Chicago, June 18.—According to popular
opinion each succeeding day on 'change is
the dullest on record. To-day was no ex
ception to the rule. Pork was neither quoted
nor talked about and wheat was not much
better.. Early in the session wheat showed
some strength, but the succeeding hours of
the session demonstrated, that there was noth
ing permanent about it as far as the day's
trade was concerned. There was no feature
in it: There was no evidence that anything
was done outside of the scalping crowd
and the small amount which changed hands
among members of that faction would be
too small to deserve mention or the time re
quired to look it up. The impression is
shared by a good many large dealers that
wheat is low at present figures, and- that it is
aot likely to go lower until the new crop gets
aero. Then even the bulls, many of them,
anticipate a decline. Te most noticable
thing about the markets was the strong posi
tion assumed by corn, which lately has had
no individuality, but move d up and down in
sympathy with wheat. It has been known
for. some days that W. T. Baker & Co. and
David Dows were buying corn. They did so
to day. and it is believed that their principal
aim is to freeze out some large shorts. There
is said to be considerable short corn on the
market, aud the course of the article to-day
indicated that the bulls were working a little
campaign to bring it out.
Holders of wheat received no encourrge
mtnt from the tone of foreign ! advices, the
firmness quoted on spot deliveries in BritisTi
markets being offset by a demand if not
positive weakness in floating cargoes for
near and distant futures. New York quota
tions, although a shade higher, failed to
show sufficient improvement to attract atten
tion. Advices from the winter wheat sec
tion were conflicting, some repre
senting damage from' rust casued
by excessive rains, while others repre
sented the condition of the grain and
extent of the yield fairly satisfactory and
that the weather had undergone a change for
the better. The outside speculative demand,
however, was light, shipping orders moderate
and the small advance secured early was lost
at the close of the regular session. July
opened at 88% c, receded . to 88^'c, at this
point rallied again on fair covering by shorts
and sold back up to the highest price, settling
off and closing at SB}^@BB%c.~o_- the after
noon session wheat was weak and'declined to
a close of. SSJ^c.
Offerings of corn were moderate and specu
lative, and shipping demand fair. The con
tinued low per centage of contract grades in
the arrivals andthe heavy buying of two or
three big operators, with the apparent inten
tion of causing a corner, caused an uneasy
feeling amoung the shorts, who covered more
freely, and in their anxiety to fill their con
tracts bid prices ujj %@%c on yesterday's
last sales. July opened at 56)^c, sold at
5696.3.57 and closed on the regular ses
sion at 5G%@57c. On the afternoon board
a weaker feeling prevailed aud the close was
at 50'-Jc. 77-.':
Oats were quiet and showed little change
from yesterday. Speculative trading, in fu
tures was moderate, shipping demand fair
and receipts larger. July closed at '&2%c.
Pork was almost neglected. A few trades
in settlement were made for June, July and
August at $19.05, and for year a sale was re
ported at §13.00. Aside from these trans
actions there was nothing done, and at the
close the prices named were the- nominal
Lard was less active and scarcely a moder
ate business was transacted. During the
best portion of the day the market in fact
was quiet, though prices were held steady,
and at the close stood at about yesterday's
range at 1 o'clock. In the speculative
movement July, August and September
were the only futures that attracted any at
tention. July closed at firstname.lastname@example.org%.
Short ribs were in good demand for cash,
but speculative trading was dull and the
closing 10c lower thau at 1 o'clock yesterday,
or ..8.29Jemail@example.com for July.
The cattle market opened quiet and con
tinued slow until late in the forenoon, when
there was a considerable spurt of activity.
Big heavy cattle were slow, as there were no
export orders, and values were generally re
ported about 10c lower. Common grass cat
tle were more plentiful and they were gen
erally quoted 10c • lower. Distillery stock
sold at previous prices as also did • fair to
good butchers' stock, but old cows and lean
and scraggy bulls sold lower on account of
the big supply of Texans. There seems a
better demand for stockers and breeder's, but
prices are ruling considerably lower than
heretofore, especially on light, little stockers.
