GREATEST HARVEST IN HISTORY
rV'eitrf) YaY Wai Record SrtakarMn
Waabjngton, tfoy.28. "Wealth pro
duction on the farms o( the United
States in 1005 reacbod the highest
amount ever auaincu in tins or any
other country $6,415,000,000."
In the first annual report of bis tbjrd
term secretary oi Agrlculturo Wilson
preflents an array of figures and a state
ment representing products and proflta
of tbo farmers of this country, which
lie aumita "u reams oi wealth produc
Hon could hardly equal."
Four cropa make now blab records as
to value corn, bay, wheat and rice
although In amount of production tbo
corn ia the only one that exceeds pro
vlous yields. In every crop tbo gen
eral level of production was high and
that of prices still higher. Beaido the
enormous yield of wealth tbo secretary
estimates that tbo farms of the country
haVo increased In valuo during tbo past
uvo years to a present aggregate of $0,
"Evory sunset during the past flvo
years," ho says, "baa, registered , an in
crease of $3,400,000 in tbo value of the
farms of this country."
Analyzing the principal crops for the
year, tbo secretary says that corn
react) od its highest production at 2,
708,000,000 bushols, a gain of 42,000,
000 over tbo next highest year, 1800;
liny la second in order of valuo, al
though cotton hold second place during
tho two preceding years. The bay crop
this year ia valued at $00,000,000.
Cotton comcfl third, with a valuation
of $575,000,000; wheat, $625,000,000;
oats, $282,000,000; potatoes, $138,
000,000; barley, $68,000,000; tobacco,
$12,000,000; augar, cano and sugar
beets, $50,000,000; rice, $13,000,
000; dairy products, $50,000,000, an
increase of $54,000,000, over last year.
PLENTY OF MONEY.
Secretary of Interior Has Not Bnen
Furnished Proper Figures.
Washington, Nov. 28.- When tho
secretary of the Interior and tho Recla
mation service reach an understanding
an to the extent and condition of the
national reclamation fund, it ia expect
ed that a number of new irrigation pro
jecta, including projects in Eastern
Oregon and Eastern Washington, will
bo approved and placed under contract.
But until there is a complete under
standing, tho present chaotic condition
must continue, and inactivity will bo
the rule, eavo on projects that aro act
ually under contract.
Tho great misunderstanding that now
prevails ia as to tbo amount of money
available for use, and tho restrictions
under which that money may bo ex
pended. Tho Reclamation aervice hab
ita own sot of figures, but thoso flgurei
do not coincide with tbo figures which
kavo been furnished Secretary Hitch
cock by the men in hla own department
upon whom ho relics. Tho secretary,
confronted with very different financial
statements, from sources which ought
to agreo, haa concluded that neither ia
right, yet ho ia unable to Oguro out for
himself just how much money he has
to spend, and how much ho baa spent
in tho 3)4 yeara tho reclamation law
baa boon in forco.

CONCENTRATION OF ATTENTION
President Will Not Give Senate Any
Excuse to Avoid Action by De
bating In the Air.
Washington, Nov. 28. For varioua
roasona President Roosovolt will not
urgo congress at tho approaching ses
sion to take up the question of tariff
rovlaion. He believes tho railroad rate
question Ib the most vital issue which
confronts the people of tho United
States today, and ho is thorefore un
willing to bring to tho front any other
problem whoso discussion would tend
to postpono, if not defeat, legislation
on that subject. Ho proceeds on tho
theory that tho worst evil should be
first cured. Alter four yeara' experi
onco In tho white house, and with i
comprehensive knowledge of the metb
ous resorted to by congress to defeat
legislation which is distasteful, the
president is fully aware that ho would
materially decrease tho chances of got
ting rato legislation if he should make
tariff revision an Ibbuo of equal import
anco with the regulation of freight
rates, lie is awaro that the senate
would quickly seize upon tbia opportu
nity anu concontrato ita attention on
tariff bill, not so much with any Idea
of modifying tho Dlngley tariff aa to
distract attention and sidetrack the
rato bill beforo It reached a critical
There is other legislation which the
president hopes to have passed besides

