Los Angeles, June 25, 1897.
The real estate transactions as recorded
yesterday were unusually light There
were only eight mortgages, aggregating
$6,100, and thirty-three transfers, aggre
gating $49,041.52, of which $40,000 was the
consideration for sixty acres of land' sold
by F. W. Samuelson to the Hollywood
Cemetery Association for cemetery pur
poses. The new place of Interment Is lo
cated about 2% miles west of the city limits,
along the line of the Santa Monica elec
tric railroad, an excellent site for ocean
view and Bait breeses, tempered by warm
air. The soil of the neighborhood Is spec
ially adapted for the planting of early veg
etables and citrus fruit, especially lemons,
and is laregly cultivated for those pur
The new cemetery company expects to
obtain a good patronage "If this city
grows as rapidly during the next ten.years
as ln the past seven."

That the supply of vegetables influences
the price of breadstuffs Is a somewhat
novel proposition, and Is handled by a
writer In a recent Issue of Beerbohm's
List ln an article from whlcJi the follow
ing is condensed:
In Beerbohm's List of recent date a
writer calls attention to the great Influence
upon the sales of flour and breadstuffs ex
erted by the plentlfulness or scarcity of
vegetables. We make short extracts from
the article ln question, as follows: "Thie.
relation existing between the above food
products Is very mush. Ignored by statis
ticians, many of them compiling series of
figures which deal solely and only with the,
probable supply. The possible demand Is
dealt with from the ordinary figures usual
ly associated with them. Very little al
lowance Is made as a set-off as to a large,
medium or small supply of vegetables.
One Is Inclined to think that, It the latter
subject received proper attention, which It
undoubtedly should receive, many misap
prehensions as to comparative statements,
as apply to supply and demand, would
never have occurred. The demand for veg
etables of all kinds has vastly Increased
in the United Kingdom during the past
twenty-five years. This has been brought
about principally by the declining prices
of all oereal products, having caused many
agriculturists to devote more of the land
to the production of potatoes and other
vegetables. The public finding that a reg
ular supply of same could b» depended
upon and| also that the prices' were on a
much lower basis than had previously ex
isted, naturally consumed' more, a great
Inducement to do so being further given
by the tendered,advice of nearly all medi
cal men, advising a plentiful use of veget
ables of all kinds. Cheap vegetables en
courage a large consumption. Statisticians
would wish us to believe that cheap bread
also encouraged a large consumption. Ab
solute Jacts are diametrically opposed to
this. It Is not only the demand for bread
that la affected by cheap vegetables, but
far more so the demand for flour for house
hold purposes. In the majority of English
households of the present day, such ad
juncts to the dinner table as puddings, of
, which the principal component part Is
flour, are almost entirely absent, the op
portunity to use two or more vegetables,
and also the more plentiful supply of fruit
of all descriptions, going a very long wav
to reduce the consumption of flour for
household purposes to a minimum."

Demand for Machinery ln Brazil.—A let
ter to the Monlteur Offlclel dv Commerce,
written from Sao Paulo ssys: The atten
tion of the Industrial world should be
called to the water works which are being
contemplated and executed In the province
of Sao Paulo, as well as to the plans for
Illuminating a number of the cities. In the
city of Bao Paulo a water meter of Ameri
can Invention Is In general use, and most
of the apparatus used In water, gas and
eleotrlcal works ln the province has been
furnished by England or the United States.
But there are a number of cities which
contemplate the Introduction of systems
for supplying water or for Illumination,
and there is a good opening for French
enterprise.. San Carlos de Pinhal,. with
12.000 Inhabitants: Rio Clara, with 10,000;
Araraquera, with 8000; Plrassunungua,
with 8000; Demo, Descalvado, Brotas and
Porto Ferrelra may be mentioned. In
some fifteen cities, whose populations
range from 6000 to 15,000, wafer works are
already under way. According to a recent
decree all the cities of the province are
obliged to provide themselves with drink
able water, and plans are being every
where studied.

