Chicaoo,'June- Weakness and dullness
mm up the, situation on 'change to-day. Trading
was very moderate, and all speculative articles
.re weak at a lower range of prices. There
was in fact nothing in the general character of
the reports from other markets to encourage
buying, and the situation was aggravated. by a
further severe break in stocks, accompanied by
reports of additional failures in Kew York.
These reports rendered operators conservative
in their movements, and there was a general
disposition to go slow. The shorts were also dis
posed to give distant futures the preference, the
steady reduction stocks of contract grades of
grain rendering those who have contracts for
July wheat anxious to transfer them sufficiently
far ahead to enable them to fill them
from the new crop, many of them . fearing
that the stocks will soon be reduced to a volume
that will enable the bulls to give the shorts a
?harp twist, provided they would get full prices
for near futures. But the chances for such a
turn in the market are materially lessened by
the rapidity with which the contracts are cor
nered when the bears see the slightest chance
against them. About the only feature in to-day's
business was an effort to break the provision
market. During a part of the session quite a
lively trade was done in ribs and lard. Nat
Jones is said to have sold large quantities of
these articles for the sole purpose of bringing
down prices. Whoever it was their success was
not very marked. A slight decline resulted in
the articles named, but pork remained steady at
about $19.50 for July.
In the wheat market the free outward move
ment of the grain compared with receipts
was aloat the only sustaining feature,
cables quoting Fnglish markets dull and weak,
and Xew York advices showing a shade lower
prices. The demand was small, outside of buy
ing orders being light and market from the open
iii-: to close was languishing and the feeling
heavy. Leading longs were sellers, and among
them being Lester, Schwartz, Spruance, Orr,
Dews and McCormick, Kennett & Day, while
shorts and scalpers bought in small lots. July
opened at 87 % c, soid down to 87__c, up to 88__c,
and the declined to 87;_,c, and closed on the reg
ular board at 87?.£<gi87._c. Tra ling on the after
noon board was the largest of the day, the longs
unloading freely. The feeling was weak and
July declined to a close of BG?^c.
Corn was quiet and weaker, mainly in sympa
thy with other articles, and in response to un
improved foreign and eastern quotations. July
opened at 50% c, sold up -to sGs_x, again weak-
ened during the last hours of the session, and
declined on fair offerings to 50.._ c, closing tame
at that figure on the regular board, and at 56c on
the afternoon board.
Oats were weak, and a shade lower, with only
a moderate volume of trading, and offerings fair,
the arrivals again being large.
Pork was dull and nominal, and qnotably 10c
lower on the regular board, and 5c lower on the
Lard was weak under free selling by longs,
who were not disposed to hold longer in view of
the present large production, and moderate de-
mand for consumption. It opened 10c lower at
7.92J4c for July, weakened on free selling, which
failed to meet a responsive demand and closed at
7.GO@.7.__'_ on the regular board and 10c lower
on the afternoon.
Short ribs were more active and declined 224
("? 25c on the regular board and 10<_.12!4c addi
tional in the afternoon, the last quotations of the
day being at $7.97.. for July and SB.IO for Au-
gust, against $8.35 and $8.42 }£ respectively yes-
Under the light receipts and a better order de-
mand for shipping cattle, the market generally
ruled active, and prices were a strong 10c per
100 higher on the best corn fed cattle, regaining
all the loss of yesterday. Grass cattle also sold
a shade stronger, and butchers' stock was iv
good demand. There was a fair movement in
stockers and feeders, but light, little stockers
are selling at low prices. Range cattle continue
to arrive freely, about 50 cars being on the mar-
The hog market opened and ruled rather quiet.
A few early sales were made at about yesterday's
closing prices, but later there was a general de-
cline of a strong 5c per 100, many lots selling
0c lower, and at the decline there was only a
fair demand until the down town markets opened.
Then there was considerable activity. There was
a good demand for all the fresh receipts, with a
slight advance on the best.
