ALL BROKE UP. Ihe U rain Markets Experience A Very Perceptible Decline. WHEAT DROPS FULLY TWO CEXTS. Corn and Oats Somewhat Stronger but Liable to Tumble. PROVISIONS BADLY DEMORALIZED. Continued Activity in the Market for Northwestern Stocks. CHICAGO. [Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Chicago, June 15.— The deadlock is bro ken in the wheat market, and the bears are the victors at present, scoring a decline of more thin two cents. Eleven bags of new wheat in St. Louis was the sensation which turneu the scale, and rast in Kentucky and Tennessee and damage to the California crop were shelved to be used later when the feeling becomes bullish again. Now that the market has broken, everybody will be waiting for the bottom to buy. Another feature to day was a break in pro visions, pork going off f>Oc and lard being very weak. The adulterations disclosed by the investigations in progress have hurt the legitimate dtniMud and the tendency 1.- .-till downward. Unless the inquiry for shipment materially increases mean time, a rally next month will be difficult to br:::^ about. Oats were easier, rye lower and barley dull. The receipts of grain to-day show somewhat of a falling off, <5G oars of wheat, 4Ti<> c xrs of corn and 132 cars of oats being inspected in. The vessel charters were large, providing for » bushels of corn and 210,000 bushels of oats. The shipments were 4,130 bushels of wheat, 400,000 bushels of corn and 227, --190 bushels of oats. The McGeoch lard investigation is with in abojt a week of its close. To-day Mc- Geocii virtually closed his case, and on Mon day Fowler Bros, are expected to begin their answer. At this stage of the proceedings a prediction as to the outcome would be precL-.t are, but there is a good deal of ex planation for the 'Fowlers to make. Lake freights were a trifle easier on the basi iof 2} [c for corn and - >l oC for wheat toßazlalo, and I','c for corn to Kingston, Railway freights :;re quoted steady and unc 1 ;.- Th^rs was a good deal of excitement at times on the board, i specially in the wheat pit. Trading in that article was quite large, but in j;oi»ii part on local account, and tho demand came mainly from parties who were covering previous sales in which they had ?. pront. Foreign advices were of an nrf avertible tencr to holders, while what crop rope: is were received wern of a more encouraging uafur:-. These facts and the new wheat soars brought out a strong realiz ing pressure by longs and a great deal of stuff was unloaded, including a large amount held for account of parties whose margins varo either exhausted or on which stop oiJors had bsou placed at certain figure. Thero \?a3 a . ran . shaking out of small speculators when the break got nndfcr way. The fluctuations were rapid. Wheat forJnly delivery opened at $1.11)£. sold ip to $1.11 then down to $1.1034 ; continued very unsettled until 10 o'clock. when $1 10 ! . > was asked, became weaker again, and at ;; o'clock was offered freely at $1.09% with f1.09% bid. The other options fluc tuated in about the same proportions The desire to nell exceeded the demand throughout the day. On the board the de cline was lj.£c, and on the call %©%<s more. The call sales aggregated 1,500,00'J bushels. AY inter and spring wheat lower in sympathy with the speculative grade, and very quiet. Trading in flower was very light. Neither local jobbers nor shippers manifested any special desire to purchase, and the market was q not ably dull. The feeling was easy, and while prices were nominally un changed, it would require concessions from former figures to effect sales of any amount. C^ra was active but weaker in sympa thy with wheat, yet offerings wer-.- not urgent, the bears bsin/ deterred from selling freely by ir° - -'.iipmeiifs and reports that a large amount is now being loaded in vessels. Prices were sustained by the good •s, who have it sold in it a good profit Receipts also a little more inquiry >rs. The feeling de veloj Little unsettled, but no very change occured in prices, which closed just a shade lower than yesterday. Foreign advices were unfavorable, which io_:.