From Sunday's Edition
The following matter on this page appeared
In Sunday's edition. Tho reason for this repub
lioa is because our regular mail rate of sub
scription does not include the Sunday issue, and
comparatively few in the country care to pay
extra for the Sunday edition, which lies in the
St. Paul postoflice and goes out in the same
mail with the Monday paper. The more im
portant news, to tho extent of two or three col
umn-, is, therefore, published on Monday foJ
the benefit of country subscribers who do not see
the Sunday Globe.
Wheat Forced Up Several Points, an_ Corn
-.likewise Booming—Greater Activity nnd
Higher Prices Realized for Provisions.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
OnicAGO, April 21. —The bulls had no
opposition to-day. As usual the movement
started in the wheat pit, where rumors be
came current that Armour & Parks who
represents the New York syndicate that is
dealing here, had combined to force prices
up and had fixed on $1.25 a bushel as their
limit for May. The short interest became
alarmed and bid figures up rapidly. Corn
gained strength in sympathy. Provisions
were buoyant and excited, and other mar
kets were influenced.
In wheat, as before stated, a -'rong
feeling was developed, a__. trading was
active with piices ruling i .>.*r-iderably
higher than yesterday, Tnere vas nothing
particular developed in outside influ
ences to cause the sharp advance,
but there was an urgent speculative
inquiry both on local and outside
account and to this was the advance
attributed. The feeling was nervous and
decidedly "bullish."' and while offerings
were quite liberal and required a continual
advance to bring out sellers and enable
buyers to fill their orders. The early mar
ket was from the same to }^@%c higher
than closing figures on 'change yesterday,
but }£@%a lower than the closing figures
on call board yesterday afternoon. Later
under an active demand prices were ad
vanced 2 14©2;jjC above inside prices, and
finally closed 2i 4 'c higher for May, 2j^c
higher for June, and 23 higher for July
than the closing figures on 'change yester
day. June and July are now the principal
futures traded in. Winter and spring
wheat were held higher owing to the ad
vance in the speculative grade, but little
business was transacted in either. Although
the demand continues moderate the offer
ings are liberal.
Flour was more active, and dealers were
asking better prices for all qualities, and
were said to be obtaining a good advance
for the finer family and bakers' brands,
with the options in wheat giving a decided
change in tone to this market, while with
light grinding for some time it is thought
an established advance will be sustained.
Rye and buckwheat flour were quite low.
Bran and millst___ were in lighter supply
and doing better.
Corn was active and prices higher,
due to speculative influence. Receipts
were a trifle larger and foreign ad
vices less favorable, but influence
by the upward tendency of wheat and an
urgent demand on speculative account,*?, ith
no great desire to sell, a higher range of
prices was established. The markets
opened easier, and prices earlier ruled
about %c lower, but later advanced }l[@-}4c
per bushel for various futures above the
inside prices, then receded a trifle, fluctu
ated, and finally closed }ie higher for May,
}£c higher for June, and /c higher for
July, than the closing figures on 'change
yesterday. No. 2 was again in good re
quest, and offerings only moderate. There
are a good many outside orders coming in,
and local business to-day was on a moderate
Oats were rather quiet. The market was
but little influenced by the advancing ten
dency of the leading market.-. July was
the only future which improved materially.
Cash oats were quiet and tame: No. 2
quoted at 41^4 c, and other grades nominal.
Sample lots in larger supply. Offerings of
mixed oats rather exceeded the demand, and
they were easy, but sold fairly and ruled
steady. The entire daily arrivals are go
ing in the sample market and bringing
more on track as free on cars than can be
had for the same grade in store.
The speculative business undoubtedly
would have been heavier to-day had not the
attention of the principal operators in this
market been engrossed by the excitement
. in other markets.
Rye was very firm to-day, but nothing
of account could be done, owing to the
scarcity of sellers. A good inquiry exist
ed, and full yesterday's prices were ob
tained. Sample lots of barley were slow
and easy. There was some demand for
No. 3 in special location. The general
market was no better, and trade was lim
Provisions showed unexpected life to
day; activity, firmness and buoyancy were
the features of this market. Under the
influence of an active speculative demand
which appeared at tho opening,
and was well sustained throughout the day,
a strong feeling, accompanied by a sharp
upward movement was witnessed. Higher
prices were the rule, and tho advance real
ized which was general and substantial,
was well supported up to the close.
"Pork was the favorite article with specu
lators, though in lard and short ribs a
good business was transacted. The day's
trading aggregated a large volume. The
trading in pork was characterized by un
usual activity and excitement. The specu
lative demand was larger and more urgent
than on any day for some time past, and
higher prices were established
all round. Opening sales weri*
made at about the closing prices on yes
terday's call, but the market promptly
improved and closed 32%@35c higher
than opening figures. The trading was
confined mainly to May and the later
futures. Cash was quiet. April inactive.
Lard was iv good speculative demand
and higher, the advance established
amounting to 7}£@lo cars compared with
yesterday's closing prices on 'change. May
and the later futures received more atten
tion from traders than the near futures.

as, recently killed by Indians near Silver
City, giving an outline of the situation in
the Indian country and the efforts being
made to recover Charley McComas, the lit
tle son of the judge, who was captured by
the Indians when they killed the parents.
The good offices of the government of
Chihuahua and Sonora, Mexico, have been
secured, a large reward has been offered,
and photographs circulated throughout the
entire Indian country. The whereabouts
of the boy is not known,and but little hope
is entertained of his recovery during hos
tilities. Should a truce occur he may be
obtained, but should the party in whose
hands he is be attacked by our troops, or
by the Mexicans, there is no doubt he would
be killed at once. The letter says the feel
ing against the Indians, among the people
throughout Arizona, is very intense, and
they are strongly opposed to allowing any
Indian reservation to remain in Arizona.
Beyond this the letter contains nothing

