Interest in the elections this week natural
ly tended to restrict the volume of trade.
particularly in the south, where it inter
fered with mercantile collections. But
within a few days the influence of more
seasonable weather west and northwest,
together with the emphasis with which
political questions have apparently been
sett led, have incn vised the confidence
of many merchants and manufacturers in
a pnwjiect for nn increased rate of ini
pwvement in general trade in the near
future. Chicago and St. Ixmis manu
facturers and business men already report
evidences of a tendency on the part of in
terior buyers to pun-hose for future deliv.
From such iron centers as Philadelphia,
Pittsburg and Chicago relatively greater
steadiness is reported in quotations for
staple brands of ir.m and steel than for
month past. There is an increased ship

demand for shoes, hats and clothing.
Foreign coiniM-tition with domestic plain
woolen dress goods is not iceahlc; fn-e or

large decreases In comparison with the
World's fair traffic, a year ago. Southern

make the best showing, and the south

favorable cotnuirisons with last year.

" Watched the Transit of Wercnty. "
Xlw Yokk,' Xov, jo. The transit of
lercury, , -which roccurrod thi, morning,
caused much interest not onJy among col

but among the amateur astronomers as
well, and they were all busy during the
event taking observations. The fact that
the I'nitcd States was the most advan

to 48 years and 5 months, mid 25 years and
ti months of t hat service were spent at sea.
Kven during the seven years he has held
the rank of rear admiral, in a time whi n
few admirals make more than one cruise

The year ls.2 saw him a lieutenant
commander blockading .South Atlantic

From that time to the end of the war he
was in the thickest of the fighting. He
was in the engagement at Fort Macon, on
the Mohican; commanded the Chocura on
the west gulf hlockiule, the Port Royal
in the same service, was in the liattie" of

HE IS A "FIGHTING M'COOK."
The Brigadier General Who ly Howard's

WASHliTON. Nov. It'. Brigadier Gen
eral Alexander McD nvcll Mi-Cook has
ls-en nppointe-.l major gineral of the
1'nited States army, vice (ieneral Howard,
retiretl, nnd Colonel Janus W. Forsyth, of
the Seventh cavalry, has lvn promoted to
brigadier g-nerid to succeed MeCook.
tieneral McCook is nt pn-sent in command
of the department of Colorado. He has
lieon forty-seven years in the military ser
vice and is one of that famous family of
warriors, the "Fighting McCuoks." He is
a graduate of the West Point Military
acudt-mv which lie entered as a cadet in
1M7. He was a captain in the regular
army at the outbreak of the war from
which he emerged with the rank of lieu
tenant colonel. But in addition to this he
had at the beginning a volunteer com
pany as colonel of the First Ohio infantry
and one year later received his volunteer
commission as a major general.
For gallant service during the war he
was brevete.l a major general in the reg
ular army in 15. thus anticipating by
twenty-nine years the pood fortune which
has fallen to him by this last appoint
ment. The race for t he place vacated by
Major (Ieneral Howard's retirement was
between fienornl McCook and tienernl
Ruger, the latter commanding the depart
ment of California, and tho former was
peculiarly fortunate in receiving the ap
pointment over (ieneral Ruger who
stands at the head of the list of brigadier
general liecause he would otherwise re
tire in a few months with the Tank of
brignd ier puieral. ..
As it Ts U.-neral finger's promotion will

Colonel James Fortyth, who will "beccitne

distinguished cavalr y officers in the Indi
a n campaigns. At present lie is colonel
of the Seventh cavalry, and in command
of the art illery school at Fort Riley, Kas.
He aiso is a graduate of West Point and
is a veteran of the late war.
Major General Miles will transfer his
command to Xew York, succeeding Major
General Howard as com inander of t lie de
partment of the east. In the natural order
(ieneral Forsyth would take his place us
commander of the department of tho Mis

career ho was utterly reckless of danger
while on tin; battlefield, and this spirit
of fearlessness contributed largely to
tho lovo and esteem in which ho was
held by his armies. There was a enrious
belief among tho English in Napoleon's
time that hs had never been wounded,
and indeed the report was current that
he carefully, if not in a cowardly man

Nothing could be more contrary to I ho

times severely wounded, but as he wish

that good fortune never deserted him.

