HE DISCUSSES BATE QUESTION And -Says Present System Is the Only Sure Solution of the l' Problem. Government Ownership of Roads Would not Help, Neither the i Tariff for American Manufacturers Have Too ' Much Protection Canal Is Toy. PRESTON, Minn., Sept. 20. Presi dent Hill, of. the. Great Northern, ad dressing the southern Minnesota" farm ers today stated there were adequate markets. He did not believe the tariff would help, notwithstanding what the politicians say. There is one way of lessening " the cost of transportation. He did not favor governmental control of railways, this, he said, would.eause the rates to deeline more slowly than when fixed by men whose knowledge enabled them to make sweeping reduc tions. It would eventually come to a distance tariff, the low charge to the farmers of Minnesota for a long haul thus disappearing. The Panama, canal was pronounced a toy and he does not believe any great good will come of it. lie deprecated the policy of the offending Chinese, and also, by inference, - our lack of merchant marine. In conclusion he said: "The fallacy of the United States getting control of the market of the world needs to be studied and hon estly ansWered.-Because our highly protected manufacturers are able, by reason of high prices they charge you, to send a certain portion of their out put abroad and sell it for half what you pay, we are not conjuring the com mercial world. ' . ; ' i is shown to have been below C,000,000 bushels. On the basis of the govern ment's figures of condition and area tba harvest promise of eorn is figured x the trade statisticians at 2,716,918, 000 bushels. The former volume his never been exceeded and the latter but once, namely, by the 748,460,000 bush els representing the 1901 harvest. 'm 1904 wheat harvest was but 552.400,000 bushels. It cannot be said that the showing in wheat was unexpected; but the increase vin corn renewed, momen tarily at least, quite a degree of enthu siasm; and in connection with the gold engagement-already - noted influenced free covering of contracts by profes sionals and others having outstanding short commitments. The bull pool lead ers took advantage of this situation to rally prices, but once more failed to attract outside buying; and during the closing days of ' the week the market showed evidence of a disposition by the eliques to protect prices even at the risk of adding somewhat to their pres ent large accumulations. ' The financial situation has, in a broad sense, however, undergone no important change dwflng the week. The favorable crops, the treaty of peace, the domestic and foreign trade energy, the general industrial activity all these have been very generally expeeted; and have ma terialized. Their effect as immediate market influence has therefore ended; and they take their place aa factors in a general long range market outlook in which the; natural laws of trade will operate and control. The pivotal point of the imme4liate market continues the money situation, and the hand writing is very plain that we are to have a per iod of aetive money, extending through the usual autumn period of strain. It is hardy probable that the strain this year will become more than usually ac ute in that Secretary Shaw may be de pended upon to give every possible re lief. Such relief, however, could only be furnished after a strain had already developed to a measurable degree. Therefore, ' with a constant strain of stringency on the one-hand and a prom ise of relief lefore it becomes danger onsly acute on the - other hand and, moreover, with the incentive for' the large cliques and other, operators to pro tect theiK immense holdings the mar ket prospects certainly seem to point to aetive and wide fluctuations, which will afford opportunities on either side for quick trading without the risk of the situtaion approaching the danger or panic point. Any 'tronou need ' increase in money rates will cause mrtner re adjustments in loans between the banks and their Wall street customers, a re adjustment that may be depended upon to cause some liqiudation f inade quately margined . accounts, and, fur thermore, tend to discouraee the laree cliques and pools from adding unneces sarily to their present accumulations. The statement of the Associated Banks is fty no means a complete index of New Yorka financial strength, the op erations between the trust companies and the banks rendering the statement particularly misleading. In many in stances the trust companies, of this cen ter, and in fact, of nearly all centers, are merely banks under another name. In New York - especially, they 'deposit their surplus funds with the banks when money is lull that is to say, when they cannot themselves obtain a higher rate than the banks pay. When, however, the trust companies eaa loaa fands at more than the bank rate they promptly withdraw tbem for that pur pose. Last w,eek there jwss a consider able deduction in the bank loans, which partfally reflected the withdrawal of trust company funds, and further with drawals it would almost seem may be expected right along now. Last week's bank statement did not show as severe a redaction, In the surplus reserve as many had expected. This, however, was entirely a technical matter, dn t the reduction of loans .which in turn' led .to a reduction in deposits, requiring, therefore,. a smaller legal reserve than the week preceding. : , - ' i The , German bank has