Chicago, July 1(>. — The grain market opened
Stronger to-day, but soon eased o:r with little
trading. There were do outside orders and the
local crowd were afraid to do much. Other de
pressing influences were receipts of 00,000 bush
els of neu wheat at St. Louis, thu failure of a
heavy dry goods house iv New York aud two sus
pensions in Ohio. These failures, following so
closely on the heels of She important bank fail
ure ul Indianapolis yesterday, cause distrust, aud
Tery few operators are willing to take the bull
cide under existing circumstances, and all mark
ets art' sadly in need of support in the shape of
good buyers. Lacking this, they are all sagging
from their own weight. They report raiu at
Kansas City to-day, also at many points in the
interior of Kansas, but iv Indiana and Illinois the
weather is reported brilliant. This wet weather
iv Kansas will delay the moyement of the new
crop several days.
Said a wheat trader to-day, referring to his
own pit: "Everything is as dead as a door nail,
but the man who sells takes his life in his own
"Hut you don't believe that anybody is ma
'.'No, but prices are too low to sell, and while
there may be no advance there might be. I don't
think there cau be decline."
"•Just a year ago to-day," said Mr. Arthur
Orr, "wheat was 20c per bushel higher than it is
this morning, arid corn almost exactly at the
figure it is selling at over in the pit there now,
yet the local crowd is 'bearishl in wheat and
'bullish' on corn."
"You are 'bullish' then!"
"No," was the reply.
"I was simply calling attention to an anoma
ous condition of affairs, i don't look for an ad
vah " for thirty days. Money, in my opinion, is
as light, in the country as it is at the money cen
ters. The farmers will be compelled to sell more
or less to meet, i heir debts nud to provide neces
sities. A little sold by each fanner will aggre
gate' a great deal of grain, enough to supply tlie
world with wheat. The prospects of an abun
dant crop are so good tbat I should scarcely ad
vise purchases just now. It is probable that af
ter the receipts nre in full tide the figures may
be a trifle lower, but on the other hand, this mar
ket anticipates so that prices may be to-day as
low as thoy will be when the grain is in full mo
tion. Purchasing is not all all hazardous, it is
possible thut it may bo a little early to buy, but
Wheat is very, very low."
Considerable interest was manifested in the
provision pit and a fair volume of business waa
transacted. The feeling was somewhat unset

New Yoiik, July 10. — The stock market to
day has been dull, but marked with some very
sharp changes owing to the reports of business
failures. The opening was strong for the gener
al list and prices later wore still better, with a
subsequent reaction. But there was little
business and the reports that went
the rounds of the street showed that there was
no confidence. The fact is that the actual fail
ures in business circles generally, so far as an
nounced, are regarded as indications of the
future, and more are expected to follow, and
trust companies aro asking 0 per cent, for time
money aud do not care to make call loans. There
have been reports of trouble with locol banks,
but thoy are unfounded thus far, especially as
concerns an up town savings bank. Present
prices are about the same as yesterday for the
Grangers and Gould stocks, except Missouri
Pacific, which is IH per cent, lower. Vander
bilt's Michigan Central closed last night at BI and
opened this morning with an offer at 59, and is
held at 03 with a peg, and substantially no trans

the assignment of Edmuud Yard & Co., of this
city, large dealers in white goods aim with lia
bilities of upward of 9500,000. This firm is an
old and supposedly wealthy one.
Boody, McClellen & Co. suy: "Stocks were
active and higher this morning. The favorites,
as on yesterday, were the Grangers, Central and
Hudson, Delaware & Lackawanna and Union Pa
cific. Western Uniou Telegraph acted better,
also advancing to 55>'8. The buying was
excellent in all the leading properties
and the feeling was quite buoyant.
The market held firm until the announcement of
the failure of a leading bouse in white goods
with liabilities of over $!>OO,OOO, when prices
yielded and there was some free selling of stocks'
the market becoming somewhat feverish. Ral
lies followed these depression^ though later
prices receded ou reports of more trouble, and
stocks continued heavy for the greater part of the
day. The manipulators iv the afternoon sold
considerable of it on the advance. A dividend
of 15>i wus declared, as was expected.
A mldsummor dullness characterized
the dealings during tbe afternoon and outside
orders appeared to be few and far between.
These occasional failures dampen the ardor of
many operators, though they receive an offset
in tho encouraging reports from the wheat and
corn growing sections throughout the west. The
declines have been sufficient to close many stocks
below tbe quotations at tbe finish last evening.
The market was decidedly tame at the last.
Chicago and Alton being the only exception."

