dent Roosevelt has made up his mind that
the public will support him in the retire

Under the law he has the right to issue a
peremptory order relieving Miles from
duty and this there is no longer doubt he
has determined to do. It appears to tie
only a question of time.
The president wants to put a r:u;etus on

been suspected of presidential ambitions.

will get it if he has to pry out the sec

NEW YORK, April C-Another strange

Giving Some Concern,
NEW YORK, April 6.—The financial
situation is sound and generally satis
factory. Desirabie investments are in
very good demand and exceedingly
scarce, even at present high level. Hence
nrst-elas.s railroad securities are held
with tenacious firmness which seems to
grow with the continued and wholly un
expectedly favorable railroad earnings.
The most sanguine expectations rri this
respect have been far surpassed, and
conservatives are often afraid to express
their convictions. The real reason of
railroad prosperity, however, lies not so
much in the increase in the volume of
traffic as in the better rates now ob
tained. Jn not a few instances the vol
ume of traffic is not eciual to last year,
but high and well maintained ratt> ex
plain current railroad profits. The great
value of the community-of-interest idea
and its control of tho rate situation is
now being illustrated. It has more to
do with the present high values of rail
road shares than any other single In
fluence; and so it is easy to understand
the sensitiveness of the market to any
legislative attacks that would alter these
Roosevelt CMtttl Aniiclj.
There is no doubt much concern in
railroad circles over the aggresive and
antagonistic attitude of the administra
tion towards railroad interests and the
outcome of recently begun proceedings
will be watched with intense interest.
The public want stability of rates above
;iil else; they also want reasonable rates,
and if legislation is eoniined to these
two limitations no danger is anticipated.
But the public also want competition in
rates; something entirely incompatible
with stability and equality of rates. Be
tween these conflicting demands the leg
islature must stand and decide which is
best for all concerned; not forgetting
that the many thousands of stockhold
er.-! and those dependent upon them have
rights as well as excitable, easy-talking
shippers who disregard every interest
but their own.
industrial Reports lnfavor*lile.
The most questionable point in the
stofk market i 3 among the individuals.
During the last few months we have
had a succession of unfavorable reports
from these concerns, showing decreased
earnings, mismanagement and a general
failure of the roseate promises in early
prospectuses. Under such conditions the
loads of overcapitalization begin to have
their effect, and not a few concerns,
vhich it is unnecessary to mention,
have already undergone marked declines
in their quotations. The future of this
branch of the market is not promising.
The day of reckoning, liquidation and re
organization must come. At present it
is delayed by the large demand of all
kinds of manufactured products; in
short, by the general activity ot busi
ness As soon, however, as this begins
to subside, prices decline and increased
expenses cut into earnings, then we may
look for results whiclx everyone hopes
may be postponed as long as possible.
The danger is not near, but It is real
and should not be lost sight of.
In the money market there Is little
change. There is no scarcity of funds
for good borrowers, but rates are steady
and Ukely to remain so until the rc
s.rves begin to grow. Whether Europe
will draw freely upon us for gold or not
remains to be seen. British and Russian
leans are in prospect, and these woul 1
no doubt cause some disturbance in the
international money markets.. In mis
connection it is well to remember that
our imports are steadily rising and ex
perts declining. rendering impossible
the remarkable trade balances winch
were such a stimulating feature in 190 l
Good Spriiiß Trade in Prospect.
General business continues in good con
dition. High wages,-are: promoting active
consumption in all lines of manufactured
coeds; and, as distributors throughout
the country appear to .. be carrying small
stocks, the prospect, is for a good spring
trade At the same time the rapidly
increased cost of living is beginning to
Cheek consumption; and may soon ex
press itself in more*.cautious buying in
th* wloHsale markets. The Iron and
st -l industries continue in tlic-ir state
of ' phenomenal, activity; though new
ccmpt't"t'on is making itself felt, and.
whii* irony of the mills hold orders, .that
will keep them busy for mentis. Mill
prices at first hands are not so steady
as a month or two ago. T-h3 textile
trades seem well employed; orders In
sight are plentiful, hence the willingness
of both cotton and. woolen manufactur
ers to grant their employes advances in
wages. Any curtailment, however, in the
demand for staple cotton goods with cot
ton at its present high level would se
riously inconvenience cotton manufactur
ers: and the woolen mills are not en
joying tha same degree of prosperity th.it
they did a year ago. Very soon tne crop
outlook will be a factor; and th > indi
cations are that high prices will en
courage a larger acreage for corn an.i
cotton, if not for wheat also. Bountiful
harvests would certainly insure us an
other year of prosperity.
Apprehension Over Gol«l.
The apprehension of gold shipments
still hangs over the market. But there
is no fear of the money situation being
disturbed thereby, as any gold ship
ments will be doubly offset by the return
of funds from interior points to this
center from this time forth until we get
back all the money sent from here for
crop-moving purposes hist fall, and this
will remain here until the next crop
mov?ment. which will be about the mid
dle of next August. Meanwhile money
will gradually grow easier and rates low
er, and the stock market cannot fail to
be stimulated by plethoric money, as it
will furnish facilities to operators to car
ry stocks on easy terms throughout the
summer months. I look for more aelfv
ity in the stock market and a higher
range of prices generally in the Imme
diate future. —Henry Clews.