-:. : with the weakness in the local and pro\ isiou markets had some The weather early was cloudy and threatened rain, while freight engage ments were reported large. Prices fluctuated within a range of about }.ikt \. c and closed }^i";'^ lower than on 'change yesterday. On call there was some largo buying by prominent brokers, Geo. C. Walker it Co. being particularly promi nent. About 1,000,000 bu. ohanged hands. Oats are weak on the long futures, ow ing to good crop reports, byt near futures are relatively stronger. The state depart ment of agriculture announces a consider ably increased acreage and an average condition, fully equal to that a month ago, although not so good as on June 1, 1882. Ob the board the speculative market partook of the weakness developed in the leading markets generally. Trading was comparatively quiet and was at about \& Q%e decline in prices. The cash market was also easier. The offerings were not so liberal as some time ago, but the demand, both on speculative and shipping account, has become rather tame. No. 2 cash was not offered until prices had dropped to 30% for speculative price, and this* was the rate for No. 2 in store. On the call a quar ter v liion, bushels sold '.j ■<> "-^c lower than ontle board. The sellers "outnumbered the 1) :yers. Eye was a weak market, cash breaking lc and futures }4@%a on the board, and 1c later in the day. The arrivals were fair. 42 cars, and the demand from all sources light. The market for barley in store was in active and trading by sample exceedingly light. The arrivals have become very small, and at present but few buyers are coming on the market. Hog products are "sick." The large re ceipts of hogs continue, 18,000 arriving to day and selling at yesterday's figures. For the week the total will be about 115, --000, against 102,000 a year ago. A decidedly weak and unsettled feeling prevailed in the provision trade on the board, but dealing was active, especially on speculative account. Offerings for fu ture delivery were unusnally heavy, while the demand was only fairly active and mainly from "shorts." Prices ruled de cidedly weak throughout the day, and were reduced materially on all leading descrip tions and closed tame. Shipping demand fairly active at the reduced prices. For eign advices were unfavorable, but prices , were j.ot quotably lower. Eastern markets were easier, and prices favored buyers. Receipts of product were fair, and the shipments moderate. Pork was offered freely for future delivery, selling off 35 @ 40c from yesterday's quotations, and clos ing quiet at inside figures. On call a fur ther loss of D^lOc was suffered. There was a fair demand at the reduction, but the j longs seemed to be doing little to sustain the market. Lard was active but weak and lower. Offerings .were very free. Prices were reduced 10@20c on the board while on call a period of great depression increased the decline to 20 a 40c, July closing at $11.12)^@11.20,and September.a full dollar less. McGeoch's ''corner" j seemed to be entirely forgotten. SEW lORK. I [Special Telegram to the Globe.] New Yobk, June 15. — The Vanderbilt stocks were very active and strong at the commencement of business, particularly Lake Shore, also the grangers. The Wa- [ bashes came next, with a rise to the com ! mon above 30. Before midday the mar- , ket became exceedingly dull, prices droop ed, and at one time it looked as though a slight downward turn all around might be at hand. Later prices stiffened and Wabash ; sold at 31^ and Ohio and Missis- | sippi advanced 1 per cent. The volume of '■ business has been lighter than on yester- ! day. There was no special pressure of ' stocks at any time. The closing quota- : tion on New York Central is less tbe 2 | per cent, dividend and Northwestern com mon is also ex-diviJend of 3% per cent. Canadian Pacific was active. The third option j of $10,000,000 stock is reported as having j been taken at the price fixed by the syndi- ' cate, and considerable bull talk ensued in i consequence. Jersey Central and Reading weaked on the report that tli3 Pennsyl vania railroad have leased the Lehigh Val ley. The room traders offered stocks pretty freely during the last half hour, and prices were inclined to be easier at the I end. The Vanderbilt stocks have begun j to move, and brokers identified with them i say they will very quickly recover under the dividends declared. The firmness with which Western Union holds its advance is claimed to be indicative of a fur ther advance. The Northern Pacific stocks have strong support, and the Vil- j lard people have bought freely, without showing evidence of steam or of other manipulation. The short interest and the interest composed of parties who have realized and who wish to recover their holdings are talking very bearish. They say the strength of the market is due \ wholly to manipulation. Mr. Gould is said to have been a large seller, and D. P. Morgan is reported as intimating to friends that it is not worth while to be | greedy for profits. Mr. Johnes reports himself temporarily a bear. Mr. Bell and ! Mr. Bird have been prominent among i offerers of stock. Mr. Smith is rather non-committal, but