The compilation of the statistics of coal
production In the United States In 1896,
which has Just been completed by Statis
tician E. W. Parker of the United State
geological survey, shows that the product
in 1896 was 190,639,959 short tons, valued at
$195,667,649, against 193,117.530 short tone,
valued at $197,799,043, in 18!)5. a decrease of
2,477.571 short tons In amount and of $2,241,
--394 In value. The decrease In product was
entirely in that of Pennsylvania anthra
cite. The output of bituminous coal shows
an Increase of about 1,750,000 tons. The
anthracite product of Pennsylvania de
creased nearly 4,250,000 tons. It Is a not
able feature, however, that there was a
decrease ln the value of the bituminous
product fit over $1,600,000, notwithstanding
the Increased output, and that there was
a comparative Increase ln the value of
anthracite, although, on account of the
smaller production, It did not equal the
value in 1895. The average price, obtained
for anthracite at the mines Increased from
$1.41 in 1896 to $1.51 ln 1896. The average
price for bituminous declined from 86 cents
to 83 cents.
Among the Important bituminous coal
producing states. Pennsylvania, of course,
stands first, with an. output of nearly 50.
--000.000 tons. Illinois Is an easy second with
nearly 20,000,000 tons, or more than 75 per
cent of the combined product of West Vir
ginia and Ohio, which come third and
fourth respectively. The race between
Ohio and West Virginia was very close ln
1596, there being but 1000 ton« difference,
and the output of each nearly 13,000,000 tons.
These four states yield about 70 per cent
Of the total bituminous production.
Pennsylvania's bituminous product was
a little more than 1,000,000 tons less than in
1895. Ohio lost 480,000 tons. West Virginia
increased her output about 1,500,000 tons,
and Illinois about 2,000,000 tons. The other
Important states showing Increased pro
duction were Alabama, Arkansas, Colo
rado, Indian Territory, Kentucky, Mary
land and Texas, while Indiana, lowa, Kan
sas, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico,
Tennesse, Utah, Virginia, Washington and
Wyoming showed decreased production.
West Virginia had the mbst important In
crease among the Appalachian states, Illi
nois In the middle west, and Colorado was
the only state In the Rocky mountain
region wh.ose production Increased.
The production by states is shown in the

Bun & Co.'s Review
NEW YORK, June 25.— R. G. Dun & Cos.
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say:
There Is no step backward In business, al
though the season of midsummer, quiet is
here. Improvement continues gradual and
prudently cautious as .before, although In
many branches evident, where no signs
of It appeared a few weeks ago. Business
men of the highest standing In all parts
of the country having gradually perceived
that the tide has begun to rise, are regulat
ing their contracts and investments and
their plans for the future with a confi
dence quite unknown to them a short time
ago. Great changes before the adjourn
ment of congress are hardly to be expected,
but removal of uncertainty Is with reason
expected to bring Into operation buying
forces which have been restricted for
months. The main factor at this time Is
tho steadily brightening prospects for
crops Harvesting of wheat has already
begun In «ome winter wheat states, with
surprisingly good results In the central
region of California, so that 800,<fo0 tons Is
now of lied the minimum from the latter
state and statisticians' of repute calculate
on 60, < Wi,( v M bushels of winter wheat beyond
tho government estimate. Spring wheat
is doing remarkably well, with a practically
unknown Increase In acreage. The price
has advanced 1% Cents during the week,
with a decrease of 1,200,000 bushels In west
ern receipts and Atlantic exports of only
1,445,047 bushels, flour Included, against
1,713, mil last year, but It is Just the season
when figures have no value except as prov
ing how erroneous were estimates of the
crop of 1896. Iron and steel products aver
age a small fraction lower ln published
quotations, but only because private con
cessions which are now refused, were by
various authorities complacently con
cealed two weeks'ago. Pig Iron Is weaker
with a better demand at the east and at
Chicago, but the Impatience of valley fur
naces to resume work keeps Bessemer and
grey forge at last week's quotations at
Pittsburg. The best of the news was ma
terial- in Increased orders for' plates, ln
part for shipbuilding, In bars for agricul
tural Implement works, In structural'
shapes for buildings and bridges, and In
galvanized sheets. One heavy contract for
300 miles thlrty-lnich and 100 miles ten-ln,ch
pipe bought by tbe Australian government
for gold regions, excites many hopes in the
trade. The great ore producing companies
are cutting prices, Mesaba, Bessemer and
Fayal to $2.10. apparently In order to score
the biggest possible business of the year
as a baSls for future combination. Tin has
slowly advanced to 14 cents, ln spite of
heavy arrivals; 1200 tons of lead have been
sold, moderate quantities now bringing
342%. and purchases advanced lake copper
to 11%. While mills are somewhat better
employed and are buying to some extent
most of the purchases of wool are for
speculation, nearly three-quarters, being
at Boston alone, and the aggregate was
8,738,800 pounds at die three chief markets;
5,610,300 on foreign wool. Domestic wool Is
still held at relatively high prices at the
Failures for the week have been 216 In
the United States against 217 last year, and
24 ln Canada against $4 last year.
