A FUNERAL DAY Too Short for Undertakers of Chicago THE DEAD LIE UNBURIED The Long List Lengthened by Another Death, MaKinrf the Total 588 Foor More Bodies of Victims of the Fire Have Been Identified. Chicago, Jan. 3. Today was a day of funerals in Chicago, and yet many were unable to bury their dead. The unprecedented demand for hearses and carriages would have been enough In Itself to task to the very utmost the resources of the undertakers, but the heavy snow that has fallen during the last two days has increased their dif ficulties enormously. Arrangements were made by the un dertakers to have as many funerals as possible helil in the early part of the day, in order to allow the use of the hearses for Other funerals in the after noon. In many instances families who waited for the return of the hearses were disappointed, and were compelled to ilefer the burial of their loved ones. It is expected that by tomorrow the streets will be in such a condition as to permit the passage of funerals in al most ordinary time. The list of dead was increased tJ f.88 today, by the death of Leroy Rain bolt, a boy of four years, who was severely burned. Of the ten bodies at the county morgue, foitr were identified today. They were: MRS. MARY A. FAIR. SADIE LUDWIO. DOROTHY LEMEXAGER, 12 years old. EMMA REYNOLDS, 7 years old. The injured of whom there is any record, now number 103, although many of those who were hurt slightly would swell this number . greatly. Numbers of pecple went to their homes after the fire without reporting them selves to the police as injured. PANIC AT A FUNERAL. The People Feared Visitation by Another Horror. Chicago, Jan. 3. A serious panic occurred this afternoon at the funeral of Miss Carrie Eayres, one at- the vic tims of the fire. The services were in progress in the South Chicago Congregational church, in the suburb of South Chicago and the building was filled. A re broke out three doors from the church and the first intimation of it was convoyed to the people in tho church by the cry of -Fire" in the street. Many rushed for tho doors. Two polke.nen stationed in tae church ailed out to the people that there ivas no danger and urged them to resume their scats. Their advice was not heeded, however. The pall bearers went to the side of the casket and Ptood in readiness to remove it, and the family of the dead girl prepared o leave. Suddenly a cloud of smoke came In through an open window and the sight and smelly maddened the peo ple. The two officers had barely time to swing the doors opened when the rush came. This was all that saved a severe crush, and probably the loss of life as the crowd plnnged through the doorways. When the street was reach ed and t was seen that there was no 'ausc for alarm, the greater part of the people returned to the church and the services were finished. Nobody was injured.

Feeders gained along with fat st?ers, but stackers did not change. Receluts of cattle and calves at Kan sas City for the year 1903 will amount to 2,131,000 head. This number has been surpassed only once before, which was in the year 1!I02. The yards were en tirely closed for the first thirteen days : of June last year, and not much busi ! nes was done the balance of the month, otherwise this would probably have been the banner year in cattle receipts at Kansas City. Sheep receipts have been at low ebb the past week, but the year 1W3 will Just about equal 1902, the total of each year being 1,135.000 head. Had it not been that he yards at Kansas -City were practically out of business during the month of June last year, on ac count of the flood, it would have been much the largest year on record at these yards in sheep receipts.

SATISFACTORY YEAR Growth in the Exports of Manufactures The Total Commerce for the Year Ex ceeds That of any Previous Year in the Country's History. Washington, Jan. 3. Details of the eleven month's' commerce of the year 1903 are just made public by the de paitmtnt of commerce and labor through its bureau of statistics. They show an increase in practically all of the great groups into which the bu reau of statistics divides the exports and in all cf the groups "into which it divides the imports. Agricultural products, as i whole, show an increase of 74 million dollars; products jof the forest, 10 millions; products of the mini's, 8 millions; manufactures, 5 mil lions, and miscellaneous articles, 2 mil lions. In the single group, fisheries, is shown a slight decrease of a little more than $1,000,000. The figures for the month of No vember show a marked growth in ex orts cf manufactures, the total for the month being $3493,639, against $30,ni3,512 in November of last year. Agricultural products, also, show a marked increase for the month, the fig ures for November, 13. being $114. 172.255. against $$3,035,850 in the same month of last year. The increase in agricultural exports occurs chiefly in cotton, of which the value of the month's exports is unusually high. The increase In exports of manufact ures Is distributed through many ar ticles, but does nor occur, as hadbeen expected, in Hon and steel. Discus sions in trade circles and in the press during the past few weeks have pre dicted a revival in the export trade of iron and steel manufactures, but the November figures of exports of this class of merchandise do not justify this prediction. The total value of iron and steel manufactures exported in November, 1903, was $7,9SS,415, against $8,119,924 in November of 1002, $S.1S0. 133 in November. 1901. and $10,112,721 in November 1900. For the eleven months ending with November the total ex ports cf iron and steel manufactures are SS9.685.201 in value, against $90,136, 124 in the corresponding months of 1902, and $94.112.7S2 in the corresponding mcnths of 1901. Notwithstanding the slight decrease in exports of iron and steel, the total of all manufactures ex ported during the eleven months end ing with November, 1903, is $3S2,7C8, 127. against $377,755,576 in the corres ponding months of last year. Imports for the month show a de crease of over $8,000,000 compared with November of the preceding year. Tnis decrease is divided between manufact urers' materials, food stuffs, and the group designated as "rrticles of vol untary use, luxuries, etc." The largest decrease occurs in the group "articles wholly or partially manufactured for use In manufacturing," the reduction in this d.iss being about $3,000,000, as compared with the corresponding month of th" preceding year. This re duction occurs largely in iron and steel, of which the importations for the month are less than half those of the corresponding month of last year, the figures for November, 1903, being $2,309,233, against $4.'.79,093 in No vember, 1902. For the eleven months ending with November articles wholly or partially manufactured for use In manufacturing show an increase cf $15,000,000 over the corresponding months of last year, while articles in a crude condition for use in manufact uring show an increase of $11,000,000 in 19C3, as compared with the correspond ing months of 1902. Summarizing the story told by the figures for the month of November and the eleven months ending with Novem ber, it may be said that they indicate a growth of exports of manufactures, but that the expected increase in ex ports of iron and steel manufactures has not developed. Imports. cf iron and stool manufactures, however, show a decrease in November, lf03, as compar ed with November, 1902, though for the entire eleven months the figures of Iron and steel imports are slightly in excess cf those of last year. Importations of other manufacturers' materials also show a. slight decrease in November as compared with November of last year, but a marked increase when the eleven months ending with November ure considered in comparison with the corresponding months of last' year. These figures of the commerce of the eleven months would seem to indicate that the total commerce of the United States during the year about to end will be greater than in any preceding year, but that the total experts will fall a few millions below those of 1900 and be about equal to those of 1901, while the total imrerts win exceed those cf any preceding year, and com bined with the exports make tho grand total of commerce more than in any 1 earlier year; also that tho exports of j manufactures will exceed those of 3902 by several millions, but be somewhat , below those cf the record year 1900, and perhaps 1901. IN A GENERATION What Ihe'Country Has Done In Thirty-three Years WEALTH HAS TREBLED The Opportunities for Further Growth Have Increased in Greater Propor tionThere Has Been in the Same Time a Decrease of Country's Debt. Washington, D. C. Jan. 3.

The per capita wealth is set down at $1,235 in 1900 and $307 in 1S"0, having ithus more than quadrupled meantime'.
