for hours and scanned the bulletin boards
onlv to read the word "Lato" In big letters
liefore every train schedule, the delay rang
ing from three to ten hours. The railroad
people say that they are doing the liest they
can, lut the rush has thrown all calculations
w roug.
The leading feature of to-day was the
annual reunion and parade of the ex sailors,
and additional interest attached to the
event from the fact that It is probably
the last time that the Jack tars wilt be
seen at a Grand Army encampment, sen
timent in the organization favoring the
lidding ot future conventions in the East,
at c!ati best suiting the majority or the
members.
Eclat was therefore given to to-day's
turnout by the co-operation of the ex
prlsotiers ot war and of the survivors ot
the celebrated Mississippi River ram
fleet, which was put Intel service at
Pittsburg and Cincinnati and look part
In operations on the Mississippi, Yazoo, and
Ited rivers, as well as In the great naval

fantry and a battery, followed by six com
panies of the Louisville Legion. "
Next In the line were vcral lodges
of the Uniformed Knights of Pythias of this
city. New Albany, Jeffersonville and other
Indiana cities. The Juvenile Drill Corps
and twocumnanlesoftheUniformed Knights
ol Honor led the ex prisoners or war, and
the Ram Fleet Veterans, while a division
composed of jSons of Veterans who are en
route to their national encampment at
Knoxvllle acted as escort to the Naval
Veterans. The latter turned out in fair
numbers, and in their loose trousers, blue
Jackets, with broad white shoulder collars,
and flat naval caps, presented a picturesque
apnea ranee.

Matter Is Given a Setback.
The report which It was announced
would be made to-daj.jy the Commission
ers of tbe propositions submitted by the
garbage crematory companies to Mr.
Joshua VTarfield, the contractor, has been
postponed on account of tbe delay in thff
preparation ot the bonds required.
There tjould have been a meeting In
Baltimore yesterday for tbe -delivery of
the bonds, bnt It is alleged that neither
of tbe companies was represented there,
and tbe inrormattoi was eibtamed this
morning that a secoid date has been
fixed for tbe conference.
It Is understood that tbe riling ota bond
of indemnity with Mr. 'NVarlield Is a con
tlmrencyupon which he himself will be able
to otitalu security on his bond under the
garbage contract.
The life of the garbage contract in ques
tion liegins with the 1st of November, and
it Is very much to be desired that the cre
matory plant, or plants, shall be ready
at that time for a practical test.
Vhether this can lie now accomplished
In the time remaining depends altogether
upon the speed with which the wort of
construction can be accomplished.

YERY WEAK BEAR OPENING
Beporta of Heavy Gold Shipments
on Saturday the Main Cause.
Firmer Prices Follow As-suruncoTliat
tbe Bund Syndicate Would Replen
ish Depleted Gold Itciterve
New York, Sept. 10 Tbe stock market
opened "weak on lower cables and prospecti
of heavy gold shipments on Saturday. Ths
decline In price ranged from 1 8 to 3 4 per
cent, Louisville &. Nashville and the grang
ers leading the downward movement
After the opening the stock market be
came firm on rumors that the bond syndi
cate Intended replenishing the gold reserve
some time to-day. The early decline or l-4a
I per cent was speedily recovered in most
cases and the market presented a firm front
at 1 1 o'clock. In the downward movement
at tbe opening St. Paul sold off 1 2 to
77 1 8; Atchison, 1-2 to 21 1 8; Kock
Island, 1 2 to 80 3-4; Louisville &. Nash
ville, 7-8 to 63 7 8; Reading, 3 4 to 19 38;
Tennessee Coal and Iron, 3 4 to 45 1-4;
Leather, 1 to 16; preferred, 3 4 to 85 1-4,
and Union Pacific, 7 8 to 15. London waa
mainly responsible for the weakness of Lou
isville and Nashville, Reading and St.I'auL
having sold fully. 1Q.O0O shares of thes
stocks, according to conservative esti
mates. Toward 11 o'clock lt was rumored In
the board that Assistant Secretary ot the
Treasury Curtis and tbe bead of the bond
syndicate were In conference. This was
a Rood enough Morgan Tor the bulls to start
a covering movement, and prices rallied all
along the line, and at the time of writing,
II o'clock, the market Is tolerably firm.
Lower figures are recorded after 11
o'clock; but business was light. Opera
tors were more interested In the interna
tional yacht race than in stocks, and tbe
variation in prices excited little comment.
The gold shipments and a belief that the
Government Crop Report, to be issued late
to-day, would he less favorable than ex
pected, has created quito a short interest
In the market. Tbe specially weak stocks
in the past hour were the Grangers, Sugar.
Missouri Pacific and L4S. At noon tbe
market was weak In tone and closed wlOjou
rallying appreciably.
