Away from the Bniis.
Xew York, Dec. 13.-TIie scene at the
opening of the stock exchange this morn
ing was one of the wildest excitement e er
witnessed there. For several minutes the
entire floor was crowded with knots of
brokers surging from one side to the other,
all seemingly bent on selling stocks. Prices
diopped with such rapidity as to demoral
i.e brokers who had buying orders. Little
heed was paid to fractions in making
The greatest crowd was in "Readin
which sold down 4 1-2; Richmond & "Wed
Point declined 8; J locking A alley 0 7-8, and
Western Lmon 2 1-8.
It is understood the movement is the re
sult of a big combination airainst the bulls,
which engineered the late large advance
throughout the list. Trust companies con
trolled by friends of boar leaders are said to
have started the break by calling in all
loans' in Reading.
Near 11 the market rccoveicd pait of the
decline. I he maiket is still a little fever
ish but a little better than the lowest prices.
The general feeling seems to be that the
worst is over, and that the panic which
seemed imminent at noon is bridged over.
Sales up to now were 037,000 shares,
the largest ever known in the history of
the exchange, the market touching the
lowest point seen for months. Some stocks
dropped 2 to o points in the last few min
utes. All brokers have orders to sell with

vate settlements on all slock exchange con-
1 :30 p. m. AVild rumors are afloat re
garding the banks, but they can be traced
to no foundation. A representative of the
Associated Press lust visited several of the
prominent banking institutions and has
been assured that there is no trouble in
any of the associated banks; tome few
small biokers firms have been caught on
thu wrong side of the market but have
made private settlements and no further
suspensions are anticipated. At this writ
ing the maiket is. at its lowest and shows a
decline of from 4 to 15 points all along the
line. It recoveied 1 to h and is selling oft
again. Money has advanced to 50 per
1:45 p. m. A piominent broker says
that the break on prices is the result
of the very conseivative policy adopted
by the banks for the past week
or moie in regaid to loaus. They have
been charging G to 7 per cent on good
stocks and tioni 8 to 10 per cent on spe
dallies. Also that Lrokei, being unwil
ling to carry stocks at these tiguies, called
on holders for moie margins. This brought
out large selling oideis, and as pi ices fell
more stock came out, resulting today in
almost a panic.

Ovur one million shares was the total
business in stocks Unlay, which has never
bt'en equaled in the history of the ex
change and but seldom approached. The
panicy feeling developed in some of the
low priced -hares in the past two dns
spread to the.morc substantial stocks, and
the pressure to sell exceeded anythiog ever
seen iu the board room. The bears began
the attack at the opening, but orders to sell
for both sides of the account were over

get out demands for more. Margins re
mained unanswered and closing nut shI

One of the houses reported in trouble in
Wall street today, and whose suspension
was expected this afternoon, received as
sistance from friends. By unloading a lot
of high-prices stock they were enabled to
tide over. After "i o clock the market be
sran to rally, and when the time for deliv
ery of stocks, 2:15 p. m., had passed with
out am' one of the several houses known to
be in a shaky condition, suspending, the
confidence began to return and many of the
brokers bought stock ior.their own account,
believing the decline to be at an end. The
heavy bears, too, remembered that in for
mer panics no money could be gained from
a suspended house, and began to cover
f reel', helping with other causes to make
an upward reaction of 7 per cent in the ex-
tieme cases from the lowest prices of the
in regard to tne, excitement m stocks to
day the Tribune will say tomorrow: The
most powertul ta".tor in the dojhne was
the continued stringency in- the money
market. Although rather curiously, the
highest for call lo-ms was not made" until
the last hour when the rally was under
way. The highest rate at which loans
were made was 1-2 per cent, a day with
interest, which is equivalent tb 183
per cent, a year. Jay Gould ex
pressed his opinion in "the afternoon
to a Tribune reporter who asked his views
about financial affairs: It seems to me
that the inter-state commerce bill is the
chief cause of the high rates of money; it
has aroused a good deal of distrust every
where, for certainly lenders would hardly
know where they stood if the bill should
become a law. There seems to be danger
that it will be passed. If we can believe
what people say about it the west is full of
the matter, and I am told that
many western men believe that if
the bill succeeds it would result
I think in sending through traffic down
the Mississippi and from the northwest to
Canadian roads it would be a severe blow
to the western and trunk line roads, while
it would build up the lines in Canada at
their expense. As to the extreme rates
paid for the use of money by brokers, the
general opinion of bank officers is that to
a large extent they are artificial.
The Tribune says: The opportunity for
all this wreckage of values was given by
thc rash operations of a few speculators in
Reading and the southwestems which for
a time were wildly described "as possessing
growing capacities of a fungous character.
We have not predicted tight money; but
first of all we call attention to the fact that
the monetary situation was such that any
inclination of capitalists with the aid of a
few batiks could make stringency of it.
The stringenc' has come and today did
its work in wrecking values, and
it will not be a difficult matter to name the
banking institutions and trust companies
which, through willing or stupid corpora
tions, have lent themselves to stock
jobbing operations. Outside of Reading
and southern wildcats a more ridiculous
panic than that of today at the stock ex
change was never witnessed. The busi
ness of the country is going along smooth
ly and the prospects were never
brighter. There is no change in the
situation which does not make good stocks
moie valuable than they were two weeks
ago. Opinions varj' as to the immediate
repeal of the shaking up and shaking out
of the stocks, but it seems probable that a
little time will be required to clear away the
wreck and complete their stock and liqui
date their measu-es.