The hog market opened rather slow, with
sellers asking s@loc advance, and at this
advance there were a few loads sold in each
division to speculators. . Regular buyers,
however, held off, so that the spurt of activity
and strength only lasted a short time. At
first the receipts were estimated at 25,000,
but it soon became apparent they were largely
overestimated. About the middle of the
forenoon the market became very dull.
Holders began to see that packers had been
buying freely, about 4,000 in two
days, and were ■ pretty well
filled np for the day. . Then
the weather was hot and packers could not
crowd their business. Yet, taken altogether
there was a fair market and a general ad
vance of 5c on nearly all sorts, the market
The very light receipts of sheep begin to
tell on valvues, as there is a good deal more
j strength and a more active inquiry this week.
There are fair orders for good export sorts the
buyers being willing to pay .5 per 100
pounds for good, clean unbred' ewes or
others that are fat and will weigh 120 pounds
and upward, 500 or 600 of such are just now
wanted, and any one having such a lot had
better communicate with some commission"
firm if they are for sale at the price. •;: .7. ■
McCormick, Kennett & Day say: "Unless
we have wet, : unfavorable weather during
the harvest which is just commencing, lower
pricßS will result. We advise caution in fol
lowing the short side of wheat at ' BSc, as any
serious damage to the growing crop would
cause a big ; advance. Outside orders are
-: scarce and s complaints of the ' dullness of
. business universal. There is talk of wheat
being out of condition in some of our eleva
tors, but we only mention it as a rumor.

' New York, June IS.—There was nothing
encouraging for holders of stocks- the
market this morniug. A drive was made at
the Vanderbilts the moment business opened,
and Central & Hudson and Lake Shore each
dropped 1 per cent. Delaware & Lackawanna
was treated in the • same ■ way. Northern
Pacific was quite active and varied but a
trifle, awaiting the result of the Boston meet
ing. The market, was lifeless during the
greater part of the day. The dealings were
confined to the room traders, who seemed
satisfied with fractional profits.. Missouri
Pacific was marked up to 92 by the Gould
brokers and S. V. White was credited with
bolstering Deleware & Lackawanna. As on
yesterday money '• properties were entirely
neglected. The market hardened a trifle as
the day advanced, and in the last hour some
Central & Hudson was bought in under the
rule for delinquents. Lake Shore continued
weak up to the end, selling at ,Sl%c as the
gong struck. Prices as a general thing
show but little change from those current
twenty-four hours ago. St. Paul earnings
during the second week of June decreased
about §25,000. The coal combination, it
was stated, would advance rates 15 to 25
cents a ton. The day closed upon about as
dull and insipid a market as has been wit
nessed in some time. ; .

Faribault, June IS.Threatening clouds •
and light showers this morning caused many
to fear that the festivities of the day would
be interrupted, especially as the principal
events of the festal occasions were to take
place out of doors. The arrangements for
the celebration of Bishop Whipple's twenty
fifth anniversary of accession to the Episco
pate, were very elaborate and by 9 o'clock
the . weather was so fine that the affair was
preceded with according to the propramme.'
Shortly after the hour named, a' procession
was formed, consisting of a com
mittee of twenty citizens, the city
council, the Faribault guards and band,
and a great number of citizens and visitors,
and proceeded to the bishop's residence,
where he, accompanied by Mayor C. L. Low
ell and Gordon E- Cole the orator of the day,
was received and escorted in a barouche to
the public park opposite the cathedral. The
pretty park was delightfully inviting, the
drops of the recent showers still glistening
on the trees, and the smooth, well-kept lawn
beneath the young maple grove gleaming in
the filtered light of the now bright sun. The
handsome and massive new fountain sent
foith a ioyous spray, and hundreds of ele
gantly costumed ladies added brightness to
the charming scene.
At 10 o'clock the graceful pavilion was oc
cupied by the honored bishop and a number
of representative men, aud fronting it were
several hundred chairs filled with ladies.
There were at least 1,000 people on the
grounds. The band edified the audience
with choice selections, until, Mayor Lowell,
stepping to the front, pronounced a hearty,
cordial and eloquent address of welcome to
the many visitors, according them the free
dom of the city, and briefly stating the ob
ject for which they were gathered. He closed
by introducing Gen. Gordon E. Cole.
