THEIiOCALi STOCK MARKET.
A Gratifying Increaso In tho Volume of
linstnoBS on tho Bxohaneo.
Business was falrl j active on the local Stock
Exchange last week, with an abrogate of
sales far abovo the avcrago for tho la6t five or
six months. Bond rights cxchangablo for
convertible bonds of tho Washington and
Georgetown Railroad to tho extent of $5,000
sold for 130. For 50 shares of Washington
Gas stock 43g was paid and 35 shares were al
lowed to go for 43. For 2,000 Washington
Market Improvement 6lxes 110 wa8 paid.
There were larger sales of bank stocks last
week than usual. For 10 shares of Lincoln
bank 100 was paid; 5 Columbia National
brought 155 and for 5 Bank of Washington
430 was realized. The closing bid on Lincoln
Bank was OS, with no offerings. On Celumbla
bank 150 was bid and 160 asked. For Bank of
Washington 430 was bid with 430 aBkcd.
Privately during tho week 10 shares of Lin
coln Bank brought 102, and for a 6mall lot of
Second National 200 was paid. Tho only
Bales of Metropolitan Railroad stocks last
week on tho Board were 35 shares at 1021.
This Is regarded as a very low price, as tho
prosperity of the road was never greater. At
tho close the lowest offering was at 110 with
but 100 bid. The prlco realized for 15 shares
of Georgetown and Tennallytown railroad was
also very moderate, namely $55- Tho
closing bid was 53 with no stock offering.
There is a steady growth. In tho business of ,
the last-named company and a dividend is not
Improbable in January.
American Graphophone stock continues
dull, with offerings at 6i and G, of hundred
eharo lots. Tho only 6ale last week was of
thirty-seven shares privately at 5k. For sev
eral week6 past there has boon more or less
excitement in Graphophone circles over tho
election of directors, announced to take place
at Harper's Ferry, on Monday, tho 12th in
stant. Frofessor C. S. Tainter, one of the
principal inventors of the Graphophone, who
was formerly a director of the company, has
been announced as a candidate, and thero has
been quite a lively demand for proxies from
those who will not be personally present at
tho election. The train for Harper's Ferry
will leave promptly at 11:30 a. m. to-morrow
(Monday) morning, and the election is ad
vertised to begin at 1 o'clock p. m.
There was good bidding la6t week for
U. S. Electric Lighting stock stimulated
at the close by a revival of the report
that there was great unanimity in the board
of directors concerning tho propriety of com
pensating the stockholders for tho long period
during which they were deprived of dividends,
when all the earnings were allowed to be
used in building up the plant. It is the gen
eral opinion that this act of justice will take
the shape of a 33 per cent, dividend In con
vertible bonds. On Saturday ten shares of
this stock sold for 155. The sales not men
tioned above were as follows: 1000 U. S. 4's
at 116. 2,000 of the same atll6i, 56 shares Bull

IT BECAME A RIOT.
Rough Experience of a Party ot "Sporty"
Gentlemen at a Prize JETlgkt.
Last Sunday a number of "sporty" gentle
men left the city to witness a glove fight be
tween two colored aspirants for pugilistic
honors. It was understood that the "tough"
element was not in it, but the gentlemen who
was beguiled into going now regret the step,
as the crowd that attended turned out to be
about the worse mob that ever left the city.
On arriving at the boat tho gentlemen found
things as predicted. They were the only ones
present, but just as the craft pulled out in tho
stream a very motley gang rushed aboard.
The two contestants were Damaro and George,
and the toughs had it fixed that too former
was to win fairly if pceslble, foully If neces
sary. The fight speedily developed into a
riot, and the gentlemen feel gratified that
they are alive and safe out of the clutches of
the gang. George was the better fighter and
could have won, but cries of "foul" from
Damaro backers, Skldmore, Northridge
brothers, and Bob Connell, made the
utles of the referee anything but peace
ful, and at the end of tho sixth round
he declared the fisht a draw. The scene at
this point was sensational, as pistols were
drawn, blows were exchanged, and the won
der was that murder wasn't committed. On
the return trip of the steamer a second of
George named Smith, said ho could whip
Damaro; and this being heard by "Skinny"
Bill, he seized a bottle of beer and struck
Smith across the face a terrible blow. It
literally laid open Smith's face, and he fell
on the deck like a dead man, while "Skinny"
Bill sovercd an artery in his band, the force of
the blow bursting tho bottle and cutting him.
