. CniCAGO, Aug. 27.— Things begin to look
more encouraging on 'change for a revival of ac
tivity, and with the advent of higher prices and a
stronger feeling the ranks of the bulls begin to
swell, and their voices are heard proclaiming the
advent of a great upturn. These are of that
;lass who are always easily swayed by local in
fluences and any marked change in values, how
°ver temporary. The more conservative, while
they are still on the bull Bide, are slow about
nuking and definite prophesies and the future
course of the market in the immediate future
and still slower about backing up their view
with active operations. .Markets opened
strong in sympathy with yesterday's late
feeling, and were fairly active early,
owing to Improved cables and light
receipts, these influences stimulating the shorts
to fairly active covering. Then came the report
of the New York statistician as to the visible
supply, his figures showing a decrease in the
supply of wheat of 000,000 bushels, or about half
a million more than was shown by "the Chicago
report. Late in the day there was a sharp ad
vance in eastern markets, which stimulated the
markets here, and the closing was strong and
excited. Wheat closed l ijc.i I '•;,<■ higher; corn
}*cffr?£c higher, and oats !4c higher. Provisions
ruled quiet and rather heavy, ribs being the only
article to .-how an advance and they went up
r, i,i ■./ !<)r. Lard and pork at the close were
unchanged from yesterday's last figures.
Wncat attracted the chief attention! Private
telegrams were received early in the day stating
thai the risible supply statement of the New
York etatisticun Bhowed a decrease In the visible
supply of wheat of 600,000 buHhels.thus conflrm>
in/ the statements of Secretary Stone and mak

ir wen not slow to avail themselves.
There »v? a general scramble among the short*
in povi r, and Durham and hisHsrowd, who bought
heavily yesterday, closed out a large lino of long
wheat at an advance. Milniinc, ltodman & Co.

[Special Telegram to the Globe]
Milwaukee, Aug. 27. — At the morning board
the wheat market opened strong and %c higher
under the influence of an active speculative de
mand for short interests, which was stimulated
by a reduction of 600,000 bushels iv* the visible
supply in the country since the last weekly state

was again week and 3s 0 pence per quarter lower
for all grain?, although Liverpool was steady,

New Tokk, Aug. 27. — The bears were out in
j full force this morning, and rattled prices down
iin a lively manner for a short time. The decline
brought in buyers fur the Grangers, and St. Puul
recovered from below 83 to above 84 in a few
moments. Jt was very evident before the noon
hour arrived that the cliques had made up their
minds to support the stocks, and the shorts had
to pay dearly for their amusement during the
: <nrly part of the day. The gains in St. Paul,
Northwestern and Union PaciCc wore about 3
points, a very respectable showing for a few
li«, ins' work. The Vanderbilts were not
much behind, both Central & Ilud-
Bon and Lake Shore vvero active

a well distributed business. Reactions, though
■light, occurred at the lust hour, but there was
at no time any particular pressure of stocks.
The volume of business; was lighter, which was
<iuite natural after the excitement earlier, Dela
ware A; Lackswanna redeemed itself to-day. The
break yesterday was evidently part of the pro
gramme to invite short selling of it. The move,
ment of grain along the line of the Northern
Pacific promises to tax that road to the utmost
in handling it. The common and preferred
stocks looked better to-day. At the last the

Reviewing the market, A. M. Day says; "The
market was sold down the first hour, but rallied
on the buying of the cliques and has since been

led the rise. We believe thut no large beur com

vidually have been large sellers. Woerishoffei
wus very bearish la Hew York Central, Lacku

cess upon what they believe to be the present
condition of allairs, viz: a too great and rapid
rise since July 1 ; an absence of good buying by
the public, which it was supposed the advance
and holding of prices would incite ; probabilities of
a much smaller export demand for cereals and
produce than wits anticipated; the unfavorable
relations between trunk competing lines east
and west; the falling on* In earnings and espec
ially the outlook for the Yamlerbilt roads, and
the fart that the bull cliques here had to hold on
and add to their purchases. The bull cliques.

and the prestige Of recent success. The market
is therefore likely to be a lively one for a while,

