Operations Last Week Restricted by
the Approach of the Easter
Solid Bottom Evidenced by Re
sistance to Free Fling of
the Bears.
A Probable Revival of the Demand for
American Securities-Favorable Con
ditlon of European MIarkets.
NEw Yons, April 20.--[Special.]-The
last circular issued by the banking house of
Henry Clews & Co., 11, 13 and 15 Broad
street and 35 Wall street, says: The ap
proach of the Easter holidays has tended to
restrict operations during the week both
here and in London. So also has the un
certainty respecting Richmond Terminal
affairs. As soon as these hindrances are
out of the way we look for an active and
improving market; for both natural and
speculative forces are arranging themselves
towards just such a course.
The market has been subjected to a fair
test of its strength during the last few
weeks of reaction, the "bears" having had
a free fling at it and the oatsiae public
having almost forsaken it; and yet it has
throughout showed a force of resistance
which demonstrates that it has a solid
bottom. This strength is the more re
markable considering the very large
amount of securities that has been stead
ily flowing in upon us from Europe,
amounting to probably considerably over
$100,000,000 in value, within the last twelve
months; and also considering the disap
pointment of the common expectation that
our large crop would bring us correspond
ingly large imports of gold. The forces
that have been employed to break the mar
ket have manifestly exhausted their vitality,
and affairs have reached a position in
which a recovery in prices seems to be
naturally in order.
The defeat of free coinage of silver and
the probability that in the future silver will
either be protected under an international
compact, or will be rendered innocuous by
reducing or stopping its coinage in the ab
sence of such an agreement, is becoming
more and more regarded as of the first
importance as a factor in the future value
of investments. It saves the country from
the worst form of bad faith that can aflliot
the credit of a nation, and demonstrates to
the world that though our political institu
tions may admit of temporary orazes of
popular opinion, vet we can always depend
safely upon the sober second thought
of our people. There can be no doubt
that, of the large amount of our
securities returned from Europe, a
very considerable part was sent as the re
sult of apprehension that they might be
come payable in depreciated silver and
from a fear that the prosperity of the
United States might be seriously retarded
by the threatened insane policy of uncon
ditional free coinage. Now that Europe
oees a reasonable assurance that this dan
ger has been averted, it is reasonable to ex
pect a return of the demand for our invest
ments, which has been withheld for twelve
or eighteen months. Sine the Baring com
motion the creation of home enterprises in
Great Britain and Germany has alihost
ceased, and it is therefore to be expected
that in both countries there will be a dis
position to put the current earnings of the
people into the issues of other countries.
Already such a tendency is very apparent in
the case of England in her recent steady
purchases of stocks and bonds at this
We are now through with the usual trans
fers of cash for effecting the April settle
ments, and the money market has settled
into a condition of ease that is not likely
to be disturbed until next August. Also,
there are reasons for supposing that the
ease may continue well into or through the
fall months; for, at all the financial cen
ters of the country, the accumulation of
money in the banks is unusually large,
while the coinage of silver keeps up a con
stantly increasing inflation of the currenoy,
and the lowness of prices reduces the re
quirements for money. At the same time,
the railroad interest is getting into a more
consolidated and harmonious condition, its
weak spots are being repaired-though in
some cases with "untempered mortar"
and its revenues are steadily inc easing.
It is circumstances such as these that en
courage the speculative spirit and
stimulate the buying of securities
for the temporary employment of
idle funds; and we look for the effects of
these factors from this time forward
through the summer months, in a rise of
prices in good securities generally. It
would seem likely that the condition of
the European money markets may also
foster a renewal of speculation. The
amount of aseoie in the six great national
banks averages eight per cent above the
amount held a year ago, and the rate for
money in the open market at London is
one to one and one-fourth per cent, at Ber
lin and Paris one and one-half per cent,
and at Frankfort one and three-fourths per
cent. These facts forecast some sort of
effort to find employment for money, even
thounh it be nothing more than "swapping
In view of the forementioneS considera
tions, we regard the present situation as
favorable to the buying of good active
When Is a Contract by Correspondence
As a first requisite to the forming of a
valid contract, there must be a meeting of
minds of the parties thereto. An offer can
be revoked before its acceptance, but after
the acceptance the offer becomes a promise.
