A GREAT FLOOD OF RUSINKSS.
It Is Out of Season In duly. However,
This Is n Curious Yc.tr.
R. G. Dun A Co., iu their weekly review nt
trade, say: A business flood so strong and
rapid thai tho conservatives fear it may do
harm, is out of season in July. Put the sea
tons this year lap over nnd erowd each other.
May frosts and fnghts, it is now evident,
kept back much business that would naturally
have been finished before midsummer, and
the delayed culmination of one season gets in
the way of efforts to begin another on time.
Rut the Yolume of business, however it may
le measured, is remarkably large for fctho
Cotton has not changed, though specula
tion still turns wholly on prospects, regard
less of enormous Ptocks carried over. In
Europe tho manufacture lags but here it i.i
The weekly output of pig iron was 171.191
tons, having risen PVJ70 tons in June and
other furnaces J have gone into operation
since July 4th. The rapid Hsu in prices has
brought into operation many additional
works, and there is U!1 a rush to buy before
prices advance further. Influential maiiu
factiTcrs are sending out warnings that the
rise may easily do mischief, nnd prices have
in fact advanced nearly 6 per cent, in two
week? but are stjii'ij per e;nt. lower than in
October, IH'J. The demand for structural
forms is enormous. Bessemer pig has ad
vanced to ?M.4H at Pittsburg, and wire nails
to 11.55, both higher.than in October, ls.rj;
grey forge to til. 23, structural beams to I S
and angles to 1.35.
Wool is still advancing with enormous
sales. As the sales are about four times the
weekly consumption, it is obvious that the
market is essentially speculative, but the
rise abroad has set the country aMaze so that
Western holders are asking even higher
prices than heretofore. Scarcity of domes
tic wool helps them and the enormous sales
of foreiiru only compensate for the reported
decrease in the domestic clip. But buying
ty most manufacturers is already affected,
and at the prices uow asked for wool, somo
manufacturers are douoting whether a cor
responding value for goods can be realized.
Opening prices for many iuht weight goods
show great irregularity, perhaps n majority
being on a par with la-t v.-ar but some lover
and some higher, Cotton cods continue
active and stromc. with comparatively little
ditlleulty as to laoor. Tic Northern mills

about 3 o'clock, and stopped at the tank td

and the semaphore throwu to danger signal

terrible fate that was rushing upon them.

Every berth in the Pullman was wrecked and
some of the occupants who were killed, never

Spain now has her turn at the demand
business. She isn't making a demand that
the United States rhall apologize, but ber
minister has been instructed to ask that th.'t
government will officially disavow the senti
ments alleged to have been expressed by
Ambassador E istis in an laterervlew pub
lished by a Paris newspaper. Ambassador
Eustis has already repudiated that alleged
iutervi-w, which he branded as a fake, but
that has had noefTc t upon the Spanish min-i.-t--r,
who has gone to Massachusetts for th
purpose of presenting his demand to Secre
tary tilney in pers n, not earingta deal with
th- su! .ordinate who is in charge of the Stste
d-p irtment. The Spanish minister proba
blv knows, in common with everybody else,
that Amba-sadur Eustis never eipressd;
for publication, the sentiments credited to
him in that interview, but he doubtless,
think it a good opportunity to get the U. 8.
government to nfii- tally say that it does not
sympathise with the 'Cuban rebellion, or
something to that effect. Hit be true that
Secretary Olney has been listening to the
seductive buzrjng of the Presidential bee the,
Spanish minister may be sorry he made that
demand as the S-h ret&ry may see in it an op-,
portuuity to give his candidacy a boost by
making the American eagle let out a scream
or two. It id more probable, however, that
the denial of the interview by Ambassador
Eu-tis will be considered a sufficient answer
o the demand. Spain would do well ty be
very careful, about such demands. This
government is, of course, neutral, but tnera
is littledoubt that an overwhelming majority
ofth i--ople ia this country sympathize
with the Cubans and would at a pinch help
them throw off Si anish rule.
