TO REORGANIZE ATTORNEY
Bill Now Being Drafted Under the
Personal Supervision of Mr. Brown
Is Said to Have the Backing of
A bill is now being drafted under
the personal supervision of Attorney
General Brown, which is said to have
the backing ot° Governor Brumbaugh,
for the reorganization of the Attorney
General's Department, which is intend
ed to have one general legal force for
the Commonwealth. At present the At
torney General and three assistants
comprise the State's legal foree, the
salaries aggregating $35,000. But, out
side of this, there is special legal help
for various departments that cost the
State in the neighborhood of SIOO,OOO
in the past two years.
These extra counsel are attached to
t!he Dairy and Food, Health, Mining,
Fish, Game. Education, Insurance and
Other branches of the government. It is
eontemplated, by creating a distinct
legal staff, to provide the Attorney
General with a force that will have
charge of all legal matters of every
branch of the government, oue that will
devote its full time to the affairs of
State instead of a few prescribed or
•special duties. The reorganization was
tirst suggested in the report of the
Economy and Efficiency Commission by
\Harry S. McDevktt, the chairman.
Mrs. Johnson Burled
The fuueral of Mrs. Charles Johnson,
wife of Insurance Commissioner John
son, took place this afternoon at Nor
nstown. and out of respect to the head
of the department the offices were I
closed. The attaches sent a beautiful I
floral tribute for the casket.
After More Properties
The Capitol Park Commission will
meet to-morrow for the purpose of tak
ing over some more properties in the
tighth ward. The fact that the Hiekok
property has been taken over has led
a number of those who wehe holding j
back to come to the front to listen to
The Commission's proposition, and it is
expected that there will be no difficulty
hereafter in securing all of the remain

Governor Brumbaugh will this even

Want Better Light
Th t » lighting system in some of the
departments on Capital Hill have been
found to be inadequate and in many ;
eases desk lamps are required in order
to get sufficient light to transact bu?i ,

ment is now engaged in installing a new
system over the desks in the book-1

will fill the nee? for good service.

VALUE OF SILK OUTPUT IN
AMERICA GROWS RAPIDLY
Jump* From 941,000,000 to «a 00,00©.-
000 In Thirty-FLR* TMM —lncreased
Imports of Raw Material and Rapid
Growth in Domestic Manufacture
Washington, D. C., Feb. 23.—The silk
manufacturers of the I'nited states in
the .thirty-live years since. 1880 have
increased the value of their output from
$41,000,000 to upwards of $200,000,-
000, have consumed in that time about
450,000,000 pounds of raw material
and have increased their proportion of
the domestic consumption of silk goods
from a little over onenhalf the total in
1880 to more than four-fifths iu 1910,
the latest year eovered by the reports
of tlie government.
The tiscal year 1914 surpassed all
previous years in the quautity of raw
silk imported intX, this country, the
total for that year, according to the
figures of the Bureau of Foreign Do
mestic Commerce, Department of Com
merce, being 34.500,000 pounds, against
32.000,000 in 1913, 13,000.0U0 in
1900, 2,500,000 in ISBO and a half
miHion in 1870.
This rapid growth in imports of raw
silk is reflected in the rapid expausion
in the product of domestic silk manu
facturing establishments, the value
thereof rising steadilv from $12,000,-
000 in 1870 to $41,000,000 in 1880.
$87,000,000 in 1890. $107,000,000 in
1900 and $197,000,000 in 1910. The
importation of silk manufactures has
been conversely affected and the value
of silk goods imported last year, $35,-
4 55,000, is less than the total recorded
thirty years ago, and substantially the
same as that of sixty years ago.
Japan supplies a large and increasing
proportion of the raw silk consumed in
American factories. Ten years ago she
furnished more than half of the total,
while last year her share was nearly
three-fourths. Of the 12.631,000
jounds of raw silk imported in 191>4,
6.691,0u0 pounds were from Japan, 3,-
355.000 from China, and 2,095,000
from Italy. In 1914 there were import
ed 28,500.000 pounds of raw silk iu
skeins reeled from the cocoon or re
reeled, exclusive of waste, and of this
amount Japan's sfaare was 20,196.000
pounds against 5.927,000 from China,
and 1,997.000 from Italy. It is inter
esting to note that a considerable part
of this increased importation ot' raw
silk from Japan is paid for by Amer
ican cotton. In 1904 we exported to
Javan 23,000,000 pounds of raw cotton
and in 1914 nearly 177,000,000
Of the $35,500,000 worth of silk
manufactures imported in the lust fiscal
year $12,232,000 worth, or more than
one-third, consisted of fabrics woven
iu the piece; $5,752,000 spun silk or
seha; pe yarn; $4,246,000 wearing ap
parel; $4,351,000 laces and about $3,-
000.000 each consisted of ribbons,
and of plushes, velvets and other pile
fabrics. In addition over $4,000,000
worth of artificial silks, mostly yarns
and threads, for use in domestic fac
tories. were imported.
France supplied over one-half, Japan
one-fourth, and Switzerland one-eighth
of the silk fabrics imported. Of the
silk laces and embroideries imported
France furnished over three-fourths. Of
the plushes and velvets imported we
bought $1,712,000 from France and
$1,056,000 from Germany out of a to
tal of $3,025,000 last year. Switzer
land ranks next to France in- the supply
of ribbons, their respective shares being
$1,136,000 and $1,830,000 out of a
total of $3,112,000. The silk clothing
imported into the United States is
largely from-France, imports therefrom
totaling $2,848,000. as compared with
less than a half million dollars' worth
from England or Japan, a quarter mil
; lion from Germany and about $109,000
1 from Switzerland.
The customs revenues on imported j
silk manufactures in the fiscal year j
1914 aggregated $16,704,000, equiva- \
lent to 4S per cent, ad valorem, against I
$13,955,000, or 52 per cent, ad valorem !
in 1913. t'nder the present tariff law j
the rich man's silks cost him more and'
the poor map °s silks cost 'him less than
formerly. The law changed the rate of
duty from $3 per pound and upward on
silk goods to 45 per cent, ad valorem.
Thus a 32-ounce bolt of silk containing,
say twenty yards, and worth $2 at the
foreign port of shipment, which for
merly paid $6 duty, now pays only 90

