Chicago, June —On 'change to-day
the grain markets were somewhat feverish
and though values were irregular the fluctua
tions were confined within a narrow range.
As usual trading was confined chiefly to local
operators, many of whom were evening up
their trades, preferring that to carrying them
over Sunday and the balance merely scalping
the market. There was a stronger feeling
early but the market was destitute of energy
and when dealers had evened up that little
strength was lost and the closing
figures were a fraction under yesterday's last
■sales and at the lowest price of the ; day.
"Wheat showed the heaviest advance, but had
but little intrinsic support, and there are no
apparent reasons to look for a large or per
manent advance. Those who expect to
make profits by buying should take advan
tage of declines and sell on bulges without
waiting to make more than a scalping profit,
but the wisest course* in the present condition
of the market is to stay out of it entirely. A
well kno\vn exporter said to-day:
"The stock here is daily be
coming less desirable for shipping, on
account of the bin swell which develops im
mediately after its withdrawal from store,
and this characteristic is likely to become
more marked as the summer advances." *
The provision market was without new fea
tures, and very little doing, speculators be
ing still backward about operating, especial
ly in pork, which is cornered, and shippers
having but few orders. Prices were com
paratively steady lor all descriptions. The
receipts of the product were fair and ship
ments liberal of meats, but moderate of pork
In wheat a fair business was transacted
chiefly on local account. Foreign markets
were dull and heavy and New.York advices
were not encouraging to buyers, but the Illi
nois reports relative to winter wheat were less
favorable than many had anticipated.
Stories of damage by heavy rains in Califor
nia are again repeated and all these formed
the arguments of the bulls at the opening to
induce the shorts to cover, and for awhile
were quite successful. July opened at SSJ^c,
about yesterday's close, and on free buying
by shorts who, in view of the comparatively
low prices, are not disposed to stand by
their trades long, when the market turns
against them, prices were bid up to 88)£@
BS%c, but there was little outside support in
the shape of speculative buying for an ad
vance and exporters were cautious about bid
ding. One of the most prominent brokers
in the foreign trade claimed that his buying
limits were lowered and left the market and
when the shorts were .covered and the early
buyers for a scalp were up the demand was
slow and the efforts to- realize by large opera
tors who had bought (jarly net but a feeble
response from buyers, and prices gradually
settled and closed on 'change, at BS>£@ .
SS)£c and on the cu.rb at 88c. August ranged
I%@lKc above Jujy and September I%@
\%c above August.
There were few supporting features in the
corn market, w'aich was quiet and dull.
There was a fair shipping demand for sample
lots on track, but speculative trades were dul ■
for both cash an.d futures. The early strength
in wheat caused a slightly firm feeling at the
opening, and prices were 56@563^c for July,
but the absence of demand caused a sluggish
movement and when wheat weakened corn
followed, and sold down to a "weak close of
Oats were, in fair shipping demand, and
were freely offered, but speculative futures
were quieA, and a shade weaker.
Nothiu g of consequence was doing in pork,
and prie'es were nominally unchanged. The
Inquiry on shipping account was light. July
closed tjuict at $19.70.
The demand for lard was exceedingly light
and offerings small, July closed at $8.12%@
Short ribs were in small demand. Prices
were higher early, but closed easier at $8.40
@S.42}£ for July.
The cattle market during the morning was
dull and dragging. The xeciepts it will be
seen were light, yet these were more than
were wanted and . nearly half
the number on sale ; were
grass . Texans and poor grass
natives. There were onfly a few loads of
really good solid corn fed on sale and there
was little or no demand. The were at least
one hundred Texans on the market, and we
note the sale of 505 gressers averaging about
800 pounds at §firstname.lastname@example.org, but common would
not bring over $3.75. Native butchers stock,
especially the old cows, are selling slow at
low figures. There is little or nothing doing
in 6tockers, and the general trade closes dull
with prices ratherweak on all descriptions.
