Chicago, Aug. 12. — The opening of the
markets this morning found speculators
more divided in opinion as to the course
prices would take than for some time past,
and for the first half hour of the session a
large business was transacted, with but little
change in prices. Foreign markets were
quoted dull aud easier. Reports from New
York showed continued dullness. Receipts
wen; fair, and the weather all that could be
desired. The leading articles were higher at
the middle of the seSsion, but at other times
in easier feeling prevailed. September
wheat opened nnd closed at 79c on the
regular board, and closed at 78,%' c on the
iftemoon board. September corn did the
same on the morning board at 49% c, and
lost J^c in the afternoon, while oats fell %c
and closed at 24% c. The provision market
was dull, except for short ribs, which closed
at $9.67}. for September, a gain over yester
day of 45c. September pork went up from
£".20 to $23, aud closed at $22. 50. September
lard closed at $7.45, a gain of 734 c.
Wheat opened about steady with an un
dcrlone of weakness. Some of the local
bulls were free buyers early and there were
also some outside orders, but there was an
evident disposition, notwithstanding this
fact and its cheapness, to jump ou it. The
most active bear was Bangs, who threw a
few lives out as feelers at a fraction below
tlie market, but there was a good-sized short
interest out, and all offerings were readily
taken. Hutchinson was among those who
were said to have sold heavily during the
early hours, but he is thought to have put it
out later. After the first hour the course of
the market was downward until about noon,
when the feeling became firmer and prices
showed a disposition to advance. The
cause of tin: strength at this hour was the
posting of the visible supply, which showed
an Increase of only 1,654,000 bushels instead
of between 2,000,000 nnd 3,000,000 as confi
dent y expected. Lester, Billy Murray and
others aie said to have covered In a big line
of shorts. September ranged at 78%@79%c
ami closed at 7S>£c.
Corn again followed closely the lead taken
by wheat. The opening was steady at yes
terday's Qgun & ami trading was fairly liberal
at Irregular figures. Receipts were the heavi
est of the year — 785 cars — while the visible
supply showed a decrease of 60,000 bushels
where an increase had been expected. This
ri rim il up the market for a time, but the
(fleet was lost before 1 o'clock, when the
feeling was easier and the figures the same
as at the opening. On the afteruooD board
a drop of ' 4 e was noted.
Oats ruled easy and rather heavy. The
biggest operator was Hutchinson, who put
out 300,000 bushels of year at 24((024, 1 -_c, and
offered a million or any part of it at 24% c.
The close was easy at a decline of %@}4c.
Dakota oats are growing in favor in this
market, and to-day Carr it Co. sold a car at
BOc, while our No. 9 white sold at 32>_'(S ) 33c.
In the provision market rather more
jtrength was developed and higher prices
were realized in nil the leading descriptions,
though extreme figures were not maintained
to the close. Offerings ou speculator's ac-
Counts were fair and the demand moder
ately active. The strength was chiefly due
to lighter receipts and higher prices in the
hog market, though the supposed corner in
ribs had something ti> do with the advance In
that article. Pork advanced sharply for
September, selling at $:2;i against $20 yester
day, bat fell i>tT 50c at the close. Year went
up 40c. Lard advanced 7%c and closed at
17.45 for September, and ribs had another
boom. The opening for September was at
N. :(£'•.,, and they advanced very steadily up
to 1 o'clock, when they closed very strong at
19.65. On the afternoon board they were
stronger and scored an advance of 2,!_'c.
Cudahy A: Stevens were heavy buyers again,
and it is whispered that Armour's hand Ls
feltiu the deal.
Trading was a little slow tn the cattle
market. The lack of activity did not result
from any lack of demand, however, as there
»as a full representation of the different
.•hisses of buyers and a pretty general dis
position to bay, but the too firm views of
holders operated as a check on active trad
ing. The light receipts seemed to warrant
holders in asking a further udvancc, and
they named prices s@lo@lsc above Mon
day's rates. Havers would uot respond, ami
consequently trade dragged along all the
forenoon. Bales do not indicate an v Import
ant change from Monday, though the average
of prices was a little .higher. Dressed beef
shippers were the largest buyers, they taking
I nam ber ol prime droves.. Butchers' stock
was iv scant] supply and sold as high as any
day recently, aud stockers were scarce and
very strong. The run of range cattle
amounted to about 100 cars. The market
da a tritle higher.
In the hog mark.'t trade opened early and
ictivcly. Puckers were bongry for hogß and
there was also a strong shipping demand.
The competition carried up prices a plump
liV, all grades sharing shoot equally iv the
idvanoe. Mnch of the morning trading was
ou speculative account, but packers, as
USUI, secured the bulk of the hogs. Packers
nere very liberal. They exacted scarcely
my shrink, while they bid big prices for lots
lv list hands and in the bauds of members

