CIS WHEAT TRADE.
About half a million more acres
have been sol to wln-at this year an
with a production like that of Jl880;
we would have a crop of seventy m
lion bn'hel.--, while Including Or"egon
and Washington there would
eighty million bushels, leaving a su
dIus of two million tons Una est
mate ni:iy however, from lack of ra
and other causes be reduced more
than a third. Two rratters closeh
connected with our wheat trade at
tract more than ordinary attention
one'is the proposed shipment by th
Southern Pacific Railroad. The road
is making great preparations and will
certainly carry the wheat of South
em California and what may be
giown by settlers in Arizona, New
Mexico, etc., but it is doubtful whelh
er the course of the San Francisco
wheat trade will be much affected
inasmuch as sailing vessels can carry
wheatfci.t 2 2s Gd per ton. The
other matter referred to is the intro
duction in our Produce Exchange of
the call system, in vogue in Chicago
and all 'over the East. This will in
fuse redoubled life into our wheal
market and will have the effect of
centering t :e wheat trade of the
coast as such, distinctively at Sin
Francisco. Sau Francisco Journal
The Yankee book agent will have
to taka a rear seat. In a small Ger
man town an inn-keeper, to get rid
of a book-peddler's importunities,
bought an almanac from him, and
pulling it in his packet left the imt,
his wife just then coming in to take
his place. The woman was then
persuaded to buy an almanac, not
knowing thai, her husband had one
already. The husband shortly re
turned, and discovering the trick
sent his porter to the railway etation
after the peddh-r, wilh a message
that he wanted to see trim on busi
ness. "Ob, yes," said the peddler,
"I kuow: he wants one of my alma
nacs, but I can't miss my train for
that. You can give tne a quarter
and take the almanac to him." The
porter paid the money and carried
a third almanac lo the iu:;-keeper.
Reagan of Texas is pressing in the
house of representatives his bill to
regulate i:iter-state commerco and
prohibit urju&t discriminations by
common carriers. The central idea
of the bill is embodied in a proposi
tion to make it unlawful for persons
engaged in transportation of property
by railroad from one state or terri
tory to another, to charge or receive
from one person any greater or less
amount of freight, compensation, or
reward tjian is charged or received
from any other person for the like
and contemporaneous service; and in
no case shall more compensation be
charged or received for carrying for
a shorter than for a longer distance
The bill is in the hands of the com
mittee on commerce.
Railroads In iflexieo.
Mexico is being gridironed with
railroads and when the Southern Pa
cific has had lines of communication
with them our trade with the South
em Republic may be expected to in
crease largely. If we can only se
cure reciprocity with Mexico and
Central Ameiican,"wo will bo in a
much better position still. Some of
the 1 ading men of the Central Amer
ica Rep il i -s will during the pres
ent year push the matter as well as
they can iy diplomatic effort. S. F.
Journal of Commerce.
Influence against the Hawaiian
treaty accumulates. The board of
trade and transportation of New
York, recognizing that the treaty
is detrimental to the public welfare,
approves the measure introduced in
congress for its abrogation.
Tonnage Bates Decline.
The decline in tonnage rate be
tween the Pacific coast and Europe
has come to pass, now that it is too
late to hi of much benefit to the
producers of Oregon.
