B THE NORTH AND THE S?UTI.
H A correspondent nsks whether the Northe"n or Southern states
Hnave increased most in population in the last- left ydffr.
H There are divisions of the North that hare exceeded other
Hscctions of the South, and the reverse is true.
H The New England states increased 960.004 ; the Middle Atlantic,
Hp,861,214; the east north central states, 2,265.040; the west north
Hcentral states, 1,290,496.. This is a total of 8.377,416.
V The south Atlantic states increased 1,751,415 , the east south cen
Htralstatcs, 862,144; the ws.-south central states, 2,252,244; a total of
B Tlnrlhcrease iTor tho Northern states is about 17 per cent, and
m for the Southern states 20 per cent.
r These percentages, as is evident, do not include the Western
m states where the increase was 57.3 per cent in the intermountain di-
m vision, and 73.5 per cent on the Pacific coast.
M There is a group of states in the very heart of the country, com-
H prising Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky and .Tennessee, .which
H has shown comparatively no increase; in fact, Iowa has lost pop-
H UTAH'S POPULATION.
H The latest census bulletin received at this office proves that
H Utah has made favorable progress as compared with other states.
H In 1900, this stated population was 27G.749, and ten years prior
H thereto it was 210,779. This is an increase of 34.9 per cent for the
H last ten years, as compared with 31.3 per cent for the first decade.
H Utah had its greatest growth at a time when Idaho, Wyoming,
H Montana and even Colorado were wholly undeveloped. The settling of
H the valleys of this state was brought about by an almost unnatural
H condition, namely, the zeal of a people devoted to a religion. And,
B, as a result, having experienced at an early date a growth far beyond
m that of its neighbors, the development of late years must of necessity
M have been comparatively slow. Furthermore, with the opening of
m Southern Idaho to irrigation, making available hundreds of thous-
m ands of acres of rich, new soil obtainable at a very low fioiire, with
M Utah farmers, as the most experienced water users, knowing the pos-
M Bibilities of the Snake Valley reclamation, the expected happened
M and Utah contributed thousands of families for the upbuilding of the i
M state to the north of us. It is said that two-thirds of Hi- ram,,
h state to vie north of us. It is said that two-thirds of the farming-
H communities in many of Idaho's southern counties were drawn from
H - Utah.
H -- S Utahj its 96602 crease, did fairly well; still the state
B BIffht ve shown greater improvement if there had basn a more har-,
gdVionious effort to advance its best interests.
H Even with the handicap which the state has suffered Utah nexf
HB0 Colorado, ranks as the most populous state in the intermountai
Kountry, with the exception of Montana, which has only 2,702 mo
population than this state. .
1 Idaho is still 48,000 behind Utah, notwithstanding the Gfn
VTState s 101.3 per cent increase in the past ten years. f

I FORM TRADE
I WASHINGTON, Jan 1 Tho foreign
commerce of the UnUed States for
1910, Including both exports and im
ports, promises to set u new record
in the hlBtory of the nation
Tho olevon months ending with No
cmbor, for which the bureau of sta
tistics of tho department of commerce
and labor has secured complete fig
ures, have brought tho grand totnl of
exports aud Imports to the enormous
sum of $3.063,3S4,S54
Only tho banner year of 1907 com
pares with this figure The total
commerce for tho first eleven months
of that year was $3,017,23-1,045. Tho
traJe figures for December, tho clos
ing month of this year, nre expected
to swell the total of the nation's for
olgn commerce to nearly $3,400,000,
000 Tho breaking of commercial rec
ords will not apply to exports. The
ImportH will reach tho highest flguro
for any yoar In tho history of tho
United Slates, but the sum of the
exports will probably fall $75,000,000
short of that of 1907 Notwithstand
ing Uils decline and tho Increaso in
the Imports of the country, the bal
anco will still be close to $300,000,

