"xhe management of the road has little

matter of 'bulls and bears,' yet I think the
erudition of the country is such that it is

A HUGE FAILURE.
Chicago, August 20. The American
saia to e tne worm's
largest manufacturer of wheels and vehi
cles, is insolvent. iot)ie.tsutiar nas Deen
appointed receiver. The total assets are
given as 4,105,000 and the liabilities as
$1,800,009. The stringency of the money
market and the inability to secure the ex
tension of obligations caused the collapse.
All the plants of the company are tem
poral ily closed and the employes idle.
Those most heavily interested caused the
appointment of the receiver and assert
that the company will be able to liquidate
all indeOtedness and pay the stockholders
dollar for dollar on their investment. The
comnanv's nrincinal works are in Indiana.
Ohio and Michigan, but it has plants in
New York, Pennsylvania and Massachu
setts. It is an Illinois corporation, but has
little property in this state. Principal
stockholders are in Indiana.
Receiver Butler was appointed by Judge
Woods, of the United States district court
for northern Indiana, and by United States
District Judge Blodgett. of this city. The
bill asking a receiver states that tho assets
consist of sites, manufacturing plants,
machinery, products, etc, divided as fol
lows: Indiana, 51,300,000; Ohio, l,000f000;
Michigan, 440,000; Pennsylvania, 220,000;
New York, ?S5,000; Massachusetts, 50,000,
and Illinois, 10,000. The liabilities are
made up of bills of exchange, promissory
notes, indebtedness for labor, etc.
The corporation was organized in De
cember, 1S84, and business was at once
begun on a large scale. Tho business has
been carrbd on at a profit until within the
last six months, since when it has been
extremely dull, and, to make matters
wore, the financial stringency caused the
creditors to refuse accommodations. Its
creditors became impaired and it was un
able to pay large obligations falling due
from dav to day. The bill sets forth that
the manufacturers of vehicles throughout
the country are largely dependent on it
for wheels, as it supplies seven-eighths of
the entire demand of tho country. A re
ceiver was appointed in order that the
plants might be kept in operation, and
prevent forced sales at, a sacrifice, to the
detriment of the many creditors and the
injury of the employes.
Louisville, Ky., August 20. Suit was
brought in the federal court iiere today in
behalf of Clayton Woodman, of Illinois,
for the appointment of a receiver for the
Kentucky Wheel Stock compan'. The
company is insolvent, and Noble C. Butler
has already been appointed by the federal
court in Indiana, woodman and other
ptockholders are creditors to the extent of
330,000, and they fear that outside cred
itors might by attachments force a sale of
the property and the stockholders thereby
be heavy losers.
ANOTHER FINANCIAL SCHEME.
Topeka, August 20,--Alf red P. Westrup,
of Chicago, editor of the Auditorium, the
organ ofTho mutual banking propaganda,
is in the city to explain to the Alliance
leaders tho financial plan he is. advocating
Westrup Is an avowed anarchist and doe
not believe in government. Consequently
he does not take much interest in the sub
treasury scheme of the people's party.
What he wants is a mutual organisation
which will issue its own money regardless
of tho government and entirely indepen
dent of it. His plan is to make all prop
erty, whether personal or real, a basis of
credit for its owuer, who will put in an
appearance at the office of the mutual
banking propaganda, register there his be
longings, and on the strength of it receive a
receipt which will entitle him to a
certain amount of credit, the understand
ing being that his property is ample secur
ity for its payment.
These receipts or certificates of credit are
intended to circulate freely as money which
Westrup thinks they will do without
trouble, lie has been in the.,cityseveral
days talking his plan over quietly with the
leaders of the new party, llu portrayed to
the financiers in the new party tho advan
tage of his more advanced ideas and urged
them to use their influence in securing for
his scheme the indorsement of the People's
party in its platform in this state. Tie as
sured them that the People's party of
Kansas had progressed further on tliisline
of thought than any other in the country,
and he insisted that they were sufficiently
advanced in financial education to take
the study of his higher course.
The Kausans, while they are in favor of
all the money they can get from the sub
treasury and everything else in the list of
categories of the proposed financial legis
lation, are nardly prepared at this time to
take the power ot making money from the
govern ment, piovided tht- government will
make enough for them. They promised
Mr. Westrup, after he had answered all
the knotty questions propounded to him,
that they would take the matter under

