Business In the East Relieved by
Settlement of Strike.
New York. Oct. 20. R. G. 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
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
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.

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
"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

SCORE OUIi JOCKEYS.
Sir George Chetwynd Must Have Lota
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.
"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

he did not anticipate the cupidity of

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

$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

An' .scampered away in a hurry with
never a thought o' fight.
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'

But he'd play 'em poker till sun up, said

Gen.- Wood Will Return to Havana
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
"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."

HORRORS OF CIVIL WAR

Panama, Colombia, Oct, 8. Little is

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

its resources and the most pitiful pov

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
