Los Angeles, July 20.
The New York Financier in Its last Issue
takes the following view of the situation,
which is instructive as representing the
prevailing feeling in financial quarters of
the metropolis: Despite the heavy Increase
of $11,000,000 In loans, and a reduction of
over $7,000,000 of the cash reservo of the
banks last wee k, money rates have shown
no advance, iind with the completion of the
July settlements, the market ha» resumed
Its old time ease. A cash reserve of over
$40,000,000, coupled with the fact that In
terior banks are loaded up with funds,
does not confirm the probability of an
early advance, although In this connection
It Is Interesting to note that money is so
placed that it would require but little mo
mentum to bring about a firmer condition.
The fact that the loans of the New York
banks are the highest on record Is proof
positive that a great deal of business Is
doing, and the broadening tendency of In
vestment buying Is a most healthy sign.
Municipal bond sales for the month of June
were In excess of sixteen million dollars,
and several millions additional were loaned
temporarily to cities in anticipation of
taxes. The Northwest refunding plan
will require an immense amount of money
this fall, and the Metropolitan Traction
Company is arranging for a $12,500,000 loan,
which will be consummated within the
next few days. This is' the season when
country balances generally diminish and
rediscounts begin. In 1885 this movement
was a feature of the season, and there is
no reason why a similar change should
not now begin. It must be said, however,
that the movement this way more than
counteracts the outward shipment of cur
rency. Money has been going principally
to the southern states- is response to re
discounts. It is said that one bank in; New
York Is carrying nearly or quite $20,000,
--000 on call, and that foreign lendlngsat this
center have been considerable. The largest
amounts of idle money are owned by cor
porations. On call, funds have been freely
placed at from 1 to 1% per cent at the
Block Exchange with a maximum figure of
1 per cent for outside business. Time
money is inactive, with quotations at 2
per cent for 30 to 60 days, 2% per cent for
(0 days and 3 per cent for longer periods.
Government bond collateral brings a shad
ing from the above rates. Commercial
paper Is more active, with the appearance
of a great deal of jobbing paper in the
market. Quoted rates are 3 and 3% per cent
for best double names, 314 and 3% for single
names ot the highest grade, and 4 and 5 per
cent for paper less well known,

The London Dally Financial News says:
"A new era has been discovered for coffee
planting. Hawaii—which, by the way. has
now practically been annexed by the United
States—ls found to be well adapted for this
purpose, and numerous patches of wild
coffee trees are to be found throughout the
group of Islands. Mr. Hawes, our consul
general at Hawaii, says that the cultiva
tion of coffee has progressed greatly during
the past five years, and thinks that it will
untlmately be placed on asound and profit
able footing. At present the position is very
similar to that of Ceylon In the early days,
when plantations were commenced In un
suitable places, and much money was lost
before planting began te be successful. Mr.
Hawes very properly Impresses catition on
young Englishmen with capital who (nay
think of trying their fortunes in Hawaii.
At present such enterprises would be ex
tremely risky, but when experience has
shown what districts are suitable for the
purpose, then will be the proper time to
make the venture."

The production of aluminium In the
United States during the year 1896 was
1,100,000 pounds, as against 900,000 pounds
in 1895, showing a gain of 400,000 pounds,
or 41 per cent. As has been the case for sev
eral years past, the entire domestic out
put came from a single producer, the Pitts
burg Reduction Company, the plant of
which at Niagara Falls has been enlarged
and has been working at nearly full ca
pacity. It is interesting to note in this
connection that the United States has up
the present time produced more than one
third of all the aluminium manufactured
In the world, The principal European pro
ducer Is the Aluminium Industrie Gesell
schaft, with works at Neuhausen, Switzer
land, and controlling the Soclete Electro-
Metallurglque de France, with works at
Froges in France.

The Journal of Commerce says: "Thefire
loss ot the United States and Canada for
the month of June, as compiled from our
daily records, shows a total of $5,684,450: a

1896, figures, which were gratifyingly low.

The City Council of Helena, Mont., pro
proposes to furnish at Its own expense a
new object lesson for the benefit of invest
ors in bonds. The council refused a short
time ago to issue a bond payable in gold
to take up the outstanding legal warrant
Indebtedness, which establishes a prece
dent that will be watched with Interest.
As far as known, none of the cities and
towns and counties and districts of the
stale has taken th» position recently as
sumed by Helena, although Montana is one
of the leading silver states of the union.
At -n meeting of the council on June 22d.
ut which the subject was discussed, three
variously worded propositions for Issuing
bonds payable in sold or either in gold or
its equivalent, were voted down promptly,
and It Is proposed to try the experiment af
Offering an issue payable In lawful money
of the United States.

