Chicago, Aulj. 21. — The tone and tendency of
the market is undeniably bearish,' and this is
shown not only in the continued depression in
prices, but in the talk that pervades commercial
circles, which is perhaps even a better index, for
operators will talk higher prices when they have
not enough faith in them to buy. As it now
stands, even the most stalwart bulLs aro weaken
ing, and hesitate about reiterating their oft ex
pressed opinions about the bottom having been
reached. They have clung to their commercial
creed of higher prices until all the life has been
hammered out of them by tho perverse course
of the market, and now they can only say,,
"prices are terribly low." This is indeed true;
so true that even the most pronounced. bears are
very cautious about selling short, and between
these two negative influence* the market situa
tion culminated to-day in almost complete stag
In a general way the markets on "change were
easier, and nearly everything suffered a decline,
the easier feeling being attributed chiefly to the
disinclination to operate. The cables reported
the English market* depressed, with no inquiry,
Ljt the French markets are reported steadier.
The New York market was weak all day, and the
same may be said of the winter wheat market.
The most popular topic of conversation about
the alleys is the crop prospects. According to
the latest reports they continue very good, prom
ising do opportunity for any important ball
movement for months to come. Shipments have
fallen off very materially under influences of dry
weather in Europe, which fits the domestic pro
duct for milling purposes earlier than usual.

sales, and closed at 78Jic a loss of He, Cora
for September closed at 53c, a loss of lc, and
oats closed at 35^c. a loss of He.
Provisions were only moderately traded in,
and ruled generally easier. Lard closed at $7.55
for September, T',4c below yesterday, and ribs
at $10.55, or 5c lower.
A very quiet feeling pervaded tbo wheat mar
ket, with no outride orders and local trading be
ing restricted to a few scalping deals. The
early morning showed the most strength, and
prices did get up at one time to about yester
day's elope, hut it was only a temporary
spurt and soon nettled back and closed easy at
Ty 4 c for September, and Bi)c for October, a de
cline of \c. English . buyers "' say"
they expect- to bay wheat this sea
son for less money than ha» been done
in a hundred years. Said a prominent broker
to-day': '•! bavo been waiting along in the hope
that something might turn up to change tbe out
look, so that 1 could advise my friends to take
hold of the long aide, but 1 really cannot see any
thing at present to prevent the market from

cessation of the receipt! will help the market;

