PROVISIONS UTTERLY UNSTABLE. A Weak and Spiritless Day's Trading Among Wall Street Speculators, CHICAGO. I Special Teleeram to the Globe. 1 Chicago, June 28 . — The markets were the ''sickest" to-day they have yet been tince the trouble began. Everything was demoralized. Pork dropped to $15.72^ lard to £.), wheat to 98}£c and corn to 52 l^c. The bears hammered vigorously, and had several things in their favor. There were rumors of all sorts of disaster flying. It was said several houses had failed, all of which grew out of the sus pension of H. O. Kenyon &, Co.. a firm doing a small business, and whose liabili ties are not over $40,000. The unfavora ble showing made by M. S. Nichols & Co. also contributed to the feeling of mis trust. Seymour, Hunt ft Co. sold great blocks of corn, seemingly determined to force a worse break, which would, no doubt have occurred had not N. B. Ream bought equally heavily, which fact induced many shorts to think it was a good time to cover. Warren and others were selling provisions freely, while the Chicago Packing com pany and Cudahy were covering short sales. Fowler bought a great deal of lard, and Armour's brokers were again large buyers. These were about the only lead ing houses which were doing much to sus tain the markets, the other demand being almost entirely from the crowd of shorts, who are liable to sell again any moment. Lower prices look probable. At times to day matters appeared decidedly panicky, but a better feeling prevailed at the close. Lower values in all staples are now freely predicted. The firm which failed to-day held some long wheat, but the cause of the suspension was the drop in provisions, and can be laid to the McGeoch collapse. The house of H. O. Kenyon & Co. has had a checkered career. In former years it was one of the strongest firms in the country, but it was drawn under in the big wheat failure two years ago. The creditors closed it up, but John Sinclair, who had been a book-keeper, secured certain fran chises and continued the business until a few weeks ago, when the oid firm complet ed its settlements and resumed, taking in Mr. Sinclair as a partner. It had not gain ed much strength, but was not carrying very heavy deals. The wheat pit on the boari was the scene of a good deal of excitement to-day. There wa3 a large business transacted in the mar ket, and the feeling decidedly unsettled and prices s-;i:!ere:l a large decline. ThB market opened from l^rl^c lower. declined an additional 1 ., 'lo for the various future?, then rallied about •; 5 , ; c under a good demand, but ' the market again became weak, and then prices declined to the inside range, which wp.s2".;C lower for July, l >: . ; c lower for I August, and 2££c lower for September than on 'change ye^erday. Later it again ruled stronger, advancing about lj^£@ l;\je, fluctuated and finally closed about IJ4 @ l^ac lower for the various futures than yester day. The decline was attributed to a gen erally uneasy feeling which prevailed among operators, and increased somewhat by another suspension. The weakness in duced parties to call heavily for mar gins, which necessitated some dealers to place considerable "long" wheat on the market, and this also had a depressing influence. The receipts continue fair and crop advices favorable. Foreign market advices we?e unfavorable. July touched 99c at one time, and August $I.OlJ£, closing at $1.00^7g 1.02^, respectively, but on call another bear raid forced prices down }+&, J oC again, and July closed the day worth '.»:t T ;; c. A million and a quarter bushels sold on the call. There were sizty-eight cars of wheet received here to-day, and 81,83G bushels shipped out. The corn market was aeti-e at lower i prices. The speculative offerings were ] liberal, and considerable "long" corn was ! thrown upon the market. The weakness | was attributed largely to the decline in wheat, and was more or less affected by the same induences that governed the course of the wheat market. Receipts were large and foreign advices ! unfavorable. Shippers bought fairly, and the speculative demand was mainly from shorts. The market opened ?|c lower, ad vanced is® then declined about lc rallied %Q%C, and closed just about lower than closing figures yesterday. The arrivals were 355 cars, the shipments 306, -000 bushels and the charters 160,000 bushels. Oats shared in the general weakness. Cash and the near futures ranged :li« I 1I 1 (jo below the closing quotations of yeterdaj . The offerings were not heavy at all, bat the demand from all sources was exoeeingly limited and the decline in leading mar kets exerted |a very ' weak feeling. The deferred futures were also affected and the decline for these amounted to l / 2 c, sample lots were*slaw and weak. There was some demand, but it was very limited. Up to near the olose of the session the market was dull and trade was dragging at lower prices. Finally, however, r the demand pick ed up considerably, the tone of the market improved, and prices reacted ]_j'c for de ferred futures and J£o for near deliveries over inside quotations, the larger deliver ies closing about the same as yesterday, but June and July closed .li&f'ge lower. Rye declined about p^c, at which reduc tion there was a fair demand from shorts An active speculative business was transacted in the market for hog product, but the feeling was greatly unsettled and prices suffered a further reduction. There appeared to be increased pressure to sell early in the day, due in a measure to the weakness in the hog market and the con tinued unfavorable advices from foreign markets, and prices receded materially and quite rapidly on all the leading de scriptions. When the outside figures were reached the shorts oommenced buying and during the latter portion of the session on 'change the competition for the offerings were brisk, resulting in the recov ery of the greater portion of the decline previously submitted, and the market closed with considerable steadiness. The shipping inquiry was moderate, but the greater part of the trading was conducted in a quiet way. Receipts of product were fair and shipments quite liberal, especial ly ot meats and lard. Liverpool dispatches showed a further redaction of Is on lard and 6d on bacon, and advices from Eastern and depending markets indicated an easier feeling, with prices favoring buyers. The market for mess pork was greatly unset tied and prices irregular. The offerings were large, mainly on local account, while the demand was moderate, especially during the early part of the se-sion. At the open ing the market was weak and prices 10 (a l">c lower, and this was followed with slight rluctuations by a further reduction of 35@ 40c Later the feeling was firmer, and prices reached!'.") '7 30c and closed steady. On the call prices were again off. losing fully 10c. and closing 25@33c under yesterday's call values. Considerable activity was not iceable in the lard market to-day, offerings for future delievery being liberal. The feeling was easy during the early part of the day, and prices ruled weak, opening fw 10c per 100 pounds below the closing figures of yesterday ana further declined 10 n l'2}4c per 100 pounds. During the latter part of the session a stronger feeling was devel oped and the decline was recovered and ruled comparatively steady to the close. The shipments continue liberal, about 9,000 tierces being forwarded within the past twenty -four hours Shipping demand moderate. Cash in fair request and sold $9. 03 @ $9.10, but 5c of the recovery was again lost in the afternoon, and the close is 10@lf>o under yesterday. Some 20,000 hogs were received at the stock yardf daring the past twenty-four hoars and are selling fully 15c leas than on Wednesday. It was to-day voted there should be no session of the board of trade either Jnly 4, or 5. NEW lORK. I Special Telegram to the Globe. ] New Yobk, June 28. — The stock market opened with a fair amount of animation and rather a better feeling. The coal properties advanced Delaware & Lacka wanna, and Reading showing considerable strength. Pullman Palace was the favor ite. Opening at 131 it soon touched 132 U. After these spurts stocks became dull and prices yielded. The serious decline in grain and provisions a. rain influenced Wall street, and reports o' failures were circulated. These run?or<= may assist the bears fora time until matters look brighter, but eventually the roa l - will reap a har vest in the way of increased transporta tion. Rumors that Delaware &. Lacka wanna was cutting rates on Buffalo business were circulated, but had little eCect. The earnings of the Northern Pacific during the first twenty-six days of the present month show a decrease of $26,000. The stock remains very steady. New York Central rallied to 120 during the after noon. The short interest ;.n; .n it increases. The closing prices were in many instances the highest for the day. Denver and the coal stocks were particularly active. The tone was decidedly strong at the last, and had a better appearance throughout than for several days past. There is an im pressiou in the room that the Vanderbilt party has been selling a good deal of stock through orders. The market is so limited that transactions are traced much more easily than thpy were a few years ago. This makes large traders a very important element, inasmuch as it is always uncertain whether their sales or purchases are for their own account or for others.' A broker of bearish proclivities said thi* afternoon: "If the truth was known I think you will find that Mr. Mor gan, Mr. Smith and W. K. Vanderbilt are disposing of stock through traders. Some of the traders are borrowing a good many stocks. This is precisely what would be done if they were selling long stock for in side accounts, -vid deliveries by the real sellers would almost surely be found out. I think the railroad war is being put off to allow more stock to be sold, and if it were not for certain holdings of long stock I think you would have 56en the war begun before this." .■Stopping Pauper Immijrmtion. New York, June 28. — The commission ers of immigration to-day resolved that all immigrants to this port from the alms houses or elemosynary institutions of foreign countries will be reported to the collector of the port, as unable to take care of himself or herself without becom ing public charge, unless authentic evi dence to the contrary is produced, and that the collector be asked to detain in the stream vessels carrying immigrants for a time sufficient to permit a thorough examination by the inspector. An officer of the Anchor line, to which the Furnessia belongs, said no official communication had yet been received from the immigra tion commissioners and that they would not take any passengers baok wittout pay, unless properly proven that they are likely to become public charges.

