LARGER VOLUME OF TRADE I. li.-ut More Active Than Ln.t Week. Wrxtcrn Iteceiiil. Larite Despite DlHpo.ltlnn to Hold Back Crop. Lnut Uunrtcr'n Failure.. New York. Oct. 15. R. G. Dun & Co.'t weekly review of trade says: With actual payments through clear ing houses 19.2 per cent larger than in the some week of 1S92, It cannot be said that business Is in any sense falling off, and yet many are complaining because the amount realized as profit is smaller than was formerly realized in good times. The man who sold $10,000 worth of products had a profit of perhaps $1,000 In 18."2, and yet he sells $12,000 worth of the same product in 1S98 and is not hap py because his profits are but $600. But in almost every branch of business trade is now transacted on a narrower margin of profit than in any other time of fair prosperity. There is a great change, and perhaps a permanent one, in the percentage of profits derivable from trade and manufacture as well as In the profits obtainable by transport ers. Progressive civilization calls for a lower range of profits and of prices, as the volume of business transacted In creases in order to make possible a gen eral Improvement in the condition of the working millions. The wheat business Is more active, with prices about 1V4 cents higher for spot and half a cent for the December option. Very heavy purchases have been made within the past few days, not as yet reflected in the official record of shipments, but the exports from both coasts, flour Included, have been 4,101, 770 bushels against 4,886,015 for the same week last year. It is especially interesting that, in spite of the general disposition of farmers to hold back their wheat, the western receipts have been for the week much larger than last year, and for two weeks 20,790,495 bushels against 16,696,654 last year. While little attention is now paid to the official reports, it Is noticeable that they seem to foreshadow a larger re turn for the crop than has been made in any previous year. The price of corn has advanced about 2 cents, though the receipts are Just now larger than a year aa-o. No Plot. Paris Oct. 15. The Anti Revolution ist papers regard the reported discovery of a military plot against the govern ment as a pure invention. They declare that the French gener als agree that their duly is absolute obedience to the government, and class the affair as a conspiracy with conspira tors. In spite of this tho papers which an nounced the conspiracy insist upon the evaelncss of their information, Monument Unveiled. Boston, Oct. 15 The ceremony of unveiling the statuo of Rufus Choatc at the new Court House here to-day brought here a company of judge, lawyers. archbishops and statesmen from this and other states which has seldom been equalled in this city. Benjamin D. Jlydo unveiled and pre sented the statue to tho city. Mayor Quincy accepted and delivered it to the justices of the Supreme Court. Chief Justices Field accepted it in behalf of he iustices. The oration was delivered by Joseph II. Choate, of New York, a nephew of Rufus Choole.' The erection of the statue was made possible by the lato George B. Hybe who left a legacy of fourteen thousand dollars for that purpose. CAN USE SPRING WATER. Tn mntinr of snrinsr water injunctions. A hearing came up before Chancclor Start at Montpelier this morning to modify injunction, if necessary, so that the Ladies Federation Club, who are improving the Park might connect spring water with tho new drinking fountain '-which the ladies ' club are arrainging to place in the park. The Chancelor deewea, aiier iiearmS Ihe parlies, that the injunction does not cover tho park nor any part thereof.
