The question of the legality of
the incorporation of towns under
the Arkansas statutes in force in
this country was touched upon
today incidentally by Judge
Thomas. His honor seems to take
the position that auch incorpora-
tions are without authority of law
and that officers acting under such
charter are not warranted in tak-
ing extreme measures in adatlnis-
tering the law. ;
The utterances of Judge Thomas
on the subject of the wotvfov de-
struction of fish by he use of
dynamite and poison we hope will
have the effect of stopping thai
nefarious practice. While a Mick
of giant powder exploded in a bole
of water will secure a few good
fish it will destroy thousands of
small ones and thus cut off the
supply in the future.
A large cumber of those origi-
nally summoned to serve as petit
jurors got excused. And there
seemed to be no lack ofjeady tim-
ber with which to 11 their places.
The juries both grsnd and petit
however are made up of intelli-
:::t men and good citizens.

Back .to tbe Creeks
The 'Tiger murdfir case appealed
from the district court at JMuskogcc
wai remanded back to the Creek au-
thorities for trial. It will be remem-
bered that Tiger was sentenced to be
shot last winter by tbe Creek courts
but was habeased corpused out of the
Creek jurisdiction .and the Jcasc car
rled up by tbe Creek nation.
If every home in this city was not
supplied with a paper last night it
was contrary to Intentions. A half
dozen boys worked like Trojans 'and
run their horses at break-neck speed
to cover the city but they begun late
and it was a big task. Everything
will move off more smoothly is the
days go by.

Tbe matt Jmportant agricultural
product is what iBjintrwn to epramerce
a Manila homp. Thoucandaof tons at
this fiber ia raised annually on the
Pacific slopes o the southern island
where it also grows wild. That this
i the leodtiur produot of the Philip
pines is due to the fact that Its cul
tivation requlree the least effort. With
.only careless attention it is possible to
ralsV many tons to .the acre. The
fiber i obtained from a species of
plantain called abaca a tree ' which
grows to the height of from 15 to 20
feet and is from 8- to 12 inches in
diameter. The trunk may lie at eas-
ily separated as a stalk of celjf. An
ordinary knife only Is required to
cut down the tree and a rude instru-
ment' is used to press out the juice
and shred the fiber. ' After a little
drying in the sun and packing it into
bales of 240 ponnds each it is ready
for shipment.. The United States and
England take -almost the entire crop.
Hemp of this kind is grown nowhere
else In the world. It is said that a
fortune awaits one who can invent a
machine which will .accelerate . the
process of p'ressing out the juice and
pulp leaving only the fiber. A rude
knife and a lever for holding it strong-
ly in position are the instruments' now
In use. ' ;
' Next in the order of importance as
a product of the soil is sugar. The
poorest sugar in the world is produced
in the Philippines and yet the islands
are capable of' producing the best.
The reason for the poor quality lies
in the method of manufacturing and
not in any disadvantage of soil; climate
or character "of the cane which is
superidr in saocharine The methods
of sugar manufacture which prevailed
In the fifteenth century are still in
vogue in the Philippines. V

the crop la an important Qnii anTt-
bacco and cigars h&ve. long haUl th
same reputation in tbe mw1 yiit ui
Havana product holds in the. west.
Lately the industry has shown' a ten-
dency to expand owing to the fact
that the Spanish government realiz-
ing la one instance at least tie effects
of an evil policy has abandoned it
monopoly of the trade.
There are few other products of ag-
riculture to be mentioned. Fruit it
not. oulUvated . but grows wild in
abundance and variety characteristic
of a tropical country. Bananas of de
Ucious flavor orange of poor quality
mangos guavas and many other na-
tive fruits grow wild. There are J
olives or figai and tbere is no vin
culture. Dairy farming has not yet
been established la the ' islands al-
though there i said to be great op
portunity in that direction. Butter ia
Imported from London in bottle and
naturally ie held at a very high price.
Throughout all the Islands of the
archipelago agriculture is et la an
undeveloped state. Vastoppvrtilnitlel
iny be found for exploiting modern
methods of farming. There is nol a
farm in any of the Islands which will
eouiptato favorably with ' even ths
wonit on tbe American continent

There is coal in abundance in Ceira and
Negro. . Gold ia found in the alluvial
deposits along the streams and at the
mouths of Hvert particularly in Luzon
and Mindanao. .Copper exists in the
central districts of Luzon and led is
plentiful In Cebu. Immense deposits
of sulphur are found in the craters of
extinot volcanoes and In some of the
islands there is found a good quality of
iron ore. Hon. Frank A. Yanderlip.lu
