Washington.—More meat was con
sumed in the United States last year
than in any previous year, the Depart
ment of Agriculture announced here
recently. The total consumption was
estimated at 16,333,000,000 pounds,
which amounts to 149.7 pounds per
person, applying the July 1, 1922, esti
mate of population. The per capita
consumption showed an increase of six
pounds over 1921 and pounds over
“Coupled with the decrease in the
exports and somewhat higher prices to
purchasers in 1922,” the department
report said, “these figures evidence a
satisfactory state of the home market
due doubtless to the prosperous condi
tion and better purchasing power of
the people generally.”
The average meat bill per person
In 1922, according to the estimates,
was made up of 61.4 pounds of beef,
7.3 pounds of veal, 5 pounds of mut
ton and lamb and 70 pounds of pork.
All classes of meat except mutton and
lamb showed increased consumption.
The largest increase was in beef, 3.6
pounds per person, while the Increased
consumption of pork was only slightly
less, 3.1 pounds per capita. Lamb and
mutton decreased 1.2 pounds per cap
The conversion of com into lard by
means of the hog is one of the major
Industries of the country, the product
of which goes to all parts of the
world, the department announced. The
67,050,745 hogs slaughtered in 1922
yielded more than 9,000,000,000 pounds
of meat and 2,333,000,000 pounds of
lard. This is the highest production of
lard on record, and as the exports, al
though considerable, were less than in
1921, it follows that the total consump
tion also was highest. The per capita
consumption, however, was exceeded
in 1916.

