WHY GOLD GOES. England Has Been Selling American Securities as Well as Her Own. New York, Aus. 11. R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: Progress has been made toward a more stable position of business, with a few more heavy contracts to hold the ground already stained; but for a prop er interpretation of the week's results one must look beyond Wall street oper ations where, more than any other quarter the vacation season is leaving its impress of inactivity. Speculation is cautious, but investment holdings are beina- increased rather than dimin ished and operators cannot see that their hesitation on the ground of poli tics is re-echoed any more In srertral business circles than two months a&o. Small chanpe appears in railway stocks, ten industrials are Jl higher end trac tion issues a shade lower. Working forces are small-r and will soon he fur ther reduced, probably fur three weeks, by the closing down of cotton mills in New RnprAnd which has been delayed longer than expected, but our strength is evidenced ti the world by the over subscription here of the new British loans of lO.OuO.CK-O pounds sterling on abi'Ut a Si per cent basis of which over half is allotted to American applicants.

Our book of priceless .wliia nil mntna. i ' 1 sent free to any address by p ft"; Eradfield Regulator Atlanta, Ga. Co., m and some bonds, and American par chases of the new foreign loan, explain why gold roes out in the. face of for eign commerce returns which show for New York alone, for the week, an ex cess of exports over imports of more than $5,000,000. Exports for the week of $12,763,719 were more than double those of the same period bf 1S!9. and for the year the sain is over $sfl.00.000, while imports gain only $20,000,000. The money market is untroubled by the financing of the foreign loan, though the volume of new commercial loans is well sustained. Cotton fell so sharply that some re covery occurred in an oversold specu lative marke., and spot sold at 10c when the official report appeared, notwith standing many indications of further reduction in consumption. Wheat ad vanced about a cent, helped by poor foreign crop reports. The domestic out look is fairly cheerful, and farmershave marketed freely. Receipts at interior cities aygretratins .287.581 bushels, against 3.)18.216 last year and 2.446,417 bushels in 1SS8. Exports from Atlantic ports were only 1.720,963 bushels of wheat.- flour included, against 2,503.344 bushels last year, although purchases on foreign account were large and promise an increase movement here after. Corn gains nearly 2 cents with the aid of drv weather reports, and is 8c above the pric at this time last year. Both receipts and exports for the week fell more than a million bushels below the same week in 1899. Improvement is slow In boots and shoes, with or.ly a small percentage of eastern shops at work. The textile markets have been free from such fea tures as marked recent divisions of prices, but business is of-fair volume. Loss of the Chinese market has put coarse brown cottons in a. bad position, other grades being less seriously af fected. In woolen goods reorders are not up to expectations, and some serges sell lower. Manufacturers show more interest in the wool market, taking fair quantities and seeking fewer conces sions. The tone is firmer, though prices are unchanged. Failures for the week were 117 in the fnited States, against 136 last year, and 23 in Canada, against 29 last year. WEBBER WILL NOT MOVE. Has Shoe Manufacturing Plant Not to Be Transferred to Topeka. Major Tom Anderson, secretary of the Commercial club, has a letter from W. S. Webber, the proprietor of the Richard- j son Shie company of Menominee, Mich., saying that that company has made no plans for moving their plant from I Menominee to Topeka, Mr. Webber said that he had received a clipping from one of the Topeka pa pers announcing their Intention of mak ing this move and also a number or let ters from draymen soliciting business, hut outside of this knew nothing about the rumor. He feays: "We have been looking around for a location for a west ern manufactory because a great deal of our trade lies in Kansas,Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri and other western states. The idea of moving our plant from Me- r.ominee is absurd because there is al great loss incurred in moving an old plant. I will go to Sioux City shortly to look over the ground there and see if I may rind a suitable place for the erec tion of a new plant. On the same trip I will make Topeka and look over the ground there also." Mr. Webber does not ask very much in the way of a bonus, but is looking for a good and centrally located place to sup ply the trade from. Topeka tills the requirements and the Commercial club has already taken steps to secure the manufactory for To peka.

