Territory of Oklahoma was continued
to-day before the Houne Committee

Clarke of Kansas. They insisted that
in opening tho unoccupied land to

, A leading Liverpool weekly grain
circular says wheat continues steady,
but business is dull and dragging.
Prices are nominally unchanged.
Calling ports remain almost bare of
cargoes. There is a good inquiry for
shipment for the United Kingdom
and the continent. Business in Cali
fornia' and Oregon wheats is fairly
active. Here, since Tuesday, the de
mand for wheat has been slow, and
corn has been firm. At to-day's mar
ket wheat was in quiet request, and
prices were unchanged. Trade in eof n
was limited. Flour was more active.
Peas were unchanged. !eann were

Is there no bottom to the cotton
market? is , the question most fre
quently asked on 'Change just now.
Since Monday there has been a de
cline of 3-lti; here, Jn in New York, Jc
in New Orleans and jd in Liverpool,
the price of cotton in that market
now being 4 l&Hkl, the lowest price
reached since ISIS, when it touched
4Jd ; the lowest price since the war
was December 14; 1S78, when it was
43d. It is feared that it may declino
still lower before it reacts. Much will
depend upon the ability of the Soifth
to withhold sales in tho present de
pressed condition of the market.
Memphis is doing her share in hold
ing up the market, but is not backed
up by a similar policy nt other South
ern markets. Some of our local cot
ton men doubt the wisdom of the
policy of refusing to meet the market,
and argue that it sends orders to New
Orleans that ought to come here. The
futuro alone can determine, whether
tho policy that now obtains is the
w iser one, but should it prove not so
our cotton factors will at least have
the satisfaction of feeling that they
have made a manly'fight in the inter
ests of the planters.

THE GREAT CIIlRCil TRIAL

MURRER COXUMEI).
Dr. DaalePi Masterly Effort ia Reply
Iatenss Excitement Over
the Matter.
laraciai to tii 4rriAL.I
Locisvii.lr, Ky., February 19. The
Rev. T. : Converse continued bis
demurrer to tho indictment on the
charges against him at the presbytery
trial this morning. He reiterated his
assertion that they were vague and in
definite, and said they should be dis
missed because there was a lack of
anything which would sulmtantially
show a crime had becu committed;
that the prosecutors had not shown
they were deeply interested in the
result, and that the spirit in which the
charges were made was litigious and
not in keeping with the spirit of the
law.
DR. DANIKk's KKHPONSK
was a masterly effort. He said if the
defendants will allow this indictment,
with its twenty-five s)ccincatioiis, to
go iM'fore the church with an affidavit
that it is so indefinite that they cannot
say whether they are guilty or not,
theh he would drop the prosecution
immediately. Continuing, Dr. Daniel
said it was the first time in the history of
a church trial that a defendant had
demurred to an indictment, so far as
he had heard. The charge was spe
cific, that of falsehood and was sub
stantiated by names and dates. Tho
Converses were not proper persons to
throw a barrier in the way of the prose
cution ; the best thing they could do
would be to plead not guilty and let
the trial go on.
DR. MORRISON
moved that Converse's objections to
indictment be overruled, and this mo
tion was carried.
TUB CONVURSES
were then allowod to plead guilty or
not guilty, and amid intense excite
ment they plead not guilty under cer
tain conditions. It was then discov
ered that an important point in the
proceedings had been overlooked, and
its whole action of the afternoon was
declared void, and at tho close of the
day's session the matter reverted to
tho motion of Morrison to overrulo
the demurrer.
AT TUB NIGHT NESSIOH
the Messrs. Converse filed their writ
ten answer, w hich was as follows:
We are ready to put in our answer.
We wish to say first that we are not at
all insensible to the taunts put on us
for our delay ; in delaying we sought
the welfare of the church. Wo be
lieved that in the indictment there is
such rubbish as will delu the
trial. We tried to remove
that rubbish. We now plead
with the impossibility of any
certainty of calling tho right
witnesses. In answer to the charge
and specifications tho defenennts
would remind the presbytery that we
are not called to account by tho
court, but we have called for the trial
and investigation of tho assertions
which have been made upon ourselves
through tho secular press. We except
to the decision of the court in overrul
ing the objections that havo been
presented. In making the jd
which from the beginning w
4 announced our intention to niake.
we .do not bereby waive any
right belonging to us or any right to
insist upon a rectification of any error
that tho court may have committed.
We plead to the charge, not guilty,
and most indignantly and emphati
cally deny anything that reflects on
our truthfulness and Christian char
acter. T. K. C0NVKRK.
IT. B. CONVKRSK.
It was then announced that tho
witnesses were not present, and after
some wrangling a motion to postpone
the trial until June llith, was made
and adopted.
A commission wus appointed, con
sisting of the Rev. lrs. T. D. Wither
spoon, C. R. Hemphill and J. J.
Cooke, and Eldr-rs T. W. Bullitt and
J. Garrett, to tako testimony and
depositions and present them to pres
bytery when it meets for trial June
15th.

