"WASHINGTON, Aug. 17. Qualifying ret nsrain in the A-l class of fame as de fined in John G. Saxe's immortal toast, Vermont leads the union in the quantity of its maple sugar "tonnage," according to the 1020 federal census of agriculture. As everybody knows, it doesn't require any census compilation to convince the world of the superiority in quality of this far-famed product of Green Mountain ma ples. In addition to the New England group, the maple sugar and syrup producing states are listed as New York, Ohio, Penn sylvania. Indiana, Illinois, Michigan. Wis consin. Minnesota. Missouri. Iowa, Mary land. West Virginia, and Virginia, with -i few sentterins whose combined output of sujrar scarcely exceeded 10.000 pounds. Vermont's is the lion dnction. with a to'.nl of !.- 1 - not operate to persons of any increase the number one alien nationality that their total numbers at any one time shall exceed 110 per cent of the total pop ulation of the- territory. The .house committee on immigration and naturalization has been engaginl in taking considerable testimony on the sub ject of labor problems in Hawaii, and it has been brought out that the prospective control of the labor situation there by the Japanese was one of the reasons for meas ures of this nature in congress, the hope being ultimately to provide for the intro duction of sufficient Chinese agricultural labor to save the situation. Senator Dil lingham's bill differs in minor details from the house bill on this subject.

How many trees had to be tapped to produce Vermont's crop of sugar? Yes. the census man can tell you that. lie says that tlu-y collected sap from nearly (!,(MM). M M) trees, or. to be exact to the nth degree, that they tapped r.l).V.."i: maples in lfl!. or "i''!).SXl more than were dec orated with nap-spouts 10 years before. This nunilwr is one-third of all trees tapped in the country. At that, however, the weight of the sugar made fell off some 1,47.".(M)0 pounds as compared with 1!HV.I. It is clear that Vermont sugar makers devoted" their efforts to the production of the solidified sweetness rather than the liquified kind, for the state s output of maitle svrun. although it led the New Kngland group with '.:?1 .02 4 gallons, fell far behind New York's, credited with 1.080.HOO eallons. Ohio is the only state to exceed Vermont's quota. Greene Gets iii Speech. The Iiousf Tiad been cleaning up a number of ed.ds and ends in the way of minor bills that had been on the calendar of the military affairs committee, and the debate upon one of the least of them all. an act authorizing the secretary of war to exchange with foreign nations so desir ing samples of arms and equipment in use by the army of the United States, bad been dragging along interminably with a plethora of pros and cons that when later reduced to cold type filled some 10 pages of the Congressional Record. Congress man Frank L. Greene nf Vermont, a mem ber of the committee, was "on guard," as he usually is whenever military matters are uppermost. Finally came his chance to sum up the situation with respect to this particular bit of legislation, and this is how he did it in picturesque phrase ology : "I am perfectly willing to admit in the privacy of this room, or under these cir cumstances, that this bill is not a very important bill. There is jno question about that. It was brought out here in cidentally in the course of the grist that t hp committee on military affairs is clean ing up. No one had any anticipation that it would provoke anything like the amount of apprehension and alarm that seems to be all at once manifested by so many patriots here. I wonder really, as a matter of fact, whether we soothsayers can actually look each other in the face this afternoon without laughing. T won der whether we are not really engaged on a little bit of skylarking business that masks itself under the more cumbersome, pompous, and ponderous terms of parlia mentary law and usage, but which is really a little bit of .schoolboy fun. "I cannot think that men whose heads arc hljth enough to be seen above the mul titude in a district so that they have been elected to come to this supreme council of the nation have any particular uneasi ness or alarm about some historical rel ies of a war being tucked away in a museum case somewhere on the face of this earth, and I do not believe they do That is exactly the purpose of this bill. the avowed and distinct purpose of the bill, and nolxnly with any kind of a microscope can read any other purpose into its language. It is intended exactly as the gentleman from New York has sug- jrested. to permit the secretary of war to .ioin with representatives of other nations in similar capacity in the exchange of his torical relies of this last World war and of the existing military establishments of the several countries, o that the museums of the various countries can be supplied while yet there is time in order that their cases may contain for.all the generations to come evidences of some of the curious things used in the 'long ago.' The school children and the adults will go therejand look at the exhibits just exactly as you and i go down to tue national museum now and gaze with a good deal of curi osity and sometimes with wonder on some of the relics left from the Revolutionary war. The matter is a perfectly simple one. : - -(--' "If a few folk see all kinds of mys terious tilings in it, if few smeH all kinds of Ngroes in all kinds of woodpiles, why, go ahead. There are a lot of men who spend four weeks before a fight shadow boxing,' and then get licked in the fight. If you want to indulge in shadow boxing, go tojT: There is nothing to hit, though you might throw your arms out. "This congress is a national institution and. in spite of the modesty which we politicians inherently possess, we know we are being looked at by the, people, and wheMtftiiey see that such a trivial thing as this, which is only one of the convention alities of extending courtesies among na tions, is invested with such a nightmare of apprehension, they will wonder whether we have common sense or not."

Grant Certain Monthly Food Allowance to Wliole Factors wliich Can Produce Stipulated Amount of Goods With Fewer Men and Sell Surplus. RIGA, Latvia. Aug. 17. Many experi ments are being introduced in the man agement and supply of Russian factories in an effort to obtain products to exchange with the peasants for food. Some time ago a piece work scale was introduced in the hope that this would in cite rfidivid'ial workmen to increased ef-; forts. According to a Moscow dispatch, all factory managements have been or dered to carry it into effect urgently and immediately. In many industrial concerns a collec tive rationing plan has been substituted for the old system of granting individual Because an old cistern near the foot of School street on Elliot street had not been filled in, the rear wheels of the steam roller used by the highway department settlesl into the hole yesterday, the cover ing of which was insufficient to with stand the weight of the roller as It passed over, giving the roller the appearance of n horse sitting dom. The roller was driven out under its own power. Mr. -Vchafer of the United States de partment of agriculture arrived here last night. Today he is doing survey work for the drainage of farms. Four farmers have applied for his services. They are II. F. Weaver of West Brattle born, Cabot Ilolbrook of the Scott farm in Dummerston, John W. Hamilton of Vernon and II. W. Sargent, who has a farm in Dummerston. He plans to have ,the work completed here tonight. lie will go ,Irom Here to nm.sor comity. rations. Under the new method a whole factory is granted a monthly allowance of foodstuff and money on the condition that it turns out a stipulated amount of gods. If the factory is able to produce this quantity with a smaller number of work men than estimated, the surplus of food stuffs and money can be distributed among the workmen as a premium. The All-Ktissian council ot trade best. unions lias isui a circular pointing oiu'aol that increases of wages in money pay ments are inadvisable at this time be- cause this would necessitate an increase in the output of currency which the gov ernment is even now unable to print in sufficient quantities. The government is snid to have been printing until lately about 200.0(K).(MM).(M)O of rubles of paper money a month. This amount has jbeen increased to the maximum possible ojftput of the printing machines. ROCKWELIAS SUNNY SOUTH. Colored Show, Built for Laughing Pur ixses, at Auditorium Aug. 21.
