New "Xork, Doa 5. R. O. Dun & Ca'
weekly roview of trade says: On nearly all
the speculative markets thore is furions ex
citement, corners abound and artificial ad
vancei are foroed by powerful cliques, aided
by abundance of money, Hut prices check
tegitimnto buslnosi, industries are hesitating
and monetary stringency of many points

man, one of the largest dry goods houses,
whose BaleJ were $l'i,OJ0,(K)0 a yoar, illus
trates the prusiure wulcu has provallod in
the commercial money rrarkot, oven while
funds for speculative uses woro abundant.
This proesuru does not abue; if at some
points the market is easior, the reports more
comrao!y Indicate contiuuod or increased
At Denver collections are fair and money
In increased and'vharp demand; at Kansas
City collections aro dull and money close;
at St. Paul collections aro fairly satisfac
tory; at Omaha fair, with money oasierj
at Milwauueo the demand is urgent, the
tnarkot striugont, and collections somewhat
backward; at Cnlcago speculative demands
are increasing, and ineauwhiio calls from
the country do not abate; at Detroit busi
ness is somewhat qulec and the grain trade
requiring less than usual, but though money
is easier the ratos are 7 to 8 per cent.; at
Cincinnati banks have no money for out
siders ami the market is close at 0 to 7 per
cent. ; at C oveland deposits improve, b"
money Is still olim; at PnilalelpaU collec
tions aro somewhat Blow, heavy blocks of
paper await sales, and considerable New
York paper is being offered; at Boston
western paper isoilirel at 7 per cent, some
of it indorsed by banks, whilo the home de
mand Is large.
This pressure at many points, with great
abundance of funds in speculative uses, con
forms to estimates published minths ago of
the treasury's policy. Qrave uncertainties
In France and Germany render dependence
en further foreign supptiei undesirable. In
tho past week tho treasury has taken in
$1,000,000 more than it paid out The grow
ing disoussion of modos to lessen tho surplus
points to no assured end as yet, but causes
apprehension in some manufactures. The
dry goods trade is modorato, without im
provement in woolens. Considerable sales
of cassimeros at prioes only a little below
last year are reportod, and in overcoatings
prices ore considered low.
The boot and shoe trade is in good shape, I
but leather is dull and hides depressed. In '
groceries thero is a largo volume of busi
ness; oofltee'is nominal; tho sqgar trust has
advanced tho price of refined. A powerful
syndicate has cornered tiu and copper, and
to also oporatlng in tin and lead. Attempts
to rovivo the coke syndicate have failed,
and companies have concluded to attempt
o further advance in the price of coal for
December, tho demand falling oil with the
countermanding of some orders. Iron still
hesitates, though be3t grados are scarce.
Southern makers are bidding for New York
sod New England trade, and prices at Pitts- ,
burg tend to lower for all grades except
In bar iron there is a perceptible shrink- ,
ago of demand; nails are dull and lower and
stool rail buyers hold oil. Tho halting in
tho market for soourities continues, lie-
ported ditllculties in the Baltimore & Ohio '
settlement attract notice. Tho whoat'mar
kst has risen two cents and corn as muoh,
-with great excitement Oil and cotton have
been stronger, aud a boom in pork products
lifted prices, but has met a reaction In all ,
directions speculation is marked by that ex
cited activity wnioh' renders legitimate

The Turple Contest.
IxotAXAfoUB, Dec. A. Tne Turple con
test more uud more nbjorbs public atten
tion, to the exclusion of all other political
subject. In additiuu to the regular pro
tests fifed at Washington some time ago, of

It is learned that a supplementary protest,

in tho constitution which provides tbit no
person who may be a collector or a holdor
of public money shall bo eligible to ofllco

over, according to law, all sums for which
lie may be liable, and then charges that
Representative Harroll, of Franklin oounty,
and Crinson, of Scott county, both of whom
voted for Turplo, were ineligible under the
law to membership in the legislature, as
both had held oounty offices aud ha 1 not
paid over all sums for which they we're

Is considerable agitation among Democrats

erful corporations of the state. It. tran