J. W. Ramsey & Co. say: "We are inclined
to look for easier markets unless some shipping
demand turns up."-
W. 11. Minor & Co. say: -'We cannot see any-
thing to change wheat at even the present prices,
and it looks considerably lower. Reports from
the growing crop continue most favorable, and
within six weeks we have every reason to look
for a liberal movement of the new crop. We
consider the deferred options in corn safe to sell
at about present prices. We cannot see any
good reason, with splendid crop prospects before
us, for year selling at 49.4 c and September at
67.ic, or about 8c premium. It also strikes us,
with low prices of wheat and oats prevailing, and
without serious damage to the growing crops,
that 40c would not be considered high for year

New York, June .—The market has been
weak, particularly for Lake Shore, New York
Central and Northwestern. A good deal of long
stock has been sold lately, and to-day traders
have helped the Delaware. Missouri Pacific
weakened this afternoon on a report that its com-
promise with, the government would not be
allowed to stand. Lackawanna and Missouri
Pacific have been held against the current
Humors in connection with the solvency of Com-
modore . Garrison have helped the weakness.
The fact appears .." to be that railroad paper en-
dorsed by him and others has been allowed to go
to protest probably for the purpose of holding all
the endorsers equally. General Manager Clark,
of the Union Pacific, has resigned. Mr. Calloway
of the Grand Trunk, will temporarily take his
place. The question of paying July interest on
- Texas Pacilic bonds was deferred from to-day to
Saturday. J Louisville & Nashville and New Or-
leans & Mobile bonds are offered at 75, with no

bear element this morning, and Central _. Hud

Pacific, on its remarkable chowiug, declined -to
36JiC, and Delaware & Lackawanna had a hard
time of it also. Most of these stocks were scarce
in the loan market, but this appeared to cut no
figure on sustaining them. No one wanted them,
and when such is the case they sell for what they
will bring. The report of the failure of a promi
nent capitalist helped to unsettle matters. Chi
cago, Burlington & Quincy was quiet and weak,
as was also Rock Island. Business," what little
there was, centered in the Vanderbilts, the
Grangers, Union Pacific, and Dela
ware & Lackawanna, and the activity
in them was caused by free unloading of long
stock. There was absolutely no demand, except
from the shorts who covered on the declines.
About two dozen of the . light weight properties
failed to show up at all. The last end of.the
session was even worse than the first. There
was a very weak feeling in the Northwestern.
The balance, with few exceptions, were very frail

The banquet to the state medical society was
given in the large dinning' hall of the Sawyer
house and was the most elegant affair that has
occurred of the kind in this city for a long time.
The phis-dans of Stillwater who gave the ban
quet to the society show that they j know what
the honorable profession to which they- belong
should have. Mine Host Lowell excelled
any'" .former effort and kept up the
good reputation of his well known house. The
bill of fare contained every delicacy of the sea
son, whilst fish, flesh and fowl were contributed
iv endless variety. There were three long tables
beautifully, decorated with flowers and fruits. i
The attendance of the medical profession was
very large, and a number of ladies graced the
banquet with their presence. .

Stillwater, June 19.—The Rev. Dr. Car
roll in his reply to the clergy was exceeding-
ly happy and hit the cloth with an inspirins;
hand. He paid an eloquent panegyric upon
the great names in medicine, law and divin
ity, and by his masterly handling of his sub-
ject kept the audience spell bound, •". The
legal profession was responded toby Judge
McCluer, in an able speech, who "compli
mented the body on their successful gather-
ing and gave his opinion as to the result of
their difficult profession, and that all should
work together. He alluded strongly to ex-
Senator D. M. Sabin was called upon by
Dr. Millard, and in reply he said he was
surprised, as he had no notice of being called
on to make a speech. He had fulfilled the
first part of the programme, and he would
do a little towards the second part. He was
not in the senate much and could not speak
much upon that, and, not having read
Blame's work he could not say much as to
the workings of the senate. He hit the P. P.
pretty hard on the way it had gone for
him. He would not say how he became a
senator cr how that any of the others ever
got there. He wished to serve this state
efficiently, and that they would find that they
had not made a great mistake .in sending
him. He thanked them for the invitation in
being present, and wished them all to the
best that the city of Stillwater could produce.;
The college of medicine of the state of
Minnesota was responded to by Dr. Hewitt,
of Red Wing, who claimed that they were
prior to any other. That the college should
be an examining one and be a supervising
one, and it ! has . done , much .good
in making all colleges in the state equal. It
is the first of the kind in the ' union, and
other states are clamoring for the "same kind
of a central board. • ;- '": • x■':■_ '
Dr. Hunter, of t Minneapolis,' responded
for the Minnesota College hospital, and pre-
sented her claims favorable.
