! A steady and a vary healthy growth in
j manufacture! ot Mebraaka la Indicated
j by an advance cemua bulletin. In MM
. the eataMlshmeitu engaged tn manufae
' tura numbered l,69i. In 1304, five yean
being 9.T In the 1SS9-W4 period and
iti la the UCM period.
During the period of 'fifty years from
1S5S to BOB the groat value ot product
per capita ot total population Increased
from tn to Slat. During the same time
the increase of wage earners waa from
SK in or 11 per cent of total popula
tion, to S per cent of the greatly Increased
popiftation in 1SU. with an army ot nearly
0W on the payrolls, excluding pro
prietors and firm members and salaried
In COO . SS.7 per cent ot the impu
tation resided in incorporated cities
and towns ot 1 .600 or over; in 1 36.1 per
cent of the total population resided In
such places. The density of population
had risen from IS. per square milo In
1 to li In ISO. From which It will be
seen that the growth tn manufacturing
strength baa been much greater than the
growth in population In fifty years.
Ita Showlag at Profits.
Profits on the business dona cannot be
shown, for the reason, aa set out In the
bulletin, that "census data do not show
the entire cost of manufacture, and con
sequently cannot be used to show profits."
Neither Is any account taken ot Interest
or depreciation by the census returns.
What are designated aa 'very defective
returns regarding capital" ara also a
stumbling block, which makes It impose!
bla to determine the rata ot profit on
investment, even If known expenses be
deducted from the value ot finished
In addition to twenty-five Industries
aet out aeparately the enumerators found
nine other kinds of factories-making bags
other than paper, brooms, soap, steam
railroad cars, coffee and apica grinding,
food preparations, distilled liquors, copper
smelting and refining, lead smelting and
refining. In the table below these una
of Industry ara grouped under the last
designation to tha list, "all other Indus
tries." v

later, tha n amber had risen to l,Si. while
in IMS tha census bureau Investigators
found :,S40 establishments, an Increase of
37.4 per cant In tha five-year period. To
day, according to the bast Information,
low or mora manufacturing plants are
operating la the state.
No figures are available as to tha num
ber ot persona engaged In factories In
1X90, but In 1904 the number so employed
was ascertained to be S.3M. In IMS the
.workers In Nebraska factories had in
creased to ., a percentage of gain
In the five-year period, of XX Dividing
all those engaged in manufactures Into
the three classes, proprietors and firm
members, salaried employes, and wsge
earners, tha percentages of gain from
1904 to were S.S, W.4 and 391. re
spectively. The salaries and wages paid
amounted to tha handsome total of l.
439,000. ,i
Valae of Prwdact Ftgarea.
The tMO establishments turned out
prod nets to the amount ot thtt.01t.00t In
making this product materials were con
sumed valued at tia.otl.aoo. Thus, the
value added to tha raw material by man
ufacture waa 347,938,000. and In holding
that this figure best represents the "net"
wealth created by the factory operations
during the year the census report says:
"Tha value of products is not a satis
factory measure of either the absolute
or the relative Importance of a given
Industry, because, only a part of this
valua is actually created by t,h manu
facturing process carried on in the in
dustry itself. Another part of it. and
often by far the larger part, represents
the value of the materials used, which
have been produced by agriculture or
raining, or by other Induetrial establish
ments. For many purposes, therefore,
tha best measure of the importance of
different classes of Industry is the value
created aa the result ot the manufactur
ing operations carried on within the In
dustry. This valua Is obtained by de
ducting the cost of the materials cos
tumed from the value of the product."
in Mmnuiiu "value of products" the
amounts given represent the selling value
at the factory of all products manuiac
tured. during the year, which may differ
from tiro value of the products sola.
Amounts received for work on materials
furnished by others are included,
ladlvidaal Operatloaia Kept Secret.
In this connection It is Interesting to
note thst In the Item "value added
ly manufacture" ihat Is. value of prod
ucts less cost of material-there waa a de-
- r iti nr cent reported for the
period 1-1!M. while for the period M-
them was an Increase ot . per cent in
this Item. The statistician explains that
the decrease for the first period waa "due
largely to the figures reported for tlie
had ameltlng and refining industry. This
Industry Is incladed under the head 'all
other industries.' because Its statistics
cannot be given without disclosing Indi
vidual operation."
Figures on capital Involved In manu
factures are frankly admitted, by the
. eomptltr of the report, to bo "an defec-
H)- as la be -without value, eacept as
tndiratinK -Very general conditions." In
IM the capital was given aa tfS.5ns.0OT. in
TM and in lta ,!.. Ihas
hom ing a gala of 61 per cent in the
live-vear period lnr.
Kxpenses of operating rose from f.lV

Waata Ear a era. Hears aad Wages.
Omaha and Bouth Omaha, with but 13-1
par cent ot tha total population of Ne
braska, giv employment to 68-1 per cent
of the waga earnera of tha state. They
also produce 77 per cent of the total
valuation of manufactured aasOucta.
Of the HO waga earners f oirtid at work
by the census enumerator; J1"!, worked
forty-eJght hours or less pit v.eea, an
worked between forty-eight a- f fifty-four
hours, 107 Worked fifty -fowV hours. U7
worked between flfty-foUr- 'atid sisty
hours, 1,901 worked sIxtA'httrs. UH
worked between sixty anA tvrnty-two
hours, 184 worked seventy-tV; hours and
only 4i over seventy-two a, "in.
The wage earners were 2H I Men and
3.M women of 10 years or ore . tjnder II
years were ITS boys snd thirty ln girls.
According to tha terms of theCJKld labor
lar ot Nebraska, none of theaa children
could have been legally at work without
The statistics In this bulletin rover a
year's operations and are probably the
nearest correct ot any ever made. Per
centage distribution by sex and age of
the wage earners In each Industry fur
December 15, or the nearest representa
tive day, was calculated from the actual
numbers reported for that dale. This
percentage has been applied to tha aver
age number ot wage earners fur the year
In that Industry to determine the average
number of men. women and children em
ployed. These' calculated averages for
tha several Industries have been added up
to give the distribution for tba state as a
Mllllaa Indastrr ta straws.
Borne emphasis is laid on the high rank
taken by the flouring Industry, both as to
number of establishments snd value of
product. This takes In both flour and
grist mills. While the principal cereals
have always been the staple and most
largely grown crops of Nebraska, It is
only within qulle recent years that the
milling industry has experienced this
significant growth. While a number of
tha mills are of more than average' shte.
the majority of them are small and are
widely scattered In rural communities,
which may be considered a very healthy
indication. During the last decade the
value of mill products Increased tO,04:.4W,
or 13.1 per cent. There la nothing spas
modic about (his growth of Nebraska's
milling Industry, for tha percentage at
increase In the five-year period, l4-'0t.
was Just a trifle less than during the
earlier period. 1S9V04. Fifty years ago
Nebraska bad lesa than twenty small
mills, with a total output valued at
slightly over SllO.OSO.