The London Economist has taken occa
sion to make some interesting investiga
tions as to the extent of Barnato's opera
tions and the losses which their declines
represent. It, of course, takes no account
ot his early ventures In diamonds and dia
mond mines, which, indeed, were mainly
conducted as private enterprises, and It
should be noted that his remarkable suc
cese In this connection was what In, all
probability induced him to make dubious
financial experiments with disastrous re
sults, and at tho same time gave the public
an exaggerated opinion of his sagacity.
Excluding, also, some minor corporations
of the geld mining or promoting class, the
paper in question figures out that during
years In which he held his title of "King
of the Kaffirs," he floated compandesof the
kind Just referred to with an aggregate
capital of £7,803.000, or say $39,000,000.

In the course of an article on the Ameri
can wire trade, the Pittsburg Dispatch as
sorts that there Is a movement on foot
annong German wire manufacurersi to drive
tho American out of the wire market. In
order that this may be accomplished the
manufacturers of the Rhenish provinces
are said to bo raising funds for export
bounties, and are otherwise strengthening
themselves for a big fight. Export boun
ties are to be paid out of this fund on all
shipments to foreign countries. The maxi
mum tonnage thus -subsidized has been
placed at 30,000 tons.

A Mobile, Ala., man claims to have dis
covered a process whereby steel can be
made without the admixture of Cuban
magnetic ore or the use of expensive ma
chinery. In support of his claim he has
exhibited a block of steel made by his
process from red hematite ore from- the
Birmingham district ot Alabama. It is said
this steel was made at one run, avoiding
the costly and laborious processes hereto

What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
NEW YORK, July 20.—The stock market,
after considerable early activity and
strength, closed l firm below the best prices,
but at fractional net gains. The strength
in sugar, lead and tobacco was in antici
pation of benefits to be derived from the
new tariff. The sugar company having se
cured a most acceptable schedule passed
both the house and presented to the Sen
ate, failed to justify the fears of a sensa
tional break entertained by some traders
after yesterday's eight points advance and
on the contrary opened up 1% per cent.
Subsequently It scored' an extreme gain for
the day of 4%. establishing a new record of
146%, and thereafter gradually declining,
closed with a set gain of 2%. Lead, com
mon and preferred, scored an extreme rise
of 2 per cent on enormous dealings, com
mon, however, later lost half of Its gains.
Generally speaking the Industrials w-ere
firm in the winding up of the revision of the
tariff. Grangers slid off somewhat on profit
takln, but the list entirely disregarded Lon
don's changed attitude In selling Ameri
cans. Generally speaking fractional re
cessions followed the noon hour on suc
cessful traders, converting profits into bank
deposits. Prices were from time to time
marked upward, but the tendency to ad
vance was checked by threatened Demo
cratic opposition to a prompt conclusion
on the tariff bill and no rumors of the possi
bility of the export of gold, due to the
largo ants tariff bill Importations, espec
ially of sugar, and to discharge obligations
due Europe for returned American securi
ties. The reported enormous decrease in
the world's visible supply and the conse
quent rise In wheat before the close In
fluenced a rally as It would mean Increased
demand for our grain, and Indeed the large
increase of exports for general merchan
dise for the week shows the present de
mand for our product. The bond market
continued to advance toward a high level
on purchases which Included a moderate
sprinkling of the gilt-edged Issues. The
Inquiry for continental account was mainly
centered In the speculative metlngs with
changes mainly narrow. The aggregate
sales were 2,500,000. Governments were
pressed for sale and yielded a fraction on
sales of $10,000.

NEW YORK, July 20.—The Evening
Post's London financial cablegram says:
The stock markets were stagnant today.
The only semblance of business was in
Americans and this was only trifling. Now
that the conference committee has agreed
upon the tariff bill It Is felt that the only
bull point for the moment In Americans Is
President McKinley's promised currency
message and It Is feared that unless that
be couched In strong and unmistakable
terms it may not prove so great an im
petus as is to be desired. Atchison adjust
ments are being bought here. Foreign
stocks were flat and the Paris and Berlin
markets were quiet.

F H J C .. Q0 V July strength with
which the whoat market closed yesterday
was renewed at the opening today with %
OH advance in price. September started
with buyers at from 71%@71%, and some
few paid ,1% about the same time. Realiz
ing sales depressed it for a few minutes
to il%, but those offerings absorbed, the
price took a higher flight, and gave those
who wished to do so an opportunity to
realize 72 for their September wheat. A
number took advantage of that chance,
and had another opening to replace at 71%.
The foreign markets continued to be the
source of bull inspection. Liverpool was
1% higher than It closed yesterday when
first heard of, and later quotations showed
a further gain;, making the total rise 2%d.

cy this year compared with last in ihe
Hungarian wheat crop would amount to
36,000,000 bushels. A cablegram from Ant
werp said reports of wheat In Central
Russia, and Donublan states were dally

amounted to within 10,000 bushels of a total
of 800.000 bushels, the greater part No. 2
Kansas hard and chiefly for the first half
of August shipment. The market was ex
tremely regular until the Important sale
for foreign shipment. The price was hang
ing around 71% when the 800.000 bushel ex
port sale became generally known, and
after that there was only one desire in the
crowd, and that was to secure some wheat.

