I PAGE SIX "Fitting Bob Evans" The present rear admiral was at one time a commander. He was also the commander of the seal patrol fleet stationed in Alaskan islands. His flagship was the gunboat Yorktown. During the summer months she was •cruising about the Prib.vlot' Islands with special instructions to capture the suspected Jane Gray, which was ostensibly a whaler. The captain of the Jane Gray was a man named His Decision of Character Shown Recently In Dealing With a Seal Pirate. The recent killing of five Japanese seal poachers near the Prib.vlof Is lands in the Behring sea recalls a similar incident in which the pres ent commander of the North Atlantic fleet and the revenue cutter service were involved. In the waters of Hampton Roads adjacent to the site of the Jamestown Exposition to be held near Norfolk in 1907 and vicin ity are stationed several officers who remember the incident and tell it with great pleasure as showing the •early bent of Rear Admiral Evans' mind toward getting at the bottom of any matter at once. Kelly, who was afterward captured red-handed in the act of seal poach ing. In the summer of 1S92 the York town rounded a point of one of the Pribylof Islands and saw in the dis tance a schooner with boats out ap parently engaged in seal hauling. She was at once suspected to be the Jane Gray. Commodore Evans com-. Sng on deck ordered all steam to be turned on. in an effort to capture the schooner. As soon as it was evident, that the Yorktown had set out in chase, the schooner hoisted in her boats and crowding on all sail, made away. Through their glasses the Yorktown's officers could see that the crew of the schooner were busily engaged in jet tisoning the cargo of their ship. In a short time the Yorktown was within signaling distance. Flags were hoist ed ordering the schooner to stop. Still the Jane Gray kept on setting every sail that could be made to draw. This failing to stop the schooner, the York town's whistle set up a furious roar of warning. Of this likewise the Jane Gray was heedless. In less than an hour after first sighting the Jane Gray the Yorktown was in range of her guns. Deter mined to have no further misunder standing of his wishes. Commodore Evans ordered the gatiing guns of the gunboat's deck to be turned loose on the pirate schooner. In a few minutes the water all around the Jane Gray was leaping upward with sharp spurts. This was a message Captain Kelly could understand, so he brought his schooner up on the wind and lay to, waiting the ship's boat, which he knew would be soon forthcoming. He was taken to Commodore Evans and before that officer could speak, broke out. "what in thunder do you mean by shooting at a peaceful whaler?" "There, there." replied Commodore Evans, "don't take on so. By the way, there are not many whales where you were anchored this morning. I think?" Capt. Kelly was then asked why he had not stopped when signalled. He replied that he had lost his signal book. To the same question in regard to the Yorktown's whistle he answer ed that he thought her whistle had been broken. He stoutly asserted he had stopped his ship of his own accord and was about to send a boat to the gunboat to request that it cease its target prac tice so near to his own ship. The naval officers were not to be fooled so easily, however, and the schooner was searched from deck to keelson. Nothing of an incriminating nature was found, as Capt. Kelly had not stopped until all evidences of seal poaching had been thrown overboard. As he was known to be somewhat careless in his regard to the law. the president's proclamation forbidding seal hunting in the Behring sea was read to him and he was told that if he was ever found in those waters again his ship would be confiscated. With this he was released and sailed away to the south through the encircling chain of the Aleutian Is lands. During the following year, returning to his old haunts his schoon er was at once captured, condemned and sold, and he was heavilv fined. WHAT IS HOME WITHOUT DEAR OLD UNAPPRECIATED DAD? We happened at a home the other niiUn. and over the parlor door saw the legend worked in letters 01 gold: "What is home without a mother?" Across the room was another briei, "God bless our home." These mottoes will be found in many homes worked by nimble fingers and expressive of the love and devotion felt by the members ol the household for the holiest and happiest of earth's blessings, "mother" and "home." "Home, home—sweet home, be it ever so humble, there's no place like home." But there is another factor in the blessedness of home that is too often forgotten, or at least perhaps sometimes not fullv appre ciated, and that factor is "dad." We want to preach a little sermon in "dad's" behalf today. It Is no disparagement to "mother" to say that, alongside of the legend referred to above this other would be appropriate: "God bless our dad." "Dad" gets up early, lights the fire, boils an egg, grabs a dinner pail, •and wipes off the dew of the dawn while many a mother is sleeping. He makes a weekly handout to the butcher, the grocer, the milkman, and the baker, and his little pile is hardly worn before he has been home an hour. He stands off the bailiff and keeps the rent paid up. If there is a noise during the night dad is nudged in the back and made to get down stairs and find the burglar and kill him. Mother darns the socks, but dad buys them in the first place, and the needles and the yarn afterward. Mother does up the fruit well, but dad buys it all, and jars and sugar cost like the mischief. Dad buys chickens for the Sunday dinner, carves them himself, and draws a neck from the ruins after every one else is served. "What is home without a mother?"—Yes, that is all right. But—"What is home without father?" Ten chances to one it is a bearding house father is under a slab and the landlor is a widow. "Dad, here's to you. You have your faults—you may have lots of faults —but we will miss you when you are gone." Yes. dear old unappreciated dad! The legend ought to grace the walls of a cottage or a place in your honor wherever you may appear. You may trend the pathway of life, bearing its burden ungrudgingly and cheerfull}, and go down to the grave unhonored and unsung in framed legends, but you will be missed and mourned nevertheless in cold grav davs when you can no longer answer the call for your services, and will receive your reward onthe other shore. Dear old dad: God bless dad'—Russel villo Courier-Democrat. SOME Tit A ITS OF IBA. Apartment Houses in Suburbs of Havana Are Popular. 'Some 15 or 20 minutes out from "Havana an enterprise contractor has •erected a number of apartment houses, modern in that they are apartme'nts, but Cuban as to walls, floors of fine mosaic, large roofed-in porches in place of courts and Cuban kitchens. Rent in Havana is surprisingly high, '-apartments of from six to eight rooms readily bringing $75, $80 and $90 a saionth. And these are suburban places. Cottages are comparative ex pensive. With all this, it is impos sible to build fast enough to supply the demand. Labor is hard to secure, and once secured work does not go on with the vim that rears and fin ishes a house in a short time in New York. The Cuban laborer is slow he must have time to rest and to smoke and very often he likes his siesta as well. He is independent in a way, because foreign labor intro duced into Cuba does not flourish, the climate being too severe for the av erage laborer until he has been in the country for some time. The coloring of Cuban houses is another characteristic borrowed from the early ages, and is likely to sur vive years of American invasion. In fact, Americans seem delighted with the quaint effects, and express no de sire to build American houses in Cuba. The cement of which, these houses are built is for more artistic than a covering and polish of paint. On a drive along the gulft of a house re cently built by a New Yorker was noted as a fair example of the houses built by Americans in Cuba. The house is pale green, with trimming of lavender and pale blue. The combi nation sounds something like an Eas ter hat, but, odd as it may seem, these houses of gay plumage, as it were, are in keeping with the tropical sur rounding, and a little wren of a house would be sadly out of place. The tourist to Cuba would do well to -take his automobile, for not only are there some splendid drives within a 100-mile radius of Havana, but also many features of country life may be enjoyed in this way, which could not be in any other, except by tiring carriage drives or a horseback journey. One of the chief attractions about Havana are the roads. Far out In the country they are bad. but for some distance outside of the city they cannot be excelled. In seven differ ent directions they extend on an aver age of from 30 to 35 miles of macadam and in one direction they run for 65 miles through tropical country, under waving palms, by typical Cuban land scape views and in and out through picturesque villages. Along all of these roads, as well as to the interior, the people are busy. There is activity iv WILLARD HOMAN. on all sides. In a recent motoring tour over the so-called race course and along 20 miles or so following the gulf, more real Cuban life was seen than could be covered in a week any other way.—Harriet Quimby in Les lie's Weekly.

