HOW GOLD IS EXPORTED.
The process of shipping gold across i
the ocean is thus described by the Bos
ton Commercial Bulletin: i
Kach keg contains $50,000 in dear i
gold. It is from the Bauk of America, 1
at Now York, that most of the gold is
shipped ftoiv that city. The foreign
steamships sailing from Boston now car- i
rv little or no gold, although the reverse i
was the csee years ago.
The shipments of gold aro not gener- i
ally on the bauk'» account. At a first
glance, persons might well suppose that
when the demand arises tor gold to send
abroad, the shipper would only havo to
send iu his order for bis huudreds of
thousands tu the sub-treasury, where
millions of specie are on deposit. But
thero art sufficient reasons why this
plan will not work. The sub-tronury
cau puy out its coin only to creditors of
tho government. With the Bauk of
America the associated banks keep oa
deposit constantly an enormous suui uf
gold, sonici imes amounting to $40,000,-
000. To tho member* of the bank as
sociation the Bank of America issues
its own certifi. ates agj.inst these depos

there is oocason for ii.ak'ng a gold
shipment, the coin is prepared for thai
purpose in tho rear ofiice of that bank ;
here it is kegged and made ready for
Kegs in which g Id is packed—"specie
kegs" as they aro called—are made of
extra hard wood. They must have an
n extra iron hoop. Specie is not thrown
loosely into a keg, nor, upon tho other
hand, is it carefully wrapped in tissue
- paper ni.d piled up one coin upon anuth
. e.\ The keg serves only as a protec
tion for canvas bags, into which tho
gold is placed in tho ordinary hit and
, miss fashion of pennies in a man's pocket
- Into each bag go $5,000, and ten hags
e fill a keg.
e In the interests of security, each keg
f is treated to what is technically known
• among the shippeis as the "rod taping"
process. At each end of the keg, in
tho projecting rim of the staves above
. the head, aro bored four boles at equi
, distant interyals. A piece of red tape
' ts run through these holes, orossing on
1 the head of the keg, and the ends tioally
meet in the center. At the point of
„ meeting, the tape is sealed to the keg's
', head by wax bearing the stamp of the
Gold crosses the ooean verv muoh as
, doos every other kind of freight, with
. out any special looking after. The av
erage rate of insurance u about $2,000
on a shipment There
aro shippers who do uot insure. Having
) to ship $1,000,000, they give it in equal
parts to half a doxen different vessels.
It is a strict rule with some firms never
to trust more than $250,000 at a timo
on any one ship.
A certain party furnishes all the kegs
for gold, and packs them. The man
who does this is a monopolist in his way.
Shippers of large amounts alwayr lose
a few dollars by abrasion, but not ex
ceeding sixteen ounces on a million dol
lar shipment. Tbo only proteetion to
| fonnd against abrasion lies in the ship
e mrnt of gold in bars instead of coin.
k Gold bars are not readily obtained.

THE NO-FENCE LAW.;
Ono of the greatest draw tanks to
material progress in North Carolina is
the unwillingness of many of our jcplo
to get out of tboir sterotyped w«y» —
methods that were used in past years
and deemed practicable and the best
modes at that time, But the times are
changing. New and luolbods
of farmingjare crowding opon us Lcono
miaal plans are being adopted, butmar.y"
of our people are loth itgivt up
waya for the new. . Wo'Wght oito for
instance the no-fonoo law. In many
name rfbme oouutkTwnore the. farmer*
wojild not go the
! bas beiyi brought to our'-ittent&n*
the trouble experienced in same counties
and tbo drawing of the question into
politics, as was done in the last cam
paign. The opponeu's «f the law are
not willing to get out of the old ruts of
farming. A bill htts been introduced
in the Legislature, iclative to Hun
combo county. Tho provisions of this
bill puts a penalty of $5,000 upon the
county commissioners for any failuro to
submit tho rnattor to a popular vote.
This bill it seems to us a useless piece
of legislation, as the statute under which
tho law operates, already makes it tho
duty of tho commissioners to call an
election in any of the townships,
in any Cuunty, when suab au election
is desired, upon the application of
the vjtcrs of said townships or coun
Mecklenburg was perhaps the first
county in the State to adopt the no-feucc
law and so far as wo are informed it
has worked well. Wo have heard no
desire to return to the old way of fen
cing in the crops. In Forsyth couuty
when the law was first adopted, seme
years ago, L" mot with vigorous opposi
tion and the result of ''«* first eketirn
was that tho law «as adop'ed iu ■ nlv
about throo townships. Since then it
has gradually grown in favor and adop
tion until now the eti'ire aounty, with
perhaps two or three townships out of
thirteen, have the law in successful
nmntinn tn.il, the facers are
d with tt. Wherever this law is iut&V
»t cud there is more or less oppositio
; This is owing to tho fact that our peof
>r are too much wedded to tho old way
doing things when new ideas and th
ic modes are brought to their attention.-

S i than Krupp, tbo oelobrated gun maker 1

D his men. Krupp employs 10,000 men,

der is used, making for each day 0,000

this iinuienso amount at twenty tons, or
' 40,000 pounds, to a car, it would require
the use of 300 cars. In addition to
8 this, the firm finishes every day at least
L " 1,000 tons, requiring fitty cars more
J Besides this, 150 tons of unfinish old
iron aud raw steel are handled at Thirty

' tons daily, handled at the steel rail mill
is transferred in what are called ladles.

J are required every day to handle the
raw and finished material used by Car
negie's mill. Twelve engines, or one
locomotive for every forty cars, each
being thiity feet long, added to tho 375
C oars, would make a train of 12,380 foot,
or more than two miles in length. For
