WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 2. 1893 CONDITION OF BUSINESS. Son A CJo.'i Weekly ReTlew ot Trade Surprising Strength ot New York F1n. ell Institutions-Gold la Coming from Abromd-The Balance of Trade Against Cs Being Materially Reduced by Heavy Shipment of Cereal. New York, July 29. R. 0. Dun & Ca'B Weekly Review of Trade Bays: The hardest week has left the business world still able to rejoice in the sound ness and strength disclosed. Prices of stocks were greatly depressed Tuvsday and Wednesday, closing lower than any other day since January, 1870, and the fall on Wednesday averaged over 13 per share and yet only two failures resulted, and those of brokers not espe cially important. A sharp rally fol lowed on Thursday, with buying from London by shorts, and especially sig nificant buying by small investors. No banks here or at other eastern cities, and no eastern firms of larire Impor tance liave gone down, but numerous banks fulled at the west, including some of high repute and large business. The money market became exceedingly stringent again with the depression in stocks and the drain to assist other cities has been very heavy, but through all the strain the banks of New York have passed without trouble. From (1,000,000 to l'J,000,000 in money has been sent west every day and large decrease in bank reserves is ex pected as the treasury has not been dis bursing heavily. Few commercial loans have been negotiated and at high rates. At other cities the money mar kets have been quite close, but bank failures at Milwaukee, Indianapolis and Louisville have caused less disturb ance than might have been feared. Grain robe briskly on Monday, but all speculative markets yielded a little when tight money came and the slaughter of stocks. Wheat closed bout one cent lower, though western receipts were moderate, corn is a frac tion lower aud also some hog products. Boston reports wholesale and job bing trade very conservative, but re tail trade as largo as usual. Cottons have sold well until lately and there are no accumulations, but some mills are closing to prevent over-production. Woolens are quiet, light weights being Blow at prices 5 per cent, below last year and wool Is weak with small sales. Orders for boots and shoes are small, leather and hides are quiet Philadelphia reports better feeling, though very little commercial paper is sold at 7 per cent, and banks are hoard ing money, though caring for deposi tors. In textile manufactures there is no improvi incut, and many mills are closing for want of orders. Trade at llaltimore is quiet, banks are strong but close, and commercial risks taken are narrow. Xo gain is seen at Pittsburgh, where the demand for iron is small and the majority of mills are closed, though two have re sumed, but the wage scald fjr iron and gla -s is not settled. At Cleveland trade is dull, except for groceries, and at Cincinnati orders are not improved. Chicago reports smaller receipts of most products, decrease of 'J'.! per cent in clearings, 1)4 per cent, in real estate sales and 2D por cent In eas'.bound shipments; jobbing tr.tdo fair and re tail very satisfactory, lluaks are call ing some loans, heavy demsnds for ac commodations continue at 7 per cent, but the best customers only arc sup plied and money is as tight as ever. Wheat is st the lowest point ever known and local securities are pressed for sale. At Milwaukee the failure of the three oldest banks caused intense excite ment and heavy commercial failures and large holdings of iron sydlcate pa per being the cause, and business is contracting. Jobbers at St Paul are conservative, but average crops are ex pected. Omaha reports qniet trade, except for groceries, and .Sioux City good crop prospects, but jobbing trade and pork packing curtailed. Washington, July ill. The large or ders given by New York financial houses for gold abroad to be imported into this country, are regarded at the treasury ilcHrtmcnt as a fuvorable symptom of returning conscience. Much of the gold now coming here is the samp gold that wsh exported sev eral months ago. The heavy shipment of American cereals abroad within the past two months has materially re duced the bnlunee of trade against us. In such circumstances it will be natural for the Tinted Slates to continue to re ceive gold from abroad. Gold in lurge quantities is also coming here from the West Indies This Spanish gold on reaching our shores finds its way to the assay offices and is melted up into bars, and this and the European gold soon find lodgment in the United States treasury. From present indication the gold in the treasury will soon exceed $100,000,000. It is to-day ('J7.500.000. When the (100,000,000 is passed the treasury will again resume the Issu nnce of gold certificates, which by law had to be stisended when the treasury gold was reduced below (100,000,000. The gold certificates now outstand ing aggregate (80,000,000, which Is an unusually small quantity for the treas ury to have. The department, how over, shows little or no Interest wheth er the gold is 1100,000.000 or (75,000,000, us it is the policy of Secretary Carlisle to use the gold on hand the same as he does currency, in meeting the obliga tions of the treasury. So for several months past the gold reserve has been treated as available cash. On this baais the available cash in the treasury to-day is (122,000,000. International Yacht Kace. New York, July 89.