Ho bled freely, and had it not been that the
boat was near Alexandria, would have bled to
death, but medical aid was procured at that
place and the wounds dreised. Tito respect
able element left the boat at Alexandria, glad
to get away from the gang. Smith Is now in
Freedman's Hospital, while "Skinny" Bill is
walking around with his arm in a sling.
HARRISON TO BLAIR.
The President Sent a Formal Protest to
Ex-Senator Henry W. Blair yesterday re
ceived a note from Erealdent Harrison, in
which the latter says:
Your resignation of the office of Envoy Ex
traordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to
China was tendered some time ago, but action
upon it has been deferrod for reasons well
known to you. In accepting it now I as
sure you it has been a source of great
regret to me that what I bellovo to have been
a misunderstanding, has Iod to an unten
able objection on tho part of China to your ac
ceptance as a representative ot this Govern
ment. I have directed the Secretary of State
to protest to tho Chinese government against
tho sufficiency of the objections presented by
it, and to say that you had terminated tho cor
respondence by a peremptory resignation. Lot
me assure you that I have, after inquiry,
found nothina that in any degreo reflects upon
your character or impairs tho esteem und
friendship in which I havo long held you.
The Price of Wheat.
Chicago, Oct. 10, The price of wheat was
chiefly governed by the tono of foreign ad
vices to-day. Prices wore higher most of the
day as & result of speculative excitement and
decidedly higher prices in Liverpool; but,
toward tho close, prices abroad weakened,
and under tho heavy realizing sales the mar
ket here responded and all of tho coins over
yesterday's highest flgares were lost. At the
close the price was at the lowest figure for
the day and weak at 99 J against 100 at the

REV. DR. OHARIiES A. BRIGGS.
Tho Presbyterian Clergyman Who Is to
lo Tried for Herony.
By tho close voto of sixty-four against sixty
two tho Now York Presbytery has decided to
try Dr. Brlggs, professor of Hebrew in tho
Union Theological Seminary, Now York, on
two charges, set forth with minute specifica
tions by a committco appointed at a previous
meeting of that body. Ho is charged with
teaching doctrines in his Inaugural address
REV. DR. CIIAKLES A. BHIQGS.
to tho seminary mentioned which conflict'
with and are contrary to tho Bible and the
standards of his church, and with being un
sound in his views as to tho character, state,
and sanctlficatlon of believers after death.,
Dr. Brlggs will conduct tho defense personally.
He is regarded as the head of the now school
of Presbyterians, and in learning and ability,
commands the attention of educated peoplo
everywhere. Tho expectation seems to bo
that he will bo found guilty of tho charges
made against him, with tho probable result
that ho will withdraw from membership in
the religious body of which he has been long'
Dr. Brlggs was born in New York City in
1841. After his graduation at tho universi
ties of Virginia and Berlin he entered tho
Union Theological Seminary, New York,
where he was graduated with the class of
1S63. He spent the following few years in a
business pursuit. In 1S70 he was choson
pastor of a church at Roselle, N. J. Since
1875 he has been connected with the Union
Theological Seminary as professor. Dr.
Brlggs' trial will begin on Wednesday, No
ACTOR "VVILLARD PROTESTED.
Ho Dropped His Role to Have a Crying
Infant Taken Oat.
A sceno not down on the bills, which seemed
to amuse somo of tho audience, but annoyed,
most of them, occurred at tho matinee at the
National Theatre yesterday afternoon. Sev
eral times during the earlier acts of "The
Middleman" an Infant, which had been brought
to the theatre by an Inconsiderate mother,
cried out so as to be heard all over the house.