Dr. Stone, of St. Paul, replied to the ladies,
which he did in a humorous manner, and his
ill luck in becoming the possessor of some
one's heart. He spoke of the ladies of Still-
water, where jhe had his first honors, and
their kindness to him.
The medical practice act was responded to
by Dr. Davis, of Jlunkato, and Dr. Roper, of
Brainerd, to modern medicine and" surgery
In the passing of ; the radical practice act
in this state, Senator Sabin was one of.those
who was most active in its passage when in
the legislature in this state. - The other sub-
jects were given full ventilation, and at an
early hour this I morning the festival broke
up. all pleased that they had been/present.
It was a most successful: banquet, and the
physicians of Stillwater deserve the " most
hearty thanks. for . being the means of so
much reciprocal enjoyment. 7-

Watektowx, D. T., June 19.—The night at
Columbia, the gem of the land of plenty, was
quietly passed, and all were up in the morning
with the lark, and after a hearty breakfast at the
Grand were waited upon by Mayor James, and
Aldermen Andy Stone, J. R. James, I. H. Town-
send, C. G. Meredith, A. Loomis, Wm: Davidson
and ' citizens J. A. Sullivan, C.
51. Lyons and others, and the members of
the party were driven about the town, and a most
favorable impression was made at the steamboat
landing. The 200-barrel mill of Townsend &
Co., and the elegant school house were seen with
surprise and delight. At no town so far has
been seen so much farm machinery, indicating a
farming country behind the town looking to it
for supplies. The citizens of Columbia, in addi
tion to their business estaolishments, have an
aggregate of 7,000 acres of wheat, flax, barley,
oats and corn. Within sight of the city were
thirty teams engaged in breaking, and this en-
ergy will make Columbia truly the gem of the
land of plenty,
AN ACCIDENT AND AN INCIDENT. -i~.!*
Last night the dam at Townsend's mill washed
ont, a seeming calamity, as it controlled the Jim
river for twenty-five miles up stream, but among
such a people it will not be a permanent damage,
as it will be at once rebuilt larger and better than
before, and so form abenefit instead of a disaster.
The incident proved a St. Paul benefit on the
spot, as Robinson & Cary sold the mill company
an engine, so that water and steam will be at
their future command.
At nine sharp Alderman VanSlyke took ■ com
maud ofthe column "and away it marched to the
cars amid the cheers of the good people of Co-
lumbia. The first hour of the day took the par
ty back over yesterday's route to Redfield. At
Aberdeen the excursion was met by Wednesday
morning's Globe, and soon every man was ab
sorbed in its pages and with special interest in
the excursion report. This number of the
Globe was the first and only St. Paul paper seen
since outward bound, and to men habituated to
' morning papers it was a bonanza that was ap
At Redfield a three hours' stop was made and
the excursion taken in charge by a committe of
reception, composed of J. A. Wilson, D. N.
Hunt, F. A. Dawes, D. R. Miller, C. J. Howard,
F. S. Hudson, J. J. Hough, and a committee on
carriages composed of J. S. Ferris and Albert
Cole. Seventy-five carnages were provided and
the party was driven through the principal streets,
passing the Redfield city flouring mill, having a
200 barrel capacity, and costing 5_5,000, the
$5,000 . school house, churches and business
houses. A square was formed at the junction of
Humboldt avenue and Holmes street, where an
address of welcome was made by Mayor Hunt,
standing in his carriage.to which President Finch
Mayor Nash, of Huron, was called out, and
spoke eloquently of the royal good time the ex-
cursion was producing, congratulating the peo
ple and the .Jobbers' union that thus early in,
their career these young cities were recognized
by the business men of the metropolis of the
great northwest. He took that occasion to thank
the jobbers for their call at Huron, where no
public speaking was induged in.
After music by the band, Mr.Tallmadge briefly
thanked the assembled Refieldians for their re-
_ R. S.Hodloy, Esq., spoke briefly, predictinga
future city at Redfield, when it becomes the
capital of the new state of southern Dakota,
when the St. Paul of to-day, now the great mer
cantile emporium of this great northwest, should
become what Chicago now is, and Redfleld shall
be as St. Paul is to-day.
