Mexico Takes 8teps to Improve Sit

Mexico, May 18. f.lmantour, tho sec
retary of tho treasury, Mng Inter
viewed concerning current rumor
about tha Intention of tho government
to tnka soino positive and active meas
ure to improvo tho financial situation,
limited himself to saying that tho only
measure proposed by tho government
for any such purposo will bo presented
to congress for its Action, and consist
in abolishing the duties on the expor
tation of hemp, for tls encouragement
of it producer In YuenU- The see
retary addedt "In reality, our economic
situation doc not Inspire either anxiety
or fear of any etas. Thero ha never
been a period during the economic
stringency abroad and which ha affect
d the whold world, that there ha been
in Mexico a moment of the fear of a
panic or anything like it. Moreover,
the attention of. tho government of
Mexico to the financial condition Is not
n thing of today or yesterday. It be
gins always at the first sign of an epoch
of stringency in any of the money cen
ters of tho world; and tbl constant
vigilance has never ceased. The gov
eminent, watching affairs in tbo money
world, docs not bcliove nny extraordi
nary measures nro necessary In 'the
present situation. Tho normal con
dition Is everywhere ro-cstablltocd, nnd
our banks, following my instruction,
have maintained a system of circum
spection and caution, limiting their op
eratinns to Affair that offer ample se
curities. The solidity of our banks is be
yond doubt, nnd they are in a condition
to meet whatever contingency. The fact
that business condition in Mexico att
improving dally is very atisfaetory to
tho government, and our financial con
nections, though thero ha never been
hero grave fear of trouble. We are
like an individual, wbo suffers an at
tack of indigestion, which doe not en
danger hi life of health, but for th
moment annoys and takes away bis ap
petite, obliging him to let his stomach
rest a little. This rott is, in both
cases, tho only remedy necessary, efH
caeious and beneficial."
