Washington, Feb. 21. Imports of
unmanufactured sjlk into the United
States made their highest rocord in
tho calendar year Just ended, their to
tal value having been $75,500,000,
against $73,000,000 In 1907, tho pre
vious high value record, while tho
quantity Imported In 1909 exceeded

Figures recently prcpnred by tho
bureau of statistics of tho department
of commorco and labor Indlcato n re
markable growth In tho domestic silk
industry. In 1870 tho Importations of
raw silk amounted to but 738,381
pounds; in 1880, 2,500,000; In 1890,
4.500,000, and In 1000, about 8,500,000,

per annum, aro principally engaged Jn
supplying tho homo market, as their
oxportations hnvo never reached as
much ns $1,000,000 in any year.
President Has Changed His Legisla
tive Program.
Washington, Feb. 21. Tho an
nouncement from tho White House
that President Taft had by his own
motion cut down to four the number
of administration measures he would
demand at tho present session of con
gross Is rocelved by Republican lead
ers with unmixed feelings of relief.
Tho administration program was so
formidable that members warmly sup
porting the Taft policies hardly knew
where to begin.
A schedule Including only the bills
to amend the Interstate commerco
laws, of Injunctions, start Arizona and
Now Mexico on tho road to statehood
and validate tho withdrawals of public
lands for conservation purposes, Js re
garded us quite possible of attain
ment. Most of these measures, it Is
believed, can bo put through tho son
ato while the house is still wrestling
with appropriation bills.
When It wns reported at tho capllol
that the president would bo satisfied
with tho enactment of the four meas
ures named, steps were taken to bring
all of these matters out of committees
at the earliest possiblo dato. The
postal savings hank bill Is already be
fore tho senate and an agreement be
tween the supporters of conflicting
amendments Is assured. It Is regarded
as practically certain that the bill can
bo passed during tho coming week.
Tho ship subsidy bill will not bo
pressed on account of opposition.

Pageant In London.

opened formally by King Edward, who
was accompanied by Queen Alex
andra, und Is now fully organized and
ready for the work of tho session.
Tho state opening wns marked by all
tho pomp and pageantry associated
with these occasions since the ascen
sion of Edward VII.
In a momentous speech from tho
throne, his mnjesty outlined the plan
of the ministerial campaign against
tho house of lords, as follows:
"Recent experiences hns disclosed
serious difficulties, due to recurring
differences of strong opinion, between
tho two -branches of tho legislature.
Proposals will be laid before you with
all convenient speed, to define the ro
tations betwe-n the houses of parlia
ment so as to secure the undivided
authority of the house of commons
over finance and its predominance in
legislation. These measures, In tho
opinion of my advisers, should pro
ride that this house should be consti
tuted nnd empowered as to exercise
Impartially in regard to tho proposed
legislation the functions of Initiation,
revision and subject to proper safe
guards of delay."
The ceremony hnd no attraction all
Its own. Uppermost in the minds of
thousands who witnessed tho Bpectnclo
In streets nnd among occupants of
red clothed benches In the glided
chamber, was tho thought of the forth
coming fight, which threatens the very
existence of the heredltnry houso of
peers, and conjecture whether they
were spectators of acts preluding his
toric chnngos In centuries old Institu
tions of Great Britain.
