THE INVESTOR
OFFICE OF THE HERALD,
Lob Angeles, July 12,1597.
The business failures for six months are
epitomized by Bradstreet's In a lengthy
article from which the following extracta
are made:
The record of business failures through
out the United States during the past six
months Is not as favorable as was antici
pated at the close of the first quarter of
the current calendar year, particularly
with reference to the aggregate liabilities,
which have been unexpectedly increased
by the embarrassment of several large
manufacturing and other concerns in New
England. The six months' exhibit includes
7024 failures of individuals, firms and cor
porations In business, compared with 7602
in the first half of 196. a falling oft of 578,
yet the aggregate number of failures since
January Ist, with that exception, is larger
than during a corresponding period In any
preceding year. As compared with the
first half of 1895, the total for six months
ending June 30, 1897, shows an increase of
427, and as compared with a like portion of
1894 the gain is 496; contrasted with the like
portion of 1893, including two months at
the beginning of the panic, it is l 785, and
as compared with the first half of the
calendar year 1892 the gain is 1673. The
7024 business failures during the past six
months record $93,656,495 liabilities, $11,
--879,000 less than In the corresponding period
of last year, $77,204,000 less 1 than in the first
half of the panic of 1593, but $13,949,000 more
than in the corresponding period of 1595,
$11,101,000 more than in the like portion of
1894, and $37,121,000 more than in the first
half of the calendar year 1892. While the
business failures for the period under con
sideration are the most numerous for any
year since these records have been com
piled, with the single exception of the first
six months of 1896, total liabilities are the
largest during the past eighteen years, ex
cept during the six months' period In 1896
and in the panic years 1893 and 1884.
An additional evidence that the liquida
tion consequent upon the disturbance
caused by the panic of 1893 had not been
completed prior to the current year is found
in the ratio of assets to liabilities among
failing traders, the proportion amounting
to 58 per cent since the first of January,
as compared with 57 per cent in the first
half of 1896. 65 per cent in the like period
of 1895 and 54 per cent in the correspond
ing period of 1894. But as compared with
the like portion of 1893, when, the panic pro
duced embarrassments among a large
number of heavily capitalized concerns
which were relatively solvent, the ratio
of total assets to liabilities was' 61 per
cent, the largest ever recorded. With this
exception the proportion of assets to lia
bilities of failing traders during the past
six months is the largest recorded, the cor
responding ratio In the panic year 1884 hav
ing been only 66 per cent.
On the Pacific coast there have been
fewer failures In Oregon and Washington
and more in California, Nevada and Idaho,
while the total liabilities', $4,794,000, are
about $45,001) smaller than last year. Among
the territories there are fewer failures in
Arizona, New Mexico and Altaska, but
more in Indian territory and Oklahoma.
Total liabilities of embarrassed concerns
in this group, $654,611, show a decrease of
a little more than one-half from the like
total last year.
■*• ♦ +
June bank clearings reflect an enlarged
volume of speculation and trade in a total
which is 6.8 per cent larger than that of
May, 3.7 per cent more than in June a year
ago, 1.2 per cent more than In June, 1595,
and 24 per cent more than In. June, 1894. The
decrease compared with the January total
this year is less than 1 per cent, while the
falling oft from June, 1892, is only 10 per
cent. Southwestern and New England
cities show the largest gains as compared
with a year ago, 15.5 and 10.9 per cent re
spectively, while the heaviest decrease is
that of the northwestern group, IS percent.
The entire gain at all cities In June over a
year ago is accounted for by the increases
at the cities of New York and Boston, re
spectively 6 and 13 per cent. For six
months clearings are still behind those
of a year ago. The total clearings at
seventy-six cities are $24,964,430,282, a de
crease of 2.2 per cent from the like total in
1896 and 1 per cent from 1595, but a gain of
13 per cent over the total for 1594. Com
pared with 1892 and 1893 the decrease is
about 18 per cent.

