A ... Stock Market
"I wonder what brings old Eyre
Into tbe Exchange ?" remarked
one of the shellbacks in the lobby
this morning, as he saw tbo astute
Cjlouel paciug tbe center for tbe
first time in three weeks. "Some
thing uuusual must have happened
or you would not have ventured
out. The Colonel has lived the life
of a recluse, almost, sinco those
telegraph operators over in the
Western Union building rigged
that magnifying machine and reaS
all of his private memorandums. I
guess there's fun ahead and it'll be
money in my list to watch Eyre
aud see what effect his presence has
on the stock market." So saying,
the lobbyist subsided into his shirt
collar and scrutinized the
manunivres of the Colonel
as closely as a cat would
the movements of a mouse.
The market was dull and slightly
off color at the early session of the
Pacific and few among those who
walked over to the San Fraucisco
Board anticipated that things would
improve. The Post, like the old
shellback in tbe lobby, will now
watch the movements of Colonel
Eyre. With the exception of Mex
ican and Grand Prize there was no
improvement in the first few stocks
that were called, Ophir included.
Small dealers, who could, sought to
sell the latter stock, and it seemed
impossible to get the price above
$541. Smiley and other inveterate
"chippers" looked as if a few buyer
Aye, judiciously put out, would
swell their bank accounts. Five
minutes later, when a disconsolate
feeling ran through the ranks of
the true believers, Colonel Eyre
was seen to look Sandy Austin and
Hale squarely in the face and lay
three lingers cautiously on his right
cheek. This was evidently a pre
concerted signal, for Ophir was
called and Austin and Hale, tossing
the stock from one to the other,
held the price at 855. Meanwhile
COLONEL EYRE DREW HIS WATCII
From its pocket and coughed
slightly. This was, of course, a
hint to Gurnett, who, acting as
' sKlt.lv.sber for Austin ami Hale,
bagged t»U thestcck which was of
fered by the other brokers. Then,
to the astonishment of the lookers
on, the price began to rise. Austin
and Hale continued to drive the
stock of other brokers into Gur
nett's hands as efficiently as a shep
herd does a flock of sheep into an
enclosure. Collar after dollar the
market advanced, until, at the
very close, Ophir stood squarely at
SSS, the highest point yet reached.
The total sales of the session were
2,700 shares, an intense excitement
JUST BEFORE THE REGULAR BOARD
Was called to order a crowd of ex
cited brokers collected iv the cen
ter, anil it was plain from their ac
tions that Ophir would touch $60.
The Chairman finally gave the sig
nal; there was a momentary lull,
then with it roar the excited
knights of the order book, obeying
the mandates of their customers,
took possession of the market.
Scott bought the tirst lot ct $00.
The power of the house of Glazier
& Co. manifested itself as a lifting
agency through Erlloh, who bid
tho stock up to $02. Herman and
Walker did a large buying busi
ness. Fitch paid 63J seller 10 to
Shotwell for a quantity. Thehigh
est aud culminating price was $bl.
Notwithstanding the marked rise,
fully $9 from the price oi' the early
morning, the sales were light, and
the stock could only be obtained iv
small lots. The lever t:.en seized
nfiwiinrf] wliioli touched ShS. Cal
ifornia rose to $34. Consolidated
Virginia, Best & Beleber, Gould it
Curry, Savage aud Hale & Nor
cross did not respoud to the rise iv
Ophir uud Mexican to n great ex
tent, but Union was strong at $7,
and Sierra Nevada better ut $4;.
There was Improvement, usa rule,
lit the balance of thu market, but,
as before stated, the excitement
was confined to Ophir aud its im
mediate neighbors.—,V. F. J'usl,
The Battle of the Ganger
Tbe Denver Newt gives un ac
count of a lively coutest between
the Denver ami Rio Grande Kail
road (narrow gauge) ami the Atehi
son, Topeka uud Santa Ke (broad
gauge) for tlio possession of tbe
Raton pasj, on the southern boun
dary of Colorado. This pass was
long ignored by the Denver aud
Rio Grande people, it having been
their iuteutiou to enter New Mex
ico via the Rio Grande valley, ou
the west side of the Spanish ranee.
