Washington. Nov. 23.?The annual re?
port of Secretary Wilson summarizes
an Immense amount of valuable work
done by the Agricultural Department
during the past year. lie comments
particularly on the successful extension
of the Weather Bureau Service around
the Carribcan Sea, giving timely storm
warnings to the vessels of the navy and
merchant marine.
The Department lias gathered much
information regarding the plants which
supply India rubber and gutta percha,
and expects during the coming year to
locate in our island possessions stones
ftiliahle fn?- the culturo of thoao pinnte.
The United State.5 now imports about
$30,000,000 worth of rubber annually,
and It is thought that a large portion
of this supply can be raised in our new
island possessions. The same is true ot
Egyptian cotton, ot which we Import
$5.000,000 worth annually, while he
thinks that $200,000.000 worth of tropi?
cal products which we now Import each
year can all be raised In Porto Rico,
Hawaii and the Philippines.
iMuch work has been done In the
hybridizing of grains to secure va?
rieties which wiil resist drought, rust
or cold. Tho same methods are bein'g
used to produce hardy orange trees,
and Sea Island cotton which will be
immune to the fungus disease now at?
tacking that staple.
Pralical forestry work Is being done
on a large scale among the lumbermen
of several S;ntes.
Extensive experiments are being
carried on In road constructing in co?
operation with the local authorities of
the several States, including the build?
ing of sample roads from the' materials
found In different localities and the
laying of steel track wagon roads.
The third year of experimentation
with hog cholera shows that from 75
to SO per cent, of the hogs Injected
with serum were saved.
The Secretory strongly recommends
a more rigid inspection of our ex?
port dairy products, to counteract the
Injury that has been done to this
trade" by unscrupulous dealers in the
Regarding seed distribution the Sec?
retary say.* thai there is no need for
the department to come Into com?
petition with the sales of seedsmen,
bu-t there is room for valuable work in
the collection and distribution of such
foreign seeds and plants as are adapt?
ed to this country, but would not be
secured by private enterprise.
Tea growing experiments In South
Carolina are commended and he notes
that ?.fiCO pounds of good tea were.rais
ed in the gardens of Sunimervllle in the
past season.
A valuable Quality of rice has been
Introduced from Japan. It is superior
to the domestic product and should it
succeed In Louisiana hundreds of thou?
sands of dollars will be added yearly to
the rice growing industry. The Secre?
tary asks for $l0,0o0 to prosecute a

A telegram worded as follows and

"Reported in New York, cotton mar?

It has been learned that a similar
telegram was sent to every Important
cotton center In the South. It is thought
that this is part of a conspiracy to
break tho price of cotton. The name
of the sender of the telegram had been
sent to a responsible New York firm,
member of the Cotton Exchange, with
a request that an effort be made to
uncover the whole transaction.

(By Telegraph to Ylrgtnlan-Pilot.)
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 2!).?Nearly
two million dollars worth of property
was destroyed by two tires In the heart
of the business section of the city early
to-day. The greater ct the two Area
started in tho big department store of
Partridge & Richardson, at the south?
east corner of Eighth and Filbert
streets, the very centre of the shojiping
district, at C:80 a. m., and before the
flames had been put under control they
spread to adjoining property and caused
a loss of about Si.700,000 While this
Ore was In progress and spreading
every moment another fire broke out
four blocks away on the fourth lloor of
No. 410 Market street- The loss nt this
fire Is estimated at $100.000. Tho losses
of tho two fires are more than covered
by insurance.
The Eighth street fire was a very
ugly one for the firemen to handle.
Eighth street and Filbert street are
very narrow thoroughfares. There was
a strong wind blowing at the time and
the lire fighters had great difllculty In
preventing the flnmes from getting :i
good head way on the building on tho
opposite side of the street. As it was
many structures and their contents
were badly scorched and damaged by
water. It took four hours to get the
tlames under control.
The flro started in the basement of
Partridge & Richardson's store from
an electric spark, and soon the entire
building was a mass of flames. The two
stores to the south of Partridge &. Rich?
ardson's were soon gutted .and then
the flames attacked the big building of
the J. B. Llpplncott Publishing Co.,
on Filbert street, east, ot the burning
department store. This nnhiuhiin
house Is one of the best known in the
country, many high class reference
books, periodicals and numerous other
publications being produced by the
firm. The building was completely ruin?
ed. In this building, stored away in
vaults is nearly a half million dollars'
worth of manuscript, plates, and other
material for reference books, and It is
not yet known -whether they were de?
Lit Brothers' large department store,
which adjoins the Llpplncott building,
and which Is valued with its contents
at over one million dollars, was saved,
hut only after the contents of one cor?
ner of the building^had been damaged.
Strawbrldge & Clothier, another large
department store, on the west side of
Eighth street, also had a narrow es?
cape and the building and contents
were damaged to the extent of about
A number of other business houses,
adjoining Llpplncott's and Partridge
and Richardson's, were either entirely I
destroyed or partly damaged.
The estimated losses are:
Partridge and Richardson, $700,000:
.7. B. Lnppincott Publishing Companv.
$000,000; Artman <fc Trelchlcr, whole?
sale house furnishings, $100,000; Lit
Bros., $$5,000; Strawbrldgej; & clothier,
$50,000; Bailey's 5 and 10 cent store,
$50,0(iu: Rosenburg's millinery, $:!0.
000; Partridge & Sons' restaurant.
$20.000; Westeott & Thompson, electro.
typers, $10,000. Additional losses ag?
gregating about $25,000 are divided
among a number of firms, all the losses
of which are covered by Insurance.
I Tho second fire was discovered nt
7:30 o'clock In the four-story building
nt No. 110 Market street, occupied by
several manufacturing and wholesale
dealers. The entire building was gut?
ted, as was also the adjoining building,
No. 417. The estimated loss Is $110.000.
The loss on the buildings is estimated
at $10.000.
Over two thousand persons are
thrown out of employment by the fires,
but proprietors of other""' department
stores offer temporary employment to
all the Partridge Sz Richardson's ono
employes at the salaries they received
from the burned-out firm.
Although the big fire raged for over
four hours, there were no casualties be?
yond a few minor injuries received by
a half-dozen firemen.