Don't talk to a man from southern

take in your creel for dessert without

what ho fishes with for the strange,

The men who catch these fi.h that

The xroccss of catchiug a jowfish is a
progress-ive and interestiz:g one. The
fishers begin at t'.io U-giuning. With
bent pins or dip nets they look for min
nows or sardelles. The onarry secured,
it promptly becoine3 bait, and the con
course is treated to smelt fishing. Then
comes the smelt's turn in the succes
sion, no is imp'.l y, and the fisherman,
with a heavier rod and a lrgi-r hook,
goes to the other sM? of the wharf for
a halibut or a sea lus.
When the bait, dead or alive, is ready,
the stoutest termed man on the wharf
picks rp the line, lis swings the two
or three pounds of bait amend his head
like an Indian dix-s tho bolas and hnrls
it seaward Tho great line, as thick as
a lead pencil, coils cut after the hook,
and that is nearly all nutil tho fidi
Incidentally toothpicks play quit a
part in tho fishing. Each fisherman
takes a handful with him when he leaves
l he breakfast table. They stick one in
a crack at the tp of a pile and loose ly
loop the lino around it. The shore part
of the line is coiled on the wharf, and
the end is fust to an empty powder keg
or some such thing lhat will lloat well,
tin the toothpick :s stuck a bit of white
rag, and as half a dozen rr a dozen lines
are used at once there is a string of
these little signal flags all along the
dock. The fisherman ha nothing moro
to do for awhile th:-.n to watch the flags.
When one goes down, it means that
something has taken the bait. After
gathering in the barracouda heads or
tiie impaled halibnf the jewfish start3
away like the locomotive on a fast ex
press. Down goes tho signal flag.
Everyliody around runs for the line.
They know they er.n't hold the fish, bnt
the resistance makes it hnrdfT for him
and helps them to tire him out the ul
timate object. The great fish does not
struggle at first, but moves steadily sea
ward, pulling the line through tho
men's hands. Occasionally, when the
fish weighs less than COO pounds Ihcy
can tiro him out without paying out all
of the line, but nsually it a:l pies, and
presently the struggle is transferred to
the wat;r. The empty powder keg
bounces over the water most erratical
ly, tho men chase it in a Isiat, and
when they catch it hold on. Then tho
real fun of jewfishie.g liegius. It is just
sport for a fish of atiy size to tow a
Whitehall around the bay, and it, is pret
ty rongh sailing in his wake. As soon
as he realizes that there is alight on the
jewfish seems to forget that lie is a staid
bottom fish. All the steam of his black
bass ancestors gets riley, and he plunges
aud turns twists cud strikes. SSouie
where down in tbo cavern of his gullet
he has an arrangement of bone like a
couple of millstones, and when he dis
covers he cannot spit out the book he
tries to swallow it and grind UO ij,l0
apart, so the slack has to lie carefully
attendedto. There aro some tremendous
fish iu San picgo bay,' and though tii'o
'hooks' ore made of hand forgedtool steel
they have snapped rinu).Tf them. ' " 1,
If everything goe well, if the hook
holds and the fish dnn not grind tho
line, if he steers away from submerged
buoy chains and docks the fight must
end in the death of the fish. Somctim
he tows the lniat for three hours before
his strength is gone and ho is hauled
to the surfa. The death struggle is
worst of alL The fish is dragged to tho
top and lies there, apparently all but
dead. Then they drive a harpoon into
him, aud the sting of the steel starts all
his life again. The harpoon line holds
him near tho surface, and he makes a
great raee for a little while, but, of
course, it cannot last. At the end the
fish is towed back to tlie dock, and there
the floating populat ion of Kan Diego is
assembled. Everybody gets hold of a
ropo and hoist.s the giant fish upon the
dock, ana there the tired monster floun
ders, its month paying like a tunnel
and its eyes, big as baseballs starting
from their sockets. Jjau Francisco Ex
