Mr. PtiWbury has for many years
been prominent in the aft'aiiy of this
cl j and was one of the most Influ

rable estate. It is understood
thai he leaves a large legacy to fills
bury academy, Owaionna.
George .Mfrtd PUlsbury was born Aug. 29,

Mr. Pi'.'.sbury was sixty-two years of as:-;
■when h-> settled in Minneapolis. With an
ample fortune, a lucrative business, and a
record of over forty year.s of acrive bllstneas
and civic IKe behind him he might well have
concluded that the time had come when he
could enjoy in retirement tho fruits of hla
lndus'riou. 3 life. But the event proved that
he had oplv entered a wider fle'.d of oppor
tunity, and lis indomitable energy declined
no call to labor or service. Municipal of
fices, financial boards, charitable, church and
lonary . ;irerpriscs, directorship and
trusts were thiust upon hhn. while the cur
rent of private benevolence flowed in a
steady but enlarged stream.
Soon after hi 3 arrival in Minneapolis ha was
made a member of the board of education,
and was elected to the city council, of which
he became president. In ISB4 he wa3 nora!
naud by the Republican city convention
as its candidate for mayor. A popular Dem
ocrat had long been at the head of the city
government, ar.d vehement public sentiment
called for a change. It seemed a 'for orn
hope." Mr. Pillsbury being pitted against
the mayor then in office. This canvass was
brief but enercetic on both Fides Mr Pil's
bury being elected by B.MO majority. His
administration of the city government was
characterized by devotion ro detail, economy
in expenditure, and rigid control of unruly
elements. Not the >ast pleasant feature of
hi.s public duties was the graceful manner
in which he received and welcomed the city's
guests. A.s mayor he was ex-offlcio a in m
ber of the bwrd of park commissioners and
of water works board, aa well as head of the
pclice department. The ancestral motto of
tho tastily found in him a truthful exso
aer.i. Labor, constant and concentrated con
quered all.
Among the corporate and quasi pubic
trusts which he has filled aro 'president o'
the board of trade, of the homeipjthl,? hos
pital, of the free dispensary, chamber of cjm
xnen-e. Pillsoury and TJurlbut Elevator com
paay; vice president of the Minnesota Loan
and Trust company, dirrc'or and president of
the Northwesters National bank, director of
the Maiuifartarers' National bank, of the Mi>-.
r.eap'-is Elevator company and of the North
western Guaranty Loan company.
He has also served as president of the St
Paul and Minneapolis Baptist union, of the
Minnesota Baptist state convention, as trus
tee of the Chicago university, and in liSi
at the annual meeting of the American Bap
tist union, he was elected its president. This
organization has its he-udquaners in Bosto i
and has charge of al! the foreign mli.-ionar/
work of all the Northern and s.imj of the
Southern states, distributing annually nearly
fSOQ.COG for mission work in foreign fields by
thu Ilaptist church.
In 1\ C 5 Mr. Pillsbury wa? chairman if the
committee to build the Minneapolis Chamber
of Co:nmerce, one of the Knelt buildings of
lt.s kind in the Northwest, and in whisa more.
ertua.l wheat is bought than in ai.y other
place in the world. The following year he
was chairman of thff building (oxmittee o:
the First Baptist Church of Minneapolis, in
the erer-tion ,-f the third edifice for th.v.
church, which, when completed, was the larg
est and most ccstiy church building cf any
d nomination west «>f Chicago.
The Minnesota academy, located at O*a
tocna, Minn., p sch.ccl opcAn to all, but un
der patronage of the Baptist stite convention,
has been a bsaefiriary of Mr. Piilsbury'.s
bounty. In I**; he built, at a cost of I'VuX.O

STKVENS POINT, Wis., July 17.—
TlH' Wisconsin River Pulp & Paper
company's mill was destroyed by fire
today. The loss will be between $150,
--©OO and $200,000, fully covered by in
surance.
The fire originated in a hot box lti
the cone room underneath the bi^
paper machine. Th ■ floors, pulleys and
I>< kins being saturated with oil, the
fiaine* quickly spread throughout th-e
Whole building and the plant, being lo
cated outside the city lhnits, the fuil
complement of the lire department did
rot respond, w. T. Bliscom, chief o?
tho tire department, sent down to the
city for the emergency fire engine,
Which did good work in s-aving prop

