wholesale dealers find it next to im

is a clamor in every direction for black
diamonds, and the situation is rapidly
growing serious.
The railroads have been using their

and are fearful lest they bo left short.
One reason for the shortage lies in the
fact that is well nigh impossible to get
cars, owing to the heavy business trans
acted by the roads.

This attitude of this country—one of
hostility to the German proposition and
German preteneious as to Samoa—can
not fail to be regarded as of the great
est significance. The European con
cert, evidently desirous of getting a
practical illustration of this country's
attitude, is credited with having im
pel led Germany to make the first test
The result is that the United States has
demonstrated her friendliness to Great
Britain, thus verifying the predictions
that the United States would maintain
the status quo in Samoa.
"Yes," said Secretary Long, in re
spouse to a question, "Admiral Schley
will be ordered to East African waters.
The squadron will be increased to what
ever extent the situation demands. I
do not think, as at present advised,
that a larger squadron than the Chi
cago. the Montgomery and the Wil
mington is necessary, but as I have said,
there may be contingencies which
would make it advisable to largely add
to these vessels."
The feeling at the navy department
that it would be well to have a large
American squadron cruising off East
Africa, in the growth of the last few
da vs. It is undoubtedly based 011 the
news obtained in Washington and from
Europe that contingencies may arise
in the progress of the war in the Trans
vaal which would make the presence
of a larger body of sailors and uiariutiti
a necessity iu that neighborhood.

Africa If lie I'hooaee.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 31.—Secretary of
the Navy Long said that he did not
contemplate making any changes in
Admiral Schley's orders. So far these
are nothing more than a direction to
take command of the South Atlantic
station. The date will be definitely
fixed when it is known exactly how
suun the Chicago will be ready for sea.
Nothing has been decided by the de
partment about sending one or more
warships to South Africa. Secretary
Long pointed out that that sec
tion of the world is within the
geographical bounds of the South
Atlantic station. Therefore, Admiral
Schley will le at perfect liberty to go
there or anywhere else 011 his station
after he takes command. No order
from the department will be necessary
in such a case. Respecting the mooted
question of an increase of strength of
the South Atlantic station, the secre
tary said he would not hesitate to add
to the number of ships on the station it
there was necessity for it. So far the
necessity has not occurred and there
fore it was not contemplated to have
more than the three vessels, Chicago.

YoitK, Oct. 31.—A dispatch to
The Journal and Advertiser from
Washington, says: The South Atlantic
squadron has been ordered, or soon will
be ordered, to the scene of the South
African hostilities. Secretary Long has
so declared. It is the second great de
velopment from this country's stand:
point in the European crisis, and,
strangely enough, follows Sunday's no
tification by Great Britain of Germany's
partition of the Samoan group.
