THE INVESTOR
OFFICE OF THE HERALD,
Los Angeles, July 9, 1597.
A very remarkable showing is made In
the June sales of municipal bonds, which,
according to tho New York Bond Buyer,
reached the aggregate amount of $19,977,919,
consisting of 202 different Issues sold to 155
different bidders.
Each of these separate totals is extraor
dinary by comparison with any previous
months. The number of separate offers
is fully double the average of all the
months during the past six years. The in
crease in offers is not in any sense ab
normal, for the number of direct bidders—
those buying original Issues—has increased
in like proportion, while new banking
houses making a specialty of municipal
securities have been organized and begun
operations. The savings banks, trust and
Insurance companies are more eager buy
ers of good long term municipals than in
any year for half a decade or more. The
total of sales for June is larger than that
of any month since 1891, except the phe
nomenal month of November, 1896, when
unsold accumulatlona of the five months
of the presidential campaign were sold
to the amount of $33,705,714 in three weeks
after it was known that McKinley had
prevailed before the people.
♦ ♦■ ♦
Following are the Bond Buyer's figures
of comparative monthly sales of municipal
bonds for the first six months of 1896 and
1897:
1896 1897
January $7,652,047 $12,368,821
February 3,9R6,563 13,343,423
March 9.123.586 13,708,195
April 5,991,922 15,154,651
May 11,823,370 10,316,364
June 14,135,639 19,977,919
Total $52,713,727 $84,869,373
Average 8,795.228 14,114,895

parison- by "months will offer investors un

1896, of a free silver candidate on the Demo
cratic ticket demoralized the municipal
bond business from July until
and sales ran down to tbe low average of
only $5,000,000 a month. We must, there
fore, base calculations for the next six
months on the results obtained during tbe
past half year. The. average of monthly
sales for the last named period reached
the figure of $14,114,895, equivalent to total
annual sales of about $170,000,000. It Is not
to be anticipated that business in munici
pal bonds will fall off during the summer
or vacation months. Capital is a laborer
who has no holidays or Sundays, takes no
vacation, and works night and day, with
out food or clothing or shelter. It cannot
afford to lie idle, but must seek employ
ment at all times.
Two very Interesting questions have been
offered by one of our English contempo
raries, which are rarely touched upon
except from the, dry-as-dust standpoint of
statisticians 1 . They are: How much coin
is there ln> circulation? and what Is the
money appetite of different parts of the
world?
Answering the first question, the writer
states that of the three most valuable
mediums—gold, silver and paper—there is
over $12,000,000,000 in circulation, divided as
follows: Gold, $3,775,000,000; silver, $3,975,
--000,000: paper, $1,400,000,000. Copper coins
are not taken Into consideration.
The comparison of the gold coin held in
different nations is shown by a table which
places France in the first place, the United
Kingdom second and the United States
third. In silver coin India holds the first
place, France second and the United States
third, with England a poor fifth. This
answerß the second question.
In twenty .years the specie reserve In the
banks of the world has trebled, while the
paper issue has only risen 33 per cent. The
ratio of paper money in general use in 1870
was 38 per cent, and in 1890 79 per cent. It
also appears that the amount of capital
employed in ban-king has almost doubled
since 1870. The checks pain in New York
and London in one month aggregated
16,350,000,000.
♦ ♦ ■*■
The Russian minister of finance has in
serted in the journal of St. Petersburg an
official note with regard to the stock of
gold held by the Russian government and
the Bank of Russia. The note is pub
lished because certain foreign journals
have wrongly represented that this stock
has recently been diminished, whereas the
opposite is the case. At the end of 1890
the gold held by the government in the
banks, including the balances, mi the hands
of foreign correspondents, amounted to
1583,980,000, and on March 28th It stood
$591,384,000.

It is stated that there have been rele
gated to farm lands over one hundred ad
ditions and town sites in Kansas, which
were relieved of corporate existence by the
recent Legislature. The preceding Legis
lature dissolved 212, and the one before 83.
The tragedy of the boom period lies hidden
in these facts. The losses to real estate in
vestors Involved in the reversion of this
larTd to its original status is Incalculable.
It Is painful to contemplate the suffering
to innocent persons, widows, small traders,
etc., which the collapse of these ventures
must have inflicted. Kansas is not to
blame, says the American Banker. Her
people have done and are doing what they
can to mitigate the evil consequences of the
inflation period.

