THE BUSINESS KIII ATIOMS.
Tbe cheerful Influence cf ths pres
ent wival of trade generally ex
pressed by the commercial newer.
jpert ehow bow thoroughly the confl
' deoce which U the life of trade ia ob
, taining predominance. The Shoe aud
-Leather Reporter ears: "The tale of
merchandiee wilbin the ensuing nine
ty daye wl 1 in all probability exceed
tboee of any former period in tbe
world's bietory. This expectation
eeemi to be warranted by the facte
that people hire been baying sparing
y eo long thit they bave not many
goods on hand : that, when they begin
to take hold in ernt, they will give
such an impetus to trade that prices
will appreciate.' One , cocsi
qaence of the better stits
of ibingi is an Ucreaee in our import
trade; tie New Orleans Timet says
"We hive increased oar imports and
fa'len oS in our exports, a change in
the balance of trade against us 'of
$108,081,7i.9. List ye-r the balance ia
our favor wis $161,771,223; ihlsyear
it is but $13 089,613." Buch a
act as thii should induce ui
to regulate our tariff so as to increase
onr sa'es in foreign markets. Tbe
J South is fully sharing the improve-
ment in business. The Baltimore
j Manufactunri Record reports: "Ad
; rices from the South are very encoar-
aging, and salesmen rt turning from
j tseir travels in that section report a
i very marked chsnge ia the condition
of trade, largely due to the steady im
provement in the cotton crop. South'
era merctiants wno, six weeks ago,
were more anxioui to cancel old
orders than to givs new ones, believ
ing that business would be very dull,
are now purchasing more fret ly. '
Tennessee 'is receiving ber share of
tbe better s'ate of things. The New
(York Indicator states that ia Wall
1 street "the East Tennessee securities
1 were atroog, and will make further ad
; vnce, especially tbe first preferred
; stock. A considerable amount of this
! stock wis purchased yesterday, and It
Is expected to touch 80 early next
week. Tennersee Coal and Iron told
at 61 yt;rday. This la a good in
vestment at curity, and will command
a higher price. It Is a splendid coal and
i on anr eommerciai paae show a total
j increase lait week over tbe oorre-
Bpondlng week last year of 30.0 per
j cent; excluding New York the in
j create was 23.0 per cent. Tbe high
. figure at New York was tbe result o
active wan Btreet operations, the In
i crease outside of it gives a fair idea
of the actual trade improvement,
Worcester is the only place that re
I ports a decrease. The New York
j Chronicle reports "no material cliaoae
i in tbe money market during the
week." Bankers' balances averaged 6
i per cent., at which rate renewals were
: generally male. Late bank d?'alca
i tions cause a close scrutiny of thai
clais of paper by capltalitta. The did
; turbed condition of affairs in Europe
i is depressing trade there. Our for
? sign exchange market has been on
i parat'vely qule', at a rise of a cent a
i pound, but more pli ntiful cotton bills
' will soon make the ratj eas'er. The
! Chronicle says: 'Up to Tuesday
j afternoon a fair margin of profit
existed, for impo-ls of gold from
Iijndqn, AJit tl9 rates were
'advanced a halt Cent Qi thai d7
j that margin was ex.ioguiahed aud
i with the farther adyauue on Thurg.
!... : . V
flay go.d importations were made en-
j tirely impracticable. IafacawahiVe
otttn stat.d, there tu been no'hlng
! in trade movements to justify ship
1 mentsof gold ta America this seaoa,
j and while our large increase la ira-
ports continues, if gold comes in any
amount, it will be for the payment of
securities and not for any balance on
; merchandise." The Bureau of 8 a'is
j lies' report shows the trade balance
! against os in August was $7,515,0C0;
. also, and. notwithstanding that fact,
j that oar net imports of gold for tbe
j month were $4,838,000. Hence, if we
. deduct $412,0C0 for the net silver, ex-
ports, the balance against us on the
trade tUtemeut of that month
was $11,939,000. Allowing the
usual amount for freight,
interest, and so on,; the Chronicle shows
that we bgn September indebted to
the world on onr tract mnnnunt
i more than $30,000,000. The enreat
report! of the railroads c ntinue to be
very favorable, tbe Chronicle repoits
fifty-seven roads showing an increase
of $549,601, or 13 per cant Silver is
etill the weak point in our nuance,
and Mexico and the Eat Indie tare
Buffering acutely from its fall in value.
