of flic f > aiil < lnirTiou of frcliry Gfens &
Co , writes of the situation In Wall street :
During the last week the Mnlne oxclte
mcnt has tnkcn thorough posaef'ilon of Wnl
ntrcet. Whllo among the public nt largi
there lias been n gradinl n'jatcmcnt o
foiling nnd n growing disposition to hops
that Invcfctlgntlon may nhow the dlBnsttr to
have arisen from nccldcnt , yet on the stoc !
exchange there has been each succeeding
day more Inclination to apprehend an out
tome that mav Imperil hnnnonloui relations
with Rpnln , Thin paradox ndmlts of easy
explanation. Among the habitues of Wai
Rtretl there Is an element prone to sonsa
tloiiB nnd to exaggeration of the significance
nf exciting pvinto : ardent In their opinions
quick. If not rnwi , In their conclusions
i.lvfn to the highly RcaHoned contents o
Home of the dally pipers and therefore
prone to accept the warlike bias with
which the unfolding this unfortunate In
rldent la nerved up day lifter day. These
operators , though restricted In their trans
nctlonH , are somewhat Important In mini
bor , and their sales hnvo an exnggerato <
( ffect upon the market ; they have their In
fluencc on the opinion of the moment , nm
Its effect IH demoralizing. Herein lies thf
explanation of much or the effect of the
Maine dluiHti-t upon prli.es.
It Is also to bo tnkcn Into account tin
previously the market was predisposed to
n reaction from other pauses Strong oper
ators hud actively worked the market ii )
to a relatively high tange of prices Two
weeks ago they Intl begun to realise their
profits , and their silcs had been Interprclet
by thu Inltl.itul as n warning of coming
Fqu.ills When the news from H-ivani
struck the imrkct It gave force to them ,
expectations of a corning break nnd wlthli
n few days has prprlplt itcd a fall of 5 to '
points which otherwise would have been
upread over n larger period , In all this trte
room "bears" have taken an active hand
selecting the weak spots , attacking stoj
orders nnd adding fuel to the exeltempn
by sensational rumors From the nature of
the rise little effort has been made bv the
"bull" side to arrest this drift of affairs
It Is not bv any meins certain what the
olllrl il Investigation Into the disaster to the
'Maine in ly develop So far as It has gone
though nothing conclusive has been dis
covered , yet such partial Information as 1
cli-incd tends nther to encourage feirs of
trouble with Spiln than to nllny such ap
prehensions Amid this uncertainty nobody
cares to buy l.irgcly even at the greatlj
reduced prices , for It hardly admits of a
doubt that In the event of a threatening
outcome of the Investigation , prices vvotilt
go still lower. This Is u prudent attitude
under the circumstances , nnd wo canno
reeimmend buying nt present , except upon
sharp drops and for short turns
One hopeful feature , of the market has
been the revival of the London derrnnd for
HPcuritles , not less than SO.fKX ) shares having
been t'iken during the week The. new1 *
relating to China and Africa hns been dis
tinctly favonblo The assurances given oil
bj fie French government have dlmlnlshci
the. nnnrehenslon of trouble with HngHnc
over their competition for territory In In
terior Africa , and Lord Salisbury's utter
ances have had a like effect. In the presem
rensltlve condition of her home politics Ii
spems the last thing to be expected ol
Fnnce Is that , for the more acquisition of
law territory of doubtful value to her "he
woull nish Into a war wltn one of the most
powerful nations Moreover , French Jingo
ism IB restricted to a eompiratlvely unml
group of speculative , politicians , to whose
IrfliiPtice with the government there Is a
The Chinese question seems to have
reached a nolutlon which will preserve peace
In the far east for at least some years to
com" . Kngland has concluded a treaty with
th Chinese emperor of far-reachlnp consc-
qtii nrcs. In provides for a joint loan of
1C.KXCOO ) by Great Urlt.aln nnd Germany
which Insures the Immediate return of Wei-
Hal-Wei to Cilneso occupation nnd shuts
out UusBla from the controlling Influence
nt 1'ekln which It had hoped to cement
through becoming the lender. England hni
also secured the Immediate opening of nl
the navigable waterways of China to the
traders of all nations and the opening of
two free ports two years hence. At the
same time China pledges Itself not to dis
pose of Its rights In any portion of tht
great Ynng-Tse valley the chief region of
rnlnn's resources to any foreign power.
