It In Reflected In the Statement of
the ANMoeinted Bankx of Nevr

Deposit* Falling Off In Surplus
Reserve Remarkable Activity
in the Hond Market.
NEW YORK, Aug. 6.— The Financier
this week says:
•The statement of the associated
banks of New York shows some rather
heavy changes for the week ending
Aug. 6. loans having increased $12,733,
--100 and deposits $16,371,500. The gain
in cash for the week was $1,831,800, and
the surplus reserve has fallen off about
$2,000,000, owing to increased require
ment? due to the expansion in de
posits. The statement seems to re- j
fleet as much as anything else the i
progress of the recent financial opera- |
tion of the Great Northern railway,
which has increased its preferred stock
by $25,000,000, of which $15,000,000 is is-
Bued to stockholders at par for cash
to redeem the outstanding collateral
l>onds, and $10,000,000 in exchange for I
the stock of one of the leased lines, j
which had been previously distributed
as a stuck dividend. The Chase Na
tunal. through which this operation
has been transacted, showed a gain of
over $6,000,000 in deposits, and its cash
hi Mings have also expanded over
"The National City bank accounts for
more than a third of the total increase
and has lost about the same In specie.
"The deposit gain seems to be con
fined for the most part to the larger
banks, but in loans an increase runs
lather well through the list.
••The remarkable activity in the bond
market last week has probably operated
to produce some of the changes in the
current exhibit. The banka are still
gaining from the interior, and little, if
any. rediseounting is reported. The
season for this business is now close
at hand: and, while it is not anticipated
that the movement will be heavy, it is
interesting to note that the surplu-B
reserves of the banks are now below
the point reached last year at thi9
time. The decrease in surplus reserves
between July and October 1897 was at
leapt J32.000.000, bringing the excess
$13,000,000. In the last six or seven
weeks the New York banks have re
duced their reserves over $22,000,000,
and have not begun to ship money to
the West. Of course, this decrease r3
due to bond payments from all over
the- country, which have reduced bank
re: erves in New York. The government
holds heavy deposits in this center, so
that what might be called available
and permanent bank money is. not as
heavy a-s has been estimated. But
that anything approaching a stringen
cy or oven long-continued hardness is
possible Is out of the question. Gold

His excellency, the Earl of Aberdeen,
governor general of Canada; the Coun
ter.: of Aberdeen, and a suite that was
modest enough for the entourage of a
traveling vice royal party, spent yes
terday in St. Paul. Their coming and
going was almost unnoticed. They
slipped into town and out without half
of the noise that would have been made
over the sojourn of a railroad magnate.
As Lord Aberdeen said: "We just
dropped in to see my good friend, the
archbishop of St. Paul, and now we
are going on about our business, which
is not very urgent. I like the states
very much, and perhaps ought to spend
some time here now that I am ovor,
but we are very tired of traveling, and
I think we will go direct to Montreal
from heTe. I want rest — we all do, in
The party came in on a special train
of three cars over the Great Northern
from Winnipeg yesterday morning.
Lord and Lady Aberdeen -were travel
ing in the governor general's private
car Victoria. Miss McLeod, the supe
rior of the Victorian order of nuns for
the Dominion, was with them. The
Canadian Pacific special car Satsuma
was occupied by Cap*. G. Thorpe, R.

Lord Aberdeen was in St. Paul once
before, about eleven years ago, but has
few personal acquaintances here. He
has very considerable personal inter
ests in the Northwest, and at one time
was interested in some local ventures.
He is a dark man, on the sunny side
of fifty yet; wears a black beard, whicn
Is somewhat streaked with silver
threads. He does not look the Eng
lishman by any means, for he wore a
Prince Albert coat that fitted him very
well and a pearl-colored Fedora was
crushed well down on his head. He is
spare- boned, loose-jointed and look 3
very much like an American man of
affairs. His reserved manner is not
| different from that of the busy man,
! but when he speaks it is quickly and to
I the point. Yet he has made something
of a reputation in diplomacy as well
as an executive. He is a Scotch baron
and an (.English peer, and has been in
politics all his life. He was in the colo
nial office twenty years ago and was
later in Paris as secretary with Lord
Lytton, the British ambassador. His
first trip to this country was during
the- time the Marquis of Aberdeen was
governor general of Canada, and on
his return to England he was appoint
ed lord lieutenant of Ireland by Glad
stone. That was in the 80's, just after
the killing of Lord Cavendish and
Burke. On leaving that poat he re
turned to England, and was out of of
fice until, in 1893, he was appointed
to the governor generalship of Canada.
Lord Aberdeen is a man of considerable
wealth, and the loss of income he suf
fered by the shrinkage of rents in
Scotland he more than made up by
j laTge investments in the lumber and
! salmon canning interests in British Co

