Trade on Wall Street Was Apathetic
In It nature Money Market Out
look Day in Local Trade.
'At New Tork yesterday money on call
"was firm at 1453 per cent.; last loan, 2Va
Prime mercanUlo paper, 536 per cent.
Sterling exchange was weak, after firm
ness, with actual business in bankers bills
at $i.S3Ts for demand and $i.73"s for' sixty

Silver certificates were 63S6?c; bar sil
ver, 63c; Mexican dollars, 50ic At Lon
don silver bars sold at 23 9-lCd an ounce.
The stock market fell into a condition
approaching stagnation during the latter
hours ci the trading. The undertone was
heavy, th dribbling of Sellins orders find
ing no support whatever. The trading be
tween boardroom members made up the
whole market, and owing to the relative
dullness of the general market the move
ment In People's Ga.3 was made conspicu
ous. The pressure against the stock was
ccr ,nued early in the day, but the bears,
wno have sold the stock continuously for
tome time past, became disquieted later in
the day over the extent of their commit
ments and a vague suspicion that the gas
war In Chicago was not as unrelenting as
made to appear on the surface. The pub
lished report that the Ogden Company was
buying Its additional equipment from
sources dominated by Interests friendly to
the People's Oaa Company was the cause.
From 81H. as the low point, the stock
forged steadily upwards to S5?4. with symp
toms of Increasing urgency in the buying
demand from the short Interest. The close
was at the highest, with a net gain of 2a.
Nothing could more strikingly demonstrate
the inertness of the general market than Its
utter failure to respond to this rather sen
sational movement. The dullness at the
close was unrelieved and the day's net
changes were mixed and entirely Insignifi
cant. The money market showed a rather
reactionary tendency, ZVx per cent, repre
senting the maximum rate, compared with
4 per cent. Wednesday. Late in the day
the rate went down to 14 per cent., but as
this came after the principal demand had
been satisfied, It was not considered as
a fair index of the ruling rate. Deposits
at the aubtreasury, for transfer to the In
terior, fell below a quarter of a million
dollars, the movement to New Orleans
and St. Louis being merely nominal. For
eign exchanges also steadied some, but fell
away again In the afternoon with the news
that the price of gold in London had been
advanced another half penny an ounce for
both gold bars and American eagles. The
rise in gold neutralized the action of the
governors of tho Bank of England In re
taining the discount rate at 4 per cent.
The weekly return of the bank also shows
that the failure to advance the rate prob
ably Is a temporary policy, having con
sideration for the need of the home mar
ket rather than indicating a belief that
the demand for gold from New York does
not need further resistance. The convic
tion remains general In Wall street that
considerable gold will come from London
later in the fall, that is. supposing the
extraordinary movement of cotton and the
resulting demand for surrency from the
Interior continues. The day's lull In the
currency movement Is considered only tem
porary, and the day's quiet market for cot
ton, after Wednesday's wide fall In price.
Is regarded as only a coincidence, but
these incidents are suggestive of the domi
nance of the cotton movement over the
whole money and financial situation at
present. Any considerable reaction in the
price of cotton or any marked falling off
In the foreign demand, even at present
prices, would promptly alter the whole
outlook in the international money mar
kets. Business In bonds was very small, and
price changes irregular. Total sales, at
par value, were $16.000. United States

A SUGGESTION FOR Mit, BRIAN.
Why Does He Make No 3Ientlon of the
niKfceat of All Trust t
It Is inconceivably strange that Mr. Bry
an and his orators, If they are really sin
cere in their denunciation of Imperialism
and the trusts, FhouM spend their time
and waste their eloquence upon the Imag
inary despot McKinley, when in the very
center of their camp Is enshrined In auto
cratic power the most Imperial figure of
modern political life, Mr. Richard Croker;
should grow breathless with their fulmlna
tions against the trust, when the most
vitally Important factor of their party
organization is the trust which traffics,
not in oil, in sugar, in iron, in bread, butter,
or strong drink, but In the bodies and
souls and consciences of human beings.
There may be certain hard conditions
brought upon the public by the magnates
who, by reason of large aggregations of
capital, are able to control the markets of
the world; and It is quite possible that
restrictions of one kind or another upon
these may some day appear to be advisable;
but in the working of sheer iniquity, in the
promotion of corruption. In the oppression
and moral degradation of men -who, left to
themselves, might 1? uplifted to a higher
plane than that which they now occupy,
the Tammany Voting Trust of New York,
upon which Mr. Bryan is relying for the
votes with which alone he may hope to
carry the Empire State, bears away the
palm from all others.

