GOOD WOllD FOll UILL. He Hopes for His Success at the Coming Election. Bp.ooki.tx, N. T., Oct. C The fol lowing letter from Judge Gaynor, de clining the nomination for the ofiice of judge of the court of appeals, was made public last evening-. "Hon. J. W. Hinckley. "Brooklyn, N. Y., Oct 5. Dear Sir: The reasons which I publicly assigned for not wishing to become the nom inee for governor, precludes me from accepting another place on the ticket, and I am therefore constrained to decline the nomination for judge of the court of appeals as grateful as I feel far it, and as much as 1 fchould like to hold a place of so mucli usefulness. This would Bufilce; but I feel impelled to say more. The voice of the plain every day people is to-da-. for cause, an actual living voice, yea, it is, or it never was iu the history of the world, and, in a contest in wii.ch it should be summed up, I could not be a candi date for otlice and silent, as usage and et iquette would 'require me to do in my present case. The center of thought has passed from the few to the many, and a great peaceful political struggle is now impending in this country which is to decide whether the center of power snail be aod remain there also. It has more than once seemed to me that I should have some part in this great contest wiie i it came, but if that is not to be, I still hope I may be able to feel that I have dene, not much, it is true, but yet something to put my uay anil generation forward at leat a little and to better the con dition of this community in which my lot has been cast. I mirht stop heYe, but if I did it would seem to me I had left something appropriate un said in view of recent events. I am not without feeling, and can not re frain from acknowledging a vibration of pain that organizations avowedly working unseltiahiy for high politi cal methods and for better govern ment should a SUrrnatively refuse to indorse my nomination in advance of my acceptance or refusal. "On tiie other hand, tho wholly spontaneous manifestation of tho general Democracy of ti.e state to ward me, which I never expected to see, and whicii I can only interpret as a full approval of my past public con duct has made upon me an impression too profound to ever be elfaced. Cir cumstances do not permit re to ac cept the nomination they have tendered to me, bul my hand and my heart go out to them all the same. It is now nearly live years ago that I openly objected as an individual citizen to politi cal met.ioJs which 1 deemed low, base and unmanly, and to oiiicial acts which I deemed heartless crimes, in volving as they did spoliation of the people's hard-earned money for the enrichment of a few who had fol lowed p jlitics as a tra le and made public officials their mere tools. I felt I had a right to speak, for in the face of cross wrongs to the people among whom I lived. I had sat silent for fifteen years, and silenced often the right to speak: but, f urtnermore, from an impulse which I cannot de fine, or a reason which is too inscruti ble to assign, I foun 1 myself un able to sit silent longer. The history of the four years of ef fort which ensued, by appeal to courts and public opinion I can not even now summarize; but. in this hour in which my name is being tossed back and forth ty contending political factions and in whicii I have broken asunder the bonds of my per plexity and seen my way clear, I bfg to say, in justice to myself, and I trust with duij mildness and without any egotism, that throughout it all I was never helpe i in money or otherwise by any politic an or po litical organization or faction what ever, and that if in the end 1 finally prevailed, it was solely because the people, honest or nnsel63h, under stood me, and recognized that at all events I was tryinar to do right. "Owing nothing, therefore, to poli ticians or political organizations, and remembering that whatever little I have done to lift the government up was done as a private citizen.. I do not value any olHee so hignly as to wish to achieve it against the oppo sition of those whom I had sup posed would be my friends. If I thought the withdrawal of my name would injure Senator LiiTs canvass I would try to see some way to allow it to remain, for his recent development in the national senate places him with the foremost pub ic men of his day. Between him and his opponent, he should, and I trust will, prevail. "Though this letter takes me away from a promotion in the line of my taste, I have written it without re gret, for it keeps me in line with my past. I write it to tbe hurt of no man, but in justice to all men, to truth and myself. 'To tfiine own sl? be trie.

