LOVE AND WHISKY.
A Young Milwaukrean Who Couldn't
Make the Two Agree, and Changed Oft"
on Muriatic Acid.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Milwaukee, Oct. 31.—Last evening Al
fred E. Detwiller, aged 24 years, attempt
ed suicide by drinking muriatic acid. For
two or three years young Detwiller has
paid attentions to a Third ward young
lady named Laura King. Although a
strong attachment existed between the
couple, the lady refused to marry him on
account of his dissipated habits. She,
however, repeatedly gave him assurances
of marriage whenever he would reform.
•About a year ago he showed
signs of 'reformation, going to
Minneapolis, where he worked at his trade,
that of a plumber. Several ! months ago
he returned to the city, but soon re
turning to his old habits,. Miss King,
broke off their engagement. Since that
time Detwiller has drank heavily. He vis
ited his father's house yesterday afternoon,
returning to his boarding house at 5
o'clock with a quart bottle half filled with
muriatic acid. Running up stairs he en
tered his room, finding his room mate, a
Mr. Parks, sitting on the bed. Detwiller
requested Parks to read aloud the
article about the Hennecke case.
This Parks proceeded to do, during which
Detwiller fell to the floor with a groan.
Physicians worked all night over him.
To-day they think he will recover, but his
throat and stomach are frightfully burned
and a stricture of the oesophagus is feared.
The unfortunate affair created a great sen
sation throughout the Third ward, where
the young man and Miss King have resid
ed since infancy. When unconscious he
would repeatedly moan "Oh, Laura, Lau
ra!" When he revived he was asked if he
had taken the acid, and he said yes and he
wished he had taken more.
Young men join the evening classes at the St.
Paid Business College.

THE VISIBLE SUPPLY OF CORN.
The Market Still in a Condition of
Great Uncertainty.V? ■*?-}]
".Special Telegram to the Globe. ]
; Chicago,^Oct. 31.Although" more - busi
i ness was done than on the preceding . day,
| settlement day was an uneventful one. The
i October option was dropped without a
| perceptible sign. There were no corners
■ to make excitement, and consequently lit-
tie drop in any market. Wheat was fairly
active but weaker,prices declining l@l^c
and closing % gle lower than on yester
day. On call, however, all markets showed
some improvement, wheat .regaining }£ @
%c of its loss. Not being in fair demand,
neither winter nor spring showed much
sign of life. During the last week of this
j month receipts of all grades of wheat, win
ter and spring combined, amounted to
774,500 bushels against. 604,000 bushels the
previous week, and • 266,528 bushels the
same week last year. The shipments
amounted to 415,185 bushels against 405,
821 la3t week, and 213,981 the same time
The speculative demand has been only
fair. Trading has been chiefly ' on local
account, outside .orders . .being
neither numerous nor for large
quantities. ' With the lack of speculative
interest in the market, operators rather
preferred to sell than buy, and under free
offerings a weak feeling . prevailed, and a
lower range of prices was established. The
last statement of the visible supply at the
principal points of accumlation showed
some increase, and the tenor of market ad
vices from other points rather favored sell
ing. Foreign markets have shown but lit
tle life, and dullness has been the prevail
ing tenor of the reports received from
abroad. The weather has been fine for the
movement of grain from the interior. The
close of navigation is close . at : hand, and :
this may have some effect on the course of '
values. The word "new" will be dropped
in the inspection of wheat to-morrow. .
The flour market is quiet, and shows lit
tle change. During. the week just closed
the receipts were 1:54,166 barrel.*- against
129,000 the previous week, and 116,725 the
same week last year. The shipments for
the week just passed were 96,445 barrels,
against 111.334 the hist week, and 98,227
the same time last year. A very fair busi
ness has been transacted in this mar
ket during the past week, and a
steady feeling prevailed. Exporters were
favored with a fair number of orders, and
purchased moderately,- though income in
stances orders were limited in price below
the views of holders, which prevented buy
ers from purchasing. The export demand
has been chiefly for choice spring and win
ter wheat flours, though occasionally a
medium grade . was . inquired for. Low
grades, although ' meeting with some sale,
have generally ruled rather .slow.
Stocks are fair and . buyers
have a pretty ! good . assortment
from which to make their selections. ., The
local demand has been only moderate.
Jobbers bought pretty freely the past few
weeks, and are carrying pretty fair stocks,
and the demand from this source has been
less urgent. The receipts have been a lit
tle larger the past week, and exceeded the
shipments by about 37,000 barrels.
Freights to the seaboard were unchanged.
Rye flour '• quiet and steady. Buckwheat
flour ruled weak under larger offerings.
In the corn pit to-day trading was more
active on speculation account, and the
feeling developed was somewhat unsettled,
with prices ruling lower all round. The
receipts were again large, the weather fine
for the movement of corn from the interi
or, and there was more pressure to realize.
