N KW VoiiK, Sept. Ml
Wall, Broad and New street en
trances to the Stock Exchange were
crowded this morning a* tbe opening
hour approached. When the doors
were thrown open, the members and
snoot at orsrushed in in great numbers,
filling tlie Exchange and the visitors'
gallery tooverflowing. The members
around the President's desk cheered
vociferously, waving their hats.
Promptly at 10 o'clock, I'ivsidoiit
Chapman rapped the assembly lo or
der, and spoke to them as follows:
"We have met again after very mo
mentoussuspensions, for tlie purpose
of resuming business. Your action in
the interim basinet with universal ap
probation, and has been satisfactory
to yourselves. Business will be carried
on under the rules which were adopted
yesterday by the evening Hoard, which
had the appointing of a committee to
settle contracts with defaulters. All
I say now is, that you should help each
other to bear the burden which has fal
len upon us. So conduct your business
as to enable the exchange to carry on
its work successfully."
Loud cheering followed the address.
Business was begun, and much good
feeli nt' appears to exist. I'ndcr the
considerable pressure to sell and real
ize on stocks, prices have declined
from those current at opening, from 1
to S per cent. Hankers generally are
willing to operate for customers on
margins, until affairs become more

Smith & Lever, reported suspended

The price of money will depend Upon

There was a decided improvement In
foreign exchange. This is looked upon
as a favorable symptom of returning

their rates to 61 per cent, on to-day's

business was carried ou at a reduction
from those rates.
Henry .1. Hrooks, leather merchant,
suspended to-tlay, owing to present
financial troubles. He hopes for an ex
tension of time from his creditors. He
will then resume business.

Preserve the Fruit.
Heretofore California lias heen a
very large importer of dried ami pre
served fruits, mill this even when
quantities of our own green fruits
have heen allowed to go to waste un
der trees, because the price ottered for
them in this condition would not pay
a profit, after paying expenses of gath
ering, shipping and eommnilaaion for
selling. VY'e have seen iv this State
tons of apples, pears, and peaches
actually rottingjon the ground, which,
if in any of the New England or Mid
dle States would have been dried or
preserved for the California market,
and would thus have been made to pay
the producer a very satisfactory profit,
after hearing the expense of shipping
from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This
seems like an extravagant statement,
but it is nevertheless true, and the
very fact that it is true siiould wake
our fruit producers up to the realiza
tion that there is .something very
wrong in the manner In which they
have been conducting their business,
and cause them to look about for t lie
means of correcting this wrong. We
have heretofore depended too much
upon the sale and consumption of our
fruits in a green state. In the face of
the fact that not one-half the apples
and pears that we have been produc
ing, und that ripen in the latter part
of summer ami the early autumn,
have been needed for Immediate con
sumption in a green state, we have
)tesistcd in forcing tliem all upon the
market; when too, every shipment
made brought us in debt. It is true
that the demand for California pears
in the rant run cities bave been a par
tial relief for the past two or three
years, but our product of most kinds
of fruits has been rapidly increasing,
and the crop of the present year will
be greater in the access of the proba
ble green fruit demand, than in any
previous season. We would say, then,
to the fruit growers of the State, do
uot, as heretofore, push all your fruit
into the Sun Fruneiseo market, to be
thrown by the commission merchant
into the hay, ami then complain that
s ou can make no money in the fruit
business. Bather prepare yourselves
beforehand for the state of altairs that
your past experience teaches you will
be realised. Put up your drying seat
folds or drying houses, and be prepar
ed to dry all your fruit as it ripens,
and only sell iv a green stale when
the prices warrant a good protit over
and above expenses; or after a careful
investigation of the facts in the case,
you Hltd tbat it will pay better to pre
serve your fruit in cans than to sell it
green or to dry it, then prepare your
self with tbe necessary cans and other
facilities tor saving it in this way.
Hut do not, we beseech you, pursue
the unreasonable and unprofitable
course you have heretofore pursued to
your own great loss, and to tbe great
scandal of the State.
I'KOCKSS OK DUYINCI IN Till': sr.\.
There are many processes for drying
fruits, the most common being on
scaffolds in the sun. Perhaps no State
in the Union has so favorable a cli
mate for drying fruit in this manner
as ours, and yet to succeed well by this
process so that the fruit will command
tbe highest price, some skill ami a con
siderable care is required, It is unne
cessary here to describe the process —
all are familiar with it —but we will
call attention to a fact which none
who would make a success of drying
fruit in the sun, iv this State, siiould
overlook. It is that nine times out of
ten, if fruit thus dried be packed away
without the necessary precaution of
scalding, it will be ruined by worms in
less than one month after tlie packing.
We would therefore lay it down as a
rule always to be ft) I lowed! When
your fruit of whatever kind is sulll
eiently dry, dip it in boiling water for
al least half a minute, after which
again exjtosc it to the sun or place it
iv an oven until the surface water has
been evaporated. It is then ready to
pack or send to market. Besides in
suring against danger from worms,
this scalding will greatly improve the
quality of all dried fruit however it
may be dried.
AH'I'I KK'l AI, PB4>< KSSKS.
A process invented and patented a
ft'w years ago in .Maryland has been
used iv this State very successfully.
The machinery used consists of a tun
nel live feet square and fifteen feet
long, in which ihe fruit, after being
prepared by peeling, etc., is placed for
drying on shelves, one above the other.
The air at the bottom of the tunnel is
then heated by means of pipes to about
180 degrees—at the top il will be above
I'JfX Hy means of machinery the
shelves are gradually passed down
through the tube and when at the bot
tom having been dried siittlcieiitly by
the heated air, are discharged into a
receiver ready for packing. This is a
simple and quick method of drying,
and it is claimed to be sttjieiior to the
sun process, Inasmuch as the fruit is
not in the least fermented. All Un
natural flavor is therefore fully pre
served, so that when cooked tbe fruit
has all the freshness of green fruit.
Another process may be described
as follows: The fruit is cut up in thin
pieces by machinery, and then placed
on galvanised wire cloth in a close
room that excludes all dust and in
sects. A heated current of air is then
forced through it by a powerful ex
haust fan, which completes the dry
ing process in from four to six hours.
Fruit dried in this manner was ex
hibited at our State hair last Fall and
commands in the Sau Francisco
market about fifty percent, more than
sun dried fruits of tlie same varieties.
This latter process is very economical
and effectual, and we would recom
mend those who have any (piautily of
fruit to look to it.
CANNING I'ltl IT.
The more popular mode of preserv
ing fruit of fate years is by canning
and excluding the air so as to prevent
tlie tendency to decay. Any means
by which the air can be effectually ex
cluded from fruit will perscrvc it iv
the same condition us it was in at the
time the air is excluded, any length of
time —even a thousand years. The
most common vessel used for this pur
pose is the tin can. This is probably
the cheapest* but for all fruits that
have a considerable acidity glass Is
much better, Fruit acids act uiatn the
tin and thus the fruit itself acquires v
disagreeable tinny taste, and becomes
actually injurious instead of beneficial
as all fruit should be to health,— [Sac,
