TELEGRAPHIC MARgET LETTER Minneapolis, April 26.—Where1 some sympathy from abroad was naturally looked for on our weakness here yes terday we find instead material firm ness. Their cables closing above yes terday's closing. Notwithstanding this, recent rains completely turned the trend of speculation locally, and offerings continued for some time after the opening although not result ing in repeating yesterday's low fig ures. We felt that all £avorable con ditions were about fully discounted yesterday but' would not' have been surprised to have seen, a break through low figures made then. Considering the large amount of offerings, the mar ket displayed, in our judgment, an un usual strength which will be explained by the buyers a little later on. We Will require most favorable conditions from now on to maintain benefits re cently received. Receipts compara tively small and cash demand good. As we are now on export basis we must give foreigners credit for being Jar sighted enough to buy heavily on this reaction. Hold long wheat and in due time (present values will look very cheap. Corn while somewhat strong has not the inside support that wheat 'has.

Treaties with Colombia and Nicaragua on Isthmian Canals are Very Much Alike. Principal Point of Resemblance is in the Amount of Money to be Paid Down. Variance in the Two Agreements With Reference to the Payment of the Annual Rent. Washington, April 26.—The cabinet held a short session during the day during which the relative propositions of the Colombian and Nicaraguan gov ernments in connection with the pro posed canal were discussed. Both propositions will be at once submitted to congress. The president is exceed ingly anxious that some decision may be reached at this session. A comparison of the outlines of the agreements or treaties made by the state department with Colombia in re lation to the Panama canal and with Nicaragua and Costa Rica as to the Nicaragua canal, shows a general re semblance in the scope of the arrange ments. One point of resemblance is the amount of money to be paid down at once by the United States govern ment to the country making the con cession, in each case this is $7,000,000. If the Panama route is chosen Colom bia gets all of thip money. If the choice falls on the Nicaragua route Nicaragua will receive $6,000,000 and Costa Rica $1,000,000. No provision is made in the Colom bian protocol for the payment of any annual rent—that matter will be left to future adjustment. The agreements as to the Nicaragua canal, however, specially state the rent to be paid which is $30,0Q0 per annum, of which Nicaragua will get about $25,000 and Cqsta Rica $5,000. The original propo sition was to pay a lump sum repre senting the capitalization of this rent for 100 yars, but the republics prefer to have the money paid yearly in rec ognition of their sovereignty and in consideration of the allowance of their wish in this matter they have gone to the length of making the lease to the United States perpetual as against the 100 year renewable lease of the Co lombian agreement. CONSIDERED DETRIMENTAL. British Government's View of the Shipping Combine. London, April 26.—Further questions in the house of commons during the day on the subject of the shipping combine elicited information showing that the government was taking steps to cope with the situation, which, evi dently, was officially considered detri mental to Great Britain. The president of the board of trade, Gerald Balfour, said the board of trade had no' official information about the combine, but plenty of unofficial intelligence had reached the board. The effect of such a combination on British shipping generally would re ceive the careful attention of the board but any formal inquiry would be I premature. No information regarding I the arrangements made by the Amer ican syndicate to control the Atlantic traffic, including passenger, freight and other charges, and the movement of vessels, largely belonging to Brit ish companies, had been submitted to the board before the arrangements were made. As to steps to secure the commercial and political interests of the United Kingdom and to prevent foreign interference with British ship pins, conflicting with engagements made with the admiralty, the matter I had occupied and is occupying the gov I ernment's attention. 1 The secretary of the admiralty, Mr. Arnqld-Forster, replying to Henry Norman, Liberal, said the attention of the admiralty had been called to the formation of the Atlantic shipping combination or trust, with a capital of £34,000,000 ($170,000,000), mostly held in the United States, and with regis tered offices in America. The secre tary was informed that 28 British transatlantic steamships were con trolled by this combination among thepi being three subsidized steamers and five others which were held at the admiralty's disposal without subsidy. The WhitV Star line gave the admir alty no notice of it$ intentions to enter the combination. DEFIES the court. Great Northern Rushing Its British Columbia §ranch. Vancouver, B.

