Which is in Danger of Proving a

Chicago, May 27.—The markets on
'change to-day were moderately active, aud
although values of grains were at limes in
buyers' favor the general tone was stronger
and prices higher, closing :it about the high
est figure for all articles, wheat being the
most largely >U -i',; iv. and exhibiting the
largest appreciation in prices. Provisions

scalpers, who had bought before the advance

buy when they discovered that the market
was oversold and sellers scarce. Prices
quickly started on the upgrade, the 'bidding

The corn market was only moderately ac

Oats sympathized with the strength in
wheat and corn, but the market did not

In provisions there was only a moderate
business, speculators not being inclined to

Onic.vGO, May 27.—There was a decided
improvement in the feeling in business cir
cles this morning, in response to more as
suring advices from New York. Bankers
generally expressed the opinion that the
financial storm had spent its fury and their
expressions met with hearty approval from
legitimate business quarters. One of the
most healthy signs was an increased demand
for New York exchange from city and coun
try bankers and an advance in the rate from
50c discount, at which it closed yesterday, to
par and 35c premium per $1,000 this morn
ing. The flow of money also turned from
the country to the city. Banks report a fair
but not unusual demand for loanable funds,
the supply being sufficient for all business
requirements. Foreign exchange quiet at
email@example.com for sixty day documentary ster
ling. To-day's associated bank clearings
were $0,515,000, against §0,755,000 yester

New York, May 27.The demand from
the shorts this morning made an exceed
ingly active market, and there was consider
able doing for the long account in the stocks
which were so severely raided yesterday.
Delaware & Laekawanna came to the front
as the leader with immense transactions in
it. It sold at par before noon. The first
sale in Pullman was at 100 also. As the
day advanced the shorts became thoroughly
alarmed and the advancewas so sharp that by
2 o'clock it looked more like a bear panic
than anything else. Many who
bought early and realized had no chance tD
purchase except at higher figures. It has
been a field for the room traders, and they
were very busy. The improvement helped
the situation universally and the feeling was
quite buoyant throughout. It will he a case
without a parallel if after such a boom we do
not see some sharp downward turns as the
short interest has been so largely reduced,
and the leading bears stand ready to any
decline as soon as the opportunity offers.
The market closed steady, most stocks show
ing a handsome gain over last evening's fig
A. M. Da}- says: "The market was open
ed high but permitted to sell off until trad
ers had put out short lines, then the active
list was bid up, led by Laekawanna and the
Gould stocks. The bears stood it for a
while and then began rapid covering, on
which the bull leaders sold a great many
stocks. The selling was so open as to cause
a reaction in most of the list during the last
hour. We think the market depends upon
whether the amount of outside buying is
sufficient to encourage the bull leaders
in maintaining the advance. The short
interest is large and prices are low. If the
public shows a disposition to follow up the
rise considerable higher prices may be seen,
without such outside buying a sharp reac
tion is certain to occur. The fact that the
leaders have sold freely to-day indicates
that they are ready to take profits."

