The American Economist says:
A stroll, through the wholesale
dry goods district of New York City
will convince the most skeptical
that wholesale houses, large and
small, are taking advantage of this
era of Gorman Free-Trade to buv
everything in their line anywhere
but in the United States. The side
walks along the dry goods sections
are blocked with those, strong,
heavy boxes bearing the inscription
','Made in England," "Made in
France," "Made in Germany," &c.
This looks to the casual obsever
like good times and prosperity, but
when we consider that when
each one of these foreign boxes and
bales throws a dampening shower
on our own furnace fires, and that
the prosperity is over the water and
not here, the whole business as
sumes another aspect. An employe
of the New York Custom House has
stated that during his twenty years
of service he has never before seen
such a volnme of imports as is now
entering the country. The whole
custom house force, as well as
many substitutes, are employed on
full time. This is prosperity for
the custom house employee, but it
is destitution for the American
Work of the Legislature-
The. legislature, which adjourned
las I week passed a total of 129 bills,
exceeding the number of any pre
vious legislature for many sessions.
The total number passed in the
1893 session was seventy, in the
1891 seventy-seven, and in the 1889
118. Ot the bills passed this session
seventy-four originated in the
house and fifty-seven in the senate.
A few of the more important are
The bill prohibiting the sale or
use of oleomargerine and butterine
and its manfacture except for ex

as any bill that was passed.
The legislature also reduced the
interest on state warrants from 7
per cent to 5, which will make a
very material saving to the state.

UNSPEAKABLE WILDE CASE.
Oscar and His Friend Taylor Remanded
For a Week Without Bail.
London. April 11. An immense
throng was gathered outside and inside
of the Bow street police station today,
when Oscar Wilde and Alfred Taylor
were brought from the prison at an early
hour in a Black Maria iu order to be ex
amined on remand, on the charge of
having committed serious misdemean
ors. The court opened at 11 o'clock
with both prisoners in the dock.- Wilde
looked haggard and worn and it was no
ticed that he has greatly changed since
he appeared on the witness stand of the
Old Bailey to prosecute his suit for libel
against the Marquis of Queensberry, the
collapse of which action in such an un
expected and sensational manner led to
his arrest and the subsequent terrible
discloures. Wilde today was much
more subdued, although he smiled once
or twice at certain questions which were
put to him.
Taylor, Wilde's fellow prisoner, the
man who is charged with acting as pro
curer for the author and dramatist, be
haved in the same sneeringly indifferent
manner as when arraigned last week,
and was evidently not so deeply im
pressed -with- the- seriousness, of the
charges brought against him as was
Wilde. The prisoners are evidently
making a desperate fight. Tho lawyers
today delayed the proceedings in every
possible way, and the examination of
the accused promises to be a protracted
Charles Parker, the 19-year-old boy
who was examined on Saturday last.
and 'who related at length on the stand,
giving the most minute details, his inti
macy with Wilde, was again placed in
the witness box today. He was sub
jected to cross-examination by Sir Ed
ward Clarke, but his testimony was not
shaken. Prosecutor Gill next placed
on the stand a man named Fred Atkins,
20 years of age, and described as a var
iety singer. Atkins, in reply to ques
tions put to him by Mr. Gill, said that
Wilde took him to Paris in 1893 Furth
er testimony furnished by the same wit
ness was similar to that given by young
men and boys who have been previous
ly examined in this extraordinary case.
After the police had presented evi
dence concerning his arrest, Wilde and
Taylor were remanded for a week, bail
Crossed the Shander Pass.
Calcutta, April 11. A dispatch from
Simla, dated noon today, says that Col
onel Kelly, the commander of the Brit
ish forces which have been attempting
to reach Chitral from Gilgit since .March
25, has succeeded in crossing the Shan
der pass and was about 60 miles from
Chitral on April 7. The march of the
troops was a most arduous and brilliant
military exploit. The pass is 12,000 feet
high and is impassable to beasts of bur
den. Consequently tho pioneers had to
carry the field and mountain guns dur
ing the last seven miles of the route
throug'b deep snow and with the weather
intensely cold. The troops suffered in
many cases from frost bites.
Russia a Good Neighbor.
Friedrichsruh, April 1J. Prince
Bismarck, replying to a deputation rep
resenting the Germans in Odessa today,
begged his hearers to foster the politi
cal friendship, which, he insisted, was
so necessary to. both Germany and Rus
sia, adding: "Russia is certainly a bet
ter neighbor than many another,"

Forty Ccats Per Kami.
Pittsburg, April 11. The oil excite
ment here continues unabated. The
Standard put their price up 15 cents, to
$1 50. On the exchange cash oil opened
at $1.50 and sold np to $1.60. The open
ing sale was a cash order for 1,000 bar
rels at $1.50 and the next sale was made
at $1.58. The first sale in May op
tions was at $1.60 and it was then bid
up to $1.68.
This is the highest oil has been sines
1877, when it sold as high as $3.53.
Sneculation. which has hitherto been
confined to National transit certificates,
has been transferred to Mellon pipe line
certificates, and a sale of 1,000 barrels
was made here today.
So far this week the advance amounts
to 40 cents per barrel by the Standard,
and 43 cents on the exchange for the
May option. To the producers of west
ern Pennsylvania and West virgini
this means $37,500 a day more than they
were getting for their oil last week, or
an increase of $1,125,000 per month.
The total market value of the product
is nearly 13.000.000 per month. It has
greatly stimulated activity in the field.

