x The Heavy Knnk Reserves.
"It is nlso shown in the increased banlc
reserves of the western institutions, which
for the first time in the history of the
ational bank system have reached ami
even exceeded the reserves of the eastern
citie. New York also now M-wcins to feel

The 4'omtnerrial Outlook Kxrellent.
Mr. II. W. Cannon, presiileut of the
Chase National lank, writes; '-From pres
ent indications the commercial outlook for
lHfr, is most excellent. The financial dis
turbances, of the past year in Kurope ap
pear to have nearly passed away, and t lie
money market in Ixmdon, Paris, and Ber
lin has assumed nearly a normal condition
once more. We hnvcharvested a bountiful
crop, not of cereals only, but of fruit, vege
tables, and in fact all the products of the
soil have !een most plentiful. Quite the
contrary heiiiKthe case in Kun.pe, we nee
able to supply our t'eihhors a toss the
water with food products at reasonable
prices, ami the balance of trade will be in
our favor for some time to come.
Deprecates Too Much Speculation.
"We may expect to receive money in re
turn for f t mm 1 product, ns vtcil a securi
ties; the money markets in the 1'nited
States will probi.bly 1M- easy mid all sorts
of business in this country uill he stim
ulated thereby. t is to le hoped that
speculation will not become tim rampant
wit h 11s. and that we will ttot put up the
prices of our products ainl securities dur
ing the next six months to an abnormal
point. We have a iroo.1 Koveruineut., a
sound currency, and this y.-ar an abundant
harvest. Our people are yearly trrowin
richer and the indications point to the year
ls!y ns one of great prosperity."
A Well llUf rilmteil Prosperity.
Mr. W. P. St. John, president of the
Mercantile National bank, writes: "The
business outlook forlsir;.' appears to be very
bright. Circumstances which, taken to
gether, are unusual, seem to warrant the
expectation of fully average T'rosperty,
more than ordinarily well distributed
throughout all sections. Conditions inthe
iron market nre usually regarded note
worthy. Of late the reports proclaim a
further demand for bar and manufactured
iron, and a shade hither prices in particu
lar lines. The New York Stock Kxchar.jre
litis 'cnitftlit on.' and Wall street antici
pates the future in a temper that is propi
tious. Kvery developing influence toward
Improvement will feel its impulse as a
stimulant to progress everywhere.
Like Crisp's House Committees.
"The make-np of the committees of the
new house of representatives is excellent
from a banker's point, of view. We are
thereby assured against tariff tinkering
for merely partisan political effect. The
merchnnt and manufacturerare uot, there
fore, to be kept depressingly anxionsall
the season. Ordinary currents of business
are not to le distnr)ed. The present lo
level of prices for all our great products,
with a Dingle exception, furnishes safety in
the basiHof expectation for the futnre.
Hence, in every prospect and anticipation
I confess myself sanguine of the business
pitnation during lWtt."

near St. lrfiuis. t n the night of Nov. SO.
His name is All ert. D. Sly and he was ar
rested by KolH-rt D. lMnkerton last week
at Is Angeles, Cnl.. with a large amount
of the stolen mo ley in his possession.
Hail a Tell-Taie Watch with Him.
The watch he had taken from the Adams
Express messenger was in his pocket. In
nddition to thest two daring crimes. Sly is
suspected of lieing the leader of the gang
that robled the street car liarns at Omaha,
Neb. in Octolet , the Metropolian street
car lwrns in F.'ansas City in the same
month and the Pacific K.. press company
on the Missot ri Pa itic railroiid, near
Omaha, Nov. 4. All these roblierics were
committed under similar circumstances,
and in each instance dynamite was used.
On the Trail of the Suspect.
As stMn as Pink ert on suspected that Sly
was mixed up iti the robliery at Western
Union Junction he set about locating him,
mid finally traced him to St. Louisa few
days before the robbery at tilendale.
l"inkerton then went to work with Harri
gan to hunt hin down. The first reliable
information tha' Hatrigan got concerning
the men was so ne days alter th.'TobbeVy
occurred, when a man who furnishes
houses on the installment plan told the
chief that he hafi lifted up a house for four
men and a womt n on Swan avenue, in the
outskirts of St Ix tuis. but that the men
and the woman hail suddenly disnpx'ared,
leaving the fun iture and everyt hing le
hind them. The man identified Sly as le
ing one of the ni"n from his picture.
t.ot f lews of the ;ienl.tle A (Talr.
Chief llarriga i made an investigation,
Vid found that I he woman in the case was
a blonde, who w is supposed to 1m- the wife
of one of the four men. and on searching
t lie house scraps of pacr which hail lieen
taken from Cue express car at CIcndale
w.-re found. The party had left the house
three days after I he ( iiendale robliery. The
Imggage wis traced to the station, and it
was found by .h checks that the owners
had gone west. The St. Louis Mlice traced
them to Omaha There they separated,
taking different ''mites for the west. Ac
curate descriptions of the men and women
were obtained and forwarded to San Fran
cisco and elsewh -re.