There was a brisk demand for the hog mar
ket for choice heavy packers and shippers,
and for a time these sorts sold a strong 10c
higher; yet toward, the close prices rather
weakened, though about all had been sold
at a range of $5.15(«!5.75, v one or two ; lots
touching $5.80. Assorted lights were in bet
ter demand, and sold at $email@example.com. There
was a brisk demand for skips and assorted
—light which sold at a range of $ 4.75@
10. The market closed steady with the
pens well cleared. ■
In sheep there was no business worth men
tioning during the morning, and the market
closed dull and weak.
Hamill & Brine say: "Stocks of wheat
here are yet large and. we think must be
greatly reduced in ordeir to avert the depress
ing influence of changing the July options
into those of later months. 'While current
values are not high we ! feel the situation, in
the absence of serious damage to the growing
crops, does not warrant j expectation of per
manent improvement in t the \ near future,
Should the stocks of corn in store suffer seri
ous depletion during the coming week we do
not expect any immediate ; decline
of importance, but material im
provement " we think improbable,
unless the. current liberal receipts should be
interfered with by some- serious change in
the present very favorable outlook for the
growing crop." . .
J. \V. Rumsey & Co. say: "Trading is
very light, and. until business improves i lit
tie activity can be looked for. At the same
time there is an inquiry for shipments, and
on the whole we would rather buy at the cur
rent prices than take the short side."
McCormick, Kcnnett & Day : say: "The
course of the market will depend largely on
the weather, ■ and with ' the ■ present
' outlook it is safe to sell wheat on every bulge.
The advance in rail rates: will : control ship
ments and there is nothing to encourage
buying except the low price, unless it be to
get in on some good break for a quick turn.
Milmiuc, Bodman '&, Co.say:, "The mar
ket is very sensitive, the general belief being
that prices are the bottom, or at least nearer
an export basis ; hence there is no disposi
. tion to sell short and there being , but little
ihortage in . our ; market .- at .' : present on

. nfluenced quickly by current r^'/ev-
ents, such as may transpire from
day to day bearing on the crop prospects,
export demand, etc. If the crop matures
all right we predict lower prices than we
have yet seen, but should any calamity hap
pen to the crop we might look for the wildest
speculative season known in many years.
We have found by experience it is safest to
calculate on average good weather.

Chicago, June 14.—During the week there
has been a gradual hardening in rates for
money and our leading discount houses
have demanded and received 6@7 per cent,
for the use of the needful. The demand
has been good and the supply of loanable
funds kept pace with the wants of regular
customers and others in good standing. Ap
plicants in the speculative line were given
the cold shoulder and had to seek comfort on
the streets. The trade of the city
has been quiet. Deposits have
been fair and the movement
of currency has been in favor of the city.
To-day the banks were ready takers of A 1
paper presented by regular customers but
refused to accommodate outsiders. There
was a supply of money in excess of all legiti
mate requirements though rates remained
strong at 6@7 per cent. The bank clearings
were 87,219,144. The clearings for the week
foot up $42,-180,471 against $51,770,313 the
corresponding week last year. Eastern ex

THE ST. PAUL" SUNDAY GLOBE. SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 15, 1884.
• WINNING A FLAG.
Company D, M. S. N. G-, Take the
Prize Banner From the National
Scenes and Incidents at Hotel Lafayette,
Everything was as bright as a newly mint
ed dollar of 1884 at Miunetonka beach yes
terday. Hotel Lafayette looked as though it
had been painted but a day, and, bedecked
with the flag bearing its name, the pretty
banner of the National Rifles and the stars
and stripes, with here and there decorations
of an appropriate military character, togetheij
with the Sunday costumes and Sunday smiles
of those who thronged it all the afternoon, it
presented a truly beautiful and wonderfully
attractive appearance. The grounds, too,
were in excellent condition, and were cov
ered all over with white clover blossoms,
and the lake, gently tossed to oc
casional white caps by a playful
wind, invited erstwhile longshoremen to be
come sailors for a brief period. The
Belle of Minnetonka was elegantly fitted up
especially for this event, and was the subject
of general favorable lemark. ' The other
boats were not rigged in holiday attire, but
presented a clean and attractive appearance,
and the small shipping had plenty to do as
carriers of passengers for short trips.