In reviewing the condition of the iron and
steel market for the first half of 1897, the
Philadelphia Press says l that a consider
able amount of business has been done, but
at figures so low as to preclude the possi
bility of even fair profits. Two or three
weeks ago a slight turn for the better was'
witnessed, but conditions reacted, with
the result that prices now are virtually
as low as they have ever been. Compar
ing present prices with those ruling in the
last week of 1596, it will be found that pig
iron is about $1, billets $2.50, bar iron $4,
plates' $41 and beams $6 to $8 a ton lower.
Considering tho fact that at that time the
various pools contributed to the buoyancy
of the market the decline is less notable.
There are no trusts now to lend artificial
support to the market. Some in the iron
trade are of the opinion that it is difficult
to find any substantial basis for believing
more than that it is easier to make sales,
that prices are steadier and that the out
look is more favorable. Meanwhile quota
tions remain at the lowest figures on
record.

During June the market for anthracite
coal has shown a tendency to improve
ment. According to the July letter of the
Anthracite Coal Operators' association the
action of some of the companies in advanc
ing prices at tidewater and along the line
will undoubtedly cause more or less activ
ity in the trade. This same letter further
says that the market in its present position
fully Justifies' the advance that has been
made, and it is altogether improbable that,
after the struggle for six months lo keep
the output within the market require
ments, at undoubted loss to tho transporta
tion companies, advantage will not be
taken of the good results obtained and
prices held firmly and advancing to the
new circular. It is believed that anthra
cite will not sell for less than its present
price during this summer or early fall, ar.d
that purchasers have everything favoring
i profitable investment.

The receipts by collections of internal
revenue on tobacco from January Ist lo
June Ist show an increase of $678,000 com
pared with the same time last year. The
output of cigars ana cheroots, as Indicated
by tax receipts, shows a falling off, receipts
being nearly $130,000 less. The table below
shows the income derived by the treasury
department from tobacco of all kinds from
January 1 to May 31, 1597, and comparisons
for the corresponding period of 1896:

It has been stated that the Pope Manu
facturing Company, of Hartford, Conn.,
one of the oldest bicycle manufacturing
concerns in the country, has decided to
reduce prices of Columbia and Hartford
wheels. The reduction will average about
25 per cent. This action has been antici
pated for some months. Heavily decreased
salea of high grade wheels of this year's
make is responsible for the cut. It seems
to bo the opinion in the trade that a gen
eral reduction in tho prices of all makes
of bicycles will follow.

Eighteen mortgages were recirded in

Mail advices from Boston report the sale
of 1,000,000 pounds Copper by the Calumet
& Hecla Copper Company of Michigan at
11% cents. This is one of a few articles
of large consumption that has escaped the
dire influence of the hard times of the past
four years. There has been a steady and
Increasing demand for copper throughout
this long period of unparalleled depres
sion. Despite the large Increase in the
aggregate production, of copper In this
country since 1893 there appears to be no
material accumulation of stock in any
quarter. We are now turning out copper
on a scale that has no- counterpart In the
past fifty years, and most of the pro
ducers are making money even at 11 cents
per pound.