far as could be learned, rule 19 was not
violated by any one bound by its

Hii/wackee, Aug. 12. — Foreign advices
were unchanged this morning, but local
thunder storms in England and the floods in
Hungary imparted a steadier tone to the
markets on 'change, while continued liberal
receipts at winter wheat points prevented an
advance. The market opened at 79c for Sep

ranged within those extremes with a quiet
feeling. October wheat sold at 80@80%c.

New York, Aug. 12.— Stocks were marked
up at the opening. This brought out a sup
ply, and the market sagged. The announce
ment by the president "of the Wall street
bank that depositors would be paid in full
and without delay helped to restore confi
dence, and free purchasing by the Gould,
Osborue brokers soon put stocks on a firm
footing again. Telegraph was about the
strongest feature. It advanced early above
65 aud was held there. The Delaware &
Lackawanna manipulators bought stocks
again, and i it showed considerable strength.
There was a lack of activity throughout the
morning. What business there was cen
tered in about half a dozen stocks. Outside
orders were scarce, and there were
many in the exchauge who were simply look
ers on and not participants. Earnings for
the week of the Omaha show -an increase of
$3,000, while Northern Pacific gains, $23,000.
The Grangers will soon begin to feel the ef
fect of the new crops, and we may look for
a much more favorable showing from them
later on. Already cars which have been idle
for weeks are being distributed along their
lines for new business. The market was al
most lifeless during the closing hour. There
appeared no inclination to trade by either
side. At the finish there was no auimation.
Prices were barely steady, though nearly all
stocks showed an improvement for the day.
The bulls sustain the market without much
effort, but the trouble to-day seems to have
been in the scarcity of buyers. '
A. M. Day says: "The market was dull
and strong until the last half t hour when
prices ran off. We think the pools have
been buying some stock in order to keep the
tendency of prices upward, but transactions
have been too limited to make fluctuations
significant. The steadiness of the market
under the bank failure is accepted as strong
evidence of a much stronger tone.
It has been decided to wind up the Wall

Butler's Scheme Would Give the
Conutry a Democratic Presi
dent and Republican
[Special Telegram to the Globe. J
Washington, \ug. 2. — If it is Major Gen
eral Benjamin Franklin Butler's design as a
candidate to defeat an election through the
electoral college and throw the choice of a
president into the house of representatives,
he cannot defeat Cleveland, although he
could defeat Hendricks. The present con
gress will count the vote and will elect the
president if no candidate shall have
a majority of all the electors appointed.
Each state, uuder the constitution, would
have one vote to be cast as a majority of the
delegations should direct. The Democrats
have the majority in twenty-two states, as
follows: Alabama. Arkansas, California,
Connecticut, Deleware, Georgia, Indiana,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan,
Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New York,
North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Ten
nessee, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
These would vote for Cleveland. The Re
publican states, which would vote for Blame,
number fifteen, to wit: Colorado, Illinois,
lowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusets, Minne
sota, Nebraska, New Hampshcir,New Jersey,
Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rode Island, Vermont,
and Virginia. Florida being equally divided,
one Republican and one Democratic mem
ber, would uot have any voice in decision.
it would then devolve upon the senate to
elect a vice president from the two highest in
the list of those voted for by the electors for
that position. This would place Logan and
Hendricks before that body, and the Repub
licans being in the majority would elect Gen.
Lflgan. So that if Gen. Butler directs his
cauvass so as to throw the election into con
gress he will give the country a Democratic
prcsideut and Republican vice president.