now in charge of Lord Aberdeen's lum

Lord and Lady Aberdeen drove out to
call on Archbishop Ireland soon after

car. On the box with the driver of the

man's gentleman, with an intimation
on each side of hts face that he could
grow a lovely pair of mutton chops, if
it were quite the proper thing.
"I say," he continued, "don't you
know we like this part of the country.
The railway service is really h'ex
qufsite. Why, they poke us h'along with
no trouble at all," and he looked be
lvignantly clown en the reporter and
was getting ready to be interviewed
when a carriage swung into sight at
the foot of Siblev street. "Ha," he
ejaculated, losing his air of superiority
at once, "there's hess ex. now."
Lord Aberdeen said that he was trav
eling very quietly and not stopping for
anything in the way of formalities, and
he really did not knov,- that he desired
to talk to the press.
"You see," he said, "I am very nearly
through -with my duties In the Domin
ion now, and it^vould hardly do for me
to talk about politics over there. My
official life in Canada comes to a close
Nov. 12, and I just wanted to have a
look at the country before I went home.
That is all there is to my trip. I have
been to the coa.<=t and looked up some
of my own affairs in the neighborhood
of Vancouver. We have made our way
back leisurely an.l have stopped only
at the territorial capitate. It is some

I have done nothing but marvel at the

I may say that I like everything on

up. We go in for rotation in office and
I have had my term of five years."
Lord Aberdeen was asked as to his
views of the proposed Anglo-American
alliance and declined to be quoted on
the subject, saying that It would
scarcely become him, as an official of
the government, to give utterance to
opinions that might be rendered as offi

she thought it an extremely beautiful
"It is picturesqua to a degree that
reminds me of some of our show places

Is a democratic country, but our mon
ied men have certainly acquired royal
ty's taste for expen«dve living. We
have palaces in this country that the
kings and queens of the old world
would consider fit abodes for the might
iest monarch, and our men of vast
means lack nothing that royalty enjoys
beyond empty honors.
Nor does the wealth of those rulers of
nations surpass that of some of our
rich citizens. The queen of England,
though >the ruler of the biggest and
richest empire the world has ever seen,
is by no means the richest person on
the earlh. In fact, her salary, $1,925,000
a year, is one of the smallest paid to j
any ruler on the globe. And of the
$1,925,000, all except $480,000 is spent by
the lord chamberlain, the master of the
house, and the lord treasurer, who are
responsible for the maintenance of the
And of the $480,000, $180,000 is put by
for a rainy day, so that the exact
amount received by her majesty is only
$300,000, as fixed by parliament.
Compared with the big incomes of the
American millionaires this is paltry in
deed. Hers, too, is the smallest salary
that any British sovereign has ever re
ceived. Most of the queen's predeces
sors on the throne had at least $4,000,
--000 a year.
QUEEN VICTORIA'S LAND.
By economy, and frugality the queen
h&s been able to purchase 37,000 acres
of good land in Great Britain, yielding
a rent roll of about $125,000 a year. She
also owns considerable property in Ger
many, a large quantity in New York
and thousands of acres In Manitoba
and "out West." But with all these
savings she is poorer than many of
our wealthy men.
Claremont House, Osborne and Bal
moral are the private property of the
queen. The first named, standing 1 in
its estate of 460 acres, she bought for
$£70,000 — a decided bargain, for it orig
inally cost Lord Clive $750,000. Balmoral
ard Osborne are said to be worth $2.
--500,000. In addition to her property at
Coburg the queen also possesses a
villa at Baedn, bequeathed to her by
the Princess of Hohenlohe.
The royal family of England is not
only the cheapest that country has
ever had, it is also the most inexpen
sive in the world. The entire expense
of the whole British royal family
amounts to only $825,000 a year, for
against he total expenditure of $2,900,

Nearly all European sovereigns re
ceive much higher salaries than the
queen. The emperor of Russia has
complete control over the revenue of
his country, but he only draws $12,500,
--000 a year. The sultan takes $7,000,000,
the emperor of Austria, $4,650,000, and
Kaiser Wilhelm, $3,650,000. The king
of Italy receives $2,925,000 — the same
cum as the whole British royal family
— and the king of the Belgians gets
only $625,000 a year.
The private property of sovereigns is
also very great. The Russian imperial
family is the richest of all royal hous
es, and probably among commoners
also. Apart from his salary as a ruler,
whidh amounts to $12,500,000 yearly, the
c?ar, as head of the house of Roman
offs, owns 21,000,000 acres of land in
different parts of Russia. These yield
more than $16;000,O$0; $2,500,000 of this
is paid in allowances to forty-six grand
dukes and duohesSes, and the remain
der is at the disposal of the czar, who
thus enjoys the enormous income of
$17,000,000 a year— s2,ooo per hour.
The czar is^lse- *he owner of much

