the communii'atioii of thia Oregon
correspondent. lie mentions prl
vate business adviws received from
Australia haying that nineteen mil
lion jxiunds of wind are held there
awaiting free admisMion into the
I'nited 8tats, which is expected as
sK)ii as coiignNH meets. That i
iilKiut liins' times the average annual
product of California for the last 20
years, and considerably over one
third the average of the United
Stales for that eriod. What will be
the result to our wool growers If this
Australian stock is piled upon our
market? Then there will be a year
ly product of nearly 400,(100,000
to follow, of which a considerable
portion will of course lie diverted to
our shores, although the bulk has
heretofore gone to the United King
dom. It is held that this storing of
wool was one of the immediate causes
of the rtss-nt bank failures in Aus
tralia. Of course, it was not the
chief cause, but such a locking up of
nijiit.il would certainly affect the
financial situation, especially at a
critical time. The evil effects of
Ix-mneratic success are indeed far
reaching. .S. K. Rulletin.
The South Feel It.
The Smith, the great free-trade
Southern wet ion of the country, has
felt and is fisding the disasterous
t'fTects brought iiX)ii the country by
the ehs-tion of a free-trade President
and a free-trade Congress. The
jsHiple there are leginning to clamor
that "tin; McKinley tariff should be
left alone." It would sts?m, then,
that industries are tieing built up in
the Suith, that mauufactoris have
Usn cstablisheil there, that workmen
have Usn emjiloyetl earning wages
sieut there to build up and improve
that section of the country ; in short,
it apienrs tliat the South feels that
protection is absolutely necessary for
the maintenance of its existing
condition for progress and prosjierily.
We are glod of this j the more the
South takes to building up, the more
etvsntinl it w ill find protection to be.
The following from the Wilmington,
IV'I., Xews, August 31, shows it:
The merchants are holding back In
giving orders; the manufactures are
dtvreasing their output and dis
charging men j the idle workmen
are withdrawing their havings, put
aside for a "rainy day," from the
savings banks ; the morchanta are
not dcMsiting as much money as
usual in banks owing to a falling off
of sales; foreign manufacturers are
flooding our markets with goods in
order to get a fisjthold here in an
ticipation of free-trade. This Is the
secret of the whole trouble. The
McKinley tariff should be let alone.
Iron (aslng for Pillar.
In building the new government
quarantine station at Diamond
Point near Port Townsed, Wash.,
the government will cause the lower
portion of the piles to be encased In
a cast iron cover to protect them
from the ravages of the toredo. The
castings are 14 inches in diameter
and some are 3. feet long and weigh
C.0O0 pounds. There are to be thirty
six of these poles, and the casings are
now leing cast by a foundry on the
Sound at the rate of two a day. This
will tie the fir it wharf of tho kind to
be built on Puget Sound. The plan
is to drive the piling timber and then
slip the iron casting over them,
filling in each one w ith cement, and
it is believed that there will be
practically no end to the service of
the pil" so constructed. It is
thought that the cement will even
tually liccome so hardened as to
nsdst wear of the elements and the
boring of the toredo, even when iron
has worn away, and it will likely
hud to the construction of similar
wharves at other port on the Sound
There are employes mean enough

The grocer had to admit that he
"Well, I will tell you about it. It
was there that we had the funnv ex

we didn't apiear to hear none of the

was none of our business, we jlst
kep a flrin' till the whole 700 shells
was fired. Then we stopjied and
waited for mornin'. With the risiu'
of the sun the fog nateraly lifted
all of a suddent. Then there begun
the da rudest racket in that reliel
camp that ever greeted the ears of
man. An' what do you suppose it
was? Them there shells hadn't lit

all lodged up on the top of the fog;

"Gosh I no."
'Maybe you'll think I'm a liar;

