9 AVERAGE OF 3 POUNDS TO TREE Best Maple Sugar Season in 14 Vears Says George 0. Oary of St. Johnsbury. CROP SEEMS RATHER UNEVEN l,nrge Average In Small Producing rrllnti Oliln unit Pennsylvania Crops Small Cmindn Will lime (rent Yield Xnv York's Good. St. Johnsbury, April 13. An Interview was obtained to-nlglit from Oeorgo C. Cuw, the recognized nulliorlty (in maplo Ftignr. Ir thinks the printed report that D.0i'O.0iV trees havo been lapped In Ver mont is correct and says returns will ('ww the Vilggost yield In 14 years. The average to-day Is three pounds to a tree and as the season will last another week, t'icio will he more runs of sap. Thn crop seems to he rather uneven as re ports come ot largo nvcrages In some sections where the total production Is Very limited and would not amount to much In the g"iiornl average. In largo producing sections of the State farmers estimates range from 1U pounds to three, pounds to the tree. Largest crop In re cent years was In when the average ylild was about three pounds to the tree. The largest crop since then was In IP"! when the J icld was 2?i pounds. In lOWi It was only two pounds while In 1EXX5 an unusually poor year, the. averages was 114 pounds to the tree. The crop In Ohio Is alKiut half of last year's priduction and In rennsylvanla It Is very light. New York State has had very good easm while Canada bids fair t produce one of her record breaking crops. No prices have yet been establlsh el on 1 1 10 sugar and none will be made until the end of the season. On account of the pure food laws the demand for maple sugar Is large. DOCKET GOING TO PIECES.

MUNICIPAL MILK PLANT, PoMMlhlc city of WnMilngtnn Will Own Mm nnlry WiiiiIm (o Get Snnltnry V .'Milk for It Resilient. Washington, April 22. Appreciating! One year nfter tho earthquake and (Ire tln fact that despite Its long continued which wiped nut all tho business section efforts tho health department ot tho of San Fram eo nnd at least half of tho District of Columbia, operating under resldenco pm-tlnn, tho tiansformatlon laws framed by Congress, and most from acres nr gaunt skeletons of ruined rigid and drastic In their character, buildings nm heaps of brick to the he lms been unable to bring the inllk sup- ginnlngs of .' well ordered city I.h little ply of Washington up to the standard short of nun velous. All the skyscrapers where It Is regarded ns even npproxl- are restored r In process of restoration, mately healthful, the ndvlsablllty Is mi thnt they present few traces of the now being seriously considered by tho whirlwind of flame through which they officials of starting n municipal dairy "nave passed, and scores of substantial to be run nt tho expense of the Pis- buildings of 1 rick nnd stone havo arisen (rlct and upon a model plan. Tho oh-, on the main business streets to mark Jeet of the municipal dairy will not bo tho confidence of properly owners In the merely to set an example to other 1 dairies, but to furnish milk during thn summer months to families whore there are Infants or Invalids requiring a pure, entirely healthful milk. The proposition Is fathered by Dr. Wiley, government chemist and pure food expert, who believes It will work 1 out well nnd who Is sanguine, ns this , means the ultimate solution of the whole question of snnltnry milk. Dr. ; Wiley declares thnt During tho last few months there has been pure milk served In at least two of the Washington ho- ! tels nnd that it Is the tlrst time this exactions of labor unions. With enr hns hnppeni d In the capital city In tho pouters deniaiMIng $C a day and brick memory of the man. payers $S a d.i. these people have sudden Recently the district commissioners ly discovered mat building Is not a black have found the question of the enforce- ! ment of the provisions ot a sanitary and they hn handled the saw and plane milk law that was passed during the as though tim hnd actually learned the llrst session of the lost Congress a! ancient trndi "f the carpenter. Many of problem offering such difficulties that t'le"SP homes m tunlly have been eonstruet It was necessary to appoint a special ! f'1 '" evening and early morning.

