it will be remembered was found in his bed

ber of severe scalp wound, evidently inflicted
by a coupling pin. As no noise was heard,
and as it would have been nearly impossi
ble for parties to have assaulted him without
attracting attention, there being also an en
tire absence of any cause for such an assault
the theory is generally entertained that he
inflicted the wounds himself while in a de
lcriuin resulting from heavy drinking. In
quiries have never developed aiiy informa
tion from Bloomer, and the affair may con
tinue to remain a mystery.

The German Citizens Galled by the Re
straints of a Jiigiitrd Administration,
Jtesolve to jlalir a Fight.
By some unaccountable accident, the
Globe's account of the meeting of the Ger
mans on Tuesday night, miscarried, and is
consequently reproduced.
The meeting was held in Turner hall, and
was largely attended, fourteen societies being
represented by delegations. A committee on
resolutions being appointed, reported the
following:, which was unanimously adopted:
Wkbbsab, The present course of a major
ity of the city council has resulted in evil 6
affecting not only the saloon keepers, but
also Interfering with the constitutional rights
and personal liberty of each citizen; there
fore be it
Jicsjlvcd, That we protest against the un
just action of the city government which has
deprived by means of ordinances many citi
zens of the right to carry on their busiucss,
and which also affects individual citizens and
societies in the enjoyment of their privileges.
We protest against the appropriation of
money out of the city treasury for the pur
pose of paying spies who o:ily can corrupt
the morals and never accomplish the execu
tion of the ordinances.
■Bwofarf,, That we call od every German-
American citizen to join the organization of
a central society to defend their personal
rights, to work together in the coming elec
tion, and in the next municipal election for
such candidates only as openly and manfully
shall declare themselves In favor of personal
liberty and promise to defend it, no matter
to which party they belong;
ReaofaeA, That the committee as now ap
pointed be continued in the various societies,
and that subcommittees bo appointed in each
ward and precinct, knowing as we do that
the success of the liberal movement can be
gained only at the polls: that every attempt
to gain it by force would be unworthy of
good citizens.
Rmkxd, That a masa meeting of German
Amejiean citizens of Minneapolis be held,
and these resolutions be submitted for ratifi
Rmatved, That we invite all liberal minded
American citizens of other nationalities to
participate in this movement.
The Pillsbury policy in discriminating in
favor of the rich was commented upon and
condemned in terms most emphatic. Du
ring fair week liquor was sold openly and
llagrautly on the fair grounds, by a party
with absolute impunity, while just outside
of the fence, a poor man was not allowed to
sell a few glasses of beer on the quiet. Both
were outside of the patrol districts. The
only difference was the poor man
interfered with the whisky monopoly
conceived by a hypocritical mayor
who has declared in a bornbastical message
that the laws and ordinances must be en
forced and any ollicer who failed to inforee
them should be dismissed. The officers
promptly reported the sale of liquor on the
grounds but the mayor had apparently put
up the job, and must consequently protect
those to whom he had given the rights.
It was decided to bold a mass meeting of
Germans in Turner ball on Tuesday even
ing, when a set of resolutions shall be en
dorsed and then laid before the city council.
The question of the narrow policy of the
present mayor In singling out the saloon
business for prosecution and persecution
was discussed at length. Attention was
called to the fact that houses of ill fame sell
liquor at all hours and on all days, when
the committee meeting adjourned.
The Lant 11'eclc Has Jit-en Vert/ Thill, and
the Out Put Ha* Jlren Very Light.
The North- Western Miller, In its weekly
review prepared for its issue of Sept. 12, will
In consequence of the majority of the
mills being shut down last week, the flonr
production tell oil to about one-tnird of what
it averaged duricg the summer, and was the
lightest since Minneapolis became anything
of a milling center. There were only two
mills, the Pillsbury A and Phoenix, located
on the east side of the river, that got in a full
week's work. Tne Anchor was started up
with steam power on Thursday, and made
good headway the remaining three days. The
total output of the week was 32,575 barrels,
averaging 5,429 barrels" daily, against
104,700 barrels the preceding week.
While the production will be
much larger the current week, it will not
reach very high figures. The work on the
West Side canal was not finished until Tues
day noon, keeping nineteen of the mills
idle until that time, and the week's work will
be shortened that much. At the same time
seven other mills, with a combined capacity
of over 6,000 barrels daily, will not be ready
to start before Thursday or Friday, and per
haps not before Monday. Next week all the
mills will be in first class condition for
work, and from that on operations promise
to be heavy.
The stoppage of the mills caused an accu
mulation of flour orders, but prices show no
sign of advancing, and the close was weak.
The export inquiry is light, with offers
lower, and the general market heavy, with
only moderate demand. Choice, dry new
wheat is being mixed with the old, and
works well, as a rule. Quotations at the
mills for car or round lots are as follows:
Patents, $5.20@5.40; straights, 54.70Ca5.1;i;
first bakers', $4.25@4.50; second bakers',
$3.C0@4.00; best low grades, $2@2.20, in

