I.aat year wheat brought a dollar
a bushel in Chicago. The gold men
said tho advance in price was due
to the IngUlltlonoJ Mr Jieod'H Con
jjrem and tho silver men attributed
the advance in price to the failure
of the grain crop in the great w heat
producing countrieH of BOfOfM and
Asia. Now wheat for the future
delivery in Helling in Chicago at 00
renU per DOS be, though Mr Kced
still rules OoDgNM.
Heretofore war caused an ad
vance in the price ofcerealr; now
with 215,000 men changed from
producers to conHUim rn thero is a
material decline in the prico of
wheat, though the laws enacted by
Mr Keed's CongreifH last year re
main unchanged. BeCAUai 01
scarcity of breadHtufTn in Europe
bi,.t yoir the gold men ridiculed the
idea that tho prico of nilver had
any connection with ihe price ot
wheat or OOttOD. Now in the linn
of war wheat goes down to meet
silver, until an ounce of the while
metal anil a buahel of wheal com
mand very nearly the MOM price,
aB they did fr yeiirs before the
failure of the grain crop in India
and the Argentine Con.eclcnition.
Tho remonelizalion of silver would
benefit tho farmer as much as the
miner as the prico of s bushel of
wheat, einco India and South
America became exporters of that
grain, and silver wan demonetized,
always ail van 'fd or declined with
silver, oxcept in rare iiiHtaneeH
when wars or crop failures caused a
scarcity of tho grain.
HAY AM) ILECTR1C1TT.
The decrease in tho consumption
of hay, caused by tho displacement
of horses, is estimated, in U is, in
our leading cities as follow:
Philadelphia, (iO.OOO; Chicago, 50,
000 to 75,000; (i router New York,
40,000; Haltiuiore, 2.1,000; 8t Louis,
10,000; Cincinnati, 10 000; Rich
mond, Ya, 15,000; Toledo, 0, 15,
000. Allowing that each work
horHO requires fifteen pounds of hay
per day, the displacement of tho
above number murks a ilecroas i in
consumption of over 1,300 tons per
day. Add t this tho horses Jis
placed in other cities and you will
understand why thu bay track
iB nol as a rule as active as it w in u
lew years ago. The California
drought is the cause of tho revival
in tho hay market at tho present
Indications are that the Hamoan
islands will soou b partitioned be
tween Kngland Germany and the
United HiaUs. The United States

facilities that are wanteTJ. Tu