"It would bo making a bold statement to say
that I do," replied Mr. Shively. "There havo,
however, stranger things than this happened.
Butler's candidacy would introduce an uncertain

him to carry Michigan aud lowa and perhaps
Massachusetts. This is giving him the lowest
possible estimate, and with these we might be
able to throw the election of a president into the
house of representatives."
"How could you do that?"
"If Blame received 196 electoral votes, Cleve
land 105 and Butler 10 that would do it. The
prospect of a very close race botween the Demo

possible that Blame and Cleveland may receive

It is said that Mahono had appointed a colored
politician of Virginia to the position of light
housekeeper on the James rivor. This individual
desired to employ a substitute and place him in
charge of his light house to onable him to get off
to attend a number of political meetings in Ma
hono's behalf. The commander declined to sanc

displeased Mahono, who, it is said, has diligently

Since congress adjourned, however, Chandler

from the city to-day had it issued. .
Evans was a brave and fearless man during the
war, and bears scars to-day made by men who
wore tho same uniform Mahone did. Besides,
Evans is said to be one of the most competent
officials in the naval service. It will be seen that
Mahone, an ex-confederate brigadier, is able to
have removed from positions worthy men who
served on the union side during the war with
distinction and credit. The removal was made
in tho face of earnest protests from a large num
ber of the most prominent business men of Bal

upon tho president and made a personal request
that he would not interfere in the case by revok

SftiNG Valley, July 15. — Yesterday after
noe.i it was rumored that Milo White was in the
city rngaged in packing a caucus for which no
profy r notice had been given through the col-
' the Vldette, nor in any other usual way
t h the voters of Spring Valley township.
"v'mi';: the purchased strikers, who
a:tT"..^> ■ ra.uieuio number thirty-eight, in
cluding Greenbackers, Democrats and Republi
cans, and all of whom reside in the city, were
seen filing into a public hall.
Wm. Loucks,'Esq., happened to be in the city
from hi* farm in the township : he had been
chairman of the townhship board for some years,
and be mistrusted that a political steal of the
"township was about to be made, and he with a
few other Republicans hunted up J. D. Farmer
to lead them into thu den.
There thoy found the postmaster (who had been
pledged to tbe support of Hon, Thos. H. Arm
strong) C. G. Edwards and their hirelings under
their limping guard, with their thin lips smliing
the smile of two yoars ago, In obedience to the
winks and blinks of their masters'.
Hon. i. D. Farmer then took the floor and in
sisted thst a caucus drummed together in such a
hasty and irregular way and under such influ
ence did not and could not represent the feelings
and wishes of the Republican voters of Spring
Valley township, and was a very unfair and a
very unjust way of claiming that the voters of
the whole township had employed them to uppear
at ihe county convention to do the business of

life long Republicans came forward aud support
ed the words and thoughts of the speaker.
Mr. Wm. Loucks then took the floor aud moved
that they adjourn their meeting until the next
evening, and that notice be sent out of the city
and over the township to tbe Republican voters
to come in and give their expression about who
should b« delegates to the county convention and
under what instructions they should go. The
motion was seconded promptly and as promptly
voted down by the hirelings, who claimed that it
was their caucus and that their bosses should be