The effect of all thN Is to make thrce-
fourthH of China free to the commerce of
the world nnd to leave little room for the
schemes of annexation which certain powers
hnvo been attempting to realize. The per
petuity of this settlement Is assured by the
fart that It receives the moral support ol
all tro eommcrclil and pacific nations , aiK1
by the further consideration that Germany
appc-nrs to have transferred Its co-operation
from Ilussla to Great Hrltaln. To finance ,
thn significance of thcaj events In Asia .ant
A.'r'c.i ' Is that they relieve the old world of
the great war dangers that have been Im
pending nnd afford assurances of the world's
comirerce l-olng conducted under pacific
rnll"les The ominous China question and
tlio Greco-Turkish question having In nuc-
cetslon been disposed of there remains llltio
now to obstruct the return of confidence In
the llnanclal circles of Hurope. Tne open
ing of China , with Us vast resources and Itj
4t 000/00 of people , to free Intercourse with
the triulng nations must Immediately give
n great impulse to International commerce
and sl-ould confer large benefits upon the
Linlttd States as a competitor for the trade
of the celestial empire. Thcso are the m iv
thlngH that underlie and sustain the Invest
ment markets , and they betoken nn ulti
mo lu advantage to American securities
In respect to Cuba , symptoms are appear
ing which are suggestive of possible amelio
rations of the situation. W hear of Intima
tions which seem hopeful of a possible solu
tion of that terrible problem. The action ol
the Cuban autonomy committed u few days
ago bus attracted little attention , nnd yet
It Is lilgialy Important nn a symptom nt
least , If for nothing more. When u largo
majority of that body of loyal citizens of
Cuba asks for n further liberalization ol
the autonomy , for n reduction of Cuba's
portion of the war debt to JIOO.OOO.OOJ and
for an extension of the committee by fifteen
members to consist of Cuban pcnernls and
leaders It means a policy of material con
ciliation In quarters closely connected with
the governing powers. Moreover , there
npenis to be some reiiwon to suppose that the
gpnnlsh government Is disposed to extend
the liberties of the Cubans beyond what Is
provided for under the existing autonomy ,
AK > It l given out that negotiations are
pc-ndlng1 between Spain and our government
looking to 11 bnHls of settlement that should
flatlsfy the Cubans. It Is to be hoped that
these Indefinite Indications point to some
thing bettci coming. For the moment , how
ever , the situation calls for a conservative
caution In llnnnclal Interests.
Thcro should be assurance of peace In the
fact that It Is simply absurd for Sp.iln to
think for even u moment of going to war
with the Unltcil States. If they will only
reflect and wclE'h In the scale the difference
on one Hide and that on the other they would
Certainly liesltnto before talcing such a rash
flU'p. l't 113 mo wherein the difference

population numbers only 17,000,00 of people ,
Thu resources of the nation and of thu
people are very limited Its credit Is equally
no. It Is true It 'has ' a navy nt the present
time probably equal to that of thla country ,
but owing to the lack of resources and credit
of the government It cannot be rapidly or
materially Increased. Any nation that goes
to war with the United States must realize
the fact that U would continue until one
cldo or the otlu < r was exhausted , for the
United Btnteu would never mmcmler to any
rower on earth. Thla la the best showing
that Spain can make.
The United States has resources nnd credit
almost without limit. It has ? 5,000.tto ( of
people possessed of energy , remarkable
iiraln power , methodical , level-headed ,
courageous , determined and with poucm of
treat endurance a people that have shown
tliemsclvex to be great In peace and grunt
In war. Our own civil war demonstrated
that fact , and nlt o that the people of the
'whole nation were uniformly brave. While
our navy Is probably only fifth amongst
nations nt thlH time , In the event of wur
nnd before- Its termination we would Iwcoino
n naval power. If necessary , equal to that
of England ; as with the credit of the na
tion , bucked by Individual help , It would be
enabled to buy all the war vissels now be-
Injr built for other notions as well ntt con-
etrnct very larg-ely at home. Many vessels

the standpoint of n , O. Dun & Co.'n Mer
cantile ngcncy , rays :
"Notwithstanding the persistent talk of
war , the money market and Undo conditions
hero continue to Improve , nnd to far as
my observation Roes from this point tno
country generally Is not much Influenced
by the pronpect of trouble with Hpaln.
Stocks are , of course , made to fluctuate
from day to day , nnd some hesitation U
manifested In Inrpo transactions. There Is
n feeling of confidence , however , wnloh leads
AfQSTjW 6J < 'rfilly to cqncludn that 4 lit-
tlo1mi h with Spain at this tlmo Ivourd
not be very damaging to American Interests ,
since that monarchy Is generally bcllovJd
to bo bankrupt and unequal lo a contest of
arms with our nation.
