I Special Telegram to the Globe. J
Chicago, Aug. — Fate seems to have
•espoused the cause of the bears and is
doing them effective service. Every up
ward movement is checked by some un
foreseen occurrence. Yesterday there ap
peared to bo sign* of renewed life in the
markets and a revival of business was
•hoped for. To-day the burning of the
Western Union building rendered useless
•325 wires, cut off the greater majority of
outside orders, and as a natnral result
wheat sold off under the heavy offerings
and sales of local and New York shorts
depressing all other markets and putting
an abrupt stop to the buoyant tendency of
the previous day. It has been one of the
dullest days of the season, and at times the
pits were almost deserted. Every market
was heavy and lifeless and
the scilpers controlled affairs. As stated,
wheat started the reaction, opening on a
basis of $1.04 3 3 for October. There was
a half hour of firmness and an apprecia
tion of about 34c, but the turn soon oame.
On the break one New York house bought
quite heavily at $1.041£, but later on the
general crowd proved too much for the
market and the price declined a shade
lower. On the curb this evening holders
are freely offering this option at $1.04%
with $1.04j£ bid. Business dragged heavi
ly daring most of the session. Operators
were not only deprived of their customary
market reports, but were prevented from
communicating with their customers.
Hence outside orders received were light
and speculation indulged in
was confined largely to the trading of lo
cal traders who, however,- were reluctant to
branch out with any freedom. The move
ment was dull and sluggish, and frequent
ly intervals of five or ten minute's elapsed
between the making of trades. 1 At the
close prices were %q under yesterday's
last figures on 'change, but later in the
day further concessions of Jjj@}4 c had to
be made. The movement of wheat out
was fair, 171,500 bushels being shipped
and lake freight engaged for 90,000 bush
els. Winter wheat was in good demand
and quite firm, J^c higher figures being
asked. New spring wheat is held at a
premium of i/c over old,
Corn held up remarkably well under the
circumstances. The receipts were again
over 900 cars, while there were
fewer orders than ever. As in other lines
the interruption of telegraphic communi
cation affected business and in speculative
circles particularly restricted the trading
largely to the operations of local opera
tors. The daj's^ movement for forward de
livery was considerably under the recent
daily volume, and at times the pit pre
sented an exceedingly dull appearance.
Lindbiom bought considerable September
and October corn. This had something to
do with the steadiness. The receipts were
again large, yet there was no weakness,
and prices ruled with remarkable steadi
ness, and fluctuations being limited to a
small range. The closing? averaged J^@34<J
higher than on yesterday. Cash corn met
with a fair demand. No. 2 sold at 50j^@
51% c, the inside to arrive. The charters
to-day were 200,000 bushels.
Oats were again quiet and dull on the
regular market. There were large arrivals
and with consignments mainly held on
track the sample offerings were heavy.
There was a good attendance of buyers
however, and all sound oats sold well . On
the regular market only a light business
was done, and this was in a speculative
way. The feeling was very steady and
prices were slightly better than at the
close of yesterday. Car lots of No. 2 sold
at 26@2C34C, and were taken mainly to
make up round la :-. The futures closed
?a@^4 c over yesterday gained late in the
session but the appreciation is not regard
ed as stable.
Rye was dull and about half cent lower, j
shipping orders were light, ]
liberal sales of cash were '
made with the stuff said to be taken main- j
ly to hold. S^eoulative trading was j
otherwise light, and futures were quite j
neglected.
Old No. 3 barley sold at 45e, the same as
yesterday. This was the only business
done. There were some bids and offers of
No. 2 on the speculative market, but they
were still somewhat apart.
There was only a light business reported
in the market for hog products, and the
changes in prices were comparatively
slight, speculators were not inclined to do
much trading, and the shipping orders
were checked to some extent by the lack
of telegraph facilities. Prices ruled
stronger and higher early in the day, but
ruled easier toward the middle of the ses
sion. Near the close the feeling was
steadier, and prices rallied
slightly. Foreign advices were
meagre and indicated no internal change
in prices. Easier markets were steadier in
a general way. The receipts of products
were fair and the shipments were quite
liberal of all kinds.
Pork was dull but averaged stronger,
■with the fluctuations confined within very
narrow limits. There was but a meagre
demand either for immediate or future
delivery, no urgency in the offerings and
nothing to create activity. Early the
market was strong and prices advanced
some, but reacted and closed 5c per bar
rel above yesterday. Cash and August
dull and nominally the same as the Sep
tember option.