The mill contained two paper ma
chines, the large-st and best in the
flalo, capable of turning out an aver
age of fifty tons of jolne-J paper a day.
Then- was also destroyed a dcub c bat
tery of Holyoke beaters, strains and

SHANGHAI, July 17.— The Chinese
having refused to accept an offer of
money by the French and the promise
cf a new site to replace the Ningpo
JOfifl house, the final repository for
Niagpoeee corpses, the French object
b. i!.« the removal of the nuisance and
the Improvement cf the road, eighty
Bailors wore landed from the French
cruis- r Eclaleur on Saturday and com
menced pulling. down the wall of the
unused cemetery. Later some stone
throwing was indulged in by the pop
ulation. The sailors and the French
police maintained order. It is report
ed that one native rowdy was bayonet
ed today.
It is reported that the Ningpo head
men have declared a general boycott
against Shanghai. None of the Ningpo
shops are open and no Nlngpoese are
at work. The headmen's orders have
be^n posted.The volunteers paraded this
afternoon and were kept in readiness in
case of need. Three natives are report
ed to have been shot. The bridges
between the French and English set
tlements are closely guarded.
ST. PETERSBURG, July 17.— Advices
received here report that on July 1 an
insun ection occurred in Kansu, the
most northwest province of China, aris
ing from dissatisfaction with the now
taxes.
TAX ON BANKS.
An Important Itulinu; by the Com
mlMKionfr *-A llevenur.
WASHINGTON. July 17.— The com
missioner of internal revenue has held
that in estimating the amount of spe
cial tax required to bo paid by a bank,
based aa the law requirts upon capital
and surplus., the amount invested in
United States bo nils Is not to be de
ducted. It is held that there is no pro
vision Of law which warrants such de
duction inasmuch as the tax is not up
on the bonds, but upon the business of
banking, the capital and surplus which
may include bonds is taken as a basis
far fixing the amount of the tax.
The commissioner has also held that
receipts used as checks to draw money
from banks are su'bj-o-crt to the stamp
tax. It is said that several banks In
order to avoid the stamp tax are ac
cepting receipts for cash which, ac
cording: to the letter of the law, ar?
empt. The comsnisekmer, however, has
decided that under those circumstances
receipts to all intents and purposes are
checks, and therefore must be stamped.
SUEVIVOKS OF DISASTER.
Those Saved From :.u Itourgogne
Arrive Safely «t Havre.
.PARIS, July 17.— The arrival of the
steamer La Touraine from New York
at Havre today with the survivors of
the wrecked steamer La Bourgogr.e was
the occasion of a sad scene and a sen
sational demonstration on the part cf
a great crowd which had assembled.
The trars and robs of the relatives of
those who were drowned when they
found that the last hope was gone were
heartrending, contrasting markedly
with the transports of joy of the
friends of the saved.
The survivors of tho disaster were
extremely reticent, and their stories
failed to develop any new details.

The dullness whioh has existed in the whpat
market ever since the collapse of Mr. Leiter I
continues, and there is little trading ipr
speculative accounts above the dignity of j
mere scalping on small margins of profit. ;
-Monday's opening showed a dec'.lne and a
general bear Beii'iirnent prevailed. This was ;
largely due to the superb conditions which
existed throughout the country with reference
to the development of the new crop. Prices
show a decline from a week ago. July clossd
In Chicago at 73% c, as against 6»V£c the pre
vious week. The closing price of the Septem
ber option in the markets named below, at I