He Tells Some Stories of Bliss ami
Washington, May 27.—Mr. Kcr, in his
testimony before the Springer com mitten to
day, said it seemed that Kellogg had gone
about newspaper offices and talked about
him. He had been informed ihat he, Kel
logg, had told a certain correspondent that
he would or ought to take a shot gun and
blow out his, Ker's, brains. I want to say
right here, said the witness, that if Kellogg
wants that kind of satisfaction, if he will let
me know the time and place I shall be there.
If he wants that kind of satisfaction he may
have it. My character has never been as
Witness said, that Bliss told him there was
no use bothering with indictments in the
Parker-Salisbury combinations, that he was
going to arbitrate them. I said he couldn't
do it legally, and that was an end of it. Ker
then referred to the proceedings of the grand
jury, and said, there was not a scratch of a
pen to show that any record had been kept.
That other grand iuries kept records, except
the one which convened the following June,
and which considered the Kellogg case. Who
ever was responsible for this onimissiou, Ker
said, ought to be held accountable.
Keference was made to the inditcment of
Dorsey and Brady by the Mitchell grand jury,
in preparing the indictment, Ker said, he
included Kcllogg's name, but the jury omit
ted it. Merrick insisted that the Kellogg
case should be brought before the grand
jury. Bliss approved it, audt finally the at
torney general gave orders to proceed with
the indictment against Kellogg, and witness
went before the grand jury and a present
ment was made. Bliss was indignant at
indictment being found. He went to New
York and said he would not come back. He
was induced, however to return. Ker con
tinued. Kellogg told Bliss that he took the
$20,000 received from Price, and used it for
political purposes in Louisiana.
Greenback National Convention.
Indianapolis, Ind., May 27.—The attend
ance on the Greenback national convention,
which meets here to-morrow, is unexpected
ly large, as there are now about 500 dele
gates in the city and the managers expect
200 more. The convention meets to-mor
row at 11 o'clock, and all indications point
to the nomination of Ex-Gov. Butler for
president. There is a good deal of opposition
to Butler, which is led by Solon Chase, of
Maine, and George O. Jones, of New York,
but there is no probability that it will de
velop enough strength to defeat the Massa
chusetts man. An attempt has been made
to work up a boom for Jesse Harper, of
Illinois, and the Maryland delegation will
vote for him, but the movement has little
'' strength elsewhere. General West, of Mis
sissippi, appears to be the unanimous choice
for vice president- Gen. Tyler, of Florida,
will be made temporary chairman, and Gen.
Weaver, of lowa, permanent presiding

Washington, May 27.—Senator Cameron
(Perm.) appeared in the senate this morning and
the senators congratulated him on his safe re
turn and improved health.
' Several petitions were presented opposing gov
ernment assumption of telegraph functions.
Senator Slater of the committee on public lands
reported favorably a bill to forfeit the grant along
the uncompleted portion of the Northern Pacific

tee on postoflices and post roads, on the subject
of postal telegraph.

right of way through a portion of the Yellow
Senator Conger submitted an amendment to
limit the company's control to 100 feet width and
prohibiting the company from erecting buildings
except for station purposes.
Senator Logan opposed the bill. There was,
he said, a disposition to gobble up everything in
connection with the park by the railroads and
hotel companies, lie (Logan) had found herds
of cattle and horses in the park. A department
of the United States government had divided up
into seven parts, the ten acres which the law al
lowed to be rented to one company and placed
one company in possession of all hotel privileges
in the park and drove everybody else out, and
now congress unwisely asks the states to be
made a football to be kicked about by men out
side of it for their personal gain. He (Logan)
would have to do some plain speaking on the
subject. He had been lobbied more this winter
in behalf of this railroad by an official of the gov
ernment, who was receiving $50,000 a year, more
than he ever had been lobbied in his life. Of
course he knew the gentleman well, but thought
it in very bad taste for an officer of the department
having charge of the park to become a lobbyist
for the destruction of the park. Whatever that
gentleman may think of his (Logan,) remarks
was immaterial. That gentleman and himself
had always been good friends, but he (Logan)
had lost his respect for any man that would lobby
for a corporation. He protested against the de
struction of the park.
Senator Vest gave some details of the park,
and said every word stated by Logan was true.
Although congress had absolutely forbidden
monopoly it had been permitted, and the park
was under control of a private corporation.
The matter then went over and the Utah bill
was then taken' up.
Senator Brown said that the Edmunds bill was
a shameful violation of the constitution. He
contrasted what he termed polygamy in New
England and polygamy in Utah. The picture he
drew, he said, was drawn "morn in sorrow than
in . anger." - There had been over
27,000 divorces granted in New England
within the last twenty years, destroying 27,000
families, and turning loose 54,000 persons to
marry again, all illegally except those who were
divorced for adultery or fornication with another
party. Assuming that one-third of them had
been divorced for adultery, it would leave 30,000
persons divorced and married again, who were
practicing polygamy in New England, while a
commission acting under the Edmunds bill, after
having searched Utah with a test oath, could find
but 12,000 men and women who would not swear
that they "had never in their lives been guilty of
polygamy. Prostitution was practiced in New
England to an alarming extent, and fceticide to
such an extent that if continued, it would in less
than a century depopulate New England of its
Puritan stock. A nation of Mormons was impos
sible. Not so a nation of libertines. In Massa
chussetta within the last twenty years, the popu
lation had increased 44 per cent., and marriages
62 per cent., while divorces increased 147 per
cent. It behooved the Christian and patriot to
ponder the consequence that must follow from
snch a state of society. The churches
denounced polygamy, and demanded its suppres
sion, and the churches were right, but how then
could they wink at illegal divorce. How, with
out censure, see their ministers officiating for a
petty fee at adulterous marriages. If ministers
and churches did their whole duty, public senti
ment "rould soon sweep from our statute books
the i picked and immoral divorce laws. He
claim d no right to lecture either the Christian
chut les or their ministers, but as a citizen and
isenf .'i-, he felt it his duty to express his convic
tions with regard to this great evil, which was
undermining the sanctity of family, society and
state. Many persons advocated putting Mormons
to the sword. It would be an outrage on morali
ty and decency to attempt to slaughter helpless
people.because they entertaided views on moral
questions to which we could not sub
scribe. It was absurd to assert that the
Mormons were in rebellion. No people could
be in rebellion who did not resist the laws by
force. The Mormons held themselves at all times
ready to respond to legal process. A people so
conducting themselves could not be in rebellion
in any legal sense. Brown turned some sarcastic
periods in what he termed the intermeddling of
New England in other people's business, as in
the affairs of the southern states. People did not
object so much to the practices in Utah as to the
names by which they were called. The Utah
commissioners in prescribing a test oath for
voters, were careful to exclude only those who
cohabited with more than one woman in the mar
riage relation. The Gentile who had one wife
and one or more mistresses could take the oath
without difficulty. There was an immense
amount of cant and hypocrisy about the whole
thing. Brown was ready to sanction all consti
tutional legislation which could be devised for
the suppression of polygamy in Utah and of
illegal divorce, prostitution and fa>ticide in New
England and elsewhere, but he was not willing to
violate the oath he had taken to support the con
stitution to gratify New England's intermeddling
or to suppress any sect or denomination, however
unpopular it might be.
Hoar said he had heard enough of Brown's
speech to comprehend its character, bnt not its
motives. It did not seem possible that any sena
tor had taken so much pains as his speech mdi
cated for the mere purpose of making a malicious
and malignant attack on the people of New Eng
land. Hoar could only infer that Mormonism
was more in accord with that senator's convict
ions than opposed to them. The senator from
Georgia (Brown) had made a speech, the logical
inference of which was that polygamy was better
than the lawful marriage of one husband to one
wife. Each country and each section of each
country may have vices, but whatever there was
in New England that was a reproach to her, Hoar
said,was carefully written down by New England
historians. There were sections of
country in i: which that course
was not pursued. If he cared
to follow the style of argument followed by
Brown. He could say some things, without even
referring to statistics, which would be sufficiently
disagreeable, with a desire to credit the position
of country from which the senator came with as
much propriety as he could. Hoar thought that
the presence of a large number of mulattos re
mained to be accounted for in some way, but he
would not cuter upon this sort of argument. This
was a bill, having a specific purpose applicable to
Utah. ' '
A motion to adjourn was made, to which Hoar
objected, and the vote being a tie, 27 to 27, the
motion failed. A motion was immediately made
to go into executive session, resulting in another
tic vote, 29 to 29. .
Hoar then said he would not insist™ keeping
the senate.but expressed the hope thafjfo-morrow
there would be a long sitting in order to press
the bill through. Adjourned..

