That is the general opinion on the "street,"
and in financial circles. But the flurry
wound up with the most interesting feature
of the last few
days the squeez

bnb by announcing that hite
had pone under and could not
meet his contracts. There wasn't
much surprise because it had been expect
ed. Mr. Wife's own statement was: "The
unexpected drop in all securities has made
it impossible to realize on securities, or to
collect margins to meet my engagements.'
Caught in the " I oil utriala."
Shrinkage ia "industrials" was the
cause, but no statement of liabilities couhl
be obtained. Liter in the day it was re
ported that llavemeyer had cone to
White's rescue and supplied him with
funds. White was csked if he had received
offers of pecuniary assistance and said:
"It is not so. If I had ln-en offered 1,0
000 at any time to-day I would have grab
bed it in a moment, and with it in my
hands I would hr.ve taken hold of certain 1
bears in Wall street, Housed the life out of j
them, skinned them and then nruled their
hides to the fence ia my back yard.'' How
ever, he said that lie expected to be able to
resume payments to-day, and it is believed
that the llavemeyer story is true.
In lie Stocll Ilvcliunce.
The market was very tense in the morn
Tag and there was much excitement. The
first rally of consequence took place at
about 2 p. m., ami it was pronounced
throughout the fjeneril list and was kept
up to the close. This threw the brokers
into a furore of jy and they acted like
mailmen. The relief from the strain wi s
tremendous and had to have an outlet.
Brokers hugged and kissed each othi r,
hats were thrown in the air, many of ti e
younger members cut surprising capers e n
the floor, much to the amusement of the
The Hunks Are All Uiclit.
One of the officials of the clearing hon se
in commenting upon the situation said:
'Even shouh1 there be a pressure upon the
banks which is now practically an impos
sibility they are in a position to stand it.
The banks have made money in the last
year. In July, lS'.'l. the bauks of the as
sociation had 700,000 surplus. Today
they have $70,000. This means consid
erable lee way, beyond the point where
stringency would begin to be felt. I trace
the present trouble in the street rather to
distrust and lack of confidence than to act
ual depreciation of values."
Bat Where Is the Cordate Trust?
The National Cordase company is the
the principal factor in the panic. The biff
trust is in the hands of receivers, and if
not exactly a total wreck, is in snch a des
perate condition that it will require the
most skillful and shrewd management to
straighten out the present tangle in its af
fairs and put it upon its pins again, if this
cati ever be accomplished.
THE JOKE WAS ON INGALLS.
He Hons His Granger Costume and Is
Taken for a Maniac
Atchison, Kan., May '. Ex-Senator
John J. Ingalls went, attired in his
farming costume, into the country south
of town to look after some property. Be
ing in need of some information he
stopped at a scboolhouse to question the
teacher. A report had liecn in circulation
that there was a crazy man wandering
about in the vicinity, and Miss St. Clair,
the teacher, taking the old-looking visitor
for the insane person, became frightened
and ran from the building, followed by
the whole school. Discovering her mis
take the teacher returned to the school
house, but the distinguished visitor Lad

Washington-, May C President Cleve
land has rejoiced the Democrats of West
Virginia, and many friends of the late
Senator Kenna, loth Democrats and Re
publicans, by appointing his widow, Anne
B. Kenna, postmistress at Charlotte, W.
Ta., vice Henry C. McWhorter, removed.
This appointment has been urged upon the
president persistently by the West Vir
ginia delegation. The late Senator Kenna
was never a money-maker and money
saver, and when he died he left a large
family of little children and very little
property save a comfortable residence.
The president has also appointed .'Allan

