I should at once be taken out of the iriard 1

"We know from the reports of competent
officers and' from, per bo no! observation
that the army is unable-to move to
the interior, and ihad there are no facilities
for such. a move If attempted-, and
that it couidi not be attempted until loo
late. Moreover, the best medical authorities
of the island say that with our |
pretterJi equipment' we could not live in j

without louses from malarial fever, '
which is ai?most as deadly as yellow fever.
"This army must be moved- at once or
perish. As the army can be safely moved

WASHINGTON, D. C? August 4.Whlie
our wonderful export trade In
the fiscal year Just ewled has attracted
much attention, the moat Intercatlns
and really wonderful feature of It has
been. In some degree at least, pvertooked.
While our exportatlona%f agricultural
prodocts during the year have
surpassed In value those of any preccilin?
t-ear in the history of the country.
the exportation of aunofactures 1?.
when considered In detail, equally interesting
in it* bearing upon the general
commerce and prosperity, both
present and futilre, of the nation.
The exportation of domestic manufactures
in the fiscal year 1898 Is set down
by the records of the bvreau of statistics
of the treasury department at
$288,871,449, which Is nearly twelve millions
of dollars greater than any preceding
year In the history of the country.
This Is especially Interesting in
view of the fact that the imports of
manufactures during the year were abnormally
small. In addition to this it Is
r??onable to support that the pur?
. . _ r..Vit- ?h> r\Ann1r

of this country in the prosperous year
just ended were unusually great, both
by reaxon of the Increased earnings
and the further fact that during several
preceding rears their purchases In
these lines had. because of the financial
depression, been light.
For these two reasons, the smallness
of importations of manufactures and
the probable Increased consumption of
manufactures by otir own people, It Is
apparent thai the home demand upon
our own manufacturers was unusually
great, thus reducing, to some extent,
the attention which they had formerly
been able to give to an Invasion of foreign
markets. In addition to this, it
had been feared by some <hat the increased
customs rates adopted a year
ago would result In ? reduction of the
purchases of our goods by citizens of
other nations, but this expectation was
not realized.
In view of these facts the large expor*-4i?
In 4h? VMr 1 lint j
ended is, to say the Least, a very notable
feature of the commerce of this remarkable
year. The total exportation
of manufacture* for the year is more
than double that of a decade ago, almost
three times as much as that of
1SS0, more than four times as much as
lit 1S70, and *even.times aa much as In
1880. -Hon* much the centennial exhlbl-j
tion had to do wkh awakening a taste;
throughout'the world for our manufactures
and products tvhich were there
exhibited would be difficult to say. but
It is an Interesting fact, at least, that In
that year (1876) the exportation of manufactures
far the first time touched the
one hundred million dollar line and
since that time has pone steadily for-!
ward until In 1898 It reached (288,871.449.
What are the manufactured articles
which we have so freely exported, and
who have been their purchasers? To
answer these iu detail would occupy
much space for they Include almost every
variety of article that could be Imagined
and go to every part of the

of the fiscal year 1893 were

and South America. British East In- |

while the great grain fields of Russia I
also drew largely upon our manufacturers
In this line. Our cars for street
and steam railways went to all parts of
Europe, China, Japan and the East Indies,
to Braxil, to Cuba, to Central
America, Hawaii, JKexlco and Africa, j
the value of this class of exportatlons I
for the year amounting * to 18,424,419.
Our cotton goods went to every part of I
the world, China, British North Amerl- |
