INiEW YORK, March 9.?Trading In
stocks was listless all Vhty w&th the ex

There were buying orders at t'he opeu
ing and 'there was the additional iinoemt
ive ot .a sharp recovery in Americans
on the I.ond' ?n ext 'hange, so that t'he
professional: traders Who 'were seekling

the Ibear contingent suoceeded1 in ibHtt
<!i:ig 'Up prices t?> uncover margins of
some of the shorts. The -resulting
Scraimlble to cover helped the rise wh'ieh
was most marked 'in t'he speol?fllties,
but iw,hi:eh extended up to a point also
!:n the railroad 'I-ist. One unimportant,
failure resuftdd .f^m the squeeze of
the shorts. After the redtietion otf tJie
sit -rt Interest prices sagged with oWly
occasional slight lintorru'pt'H tis- during
the remainder of 'the day. In the late
dealings the level of the market hud
fa'Men practica' ly to last -night's level',
tut a -hardenil-ng at nhe close resulted
in ,t small gain thtoughout the list.
The progress of a period Ii a1 setiWe

some! buying here for that accvuiht.
The feverish and uncertain tone of the
foreign markets was, however, mot,? or

Argument for a New Trial to Be Heard
?by Judge Blackstone.
The order granuintg a writ of error on
the application of J. T. Edwards, which
was signed by Judge. Blackstone <m
Tuesday, was delivered to Capt. Sam
Wo d, clerk of the circuit court, yes?
The effect of the writ is to 'bring the
?mutte-r before the circuit court tor ad
judivtuk n. On Tuesday next, when the
t intuit court wfM convene, the first
matter to be taken up will be the argu?
ment for a new trial on the grounds
set forth 'in the petition. It is expected
that Messrs. Boykin and Lett, of New
I <>rt News, who are the counsel for the
commonwealth, will Tnaike a ?determined
off i t to prevent the granting of a new
t:io. and the outcome of the argument
wi'W ive watched with considerable in?
terest on account -f the hard battle
that has already been -fought for the
accused by his attorneys. Messrs.
Hughes and Causey, of Hampton, and
Judge J<ihn Neely, of Norfolk.
Edwards has been twice tried f..r fe
loniiously shooting Mr. J tin Patrick in
the early part of last summer and on
tooth trials he was found guilty. In the
first instance 'he was given ten months
in the penitentiary, but a new trial was
obtained. At the January term of the
coiilnty court he- was: again tried and
this ttime the jury decided that two
and a hak' years' imprisonimerat was the
proper I ? ltvishmeti't. Ain effort was made
to secure a new trial for Edwards by
u motion to the county court, but the
motion was not sustained arad he wos
sent. n--e,l. It was then that .the appli?
cation for the writ of error was made
to Judge BVackstxxne with the result
trot the writ was grnnted.
If .the court decides from the argu?
ments presented to lit niext Tuesday
that the accused is entitled to a new
trial, Mr. Ed-wards will have another
opportunity to establish Iiis innocence
before a Jury of his countrymen.

A BUSY FOUR MINUTES.
Wlint n Mini Can Dream In ci Cat ?'np
LnntliiK from Bl4U to Bi4(i,
Burton had set his alarm clock for
5:30, as he had some writing to do,
and knew that he couldn't steal time
for that purpose at the office dnr
ing the day. When the alarm clanged
he awoke, sat up in bed, thought lazily
for a moment, and utterly forgot his
writing. It was 5:42?for ho looked
at tbe unwinking face of the dial?
when he settled back for an involun?
tary doze?one of them quick little
naps that overpower a man In the
short hours of ttuj morning.
A few moments later he was stand?
ing In a small lnclosure surrounded by
log walls. A brown horse stamped
beside him, and a woman-?bearing a
marvellous resemblance in face anil
voice to his wife?was trying to tell
him something. He shook his head,
disengaged his arm from her restrain?
ing hand, and tightened the saddle
girth upon the brown horse. On the
horse's back he sprung, the walls op?
ened, and he sped out, while behind
him came streaming a tumultous rout
of horse and foot soldiery in blue uni?
forms, whom he had really failed to
notice before, but who evidently be?
longed to the walled lnclosure.
The air was cool, bracing, delicious
?the skies bright blue. To right and
left rolling hills of considerable height
were crowned with underbrush and
straggling trees, while deeper woods
extended to the background. He no?
ticed that the leaves were resplendent
in red and yellow, and he realized that
October was in all its glory.
Somehow the ride must have been
short. There was a whirl of dust and
a coach whizzed by?not a stage coach
of the West, but one of those affairs
with broad tires and cushioned seats
so much in vogue for tally-ho parti?;?.
He found himself, horse and all, by the
side of the log wall again, and the
coach passed inside. The next instant
ho noticed a puff of whito smoke up
on the hillside, about 1,000 feet away.
Then came other white puffs, and the
leaves flew in spots on either side of
him. He called his men?called In a
voice which seemed to give no sound?
and there was no noise accompanying
the white puffings up thore among the
underbrush. His men began to skulk
behind trees and walls, and opened tire
upon the places whence the white
clouds kept rolling.
A man in black ran out ui>on the
hillside, emerging from a clump of
brush. There was a general Dring
and the man staggered. As ho fell
Burton noticed that he had changed
his costume in the moment of the fall
and was now arrayed in a blue-gray
uniform. He picked himself up and
reeled back among the trees. There
was more firing and Burton awoke.
Fully believing himself hours behind
his office time, he looked at his clock.
It registered 5:46. All tho events of
the dream had passed before his drow?
sy mind iu four minutes of actuality.
Cycling in ISnropean Turkey.
According to a correspondent In Sa
lonlca, the cyclist who is fond of a bit
of fast work on the road can there
find himself accommodated without
difficulty. All he has to do Is to sprint
for all he's worth, the police regula?
tions in nowise being framed to inter?
fere with his pleasure.
Perhaps this form of excitement is
excusable in Turkey, which possesses
no tracks whereupon the budding Zim?
merman, or Bourillon In embryo, may
take a fast turn against the watch. Al?
though the population of Constantinople
Is said to exceed one million, there are
i but three hundred cyclists there, so,
apparently, cycling is in its infancy
on the Golden Horn.
In this respect the neighboring prin?
cipality of Roumanla Is better off, for
there Is a capital track now at Buch?