Julius Gibbes Hung in South Carolina for Assault Florence, S. C., April 26.—Julius Gibbes was legally executed here for an assault on the wife of a farmer last March. The case attracted much attention as it was the first time a special term of court ever had been convened in South Carolina for the trial of a man charged with rape. A speech by the sheriff to a mob the day after the crime, and the promise of a special term to try the negro, prevented a lynching. At the trial, which was conducted without disorder, the evidence was complete and the jury in a few min utes brought in a verdict of guilty. FOREST FIRES RAGING. Central Pennsylvania Suffering Heavy Losses. Williamsport, Pa., April 26.—Forest fires in the central part of the state have been raging for two days and are doing tremendous damage.

Brainerd, Minn., April 26.—All the apprentices at the Northern Pacific shops joined the strikers during the morning. They numbered about 4U men and declare that they will not re sume work until the "handy" men are removed from the machines. This in creases the number of the strikers to 130.

It wants to know whether it will be enforced, or whether such un warranted statements will be allowed. The court knows the wishes of the government and it is to be presumed that it knows its own affairs." Judge Odlin replied: "The court will determine the case according to law. The court wants you to under stand that it believes individuals have rights as well as governments." TUG MEN ON STRIKE. Traffic in Chicago Harbor Pra9ticallv Tied Up.

New York, April 26.—The Herald's London correspondent says: It is learned that in the course of a few days the promoters of the Atlantic shipping combination will issue an of ficial communique. It will set forth just what the promoters wish to con vey, namely, that the arrangement is one for mutual commercial conven ience, and has no special national significance. There are, however, it is safe to af firm, secret clauses in the agreement, which'^ill Lnot be8"made pu^Uc but the realization of which may be regarded as absolutely certain. It is the inten tion of the American promoters of this Atlantic trust to promote in congress anew shipping bill, permitting vessels built abroad, but owned in America, to be brought under the American flag. The trust will take over the entire British shipping companies. The greater part—in fact, nearly all—of the capital will be held in America. The Cunard company has definitely agreed on the basis on which it will enter the trust, and. the announcement of its adhesion may be expected at any mo ment. The remaining English Atlantic lines will either have to join or fight for their existence. For three to four years vessels of the British lines, which have been taken over, will re main upder the British flag. At the end of that period the contracts of the subsidized cruisers retained by the British admiralty will have expired, and a shipping bill will have passed the senate. The promoters have no doubt what ever on this score, and the whole fleets will pass under the American flag. "It will then be seen," said a well known promoter, "that, apart from sailing vessels, tramp steamers and private yachts and the navy, the Brit Iph flag will disappear from the North Atlantic." REMOVE OLD RESTRICTIONS. Churchmen Declare Young People Are Tied Down Too Closely. Chicago, April 26.—"If the clergy of the Methodist Episcopal church ex pect to keep their young men and wo men in the fold they must do away With old restrictions against card play ing, dancing, and attendance at the theaters. Tf they are not allowed to follow the ictates of their conscience they will attend churches where they will be allowed to do so, or they will not attend church at all." This, in substance, was the declara tion set forth at a dinner at the Union League club, attended by 65 prominent Methodist ministers and laymen of Chicago. The proposition received general discussion, in which Bishop J. W. Hamilton, L. D. Condee and Rob ert Quayle took leading parts. •'If we do not take active steps to ward arousing interest in the church on the part of our young men and wo men we shall stand alone in our old age there will be none to take the burden from our shoulders when we pass away," said Mr. Quayle. "If we seek to bind the young people down too closely or draw too tight a rein, we cannot hope to keep them with us." FREIGHTERS WILL CARRY ORE. Northern Steamship Company Quits Package Freight Business. Detroit, Mich., April 26.—On May 1 the Northern Steamship company, which for the past dozen years has op erated a package freight line between Duluth and Buffalo, will go out of business and its six steel steamers will be operated as an independent ore line, carrying grain and ore eastbound to Cleveland and Loraine and coal west bound to Duluth. Its freight steamers, the Northern Queen, Northern King, Northern Wave, Northern Star, Northern Light and Northern Wind, were, when built, the finest freight boats on fresh water. They have been operated in connec tion with the Great Northern system and are owned by Mr. Hill. The two passenger steamers of the line will be held by the Great North ern and will run between Chicago and Buffalo. They are the North West and North Land. CORNERING THE MARKET. Fierce Struggle to Control the Coun try's Egg Supply. Chicago, April 26.—The struggle for the control of the eggs of the country has become the fiercest in the whole range of farm products, says The Rec ord-Herald.

