WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. (Special. )-Thn
bureau of the census has Just published
bulletin 61. which contains the reports on
the Industries of canning and preserving,
rice denning- and polishing, and manufac
turing beet sugnr. These reports form
P.rt of the census of manufactures for
ISffi and cover the stntlstlcs of these In
dustries for the calendar year 1904.
The Industry of canning- and preserving,
as defined by the bureau Of the census,
embraces all establishments which are en
gaged primarily In canning or preserving
fruits, vegetables. Ash, oysters, clams and
shrimps. There were 2,708 such establish
ments In 1!H. Their total capital was $70,
0S2.076. and they employed 63,862 persons,
paid out n7.4M.3r In wages, consumed ma
terials costing T70.flM.S86 and manufactured
products to the value of $108,505,471. In
all of these Items, except that of the num
ber of persons employed, the Industry
shows a marked Increase since the census
of 19"0. The decrease In the number of
persons employed waa slight and was due
to the Increased use of the contract system,
under which laborer are riot reported as
Can ulna- Prodnrta.
In the total production for the United
States, the largest Item was canned vege
tables, the value of which was 4fi,22,l,
or 41 7 per cent of the total. Canned and
dried fruits come next with a value of
$27,308, 828. The value of flsh was $25,547,075,
of which canned flsh constituted $16.9S3.779;
smoked flsh, $2,362,740, and salted flsh,
$6,200,556. The value of oysters, canned,
was $3,799 418.
The leading state In the totnl value of
canned products was California, for which
$24.82t,128.waa reported, most of It for fruit,
canned or dried. New Tork was second to
California, reporting products vMucd at
$12,910,755. This state held second place, not
because It excelled In the production of any
particular class of goods, but because It
canned large quantities of nearly all
classes. Maryland was third with products
valued at $12,705,611 and was the leading
state In the canning of vegetables. The
value of Its products of this class was
The establishments In the United States
reporting this Industry are subdivided Into
three groups, according as their principal
product Is canned or preserved fruits and
vegetables, canned or preserved flsh, or

Fruit. anJ Vegetable..
The canning and preserving of fruits and
vegetablea la by far the moet important
branch of the canning Industry. The 2,261
establishments engaged in It used $47,629,497,
or 68 por cent of the capital, and employed
39,988, or 79.6 per cent of the wage earners.
The Ave leading states, ranked according
to the value of nil products, were Califor
nia, Maryland, New York, Indiana and
In the production of canned and dried
fruits California led with a product valued
at .about $21,000,000.
Maryland, with a product valued at about
$5,000,000, was the leading state In the can
ning of tomatoes. The total value of to
matoes canned In the country was $13.8S5,169.
In the canlnng of corn the leading state
In value of products was Iowa, which re
ported $2,616,178. Illinois, New York and
Maryland were next In the order named,
but In quantity the product of Maryland
exceeded that of New York. The total value
of the corn canned In the country was
In the canning of peaa New York was
first with a product valued at $2,678,291; Wis
consin waa second and Maryland third. Por
the country as a whole the value of the
pea. canned waa $7,928,791.
The branch of the Industry next In Im
portance was the canning and preserving
of flsh, In which 373, or 13.S per cent of the
total number of establlsments, were en
gaged. They used $19,853,016, or 28.3 per cent
of the total 'capital, and employed 6,959, or
13.9 per cent of the wage-earners.
Alaska led "In the production of canned
and preserved flsh. It held that position
because of it. salmon canneries, the value
of the salmon canned In that territory
being $7,618,579. Washington, which was
second in salmon canning, reported products
valued at $2,431,605, or less than one-third
the amount reported by Alaska. The total
value of the salmon canned In the United
States waa $11,843,521.

times the combined otuput of all other
The canning and preserving of oyster,
was the least Important of the three
branches of the Industry. Only fluty-nine,
or 2.6 per cent, of the total number of cs
'ablUhments were engaged In It ami they
used only $2,599,563, or 3.7 per cent of the
total capital, and employed only 3,291. or
i.5 per cent, of the wage-earners. Ranked
according to the value of oysters canned,