. - The president then called for cheers for Red-
field and Huron, and the jobbers were similarly
complimented. All the streets of the city were
decorated with flags, and across Main street was
hung a banner, "Welcome to the St. Paul Job-
bers'union." At the store of J. D. Young &
Co. were shown sixty-day barley four feet" and
one inch high, wneat, oats, and all the vegetables
matured for table use, which were planted April
25 and May 15. After this inspection the party
was driven to the top of capitol hill, a sightly
eminence between I the Jim and Turtle, from
which could be seen north, south, east and west
nine —Inlaire and Crandon, nine miles
away; Frankfort, ten miles; Doland, twenty
miles; Ashton, ten miles; Athol, twelve miles;
Redfield, two miles, and thirty-seven miles to the
east the outlines of the Coteaux. The hill is
covered with flowers, and each man soon decorat-
ed himself with a button-hole bouquet. . The
music sounded splendidly upon the hill, and the
band played its liveliest measures.
OPEN AIB ORATORY,
. Calling for order, President Finch said that on
this capital day, on Capitol hill, a capital oppor
tunity was offered to some capital goodfellow to
make a capital speech to a capital congregation,
and he called for N. P. Bromley to respond.
This gentleman bade the jobbers welcome to
Redfield and Capitol hill. It seemed to him the
St. Paul jobbers were combining business with
pleasure, and he was pleased to see the interest
they manifested in the Jim river valley. St.
Paul, he said, was entitled to their trade, and it
would be the fault of the jobbers if they did not
get it.' The people of the valley wanted to trade
with St. Paul, and if the jobbers would see fair
play on the part of the three railroads leading
from them to St. Paul they could get it. The
speaker was pleased to see many young business
men in the company who had cast their lot with
the northwest, among whom were his friends
Kavanagh and Kelly. It was good to see the
iCoung men. getting to the
front. They were the men to realize to value of
opportunities with the courage to grasp them,
and the Jim river valley was the boss agricultural
section unsurpassed by any in the range of
County Commissioner O. S. Brsslord spoke a
few moments. He said that Capitol hill was dedi
cated for a special purpose, and the company
were resting on the spot destined to be the future
capital of the new state of southern Dakota. St.
Paul, he said, had the opportunity to exceed Chi
cago by cultivating and securing the trada that
naturally was theirs, and proper attention to it
would secure that financial advancement.
- C. T. Howard said that in every fibre the peo
ple were in sympathy with the aspirations, and
intentions of St. Paul, and the visit of to-day had
laid the foundation for future mutual relations of
pleasure and profit.
. As the last speaker concluded the special train
of Manager Hewitt, of the western, was
seen approaching, and a committee was sent to
flag it down, with an invitation to join the com-
pany at capitol hill. The train paused, but Mr.
Hughitt was obliged to present his compliments
aud regrets that pressing business denied him the
pleasure.of stopping. The jobbers' special pulled
up at. the foot . of the hill, Conductor Rowley
cried all aboard, and made time to Frankfort,
where a . moment's stop was made,"
and shortly after the excursion halted at
• DELAXD. ' 7.7' .7
I At this station a very fine assortment of ' nat-
tive and tame grass germs and tree growths were
shown,". heads of grass in full bloom, wheat
heading out, a cottonwood tree twenty months
old twelve feet high, and barley and rye in the
head. The train pulled out with ; cheers for the
Jobbers' Union, which was returned with a will.
To much time had been consumed at Redfleld
that only brief, . uneventful stops ; were made at
Raymond, Clark and Henry, and haste was made
i to reach Watertown by 4 o'clock.

wereth; words: '. "Welcome, : St.Paul." The
tables were decorated with flowers, beside each
plate wan a button-hole bouquet and the feast
comprised every table delicacy that may be
named to tempt hungry men. Some twenty
five beautiful ladles .. were in . at
tendance to serve the city's guests, and a more
graceful banquet occasion has not been seen in all
the experience of the St. Paul jobbers. '-_"•'■
Mayor Thomas welcomed the visitors on be
half of the -young city, whose years could be
counted, upon the fingers of one hand, and won
derful as had been its , growth, its stability was
still more wonderful, for the farming country
tributary to it was far in advance -of the town.
