New Yobk, July 2. — The three Demo
cratic factions of New York are employ
ing their summer months in fixing up
their forces and preparing for a political
campaign in the fall that, from present
appearances, is not likely to be the most
harmonious. Tammany, Irving hall and
the county Democracy are each strength
ening themselves in every possible direc
tion and preparing for war . For at least
two years Tammany has been suffering
from internal dissentions. The organiza
has been divided with Mr. Kelly on one
side and the '"big four' on the other. The
death of Alderman William Saver broke
the big four" combination. Senator
Grady has fallen into the vacant place,
and with Sachem Kearney. Police Com
missioner "Sid Nichols" and Gen. Spinola,
has assumed to manage the affairs of Tam
many. The ambition of the quartet ha*
been Jto control them exclusively, with
out appearing to act in opposition to their
honored leader. The opposition to Kelly
has never been open, and.no definite esti
mate of its strength has ever been fur
nished. This opposition has at length
succumbed and Tammany is once more
united. Mr. Cleveland is no longer on the
same friendly terms with Mr. Dan. Man
ning. At no distant day the executive
chamber will be rid entirely of Mr. Man
ning and whatever represents him . Col.
Dan. S. Lamont, who is the confidential
agent of Mr. Manning, will resign his office
of private secretary to the governor.
Lively Earthquake Experiences in South
America— Villages Destroyed, Courses of

Panama, June 23. — The Star and Herald
says: The volcano of Ometepe, Lake
Nicaragua, is in eruption. When the
crater first broke forth people fled to the
churches, fearing the whole island would
be destroyed. The valley of the Atnats in
the state of Cauca, continues the centre of
volcanic activity. At Rio Sucio, forty
miles from the Atlantic, the earth '•
opened in many places, throwing out
very fine sand in a heated state, whilst a
subterranean noise was heard resembling
that made by boiling water. At Turbo, on
the Guano Uraba, the earth opened and
water issued, flooding the. streets to the !
depth of two feet. Many houses were
shaken down. The small villages of Bujoco
and Nicurio were completely engulphed. i
The mouth of the river Leon, which emp- '
tied into the Atlantic, has completely
closed up. and all over the district the
movement of the earth is so continuous
the inhabitants are emigrating. A slight
earthquake was felt at A'ompos, on the
river Magdalen.
New National Party.
Chicago, July 3. — Delegates to the na
tional convention of anti-monopolists to
be held in this city to-morrow are begin
ning to arrive and there now promises to
be a large representation from all the
northern and western states. There are
many graenbackers in attendance, but the
general impression is that the great fight
will be on the tariff question, delegates
from the eastern states generally advocat
ing protection and western delegates free
trade. While it i 3 confidently asserted by
delegates a platform for a new na
tional party will be adopted, it is evident
many of those attending hold widely di
verging views on various questions, and it
remains for the actual proceedings of the
convention to determine what the propos
ed new party will advocate, and with what
unanimity those attending as delegates
will subscribe to the views embodied in
the platform.