is thought to \ believe prices high enough for the present, ftfff Against this] surface current of bearishness is a very decided strength in prices. A broker among the most conservative and best informed en | the street, said to-day : "I hear all this bear talk, but it has ceased to have much effect upon me. If Gould carries out his j plans as now outlined, Mr. Morgan cannot i do very much. Of course he can put Jersey Central up and down, but granted a few things the market will go up in spite ' of Mr. Morgan or any other man. It ' looks to me like the beginning of a bull I market." An operator said: '"I under- i stand Vanderbilt's trip abroad was quite largely for the purpose of correcting false rumors in regard to the con- ' dition of the properties. A very i determined effort has been made by a i party here to create uneasiness abroad ! with regard to American securities. When ; Vanderbilt reached the other side he found ! bis misrepresentations worse than he had J supposed. He came back very indignant j toward certain people and I understand a I combination has been formed to punish the bear interest in Vanderbilt stocks. I ' hear a proposition to permit covering was ; very haughtily rejected." Mr. Keene is thought to be a buyer of j St. Paul. Brokers supposed to represent j him have been large purchasers. Points have been given to buy St. Paul for 110 next month. The fact that the company has wiped out its floating debt has extend, ed a good influence. The decision of the board not to build much road this year is helping the stock. There have been some rumors to the effect that Mr. Mitchell may resign the presidency of the company next fall. In case he should do so he will prob ably be succeeded by Mr. Merrill. People who know something about the matter say Mr. Mitchell would probably make his resignation conditioned on the acceptance of the position by Mr. Merrill. Bee I.iil<- Sleepers to llosloit. St. Louis, June 15. — The Bee Line rail road will commence next Monday night running through sleepers from here to Boston via. the New York Central and Boston & Albany road*.

FOREMAN CRANE EXBJLSISS THE REASONS FOR THE ACQUITTAI.. How Rerdell Was Fixed— The Jury Didn't Believe a Word He Said— Bob l ojjersoll Thinks it a Most Righteous Verdict— Mr. Joslyn Explains How it Was Done — Dor sey Serenaded by the Colored Republican Club— His Letter to Secretary Martin of tike National Republican Committee. [Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Washington, June 15. — Foreman Crane said to-day regarding the cause of the ver dict found by the star route jury: "There was not one of them that believed a word Rerdell or Moore said, or much that Walsh said. It was an improbable story that Walsh would allow Brady to take §5,000 in his notes from him and put them into his pocket, and then part with them like a philosopher. It is too absurd a man of the ilk of Brady should do such a thing; he was likely at least to sing out "stop thief." The manufactured evidence of course had a great effect on th« jury. The Chico let ter and other things. The jury feit that while there were some suspicions, there was not enough positive evidence to war rant breaking up five families." "Did the jury think the government counsel were engaged in manufacturing evidence ':" "No; but they did think the government counsel ought to have abandoned his evi dence when they saw what it was, and not have tried to still make something out of it. Mr. Merrick tried to explain away the Chico letter by saying it was written in 187!». The government also made an effort to show that S . W. Dorsey wrote many hands when the jury was satisfied the papers in question were written by Rerdell. These were things that rather hurt the prosecution than did them good. The jury have a very fine opinion of Judge Wyle, his great ability as a judge, his great knowledge of law, his self-possession and self-reliance. All spoke of him in com plimentary terms yesterday morning be fore going into the court. The jury were made up of better men than the people thought. The colored men on the jury were four as clear headed men as I ever saw. They had good memories and paid close attention to the evidence and arguments. They are very nice, substantial, sober, honest men. There were some of them that changed opinions during the trial — men who started out with an opinion that the defendants were guilty. I did not know, however, ho^ one of them stood until we retired . It surprised me somewhat that those who voted for convic tion did not go as I supposed they were going, and those who voted for acquittal did not vote as I supposed." "Do