Watertown ships . more wheat- than any other
point in the territory. New lite and vigor is be
ing impaated by-two . new railroad. lines to be
opened before the snow flies, making direct con
nection with the trunk '. lines ] for St. Louis and
the coal fields of lowa. The future of Watertown
was assured and years were few when its popula
tion would be counted by thousands, where now
it numbers hundreds, when St. Paul and Water
town would supply all the goods .the northwest
country needs. Thrice welcome were the jobbers
of St. Paul.
President Finct gracefully acknowledged. the
welcome, saying that since the delicacies with
which the tables were loaded had been discussed,
some of the eloquent speakers of the party
would be called out. The blessing upon the oc
casion was fervently pronounced . by Rev. G. S.
Updyke. After the banquet had been served Mr
Tallmadge called out Alderman Van Slyke, and
briefly expressed the glad and grateful surprise
and appreciation of the visiting party. ' 7"-..7
[ Mr. ! Tallmadge proposed the sentiment, the
ladies of Watertown— all the beautiful things
the St. Paul jobbers have seen upon the excur
sion the ladies of Watertown surpass them all
and called upon Judge Chandler to respond.
The judge said it was due the company to ex
plain the job the St. Paul jobbers had put. up on
him, and humorously alluded to being hailed the
Vanderbilt of the party, to the deposing of Finch
at Aberdeen,as president, his unanimous election
and his own displacement by Finch, who claimed
an unfair advantage during his absence looking
after the welfare of the party. Why all these
honors were thrust upon him he did not. know,
but he warned the peop.e to look out for the jolly
jobbers. . He had happily renewed some
old acquaintances here, old friends he had known
when a Spartan, and if he only had the eloquence
of Charley Williams, he would be too happy to
pay its highest tribute to - the ladies of Water
town, God bless them all. :' The mistake of his
life had been that he did not locate at Water
town. His weight of ' years and gray hair must
be his protection, but he appealed to . the beauti
ful ladies of Watertown to deal J mercifully with'
the estimable young gentiemeh of' the jobbers,
for the sake of the other _. girls they had left be
hind them. . [Rousing cheejrs.^vT..;'--
Hon. C. G. Williams followed with an address
of impassioned eloquence, to which nothing but
a verbatim report can do any justice. He spoke
with pride of the young city, the five-year-old
child of the prairies, and to receive a visit from
such a body of representative men as tbe St.
Paul jobbers, who figuratively boxed the compass
to reach it, stirred her ambition and gratified her
pride. He paid a tribute to the lovely ladies of
Watertown, and dared any to say there was a
homely one among them and show his cour
age by picking her out. [Cheers.]
He pointed out A the possibility
of intimate relations of business with St. Paul,
which rested with the business meu of that city
to deside, received and maintain with an elo
quence that thrilled. He dwelt upon the in
justice of congress in denying Dakota admission
as a state, when before it appealed for statehood
it had a population greater than the nine states
of Delaware, Gerogia, Vermont, Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois, Colorado, Nevada and Nebraska all com-
bined, but Dakota could wait. The glorions
zenobia of the west wonld not be denied justice
for all time. In conclusion he heartily welcomed
the St. Paul visitors with a hearty God bless you
that brought every man to his feet and filled the
hall with deafening cheers. .'■ ..'.'.'
Carriages were now announced for a . drive
through the beautiful city and to Lake Kampes-
ka, four miles away. As the excursion takes
leave of Watertown it parts with Conductor Row-
ley, who is a gentleman every inch of him, and
is placed in charge of ' Conductor O. Reed, for-
merly publisher of the Door county, (Wis.,) Ad-
vocate, and a princely good fellow he is.
While, the gentlemen of the party are wholly un-
bent from the rigidity of business restraint and
are as frolicsome as boys again, it is notable that
nothing transpires that would be out of place in
the most refined drawing room of genteel so
ciety. '~--AA^.-/Y'x .AAA
The drive to Lake Kampeska was one of the
most enjoyable incidents of the trip! It is a
beautiful sheet of water eight miles long, one
and a half to three miles wide, filled with the
finest fish ever seen in ; water, surrounded with
the most picturesque scenery, fleets of row
boats, club honse, etc. The poplation of Water
town is 3,000.' The city is elegantly laid ont, its
business blocks are handsomely built, and the
private residences many of. them are especially
fine. There are six banks, a steam-feeding roller
mill, with a capacity of 250 barrels per day, a
twenty thousand dollar court house, an opera
house, five school houses, five churches, and all
the trades and professions are fully represented.'
