Los Angeles, March 18,1898.
"Flattery Is like false money; It Impov
erishes those who receive It."
The advance ln copper since the begin
ning ot the year has been very marked,
and at the present outlook the advance
' appears to be statistically sound. Tbe
strength of the market has come from
Burope, where consumption Is in excess of
arrivals, causing a material reduction of
the visible supply on hand. The advance
, In the price of copper ln New York has de
veloped since February Ist, when the price
of lake Ingots ln that city was 11 cents.
The liberal export call added to a fair local
consumption has forced the market fully
1 cent per pound higher, although large
contracts were made by the producing
companies when tbe market struck lift
Cents. Large sales of copper by leading
producers were reported last week, the
amount being placed at. several million
pounds. The stock of copper in this coun
try at the beginning of the year is not ac-'
eurately known, but the fact that produc
ing companies are now well sold up and
that many will not take bids for prompt or
future delivery would Intimate that these
stocks are not regarded as heavy. The
risumptlon of copper the world over
large, and It seems evident, says Brad
street's, that the present advance ls based
on something more than mere speculation.

A letter written by Mr. Andrew Carnegie
to the Cleveland Iron Trade Bevlew, point
ing out the advantages possessed by New
York as a great shipbuilding center, bas
attracted considerable attention. Mr. Car
negie expresses himself as satisfied that
the United States can readily regain the
supremacy In shipbuilding that It had
when wooden ships were in vogue, and
gives tbe low price of steel in this country,
as compared with Europe, as a principal
reason for this belief. Cheap transporta
tion for shipbuilding material from tbe
Interior of this country and the advantages
which a shipyard at a great port like New
York would have ln the matter of obtain
ing repair work are additional reasons ad
vanced. He makes a suggestion that some
one of tbe successful lake building con
cerns might profitably consider the estab
lishment of a branch yard near New York,
and does not hesitate to say that the
branch would soon grow to exceed the
capacity of the original or parent works,
give a much higher return upon the capital
Invested and render its originator famous

The flgureSJOf the foreign trade of Spain
for last year" says the Pall Mall Gasette,
show an Increase In both imports and ex
ports as compared with the two or three
preceding years, and In exports, at least,
1197 did remarkably well. The value of tbe
latter amounted to nearly 925,000,000 pese
tas (peseta—so,l93), as against 892,333,000 In
1896 697,333,000 ln 1893, 932,500,000 ln 1890, tbe
record year, and 791,200,000 ln 1887. Imports
reached a total ot 793.333,000 pesetas, which
compares with nearly 749,000,000 In the pre
vious year, 768,500,000 In 1895, 901,333,000 ln
1891 (which holds the record In this direc
tion), 897,760,000 In 1890 and 717,500,000 ln 1887.
These totals scarcely bear out the assump
tion that the general volume of trade ls
expanding, for the grand total of Imports
and exports for 1897 ls under that of the
three years 1889-91, Inclusive. But at least
there has been an Improvement ln the ten
years. It must be borne In mind, of course.
In appraising the present condition that
the insurrectionary troubles ln the PhTTIp-
? lines, and especially In Cuba, the ever
althful, have exercised an adverse influ
ence directly and Indirectly on the trade
of the mother country.

A Portland paper says: "The rapidly
Increasing commerce between the Colum
bia river and the Orient has called into
service three additional large steamers.
The first to arrive will be the Mount Tabor,
now en route from Japan to San Francisco,
with a cargo of sulphur, and after dis
charging this she will come to the Colum
bia for a cargo ot flour. About April 16,
the Mount Tabor will be followed by a
second steamship which will take a full
cargo from Portland. The third steamer
Is the Talfu, which is coming from Vladl
vostock to the Pacific Export Lumber com
pany. April will be a heavy month ln ship
ping circles. Negotiations are pending tor
several other steamers to head off the ton
nage now being lost to the Oregon ports for
the lack of a sufficient number of vessels."

Commenting on the rumor that a Japan
ese loan of 160,000,000 yens will be raised in

decided upon it will be floated In Europe.