There is practically no feature in the mar
ket beyond that which attaches to the har
vesting period, already far advanced, so far I
aa the winter wheat Is concerned, and shortly j
to begin in the spring wheat belt. There is |
j no doubt that some disappointment has been |
experienced in the Southern and Western sec- i
tions as the result: of the threshing thus far. |
Considerable damage was. >also inflicted j
upon the shock and wheat from the heavj |
rains. In a general way, however, the win- j
ter wheat yield will be moderately large In i
comparison with the statistics of a year ago. j
The shrinkage in the volume of the yield !
comes chiefly from the deficiency of wheat la
the ear. In many sections where the drouth
of last fall prevailed and where rains^in the
earlier weeks of the present season caused i
an abnormal growth of the p:ant on the one
hand and a lodging on tho other, there has !
been slack filling o£ the ear. In a few locali- j
ties rust and the chinch bug did some dam- i
age, and In others the hot weather breaking '■
in suddenly at a time when the grain was in !
the milk caused some damage by the shrink- j
ing of the heads. The sections thus injured j
are.however.ln the extreme Southwest. In the
Southern states there has been little depie- !
ciation in the general character c-f the grain.
The crops of Ohio, Michigan. Tennessee and j
Kentucky are reported to be more nearly up I
to expectations than those in any other lo- !
calities.
In the spring wheat region the same con- J
dition exists wiiich prevailed a week ego, an 3
even a fortnight ago, except that during iha
past four or five days excessive hpa,-. hs
fallen upon the grain in its approach to the
ripening period and hot winds have been ex
perienced, causing some apprehension, par
ticularly in localities where rain has not bean
so abundant as in others. This is particularly
true in boili North and South Dakota. Re- j
fort, however, from thess sections da not i
indicate any alarm as yet. There has been ■
considerable rainfall in Northern Minneso'.a, I
through the Red River valley and North Da- j
kota and the moisture afforded has b?e i
regaide,; as timely. Sou-he:n Minnesota ero s
are reported to be in prime coidi.lon. Sou h !
Dakota, for a distance cf 10U miles west 0* !
tho Minnesota border, promises a good yied. j
but the dry weather and hot winds there |
usually have the effect of shrinking the gra n.
especially where the plant is not very btrcn?. !
The general reports received from the heads j
of railways traversing this territory, how- i
ever, are to the effect that the straw :■ j
stronger and more healthy and possessed of a '
larger degree of resistance to all weather con
ditions than for the past several years.
Little can be said of a reliable nature in
regard to the condition in Europe. Pri-es in
Liverpool have been sluggish and trading in- j
active. It appears to be evident that ths I
dealers at the principal ports are assured j
that the American crop will be very large and i
abundantly able to meet any European defl- j
ciancy that may develop when the harvesting
period arrives. Meanwhile, howovf-r, wra'.
seemed to be the exorbitant estimates or our
home crop, namely 700,000,^06 bu, are gradual
ly being reduced until they have reachei
804,600,-000, but even this estimate wlil repro- I
sent a yield of approximately 80,C0;i,0G0 ba >
in excess of that of 3537. The average con
dition as reported by the govtrnment experts
indicates an improvement in the crop over j
that of last year. As evidence of the fau j
that supplies are growing short, the statement |
is made that many of the railroads runniig !
into the spring wheat sections have already
forwarded large numbers of cars and dis
tributed them at different points with a vi-w
to prompt shipments of wheat upon it 3
delivery to the interior elevators.
Exports are growing less week by week
with a general fetling of uncertainty as to
just what the outlook may prove to be by
the time the wheat begins to come to irurkit.
The following is from the review c-f tie
Northwestern Miller in its issue of July 15: i
Prospects are favorable for a «ood wheat j
yield in the Noithwest. Of course, the weam- I
er during tho i.ext few weeks will have, a i
greit r"<::.l to .lo with the final outcome. At !
present condMions are very favor-able. Re- i
ports from all parts of the Northwest shuw
| good general indications for tbo growing
wheat and other crops. In a largs part of j
South Diikcta, whtut that had !•« en injurej j
by hot winds two weeks ago was helped I
i out by rains, which contributed largely to :
' re.- lore lost prospects. The larger part <:f ■
I that st<u«j was not striously injured by hot I
I weather, it being the drier portions, anl I
! more especially on sandy ridges, where tho <
Ida magi* was done. Many portion's promise j
| the finest crop in many years, while the '
j prospect, on the whole, appears to justify ex- j
j pectations of more than an average >ield Tor !
j the state. In Minnesota and North" Dakota !
: prospects are good. There ar9 a few placed !
i that suffered from heat and hail, but th°so *
! conditions were merely local, and will net !
i greatly change the general prospects.
i Supplies of whpat in the Northwest are >
, about f>, OOO, GOO bu les than a year ago, and i
| amount to some 10.500,000 bu. of v.hi.jh about
| 7.000,000 are in public and private elevators
in Minneapolis. About 3,000 000 bu are at
! Duluth, and less than 300.000 in country tie.- i
vators. Local mills have been grinding at
: the rate of about 775,000 bu per week, lately
' which Is only about half capacity. If the
I mills should work at the usual capacity tor
j this season of the year, the, quantity of wheat I
now in store would not carry them through
August.
Prices in England continue weak, owing
! to free offerings cf new winter wheat for
| August shipment ai:d new spring wheat for
: be shipped during September. Foreigners ru- j
gard the pronpt-.cts in this country for a luit.c :
, yield as being almost an assured fact, owing
to the low prices at which the wheat is of- :
, f-^red now for future delivery. They are :
backward about taking hold, in consequence
1 causing foreign markets to be about us lifc
i less as those on this side. Mere wheat lias
come out than had been expected which :
i with high prices and diminished comrump
' tien, leuvos enough to flcteh the season. For
eign buyers, as well as horns consumers' have
; gone through rather easier than wu antici
pated would be possible.
The following is the review of the Price '
. Current:
The dry weather has favored harvesting !
I conditions where in progress, and a'so has
; facilitated threshing opera'.icns, which are
being carried on to considerable extent In the
central regions. The Indications are that
While occasionally the results are fully up to !
or better than expectations, the prevailing '
condition is one of disappointment in man- !
tiiy and quality of the wheat.
The avera.ee condition of winter wheat Is '
officially reported at fc5.7, of spring wheat at
05, and for the whole at Mi. 4— the lßfer be- '
ing 3.s points higher than a year ngo. The
pp'vious returns as to acreage sown indi
cated 106,7 for winter wheat, and 110 for
spring wheat, compared with the preceding I
| year— lmplying an aven-ge Increase of -ibout '
j 7 per cent. The Juno report placed the aroa !
lat 43,000,000 acres. Th^ present Indication '
j implies about 14',i bu as the avtragc yield
suggestive; about G18.0C0.000 Iju for the 'crop
I or 85,000,000 in excess of last year. It is like- ;
ly the later estimates will be on a lower
basis.
The Orange Judd Farmer has tMs to say
in regard to th« condition of spring wheat:
The spring wheat condition is a litL'e lows?

