OarFuRiun CcmmcrcB of 1899 Breaks
Hut This Loss is More Than Offset by
Our Astonishing Sale of Mer
chandise. Washington, Nov. Is1. The foreign
commerce of the I' railed States seeo.s
likely to make its highest record of the
century in the closing year of that
p'-riod. The October export are larger
than thnte of any preceding October,
the total for the ten month ending with
October it greator than the t t.il for the
corresponding period in any preceding
year, and it i9 apparent that for the Brtt
lime in our history the foreign com
merce of the year w ill not exceed $2,000,.
OuO.OoO. For the ten month ending
with October, ls'.Kl, the figure of the
treasure bureau of autistic show the
total exports to be $1 ,02.C42,O0O, w bile
io the corresponding month of last
year they were $ys7,R79,0O0.
The remarkable increate in exporta
tion It the more rurpnoing localise ol
the absence of the excessive demand
abroad for our brradHtufl, which char
acteriz?d the year 1SVS. In that year
the short crops abroad and plentiful
supplies of bredataQ of all kind in the
United State resulted in an abnormal
large exportation of breadstuff, so thai
the exportation of agricultural prod lets
in the present year naturally fail about
$:i.i,OiH),000 below that of the correspond
ing period of last rear. Yet the total
exportation for the ten months are, as
already indicated, more than $10,000,000
in excess of those of Inst year.
It I easy, however, to find the caoe
of this reuiAtkable growth in our total
rxp irtations, which occur In the face
of tho reduction in our exportation of
breidstulT. An examination of thede
Uiled figure of the nine u out lis of the
year already accessible tho that the
export of manufactures in that period
were $--0,C0O,0OO In excess of those ol
the corresponding months of the preeed
lug year, and $V),000,000 greater than
those of the Mint month of 1H'i7, w hile
the products ol the mino were $4,000,000
greater than those of the corresponding
month of last year, and those of the
forest $,(:O0,000 in exces of the corre
sponding months ol the preceding year.
Thus the year' exportation of agricul
tural production will be quite up to the
normal, while those of manufacture,
mining and forestry will excewl those of
last year, and Indeed, of any year in our
Fatal Kow in a Saloon.

Gentile Oppose Robert.
Salt Lakh, Nov. 19. The Democratic
state committee bad a meeting yester
day, chiefly to consider the Robert ease.
Jaine If . Moyle, chairman and a Mor
mon, urged that counter-petition be
gotten np, providing t1 at I'.olierts be

saying that they bad voted for Roberts
a a Democrat, on the expectation that
he would be able to clear up all the
charges made against him by the op
pojiiion, a be had agreed to do. Roberts
was arraigned for what wa called hi
bad faith in f.iilir.g to do this, and it was
declared that he had made a football of
the Democratic party, as well a of
prominent Democrat. Tiie Gentile
Democrat were unanimous in opposition
to the proposition to get tip etitirni
for Ribert. Thereupon the Mormon
member dropped the roatttr, the chief
purpose of the meeting having failed. A

the approval of the chief of engineers.
The opinion ol the engineer Is that the
proposed improvement ia one ot the
most important to be presented to con
gress. It 1 expected that favorable
action by congres looking to the 40-foot
channel will be followed immediately
with another proposition for a channel
of thirty feet from the mouth of the
Columbia to Portland. Those who are
familiar with the commerce of the river
and condition now existing tav both
these improvement should be made
with the least possible delav.

especially the great r.g' plantation.
Sugar is rarely seen on any of the plan