as a candidate for congress by delegates made in
sucb a wayjrom all or any of the petty villas in
Fillmore county as well as from other counties in
the district, then may God have mercy upon the
slaves of farmers and the masses of the people
who are thus ruthlessly robbed of their
rights as freeman and as voters. When tbe
bosses of my party.be it a township party or a
county party, or the party of a congressional dis
trict, commit such damnable robberies of the
people within its own ranks, and become so cor
rupt and reckless about the rights of the people,
there is but one remedy left: to wit, march direct
ly across the line and vote for the Democratic
candidate, whoever he may be.
The house will have a Democratic majority
anyway and it will do the country no harm to
concide to it one more vote coming from the

Indianapolis Feelingl Better.
Indianapolis, July 16. — The financial situation
is much improved to-day. The runs on Retzln
gers and Fletcher and Churchman continued this
forenoon, but the number of people demanding
their money was smaller than yesterday, and the
runs entirely ceased by noon. It was feared the
country banks might become alarmed and draw
balances held by the banks in tbe city, bat all
fears from this source are allayed. Letters have
been received from the officers of the country
banks, leaving balances here, and expressing the
utmost confidence in the security of the city
banks, and stating that they will draw as lightly
as possible on their balances. While tbe feel
ing is stili very nervous, confidence is steadily
growing, and from the present outlook there i*
nothing to warrant apprehension of any further
trouble with the city banks.
The Bloody Pool Mystery Thickens.
A German woman living five miles down the
river roed in the town of West St. Paul, having
read the accounts in tbe paper relative to the
discovery of blood at St. Michael's church last
Sunday morning, told a respectable family yes
terday, to whom she weekly brings butter and
eggs, tbat about S o'clock that morning a man
about thirty yesrs of age came to her house ask
ing for water to wash the blood from his face aryi
hands, he being in his shirt sleeves, one of the
arms of which was torn off. She says one of his
eyes was gouged from its socket and thit
his pants were torn and
everything in the way of clothing noon him was
soaked with gore. He said he had been follow
ing the circus for several weeks, and that tbe
sight before he had been attacked by three
roughs outside the tent, and running away from
I them was overtaken, robbed of $65 in money,
and was thus badly beaten in trying to save it.
After having washed the blood off, using several
buckets of water thereat, he again took to the
highway and had not been seen by her »iuce.
Yesterday afternoon near the foot and under
the Prescott Bteps loading up tbo bluffs from
Dakota avenue, a portion of a shirt soaked with
blood and partially burned was found among the
weeds. It would seem, with so many clew?, that
the Sixth ward blood spot mystery ought to find
a solution soon.

