Dam Project Revived I
The project to build dams across
Paint and Rocky Fork creeks noar the
Point has again been revived. Tho
dams are for tho purpose of securing
power for tho generating of elec

The project was agitated a few
years ago and considerable prelimi

surveying and locating the best places
for the construction of tho dams.
Last week surveyors wore again on
the ground and it was understood
that Columbus capitalists are now
behind the movement.
It would cost In tho neighborhood
of a, million and a half dollars to
carry tho movement through. That

Statistics, Department of Commerce
and Labor, that tho total value would
In 1012 for the first time cross tho
billion dollar line. That bureau that
has just completed Its figures show-,
ing the exportation of manufactures, '
states the total value of manufac
tures exported In the fiscal year at
81,021,753.018, of which $074,302,003
was tlio valuo of manufactures ready

This does not Include foodstuffs
which have undergone a process of
preparation or manufacture, since
tho bureau groups articles of that
class under J.ho general heading of
"food stuffs"" exported. This 1,022
million dollars worth of manufactures
exported In the fiscal year 1012 Is more
than doublo that of 1003, 3 times that
of 1808, 4 times that of 1800, 5 times
as great as in 1804, practically (I times
as great as In 1800, and 10 times as
great as In 1870, tho value of manu
factures exported In a single year
never reached as much as 100 million
dollars until the year 1873. Comparing
1012 with 1002, a decade earlier, the
totals are: manufactures ready for
consumption in 1012, 074 million dol
lars, against 322 million in 1002; man
ufactures for further use In manufac
turing in 1012, 317 million dollars,
against 132 million In 1002; total man
ufactures exported in 1012 1,022 mil
lion dollars against 455 million in 1002
having thus increased about 125 per
cent during the decade.
This growth In the exports of man
ufactures Is more rapid than that of
the other classes of merchandise.
Manufactures formed 47 per cent, of
the exports of 1012, against 32 per
cent, In 1002 and 18 per cent. In 1802.
This increasing share which the
manufactures form of tho exports
occurs chiefly at tho expense of food
stuffs which formed but about 20 per
cent, of the exports of 1012, against
approximately 33 per cent. In 1002 and
50 per cent. In 1802.
The prlnclpil articles forming this
billion dollars worth of manufactures
exported are: Iron and steel, copper,
mineral oil, manufactures of wood,
leather , and manufactures thereof,
cotton manufactures, cars and car
riages, automobiles, and paper and
manufactures thereof. Tho total
value of iron and steel manufactures
exported In the year was 208 million
dollars, against 00 million in 1002, a
decade earlier, and 20 million in 1802,
two decades earlier. The chief growth
in the exports of Iron and steel man
ufactures has occured slnco 1800, the
total value of the exports of Iron and
steel never having touched tho 100
million dollar line until the year 1000,
and only crossed the 200 million dol
lar line In the year 1011, when tho
total was 231 million, against 203 mil
lion In the year just ended. Machin
ery alone amounted to 115 million
dollars value, and this does not In
clude agricultural Implements, of
which the year's exports amounted to
35 million dollars, or automobiles and
parts thereof, which amounted to
practically 23 million dollars. Auto
mobiles show perhaps the most rapid
growth in the list of manufactures
exported, having been as aboe Indi
cated, 23 million dollars in 1012,
against less than 1 million in 1002, a
decade earlier. The total value of
complete automobiles that wero ex
ported In tho year is 21 million dol
lars and to this must be added about
4 million dollars worth of parts of
automobiles and 2 million for tires,
making the grand total for automo
biles and parts thereof, including
tires, about 28 million dollars, against
5 million in 1003 and less than 1 mil

Judgo K B. Dillon, of Columbus, an
nounced Monday that he would with
draw as the Republican Candidate for
governor and that his letter of re
signation would be given to the state
central committee o Wednesday.
Ills grounds for refusing to make
the race are the lack of harmony in
the party and the probability of a
third party slate ticket being placed
In the Held.
The action of Judgo DUllon Is a
bitter disappointment to Republicans
generally, as It was believed that his
nomination would cement the warring
factions and was generally acceptable
to both Taft and Roosevelt Republi
cans. Who will be selected to nil his place
on the ticket has not been decided.
Rumor Is rife and many have been
mentioned, but a successor has not
It Is useless toclahn that tho resigna
tion of Judge Dllllon does not injure
the chances of Repupllcan success in
Ohio this fall. It does and only time
will determine, whether a solution
which gives hope of Republican suc
cess can be found.
Walter F. Brown, chairman of the
Rupubllcan State Central Committee
and Roosoveltjeader In Ohio, in an
Interview Tuesday suggested that a
candidate for governor be secured that
would bo acceptable to both factions
and that the state, district and county
ticket be placed on loth tickets.
This plan would insure victory for the
party In tho state and It Is hoped that
tho leaders of both factions will be
will bo willing to concede something
and that this may bo done.
Thero are softer beds than those of
the politicians these days.
