A anmmary of the week eml m tn
Saturday ahowa that all ilepur.uicn'4
ottraJe au.l transpoitation, m well a?
banker! and itock tr k?rf, are doing
irell with a most prouiisins pro-pert
head. Money ia easy in New Yurk
with a moderate demand, theex remea
lor tbe put week for tankers'
baltnr8 beinR, as the ChronkU telli
08, at ao average of 2 rer cent.
KenrKAiD have generally been at 21,
bat banker have not been loaniog
below 3 per rent, except in cues
where tbe collateral was unexceptional!)-
good. Commercial pnjr has als)
been easier, for though tbe (apply is
becoming more liberalises fur in
dorsed hills and commiea'on bouse
names have fallen about a quarter of a
cent, buyers being more nnmeroui;
quotations ara 31(3,1 per cent, for in
dorsed hillj receivable, 3J5H J for Job
bers' tot-s, aad i(j for single
cam s tnving four to six months to
rno, the Utter being in less request
acd higher. Aito tbe future of money,
tbe revailing opinion can probably
be learned from the little inquiry there
is for accommodatioa (rjtn now to the
rod of the year and tbe better demand
and the lower rates rating f r indo-sed
bills receivable. Our foreign exchange
market bat continued firm at on
c'aacged rates. A ftature lias been
the steady demand for long sterling.
At the sime time there was a fair In
quiry for short bills and cable trans
lets, so tbat the rates have kept clcss
to the gold exporting point. A ship
ment of 2ii7,OO0 was ma le on Wednes
day, but this wai undeistood to be a
special transaction, nad tbe belief is
that it goes t) Taris. On Friday $54,
000 more, by the sane partioa, was with
drawn for shipment to Jay. Tbe week's
receipts and shipment of ctrrency, as
reported by the Chronide, were: Re
ceipts, $1,220,000; shipment $(127,000;
gain, f j'.t3,000. In addition to this the
banks gained $1,500,000 through the.
operations of the Treasury and
lost $521,000 by exparti of gold.
The Bank o( Kug'and gainad 270,
000 bullion during tin week. This
represents 220,000 received from
broad and 11,003 from the intsrlor.
The Bank of France lost 0,-1 .'5,000
irancs gold and 1,875,000 francs sil
ver, and tht) Bank of Germany gained
since the last report 0,520,000 marks.
The clearances for the week show sn
increase of 31.19 per cent, compared
I with the same time last year, an indi
; cation of the steady progress that comes
' to the Ari'EAL from all its corres
poadente. Trade is everywhere Im
proving and manufacturers la all de
partments are greatly encouraged. The
crap prospect, too, is pleasing tlie
farmers, especially iu the Northwiat
where tbe rain came in tlim to ralievu
their apprahentions as to the spring
wheat and grosses. Pains in this re
rloji have been toi heavy. We have
Lad more tbna our Bharo of water and
I here is reason to fear that the grans
will be a source of t ouble for some
weeks. But there is plenty of time to
tire such ills and we may reasonably
?xpect to hear by the end of the iu jnth
hat tbey have been cured. An addi
lona'ly encouraging Item is furnished
ythe National Bareaa of Statistics
n ths figures covering the exports
f breadstuff', cotton, provisions
; nd petroleum for the month of
day, wh'ch show gain in values in
hessltemiof $9,000,000 compared with
.he same week in 181, and of $10,000,
00 compared with 1885. Reports of
uilroad earnings are very good, but
articularly encoaraging from the
;runk lines. BradtlreeCt ro potts gjod
ockjol tobacci at most points, and
hat generally fair crop prospects de
resi prices of leaf. The visible sup
!y of su.ar is incrjasing, it being
,119,008 tone, against 1,108,31K) tins
;ut week, and 1,330,780 tons at the
una date lat year. Thoja tupplies,
ith an outlook for 25 per cent, more
iet sugar thin last year, contlnae to
. -press the market. The tlrst signs of
j-mness in hog products are observed,
x improved European demand being
; e main requisite for pronounced
tvance in price.
THE PEOPLE SHE Jl'NT.
The people have been educated
President Cleveland into ths
lief that publ c oflice Is a public
sit, and they are every where cling-
to the publle servants who have
sn tried aid found faithful. In
arly every Congressional D. strict in
; United States there were a tew
irB ag) aspirants seeking to under
lie and supplant the incumbent,
1 they generally succeeded ua
' the occupant of in Congress
t abandoned his post a: the busiest
tlon of the session, neglected im
( tant duties, returned homo and
ered into a general scramble for
) nomination. Indeed, this was
ectedbythe people, and when a
mberof Congres remained at his
t in the faithful discharge-cf his
',ies, the motive was attributed to
"orgetfulnees and neglect of his
'stituents, who took a mv
m j delight in lowering the haughty
t of the servant who had grown
5 proud to fetnra home and mix
i his eiasterg. Bat there has been
jadorfal change among the peo
j during the past fow yeara.
nidence of this we have only to
r to recent events in Arkansas
j Missitsippi. lathe First Arkan-
(Jorigiessioeal Pit trict the disap
jited office-eeekers aad the apir
I to represent the district in Cjw-
entered into a conspiracy to do
e Hon. Toindexter Dunn, and
J mpass this object unscrupulous
j.u.i were coDcocted and all sorts
deehoods were circulated. Mr.
n's dutise as chairman on an im
at commutes and the grave
questions aboat t3 be voted on in the
House of Representatives re
