AFTER INCREASING ORIENTAL TRADE Pacific Commercial Museum Sends Special Commissioner to Far East to Study Trade Require ments. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30—Be cause of its wishes to increase the commerce between the Pacific coast, the Philippines and the orient, the Pacific Commercial Museum will take active steps in gathering data and exhibits in those countries. Hamilton Wright has been appointed Bpecial commission- er for the Pacific Commercial Mv- Beum to the orient. He is going to the Philippines to make reports on agricultural conditions there, and write newspaper letters. Mr. Wright Is authorized to gather such Information and data, statistics and exhibits as will assist in bringing about closer commercial relations between the orient and the Pacific coast. The exhibits will all be shipped to the Pacific Commercial Museum with tho accompanying data, so that any merchant may sec •what goods are consumed in the Philippines, nt what prices they are sold and exactly how they are put Up for consumers there, as well as other valuable Information. It is believed that there are many arti cles consumed in the orient which can profitably be shipped from Call' fornla and other points, provided they are done up In packages such as the people over there are ac customed to use. Mr. Wright left on the Coptic on BIGGIST SHIP IN THE WORLD HOW THE MONSTER AMERIKA COMPARES WITH A 32 STORY Special Correspondence of The Press.

TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY BALTIMORE, Md,, Oct. SO,—For Iwenty-three years Thomas Dowd, 15 years old, has provided for his ■rife, Mrs. Mary Dowd, and until October 7 ho gave her all his wnges cooping only 25 cents a week for lis own use. On the date men ;loned, owing to some llttlo differ ences, Dowd did not glvo his wife its week's salary, but he placed it >n tho buffet, where she would 'lnd It. Mrs. Dowd, however, did lot discover tho money until after October 21 and, besides the Philip pines, he will visit China, Japan, Sumatra and the Straits Settle ments. It is understood that his itinerary in the interior of the islands, as planned, will take him over the surveys of the railway to be bonded by tho government in the Philippines. This railway, as planned, will be 1200 miles long. Mr. Wright is the second commis sioner the Pacific Comnlercial Mu seum has put into the foreign field, J. Wilson Evans now being in South America doing similar work. The Pacific Commercial Museum is getting early into the territory of the most promising commercial fields as far as the Pacific coast is concerned. The commercial condi tions that are being investigated by Mr. Evans are in countries whose trade is being generally stimulated by the progress of work on the Panama canal. Since the return of Secretary Taft and the conclusion of the Russo-Japanese war, great, interest is being taken in the industrial de velopment of the orient; both in the Philippines and Manchuria be ing fruitful fields for manufactured products, especially those of Cali fornia industry, such as Hour, can ned and dried fruits, nuts, raisins, canned meals, lard, tallow, soap and candy, etc., while each month finds the California manufacturer Of machinery and electrical mater ials of every class better able to compete with eastern manufactur ers.

STATE PRISON BOARD BEGINS KEES* TRIAL WALLA WALLA, Oct. 30. —M. F. Kincaid, J. H. Davis and H. D. Jones, members of the state board of control will start an investiga tion of the many charges which have been made against A. F. Kees, superintendent of the penitentuary at this place, today. There are several charges made against Kees which will be looked into and, should they be proven true, there is no doubt that Kees will be dismissed from his present place. He is charged with delaying the execution of one Bradshaw, who was setenced to death by the su perior court of Franklin county. The sentence was passed some time ago, but Bradshaw is still alive; that he did not take care of the prisoners under bis care and did not have the water used by the men for drinking purposes exam ined after being advised to do so by the state's doctor, Blalock; that at the last election he tried to register men who were not elig able to vote. WHAT 61650N HAS GIVEN UP TO STUDY ART (Scripps News Association.) NEW YORK, Oct. 30.—Charles Dana Gigson has dropped a very tidy fortune in order to go out and make of himself as much as in him lies. Mr. Gibson invented the "Gib son girl," like unto nothing on earth or in heaven, and he coined f85,0000 a year out of his invention. And now he will study art, and will paint pictures, devoting his brush, after he shall have learned color work, more particularly to portrait painting. As portraits are supposed, as far us possible, to be representa tive of actual human beings, it is apparent that Mr. Gibson will have to sweep every nook and corner of his brain very thoroughly, and clear them entirely of the "filmy nothings" with which he has de luged, and delighted as well, the public, and reproduce as best he may the features of those who sit to him for their portraits. KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS IN CONSULTATION (Scrlpps News Association.) INDIANAPOLIS, tad., Oct. 30.— The supreme lodge officers of the Knights of Pythias met here today inconsultation to consider the ques tion whether the next biennial con vention of the supreme lodge shall be held in New Orleans or some where else. The prevalence of yellow fever in New Orleans has caused a considerable scare among tho members of the order all over the country and for some time the question has been agitated whether It would not be better to change the place for holding the conven tion to some other city than to take great and unnecessary risks by holding the convention in New Orleans.