The a ivance it hai lately experienced
is founded on hopes excited by the
English government having appointed
a Commissioner to investigate its va
garies. It liquated steady at 41 J in
London, which makes the bullion
value of the silver dollar 74.8 cents.
Telegrams coming in as we write con
firm tbe s'atementa mads with respect
to trade improvement, and the ad-
vac ce made in cotton adds . to the en
couragement. A SEW FAVEUKXr EXPERIMENT.
The nineteenth , century has pro
duced many wonderful things, not
counting Wigglns's prediction, but it
has not given the world a satisfactory
street pavement. Our exchange papers
often mention the subject, and ia
Europe comp'alnt of street pavements
is parpe'.ua. Inventors try their bint,
only to became disappointed, and ex
periments appear to result in despair.
The last effort bai something eurprit- J
ingaboBtit. It uses a material thai js
before oar eyes every day, bat which
has hitherto been overlooked as a pos
sible street pavement mateiiat. Tbe
new article ia the common brick. At
Bloomington, 111., as everywhere else
where the . people are intelligent,
there was dissatisfaction, with the
street pavements. Tbe City Council
tr ed Mcadam and Nicolson and
tbe rest, without any satisfaction
When Mr. M. B. TIeafer proposed tj
pat down brick, the city to pay him
for it only i I it succeeded. That pave'
ment is now fifteen years old, and
that fact says all that is wanted or de.
sired, as its condition is good today
and it haa never needed repair,. So
sta es Mr. Heater's partner in the
Bloomington Drainage and Farm Jour
nal. Good common well burned brick
is used, patent brick he declares to be
unnecessary. Tbe bottom of tbe street
is excavated and rollod, then tbe
proper layer of sand. The bricks, we
assume, for the writer omlh to say,
are laid edgeways, with interstices at
proper intervals to prevent slipping,
and these filled in with sand. Tie
writer, Mr. Edgar Heafer, says : "Tbe
city of Bloomington his now perhaps
two or three m les of this pavement,
which Is giving the best cf eatitfac
uon, ana lartnermore, lias pro
vided by ordinance for the con
st ruction of about a mile more, while
the demand for brick streets bai
reached the highest deg'ee of inten
sity." Decatur and Jacksonville, Id ,
have alas adopted tbe brick pavement.
M r. Heater has taken oat do latent,
but he is rapidly laying his pavement
down. Such is tbe statemett. which
can be verified by writing to Bloom
Infiton. Have we reached tbe loog
wanted pavement at last? Ic is worth
while aeceitainir.g, and if the qualities
are found that are described, Memphis
is just the place where tbe brick pave
merit is wanted, earthquake or no
eaithquake. Beside its rrcommenda
tion of smoothness and rel et from the
wear and tear of vehlchs, how del cht-
ful would be the deliverance from the
roirand crash and rumble of joitint,
jerking, vibrating wsgons and buggies !
Is brick the long wanted savior from a
nuisance that annoys the strong and
excruciates the weak and tortures tho
sltk? If so, mi la brique.

WisBiHGTON, September 27. Tie
Bireaaol Agriculture is activelv en
g'ged in devisicg and putting in oper
ation measures looting to tne extirpa
tion of pleuro-pneamonia, and Com-
mi-sioner (Jolman his reeolved to
adopt every legitimate means in ifi
Siwer to check the outbreak of the
iseese reported from - Chicago. An
evidence of the anxiety and apprehen
sion felt in the Western States is
afforded by tbe following telegram re
ceived today irom JJenver, uol. :
In behalf of the live stock industry
in the West, we earnestly protest
against the sale, either private or pub
lic, of any of tbe c ttle that have been
expoei to pleuropneumonia in tbe
vicinity of Chicago. Cattle sold under
such circumstances must brlog de-p-eeed
prie s, thai giving eagar spec
ulators abundant opportunity to
spread the disease throughout the
Toe above message was siirced by
R. U. Head, president of tbe Interna
lionsl Range Aisociation, and J A.
