editorials in the Iowa 'intr HeyiiUr. pub
lisiied st lies Moines and edited by James

Mills bad announced himself as favoring
a duty on bides. While it was a mani

( 'ies ted to state whether or not the report
had any foundation, and the following
letter was received from him this morn

have vur Ic'ter of the Stub instant, in
closing slip, as you say, from tbe Des
Moines ft'iie Uegttirr, representing me as
favoring a duty on bides. Tbe statement
is false "from skin to core and core back
to skin Sk'mn." I have never intimated
such a thing or anything tike it to any
man living on the contrary, some weeks
ato I was asked by the secretary of tbe
Cattlemen's association of Springfield,
III., to give my views on the subject to
be read to tbe association, and I did so
very britfly and very emphatically hy
saying that under no circumstances
would I vote to put a tai on wool.
"I am opposed to every kind of taxa

of a favored clss. Tales should be im

such articles and at such rates as to pro
dure the required revenue with tbe least

possible interference with the busiueaa of
the people. To lax hidi or any other
raw material Is to limit the market for the
sale of the products manufactured from
them, anj t ii at is to limit the demand for

It happened at. out three months ao,
when a twin city manufacturer t ok a
run down to Cuii-itgi) aud attended a
meeting of aiah and door manufacturers,
lusl f r the fun of thing. In the meet
inc a manufacturer from Hock Inland
made a !( ti, in which he proceeded to
wipe the tioi.r with the tbe Brm of which
the twin ci'y man present is a member.
The li n k Island member did not know
that je was assailing present company,
however, and hit iwch became very
vindictive, lie said that most of tbe
concerns in the avsnriation were reliable.
"You rim believe what they say.? he re
marked ' but there is one house In

snd gave the name nt the concern that
bad excited his wrath. When he had
finished be sat down in the seat next to
the bead of tlie offending brm. Those
who were aOUaihled with tbe Twin City
representative rnpyed the affair im
menely A member who was acquaint
ed with both hastened to introduce the
orator to the object of Ins phillipic. It
was rather utiromf rtat.e for a few
seconds The Hoi k Island man blushed,
frowned. enped. shook hand but recov

blurt out. "Well, gentlemen, I have

New York, Nov. i R. G. Dun & Co.'i
weekly review of trade says: Money
has been working closer during tho psst
week, falling to 4 per cent last Saturday,
but tben rising steadily to 9 par cent, oven
mora being paid in soms oases. It does not
appear tbat tb chang ha any other cause
than the demand from tbe interior, which
continues later this yar than usual, and on
account of great business activity b un
usually large. Tbo foreign situation has not
essentially changed. There ia scarcely any
evidence of important movement of securi
ties either way, but tba sals of Minneapolis
flour mills and northwestern elevators to
an English syndicate for $6,290,000 b a
ample of many industrial operations in pro-
si, which in the aggregate bring a vast
amount of foreign capital into the country.
Bis Inereaaa la Exports.
The exports for four week at New York
have exceeded last year' by 13 6 per cent,
but an enormou increase in cotton exports
does not there appear; the increase in im
port has I wen about 8.5 per cent for tb
month. The volume of business continues
very large, though signs of a reaction begin
to appear at some of the larger centers ol
distribution. Thus the gain of V per cent
in exchanges at New York lattt week wa
due to stock operations, and the clearings at
Boston fell below last year' gains, and at
Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago together
tho increase was but U.4 per cent, but at all
other points together it wasovsr 10 per cent
Prices are stiffening, though tho general
level has advanced scarcely a quarter of
per cent iu two weeks. In tba speculativs
markets there bss been more activity and.
except iu pork products and coffee, an ad
Vance. These change call for more money
in the movement of products. Building op
erations are also unusually active at many
citiea. n bile tbo treasury ba paid out
about $1,.tOO,000 more than has taken in
last week, tbo supply at interior markets
does not seem as satisfactory. Tho root
of tbo matter seems to be tbat expanding
legitimate business requires money which it
still absorbed in various speculations.
Liberal Speculation In Trust fttocke.
Liquidation in trust stocks continues, par
ticularly in cotton oil, which has been heav
ily sold at a severe decline.. But railroad
stocks bava been very stubbornly held, and
average in price almost exactly as they did a
week ago. Arrangement between tba Chi
cago and Northwestern and the Union Pa
cific, and a rumored aale of the Chicago and
Alton, look toward consolidations of great
systems, and in ths end a projected railway
trust of gigantic proportions, but, meanwhile
popular disfavor may lead to interruption
by congress or state legislatures. For tho
present, at all events, the visible tendency
toward consolidation encourages holders of
securities, snd the traffic in progress is large
and profitable. Speculation u breadstuff;
