Effect of the Prospect for an Increase in
Ni:w York. April 25. R. & Dun & Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade says: Tho mar
kets arc all influenced by the prospect of
an increase in currency based on sjlver.
Silver has advanced about 2 cents per
ounce, wheat 2. cents per bushel, onts 3
cents, coffee and oil ' cent each, cotton
1-10 cent, pork 25 cents per barrel, and
F-tocks have been stronger. The average of
prices for all commodities rose over l" per
cent from tho 16th to the 22nd, but has
fcince declined about )4 lor cent.
Trade reports this week are favorable
except from the region affected by the al
most unprecedented floods in the IVlissis
fcippi valley. Three of the trunk lines are
interrupted and the loss will be consider
able. But at all northern centers of traae
the situation is very satisfactory; tho vol
ume of business is large and collections
are fairly prompt. And while the money
market is easy where fairly supplied, the
demand at most places is out moderate.
At Boston fair weather has stimulated all
trades; at Chicago the increase
in business extends to neirly aU
branches; at St. louis distribution is
fairly active and tho northwestern cities
are all rejoicing over excellent crop pros
pects. Tho iron and coal cities, Phila
delphia and Pittsburg, make less encourag
ing reports, but there also other branches
vt trade are fairly active. The iron biiM
ii' s is more hopeful in tone at Philadel
prja but at Pittsburg the decline in prices
mntinues and at New York southern iron
of the lower grades is still pressed for sale.
No improvement is seen in the wooleu
hinunfacture and dear cotton does not
help the market.
The exports of grain continue larce, not
nithstundingthtt advance in prices, and
runiishes the only reasonable excuse for
that advance. In any event a large sur
plus of wheat will remain on hand July 1.
Cotton receipts and exports are both fall
ing far Kdiind last year. No reason is per
cened beyond speculative activity for ad-
ance in Krk or in oats, but the lwlief
that the currency will be greatly expanded
tends just now to render all price. some
what ficticious. The minor metals are
steady, with more demand for lead at $8.95,
tmd tm a shade higher at ?3.15.
The leather market has shown some
speculative activity, and while boots and

MINNEAPOLIS FLOUR OUTPUT.
"Minneapolis. Minn., April 25. The
Northwestern Miller says: "The flour
output last week was somewhat larger,
the five Pillsbury mills grinding 65,00d
barrels. The aggregate production for the
week was 121,1") barrels, apain-t 114,100
the i eek before, and 100,500 barrels for the
corresponding time in 1SS9. "While three
of the mills idle 'last weak are now in
operation, about an cqnal capacity has
been shut down on account of the inter
ference of the water improvements or
rom accidents. The flour market is
strong, but sales are restricted to
comparatively small limits, and do
nqt equal the manufacture. The export
shipments for last week were 35,270 bbls,
against 27,950 bbls the proceeding -week.
There were 795,550 bu wheat received
for the -week ending April 23, against 523,
480 -same time last year. Shipments:
wheat 165,000 bu; flour 119,1S7 bbls; mill
stuff 3,413 tons.
The spring -wheat crop has gone into the
ground under the most promising con
ditions. It is late but otherwise there is
now no justifiable complaint from any
large section of an unfavorable situation.
There has been more or less rain the past
few days throughout the northwest, the
heaviest showers falling where they were
needed the most. There appears to be no
place now suffering for rain.
The Question of Its Manufacture by
St. Paul, Minn., April 25. President
Ball of the Farmers' Alliance has succeed
ed in having the question of manufacture
of binding twine by convicts reopened. A
committee sent cast by the last legislature
to visit the various brandies of the bind
ing twine trust reported on their return
that the scheme was entirely impracticable
on account of the immense cost of con
structing a- plant, and because binding
twine could not be successfully made from
flax, and the labor would be iinprofitable,
as it would come in competion with the
very cheapest class of labor women and
girls. So successfully did the Farmers'
Alliance president refute these statements
yesterday that the governor appointed a
committee to make another investigation
and report to him upon the practicability
and desirability of establishing a twine
factory at the state prison. This commis
sion will go east early in Alay and make a

