COMMERCE OR THE LAKES
Navigation for the Season About to
Be Opened.
TrnlKe AYHJiimt Precedent Predicted
tor the AtproncliIiiKT Period of In
terior Trntle Operiiiions FnctH mill
FlKiirfH Presented by the llu-r-nu
of MutlNtifH of the Treasury.
No feature of the commerce of the Unit
ed Slates, whether domestic or foreigu,
shows a more wonderful development than
that carried upon the Great Lakes where
navigation is about to resume for the sea
ion of lS0i. A growth in our foreign com
merce from .na billion dollars in 1S72 to
two billion dollars in 1900 is remarkable,
and an increase of our exports from $444,
000,000 in 1S02 to $1,227,000,000 Jn lSf'9 is
even inoro striking, but this growth is in
significant when compared with the growth
of commerce on the Great Lakes at meas
ured by the few available measuring rods
which the present rather unsatisfactory
btatii-lical system furnishes. Yet the fact
that navigation on the Lakes Is about to
open and that the greatest "season" ever
known is confidently predicted by those f.i
miliar with the traffic there makes some
facts which the Treasury Bureau of Statis
tics has just presented in oneof its month
ly publications especially interesting.
The single point at which accurate sta
tistical statements have been kept during
a considerable term of years is at St
Mary's Falls Canal, which connects Lake
Superior with Michigan, Huron, Erie, and
Ontaiio; and by a study of these figures it
is practicable to compare in some degree
the growth of internal commerce on the
Great Lakes with that or our foreign com
merce. As already indicated, the foreign
commerce of the United States has doubled
eince 1S72 and the exports have trebled
during that period.- During the same time
the tonnage of essels engaged in com
merce passing through the St. Mary's Falls
canal increased from 014. 7"5 registered tons
in 1S72 to l'l.lCS.r.17 tons in ISO'J, the in
crease having been over 2.000 per cent, as
against an increase of 100 per cent in total
foreign commerce and 200 per cent in ex
ports. The great articles rntciing into the
commerce ou the lakes are wheat, flour,
and other grains; coal, iron, and lumber.
Tlie statements of the quantities of these
articles passing through the Soo Canal
illustrates the growing uliliation of this
great water route for transportation of
these articles so readily transported in
bulk. In 1S71 the number of bushels of
wheat passing through the canal was 1.
37C.703, while in 1SW the number of bush
els W36 r!.3!7,.".'!ri, or more than forty
times as much as in 1S71. Meantime the
receipts of wheat ;t Buffalo increased
from 14.000 000 Impels in 1S72 to S3.000.000
in 1SHS. while the total receipts of rain
of all kinds (including wheat in the form
of flour), received at Buffalo by lake in
creased from 02.000.000 bushels in. 1S72 to
67.000,000 bushels m 1S9S. Meanwhile the
exportation of wheat and wheat Hour in
creased from S9.000.O00 bushels in 1S72 to
222.000.000 bushels in 1S99. the increase
in transportation by lake thus being much
greater proportionately than the increase
iu exports from the seaboard. Transpor
tation of Hour through the Soo Canal has
increased with even greater rapidity,
growing from 130.411 l.arrels in 1S72 to 7,
114,147 barrels in 1819. while grain other
than wheat inert ased from 44;.774 bushels
in 1S72 to .'SU.OOU.UOO bushels in U99. I
In metals and minerals the grawti of
transportation on the lakes 1? quite as .

