WHY JAPAN WILL EXHIBIT The trade between Japan and th United States is growing to such pro portions that neither country can af ford to have the commerce of the twe nations Interrupted. The United States is now sending to Japan, and teritory under the Japanese flag, nearly $60,000,000 In goods a year, and, in return, this country Is buying from Japan yearly over $91.000.u00 In silks, tern, mattings, straw braids, rice and chlnaware. We do more export business with Japan than with all other parts of Raw cotton Is the largest single Item In the exports to Japan, though manufactures as a whole show a lar ger total than that of the single Horn of cotton. The value of raw cotton exported to Japan in 1913 was $25, 000,000 Flour exported to Japan also 6hows a marked Increase in 1913, be- lng 3 1-3 million dollars against 2 3-4 million in 1912, and 1 3-4 million In 1811 Products of Iron and 6teel are the most Important of the manufac tures exported to that country , pipes and fittings in 1913 being 1 2-3 mil lion dollars, sheets and plates, 1 1-3 million, locomotives, 1 1-3 million; rails for railways. 1 1-4 millon; struc- i tural iron and steel, over half a mil j lion. Nails and spikes, over 1400,000; I railway cars. $150,000, and tin plates. approximately $100,000. Other manu factures sent to that country' include illuminating oil, 4 1-2 million dollar value, lubricating oil. over half a million; sole leather, over half a mil lion; fertilizer, nearly a half million; and numerous other articles In small er sums. This explalnt why Japan, notwith standing the disagreement over the California alien act, has appropriat ed a large sum of money for an ex hibit at the world's fair in San Fran cisco. The United States is one of Japan's most inviting fields of com mercial exploitation, and the subjects l of the mikado would have injured themselves most by an open break with this country, ii oo I LETTER "S" SPELLS SUICIDE. Not today or tomorrow, but even tually, Pegoud, the French aviator who describes a letter "S' as he moves through the air, will fall to earth to rise no more. The daring Frenchman causes his aeroplane to turn a somersault He haB given two exhibitions before ad miring spectators HLs machine has worked perfectly and as a result he has been able to demonstrate wonder ful control. Some dav the ga will escape and take fire or the planes will not respond, or the engine will fail to work, and then a requiem will be said over Pegoud. Aviation Is a sport more dangerou" than feeple cllmblnc or motorcycle racing. Of all the earlier experts, not one Is alive tndav. except those who have ahandonpd the fieM to give in structions The fatalities are so nu merous that only the most skilled of aviator? should be allowed to make flights at danpornits heights Avlatnrs for the army are evpprtd I to take risks, a their calling is pre sumed to be hazardous, and In that 'ne line of usefulness there Is hut little objection to be made to the dan cers to be faced, but otherwise, the men of the air should be held in re straint, as operating an aeroplane is a suicidal pastime. oo - ' THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK ENCOURAGING , Corn and cotton have been dam aged by unfavorable weather and the next government report is expected to 6how a big deterioration in the I crop reports, but, taking crop Injuries at their worst, no calamity has oc curred, only disappointment in early ' hope6. That is the opinion of Henry Clews i who. in his bank letter, says: "Two effects will be. to bring bet ter prices for these staples to grow- ers in other sections and to lesson the demand for money to move crop I In the Injured districts; also a smal- ler traffic for the railroads." Even tariff changes are not viewed with alarm by Clews, who, while ad mitting that the most important in fluence In our foreign trade for th ' next few months will be the tariff, concludes: "Our manufacturers have ben en ergetically adjusting themselves to I the new condition; so much so, in facL that foreign manufacturers 6how little enthusiasm over our tariff changes and do not expect to gain any permanent foothold for their i wares in this market. On the con trary many of them, as they see our manufacturer vigorously adjusting themselves to the lower schedules, fear that before long they will be j obliged to meet a keener American i competition In foreign markets A I few interests may be injured by ex I treme cuts, but these will be ln j finltesimal compared with those af ' fected by the stimulus to trade which will follow and which will gratify many thus far not heard from Amer ican skill and enterprise will surely j give a first class account of Itself in the long run. and tariff scares may now as well be eliminated In busi ness calculations of the future. "The financial undertone 6hows steady Improvement. In this, as In all the foreign markets, monetary im provement Is steadily progressing, i Business Is consequently improving, land a decidedly better inestment de mand i6 springing up. which Is quite as much In evidence in the foreign markets as it has been here.

