Tha Flurry In Wheat Has Had IJttla
Effect In the Country Cieneral Healthy
ComlltAon of All Manufactures
Fallaros for the Week.
New Tork. June 3. Tt. Q. Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade says:
More far-reaching than any change
during the last week, if really warrant
ed by facts, is the continued rise In the
prices of wheat and cotton. Ileal scarc
ity of either would affect all business.
Happily there Is still room to hope that
acts of Injury are greatly exaggerated,
although there has been some evidence
during the week that both the great
crops have suffered more than at first
appeared. Other changes are almost
all favorable and some highly encour
aging. Labor troubles are clearly less
threatening. Monetary conditions ar
satisfactory and the substantial In
crease In the commercial demand Is a
good sign. Kxchanges through the
clearing-houses have been greatly In
flated by speculation, and at this time
last year were cut down by the coal
strike and toward the end of May, 1SS3,
greatly reduced by bank failures, but
for the week exceed last year's by 19
per cent and fall only 5.6 per cent below
those of 1S93. while the dally average for
May Is C6.9 per cent larger than last
year, but 7.1 per cent less than In 1S93.
Wheat Is largely supported by publlo
buying, and the purchasing orders from
farming regions are supposed to Indi
cate an opinion of the yield. Yet wheat
comes forward freely, as it would not
at current prices If a short crop were
assured, and western receipts for tha
month have been 5,944.574 bushels,
against 5.5-5.258 last year. North At
lantic exports reflect increased haste to
buy abroad, amounting in four weeks,
flour Included, to 6.183.420 bushels,
against 9,716.097 last year.
Cotton continues strong because It Is
believed there will be much reduction
In yield per acre as well as In acreage.
No estimate based on definite informa
tion puts the decrease In acreage at
more than 13.5 per cent, which, with a
yield per acre equal to last year's, would
mean a crop of S.4O0.O0O bales.
The Iron manufacturer Is gaining rap
Idly, and the average of prices, which
had fallen Feb. 1 to 54.1 per cent of the
prices In October, 1S30, has now risen
to 59.1 per cent, most of the advances
having been in May. It is believed the
wage question will be settled at Pitts

ment regarding the foreign policy of

that French national interests were
subordinated to the Interests of other
powers. lie explained that the part
which France took In the European
representations to Japan was dictated
by the interests of France, In view of
her position in Indo-China and the pro
tection she owed to French religious
missions In China. France could not
see the Independence of China menaced
by a permanent Japanese occupation.
If the empire of China fell or was rude
ly shaken French Interests would sure
ly suffer from the consequent disorder

evening were: Ex-United States Sen
ator George F. Edmund. ex-Comptroller
of the Currency William L
Trenholm. Congressman Michael D.
Harter, of Ohio, ex-MInlster to Russia
Charles Emory Smith, and Joseph
Mr. Edmunds said the sound money
question must be decided by political
action, not party action. The speaker
discussed the variation in value of the
two metals. "If any faith can be put in
human experience," he said. "It ought
to teach us that w cannot make a
given amount of silver worth any more
when it is printed at the mint with the
stamp of the United States than it was
before. If the last congress had passed
on March 3, the last day of its session,
what is now vociferously demanded by
the free coinage people, every owner
and producer of silver bullion would
take his ounces of silver to th; mint
worth 63.48 cents and get $1.29. And
having got more than two silver dol
lars for his ounces of silver, he would
come to the worklngman to whom he
owes for labor and say: If I had bought
It in metal It would have taken ten
pounds; but I have taken it to a benfi
cent United States office and had it
stamped and you must take five pounds
of it M
Ex-Comptroller Trenholm said: "By
general admission the gold Idea and tha
silver Idea are Irreconcilable. A decis
ion as to which Is the right one can
only be reached by reasoning predicated
upon the facts and guided by logic. Tho
principle of a definite and unchange
able monetary unit guided us to
resumption In 1879. and since then it has
secured for us ultimata safety In all tha
vicissitudes of business and all tha
commercial and financial panics that
have swept over our country."
Congressman Harter argued that an
abundance of money did not always
prevent commercial and business de
pression. On the contrary, he urged,
some of our financial panics had coma
at a time when money was redundant.
Charles Emory Smith spoke on "The
Mrs. Notion's Leave of Abtence.
Omaha, May 20. I desire to state
that Mrs. Nbtson secured leave of ab
sence from her school in August before
6he had ever seen Mr. Corbett or com
municated with him at all. After his
election 6he asked me to write him a
letter in her behalf. At that time she
distinctly told me that he had never
promised to appoint her as his deputy,
but that she most earnestly desired the
position, and I inferred from what she
said that 6he thought she had earned it
from the party. I have it from the
gentlemen themselves that she told
two others precisely what she told me
that Mr. Corbett had never promised
her the deputy ship. From all her con
versation with me, it appeared that she
simply hoped to induce him to appoint
her, although he had made no promise
Mr. Corbett was the choice of the
people of this state, is filling' an im
portant office with credit to himself
and to the advantage of the schools of
the state. There is certainly nothing
in this matter which should call for his
condemnation or for the withdrawal
from him of public confidence.
A. P. Marble,
Superintendent of Omaha Public
Lixcolk, May 20. I entirely concur
in Superintendent Marble's conclu
sions. From all the information ob
tainable, there certainly seems a strong
injustice in attempting to make Super
intendent Corbett at all accountable
for Mrs. Nottson's death.

CrUp Faxors Free Coinage.
Atlanta, Ga., May 30. Speaker Crisp
puts a quietus on the discussion of his
views on the financial question in the
following card given out for publica
tion: "Ever since I gave consideration
to the question I have been a believer
In and an advocate of the free and un
limited coinage of silver."
