Harden at Close.
New York, March jo.-Saturday's fa
vorable bank statement and the better tone
for Americans in London were disregard
ed at the opening of today's stock market,
a majority of the leading issues showing.
A special selling movement was started
again in Union and Southern Pacifies, the
latter exhibating considerable weakness.
Practically the entire list were lower and
there was further evidence of forces of
The continued absence of public Inter
est, the increasing intensity of the South
ern Pacifie controversy and various ru
mors ranging from threatened labor trou
bles to 4ears of a money stringency were
the chief causes for the unsettled state of
the market. Southern Pacific was sold
down a to 58, the lowest of the movement.
St. Paul, New York Central, Pennsylvania
Reading, Union Pacific, Amalgamated
Copper and Tennessee Coal declining i(r
S!3 below Saturday's close.
.Many other less prominent stocks made
promlinent declines. Supporting orders
checked the decline and realties extended
to a point or more in Amalgamated, New
York Central, Pennsylvania and Canadian
Pacific and a in Southern Pacific.
The market became intensely dull at the
rally. The early selling was attributed to
calls for additional margins.
Bonds were easier at noon.
Buying was encouraged by the absence
of fresh selling at the higher level of
prices. The inquiry, wl.ile small, carried
St. Pattl, Pennsylvania, Union Pacific,
Amalgamated and a few others a fraction
above last week's close. Southern Pa
cific fell hack to 59 later, anI the market
eased off.
Prices reacted slowly but the decline
klid not become precipitate until New
York Central broke to joS ; other stocks
fell away rapidly then, Southern Pacific
touching the lowest. The decline from the
higher level ranged well over a point in
many instances. Trade slackened toward
a p. m., but the market did not harden.
The apathy of the demand on rallies
offered no encouragement to the bulls and
active selling was resumed, carrying prices
to the lowest of the day. New York Cen
tral touched s3o; St. Paul lost 'I and
many active stocks extended their previous
fractional loss to a point or more. Ana
conda lost 8. The tightening of the loan
money aggravated the weakness. Cover

Stripped by time of the picturesque at
tributes that Longfellow sung in sounding
nunbers, divested of his blanket and hair
by Jones. who does not pay the freight,
the American Indian is now to be sub
jected to the indignity of haviing his name
clipped. Ity order of the secretary of the
interior Painted D)og will become Claude
Wildairs and tie unhandsome Man.
Afraid-of-Ilis-Face will aftertimue be plain
John Potts. The department seeks justili
cation for this barbarous assault on the
picturesque nomenclature of the red man
in the explanation that it is not possible
to keep the Indian individual identified.
Thus does the utilitarian tendency of
the age rob us of our romance. But the
chhnge that has been ordered should not
be allowed to go on without protest, even
though the protest be all in vain,
We who have inherited the land of Ilia
watha, whose ears have been tickled by
the song of the falls to which the maiden
Minnehaha gave her name and confided
the perpetuation of her fame, feel that
the iconoclasts of the Indian department
are striking a blow at our traditions. We
have earned the right to stand for the
Indian and his name. On occasion we
have found it necessary to chastise him,
but on the other hand we have rejoiced
his soul with the firewater of the white
man. The memory of him, redolent of
evil smells, gaudy blankets and a tendency
to pilfer, is sweetened only by the knowl
edge that he was the founder of the for
tune of our forbears In that his require
tnents were as few as his pelts were
many. And it is a fact beyond question
that the red man who bore the name
"Skin-the-Beaver" was more readily
skinned of his skins than he would have
been had he been known as John Smith.