Bradstreet's Reviews
NEW YORK, June 25.—Bradstreet's re
view of general trade tomorrow will say
that ihe persistent misrepresentation of
the actual state of trade throughout the
country during the past month ln an ap
parent endeavor to make the prospective
Improvement ln business appear to b* Its
present condition, demands an examina
tion as to the facts, and Bradstreet's pre
sents condensed results of Interviews with
representative manufacturers and mer
chants at more than fifty Important com
mercial and Industrial centers east of the
Rocky mountains. The demand, except In
a few lines, is less pronounced than It was
two months ago. There Is no material in
crease ln the volume distributed compared
with a year ago, and prices for many
staples are lower, but there has been an
Improvement compared with the situation
prior to the presidential eleotiou of last
year and as contrasted with last January.
Many of the larger merchants and manu
facturers characterize the business t coord
for the first half or 1897 as a disappoint
ment ln contrast with anticipations In De
cember, 1896. On the other hand, confi
dence Is widespread In a revival of demand
this fall. Of the three great manufactur
ing Industries, iron and. steel, cottons nnd
wools, the first shows relatively the most
improvements, and woolens next, although
tariff delays have taken the edge, off de
mand In that line and permitted Importers
to stock up with nearly two years' sup
plies. Cotton goods still suffer from cut
l-rlcea, excessive competition and heavy
production. There is a better demand for
silks, millinery and confectionery, which,
aside from the prosperity of Ihe bicycle
Industry, constitute exceptions. Higher
prices for leading cereals, for meats and
Havana tobacco are noteworthy, and re
flect, respectively, unusually small sup
plies of wheat and strength o: the control
of thl meat supply and existing conditions
In Cuba. Exports of wheat, flour included
a< wheat, from both coasts of the United
States and from Montreal thH week
amount to 2,156,248 bushels, compared with
2,347.000 last week. 2,837,000 In the week one
year ago, 1,946,000 two years ago, 1,716,000
three years ago, and as contrasted with
1,911,000 in the like week of 1893.
There are 215 business failure* reported
throughout the-fnlted Slates this week,
compared with 226 last week, 21S in the
week a year ago, 215 two years ego, and as
contrasted with 18!t In the third week of
June, 1894. Only 17 business failures are
reported from Canada this week, against
34 last week and 19 In the week a year
Bradstreet's review of the stork market
will say: While public itnr-rot has In
creased considerably. It is still by no means
ft very broad speculation, and the decided
advances In so many leading stocks seem
doe largely to Inside support or 1 to pur
chases by large Interests that have in late
years taken little part in Wall street. Lon
don has been occupied with the Jubilee
celebration, but while Americans have
been strong there, It Is in the main a re
flection of movement here and the British
public displays no very marked tendency
to Interest Itself in our securities. Com
mission house buying here lias grown, but
there Is a general eomplalnt'that It has not
done so In proportion to the general ad
vance In prices and the market at Inter
vals has become dull. Professional traders
who realized profits have several times en
deavored to rrrovoke a reaction, but recent
experiences with the market does not en
courage operations on the short side of the
market. The appearance of some friction
in the senate over the wool schedule of
the tariff bill caused only a momentary de
gree of speculative hesitation, and the
crop nov.'s. with moderate gains In rail
roads, expectations of much better things
In the near future, encouraging lalk as to
Ihe business outlook and rumors of in
creased dividends on the shares of leadlncr
railroads all have combined to maintain
tho strongly bullish smi'menl that is re
sponsible for the present rise. The market
has paid little attention to the Strength of
foreign exchange, or the shipment of some
$500,000 gold. The bond market has been
strong In Investment and speculative Is
sues, particlpat'ng In the Improvement.
Municipal bond Issues find a ready market.
What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
NEW YORK, June 25.—Many thousands
of shares of stocks were bought on the
stock exchange today at prices mater
ially above last night's closing figures, the
advahce extending to a point or over ln
many prominent stocks. But the, market
sold oft later In the day on account of
apprehension caused by the large volume
of the gold shipments by tomorrow's
steamer, $2,300,000 In all being engaged for
export. Additional uneasiness was caused
by the fact that the whole amount was
taken from the United States sub-treasury
or from the assay office. The decline in
the prices of stocks which resulted was
very marked, offerings to realize being
very freely made for a time, and the
heaviness extended all through the list
The decline, however, brought dullness
and a diminution of offerings. Indicating
the undertone of strength ln the market.