Blackburn. tv Joseph Clay Stiles Blackburn, United States senator from Kentucky and for forty odd years prominent in the poli tical affairs of the Blue Grass state, was born in that state, Oct 1, 1838. His father was a breeder of thorough breds, but Joseph took to the law. After graduating from Center college he spent two years in Chicago and re turned to the south in 1860. He began his political career as a member of the state legislature. Prior to that he had been an elector on the Breckenridge and Lane ticket, had fought in the army and had spent some time In Arkansas as a cotton planter. He en tered the lower house of congress in 1875 and remained there ten years. He then served in the senate twelve years, and lost the seat when the democratic craft went to pieces in the silver storm. When Kentucky re turned to the democratic fold, Black burn returned to the senate. He took his seat in 1901, and next January'the legislature will elect his successor. In 1896 Senator Blackburn was men tioned as the choice of the Kentucky democracy for the presidency of the United States. MY BURGLAR. Being an Account of the I'seful Side of a Calling Which, in This Case, Yielded Little. I had always wondered how it would seem to wake up in the stilly niglit and suddenly confront a bur glar going through the drawers of the dresser, or attempting to extract revenue from a pair oi trousers that never, even in flush times, contained more than street car fare. I am cer tain that no man has less cause to fear an attempt at burglary than I have. I do not believe in keeping any quantity of money about' the house it is fool-hardy and unsafe. As soon as we get any money ahead my wife and I always look around for a judi cious investment. We usually invest the bulk of it in groceries, and lay the remainder out for house rent. Yet I know of no house that could be more successfully burglarized than ours, nor one that would pan out less to the square foot oi bulk. I had always nought that if 1 should be called during the small hours in the back part of the night 1 would do it in a pleasant off-hand manner. I would insist on his not doing a bungling job. If there is any thing I hate to see it is poor work manship. If I am to be burglarized 1 want to be robbed in a thorough and systematic manner, b.v a man who un derstands his business and has a reputation to sustain. Consequently, when I awoke a few nights ago and saw a man going through the contents of the bureau drawers 1 felt that at lust the crucial moment bad arrived—at least I was to come face to face with a real bur glar. He was standing with his back to me and I raised up and looked him over. I was disappointed in him. Ho was a cheap-looking, low-browed fe low. 1 reasoned that his work was light, clean and sufficiently lucrative to enable him at least to dress like gentleman. I felt hurt and vexed that this weal chinned indivduai should break into my house. I did not like to be thrown into contact with him. I felt that his early training must have been sadly neglected, and that we could, have nothing in common which would be likely to make a meeting profitable of congenial to either of us. Still, since chance in the shape of a burglar's jimmy had thrown us to together, I felt that I must at least be civil toward him. Some men might have in a moment of haste sprung up and broke the slop jar over his head. I have heard of persons trying this and never living to regret it. I felt a longing to keep him from taking offense at any action on my part, so I leaned over and asked him if he was a burglar, and if 1 could be of any as sistance to him in any way. He faced about and turned a six chambered burglar's code oi laws on me and remarked: "When I gets through here you'll think I am a burglar fast 'nough, and if you don't keep quiet I'll splinter your block." "Why, my man," I remarked, not heeding his bluster, "your intrusion will not disconcert me in the least in fact, it is a matter of pleasure and satisfaction. None of your profes sion has ever complimented me by supposing that I had anything worth taking a risk on! that is why I was afraid you might be an amateur." "Say. nqw," said my guest, "will you lay there quiet and not try any tricks on me, or shall I tie you to the radiator while I tap the crib?" "If you don't care to have me assist you I'll lie right here and if you find anything I wish you would come back and tell me. I have never been able to find any valuables in this house, and if you can locate any I'll write you a testimonial that ought to boom your business and get you a good practice." He left, locking the door after him. and I heard him rummaging through the lower part of the house. In about half an hour