MEMPHIS DAILY APPEALTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14. 1886.
TUESDAY, Ef TIMBER 14, 1880.
THE BUSINESS 6ITI ATIO.V
Tbeto'a'sol the hat week's clear
Inghonte reports abow that the amount
Of badness (till cont'eues to lncrea.e
as compared with la t year. Tbe en
tire total repotted for the weak retched
9.3 per cent, over the corresponding
week a year ago; excluding New Yetk
the total was 13.4 per cent, increase.
The latter figure suitaini theeocour
aging views that have been suggested
weekly forsome time. The New York
Indicator reports: "The surplus of tbe
banks is $1,700,000 lets than it wis at
that time, and the total cash reserve is
$7,700,000 leas. The bank hive lost
nearly $31,000,000 In deposits daring
the four weeks, while loans were re
duced only $19,000,000. Bat there is
no strirgency la money now, nor it
there 1 kely to be any. The rate of
Interest 1 as advanced to 0 per cent.,
although lotni are dally made at 5
per cant., or even lets. This does not
indicate itrngency, bat simply an in
creased u e of money." Tbe
London rats for money in the
open muket wis down (o 1
per cent., while the bank ra'e
was 3 per cent. ; a striking difference.
The New York Bulletin quotes Ameri
can trade dollars buying at 73 cents,
Belling at 77 cents; Mexican dollar.',
buying 74, selling 78 j Ergliuh aover-
elgns buying at U 83, sailing at U 87;
five francs buying at 02, selling at 05.
Silver is recovering from Itala'edepros
bIod. Ua Tuesday tbe rate ba i ad
vanced to 4 3510 pence ; on Wednesday
it quoted 44 pence; on Thursday it
wis op to 45 pence, all per ounce in
the London market, an advance
from 42 to 45 pence in one month. It
is asked will silver return to tbe rate
t which tbe Uoitsd State! bogsn to
vnlnf It? A. thai rata man Kfl npnrA 11
does not sppear likely that it will. It
has not quoted at CO pence for the lost
ten years, and it would have t reach
that to be on a parity with gold in tbia
country. The Indicator ssys that as
silver gos up tbe profit on Indian
wheat imports in Great Britain will
decline, which will bring American
wheat in greater demand, for the low
price of silver wta directly responsible
for the competition of Indian with
American wheat; and appreciation in
the value of silver cannot long continue
without vnrr favoriVr affectlns onr
grain trade. Demind from India is
the only reason we have asen ewlgned
for tbe advance, with small aupp'y
on hind, are the reputed caueoi of the
advance. The Indicator said on Friday i
"East Tennessee's new securities were
quoted for the first time yesterdiy.
The common opened at 13, lint
preferred at 08, and second pre
ferred at 28. They all advanced
during tbe diy, and will very
soon be selling (till higher. Tbe Eist
Tennetscs Company is now in a posi
tion ti make big money. The Ten
necsse Coal and Irjn Company will do
as we predicted it would. At tbe
meeting (o be held orj December 20th
a dividend will probably be doolared.
When we advised purchasing cf (his
etock it told at 41. Yesterday it sold
at SO, and is still a purchase." Tbe
Bulletin of Saturthy roporln: "Mom
phis and Charleston wis strong
throughout, having sold at 38JStj,
against 30 bid yesterday. Tbe close
was strong." The Indicator looks for
an "inflation of our currency through
tbe lajue of rsall silver note. There
is no doubt that this inflation will be
considerable. Tbo Treisury Depart
ment reports that the inquiry f ir $1
and $- silver certificates is very larger
and as soon as they can be issued from
$30,0C0,O00 to $10,000,000 will be put
into circulation almost at once. Tbls,
in our cp'nloa, will not meiBure the
total Issue cf silver certificates in the
coming twelve months. There Is
an oppoitunliy to increase the
issue to the extent of every silver
dollar now coined, or to be coined
for a year to come, of which we think
the Ticaaury Department will tnke
advantage. By relieving $100,000,000
of legal tendor notes temporarily of
their duty as currency, the Treasury
will be able to get that much silver
into use by proxy, and will have $100,.
