Ah Exhaust.ng Resume of An Interesting
Subject, by a Bull Who Was
Ni.v YoiiK, August 1. The ,sii to-day
Miya: The plieuomuual advance of Wall
btieet prices Lit coutiiiued for unotlicr
week, til! ut lust Nome of the bit: bulU
themselves cry out: ".Slop, that'll do;
Kt i:s have little rest." A large aruouut
of luti' stock was sold on Friday and
Saturday, but the speculative body took
Has jiluerly as a hot cake. It is averred
that C. J. Osborn, for instance, ha.s sold
out all his holdings and gou ou a yacht
ing trip, llut the market did uot show it
it all, though Ohorni: was one of tho
originators of the July boom, and was
supposed lo hold, will) Kd. Chapia and
his eii.-t'jiin.-rs, the largest amount of
stocks recently held in any o:jo ollice.
V. K. Cireeii looked for a reaction f r
fully a vvvek, but did nut yet it. The
odice of Mesrs. Souther i Willard have
bet a sel.ing openly and freely. Jlut the
unrket absorbed every tiling, and showed
oniy a small s tl)ack at the close of Imsi-ncs-t

of affairs?'' It stems that everybody
thinks if ho oniy cuu! 1 lind out tho exact
f-ursf of the last three weeks' niuvv.
iiieiit he would kaow wbat to do. Vet it
is probably Lot so. It i trie tlm ihe
advance was phe.iotiiei.-Jl. bul that is h'ji
a pfof it must stop riht iiei'e. iju the
ottier hand, there is always the chapter of
accldciiU to taken into cou.-ideratiou.
S . out-thin,; iniiiht happen at any moment
and make tho market lose in three hours
what it had gained in three weeks. Hut
so lotiK as money remains as cheap as It
in ail over the world, and the investors
and speculators rem tin so tired of i lle
iieus and low rat s of interest as they are,
the movement can easily coutiuuu of its
own loice. At all events, it wuuld boab
Mtrd to attribute it to mere manipulation.
It was certainly -tarted by a few strong
manipulators, but it r.m out ot tiieir
hands. No combination oi them
could . have the means to accomp.ish
what has been accomplished. It is easy
ciiout'h to start a buymi; movement under
a Ivautatjeous clrcuiiL'-tauces, but it is by
no in ".ins easy to ke-ep it up as it has
been kept up in this case in spito of fail
ures and depressions in trade all around.
Summed up, the elements which made a
success of this movement are these : The
panics, coming after a steady liquidation
of three years, brought prices to a level
below which most ol tho securities could
hardly jro as Ions as there was anybody
n illiim to hold the control of properties
they represented. The failures, terrible,
unexpected and criminal though some
of tuom were, came all in one lump,
and a week or two s talk ami meditation,
led to tho conclusion that the worst was
over. The banks, by contracting their
loans and discounts, strengthened their
p isltion to such an rxtent'that the sur
plus imperatively demanded an outlet.
Mock collaterals, having been properly
weeded during the panic, had now be
came the safest securities to loan on, and
tho banks began to loan money to Wall
street speculators in prelerence to mer
chants and manufactures, whose notes
cannot be realized on call. Tho short
interest was Immense and the bears all
had plenty of money which they had ac
ciunu ated during the long process of
liquidation. They consequently did not
rush to cover all at once, but went In one
by one, and that only afier having
stood in tho breach awaiting
another opportunity, This op
portunity did not come, and most of
them were compelled to buy In their
stock alter au advance of ten to llltecu
per cent, had been made. A few of the
strongest bears remain short yet, but
there are not many of them, and those
who attempt a new campaign start in
lightly. All this gave both money iiud
courage to tho bulls, and put them in a
position to begiu work again should the
market react a few points. Meanwhile
investors at home, as well as abroad,
who had held slocks during the long pe
riod ol depression, saw tin opportunity
to average their holdings. Seven per
cent stocks selling at llfty and sixty a
share looked very cheap to tliom,
and they bought some. Merchants
ami manufacturers, too, who had
been unable for some time past to
make money In their legitimate
business, had to look for some way to
make up the dellciency, and began buy
ing stocks when they considered them
unusually cheap. Securities bought by
these two classes of men went out of tho
street, aud reduced the volume available
lor daily speculation. In additiliou to
ell tho inlluiiiieos, come the prospects of
inagnillccnt crops, which serve always as
a great bull argument in Wall street at
this time of the year. True that circum
stances have considerably changed of late,
and that we can no longer sell all tho
crops wo raise unless wo offer them
cheap, Uut of this Wall street has not
thought yet. It thinks that breadstuffs
and provisions have to be sold, and con
Bcqueully transported, and does uot care
yet to llnd out whether the farruur
alone is likely to bear all tin
loss, or whether tho ralloads will
have to share It with him. It is utlcrl)
Impossible to foresee now whether the
present Wall street movement has
reached It climax, but It would seem
really desirable that things should Dot be
pushed too far aud that the pot should
le kept merely simmering during August
and September. Thoo it could b sot
lustily bolNng again by tho toglufli'ng ct
October, and hent going tho tret ot tho
year. Among other good reasons lot J
such policy Is tlw departure of
a large number of leading operators
on yachting and pleasure trips; and ths
chances are that we are going to have
some summer weather at la.-t, which will
drive ev u minor speculators away. I
Atnoug the special fentures of tho mar
ket at the close of tho week waa sudden
jump in tho prices of Western L'utou and
l'aciilc Mail, both of which had remained
rather sluggish during tho general ad
vance; but ou Saturday Western Union
was run up to Ot 1-i and l'aclflc Mail to
id. It Is said that Western Union Is ono
of the few st.Kks on which thero is still
a cousiderab o short Interest left, aud
that Jay Gould proposes to take his usual
paternal care of it. It is also argued that
a.s a steady dividend payer tho stock
is selling much lower than the prices of
other simi ar securities warrant. As far
as l'aciilc Mail is concerned, ono of its
ollicers said upou seeing the advance in
tho price of its stocks, "t )ur turn had to
come some clay. 1'eoplo have been too
busy ot lato working tiio general list,
but we dott want any working, wo stand
upon our merits, wu have already paid
two quarterly dividends and have money
for a year's dividend ou hand. Wo are
loaning out millions of surp us
money right here In tho street.
All talk ab jut the work upon the l'aiiauia
canal being likely to be brought to a
stand still for lack of capital is nonsense.
They will Mud all tho money they waut
in Kuropo, but even if they do not It
can not make much oifier. noo to us. The
business wo get irom ihcm is a very
small portion ol the total of our trallic.
The cessation of war b. tucett Chill aud

