The industrial uses of aluminum are ex
tending every day, owing to the decrease 1
in Its cost and the discoveries made as to
the availability of the? metal for commer
ctel purposes. The clay from which It is
extracted' is found In large quantities ln
the Var and lower Alps. The raw material
Is not wanting, but It Is only lately that
the manufacture has been made profitable (
through the Important discoveries of the
chemist, Molssan. One of the greatest ob- i
stacles to the manufacture of aluminum
into articles of every day use Is the Im- !
possibility of welding the metal. This dlf
'. nlculty has not yet been solved. Canteens 1
I, with neck holding one and two quarts are j
made by a process of feruling without
Welding. The price of aluminum has b,een ;
(reduced from 1000 francs (8193) to 500 francs |
1896.60), then successively to 300 francs I
H57.90), 60francs (89.65), 10francs ($1.93), and .
flpally 8 francS (57 cents) per kilogram -
(2)2046 pounds). The price will be still lower
when there Is more competition. '
According to an article In the New i
York, Herald, the annual report of :
the treasurer of Columbia univer- 1
slty shows that, with all Its realty,
cash, bonds and mortgages, amount
ing to 829,000,000, It lost last year $34,092, or
about 820 for each student. The-statement
discloses that ln the medical department
it cost more than double the fees to edu- i
cate each student. From this It is learned
that a university, like a business man,
must work hard to make ends meet, and all
that comes ln is not profit. ]
Bradford, England, manufacturers are <
reported seeking to retain the American <
market, despite the McKlnley bill, by pro- j
duclng and exporting to the United States J
cotton goods made to appear as If made of >
wool or silk. These goods, which are ex- >]
cellently made, bo as to defy the scrutiny <
of ail but experts, are sold at prices far t
below those of the genuine goods. Manu- j
facturers are planning to export them In
large quantities. Intelligence of this char- !
acter would no doubt lead the uninitiated .
to believe that something startling was i
about to be performed by the Bradford t
manufacturers. As a matter of fact, goods I
similar ln character to those referred to ln '
the foregoing have been made, according ]
to the Dry Goods Record, and are being ,
manufactured ln Massachusetts dally,
The production of diamonds in South j
Africa ln 1897 has been reported to "The (
Mineral Industry" as follows: ,
Karats Value ,
Cape Colony 3,220,368 £4,024,040 ,
Orange Free State 260,000 400,000 i
Totals 3,470,468 £4,424,040 '
The output from Cape Colony Is from the 1
Deßeers and Klmberly mines, both be- 1
longing to the Deßeers company. The to- J
tal value of $21,630,338 represents practically j
the production of the world In 1897 of dla- r
■nonds used as gems, the quantity found t
outside of South Africa being very email, a
The only production of Brazil at present Is c
In the form of the black diamonds used tor J
drills and other Industrial purposes.

Fifty carloads of rails, to be used ln con- J
structlng the first railroad to the Klondike {
gold fllelds, have been shipped from the j
Bay View mills of the Illinois Steel com- (
pany. These rails constitute the first con- |
etgnment forwarded to fill a large order t
given by the builders of the Klondike line. I
Other shipments will be made as fast as <
the steel can be rolled. McKensle, Mann '
ft Co., who have a concession from the ,
Canadian government permitting them to (
build this railroad, are the consignees of t
the rails. The rails weigh forty-five pounds i

That some Germans are beginning to <
count the cost of retaliation upon the t
United States for its recent tariff .enact- l
tnents seems evident from protests which <
German wine trade papers are making f
against increased import duties on Ameri
can lines. The Deutsche Wlen-Zeltung s
published at Mainz, on the Rhine, in a re- i
cent article opposing increased import dv- 1
ties, as proposed by the Union of Agrlcul- I
turlsts, points out, says Bradstreet's, the
disparity between the volume of German
import trade In American wine and the ex
port trade In German wine to this country.
According to that authority, the total Ger- {
man Import of American wines ln 1897 was '
only 5,837 double hundredweights, whereas 1
there was exported from Germany to this ,
country 50,400 double hundredweights. '
These data, as the Wlen-Zeltung very J
Xroperly observes, show that the Import of J
.merlcan wines Is not of very much lm- ■
portance to the Germans, and that there J
Is no reason to Jeopardize the export of J
German wine to America by agitation or '
lew. The Wlen-Zeltung takes above stand ;
while at the same time combating the Idea '
common among some American papers that
American wines are necessary to German ]
wine makers for blending purposes. It *.
States that the quality of the German 1
wines exported to America would not ad
mit of any cutting, because the higher per- 1
centage of alcohol contained ln American
wines would mar the quality of the Ger
man brands. <

