from the Aurora BoresJls, according to
tho theory of ' Mr. " Baldwin. " From
cloaa observation of the Aurora Bo
realla, he believes that It It a great
force, which can be placed In control
tlcularly troublesome just at present
for several reason. Ha finances,
which were fairly well managed dur
ing the earlier part of Its history, are
now In a deplorable condition. Re
cent governments have been extrava
gant In the matter of expenditures,
and the treasury has suffered especially
through a fatuous state railway scheme
which ended In dead failure.
Meantime the country has had a
series of bsd harvests, so that while
demand for taxes haa increased
the ability to pay them has decreased.
As a result the problem of meeting the
charges on the public debt has become
a very serious one, and the govern
ment has been obliged already to pass
some of Its obligation!. Naturally,
therefore, Its foreign creditors are
very nervous, and resorts to jiew for-
'Banyan Uree of India.
The banyan tree of India Is one of
the moat wonderful trees that grow.
The picture represents the main trunk
of the banyan and some of the sec
ondary trunks. The banyan, as doubt
less all boys have read, sends down
i " j h
of human Ingenuity. He believes that
this, force Is electrical and that tho
polar regions hold great reservoirs of
It, which could be utilised in the pro
pulsion of machinery and the working
of dynamos. The America la to carry
elgn loans In lieu of taxes are not the
promising expedient they once were.
The situation would be quite serious
enough without political complications,
but Bulgaria bas these In sbundance.
The science of ministerial government
is so poorly understood that ministers
come and go in quick succession, and
thus encourage the rise of factions.
Furthermore, the capital. Soda, la the

The Macedonians Inhabit the south

new arrangement between their peo
ple and the Porte. Their scheme In
cludes a dozen concessions and re
forms which they have set forth In a
memorial to the great powers, but al
though the memorial hinted at danger
of a revolution they have gained noth
ing by their appeal.
In Bulgaria public sentiment con
cerning them is divided. Though
they have a numerous body of sympa
thizers the government hesitates to
cast in Its lot with theirs, because it
fears the Interposition of the powers,
by whose will Bulgaria exists as a
quasi-Independent state. The fate of
Greece Is a warning which is not yet

Late in March there was a comic
opera Invasion of Macedonia by a few

frontier, but on the sixth of April the
president of the Macedonian commit

that after considerable wavering the
authorities had finally decided to clear
themselves from all suspicion of a
connection with the conspirators.

THE LIVE STOCK MARKET.

CATTLE There was a fair run of cat

In good shape the market ruled active
and full steady all around on anything
at all desirable. The bulk of the receipts
were aguln composed of beef steers, about
seventy-five cars being Included In the of
fering. INukers started out early and
paid good, firm priced for the more de
sirable bunches. The common kindx,
however, were lather neglected and In
some cases sellers found it difficult to get
steady prices. There were only about fif
teen earn of cows and heifers on sale,
and as buyers all wanted a few It did not
take them long to clear the pens. The
market could best be described by call
ing It active and steady to strong. There
were not many stockers and feeders of
fered and the demand for them waa a
little better, so that anything desirable
was picked up early at good, strong
prices. Stock calves were ready sellers
and the prices on that class of stock
have Improved considerably this week.
HOOS There was a heavy run of hogs
and as other rtolnts reported a drop In
prices the market luro opened Vi-fvKk-lower.
The bulk of the early sales went

loads selling from In.STVi to $6. The hogs
began moving toward the scales at an
early hour, and It was not long before
the bulk hud changed hands. The light
weights, however, were very slow sale
anil bids ranged from $5.82'4 down to C
HHEliP There was a heavy run, but
the big bulk of the receipts was composed
of Colorado lambs, about 45 cars being
Included in the receipt. Packers did not
seem to be at all anxious for supplies tilts'
morning, and as a result the market was
very slow, and up to a late hour but lit
tle stuff had changed hands. What did sell
brought. Just about steady prices with
yesterday, the t lambs of yesterday
bringing the same price today. Sheep
were also about steady but slow.

00OD EffECT IS EXPECTED.
Agutnddo's Addrce Will Hava Proper
Influence on Filipinos.
WASHINGTON, April 20 It is be
lieved by the administration that tbe
manifesto of Aguinaldo will have a de
cidedly good effect in the Philippines
and in this country. It will take some
time for its dissemination among the
Filipinos, but it is expected to be of
considerable service and to make more
rapid the change in the situation
vhlch set in some time ago and has
become quite marked of late.
Especial gratification is felt at the
unreserved tone of the document and
the full acceptance it indicates of
American rule. This, it is felt, will
bring to the support of the government
many Filipinos who, wishing peace,
have hesitated to assist tho Taft com
mission. In this country it is expect
ed to reduce the criticism of the ad
ministration and to cause less discus
sion of the general policy of the war
i.: the Islands and more consideration
of the Important matter of the best
administration to be evolved for their
government. It is to this work that
the Taft commission is now bending
all Its energies.
Aguinaldo, now that he has accept
ed American sovereignty, probably
will be given more liberty than he
has enjoyed hitherto. His services
will be used as far as possible in the
pacification of the islands. The ex
tent, however, to which he will be
permitted his freedom Is for General
MacArthur to determine, with the as
sistance of the Taft commission, for
the aim of the home government here
will be to rest largely upon the
views held by its representatives In

This statement is conveyed to tbe
State department in a communication
from United States 'Jonsul General
Bellows at Yokohama.. The situation,
as analyzed by tbe shrewdest finan
ciers and statesmen of the empire,
shew that the Chinese indemnity se
cured at tbe close of ths Japan-China
w,',r, together with large national
loans, led to tbe exploiting, of many
publiu and private undertakings,
which, caused money to be unusually
plentiful among the coolie or laboring
claej;ee. This induceed extravagant
methods of living and is assigned as a
potent factor In the large increase of
The amount of indemnity paid by
Chins proved insufficient for the en
terprises projected and many millions
were diverted from tbe customary
channels of trade to carry forward the
undertakings referred to.
The interruption of the Chinese
trade brought a falling off In exports
also during the last year. In 1M0
the relation of Japan's exports to its
Imports stood at the ratio of five to
six, and 124,900,000 passed out of ths
country to settle Japan's trsds bal
ance. Foreign capital, it Is stated,
declines to enter the Japaxese market,
although tempted by nattering rates
of interest. Living expenses have in
creased during the last few years over
75 per cent, which causes the scarcity
of money for commercial and indus
trial purposes to be all the more
keenly felt." -
The consul general closes his report
by saying: "The closeness of tbe
money market, combined with the dull
ness of trade and violent fluctuations
of prices, is causing much alarm
among merchants, manufacturers and

LONDON, April 17. Discussing the

attack on the colonial secretary, Mr.

men like ray brother-in-law Joe to say
that farm burning is all right, but how
can he know about farms or farming?
Who was his father? He was s little

about farms. It is no good sending out
screwmakers or anything of that sort. .
