The news, which has just reached the state department from Havana, to the effect that General Rlias has ae cured the negotiation of a reciprocal treaty with Cnba along the lines out lined in Washington, constitutes an. - other triumph for the Roosevelt ad ministration, especially , as the presi dent has secured from several sena tors formerly'opnosed to the policy, their pledges to vote for the ratifica tion of the treaty when it is sent to the senate. By virtue of the treaty, which will, soon reach Washington, the United States will secure a prac tical monopoly of the products of the Cuban markets for those manufac tures and products of which she has a surplus to dispose, and will give in re turn merely a discount of 20 per cent, from the Dingley schedules on im ports from Cuba. The probable appointment of Mr. Lloyd C. Griscom, now minister to Persia, to succeed Mr. Buck, minis ter to Japan, who has resigned, is re garded with satisfaction by the friends of the administration as it is believed the appointment will serve to ce ment the friendship between Senator Hanna and the president. Senator Hanna originally recommended Mr. Griscom for the Persian post and has been anxious to secure for him a mer ited promotion which the Japanese assign tnent will be. Mr. Roosevelt first appointed Mr. John Barret, now minister to Siain, to the post at Tokyo but, learning that certain public ut terances of Mr. Barret had offended the Japanese court, instructed Secre tary Hay to advise the iormer that it might be well for him to decline the appointment. Another promotion will probably be found for him in the near future. President Roosevelt is watching closely the Venezuelan situation and will, in the event that either Germany or Great Britain attempt to infringe upon the Monroe Doctrine, enter a prompt protest. So long however, as these nations make no effort at terri torial acquisition there will be no in terference on the part of the United States. In the meantime, Mr. Bowen, United State minister at Caracas, has shown the utmost friendliness and im partiality to all concerned, has secur ed the release of the consuls and citi zens of the aggressive powers and has made known to the state department the desire of President Castro to sub mit all differences to arbitration, which desire the state department has communicated to the nations involved. It is hoped and believed that the con servatism of Great Britain will re strain the pugnacity of Germany and that a solution of the difficulty will be arrived at without interference from Washington. tfi sf; Jjc The trust situation in the house of representatives has changed some what since last week's letter was writ ten. The conservative element in the senate has made it known that it will oppose anything in the nature of a drastic anti-trust bill and for that rea son Chairman Jenkins, of the judici ary committee, is now engaged in the attempt to draft a bill which, while it carries out the wishes of the president, will not meet with fatal opposition in the upper chamber. Meanwhjle, The special edition of the Scientific American, devoted to transportation on land and sea, cannot fail to attract widespread interest, both because of the very handsome manner in which it is gotten up a :d on account of the voluminous am .tut of information that it contains. It is safe to say that anyone that reads it carefully through will find himself thoroughly posted both as to the magnitude and high quality of our railroads. The Scien tific American has its own character istic way of presenting what some peo ple might call dry statistical matter in an interesting form, and the pres ent number is no exception to the rule. Both artist and editor have col laborated to certainly very good effect, and we believe the number will meet everywhere with a hearty reception. Coughing- Spall Cauwd Death. "Harry Duckwell, aged 25 years, choked to death early yesterday morning at his home, in the presence of his wife and child. He contracted a slight cold a few days ago and paid but little attention to it, Yesterday morning he was seized with a fit of coughing which continued for some time. His wife sent for a physician but before he could arrive, another coughing spell came on and Duckwell died from suffocation. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Dec. 1, 1901." Bal lard's Horehoond Syrop would have saved him. 25c, 50c and $1 at W. R. Barton's. there is strong prospeot that the Hep burn bill which appropriates (500,000 to enable the attorney general to pros ecute the trusts under the Sherman law will be passed by both chambers. Both houses of congress have passed the bill appropriating $50,000 for the salaries and expenses of the anthra cite coal strike commission. There was some objection on the part of the democrats and some republicans de sired to so amend the bill as to make it clear that congress did not wish to establish a precedent but the general feeling of gratitude to the president prevented any serious opposition. So far, the territorial fight in the senate has been put off although the bill will be taken up soon. Senator Quay has yielded none of his deter mination to secure the admission of the three territories but Senator Bev eridge and his supporters, who form a majority of the republican senators, are equally determined on their part, The fate of the bill doubtless depends on the efficiency of generalship with which each side conducts his forces through the mazes of parliementary obstacles and a wrong turn at any moment may mean defeat for one side or the other. Chairman Coopev of the house com mittee on Philippine insular affairs tells your correspondo:it that he ex pects the committee to authorize a bill providing for the old standard in the islands before the close of this week. He says three fourths of the present commerce of the islands is carried on with gold and he does not anticipate any serious effect from a chanse of standard. Replying to a question as to why it would be neces sary to provide a subsidiary coinage instead of immediately substituting American money, Mr. Cooper said that those who had studied the ques tion reported that it would be practi cally impossible to convince the ignor ant natives that the American dollar of the same size and weight wa3 worth double the dollar he had been in the habit of receiving and that the at tempt would make trouble. For that reason it was deemed wise to provide a subsidiary coinage which would be gradually withdrawn from circulation as the natives become accustomed to the American dollar. Certain correspondents, evidently searching the sensational, have sent bioadcast a story to the effect that the president intends to relegate the por traits of former occupants of the White House to the basement. As a matter of fact, these portraits are to be hung in the main corridor of what was formerly the basement but what is to become virtually the first floor. The new corridor will be the one along which will pass all guests at presidential receptions, and in which the "line" will be formed on ceremo nial occasions. The fact that the por trait of Mrs. Roosevelt, recently paint ed by Chartran, is to be hung there should be sufficient evidence that Mr. Roosevelt is treating with no disre spect the likenesses of his predeces- mi f . n "It sors. Tne new nrst noor corridor win be handsomely finished and will re semble in many respects, the halls of old English country houses. kLKtin. I 3 ..M-a eitnnnert Atr I He Found Core. R. H.

CImm, Fresh and Fragrant WRECK ON THE HANNIBAL Three Killed and Several Mured at Yellow Creek Saturday Night. A fatal and very destructive wreck occurred on the Hannibal at East Yellow creek between Bucklin and St. Catherine last Saturday night. At nine o'clock a couslruction train equipped with the big steam derrick and tool car pushed by au engine and it followed by a way car, left Brook- field tox clean up a small wreck at Bucklin. The train was going at a high rate of speed and when Yellow creek bridge was reached the crane of the derrick caught the superstructure tearing the whole bridge .iway letting the tool car and engine into the creek, The derrick was pushed o.i across but turned over just at the east end of the bridge. Roadmaster Murphy, Arthur Hy att, engineer of the derrick; and Thomas Ainsworth were killed and a number of others injured. ' Engineer Goode and Fireman Ureen went clown with their engine to the bottom of the creek and both escaped with only slight bruises. Revolution Iininiii.nt.