Mr. Kurd admitted that under the the laws of

Mr. Mills believed, according to the law

DANVILLE AND COPIAH,
A Majority Report ou the Former and
a Minority Report on the Latter.
The Reports Show That It's all Owing to the
Position from which you see the Matter.
Washington, May 27.—The majority of the
senate election committee on. the Danville riot,
declares it was premeditated and preconcerted
for the purpose of raising the race inssue and
intimidating the negroeß. That the Democrats
prearranged the riots and endorsed, it after it
had occurred. Senator Lapham, who
prepared the report, introduced
some telegrams which he claimed snstained the
conclusion that the riot was the deliberate work
of the Democratic party. The committe finds no
evidence that the negroes fired a shot until after
the whites fired a general volley, and that very
few had weapons of any kind. The negroes were
of all ages and both sexes, gathered unquestion
ably from curiosity, the whites, on the contrary,
were generally armed. The lire bells were rung,
but not fora fire. On the contrary, it was the
secret signal for a white military company. The
whites came rapidly from all directions, and arms
vere distributed to those who had none from the
shops and stores. The report concludes, the ob
ject ol the Demecrats in their efforts to raise a
race issue, to alarm the blacks and ex
cite the whites, was two-fold: First, to
intimidate the colored voters in localities
where they were strong, as in Danville. Second
—chiefly to produce such a frenzy of feeling in
the state as would induce tin; white electors to
join with their own race, and escape the re
proach to which they would otherwise be sub
jected, for fraternizing politically with niggers.
It was made to appear that the blacks were the
offenders, when, in truth, the white Democrats
were a mob in possession of the town, and no
negro dared to make his appearance on the
streets. The occurrence was one which caused
rejoicing instead oE regret among the Democrats.
The recommendations made in the copy of the
report that the basis of representation be re
duced when the right to vote is denied or
abridged in any state, are adopted as part of this
The minority report on the Copiah investiga
tion dissents entirely f-oni the statements and
conclusions contained in the report of the major
ity, and presents their own view of the affairs
formed from the testimony of reputable and
credible witnesses examined by thecoreßiU.ee.
They express the opinion that the Inve&flgacion
was originated and conducted for the purpose of
aiding the Republicans in the approaching presi
dential canvass, by reviving the stories of outrage
and crime which were so effectually used in for
mer political campaigns, and perhaps to furnish
an excuse, if necessary, for rejecting the vote of
Mississippi iv the electoral college, and thereby
defeating, as was done in ISTB, the clearly ex
pressed . will of the American people in 'the
choice of president. They refer to the Eliza
I'iukston story, and ask who believes it to day,
aud assert that this and other such tales, having
lost their potency, the Danville and Copiah
investigation^ were conceived and brought
forth. They say the majority report
evidently ignored and purposely disregarded the
sworn testimony of the most intelligent, trust
worthy and reliable citizens of Copiah county,
and gave full credence and belief to the state
ment of persons,'some of whom were shown to
be destitute of character for veracity and others
gppaarently too ignorant to understand and re
gard the obligation of the oathi/taken by them.
The report states thu people of Copiah county
are law abiding and that the number of crimes
and violations ot thu law committed by the white
people in that country, are less in number and
less aggravated in character, than in many por
tions of New England and other northern states
that boast of their educational advantages and
superior civilization. They analyze the testimony
before the committee to show that the crimes in
vestigated were not political crimes. With re
gard to the killing of Matthews, the minority
quote from the testimony to show that
it resulted from a personal quarrel
between Matthews and Wheeler about politics,
and that Wheeler was acquitted on the plea of
self-defense, of Matthews, they say, "he car
ried srms upon his person and was regarded by
many as ready, even eager, for a fray. He was
just such a person as would be likely to come in
to collision with others sooner or later, that
would end seriously if not fatally."' In regard
to the investigation proposed by the majority of
the next election in Mississippi, the minority
say it is a threat to disfranchise the people of the
state of Mississippi in the coming presidential
election, made with a view to deterring the citi
zens of that state from casting its electoral vote
contrary to the party in power, and that a more
flagrant and abhorrent attempt to bulldoze an
entire state by threatening to disfranchise its
people and destroy its autonomy cannot|be found j
in thu annals of constitutional government. In
conclusion, the minority gay: "The duty of the
undersigned is perhaps discharged by
exposing the animus of recommen
dation but they feel justified in say
ing they little understand the spirit or temper of
the American people,who suppose they will again
submit to the defeat of their will in the choice of
a president, as was the case in IST7. Neither an
electoral commission, nor armed soldiers around
this capital will prevent the installation in the
presidents! office of the man elevated to that po
sition by the votes ot his countrymen. The re
proach brought upon our system of government
by the occurrences which placed in chief execu
tive office a man who had been defeated at the
polls, is too keenly felt by the people of the
country to justify a belief that they will tolerate
for a momenta suggestion of their repetition,and
the minority can but express their surprise at the
temerity that volnnteers, however covertly, to
avow a pnrpose so destructive to the hopes and
honor of the country.'" The report is signed by
Senators Vance, Saulsbury, Pugh and JBues.

