DAYS AT CHICAGO?THEY'
QUIETLY ACCUMULATED FIYE
MILLION BUSHELS OF WHEAT,
FORCING UP THE PRICE ABOUT
FIFTEEN CENTS A BUSHEL, AND
THEN QUIETLY UNLOADED AT
A BIG PROFIT.
Chicago, Aug. 5.?Six hundred thou?
sand dollars hava been t">keu out of the
wheat market on the louir side in the
past sixty days by a syndicate of traders
who are working hero through a young
New Yorker, George B. French.
The syndicate is mainly composed of
wealthy Wall street men. A number of
St. Louis traders and Joseph Deiter, of
this city, are also said to bo interested.
They started a bull campaign in wheat
over sixty (lays ago, buying July wheat
when prices were 13 to 15 cents lower
than at present. They made 'no demon?
stration of ibeir operations, but bought
wheat whenever local traders had a sell?
When the shorts tried to cover they
found there was very little wheat to be
bad, uud the syndicate quietly sat down
on their holdings and let the short sell?
ers get the prices up. They accumu?
lated a lino of over 5,000,000 bushels,
and the price was run up 15 centd. They
took especial pains to sell on the sharp
advances, and .while there were a great
many taller8 who expected that they
would hold the market stilt up to the
last,the French syndicate quletly worked
out of their holdings Friday, making a
profit of $41)0,000.
They replaced their line with Septem?
ber around 70 cents,and in the past three
days havf sold 7,000,00(1 bushels at a
profit that netted them $?.00,000, making
their aggregate winnings $600,000.
JACK GILROY DEAD.
The Popular Baseball Player Pusses
Away at Norfolk.
Norfolk, Aug. 5.?Jack Gilroy, Nor?
folk's favorite pitcher, died at St. Yin
cent's Hospital last night, after an ill?
ness of about two months. Gilroy was
born in Washington twenty-two years
ago. This was his third season, the first
being as utility man with Washington,
and the other with Norfolk as pitcher
About eight weeks ago in Hartford he
collided with Heine and was severely
hurt, but pitched two games after tin t,
winning both of them. When the team
reached here he was a very sick'man, and
was sent to the hospital, jwhere he was
operated on for an appendictis. Five
other operations were performed before
be died, the immediate cause of his death
being Inflammation of the stomach. ?
His mother was with htm and will ac?
company his remains to Washington.
Mammer Smith will go w'tti them also.
Gilroy was the most popular player Nor?
folk ever had, and genuine regret is ex?
pressed by all classes.
Washington, Aug. 5.--Nowhere will
more reirret be expressed at the death of
the young ball player, Jack Gilroy,than in
this city,where he was'born and spent his
bovhood days. His friends were leeion
here, as be had established himself firmly
lu the hearts of Washlngtonlans by his
genial and manly qualities. He played
ball practically all) bis life', beginning as
the Catcher of star organizations of the
FMrst ward when but a boy. In 1804,
when the Departmental League was or?
ganized, he was called on to play by the
War Department team, as he was an em
loye of that office at the time. He also
played with the Wmhington Stars, then
one of the finest amateur teams in the
District. Ills finest work in amateur cir?
cles in this city, however,was when, dur?
ing the season of 1895,ho played with the
Washlugton Light Inlantry team. He
was considered one of the finest utility
men in the business,playing both pitcher
and catcher, as well as any of the field?
ing positions, with equal ability. As a
batter his equal could not be found in the
In the latter part of that season the
Washington team was sorely pressed for
players, several being on the sick list. On
August 31 Manager Schmelz tried several
local men, including Phil Wi/.ner, a short
scop, and Bucklnghnm and Gilrcy,
pitchers. Buckingham was sent in to
pitch against the St. Louis Browns on
that day, but lasted 'only three innings.
Gilroy succeeded him and allowed the op?
posing team but fivehlts in the remaining
six innings. The game was lost through
no fault of his, however. He was signed
by the management .and pitched several
games with much success. He was
farmed out to the Norfolk t?am when
the Senators had too many pitchers early
last season, and after 'the Norfolk club
purchased his release be became quite a
favorite in that town.
His mother and family reside at 2407

