"7 'tip; an Increaas In grain r1'i la going to b mad". The markets show that no In cree baa been made aa yt, however, er.d that the rport of one did not Rain general circulation. December wheat sold at 7 high and Mar wheat soared to sell ing price of 77Vi to i. the aeason'a top notrh. December corn went at 5V. but Mar forn aiar4 at 43'4. "Had thla rumor penetrated the pita and reached the wires there would have Ween a eonalderahle slump In the market, rrou can depend oa that; that la, of course. If the rumor wti known to hare come from th sources It did. Of rnurae no mere goa- lalp rumor, aurh aa are floating around II the time, would hare had aurh an ef fect. I look for a change in the market toow, that thla matter haa reached a point whers It will be given general circulation. ,It will come aa a great surprise, I think, 'to manr centera, though there haa been 'some such auaplclon for aoroe tlma.". Asked what effect In figures thla inoresss would probably have on the marketa, Mr. Walsh expressed the opinion that It would lower wheat 10 cents and cornS. He ssld lie would not be surprised to see wheat drop aa low aa 70 aa a rcault. MITCHELL'S ORDEAL IS OVER (Continued from Flrat Pago.) Jwo cuhlc feet until they varied from eighty to ninety-two feet. In moving the car from the breaat of the mine to the shaft, there waa a 6 per rent shake down. "Bo that thla meaaurement," Inquired Mr. Rarow, "glvea the dishonest miner the aame wages as the miner who loaded fcta car carefully?" Bubaequent examination brought the fact that the miner who : put more than alx inchea of topping" on hla car received bo additional compensation. Anawering a question by Mr. Watklna, Dr. Roberta aald an effort had been made by the Individual operators to Import cheap labor Into the fields. "It waa done," aald he. "through ship ping agenta, who got men In New York to watch the vessels coming In and turned the current of Immigration that la, the Blav Immigration, Into the coal fields." Mr. Roberta compared Blav standard of living with that of the native-bora Amer ican and ahowed It to be far below. Few of the miners' children, he said, attend school after they have paaaed the age of 14. He declared that a miner's work was mora rlaky than that of men In any other large Industry, there being more deatha In the mines than on the railroads, but fower accident. I'alsn Aid Morality. "Hare you noticed the effect of saloons on minors?" .waa the next question. "The number of saloons In Schuylkill county has decreased," was the reply, "and the consensus of opinion la that It is due largely to the miners' union." He also oplnloncd that the social worth, manliness and Individuality of the Blav Iiad greatly Increased through the miners' tialon. "Under the conditions you have de scribed," Mr. Wolverton asked, "can there be any uniform standard of wages, apply ing to the whole coal region or to one col liery, that would da Justice to the employe and employer?" Witness replied that he did not know whether that could be done, but said that where Work was the same or nearly ao there was no reason why wages would be different. At this point the commission adjourned. World to End In Tea Years, This la the statement of a prominent divine In the west, who bases his claim on the prophecies of the bible.

MANY LOCAL INDIANS LOSE THEIR LIVES Deatractlna ( Property Worse Than Reported, CosTee Plaatatloaa Relas; of Aafces. SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 19. The first of the refugees from the devastated lands of Guatemala arrived hers today. They came from the Inland sea and traveled over a country laid waste by sand, ashes and pumice before reaching the railway. They called on November 7, when the volcano was still smoking, and the rumbling of thunder and flashes of lightning gavs evidence of more eruptions to come. These people fled from their plantations In fear far their Uvea." They iscaped to the sea side with little more than tha clothing they wore. They confirm the stories of lost lives, saying the victims for the most part were Indians, thoueands ot whom were asphyx iated or buried In the sand. Miles of plantations were under ashes and absolute ruin was the Io of many planters whose all was Invested In the flocas. They state that It was not the crater of Banta