A. Successful Effort to Hold Up Corn
Helps Other Grains,
With Lively Dealing in the Leading
And Shipments am! Receipts as Com*
pared with Last Year.
And General Confidence Felt in an
Early Revival.
[Special Telegram to the Globe. )
Chicago, July 3. — The weakness in grain
developed yesterday afternoon was re
newed this morning at the opening, prices
then being the lowest yet reached this
year. Offerings were very liberal owin^
to exhausted margin.-, and it seemed possi
ble that the tendency would be still down
ward, but some strong parties commenced
buying corn at the reduced prices which
tended to steady all grains. The same
parties were moderate buyers of wheat, and
there was a reaction all round, wheat closing
fomewhat below where it did on the call
yesterday and corn a trifle better.
Chicago elevators begin the month con
taining 6,079.401 bushels of wheat, 2,631.
390 bushel corn, 713,544 bushels oats, 616,-.
721 bushels rye and 28,035 bushels barley,
making a grand total of 10,069,091 bush
els against 10 r 427,887 bushels a week ago,
and 3,698,001 bushels at this period last
year, while the stock of flour in Chicago
is 56,664 barrels against 62,900 barrels a
month ago and 60,055 barrels at this
period last year. Milwaukee warehouses
are stored with 1,925,128 of wheat, 195,566
bushels corn, 37,834 bushels oats, 50,552
bushels rye, and 198,097 bushels barley.
The stock of provisions in
Chicago include 204,350 barrels pork,
193,808 barrels being winter paoked, 38,
--572,311 pounds of short rib middles and
109,406 tierces of prime steam contract
lard. N. K. Fairbanks <fe Co. report the
stock of lard in this oountry at 186,419
tierces, of which 163,000 are contract. The
stock one year ago was 208,730 tierces, of
which 175,621 were contract. The stock of
lard in Europe and in transit is reported
at 78,300 tierces, against 90,200 at this
time last year.
July wheat sold at 97j^a this morning
and August at 99% c. Very little business
was done in the former futures except in
the way of transfer to the latter at 2}£{i
'1 'jjC discount. Generally the market was
active, and a large amount of business was
i trausacted, especially during the early part
I of the session of the board. Opening I*4 fi
l l o'c lower than at 1 o'clock Monday, with
very liberal offerings, the shorts began to
buy freely, and prices advanced 1- J^@l^c
I above inside figures, receded a trifle, but
attain rallied, and closed firm J^g >^c low
er than on 'change yesterday for August
and September and %c lower fcr October.
Last sales of July were at 98<j£& At least
a half million bushels of No. 2 wheat
will be shipped out of here
by Friday, and this may cause strong mar
kets after the recess, the large stock before
being the great bugbear which the bears
have used to the best advantage. Fifty
one cars were received to-day. 6,000 bushels
reported shipped by rail, and vessel room
eugaged to move 115,000 bushels.
The trading in corn was large, both on
speculative and shipping account, with the
bulk of the speculative business transacted
early in the day. Values at the opening
were %Q%e lower than at the close of the
call yesterday, but under a sharp demand
from parties who wished to even up
to their trades before the brief vacation
prices were advanced l^iai^c. At this
advance the speculative demand slack
f ened, and a reaction of about }4c occur
red, followed by another rally. The close
was 1 [email protected];, 1 4C better than on 'change yes
terday. The charters there were for half
a million bushels, the largest of the sea
son. Four hundred and thirty-four cars
were received and 183,000 hushels shipped
by rail. Had It not been for the shorts
becoming buyers to-day, it is probable the
large receipts, fine weather, and free
! offerings of the bears would have forced
prices lower. At first the crowd was
disposed to fill the demand of the
I buyers, but finding their wants hard to
supply they commenced to get very ner
vous, and made considerable effort to get
back what they had sold.
The market was steady for cash oat.-.
The receipts were smaller and there were
light offerings. Seventy-two cars were re
ceived. Trading on the speculative market
was moderate early but there was little
doing during latter part ©f the session. At
opening there were lew buyers, weak feel
ing prevailed, and prices ranged much
lower, but when the light receipts were
posted there was a quick substantial
improvement, especially 'fan July, which
ranged above the closing quotations of yes
terday, and for the deferred futures there
was a pastial reation.
Rye opened l%@2c lower than it closed
on the board yesterday, but the major part
of this decline occurred on late call yes
terday. There was an absence of orders,
and the downward tendency wasalso caused
by the unfavorable influence which
a lower market for other cereals exerted.
There were no offerings of barley, and,
owing to extreme hot weather, maltsters
have withdrawn from the market alto
Oaly a moderate business) was trans
acted in the market for hog products, ye
the feeling was somewhat unsettled and
prices irregular and lower. The market
opened easier and under the influence of
moderate inquiry prices were gradually
advanced to the outside range. Later a
weaker feeling was manifested and the
price receded again on all the leading de
criptions and closed steady. Shipping de
mand fair. Foreign adyices unfavorable
and bacon ruled 6d lower. Eastern mark
ets without material e&ange. The receipts
of the products were fair and shipments
quite liberal of all kinds. The
stocks on hand are quite lar o> 1 t
25,000.000 pounds in the aggregate larger
than reported one year ago, which exceed
ed the estimates of the trade and tended
to depress prices. For a 6hort time there
seemed to be a better speculative demand
and Kirkwood and others tried their best
to obtain an advance. On the morning
call there was also a brisk inquiry but that
was the last of it for up stairs the crowd
began selling and rattled prices severely.
The approaching holidays probably influ
enced the slight recovery later more than
anything else.
The offerings of mes3 pork were fair
and the inquiry moderately active. The
market opened rather lame at [email protected] de
cline, and a further reduction of [email protected]
was temporarily submitted to. About the
I middle of the session the market was

