GINNING OF THE SUIT TO TEST THE REVENUE LAW PUeblo, Colo., July 8.--~rlthout form- cause of action in this case. Mr. Mar- making his ruling on the state's risen urged that the entire cause of for a change of venue in action was in Arapahoe county and proceeding brought to test the concluded his argument by urging the revenue bill, Judge N. Walter Dlx- greater convenience of trial of the case the Pueblo District Court indi- in Arapahoe county. This caused so elearly that he will deny the Judge Dixon to suggest that geograph- in the morning that attorneys ically i~leblo county is the nmst con- for the state and for the various rail- venient of access from all parts of the state, and therefore iu the matter 0f convenience the natm, al eounty since r~ds entered into an agreement by the arguments on the state's de- will be taken up next Monday. on the side of the state when this afternoon there were addition to Attorney General Post ~nd Assistant Attorney .General ;Oaesar Roberts, R. S. Morrison and T. M. Patterson, whose sp- in the case was entered after formal opening of the proceedings this ~ternoon. Representing tile petition- railroads were Wlllard Teller, E. Cast, C. E, Herrington, It. Dubbs and C. W. Waterman. 'As preliminary t() the argument on for a change of venue to Atop- :Shoe county, Attorney General Post filed with the court a demurrer pro- in the first instance against as- of jurisdiction in the case by District Court of Pueblo and de- to the proceedings on five sep- arate grounds. In the first place, on the grounds that the court has no Jurisdiction of the persons of the re- spondents or of the subject matter of the action; second, that the court has Jurisdiction of the person of the re- James B. Orman, governor Colorado, since the governor is a party respondent in his official eapaeity; finally, in general i~erms that the writ does not state suf- ~lieient cause for action. Attorney Morrison alined the argu- ment for the state on the motion for a change of venue, eontending for the e21egations set up in the motion filed last Saturday. Judge Dixon speedily ~ade it cleat" that under the law his ~View was that the question of change venue depended on construction of statutes permitting the brin#ng of mandamus proceedings in a ccunty in Which the whole 9r a part of the cause -of action arose. Judge Dixon then upon counsel to enter into the the personal attendance of the re- spondent officers under the bill would probably not be required. Senator Patterson was emered as of counsel for the state, and after paying a tribute to Pueblo county entered up- on discussion of the points involved. He read the statute to show that the alleged failure of the state officers to act as a board of equalization was the cause of action and that was neces- sarily confined to Arapaho.e county. He urged the right of the state officers to the change asked. Attorney General Post followed out the same line of m'- gument and then C. W. Waterman of counsel for the Denver & I'do Grande railroad replied to the attorneys for the state. His contention was that the cause of action is in Pueblo county since the meeting of the ~State Board of Equalization in Denver is only pre- liminary to the filing of assf~ssment rolls for railroads in the various coun- ties. Mr. Waterman entered at length into the law, after which Willard Tel- ler reinforced the position taken by Mr. Waterman. Attorney General Post made a brief closing statement for the state and Judge Dixon an- nounced that he would take the matter under advisement until to-morrow morning. In making this iannouneement Judge Dixon said the application for a change of venue seemed either like a decided reflection upon the Pueblo court or like a great compliment to the Arapahoe county court. He said the case before him involves matters of greatst moment to all the people of the state and that an action to test the revenue law, which is the purpose of this proceeding, might in one way or another be filed in any or every coun- ty in the state. ,4~I-+++++++++++++++++++++++++.V+++++ + ~+ ++~.~+ DERFUL GROWTH OF OUR AGRICULTURAL EXPORTS Washington, July 9.