This spring 0,000 maple jj and box elder trees
from Mankato have been set out about the city.
There are two fine parks, with 700 ' trees each,
and a beautiful cemetery, with 700 trees. 7 A
drive about the environs of the city shows the
best grain seen on the trip. At "Redfield and
Watertown Mr. Tallmadge was given samples of
cereals, which he will show at the chamber of
commerce next Monday.
Mayor W. R. Thomas and S. .B. Shedon, of
Watertown, and J. W. Smith, banker, of Huron,
have joined the party for the remainder of the
trip.' ' - .... ~'.:."j7 AvX'X
A Good Word for Heron Lake. .-: .
[Special Correspondence of | the St. Paul Globe.]
_ Hero..- Lake, June i 18.—The jobbers of St.
Paul deserve the thanks of the people in the great
blue grass region jof Minnesota for their trip
through it. :No do^.bt [ the St. Paul merchants
will get much trade from it that will .do them
good, but they will also have seen just what this
southwest is, and very many people will read of
their tour who would not read a circular sent by
land agents.: At Heron Lake the merchants had
a glorious reception, and if ' we may judge by the
faces and round chubby corporations of many or
most of your leading- jobbers, the trade is salu
brious and pleasant to them. I think as an exhi
bition of the advantages of this,our state.it would
even pay to send out for six'weeks, this- whole
train, for mit sense, dress, speech.wit and wis
dom, commend me to the St. Paul jobbers. But
Mr. Editor, a word in your ear, private and con-
fidential, of course; The men '. who came to - see
the blue grass region do not live on grass. - They
know just what is good,*.- for a more dainty
spread of victuals, etc., you never saw.' than the
dining car presented. But solidly, the merchants
have a grand idea in: view to build': up St. • Paul
and honestly.to bnild up this locality. That our
great western cities may thus be built . is the ear-
nest wish of the residents of ■ this part, '. and I of ■
none more than .. . Truly Yours, •-'.. 7-.

THE UNION PACIFIC.
President Adams Says the "Wall Street
• ?,,. Rumors are Untrue. .
Boston, June 19.—President Charles
Francis Adams, of the Union Pacific, denies
the report from Wall street that he has dis-
covered or broken up and conspiracy where-
by the Union Pacific company had been
robbed. The statement that General.' Man-
ager Clark of the Union Pacific, has resigned
and that his resignation had been accepted,
is denied by the president and vice-president
of the road. . Clark intimated when the re-
cent changes were determined upon that his
resignation was ready if desired, but he will
remain in charge at Omaha as Ions; as his
health will permit. The Union , Pacific rail-
road company has legal advice that I congress
cannot compel it to take out patents
and pay taxes upon its lands, and it
therefore will take no such action. Presi
dent Adams says of the reports of his inter-
view with the secretary |of the interior,
"there is absolutely no truth in the stories;
that I protested against the government re-
port. 1 I did nothing of the kind. The rail-
road commissioner mentioned to the secre
tary of the interior j that I was in town and
the latter sent for me. We -had a pleasant
chat for ten minutes. No reference was
made to the report, but the reporters jumped
to the conclusion that I was protesting
against . something." The report contains
some unpleasant facts but nothing more
than everyone knows, and no exception can
be taken to it by the company. The govern-
ment was given every 1 facility to get at the
facts, and all of this talk about strictures aud
inferences and protests, is nonsense. The
report makes no charge against the company
but simply states the facts, which have long
been public. .. '.'■
An Exchange of Shots
_ V Cairo, June 19. —There was aD exchange
of shots to-day at Saukitn. The governor of
Dohgola -i asks reinforcements. He ' states
that he will not evacuate Dongola before the
feast of Ramadani. The report that Kassala
has fallen is doubted in military circles. . Col.
Wood has been instructed that Echelon with
the whole "Egyptian army will be between
Assouan and Wady Haifa by the end of the
present month. Several batalions of En
glish infantry will proceed to Assouan, where
an entrenched camp is being constructed.
