Halifax, N. S., March 10, 0:15 p. m.—
The water is breaking over wme of th«
wharves aud is on a level with others. In
half an hour it will probably reach lower
Water street. The wind is blowing with
terrible violence and rain is still falling.
Great excitement prevails and fearg for
property on the water lint increase. Re
ports from ths eastern province state that
the storm is commencing in that region.
The storm drum is on the citadel staff.
A SHOBT HOESE.
Halifax, March 10. —During the morn
ing the sky was overcast, with a light south
west wind and mild temperature. Shortly
after noon, the breeze shifted to the south
east quarter, and gradualy grew in force.
A few minutes after 1, the storm signal
was up at the citadel station, and people
began to prepare for the storm. Steamers
and sailing vessels in the docks were se
cured to the wharves, with extra hawsers,
and merchandise in places of insecurity
was removed to higher and
safer quarters. No remarkable change
occurred the following two hours
but about 4 o'clock the wind quickened
a light rain and hail commenced to fall,
and the clouds overhead grew ominously
dark. Half an hour later the wind in
creased doubly in strength, and the rain,
and hail were falling quits heavily. The
following two hours this state of affairs
continued, the breeze increasing to a gale
and howling overhead. Fear began to be
come greater among the wharf owners
and proprietors of property on
the water line, and groat excitement
prevailed. At 7 o'clock the ferry steam
ers to Dartmouth closed their trips, the
last one occupying tour timoa the usual
time, and being made with difficulty. From
that hour until '.) o'clock the gale blew with
terrible fury, causing vessels in the docks
to strain their fastenings and almost tear
from them and drive into the harbor. Th»
only one, however, reported to have broken
her moorings is the schooner Four Broth
ers lying at Market wharf, smashing her
bow-sprit and tearing some planking
from *tho wharf. The vessel was again
secured. The tide rose during the blow
the highest known here since the Saxby
gale. At 8 o'clock it was nearly on a level
with the wharves, and at 9, when the high
est, the sea washed over. Many barrels of
flour, meal and other merchandise in ex
posed places were swept about, but no
serious damage resulted. The steamers in
port held well to their fastenings without
injury. Considerable fear is fell for the
safety of the steamer Newfoundland, which
s ailed from St. Johns, N. F., for this port
Tuesday, and was due to-day.
Between 8 and 9 o'clock, when the storm
was at the highest, the barometer, which in
the morning registered 30.40, and at 2
in the afternoon 30.10, stood at 29.83, and
was yet falling rapidly. The wind was
then blowing at tho rate of thirty-seven
miles an hour, and apparently gaining in
velocity. About 0, however, it calmed
suddenly down, and the feelings of prop
erty owners and people began to be more
confident, a breeze springing up from a
more easterly direction, though not with
as great strength as before. Tha tide is
now falling, and no more heavy waathar
is expected to-ni^ht. but in ths morniag it
is slid by old fishermen and observers of
the weather, with the incoming tide tha
wind will rise agi-un and blow with eg ual,
ti not greater violence.

Indianapolis, March 10.—Advices of a
horrible murder of two women living on a
farm fourteen miles from here on the
Lafayette pike reached here after 2 o'clock
this morning. The victims are Mrs. La
conda Forman, a widow aged ninety years
and a maiden daughter fifty-one years
old. They lived alone on their farm.
One of the bodies was found outside of the
house under a pile of straw. The other in
the kitchen of the dwelling. An axe was
tho instrument used to accomplish the
deed. There are very few particulars and
no clue to the murderers. The coroner
went out from here, but has not returned.
Very little additional information h?.s
been received in regard to the mnrdsr of
Mrs. Foreman and daughter. Tho coroner
has not returned. The greatest excite
ment prevails in the neighborhood, but
nothing has developed to discover the
guilty parties. An attempt was made
three weeks ago, by unknown parties, to
enter the house. On another occasion an
attempt was made to overcome the in
mates with chloroform.