mo rauroau rate Dili, out he is more
anxious about that measure than any
other, and he will concentrate his
efforts to securo such a law as will, in
his judgment, effectively check diecrim
inations of all sorts. He wants a law
which will apply the "square deal"
rule to railroad business, and if bis in
fluence, backed by public opinion, can
bring it about, such a law will be writ
ten on the statute books before the first
session of the Fifty-ninth congress ad

one of the delegates made the following
"Whatever wo have had to say will

vote on a aubject to which for threo
months wo bad given the closest atten

cause some parties are not contented
with It, is a great absurdity."
Leave Isle of Pines to Cuba.
Washington, Nov. 28. Tho Cuban
government will be permitted to settle
to its own satisfaction tho existing
trouble on tho Isle of Pines. The
State department has so announced. Of
course, if American citizenB were to bo
unduly persecuted or maltreated be
caueo of any exercise by them o their
right of freedom of speech or aasembly,
this government will take steps to se
cure for them justice. But if those
Americans on the islands place them
solves outside tho pale of the law by
refusing to recognize tho authority of
the Cuban government, they will bare

AMEND IMMIGRATION LAWS.
Sargent's Plan for Keeping Out All
Washington. Nov. 27. Radical
changes in tho immigration lawa will
be made next year, if the suggestions
of Commissioner General Sargent, are
put into cusct. Mr. Sargent ia anxioua
to have limits placed on the number
of immigrants, and that persons who
aro either too young or too old to sup
port themselves should not be per
mitted to disembark. This would not
however, apply to those who can furn
lab guarantees that they are on theii
way to relatives.
Mr. sargent believes that by an ar
rangement with foreign governments
the useless traflic of deportation of lm
migrants unfit to land here could be
b topped, lielore an Immigrant ia per
mitted to take passage for America, he
should undergo an examination at the
point of embarkation.
HITCHCOCK TO RESIGN.
Rumor That Western Congressmen
Have Got His Scalp.
Washington, Nov. 27. The fact
leaked out tonight from a xesponsible
source that at a recent cabinet meeting
Ethan Allen Hitchcock, secretary of
the Interior, expressed a desire to ten
der his resignation July 1 next. The
same authority announces that Vespa
sian Warner, of Illinois, now commis-
aioner of pensions, ia to succeed him.
It is said the proposed change in tho
cabinet haa been brought about by
members of congress from western
states, who charge that Mr. Hitchcock,
in operations against land grabber!,
has permitted his personal feelings to
enter into tho prosecutions. While
thia charge had been often repeated, it
ia said that the retirement of Mr.
Hitchcock will be wholly due to the
desire of the president to surround
himself with younger men.
MILLION WOMEN FIGHT SVIOOT.
Characterize Htm as a Man Sanction

Philadelphia, Nov. 27. A meeting
of the executive committee of the Na
tional League of Women's organiza
tions, lormed two yeara ago to oppose
tho continuance in tho United States
senate oi Senator Reed Smoot, of Utah,
was held here today. Women from all
sections of the country were present.
It was announced that a petition would
be presented to the senate asking for
the exclusion of Mr. Smoot on the
ground that "he iB a member of a
hoirarchy whose president and a major
ity of the members pratctice and teach
polygamy." The memorial will state
that "Mr. Smoot has never raised bis
voice against these doctrines, and the
Mormon hierarchy has broken ita cov
enants which it gave to the United
States when statehood was granted."

