OKAIMIOI'IIONK, l'Nl'.USIATIO GUN AND
AVASIIINGTON LOAN AMITUUST,
Tito Uiiliinco or tho Ijlst Very Quiet Tlio
Tendency Moivnivnrd With tho Neces
sary Inceptions to IHulco n General Kulo
In view of tlic wn favorable news fiom Now
York, It was hardly to be expected that our local
inmkct would show any great amount of buoy
ancy, niul It Is therefore n subject of congratu
tlon that uotwllhstaudlng tho decline in values
in tho Now York market our own local securities
hold up 60 well and in somo cases, notably tho
"Washington and Georgetown Hallroad and Dis
trict bonds, show nn advance over provlous sales.
In fact, a number of them, although
showing no transactions, are as strongly
bid 'for as at any time this J ear, and
tho lack of sales show s that thoy nrc as strongly
held by present owners. It has been truly said
tnat this is simply a "rich man's panic,' ' and
ono ongineeied entliely by tho speculators in
Wall sti cot, mid for their own benefit. Our
own stocks generally not being of a speculative
chaiacter, holders are not disturbed, and they
do not caro to sell. Tho speculative ones show
the effect of manipulation, and furnish tho
only excitement our local market nffords. And
even these hold up well under 6Uch unfavorable
Graphophone is generally classed as ft specu
lative security, although It is now a dividend
payer, but tho tho continual manipulation has
had tho effect of ci eating a want of confidence
which does not apply to many other stocks, and
it Is therefore not surprising that In times like
these and under pi cssure prices should gooff
on free selling. In fact, it may be mentioned
as a point in its favor that it holds so strong
when it is lccalledthat during tho past two
years, at times when money was abuu daut
and easy, it 1 cached neatly as low fig
ures as those ruling now. Fuithor It
may bo stated that the pressure to sell is not so
very strong on the pai t of the public, tho trans
actions being mostly confined to room-trading
among the brokers, who, being unublo to make
anything out of tho public, aie now engaged In
the praiseworthy task of "scalping" ono
another. The total sales of the week amounted
to but 440 shaics, pai t of which being sold and
resold added to the total. Opening atl3J, It
dropped to 123, eleven sales being made be
tween these prices.
Another speculative stock Is the Pneumatic
Gun Can iage, which, although not yet paying
dividends, Is reported in a condition where its
friends are wai ranted in the belief that It has ft
great future before it, which at tho present
price makes it a good thing to own. Tho sales
during the week lepiesented 1,200 shares, 200 of
which sold at $1, and a block of 1,000 that was
eagerly taken up at 91 cents. The company
have recently bought up 5,000 shares and have
sufllcieut cash in the tieasuiy to provide for the
cairjiug out or present contracts.
Next in point of interest and amount of sales
was the Washington Loan and Tiust stock, 540
shares selling at 42, and 100 at 4 11-10, tho dis
position amomr tho brokers to reali.o on every
thing they hold being noticeable in this stock.
American Security and Trust, which has here
tofore been very strong, also shared in tho gen
eral weakness, and sold slightly lower than
heretofoie, the sales being 20 at 0G and 30 at
052. The first sale of tho bonds on tho Hoard
for a long time is recorded, $5,000 selling at
The balnjice of tho list was veiy quiet. In
bank stocks "graders' leeelved most attention,
iM siwrea-B-wmrag nanus at vmvsj, tuo low
est prices j ct i eached. Ono sale of 5 Columbia
at 10(5, followed tho next day by the same stock
bringing 170, and a bid for moie at that price,
weie tho onli tiansactionsin bank stocks. fho
bids on the balance continued strong, Lincoln
and AVest Eud only excepted.
In railroad stocks Ecklugton dropped to GO
on small sales, 35 going at that figure ' and 5
bringing G2. The only other transaction in
rath onus was one sale of 5 "Washington and
Georgetown, which brought 254, an advance of
$7 over last pievious sale.
