TIISDAY, i i JUNE 15, 1886,
THE BININENA Bit CATIO.
Tbe crop prospect is generally a
good one, and bnsincM II steadily im
proving in all pat Is of the country.
Tbe striken are nrar'y all at work,
and tbe aumnior, owing to the Inactiv
ity of the winter months, prom 'en to
bt a busy ono. Commercial affaire
lire alio in a most promising condition,
as is evidenced In the s'eatly increase
in the weekly clearing), which last
week, outside of Now York, were 19 5
per 'cent,, and, Including those
of that ci y, IWl 8 per cent, more
than for tbe corresponding week
of last year. This encouraging
Condition of things accounts for the
' better tone in the New York money
' market, renortrd at the cloie of. last
week by the Chronicle to be "without
essential change, a little firmer tone
at bank and on th street bslng ob
servable, but no Bub Untial Improve
ment iantM. On Tue'day bankers'
baUncrs at Hie Mock Exchange wero
.sIorrceJ up to 7 per cent, j it was, how
"ever, a mere spurt, wholly excep
tional, olTuriiigi becoming immedi
ately liberal, and since then the rate
has fallen as low as 1 pur cent The
vetaga for the week has not bern
above 2J per cent., with renewals at
21 per cent, litnks have been asking,
as heretofore, 3 per cent, and have
probably come a little nearer getting
it than last week, business having been
done somewhere bttwoen that rale
'and 2) per cent. Cominorc al paper
is la only fair supply for tbe season
and rules low, 3J to 4 per cent, being
the rate for Indorsed bills, 4 to 4 J for
commission house names and 4) ti 6
lor good single names. Time loans on
choice stock collateral have been mado
within a few date at ,1J per cent, for
three mouths, and this rato Is bid for
the remainder of tho year." Foreign ex
change was easy but by no means weak
at the decline of Friday of the previous
week until Wednesday, when it again
went np to 4.88 for long and 4.00 fir
short. The ga'n of gold and currency
to the bank of New York during the
week was of currency $,W,000, and tf
gold $1,000,009, total, $1,80(1,000. Tl e
Bank of Kngland gained MI,:00 bul
lion during the week. This repre
sents 284,000 drawn from abroad ami
222,000 from the in erior. The Bank
of Franco loft 5,250,000 francs g ld
and 2,100,000 francs Bilver, and the
Bank of Germany ainco the last re
port gained 180,000 marks.
eLADNTOWE APPVAUS TO THI
ri:wiLc.
"Tbe grand old mau" has issued a
ringing and eloquent addr ess t the
people of England, and has entered
tbe new struggle for home rule with a
seal which presiges triumph. AfUr
all it may be that Q'ads one's recent
defeat in Parliament will prove a
blessing la di-guise, for it is probanlo
that tbe people la the approving
lection will pronounce f ir a strong' r
ana more sweeping meisurs of home
rule than was propoetd by the bill le-
oenuy aeieatoa. in lrs drat great
jpeeoh uvoung boms rule Gladstone
aaid that tha flowing tide was with
him and the ebbing with bis op
ponents. Diecus ion and reflection
trenglhens tho fcome rule cmie, and
witn earn now election it will gain,
as It did In Amer ca, until tbe people
of Ireland will be permitted tl trans
act their own dome,tlo aff.lr
In their own way. Gladstone
baa forcibly sta'ed tbe issue
In a few word. He inks: "Will you
govern Ireland by coercion, or will
you let Ireland manage ber own af
fair?" and c'oses his addrem by declar-
lng that the acceptance of the home
ru.'e policy will ba followed by "tbe
consolidation' of tbe united empire
and great ad litions to its btrength j tbe
stoppage or tbe heavy, cons ent and
d9moraliiinj watte of the pub la treas
ure; tbe abatement and gradual ex
tinction of Ignoble feuds in Ireland.
and that deve'opmentof her resources
which experience shows to be a
natural consequence of free and
orderly government; the redemption
of tbe honor of Great BriMn from
tbe ttigma fattened upon her almost
from time immemorial In reepet t to
Ireland by the judgment of tbe who e
civilised wo-ld, and laatly the rea
tora ion of Par lament to its dignity
and effioiemy, and the regular nr ij-ress
of the butiine-s t:l the count. y." With
- Bach an i -sue before the p opt-, the
right will prevail. ButGhdttiuc is
placed at great di advan'nge In his
artruogle to gradually educate the
Eoglish people to justioe for Ireland.
He and his followers are without
money. They need subs tnt'el aid,
hot to debauch the electors, but to
of the fortaneleas
their time to tbe
other band, the
rale 'e rich in
resources, and they will pour out
money like wa'er to perp-tuate tbeir
despotism in Ireland. Tte Aour'can
prop'e who sympathize with I 'eland
should contribnts at once to aid the
cause of home rula in the great and
supreme hour of med. Memphis has
already contributed more than her
proportion of means to the good cause,
and every city in the United 8tates
should contribute something, and
tnose wbo give quit kip will give
doubly, for means are reede 1 to inau
giirate tbe canvais with that energy
and entbuslaHoi wh'ch gives succ-ss
Msny Americans oppose contrib itlor s
to Ireland, alth ujb sympaihising
with Gladstone, op .n ;h ground that
England is a friendly power, and
interference with bur dome t c afl.iis
by the people of the United States
would be aa offeos ve biea.-h of lie go
borly comity. But this sympathy br
lrtiaiu is not mrpirtd by an
unfriendly spirit toward Eng'and.
In his late speech closing the
debate, Glads'one tare the chief
reason for American sympathy
with Ireland when he s rid : ' G into
the length and bnaathif t'.e w rid,
tar ack the li;eiatu e of all coontr.es,
and find, if you cat, a single voice, a
ling'e book find, I would almoi tay,a
single newspaper art'ele in which the
conduotof Eng'and lowsrl liolai,d is
anywheretreattdexreptwi bprof und
and bitter condemnation." That is
the simple truth, and It alone would
Justify America's tympatoy. Our peo
ple merely join la the ver.iitt of civil
ized mankind agains' the s utility and
brutality of EnglaiuVs poll :y toward
Ireland a policy that tbe English
Parliament has juit vo el toe mtinue.
Tbe New York Star pla ei tbesmpt

Jrleli on tbe ground that wa krow
