Washington, Jin. 30. Secretary
Gresham understands that the modus
vivendi between Spam and the
United States, which passed the Sen
ate at Madrid yesterdaj, will go in
to effect immediately. Tae text of
the bill proposed by -iJiaSaajiish
government as published officially in
Madrid is as follows;
"The government j3 authored to
apply to the prodjj"cts &ai .!iaiiafsic
ftus3-p4fcSft'ted Sraks, which,
coming from th ports of the Uni
ted States, lire admitted into the

eecond column of the customs du
ties in force in Cuba and Porto Rica,
in return for the United Gtatci p
p'ying their lowest duties to the pro-
diicta of the soil aud industry of
Cuba aud Porto Eici.
"Thia modus vivendi will remain

the day 011 which it wishes to put an
end to it.
Signed Ale.u xmio GnoizAr.n,

Tr.is action of Spain in restoring
the lowest rates of duty to Aniens
can products is a cotnp cte surrender
to the contention of the United
States that as long as we did not dis
criminate against Cuba or Porto
Rico we were entitled under the.
favored nation clause to the raies
existing heretofore. Failing in that,
the United States wa3 prepared to
retaliate under the provision of the
pure food and ilie acts.

'Mr. J A Kerr, of ner Mare j

a specimen of mcnazite, the mineral
that is used by electricians, etc., and
found only in Wilkes, Iredell and
Alexander counties iu this country.
This whole section of the Sta'e is in
a state of craze over tbe finding of
so profitable a mineral. The ore is
worth from S2C0 to 300 per ton."
We infer from the above that Mr.
Kerr found the monazite if it be
monazite in this county. We hope
he did and that the sample is genu

this valuable mineral would be found

The hard wind3 of last Fridaj
night and Saturday nearly wrecked
the large five story prize house tf
Hooker & Bernard occupied by the
American Tobacco Company. The
South end of the first story is t-ulgs
ed aud careened until it ia about
three feet cut cf i;osition. and il
windows are scattered. The west
side ia sunk in and wr.rpcd out of
shape and the entire floor badly
strained. Prom the second story
up the building seems to l e intact,
but with the immense weight cf the
building and large-stocks of tobacco
bearing 011 the displaced first story it
ia doubtful ifthc building can be
saved. Its appearance became so
dangerous Saturday that the hands
deserted it, and ths remainder of
that day and Sunday tbe collapse of
tne building was lookcu for at any
moment. It is standing yet, and ef
forta have been made to brace it so
that hands can go in and remove the
stock of tobacco. Uundrcd3 of neo
pie have been out to look at it. This
ia the same building thab-blew down
last July when raised to the fourth
story aud injured Eeveral , workmen.
The loss caused by its present con
dition will be heavy upon the owns
era, even it it can be saved short of a
total loss. The American Tobacco
Company havo some tornado insur
aace-ou the stock of tobacco but not
near onough to coyer the large quan
lty Btoreu in the building.
The disaster is indeed an unfor
tunate one, as besides the loss sus
tained 10 the building and stock a
large -tunxber of hands will be tem
porarily thrown out c'i;men.t.. I
