THE REPUBLIC: 'FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 14. 1900.
rA CHANGE FOR BETTER
IN ALL GRAIN MARKETS.
WHEAT AXD CORN SHOWED
A STRONG TONE.
The Markets Were at Their Best
Late, hut Failed to Hold Top
Prices of the Daj.
Thursday. Sept. 13. ir.
Outslda of the undertone of strength
shown, tlicro were practically no new de
velopments of interest In the local corn
situation, the market throughout most of
the day continuing In tho old rut of dull
ness that has characterized It nil through
tho week so far. It was otherwise the case
with tho higher-priced cereal, wheat, that
grain taking up a much stronger position
than It held yesterday, and which It con
tinued to maintain all through the session,
the upward inovcment of prices meeting
with n Important revorr.es. and the close
lieing at or near the top. The strength
displayed by this grain was the most sig
nificant feature of the situation, find it tin
ally became so prominent as to hi reflected
to a greater or less extent hy tho cheaper
cereal, with the result that nn almost
general advance In values went upon rec
ord. Wheat, being the strongest and attract
ing the most speculative attention, natural
ly gained most In price, closing with an
advanco of ,:c to .1 full 1c for the diy. Cora
only gained i" to '.frSo, while oats let

A Scnsntlnnnl Market Hnd In Cotton
Hammered Down by Hears.
Ft. Ijouls. Thursday. Sept. 13. 1300.
A vrry sensational market was experienced in
the speculative coitoi market to-day. The trad
Irg was extremely heavy. The bears pounJe.l
r.way at tho market all day. but there was so
much resistance that the Impression made upon
values was by no means heavy. Uverpool was
reported Irregular, but the demanl from local
srorts and bad crop news held tho market up,
tie net declines for the day at the close being
from 5 points better to only 1 to 4 points
lower. Spots were weaker and "mo lower, and
sentiment quite mixed.
IJoston wires that the Immense stock of cot
ton beid hy the PaclBc Mills at Lawrence Is to

cotton crtji of this year will be 9.TSO.0OO t.ale..

ENGINEER COCHRANE'S REPORT.
Discusses Appointment of Firemen,
for City Buildings.
Civil Engineer Alex. Cochrane of thn
President's department of the Board of
1'nbllc Improvements has flnlsheel a. report,
for submission to President Mc.Math, urclng
that the hoard adopt some measures tu
have the Municipal Assembly mexllfy tho
rules by which lircmen aro appointed for
public buildings, so that the engineers in
charge will have some volco In selecting,
retaining or elkcharglng their subordinates.
Mr. Cochrane says the firemen now em
ployed waste fuel, and the engineers are.
unable to exercise any authority because
the firemen procure their positions by the
grace of somo political "pull." and the en
gineers cannot dictate orellnary Instructions
without being reminded that they are pow
erless, the firemen having certain and po
tent lnllucnco with the frienels who are re
sponsible for their appointment.
The custom niw prevailing is for tho
Building Commissioner to make tho selec-.
tlnns. regardless of tho wishes of the sta
tionary engineers1. Mr. Cochrane Is desirous
that the rules governing the appointments
be so changed that the engineers, under
whom tho firemen have to work shall hava
something to say as to the men who ara
to bo chosen.
