THE'IiA:E8T Q ULYNEWSPAPER Off THE CITY. THE CARBINGTON PBBLISHIXG CO. OFFICE, .100 SXAXE STREET. NEW HAVEN, CONN. TUESDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 11, 1884. NO. 295 VOL. LII. $5 per Year. In these days it zs hard to know when to call anything really cheap ; the " bottom is knocked out" of prices altogether; as the phrase goes. The Afes&faven ladies have testified in a most unequivocal manner to the fact that our Cloaks are cheap any wayf whatever else may be. But really ', of all the cheap things in dry goods the cheapest we have yet seen is a line of fine French Twills that we bought last week. 7 hey are all wool colored dress goods 05-4. widch and in aesirafile shades. Unless we are very much mistaken there is nothing swfreriorto them offered anywhere in New Haven at less than 80c. We could get that price' for them, but can take less, and will do it. They are for sale at 60c. a Yard. When you come in to see them, ask also to have shown to you the magnificent Venetian Cloths at 85c that we mentioned last week ; they are the ordinary $1.50 goods. Other things you ought to see are the "Bull Bison" cloths at 55c and the Bird's Kye Matelass at 60 c. These are both 5-4 all wool goods. jf o r tailor-made df esses we have regular lines of Cloths and Tri cots, but our genuine ScoIcK Suiting are the most stylish goods for that purpose.

XWO AND A HALF PER CENT. The failure of the plan for the voluntary conversion of the English 3 per cent, consols into stocks bearing 2 1-2 per cent, is a nota ble thing. The whole amount of 3s offered for conversion was only about 21,650,000, of which nearly 12,000,000 was held by public departments, so that private holders offered rather less than 9,700,000. The failure of the scheme is ascribed by the gov ernment to the disinclination of the bankers to accept a reduction in the return on their permanent investments in consols and in the profits of temporary investments. This looks reasonable, but the bankers have a dif ferent explanation. Hitherto the extent of the market for 3s and the well understood position of that reat mass of stock has made their sale upon the instant always easy, so that reserves could be thrown into this form with the certainty of immediate conversion into - cash in case of need. The bankers feared, however, or professed to fear, that by conversion into a stock of more limited amount like the 2 1-2 per cents, their reserve would be made less easily convertible and less efficient. And their refusal to act had great influence in holding back their clients. It is stated, in fact, that the bank ers made no secret of their concerted action on the subject and that this had great influ ence on the private holders. Notwithstanding the set-back which the scheme has received, it is Btated that the government is satisfied that England can now borrow at less than 3 per cent, and that the opportunity should be used to redtice the burden of interest. It is intimated that Par liament will be asked to sanction a compul sory conversion, by the calling, "for redemp tion of 3 per cents, to such extent as can be provided for by new loans at a lower rate. This course is urged by the Times and by the Economist. On the other hand, the Sat urday Beview maintains that the govern ment may be able to borrow small amounts at per cont., but not large ones, and that the best course would be to postpone action for the present. The redemption of tho 3s is going on rapidly by the sinking fund schemes set in operation in the last few years, the rate of interest has fallen and may fall more; and eo the Saturday Review thinks that with patience, in the course of a few years, the time may come when conver sion can be effected easily and naturally. Two and a half per eent. is very small in terest, but it is possible that the. Englishmen may yet have to be satisfied with it. If the proposed change is to be mode a better time could hardly be found than the present. Tho money market is very '"easy." EDITORIAL NOTES. The idea that Cleveland is elected is re ceived with much favor in London. This is natural. , Mr. A. McMatthewson, a young lawyer of Putnam, announces himself a candidate for the assistant clerkship of the next house of representatives. The more the merrier. An importer and exporter of furs gives this interesting information: The house cat is one of the most valuable of fur bearing animals, and when they disappear from the back fences they often find their way to the furrier. It is an actual fact that in 1882 over 1,200,000 house cats were used bj the fur trade. Black, white, maltese and tortoise-shell skins are most in demand, and are made into linings. As for skunks, 350, 000 were used in this country last season. They come from Ohio and New York princi pally, and, as in pursuit of the tiger and lion, the bravest men are required. Writing to the Pall Mall Gazette, the