LIVE STOCK MARKET.
UNION STOCK YARDS, Soutih St. Paul.—
There were 117 carloads of live stock received
at the Union stock yards, South St. Paul, last
•week, as against 70 the week previous, being
a gain of 47 cars. The receipts were: Cattle
1,230; c-alves, 729; hogs, 3,736; sheep, 1,113, and
horses, 86. The receipts during the previous
week were: Cattle, 899; calves, 336; he« 3.
1,963; sheep, 942. These figures ffoow a gain
of cattle, 331; calves, 393; hogs, 1,773; she--n.
173.
During the week Swift & Co. killed of cat
tle. 337: calves, 27; sheep, SCO, and hogs, 2,095.
The killing of the week previous were: Cat
tle, 571; calves, 15; sheep, 255; hogs. 2.500.
These figures show a decrease for the week in
cattle, 234; hogs, 405; and a gain in sheep of
215, and calves, 12.
It is the period of mild-summer dullness,
and the offerings of stock, as will appear by
above report, were very limited. The market
throughout the entire week, however, was
fairly strong for all olaases of stock. There
were a few lots of fat cattle, but the r.umbsr B
of nil Qualities were Insufficient to meet the
requirements of the packing plant alone The
same may be said of hogs, cf which there
were very light arrivals. There wera some
good lots among those received, but in the
main the quality was inferior. There Is a
good demand existing for stockers, and cuite
a number of yearlings 'were offered, but th?
individuals amongst the number, with a few
exceptions, show sign* of very poor breeding.
Preparations are completed for the receipt of
the first installments cf ranch cattle, which
are expected to make their appearance within
the next fortnight. Large interest attaches
to the shipments in view of all that has been
re-ported regarding tJhe shortage of range cat
tle, but more especially ,in view of the excel
lent condition of pasture in the section of tho
country whence this stock is derived. There
will unquestionably be- a large demand for
feeders in the territory tributary to this mar
ket. There is a generail awakening of a pur
pose on the part of formers hereabouts to go
more extensively into the feeding of cattle
The past, season has demonstrated the fact
that the South St. Paul market is a perma
nent fixture, and that sufficient competition al
ready exists there to insure ths equivalent
of the Chicago prices for everything, of cor
responding quality, that may be offered Min
nesota farmers for the last four or five years
have not had the capital to enable them to
branch out into this particular industry but
th ,!w,° d C ' rO , PS and W** ppri es' es oi la *t War,
wiCh the probable repetition of that experience I
the present year, will have the effect of sup- I
PO'ing them with means with which to em
bar* more exliShatvely in this line. The fact
has been impressed upon them tSiat, with the
high prices that inus; rule for cattle for a con
siderable time to ccme. the industry will piove i
profitable, especially in view cf the climatic
countr 01 ' 8 WhiClh eXiE * in thlS SeCt!on ol tile
There are Indications that an Improvement
in the quality of hogs is likely to be re
alized. Slnco the opening of the Swift &
Co. f plant last October, there has be?n a
very good average run of hogs, but not near- 1
ly enough to meet the demand of this mar
ket. It must be borne in mind by farmers
who are turning to the raising of hogs that
the BtocS forwarded to South St. Paul 13
not wholly absorbed by the packing plants
established there or by the butchers who
supply the local trade for pork, but that,
owing to the generally healthy condition of
the hogs of the Northwest, barring the un
pleasant advent of hog cholera, whi, h male
ravages in the Wesc 1a..-;t summer and Jail,
the hogs of this section are sought for other
markets. With the coming of the cold s a-on
of the year tht-re will be many buyers, not
only for Milwaukee and oiher localities
where the hogs are slaughtered, but for ship
ment to the far East This was the experi
ence last year and there are indications that
it Will be npeated in a large measure the
coming season.
Sheep will begin to come forward very
shortly. At present tre r market is very dr
fic-ient in its attempts to supply the demand.
The South St. Paul yards have a promising
outlook for the coming season snd wl h their
doubled capacity for -handling stock the im
portance of this center will be materially
emphasized.
LIVE CATTLE EXPORTS.
During the first five months of the year
our exports of live cattle to Great Britain i
amounted to 17!),092 head. During the same I
period Argentine Bent 46,145, and Canada 1;' - |

