Argentine Wheat and the Decline of
Farm Products
The Administration and the Position of Sil
ver—Changes Noted in Prices of Prod
ucts Produced Locally
Argentina lias been a very formidable
oompetitor for the wheat trade ot Europo
in the past year. In 1894, that country
exported 57.600,000 bushels; in 1896, 37,600,000
bushels, while this year it ls estimated at
only 20,000,000. A speaker at the Midwinter
fair in San Francisco made the statement
that owing to cheap land, cheap labor,
cheap transportation and the premium on
stold, Argentine farmers growing wheat on
a large scale could lay the grain alongside
•hip at tidewater for 16 cents a bushel,
gold. A line ot railroad runs from the foot
of the Andes to the ship's side, 212 mile*
over a plain so level that there is not a
curve in Its whole length, nor a cut nor
a fill of over three feet. The descent is so
uniform, only enough steam is required to
■ ton and start and control the brakes.

Annual losses on crops In four years,
The annual production of wheat in this
country is 510,000,000 to 520,000,000 bushels 1
Year. Of this the exports amount to 133.
--000,000 to 150,000.000 bushels a year. The
average corn crop is 1,750.000.000 bushels.
The loss at 33 cents a bushel on wheat and
14 cents a bushel on corn is a very serious
Seeretar/ John G. Carlisle in a recent
letter to Mr. Patterson, a member of con
gress from Tennessee said:
"Since the beginning of this administra
tion, nearly $110,000,000 in gold has been
produced in exchange for other forms of
currency. Of this amount. $8,913,812 has
been procured in exchange for silver coin,
and $10,015,330 in exchange for silver certifi
cates. The department has never refused
to exchange silver for gold when It had
sliver that could be lawfully used for that
purpose, ana If it had so refused I am
wholly unable to see how it could be con
sidered a discrimination against silver.
Is a refusal lo pay out gold in exchange
for silver a discrimination against gold?
If not, it of course follows that a refusal
to pay out silver for gold is not a dfscrlm
inarion against silver.
"In response to your verbal inquiry con
cerning the coinage of standard sllverdol
lars during the present administration, you
are advised that it amounts to the sum ot'
$6,662,000 up lo the 15th day of this month,

NEW YORK. April 14.—A further in
crease in trading was noted today in the
slock market and there are indications of
commission house buying to a moderate
extent. Interest centered In the Indus
trials. London came lower for Americans,
but the local market opened animated and
strong. Trading was affected by the con
siderations that have recently been noted,
the seasonable weather, ease of money,
weakness in exchange, more encouraging
advices aa to the crop outlook and a belief
that no disturbing elements are likely to
occur In the near future regarding the
Cuban question. The market at the outset
was quiet, but the movement decreased
Later and the afternoon operations were
only of moderate interest. The reports
denoting the substantial position of the
sugar industry and buying of the stock
by the pool have caused considerable anx
iety on the part of the shorts, as the manip
ulators appear to be able to manipulate
the price at will. Sugar rose 1% per cent
to 123, closing with a net gain of a point.
The advancing tendency in the general
market was checked at times by profit tak
ing, but the depression was only momen
tary. Such of the railways as were active
fluctuated with narrow ranges.
In the final dealings general realizations
caused fractional recessions and Imparted
an easier tone to the closing. The ex
changes recorded slight gains as a rule.
Railway bonds were active and higher on
a wide distribution of business. The more
substantial gains were scored ihe usu
ally inactive issues. Central Washington
firsts trust receipts jumped 1% per cent
to 52 on the prospects of favorable treat
ment in the Northern Pacific reorganiza
tion. Government bonds were strong on
sales of $85,000.

firmness was Influenced some by the
higher cables, both English and continent
al, Liverpool, according to public advices,
showing %d advance. Berlin and Parts
Also showed moderate gains. There was a
falr-sixed out inspection and crop dam
age claims from Ohio which also imparted
some strength to the situation. At the
advance offerings were larger, especially
of July, there being considerable selling
by the elevator interests and exports mak
ing a disappointing showing, caused early
buyers to sell and prices receded. The
weather continues the all-important fac
tor, the warm showery conditions in the
winter wheat states having a bearish in
fluence. Another influence which aided the
decline was the sharp drop in prices at
St. Louis which was said to be due to the
change in the rules regarding the delivery
on contracts of Kansas hard wheat.
Northwestern receipts were much larger
than a year ago, and there were selling or
ders here from that section. The signal
service preuicted favorable weather for
the winner wheat belt, but not so for
the Northwest, where snow flurries and
colder weather are indicated. Advices
from parties now traveling through the
Southwest stated that the crop in Southern
Indiana and Illinois looked much better
since the late rains. The market rallied
on the good buying by room traders. The
very free selling at the advance caused tho
sharp reaction to Inside prices. When hold
ers wanted to realize they found there
were no buyers and a heavy feeling result
ed, the very limited export clearings and
the fine growing weather making buyers
cautious and longs sold. There was a little
more doing in corn. Prices kept within
'ie range. The close was steady at yester
day's price. Oats were active only at In
tervals. The feeling was easier, influenced
by free offers and sympathy with
wheat. Provisions were upheld for a
time by the demand for pork by those
who were short. That sustaining Influence
was not sufficient to bold up lard and
ribs in the latter part of the session.

ROSTON, April 14.—Business has been
confined to the sales of small lots in the
wool market here this week. The market
shows an entire lack of demand and with
this feeling prevailing prices are somewhat
fluctuating and the buyer in need of wool
has no trouble in securing what he requires
at his own figures, if they are anything
within reason. Dealers are now in hope of
improvement in the market for the new
clip and prospects of doing better after the
fall elections. Dealers express the opin
ion that the election of a Republican presi
dent will help values. California wools:
