Early loans on call were made at 7 to 7% per cent., and a decline in prices set in after t'he open? ing which carried the level generally below that of last night's closing.

- KOTES OF XBE 8HIPPISO. Inhms of Itcrost Gathered Fri-m Every wht ro. The Judge Advocate General of the Navy has just rendered an opinion 10 the effect that a naval vessel is nc t required to employ a pilot in entering or leaving a harbor of the United States and it remains discretionary with the captain to accept the services of a Slate pilot. This is as it should be and Hie same ruling should apply to the masters of all American vessels, provided they are competent navigators and familiar with the different harbors, and there are many such. To compel a vessel captain to accept the services of a pilot when ' the former is fully capable of guiding his ship is a downright imposi? tion and should be abolished. It should net be assumed that the State pilot service is indispensible to safety. Cor that Is absurd. 'Why, there is not even a sea-going tug pilot in New York v bo does not know every inch of water and the different shoals, and a vessel is just as safe in their hands. It. a ?c...
