't?UHU(H is taking on a more hopeful
look and, al though thn 1 about tue be
mniri of the 1 . 11 reason iu mercantile
drelen, yet a Letter movement in noticed
and price. of Home staple commodities
Iiave advanced. Iron.copperand leather
Hire utronc'T at Letter price than thowe
which ruled 1 it fall and winter. Hail
road earning all over the country are
howin larger inert asew than decreases
and the transactions at the clearing
bouse are of fair volume. Wall utreet
has been dia?ountini? the better timet
which appear to be comiDpj and valuea,
A3 measured by the Htock market's fluctu.

a week at?o, when, it will be remembered,
that a bull market was predicted in these
ettern, general gains have been made in
the Htock market, ranging in Home cases
up to ( point, and the average of clos
ing prices of twenty-five actiye Ne York
tocke, not including the industrial shares
an which the greatest fluctuations have
taken place, is a full point higher.
IVatl street is a good reflector of im
proved conditions and the improvement
has just bgun. There has not been any
sky-rocket mo ;ements such as are wit
tnessed at the climax of a boom, but a
mteady and substantial advance such as
results from an increase in the invest
anent demand and the purchase ot good
securities taken out of the market by
thofle who intend to bold for considerab
ly higher prices, riugar trust stock,
iwhich always has. been tabooed as a safe
investment, nowjis held by over 0,200
shareholders and has risen recently some
11 points, with only 2 points reaction.
The fact that the sugar schedule has been
'Sied satisfactorily to the trust, and
that there is not likely to be another
change for at least a year and a half in
the sugar tariff makes the stock, with its
12 per cent dividends, very attractive.
The increased bond sales during the past
month, also, attest thestronginvestment
demand which is extending to the share
The copper market continues strong at
previously quoted prices of lK'illJ cents
or Lake ingot, Eleven cent sales are not
o very numerous, as many of the mines
Are well sold ahead and bids for small lots
at H1 cents are going unfilled every day.
Tbe figures of the production and exports
af copper during the month of May will
be compiled this week and there is reason
to believe that the total exports will very
much surprise those people who look with
despair at the small quantity of copper
consumed at home and fear that tbe
iarge production will swamp the market.
The exports of tbe metal hare been as
large, if not larger, 'than daring recent
months and will compare favorably with
.May, 180G, when' the export were 100
per cent larger than In the tame month
of the year prerloui, The return bud-

000,000 mark. V gentleman who recent
ly visited the mine suys that in his ouiu
lon the ntock is worth $G() per whare.
It puzzles the street why Tamarack
should continue so hiyh when the divi
dend payments are ho comparatively
meager. The reason, no doubt, is be
cause it is conservatively mauaged, be
cause tbe rock hns improved wonderfully
i.i richness, and because the prospects ft r
larger diidends in the future are excel
lent. President Fay, of the Centennial mine,
has ttrtt Hoston for the Lake. It is re
ported that the development work has
ehown up good copper ground, but the
management is extremely reticent with
the press in regard to news from the Lake.
A gentleman who has given considerable
attention to Centennial says that the
company will have to raise more money
before it can become a producer of any
account, which may, or may not, mean
Montana holds up well in the stock
market and has become more of tn in
vestment and less of a speculation during
the past few months. The earnings are
paid to be large, owing to the low ccst of
production, the large output and the
good prices received for its product. The
next dividend declaration will come in
July and will be the usual $3, but later
ia the yar an extra dividend, probably,
will be declared, if the copper market re
mains steady and no unforeseen accidents
Mr. (J, N. Towle, who returned from tie
Lake last week, U very enthusiastic oyer
what be saw there nnd has spoken warn
ly ot tbe hearty reception which was ac
corded him while in the copper region,
Tbe court has dissolved the injunction
against tbe Boston & Montana Inch wab
applied for by the Montana ore purchas
ing company in the $2,r00,000 '-bluff"
suit brought by the latter for damages.
It is likely that tbe Boston & Montana
will win its suit against the ore purchas
ing company, judging from the recent de
cisions of the court.
1'reasurer Demmon, of the Franklin,
says that the company has ample means
for carrying out the suggestions of Super
intendent (Jrabam Tope for the develop
ment of the Junior mtne.
It ba4 been suggested that the rumors
cf rich strikes in the Pioneer gold mine
are put out pending the tale of more