Tired of Life.
Yesterday a painter named B. Jessen,
boarding at the house of Mrs. H. Lane, 419
Sixth aveuue south, did not get up as usual,
but remained in bed all day. Nothing was
thought of the occurrence until 7 o'clock in
the evening, when an acquaintance named
Ford called and said Jessen had threatened
to take poison the day before. A ladder was
procured and the room entered, when the
man was found in unconscious condition
nnder the influence of morphine. A physi
cian was summoned and administered an
antidote. The amount of the drug taken
was not sufficient to produce death, and at
11 o'clock the would-be suicide was resting
easy. Jessen is a painter, about thirty-five
years old, and has been employed lately at
the real estate office of S. C. Gale & Co., but
! during the last week has been out of work.
| Despondency was the cause, and Jessen ex
presses regret that he failed in his attempt.

[Special Telegram to the Globe. 1
Chicago, Sept. 10.— The markets devol
oped considerable activity to-day in tho way
1 of speculative trading and the course of wheat
was somewhat of a surprise even to the bulls
on the mornlug]ses*iou and to the bears in the
afternoon. In the morning prices went up
j£e in spite of liberal receipts and cables
which reported foreign markets "very heavy,
slow, dull and neglected.," In the after
noon with no further reason than still worse
cables there was a drop of lc from the clos
ing figures at 1 o'clock and the market was
abandoned to the trade of scalpers. Corn
continuas week and feverish with quite a
sharp decline while provisions were active
and ranged generally higher with tho excep
tion of pork, which was, however, merely
nominal. Closing quotations of October
options wore as follows: Wheat 76Xc a
drop off of 2^c, from last sales yesterday ;
corn 53c, a decline of %c;
oats 25^c, unchanged; pork $15.50,
a decline of 50c; lard $7.27>£, and . ad
vance of 17^c and ribs, $9.65, an advance
of sc.
Wheat ruled weak early, opening }£@X C
below last sales yesterday, and selling off for
the first hour or so J-£c. The increased ship
ments to the wheat districts indicated a freer
movement of the crop to market at an early
day. Special crop reports from India justi
fied the expectations of even bigger crops
than early estimates, and foreign markets
were flat. But it soon became apparent that
the market was largely oversold, and the ap
pearance of a few heavy buyers, who gener
ally work on the long side, was the signal for
the bears to cover, and the temporary open
ing weakness wasrecovered, the offerings not
being equal to the demand, which rapidly
increased as the day advanced — the shorts
showing unusual anxiety to cover their con
tracts, thus forcing prices up to a close
on the morning board of l@2J^c over the
bottom prices of the day, But on the after
noon board all this was changed, and wheat
began breaking from the first sales and
didn't stop until it was a full cent below the
morning's close. In the morning session
the leading buyers were Baker, Geo. C
Walker, and Poole & Sherman. What few
outside orders there were were mainly to sell
at a point a fraction above that reached by
the market, and in consequence were not
executed. October opened at 773-+ C, sold
down to 76% c, and then immediately started
upon the free buying noted, and after rapid
fluctuations sold up to 76,% c, at about which
poiut it closed on the morning board. But
from this point it rapidly declined when op
erations were resumed after lunch, and
closed finally at 76J^c. November opened
at 79c, sold at 75}4(w79% on the morning
board, closing at 79% c, and then dropped to
78% cm the afternoon.
Private cables say we need not look for
any improvement in the foreign demand for
the next 60 days, as English and French
farmers are marketing their crops freely at
the low prices and wheat is now in fine mill
ing condition, being earlier in this respect
than was ever known before. The idea that
our farmers will not sell freely at present
low prices is being rapidly exploded, as the
stuff continues to come in, and one broker
remarked to-day that the lower it goes the
faster they will sell.
A.M.Wright said to-day: "Despite the
liberal buying, I see nothing on which to
base the opinion that a healthy reaction can
occur until an outlet is found for the spring
wheat which is now accumulating here, and
I feel conservative about advising short sales
unless made on the upward bulges."
J. W. Rurasey observed this afternoon:
"J believe the bottom has been reached and
look for better foreign markets and liberal
business so soon as the world at large real