mEN bill
Many Elements Besides Organized La
bor Urge Tightening of the Exclu
sion Provisions—Legislators Not In
clined to Heed the Protests.
Washington. —Tlie bouse of repre
sentatives is about to give consider
ation to the immigration restriction
bill approved a day or two ago by the
house immigration committee. With
the feeling on this matter as it is to
day in the country, and especially in
congress, it is more than possible that
the bill will be enacted into law
Washington has felt for a long time,
possibly of course mistakenly, that
sentiment throughout the country has
been focusing in behalf of some plan
further to keep immigrants out of the
country. The pleas of the manufac
turing and industrial interests gen
erally to raise the bars have had little
effect on members* of congress because
of the pressure in reverse which has
been brought to bear by other inter
This immigration question Is rather
a delicate one to discuss. To give the
reasons for the demands for more dras
tic exclusion legislation means that one
must go into matters which many per
sons probably think had better be kept
under cover because of the danger of
arousing religious or racial animosi
The drive, if It so may be called, in
behalf of strengthening the exclusion
measure has been made not only by
the representatives of labor, who fear
wage cuts and a glutted labor market,
but by organizations of various kinds
and descriptions, some of them per
haps not altogether open in their man
ifestations of opposition to further ad
mission of the foreigners.
Elements for Exclusion.
The Japanese exclusion matter
stands by itself, and it needs no ex
planation. As for the rest of the pro
posed exclusion legislation, it has been
favored unquestionably by what may
be called the “America for Americans”
elements in the population; by organi
zations which say boldly enough that
there are too many Europeans of a
certain kind in this country; by most
of the officials of the great soldier
body, the American Legion, and un
questionably by a society which re
cently has had more publicity than its
garb would suggest that it seeks.
In Washington there are advocates
of the measure proposing increased
restriction rules who say that the op
eration of the new statute will have
the beneficent result of preventing a
further increase in the racial preju
dices which exist today, even if men
try to cover their eyes to the fact. The
advocates of the bill hold that the for
eigners who now are here can be as
similated after awhile if no great ad
ditional numbers of them are admitted.
The argument is that assimilation of
the foreigners here should be perfect
ed before assimilation is made impos
The feeling among members of con
gress is stronger today on this general
subject apparently than ever it has
been before. It is said that many
members of congress are also mem
bers of organizations which have been
looking with dismay upon the foreign
izing tendencies in this country. In
away when a vote comes on this immi
gration measure some of the members
of congress may vote as they would
have voted in meeting balls at home,
lodge meetings, if one cares so to put it.
Where Opposition Comes From.
Opposition to the legislation is to be
expected from a good many sources.
Steamship companies will object be
cause their directors seem to think
that the matter is one of vital impor
tance to their finances. Organizations
representing the various foreign na
tionals will object as they always have
objected, but objection from these so
cieties, some congressmen seem to
think will injure rather than benefit
the general cause of opposition.
It is of course only possible that this
tightening immigration restriction
measure can become a law at this ses
sion, but unlike other proposed legis
lation there seems to be a likelihood
that the next cong/ess will be as
strongly in favor of its enactment as
is the case with the present congress.
It seems to be the feeling here that
the liberals, progressives or radicals,
as they variously are called, are more
likely to be in hearty favor of the pro
posed legislation than their brethren
of the conservative and semi-conserv
ative ranks. There is nothing, how
ever, to show that members who might
pay attention ordinarily to the de
mands of certain kinds of great in
dustries will care in this particular
case to respond to their pleas.
The reports which have come from
organizations engaged in the work of
Americanization of the foreigners have
been in the main favorable, but never
theless Americanization is said to be
rather uphill work. The word is that
It cannot be done adequately so long
as the non-English speaking communi
ties in this country continue daily to
Increase In numbers.
Vacation Journeys Planned.
During the war and just after it the
congress of the United States was
pretty well represented in Europe by
individual member investigators who
wanted to find out “all about it,” and
to come back to tell the lawmakers
what they should do to help Europe.
Congress in all probability will have
a long vacation from March 4, and
now it is said that at least six con
gressional parties will start out to see
the world, but this time tlie members
will confine themselves to this side of
the Atlantic and to a few places in the
Pacific. Os course it is wicked to call
these expeditions “junkets.” but there
are some fearless ones who are will
ing to say that a .1 w of these inves
tigating and sight-seeing parties are
promoted and carried through as much
for amusement as for constructive
business purposes.
Little criticism is heard of one of
the proposed journeys afield, or rather
asea, for the intern'on of certain mem
bers in congress ' iterested in naval
affairs and of officials of tlie Navy de
partment is to take a ship bound for
southern waters and to witness the
maneuvers of tlie Atlantic and Pacific
fleets in tlie Caribbean sea.
It is the intention of another con
gressional investigating party to go to
Hawaii, there to look over the great
naval base at Pearl harbor and to
learn of the progress on the great army
fortifications which are intended to
protect the entrance to tlie harbor
from the sea. It is expected that this
party will “drop back” from Hawaii
to California to look over what is
known as tlie Alameda project. The
understanding is that the Mare island
base may be superseded eventually by
a new base at Alameda. If this
project ultimately is carried to con
clusion the improve 1 naval base in San
Francisco Bay i/ill represent a cost of
$150,000,000, and t the claim is made
that it will be worth the money.
Will Study Reforestation.
A committee of the United States
senate, it is understood, will travel
considerable distances in the western
and southern country to look into mat
ters relating to reforestation. There
always has been a reeling in congress
that some of the fo-estry problems
could be settled if reforestation were
practiced in those places which, after
the first forests have been removed,
cannot be used readily for agricul
tural purposes or for any purpose more
valuable than tree raising. Something
good, it is claimed, may come out of
this proposed trip of the senators.
There was a time years ago when
congressional parties went forth with
the members of their families in tow.
Government ships always were avail
able if there was enough of a business
tinge to the traveling proposition
seemingly to justify Uncle Sam in giv
ing the members ol the parties quar
ters on one of his transports. It is
only fair to say that on these trips
the members paid for board for them
selves and families while on the ves
sels, but of course their transportation
was free, and as Uncle Sam charges
very moderate boarding house rates
on his transports the trips didn’t cost
Many of the real junketing features
have disappeared frot these railroad
and ship voyages. There was much
criticism in the past of things that
were done, and as a result the plans
for tlie trips are now hedged about
with precautionary pecuniary arrange
ments, and congressmen can start out
without fearing such heavy broadsides
of criticism as were hurled at them in
the past.
Taft's Famous Journey.
Perhaps the most famous journey of
congressmen and others ever taken
was that which was known as the Taft
Philippine trip in the year 1904 or
thereabouts. There were a great many
members of congress who thought it
was only right—and perhaps it was —
that the lawmakers should know at
first hand what wf.s happening in the
Philippines, so with their families and
with a considerable number of friends
they started for the Orient under tlie
leadership of William Howard Taft,
who then was secretary of war.
This party not only went to the
Philippines, but to Japan, China and
Corea. A government transport was
provided, but everybody paid his board
bill. There were Republicans and
Democrats in the party in about equal
numbers, and inasmuch as there
seemed to be a general feeling that
congress ought to know something
definite about the East at that time,
there was not much adverse comment
from the press or the people of the
country on the plan of the voyage.
Os course the great trip of the com
ing summer will be that of President
Harding to Alaska. Everybody seems
to think that this journey is absolutely
essential if any attempt is to be made
legislatively and administratively *n
bring Alaska up to tlie proper produc
ing point.
Gives Impression of Sorrow.
Among the most interesting objects
of public attention in Washington just
now is the Lincoln memorial as il
luminated each night by electric
searchlight. By motorcar, bus line
and on foot, thousands of citizens view
the wonderfully beautiful spectacle
and the general verdict is, “You will
have to see it to appreciate it.”
As the classic structure stands out
against a dark background, its out- j
lines showing chiseled marble on
ebony, the building takes on an en
tirely different aspect from daytime
presentation. The scene arouses vary

shown by their exclamations and ut- i
The most pronounced impression it
makes upon tlie average observer is
one of inexpressible sadness. If an
inanimate thing can be said to breathe
spirit, the structure gives forth an al
most tangible exnression of r crow I

Bluefield, W. Va.—'The bodies of six

where the men were at work when the
explosion occurred. Afterdamp flood

Seventy-five men were at work in
the mine when its channels were
rocked by the blast, 3,200 feet from the
main opening. However, many of them
were *in other sections and were not
caught by the crumbling of the walls.
Os the thirty-eight entombed, twenty
seven only slightly injured were res
The force of the explosion tore
through to the surface, scattering tim

of several hundred feet. Tongues of
flame shot through these openings.
An overcharge of powder used in
blasting probably was the cause of the
disaster. W. A. Craven, superintendent
of the mine, said.

is a small mining town in Mercer
county, in the extreme southern sec