The children who went visiting Sun day and later could not be found, but finally were traced to the home of a relative in Slatervllle. might have met with misfortune. Youngsters, ten years and younger, are not old enough to be allowed to tramp over the coun try without older escorts. The three little girls were In danger every mo ment of their long tramp Into the country and not the least of their dan ger was the possibility of meetlnR with perverts on the traveled hlghwpy where vagabonds are found. Parents cannot exercise too much Ucllance in guiding the footsteps of their little ones The hours of watch fulness bring their recompensing ben efits During the Impressionable age. the young people are in need of strict discipline and ever-present guardian ship They must be taught not to leave home without permission. And. when permission is granted, the) should be accompanied by some older person of responsibility. There would be fewer lost children, If this rule were enforced oo THE HEAVY DROP IN EXPRESS PROFITS. The business of the big express com panies has been hit hard by the par rels post and the action of the Inter Jtatfl commerce commission in reduc ing express rates from 15 to 30 per cent The heavy drop in the market quo tations of the stocks of the big ex press companies is evidence of the lessening profits. Three years ago Adams Express stock was quoted at 270 Today It Is selling at $13f The American, selling at $320 in 1910. Is today down to $115 Wells-Fargo, val ued at $199. Is quoted at $91. United States Express, selling at $145 In L910, lias slumped to $49 a share No doubt the express companies will continue to make good profits, but the exorbitant profit has been eliminated. The parcels post is re sponsible for this most beneficial change, but it required thirty years of constant agitation to bring that service to the postofflce department, and the victory was achieved only af ter much that was vicious and cor rupt in our national politics had been overcome For twenty years the head of one of these great monopolies wa6 a senator and political leader In New York state and a dictator of na tional Republican politics and poli cies. Under old political conditions, it was possible for that condition to pjp vail, but today the people have their eyes open to the trickery of the po litical machines and more is being de manded of the politician and the of ficeholder. .oo IDAHO ASSESSMENT EXCEEDS $400,000,000 Boise.

In connection with the discovery federal officials said that a warrant would be Issued for he arrest of the ship's officer In whose department the opium was discovered. The officials suld today that confessions laying bare the methods of opium smugglers who have operated In San Francisco for months had been obtained from three of the fifteen customs guards now under arrest charged with the: conspiracy to Invade customs law and It was stated these three would bo sent before the federal grand jury. According to the confessions of the three, caches for the smuggled drug were arranced at Piers N'o ?.4 nnd 4? and after the opium was brought a-shore by guards and iccretod in the hiding places It was conveyed by automobile Into Chinatown The government names A J Taylor, now under arrest In Los Angeles, in con nection with the Investigation as the receiving acent and tho federal offi cers who outlined the details of the confessions say that the guard who made them also name Taylor as the receiving agent. Wealthy Chinese across the Pacific agents who traveled on Oriental lin ers, officers of the San Francisco customs service and others here were all In close association In conducting the unlawful traffic, say federal of ficers Warrants charging conspiracy to smuggle have been Issued for nine guards, besides those already arrest ed. The investigation has been in prog ress for months and was conducted by Harry Tidwell, special agent of the treasury department. It Is stated that the evidence that has been gath ered came into the hands of the In veslgators when members of the ring quarreled over the question of rais ing money for a bond for Max Muller. who was Indicted on charges of smuggling opium last July. F Heral officers say that the usual premium earned by those who smug gled opium ashore was $5 a tin and it Is stated that Instances have come Into their knowledge In which as much at 150 tines of the drug would be carried ashore by one man. Since the disclosures concerning the ring became public the price of opium In Chinatown has advanced from $45 to $75 a tin. 1 Best for the W ft Big Consumer ji fl Best for the M Small fd M Consumer W W The biggest smelting, m m manufactu ring and Wi mm power plants Hi this Iff WM mountain country burn rak A bard em Coal. m 9 And ihr?-r be&n WA burning ft from throe, to IM mA six yean. rfl W They've comjwur'vi It fA with oilier coals, made m British therm -l unit FA l and ojialjtlcal torts. lOL I Tsy leruw it how STJ much hoat thoy can em. rk 'A from tt hew much the W l3 hcjii eosi Wi OB They've poel the IM ml rasinf St ''they M T&i&y burn "Aberdeen" Wi WM neu lfs bt M V ftoved by actual teat m Wn Horn consunvers. too, Wi wOl find It profitable to la EA.atitwsI n?

