- ..There is much of interest to this
country in the lately published report
- of the British board of trade dealing
with the iron and steel idustry and in
the Germnian reports oi the same sub

remarkablo growth of the Industry in
the United States(specially during the
last few years, and the eXtenL to which
steel has replacted iron. seven years
ago tho IAg iron production of this
country was not much lin excess of that
of England. since then it has b~ee
doubled, and althoigh Germany has
increased its output by over 50 per
cent the American record now equals
the, combined output of both countries.
The steel report slhowvs evell more
notable uilproveimlent. For every 100
tons of pig liron consuned for all pur
poses eighty tons of steel are made
here as against seventy-flive in Oer

but one-third. The United States is
today making over 2,000,000 tons more
steel than all tile world dk( nitie years
ago and is turning out almost half of

There could be no more strilking den

opposition to Governor Heyward.
The Columbia correspondent of
the Nows and Courier sums up the
situation asfollows:
"There was some talk immedi
ately after the firat primary of last

would be pressed for governor at.
the next primary, in view of ti e
surprising and extrabrdinary race
that he made with theetroig field
in the race. He has stated-that
ho will not oppose Governior Htey*

his eye on- the- governor's- chair

This samo correspondent states
that Governor Heyward will-stand
for re-election as will all of his
cabinet, unless it is Tieasurer Jen
nings, who has had the office for
two terms. We are further in
formed by the Columbia correi
pondent that
"The impression now is that if
Gov. Heyward's administration
continues to run as smoothly and
satisfactorly as at present, he will
have no opposition in 1904."
So it seems to have been pretty
well settled by the politicians, and
notice given, that every heretofore
prospective candidate will bg ex.
pected to cu'rb his political ambi
tion for two years longer, at h ast,
after which tim6 the field will :be
open to all.comers. If the specu
lations of the Columbia correspond

two positions on the State ticket
open for candidates-that of treas.

his calculations on the fact that
the present officials will have only
served one term, we can't under.

iVho"umber markets of the orient and
the shap a'vhich the United states In,
likely to have in supplying them are-the
subject just noW of'some attention by
the department of commerce and labor
through its bureau of statistics. The
bureau recently received and published,
reports of nerican consulo in the
orient Which winnounced the arrival of
the first cargo of lumber in the Chinese
market by a Russian vessel from Via
divostok. This fact opens the question
of future. competition for the oriental
mai'ket between the American lumber
interests on the Pacific coast on the
ofe hand and.that of the Rushians in
Siberia and on the Yalu river on the
other. In both casec.,enornous re
sources are awaiting development. The
American Industry of the Paelilc coast
has the advantage of organizntion on a
large scale and of mechanical equip
rient unequaled by that o( tay other
field In the world. This is evidenced
by the rate of annual production. Un
oflielal estimates put the annual cut of
lumber and shingles of the three Pa
cife states at 4,600,000,000 feet, of
which California supplies 800,000,00)
feet, Oregon 740,000,000 feet and Wash
Ington 2,300,000,O feet.
From present indications the United
States has n6thing to fear from her
rivals in fhe lumber trade of the Pa
ifie. Ultimately the Philippine Is
lands will no doubt contribute mate
rially to the supply. The trade from
tM Pacifle coast of the United States
is now in a strong position.
, During the fiscal year 1902 the Unit
ed States exported 1,402,409,000 feet of
lumber aad sawed timber, of which
220,847,000 feet were sent from the
Pacifle coast. The exports of wood
and manufactures thereof advanced
from $20,000,000 in 1893 to $57,000,000
in 1903. Lumber, the largest item, in
creased in value from $9,000,000 ih
1893 to $21,000,000 in 1903.
Forestry and the Rlailroada.
Comparatively few people apparent
ly understand and appreciate the prad
tical work being done by the bureau of
forestry of the department of agri
culture at WN'ashington. An interesting
application recently camne to the bureau
from certain railways concerning the
problem of securing new ties, a prob
bem yearly becoming more difficult of
solution as the long leafed pine lumber
grows senreer. Yet over a hundred
million ties must be used annually
merely to replace those no longer serv
iceable, without counting thoseo neces
sary for new construction.
The reply of tihe bureau of forestry
was that cheaper woods tfin long
leafed p1in should be used for in
stance, beech, birch and maple. To the
complaint that these timbers rot quick
ly the bureau showed that the Chemin
de For do i'Est in France has succeeded.
in making beech ties last over thirty
years by simply impregnating them
with tair oil. But tihe advice from the
bureau did not stop at this point; it
suggested that railways should them
selves engage in practical forestry by
acquiring large tracts of land suitable
for timmber; they would thus be as
sured of am steady suppily of ties. Fol
lowing this advice, the New York Coni
tral , Ermie, Pennusylviania anld BalIti

weoodands along their routes with a

The Pic]
ment of the mill prospered so well
under its Superintendent, Cpipt.
Woo&, who is a northern man, and
a man in tho right place, and the
water power being insufficient to
operate all the machinery, electric
ity was decided upon in connection
with the water power.
In Jauuary 1901, the Etheridge
Granite Company, of Elberton,
(Ga., commenced the. erection of a
dam for a dynamo ab-out a mile
below the mill, on the same river,
(Twelve Mile,) near the Lay
bridge. In about eight months
they com pleted one of the best rock'
dams in the South and in a few
weoks after the completion of the
a, a part of this machinery at
the Norris mill wias being whirled
by electricity. It was then that
the presidelnt, Gol. Norris, fotind
(lit that he had more power than
he could utilize with the size of
the mill as it was. With this in
view,.a meeting of the stockliold.
Drs was called and $50,000 more

?xtension to the presentmill. The
Nontract tor this was let to Messrs.

3rection and is being pushed as
rapidlly as possible.
When completed this new addi.
tion will con tain 5,040 spind les and
100 looms, making in all .18,288
ipindles and 452 looms. In en.