Collector of Taxes is to Issiie t,h(? certifi
cate of sale after "the closenJfthe sa.r,
and if the property is not -redeemed
"Within two years from the Jast day of
the st-le," the deed is to be j$lven.
The Attorney, therefore, decides that
"property sold for taxes un'crthe act of
February 28, 1?P8, may be re'Ieenied from
such sale within two years from the last
day of the tax sale, and tlMc the period
of redemption thereof is not limited to
two years from the day of the actual sale
of the particular property which it is de
sired to redeem. V
SIEGE GAHDENS ANE XROPS.
Froth CKctnlilcN for IlelenKiiered
(nrriHoiiH n I'iihhiIiII ll y.
(Prom the Spectator.)
Great though the sufferings of the Lady
smith garrison were from want of meat
and good bread, the lack of vegetables to
ward the end of the siege and blockade
had even worse results. If the scarcity
of any green vegetables, and later of
vegetables of any sort, did not cause an
outbreak of scurvy among the whites
the Katilrs are said to hae suffered from
it severely it had the worst effect on
the general health of the garrison and
people, and the waul of, carrots, onion?,
turnips, and other pot herbs for making
eoup aggravated the nastiness and un
palatable nature of the food which was
available. After some four months of
siege the only vegetables left were a few
potatoes and tinned tomatoes, and the
craving for these was such that they
were sold at 12 shillings a pound and a
sovereign a tin. The bulk of the garrison
hlmply had no fresh vegetable food at all,
and suffered accordingly. The state, of,
Kimberley was not much better, and it
would be difficult to point to a single pro
tracted siege in recent times in which the
stock of fresh vegetable food had not been
exhausted Jong before relief or capitula
tion.
Even Colonel Ward, "the test commis
sariat oflicer since Moses," could r.ot Le
expected to lay in stocks of fresh vegeta
bles, for the simple reason that, except
potatoes and a few other tubers, they will
not keep fresh. But modern conditions of
war, which adds to much to the power of
the defensive force, a!o make it possible
that in very many positions the garrl on
should be largely telf-sufctuiiilng in re
gard to vegetable food, and in some decree
in the supplx of whe.it and cats. The Idea
is not new, for when General Phiilppln
Usucceeded to the command of Badajoz,
though in a cold and bleak country, he in
fctnntl sowed down all the ground outside
the ramparts, to far as it was commanded
by his guns, with spring wheat, on the
chance that he might reap a crop which
would take at least five months to gro
and ripen.
This was outside the close ramparts of
an old fashioned fortress, with' out worl-s

Siege farming will be managed on differ
ent principles from ordinary agriculture,
and will need special study and special
seeds and plants. The object of the ordin
ary farmer or market gardener is to grow
as much as will pay. not as much as the
ground will carry. He might, by heay
manurirg and intensHe cultivation, in
crease his crop by a half, but if it cost
him twice as much to do eo he would be
content to grow less at less cost. In the

REDEMPTION OF TAX SALES.
The Opinion of Attorney Duvnll on
Hie Tro-Yenr Limit.
K. G. Davis, Tax Collector for the Dis
trict, recently addressed a request to the
Commissioners for an official construction
of the law regarding the expiration of the
time limit allowed for the redemption of
properly from tax sale. The Tax Collector
confesses that he is in doubt whether the
"two years" allowed by law should date
from the actual day of sale or from the
closing day of the sale.
Mr. Davis states that tho custom of his
office has been to count from the actual
day of sale that is, from the day the prop
erty is bid off; but, he says, the claim has
been recently raised that owners of prop
erty should have two years from the last
day of the sale in which to redeem.
The question having been referred to the
Attorney for the District for an opinion,
Mr. Duvall has reported to the Commis
sioners. He cites the act of Congress "in
relation lo taxes and tax sales in the
District of Columbia" which provides:
"Immediately after the close of the sale,
upon payment of the purchase money, the
Collector of Taxes shall issue to the pur
chaser a certificate of sale, and if the
property shall not be redeemed by the
owner or owners thereof within two years
from the last day of sale by payment to
the Collector of Taxes of said District, for
the -UEe of the legal holder of the certifi
cate, the amount for which it was sold at
such sale and 15 per cent per annum
thereon, a deed shall be given by the Com
missioners," etc.
Attorney Duvall observes that the act
of Congress distinctly provides that the
porting. In any case this simple provision
of useful food would greatly mitigate the
sufferings of the defenders in a protracted
blockade extending through the autumn,
and even in winter the platnting of suit
able crops would be of inestimable service.

Spring Fever
During the winter, extra work is thrown
upon the various organs of the body.
Spring makes this manlfeat. The appe
tite becomes poor, sleep restless, bowels
constipated; sometimes there is dyspep
sia, liver or kidney troubles. Life seems
not worth living. This Is the time to take
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. It is better
than any other spring tonic in the world.
It refreshes, strengthens, rebuilds. A
