NOYEB TALKS BACK ALASKA FGJERAL JUDGE MAKES REPLY TO THE CHARGES AGAINST HIM DENIAL OF EVERY COUNT Says He Had So Communication With Either McKenzie or Chipps Ilegnrding Litigation Be fore the Court. WASHINGTON, Aug. The depart ment of Justice today made public the answer of Judge Arthur H. Noyes to the charges prefened against him in the ad ministration of his office of United State 3 district judge at Nome, Alaska. Judge Noyes details the story of his trip to Alaska, giving an account of the ac quaintances made upon that Journey, more particularly the acquaintance of Messrs. McKenzie and Chipps, who have figured so largely In connection with the charges against the Judge, and denies that he had any communication with either of these gentlemen with respect to the business of his court on his Journey or at any other time. He takes up in detail the various charges against him, and specifically denies each and every allegation tnereof. He describes the chaotic conditions existing at Noma at the time of his ai rival, wherein he states he found in the neighborhood of 20,000 people of all classes, and the ut most confusion and disorder prevailing. He sets out that every lot of ground in the whole town had two or more claim ants, that possession was held In a great many Instances by armed force, and that he was besieged upon every hand imme diately upon his arrival by parties seek ing relief against those whom they claimed to be wrongfully and unlawfully In possession of their property, divesting it of value and shipping the proceeds out of the country and the jurisdiction of the court. He then details his efforts to organize his court and the importunities to which he was subjected by litigants and coun sel, and describes favors that were at tempted to be thrust upon him by solic itous individuals. APPOINTMENT OF M KENZIE. He recounts the circumstances under which he appointed Alexander McKen zie receiver of certain mining claims, al leging that it had not been prearranged that McKenzie should act as receiver, but that McKenz'e's name was suggest ed along with others, to one of whom the place had been tendered before It was offered to McKenzie. The judge reaffirms the wisdom of that choice and compli ments McKenzle's administration of the property. Defending his appointment as receiver for the placer mining claims, he denies that he first suggested that remedy and justifies his action upon the ground that there were scattered alorg the beach thou sands of unemployed men who had been lured to Nome by the fabulous tales of wealth, which had been given out and predicated upon the result of the workings of the previous year; that these men were unemployed, wi:hout food or money and desperate, and that to have closed down by Injunction the operation of the placer claims would have been to have added largely to the number of unem ployed ln the camp. He says that he followed In this respect the precedents established by former judges of the dis trict of Alaska, and adds copies of a de cree In a similar case. He admits that in most cases where he appointed re ceivers the representations made to the court were largely untrue as to the ca pabilities of the mines. This, however, was not determined until later, and his action was predicated upon the fairness of the presentation of the case. This, he says, accounted for the comparative ly excessive expense of operation by the receivers. He also claims that as an ad ditional precaution for the protection of the parties in; interest, he required In all cases, when either of the parties re quested It, that the gold dust realized by the receiver should be deposited at the safe deposit vault, not subject to with drawal except by order of the court with notice to the parties interested, and also, that he further ordered ln each case, when requested, that all parties having any interest or claiming Interest in the' property might at any time go upon the property worked by the receiver for the purpose of observing the work, and might be present at each and every cleaning up made by the receiver, and that he, ln every way possible, tried to throw every safeguard about th© property in the hands of the receiver; that it might be conserved for the benefit of the party who might finally be adjudged its owner. HAWAIIAN* WAV!" PROTECTION. Petition Congress to Impose a Duty on Coffee Imports. WASHINGTON.