They appear to have changed their
plan by crossing tbe Raton spur
of tbe main range of the Rocky
mountains. The road will continue
to skirt the eastern base of tbe
latter until some point in Cen
tral New Mexico is readied,
when it will doubtless cross to
tbo westward and strike tbe
Rio Grande valley nt Albuquerque,
or some point iv that vicinity. As
the two roads have (he same desti
nation, El Paso, Mexico, there will
doubtless be something of a race
between them through New Mexi
co for tbe occupancy of the most fa
vorable location. At any rate the
extensive Maxwell grant in New
Mexico will, by this change of
plan, be made valuable as soon as
the railroad passes through it. It.
once sold for 50.D00.000, but lapsed
into comparative worthlessuess
under the management of an Eng
lish company. The News of the oth
says: Tho danger of procrastina
tion was strikingly illustrated in
the recent railway movement in
the Raton mountains. The Atch
ison, Topeka & Santa Ke and the
Denver and Itio Grande people
have been watching each other for
Borne time. The latter had determ
ined upon its route over the summit
of thu liaton. Last Tuesday a
force was sent forward on the reg
ular train to Xl Moro to occupy the
ground anil begin work. It rested
attheendof the track overnight,
intending to move out in the morn
ing. Later tho Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Ke Company chartered
a special train over tbe'Rio Grande
road and sent forward its grading
force. This readied Xl Moro about
eleven o'cleck last night. With
"ii* restiug the force pushed for
ward up the Raton sixteen miles,
MM at daylight the next morning
picks aud shovels were at work ou
tbe disputed ground, about the
same time tbe Rio Grande hoys
were getting out of their blankets
sixteen miles awny. The tunnel
upon which the wide gauge road
lias begun work will be about li.OOO
feet long. What tho Rio Grande
will do is not yet auuounced.
I, rooably the two roads will pass
through a double-barreled tunnel
In the same paes. The Trinidad
people side with the Atchison, Tc
peka and Santa Fe folks, ottering
their moral support and their shot
guns, with men to use them, if
force shall be necessary to hold tbe
ground. Southern Colorado is fa
mous for belligerent railway claims
to prior right of way, and they are
always ready to fight. Perhaps
this last 19 a stupendous bluff at
the Denver and Rio Grande.
A Cartons Wager
A Delauo correspondent of the
ICeru county (Jazetle tells the fol
A curious wager was made and
won here last week by a loquacious
individual sailiur undtr the sobri
quet of "Murphue." Last Monday
evening, while at the Delauo
House, he offered to $50 that
he could maintain uu uninterrupt
ed (low of native "brogue" for
twenty-four consecutive hours,
with no other stimulant than his
usual beverage—Delauo bug juice —
wiiich was to be furnished in un
stinted quantities, on his demand,
at the loser's expense. On beltigj
taken up by a party doubting his
powers of endurance, and prelimi
naries being completed, "Murphue"
mounted tho Stump, and
choosing for his topic the
Kearney movement, sailed iv
with a How of words that would
have put thesubject of his harangue
to shame could he have been pres
ent. The start was made at 8:30
A. M. At 10:30 P. M. tiie demijohn
had gone down cellar three times
to cateli breath, aud no visible de
crease in Murpbue'sstock of words.
At-:30 Wednesday morning Ke.ir
ney had been disposed of, together
with the contents of another demi
john. An argument in favor of tin
Chinese was then taken up. Mur
pbue's articulation at 7 a. M. be
came rather husky und the thread
of his argument rather difficult to
follow, but he kept manfully at it,
and betting among the numbers
who had assembled in the room ran
high, one bet ol §70 being of
fered and accepted that Murphue
would not hold out, ho having
drank during the time of his deliv
ery fully four gallons nf whisky.
When tbe time was at lust called
and the wager declared fairly won,
Murphues powers of endurance were
totally exhausted. He fell from his
cramped position on the chair and
rolled over under the billiard table,
a spongy mass of flesh and whisky;
but, strange to sny, his unconscious
lipsiu this semi-comatose condition,
still continued moving, notwith
standing the efforts made by Dr.
Stuart for his relief. It is, indeed,
sad to contemplate Ihe possibility
of a man's talking himself to death.
One of Lincoln's
" Oue day," said Mr. Lincoln, "I
got into a ("it of musing in my room,
and stood resting my elbows on the
bureau. Looking into tho glass, it|
struck me what an awfully ugly

Mr. Lincoln, what's the matter.
What have 1 done." 'Well, I made
an oath that if I ever saw a man
uglier than I am, I'd shoot him on
the epot. You are uglier, sure; so
make ready to die.' 'Mr. Lincoln,
do you really think 1 am uglier
