DEPARTMENT FOR COLONIES
DtWcbed PoMMtiooi Important aad Largs
Esoogh for a Cabinat Officer.
HARSH SOUNOiNG TITLE FOR THE ANTIS
abject DUeassed aad Irged la Infln
aatlal (iir)rRMMii Why

WASHINGTON, July 22.-9peclal.)-The
suggestion of establishing a colonial de
partment will call forth all the opposition
to "Imperialism" that has been pent up to
Kimt extent or which ha lain dormant
while other questions have, absorbed the
public mind. But It has become apparent
that under Rome name colonial or Insular
a new department of the government, with
a cabinet officer at Its head, itiurt be cre
ated. The detached possessions of the
United States In the Pacific and Atlantic
fceans. and In the strip of land connecting
4Jioe oceans, are of sufficient Importance
( engross all the attention of one man and
would keep him very busy If he attend .d
to them properly. With the exception of
Hawaii,' Porto Rico and Guam, the least
Important of the Island possessions, they
are now under the War department. This
entails too heavy a burden upon one man, 1
who would have enough to do by taking
car of all the business that naturally falls
to the head of the department which ad
ministers the affaire of the army and all
that pertains to tt.
At the close of the Spanish war the
United States was In possession of Cuba,
Porto Rico and the Philippines, and nat
urally administered the governments of
these Islands through the army, which had
taken possession of the Islands. They were
ruled by the military until civil govern
ments were established. During this period
there was built up In the War department
a bureau through which the affairs of the
Inlands' were' conducted, and It has been
4ulte natural to continue this machinery In
peratlon and continue the control of the
Islands and the bureau of insular affairs
under the secretary of war. The Islands
must be under aome cabinet officer, and
why remove them from the War depart
ment? is the question asked, and which can
not be answered save to say that if they
are territories they should be placed und-sr
the Interior department, as has been done
with Hawaii and Porto Rico.
The construction of the Panama canal
has also been placed under the control of
the War department; not that tt belonged
there more than under any other depart
ment, but It had to go somewhere, and the
president preferred that It should be under
Secretary Taft rather than any other cab
inet officer. The Canal commission Is ad
ministered through the bureau of Insular
affairs. Here we have the Philippine gov
ernment and' the Isthmian canal, two of
the greatest and most Important fields cf
operation engaging the attention and en
ergy of the people of the United States,
administered through a bureau of the War
department. If a . cabinet officer should
give all his time and attention to these
great questions he would be fully occupied,
yet he must also manage the affairs of the
army, -with all the increased duties which
have occurred since the War department
tlaestlon of Xante. .
A colonial department, or an insular de
partment. If that would be less harsh to
ears that are sensitive to the imperialistic
word "colony," seems to be necessary. Of
course, the canal Is not "Insular," but for
administrative purposes In the War de
partment It Is such now. Of course, a
double name might be used, aa was, done to
appease the labor interests when the Department-
of Commerce and Labor wne
created, and a new department to be- called
"Islands and Canals" might ba provided. ,. ,
But the question of name is a matter of
ttetall. What la apparent is that the Philip
pines and Panama canal are out of place
in the War department. Neither are under
military control nor have aught to do with
war. They would as properly be under the
control of the Navy department as the
War department had It not been for a train
of natural circumstances. The construction
of the canal and the administration of the
Philippines are both civil functions. Peace
has been established and acknowledged in
the Philippines. The army has less to do
than It had during the pioneer. day of the
west, when Indians were on the warpath.
Consequently, there la not the least neces
alty for keeping the management of the
Philippines under, the war secretary.' At
present there is no other place for them to
go that is, no practical place. Besides, a
change of administration from one depart
ment of the government to another la not
made unless for good reason and by au
thority of congress. The authority of con
gress would be in an act creating a depart
ment of colonies and placing the govern
ment of auch possessions aa are not ex
pected to become atatea under ita jurisdic
tion, and also making the Canal Zona a
colony in the method of its government.
Such a department would be one of the
moat important in the government, much
more Important than the War department
with, the Philippines and canal removed
from Its Jurisdiction.
While there are strong reasons for creat
ing a new department and better adminis
tration would no doubt result from ao
doing, yet It would be difficult to bring It
about. In the first place, the support of
the president and secretary of war would
be necessary, and in the next there wauld
be aerloua opposition In congress to adding
another department to the nlna cabinet
place now In existence. At the same time
the subject Is being discussed and urged
in some influential quarters. Ten years
ago neither the Phlllpplnea nor the canal
were featurea of our government. Today
they are the most Important features, and
both have been added to a department of
the government which was already fully
occupied with important business.
Creatlaa- Blew Department.
Departments of the government with a
cabinet officer have been created from
tima to time as the growth of the country
ana its business demanded. Bureaus of
one kind or another have been created aa
separate organisations, but it has been
found r.ecesaary in time to attach them to
. soma department so that thla business
may be taken direct to the president
when occasion demanded. Soma bureaus
have been allowed to remain independent.
van when the latest cabinet position was
created, but for the most part every new
Bureau created by congress has been at
tacked to aome department In order that
it may be controlled by a man of auffl
dent importance to be a member of the
president's official family.
The Interest of the United State in agrt
culture wa first vested In a commission
and was administered as "a bureau of
subordinate proportions. But it grew vear
by year. Bureaus and divisions were i
ated. It was a vast machine and the de
termination was reached to make it - de
