f For tbe
American f
increase In Exports
The protective tariff has not check
ed tbe volume of our exports, aa tbe
following figures show:
Yearly average '93 to '96.8149 000,000
Yearly average '97 to '!)9.. 484,768.000
Per Capita Circulation.
On July 1. 1896, under tbe last dem
ocratic administration, tbe per capita
of money In circulation In tbe United
States wa $21.10. Tbls yer, on June
1, it was $26.71 per capita, an in
crease of $5.61 for every inhabitant in
tbe country.
Money In Circulation.
" -Note the following figures of money
in circu'atlon in tbe United States:
June 1. 1900. July 1, 1896.
$2.074. 637,871 $1,506,434,966
The republican increase in four years
wai $568 252,905.
Commercial Expansion.
Our national prosperity is becoming
more and more dependent upon a
steady and large increase in our ex
ports. This suggests that our conti
nued dependence upon foreign ships
for 90 per cent of our foreign carrying
Is a great national danger.
A Contrast
With en available cash balance or
almost three hundred million dollars
($300,000,000) in the Treasury at Was
hington, the nation's finances are in
considerably better shape than they
were when Grover Cleveland and
Secretary Carlisle were bunting
around to Bell United States bonds in
the London market at high rates on
Where tbe Farmer Comes In
Idaho fruit sold at the Chicago
market in 1896 for just enough money
to pay the freight. This year it has
been sold at $1.00 per crate of twenty
five pounds, the freight being $1.00
per 100 pounds. Hay sold in Idaho at
$2.50 per ton In 1896. Tbis year it has
eold at $5 per ton. Hogs sold there
for 3 centd per pound in 1896. Within
the last few months similar hogs have
Bold for 4 cents per pound.
The Tin Plate Industry.
Slnoe the establishment of tin
plate industry in tbe United States,
there has been saved to this country
upwards of $100,000,000. We used to
import Welsh tin plate, made by the
Welsh trust, to tbe value of $20,000,000
a year. Tbe Welsh tin plate trust is
not subject to our laws, and pays noth
ing in tne way of taxation toward tbe
United Slates treasury. Still tbe
democratic party fought tooth and nail
against takirg -away the trade from
tbem and giving it to American
6ilt Edoed American Credit.
Money In the United States Is
cheaper than anywhere else in tbe
world. At tbe market price in April,
the average earnings for our 4 per
cent boods of 1925 were 2 244 per cent;
fortbe4'sof 1907 tbe earnings were
1.857 per cent: for tbe 3's, 1.H8 per
cent: for the o'a, 1.4o2 per oent.
German 3i per cents told at 9GJ to 97,
and German 3's at 86 at 86, ej that
their earnings to tbe buyer were
more than tee interest stated. Tbe
premium on British consols is about 1
per cent, ana their earnings vary a
little above tha face Interest.
Movement Of Gold.
The followlogetatement of the move
ment of gold to and from the U oiled
States is interesting:
Calendar Excess of
Year. Export. Imcorts. Exports
1894 $101,978,689 $21,350,607 $80,628,082

McKinley Exoesa of Im
ports, two years $141,703,309
Difference between tbe
two administrations $292,902,401
West Virginia's Prosperity
West Virginia's cealoutput Increased
from 11,400,000 tons in 1895 to 18,750,
000 tons last year, giving employment
to nearly 11,000 more men, who worked
every day in that year, instead of 195
days in 1895. The bank deposits In
that state have doubled witbin the
same period. Trade failures have de
creased by two-thirds. The value of
the sheep Las Increased by 50 per cent,
while the price of tbe wool has doubled.
Tobacco is worth considerably more
money now than under tho last demo
cratic administration. The lumbar
mills and factories are running full
time, and it is safe tD predict that
West Virginia will Btay in the republi
can column.
What Prosperity Means.
The Washington Post, in an able
editorial, contrasts the surplus of three
hundred million dollars in the United
States Treasury at the present time,
with the balance four years ago which
was the result of bond Issues in a time
Of peace. It also shows that notwith
standing the heavy war expenses that
have been, and are being incurred,
the surplus for this fiscal year will
amount to about $65,000,000 as compar
ed wi'.h tbe deficit of nearly $30,000,000
four years ago. It 1b pointed out that
this is not tbe result of the war taxes
alone, because, comparing the month
of May tbis year with May, 1896, there
was an increase of almost $6,500,000
tbis year in receipts from customs in
tbat month alone.
What Our Islands Are Worth
The people of the United States are
paying $1,000,000 a day for tropical
products used in American manufact
ures, or for food and drink. Most of
the articles can be produced in a more
or leas degree Is the islands which
have recently come Into closer rela-
tlnnnhin with the Uc!tod States
These articles comprise sugar, coffee
silk, rubber, fibres, fruit and nuts
tnhiu-M. tea. cotton, gum", cocoa,
pices, rice, cabinet and dye woods,
liquorice root, lndlgo.cork wood, ivory
BDonpes. etc. as our leianu puo
slons begin to develop" nnder Ameri
csd administration, we shall procure
mnm of Bueh articles from those sour-
in ratnrn for on r nurchaae

August Flower
"It is a surprising faat," says Prof.
Houton, that in my travels in all
parts of the world, for to the last ten
years, I bave met more people having
used Green's August Flower than any
other remedy for dyspepsia, deranged
liver and stomach, and for constipa
tion. I find for tourists and salesmen,
or for persons filllrg office positions,
where headaches and general bad feel
ings from irregular habits exist, that
Green's August Flower is a grand
remedy. It does not injure tbe system
by frequent use, and is excellent for
sour stomach and indigestion."