New Yobk, Aug. 21. — The market opened
this morning with rather free selling of stocks
and a lower range of prices. The manipulators
of Northern Pacific soon came to the rescue and
marked that property up. This helped the bal
ance. There appeared to be a scarcity of out
side orders, however, and the activity witnessed
yesterday was wanting, With the exception of
Union Pacific the remainder of the list seemed
inclined to drag. During the morning hours San
Francipco preferred scored another advance,
Belling at 45c.
; Stocks picked up a little during the closing i
hour, St. Paul and Union Pacific rather leading.
Pnllman sold at 1.15, and its friends talk 1.20 for
it and an extra cash dividend during the. fall.
The tone continued strong up to the finish, and
toward the last there was some good buying and
more activity. The reports from the west of
beneficial rains throughout the corn belt, pro
duced a better feeling in Wall street and helped
the course of th« market during the latter part
of the session. The closing was quite firm for
all leading stocks. It is the policy of the cliques
to permit no session's decline by large sales.
Later in the season, when increased earnings ut
tract outsiders, they may be willing to part with
a portion of their holdings.
A. M.Darsays: "The market was -well
sold during the first hoar. Leading commission
houses advised realizing sales, and some of I the
large clique houses sold freely. After the soc
ond hour support was furnished, and the active
list advanced. The upward movement was ir
regular, and most marked in Union Pacific until
the last half hour when the list went up. In the
firi-t half hour there was some selling or reported
tumble to the First National bank of Albion; >*.
T., capital, $100,000; surplus 820,000. We
think the real object of the cliques to-day has
been soil stock, but the market continues,
however, in easy control of the bulls. i-V *'
S. V. White sold calls on Union Pacific at 55
good this week for 02.50 per 100 shares. Humor
has It that Smith covered his
Union Pacific yaaterday. The loan room shows
a diminished short Interest. John King will this
afternoon be elected assistant president of the
Erie, and will so .continue till next November, or
the retirement of Mr. Jewett prior to that time.
Mr. Gould is believed to have bean a hevvy seller
yesterday, but this he denies. There were heavy
sales of Tfew York Central this forenoon. Brok
ers are watching weathwr reports more carefully,
and the ' feeling now is that tha market has
reached a point where It is specially susceptible
to crop news. It is said that 45,000 shares of
Erie bought by th* Wormsers some time since
around 13 were for Vanderbilt."
Vanderbilt on the Erie.
Chicago, Aug. 31. — The reported remark at
tributed to Mr. Vanderbilt, in an inter
view in the New York Tribune, that the Erie
railway is from time to time cutting rates, and
that the New York Central wink at the regular
irregularities, if they are not carried on too
openly, has awakaned same interest here in New
York clrclus. A reporter sought oat an Erie
official and asked him if that road was violating
the pooling arrangement as claimed. He said it
was not, and that the Erie did not propose to
violate any agreement. The remark of Vander
bilt has a curious look, in view of the fact that
tho names of the Vanderbilt lines are used on
circular* of steamship agents, who are offering
heavy emmisbiocs on east bound railway tickets
from Chicago. The commission amounts to $5
a ticket. These circulars have been distributed
throughout the west.
Cat Rates.
CnicAOO, Aug. 21. Railway men here express
no hope that the war on passenger rates by the
trunk lines between Chicago and New York can
be long averted unless the pool is re-organized.
It i* rumored Vice Commissioner Pearscn is
coming west with that view, but it could be
traced to no definite source. Each line in the
pool licenses th» other* of paying commissions
through the steamship lines. Representatives
here of the Vanderbilt lines assert they main
tained rate* until forced by a falling off in their
passenger business, to grant the same eonces-
Finns d.« were being made by other lines. The
belief is generally expressed that the rates will
go very low.

