Coast Line Is Changing. Permanent alteration In the climate uf the Alaskan coast, the opening of new flsning banks of unestiinated value, and the eventual closing of Ber ing straits, are among the , scentific probabilities now being investigated as the result or the eruption of Mount Katmai, a month ago. With the air still clouded with dust from the . eruption, various geological parties, and severaj revenue cutters, are . exploring the bottom of the sea to determine- bow far suomirine gaasnaphy has ben -Wwtuged. This hef-feature or the situation is-held to give great importance- to-the eruption in which the., immediate damage was slight.' and from which there was no Known loss of life. So far as the earth's surface is concerned, the erup tibn was beneficial, the volcanic asl ash deposited havini already stimulated plant growth. Xxamlnln- Ocean's Tloor. The revenue cutters in the north are now assigned to the task of examin ing the ocean's floor. A modification of the Alaskan climate in the last year is ascribed to a shifting of warm ocean currents by a lifting of the sea bottom, and the present researches are partly for the purpose of learning what more may be expected in that direc tion. Besides this, a raising of the floor of Bering sea probably would mean new fishing banks here, aug menting the existing cod fisheries. The salmon run was unininrod h- tho vnl. I canic disturbance. Sc May Turn to Land. Geologists assert that the tops of submerged mountains which form the Aleutian islands are rising steadily and, after eventually cuttin- off Ber ing sea. will continue rising until what is now the sea will be replaced by a great sweep of land. Recent disturb ances are attributed by them to pres sure on the ocean's floor caused by de posit of enormous amounts of "sedi ment. The floor, they say, bends, and the craters spout to relieve the pres sure.

I don't think 1 ever saw more flies than I had around my premises on my farm. I did this sprinkling for three weeks and the flies were almost eliminated.

Pascual Orozcos orcer at seven oclock Sunday night saved the town from what might have resulted In serious trouble, as many of the 3,500 rebel soldiers in tne city had be . come intoxicated and frequent disord ers were taking place on the main street. At dusk the soldiers began to be come unruly as a result of drinking , during the "day end " Calle Comercio, the mam street of the city, was imeu with armed men. .Many tights were taking place and occasionaly rifles and pistols -were being discharged in the air, which added to the confusion in the streets. At one time there were about 10 fights taking place between soldiers and governor Gutierrez, who was standing on the custom house steps, rushed to the middle of the street and separated two soldiers who were quarreling. The police rushed as many of the disorderly ones to the jail as they could but were almost helpless among the mass of several thousand ill disciplined rebels who now infest the town. After the closing of the saloons, the gambling houses were also closed. The merchants of the- city closed their stores and the street lights were ex tinguished for time, placing the town in totaWdarkness. With this the sol diers quieted down and left the main streets to return to their barracks. Orozco Still nt Snui. General Orozco, Jr.. the rebel chief, still was at Sauz. 196 miles south of Juarez today, giving final directions to the ". columns encamped there, which will be sent across the plains toward Casas Grandes. The rebel commander was in fre quent telegraphic communications with his father. Col. Orozco. who is in charge of the Juarez garrison. Gen. Orozco is said to desire the speedy transfer of the troop's from Juarez to the Casas Grandes region, and trains were being- prepared early today for a general movement. ; The mutinous spirit of the troops. which gave vent last night in several , street quarrels, had dUappeared, all saloons and gambling houses being ordered closed until the troops de- I part.

There was little or no drunkenness Monday morning and the soldiers were orderly. The saloons of the town remained closed as a result of Col. Orozco's order of Sunday night, and with the exception "blind" places in the outskirts of the town, no liquors can be had. However, the rebel officers are azle to obtain liquor and the Casino saloon, which is run by Col. Jose Orozco, was opened to these as was the Tivoli. Store AH Cloe. All of the larger stores of the town closed Monday morning after a few or ders on them had been issued by the commanders of the town. The Three B, the largest store in the city, and the L.evy brothers' dry goods store, have closed. The grocery stores closed up Sunday morningbefore the troops of Ho jas and del Toro arrived in town. The troops are not lacking for food, as a large supply of cattle has been obtained and slaughtered for them. There seems to be plenty of beef. Gen. Salazar III. uen- lnez balazar remains in Juarez, nVlnS come to tne city Saturday night Gen. Inez Salazar remains in Juarez, on the evening train from Casas Grandes. Salazar has been ill for the last few weeks and has come to Jua rez for medical treatment. He is not dangerously ill, however, and is about the streets of Juarez with the other officers. Gen. Antonio Ilojas amused the citi zens of the town by having the rebel band serenade him while he was eating breakfast Monday morning. He took his meal at the Astor house restaurant and, leaving his retinue of petty offi cers and soldiers outside, had the rebel band play while he ate. So far there bus been no looting in Juarez, although Juarez people expect the soldiers to start something of this sort at almost any time. Kebcl Legislature Meets. The provisional governor of the rebel state, F. Gutierrez, was at his office in the custom house Monday morning and the rebel legislature, which is also present in the city, he said, would go into session some time Monday to transact a little of the routine business of the government.

