Chicago, Aug. 31.— general downward
tendency characterized - »''_" ail of the
markets to-day resulting from increasing
receipts and continued holding back oa
the purt of speculators and exporters.
Wheat, corn arid oats are easy at the de
cline, and lard not much better. Rye and
pork are more -steady. With '.v... cars of
wheat, 848 cars and 10,500 bushels 'ot corn
and 265 cars and 8.200 bushels outs in
spected in nothing better ia to be expected.
Only 60,000 bushels ot wheat «er_ shipped
out, while tha charters were oven loss than
this amount. Corn was tho un!y grain
moving out of th. city to any ej-Unr, the
shipments being 588,000 '._..h_l_ and the
charters SGC,000 bu-hels.
Wheat showed a declining tendency from
tho opening, and prices gradually weak
ened into iarj.0 sales to tha
very close, r.t whic'i time. ?aiss were made
r.t "tho lo.ve.5 -'o'.-r. ot tho il.iy. The
market acts heavy at iha present decline,
and still lower prices-'are probable. The
trading was larger than usual, being B-im
ulatedby tho under fluctuations in prices.
There was a moderate demand, but no
argent call from any source, at least not
until values had receded to a basis of §1.02
for October, when there was somewhat
freer bidding. Foreign advices quoted
an easy feeling, and there is really no
argument on the bull Bide The decline
for the day is %c, but its importance is
intensified by the fact that it marks the ;
breaking away of tho market from its
condition of stagnation.
Corn was quite active at lower
prices. Warm weather here and
in the west had a depressing effect. The
receipts were liberal and larger than yes
terday, and shippors appeared less anx
ious about trading, reducing their bids
fully lc for the grades they were buying.
Baker has been a large seller all day. The
close is }:%c under yesterday, and bot
tom does not appear to have been reached.
There was an active trade in oats, but
the extraordinary arrivals were too much
for the market. Cash oats declined
•»|@lo, and August broke %c. The de
ferred futures were a trifle easier at the
decline. A good speculative demand for
cash existed, numerous round lots being
made up to deliver on August contracts.
The settlement prices of August trades is
27}<c, although cash closed fully a cent
Rye was steady, with very light trading.

Provisions were a little unsettled to-day
under the influence of a further advance
in live hogs. The opening was strong and
early sales wore at a higher range than
yesterday. This continued during the
morning, but in the closing hour the de
pression elsewhere had some effect and the
feeling became ;i triile easier. The trading
was larger than usual, and a very fair bus
iness as dona. It is thought that higher
prices may rule after to-morrow's deliver
ies have been made and the monthly stocks
Pork ruled more or less irregular though
the day's fluctuations were confined with
in narrow limits. Tho chances experi
enced on October, the principal future
traded in, covered a range of fifteen cents.
Prices at the close were essentially the
same as yesterday's closings. The trading
was fair, and the market commanded
more attention than for some days past.
Lard was more active but easier, and at
the closs the market indicated a decline of
5§ r'.c fr.m yesterday's closings. The
beat prices of the day were obtained at
the oper.ing, when the trade exhibited
considerable strength. The business
transacted was quite fair, with
the trading largely confined to October.
At the stock yards the cattle trade did
not open in a very spirited manner. The
fact that the receipts were light led holders
to think that they could get an advance,
and their firmness resulted in slow trading.
Good to choice natives composed only a
a small proportion of the offerings, and
for anything answering to that description
sellers found it possible to get a little bet
ter figures than on the day before. In
other grades there was no perceptible
advance, but it was an easy matter to effect
sales at Saturday's prices. The trains on
some of the roads notably the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy, were late, and only
a moderate business accomplished. But
the holders were hopeful and the
general market had a firm look. There
was a moderate run of western cattle
which, under a good demand, sold stronger
than on Thursday.
There was an active and stronger hog
market. At the start there was sharp com
petition between the several classes of buy
ers, and pices advanced 3@10c. There
was a quiet feeling later, but the advance
was sustained throughout, the market be
ing steady. There were a few sales of
extra light at 6.05 @6.10, bat the general
range was from $5.75 Q 6.
I Special Telegram to the Globe. J
New Yobk, Aug. 31—The market for
stocks presented a much better appearance
to-day. The early advance in the Villard
properties brought forth an unusual bear
demonstration, but they W6re short. Lake
Shore seemed to be about the only weak
spot, and at 10:10 there was a free supply
of the stock. The nickel plate attachment
seems to affect it unfavorably. The buying
of the dividend payers continues. Chicago,
Burlington A Quincy was particularly
strong while the Chicago, Rock Island <_
Pacific, Chicago, Milwaukee <fc St. Paul
and Chicago & Northwestern were also
. noticeable in this respect There was less
bear talk than usual, and the reports of
excellent weather throughout the corn belt
exerted a good influence. The
grangers were firm all day
and the lighter properties as well. Den

