The Week

The Business World

The syndicate which has undertaken to control foreign exchange, in order to uphold the gold reserve, has, it is reported, received offerings of credits to the enormous amount of $250,000,000. There is no doubt that the plan can be effectively carried out for the next few months. In the end, of course, there must be a readjustment by which the balance between exports and imports shall be met. The weekly statement of the banks showed a decrease of nearly ten millions in specie and a gain of about seven millions in legal tenders as a result of the gold operations. There was also a very large decrease in deposits, $8,344,200. In stocks, though the market was quiet and the bulk of transactions small, there was a gradual though moderate gain during the week from the low prices of its first two days. The crop reports were generally very favorable. The industrial situation is at its dullest; trade in every direction is almost non-existent; iren and steel, cotton and many other staples are falling in price. Exports of wheat and flour have fallen slightly from the previous week, but are over a million bushels larger than for the same week a year ago. Business failures continue to increase in number; Bradstreets" records 294, as compared with 280 the previous week, and 221 for the same week of 1895


No one doubts the Failure to Sell City Bonds sound credit of the cities of New York

and Brooklyn. New York bonds have in the past sold freely on a 3 per cent. basis. But last week there was a total failure on the part of New York to market an issue of bonds and stock amounting to about $3,800,000 at 31⁄2 per cent., and Brooklyn received only two bids for 31⁄2 per cent. bonds and stock amounting to $1,535,000. In both cases the bonds and stock were expressly payable in gold, so that fear of a depreciated currency cannot be stated as the cause. We are reduced to the conclusion that funds for investment are not at this moment plentiful. Comptroller Fitch's theory that the exposures of the Lexow Committee have injured the city's credit have been treated with general contempt, and deserve to be so regarded. A similar difficulty in disposing of bonds has lately been experienced in Massachusetts. Mayor Wurster, of Brooklyn, is reported to have said: "Money is being sent West much earlier this year than usual to move the crops. The reserve in the banks has fallen from $60,000,000 to $18,000,000. I think money will be easier and bidders more plentiful in September." A New York banker says: "The failure to sell the New York city bonds is due, in my judgment, to an unwillingness on the part of capitalists, banking institutions, and bankers to invest funds at present, or to increase in any way their obligations, and is not in the slightest degree due to any change in the city's credit, which is as good as it ever has been." Another theory advanced as a partial explanation is that by just so much as capital has of late been invested in United State bonds of new issue, by that amount has the total of capital awaiting investment at a low rate of interest been reduced.

A new line between Tokio New Steamship and Seattle is being planned Line to Japan by the Japanese Mail Steamship Company. Its manager, Mr. Iwanaga, who has lately been in this city, stated to a reporter that the plans were substantially complete. He said: "Until we can make other arrangments, and for the time being, there will be but one vessel a month each way. After things have been arranged in running order, the service will, beyond a doubt, be improved. The steamers will be of about 3,000 tons burden each, Clyde-built, and suitable for freight traffic. We are not, at first, counting much on the passenger traffic, and so our accommodations will not, in the beginning, be as satisfactory for passengers as some of the other lines plying between the Pacific Coast and Japan. We are having eighteen new steamers built to accommodate the growing traffic of our city, and some of them will be used in this business. The line I represent is

not a new one, although the connection with the United States is new. The line was established about twenty-five years ago by Iwaski, a well-known Japanese financier, who did much for the country and aided in building up its industries. The capital of the company is about 22,000,000 yen, Japanese money, in silver, or about $13,000,000 in your money. We have a big fleet, sixty-two vessels in all. Our trade lies mainly between Japan and Hong Kong, Ceylon, Borneo, the Malay Peninsula and India. We have also a line going to European ports. We will at once start our line to this country, and in a short time hope to get a line started to Australia."

Petroleum Production

in 1895

The "American Manufacturer" says: "The most notable features

France's forwardness to her system of peasant proprietorship. However that may be, British agriculture is not co-operative, and is in a state of collapse, while French agriculture is co-operative and in a state of robust prosperity. It is now about thirty years since agricultural co-operation was begun in France. Today the whole land is covered with societies, or syndicates, as they are there called. What is the result? Without going into details, it may be sufficient to say that the cost of fertilizers and other supplies has been reduced by from 40 to 50 per cent., while by the consequent freer use of them the average yield of wheat has been increased by fully 12 per cent., and of other crops in proportion. Those few figures are significant of the whole case. Nor is that the only example England has at her very doors. A similar work is under way in Ireland. It was organized only seven years ago, and has had no Government encouragement, and the active opposition of the politicians and the storekeepers-the latter an influential class. Its progress has naturally, therefore, been slow, but it has been substantial, and the beneficence of the system has been amply demonstrated."


the United States increased from 49,344,516 AMERICAN FIRE

in connection with the production of crude petroleum in 1895 are: 1. The notable increase in production, especially in Ohio, Indiana, and California. 2. The decrease in stocks. 3. The rise in prices. 4. The extension southward of the profitable producing districts in the Appalachian range. Briefly summarized, the facts regarding these four features are as follows: The production in the United States increased from 49,344,516 barrels in 1894 to 52,983,526 barrels in 1895, most of the important producing districts sharing in this increase. The production of Pennsylvania increased from 18,077,559 barrels to 18,231,442; of Ohio from 16,792,154 barrels to 19,545,233 barrels. This increase in Ohio was fairly distributed throughout the two important producing districts. The production of Indiana increased from 3,688,666 barrels to 4,386,132 barrels, while the production of California, owing to the new discoveries at Los Angeles, increased from 705,969 barrels to 1,208,482 barrels. On the other hand, there was a slight decrease in the production of West Virginia and New York.

