The second rccurronco in Boston ot
'Merchants' week , " an institution for
irotnotlng the commercial interests ot
Imt city which had its origin there ,
closed last Saturday. As it has boon
> reposed to adopt this plan In Omaha
, ho results of Boston's experience will
> o intorostine. Wo infer from what is
aid by Iho Advertiser ot that city that
vhilo these have not been altogether
liscournglng they wore not tronornlly
vhat was hoped for. Ono of the features
of the plan is to call in traveling sales
men to entertain visiting customers ,
nnd the Advertiser remarks that doubt-
ess in many instances the expense
hus incurred , and the consequent fall-
ng off of the regular trade , Is not coun-
orbiilancod by the returns from orders
akcn direct during the week. But this
feature is not absolutely essential , for ,
although visiting merchants would find
.t . pleasant to moot familiar faces , It Is
really desirable that they shall bo
, hrown more closely into contact with
the heads of firms nnd cordial relations
established between principals. There
s no reason why the visiting merchants
could not bo quilo an well taken care of
u the absence of the traveling sales
men , these being left free to can
vass among the merchants who should
not accept the privileges of "mer
chants' week. " It is quite probable ,
.horoforo , that if it is decided to con
tinue the plan in Boston the feature of
calling in salesman will bo largely done
iway with as involving an unnecessary
But even the somewhat disappointing
results do not , In the opinion ot the
Advertiser , go to prove that merchants'
wcolc , as an institution , is a failure. It
remarks In its wider conception it is
not primarily to bo considered as a
season for booming trade. Its chief
purpose is rather to create among out-
jf-town rotall merchants a stronger
interest in the market from which
they buy , "by personally mootIng -
Ing the heads of the wholesale houses
and by seeing for themselves that which
they cannot appreciate by inspecting a
drummer's samples. " To the average
retailer , says the Advertiser , a piece of
cloth , or a bag of coffee , is a commodity
merely , and quality and price being
equal , ho buys of the drummer who has
won his confidence without much re
gard to what city ho represents. The
influence of "Merchants' week" tends
largely to dispel this indifference , ana
It has been demonstrated in the experi
ence of many Boston houses that it has
The conclusion of the Advertiser is
that the results thus fur experienced by
the several trades are such as to war
rant the belief that increasing benefits
will accrue from its continuance , with
such modifications in the detail of its
management as are shown by experi
ence to bo desirable. Having the ex
perience of Boston to guide them , the
merchants of Oainha can have little
difficulty in determining whether or
not it is desirable to try hero this novel
expedient for promoting trade.
Not very long ago there was a gen
eral complaint of the impending deca
dence of banking. It was repre
sented that the national banking sys
tem especially was in a rapid decline ,
and that unless congress promptly did
something to enable the system to exist ,
particularly in the matter of providing
a now basis for circulation , it must soon
succumb. Senator Sherman and other
cool and clear-headed financiers pointed
out that there was no such danger im
minent , and statistics show the accu
racy of their judgment.
The tinier/can / Jiankcr presents some
interesting statistics regarding the
growth of banking , from which it ap
pears that while the banks have been
losing on ono side ono hundred and
eighty-five millions of their circulation ,
they have boon gaining on the other
side three hundred and twenty millions
of deposits. "In other words , " says
that publication , "tho beneficent com
pensative law of deposit banking has
boon at work. For every ono hundred
dollars lobt in circulation tlio banks
have augmented their volume of
banking power by ono hundred
and seventy-three dollars of now
deposits. The creative natural laws of
deposit-banking have increased the
loaning power and elHciont force of our
banks In the productive work of the
country by sovonty-throo per cent in
this movement alone. " It is , there
fore , not u matter of wonder that the
national banking system has continued
The extent of this growth is shown in
the fact that there are now thrco thou
sand two hundred and eight banks ,
loaning more than seventeen hundred
million dollars , against two thou
sand ono hundred nnd thirty-two
banks in 1831 , loaning loss
than tvrolvo hundred million del
lars. Witft the growth of national
banks there has also boon an increase
of all the other banks of every sort
throughout the country. During last
year nine hundred nnd ninety-four
now banks wore created , while for the
present year to April 30 the total num
ber of banks organized , national , state
and private , was four hundred and
six , against throe hundred and forty-
seven for the corresponding period of
lust your. It will thus bo sooji that the
predictions of the prophets of evil have
not boon vorlflod but on the contrary
are shown to hare bean baseless ,
unless it bo assumed that the
capital which hus entered so largely
into banking enterprises is going
blindly to destruction. In tlmo congress
will bo culled upon , if the national sys
tem is to bo maintained , to make pro
vision for continuing it by providing anew
now basis of circulation , and when that
time Is reached , the question will bo ono
of commanding importance. Just at
present it is not generally so regarded.