trallic. We arc doing now iu one month

Chicago speculators begin apparently
to understand that a boom In the New
Yolk stock market does not necessarily
UKan txtoriional prices for grain and
provisions. They have L'iven up all their
ab-urd talk about t.he cheapness of wheat
at one dollar a bushel, and do not seem
disposed to bull it now at eighty-three
cents. The market looked quite sick at
the close of tho w eek, and uoitody seem
ed V be anvious t buy grain, except to
get his prollts on short contracts, as has
boon predicted over and over again iu
this column, lixcept at times when tl.J

basis of grain l!u tuitions at the close of

Cil wn.i'.sioN, W. Ya , August 4. One
of the most remarkable lights iu the his
tory of sporting, occurred at Coal Val
ley, twelve miles north of here, Saturday
night. It was a light for $300 a side, be
tween a wild cat, or Mountain l.yux,
weighing twenty-two pounds, and three
bull dogs. At live o'clock time was
called, aud the cat and a dog Wtro placed
ou opposite sides of the pit. Tho
cat was fastened by a chain to prevent
it- . scape. The dog sprang toward tho
cat. Tho latter slipped aside and alighted
on the dog's !uck. Tho light grew turi
ous. Tlie dog rolled over and over, but
was unable to disiodge the cat. Finally
ho secured a bold of iho feline's leg.
T he cat backed the dog into a corner and
tore its leg loose. Tho dog caught the
cat on the left -boulder. Tho cat twisted
its head around aud catching
the dog by the back of the uejii
began to tear the ilesh. In two minutes
the dog was dead, Th; round lasted
eleven minutes. A dog of celebrity was
next liitrodu;d into tho pit. The light
was fuily a.s terrilio as the ilrst, but at
the end of seven minutes the second djg
was dead. A Charleston sport had a
dug which he offered to wag'-r -Sl'.'O tho
cat could uot kill in liiteen minutes. The
cat, after tho most furious tight of tho
day, killed his third antagonist in thir
tcu minutes. O.io thousand persons
witnessed tho light.

Progress of the Work of Exhuruins' the
Wasiii.su ion, D. C, August 4. Iu the
vicinity of Third street and Pennsylvania
avenue this morning were thousands of
people gathered, making Inquiries and
visiting the wreck of the Uuited States
Hotel. The llreineu and a volunteer force
continued the work of removing the
debris all night, aud are still at It. Fol
lowing is a list of those who have been
removed from the .ruins up to this writ
ing: Mrs. lleldon, wife of the proprietor;
Fruest "Snooks," a little white boy,
eleven years old; Harriot and Anna
Dickson aud Chas. Whitney, co ored
servants. It is supposed that Solomon
Wilson, Mrs. Annie Fletcher aud Henry
Hall, a:l colored, aro still in the ruins.
It Is said that Wilson was seen to leave
the building just before It fell, which, If
correct, leaves only Mrs. Fletcher aud
Henry Hall still imprisoned.
A force of workmen engaged in clear
ing away the debris this morning discov
ered the locality where Mrs. Addie
Fletcher was l)lng ami alter several
hours' labor, succeeded in reaching her;
but when taken from tho ruins, lile was
extinct. F,very effort Is being made to
llnd tho body of Henry Hall, who Is sup
posed to be the only remaining victim.
Some persons are strong In tho convic
tion, however, that thero will be others
found before tho search Is concluded.