In thi I i-ir inii. la ,, it u iu n- m, Sternberg, former surgeon-genernl ot the army. Added to those Is Dr. Wood ward, district health officer, nnd n coterie of Washington physicians. The health department here believes thnt probably 50 per cent, of the cows In the dairies throughout the country are centers of tuberculosis dissemina tion nnd thnt the general supply or milk Is dnngLroiisly unsanitary, espe cially to Infants living nlniost exclu sively upon It. It relnlzes that tho solatlon or killing of half the cows would entail a great hardship upon thu dairymen and would tend to pre cipitate a milk famine and high prices for milk, but It Is determined to bring nil the milk consumed hero up to a wholesome standard. Tho first slop will be mnde by a proffer to advertise by public certification each dairy U the district and Its environs, when that dairy has compiled with nil recom- mendatlons and Its cows have under- I check the constiuetlon of class A bulld gone the necessary tuberculin to3ts. ' lugs, ns the high cost of tho steel frames This will plnce these dairies on a standing with the proposed municipal dairy and occasion a demand for their milk. The dairies not volunteering will be forced Into line, the tuberculin test applied to them and eventually only the certified milk allowed on the market. The concrete plan for carrying out a portion of the scheme is In recommenda tions that Dr. Wiley on behnlf of the com mission has Just sent to the health de pigment. These provide: That the milk supplied to Infants under three years of age In the District should bo certified by the health oflleer, It should not contain more than 10,000 bacteria a cubic centimetre, should bo not more thin 12 hours' old nnd should be delivered in artificially cooled packages. That the health oflleer of the District be authorized to advertise the dairies which will be willing to so modify their barns, stables, etc., If necessary, ns to secure 1 license from him for the production of certified milk under tho most modern Im proved sanitary conditions. That each cow furnishing tho milk In tho dairy be tested, under the supervision of tho health oflleer, for tuberculosis or other contagious diseases, and that Infect ed nnlmnls be excluded from the herd. That samples drawn from the supply of certified milk furnished the city be sc. cured for the purpose of making the ha terin count and determining the chemical composition. Thnt nnl'pnfs .nnil fiinnlifins lin nrrrMtl to use only certified milk, nt least tor food for Infants under thn nge of threo vixirH That if nrlvntn il.tlrlnn cninm bo induced to furnish certified milk tho commissioners of thn district, ns 11 health measure affecting in the highest degree thn welfare of tho district, bo asked, If It enn legally bo done, to es tablish n munlelpnl dairy for thn pur pose of furnishing certified milk for the use of Infants under threo yeara. That pending thn tlm-o thnt must no .unrll.. Inn.n for the Innu corn Hon of n service of certified milk for Infants' ,,p thn henltb oflleer bo nuthnrized to publish n list of dairies from which tho milk HUPPly Is drawn, giving tho aver- ago rating of ench dairy, the chemical composition and bactorlal count ot the samples. In this plnn nro cmbrnced largely tho same principles that permeate the pure food law, of which Dr. Wllny Is tho author. Under It tho milk will bo known for Just what It Is ns to pur ity, snnltnry qunlltleB nnd quantity of bacteria contained. Knowing theso things tho consumer can purchase ac cording to his desires In the light of tho facts until tho entire purification Is ultimately effected. The regula tions throughout nro much stricter than those proposed by tho ordinance that Is now before tho hoard of nlder mcn In New York, nnd tho dairy reg illations are moro rigid hero, ns hns been proved by tho recent abandon ment of this fltsld on tho part of cor tain New York denlers who hnd been shipping to inls market, because of nn unwlllliigi"ss to comply with thn regulations, Thn mntter of a municipal I dairy Is not contemplated In the New York pure milk campaign, nor is tho idea of publishing tho list of dealers furnishing certified milk nor a state ment of tho exnet character of milk sold by given dealers, Trea.nrer Ait, Trennurtt E.