The early trains bore to the lake a goodly
number of passengers, many of whom took
advantage of the opportunity offered to make
the morning aquatic tour on the Belle. ■ The
trip was thoroughly enjoyed by those who
made it, and by none more than by the Na
tional Rifles themselves, who are immensely
delighted with lake and land at Minne
tonka. The large crowd, however, departed
for the scene at 1:30, a very long train be
ing filled full at St. Paul, among the
number Company, D, M. S. N. G.,
and at Minneapolis other cars
were added and an exceptionally large delega
tion got aboard. The train arrived at Hotel
Lafayette at 2:45. On reaching the plat
form, Capt. Bean formed his company of
bold soldier boys in fours and marched them
to the enclosure roped in for the competitive
drill, just in front of the center of the hotel
and midway between the latter and the lake,
where, after going through with various evo
lutions to the very evident delight of their
admirers, they stacked arms and 6allied forth
to meet their to-be competitors in social
converse. The time between this and 4:30
was enjoyed by the military and civilians in
hobnobbing on topics foreign to politics and
religion and partaking sparingly of very
mild lemonade. At 4:30 another long train
arrived on the ground, materially swelling
the crowd, and immediately thereafter Com
pany D was ordered inside the ropes.
Company D has labored seriously and
faithfully in its practice drills to master, as
far as possible, the intricacies of military
movements, and expected to make a credit
able showing in competition with* the far
famed National Rifles, a showing of which
every Minnesotian might well be proud, but,
outside of half a dozen members, there
never was a belief that victory at Minneton
ka would perch upon their banners. The
triumph was a complete surprise. Even al
most up to the moment of the close of the
contest they felt thiit they were beaten, al
though much less than at first predicted;
and when the prize fell into their hands their
enthusiasm knew no bounds.
Lieuts. Glenn, Sanborn and Tear, of the
regular army, stationed :it Fort Snelliug,
were selected as judges to the entire satis
faction of both companies.
Forty men were selected from each com
pany to enter the competition, and the St.
Paul company first took the field. Their
movements were beautiful and very precise
in most instances, showing the results of
their discipline to -good effect, and were
greeted with round after round of spontane
ous and hearty applause. The company
first went through the evolutions of arms as
given in the manual, followed by
an inspection, which was gone into
very minutely, much to the surprise of
both contestants and considerably to
the disgust of the National Rifles.
Lieut. Glenn, by the way the most attract
ive and dignified figure on the grounds, in
sisted on looking the pieces over entirely,
even to casting a comprehensive glance into
the barrel and rubbing the ramrod on his
glove, to discover if possible any slovenli
ness on the part of the soldiery under his
eye. The Rifles, discovering from
the outside of the enclosure the method of
procedure, went vigorously to work with
handkerchiefs and such other linen as they
could compass on short notice, cleaning up
their glint, to the great merriment of the
spectators, but they were ambitious and un
daunted, and kept up the rubbing process by
fits and starts to the hour
for their drill. After the in
spection of the St. Paul company's arms
various marches and countermarches were
gone through with in a way that would have
pleased Upton himself. The wheeling of
Company D is especially worthy of note and
commendation, this being the most complete
success of anything put on exhibition, every
body, even to the partisans of the Rifles
speaking of it "as splendid, and the girls
called it just too lovely. The firing from the
various positions was well done in unison.
The allotted forty minutes being up Capt.
Bean made way for the Rifles.
Lieut. Oyster then marched his men into
the enclosure and called the attention of the
judges to the fact that Com pan y D had drilled
with but thirty-nine men and that they had
left the field with their pieces loaded, which is
contrary to the rules of military science.
Ho might have added also
that several important movements had been
entirely omitted, either intentionally or
otherwise. The Rifles appeared in black
pants, navy blue coats and ordinary military
caps. It was noticed from the first that they
had a great deal of snap and confidence in
their ability to do what they set about, that
spirit which is noticed iv regular troops,
which says in every turn of head, hand or
foot we are used to this, because we do it
every day, and fifty-two weeks in a year.
