Washixgtos, Jub ). The census of
fice baa in press and will shortly publish
for distribution an elaborate report on

Is 29.6r per cent, in quantity and 75.92 per
cent, in value; that the increase in tic
(lumber of hands employed is 138. 4l per
cent and the increase in the total amount
of wages paid is UVX per cent.

The A pparent Inerease Corrected.
This exhibit of an apparent enormous
increase of capital invested appears to be
dae to the radical change in the form of
inquiry made at the present census, that
at the census of 1SS not bringing out all
the facts. According to the census of
is0 the proportion of capital employed to
the value of manufactured products was
reported to be ftisre .to the tl. In
the proportion is stated to be $1.52 to 1.
The latter proportion, if applied to the
amount of products reported at the tenth
census, would produce the sum of lllv
97,M6 as the actual capital employed at
that period, and the increase computed on
this basis rs found to be per cent.

The Supply of Standing Tinil.t-r.
The city o Menominee shows the great
est increase of production during the
decade. In lsso it ranked sixth in the nine
principal lumber producing points in ;he
United States, anil is now found to le stc
ond. It is shown from returns of individ
ual manufacturers that their present hold
ings of standing timber in this group of
states are only sufficient to snpply them
for about five years at the present rate of
consumption. The quantity in reserve is
noticed to be principally comprehended
by what is standing on lands owned by
federal and state governments. This
quantity, howerrr, is unknown.
Ouantitj in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
The federal government sux'plies no in
formation on this subject, but the hold
ings of public lands reported by state gov
ernments iodic.-ife that no considerable
area of timbered lands is owned by the
state of Michich. -The total area of land
held by the state of Wisconsin on Sept.
30, li, is reported at C71,C3u acres. Most
of the land is located in the northern
counties, and about one-half is seen to be
timbered. The state of Minnesota re
ports ownership of 13.0ftj,0i0 acres of tim
bered land, containing 20,(X OOu.OuO feet of

TROUBLE WITH THE PHILADELPHIA
Che I Top-Heavy and Obliged la tarry
Wa!IINgT"N. June Ai. Admiral Gher
rdi has leen in consultation with navy
department officials recently in regard to
the lack of stability of his flagship, the
Philadelphia. Ever since that cruiser Las
been in commission she has had a tendency
to roll in an uncomfortable way, esjecittKy
when the coal bunkers are comparatively
empty. To overcome thi tendency it Las
been necessary for her to carry more or
less water ballast in a compartment of Ler
double bottom. On her recent trip from
Port-au-Prince to Xew York the Phila
delphia carried 3X tons of water in this
Trnpoked Remedy fur the Kefect.
The technical explanation of this defect
is that the ship's meta-center is not far
enough above Ler center of buoyajicy In
other words, she is top-heavy. It is pro
posed to remedy this defect by lightening
her top hamper by taking out her heavy
steel masts and substituting lighter musts
of wood, and at the same time lightening
her military top as much as possible.
It is expected thut she can be sufficiently
lightened in this way to make Ler perfect
ly stable. -
A Great Customs Suit Derided.
Washington, June 20. At Philadelphia
yesterday the United States court decided
the famous hat trimmings suit against
the government. This case involved only
a little over tG00, but there are a large
number of cases, for which this was the
test, involving about 53000,000, which
the United States wilt have to refund if
the decision stands. The (question is
whether certain silk goods- ribbons, etc.
are fahat trimmings" or silk manufac
tures." If the former, as the merchants
claim, the duty is 20 per cemt.; if the let
ter, as the customs officials contend, it is
60 per cent. The case will be taken to the
supreme court. .