NEW SAN FRANCISCO Rebuilding lliirnrd City Forty Thotl nnml Men lime Received sfHO.ono.OOo in wnKeN. future of a Kieater hnn Francisco than tho one that ns swept by fire. In the resldi ice yections of North Reach and tho Mls n the reconstruction has been nothing short ot marvelous. Here tho fire ordln nccs permit tho erection of wooden bulldi gs, and whole blocks havo been rebuilt In far better style than before the disaster, "no feature of the rebuild- lng at North Reach has been the large amount of work done by tho owners with their own hauls. This section is largely Italian and Spanish, and these Latin races have sh n'n a fine disregard of the art. They h.i- laid their own brick walls tlicso mon ha' not nnly liullt tho wooil work of the r homes, but they havo ! shingled the riots, plastered the walls nnd painted 11 "lr new homes. Any Sun day the obei r at North Reach nnd the filnge of Teli iraph Hill may see hun dred of sw.vthy men completing tho homes which u Mild never have been theirs had they waitrd to hire workmen at the present excessive' cost of labor. REMOVAL OF RAD ORDINANCE. Down In the mam business street one great check to mole rapid reconstruction has been the ordinance adopted Just after tho tire, limiting the belght of all build ings to one at d iin.-half times the width of the stieet. TliH foolish measure was strongly ndvoe.vou by Supervisor Uuffe;. head of the bo.rd of public works, und'r the mlMukeir ltlmu that1 It would 'ompel , the wldenlnu' of streets like Kearney. Montgomery and (Teary. If did nothing of the port, as the city was not In a pos! (t'on'to pay for the condemnation of very i aluable hind Its only result was . of these stiuctures precluded their build Ing unless they could be 12 stories or more. What mnde this regulation wor.'e was that the claws A buildings nro those which should be erectid In the new San 1-ran Cisco, as they "Were tho only ones to pass through tho earthquake unscathed. Had nut the fire swept the business section of San Frnnclsco not one of the big build lngs would havo been Injured materially. Hero and there it chimney or a cornice had fallen, hut for all practical purposes the buildings wero unharmed. EXTENT OF THE DISASTER. Tho following facts will give nn idc.i of the extent of tho disaster: Tho fire, which lusted "2 bonis, burned qver an area of four square mlb s, 2,01 acres, nr 511 city blocks. The Hie line was over 10 1-2 miles The loss of life was 3s.!), nnd tho total prop erty loss was $l,Oiio.O0O.CM. The Insurance loss wns jr.-i.OO'J," 0. of which SIHI.OOO.OOO has been paid. The fire stretched from Mission Creek on the south to the harbor, or north beach shore, on thn north, nnd from tho waterfront on the cast to Van Ness avenue on the west. At McAllister street tho fire Jumped Van Ness avenuo nnd the flame ran out about threo I blocks nnd then bent to the south, sweep ing over tho Mission ns far ns 20th street. I In nil this great spnc? only nbout a score 1 of buildings remained ummrned.

The work of reconstruction, especially In thn business dlstilct, meant the repair o? streets and sidewalks, tho Installation the electric lights gas and power, tho re habtlltatlon of the i-kyscrapers which were merely gutted and tho clearing nw.iy .

Orders for materials hnd to bo In threo or four months heforo they could bo lllled, nnd then there 'was another long wait before the railroads could deliver them. THIRTY MILLIONS FOR LAROR. It Is estimated that 10,000 men havo been engnged In this work of rebuilding San Francisco, nono of whom iccelved less than 2 u day for their labor. Urlcklayers received $S a day, carpenters $5 nnd $il, plumbers 6, lathers JO, painters .", nnd even tho unskilled men who have removed debris and cleaned bricks havo received $3 a day, A careful estimate gives J30.000.000 spent for labor In 11 montlis of rebuilding, for during tho first months after the lire very little real work was done nsldo from building shacks for refugees nnd putting up one-story tern pornry stores In tho burned district. The same es-tlmate gives $35,000,000 spent for miiterlals during this period und J10,000,O00 spent by merchants hi restoring their stocks of goods, Hero nro sonio statistics which show tho great Increase of building operations und tho liveliness of thu real catato mar kot. Tho value of building permits for March wns W,431,4!2, or a total for building permits since the flro of $C1,317,C0S. March rent estato transfers nmounted to SfiO, of a valuo of $1,100,000; postal receipts, $131,350; customs receipts, $000,20.30, ngalnst $006,021.30 In March, 1000; March bank clearings, $IS7,870, 170.70, ngalnst $IWi,417,22I.O:. for March, 1000. ; REPAIRING THE SKYSCRAPERS. 