NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.
NEW YORK. Se|it. 29.?The Burling?
ton August statement furnished a le?
ver today to carry prices upward and
this development was the only factor of.
consequence bearing upon the general
situation. It is true that the indus?
trials to a considerable extent domina?
ted the market, but speculation showeS
a tendency to ignore fluctuations in this
group. This circumstance caused sonic
favorable comment, as did also the fact
that the general list lapsed into dull?
ness and showed comparative steadi?
ness when concerted attacks on the
specialties were made. London quota?
tions indicated a more favorable dispo?
sition toward Americans abroad. w!?icli
was retleeted in good buying here
throughout the day. Operations by the
bear faction were renewed in various
directions with Manhattan looming to
the front. Tobacco, of course, was the
most valuable point, and soon yielded
to 1.25. Covering by shorts put the
price back to 1.26 1-2, and intermediate
lluctuations between that and the close
at 1..2S 1-4, were accompanied by vio?
lent <lips. The stock, generally speak?
ing, showed a better tone and ended for
the first time this week with a net ad?
vantage. An analysis of the Burlington
figures proved that the fears concern?
ing i;. entertained yesterday were
groundless, and there was a brisk
movement to cover, which advanced
the price almost 2 points.
The bears had counted confidently on
accomplishing liquidation in the rail?
ways ..n the publication of the report,
and its good reception in. the street
pm^them to rout, and large lines were'
eovered.x Prominent interests were
ranged on the long side for a while and
the sentiment became cheerful, fall
money rates sagged to 2 1-2 per cent,
in the day. The action of the govern?
ment in anticipating the November in?
terest, coupled with the early receipt
of large amounts of gold in transit,
were responsible for the decline in
rales. Time money was also quotably
easier for the shorter periods, and some
prime mercantile paper was discount?
ed at 3 1-2 per cent. Considerable pres?
sure was concentrated against sugar as
the day drew to a close, but the stock
soon recovered ami ended firm in com?

Mr. Heath Caught In the Act. A Celebrat?
ed Lecturer Coming. New lluspitHl
Keady Tor Oi ctipancy. Mr.
Itrown In the Field.
At the next term of the Couny Court
Judg. Lee will be asked by the school
board o.' this county to approve the site
selected by-.: special committee of the
botygUor the new high school building.
ThoTTTt settled upon by the committee,
after mature deliberation, is one on
Anuistead avenue, wf&cin a hundred
yards of the point at s hieb tjie elec?
tric Aailroad leaves that thoroughfare
and stretches away toward Newport
News. A liner location close enough
to the railroad to be easy of access by
the ears in stormy weather could not be
found, while from the health point of
view, a consideration of the utmost im?
portance, it appears to be all that could
be desired. In recommending the pur?
chase of the lot which was owned by
Mr. II. S. Thompson, of this city, the
special committee were prompted by
motives absolutely free from selfish?
Nevertheless there are objections to
the location, one of which is of a some?
what gruesome character. Many years
ago the ground on which it is proposed
to erect the building was set apart by
its owner. Dr. Sheild. one of the old
time citizens and ^lave-holders of the
country, as ti colored burying ground.
Tt is not known how many of Dr.
Sheild's negroes are laid at rest there.
Ian it is saiu rT'.at^tTre number of graves
had reached almost a dozen when the
war broke out and the esteemed doctor
saw his slaves set free and his tilled
acres laid waste. He had set the fash?
ion, and the colored people continued
lo use the ground as a cemetery. All
of this is true. Hut shortly after Mr.
Thompson purchased the land he put a
number of men at work removing the
boiiies. and he says that all were trans?
ferred to another burial place. He is
preparing to build a residence on an
adjoining lot. and near by Mr. Frank
Darling is erecting one of the hand?

That is one objection. But there ere
others It is claimed that the commit.

agreeing to give Mr. Thompson $6600
for it asnd to throw in the West End
school house and lot for good measure.
In addition to this the committee pro?
pose to Tease the West End house
at $2? per month until the high school
building shall be reatlv far occupancy.
JPhioi tilings are objected to on the
ground that they are contrary to sound
business principles, and yet the com?
mittee, responsible for them, is com?
posed of the must highly respected and
successful business men in the coun?
ty. Of course, first-class business men
may make mistakes, but it may be set
down as a fact that any mistake that
the gentlemen composing the special
committee in question may have made
was a mistake of the head and not of
MISS KEARNEY COMING.
The Popular Temperance Lecturer to
Miss Beile Kearney, one of the ablest

The women of the Mississippi W. C.
T. I7, appreciated at once the value of
astie young woman to such a degree
the services pledged by this enthusi
that she was immediately appointed
State ?Superintendent of the Y work
and the L. T. L's. She courageously
began her work, gcing upon the plat?
form with the ease that comes from the
sense of a supreme need, and the faith
that God had sent her as His mes?
senger to quicken thought and enlist
Two years after enlisting in the ser?
vice of her State W. O. T. U.. Miss
Kearney was made National Organizer
by the National Convention of the W.
t". T. I", during its session in Boston.
Since then she has traveled a wide ex?
tent of country.
Last May the Mississippi W. C. T. IT.
elected her as President of the State
Union. She resigned this office in or?
der to atteno the International W. C.
T. U. Convention in London. There
she was appointed round-the-world
missionary, but declined because she
could not find a suitable companion
and, besides, doubted whether she was
physically strong enough to endure the
necessary work and travel. Miss
Willard and Lady Henry Somerset ap?
pointed Miss Kearney to represent
them and the W. C. T. U. at the Inter?
national Congress of Christian Work?
ers held in Grindelwald Switzerland.
While there she lectured in the'Pro?
testant Church. While in Paris "fche
spoke at the Belleville Mission, and

Miss Kearney is looked upon as one
of the leaders'of philanthropic thought
in her own home land, the South. She
has become identified with the great
heart of the nation's endeavor afterf
sober homes, nobler thought, purer liv^f

He said notlfoing. however, but left the
room and weiht to the club-house. On
the way back' he and Mr. Tignor paid
another visit tf> Heath's gin mill in or?
der to secure .additional evidence of
iiis guilt. This tttme they found a ne?
gro running the | place while Heath
was on the outside keeping a sharp
lookout for officers. Mr. Deistil asked
the man if he knW that he was vio?
lating the law, arid added that if he
didn't he would sAon find out. Heath
then came in and \vas plainly inform?
ed that a warrant) would be issuad
against him at onee.i The warrant Is

WASHINGTON, Sept 29.?The Neu
York club today gave the most flagrant
exhibition of disorganization and ama?
teur playing probably ever seen on the
Washington grounds. At the end of
the sixth inning Warner was put out of
the game for kicking. Joyce redistrib?
uted the players with the result that
but two men remained as originally
placed. Two players refused to play
in positions assigned them. They beg?
an an exhibition which disgusted the
spectators,when they were not moved to
laughter by the antics of the so-called
Giants. The farce was stopped by call?
ing the game back to the end of the
sixth Inning. Attendance. 1,000.