[Sp?cial Telegram to the Globe. J
New Yobk, July 3. — There has been but
i little doing in Wall 6treet to-day. During
the morning Northern Pacific preferred
became somewhat active and sold off a
trifle. On the other hand, Western Union
telegraph regained the loss of yesterday,
selling up to 88}£. The coal stocks were
all firmer and look like going higher.
There were some sales of Pullman Palace
at 132^ a slight improvement over last
evening's figures. The changes in the
balance of the list were trifling,
and during the last hoar there was
hardly any business transacted. The
market displays a good deal of strength
notwithstanding the extreme dullness and
1 we are inclined to the belief that later in
the month we shall be treated to more
activity and that prices of good stocks
will be higher.
Concerning Judge Freeman's decision
not to dissolve the injunction on Western
Union. Mr. Gould's friends say that he
will pay the dividend as he has paid the
last two dividends. They add that the
question must in the end be decided in
the Western Union's favor. There
i was also some talk about a war of
: telegraph rates. iae friends of the
j Western Union say that the Western
j Union company will not be allowed to
j enter into any cutting of rates, but that
the Mutual Union will reduce rates wher
ever the Baltimore, <fc Ohio or the Postal
! company extend their lines, and will
j make such low rates that these comp anies
cannot be operated except at heavy loss.
The announcement that Chicago & At
lantic secured 19 per cent, of the grain,
■ ilour and provisions out of Chicago last
week caused general surprise and comment.
It was stoutly alleged that no new road
could have secured such a balance of busi
ness without active cutting of rates.
Officers of the company, denied, however,
I that any cut had been made. They claimed
i that the volume of business was simply
I the result of the popularity of the new
j line. There has been, they said, no delay
in forwarding and people like to do busi
ness with the road.
j In the receipts of grain at New York to
i day, Erie brought a much larger number
j of cars than New York Central. This, of
j course, amounts to nothing for a single
j day, but should Erie continue to bring
I more grain than New York Central it
j would be an occasion for uneasiness for
j people long of Trunk Line stocks.
A Boston despatch reports an estimated
decrease in Union Pacific earnings for June
of $132,000, as compared with June last
! year. The actnal earnings for May will
be ready for publication in a few days,
■ and will, it is alleged, make a
j better showing than the estimate for the
month. There has been a rumor
of a heavy attack to be made on Union
Pacific for the purpose of covering shorts
put out in vicinity of 95. It is very cer
tain there is a large short interest in the
stock and one which will not take a loss
if boldness and skill can secure a profit.

