The table of bank clearings we put
lish on our seventh page this mora-,
lng, ,howthat New York 1b vastly In
creasing its transactions. Two weeks
together recent'y showed clearing
there to be bebiod tboee ol the cor
responding time last year. Last week
they were 21 per cent more than the
corresponding weak a year ago. Oat
aide of New York the clearings
amounted last week to 17.4 per cent,
more than thost of the corresponding
week a year ago. Evidently the "dead
sstsoa" this year is well in advance of
ths same season a year ago, which is
an encouraging fact. The New York
increase is partly due, of coarse,
to increased speculative activi
ty, but the New York papers
aay that much of it comes
from improvement in general busi
ness. Toe Chrwiiclt bss a table
showing the rotation, the enrrent
returns bear to "those for 1884 and
earlier years. The excess of 1880 over
1884, in the aggregate of all the citier,
reaches 18 4 per cent, and over 1883
neatly 4 per cent , while the loss from
1882 is 21.4 per cent., and from 1881
1 9 per cent. Monoy, the same paper
reports, continued to increase in activ
ity during tbelsst week. At the Stock
Exchange bankers' balances aver
aged about 6 per cent. There w'ai a
little flurry in the course of last week,
and on Wedneiday 40 per cent, wss
reached, but was followed by a fall to
6 per cent. The last few weeks have
been noticeable for the concentration
of surplus reserve in a very few bank,
when out of $8,617,250 surplus report
ed by all, three banks held 18.245,500,
and two of theie $7,054,100, but there
Is nothlug alarming in this. The
reviving business a :tivitj and the enp
demand ior funds, induces the banks
to pursue a very conservative coarse.
The mercantile demand is also becom
ing more urgent, and the banks have
to be as liberal as possible with regu
lar cnsomrs it transitmt ones are de
nied. The New York Indicator says:
"If the activity in the money market
did not exist, we should think all the
reports frjrn th, Interior 'mere vapor
ing,.' But its existence demonstrates
the correctness of financial views,
which have been based upon big
crops, good business and increased
railroad earnings." The sale of com
mercial paper has been practically sus
pended; very choice and short bills re
ceivable were at 5 per cent., while 0
per cent, was almost the only rate.
The Indicator reports : "Bine, August
1st, Sterling has declined 2 cen's, and
Ihe redaction has been principally on
account of the large supply of security
bills. That is, foreign purchasers ol
American securities are paying in
sterling exchange, and the rata (alls
because we have not so msny debt, to
par abroad. If the thing kespa up
much longer we shall be getting
gold back. We shall have grain
exports to help it along soon,"
The ChronicU thinks a receipt of gold
from Earops possible, and that things
look ai if through the fill months
there might be a considerable move
ment. Oar stringency in money
caused such a pressure in bsnkon'
bills drawn against securities, that for-
e'ga exchange on Thursday came
down to tho point at which gold could
be Imported, but that paint no longer
exists. The Bink of England Is now
low In bullion and would resist ship
ments of gold to this country, and
France Is decidedly opposed to parting
with its treasure. Ths Indicator claims
that the foreign demand for Amoricin
securities is not only bulling thesork
market,' but is bringing gold imports
near. The fir.it gold shipment was
made from Paris on Thursday, and
amounted to $200,000, and more gold
la t f jllow. Gdld must corns or rates
for money here go down. Silver bull
ion had a reaction and advanced to 42 J
pence an ounce in London, making
the bullion value of the silver
dollar 72 cents and 67 thousandths.
The ClironieU his a Uble of the dally
price ol silver from Decsmber 1st last
to the present time, and says:
"Strangely enough, we Bad that silver
has been steady and Dctrly uninter
rupted ever sloce Congress met in
December, when the price was 47jd
pur ounce. The previous December
(1884) it was atout 49jd, to it only de
clined 2d during the whole ot the pre
vious twelve months; whereas during
the seven months Congreea ha been
in session it dropped full 6Jd ; and,
furthermore, it has reacted jd since
that body adjourned." Tha ChronicU
says the commercial situation seems
t j b improving, with good promise
for the fall and winter trade. Wall
street Is pre-eminently the center ot
. th, floating capital ot the coantty, and
any revival in the general busioees ot
the country is first felt there. Since
Mr. Cleveland's administration, gavs
security to capital, la June and July,
Wall street has recovered activity,
and the country quickly responded.
Also the money market! of the countt y
give decided indications of becoming
lest cautious and more enterprising,
and money is going inti more active
employment. "The truth is, our peo
ple are first getting to work producing
and consuming sgsin." The Indicator
remarks: "The improvement in bss'.'
nees is best seen in the movement ol
money in the West. The movement
is not only eulier than .usual, but
more active than for years past. The
advices from the West teem with
hopeful news concerning business."
The ,me authority says that grain ex
ports are beginning to make a g-od
showing. Exports ot breadstuffs io
creased $2,800,000 in July over those
ot last quai tor. Also that the rail
roads are not only earning more on
their o'd mileage than they did last
year, but are earning more, on their
new mileage than they did on tho old
in 1886. For the year so far (seven
months) sixty-four companies report a
gain of $5,881,783, equal to nearly 6
per cent Only eighteen, or less than
30 per cent show losses, and they are
not larga except in a few instances.
The machinery manufacturers through
out the country report a decided im
provement in business, with good
prospects for more prosperous times
om, repotting orders ahead for sev
eral months, some that their
work, are running to their full
capacity. The New York Herald
reports crops better than expected,
increased movement in product, and
merchandise, fewer busioees fsilures
the last week then for the tame time
for some year, past, and everywhere
belief in an active fall trade. It says
ot the check to the prospect ot import
ing gold: "This is due to the fact that
we have ceased exporting securities
and to a higher rate of interest In Lon
don. However, we are finding a good
market for our wheat, and Iree ex
port of that shoulcksoon start gold to
flowing in this direction."

