The Broncos exterminated the Skeeters so far as Saturday's double-header is concerned. In all the nineteen innings played not one of the Pests got a chance to fly over the plate. The Skeeters were shut out as completely as are mosquitoes by a first-class window mosquito netting. What’s just as bad, the Broncos enjoyed themselves romping around, the bases. In the first game the score was 8 to 0. In the second it was 3 to 0. Mack did the twirling in the first game. He was benched in the second inning and Thiel man, who succeeded him. did net fare any better. The Skeeters were unable to find Case. In the second game Hen ley was on the slab and he allowed the locals but three hits. The visitors got all their runs in the third inning. During the other innings Foxen shut the visitors out. But it was a bad double defeat. The fans soured on some of Umpire Kerins’s decisions and would have mob bed him had it not been for the police. The score: 1' IKST ROCHESTER. R. H. P.O. A. E.

Reform politics is the same as any other kind of politics, only that the re formers are bigger fakers than, those of the machine brand. They not only “con” the people, but the ward workers as well. Col Edwin A. Stevens has sent a let ter to Eugene Kinkead, expressing his re gret that he cannot permit the use of his name in connection with the Democratic nomination for United States Senator. He gives as a reason that he has planned a pleasure trip to Europe and that he will not be able to participate in the pre liminary campaign'. This letter should not be accepted i as final. Mr. Stevens is a loyal Democrat, and if it be found that it is the sentiment of the Democrats of State that he should be the party’s, stand ard-bearer this fall he might be induced to reconsider his refusal. * Mayor Fagan’s Hoboken organ delib erately misrepresented Commissioners Nolan and Rooney when it said Friday that they were opposedifo a municipal street cleaning plant. “Rooney and Nolan say the contract system is all right,” declared the “Ob server.” Commissioners Nolan and RooneV said nothing of the kind. What they did say was that the .broken streets should be repaired before the street clean ing proposition was taken up. All efforts on the part Of the Street and Water Board to get the Board of Finance to appropriate money to put the streets in proper condition so they could be more easily ^cleaned. havevbeen oppos ed by the Fagan administration. The Faganites are playing politics in the street cleaning matter, as they are in everything else, and the “Observer,” for reasons of its own, is helping the game along. > The Montreal-Rochester game was prevented by Tain.

Vi - TO PROTECT THE GENERAL PUBLIC Interstate Commerce Com mission to Recommend Government Ownership of Coal Mines TO PREVENT EXTORTION REPORT, IT IS SAID, WILL CHARGE FIVE RAILROADS WITH VIOLATING ANTI-TRUST LAWS. PHILADELPHIA, June 25, 1906.— David1 Bennett Hill will be pleased ^to learn that a report is current here that as a result of the investigation of the c-oat carrying roads by the Interstate Commerce Commission, that body will advocate Government ownership of the anthracite coal fields in its report to the President. This step will be urged, it is saidl as the only means of protecting the public from extortion. When David' B. Hill, following the great anthracite strike three years ago. had a plank favoring national ownership of the anthracite coal fields inserted in | the New York State Democratic plat form he brought upou his head a deluge of criticism, and when Gov. Odell was elected by a scant majority of 8,000 votes it was declared that but for the anthracite plank the Democrats would have scored a victory. Mr. Hill can now shake hands with William J. Bryan over the fact that folks are beginning to grow up to their ideas. The report will directly charge five railroads with violations of various anti trust and interstate laws. It will advo cate further legislation which will com pletely divorce railroads from: any con nection with the bituminous coal indus try or any other industry along their lines. week with a swimming instructor in charge.

