THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, SEPTEMBER 7, 1898.
G THE PHILIPPINE TRADE. It May Be Worth Much to Un cle Sam. THE BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, HU-linens of the Country-How Fpain Hat Killed Enterprise Some Fields In Vhlcli Enterprising Ainrricmm May Suc ceed If Good Government Comes. I. The bufcinrss opportunities in the Philippine islmids depend altogether npou tho ilif- oitiou to bo made of tho country by the fpiiuisu-Anierirnn com mission. If the place in remauded to its former owners, they will be few mid poor, their profits going to the ofiiciuls, politicians and lawyers and not to tho merchant and manufacturer. If a pro tectorate he established, the opportuni ties will be rich and quite numerous. If the stars aud stripes are to remain Am mmmm WHAT A TYPHOON ONCK DID TO MANILA. permanently, the. Philippines will be a better field for many enterprising Ameri cans than the United States. Even un der the crushing rule of Spain Ameri cans and English have been commer cially successful in many instances. An American house introduced tho tele phone aud electric lighting system of Manila. A British coupany has built aud ' operates a short railway from Manila toward Dagupan, the eventual terminus of the route. The China aud Manila Steamship company is a British corporation, as are its two rivals, the China Navigation Company, limited, and the Red Funnel (or Jardine, Math eson & Co. ) line. American interests in the islands in clude marine, fire and life insurance companies, ropemakiug, sugar refining and tobacco a practically insignificant list. One American mercantile house, Warner, Blodgett & Co., held a leading place in the far east, but it was impov erished and finally ruined by tho exac tions and extortions of the officials. American dentists frequently visit Ma nila and other Philippine cities and do a lucrative business, but all the profit is taken by the fees and imposts re quired by the government. Other fields which Americans have occupied successfully are rice milling, iron coustiuction, ice machinery, drugs and chemicals, cotton goods, steam ma chinery and electrical engineering. Few of these are conducted on a largo scale. The entira business in these lines of the 10,000,000 or 12,000,000 inhabitants of the islands is less than that of an active city liko Cleveland, Atlanta or Denver. Under a good govorumeut tho open ings are numberless. Mining engineers, prospectors, mine superintendents, miuo foremen, assayers and geologists may be in largo demand. The average Spaniard knows little of these callings aud cares less. Even at home half of the rich inines are under foreign control or su pervision. Tho attitude of the Spanish mind toward practical scieuco is well shown in the curriculum of the Manila college, where the course comprises physics, chemistry, metaphysics, theol ogy, rhetoric, poetry, arithmetio and "bookkeeping. There is an ever increasing domand for coal in the far east, and tho coal beds of Zebu and Mindanao are destined to play nn important part in future commerce. They contain anthracite, Bemibituminous and lignite, and there fore appeal to coal experts from eastern Pennsylvania as well as those from tho larger coal basins of our land, retro leum experts, from producers and well drillers to refiners and chemists, may also find good employment. At present the islands import their kerosene from the United States, Russia and Sumatra. The trado is small, owing to the duty and other taxes, but is steadily increas ing. The natives use vegetable oils for their lamps, aud tho cheapest of these costs far more and gives less light than mineral oil. With tho cheap labor of the Philippines it should be easy to turn out kerosene at a lower cost than is done in the United States. Tho market for kerosene in the extreme orient is al most unlimited, China and Japan using millions of gallons annually and in creasing their consumption every year. There will be a valuable opportunity for steam or electrical transportation if the islands get good government. The country is fabulously rich, but almost nothing has been done by the adminis tration to facilitate the movement of crops and other products. There are a few good roads near Manila. All tho rest are cow paths or trails. Travel is done on horseback and goods are carried by buffalo carts or pack trains. Tho ex isting road shows what a harvest thoro is for good railways and trolley roads. Since it started it has never paid a smaller dividend than 10 per cent. Roughly speaking, the country is a Bcrios of long valleys separated by lines of hills or mountains. There are few marshes and enough forests to supply ties for the entire road as it is con structed. Labor is cheap, costing 10 cents a day. A native cannot do as much work as an Amorlcan, the ratio being one to two. It is cloar that tho cost of railway construction will be email and that it will be possible to build and operate trolley roads at a profit when it could not be done