gen eral secretary of the Young Men's Christian association of London remarks that it is not given to many men to see during their life, time a society, of whieh they are the foun ders, extending its influence and operations throughout the world. This is, however, the happy lot of Mr. George Williams, who commenced the work of the association one evening in October, 1844, just forty years ago, by convening a meeting of a few young men in a small hired room. There are now 2,500 Young Men's Christian associations scattered throughout the world, all complete and independent in themselves, yet all linked together, first into national unions, and then into one great international union, with president and secretary and central offices in Geneva. - '" ' General Joe Johnston said to a newspaper mai who asked him about the origin of the Confederate battle flag: At the battle of Manassas you northerners call It Bull Bun the stars and bars proved a failure because they were so much like the Union colors. In deed, both armies mistook their enemies for friends and vice versa. After the battle I had resolved to discard this flag, and called for each regiment to procure its State colors. This they were not able to do, and I asked the army for new designs. Among those presented one by General Beauregard was chosen, and I altered this only in making it square instead of oblong. This flag was af terward adopted by the Confederate armies. It was a Greek cross of blue on a red field, with white stars on the blue bars. This flag was designed by a Colonel Walton of Louisi ana, and presented to General Beauregard. The Philadelrmia telegraph and telephone companies are still perplexed by the problem of placing their wires underground. The city ordinance compels the change before January 1, and the city solicitor has just given an opinion that nothing in the charters of the companies can prevent its enforce ment. The chief of the electrical depart ment has been unwilling to colleet the eiM- tomary license fees from the companies,' lest this should be construed as authorizing the continuance of the system of poles and wires for another year. A committee of electri cians has been asked to aid the electrical committee of councils in devising efficient measures for relief. There are about thirty corporations and firms maintaining overhead telegraph and telephone wires. Meanwhile the Baltimore & Ohio railroad company are preparing to lay down iron pipes six inches in diameter in a number of streets to accom modate their wires. The first civil government in Alaska was inaugurated recently. One of the first duties of the new exeoutive, Governor J. H. Kin kead, was to pay a visit of inspection to the principal villages of his domain, which in all its vast territory includes less than 40,000 inhabitants, of whom but 500 or so are white men. At Killisnoo, which seems to be an Alaskan metropolis, ho found thirty whites and as many Chinamen, with a large number of Indians, making herring oil for export to Portland and San Francisco. At Juneau, the mining headquarters, he found less than 50 laborers, the gold flurry having about worked out with the quick exhaustion of the placer mines. Wrangell, as a port of entry for British Columbia, had some importance as a trading port, but this it had largely parted with. At Sitka, the seat of govern ment, the- white population comprises, some 300 or 400, mostly of mixed races. Some interesting facts are recorded as to the mortality of Ceylon, especially as regards death by violence. No fewer than thirty persons were killed during the first quarter of the year (at the rate of 120 per annum) by bites from snakes, the ..cases being those of half-clad natives sleeping in the open air. One person fell a victim to a rat bite, one to an alligator, and six to elephants, leopards and bears. In addition to these two were killed by lightning and there were fourteen cases of homicide and twenty-one of suicide. The Ceylon Observer calls attention to the terrible waste of infant life from want of proper nutriment, and estimates the probable number of infants' deaths during 1884 at 2,000 simply from mismanagement in feeding the cows and the consequent scarcity of milk. Parasitic worms appear to be extra ordinarily fatal in Ceylon, not less than 2G3 deaths having occurred during the quarter, or at the rate of 1,052 per annum. The mar riages throughout the island have been very few. Not a single marriage was reported from the North Central Province, or from the Vavuniyavilankulum district of the Northern Province. The Bulletin of New Orleans announces that the exposition buildings will be ready in time and that visitors "will not be plundered by the natives during their visit." With fifty acres under roof the directors have had to order live structures not contemplated in the original plans and two "superb" build ings have