Mr.' Cole began his-address with a glowing
panegeric upon the self-sacrificing pioneers
who carried Christian civilization into the wilder
ness in the early history of the nation, the story
of whose deeds live only embalmed in the fading
memory of Christian men and the pages of the
historian. Cut to you, sir, he continued,' ad
dressing Bishop Whipple, the auspicuous for
tunes of your time have awarded .a nobler and
more enduring fame: Twenty-five years ago you
came among the warring nations of the Dakotah
and the Ojibway to take up a career upon a rude
and barbarous frontier, which shall end
only with your life; ' but the happy
results of which shall endure 'so long as
Christianity itself. Baring your breast to the
perils of an inclement climate, braving the dan
gers of savage malignity, disregarding the dis
couragement of skeptical friends and defying
the fierce opposition of interested foes, you be
came the constant and persevering defender of
the untutored*savage for many years, to (the
frauds of designing traders and dishonest agents,
to the licentiousness which demoralized his social
life, to the vendors of the deadly fire water which
still further brutalized and degraded him, you op
posed your single voice. You found those who
are now your loviug and happy wards sunk in
depths of barbarism, degredation and misery.
Hunger, disease, drunkenness and licentiousness
had reduced the remnants of once powerful
tribes to a condition below barbarism
itself, all those evils fled before your benificient
administrations, colonies of Christian Indians
sprang up on every reservation, the toll of the
chapel bell, supplanting the muffled drum of the
medicine man, called in mellow tones in every
agency to the Christian's devotions; the . thrift-;
less habits of wandering tribes were abandoned
for fixed habitations and cultivated farms; . the
naked savage was clothed in the white man's
garb, and subsisted upon the proceeds of his
own honest labor. The chiefs sent their sons
to yonr seminary to be educated, and many
thriving Indian missions are winning souls from
barbarism to Christiancy under the charge of In
dian deacons, reared and fitted for holy calling.
Long before the outbreak of 1863, when the
fruits of long years of wrong were wreaked upon
the defenceless heads of our innocent frontiers
men, and gentle mothers and innocent babes ex
piated in one fell holocaust the accumulated
injuries of generations of fraud and misrule, the
ancient feuds of these contending nations had
faded away before your successful efforts. Those
who chanced to meet the band of Christian
Indians who came, last week as '. delegates
over ■' a ... territory larger than Rice
county, among the pine woods of the
north, could form some faint idea of the wonders
which the quarter of a century, of your episco
pate has wrought in this single branch. Ani
mated not by the pardonable partiality of a
friend and . townsman who has witnessed all
whereof he speaks, but only by a desire for truth
and justice, I voice a sentiment which will find
response in thousands of loving hearts, not alone
in this country, but wherever the Christian's God
is worshipped, (for no more contracted boundary.
circumscribes your fame,) that the name of El
liott must no longer be suffered to shine on our
historic pages as the sole or greatest apostle to
the Indians, but first on the tablets on which
are inscribed the sufferings, the sacrifices
and the triumphs of that glorions apostle
ship must and will appear, there to shine
on so long as time shall last, the name which we
to-day delight to honor, the fame which we are
here assembled to commemorate. To this you
have dedicated, reverend and venerated; sir, you
have dedicated the best years of your life to the
red man; you have given your health, your
youth, your strength; but nobly have you been
repaid. The thousands of voices, which, in all
the savage dialects of the border, make the
prairie and the forest vocal , with blessings on
yonr head. The joy which contemplation of a
good work done and successfully done in the alle
viation of human misery always brings its own
exceeding great reward. xAx.'A'X -_■../- .
But not alone among the ignorant and untu
tored savages have your victories been wrought.