Exciting Day In Flax Other

CHICAGO, Oct. 1L The strength which
wheat exhibited early to-day, influenced
considerably by the reopening of mills at
Minneapolis, was lost later, December clos
ing 8c under yesterday. Corn closed Hft
Vc higher, and oats ic lower. Provisions
closed but little changed.
While there was market news of various
kinds served up to the consideration of
speculators in wheat, the market, more
than to anything, else owed Its Irregular
ityand It was irregular-to the Instability
of sentiment among small traders. De
cember opened UÖc, higher, at TS'zC to
7i;c. Taris was firm, Liverpool steady;
three mills at Minneapolis were reported
about to reopen, and receipts at Duluth
were light. Sentiment changed, however,
and December sold quickly down to 760.
It recovered to 76TbC Just as quickly and in
this was assisted by the strength of out
Bide markets and buying by the Northwest,
Near the end the usual hoo-doo, outside in
difference, made itself felt and December
declined to 7Zp and closed c down at 76
7(jUc New York reported twenty-seven
loads taken for export. Primary receipts
were 1,036,000 bu, against 873,000 last year.
A year ago Minneapolis was not included
In the aggregated receipts. Minneapolis
and Duluth reported five hundred cara
against S8Ö last week and 354 a year ago.
Seaboard clearances, In wheat and flour,
were equal to fcOä.OOQ bu.
Corn was firm and fairly active. Tho
bullish crop report estimating a crop of
1,916.000,000 bu was the chief influence.
Local shipments were ÖS2.U00 bu, making
1,800.000 bu for two days. Shorts were the
best buyers. The cash trade was slow.
December sold between 34itj35 and closed
VUc higher at 34Tc Receipts were 501
Oats were quiet and the tone easy on the
government report estimating a yield of
fclC.OOO.OoO bu. the largest crop since 1893.
Receipts were 3i6 cars. December sold be
tween 22 22c and closed Uc down at ZZV&c.
Provisions started firm on the hog receipts,
which were 8,000 under the estimate. A
bulge followed the opening, on liberal buy
ing by those who had sold earlier in
the week, but later the market turned
easier in sympathy with wheat. The close
was steady, January pork 2Hc lower at
$11.59. January lard unchanged at $3.80 and
January ribs unchanged at $6.15.
Flax had an exciting day, influenced by
the small stocks and the Duluth advance.
October opened at 11.75, sold at $1.74, ad
vanced to $1.73 broke to $1.70 and rallied to
$1.72 at the close.

sidering the demand the receipts of hogs
were again liberal, and in keeping with
early reports from other places it was evi
dent from the start that prices would be
further reduced. The demand was very
backward from all sources, and it was ap
parent early that shippers had few orders.
Finally, however, on a basis of 74310c low
er than yesterday, local , packers were
rather liberal buyers and a good clearance
was .made, although it looked like a few

Oct. U. On account of the dull markets
heretofore this week only a small number
of horses were received for the joint auc