at home. There is a flue flold for steam launches, river and lake steamers and small coasters. The Malays love to travel, and even under Spanish rule make a good business for the capitalists and tho friars who conduct tho river and coasting trade. Scientific farming offers much to men who love the soil. The ordinary steel plow is unknown to niuo-teuths of tho Philippines. So we the mower, harvester, cultivator, horse rako and f veu tho scythe. Tho only good farm ing is done by a few Chinese and half caste', but even here it is on a fcuall eulo. The iron industry will be remunera tive. In a land of typhoons and earth quakes iron and steel houso construc tion will in tho course of time supersede all others. The Malays take kindly to the forge and foundry, and where theso exist prove able and faithful workmen. In textiles there ought to bo a good trade with Uncle Sam. Whet there is today is largely Spanish through heavy discriminating duties. Of tho foreign goods imported the largest part is made from American cotton and conies from England. Next come tho German goods, which are also niado of American cot tons, then como Japanese goods, and last tho goods of the United States. With a free, open market aud our own business men on hand we certainly would soon have a controlling voice in the trade. Excellent investments, it is believed by the sanguine, will be sugar refineries, ropewalks, fruit canneries, jelly and preserve factories, ice plants, rug, car pet and matting works, graving docks, boiler shops, steam marble works and steam or electric sawmills. Millions of pounds of raw sugar are exported an nuallv to Hongkong, Shanghai, Tien tsin, Nagasaki, Kobe, Osaka aud Yoko hama, aud there refined, when the lat ter work could be dono near tho planta tions. At Hongkong there are the Luzon Sugar Refining company and tho China Sugar Refining company, two million aire institutions. They pay handsome dividends and numerous large salaries, yet all of this conies out of the Philip pine sugar which they use. With a just government the refineries would be in tho Philippines, where they would pay a higher profit. The same state of affairs marks the bemp and cordage industry. The Span iards themselves, much more so the foreigners, do not dare to go into cord age making on a largo scalo for foar of the officials. The hemp goes to Hong kong, Australia, Europe and America and is there made into rope, twine and incidentally paper. The packing, com pressing, freight, insurance and double handling are so expensive that thoy make possible a wide margin of profit to a manufacturer doing business on the islands. In canning nothing has been done, yet there is as good an opportunity there as at homo. Game and venison are plentiful aud soil for one-fifth of what tbev do here. Fish, prawns, tur tles and edible lizards may be purchased as low as a cent a pound. Tropical fruits abound and are almost given away. Above all is the king of fruits, tho Manila mango, which if tinned would find a ready market in every part of the world. The Chinese aud Japanese have learned to can foods in tho last doc ado, and aro now reaping a rich profit. Money may bo made in cheap and serviceable kerosene lamps, Ansonia clocks, Waterbury watches, electric an nunciators, hand sewing machines, cheap fowling pieces, low priced spec tacles and eyeglasses, barbed wire, tho distillation of essential oils and in all preparations which will kill vormin, rats aud mice. Business men should boar in mind, however, that our fashions and tastes are not those of the islanders. Ours may bo better aud generally are better, but that does not alter the case. Thoy AN ACT OF TUMOUR SYMPATHY. ' Which Sent One Young Man to Cuba with a Milliter Heart. A recent traveller to Spain, writing In Blackwood's Magazine, describes a touching scene witnessed at the de parture of a regiment for Cuba. All flay long there had been heard the measured tread of soldiers, marching through the streets; all day long gaily bedecked boats had been passing to and from the vessel that was to take them to Havana. The twilight had begun to deepen when the correspondent saw "a start ling and pretty sight" the Impetuous action of a portly, good-looking and well-dressed lady, who noticed a young soldier walking dejectedly along down the pier in his travelling gray, with a knapsack strapped ever his shoulders. All the rest of the men had friends, their novlas, mothers, relatives, and made the usual gallant effort to look slated and full of hope. This lad had oo one, and it might be devined that he was carrying a desolate heart over seas. The handsome woman burst from her group of friends, took the boy's hand and said; "My son has already gone to Cuba. He is in the regiment Df Andalusia and sailed two months ago. You may meet him, Pepe G.; take this kiss to him." She leaned and , kissed his cheek. An English boy would have shown awkwardness, but these graceful Southerners are never at a loss for a pretty gesture and a prettier word. The boy