CHEAP GOODS HIGH WAGES. The coat of labor, on these isl ands, is a matter on which every planter and business man steadily keep3 hi3 eye. Wo have, in our columns, made eoine analysis of the real cost and value of it. The followine extract from the financial columns of the Outlook confirms our views. A correspond up to the moment, cannot be clearly foreseen, must furnish the outlet for all this unused and unpro ductive capital. Bradstreet. Nothing indicates eo clearly the stagnation of business, aG the amount of capital lying idle. Spe culators have no use for it, and capitalists will not lend money ex cepting on the very beet securities. One sees that the rate of interest in the cities is only two per cent., and wonders why he cannot bor row, when he is willing to pay seven per cent., or more. The rea son is, that in dull times, the capi talist U afraid of the security of fered, and prefers to take two per cent., without running any risks. 1 Wonderfu )iscovorv. i vrmmi AlUlMl a PETROLEUM EMULSION Jimly 3opie5 Mk.

The editor replies : As Western civilization spreads in India anil Janan. these countries will doubtless manufacture more and more. Himultaneously, however, the wages paid to their workmen will rise, and not until their industrial civilization is such that their work men are able to earn European wages can tbev hope to compete in the Kuropean markets. It is a principle of universal application that trie countries where wages are lowest are the countries whicu most largely im port manufactures and export raw materials.

The reason why our manufacturers welcomed the policy of reciprocity with Spanish America was because they knew that In manufactures we could undersell the Spanish-Ameri cans in their own market, despite the fact that wages here are three times as creat as waees there.

If the United States govern ment should place no obstacles in the way of the cable scheme from Vancouver to the Colo nies via Honolulu, Hawaii nei will, within the next two years take on a new lease of life. Instead of a couple of third rate steamers on the Canadian line, there will be five of the first-class. Emigrants will learn more about our country and the lands will be settled by the small farmer. Houchins Water Filters at a dollar apiece will be in demand by thousands instead of hundreds as it is today. The islands will be joined by a local cable line and the country in general will be in the swim instead of the soup. The advent of a cable will bring to our shores men with progressive ideas, men who by their acts will better themselves, at the same time improve the condition of the country.

As compared with this time a year ago, the Bank of England, for instance, holds specie to the amount of about $ 6o,000,(K) more than was in its vaults at this time last year. The reserves of the Bank of France are some $40,000,000 larger than In the autumu of 1S93, and the increase in the holdings of the German Iteichsbank are but little under that amount.
