Yesterday's noteworthy advances in rrlces of
stocks were primarily due to the existence of a
Urge outstanding short Interest. Manipulation
against the shorts was also obvious and In the
hands of strong and resourceful interests. The
bidding up of stocks carried prices Bwiftly away
from the bears In the very crisis of their dis
tress, and there was a notable recalling of
stocks which have been loaned to the shorts on
advantageous terms for a long time paet. This
could only be the result of powerful manipula
tion to force the shorts to buy stocks to cover.
But while these facts were obviously true the
upward reaction could hardly have been pre
cipitated or extended to the lengths it has with
out a strong revulsion of speculative sentiment
from the depression which has Induced the liqui
dation for some time past. Almost the entire
credit for this revulsion must be given to the
growing conviction, strengthened by significant
admissions from authoritative sources, that ac
tive negotiations are going forward between the.
anthracite coal operators and miners, and that a
basis of settlement ha been formulated with
good hops of success. The violence of recovery
In prices on this development ki astonishing,
considering the email Impression 'that has been
ciade upon the prices of coal-carrying railroads
since the strike has been In force, and which
has given the lmprrislon that there was little
short selling being done cn account of the strike.
This supposition will scarcely hold in view of
the large bear account, which was disclosed by
the conviction that a strike settlement is Immi
nent. But It must be borne In mind that when
prices are once forcibly diverted In a given di
rection Tu 'Wall street sentiment in all points Is
made to conform to the new order of things.
The mercurial minds of the speculators. In con
formity with this rule, yesterday threw off all
their lowering apprehensions of the coming
stringency of the money market. The downward
plunge of steiling exchange of a full halt cent
on the pound for both actual and posted rates
helped to this result. Commercial LIU of ex
change for cotton are coming forward In such
force as to relieve apprehension as to the ability
of the New York money market to meet its fu
ture obligations on the German and British ex
chequer loans without export of gold. The
strength of the stock market, growing Into buoy
ancy, was continuous after an opening dip in
prices, due to the chagrin of the bears', who
were driven to cover Wednesday right on a
rumor of the coal strike settlement, which was
not confirmed yesterday morning. The extreme
advance in the coalers ran up to 34 in New
Jersey Central, and the leading speclaltlej and
local traction stocks recovered from 2 to 3t
rlnts. In the active railroad list net gains of
to 2 points are the rule, with ths closing ac
tive and strong at about the top.
Bonds Improved in sympathy with stocks. the
speculative issues leading. Total sales at par
value were 3&0.000. United States new fours
advanced U In the bid price.

LOCAL GIIAI.V AD PRODUCE.
Trade Satisfactory In Volume, with
Steady- Price the Feature.
Trade moves along smoothly and is Increasing
lu volume as the fall comes on. The dry goods
houses are having a fine run of business. The
market on all staple goods Is very strong and
mills are well sold out. The grocers have had a
cood business so long that a little increase Is
hardly noticed. Nearly all staple groceries carry
a firm tone. Distribution of sugars is still large.
Trade is Improving with leather dealers and
prices are taking on a steady but firmer tone.
The hide market Is dull and prices are weak.
The seed market Is active, both clover seed and
timothy being firm at the recent advances. On
Commission row trade Is not aa active as last
week. The.-e is a large supply of peaches, but
t,ood stock finds ready sale. Receipts of vege
tables are more liberal. Irish and sweet pota
toes are weak at quotations. Eggs, butter anl
pcultry are firm at quotations. Packers yes
terday would pay 14 ce-nts for eggs, local de
mand taking the bulk of the arrivals. Fewer
poor eggs are coming in. Other lines are with
out new features.
The local grain market is disappointing. Re
ceipts are not supplying the local demand, and
all arrivals are readily taken at the following
range of prices, as furnished by the secretary of
the Board of Trade:

SMALL WHEAT RECEIPTS
T1IEV ADD A FRACTION TO THE
PRICU OF THAT CEREAL.
Corn Is Lower on Freer Offerings,
Oats from Inanition Provisions a
Shade to Five Cents Higher.
CHICAGO, Sept. 27. A falling off in receipts
and export fals was responsible for a stubborn
wheat market to-day. October closing ic over
yesterday. Corn closed He lower and oats a
Bhade down. Provisions closed a 6hade to 5c
October wheat opened at 77H377HC and soon
after touched 77!ic, feeling being rather bearish
because of favorable weather in the Northwest.
A report that the French crop estimate Is now
53.000,000 bu less than a mcnth ago stiffened the
views of holders and a reaction began. This
was helped along by a liberal falling off in the
aggregate receipts at the big "Western markets.
These twa factors were the chief influence in an
advance in October to 77?4377;c. The bulge
brought out profit-taking wheat, and the mar
ket declined to 77Uc, where it steadied on re
ports of good export sales, and the close was
firm. October lie higher at 77Vi77Sc New
York reported 32 loads taken for the other side,
while export sales here were 255,000 bu and at
Kansas City 300,000 bu. Seaboard clearances, in
wheat and flour, were equal to 467.000 bu. Pri
mary receipts aggregated 37.C0O bu, compared
with 1.121,000 bu last year. Minneapolis and
Duluth reported 444 care, against 418 last week
and 374 a year ago. Local receipts were 273
cars, thirteen of contract grade.
Business in the corn pit was quite small, not
withstanding the nervousness Indicated by fre
quent variations in price, more especially for
the September delivery. Receipts overran the
estimate, and there was a sudden and liberal
increase in Offerings from Iowa to last night's
bids. The most discouraging feature of the gen
eral trade was the complete stoppage of all ship
ping demand from the East at workable figures.
Bids were reported lc out of the way. Receipts
were 721 cars. October sold between 40c and
40c, and closed He lower at 40c.
Oats were dull and featureless, and the gen
eral situation was unchanged. October sold be
tween 22c and 21Tc, and closed a siiade down at
rivnc. Receipts were 1S7 cars.
Provisions were dull and firm, sustained by a
demand from local shorts and packers. The
opening was easy because of liberal hog re
ceipts. January pork sold between $11.50 and
$11.62. and c!oed 6c higher at $11.60; January
lard between $6.73 and J6.S0. closing a shade
up at f6.77l2i?i6.K0. and January rlba between
$6.12li and $6.20, with the close 2H3c Improved
Estimated receipts to-morrow: Wheat. 310 cars;
corn. 740 cars; oats. 240 cars; hogs, 23,000.

BRYAN'S FAKE ISSUES.
His Candidacy Fills All the Require
ments of the Word Shyster.
To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal:
Four years ago Mr. Bryan appeared be
fore the American people as the nominee
of the Democratic party for President,
planting his candidacy on the Issue of the
free coinage of silver at the forced ratio
of 16 to 1. In his conduct of that cam
paign he subordinated all other questions
and forced the Republican party to meet
the money question squarely. It was a
great and important question upon which
the mass of the people were then little
informed. Those who differed with Mr.
Bryan's notion of finance found no fault
with the sincerity and earnestness with
which he pleaded the cause of silver. The
money standard was a thing about which
men could have honest difference. But
what is the relation of the Candidate Bryan
to the present campaign?
Ills candidacy to-day for the presidency
fills all the legal requirements of the word
'shyster." His pack of Issues, imperial
ism, militarism, free coinage of silver,
anti-trust crusade are each and all special
frauds, hatched and batched for the pur
pose of temporarily humbugging a ma
jority of the American people. Not one of
them can stand the test of honest investi
gation the searchlight of reason. The firm
determination of the admininstratlon not
to haul down the American flag in the
Philippine islands, where fate and the for
tunes of an unsought and humaritarian
war unfurled it, and turn these islands
over to the Jurisdiction of one of their
many semi-civilized native tribes under
the leadership of a crafty and barbarous
dictator, in advance of establishing a
stable civil government therein, furnishes
but little if any support for the base
less charge of imperialism.
The temporary assembling of a volun
teer army of some 60,000 citizen soldiers
for the purpose of restoring order and
aiding In the establishment of civil gov
ernment in newly acquired territory, and
policing the island of Cuba, pending the
reorganization of its government, is quite
Insufficient, or should be. In a nation of
73.000.000 of people as a basis for the cry
The attack on trusts and trade combi
nations by a candidate, whose chief hope
of success rests on a political deal with a
trust breeder and the most gigantic cor
ruptlonist of the age Richard Croker. of
New York city can have but little terror
for organized greed, and promises as its
fruit less of hope for the relief of Its vic
tims. Free coinage of sliver, the last but not
least of the Bryan heresies, marred and
scarred with the defeat of four years ago.
in the face of the country's unparalleled
prosperity, largely due to the establish
ment of the gold standard, can pass for
but little more than an exposed humbug
In his triple candidacy Mr. Bryan him
self furnishes whatever If anything, be
lacking in the issues he presents is re
quired to meet and prove the charge of
'shyster.' J. IL CLAYPOOL.

There were really no new fcatuiea in the cattle
trarket. the supply again being comparatively
liberal and the quality generally below the re
quirements of the trade in quality or flesh. The
trade was characterized by the same lndlUercnt
demand that has prevailed for several day, and
the bidding, if any different, was lower tlan It
bas been. Consequently it was very dlfficilt ta
consummate sales, but finally a large xroprtlon
of the better grades sold at nearly steady prlc?s
compared with yesterday. There was very little
demand for heifers and rractically no outlet for
stockers and feeders. A large number of cattle
remained in the pens unsold. Quotations:
