WliAsamtoovox Nov. 0.--The annual report of the secretary of agriculture begins with a comparison of the export trade of the past eaal year with that of the former year. He says that of more than one bil lion dollars, representing the exports of do* mastic preduets the past year, nearly 80 per cent consisted of agricultural products, thus not only making the United States the ored itor of the world for a sum exceeding two hundred million dollars in excess of exports over imports, but relieving the home mar kets from the surplus product, which would otherwise have reduced prices to a point be. low the cost of production. incee the last report the prohibition against American pork products has been withdrawn in all countries where they ex isted and forty million pounds of inspected pork, which, without inspection, could not have found a market abroad, were exported. He compares the prices for September, 1892, with those of September, 1890, the year before pork inspection was adopted, and shows an increase of 80 cents per hun dred pounds in favor of this year, an aver age of $2 per head on every hog. Referring to the proclamation declaring the country free from pleuro-pneumonia, he emphasizes the precautions taken before the proolamation was issued, and the thor oughly satisfactory grounds existing for the declaration of immunity and for the control and irevention of Texas fever. Ue concludes with the declaration that three times as much money was saved to cattle growers yearly as is required to run the whole department. He says the inspection laws have restored the confidence of for eigners in the healthfulness of American cattle. Live cattle exports in 1889 amounted I05,000 head, whereas in 1892 there were ex ported 394,000, at an increase in value averaging $18 per head. With reference to cereals the secretary attributes the excessive anticipations fo:med regarding the trioe for wheat throughout the crop year of 1891 to the failure to appreciate the changed condi tions now surrounding the production and marketing of the world's wheat crop. Hence the American farmer must reduce the wheat acreage and so bring production down to ther normal demand. The rainfall experiments the secretary says, are being made as congress directed, but the facts in his possession do not, in his opinion, justify the anticipations formed by the believers in the method of artificial rain making. He insists upon the necessity for a universal inspection of all animal food products, applicable not only to products intended for interstate or ex port trade, but those entering into domes tic consumption everywhere. The secre tary also points out many reasons making a national standard of grain highly desir able, and concludes that some system of national inspection and grading must be established in the interest of grain grow ers, under control of the secretary of alri culture. Reviewing the work of the bureau of animal industry he cities the gratifying confirmation, not only by the previous his tory of the animals, but in many cases by distinguished authorities abroad, of the diagnosis made by the American inspectors in Europe. refuting the existence of con tagious pleuro-pneumonia claimed by lritish inspectors to have been found in a few cases among American cattle. eekly Bank Statemenout.

NO PARDON FOR MRS. MAIYBRICK. The British Goveranmut's Reply to a P tltlea for Her Release. WASatioox, Nov. SO.-The eas of Mrs. Maibrick. the young American women con fined in Waking prison on a life sentenee for the murder of her husband, near Liver pool, several years aao, is the subject of re newed agitation, Gall Hamilton, the well known writer, has taken a deep interest in the case, and it was la Rely through her efforts that a petition was sent to Queen Victoria asking that the unfortunate woman be pardoned and released from prison. The petition was based on the as sertion that no proof was adduced on the trial of Mrs. Maybriok to connect her with the crime charged and, further, that the commission of the crime itself was not proved. In support of these assertions Commislsioner Addison, the leading lawyer for the prosecution, was quoted as persist ing in saving up to the last moment, even after the judge's summing up, "that the jury could not, especially in view of the medical evidence, find a verdict of guilty." This petition was signed by Mrs. Harr sou, the wives of the members of the cab inet, ineluding Mrs. Blaine, and many prominent ladies all over the country. It was forwarded to England, and ultimately found its way to the office of the home see retary. The petition received a semi-official character by being forwarded through the state department and the United States legation in London, and the response to it was communicated direct to this govern ment by the British officials. This reply, which has not been made public, is re ported to be exceedingly caustic in its terms, so much so in fact as to cause Gall Hamilton, in her last letter on the subject, to refer to it as "senseless, vulgar and bru tal insolence toward a friendly republican nation pleading for its own citizens." The response is said to characterize the petS-, tion as the most impudent paper that ever found its way to the oflice of the home see.. retary and wholly unprecedented. Importunities are still made at the state department to interest itself in Mrs. May brick's behalf, but it is probable that fur ther efforts in this direction will be con fined to individuals and be of an unofficial character.

The Flathead valley, ten years ago an almost unknown region, the home of Ihe savage and wild beast, to-day is the most productive section of the north. west, yielding per acre double the out. put of Kansas, Iowa cr the Dakotas, and is the only section west of the Miss. issippi river which can rival the c lo bra el Red River Valley of the North in tie superior quality of its cereals. It is the only agricultural section in the state o' Montana, whore crops can beo r tiscd w ithout irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds ire grown ii abundance, while apples, plums, peaches, cherries, pears, and the small fruits such as strawber ries, blackberries, goosebe. ries, raspber ries are being raised successfully. With a ready market for all products of the soil in the rich mineral di tricts to the east, west a d south, the farmers of th Flathead valley will s,,on be classed among the wealthiest and most influen tailof thisnew countr . Wheat averages thirty-five bushels per acre, oats sixty bushels, barley forty bushel-, rye thirty bushels, potatoes 400 bush_ s, cabbige ten tons per acre, rutabagas thirty tons per acre. The Flathead river, with its tribu taries -tie North, South and Middle forks--the Stillwater and Whitefish rivers, with their numerous braucheo, making a total of over cOJ miles of lo; gina streams, a!l of which converge at Kalispell, flow through vast forests of pine, tamarack, tir, larch anld ce h.r. Under the recent law enacted by oon gress these boundless tracts of timber land can le purchased at $2.50 per acre. According to the state aud tor's report, of the 103,489,283 feet of lumber cawed in the ht te during the year 1891, 100, 00.000o was sawed in M saoula county, thus demonstrating this portion of the state's sul reauacy in the lumber in dustry. In the northern porti,,n of the valley are hidden vast mnoastrcs of a superior quality of coal towards wi.ch the rail roade are alre; dy building, and the de velol meat of this resource alone w11 renCer this section :he Pitt buag of the northwest. Adjoinin, thl se iumlm.nss bodies of coal lie large traits of oil land, which gve promis o of equa'ing the rich Setaoleum lields of Pennsylvania. Natlral gar has also been discovered in this region.