The greater quantity of materials
Imported Is due to tho development of
manufacturing Industries which im
port crude materials or import articlos
partly manufactured, in order to cora
pleto the manufacture in this coun
try. The slower devolopment of tho
export trade Is due mainly to the
fact that tho United States Is export
ing a emnller quantity of brcadstuffs
and other food products each year
and Is more nearly consuming its to
tal output of such articles.
The full year's figures for exports
are expected to he $1.S40,000,000 and
the Imports $1,550,000,000. This is an
increase of 90 per cent in imports
over the year 1900, and an increase
In exports of 25 per cent over that
The Importation of crude materials
and materials for further manufacture
moro than doubled in thnt tlmo On
the export Bide, tho valuo of the out

$540,000,000 of such products In 1900.
This is a decline of more than 35 per

PERRY'S CASE TO

plice of Gladys Whitney In the theft
of $10,500 worth or diamonds, will
face the district court without further
Perry was arraigned on a charge of
grand larceny before Police Judge
Whltakor Saturday morning. He was
not represented by attorney when ho
laced tho court and was nervous and
111 at case.
Assistant County Attorney Dan Al
exander desired to waive his prelimi
nary hearing and have the case roach
the district court as soon as possible.
The defendunt confirming this state
ment, a plea of not guilty was entered,
and bonds were fixed at $5,000, in
default of which Perry remains in
tho county Jail.
While no one except the officers
and the Plnkerton men 1b pormittod
to see tho accused man, It Is sUued
that he still denies any part In tho

WANT TO CANCEL
WASHINGTON, Jon. 1. President
Taft was appealed to today by former
Forester Gifford Plnchot nnd his
brother, Amos Pinchot, to cancel iin-
mediately without further hearing the
to-called Cunniugham Alaskan coal
claims. In a voluminous brief filed
with the president. In accordance with
permission given In a letter written
to them by Secretary Norton on No
vember 29, Mr Plnchot nnd his broth
er contend that the record In the case
"abundantly proves that tho claims
are Illegal' and that from the begin
ning the claimants have conspired to
defraud the government." ,
"The report to a court for a rehear
ing of the case is necessary to secure
Justice and protect the people's prop- (
erty," says the brief.
"Tho case against the claimants Is
already conclusive. We believe the
duty of the executive In regard to the
claims is obvious and Immediate. The
claims should be cancelled by the
president forthwith." ;
"The transfer of tho Cunningham
caseB to a court for a decision upon
tho present record would relievo the
executive department of responsibility
for failure to luve the case against
the claimants fully presented by at
torneys of experience and ability and j
for omitting to produce all the evi-
dence of fraud available," declares the
brief after charging that "in spite of
tho clearness of the. existing proof
we believe It to bo onr public duty to
point ou that tho whole of the case
against the claimants has not been
"The ovldcnco in this case goeH
much further than to establish tho
fraud of attempting by subjorfuge to ,
acquire from the government more
coal land than the law allows It
bhows that from tho beginning tho
claimants acted with the definite and
BU8tainod Intention of defeating the
purpose und essontlnl spirit of the
law the spirit and purpose to prevent
monopoly, and secure competitive de
velopment of the nation's resources "
Regarding the effect of monopoly In
Alaska, the brief says:
"It is evident that nn enormous
saving can be mado to tho people of
Alaska, to the whole northwest and
to the United States navy If only
these coal mines are opened, under
conditions of competition." It chnrges
that "tho Industries of Alaska havo
been for years largoly In tho hands
of a great and oppressive monopoly,
tho Guggenheim syndicate, which has
kept out other capital, throttled com
petition and held Alaska at a stand
The brier recites that tho case ror
the government Is supported by five
main lines of evidence, as follows: ,
"First. The history of the opera
tions of the Cunningham entrymen In
Alaska, as derived from their own
records and statements, shows that
from the beginning to the end they
were nil members of a single associa
tion engaged in acquiring a Joint prop
erty and that the claimants never
owned these claims separately.
"Second Tho book of accounts of
the Cunningham group and tho re
ports mado by its agents are all evi
dently based on, the assumption that
nil the claims are one property, owned
