Year's Operations of Secretary Wil
son's Branch.
Detailed Review of the Work of For
est Management—Watching
Food Product*.
Washington, Nov. 26.—James Wilson,
secretary of agriculture, has made public
his aunual report. He deals with the
weather bureau first of all and tells how
the service has been extended and how it
will be extended still farther by the rural
free delivery.
As to animal industry, he says the value
of animals and animal products exported
last year was $225,000,000. The bureau
inspected for export 885,000 cattle, 228,000
Bheep end 48,000 horses and mules, and
nearly 1,000 vessels carrying livestock.
Imported animals were also inspected to
the number of 342,000 and. where neces
sary, quarantined.
Nearly 37,000,000 animals were inspected
for slaughter. The secretary suggests it
might be well to prohibit the Importation
of cattle.
An extensive review of the work of soil
•urvey ahows that the areas surveyed and
mapped during the year exceeded 3,500,000
acreg, making a total of nearly 6,000,000
acres surveyed during the past two years.
Referring to the reclamation of alkali
lands, to which attention has frequently
been called in the reports of the soil
eurvey, the secretary says that he is more
and more convinced that to carry the
lesson home to the individual it will be
necessary for the department itself to
undertake a practical demonstration of
the efficiency of drainage The necessity
of a special study of climatology in con
nection with the soil work is pointed out.
Food Products.
In the bureau of chemistry Investiga
tions into the composition, nutritive value
and adulteration of food products have
been continued. This work during the
year was devoted particularly to the study
of preserved meats, the composition and
nutritive value of the preserved article
being compared with the original and the
preservatives, if any were employed, de
In cooperation with the office of public
road Inquiries, a laboratory for the study
of road materials has been organized in
the bureau of chemistry. The prime
object of this laboratory is to aid road
builders in selecting the best available
materials in their localities.
The work of forest management is re
viewed in some detail. During the year
nearly 800,000 acres under private owners
were examined by representatives of the
bureau and four detailed working plans,
covering 226.000 acres, were prepared. The
working plan for the Black Hills forest
reserve was completed and working plans
were undertaken for the Prescott and Big
Horn aud the Priest River reserves.
Tbe secretary reports as the result of a
broad inquiry made through the office of
experiment stations that by far the larg
est part of the work of the stations has
direct relation to the Important agricul
tural interests of the communities in
which they are located. Stations are
located all the way from Alaska to Porto
Rico and Hawaii.
An Increase in college extension work
in agriculture is noted and stress is laid
on the movement for the establishment
of secondary schools of agriculture and
the introduction of the elements of agri
culture into the rural schools, as hopeful
signs of progress in agricultural educa
He reviews very fully the great develop
ment in the work of farmers' Institutes.
In 1899 over 2,000 farmers 1 Institutes were
held in this country, attended by ov r
half a million farmers. These were heid
In 43 states and territories.
The secretary expresses the belief that
Irrigation will, in the near future, become
a subject for legislation by congress, there
being important reagons why it should
have the attention of that body. At the
same time, he says that those best In
formed believe that the uncertain charac
ter of water rights can only be remedied
by a larger measure of public control and
the making of certain classes of irriga
tion structures permanently public works.
He winds up the subject by presenting
the following conclusions:
That private enterprise will have to be
suuplemented by public aid in the con
struction of certain classes of Irrigation
works if we are to secure the largest de
velopment of western agriculture.
That reservoirs located in the channels
of ruining streams should be public
That the first step toward national aid
for irrigation should be the passage of
enlightened codes of water laws by the
Btates to be benefited.
That the land laws should be modified
by repealing the desert act and by requir
ing cultivation as well as residence on a
That the non-lrrlgable grazing lands
should be leased in small tracts, so as
to unite the irrigable and the pasture
In establishing an office of public road
Inquiries, the object was to promote the
improvement of public roads throughout
the country. Efforts were first directed
to ascertain the condition of the roads,
the state of public opinion in regard to
their improvement, the obstacles in the
way, and the best methods to be employed
In securing better roads —such has been
the work of this office up to the present.
For spreading information and awaken
ing interest, nothing has been found so
The Race
Does not depend on the start but on the
finish. It'a staying power which carries
many a runner to victory. It's like that
in business. Many a man starts off in
the race for business success with a
burst of speed which seems to assure
victory. Presently be begins to falter
and at last he falls and fails. The cause ?
Generally "stomach trouble." No man
is stronger than his stomach. Business
haste leads to careless and irregular eat
ing. The stomach and other organs of
digestion and nutrition become diseased.
The body is inadequately nourished and
•o grows weak.
Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Discovery
cures diseases of the stomach and other
organs of digestion aud nutrition. It
strengthens the stomach and so strength
ens the whole body which depends on
the stomach for the nourishment from
which strength is made.
There is no alcohol in " Golden Medical
Discovery," and it is entirely free from
opium, cocaine and all other narcotics.
Accept no substitute for the " Discov
try." There is no medicine "just as
SW/&" for diseases of the stomach and
/led organs.
"Your 'Golden Medical Discovery' has per
formed a Wonderful cure," writes Mr. M. H.
Home, of Charleston, Franklin Co., Ark. "I
had the worst ca»e of dyspepsia, the doctors
gay, that they ever saw. After trying seven
doctors and everything I could hear of, with no
benefit, I tried Dr. Pierces Golden Medical Dis
covery, and now I mtn cured."
Dr. Pierces Pleasant Pellets cure
effectual as the "object lesson" or sample
roads which, during the past year, have
been built in nine states under the advice
and supervision of the office. In building
these sample roads, machines have been
loaned by manufacturers and carried free
by the railroad companies, while the local
community furnishes material and labor.
During the year, for the better carrying
out of the work of the office, the United
States was divided into four division, the
eastern, middle, western and southern,
each under a special agent.