reduced its rate 1 wr cent, to 5 4 per cent.; The failure of the Bank of England to again raise its discount sate after the initial engagement , of. gold for this country had been completed suggests the prob ability ' fcf additional engagements in the near future. But the fact should not be. lost sight of that , the money market of today is a world's market. That the natural channel for gold leads to this center can readily be appreeiat ed by a reference to recent official data of our foreign trade. Cotton is leaving our shores at an unprecedented rate, the oflicial statement for August show ing aa increase in the value of the ex ports of the staple amounting to (34, O00.000, while the exports for the cot ton year ending August 31 were the largest in volume and in value m the trade's history.! Our breadstuff have not. yet begun to go abroad in large quantities, though a good . demand ex ists for them as soon as prices reach an export basis, to which they are ap parently tending; and: the fact that there have leen active engagements of ocean freight accommodation on- the regular oecan liners indicates prepara tions for a large and active season. Official reports covering sixty-four out of . seventy-two governments of Russia show decreases. . for instance, ia their current harvests from those of 1!X4 of 178,000,000 bushel of wheat, 352,000, 000 bushels of rye and 296.000,000 bush els of oats. The crops of France have also been The subject of unfavorable reports during the week, so that a yekt of active shipments is at hand unlcsj speculation shall force. American prices too high. Notwithstanding the small shipment of breadstuffs, our general merchandise export statement is con tinuing its recent excellent showing, in dicating 5for the eight months of the calendar year just ended an increase of $103,076,445 in the value of our imports and of $115,149,rCS in the export account.- fin the industrial situation a very substantial index of the-future is the activity of orders,1 particularly of steel rails, for delivery next year. Us ually responsible authoritea now figure that such orders for steel rails amount to 1,500,000 tons at eurent prices. An other favorable feature, in taking a long range view of the market, is the absence of sensational or untoward de velopments in the current investigation into the affairs and finances of the great insurance companies, snowing that con dtiions developed in connection with the scandal in one large company are not me general conditions a fact which will have in the long run a meas urable influence on public confidence. That activit3' I" generally expected in the stock market is indicated by the advance in the price of stock exchange memDersiiips to a new high record. namely, $4,000. Ilenry Clews. AIRSHIP CARRIES MESSAGE. Lincoln Beechey Steers Baldwin's Craft . at Lewis and Clark Exposition to Vancouver. PORTLAND, Sept. 20.-For the first time in the history of aeronautics, aa airship was used to practical purjMtwe as the means of delivering a message to day, when Lincoln Beechey, the boy aeronaut, in charge of Captain T. S. Baldwin's airship "City of Portland," carried a note from .the exposition grounds to Vancouver barracks, a dis tance of nine miles. The flight was made in forty minutes, against a strong wind. A large crowd of teoide Watched the start and wished the during aero naut Ooil! sjieed. At a few minutes past eleven, the airship City of Portland, with Iiee-hey in charge, rose gracefully from two ji.iw-horsi'S in the aeronautic concourse on the exposition grounds, and sailed txddlr in a northeasterly direction.. The erowll watched the airship until it passed from view. An hour later, a telephone message was '"Tece-ived telling of the ship's safe arrival at Vancouver barracks, and announcing that the ship had started back. On the return trip the wind, which had opposed the ship on the way over, veered and blew in almost the ' opposite direction. This made the airship's progress slow, but Bechey stuck manfully to his post and guided bis frail craft across the Co lumbia and Willamette rivers. Then,, as the gasoline supply was running low, and the, velocity ofvthe; wind increas ing every minute, bende a graceful lescent in an ojten lot. f ; . It was the i.ttrixi.te of the aeronaut to deliver his message to General Con stant Williams, commandant at Van couver, ami return with a message from the commandant. He was only partly successful, yet the feat which he per formed was one unique in aeronautic, history, and is not likely to ! repeat ed," unless the aeronaut does it him self. The , message which Bechey de li vered follows: - "Portland, Or., Sept. IP, 1903. V "General Constant Williams, Command ing Department of the Columbia, , Vanconer Barracks, Washington: , "Dear Sir I have the honor to con Vev to you, by bearer, the compliments of the president of the exposition, Mr, II. W. (ioode, and to express .tbo nopo that this uniquely transmitted message will be delivered to yon promptly and safely 'by Aeronaut? Lincoln Beechey, the pilot of Captain Baldwin 'a airship Citv of Portland. - 'Jn this connection, permit me to say that if this message reaches you, as we now have every confidence it will, you will enjoy the Iistinctio of being the first one to have ever re ceived a docoment conveyed under sim ilar auspices, and President" Goode and myelf will share your honors in being the first to transmit the same.
