Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: A settlement of the coaJ strike satis factory to all interests having been ef fected, business breathes freely in the east and distribution of merchandise is increasing slowly again, although the election excitement keeps new buying in many lines down to wants for immediate consumption. In the west there is not the same hesitation aaid there as well aa in the south, the marketing of the crops is responsible for a feeling of much conti nence in the movement of business, if the nation acts conservatively at the polls. Prices of commodities are weaker, and the caution so gratifying in a presidential, year keeps speculation at a. minimum. Cotton further declined, making the loss about Si a bale in two weeks. Planters are rushing work, and picking is expected to progress rapidly enough to save most of the err p from early frost. High prices make it possible to pay good wages to pickers and the movement at receiving points Increases largely. Domestic spin ners are not liberal buyers, but exports are only slightly smaller than a year ago. Foreign buying increased with the recent sharp decline. Wheat has shown more weakness, due in part to the greater activity at Russian ports, and Atlantic exports lor the week were only 2.647,235 bushels, against 3.270. 223 a year ago. Corn also declined, but is 6 cents above last year, which may ac count for the loss in exports, in three weeks, 7,654,7C5 bushels, against 10,924, ",05 in 1S99. Pew important fluctuations occurred in iron and steel, but there were small ad vances in bessemer pig at Pittsburg and biilets at Philadelphia. Moderate gains are reported in the volume of transac tions, although the tendency is to delay large contracts a few weeks. Implement makers take iron freely, however, and or ders for pipe are urgent, wUh severe weather coming on. Structural sharej are taken for foreign points as far dis tant as Kgynt, and domestic bridge bu ld ers buy freely. More mills have gone into blast and the general tone is improving. Production of coke has increased, but prices are easy and many ovens still idle. Tin declined again, making the fall one and three-quarters cents in two weeks and six cents from the high point in July. Leather and hides are lirm. and selling freely, because of steady improvement in demand for boots and shoes. Jobbers are placing large orders with manufacturers and demand is no longer limited ti fall goods. Spring contracts are increasing at an encouraging rate, although an effort is made to ketp these sales as quiet as pos sible, owing to the effect on the market for raw material. While woolen mil's are not working at full capacitv. mora sea sonable weather has increased buying in this line, and purchases of wool at the three chief eastern markets increased to 4.524,090 pounds, the best total for a long time, although still far below the amount taken through speculative activity a year ago. Prices are steadv and holders show no less confidence. In other textile mar kets cotton goods are less freelv bi 1 for and are selling well below parity' with the raw material. Sellers do not weaken in their idea as to prices. Manv mills which recently shut down or restricted orodue tion are running again on full time, but these are making chiefly heavy goods. Failure for the week were "20j in the T'nited States, against 145 last vear, and 2 in Canada against 20 last year. Violinist a Suicide. Leadville, Colo., Oct. 20. Prof. A'. F. Liefke, one of the most noted violinists in the west, and at one time with Thomas orchestra in Chicago, was found dead in his room here. He had been drinking heavily and was in debt. Two days ago he bought some morphine and it is thought he took it with suicidal intention. Professor Liefke has been liv , ing here for a year and a half. TURNS OH HAflfia. Hetty Green's Son Declares War to the Knife. Dallas, Texas, Oct. 20 E. H. R. Green, son of the famous Hetty Green, who. has for four years been chairman of the Re publican state committee, feels keenly the action of National Chairman Hanna in recognizing Cecil A. Lyon as the head of the party in this state, and he sent the following telegram to Senator Hanna: "Your telegram advising1 me that, af ter a most exhaustive investigation and careful consideration, you have decided to recognize the Lyon committee, re minds me of the wise remark which you recently made to me in Chicago, that both you and I were fools to be in poli tics. Tou have been kind enough to help me out of polities, and whenever I can return the favor I will do- so." SCORE OUIi JOCKEYS. Sir George Chetwynd Must Have Lota on Races. New York, Oct. 20. Sir George Chet wynd, one of the most prominent of all authorities on turf matters, whose name is especially familiar from his dispute with the Earl of Durham in 1S87, is quo ted at length in a Paris dispatch to the Herald relative to the criticism of American jockeys now rife in England. He said: "It is beyond dispute that in races rid den by American jockeys they cannot or will not keep their line. Hence accusa tions of foul riding, of which so much has been heard lately. This is particu larly serious and is justly receiving the close attention of the Jockey club. "I am inclined to think that it is not wilful at all events, as regards many American jockeys, but rather that they loose their heads entirely and go far to win and chance too much. "Be it wilful foul riding, or a question of losing heads, or of incapacity, the fact remains and it must be summarily stopped. Warnings have been given and these are not regarded, or through inca pacity, cannot be followed out, then however good these jockeys otherwise may be, they must go. Any level head ed, unprejudiced sportsman of whatever nationality, will agree with this. "American trainers are certainly clev er, but "Wishard is no less than a won der. There is no doubt about this and it is acknowledged by every one, Newmar ket rivals, or not. He has simply work ed wonders with horses. "I like American horses. They are not so pretty to look at in fact are vulgar looking horses for the most part but they have done well and I like their ac tion, too. They seem to steal along with a low action, quite different from ours." DECLARES FOR BRYAN. Southern Illinois German Paper Makes a Political Switch. Nashville, 111., Oct. 20. The Illinois "Wachinblatt, one of the strongest Ger man papers in the southern part of the state, with a circulation of more than 3,000, and since its foundation ten years ago an ardent supporter of the Republi can cause, has announced editorially that on account of the demand made by its subscribers it will henceforth support the Democratic ticket. PAYNE WASlBLUFFOC. Republican Vice Chairman Made to " Crawfish " on a Proposition. Chicago, Oct. 20. The Record says: When Henry C. Payne, vice chairman of the Republican national committee, announced yesterday that he would bet 2 to 1 that Bryan would not receive as many electoral votes as he did in 1896 he did not anticipate the cupidity of the gamblers who were looking for a good thing. Before night Mr. Payne had bet $3,000 on his proposition at these odds, but bright and early this morning he was compelled to cawfish. J. J. Townsend, a banker and broker in the stock ex change, produced a certified check for $25,000 and sought the vice chairman. Mr. Payne said he did not have this much money to bet. Townsend also offered to take any part of another prop osition offered by Mr. Payne, that Illi nois would give McKinley 100,000 major ity. "Or-any sum from $1,000 to $100,000 will suit me on that proposition," said Broker Townsend. Mr. Payne said this morning: "I have been oversized. I have not got the money to take these bets." ," Job For Weyler. Madrid, Oct. 20. Gen. Weyler, the for mer captain general of Cuba, has been appointed captain general of Madrid. Worse than the Fire. Teacher Yes, children, Chicago is one of the great cities of the world, but it once suffered a terrible calamity. Can any one tell what it was? Pupil Why, it was this here last census. Puck. DON'T KNOW HOW To Select Food to Rebuild On. "To find that a lack of knowledge of how to properly feed one's self caused me to serve ten long years as a miser able dyspeptic, is rather humiliating. I was a sufferer for that length of time and had become a shadow of my natural self. I was taking medicine all the time and dieting the best I knew how. '"One day I heard of Grape-Nuts food, in which the starch was' predigested by natural processes and that the food re built the brain and nerve centers. I knew that if my nervous system could be made strong and perfect, I could di gest food all right, so I started in on Grape-Nuts, with very little confidence, for I had been disheartened for a long time. "To my surprise and delight, I found I was improving after living on Grape Nuts a little while, and in three months I had gained 12 pounds and was feeling like a new person. For the pats two years I have not had the slightest symptcm of indigestion, and am now perfectly well. "I made a discovery that will be of importance to many mothers. When my infant was two months eld, I began to give it softened Grape-Nuts. Baby was Ueing fed on .the bottle and not doing well, but after starting on Grape-Tuts food and the water poured over it, the child began to improve rapidly, is now a year old and very fat and healthy and has never been sick. Is unusually bright has been saying words ever since it was six months old. I know from ex perience that there is something in Grape-Nuts that brightens up any one, infant or adult, both physically and mentally." BILL WICK, FROM NEW YORK. Written for the State Journal. D yer see that smoke up yonder, o'er th' top o" th' trees, my friend? That's th' Three-X ranch o' Turner's, th' largest on Mulberry Beud. Used t' be known fer its punchers, most reckless o' all th' rangers. Prided themselves on their darin', fer fear an' they were like strangers.