In Wall Street
NEW YOBK, March 18.—Today's stock
market fluctuated over quite a wide ex
treme, first upwards and then downward
and with a later recovery above the early
high point But it le noticeable that the
net changes were not very large. The ex
treme dullness was a feature. This and
the character ot the rumors which affected
the market Indicated the manipulation of
small professional traders, whose exist
ence depends upon a movement of prices,
whether up or down. The late rally was
tbe feature of the day and was significant
of ths nervous waiting attitude of the
speculative world. This really was founded
on rumors as to what could be taking place
at the secret meeting of the cabinet at
Washington. Compromise with Spain over
Cuba was the burden of this rumor accom
panied by the Information that Spain was
perfectly willing to grant everything on
the sole condition that her flag remains In
Cuba. The professional short sellers Has
tened to cover open contracts on the
strength of this report and another to the
effect that a distinguished officer high ln
rank ln the United States navy had ex
pressed the opinion that the Maine was
lestroyed by an Internal explosion due to
an accident. Business ln the flurry caused
by these rumors was more active than at
any time during the day, but was not on an
unusually large scale, especially consider
ing the wide movement of prices. Nelthei
was the rally held, the reaction touching
practically all stocks and amounting to a
substantial fraction in many cases. As for
the opening spurt, it was largely assisted
by the buoyancy ot the local traction
stocks based on the reported offer of tne
rapid transition to an elevated company.
The heaviness and dullness were without
the slightest Interruption after the open
ing spurt up to the recovery of the last
hour. The relapse in Spanish 4s on tne
London and Paris exchanges was not re
assuring. Notwithstanding yesterday's
night hardening ln the rates of exchange
and the distinctly higher tone ln today's
market, further'gold to the amount of 2900,
--900 was engaged for Import today.
Then bond market showed weakness In
tho early dealings and a firmer tendency at
the close. Total sales 11,300,000.
United States new 4s and the old 4s, cou
pon, were % lower and the old 4s .coupon,

Bradstreet's Report
NEW YORK, March 18.—Bradstreet's
review tomorrow will say:
The aggregate volume of the country
business continues sufficiently large to
Rlow favorable comparisons wltb past
periods alike In this and preceding years.
Aside from a quieting demand at a few
leading eastern markets, where uncertain
ty as to the outcome of foreign complica
tions is advanced at a reason for unwilling
ness to embark In new business, the.situa
tlon Is one possessing nearly all of the fa
vorable features noted for some time past,

the northwest. Favorable weather has

large, but without effect on prices, which

vorable features of the country's general
trade situation are summed up ln liberal
shipments of leading cereals, unpreoe
lented totals of. exports at New York,
Fewer business failures and slightly larger

ularly during the week. The question of

Little encouragement appears In the
market for cotton goods, with print cloths
a sixteenth lower than a week ago, and
standard grades undersold by many of less
note. The demand is large, but not large
enough. In woolen goods, on the contrary,

Prices mad Prospects of ths Trade In
CHICAGO, March 18.—Wheat started
firm, July, Xc higher, at 85H@8Stt, and May
Xc higher, at 1.04*4. It was raining through
out the west, In Itself a depressing feature,
but freeslng weather was reported In tne
nortbwest and this caused a good deal of
apprehension that the frost line might ex
tend over the water-soaked winter wheat
fields. Possible damage from this source
did not at first result in a groat Increase In
the buying demand, but It stopped the sell
ing pressure and shorts anxious to cover
found it necessary to advance their bids
materially before securing the desired
wheat. In the first forty-five minutes trad
ing in July was advanced to 86%. Then rea
alfslng by scalpers caused a reaction to 85*»,
where tbe market hung for a abort time.
After that the market gradually became
stronger and trade broadened out consid
erably. Later advices from Liverpool
showed sharp advances both In oash and
the deferred futures.
California sent quite gloomy crop reports,
predictions belngma«e that the crop would
not exceed *.000,«0 bushels.. That this re
port was taken seriously ln California was
evidenced by the number of covering orders

California shorts were especially good buy

One Died in a Hospital and the Parents
of the Other Mourned
The Islington child mystery Into which
the metropolitan asylum boar>d ls now
holding an inquiry is a real tragedy ln hum
ble life. Two mothers, unacquainted with
aach other, sent two little boys to the
fever hospital, at Haverstockhlll. Ons
mother after a while was told that her
boy had died and the other was requested to
fetch home her child, who had recovered.
The mother who went to the hospital on
the joyful errand was horrified to find that
the child offered to her was not hers. It
then turned out that owing to a most griev
ous and lamentable mistake the children
had been wrongly entered ln the hospi
tal books. The one who was reported con
valescent really belonged to the parents
who were mourning his loss, and who had
actually, as they supposed, followed him to
the grave The curious thing is that these
parents had actually seen their child, as
they supposed, dying In the hospital and
had never questioned his identity.—London
Tbe Belgian government Is contemplat

gle-rail between Brussels and Antwerp. It
is expected that a speed of abount ninety