1,227,104 cwt. as compared with 1,114.057 cwt '

was approximately $22,762,810, and of mt>ats 1

RANGE CATTLE.
In connection with the decadence of ranges,
noticed elsewhere, the falling off in the com
parative receipts of range cattle, including
what are distinctively known as Texans, \
makes an interesting study. The fUtues '
given are for Chicago, but th r -y truthfully in- j
dicate the situation: In IS9O tre total re- 1

EARLY BREEDING OF SHEEP.
As young lambs bring mere in winter and I
early spring than eveu they or mature sheep j
bring at any later age, it is an object *o breed .
early, says Dr. Ca'.en Wilson, in Farm zm\ i
Fireside. The general time of breeding sheep j
is in the fall; but this brings lpicbs >oa lat ■ j
for beft prioss. July and August are the 1
months to mate the soxes. Kwe3 to be s?- !
lectcd are those which are In excellent ion
ditlon, and which have nursed a lamb for a ,
mouth or two. Then let them b« kep: 0.1 .
■rood pasture where there Is plenty of shada j
and cool drinking water convenient. Turn I
with them a strange vigorous ram. But w.th
a!l of these precautions a share o( thes? I
ewes will not breed untli !aie, unless they
have previously been accustomed to bre?U
early. It is natural for sheep to bleed at
a year from the time tliey are last bred. A
good way to get early breaders is ti grow !
them. Keep the ewe lanios of this s;. r!n{ '
from breeding until July or August of naxt :
year, and then thiere will be Utile trouble
i:bout it. and one will have a flock of natural- ;
ly early breeders. Some claim sticct'ss in '
early breeders by rfeedUlg grain in BUaimer,
until bred; and otihers starve their sheep a
day or two just previous to mating; but from
observations I can say. 1 neither is reliable. !
The early lamb business Is worthy the atten- j
tion of every farmer- who-i keeps shesp, unle?s !
he grows sheep for. One cau man- j
age to get twice as,mu<;li for a two months'
lamb as he can for, a jamb or the mature i
slieep for mutton anjy Uaie after the age of
two months. — Evening Wisconsin.

