The tolal amount of all kinds of money
In circulation on July Ist was $!,646,025,210,
a sum which, as has already been Inti
mated, represents an increase of over $186,
--390,000 as compared with the corresponding
dafc last year. The treasury ofrtiials esti
mated the population of the United States
on July Ist at 72,937,000. On the basis of
that estimate the circulation per capita
amounted to $22.57. This represents a die
crease of 23 cents for the month, but an in
crease of $1.12 as compared with the corre
sponding date last year.

National bank circulation outstanding on
June 30th amounted, according to the re
port of the comptroller of the currency, to
$231,356,126, which represents a decrease of
$454,025 for the month, but an.increase of
$1,433,166, as compared with the correspond
ing date last year. The portion of the cir
culation, based on the deposit of bonds,
amounted to $206,093,226, which represents
a decrease of $144,155 for the month, but
an Increase of $1,156,297 for the twelve
months ending therewith. The portion, of
the circulation secured by the deposit of
money amounted to $24,665,788, which rep
resents an increase of $15,017 for the month
and of $4,291,757 for the year ending there

While not making as good a comparison
In June as In May, railway earnings on the
whole are fairly satisfactory and indicative
of steadiness in progress toward Improved
conditions. According to Bradstreet's the
percentage of gain shown for June Is con
siderably less' than that for May, but is in
excess of the gain over the preceding year
shown In any preceding month since last
autumn. A comparison of the percentages
of gain in- the different group?' shows that
in few cases' did the railroads do as well
In June as In May, and decreases! iu> earn
ings are reported where increases had
previously been Indicated. Tlie sole excep
tion Is furnished by the Mexican roads,
which report the heaviest monthly gain In
gross receipts for more than a year past.
Total earnings of 105 companies' for the
month of June, according to the same au
thority, aggregate $35,226,024, an increase
of 2.2 per cent over June a year ago. The
gain in May, it will be recalled, was in ex
cess of 5 per cent, but the gain in April was
only 1.5 per cent, In March 1.7 per cent,
while in January and February actual de
creases were shown. An encouraging fea
ture Is that the increase of 2.2 per cent In
June this year follows a gain of over 7 per
cent in aggregate earnings in June a year
ago over June, 1895, and this In turn fol
lowed an increase of Sper cent over June,
1594. The best showing matte among Amer
ican roads In June was by the Paclllc group,
an increase of 7.4 per cent. In no other case
did the gain exceed 3 per cent, and the
majority of groups either reported de
creases of small amounts or comparatively
trilling gains.

Some In the anthracite coal trade hold the

consumers will be forced to adopt anthra

What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
NEW YORK, July 19.—The stock mar
ket today was almost unparalleled, for a
July day's trailing, both in activity and
Strength. Enormous dealings in bonds at
advancing prices was a lit accompaniment
for a broadening stock market. By ali
ocUls Sugar was the great feature, the
traders realizing that the refining inter
ests had secured the reporting of a sugar
schedule, that, if adopted by congress,
would mean a profitable business for the
sugar compuny for the ensuing four years
at least. Sugar scored, an extreme advance
for the day of 10%, touching 14414, breaking
the previous high record. At the opening
6000 shares we re sold at from 136 to 339. Tre
mendous blocks of the stock changed hands
at almost uniformly rising prices. Thous
ands of shares were taken by a brokerage
house reputed to represent a most powerful
Interest, which Is credited with having re
cently acquired large quantities of that
security. The argument that the new sugar
"schedule would result in some increase in
protection over that provided in the pres
ent law stimulated/ extensive covering or,
the part of the shorts, who, temporarily,
at least, lost faith in their previous posi
tion. The tumultuous scene at the sugar
post continued well throughout the clay.
116,000 shares having been bought and l sold.
In the closing hours the stock eased off a
trifle, reaching 2% below the best, but
loaned at % per cent premium for use over
night. Sugar preferred also had its own
extreme gain for the day of 8 per cent, two
points, of which were later lost. The slack
ening demand for the speculative leader
only slightly modified the bullish develop
ment In the rest of the list. Standard
shares, however, showed an average rise
at the close of 1 to 3 per cent. London
was caught short In both St. Paul and
Louisville and Nashville, and the foreign
purchases considerably exceeded the Eale
until the railway list was generally in
fluenced by further reports of foreign-crop
shortages and the prediction of improved
earnings due to excellent progress of
American crops. A number of prominent
railway shares made new record prices,
especially the granger roads. Northern
Pacific preferred gained three points. The
bond market was featured by enormous
transaction's which aggregated $3,420,000,
and Included extensive variety of issues.
The tendency of values was upward
throughout, which thoroughly reflected the
growing confidence In the financial ami
ccmmrrlcal situation. The extreme gains
ranged up to 4 per cent, with Oregon Im
provement fives, trust receipts, leading.

