COLORADO SUGAR FACTORIES WILL MARKET THEIR PRODUCT Denver, Nov. 2.—The News, in a re view of the beet sugar situation, says: “High-class granulated sugar is be ing placed on the market In Colorado at 94-80 per 100 pounds. This sugar comes from Colorado factories and Is supplied largely by the Independent companies, whose plants are now In active operation. The sugar ia not be ing placed in warehouses, as was ex pected a very short time ago, but is shipped by the carload to principal points of distribution. The anoancement cannot fall to be received with special gratification by thousands of farmers who have con scientiously entered upon the culture of the sugar beet, and who were alarmed a few weeks ago by the news that the trust had lowered the price of sugar to 3& cents. This price meant that the Colorado plants would be op erated at & loss and farmers would be obliged to enter Into new contracts at lower rates with the sugar companies as soon as present contracts expire. Thanks to the united front presented by the beet sugar men and also to a quiet tip from Washington, the sugar trust came to a conclusion that it bad too big a fight upon its hands, and suddenly receded from its arrogant at titude. The price of sugar at the Mis souri river was advanced by the trust 4 cents and the trust did not attempt to carry the war into the Rocky moun tain region. President Roosevelt’s ut terance in favor of borne Industry as sisted in clearing the situation, and, although the rate is not back exactly to the figures which were quoted be fore the trust threw down the gaunt let, the conditions are so far relieved that the men of large capital who are Interested in the sugar Industry In Col orado have confidence in the final out COMMISSIONER HERRMANN WOULD AMEND LAND LAWS Washington. Nov. 2.—The annual re port of Commissioner Horinnnu, of the general land office, says that 15,502,- 790 acres of public land were disced of during the lust fiscal year, au In crease of 2,1(18,908 over the previous year, which was the Imniier year in public laud sah*s. The net surplus from the cut Ire land and forest admin istration is $3,458,442. The rejwrt refers to the large number of prosecutions begun in Idaho and Montana for perjury and subornation of perjury in entries of land under the timber and stone act, which entries, It sas's, apparently were mnde for speculative purport's and have become the i>roj>orty of one man. This person, who is not mentioned by name, main tains that he purchased the land in good faith and without knowledge that the entries were invalid. The commissioner says that if this is true cancellation proceedings by the general land office would entail much hurdshlp. He says, therefore, that the law should be repealed to protect inuoceut persons who may invest money In lands to which the persons shown by the re cords to be owners have no lawful title. Recomendatlous for legislation are: Repeal or modification of the act of Juno 16th, 1898, to protect homestead settlers who enter the military or naval service in war time; compulsory at tendance of witnesses at hearings of reports of special land grants involv ing the validity of entries of public land; repeal of several laws relating BRITISH MEET WITH SERIOUS REVERSES London, Nov. 2.—Lord Kitchener’s re|K>rt of nnother disaster to the Brit ish army in South Africa lias caused a sensation In London, and there Is a fooling that the disaster Is greator than the dispatches so far, which arc all official, outline. The Boors in onstern Transvaal seem to have rushed Colonel Bensou’s column, inflicting n loss of two guns, ten officers including Colonel Benson, and fifty-four men killed and 100 non commissioned officers and men wound ed. Four of the latter have since died. It Is believed now that every man available will be sent to South Africa. Following is the text of Lord Kitch ener’s dispatch: “I have Just heard of a severe at tack made on the rear guard of Colonel Benson’s column when about twenty miles northwest of Bethel, near Bro ken Lnagte, during a thick mist. “The strength of the enemy is re ported to have been a thousand. They rushed two guns with the rear guard, but it is uncertain whether they were able to remove them. “I fear our casualties are heavy. Colonel Benson was wounded, but not seriously. A relieving column will reach him this morning.” Later Lord Kitchener telegraphed as follows: “Colonel Barter, who marched from the constabulary line yesterday, reached Benson’s column early this morning (Friday) unopposed. lie re ports that Colonel Benson died of bis wounds.” New Jersey's Pure Food Law. New York, Nov. 2.—What Is said to be the strictest pure food law In the United States ~ went Into effect In New Jersey yesterday. Everything that can come Into use for human consumption as food or drink Is in cluded under the law. The inspection will even take in canned goods. It does not matter whether these or any thing else is manufactured or put up outside of the state or in it, they are liable to come under the ban of the law if the analysis shows them to be unfit for human food.