RATCHFORD FEELS HAPPY
OVER THE CLOSING DOWN OF
DE ARM ITT'S MIKES.
Wheeling, W. Va., Aug. \ti. ?A devel?
opment of tiie strike that is likely to
cause ?reut trouble is the eviction of ten?
ants from the houses of the mine compa?
nies in this city ami Eastern Ohio.
Notice was served by the Gilchrist Min
'ng Company, of this city,and the Frank?
lin Company, near Uellairo, Ohio, to day
upon the strikius: workmen that they
must move out within ten days or be
evicted on three days' notice. The strik?
ers are indignant, having been broaght
to believe by the agitators that they
have paid for their houses every year
they have occupied them. There are
threats of hurtling the whole town of
Franklin, which consists of mining tene?
ments only, If the order iseuforced.
Another cause of complaint is that there
are no new men to occupy the houses and
the move is merely coercion.
The miners are netting hungry'in the
Eastern Ohio district anil to-day half a
dozen wagons were sent out to solicit
provisions. These solicitors were only
There is no noticeable change in the
number of men working in any of the
West Virginia coal fields to day. J. W.
Rae, James B. Wood and Ed. L. Davis,
who arc in charge of the strike at Fair
mount, went to .Clarksburg, where they
held u big meeting at night. The Clarks?
burg district is about tied up and the
miners are enthusiastic.
No move has been made toward a'strike
in the Watscu mines at Fairmount yet
and but fifty men are out among the. 501)
employed there. Messrs. Rae, Davis and
Wood are making canvass of that district
and will personally meet every miner
there before the end of the week.
In the Kanawha and New River valley
the men at four miues Znra still out and
there is no change.. The report that 10,
000 meu had struek'on the *Nortolk and
Western is not verified and is believed
to be unfounded.
Parkersburg, W. Vs., Aug. 5.?Upon
the application of ex-Ciovernor A. B.
Fleming, representing the Monongah
Coal Compauy of Fairmount and bond?
holders of the company, Judge Jackson,
in the United States circuit court here,
issued a temporary 'njuoctiou to-day to
be argued and determined as to its per?
manency September 3.
The injunction restrains Eugene V.
Debs and numerous othei s, named and
unnamed, from conspiring to prevent the
miners of the Monongah Coal Company
from continuing at work. It prohibits
meetings and marches on the highways
and covers every form of conspiracy that
may be entered Into to induce the miners
to quit work.
The order is almo."t identical with that
issued by Judge Mason, of the Fair
mount circuit courtaUpftn the application
of the same company, except that it is a
little more sweeping.
Columbus, O., Aug. 5.?Pr?sident
Ratchford was happy this morning over
the news from Pittsbnrg. "I do not
know of anything that could have aided
the miners more or their cause," said he,
"than the shutting down of De Armitt's
mines. Tliev are closed for goo''. We
can now devote our whole attention to
the West Virginia operators."
He was asked what lie bad to say in re?
gard to the charge made by De Armitt
that the operators of West Virginia bad
contributed $10,000 to push the strike
along in Ohio and Pennsylvania. "Do
Armitt always cries 'fraud' when be is
cornered," said he. "You may say for
me," said Mr. Ratchford, "that the
statement that the West Virginia opera?
tors contributed anything or had any?
thing to do with this strike Is an unqual?
ified lie. I shall say so in a circular let?
ter which I shall issue to-morrow." A
dispatch from President Carson, of the
Illinois Miners, this morning announces
that 1,000 miners; cm ployed in the. Du
quoin district, on the Ohio river, have
joined in the strike.