the other hand, disclose a considerable
falling off when contrasted with the trade
of the year preceding. The various
products of agricultural received from
foreign sources during 1901 had an aggre
gate value of only $392,000,000, or $23,000,000
less than in 1900.
In comparison with the value of our
agricultural Imports, our agricultural
exports show the exceptionally large ex
cess of 556&,060,00 d.
FignrM Are \ot Complete.
It is further shown that owing to tha
fact that our import and export trade
with Hawaii and Porto Rico was not in
cluded, as previously, in the foreign com
merce returns of the United States for
1901, a comparison of the statistics for
that year and ihe year preceding is not
altogether saisfactory, and that to make
an accurate comparison of our total agri
cultural imports and exports for 1901 and
the year before, the 1901 figures should
be increased to the extent of our trada
with Hawaii and Porto Rico, but com
plete statistics as to the value of the
products of agriculture exchanged in that
trade during 1901 were not to be had. Tn
1900 our agriculturay imports from Ha
waii and Porto Rico were valued at
about $24,000,000, and our agricultural ex
ports to those islands at about $5,000,000.
Cotton Exports (irow Larger.
The leading 1 items among our agricul

hides and skins, silk, vegetable fibers',
fruits and nuts, tobacco, wool, tea, wines,
cocoa, vegetable oils, distilled spirits!

During 1901, for the first time in sev
eral years, our exports of cotton ex
ceeded in value our exports of bread
stuffs. After cotton' and breadstuffs,
which held the first and second places
in our agricultural export trade, meat
products formed the largest item. Addi

named in the order of their value, were

So, Though Well Educated, He Made
His Mark 200.
The best illustration of true politeness
in th-e" memory of an elde*!y lawyer in
Pennsylvania was shown in an episode
which came under his own observation.
.Among his clients was a wealthy Irish
man, a contractor. In a certain case t
was necessary for this man ami a friend
of his, also a contractor, to si^a ;heir
names to a legal document. The lawyer's

Edwin Miirkhum is excessively modest—
for a poet. So all who know him per
sonally will appreciate his painful em
barrassment und^r circumstances which
befell him at a recent public entertain
ment. He occupied a conspicuous stage
box with a party of friend*, and was
recognized and pointed out by many per
sons in the audience as a part of the
show. The programme was a miscel
laneous one, by amateurs vaguely put
down for "solos" ami "recitations, se
lected," and the box party chatted gayly,
with only a perfunctory regard to what
was doing on the stage. Finally, as a
lady elocutionist was curtseying off the
atage, after having done her little turn,
one of the party said:
"ivet's give her a hand, just for luck.
The entertainment is for charity, any

he leaned over the front of the box, clap
The audience seemed to take up the cue
like a trained claqueur. A perfect tempest
of applause brought out the blushing:

encore. Intermingled with the applause
seemed to be shouts of merriment. Mark
