The Pianos wo sell have made
a reputation for themselves,
and have gained a place at the
Pinnacle -of Piano Popularity
by their own merits, sweetness
of tone, easy and responsive
aetion, beauty of design shown
in the cases. Durability, in'
fact, by e/erything that goes
toward making piano perfec
tion. The musical value of a
piano depends largely on its
tone. Our pianos are noted
for long sustained, or singing
qualities, produced by a homeo
genolis arrangement of' the
entire instrument, and the care
given to the smallest details of
construction. No other pianos
approach their beauty, grandeur
and volume. You will only
need to hear them to appre
ciate their merits. If you want
to get the best for your money,
don't buy until you figure here.
You can name your own teirms.

The Population ol the Territory U lhcrdislni
Rapidlyfts Wealth.-
Washington, Nov. 23.-rGovergor Fer
guson, of Oklahoma, in his annual report'
to the secretary of the interior, estimates
the present population of the territory at
650,000 and the actual value of taxa
ble property at practically $400,000,000,
although only $84,134,472 is returned by
the assessors for 1903. The territorial
indebtedness is $461,766.. The report
says that speculators and prospectors
have harassed many of the Jessees of
lands in Kiowa, Comanche and Caddo
Counties by prospecting for mineral, cut
ting timber and attempting to locate
mining claims on school lands, but the
state board has uniformly declined to
recognize that the mining laws applied
to these reserved lands and have treat
ed all prospectors, and locators as in
truders. Rules have been amended to
prevent the hypothecating in leases as
security for loans and their transfer in
blank and in the future all leases and
transfers must be executed before a
notary public or other ofheer empowered
to take acknowledgements as in real es
.tete,. transfers.

Washington, Nov. 23.—The -house
will meet Tuesday evening, having dis
posed of the Cuban bill, it has no busi
ness before and unless an agreement
shall be effected by which the called
session is to be brought to an early
close, an adjournment will probably be
taken until Friday and then an adjourn
ment will probably be tayen until
Monday or Tuesday. It is suggested
that it is extremely doubtful if there
will be a quorum tomorrow and, that
if the point of no Quorum should be
raised it would be impossible to act on
4 concurrent resolution providing for
an adjournment even' should ohe be
brought over from the senate. Sorhe
of the house leaders have expressed
themselves in opposition to an adjourn
ment before the Cuban bill shall have
been disposed of, but what might be
the result of the conference between.

It is possible that the speaker may be^
ready to announce the committee as"

Washington, D. C., Nov. 23.—The"

New York Nov. 23.—New York's
season of grand opera opens in the
Metropolitain Operahouse tonight and
from all indications it will be as suc
cessful under the nfew management of
Heinrich Conried as it was in the past
under -the direction of Maurice Grau.
For the opening night the opera will
be Verdi's "Rigoletto," in which the
new Italian tenor, Enrico Caruso, will
for the first time in this country be
heard in the role of the duke. Mme.
Sembrich will appear in her admirable
impersonation of Gilda. The Rigoletto
will be Antonio Scotti, and Mme.
ouise Homer and Mr. Journet will be
the Maddalena and the Sparafucile.
The cast will also include a'flew sMur

Washington, Nov. 23.—The -sfenate

ty as to whether a final adjournment of
the extra session will be secured dur

majority of the
senators are anxious to bring the ses
sion to a clpse, and to this end an
agreement has been practically entered
into for a vote Dec. 16 on the Cuban
reciprocity bill. The acquiescence of
the house of representatives in the
programme, however, has not been se
cured and until the two houses reach
an agreement no definite announcement
can be made. Leading senators on the
whole are rather confident that an ad

say it will be impossible to hold a

jail. -v
Mysterious as has ^been the murder,
the presence bf the accused'than in the
county jail is nearly as mysterious.
Brought there Saturday by a colored
attorney and a colored doctor from St.
Paul, he lies on the cot and.absolutely
refuses to discuss the affair..
'See my lawyer,", is. all that can be
elicited from him, and he moans and
groans and turns uneasily on the cot
all the time. The police are confident
that the slayer, or at least one of the
slayers of Battalia, is caught and the en
tire department heaved a sigh of relief
when the man was taken up in the jail
elevator and securely locked in the hos
pital ward. i
V. D. Turner of St. Paul and F. Mc
Ghee, b3th colored, the former a doctor,
brought the man to Minneapolis in a
closed carriage, arriving at the jail about
8 o'clock.
According .to their story Calderone
reached St. Paul at a lstt« hour on the
night the crime was cdtnitoitted and
Turner dressed his Wounds: Later Cal

Two. Men DeM ai a Result of Some Pe

Philadelphia, Nov. 23.—1^6 fiCTSons
were killed and a ^alf dozen others were
injured in a wreck near Gwynedd, a
short distance from this city on the Pjhil4
adelphia & Reading^ Railway. The:
dead are C. L. Custer, aged 57 years, a
passenger, who lived in this city,' and
Harry Roderick, of Doylestown, Pa.,
fireman of the wrecked train. While the
injuries to some of the passengers are
serious, all of them will recover
The railroad officials believe the acci
dent was due to a deliberate attempt afc
train wrecking. The tram was A'local
one from Doylestown, and had just
passed the station at? Gynedd when the
engine jumped the track and went dver
an embankment followed by one car.
An investigation, the railroad officials
say, showed that spikes had been drawn
from a plate connecting the tracks and
the rails had been spread apart.

Ottawa, Ont., Nov. 23.—It is under
stood here that the officials of the St.
(.ouis exposition are unwilling to meet
representatives of the livestock interests
of Canad until the latter decide whether
or not they will exhibit at St. Louis.
This attitude is hardly likely to bring
about any change*'of-front-on the part
of the breeders and stockmen of Can
ada. _.
In fact the likelihood is that they
will issue an ultimatum refusing to send
stock to St. Louis unless there is a
decided madification of the regulations
under which Canadian animal's are ad
mitted into the United States, as well as
of the conditions upon which the prize
lists are based. Breeders in Canada
freely express the opinion that those en
gaged in similar pursuits in the United''
States are afraid of Canadian competi
tion. This fear, they say, is based upon"
the success which Canadian livestock
exhibits achieved at the expositions at
Philadelphia, Chicago and Buffalo^*
Vienna, Nov. 23,—Much indignation
is expressed here over the steadily in
creasing price, of Qil. Since the forma
tion of the Austria-Hungarian petroleum
cartel prices liave^been advanced 50 per

go still higher as soon as the present
stocks become exhausted. The ad
vance inflicts the greatest hardship on
the poorer classes, especially on the
thousands of tailors and dressmakers
yvho work in their ow^i .homes.
The local authorities of the several
districts have taken the matter up and
are urging the city council to use every
means to break up the oil monopoly

I was the fortunate o^ner of a Cary
