The Mayor also resards It as certain that
no educational Institution which pays any

the benefits of the gift. Nearly all the
other gifts Rockefeller has made to

"What sort of a gift was It. anyway?-'
the Mayor asked. "It was not cash, as
1 understand it. What was it, then? Let
us suppose the- case. Was It Standard
Oil stocks? Hardly. Was it the bonds
of cities, states or perhaps railways?
Most likely it was railway securities.

WRAPPED IN SHEETS OP GOLD
Splendid Tomb of Mummy of Great
LONDON-, Feb. 8. The, Times, in its ar
ticle telling of the discovery of Theodore
Davis at Thebes, Egypt, of the tomb and
mummy of the famous Egyptian Queen,
Teie, says the tomb is a plain square
sepulchre, cut out of rock. It is ap
proached by a descent of steps and ad
joins the tomb of Rameses IX.
The tomb bears witness to the blind
rage of the victorious priesthood of
Thebes and the intensity of their hatred
toward the heretic King, whose mother
and ineplrer was Teie. The Queen's Jew
elry and trinkets of solid gold with which
the sepulchre was filled,, were left un
touched. The coffin is a superb example of the
Jewelry work. The wood part of it is en
tirely covered with a frame of gold, in
laid with lapis lazuli, cornelian and green
glass. The mummy itself was wrapped
from head to foot in sheets of gold.
Theodore M. Davis, who made this sens
ational discovery, is an American. He
makes his home in New York and Kew-

WASHINGTON. Feb. 8. Mayor Schmitz
and the School Board of San Francisco
arrived in Washington at 6:35 this after
noon. Their train was 24 hours late. The
delegation will be received by the Presi
dent tpmorrow morning. Mr. Schmitz
"We have come to Washington with a
free mind to discuss the school question
with the President. The mere fact that
we have responded to the President's in
vitation As sufficient evidence that we
stand ready to make concessions, if we
are convinced that in so doing the entire
country will profit by our action. No
CaJlfornlan, is willing to stand on any
technicality that will work to the detri
ment of the Nation."
Secretaries Root, Taft and Metcalf will
participate in the conference. While the
Callfornians profess that they are of a
"free mind" and willing to make conces
sions, it can be stated on the highest au
thority that the delegation's purpose is to
Insist that the President must have a di
rect understanding with the Tokio Gov

coolies before they will agree to abolish
the Oriental schools of San Francisco and

AA'ould Yield Rather Than Do Injury
CHICAGO, Feb. 8. "Not that I love
Frisco, but my country more. I was
born in San Francisco, and am for her
first, last and always, but still above
all I am an American. I would concede
my position rather than see it become
injurious to the country."
These words, uttered by Mayor Eu

from President Roosevelt.
"I cannot say that the matter will
reach an entirely satisfactory settle
ment during our visit, but we hope it
will. The law as a matter of fact, is
nothing new, but the enforcement of
it seems to have created an agitation.
The law to segregate the Mongolians
in the schools was made in 1881, but
the Japanese claim they are not Mon
golians. The Chinese always have been
segregated in the public schools. The
Japanese think they are better than
the Chinese. I don't care to criticise
President Roosevelt. It is simply a

GREATEST TRADE FIELD

quires 5,000,000 acres of land to grow
enough wheat to keep the mills of
Minneapolis running for a year.
Peoria, 111., makes more spirits and
pays more internal revenue tax to
Uncle Sam than any other city, great
or small, in the Union. Last year Peoria
paid J33.000.000 in internal revenue tax
nearly all of which was on high wines
or alcohol. This was more than twice
as much tax as was paid by any other
city in the country.
Louisville distils more whisky than
any other city, but its solid mile
of wholesale whisky houses is partly
devoted to blending Kentucky whisky
with Peoria high wines and Cincinnati
neutral spirits. Although the Kentucky
metropolis has a mile of street devoted
to whisky, it drops into smaller dis
sipation and devotes nearly as much
space to a tobacco market, which is
the largest In existence.
AA'heels and Agricultural Machines.
Toledo's iron wheels are turning all
over the world. The manufacturers of
the Ohio city never overlook any kind
of an order, from the biggest iron
structures to delicate cut glass bowls
for the tables of the well-to-do class
who buy such things. Toledo profits
from the fact that cut glass, a most
expensive product, has a more eqult
able distribution in he United States
than In any other country.
The manufacture of agricultural im
plements is the life of such prosperous
cities as South Bend, Ind Akron,
Ohio, and Moline, 111. Thousands of our
plows are now being used to rip open
the virgin sod of the Argentine pampas
and the South African veldt. Kansas
City and Dallas have long battled for
the supremacy as distributors of farm
machinery, and of late years the Texas
city has made remarkable strides to
ward victory in the contest . Seven
out of every ten omnibuses in the
United States are made in Quincy. II
The products of the paper mills of the
country, mostly in New England and the
north central states, have Increased
eighteen-fold since I860. Over 3,500,000
cords of wood are being used every year
in, making pulp In our paper mills. Trees
are being turned into newspapers at a
rate which is causing much alarm to
those scientists Interested in preserving
the forests. Leading publishers have
taken time by the forelock and purchased
thousands of square miles of virgin forest
Detroit claims the lead of the world in
the manufacture of automobiles and com
puting machines two great industries
which have grown up inside of five years.
This city possesses 20 automobile-making
establishments, which turn out annually
a product worth J12.000.000. It Is also the
largest producer of pharmaceutical prep
Uncle Sam is a great shoe-maker. He
not only supplies his own wants, but
furnishes foreigners with a large amount
of their footwear. The European sales
man displays the shoe marked "made in
America" as proudly as the carpet man
exhibits his rugs from Turkey. The value
of the annual product of our shoe fac
tories is J3S0.000,00CM-almost enough to
build two Panama canals. Boston and
St. Louis are the great shoe centers. St.
Louis distributes more shoes through its
Jobbing houses than any other American
city, and 60 per cent of the quantity it
distributes is made in its own factories.
The cottonseed oil industry is scattered
all over the South, but its general cen
ter is Memphis. For a century after cot
ton became the king of textile staples.
the cottonseed was despised as a worth
less vexation. Then its utilization was
begun. In 1880 nearly W.000,000 worth of
cottonseed oil and by products was pro
duced. Last year the best estimates
placed the amount at $80,000,000. or 20
times more than the product of 1880.
Pittsburg makes enough steel rails
each day to build over 11 miles of rail
road track. One of the unique features
of the smoky city is its wonderful marine
commerce. It is at the head of naviga
tion on the Ohio River and ships 10,000.
000 tons of freight by water each year,
although boats can only be handled
during the high water stage. If It had a
9-foot stage all the year round, there is
no telling to what dimensions its marine
commerce would reach.
Cities which send the products of the
TTnited States to foreign lands must needs
gather them from within. New York
ships more wheat and receives more
wheat than any other city in the world.
A large portion of this grain has pre
viously been collected at Buffalo. Next
to New York, Portland, Or., at the other
end of the American empire, ships more
wheat than any other city here or
abroad. Portland leads ail the world in
the shipment of lumber, and on ac
count of being situated near the great
uncut forests, it will probably lead in
lumber production for many years to
