' ~'ashington, Nov. 26.--The annual report of Secretary ltitchcock of the Interior Department has been made public. The report highly indorses the work and recommendations of Com- missioner of Pensions Evans and says that the veterans have no more sincere friend tlmn their commissioner, "who has served as an enlisted man in the armies of the United States, and he but maintains and defends the honor of their patriotic service when refus- Ing to Ignore both the letter and spirit of the law. he declines to permit the impostor, whether clahnant or agent, to share in the bounty provided for the veteran and those dependent upon him." The report indorses the conclusions submitted by Comndssioner of Indian Affairs Jones "regarding the present In. dlan education system. The secretary says: "The management of the In(~lan ser- vice inthe field and schools, while sat- lsfactory under existing conditions, is not deemed to be the best for the wel- fare of the Indians, and different meth- ods will hereafter be adopted. This policy contemplates requiring the work- ing by Indian allottees able to do so of a fair portion of lands allotted them and the contributing by their industry to their own support of all not entirely disqualified by actual disability, phys- fcal or otherwise, the discontinuance of the Issue of rations to those able to support themselves, and the extension to the latter of every possible aid for their well being and encouragement; the inauguration of industrial training in all schools which are not now estab- lished, so that such Indians of beth sexes may be taught the trades or in- dustries . adapted to their circum- stances," The income of the various Indian tribes from all sources aggregated $5,- 388,880, a falling off of $260,952, mostly due to the expiration of treaty obliga- tions. The curriculum of Indian schools, the secretary says, should be restricted to the common school course and the further extension of non-reser. cation schools not be permitted. In the future full leasing privileges will be confined to those whose disability or inability actually disqualifies them from working any part of their allot- ments, and in a lesser degree to those whose disability prevents their work- ing more than a small part of their al- lotments, all other allottees to be re- quired to work at least forty acres of their allotment. The Dawes commission to the five civilized tribes in Indian Territory re- ,imrrs that the rolls of membership of only one nation, the Seminoles. so far, have been approved, and their lands have not yet been entirely allotted. The time cannot be fixed with. cer- tainty when the enrollment of the fakir remaining tribes will be finished. There is a vast amount of labor yet to be per- formed by the commission and Secre- tary Hitchcock recommeuds that the commission be increased by Iour mem- bers. The secretary says the net earnings of the bond-alded and land grant rail- roads amounts to over $13.000.000 and tbe increase in gross earnings to $37,. 000,000. The increase in expenses for the year was over $24.000,000. The debt of the Central Pacific road to the United States now stands at $58,812c 715.

The earl, who is active in spite of his great age, has been for some years the oldest of the Knights of the Garter, which dec- oration he received from Lord PalJner- ston early in the '60s. and he is also in years the oldest knight companion, although he has not held that decora- tion as long as the Duke of Cambridge, who received his blue ribbon from Wil- liam IV. When is a cigarette not a cigarette.* When it is a pipe. The answer to the conundrum was given by English magistrates. The taking of a tobacco plpe Into a certain mine was prohib- ited. A partly smoked cigarette was found in a workman's pocket. The man was arraigned and fined. The Judges held that a paper charged with tobacco was a pipe within the mean- ing of the rule. It was an instance of applied common sense. Human life is of more value than literal construc- tion. The petty court was merely il- lustrating a working principle observ- ed in tribunals of a more august or- ganization and a larger Jurisdiction. Ths American boy is ahead of the English boy, in the Judgment of Sir Thomas Lipton, because he gets a bet- tar chanc~ to show what is in him. In America the managers of ,large con- cerns axe often very youthful. In Eng- lgnd their youth would be a disqualifi- cation, since there a man must look old before he la thought to look wilds. Sir Thomas believes that to be "a great error of policy in the affairs of a na- tion, a business firm or a family." He himself came to this country when he was fifteen years old. He declares his experience here "the best commercial training I ever had." and holds that it wou}d be a good thing to send every English boy' to America when he is ~venteen, and to keep him there for a couple of years." This is generous and even flattering to us, bv~ Sir Thomas* countrymen may find a flaw in the argument, reasoning from their point of vlew~that after the English boy had been here two years they might not be able to get him hack, Arizona is interested and the camp~ of Dos Cabezas is in a fever of ex- eltement over the d/scovery ot s new :. iflacer fields in the southern lmrt of .

