Several of the beet counties m the state do
not show aa large a surplus as they actually
have, because they aupply the large number of

There are eight counties la the state that
have neither rail nor liver shipping facilities,
hence they do not appear in this investigation.
The surplus from the eight counties la shipped

Some commodities from the counties border-

sounded a note of warning yesterday
to those health officers in the coun

vince the country that cholera is near
at hand. .Prof. Hamilton takes the
view that while there ia danger there
absolutely no occasion for alarm.
Unnecessary and repeated warning, he
says, are liable to produce a panic and
result injuriously to the World .Colum

"I think there ia absolutely no oc
casion lor alarm, although there is
really reason for extreme vigilance on
the part of those entrusted with the
arrangement of our sanitary matters.
The national and local authorities have
better sanitary arrangements than ever
before; the laws are more practical and
itary science has more resources
than formerly. The sanitary officers
throughout the country are fully alert,
but some them seem to forget that one
of the most important duties of an
officer charged with sanitary adminis
tration is the prevention of paliic.
Panic which paralyzes the ind ns tries
snd dries np the channels of trade does
almost as mnch barns aa the epidemic
itself. There is no need of fear that
cholera may spread if it does secure a

MOSSY FOB THS MOTSstBSTOF TR CaWPa,
The demand for money to nuove tha
crops began appreciably oa tha first
of the present month. It ia now .
very near ita highest tide. Since An- '
gust I tha treasurer has seat out be
tween t,000,000 and t7,0O0,000 in small
notes for use in various parts of tha
country, principally in the west, north
west, south and southwest. The de
nominations of these notes have been
ones, twos, threes and fives. They are
silver certificates. United States notes
and United States treasury notes. Tha
principal demand just now is from
Texas and Louisiana, while Iowa aad
Nebraska lead the group of states in
which they are located.
Mr. Whelpley, the acting secretary
of the treasury, says that tbe demand
for money to move the crops compared
very favorably this year with tha last.
This despite tbe fact that th banks la
the west and southwest were, when
the demand first began to be felt.
pretty well supplied with money of tha
denominations needed. Money is being
sent this year, he continued, at a mneh
lower rate than ever before. To all
points east of the Mississippi it costs
but fifteen cent per 11,000. There ia
no regular rate for that portion of tha
country west of the river, but it is very
much lower than it was last year or
any previous time in the history of
the treasury. Hertofore transporta
tion of notes for use in the crop move
ment has cost from seventy-fire cents
to 1 1.85 per 1,000.