Cooper, president of the Colorado Cat
tle Growers' Association.
Commenting on this d'spalcb, Com
tn if s oner Colman said: These peo
ple must be crezy to think tbe de
pa'tment will nermit any of these cat
tle to be told. We have quarantined
them, doubled our forces on Saturday,
and are now aoing to send out B3me
of tbe most expert veterinarians we
bave, so s to stamp out the disease at
once, and do everything that the dp
pa'tment can le.iiimately do. We
did not get through Congress the 111
we expected to p ss on tuis subject,
so we can only second tbe efforts of
the State authorities and a-sist in
carrying ont tbe State laws. Un
der eiibtiog law we tan only stamp
nut tbe distase in a Stale wito
the permission ol the local
euthoitiea. Sometimes tie Governor
of the Slate will not content to Ft dart 1
interferen e, bo we can only seer nd
their efforts. The commissioner has
drawn up and fir warded to the Gov
ernors of all the States and Territories
a series rf rules and regulations for
co-operation between the United
Hates Department of Ainculture and
tne autconties cl tne severe I States
and Territories for the suppression and
extirpation of contagious pieuro-
poneumoLia, and if tney receive tbe
consent of the State authorities, the
bureau will make a systematic and de
termined attmpt 1 1 stamp out the dis
ease by attacking simultaneously eveiy
The circular recites the provisions
ol the law, laying particular stress on
tbe sectiou which makes it a requisite
tor action rjy me department to first
secae the consent of tbe State an
thoritits and then lay down the fol
lowing rules and regulations, which
are deemed necessary to insure results
ciaimeosurate with the money tf 100.-
000) authorized to be expended: ' v
.Fin. Tbe necessary ins peck n will
be f arnisbed by the Bureau of Animal
oduitryot tue JJpartment of Aer.-
culture. - i '
Second The prooerlv constituted
inspectors of the Bureau of Animal
Industry, which are assigned to the
reepective States, are to be authorized
by propsr Stato authorities to make
inspections of cattle under the law of
theS'at's; they are to receive tuch
pr taction and ars ance as would be
fjven to Sta'e officers engaged in sim
tar work, and snail be permitted to
ex unine and quarantine herds when
ever so directed by tbe Commission! r
of Agiicniture or tbe Chief of the
Bureau of Animal Industiy.
, Third. All reports of inspections
will bo made to the Bureau of Ani
mal Industry, and a copy of these
will then he made and Inrwarded to
the proper 8ta,te authorities. When,
however, any inspector diecovers a
berd infected with ontaglous pieuro
pneumonia, he will at ouce report the
s me to the proper Stats autho:ities.
as well as to the Bureau cf Animal
Fourth The inspectors, while al
ways thject to orders from the De
partment of Agriculture, will cordial
ly co-r pera e wHh the Stale authori
ties and will follow ins ructiors re
ceived Irom them.
fVii, When contagious pieuro
""umonia is d'scoye-red in ny herd
the)' ow'hOr VJ pwaon I 'ld to be
at orce notlfltiu by the Inspect ir, and
the quarantine regulations ol the
State in which the heul is lected are
to be enforced from that time. Tbe
affected animals bJihII be isolated
wben possible from the remainder of
tbe herd until they can be properly
appraised and slaughtered.
Sixth. To insure a perfect aud sat
isfactory quarantine a chain fastened
with a numbered lock will be placed
around the horns, or with hornless
animals around tbe neck, and a record
will be kept showing the number ol
tbe lock placed opoa each animal in
Seventh. The lock and chains will be
furaUhed bythe Department of Agricul
ture, bat they will become the prop
erty of the State in which tbey are
used, in order that any one tampering
with them can be proceeded against
legally for injuring or embexzlicg
tbe piopeity of the State.
Eighth. Quarantine rf strict ions
once imposed are not to be removed
by the State authorities without the
consent ol the proper ollicers of the
Depur mont of Agiicultnre.