1 Of the 3." clnss A buildings which were 1 left gutted after the fire, nil havo beon 1 repaired or nre In process of repnlr. Only one thn Kohl, or old Alvlnza Ha-ywnrd building, nt the northeast corner of Mont 'gomcry nnd California streets was prnc j tlonlly uninjured by tho fire. This wn duo to tho metal window sills nnd tho fact that tho building waB surrounded by very low buildings. Of the others, several nro near completion, like the Merchants" Ex change building, while others, llko tho Flood building nnd the new Chronicle nnd the Mutual Savings Rank buildings, nro now occupied and practically completed. The work of reconstruction of these clnss A buildings has been very heavy, as most of the exterior stone had to be replaced. On the St. Francis hotel about one-third of the stone fnclng wns removed, and nbout an equal amount of the Shreve building. ,Tho outer walls of tho Mer chants' Exchange building wero practical ly rebuilt, nnd tho snmo process will bo necessary with tho Mills building. It is a curious fact thnt granlto suffered moro than nny other ntone from tho heat. The fine granlto Corlnlhlnn pillars on tho Hlbornla bank, tho most beautiful In the city Were scaled off by the heat nnrt practically ruined. All the granite curh lngs of the sidewalks wero chipped off by the heat. Refore the fire Kan Francisco had moro hotels nnd lodging houses to tho popula tion than any city of Its size In the coun try. Aftertheflremany department houes beyond tho fire lino were converted Into hotels, but Inside the burned district nt least a score of hotels are rapidly ap proaching completion, while three per manent hotels have been opened the Hamlin, In Eddy street, neaT Leaven worth; the Ornnd Central, at Market and "ell streets, and tho Robins, In Post street, near Ieavenwnrth, Tho new hotel district promises to bo between Van Ness and Powell streets and Post nnd Market streets. In this district, which was for merly given up largely to apartment houses nnd private resiliences, many largo hotels have been begun and half a dozen nro nenrlng completion, none containing less thnnlSO room". The St. Francis will be opened In September, and the new ad dition, which forms a third of the whole, will be ready In June, l!ns. The Fairmont opened on the nth of this month. The new Palace hotel will bo an enormous structure on tho site of the old hotel, but It will require two years to complete It. There nre probably more resturnnts In the city now than before the fire, as the gre it number of men employed In rebuilding must be fed and lodged near tho scene ot their labors. RFSINESS MEN RETURN SITES. TO OLD The temleney of business Is to seek thi1 nhl quarters oeeupleil hefoie the fire. The (enl estate nnd banklnf; houses havo Kone back to their olil sites, anil this has car ried all allied business to Montgomery and S.insome streets. Kearney street promises to become one of tho creat retail streets, n.s It was before tho fire, but Post street and Grant nvenue will be Improved. All the streets running from Market up to Van Ness south of Sutter street will be devoted entirely to business and hotels and apartment houses, as, under tlie flro rcKulatlons, It will be Imposslblo to bull.l In this district In wood. The old Nob Hill dhtrict promises to bo rehullt largely w'th apartment houses and hotels. Chinatown, which It was suggested be fore the fire should bo removed to tho I'otrero, Is back In Its location, tho C'iilj no3e merchants surpassing their white rivals In the nersy with which they have restored their business places. To sum up, It may bo said that by an other anniversary ot the disaster more than half of the burned district will bo covered with permanent buildings, anil five years will tee It completely restored. Portions of tho residence district will b2 rehabilitated more slowly unless the fire ordinances are relaxed, for It will bo Im posslblo to get returns from brick build ings for residences on such streets as Powell. Masson, Taylor, Jones and Leavenworth from nush to Sutter. The main feature of building Is the largo use of reinforced concrete, which before thn flro was barred by the labor unions. The latter attempted to prevent the use of concrete after tho fire, but they found that public sentiment was against them. Thn cost of rebuilding has been greatly Increased not only by tho ad vance In -wages of all kinds, but by the spirit of unrest anil carelossness among tho merchants. The experience of all builders Is that bricklayers, who nre get ting $S n day, nnd carpenters, who are ge' tlng til a day, do not work as well as they did when thoy were receiving normal wages. They "soldier" more, and they re sent tho reproofs of foreman, frequently leaving a good Job bocaus called to ac count for scamped work or for Idling. FRIENDS PUSH STANTON. IiihInI Hp Will Mnke Strong Candidate for Governor In Jims, Montpellcr, April 21. Tho lion. Zed S. Stanton of Roxbury will probably be a candidate for governor In IPOS. Kor fcomo weeks considerable pressure has been brought to bear on Mr. Stanton to Induce him to announce himself us a candfdate, but thus far he has remained silent on tho subject. Yesterday Mr. Stanton abso lutely refused to make any statement or to bo interviewed on tho subject. The friends of this prospective candidate Insist that lie will mako a strong candi date In the smaller towns of this nnd othor counties nnd that his strength In Harro nnd this city Is greater than appears on tho surface.
