Governor Wright has cabled the secretary of war. making the follow ing quotations from a dispatch sent to General Wright by General Wood: "No disturbance in Cottobato valley. There was a fight with a band of out laws under All. who is as much an enemy of peaceful Moros as of ours. All Moros in valley are at work and friendly, and. for the first time in his tory, are taking out cedulas. Have ta ken out 2,500 in last two weeks. Not the slightest cause of anxiety.” General Wright does not anticipate any serious trouble with the Moros. They have no chief of prominence around whom'they could gather; they are divided into very small groups, commanded by insignificant dattos, in tensely jealous and at general war with each other. The Moro act abol ishing slavery and establishing a form of government wholly at variance with what has existed heretofore naturally has produced some dissatisfaction, but he regards serious opposition as im probable, if not impossible. The following is apropos to the ap pointment of Secretary Cortelyou as chairman of the Republican national committee: This is the day of the young roan. George B. Cortelyou Is about to step Into the shoes worn by Edwin D. Morgan. Zach Chandler. B. F. Jones. Matthew Stanley Quay and Marcus A. Hanna. With the exception of Thomas H. Carter, who was thirty eight when chairman, he is the young est man to become chairman of a na tional committee and the manager of a national campaign, says the New York Herald. Mr. Cortelyou Is in his forty-first year. William F. Harrity was forty-two when he took charge of the last successful fight the Democrats made for the presidency in 1892. Ed win D. Morgan of New York was forty three when he managed the first of the three campaigns which he con ducted for the Republican party in 1866, 1860 and 1864. All of these men had participated in political affairs as delegates to conventions, and most of them would be regarded as practical politicians. Mr. Cortelyou has not been the first private secretary of a President to become a Cabinet minis ter. Daniel Lamont and John Hay have preceded him, but he is the first private secretary who rose to his pres ent position from a subordinate gov ernment Job and who is to be advanced to the eminence of titular head of his party. Pay of Postmasters.

Washington, May 29.—A long cable gram from United States Consul Gen eral Gtimmere, received by Secretary Hay, states in substance that RaBouly. the bandit who kidnaped Ion Perdi caris, the Amerclan. and his Htepson. Varley, had made a set qf demands which the British minister and Mr. Gummere deemed it their duty to lay before their governments. Rasouly demanded that the Moorish forces should be withdrawn from the district in which his band operated, leaving them in control. He asked a large body ransom, to be collected from the governors of Tangier and Fez, who happen to be bitter enemies. He further demanded absolute immu nity for himself and his followers from pursuit or punishment for the kidnap ing and other crimes which they had committed in the past. To cap the cli max -of his demands, he insisted that the United States and Great Britain should solemnly guarantee the observ ance by the Sloorish government of the foregoing stipulations. Secretary Hay had a conference with the President, and it was agreed that Rasouly’s terms could not be met. To grant them would be equivalent to forcing the Sultan of Morocco to ab dicate in favor of a brigand so far as a considerable part of Moorish terri tory was concerned. Moreover, the United States government could not, without establishing a new and dan gerous precendent, undertake to guar antee the acts of another government. The next step is in doubt. Admiral Chadwick will be at Tangier by to morrow evening on the Brooklyn, to be followed in the course of a day or two by the remainder of his fleet. As the utmost-confidence is reposed in the discretion and judgment of the ad miral, the present disposition is to leave him a free hand to deal with the case in co-operation with Consul Gum mere. It is reported here that the French government which, under its recent treaties with Great Britain, has ac quired a dominating interest in Mo rocco. may be rather nervous over any foreign interference in the affairs of that country, and this, it is suggested, may lead to the exercise by the FYench government of some effective influence in the direction of securing Perdicaris’ release which will obviate any hostile move by Admiral Chadwick. American Trade in Manchuria. Washington, May 23.—A report on American trade in Manchuria has lust been received at the State Department from United States Consul Henry E. Miller at New Chwang, China. Mr. Miller says that the entire trade of Manchuria during the year of 1899 went through the port of New Chwang whereas this year there are seven dif ferent avenues of trade, each doing considerable business. The consul says there are no official records from which to give even an estimate of the quantity of goods coming in and going out through the various channels, and excepting New Chwang. The foreign imports in 1903 for New Chwang amounted to $13,314,012, against $15,641,442 in 1899, the largest import in the history of that port. Manchuria, the consul says, is ex tremely rich in minerals, including coal. iron, copper, silver, gold and other kinds, but these have been worked only in a small and crude way by the natives. Should this mineral wealth be developed and worked by modern methods in a manner fitting its economic possibilities. Manchuria, he predicts, will prove to be one of the richest sections of Asia. Mr. Miller says It Is a mistake to at tribut to the growth of Manchurian trade to the building of the Russian railway, as the bulk of the produce is hauled in carts, which compete with the railroad in a haul of 400 miles or more. "It Is erroneous to think that United States has a monopoly of the Manchur ian trade or that there is no successful competitor,” says the consul, “as there are four active sources of competition, each striving for a stronger hold on the trade, and the contest is so close that the variation in the value between gold and silver have a determining in fluence thereon.” The products of the hand looms of China, known as nankeens, made from the yarns produced in the various cot ton mills of China from both native and foreign cotton, is the strongest competitor. Mr. Miller says that the growth in the trade of the United 8tates cotton goods in Manchuria represents the greatest expansion of United States trade in the Orient, and the year 1903 was the largest in its history. There is reason to believe that considerable trade came into the country through Dalny and Port Arthur. The schedule of imports forwarded by Mr. Miller shows that f he United States has al most the entire foreign trade in cot ton cloth passing through New Chwang. Mr. Miller closes his report by say ing that the development of the flour milling business in Manchuria and the sale of the cheaper Shanghai flour have practically closed the market for Unite* 1 . States flour at all points ex cept Port Arthur. Opium Smuggling Chief Wilkie, of the secret service, recently gave out the following state ment: “Secret service agents detailed at the request of Assistant Secretary Armstrong have been investigating the suspected smuggling of opium between Seattle and Portland. After three months’ work under the direction of Operative Frank Burke, who was spe cially detailed for this service from the New York division, the investiga tion closed at midnight Sunday last with the seizure of $20,000 worth of crude opium and the arrest of S. B. Stevens, alias Tuttle. W. S. Cree and Alfred Larsen, all of Seattle. Stevens, who is said to be wealthy, is charged with b»ing the principal in the enter prise. which has been conducted suc cessfully, it is said, for several years.

The Denver News of May 26th says: The state engineer's office is pleased at the crop outlook for 1904. Reports have been received which show the Platte and all its tributaries have enough water to supply all the ditches which draw water therefrom.

Garraan introduced and succeeded in having passed a bill which would make It unlawful for any person or business house to expose or have for sale within the state any con vict-made goods without first obtain ing a license from the secretary of state. The license fee is SSOO, but in addition to paying this the applicant must secure the names of two or more responsible persons to sign a bond fo* not less than $5,000 to guarantee a strict compliance with the laws. A provision is that all convict-made goods sold on the Colorado market shall be labeled with the words "con vict made.” and also the year and name of the prison, reformatory or penitentiary in which they are made. There are no convict-made goods made in Colorado, but the ones in question are shipped in from Nebraska. Wyom ing. Missouri and a number of other states. Commissioner Montgomery believes that there is a general viola tion of the law in Denver and other parts of the state. DENVER MARKETS Cattle. Comparative Receipts— Month to May 27th 18,82!?