The manufacture of sugar from beets Is
a comparatively new Industry In the
United States, but It has progressed at a
rapid rate. Statistics for this Industry
were reported for the first time at Iho
census of 1S80. Between that year and
19o5 the number of . establishments In
creased from four to fifty-one; the capltat,
from $366,000 to $Ti6,923145; the number of
wage earners, from 350 to 3.963; the wages,
from $62,271 to $2,4S6,702; the cosf of ma
terlals used, from $186,128 to $14,46.876, and
the value of products, from $282,572 to $24,
SP3.794. The greater part of this Increase has
taken place since 1900, when the number
of establishments was thirty, the capital
$20,141,719, the cost of materials $4.SWI,7!,
and the output $7,323,857. In that year
there were 1,970 wage earners employed In
the sugar factories, receiving $1,092,207 In
wages. . Thus In the five years between 19)
and 1906 the total amount paid out for Hie
material, used In the beet sugar Industry
Increased threefold, and the total value
ef the products more than threefold, while
the average number of wage earners
doubled and the total amount paid in w:ig-;s
more than doubled.
The 2,175.417' tons of beets used In the
manufacture of beet sugar were grown on
240,757 acres and cost $11,345,785. Mote than
four-fifths of these beets were grown by
contract by Independent farmers, for ther?
Is a tendency among the factories to con
tract for as much of the crop as possible
rather than to have a large acreage of
beets grown directly by the factory.
The production of granulated sugar, which
was the prlncipul product, amounted to
496,618,314 pounds, valued at "$23,493,373.
Other products of Importance were 11,223,607
pounds, of raw sugar, valued at $431,229;
9,609,643 gallons of molasses, valued at
$221,057, and beet pulp valued at $202,070.
The utilization of by-products Is one of
the leading factor. In the contest between
the use of cane and beets In the manu
facture of sugar and it la probable that in
the near future the by-product, will con
stitute one of the principal sources of ln
como for a beet sugar factory.
In many European countries molasses
and beet sugar are used extensively for
cattle food and this use Is being developed
to a limited extent In this country.
Quantities of beet Juice are used In the
manufacture of alcohol, and lime cake,
which la another by-products .of the beet
sugar Industry; Is being employed for fer

the shah today shows that he Iihs made a
further slight Improvement, but he Is still
very weak. At 4 o'clock this afternoon his
majesty was sleeping.
LONDON, Dec. 8. A dispatch received
here this morning from Paris announced
that It was reported there that the shah
of Persia waa dead. Neither the Persian
legation nor the Persian bank here have
received anything confirmatory of the
rumor. The British Foreign otllce also dis
credit, the report.
Malady I. Fatal.
BERLIN, Dec. 8. Although the German
Foreign office does not believe the shah
of Persia Is . so . near . death as r ported
from Terehan, it ts well understood that
hi. passing cannot long be dcluyed, as his
maladies are In their final stages.
Germany Is popularly supposed. In Great
Britain and Franco especially, to Le pur
suing mysterious political objects with the
ultimate design of acquiring territorial ad
vantage, in Persia. The German volley,
the Associated Pres. Is Informed, is simply
equal trade privileges in Persia for all
nations. The principle of the German pol
icy In Persia has been clearly explblned
to the foreign offices of Great Britain and
Russia and misunderstandings such a.
those that made the Moroccan question seri
ous are not likely to arise. The offer of
the banking concession by the shah waa
voluntary and was part of his plan to
borrow money from Germany. He had
already borrowed through the British
owned "Imperial Bank of Persia" and the
Russian owned Banque d'Escompte.
German Trader. Active.
The activity and enterprise of the Ger
man traders led the shah', adviser, to
suggest the establishment of a German
bank in Persia. The German Foreign office
considered that Germany already pos
sessed the right to form such a bank
under the most favored nation clause of
the treaty between Persia and Oermany,
and therefore the shah's offer aroused no
particular feeling of gratitude. The For
eign office eventually turned over the con
cession to a group of Berlm bankers, but
they have not done anything' with It as
yet except to agree to send representa
tives to Persia some time this winter to
see if any money can be made out of the
concession. Rusela Is more the rival of
Germany for the trade in Persia than is
Great Britain, possessing as It does a
treaty under which the customs dues on
overland Imports are lower than those
Imposed on seaborne Imports, and both
Great Britain and Germany have a com
munity of Interests in obtaining an equali
zation of the seaport and land frontier