"The serenity of this community la not
altogether unselfish , Blncn It goes without
saying that If trouble should nrlsc the set-
coast would bear the brunt of battle , wnl'o
the Interior would be called upon for sub-
rlstenco nnd supplies.
"The week lias been busy with the en
tertainment of visiting1 delegations , nnd
reports carried back by these visitors and
forwarded from all sections of the country
prove conclusively that our exposition Is
attracting more attention than any expo
sition slncn the World's fair. Progress at
the grounds la rapid and satisfactory. The
coitracts for exhibits are about closed , nnd
wo can now form a comprehensive Idea of
Importance of the undertaking Omaha
Ins nssume.il. Information from Washing-
tor , points to the success of the movement
for the Indian exhibit , nnd the exposition
managers , with the assistance of the gov
ernment will moKo this the drawing card ,
the most unique feature nnd probably the
most cntertnlnlnn exhibition of the exposi
tion War would probably cut off some of
the foreign exhibits , and to that extent
would Interfere with the success of our
enterprise , but If we should be deprived
entirely of n foreign department the showIng -
Ing of American resources and the novcl-
tlc.s which war cannot Interfere with would
draw the crowds nnd Insure us n great sue-
"The progress upon the II & M. depot Is
"iilllclently rapid tn make It certain this
structure will be completed before the open
ing of the gates , but our terminal facilities
will be sadly overtaxed bv the crowds who
must be handled from the ( list of Juno
to the first of November , nnd It gops almost
without saying that the experience of the
railroad compmlrs during the coming sum
mer will demonstrate to nil ot them the
necessity of at least ono other largo passen
"Speaking of exposition matters again. It
Is proper to say that vpry general satisfac
tion has been expressed over the concen
tration of the construction authorities un
der one head nnd tlio high standing of
the pener.il superintendent In this com
munity makes his selection gratifying to
all friends of hnrmonv nnd efficiency in the
evpisltlnn man igemcnt.
"An Increase ot II per cent In the clear
ings vvhleh places Omaha ahead of Mil
waukee , Iluffalo and St Paul In the clear
ings for the week Is one mote Indication
of the Improved situation.
"At South Omaha the week's showing In
cattle hogH nnd sheep Is n trllle short of
last week , but there Is no occasion for com
plaint at the yards or the packing houses ,
nnd the season's hop pack continues to
maintain Its lead over last year.
"At this agency the general upbuilding
of trafilc Is shown In the Increased number
of reports demanded , and the general solv
ent condition of the country merchants Is
shown by complaln'a from the collection
agencies of comparatively little business
I think It Is generally agreed that credits
In Nebraska have never been so peed nnd
lame ducks' are fewer than ever before
In the history of this Jobbing center. Lo
cally the Increase Is largely made up ol
restaurants , saloons , refreshment stands nnd
clgnr stores , but there are other new line ;
coming In from week to week. One gooc'
manufacturing concern , recently burned out
at an Interior town , has fixed Itself In
quarters on Farnam street.
"It Is always grntlfvlnR to mo to preach
the gospel of bope. and to assure your read
ers tha' the promises of prosperity are wel
grounded. The crop conditions could nol
be better. The local Improvements are
positive and nppaient. the atmosphere nt all
the banks Is clear , nnd confidence In every
pirt of this community nnd state Is stronger
than at any time since 1652 It takes no
prophet to predict that 1808 will be a banner
year for Omaha and Nebraska. "

NEW YORK , Feb. 27. The Financier
says : The statement of the associated banks
of New York City for the week ending
February 20 Is not as disappointing In Its
uhowlngs as had been anticipated. The
events of the week made It plain that heavy
decreases were Inevitable , nnd yet as a re
sult of all the changes the banks have re
duced their surplus cash only J2.729.123 , an
amount barely as large as current engage
ments of gold from Europe. The actual
loss In specie and legal tenders was $7.418-
400 , but this was partially offset by an
Increase of $2,332,700 In specie , making the
net loss for the. week r > , OC5,700. The specie
apparently went Into half a dozen of the
It Is Interesting to note that of the entire
cash reserve of the New York banks al
least 58 per cunt Is held tn the form ol
specie. Tno loss In cash was brought about
by the heavy Hhlpments to the Interior , and
payments Into the treasury , but the full
extent of the former Is not shown In the
While the larger part of the money now
being withdrawn from New York Is doubt
less In response to Increased demands due
to better trade conditions some of it re
flects the unsettled state of mind prevail
ing with regard to the future. Hut the
New York banks generally lose n portion
of their excess balances at this season of the
year. In 1807 between the latter part of
February and the end of March the exce.ss
reserve fell off $11,000.000. The loss during
February this year bus been J12,7DOCOO. Tne
reserve , however , Is now about one-half of
what It was twelve months ago , so that
the loss affects the market rather more
acutely. Still , the sensitiveness of the situ
ation and our strong position lus regards
International balances are well shown In
the fact that even the sllcht increase In
rates last week have started gold Imports.