Yesterday's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO, July 19.—The Liverpool quo
tations, which had been the main source
of strength to the wheat market, were re
ported l%d lower this morning and Chi
cago had 08 carloads of wheat inspected
into store since Saturday morning, 53 of
them from this year's crop. These were
the reasons for the weakness which had
un opening decline of from % to % indicat
ed. Total receipts at the five "principal
winter wheat markets amounted to 371,
--974, of which 244,0i)0 bushels was reported
from Kansas City.
Last year on the corresponding day the
receipts at the same five cities were 400,079
bushels, so that the deficiency between the
present and previous season is not now
very striking. That feature of the move
ment should change rapidly from now on.
It is with that expectation that some bear
ish feeling is developing among the lead
ing speculators, which would quickly be
come very aggressive with a little en
couragement in the way of weakness
abroad. The visible supply, which was ex
pected to show about 500,000 bushels re
duction, decreased 1.255.000 bushels, leav
ing the total at 15,324.000 bushels compared
wlih 46,743.000 bushels last year. The
amount afloat for Europe Is 1.200,000 bush
els smaller than it was a week ago. Beer
bohm's reported a reduction for the week
In European stocks of 2,031,000, indicating
about 5,000.000 bushels as the total reduc
tion In the world's stocks. The exports of
wheat and flour from Atlantic ports since
Saturday were equal to 340,000 busheis. The
decrease in the visible exceeded expecta
tions and some spring wheut being taken
here for immediate shipment caused a
change In speculative sentiment. The
tendency has been downward during tin;
greater part of the forenoon and short
sellers sold confidently on every raise un
til the matters last referred to brought
support to the bull side strong enough
to turn the bulk of the local crowd from
the bear side. Most of the buying was on
weak spots and enough of it to absorb the
floating scalping supply and turning the
sentiment from selling to buying. Septem
ber, which got down to 69% in about an
hour from the start, recovered to 70%,
dropped again to 69% and once more started
upward, reaching 70%. Cablegrams from
Paris quoting that market excited from
speculation and poor thrashing returns
had some effect in helping the advance In
the latter part of the session. The price
here became still stronger toward the end.
September wheat opened %©% lower at
[email protected]%; sold from 69% to 69%, back to
69%, then up to 71%, closing with sellers at
71%. Corn was moderately active and in
clined to follow tho direction natural to
good reports concerning the progress of
the crop and the Increasing rates. The
market for oats was moderately active
and steady. Only 28,000 head of hogs to
day Instead of 35,000. as estimated, Btarted
provisions strong and the firmness at the
beginning was fairly well maintained In
the face of some quite general selling of
small lots by packers.

Horse Smashes a Wheel
A fractious horse tied in front of the
Wilcox building became frightened yes
terday afternoon and reared. and
plunged Ira the shafts, creating quite a
bit of excitement for the moment. No
damage was done to the rig, but a bicy
cle which had been left standing against
the curb was smashed. Two or three
policemen and the motorman and con
ductor from a passing car hurried to the
rescue ot the wheel, but were too late.
The horse evidently belonged to a very
careful mar», for the animal had been
tied and then the forelegs hobbled, but
this did not prevent it from thrashing
around enough to make it interesting for
thoee who were near.

