character, for Superintendent Porter
states that, although the bulletin has
been issued several weeks, no officer of

NEBRASKA STATE NEWa
An exhaustive review of Nebraska's
commercial and financial conditio ia a
late number of the Omaha Bee, shows
a remarkable development of the state.
The most important phase of the ex
hibit is the showing of deposits ia the
state and national banks, which reach
the aggregate of 850,507.043, or 847 per
capita, showing that in spite of the
failure of crops in the western part of
the state last year and low prices for a
series of years, the people are in ex
ceptionally good financial condition,
with almost enough cash deposit to
liquidate tho entire farm mortgage in
debtedness of the state. The popula
tion of the state in 1867 was 122,000, and
in 1890 over 1,900,000. Ia 1868 the as
sessed valuation was 832,000,000; tho
actual value in 1891 is 81,583, 160,300.
The grain product of 1874 was 18,000,
000 bushels. In 1889 wheat alone
reached 16,836,000 bushels, and the yield
of corn was nearly 150,000,000 bushels,
ana oats 30,000,000. The estimated
yield for this year in all crops is greater
than ever before.

THE COUNTRY'S TRADE.
Mr Active aad Rii

Nbw York, July 1. R. G. Dan's
weekly review of trade says:
Basiaesa clearly grows somewhat
ore active. At eastern cities there is
noticed more demand for manufactured
goods, with larger sales for materials.
Ia the west trade is enlivened by the
large yield of winter wheat already
harvested and by the very bright out
look for other crops. At the soath.
however, thoagh crop advices arc favor
able, no improvement appears in busi
ness, which is duller than usual and at
some points is pronounced unsatisfac
tory. The general confidence ia strength
ened by the f aaacial news from En
rope, which indicates that disturbance
of the aroaey market from that quarter
need not sow he feared, and by the
change ia the foreign trade of this coun
try, which points to a material redac
tion of balances payable abroad in
specie. Imports at new York have
sharply declined since July 1, amount
ing to about &4.3O0.00O, or IS per cent
less than for the same week last
year. On the other hand, exports of
domestic products at this point show
an increase thus far this month of
13,324,009, or nearly 33 per cent, in
comparison with the same week last
There is an increase in the production
of pig iron almost to the unprecedented
figures of last year. The sudden in
crease in production is not in all re
spects a favorable symptom. Ho cor
responding improvement in the demand
for manufactured products is yet seen
and the stocks unsold at only a part of
the furnaces are now recorded as
amounting to about 4b0,000 tons, show
ing a very large increase, particularly
in coke iron. Unless demand rapidly
improves the market must soon weaken
so far as to test severely tho ability of
some of the concerns to continue pro
duction. Reports from other cities are gener
ally hopeful. Some improvement in
the demand for goods Is seen at Boston.
Prospects are considered brighter at
Philadelphia. In spite of the usual
dullness of the season, an improving
tendency is seen at Buffalo, and lake
shipping revives at Cleveland with a
larger demand than a year ago. Orders
for clothing are good at Cincinnati and
the retail in dry goods is brisk. At De
troit manufactures move very fairly
and at Milwaukee trade is helped by
improving crop prospects. Receipts of
wheat dressed beef, wool and hides at
Chicago show a great increase and new
wheat comes in liberally, 85 per cent
of it grading No. a. The clothing
and shoe trades show a large in
crease over last year, though in dry
goods the trade shrinks a little. At St