flushed with pleasure, ana still holding the lady's hand, said, with quite a natural gallantry, without imirk or silly smile. "And may I not take one for myself as well, Senora?" The lady reddened, laughed a little nervously, and bent and kissed him again, to the frantic applause of sold iers and civilians, while the boy walk ed wi braced and happy. A Conscientious Doctor. A good true story is told of a San Francisco woman and a doctor with a sonscience. The doctor performed a successful operation for a rich woman, ind when asked for his bill, presented one for $50. The lady smiled and said, 'Do you consider that a reasonable :harge, considering my clrcumstan ;es?" The doctor replied: "That is my charge for that operation; your sircumstancea have nothing to do with It" The lady drew a check for $500, ind presented it to him. He handed it teck, saying: "I cannot accept this. My charge for that operation is $50." Very well," the lady replied. "Keep the check, and put the balance to my jredit." Some months after, she re teived a lengthy itemized bill, upon which were entered charges for treat ment of various kinds, rendered to all sorts of odds and ends of humanity, male and female, black and white, who had been mended at her expense. She was so delighted at it that she im mediately placed another check for ,500 to her credit on the same terms, ind it is now being earned In the same way. JEWELRY AT THE MINT. People Depoi.it It to bu Melted and Turn ed Into Legal Tender. Shortly after the holiday season the mint Is overburdened with deposits of gold jewelry for melting, brought by persons unablo to keep the valuable trinkets or Jewelers disposing of pat terns out of date. From 1873 down to last year the amount of money paid out by the gov ernment for old gold and plate annu ally has increased steadily. The high water mark was reached in 1S91, when the government paid out for plate and jewelry $4,035,710. In 1S73 the amount was $771,218, atd It reached the million mark in 1880, the two-million mark in 1886, and the three-million mark in 1889. Except for the year 1891, when it went to four millions, it was be tween three and four million dollars until last year, when it fell to $2,810, 284. The Philadelphia mint melts nine-tenths of the plate and jewelry presented to the government. Pay ment is generally made in gold when the jewelry is of that metal. Ziegler Jones, of the weighing de partment of the mint, said that the principal metal received was gold, as the mint did not recoin silver, but Blmply refined it 999-1000ths fine. "There are," he said, "many people who deposit jewelry at the mint which Is very valuable, but out of style. Many of them are stirred up In the matter by reading of robberies and realize that the keeping of old jewelry is a tempta tion for servants and sneak thieves. Dnly this morning a poor Russian left a heavy gold watch to he melted. It was given him for bravery in his na tive army. The net amount turned over to the astonished foreigner was (60. "By far the greatest amount of metal Is sent to the mint from jewelers, den tists and assayers. As a rule, we do not accept a deposit which will net in the essay under $100. The hard times have a very great Influence on the amount of jewelry received from pri vate Individuals." Philadelphia Times. Altogether too Practical.

After requesting an sarly answer, lie added: 'Please write briefly, to the point, and upon but one side of the paper.

BTBEET Itf MANILA'S NATIVE QUARTER. will not buy what we liko, but what they like. Any merchant sending out noods which are popular nt home but different from those in use in tho Phil ippiuos will fiud his consignments a dead loss. The only safe rule is to swid out a quick wittod, clear scoiiig sales man to find out exactly what the new market dosires and then to niako the goods accordingly. Where a merchant cannot afford this expense he should join in with a number of others who will share tho cost with him. Nor must any ambitious man of affairs cxpeet im mediate success. Excepting the gold mines, where a fortune may be found in an hour, it will bo Blower gotting ahead at first than at houif). Tho warm, balmy climate is enervating aud tends to making men indolent. Besides this throe centuries of Spanish rulo havo trained the population to boliove in tho doctrine of "niauana" (tomorrow) There was the same trouble in Texas at its annexation, aud it took five years to put a more intense vitality into its peo pie. It will tako as long to infuse mod em energy into the Philippine charao ter, but tho game is worth much more than tho candle. The island common wealth is ono of the richest on the earth, and its millions may make ono of tho greatest markets for the American merchant, manufacturer and man of enterprise if the government of the United States at the conclusion of the negotiations with Spain decides to re main in praotical control of a part or the whole of the territory couquored by Roar Admiral George Dowey aud Major Oeneral Wesley Merritt.

