For many jears Mr. Halston lived at Sy

first broke forth la this section of the coun

107,179, averaging 811,721 per firm,
against 10,023 last year, about 15 per
cent more. Tho rate of commercial
mortality, 2.34 failures In a quartet
for every 1,000 firms In business, is
lower than last year, and the pro
portion of defaulted liabilities to
tho solvent business represented
by payments through clearing houses
Is but 2.40 per 81,000 against 2.77 last

dispatch to Ambassador Hayard which
will soon bring the matter to un issue.
This dispatch is of a most positlvo
and unequivocal nature. As soon as
it shall be placed before the llritisli
government it will raise an issue which
can be settled only by the retreat of ono
or the other governments. The stand
taken by the United States In this dis
patch is ono that involves the oldest
and most sacred traditions of the Mon
"Few moro serious questions havo
presented themselves to an American
administration within recent years.
The decision of the president and his
cabinet advisers, after careful discus
sion and painstaking investigation,
is that the bold and consistent
policy shall be adopted-, and this
policy has been formulated In the dis
patch to Ambassador Hayard. The
dispatch meets England's rejoinder
with a reaffirmation of the principles
of the original contention ex
pressed in phrases which leavo
no possibility of doubt as to tho

Texas coast on tho Gulf of .Mexico, and.
Whereas, The western states conference has
assembled at Topeka, Kan , on October 1, 1891,
for tho purpose of devising the best possible
means of utilizing such deepwater, and of se
curing the greatest benent therefrom to tho
producers and consumers of tho western ittatoi

and place as they sco proper. If at any tlmo
they deem it expedient, and to do all other
things necessary to secure the fullest benefits
that can bo derived from u complete utlllza'
tlon of such deep water.

tho cheapest posslblo rate, and
Whereas, Tho competition afforded by deep
waterways as a matter of fact is found to bo
benellcial to railroads by rellowng them of

off tho Mexican coast near San Juan
de Ulloa in 1590.
Six years later a fearful storm In the
niscayan bay caused the loss of forty
ono vessels belonging to the fleet of
Admiral Martin do l'adilla.
Not long after this Admiral Marquis
de Santa Cruz lost ten vessels, with 2,
300 men, on the Corslcan coast
After a long pauso Gen. Jose Pizarro
lost five men-of-war in an engagement
with the English In 1741.
Within the last 125 years tho records
aro much easier of access and the
figures can be given absolutely correct.
In this time tho Spaniards lost twelv
large battleships under steam and
twenty-one first-class sailers, with
1,570 guns; twenty-tree frigates, with
BOO guns, and morn than 100 gunboats,
torpedo boats, brigs, galeotes, etc. The
loss of life in this period is conserva
tively estimated at 20,500 men.
Thus the worst enemy of Spanish
supremacy on tho Rcas seems to be
other than man. More than double
the number of ships havo been lost by
the inclemency of tho elements than
were lost in battle. Philadelphia
