(From a Staff Correspondent)
WASHINGTON. Aug. 14. Speclal.)-The
commerce of the Philippine Islands con
tinues to Increase, notwithstanding the ad
verse agricultural conditions that have pre
vailed during the past year. This fact is
demonstrated from a summarisation of the
trade figures for ten months ending April
JO, 19C3, the official returns for which period
have been received and published In the
monthly bulletin Issued by the Insular
bureau of the War department.
In the month of April, 1903. the total
value of Imports and exports of merchan
dise was S6.T23.778, as against I3.S43.673 In
1902 and $3,857,363 In 1901. For ten months
ending April SO, 1903, the trade amounted
to 353.703.263. while for the corresponding
period of 19C2 the amount was J46.146.9S1 and
in 1901 It was $44,199,568.
The great bulk of this gain has been due
to an increase In exports, shipments from
the Islands for the month of April, 1903,
approximating nearly (4,090,000, made up for
the most part of heavy cargoes of hemp,
In fact the largest monthly output since
American occupation. If not In the history
of the archipelago, and from present Indi
cations the figures for the fiscal year end
ing June 30, 1903, will show a balance of
trade In favor of the Islands, a position
they have not occupied for the last seven
years, or from the date of the Insurrection
against Spain in 1896. Prior to the latter
year, however, and for a period extending
as far back as 1882, the shipment of Philip
pine products had Invariably been greater
than the value of foreign purchase. This
fact Is worthy of careful analysis when It
Is considered that the volume of trade at
the present time Is larger than In any
previous year, regardless of the Interrup
tion to business by reason of quarantine
restrictions as a result of cholera, heavy
losses owing to the destruction of crop by
locusts and an almost total annihilation of
farm cattle due to the ravages of rinder
pest, all of which naturally had a depress
ing effect, and much credit Is due for the
enterprise displayed In meeting these ob
stacle without actual loss In the aggregate
amount of business transacted.
Distribution of Exports.
The distribution of exports during the last
three years, according to the principal agri
cultural products. Is shown as follows, the
exports being to all countries:
19)1. 1902. 1903.
Hemn C1.4A1.J61 (12.698,356 (17.BH6.220
Bugar 1.967.324 2.U68.645 2.942.014

Other articles. 1.325,355 1.623,815 Wa.s45
Totals (W.084,169 (19.367.482 (26.699.872
The most noticeable Increase In value Is
found under hemp and copra, the trade In
both of these articles having made excep
tionally large gains during the last year.
Of the hemp produced and credited to ex
portation In 1903 the United State easily
rank as the principal buyer, receiving
nearly (10,000,000 worth, or 57 per centum of
the total as i; gainst IS per . centum of the
shipments In 1001. . . .
Although more than two-thirds of .the
Philippine export consist of hemp, It may
prove of Interest to note the comparative
value of United Stat as trade In. the leading
commodities aa enumerated above;
Exported to , Ten Months,

Imparts Into Islands.
With regard to Imports Into the Islands,
while their value for the ten months of
1903 does not show so large a gain as might
have been expected under more favorable
conditions, nevertheless an average monthly
trade of nearly (2,750,000 has been main
tained, this being somewhat in excess of
the showing for the year previous. The
importation of rice is still heavy and will
In all probability continue so for some time,
though it is hoped that the home produc
tion, which is being stimulated, will tend
to greatly reduce the purchases from
abroad. Aside from rice imports, which
reached nearly (7,500,000 worth in 1903, the
United States is supplying over one-sixth
of the trade In other commodities, steady
Increase being made in such lines as wheat
flour, practically the total Importation com
ing from this country, canned salmon, meat
products. Illuminating oils, machinery of
different kinds, paper, cotton goods, and
leather manufactures, principally boots and
shoes, the figures showing a constant end
growing demand for the American make of
MILITARY TOURNEY OPENS
Millard Rifles Begin Exhibition at
Krtf Park with Credit,
The Millard Rifles began the week's ma
neuvers In tb military tournament at
Krug park last night with company ma
neuvers. A large assemblage cheered the
company as it marched onto the parade
ground Just south of the roller coaster.
Prilling in close order, they followed
through the manual of arms, company
marchings and platoon drill with remark
able precision. Then they opened out ana
drilled by squads in extended order, giving
especial attention to the firings.
The most Interesting feature for the
spectators wss held until the last. The
company spread out as skirmishers and
made a feint attack. First one wing and
then the other would rush forward, kneel
and fire and go on again until they had
reached a point from whence to charge.
Then the bayonets flashed, a scattering
and crackling line of fire swept from their
rifles and they rushed on the enemy with
a cheer and drove them to the rear.
Afterward a picked squad of the Rifles
gave an exhibition drill In the silent manual
and in bayonet exercises. To finish with
there was a "spell down" of the company.
A program similar to .the one of last night
will be given tonight and tomorrow night
the other local companies and members of
other Nebraska companies and the Twent
second Infantry will Join In the tournament.

The product in 1890 was less by nearly

METEORITE FALLS IN CHICAGO

Metal Drop ia an
People living on the north side were
awakened at 1:30 o'clock yesterday morn
ing by a meteorite, which fell in an alley
In the rear of 36 Whiting street. Flames
of Intolerable Intensity and sulphurous
fumes Issued from the mass of metallic
substance for about twenty minutes, whllo
the neighborhood resounded with the ex
cited shout of the beholders.
James Frost and his wife were first
awakened by the shrill, hissing sound and
the peculiar Illumination, as It was near
est their back porch that the cxtra-terres-trail
visitor came. Frost described It In
"The light was of a green color for five
or ten seconds, and came from two spot
on the cbject. Then it went out. and
smoke that had a smell like sulphur
poured forth for about the same length
of time, giving way . to a reddish light
Then there was more smoke, followed by
a white light. . Imagine the strongest white
glare you ever saw, and then think of It
magnified ten time. It was so strong
that I had to turn my head, although I
was behind a screen -door, and I saw
neighbors holding papers and cloths be
fore their eyes for shields."
No one In the neighborhood had the
emerity to approach the meteorite until
daylight. Then Frost took li to his home.
It weight was about seventy-five pounds,
and its dimensions are about eight by
eighteen Inches. It is porous In parts, but
soma sections look like slag, while mil
others have the appearance of iron and
copper. There are numerous small cavl
tiea, and the whole rubstance Is not unlike
what may be found In lava beds about the
craters of volcanoes.
Minute pieces from the meteorite were
shown Weather Cbserver Wall last night.
He said that although it fell in a thunder
storm which he had predicted, he would
not pass a,n opinion on It. Mr. Frost will
show the rubstance to an astronomer or
a geologist today.-Chlcago Record-Herald.

At first the weather was fine, and they
enjoyed their ride by day and their stops
in the woods at night. As they sat around
their campflre they built many air castles.
Some were large and handsome. Some
were more humble. Clark speculated on
how he would lift the mortgage from his
father's farm. But when they crossed
Macon county It was raining. The water
came down In torrents. Then It turned to
sleet and snow. Th young men became
discouraged. One night they camped
Old Blooming-ton. Their air castlei had
faded and they resolved that next momlne
they would turn back, The next morning,
however, they found to their astonishment
that somebody In the night had painted on
one side of the cover of their wagon theae
Inspiring words in big letters: "Success to
these brave young men." These "brave
young men" looked at each other sheep

county with these words on their wagon
"It was my day to drive," says Mr.
Clark. " "Which way Is It, boys?- I asked.
All looked west, but said nothing. I led the
oxen around and headed them toward the
