THE SUMPTER MINER
Shipments From There Be
Tbo sbinieuts of gold from
Australia to San Francisco aro becom
ing numerous. Tbo reason of sucb
shipments is a subject of much
curiosity. Why should gold be
.shipped via San Francisco? The real
reason is that it is less expensive to
ship gold from Australia to New
York or London via San Francisco
than it is to ship it dlrcet to either
of those cities. Of course, If the
ireo telegraphic transfer of the metal
from San Francisco to New York,
through the sub-treasury, were elim
inated, and the Ave days' interest
for the time required to transport
the gold overland from San Frnaolsco
to New York, wero taken into
account, Asutralia would probably
not send gold to Sau Francisco.
The reason for these Importations
of gold from Australia is the primary
fact that Australia owes the gold to
Englaud. Australia only sends gold
to England or to New York when it
is the cheapet form of remittance,
the principles being tho samo that
govern the export of uold from New
York to England or "any other coun
try. These transactions are usually tbo
result of a joint operation between
the London and New York and
Australian bankers and their agents
At San Franolsco. The merchant In
Austarlla with remittance to make
buy bis banker's draft on London.
The Autrallan banker covers the draft
or his balance thereon by a shipment
of gold to New York via San
Franolsco, or to tho latter place,
and the New York banker, in con
junction with bis San Franolsco
correspondent, arranges for Its trans
fer to New York. The New York
banker pays for the gold by remitt
ing sterling oxchango to Loudon, as
ho is doing at prexeut. If sterling
exobaugo hero is at tbo shipping
point the New York banker ships gold
to London to pay for the gold from
Australia. Thus it may happen that
exports of gold to London or Paris
may occur simultaneously with the
receipt of gold here from Australia.
But actually, in effect, the Importa
tions of gold from Austrlia are
precisely the samo as if they wero
recolved from Europe.
The gold from Australia is received
in tbo form of Australian sovorelgus.
They aro melted up iu San Francisco
and turned iuto United States bars
or coin. Their value Is telegrapbod
to Now York by tho United States
treasury. Thus the government is
enabled to iucreaso its gold boldliigs
at that point without expouse.