Though unred to come to Juarez, 190 miles north of here, lor a council of war, the defeated commsinderincliief late Sun day had made no definite announcement regarding his itinerary. Th .so members of his staff closest to him professed to believe that he would send to Juarez the comandeered private car in which lie has ridden awav fro n three battle fields, and traiel with his men on horse back over the government road to Casas Grandes. 175 miles due northwest. One reason for their belief was the sensitive ness of the general, who makes no effort to conceal hi i chagrin at the rebel de feat in Bsichimba four days ago.

Archliald lmpenciiment Articles. Chairman Henry Clayton, of the committee of judiciary of the house of representatives, tc,day presented to the house 13 articles of impeachment against judge Kobert W. Archbald, of the United States court of commerce. Mr. Clayton's report was unanimous from his committee. It constituted the ninth impeachment of a judicial or civil official qf the United States since the foundation of the government and is the first since the impeaenment trial of judge Charles Swayne, of the Northern district of 1'lorida. who was acquitted on Feb ruary 27, 1905. His business transactions, while a ; .udge on the bench, were held to unfit him for further .service on the bench and a resolution was presented Im peaching him and haling him for trial ' efore the United Statea senate. Epitome of Articles. I An epitome of the articles of im reahment follows: Article 1 Negotiated witn tne lane Kallroad company for the purchase of the Katydid coal dump for Edward J. Williams., his business associate, "In the opinion of.yAU aunmlttee. Judge Archbald's. parilctotwffln this trans-ECtBWfWwIeT-all MreWffgiflastRnees. was reprehensible and prejudicial to the confidence of the American people in the federal judiciary." x Article 2 Joined with George M. Watson, of Scranton. Pa., in an at tempt to sell the stock of the Marion Coal company to the Delaware. Lack awanna & Western Ra'lroad company. This company was owned by the Bo land brothers, of Scranton, at that time litigants against the railroad be fore the Interstate commerce -commission. ' The committee charged Judge Archbald figured in the negotiations "for a valuable consideration." The Culm Bunk Charge. Article 3 sought to lease That judge Archbald from the Lehigh Val- ley Railroad company a culm bank on 1 the Girard estate coal property near Shenandoah. Pa. At this time the rail road was a litigant before the com merce cout-t and before the interstate commerce commission. The committee said: "It 'is the conclusion of your committee that the officers of the coal company (subsidiary) relinquished the right" to operate the said culm bank because of the'influence exercised upon them through- judge Archbald's posi tion as a member of the commerce court." Article 4 That iudge Archbald sought additional evidence from Helm Bruce, attorney for the Louisville & Nashville railroad, in a case before the commerce court, which had been closed and given to the judge for decision. Later he considered a supplemental brief from Mr. Bruce without tlfe knowledge of the attorneys for the interstate commerce commission, to meet a conclusion reached by another member of the court. Judge Archbald wrote the decision in favor of the rail road company. "In the opinion of your committee, this conduct on the part of judge Archbald was unfair and un just to th'e parties defendant in this case." Article 5 That Archbald used his judicial influence to get a coal lease from the Philadelphia & Heading Coal company for Frederick Warnke. It is charged that Warnke promised the judge $506 and later a note of $500 was discounted for the judge and has not yet matured. CIinrgCH He Used Influence for Gnln. Article 6 That judge Archbald used his Influence to help James R. Dainty, of Scranton, Pa., purchase a coal tract from the Lehigh Valley Tailroad while the Lehigh suit was before the com merce court, "The persistency with which judge Archbald sought these business favors or property concessions from railroads having litigation, or likely to have litigation before the commerce court, indicates a well de fined plan to use :ils official position and influence as a member of such court for financial gain and profit," said the committee. Article 7 That judge Archbald fig ured as a signer and the payee of a note for ?2.500 by W. W. Ressingef. of Scranton. IV five days after he had adjudicated an insurance law suit in which KesJ.njier was Interested as beneficiary. Articles 3 and 9 That judge Arch bald sent Kdward J. Williams to Will iam P. Boland to discount a note for $C00. signed by John Henry Jones, while the Bolands were interested in a law suit before him. Boland would not discount the note, which was dis counted in a Scranton bank and never has been paid. Articles 10 and 11 That in the spring of 1910 judge Archbald permit ted Henry W. Cannon, of New York, to pay his entire expenses on a pleas ure trip to Europe. Mr. Cannon was at that time, and still is. a stockholder and director in many railroads. 'It ls claimed that Mr. Cannon is a distant relative of judge Archbald's wife," said I the committee, "but. however, this may I be. your committee regards it as im proper, for a judge to thus obliterate himself to an official of numerous cor porations likelv to become directly or indirectly involved in litigation before his court." For the same trip. K. T. Searle. clerk of judge Archbald's court, collected $500 from attorneys practicing before the bar. Article 12 Appointed J. W. B. Wood ward, of Wilkesbarre. Pa., a railroad attorney, as jury commissioner of his court. This was caleul.itol to bring the federal judiciary into "disrepute," the committee taid.

