It is news to most people that
the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion has undertaken the investiga
tion of the express companies. The
announcement that this policy has
lust been decided on is misleading
for the Commission has had men in
the field for months making a
searching inquiry into the busi
ness methods of the companies.
As a result of this investigation,
it is believed, the carriers under
investigation filed new schedules
wbicb are probably intended to
meet some of the more serious com
plaints regarding the manner of
conducting the express business.
It has been contended for a long
time that the express monopoly was
making excessive profits. It will
gratify the public if something can
be done to insure more equitable
charges for service and better pro
tection to the customers oí the companies.
The American Bison Society
made a careful census and found
that there were 2,108 pure-blood

census was made. Of these buffa
lo 1,007 arp in captivity in the
United States, 6afi are in captivity
in Canada, and 475 are wild. In
1908, there were 1,116, buffalo in
captivity in the United btates, and
of these a considerable numliei
was purchased by the Canadian
Government, but the buffalo cen
sus shows an actual increase of
about aoo. The largest herds in
private hands now are at Belvedere
Kansas; Kona, Mont.; Newport,
N. H.; Pawnee, Ukla. ; Goodnight,
Texas; and on Antelope Island,
Great Salt Lake.
The Sheep Census
According to the Census Bureau
the sheep industry has not shown
any material change since last cen
sus in 1900. Excluding lambs,
because of the difference in the
t?me of year when the census was
taken, it is shown that there were
39,470,31a wool producing sheep
in 1910, as compared with 39.852,
967 for 1900. Corrected figures
are expected to show an actual de
crease of about 1 per cent from
1900. Taking the returns by geo
graphical divisions, there was a
decrease of about 1,000,000 sheep
in the North Atlantic division, in
the South Atlantic division there
was a decrease of about 154,000,
and in the South Central division
the decrease was about 163,000.
In the North Central division then
was scarcely any change, 10,069,
451 being reported in 1910, or only
some 14,000 more than in 1900.
The Western division showed an
increase of about 1,000,000 sheep.
Stopping Customs Leak
For many years, according to
the customs officials, the govern
ment has I wen losing large sums
of money annually because the
importers of Sicilian lemons did
not pay duty on all the sound fruit
they imported. When Collector
Loeb discovered this leak the au
thorities set about making of re
gulations which would stop the
leak. They finally decided to base
the amount of rotten fruit, (on
which customs duties are remitted)
on the samples shown by the im
porters to the trade. The Secre
tary of the Trer.sury approved this
plan, but the importers protested
that it was not fair. "Why not?"
asked Secretary McVeagh. The
importers could make no satisfact
ory reply, so the order stands, and
the government will save much
The department of Agriculture
has made careful estimates of the
number of deer killed last season.
The intense heat that has spread
over the country this summer has
had the effect of checking some of
the debate in the Senate on the re
ciprocity bill. It is now believed
that the bill will be finally passed
by August 1 st, which President
I ait will promptly sign, and thus
our trade with Canada will rapidly
spread and develop, thus adding
to the prosperity of both countries.
In the meanwhile, swat the moS'
Congressman Hobson should
volunteer as a special detective to
watch Admiral Togo.