Tho adjusters for the various insurance

Underwriters' and the Continental.
Tho total loss will reach near 120,000,

Apacnea Who Want la Become

Santa Fb, N. M., February 19. A
band of Chiricahua Apaches have just
visited SantaFe and called on the Ter
ritorial officials. To Governor Jtoss
they expressed a desire to abandon
their present reservation life and own
their lands in severalty for the pur
poses of farming and raising stock like
white people. Tho Governor asked
them if they were willing to give up
their contributions they received from
the government for their support, and
told them that would be necessary if
they went to farming. They renlied
that they were, and that many of the
tribe felt the same way, as they naw
nothing but ultimate extermination in
reservation life. Goronimo is a mem
ber of their tribe, but is half Mexican,
and is regarded with distnst and
aversion by the majority of he trile
on aivountof his many criuieiand tht

Hklkna, Ark., February lit Owing
to the expiration of our prvvrit iost
mastcr's term, his successor is the all
absorbing topic of the dry. Until
quite recently it seemed k' be gen
erally conceded that Mr. II. P. Grant
would get the position. Col. Allen J.
Polk and Mr. T. O. Hiniluiin being
the other applicants. Quite t commo
tion was created by Mr. Hindjion tele
graphing a friend in Washington that
the petition of Mr. tirant contained
the signatures of the Republitans mid
colored voters, and that a mniler of
the bona lido Denioonitie sunaturi s
were obtained through Misrepresenta
tion. A friend of Mr, G-anl's in
Washington, believing that :he tele
gram of Mr. Hindman was cilculaU-d
to injure his interests, tehgrnphed
Mr. Grant that such a U'leunui had
been received. Mr. Grunt went to
Mr. llindmun for explanations, and
was confronted with the assurance
that he had sent such a tclcirrain and
was prepared to prove the contents. A
serious difficulty was prevented by
bystanders. Mr. Hindman then went
to work and secured tho signatures of
quite a number of gentlemen who had
signed both petitions, Hindman 'h
first, to the cued that they signed Mr.
Grant's petition wTlh the understand
ing that i w as for him for second
choice, and that they did not know
tho petition's caption contained a
clauso reverting previous signatures to
other petitions. This, with other iu
K)rs, has lecn forwarded to Washing
ton, and there the case rest. Col. Al
len J. Polk had no part in the contro
versy, and many who were not friend
ly to him before now express them
selves favorably toward him.