You came upon this frontier, and you found
scarcely the vestige of the church, which it may
be almost said was founded in the wilderness by
your unaided efforts, and out of which, under
your ecclesiastical care, has grown in a quarter of
a centnry one of the most prosperous dioceses of
the American church. The name of Heber, the
loved missionary bishop of the English . church,
is remembered more by his glorious poetry and
the grand old anthem which has become a house
hold word wherever the English ritual is celebra
ted, than by his successes as a missionary. Be
ginning in the feeble infancy of our state, be
fore the age of railroads or telegraphs,
Your footsteps led the way of the emigrant
wagon through forest and prairie, and wherever
the early hamlets rose there side .by side with
the school house rose the mission chapel. Of the
long list of communicant? which now grace the
rolls of our churches, by far the larger number
came not here churchmen, but have been won by
your ministrations and those of your faithful
clergy, emulous of your example, from those to
whom the sweet ritual of our communion was an
unknown tongue. The rapid advancement of
Minnesota from a howling wilderness to one of
the most prosperous of the band of common
wealths which cluster in the Mississippi valley
has had no parallel in.the annals of colonization;
but the church . over, which you preside, has,
guided by your wise and faithful councils, kept
equal footstep with the state until the history of
Minnesota to-day is the history of its unparalleled
But perhaps the most striking of the triumphs
which have distinguished and adorned your ca
reer has been the noble educational institutions
which your labors have founded, and the liberali
ty of your friends, some of whom are with us In
person to-day, and all, I am assured, in spirit,
have so magnificently - endowed. In 11800 you
found here in about equal proportions the tepees
of the Dakotas, the wigwams of the Winnebagoes
and the . log cabins *of the first settlers, inter
spersed with a few small basswood frames. Not
a brick or stone building existed. These bluffs,
now crowned with your noble edifices, and smil
ing 'neath the skill of the landscape gardener,
were clothed with dense and unbroken forests.
A one-story building, now used I believe, for a
blacksmith's shop on . Fourth street, was the
only temple of learning, one small wooden
church- the . only '. religious ' edifice.
You build, as yon have often said, upon faith and
indeed it was a faith which could almost I remove
mountains only that could have wrought such
miracles in stone as now crown the beauteous
heights. -We read in song and story of the labors
of the gentleman and Alladan's wonderful lamp,
but no marvels gleam -in the pages of oriental
romance which exceed those • which yonr : magic
wand, aided by the generosity of friends, than
whom more or better or truer no man ever had,
has summoned forth from the forrest and the
gurry, the lovely views, the park-like lawns and
j rustling groves of Shatuck, j adorned .by;, vases,
flowers and statuary, the generous gifts of taste
ful friends, the elegant memorial chapel, that
gem of architectural art, a monument of ■ love,! a
royal gift, which has linked the name of' the
generous lady who gave it with that of our good
bishop in the love and esteem of all oar citizens.

generosity founded shall stand embalmed in '.the
hearts of Minnesotians, as it long has been.- in
that of every son and daughter of New England,
Seabury hall, the bishop's venture | of faith,' the
gift of his loyal friends in his own diocese; all
these will with every . succeding \ year,'; as . they
send out their graduates upon . their *'; mission of
life,' send with them the enduring mementoes of
the loving hearts which promply responded to his
appeals, entwined with' those of • the Christian
pastor who could find time among his other soul
engrossing occupations to rear ; these enduring
monuments of his labor.'., ."' _•'. ; ".•
. The name of the athenian • statesman who
adorned the acropol with the graceful facade of
the Parthenon has reached us from out the dim
twilight of almost forgotten history; but small
indeed is the debt which humanity owes to . the
-founder of a heathen temple compared with that
to him under whose auspices i three magnifiennt
temples of learning have sprung from the virgin
soil of a wilderness, to send forth "an ever swell
ing tide of liberal culture through the long eons
of time, during which our posterity shall possess
and enjoy these seats, made beautiful by their
presence. To few men, right reverend sir, have
so many golden opportunities for great things
been vouchsafed, noneon (I say it with no savor
of flattery) have they been so worthily bestowed.
Gen. Cole had proceeded but a few mo
ments with his eloquent address when the
elements showed symptoms of insubordina'
tiou, and the audience hastened to the ca
thedral near by, where speech was com
pleted. The venerable bishop, who is sel
dom overcome by any circumstances, and
who always seems to have just the proper
language and sentiment ready, for any and
all occasions, was so affected by the hearty
and lovinj; ovation ,accorded him, that he
found it difieult to give: expression to the
feelings of his heart and it was. some time
before he could collect .himself: sufficient to
reply. He made a telling address, how
ever, crediting . the clergy- for much assis
tance in his work, thanking: the people
of Faribault for their generous and hearty,
support, claiming that he could not have
accomplished a fraction of what he had but
for the aid and sympathy of all the people of
his dioceses, both high and low.' '