Insurance stocks were also dull, 5 Arlington
selling at ISO ex-dividend. 59 Peoples' M 5,
and 50 Columbia File at 10, this latter marking
the lowest piice at which this stock has- 'been
since September, 1888. Tho balanco of this
class holds up well, tho bid on FItemens' and
Metropolitan espechlly showing a good ad
vance. Electilc Light vailes little In Its strength
and brilliancy, 10 shares offered at 150
promptly securing a purchaser,with pi ivato sales
of largo quantities at samo figures.
Tho best evidence that monoy is not so tight
as it is made to appear Is 6hown in the strong
demand for Government and District bonds,
$2,000 of tho former bringing 124 and $ 0,350 of
D. C. a.05'6 In one lot securing 1213, at which
price the rato of interest paid is less than 3 per
Altogether, there is nothing In our own mar
ket to wanant any uneasiness. Tho specula
tive tondeucy of last spring, which carried
everything up beyond n normal valiio. is now
suffering fiom tho natural leaction, and as soon
as thing get down to a solid basis tho upward
turn may he expected.
Notes and CommontH.
hi io! est mm t! VhcJc loi! As foieshad
owed in this column last Sunday, tho foices of
tho "outs" wero maishaled In solid phalanx
andweio matching on with calois fijing and
bands playing to Ilaiper's Forrywlth a deter
mination to btorm tho battlements of tho "Ins"
and lout them, " horse, foot, and diagoons."
In oullnary English, tho fight for control in the
Electilc Light Company was then l caching
fever-heat, and but a few days mora Inter
vened befoic tho decision of the stockholders
would bo made. And to-day tho "outs" may
exclaim, "I linvo fought tho' good fight; the
victory Is mine." For it is undeniable that tho
victory Is u sweeping ono, tho votes standing
about 5,000 to 2,0001n their favor. Tho state
ment to tho stockholders showed tho company
to bo in excelleut condition, and tho letirlug
officers go out with a good record to leave as a
legacy to their successois. Capt. Thomas, tho
now piesiilenl, has been actively connected
with tho management of tho company for tho
post five yeais, aud brings to his now office a
rlpo expeilcnco that will maintain tho high
chaiacter of the company in tho past. Tho
stock holds up well, and it is boldly claimed
that Its advance Is certain to $200.

Ono bundled and forty-two thousand six bun
dled and twonty-threo shares of stock of tho
"Washington Loan and Trust Company out of
tho entire capital of 200,000 shares wero lopre
sentcd at Maitlusbuig on Thuisdayand voted
unanimously in favor of tho proposition to
have tho company avail itself of tho piovlslons
of tho act of Congiess approved October 1, 1890,
and authorized tho directors to carry their
v Ishes into effect as ourly as practicable. Tho
piesldeut read a report giving tho result of tho
transactions of tho compauy since its organiza
tion, aud stating that its busluess had beeu
inoi e successful than was anticipated, mid that
tho outlook for tho future of tho company was
very promisiug; that tho entire capital of tho
company had been subscribed and was largely
distributed among parties who would bo prob
able patrons of the company: that thoie wero
now over seven hundred stockholders.
Through all tho excitement occasioned by tho
talk of tight money it shows tho wise judgment
and piudenco of ourlocal bankers In their man
ner of allaying, as far as possible, tho tendency
of tho public to loso their heads. It may bo
stated In geneial terms that few It any loans
havo been called, and while thcro has been no
disposition to encouraco boi rowers, thcio has
also been no unwillingness to extend necessary
accommodation. Washington is in no wiso
affected by tho doings of either London or Wall
street, except In so far as n few people may deal
on tho New York stock market, and hence there
Is no cause for uneasiness.

TAVO CONFIDENCE MEN ESCAPE.
Itut Thoy Lonvo n HuiMlsomo Emblem tn
tho Hands of tho Secret Service.
A picturesque golden badge, valued nt not
less than $30, was put In tho hands of Acting
Chief Cowie, of tho United States Secret Service,
on Friday afternoon by a reporter, who made n
very clever capture of tho emblem from a couple
of New York crooks who worked Washington
to somo advantage for several days. The badge
is ft handsome affair, in solid gold. Tho upper
poitlon lcpresents a star and crescent, with a
largo star pendant. Tho latter is fully three and
one-half Inches from point to point, and tho
whole is beautifully engraved. It Is Inscrlbod:
: w. VAN STAIIU. :
: Secret Service Officer. :
When tho badge was handed to Acting Chief
"This bears no lesemblanco whatever to the
Secret Service badge." (exposing tho emblem
of tho sci vice, a. small copper affair.) "1 will,
however, retain it," ho added laughingly.