Pitts left last evening for Buenos Ayres. Argentine Republic. South America, in the interest of a harvester company, of "which he is a traveling expert. He is one of four ex perts in the employ of the company who will be sent abroad. His headquarters will be at Buenos Ayres. He will be ab sent until next March. He sails from New York the 20th inst. The distance from New York to Buenos Ayres is 8.000 miles, the trip from New York requiring 28 days. Is the joy of the household, for with out it no happiness can be complete. The ordeal through which the expec tant mother must pass, however, is so full of dansrer and suffering that il il 01 feEaa The loaded cigar Joker has not stop ped. Not long ago he brought about strained relations between a proposed father-in-law and his would-be son-in law. The joker met a young man with whom he was ulightly acquainted and while talking- handed him a cigar. The young man put it in his pocket. The joker was disappointed because the young man did not light it. He wanted to see the explosion. He saw the young man the next day. After talking a while the joker offered the young man another cigar. "No. thank you." said the young man. ''Have you quit tmoking?" asked the joKer. "I never did smoke." was the reply. "Didn't you smoke that cigar I gave you last night?" "No." "Well, better give it back to me." said the Joker who wanted to keep track of tne loauea weed. "Oh, 1 gave it away," said the young man. "Whom did you give It to?" "I was calling on a young lady last night and I gave it to her father." "When you see him ask him how he liked it," said the joker. "That was a particularly hne brand of Mexicanoa. ' That night the young man called on his sweetheart and saw her father and asked him how he liked the cigar. He hasn't been there since. The next day he met the joker and asked him several questions about the cigar. The joker seemed innocent and asked what was the trouble but the young man did not state. It has since been found out that the young lady's father played football on the front porch with the young man when, he asked how he liked the cigar. There Is a little girl in the west part of town who was kept in bounds by her mother with words instead of harsher means. The little girl was told when she did anything wrong that God was watching her and that even if none of the family saw her that "He would." It was ex plained to her that God was always with her. For several months her mother ruled her with the suggestion that God was always watching her. As it came nearer Christmas the little girl longed for certain toys. She wanted Santa Claus to bring her a basket full of toys. Her mother changed her tactics and told the child if she did this and that Santa Claus would not come to see her. When ever the little one needed chiding she was told about Santa Claus. One day the little girl was out walking. Her pet dog followed her and she tried to make him go back. He would not. Suddenly she turned around, stamped her foot and said. "Fido, you must go back. It's enough to have God and Santa Claus tagging after me without you." The old family cat still lives with a certain Topeka family and it happened this way and not because the cat has nine lives. The old tabby seemed to be growing childish or kittenish and the family de cided it must die. Sentence was pass ed and the cat was taken to the cellar, placed under a box and a towel saturat ed with chloroform from a bottle was placed under the box and a dozen bricks piled on the box. The members of the family could not stand by and see or hear the cat expire, so they went up stairs. That was in the morning. In the afternoon the family held a council of war and decided that the cat was dead and went down to make sure. "You lift the box, said one when the cellar was reached. "No, you lift it." "Wonder if she is dead?" "Of course. She has been there all day with the chloroform." "Well. I'll lift the box," said the third member of the party. She lifted the box and the first thing that appeared was a cat's paw. It moved. "She's not dead," they screamed and rushed up stairs. Finally they mustered up courage enough to go down and push the box over with a broom handle. To be sure the cat was not dead. It was very much alive and very hungry. Then it w-as discovered that Florida water had been used instead of chloro form. .... Half a dozen people in Topeka ate looking for "Mose Ashby" and they have blood in their eye, but they will rot find him. Not long ago a man stepped up to a certain dentist and said: "Have you heard what Mose Ashby said about you . "No. Who ia Mosa Ashby?" . said the dentist. "Why, don't you know Ashby. He's tne weaumest cattleman in western Kansas. He said he was up to your office a few days ago to have a tooth puuea ana that vou did tne jod iixe a country blacksmith. He can't say enough about you." The dentist went off mad as a hor net at Mose Ashby and swearing that if he ever met him Ashby'scareer would De enaed. One night a call came for a hack to meet mose Ashby at the Rock Island depot, but the hackman did not find Ashby. A waiter in a restaurant was told that Ashby said he was the worst he ever saw; that he had spilled soup on Asnoy s coat and that if he (Asnoyj ever caught him there would be trouble. A young man was talking of opening a drug store. It came to him that Mo3e Ashby said he "was acquainted with that fellow In Oklahoma and that he was a moonshiner down there." The young druggist will annihilate Mose Ashby If he ever finds him. But there is no such person as Mose Ashby. It is a myth, but the dentist, the hackman, the waiter and the druggist have that to discover. REBUTTAL TESTIMONY. In the Powers Case Reveals Many Conflicting Stories. Georgetown, Ky, Aug. 11. When court convened today it was with the prospect that the rebuttal evidence lor the prosecution In the Powers case would be concluded some time during the day. A persistent rumor that Yout sey might take the stand In rebuttal was denied by people sufficiently close to him to make the denial semi-official. W. F. Grayot, assistant state auditor, produced the books, of the state audi tor In response to a subpoena duces tecum to show what amount of the $100,000 reward appropriated by the leg islature had been expended In the search for and prosecution of those ac cused of the crime. The record showed taht In all $5,000 had been drawn. Mr. Grayot also produced the record showing that W. H. Culton was paid his full salary as a clerk in the audi tor's office for December and part of the month of January. This was done to contradict ex-Auditor Stone, who charged Culton with stealing $1,000 and who stated that he dismissed Culton and caused Auditor Sweeney to refuse to give him a clerkship. D. P. Mayhew of Knox county, said he saw Wharton Golden in the barber shop at Barbourville just before his confession. Golden did not display a roll of money and said nothing about going to get part of the reward. A. L. Reed, an attorney of Laurel county, corroborated the statements of the wit nesses who testified yesterday in re gard to the statement of James Sparks, county attorney of Laurel county, on January 20 to the effect that Goebel was to be killed that day and the Gov ernor Taylor would pardon the assas sin. Lieutenant Julian Kersey of the Frankfort military company, testified in regard to the movements of the mi litia. P'rank Kavanaugh, assistant state li brarian, testified he saw Caleb Powers in conversation with Charles Finley and Wharton Golden on the afternoon of January 25, the time Powers clams to have been sick at the residence of Captain Davis, FIGHT RECEIPTS $50,000. Corbett and Fitzsimmons Speak The First Time in Years. New York, Aug. 11. The gate receipts at the big fight last night were fullv $50. 000. Of this Flti will get about 15,6o0 and Ruhlin $S,500. The other half g to the fight promoters. For the first time since their memorable battle at Carson City, Corbett and Bob Fitzsimmons were brought together last night. After Fitzsimmons recovered suf ficiently he strolled across the ring to Ruhlin's corner to shake hands with his victim. Corbett was standing close by, but never said a word. In turning away from Ruhlin, Fitzsim mons spied his old rival and, extending his hand, said: "Well, Jim, will you shake?" "Why. certainlv," said the ex-champion, as he grasped Ruby Robert warmly by the hand. "I made a good fight, didn't I, Jim?" in quired Fitzsimmons. "Yes," said Corbett, "you made. a great battle, and I wish y6u luck." Both fighters parted smiling, Few peo ple close to the ring noticed the incident on account bf the' great excitement. It was the first word that passed between the pair in years. Although they have come together frequently on the street, neither has noticed the other. DOGS POISONED. Several Valuable Animals on Lincoln Street Lose Their laves. Peonle Hvlnir tn the vteinltv of Fifth and Lincoln streets have recently lost several valuable dogs by poison left tn the neigh borhood by some miscreant who has taken tnis cowardly and mnuman metnoa oi destroying the animals.

