During the week dried fruit lias
declined fully 1 cent, with n. prospect
of still further decline. The crop of
apples is very large this year as a
whole in the United States, and as it
will take months to determine the
quantity that will be dried, dealers
are unwilling to buy until the con
sumptive demand begins, except
sparingly at very low prices. Of
course we nor any one else can tell
what the price will be three months
hence. It will necessarily be low,
but just how low is the important
question. We will not advise any
one to hold or sell. They must de
termine for themselves. We will
venture to say we think it is not safe
to hold the early summer dried ap
pies. They are generally dark and
inferior, and liable to become wormy,
and when the bright fall and winter
fruit comes into market, the inferior
quality will most likely be neglected.
A reliable country merchant has just
returned from Nashville, where he
soiu several tnousana pounds 01 ap
ples and peaches. After trying all
the buyers 3 cents for both apples
and blackberries delivered at Nash
ville, was all he could get, and he
sold for that. Less than a week ago
they were worth 3 to 3 in the same
market. According to Western mar
kets 3 cents is all Nashville can safely
pay at present, and 2 to 2J all
it is safe to pay here. They are
more likely to go lower than higher
within the next 30 days
Eggs are holding up well consider
ing the hot weather. They are in
'good demand at quotations. Poultry
rules very dull in all the markets
Common country butter can hardly
be sold at any price. The wheat
market has advanced on account of
short crops in foreign countries. It
is worth $1.00 in Nashville and we
believe the same in McMinnville.

The National Association of dem
ocratic clubs will launch a decided
political novelty on the 12th of Sep
tember, when a special car under the
control of that Association will start
from. Washington on a forty days
missionary tour. The car will go
direct to Chicago and from there to
St. Paul and Minneapolis, where
special meetings will be addressed by
the speakers who will compose the
crew of missionaries ; from there it
will go by easy stages along the
Northern Pacific railway.stopping at
all important points to allow the ed
ucational work to be done. The car
will bo due at Sppkane Falls on the
23rd of September, upon which date
a convention of the democratic clubs
will be in session there, and a grand
reception will be held.
The journey will then be contin
ued around Puget Sound in Oregon ;
thence through California, Utah and
Colorado, and returning to Iowa
about the time tho State campaign
has reached its warmest period
There the missionaries are to take off
their coats and take a hand in re
electing (Jovernor lioies. The car
will be in charge of Mr. Lawrence
Gardner, Secretary of the Associa
tion, and among those who have al
ready volunteered as working mis
sionaries are Senator Kenna, Repre'
sentative Byrum, ex-Representative
McAdoo and Hon. Chauncey F.
Black, president of the Association.
A number of prominent democrats
have the invitation under considera
tion, and if they can so arrange their
business affairs will also become mis
sionaries for the dissemination of
sound democratic doctrine. Some of
them who cannot spare the entire
forty days may join the party tem
porarily either coming or going, or
both. Success to the idea and to the
Secretary Foster, who has returned
to Washington, is very much put out
because of the publication of the fact
that the continuation of the matur
ing 4J per cent, borlds at 2 per cent.
is already practically a" failure. Less
than $20,000,000 of tho $51,000,000 of
these bonds outstanding when the
offer was made have been presented
for continuance and only two weeks
remain in which they may be con
tinued. What remains out after that
time must be redeemed and that is
what is worrying the astute Secreta
ry of the Treasury. If any large
amount of these bonds are to be re
deemed and it seems certain now
that there will be, it will be nccessa
ry to make a considerable hole In the
$100,000,000 gold reserve fund, and
although Mr. Foster says that he will
not hesitate to use this fund if it be
comes necessary, it is known that he
would much prefer not having to do
so, as lie is well aware that lie has no
legal right to pay out one dollar of
Representative Mills, who has
been doing a little campaigning in
Iowa, is back in Washington hard at
work on his book on the tariff. Mr.
Mills says he found the greatest en
thusiasm existing among the Iowa
democrats, and from his own obser
vations he is of the opinion that
Boies will be re-elected and that the
entire ticket and legislature will also
be carried by the democrats. Mr.
Mills expects to make Washington
his headquarters until October, when
ne is unaer engagement to maKe a
number of speeches in the Ohio cam
paign. He is a warm admirer of
Governor Campbell and expects to
see him defeat the high priest of pro
tection ; he is also confident that the
next Ohio legislature will certainly
be anti-republican, if it is not con
trolled by democrats exclusively.
It begins to look very much like Mr.
Harrison would have a first-class ne
gro revolt on his hands if he dares to
send a white man to Hayti, as minjs-
Hance would have It National ticket
id the field next year. Mr. Polk Is
said to be very much offended be
cause the Maryland Alliance conven
tion was friendly towards Senator
Gorman in spite of his efforts to
make it otherwise.
Washington has already secured
pledges of six votes in the National
Democrat Committee which will,
next February, decide where the
next National Convention is to be
held, and efforts are being made to