Senor Roman Orlol, ln the "Revlsta 1
Mlnera," estimates the production of coal
in Spain as follows, In metric tons: 1
1896. 1897. ]
Coal 1,852,947 1,883,500 J
Lignite 66,413 65,900 J
Total 1,908,360 1,819,400 1
This shows a total Increase of 31.040 tons.
The chief production was from the mines 1
of the-Asturlas, which turned out 1,188,000 1
tons of coal in 1897. 1
Imperishable Terra Cotta
In the new Examiner building, Third and ]
Market streets, San Francisco, Is exhibited ,
a new departure In architectural con
structlon In that city in the use of terra
cotta. Those potsherds outlast Time Itself. ,
Burned cloy Is the most Indestructible ma
terial known to man. Fire cannot harm it
nor water cause it to decay; nor frost nor
sun nor the passing seasons of endless ages
so much as soil Its Immutable surface. The
oldest monuments of human handiwork ln
existence are prehistorlo bits of baked clay
and remnants of pottery, and the most an- I
olent ot human records are the tile tablets '
found ln the burled cities of the Orient.
These Imperishable memorials are virtual
ly terra cotta. This substance, formed into 1
architectural ornaments, is found in tne .
ruins of forgotten capitals bearing the 1
Stamp of the artist, the artisan, and the
scribe who perished uncounted centuries
•go. Terra cotta is known to the architects
as well as to the archaeologists as the most
durable of materials known by man, and ,

Conditions as Shown by Transactions
on Wall Street
NEW YORK, March 31.—There were ,
rather mysterious undercurrents all day in
the stock market, which nothing In the
f ubllc news served to explain and which
he gossip ln Wall street found numerous
and contradictory explanations. The open
ing slump in which losses ranged from 1 to
2 points and upwards seemed to be In sym- ,
pathy with an earlier decline In London.
The more as the selling of Americans In ,
•London was said to be for New York ac
count of operators who were too eager to .
take their profits in yesterday's rise to wait j
for the opening In New York. But the open- ,
Ing prices here proved to be the lowest for
the time being and there was an eager de
mand immediately manifested for stocks !
all through the list. This demand contln- .
ued with only short periods of Cessation \
through the morning session and rallied
prices almost or quite to last night's clos
ing level. The natural Inference from this
would be that If the earlier selling in Lon- ,
don was for New York account, it was for '
manipulative purposes. The strength In
the New York market fo.und a response In ,
a rally on the foreign exchanges ln the
prices of securities and also of Spanish se
curities, which were also repressed early ln \
the day on pessimistic reports from Mad
rid. The latter portion of the day saw a
persistent decline in prices in New York,
with only occasional periods of steadiness, ,
most stocks falling below the opening
prices and closing at or near the lowest.
The appropriation by the New York legis- !
lature of 31,000,000 for emergency funds for
defense, was the nominal move of the lat
ter decline. Nearly all of the whole day's
business was done at prices below last
night's level, and although the net changes
are all on the side of losses, extending be
tween one and two points for most stocks
and over that in special cases, It was very
obvious that a large and rather eager de
mand for stocks was satisfactory during 1
the day and it was the prevailing impres
sion In the street that the opening decline
was manipulated to give opportunity to
satisfy this demand. Aside from the bull
ish sentiment created among the room
traders by this undertone of strength and
the belief that the demand for stocks was
due to some hidden motive or undisclosed
ih« TXl ,o ,?i r ,lft? rd i n t Sp*!n's Intentions,
the general outlook'wwars r not considered
promising. The money market reflected 1
the uncertainty In the outlook more accur
ately than did the stock market. Lenders
are holding out for stiff rates for time
money and borrowers are not disposed to
pay the rates asked, as It is certain that
any prospect of peace would immediately
result In an abundance of money. The gen
eral neglect of the time money market and
the desire of borrowers to call loans re
sulted In a stiffening of rates today. The :
exchange market was dull and neglected,
the further Importation of gold being
largely dependent on the outcome of the
controversy between the United States and
The bond market was less active than
stocks and prioes showed a tendency to ,

London Markets
NEW YORK, March 31.—The Evening
Post's London financial cablegram says:
The stock markets were unsettled today,
prices sec-sawing within wide limits all
day. A feature was the sharp drop In
Spanish 4s from 54 to 51%, due entirely to
the large block of stock hanging over the
market for immediate delivery. Closed at
51%. Americans were good and closed
strong but there Is a disposition to check
all dealings pending political developments.
It Is believed that unsettled politics will
prohibit the closing of the stock exchange
on Eeaster Saturday.
More gold will probably leave the Bank
of England for New York tomorrow, 130,000
pounds in Japanese yen were ln the open
market for export to New York.

pounds from Austria and 10,000 pounds
from China.

