LANSING, Mich., July 26. —Gover- nor Osborn has received a letter from the secretary of the International Longshoremen’s association of Buf falo, N * Y., containing a complaint, filed by the secretary of the union at Traverse City, Mich., to the effect that i&tients at the Traverse City hospital Are employed in unloading freight. The international secretary says that if he understands the Mich igan statute there is a clause prohib iting hutane patients from competing with free laborers. In replying to the complaint of the international secretary. Governor Os born says: **l hate your letter of July 22nd, enclosing copy of letter from Charles Kroupa. 1 will have the matter look ed up at once, but really, Mr. O’Con nor, I wish to be frank and direct and open with you. I believe In or ganised labor, and I believe in even a minimum wage, and I am for the rights cf labor at all times; but 1 hold the state of Michigan to be above the laboring classes, although the laboring classes are the most im portant eietnent in the state; and if the state of Michigan has servants or proteges who can work, and there is worl to do. that work ought to be done for the state by them. "I do not believe that tlx* state or the state institutions should compete with free labor In the open market whenever it can be avoided, but I do believe that the state should do as nearly all of its own work as is possible. I am making these state , roent* .in general because 1 have not iufestigated the situation at Traverse City. If Dr. Munson said the funds of the institution were low, he told the exact truth."

STOCK MARKET IS DULL AND NARROW.BUT THERE IS STRONG UNDERTONE Buying is Heavy in Some of the Standard Shares —Several Make Sharp Gains. STEADY TONE AT CLOSE Purchases by Banking Interests are Due to Satisfactory Reports On Crops NEW YORK. July 26—The stock market lost much of the enthusiasm that it showed during the final trad ing of yesterday, and. after some activity at the opening, it became rather dull and narrow. Prices held firm, however, and there was a strong undertone throughout, with sharp gains In on or two shares On the ad vance there were few offerings, anti In some of the standard shares the buying appeared to be heavy. An nouncement that some of the trans continental lines would soon advance rtoes sharply, so as to bring the long and short haul charges upon an equal basis, and thus conform with the prin ciples laid down in the recent de cision, excited a good deal of atten tion. The stock market paid little atten tion to the YY’ashington news, but the developments Indicated that much of the buying by banking Interests was based on private advices touching the satisfactory progress of the crops. The banks put out relatively little money on time, and such offerings as were made appeared to l>e chiefly for short periods. Some of the largest j \\ r all-st. hanks confined their offerings ; to loans. The market closed steady.