GRAND OPERADROWNS THE
RACFIIE AT THE OSPHEUM
Omar Company Splendidly Renders Se
lections From Verdi—Among Oth
er Performers on Bill Is Bear on
Ragtime is plentiful, as usual, on the
bill which opened at the Orpheum yes
terday, but the grand opera in the
closing act completely drowns it. The
musii which the Omar company pro
vides is of the sort seldom heard by
vaudeville patrons, but always enjoyed
when it is heard, for it is the music
of all time.
The act is in four scenes, and selec
tions are given from Verdi's "II Trov
atore'' and "Rigolctto." Miss Kath
leen Nordy, dramatic soprano, in the
role of Leonora in the tower scene, has
a wonderful voice, which blends well
with that of H. C. Svlvers, tenor, as
ilanrico. The closing seehe, with the
splendidly harmonious singing of the
principals and chorus is a finale of the
sort which one wishes every Orpheum j
show could provide, which arrangement
is. of course, out of the question.
Skating Bear a Novelty
The skatiug bear is surely a novelty.
The beast wears roller skates and keeps j
on its hind feet very successfully. It j
is graceful fur a bear, although its un- !
avoidable awkwardness is a pleasing \
part of the performance.
Speaking about animal acYs, there !
i are Hoey and Lee, who persist in call- j
| ing each other monkeys and do their :
, best to act the parts. Their antics are
!of the usual comedian variety. Their i
I popular song parodies are good.
The Wille brothers.do stunts in equi- j
; librium which are leally remarkable.
!If anybody in the audience is not
j forced to hold his breath at times;
during the act, it must be some ir- j
responsible fellow in the gallery who
is himself out of harm's way and does
not care what happens. Occupants of
orchestra seats are very noticeably
nervous during the performance.
Milton Pollock and company, in
"Speaking to Father." have the big
comedy act of the bill; Harry and Eva
Puck are pleasing in songs and dances.
! and Augusta Glose is a clever enter
• tainer. even if most of the applause
j does go to her accompanist, a most
j skillful pianist.