There was not nearly that interest man
ifested in lard to day as there was yester
day, indeed the market must be quoted as
ruling dull. Prices were steady and early
were strong, with an improved tendency,
but the absence of outside orders made
trade drag and tended to weaken
values. As compared with the closing
figures on 'change yesterday, prices show
but a little advance. Cash and August
dull and nearly nominal at September
prices. Curb figures are the sale to 5o
under yesterday.
To-day, under the influence of light re
ceipts and a good demand by packers and
shippers, the market for hogs was active,
firm and 5 to 10c higher for heavy and
light grades, with most of the offerings
sold. Sales ranged from $5.15 @6. About
9,000 were received. The receipts of cat
tle were again fair, with only a few droves
;of choice to extra qualities, which were
sold to Armour at $6.20@6.35 by Keenan
& Hancock for dressed beef. The market
was firm for the best grades of shipping
cattle, but weak and lower for Texan and
oommon qualities. Sales were slow
and ranged from $3.75 for good
cows to $4.65@5.60 for fair
to good shipping, and from
$5.85 (&£ 6.35 for choice to extra prime steers
The receipts for the day are 7,000 head.
On the' curb this evening the following
prices were quotable: October lard $8.60;
October pork, $12.47}£; September corn,
50% c; October, 50^c; October wheat,
$1.04i£@1.04%. The feeling indicates
lower markets to-morrow unless unfavor
able weather or an improved demand oc
curs. The telegraph service, however,
promises to be fair, as the Western Union
i 3 straining every nerve to meet the emer
gency, being now well settled in the old
Mutual Union office across tho way, with
about half its usual complement of wires
working.
The decision of the directors on the
McCieoch Fowler lard matter will be an
nounced on the board to-morrow.
NEW .YORK.
I Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 i
New Yobk, Aug. 21. — street was
largely in possession of the bears again
to-day and their manipulation caused a
feverish market on the stock exchange.
The session opened with an settled feel
ing, Slayback selling Louisville & Nash
ville, L.L. White selling St. Paul, and
everybody selling Denver. The fire in the
Union's ■ office deprived the market of
many orders from the West, i The bear
talk was very demoralizing and in the
midst of it Denver was sold down on stop
orders to 21%.
After the first hour Slayback and others
mashed Louisville & Nashville down.
Quiet buying continued. Towards noon
the market began to improve slightly, and
during the middle hours was active and
strong, later becoming very dull . There
was a great deal of interest regarding the
presidency of the Denver road.
W. L. Scott said there is no trouble in
Denver finances and that the interest will
be promptly paid. F. Lovejoy, formerly
of the Adams express, has had the offer of
the presidency, and would fill the position
well if he would accept it. Sidney Dil
lon, Jas. F. Joy and James D. Fisk, presi
dent of the Marine bank, were all men
tioned at different times during the day as
presidents of the Denver. There was good
buying in St. Paul at 102. Alton earnings
for the second week decreased $6,000; Un
ion Pacific for eighteen days in August
decreased $18,000;Burlington,CedarEapids
& Northern, $2,000. The short interest
that was about closed cut on Saturday is
again very large and all stocks are lend
ing freely.
The result of the days's dealings
was Louvisville & Nashville lost
lJis c Omaha preferred 3« c and
Minneapolis & St. Louis preferred de
clined 2c while Denver & Rio Grande
gained J4C, Western Union lc, St. Paul
%c. Northern Pacific lc, Northern Pacific
preferred %c , Oregon Transcontinental
%c, Northwestern %c, Manitoba '40. At
the close there was a much better feeling.
The failure of Schutt & Knight with lia
bilities of $70,000 had very slight effect
on the market. The outlook for more of
an improvement favorable, quite a con
trast from that of twenty hours ago.
The incorporation of the National Tele
graph company at Albany, N. V., was
made public to-day.

Kasson, Minn., Aug. 21.— This place and
vicinity was again to-day visited by. a se
vere wind and . rain p\ storm, . and
near : .-V its -; close , accompanied by
hail, some of which were of . terrific . size.
The day opened with a stormy wind,' and
continued all the forenoon and until about
3 o'clock, the heavens in the mean , time
being covered . with . dark and ominous
locking clouds. About this time the wind
suddenly increased to a tremenduoas gale,
literally filling the air with dust and dirt,
This lasted for about half an hour with
but little rain falling. ' j The wind still
blew strong from the west and the sky was
still overhung in the dark and threatening
clouds as though we might not yet 1 ' have
seen the worst. The wind had
changed to the • south and
about 550 o'clock commenced a
ferocious rain storm which lasted for near
ly an hour, the wind shifting directly to
the north and about 6 o'clock hail began
to fall. The hail was not numerous, but
some very large ones were picked up. We
measured one several minutes after picked
up, measuring four inches, and one is re
ported over ten inches. Very little dam
age was done here, a window glass being
broken, there being but little wind dur
ing the hail storm. At this writing we
have had nothing from surrounding coun
try, but expect to hear of considerable
damage being done.
