next Wednesday hlght will be largely at

rerd by Chairman Tom Allen of the
democratic ti fommltte are reliable. It
1 expected that mora than 1,000 people will
ha seated at the banquet tablet
and many more than that -wfll
listen to the speeches. The democratic
state committee meets the um day, but
with the exception of the location of the

cuaalon will be had over a primary to se

orglng the republicans: to hold a .'primary
to vota for president, but the Bryan
boosters are not In favor of going to the
trouble of holding a primary. The leaders

ia for tho Llncolnlte and that settles It.
ohm Interest, attaches to the coming
meeting of the democrats hecaiise not only
will the leaders get together on the na
tional Ctfatlon at Ma-meeting, but they
will also If poeslblc pick out their candl
latfof governor to be voted for at the
September primary. George W. Berge In
tends to make the race for the nomina
tion, and he registered a a democrat at
-the taat primary .In order to wipe out
any objection to him from old line demo
crats. The leaders of the party do not
wsnt Berge and they will attempt at the
meeting Wednesday to agree on a man
to contest with him for. the honor. All of
which Is vouched for by a democrat.
AatLBnrkett Leader Not flelerted.
Opponents of .Senator Buikett have not
yet agreed upon , a itian to content with
lilm for a place on the delegation to the
tteVlonal convention, though at thia time it
looks like Judge Allen Field will be the
man. Many or the opponents, believe Judge
Frost or W,, R. Rose would show up
stronger thsn Field,' but under the cir
cumstances it is believed Mr. Rose desires
to keep out of the fight, while Judge
Frost has just been elected district judge
and ha may not desire to again go before
tho' people so soon, as ho expect In the
future to ask for something higher. Vari
ous factions of the party here, however,
have held frequent conferences during the
last few days and the word that comes
. from .these conferences Is that an agree
ment will be reached in due time.
Just What Senator Burkett . Is . doing Is
not plain to the republicans here' If he Is
doing anything, but he has enough friends
In the county to keep him posted and It Is
not believed he Is Idle. The .county com
mittee hss not yef been. 'called to meet
and It Is not ' known 'wlielher the com
mittee will order a primary.

he aaya he Is for Mr. Hammond, because
of tho latter's devotion to the republican

According to Fiaare f
. (From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.-(Bpcclal. )-E-ports
of manufactures from the Vnlled
States aggregated more than $750,000,000,000
In value In the calendar year 1307. Eleven
months' figures supplied by the bureau of
statistic of;1he" Department of Commerce
and. Labor show exports of manufactures
aggregating over $700,000,000. a monthly
average during those eleven months of
$Bl.n0C.X, thua justifying- the' statement
that the December-figures' no. ,yH avail
able, win i bring! fbt towil (of the year
above Iho $7B0.O0O,Or,O.o60 lino. ' v'V
This means that the. ,export of manu
factures have kveragnd tnoro than "$2,000,000
a day during th entire year.' It was only
beginning wit!' the' year 1S39 that tho ex
ports of manufactures! reached as much
aa l.X'),fl0i per day, basing the statement
upon tho "average, nf the year, while prior
to 1SS0 they had never reached as much as
$50,000 a -day. . On ' taily three occasion
during the last year did the value of nibmi
fact urea exported fall below $(W.C00.000for
a single month. In the month , of June
they -exceeded $7O.OO0,0C. or as much for
that single month as those of the entire
year lfTTO and considerably more than In
any twelve-months period prior to that
year. The value of manufactures ex
ported In 1907 will approximate $770,000,000,
against rill.OCO.CCO in lfW. $149,000,000 In 1887,
$144.orO.VO in 1R77, $50,000,000 In 1M7 and
Hl.000,000 In 1867, the figures of these
earlier periods being those of fiscal years.
The share which manufactures form of
the total exports. In the eleven months
of 1907 for which statistics are available
Is 41.7 per cent, which slightly exceeds the
share which manufactures formed of the
exports In any earlier year.
Manufactures Imported In 1907 aggregated
In .value about $650,000,000, against approxi
mately $770,000,000 value of manufactures ex
ported, thus Indicating that the exporta
tion of manufactures now exceeds the im
portation of manufactures by about $120,
000,000 per annum. Prior to the fiscal year
1S97 manufactures imported always ex
ceeded In value, those exported. In 1?M0
manufactures Imported amounted to $307,
000,000 and those exported. $48,000,000; In 1870,
manufactures Imported were $229,000,000 and
those exported, $70,000,000; In 1880, Imports
of manufactures were $307,000,000. and ex
ports of manufactures $122,000,000; In 1890,
Imports were $348,003,000 and exports $179,
000,000; In '1896, Imports were $328,000,000 and
exports, $258,OO0,CCX). In 1897 . for the first
time exports of manufactures exceeded im
ports of manufactures, the figure for
that year being, Imports $306,000,000, exports
$311 ,000,000. From 1897 to 1807 manufactures
exported have In every fiscal year ex
ceeded In value those Imported, and in
1907 the exports of manufactures will, as
above Indicated, exceed the Imports of
manufactures by approximately $120,000,000.
The gain of approximately $o0.C00.000 In
value of manufactures exported during the
year occur in nearly all of the Important
article. The only manufacture showing
any material reduction In exports during
the year ts cotton cloths, which fell off
about $1,000,000 In value. Of this reduction,
about $14,000,000 occurred In the trade with
China, due largely to. the unusually large
supply of cottons sent to that country In
1906 and the early part of 1906.

