plenty here today, many of them men
who have watched the crows train,
and who believe that they know some
thing of the relative capacity of each.
who will not concur In these selec

winning the 'varsity race comes from

pronouncing such Judgment had scon

ed from the Associated Press boat last
evening and with unfavorable water
conditions, Wisconsin's 'varsity crow
kept the boat perfectly trim and sent
her along at a marvelous speed, with

There arc still those who believe that
Columbia, because of her wonderful

splendid chance for first place. But It
Is generally believed, despite protesta

crew have all Iminoved.
No matter whnt the critics may say
or how winners may ho picked for the
next lorty-elght hours, the fact le
malns that this varsity race will be
one of the most picturesquely exciting
events ever s'ecn in college aquatics.

In lr,H7, Harvard and Yale had made
up their differences and were anxious
to resume their old relations, but, as
Harvard would not break Its agree

Consequently there were two races heie

OUR TRADE IN

VALUE OF MERCHANDISE
For the Year of 1000 It Is Set Sown

Washington, June 30. A marked In
crease In the trade of tho Philippine
Islands during tho calendar year of
JliOO over the commerce of the previous
year Is set out In. a statement made
public today by the division of insu
lar affairs of tho war department. The
value of Imported merchandise, gold
and silver, for 1900 is set down at
J27,7C.",100. This, according to the war
department's statement, was the
greatest Importation for any single
year In the history of tho archipelago.
In IS'Jii the Imports amounted to
$20,440,074 In value, thus showing an
increase of nearly thirty-six percent.
In favor of 1900. According to an es
timate based upon data collected by
the British consul at Manila, tho ap
proximate value of Imports Into the
Philippines for IS95 was $7,015,000; for
1S9G, $9.L'92..")00. and for 1897, $9,120,000.
The total Imports from China and
Hong Kong for 1900 nmounted to $9,
5,44.1 and for 1S99, $9,0SI, 635.
It has been shown as regards tho
statistics of Imports Into the Islands
from tho I'nltcd States that they do
not include a large amount of mer
chandise that Is Imported Indirectly,
Including such staples as wheat llour,
meat produces, cotton manufactures
and many other articles. A large pro
portion of this trade Is recorded as
Imports from Hong Kong, which an:
undoubtedly re-exported from that
port to the islands.
Imports from 1000.
The Imports from the United States
direct for 1900 shows an Increase of
$S01,344 over those of 1S99, while the
imports from Hong Kong In 1900 show
a nateiial decrease from the estimate
figures of 1899.
This would lndlcatr, as the shipping
facilities in Manila harbor are being
Improved, direct shipments to Manila,
are Increasing and that thera Is a
corresponding decrease In the re-exportation
of merchandise from Hong
Kong to the Philippines.
The Imports Into the Philippines
from the United States direct In 1900
show an Increase over 1S99 of fifty
nine percent; from the United King
dom, 72 per cent; from Ciermany, 77
per cent., from France, 233 per cent.
The Imports from Spain show a de
crease from those of 1S99 of 23 per
cent. The total value of merchandise,
gold and silver, exported from the
Philippines during the calendar year
1900 amounted to $26,7:11,462 against
$18,273,3SS for 1S99 nnd an average from
1SS0 to 1891 of $20,326,961.
The exports to the United States de
creased from $4,040,233 in 1S99 to $2,
968,831 in 1900.

Havana, Juno 20. During the (onilug

discuss the electoral law. The project
submitted by the commission provides
only for the election of congressmen,
governors, state representatives, mayors
and cotincllmen. No agreement has
been been reached as to whether or not
to elect the president and senators by

The discussion of the electoral law
will undoubtedly open up un argument