ITS USE UNCHANGED BY CONTRACT.
Topeka, Kan., April 25. The railroad
commissioners have been called upon to
decide a case similar to that brought be
fore the inter-state commission by the citi
zens of Lawrence. This case was brought
by the citizens of North Topeka against
the Rock Island Company for failing to

Tho commissioners, after reviewing the
'"The solution of this matter is found in
a decision of the inter-state commerce com
mission, D. S. Alford vs. the Chicago,
Rock Ibland & Pacific Railway Company,
April 9. 18SK), in wliich the facts are pre
cisely similar, the people of Lawrence seek
ing to compel the Rock Island to stop
its trains and do husness at the station
of the Union Pacific in North Lawrence.
In tliis case the commission held: 'In the
absence of statutory provisions, the rights
of a railroad company under a hiwful
agreement for a specified use of the tracks
of another railroad company are measured
in respect to the track used by the terms
of the contract, and the provisions of the

authority for the use of the tracks.' Wo
conceive" this to be ji full and sufficient

ton will he Investigated Mr.
Breckinridge Urges the Most
Complete Search into
Little Rock, Ark., April 25. The Clayton-Breckinridge
examined about seventy-five witnesses to
day, nearly all of whom were negroes.
The latter testified that they voted, at the
White River precinct in Woodruff" county
at the presidential election in November,
each swearing that he cast a straight Re
publican ticket containing the name of
John M. Clayton as a candidate for con
gress. Last night County Clerk Ferguson, of
Woodruff county, Jndge McClure, at
torney for the parties to the investigation,
and J. H. Herrod, attorney for contestee,
counted the ballots in the White river
box. This morning they reported to the
committee that they found the result to be
210 votes for Breckinridge and forty-three
for Clayton. The majority of the negroes
who testified were unable to read and
could not tell whether the tickets
shown them were the ones they voted or
not. They were positive, however, of hav
ing voted for Clayton. In very few cases
the ballots show they had voted for Breck
inridge. In this state a number is written
on the ticket corresponding to the number
opposite the name of the voter in the poll
books so that it is very easy to ascertain
the ticket cast by each voter. In nearly
all tho cases where a negro unable to
read had cast his vote the ballot produced
was a straight Democratic one.
The committee will proceed tomorrow
with the examination of about forty wit
nesses from Pine Bluff. Next week about
500 witnesses from Howard township, Con
wjiy county, in wliich Plumerville, the
place where Colonel Clayton was assassi
nated is situated, will be here to give testi
mony. The committee will endejivor not
only to elicit evidence that will reveal the
identity of the parties who stole the ballot
box in that township, but will also try to
find out who it wjis that killed Clayton.
Mr. Breckinridge stated to the commit
tee today that he hoped the investigation
would take the widest scope. Judge Mc
Clure asked Judge Djint, the county judge
of Woodruff county, if he was not a mem
ber of the so-called irrigation society of
Woodruff county. Mr. Harrod, attorney
for contestant, objected to the question,
as the society has been organized since
the election aud had nothing to do
with the ease undergoing examination,
Judge McGuire said that he wanted to
show thiit the society grew out of the elec
tion troubles of 18M5, and that the mem
bers were responsible for the election
frauds in that county.
Mr. Breckinridge arose and asked that
his jittorneys withdraw their objection,
saying that if it were necessary.for the
committee to investigate the society to ac
complish its object, lie would place noth
ing in the way of its doing so. He
hoped the committee would send for
books and pjipers of the organization
and give them a thorough examination.
The committee thought the evidence in
competent and declined to permit. Judge
McClure to ask any further questions on
Judge Dent farther testified that he had
been county judw of Woodruff county for
six years and at elections he alwjiys ap
pointed two Democratic and one Republi
can as judges for each election precinct,
but always had difficulty in finding the
Republicans who would serve.

