Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1890, Salem, Ohio THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. VOL. IL NO. 306. SVLfiM. OHIO, SATURDAY. DECEMBER 27. 1890. TWO CENTS. Of the American Economical Association. Opening Session Devoted to Reading of Papers of Technical Interest. Fraaldent Gives a Snr- T.y of Important Economic Oc- earrlnff In the United Dai-lug the iJMt Two WASHINGTON, Deo. fourth annual meeting of the American Eco- nomic Association was opened yesterday afternoon at Columbian University. The opening session was devoted to the re- port of the chairman of the committee on economic theory, Prof. J. B. Clark, of Smith College, and to papers of tech- nical interest by Prof. P. H. Giddings, of Bryn Mawr; Dr. Charles A. Tulle, of Amherst, and Miss Marietta Keys, of Mt. Holyoke. At the evening session General Francis A. Walker, president. the association, delivered the annual address. It was devoted to a survey of the most important economic develop- ments occurring within the United States during the last two years. The extraordinary growth of pseud-sociahstn, under the name of nationalism, he at- tributed to the fact that the masses of the people, alike among the more fortu- nate and tbe les? fortunate classes, have come to appreciate the supreme impor- tance of industrial relations; but have not yet learned by a careful study of hiitory and of the material conditions of human existence within what narrow limits exertions for the amelioration of mankind must necessarily be comprised. All these reforms now so defiant of established economic principles will sooner or later become recruits of the economic army. Meanwhile it is an immense gain to have the whole nation at school in political economy. Regard- ing the apparent growth of the single tax party the speaker expressed the opinion that economists were coming to take the view that something more of economic rent than the State has been accustomed to take, could advantage- ously be brought into the treasury. On the other hand, closer study of the sub- ject only brought greater conviction to practical politicians, of the utter hope- lessness of tho project in the face of the existing conditions. General Walker Spoke of the present financial crisis as the result of the fast tightening folds of a contracting money supply. In the lack of natural leadership we can hope that prudence may rule the hour, and that the instinctive conservatism of the American people rcay enable them to pass through this, perhaps the most perilous crisis in their financial history, without a wreck. The last topic touched was immi- gration. Not only the enormous in- crease of immigration but the manifest- ly lower characters of the recent comers, especially those from Eastern Europe, make the question one of urgency. Our firs; duty is to ourselves and our own descendants, our next is to help as far as we can in raising the con- dition of tho oppressed masses in Eu- rope. not necessarily to do this by receiving their overflow indis- criminately but mcsi of all by making this experiment of a free common- wealth of educated labor the greatest possible success. If it continued ad- mission of degraded peasants from the old world would interfere with this great work, we are called upon, not less as philanthropists than as patriots, to put a stop to it. HEAVY SNOW STORM. Railway Traffic Almost Stopped la Eastern NEW YORK, Dec. Tho predicted storm arrived on schedule and yesterday morning few and far between, and the cars were making poor work of it in spite of the fact that four horses wen trying to do the usual work of two.

The Bureau of the American Republics has infor- mation from Bogata that the Congress of Columbia has renewed the concession for the construction of the Panama Canal to Lieutenant Wyse, the agent of the canal company, who has been en- gaged at Bogata for more than a year trying to secure this privilege.