His Absence May Be for Two Years,
and It May Be Forever.
"Why He Resigned
Dr. J. S. Thomson, the scholarly pas
tor of the Unity church will next Sunday
preach his farewell sermon to the cul
tured flock which has sat under him for
the past four years.
There is to be no hitch in the dissolu
tion of the ties which have bound pas
tor and people in such strong; bonds of
affection this time. But although the
time given Dr. Thomson to recreate was
stated to be for two months, it is an open
but sorrowful secret to many In the con
gregation that it is the doctor's inten
tion to go to Europe and remain for two
years or longer if the Inclination to do so
seizes him.
When the pastor tendered his resigna
tion several weeks ago the congregation
as a whole voted "no" so emphatically
that Dr. Thomson was constrained tore
main, but the elements which caused him
to announce his desire to leave were ac
tive. It seems, and Dr. Thomson again
sought a door through which he might
escape. The idea of asking leave of ab
sence for two years possessed him, and
as the end of the fiscal year drew nigh
the opportune time f»eemed apparent to
all concerned.
Dr. Thomson states that there is eome
slight differences among the members,
merely as to details, however, he admits
that there are about twenty of the
membership who are not in accord
with him in all of his methods. Some,
according to the doctor, wanted more
of what they term "ethical culture" and
others were dissatisfied on the subject of
those popular relaxations, frequently so
popular with congregations, such as ice
cream socials, etc.
Dr. Thomson claims to believe in
amusements, but thinks that they have
their place, just as the church has her
place. On doctrinal matters Dr. Thom
son says that he has been criticised for
preaching "too much Christ," and then
blandly referred the questioner to the
members of the board of trustees,
S. A. Butler, agent of the WeJls-Fargo
company's express, who is a member of
the board of trusees, was also seen by
The Herald yesterday, and frankly ad
mitted the fact of the resignation. Said
"Dr. Thomson has frequently ex
pressed a desure to go east to look after
some- business interests there which de
mand his attention. He is not going
away from us on account of salary, for
we have always paid him more, even,
than he has asked. His going, there
fore, is not a question of dollars end
cents, but from a desire to rest and re
cuperate while superintending other in
"There ls> no trouble in the church
not to speak of, at least —and Lot* An
geles is losing one of the brightest minds,
ever in her midst. As a pulpit orator, ir.
my humble opinion, he was easily the
superior of all the ministers in this lo
cality, and as a pure, honorable, high
minded citizen he was without a peer.
" I consider that the city's loss is great
anid the educational Interests will keen
ly feel his absence."
Thomas Pascoe, secretary of the board
of trustees, was also interviewed on the
subject last night. Mr. Pascoe stated
that Dr. Thomson had not resigned.
"Why, he is Just going off on a little
vacation," said he, when asked for the
facts concerning Dr. Thomson's leaving.
"That vacation may extend to two
years, more or less; I do not know.
"You see, Dr. Thomson's resignation,
presented, a few weeks ago, was not ac
cepted. It was voted down by fully 80
per cent of the congregation, but he
Anally decided to take a vacation. Dr.
Thomson is too broad, or, rather, too
advanced, for many of our old-fashioned
Unitarians, and he has been critised by
several. Those who wanted certain
amusements did not believe in some of
his doctrinal ideas; but those who were
fault-finding along the amusement line
became reconciled after awhile, and
peace prevailed."
Dr. Thomson has been pastor of the
congregation almost seven years, and
his friends are as loyal as his opponents
are bitter. The church will be supplied
with another pastor immediately, as the
American Unitarian association at Bos
ton will be appealed to at once, if it has
not been, apprised of the need ere this.
