THE BUSINESS SITCATIOl.
The commercial newspaper! con
tinue to speak in the most cbee: ful
terms of trade, preeent and prospec
tive. The New York Bulletin says that
"another symptom of improTing busi
ness is the fact that laks freights have
received a further impetus this week ;
and as about all the available tonnage
at Chicago fcai been taken up, the
movement cannot be regarded as fic
titious or momentary." The oil and
lumber trade continue to employ more
vtssels. The Buffalo wheat carriage
Tate is higher, both on railway and
canal, and the New Ycrk TWi thinks
there is hardly a possibility of grain
fieights declining this season, while
the Bulletin states: "The prcspect is
good for allclotses of freight, and own
ets ot vessels are already beginning to
congratulate themselves on a prosper
ity that has not visited thtm far sev
eral reasons." The same authori
ty alao observes: "The extracts we
make elcewbere from our commer
cial exchanges, from leading distribut
ing points show that the fall trade is
now under full headway, wiih reeu'ts
that, ss far as they go, mu-t be ac
cepted as highly satisfactory." With
activity in freight and favorable trade
reports, the Improvement in trade is
beyond doubt Tbot the improve
ment is no sudden "spurt" is a most
favorable feature; improvement that
comet gradually remains permanently.
Especially It is to be remarked that
the improvement is not speculative
in its nature. The Clearing House
returns, given on our seventh page,
show that last week's total clearings
showed an increase of 6.7 per cent,
over the corresponding week last
year. New York contains Wall
a net; putting it aside, and taking the
remaining reports, we find that the
increase was 21.5 per cent., which
peaks well for general business. Oat
ot thirty-two cities reporting, all show
increase over a year ago except five
Trovidence, New Orleans, Peoria, Port
land and Springfield ; Memphis'! in
crease was 15.4 per cent. The Treas
ury statement made September 1st Is
not a favorahlo one. The Bulletin rays
that it is "distinctly disappointing;"
the Indicator remarks "As far as last
month's finances aro concerned, tba
bowing is not highly satisfactory.
When we come to examine the Treas
ury statement, we find tbst the net
gold in the Treasury decreased $1,200,
717, and the net silver $1,720,317,
while United States notes Increased
$13,649,506. This increase is made up
. by an increase of about $5,700,000 in
United Btates notes in the Treasury
and the decrease of $3,000,000 in cur
rency certificates outstanding. The
decrease In net debt Is only $1,910,600.
The interest bearing debt was re
duced $5,680,000, and the debt on
which interest has eeaeed $009,168.
Tnere are nearly $54,000,000 of
bands subject to redemption In the
next thirty days." An exchange paper
remarks: "A great deal ot the gold
tbat Is now on the way from Europe
to America, as well as of tbat which
has arrived in the past few days, could
not have been sent on merchandise
account, as the balance in our lavor in
that item was not large enough in the
twelve months ending with Jane or
July to cover shipping and attendant
expenses. It came, therefore, as pay
ment for American railroad and other
securities, which are once mora be
ginning to find favor from Euroropean
. investors." The condition of things
in Earopa Is very unpromising for
pesos. Rustle is aiaamlng an
, amount ot dictation in Bulgaria tbat is
causing anxiety In Eagland, Germany
and Austria, while France threatens
to loin with Russia in case that power
should bs at war with Germany
Should an important European war
break out, demand would arise for
onr breadstuff's and food products ot
a'l kinds, giving a general stimulus to
trad a. On the contrary, the demand
for money that would ensue would
ctute Amerlian securities held In Eu
rope to be returned to u, with the ob
ject ot receiving gold in exchange.
rion hern journals speak cheerfully In
general as to trade, and the New York
Indicator remarka: "There never was
to sreat activity In the Sjnth in the
building ot new itou plant, opening
new o al minee. extending their cok
ing works, and so on." The same pa
pcrsiya: "About this time next year
you may look (or a movement in East

ganiiitioa ot the company has been
. upon a sound financial basis, and the
pew securit'ei ara all of merit

the fever in the quarter where it
broke out Biloxi faces the gulf, and
is on the railroad to Mobile, fifty miles
from New Orleans. The type is mild,
and the situation of Biloxi makes it
eaBy to keep the healthy from ap
proaching the sick. No fear exists of
the s!ckoets epreadiog to New Or
leans, and the Timet Bays: "New Or
eans was never in a healthier condi
tion than at present, and has been
singularly fortunate' in escaping
this year from the evil
tff.cta of an overflow from the river
and from cxcesivs rains." The coun
try around Biloxi is in an equally
healthy condition. JThs cases at
Biloxi came from communication with
the quarantine ground at Ship Island,
twenty miles off by ses. Add to this
that the season along the lower Mis
sissippi is a generally healthy one,
that we are In September, when the
heat is declining and cold mornings
approaching. A knowledge of the
isolation of Biloxi, its general good
health, and the consequences of the
latenersof the season, have prevented
any manifestation cf alarm among
the population of Memphis.

through the Wilmington No ch and
down the west branch of the Au Sable
river, and then np the east branch of
the rame river, through the Keene
valley, and thence across the country
to the westward. The trip through Wil

tbe big Mis of the Au Sable river,
where the water rushes over the rocks
and falls 100 feet into the bed below.
At this point the rocky sides of the
mountain gorge rise perpendicularly
to a bight of many hundred feet and
the strip ot Whits Face Mountain, laid
bae by the landslide, is distinctly
seen from the roadway. The horses
were halted at noon on the banki
of the Au Sable and the party
lunched in the shade of a oiutnp

Nbw York, September 6. This be
ing the legal holiday set apart by the
Legislature for tbe laboring cissies, it
was celebrated by a monster parade
by tbe different labor organizations,
followed by a picnic. The sky hada
threatening appearance, but this did
not interfere with the day's pro
gramme. Every trade was represbn'
ad in the procession, which was con
stituted, it is raid, of between 15,000
and 20.000 workins men. J. P. Archl

to Union Sauare. where It was review

feature of the parade was contained in
the remarkable uniformity shown by

generally wearing slouch bats of dark
or arev color. All the trades marched
by columns of fours, well clowd op

manufacturers wore white tiles. Tbe

presented probably tne nnest appear

carried by each division, and there
