BIk Increase In Gold.
These figures show an Increase of about
$22,000,100 In gold over the bureau's esti
mate for the calendar year 1903. The United
States shows a gain of about $7,000,000 and
South Africa Of $18,000,000. The director says
that both of these countries are still upon a
rising scale of production. Australia, on
the other hand. Is an Important producer
which shows a tendency to reduce its con
tributions, although the fulling off Is not
large and may be temporary. Considering
developments In well known fields It seems
a reasonable forecast to expect the world's
output In 1905 to exceed that of 1904 by $26,
000,000, with another gain probable In 1906.
In view of current discussion upon the In
fluence of the Increasing gold supplies upon
commodity prices and wagca the bureau haa
been at some paina to collect data to show
the Influence ot higher coats upon the gold
mining industry Itself. Tha director says:

forced between gold and commodities, of

The gale rreated such a sea as has not
been experienced on the lakes In the last
fifteen years. Many of the large steel
liarges which make nothing of the heavy

were compelled to seek shelter In the near
t ports. As an evidence of the severity
if the wind it Is said the storm lowered the
water on JMinekilns Crossing at the mouth
if the Detroit river by over two feet and
onipletely stopped all navigation during
the day. There the water la eighteen feet
two inches, but this morning, during the
height of the gale, it was down to fourteen
feet one Inch, the lowest ever known.
Although the gale on Lake Michigan was
not as severe as that on Lake Huron and

threatening clouds of the early morning
failed to loose their weight of rain, and
although a chilling wind prevailed through
the entrre day. It failed to cool the ardor
of the welcome.
Numerous extra trains brought their
burdens from the surrounding country and

Waiting to receive the president was the
committee, headed by Governor Terrlll.
and composed of Senator Clay, Congress

A committee of women, headed by Mrs.

A moment later the party emerged and

The prebldent spoke aa follows:
Here ln this great Industrial center, In
this city which is a typical southern cltv,
and therefore a typical American city. It Is
natural to consider certain phases of tho
many-sided Industrial problem which this
generation has to solve. In this world of
ours it Is practically Impoanlble to get suc
cess of any kind on a large scale without
paying something for It. The exceptions
to the rule are too few to warrant our pay
ing heed to them; and as a rule it may be
said that something must be puld aa an off
set for everything we get and 'or every
thing we accomplish. This Is notably true
of our Industrial life. The problems which
we of America have to luce today are very
serious, hut we will do well to reuicmher
that after all they are only part of the
price which we have to pay for the tri
umphs we have won. for the high position
to which we have attained. If we were a
backward and stationary country we would
not have to face these problems at all; but
1 think that most of us are agreed that to
be backward and stationary would be alto
gether too heavy a price to pay for the
avoidance of the problems in question.
There are no lnlior troubles where there is
no work to be done by labor. There are no
troubles about corporations where the pov
erty of the community Is such that It la
not worth while to form corporations. There
Is no difficulty In regulating railroads where
the resources of a region are so few that It
does not pay to build railroads. There are
many excellent r'-ople who shake their
heads over trm difficulties that as a nation
we now have to face; but their melancholy
Is not warranted save In a very partial de
gree, for most of the things of which they
complain are the Inevitable accompani
ments of the growth and greatness ot which
we s re proud.
Now, 1 do not wish to be misunderstood.
I do not for one moment mean to say thst
there are not many and serious evils with
which we have to grapple, or that there are
not unhealthy signs in the body s-x-tal ami
politic; but I do mean to say that while
we must not show a foolish optimism wo
must no less beware of a mere blind pes
simism. There Is every reason why we
should be vlgllHiit in seHrchlng out what is
wrong and unflinchingly resolute ln striv
ing to remedy it. Rut at the Hume time we
must not blind ourselves to what hus been
accomplished for good, and above all w
must not lose our heads and become either
hysterical or rancorous In grappling witl
what Is bad.

Regulation of Corporations.
Take such a question, for Instance, as the

connected with the growth of corporation!
In this country. This growth lias meant, of
course, the growth of individual fortunes.
I'ndoubtedly the growth of wealth in 'his

companiments, but It seems to me that
mucii the worst damage that people of
wealth ran do the rest of us Is not any ac.
tual physical harm, but the awakening In
our breasts of either the mean vice of wor
shiping mere wealth, and the man of mere
wealth, for the wealth's sake, or the equally
mean vice of viewing with rancorous envy
and hatred the nun of wealth merely be
