The four and one-half months following April shows but seventeen which indicates that the number has fallen off almpst one4ialf. The death rate within the Inst four months shows it to be still less than. months previous. In the past four months there has been in the neisbborhood of ten. This shows that the rate has decreased again almost oncthlrd. The fact that the death rate In the past three months is lesii than«in the summer months is another startling fact, because heretofore there haa been more deaths reported in the win- Any Other time of tho year; George's, Howard ,or the Howard livery, who drives for a great' many of the fun era's, stated today that he had been in this particular business for the iiast six years and in that time he never knew of so few funerals as there have t)cen in the last ; thr?e months.

Kansas Uatod \Cor the po^ Makes Snnflower State a Baslness Center—Unparalleled Boom Is Kear. Chicago. Dec. 6.—Evidence direct from the farms, positive in nature, corroborates E. U. Harriman's statements made in New York yesterday that the country is on the threshold of a boom unparalleled in history. The evidence is in the form of statistics covering the producU of the nation for the year and they show that the farmers aro fairly wallowing In their wealth, that the vaults of the country banks are groaning under the heavy weight put upon them and that never in history has the farmer been In such a good position as he Is today. The statistics were gathered by C. R. Krwin. president of the advertising agency of Lord & Thomas, who for 3 number of years has collected figures to determine the pulse of the business of the country. Believing that the most accurate information could be obtained by going back to the soil itself, figuratively speaking, he has made it a practice to seek his iuforma tion from the farmers and stock raisers themselves, and from the editors of the farm piiblicatlons throughout the country. The great stable corn of Missouri la better this year than it has been In many a day, is the testimony of the Pmit Grower, St Joseph, Mo., and the further assertion Is made that tho season for ri|iening and gathering the corn has been ideal. Kansas sent word that Is astonishing tmth. In Kansas there Is 200 mll- llott dollars' worth of grain and other products • ready for the market and 16S mlllktn dollars In deposlu in the Kansas banks. The average for the United States Is a ration of one-third cash to the total of tann products and the allowing of Kansas made here tearks the state as one of the gigantic business centers of the nation and of the world. Other states. Iowa. Nebraska. Minnesota. Wisconsin, the Dakotas. the Pacific coast and Dixie land send the same stories, and the producers every where are happy and content MAGNATE SATS 0FFICUL8 WOULD HELP SUPPOBT PLANS.

Hill, president of the Great Northern Railway company, who was introduced to the Congress as "a wizard of transportation and qnc of the great est railroad builders In the world." Mr. Hill Created great enthusiasm among the 2,500 delegates by declaring that the railroads of the country would support cordially any proper plan for the development of the legitimate waterways of the United Slates. He produced figures to show that the traillc of the country had become so great and was Increasing so tremendously that It was beyond the physical power of the ralliroads to handle it. He made a most important and significant statement of the attitude of railroad men toward legislation which has been directed against rail carriers in America and declared that all the railroads asked was per-, mission to conduct their business in a proper way under honest treatment. The Missouri valley received substantial recognition in the election of directors by the rivers and harbors congress today. Heretofore the Missouri valley hks been represented by one director. L. M. Jones of Kansaa City. The congress re-elected Mir. Jones and named C. A. Cole of Sioux City as a new director. Mr. Cole is deeply interested in the Missouri river Improvement project.

The convention will conclude its work today by the adoption of resolutions incorporating its idea that a comprehensive national scheme for the Improvement of the Internal waterways of the country should be crystalized into law. BANK DIDN'T FAIL Report That IlnmbeMt National Closed Untme. W. A. Byerly of the Humboldt National bank phoned to the Register this morning relative to a rumor which was on the streets here yesterday to the elfect that the bank had cloved, owing to the failure of the Bank of Commerce at Kansai Cllv. The report grew out of the opinion that iho Bank of Commerce owned a controlling Interest In (he Humboldt bank. ' '•'W This is entirely erroneous. None of the men interested In the Bnnk of Commerce own any stock In the Humboldt Iwnk. In addition to this, the Humboldt Imnk had but 1120 on deposit In the Kansas City bank, show Ing that he rumor Is without foundation whatever. Lost night the aifalni and accounts of the Humboldt bank were gone over, showing It to be In excellent oondltion. and a statement to that effect is to be submitted to the Humboldt papers today for publication.

Mr. Hayashl. who announced that the plan of the Japanese government was closely to limit ail emigration to the United Spates and Canada.

On- eight counts the defendant' was acquitted. After the instmctiops of Judge Dana had been read tbiere was l>ut little doubt ^ that the state would secure a conviction on a large number of- counts as he ruled squarely against: the ooBtentions of the attorneys for the International that bat • one offense had been ^r«ff«Hlttfd The attorneys for the defense have given notice that they will file a motion for a new trial and if that is. denied then the case will be carried to the Supreme court If the Intem?- tional do^ not at once withdraw from business in Kansas, Attorney General Jackson will Institute civil proceedings to recover $100 a day l>enalty from the Harvester company for each day that It ooatinnes to do business in Kansas. However. It Is piottable lhat the company will stay In the state and ft^t the matter out Judge Dana may fine the Intema- tkinal from |100 to $1,000 on each count on which It has been convlctsd. so that the fine will range tran tt,- iOa to 142^000.