Shortly after the Rifles took the field the
opinion settled on everybody's mind that
they would win, and everybody set to work
wondering how big the "difference between
the two wrould be. They had the manual in
their minds,and executed it with rapidity and
accuracy. Their firings, too, "were
marvels ot precision, but a 6ingle sharp
click being heard at the fall of the hammers.
The firing by file was perhaps the most con
spicuous success of the Rifles, and received
well merited applause. In the inspection,
however, they got a very black mark, and
they entered the protest that this should not
be considered, as they necessarily had dirty
arms from traveling so far. In marching,
also, they were considerably behind Company
D, their deficiency in wheeling being espec
ially obvious. They made a big blunder
near the close, and in this lies the key to
their defeat, in passing in review at shoulder
arms when they should have been at a carry.
Lieut. Oyster asked for a slight extension of
time in which to perform certain
extra evolutions, among them that
of stacking arms, which was done
in a manner seldom equaled. There were,
however, many individual errors made,
•which could not be reconciled by military
i men with their long practice. Some of them
may safely be charged to their recent extend
ed trip. Ilad the drill occurred some day
in the coming week the result might have
been more satisfactory to the Rifles.
When the drill was finished the judges put
their heads together and compared notes so
long that people who didn't know the train
would wait till the whole performance was
over got afraid that they would be left and
started for the depot. ■ Those who were bet
ter acquainted with affairs repaired to the
veranda of the hotel and awaited re
sults. Shortly after 6 o'clock Lieut.
Glenn brought up the announcement that
Company I) was successful by a hair's
breadth, as it were, about in a ratio of 94 to
96, and entitled to the $250 banner present
ed by the Manitoba Railway company. The
t banner is a regulation satin, red and white
barred American flag, with a blue field with
thirty-eight white stars. The whole is en
circled with yellow fringe, and tied to a staff
of light wood with red, white and blue rib
bons. On the bars are stitched in yellow the
words: "First prize, inter-state competitive
drill, Hotel Lafayette, Minnetonka Beach,
Minn, June, 1884; awarded to Company D.
M. 8. N. G." The above announcement
was made in private, but soon after the
flag was placed in the hands
of Mayor O'Brien, who gave away the decis
ion to the public in a terse little speech, to
which Capt. Bean, Company D, responded
appropriately. Then the hilarity of the St.
Paul people present was allowed to caper,and
the exhibition of enthusiasm was general
and hearty. Everybody was excessively
tickled, men, women and children, and
Company D's collective arm was well tested
for once. The Rifles took their defeat good
naturedly, and showed themselves to be the
gentlemen that they are. In a competition
on social qualities the Rifles would not be
defeated by any military organization in ex
IN ST. PAUL.
Nearly two hours before the arrival of the
train the wings of electricity had borne the
news of victory to St. Paul, and a large con
course of citizens had gathered at the depot
and on the streets in the vicinity. Several
wholesale houses, had been robbed of brooms,
and a broom brigade was formed. The pro
cession was made up in the following order:
Great Western band; a detachment of artil
lery with drawn swords; two platoons of
Company C, of twenty-eight men each,armed
with brooms, under command of Capt.
Wright; several members of Company E and
a largu number of citizens, under William
Wilson, all provided with brooms, and last,
Company D with the trophy. The procession
moved up Sibley to Wabashaw, up Waba
shaw to the Market house and thence
to the armor}', the band playing the
while, and the populace vociferously herald
ing its delight. At the armory Capt. Bean
made a characteristic speech to his men,
somebody set up the cigars all around, and
then there was a season of. wild, rollicking
hand shaking, and the crowd dispersed. One
thing occurred at the armory which marred
somewhat the pleasure of the impromptu
proceedings there. After the companies had
got inside the building, somebody, thinking
to avoid a crush, barred the doors and kept
the citizens out for a time, but when the offi
cers were made aware of the fact the doors
were thrown wide open and everybody given
an opportunity to shake hands to his "heart's
content. The St. Paul companies wish it
understood that the closing of the doors was
an oversight for which they are thoroughly

Calumet & Hecla Mining Forger Cap-
tured at His Minnesota Farm.
