MARim ISTBIMGESCB. Matter* of Interest to Shipping Men Generali}-. It Is not known s'et to what extent the wharves of the Seaboard Air Line will be used by naval stores men. A few of the factors have announced their inten tion of using the wharves, enough prob ably to assure the company a liberal share o.’ this patronage, but others have signi fied their Intention of continuing to use the old yards. One of the large receivers of naval stores, is said not to be par ticularly anxious to have Its stuff deliv cied on the other side, claiming that it 1- more acceptable on this side. While i is not known what preferences buyers here expressed, it has not been generally understood that stuff will not be altogeth e acceptable on the island. The con cern referred to has its receipts by ihe Florida Central and Peninsular, and the Georgia end Alabama Railroads delivered at either the Plant System or the Cen tral yards. Many of the naval stores people have already done so, or have sig nified their intention of storing receipts or. the other side. Lumber exporters have largely decided to locate on the terminal property, and wilt make all their coastwise shipments from that side. Reports of t’nited States Shipping Com missioners for the year ended June 3(1, 1900, rendered to the Bureau of Naviga tion show 142.632 shipments, discharges and reshtpments of seamen on American \ - -eels at those offices compared with 122.468 for the previous fiscal year. The expenses have been $55,431 compared with $>(,651. The average services per man cost 39 cents, the lowest in the past seven y.ars. Besides duties enumerated the commissioners a4 various ports have as sisted without pay in the shipment of crews for army transports. There are now twenty commissioners’ officers, the of fice at Mobile having been re-established and an office established t Honolulu oil June 14. Shipments, discharges and re shipments at New York were 48,469, com pared with 35,627 for the previous year. Boston and Port Townsend show consid erable increases. Shipments and reship inents aggregate 90,325, divided by nation ality-into Americans 32,333, British 18,180, Scandinavians 16,735. Germans 8.419, Ital ians 1,186, French 635, other nationalities 12.506. These figures include in many in stances repeated shipments of the same men. The percentage of Americans is 35, compared with 36 the previous year, mail steamships raising the American average. The number of Scandinavians is practically unchanged, the increase being in German and British subjects. Ship ments and reshipmetits on steam vessels numbered 47,409 and on oil sail vessels 42,916.

Cotton Decline* on Improved Crop Prospect*—Stock* Very Dull, The cotton market was more active, and the activity was caused by increased pressure to sell, as has been forecasted here several times. The immediate cau*e of the selling was probably the decided improvement in crop prospects, aided by unsatisfactory trade and unsettled affairs in Asia and Europe. The market closed at nearly the lowest point, August about 70 points lower at 8.52; new crop months about 36 points lower, October Bc. The week was very favorable for the growing crop, and the Chronicle's report was exceptionally so. Perhaps that jour nal has never published a better one at this season of the year. These favornble conditions ruled all through July and guarantee a substantial advance in the next bureau report. It is stated that Southwest Texas will have a good deal of new cotton for delivery on August con tract* in New Orleans. A marked change has come over public sentiment—from op timistically bullish, as it wos a fortnight ago, it Is now pessimistically bearish. As usual, the general run of New York com mission houses were urging purchases when the market was a cent higher, and urging sales now. It has been repeatedly suggested here that high prices next fall could not be expected If the crop promised fairly well; with a good crop and such depressing out side influences the south should not be unprepared to see a decline of perhaps two cents, Yet there will be reactions, and sharp ones, and sales are not recommended ex cept on such spurts; and even then noth ing earlier than November delivery. The recent decline is no proof that August manipulation has been definitely aban doned. but at least a motley crowd of un deslred "taller*'' have been ’’frozen out." The stock market was very dull, only a few specialties showing any degree of ac tivity—such as sugar, tobacco and Brook lyn all of which closed at some de. rllne The general list shows few material changes and interest is lacking. There are numerous bull tips out concerning the specialties, but the course of the mar ket appears to be governed by the caprice of manipulators. However, purchases on weak spots seem advisable. There was only small change In wheat, but corn declined 1 somewhat on brilliant crop accounts. Provisions looked like do ing better until the report of fever In Florida chilled the ardor of the bulls. As vet however, there has been no serious break Would favor selling grain and pro vision* on firm spots. ' Wm. T. Williams. THE RICK M4HKET.

All grades in domestic and foreign receive consideration and prices in the latter have again hardened in response to advancing markets abroad. Advices from the South note good in quiry at at] points and under limited sup ply full recent figures are easily obtain ed. Contrary conditions still wait upon the growing crop; drought along the At lantic coast and daily rainfall in Louisi ana and Texas.

RANKER CLEW'S VIEWS. The Fiuanolal Outlook it* Seen From Wall Street. New York, Aug 4.—The market has been dull and uninteresting; strong In spots and weak tn spots; but displaying in general a firm and healthy undertone. Absentee ism is the chief obstacle to an advance at thla time. Many of the big leaders are away on pleasure; and, until their return, any concert of movement towards an ag gressive advance in prices is impossible. The public never Jump into the market without distinct signs of leadership. There is an abundance of money seek ing Investment. At present this is not going into either bonds or stocks; but both Investment and speculative buyers ore waiting until the market develops more visible strength. The reasons for antici pating a better market later on are plen tiful and sound. The most serioua impedi ment to speculative operations has been the Chinese situation. Fears that serious foreign entanglements of aome sort might arise which would derange the foreign money market*, draw gold from New York and send back Arterlcon securities, very naturally deterred any upward movement in this market. Other retarding Influences have been the crop uncertainties and the signs of trade reaction shown by declin ing prices and curtailed production tn the Iron and textile trades. Election doubts have not been a factor worth notice thu# far. Railroad earnings are generally showing wonderfully good results, when It ts re membered they compare with two phe nomenal years. Such gains cannot al ways be expected. At the same <ime ex penses are often Increasing very heavily; hence unreasonable expectations of extra dividends are likely to meet with disap pointment. A number of road* have late ly increased or paid their flrst dividends, and this fact haa proved h* strongest Seaboard Air Line Railway J Double Daily Service Central or 90t h Meridian Time.

The August number of the North Amer ican Review is an excellent one. Beven articles are devoted to "The Crisis In Chi na," and each of them regard* it or dis cusses It from a different point of view. John Barrett, who was formerly our min ister to Siam, defines “The Duly of Amer ica" at. this momentous Juncture. Lieut. Carlyon lielluirs of the Royal Navy, who was naval attache to the British legation l at Pekin, points out “The Responsibility of the Rulers" for the lamentable condi tions existing in the Celestial Empire. Demetrius C. Boulger expresses the fear that the partition of China is inevitable, and insists that America must prepare to take her share of territory unless she would suffer commercial * ffacement in the Far East. George It. Smyth, president of the Anglo-Chinesc College ai Foochow gives the best account that has yet been published of the "Causes of Anti-Foreign Feeling in China.” A Japanese diplomat tells wht his countrymen think of the situation. Robert E. lewis, an American genileman resident In Shanghai, who has traveled Iri nearly every province of China, describes, in an article entitled 'The Gathering of the Storm,” outrages which have been systematically perpe trated upon foreigners In China for a space of two years; while Charles K. Holder demonstrates. In "America's Treatment of the Chinese,'’ that the United States i* not without blame for the resentment cherished by that people against the na tions of the West, Booker T.
