Tr.f anain influence upon active
mercantile operation- during the
week baa, of course, been disturbing
eflette ol the great railroad strike.
Kctithatanding thia the maiket re
ports ot the week Bbow a better slate
of things than exi&ted a year ago. The
max renters of activty, however, are
tbe peeotative ones. It is also en
com airing- to see that railroads un
avUecie. by the Brike have had an in
crease ol business. The total bank
clea -W. exhibited in this morning's
bunne column of the Afmal, ahow
an increase oa the week, aa agilnst
th name time last year, cf 42 per
eerl.or putting New York and its
speculative operations seide ol .1 per
cent. Only fonr cities ont of tbiity
r.riinu allowed a decrease ai
compared with a year ao. The fol-
lowing were among the increases.
Chicago 13.7 per cent., 8t. Louis 18.6,
Cincinnati 11.0, Kansas City 36 0, New
Orleans 9.2, Memphis 16 5 per cent.
Lonisvilre bad a decrease, probably the
reiait of the floods that are afTecting
thai city and other cities among those
in the Ohio Valley. It is not improb
able lh at another week may show
still more depressing results, owing to
high water. The New York Ilerald
renorta that bniiness'there was not at
all brisk lut week; merchandise gen
erally was slew of sale at prevailingly
unchanged quotations. There has
been an unsettled feeling there in
grain, which baa been irregular, with
downward tendency all the week,
with little exception. Money) on call
at New York to borrowers on stock
-collateral was at 2 to 3 per cent. The
Bank ol England rates remained un
changed at 2 per cent, with a ds
creaee of bullion, whila the Bank
of France bad a liberal increase
ol gold. No immediate gold ship
ments here are anticipated unless
London sbonld become seller of
American securities. OongreBS has
been aroused a little to the require
ments of business interests through
tbe influence of the strikers, but
the bankrupt bill appears to have
lonnd a permanent' deposit for the ses
sion among the committees, althougbit
has been ascertained that the Hanse
has a majority In favor of its passage.
A bill to reform some of the glaring
vili ot enr tariff eytturu is in llngnr
irtg process of construction in commit
tees. It is to consist a sort of com
bination ef Hewitt's bill, as that was
received by the Treasury, with some
items taken from Morrison's bill. Tbe
public is aware that the evils of the
present tariff are se grots that
before lens more will nar.ee-
aariW - be done than can b got
from the present Congress, so that
tbe committee a patchwork efforts at
tract no great inteieat. Congreis is
etrtvDuelv Inattentive lo business in
terests, but the busintsi world gen
erally is remiss in not being more ui
gent with Congress. Perhaps, how
ever, they bsve learned to bear the
ills they have rather than run the
-chance of others Corgresi might in
flict. The New York liulicatur says:
"The Bank of Engl md sticks to the 2
per cent. rate. That rate cannot at
tract much money from this side.
The present aspect of the foreign ex
change market does not give hope of
an eirly advance in rates or of an ex
pert movement in gold."
which the.Enslish autocratic system
is bund. Tin nobles own the larger
portion of the British soil. They draw
fr. m it their iixomis.ini the power
they have over thtir tenants adds to
the weight of their wid ii.fluence.
The other week IVirlia nect adopted a
nsoUitioa i a favor of imposing a tax
upon gnnnd rente. The aristocracy,
who before the reform ol lodis .pos
sessed almost supreme power In mak
ing tin laws, with a eelfhhut'BS peculi
arly aristocratic, exemuted the ground
rents the r extensive esta'i- gave them
from txa ion. Nine wen, including
four dukes, own nearly all toe western
pa'tof London, and tbe rente arising
amount to million on which no tax is
paid. Leases are now falling in op sn
which tbe tenants bavs pat vaiaaoie
bnildinw that now come into the
poes-s don ol the noble non-tax-payers.
As may be expected, tte aristocrats
refuse to salt what is so prcQ'able,
even the blackest "slums" that sre
sought to be removed by the civio
authorities. The dsys of this wrong
ate nar their close, and this Is but
nnn of the manv abases tkat the demo
cratic linpulie now communicated to