WAIT ON THE STRIKE HESITANCY SHOW'S IX SOME LINES OF TRADE BECAUSE OF STEEL SITUATION** GENERAL BUSINESS IS GOOD Grain Prices, Especially for Corn, Hold at High Level—Shoe Trade Ha»i Improve Woolen Mur het In Better Shape NEW YORK, Aug. 9.— R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade tomorrow will say: There is no complaint from any part of the country over the volume of. current distribution of merchandise and what hesitation is observed in gen eral trade is chiefly due to the uncertain ty as to the duration of the labor troubles in the steel manufacture. Col lections continue good, better weather has helped the agricultural classes, money Is easy and stocks of merchandise carried are not above the average for this season of year, particularly in the West and Southwest. Relief is felt In all departments of the Iron and steel Industry now that uncer tainty is ended and the pos.tlon of tho contestants made clear. Now the issue must be determined permanently, and a settled condition will greatly facilitate operations. Structural, wire and plate mills are not affected, and the produc tion of rails will not be- materially cur tailed. Supplies of bars and tubes will be restricted, and quotations In these lines tend to follow the-advance already secured for sheets and hoops. A bM feature Is the Increased Importation of tin plates, which had been manufactured In sufficient quantity to about meet the domestic demand, Imports in the last fiscal year being valued at only J3.770, --002. against $35,746,920 ten years ago. Pur chasers of many forms of finished steel are showing much eagerness to place contracts, while, on the other hand, pig iron is in less urgent request. Having no further ammunition in heat | and drought reports for hoisting prices, j speculators have turned suddenly to the ' Dther extreme and demonstrate that early frosts threaten alt late planted corn. The result has been a spot quo tation at this city of more than to cents ill the week and the practical elimina tion of exporters from domestic mar kets. A heavy demand from domestic millers and phenomenal Atlantic ex ports give strength to prices of wheat. As the season advances it becomes more apparent that foreign crop losses will necessitate unprecedented shipments from the United States and with the settlement of the strike on the Pacific •oast there will be a movement of great magnitude. Eastern shoe manufacturers find con ditions as favorable as last week, while reports from the West are still better. | Orders from the drought-affected regions are no longer countermanded and earlier ' cancellations are being; restored. Leather Is steady and no alteration in prices is ! anticipated. Prospects continue to Improve In the j market for woolen goods, and as the j manufacturer enjoys greater activity : prices for raw material are hardening. \ Little change Is seen in actual sales, but ! there is a growing disposition to hold for the better terms that many In the trade ! consider Inevitable. Cotton goods are I quiet and weak. j "Failures for. the week were 173 In the j United States, against 177 last year, and i 11 in Canada, against 23 last year. 1 WEEK IX WALL STREET. On the Whole Stocks Show Some- what Greater . Strength. NEW-. YORK, .Aug. 9.—Bradstreet's financial review tomorrow will say: Strength and speculative confidence re appeared In the stock market after the middle of the week, accompanied by an increase in the activity. The change ln this respect was the more striking be cause the week opened with a very de pressed feeling in the stock exchange circles, and prices for several days de clined,- in some cases In a decided man ner,, ..The unexpected ending of last Saturday's conference between the heads 61 the Amalgamated association of steel workers, and the United States Steel corporation m a disagreement, and the announcement by the labor union that there would be a- general strike instead of the pacification of the existing trouble Was calculated to have demoralizing ef fect upon a market which had already experienced a liquidation and decline on the damage to. the corn crop and the strike. Bearish feelings consequently predominated when the market opened last Monday and there was heavy sell- ' ing for both long and shorts In the steel stocks. Nevertheless, after a time It was seen that the United States Steel stocks j were receiving powerful support at about 40 for the common and below 90 for the preferred. Doubts were also cast on the ability of the labor union ' leaders to make good their threats of closing the majority of the pla-nts of the steel cor poration and their course in first stating that the general strike order would not be issued for a week and then sending it out forthwith, produced an impression of weakness on their part. This was fol lowed by news that the steel corporation was promptly putting Into execution Its plan of opening, one by one, Its non union mills which had been shut down, and that thus far the plan had been com pletely successful. On this the steel stocks hardened and on Thursday rumors that there were re newed reports of a* settlement caused sharp advances In United States Steel shares, the common rising to 43 and the preferred to 92. This movement would have natura'ly caused sharp advances In United States SteeL to cover shorts, and in the general market, but the railroad list was also influenced in a bullish way by Inde pendent factors. The chief of these was the better view the street takes of the corn crop situation. Actual Improve- I ment in the.corn outlook is on the whole i slight and it ls generally thought to day's government crop report will be gloomy as regards the probable total ', yield of corn. On the other hand, the , very favorable conditions in regard to the : wheat harvest have assumed greater I prominence, and the fact, insisted on by many'authorities, that the West and its railroads are not entirely dependent on the corn crop for prosperity, Is accorded due* weight. ?/„ .'.-: BANK CLEARINGS.