Under the Thames

Six miles from the Tower Bridge in the city of London one of the greatest engineering feats of this century is in progress, says a correspondent in the San Francisco "Chronicle." This is the Blackwell tunnel, undertaken to make a new means of communication between the big districts that lie north and south of the Thames below London Bridge. The docks opened some years ago at Tilbury, the increasing size of ships and other developments of recent times have caused an immense extension of manufacturing interests in an eastern direction on each side of the river, with a corresponding movement on the part of the workers engaged in the various trades. The Tower Bridge, recently erected, was expected to relieve this great traffic pressure, but although to a certain extent it has done so, it is quite inadequate to the public need. What this means will be best understood from the fact that at the present time the population of the metropolitan district below London Bridge on the north side numbers 100,000 more persons than the whole of Liverpool, while on the south side it is equal to Glasgow. At first another bridge was proposed, but the only kind possible would be a high level bridge, in which the roadway would be about 160 feet above high-water


An editorial writer in the Co-Operation in Agriculture New York "Tribune" remarks: "The principle of co-operation is at last beginning to be applied to agriculture as well as to manufactures and trade. It is worthy of remark that this should have been so long delayed in England, which is pre-eminently the home of co-operation. Per haps that is only another proof of Samuel Adams's remark that the English are a nation of shopkeepers. They invented co-operation, but applied it merely to shopkeeping, their favorite occupation. Their neighbors of France, on the other hand, borrowed the idea from them, and, being largely a nation of peasant farmers, forthwith applied it to the operation of their farms. Or, perhaps, British backwardness has been due to the landlord system, and

The summer school at Clark University has SCHERMERHORN'S TEACHERS' AGENCY

lately completed its sixth session.

The number in attendance was very much greater than in any previous year. Twentythree States were represented, fifteen teachers coming from the Pacific coast.

The University confines itself strictly to post-graduate work, and this is based upon original research and experiment. The summer school presents, in brief form, many of the results of these investigations. The research carried on in the University, and the lectures at the summer school appear to aim at establishing facts that will contribute to a reliable philosophy of education.

Child study and the kindergarten were given especial consideration in the second week.

One of the most interesting features of the session was the presence of numerous representative kindergartners from almost every leading city in the country. Monday of the second week was Kindergarten Day. The lectures, the conference, and a reception by Mrs. Sprague, wife of Mayor Sprague, were all for kindergartners. The kindergartners passed resolutions expressing to Dr. Hall their sense of obligations for his suggestions to them in the line of child study, and for his recommendations that some modifications be made in the kindergarten curriculum.

College professors, school superintendents, and school principals were present in large numbers. The enthusiasm and the numbers in attendance continued to increase up to the A DESIRABLE SCHOOL IN NEW YORK CITY time of the last lecture, given Saturday evening at eight o'clock.

The University and its brilliant President, with his skillful and well-trained associates, easily lead in the line of original inquiry into the principles of elementary education in this country. No such course as was open to the students at the summer school has ever before

been presented. No effort is made to present or discuss methods of teaching. The teacher who is a slave to method or organization would find little pleasure in this school, but those who are thoughtful concerning the importance of the physical and emotional influence upon childhood; those who believe that joyful activity and hard work may be in harmony; those who believe that the school-room in its best estate should represent and prepare a child for our best civilization; those who believe, with Dr. Hall, that a new and reliable philosophy will be constructed on these and kindred ideas, cannot afford to be ignorant of the power and purpose of the Clark University summer school.

Through Wonderland



The Yellowstone Park is one of the most wonderfully attractive regions of the world. Its beauties of scenery, the wild grandeur of its mountains and cañons, compel the admiration of every visitor, while its phenomenal geysers and curious mineralogical formations make it a rich field for the investigation of the scientist. Universal interest attaches to it, and in order that the natural desire to visit it may be accomplished in the most satisfactory manner the Pennsylvania Railroad Company has arranged for a tour covering a period of sixteen days, leaving New York and Philadelphia. Thursday, August 27.

As the tour will be run under the personally-conducted tourist system inaugurated by the abovenamed Company, it is hardly necessary to give the assurance that it will be arranged in the most complete manner. It might be well to state, however, that no other means of seeing the Park thoroughly is comparable to that afforded by a well ordered personally-conducted tour.

A special train, consisting of a dining, Pullman vestibule drawing-room sleeping, compartment, and observation cars, which will be the best that can be secured, will be provided, in which passengers will live en route, and whenever the journey is broken the choicest rooms in the leading hotels will be reserved for the use of the tourists, for which regular rates are paid, so that the guests, although members of a party, enjoy all the privileges of individuals who may have made their own selections.

The party will be conducted throughout by a tourist agent especially selected for his ability and experience, with chaperon to look after the comfort of lady passengers.

The rate, covering every necessary expense, will be $210 from Boston, and $200 from New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, and Harrisburg; proportionate rates from other points.

Detailed itinerary will be sent on application to Tourist Agent, 205 Washington Street, Boston; 1196 Broadway, New York; 860 Fulton Street, Brooklyn; or Room 411, Broad Street Station, Philadelphia.
