In 1872 the exports of prunes from
California amounted to nothing. So
rapidly has the industry grown since
that date that last year the exports of
this fruit from California reached 30,
000,000 pounds. Numerous orchards are
coming into bearing year by year, and
still more are being planted. This as
regards California. In conversation with
fruitmen from Oregon we find tliat or
chardists in certain sections of thal8tate
have caught the fever and are planting
prune trees by tens of thousands. So

Another attempt may yet be made to
rescue thesteam collier San Pedro, which
went ashore near Victoria nearly two
years ago. This time the Moran Bros,
of Seattle have taken the matter in
charge, and if they find that it will be
worth while to try and save the San Pe
dro, they will make one final effort to do
so. The Southern Pacific Railroad Com
pany, which is the owner of the San
Pedro, has, it is said, been in correspond
ence with the Moran Bros, for some time.
The company is anxious that the San
Pedro shall be saved. She cost nearly
(250,000, and it will lie a heavy loss to
the company if she is not recovered.
However, the company does not care to
upend a lot of money in removing the
collier from her present quarters and
then find that she has been down so
long as to become absolutely worthless.
In order to determine her value the
Southern Pacific has arranged with the
Moran Bros, to make a personal inspec
tion of her.

museum. Said Mr, Whitmore the other
night : " Both the collections are com
plete and large, the former being one of
the largest in the forestry building. Mr.
Suwa's is large and exceptionally will!
arranged and perfectly classified! Dr.
Niederlein, Commissioner from the Ar
gentine Republic, and lr. Hassler, Com
missioner from Paraguay, both have
splendid collections, which they have
given me to understand they would pre
sent to the city if they could lie assured
they would be' appreciated and cared for
as they deserve. No such collection of
forest products has ever More been
shown as is now in this exhibit, either
from domestic or foreign sources. 1 have
discussed the matter with others among
foreign exhibitors, and am satisfied the
hulk of the foreign exhibits can be se
cured by the city. American exhibiters
also are prepared to make handsome do
nations. I think the Jessop collection
can be secured and some other private
collections. Dr.Charles Millspangh,the
botanist who has charge of the West Vir
ginia collection, intimates that a large
part of that exhibit can be secured. It
is one of the finest shown, is complete
and thoroughly classified. Kentucky,
Oregon, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michi
gan, Washington, Missouri and others
have complete, well-arranged and well
classified exhibits which they would
gladly donate in whole or in part."
Secretary Carlisle has ordered that the

coining gold bullion. The Treasury De

(110,000,000 in gold bullion, which is part
of the gold reserve of (100,000,0110. Gold
oars cannot no used as currency ; so it
has Been deemed in the present need to
coin the bullion on hand. The bullion
will be coined into (10, (5 and (2W gold
pieces, preference being given to the
first two denominations. The coining
capacity of the Philadelphia mint, it is
stated, will be between (5,000,000 and
(0,000,000 per month. The San Fran
cisco mintwili also tie utilized, but fortu
nately nearly all bullion possessed by the
government is in the East. There is
(20,000,000 of gold bullion in the Phila
delphia mint, (15,000,000 of it being in
one vault, where it has remained un
touched for fifteen years. Acting Di
rector Preston visited Philadelphia the
other day, and completed arrangements
with Superintendent ilosbysheil to begin
work at once. The Treasury is now pay
ing out gold coin all over the country,
and as a consequence stands more in
need of gold coin than heretofore.