partment of the government with a cabi
net officer. No doubt the men in con-
graaa, representing agricultural districts
were glad to do this for the benefit of
their constituents and to add some dignity
to the great Industry which is the founda
tion of all prosperity.
The last department to be created. Cony
mere and Labor, was at first designed to
ba only Commerce, but the new depart
ment was to Include the long established
bureau of labor, and tl.e labor representa
tive mad tt quit plain that they would
resent the subordination of this bureau.
In fact, they demanded a department of
their own with a cabinet officer, and the
compromise was effected by adding the
words "and Labor" to the original tltla.
It waa first Intended to Include the Inter
atate Commerce commission in the new
department, but the fierce opposition
which the plan engendered caused tha
men in charge of the legislation to drop It
out This brought forth a sarcastic re
mark from Senator Ila'.e t the time upon
the incongruity of creating a department
of commerce and leaving out of It a com
mission dealing with . the most Important
commercial questions of the country,
while Including the Fish commission,
which wea as far removed from commerce
as any bureau could be. But there were
reasons for leaving out tha Interstate
Commerce commission. . That body waa
apposed to be a quasi-Judicial body, ub
Ject to no one and ought not to be ub
ordinate to a cabinet officer, and in its
opinions and orders it was not even sub
ordinate to the president.
The Department of Commerce and La
bor was made n "catch all." Bureaus
necessary to the government -which had
been attached haphazard to other de
partments were given to the new depart
ment. Bureaus which had nothing to do
with the collection and administration of
the revenues of the government, such as
the life saving service, the Immigration
service, the ateamboat inspection service
and the statistical service, wera placed un
der thla department, and with aatlafactory
results. Tha secretary of the treasury was
relieved of a large amount of work which
had nothing whatever to - do with the
collection and expending tha money of the
Growl Needs of the Coantry.
As the country growa and the business
Increases it will be found, that additional
departments are necessary. No one man
can attend to all the Important business
of a growing department, especially If
the business of that department continues
to expand. Nearly every department was
relieved by the creation of ' the Depart
ment of Commerce and Ibor. Of course,
there were no bureaus of either the War
or Navy departments that could have been
transferred, nor was there any desire to
take from either of these departments any
of their functions. But the growth of the
government, Its expansion In the orient,
and the building and administration of the
Panama canal would seem to necessitate
a separate department. ,
The Philippines and the oanal are far
removed from the army. There Is no re
lation between them. The reorganlxatlon
of the Canal commission, giving all the
power to three civilians, waa a atep to
ward divorcing the canal from the mili
tary. The whole tendency is toward a ;
nonmilltary administration and control.
The canal Is under the War department
for convenience and because the president
wanted a man like William H. Taft to
have immediate control of its affairs. For
a similar reason Taft waa made secretary
of war. A man was wanted who could
administer the Philippines. Taft was not
made secretary of war because he was a
great warrior or was an expert In army
matters, but because he had experience In
the Philippines and was well fltted for
the great civilian work that some cabinet
officer should perform.
If a new department of colonies was
created, no doubt Secretary Taft would be
the best man for the place. The last de
partment created takes the lowest rank in
the cabinet In all official and state func
tions, but it does not mean) that it Is the
lowest In Importance by any means. No
one would think of saying that the Depart
ment of Commerce and Labor was of less
Importance than the Agriculture, Interior,
Justice, or even the Postofflce departments.
If there should be a department of colonies
to control the island possessions and . the
Isthmian canals it would reduce the im
portance of the War' department, but the
new department would be second to none In
Importance. For years to come the Philip
pines and the canal will be great factors In
the history and politics of the American re
public. Creatloa of Cabinet Offices.
The first department created In the gov
ernment was that of Foreign Affairs. This
was later changed to Department of State,
but retained Its place as the premiership
of the cabinet. The next to be created waa
the War department and then the Treasury.
The latter department has always ranked
the War department, and In the provision
for tha presidential succession the treasury
follows the State department. Possibly the
Treasury department took second place be
cause Alexander Hamilton was the secre
tary. It was a case of where McOregor sits
being the head of the table. Naturally
Washington, having been for eight 'years
commander-in-chief of the army, was his
own war secretary, and the man holding
that portfolio would not make tt take .a
front rank. But with Jefferson as secre
tary of state and Hamilton secretary of tha
treasury, it was certain that these depart
ment would take a front rank from the
first. For eight year these men made the
State and Treasury tha two Important de
partments of the government.
Although in these tlmea tha ability of
cabinet officer doea not change the rank of
the position. It does change the Importance
of the place In the administration. Thus It
happened that Whitney made the Navy de
partment prominent In the first Cleveland
administration. Blaine naturally made the
State department prominent In the Harri
son administration.' During Cleveland'
second term Olney made the Department
of Justice well known until he was trans
ferred to the State department. In the Mc-
Klnley and Roosevelt administrations Root
made the War department the foremost
position In the cabinet and Taft has kept It
there. It is thus apparent that a man of
ability can maae his own place In the ad
ministration, regardless of the rank of hie
cabinet position. If It should happen that
a colonlaj department waa created and a
man like Root or Taft placed at the head
of It, auch a department would be tha laat
place only at social functions and In the
rosters. Such a department would require
the best man to be obtained and he would
make himself a figure even If precedent and
tha law should place him below all other.