ONE HORSE'S APPETITE. rbe Old Fellow Possessed a Phenomenal Capacity. "An old horse with an inordinate ap petite is one of the curiosities I found on a recent trip to Eastern Kentucky," said Col. Andrew Yates, the other day. 'This ancient animal was once ridden by a mail rider over In West Vir ginia and had to go In a jog from day light till after dusk each day, except Sunday. But after long service 'old Bawley' was traded off to a farmer liv ing over on the Kentucky side of the mountains, and he recently pensioned ;he animal, putting 'Bawley' on the pasture and letting him have all he raved morning and evening at feeding time. An ordinary meal for 'Bawley' Is two racks of hay, thirty ears of corn, a two-gallon bucket of bran, a gallon of oats and all the stale bread and meat in the house. 'Bawley' is as tond of meat and bread as of hay and :orn; and, in fact, will eat almost any. thing, not drawing the line at fruit or sweet things. The four-legged gour mand once broke In the hog pen and smptied a large trough of slop which had Just been poured In for the por kers. His owner said he once heard the old horse whining In pain, and went out and dosed 'Bawley', his im prudence in devouring a bucket of aew-made jam, having superinduced serious illness, but the horse was ready to eat the following morning as usual." Louisville Post. VERMONT NEWS. Barre Oranlte. Barclay Bros, of Barre are now engag ed in building a granite mausoleum lor Mr. Joseph Caiebelli of Ueveiana, u.,ine same being a mortuary chapel ordered bv J. H. Wade, and to be a memorial lor his grandfather, first president ol Lake View cemetery, where the structure is to be erected. The chapel will be a beauti lultv designed Greek temple, 09 ieet long. 37 'feet wide nnd 30 feet high above ground. There is a carriage drive into the outer portico. Besides this, there is another portico and vestibule before the main chapel is reached. There will be about 800 tons of Barre granite used in the work, exclusive of the roof, which will be of bronze. The cornice and capi tals of columns will have some of the most delicate mouliliims and carvings ever cut in granite. This carving will be done (it Mr.Carabelli's shop in Cleveland ns it has to be done under the personal supervision of the architect. Surround ing the buildine is a colonnade ol 18 col umns heavily fluted with finely moulded bases to match. To get the work as near perfect ns is possible nil plain sur faces are to be ironed before fine hammer ing. This is the largest mausoleum ever let in Barre or vicinity and the store was oelrrtefl from Hart-lav Bros, ciuarry after a careful consideration of the product of every quarry in the United btates. Willard S. Isham, formerly of Burling ton, a graduate of the U. V. M. in 1882, now resuliniz in the eitv 01 ftiexico, Hav ing been connected with several railroads nnrl minim? comnailies as Civil engineer, has invented a process by which shells charged with dynamite cun be fired from an ordinary cannon by means of powder, the shells bursting by impact or a time fuse. He has made some successful tests in Mexico and has submitted his inven tion to the United States government. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Dimick of Wind ham were burned to death Ihursuay morning while trying to release their cows from the stable. Three horses and seven cattle were also burned, and the entire set of buildings destroyed. The loss is about $10,000, nothing beingsav ed. The remains ol Mr. and Mrs. Dimick were taken from the ruins burned beyond recognition. The Brattleboro Tellv Company now has 3,000,000 cucumbers in itstanks and putting in 150,000 more every day. These are all raised on 60 acres of land, some growers having already harvested 100,000 to the acre. 1 he company win not accept cucumbers less than two or more than hve and one-nail incnes in length, and growers have to go over their vines four times a week. The com pany has room in its tanks for 8,000,000 cucumbers. A relic in the shape ol a five-dollar bill was sent to a Poultuey bank trom Aita mont. N. Y . with a view of having it redeemed. The bill was one of the state bank issues, dated Seot. 4. 1803, with M. Clark cashier and S. P. Hooker president. The bank issuing the bill was organized in 1856 and continued until it was con verted into a national bank m I860. This particular bill however is not re deemable, and its only value is as a sou venir. Charles Hitchock of Shushan, N. Y., and Harr?

Judge Darling convinced them that they were wrong in that idea and fined them the utmost he could, $100 and costs. They paid the amount.

Perhaps the best-known beard in the United States is that of ex-Senator Peffer, of Kansas, which was said to measure three feet long, but there are many which exceed that In size. The museums frequently contain men five tet and over whose beards sweep the floor when they stand up, but perhaps the longest of all Is that of Legrand Larow, of Larow, Mo., which Is said to exceed any other in the world. It is seven feet in length, and 'has measured iy2 feet. Mr. Larow was born In Tompkins county, New York, In 1852, and his relatives are noted for heavy beards, but not extraordinary length. He is six feet in height and weighs 175 pounds. When standing with his beard down It extends two feet upon the floor. He has not shaved for over twenty years. He wears his beard braided and wound around his body, or else wrapped and lodged inside his vest. Boston Transcript. SMI f Quito Likely.