A'inlA. The period of quarantine
will be at least; ninety daye, da'ine
irom the removal of the lust diseased
ammals fioin the her.l. Dining thU
period no animal will be allowed to
enter the berd or to leave it, and all
animals in ths herd will bo carefully
ieolated Irom other cattle. When pos
sible, ail loiectea nerus are to be held
in quarantine and not allowed to leave
the lnlectetl premises, except lor
slaughter. In this case fresh auiiuals
may be added to the berd at
the owner s risk, but are to bs
considered ai infected animals and
subjected to the same quarantue reg.
ulat on as the other members of the
Tenth. All animals affected with
contagions pleuro pneumonia are to
be slaughtered as soon after tbeir dis
covery as tbe necessary arrangements
cm be made.
Eleventh. When diseased animals
are reported to the State authorities,
they snail prompt'y take such steps as
they desire to confirm tbe diagnosis.
Tbe animals found d;seaeel are then
to be app-aised, according to the pro
visions nf the SUte law, and the
proper oOleer of the Bureau of Ani
mal Industry (who will be disignated
by the ComiiiUsioner of Agriculture)
cotillsd of the appraisement; the De
partment of Agriculture will purchnss
the diseased auimals of tho owner aud
pay such a propurti .n of the appraised
valus as la provided in compensation
n 8001 crses by tbe laws of the S ate
in which tne animals ara located
when tbey are condemned and
slaughtered bv State authority,
' TvUffth. All neceestry disinfection
ilt hi conducted by tbe emp'oyes of
tbe Bureau ol Animal industry.
Ihtrteenth. Ioocnla'ion is not rec
ommended by tbe Department of Ag
riculture, and it is believed that n
adoption withanima's that are to be
afterward sola to go into o'ber herds
woald counteract the good" results
which would otherwise follow from
the s'aughter of ths diseased animals.
It may, however, be prac iced by
Sta'e authorities under the following
rule: . .
Fourteenth. No herds bat those in
are to be inocu ated.
.FibsniA Inoculated herds sre to
be quarantined with lock and chain
on each animal. Ths quarantine re
strictions are to remain in iorceas
long ss any inoculated cattle survive,
and these animals are to leave the
prem'sss only lor immediate alanebter.
Sixteenth. Fresh animals are to bs
tak-n into inorulated herds only at
tbe risk cf the owner, and shall be
subject to the same rules as the other
cattle ol tne inoculated berd.
Sevenleentk The Chief nf the
Bureau of Animal Industry. is to be
notified by tbe State authorities of
each herd inoculated, ol tin final de
position ot eacn member of ths herd
of tbe post mortem appearance-, and
of any other fact) in the history of tbe
herd which may prove of value.
The co-opt ration of Governors, of
biate i've rstocs; uommistioDS, and
of othsr officers who may be in charge
of the branch of the service provided
ur ine coni-oi oi tne contagious dis
eases of animals in the State? where
pieuro pneumonia exists, is eerneetly
requested under these rules ami reiru-
lauons.wh cti bat e been framed with a
v ew of securing nnifcrm and etliciett
action throughout the whole infected
dis rht. It is boped that with a vig

49, of New York.
Nxw York. September 27. Sixty
delegates of District Assembly Xo. 49
win attend the Ueneral Assembly of
the Knights of Labjr in Kichmond,
Va. "Every Knight of Labor," said
one of these delega'es yesterday,
"when be enters the order knows that
h.s obligation makes him disregard
the color, creed and nationality of his

No. 49 has now among its members a
number of colored men. Oae ol these

heard this secured a p'ace for himself.
acd said tbe ether delegates could, se
lect any hotel they liked. The o.hsr
delegates, however, by en 'unanimous '
vote declared they would only go where
tbeir colored brother was admitted on
tbe same footing. Tbe Assembly
tben looked about to devise a way
ont of the trouble. It finally sent the
colored delegate and a white brother
to Richmond to secure board for the
entire delegation among the colored
families in tbe city. No member of
No. 49 will board anywhere except
with a colored family. This action by
No. 49, we hope, will work goid and
be of benefit to us and to humanity. In
Kicnmoud there is a District Assem
bly which Ignores the colored Knights.
District Assembly No. 49's action will
bring, we hope, tne white brothers to
their tenses and start a break np ol the
color line. We are all anxious to begio
the work. It may bs tbat the greater