Davis to the Pan- American railway \committee of the international Ameridan conferences Ires been submitted to the session of the conference. Mr. Davis says in his re- port that there is nothiRg lmpractica. ble nor visionary in the construction of the road or the flotation of the neces- sary stock. He remarks that each of such systems as the Pennsylvania, the New York Central, the. Atchison. the Northern Pacific. the Union Pectic. the Southern Pacific, the Southern rail- way and others have a greater mileage than is now necessary to assure the realization of the Intercolonial railroad. while the bonds and shares outstand- ing of each of such systems are in ex- cess of the sum estima%ed as necessary for the c~nstructlon of the railroad in question. The Russian government has Just completed, says the senator, a rail- road through Siberia at a cost consid- erably in excess of the amount esti- mated as necessary for the completion of an American intercontinental rail- road, and in doing so has overcome greater natural difficulties than are to be looked for in the construction of the latter. Mr. Davis estimates the mileage of the lntercpntinental railroad to be con- structed a~ 5,000 miles, in order to link existing systems, and calculates the cost at $200,000,000, or at the rate of $40,00~ per mile, Among the recommendations made in the report are the following: That a railroad connecting all or tha greater part of the nations represented in the conference will contribute pow- erfully to the "development of the ma- terial relations and interests of the said nations. That property, real and movable, of the railroad employed in construction and operation of the road be exempted from all national, provincial, state and municipal taxation. That the realization of a work of such magnitude deserves to be encour. aged by me~ns or subventions, land grants or guarantees of minimum rate of Interest. That the railroad be declared forever neutral In order to assure freedom of traffic. That the delegates to the conference recommend with~ all possible earnest. ness to their several governments the granting of liberal concessions to the enterprise, in such form as may ap- pear most suitable to each government. The suggestion 1~ also made that the United States send a competent person to all of the republics 9f America to study the resources of the s~Vem! com~trie~, the io~tio~ and status of ex. i~lng rallrbads, y~ve tm~le for the railroad when built and the con- cession each government would be dis- posed to grant. It is also suggested the committee become permanent. FIVE WEEKS ALLOWED TO TEA.R DOWN FENCES Cheyenne, Wyo.. Nov. 26.--(Denver Republican Special.) -- The United States court room was crowded yester- ady afternoon when A. A. Spaugh, the Mannville eaf~le man, who was on Sat- urday convicted of illegally fencing a tract of 225,000 acres of governmen~ land, appeared to receive his sentence. After reviewing the trial, Judge Ri, nor stated that the court would give the defendant until January 2d to re- move the fence inclosing the govern- ment land and at that time sentence would be imposed according to the merits of the ease. Mr. Paugh stated that he would use all diligence in seeing that the fence is removed at once, and it is expected that the sentence imposed will be mere- ly a nominal fine if the mandate of the court is carried out and aH of the fence is removed by January 2d. The area enclosed by SpaughM fences is ap- proximately 500.000 acres, of which about 300,000 acres is government land. He was indicted for fencing 225,. 000 acres. This will make about 300,000 acres to be thrown open to the public for grazing purposes. The work of tear- lng down these fences is a big task, Mr. Spaugh estimating that it will take thirty men thirty days to complete the work. There are about 120 miles of fencing. The example of Spaugh probably will be followed .by other fencers of gov- ernment land, .as this case has been watched by many stockmen and com- panies, who. doubtless, will accept as final the decision of this first test case.

To the people of Colorado, the, most important political utterance of the year Is contained in the interview which Senator XVolcott gave to.the Denver Republican of yesterday, and which is reprinted in full in other col nmns of this paper. The interview will be interesting to both the friends and the enemies of Mr. Woleott: The former will like it, seeing in it the expression of the man's well-known character; the latter will dislike and fear it, for it means Re- publican success in the future; no one who is interested in polities at all, or In the best Interests of the state of Colorado. can be indifferent to it. To those Republicans wire stood by the party in this state in 1896. Mr. Wol- eott will always be The Senator. They cannot forget that at a time when ev- ery other member of Congress from the states that were pronounced in their favor for free silver deserted his party and went over to the Opl)osition. there was one great exception. They canner forget that when it meant probably political death to him--the end of his public life, his defeat for re-election. and the foulest torrent of abuse and misrepresentation that ever fell upon a public man--still he stood by the old party, and gallantly bore the brunt of the fight in that, hopeless contest. In the eyes of some people it seems to be regarded as a crime, or at least as a serious fault, for a man to have voted for McKinley the first time. Those who did do so, and wire worked to- gether during that campaign, are bound together by a tie closer than or- dinary political affiliation. For the past few years, and notably in the past year, a number of papers in the state, mostly Democratic or Pop- ulist, but including a few that are nmn- inally Republican, have been making a concerted and systematic effort to rep- resent Mr. Wolcott as a bogy-man, and his appointees to federal office as inso- i Hi,, i , , ,,, POWERFUL GERMAN COMBINE TO CONTROL THE SUGAR MARKET London, Nov. 23.~The British sugar plus the bounty, they are able not only magnates assert that their investiga-[to make up for this, but to reap a tions have revealed the existence in ] handsome profit in addition to gaining Germany of a great trust called that absolute control of,the sugar market.