he came back. He looked sullen and disappointed, and I felt sorry for him. "Say, look here," said he. "You've got to shell out. You've got your sugar hid somewhere. I have gone through your clothes and everything in the house, and haven't even found a pocketbook yet." "You might look around here for two months and not find one. The fact is my wife went through me just two days ahead of you. She is out in the country now visiting her cous in. li you are hungry you will find some cheese and crackers down in the kitchen. I am sorry I am not stocked up for burgalrs. There is no money in the house except 122 pennies in that toy bank over there it belongs to the boy, but you might as well take it it will get broken into with' a hatchet on Christmas anyhow." My burglar had the good sense to appreciate the situation and departed as quietly as he had come, evidently a broken-hearted man. The next morning by judicious use of a neighbor's telephone I had the chief of police, three officers and a squad of reporters around our house before sun up. I showed them how in the quiet hours some nocturnal desperado had wantonly broken into my peaceful home and completely sacked the house. All the family plate, my wife's jewels and our rare curios were all not only missing, but totally gone. I got my name in all the papers. Even journals that had refused my manuscripts time and again now de voted a column in telling of my great loss. The grocer extended my credit indefinitely, many friends offered to lend me money, and everything began to look bright and rosy. fSEKMA' COLONY TRADE. Mother Country Reaps Rich Harvest from Her Dependents. Germany's colonial trade is a source of constant income to the Kaiser's em pire, and the German newspapers are now rejoicing over the- increase of commerce between the home country and the colonies. According to statis tics just made public, Germany's im ports from her colonies have risen from $1,623,160 in 1902 to $4, 231,402 in 1905, and her exports to the colonies from $5,025,608 in 1902 to $10,271,088 in 1906. German West Africa exports more to Germany than any other oi her colonies, and German East Africa comes next in the list, having almost trebled the value of her sales to the mother country in three years. From German .East Africa rubber is the leading article of export, 874,720 pounds, worth about $357,000, having been shipped from there in 1905. The exports of coffee from German East Africa have fallen off from 899,590 pounds in 1902 to 795,080 pounds in 1905. Guano, which formerly oc cupied a prominent place among the exports from Southwest Africa, is no longer of importance. Caberoons and Tege began to export anything of Importance only during THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. the last year, when Cameroons exports amounted in value to $2„143.903 and those of Tege to $257,992. Here, as in German East Africa, rubber oc cupied the chief place, 2,220,020 pounds, valued at $1,586,666, having bee shipped. Palm nuts and coca beans were shipped in great quantities to Germany, and ivory shipments amounted to 60,940 inmnds, worth about $41,650. There are no statis tics from Klao-Chou for 1905, but in 1904 coal for the first time figured among the exports, along with ox hides. Shantung coal worth about $2,880 was exported. Copra is the chief export from Samoa. The Im ports of German from her colonies have increased nearly 5S per cent since 1904. Germany's exports to her colonies have naturally been much heavier than her imports from them. In 1902 her record was $5,025,574. In 1905 these figures had Increased to $10,371,088. To Southwest Africa she sent lust year goods to the value of $4.3S3,00S. as against $1,095,514 in 1902. With Samoa, during the same period. Ger many's trade decreased from $121,142 to $107,100. The other colonies oc cupy intermediate ixtsitions between these two, ranging from East Africa. West Africa and Kiao-Chou to Ger man Australasia. Among the articles sent to the colonies from the home country, iron, textiles and beer oc cupy the first place in weight. Then follow the precious metals, with silver in the lead. The exportation of lo comotives, automobiles, iron bridges and machines to East Africa all show ed a heavy increase last year. Natur ally provisions for the troops in South west Africa played a heavy role in the exportations to that colony. Rail road supplies and iron products all show a decrease during the last year. To West Africa the (principal ex ports were heavy cotton goods, rough iron, knives and coal. German Aus tralasia takes only textiles, ironware and bottled beer in appreciable quant ities. Samoa purchases dress goods, building materials and lumber. PERILS OF THE RAIL. Ei cry Day 3d Are Killed and 28N In. jured—Danger of Travel Stead, ily liicreasin^. During the year ended June 30. 