ON 'CHANGE
What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
Street
NEW YORK, July 12.—Sugar occupied
the most attention on the stock market
today and Its buoyancy was a sustaining
feature throughout the list with the ex
ception of such stocks as were subject to
special depressing influences. The course
of sugar was directed by the gossip about
the tariff conference in Washington and
tho price sufficiently indicates that this
pointed to action that would Insure prof
itable protection on refined sugar. The
outstanding short interest, which has been
reputed to be large, showed a nervous ap
prehension under the persistent strength
of fhe stock and extensive covering car
ried the stock up by leaps and bounds, the
closing being buoyant and. 135, the high
point, six points above the low point. The
movement to cover became something likt'
a stampede at tho close, large blocks
changing hands on the rising price. The
sales of this stock readied a total of over
52.000 shares which was over one-half the
aggregate of all sales. The price readied
135, which is the highest on record for
the stock. On June 29 the price touched
130 and has since ruled below that figure
until today. Outside of sugar the market
was dull, tho variations being shown only
■n unimportant stocks. The opening was
higher and quite distinctly disregarded of
the tone of the London exchange, on which
prices were lower. The international
shares were, however, comparatively neg
lected. The grangers showed marked de
pression during a portion of the day, re
ceding an average of about a point below
the early gain, but .they recovered! the
loss. The anthracite roads were firm.
Features of the day were the appearance
of grain and cotton bins of excrange in
the market and some short selling of long
bills of exchange. There was no further
hardening of exchange rates manifest and
ths indication Is strengthened that gold
shipments for the season are over. The
bond market was fairly active, with frac
tional higher values prevalent In the spec
ulative issues. Tho aggregate sales were
$1,075,000. Government bonds- were well
supported and gained a fraction on pur
chases of $22,000.

CHICAGO MARKET
Yesterday's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO, July 12.—0f wheat It may he
said that the market has now fairly gotten
into the usual rut. The opening price for
September today was from C5'i5f65%, a
shade under Saturday's closing price and
up to 12 oclock the range had only extended
from [email protected]'>%. The news was rather con
tradictory, Liverpool opened weak and de
cidedly lower, new wheat was appearing
more liberally in the leading markets, while
there was very little appearance of foreign
buying orders. The world's shipments,
however, had a bullish tendency as the
amount shipped by tho various countries
last week aggregated only 4,255,000 bushels
as against 0,157,000 bushels* the week be
fore. The visible supply report was also
bullish, as it showed a decrease last week
of 947,000 bushels, where there had been an
Increase the corresponding week last year
of 21,000 bushels. The receipts at Chicago
since Saturday were only nine car loads,
of which five were new winter of various
kinds. Minneapolis and Duluth reported
receipts of only 284 cars, against 481 the
corresponding day of last year. Kansas
City alvlsed the receipt of 122 cars of new
wheat, which was the most bearish Item
of the forenoon news. The government re
port issued Saturday did not seem to exert
much Influence, although the Indicated
crop was nearly 100,000,000 bushels less than
what some of the private bureaus have re
ported. The market touched 66%©45% late
in the session, but became firm again under
covering by shorts and sold up to 6574. It
reacted to 65%fa65%. which'was the price
at the close. Speculative business in corn
was much smaller than of late and opera
tions were largely of a scalping character.
Oats ruled steady on a light amount of
trading. In provisions the consideration
was the enormous hog receipts, some 11,000
more than expected. This caused a very
weak opening, but the market rallied later
when the grain markets showed improve
ment.

Not Likely to Intrude
In the Brazilian hotels men are em
ployed to do the chamberwork. and they
are prone to rush into the bedrooms of
the guests when occasion requires with
out knocking. A prim little Yankee
"schoolmarm" visitir»g Rio de Janeiro,
was much annoyed at this custom, and
after mildly protesting several times
without effect, she said severely to the
boy who did the work in her room:
"Juan, be good enough to understand
that I will not allow you to open the doot
of my room without knocking. If you do
it again I shall certainly report you at
the office. Why, I might be dressing!"
"No danger of that, secora," responded
Juan, In his best English, "because be
fore I come in I always look me through
the keyhole."
To Improve the Flavor of Peas
To improve green peas put the pods
Into a pot, cover and boil thoroughly;
then strain and put the peas Into the
same water andi boil tender. With the
butter, salt and pepper add a small
pinch of sugar.—Pittsburg Dispatch.