Later: since writing the above I learn
the storm has been very disastrous. Sev
eral residences are already reported as
destroyed and two persons killed and oth
ess injured.
CHICAGO WESTEBJJ UHIOH TELEGRAPH OFFICE
. BURNED.
Chicago, Aug. 21. — The five story stone
building, corner La Salle and Washington
streets, occupied by the Western Union
Telegraph company, Union National bank,
International bank, Associated Press and
numerous commission offices, was par
tially burned at 6:30 this morning, and
made completely uninhabitable by streams
of water thrown in the building. The fire
originated on the fifth floor, used as the
operating department by the Western
Union, and within twenty minutes every
description of property on the floor was a
mass of rains. Ten men were
on duty at the time the fire
originated by two duplex battery wires
near the switch board, and everything was
in a blaze in a moment. Within five min
utes from the discovery ot the blaze the
skylights and "transoms were breaking
from the heat and dropping out.
The fire department were on the scene
quickly and a heavy drenching given every
portion of the building. No special dam
age accurred to the main structure below
the fifth story. The Western Union imme
diately began the removal of its property
to the building on the north side of Wash
, ington street, where an equipment of the
Mutual Union company enabled it to h-n
die a portion of its business,
and preparations were at once made to re
move the entire business into that struc
ture for the time being. Market stock
quotations ceased for a time and little
business was transacted on 'change. The
loss to the Western Union may reach $75,
-000, but it is thought will fall below that
figure. The loss to the building is but
$30,000 owing to the prompt action of
the fire department. The loss to
the banks and tenants is slight.
The Western Union company this even- '
ing have evoked system out of the con
fusion precipitated by the destruction of
their main operating room. An army of
line men were employed throught the day
disconnecting the labyrnth of wires which
made their way into the ruins of the otd
building and connecting with tho Mutual
Union building across the way. The tele,
graph company estimates the loss at not
to exceed $15,000 to $25,000; no insurance.
The loss on the building is $30,000: the
loss to other tenants will not exceed $10,
-000. The building is insured for $130,000.
An order has been given for
the immediate reconstruction of
the building, and in doing so
the architect has been directed to plan one
of the finest operating rooms in the world.
All the Wheatstone instruments of the
company were saved. Twenty-five wires
had been connected with the new operat
ing room at 6 this evening, and by to- ■
morrow the company anticipate having a j
full force at work. The two banks burned
out sought quarters in the vicinity and
succeeded in transacting their usual busi
ness. The Associated Press temporarily
quarters in the office of the Times. Work
men will commence to clear away the
ruins to-morrow morning, and it is ex
pected that it will be ready for occupancy
in a month or six weeks.
A MIBACULOUS ESCAPE.
Stbutubs, Ohio, Aug. 21.— 8y the neg
lect of some one the switch at the east end
of the Pittsburg & Lake Erie yard at
Hazleton, two miles east of Yonngstown,
Ohio, the passenger train due at Youngs
town from Pittsburg at 11:30 a. m., ran
into the , rear end of the freight on the
main track and telescoped the caboose and
plowed through a coke car completely de
molishing both cars and badly wrecking
the . engine of the passenger train, which
was running thirty miles an hour. The
engineer, . Samuel Rose, reversed
the lever and stood by ;
the throttle, and came out most miracu
lously not receiving a scratch. The fire
man jumped and was badly bruised and
cut about the face, hands and body, but it
is thought not fatally. Wm. Johnson, ex
messenger, of Cleveland,? is considerably
bruised, and Chas. A. Walsh, a brakeman,
is also severely injured. The train took
fire, but was extinguished with buckets by
the passengers. About 100 passengers
were on the train and none were injured.

Eaton, president of the civil service com

STILL INVESTIGATING.
Important Witnesses Give the Senate Com
mittee ail Insight Into the Losses and
Result* t.f Various Strikes.
New Yoek, Aug. 21. — Before the senate
subcommittee on labor and education
there appeared this morning Richard Pow
ers, of Chicago, president of the Seamen's
union of the lakes. This union, he said,
improved the moral condition of its mem
bers, and had secured them higher wages,
and is now striving to procure the passage
of laws tending 10 diminish the risk of
life incurred by sailors, prohibit
ing the overloading of vessels,
and making it compulsory to man them
with suitable crews. A great number of
lake vessels, he said were unseaworthy, and
a law should be passed, he ur^ed, provid
ing that at least two thirds of the sailors
employed on American vessels should be
native born American?.