While all danger is not passed sod while the trust will undoubtedly make a hard fight In Congress for the removal of the tariff on sugar from Cuba and Porto Rico, It is not believed that the trust will have Its way entire ly. Thla Is the opinion expressed by competent Colorado men. The atmosphere is clearing and the contracts signed for additional factor ies at Greeley and Eaton, and the great Increase In capacity of plants in the valley of the Arkansas Indicate which way the wind la blowing. It is estimated that Colorado will call for 35,000,000 pounds of sugar for the twelve months now entered upon. The total estimated sugar product of the four large factories now operating in the state will exceed this amount. The question of market for the surplus sugar Is one to be decided and sugar men say the market must be In the region of the Missouri river. There the factories of Colorado come into direct contact with the trust made sugar and there the battle royal must be fought out. The cool heads in charge of the financial departments of the Colorado plants are now seriously considering the problem. In the meantime the main part of this year's product will be placed on the market. C. M. Cox, manager of the Eaton Sugar Company, whose plant is to be erected in the edge of the town of Eaton, this state, is in the city on business connected with the company. He says the plant will be capable of handling 700 tons of beets dally and will be absolutely up to date. The company has awarded the con tract for building the plant to the same company that Is building the plant at Loveland, and farmers have pledged 4,000 acres. to timelier and unreserved public lands, and the enactment of a general law to afford a supply of timber for settlers and other parties in need thereof, and at the same time preserve the forests for the use of future generations; ex tension of the forest tire act to meet the various causes of fires and over come the danger from every source; modification of the act permitting ex change of land within forest reserva tions for those without by a proviso that the relinquished tract lias not been unnecessarily exhausted; that the lands shall lie of approximately the same value, and rejecting such selec tions for land returned as agricultural. If before approval it is found to be mineral; withdrawal of all public lumls more valuable for forest uses than for other puriHises from settlement, entry, sale and other disiKisltiou, and holding them for the protection and utilization of their timber; establishment of na tional parks to preserve prehistoric ruins, petrified forests, caves aud for other purpose's; appropriation of at least $185,000 to prevent depredatious upon public timlier and for protection of public lands from unlawful entry or appropriation, and SIO,OOO to protect timber on unreserved lands against tires; proteetlon of fish and game In forest reserves; relief of bona tide set tlers within forest reserves who set tled prior to the establishment thereof, but who failed from ignoranee or from unavoidable accident to place their claims on record within the statutory period. COLORADO CHILDREN AT PASTEUR INSTITUTE Chicago. Nov. 2.—Eight children, ac companied by their parents, ended a 1,500 mile raco for life last eveuing at the Chicago Pasteur Institute. Another child will arrive to-day. The young sters, ranging In age from 4 to 9 years, came from Colorado Springs, where they were bitten last Bunday by a dog afflicted with rabies. Fearing hy drophobia. their parents began the long Journey to have the children treat ed. The victims were met at the in stitute by Dr. A. Logorio, who admin istered the first Injection of serum. To Insure success Dr. Logorio prefers to administer the first treatment within five days of the time the bite was in flicted.

His patients were: Charles Gregory, Catherine Lamb, Nellie, Chester and Margaret McAul iffe and Agnes Vanderverter and Hazel Meech. The victims are children of mechan ics employed in Colorado Springs. The animal which caused the trouble was a little black and tan dog owned by Mrs. E. F. McAullffe. German Temperance Society. New York, Nov. 2.—A dispatch to the London Times and the New York Times from Berlin says the society for combatting the use of spirituous liquors has begun a conference at Ber lin.

EFFICIENT HARBOR DEFENSES AT ALL THE PRINCIPAL PORTS Washington, Nov. l-Twenty-five of the priucipal harbors of the United States now have a sufficient number or heavy guns and mortars mounted to permit of effective defense against naval attack, says General Gillespie, chief of engineers, in his annutl re port He briefly describes the origin al project framed by the tndicott board for the coast defense and shows how it has been amended from year to year. The improvements were the change of rapid firing guns and the elimination of armored defense. I re vision has been made for emplacing 825 heavy guns, 327 rapid-fire guns and 370 mortars. A Now General Gillespie wants sites for more new mortar batteries and for gun and mortar batteries, and asks an appropriation of *4,0Q0,000. The forti fications board having declared pneu matic gun batteries obsolete, the de partment has discontinued the work on such batteries at Fisher’s island and Port Royal.