The Woman In th» Case Interviewed— She U as lteautifcl as a Peri, and Denies that There Was Anything Wrong— Algernon Was Simply an Intimate Friend of the Family and Visited her as Such. i Special Telegram to th^ Globe. 1 Chicago, June 1 2S. — The racy scandal reported from Milwaukee involving a young Englishman named Sartori?, sup posed to be identified by marriage with a prominent American family, and Mrs. Ba3h, a young English lady, who was rep resented as a living poem of marvelous beauty of face and form in the shape of a blonde widow, possesses additional interest from the fact that the lady in question is at this time in Chicago stopping at Tre mont house. The story reflecting very seriously a> it did upon her character as well as that of Mr. Sartoris, as it was deemed well to ascertain what she had to say as to the imputations, a reporter therefore wont to the Tremont house and sent up his card. An unexpected answer was returned that Mrs. B. could be seen in parlor P. the reporter ascended. The most liberal imagination on the basis of charms claimed for her could not form anything like a near or just estimate of her beauty. Tall and willowy, dressed in tightly fitting and tasty costume of dark plaid, she displayed a form of extraordin ary symmetery. Her features are molded after the classic, with a slight tendency to embonpoint. Her hair is very iight and trained in becoming wave lets, while her eyes are large and of liquid blue. She was indeed a pricture of womanly beauty. "You have no donbt come to a?k me about that horrible story from Milwaukee," she be gan before an opportunity was given to make known hia mission. "Oh, how could you be so cruel as to publish such a thing? lam so sorry for Mr. Sartoris that his name should be used in such a manner, and lam sure my husband will go wild." I have been married three years. My hus band' g name is Algernon Benton Bash, and when I married him he was an Eng lish gentleman of wealth, bat unfortunate ly he lias lately met with reverses, and he is now only in very moderate circumstances. Bat how terrible it is to be published in the newspapers. Oh what a terrible story they have sent from Milwaukee." An involuntary tremor agitated her frame for a moment, but she overcame the feeling of revulsion which a remembrance of all the bad things said about her seemed to cause and continued: '•It is as false as anything can be. Cer tainly the Mr. Sartoris who visited me in Milwaukee is Mr. Algernon Sartoris who married Miss Grant. My husband and I met him in London. He and Mr. Bush were members of the Grarick club, and I was intimately acquainted with both he and Mrs. Sartoris. How absurd to impute any wrong motives to Mr. S. in vteiting me. You will, Ido hope, contradict that vicious libel, won't you, please, for Mr. Sartoris' sake, at least? lam the daugh ter of Wilton G. Greene of New York, aad wlien I was sixteen years old I went to Lon don. There I met Mr. Bush, and a year later. I married him. He is sixty-five years old and lam now twenty-one. I met Mr. and Mrs. Stirtoris shortly after my mar riage. We became .juite intimate, and this spring Mr. Bush and I decided to come to America. He wished to invest some money in a veniure that would pay. We sailed from Liverpool, arriving in New York about the (Uh or 7th of April. Mr. Algernon Sartoris and his brother in-law, Mr. Jesse Grant, sailed on the same steamer, and with my husband, my brother Willie and myself, we made quite a merry party. You know Mr. Sartoris has lumber interests at Green Bay, and it was partly through his repre sentations that Mr. Bush was prevailed upon to come west. We remained in New York only about a week, and as Mr. B. had some matters to attend there he stayed over while Willie, Mr. Sartoris and I came here. We had previously agreed to settle in Milwaukee. Mr. B. had selected Green Bay because Mr. Sartoris was located there, and we all agreed that Milwaukee wDuld be convenient for Mr. Bush and Mr. Sartoris, and that Mr. Bush conld come home a great deal and Mr. Sartoris could visit us often. Wo reached Chicago about the lf»th of April, and we all stop ped at the Tremont. Mr. Sartoris left his wife in Eri^Nnd. At Milwaukee we went to the Plauiduton, and there we remained until I was joined by my husband, when we took a house and furnished it. My husband was with me after that all the time with the exception of the time he spent at Green Bay attending to the fishe ries. They proved unsuccessful aad he lost a great deal of money. Mr. Sartoris came every Saturday night and remained until Monday. luy husband was there all the while,and I am sure only vicious persons could put a bad interpretation upon that. People in England visit friends in that way and nothing is ever thought of it. Mr. Sartoris only visited us as a friend, and it is unnecessary for me to say there was not the slightest thing that could war rant the horrid stories circulated about us. I hope Mr. Sartoris will not see it." '•But what caused you to leave Milwau kee so suddenly ?" "Because Mr. Bash and I intend to re turn, to England at once. He is at present at Sturgeon Bay, bat will be here Friday with my brother, who is visiting Mr. Sarto ris, Who is himself at Green Bay. I had not seen Mr. Sartoris