One of Pinkerton's Chicago detectives,
and Detective O'Connor, of St. Paul, re
turned yesterday from Moorehead from a
successful search after a forger, named John
Lowry, Jr., who is charged with forging re
ceipts for money, to the amount of $46,800.
HOW IT WAS DONE.
For many years Lowr}* was the trusted con
fidential clerk and bookkeeper of the Calumet
ifc Hecla Mining company, of Calumet, Mich.
This , company is doing an
immense business, paying out on
an average of $150,000 or $175,000 per
month. Three years ago he left the service
of the company very much against the wish
es of those actively interested. The man
agers desired to have him stay, and to induca
him to do so offered to increase his salary,
and do almost anything else he desired to
have them. No proposition that they could
make could induce him to remain and he
closed up his accounts with the company and
left, his departare being very much regretted
by his employers. Three years
have passed stnee be left his employers.
About one month ago they discovered in
some way, a receipt for §8,000, purporting to
be signed by one of the contractors of the
company, who denied ever having received
the money. Upon a thorough examination
it was found that the signature of the con
tractor was forged to the receipt by Lowry.
This led to further investigation which dis
closed the fact that between December, 1879,
and May 29, 1882, eight receipts had been
forged in the same way, the total amount
of which is $46,800. Steps were immediately
taken to discover where Lowry was, and fin
ally it was discovered that he was on a farm
about eight miles from Moorhead. The
necessary papers for taking him back were
obtained, not only for -Minnesota, but also
for Dakota, the officers thinking that possib
ly Lowry, finding they were after him might
skip across into Dakota.
HOW HE WAS ARRESTED.
The two detectives went to Moorhcad and
getting a team drove out to
the prisoners' farm. When ' they had ap
proached the house and as they were driving
along the road they saw a man coming across
the field. Thinking he was the one they
wanted they drove along till they met him
as he came across into the road, when they
opened a conversation with him on general
subjects. Discovering by a scar on his face
that he was the man they informed him that
had papers for him. Lowry smiled and ask
ed where from. and when told
he immediately gave up and completely
wilted, saying that he would go right along
with them. After giving some directions to
his men and informing them that he was go
ing away to be gone a week or so to settle
up some business, he started with the offi
cers, who finally turned him over to James
Healey, sheriff of Houston county, Mich.
THE MAN AND HIS FARM.
Lowry is a quiet gentlemanly man, who
never drinks or dissipates in any way. He
has a wife and four children in Oberlaud, 111.
His farm consists of 2,000 acres under full
cultivation, with good houses and well
stocked with horses and cattle, and all the
machinery necessary to carry it on. The
officers represent it as a model farm, worth
at least $25,000 and a very lovely place.
ORDWAY TO CAMPBELL
Proposal That Both Shall Have Theis
Official Acts Investigated.
Tankton, June 14.—Gov. N. G. Ordway to-daj,
addressed a letter to Hugh J. Campbell, United
States district attorney, in which he speaks of
the indictment returned against him, Ordway,
which was procured) as he contends, by local
prejudice, and also adverts to the published
statement that he is seeking to evade a thorough
inquiry into his official conduct as governor.
Addressing Campbell in person he says:

The Seventh Street Fire—Loss $15,000
aud Insurance §10,000.
At 2:30 yesterday morning, as recorded
in yesterday's Globe, one of the hottest tires
of this season was discovered to be under
full headway in about the center of a ne6t of
old wooden structures mainly used for shops
and saloons in the space on the north side of
East Seventh street between John Kline's
brick block on the corner of Wabashaw
street and the corner of Seventh and Cedar
streets. The alarm was given to the fire de
partment very tardily to say the least, for
such a central portion of the city, and when
it arrived on the ground there was a fierce
struggle with the flames fanned by a stiff
breeze and fed by the tinder-like material of
the structures, which resulted in the total
destruction of the wooden, brick and
stone buildings on the block with the
exception of a two 6tory wooden building
abutting on Kline's brick block, [[which was
badly damaged, and a saloon on the corner
of Seventh and Cedar streets including the
buildings and stables in their rear.
