CHARGES NOT EXCESSIVE.
Duties Paid by Klondike Miners Are
According to Schedule.
Mr. Charles F. F. Adam, first secretary
of the Britibh legation, has telegraphed
Secretary Sherman that the Canadian gov
ernment doce not exact exorbitant duties
on goods taken to Klondike. He says
the Canadian customs charges on miners
outfits for the Klondike gold fields ar
riving from Dyea, Alaska, and other points,
art- tliofce autliorized by the ordinary rev.
enue law of .Canada.
He says no special or unusual regula
tions -were made for the occasion. On
the contrary, the instructions were to ex
empt ir'nors blankets, personal clothing
in use and broken packages of provisions
being used: also cooking utensils In use
"To make food allowance clear," Mr.
Adam said, "In'-tructions have been given
for the season to customs officials at
Tagibh to exempt 100 pounds of food for
Journey, charging ordinary customs duty
only on excess."
The Klondike Situation.
To tlie Editor of The Times:
As an 'American citizenlet me thank you
for your Pdltorlal on "The Klondike Out
rage,' which should be read and pondered
by every American who believes that this
coiintrj has any rights which England Is
bound to resiect. It may Jar upon the
delicate susceptibilities of Anglo maniacs,
hut it will strike an -nnswerlug chord In
the breast of every American in whose
veins fluwi the blood, or in whose heart
lives the memory, of the sires of TO.
.Nothing can be more galling to the true
American than tlie utter neglect with
which our Government, while reaching
eagerly across the seas, for a, colony of
foreign lepers, ha.s permitted, without a
protect, British encroachment upon our
northern border, and allows the Canadian
government to take undisputed possession
of an American Golconda, fill it with a
military police, appropriate one half of the
gold fields to its own uses, levy royalties
upon thelegltimate owners for working the
remainder, and enforce It.-, illegal and un
just edicts by an arbitrary system of con
fiscation and eviction.
Conceding even, for the sahe'of thf argu
ment, that the Klondike fields He within
Canadian boundaries. such arrdgant greed
is scarcely in accordance with the "Inter
national comity" so harped upon by Brit
tell Journals when some powerful nation is
to be cajoled out of some privilege or
favor, or cheated diplomatically out of
seme right, and is but a poor Tequital for
line American liberality which has throwir
Jt.s iniup open to the world, without royal
ities, reservations, or ejectments. '
Of course, the Canadian policy is In full
accord with the grasping tactics which
have made Great Britain the buccaneer of
the world, butir there beinourAdminlstra-'

memories of their former greatness, and
are not disposed to be subjected by Britain
to the treatment sh has metd out to the