they will do everything in their
power to keep the negro voters of
Ohio at home on election day if Mr
Harrison does not appoint a negro to

On the other hand those who profess

that a white man shall be sent to
Hayti to assist in carrying out his
policy with regard to that country.
President Polk of the National

interview claiming the earth, so to
speak, and taking special occasion to
make attacks upon Senotors Vance,

Representative Oates of Alabama,
The Washington Gazette recalls
the fact that in 1850 "the country
was In a high state of prosperty, and
money as good as gold was plenty."
Why was the country prosperous
at that time? Because, in addition to
proper development of our material
resources, our financial system suited
the wants of our people, and was
adapted to the expanding business of
the country. It was so localized that a
few men in Wall street could not get
it under their control.
"Plenty of money as good as gold!"
The currency was not United States
treasury Dotes it was the issue of lo
cal banks organized under State laws.
This money was expanded or con
tracted in obedience to the laws of
demand and supply. Backed by lo
cal wealth, it had local confidence,
answered local needs, and stood in
such good repute that the notes of
some of the banks circulated at par,
even in Canada, and at times, for
convenience, commanded a premium
This currency, the best that the
country's ever had, was outlawed as
a war measure in the interest of Wall
street pluctocrats, who had the Gov?
erment by the throat, and from that
day to this our financial system has
been contracted by a few men who
have it in their power to regulate
values, make good times or hard
times, and keep the entire country at
This is too big a couutry to be con
trolled in its infinancial matters by
Wall street. We need a great many
money centers instead of only one.
The different sections and commercial
and industrial divisions of tho coun
try with their diversified interest
need their own local or home curren
It is well, occasionally, to turn
back to the past for a lesson a lamp
of experience that will guide our foot
The Chattanooga Times quotes the
above from the Atlanta Constitution,
and replies as follows:
j. xne btate Dans circulation in
18G0 was $207,102,476. Not one dollar
in three of the whole could be con
verted into gold on demand. Not
one dollar in ten could be used, save
at a discount, beyond the State where
issued: most of it could only be used
in the near vicinity or the bank.
Outside of the banks of New York
City this "money" was a snare and
delusion. The people of the North
west were plundered of millions by
wildcat banks, that bloomed and
blossomed for a few months, failed
and left the bill holders in the lurch.
2. The "few rami in Wall street
controlled the issues of the solvent
banks of 18G0, for those banks, tho
old "red banks" of Ohio, the "free
banks" of Indiana and the Southern
banks, all got the securities on which
their bills were based lrom Wal
3. The talk about these abomina
ble rags being "expanded and con
traeted in obedieuce to the laws of
trade" is enough to make a mer
chant of that time either curse the id
iot who writes such rot, or burst off
his buttons with laughter.
1. Instead of being "the best the
country ever had" it was the unsafest
trashiest trash, that ever cursed
civilized state since the days of the
French assignots. It put trade at the
mercy in many communities, of the
sleekest scoundrels unhung, whose
banks were the purest of swindles.
5. The chatter about, "control by
Wall street" is the most nauseating
demagogy extant. The money afloat
is now good in every corner of the
United States. Its volume cannot be
abridged by one penny in Wall street
except it may bo "locked up," and
this would as naturally harmen to