QBirkinguam, Ala., February 19.
About 9 o'clock yesterday morning
Jo3eph U. Nichols, a well-known Fa! en
agent for powder and dynauiiti here,
left,his office in the Operohouae b!ock
right in the heart cf thr ci'y and went
tohiaroamon the third tl or of the
same block. He had been drinking
the day before, bu; then ssemed iu
good enough spirits. He did 'not re
turn in the afternoon and bis partner
sent a boy to the room for him. The
boy getting no response W his repeat
ed knocks, looked tlnough the tran
som and saw him sitting in a
chair. He was atili there this
morning and his friends concluded
that something must be wrong, so
they broke the door open, and Mr.
Nichols was found to be dead, a pistol
ball in his head just above the left
ear having done tue work. The pistol
lay on the floor and on the table was
a piece of paper on which was written :
"Bury me in Birmingham." The deed
was do doubt done yesterday, but no
one had any intimation of it till to
day. Nichols was forty-eight years old
and a widower. He came here from
New Orleans about f our years ago, and
leaves a five-year-old eon at Algiers,
acioss the river from New Orleans.
He was a quiet, gentlemanly man,
with no eppecial fault, barring occa
sional sprees. No one seems to under
stand why he killed himself.
A frary Negro' Horrible Crime.
Savannah, February 19. The dead
bodies of two unknown nrg'O boys,
eight and ten years of sge, were found
tied to the foot of a rapling in the
woods six miles from the city this
morning. They bad been ggged,
tneir mouths laving been rammed
full tfc'ay and leaves. Their aims
and legs were tied teg ther and
were fa tened o tbe tabling by a
rope around their necks. There
were no marks of viiUnoe on tbe
boJies. They are thought to be
brothers. John Graham, a easy ne
gro living near tbe spct. is the sup
posed murderer. He is insane on re
ligion, and it is believed he killed
them as a sacrifice. He was captured
this evening, and neither denies nor
admits his guilt. He is irresponsible.
A Xoble Hangman.
London, February 19. As a result
of a statement that a well-known bar
onet had assisted Hangman Perry in
barging tbe three Nethelby burpUrs,
Sir Claude Da Creapigny, in an inter
view to-day, admitted that he was the
one alluded to. He said that as he
would probably be sheriff, be de
sired to gain experience in order
that he might be prepared jn
caw he should be obliged to
act himself, In the absence of the
hangman. He slept in the prison
during the night, pinioned one cf tbe
culprits himse.f, and generally as
sisted Berry. The latter toosiders
Sir Claude a plucky individual, who

IM RKASINU ACTIVITY AT WEST.
ERN MERCANTILE CENTERS,
With a Corrfspondloc Decrease at
the Larger Atlantic Sea
board Cities.
Nkw York, February 10. Special
telegrams to HriMnvt'$ prudent some
changes of detail as to the condition
of general trade, yet the situation as a
whole is not decidedly different fnm
that previously reported.. At Chicago,
Milwaukee, Detroit, Indianapolis,
Memphis and Kansas City tho move
ment of merchandise has been active
and is increasing. This is true to some
extent also at Cincinnati. At St.
Paul, Miuneapolis, Duluthaud Daven
port business is fair, and the proepects
point to a
noon spring traok.
The chief improvement at the cities
first named appears to have liven in
dry goods. More favorable weather
and the regularity of transportation
are largely rcsousihle for it. On the
other hand, tho distribution of staples
from the larger Atlantic seaboard
cities has been smaller and is plainly
disappointing. At Boston the situa
tion makes observers there less hope
ful. Dry goods are in lighter demand,
and there is a tendency to mark up
Iirices, owing to labor troubles nnd
ligher wages, and to make delivery
contracts conditional on no lalsir
troubles. There is some difficulty in
maintaining the late advance in
woolen fabrics. Print cloths are dull
and lower, 0-t Iwing 3J(! Ichh 1 per
cent, per yard.
woou
Wool is less bnoyant, owing to the
higher wages paid operatives. Im
ports have depressed, the market, and
while prices are unchanged, doubt
has replaced confidence. At Philadel
phia business tuts not equaled ex
jiectatiotiH, and at Baltimore the
movement of goods South and West
does not Improve.
COAL.
There has been no fain in anthra
cite coal prices, notwithstanding the
much talked of coal road combination,
and quotations are from lftc to 2.V
lower per ton than ut a like date lost
year. There is no visible change In
iron or sUrl iu the direction of im
provement, notwithstanding expecta
tions at various centers of higher
iriccs soon. Petroleum hurt been
ligher, uud exports have increased.
'The lute speculative combination to
force a decline, has apparently accom
plished its purKise.
(JRAIS.
There is no special change in the
wheat market. lWeg declined dur
ing the early part of the week, but
have reacted since on firmer foreign
cables, improved exports and reports
of increased interior milling demand.
Indian com is weaker and lower
since the attempt to corner Out Febru
ary option, and hog products are
easier as well. Cotton is heavy ftnd
lower, spots closing Jo oft" as compared
with the close one week ago.
TUB INDUSTRIAL SITUATION
is no less involved, the frequency of
strikes and boycotta to enforce tho tie
wumto of organized pinpjoyun lieing
conspicuous and more numerous than
previously.

New York, February 19. Tho busi
