EXPANSION IN STOCKS.
The iecer.t advance in stocks and
bonds in the market of Wall street,
lias been without precedent. The
number of shares sold has also been
in excess of all former figures. In
the past six months the bonds' and
stocks listed on the New York stock
exchange have advanced to the ex
tent of move than $000,000,000. No
such increase in values has ever oc
curred befoie in the United States in
an equal length of time.' For many
days past the sales of shares have
averaged more than 1,000,000 daily,
and no diminution in either the num
ber of sales or the extent of the ad-
vance in prices seems to be in sight.
Some of the more conservative in
vestors think there is danger that this
tremendous inflation of sales and
yalues will lead to a crash on the
stock exchange which will affect all
the speculative markets. In periods
of great business expansion the stock
market is always active. This is es
pecially true in instances like the
present when the expansion follows a
long period of trade stagnation.
Prices of speculative properties go
up to a level which can not be sus
tained, and then comes a setback.
Such an advance was in progress in
1881 when it was stooped by the
shooting of Garfield on July 2d of
that year. Then there was a reac
. Hon, which lasted until the latter
part of 1883. Another reverse took
place at the time of the failure of the
firm of Grant & Ward on May 14',
1884, and the next year saw a lower
range of prices. A Wall street flurry
more serious thun any of these took
place in November, 1890, at the time
of the collapse of Baring Bros. A
recovery from the effects of this re
verse did not come until 1892, about
twelve qjopUis before tbe great crash
occurred, following the announce
ment of the result of the presiJential
election of that year.
But no peril to general business is
to be apprehended from Wall street,
but a flurry in that quarter could not
fail to have a disquieting effect in
Europe, and diminish the flow of
money to this country for investment.
At present the country is experienc
ing the most solid business, activity
which it has ever known. Bank
clearances, railroad earnings and the
output of the iron and steel indus- j
tries nre greater than at aDy time
past. The outlook for many years of
industrial activity and general pros
perity is exceedingly bright. There
is an excuse in all these conditions
for the confidence which ia felt by
the public. It is easy, however, to
carry this feeling ot exuberance too
' far. This is an excellent time for the
display of a little moderation and
conservatism on the speculative ex
changes. While a reverse on Wall
street would not disturb legitimate
trade it would have temporarily at
least, an influence abroad which
might be disadvantageous to Ameri
can financial interests.
But ours is a great country, and
the spirit of expansion will probably
prevent any long continued ebb of
the forces that have set in.
The critical situation near Manila
will preclude the early mustering out
of the volunteers in the Philippines,
as was contemplated by the govern
ment, up to within a few Jays ago.
This will bring sadness to . many an
Oregon fireside, but this episode is
" one of the uncertain horrors of war.
The Oregon yolunteers now in the
Orient, on the other hand, will wel
come with pleasure an engagement
in regular warfare, for which purpose
they originally entered the service.
Most of these brave lads would have
greatly disliked returning home with
out a "brush" with an enemy of
Uncle Sam. While the war with the
Filipinos is not expected to be of
long duration, jret our boys will get
ample taste of the real meaning of
war before the close of hostilities. It
is .not reasonable to imagine that
Aguinaldo will give in at the first
serious repulse. He and his leaders
are a mercenary lot who ; expect to
gain large pecuniary profit ere they
surrender to Uncle Sam. A dicker
of this kind might possibly have been
made with Aguinaldo a month ago,
but now our demand will be nothing
short of an unconditional surrender,
though we may be' forced to send
75,000 troops to annihilate the entire
insurgent army and its sympathizers.
