Taking advantage of the business rush incident to the opening of tha Interstate fair, forgers got busy in the city yesterday afternoon and a total of $25 was raised on paper which was afterwards found "to be absolutely worthless. The names of C. O. Anderson and J. B. Folsom were 6harged and despite the fact that the work was decidedly coarse, money was advanced. A check payable to Arthur Harris for $12.50 and signed by C. O. Ander son, was presented at J. L. Lemieux's place of business on lower Front street. The endorsement on the back was by Ralph Watson, and even if the check was originally good, it would not been possible to get the money on It without the signature of the person to whom it was made payable, on the back. C. A. Swanson Co. cashed a like check. In exactly the same hand writ ing, on which the name of J. B. Folsom was forged.

The tribesmen have lost severely, but their fanatical courage is unquenched and at the moment the situation is so serious the cabinet at a meeting held today under the presidency of King Alfonso, decided to increase the force under General Marina, who is conducting operations, and keep on sending troops, no matter how many may be neces sary. Tc is estimated that the Kabyles act ually engaged in conflict number about 6,000 on foot and 15,000 horsemen, but should all the hill tribes join the move ment, as it is feared they will, Spain will have to face 50,000 well armed men of desperate courage, a situation which would necessitate the putting into the field of 60,000 troops at a cost which might be ruinous in the present state of the country's finances. The prospect and the general popu lar disinclination for military adven ture, especially where national honor is not concerned and against wild tribesmen whom the sultans of Moroc co themselves have never been able to subdue, is creating intense dissatisfac tion with the government's handling of the Melilla affair, and has axcited agi tation Madrid, Barcelona and else where a&ainst war. There have been many demonstra tions in the streets denouncing the government. Today a crowd, composed mainly of Women, rushed the Southern railway station here trying to prevent the departure of troop trains. There were many street disturbances. Social ist and republican parties are taking every advantage of the popular feeling which is in a most excitable state. His Job. Exchange: A preacher was stay ing with a friend in the country.
