to take" softie one, warehouse and utilize it
as th point for opening bids and examining

would still continue to be used for the
storage of supplies and as sources of ship.
ment to the, field. The weight nnd bulk
of tome of the samples, hoVever, made It
seem Impracticable to send thein on long
Journey, and no effective substitute for
th existing sample system lis a yet been
worked out. The same objection does not
apply to bids. They pa through the mail
freely. Ilka other written communications,
and the work of opening, announcing and
tabulating them Is purely a ministerial
formality. It has been decided, 'therefore,
to have all the bids opened this year at th
Indian office In Washington, and th adver

usual, to the several warehouses indicated

says that the British admiralty has de
cided to build submarine torpedo boats In
large number for the defense of the coast
and to abandon the plan for the erection
of expensive fortification. Great Britain
in farther advanced In the development of
submarine navigation than any other coun

more of these vessels than England. The
trouble with the French naval authorities
Is, however, according to exierts, that they
have never yet developed a type, all of
their boats being experiments. Groat Britain

PARIS, April X. Foreign Minister Bo ur
ged at an early date will address the
Chamber of Deputies setting forth th
government's view as the result of the
conference on Moroccan reforms at AI
The agreement la hailed with satisfaction
by officials and by the public press, which
wa weary of th prolonged controversy
and the disturbing probability of war,
The view In official quarter Is . that
Franc seoures a fair degree of success on
the principal questions relating to the po
lice and 'state bank. However, it Is reo-
ognixed that neither France nor Germany
has secured all that waa wanted. France'
deslr to have control of the police waa
partially realised In it being allowed to
police th important Atlantic port In
cluding Mogador, whloh Germany waa sus
pected a coveting, and also with it ally,
Spain, to police Tangier and Caaa, Blanca.
On th otliLT hand, it la thought that
Germany's deslr to Internationalize Mo
rocco wa partly realised, aa the Franco
Bpanlah police Is subordinated to an In
spector who will report to th diplomatic
corps. Thus both countries in a measure
wer successful, but each la ao safe-
guarded that neither will be able to claim
a victory. France' pad tie penetration of

- READINO, Pa., April 1. Thl wa an
unusually busy Sunday on th main line of
the Reading railway. Yesterday' product
of the mine of th Schuylkill region,
amounting to 1,000 car load of coal, were
sent out. Many empty care have been
rushed to the Bchuylktll region and these
will be distributed to the collieries early
in the morning in the belief that some of
th mines will be in operation, though
the officials have no assurance on thi
point. Anthracite shipments to th west,
which hav recently been heavy, hav
been topped and th company has .con
centrated ita output entirely in the east.
If the miner fall to report for work In
th morning, I la expected that within
forty-eight hour th -n n In "the coal
carrying trade will be laid off, and thlq'wlll
be followed by curtailment of work at the
hop all, along the main line. Many for

ful canvas among their men to ascertain
whether aay of them were likely to fail
to obey th suspension order tomorrow.
Thi evening they said they were positive
every union man would remsln away from
tha mine. The nonunion men, they said,
will probably report for work, but their
number is hotufflclently large to permit
the operation of any of the collieries In this
district. ' ,
MAHANOY CITY, Pa., April 1. Every
colliery in the Mahanoy region will b In
readlnea for operation tomorrow, notwith
standing tli order of President Mitchell to
th men to cease work pending th outcom
of th conference In New York between
the miner and opetator. The compnU
will guarantee protection to all mho deslro
to work. Extra engine and crew war
pressed into . service on the Mahanoy
Shamokln division of th Reading railway
oday, hurrying coal from the mines to tide
water and storage point.
W1LKESBARRK, Pa., April 1. Most of
the miners and other workmen were busy
last night and today removing their tools