you think any of the jurors were improperly influenced!"' '"No, I do not." "An interesting question is raised by the verdict in the cases of l!erdt>ll and Peck." "¥e?, that is an interesting point. In the jury room after it was agreed to acquit, one of the jurors said: "Rerdell has plead i d guilty of conspiracy. He can't be pun i ished without one or more is connected ; with him. Having acquitted all but one, Peck, who is dead, it might look as though Peck, though dead was in a conspiracy ; with Rerdell. I said that Rerdell was out : of the case. It seemed to me but due to I Peck, though beyond the jurisdiction of j the court, and the other members of the . jury thought it due to his memory, to , his widow and orphan children, that the stigma should not be allowed to rest on his name, and that he should not bo required , to stand side by side with Rerdell as a ' conspirator. We felt he ought to ' stand with the other defendants who were acquitted as not guilty, but we i were powerless to do anything to vindicate him in our verdict under the instructions : of court. I have no doubt the acquittal of ! others carried with it the acquittal of I Peck, and Rerdell stands alone as guilty of conspiracy. Everything against Peck i seems to be the same as against the others, and the same applied to Peck as to the others. If he had been alive he would have been acquitted." INGEBSOIX'S VIEWS. Ingersoll's views on the trial and its I outcome are set forth in the following mi i terview: "For about two years the gov- I ernment has put forth every effort to con [ vict the defendants. The result ought to I have been reached in the other ; trial, and would have been had it not been I for the illegal interference of the govern j ment. There never was the slightest evi [ dence of any conspiracy, and I always felt sure the defendants would be acquitted provided we got a jury of twelve men who were not only honest but courageous. : Men who were not afraid of the govern ment, and who care more for justice than for the threats of power. We had this time a good jury. We had a good fore man, who I believe is Emitted to be a per fectly honest, reliable and brave man. I do not believe there is a man in the dis trict with a better reputation. I must ad mit I was fearful we would never succeed in getting a jury not one of whom could be frightened or terrorized. You will remember that the foreman of the last jury was indicted on the day this trial began. You will also re member the letters written by the attorney general, by Mr. Bliss and McVeagh, for j the purpose of poisoning public opinion. I You will remember, too, that the president j joined in the chase by removing Ainger and Parker and Marshal Henry. Capt. Henry is a perfectly upright man, and yet the president removed him, and the re moval was made to affect this trial. The government left nothing undone. Every juryman was shadowed by de tectives, and yet not one of those jurors gave up his manhood. The department of justice ought to admit the whole prosecution was a mistake. I pre sume this trial ends the star route busi : ness. The government can certainly | afford to rest on its laurels. It has done all it can. It selected its own case. It has had every advantage, and has most signally j failed. Any further effort in the same di -1 rection, will not, in my judgment, com ] mend itself to the American people. Of i course I am fully satisfied with the result — gratified not only on account of the de fendants, but on account of their families, ■ and because one thing has been demon ' strated that a jury has been found in ! Washington with the courage to bring in a | verdict against the power of the govern -1 ment. The government did everything to ! convict these men except calling out the array and navy." It is not believed that the trovernrneat i ST.P4UL, SATURDAY MOKNING, JUNE 1 6, 1883 will presß any of the other cases against Brady and Dorsey to trial, and that the in dictment against Kellogg, which was to have been tried next month, will be post poned till next fall, and then will be aban doned. THB COST. The following are the payments made by the government to special attorneyt: The statement will throw light on the gen eral question of the cost of this trial: Bliss, $46,208.18; Brewster, $5,000; Cook, $6,945.18; Gibson, $5,000; Ker, $27,872.48; Merrick, $32,000; Pinkerton, $2,494.64; grand total, $125,979.48. To the above payments others are to bs added which will considerably increase the aggregate paid to government lawyers, say at least 25 per cent, additional. joslvm's verdict. When Assistant Secretary Joslyn was asked what he thought of the verdict he explained how it was obtained from a reminiscence from his own experience. Some years ago he defended a man who was sued on a note. The rights of the case were on his side, but unfortunately the evidenc ewas on the other side. He got twenty-five or thirty friends of the defendant to attend the trial regular ly and always sit close to the jury and let no one else get near, and manifest approv al of everything that was said that was favorable to the defense aad so far as the court would let them express indifference to or dissent from everything the lawyers on the other side said. After a five days' trial though the evidence was all on the side of plaintiff, the jury brought in a verdict for the defendant. In the celebrated case which just closed scarcely anyone who was interested in securing conviction except the prosecuting attorneys attended the trial, while the court room was crowded day after day with friends of the defend ants, who made their sympathies apparent at every turn. The jury wa3 simply mag netized by the well-wishers that dominated in the court room . The more honest and open to conviction they were, the more readily they absorbed the influences thrown around them. For six months the jurors have been breathing an atmosphere created by the defense, and they couldn't help acquitting. There is no doubt about the guilt of the defendants, but the gov ernment had no show from the start, un less it had packed the court room as the defendants did. Mr. Merrick is a fine, clear, cute lawyer, who managed his case well, but he has no such magnetism as lugersoll. He can't stir the feelings of the crowd as Ingersoll. Bob denounced methods that he said the government has resorted to in that hearty and enthusiastic way he has, and the crowd was with him and together they overpowered the minds of the jury. DOBSEX SERENADED AND MAKES A SPEECH. S.W. Dorsey was serenaded late this evening at his residence hy the colored Republican club of this city. He made a brief speech in acknowledgement of the courtesy, in which he said : k 'l thank you for the heart you have shown in calling here this evening. I thank you. not only for myself, but for all tho defendants. 1 thank you, not only for the defendants and their familie?,but I thank you for the cour age you havt- shown in the presence of all the dishonor that the government has tried to put upon me, in plastering the graves of mothers and thd cradles of babies with infamy by unjust power. Yon are brave enough, you are strong enough to rauo up your voice and your right hand against this attempted injustice. I ihank you for the courage yon have shown, I thank you for the piuck tlv-.t men like you can show. looking in the iace of power, but over and above aU that, this verdict has told a story in whose presence humanity will bow down, possibly not this year or next, but the time will come when it will be pointed to as Macauley pointed to the trial of Warren Hastings. The trembling wires that bore the message of ac quittal to Berlin, Moscow and Dublin told the poor, lowly and hopeless that there were yet twelve men that could be found who would deal justly by them, that there was not a government large enough, there was not a public treas ury fruitful enough, there were not leads of gold thick enough and there was not executive power great enough to seduce the judgment of twelve honest men. I don't care about myself. It is a matter of little consequence who is convicted or who is not. It is a matter of great conse quence whether there is any government powerful enough, or whether there is any treasury full enough to bow down a citi zen, however humble. This trial and this verdict has placed upon the books of jus tice a splendid record of the manhood of men. A jury made up of Democrats and Republicans, colored men and white men, Protestants, Catholics and Atheists, all agreed that the men charged were not guil ty. So it turns out that in the district of Columbia, where the cloud of power casls its shadow over every individual, that twelve men could be found who "would not bend the pregnant hinges of the knee that thrift might foilow fawning." A halo of glory, of truth, will hang about them as long as they live, and it will decorate every thatched cottage that has been built or will be built in the next thousand years. Good bye and I thank you. DOBSEX WHITES JOHN A. UABTTH. Ex-Senator Dorsey has written the fol lowing letter to the newly elected secretary of the Republican national committee: G eh. John A. Madtin, Atchxsox, Kas. — Dear Sir: At the time when I was con fined in a dark room and not able to see the walls that surrounded me, I received a letter from you which I answered by dic tation, as I have been obliged to do for many months. I supposed my answer was sent you. but it turns out the stenographic notes were never transcribed. I regret this for the reason that I would not wish to feel guilty of discourtesy to a man who has always been just to me. When I was appointed secretary of the Republican na tional committee at the request of Gen. Garfield and accepted the place at the earnest solicitation of Gen. Arthur, representing the Grant side of the house, and the Hon. Wm. E. Chandler represent ing the Blame side. I made the same re quest of Gov. McCormick, who was my predecessor, that you have made of me. I had at that time a fanciful notion that a record had been kept of the Republican party that showed its life and purpose, and that would leave a permanent history of its honorable existence and what had trans pired in 1856, 1860, 1864, 18G8 and 1872, and that the record belonged to the Re publican national committee, and that the secretary was the proper custodian of it. The answer I received from Gov. McCor mick was that no record had been kept. That a bonfire of forgetfulness was built to eat up what we had a right to as sume to be evidence of honesty at the end of each campaign. By the great mass of the people or intelligence in th 9 north, it is now believed for all time that there is not a scrap, a word, a dot or a line in any record that will show a wrongful act oa the (Elobe. TtrLfJJB J^^m /j*Lr MJ& J^|>>J^. .fljffiw,,- part of any person charged with duty representing the Republican party during a national campaign. Mr. Chandler was unquestionably the ablest man who served as an executive officer of the Republican national commit tee, being the first, if not the very first,who was recognized as the head of the Repub lican party in the sphere assigned him. It was therefore only proper that those who followed him should be governed by the precedents he laid down. Mr. Chandler gave Gov. McCormick no records. Gov. McCormick in response to a letter similar to the one you have written me, told me he had no records to give. They were my predecessors and you are my successor. I have nothing more to give to you than they had to give to me. I have a great mass of papers relating to the last cam paign. They are chiefly made up of let ters addressed to me and letters written by me to others, in which no one could have the slightest interest except to ob tain curious information. When I accepted the secretaryship, I made it a condition that not a penny of money subscribed for political expenses should come into my hands and there never was a dollar subscribed of the funds received by me or paid out by me person ally. The money was used under my direction, but all my personal expenses and the expenses of the clerks serving with me, were paid from my own pocket, amounting to something over .$13,000. II say this much, lest you may think I have j records showing receipts and expenditures j of 1880. The only records of that kind I j have are the paid checks of my own con- ' tribution and the unfortunate bank book ' showing charges of my own folly. : I regret more than I can tell that I made it possible that such records should be in my hands, but they are here, and I think it best to keep them a reminder of the splendid gratitude of a dishonest power. I do not owe the Republican national com mittee a cent of money or a grain of thankfulness. In the midst of the storm brought about by the efforts I had put forth under its direcions and in its behalf, a brutal assault was made upon me at the last meeting by the committee when I was not present to defend myself. Not one among the forty members present had the courage or the manhood to resent the miserable cowardice of an ambitious hypo crite, but never mind that. The balance sheets of justice will some time be written by a hand of honor, so far as you are per sonally concerned. If there is any paper in my possession. or any suggestion I can make that you think will be useful to you, I will be grati fied to respond to your call. Sincerely yours, Stephen W. Doksey. THE GIRLS PROTEST. Vassar's Graduates Kick Against a Long Established Practice— Principle at the Bottom of the Fight. [Special Telegram to the Globe. New Yobk, June 15. — Unlike most col lege rebellions, the mutiny of Vassar girls is based upon a principle of some import ance. They object to honor a system as detrimental to health, as deficient .is an in dex of ability and industry, as conducive to superficial work and as productive of unworthy motives. Tho class graduated yesterday petitioned for the abolition of the present honor system, and especially requested none of the members of the class to be appointed for commencement exercises, but that the addresses of the oc casion be delivered by the alum;. The fac ulty decline* +o yield to their wishes, announcing a resolution that the appointment of speakers of com mencement day hereafter, would be made on the grounds of the student's gen eral record of scholarship, her literary ability and her conduct during her col lege course. The failure of some of the appointed speakers to appear yesterday, has created a commotion at Yassar, but after the rebellious girls have departed from Poughkeepsie, and the excitement they have created has abated, the princi ple they have raised will remain for future debate and the reform they have demand ed may be urged by them with vigor in meetings of Vassar's alumni. Whatever may be said against the system of col lege honors, it must be admitted that life itself is filled with honors to win by in dustry and with prizes to be lost by indolence. Somewhat Annoyed. [Special Telegram to the Globe. ] Indianapolis, June 15. — Messrs. Hen dricks and McDonald are both vexed over the picturesque description of their meet ing at the Hotel Bates banquet as drawn by an imaginative but promising young journalist employed on the Juxirnal, and which has been given wide publication, more by reason of its humor than from any question of facts. A prominent Dem ocrat, also a guest at the banquet, said to night of that affair: "I am a friend of both gentlemen, and know of my own knowledge there was not a particle of foundation for the article. Hendricks and McDonald are not only friends, although their ambitions may cross, but their rela tions are cordial, and at the banqnet their conduct toward one another was quite as courteous as the proprieties of the occa - sion justified, and any other statement is unkind, unjust and untrue." A Coaclnng: Trip. BrnLiNGTON. Vt., June l.">. — A pro longed and enjoyable coaching trip by a party of New Yorkers and some Canadian friends terminated here. The start was made ten days ago at Greenfield, Mass., with a coach and six horses, the route taken being up the valley of the Connecti cut river, through portions of Massachu setts. New Hampshire and Vermont, cross ing the Green mountains at Mt. Mansfield to Lake Champlain, in all a distance of two hundred and fifty miles. The trip was organized by the Dwight and Wiman club association, of friends who have for twenty years spent their vacations to gether. The party includes from New York Messrs. J. Kimball, Erastus Wiman, Theodore Leeds and W. P. Raynor, as also H. P. Dwight, general manager of the Can adian telegraph system. E=r Bad Corn Outlook in Kansas. Leavenwobth, June 15. — The Times will publish to-morrow a valuable report in re lation to the corn crop of central Kansas, which is contrary to the glowing reports which have been put in circulation. It shows only a partially satisfactory state of affairs, the acreage not being so large or crop so advanced as previously reported. The farmers in the region mentioned started out to mike a large crop, but met with a serious obstacle in defective seed, which necessitated re-planting a large breadth of the country, the first plant fail ing of making a good stand. Every farmer knows what this means. Since then, rain has succeeded rain, until to-day there are hundreds of fields that have only received one plowing and some barely that, and meanwhile the weeds have thickened and the hoe had to be resorted to on the bottom lands. This is slow work and gives a small yield. This being the case in many localities, there can be no question of diminished crops. In five counties over which our correspon dent passed this is the condition of things and it is believed the same condition exists in other counties. While the indications point to fair crops, not over half a yield is really assured unless we have a late fall, so as to give the planting time to mature. Looking Like Another Strike. Pittsbubo, June 15. — The trade tribunal appointed to settle the wages of the rail road coal miners met this afternoon, but did not transact any business, as Ebenezer Oliver, one of the miners' representatives, who claims he was discharged on account of his connection with the tribunal, de clined to serve longer. The vacancy will be filled hy the court to-morrow, and the miners' officers are still hopeful of a set tlement. Others think Oliver's resigna tion is a sign of trouble and believe another strike will be inaugurated. AMUSEMENTS. OPERA HOUSE. TONY PASTOR'S OWN And ORIGINAL Company. A GRAND SUCCESS.