The Future of the Market a Question of

[Special Telegram to the Globe.l
Chicago, March 10.—The week ended on
'change with a dull, quiet feeling general
in all the markets. Wheat again weakened,
the demand not being equal to the supply
and everybody seemingly afraid that a
large quantity of long stuff would be
thrown out at any moment, rumors of an
unloading by the large holders being cur
rent and obtaining credence. Corn was
doing better. The receipts for the week
were 1,088,000 bushels against 274,000
bushels for the corresponding week last
year. The speculative demand was good,
but almost exclusively on local account,
and prices during the whole of the session
were confined to a very narrow range?
closing at about the inside prices for all
of the options except July, which was
steadier. Oats were quiet and steady, the
demand and offerings both being light, the
receipts were also large, and for tne week
they were larger than for any correspond
ing time on record. Rye and barley weak.
Pork opened a shade higher,
but there was little disposition to either
buy or sell, and the market was very quiet,
and closed at about the last sales on yes
terday's call, and the market stupid and
dull. Lard advanced 5c per 100 pounds,
but trading was moderate. Short rib sides
were a shade higher at the opening, but
closed about the same as yesterday.
In the wheat pit a fair aggregate specu
lative business was transacted, although at
times the market ruled very quiet. Fluc
tuations in prices were confined within a
range of %c, and finally closed about %c
lower than on 'change yesterday. The re
ceipts were moderate, and foreign market
advices indicative of a dull feeling. The |
decline was attributed to pretty free !
speculative offerings. Reports of stormy !
weather in the Northwest did not appear j
to have any but temporary effect on this
market, being overcome by the rumors be
fore referred to, following heavy offerings
by a prominent long operator. Spring
wheat was in fair request and rather firmer. j
Winter was quiet, with but little offered.
The flour trade is unchanged.
In the corn pit there was a moderate !
business transacted and fluctuations of |
prices were confined within a small range. j
The receipts were smaller, and there was
less pressure on the part of speculative
operators to realize. A good shipping do
mand also existed. These influences, to
gether with reports of stormy weather in
the Northwest, had a tendency to sustain
prices. Foreign advices were of an un
favorable tenor. Prices fluctuated within
about J£c, and finally closed %a better for
March and April, %o lower for May than
closing figures on 'change yesterday. No. 2
and high mixed receipts dated March 7, and
since closed at about 59c. Receipts dated
Feb. 20 to March G inclusive, quotably %c
less. Round lots of regular quotably same
as March. Rejected in fair demand. New
mixed in good demand and prices very ir
regular, depending on location. The lib
oral demand for April by some heavy
speculators who took all that was offered
led to a good deal of uneasiness on the
part of the shorts who bought freely.
On the board oats were more quiet and
trading light, with prices somewhat better
early in the day, but dropping back later
and at the close was slightly below yester
day. The cash offerings were mainly on
the sample market, and doing better than
the prices named for cash in store. No. 2
cash was fair sale for fresh receipts at 42c.
Samples were going out rather slow, still
quite a good many cars were wanted and
about all on sale were taken at good
Rye was going slow and ruling some
what below yesterday, with a fair call for
cash, but with speculation neglected. No.
2 cash sold at Ci,!4'c for car lots fresb to
about G3c for regular. Sample lots were
Barley continues dull and holders of the
ca?h property were finding it extremely
difficult to bring about sales, and were
compelled to accept a low range when do
ing so, with home and buying slow and
speculation lifeless. No. 2 cash not men
tioned, while No. 3 was dull at 51c for
fresh receipts and sample lota slow, with
the better cars going off fairly, but the
poor has to be placed in store as unsal
able on the track.
Trading in hog products was
comparatively light to-day. The market
ruled firmer and prices averaged higher
on all the leading articles. Speculators,
both local and outtude, were backward
about trading, and shippers were favored
with very few orders. Foreign advices
showed a little stronger feeling in that
quarter, and lard and bacon were quoted
Sg6d higher. Eastern markets were stead
ier. The reoeipts of product were moder
ate, and the shipments quite liberal.
The offerings of mess pork were moder
ate and the demnrM was comparatively
light. Prices ruled firmer and were
advanced s©7^c and closed steady. Cash
in fair demand in a small way and steady.
March in fair request.
The inquiry for lard was moderate, and
the offerings were fair. Prices were ad
vanced 2}^Hsc par 100 pounds and closed
What is the probable course of prices of
hog product? is now a question agitating
the minds of a great many people. It is
an enigma that a large number would like
to have solved. There are those who are
firm believers that product will rule higher,
and then again there are those who believe
present values are higher than circum-
stances justify and hence lower prices
must prevail. The bull element seem to
be in the majority, and it is a fact that for
some time pest ralaes hive gone tip with
more ease than they have gone down. For
the time being speculation is relatiyely
light, due no doubt largely to the uncer
tainty resting as to the probable futnre
course of the market. The week past
has been a comparatively quiet one
in provision circles, and prices have ruled
rather steady and without important
changes. Speculative orders from the out
side were extremely light, not only in pro
visions, but in grain, and the great bulk of
the transactions were on local account.
The shipping demand continues-good, and
the shipments are reported as fully up to
last year at this time, with some improve
ment noted from Europe, especially for
meats for Germany for prompt shipment,
the recently passed edict not going into
effect until thirty days after its publica
tion, and no one on this side of the water
has yet been informed of its official pub
lication, so that extra exertions are making
to hurry the product through. There
were alto some foreign in
quiries for lard, our mar
ket being now as low as New York, the
latter city filling most export orders for
some time past, owing to the fact that that
was the cheapest market. The South con
tinues to buy quite freely, and there could
have been much more product sold during
the week than there was for immediate
delivery, but packers were not willing
sellers on the breaks. On two or three oc
casions during the week the bears raided
the market and forced a moderate break in
values, but there did not peem to be any
trouble experienced in regaining lost
ground, indicating that the market could
hardly be called a weak one, notwithstand
ing the average of price 3 was some lower
than last week.
It is safe to say that the arri- !
vals of hogs will have much
do in shaping values the coming few j
month?. Any marked increase over last
year will tend to depress values, bat unless j
we do get more hogs low prices are out of j
the question. The consumers took t c j
product freely last year at high prices, and
they will do the same this year unless they
have increased supplies to draw from.
Whether they will or not remains to be

