Algeciras, Jan. 19.—This being Mo hammedan Sunday there wtyl be no session of the international confer ence of the Moroccan reform, through deference for Moroccan delegates. In the meantime exchanges of views between the delegates of the powers have brought on agreement not to cdnslder the questions of the prear ranged Franco-German program. One result of this is to exclude religious subjects the Vatican is said to desire to introduce through Austria. How ever, one of the ambassadors says that the Jewish question can come up not as a religious issue but as an incident to protection to the subjects of the sultan. Mohammad-El Terres, the head of the Moroccan mission, has informed the delegates that the sul tan is prepared to abolish the harsh laws requiring the Jews to prostrate themselves before mosques and other humiliating practices. It is expected that the American delegates will strongly favor an amelioration of the conditions of the Jews. V'.v THE REPORT HIS NO FACT Wm. English Walling Was Not Arrested in Russia as j! a Revolutionist. New York, Jan. 19.—The corres pondent of the Associated Press at St. Petersburg, having been queried constantly of the reported .arrest of Wm. English Walling, for revolution ary activity, telegraphed today that Walling has not been arrested and that the report to that effect is with out foundation. The Associated Press received the statement that Walling had been arrested from Abraham Ca han, editor of a Jewish daily, forward ed it yesterday and accepted it as correct. The third day' of the grain grow ers' convention was rather a "no program" one—that is much of the time had no set papers or addresses. But it proved interesting just- the same. Though not on the program for today, T. A.' Hoverstad, a prominent conductor of farmers' institues, spoke on "Poultry Culture'," and instead of gc|ing into 'the questions of "live breeding*' or "in breeding" made a decidedly practical' talk on the sub ject, telling how the farmer could with small expense and labor add to his income and make his living much more pleasant by a flock of chickens. This was followed by a spicy dis cussion of farmers' elevators. O. G. Russian Officer Avenges Dese cration of Home and Re-. ceives Applause. 19.—The last act of a has just been.

New York, Jan. 19.—Politics in the golf world centered today about Del monico's, where the delegates from the club* comprising the United States Golf association assembled for the an nual meeting of the association. The chief work of the meeting is to elect officers for the year and select the courses for the championships. All of the principal officers of the associa tion, including President Ransom H. Thomas, are slated for re-election. The only change to be made will be to fill the places of several members of the executive committee. There is much speculation regarding the choice of places for the annual tournaments. The amateurs, generally regarded as the blue-ribbon event, will undoubt edly be played over some eastern links. It is conceded that Brookllne Country club of Boston may have the event for the asking. The open tournament will probably be awarded to some club in tjje metropolitan district. Pittsburg and several other places are applicants for the Women's event and the final selection is a matter of speculation. THE FARGO DELEGATES ENGAGE IN LIVELY DISCUSSION Major of Hope, who has had fifteen years experience in the work, being the first speaker. He stated that farmers' elevators had increased the price of wheat from four to five cents per bushel wherever they were located. The commission houses are opposed to them because they would get this four or five cents. He believed there should be a farmers' elevator at every station in North Da kota, and this would give the farmers absolute control1of the grain trade in the state, and compel the grain ter minals to stand up and take notice. President Worst showed that what the .farmers would save on a crop would build 500 elevators, each cost ing. $6,000, every year. J. S. McDonald spoke on the same subject, and said that he did not ob ject to the people who sold to the upstairs. In the darkness he did not see his wife, who escaped him and gained the door. But a slight noise revealed the lover, and, mad with pas sion, the husband seized a revolver and began fifing in -the dark. His shots were answered with groans, and when the lights were restored tha corpse of a young Russian student was, found in a corner of the room. The colonel gave himself up and was tried by court martial. When he was acquitted the public gave him an Im mense ovation Jn the streets. He was exonerated so far as the killing of the student was concerned, but was con demned to two months' arrest for hav ing deserted his post. 9m HOLMES DTSAfrE.

Washington, Jan. 19.—Secretary Wilson, of the department of agri culture, was not disposed to make any statement regarding the report of the Keep commission when asked for his opinion of it today. In reply to questions, however, the secretary said that the fullest opportunity had been given the commission to investi gate the methods of the crop estimat ing board In preparing their esti mates.. As to the recommendations of the commission looking to an im provement in the work of the statisti cal bureau, Secretary Wilson declar ed that many of the changes suggest ed have actually been made In the department and were now and had been for a long time in force.. He de clared that the increased sphere of usefulness of the state agents was no new idea, as it had been originated in his department and he needed only the necessary additional appropriation to put It into effect. The proposition, however, to do away with eighty-five thousand agents and correspondents, he said, was a radical one, and one that needed careful consideration. Most of the reforms recommended by the commission, Secretary Wilson said, being a matter of law, would re quire action by congress before they could become effective.

He emphatically endorsed the Mc Cumber grain inspection bill. N. S. Blair gave some practical sug gestions along the line of co-opera tion, and the need of the farmers joining for their mutual protection. George Murray of Hope aroused the convention to a pitch of enthusiasm that reminded the spectator of a politi cal gathering, by calling on those who were willing to subscribe $100 each to the Minnesota exchange. The ex change must be worth $50,000 before it can purchase a membership in the chamber of commerce, and it is the policy of those contributing to make it reach that point.