days past, varied but little. Lackawaua

dealings showed a good deal of strength,
and there was a demand for stocks up to
the last moment. Oregon Transcontinen

o'clock, as did the Northern Pacific. There
was a period of dullness after the ear

Lake Shore was pounded on the report
of catting of rates, without having, how
ever, much effect on the market, which
continued to show better strength and tone.

sold in large blocks by H. N. Smith and

Nearly all other stock?, especially the div
idend papers, gained in pries at nearly
every sale. There was a quiet but steady
advance, and the result of the day's busi
ness indicates that the corner has been
turned, and that we are to have an upward
movement. Still it may be too soon to
place much confidence in this indication,
for the bears are flushed with success and
confident, and the bulls are timid and
easily stampeded. Still there is much

bears will rot have the market entirely to

Round House Burned.
An alarm of fire was sounded a few min

noon. The streets were crowded with
people rushing south. News was soon
received that the round house belonging
to the Omaha company was on fire. The
hose carriage was on the ground in good
time, but the delay caused by the want of
hose sufficient to reach the burning build
ing was disastrous so far as saving the
round horse was concerned. By the time
a stream of water was brought to bear on
the building it was past saving. Fortu
nately the most valuable of the contents
were safely removed. It is supposed the
fire originated from sparks blown on the
roof from a passing locomotive. Another
suggestion is that the conflagration may
have been caused by matches in the hands

and search was | immediately instituted as
to the cause of the noise which resulted in
finding a hat which was afterwards worn

making the fatal plunge Broeck was seen
sitting on the lake shore removing his
shoes, but ■ at the time ' his intention to

"When English sparrows were first
brought to this country," said a gentle
man who takes great interest in animated
nature, " we had urgent need of them.
It was difficult to walk in shady places,
without having white worms drop upon
one's head. Our native birds did not
des troy the worms. But the . sparrows
have been so petted that they no longer
care to eat the worms, and the trees,
both in New York and Brooklyn, are be
ing devoured this season. ' _ - ...
"In addition, the sparrow is becoming
an intolerable nuisance in driving away
song birds. Ho is a wonderfully power
ful and pugnacious brute, considering
his size, and you' will find that gentle
men who put an increased value on their
property because of the robins and other
birds that sang in the trees now say that
much of the attraction has been driven
away by the invasion of the sparrow.. ,

"I am sure that sparrows have some
idea of the code of honor. A few days
ago I saw two of them engaged in a bit
ter encounter in a hole about six inches
deep. On either side of the hole was
another sparrow, and they evidently were
there in the interest of fair play. They
stretched their necks over the combat
ants, and without interfering watched
every peck, and, so far as I could see,
took a mental note of the first blow and
the initial knock down. The sparrows
in the pit fought so hard that I separat
ed them ; but they flew half a dozen
yards away and renewed the duel, fight
ing until one bird was killed. Then tho
other three flew away, apparently on the
most amicable terms."— York Sun.

there was no parting of the seams, no
weakening of the bolts that held deck
