AN DUR DEALINGS liflTH FRIGE TradsHasPiGketfUp Remark- in a Year THE RETURN OE LUXURIES After the Period of Depres sion and the Greater De mand For Manufacturers' Materials are Responsible For Improved Trade. Washington, May 23. Imports into tiie United States from France show an increase of 60 per cent in the months of February and March, while those from all Europe and from all tli world during that time show in each case a gain of but about 45 per cent. The total value of imports from France in February. 1909, as shown by the records of the bureau of statistics, of the department of commerce ami labor was 10 million dollars, ..gainst 6 millions in Febru ary of the preceding year; and in March. 1909, 11 1-3 millions, against u millions in March of the preced ing year. This large increase in the importa tions from France is due in part to increased requirements for manufac turers' materials, in part to increased purchases of luxuries by the'people of the United States, and probably in' some cases to anticipated increases in rates of duty on certain classes of articles coming from that country, especially luxuries. f the imports into the United States from France, a very large share is composed of articles usually class ed as luxuries. Of diamonds, for in stance, the imports from France in March, 199, amounted to $591,717, against $51,224 in March of last year, being thus more than ten times as great In value in March, 1909, as in March, llM'S; of other precious stones, MM. 943, against 98,424 in March of last year; of cotton laces, edgings, embroideries, etc.,- $1,054,293, against $5.714 in March, 1908; of silk man ufactures, the total value imported from France in March of the prent year was $1,907,497. against $1,173,1153 in the corresponding month in 19S; of champagne, $3S7.&92, against $2u3. 523 in March of last year; gloves (of kid or other leather), $333, 3bt;, against $278,914 in the same month of last year; gout skins. $104,006, against $84,360 in March, 1908; olive oil, $140,657, against $84,106 in March, 1908. Trade of the United States with France shows a steady growth both on the import and export sides. Our own figures of that trade show larger exports to France in 1908 than in any earlier year, and larger imports from France than in any earlier year ex cept 1906 and 1907. The total value of domestic merchandise exported from the United States to France in the fiscal year 190S was 114 million dollars, against 111 million dollars in 1907: while in no earlier year had the value of domestic exports to that country crossed the ion million dollar line. On the import side the total never crossed the 100 million dollar line until 1906. when the im ports from France amounted to 108 million dollars; 19o7, 128 millions and 19HS. 10j millions. While the trade between France and the United States has not grown with as great rapidity as is the case with certain other countries, there has been a steady upward trend. Hie fig ures of both imports and exports, as already indicated, now exceeding 100 million dollars, thus being about double those of twenty years earlier. That the growth in exports to that country has not been as great as to other countries is quite apparent from the figure3 of the bureau of I Buy Your Fruit Jars LIDS AND RUBBER JELLY GLASSES and vour Fruits and X t T Sugar for canning, at KROUSKOP'Sf 5 POINTS GROCERY.

J to France in 190S were but a little more than twice as great as in 1890, while to Germany they were more statistics, which show that exports than three times as great as in 1890, and to Italy four times as great as in that year. Notwithstanding the comparatively slow growth of our exports to France, a study of the official figures of that country shows that merchandise from the" United States forms a steadily increasing share of her total imports. In the five years ending with 1879 merchandise from the United States formed 9.59 per cent of the imports of France; in the five years ending with 1884, 9.77 per cent: in the five years ending with 1894, 9.39 per cent: in the five years ending with 1899, 10.19 per cent; in the five years ending with 1904, 10.6 per cent; and in the four years ending with 1908, 11.06 per cent. On the other hand, the share which merchandise from France forms of the Imports into the United States has somewhat declined, being 11.58 per cent In the five years ending with 1884; 9.76 per cent in the quinquennium ending with 1889; 8.7 per cent in the five years ending with 1894; 8.64 per cent in the five years ending with 1899; 8.77 per cent in the quinquennium ending with 1904; and 8.61 per cent in the four years ending with 1908. The principal imports into the United States from France are man ufactures and luxuries. Diamonds in the fiscal year 1908 were imported from France to a value of about $3, 500.000; feathers, flowers, etc, natural and artificial, $4,500,000; laces, edg ings, embroideries, etc, $9,000,000; art works, $2,500,000; automobiles, $2,000, 0i0: silk clothing and dress goods, $5,750,0000; silk laces, embroideries and ribbons, $5,000,000: champagnes, $4,750,000; other wines, $1,000,000; dis tilled spirits, $1,750,0000; gloves $3, 250,0000: woolen dress goods, $3,000, 000. and olive oil, $1,250,0000; while among the article, for use in manu facturing are hides and skins, $4,750, 000: raw silk. $1,500,000; india rubbes, $1,000,000; argols, or wines lees, $1, OoO.OiiO, and glycerine, $1,000,000.