We advise the taking of small protlts. The short
interest has increased somewhat and loaning
rates arc a little stilTer.
The Tost Office Department Ring 1 .
Washington, Aug. 87. — Under the contract
for furnishing the post office envelopes recently
annulled by the muter general and the pre
vious contracts, the envelopes supplied were re
quired to be of certain exact dimensions. It
appears upon Investigation that the size required
were different from those kept in stock by the
envelope manufacturers generally. The effect
of the requirement was to prevent a great bulk
of manufacturers from bidding upon the pro
posals, as extensive and costly changes in their
machinery would be required for manufacturing
the sizes, which would not be warranted by the
profits from the contract for a single year. The
result at last of the letting was to limit the number
of bidders to sis firms to obviate this difficulty,
i lie proposals just issued for the supply of these
envelopes provides that the sizes may be slightly
larger than the dimensions given, but no smaller
thus allowing all manufacturers to compete for
the contract. The Critic says: "It is seriously
intimated that a collision existed In (he post
office department with the contractors, and that
the business of Postmaster General Gresbam is
to consult the president before taking the final
action in the premises, and it is not improbable
that the head of a prominent post office' official
will roll into the basket.

TUB EFFECT ON TRADE.
London, Aug. 27. The circles interested in
commercial relations with China are debating the

Tho third game of the St. Paul-Winona aeries
resulted in an easy victory for . the ' home team,
and right here it is proper to Btate that j the St.
Paul club has played three remarkable games in
as many days, having scored ; a total of fourteen
runs, while the visiting teams have failed to
reach the plate at all. The St. Paul battery yes
terday was Arundel and Dealey, and they played
together in perfect form, no passed balls being
recorded and but two safe hits. Brower and
Harter occupied the points for the visitors . The
former's pitching was erratic and easy to hit
when in reach of the bat. Dunn led with the
willow, making a total of four bases, Ilengle
coming next with three, Barnes and Dealey fol
fowing with two singles each, and everybody ex
cept Carroll and Aruudel getting at least one safe
drive. Dunn closed the career of fourteen men
at first base without an error and Hengle played
a faultless game, making a beautiful catch of
Connors' fly in the second inning. O'Brien's
stop of Umback's grounder in the seventh in
ning was greeted with merited applause. Wer
rick fumbled the first ball that came to his field,
but braced up immediately and played the rest of
the game in excellent form. The best play made
by the visitors was Rainey's fine catch of a line
fly. ■■".' McGunnigle and Umback covered their
bases well, but the rest of the team came in for a
share of the error column. Walsh and Patten
were the only members who hit safe, and they,
with Harter and Brower, who got a life on errors
in the first inning, were the only men left on
bases. Bradley, the Wiuona pitcher, umpired
the game in a listless manner, and the contest

gusted with him. The result in figures is con

The Dudes were too much for the Milwaukees
yesterday, defeating them by a score of 0 to 4,
and they played without a single fielding error.
Their batting,' however, was lighter than usual.
Walker and Kinzie occupied the points for the
home club, while the visitors' battery was Bald
win and Falch. Walker and Baldwin are evenly
matched in the box, as the full score will chow.
Both were wild yesterday, and each gave four
men their first l»ise on called balls. Kinzie's
catching was far superior to Fnlch's work behind
the bat. He had two passed balls and Falch had
tbrce. Where Kiuzie out-played Falch was in
throwing. Griffin, of the MiSwaukees, proved
I a trump. Twice he pasted the ball
over the right . field fence • for
a home run, and in one instance he brought in
another man. Casey's score was the best of the
day. In the field he captured his proverbial
three difficult dies, anil he distinguished himself
at the bat with a single and a two-base hit, and
Sot two of the six runs. Atidru* played a brill
iant game throughout and made a three-base
hit. His fine assists in the eight inning merited
the liberal applause accorded him. Reid, who
usually wield* tiie willow with disastrous results
to the opposing club, failed to get a hit, but he
played an admirable fielding game. The Milwau
kces were weak in the field, especially in the
first inning. In the course of the game they
were charged with seven fielding errors. Follow

