FUTURS ? THB i^.-t two MONTHS SHOW RS LIEF FROM CONGESTION. [tiY mannara to the trihink.] Washington, May M, -That usually trustworthy t Ineas barometer, the National Banksystem, faila to r.-i "il the presence or approach of the next busl 11.-s boom which, tin- Democratic hypnotists would have the country believe, has appeared. Report? ?if the condition of the National banks In all the large cities In the country on May 7, except thus?., of the Pacific Stabs, are In the hands of the Con? troller of the Currency. A compilation of these re porta from twenty cities shows only about 3V? per cent gain In loans and discounts ?is compared with ! one year ago The K'at.s and discounts of the . banks ..f th.- country are considere-1 an Invaluable ' Index to the business condition. If they are heavy II Is consider d a sign of business activity. If they are light ihe revers.? Is considered. That this view ! is a correct one is shown by the fact that, while the loans and discounts of ttie National banks of ! the country Increase with the growth of popula? tion and business at the rate of about 7 per cent a j year, they fell off enormously In the yesrs l^s and UM The returns from the bank? in New-Tork, P.os- | ton. Philadelphia, Chicago, Pittsburg, Cincinnati.' Cleveland, St. Louis. St. Paul. Minneapolis, Mil? waukee. Detroit, Omaha. Kansas city. New-Or leans. Raltimorc, Brooklyn, Washington, Albany and Louisville sie m hand, and a compilation of ' their returns gives ? pretty accurate view of busl | aesa conditions everywhere, except in th.- extrem.' West Til-- i. suit is not as cheering as the talk | of business activity wt ni i seem to indicate For these twenty .-?ties the loans and discounts of the National banks are reported at BMSSS),<W0, against ??l7,i?rt,<*?) one y.ar ano. JiMt?,.Mi,auO two years ago and SMMtMM thru years SgO. To be sure the Bgures for May. ISO."., are gM,00>),000 more than those for May, ISM, but this Is still $31, SghSM less than in May. ISM, while the population of the country has increased nearly 10 per cent in the mean time. The loans and discounts of the National bank; of the country as a whole have Increased from 5 tc 16 per cent a year during the last twenty years, the only years In Which they hatS failed to make an Increase being MM and 11*3. The average Increase from natural growth of population and business Is about 7 per cent a year, while the growth In the last year was but 3:2 per cent in the twenty cities named, the aggre? gate being still I per cent below that of three years ago. There are some favorable features one-half of the Increase h9s been within the last two month?. The report of March 5 showed in the twenty cities in question a total of SttS,000,009 of loans and discounts, so that the Increase of the two months betwi two reports was culte gratifying. It is to be noted ?h ' m this r.'.atlon there was a marked increase in the money circulation of the country In the months of March and April of the present year. There was, according to the reports of the Treasury, an Increase of more than MlSMXSM in March and over $15,0U/.i.i0O In April. The amount of money In circular reported by the Treasury March 1 ?as 11,074,?3l,i57, and on May 1 $1.590,434,151. Another somewhat favorable sign in the returns now coming in from the National banks Is an Indica? tion that the "congestion" of money at the busi? ness c?ntres is somewhat relieved. It is assumed that when th ? reports of the banks show large amounts on hand as deposita they are unfavorable as indicating a lack ?f activity In business. The report? from the twenty .-Itlea in question .-?how thst the deposits are $797,000,000, against SW.000.000 one year ago. which may be assumed to indi-ate a healthful reduction of the "congestion" and a sDw but perceptible Improvement, though far from the condition of prosperity, which the reports from th>?se same bank? and eitle.--, showed before the election of Id? plunged the country Into business doubt and financial distress. MORTALITY OF THH L1VTII CONGRESS? ELECT. Washington, May M.- The death of Representa? tive Cogswell, of Massachusetts, last week, sug? gests that the record of deaths and changes in the list of Representatives-?-le. t to the I.IVth Con? gress is likely to exceed that Of tie LI1M Con? gress, which far surpassed that of any previous Congress. Last November Myron R, Wright, a member of the Lllld Congress from the XVth District of Pennsylvania, died within a week after his elec? tion to the LIVlh. Shortly afterward A. J.

That m< I malting radical changes in the laws governing the expenditure of public moneys will be lecomm? : by the committee Is freely admitted by the Indi? vidual member?.

The Governor's salary and all other exorbitant salaries will be reduced from 26 to '& 1-3 per cent, and State officials will be required 10 be at their offices a given number of hours a day and personally attend to the business of the State In? stead of trusting the wnrk to underpaid clerks. The salaries of Adjutatit-Oeneral Htryker and Quar lersaaslei Donnelly would i? increased for the ask Ing, but these officiais declars they nr.- satisfied with II.W) per annum.