San Francisco, May 23. Revelations of alleged conspiracies in the San Francisco bribery graft cases, plots, counter plots, double dealing, and the "diamond-cut-diamond" methods oftho opposing detectives, in obtaining evi dence, that read like a page from "Old Sleuth" or "Nick Carter" and many other sensational charges, which formed the chapter last week of the trial of Patrick Calhoun, gave prom ise of still further sensations when the case is resumed tomorrow morn ing. The trial which is nearing the sixth month and has been productive of more sensational testimony than any preceding graft case, began in the fall of 1906 and promises to be come the longest criminal trial in the history of the west, perhaps the long est in the United States. When the trial is resumed tomor row Judge Lawlor will be called upon to decide whether or not he has au thority, in defiance of two restraining orders of other courts of similar jurisdiction to break the seals of a package alleged to contain documents stolen from Detective W.

In the event that Judge Lawlor decides in favor of the prosecution and orders the packages opened. Helms and other detectives will be called to identify their contents. HIT A TREE. An Automobile Making a Mile a Mi'nute. San Jose, May 23. Fred Wiseman and M. Peters, driving a Stoddard- Dayton automobile at the rate of six ty miles an hour in an attempt to break the round-the-bay reoord. lost control of the steering gear on North A The Republican yesterday morning established a new high advertising rec ord 2,470 inches, or 123 "4 columns, as against its previous high record of 2,387 inches a week ago yesterday. It will be observed that there was much less foreign matter than usual It was practically all home advertising. There was not an inch or a line of unpaid matter in the mass. No double or single page of dead-horse railroad advertising, and no exchange adver tising nothing free. The Republican is making these showings from time to time partly to give expression to gratification 'at its growth but more espiTially to register the advancement of the community which the growth of this paper accu rately reflects. These showings are not made to give the public a false idea of the prosperity of The Republi can, and, in doing so, to include In the exhibits pages of dead-head advertis ing. That would do The Republican no good, and, beside, the price of print paper is too high to be wasted in that manner. This paper is as economical of its space as possible. It uses only as much of it as the advertising needs of its patrons compel. There are several reasons why these needs are becoming more and more in sistent. One general one is the grow ing recognition of the general superi ority of the morning paper, a fact which is coming to be universally ad mitted. There are many reasons for its superiority both as purveyor of news and as an advertising medium. In the first place. It has a longer period of circulation on the street and In homes by two hours daily, and is, therefore, more thoroughly read and digested. Another reason is that evenings are usually devoted to pleasure and prep aration for it, so that there Is time merely to glance at the evening paper. A few years ago there were many large evening papers in the country, and excellent papers, too. But that was before advertisers were so dis criminating as they have since become before they weighed circumstances, conditions and values as they do now.