St. Paul Lays Another Game at the
Feet of Milwaukee in a Thir
teen-Inning 1 Contest.
"Winona Falls to Turn Up in Minneapolis,
or Give Any Reason for Failing.
St. Paul vs. Milwaukee. -
The St. Paul and Milwaukee teams opened
the West Seventh, street park again yesterday, in
the presence of - 1,200 spectators ': in a thirteen
inning contest, the longest game ; played in St.
Paul this season. However, neither of the clubs
is in any way to blame for the great length of
the game. . To Mr. J. Crooks, the gentleman
who stood up in the vicinity of the catcher j and :
made alleged decisions according to the playing
rules and the dictates of bis conscience, -is due
the extraordinary number of innings the game
covered. ' Mr. Crooks had honorable intentions,
no doubt, but to speak very plain English, he
cant see well enough' to umpire. , Scarcely, an
inning passed in which he did not make ludi
crous and aggravating mistakes, but in all these
we discovered no deliberate purpose to favor
either team. ! It was simply • a " case of
near Vsightednegs, and the audience
in suggesting to him that he buy
a pair of [ glasses offered him in pity a gentle
hint a? to what he really needed. Except for one
error of judgment, through which the Milwankee
team scored two runs, and thereby virtually won
the game, the blunders of the umpire counted
about as heavily against one club as the other.
The decision above referred to was so radical a
mistake, however, that it merits more than a
passing notice. In the fourth inning Sexton took
first on tails and was thrown out from pitcher to
second. Hogan pounded the ball to earth in
front of the plate and stole second. Griffin made
a base hit, sending Hogan to third. Behsl struck
out, and Dsaley tried to cut off Griffin at second,
Hogan making a dart for home. Hengle sent the
ball back to Dealey, who was three feet off tha
plate on a line between third and home and
touched the runner as he came in, and yet the
umpire gave him the run.' This decision virtu
ally gave Griffin his ran also, as . Hogan would
have been the third man out. But for this un
fortunate circumstance the St. Paul team would
have taken the "only Cughman" into camp with
ease. ' ;•.-.•
The game opened with St. Paul at bat and Car
roll swung the willow. Cusbman fired seven bad
tails over the plate and Carroll . took his base,
taking second on Hengle'B grounder to first and
going home on Cushman's bad throw to second.
Barnes was retired on a fly to right and O'Brien
from second to first. In the first three innings
Milwaukee failed to reach first. In the second
and third innings CuEhman struck out six St.
Paul men in a row. In the fourth inning Mil
waukee scored two runs as detailed above, on a
bad decision of the umpire. Dealey's long hit
for two bases to left field was the only . incident
of St. Paul's fifth inning. Milwaukee 'scored
twice. . Baldwin bit one to Arundei too fast I to
hold and Porter put him forward a base on a
good - drive to left field. Cushmau hit the ball
.to right field, but Carroll got it to first in time to
cut him off, the runners each taking
a base. iiroughton struck out and Sexton
hit an easy grounder to Hengle, which
he failed to stop, Baldwin scoring and Porter
following him in on a passed ball. Hogan struck
out. Neither side scored in the sixth and
seventh innings. St. Paul secured the advan
tage in the eighth by making four runs. Arundel
went out from second to first. Tilley. made a
hit to left field, went to second on a passed ball
and home on a fumble of Werrick's drive to
short. Carroll hit to right and both he and
Wcrrick scored on Porters overthrow to third.
Hengle hit to short, who overthrew to first, and
the former mada the tour of the bases be
fore the ball could be returned. Barnes etruc k
out, O'Brien made a hit to center field and Dunn
struck out. For Milwaukee Hogau . reached
second. In the ninth inning matters ; were de
cidedly lively. For St. . Paul Dealey
called first on short's error and
stole second. Arundei struck out.
Porter muffed Tllley's ny,Dealey going to th.rd
and Tilley to second. Werrick gave the catcher
a foul fly and Carroll went oat from second to
first. Moynahan was retired on a fly to right
field, and Baldwin took first on bad bulls. Por
ter then went out ou a hot Ay to second, and the
crowd stood up and yelled, as everybody ex
pected the fun would shortly be over Cushman
was next At bat. Dealey, however, made a bad
move by trying to cut off Baldwin at second.
The throw proved a bad one and the latter scored
the tying run. Cushman then struck out as
everybody expected. The tenth, eleventh and
twelfth inning* proved blanks for both, as did
also the thirteenth for St. Paul. In tbe last half
of the $ inning Iloxan made a base hit to right
field, stolu second and third and reached the
plate on a passed ball. Following is the score :

The Bximors Coming: From China Regarding
War Make the Legation at Wash
ington Nervous.
[Special Telegram to tho Globe. 1
Washington, D. C, Ang. 21. — The death of
Sixth Auditor El* will doubtless, under the civil
service rules, promote Judge Crowell, of Minne
sota, the present deputy auditor. No official
stands higher in public estimation than Judge
Crowell and it is presumed the Minnosota dele
gation will take prompt action in his behalf.
The members of the Chinese legation here are
watching the developements in regard to the
troubles between their country and Franco with
a good deal of interest. They do not credit the
reports that the war is over, on that France has
in a single week or month conquered the Chinese
nation. Their army and navy they say is some
thing more in importance than this *oa!d indi
cate. They have great confidence in the lighting
power of their amy. Their new steel
gunboats are, they say, very formidable. The
arm}" has, since the .Monosha conquest, been di
vided into two sections, the green flags and the
bannennen. The latter are the more formida
ble, the green flaga being a sort of militia sys
tem. Of the bannennen there are about 125,000
who are stationed near the capital of the nation.
These, they gay, are ouly a small section of the
fighting Ftrength of the army. The great mass
of troops come from the interior of lue country.
Mongolia, they say, is able to furnish a quarter
of a million of warriors. Then there are of the
green flags 600,000, and a considerable number
scattered about at the various forts and military
stations throughout the country, bringing the
available force up to about a million. This is
only the force immediately available. What the
empire, with its 450,000,01)0 people, could raise
jon demand is pretty hard to say. In addition to
I all these facts, they lay great stress on the fact
i that an adoption of European methods in the
army has made it very formidable.
Since "Chinese" Gordon set the
Chinese army in order and put
a quick stop to the Taping rebellion they
have realized the importance of European
methods and put them into active practice. The
result is that, beside having a Jarge number of
forts along the coast bristling with Krupp gnns,
they have a good navy aud between 100,000 and
200,000 men drilled and equipped in thorough
European style and able to do first-class fighting
at a minute's notice. Modern arms of all sorts,
both large and small have been imported from
abroad aud manufactories established in their