Batos Rouge, La., April 25. The
steamer Dakotah, Captain McRhee com
manding, has reached here from the over
fiowed.districts and put off five or sis hun
dred people and. a large quantity of stock.
The people put off were mostly all negroes
who found no difficulty in getting work.
Several planters from the interior were
here for the purpose of getting labor for
ineir plantations. ne juasotan yesteraay
went up as far as New Texas landing, res
cuing people and stock along the route.
The boat transported about 1,500 people to
this side and could have brought many
more but the people said the river was fall

chances in Point Coupee,
Captain Mitchell said the break in Old

feet wide, while the break in Grand levee
just before was 1,000 feet wide and

nature. As these levees are three miles in
length only a comparptively small portion
of these great works have yet been de

Bosses and Carpenters will Confer, Al
though Both are Stubborn.
CHICAGO, 111., April 25. This afternoon
the joint committee of the striking carpen
ters, the new boss carpenters' association
and the citizens' arbitration committee,
sent a note to President Goldie, of the
builders' and traders' exchange, asking
him to jjppoint a time for a meeting with
a view to a settlement of the pending
strike. Mr. Goldie replied that he, to
gether with the directors and some of the
members of the exchange, would meet and
confer with the citizens' committee at
noon tomorrow, with the new boss
carpenters' committee at 2 p. m.,
and with tho carpenters committee
at 3 p. m. in the builders exchange. It re
mains to be seen whether tho joint com
mittee will consent to be thus split up
into its constituent elements. Not much
is hoped for from the conference, should
it take place, inasmuch as President
Goldie says that the Carpenters' union
will under no circumstances be recog
nized, while the strikers declare that they
will never return to work until such
recognition is granted. The best that they
expect from the conference is to put them
on record and when that is done they will
probably make terms with the new bosses'
jissociation which claims to have an em
ploying capacity of 4,500 men.
Ths strikers say that in addition to
these the owners of buildings in course of
erection are ready when notified to do so
to take the contracts from the old bosses
and turn them over to the carpenters
for completion and in this way
work will be furnished for 1,500 additiomil
men. They say that allowing that the new
bosses can" permanently employ 3,000 men
this would leave them with only 1,500 men
left, whom they could easily support in
definitely. President Rowland, of the Brotherhood
of Carpenters and Joiners of America, es
timates tiiat unless their demands for
eight hours is conceded at least 100,003 car
penters will be found on strike in this
country on May 1. The chaotic condition
of the eight .hour movement at present
may lead to a resuscitation of the eight
hour jissociation which controlled the sum '
lar agitations in 18S0. A meeting will 1)3

A Pocket Mirror Tree to Smokers of
Cycling Bud for the Youiip.
Dr. Richardson admits that smco he first
warned us of tho dangers of immoderate
cycling changes have taken place in the con
struction of both bicycles and tricycles which
materially modify the old drawbacks. He is
still, however, of opinion that cycling should
never be practiced by boys and girls, since it
differs from other excesses in the fact that
it molds the bodily framework, as it were,
to its own mode of motion; ad riders in
course of time almost invariably acquire
what he calls the "cyclist's figure," which
is not graceful, and is not indicative of the
possession of perfectly balanced powers. In
brief, this eminent sanitary authority is con
vinced that Mr. Punch's picture of the do
formed skeleton of the cyclist of tho future,
though overdrawn, was not altogether wide
of the mark. Of two things at least he is
satisfied. They are that the temptation of
competition is to an earnest and practiced
cyclist a "demon of danger," and that the
systematic pursuit of cycling should never be
fully coninituced before the age of 2L Lon
Chllllnc the Feet.
A medical authority, Dr. Hande, says that
the imprudent act of getting out of bed with
out protecting tho feet has caused more dis
ease to women previously healthy than could
result from any other imprudence. The sud
den exposure of tho feet to cold has brought
on many an attack of cellulitis. Herald of
