The Gold Production of 1896 Promises to
Be Large
United States Exports for the Year Both lm.
ports and Exports Larger Than in 1895.
Increase In Sugarand WOIII
The reports which continue to reach the
director of the mint from time to time sus
tain tho prediction made In the Journal of
Commerce some five weeks ago that the
gold production of the world for tho cel
endar year 1896 will exceed $220,000,000.
There are tho best of reasons at present
for believing that the amount will not fall
below $225,000,000. The four great produc
ing countries will alone afford a total of
more than $180,000,000, distributed $50,000,000
to the United States, $50,000,000 to South Af
rica, $48,000,000 to Australia and 333,000,000
to Russia. These are considered very con
servative figures, and it will be in no way
surprising if they are exceeded in the case
of any or all of these countries. Nearly
all the gold mining districts in the United
States are showing healthy gains this year
over last, and Colorado, Montana, Idaho,
Nevada and Utah will surpass their best
records In the past. Alaska is coming to
tho front as a gold producing territory,
but the production, has not attained the
magnitude which it ls likely to reach
when efficient machinery has been obtained
for tho mining districts. The production
of tho United States lor 1895 was about $47,
-000.000, and a claim of $3,000,000 more for the
current year is considered well within the
limits of conservative prediction. In view
of the reports which have already boen re
ceived. There was some incredulity at the
mint bureau over some of the reports made
by special agents for 1895, but careful in
quiry showed that these reports were based
upon facts, and that substantially every in
crease claimed over 1894 iiad been made.
The. official report of the foreign trade
of the United States for the year ending
June 30, 1M), is at hand. Bradstreets' thus
sums it up:
Tho following ls a condensation of the
grand totals of exports and imports for the
year specified;
1596. 1895.
Imports, free $369,771,9E6 $363,233 795
Imports, dutiable.... -109,938,088 868,786,170
Total imports 779,710,024 $781,869,965
Per cent imp's, free.. 47.4 49.6
Duties collected $160,534,351 $162,168,617
Exports, domestic—
Agriculture 569,871.714 553.210,026
Manufactures 225.489.593 183,593.74:1
Mining 20,412.153 18,509,81!
Forest 33,718,204 28.576.235
Fisheries 6,585,814 6,828,807
Miscellaneous 4,152,701 4,171,10t
Totals $563,200,457 $793,392,399
Exports, foreign—
Free of duty 9.450.930 7,484,148
Dutiable 9,919,521 6,661,118
From this it appears that the total in
crease in vulues of both free and dutiable
importations during the twelve! months
ended June 30 last as compared with the
preceding year amounts in round numbers
to $17,740,010, about 13 per cent, while tho
corresponding increase In the total value
of exportatlons of domestic merchandise,
and produce was $69.808,000.'a little less than
9 per cent. Notwithstanding the fact that
the total proportion of the value of infpor
tations free of duty ls nearly one-half of
aggregate importations,the value
of the some was only $6,538,000, as compared
with an increase of $41,202,000 in the value
of dutiable merchandise imported.
Among the more important increases in
values of Importations (In even millions ot
dollars) in the fiscal year 1895-96 were sugar,
free and dutiable. $13,000,000; manufactures
of wools. $15,000,000; raw wool. $8,000,000:
hides and skins, unmanufactured silks and
chemicals, drugs and dyes, each, $4,000,000;
wood and manufactures thereof. $3,000,1 '
tobacco, nuts and fruits and raw cotton,
.12,000,009 each, and crockery and pig tin,
each $1.CQ,000.
As pointed out, the total increase in value
of domestic exports during the fiscal year
just concluded was S6P.SO-4.CtSJ. or B.S per
cent, of which $44,894,000 increase was in ex
ports of manufactured products, a gain in
that line of nearly 25 per cent over the year
before, the heaviest relative gain shown in
any of the classification:.; of ihe domestic
exports. The next largest increase, in dol
lars, Is $16,631,000 in exports of agricultural
products, which is a gain of only 3 per cent
of the total value of foreign shipment of
such products over the previous year. The
increased valuation of products of the for

heavier along the foothills and in the moun

NEW YORK. Aug. 25.-The speculation
in stocks today was about as dull as on
Monday, was uninteresting and practically
meaningless in general outline, the only
noteworthy development being a decTTne to
the lowest points reached in the present
movement in the sterling exchange market.
Actual figures ruled at 4.83%@4.84% and 4.84%
(&4.84194 for long and short bills. The weak
ness revived expectations of further sub
stantial lmpport of gold from Europe and
sales of about 1,500,000 of American gold for
shipments to this country tomorrow. Fur
ther shipments are expected to be made on
Saturday. This news checked the selling
movement which was in progress at the
outset and led to slight purchases for both
accounts. The list was carried a shade
above yesterday's closing. Europe was
a moderate seller. During the forenoon
some comment waa excited by the excep
tional dullness of the railway bond market.
Business In the llnal hour increased some
what and at the expense of values. The
Gould shares appeared the objective poi tis
of attack. Sugar was also a sufferer from
tho reaction which was chiefly due to re
alizations. The closing wus heavy at gen
eral fractional lobscs as a result of today's
operations. Railway bonds were dull with
scarcely any transactions in the specula
tive issues. Prices move d irregufarl v with
a toward trend. The sales for the day
were $413,000. Silver certificates were dull
and reacted % per cent to C 6% on sales of

The Day's Transactions 01 tha Hoard of
CHICAGO, Aug. 25.—Wheat opened very
strong but was succeeded by a long spell
of comparative weakness anel gradually
declining prices. December at the start
brought from 61% to 61%, declined to 60%0
60ft In the course of an hour. The firm
ness at the start waa occasioned by th*
strength of the early cables. Every export
er who made offers from the other side yes
terday was accepted and accordingly not
only offers cabled from Chicago but from
Baltimore. New York and St. Louis were
accepted as well. Houses with European,
connections appeared to have asked regard
ing the prospects for the wheat crop of
Russia and every one agreedjti saying; that
the Russian wheat crop was poor. The
reasons for the weakness which followed
were principally connected with the talk
concerning the unsettled financial condi
tions, and perhaps to some extent by the
increasing receipts of spring wheat In the
northwest and the extreme heaviness of
< om. The number of car loads received
er Minneapolis atid Duluth were 654, com
pared*wlth 4Sx cars last week and 1063 cars
on the corresponding day of the year be
fore. This increase over last week was
considerable of a bearish factor, Tho
world's shipment to European ports last
week amounted to only 6,512.000 bushels,
as officially reported, as against private
cables of the day before to the effect that
thn total amount was about 1000 bushels
.more than that. The correct figures were
I known befori t he opening and were an ele
ment in creating tho opening strength.
Bradatreet'a report of the. world's visible
showed an increase in this country east
of the Rocky mountains of 359,000 bushels
anil a decrease in another afloat for Eu
rope of 40,000 bushels, making a net in
crease of 899,000. A year ago there was an
Increase of 562,600 bushels. Nothing, how
ever, was so potent in depressing wheat as
tho uncomfortable money situation grow
ing out of the Diamond match troubles.
The market continued depressed during
the last hour nn heavy liquidation and gen
erous short selling. Another twenty-four
1 hours of favorable weather for corn caused
: the Immensity of the prospective supplies
to overshadow everything else, the effect
of this being augmented by liberal local
receipts and the result was a decided
slump, prices going lower than ever before.
Oats were fairly active, a good business
being transacted, but prices were lower
all day. Pork made another low mark
for itself. September selling down to 5.65.
The weakness was mostly in sympathy
with corn.