of Canadians are Inspecting the stock, and
some sales for the northern trade have already
been made. The dealers art Midway report
some advance in prices at different points in
the country, from which the Btock must be

THE IDEAL ROAD HORSE.
The 15% to IG-hand horse of solid color,
with broad forehead, oars of good size .md
well proportioned, good length from base of
ear to eye, eyes full and expressive, -.vit'h
lids free from meatiness, face straight no=
trils wsll rounded, full, large and thin lips,
not thick and well closed, neck of good
length, shapely, clean cut at Jowl and fkting
well at shoulders, which can hardly be too
sloping, the point of the withers beflng back
of the saddle, chest of good width, forearm
lor- and heavily muscled, knees firm, broad,
straight a#l strong, cannons short, flat, b;oad
and flirty, pasterns good length, muscular
and nervy, free from mealiness, the ankle
from toe to ankle joint being about thirty
five degrees, feet round, of size proportionate
to the animal, free from contracted heels,
of good material and with e!a«. lc frog, baf
rel-sliia.ped like an inverted egg, deep at girth
as well as waist, allowing full use of lungs
without infringing upon other organs, back
short, the point of coupling on a line with
that of hip, thus allowing for the es:ensico
of the muscles of attachment well forward
over the kidneys, giving greater strength to
the weakest spot in the amiraal anatomy as
well as in man, quarters of good length, not
too sloping, thus affording room for the ires
s-tlfle action so necessary in the ideal driver,
stifles and gaskins long, of good width,
abounding In muscular attachments, hocks
free from meairtlnesa, sound, strong, neither
straight nor hnving a decided angle, and
not cut un3er too sharply at base.
Such a horse, going smooth and true, nei
ther paddling nor teeing in forward, nor,
as we say, stratfdlinp; behind, will always
command a top price in the market, provid.-d
he has been educated, and abounds in nerv
ous en-ergv. Form, size, color, symmetry
and substance are essentials, but theye do
rot insure the road horse. To these mu3t bo
added individuality, the result of bre-.dins.
It manifests itself in what we term nervous
energy, the up-and-get-there power. It is
the power of heredity, so dtsira'ble, so neces
sary. To secure this there must be a high
ideal and a fixed determination in b-e?ding. —
G. M. Twitchell in lowa Homestead.
ONE MAN'S PREFERENCE.
I prefer a compact, short-legged horsa,
weighing from 1.300 i!o 1,500 pounds. There
is no practical difficulty in producing such
horses even from our miscellaneously bred
mares, as well bred draught stallions, have
proved themselves successful sires of this
class of stock. Such a horse can be raised
almost as cheap'.y as a steer of^ the same
age, the only additional cost being the stall
ion fee. which is now a very reasonable fig
ure. There will be little or no expense for
training or breaking, and as soon as o!d
enough such a horse will sell readily unless
seriously blemished.
We have made mistakes in the past in be
ing anxious to produce horses of extreme size,
and have bred for that regardless of quality.
The product was not very satisfactory; th2y
lacked endurance, were apt to have poor
feet or unsound joints— especially the hock
joint — with legs round and beefy, and pre
disposed to scratches and other ailmr-nt3.
The depressed horse market and the conse
quent c'.ose discrimination exercised by buy
ers have shown us the necessity of endeavor
ing to produce useful animals of superior
quality, and to produce such we must select
our breeding stock with more care. — Ex
change.
ST. PAUL. PRODUCE.
The produce market has been generally
active throughout the wesk. Butter has
been in good demand, but receipts were
light, a condition attributable to the fact
that farmers are occupied with their work
of harvesting. Everything is readily taken
up that is offered. The demand for firsts
and Bfconds has increased, due, probably, to
the limited supply of extras. Eggs were in
good demand, but the offerings were quito
limited and prices were firm, with a tcn
df-ncy to higher values. The demand camo
largely from jobbers, and there were a
number of shipping orders. Green vogetabhs
are increasing in volume of receipts, and
fruits of all kinds are plentiful, of very good
quality, as a rule, and exceedingly lev/- !
priced.
APPLE CROP PROSPECTS.
The following is a summary of the Orange
Judd Farmer report on the apple crop pros
pect:
In no state is there uniform prospect of a
full apple crop. The July condition is ap
parently best in New England, parts of Cau