OMAHA. July 22, 1906.
After sn easy tendency in wheat all day
the market waa stampeded near the close
by rust reports and September rose to yes
terday's close. The opening was 90Vii?KHe
and the price declined to tmc near noon on
account of disbelief by many traders of
current rust reports. An easy feeling had
been created by the passing of the word
by the Northwestern Miller that the re-
rorts In the main had been started by
nulls and Jones, both working for tha
same bull interest. It did not take long to
change conditions toward the end. The
chief apprehension from rust Is that the
northwest crop Is ten days late. July was
lower and closed at UV, September closed
at 9UH$Mttc and December at 9t907so.
Corn, cash and futures, was nearly lc
lower. July closed at 67ic old July at
67Hc, September at ooVgaoic. old Sep
tember at KVflGoHc, December at 4&y0 and
old December at c.
Oats closed with July at ll40, September
at So and December at 9 -'
Liverpool closed lhid higher on wheat
and Hd higher on corn.
Minneapolis has been the center of the
rust excitement. The speculative and ele
vator Interests Were buying there yesterday
and tha shorts were stampeded. Prices ad
vanced 64c. The big shorts there have
been covering for two days and the bull
leaders are said to have Increased their
holdings. Friday night prices were up

had advanced 8c frow '.he low point of
Monday, and the Jul September spread,
which showed a disposition to narrow earl

