Oyster culture is under going a boom so to sneak. The people are waking up to the fact that this is a profitable pursuit and that under the Mitchell law the' are assured some protection from depredations. The activity in plant ing beds is noticeable in the books at the headquarters of the State Commission in Port Lavaca. Ap plications for claims to be passed upon are coming in daily and Com missioner I. P. Kibbe believes that thousands of acres will be taken up in the . near future. During the month of August alone the following parties located claims in the Mata gorda and tributary waters: John Dully, 50 acres; B. A. Raymond. 50 acres; R. H. Gardner, 50 acres; J. C. Wiggins, 50 acres; J. H. John son, 50 acres; Maco Stewart, 50 acres; John E. Colli ns, 50 acres; Hoskins Foster, 50 acres; Hebert Austin', 40 acres; B. Burck, 50 acres, F. M. Sterling, 50 acres; John J j. Sterling, 50 acres; S. B. NobLc, acres; George T. Sargent, 50 acres; Y J. Phillips, Jr., 50 uteres; A. C. Stewart, 50 acres: S. A. Foote. 50 acres. The new law allows fifty :icres to the individu.-.l and as much' as G40 acres to the corporation. The -September report will soon be out and will show a continuance of the August activity. In addition to the individuals big stock companies arc getting in the field and artificial oyster growing will soon enjoy as much prominence and employ as many men and as much capital in Texas as in any State on the Alantic seabord. Many of those going into the business are from other States THE PRESIDENTIAL SUCCES SION. In the event of the death of i President Roosevelt there being no vice president he would be suc ceeded by the secretary of state Hon. John Hay. In an act passed by the forty first congress it-is provided that in the event of the removal, (death, re signation or inability ' of both the president and the vice president, the secretary of state shall act as president until the disability of the president or vice president is re moved,'' or a president is elected. If there be no secretary of state, then the secretary of the treasury will act; the succession running through the cabinet in this order: secretary of war, attorney general, postmaster general, secretary of the navy, secretary of the interior and secretary of agriculture the order being the same as that of the crea tion of the departments. John D. Rochefeller has just pur chased anotjiflftitc in the Adiron dacks, where his holdings now amount to 9.0m)0 acres, the whole having cost hiifkbout $500,000. He owns all of MeSSNyri lake, a mountain resort of popuflty. His latest purchase was 6,000 acres, all the residents on which have . been notified to leave at once.

Washington'cbrrespoiident' Gal voston News: As -showing that it is the unexpected that happens, it is to be noted that the Navy Depart ment has gone into the business of suppressing the sale of intoxicating drinks. On the Island of Tahiti, the American Samoan possession secur ed as a result of the tri-partite agreement distributing the islands of the group, the natives must go dry, and the officers of the Amer ican colony are no longer able to purchase their beverages from the single individual who heretofore has had a monopoly in the isl and. . The Navy Department has decid ed that prohibition shall be observed in Tahitfgjjjs action is taken on the recommendation of the Naval Governor, and is vigorously op posed by the United States m Vice Consul at Apia, Mr. Blacklock, who owns the hotel and has had the license privilege. Mr. Blacklock sccured the privilege some time ago and has enjoyed a lucrative bus iness. He says the natives arc not addicted to the use of intoxicants1 and that no harm comes frmi sel ling them light liquors. Mr. Blacklock points out that the sale of liquor is permitted o'i the Ger man and English Islancl nearby. 1 lie department has sustained the; Naval Governor in Jfvokingthc' license of Mr. Blacklock. G A R R ETT S USTA I N ED. Stock Journal Score another point for uPat:' Garrett of El Paso, who has been sustained by the federal government in his classification of calves and young cattle shipped from Mexico to the United States. TheCorralitos company across the line undertook to pass calves that were one year old and over into the United States as less'than one year of age. Mr. Garrett insisted they were one year and over,-and demanded a duty of $3.75 on them. This the company refused to pay, but wanted to par $2 a head, the duty on calves less than one year old. Mr. Garrett refused to accept the $2, and it was referred to Washington with the above result. WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY A SOLID FACT. Leslie's Weekly. ow that the sensational and "nine days' wonder" period follow ing the invention of wireless tele graphy has passed, and the period of practical development and ex tension has set in, we shall jrob ably hear much less through public prints about this really marvelous J device, although, before we are fair ly aware of it, it will be in general and familiar use throughout the world. That wireless telegraph; has already been brought well within the realms of practical usefulness is evident by the fact that our Goy- ernment is- establishing a svstem for its own use in Alaska and that nearly -all the ocean steamship com panies are equipping their vessels with wireless apparatus. That it is being taken up also as a new and promising field for the investment! of capital is evident from the state-' THE OLD RELIABLE PIP ' POWDER Absolutely Pure THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE: ment that a company has just bu formed in England with a capii.il of about $S75,000 for the purj of operating an extensive system .f both wireless telegraph and t.-l-phones. The Westminster Ga:'ti.r says it is informed in behalf of tin. company that they can telegraph or telephone fully live miles, ;u. by the time the company is ii working order they expect to bf - pared to sell an apparatus v. hh : which every one1 Avill be able to raph or telephone anywhere witbiu at least twenty miles. The grc'sm' will be always used as a conduz-to. All that is needed, it is said, t.. connect the telephones in a r ... with the transmitter or receive -means of a short wire with in nearest gas or water pipe, hi--l ; will carry the current to and ir.uiv j the earth. The walls of house- . i not form any oljstaele to the tmn j mission of messages. If the pul-K. mina naci not long since lost n capacity for "staggering1 over i'u achievements of modern invenir genius, it would suirely experi'-ii.-. that sensation when it contemplate the posibilities opened up by tb? announcement. It is believed the career of R-v. Sam Small, the Georgia evangelic, is at an end as a speaker. Smah collapsed while speaking ihBratI- boro, Vt. and was led from tit. stage. In Barre the next day un acknowledged he was intoxicate ' In lorrisville he again fell. Aft'-: talking to his audience for 15 min utes the curtain was rung down ;uk.' he was carried to a hotel. TT pli3'sician said his collapse was .in to an overdose of morphine, :u-? that Small's career as a pubi it speaker was probably ended. KAFFIR ENGLISH. The historic Babu will hav look to his laurels now that "educated Kaffir" has entered tt. in. field, says the London Speaker. The following is the text of a IetUrr sent by a government employee who has bren officially rebuked for his intemperate habits: "Having promulgated by cou duct of drinking presumptuously , I beg to tell me nominally the per son informed you. Consulted by speculations, the case should W reprimanded for the derrogation ot my name. When you address. I your inspection , I perceived dis honest intermeddling; qthewise 1 am not a controversial acumen. Remember you are forced to tell me. The matter is not to be ap probated clandestinely, because it was proclaimed publicly. Qui k- ness of the answer will so obiiir yours truly."