Maria that waa In action, but a smaller mountain rising from one of Ita western slopes called El Rosato. Robbers Loot and Kill. Bands of Mexican robbers were swarming the desolated regions, robbing and mur dering refugees on the road and looting the abandoned and desolate plantations. The people left behind were In danger of death from starvation, for the food supply bad been cut off and there was no way to send in supplies'. ' The steamer City of Para met evidences of the volcanic eruption soon after leav ing Ocos. Great quantities ot pumice were found floating on the water, some of them being about the size ot a man's head. The sea was covered with It. Off the coast of Guatemala the shore was burled' with a light ash. At Cbamperlco there was about half an Inch of ash. over the roofs of ths houses and the ground was covered, as though there had been a snowstorm. Ashes were then falling, although It waa sixteen daya after the first eruption. During the eight of Novembf-r 8, Just a few hours before City ot Tara sailed out of the port, loud rumblings of the earth were heard and heavy reports as of distant thunder came from the direction of the volcano. Word had been received from Maza- tenango, on the outskirts of the ruined territory, that on the evening of October 26 Santa Mara opened a crater on the west side near Its base and not far from Helvetia and all that night belched forth volumes of ashes and lava over Folhu. On Saturday morning It was seen that several more craters had opened and all were spouting volcanic debris. These fresh craters were further1 to the west and for over twenty-four hours were in constant eruption. ' The earth was' in continual commotion. shaking down buildings and causing much destruction. Ifo Hope for Plaatatloaa. All the territory about Palmer, San Felipe, Pueblo Nusvo and Retalquleu was buried under ashes .and all hope of ever reclaiming thtm.. had been given up. The whole neighborhood for. miles waa a burn ing wllderneai,',(. (- At Mazantenan'p, on the south side ot the volcano, only ashes had fallen and cot to such a great depth; consequently It waa posslbls to save aome of the plantation property. News from that town said that hundreds of refugees were collecting and many more were pushing on to places fur ther away. Many were without, bread or shelter and their condition waa pitiful. At that place most of the buildings had been 'badly damaged It not completely de stroyed by the earthquakes that accompa nied the eruptions. When the last word came from Mazantenango, fifteen daya after the. first eruption of Santa Maria, the earth had been constantly trembling. At Champerlco a modest estimate of the loss to the coffee crop places It at 400,000 centals. SPEAKS AT MEMPHIS (Continued from First Page.) were frantic, jumping up and down and yelling themselves hoarse. The president spoke briefly on ths need for good citizenship and at the close the entire audience of over 3,000 . united In singing "God Bb With You Until We Meet Again." In the evening the proceedings of the day were wound np by a banquet at whloh over too men were - present. Governor Longlno of Mississippi, who had traveled from Jackson, being among them. Replying to the toast of "Our Country," tbs president said: Compliments the South. It Is a real and great pleasure to corns to this typical city of the aouthern Missis sippi valley In order to greet a typical American, a citizen of Tennessee, who de serves honor not only from his state, but from the entire country General Luke K.

Ths argument ,on food are Interesting. Many peraona adopt- a vegetarian diet on tbs ground that they do not like to feel that Ufa has been taken to feed them, nor do they fancy the thought of eating dead meat. . ' . ' On the other , bafid,, too great consump tion of , partly cooked, starchy oats and wheat, or bread,, paatry etc., produces ssrjous bowel troubles, because the bewel dlgestlvs organs, (where starch ahould be dlgeated), are overtaxed and ths food fer ments, producing gaa, and microbes gener ate In ths decayed food, frequently bring ing on peritonitis and appendicitis. Starchy food Is absolutely essential to ths human body. Its best form Is shown In ths food "Grape-Nuts," .whers ths starch Is changed into grape sugar during ths process of Its manufacture.

