in the Street.
New Yoke, Nov. 12J The stock market
today showed a materially better feeling
both in the street and on the outside, and
there was a most gratifying confidence dis
played, that not only was the worst now
over, but that the improvement would bo
quick and sharp. The action of the clear
ing house committee, in coming to the re
lief of the banks in difficulty, was the
means of restoring the confidence of many.
"while the improvement in tho situation
abroad was also a powerful factor to that
end. Not only were the active stocks
of the first hour still continued, but a
better tone was noticed over all the list.
New York, Nov. 12, 2:30 p. m. The

THE TOST'S REVIEW.
. New Your, Nov. 12. The Evening Post,
in its financial article, says:
"The immediate effect of the decision of
the New York clearing house, to issue cer
tificates to be used in the settlement of
balances, was to allay the apprehensions
of a bauk panic, and, in that respect, had
a beneficial effect, in helping the recovery
from 1 to 3 per cent in the stock market
during the first hour of business. But
while it relieved these apprehensions, it
did not decrease the demand for money,
and on the stock exchange the rates were
still up i to 1 per cent per day, besides the
legal rate of C per cent per annum."

much more effective than had been any
other association ever in the field. Rates

which will create lasting peace to South

that one of his sons may become an Atchi

Mr. Gould was besieged by reporters in
regard to the report in a morning paper
on tne union x'acmc aeai. lie was re-
maintaining good rates on its traffic, and
will probably continue to be operated with
conservatism in its traffic affairs."
Mr. Geo. C. Magoun, chairman of the
Atchison board, replied to an inquiry as
follows: "All southwestern lines have
agreed to strengthen rates, and efforts are
being made to join all lines west of Chi
cago and St. Louis, including southwest
ern, northwestern and all transcontinental
lines, upon a like basis, namely, a small
general committee, to control rates and to
introduce the many economies exDected to
result from joint or common a'gents at
competitive points. No interchange of
directors has been suggested or contem
plated." A special from York says that Mr. Gould
was asked this morning whether he was
securing control of the Union Pacific. He
replied that he was not giving away his
own business. He further said: "I am
not buying anything I can't pay for."
THE TRANSFER OF FUNDS.
Washixgtox, Nov. 12. The secretary of
the treasury today authorized the assist
ant secretary of the treasury, at San Fran
cisco, to receive denodts of fnnds from
bankers desiring to transfer the same by
telegraph to the assistant treasurer at
New York. This is done to enable persons
in New York having funds in San Fran
cisco, that are needed there, to transfer
them for immediate use in New York. The
department will also accord this privilege
to other points at which there are sub
treasuries, should it act as a means of af
fording any relief at the present time.

"Will you exert an influence upon the

Mr. Gould smiled and hesitated before
his reply. "I am acquainted with some of

he said. "I might have some influence, if
I chose to exert it. There is great dissatis
faction over the conduct of many of the
railroads. Tiiero is an uprising which
ought to effect great reforms in the man
agements, for the roads have enough busi
ness to give them large profits, if they
can obtain proper rates. In the southwest
we have made progress toward perfecting
an arrangement which will establish sta
ble rates. There has been no conference
today, that I know of, on the subject. The
progress as made today is probably the re
sult of previous conferences. Stockholders
are aroused and indignant over the result
of the warring in rates. The best way to
express the si. uation might bo to say that
if the railroad elections were to take place
now the results might be as surprising as
were tne recent political elections.
Mr. Rockefeller, whose nnme was con
nected with the interview, said: "So far
as I am concerned, there is uothing to the
storv. I have not seen Mr. Gould, nnd I
have no iuterest m the Union Pacific, I
will not sneak for my brother, but I don't
believe that he has had anything to do

what was said to bo the evasion of the di
rect issue as to tho Union Pacific control

A similar view was taken by the bulls
of the Boston dispatch, wfiich quoted
President Charles Francis Adams as fol
lows: "I am absolutely ignorant of the
alleged facts in Mr. Gould's alleged inter
view, and greatly question whether Mr.
Gould made any such remarks. The
Union Pacific is not negotiating with any
railroad; is at iieace with all tho world, u
maintaining rates on its traffic, and vi!l

in its traffic affairs." Union Pacific di
rectors were also quoted as denying the
story, aud houses in Wall street with ex

idea that Mr. Gould had obtained posses

New York, Nov. 12. The Evening Post
"The stories about the Union Pacific

the report in a morning paper that he was

Serpent, was lost at a point twenty miles
north of Cape Finisterre. Out of a total
of 250 sou s on board, only three were
saved. The Serpent went on the rocks
during a storm on Monday night. A heavy
mist prevailed at the time of the disaster.
Owing to the violence of the storm, it was
impossible to send assistance from the
shore. Tremendous seas swept the deck
of the doomed vessel, carrying away group
after group of the unfortunate men on
board. Tiie news of the wreck was con

The newspaper offices at Plymouth

Among those were the sobbing wives and

SAM WOOD'S DEFEAT.
HUGOTOX, Kan., Nov. 9. Special. The
greatest victory for the people of Stevens
county is the defeat of Sam Wood for
county attorney, by the Hon. Wm. O'Con
nor. Wood and his followers have trav
ailed, day and night, for nearly a month to
elect him, and after all, he was beaten by
ten votes, in the county. Had O'Connor
and his friends worked as hard, he would
have carried the county by at least seventy-five
majority. Mr. O Connor was re
cently appointed county nttorney by
Judge Botkin, to fill a vacancy caused by
the resignation of J. L. Pancoast, and has
filled the office so acceptably to his con
stituents that even his enemies admitted
his qualifications and fitness for the office.
Always conducting himself with credit
and discharging his duties without fear or
favor, he .has fairly won the praise ofalL
Had Wood been elected, as all your readers
well know, endless trouble would have re

people can rest in peace and quietude for
the next two years, or as long as our pres
ent county nttorney fills this position.
Harmouy will be supreme, and tho county
will once more join the procession as one
among the most prosperous counties of

matter before the Western Freight asso

and Alton of its intention to put into
effect on November 25, a rate of eighteen

cents to East St. Lonis. This notice re
ceived an adverse vote. The Chicago and

under the rules, that the rates would be
established notwithstanding. Subsequent

basis of the Alton's notice, the rates thus
determined to be submitted to an adjourn
ed meeting of the association on Tuesday