The Inter Ocean, which has been Investi
gating black rust, reports on He own ac
count, says today: "Developments In the
black rust scare In the spring wheat sec
tions of the northwest were highly sensa
tional and greatly exaggerated yesterday.
The great combination of bullish Interests
at Minneapolis, who are said to be loaded
with high priced wheat, are flooding the
country with the wildest kind of reports
about black rust. There Is no doubt that
there Is black rust in spots, as the reports
come from many good people, but they

initial quotations on September being fco

cables were considerably higher th mar
ket lacked the sustaining Influence of any
definite news regarding alleged damage to
spring wheat throughout the Dakotas and
Minnesota. The absence of any fresh dam
age reports from that territory had a ten
dency to Induce fairly active profit tak
ing. As a result prices reacted about lo
during the first half hour, September de
clining to 89c. Later reports were received
partially contradicting the sensational ad
vices of yesterday and this tended to hold
prices at a lower level. In addition the
continuation of a liberal movement gave
bears further encouragement, total pri
mary receipts today being 1.O49.O0O bushels
compared with only 620,400 bushels a year
ago. Just before the close prices experi

CATTLE-As will be noted rrom the table
given above the receipts of csttle this week
are smaller than for the previous week by
about 2,000 head. In spite of the falling off
In the number arriving there have been
enough cattle here to meet all the require
ments of the trade.
As usual on the last day of the week there
were no cattle of any consequence here
nor at any of the other large markets. In
looking back over the cattle trade of the
last six days It Is not possible to discover
anything very encouraging to the selling
Interests. Dullness has been a prominent
feature of the market nearly every day and
the general tendency of values has been
downward. For the week it Is safe to quote
beef steers at lOftl&c lower than they were
at the close of the previous week. - Good
dry-lot cattle, not too heavy, which bave
beeivthe most sought after; have not showy
so much decline as the rough or plain
cattle, or as grass cattle. They have also
been easier to sell than have the commoner
grades. This, however, Is the usual thing
on a declining market.
Cows and heifers on most day have not
been in very large supply, but still they
have suffered more decline than have steers.
Outside of strictly good dry lot stock on the
heifer order the market can be quoted 15(9
25c lower. The trade Is rapidly getting
down to a grass basis and the Very fact
that fewer corn-feds and more graasers are
coming makes the market look lower than
It really is when compared with a week
Feeding cattle of good quality and
weights appear to be in a little better de
mand, but they would naturally show some
weakness In sympathy with the decline of
beef steers. On the other hand common
kinds of stockeis and feeders are hard to
get lid of and it seems like they have been
lower every dsy this week. Taking all
kinds Into consideration the feeder market
la Just about 1015c lower than It waa a
HOGS The receipts of hogs thla morning
were again large, 1K1 cars being reported ip.
sight. This, together with unfavorable re
ports from other selling points, caused a
still further reduction In prices. Early bids
were usually ell of 5c lower. Later on. r. s
It became apparent that there was a fair
shipping demand, opening sales on toppy
lots were not over 24c lower. Inferior
coarse and mixed loada were usually quoted
around 5e lower, while good shipping tioga
showed little decline from yesterday. After
the trade waa once under way the market
became quite active at current prices, so
that a 'fair clearance was made In good
season. The clase was firmer on good lots.
but. rather uncertain on inferior kinds The
bulk of all the hogs sold at $5.474&660.
The receipts of hogs have been very largd
this week. In fact extremely so for this
season of the -year, as will be noted from
the table ooove. j-iuring the first half of
the week prices tended upward steadily,
reaching the high point of the year to date
011 Wedneaday. On Thursday a downwurd
movement was started and all the advance
of the week was lost and about 6c more.
In other words, the week closes with nrlcj
Just about 5c lower than they were at the
close of last week. Representative sales:

