yesterday. The term of tho governor ex
pired Juna 7, but the appointment was held
up at the request of parties In the terri
tory Communications were received at
the Interior department several weeks ago
protesting against the reappointment of
Mr. Otero. Various allegations were made
relative to 1:1s management of territorial
affairs. The secretary of the Interior, Mr.
Hitchcock, took up these communications
and had each one cnrctully Investigated.
Mr. Otero answered euch, and the special
agents of tho department made reports on
them. The result was the complete vin
dication of the present governor, and, as he
had the harking of tho territorial organi
zation in the party, Mr. Hitchcock recom
, ended his reappointment.
Last night Mr. Otero received moro than
seventy-five telcgraniR of congratulations
at hl3 appointment. He left for the terri
tory and will arrive some time Wednes
day. n. S. Rodey, delegate-elect from tho ter
ritory, has been here with Governor Otero
urging his reappointment.
"While the appointment of governor Is
for n four yearn" term," says Mr. Rodey,
"It Is not expected that the officers re
cently selected will fill their terms. Now

be admitted as a state, nnd the fight Is to
be brought to a close If possible In the
Fifty-seventh congress, I havo been elected
for the purpose almost solely of further

tho election wan the largest over cast for a
delegate from that torrltory, not excluding
Senator Elklns of West Virginia, who came
to congress several times an tho representa

'Whcn California came Into tho union
New Mexico organized n state government,
adopted a constitution and elected two
senators and one representative nnd sent
them to Washington, expecting to get In
at that time, and, although we had n popu

to bo admitted. The claims of New Mexico
for stntehood have since been Investigated
by no less than eight congresses, and bills
havo been favorably reported for that pur
poso In one house or the other six times.
"Now our population Is hown by the
census to bo 200,000, but we claim at least
fiO.OOO more. Our territorial area Is larger
than the whole of New England nnd N'ew

from tho work entitled, "The Commercial
Relations of the United States for 1D0O,"
to bo made public by Mr. Frederick Emory,

.Consul Heenan of Odessa says that an
Interesting featuro of tho trade with Rus
sia In 1900 was the demand for American
agricultural machinery, such as harvesters,
binders, reapers, mowers, horse rakes, etc.,
In sections of the country whero these
machines had previously been but little
used. This wan notahly the caso In Poind.
The reason given was tho scarcity of labor,
owing to the heavy emigration from that
district during late years. Tho Introduction
of horse lower threshers by an enterpris
ing Araerlcnn probably Is the advance
guard of an enormous trade in these ma
chines. Consul General Wlnslow of Stockholm
urge? American exporters not to overlook
the opoprtunltles for trade In Sweden. Tho
Swedes, ho says, are tho Yankees of
Europe nnd if their commercial friend
ship is cultivated, our merchants will find
there Is a growing market for their sup
plies. The consul general notes that tho thirty
American locomotives that have been put
on tho State railways are meeting with
great praise, and that the new engines
tinder construction in the kingdom are pat
terned after them. More orders probably
will be placed In tho Untied 8tates.

LEAVENWORTIL Kan., June 16. Con
siderable excitement has been caused by
what appears to be a schomc of tho negroo3
of Leavenworth to arm themselves with re
volvers purchased from soldiers at Fort
Leavenworth. Ever nlnco thn burning of
Fred Alexander tho negroes of Leavenworth
havo been In an ugly mood and conservative
men say that tho race feeling ntlrred up
at that time may break out any time. The
police are doing everything possible to kill
this feeling and are assisting tho officers
nt Fort Leavenworth to recover tho re
volvers. It seems that the negroes hnd circulated
tho report among tho soldiers nt the fort
that they would buy up all tho govern
ment revolvers offered, and several of the
soldiers took the opportunity of disposing
of tho government's goods. Lieutenant F.
L. Dcen of Troop K finally set n trap for
tho negroes. Instructing certain privntrn to
offer their weapons for sale. Three negroes
who bought them were arrested and aro

MANILA, Mny !). (Correspondence of tho
Associated PrcBs.) The chief of the For
estry bureau of tho Philippines, Captain
Ahearn, has Just Issued a circular which
Is applicable to those who nro considering
business ventures other thnn lumbering In
tho nrchlpolago. The United States attor
ney general, It should be borne In mind,
has construed that tho Inhibitions on tho
amendments to tho Spoonor act do not
apply to timber nutting on government
lands. In brief, the circular Is as follows:
Tlmlici- l.nml In Immune.
"At present thero are no laws by which
timber lands can bo purchased. Thero H
somo timber land held by private parties,
but It is very limited In oxtent and uh u
rulo is not on tbo market. The custom
for lumbermen in theso Islands Is to , .ply
for a licenso, granted free of charge, uud
is for a form of ono year and can ln re
newed. As a rule applicants can obtain as
large a tract as they can conveniently ex
ploit. Thero nro many largo forest dis
tricts whero no licenses havo been ap
plied for and which could be profitably
handled If labor could be obtained.
"Tho felled timber Is measured and np
prnlsed nn it leavos tho forest by a for
estry official. Tho valuation of stato tim
ber Is mado by tho cubio foot. Tho tlmbor
Is divided Into six groups and valued ns
follows: Superior group, 14 cents (Mexi
can) per cubic foot; first group, 10 ronts
(Mexican) per cubic foot: necond group, 8
cents (Mexican) per cubic font; third
group, 3 cents (Moxlcan) per cubic foot;
fourth group, 2 cents (Mexican) per cublo
foot; fifth group, 1 cent (Mexican) per cubic
-Men Are the Grcnlent Need.
"It would bo wlso to look over tho
ground vory rnrefully beforo Investing In
tho timber of theso Islnnds. Thero Is n
vast market here In tho Orient, which will
readily tako ovnry log brought to tlde
wator. Much valunhlo tlmhcr Is hero nnd
a high piico Is pnid for tho samo In this
markot. Tho great nnd almost insuperab)o
obstacle is thn lack of labor. And when
labor Is socured, much tact Is required to
retain it for any length of tlmo.
"Much of thn valuable timber Is Inao
ccss'blo at present, duo to tho lack of
roads, in tlmo roads will bo constructed
nnd river driveways Improved. Portable
nnrrow gauge railroads will bo found leas
Ible In many places. The great majority
of tho native timber will not float, but
bamboo rafts aro oftan used. Tho bamboo
finds n ready salo In all tho markets.
Thero nro 665 nntlvo tree species now
known, Including eleven bpccles of oak,
true ebony, somn teak, camagon, nn
nhundnnce of uarra (Philippine ma
hogany) tlndalo, cantales (Philippine
cedar) nnd other woods suitable for
veneering nnd finest cabinet work. Thero
are moro than fifty npeclc3 of valunhlo
gum trees, from which aro extracted rub
bor, gutta percha nnd ether gums.
"Npxt tn labor, transportation Is dim
cult to secure, ns tho supply of stenmers
and Inunches Is limited; In the Interior
freight rntcn nro high and nt times cost
more than tho prlco of timber at tide
water, "In vlow of early pence and a resumption
of building In tho provinces tho demand
for tlmbor and transportation will Incrcaoo
very materially this year and next,"
Captain Ahearn Is about to leave for the
United States nnd will exhibit snmplea of
Philippines Moods hoforo tho furniture
associations at Grand Rapids nnd else
where. The very great variety of rare anil
beautiful woods will doubtless mirprlso
them nnd mny create an American domnnd
for Phlllpplno timber.
