"WILL CHICAGO B0 IT;"
"St. Loula Hajeotethe Brazil Trade-Now
for CUii airo Capital, jsiiervy sua tuf
prise :-Clro tba future Buffalo ol tba
southern Bout !'
The following article from the New
Orleans 2W ot the Kth Ins:, will read
wiih Interest by the business men of
"One of the inut eiiconrairiiiir features
of the hour Is the ill-position manifested
by some long-headed houses at Chicago
to consider what might be done by that
city towards a further and Increasing
commercial union with the South. No
theory is advanced, either by them or
us, that the etiipenilous grain
trade ol that city can or ought to be
turned upou the great Southern route.
The bulk t( that business from the ex
treme Nortli western States will probably
always flow along present channels to
the Atlantic seaboard; but there is a spe-
citic Southern trade which hicago is not
disposed to neglect and which mw Is
quite- as well prepared to
fuIIIU as any other Western city.
She posscses certain characteristics j
to the Bxclusion of all Western
competitors that arc peculiarly favorable
to the commerce of New Orleans. St.
Louis is a retail city; she affects thepack
ase business. She would like very well
to sell her goods to New Orleans In ag
gregates, but at the same time would run
down everv cross-roads' store in the
south and sell to each retail and job lots
at the same price on long credits, and
then trrumblc because the surplus not re
tailed in that WSV nnil cnnclirrpil
to this market was not readily
distributed at an advance on her own
r.ites. Chica-'o is not such a market.
She deals only In aggregates, and is never
a competitor with her own customers.
It In these characteristics hi. l.oms were
Chicago the provision trade oi New Or-
leans would not change, as it is now rap
idly doing, Irom St. Louis to Chicago.
But our friends on the shore ol Cake
Michigan do not take a shadow view of
the position. They are, ts usual, forecast
ing the future, and preparing themselvis
for emergencies that are ripening. They
look out lor trade wherever it may be
found.nnd trcDerally possess it by the time
other communities get fairly awake. The
Northern routes not unfreQwcntly become
gorged and in the rapidly increasing vol
ume of business there, a southern outlet
to loreign and coastwise markets will be
come more and more desirable. J lie fa
cilities are now iu hand lor triui'.fcrs to
this market, and even grain can he sent
here as cheaply as It is now sent by ra.i
to New York.
Two Important considerations ought,
and we are assured do, engage the at
tention ot some of the enterprising mer
chants ol Chicago.
1. The steadily Increasing volume of
production or the Northwest that pours
Into that city.
2. The frequent (forcing of the freight
routes, even in tho rummer and lull,
and the total suspension ol water naviga
tion In winter.
It is utterly Impossible to estimate
when the limit of production will be
reached. Certainly it must steadily in
crease, and in a short time will probably
be double what it now Is, when the lukes
and canals andj tho lour doublc-traik
railroads that now glye outlet to Chi
cago accumulations will be found
Inadequate; fn that emergency can
not Chicago use the Southern out
let to advantage, and under any stato of
the ease can she not use It as advantage
ously as St. Louis? There is now a com
nlHerall communication between the
lakes and the gulf, all under one manage
ment u Chicago Interest over which '.a
steady and lurgo movement might be
kept up to supply the wanls ol
this market in local, coast
wise and foreign trade. Except
In provisions, and in them only partially
Chicago has hitherto furnished nono of
our supplies. Hitherto wo havo been
dependent on a precarious, Irregular nnd
uneven support from other markets. In
tlia winter season this Is particularly the
case, and it is in winter the
Northern routes aro suspended in
ono direction and overtaxed In
tho other. Railroad management
on lines ruuulug south Is far less dilllcult,
and considerably less expensive, during
tho winter than ou tho lines connecting
the west with the east. If we leave out
of the question grain In bulk tor Euro
pean markets, there Is still left a largo
business to bo done In supplying the
local, coastwise and Island demand. Tho
foreign shipment of bulk corn last year
reached 3,-lfi9,300 bushels, including
80,514 bushels to Mobile. But
of corn In sacks our receipts reached
l,108,BCa sacks or 2,771,408 bushels o
which, exclusive of 103.004 , tacks or
380,935 bushels, sent to Europe, there
was distribution ooiiIwIm of 337,665
sacks or bil.iwS bushels, tho resldue'oi
tlin. receipts, CJS.C04 sacks, or 1,571,-
510 bushels, being sold here to the
local trade. A few million bush
els of grain Is not much In computing
the business of a city where they count
by the mlllion.jct It (s not unworthy of
consideration, more especially when It Is
remembered that tho aggregates ot tho
supply increase from year to year, and
mayrequlro the cultivation ol new out
lets. We say nothing of wheat, oats and
riour, all of which, but particularly flour,
and here a large distribution, both foreign
and coasiwiso. To. move these products
Chicago is already abundantly supplied
w ith rail tonnage, and we at title end of
the line have all needed terminal facilities.
Oar railroads run to the very banks of
the river in such close proximity to ocean
ve.-sel-ijtliat transfers can be made direct
ly from the cars into thu vessels, at a
cost only of lc. per bushel.
"But If Chicago shall regard the rail
roading too great, (although It is About
the same as from that city to New Vork)
why" not make Cairo the Buffalo of the
Southern route, establish adequate ele
vators there, and have a Chicago barge
line between Cairo and New Orleans.
Operating in that way grain can bo laid
down in New Orleans at almost lake
and eaual rate, ami certainly
much below the cost ol all rail transfers
to New V ork, Cairo is practically Jielow
tm y.'.ax point, and from thence to New
Orleans there are none ol the hindrances
to naviiMtjon tlutexistin the .Mississippi
riv r between St. Louis and Cairo, 'ihe
proper development and patronage ot
this route would give to Chicago an easy
and successful winter outlet, and a com
plete control over all southern markets,

creasing the Mist ribiitlon of Chicago- made
"For years St. Louis said if New Or.?
leans would secure adequate ocean
tonnage, she would furnish the necessary
cargoes. In response wo lined our
wharves with steamships, but St. Louis
could do little or nothing. Outsido of
special bins belonging to millers her

less than 100,000 bushels. For years she
begged for steamers from this port to

ment ot all claim", and lnltiirinciii ol mf-
yertised attractions is any claim to merit
and commendation, certainly this show
is worthy ol approbation.
-Mr. Kobbins, the proprietor, was found
to be a genial, Irani; and business-like
gentleman. Tho entire show Is first
class, the performers are artists of merit,
and all, including the laboring people
and attaches, are sober, polite and well
behaved people. Not a caseol intoxi?
cation or boisterous conduct was witness
ed during their entire stay.
A most remarkable feature observable
was that there was no complaint ot visi
tors loosing money by sharpers and gam
blers, and the absence ot aU the usual
pernicious features of side shows and
snares lor the unwary.
The street parade was unusually fine,
and the show itself all that could be
asked, coming fully up to the bills. Cers
Lainly it is seldom a more quiet, orderly
and welt disposed circus establishment
ever makes its brief stay any place.
.Mr. Burr Bobbins, in order to more
lully excel, had greatly augmented,
added and replenished tho American
show, with entirely new r.nd rcsplend
ant chariots, tableau cars and cages; bar
ness and accoutrements, as well as re
plete the list ol performers and trained
animals, so that taken in nil the Urand
Allied shows will present a Leviathan
amusement organization unprecedented.
