William II. Vsnderbilt, accompanied by Au

lias his stock raising in charge, his sons, William
K. and Frederick W., his uncle, Capt. Jake
Vamlerbilt, Foster Dewey and 3Ir. Ellis, of the
Schenectady locoiaotivo ivories, left Xcw York
on the Gth inst. for a trip over the railroads in

joined by General Manager Newell, of tho Lake
Shore, and President Keep, of tho Chicago and
Northwestern Railroad. The party will bo
gone two weeks, and will go as far West as
Denver on the Chicago, Burlington and Quiucy
railroad, and possibly to Salt Lake City.
A stock exchange has been organized at the
City of Mexico without a charter by European
brokers under the auspices of tho Mexican Na
tional Bank, and was opened for business yes
terday. The fifth annual convention of the Pennsyl
vania Millers' Association met at Harrisburg
Monday, over one hundred members being in
The building enterprises of the cities of Now
York and Brooklyn during the past three
months foot up in value $11,000,000. Of this
sum New York expends $9,G71,"US for new
structures and about $1,000,000 for alterations.
Adding to theso figures those for the first half
of the year, the aggrcgato expenditures for
architectural improvements in tho two cities
since Jan. 1 is, in round numbers, $1S,000,000.
The hop market has never before, according
,to all dealers, been so excited as it is now.
Prices are unprecedently high. When it was
certain that the hop harvests in England,
Bohemia and, in fact, throughout Europe were
only up to half the ordinary production, Eng
lish brewers and hop dealers at once cabled to
the United States to secure a very large share
of our hop crop, and some weeks ago actually
secured a quantity estimated at one-fourth of
all on hand, even buying the ungathered hops
in the ileitis. The price ran up in four days
from 33 cents a pound to 53 cents.
The following are estimates based upon re
ports received from the several counties as to
the yield of the grain, crops of this year in tho
State of Minnesota : Reports from 45 counties
will, from an aggregate of 1,S05,0G4 acres, claim
a mean average yield of 1-1.09 bushels per acre.
The entire wheat acreage of the State this year
was 2,569,G97, and, at an average of 1-1 bushels
per acre, this gives a total yield of 35,975,G3S
bushels, which is thought to bo an estimate
that will approximate the actual yield as
closely as possible.
According to tho statistics gathered by the
Chicago Bailway Age, an aggregate of S,705 miles
of new railway have been laid in nine mouths.
This total, which relates only to main lines,
embraces 6eventy-nino lines in thirty-four
States and Territories. During September the
largest number of miles in any one State were
laid in Iowa, where on six lines 151 miles were
put down; Georgia is Eccoud, with ninety -four
miles on three lines, and Pennsylvania third
on the list, with, ninety-one miles on eleven
lines. The others range from three in Maine
and. Now Jersey respectively, four in Ken
tucky, and five in Mississippi, to seventy-seven
in New York. The year l5Sl-was character
ized by tho large cnterpriso in this industry,
but an examination of tho statistics proves that
during the first nine mouths of that year only
5,000 miles had been reported ; the record for
18S2 is almost double.
THE STOCK MARKET.
Review of the Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
New York, Oct. 11. We think it has been
demonstrated by the course of tho market for
some time back that the public alone cannot
make a bull market, although it is certain that
their inclination is always more or less in this
direction. It is also certain that the large ope
rators for the last few days have been holding
aloof from the market, and the advance that
has taken placehasbeen entirely due to manip
ulation of operators, who have been encouraged
to buy some stocks by the facat tht they have
suffered more or less decline and by the con
stant reports of the press of large earnings.
That the public as a bull element is a weak
one has also been sufficiently demonstrated by
the fact that the market reacts the instant
there is a cessation of purchases.
To-day's business was simply explanatory of
this state of affairs, aud the market was weak,
and orders to sell were hard to execute, and
this in face of comparative ease in money.
There was nothing to influence tho market
either way, and the changes that took place
were entirely owing to small operations.
Money ruled at G (a, 7 per cent.

A RARE OFFER !
nitherto a low-priced watcli has been the very poorest
of investments; being of no value as a time-keeper, and
a constant source of expense and annovance to its owner.
The WATER RIJRY WATCH will be found a
marvel of simplicity, accuracy, and cheapness.
SIMPLE, because it is composed of less than one-half
the usual number of parts lu a watch, which are so
arranged as to be easily cleaned or repaired.
ACCURATE, because it will run twenty-four hours,
and keep time equal to the better grades of watches.
CHEAP, bceaii'-e it will wear for years, and la offered
at a price within the tench of everybody.