an advance of sor 10 cents being made
almost daily. Only four thousand arrived
to-day, and the choicest lots brought $7.90.

LATE MINNEAPOLIS NEWS.
Last evening a girl was assaulted by a
ruffian on South Second street. She .man
aged to break from his grasp and run to
police headquarters, where she secured an
officer to escort her home.
Jim Moriarity, of police court notoriety,
held up a gentleman on the streets yester
day afternoon to the tune of $lfl. He WSfl
identified, and last evening Capt. Chase
found him carrying a high hard in an
East side saloon. He was sately ironed
and placed in limbo.
Last evening the monthly meeting of
the Mechanics and Workingmen's Loan
and Building association was held in the
board of trade rooms in the city hall, with
a large attendance. The receipts of the
evening were $4,898.38 and 500 shares of
new stock were issued. The association ia
in a highly prosperous condition.
Last evening the mayor and the commit
tee from the city council on gas, together
with a larger portion of the aldermen and
prominent and interested citizens made a
practical test of the electric light mast.
At 11 o'clock all the street lamp 3 within a
radius of one mile were extinguished, and
the eight lamps at the top of the 257 feet
mast with their 4,000 candle power each
held foil sway, lighting bridge and square
so brilliantly that the finest print could be
easily read. The sky was opportunely cloud
ed so that not even a star could interfere
with* its twinkling. The mayor and alder
men filled tha patrol wagon, while three
hacks were occupied by other?. A drive
was taken around Nicollet island, which
was found well illuminated. Thence a
practical tour of the East side was mad*.
Returning to the West Fide and Barge's
annex, refreshments were ordered, after
which another more extended drive was
taken to various points on the West side,
and all with satisfactory results. At no
point visited was it so dark that the time
could not be distinctly distinguished upon
an ordinary watch face. From hints dropped
by members of the gas committee it seems
perfectly safe to predict that the city will
soon be the possessor of the mast.
Police .Suits tor JSaek Pay for Sickness.

All were sent to the corporation counsel.
As back pay suits had not been heard of
at headquarters for several days, the sud

policeman when sick. The commissioners