been erected by the government of Mexico. As to the other matter the Bulletin says: "The managers of the exposition have made such admirable arrangements in the interests cf the expected guests that there is no longer a doubt of providing for all who come. Furthermore, those arrangements contemplate the absolute protection against unfairness and extortion of all who avail themselves of the Exposition Bureau of In formation and Accommodation. At that bureau the visitor will find a complete tableau of all the places in the city where board or lodgings, or both, may be had. Complete details as to location, character' of -entertainment and rates- ac company each list and are guaranteed by the management in every respect. The Sunday opening question has not yet been definitely settled. The managers have decided to stop the machinery and suspend business on that day, but there they have stopped for further consideration. They are urged to admit the public to the grounds on Sunday and to open the Music Hall for "sacred concerts;" on the other hand many good people earnestly pro test against anything of the sort as a desecra tion of the Sabbath. "Whatever policy the management may adopt," remarks the Bulle tin, "one thing is certain there will bo a good deal of uncharitable criticism." OFF. If you would be wealthy, get upon a mule.

Tne Loog Credit Syatem Forced on tne Country by European Commer cial Hornet, The following interesting communication is made to us by a gentleman formerly con nected with the Mercantile agency of R. G. Bun & Co., and who is perfectly familiar withthe subject. It attributes a predomi nant influence to European commercial houses in Mexico in forcing tho long credit system on that country, and explains what the agencies are that are now rapidly work ing out a great commercial change for the benefit of this country. There seem to be strong reasons to believe these views to be correct, and if so, the complete control of the Mexican market by onr manufacturers will be sooner or later assured. " To the Editor of the Journal and Couries: I wish to say one thing in the Courier in regard to the export trade to Mexico, which i3 coming to have increased importance to our manufactures. It concerns a matter of which there seems to be much general igno rance, but at the same time a good deal of misrepresentation not basea on ignorance or the export trade, but growing out of the in terest of a portion of the merehantile com munity to keep the actual facts in the dark. I refer to the matter of long credits as an in evitable obstacle in our 'seaport trade, more especially with Mexico, to which country only tho following facts apply so far as I know. Having investigated this matter thoroughly and with unusually good facili ties so far as Mexico is concerned, I am pre pared to show unquestionably that the exis tence of a long credit system in Mexico is not voluntary on the part of Mexican merchants who purchase of the importing houses. The habits of inquiring into this subject have rather tended toward looking upon the long credit business as something traditional and deep rooted, and therefore unavoidable. And this is the mistake under which this unmitigated evil has often been regarded from a business point of view. The fact is, that this long credit business has heretofore been forced by foreign importing houses upon the Mexican trade. These concerns are branch . establishments of parent houses in the mother country. They are nearly all Germans, having large capital at home and in a country where interest is very low, and having the advantage also of a subsidized ocean service between Europe and Mexico, and consequently very cheap freight. These German importers in Mexico much prefer to sell their goods to Mexican dealers on a twelve monthB' credit at enormous profits to cover this credit,there to sell on short timo and less profit. They do not want the money to use, they only care to know that it is safe and that they are getting 30, 40, or 50 per eent. for it. The importer is established in the country, has made himself acquainted with the means and business of every cus tomer he sells, and by keeping the customer in his debt to to some extent he has hereto fore managed to hold a strong contract over his trade. Bankruptcy is not a common af fair in Spanish countries, and in Mexico with all its official robbery there exists a great deal of the punctilio and a genuine sense of personal honor in business dealings. The dealers of the country are largely Mexicans and Spaniards, and they have long been held in the grip of this strong combination of the German importing houses, until the recent building of American railroads opened new chonnels of trade and transportation. The railroads, in fact, dealt a terrible blow to the power of this commercial ring. It is by no means crushed, but the prestige of com mercial