Chicago, May 6. During the opening
exercises at the World's fair grounds Mon
day a balloon, to which a title deed to Chi
cago property was attached, was liberated
by "Bob" Givins. The balloon has. not
been heard from since. When last seen
it was passing over the lake nearly sixty
miles from Chicago, and was about half a
mile in the air. The time for the return of
the deed will expire at noon Saturday. If
the balloon is found the fact should be reported.
CYCLONE DAMAGE IN OHIO.
Many Buildings Wrecked at Wilmington,
but Nobody Killed.
Wilmington, O., May 6. A cyclone of
terrific proportions has struck this leauti
ful city leaving its wake strewn with de
bris of all kinds. Trees were but as straws
and few are left standing that encountered
the storm. Almost in the twinkling of an
eye the storm was over aud the half fran
tic populace timidly emerged to find the
streets filled with wrecked chicles, wires,
roofs of all kinds and fallen buildings.
The beautiful city hall, lately remodeled,
is badly damaged, every church in the
town except the Presbyterian was badly
wrecked, the heavy bell of the Christian
church was blown some distance iuto the
street, and the spire was blown off, (id
crashed through the roof and ceiling, the
Catholic church, spire was left standing
while the remainder of the building was
demolished. A small child at the home of
J. K. Betts was takeu out of bed asleep
after the storm, while it was surrounded
with bricks r.nd fallen timbers. It is mi
raculous that no one was killed outright.
Jonathan Hi-tman and Caleb Hazard were
seriously hurt by falling timbers and
William Bluom and several others were
slightly injured. A large number of busi
ness houses and dwellings were badly
Played Havoc at Other I'laces.
Cincinnati, May ft One of the heav
iest storms for years passed over llich
mond, Ky. Three houses were struck by
lightning. The occupants of the dwellings
had narrow escapes. At Washington, W.
Va., hail covered the ground to the depth
of an inch. Fruit and vegetation were en
tirely destroyed, and nearly every pane of
glass in the village, including those in the
large green houses, was broken.
At Kalida, O., houses were unroofed,
causing much damage to property. No
WILLFUL, WAYWARD, RECKLESS.
About Tell the Story of the Kccent Chi
rac Girl Suichle.
Chicauo, May ft The double attempt at
suicide by Olivia and Mercedes Piows has
been successful in one case, and the elder
girl lies cold ia death. The coroner is
holding an investigaiion and the facts
seem to be that the girls were like many
other girls, and boys, too wayward, will
ful ami rebellions tjuurrcled with their
mother, refused to stay at home, and gen
erally acted the part of foolish virgins.
Nothing against their honor is aliened or
suspected. But it would seem that they
were bound "to have their own way," and
failing to obtain it ia this world concluded
to try the next.
Mercedes, although she took as much
morphine as her elder sifter, is getting
well, but her character is indicated in her
conduct as she lies in a lied that came very
near lieing her deathbed. She did not
know that "Ola" was dead but wished she
herself was. She told the coroner all
about the attempt at suicide, saying that
they had talked about it for months, lieing
despondent and unhappy, but why she
wouldn't tell. "It's none of your business.
I won't tell it, and you can't make me
either." It was the s ame with the attempt
to find who had unlawfully sold the mor
phine. She had promised not to tell and
"you can't make me tell." She didn't care
if she was put in jail. .
The Kansas Wheat Crop.
Wichita, May 6. C. Wood Davis, the
statistician of food products, is in town
and expressed the opinion that the wheat
crop of Kansas would not exceed 25 per
cent, of an average, Oats he considers in
but little better condition than wheat. He
regards the generally poor prospects for
these crops as a blessing, and says that the
failure of wheat and oats, taken in con
junction with the decreasing proportion of
food products to the cumber of consum
ers, forever puts an end to low prices. He
says the man does not live who will ever
again see 3-cent hogs or 20-cent corn in
How Mnc-li Is Life Worth?
Washington, May 0. The loss of an un
known schooner off Plum island, Mass.,
and the death of the crew, just four days
after the life-saving crew had quit work
for the season, has aroused attention tothe
failure of the government to keep ti.e sta
tions equipped all the year around. It is
according to law that the stations are
closed. There are many obstacles in the
way of opening the stations all the year
around and the statistics show that the
loss of life has leen very light from
wrecks between May and September.

Hopeful in the Face of Despair A
Mother's Awful Deed.
Denisox, Tex., May 6. An application
for pardon has been made to Governor
Hogg by Charles Luttrell, who is to hang
May 17, for murder. It develops that
Luttrell has made a startling statement in
regard to the erribje butchery of women
here last spring that will probably secure
him a pardon .or commutation of sentence
to life imprisonment. Jt is alleged that
Luttrell confessed that since 181s), Colonel
Brown, John Carlisle and friends bad
killed 24S men in order to destroy
testimony against them in murder ca3es.
In 1678 James Brown killed a stableman,
John Carlisle was induced to kill another
man named Sparks, and Tom Shannon,
their latest victim was an eye witness to
Recalls a Chicago Tragedy.
There were many other eye witnesses,
and Brown and Carlisle being wealthy
started in to kill evidence against them,
and Luttrell's confession is but a glimpse
of the awful reality of the unparalleled
series of crimes that cost 2-S men their
lives and the perpetrators thousands of dol
lars. Luttrell would not give the names
of the victims, but claims that if afforded
protection he will tell enough to satisfy the
authorities that his story is true. Colonel
Brown shot and killed two police officers at
Garfield park in Chicago about a year ago,
LYNCH'S DOCKET WAS BACKWARD.
So Here Are Three Cases Hushed Through
in Fast Time.
ALBrorEHQVE, N. M., May ft Antonio
Martinez, Antonio Jose Barlas and Victor
ian Aragon, three murderers, were taken
from jail at Las Lunas by masked men
and lynched. The first two murdered an
old woman, Mrs. Manuela Miereles, after
first assaulting her and horribly mutilat
ing her body. Aragon was the self-coa-fessed
murderer of Mrs. Beatrice Aragon,
j his cousin. Alout midnight a large body
of men surrounded the jail. Three of them
I approached the jail ami tol 1 the jailor
they were constables with a prisoner.
The jailor opened the door, when he was
pounced upon, bound hand and foot and
the jail keys taken from him. The thrt !
murderers were securely handcuffed acd
shackled and hanged to a tree outside twe
jail, where their bodies were found next
morning. Half a dozen murders have
been committed near Ias Lunas in the
past two months and the citizens took this
method of warning the vicious element
that crime must cease.
CARLYLE HARRIS DOOMED.
But His Brother Serins To Be. a Hopeful
Sort of Man.
Sing Sing, N. Y., May ft Allan Harris,
brother of Carlyle W. Harris, the con
demned murderer, says that he still hopes
to save his brother. This is in spite of the
fact that the governor, after appointing a
lawyer to examine all the new evidence
collected by the defense some of which
was positive as to the use of morphine by
Helen Potts-Harris, Carlyle's wife has re
fused to interfere.
Harris seems calm and says he expects
to be executed next Monday. The prepa
rations being made by the warden point to
Monday as the day upon which Harris will
pay the penalty for his crime. His guards
say he seems to accept his fate in the spirit
of a philosopher. He appeared to be more
at ease than at any time since the taking
of testimony in his beh:;lf begun.
The Situation at Brookhaven.
Jackson, Miss.May 6. Fifty men armed

Judge Chrisman says he willl never rest
