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

themselves most by an open break

at their worst, no calamity has oc
curred, only disappointment in early

That is the opinion of Henry Clews

the demand for money to move crop

with alarm by Clews, who, while ad

' next few months will be the tariff,
"Our manufacturers have ben en

little enthusiasm over our tariff

any permanent foothold for their

the searchers Is still In progress. 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

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

French Aviator Re
peats Thrilling Ma
neuver of Turning a
Somersault With an
Aeroplane In Presence
of Army Officials and
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
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
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
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
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