--Frank H. /tltcheoek, chief of the foreign market section of the Agricultural Department, has compiled statistics showing the distribution of the agrieultural ex- Ports of the United States for the years 1896-1900. He shows that there were a dozen countries in~:[900 to each of Which the United Sta~es exported over $10,000,000 worth of domestic products. The United I~ingdom purchased $408,- 000.000 and Germany $134,000,000 Worth. Onr agricultural exports to the Unlt- ~'~d Kingdom were the largest on rec- ord, excepting those of the extraordin. dry year of 1898,. when a value of $439,000,000 was attained. In our trade with Germany, the ex- Ports f6r 1900 were decidedly in excess Of any previously reported, and show an increase of nearly 100 per cent. in the five yeats period. Next in order to the above named ii Countries in 1900 were the following: The Netherlands, $52,000,000, these " figures being exceeded only in 1899 by 1~ than $1,000,000; France, $45,000,- 000; Belgium, $33,000,000, as against $31,000,000 in 1896:to France, and $18,- 000,000 to Belgium during the same Italy, $24,000,000; Canada, $21,, ; Japan, over $15,000,000; Den- ~ark, nearly $15,000,000; Cuba, $14,. ~v00,000, as against $4,000,000 in 1896; 8Pain, $10,500,000, as against a trifle less than $10,000,000 in 1806; British Africa, $10,300,000. Exports ranging in value from $5,, 555,000 down went to more than a dozen other different countries. The total exports of domestic farm Products to Cuba, Porto Rico, Hawaii and the Philippine islands in 1900 bad an aggregate value of over $20,000,000 fie compared with 0nly $6,200,000 in 1896. South An|erica was the only conti- nent to which our agricultural exports for the .past five years show a decline-- from $11,236,000 in 1896, to $9,452,000 in 1900. The most striking gain was iu our exports to Asia, rising front $5,735,000 in !896 to nearly $23,000,000 in 1900. The principal part of our agricultural exports in 1900 found a market in Eu- rope, sales to European countries hav- ing an aggregate value of $739,0(D,000. With the exception of the phenomenal year 1898, when thdy reached $762,000,- 000, these figures are the largest on record. In 1896 they were $503,000,000. To the vaxiou~ North American coun- tries the exports in 1900 were $55,000,- 000; in 1899, $58,000,000, and in 1896, $44,OOO,OOO. The ten principal items in our agri- cultural exports trade for 1900 were: Breadstuffs .............. $262,744,078 Cotton ................... 242,98~978 Meat products ........... 173,751,471 Live animals ............. 43,585,031 Tobacco ................. 29,422,371 t Oil cake and oil cake meal. 16,806,302 ~regetable oils ............ . 16,345,056 Fruits and nuts ........... :11,642,662 1 Dairy prod~cts ........... 9,226,520 Seeds ................... 7,306,982 1 Others ................... 31,067,079 Total .................. $844,616,g80 Total in 1896 ........... 574,398,~ ' About half the trade In breadstuffs In 1900 ~ent to the United Kingdom, with Germany next at $32,029,000.

July 8.--(Denver News Special.l--All sign of the Strike 'el the Smuggler-Union and its recent ~,rious culmination is rapidly disap- l}earing. The prOperty to-day, present- ed an active and animated appearance. Harmony and a general good feeling Prevails in both Marshall basin and in town. This morning Manager Collins made it known that there was ro~m for 150 men at the Smuggler, and in a short time the trail was lined with miners and others returning to work. To-night it is said that all men needed for the present have been given era- ' ployment, numbering bet~'~n 150 and 200. One of the large mills of the Smuggler company is undergoing re- pairs~: making it necessary to employ ~on.lT~. comparatively'Small force until ~t is ready for operathm. The Tomboy ? ~ines and mill are running. Work was resumed on the Liberty Bel[ mine yes- ~terday and the mill will be started to- morrow morning. The off~cers of the local Miners' union called a meeting for last night, w'hieh Was attended by between 300 and 400 members. The agreement reached Sat- urday evening and the basfs of the set- tlement was discussed, and at the con. chmion of the remarks the strike inaug- urated on May 1st was unanimously declared off. It Is the intention of both parties to the agreement to live up to it in spirit and in letter. Few, if any, of the miners driveni o~'er the range have returned to ~heJ camp, Under Military Jurisdiction. Denver, July 9.--Judge Mullins was called upon yesterday to pass upon a question of law defining the Jurisdie- tlon of civil and military authority. June 3d last iI. C. Ayres, a civilian, was killed near Fort Logan by Ser- geant E. D. WrTght of the Thirteenth infantry. W,right was in search of a miUtary prisoner who escaped from the post, mistool~ Ayres for his man and killed him. Upon demand from the'district at- torney's office Wright was promptly turned over to the civil altthorities by the commandant of-the post. His trial came up in the \vest side court, and af- ter an argument on a technical point of law Wright was discharged. Judge Mullins sustained a motion fay dismis- sal upon the grounds that the civil au- thorities were without jurisdiction and that the case was one for the United States Court. It is not likely that Wright will be arrested by lhe United States authorities, as it has already been shown that the shooting was ac- cidental. Texas' Great Oil Field, St. Louis, July 9.