The Story of In-Door Shb.
Once on a time, In far Japan,
There Hred a busy little man,
So merry nnd so full of fun
That people called him In-door Sun.
Now In-door Sun made mirrors fine,
Like those in your house and In mine,
And In these looking-glasses bright
His own face saw from morn till night
It made him feel so very sad
To see his face look cross and bad,
That he began to take great care
To keep a sweet s&ile always there.
And soon be found that those he knew,
All seemed to liko him better, too;
For, like the mirrors, every one
Began to smile on In-door Sun!
Now try thU Just one day and scb
How bright and smiling you can be;
You'll find both happiness and fun
In playing you're an "In-door sunt"
A Contlr Skate.
Roller skating Is older than most
folk Imagine. Joseph Merlin, a Bel
gian, born In 1735, a clever, inventive
fellow, went to London In 1700 and
exhibited his novelties at a museum In
Spring Gardens, and afterward in
Prince's street, Hanover Square. Hav
ing made a pair of skates to run on
skin, were on her hands. These fitted!
perfectly and were ornamonted with
strips of skin from some animal per
haps the seal. To completo this elab
orate outfit this Eskimo belle carried
in her hand not a bouquet but a
long eagle feather. In fact she 'carried
two, one in each hand, which she
waved as she danced. No doubt this)
young lady mode a charming picture.
At least the young gallants of her set
thought she did.
LACK OF MEN, NOT WORK.
Revelation of the Real Problem of
Leroy Scott contributes to World's
Work the result of a first-hand In
vestigation of the unemployed In the
United States. He makes some star
tling revelations andlncldentally scat
ters the tissue of sentimentality that
has hung about tuo "poor man looking
for a Job." He declares that tho real
problem is not to find work for men,
but men for work. Ninety per cent
of the men out of work don't want
work. Mr. Scott says:
"In largo cities the men who stand
In bread lines, who patronize free

however, and that was how to guide
himself and to stop quickly, and the
result was that before the performance
had lasted very long he dashed Into an
Immense mirror valued at $2,500,
smashed his fiddle to bits, and serious
ly injured himself. That appears to
have dampened the spirit of Inventors,
for we hear nothing of other wheel
skates for nearly half a century.
A True Incident.
A French family has recently had
Its fortunes restored In a way to sug
gest story telling. They were wretch
edly poor, selling ono possession after
another In order to live. One day the
mother, In moving au old desk of her
great-grandfather, came upon an old
book, between the pages of which was
a stamp of the Island of Maurice of
A traveler stopping to rest in the
cottage one day saw this stamp, which
a boy was sticking to a home-made en
velope; playing "postofflce" with a lit
tle friend. This traveler (a man of
wealth and a collector of curios) saw
that It was very rare. In truth, thero
wero but two others In existence, one
belonging to the King of England and
one to tho Czar of Russia, ne told the
family of their treasure, and It waa
through his interest and exertions that
tho stamp was subsequently sold for
An EaUttuo's Dreai.
When an Eskimo young lady goes to
a ball sho Is a gorgeous sight to gaze
upon. You did not know that they
had dances In her country? Well, they
do, and a traveler reports Just how a
belle was dressed on such an occasion.
Her dress was mado of the Intes
tines of a seal, split nnd sewed togeth
er. This makes a transparent gar
ment, and the girl trimmed it with
elaborate embroidery of colored
worsteds and fringed it with strings of
beads. Her trousers wero whlto and
made of Siberian reindeer skin, em
broidered with strips of wolf skin. Her
hair was braided on each side with
strips of wolf skin and Btrips of beads.
Heavy necklaces and pendants of
beads and teeth of animals hung
around her neck and over her should

In police stations, are properly re
garded as unfortunates who have
failed to find work. The Charity Or
ganisation Soslety and the Association
for Improving the condition of th
Poor, both of New York, recently had
cards printed addressed to unemployed
men, offering work and financial and
medical aid. During March and April
28,000 of these cards were distributed
to men in bread lines, missions and
lodging bouses. Three hundred and
five responded a little more than 1
per cent It would aeem that self-respecting
men, eager to work, would
seize at such chance. At the two
lodging bouses, of the Philadelphia
Society for Organlzlnz Charity, the of
ficers clip from the morning papers
and post on a bulletin board the ad
vertisements asking for male help, so
that the men can read them when
discharged at G a. m. As a rule no
more than two or three men from a
crowd of 100 or 150 glance at the ad
vertisements. "Among unorganized workers men
are frequently upemployed through a
desire to choose their Job. I sat a
large part of one day listening to the
talk between clerk and applicants.
Job after Job was refused because the
applicants were not pleased with the
work or the wages. A typical case was
that of a young fellow who was of
fered a good opening In an office at
$12 a wook; he refused because ho
wanted to start at $15. On the pre
vious day tills agency had found a Job
for a man whose family was being sup
ported by a charity society. The man
went to his new work in the morning:
in the afternoon he wns back at tho
agency. 'They only wanted to pay mo
?1,75," .ho complained. 'I won't work
for less than $2 for anybody.' "
