WASHINGTON. Nov. 13.-Enormous

a report today by tho bureau of for
eign and domestic commerce. Since
1850 the population has more than
quadrupled, being now more than
IOC,000,000, the report says.
"In- the same period," continued the
report, foreign commerce has grown
from $318,000,000 to $4,259,000,000, and
the per capita value of exports from
?$16.96 to 123.27. National wealth has
Increased from $7,000,000,000 in 1870
to approximately $140,000,000,000;
money In circulation from $279,000,000
to $3,419,000,000; and New York bank
clearings from approximately $5,000,
000,000 to over $98,000,000,000, while
for the entire country bank clearing*
have grown from . $52,000,000,000 In
1887, the earliest year for which fle
ures are available, to $174,000,000,000
In 1913.
"Evidences of Improved social con

19,000.000 children now are enrolled
tn public .school? and . about 200,000