Hardihood, and daring, and Iron resolution are of right to be expected among the sons of a state which nurtured Andrew Jackann and Psm Houston; which sent Into the American navy one of the most famous fighting ad mirals of all time, Karrsgut. Rennloa Is Complete. There Is another reason why cur countrv should be glad that It was (general Wright who render,! thla service, tlenernl Wright fought with distinguished gallantry among the gallant men a ho served In the armies of the confed'Tacy during the civil war. We need no proof of the completeness of our reunion as a people. When the war with Spain came the sons cf the men who wore the blue and the sons of the mn who wore the gray vied with one another In the effort to get into the ranks and face a foreign foe under the old flu that had been carried In triumph under Wlntleld Scott and Zachary TaWor and Andrew Jackson. It was my own good fortune to serve under that fearless hchter, old Joe Wheeler, a memory of which I shall al ways be proud. Hut If we needed any proof of the unity of our interests it would have afforded this very year by General Wright, the ex-confederate, In his administration as acting governor of the Philippine isl ands. L'pon him during the months of summer rested a heavier burden of re sponsibility than upon any other public servant at that pnrtleulat time;- and not ths least of his titles to our regard Is the way In which he was aMe to worn on terms of cordial good a'lll with the head of the army, himself a man who had honored the blue uniform aa Wright had honored ths gray. Cannot Escape Doty. General Wright's work has been ns diffi cult as It was Important. The events of the last four years have definitely decided that whether we wl.h to or not we muM hereafter p'ay a great part In the world. We can not escape facing the duties. We may shirk them If we are built of poor stuff, or we may take hold and do them If we are fit sons of our sires but face them we must, whether we will or not. Our duty In the Philippine Islands has simply been one of the duties that thus have come upon us. We are there, and we can no more haul down our flag and abandon the Inlands thnn we could now abandon Alaska. Whether we are glad or sorry that events forced us to go there Is aside from the question; the point Is thrtt, as the Inevitable result of the war with Spain, we found ourselves In the Philippines and that we could not leave the Islands without discredit. The Islanders were wholly unfit to govern themselves, and If we had left there would have been a brief period of bloody chaos, and then some other nation would have stepped In to do the work which we had shirked. It can not be too often repeated that there was no question that tfte work had to be done. All the question was, whether we would do It well or 111; and, thanks to the choice of men like Governor Wright, It has been done well. The first snd absolutely indis pensable requisite waa order pesce. The reign of lawless violence, of resistance to leKltlmate authority, the reign of anarchy, could no more be tolerated abroad thnn It could be tolerated here In our own land. Flag; Stands for Liberty. The American flag stands for orderly liberty, and it stands for it abroad as it stands for It at home. The task of our soldiers was to restore and maintain order In the Islands. The army had the task to do. and It did It well and thoroughly. The fullest and heartiest praise belongs to our soldiers who In the Chlllpplnes brought to a triumphant conclusion a war, small In deed compared to the gigantic struggle In which the older men whom 1 am address ing took part In the early '60s, but In conceivably harassing and difficult, because It was waged amid the pathless Jungles of tropic islands and against a foe very elusive, very treacherous, and often incon ceivably cruel both toward our men and toward the great numbers of peace-loving Filipinos who gladly welcomed our advent. The soldiers Included both regulars and volunteers, men from the north, the south, the east and the weat, men from Pennsyl vania and from Tennessee, no less than men from the Rocky mountains and the Pacific slope and to all alike we give honor, for they acted as American soldiers should. Punish Wrooa-Doera. Cruelties were committed here and there. The fact that they were committed under well nigh Intolerable provocation affords no excuse for such cruelties, nor can we admit aa . Justification that they were re taliatory In kind.'' Kvery 'effort has been made to detect and punish the wrongdoers and the wrongdoing itself has been com pletely stopped. Hut these misdeeds were exceptional, and their occurrence in no wise alters the fact that the American army in the Philippines showed as a whole not only splendid soldierly qualities but a high or dor of humanity In dealing with their foes. A hundred thousand of our troops went to the Philippines. Among them were some who offended against the right. Well, are we altogether Immaculate at home? 1 think not. I ask for no special consideration to be shown our friends and kinsmen, our sons and brothers, who dur ing three years so well upheld the na tional honor in the Philippines. I ask merely that we do the same equal Justice to the soldier who went abroad and faced death and lived hard as we show to his fellow whe stayed at home and lived easily and In comfort; and If we show that equal Justice we will doff our hata to the man who haa put the whole country under obligations by the victory he helped to win In the Philippines. But the soldier s worK ss a soldier was rot the larger part of what he