WHEAT The shorts have been tempted to take profits today and, in consequence, a little steadier mar ket resulted, although prices at one time were at the lowest on the crop. There were some reports about takings for ex port and as high as 42 loads reported. The news has been in favor of the bears. Early trades were at last night's closing prices. Northwest receipts were heavy and the winter wheat in good condition according to Price Current. A reduction in the freight rates east was responsible for some buyings and a consequent ad vance of He There appears to be no new developments in situation to cause much advance. CORN Has been very slow and inclined to be heavy, but range has been narrow and there "has been indifferent selling pressure as buying demand. The open re duction in rates by presidents at New York was not much of a help. Country offerings keep very small and the export demand as well as receipts were 4S1 cars, with onlv 2 contract: the estimate for Friday, 200 cars. Clearances. 343.000. Sea board reported 35 loads. Liverpool stock, 1,280.000 bu. ; decrease. 904,000 bit for month. OATS Been quiet but tirm. The eastern rates will help cash oa.ts position more than wheat and corn as so large a share of the oats business is to interior points. Receipts were 160 cars with 100 for tomor row. PROVISIONS-Acted wheak early with continuation of commission house liqui dation. But packers turned buyers and there was sharp recovery. Everything advanced to over Wednesday's close. Hogi firm with only 24.0UO in the west, 56,0;0 against 60.000; packing west 49u.0U0 aganst 415,0uo last year. J. F. HARRIS. Mew York Up-Town Gossip. Furnished by J. C. Goings, Commission Merchant, 112 East Fifth street. Topeka, Kan., receiver and shipper of grain. New York, March 1. The market pre sents a better appearance than it did yes terday morning, and the trend of opinion is that the worst is over for some time. It can not be said, however, that the at mosphere has cleared enough to warrant the indiscriminate buying of stocks. In another week, the directors of Sugar will meet to take action upon the dividend. Wall street is confident that not more than 6 per cent will be declared and some of the radicals predict that the certifi cates will sell at 75 during the coming spring and summer in case this reduction is made. The man who sells Sugar short with the expectation of buying it in at any such price will meet with the disap pointment of his life. Only tinder one condition will the stock sell at that level, namrly, the susjension of dividends. Any security of established reputation that pays 6 per cent is intrinsically worth par, especially when money is loaning at 2 per cent. Sentiment is too bearish on Sugar. It will no doubt sell lower, but it is a purchase on the violent breaks for a turn of 2 or 3 points. There is an excellent demand for Atchison, preferred. The January statement has made a most favorable impression and in none of the other railway stocks Is bull sentiment so pronounced. All the leading commission houses strongly recommend its purchase, and the entire west is picking it up. Chi cago parties have bought it all week and private advices from that citv are to the effect that the stock will sell In the neighborhood of 75 before the next divi dend is declared. Boston people are buy ing Burlington upon the strength of the iniormation they claim to possess in re gard to the forthcoming January state ment. They anticipate a large increase in the earnings and a substantial rise is the stock. It is doubtful, however, if the stock can be advanced very much above present quotations, unless there should develop a vigorous buying movement. At tention was called some time ago to So. Ry., com. This is one of the best invest ments that market offers in way of low priced stocks. The road is in most pros perous condition and it is more' than prob able that the directors will, at their next meeting, add an extra half dollar per share to the preferred and common stock sold be worth at least 20 inside of sixtv days. Should be bought everv timo it selis under present prices. There is no ground for talk of a reduction in West ern Union dividend, but there is no ground for that action is contemplated by the directors of that company, espe cially at a time when everything looks bright for enormous business in next six months at least. The' stock has few friends, however, and efforts will no doubt be made from time to time to de press it. R. N. HUDSON. Market Gossip. Furnished by J. C.