With few exceptions these sites must be procured by con demnation. An estimate of *2,000,000 FRANCE TO THREATEN TURKEY WITH A FLEET OF WAR SHIPS Paris, Nov. 1.-The officials of the French foreign office confirm the re port that a division of the French Med iterranean fleet, composed of three bat tleships and two cruisers, under the command of Admiral Calllard, lias pro ceeded from Toulon to the Levant to make a naval demonstration against Turkey. The demand upon demand for proper Indemnity in all French claims is to be urged in*a forcible manner. Admiral Caillard carries sealed orders. While one division of the fleet put in at Salins-d'llieres, another, composed of three battleships and two cruisers, proceeded to tlie Levant. Two thou sand troops will be added to this force. A foreign office official, in communi cating tlie foregoing to the correspond ent of the Associated Press, said: "The squadron sailed with sealed or ders, and proceeds first to a Greek port, the island of Syra, I think, whore the admiral will receive definite instruc tions as to carrying out his scaled or ders. I am not at liberty to say what the sealed orders are, but the seizure of the customs at Smyrna would prob ably be a very effective way of con vincing the Sultan that France’s pa tience is exhausted and that we have decided to enforce an immediate exe cution of the Turkish government's en gagements. We. however, are very hopeful that the Sultan will not comj>el us to go to that extreme.” “Our squadron will not reach the Greek port before Sunday. The Turk ish government lias thus three days’ grace, and we trust in the mean time to receive complete satisfac tion. We have acted very consul WAS ANGELL BURNED? IS WHAT WOODMEN ASK Denver, Nov. I.—The Woodmen of the World and the Modern Woodmen of America are now engaged in at tempting to ferret out the mystery of the disappearance of G. E. Angeli, who was Insured in these orders for *4.000. Some three weeks ago E. G. Augell, who with his wife conducted the Mid way house on the stage road between Grand Junction and Whitewater, was supposed to have been burned to deatli in the building. The hotel was a frail structure, underneath which was a kennel. Mrs. Angeli was found one monring beside the smouldering ruins, appealing for assistance and declaring her husband had perished in the flames Ten hours after the fire the neighbors found among the ruins a collection of l>ones, but the skull was not there. Physicians differed as to whether the bones were those of a human being or not, and Dr. J. N. Hall of this city a Woodman and an expert anatomist, was sent to investigate. His report states “there was not a human bone in the pile,” which in his opinion were the bones of animals carried there by dogs. Footprints like Angell’s in ob scure portions of the neighborhood were followed but the trail was lost. Angel was a member of camp No. 380, Woodmen of the World, at White water and of Western slope camp of the Modern Woodmen, in each of which he carried $2,000 insurance. His residence and its contents were insured with the Continental Insurance Com pany. On the day previous to the fire Angeli is reported to have drawn out all the money he had in a local bank. On that day he is also said to have carried a large revolver, which was not found in the ruins. No trace of Angeli lias yet been found. THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS SUPPRESSED Washington, Nov. I.—lt Is learned that the original and unpublished report of Admiral Schley of the battle off Santiago to Admiral Samp son, referred to in the proceedings be fore the court of inquiry Thursday, was of a preliminary character, and differed from that subsequently made In that it omitted mention altogether of the cruiser New York, and that It also requested that the latter (Admiral Sampson) have the commanding offi cers or captains of the vessels engaged transmit to him (Schley) their detailed accounts of the action, in order that Pan-American Congress. Mexico City, Nov. I.—The Pan-Amer ican Congress lias appointed the fol lowing committees: Arbitration and court of arbitration, nine members; water transportation, seven members; commerce and recip rocity. nine members: Pan-American tribunal of equity and claims, seven members: Pan-American railroad, nine members; reorganization bureau of American republics, five members: in ternal law,seven members; extradition and protection against annrt.diy, five members: Pan-American barking and monetary exchange, seven members; is submitted for the purchase of sites. For the construction of submarine mines and storage of facilities an esti mate of *IOO,OOO Is submitted and for searchlights appropriations of *500,000 for installation, and of *500,000 for mains and conduits are urgently rec ommended. The experience at New York has shown that economy in in stallation Is promoted by