SHORT TALK ON GOLD
311 nt Director Koberts Thinks
Stock Is Overestimated.
WHEEE MISTAKES HAVE BEEN MADE
Over-Eatimate Probably Between
$50,000,000 and $ 1 00,000,000
Estimating the Stock.
Washington, Aug. 4. Roberta, the
director of the mint. In speaking yes
terday of the probable modification of
the present estimate of the stock of
gold In the country, said: "Some modi
fication of the present estimate doubt
less will be made as the result of an
extendei Inquiry that is being made
by this bureau and by Mr. Muhleman,
of the New York sub-treasury, but the
reduction will be small as compared
with the stock. The original basis of
the treasury estimate is a computa
tion 'made by Dr. Llnderman, director
of the mint in 1S73. tiold was then
at a premium and not in general cir
culation, lie took the amount in the
treasury and in national banks and
added $io,Ou4).imh for circulation on
the I'aeitic coast and $10.00,()0 for
the holdings of other banks and
hoards, in all, $13..lHJO,U00.
How th Current Kstlniate It Made.
"To this has beu addd each year
the coinage and the imports of do
mestic coin, and subtracted the re-
coinage, the exports and an estimated
etui) for consumption in the arts. The
result Is the current estimate. The
gold in the treasury and in the nation
al banks comprise the only part of
the stock that can be actually counted.
At the date of the last reported state
ment by the national banks April 2U,
1UO0 their holdings were f l.",7t;9.S72.
The treasury holdings Alay 1 were
$4-t.9M9.37 1. the two Items aggregating
$tWJ,759.243. The estimate for May 1
was $1, 04.-J.fi23.il 7. which left $420,
000,000 to be accounted for as held by
state and private banks, trust compa
nies and in safes, pockets and hoards.
This is the sum subject to modifica
tion. Gold Carried Away by Travelers.
"Xo account has leen taken in the
past of gold carried out of the country
on personsof travelers. This
year the bureau has made a systematic j
effort to learn what this movement
amounted to by inquiries addressed to I
the steamship lines, money changers
at the principal ports, and our consuls
abroad. The tourist agency of Cook
& Sous receives from travelers from
$loo.c..O to $150,000 per year and turns
it Iii to the Bank of England. About
$75,000 per annum is melted at Geneva,
and in all a net loss of $000,000 to
$300,000 is Indicated. At the latter
rate in twenty-live years the total
would be $20,000,000, a sum that should
be taken account of.
COIN ISEU IN BUSINESS.
Melted bj Manufacturers, Jewelers and
Dentists and Other People.
"An effort has been made to arrive
at fie present consumptiou of coin by
manufacturers, jewelers, dentists and
others in the industrial arts. Inquiries
have been addressed to about 45,000
firms and individuals and replies have
been received from 70 per cent, of
them. The returns indicate a total
consumption of about $3,500,000 loio'n
per year. Prior to 1803 the bureau's es
timate was never less than this
amount, but from 1893 it has been
placed at $1,500,000. The reduction
eeuis to have been an error. An addi
tional allowance of $2,000.0" 0 per year
for seven years would require correc
tion of $14,000,000.
"Mr. Muhleman, of the New York
sub-treasury, has been a dllligent stu
dent of the subject for years, and is of
the opinion that owing chiefly to errors
made prior to 1885 the estimate has
been too large by perhaps $100,000,000.
He attacks Or. I.lnderman's original
estimate and argues that It was $29,
oo.OOO too high, and he has recently
nude an exhaustive investigation ,of
Imports and exports of coin and bullion
since 18.3. By checking these from
other sources of information be is led
to believe that at times bullion and
foreign coin have been reported as do
mestic coin which would carry error
into the estimates of coin stock. He
thinks these errors in reported exports
and imports may have increased the
estimates by as much as $4o,0(H),000,
"Mr. Muhleman s tables are very
elalKrate, and will require considerable
time for review. Some of his correc
tions doubtless will be accepted, and
the amount finally deducted from the
previous estimate, as a result of tba
revision, probably will be between $.0,
000,000 and $100,000,000. In my opin
ion there should be a much more ex
tended inquiry before the figures are
finallv fis:ed upon, as the result of this
investigation will be the basis of cal
culations for a long time to come.
"These changes spread over the es
timates for twenty-five years, and
chiefly prior to 1883, signify nothing as
to the available resources of the coun
try. They alter the calculations as to
the hidden hoards, but they are not a
part of the active stock and are nof
even available in time of need, for
hoards Increase instead of diminish at
such a time. Reductions do not alter
the figures for the great Increase in our
stock in recent years, but rather em
phasize it, for the additions are made?
larger In proportion of the total stockv
The estimates for the stock on Aug. 1
was $1,053,518,892, and if the entire
$100,000,000 was deducted the stock
would remain 00 per cent, above what
it was four years ago.

Bedford Street Methodist church at

Winter Wheat For Nt-liraska.
In the fall of 181K thirt.y-se.ron vari
eties of winter wheat were sown on the
station farm. Of these, all but three
varieties killed out ho badly that it was
not considered worth while to harvest
them. The three varieties that lived
through were Turkey lied. Big Frame
and Curroll. In tho fall of 1S0S there
were sown more than a hundred vari
eties, and only five came through the i
winter in good coi.dilion. Those just
mentioned wore three of the five. Last
fall forty-two varieties were sown, of
which seven did not germinate and
nineteen winterkilled. Tho same thieo
varieties were among tho best, but the
yields have not yet been ascertained.
In order to test tho relative merits
of the seed thus selected and that of
the samo varieties from some other
S-Ctions of the country, seed of the
Turkey Ued variety was brought from
the Ohio and Iowa experiment stations
and of the turkey from Kunea-. The
latter is very similar to the Turkey
lied grown here. Seod of the Currell
variety was also obtained from the
Maryland experiment station. None
of these did so well as tho Nebraska
grown varieties, with the possible ex
ception of the Kansas Turkey. Con
trary to expectations this wheat ma
tured earlier than tho Nebmska Tur
key II ?d. It did not lodge and was not
badly infected with rust. In those re
spects it was as good as the Nebraska
grown wheat. Both the Ohio and Iowa
Turkey Rad lodged and rusted badly
aud matured later than the Nebraska
Turkey Ued. The Currell from Mary
land made a ranker growth than the
Nebraska Currell, but lodged and
It is the aim of the experiment sta
tion to extend the area of winter wheat
culture over as large a portion of the
state as possible. To this end a very
laree number of varieties of winter
wheat have been tested by the station
during a period of several years. Those
strains of Turkey Hod and Big Frame
varieties that have been grown on the
station farm for several years have
proven themselves very hardy. Seed
wheat of either one of these varieties
will be sent out on application, free of
cost except transportation charges, as
long as the supply lasts, to parties liv
ing north of the Platte river aud also
to those west of the 100th meridian.

When this has been accomplished the dis

of the trouble. S. S. S. does, and no matter
how apparently hopeless your condition,
even though your constitution has broken
down, it will bring relief when nothing

necessary to heal the sore and nourish
the debilitated, diseased body.