Burial of Lieut, Lockwood— Letter of
Thanks From Sergt. Brainard.
fSpecial Telegram to the Globe. \
Washington, Aug. 12. — Gen. Hazen was
interviewed bp the Globe correspondent to
day in reference to the stories pf cannibalism
among the members of the Greely party. He
stated flatly at first that he knew absolutely
nothing about the reports. Finally he ad
mitted that he knew something, but what
that was he was not willing to divulge, on
the ground that the whole affair would be
made the subject of congressional investi
gation, and that it would be improper to
speak on the subject at this time. He was
asked to tell what he kuew of the death of
Henry, who, it is alleged, was murdered by
his companions, and he quickly replied with
some show of temper and considerable em
phasis: "Really, my dear sir, you must not
question me further. I cannot permit it,and
now, once for all, I tell you that I will not
answer that question."
The matter was brought to the attention
of Admiral Nichols, the acting secretary of
the navy, and he said to the Globe corres
pondent: "In my judgement it is ad d
lie. That is my opinion. Of course, I can
not tell what may have happened in New
York, but as far as the statement is concerned
that the story is borne out by papers
filed in this department it is an absolute and
unqualified falsehood. There is nothing here
to give the shadow of the color of truth to
such a report. We have no intimation of
such a thing, and I don't believe it for a
There was no means of ascertaining what
reports had been forwarded to Secretary
Chandler or delivered personally to him.
Commodore W r alker, chief of the bureau
of,uavigation, was of the opinion that the
story was of whole cloth. The dispatches of
Commander Schley that it was imperative to
place the bodies in metallic caskets he ex
plained as follows: "Commander Schley
was anxious to bring the bodies back in as
good a state of preservation
as possible. They were kept
in alcohol until they reached St. John. Such
a method of transportation was only proper
as long as necessary. In these tanks of al
cohol the bodies would be knocked about by
the motion of the vessels at
sea and would be damaged. Hence lt was
necessary to place them ln metalic
caskets at the earliest opportunity. Besides
that," he said, "bodies which were frozen
when found, would, you know, decompose
rapidly as soon as they reached a warmer cli
mate, and it was advisable to care for them
before decomposition should take place."

Washington, Aug. 12. — A horrible story
is published in the New York Times this
morning, that the survivors of the Greely
party, crazed by staryation, and cold,
FED ON TIIE DEAD BODIES
of their comrades, and that written docu
ments in possession of the navy department
substantiate it. The terrible narrative cre
ated a great sensation here, and the admiral,
acting - secretary of the navy, was shortly be
sieged by newspaper men anxious to ascer
tain something official concerning the publi
cation. The admiral said positively there
was nothingin the navy department confirm
ing this story and he doubted its truth. It
is possible, however, a report of this nature
may have gone direct to Secretary Chandler
in New Hampshire, as numerous documents
arc forwarded him without examination.
Some persons express the opinion quietly
that there is something in the story, and say
it is beginning to be known the Greely party
was not as harmonious as was generally
supposed, and that there is a story connected
with the expedition which it was intended to
conceal, but must now come out the same
way the story of the Jeannette's unfortunate
cruise came to the knowledge of the public.
The Times story was shown Gen. Hazen,
who at first was very non-commital, but
finally, with decided emphasis, he said:
"There are certain facts connected with the
matter lam not at liberty to mention. It is
very probable, though Ido not say so offi
cially, they will be made the subject of con
gressional investigation next winter. The
story contains some inaccuracies, notably
that in which reference is made to devouring
amputated limbs of those who suffered the
loss of legs aud arms In order to preserve
lives." Gen. Hazen was asked what truth
there was in the statement that young Henry
had been shot and his body eaten. "That is
a subject," he replied, "upon which I must
decline to be interviewed."
'"Is the report that Capt. Schley called you
and Secretary Chandler into the vessel's
cabin and informed you the survivors had
eaten their associates false?" was asked.
"That story is untrue."
"There is no truth then in the remainder of
the published stories that the bodies were
"I will not say they arc not true. I have
but casually glanced at the published stories,
other than at those portions which I deny."
'•Did you hear any rumors while at Ports
mouth that the dead men had been eaten?"
"There were rumors of that kind afloat. My
official position would not permit me to give
the facts in the case."
"There are facts then?"
"I can't answer that. I had a long inter
view with Lieut. Greeley, but the subject of
eating the bodies was not referred to. I can
imagine a case when cannibalism would be
justifiable, and it would be the case where
men are starving."
"Do you excuse cannibalism in the Greely
"Uuder circumstances it would be excusa
''Has Chandler received any report relating
to this subject?"
"Not that I know of. I have received
"Is the report that Private Henry was shot
and afterwards eaten, false?"
"There were rumors at Portmouth that he
bad been killed and the survivors had eaten
his body, but I decline to gjve any facta in
the case I may know."
"Will the shooting be the subject of inves
tigation by the war department:"'
"Not necessarily. Men are shot every
day in mutinies and co investigation made.
Under some circumstances it might be
"Will there be an investigation of the re
ported eating of the bodies!"
"An investigation conld not be made
either by the war or navy department. That
is a matter congress will have to look into.
Then all the facts will be presented and un
til then nothing will be given oat
Gen. Hazen says that Greeley's report on
the entire expedition will probably be for
warded to him within a month. While it
was generally conceded that there were no
records in Washington that would substan
tiate tbe story both the army and navy of
ficers among themselves did not view it as
an impossibility by any means.
Said a navy officer in tbe corridor of the
navy department, "while there's no reason I
know of for believing the story, the fact that
there are no records to substantiate it does
not disprove it at all. Look at it as true, is
there anything improbable about it? You
and I standing here with all the comforts
about us look upon such a matter with dread
and horror, but you must remember those
men were reduced to such a condition their
moral faculties were blunted. They should,
in fact, not be considered responsible
agents. Self preservation was their only
thought and they could not be expected to
moralize upon it."

