Political events of the week had no

In sterling exchange nnd the beginning
of Imports of gold may be fairly at-
tributed to the accumulating exes." of
merchandise exports over imports to
which attention has been repeatedly
called exports from New York for th.i
past two weeks having been 20 per cent
larger than Imports hero 21 per cent
Hmaller than last year. The rapid
movement of grain and the unusually
t-arly marketing of cotton tends strong-
ly to aid the banking syndicate which
has undertaken to regulate foreign ex-
change. Speculation has advanced wheat over
1 cent during rhe week corn a small
fraction and cotton c the principal
motive power being reports of Injury
to growing crops. As before the un-
favorable accounts respecting wheat
are In fomc measure discredited by
the continued heavy movement from tho

C97.137 bushels In two weeks ucalnht

flour included 4.S92.6C0 bushels against
2935233 last year and while the In-
crease Is encouraging It scarcely cor-
responds with current account of de-
Dclent yield In somo foreign countries.
Tho movement of corn continued heavy
although the price i still o low tnat
one wonders why the product la put
Into cars Instead of Into hogs. The
alarm about the destruction of cotton
lias ben most vigorously worked here
and abroad and has really raided the
price although It is yet to be seen
whether the yield has been so far di-
minished as to warrant a price nearly
n cent higher than a year ago.
Some additional heavy failures In
the lumber trades call attention ta the
continuing deprewlon which appears
to result at least In part from expec-
tations entertained by many that the
untimely Increase lm new building dur-
ing th past year would be permanent.
The Iron and steel manufacturers re-
port depression. Ilesemer pig has sold

enteen furnaces at work but In spite
of this the supply of finished products
appear to greatly exceed tho steel rails