He furnishes the Funds For Use of Clark's Enemies. Washington, March 1. When the sen ate committee of elections resumed its sessions today Representative Campbell who was on the stand was cross-examined by Mr. Faulkner. He told of the organization of the movement for the investigation of Mr. Clark's election. He said the first meeting was held in Butte last March, those present being Mr. Hartman, Dr. Campbell of Livingston, Marcus Daly, H. L. Myers, Speaker Stiff, Mr. Tuohy, Mr. Metts, Mr. Toole and Mr. Finland. A committee was then appointed with Mr. Campbell as chair man to gather facts. "Mr. Daly said at that time that he would furnish any necessary means for the investigation," said the witness, "but that he would expect others also to make contributions." He said there was no limit placed upon the amount to be expended, except that Mr. Daly said "we had millions for defense, but not a cent for tribute." Continuing, llr. Campbell said that no sum had been deposited to his credit and that when he wanted money he went to Mr. Daly for it. except upon one occasion when Miles Finlan had given him a check of his own for $1,000 and one of $500 from Mr. Leggett. Both these checks had, however, been re tained. At this point Mr. Faulkner presented, letters which Mr. Campbell had written to detectives whom he had employed in the case, first drawing from the wit ness the fact that detectives had been engaged in Montana, in Washington and in New York. In Montana they were engaged to work up evidence and in Washington and New. York to keep an eye on witnesses believed to be un faithful. Mr. Campbell identified sev eral letters to detectives from h.jself, but they were not read. "Were your witnesses in Washing ton," he was asked, "instructed to visit dentists, surgeons, doctors, etc., who were connected with senators?" "No. sir, positively no," was the re ply. "If such a course Avas pursued, it was without my knowledge or consent. I never gave any such instructions- and I now have no knowledge of such pro ceedings. If I knew of such a course being pursued I would stop it immedi ately." "Did you instruct the detectives to ingratiate themselves into the good graces of Mr. Clark's friends?" he was asked. "I did," was the reply. "I told them to get employment from them or to get into their good graces in any way they could." The witness was questioned concern ing his connection with "Swede" t Mur phy the witness who has, been so long missing and also with Tom McLaugh lin. Mr. Campbell said that Murphy had sought him out and had agreed to make an affidavit in the case; that he (Campbell) had put the statement in affidavit form, but that he made no suggestion as to what he or McLaugh lin should testify to. He told of Mur phy's disappearance from W'ashington and says that McLaughlin had not been put on the stand because his statement could not be corroborated. He never asked the governor to grant special im munity to Murphy. PATS FOR FEED.

Whereas, Not only within his pleas ant home circle, where our lamented brother was ever a loving and beloved member, will he be greatly missed, but in the hearts and homes of many who have been uplifted and strengthened by his generous and progressive nature; and Whereas, He gave joy and peace to the lowly, encouragement to the fallen, aided the unfortunate, and wisely coun seled the friendless and oppressed; and Whereas, While all who knew him, are saddened to know that his earthly life is ended, a tender and consoling re membrance of his true unselfish friend ship, his genial companionship, and his many virtues, will live forever in their hearts;an influence for great good. Therefore, Resolved, That in the death of Past Grand Master Workman John B. Hib ben, this order has sustained the loss of one of its ablest, and most distinguished members, who by his marked ability and conscientious- fidelity to the duties entrusted to him, has conferred a lasting benefit upon our fraternity; and be it further Resolved, That our sincere sympathy is extended to Mrs. Hibben and her son in their affliction, with the earnest wish that the blessings which the hus band and father sought to secure fos others may in manifold form and power come to and remain with them. Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon our records, on a page specially set apart for that purpose, and that a copy suitably engrossed and certified under the seal of. the grand lodge be forwarded to Mrs. Hibben. . The following resolution was also in troduced and adopted: Whereas, The reception and enter tainment of this grand lodge during its entire session has fully demonstrated that genuine hospitality is one of the distinguishing characteristics of our hrethren of the Ancient Order of Unit ed Workmen in the capital city of the state,. ajd Whereas, The cordial greetings we have received and the receptions and entertainments given with lavish hos pitality by the Workmen of Topeka has rendered our experience such as to be in our future lives a subject for pleas ant remembrance; therefore Resolved, That our sincere thanks are due the members of the eight lodges of this city for the elaborate and contin uous hospitalities enjoyed, and we as sure each of the 2,500 members of these lodges that their constant attention and entertainment has been appreciated. Resolved, That we appreciate the ef forts of those who took part in the .entertainment at the Grand opera house and assure them that it afforded us much pleasure.