Lo xdox, Aug. 12. — In tbe commons this
evening the appropriation bill passed the
third reading. Lord Churchill denounced
the enormous growth in the outlay of money,
and attacked tbe management of Hugh C.
Cbilders, counsellor of the exchequer. The
grants under the consolidated fund during
1884 were, he said, £5.000,000 over tbe oat
lay during tbe year tbe late government were
in office. The present session of parliament
had been scandalous and time bees wasted.
The government had Introduced bills with no
intention of passing them. Especially was
this true in the instance of the merchant
shipping bill, the introduction of which was
a low, miserable election device, emanating
from an ill-famed caucus. In regard to the
mission of Earl Northbrook to Egypt, he
pointed out that the government was
entrusting to two members of the financial
house of Baring Bros. & Co., Lord
Northbrook and Sir Evelyn Baring, the al
most unlimited control of England's politi
cal and financial interests in Egypt. The
goyernment might as well send two Roth
childs. The government's steps for the re
lief of Gen. Gordon, were insincere, and an
other transparent election device. He
warned the government that they were mis
taken if they expected to rivet the attention
of parliament at the autumn session on the
Childers replied to Churchill and said
Lord Randolph evidently thought he had in
herited Disrael's mantle. He advised him to
adopt just criticism and abandon violent
spittles and vulgar abuse. If the house sup
porta.the policy of economy the government
was only too willing to retrench. Earl North
brook had no conncection with the firm of
Baring Bros. The attacks upon him were
utterly unworthy of Lord Randolph, whose
attacks were so frivolous that the house
would pay no attention to them.
Brooklyn for Cleveland
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
New York, Aug. 12. — The controlling
element in Brooklyn Republican circles is
the Young Republican club. It contains all
the bone and sinew and fight that the Re
publicans there can muster. Just now it
has a tremendous fight of its own on hand.
The club i 3 evenly divided over supporting
Blame or Cleveland, and it was not until to
day that the Blame men would admit that
the contest which is to be settled in a short
time was in any danger of going
against them. To-day they have
opened their eyes to the fact
that the Cleveland element is
likely to predominate. If the club declares
for Cleveland, which now seems probable,
you can put Kings county down for 20,000
Democratic majority on election day. Brook
lyn contains more independent voters to the
square mile than any other part of the Union.
One. year it gave a thumping big majority
for Seth Low, Republican for mayor, because
it liked his style, and the next year it gave
Grover Cleveland a majority, not alone in
every ward but absolutely in every one of the
500 election districts. Folger did not carry
a single polling place. Brooklyn this year is
red hot again for Cleveland.

In the case of Frank S. Kelly, the variety
actor who died from a fall as supposed, the
doctors who made the post mortem examina
tion believe there was foul play. The exam
ination of Trixy Hamilton was had to-day

THE PROUD MAN.
A CHARACTER SKETCH!
What has a proud man to do with the clothing
business? Generally very little, as prond men,
as a rule, are too conceited to patronize a clothing
store, but pay exorbitant prices for "made-to
order goods," when if they were less blind to
their own interest they would do as the largest
portion of the best-dressed men in St. Paul are
doing, viz., patronize ••THE BOSTON."
Our "Red Figure Sale" is, as usual, a success,
onr many bargains attracting hosts of customers.
It looks now as though we should not have to
pack away a summer suit. This is just what we
want, and is the sole reason for our "Red Figure
Sale," to clear out our summer stock, if low
prices will do it.