So, when he landed one evenln', frum th stage at Mulberry Fork, Bill was th' name he was known by, Bill Wick, th' man frum. New York.

An' .scampered away in a hurry with never a thought o' fight. i An' Bill, he jist pulled th' trigger, but thar wasn't no smoke or report; He slung th' box back on his shoulder as if he were used to th' sport. -. They beat him a throwin' th' lasso an' cuttln' out steers frum th' herd, But he'd play 'em poker till sun up, said 'twas th' game he preferred. They could beat him a swearin' an shoot in', an' ridin' a pitchin' broncho. A bicycle had 'em aJl bested but he'd ride it, I'll 'ave yer to know. An' rustle their very best pony In racin' a straightaway track. An' when it cume to a foot race all they ever would see was his back. In th' fall we shipped to th' market a train load o' special fed steers, An' Bill went along with th' punchers who cared fer th' sUck on th' keers. When we arruv in Chicago, Bill said that his ol' college team Would play a match on a gridiron, well, byes, I'll tell yer I'm green Per I never saw such a mix-up an' I'll take my chanst in a fight, Or all alone in a blizzard way out o' th' Foot ball wuz what he called it, but it looked ter me like a light.

An' then they asked Bill to jine 'em so they could keep up with th' fight. They give him a suit that was padded, an harnessed his shins an' his face. An' then he went into th millln' an' set .