The occupants of the burned district were
people of moderate means who carried light
insurance on their stoves and stock and on
the buildings, which latter as a whole were
of small value, and were mostly
standing on leased ground. As a matter
of fact the structures burned out but com
bined and helped to make unsightly this
great central retail business thoroughfare
of the city and their sudden wiping out can
not be regretted by our citizens at large,
giving way as they will to more durable, sub
stantial and palatial business structures.
The total loss as far as can be ascertained
on buildings, goods and personal effects is
$15,000 with an insurance thereon of about
No. 25}-£, one story frame owned by Stees
Bros., and occupied by A. Vockle as a meat
market and sleeping room. Stees Bros, in
surance with Hughson & Heinenway,
$150; Voekle's loss, $300, insured for $600
tn North American Canadian company.
Vockle made his flight from the building so
quickly that he left 5450 in cash in his vest
under his pillow, which was found intact by
Assistant Chief Hildebrand in the ruins yes
terday, among the scorched and soaked bed
No. 25, one-story frame owned with fix
tures of saloon by Lames & Todd,
and leased by Geo. Olyer. Lames & Todd
have $400 insurance with Hughson & Hem
ingway and their loss is estimated at about
$500. Olyer's loss is said to be $200 on con
tents, but de wa» not to be found yesterday
afternoon and all the information obtained
was from his bar-keeper, Joseph Lalaski.
The proof that the fire orig
inated in this building comes from
several neighbors and by the fact
that the horses in butcher Vochle's stable,
who stood with their heads looking out upon
this building, had their foreheads and nos
trils badly burned and singed and one of
them it is thought will be blinded as the re
sult. Tbju report that these horses were
burned is erroneous.
No. 15, a two story and a half frame, con
siderably damaged in the roof and rear was
owned by John Kline a,nd was occupied by
F. Long for a saloon and dwelling. Loss on
building $1,200 and insured for $900; loss
on contents $400; insured for $1,500. In the
reir of this building was a small stable
owned by Peter Pfeifer, and occupied by
Stephen Barns, of the Market house restau
rant. This was injured to the amount of
$100, and the contents $20; building insured
for $50 and contents $25.
No. 23, one story frame, was owned and
occupied by Martin McNally, and was a but
ter and egg store. Loss on building $300,
and on contents $200; insured for 100.
No. 27, a frame building, owned by Stees
Bros., valued at $500, and insured for $150,
was occupied by Nathan Clark for tne sale
of butter and cheese, whose loss is not
No. 31, one story frame, owned by
Anushinski Bros., and occupied by them as
a clothing store. Loss on building $500, and
on contents $3,000. As their insurance
papers were in an old Detroit 6afe which
went down in the fire the companies in
which it was placed are not yet known.
No. 19. one story frame, owned by Henry
Rochat and occupied by Tom G. Fang as a
Chinese laundry. Loss on building $250
and insured for $250; Fang's loss $400, in
sured for $300.
No. 21, one story frame owned by Henry
Roehat and occupied by Mrs. Kearning for
sale of cigars, confectionery, etc. Loss
on building $200, and insured for $200.
Loss on contents $300 and uninsured.
No. 17, two story frame, owned by Henry
Rochat and occupied by J. McDonald as
Canton tea store. Loss on building $400,
and insurance not ascertained. Loss on
contents $300 and insured for same.
No. 35, one story frame, owned by Henri
etta Keller and occupied by her for sale of
light groceries, cigars, etc. Loss^on build
ing $75 and on contents §35. No. 37, owned
by the same and occupied for the same
business. Loss on building $15 and on
contents $25. No. 33 owned by the same
and occupied by John Woood, shoemaker.
