Exports for eleven months of the fiscal year now ended have been classified and analyzed at Washington. It is shown that the exports of manufactures increased 28 per cent, the value of the shipments in May ($40,460,367) having been exceeded in only one month before, March of the present year. The monthly average in the calendar year 1899 was less than $32,000,000. The total for the eleven months was $393,800,000, and the total for the entire year was probably not less than $428,000,000, or $90,000,000 in excess of the preceding year's shipments. The most striking advance is shown in the exports of articles composed wholly or in part of iron or steel.

* The condition of the national finances as revealed in the annual balance sheet is extremely gratifying, showing a surplus of $81,229,777. Secretary Gage, in his last annual report, estimated the surplus at the end of the fiscal year 1900 at $40,000,000. The total receipts, exclusive of the postal service, are $568,988,948, and the expenditures $487,759,171. This showing will make the demand for a reduction of taxes imperative. With the gradual reduction of the expenses in the Philippines, the surplus of the year 1901 should be more than $100,000,000, provided we do not get into any new wars.--The Nation.

helped late sown wheat in sections, but have come too late to repair the damage done or materially benefit the crop generally in the Northwest. At the same time the bountiful harvest of winter wheat in the Southwest Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, is virtually secured and must be recognized for the moment as a factor against any extreme sustained advance, when taken with our already liberal visible supply, allaying fears of immediate scarcity and temporarily overshadowing anxiety as to prospective supplies. This situation has had a quieting effect on speculative sentiment, and the trade is awaiting further developments. The most reliable authorities in the Northwest see no occasion to revise their recent estimates of a yield for the three states aggregating from 70,000,000 bushels to 90,000,000 bushels, and we do not believe that such a usually great surplus producing section, marketing much of its product in Europe, can harvest a crop from 100,000,000 bushels to 120,000,000 bushels less than an average without its being felt here and abroad. Receipts at Minneapolis and Duluth are very light, and likely to continue so, with cash wheat strong and Minneapolis millers taking practically everything. This situation is bound to be felt before long. Europe is beginning to show some anxiety and an inclination to anticipate requirements, making inquiries for wheat, and advacing bids to about a parity, but we look for the situation to be fully appreciated and recognized by the trade when Eastern men begin to bid for Duluth wheat, cost, insurance and freight.”— Norton & Switzer's Chicago Commercial Letter.

A report on the Klondike gold fields shows that the yield of the precious metal for the last three years has been: 1897, $2,500,000; 1898, $10,000,000; and 1899, $16,000,000. The director of the mint, George E. Roberts, estimates $300,000,000 to be the world's gold output for 1900.

Assayer and... Analytical Chemist

One of the most striking features to be considered in connection with quartz nining in Oregon is the fact that the formation is confined to no particular tract or district, but is distributed from one pod of the state to the other. After assurance was given that quartz mining was destined to be successful in this state, miners from Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico and the Black Hiils began to pour in, and to prospect the mountains and locate and develop c'aims. Where but a few years ago lay these undeveloped claims, we now have the rich gold fields of Eastern Oregon, the productive mines of the Bohemia (listrict and the attractive resources of thie southern part of the state.

per month dividend; Free Coinage, Bonanza, Red Boy, producing about $40,000 per month, and many others equally good, if not as prominent producers. Reports of ich strikes, in the different properties, formerly created considerable excitement among mining men. Of late these reports have come with such frequency as to be but little commented upon. However, reports of two rich strikes, made simultaneously in different parts of the state, again sent mining interest to fever heat, i. e., that on the Red Boy in Eastern Oregon, and the Knott, in the Bohemia district; the latter being on old abandoned shallow workings, which, upon renewed activity and deeper sinkings, showed wonderfully rich ore. This strongly confirmed the opinion of old and experienced miners that the deeper the workings the more gold will be found in the quartz.

Prominent among the mines of Bohemia are Musick, Grizzly and The Helen Mining Company, the latter owning 110 acres located on Grizzly Mountain, in the heart of the district. This latter is one of the very few mining propositions to be found anywhere which has been self-supporting from the start; enough cre and of sufficient value having been extracted during the process of development to place the mine on a basis where it is yielding the shareholder 20 per cent. per annum on his investment.

Southern Oregon, long famous for its placer workings, is rapidly gaining prominence with other sections of the state as a quartz mining district, it having been discovered in many of the older workings that the values in gold came from the lode formations, which, to the experienced eye, are easily traced. While comparatively few properties in this section are on a dividend-paying basis, no district boasts of more promising prospiects than those of Southern Oregon, prominent among them might be mentioned The May Queen and Greenback, both located in Josephine County. The latter was recently purchased for $30,000, and is now netting the owners about that per month.