Boston Wool Market
BOSTON, July 20.—W00l dealers report a
fair business doing Just now. Buyers are
encouraged by the strong outside condi
tions, which Indicate that many are willing
to take chances of being able to make a
,urn at an advance later. This keeps an
active market without materially reducing
the stocks at hand, although manufac
turers are occasionally coming In and
picking up some supplies. The general
business of the week shows the largest
trading In Australian wools, and the
scoured prloe was worked up several cents
higher. For the best wools the range of
sales is at 50055 cents, with the range down
us to quality. The business datngla largely
In good-slied blocks-, there being, but little
call for consumptive purposes, except In
cross breds. Manufacturers are bidding
on these grades, as th<3 supply available
is light. In domestic Wools- some lines of
territories are being picked up, but the
price bid, compared with the cost to re
place them, Bhowß a wide difference to
make such transactions popular. Quota

Southern California
Following Is the United Slates depart
ment of agriculture's climate and crop
bulletin of the weather bureau for South
ern California for the week ending Mon
day, July 19th: ..• • .-• : .
The warmest weather which has oc
curred so far this season prevailed during
the past week, though the temperature de
creased materially towards the close and
morning fogs were frequent in the coast
districts. The clear, warm weather rip'ehed
apricots rapidly, too fast. In fact, in some
sections, owing to lack of help to enable
orchard lsts to handle the fruit to advan
tage. Drying proceeded expeditiously, and
the season Is practically drawing to a close.
Corn and beans are generally In excellent
condition, though reported to be some
what affected by the hot winds of the
week. Harvesting continues in the Ante
lope valley, and wheat is turning out bet
ter than expected. A light shower fell at
Crafton on the 13th, and a thunder storm
occurred In the Antelope valley last Mon
The weekly report shows that the weath
er conditions were favorable. The highest
temperature was 89 degrees an,d the lowest
49 degrees.

apricots ripened fast, but fogs prevailed the
latter part of the week. Corn and beans
are in excellent condition and prospects
good. Orange trees are very well set with
young fruit. : "
West Satlcoy—The clear hot days of the
past week were good for fruit drylng.which
progressed rapidly, but beans were some
what damaged by the heat.,
Los Angeles City—The warmest weather
of the season occurred the past week,
when the temperature ranged daily from,
two to seven degress In excess of the nor
mal. The latter part of the week was
slightly cooler, with heavy morning fogs.
Fruit ripened rapidly and the local mar
kets are plentifully supplied with all va
rieties. Highest temperature, 86 degrees;
lowest, 54 degrees.
Fairmont—The weather was extremely
warm the first part of the week, but it was
cool the latter part. Apricot drying con
tinues, also harvesting and hay baling. The
wheat crop is better than expected. Early
peaches are ripe, with prospects ot a large
Vcrdugo—Dryers are running on apricots,
which are small, but a heavy crop. The
water supply 1b reported decreasing, but
as yet all crops and trees are looking
Pomona— Apricot drying is approaching
the end; Royals are about all dried, and
but a small quantity of Moorparks re
main to be cured.
Downey—Alfalfa hay cutting continues.
Large purple flgs are now ripe. The first
crop of white Smyrna figs are gone. Apri
cots, early apples, peaches and plums are
ripe! There are no prunes to speak of.
Green corn and early varieties of vegeta
bles are in market. The sugar beet har
vest has Just commenced. Tobacco grow
ers are cutting their first crop. Walnuts
are looking well, but the crop will be light.
Corn fields are looking well, There are
very few Bartlett pears this Sanson.
Ontario—The warm weather of the past
week was very favorable for apricot dry
ing and the absence of fogs was a great
advantage to the fruit dryers.
Crafton—Work in the orange orchards is
well forward and Ihe prospects are good
for a large crop. A trace of rain fell on
the ISth. The highest temperature was 9»
degrees; lowest, 4S degrees.
Elslnore—The hot weather of the past
week has hastened the ripenfllfj bf 'apricots.
and all thSAVaHable help In the community
has been employed and many more could
have been utilized, as the fruit ripened so
fast. The highest temperature was 10S de
g-ees; the lowest was 5S degrees.
Armada—The intense heat of the past
few days has brought on the apricot crop
fast, and there Is considerable worry over
the lack of sufficient facilities for the ripe
fruit, — '
San Diego City—The weather during the
past week was from two to three degrees
warmer than normal and fruit ripened
very fast. In some instance* fruit ripeped
so fast as to preclude the •possibility of
saving It. All fruit prospects are good;
and other crops are yielding better than for
many seasons. Highest temperature, 80
degrees; lowest. 60 degrees.
San Marcos— Harvesting Is over, except
some stocking yet to-he done. There will
be less hay this season on account of the
large quantity of the crop being cut for
Santa Ana—The fore part of the week,
both the days and the. nights, were un
usually warm; the latter part was more
pleasant, with cool nights. The weather
was favorable for apricot drying. Barley
threshing is progressing and the yield Is
