npicuous at Chicago, Kansas City,
Boston, Philadelphia, and in a small
depive at Cincinnati. The features are
of the same character as those noted.
There is less evidenee of gain in the
volume of sales at the smaller West
era citiefl, notablv at Memphis, Bur
lington and Des Moines. The reverse
is true at IndianuiKjlis and Norfolk.
The cut rates on the Transcontinental
lines is marked by heavy shipments of
goods east from San Francisco. A
special from Davenport, la., reports
that California oranges have driven
other oranges out of that market, and
that the receipts are increased.
THE GENERAL INDUSTRIAL SITUATION
is rather better. The (strikes at the
Amoskcag mills and at McCormick's
Helper Works are failures, and w ork
is likely to be resumed soon at both.
The street car strikes in New York
and Brooklyn are ended, and the re
maining dithculties will be arbitrated.
There is rather less confidence at sev
eral Western pig iron centers that
prices are likely to be advanced in the
near future, inasmuch as any higher

weak and low in price, although there
is a better prospectfora comparatively

TnE dry noons trade
is, on the whole, slightly better, prin
cipally at lioeton and Chicago. At the
former city the higher wages paid mill
hands lias resulted in advanced
quotations for some grades of brown
and bleached sheetings. Print cloths
are off 1 per cent., with one report too,
that last week's figures have been
refused. Cotton and woolen goods are
both tirmer. At Chicago there is a
firmer demand for spring fabrics.
Flannels and woolens have advanced.
Wool is quiet, with pricus somewhat
in buyers' favor. In some few cases
quotations have been 1 percent, lower

was unanimously agreed to hold the

The theater was packed last Dight
by a very appreciative audience, that
applauded to the echo the exquisite
romedv rf Mr. John T. Raymond as
"Mr. JEataj Posket," beyond question
tbe most artistic of all the creations of
this superbly gifted comedian.
The play, . as we have
already said, is admirably con
structed, beta as ta situations and
plot. Out of the)cross purposes of a half
dozen very strong characters, every
one of them well played, there is
evolved the most side-splitiiog and
almost farcical situations, sj many and
so quick upon the heels rach of the
other, thet the audience is kept in a
continucas roar of laughter from tbe
rieiDR to the going down of tbe curtain.
Mr. Raymond is, of coarse, the central
figure of all this fun, and he always
is to natural and easy, so simply true
to his genius for comedy as to test the
risibilities of his andience severely.
"Mr. ifCaeas Fosket" is a character
widely different from "Gen. Lim
berger" or "Mulberry Sellers." He is
quiet English gentleman invested
with mnjeetrisl power and charade;
ieed by some idiosyncracies
that are develeoped by a bad
boy, "Cis Farrington," his step-son.
There is nothing in it of the boister
onenes8 that is readily recalled by the
lovers of "Hellers ' and "Llmberger,"
types of Amorican character that have
never been excelled, indeed, have
never been fqaaltd, on the stage. It
is a quiet comedy fart, the drollery
of which is made np of the superb
facial play and the ingenuous
incongruities of the comedian,
who bai found his way so
close to tbe American heart
It would be impossible to Bpeak in
terms of too high praise of this last
and best production of Mr. Raymond,
who is a matter in n line where he is
not likely ever to Had a rival. Nature
bai done everything for him, and be
has the gcod sense to find the 8t fac
tion of his desire for artistic. eucce?a
along the lines where his genius leads.
The ladies will, at the matinee to day,
find full verification of what we bave
said of one of the bet pieces of cha
acter actio g en the claw. Mr.
Raymond will appear as ' Gen. Lim
berger" in CongifM to-night, when he
ought to hive aoother ovei flowing