Surely the high water maik of human
affection is the love of an impecunious
young man for a girl whom he has only
known for a fortnight, and whom he
expects never to see again. Such a
love is concocted of the best-selected
circumstances— novelty, despair and a
lack of consequences. Also, the brev
ity of a fortnight concentrates the emo
tions, and concentrated emotions are a
kind of mental bovril. Not only are
they sustaining at the time, but you
can scrape the tin afterward, and man
ufacture quarts of excellent memories.
Of course the fortnight, to be complete,
ought to occu» in summer and to pos

climax were above reproach. Some

there was an old garden at the back of
the house, and the moon was turned
on mulberry trees, box hedges and lav
ender beds in front of them. It was a
situation where a man might almost

she replied. "I hate last anythings.
Aren't they just a little— shop-soiled?"
"Does nothing ever matter?" he ask
"I feel that I ought to come in with
a conversational waltz refrain," she
replied, "but it's difficult even for me
always to be obvious."
The young man looked grieved and
made no answer.

"Surely," she said, "you won't throw
away your opportunities? Aren't you
solns to gaze on th 3 Southern Cross
in a few weeks and think of me?"
"Very likely," he answered quietly.
"That's right," she pursued. "No
young man of feeling, within sighing
distance of the Southern Cross should
neglect it. I, on the other hand,

