THE MONEY GLUT.
Bradstreet's Journal calls attention to
that feature of the existing financial sit
uation in all the principal commercial
countries usually described as the glut
of: money. It is a phenomenon in
finance for which no one has an explan
ation. It often occurs that there is a
temporary monetary; congestion and
money will gather to the financial centers
for a specific purpose. It frequently
happens that in anticipation of a big
loan or of some great enterprise that is
about to be inaugurated money will be
called in and there will be a temporary
glut, but it doesn't last long. . In the
present instance, howevey, - there is no
special object in view, and no particular
cause can be assigned. It has been a
glut of long duration, nor does the end
of the situation seem to be in sight.
Several attempts have been made in
London and New York to institute a
speculative movement which would fur
nish temporary employment for these
accumulations, but in each it proved a
failure. "The money would not go out,
it could not be forced out, but has con
tinued to pile up until the banks are
actually tired of holding it. As com
pared with this time a year ago, the
Bank of England holds species to the
amount of $63,000,000 more than it held
last fall, and altogether there is now
about $200,000,000 lying idle in its vaults.
The reserves of the Bank of France have
increased $40,000,000 within the last
year, while the increase in the holdings
of the German Reischbank are but little
under that amount. We know what a
. glut there has been in New York and in
ether Eastern cities. According to the
last report of the associated banks of
New York there was an increase of $96,
000,000 in the cash reeerves during the
year, and there is now an idle surplus ot
over $60,000,000 in spite of the revival of
demands for money to move the. grain
crop. In short, money is a drug in
every financial center of the world, and
bas been for more than a- year. - It is
now the most unproductive property
that a person can own. : With its vaults
filled to overflowing the Bank of Eng
land has been compelled to cut down its
dividend because it was impossible to
find profitable employment for its ac
cumulations. - Perhaps there has never
been a time in the' history of the world
when such grossly abnormal financial
conditions existed.- This prolonged glut
of money is in the nature of a freak. It
is so far out of the usual order of things
that financial experts confess their in
ability to furnish an explanation or to
predict what the end will be. Telegram
BAPTISTS AND HOPS.
The Northwestern Baptist Associa
tion, which has associated with it the
Baptist churches of Western Washing
ton and British Columbia, 75 in all, in
session at Centralia, Wash.,- almost
unanimously adopted this preamble and
"Whereas, A large portion of the
fertile land of this convention field is
devoted to the culture of hops for brew
ing purposes ; and
"Whereas, A large number of the
members of our churches are receiving
the greater portion of their financial in
comes from hop culture ; therefore be it
"Resolved, That it is the sense of this
convention that the raising of hops, bar
ley or other cereals for brewing or dis
tilling purposes is an alliance with the
saloon and Satan in his worn of ruin
and damnation, with which no disciple
of Christ oueht in anv wav to he con
nected." . : i
Without going into the merits or de
merits of the saloon question, it strikes
ns that the good people who passed ftie
above resolutions would sooner take a
prize for aggressiveness than for judg
ment or reason. It is true that hops
are used for making beer, and that it
could not be made without them, but it
also true that they are used for many
. purposes. ' If it is wrong to grow a crop
because that crop may be put to use?
that certain persons do not approve of,
then the wrong will have to continue or
the population will have to die. Corn,
wheat rye, sugarcane and beets are all
used in the manufacture of alcohol, yet
surely even so fanatical a lot as those at
Centralia would hardly insist that it was
unchristian to grow these articles.
Money is used to gamble with, to bribe
with , to tempt to crime and clear the
criminal at Jeast to; as large an. extent
as it .is in missionary work, yet surely
Jor that reason our friends of Centralia
would not advocate the destruction of
, To go further, we might add that bad
men sometimes join the Baptist church,
jast as they do other denominations or
societies, and so as far as their ; example
is concerned, bring religion into disre
pute; but because of this should our
Centralia friends insist upon the de
struction of all men or the cessation of
all religion? Most assuredly not.
Detective Joe Day of Portland is the
only one who has caught onto a genuine
clue to the robbery here. He has found
a man who dreamed he saw the whole
business. -, Saw the man who helped
carry the box in the office, whom he
minutely ' described, What gives Mr.
Day's discovery importance, and estab
lishes the guilt of the party named, is
the fact that not only did Detective
Day's man dream that he had seen the
robbery committed by the man who
helped carry the box into the office, but
be dreamed.it twice.
In less than three weeks the congres
sional elections will be over, and the
results will afford matter for basing
presidential predictions on. It seems
there, can be but one result, judging
from present indications, and that will
be an overwhelming republican victory.
The republican party is thoroughly or
ganized, is confident of victory, and ag
gressive. The democracy is demoralized
and on the defensive. The party has no
confidence in its ability, to win, and was
whipped before the fight commenced.
A new departure has been made in
France in the employment of glass
bricks for building' purposes. The
bricks are hollow, being blown like
bottles, and are given the shape that is
most readily laid, cubic, hexagonal or
otherwise, in the particular style of
building' for which they are intended.
They are made secure by the use of a
bituminous cement, with a base of
asphalt. A singular feature of these
bricks is that they do away with the
necessity of windows. They are good
insulators of humidity and noise, giv
ing protection against both cold and
heat, and by the modification of . their
form and color they can be made to
harmonize readily with the decocra
tions of any building. They are used
largely in meat markets in preference
to marble, and they are found specially
adapted for bath halls, hothouses,
hospitals, refrigerating establishments,
and, in fact, all buildings in which the
absence of windows would be an ad
vantage. Novel Suggestions.
Since Turpin's invention for destroy
ing an army wholesale the professor of
one of the principal colleges in Paris
has proposed to the French minister of
war that large blowflies should be bred
and lcept in large cages, being fed upon
blood placed .between . the. artificial
skin of lay figures dressed up in the
German uniform. When war was de
clared these flies would be rendered
venomous by feeding them on the sap
of tropical plants and taken to the
front in their cages, from which they
would be released, and make short
work of the enemy. Another patriot
suggests that dogs should be trained
to bite lay figures wearing the German
uniform, and that each soldier should
be accompanied by a dog in time of
war. ... , .
Elephants In Africa.
The elephant of Africa is still a
tolerably abundant animal. Its num
bers, though doubtless diminished by
more than one-half , within this
century,; are probably to be counted by
the hundred thousand. Nevertheless,
in less than one hundred years the
field which is occupied has been great

hunter and the sportsman, armed with
guns of ever-increasing deadliness, it
will srtainly not require another cen
