OF A CENTURY
The growth of the foreign commerce
of the United States from 1893 to 1903
presents some Interesting facts. The
J department of commerce and labor,
through its bureau of statistics pre-
sents a table showing the imports and
exports by graud divisions in each
calendar year from 1893 to 1903, thus
bringlnlg the figures down 10 the very
latest date postbly. This table shows
that the exports from the I'nlted States
' to Kurope have grown during the pe-
riod named from $080,000.000, speak-
ing in round terms, to $1,087,000,000 or
60 per cent; those to North America
from $125,000,000 to $227,000,000, or
81 per cent; to South America, from
$34.00.000 to $40,000,000, or 36 per cent;
to Asia and Oeenala from $31,000,000
to $92,000,000, or 107 per cent; and to
Africa from practically $5,000,000 to
$31,000.00u or 489 per cent; while the
growth in total exports has been from
$87ii.000.000 in 1893 to $1,484,000,000
in 1903, or 09 per cent.
It Is proper to add that the figures
of exports lo Asia and Occnula are
slightly misleading In view of the fact
that shipments from the United States
to Hawaii, which in 893 were class-
ed as exports, are no so included at the
present time, because of the fact that
Hawaii Is now a customs district of
the I'ntted States and the shipments
to Hawaii ore no longer included in
the table of exports to foreign coun-
tries If the siopments to Hawaii In
1903 were Included the total exports
from the United States to Asia and
Oeenala would be $104,000,000 In 1903
istead of $92,000,000. thus making the
real percentage of Increase to Asia
and Oceania. 286 per tent.
On the Import side, Imports Into
the United Hiates t'rom Kurope show a
growth front $392,000,000 in 1893 to
$62H.U0O,000 In 1903, or 35 per cent;
from North America from $171,000,000
to $182,000,000, or 7 per cent, from
South America, from $103,000,000 to
$113,000,000. or 9 per cent; from Asia
and Oceania from $102,000,000 to $181,-
OcO.U.O, or 58 per cent, and from Africa
from $4,000,000 to 911,066.004 or 175 per
cent; while the total Imports show a
growth from $778,000,000 in 1893 to
$995,000,000 In . 1903, or 28 per cent or
In a word it may be said that our
exports to Kurope have Increased about
80 per cent from 1893 to 1903; those to
North America 81 per cent; to South
America 83 per cent; to Asia and
Oeenala. 97 per cent and to Africa 434
per cent; while the percentage of gain
In total exports is 89 per cent. In im-
ports the percentage of growth has
been from Europe' 35 per cent; from
North America 7 per cent; from South
America, 9 per cent; from Asia and
Oceania 58 per cent, and from Africa
76 per cent; while In the total imports
the percentage of Increase is 28 per
Among tip* most strongly marked
Instances off growth In our commerce
and especlaly In the exports, is that
of Canada. In 1893 the total exports
to the Dominion of Canada amounted to
$57,121,178. in 1898. at the middle of
the period they were $90,388,085, In
1903 they were $131,452,582. This
makes the percentage of increase In
our exports to Canada 131 per cent.
In imports front Cnnada. the growth
was from $34,492,332 In 1893 to $53.-
291.752 in 1903, an increase of 27 per
cent. To Mexico the growth In our
exports was from $16,551,255 in 1893
to $43,510,337 in 1903, an iucrease of
163 per cent. In imports the growth
was from $32,372,998 in 1893 to $41,-
291,752 in 1903, an increase of 27 per
THE PRESS AGENT A
FACTOR IN SUCCESS
A good press agent is essential to
the succes of any enterprise that must
ereate a demand for its particular
product or line of edification. This
proposition is well known to the peo-
ple who are preparing the St. Louis
world's fair They have the best de-
partment of publicity that has ever
flooded the newspaper offices with tons
of literature calculated to And free
space and induce people to set aside
a fund for a visit to the world's fair.
Some of the stories are so good that
they escape the waste basket upon
their merits as literary productions.
But the young men who write stories
for circulation are not all of the pub-
licity department of the fair. Bach
man in an official position there is a
boomer for the show. Frederick J.
Skiff, head of the exhibits division of
tbe St. Louis fair, has recently for-
mulated a definition of the term. He
has told what a world's fair really is.
He says the • universal exposition is
an encyclopedia of society." and then
"A modern universal ex|K>sition . is
a collection of the wisdom and the
achievements of the worid for the in-
spection of the world—for the study
of its experts, and by which they makv*
comparisons and deductions and de-
velop plans for future improvement
and progress. Such a universal expo-
sition might well be called an ency-
clopedia of society, and it contains in
highly specialised array, society's
l ords and works. It constitutes a cias-
slfied, compact. Indexed compendium
(available for ready reference) of the
achievements and ideas of acociety in
all phases of Its activity, exteending
to the most material as well as the
most refined. It offers illustrations
covering the full field of social per-
formance. from the production of the
shoes on our feet and the pavement be-
neath them to a presentation of the
rarest and most delicate creations of
the brains and hands of men in what
are classified as the fine arts of civ-
And it Is seen at a glance that no
school teacher will fall to attend the
fair. Everybody who looks with fav-
or upon education will be there as a
result of the definition and glittering
promises held out by Mr. Skiff. Then
some other official of the exposition
will give out a statement which will
show that no person with religion can
afford to remain away.
Then the sporting editor of the show
will make It clear that no man who
is Interested In athletics or cards can
ever look the world in the face If he

