era of reconstruction and new develop
ment will ensue la Mexico. This will
afford relief where financial strain has
been greatest, and in due season there
will undoubtedly be a rush of new en
terprises for development of the vast
and rich resources of that portion of
this continent.
The main reason for stock market
inertia has been lack of confidence, and
this lark of confidence must be primari.
ly attributed to the industrial and fin
ancial reaction which started with the
Balkan War and has spread over the
entire world. This is the prime cause
of present conditions which our poli
ticians have aggravated rather thau
soften. The worldwide trade reaction
proved by the accumulation of the
idle funds in all the principal money
markets of the world, where thero has
been the same lack of confidence as in
the United States. It remains to be
seen how far cheap money, good crops
and Western optimism will counteract
idle nulls and .astern pessimists. All
indications point to a coming turn for
the better. Tms market has been thor
oughly liquidated, and a fair recovery
is justified by the uiore favorable tenor
or recent events; not to speak of iVe
ample discounting of unfavorable
events which b:is already taken place.
,With such weak stocks as Missouri Pa
cific, Denver, N'ew Haven and Chesa
peake & Ohio it was only natural that
the balanco of the list should display
hesitation. Indeed, it is surprising that
tne market stuwed such sustaining
power. The almost total ecliiwe of
Rock island, Kan Francisco, Missouri
Pacitic and Denver security values
would, under oulinary circumstances, be
Biificient to create a panic. It miiBt' be
believed, therefore, that the present is
no ordinary occasion. Notwithstanding
these eruptions, holders of standard se
curities refuse to be frightened, and
pntiently cling to their belongings in
the belief thnt sooner or later they
are bound ' to improve on investment
The disposition of the President to
consult large imsiness interests is, if
continued, likely to produce important
results. There is no question that all
sections of the nation are beginning to
feel that there has now been enough
antagonism against big business and
corporate interests) and there is no
doubt that if the countyy were left to
its own resources tor a reasonable tiino
general confidence and piosperity would
be restored "a consummation devout
ly to be wished.."

New York, July 11, 1914. The hap
penings of the week have upon the
wholo been of a favorable character.
The most encouraging development was
the Jnly crop report of the Deirtment
of Agriculture. This report indicates
a crop of fully 930,000,000 bushels of
wheat, against 760,000,000 tms.iels a
year ago; a crop of z,8us,uuu,uuu Dtisn-
cls of corn, as against 2,440,000,000
bushels a year ago; a crop of oats of
1,200,000,000. bushels, compared with
1,122,000,000 bushels a year ago. The
estimated farm value of the wheat crop
is placed at $700,000,000; corn over
$2,000,000,000, and oats over $40,000,
000. These amounts of course represent
only a portion of the total agricultural
products of the country, which this
vcar are expected to reach a value of
fully $10,000,000,000.
The creation of so large an amount
of new wealth must inevitably have a
stimulating effect upon general busi
ness. This fact is particularly realized
in the Western or Agricultural states,
where the feeling is universally op
timistic. Western railroads are busily
preparing to handle the vast traffic
which this will create; and there is al
ready a pleasing diminution in toe num
Following are the pear, prune and
plum estimates for the year 1014, ga
thered by a careful snrvcy of the fruit
The condition of 'the pear jjrop
throughout the United Btatcs, although
even more difficult to determine than
the apple crop, promises less than "nor
mal" production this season, although
the pear crop is nbove the six-year av
crage. The department of agriculture
estimates it tit 08.4 per cent, and the
tix-year average at 05.3 per cent, or, in
other words, it puts this season's pear
crop at 104.7 per" cent of the six-year
average More recent reports from tho
large pear growing sVctions, however.
show a slight falling off from this fig
ure, according to a bulletin issued by
the North Pacific Fruit Distributors.
The outlook in various sections of
the country is given by the bulletin as
Northwest Yakima will hnvo a nor
mal crop; II. .od River's crop is re
portedto be about the same- as last
year; Wcnatcliee will have a little
heavier crop than in 1913; southern
Idaho's crop will be light; (Spokane's
crop, which is small, will be a little
above lr.st year; Wulln Wulla's crop is
considered normal, although a percent

generally, the erop was decreased early j
n the season, being declared almost a
failure. The commercial output, as
compared to last year, uadoubtedly will 1
be light; western Oregon the crop was (
badly damaged early in the season. .
While it will be short, it is not the '
failure that was anticipated some tint :
ago. As a wbole, tho Urcgon erop is
estimated at about one-fifth of a full
erop. In western Washington the crop j
ta spotted and somewhat short, and in
many orchards there will be none.
Other western districts California s
crop is said to be light because the
blossoms did not set well, the average
of the 10 lurgest prune counties being ,
figured at 33.8 per cent of normal. Col
orado and Utah's crops are declared;
to be somewhere near normal.
East Crops are reported as follows: i
New Jersey, 100 per cent; Delaware, i
only a few; Pennsylvania, 50 per cent; ;
Ohio, full crop, although there has been
more blight than usual; Miclugnu, 79

The earlier estimate was 7 per cent, t44--
trndc; so this tendency should not be re
garded too seriously. The dry goods
trade is, of course, feeling the effects
of general depression at the .distributing
cni, and high prices for raw material
and labor at the manufacturer's end.
An added element of uncertainty is the
new tariff, which is admitting woolen
fabrics and fancy cotton goods much
more freelv than when it first went
I into operation. The steel trade thus far
j lias not been materially affected by the
i new duties. The country already ex
ports far more steel products than it
; imports, and is not in any serious dan
ger from the new schedule; although
lower prices abroad would probably ad