Aniilnsl Senator A. B.
Special to The Journal.
Armour, S. D., Nov. 26.—.Douglas county
will in all probability have a candidate
for United States senator in the coming
senatorial contest, less than a year away, j
It is a little early yet to make the an
nouncement officially, but strings are be
ing pulled with that end in view. The
man from here who would like to succeed
A. B. Klttredge in the senate, in case the
democrats secure the legislature, is none
other than E. S. Johnson. He is perhaps
the wealthiest banker in the state and j !
would have been the nominee for congress ' i
on the fusion ticket a year ago had the '
democrats succeeded in prevailing upon '
the populists to award them a congress- \
man on the ticket in place of "God-of- i
Battles" Moore of the Black Hills. '
Mr. Johnson is making frequent pil- \
grimages over the suite, and is a very !
nice gentleman to meet. He is sure to 1
make friends wherever he goes, and hay- i:
ing a very deep antipathy toward Kitt- i
redge he would not leave a stone un- \\
turned to defeat him. ,
Mr. Johnson asserts that Mr. Kittredge !'
played double with him on the postoffice '
fight four years ago and he has not for- j
gotten it. (
Chief Obstacle in the Way of One- 1
Cent Letter Pottage.
Washington, Nov. 26.—Third Assistant!!
Postmaster General Edwin Madden in hisji
annual report recommends the consollda- '
tion of third and fourth-class mail mat- (
ter; an increase of the limit of indemnity i]
for the loss of registered matter from $10 1 1
to $100, and that the postal employes be!<
made liable for the value of registered >(
matter lost through their carelessness. •]
The total postal revenues for the year ! <
from all sources were $111,631,194, being <
$3,923,727 less than the expenditures. This:'
is exclusive of the cost of transportation!
of the mails over the subsridizezd Pacific i<
railroads that have not yet settled their j<
bonded accounts with the government.
The total value of stamped paper and'!
stamp books issued during the year was 1
$104,785,987. <
Toe issue of postage stamp books is re- !
garded as a successful experiment. The'!
4,6ii5,423 stamp books issued have cost the I <
department $4.69 a thousand to manufac- '
ture. '
There were 659,614,800 postal cards is- !
sued. The amount of second-class matter ■]
mailed free of postage to actual subscrib- l*
ers within the county of publication con-!]
stitutes practically 7 per cent of the en- I!
tire amount mailed. \\
Mr. Madden says it is but a question '
of time, if the rate of increase of second- :
class matter continues, before it will con- ;
sume most, if not all, of the revenue de- •
riv?d from other classes of mail matter. ',
The hope is expressed that the next an- \
nual report will show the second-class of <
mall practically free from at least the (
larger abuses. This reformation, the re- \
port says, may make 1-cent postage prac- (
ticable at no distant date. ■
Action in Mexico That Has an Im- '
port ant Bearing for Us. I
San Francisco, Nov. 26. —According to 1
the Mexican Parliamentary Chronicle, the 11
minister of public works and coloniza- \
tion of Mexrco has recommended for pas- [<
sage by the congress of his country a ; i
measure which has an important bearing '
on the Chinese immigration question. It ' \
is a bill granting a concession to M. P. ji
Tarpey, John E. Bennett or any com-M
pany they may form, giving them the en- j
tire fishing privileges of the Mexican ; (
coast on the Pacific ocean, contingent on 1
their building and operating a steamship '
line between Mexico and China and an- j
other line for coast trade. Tho company 1
is to be free from taxation of any kind 1
and is to be allowed to land passengers '. [
anywhere on the Mexican coast, which Is t,
more than l.OOOmiles in extent. InJanuary |<
of this year Mr. Tarpey,a well-known pol- j1
itician.was president of the Pacific Charter !j
company that claimed to have secured 1
concessions from the Mexican govern--i
ment to establish steamship lines between '
Mexico and China for the purpose of col- i]
onizing the Mexican republic with 1,000,- 11
000 coolie laborers, many of whom it was '
feared might cross into th£ United States, j!
John E. Bennett is the attorney fori,
the Chinese consulate in this city, and it 1
is pointed out that the concessions which '
the Mexican congress is asked to grant |
to him and his associates are similar to'i
those the Pacific Charter company, of <
which the same men were the organizers, (
claimed to have received nearly a year ,
ago. j 1

South Dakota A. O. I. W. Will Re
fuse to Pay State Tax.
Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., Nov. 26.—The A. O. U. W.
lodge has notified the state insurance de
partment that it will fight the attempt on,
the part of the department to collect
stat? taxea^j^ich are claimed as due for
several years"past. The amount involved
is between $12,000 and $15,000, and the
lodge does not believe the provisions of
the law applies to that order. The only
other order with any great amount due is
the Modern W Toodmen, which has not yet
declared what position it will take. That
lodge is in a different position from the
A. O. U. W., as the head office is in an
other state, while the head office of the
Workmen is in South Dakota.
Rev. Alfred 10. Peterson of Minneap
olis Accepts an Invitation.
Special to The Journal.
Crookston, Minn., Nov. 26.—The First
Baptist church of this city has extended
a call to Rev. Alfred E. Peterson of Min
neapolis to be its pastor and the call has
been accepted. Mr. Peterson has filled the
pulpit two Sabfbaths. He has been as
sistant to Rev. W. B. Riley of the First
Baptist church in Minneapolis, and comes
hiehly recommended. t

Knox have had several conferences, and