A continued firm m.irlcet will only empha
size this factor. For the nisment the de
moralization of the stock mniket , the heavy
liquidation and realizations have contracted
the loan item. There Is nothing , however.
Indicating tnat money Is going to be ex
cessively de.ir , even should complications
arise. A study of thu last week's operations
Illustrates psrfectly the direction in which
relief can be looked for. In other words ,
our money loaned abroad can bo made In

The htork exchange had an uncomfortable
week , owing to the collapse In Amu lean
railways , scaring the weak bulls. Many
defaulters were expected , but this hns been
nveilcd apparently , although assistance had
to be offered In some casrs. Wall street
advices were mainly lesponslble for tlio
condition of the market here , which on
Thursday closely rccembled a panic. A

CHICAGO , Feb. 2Il was a weak tiny In
wheat. July nt ono time was off IHc nm
May 2c. Closing prices showed a cent elc
clTno In uoth tptlonsl it was a narrow
market , nnd the weakness was due more to
lack of support than to the news which
however , favored lower prices. Other mar
kets were barely steady nt slight declines
corn nnd oats closing Uc lower each am
provisions declining 2'frfflEc , pork being th
weakest thing on the list.
For ft few moments after the start wheat
compared with the weakness It devolopec
later , was fairly steady. July started ' 4
lower to Uo higher , at from WHc to Wc
nnd May Ho lower nt $1 03. Lclter's broker
appeared to have some supporting orders Ii
July nt the start , and for this reason
that month showed steadiness until May
weakened badly. Then July followed. Trnd
Ing In May was very light. There were n
goad many moro selling1 orders than th
limited demand could tnke care of , th
result being n decline to J1.02. A reaction
to J1.02JI followed , then the market brok
again , and worse than before. May thl
time going to $101'4. The continued In
creasing production of contract wheat by th
mixers apparently affected May. Forty
three cars of No. 1 northern were reportci
out of private houses today , nnd twenty-tw
cars from regular sources. Most of th
routine news favored sellers. World's ship
ments of 77,000,000 bu , were looked for nex
vvee-k. Liverpool was from Ud to % d lower
nnd crop reports from California nnd India
especially from the latter country , were verj
favorable. The day's clearances from At
Inntlo ports' ' were equal to 322000 bu. North
west receipts were light at 109 cars , ngolns
212 last week nnd 230 n > ear ago. Chicago
receipts amounted to S3 cars. The weuknes
which developed In May was soon rellectei
In July. There was a good selling out by
people who have been "tailing" on the cam
pilui. , and who had become discouraged bj
thj recent downward turn to the market
nnd prices , In spite of the Letter support
declined steadily. At SS'ic for July the mar
hot hesitated for a time. A pe-rlod of dull
nebs bml narrow fluctuations set In , bu
about half an hour from the close the m r
kct developed fresh weakness under re
luwed selling of small lines , July getting
down to fsc , nnd May , which had In the
me Ultimo I allied to $102 , declined to $1.01'6
Shortly before the close Letter's broker
again pave the market some support , this
time1 in Muy the buying of a line of nbou
100.00J bu. being sulllclcnt to cause a rally
In that option to ? l.fl % which was the
closing price. This rally also lnfluence (
July t ) a limited extent , stopping the sell
Ing pressure , and starting a little covering
under which the price got back to 8SlM
SSc , where It closed.
Corn was well held , despite the weakncs
of wheat. There were plenty of selling orders
dors , but offerings were well taken , scvcra
of the larger holders Increasing their lines
and prices did not drop much A good cas !
demand wan n factor In steadying the mar
ket. May ranged from 2'i ifi297fcc to ISSM' c
and closed ( fco lower at 29V4C.
The feeling In corn was reflected In oatf
and prices suffered but little. Some weak
ness was shown at the opening , but there
were plenty of buying orders nt the sllgh
decline. Trading as a whole was limited
Cash demand was reported fair. May
ranged from 2CHc to 2o(02Cc ( , and closed
' 4o lower nt 2tc. !