A Stolen ReceiDt.
Sax Francisco, May 27.—1n the Sharon di
vorce case to-day. Sharon again occupied
the stand. He testified that on the 7th of No
vember, 1881, the plaintiff came to his room, and
he told her he did not wish her to come to his
rooms any more. He offared her §5,000 to cease
coming. She replied it was not enough as she
wanted $10,000. He then offered her $7,500
which she accepted. He received a receipt from
her in full of all claims. The receipt was after
wards stolen from his room. He could not
swear by whom, but he accused the plaintiff of
New York's Produce Exchange.

THE PENNSYLVANIA BANK. '
Riddle's Prostration Precipitates the 3
Failure of the Hot Springs National—Presi
dent Fish makes a Statement.
■ • 1
PiTTSBURO, Pa., May 27.— affairs of 1
the Pennsylvania Bank continues to be the 1
engrossing subject among all classes, but up i
to noon there was as little definitely known 1
as at the .lime of closing yesterday. Presi- ]
dent Riddle slept fairly well last night and 1
this morning was sufficiently recovered to 1
enable bis friends to remove him to the resi- <
dence of D. A. Stewart, East. End.' Two <
well known and experienced bankers made a 1
careful examination of the books last night. ]
Every opportunity was given them to make a 1
superficial examination. According to their 1
statement, the books show that $300,000 ]
were drawn out from the time of resumption
on Friday until the close yesterday, with de- ]
posits decreased correspondingly. The state- ]
ment that $300,000 eertilicd checks, not in- (
eluded in the statement made to the associa- ]
tion of banks, is incorrect. No such checks
are existing. In their opinion, if the books
are correct, the bank ought to pay every cent
of its debt. There is less talk of crookedness
and the impression is that the second sus
pension was due wholly to timidity aud de
moralization when President Riddle was
suddenly prostrated. The directors have not
yet made a statement, but there is a general
demand for something authoritative from
them of the banks condition. The general
condition of the other banks is unchanged. '■
The,directors of the defunct bank this
morning took possession of the individual
book accounts of the concern, aud up to 1
O'clock had struck some developments
which promise to show why the second col
lapse came so suddenly. ' There is among
the accounts one on the firm of D. Wilson <&
Co., which shows overchecking to the extent
of $240,000. No such firm is known in this
city, and it is supposed to represent the ac
counts of a number of persons lately oper
ating on the wrong side of the oil market,
t:1io have been allowed to drain it to the ex
tent named. The director who furnished
this information states further that the ac
count of a prominent oil dealer is overdrawn
897,000. These two accounts make an over
draft of $337,000, or $7,000 in excess of the
entire capital and surplus of the bank, and
the directors have appointed a committee to
employ an expert to go over the books and;
report as speedily as possible.
Two attachments were granted to-day
against the property of the Pennsylvania
bank in this state, in suits brought by Thom
as C. Jenkins, to recover §5,000 in each case
upon drafts, the payment of which were re
Pixtsburg, May 27.—There have been no
new developments in the Pennsylvania bank
failure to-night. All efforts to locate the
firm of D. Wilson & Co. are unsuccessful,,
and it is not expected that any light will be
thrown on the affair until President Riddle
recovers sufficiently to make a statement.
New York, May 27. —An injunction was

New Yokk, May 27.—President Fish now
says he did not mean to charge that Gen.
Grant had any guilty knowledge of frauds in
the government contracts, but simply in
tended to say the letters received from Gen.
Grant were of such a tenor as to warrant any
one having confidence in the representations
ot Ward. John D. Fish says his father re
garded Gen. Grant's position in regard to
Ward's transactions similar to his own. Both

Democratic as faithfully, loyally and reliably
as the rising and setting of the sun, is that