The Department or Agriculture is re
sponsible for the assertion tnat $500,
OOO.oOO is the amount which has been
or will be distributed among the farmers
ns the result of advanced prices for thld
season's crops, as compared with those
of laxl year. This enormous euni of money
has not been absorbed by the speculator
and middleman, but is going into the ac
tual" poVVfesion of the producers.
Or this sum $410,000,000 has been
realized on eigiit specialties or agricultural
induct ry The other $90,000,000 is
divided among tlie olid 8 and ends that
represent the pecuniary results of a far
mer's labor To this total millions of
dollars are dally being added by steady
increase of prices in the open markets.
These figures" are "based upou Che most
careful computations mude by experts
in the Department of Agricultuie The
return from certain crops, especially corn,
arc not yet sufficiently definite to esti
mate approximate yields.
'the indications arc that the total ot an
farming product will be a trifl-j less than
thee of last year, in spite of which higher
prices will mean more money for the
farmer. Tliu is especially noticeable in
potatoes, which now command a price
just double that realized last year, by
which the farmers will reap a benefit equal
to a crop of half a billion Instead of 250,
000,000 bushels. It Is an invariable, rule
that a mall crop of a given product causes
materially enhanced values, except In cases
where roreigu complications affect the result-According
to figures furnished by Col
Jotcph 11 Brigham, Acting Secretary of
Agriculture, the 'yields Tor this year will
nut. prpbably, dirfer much from those ot
last year. In some instances the'figures
mny be slightly in excess and other
products may note a slight decrease.
The eight pioducts chosen as illustrating
rhe vast luancial benelits accruing to
the farmers of the Uulted States from the
recent rapid ris in prices are cattle.
wheat, corn ', potatoes, cotton, sheep, swine
and wool. Careful comparison has been
made or the prices now prevailing with
those which obtained during the whole
of last year The following table shows
an inriow or $410,000,000 to the pockets
of the farmers.
"Wheat , 85,000,000
Corn .' 85,000,000
To this laige suir., which is already in
sight, must bt added an estimate of $90,
000,000 Tor the luci eased profits that have
been realized on crops of oats, barley, rye,
lipy, flax, hops, and other miscellaneous
but valuable products or the farm. No
allowance has l;en made for an Increased
or diminished production or for an increase
or decrease in the amount of live stock
the farmer may have for sale this year as
compared with last year. But it may
safely be afrirmPd that the increase in
prices hi during ths last- few months Is
to th advantage of the farmer by not
less than $300,000,000.
Of ttere conditions Acting Secretary
"The advance over last year's prices has
already been considerable. Wheat, corn,
potaioes, mecs pork, milch cows and beef
cattle, hogs sheep, and wool have ad
vanced suarply in price. There lias also
been a -lighc advance In the price of cot
ton Potatoes are bringing double what
they brought last year. This advance in
priced of farm products will have a very
ravoiab'e effect upon the farmers, while
the crops will probably not be so large as
thoa of last year they will bring the farmer
a good deal more money, and cost less for
handling or the same, thus Increasing his
profits. It Its not advisable to give esti
mates upon this year's crops, as we do
not know just what the yield will be, buc
the ndvance in the price of wheat over
the price paid one year ago would amount,
on tlie crop of last year, to $85,000,000
"The advance In the price of corn over
the same date last year Is more than 3
cents a bushel, and on last year's crop
would amount to about $S5,000,000. The
advance in the price ot sheep and woolon
account or tariff legislation, over the
prices of bheep and wool last year would
amount to about $33,000,000- The ad
vance in the price of cattle and hogs would
represent many millions of dollars. There
has been a large crop of hay out, for
which Tair prices aro being received If
prices remain as they are or advance they
will bring a large amount of money to the
farmer over what he received for crops
last year. It Is impossible to ei4imate
the good that will result frgrn the in
croas?d amount or money distributed in the
"Debts will be paid -and Improvements
made on farms and farm buildings, thus
giving employment to labor and changing,
to a very considerable extent, the condi
tions which exist in many sections or the
country. Tlie Impression is quite general
that very large crops mean piosperlty
for the farmer. This is not true. Abnor
mal crops, unless there is an unusual de
mand, are frequently grown at a loss
instead of a profit. An avert-gc or a
inoderale crop, sufficient to supply the
demand, leaves more profit. The four
largest crops or corn grown bincc 1881
were Worth leas than the rour smalfpst."

A WIRE TO DAWSON CITY
The Canadian Government Proposes
to Build One.
It Asks' for the Co-oporntlon of This
-Country in Tronioting Access
to the Mines.
Telegraphic communication between this
country and the Klondike regio may be
cv.abllsbert before next August A propo
sltion to ronstruct a telegraph line to
Dawsoa City has been made by the
Canadian government to tlie Department ot
State and referred by Secretary Sherman
to Secretary Bliss ot the Interior Depart
ment for consideration by him.
"While reserving the right to either coun
try , pending thtvfcettleinint of tlie boundary
line netween Canada and this country, the
people behind the scheme urge the ex
pediency ot building a permaucnt route
which will provide acces? to the interior
at all seasons ot the year. The route
favored by the Canadians is from the head
of winter navigation on the Lynn Canal,
which runs from Juneau beyond Dyea and
Chllkatformlngpartofth'j present route, and
thtn to cross the mountains by White
Pass, or any other accessible pass, and
proceeding north to Fort Selkirk, and from
there to the Klondike.
In its proposition to this Government,
the Canadian government declares it is
ready to undertake open communication
bj- tontrufting a telegruph line from the
head of winter navigation on the X,ynn
Canal, traversing a distance of eighty
miles across the summit or the mountain
range to a point northeast of the moun
tain range, fmra which a trail can be
followed to Fort Selkirk and to Klondike.
The Canadian government also slguiries
Kb intention, In case the proposition lb
ariopted, to erect places ror shelter from
rorty to firty mile- apart,a)ong the Hue,
and keep up dog trains during the months
or winter for the .)nveyauce of mails to
and from the interior.
In a communication to Secretary Gage
regarding this proposition the minister ot
the interior or Canada jsays:
"The object is not to induce auy one to
go to that remote country at the present
time Until better means of communica
tion are established a man undertakes
serious risks in going there, unless he has
sufficient resources to tide over the long
winter After September egress from the
country Is practically Impossible until the
following June, and a person who haj not
ben successful In locating a paing claim
has to depend for his subsistence upon
rinding employment. Wages are at times
abnormally high, but the labor market is
very narrow, and easily overstocked,
'It is estimated that up to the middle ot
May 1,500 to 1.000 persons had crossed
Djea Pass this jear. Several hundred
more will go by steamer up the Yukon.
Whether emplojment will be available for
all and for the considerable population
already in the district is somewhat doubt
ful. It will, therefore, be wise for those
who contemplate going to the Yukon dis
trict to give serious consideration to the
matter before coming to a decision."
Another View of It,
To the Fditor or The Times:
The intense satisfaction exhibited by
Democrats over Mr. McICinley's recent civil
service order Is perhaps natural. Were T
a Demociatic officeholder I would per
haps share in the-general joy now prevail
ing in Democratic circle. But you wi'l
pardon me if I suggest that the word
'sioilsmcn," so freely used to hold us
up to ridicule by the orriceholders and
the piess and the saii-Uy members or the
Civil Service Rerorm Leaguer does not
intimidate or make" us ashamed. These
same officeholders who denounce us as
'spoilsmen"' were themselves spoilsmen
four years ago of the mostapproved type.
They took everything In sight except a
civil service examination. President Mc
Klnley less than a year ago wasinofflce-j"c-ckcr,
and so were tlie members of his
CabTnet. We were invited by the thou
sands' to visit Canton and "walk on the
grass" ot Major Mckinley's front yard.
He never got tired of us until by hard
woik we swung him into the Presidency.
How beautifully he talked to us and bow
he "vav'ed telling the people whathls real
civil son-Ice -views were is a matter of
history. At home during the canvass We
were American citizens and wc came to
Washington expecting to find him the
:ame gental, smiling gentleman: but im
agine oui burprlsc to find him completely
changed and joining the Democratic orrice
holders in holding us up to scorn as "spoils
men." A party that does not take care
or its honest, Intelligent workers cannot,
succeed and does not deserve to succeed.
The civil service law Is repugnant to the
Idea of our free institutions and if It
Is not wiped off the statute books by
McICinley's Administration will be by
Brian's. Mr. McKinley has committed him
self to sustaining an officeholding aris
tocracy. The country accepts tlie issue.
"Later onMr. McKinley will hear it thunder!
Tho boys, will not go to the trenches again

