-Resources of Country Are Vast,
Writes Our Consul.
It believe there is no place in the
world where the wagon or cart traffic
is equal to that of Newchwang. The
carts compete with the railroads in a
haul of 400 miIeS or more. writes Con
sul Henry II. \l1ier. in the National
Geographical Magazine. During the
winter months. when the roads are
5rmly frozen. there are not less than
2.000 carts, each carrgV:1 two tons
per day coming -,- the port. each
drawn by four to seven mules or
ponies. Some of :hese carts are from
thirtv to fortv dav- on the r,ad. in
order to reach the market. It is
under such conditions as these that
the trade of Newchwang amounting
to nearly S2o.ooo.ooo per year. has
grown. It is a mistake to attribute
the growth (f this tr:adc to the build
ing of the Russian railway. The rail
ways are just begining to have an
influence toward improving the trade
of the country. .nd will add much to
the development of the productive
ness and trade of the country, but
that remains for the future to show.
T.he country has made this marvel
ous growth independent of the rail
ways. and what it will do with them
.depends upon the wisdom of the rail
Before 1902 practically all the for
-eign trade in Manchuria came
through the port of Newchwang. and
the Chinese annual customs returns
gave the complete statement of im
-ports and exports for all the coun
try. This was alter, ' to a consider
able extent by imports and exports
in 1902 through Dalny. Port Arthur
and Vladivostok. In i9o,; the situa
tion changed still further, and for
-eign imports now enter through New
chwang, Dalny and Port Arthur via
'Tientsin, Chin Wang Tao. and thence
by rail over the Chinese railway re
-cently completed to the river Liao at
'Shin Min Tun: also by the Russian
-railway from Vladivostok and Siberia
:arfd -Russia. Another important
-rounLte-has been opened in Manchuria
from the sea up the Sungari river by
large river steamers to Kirin.
There are no records telling the or
igin of the goods imported. American
goods reach here in many ways.
*Some come from Hong Kong and
-Canton,'large quantities from Shang
-hai, and some from Japan, while
much American cotton is manufac
tured tinto yarn and goods in Japan
and then shipped to this place.
The year 1903 was the best that
'Manchuria -has ever known as to its
production. Crops were unusually
egood, and prices were also good.
'Both M-anchuria and Mongolia are
-marvelously -ich, and, under a good
.government, with transportation pro
-vided and 'its timber and mineral
'wealth devEloped and added to its
:agrictiltural -resources. Manchuria,
-will prove one E-f the greatest markets
~for 'United States goods, as we!1 as a
splendid field for the investment of
'United States capital. In 1894 and
i895 it was the field of war between
China and Japaii; in 190o it was the
4istrict of the Boxer movements that
were so destructive, and now again,
'in 1904, it is the theater of war be
tween Russia -and Japan.
Notwiit'hst'anding all these wars, the
country continues to giiow in produc
tiveness and commerce. Its people
are largely industrious, frugal and
capable, and need only an enterpris
ing, substantia1l and 'honest govern
ment to insure them -great prosperity.
Manchuria is not yet thicldy popu
lated, and farmns are mostly in large
tracts of ioo or 2oo acres, and even
more. The great commercial dev1
opment has come as a result of its
agricultural development and the 'set
tlement of the country by agricul
tural people from other parts of
Although the country is extremely
rich in minerals, including coal, iron
copper, silver, gold and other kinds,
these have only been worked in a
small and crude way by the natives.
When the mineral wealth is develop
ed and worked by modern methodis
in a manner fitting its economic pos
sibilities, Manchuria will prove to be
one of the richest sections of Asia.
It has the happy combination of a
splendid variety and vast quantities
of minerals, valuable forests, great
agricultural wealth, and an indus
trious, capable people, whose labor is.
perhaps, the best in the world for its
cost. In ddition, it has good water
try in which railway construction and
operation are very economical. All
of these advantages are combined
with a healthy. invigorating climate,
whose crops never fail.

fatal wound being inflicted on the

literally torn to pieces. Clark's
body was likewise burned and both

is doubtful if he can get well.
