Reported for the Light by Henry Clews amp co., Bankers new York july 29, 1891. Special Wall Street continues wholly devoid of interest in both the investment and speculative branches of business. On the Stock Exchange operations Are confined to room traders who Are satisfied with fractional changes and follow the transient variations of tone rather than seek to give the Market a Bias one Way or the other the truth is there is no immediate material for the formation of a violent upward or a downward movement. Neither a a bulls nor a a bears have contracts outstanding important enough to invite attack from the opposite Side nor is there anything in outside influence of enough immediate interest to invite Large operations. Under these circumstances. Everybody easily yields to the temp rations of the sea soul a recreations and the a a Street is virtually partially deserted. This condition of things is natural enough As a sequel of the world wide financial derangement of last fall caution everywhere the contraction of credit in every direction critical examination into the condition of the institutions through which finance operates discouragement towards speculative operations and undertakings Aud a protracted process of liquidation a these Are among the influences to which financial interests have been subjected alike in Europe and the United states for the last nine or ten months. The condition has been that of collapse after convulsion and the question is whether the collapse stage Bas run its course so that we May expect a Early returns of general vigor Aud activity. It is the difficulty of answering this question satisfactory that now holds Wall Street Iii suspense. And that difficulty cannot be fairly Laid to anything in our Domestic situation for we have nowhere any really unsatisfactory conditions in our industries our Commerce or our finance whilst we Nave the Promise of the potent stimulus that comes from extraordinary crops and the Clearing House returns show that the current volume of the nation s business More than equals that of a year ago. The one thing that prevents the revival of financial operations at this Centre appears to be the uncertainty that still overhangs european finance. Our agricultural crops upon which nearly one half of our population Are directly dependent afford upon the whole a Promise of unparalleled results. The Cotton crop seems Likely to follow close upon the great volume of that last year. The Corn crop so far indicates a result beyond the average. And the output of wheat is Likely to surpass All precedent. What Quantity of wheat we shall Export i leave to others to predict. The average value of our annual exports of wheat and flour for the Las seven years has been $168,,, the average Export Price reducing the flour to wheat having been 87 3-4 cents per Bushel. Should the exports out of this crop reach 200,000 too bushels Aud the Export Price average $1, the value of our shipments m 1891-92 would exceed by $92,000,000 the average yearly shipments of the lest seven years. Of this basis devaluation Trie present crop estimated at 540,000,000 bushels would give to the Farmers Millers carriers Aud handlers a total result of $540,000,-000, against $372,800,000 As the value of last years crop of 400,000,000 bushels valued at a average Export Price of 93.2 cents per Bushel. Results like these upon our three great crops mean an invaluable Boon the our great agricultural Industry and to All other industries dependent upon la the effects of which cannot fail to be soon Felt in a marked revival of both our internal and external Commerce. At the same time in estimating die foreign situation i continue to advise conservatism in All bus Ness movements so As Torvold plunging heavily into debt.