power in the hands of Europeans in Mexico is utterly destroyed. Less than a year ago, the Mexican dealers at some interior points began to make pur chases in metal goods, machinery, plows, etc., of our western houses, and they soon realized how they had for years been re morsely swindled in charges, commissions, and profits by the German importers in the city of Mexico. They turned this custom in some lines, as I have said, into the new channels of American trade and cut off deal7 ings with these importing and commission concerns. The result is significant-enough, and it is now teaching more simple lessons of business truth to these Mexicans. They got their goods cheaper, but whether the con sumer got them cheaper I don't know. There is not the least doubt of the. ability to pay cash of a larger part of the Mexican trade. Tho fact is also true in Mexico that the .petty trade has no need to extend long cred its "to the population. In the mines the laborers are paid every Saturday In the agricultural sections, where almost every great hacienda has attached to it a country store where double profits are made out of tho laborers' wages, the wealthy farmer baron with two crops a year is not in a sit uation to need much credit except it be in an uncommonly bad season. Another reason that enables Mexican mer chants to go a long way in repudiating long credit dealings is, that since the railroads have connected the interior cities and large towns fnnds are transported as easily, safely and rapidly as between points in the United States "west of the Mississippi river. The armed convbys that used to ac company the "special mule trains," ou which the trade of the country two years ago de pended for transportation of mor.ey two or three times a year, are now. a thing of the past, and consequently domestic exchange is much less and the rate consequently growing less. It is not for the interest of a - system of business done through commission houses in New York, New Orleans, and the City of Mexico, to explain these facts publicly or al low them privately; nevertheless they are the facts. Our export trade heretofore has almost entirely depended on the system of ordering goods through commission houses. The building of the American railroads in Mexico and their connection with the great south western system of the United States is not merely a direct blow to European importa tion in Mexico, but the effect upon the mercantile methods in this country which have so largely profited by exorbitant charges at the expense of the Mexican dealers is to cause a gradual but certain abandonment of a system that has been viciously abused and is fast coming to be antiquated in use. Mexico is making rapid progress. I doubt if there be any people on the face of the globe who are so fast emerging out of the hard ruts of superstitious policies in govern ment, religion, or trade. SIgnor Brlgnoll'i Vanity. From the Philadelphia Pre3S. "Brignoli was the vainest man I ever knew," said a veteran stage manager, who has known all the brightest stars of the op eratic firmament for a quarter of a century. "His last appearance in this city occurred, I believe, in 1880, at the Academy of Music, and he then sang only once Edgardo to the Lucia of Mile. Valleria. He was at the height of his glory when the Academy opened in. 1856, and he received not less than $1,000 a month for his services, which were highly prized by managers, because Brignoli was the idol of fashionable society. Young girls adored him and even matrons looked upon him with soft-eyed wonder and thought it no weakness to send flowers to his rooms. He was, however, the most selfish of men and never committed any excesses. He permitted ladies to admire him, but his devotion to the proudest and most beautiful of them never took him out of doors on a wet night to the peril of his voice. His own person was more in his thoughts than the caresses of a woman. His inordinate vanity taught him to treat the whole sex as his natural subjects and not to make particular victims of any of its mem bers. He would probably have found many had he looked for them." Brignoli spent an hour in chancine his costume and two hours in making a toilet. Many a prima donna has had to wait for his hair to be arranged. He never permitted a barber's hand to touch his head, but invariably dressed his curling locks nimselX. l roi. nanii, wuu coma w United States with him in 1855, says: "Brig noli could not act, and came out of the most impassiohate scenes in opera with a placid face and unruffled laces. I remember on one occasion Gazzaniga,who was very passionate, threw her arms around him in a scene when it was the stage business to do so with such vehemence as to disarrange his hair. He flew into a passion and ended by stamping off the stage." " The mother of the Rev. Dr. Burton, of Hartford, died at Middletown on Saturday.