The time of acceptance of the offer is the
moment of the meetingof minds. It is not
a difficult thing to determine this rnomenlt
in the ease of contracts made in the pres
ence of both parties, but the question be
coimes difficult and very important when
the offer and acceptance are made by let
ter, teievram, measenger, or otherwise.
At what moment is the contract
consummated? Is it the moment of the
posting of the answer, or the receipt of the
ame? l s it the moment the message ii
started on its way or the moment it reaches
and is thus communicated to the offerer?
In general a communication of an aceopt
anes is necessary to a forming of the con
tract. Is this essential requisite complied
with when the party whIoIn the offer Is
made does all he can do to deliver his ao
ceptance (whether it ever reaches its doe
Iination or not) or must the acceptance
have reached its destination before it cin
have the effect of binding the parties?
It is now decided that the seceptonce is
made when the acceptor has done all that
he can to communicate his intention. The
moment then of dispatch of acceptance
is the moment the contract has its begin
nine, and once having dispatched the ac
ceptance it is irrevocable. It is understood
that one nmaking an otffr by letter is mak
ing that oiler continuously darinr every
instanoe of the time tlhe letter is traveling,
so that if the letter is delayed irn transit,
and on its receipt a letter is at ounce posted
accepting the offer, the contraot is com
plete, even though in the meantime the
party offering may have sold the goods
whish were the basis of the offer. Sup
pose the letter of acceptance be lost and
does not reach the party offering. Is there
a contract? 'fie loaisal result of the posi
tion that the contract is made when the
acceptance is posted leads us to infer that
the quostion demrands an allirmativo ena
swer. and such is the law. The settled rule
in our courts is that the time o manliunt the
acceptance is the tiue the contract is cran
lits, and that the subseuient fate of the

letter is immaterial. This is so on the
theory that the postofceis the agent of the
person who makes an offer by post, and the
delivery of the letter to the post is the de
livery to the agent of the person making
the offer.
Suppose that a letter revoking the pro
posal is mailed before the acceptance is
mailed, this does not affect the result unless
the revocation is received before the accept
ance is mailed. One in makinu a propesal
may state it as a condition to the making
of the contract that the noties of the ac

Remarkable Experience
of John Turk, a Pio
neer of Helena.
89 Doses Taken at Once Did
Not Kill, but Succeeded
in Curing Him.
John Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 39
doses of a so-called "Ban Francisco Quack's
Medicine," at once, and was not killed,
as promised by rival dootors. In Septem
her, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart,
visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co.,
Liebig World Dispensary, San Francisco
and Butte City, who had offices for two
weeks at the Merchants Hotel, Helena.
Mr. Turk had suffered for years with
Rheumatism, Impurity ef Blood and effects
of mercurial Malivation. He had four of
the best physicians in Montana attend him,
and they failed to relieve him. Dr. Stod
dart examined him, sent his prescriptions
to Liebig Dispensary, San Francisco, to be
prepared. After Dr. Stoddart left, Mr.
Tark met the local doctors and told them
what he had done. They laughed at him,
and said "that San Francisco quack would
kill him." He was so frightened that when
the medicine from San Francisco came he
pout the bottle upon a shelf at his house,
707 Park street, Helena, and it stood neg
leoted until December (nearly three
months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and
night, had not slept half an hour at a time
in years. Being in great agony late in
December, at midnight, his aye caught
sight of the so-called "Quack's?" medi
TANA.) He, in desperation decided to kill
himself with the "Quack's" medicine, as
he was told by former attending doctors it
would kill him, so he swallowed half a
month's medicine at'once--19 doses-and
fell asleep, sleet until noon next day, and
never has had a pain or ache since.
The above reads like docion, but truth is
stranger, and to prove that the above Is
true, write to John Turk, Cascade, Mon
tans, or call on Mrs. E. Verley, or Mrs. A.