St. Louis Ileprihlican, March 4th:
Ogden Fontaine Some of the smart
Alecks of the cotton bears who haven t
the courage to sell at high prices, on
last Saturday, when cotton was at the
lowest point, were sneering at the reso
lutions of the St. Louis Cotton Ex
change suggesting to tla planters to
plant less cotton. I notice that the
Memphis Cotton Exchange passed the
samo resolutions, and the Memphis
cotton factors, as a class, are regarded
everywhere with consideration for
their good sense and jttdgtneut.
Tub Manchester Guardian, in its
commercial article, savs: "The market
is quiet, and has been but little
affected by the exciting reports from
New York' and Liverpool. Yarns are
decidedly firmer, and occasionally bet
ter prices have been obtained. India
40s nave advanced 1-lWa Jd above the
lowest prices that have yet prevailed,
and there has been a similar increase
in medium counts of cop yarns. The
sales, however, have been moderate.
The cloth market is unchanged. Pro
ducers readily meet the moderate
demand at previous rates.

yesterday. A delegation of workingmen
had a hearing before that body and
protested against any chunge in the
tariff. One of them said to Sir. Mor
rison that he was apt to wax warm in
discussinir the tariff nneNtinn. nnil
exclaimed: "Either do one of two
things; lot tho tariff alone or give us

go to England and get a lick at vou on
the other side of the Atlantic'."
Another of the delegation is an em-
iloye of the linn of Coomt,
lewitt & Co. Ho told the
committee that the tariff ihangcs
of 18K1 had injured the firm und it
employes, especially the change made
in the duty on wire rods. Mr. Hewitt
admitted that it had done so, but said
that he had oposed the change. Mr.
Hewitt also admitted frankly that ho
could not get ten votes umontz his own
800 employes if he were to run for
Congress in the district where his
works are located. There is much
that is important in what the real
workingmen think about the tariff.

who desired to secure a removal of

explained that the rough flax grown
in this country could not be turned
Into dressed llax suitable for use in
the manufnrtnre. of fine goods, and all
the dressed flax used inunt of necessi
ty be of foreign importation. One of
the workmen said that the Western
flax was of use only for the manu
facture of crash, twine and caroet and
other coarse goods.
James Anderson of Paterson. N. J..
said tho American flux could not be
used for tine manufactures, and the
removal of the duty on French. Dutch
and Flemish flax would not affect the

limtted that Russian flax m irht

Purrbniiea of Silver Ballloo.
Washington, March 5. During the
mouth of February the Secretary of
the Treasury purchased 1,450,000
ounces of silver for coinage into stand
ard dollars, being about 500,000 less
than the usual monthly purchases.
It is explained at tho department that
the amount of silver fell short because
no more was offered at market rates.
The price was higher owing to the in
creased expense of transportation
during tho had weather which pre
vailed during the month. There was,
however, sufficient bullion on hand to
allow the coinage of dollars the mini
mum limit. These silver purchases
are madesemi-weekly. A commission
consisting of Assistant Secretary Fair
child, Mr. Kimball, Director of the
Mint, and Treasurer Jordan, considers
the bids and reports to the Secretary
the advisability of their acceptance.
A division of sentiment had prevailed
for several weeks past uniting the
the members of the commission as to
the legality of the purchase in ques
tion. Treasurer Jordan holds that
tliere should be aj siK'cLfic Jappro
priation for such purposes, and in
the absence of such appropriation
invariably recommends the rejection
of all bids received. The other mem
bers of the commission hold the
coinago act requiring the purchase of
bullion and the coinage of no lesstlian
f.'.OOO.OiH) in standard dollars in each
month is in the nature of a permanent
appropriation, antl confers full au
thority in the premises. The result
has been that for several weeks past
the Secretary has received two reports
on the subject -the majority reiort
recommending the acceptance of the
lowest bids received antl the minority
report recommending tho rejection of
all the bids. The Secretary has in
each instance approved the majority
report and directed that the silver be
furchased in accordance therewith,
lad he acted in accordance with tho
recommendations of Treasurer Jordan
no silver would have been purchased,
and the coinage of standard dollars to
the limit provided by law would have
been practically suspended.