did. When once the outbreak was over In any place, then began the work of establishing civil administration. Here, too, the soldier did hla part, for the work of preparing for the civil authority waa often done by the offi ce ra and men of the regular army, and well done, too. Then the real work of building up a system oi sen-government ror tne people who had become our wards waa begun, under the auxptcea of the Philippine commission. Judge Taft being made gov ernor, and I having had the honor myself to appoint General Wright as vice gov ernor. During- the critical period when the Insurrection waa ending and the tlma was one of transition between a state of war and a state of peace, at the time that I Issued a proclamation declaring that the stats of war waa over and that the civil government waa now lr complete com mand, General Wright served as governor of the archipelago. The progress of the. Islands both In material well being and as regards order and Justice under the ad ministration of Governor Wright and his colleagues baa been astounding. Have Gone Fast Enough. There Is no question ss to our not hav ing gone far enough and fast enough In grunting self-government to ths Filipinos; the only possible danger has been lest ws should go faster and farther than waa In ths Interest of the Filipinos themselves. Each Filipino at the present day Is guaran teed his life, his liberty and the chance to pursue happiness as he wishes, so long aa he does not harm his fellows, In a way which the Islands have never known before during all their recorded history. There are banda ot ladrones, of brigands, still In existence. Now and then they may show sporadic increase. This will be due occasionally to disaffection with some of the things that our government doea which are best for example, the effort to quaran tine against the plague and to enforce necessary sanitary precautions, gently and tactfully though It was made, produced violent hostility among some of the mors Ignorant natives. Again, a disease like tho cattle plague may cause In some given province such want that a part of the Inhabitants revert to their ancient habit ot brigandage. Hut the Islands have never been aa orderly, aa peaceful, or as prosper ous as now; and In no other Oriental coun try, whether ruled by Asiatics or Euro peans, Is there snythlng approaching to (be amount of Individual liberty and of self-government which our rule has brought to the Filipinos.

Nov. 19.-Rear Admiral Schley was tbe guest of bonor tonight at the annual banquet Of tbe Commerolal olub beld in commemoration ot tbe signing of the John Jay treaty. , The affair . waa a notable one and Admiral Schley waa given a decided ovation, tbe climax of a day of entbuslastic greetings. The bauquet, bed at tbe Midland hotel, waa most elaborate. Platea were laid for 600, the full capacity of tne' hall, and among Jhe guests were; Captain A. Rowan, U. S. A... qf Atcblson,' Kan., who "carried tbe message to Garcia;' General John C. Bates, commander, of the Department 'of the Missouri; Captain H. M. Reevea, Hugh Gordon Miller of Norfolk, assistant United Statea district attorney of Virginia; Judge C. J. Gavin of Raton,' N. M".; W. H. Rossing ton of Topeka, Governor William E. Stan ley of Kansas and. Frank Strong, chan cellor of th University -. of Kansas. Following a parade upon his arrival from Chicago In tho afternoon Admiral Schley and ths other distinguished guests were given a reception a, the. Commercial club, attended by several hundred people, then a luncheon at the Baltimore hotel and finally a drive about the city. Preceding the banquet an informal' reception waa held In the Midland hotel parlors. Responding to the toast, "Statehood for tha Territories," Judge C. J. Gavin said: The redemption of ths arid landa of the west Is an almost assured fact and the next step' In western development muet be the redemption oi trie -territories ana ac cording to them their places In the sister hood of states, which Is theirs by right of population, wealth and Intelligence., Vo nertlon of the United States or the world, for that matter, has shown mpre rapid development than Oklahoma. -. In thirteen years a barren pasture has been changed to a fruitful garden, and a pop ulation of a few Indian and cowboys has Increased to half a million people with more push and energy to the acre than any other section of ths United States. New Mexico has been knocking at the doors of the Union since 1X50. When, as a sovereign, state, It controls Its waters, every valley and arroyo will be a sourcs of wealth- and teem with plenty; its min eral mountains will be exploited and yield In rich abundance, ita plains will welcome Improved atoek and gladden the hearts of the stockman. Arizona aeeka admission upon the ground that Itself and Its resources are such as entitle it to admission. Ths territory la one of the foremtmt aectlons of ths coun try from a mining standpoint, and Ita agricultural interests commend them- Vhe ' vast resources of these territories have scarcely been touched. They have lain dormant for want of capital to ex ploit and develop them. Their present volume of buslnees, as compared with the business which will and can arise after they are admitted aa atatea. Is measured by contrasting ths noonday sun with a atar of the. fourth magnltuds. In Svery way they have demonstrated their ability to govern themselves. Then do not let politics or sentiment stand In the way of rendering luetics to theae people, but let the halo of three new stars in our flag brighten ths commercial way to our OrUnlal possessions.