qirred his presence in Washington,
aid he issued an add rets to the people
appealing to them for vindication
since Imperitive duties prevented bis
Mil 'U to his district to vindicate him-s.-lf.
That appeal to tbe str jng sense
of justice aad fairness which he knew
fil'ed the breast of the jreople he bad
so faithfully served was not In vain.
Tbe reaction has set in and is grqwing
like a tidal wave. The people are re
buking the miserable conspiracy to
destroy a fa'thful and able representa
tive by wanton aad p -rmstent slander
while the victim was at his post faith
fully performing bis duties. Every
county is sanding delegates to tbe
convention instructed to vote for
Poindext jr Dunn, and Le will prob
ably be nominated by acclamation. All
the pressure and prestige which the
managers could control have been
centered against him, but the
people arose in their majesty
to vindicate a man whose whole life
is sta'nhss and honest a man of an
bounded courag, and energy, a Demo
crat who le record at ai earnest advo
cate of the principles of his psrty,
whether in defaat or victory, cannot
be impeached, and member of Con
gress whose industry, talents and un
selfishness reflected honor upon bis
district and won for himself the repu
tation of being one of the ablest and
most prominent members of the Con
grass of the Unite! States. The Hon.
J, B. Morgan, of ths Second Missis
sippi Oongrees'onil District, has passed
through the same ordeal and jhieved
the same triumphs. Wbi'" ,t Wash
ington serving his cons' . ts, Judge
Morgan his been base' lered and
villiBed. Calumny, fra. .id forgery
have been ths menus to which his
enemies have resorted. Like Dunn,
Morgan remained at hia post of duty
and looko 1 t j the penjVe fur his vindi
cation, and the result shows that slan
der, instead of swerving them, has
only intensified their love and esteem
for the'r member of Congress, and he
will be returned to the House of Rep
resentatives by ai Increased majority.
This CDinpllinsnt will bo worthily be
stowed, for in the darkest hour cf
Mississippi's h'story J. B. Morgan
took up the cn'iss of bis people, un
furled to the breeis the banner of
liberty, horns rule and democracy in
the face o! military entraps who were
plundering the psoplo, aad no man In
the State did more toward giving
psics, prosperity and happiness to the
people. Judge Morgan is a working,
uieful member of Congress. Faith
fully and untiringly has he
striven for the best Interests
of his constituents. He has had no
time t return horns to advance his po
litical fortune. But the people have
taken care of them for hi in and the
s'a'e slanders used to exhaustion in
tbe last canvass and revamped
by nnecrupuloui fnlsillers, have
caused that reaction which al
ways follows calumny, Tbo leison
taught by the people of these
two Congressional Districts Is an omen
of good. It shows that the day has
pasod when a public servant Is re
quired to neglect important duties to
secure a re-election and that the peo
ple Intsnd to cling to those who nuke
their personal iateiests mbservioat to
the public good.
APPKOAC nn-HKlftE or int.
MIWHATIWN.
To thoso who can look back from
thirty to forty years the change that is
taking place with respect to immigra
tion Is full of astonishment. Every
where was heard expressed the deeire
to tocuro a share of the foreign labor
leaking our shores from Europe. In
Germany, England, the Scandinavian
lands, Italy, everywhere, tbat emigra
tion was going on ; there ajonte were
bueily engaged in turning the Immi
grant's attention to tbe United Slates.
Pamphlets in many languages were
circulated on distant shores, along
mountain chains, far-expanding val
leys and in towns and cities filled with
historical monuments of hoar an
tiquity to Induje tin overflow of too
crowded populations to sock a home
in the rich lands and among the free
and prosperous poople of America,
where the tramp was unknown and
everywhere labor was la request. And
tliis is all changing. From Suite to
, State tbe tramp has Bought for em
ployment too commonly hard to find,
and today cries are heard that immi
gration must be regu'atsd, that its free
flow to our shores innst be checked,
and that ourown people must first be
full) supplied with ths means of earn
Inga living, and that the outpouring
from Europe mu tssek homs among
the wilds of Canada, the pampas of
South America, or the distant settle
ments of New Zaaland or Australia.
This is a wondrous change, and it is
not an encoaraging one. The million
aira grasping an over-share of the
public wealth is now in the land, a
new and pernicious obstruction to the
public welfare. It entails the parallel
evil of destitution and want at the other
extremity of the social icnle, for ono
portion of the community must suffer
and languish for want of the means
which the other portion has monopo
lized as snpeifluities. All this points
out unmistakably that the saddest
consequences mu'.i ensue unlets the
people of this country correct the
tendency of our laws and customs
that makes the rich grow richer and
the poor poorer, by favoring the dis
tribution of wea'th and by leso utely
arresting the temlenry to its accumu
lation in few hnnd Unless this be
done we must link Into the slough
which engu'fsllm European Innds,
and eee every here around us the ar
rcgiiiceof txces vH wealth dominat