SHEEP The market thl morning wa
practically bare of supplies aa usual on the
last day of the week. Aa regarda the trade
for the week there la not much that can be
added to what waa aaid yesterday. The
sheep market at all points has suffered a
severe break, due apparently to the heavy
falling oft In the demand for mutton conse
quent upon the hot weather that has pre
vailed In the large consuming centers of
the country. Packers have found It Impos
sible to force mutton Into consumption in
anything like usual quantities, which means
that they have not been In a position to buy
freely of either sheep or lambs. At all roar,
ket points both sheep and lambs hav been
coming faster than they wera wanted.
There could be only one outcome to such a
state or aaalrs and that was the break in
At this point the decline for the wee
amounts to right around 60c, with some of
the more desirable kinds not more than 25o
Off. With less Houvht after atufT as much as
75c lower in exereme cases. Other western
markets note fully as much decline as this
and eastern markets a good deal more. As
evidence thst this market has not suffered
more than the others a split shipment of
sheep sold yesterday at a down-the-rlver
martlet at prices netting the owner 21c per
hundred less-than at South Dttoha The
sale at South Omaha was made early In the
morning and the price wired to the other
market, so that they had every chance to
beat it If this market hart Iim.h nut n lino
To sum up, the market lias been slow ?nd
very unaullslaclory at all points. In addi
tion to being lower, hut. after all. !,. Icea
are still high aa compared with other yetsrs.

Woman Fabricate a Story of Coming
Marriage and Get a La rga
Af Indianapolis, girl conjured up a re
markable fabrication of stories, sensation
ally and pathetically reciting the romance
of a mythical' fiance and a broken wed
ding, for. the unique purpose of inducing
her mother to buy her clothes. Tho young
woman, Mlas Mabel Jones, bought herself
an engsgement ring with her savings,
and then, after having accomplished her
purpose toward replenishing her wardrobe,
sent herself a telegram announcing that,
her lover had been killed by a fall from
a horse. It has now developed that Mis
Jones' love affair had no existence except
in her own fervid Imagination.
The truth was finally wrung from Miss
Jones, after she had been subjected to a
most severe cross-examination by the very
men she .had implicated In the affair by
the use of their names. So trying was tha
ordeaf that Miss Jones' mother, Mrs. Frank
Arbuckle. swooned In the midst of th
questioning and waa revived only after an
hour's arduous work. A state of collaps
followed, and early this morning she wa
With her mother unconscious . on th
floor and the other members of her family
Imploring her to tell the truth, Mis Jones
sobblngly confessed that the story of her
contemplated wedding was manufactured
by herself; that she had bought her own
engsgement ring and even written, with
her own hand, the telegram telling of her
sweetheart' traglo death.
Continued questioning, much the same a
that to which a witness on cross-examination
Is subjected, began to hav it effect
on Miss Jones. She showed signs of waver
ing, and Just then her mother swooned.
This wrung the truth from tha young
First of all she admitted that th wed-'
ding rtory wa a pure fabrication. She
said she wsnted more and nicer dresses,
and that she had created the wedding
myth in order to Induce her parents to buy
her expenalve dresses. She told them eh
had met a man named Benjamin, from
St. Louis, who was a high official of tha
Canadian railroad, and that he was going
to call. Miss Jones afterward explained
that she had got Benjamin's address from
a railroad folder, which- Benjamin had left
In her employer's office.
As time progressed and her patent In
sisted on knowing more about hr St.
Louis admirer, Ml as Jones told of numer
ous telegrams and letter she had recelvna,
both from him and from his mother, fi
nally she announced that the wedding wa
set for June 14, and she produced a hand
some diamond ring, which she said wa a
betrothal gift from her weetheart.
To make her story good, she carried
home a picture, which she said had been
sent her. This was Constantino's picture,
which had come into her possession. Tha
wedding ring had been purchased with her
own money. These facts were admitted
between sobs Miss Jones continued her
. As th day for tha wedding approached
Miss Jones commenced to plan to get away
from the event. Then it was that ah con
ceived the ruse of her Oance'e death. 8h
wrote a telegram saying: "Clyde wa killed
while riding hi horse," and sent It to
herself by a messenger boy. IndlanapOIl