Geo. G. Block, as representative of the
journeymen bakers of this city, testified
that the condition of bakers was very de
graded, on account of the long hours they
are compelled to labor. They begin work
at 2 p. m. and continue until 4, 5, 6 and 8
a. m. The greater number are unmarried.
The average wages are $8.20 a week. The
bakers struck some time ago for a reduc
tion to twelve hours labor. The bosses
agreed to this, but when the men returned to
work the pledges given were broken.
Block stated that of the waiters employ
ed at beer saloons many are Prussian
army officers, German noblemen and
princes come to this country expecting
to make a fortune, but who found this the
only means of making a living.
In speaking of the brewers, Block, said
there are in this city thirty breweries em
ploying about 230 men. A trades union
was organized in 188 L shortly after the
j strike for a decrease in working hours to
twelve hours per day and extra pay for
Sunday work. The strike was won by the
men. The wages range from
$30 to $100 per month.
Andolph Strasser, president of the Cigar
Makers' International union, read .a large
quantity of statistics showing the average
rate of wages in his trade in this country
and the cost of living. The figures showed
that when there were existing organizations
a much higher rate of wages prevailed
than when the industry was unorganized.
The highest rate paid was $16 a week; the
lowest $5. Since 1864 there have been
362 strikes in the cigar business
won; 137 lost; 12 compromised and still in
progress. One strike lasted ten months
and was finally compromised. The strikes
actully cost $266,444, and there was an
actual gain tit wages of workmen of
$15,000 . per annum. There were 185
branches of international unions in this
country and Canada and a mem
bership of 50,000. Strasser suggested
legislative measures which would
tend to mitigate the evils which they cre
ated. Labor in general iv this country de
manded the enforcement, of national eight
hour law, to authorize the incorporation of
labor organizations and place them on the
same basis as other corporations; to estab
lish a national bureau of labor statistics,
and amend the revenue law by providing
that after May, 1834, no licenses be grant
en to cigar manufacturers employing
prison or penitentiary labor.

German Visitors to tli ■* Country.
The president of the Northern Pacific
railroad, Henry Villard, is, it seems, a
Bavarian by birth, with a warm heart still
for the old fatherland, and it was always
his earnest desire, according to the news
paper, "to see Germany represented by a
brilliant deputation in the hour of his tri
umph." A famous German painter has
even been engaged to "perpetuate" the
moment when Henry Villard, near the
western entrance to the Mullan tunnel, at
one of the most magnificent spots in Mon
tana, with his own hand lays down the last
rail and fixes it with a nail of massive
gold, a masterpiece of American art."
The "brilliant deputation," which sails for
America in the Elbe, will include official
representatives of the cities of Hamburg,
Bremen and Berlin, in the persons of two
senators and a member of the imperial
parliament. Maj Gen. yon Xylander, the
Bavarian military attache to the federal
council and Col. Bitter yon Xylander,com
mandingthe Ist Bavarian cavalry brigade;
an officer of the railway regiment of the
Prussian guards, a privy councilor attach
ed to the Prussian ministry of public
works, Prof. Hoff of the chair of chemis
try in the Berlin university, end the pro
fessor of geology at Munich;
Prof. Gneiss and Herr George
yon Bnnsen members of the
imperial parliament; Dr. Siemens, di
rector of the German bank and the director
of the South German Credit Foncier bank;
representatives of the Frankfort i.n\ other
chambers of commerce and of the German
Life Insurance society, the previous min
ister resident of the Hanso cities at Wash
ington, several government officials of
high rank and representatives of all the
leading German journals, with some emi
nent merchants, bankers and others.
"Without doubt," says . the National Zei
tung, "these German guests in the United
States will be received with delight by
Germans as well as Americans, and their
trip across America from the Atlantic to
the Pacific ocean will take the form of a
triumphal procession."
The heart of President Villar 1 doubtless
still beats warmly for the land of his birth,
and it is but natural that on that account
alone, to speak of nothing else, he should
wish to see Germany brilliantly represent
ed in the "hour of his triumph;" but it is
equally well known that it is in the inter
est of the great Northern Pacific Railway
company to see a flourishing population
flanking its line along its entire length,
and how could this result be better pro
moted than by taking means to attract to
its neighborhood the enormous stream of
emigration which annually flows westward
.rom the fatherland? Certainly the Ger
man people will hear enough of the great
Northern Pacific railway daring the next
month or two, and President Villard will
have shown himself to be a? proficient in
the arts of advertisement as he is remark
able for the virtue of patriotism.