limited capacity, versatility and abil-
ity to convince.
ANOTHER WIFiRD PLAN
So vague and rash have been most
of the schemes for the colonization of
American negroes in other parts of the
world that at each new proposal of the
kind we are apt to laught as at some
chimerical folly. Very different from
the common run of such schemes Is,
however, the plan on Leigh Hunt, an
lowan who has a reputation for suc-
cess in some large enterprises In the
far east. Mr. Hunt would like to trans-
port American negroes to the Sudan,
there to grow cotton to compete with
American cotton In European markets.
To begin with, there is no question
about the market for Sudan cotton, if
it can be raised. France, Germany and
England, all have societies engaged in
costly experiments to find sources of
cotton supply wmch will make them
independent of the United States. All
would welcome success in any part of
Africa. The Sudan cotton Is of high
grade, superior even to Egyptian. It Is
said. The Suakim-Ilerber railroad will
soon provide transportation, and then
all that will be needed will be the la-
What will the American negro say
to his part of the scheme, asks the
Chicago Record-Herald. Well, Mr.
Hunt does not propose to ask the ne-
gro race for Its Judgment. He wants
to begin by getting a small colony of
Intelligent black men started. Then
hf trusts to their success and the fame
of it to attract others o ftheir race by
the thousands, just as European immi-
gration is attracted to this country.
The scheme may therefore have, con-
ceivably. a large measure of success.
There Is one thing about It, however,
that is if it did succeed it would re-
sult In the emigration of not the
worst, but the best, specimens of col-
ored workers in the smith. Conse-
quently. so lar as It had any effect
on the race problem In this country.
It would he harmful and not beneficial.
What effect the plan would have on
the negro emigrants themselves is an-
other problem. Mr. Hunt sees them
transformed Into a sort of Sudanese
aristocracy, stimulating the easy-going
natives to higher energy, but always
keeping well In advance themselves. It
is not hard to picture, however, instead
of an evolution, a retrogression, of
the negroes under the hot sun of trop
leal Africa. "Contentment with the
rain crop" might easily win a victory
over the ambition for "nothing less
than two or three crops a year."

When the measure for national aid to
th-- several states In the construction of
good roada comes before congress for llnal
action, one section of It. at least, should
be adopted without debate or delay, This
measure, known hi the lirownlow bill,
contemplates the appropriation of $8 000, -
000 per annum for three years for the
building of gni«] roads, this sum to be
equitably distributed among the states.
It also provides for the establishment of
a bureau of public road In the depart-
ment of agriculture, which bureau shall
have general charge of a system of na-
tolnal, state, and locul co-operation tor
the permanent Improvement of public
highways. It may prove to be very dif-
ficult to secure at the present session
of congress the appropriation among the
stateg for road building purposes, but
here Is one thing that can be done and
hould be done Immediately, and that Is
he creation of the good roads bureau,
vith a small appropriation for Its maln-
enance. It will require a year's work
at least to get such a bureau in shape
service and to lay out the work actu-
ally to be undertaken. By the time that
preliminary preparation Is accomplished
•ngress and the country will be ready-
to provide the money needed to put the
plans Into practical operation.
A Failure is He?
Ives lock World.
During the year 190J the American
farmers produced 2,823.648,312 bushels of
. 987.842(712 bushels of wheat, and
670.063.00X bushels of rye; nlso 821.823.-
63 pounds of tobacco, valued at f.r>7,56:i.-
510. In 1903 they raised 10,768,326 bales
nf cotton and marketed 25.245.000 hogs.
The annual aggregate value of th« pro-
duct of dairy cows In this country now
is clear that the American tiller of
the soil Is not so much of a failure as a
'farmer" after all.
Dr. Webber, who Is director <>f the lab-
oratory of plant breeding in the depart-
ment of agriculture at Washington, re-
cently declared In an nddreas before the
faculty of sciences of the Unlveralt yof
Chicago that Americana are "miserable
farmers" and that as a result of their
Ignorance they will have to "hustle in
•r that the United States may keep
Its place among the nations."
If Dr. Webber hail said that most Am-
icans are not scientific agriculturists
w would dissent from his opinion. But
hen fe come to farmers—men who cul-
vate the soil as a business to make the
ost money out of It—it will have to he

family. Three months after the marriage
his wife deserted him and returned to her
father's home. All at once tho friends of
Houston in Tennessee were shocked to
learn that the governor had resigned his
office. Indeed, we may better say that
Houston simply walked out of tho gover-
nor's office, left the interests of the com-
monwealth to take care of themselves as
best they might, placed his own personal
feelings above all other considerations,
abandoned his family and his friends, cast
away his future, and either like a weak-
