WASHINGTON, Nov. 8. — Secretary Rusk has presented to the president his annual report as secretary of agriculture. The reports opens with a general expression of congratulations upon the outlook for agriculture, and calls attention to the specially noticable feature regarding the crop values of the present year. They are so well sustained in the presence of abundant yields, that the secretary estimates the probable increase in the value of agricultural products for 1891 over 1890, at not less than $700,000,000. Reviewing our exports and imports of agricultural products, Secretary Rusk states that during the first three months of the present fiscal year, Our Exports in Cereals alone have aggregated in value over $79,000,000, adding that the indications now are that the sales abroad of the surplus from our farms Avill, during the present year, largely exceed those of an> previous year. He notes the increase by some $28,000,000 in the imports of agri cultural products during the first ten months under the present law by com parison with the same period during tin last year of the old law, but empha sizes the fact that the increase is con fined largely to articles not competing with home products, such as sugar, tea coffee, etc. At the same time he state: that the change in rates has checked th< importation of prS&ucts which may b produced at home. Regarding American Pork. The secretary, in speaking of the withdrawal by the governments of Germany, Denmark and Italy of the prohibition against American pork, expresses his high opinion of the president's personal interest in the matter, without which, he says, this grand result could never have been attained. He devotes considerable space to the review of the worn of the bureau of animal industry. Pleuro-pneumonia ha regards as quite iiiidor control, and limited in territory to two or threa counties on Long Island and in New Jersey, over which a thorough quarantine is exercised. He earnestly recommends increased appropriations to extend meat inspection to all applicants. Artificial Kiiiii. Of the rainfall experiments, the secretary states briefly that they have been made, but that as regards the production of rain he has no data yet at hand which would justify him in expressing any questions on the subject. In concluding his report he indicates that from the time he assumed the reins of office he has devoted his personal attention to a general enlargement of the scope of the work of the department in the interest of practical agriculture and especially to the extention of the market for the disposal of the surplus of our great staple crops, including the cereals and onr vast animal products, and the enlargement of our productive capacity so as to achieve the gradual substitution of home grown for imported products, and to bringing the department into such close relations with the fanners as would acquaint them with its work and inspire them with confidence in its ability to serve them, and forcibly impress upon the officers of the department themselves the wants and conditions of the tiller of the soil. claim of Ohio that irregularity in the boundary line between that state and [tidiana gives to the latter state twelve miles of territory properly belonging to the Buckeye state. Superintendent Mendenhall, in speaking of the matter, said he believed the boundary line was not twelve miles o\\i of the way as claimed. While in Ohio he had heard that nearly all the territory in dispute was Democratic in politics, and that if it went into Ohio it would make Indiana surely Republican. Governor Campbell had denied to him that the agitation was due to political motives and had showed him letters from people of both parties who were anxious to have the boundary dispute settled. Professor Mendenhall added that he felt certain there was no politics in it. In conclusion he said that he thought it was a very good thing that this boundary dispute had arisen, for it had shown that the botindary marks between Ohio and Indiana were almost entirely obliterated and that if the present examination had not been made there might have been no end of trouble in the future. The disputed land includes the cities of Fort Wayne, Richmond and Union City. Professor Mendenhall says he has not looked into the report that if Ohio's claim is correct, Indiana may ask for a slice of land twelve miles wide off the eastern portion of Illinois, including the $2,500,000 stock yards as well as the present site for the world's fair.