reporter. Mr. Bliss, k mort prominent
Republican leader of that city, waa
the first of the company rubjected to
the leportorial augur. He said :
"I have visited the South fre
quently before, both before aod
aince tbe war, and it gives me great
pleasure to speak of the material im
piovament I noticed on my trip with
Mr. Inman. The peottle bare gone
determinedly to work, and the result
is apparent in tbe numeioiis commer-
cul and mauufai HriDg enterprises in
prcspeioaa operation. The South,

try. raj Fxnenenced the effuct of the
la e bumness depression, but is rap
io ly improving under the revival of
trade. The advance during the put

"Ho did aa find the socfa' life cf
the South ?"
As it ever bat been, and I suppose
always will be, charming. We were
treated with the greatest hospitality
and courtesy wherever we t tanned.
and had we accepted all the in vita
tions extended us the trip would have
been lengthened indefinitely. I waa
especially delight d to find a 1 sec
tional foeling absolutely dead."
"You saw nothing to justify the
resurrection of the bloody ahiit?"
"That is a dead isaue. The war is
over. My trip baa convinced me of
that most thoroughly. Tbe people
have put all bitter memories behind
them, and are ttriving with energy
and tagacity to accomplish that pros
perity for the South tier natural ad
vantages so joftly entitle her to. Al
though a Northern man and a staunch
Republican, and they knew it, I was
never ncsived anywhere with greater
or more sincere cordiality."
"U the tide of emigration letting
Southward to any extent?"
"I hardly think it time for that yet.
All of these things require time; but
I have no doubt that ;ai the country
continues to develop it will grow into
a powerful rival of the West, both as
an objective point fr foreign settlers
and as a field for investment of North
rn capital." j
"What do you thiol of the present
agricnltntal outlook ia that section?"
"it has never been' brighter, in ray
opinion. Everybody is at work, and
the best of feeling teems to prevail be
tween tbe whites and b'acks. Tbe labor
Froblem seems to have adjusted itself,
nnderrtanrt that thj planters expe
rience nodillioultg in securing hands.
Gotton is. of course, extensively culti
vated. Those who have experimented
with cereals have found that they can
bay such corn and other grain ai tbev
require cheapsr from the Northwest
than they can raise it, so these are not
much cultivated. Klce is be
ing extensively aod, I under
ttand, profitably grown in Louisiana.
Experiments have been made with
ramie, but with what success I don't
know. The sugar planters are very
much down npon tbe Morrison bill, as
acn reduction tn toe duty on sugar
brings them nearer to absolute ruin
Tbe growth of the mauufac(nriri2 ia
terest in the South lifs been especially
wonderful. At one time it wai rather
too fist, notably in the erectioa if
cotton mills, as the prevailing idea wt
that the Southern mills, owing to their
proximity to tbe growing plant, would
drive the Noithern mills out of exist
ence. They now realize that this ad
vantage is offset by other advantages
enjoyed by the mills of other sec
tions, and this abnormal development
of tbe cotton manufacturing industry
has been checked. The various
Southern mills are doing a very RO)d
trade. The wealth of coal and iron
fields of Alabama and Tennessee is
wonderful, and has attracted a great
deal oi capital, ine contiguity ot lue
beds of coal, iron and limestone ena
ble them to manufacture iron at a very
i light cost It is, 1 am told, sent to
the neighboring coast towns and
shipped to various parts of the coun
try." "Do you think the improvement is
due to the example and capital of
Northern men, or the efforts of tbe
Sonthern people themselves?"
"There are, of course, numbers of
Northern men residing in the South
and a vast amount of Northern capi
tal invested there, but I think the
great strides made are due to tbe ef
forts of tbe Southerners themselves,
coupled with the natural advantages
of tbe country. They realized that to
restore the prosperity of that section
they mnst work for it, and. as I have
said, they are working, and I want to
emphasise the pleasing fact that no
where la it more evident that the war
is over and all issues growing: out of it
laid at rest than in the South itself."
Do you think the South will ever
become a basia of supply for the bal
ance of the Union?"
Well, this country ie too vast to
depend to any great extent onany one
section, bnt I bave no doubt that the
South will eventually occupy an im
portant position among the commer
cial and manufacturing districts of the
