NEW YORK,! Sept. 20. (Special.)
Th stock market has had the assist

and the definite engagement in London

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

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. Yours
very truly, ;