using the fortification plants for post illumina tion also. The estimates submitted will fully equip with searchlights four more importaua harbors. General Gillespie makes an extensive report upon river and harbor works and discusses each Improvement at considerable length besides submitting estimates for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1903. These estimates are from twenty-five to thirty-three and one-third per cent less, in some instances fifty per cent, less than those of the local engineers in charge of harbor and river improve ment. General Gillespie’s totals are a* follows: Under continuing contract*, *0,489,- 377; rivers and harbors (general), *12,- 543,000; examinations, surveys and contingencies, *300,000; under Cali fornia debris commission, *15,000; pre vention of deposits in New York* har bor, *70,200; enlargement of Gover nor’s island, New York, *500,000. Estimates are submlted by the Mis sissippi River commission and Mis souri River commission as follows: Mississippi commission *3,970,000; Mis souri River commission, *1,005,200. erately toward Turkey, hoping, up to the last moment, that she would carry out her engagements, and it is only now, when we find that there is no se rious indication of her doing so, that we have reluctantly resolved to put stronger pressure to bear in the shape of a naval demonstration. It is now two months since the French ambassa dor, M. Constance, left Constantinople. Ills departure failed to produce the de sired effect. On the contrary, even the quays and Tubini questions, which were settled by the Sultan’s irades, re main unsatisfied.” The officio! was asked what would happen in the event of the French squadron being ordered to seize the customs and if the Turkish authorities resisted, and lie replied: “That Is a very unlikely contingency; •but if it occurs I suppose we shall have to bombard the port. We do not want bloodshed, and I do not believe there will be any occasion for it.” Paris, Nov. I.—Late last night the following dispatch was received from Toulon: “The complete Mediterranean squad ron returned to Toulon this evening and anchored in the roadstead." Tills would include Admiral Cail lard’s division, whose departure lias thus either been countermanded or postponed. If the dispatch be correct, it would imply that the government lias received news from Constantinople since morning which lias not yet been divulged, and which has induced a change of plan. The Marseilles correspondents of the Matin say the return was due to the fact tlint the squadron was supplied with only two days' rations. lie might write a full and complete report of the battle. The suppressed preliminary report made by Admiral Schley is dated "Off Santiago, July 3,” ami is addressed to Admiral Sampson, commander-in-chief of the North Atlantic station. The re- I>ort in substance describes the com ing out of the Spanish fleet from the harbor of Santiago, and calls attention to the fact that signals were made to the vessels of the American fleet, which were obeyed by all the ships. It then proceeds to describe the fight and gives briefly the part played in it by each one of the ships, showing that the Brooklyn, the Oregon, the Texas and the lowa remained in action until the Vlscaya went ashore, and that the Colon surrendered to the Brooklyn and the Oregon. The admiral commends the bravery of all the American officers and crews engaged in the fight, and recommends the commanding officers for gallant and meritorious conduct and sqperb handling of their ships. Then follows some routine matter giving the Span ish losses, the injuries to the American fleet nnd the casualties. It then asks that Admiral Sampson have the com manding officers transmit to him (Ad miral Schley) their detailed account of the action, in order that he might write a full nnd complete official re port of the battle. Right of Way Second. Denver, Nov.. I.—A Loveland special to the Denver Republican states that rights of way have been secured and the survey lias been completed for about twenty-five miles of electric rail way, which will be built and operated in Larimer and Weld counties by the Great Western Construction Company. The line will stnrt at the Loveland sugar factory, running several miles due east, and thence turning to the southeast, and circle around east of ‘Twin mound, and thence w-est to Ber thoud. The special purpose of the road will be to render accessible to the sugar factory a large area of beet land that for want of transportation facilities is not now available. Much of the choice beet land of this section lies along the line of this proposed railway. Switches at convenient dis tances for loading beets will be put in so as to facilitate shipments. The work of grading will begin in a short time, nnd it is expected to have the road in operation during the early part of next summer.