Prices declined 'Js@,l}4c for the various
futures, fluctuated, and finally closed about
l)|c lower for cash and October, lc lower
for November, l^c lower for year, and
about %e lower for next year's deliv
eries than the closing figures
on-v,; "change yesterday. On
call under the influence ot a brisk demand
a million and a half bushels changed
hands at prices %c better. The receipts
of corn daring the last week - in October
amounted to 1,018,504 bushels against
380,429 bushels for the' week previous and
1,451,255 for the corresponding week last
year. : The shipments amounted ■ to 635,
439 bushels against 745,338 for the week
previous and 2,268,104 for the correspond
ing week last year. There was > considera
bly activity noticeable in the corn market
during the week, but the ; feeling. was un
settled and nervous, and prices '■ were sub
ject to frequent and quite wide fluctuations.
The receipts were largely increased, which
attracted considerable attention, and tend
ed to increase the offerings. for delivery
within the next sixty days, thereby caus
ing a material' reduction in prices on the
whole range. . : The offerings of the more
deferred deliveries were rather free, but
the demand was argent and < prices - were
advanced slightly. The shipping demand
was r • * not quite \'< so - ■ active, ; - and
receivers were '. compelled > :--. to
meet t , the views .of;. buyers
in most cases. The upward * tendency on
freights also tended to reduce prices. The
shipments were' fair, but - not as large ; as
during the _ week ] previous. Considerable
corn was reported sold for November de
livery, on behalf of parties ;. in Tenneessee,
Kentucky and southern Indiana^ and: it is
understood that reasonable rates of freight
have been obtained, so ' that it can be
placed on our market at. a profit. ** The
advices from the west regarding the
crops indicate that. the t yield
wiU not be an . average ; one.
: -Foreign advices were a little more en
couraging to holders, and the eastern mar
kets were inclined to sympathize with the
course of the market here,' notwithstand
ing the small stocks on hand. The visible
supply of corn on hand in this country and
Canada is reported at 3,837,000 bushels
against 27,970,000 reported one year ago.
The quantity of corn afloat 1 for the united
kingdom is reported at 15,000 -'quarters
against 200,000 quarters * one year ago.
The amount of corn * afloat for
Continental Europe is reported at 25,000
quarters against 85,000 -quarters at this
time last year. ■'"'- -■..* *•■■;*
Oats were a shade lower to-day under
the effect of liberal receipts. **.' Very little is
doing. The receipts for the week amount
ed to 714,382 bushels against 454,305
bushels for the corresponding week last
year. The ' shipments were 413,654 bush
els . against 439,814 for the previous one
and 306,075 for. the correspond
ing ; week last year. The
market was quite changeable
still fluctuations were small, covering
only %@l%e range, and the greatest
fluctuations were in cash. The , arrivals
were very largely increased. At first No.
2 was only moderately offered and cash,
in consequenoe, advanced J^'@lc from
opening prices, but the other. grades were
in so much larger supply on the sample
market to there cause a decline, while
cash No. 2 improved from 34 }g to '35"^c.
They were subsequently so much more
freely offered as to cause a decline to j
34J^c. The demand was mainly for
oats suitably located for loading to vessel,
and some outsideg houses were dull . all
through the week. In the market for
futures there was about a fair volume of i
business done. Prices were generally |
weak early, owing to the decline in corn.
Rye and barley continue exceedingly dull
The offerings of hog products were fair,
and the demand moderately active. The j
receipts of hogs were quite liberal, and I
i prices ruled lower, and buyers hoisted on ;
lower prices for product, and . -.ere I
compelled to meet their view**. .Shipping j
demand rather light. Fort' vices j
were unchanged and easte V markets j
steady. The receipts of produc. »•« . light, i
and shipments of all kinds i-i-. The j
offerings of pork were fair, and the \'.k mand :
moderate. Prices declined 2" l'.*.-c and j
closed steady. Lard was fairly : ". e and j
freely offered, prices receding 15 \ *•.,)<••,' and I
closing quiet. On call a little b*L"ar. feel- !
ing ** prevailed, prices . holdin/ *; steady, j
The settlement price for over- j< us lard
delivered on November contracts ii-is been
fixed at $11.25
At present the corn market is .lie only
one to show any particular life, and its vi
tality is of the gfuS—.ic kind. ; Prophecies
for the future of this cereal widely diverge.
