All enlistments ,ne for thtce years and
the number of icerults averages about

Otherwise It would be Impossible to
keep the Philippine army up to tho

It cannot be gathered that any very
late advices have caused the chang? in

It Is said that nothing has been re
ceived to show any marked change In
the status In Venezuela since yester
day, when Milliliter Loomls spoke of
the (suppression of a lebelllon among
the troops In Caracas, the very Incep
tion of which was unknown to tho de
paitment of state. The fact that sucu
a movement could gain headway in
Castro's own capital, however. Is very
significant, and this rebellion among
the troops maj have led to the decis
ion to retain the Scorpion at h:i Gulra,
tho nearest port to Caracas.
The naval authorities were consulted

thing Is In prospect, it cannot be
learned that any positive orders have
yet gone out.
There In. no di&piv-Itlon on the part
of the authorities hen: to go to any
unusual length In dealing with this
situation, and they saj frankly that It
Is not a. part of their purpose to brow

"The queen, dm lug the past year,

ally bo felt at the Indisposition of

aunuuncment issued last evening has
caused a i-hock to the country, the
effect of which It would be dllllcult
to exaggerate. Her majesty' abso
lute freedom from Illness during the
longest reign in I.ngllsh history, has

that her majesty's phyblclans have

In most directions tho condition of

characteristic! of tho Iron and steel In

There Is a noticeable lack of new con

many small orders are placed, and
mills nro well occupied on old business
that In most cases will tnko months to

offers. On thl3 nccounl there Is no
urgent haste about securing orders,
and no concession aie made by lead
ing concerns. Kxports Inquiries are
rower, out tnanutactureis exhibit no
concent on this point. Work is so vig
orously prosecuted at the furnaces that
demand for fuel Increases and coke
ptoduetlon In the Connellsvlllo region
expands. Coal also moves more freely
at Plttsburft-, delayed shipments being
hurried fonvnrd with tho aid of high

regarding the proposed tube nnd sheet

in sales of wool at the tiuee chief east
