New York, MayS -The imports of mer
chandise at the port of New York this
week were extraordinarily large, and fore
shadow plainly further export of specie.
The figures are $18,382,000, an increase
or $3,596,000, as compared with the pre
vious week, and of $8,037,000, as com
pared witli the corresponding week of last
year. The custom-house returns of Imports
are the more significant in view of the fact
that exports of merchandise from this port
for the week ending last Tuesday were a
little less than $7,000,000, showing an ex
cess of imports over cxjorts at this port
alotieof over$l 1,000,000, ornbout $3,000,
000 more Ihnnlnst week. As the move
ments of merchandise in and out of this
port arc a fair index of the country's for
eign trade movements as a whole, It is
not surprising that the shipments of specie
during the last two weoks foot up nearly
$9,000,000, and that drawers of exchange
look Tor f urtlier shipments next week. The
projective changes in the tarirf are, of
course, responsible for the phenomenal im
portations. The weekly statem?ntof averages of the
associated banks this week shows the
withdrawals of legal tenders to obtain
gold for export. The banks have lost in
legal tenders $6,688,000. They still
hold $90,000,000 in legal tender, more
than $87,500,00 in specie, and report a
Mirplus reserve of more than $4-1,000,000,
The Treasury's gold balance is still nearly
50 per cent in excess ot the $100,000,000
which it is popularly supposed the Govern
ment is required to hold.
The dealing in Chicago Gas was the only
feature of today's market. Nearly half
the sales wure made by one trader. Chicago
was also a moderate seller, a. circumstance
that revived reports, for which, so far as
can be learned, there is no basis, that the
consolidation measure has met with some
obstacle in the Illinois legislature.

There is some -difference of opinion as
to Omaha, which has been such a go:d
thing for those who had the tip to buy
before the recent line Use. home people
believe now that the end of the rise has
come for the present, and that nothing ex

Topics is of this opinion. There are others,
however, who believe that Omaha is a
great purchase still. This from Bow,
Jones & Co. on this question is interesting:
There is evidence that a large part of
the recent selling of Omaha has been on
short account. Last night 6,000 bhares
of the stock were called Trom borrowers.
There has been seldom a cae of u more
complete misapprehension of the position
tlun bcems to have existed regarding
Omaha and the dividend question. Noth
ing could lave been more plainly stated
at the time of the declaration of the divi
dend in January than the fact then stated
by us, that the dividend was au annual
dividend. Yet It appears that quite a large
number of people have been under the im
pression that the dividend was semi-annual
ani that another dividend would be made
this summer So far as we understand the
case there has been at no time in the
minds of the management any question as
to the making of anything taut annual divi

The situation with regard to Chicago Gas

forcible as ever. There seems every pros

The fact must not be lost sight of in all
this discussion of Sugar's troubles with
Congress, that the dividend will shortly be
due again, and that it will unquestionably
bo paid. It is only three weeks now before
this 3 per cent, paid every quarter, will be
distributed. Congress may not do as much
for Sugar ultimately as this beautiful
schedule now arranged does, but there is
no question that tho company will be able
to earn 12 per cent a j'ear dividends and
more. From now until the time of the next
dividend, the general course of Sugar bhould

Gen. Grnnt'sPinno I'layiug.
Grant stories arc now in order, and one
told by a White House attache today has
probably never been printed before. It was
a matter of current history thatGen. Grant
did not know how to whistle, nor could he
turn a tune if his life depended upon it. On
one occasion, when an attendant came to
deliver cards from a party of callers, he
found President Grant sitting at a piano in
one of the upper rooms of the White House
drummingaway witiia two-fingere.xercise.
Mrs. Grant was an aiuusedspectatorof the
general's piano exercises, and neither of
them heard the messenger at the door with
the visiting cards.
Finally, however, the attendant opened
the door, but this did not in thelcastdls
concert the President, who kept on prac
ticing as though he was really enjoying it.
"Here are the cards, Ulys," said -Mrs. Grant,