The investigation Which is taking place is to ascert ain whether or not the package had money In It when it left Ham ilton, or whether it was opened en route. TREAT DESERTERS AS CRIMINALS (Scrlpps News Association.) WASHINGTON. D. C, Oct. 30 — Major General F. 0. Ainsworth, the military secretary, in his annual report states that the desertion from the army has grown so much that It Is the duty of tho govern ment to treat deserters as crimin als. He lays the desertion to the sentiment of the people who think the army of no use but at times of war. He recommends that all deserters be hunted down tho samo as murderers. REMOVE OFFICES. Dra.

STONEWALL JACKSON, WIDOW OF THE GREAT CONFEDERATE GEN ERAL, IN AN EXCLUSIVE ARTICLE FOR THIS NEWS PAPER. By Mrs. Thos. J. (Stonewall) (Written expressly lor this news paper. Copyright, 1905, by News paper Enterprise Association.) In President Roosevelt's itiner ary through the south he has prob ably made no more pleasing im pression anywhere than upon the town of Charlotte, N. C. Although his stop with us was all too brief (only 45 minutes), our people gave him a grand and en thusiastic welcome and ovation, and certainly ho captivated those who were fortunate enough to meet him by his own exceedingly cordial and gracious manner. I had been honored in being placed at the head of a delegation of ladies to receive Mrs. Roosevelt, and when I was presented to his excellency I was both surprised and overwhelmed at the warmth and exuberance of his greeting. He ex pressed so much admiration for my husband, and so much joy at meeting his wife —holding my hand so tenderly and yet reverently that my whole heart was deeply touched, and when he spoke of his pleasure in appointing my grandson to a cadetship at West Point, and com plimented him as "a splendid young fellow," he struck the tenderest chords of a very grateful heart. Yes, I am sure the president is all right—a large-hearted, good and great man. His noble tributes to Generals Lee and Jackson proved that he is of the true metal. The president's wife made as fa vorable an impression upon the ladies as any first lady of the land could, being cultured and gracious, womanly and responsive to all the eager attention showered upon her. It was lovely to see how the ladles and children crowded around her, and how kindly and sweetly she re ceived them. My faithful old cook was perhaps the most elated person in the par lor of my simple little home as she handed the first lady of the land a glass of water, and she told mc afterward that "We was the bon tonest-folks In town, as nobody else had the president's wife in their houses." It made all Charlotte happy to have this brief and inspiring visit from the president and his charm ing wife, and especially was the town delighted when he affirmed his belief in the genuineness of the Mecklenburg declaration of in dependence. Our people think now, with such distinguished and un questioned indorsement, that no one can ever doubt that Mecklen burg county did declare her inde pendence against Great Britain on the 20th of May, 1775. May his excellency long live to be a blessing and a power for good to this grand country of ours. AMERICAN WILL BE A MIXTURE OF ALL RACES WASHINGTON, D. C , Oct. 30 — Declaring that the amalgamation of all races Is Gods solution of the race problem. Bishop Hamilton, of San Francisco, created a sensation in Methodist circles in his address on the race problem delivered bo- Tore the Methodist bishops in the Metropolitan church. "What does God care for the col or of a man's face?" he asked. "I wnnt to say that the typical Ameri can is to be born of the amalga mation of all races that now in habit the continent. You who listen to me-'-many of you very proud of your 'Anglo-Saxon blood' —will be grand parents or great grand parents of men and women partly Chinese and Japanese. Rus sian, Jew, Southern European and dusky African. It is God's plan. What account does he take of the prejudices and follies of foolish man? In time they will be wiped away, and the American of the futuro will have become a composite type of all races." Some of the auditors left the church in indignation.

