THE HOG OF DENM AKK
Proving to Be a Dangerous Rival of
the American Porker.
Rapid Growth' mm a Producer nd Ex
porter of Hoki and Hog Prodneti
La rye Cooperative Slaughter
Ilooaea Being Established.
The American hog has a European
rival. Denmark has come into the
field as a producer and exporter of
hogs and hog products, with a growth
at least interesting if not suggestive
to American producers of a commod
ity whose export value grew from
$S4,90S,698 in 1S91 to $119,961,503 in
1901. These figures show the total
value of hog products exported from
the United States in 1891 and 1901 re
spectively, the details for 1901 being:
Lard, $46,560,148; bacon, $37,499,026;
hams, $22,842,773; salted and pickled
pork, $9,926,633; fresh pork, $2,424,
537, and canned pork, $708,381.
The iact that hog products form
the largest single item in the expor
tations of the United States, having
exceeded last year by $2,000,000 those
of the manufactures of iron and steel,
whose exports have attracted so
much attention, lends interest to
some facts which have just reached
the treasury bureau of statistics re
garding the remarkable development
of the hog packing industry of Den
mark. This information is 'published
in the Danish Export Review, and
shows that the number of head of
swine in Denmark has increased from
301,000 in 1861 to 771,000 in 1881 and
1,168,000 in 1893, the latest year for
which statistics are available. The
prohibition of the importation of live
hogs into Germany and the United
Kingdom, which countries were Den
mark's principal customers in this
line, resulted in the establishment of
slaughter houses in Denmark and the
increase in the production of Danish
bacon and hams in recent years has
been phenomenal. The exports of
hams and bacon from Denmark have
grown from 9,120,000 Danish pounds
in 1878 to 129,700,000 Danish pounds
in 1898; the value increasing from
4,110,000 kroner in 1878 to 47,080,000
kroner in 1SD8, the value of the crown
being 26.8 cents.
As a consequence of the change
from the export of live swine to that
of slaughtered animals, the slaughter
houses have risen to the greatest im
portance, in Denmark during the last
ten or fifteen years. Whilst formerly
the slaughter houses belonged to pri
vate individuals, a large number of
joint and cooperative slaughter
houses have been established during
this period. This movement com
menced in 1S87 on account of the Ger
man importation prohibition, when it
became necessary to kill a consider
able number of swine which were for
merly sent to Germany alive for sale

HUGE RAILWAY GRANT.
Mexican Government Gives 22,000,
OOU Concession to Detrolter to
One of the most important railroad
deals of recent date has just been
completed in the City of Mexico, when
Sidney A. Wetherbee, of Detroit, se
cured concessions on 1,500 miles of
railroad from the Mexican govern
ment. The concessions were $10,000 a
mile cash for the construction of the
road and a grant of 7,000,000 acres of
land, the total aggregating $22,000,
000. The line will run from the Kan
sas City & Orient railroad at Presidio
Del Norte to Metamora, and thence to
the east coast of Mexico. Following
the east coast the road will run to
Campechi, on the gulf.
At Metamora the Mexican road will
connect with the Brownsville, Corpus
Christi & Gulf railroad, a line 100
miles long, that will have its southern
terminus at Brownsville, Tex., oppo
site Metamora. Engineers are now
verifying the survey on this line pre
paratory to starting work of construc
tion at once. When the two lines are
completed an almost air line to St.
Paul from the City of Mexico will be
Cluh House to Bible Class.
At a social gathering held the other
night by the Young Men's Bible class
of the Fifth Avenue Baptist church it
was announced that through the gen
erosity of its leader, John D. Rocke
feller, Jr., the class in a short time
would be provided with a clubhouse of
its own. Mr. Rockefeller for that pur
pose has leased and completely fur
nished a four-story brick house at 15
West Forty-fifth street. The prepa
rations are so far advanced that the
date of opening has been fixed for
November 1. The club will be at the
disposal of all the young men of the
church and their friends. It will be
kept open every night, and, barring
such proceeds as may be obtained from
a normal membership fee, all the expenses-
of its maintenance will be
borne by Mr. Rockefeller.
Severe Blow to Russia.
The correspondent of the New York
Times at Odessa says recent returns
in regard to Russia's trade with China
bear testimony to the severity of the
blow dealt to Russia by the outbreak
in China. In the first four months
of this year the trade by the Kiakhta
route amounted - to 850,000 roubles
($437,750), as compared with the trade
in the corresponding months of last
year of 6,800,000 roubles. In the light
of these figures, remarks the corre
spondent, the attitude of the Russian
journals toward the restoration of'
Manchuria to the Chinese is intelli
