In the stock mnrket, after 11 o'clock, the

DETAILS OF THE FLUnRV.
New York, Nov. 10. The stock market
today continued the rapid and heavy de
cline of the latter part of last week, and
for a time this moruing it looked more
like a panic than at any previous time
since the downward movement began. As
remarked by a prominent western manip
ulator of stocks and other speculative
commodities, it was only a rich man's
panic, and thus far the slump in prices
which has reached 15 per cent in some
cases has been accompanied by a com
plete freedom from failures upon the
street emphasizing the fact that not for a
long time have stocks been held to any ex
tent upon the street in brokers' offices on
Today, however, the excitement, which
was of the suppressed order, and almost
"( entirely free from the usually noise and
wild gyrations which have marked the
transaction of business on the stock ex
change at times, was sufficient to cause
tho death of one of the leading members of
he exchange upon the floor at about noon,
uch an event would, in usual times, have
been sufficient to cause the closing of tho
exchange at once; but the magnitude of
the interests which would have been en
dangered by such a course forbade it, and
after a half hour's interruption of business,
trading was resumed upon the floor. The

Tie Evening Post,in its financial article,
" 1 he panic in the stock market was con
tinued this morning in about the same
temper as on Friday and Saturday. Tho
panic received fresh impetus from London
this morning in the first prices made in
that market, before the opening of this.
All stocks opened there 1 cent lower
than they closed here on Saturday tho
latter drop being on Union Pacific. Money
was higher in London at noon, and all the
great banks of Europe npjcar to bo grab
bing for tho diminished supply of gold,
some of which has gono to Spain and
shouted out their bids for stocks and an
nouncement of sales. A messenger was
hurriedly sent for Dr. Hewitt, who is a
member of the stock exchange. He came
seven minutes after Struthers had fallen.
He saw the case was hopeless, and in three
minutes he said Struthers was dead.
As soon as it became known, President
Dickeraian stopped the noise hv mounting
the rostrum and announcing the death.
He said business would be suspended for
half an hour on account of the death;
whereat, scores of brokers rushed off to
make up their accounts. Gray-coated at
tendants of the exchange brought a
stretcher and the body was removed. Cor
oner Levy came and examined half a
dozen witnesses. Dr. Hewitt said he be
lieved death was caused by apoplexy.
Sharp to the minute or 12:30 o'clock
exactly one-half hour after the recess had
been announced the president again
mounted the rostrum and made the official
announcement of the death of James
Struthers, late member of the New York
Stock Exchange. Then as he stepped
down, there was a rush and a shout, and
business had once more been resumed on
Mr. Struthers was 58 years old, and was
a member of the firm of James Struthers

wife and a young daughter. He lived at

WINDOM AND THE PANIC
Washington, Nov. 10 Secretary Win
don was kept fully advised of the con
dition of tho money market today, but
uiu noc ieei cauea on to taKo any action m
the matter, beyond tho purchase of all the
silver bullion that was offered the depart
ment. The director of the mint said this
was doneifor the relief ot tho market. The
available treasury cash balance will be
used principally in the redemption of the
4i per cent, loans. The secretary's offer
of October 9. to redeem this class of bonds
on presentation, at par, with interest to
maturity, September 1, 1891, is still open.
The bouds are coming in very slowly, and
the total redemptions to date are less than
five million dollais.

Second senatorial district, and it now ap

ported. Owing to tho fact that the two
parties have been thought to be a tie in the
legislature, this discovery is of considera

fies the election of Kinnev, the Democrats
will have 101 votes in the assembly and
the Republicans but 100, thus making the

rates of yield per acre, make the following
averages: Corn. 19.9 bushels; potatoes,
57.5 bushels; buckwheat, 14.5 bushels; hay,
120 tons; tobacco 57K pounds.
The corn crop makes the smallest yield
reported, exceedincr onlv thnr. nf isst
which was 18.G bushels. That of 1SS7 was
20.1. It is S3 per cent of the average of
t he last ten years, a period which includes
four unusually poor years, and onlv 73
per cent of last year's crop. The indica
cations of the recent returns have been so
uniform that the estimate for permanent
record will not be likely to change this
figure unless by a slight fraction. The de-
due to the
rates are in isew n,ngianu as usual. JNew

20.7. Michigan 26.7, Indiana 24.3, Illinois

the corn surplus states.
The average rate of yield of potatoes is
57.5 bushels. Tiio condition of the crop in
October was lower than in any reported
previons crop, except in 18S7, being 61
against 61.5, when the rate of yield was
56.9 per acre. It imports scarcity and war

THE IRISH RECEPTION.
New York, Nov. 10. Rarely has the
Metropolitan opera house held such an
audience as it did tonight when the Irish
societies of the city of New York gave a
public reception to the Irish representa
tives, Messrs. O'Connor, O'Brien, Dillon,
Sullivan, Harrington and Gill. There
were about 4,000 people in the house, 3,200
being seated, and the remaining 800 on the
platform and standing. At 6 o'clock peo
ple began to demand admission,
and when the doors were thrown
open at 7, the top galleries were
immediately packed. There were few deco
rations in the house. An Irish flag was
hung on either side of the first balcony.
and the background of the stage was
formed by two American flags, with a
golden harp joined on a square of green in
the center. The Sixth Regiment band was
early in attendance and held the attention
of the audience previous to the opening of
the meeting, by playing such airs as the
"Wearing of the Green," "The Star
Spangled Banner," "Marching Through
Georgia," etc. The audience filled the
interval by cheering alternately for Par
nell and the members of the Irish party,
and hissing Balfour.
A few minutes before 8 o'clock Messers
O'Brien and Dillon walked on the stage.
This was a sicnal for loud and enthusiastic
plaudits, the neartiest of which came from
the gallery, where the enthusiasm was of
the wildest kind. The Irish party were
escorted on the platform by Governor Hill,
Mayor Grant, Recorder Smythe, Dr. M. B.
Wallace, Amos J. Cummings and Joseph
The Irish patriots took seats on the right
of the stage, after shaking bands with
many of those on the platform. Governor
Hill took a chair in the center of the stage.
When the loud outburst of cheers hud
ceased, Mr. O'Donoghue called the meet
ing formally to order. After a few appro
Enate.remarks, he introduced Mr. John
illon, who spoko of the Irish cause.
When Mr. Dillon concluded the applauso
was deafening, the band again played
"The Wearing of the Green," and Gov
ernor Hill next introduced Mr. O'Brien,
who met with a reception as cordial as any
that had been accorded during the evening.
He said that he was gratified and as
tonished at the welcome that had been
given him and his compatriots. "We
como here not for a relief fund, but for a

Tho legality of this provision was at