AST. LOUIS CAPITALIST
Finds a Cattle Heaven in Southern
And Wonders Where Cars will Come from to
Haul Oar Wheat.
St. Louis, July 15. — The Globe-Democrat of
of this morning has the following glowing ac
count of the visit of some of the St. Loa is prom
iueut business men to the northwest:
A party of capitalists of this city, consisting of
N. G. Larimore, Leonard Matthews, W. H.
Thompson, H. L. Newman and a few others,
have returned from an extended tour through
Montana, Dakota and Minnesota. Mr. Matthews
was enthusiastic yesterday, both about the trip
and the country through which they passed.
A CATTLE PARADISE.
"If there ever was a cattlo heaven," he said
"it is Montana. We ran up to St. Paul aud
thence across the country to Miles City, where
we left the railroad and struck off toward the
south about 110 miles. Hero wo spent some
time, and from my examination of the country I
don't think it could be excelled for cattle raising.
The grass, which grows to a considerable height,
is so luxurious that the people say if you ride a
horse all day aud then place grain before him he
will turn from it to eat tho grass. Then if the
weather should be such as to Injure It, it only
does for about half its length. The lower por
tion remains fresh and green, and in the spring
begins to grow again.
After describing a "round up" tbe speaker
continued: "On one ranch this season they
branded 6,000 calves. As for loss, I only saw
six dead cattle ail the time I was there — that is,
six cattle that had died this season. To show
you how quickly a man can realize on his capi
tal it only costs $1 a year to support a cow. That
cow has a calf which is worth the minute it can
walk around $20 cash. That calf, ifit is a bull
will be worth in three years $35 or 40. If it is a
heifer, she will have two calves hersolf inside of
eighteen months. You see a calf is worth more
in that country than it is here because it in
creases so in value at such little cost.
Why, I was astonished to see car
loads of cattle from Indiana, Ohio and other
places In the east going west to be fattened.
One gentleman from Texas told me that he could
fatten a steer to above the average weight in
Texas, send it up to Montana and it would gain
200 pounds." •
"Is there much of au opening for a man with
a small capital*"
"The great difficulty is the scarcity of land.
There is very little land which is not already
taken, and in addition to this it is very diflicult
to obtain membership in one of the cattle asso
ciations. For this reason the newcomer has
rathor a hard time, for to be outside of the as so
ciation is to be shut off from allfthe benefits of
the "round up" and of protection from robbery
NORTHEAST DAKOTA AND MINNESOTA.
By the way, to show you how rapidly that
country is growing, a banker was telling me that
where eighteen months ago the range between
Devil's Lake and Larimore, fifty miles, did not
contain more than a few thousand dollars worth
of improvements, the township of Devil's Lake
is now assessed for $250,000 of improvements
alone. From Devil's Lake we took the St. Paul,
Minneapolis & Manitoba railroad south, passiug
through Minnesota, and there I saw what I had
never seen before — a real paradise for wheat.
I stood in one field and as far as the eye could
reach there was nothing but sky
and wheat. It was the grandest
sight of the kind I ever saw. Much of the
wheat was headed out, too, and all of it looking
splendidly. The soil along ba Dakota and
Minnesota is peculiar. It is a rich black loam,
with enough sand in it to keep It from clogging,
and It has this advantage : in winter it freezes
several feet deep, and it does not thaw out until
August. Meantime if they have a dry season, as
they bad last year and the year before, tho frost
beneath the surface, melting, sends up enough
moisture to prevent the jrrain from dying, and
they have a good crop anyway. They raise a
good many hogs up there too.
In fact, I saw one weighing
600 pounds. They feed them on chopped up
potatoes and barley and within certain limits can
raise them cheaper than we can here, They only
require to build houses of sod as a peotection in
winter. Their wheat straw they use as fuel In
running harvesting machines, but their oat straw
ie diffrent from ours and is, they claim, equal to
our finest hay. Altogether the country is a glo
rious one, and I think if the people of St. Louis
knew rao.e abont it there wtould be a rush in that
direction that would soon fill up ail the available
As far as the wheat crop Is concerned, I don't
sec how they are going to got cars enough np
there to bring all the wheat to market."
Speaking of the cattle convention, Mr. Mat
thews said it would be one of tho best things for
the cattle men and for St. Louis that could have
been devised, and from what he had heard he was
afraid St. Louis people did not appreciate its im
portance. The cattle men in the Northwest
were all very enthusiastic about it, and would all
he here if their money lasted.
The Cause of Butler's Silence.
Chicago, July 10. — Information has been re
ceived from close friends of Gen. Butler by B.
F. Shively, secretary of tho anti-monopolist com
mittee, dispelling the doubts regarding Butler's
candidacy for the presidency on an Independent
ticket, and stating definently and positively that
he will run. Shively, who is at the Brlggs house,
this city, expressed to-day, the most absolute
certainty that Butler will be a candidate with the
endorsement of the Greenbackers, anti-mono
polists and probably laboring man. Butler's re
fusal at present to make a public statement,
Shively says, Is prompted by a desire to first see
what will be done by the convention of labor
representatives to be held In Chicago, July 80.