--Dispatches from Corpus Christi, Texas, state that while speaking of the great lubricating oil strike made at Piedras Pintos, in Du. val couqty, thirty miles from Corpus Christi, last week, a prominent geol- ogist of that place asserted that un- derneath Ducal and Nueees counties is an "immense lake of oil which ex. tends as far south as Tamplco, Mex. ice, and is the largest in the world. Nearly a dozen wells are being sunk near the new gusher, capitalists are flocking to the place, land has in- creased in value ten fold and a new town will be laid off at once. Wheat Burned. Great Bend, Kan., July 9.--Fifteen thousand acres of wheat went up tn flames here yesterday afternoon. The fire was started by an unknown man throwing a lighted cigar into a field of wheat stubble. Everything was as dry as tinder, and soon a destructive fll~e was in progres~ from the small begin- ning. ~. _. WASHINGTON GOSSIP. ~lk~$ l~ural Free Delivery, tThere is a strong probability that during the coming fiscal year the mon- ey order system will be incorporated in the rural free delivery service, and that carriers on rural routes will be permit- ted to issue money orders, the same as postmasters at duly autilorized offices. An attem,pt was nmde to have this ex- tension consununated during the pres- ent year, but the pressure for the es- itabltshment of new routes was so great that little time was left for con- sideration of improvements in the ser- vice. There has been some fear lest this new provision might be a little too progressive at this time, but the de- partment is about convinced that the change can be made safely, and to the benefit of the people living along rural routes. The change, if adopted, will not be made at once, probably not be- tore next winter, but it is sure to come. The forthcoming report of the post- i master general will show that the cost of maintaining rural free delivery has i materially lessened d nring the current flseal year. This decrease is largely due to two causes; the discontinuance of a larger percentage of fourth-class postoffices than heretofore, and the cor- responding discontinuance of star routes which supplied the same. In previous years the fourth assistant postmaster general, acting under more or less pressure from the different fourth-class postmasters, has been re- ~nctant about discontinuing fourth-class offices whose patrons were served by rural carriers. Thus the department had to support not only the rural ser- vice, but the postoffice as well. In like manner, in the interest of the carriers, the seoond assistant postmaster goner. al did not favor the discontinuance of ~tar routes, even when supplanted by rural free delivery. Since that time, however, tile post- master general has talked the whole ~ubject over with his assistants, and from the beglnn!ng of tlTe current fiscal Fear the two reluctant officials have ziven in and have consented to the prompt discontinuance of fourth- ~'lass offices and star routes, when ask- ~-I for by the rural free delivery set= rice. There will l)e a large saving to the department as a result of this ~hange. It seems ttmt the rural free ~lelivery is the latest innovation in pos- ~al circles, and tim older lines of ser- vice are jealous of the universal popu- larity which has marked the spread 9f the rural service. Rural free delivery has come to stay. On the 1st of July, 18,99. there were some 1,200 routes in operation in the United States. That was an increase of 900 over the year previous. It is es- timated that on July 1st next, there will be in the neighborhood of 4.300 rural routes in operation in the Unit- ed States. In'addition to th'Ts it ts said that this rural serviee is much faster approaching the state of self-suste- nance than did the city free dell'very when inaugurated back in the '60s. It is not contended that It will ever be- come self-supportlng, for it is not be- lieved that postal service will lever sus- tain itself, but it is a fact pointed to with pride that there are now a num- ber of rural free delivery routes in the thickly settled communities that are now being operated at a marked profit. The service is now pretty thoroughly established in the East. It shows a greater proportionate gain in the West than elsewhere, and its limitation in those states is only because of many sparsely settled sections which cannot support the service. ~[ust Have ~Ireless Telegraphy. Rear Admiral Bradford, chairman of the boar(]~of equipment, will point out in his annual report, says a Herald dispatch from Washington, tile neces- sity of equipping American men-of- war with a system of wireless teleg- raphy. As soon as the appropriation ts obtained he will recommend the sys- tem o be adopted for the naval ser- vice. Believing that Commander Richard Clover, naval attache in Lon- don, is deeply occupied with his cur- rent work, the rear admiral has rec- ommended to Secretary Long