Chinese anil Japanese Trade.
Recently Tirn Astokian re
ferred hopefully to the increasing
demands in China and Japan for
productions of the Pacific coast as
a stimulant to renewed efforts on
the part of our producers. To our
groat surprise the San Francisco
Bulletin informs us that "we can
not expect to make much headway
in extending our trade with Hong
kong. Tt is not the Chinese who
are taking our Jlour at that point.
"Were that the case the demand
might be developed to an indefi
nite degree, provided we could
sell wheat cheaper than it could
be raised in China. It is European
population at Hongkong and in
China (says the Bulletin man) that
takes the bulk of the flour there,
and the number is limited." This
is very remarkable language for
the Bulletin. It is absurd. What
is the white or European popula
tion in Hongkong or China that
could consume even a single cargo
of the flour that the Pacific coast
ships to that country every year?
According to the Bulletin, we
shipped to Hrngkong in 1SS0,
234,332 barrels of flour. For sev
eral years past the French.govern
ment ordered from Saigon three
times a year GGG barrels extra
strong bakers flour. Formerly
this was sent in barrels lined with
paper, French style, but of late
years quarter sacks have been sub
stituted. With this exception, the
bulk of our flour sent to Iloim-
kong is shipped by Chinese mer
chants, and is by their own coun
trymen consumed in the Celestial
empire. "Only a small percentage
of the flour exported to China con
sists of extra. The vcrv fact that
a large portion of the flour shipped
to China consists of superfine, and
that too of the very lowest grades,
is conclusive evidence that the
Chinese themselves are larjrelv
substituting it for rice, and this is
also the case in this country, the
resident Chinese here censuming:
considerable flour. This flour
trade with Chin is steadily in
creasing not a U'umcr leaves
San Francisco for Hongkong that
does not carry thousands of bar
rels. The British steamship Na
ples lately took a cargo f flour
for that port, 1 lie freight of which
was $S per ton. We do not see
the policy of underrating our ex
port trade with China, as is exhib
ited of late years by a portion of
the press of California, as well as
by government ofiieials at Well
ington. The Herald and Review
Of provisions pi oper, including
canned meats, vegetables and
fruit, but not sugar, the United
States sent to Japan hiring the
3ear ending June 30, ISiK), in
value 70,1S9, as compared with
&40,G14 raised m Japan itself,
3S,000 imported lrom Great
Britain, $7,000 from France and
2,000 from Germain'. By far the
greater portion of butter used in
Japan is brought from the United
States. American merchants in
Japan estimate that lulij- eighty
per cent, of supplies of that kind
come from the United States. An
article of tinned butler prepared
in Boston, is being introduced and
pronounced excellent. Mr. Van
Buren gives the following warn
ing relative to canned goeds: 4Most
of the tinned meats, vegetables
and fruits used in Japan are from
the United States, and while much
of it is excellent, man' complaints
have been made of receiving an
inferior article. Nothing will
prove more fatal to this particular
trade in the east than in sending
here any of these manufactures
that are not of the best. The trade
may be largely increased and good
prices obtained; but if the com
plaints I refer to are frequently
repeated, the importation from the
United States will largely cease,
and the fact will have an evil effect
upon other branches of our com
merce in this country."
Mr. Villard says that within two
years the new company will have
two thousand miles of railway in
operation west of the Rocky
mountains. This is an important
announcement, if it is backed up
by action. Its importance is all
the 'greater when it is considered
that as business makes business,
so railroads make railroads.

payment, at the rale of Sa 00 for each

you may send to us, with the cash in ad
vance of course, for one year.

Wall street is depressed in con
sequence -of trunk-line manipula
tion. There is nothing in the gen
eral condition of trade, industries
or crops which bodes disaster, or
which is discouraging, and the
situation is more dependent on
Vanderbilt than on anything else.
A Washington correspondent
interviewed the presidents nurse,
who said the president remarked a
few daTs after the shooting that if
it was not for the pain in his feet
he would not know what ailed him.
He told the plrysicians, "I will
stand all the pain but you must
stand all the worry; I can't stand
both," and since then he has stuck
to the agrcoment.
Something like a panic in Paris
has been caused by the official an
nouncement that in consequence
of the phenomenally hot weather
prevailing, the water supply is
running short. At best of times
it is utterly inadequate to meet
the wants of the populace. The
whole water supply of the city
amounts to 3SO,000 cubic inches
daily, and it will be probably six
years before the existing state of
tilings can be remedied.
Pat. Garrett, the sheriff in pur
suit of Billy the Kid, got his man
at fort Sumner, 120 miles distant
on Pocose river, at 1:30 last Sat
urday morning. His first shot
took effect in the Kids head. Had
his first shot failed he would have
been riddled with bullets, as the
Kid is known to have been terri
blv desperate and very accurate
in aim when in close quarters. His
death is hailed with great joy, as
he had sworn to kill several promt
nent citizens, and had already slaiu
fifteen or eighteen men.