A large trade was done In provisions
Se-lllng. especially of pork , was heavy. The
m.irket at first was well supported and evei
advanced for a time , but the effect of the
heavy liquidation was ultimately felt. Sell
Ing was mostly by commission houses A
the close May pork was loc lower at $1033
May lard , 23 lower nt $ o.l7' and May

CATTljU Omnha Tind more cattle than
both Kansas Clt > and Chicago combined
nnd still there were not enough nero to make
a market. Of those reported In there were
borne that wore not on sale so that the
offerings were extremely light.
IJeef Steers The few loads of fat cattle
met with ready sale nt nominally steady
prices nnd the pens were cleared nnd the
j.irds deserted at nn eai ly hour. No choice
cattle were offered so that there was noth
ing to put a top on the market , but as high
as $440 was pild for some heavy cattle
rather on the coarslsh order and $1 45 for
Hutchers' Stock Only nbout a half dozen
loids of co\vs and heifers were offered for
bale and thsy soon found their way Into
the hands of local'lslllers. The prices pild
did not show any hiateilal change as com
pared with jesterday's tccord.
Stock Cattle A-4 usual on a Saturday the
volume of business doing In the feeder
dUlbioii was very limited. There was not
much demand and few cattle on sale so
fiat the trade was devoid of any InterestIng -
The Week The week opened under quite
favorable conditions as regards the market
on beef cattle , In fact so favorable that
values were In most cases 5fflOc higher than
the close of the previous week. The ad
vantage of sellers , however , proved to bo
only temporary nnd op Tuesday , when the
arrivals were larger , a shading of values
occurred , especially In case of the common
and medium grades. Still larger receipts
and most unfavorable- advices from other
belling points occasioned still further shrink
age la values on "Wednesday , which proved
to be the low day of the week. On Thurs
day and Friday values reacted and the
week closed with values fully as good as
at the opening and a little better than at the
close ot the previous week.
An export demand hns sprung1 Into ex
istence during the past week and Armour
has a buyer here who has been given liberal
orders. Unfortunately the kind of cattle
wanted have been scarce , A very con
siderable proportion of the receipts nt this
point Is made up of half fat steers , many
of them so wanting In finish that the feed
ers are buying them to be taken back Into
the country to be again placed on feed.
Only well finished cattle are wanted for
export and such as were to be had met
with ready sale the past week at current
Tile country bought quite freely of stock
cattle and feeders. The supply of feeders
consisted almost entirely of warmed up
cattle that were shipped In for beeves , and
though the Influence of the break In beeves
was felt In easier prices for such the
country was a good buyer all the week.
Stock cattle weighing 500 to 600 pounds are
In the best demand and good cattle of
such weights meet with ready taken * at
seemingly very strong prices. As high as
Jl SO was paid for some near the close of the
week , which will give an Idea of the
strength of the market.
HOGS IJeht receipts and a fnlr shipping < le-
mand , combined ultli liberal orders In hands
of lociil buyers , gi\e tellers come little ad
vantage this morning and the result wan a
stronger market. Hhippern started the ball by
bidding 13 SO for good loads , and as local packers
had to ha\o hogs the had to follow suit.
The trade Boon resohed Itrelf Into a 13 SO
market , the great bulk of all the hlgs selling
nt that price. The extreme range was J3 75 ,
paid for pome heavy packing hogs , up to 1310 ,
paid for choice butcher weights. Yesterday the
highest price paid nan 13 65. and almost half
of the hogs here sold nt 53 7533 7714.
The average of all the Bales today was 2c
higher than > esterday.
While a reasonably early clearance was ef
fected , the market was not particularly active , as
salesmen were , many of them , asking stronger
prices than bu > ers were willing to pn > , and
toward the elate the trade was strongly In
clined toward dullness
THi : WEEK Tlie paM week opened with hogs
Felling at the highest point of the > ear. In fact
at the hlBiie t point toue.ied elncc the month
of September , when the average price on some
da > s went slightly abo\e J4 Values , however ,
went off IDc on Tuejwlay. while an additional Co
waa lost nn Wednesday. On Thursday there wan
a slight reaction , amounting to about 2'c , but
the downward movement of values was returned
on rrlday With the close of the week values
are 12V4o lower than the opening , JOc lower than
the close of the previous ucek , but lOo higher
than a month ago The demand for hogs vvus
good all the week , and It was no trouble fop
sellers In unload at current prices on most da > s.
811 ini' There were more sheep and fewer
lambs In the > ards today , and the offerings being
of different kinds and grades were better calcu
lated for the making of a goad market Yes
terday the offerings were all lambs , and the
; uoportlon of sheep wax too small all the week.
Tne demand today seemed to bo quite brisk ,
and the market was reasonably nitlve , so that
the bulk of the stuff on sale changed hands
In good season The prices paid vveie about the
same as prevailed on jesterday's market.
