Gen. A. C. Dodge, speaking to a Dcs Moines
reporter the other day about the wonderful
growth of the Northwest, said that when he

ing settlement, where tho two cities of St. Paul

In consequence of tho opening of trade in

The ruling price Saturday was G10 cents for

At the directors' meeting of tho Baltimore

President Garrett presented a statement of the

to tho surplus fund, which is not represented

It was expected that the next monthly meet
ing would be held in the new structure known
as tho Central Building, at the comer of Balti
more and Calvert streets, which is doubtless
the most central and desirable location that
could have been selected in tho city. The con
venience to tho community will be most
marked, and, under the new arrangements,
greater effectiveness, through the concentra
tion of tho different offices of tho several de
partments at the Central Building and at Cam
den Station, will be accomplished.
At a meeting of the agents of tho different
railroad lines in New York, the committee to
prepare forms for continuous train passage
tickets reported that they could not reach any
conclusion. They were discharged. Another
committee of the general passenger agents of
the four trujik lines, and the Boston and
Albany lines has been appointed. The meet
ing decided to give the differential fare already
established between intermediate points a
further trial. The meeting adjourned until
November 22, when differential fares and tho
award of percentages for division of earnings
under tho pooling contract will be specially
The strike on tho Northern Pacific Eailroad
in Oregon has assumed a serious phase. After
the board Kite had been fixed at the old price
the men demanded $2.50 a day, instead of $2
as heretofore. This was refused by Mr. Hallct,
the superintendent of construction. All tho
Chinamen were then driven from work. En
gineer Thiclsen, with the paymaster, has gone
to the front from Portland with a larrye sum
of money and an escort of twenty-five soldiers.
The net earnings of the Chesapeake a nd Ohio
Kail way Company are retorted to be sufficient
to pay the interest on tbe entire bonded debt
of the company, including the currency sixes.
An officer of the company says that tbe
monthly net earnings hereafter will not fall
below $100,000, and that within eighteen
months he expects they will exceed. $200,000.
The Old Dominion Steamship Company will
hereafter run five steamers to Newj tort News,
the eastern terminus of the road.
The Chicago and Hannibal Kail road Company
has been incorporated at Springfield, 111. The
capital htock is $2,000,000, which Moses J. Rich
ards, one of the leading incorporators, says has
been all taken. The incorporator expect to

making a total reduction of 50 per cent, since
the 1st of July.

The Department of Agriclturo reports that
the average yield of oats will bo somewhat
higher than last year or in 1879, and tho pro
duct will bo nearlj'- as large as that of wheat,
probably about 450,000,000 bushels. Illinois,
Iowa, New York, Wisconsin, Missouri, Penn
sylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Kansas are States
of highest rank in production. Tho averago
yield of rye, as averaged from State returns, is
14 7-10 bushels, making a crop of 20,000,000
bushels, or nearly tho same as reported by the
census. The indicated averago yield of barley
is about twenty-three bushels per acre, aggre
gating 450,000,000 bushels. California, New
York, and Wisconsin together produce more
than half, or 27,000,000 bushels. The product
in 1S79 was 4 1,000,000 bushels. The prospect
for buckwheat is good for a nearly average
product, 11,000,000 to 12,000,000 bushels. Penn
sylvania produces nearly half of the crop and
reports 95 as the average of condition, 100 rep
resenting a full normal yield. New York
makes an averago of 73. No other State pro
duces 500,000 bushels. Tho general average of
condition of potatoes is SI. In the South, in
the Ohio valley, and in Michigan, Missouri,
and Nebraska, the average is 100 to 100. In
the Northwest and in the Eastern and Middle
States the condition is lowest. It is 70 in New
York, So in Maine, and 8 1 in Yermont. The
returns indicate a probable yield of 0 bush
els per aero on an area of nearly two million
An annual review of the rice culture in Lou
isiana says: The crop of 1SSI-S2, 240,197 bar
rels, was tho largest ever marketed in this
State, and sold at very remunerative prices.
Tho crop of 1S32-S3 was expected to bo fully
300,000 barrels, but. on account of rains during
harvest and blight, tho amount of good grocery
grades will probably bo less than last year.
Prices are lower than at equal date any year
since tho rice culture was established in Louis
iana. Farms of the United States arc worth over
$10,000,000,009; fences over $7S,000.000; live
stock over $300,000,000 ; farm implements and
THE STOCK MARKET.
Kericrr or the Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
Ni:w Yokk, Oct. IS. Tho market has been
as uncertain to-day as tho most confirmed
trader could desire. During the opening thcro
was some disappointment felt that prices did
not advance in a more rapid manner. But the
changes that have taken place have been to
wards a better range. It is impossible to judge
whether the big men have been in the market
to-day as buyers. But from what we hear wo
should discredit the belief, and wo think that
the spurts to-day have been due to local causes
and the covering of shorts. The bulk of the
business was done by tho room-traders, who
bought and sold in a lively manner, as tliej
saw signs of buying and selling by some of tho
largo operators. Outsido business was quite
dull and most of the commission houses ac
knowledge their inability to give anything
like a reasonable opinion on tho market during
the day. Money easy at 5 per cent.

A RARE OFFER !
Hitherto a low-priced watch has been the very poorest
of investments; being of no value as a time-keeper, and
a constant source of epi use mil annoyance to its owner.
The AVATERIM'EY WATCH will be found a
marvel of simplicity, accuracy, and cheapness.
SI31 PLE, because it is composed of less than one-half
the usual number of parts in .1 watch, which are so
arranged as to lie easily cleaned or repaired.
ACCURATE, becau'e it will run twenty-four hours,
and keep tiineeiiual to tho better grades of watches.
CHEAP, because it will wear for years, and la offered
at a price within the reacli of everybody.