How He Came to Settle In the Indian
Ft. Smith, Ark., Aug. 27.— An Associated
Press reporter to-day visited Capt. D_. X Payne
and his Oklahoma boomers, where they are held
prisoners at the camp of Lieut. Jackson and an
attachment of the Ninth cavalry, in the Cherokeo
nation, opposite Ft. Smith. Payne said: "I
first went to Oklahoma five years ago, when in
formed by able lawyers that these lands were
open to whites to settle, and made a colony. Since
then I have been removed seven or eight times
by the military. I spent last winter in Wash
ington City, and learned the Cherokee outlet
was open to settlement, and title was not in the
Cherokee, but in the United States.
I organized a colony of five hundred and
settled at Rock Falls, four miles south of Kun
newell, Kansas. Gen. Hatch, Aug. 6, ordered
us out. I told him, not being his soldiers, we
were willing to go into court to have the ques
tion settled, and asked him to lay the matter
before the secretary of war. He refused. Next
morning six companies of the Ninth cavalry ar
rived, accompanied by Indian Agent Tuft, a
clerk, a Cherokee Indian, and arrested J. B.
Cooper, editor of the Oklahoma Chief, in charge
of the colonists, and others. Most of the men
were absent at the time. The cattle men and
cowboys were against us and threatened to as
sassinate us. The cowboys tore down our flag
to use for a saddle blanket, but Capt. Monre re
covered it and a little girl came to us with the
flag. We wrapped it around her, and pistol in
hand were taken to Gen. Hatches camp, and
Rock Falls was burned. We were allowed to get
our clothing and furniture, but Mr. Cooper lost
some valuable papers and his clothing.
While at Gen.' Hatch's camp, I agreedto go to
Fort Smith, or any place designated for trial, if
released, and I offered to put np 850,000 security
for keeping my word ; but Gen. Hatch said his
orders were to take me to Fort Smith, and he in
tended doing so. Deputy Marshal Williams
served writs on us, and wanted to take us to
Wichita for trial. Lieut. Gardner, who was in
command, refused to turn us over or recognize
the civil authority. About sixty soldiers guarded
us as far as Cimarron river. The officers eeemed
to fear the cow boys would attempt to assassi
nate us. Half of the soldiers returned, and the
rest are with us. We want to get our matter be
fore the courts of the country for we believe we
have a right to locate homesteads on these lands,
and intend to keep on trying until the matter is
And Says Grover Cleveland Must Not
Withdraw from the Ticket.
Dcbuque, Ind., Aug. — The Herald will
publish to-morrow the following letter from
Gov. Hendricks, received by a citizen of this city,
in answer to an inquiry concerning : the rumors
affecting a change in the national Democratic
ticket, consequent upon the reports published
against Gov. Cleveland : -•.•.-
Indianapolis, Aus:. 21, 1884. — I have your let
ter of the 14th inst. I cannot consider with fa
vor your suggestions of a change in the national
ticket. The action of the ; convention cannot
now be reconsidered and must stand, and I think
it right to stand. I do not agree with you in
respect to the probable result. I think the prob
abilities are favorable to the success of our
ticket. The Cleveland scandal will not , have
weight with the people, and ought not to have
weight; it is unworthy the national contest.
Three times Gov. Cleveland has stood the test of
a popular canvas— once for the office of mayor of
his own — and each time he received the en
dorsement of his neighbors by a vote largely
above bis party strength. ; Whatever there may
have been of the scandal existing before that, it
is not just either to him or the people now to re

judged by his public record; by his capability
and fitness for the discharge of responsible and
important public duties, and not by an old and

Withdrawing in Favor of St. John
Washington, Aug. 27.— Edwin D. Bailey, sec
retary of the national committee of the American
party, says to-night, that Senator A. C. .Pomeroy,
nominated for president, will withdraw in favor
of St. John. When the convention of the party
was in session St. John's name was prominently
mentioned by the leaders in connection with the
presidency. It was thought, however, his nomi
nation, at that time, would prevent his securing
the nomination of the Prohibition party at Pitts
burg, and without that nomination the American
party did not desire bis name i as the head, of
their ticket. A resolution was passed by the
convention of the American party giving the na
tional committee authority to supply any vacancy
which might occur. Next to St. John ex-Senator
Pomeroy was said to be the choice of the conven
tion. A conference was held with the
latter, and at his ; own suggestion,
Baily says it was agreed he should be nominated,
with the understanding that if St. John should be
nominated at Pittebnrg he would withdraw in his
favor. Pomeroy was present at the Prohibition
convention, and to a number of prominent per
sons after the nomination of St. John, he signi
fied his intention of withdrawing in pursuance
to the agreement at Chicago. The national con
vention of the American party will meet either at
Chicago or in this city, early in September, when
their presidential candidate will recommend that
the vote of the party be given to St. John. Mr.
Baily says there is no doubt but that the action
of Pomeroy will be acquiesced in. The with
drawal in favor of St. John, it is estimated, will
give him 40,000 votes.