izes that our amateur statisticians have over
estimated our crop. These latter are the fel
lows who cause the depressed cables by mak
ing Europe believe that our grain is to be
given away, but some day they may have a
rush of brains to the head, which would make
them realize that it is much easier to raise a
crop with pencil and paper than to cover
'shorts' when no wheat is for sale."
To-day was a continuation of yesterday in
the corn pit, so far as fevcrishuess
and a feeling of weakness are con
cerned, and, notwithstanding the heavy
shrinkage in receipts as compared with that
of the two pre\ious days, coupled with free
withdrawals from store and further addi
tional contracts to ship immediately, the
pressure to realize was more urgent and tho
feeling throughout, the day was nervous and
weak, the anxiety of the timid holders being
increased by the continued hot weather,
which is maturing the crop with almost un
precedented rapidity. Trading was largely
in v scalping way, and though fluctuations
were rapid they were within narrow limits.
There are, however, reasons for thinking
that there is still a large short interest, and
that those who so successfully started th*
squeeze last week have not yet gone out of
the. deal. Withdrawals from store aggrega
ted 232,000 bushels and contracts were made
for the shipment of 24.5000 bushels. There
was a fair shipping demand for all grades
and offerings for prompt delivery, though
the reduced stock here and its wide distribu
tion among the elevators renders the work
of making up large cargoes tedious and at
times vexatious — vessels frequently being
obliged to go to several houses to get a load
of No. 2. At the opening the market was
easier and prices declined %Qi%c for the
near futures, but rallied l«ter, and under a
good demand with free buying by Kent,
Eldredge, Milmine <fe Bodman and others,
prices improved >^c, but fell off later with
numerous fluctuations of J^c. October
opened at 53}^. sold at 5 4c and closed at 53c.
November sold at 45}£@16c and closed at
the inside figure.
Said Frank Kennett: "The best local
operators are selling May and year options
freely. Even the near options are very
weak and bold operators may get large profits
selling them, but there is still danger of
G. 8. Everingham says: "Many who have
had faith in the near futures are now of the
opinion that most of the large holders have
sold out, and that the September and October
options have sold higher than they will sell
again. Whether this view be correct or not,
it is dangerous to hold the near futures of
corn any longer. The weather has been so
favorable that the new crop is maturing very
rapidly, and is now practically beyond dan
ger. Some receiving houses have made
sales to-day of new No, 2 corn to be deliv
ered this month, and while these sales may
be premature, I believe that there will be
considerable new corn received here in
October that will grade No. 2. I would rather
buy the new crop options at the large dis
counts prevailing than to attempt to bull
high priced property with an immense crop
so near at hand, simply on an expectation
that manipulation will advance prices."
Oats were dull and depressed with no buy
ers for quite liberal offerings. September
ranged at 24%@25c and closed at 24% c.
October ranged at ■ 25>£@25%c, closing at
the inside figure.
Provisions again exhibited considerable
life, with lard a* the center of attraction,
though in short ribs there was a noticeable
increase in the volume of trading. The
day's transaction in all the leading lines
made quite a fair aggregate, while prices in
the whole were stronger. Pork was . merely
nominal, what trading there was, being
contned to the long futures. October closed
at $15.50, a decline of 50c, and year at
$11.50, an advance of 30c. In the lard
market a stronger feeling prevailed than for
the two preceding days and prices recovered
somewhat from the recent depression, clos
ing 17>£c higher for October 17.1734 and 15c
higher for November at 17.28^. Ribs were
stronger and closed unchanged foi Septem
ber at $9.70 and 5e higher for October at

Chicago, Sept 10. — To-day's assessed

Milwaukee, Sept. 10. — Wheat closes
heavy, a half cent lower than yesterday.
Some lanre covering of short wheat put the
market up a little this morning, but the later
feeling was very weak all around and the in
dications indicating still lower prices. Corn
acts as if the bulge was O7er for the present,
but we do not advise trading in it for
September or October. On the one hand it
is liable to manipulation, and the other the
price is very high. We quote wheat closing,