BOOM FOR FULLER.
Rather Nebulous Just Now, but
NEBRASKA. MAN THE HEAD BOOMER
He Think the Chief Justice a Good Man
Who Could Corral the Granger Vote
A Minnesota Politician Beady to Make
Him First Choice Others from West
ern States Who Look Kindly on the
Movement Defect In the Illinois Bal
Chicago, June 20. The Herald says:
During the last few days a number of
prominent Democrats have been at the
Grand Pacific hotel. While they are not
in the city on any special political matter,
they have not been idle, and yesterday
morning a little presidential boom was
quietly launched with the name of Chief
Justice Fuller flying at the masthead.
The author of this movement is ex Co n
gressman John A. McShane, of Nebraska.
He is the most popular Democratic politi
cian in his state, and his favorite for 102
will have many supporters from the fact
alone that he is McShane's choice. Dur
ing the last two years the ex-congressman
has not been mixed up in politics. Mat
ters have been so confused in Nebraska
that he did not care to take a hand in it.
The Third Tarty Is His Hope.
Now that the third party has come into
the field. Mr. McShane will put on his war
paint. He has been here two or three
days talking with influential members of
his party from Nebraska, Minnesota, Wy
oming, Montana and Illinois, and it was
found that Justice Fuller was a favorite.
Last evening the gathering was increased
by the arrival of Pat Kelly, of Minnesota,
an ardent friend of ex-I'resident Cleve
land. As soon as he reached the Grand
Pacific he looked over the arrivals and
shortly afterward found his way to Mr.
For Cleveland or "Another."
I-ater in the evening, when asked to talk
politic, he replied that he would have
something to tell in a week or so, but mat
ters were in such shape now that the pub
lication of his plans might be injurious.
"Will you support Mr. Cleveland"' was
-Certainly, if he is nominated. r
"Do you favor any other man?"'
'There is a man from the state of Illi
nois that can pilot the Democratic pirty
to success in ?s,.r2. He doesn't live many
miles from Chicago when at home, either."'
-Is he Chief Justice Fuller.1''
-I didn't say.""
McShane Wa Outptken.
Mr. McShane was not so reticent, and
when asked who was the most available
man in the Democratic party emphat
ically replied that Justice Fuller was the
' Have you deserted Mr. Cleveland?" was
'IVmnoms never desert, but we must
nominate the right man this time, fcr
without him success is doubtful. Clove
land is a great man. and I like him. but
I really believe that Justice Fuller could
get more votes. And it is votes that we
are after. The farmers and kickers have
torn politics all to pieces in several sec
tions of the country, but they have not
injured the Democratic party as much as
they have the Republican. Now if we
don't take advantage of this situation we
ought to get whipped."
Winked His "Other" Eye.
-Can the Nebraska delegation be deliv
ered to Justice Fuller"
-While I do not attempt to speak forthe
Democracy of my state, I believe that he
can get our votes."1
Mr. McShane would not say what had
been done for Justice Fuller"s boom. On
the contrary he declared that no definite
plans had been made, ami that nothing
had been accomplished but talk. All the
while he winked the other eve.
DEFECT IN A BALLOT BILL.
An Entire Section Omitted from the
New Illinois Law.
Srr.lNGFlF.LP, Ills., June 23. A serious
defect has been discovered in the ballot re
form bill. The governor considered it
yesterday, and was ready to affix his sig
nature thereto, when it appeared that sec
tion 2S, containing an important provision,
had been entirely dropped out. This sec
tion provides that no person shall do any
electioneering or soliciting of votes on
election day within ICO feet of ant polling
place, nor interrupt, hinder, or oppose any
person while approaching a polling plae
forthe purpose of voting, under ienalty
of a fine of $23 to f 100 for each offense.
An Error in Copying.
The records show that this section was
in the bill when it went to the senate and
they do not show that the senate struck it
out. It is certain that the conference
committee did not touch it. so the error
lonbtless occurred in making the copy
that was laid before the governor. It may
'je that the officers of the legislature can
'V.me here and supply the missing link. If
"hey cannot do this the governor will
;irobably siun the bill with this important
provision left out. The section stands
i.lone, and no other provision of the bill is
a. fleeted bv it.