RAPID CITY. S. D.. Jan. 12.-1 Special.)
The sheriff of this county received a call
for help last evening about 8 o'clock from
the agent of the Milwaukee road at Murdo
Mackenzie, who reported that tho agent
at Imlay, a station fifty-two miles east
of this city, was being held up by robbers.
Deputy Sheriff Tom Hewitt at once, took
the passenger train, leaving here at 8:30,
and arrested two men at Cpnata, the next
station cast of Imlay, about midnight. The
men gave their names as BUI Jones and
Nick Slmpkins, but If their story is truo
they are the victims of circumstances In
stead of being highwaymen. They state
that they were making their way east on
tho track and one of them knocked at the
agent's door to see If ho could get some
bread. Tito agent ordered him to hike
quickly or get shot. The young mn,n was
getting away aa fast as possible when the
station agent tried to accelerate his speed
by emptying his revolver In his direction.
Both of the tramp fled In the darkness
and were preparing to flip the passenger
train at Conata when arrested by the

The officer of the bank and tho authori
ties of Miner county have every reason to
believe that a man now under arrest at
Coopertown, N. D., wa one of the five or
six men who early Irt the fall held up and
robbed the Canov State bank at Canova
and succeeded In making their escape with
mora than $6,000 in cash, which they se
cured from tho wrecVed safe. M. F. Bev

fey, a Miner county deputy sheriff, have
returned from Coopertown, wher they
went for the -purpose of taking a look at
the prisoner, for tho purpose ot striving 19
Identify him a one of the cracksmen who
robbed tho Canova bank. While they were
unable at the time definitely to Identify
him, they are confident he had a hand in
tho robbery of tho Canova bank, and they
now are busily engaged In securing tho
evidence necessary to connect him with tho
robbery, preliminary to securing hi sur
render by the North Dakota authorities,
so he can bo brought back to South Da

He made a run. and In the dark stepped

It's Your Move The postmaster general
has issued an order of notice that all rural
mull carriers have the right-of-way on all
country roads, and that carriages or con
veyances must surrender that right-of-way
to all carriers. That was the rule when
our mails were carried In our four-horse
stage coaches, and everyone had to get
out of the way when tho mall coach came
along. It Is a very serious matter for
anyone to obstruct the rapid transportation
of the I'nlted States man. Get out of the
road when the rural free 'delivery carrier
comes along with Uncle ' Sam's malls.

The Dahlman democracy has turned a
shrewd trick over which Its member are
chuckling. For one of 'the delegates-t-large
to Denver they endorsed Joseph Hay

Hay den is made ono of "the big four." the
other three will come from other part of
th state. The Jacksonlans had planned
to aak thia honor for C. J. Smyth, who
wa on of tho original Bryn men In

who are among his most lucrative client,
to say nothing of the Hayden frequently
furnishing the stopping place for Mr.
Bryan and entertaining him in their Komes
on hi visit to this city. As a conse
quence of all this Mr. Smyth would find
himself In a delicate position If he under
took to unhorse the Dahlman club candi
date. Of course, It may all yet bo ar
ranged by commissioning Mr. Smyth a
one of the district delegates, but for him
to take second place and give first place
to Mr. Hayden would bo equivalent to tho

charged with tho cost of Inspection they
will certainly add that cost to the price