The statistics of the growth of national
ban lew would seem to indicate that there
is no lack of confidence that congress
will find a practicable way'of continu
ing the system with a just regard for
all the interests involved.
WK are in rooolpt of the Los Angoloa
Tribune containing comparative figures
of the cost of projected improvement
in Omaha and Los Angeles for the
prea ut year , from which this city in
nado topponr at somewhnt ot a dis
advantage. The Tribune quotes the
conservative figures given some time
slnco In TltK Bl'.u , which place the
) rejected Improvements for the cur-
ont year nt n little loss than ulno
nllllon dollars , and follows with a sbato-
nontof what Los Angeles Is promised
at a cost of over thirteen million
lollars. Omaha is not the least
) lt onvlous ot the enterprising
California city. There Is no rivalry of
ntorcsts between them , and each can
ogurd the progress and prosperity of
the other with the heartiest satlstnc-
ilon. But there can bo no impropriety
n suggesting to the Tribune that had it
> con as conservative as Tin : Bui : in
> rosontlng the llguroa ot projected tm-
> rovomonts It would have boon com
piled to reduce the total by several
nllllons. Wo stated the amount rea
sonably certain to bo expanded for im
provements this year , while it is obvl-
ous that our contemporary has , in at
least several cases , given the full
estimated cost of improvements which
will bo distributed over two or three
voars. For example , the Los Angeles
; able company pontomplatos laying
forty-rsovon miles of track , which with
equipment and engine houses it is esti
mated will cost four million dollars ,
mil this amount heads the Tribune'1 s
showing of the aggregate sum to bo ox-
> ondcd for improvements this year.
Los Angeles can bo congratulated if it
ias forty-seven miles of cable road
within the next three years , and the ox-
laiulUuro for this improvement
in the present year will very
.ikoly not exceed one-third of the esti
mated total cost. So as to some of the
other projected improvements , while n ,
number of thorn are already possessed
jy Omaha and have boon paid for. Wo
right cordially congratulate Lo3 Ango-
, cs upon its enterprise , prosperity and
progress , but it must not boast indis
creetly. It Is yet a long way behind
Dmaha , nnd will have to do sotna very
jrisk marching to catch up , if that bo
possible under any circumstances.
Tim statements of representatives of
the Iowa roads show pretty clearly that
these roads are not solely to blame for
the lack of stock shipments to South
Omaha from the east. The trouble Is
nearer homo. First and foremost is the
exorbitant bridge toll of the Union
Pacific. One dollar a mile for six miles
of switching is virtually prohibitory.
Iowa stock shippers are not in the busi
ness for thi'ir health. If they cannot
reach Omaha on terms equal with other
markets , the city cannot hope to secure
their trade , With young and energetic
markets springing up at various points
in that state , without bridge tolls to re
tard their growth , Omaha will find it
impossible to establish n permanent
stock trade with Iowa unless substantial
Inducements in rates nnd prices are as
sured. The first essential is u reduc
tion of bridge tolls. Having scoured
that , the managers of the Stockyards
should send agents into Iowa and de
monstrate to shippers that the Omaha
market is the most profitable place tp
deal. This is ono way to pecuro the
coveted business. Prompt action and
loss complaining H necessary.
IT WILL cause not a llttlo surprise to
learn ftom the statistician of the agri
cultural department that outside of
cotton , tobacco , meats , Hour , butter and
choose , all other commodities together
arc about three per cent of the exports
from this country. With respect to
corn , Europe docs not take one-half of
the yield of any one of our corn produc
ing1 states. This would indicate that

Missouiti passed a bill recently mak
ing option trading in grain a mis
demeanor. In other words , futures in
corn , wheat or oats can not bo bought
or sold unless the parties own the grain
nnd can make a bona fide transfer. Last
year the actual transactions in grain
aggregated something like forty million
bushels , while options for the same
grain wore traded to the amount of ono
hundred and fifty million bushels. It
is safe to predict that the law will re
main a dead latter in St. Louis.
IN comparison with the mineral pro
duction of the United States , Canada
makes an insignificant exhibit. The
government has just issued an ostimute
of the mineral wealth of the Domin
ion for 1888 and places its vuluo at six
teen and one-half millions. This is
equal to about one-thirtieth of the value
of the production from the American
mines for the corresponding period.
TIIK right of suffrage extended to
women in Omaha to vote for members
of the school board , does not include
the right to vote for the issue of bonds
or the expenditure of money for educa
tional purposes. That is a distinction
evidently which the lady who offered
hsrhnllot'iit the school bond election
hud not clearly defined in her mind.
JT is said that the Union Pacific rail
road paid tuxes In 188S on its main line
to un amount thirty per cent in excess
of that of 1887. On the Kansas division
in 1888 over ono hundred thousand dollars
lars was paid In excess of the am ouut of
taxes met the year previous. There is
just a whit ot encouragement in this
statement. The question is , how much