The exact extent of the "kartell was discovered, they say, only quite re- cently. The magnitude of its opera- tions supplies the missing factors in the present alarming conditions of the sugar market. The abolition of this organization will be one of the chief objects of the na- tions other than Germany attending the forthcoming Brussels conference. Already British firms have entered into all producers and refiners to keep up, the price of sugar in Germany. This is done so successfldly that German con- sumers to-day pay as much for sugar~ as the Briton does for the same article imported from Germany. The members of the kartell bind: themselves to buy from and sell to only those affiliated with the combine. has worked so satisfactory that the kartell now includes practically every factor of the sugar interests in Germ- any from the agricultural producer to. negotiations with leading American the refiner. The latter agrees to pay sugar interests, and tables are now "be- 12.75 marks per hundredweight for the" lag drawn up showing the transae- raw article, alth(mgh natural condi- tions of the kartell with a view of sub- tions might ordinarily allow him to~ mitting them to the authorities at buy three marks cheaper.

Tne latest figures available in Lon- don show that Germany now produces one-th'ird of the world's supply of beet sugar, of which she exports no less than 1,250,000 tons. after completely supplying her own population. These exports, which are almost one- fifth of the world's available supply, are sent out at a loss to German manu- facturers, but thanks to the kartell to the consumer. The enormous prof- .its consequent upon the,~e methods are pooled in the kartell and are divided upon an elaborate and ingenious scale" and the surplus product is disposed of at a slight loss in European and Amer- ican markets, though even this deficit ls often made up by the bounty that Germany provides.

There is this much of truth in the criticisms that have been made on the conduct of the Republican party in this state for the past few years; that lie- publican office-holders have been more prominent than was wine or prudent. Mr. Woleott knows this as well as any. body. He says in his interview, what the present writer knows to be true of his own knowledge, that the present chairman of the Republican state cen- tral committee. Mr. Ford. at first re- fused to take the chairmanship on the ground that he was a federal appointee, and at last did take it with the great- est reluctance, and with the convic- tion that it was not a wise thing for the party. He took it as a duty thrust ~pon him. and he Ires done his best. No one who has had anything to do with him as chairman can say that he has ever been unfair or dishonest. In the late campaign in Arapahoe county, Mr. Wolcott says that he is informed that Mr. Bailey, who is United States marshal, took the chair- manship of the county committee on the urgent wish of Republicans there. to whose Judgment he deferred, and against bls own wish. We believe it was a political mis- take to make any federal office holder prominent in that way, and we have no doubt Mr. Ford and Mr. Barley would bo~h be only too glad to resign f~om the chairmanships which they took with reluctance, as soon as anybody can be found to fill their places. But caricatures of such men as these in the opposition press, representing them to be coarse and tyrannical slave-drivers* are as false as they are brutal and disgusting. In regard to parry rules, everybody here knows that in this county there have never been any party rules that could keep out anybody who Wanted to get in, nor any reason why every Re- publican who desired to do so should not have some voice in party manage- ment. In Arapahoe county it has been different. In 1896 and for a year or two thereafter, there was danger that the Republican organization iu that county would be captured by its ene- mies and furned over bodily to the Fu- sionists; and in order to prevent this, strict rules were made. and nobody was allowed to vote as a Republican storm, assembled to witnes~ the merg- ing of the submarine boat Fulton. that craft rose from the bottom of Peconic Bay, which is at the eastern end of Long Island. at 10:30 o'clock yesterday morning, after having been under wa- ter fifteen hours, with all well and greatly surprised to find there was a storm raging. The test of the Fulton's staying was highly satisfactory, not only to the offi- cers of the company tha~ built her and the naval officers present, but to those who went to the bottom in the boat. They report that there was no,t the slightest discomfort to them during their more than fifteen hours of sub- mersion below the surface. Captain Cable of the Holland com- p~my, who was in command, said that the boat could have remained down for three months if there were food enough on board. Although there was tbut six feet of water over the top of the turret, those on board felt nothing of the storm. Through the night there over the work of the Fulton thus far.

Rear Admiral Lowe said later: "When we went down I assisted Captain CabI~ in making an inspec- tion of the ship. Then I retired, while the crew played cards and read. Ev- ery few hours I was awakened and made lu~pectlons of the conditions. "Not once did I notice any sign of' bad air, gas or any other impurity. Considering that we did not draw on the tanks at all.

He has relatives who llve in Philadelphia. They were able to guar- antee that he would not become a pub- lic charge and he had means of his own. The authorities at Ellis island were satisfied on that score, but they de- clined 'to admit him because examina- tion showed he had tuberculosis of the lungs, He appealed to the Treasury Department and a re-examination was ordered. The Treasury Department ordered that Mr. Baden be sent back he takes his place in the ranks; and next year the Republicans will vote for legislators, not because they are for any particular candidate for the Senate, but because they are consid- ered good men to send to the Legit- tufa. So far as he has been a "boss," he abdicates. He puts the matter as plainly as anyone could put when he says: "When Colorado wins its next Republican victory it will be when these (independent) voters believe theft no man and no set of men dominates our party, and when we present a ticket made up of good men in whose ~omination every Republican has had, or has had the opportunity of having, full and free and equal, voice." Such open and frank recognition as this of a political fault, by a gre~t party leaders, is rare, but It is Just what the friends of Mr. Wolcott have expected of him.
