J - Two . important Events. i Two events of the pastweek have y-been of much consequence to the business interests of the country. The one of great vital importance to the whole people is the develop ment of the grain crops to a point where their safety is practically cer? tain. The other, secondary in impor tance, though of much significance, is the adoption of tariff schedules by the lower house of congress, thus seeming to assure the early settlement of this perplexing question. The grain yields forecasted are of such large proportions that, as a re sult, there has been some decline in the markets. The price, however, sure to be paid for the year's produc tion, is one that will augment by many millions of dollars the wealth and purchasing power of the agricul tural sections. In signing the new tariff law, President Taft has re moved the last obstacle to the pro gress of business. With the passing into history of these two events there should, and there will be, an immediate renewal of delayed financial and commercial projects. Manufacturers and mer chants, who have been waiting for a clear business horizon, -.should be ready by the end of the month to re-" sume operations, not merely on a nor-j mal scale, compared with 1906,. butt rather on a scale that will be normal, three years hence. . r It has been said that the steel in dustry sets the pace for trader 'TlieV steel plants are already- working -a6 their full capacity w'ith plans under way to greathMncrease their output.- Railways, instead' of having idle cars filling the sidetracks, are sending rush orders for new equipment. "The earnings of one railway, the Atchison, show an increase this year of more than $7,000,000 over the 'previous 12 month. Other railway companies, by increasing dividends, exhibit similar improvement in business. Only laggards will be Jeft behind in the march of commerce now about to start.