ARIZONA NOTES
Eastern Tucson is called windmill ad
dition on account of its numerous wind
mills. Two of its Spanish citizens are
named Don Quixote de la Mancha and
Sancho Panza,
The outlook in the Dragoons mining
district, near Tombstone, wasnever bet
ter. Leasers on the Wien mine are get
ting 30 ounces of silver and some gold
from their assays.
Tombstone got its first rain of the sea
ton July 7.
The ground caved from the surface to
tihe 50-foot level in the Mammoth mine
at Goldflelds, emtombing one miner. At
last accounts the ma,n, could be heard
working with his pick to extricate him
self. A large force is engaged in the work
of rescue.
Fred Curtis, an 11-year old Prescott
boy, was approached by a Mexican rid
ing a burro, who drew a revolver loaded
with shot and opened fire on the lad
without any word or provocation. Four
shots took effect, when the Mexican
abandoned the burro and lied. The boy
will recover.
John. Sullivan and Thomas Thompson
had a steer-tying contest at Prescott for
$500. Sullivan tied his> first steer in
1:17%, the best time made on one steer.
His next time was 15:48; the steer
jumped the fence. Tied remaining three
in following time: 4:55, 1:48, 2:l4—total
time, 25:45%. Thos, Thompson tied steers
in following time: 1:57, 1:57%, 1:42, 2:05
—total, four steers', 7:14 1 /z.
Prescott, taking time by the forelock,
is planning to hold a miners' celebration
on Thanksgiving day.
In Southern Arizona some of the big
sahuaro cacti have old Indian arrows
sticking in them near the top, resulting
perhaps from making a miss in shooting
off the fruit. Of course the Indian does
not often miss his mark, but a thousand
successes would leave' no record, while a
single miss would leave a conspicuous
sign that would tell its story to every
passer-by for generations.
The day before he was executed, Philip
Lashby, who was hung at Tucson last
Friday, played the guitar and sang for
the rest of the prisoners in the county
Jail all the afternoon.
About 140 people from Phoenix and
other points along the line left for Los
Angeles and the coast resorts lant
Thursday.
Tucson is bragging because there has
not been an arrest for drunkenness in
that city for a week. But, was nobody
drunk?
The Dainty Lace Jackets
Jackets of lace are among the novel-
ties cf the season. These were origi
nally intended to be Worn through the
summer. But some stylish women have
started out to use them as jat kets
the very thin organdy and muslin gowns,
and they look particularly well with the
mouiseline de soie and silk mull gowns.
They drop a little below the waist line
in length ar.d have a short postillion
back. These are newer than the Eton
or bolero jackets, which, however, do
not lose their place in feminine affection.
All the jack-eta fit tight in the back, but
the present fad is to have the front loose
and open over a full vest of some mater
ial. Some are fitted more closely than
others and have one dart; but even then
there must be the long, loose line from
the throat to the waist. Black face jack
ets are particularly suitable for older
women, and look exceedingly well made
of strips of insertion. They can be worn
over black silk gown and really do give
a certain amount of warmth. There is
warmth in a piece of lace, as everyone
who has worn it knows, and these jack
ets form an outer garment that is light
and cool, and certainly make the gown
that has to be worn in the street look
much finer than one worn with nothing
over the waist. —Harper's Bazar.
Heat of the Sun
E«t.mates of the sun's temperature have
ranged from 15,000,000.000 degrees down to
3000 degrees Fahr. At the Moscow ohserva
tory. Prof. Ceraski has repeated the old ex
periment of measuring the heat of direct
sunlight at the focus of a mirror, the
mirror In this case being very accurately
made and having a focal length «' about
3i> Inches. The result was 3500 degrees C.
(6300 degrees FaJir.). showing only that
the solar temperature is greater than this.
A measurement of the heat reflected from
an arc lamp was then, made, the tempera
ture in the focus of the mirror proving
to be only 100 degrees to 150 degrees C, al
though the arc itself was known to have a
temperature of very nearly 3500 degrees.
From this it is argued that the tempera
ture of the sun must be very much more
than 3500 degrees, while it is believed that
this- method may lead to an accurate es- ,
tiroate.
All prices of wan paper greatly reduced.