New Youk, Sept. 10. — Stocks were a trifle
irregular at the opening. Some good buy
ing of the Grangers, Pacific Mail and Tele
graph set in later, which resulted in more
activity and better prices. Northwestern ad
vanced above par and showed much
strength. The unfavorable rumors circu
lated of late regarding it seem to have ac
complished little. Investors appear willing
to take hold of it on all declines. It is the
case also with St. Paul, as its friends feel
quite secure as regards the coming dividend.
Oregon Railway was the weakest feature,
selling at 75 as against 81 yesterday. The
market remained quite firm during the
morning, though the volume of business was
light. When the earnings of the Northwest
ern for the first week in September made
their appeararce, showing a falling off of
$35,000, the stock weakened a little. St.
Paul decreased $20,000. Omaha showed an
increase of $6,000 and was firm. Northern
Pacific, for the same period, increased
$59,000. The movement of wheat along the
line is now quite an item. The dealings at
the last were without feature and the market
closed dull. Missouri Pacific acted in an er
ratic manner, selling down from 93 to 91%.
With this exception stocks generally show
slight improvements for the day.
A Forj/cr Xabbed.
J. W. Nowlin was placed in limbo last
night by Detective Quinlan, for forgery.
The detective found his victim eating his
supper with his wife in a fashionable board
ing house at the corner of Fourth avenue
south and Sixth streets. Nowlin freely con
fessed his euilt, and seemed snrprised he
was found out so soon. His crime was
drawing a check on the Security bank for
$24 in favor of himself, and to this he forged
the name of E. M. Whiteomb. He had no
trouble in getting the paper cashed at
Moore's boot and shoe store ou North Wash
ington avenue.
Investigating the Morey Letter.
New York, Sept. 10.— Henry H. Badly,
of Morey letter fame, was examined in the
superior court special term in the supple
mentary proceedings in the suit brought by
Frank H. Marsh, in which a judgment was
recovered some time ago on a note for $930.
The object of the examination was to lind
out whether the Democratic national com
mittee OW9 Hadly anything and secure the
amount of judgment. Hadly said he would
no doubt spend anything necessary in con
nection with the investigation of the authen
ticity of the Morey letter. He could not re
member distinctly, but from a receipt which
had been published from Win. H. Price for
$300, he thought was authorized and he be
lieved he was authorized by Dickenson sten
ographer of the committee. The details were
not clearly impressed on his memory.
"Ask me at once," he said, "whether I
wrote the letter' so I can go to dinner. You
dare not do it."
Continuing be said he might have received
a letter of introduction, but he never received
one from Barnum. On being shown tin
letter of October 30, 1878, purporting to be
from Barnum, he said the letter was in Dick
inson's handwring. He did not believe the
letter was authorized by Barnum. He
thought he had no conversation with nor In
structions from Barnum before he went to
Cumberland, .Maryland. He had an Inter
view with Barnum, however, before going to
Massachusetts. He was uncertain whether
he had a lecal claim acainst the committee,
but beliaved he had an equitable claim. He
put no price on his services, but would ac
cept a thousand dollars. Legally he sup
posed he had been paid in full for the serv
ices in connection with the investigation of
the Morey letters, as he made no contract
with the committee.
Ex-United States W.H. Barnum, chairman
Democratic national committee, was ex
amined. He said, about two weeks before
opening the Democratic headquarters, in
1880, Hadley, who bad been previously Intro
duced to him, came to him for money to
start a Republican Hancock club. Hadley
w»3 told he might be spared $500. After the
publication of the Morey letter word came
from New Hampshire that Morey could be
found out about Lynn. Mass. Hadley said
he would go for his expenses only. He was
given $200 or $250 for expenses before
going. The committee were after
ward informed that Hadley had
gotten into 6ome trouble and the committee
gave him $1,000 as a simple donation. This
must have been before Hadley wrote his let
ter asking for pay for his services. The wit
ness had no recollection of promising Hadley
anything for his services and said it had not
been a subject of conversation among mem
bere of the committee that Hadley had a
claim for compensation. Barnum, in reply
to a question, said taut tiie circumstance
connected with the Morey letter made a firm
impression on his mind, but Hadley's name
was not strongly Identified with them.