the company has no need to sell any
more stock, nnd that iumors to that ef

Now that t lit ro is so much talk of tho an
nexation of Hawaii and possibly the istal)
li.hi:icnt of a protectorate, out Cuba dur
ing the McKlnUy administration, it 1
worth while to note the remark recently
niado by a distinguished senator. Ho said
tho United States had ucut yet inado a
bad Investment in territory. Every bit of
land that wo had acquired, whether by
purchaso or conquest, had added to tho
greatness and glory of tho country. "Our
investments In Florida, in Louisiana, and
even in Alaska, turned out to ho most for
tunate," paid tho senator. "I well remem
ber how bitterly opposed many of our most
eminent men wero to tho payment of f 7,
000,000 for Alaska. E. H. Wnshburne,
General Grant's great friend, opposed the
bill. General Uutler made a characteristio
ppeech, In which ho scouted tho idea that
wo should pay this sum out of considera
tions of friendship for Russia. 'If wo aro
to ray this price as usury on tho friend
ship of Russia,' na id llutler, 'wo uro pay
ing for It very dear Indeed.'
A Good Itargaln.
"I remember that at one moment it
looked as if tho bill to purchase Alaska
would be defeated. It would havo failed
as a pure business proposition, for no one
believed tho country was worth having.
It wa3 only because Russia had offered It
to us as a mark of her friendship and be
cause it was feu red that It would be exceed
ingly ungracious In us to refuse it that
the opposition llnally gavo way. General
Nathaniel Ranks was then the chairnmn
of tho committee on foreign affulrs In tho
house, and ho made a ppeeeh which at
tracted great attention. He pointed out
that Russia had been our friend for a hun
dred years; that at every step of our his
tory, from 1 7fc0 to the moment In which
ho was speaking, Russia had shown her
great regard for this country.
"I will never forget one passage of this
speech. 'In the darkest hour of our peril,'
said General Ranks, 'during the rebellion,
When Franco ind England were contem
plating the recognition of the Confederacy,
tho whole world was thrilled by tho ap
pearance in Sun Francisco harbor of a fleet
of Russian warships, and nearly at tho
6anio time, whether by accident or design,
a bccoml fleet of Russian naval vessels ap
peared in the harbor of New York. From
that hour Franco on tho ono hand and
England on the other receded from their
position, and tho American government
regained Its position and power. Now,'
asked General Ranks, 'shall wo llout tho
Russian government in every court in
Europe as a mark of our appreciation for
Its friendship!'' This speech carried the
day. The I 111 was passed. Alaska became
a part of tho United States and is today, as
it long has been, a territory from which
our j topic take eury year many times tho
original cost about vv'iich so much luss
was raised in congress. That was u caso
in which it paid to be generous."
A OiMvntioii of Caste.
John W. Foster, formerly recretary of
ftate, but now our special commissioner
to England for tho purpose of trying to
save some of Undo Sam's valuable prop
erty in Alaska, the seal life, once told me
a queer story about Li Hung Chang. It
appears that when tho great Chineso
statesman was wounded by a pistol shot
at tho banc's of u Japanese fanatio Li Hung
Chang was so mortified that ho wanted to
commit suicide. Ho hud himself dono
nothing disgraceful, but his person had
been touched In violence by the hand of a
low caste man. In tho traditions of tho
orientals this is disgraceful. Tho noblo
who is thus tainted wants to die In order
to wipe tho stain awuy. It was necessary
for soino days to watch the aged states
man to make sure that he did himself no
harm. Mr. Foster and others labored with
him to convince him how foolish was the
notion that because u miscreant had at
tempted his life he should feel humiliated
and disgraced. LI Hung Chang finally
recovered from tho hurt to his pride as
well as from the Injury to his person.
Something like this idea provalls In our
own country. Down In Kentucky, where
cavallerish Ideas of personal honor and
dignity obtain to this day among the well
born men, there is a foeling that one Is dis
graced If an enemy touches him with his
hand. An affront of this sort Is never for
given. An elaboration of the same Idea is
found In tho Kentucky code which re
quires the lie to be avenged In blood. Hap
pily this tradition Is not as strong now as
it was yours ago, but It was only a very
short time ago that a high minded, magnif
icent Kentucky gentleman, ordinarily
calm and gentle of demeanor, went to his
death In vindication of this article of the
code. Every one will remember the dread
ful tragedy at Lexington, Ky., a few years
ago, In which Colonel Goodloe and Major
Swopo killed ono another. This tragedy
recalled to a friend of mi no tho other day
ono of tho prettiest stories In real life I
have hoard in a long time.
A Touching Scene.
"I was at tho funeral of Colonel Good
loe," suid he. "The colonel had been my
friend. A warmer hearted, truer gentle
man never lived. He hud eight beautiful
daughters. To them their fut her was the
hero of tho world. They worshlpod him.
When Colonel Goodloo lay wounded to
death, but still conscious, tho physicians
told tho family there was no hope; that
the end would soon come. Tho mother
and the eight daughters then showed they
were worthy to be the wife and children of
a Kentucky gentleman. One after anoth
er they went up to him, bent down over
his face, kissed him warmly and tenderly
and withdrew. Not one of them wept.
There was no scene, no breaking down, no
fainting. At the grave, after the coflln Lad
been lowered, the nine mourners lifted
tbelr veils, looked down Into the opening
that was about to swallow tbclr hero for
ever, and with sweet, sad voices together
recited tho Lord's Prayer. There tbey
stood silent and motionless till tbe earth
was heaped upon the casket and then tbey
strewed flowers upon tbe grave. No other
Snob sweet, sad picture did I ever see. Ev
ery one of these lovsly girls, with true
Kentucky spirit, said she was glad the fa-
Set had defended his honor, even with his
e. Clcml Qoodloe met his fat becautt