The Steamship i> ,ihnr in Launching: l'}>
set anil Swamped- Fifty to One
Hundred Persons Carried Down With
the Boat and Drowned— Some of the Bod
ies Recovered— Other Casualties.
London, 3 p. m., July 3. — Intelligence
just reached here of a terrible calamity
during the launching of the steamship
Daphne at Glasgow to-day. While being
launched she fell over on her side and pre
cipitated a number of people into the
water. According to dispatches thus far
received sixty persons were drowned.
London, July 3, 3:30 p. m. Further par
ticulars of the calamity at Glasgow state
that the Daphne, which was constructed
for coast trading, is a vessel of 500 tons
burden. Two hundred workmen were
on board when she capsized. The
accident occurred in the 'middle of the
river Clyde, after launching. It is not
exactly known how many persons were
drowned, but it is feared th 3 number will
reach over a hundred.
London, July 3 — The Daphnel eft the
ways at a very fast rate and whan she
gained the water she rolled [from side to
side. Persons on board fearing that she
would capsize ran to and fro. The vessel
finally reeled over and nearly disappear
ed beneath the water. Those who had
maintained a position on that portion of
the steamer which was not submerged did
their utmost to save those who were in the
water. At the same time a boat was
heavily pulled to assist in the work
of rescuing the unfortunate people and
succeeded in saving quite a number. II is
known, however, that there were fifty per
sons below in the Daphne when the vessel
went over, and they must all have been
drowned. Crowds of grief stricken rela
tives of the victims nocked to the scene of
the calamity. Another dispatch from Glas
gow says the cause of her capsizing was
that she had too much top weight. The
steamers are dragging the water for the
bodies of the victims. Several of the peo
ple who were taken from the water alive
were so exhausted that it was necessary to
drive them to the infirmary. The stean?er
is now under water, with the fifty bodies
before mentioned of board of her.
London, July 3. — The Daphne
turned upside down before she sank. An
eye witness saw a great number of men
struggling in the water and shrieking for
help. Many were braised and covered
with blood, having been struck by debris.
Accounts of the number of persons on
board and the number of the lost continue
to vary widely . Several bodies have been
found at the foot of the ways. Diver 3 are
searching for more bodies.
Fifty-two names are published as those
of the missing persons. As visitors were
admitted to view the launch it is believed
some of them whose names are unknown
are among the missing. Many of the dead
bodies are visible through the port holes
of the ship. It was rapid
ebb tide and it is feared
many bodies were carried to sea.
There was a large number of boys
on board. The foreman joiner, who
had charge of twenty workmen, Bays he
has seen only three of his men since the
accident. The passage by the 6unken
ship is unimpeded for small vessels, but
dangerous for large Atlantic steamers.
A number of the men at the ship yard
on the opposite 6ide of the river, who wit
nessed the disaster, but who were unable
to render any assistance at the time, say
the whole occupied about three minutes.
They immediately set to work to help the
people struggling in the water. They say
some of the men on the Daphne jumped
overboard and others were thrown over
board and that a quantity
of loose fittings fell from the deck and
crushed many of the unfortunates strug
gling in the water. A number of swim
mers were visible directly after the ship
capsized, but many of them we*-e after
ward seen to sink . Of six men olinging
together, four endeavored to climb upon
the steamer as she was sinking, but were
forced to desist by the rush of steam from
a port hole. Some climbed upon the deck
before the ship was submerged. Accord
ing to the statements of witnesses and
survivors of the disaster, the vessel left
the slip to rapidly causing her stern,
which entered firet to sink deeply
in the water. She was then caught
by the strove current of the river,by which,
as well a^ by her top weight, she was
caused to heel over so far tnat the water
entered her port?. The last report from
the scene of disaster states that seven bod
ies had been identifies.
London, July 3. — Latest: A diver states
that the companion way of the Daphne
is blocked up by a solid mass of bodies
one on top of another. It appears that
the men who were at work
below when the ship went over
rushed from their work and became
jammed in the passage way. Some of the
bodies still have tools in their hand?. The
diver thinks there are still in the vessel a:
least as many corpses as have already beei:
recovered. Forty-one bodies have been

New Yoke, July 2. — This morning a
young man about twenty-one years of
age, named William Seaman, shot his
sister Fanny, aged twenty-seven, through
the heart, killing her instantly, and then
tired a ball into his own head, which also
proved deadly. Fanny Seaman, whose
father and mother are dead, resided with
the family of Wm. F. Terris, a wealthy
Quaker related to the Seamans. Her
brother William, who was a frequent visi
tor at the house had, it appears, been en
gaged to marry a young lady of this city.
She hearing that insanity had developed
itself in a sister of her betrothed, broke
her engagement with him. Young Seaman
arrived at the house unexpectedly yester
day and entered unseen by a window and
made his way to the sleeping room of his
victim. A report of two pistol shots dis
turbed the household, and when the room
was entered the lifeless bodies of the sister
and brother were discovered.
Pitebßbubg, Va . , Jnfy 3. — About mid

duced his son (Jones') wife's daughter to
follow them, intimating that improper
motives were underlying their action.
Words ensued and Jones seized an old
army musket loaded with buck shot and
fired at Woodson Dunn. The charge en
tered the right groin, passing through the
body and making a wound two inches in
diameter. Dunn can't survive.
Ely, Vt., July 3. — Three hundred qjiners

to demolish the company's property and
cheating great excitement.