ada, Wisconsin and <\ few other sections of
the Northwest; nowhere is there a more gen
eral complaint of severe deterioration than '
in the heavy apple section of Central and
Western New York, which is always such a
fictor in supplying the market*. Shouid
the shortage there, due to unfavorable weath
er, inifcts and fungous pests, prove as great
as this preliminary report would se.em to in- i
dicate. it must mean an added outlet for fa- '
vored appk-growing sections in New Eng
land, the w&naaon provinces and the West, j
The iirpnrtant orchard, districts in the
States of uur Middle West and the South- i
west do not promise well for a good crop of I
winter fruit. Reports received up to the
present time from Nebraska, subject to mod- !
ifleatl.-n after receiving later returns, point
to fair promise; this in also true of Wis
consin, where a state official high in au
thority, says the present outlook Is for a full
crop, and for three times as much 33 the
small yield of '97. in spite cf some dropping.
In the important apple sections of Eastern
Kansas th>e fruit ban dropced bjdlv.
Disappointment has come to orcharditts In '
the rapidly developing apple t*it of Arkan
sas, where the outlook is for a crop only j
hnlf to two-thirds of a fu'.l one. M sonri \
has its share of insect and fungous pctts, |
and the crop will be very short of a fu 1 one. I
County correspondents in Illinois iydic.ite :
about half a crop, subject to later modlfi- '
cations, or much the same as the Missouri
outlook. The promise in lowa is fair, as a
whole, and tho relatively few counties in
Minnesota and South Dakota growing winter .
apples promise wel!. Tiie situation in Indl- ;
ana In far from satisfactory, our county re- ,
turns hinting at less than half a crop, with
like conditions in Ohio. On the Pacific coast
apples as a whole are doing well, pointing to ,
a full yield. Returns afford further tegtl
mony to what we have frequently printed
out. that our fruit growers in the Middle j
West do not devote as much attention to
spraying as they should, and for thaf mat-
Ur less than some of the older and equally
Important fruit sections. In general there is
a fairly good outlook for summer apples,
and tho early varieties are already appearing
In Chicago and other nuirkels.
THE POTATO OUTLOOK.
If favorable weather conditions continue
with no serious development of blight, there
is every reason to believe the '98 crop of
potatoes will prove a liberal one, and con
siderably in excess of that of last year.
The encouraging outlook in the West is
common to nearly every state, yet it Is alto
gether too early to forecast probabilities.
There, is plenty of time for rapid decline in
condition if surroundings are not propitious.
A Rcnerul increase Is the rule in Wisconsin,
well-posted men in the heavy potato bMt
placing this at 15 per cent over last yenr.
In general, the crop looks well, although
s-oine fields on late flat land have been in
jured by excessive rains, and should 11
season of drouth follow the wet weather of
early summer, feirs are entertained of da
tcrloratlon. These conditions hold true
.largely in Minnesota and the Dakotas, which
have a full acreage and a promising concJl- '
tion; we get no complaints of blight up to
the present time. Nebraska has had much
rain, and the belief prevails that this may
eventually hurt th© quality, although t'.iis
expression of some of our correspondents
Is morely surmise; weather in early spring
was unfavorable in Kansas because it was
cold and wet, and heavy rains have since so
packed the ground in some, counties that
reports indicate a drawback of this charac
ter. The crop promises, fairly well in Mis
souri, and conditions are generally high In
lowa, Illinois, Indiana "'and Michigan.
In the heavy potato sections of the Mid
dle states farmers have little cause for com
plaint up to the present time. The acreage
is large, the crop condition fair to fine.—
Orange Judd Farmer.
A GREAT HAY CROP.
The acreage devoted to the hay crop this
year, 44,000,000 acres, is practically the same
as that of '97, a small decrease in the area
oT meadows in the South and in portions of
the Ohio valley being offset by an increase
in the area of gra33 lands in the district west
of the Mississippi river. Last year a heavy
hay crop was gathered, but the condition of
the crop this year a* the time of haying is
better than a year ago, the acreage pijjhrly
larger, and the indication now is that' the
hay crop of "98 will break all records. The
estimated acreage and the present condition
of the crop is reported by 'states as follows:

THE CORN CROP.
TMs year Minnesota has 957.0 X) acrea planted
to corn, and the reports to the Orange Ju:id
Farmer place the eondiltion at 100. Wiscon
sin has 1,339,000 acres also rated at 100. South
Dakota reports 1,045,000 acres with a rate as
to cond+tion of 98. while North Dakota, with
15,000 acres Is rated »,t 95. Icwa has 8,200.000
15,000 acres, is rated at 95. The total corn acre
age of the country is 81,603,000 acre 3, with
an average rating of 91.
CORN EXPORTS.
The Umlted States exported for the fiscal
year ended June 30, 1898, $73,r.02,-'37 worth of
corn. This shows an increase of nearly
twenty million dollars in value over the larg
est exports of any previous year, and is one
of the most encouragi-ig features el the re
markable statistics of Che past twelve months.
THE OAT CROP.
The oat crop of 1897, as of»cially given by
the department of agriculture, waa 698,768 000
bu. The estimates for 189S indicate a yield of
723,000,000, but this, in some quarters, is re
garded as excessive. The average condition
i 3 rated at 92.8, as against 87.5 last year.

1 — — f
| NEW YORK, July 16.— Wall street appa-
I rently remained unconvinced today that val
ues of securities had been Increased by the
capitulation of Santiago and prices stub
bornly refused to advance in the face of
; that even.;. The upward tendency of Ameri
cans in London was viewed with apathy, and
the few advances at the openeing hour were
j not up to the London parity. The accuaiu
-1 lated orders in commission houses were of
I very small volume, the outside public be
j ing apparently :aken up with other interests
1 than speculation in stocks. The bears were
j confident and aggressive, and wera prompt
j to take advantage of the absence of buying
' dtmand -to attack the market. Sugar was
! ;he first point of attack, and the price jjje'ded
1 quite readily, but only sie.>!l quantities of
: stock were dislodged by the decline. The
j weakness of the coain-s. which had persisted
I all week, continued a marked feature. Thare
i is no doubt there has been liquidation of long
j stock in these companies on account of ac
cumulated troubles of trade. There Is but
s.uggish demand for even tho curtail- d out
put, and the companies fled themselves at
odds over the maintenance of prices and di
vision of territory. The plans for the con-
I structlon of a now road from the anthracite
; region to the tidewater had a further onset
; tling effect. Delaware & Hudson was ea-ily
! forced down V, 2 points, and Reading Ist pre
. lerred avd New Jersey Cen'ral aisj suffered
: materia. declines. Tee bears were a'.s.t busy
! with Manhattan. There was obvious In
: crease in the short account, and no apparent '
effort to cover it over Sunday. The bank '
■ statement is not rpadiiy analyzed. The de- I
crease In cash of $4,043,9D0 Is pracUcaliy all '
. accounted for by the gains of the subtreas- '
! ury during the week, ou account of tho bond
subscriptions. The government's gains on '
this account are not reflected In the dep-etl I
average cf :.he banks, as was the case last •'
! week. The loan expansion is considerably I
; curtailed but still rertects a good bdsinpsa
, situation. The Uga! reserve requirements 13 I
, very little changed by reason of the small •
I decrease in deposits, so that the decine in ,