Prominent Democrats c Well Pleased
With the Brief but Compre
hensive Epistle of Gov. •
[Special Telegram to the Globe. |
New York, Auk. 21.' — Gov. Cleveland's letter
is the talk of the politicians. The Republicans
ridicule it unmercifully, calling it stupid, full of
platitudes, meaningless or saying nothing, un
grammatical and evasive on the topics that are
most btfo'c the country. The Democrats, on
the contrary, say that it is plain and straight
forward, just what they want and can be under
stood by all who read. At the national head
quarters the Democrats ; professed to be very
much pleased. This is what some of them said:
Said Chairman Sarnuut: ' "I lam well pleased
with it. It hits the nail squarely on the head.
It could not be Improved. It will create a deep
impression throughout the Union."
Edmund Wilson, National committeeman from
Michigan: "An excellent letter, I have always
believed in a single presidential term."
A. B. Gordon, of Boston, corresponding secre
tary of thw Independent Republican committee of
Massachusetts: - "It is the very thing — the
mark square in ths center. Could not be im
proved upon."
Ex-Senator B. F. Jones, of Louisiana: "The
Governor's letter suits me first rate on account of
its sincerity, it* brevity, and iU explicitness, on
the only point upon which it could supplement
the platform to good advantage, in view of the
; issue attempted to be raised since the convention
— mean the labor. question— in . which Cleve
land's declaration should, and lam sure will, '
satisfy the honest labor vote of the country/
Col. Smalley, of the national committee : "The
governor has only given further proof ,of his
broad statesmanship, his honesty .and integrity
of purpose. It is a good letter, and even bis op
nonents cannot say otherwise without stultifying
themselves." . i;-::;:
Hon. Miles Ross, national committeeman: "I
am more than pleased with the letter. Its brev
ity is commendable, but it is as full of meat as
an egg. Butler's and Blame's. letters pale in
comparison with it. It will do great good through
out the country." ■ v ";.Y;
'. Ex-Attorney General White, of West Virginia:
I think it terse and sure to move the popular
. Gov. Walker, of Connecticut: "Gov. Cleve
land's letter la admirable for its comprehensive
beauty. It surely meets every issue of the
canvass. It recognizes in a manly way the rights
and dignity of American citizens, i whether rich
or poor, capitalist or laborer, and it promises
what the people seem determined to haye — an
honest and economical administration of oar na- 1
tion"* aUairs."
Leon Abbott, Governor of New Jersey : "The
letter of acceptance of Gov. Cleveland is the
clear utterance of a representative Democrat,
pledged to honest . government and administra
tive reform." .
Gov. Cleveland, remains in the heart of the
, Adirondack wilderness. He wrote the letter '
; there, and it was not revised by any one, nor re
| ferred to any one . > He sent it out of the wood* to
I Col. Lamont, his private secretary, in Albany,
with instructions to make it public at once. La

The French Minister to China Lowers His
Flag und- Retires.
Pißis, Aug. 21. — The following is the official
resume of the Franco-Chinese situation: Not
withstanding the successive respites granted
China by France, aud the moderation of the
French officials having the negotiation in charge,
China has refused all satisfaction for the Lang
son treachery, and recalled its
plenopotentiaries to Shanghai. France
was therefore compelled to present China with a
lastsnmtnons. The French Minister to China
has been instructed to acquaint Tsung Ti Hamen
of the vote of parliament, and also with the
fact that the indemnity has been definitely fixed
at 80,000,000 francs, payable in ten years. Un
less these demands should be complied with
within forty -eight hours Admiral Courbet would
take the necessary steps forthwith to secure the
reparation due France. The term of gTace ex