Overland Passenger Rates
Los Angeles, April 11. It is possible
that overland nassenger rates may be
slashed in consequence of the Southern
Pacific havinsr criveu notice that it will
withdraw from the sale of tickets to St.
Paul and Minnesota points by way of El
Paso, Fort Worth and Kansas City and
also by way of Ogden and Kansas City.
This is a direct blow at the Texas and
Pacific, the Missouri, Kansas and Texas
and the Rock Island; also the Missouri
Pacific from Pueblo, Colo. The Santa
Fe has not shown any intention of fol
lowing the lead of the Southern Pacific,
so its second class will remain at $47.90
to St. Paul and Minnesota points, while
the Southern Pacific rate will be $54.20
The Iron Mountain road has withdrawn
from the passenger association, and
what action taken by the roads unfavor
ably affected remains to be seen.

Mr. Lowenthal addressed the com
mittee at length regarding the associa
tion's condition. He explained that the'
president of the association, Adlai F.
Stevenson, vice president of the United
States, was in the habit of receiving
$300 a month in payment for his serv
ices as attorney. He also spoke cf thf.
alleged illegal methods employed in is
suing shares of stock. The total ainoun-,
alleged to have been illegally paid out
by the association during its existence
was said to be $169,000. His resolution
recites many instances of alleged viola
tions of the statutes in making loans,
etc.; alleges that the association is main
taining in Chicago an expensive office
and agent at a large salary and that the
income from the business of this office
does not equal 25 per cent of the ex
Loaned oa Worthless Security.
It alleges further that the association,
through its worthless management in
Chicago, has lost for the stockholders at
least 50,000; that about 40 foreclosure
suits have been begun against it and
that it has acquired title to land by
foreclosure proceedings which have not
been reported in the last statement to
the state auditor. It cites further that
H, C. Bunn, son of T. J. Bunn, secre
tary of the association, is agent in Chi
cago and as such has obtained from his
father large sues of stockholders'
money which has loaned on worth
less security beoruse by so doing he got
extortionate commissions and refused to
pay borrowers large sums of this money
when the same became due and payable,
and alio wad liens to be filed against
borrowers' premises so he could buy
the m up at small per centages; and that
he constantly refused to make good
loans because applicants refused extor
tionate demands made upon them for
large commissions, by which means he
has sunk and squandered thousands of
dollars of the stockholders' money.
Oflcers Seceired Stockholders.
It cites further that the officers of the
association far the purpose of deceiving
stockholders had never issued to them a
report of its true condition, but continue
unlawfully to use and appropriate the
stockholders' money to their own indi
Secretary T. J. Bunn, who was pres
ent, was invited to make a statement-
He-admitted that the statements re-'
garding money paid Vice President
Stevenson and his law .partner, Mr.
Ewing, were true. He also admitted
some of the other charges made by Mr.
Lowenthal except that the association
was insolvent. The association, ho said,
was solvent to the extent of over $50,-
000. He justified the payment of the
money to Vice President Stevenson and
his partner by a clause in the associa
tion's charter, permitting tho associa
tion to employ any one needed to per
form whatever was in it3 interests. The
committee voted to adopt the resolution

Sent Out Counterfeit Stamps.
Hamilton, Out., April 11. The per
son who is supposed to have sent out the
counterfeit stamps as announced in a
dispatch from Chicago came here sev
eral weeks ago and gave his name as
George Morrison. He is about 30 years
of age. He said his business was buy
ing and selling bankrupt stocks. April
2 he rented an old paintshop on Bang
William street and opened the Canadian
Novelty and Supply company. The
next day he departed saying he was
going to Toronto to establish there.
April 5 Mrs. Mack, his clerk, got in
structions by letter to send an adver
tisement to Printer's Ink, offering $115
worth of United States 2 cent stamps
for sale for $100. Another communica
tion from Morrison instructed her to
send all his mail matter to Toronto.
Poet Takan Home by Royal Command.
Chicago, April 11. Otto A. Dreier,
Danish vice consul, left Chicago for
Denmark with Gasta Blomgren, a poet
from Finland, who is taken home by
royal command. Blomgren has the
distinction of being a protege of the
dowager empress, Maria Feodorovna, a
daughter of Kmg Christian IX of Den
mark and a sister of the Princes3 of
Wales. The poet had written and sung