Guilty, as Charged.
Xcw Yoniv, Dec. 15. McQuade was
found guilty on the first ballot.
Col. Fellows' address occupied four and
a half hours in delivery, and was listened
to with close attention througout. At 5
o'clock Recorder Smyth began his charge
to the jury. lie reviewed the case at great
length, instructing the jury with regard to
their powers and duties; stated the law re
quiring corroboration of the testimony of
accomplices; pronouueed the testimony of
the servant girl, Katie Metz, as direct, un
shaken and worthy of having much weight;
said that it was in the nature of things that
crime should be perpetrated in secret and
that, therefore, the testimony of accompli
ces was often necessary. It was for the
jury to decide whether Duily's and Full
gralf's testimony had been corroborated.
It was nearly 7 o'clock when the rc
couler ceased speaking. Outside opinion
appeared to be that the recorder's charge
was a very strong one and tended much to
brush away cobweb doubts about the guilt
of the prisoner.
The roll was called again and each jur.T
answered guilty a his name was called.

Washington. Dec. 15.
bills introduced in the senate and referred
was one bv Mr. Yance, to repeal chapter
27 of the acts of 1SS3, relating to. civil ser
vice. Mr. YanWyck offered a resolution call
ing on the secretary of war for information
as to how the Missouri river commission
apportioned certain money appropriated in
the river and harbor bill for the improve
ment of the Missouri river at Omaha and
other poiats in Nebraska and Iowa. The
resolution gave rise to considerable discus
sion. The report was finally ordered print
ed. Mr. Cullom gave notice that he would
call it up next Tuesday, but it was soon
again taken up and further discussed.
"Before coming to a. vote on the resolution
the hour of 2 arrived, when unfinished bus
iness (bill repealing tenure of office act)
came up, and was allowed to stand over
Mr. Cullom presented the conference re
port on the interstate commerce bill and
asked that it be printed, and suggested that
he would next Monday ask the seuate to
take it up when, if debate was desired it
might be postponed. He hoped, however,
that no senator would insist on a motiou to
postpone it until after the holidays.
Mr. Hoar said the matter w"as one in
which his constituents had a very deep in
terest: it required deep study not only ou
the part of those who had to vote on it,
but on the part of the business interests of
the country, and he intimated as the
Christmas holidays would probably begin
next week, the reiort should go over until
after the holidays.
Mr. Cullom did not know that the senate
would have any holidays; all he desired
now was to have the report laid on the
table and printed he would call it up
early next week and then if there was a
desire to discuss it it might go oer, but
he preferred not to agree to that at this
time. He read a statement explauator) of
Mr. Piatt, one of the conferees, said he
had withheld his signature from the re
port. He might perhaps (although with
great reluctance) have consented to all the
recommendations of the report but one,
that was the surrender of the provisions of
the senate bill directing the commissioners
to investigate the system of pooling be
tween railroads, and the substituting for
that provision, the absolute prohibition of
pooling. He thought the public prejudice
against pooliug by railroads was largely
the result of misapprehension as to the na
ture and effect of the pooling system on the
general welfare of the country. All inter
state traffic done by railroads was transact
ed today under pooling arrangements, and
the absolute prohibition of such svstem
might work grtat evils.
Mr. Cullom said the object of the bill, as
reported, was to bring alwut the stability
of rates which the railroads themselves
were trying to bring about under the sy-
tern of pooling. He believed that the ap
prehension expressed by the senator from
Connecticut would prove to be unfounded.
After further discussion the report was
ordered printed and Mr. Cullom gave no
tice that he would call it up next Tuesday
and if the senate desired to ditcus it at
length it might go over until after the holi
days, but he was very anxious to secure
final action at this session, particularly a-
the supreme court had ruled recently that
it was the province of congress to legMatr
on the subject.
Mr. Phttt then called up the icsolution
that executive nominations Ikj hereafter
considered in opeu session except when
otherwise ordered by a vote of the senate.
Mr. Morrill moved to amend by striking
out the words "reciprocity treaties, --o-called."
He had no objection to that
Mr. Piatt characterized the amendment
as a case of "Greeks bearing gifts "
Mr. Hoar moved to lay the resolution on
he table. Agreed to ayes 33, nays 21.