The record of attendance at American
universities annually compiled by Prof.
Rudolph Tombs, Jr., of Columbia, presents
some Interesting figure for 1W7. Har
vard holds tho lead as tho largest uni
versity, with 6,246 students. Columbia, Mich
igan. Chicago, Cornell. Minnesota. Illinois.
Pennsylvania. Yale and California follow
ing In the order named.
These ten universities, says the New York
Independent, represent a total attendance
of over 4tW. The largest gains wero
made, by Columbia, New York university,
Illinois. Wisconsin, Michigan And Minne
sota; that Is, two eastern and four west
ern Institutions.
At three of the prominent state univer
sities of the middle west a decrease In
the number of male students enrolled Is
counterbalanced by an Increase In the num
ber of women. Wisconsin has eighty-seven
less men in 1907 than In 1904. but 138 more
women. There Is a steady gain In the en
rollment at Smith, Vassar and Bryn Mawr.
The greatest number of degrees conferred
In 1907 was by Hsrvard. with 1.187 to Its
credit. Michigan, Columbia and Yalo fol
low In the order named.
The decrease In the number of American
student at nil the German universities Is
this year more marked than ever. Ac
cording to the registration statistics of
BerlA University, which has been the most
popular of all the German unlversltle with
Americans, there arc now only ninety-five
students from this country sixty-eight men
and twenly-seven Women enrolled. Three
years ago there were 200 and ten years
go over 400.
Industrial Trulnlnar In School.
Popular belief Is that organized labor
Is not friendly to trade school training,
but a circular recently Issued by tho Na
ttonal Association for the Promotion of In
dustrial Training seems to Indicate that
the American Federation of Labor Is not
opposed to it. Resolutions adopted by the
education committee of the federation en
dorse the movement for Industrial educa
tion In the following terms: "That we en
dorse any policy of any society or associa
tion having for Us object the raising of
the standard of industrial education and
the teaching of the higher technique ' e(
our various Industries." In a report ac
companying the resolutions the committee
says: "After an exhaustive. Impartial dis
cussion your committee decided to record
Itself In favor of the best opportunities for
the most complete Industrial and technical
education obtainable for prospective appll
cents for admission into the skilled crafts
of this country, particularly as regards the
full possibilities of such crafts, to the end
that such, applicants be fitted not only for
all usual requirement sbul also for the
highest supervisory duties, responsibilities
and rewards; and your committee recom
mehds that the executive council give this
ubject It early and deep consideration,
examining established and proposed Indus
trial school systems, so that It may be
In l position to Inform the American Fed
eration or Labor what in the council's
opinion, would be the wisest course for or
ganized labor to pursue in connection
therewith." i
Correspondence gahool Building;.
The' building recently erected by the
American School of Correspondence In
Chicago Is located In the vicinity' of the
University of Chicago and It architecture
harmonises with tts educational environ
ment. The material of the exterior are paving
'brick of two shades, with Bedford stone
for enrichment, and moito-green tile In the
roof. The brick used In tho basement and
projecting courses of the rustications Is of
a purplish red, somewhat dapker than'that
used in the body. Its depth of tone being
strengthened by being laid with dark
Joints. The brick in the body olf the wall
Is a medium red, somewhat Variegated and
thus having life and pleasing texture. Its
general contrast to the darker material be
ing emphasized by being laid with white
joints and by while finish of the window
sash and frames.
Tho building faces south. It contains
four stories and basement. Tho general
Interior plan Is that of,the letter K, tho re
turn of the east aid west wings Inclosing
on two aides an open court wall In at the
rear and entered through an arched drive
way. In all It Interior arrangements and ap
pointments the building Is most admirably
and completely adapted to the use for
which It wa designed. The facilities, In
fact, possessed by this Institution for the
conduct of it practical course and tho
Imparting of high-grade and thorough In
struction, and the systematic methods that
have been evolved as the result of year
of experience In meeting the educational
nee9s of those' whom circumstances havs
denied the privilege of technical training
at resident schools, ara in themselves a
revelation of typical American Ingenuity
and enterprise.