000,000 more cf available funds to be
expended for government obligations.
It is in this way that inflation may be
made possib'e, and we Khali not be
surprised to see th's policy pursued."
Should tbese anticipations prove cor
rect, the markets will be stimulated,
prices unsettled, i peculation Increased
and the fonndation laid for a collapse
with a following period of depression.
The Bulletin o! Saturday reported from
local papers a steady Increase in tbe
amount of bunines, with a Hatisfactory
and encouraging outlook at Philadel
phia, highly favorable reports from
nearly every branch of huslcees at
Cbicg), no boom, but increasing
trade, with a tendency to higher
.prices; Savannah reports a fairly
active trado, tbe backwardness of cot
ton kept country tetai'ers buying only
for immediate corxampt'oa; s'etdy
and quiet at ritteburg, a blight falling
off in tbe demand for pig Iron, with
steady prices, mercantile affairs dirly
active ; at Mobile the fall opens with
encouraging prcspects; Baltimore
manufacturing is eat'htactory, but
with no rash of trade. Canadian
papers report a fair businers at gener
ally low prices. Theee miscellaneous
statemen'H will aid tbe reader to form
a conception of the state of business ;
many ol them are accompanied by
cheerful anticipation! as tothe future.
THE TRH'MPU OF EDICNn.
The complete returns from Vermoit
show the complete triumph ol Senator
Edmundp. Strings to say, Edmunds
had the sympathy of the Domoc ataio
his coot'st and in the few Democratic
counties in Vermont Democrat i were
elected to tbe L-g'slatare pledged to
vote for the re-election of Edmunds to
the Senate. The result proves that
tbe people of Vermont are not yet
ready to substitute mediocrity for the
most distinguished ability in the
United States Senate. Tbo fight upon
Mr. Edmonds was really a vigorous
and a dangerous one. No one obtains
the prominence which he has achieved
as a leader, no one serves tbe public as
long as he has done and witbttinds ax
calnr-ly every approach of the lobbyist
and the speculative legislator,
without making many enemies.
Edmunds wis bitterly opposed to the
nomination of Blaine, and damned
his candidacy with faint praise. Tbe
wpiranta for his seat in the Senate
made this the pretext for opposing his
election. Bat tbe Republicans of
Vermont rallied t the support of a
man who hid been trne to his con
stituents and whos) ability hid re
flected honor npon the State. The
Democrats eympathized with Mr. Ed
munds, as they knew he was incor
ruptibly honest and wera unwilling t
lend themselves to the destruction of
an ib'e old man merely to gratify tbe
ambitien of inexporienced young men.
The people are not looking to tbe
ages of isplrants for office, but to their
qualificationr. In all parts of the
country young men S9em to have got
tho dea in their heads that there is
some sort of a conspiracy to
prevent tbolr promotion, but the
idea is absurd. On icconnt of their
great abilities Clay and Rudolph were
elected to Congross before they Wrro
conitltutiona'ly eligible to their teats,
acd they were never defeated because
of their age and long servicer. There
is no young man in Tenneisee who
can truthfully eay tbat his abilitbs
are not fu'ly recogdz.d. Oa tbe con
trary, there is nothing that deligh's
the people more than the advent of
young men who bave, qualified tbom
selves for the duties of statesmanbhlp
and who are equipped tor serving the
TBE PRESIDENT'S MOVEMENTS.

Sprinokikld, Masi., September 13
A diabolical crime was committed at
Wesilidld Saturday night, whereby a
bravo young enitincer mat his dHttth
and bis engine was badly wrecked.
Some unknown person broke with an
ax the loik of a Rwituh about a mile
southeast of the Wfstflold station, on

tbe New Haven and Northampton
railroad. The ax was obtained from
a no'ghboring slaughter house. Tbe

He turned the twitsu on the sido
track where a number of freight cars
were standing and when tte New
Haven excursion train came over the
road from liolyoke, about 6:30 o'clock
this morning, it ran oa tbe switch.
The fireman saw the freight ctrs,