MEAT EXPORTS Record Reached In the Eleven Months Ending With May When the Ship ments Aggregated $180, 000,000 SENT ALL THE WORLD OVER GREAT BRITAIN IS THE LAR GEST PURCHASER OF AMERI CAN MEAT PRODUCTS, ITS IM PORTS REACHING $60,000,00. WASHINGTON, J-une 23, 1906:— Exports of meats and1 meat products from the United States in the eieven j months ending with May aggregate I over $180,000,000. The ten months for ' which complete figures have been pre sented by the Department of Commerce and Labor through its bureau of statis tics show a total of $166,000,000, and as preliminary figures for May indicate a total of over $16,000,000 for that month, this would make the total exports Of maats and meat products up to June j. about $182,000,000, with one month re maining to complete the fiscal year. These figures for eleven months show a larger exportation of meats and! meat products than in the corresponding peri od of any ether year in the history of our export trade, and show an increase of practically 60 per cent, when compar ed with the figures for the corresponding months of 1896, a decade earlier. This large increase occurs in all of the principal products, but is especially no ticeable in iard, oleo oil, salted pork, fresh beef, and' fresh pork. The value of lard exportations in the ten months ending with April, 1896, was $28,500, 000; in the corresponding period ending with April, 1906, it was $51,500,000, having thus nearly doubled in ten years. Exports of fresh beef increased' from a little less than $15,000,000 in the ten months ending with April. 1896. to prac tically $20,000,000 in the same months of 1900; hams, from $9,500,000 to $10, 500.000; oleo oil and' oleomargarine, from $7,500,000 to practically $15,000,000; salted pork from $3,500,000 to practically $10,000,000. Canned beef exports show but little increase during the decade, the value in ten months of 1890 being $5, 000,000. and in the same months of 1906 a little less than $5,750,000. Exports of bacon also show but a slight increase, tlte value in the ten months ending with April, 1890, being practically $29,000, 000, and in the corresponding period of the present fiscal year $29.o00,000. In order of magnitude, the exportation j of meats and meat products is, for the ten months ending with April, 1900: Lard, $51,500,000; bacon $29,000,000; beef, fresh, practically $20,000,000 jbr is, $16,750,000; oleo oil and oleomar . garine, $15,00u.000; salted pork, $10,000, 000; canned beef, $5,750,000; salted beef, $4,000,000; sausage casings, $2,250,000; and fresh and canned pork, a million dol lars each. Thus the total value of meat and meat products exported in the fiscal year 1906 will probably exceed that of any earlier year. All parts of the world are purchasers of American provisions. The lard ex ports of 1905 went direct from the United States to seventy-five different countries and colonies, the largest quantity to the United Kingdom, valued at $17,000,000: to Germany, about $15,000,000: to Neth erlands. practically $5,000,000: to Bel gium. $2,250,000: to Cuba. $1,750,000. while the remainder went in sums less than $1,000,000 value to vartbus other countries and colonies, practically every European country being a purchaser to a greater or less extent, as were all the countries of North and South America and, the principal countries of Asia and and Oceaniea. Bacon, which stands second in import ance in the value of the meat products exported, goes largely to the United Kingdom, which took, in 1905, practically $21,000,000 worth out of the total $25. 000.000 worth exported. The next largest purchaser was Belgium, a little over a million dollars’ worth, followed by Neth erlands to the value of about half a mil lion dollars, and Cuba a half million.

The measun now awaits the President’s signature. When Preisdent Roosevelt places hit signature to the bill New Jersey will re ceive for its national guard twice the amount now obtained from the govern ment. The present appropriation « New Jersey is $23,937.24. It wili b( $47,847.48 under the new law.

IN is made according to the number of rep resentatives each State has in Congress, rather than according to the strength o) the National Guard. New Jersey, undei liis method of appropriation, receives th< same sum as North Carolina and several other States, notwithstanding that tht strength of the guard in this State it double that of other States. The new law makes no changes in the basis of appro priation. making countries, the largest part ti Netherlands, which took $6,500,00i worth out of the $11,500,000 worth ex-_ ported in 1905; the value sent to Ger many was a little less than two millions, to the United Kingdom one million, to Norway three-quarters of a million, and to Denmark about a half.million dollars.