Railway Dec. seeas to bare Sg.Ti its striking Tce sKcauon on ;ae other iiaes andccided. Improvenient Noted In the Monetary Situation Growing More Satis- factory. NEW YORK, Deo. Q. Dnnn A Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: The "holiday trade was remarkably heavy hore, and ai nearly all other points good, which is by no means evi- dence that the tightness of the money market springs from any general em- barrassment of business or industry. The volume of payments through banki continues larijo, though but three pet cent larger than a year ago. Foreign trade is very heavy in spite of causes which were expected to insure a ma- terial decrease. Reports from other cities disclose uo important change in the condition of trade. Wholesale busi- ness naturally slackens and is quiet at this point in the year and the indisposi- tion to act is rather increased by the tardiness of collections. At Boston prospects are better for trade in woolen and cotton goods and some large lots of wool have been sold without change in prices. The demand for leather is fair. Conditions at oiber Eastern cities have not been essentially different, though at Pittsburgh Bes- semer iron has sold at the lowest price for the year, and all pig iron is at bottom prices. Manufactured iron is in fair demand, and rails unchanged. At points further west, expectation of im- provement after January 1 is general. At Kansas City wholesale trade is quite good. At Lincoln. Neb., business ex- ceeds that of last year. At Denver the demand for money is lighter, but at Salt Lake the money market is extremely close and the outlook unsatisfactory. At other points in the Northwest the monetary situation seems rather better. Keports from the South also indicate some improvement Manufacturers at Louisville are fully employed, though money is very close. Trade at Atlanta improves; at Galveston cotton receipts exceed last year's. New Orleans reports fair trade, larger receipts of cotton, the crop being there estimated at bales. Throughout the South tbe ficti- tious prices maintained last summer and fall for cotton u.tve caused some embar- rassment, being followed by the inevi- table decline as tbe magnitude of the crops became known. While the situ- ation of the iron and steel industry shows no improvement the fact that the closing weeks of the year are passing without any serious set-back gives en- couragement. On the wbole labor has never been more fully employed than in tho latter part of 1890. The monetary situation grows more satisfactory, bo- cause the trfiasury disbursements con- tinue and gold arrivals have given aid and the enormous excess of merchan- dise exports over imports is felt. INFRINGING. The Admnn Electric Railway Company Will Sue Other for Their ST. Louis, Doc. Adams Elec- tric Railway Company of St. Louis will shortly enter a suit against the Thom- son-Houston, theSprague. the Short and other electric railway companies whose systems are now in successful operation, for infringment of patents covering the principal of propelling cars with electricity as a motive power The claim upon which these proceedings are to be based is the official record o the Patent Office department in Wash ington, backed fcy legal opinions from the most eminent patent lawyers in this country to the effect tbat the Adams jompany holds the patent under which every successful electric railroad sys tern of the country is now being oper ated. Dnrlal of a NaTal Officer. NEW YORK, Dec. funeral ser- vices over the remains of Fred K. Poar 9on, a retired Commander of the Unitec States navy, who died on Tuesday o: heart disease, were held at his late resi- dence, in West Fifty-seventh street Fri- day morning. The parlors, though large, could hardly accommodate the people who came to pay their respects to the dead naval efBcer. The services were conducted br the Rev. Dr. Greer of St. Thomas cbuch. Among those present were Bradley Leo, Ogden Mills and General K F. Builer. The inter ment was at Woodlawn. Hank Inure WOONSOCKET, DL, Doc.

The ordinary inquiries concerning the popu- ation which are contained in tbe schedules furnished to the enumer- ators do not make any distinction between this and other classes of poo- )le, and for the purpose of detormin- ng the oxtont of certain known or al- eged characteristics of this people in the United States and comparing tbo result with similar statistics prepared abroad, a special schedule was prepared calling for details of ago, sex, conjugal condition, place of birth, occupation, etc., of each person in tbe family re- ported who was living December 31, 1889, and of certain details concerning marriages and deaths occurring in the family for the five years ending on that date. No effort was made to obtain complete returns from all the Jews in tho coun- try, nor to develop any concerning- religious or commercial questions, but merely to obtain data from a sufficient number of families who had been in tho United States five or moro years to afford some reliable deductions concern- ing the effect of residence under the conditions of life in this country as con- trasted with those elsewhere. The in- 'ry, resulted in the return of com file ted family schedules, embracing living persona; .and in these fami- lies there bad been marriages. births and deaths during tho five years ending tbat date. The social condition of the families is indicated to some extent by tbe number of servants kept by them and about two-thirds are reported as keeping onu or more ser- vants ,the families reported may be said to be in easy circumstances. The average of persons to eaoh family on December 31, 18351, was 5.T1 and the average annual number for five years covered oy these statis- tics was 5 47. The average annual num- of marriages per of total popu- much lower than the general but as against 18 to 2 1.000 in the Eastern States, and the average age at marriage is greater than among tho general population. The low marriage rate and the increased average age at marriage are the principal rea- for the low birth rate. The deaths reported for the five years give an avor- aga annual death rate of 7.11 por of population, being about half of tho average rate for the general population. Contrasting the birth and death rates for those of native born and foreign born parents indicates that the birth rate Is deoreasingand the death rate increasing with more prolonged residence in this country, but the general results indi- cate that the here retain many o the peculiarities which have boon noted among them in Europe.

Caul well, special agent of the General Lane Office, bas made a special report to Com missioner Goff of tbe "giant trees" in ttio Stockton and Visaiia land district.
