The district court was engaged on yester day, and will resume to-day, the trial of an important case entitled John Pittorf vs. The St. Paul & Sioux City liailroad company. The suit is brought up on an appeal from the decision of certain commis sioners, Mebsrs. Albert Armstrong, Wm. Lindeke .and Pascal Smith, appointed to condemn and aaseaB damages on property to be used by the St. Paul and Sioux City railroad company for the site of their railroad shops, transfer houses, etc. The commissioner found it necessary to take three-fourths of a lot belonging to plaintiff, Pittorf, in Stinson, Ramsey and Brown's addition, and awarded him $700. therefor. The plaintiff appealed from this award, and claims that his lot, number 18 in block 28 in the addition named, though his house was left, is ruined to the full extent of $.2,000. Hon. W. .P. Murray and Hon. James Smith, Jr., appeared for defendaut, and the plaintiff's interests are committed to Hon. C. D. O'Brien. The case is one of interest, and may be made a test one. If the plaintiff obtains a verdict other appeals may follow, and the work of the commission be virtually undone. The line of argument adopted by the plaintiff is that tbe con demnation was inaugurated by the Business Men's Union and that Messrs. Armstrong and Lindeke, commissioners, are, as well, members of the union, and in consequence being interested parties, their condemnation or assessment of damages should be taken cum grano. The taking of evidence will continue this morn ing, aud the case will doubtless go to the jury this afternoon. PERSONAL. Geo. A. Armstrong, of Iowa, is at the Claren don. M. W. Myers, Bozeman, M.

The Downward Tendency .In the "Wheat MarketA Drop or Three Cents Fr om YesterdayThe Balls Holding Pro visions. Special Telegram to the Globe. OHIOAOO, Oct. 22.As was predicted in my telegram to tbe GLOBE last night, the wheat market opened lower this morning, owing to European advices, whioh indicated a downward tendency. The drop was 1% cents, but on rumor of better cables the de cline was recovered and an advance of two cents from the lowest point took place. These latter cable rumors proved false, and reliable reports both from New York and Liverpool had a bad effect on the market. It dosed on the regular afternoon board at $1.18 for November and $1.20 for December. This is about three cents below the close of the market Tues day. There is an evident shaky feeling among tbe bulls, for after the board Novem ber sold on the curbstone at $1.17.%. De cember was weak on the curb at the dosing price on the board. Th bears ere ready for a big raid at the e^rhe" opportune moment, and it will require a go^ deal of stiffening to keep the market rj[. lhere were numer ous free sellers to day for future delivery and decided indications of a lower market to-morrow. There is no change in the situation en corn and is not likely to be so long as th-3 is sustained. The only variety will be a continuation of the squeeze. The receipt of 80,000 live hogs caused an early decline in provisions, but later in the day the bulla crofc control of the market and forced prices* up, January pork closing at $10.35 and lard at $6.37^. ctuthc .lead. A terribly painful accident took place about two miles beyond Lake Phalen night before last which in all probability will re sult in the victim's death. The victim to the unfortunate affair, a tanner named Peter Nelson, was accidentally struck on the head and frightfully injured by a 6tone thrown by a hired man. The la-'ter indi vidual was in the aet of cleaning a quantity of rubbish from the floor of the barn, in tbe course of which he threw a large stone through the open door into the area beyond. Mr. Nelson appeared in tbe door way just as tbe stone was thrown, whioh struck him with full force between the eyes. fell to the ground unconscious, and was carried to the house where he remained insensible for a long time. Dr. Talbot Jones, of this city, was summoned, and a diagnosis of the in juries showed that the nose had been brok en, and the skull fearfully crushed. Tbe case is considered critical and the patient's condition is extremely precarious, grave doubts being entertained of his recovery. Combining for Charitable Work, To-day an important meeting, embracing all the public charities of whatever character in the State, will take place at the rooms of the Y. M. C. A. The convention will meet under the auspices of the Relief society, of this city, or rather at the suggestion of tbe society, and the object is to arrange and harmonize all dif ferences arising in the work of the several charities, either here or in Minneapolis, or elsewhere. Propositions will be made and planB devised whereby there can be an inter change of beneficiaries from this city to Min neapolis and elsewhere, or vice versa, according to the character of the charity from whioh relief is sought, when one place maintains one institution of relief and a dif ferent charity is supported elsewhere. For instance, Minneapolis has no Home for the Friendless, St. Panl has. If tbe convention proves harmonious, Minneapolis may hereafter have her friendless cared for here, which she reciprocates in some cher way. The convert tion meets to-day at 10 o'clock. Arrest *f the Maulers. Yesterday afternoon a young man named Henry Dunbar came to police headquarters and stated that two men had abused and threat ened to fiafht him on Western avenue.

In the evening theie was an entire change of programme, in troducing new songs and dances, a fresh speech on the political situation by Billy Rice, and the burlesque of "Pinafore" by the entire company. The latter was brim full of fun, and Billy Rice as Sweet Little Butterbowl kept the audience in a roar.
