PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE EXPECTED TO BE REASSURING.
New York, Nov. 30. Special. terly uuublo to IsslmiluU?,
There is a distinctly better feeling In
the financial situation due flmost en
tirely to 'Improvement In the money
market which has been workiug out
its own cure. Hoarded currency is
being returned ; foreign gold is pour
ing into our coffers; bank reserves
are beginning to rise; the credit situa
tion is less strained; call and time
money rales are lower, and .redemp
tion of Clearing House certificates is
already In sight. These yniptoins of
ellef have fortunately shown them
selves even before the additional cur
rency furnished by the Government
become available. They show
natural and healthy tendencies to
wards recovery. As result we have
had a fair rise in tho stock market
and confidence lias been correspond
ingly improved. It is quite evident
tliut the corner has now been turned,
and that liquidation m the main' is
complete. Possibly further weak spots
may develop later on, but thee prom
ise, to be of minor ; Importance. ;;Aftc.if
tho enormous shrinkage ; ami .'liquida
tion of the past few mouths, the
market is evidently on a safer and
sounder basis than it has been for ;i
long period and as soon as the mone
tary situation rights itself and com :
fidemee is more folly restored, values
should go back to a , more normal
level
It is nut pretended that tho market
will promptly or wholly recover from
tho terrific shock which it received
in October last. For somo time to
come irregular markets must be ex
pected with more or less depression
and inertia. It must also be remember
ed that there is comparatively little
money available for investment. The
country's liquid capita! has hofii prnc.
ticany exhausted, so that time will
be required for the accumulation of a
frosh supply; and in view of the re
actionary tendencies which have de
veloped in business.it is quite prob
able that a longer period than usual
will be required for saving purposes.
Another factor which must not be
overlooked is that in spito of the
largo volume, of business profits are
showing a material shrinkage, ow
ing to the immensely augmented cost
of doing business. This is strikingly
I'i'istrated in the current returns of
railroad earnings. In September th
r.-mds repoitlnj? showed a gain of over
f l:!,0(ii.ei 0 in gross earnings, - whib
net earnings showed a loss of f. 3,000,
000. During the nine months ' ending
Sopteuiher there was an increase of
f ir(;"oo,eoo in gross earnings-accompanied
by an increase or only il5,-
t'uO.OOO in net earnings. This is an
almist startling diminution of rail
road profits, especially when It is
considered that grows earnings are
making less and less satisfactory re
turns, while the increases of ex
penses aro still abnormal. No doubt
the railroads will soon bo compelled
to make every possible economy In
operations. .Many Improvements and
extensions have already been post
poned, and it is a serious question In
the minds of conservative managers
whether it will lie either possible or
good policy to maintain the high rates
of dividends which have recently been
paid, especially in view of the very
low prices at which many excellent
stocks are selling.
Now that the panic in over and
sober view is taken of current events,
the question is ronstantiy asked:
What caused tho crash? The answer
is necessarily a difficult one, because
the causes worn ninny and complex.
The main reason, however, has been
that of geenml overdoing. Credit was
over extended: speculation was ex
cesslve and 111 advised: expansion of
every sort was being carried to excess
b over-confidence, until finally the
country's floating capital was prac
tically exhausted through being turn
ed too rapidly from liquid Into fixed
forms. We have only to glance at the
demands uK)ii new capital during the
past year or two to realize this act.
During the first ten months of thi
cuiit-nt year, tln amount of new se
curities authorized amounted to over
$1, 7.-0. nno.i iM). cf which at least $1
OiMi.Ono.ooo was actually ined. These

The easier conditions which ilevel
oped in the stock market also pro
duced a better feeling in mercantile
circles. The latter, however, still feel
the general restriction of credit which
the banks appear compelled to en
force. Our commercial markets are
ail more or les unettled by the tend
ency towards lower price! s It. Is gen
erally ' recognized that the various
markets have entered into a period
of readjustment which, though less
violent and radical than what, has
occurred on the Stock Exchange, must
neverthelos be anticipated ami dealt
with according to developments. The
mercantile situation fortunately, finds
itself in much sounder condition am)
better able to meet, the reaction, than
did. the stock market. 1 no tee
ft-w cases of ever production, and
there is a general disposition to avoid
such a contingency by a prompt shut
ting, down of mills when that seems
advisable. Quite a number of hands
have already been unfortunately
thrown out of 'employment in conse
quence, though the percentage of un
employed Is not yet important and is
being kept, down by unusual emigra
tion to the Mediterranean ports this
full.. If reaction is to como in the
merchandise markets, and that seems
likely, it promises to be more gradual
land more easy toguard against than
was the case in the financial markets.
Before very long we will unques
tionably see much easier conditions
prevail in the money market. Aboe
$100,000,000 of gold has been en
gaged or imported; there has been a
large expansion in bank currency anil
the recent measures of relief initiated
by the Government , will insure a re
dundant currency or morn or less

stimulated by an excessive and rigid
currency supply, being an Important
stimulus to such an efflux.
Next week Congress opens and the
President's message Avill be awaited
with unusual interest. It Is fully ex
pected that his remarks will bo more
assuring than they have been iu the
past. Currency legislation will un
doubtedly le one of, the most active
subjects of . dUcusbiou this winter,
and it is to be sincerely , hoped . that
ideas will bo followed which ha vti. the
support of scientific authorities and
actual experience. The chlet difficulty
Ju securing p, scientific and elastic
currency system will be the ignor
ance and consequent multiplicity of
Ideas which prevail on the subject.
As a rule, the number of. remedies
proposed is iu proportion to the Ignor
ance of the doctors. I'nfortunately,
there is scarcely any subject sq lit
tle understood and yet so vital to the
welfare of tho country. Congress
badly needs a sane and strong loader
in behalf of sound currency legisla
tion. Short, sales in the stock mar-
kit should be avoided hereafter, ex