Loss on building $50 and on contents $50,
AVood having no insurance. On these three
frame buildings and the contents in two of
them Miss Keller had a total insurance of
On a stone dwelling in the rear of Nos. 35
and 37, two stories with basement, A. H.
Rogers, the owner's loss, was $1,000, being
insured for the same amount. It was occu
pied by three families, composed of Henrietta
Keller, Mrs. Lynch and a harness maker
named Seeger. Mrs. Keller's loss in furni
ture and clothing was §600, insured for §800,
and the other two occupants lost $100 each
and were uninsured. A money belt

upon it an insurance of $500. No loss on
contents. A stable in the rear of No. 23,
belonging to the same party, was damaged to
the extent of §15. No insurance.
Several buildings owned by occupants
and others were bailt on leased ground from
Stees Bros, and A. H. Rogers.
During the fire several wooden buildings
in the same block and facing on Eght'h and
Cedar streets took fire from flying flaming
brands, but under the watchful eyes of
owners and tenants those fires were short

quite a number of small fires kindled there

There was a faulty discrepancy somewhere
in giving notice to "the lire department ol
this lire, f or from its ap
pearance ten minutes before the
watchman in No. 1 engine house received
the verbal and first alarm given to the de
partment by a policeman it must have been
under way for fully hfteen minutes at least.
Chief Black said yesterday that when a fire is
given from ten to fifteen minutes to get
under headway, that it is not the fault of the
department that fires prove so. serious. One '
minute at the outset, he said, was worth
everything to the department.
In this connection it is stated that Herman
Ragee, of Milwaukee, engaged in building at
Mcrriam park,was detained"there on Monday
night and did not reach the city until 11:40
p. m. He stopped at Union depot ten min
utes, debating whether he would go to bia
hotel or his boarding house, as he was so late
out, and in going out of the depot smelt
smoke. It so attracted him that he went into
the alley in the locality where the fire afterwards
first appeared, where the smell grew
stronger. Bethinking himself that there
was a kitchen and eating bouse in the depot,
he desisted from further search, thinking
the smoke came from cooking, and looking
at his watch aud finding it was ten minutes
to midnight, started for a hotel. The first
telephone alarm that reached central nra
house was at 11:23 a whole half hour later.
There was no alarm sounded yesterday
morning on the Market house bell, and
Chief Black says the first alarm received at
central fire house was from No. 1 hose, and
was sent in precisely at at 2:40 a. m.
In regard to the origin of the fire the chief
says it originated in the front and basement
of the Geo. Olger saloon, No. 25 East
Seventh street, which were saturated with
kerosene, and was the undoubted work of an

Effort of the Trunk Lines to Reduce
I Special TelesTam to the Globe.l
Chicago, June 14.—The misunderstanding
which has for some time existed between the
Trunk lines on emigrant business is on the road
to a prominent settlement. Commissioner Fink
some time ago notified the various steamship
lines that on and after May 12th none of tho
pool lines would allow a commission on emigrant
orders to exceed 10 per cent., one-half of which
should be paid to the local steamship agents
and the remainder be retained by the steamship
lines as a compensation for the work, and to pay
the expenses of maintaining such agencies.
The request was complied with on the part
of but two roads, the others continuing to pay
15 per cent, commissions tothe sub-agents. Re
cently, however, several other lines have been
persuaded to adopt the 5 per cent, commission,
and within a few days it is expected that all will
have come to time.
Owing to the demoralization in ocean emigrant
rates it will be exceedingly difficnlt to enforce
the maintenance of the 5 per cent, commission
on inland business as it is difficult to deteimiue
where the ocean commission ends and the
inland commission begins, many of the ocean
lines having been accustomed to issne through
transportation in the certificate of ocean passage.
The steamship lines do not take kindly to tho
dictation of the trunk line pool, as the bulk of
their emigrant business is consigned directly to
them at the seaboard, the passengers holding
orders on the steamship companies for their rail
road passage inland. United action, however,
on the part of the trunk lines can hold the
steamship lines well in hand, so that it makes
very little difference whether they like it or not.