portico of the White House to take

small party of tourists from Kentucky.
Tbey recognized him at once and
asked permission to pay their respects.
The President was willing and shook
bands with each of them as he made
bis wwy toward bis carriage. Mrs.
Cleveland and Mrs.Folsom bad already
entered the vehicle, and ai the coach
man cracked his whin and the carriage
rolled away ths people on the portico,
most ot whom were ladies, waved their
handkerchiefs and shouted a hesrty
"good bye." The party occupied a

of the Delaware and Hudson Unal

ment, during his vac, tion, a, such a
course would utterly defeat the object
and purpotes of h i trip, which are for

and commented on that the Commis

to at least the charge of being a party

to make sure that there shall never be

while it is under a Democratic admin

to have the Chief Examiner, who ex

Cmaha, Nib., Augurt 16. In 1875
there waa ineerted in tbe Nebraska
State Constitution a provision that at
the general election immediately pre
ceding the expiration ol the terna of
a Ui ited State, Senator from this State
the electors shall, bv ballot, express
their preference for eouie person for
the onice of United btstes Senator. JNo
action has been taken on th s process
up tu the present time. Senator Van
Wycr, who is a candidate for re-election,
has been asked to appeal to toe
people ior their expression ol prefer
ence under this proviso, aod he has
accordingly issued a manifea'o. This
will be the nrst instance ol a direct
vote of the people for United State,
Senator, and it is supposed that the
choice thus made will be binding ss a
matter of honor on tbe Legislature,

Mr. Foster's Addreaa for the Pris
oner Coaelnded.
Chicago, III., August 16. Tbe
closing week of the great anarchist
trial opened this morning insufferably
hot, with scarcely a b.ea'h of fresh air
in the courtroom. Every inch of
spare within tbe four walls was occu
pied bv spectators.
Mr. Foster resumed his speech this
morning by declaring that be was not
there to defend anarchy. When he
expressed that sentiment Saturday he
exnrE8eil the sentiment of bis asso
ciates. The verdict ought not to be
bared upon the statements of any
counsel. This assertion was made wi'h
apparently tbe view of undoing the ef
fect of tbe statements made by mr.
Salomon in his opening. As to Spiei
apd his utterances, Mr. l-o ter quoted
the old adug , "Ttjat a barking dog
never b:ts. Spies never concealed
his sentiment,; they were made pub
lic time and again through the press.
The man was talkative; ttiat could not
be disputed. Therj must be toooe
thing in the construction of the man's
brain which made him give utterance
to bis wild talk. That man loved noto
riety, that was all.
Mr. Foster continued to argue that
the testimony given on behalf of tbe
Stats to show that Spies was concerned
personally in a conspiracy on tbe
night of the bay market attack was im
probable, and claimed that it had
been positively ,hown that the other
defendants were near the wagon when
tbe bomb waa thrown.
The court adionrned at 1 o'clock.
r before Mr. Foster bad concluded hi.
At the afternoon session Mr. Foster
continued his argument at consider
able length. He concluded his ad
drees with an eloquent and flowery
appeal to the jury. He aaked them
not to convict an act which they
would regret during the remainder of
their lives.
Cpt, B ack said he wonld prefer
not to commence hU address till to
morrow morning, snd the court ad
journed till that lime.
