Production of Salt in 1004.
The reported product! of salt In the United
States during 1004 was 22,080.002 barrels (of
260 pounds), valued at 16,021,222, as pa red
with 1S.08S.0S8 barrels valued at isG.3S,
In 1808. This is Ue largest production ever
reported, except In 1082, hut the average net
jrtco par barrel 127.882c) is tower Utan that
reported la 198 (27.S7Sc) or In any previous
year, with the exception of 1002. when the
average net price realized was only 28.790c
The mont noteworthy feature of the year
1004 was the increase ef 1.198,629 barrets in
the preeuctton of rock salt. TM Increase
was due in large part to the expansion ef the
salt industry of Louisiana, where reek salt
Is oeslty and cheaply mined In the "mounds"
wMch occu r in the sow thorn part of the state.
' The oMef salt-producing states are New York
and Michigan, and the combined output of
these two Mates amounts to about two-thirds
f the total production of the United State.
The five leading salt-producing MateA during
1004 were: New York. 8, 90. 60S barrels 189.04
per" cent); Michigan. 5.425,994 barrel (24. J
per cent); OWe, 2,485,828 barreia (11. IS per
cent); Kaaeas, 2.101.S19 barrel- (8.81 per
eentj, and LeHiMajia, 1,009,620 barrels 4.7
per cent. '
The aeteal eenmtmptlon of salt In 2004 was
28,1 18.X 71 barrels, or aheut 2.4 S times what tt
was 4.1 1SS9.

Washington Crop Report.
The Washington weekly crop report say m
The warm weather wan beneficial to corn;
tomatoef, melons and hops. Corn has seldom
done so well as it has this season, particu
larly eweot corn In the western counties.
Hops have made very satisfactory develop
ment; the burrs are now of fair die and
growing well. The incect pests are under con
trol. Melons are being pfejeped In great quan
tity and of excellent quality from the Yakima,
countr'. Early potatoes have done well, but
the dry weather Is having a bad effect en the
late crop. Root crops, especially beets, are
doing well. Gardens are suffering from lack
of moisture, and apples and prunes are drop
ping quite badly from the effects of the heat.
Pasture, particularly on uplands, are becom
ing very short and dry. The weather is alt
that could, be desired for the harvesting of
grala. Winter wheat cutting is nearly com
pleted, and considerable threshing has been
done, with very good yielda both in quantity
and quality. The cutting of Spring wheat is
well along; probably three-fourths dene, ex
cept in late localities. In some of which It
will linger until the end of the month. From
present appearances the yield will be a medium
one. of excellent quality, the falling off from
the early expectations of an unusually large
yield being due to the Injury from not winds,
which in some districts -was considerable. In
other districts, howevor. there was little or
no Injury, and In such cases the yield will be
heavy. The warm weather ripened oats rap
idly. Cutting is well along, except en the
lowlands of Skagit County, where It has only
fairly begun. The crop protalaea to be a very
good one. although not unusually heavy.

PREPONDERANCE OF GAINS.
Advance In Union Pacific Slump in
National- Biscuit a Dis
NEW YORK, Aug. 16. There was a" pre
ponderance of gains again today in the move
meat of prices on the exchange. The mar
ket, neverthelres. continued spotty and un
even. For mznt time after the opening there
was a broad activity In the market which
enabled traders to operate In and out with
faculty and t-wept up & further large volume
of Mies to realize profits without any notable
effect on the price level, London discounts
hardened again today and buying for the ac
count of that center was not in evidence In
the absorptive power of the market. There
was a marked decline in animation after the
working off of orders accumulated over night
In comml:zlon-houjes. The market then re
lapsed Into Its professional character.
The vitality of the rumors regarding the
Northern Securities group seems proof against
all delays and disappointment-). Its renewed
Influence was seen today In the rise In Union
Pacific which would benefit largely by the
enhanced valuation of Great Northern and
Northern Pacific. The revived and successful
speculation In Reading up to a new record
level had a notable effect In encouraging
The slump In National Biscuit, which la
supposed to be due to differences of opinion
over Its financial administration, which threat
ens a rupture, -was of a disturbing character,
but was without effect on the market. The
Corn Products stocks had the benefit of the
reported ending of severe competition In the
glucose market. The rise In the Locoxnotlvo
clocks had a sustaining effect In the railroad
equipment group. The large demand for
Amalgamated Copper after Its prolonged In-
ertia removed one of the repressive Influences
on the market, but the United States Steel
stocks remained impassive. The market
broadened materially In the late trading and
the closing was distinctly strong.