Washington, March 3o.-Recent press
dispatches from the City of Mexico indi
cate that the republic south of the Rio
(;rande is fully alive to the advantagesc
that will result to it from tile construction
of the Panama canal. According to these
reports P'resident Diaz is alrtady contem
plating the establishment of a steamship
line to run front Vera Cruz, by way of
Progrcso. llavana and Port l.imon, to
Colon. The present project does not con
template a through Mexican line to the
Pacific, but those best acquainted with the
efforts that Mexico is mnaking to develop
trade with the Central and South Ameri
can republics have little doubt that such
through lines will follow, or that a large
trade to lie carried in tramp steamers will
be built up. It may even be questioned
whether :Mexico, by reason of its more
favorable geogralphical location, will not
beneit iby the canal more, iut propotti.n to
its lopiulation andI wealth, than will the
nilted States. It is doulbti ul if Aimerica
hu.sinces men generally iappreciate the
great inldustrial ldeveloiipment that is goinig
onl in M'xico and th t the extent f the elfot
which the .Mlcxican governmenit is miaking
to build upl an export trade, lpCecially with
the tile Lati eitrican coulntries to the southtt
of that repullic. A goverlnment cllttller
cial con.mnission is now in South \Ameirica
its the interests of this 1Mexican export
trade, and a list of the sample articles
takent by this commtission, which was sent
to the state departniint in Octuobecr by
Coinsul Canada at Vera Cruz, contains a
list of articles that is remarkalle for its
range and variety. The list, as sent by
the rconsul, is as follows:
Sacks, binding twine, cordage, matting,
etc., made front henequen fiber; silk, cot
ton and linen rcbozos front Leou, State of
(;uanajuato; silk hand-made, rebozos, front
the town of of Santa Maria, State of San
I.uis Potosi, said to lte the finest in the
country; hosiery anid underwear of cotton
flannel from Mexico City, Celaya, etc.;
also sewing thread put up to resemble the
product of the Scotch mills; colored cot
ton braid for shoe tags and similar pur
poses, manufactured in Mexico City. The
array of cotton goods is really remark
able. All the chief factories at Puebla.
Mexico City, Orizabo, etc., contrilbute, and
the samples sent by each are substantially
the same, though, in general ,each of the
factories is also represented by a given
specialty. The goods include mantas,
bleached and unbleached; drills, damasks
(alemaniscos) for tablecloths, etc. ; per
cales and prints in every style, some of the
patterns being very tasteful: dress goods,
with silk finish; dress goods, with velvet
finish; men's suitings, almost undistin
guishable from woollen goods; muslins,
checks, twils, bombazines, organdies,
vichy cloth, cotton flannel; also cotton
handkerchiefs, towels, yarns, etc. There
are further sent erackers and Italian
pastes, cigars and clgarrettes, wollen suit
nlgs and other woollen goods, silk rebo
zos, silk thread, etc.; an exquisite variety
of drawn work from Aguas Calientes;
shoes manufactured in Mexico City, Leon
and Saltillo; charro hats; steel rails from
the newly started steel foundry of Mon
terey; whisky and other spirits; cotton
hosiery from Guadalajara Jalisco; all
kinds of soap and perfumes from Guada.
lajara, and beer from the brewery of
It is rather surprising to find steel
rail among the articles that Mexico is
preparing to export, and soaps and per
fumeries have not heretofore been looked
upon as articles of Mexican production.
It is in cotton goods of all kindls that
the Mexican competition bid.i fair to be
the most formidable. There are a large
number of cotton factories throughout the
republic, many of them operated by water
power. In larger and more modern es
tablishments the machinery is of the lat
est pattern and though the output does
not compare in quality or quantity with
that turned out in similar establishments
in the United States andl England, the
labor cost is such a small item, in com-.
parison with American and English wares,
that the goods can be sold at low prices
and yet afford a fair profit to the owners
of the plants. In Latin-American cot
ton trade the Mexicans have an advan
tage in the fact that the same lines of
goods that are manufactured for home
consumption are just what are wanted
for the export trade. It is not impossi.
ble, if the Mexicans are successful in de
veloping the cotton manufacturing indus
try, as they now give promise of being,
that the far-seeing men who dominate
the republkc will begin to look through
the Panama canal and across the Pa
cific to the markets of the Orient as well
as to those of Central and South Ameri
ca. In the Latin-American trade the
Mexicans have the great advantage of a
common language and a common race
origin with their customers. They under
stand dealing with them and understand
their wants. Thus far the Mexican ex.
ports to the other Latin-American coun
tries, including Cuba, have amounted tc
only a few million dollars per year, but,
if the efforts of the commercial commis
sion are successful and if the Panamre
canal is constructed, it is probable that
the figures will increase rapidly. A fac
tor that may be important in developing
Mexican trade with the nearer Central
American republics may be the proposed
inter-continental railway. There are few
articles of heavy freight that could be
