MANILA, Oct. 28.—The constabulary

Panay, in which twenty-five insurgents
were killed and three captured, togeth

news from General Hughes re
gaining conditions in the island of
Cebu is encouraging. IxDrega has sur

cannon and several rifles, while Gen
eral Hughes is negotiating for the
surrender of Maxilot, who styles him
self "governor militar politico.”
His surrender will mean the pacifica
tion of the province.
Lack of food and the harassing ef
fects of the aggressive tactics now
pursued by the Americans forces are
having the influence upon the natives.

by the government only enough is
given for one meal, so that it is hardly
possible for any large quantity to find

It is believed that the recent mani

chiefly due to the lack of food, the in

Dispatches from Cahtalogan, Samar,
say that stringent and energetic meas
ures are being taken to suppress the
insurrection in that island. General
Smith has notified all the presidentes
, and head men of the Pueplos that in
order to avoid trouble they must sur

AUBURN, N. Y„ Oct. 28.—The time
that Leon F. Czolgosz, assassin of
I President McKinley, has to live is reck
oned by hours now, but there has been
no relaxation of the stringent rule
under which the prisoner has been se
cluded since his confinement. Auburn
prison was closed yesterday to any
who sought the assassin and so it will
remain until the prisoner has paid the
penalty which the law enacts.
In fact, the plan to deprive Czolgosz
living of any notoriety ha3 been ex

after the execution the clothing of the
murderer, with the vast accumulation
of mail that came to the prison ior
him, will be turned and if possible the
request of the parents of the dead man
for his body will be evaded. It is
feared that the removal of his body
to Cleveland would lead to scenes of an
unfortunate nature and the prison of

SIOUX CITY, la., Oct. 20.—The Jour
nari this morning publishes an inter
view with Senator Fred J. Dubois of
Blackfoott, Idaho, on the object of ir
rigation in the west. Senator Dubois
is quoted as saying:
"It is going to be a leading question
for congress to deal with. There isn’t
any doubt but that conditions demand
an immediate consideration of this
matter and speedy action. I think
those conditions bear a strong relation
to the industrial situation in this coun
try today. We are complaining of pov
erty among the people, when out in
this great new western country there
are over 100,000,000 acres of land that
are not used because they are lit for
nothing in the present condition, but
which can be reclaimed for agricul
tural purposes by irrigation.
"In our state it is covered with
sage brush. It is virgin soil, and it
is the best soil in the United States,
no place excepted. Sections that are
irrigated through private or corporate
means produce crops of grain, vegeta
bles and fruit that no section of the
country can equal. For instance, the
soil will produce from 200 to 300 bush
els of potatoes to the acre, and 25
bushels of wheat to the acre.
“We have the Snake river, a natural
stream passing through Idaho, whose
waters are used for irrigation pur
poses by private persons and compan
ies. This river has a volume of water
about like the Ohio river, and along
its valleys canals and ditches are dug
to drain the water out over the lands.
I should say 2,500 miles of canals and
ditches have been built by individuals
and companies made up from a half
dozen to a hundred farmers each. The
most of the latter institutions are the
co-operative plan.
“The plan I expect to promote this
winter has been practically agreed
upon by the senators and representa
tives in the western states which are
interested. It is proposed that the
government take hold of the matter
of the development of these arid lands.
The receipts of the land offices of the
various states derived from the sale of
government lands are to be applied as
far as they are in excess of the salaries
of the receivers, registrars, etc., to a
fund to be expended in the building
of reservoirs and canals on the high
lands. Thus the great quantities of
water that come from the snow's on
the mountains may be stopped from
racing madly to the southlands .and
flooding the lower Mississippi out of its
banks, causing loss of life and great
destruction of property. The waters
will be caught and corralled in the
immense reservoirs, and thence out
Into the radiating ditches and released
over the lands of the west as re
quired by conditions or directed by
“You see this government irrigation
will permit lands now unused to be re
claimed and sold to bomeseekers by
the government, which will raise more
money each year for the Irrigation
fund. By this scheme of evolution
every acre of arid land will eventually
be made ready for cultivation in the
great arid belt. California. Idaho, Wy
oming, Montana, Utah, the Dakotas,
Nebraska and other states are inter
ested in thik matter.
"The management of the land of
fices will remain with the government,
but there might be state laws to reg
ulate the distribution of the water. It
' would be necessary to legislate to pre
serve the great white pine forests that
stand on the hills of the west in order
to avert the rapid melting of the snows.
Men from the east are buying large
tracts of these timber lands to cut out
the trees, but this can be checked.
We have in the state of Idaho alone
12,000,000 acres of unused lands.

NBW YORK, Oct. 25.—Numerous
floating grain elevators looming above
tlio stores of the Atlantic basin, back
of Governor's Island, and 124 berthed
steamers, many of them tossing idly,
attest an unprecedented dullness in
ocean freights, says the World. It Is
due to the shortage of the corn crop
out west. Corn exports are 30,000,000
bushels behind the same date of 1900.
“Corn makes ocean freights—not
wheat,” explained llroker Lunliam of
Lunham & Moore, freight brokers and
forwarding agents, Produce exchange.
Experts estimate 100,000 ton3 of
ocean cargo space tied up in New
York, about the same in Philadelphia,
and smaller amounts in Boston, Bal
timore, Norfolk and New Orleans. Coal
that was formerly carried to Europe
for $3.75 and $4 a ton is now' carried
for $2. General cargo from the gulf
to Denmark that brought $1.50 and $5
a ton is now' being taken for $3.12.
Ocean freights have fallen 20 per cent
at least.

ALBANY, N. Y., Oct. 25.—Leon F.
Czolgosz, the murderer of President
McKinley, will be electrocuted at 7 a.
m. on Tuesday, October 29, at Auburn
Warden Mead has selected Tuesday,
so that (Inal arrangements may be
made on Monday. In doing this he
is following the general custom in the
state prisons relative to electrocutions.
It does away with the necessity for
malting final arrangements on Sunday.
The sentence of the court was that the
execution of Czolgosz should take
place during the week comencing Oc
tober 2S, leaving to the warden of the
prison full power to select the day of
the week in which to carry out the
mandates of the law. This latitude
in given the warden to secure secrecy
as to the time of the execution and to
guard against delay from accident,
such as in 1893 caused a delay of an
hour in an execution after the con
demned man had been taken into the
death house at Auburn penitentiary.

OMAHA, Oct. 23.—That choice cattle
are bringing high prices at the South
Omaha market was again demonstrat
ed yesterday by the sale of a bunch
of steers and heifers that sold at the
highest prices of the season. The cat
tie were raised on a farm at’ Papil
llon owned by A. W. Clark. They
were nearly two years old and were
Whltefaces and Shorthorns. For near
ly a year they have been on full feed
und were given a ration of corn meal
and alfalfa hay. When weighed at
the stock yards they showed an aver
age weight of 1,257 pounds and sold
for $6.30.
The highest price paid previous to
this time was $6.25 and that was for
straight stews. Tne fact that out of
the nineteen head marketed by Mr.
Clark there were ten heifers makes
this sale by far the highest of the sea
son. It may safely be said that $6.36
is the highest price ever paid at South
Omaha for that many heifers.
Mr. Clark is a Ann believer in the
theory that it pays to raise good cat
tle and in making them fat before
sending them to market. He has one
of the best equipped feeding yards in
the state and he seldom fails to top
the market whenever he has cattle for