"Have you been to any theaters late

"No," she said, "but you must have
visited some really pathetic melo

a warm July; .and are you fond of
bicycling? and it's not a bad floor to
"'"Aren't you just a little ungrateful?"
she said. "I only wanted"—
"I understand. A nice, cold Shower
bathos," he answered. "You needn't be
afraid I shall bother you. Only I should
like to thank you for having given ms \
the happiest fortnight of my life, and
to wish you good luck."
"You are," she said, softly, rather
a nice boy." . ,_ .
"Some day," he answered, I trust ;
that I shall be a naety man. A nice j
boy is a thing that is supposed neither |
to mind nor matter." j
"Jack," she said, putting her hand
on his arm, "without prejudice, as tho
lawyers say, would you mind less if it
did matter?" .
"Is it quite Impassible?" he asked.
"Well. Isn't it?" she answered.
"Of course, we ohouia nave to wait,
heeaid; "but couldn't you wait awhile,
"Please don't think me horrid and ,
mercenary," she said. "It isn't alto
gether that; but don't you know what
a long engagement means? It's the
longest thing on earth. It's a mar
ria-ge on the hire-purchase system,
where you pay three times as much
as it's '•worth for a thing that's worn
out before you really get it."
"If I left the service," he urged, "we
should have enough to live on quietly."
"You'd be so content if you did,"
she said, "and our castle in Spain
would be a villa in West Kensington.
No, Jack, it wouldn't do. I'm eorry, but
it wouldn't do. Can't you see?"
"Oh, I see clearly enough," he said,
bitterly. "I hope that, some day, you'll
have a nice, large paper marriage, a la
modiste, with Teal golden wedding b>lls,
and the full approval of the family
"Don't Jack, don't," she answered.
"Can't you see that it takes two to
make a muddle like this? Don't let's
spoil the little time that'B left us. Let
us at least part friends."
"I'm sorry," the .young man said. "I
suppose nothing I could pay would
make any difference?"
"Nothing. I'm afraid."
"Very well. May I, at least, have all
the other dances tonight?"
"Yes, if you want them now," the
young woman said, sadly.
The young man and young woman
enjoyed themselves immensely for tho
rest of the evening, although they im
agined themselves heart-broken. Thp
young man said several things which
he considered really cynical, and the
young woman wallowed in a sense of
martyrdom. They «iid good by in the
cold morning- light, and she allowed
him to kiss her. The kis3 they regard
ed as a kind of sarrpment.
Now, In the ordinary course of eventg,
the episode might have ended satisfac
torily here. The young man would
have blown his nose violently when
the band played "The Girl I Left Be
hind Me!" and murmured tj;e young
woman's name when he felt seasick,
and then relapsed in remembering the
whole thing with a sigh and a com
placent smile. The young woman's
recollection would have expended on
her attitude toward her husband. Till
her husband occurred, she would have
practised recollection but little.
Unfortunately, the Angel of Death,
with his habitual disregard of tb» at-
ness of things, disturbed the even
course of the affair. The young man
had possessed a mercantile cousin and
the cousin, having gone, two or three
days before, to a land where mercan
tile poßßesslona are rigidly excluded
had left the whole of his property to
the young man. His reasons for this
unexpected act of generosity were
probably that he had never met the
young man, -which, in view of the old
gentleman's temper, was an advan
tage, and also that the latter cultivat
ed martial aspirations underneath his
mercantile soul, even to the extent of
being at one time a captain of volun
teers, and regarded the young man
with favor, as being the only military
specimen of the family.
Therefore, when the young man rose
from his brief sleep on the following
morning, he found a solicitor's letter
informing him of his good fortune. At
first, the information appeared too good
to be true, but the additional informa
tion that he was at liberty to draw
on the firm for any reasonable amount
put the truth beyond question. The
fact that he was rich, portentously
rich, at first filled him with an insane
desire to shout. As a silent relief to
his mental tension, he took his slippers
off, and threw them at the door. Then
he put them on again, and lit a pipe.
All his life the young man had been
in straitened circumstances. He had
never had enough pocket money at
school, or a satisfactory allowance
since. Now he felt that he possessed
no single desire which he could not sat
isfy. Visions of infinite possibilities
rcse before him. He even looked at his
pipe with contempt.
"And now," he said to himself, tri
umphantly, "I shall be able to marry
Oddly enough, the young -woman had
not stood in the forefront of the pos
sibilities. He noticed the fact with
something of a start. Romance was
not at its strongest in his mind that
morning, because' the kind person wh?
provided th? dance had also provided
a pale pink champagne, which punish
ed even the most abstemious with the
after horrors of excess.
"Yes," he Insisted to himself, "I
shall marry Kitty. Not much fear of
being poor now."
Then his mind wandered away again
Ito the more inanimate possibilities.
: Should' he stay in the service or not?
On the whole, he thought he would for
■ a while, but he would be inclined to
, exchange into a cavalry regiment. A
few racehorses? Yes. He had just
i begun to contemplate himself leading
I in the Derby winner, when he again
I returned to the young woman.
"Yes," he said to himself, "of course
that's the best; part of it." As a mat
: ter of fact, it was not at all the bast
I part of it. Marriage, in a way, means :
! the end of youth, and the young man |
was just entering on a new world j
which he had never known before. It !
is impossible to be satisfactorily young I
on a limited income. The rosy dreams
that came trooping before his eyes i
were not domestic. To be adequately
j domestic, you must be a little tired of j
i other things— not necessarily vicious
j things, but you must know the sun- j
I shine to appreciate the shade. Half
I against his will, the dream pictures
I told him this. He wanted, though he I
would not admit it to himself, to en- i
joy his own sweet will without any i
These things were hidden as yet I
| from anything but the young man's :
| subconsciousness. As he finished |
dressing slowly, he decided to go at
once after breakfast and tell the young ;
woman of his happiness. The thought
ought to have suggested a triumphal j
I procession, but only prsented itself ;is '
j a logical and obvious proceeding. Also, I
if his feelings had been what he ima;- j
ined them to be, he would have bar>- ]
blpd out his good fortune to the other '
late comers at breakfast. He believ- i
ed that it was romantic to reserve '
[ the news for the young woman, but
the belief was artificial.
He found the young woman sitting
in the sunshine on the lawn. She was
looking, too, preposterously healthy
j and happy, considering the circum
; stances. He was able to explain quite
j intelligibly what had happened, and
the young woman listened and watch- I
ed him quietly. In some ways he was I
a very transparent young man, and
she was a young- woman of precep
"So, now," he concluded, "of course,
we can be married just as soon as ever
"Married? You want to marry me?"
she said, dreamily, as though he Had
suggested a new idea, which, as a
matter of fact, was the case.
"Why, what's the matter, Kitty?
Aren't you glad?" he asked.
"I'm very glad that you'll be rich?"
she answered, with a smile. "What are
you going to do?"
"Oh. have a good time, generally," i
"A good time, generally— generally,"
she repeated, slowly.
"What is the matter. Kitty?" he in
quired, in a puzzled way. "I don't un
"I'm not sure that I do yet," ehe ,
"Surely, after last night" — he burst j
"Last night," she said. "I refused |
you because you were poor. And last I
night was years ago to you."
"You surely don't think I'm such a
cad as to let that make any differ
ence. Of course, I know you were r'.gru
"No, I know you're not a cad, Jack.
You happen t<i be a gentleman. That's
what complicates things so," she saM.
"I don't understand you at all," he
"You're very, very young. Jack," she
answered. He did look very young
that morning, in his new aspect of a

night," he urged?
"If I said yes" — sh3 went on, quietly.
"If you said yes? Don't, you care
far me still?" he asked.
"Wait a moment," she answered. 'If
I said yes, we should be married soon.
Then we should settle down to a quiet,
humdrum, unexciting life. Do you real
ize that? Next year, you wouldn't want
to dance with me all the evening."
"Then, do you mean you don't care
for me?" he asked.
"No, I don't care for you," she said,
deliberately. She had watched his eypa