Gen.- Wood Will Return to Havana Almost Immediately. New York, Oct. " 20. Major General Leonard Wood, governor of Cuba, arriv ed today from Havana. He will proceed immediately to Washington and return to Havana by way of Tampa, Fla. General Wood said: "I came up from Havana, at the re quest of the department and to make preparations to take my family down to Cuba, as I shall be unable to come up again during the winter. I shall return to Havana before the end of October, in order to be on hand for the constitution al convention, which meets November 5 next. "Affairs are quiet in Cuba and the people are busy preparing for the con vention. The death rate in Havana, in cluding yellow fever is smaller than for many years. The recent increase in yel low fever cases is attributed to the large immigration of Spaniards. The immigrates are not immunes and are susceptible to the disease, not only on this account, but from the fact that they have no conception of safiitation.when ex posed to the effects of the disease. How ever, we are making arrangements to establish a quarantine system of detain ing them on hulks until they can be for warded through to their destinations in the country districts. Of course many will stay in Havana, finding employ ment in the warehouses and factories and we must expect to find cases of yel low fever among them." FITZHUGH LEE'S SON. Returns From Philippine Service an Invalid. San Francisco, Oct. 20. Among the in valid soldiers who arrived on the trans port Sherman is First Lieutenant G. W. Lee, of the 39th infantry, son of Brig. Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, now at Havana. He is suffering from disease contracted in the jungles- of southern Luzon. Lieut. Lee says the Filipinos usually fire from ambush,, aiming at the Ameri can officers. He saw Capt. W. L. Mur phy of his regiment, shot down by na tives concealed in a hut. Five men each of whom lost a leg in the Orient came home together on the Sherman. They are: Arthur Kosloske.

HORRORS OF CIVIL WAR Exist In Colombia In All Their Hideousness. (Correspondence of Associated Press.) Panama, Colombia, Oct, 8. Little is known in any part of Colombia regard ing the conditions existing in the other sections of the country. Such points as are connected by telegraph or cable are held by the government and at such places the bulk of news conveys grand iloquent narratives of victories achieved over the liberals. The fact remains, however, that the civil war goes merrily on. The country is being drained of all its resources and the most pitiful pov erty prevails in all directions. The in-, terior of this naturally fertile and rich land is devastated. Colombia will at the end of the war be a country of paupers. The city of Cucuta, the erstwhile liberal stronghold near the Venezuelan frontier was recently captured by the government forces after a siege of 20 days. Accounts of the acts of brutality and the horrifying scenes that met the eyes at the surrender of Cucuta have appeared in the newspapers of Mara caibo, Venzuela. This place, it ap pears, was nearly razed to the ground. Bodies lay in the debris in the streets in a state of putrifaction. A drunken soldiery was let loose among the nearly starved inhabitants and every sort of bestiality was committed. Just now the unfortunate city is again besieged, but this time by the liberals, two thousand strong, and the government is unable to raise the siege. The latest reports from the interior of this country purport that the liberals, who only a short time ago appeared to be completely exhausted and who suf fered a tremendous moral set-back with the failure of their attempt to take pos session of the Isthums of Panama, have undergone a vigorous reaction, induced mainly by the confusion which followed Vice President Marroquin's coup d'etat, tl is admitted even by the government FAT BABY Fat is the cushion that na ture fills out and surrounds the little ones with, to protect their tender parts the same with kittens and puppies fat is not tender.

SCOTT Si BQWNE, 40J Ftwlitreet, New Yorfc. " ; - Many low-priced imitation baking1 powders are upon the mar ket. These are made with alum, and care should be taken to avoid them, as alum is a poison, never to be taken in the food. ROYAL BAKINGI POWDER CO., 100 WILLIAM ST., NEW officials that the liberal forces are In possession of the department of Volivan and that the cities of Cartagena and Banranquilla, which are on the banks of the Magdalena river, near its mouth, and consequently constitute practically the only means of access from the At lantic to the interior, and Bogota, the capital, are surrounded by the liberal "army." On the Pacific seaboard the liberals hold the port of Turaace, while the government has succeeded in keep ing Buena Ventura, which is the termi nus of the government telegraph wires from the capital, and is also connected with the outside world by cable. Throughout the whole extent of this republic a chronic guerilla warfare is conducted. This civil contest is one of the most sanguinary that has ever raged in these countries. POLITICAL BREVITIES.

London, Oct. 20. A quarterly return has been Issued by Lloyds showing that the United States at the end of the lat quarter had, next to Great Britain, the largest tonnage In shipping under con struction. This return is attracting much attention, and the Statist publishes a long article in the course of which it points out that .the etcual and prospec tive developments ofvehip building im America is even much greater than might be inferred from Lloyds report. The Statist considers that the imjetijs to ship building given by cheap ma terials and the large demand for tonnage will receive further stimulus from thj marketing of American ciml abroad, which, the paper says, i one of the mft remarkable economic evolutions of our time. The Statist expects that Amei'icfins will shortly solve the problem of evolvlnir a type of trans-Atlantic colliers ah.e like tank steamers to deliver corgo In Kuropean ports without expecting re turn cargoes. It thinks that thi great coal export trade will prove a powerful stimulus to the shipping subsidies bill and lays stress upon the Increase of ship building in New England as an important new departure in ocean com petition, which may be expected to ex pand rapidly.