Rradstreets, commenting on the
gold shipments from Europe to
Gold shipments from Euroe to
this country on an unexiiectedly
large scale have !een the salient
feature in the financial situation this
week. Upwards of fldjOOO.OOO is in
progress of transfer from the Rank of
England and other European sources
of supply, the movement having
been rendered jossible by the hivy
foreign buying of securities and
brendstuffs on the decided breaks
which have lately occurred In our
markets. Another important devel
opment Is the tendency of national
banks to take out additional circula
tion, to which forced sales of govern
ment bonds by savings institutions
have given a further impetus. Wall
street, prompt as usual to discount
the future, has already exhibited its
belief in the beneficial influence of
these factors, the fears of the over
grown speculative lear Interest add
ing force to the upward tendency of
stock values. This is the more not
iceable because the actual effects of
either gold Imports or of increased
bank circulation are necessarily sub
ject to delay. At the moment the
most disturbing feature in the posi
tion is the scarcity of actual currency
resulting from the steady absorption
ol funds which has been in progress
since the subsistent distrust made its
appearance, and which has now at
tained a degree calculated to serious
ly aggravate the distress of financial
and buslneas Interests, even If, as Is
to bo hoped, it Is the last develop
ment in the case and the precursor of
a return to normal conditions.
Why She Was Sorry.
f From th Detroit Free Pres1
He had been worshiping her for
months, but had never told her, and
she didn't want him to. He had
come often and staid late, very late,
and fthe could only sigh and hope.
He was going away the next day on
his snmmer vacation and he thought
the last night was the time to spring
the momentous question. He kept it
to himself, however, until the last
thing. It was 11:30 by t lie clock and it
was not a very rapid clock. " Miss
Mollie," he said tremulously, "I am
going away to-morrow." "Are
you?" she said with the thought
lessness of girlhood, as she gnzed
wistfully at the clock. "Yes," he
replied. "Are you sorry ?" "Yes,
very sorry," she murmured. "I
thought you might go away this
Then she gated at the '
clock wistfully and lie tobl her good
HOW A It 1 Ma Kl X WAS STOPPED.
Washington t"in furnish some!
storic of the depression. There is a j
very wealthy and Very nervous lady 1
here who drew 3no,UOO out of aj
bank. Having gut the big bundle of.
money she did not know w hat to do
w ith It. So she rented a box in
vault of the bank and put the money
into it. And there It lies olsjut 20
ft-et distant from where it was before
the lady drew her c heck.
One Washington bank has had a
run, aud the suddenness with which
that run colliip-ed was funny. A
man w ho had been refused a lxtn
went among department clerks ami
advised tin in to take their money
out of an institution which is largely
iwtroiiized by that clas of deposit
ors, ho at the noon nsit the clerks
flocked into the bank with their
books. The prcsjileiit is a gissl dind
of a talker, lie is much in demand
where ready sssh making is
wanted. When he saw that crowd
of excitisl men and women come up
to his Lank window he ordered all
businesji stnicd, walked out into
the mllst of the throng and climlied
on a table.
"My friends," lie snid, in that
same easy manner with which he
harms a Sunday school or a citizens'
mass mi etinir. -this run is scnt less.
and while the deisisitors of this in -
stitution are in sch a disturbs!
mental condition 1 do not consider
they are fit to trun-act their own
business, and this company is much
betterahleto look after their interests
than they are themselves. Rut I
appreciate the int'onvenieiiiv that
may arise in some cases from an in
ability of dels isi tors to get hold of
some ready money, and as I under
stand that a large number of these
depositors want to get funds to start
for the World's Fair tomorrow I w ill
say that any such who present their
checks will get their money at once.
Rut you had letter be careful, for
there was one woman who came
down here on Saturday in a state of
panic and afier drawing out ,.00,
which was all she had, went home
and died of heart disease. I sis?
some of you looking rather pale now,
and I would advise you to go slow."
The crowd chuckled and dwindled
away. Tho run was over. It has
not leen resumed.
The excitement was prolatbly the
shortest livisl of any during the
present panic, but while it lasted it
was hysterical, t ne agitabsl woman
filled out a check for her balance,
and stood with poised pen looking at
the blank line for her signature.
For a minute and a half crplcxity
was expis'ssisl in her face; then she
turned toiin acquaintance and t"'ggsl
her to tell her her own name.
Washington banks show the third
highest reserve of the cities of
tho country. Where so much
ready money is turned loose as
is the case through the government's
disbursement of salaries it is almost
impossible for a scarcity of currency
to exist. Xews Rciiort.
An Iowa tilrl.
It is said that a Marshalltown, Iowa
girl has taken a novel way of decid
ing between three lovers. She wrote
their names on as many eggs, w hich
a faithful hen is now trying to warm
into life, aud the young man whose
name is on the egg w hich hatches
'first will secure the prize, heart and
hand. It's a (use in which the hen
has the moit serious part of the per
formance considering the weathtr.
This girl certainly "has a hen on,"
and it may truly Is- said that the
man who wins will lie henpecked
from the start.
