CAFT. BLAKE'S STATEMENT.
Capt. Blake, of the steamer Macalester,
was seen to-day by a Times reporter, a nd
whin inmtloued as to the suicidal theory,
"Of course I would not Uko to venture
an absolute statement to the effect that
Miss Bursley committed suicide, but I do
not see how It is- possible for a person to
fall over the roll of the boat In tbe manner
she did, unless there was some effort on
"One fact connected with tbe case
which looks suspicious is that she left
tlierestofUio party and went to the for ward
deck alone, under the pretense that tbe
air ou tbe inside ot the boat was stifling,
when thefact of the matter was everybody
was shivering with the cold. This cer
tainly seems strange to me, butl would pre
fer to nave tbe matter Investigated by tbe
authorities, which wm undoubtedly be
done at the prose time
"I have been on the river a long time,
and have been closely connected with the
management of steamboats for many years,
and tills Is the first accident of any kind
I have ever bad. I try to take every
precaution for tbe safety ot my paisengers
and certainly tried to do my duty last
night, however much criticized I may be
for my tardiness la getting the lifeboat
into the water.
"Have you a well organized drill system
io manning tbe bTcboatsT" asked the re
porter. REGULAR BOAT DRILLS
"We are required by the navigation
laws governing steamboats to hive such
a drill, and it has been my custom to have
tbe men go through such a manual at
least once a week.
"The boats are kept covered to protect
them from Uie weather, but the canvas is
so arranged that It can be easily taken
oft at a moment's notice
"No oue deplores the sad nnd untimely
accident which happened to Miss Burs
ley more titan I do, and I deeply sjmpa
thize with her parents in their deep be
reavement." JuspectorTbonrpson.of the custom bouse,
said that he thought the drill system was
m vogie on all the huge reputable river
steamboits and had teen tbe men drilling
on the Macalester.

Speculation Llreltest In Iodnstrlals
aud in Anthracite Coal, Whose
Troubles Seem Aboat Ended.
New York, Aug. 0. Wall slrn. 11 a.
ni. Bpeculatiye Interest centered. in the
industrials and anthracite coal dealers Uiis
nuirnine. Tobacco first rallied 4 1-2 per
coDt to 06 1-2, and then receded to 93 3-ia
94 1-3. Kumors were current that the
company would withdraw from tt'e pins
tobacco business , but this could not lie con
firmed. This would put an end to the out
side opposition. Bugnr was driven down
from 112 1-2 to 110 1 -Sal 10 1-2.
It was thought tbe raid was made lor
the purpose ot covering snorts in Tobacco
Chicago Oas and Leather preferred were
sligbtlr weaker. Tbe anthracite coal
ers, however, developed great strength,
Reading rising 5-8, to 19 3 8; Jer
sey Central 3 l-4,tolOSal07;Lackawauna
3 8. to 164; Delaware and Hudson 1, to'
13 1 7-8; Susquehanna and Western
7-8, to 13 3 8; do. preferred 1 3-4, t;.32 1-4.
The advance of these Issues was due t
the rcMral of the reports that the trade
troubles were nearlng an end. The general
market rukd yerj firm, notwithstanding
the engagement of gold for export to Eu
rope to-morrow. It is believed that about
as much more will be forwarded on Sat
urday. At 1 1 o'clock the market was quiet
and inclined to weakness .
A.t noon stocks were quiet and firm , after
1 1 o'clock the. gold exports havlDg failed
to dislodge holding. A. rumor was current
to the effect that anthracite coal presidents
will hold a meeting next week to consider
the situation, and this more than offsets the
efflux of gold, especially as crop condi
tions continued highly favorable. Even'
sugar and tobacco were in better request at
a slightly higher, range, y At midday the
market was quiet and firm.