The Chinese minister bade Ferry farewell and
! received his passport.
London, Aug. 21. — A Pekin dispatch of this

Flight of the President Attributed to
Outside Affairs.
Albion, K. V., Aug. 21. — Warner, president
of the First National bank, left town Aug. 12 t
stating he was going to St. Catherines.Ont., and
1 from there would proceed to New York. He
; being the only percon in possession of the com
i bination to the lock in tbe inner vault the exact
j condition of the affairs of the bank is not known,
j bnt no alarm is felt in regard to the ability of the
bank in paying depositors. The door to the inner
vault will be drilled to-moriow. The bank ex
aminer here in July reported the bank all right
iv accounts and other matters. Warner was ex
ecutor of the estate of Roswell Barrows, amount
j ing to several million dollars. Mr-
Burrows died in 1879, and the executors have
never filed an inventory or made any statement
in regard to the affairs of the estate up to the
present time. W. K. Calkins, of Rochester, and
I late of Boston, was some time ago employed by
j W. R. Burrows, one of the heirs, as confidential
business agent, and filed a petition in the surro
gate's office of Orleans county for an action to
compel Warner to file an Inventory of the estate.
An order issued for that purpose, making the
necessary filing on or before August 18th* but
Warner not filing tbe inventory, the surrogate
issued an order revoking the letters testamen
tary issued to him. An investigation shows War
ner has disposed of his property here as follows :
Keal estate to W. A. Parmely for $2,500, by
deed dated July 24; his residence to Alex. Lyt
lar for $5 and a certain indebtedness: two deeds
dated August 5, to George A. Newell for $1,450;
a mortgage on the skating rink and btables to
secure a note of $5,000 to 11. H. Warner, of
Rochester. Mr. Warner is secretary of the In
ternational Brtdge company, which owns the
suspension bridge acrostt the Niagara river.
A man, who gives his name as Jno. Bray, is

Opening of the Season of 1884-5.
The season of 1884 and '85 was most auspic
iously opened at the Grand last night by M. B.
Curtis, the comedian, in "-pot Cash, or Sam'l of
Posen on the road." Before the time for the
curtain to rue bad arrived. Manager Conklin was
obliged to announce "standing room only," and
over a hundred were turned* away, and hundreds
of tickets for to-night were purchased. \ The
readers of the Globs have already been treated
to graphic and reliable descriptions of \ the play
by the amusement editor at the home office. Al
though new.and the members of the company are
still somewhat ; unacquainted with ' the minutia
of their respective roles, "Spot ; Cash"
was smoothly presented and gave unconditional
satisfaction to the immense audience composed,
as it was, of our leading citizens. To say that
the hearty applause elicited, not only by Mr.
Curtis, but by Miss De M> r, was merited is pay
in:: them a compliment. The play is still slightly
rough and in some minor points unsuited to the
stag*. To remedy this Mr. Ed. Marble, of New
York, the author, has been sent, for and:. will
watch its production for a time and make a few
changes, especially in the fourth act. Same bill

Chicago, Aug. — To-day's developments af
forded no ground for hope that . a lively, passen
ger war between Chicago and New York can •be
averted. , All roads, as far as can be : learned, are
paying heavy commissions through the medium
of agents of steamship lines, and there is 'every
reason to believe ' that the commissions will ]be |
gradually increased until rates will be reduced to
a merely, nominal figure. .; The only way to avoid
utter demoralization will be to at once call a |
meeting and reorganize the pool. . It . was ; ru- |
mored yesterday that Vice Chairman Parson had !
signified his intention to do it, - but the report
could not be substantiated. ' The Vanderbilt peo
ple asserted that they ; had : been ' compelled ' to
take the step they did because a . majority of

agreement. They had - stood still ..until their