Directors of a bank cannot be held per
sonally liable for loss by loan to one of
their number who was a merchant in good
standing and credit and doing a large bus
iness which required accommodation,
where the transactions were such that men
of ordinary prudence engaged In the busi
ness of lending money might have done the
same, and in a period of financial strin
gency they extended the loans in good
faith for the purpose of preventing the
failure and protecting the interests of the
bank. Wheeler vs. Aiken. 1.. & Say. Bank

The complete trade statistics of the
United States Treasury department for
the calendar year 1596 are at hand. The
total American purchase of Mexican mer
chandise (not precious metals) products
for the year was. gold values, $15,887,059, as
compared with $18,207,43 In 1895, a decrease
of $2,320,344, which is more than accounted
for by the smaller coffee crop here avalla
able for export, the falling off of Mexico's
coffee shipments to the United States In
1536, as compared with the previous year,
being $2,926,544. This fact encourages us
to believe that the trade of this country
with its greatest customer is in a healthy
condition. A short coffee crop here ex
plains the loss in Mexico's sales to her
northern neighbor. . Although the sales
of staple articles of export to the United
States fell off In. 1886, as compared with
1595, the record of Mexico is not at all a
discouraging one, for the American people
were comparatively poor, reducing their
volume of Imports from the whole world
by $120,093,000, a falling off of 14.9 per cent
from 1595, while the Importations from
Mexico diminished but 12.07 per went.

Dun & Co.'s Review
NEW YORK, July 9.— R. G. Dun & Co's
weekly review of trade tomorrow will say:
The strike of bituminous coal miners has
taken 75,0000r more from work and threat
ens to restrict supplies of fuel in. some
quarters, though the West Virginia and
some other mines which declined to take
part claim to be able to meet the eastern
demand for some months. In, the west
the strike is by no means unitedly sus
tained, and the impression prevails that it
will not last long. The tin plate works have
settled the wage question, and are again
busy and show a production of 4.500.000
boxes yearly, with a capacity of 6,250,000
boxes. The bar mills have more trouble,
but a general settlement of Iron and steel
wages is expected without much delay.
New orders are small since the annua]
vacation began, but yet are large enough,
the season considered, to afford some en-
couragement. Tin Is stronger at 14.10,
without concessions, and copper, with a
large export demand at 11.12 cents for lake,
while in lead sales of 1000 fons or more
leave the price about 3.7 cents. The woolen
mills are getting decidedly more orders
for fall wants and beginning hopefully on
spring goods, but are cautious in con
tracts for future delivery. Some have made
large purchases of wool, but by far the
greater part of the sales, which amounted
to 13,120,000 pounds at the three chief mar
kets for the week, have been of speculative
character. Western prices are held much
above those of seaboard markets. Mon
tana scoured being sold, according to re
ports, at the equivalent of 42 cents at the
east, against 38 cents at Boston, 40 cents
at Philadelphia. There is a better demand
for domestic wool in expectation of higher
prices. While the most cautious estimates
of wheat have been advanced, that of the
Orange Judd Farmer to 575,000.000, prices
have been lifted nearly 3Vi cents here, al
though Atlantic exports, flour Included,
were fo rthe week 1,513,000 bushels, against
1.415.33S bushels last year. Western receipts
are small only 1,399,632 bushels, against
2,973,409 last year and the disposition of
farmers to hold for higher prices is
strengthened by many foreign- reports.
Failures tor the week have been 206 in
the United States against 215 last year, and
31 in Canada, against 29 last year.
Bradstreet's Reports
NEW YORK, July 9.—Bradstreet's to
morrow will say: There Is only a moderate
volume of trade throughout the country,
the more noteworthy changes being
checked demand in the west and north
west, due to the excessive heat and storms,
continued favorable reports as to the cereal
and other crop prospects, and disturbance
in industrial lines, due to the strike of
about 120,000 bituminous coal miners. The
reluctance of West Virginia operatives to
join In the strike complicates the situation.
The prospect of an early settlement of the
tariff has strengthened the widespread
feeling of hopefulnss that the autumn
will bring a revival of consumptive de
mand. Prices show an advance of one
lifth of 1 per cent during June. Exports
of wheat (Hour included as wheat) from
both coasts- of the United Stales and
from Montreal this week amount t~2.502,
--606 bushels, compared with 2.778.000 bushels
last week, and 2,167,000 bushels in the week
a year ago. 2,317.000 bushels two years ago,
2,377,000 bushels three years ago and as con
trasted with 4,134,000 bushels in the like
week of 1893.
There are 215 business failures reported
throughout the United States this week,
compared with 223 last week, 219 In the
week last year, 226 two years ago, 229 three
years ago and as compared with 398 In the
first week of July, 1593. There are 34 busi
ness failures reported from the Dominion
of Canada this week, compared with 33 last
week, 32 In the week a year ago, 30 two
years ago and 34 in the first week of July,
1894.
FINANCIAL REVIEW
In the review of the stock market tomor
row Bradstreet's will say: Somewhat un
settled conditions have prevailed in specu
lation during the past week, the fluctua
tions being narrow and' the activity of the
market depending altogether on the pro
fessional' element. The foreign profes
sional speculative interests, which bought
our stocks during May and. June, have
apparently liquidated their holdings and
are now credited with- having sold Ameri
cans to a considerable amount for the
short account. Realizing sales have appar
ently been exhausted and there is no dispo
sition to liquidate. Apart from the pur
chasing by shorts whenever the market
has shown weakness, there also would
seem to be a demand for stock* at con
cessions iit prices. The overshadowing In
fluence In the market has been, the tariff
bill. A generally iirmer tone appeared
when It became positively known thaCThe
measure would pass the senate, but the
realization of this expectation last
Wednesday and the submission of the bill
to tho conference committee only served
to raise rumors of fresh delay, and, in par
ticular, of further modifications of the
sugar schedule in a way to render it less
acceptable to the refining interests. Lon
don on Friday took an unfavorable view
of the reports from Washington that a
message on tho currency from the presi
dent has been withheld because it might
create sllverite opposition to the tariff
bill. There was, accordingly, further for
eign selling here, but our market absorbed
the offerings, and, though dull on Friday,
was firm aiud slightly higher. The bitumin
ous coal miners' strike affected, the Lotidon
market for a time, but was soom lost sight
of here, because the western bituminous
carriers are already nearly all In bad
financial shape and have ceased to be
speculative factors.
ON 'CHANGE
What Was Done Yesterday in Wall
Street
NEW YORK. July 9.—The result of the
day's trading is a small average gain in the
price of stocks, but the larger part of the
sales during the day was made at prices
considerably below yesterday's close, and
it was only in the final hour that a cover
ing movement stimulated the prices to a
level above last night's close and a point
or over above the low level of today in
many shares. There was no news to ac
count for the general movement of the
market unless It was the continued good
prospects for crops, which sustained tho
grangers. Pacilic Mail was very active ani
notably strong on the reported intention
of the directors to raise the dividend rate.
Sugar was the subject of the usual flood
of rumors regarding the Intention of the
tariff conference, but ruled above last
night's close nearly all (lay and closed
with a net gain of a point, raising sharply
at the close on covering. Commission house
buying was lacking, the London market
was not a factor, and, in fact, manipula
tion made effective by the narrowness of
the market was about the only influence
which made Itself manifest. There was a
marked diminution in the volume of deal
ings. A brisk inquiry prevailed for the
middle grade bonds and some substantial
improvements were recorded. The general
market also advanced slightly, while a
more cheerful sentiment prevailed
throughout the dealings. The aggregate
sales were $1,460,000. Government bonds
were a shade lower all around. The trans
actions were $10,000.