Ml pCOUDDOES STUNT AGAIN French Aviator Re peats Thrilling Ma neuver of Turning a Somersault With an Aeroplane In Presence of Army Officials and Public Versailles. France. Sept. 2. The thrilling maneuver of turning a som ersault in the air with an aeroplane flying at rapid speed was repeated today by the Frenxh a lator Pegoud, "er the arodrom"at Buc. near here, with perfect success. Pegoud had promised that his per formance at Juvlsy yesterday was not the result of an accident but was a proof of proper control and also of the stability of the aeroplane. Ho carried out the daring feat with ap parent ease again tndav in the pre once of tho officers of the French army flying eorps, and a large as semblage of the general public. Penoud ran his aeroplane Into the renter of the field and Indicated to a battery of moving picture operators and newspaper photographers the part nf the sky from whlrh he would' berin to fly with his head downward. He then took his seat at the motor and rose In a spiral to a height of 3,Wi faet. There he turned his aero plane into a vertlclo position with Its tall upward and drove down toward the earth like an arrow. When he had descended to an altitude of l.r.un feet he legan with his machine to describe a vast letter "9." The wheels of the aeroplane were clearly vislhle n the middle of the "S" sticking upward while Pegoud could be seen hanging with his head down The aviator sailed along In this position for about 50 seconds. Then his craft, with a great sweep ing curve, came again Inf.. a horteon tal position," this time with the aviator head forward The silence, which hitherto had been disturbed only by the whirr of the motor, was broken by a tremendous cheer from the erowd. Meanwhile Pegoud spiralled to earth He had been In the air only ten minutes altogether. Juvlsy, France. Sept. 1 The dur ing French aviator Pegoud, who, on August 80 made a parachute drop from an aeroplane from a height ol I feet, accomplished a much remark able feat today, which at first sight appears to have been a piece of ex traordinary aerial acrobatics, but which experts declare was an epoch making experiment towards the at tainment of safety In the air. Brief ly. Pegoud caused his monoplane to describe a gigantic letter "S" in the bky, during which he was flying up side down for about a quarter of a mile The strictest secr-cy was main tained prior to the test and only a few persons were present when Pe goud took the air. He mounted rnp Idly to a height of more than 8000 feet, describing a curve. Then t li I forward part of the machine was ob served to incline towards the earth Through glasses the spectators saw the propeller slacken and the mono- I plane further Incline until ll wai i i nendlcular with the earth It seemed as If nothing could stop the headlong plunge. As the machine dropped swiftly, the tall dipped again towards the earth and the pilot appeared head down ward. Seconds, which seemed houie passed With an almost Imperceptible curve, the machine shifted its course to a straight line, the pilot in in flame position How long he remained upside down, the anxious watchers could not determine, but It was long enough to cause them to believe thai he never would right himself. Pres ently the monoplane dipped again and with a graceful curve assumed an erect position Pegoud flew for a few minutes to and fro and descended by a series of beautiful spirals On land iug the aviator said' "Everything went splendidly. The levers answered the slightest touch I remained for a long time head dow u wards, because I wanted to. not be cause I couldn't help it The sensa tlon is strange, but not unpleasant, and the machine did not pitch at all "I went very slowly so us to avoid subjecting the machine to too violent strain, but had I wanted to I could have righted myself much more quickly," Pegoud's experiment was prompted by the theory recently expressed by Louis Bleriot that In the paramount problem of attaining safety in the air automatic self-righting devices and parachutes are beside the question, that they are . just as much at the mercy of a sudden violent gust as the ordinary air craft Bleriol's theory pointed out that even birds are known to have been capsized by squalls, yel they were able by folding their win. to withdraw use of their surface from the action of the air It was urged that an endeavor should be made to so construct aeroplanes that they could not be capsized. Pegoud undertook to demonstrate that the ordinary' aeroplane, not fit ted with any special device, was pos sessed of much greater stability di m generally was believed and experts arc of the opinion that he succeeded brilliantly. fX) NOTICE Excelsior Camp No. 3:M0 R.