TO HIS PROBABLE SUCCESSOR.
JUDGE DAY MENTIONED.
Washington, Aug. 5.?That oft para?
ded story of the retirement of Associate
Justice Field from the supreme bench
has made its npiiearauce again. This
story is lepcutcrl so often that if it ever
docs come true nobody will believe it
until it has been attested by a transcript
from the olllcial records. That Justice
Field was to retire was first announced
chree or four year ago, .but the well
known antipathy of the aged jurist for
Mr. Cleveland was so prououueed that ho
would not give that President the oppor?
tunity of naming his succtssor.
Justice Field has had a long and hou
orable career in couuectiou with .the
supreme court of the United States. If
he lives until the ltith of this month he
will have passed the record established by
Chief Justice Marshall and will have
served one day longer than that distiu
guished member of the court. It has long
been Justice Field's am hi t ion to excel
that record, and he bids fair to accom?
plish bis hope, and it is, doubtless, the
near approach of the day when that wish
will be realized that has led to the re?
newal of 'he story of his retirement.
In coin i ctiv.ii with the retirement feat?
ure of the story, it is said that Attorney
Genera) McKenna was to be put upon
the bench, and Henry Hitchcock, of Nt.
Louis, president of the'Americau Par As?
sociation, made attorney general. As
usual with all BUCh'rumora the most care?
ful search tor corroboratlon failed to find
anyone who Kn?w anything about the re?
The suggestion that Attorney General
McKenna would be chosen to succeed
Justice Field is due entirely to the fact
that Justice Field came from California
and that Mr. McKenna is from the same
Stute. Such a conclusion does not
necessarily follow, and it Is said that the
President is not at all likely to go so far
West for his Justice if he should happen
to have the privilege of naming one. In
Ohio it is believed; that wheu Judge Day
was induced to give up his practice and
take the Assistant Secretaryship of
State, he was promised somothlng better,
and more to his liking, when the time
came that it couid be given. He is a
gooc iawyer,and would make, his friends
say, an excellent jurist. There is no
Ohio man on the court now,and it is more
than probable if a vacancy occurred on
the bench Judge Day would be the man
to win the prize.

MADE ON THE WONDERFUL
GOLD BEARING VEINS?HE DOES
NOT ANTICIPATE ANY STARVA?
TION IN THAT COUNTRY" THIS
YEAR?THERE ARE HUNDREDS
OF CREEKS RICH IN GOLD NOT
YET FOUND BY" PROSPECTORS.
O'towa, Ode., Aug. 5. ?Inspector
Strickland, who 1ms spent two", years in
the Yukon, arrived liere to-day on busi?
ness with the Government. Speaking of
the Kloudikt, he said:
"Thete has been no exaggeration of
tbe richness of the goal fields. I have
seen nothing in the newspapers in regard
to the great strikes that is not true. The
amount of gold is unlimited. There are
hundreds of c-eeks. rich in gold-beating
placers, not yet entered by prospectors.
Of course, all the claims in the creeks
now opened are taken up, but those are
only beginnings, I believe, of much
greater f nds. Many men, 1 know, who
Strock paying streaks, took out as much
as $200,000. Many others averaged be?
tween $100.000 and $200,000, while
others, again, ranged only from $5,000 to
"1 do not anticipate any starvation in
that country this year. Most of the
miners who are in nre supplied with a

be able to supply any deliciency. It is
verv wrong for any one to attempt a trip
to tho gold country in winter. I only
know of throe or four persons who ever

Mr. Strickland lenves for the \Vest,aud
will, take on the 22d Instant from Regina
a party of mounted police for the Yukon.'
Agents for a leading timber ftrrh have
been engaging meu to go to the Klondike,
country as rivermen. The wages offered,
$10 a month,are certainly uot excessive in
comparison with the inducements of $10
to $15 per day offered for miners on the
spot. But the prospect for employment,
in tbe lumber woods here is rather un?
promising at present owing to the high
American tariff. Under these circum?
stances tho offer of employment in the
Yukon district is looked upon as a bo?
nanza, ami tho agents nre having their
pick of the best rivermen iu the district.
The all important work of "gettiue
there" and of getting in early supplies to
the Klondike via the headwaters of tho
Yukon, their experience, paddle and
"lump line" will render then valuable.