Tho baduc was secured by the reporter from
two shrewd-looking confidence men who had
been working the "shell game" hero for sev
eral days. The only names they wero known
by weie "Geary" and "Bill." Ihey stopped at
No. 313 Pennsylvania avenue northwest and
palmed themselves off on the nropiletor thereof
as the sellers of a patent soap for the removal
of giease spots and stains.
The reporter found tho fakirs and crooks work
ing tho "shell game" in a well-known South
Washington resoit, and after noticing tho game
for some time without participating an incip
ient row started. Immediately tho confederate
exposed the alleged Secret Seivico badge,
which at onco quelled tho disturbance. The
reporter immediately recognized tho badge as a
fraud, perpetrated to shield tho bunco men
from interference, and subsequently obtained
possession. Tho next day ho turned It over to
Acting Chief Cowie gave it as his opinion that
the badge had probably been used in somo
game by cither counterfeiters or bunco steerers,
and after testing the metal of tho badge fully
aud finding it solid irold expressed some sur
prise that any one should go to such expense
for the emblem. The badge was properly
tagged and placed in safe quarteis to wait the
return of Chief Brooks from New York.
A full Investigation will no doubt be set on
foot to-morrow, when Chief Brooks leturns.
Tho two confidence meu who had the badge
made a hasty exit fiotn town when they re
alized that their bogus emblem had fallen into
dangerous hands. An investigation showed
that theie is no such officer in the Secret
Service as W. Van Stahr. The only knowledge
tho boaidlng-house keeper has about the two
men is that they legularly every morning pur
chased two cakes of five-cent laundry soap and
cut It up into little cakes, which they per
fumed, wrapped in tinfoil, and labeled "Magic
Grease and Stain Bemover, ten cents per
TiATE AUMY AND NAVY NEWS.
Suigeou General Browne In his annual leport
to the Secretary of the Navy takes occasion to
comment with regret upon tho fact that vacan
cies which have existed in the Medical Coips of
the Navy since the Civil War are yet unfilled,
and that Congress has failed to adopt tho Dc
paitment's suggestion looking to tho improve
ment of the condition and pay of assistaut sur
geons. Dining the year 2,937 pension cases
wero acted upon by tho bureau, leaving 207 on
hand Juno 30 last. Tho number of persons
examined for the naval service, including up
pientico boys, during the year 1889 was 13,411.
Of this number 4,890, or moio tbuu one-third,
wero l ejected for physical disqualifications.
Tho number of these rejected for color-blindness
was 170, a ratio of 13 In 1,000. The number
of patients admitted to tho sick list and under
treatment during tho year was 12,029. Of this
number 8,002 woio on vessels alloat and receiv
ing ships, 1,595 in hospitals, and 2,332 at navy
yards and shore stations. Tho total number of
deaths in the naval service during tho year was
203. Of this number 111 occurred on vessels
alloat and'receivlng ships, 70 at naval hospitals,
and 22 at nav' yards and Bhoro stations. Tho
ratio was 18 in 1,000 for tho eutiro service.
Tho Pneumatic Gun Cairiago Company, of
this city, on tho 8th Instant entered into a con
tract with tho Secretary of the Navy to Instal
tho pneumatic gun cauiages, loaders, steering,
and refilgerating apparatus, etc., in the Tenor
at tho Brooklyn Navy Yard Instead of nt tho
Chailestown Nnvy Yaid, Boston, Mass., as
provided in the oiiglnal contract. This has
beon dono to expedite tho woik, which has been
delayed by the difilculty In getting tho amior
plates. Tho contiact calls for tho delivery of
all tho pneumatic mnterial within sixty days
and completion of tho wholo work within six
months from November 8. Tho Depart
ment allows tho company for tho expense of
tho change $11,500.