that a wireless telegraph expert be sent to England o represent the navy in the trials of the two new systems devel- oped by the Lloyds agency. Having made arrangements for the establish- ment of coal depots on the New Eng- land coast, the Navy Department will now give special attention to the Pa- cific. A depot capable of accommo- dating 10,000 tons of coal will be lo- cated at San Diego, California. In- structions have been sent to Captaln Mery at Honolulu to begin condemna- tion proceedings at Pearl Harbor, which is to be the site of a large naval station. Nine hundred acres of land will be acquired. Secretary Hitchcock lmnounced at a recent Cabinet meeting that he is pre- paring to organize a forestry bureau in the Interior Department re carry out an extensive system of reforestra. lion, somewhat on the plan so success- fully pursued in Germany. Postmaster General Smith-has ren. dered a decision covering a large num- ber of complaints that ha~,~ been made tO the department from v" arious parts of the country against certain mail carriers in the rural free delivery ser- vice who have under their general priv- ilege of nmking purchases for patrons along their routes been buying whis- ky in quarts and pints and delivering it. The postmaster general's order is very positive in forbidding this prac- tice, and the rural free delivery car- rier who hereafter violates this rule will be subject to instant dismissal from the service. Postmaster General Smith expresses his belief In the duty ~f tile government to provide rural free delivery nnd to allow cert~fln car- riers to make themselves useful and cohvenient as possible consistent with good morals and the proper perform- ance of their duty as mail carriers strictly. Sonar Don Rafael Saldivar. the Sal- vadorean minister to Washtugton, has left for his home. His health has s(lf- fered somewhat and he goes home to recuperate. There will be a temporary delay in the prosecution of the two claims against his government which the State Department has preferred In the interest of Amerleans amounting to about $500,000, lint it is stated there Is every prospect that an amicable set- tlement will be reached by September 2$th. next.

(~LASS HE|C-A-BR~. Glass, though proverbially brittle, will ~tand any amount of hard usage; but once it is broken the only thing that remains to be done ts to throw it away. Cementing will not do much good. If the stem of a wine glass or vase is broken mending is sometimes possible by applying to the joints some easily fusible cement, such as shellac. through a silver tube. Glass that has been properly an- nealed will stand variations of tem- perature perfectly well, but if this hasn't been done it is likely to break instantly and without apparent rea- son. Frequently globes and chimneys fly to pieces when not properly heated. This is due to draught or moisture upon the chimney, especially lamp chimneys, which will crack from top to bottom, even after the lamp has been extinguished. Glass vases used for flowers fie- quently become coated with an un- pleasant deposit in the inaccessible parts of the inside. This Is due to de- cayed stems of flowers that are left too long in the water. This deposit may be removed by cleaning with a cloth that has been dipped in pumice stone powder. Cane, if beaten fiat with a hammer and dipped into the powder, makes an excellent brush and holds the pumice stone in position between the fibres. IHydrochloric acid one part acid to eight parts water, w'ill remove any or- I dinary deposit. If this does not have the desired effect the quantity, of acid Imay be increased. It is advisable to keep the hands out of the acid as much as possible, as it is injurious and often cracks the finger nails. OUR LOVE FOR SWEETS. Americans are a sugar-loving peo- ple, and our taste for sweets is ln- creasing. We not only increase our consumption with the increase of 'population. but individually we con- sume more each year. says the Atlanta Journal. Last year we consumed 2,219,847 tons of sugar, which was 141,- 779 tons more than we ate the year before. This does not mean only that our sugar devouring population had in- creased, but It means that while each man, woman mad child--if he got his or her proportion--consumed sixty-one 'pounds of sugar in 1899, he or she consumed a little more than 66~ pounds in 1900.

The waist is simply cut, fitting the figure, and with a little fullness drawn in at the waist line in front. It has a high- cut neck and is fastened in the back finished with a box plait, which has the effect of being continued in the skirt, where a single box plait is ear- rled down to the long~ train. The skirt is without trimming, and the waist is embroidered in the front and around the collar with pearls, the yoke being of mousseline outlined with pea~'l em- broidery.