Everybody is afraid of it. The bulls ap^
pear to be sanguine of a rise, rind the
bears are sure of cheap corn. One broker
to-day declared that, although a bull, he
could not see why corn should bo k-.-pt up
at the present prices. He knew that the
visible supply was not up to the " usual
standard, and was daily decreasing, but it
was simply because it was being stored in
places where not reported in the regular
visible supply report. There was no de
mand for corn, and the supply in the ele
vators here was below that reported last
year at this time, but was entirely too
much for any home consumption, while
there was no shipping profit to speak
of at present prices. ' He ' thought,
however, that the enormous receipts at
' this point of corn in the last few days
would be checked, because at present there
was a premium of nearly 2c on cash , corn
' sold here and delivered for this month,
because to-morrow when November begins
' this would be done away with and receipts
would of a certainty drop off. A singular
', thing in the market feeling about the alley
is the way brokers are offering to bet on
much lower prices for year wheat. One
man is said to have bet $1,000. that wheat
would sell for 80c a bushel before
the last day of December. He is betting
all the same that year corn will touch 75c
' a bushel before the last day of December.
It would be something that has not ocurred
t for fifteen years on this board. In July,
; 1875, the» highest price paid for corn was
76j^c,for cash, and wheat was 8S}^e. " The
, only way that the price of ; the two cereals
can com*within 5c of each other any time
during the present year is by a corner in
corn, but this would naturally result
in a sympathic - movement .in wheat,
1 and it would advance in proportion. . .- ;
At St. Louis everybody is bearing corn.
Perhaps this is thejoccasion for the stories
which came from there to-day. A letter re
ceived stated that parties in Nashville and
others in Chattanooga have agents in the
country engaging corn for shipment.
These parties get a rate of 16c a bushel
to New York and 10c to Chicago, and will
send most of their (corn to New York.
Nothing but . a protracted spell of wet
weather, will prevent deliveries of corn
in November. ' The high price and large
crops in particular sections will stimulate
holders of corn to hurry it to market. -■■^
A dispatch claims that Capt. Nanson, a
well known broker there, has* just returned
from a trip from Arkansas, and following
him as a result of his trip was a train- load
of new corn from that *'. state. In Scott
county Capt. Nanson found any amount of
corn for sale, the quality and condition of
which were perfect. Fifteen cars of this
lot came in the morning and -the balance
will follow later in the day. '■ Of y. that
so .far; 'received it has all
readily graded No. 2 mixed. Captain
Nanson says there is any amount of new
; corn in that section, but most of it will be
shipped South. It is confidently predicted
at the Missouri metropolis that in another
week t« the u movement ■} of corn from that
state and Kansas will begin, and there will
be a big tumble in prices by Nov.* 15. The
St! Louis folks have been short on corn for
a month, : and . awfully, bearish, so far to
their regret. '- .',-;_;." ■■■;/''' ..' i V,*v> Jv.^'x

they, were powerless to act, as the board of

principals, in a case in arbitration, and as
the firm of Seymour, Hunt & Co., brokers,
for Baker refused to sign down the margins,
although they could not, the president of .
the board suspended the brokers," arid they /
got out s an injunction against the expul
sion or suspension. -As soon as possible
Baker enjoined? the board from signing
down" the margins as Seymour, Hunt _ Go

New Yoke, Oct. 31.— week in -Wall
street opens very much as other weeks for
i some time past, with a market unsettled, -
variable, dull, unimportant. Some stocks
have been weak, i none decidedly strong.
none decidedly active. The fluctuations -
have been to-day unimportant, in most •
cases reactional, and the average result has
been a shade in favor of the bear?. '-. There
j are plenty of bears in Wall street to-day
I A majority of the active speculators aside*-T
from two or three leaders of the market .
: are bearish, and the rank and file of room -
traders is decidedly bearish. . The result is
i a steadily increasing short interest, which
I is already so large that several stocks
i stand 1@ 2 percent, below the current rates
. for call loans of money. The general i_t- "
j pression is that there will be no important
I change in the market until ,the elections ■'.
i next week, although the changes in . the ,'.
j market are so dependent on personal, in
i fluences, that without knowing what is go
j ing on in the minds of the few men of
: large influence it is impossible to more
1 than guess as to the course of the market .
for a . few points. , The considerations
I about which judgment can be intelligently
; exercised are in favor- of higher, rather
j than lower prices; and it is moreover
i known that the leading capitalists con -
; cerned in the market have ten reasons for
' being bulls where they have one for being
J bears. Mr. Gould's return- from
I the West is anxiously • awaited, * for
j his position in the market is considered to
j be a very important and desirable fact to
know. Where one person is certain Mr.
; Gould is selling, five are positive he
; is bulling, and there are many who are
i convinced he is letting the market alone.
I It is said that neither Gould nor Keene ara
: ready for a bull campaign in stocks as yet,
1 and that the tactics which were . successful
, last week will continue to be resorted to
! until after election, to keep the market at
. j a point which will prevent of further pur
. j chases not far from present prices. Con
j siderabie interest attaches to Wabash.
, i The published statement that the' com
, I pany has paid off its floating . debt, except
i I an amount not greater than is usually car
; ! ried by railroad corporations, brings all ;
| sorts of bearish rumors and assertions. It .
; is alleged, however, that the stock is so
i over sold that the bears could very easily
, I be compelled to put the price above 70.