In the last act in one of the most interesting
scenes of the play, when Mr. Willard as Gyrus
Blcnkarn, alone on the 6tage, apostrophizes
his supposed dead daughter for light as to
how he .shall treat his enemies, the baby broke
out again worse than ever. Instantly tho
spirit of tho scene was lost and a
portion of tho audience began to titter. This
was too much for Mr. Willard. He shook
himself out ot the part of JSlenkarn, and ad
vancing to the foot-lights declared that it
would be impossible for him to go on unless
the Infant was removed from the house. Ho
had borne the annoyance as long as ho could,
in the hope that the infant would be taken
out, but he could endure it no longer. Either
the child must go or he would decline to pro
ceed with the play. Then Mr. Willard re
tired and the curtain was rung down. At this
a woman in the front row of tho gallery got
up with a baby in long clothes in her arms
and left tho theatre. The curtain went up
again and the play proceeded. At tho close of
tho performance Mr. Willard came out and
expressed his regret at having had to take tho
course he did, but declared his patience had
been tried beyond endurance.

PROPOSED FLOWER MARKET.
Florist frooman Jtfakcrt ft Strong Protest
Against tho Project.
Tho District Commissioners aro favorably
disposed toward tho scheme of sotting apart
tho reservation at tho corner of Ninth street
and Pennsylvania avonuo for tho erection of a
building to bo dovotcd to tho florists who are
now doing business in tho Centro Market,
Tho project Is being worked up by Iho market
florists and Gardoncr Smith, of tho Botanical
Gardens. Tho ldoa Is to remove tho trees and
foundation that now adorn tho plnco and
erect a market butldtng.
Florists who do not do business In Centro
Market aro not at all enthusiastic over tho
scheme Mr. John R. Freeman, of 15 and
Thirteenth streets, Bald yesterday that tho
regularly established florists, those that pay a
license to carry on tho business, wero op-
S06cd to tho erection of tho building for tho
encfit of a few. "It Is class legislation,"
said Mr. Freeman, "and In tho name of the
florists who by thrift and oaergy havo built up
a business here, pay taxes or a heavy rent on
tho property they occupy, I enter my pro
test against tho erection of a building do
signed solely to benofit a f ow florists whoso
solo property Is generally tholr stock
in trade. It is not right to erect on
a Government reservation a building froo from
taxes, where a certain few can exhibit their
goods at no cost, whilo I and my associates
have- to pay regularly into tho coffers of tho
District considerable sums of money to carry
on our business. What right have tho Com
missioners to act in tho premises any way T If
tho Commissioners will ivo me the prlvllejo
of the reservation at Thirteenth street and
Pennsylvania avenue, I will put up a building
that will bo an ornament to tho city."
. , . .
The Bids Tor the Foorhoato Too High.
The bids for tho poorhouse, having proved,
after a second bidding, too high, tho Commis
sioners havo referred the question to tho Dis
trict Attorney for his opinion as to tho pro
priety of allowing tho lowest bidder, after
cutting sufficient work from tho plans to
bring it below tho appropriation, to navo the
contract. The attorney has Btated that in
order to do so, each of tho othor bidders will
have to sign a paper giving his permission for
tho same. Mr. Entwlslo has accordingly noti
fied all bidders to call at his office with a view
to obtaining their consent to this action.
Kstlinntes for District Expenses.
The Commissioners spent ume tlmo yester
day in examlnlng'the various estimates which
havo been submitted to them by tho several
departments of tho District government for
tho sums necessary to conduct them for tho
next fiscal year, preparatory to fixing tho esti
mates for the District Appropriation bill to be
submitted to the noxt session of Congress.
Considerable ground was carefully gono over,
hut no definite action was taken. At the request
of Colonel Robert, Captain Rossell represented
him at this consultation.
A New Opening.
A new store has been opened by Mr. J. C.
Hutchinson on tho northeast corner of F and
Thirteenth streets. All the appointments of
the place are tasteful and the appearance of tho
millinery parlors indicate elegance. A rich
Brussels carpet of especial paitern covers tho
floor and all the other fixtures of tho rooms
aro unlquo. Their ornamental parts aro of
quartered sycamore, a beautiful wood re
sembling bird's-eye maple. Large windows
make the store an unusually well lighted ono,
with combination fixtures giving a choice of
either gas or electric lights in tho evening.
On tho counter and shelves Is an elaborate
dlsplayof hats, bonnets, and other samples of
millinery technique, including specimens of
lato Parisian goods. Mr. Hutchinson's long
experience in this country and abroad as a
buyer of goods for Now York houtos makes
him an authority on millinery.