lives 'from hand to mouth," verging

ano the Secretary cf tli Interior made
a statomeut to tho Secret nv of the
Treasury in regnrd to tbe indebt 'dncss
of tbe tential and Union
Pacific Kailroad Companies to
the I'ijI ed Stats under the
provleious cf the Thurman act, on
account of moneys which have been
diverted from earning of those com
panies to the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company in the form ofasabeijy
paid to that company.
The Secretary f tlie Inter'or ex
preesed the cpiuioa that the ra'lroad
companies were ie'ebted to the
United 8 ates in a I amonnt equal
to 200 per cent, of the r earnings ttius
diverted. The aroon'.t thus due from
tbe Central Pac'fle R 'lroad Company
is stated at U'tt,lb7, and from tbe
Union Pa'ific ltulrxd Company at

tbe act of March Jl, H'6, which, be
says, seems to require the Secretary

amount equal to tbe amount of in
debtedness of tbe eompinies to the

Tbe Comptroller recommends that
this course be purtned.
Tbe Prealdrat'a Veto Mcmaaarea.
Washington, June 21. The Pree I
dent has sent to Congr?ss fifteen veto
message;. Tmrteen of the vetoed
measures arep'ivate persion bills, and
the others provide for public buildines
at Sioax City, la., and Zanesville. O.
Tbe me sii'es have not yet been laid
before the houses of Congress.
In vetoing a persion bill today the
President said: "I am to thoroughly
tired of dieapproving girs of public
money to individual who in my view
have no right or claim to the same,
notwithstanding the apparent Con
gressional sanction, that I lnte-pose
with a feeling of relief in acaee where
I find it necessary to tiettrmine the
merits of the application. In speak
ing of the promiscuous and ill
advised grants of pensions
which have lately been presented
to me fcr approva1, I have
spoken of their apparent Congressional
sanction in recognition of the fact that
a large proportion of there bibs have
cever been submitted to a majo'ity of
either branch of Coi greee, but are the
reeult of nominal sessions held for the
express purpo e of their consideration
and attended by n small minority of
the members of tbe respective houees
ot ths legiel rtive brancn of the Gov
ernment. Thus, in contidering these
bills, I have not felt tbat I was a'ded
by the deliberate judgment of Con-
re;s, and wbea I have deemed it my
uty to disapprove many of the bills
presented, I have hardly regarded my
action as a dissent from the conclu
sions of the peoples' representatives.
I have not been inseneible to the sug
gestion which should influence every
citizen, either in private station or offi
cial plaie, to exhitit not only a just
but generous appreciation of our
country's defenders. In reviewing the
pension legislation presented to me,
many bills have been approved upon
the theory tbat every doubt should be
resolved in favor of the proposed
beneficiary. I have not, however,
been able to entirely divert myself of
the idea that the public money appro
printed for penslous is the soldier's
fund, which should bo devot-d to the
indemnification of those who in the
dufanaa of ths Union and iu th na
tions sertice, have worttitty deserved,
and who, in tho day of their depend
ence resulting from such suffering,
are entitled to the beneficent actions of
their Government. This re-election
tends to tbe best avowal of pensions;
a kind of suredoess which invites tbe
adoption of such principles and regu
la ions as will exclude perversion
as well 88 injure liberal and
geneious appliiaionof grateful and
benevolent des'gns. Heedlessness and
a disregard of tue principle which
underlies the gtan'.iugof pensions is
unfair to the wooxded, crippled sol
dier who is honored in the just recog
nition of his government Such a man
should never find himself side by side
on tho pension roll with those who
have been tempted to attribute tbe
natural il's to which humanity is heir
to service ia the a'my. Every relaxa
tion of prlnrip'e in ths granting of
pensions invites applications without
merit and encou'ag thos, who, for
gain, urge honest men to becoxe dis
honest. Thus is tbe demoralizing les
son taught the people that is against
the public treasury the most, question
able expedients are allowable." The
President suggests the s'gnifictnes of
the startling increase in ponsion legis
lation and tne consequences involved
in its continuance.

the rate of pension of soldiers who