There was considerable betting In To peka on last night's prize fight. Among the cash winners,George Burg hardt was as fortunate as any one and he won about $150. Eugene Hagan made a bet of $60 to $10 on Fitzsimmons. Ordinarily the odds were 10 to 8. But his man was good and "Gene was prouder of the bet than he would have been had it been even mon ey. A colored barber named Walker on Ninth street, placed two $50 and one $100 bets and won. A clerk in a clothing store on a salary of $50 per month made a bet of $175 on Ruhlin last night and wrote out a check for the amount. After losing he went around to the bank this morning and stopped payment on the check. Another very foolish young society man bet a half dozen pairs of gloves against an ice cream soda with a young lady and lost. This morning he drew a check on the bank for $12 to pay for the gloves to cancel his debt. , Clarence Scott was also fortunate in placing his money on the winner, and as a result has $100 to his credit more than he had before the fight. Perhaps the most novel bet made last night was between Wate Watts and John Slim. A3 a result of the bet Watts had to push John Slim in a wheelbar row from Tenth and Kansas avenues to First street. John Slim had a large pla card fastened to the front of the wheel barrow announcing "I bet on Fitssim mons." The debt was cancelled this morning at about 10 o'clock. As they passed along the street they caused a great deal of comment. COL ROSSINGTON'S FIRE Telephone Burned Up Because of Crossed Wire.

The telephone wire became crossed with a heavily charged wire and the telephone burned out.

People are talking a gooil deal today about the mystery of the Rue de Bour gogne. Ever since the month of October strange cries, as those of a little girl who was being- 111 treated, have been heard in a blrck of buildings. At that date the poMee were warned by an anonymous letter, and they started an inquiry, which led to no result. The matter, however, has strain been taken up by the neighbors, who declare that they are not a prey to any illusions, but that the child seems to be weaker now. as the appeals for mercy are fainter. Even policemen who have spent the ight in one of the houses ac knowledge that they, too, have heard the screams. Atchison Coun ty Fusion Ticket. Atchison, Kan., Aus. 11.
