TltK HVSINESS SITUATION.
Brighter skies and moro cheering crop
prospects have measurably improved the
local business situation and increased the
fueling of growing confidence which has
been manifest for loveral weeks past in
all legitimate trading. Our banks report
money as unusually easy and the demand
for short time loans smaller than might
bo expected. Wholesale merchants are
moro cheerful over a brisker trade and
traveling men report a more stable de
mand for staple products from country
merchant * . From the east comes news
of a seasonable dullness in general trade
with speculative circles stillgreatly excited
over the collapse in Chicago speculation.
The sudden depreciation in prices has
had , if anything , a quickening effect up
on the movement of provisions for con
sumption and export , and will bo likely
to infuse still greater activity into the for
eign trade in grain as well as in hog
products as HOOH as confidence shall have
been restored to" the markets. In view
of ita probable benefit to legitimate trade
the downfall of the Chicago speculators
has awakened little sympathy in the
minds of business men whose affairs are
not involved in confusion by the miscar
riage of their Bchemes , and will bo hailed
with general satisfaction if it shall servo
to prevent the recurrence of similar
movements against the interests of con
sumers and legitimate traders. In spite
of those troubles in the west and
other disturbing elements in the
immediate prospect there is in general
a better feeling in trade circles , and
merchants are looking forward with
greater confidence and hopefulness to the
opening of the fall season. Manufacturers
ors are generally carrying light stocks
and buying cautiously , in expectation of
lower prices when supplies shall have ac
cumulated on the Hoahoard. The near
approach of the time for the now tariff
law to go into effect tends to influence
greater caution on the part of buyers , aa
manufacturers are still in doubt as to the
effect of the now rates of duty on the
future of the markets. The break
in the hog market reacted un
favorably upon corn and wheat.
As corn is the food basis of pork ( dear
corn making dear pork ) , a serious drop in
provisions is at once followed by a decline
in corn , and in times of speculative ox-
citomont. wheat sympathizes with it. The
immediate effect of the break in values
has boon to resist business for export , as
foreign orders are generally withhold
from a declining and well settled market.
Should the markets hold steady at the
reduced rates , however , or even improve
slightly , it is altogether probable that ex
port business will bo resumed on an in
A J'llOliAltLK COURT MARTIAL.
Has Crook disobeyed orders ? That ii
the question which is at once suggestoi
i after reading the Washington dispatchei
which treat of the disposition of the renegade
gado Apaches. Agent Wilcox telegraph
that the OhiricahuaB wore forced on tin
San Carlos reservation , and when th
telegram is brought to the attention r r
the Secretary of War ho declines to credi
it , saying that bo-had given "positive 01
tiers to General Crook to keep the rene
gades apart from the other Indians.
This looks decidedly threatening fo
the old Indian fightor. If Crook has dit
obeyed the orders of the war department
a court martial of laigo proportions
us looming up before him. Disobedience f
CO orders , in the eye of the army , is
or graver offense than embezzling publi
money , or wife desertion and fraudulei

Somewhat more or less than three
thousand college graduates have boon
turned loose on a cold and hcartlcos
world within the last tllroo weeks and
the close of the commencement season
will probably increase the number by a
third. The press , while noting this
item an a matter of news , is less inclined
than formerly to unfavorable comment
upon the college graduate. The gulf
that divides the college bred man from
other men grows narrower and nar
rower every year. As the college
curriculum becomes loss scholastic and
moro practical the college graduate takes
on the tint of his surroundings. With
less Latin and Greek and metaphysics
and more chemistry , mechanics , political
economy and engineering taught in our
great institutions of learning a largo class
of young men who would look upon the
old time seminaries as little less than
monasteries have been attracted to out
college balls. College education has
become popularized and college
men have naturally grown more
popular. The Buffalo Erprcss , ir
an ably written article on the subject
notes several illustrations of this change
The so-called learned professions hav
always boon recruited to some exton
i from college men , but never to so largi
an extent as now. There are few broadminded
minded men of to-day who do not admi
that college training is a distinct julvan
tago and not a disadvantage in any o
those professions. But aside from theol
ogy , law , and medicine , college men ar
asserting the advantages of thci
training. The young man who ha
maintained a good character an

o Ancnt the remarks in this mornjng's

papers about assisted pauper im
t migration , it occurs to mo to
ask who is a pauperOf ? course
the word means a poor man. In that
< sense a vast majority of the people of
these United States are descended from
paupers. Is the invitation that we , as n
nation , hold out to the poor and op
pressed of other lands merely a glitter
ing generality ? The newspapers inform
us that such and such a cargo of immi
grants brougnt a largo sum of monoj
with thorn , which would bo added to the
x- wealth of the nation , as well as their bone
xng and sinew. Arc wo about to change

d- If an able-bodied man , in Ireland 01

ho the latter actually choosing industry
