The total number of cabin and steerage passengers landed at the port of New York during the year 1906 by the trans-Atlantic steamship lines was 1,159,551. In 1905, 992,065 were landed, which gives the . year Just ended the record by a margin of 167,488. One of the big surprises. Is "prom ised in the section devoted to mines, metallurgy and chemical Industries, says one writer. Exhibits are being prepared to show the enormous nat ural resources which can be profi tably developed In Ireland. Immense seams of coal have recently been found In North Antrim. Professor Oole, of the Geological and survey department of Ireland, says that in this district alone there are 55,000 tons of coal, 150,000,000 tons of rich iron ore and an enormous deposit of Are clay, the value of which can hard ly be estimated. A showing of these resources will be one of the great features of the exhibition. Besides the coal there are no less than 33, 972,000,000 tons of peat fuel In Ire land that only need better means of transportation to develop Into a co lossal national asset It has been found that peat loam yields very fine crops of tomatoes and Is unsurpassed for the cultivation of bulbs. In ad dition to the numerous uses to which it can be put in Its raw state, many valuable by-products are manufac tured from It They are playing politics some in the home these days, says a Wash ington writer. There is a bill before the house Judiciary committee, called the Hepburn-Dolliver bill. It Is a measure strongly favored by the temperance element for It places ship ments of liquors under the state law as soon as they reach the borders of the tttate Into which they are consign ed. The brewers are, and have been for years, fighting this bill tooth nml toe-nail. They claim It Is backed by the whiskey men whose liquor beinst put up In smaller packages can be smuggUnl into a state where barrels and oases of beer would be easily de tected by the authorities. They are supported by the German-American alliance, which, through its officers and committees have flatly told the Judiciary committee that the pawsage of the bill would be regarded by all German-Americans as a blow to per sonal liberty. The republicans, who are In the majority la the committee and In the house are therefore In a delicate position between the brew ers and the Gernian-Anierlcan al liance, on the one side, and the pro hibitionists on the other. The demo crats are helping to confuse their op ponents by insisting the bill shall be reported, thus trying to force the re publicans to offend either one or the other of the two contending forces.

A $2,000,000 dividend to all pol icyholders has been declared by the Metropolitan- Life Insurance com pany for the year 1907. This com- I for the liberal policy on which it is managed, has already distributed in dividends to Its policyholders about $10,000,000 in the last eight years, and the new dividend of $2,000,000 will bring its voluntary, disburse ments to policyholders up to the im mense sum of $12,000,000. . On all Industrial whole life poli cies dated prior to January 1, 1903, a dividend equivalent to four weeks' premiums, or about 8 per cent of the premiums for the year, has been de clared. This, dividend will amount to $1,000,000, and In the distribution of profits will be included all holders of life policies In those companies which have been consolidated with the Metropolitan. - A further mortuary dividend of an other million has been declared in the industrial department This ap plies to all death claims incurred during the year ending December 81, j 1907, where the policy has been in force-over five years. In the case of death claims, the dividend has been apportioned according to the age of the nolicy. If the Dolicy has been in force five years, the beneficiary will 1 be entitled to a dividend of 5 per cent, where it has been in force ten years the dividend Is 10 per cent, and so on up to twenty-five years, when the dividend will equal 25 per cent of the claim. Other benefits which the officers of the company have brought about tor the policyholders are the increase In value of all industrial policies six months from their date, and the lib erty which is given to all policy holders over 80 years ot age who have paid premiums for 15 years or more to receive the face value of the pol icy In cash or a full paid-up policy. In financial circles this action of the Metropolitan is looked upon as mark ing a new era in life Insurance his tory, and the voluntary conversion by the company of whole life policies Into endowments or fully paid-up in surance is said to be tne most liberal concession ever made by any indus trial Insurance company.