The total sales of stocks today was 40 1,

A gradual change In the tendency of
the foreign dealings in the local market-
was apparent last week, and while the
arbitrage hotibes were fairly active on
both sides ot the market today, their pur
chases were estimated as larger than their
6nles, the rirst being, furthermore, In tha
higher priced bhares. Advances were noted
in the American division ot the London
stock market this morning, despite the
weakness in its other departments. The
prevalent speculative temper makes it
quick to seize upon any circumstance of a
favorable nature, and the foreign tendency
toward American stock was an in
fluence for good In the early dealings,
wherea6 had It beeu contrarily disposed
it would have beeu held of little account
There was a further spirited advance In
the grain market, but the good effect of
this development was subsequently quail
fled by reports of damage to the spring
wheat crop. As harvesting Is now In
progress in all except the most northern
sections, these reports lacked substance,
but they carried some weight' In the
The highest range of prices yet recorded
In the general market, and particularly Jn
the granger shares, was made in theiirst
hour of bu-dness today. From this level
declines were general in the stocks rr.-jst
directly Influenced by the reports ot crop
damage, but there was little liquidation,
and the market became very dull on the
decline, the total dealings being the small

features of the market were New York
Central, Chesapeake and Ohio, Sugar ai.d
American Spirits, and thefallureoriiquhla
tion to rollow the rumors of crop damage
caused the traders to cover the tto;ks
in the afternoon that they o;d In the
morning, their, purchases being folio vad
by general recoveries.
The money market again showed evi
dences of lucre-thing firmness. Expecta
tions of very favorable reports or rail
way earnings ror the becond week of
August were sustaining factors in the
market, and Burlington and Quincy, on
which the quarterly dividend will be de
clared this week, was .pecially afrected
by that circumstance. The advance in
Sucar Refining carried that stock to the
highest figures in its history, but there
was no special gossip arrectlng it, beyond
the rumor? usual at this period or un
increase Jn the rate of dividend. Amoug

the cotton oil shares and In Tere Jiar

There was very evidently a disposition
to test the market yesterday. The pro

Inclination to realize during much of the

prices, and the big interests that were
So plainly beneath the market last week
seemed to stand aside for a time. To
ward the afternoon this disposition was
e&pecially noticeable in the granger stocks,
traders apparently endeavoring to make
the clovj lower. It is probable that just
at tho present moment the speculators
and the larger interests ia the market
may. be wilting to let prices go off two
or three points. This will not surprise

It must be acknowledged, however, that
In such a 'market as-this nobody feels

a comparatively stagnant market th-s
afternoon, ir the stocks had been ow Kd
by the prorcssiona"! men exclusively iLd
sold to the public, this would hiean -e-i s

case- We think the stocks were sold by
one set of. bulls and bought by anther
set v ho have been making money. The
new holders, therefore, have plenty of
mouey and plenty of hope, and we see
no reason for expecting them to let po
their grip. Some long Etock came Into
the market at 149 1-2 on Sugar aud held
the price down for the moment ff it

ir one is disposed to sell anything in
the present market. Manhattan is prob