Augustus Bensrud will serVe from one to four teen years in the penitentiary at Walla Walla for dealing three aces and a pair of kings to Gustaf BJorklund, while for himself he pinched a flush, at the same time handing Ole Olson, his ac complice, four deuces from a cold deck. Judge J. Stanley Webster, who passed sentence on Bensrud, has granted a stay for Olson, as his counsel will ap ply for a new trial or appeal to the supreme court. The game started with one-dollar stakes, at which the "ten derfoot" won nine of ten hands. Then it was proposed by Olson to take all the money unless Bjorklund covered the raise. Bjorklund "skinned" his hand, which was made up of two aces, a pair of kings and a queen. The rest is the old, old story, e drew one card and filled a full hand w'th another ace. His hand looked good, and he plunged for $50 and lost. o MOTOR CYCLE RECORDS THREE NEW ONES Resulting from the Races at Los An geles Yesterday. Los Angeles, May 23. Three world's motor-cycle records were broken today. The eight-mile record, made by E. Lingenfelder, of Chicago, time, 6:20, was n seconds faster than the previous record, held by Jake DeRosier. The ' professional twenty-five-mile race was taken br Lingenfelder in 24:10, although he was forced to stop three minutes to repair his machine. The former record was held by A. Mitchell, of New Orleans, 25:07. The amateur ten-mile race was taken by A. Ward, of this city; time, 8:14. The previous record was 8:21 4-5. Now, the evening paper has fallen to the rear rank, until there are very few- important ones. The Kansas City Star is by far the most conspicuous of the list." Many papers which had evening edi tions have dropped them and are now concentrating their energies in the morning editions. The following are the cities in which the morning paper leads: New York, Philadelphia, Bos ton, Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburg, Indianapolis. Cincinnati, St. Louis, Chi cago, New Orleans, Memphis, Cleve land, Detroit, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Denver, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Seattle, Tacoma and Buffalo. The list might be extended until it should make almost a complete directory of the cit ies of the United States. In addition to being a morning paper. The Republican possesses many local advantages. It is enabled by the rural routes to reach every point in the val ley where people live by two o'clock in the afternoon of the day of publi cation. It reaches Roosevelt by means of the mail and its own conveyance on the same day. ' It gets out of the valley both north and south in the morning, and is read in almost every town and camp in Arizona on the day !t is published. This is an advantage denied the even ing papers of Phoenix. Another dis tinct advantage to advertisers. Is found in the fact that since most visitors ar rive on the morning trains. The Re publican is the first paper they see. Then too. The Republican's complete telegraphic service affords to valley readers about the only knowledge of what is going on in the world outside. Late in the afternoon the Tucson pa pers of that morning come, and the following day the Bisbee, El Paso and Los Angeles papers arrive with tele graphic news already old to Republi can readers. These conditions and advantages and the quickness of lcoal merchants to grasp thm, are responsible for the size of The Republican and for its volume of advertising, two features which are unequalled in any paper published "in any town of less than twice the size of phoenix, in the whole United States. NOT A GLUE TO ion Pacific GUTTED MAIL POUCHES Alone Show the Direction: in Which the Robbers Fled. They Were Probably Di rected in the Enterprise by a Signal Fire. Omaha, May 23. Although the po lice department of this city and the sheriff had large forces scouring the country in the vicinity of the scene of the holdup on the Union Pacific last night, little progress was made toward arresting the robbers. Two empty iouehes taken from the train were found some distance. from where the robbery occurred. They were cut open and their contents re moved. It is believed that the robbers rode in an automobile to the scene of the hold-up. It has been learned that a fire was burning on a bank near where the robbery' occurred, believed to have been "Used as a signal for the robbers on the train in order that they might know where to begin operations.

Lost Yesterday's Game by Score of 12 to 8 LED WITH A HOME Steam Was all Spent in the First Dash- The Morning Weather too Cold For Work and Double Header Pro gram Was Abandoned. Prescott, May 23. (Special.) Tho hopeful expectations of the Salt River valle.vs, fans were not disappointed to day, as the first game played here was a victory for the lads from the valley. The score was twelve to eight, the game being won in the ninth inning. The original program of a double header was not carried out as the weather in the mile-high altitude was too cold to permit a ball game being played with any comfort in the morning. The game was pitched by Cuber for the Phoenix team and his work was up to tho standard which he has maintained throughout the season thus far. Mor ris behind the bat appeared in the best form that he has yet shown this season. The game was witnessed by a big crowd and a large crowd is expected at the game tomorrow as a number of the sporting fratrnity are coming In from the mines for miles around to witness the bouts be tween Kilrain and Sullivan, which will be given before the Prescott Athletic club tomorrow night. It seems to be the regular order for the team from' Phoenix to leave the chestnuts in the fire until the last inning and then to rake them safely out after giving all of their followers a scare. Following such a precedent, which they established in their last game with Tucson, the val ley team made a poor start, letting the Prescott bunch take the lead in the opening Innings. To add to the discouraging circumstances the first man up ' for the mountaineers led off with a home run over the fence, a thing which would have taken the heart out of most pitchers with no more age or experience than Cuber. But the Mesa boy- pitched stronger as the game continued and in the latter innings was practically unhit able. Long hits were frequent in the game. Rudolph. Warner, Clow and Spaulding made hits good for two sacks, while Warner and Whitmer each plugged out a three-bagger. On the Prescott side Miller made a home run and Mitchell got a long hit that was good for three bags. The score R- H. E.