1905, according to a statement issued today by the interstate commerce commis sion, an average of 26 people was killed a day and '»S injured a dav on railroads in the United States. The total number killed during the year was 9,703, while the injured numbered SU.008. The greatest casualties were among the railroad employes, as follows: Trainmen, tenders, crossing tenders and watchmen, 136 killed. SS3 injured other employes, 1,235 killed, 36,097 in jured. The casualties to employes coupling and uncoupling cars were: Employes killed, 230 injured, 3,543. The casualties connected with coupl ing and uncoupling cars are assigned as follows: Trainmen killed, 217 in jured. 3.316 switch tenders, cross ing tenders and watchmen killed, 6 injured. 128 other employes killed, 7 injured, 99. The casualties due to falling from trains, locomotive or cars in motion were: Trainmen, killed, 407 injured, 4,645 switch tenders, crossing ten ders and watchmen killed, 12 injured, 126 other employes killed, 60 in jured, 559. The casualties due to jumping on or off trains, locomotive or cars in mo tion were: Trainmen killed, 119 in jured. 3,798 switch tenders, crossing tenders and watchmen killed, 4 in jured, 111 ether employes killed, 49 injured. 628, The casualties to the same three classes of emploves in consequence of collisions and derail ments were: Trainmen killed, 579 injured, 4,736 switch tenders, cross ing tenders and watchmen killed, 8 injured, 37 other employes killed 85 injured, 750. The number of passengers killed was 537 and injured 10,457. In the previous year 441 passengers were killed and 9,111 injured. There were 341 passengers killed and 6,053 in jured because of collisions and de railments. The total number of per sons other than employes and passen gers killed was 5,805 injured, 8,718. These figures include the casualties to persons trespassing, of whom 4,865 were killed and 5,251 were injured. The total number of casualties to per sons other than employes from being struck by trains, locomotives or cars was 4,569 killed and 4,163 injured. The casualties of this class were: At highway crossings—passengers killed, 1 _injured, 10 other persons killed, 837 injured, 1,564 at stations, pas sengers killed, 381 injured, 571 at other points along track, passengers killed, 6 injured, 37 other persons killed, 3,320 injured, 1,891. The ratios of casualties indicate that one employe in every 411 was killed and one em ploye in every 21 was injured. With regard to trainmen—that is- engineers, firemen, conductors and other train men—one trainman was killed for every 133 employed and one injured for every 9 employed. In 1905 one passenger was killed for every 1,375,856 carried and one injured for every 70,655 carried. For 1904 the figures show that 1,622,267 passengers were carried for one killed and 78,523 passengers were carried for one injured. MEXICO'S GOLD BASIS. The first year of Mexico's exper ience of the gold basis in her finances, which was completed, on May 1 last, has proved the most prosperous in the history of the country. Investments of foreign capital in the republic, which had practically stopped for two years prior to the change, in anticpa tion of the adoption of the gold stand ard, were at once resumed on a larger scale than ever, and native capital, which had also been held back, was quickly released. At least $150,000,000 of foreign capital was invested in en terprises in Mexico In her first year as a gold standard country, about one-half of it beingAmerlcan and the rest largoly French and Canadian. Most of the new American capital was invested in raidroad construction, min ing equipment, plantations, city real estate and mercantile establishments. The total investments of American citizens in Mexico now aggregate $600,000,000. Mexico has begun her second year of the gold basis under particularly auspicious circumstances. Finance Minster Limantour has placed in his budget $1,000,000 additional federal revenue for the current fiscal year. The annual production of $40,000,000 of silver is expected to show a scb stantlal increase, while the produc tion of copper, which now amounts to more than $12,000,000 annually, promises this year to reach the $15, 000,000 mark. Its high proce is in Mexico's favor, and there is no present indication of a decline in the near future. It is natural that Mexico should be rejoicing over the prosper ity which, her change to the gold basis has brought to the republic. Labor Notes l.ahor Coavntlmi la October.