Mistakes of Drug Clerks.
"There is one. loss sustained by
druggist that very few people know
about," said the experienced clerk
"That is In the prescriptions that have
to be made over, the same as clerks,
stenographer, writers and artists, no
matter how painstaking. . frequently
have to do Ihcir work over. The most
careful drug clerk In existence is
bound to make mistakes sometimes in
measuring and mixing.
"He may pour in too much of some
kind of liquid or sift in too much of
a certain iniwdcr. In most cases the
overdose would not really affect the
value of the medicine, but the con
scientious clerk Isn't . going to take
any chances of murdering anybody, so
he throws away the whole , mixture
and makes up another prescription."

The Inventive Intellect of
Mrs. Peavy
"I wish we were rich,'" suld Mr.
Peavy. :" '
And having delivered himself of this
original remark, recited with an In
finite depth of feeling, b looked over
at Mrs. Peavy and sighed.
"Well, Paul," said' Mrs. Peavy, put
ting aside her needlework and folding
her hands on the table, "how can we
get rich?';
"That's' it," said Mr. Peavy, laugh
ing bitterly. "How?"
"Let's think It out," said Mrs. Pea-
j vy In her practical manner. "How do
people get rich?
"That's It again," complained Mr,
Peavy. "How?"
"There's1 Mr. Hockefeller," mused
frs. Peavy. "How did he make his
money?"
"In ihe oil business."
"Well," she said, smiling brightly,
"It's an old saying thnt what one man
has done another caii do. Isn't there
some way you can start in the oil busi
ness, Paul?" . - '..
"Not on the same scale," said Paul.
"It all depends on the' scale, you
know." ' '
"Very well, tl 1 much for the oil
business. Now, what about the meat
trust? Could you start a meat, trust,
Paul'?"'"' .' '," ;
"It takes too much capital," sighed
Mr. Peavy. "Von must think of some
thing that requires no capital. That's
what yon want to think" of."
"Then," cried Mrs. Peavy, more
brightly than ever, "we niust invent
something, Paul."
"Yes, yea," said Paul, "but what?"
And from that moment the Peavy
family moved about, wrapped Iq
thought, and when Mf. Peavy went
down to fetch tb coal he stood on
the stairs with the coalhod in his hand
for five full minutes grappling wllh
the genesis of thought. He pulled
himself together with a start, know
ing that Mrs. peavy was waiting for
the coal, hut. when he . entered Ihe
kitchen he found that ady in a rev
erie, with the stove lifter in her hand.
"Paul," she said, her voice shaking
Slightly. "I believe I've got it.''
"IX) you?" asked Paul in jealousy. ,
"Yeg," she said. "I , really believe
I've got it. I really believe I have."
"What is it. then?" asked Paul, and
ho sat down like a man who Is golus
to have much real enjoyment In ex
ploding a theory. ,
. "Paul," she said. "I'd rather not tell
you now. I bplieve it ,w.oti,ld. be ..un
lucky. I'll try it., firsts ; and ,,'if
works" . ' , .-. ,
, She fell Into , a . . reverie again
(though with a look on, her face that
was almost smugness) and sheaecmeil
to be so full of ber inspiration that
she might have stood for, a tableau of
."JCmbodied Thought." and when she
put the coal cn the fire it didn't ap
pear to be Mrg. Peavy who was doing
tho act, but creative force, and when
s,he shook the stove down a few mo
uienta later, it was as though, invent,
ive , Intellect were shaking obstacles
out' of its path., , ' .. ;.
"Yes," she said, firmly, "I'm sure I
have It sure'"
"Is it a manufactured article?"
asked Mrs. Peavy,
"Er yes," she allowed.
"Mineral?" asked .Mr. Peavy,
"No."
"Animal?"
"No." .
"Vegetable?"
"Now, Paul, .you mustn't aU me
any more questions. v If It works you
shall see it .to-morrow jlht. Now,
that's all I'm-going to tell you."
"I'm," said Mr. Peavy; 'a manu
factured article, vegetable substance
Is it a luxury?', . ,t
Put to this and all subsequent ques
tions Mrs. IVavy answered, never a
s-prd, but prewrved a silence so irii
futlng and yet withal so itorientoua
and mvaiifylng that whin Paul came
home next night his first words were:
' Well, did It work?,'" , , ,
"Did It!" cried Mrs. Peavy, her eyes
shining . "Hut you , must . hay your
suppT first, Paul, and then' I'll show
you."
"And is It a go?" askd Mr.
IVavy, sitting dwn, "honestly and
tru'v?"
"Is It!" she cried. "Paul! How
much. dos It cost to take one of thos
tours arouod the world?"
"O. a lot of money' said Mr., Peavy.
Why?" '"''.''
"O. nothing!" she said; .her eyes
sparkling. . "Ton eat. your soup! . .
Do you like those treat big automo

"I mouldn't iiiIikL" said Mr. Peevy.
