Foreign Interest in (he Cotints-y's
The Return of Prosperity Felt to Be
The Grip of the Eastern Heat Trust -Further
Shipment** of European Oranges
Partially Stopped
The large banking houso of Henry
CleWB A Co.. of New York, in A recent
article contributed to the Weekly Finan
cial Review touching investments and
commerce, lias much to say that is cheer
ing. It is indeed refreshing to hear the
reports of prosperity that, admitted upon
all sides, is breaking upon the country.
In part Messrs. Clews ,fc Co. say:
The foreign interest in our investments
is steadily assuming increased import
ance. Somewhat unexpectedly Germany
has appeared among the. buyers of the
better class of storks, and during the
week lome. quite important purchases on
Berlin account havo been made. This
new feature can hardly ba viewed as a
merely temporary spurt. It has been tho
result of previous inquiry ami appears to
be the outcome of a purpose on the part
of German investment houses to return
as last in a tentative way to their former
cncouiagement to tlio employment of
capital in the United States. The great
fall in the prices of our securities pending
the depression of tho last two years has
afforded an exceptionally favorable oppor
tunity for buying; and there can be no
doubt that the important endorsement of
American credit by tho Rothschilds, in
the pending syndicate operations, has
had a material influence among German
investors in strengthening confidence in
our future. Witli characteristic caution
they have waited for facts confirmatory of
this recovery of confidence, and have
found such evidence in the rise in prices
of several of our leading staples, which
they construe a.- satisfactory proof of the
beginning ol' a return of business. This
change of feeling at Berlin lias been tho
subject of inquiry by cable and letters
by foreign bankers here; and their replies
generally confirm the view above ex
It is reasonable to suppose that this
German movement has also been encour
aged by the increased interest in our se
curities shown by London, which still
continues co follow tiie recovery in prices
here without any attempt at realizing. It
is not easy to overestimate the real sig
nificance of til is return of London and
Berlin to American investments, nor is
the cliango a matter of wonder. In
neither country is there in process any
important internal development calling
for new capital, and as to investment in
the colonies and in the raw populations
to which such enormous sums have been
unproductively loaned within the last
twenty years, they must have had exper
ience enough of that kind. Outside their
own territorial limits, these two nations,
with their immense annual savings, can
find nowhere the safety and solidity of
investment tbat is afforded by the Ullitd
States. Public opinion here lias turned
in favor id a freer commercial policy;
wo have reaci.cd a point of ability for
economical production which in many de
partments surpasses their own industries;
we are b?nt upon a sound reconstruction
of our currency system, and When the sil
ver question has been moved out of the
path ot confidence, we may count upon
ten years of prosperity Ultequaied in our
history. The men who control the course
of investment in Great. Britain and Ger
many are not ignorant of this outlook,
and the probability is that • from this
time forward they "will err not on the
side of distrust of this country, but from
willingness to lend tbat will tempt us
into undue borrowing.
The restoration of wages, which Is grad
dually going on, is sn evidence of not
only an improvement in business, but
carries with it the faith of employers that
tiie change is of a substantial and per
manent character. Such testimony comes
from many mercantile interests, especially
cotton and woolen factories. I can cite
no better corroborative instance than
that of the Washington mills, which dar
ing the depression about a year ago
Stopped their works, which comprised
machinery a mile in length. These works
are now running night and day to keep
up with the orders for the goods they
manufacture. It is well to note in this
connection that tlio goods of this mam
moth concern are of tho finest quality of
woolen fabrics made in this country,
showing that the present demand repre
sents a return to moreextraavagnt outlays
from a quarter that lias been exercising
rigid economy for a prolonged period.
There are a larger number of buyers of
goods now in Now York than ever known
beforo in any previous month of April.
Every section of the country seems to bo
proportionately represented, and the buy
ing is on quite an increased scale over
what lias been witnessed for many
months past. This is the reason why the
jobbers in dry goods, hardware, groceries
and in all other lines of trade feel so
much more jubilant than they have done
for over a year. People In trade will soon
begin to realize as oi old that success be
gets success. It takes a return of pros
perity, however, to bring it about, which
is now generally felt to be forthcoming
<r -tr it
Whether the "beef famine" in the
east is tho result of a scarcity of cuttle or
whether it is the effect of a squeezing
process of the Chicago combination, or
again, whether it is the result of the two
The Herald is not prepared to say. A
late dispatch, however, says that
"there is a very good prospect that the
■grip of the meat trust will bo broken with
in the next fow days by the Cleveland ad
ministration. Inside advices received
lroni the authorities at Washington arc
aljout to remove the embargo on Cana
dian cattle, which lias been in operation
for several years past."
■ft ft ft
Tho situation in tho orange trade is
practically unchanged. About all the
navels are shipped; next week, it is
thought, will see this variety ol fruit
cleaned up. The demand for fancy seed
lings is very good, especially in the cast
Our shipments to thd Atlantic coast this
season have had their effects aud those
effects are, happily for tlio homo grower,
being felt witli force. The poorer grades
of Messina stock are now being disposed
of through New York auctioneers at an
average of about 90 cents per box. Very
many of the eastern speculators are badly
left, and California oranges are making
a lecord wdiich will be of great benefit to
Southern California not only for the next
season, hut for all time. The invasion ot
the Atlantic coast markets by California
oranges was hardly anticipated by tlio
handlers of foreign stock. The situation
today is that most of the importers have
withdrawn their letters of credit by
Which the business is conducted and fur
ther shipments will bo at the risk of tbe
people at the other end. Consequently no
new consignments are coining forward.
It is only a qucstoin of time it is thought
when the lemon growers of Southern Cal
ifornia will be compelled to resort to tho
same measures as those adopted hy tbe
orange growers, in order to effect a wider
distribution of their product.