STONEWALL JACKSON WAS TAKEN A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, BUT IS THE LAST SHE SAT FOR. A Russian Story That Ended With the Requiescat of the Priest. By Mrs. H. V. S. In a cottage in one of the small Russian hamlets, not far distant from the great capital of the em pire, there sat an old woman in a thoughtful attitude, looking out of the window upon a snowy waste sprinkled with houses, out of which spiral curls of smoke rose in the frosty (>vening air. The old woman smoothed the wavy, golden locks of a young girl. "My daughter," she said, "I was thinking of Jaromir, and that he should come tonight; 1 hope he will come hither no more." "Anil why, mother?" cried the maiden, starting up. "Because I have forbidden him, Ivanowa." The young girl looked into her mother's face a moment with an expression of surprise amounting to terror, ami then turned away and covered her face with her hands "Thou art not weeping my child.'" said the mother.

When the photographer took a picture of the assembled crowd, the president stood beside the old colored woman. listen to me. Dost thou remember tho prophecy of the old gypsy of the cave ?" "That I should be the greatest and highest lady in the land?" "Even so." "Hut Jaromir loveth me." "Last night in my dream I saw again the gypsy," said the mother. "She held a crown In her hand and said to me; 'It is for Ivanowa.'" The young girl only murmured In reply, "Jaromir loveth me, and I — love Jaromir." He was the handsomest, the bravest, and the lightest-hearted young huntsman attendant upon the grand prince So far was hla station above that of the widow Maria and her fair daughter that none of the damsels in the hamlet, who envied her surpassing beauty, would believe that the prince's huntsman meant to wed the por tionless girl. The widow was visionary and ambitious, but sho loved her fair daughter beyond all things on the earth; and when Jaromir Wan OVa knelt at her feet to own their love and implore her blessing on their union, and she saw that heav en had formed them in their youth ful beauty for each other, her op position gave way; she forgot the gypsy's predictions, and stretching out her hands in blessing, wept tears of tenderness on the sweet maiden's head. The sun was shining brightly on a morning in early summer. A procession of the fairest damsels of the hamlet, attended by young men, all in holiday attire, was on its way to the church, where the solemn betrothal of aJromir and Ivanowa was to take place. Two young girls at her side bore garlands of flowers, and the widow Maria followed. Suddenly the shrill blast of a trumpet was heard. Four or five horsemen rode up in some confu sion; they were laughing and shout ing, having outrode their compan ions in pursualt of a falcon. The wayward bird was In advance of them; he wheeled rapidly round several times, and, Just as the pur suers came up, had alighted on the wrist of the bride. While her young companions gathered round to admire the noble and fearless creature, more horse men joined the group. "Ha, my truant bird!" cried the grand prince, and, alighting, he held out his hand, that the falcon might, perch upon his wrist. But his eyes were fastened on Ivanowa. "Who is the young girl?" asked the sovereign, turning from one of his attendants to another; but none answered till Jaromlr spoke. "So please your highness, It is my betrothed, Ivanowa, the daugh ter of Maria, the widow." "It is well, Jaromir," said the grand prince. "But you must come with us." To dispute the will of the sov ereign would have been high trea son. Tho young huntsman was compelled to leave his young bride and depart with the royal party. Three days after, Ivanowa and her mother were summoned to court by a special order from the grand prince. aJromir had not re turned. None save the secret agents of the sovereign knew that he lan guished in solitary Imprisonment, while his betrothed bride was pro claimed throughout the city as the chosen wife of the grand prince, pointed out by the will of heaven itself —indicated by the flight of tho falcon —as her who was to share the throne of the empire. Magnificent beyond description was the next bridal pageant, in which Ivanowa moved as the prin cipal personage, while the proudest noblest of the land gazed in admir ation upon her unrivaled and won drous beauty. But her face was pale as marble. More than a year had passed. In an apartment of the royal abode a wasted figure reclined on a couch, surrounded with luxury and elab orate adornment which somethimes seem a more sad mockery of ill ness and pain than would be the humblest dwelling of poverty. Two or three attendants moved softly to and fro, and one had taken her station by tho side of the couch to watch the slumbering sufferer. It was the grand princess—she who had been so lately a bride —who now lay upon the bed of death. All at once a slight convulsion passed over her pallid features; she opened her eyes, raised her thin, wasted hand slowly, and pointed to the door. "It is the priest." "La* him enter!" was the an swer, and the holy man approached the dying. He stood silent a mo ment, then, bending over her, whis pered in her ear the single word, "Ivanowa." A bright flush illuminated for an instant the face of the princess; a light came into her eyes. "Thou art come at last." she murmured, faintly; "my spirit sum moned thee, Jaromir. Farewell, Jaromlr!" "We shall meet In heaven!" said the priest. TSXASUBT DEPARTMENT Office of Comptroller of the Currency. Washington, September 30, 1905.