CHICAGO, March 31.—Wheat opened
about %c lower for July, Initial trades
being made at 81% to 81%. The magnificent
prospects for the winter wheat crop ln
Kansas and favorable reports from other
winter wheat growing states was the chief
cause for the opening weakness. Some sec
tions reported an increase ln area of 20 per
cent. The early drop ln Wall street prices
also acted as a disturbing Influence.
Prices soon recovered, however. Liver
pool and Paris markets both showed stead
iness and stocks showed an early recovery
giving rise to the belief that operators were
In possession of favorable Information con
cerning the outlook bf a settlement of the
Cuban question. The bulls also derived
comfort from the falling off ln northwest
receipts, Minneapolis and Duluth reported
220 cars against 324 last week and 587 a year
ago. Though this did not result ln much

Will Not Grow Near the Ocean or in ,
Certain Regions i
A preliminary report upon, the soils of the i
principal tobacco districts ln the United 1
States has been prepared by the depart- <
ment of agriculture under the direction of '
the secretary. 1
A glance at a table giving changes in the
production of tobacco from 1879 to 1889
chows that in this period of ten years'the
acreage and yield of the cigar tobaccos
have been, very considerably Increased. ;
The manufacturing and export districts
cannot be sharply separated, as both kinds
of tobacco are frequently grown ln the
same district and the same kind is fre- '
fluently used for both purposes. On the '
whole, there has been a considerable de
crease in the acreage and yield. With the
bright yellow and burley tobaccos there
has been a large increase ln both acreage 1
and) yield.. Since 1889 there has been con- '
slderable change In many of these districts,
while other new districts, notably Texas 1
and California, are coming into consldlera- '
bte promdnenoe, both as to the area under
cultivation and the excellent quality of
the product raised. The acreage ln Flori
da has also been very greatly Increased
since 1889, but there are no reliable sta
tistics to show the extent of the changes ln !
the counties making up the tofoacco dis
Some attention Is devoted to the question
of meteorological conditions as affecting
the Industry in the great tobacco regions
in this country, Cuba andl Sumatra. "The
plant," the report continues, "is far more
sensitive to these meteorological conditions
than are our Instruments. Even In such a .
famous tobacco region as Cuba tobacco of
good quality cannot be grownin the imme
diate vicinity of the ocean or ln certain
parts of the island, even on what would
otherwise be considered good tobacco
lands. This has been the experience also ln
Sumatra and ln our own country, but the
influences are too subtle to be detected by
our meteorological Instruments."
The remainder of the report is devoted
mainly to a description of the dttfferent
classes of tobacco lands found ln the
United States, together with data as. to the
yield peracre, whether used as wrapper or
filler, the value of the tobacco produced
and valuable suggestions' for obtaining the
best results.—Washington Star.

Napoleon's Inability to Guide a Flow
Told at Elba
A certain incident connected with the
great Napoleon while he was ln exile In
Elba Is commemorated in the island l to this
hour by an Inscription affixed) to the wall of
a peasant's house.
A man named Glaconl was plowing when
the famous exile came along one day and
expressed an interest in his work. Napo
leon even took the plowshare out of the
man's hand and attempted to guide tt him
self. But the oxen refused to obey him,
overturned the plow andi spoiled the fur
row. Tbe inscription runs thus:
"Napoleon the Great, passing by this
place In MDCCCXIV. took In the neighbor
ing field a plowshare from the hands of a
peasant and himself tried to plow, but the
oxen, rebellious to those hands which yet
had guided Europe, headlong fled from the
Chinese City Still Guarded by Men
With Bows and Arrows
It is perhaps not generally known that
the defense of Pekin le. still largely intrust
ed to men armed only with bows and ar
rows. A recent Imperial decree solemnly
directs that those who "succeed in hitting
the target with their arrows on horseback
and four times on foot only shall be pro
portionately recompensed. The decree
concludes with a list of the presidents and
tallylsts appointed for archery competi
tions which are still to take place.—New
York Tribune.
Depression of Trade ln Paris Caused
by tbe Dreyfus Excitement
Some idea of the depression in trade
caused in Parts by the excitement over the
Zola trial may be gained'from the fact that
Duval's homely restaurants showed a fall
ing off in their receipts of 110,000 ln six
weeks. The slaughter house returns showed
a decrease of 50 per cent. Hotels, cab com
panies and many theaters suffered. Co
quelin at the Porte St. Martin didi not fare
so badly. In the first fortnight of Febru
ary the theater took ln $33,300.
All prices of wall paper greatly reduced.

was also a wonder. I did not know it was out until it was all over. E. W. MANSFIELD,