Y., July S.-A call to the people of the United States who are In sympathy with the "National Pro gressive movement" to send delegates to a national convention to open in Chicago August 5 was given out yes terdav by United States senator Joseph M.TJIxori of Montana, Theodore Roose velt's campaign manager. The call is signed by "members of the committee chosen at a meeting held i" Chicago and also bore signatures of Roosevelt followers in 40 states. No Territorial Recognition.

Maine, for instance, postponed any definite action because there is nowa strong fight on in the primaries, with the sympathy running in favor of the progressive movement Delaware, North Carolina. Arkansas and Nevada probably will take part in the convention. Mississippi and South Carolina may possibly be unrepresented. Lain Down No Rnlex. "The call lays down no rules as to the methods of choosing delegates, since each state vill be expected to select its delegates by its own methods. The representation will be cut down to just one-half of the previous conven tions. This was deemed advisable since this convention is to be primarily a deliberative body. "In all probability the convention will adopt the name 'national pro gressive' for the new party, but I can not say definitely what will be done. Thus far no Issues haVe been author itatively stated and of course the plat form Itself will have to be decided upon by the delegates." The Call In Full. The text of the call is: "To the people of the United States, without regard to past differences who, through repeated betrayals, realize that today the power of the crooked political bosses and of the privileged classes behind them is so strong in the two old party organizations that no help as regards the real intents of our country can come out of either. - "Who, believe that the time nas come for a national progressive movement a iMrttftjfcwWe moveraait-?oji nbH-ges-, tloflaT'lllWB, jo that the peopl' iayb served.

M. Bartlett. An Alfalfa Meal Mill and a Creamery Are Ultimate Objects of Promoters. rHEEE STOEES AT . . THE BEGINNING A $50,000 corporation to operate a siring of stores at Ysleta, Clint, Be len, San Blizario and Fabens and pos sibly later a creamery a.t one of these valley towns, an alfalfa meal mill at Fabens, is now in process of formation, and the capital has been about all sub scribed. Stores will only be operated first at Clint. Faben3 and Belen. H. D. Camp is at tne head of the concern and has associated with him Paul H. Luckett. of Inde Xrarango. Mex ico, and a number of local men. The alfalfa meal mill is not for the immediate future, but will be one of the subsidiary conoerns which the new com pany will organize later, probably next year by an increase of capital which. will eventually become J100.000. A creamery is projected also, probably at "the same time the alfalfa mill is built. The chain of stores will be extended within the next few months to include San Elizario and Ysleta, it is under stood. The promoters of' the stores have all these plans under way and as soon as conditions justify, will put them. into effect. The stores will not only offer the valley residents what they need in the line of general supplies, but the inten tion is to buy the produce of the valley farmers and ship it to El Paso and other points. The alfalfa meal mill will be erected at Fabens, because that point is now at the lower end of the cultivated lalley. so that all alfalfa purchased in the valley can be shipped for "milling in transit." unloaded at Fabens, milled and then reshlpped to eastern Texas. The creamery will probably be located at Clint, that being the most central lo cation in the lower valley for such an undertaking. The company is on a deal to buy the Sharp and Shairer store at Belen. At Fabens the company now has a store and part of the new stock has already been ordered. At Clint a new store will be erected. At Ysleta and San Ellzarfo some build ing already in existence will be rented or bought by the company later, when !t is decided definitely to enter those tewns. The concern plans not only to sell to the valley farmers and home owners, but to buy their produce in any quan tity at the highest market price. Butter and milk are to be bought for the .creamery when, Jt'tte. built, and eggs, chickens, frattsi berries and vegeta bles are to be bought and shipped to EI Paso and other markets. The pro moters expect to make the chain of stores the central market places in tbe various towns, where the people will ccme to sell their own products and buy the stocks carried by the com pany.