for a week prior to leaving Milwaukee." "Was not your departure capable of being construed as a flight?" "I do not know," she replied, "what people choose to call it, I had bought the furniture in my house on credit with the exception of the parlor suit, which I paid cash for. When my husband lost money which he complained he was cheated oat of by Americans, who were associated with him, we found we could not settle for it, and I determined to leave Milwaukee and come to Chicago and remain till my hus band joined me, when we will sail directly for England. Many of the statements from Milwaukee are entirely wrong. As to my parlor set," ehe said, resuming the conversation on the subject of her furniture, "I brought it to Chicngo with me and it is now at the Northwestern depot. Did they have any right to attach the articles I left with my lady friend in Milwaukee? They were carpets I paid for with my own money . *' It was understood on very good authority that Mrs. Bush received a dispatch las: night from Sartoris stating he wonld be here to-day. At the same time Mr. Sartoris denies in an interview that he knows any thing about her or her affaire. Acting under instructions from his clients, Mr. Remy, of Flower, Remy Jt Gregory, attorneys, levied, as already stated, upon the effects of Mrs . Bash at the Northwestern depot yesterday while they were in transit. Mr. Remy said he did not know anything of the case except in ho far as h< had been instructed to levy upon the furniture. The claims were for furniture bills owed to Fox Bros, and the Cream City Furniture company, of Milwaukee, aggregating $4uo. [Special Telegra a to the Globe.] Milwaukee, Jun«* 28. — Offioer Mooney who is stationed at the Northwestern depot informed the Globe reporter to-day tha t he had seen the Englishman Algernon Sartoris ia company with Mrs. Bush on several occasions. The couplejarrived in the city together about two months ago, with a large lot of baggage. The trunks were all marked "Sartoris." Tae officer pro nounces the gentleman as being decidedly English in appearance aud speech. He looked like a swell, v/as dressed in the height of fashion, and wore a light mus tache and side whiskers of incipient growth. He politely requested the officer to produce him a ''baggage van," and was very attentive to the lady. This morning a gentlemen who had become acquainted with Mrs. Bush said she was very beautiful, and appeared a lady of talent aad taste. In conversation she said she was a native of St. Louis, bat had married a wealthy Englishman 'I when quite young. They went to England to live, and after a while her husband died, leaving her plenty of money. She said she had a young brother or rather a brother-in-law a young Englishman, whom she lived with. She not care to return to St. Louis to live, because she had a great many admirers there and they twitted her unmercifully about marrying such an old man, as her husband was old enough to be her father. Mr. Sartoris knew her brother in England, an I he was very much attached to him. They were to gether a good deal of the time on Satoris' place at Green Bay, and when Sartoris came to the city he was of course the guest of Mrs. Bush and her brother. The talk ative Mrs. B. said Sartoris had told her he did not (ret along very well with his wife; that they were not happily married. Mrs. Sartoris is now living at Long Branch, but spends a great deal of her time at her father's home in New York. Mrs. Bash in sisted upon the gentleman casing at her home on Seventeenth street and offered to take him oat riding daily if he cared to go. She said she had just purchased a $900 team and it was at the gentleman's dis posal. She seemed I o be very fond of mnsic and literature and appeared to be highly cultivated. There appeared to be nothing wrong between Mrs. B. and Nellie Grant's husband. MUST PA.I TAX. The Opioaiouof the Ohio Supreme Court Declaring; the Scott Liquor Law Constitu tional. Columbus, June 28 . —The supreme court to-day gave out its opinion in over 5,000 words on the Scott ii or tax law. holding it valid and constitutional, except the second section, wherein it is held not to apply to leases executed prior to the pass age of the act, as no contracts made can be violated. Lease.-, however, entered into subsequent to the passage of the law came within its purview the snm« °r rentals, wherein the collection or uio tax. is a first lien on the premises, holding that subject to freehold as provided by statute. When made against -the tenant for carrying on business upon the premises leased prior to the passage of the statute, it would be an unwarrantable interference with private property, subjecting one man's property to the payment of another's debts. If this infirmity can be taken ont of the statute by applying it only to cases arising under leases exe cuted after the passage of the statute, it is our duty to so construe it. Every presump tion must be taken in favor of the validity of the statutes. It will be presumed that the legislative intent was to apply the statute to subsequent leases only. If necessary to preserve it from constitutional objection, it will never be presumed that the legislature intended to pass an uncon stitutional law. The opinion