It has been definitely decided by the Central Labor Union of Scranton, Pa., to build a $50,000 labor temple'for the use of the trades unions. HIC JACET. Captain Bullock Gave Rings of Black Hills Gold as Souvenirs. When President Roosevelt made his campaign tour through South Dakota in 1900 the party on his special train included among others Captain Seth Bullock of Deadwood and H. I. Cleve land, a newspaper correspondent. Aside from its national importance, the trip was a memorable one, and when Captain Bullock returned home he decided to send souvenirs of the country to Mr. Roosevelt and the members of his party. So he ordered rings made of Black Hills gold, with the_ initials of his friends engraved inside. Before they were ready to send, Mr. Cleveland had exhausted the news features of the trip and com menced writing little stories of the men and things connected with It. Among the others he wrote a story of Captain Bullock. He told of how the redoubtable cap tain, who had won his title with the Rough Riders in the Spanish war, had served as sheriff In the early days of Deadwood and Montana, all of which was true, and then he gave his well trained imagination full sway and told of the men the captain had killed, of the road agents and Indians whom he had sent to their quick reward, of the gory fights with desperadoes in which he had come out all alone and bloody-handed, and recounted with deft and bloody touch a long list of other desperate deeds usually found only between salfron-hued cov ers. Captain Bullock, in his pretty hill side home In Deadwood, surrounded by his wife and children, read with wonder and astonishment the amazing story of his past. He is, as a matter of fact, a quiet, law-abiding gentle man. He carries on his conscience the death of no man, red or white. But It was a very good story, and no one Appreciated it more than did Captain Bullock, yet, because his wit is as keen as Mr. Cleveland's Imagina tion, he could not resist the retalla tidn that suggested itself to him. He took the ring intended for Mr. Cleveland back to the jeweler and, to the initials on the inside, "H. I. C.," he had the engraver add a word. When the little memento was sent to the newspaper man it was accom panied by a brief letter of explana tion. "My dear Mr. Cleveland," the note ran. "I am sending you a little Black Hills souvenir of our trip with Mr. Roosevelt through South Dakota. You will see that I have had your initials engraved inside. The "jacef I added after reading your story of me in a Chicago paper." CARPETS IX LESS DEMAND. The Smyrna trade in Oriental car pets with the United States has fallen off considerably in the last two years. The preference for "antique" goods, which are a class of rugs and car pets procurable in the market in Constantinople and which come from Persia, the Caucasus and Mesopotamia has greatly affected the demand for the genuine Smyrna articles. Dealers in Smyrna say that most of the car pets sold in Constantinople have the name without the quality of being antique, but they are sold as such, and an enormous trade exists in them. There is no end to the varities made In bright colors, which find their way to the Stamboul market, and wh'ich would almost be unsalable but for treatment with acids, which tone down the colors and give a superficial ap pearance of age. Most varieties con tain more or less cotton In the form of weft, which serves to give the car pet body and stiffness. The carpet by this treatment loses in value by- reason of its inferior density and the dimin ished quantity of wool employed in its manufacture. Looms are almost always worked by women and girls. It is not unusual to see girls under ten years of age sitting by their mothers and helping to tie the knots. Beginning at this early age, they become experts when womanhood has been reached and work so rapidly that the eye cannot follow the movements of their hands. None of them earn more than from 30 to 40 cents a day. The looms may not belong to the persons who work them. Every producing center has its own methods and customs, which dif fer widely in many cases. In some cases the looms belong to the man who furnishes the work, and who is supposed to act as an intermediary between the weaver and the Smyrna merchant. The cost of looms is trifling, as they are made in a primi tive way out of coarse timber, without Iron. Looms are scattered through out the towns and villages, and the merchant who has fifty looms has to inspect them every day to make sure that his carpets are made in com pliance with his instructions. The six heaviest'purchasers of rugs in 1904 were France, $282,200 the United Kingdom, $160,000 Austria Hungary, $89,700 Germany, $62,000, and the United States, $41,000.