ATCmsos.Kau , August 20. The Frank
lin Bank, of ?t. Louis, today filed a suit in
tho district court against Howell, Jewett
& Co , George W. Howell. S. It. Howell,
II. N. Jewett and II. C. Solomon, the
Firbt national Bank of Chicago, aud all
cieditois of the Howells who brought
suits, attachments and garnishments, ask
ing that .i receiver bo appointed for the
Howell lumber yards in this city, and
praying for a temporary injunction tore
strain any parties from disposing of any
part of the Howell's interests in this city,
now in tho hands of the First National
Bank of Chicago. The action is similar to
the one brought by the Wisconsin Lumber
company against the Howells iu Chicago a
few days ago. The object is to get the
property into the hands of a leceiver for
the benefit of all the creditors. Tho claim
of the Franklin bank amounts to $17,000.
ATLANTA, Ga., August 20 The South
ern Lumber compauv, worth $300. 000, with
three mills and owning about 3,500 acres of
timber land, is now iu tho bauds of a re
ceiver, with liabilities estimated at S123,
000. The stringency in the money market
prevented the compauy from paying its
laborers, and tho property was attached
lor the laboreis.
Boston, August 20. The contesting
boards of directors of the San Diego Land
and Town company have finally agreed to
leave tho question of the control of the
property to the supremo court of Kansas.

THE UNIFORM BILL OF LADING.
CllICAuo. August 20. The National
TransportHtiou association, composed of
various iKurds of trade and commercial
bodies of the United States, completed a
two days' session today. The association
was organized last winter for the purpose
of protecting tho shipping interests of the
country Hganist the railroad corporations
ami of securing better rates and transpor
tation facilities. Seventeen commercial
exchftnges and freight bureaus were repre
sented. The principal topic of discussion
today was a uuitorm bill of ladimr, about
which there was such a bitter hirht be
tween the shippeis and the rauroads last
ear, when tne latter were defeated m
their efforts to force upon the merchants
an ironclad non-aegotiable instrument.
The shippers insist upou having a voice la
the construction of a bill of lading de
signed for general Use, aud they recently
agreed upon a form that does not conflict
with their interests. How best to bring
about the adoption of this form by the
railroads was the question considered to
day Finally it was decided to appoint a
commutes to lay the matter before the va
rious t rurtic associations, m the hope thnt
an amicable agreement can be reached.
Another committee was appointed to draw
up a proposition to tne railroads to base
all through rates on tne sums of tne locals
via lake uorts.
A PLANTERS' COMBINE.
MEMPHIS. Tenn., August 20. Two hun
dred white and colored inrmers from West
Tennessee, North Mississippi and Eastern
Arkansas met iu this city yesterday and
entered into an agreement to pav no more
than 50 cents per hundred pou Jds for cotton-picking
this season This action was.
due to thelow price of cotton and the ex
travogant rates paid for picking in former
sea -o us, which oannot now bo alTordod.
An effort has b8n made to get the Alli
ance to take up the matter, o as to msttre
unanimity of action, but that bod v is too
buy attending to politics to spare time to
a matter that affects the material welfare
ot tue iarmers.
THE CHICAGO GRAIN MARKET.
I CniCAGO, August LU Tne gram mar-
j sets were again letmauauu duujcuii w
rapid and wide variations in price in tne
early trading this morning. Wheat and
contmuea exciteu, wiin occasiouiu
snells of dullness, and closed with decided
advances; but corn, after opening excitedly
higher, grew dull and weak and failed to
respond to the later advances in other
cereals. This was due to fears of manipu
lation by a clique, which is said to com
prise a number of heavy local houses with
eastern backing, who are supposed to be
preparing a corner in September. There
were also suspicions of manipulation in
December wheat, but the evidence was not
conclusive, as the news of the day was
sufficient with itself, taking into consid
eration the nervous condition of the mar
ket, to cause tho advance made. The
trading in wheat was very animated at the
higher range of prices, and a repetition of
the panicky state of affairs existing on last
Saturday and Monday appeared imminent
for a moment or two. The news of the
day was strongly bullish.
THE CHINESE RESTRICTION LAW.
Portland, Ore., August 20. There ar
rived here on the Canadian Pacific
steamer Talchow five Chinamen, three of
whom claim that they were merchants
here before going home, and so wore enti
tled to land, and the other two claim they
are entitled to land on the ground that
they are British subjects, having been nat
uralized in British Columbia. They have
their naturalization papers, and also a
certificate from the collector of customs at
Vancouver. The customs officials here
are in a quandary over the matter. They
doubt the propriety of refusing British
subjects permission to land, but are not
certain that the collector of customs is the
proper person to issue a certificate, and
theieis also a doubt as to whether a
Chinaman, having become a British sub
ject, ceases to be a Chinaman within the
meaning of the restriction act. In regard
to the other three, tho collector has been
instructed to permit them to land if they
show satisfactory proofs that they have
heretofore been merchants here.
