A Badly Bulled Market.
San JFraxcisco, Dec. 4. At today's
session of the stock exchange the bulls
succeeded in completely capturing the
market and a sharp, heavy advance too!;
place all along the line. Transactions were
unusually heavy. Consolidated Virginia
which closed at noon "yesterday at 3!) and
at the afternoon at 46, opened this morning
at 33 and in a few minutes jumped under
heavy sales to oj, closing at G1..10. iest &
Belcher opened at 25, 2 better than yester
day, and closed at 24. Gould & Curry,
one of the favorites, opening under big
sales at 13, being 3.10 better than yester
day; steadily advanced to 14; closed 13.2o.
In Oppir transactions were also large,
opened at 28, jumped to 31, climbed to 33;
fell oil to 32, advanced to 35, and finally
closed at 34.50, being an advance of (J.50
over last night. The bears, notwithstand
ing every effort, were powerless to arrest
the upgo. Potosia closed at 14.23, an ad
vance ot 3.87 1-2 over yesterday. Savage
at 18.50 showed an advance of 2.50. Sierra
Nevada closed at 10, being 8.50 better than
yesterday. Yellow Jacket climbed steadi
ly from 9 to 14.50 and closed strong.
New York, Dec. 4 The Mail and Ex
press says: The market for mining shares
this morning opened in the same wild
fashion and tlirre was further loading and
unloading of various shares, good, bad and
indifferent. Some of the slocks that
caused a ripple were old and well-known
in their day, but have been quietly slum
bering for years on the retired list. Among
those again trotted out today were such
shares as Gold, Pacer and Duraugo, and
they commanded as much attention as an'
other. The feature of the morning was
the heavy trading in Silver Cliff, which
opened around 1-8 and shot up to GO before
Just what caused this remarkable spurt
was not learned, in fact no one cared to
know; it was sufficient to know that Silver
Cliff was on its leirs and traveling at a
break neck speed to cause v, ild excitement
and a scramble for certificates. Through
out the forenoon the general list showed
considerable strength. Old trunks and
chests which have for years afforded a rest
ing place for all kinds of missing securi
ties are being emptied of their contents and
as these are scattered over ever- portion of
the country it is not improbable that the
number vol to be thrown upon the market
will result in extending the boom for some
I weeks at least.
Chloroformed and llobbed.
Mimvat'kiik, Dec. 4. A special to the
Evening Wisconsin from Neenah saj's, this
morning at 3 o'clock two burglars entered
thehoiueof E. M.IIulce.wholives just out
side the city. They chloroformed him and
proceeded to ransack the houe, but Kulce
awoke and had a battle with them. In the
struggle he pulled the mask oil of one of
his assailants and identified him as a tramp
who had hung around the house for a
week past, llulce was alone in the house,
and the burglars got about $50 in money;
afterwards they set fire to the house, burn
ing it to the ground. Hulcc narrowly es
caped burning to death; he crawled out
and laid down in the snow dazed from the
effects of the chloroform. His hands were
badly frozen; he laid in the snow about
half an hour when was picked up and car
ried to a neighbor's house, lloue and
contents were worth $10,000; insured.
Hulee was quite wealthy. The burglars
have a good start and probably will not
Natural Gas Mishap.
Prrisnuuc, Pa.. Dec. 4. The shortage
in the gas occav'onea by the accident to tne
Chartiers company this morning did not
result in any serious loss to the manufac
turers beyond the suspension of work in
the mills and factories for three hours.
The fact is remarkable that two similar ac
cidents should happen at the same minute
fifty miles apart, and the company are con
gratulating themselves that it occurred on
Saturday morning v.hen the inconvenience
to its mill customers was comparatively
little to what it would have been had it
happened on an- othsr day.
A Temporary Pool Arrangement.
Chicago. Dee. 4. The various roado
interested in Pacific coast passenger traffic
have at last succeeded in forming a tem
porary pool on such business from the Pa
cific coast to through eastern point and
the opinion is expressed that the new agree
ment will prove so satisfactory that at it
expiration no further difficulty will lx
found in bringing about a permanent pool
iug arrangement that will prevent further
cutting of rates. The priucipal features
of the agreement are that no street com
missions shall be paid in San Francisco.
General agents of eastern lines are allowed
to pay a commission of $2 on each tick.t
via Chicago and $2 50 via St. Louis.
A Peculiar Case.

Gen. John B. Clark, clerk of the houe
of rcpresuntath es, h:iS completed and
caused to to? printed an unofficial list . of
members olhc house for the 50th con
gress and classifies them as 10S Democrats,
1.12 Republicans, 4 Independents, with one
vacancy in Rhode Island to be rilled, prob
ably by a Republican: l'Jo of them are old
members, being ten more than the number
of old members in the present congress. Of
the old members, one hundred are Demo
crats and ninety-five Republicans. If the
Independents divide as they are expected
to, equally between the two sides it will
give the Democrats a majority of fourteen
in a full house.
The president is suffering from a slight
attack of rheumatism which has kept him
indoors for several days, but has not inter
fered with his work. Por the past two
days he has kept to his home in the hope
that its even temperature would effect an

facts did not leak out until late thK after

Beiilin, Dec. 4. Debate ou the govern
ment's bill for the renewal of the military
septennate, or fixing of army estimates
for a period of seven years, as resumed
in the reichstag today. The present sep
tennate not expiring until 1S8S, and the
government's desire being evidently to take
advantage of the European crisis to secure
an increase in the peace etlective force.
All opposition parties are expected to dis
cover the attitude towards the proposed
measure duriug the present debate, which
is on the first reading, llerr Windthorst,
leader of tho clerical party, declined, how
ever, to explicitly commit himself and fol

known that they preferred having army
estimates made for three years however,
instead of seven as proposed by the gov
ernment. Intense interest was manifested in today b
session ot the rcicustajr when it became
known that Dr. "Windehorst, the clercial
leader, would declare the policy of the
center, and that Gen. Von Molke was pre
pared to'speak. Dr. "Windehorst's speech
was cautious and diplomatic and left a
doubt as to what the Ultimate vote of the
centre would be. lie opened by suiting
that he would not prejudice the position ol
his party in subsequent divisions on the
military septennate bill by a positive prom
ise as to now the centre would vote.
The final decision of that party would be
known only when a division should be
taken on the last reading. He did not be
lieve it possible to meet the government's
desire to dispose of the incisure before
Christmas because he saw the necessity of
a detailed examination of the bill, nor did
there seem to be any special reason for an
urgency arising from the imminence of war
The alliance with Austria constituted a
present and lasting guarantee of peace in
Europe. The centre could not admit the
septennate as a permanent principle, it
would prefer to consider a triennel regula

The centre was desirous of giving ma

The preamble to the bill showed
plainly hov far Germany wju
behind other tates in the strength of h?r
army and the taxation of her people. The
French, for instance, paid about double the
sum paid by the German people, ami an
alliance with France would S3gure the
peace of Europe. But. he said, such an
alliance is impossible while public opinion
in France i:npetuoily demands the sur
render of two provinces which arc strongly
determined never to give up. (Cheers).