Clkvkianh, (.)., Angust 4. Maud
S. surprised everybody Saturday
by beating the wonderful timo of 2:10
made byJay-F.yc-Soc Friday at Providence,
hhe made the mile circuit Saturday after
noon without skip or break In 2:0a 8-1.
When tho report reached this city that Jay-Kye-See
had lowered the Maud S. record by
a quarter of a second the greatest Interest
was manifested iu sporting circles as to
tho ability of the little maro to beat It,
aud when slw rounded tho hoine-stretch
In grand style the excitement was intense.
The wonuerful performance Is the gen
eral topic of conversation. It
having been stated tint Maad S.
would trot a fast mile and prob
ably endeavor to lower her record, fully
5,'.-'J0 people weio present at the race
track to witness tho event; but they had
no Idea ot tho rare treat that was In
store for them. Very few persons be
lieved that the driver would endeavor to
beat tho timo made by Jay-Eye-Sec Fri
day, and consequently but few bets Were
offered. The principal bet was made be
tween Captain Stone, her former owner,
and Mr. Lautorheck, a well-known fan
cier, li ar, the driver, broug&t Maud oa
the track and exercised her lrequeutly be
tween !n ats of other races, l'.y four
o'clock she was in line form aud condi
tion, and President Edwards announced
that Maud S. w ould then bo driven a fast
iniie for th amusement of the audience.
Tho pretty little thing watched the weigh
ing ol the driver and other preliminaries
with apparent iuterestand wUen tho word
was given to go, she gathered herself for
a de-pcrate effort, and before reachlug
Hi: first quarter had settled herself Into a
1' :''.'.. gait and pa-sed it iu tnlity-two sec
onds. Tho half was made iu 1 :04 still
maintaining the rapid pace. The third
quarter was a triile slower, but Alter
rounding into the homestretch her speed
was t rriiic. With her head stretched for
ward and her eyes llashiugshe shot under
tho w ire like a rocket having completed
the circuit iu t!:0'j;M, maintaining her
reputation of " uueen."
Iu order to fu iy appreciate tho great
victorv of tho little nure over timo aud
space, it mu.-t be said that from tho start
to tho finish the whip never touched her
"lossy coat, aud it appeared at one time
that a litt.e uraiug ou the part of her
driver would t '.vc maintained to the
tlose the fit .vhich she started. When
a few momeiiis later the ligures, 2:0'J S-i
wero displayed from the judges' stand, a
shout that shook tho grand suina went
up from tho delighted audience, aud tho
excitement was intense. Enthusiastic
horse fanciers aro claiming that this is
not tho limit to the niaro's abilities, aud
predict she will yet reduce the ligures to
not far from two minutes. Tho time at
tho three-fourths post was 1 :00 o-l.
Nkw Yuuk, August 4. The long
looked for single scull race be.
tweeu Wallace lloss, of Now Lruuswlck,
and Johu Teenier, of Pittsburgh, came off
Saturday before a very largo assemblage
at oak Point, resulting in au easy victory
for Teenier by a clear length, iu :U min
utes aud 32 seconds.
At 0:35 p. m. tho men wero ordered to
their stations. Teenier was the llrst to
put his boat in tho water, lloss came
out live minutes afterward, lioth men
appeared in splendid condition. The
betting at this point was 100 to SSO on
Teenier. Tho Pittsburgh delegation forced
tho odds up to this point. Hoss almost
anticipated the starting point, aud at
once drew away with a twenty-eight
stroke. Teenier started off at a iivelier
rate, making thirty strokes to the minute.
De-pito this, Koss gradually drew away
and in half a minute showed a lead of
half a length. There was no semblance
of spurting by cither rower, but lloss
further increased his lead to a length
at tho milo buoy. Tha swell from the
sound .steamers "bothered them slightly,
but they soon got through the broken
water aud then the struggle became des
perate. As Teenier cut down iloss led
inch by Inch. In a quarter of a mile
Teenier had spurted to the front and iu
another 200 yards he showed open water.
It was now dear to all that Hoss was set
tled. Teenier rowed a tine stroke while
Koss became very erratic. This, in addi
tion to his exhausted condition, made
him labor heavily. At the stake boat
Teenier was leading a long way, aud the
turn was made by him in 1:5:13. Iloss'
timo was 13:17 1-2, From this point to
tho close it was a procession, though
Teenier caught a bail "crab."