Depabtment of the Intebiob, Washing
ton, D. C, April 21, 1883.— Sidney Dillon,
Esq., President of the Union Pacific Rail
road, New York City--Sir: The commis
sioner of railroads, in a communication to
me dated the 15th inst, submits statements
(copies of which are herewith enclosed)
showing a cash requirement from your
company, for the year ended Dec. 31, 1882,
under the act of May 7, 1878, to be $875,
-905.51, added to interest requirements
claimed from your company to Dec. 31,
1881, the amount now claimed to
be due to - the United
States after deducting transportaion
services performed to December 31,1882,
is $1,727,742.54. In addition to demands
for payment of various sums already made
for periods prior to January 1, 1882, 1 de
mand the payment on behalf of the United
States from the Union Pacific Railway
company of the sum of $825,905.51, which
is a cash requirement from the company
for the year ending December 30,1882.
Attention is called to the statement of
the commissioner, as follows: The total
balance claimed by the government under
the act of|May 7,1878, up to December 31,
1882, is $1,727,742.54. If the whole amount
claimed by the company on account of
contested items for new construction and
new equipment be deducted there would
still remain an uncontested balance of
$1,036,824.88, as appears from the
following statement, and not a part of
which has been paid or tendered except
$69,358.83. On July 26, 1878, the total
cash balance claimed by the government
to Dec. 31, 1881, is $901,837.03; for the
year ending Dec. 31, 1882, $825,905.51.
Total, $1,727,792.54. Deducting 25
per cent, of the amount claimed by
the company for new construction and
new equipment to Deo. 1, 1881, $595,
-359.96 and 25 per cent. of the
same for 1882, $95,557.70, $691,917.66, a
balance is due the government of $1,036,
-824.88. If the company has any defense
to this part of the cash payment required,
this office has not been informed of it. I
desire also to call your attention to the
sixth section of the act of May 7, 1878,
which provides that no dividend
shall be voted, made or paid for
or to any stockholder or stock
holders in either of the said companies
respectively, at any time when tho said
company shall be in default of payment
of either of the sums required as afore
said, to be paid into said sinking fund, or
in respect to payment of 5 per cent, of
the net earnings, etc.
If your company should decline to ac
cede to my demands for the payment of
the whole amount due to the United
States, I suggest that at least a pay
ment of so much of the balance due the
company does not contest, viz:
$1,036,824.88 to be made with
out further delay and without
prejudice to questions in controversy
which are proper for judicial determina
tion. If the company should pay into the
treasury of the United Slates the uncon
tested balance as above, I desire it to be
distinctly understood that the demand for
payment of the whole amount, as herein
before stated, is not waived. Of course,
you must well know that I have not the
authority to demand or accept a less
amount than is due to the United States
under the law. Yours respectfully,
[Signed] H. M. Telleb, Secretary.

quested Attorney General Brewster to ap
pear in behalf of the commissioner of the

ceedings inaugurated by the state of

It is reported to the treasury depart
ment that smuggling is being extensively
practiced on the Rio Grande river, and
that a difference of opinion exists between
the district attorney for the southern dis
trict of Texas and tbe collector of customs
at Brownsville as to the authority of the
officers of the latter to arrest persons de
tected in the act of smuggling. The ques
tion has been referred to the solicitor of
the treasury for his opinion. The solicitor
says he has no doubt that the officers have
the same legal right to arrest the offenders
that they have to seize smuggled goods,
provided the arrests are not made on Mex
ican territory.
The managers of the Garfield memorial
hospital have purchased a piece of proper

R. H. Melroy, of the Yakama Indian
agency, Washington territory, writes to
the commissioner of Indian affairs that
the recent trouble between the Indians of j
his agency and the white settlers in the i
vicinity arose from a quarrel occasioned
by lie scattering of poisoned meat near
the •. ape of the Indians on the Colum
bia river by one of the white settlers, the j
Indians complaining that when the gras3 j
gre>*| around the moat their horses
might cat of it and be poisoned. Tha I
agent says that the Indians ought t i be
brought to the reservation, as it is becom
ing very difficult for them to find sub
sistence where they are in camp, and as
long as they remain, their troubles will
be of a greater or less magnitude and will
be constantly arising.

Reports From Cattle and Horse Stocks.
Austin, Texas, April 21.—A gentleman
largely interested in cattle, who has just
returned from an extended trip among the
ranches, says that nearly five herds of
cattle averaging 2,500 each will be driven
out of the state this spring. The entire
drive is estimated at 26,000, against 35,000
last year. Most of these cattle will go to
Dodge City, Kas., and Ogallalla, Neb.
The shipments by rail are said to be over
estimated and will probably exceed 50,000,
Large herds of horses also are moving
toward the markets. The importation of
20,000 cattle reported from Brownsville,
Texas a day or so ago, are from the state
of New Lion, Mexico] and 26,000 head of
cattle are already gathered to be driven
across the Rio Grande. They wore pur
chased by Milford, a prominent stock man
of Colorado and are intended to stock his
ranches in that state. The price paid was
$12 per head.

estate in valued at $3,000,000 while his life
is insured for $300,000.