The reports of correspondents on wheat feeding show that farmers to a large extent have tested the value of wheat (when ground) as food for all classes of stock and are using it free ly and deriving benefits from its use that are surprising Many of tha correspondents who have made scien tific tests state that one bushel of wheat when ground and properly fed is equal to one and one-half bushels of corn, and as this is a year when it will have to be used to a large extent, it is apt to revolutionize the stock feeding business. Another prominent feature of th report is the large number of coun ties reporting disease among hogs. In the eleven states disease is re ported in 111 counties. There have been thousands of pigs from 20 to 140 pounds weight shipped from Nebraska and South Dakota into Iowa, Illinois and other states, and it is principally among these hogs that the disease started and spread to native hogs. FIVE STATE TICKETS. That I tha Number to B Presented Voters of Missouri in Noiembrr. Jeffeesos Cxtv, Mo., Oct. 6. The socialist labor party yesterday filed w ith the secretary of state their state ticket, which consists of the follow ing nominees, all from St. Louis: Judge of supreme court, Albert E. Sanderson; superintendent of publio schools, James A. Rendell; railroad and warehouse commissioner, L. Seiler. The Democrats and Populists have filed their state nominees, but the Republicans and prohibitionists have not done so up to date. There will be five state tickets voted for at the November state elec tion, to-wit: Democratic, Republican, Populist, Prohibition, and Social Labor. It is yet believed that a deal is between the Republicans and Popu lists to withdraw the Populist candi date for judge of the supreme court in favor of the Republican nominee. IIAit ItlSON WOULD ACCEPT. Ueneral Lew Wallace on tie Ex-President's Candidacy. St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 6. General Lew Wallace, who is here on his way to the Pacific coast, said: "My opinion is that General Harrison will not be a candidate for the presidency in the active, pushing sense; in other words he will not fight for the nomination. But a contingency micht arise where in the members of th.e convention, representing the united sentiment of the Republicans of the country, would demand that he accept that nomina tion, and in that event 1 believe he would accept it as a duty to his coun try and his party." General Wallace thinks that David B. Hill will be the Democratic nomi nee. Suicide of a Prominent Farmer. Hauhisonville, Mo., Oct. 6.

Again DEMAND F OK IKON. It Seems Better Than It Was a Month Ago. New York, Oct. t5. Dan's Weekly Review of Trade says: With the chief money crops of the West and South sinking in value it is not strange that purchases of manufactured products are smaller than was expected. Wheat has touched the lowest point ever known for options, and cotton the lowest ever known in any form with the present classification, and the ac cumulation of stocks in both products is discouraging to the purchasers for an advance. Producefs are compelled to sell at prices below the ordinary cost of raising crops and in some Western states there is also a lament able failure of the corn crop. Under the circumstances it would be very strange if the demand for manufac tured products should be quite as large as in other years. Wheat suffers from accumulation of stocks in sight, which are far beyond what is usually exp -cted for the sea son and the exports in September were unusually small. For the first week of October Atlantic exports were 1,097,373 bushels, against 8t;-t,-746 last year; and Western receipts were only 4,615,000 against 0, l,;u, 6-7 last year and these figures give some encouragement, but little influence in view of the unusual visible supply. The price for cash wheat is a small fraction higher for the week. Corn receipts at the West have only been a third as large as they were last year, with exports amounting to nothing, but the price has not further declined after the heavy fall during the previous fortnight. Pork products are weak in tone, though only lard is quotably lower. The condition of the industries is in some respects more satisfactory. Evidently there is a larger demand for iron products than there was a month ago, although the increase in output has been somewhat greater than the increase in the demand, so that prices steadily tend downward. Failures for the past week have 219 in the United States, against 320 last year, and 39 in Canada, against 45 last year. Sank: Clearings. Niw York. Oct. 6.

Lamo reanx, commissioner of the general land office, in his annual report shows there has not been as much activity in public land matters this year as previously, due to the hard times in the West and tt e consequent decrease in immigration.

It is not impossible that tha Populists may hold the balance of power in the joint assembly, and it is claimed that Judge Trumbull sees in such a condition a chance to have himself forced upon the Democrats as a compromise, and Franklin McVeagh dropped as an impossibility.

Today, when the case came up, the col ored Democrat asserted that he was a preacher by profession, aud hence could not be supposed to swear.