The week's gold shipments now amount
to $4,800,000, which is a larger amount than
has gone out In any one week since the
first week of the present movement, that
ending May Blh, when the exports were
$9,000,000. The subsidence of apprehension
on account of gold exports In the stock
market has been mostly due to the sta
bility shown by the gold reserve ln the
United States treasury for several weeks
past, about $1440,000,000, In face of con
tinued exports of gold by exchange houses.
The amount of gold In the treasury at the
close of business yesterday was $142,783,486,
which Is considerably less than at any time
since the present gold movement began.
Of course today's additional withdrawals
of $2,300,000 do not appear In the above
statement of gold in the treasury. The
sterling exchange market was easier under
offerings of bills against ,the gold ship
ments, sixty-day bills receding % to 4.86.
The volume of dealings today was larger
than on any previous day of the year, the
total sales of all stocks reaching 325,000
shares, but nearly two-thirds of that
amount was absorbed ,by Sugar, the
Grangers, Chicago Gas and Bay State Oas.'
The list generally reacted to below last
night's close, showing net losses on the
day. Sugar, however, rallied' partially
and closed with a net gain of 1%. The
bond market displayed considerable ani
mation today, the transactions exceed
ing $2,000,000. The lower priced bonds dis
played aggressive strength, with pur
chases of the gilt-edged liens by invest,
ment interests tending to accentuate the
upward movement which has been In evi
dence for a long time. Government bonds
were slightly higher on transactions, a
block of $100,000 of the Aye coupons chang
ing hands at 114%.

European Markets
NEW YORK. June 25.-The Evening
Post's London financial cnblegram fays:
The carry-over In mines and ln general
securities absorbed attention in the stock
markets today. Americans and Kaffirs
show the growth of a rpcculatlve account.
Contangoes on Americans were 2% to f
per cent, tho clearer rates being partly due
to dearer money at the end cf the half
year. The tcne here Is good all around,
with AmcriMtts and Kaffirs as the fea
tures. Both look like forging ahead, but
until the holiday aspect cf the Markets
has discoursed It will be cl filcult to dis
cover the precise drift. All that can be
said at present Is that the buying, while
• nlluentlnl. Is cliquish ami professional
Americana closed under the beat. Grand
Trunks were strong. It Is the belief here
Miat London may send New York con
siderable geld in (he autumn. The Paris
bourse opened firm, but closed rather dull.
The Berlin market was steady.

Yesterday's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO, June 25.—1n Wheat the- main
question was again tho July deal, and the
trading In that future soon disclosed the
fact that It was all alive and stuffed with
dynamite. September got some advantage
from the rapidity of the opening bulge in
July, but the former proceeded at a quite
terlng the shorts by the force of the first
explosion. Excepting' the attitude of the
July future, the Influence of the early
Items of news were generally bearish.
Liverpool showed only a %d advance in re
sponse to a l%d rise here yesterday. The
most bearish feature of the situation, how
ever. Was the home harvest prospects. A
winter wheat crop of over 300.0W-.r09 is gen
erally admitted, and the news from the
northwest was that the wheat ln the Da
kotas. Minnesota and Manitoba was mak
ing excellnet progress. On the other hand.
New York reported foreigners buying
futures, and reports of damage by storms
were from, the South and southwest. Chi
cago receipts of wheat were 10 cars; Min
neapolis and Duluth got 207 cars, against
410 the corresponding day of the year be
fore. July opened at from G9T4<S7O. as com
pared with 7G%070% at the close yester
day. It hovered for a few minutes- be
tween 70% and 70% and then shot up to 71%.
There was plenty for sale at the latter
price, and It came back with a rush to
that point again; on one of the latter sud
den recoveries its Impetus could not be
stopped until It got to 71%. The best prices
of ths clay were made about fifteen min
utes from the close. Several prominent
houses were heavy buyers and In the gen
eral mauling July shot up to 72. The clos
ing price was 71%. Corn was firm, but
much less active than on the clay before.
The market for the most part followed
wheat. Oats stnrtec] firm, but yielded with
corn. Provisions were slow, but llrm. The
opening was easier on the decline in prices
at the yards. This decline was soon re
covered on seme short coverings and out
side supper.
