of the Service Would Be Increased by a System of Transportation of Merchan cise by Mail. Washington, Nov. 29. Touching the heart of agricultural communities in every state of the union, the annual report of Fourth Assistant Postmaster General P. V. De Graw. made public tonight, announces increased useful ness of the rural free delivery service and the unprecedented bringing of the work of the bureau up o date and recommends rural delivery of pack ages of eleven pounds maximum at a special postage and the uniforming of rural carriers. The package provision suggested requires congressional leg islation and is designed to be effective between the distributing postoffice and the patrons of any rural route emanating from such postoffice. Such a service, according to the re port would benefit alike the rural de livery patrons and local merchants without injuring or competing with any other service. "It can be given." adds Mr. De Graw, "with the facilities now employed and would materially increase the revenues of the depart ment. A special reduced rate of pos tage for merchandise carried only by rural carriers would unquestionably be of material value to the retail mer chants on rural routes and at rural de livery distributing centers as well as n ha nee the !r.:!c. nee of the raj l! service in making life in the country more attractive." Rural carriers at present are not permitted to carry for hire anv mat ter or package that Is mailable, but congress Increased the salaries of the caTiers. The demand for a package service by them, fostered in the first years of rural free delivery, still exists. It should be met, according to Mr. De Graw, not in the old way, which permitted the use of the government's agency for private gain, but by the establishment of a system for the car riage of merchandise by rural carriers at such rates as v ill be a fair com pensation for the service performed, the revenues to be credited to the postal receipts. patrons and mer--.' .":.ts, he adds, desire to have small icuk.ig-s delivered by rural carriers, 1.-'. t i.; not vay the present fourth ye r :e r h is prohibitive as ap ; e-d to 'hi1- e ass of service.

Of these roads 35,000 miles are ma cadum, the remainder being earth, sand or gravel. Since the service was rirst established $70,632,162 has been expended on roads traversed by rural carriers. Road officials and patrons are notified wherever repairs are nec essary on rural routes. More work has been done on such public high ways and more expenditures made in their improvement during, the past year than in any previous year in the history of rural delivery and the of ficial reports received clmirly idicate that interest in road improvement Is being generally manifested throughout the country. The estimate of appropriations nec essary for this service for tho next i fiscal year, as submitted by Assistant Postmaster General De Graw is 36,- 246,000 an increase of $673,000 over the current appropriation. Of this esti mate $34,053,159 is for continuing the service on 39,277 routes in operation on June 30 last, $626,841 for continu ing the service on 723 routes which it is estimated will be established dur inging the current fiscal year at an estimated averatle salary for carriers of $X67 per annum. $179,000 to inaugu rate new service during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1910, $1,360,000 to pay substitutes for 39.63$ carriers on vacation, at an estimated average rate f $367 per annum less six per cent deducted on account of carriers not In service twelve months, $12,000 to pay clerks iTfeharge of stations of rural delivery service, and $15,000 to pay tolls and ferryage charged for carriers who traverse toll roads or turnpikes or cross streams over toll bridges or ferrys. During the past year there were 1.672 new routes established, 17 routes discontinued prior thereto were reestablished and 140, routes discon tinued, leaving net increase in numtier 1,549. During the year 195S postoffices were discontinued and the patrons j countries has increased less than 60 per rendered service by rural carriers. Onctnt- only a little more than 10 per cent of the rural routes the quantity of mail handled was less than 9000 pieces per quarter which heretofore has been considered a fair average for a stand ard route. Included in this number are 659 tri-weekly routes and a num ber of short length routes serving re stricted territories. The report recommends legislation by congress which will permit the adoption of an Improved method of disposing of undeliverable articles of mail by sale, so as to eliminate as far as practicable the objectionable lottery features involved in carrying out the existing law on the subject. In the dead letter office during the year there were received 13.145,172 pieces of mail, j and there were returned to senders 7.- 202. 64 letters and rircels. 07 almW two million more than in the previous year. On the last day of the fiscal year every piece of mail matter receiv ed had been opened and treated, an unprecedented condition In the work of the division. The report recommends Increasing the number of positions in the higher grades of clerkships, with corresiond Ing decrease in lower grades.

Washington, Nov. 29 Trade of the United States with its noncontiguous territories will approximate no mil lion dollars In the year which ends with next month. Ten years ago the trade with the same territories amounted to approximately 60 million dollars, the increase during the decade having thus been nearly 200 per cent. During the same period the trade with foreign The estimate of a grand total of 170 millions as the value of the commerce between the United and its noncontig uous territories is based upon ten months' returns Just compiled by the Bureau of Statistics of the Department of Commerce and Lubor, which show Si million dollars in value of shipments to the United States from those terri tories and 53 million dollars' value of shipments from the United States to those territoriesffiile for the single month of OctuBer, the latest available record, the shipments to the United states amounted to 11 '4 million dollars and from the United States to the ter- ritories in question over 6 millions, Curiously, one of the smallest of these noncontiguous territories, both as to population and area, furnishes the largt-s amopnt of trade. Of th. 82 million dollars' worth of merchandise reaching the United States from its four principal noncontiguous territories Porto Rico, Hawaii, the Philippine Islands, and Alaska 40ii million dol lars' worth, or practically one-half of the total, was from Hawaii; 22 2-3 million dollars' worth from Porto Rico; 10 4 millions from Alaska, and 8 mil lions from the Philippine Island, these figures being, as above indicated, for the ten months ending with October, 19'8. Of the shipments from the Unit ed States to those territories, Porto Ri co receives a larger amount than any other of the group, the value of the merchandise sent from the United States to Porto Rico in the ten months being, in round terms, 18 million dol- Herjlars; to Alaska, practically 14 millions; ti) Hawaii, l' millions, and to the Philippines, 8 millions.

What are the articles forming this trade of 170 million dollars per annum between the United States and its non contiguous territories? In the case' of Porto Rico the merchandise sent to the United States is chiefly sugar, to bacco, and fruits; and the merchan dise sent from the United States In exchange is chiefly rice, meats, bread- stuffs, cotton goods, manufactures of iron and steel, and miscellaneous ar ticles. From the Hawaiian Islands the shipments to the United States are chiefly sugar, and the merchandise sent to those islands in exchange is chiefly breadstjffs, meats, iron and steel man ufactures, cotton cloth, mineral oils, manufactures o tobacco and manu factures of wood. From the Philip pines the shipments to the United States are chiefly hemp and sugar, the value of the hemp being far In excess of that of the sugar while the merchan dise sent to the Philippines in exchange includes manufactures of iron and steel cottons, breadstuffs, and mineral oils. From Alaska the principal mercahndise sent to the United States is salmon. copper, and furs, and the merchandise sent from the United States is manu factures of cotton, woolen goods, iron. and steel manufactures, mineral oils, breadstuffs, meats, tobacco manufac tures, and wines, liquors, and spirits. o A IN CENTRAL AMERICA General Herrera Has Returned From His Exile in Europe.