CHICAGO MARKET
Yesterday's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO, July 9.—Notwithstanding
lower quotations for wheat from Liver
pool and Paris, the market here started
firm. September closed yesterday at 66Vi
-366%, opened at from those ligures to
1-16 higher. Its tendency to rise was soot:
overcome. After advancing to 66Vft<S*68ft.
it turned downward, and about an hour
from the opening it got down to 66 cents.
The sweltering heat of the trading pit was
such that the brokers kept away from I:
when they were not rompeiled by receipt
of an order to brave th( per?on?ii discom
fort of Its execution. The course of the
foreign markets caus~d a general sus
picion that the foreign crop injury had
been greatly exaggerated. Expectation of
a bearish government crop report tomor
row also had a tendency to restrict buying.
Chicago receipts were only 2 cars. North
west receipts were light too, one of the
bullish factors. Minneapolis and Duluth
reported receipts of 1-2 cars, against 263
a week ago and 41$ on the corresponding
day of the year before. Talk of excessive
purchases of new wheat to arrive in Chi
cago this month had a depressing effect
on the market in the middle of the day.
and It did net recover its early buoyancy.
The Atlantic port clearances were very lib
eral, being equal in wheat and flour to
515,000 bushels. New York reported for
eign buying orders in the market, but
generally at unworkable limits. The sale?
there for export were said to be only ten
load 3 for the day. Here sales of spring
wheat for shipment to country millers
amounted to 710.000 bushels. The price for
September slowly declined to 63% cents and
closed at that. Corn was active for
awhile in the morning, but the heat drove
traders away. The market closed quiet
and weak. Oats were slow, both for the
cash article and for the speculative fea
tures. In provisions the market was one
of liquidation: prices started at some ad
vance, due to a strong hog market, but the
packers took advantage of it to dispose
of all the market could bear. The volume
of trading, however, was not heavy enough
to cause radical weakness.