As a result of this competition prices paid to farmers are rapidly advancing and every indication points to unpre cedented high prices for cold storage eggs next winter. TWELVE-YEAR-OLD HERO.

II Pin JMK SHE Senate Will Investigate Charge that Sugar Trust Owns the Present Cuban 5ugar Crop. Inquiry will be fc xhuustive and Parties Making Charge to be Called on lor Proof. Text of the Solution as Adopted by the Committee on Relations with Cuba. Washington, April 26.—The senate committee on Cuba decided to insti tute an investigation into the charge that the greater part of present cro, of Cuban sugar is held by the sugar trust of this country, as directed by the resolution introduced in the senate by Mr. Teller on the 19th instant. The action of the committee was fa vorable only to the first half of the resolution which provides for an in quiry affecting the present holdings of Cuban sugar. A provision was added empowering the committee to send for persons and papers and a subcommittee, consisting of Senator Piatt (Conn.), Bumbam and Teller was appointed to hear the. testimony. Senator Piatt announced that it was his purpose to extend all facilities to those making the charge that the Cuban planters would not get the benefit of the proposed reduction in duties, to prove those charges, add ing that he would do all in his power to render the Inquiry exhaustive. The resolution as adopted and the preamble upon which it is based is as follows: "Whereas, it has been currently re ported that nearly the entire crop of Cuban sugar has been purchased and is now held by what is generally known as the "'sugar trust,' which is the principal refiner of sugar in the United States, and that any conces sions given to the raisers of cane sugar in the island of Cuba or any measures intended for their relief by admitting sugar at reduced rates of duty into the United Stages will only benefit the said sugar trust and that the Cubans will receive no real benefit from such concessions and Whereas, it is alleged that a large number of citizens of the United States have acquired large holdings of cane producing lands in Cuba and are now especially urging the reduction of duty on sugar on the claim that such reduction will benefit the people of Cuba, therefore, be it, Resolved. That the committee on relations with Cuba be, and is hereby, directed to make an investigation as to the truth of these charges and to re port to the senate. PURE FOOD BILL UP. McCumber of North Dakota Speaks on the Measure. Washington. April 26.—At the con clusion of routine business in the sen ate Mr. McCumber (N. D.), chairman of the committee on manufactures, ad dressed the senate on the bill "to pre vent the adulteration, misbranding and imitations of food, beverages, candies, drugs and condiments in the District of Columbia and the territories and for regulating interstate commerce there in." The object of his address, he said, was to convince the senate of the very great importance of the subject to the American people. Mr. McCumber declared that the ex tent ot the adulteration and misbrand ing of food products was appalling. The laws, he said, severely punished the stamping of lead as money. It was counterfeiting and the man who should advocate the repeal of the lavr against counterfeiting of money wouM be regarded as insane, yet, dust r-r mud was stamped as flour and glucose as honey. The one wrong was no greater than the other. At 2 o'clock the Philippine bill was taken up and Mr. Carmack (Tenn.) spoke against it. GREAT BENEFIT TO CROPS. Heavy Rain General Throughout the Northwest. St. Paul. April 26.—A heavy warm rain, which is general throughout the Northwest, began falling during the night and reports at 9 o'clock from va rious points in this district show no indications of a let up.