the Indiana Horse and Mule Company, and

They Are Large Decanse the Giver Is
New Orleans Times Democrat.
"There are two scales of 'tips' recog
nired in Paris, and, for that matter, all
over the continent." said a gentleman who
has Just returned from the exposition.
"The first Is the American tip and the sec
ond is the tip from other people. The
gratuity . expected and demanded from
Americans is anywhere from two to ten
times as large as that given by anyone
else, and for this we have to thank no
body but ourselves. The true inwardness
of the situation Is rather amusing. There
Is a prevalent idea that it was brought
about by the silly prodigality of cads who
wanted to 'show off, and millionaires, to
whom money was no object, but tho im
pression Is a mistake. It is true that our
countrymen have whetted the rapacity of
foreign servants by giving fancy tips, but
It waB not done In a spirit of vain-glory;
The fact Is. that the average American
becomes intimidated by the solemn gran
deur of continental flunkies, and does not
dare to offer the pittance fixed by local
custom. To Illustrate my point I'll cite
you an Instance: A few weeks ago I dined
at a boulevard restaurant with a Chicago
friend and his wife. We were waited on
by a portly, middle-aged Individual with
glowing side whiskers and the air of an
ambassador in comic opera. My friend
gave him a twenty-franc piece. 'Good
heavens!' said I. "what made you do that?
Two francs would have been ample. 'I
would never have dared, whispered the
Chicagoan. 'He looks exactly Ilka the
president of the bank at the stockyards!'
That is a typical case in point. An untrav
eled American can't get over the feeling
of awe that Is inspired by the fine flourish
of European servants, and can't accustom
himself to the fact that sedate, prosperous
looking and generally elderly people who
minister in one way or another to his com
fort -are used to receiving the equivalent
of nickels with profound gratitude. Hence
he bestows an apologetic tip of many times
the correct dimensions, thereby spoiling
the servitor and setting the pace for un
fortunate compatriots who pass that way
In future. In England It is the same. I
saw a flunky who looked like the lord
mayor himself Indignantly return a couple
of shillings offered him at the Tower by
a frugal gentleman from Philadelphia,
The American promptly groveled and
doubled the fee. Five minutes later the
same flunky received fourpenee from a
beefy Englishman, and bowed like a man
darin over the gifL American travelers
are too easily bluffed."
A MAN OF LETTERS.
How a Cltlxen Found that Not All
Sneh Were Literary.
"Down at one of the river resorts near
the bay." said the man with the sun
peeled nose, "I met a neighbor of mine on
the hotel veranda. He was In conversation
with an elderly, dignified-looking man,
whose face was somehow familiar to me
" 'Shake hands w ith Mr. So-and-So. a
Washington man of letters,' said my friend
to me, nodding toward his companion, and
I shook with the man whose countenance
was somewhat familiar to me.
"'Man of letters, ehr I thought as I
looked him over. 'Well, here's where I've
got to get on my rnett'.e I suppose, snd
talk about Carthaginian history and Co
rean ceramics and the pasting of the feudal
period, and stunts like that. Just to show
this man of letters what a dickens of a
bright cuss I am myself when I get my
sleeves rolled up. It's about 19 to 1 that
he'll collar me and make me look like a
Patagonlan plaster If I make the littlest
kind of a break.'
"So I began to put 'em over for the bene
fit of this man of letters. He smiled in
dulgently at me as I went along, but he
didn't heave In many remarks himself to
peak of, except 'I guess that's so,' or
Yes, you're right there. I think." or 'It's a
matter that I haven't investigated as care
fully as I should. It looked pretty easy
then and I went right along and let him
have all I knew without any further fear
of a call-down. My neighbor seemed to bo
greatly entertained over the wealth of in
formation I was unfolding, and I was medi
tating upon what a sin and a shame it was
that I hadn't been picked out as the head
of a college several years ago.
"I was back in Washington two days
later. I didn't go to the office on the morn
ing after I got back, but sat dawdling at
my breakfast. As I sat at the table in
our basement dining room there was a ring
at our basement bell and I went to the
door. There stood my roan of letters In
a gray uniform. He wore a broad grin as
he handed me my morning mail, and then
1 remembered how It was that this man of
letters' face was so familiar to me.
"Come on. the bunch of you,", concluded
ths man with the sun-peeled nose, "I'm do
ing the buying."
Roys as "Washerwomen.
Boys in London are being trained as
washerwomen. An officer of tho church
army first conceived the rlan. The church
nriny has 102 homes, where it keeps for a
time the men, women and children It res
cues from crime and misery. In most of
the houses set apart for boys the youths
were formerly put to work cutting kindling
wood or other work of the sort, but the
supply of boys presently exceeded the de
mand for the work they were doing, and
It was then that the officer devised the
scheme of the laundry.
"Most of the boys when first Introduced
to the tubs, the wringer and Ironing
board grumbled a lot about being mads
old women of.' but the idea appealed to
them more on the whole than chopping
wood. They regarded it as a huge Joke
at first, but before they knew it they be
gan to take real interest In the work, and
were fairly expert when the church army
found them situations elsewhere. The. boys
do not do fine work, but they can do up
their own linen very well. In fact, two
boys became 60 expert that they became
assistant superintendents, and have been
intrusted with fine clothes."