goes into a lengthy argument, showing the difference between the Scott law and the Pond law, and that the latter, with its bond feature, implied licenses which is constitutionally prohibited. That the Scott law differs fundamentally on thi ; ground, and is in no sense a license according to the best au thorities on the definition of license. The point is made that declaring one section partially null and void does not destroy the validity of the law as a whole and its legality is not thereby affected. O'Key dissents, and Johnson, Mcllvain, Doyle and Upson concur. Last year the motion was four to one the other waj. l'enn>\ I\ ;mia Legislation. Haekisbcrg, June 2S. — Among the bills approved by the governor were those making appropriation for the western penitentiary, and extending the time for closing the soldier's orphans schools to 1889. In the senate a resolution for the adjournment of the extra session of the legislature on July '_' passed providing the work called for was then completed. In the house a bill reported atSrmatively making an appropriation of $108,915 for expenses of the extra session which would bring the session to July. Mechanics, laborers and others will find it greatly to their interest to attend the auction sale of^thirty lot 3 adjacent to the Manitoba shops and within a half block of Rice street. Competitive Examinations. Detboit, Mich., June 28. — Judge Thomas concluded the civil service exam inations here to day and goes to Port Huron. Nine applicants for custom house positions appeared to-day. Yesterday's applicants for postoffioers passed at 85 per cent., twenty higher than the mini mum prescribed by the rules, one young lady scoring 99 .

Washington, June 28. — In the Hill in vestigation to-day Coleman called for all vouchers for money paid Geo. L. Damon since August, 1876, for iron safe 3or fire proof shutters; also for all vouchers for money paid Bartlett, Robbins <fc Co., or Hayward, Kobbins & Co., the present firm, for work done or materials furnished by them to the government since August, 187(1. Objection was made by Thomas that such wholesale exposure of the busi ness of Bartlett, Robins <fc Co. would be unfair to the present firm, in that it would disclose their business to those who may be playing against them. Coleman — How can that be when they have a monopoly of the business? A protracted argument ensued daring which counsel for the prosecution charged that Bartlett, Robbins & Co. had secured nearly all the contracts for tiling since the advent of Hill as supervising archi tect and had been enabled to do so through corrupt influence in architect's office although they were not lowest bid ders. Thomas (excitedly)— lf the gentleman charges that Bartlett, Robbins & Co. cor ruptly obtained dbntracts, I denounce it as a slander. Coleman — Let us see the documents showing the amounts of money wiii^h these gentlemen have received and we will be able to tell something about it. 'ihe committee after consultation ruled that counsel should be permitted to inspect all papers includ ed in his call and should submit them to the committee. Gen. Stinemetz then took the stand. la 1871 witness held the position of assistant superintendent of construction in the New York postoffic9, and had in charge all the work. Bartlett, Robbins & Co. had con tracts for the iron work, stairs, grating, il luminated tiling, etc. They furnished the material under the immediate direction of the witness. Bills rendered by Bartlett, Robbins it Co. were then put in evidence. Witness read over several items of charges for extra work, and testified that one pair of stairs for which Bartlett, Robbins & Co. charged $968 were never pat into the building, and that their bills were for things which he (Steinmetz) never gave any orders. At this point a number of the vouchers which had been called for by the prosecution were brought in and upon the suggestion of Alexander, the committee adjourned for the purpose of affording witnesses an opportunity to examine pa per s.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^H wasson's sentence. The official order was to-day issued by Adjutant General Drum, promulgating the findings of the court martial and announc ing President Arthur's confirmation of the sentence in the case of paymaster James R. Wasson, and continuing as follows: By the direction of the secretary of war sen tence in the case of Major James R . Was sod, paymaster of the United States army, will take effect July 3, 1883, from which date he will cease to be an officer in the army. The Kansas state penitentiary at Lansing is designated as the place for the execution of so much of the sentence as relates to confinement, where the prisoner will be sent under direction. LAND DECISIONS. The secretary of the interior has decided that the laud selected under the laws of the south for university purposes,are effective, and valid as to location, but refuses to anticipate the power in the future to en dow a contemplated university, holding the question is political rather than ex ecutiva. The secretary hag decided to grant t'.ie request of a number of citizen of Califor nia looking to a continuance brought to recover lands in Column county, Cal.,from the Central Pacific railroad.
