It is proposed to add two new de

a department of commerce and a de

About 80,000 acres are devoted to
sugar beets in Sweden, and the
ground is made up of 16,600 individ
ual farms. In 1911 the farmers re
ceived over $7,000,000 for their beets.
It takes about 33,000 persons to take
care of this crop, and 10,000 persons
are employed at the sugar factories.
About $3,000,000 is paid out annually
to wageworkers connected with the
sugar industry. The railroads and
steamship companies have an income
of $1,200,000 from the same source.
In 1911 the sugar trust purchased
goods made in Sweden for $1,000,000.
The sugar tax amounts to $4,700,000,
which is 12 per cent of the revenues
of the national government.

The question of woman suffrage Is
now before the Danish house of com
pons and is arousing widespread in
terest. The reform is bound up with
(the projected general amendment oi
(the Danish constitution. Two points
are involved: One, the manner of
election for the Landsthing (upper
Jiouse), and two, the lowering of the
qualifying voting age for the lower
house, from 30 to 25 years, together
with the extension of this franchise
to women. With regard to the Lands
Ithing, it is proposed to abolish certain
privileges, such as the nomination of
twelve members directly by the king,
and to place the electoral power in the
hands of the municipalities. Since
women have a place on these bodies,
they would alee become automatically
Included as voters for the upper house.
It is contended that the proposed
amendment is on the lines of the old
Danish constitution of 1849, into
which the reactionary spirit of 1866
introduced baneful privileges. The
Liberals, Radicals and Socialists, who
are supporting the premier, show no
wish to exclude women, and the Con
servatives are also said to be in favor
of their inclusion.
One of the most lucrative of agri
cultural industries in Denmark is the
cultivation of beet sugar. Substantial
profits are reaped by the farmers, -and
for many years shareholders in the
Danish sugar refinery companies have
received" dividends of 25 per cent and
more. The only drawback is that la
bor has to be imported from Galicia,
the Danish peasantry declining to
work in the beet fields, and as many
as 25,000 Galician men and women ar
rive in Denmark for the seed time and
remain until the harvest in October.
As may be expected, the Galicians are
a rude and uncultivated set of people.
They spend only a fraction of their
earnings for meals, and they have
now discovered how to save their re
turn fare, being fully aware of the
fact that their presence in the coun
try is not desired one single moment
after the termination of their con
tract. On being paid they immedi
ately send all their wages home by
post, and being without a cent in
their pockets and absolutely without
any means of subsistence, the au
thorities have consequently to pay
their return fare. Thousands of these
cunning Galicians have this year
played this game at the expense of
the Danish taxpayer, and the govern
ment has promised to consider what
steps should be taken. It is suggest
ed that the farmers should deduct
from the final payment the amount
necessary for the railway fare, but
against this is to be placed the fear
of the Galicians causing a riot should
they not receive their wages in full.
It is possible that a special act may

Less than a year ago someone pro
posed that tfie farmers living around
the Vata waterfalls in Aasen, some
distance north of Trondhjem, go to
work and make use of the water pow
er by means of a power station. A
stock company was organized and the
work started, and so ably was the Job
handled that the plant has been in
successful operation for about a
month. The capacity of the plant is
120 horsepower, which is enough to
supply the present needs of the com
munity. The number of stockholders
is twenty-five. There is perhaps no
country in the world where electric
plants are built and put to work so
rapidly as in Norway.
This is the start of an ordinary
newspaper correspondence from Fin
marken, the northern portion of Nor
way: "The southwest wind is moan
ing its monotonous strain over the
mountains, the fjords and the ocean.
Instead of mild weather we now have
a crisp, dry cold on bare ground. The
ice has become thick and safe on all
small lakes, and as the days pass it
is also closing up the large ones. The
northern lights are gathering into
denser and brighter bundles as the
nights grow longer and darker. It is
hard work for the face of the sun to
force a beaming way through the
heavy autumn cloud-banks, and its
day's journey is growing shorter every
day. Far out in the ocean the snow
clouds tower and threaten like moun
tains of driven snow. But as long
as the southwest wind is kept up they
are unable to reach the shore."
It is an established fact that tuber
culosis is more common among sea
men and fishermen than among other
classes of people in Norway. This is
-explained on the ground that the ven
tilation of the sleeping rooms of the
people first mentioned is so very poor
that its bad effects cannot be oven
come by the abundance of fresh air
in which they work during the day.
Those who are combatting the rav
ages of tuberculosis will now make an
effort to have the authorities take
steps towards improving the sanitary
conditions on board merchant shipi
and in the dwellings of the fishermen.
