mm iBMAL The Stock Market Returning to Its Usual Condition. A STEADY INCREASE IN VALUES. Oregon and Northern Pacific Leading the Advance. THE ENTIRE LIST GROWING FIRM. A Rather Dull Day in Grain and Pro* visions at Chicago. NEW YORK. 1 Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Nbw Yobk, Aug. 16. — On the stock ex change to-day the market opened very strong in everything but Western Union. In some cases stocks were one point above last night's closing, and the expectation of higher prices was general, but before the end of the first hour it became evident that something affected prices unfavor ably. Western Union began to decline on heavy sales and the rest of the list became dull and passively weak. It was said by some who are pretty close to Gould that he sold Western Union in order to buy other stocks. At all events .Western Union alone showed any considerable de cline, the remainder of the list being quite steady. A first rate authority says that all the talk about any confer ence between Gould and Villard s pure fabrication. There is no business relations between them of any kind. Owing to large withdrawals from the street of Northern Pacific pre ferred the short interest in stock has been made to appear large. The short interest continues large in New York Central and New Jersey Central, It is small in every thing else, although there was some short Belling on the higher prices yesterday and to-day. No action was taken on dividend by the Northern Pacific directors to-day. It is believed by some who are in a position to guess judicially that a dividend will be paid before January first next. After noon the market gained slowly, even Western Union rallying, and closed considerably above last night's closing figures. The outlook is for still further gains. Boody said: "The market for stocks dis plays considerable strength. A feature in the early dealings was a sharp advance on the Northern Pacific. Later Wooerishoffer <fe Co. were credited with selling Western Union telegraph in large amounts, and for a time the feeling was a little feverish. When they finished rallies followed, and there was a good demand for stocks up to the end. The demoralization of late has been so complete that one who prophesies more than a twenty-four hours' advance is looked upon as reckless. As we have had a decline for over ten years a week's improvement ought not to be un reasonable. Jersey Central, though dull, shows that the bears have oversold it, and 1 1-G was paid for its use to-day. New York Central was also in demand. The earnings for the past year, ending June, increased $4*370,000. Before a week elapses rate cutting between this city and and St. Louis will cease. At the last the feeling in Wall street was quite buoyant. Day & Field say the market has been very much quieter to-day, and at times dull. For the first hour the market was firm, assured dividend stocks being in good de mand, Oregon and Northern Pacific sell ing up sharpiy. White was a buyer of St. Paul. Stocks were not in good sup ply, and the other side of the story began to be told. It was easier to sell than to buy. The feature from this time until the close was Western Union. Openinjr at 73)4 it went to 74 and then became very active and sold down with large transac tions to 71J3. This was accompanied by different rumors. It was announced that holders had taken fright on account of Gen. Eckert's peremptory manner to wards the strikers yesterday md another that Gould was gunning for Cornell's Stock. When deliveries on sales which had been made for the past two days by lead ing room bears were made in brand new certificates signed by Mr. Gould and dated to-day, the street were more puzzled than ever. If it was intended to cause the belief that Gould was overloading it was hardly successful and certainly was reckoning upon the brokers being pos sessed of very little acumen. Considerable interest centered on the Northern| Pacifies. Under a strong offering they were feverish and inclined to sell off, pending the de cision of the directors' meeting as soon as it was ascertained that they had adjourned without declaring a dividend both stocks ran up sharply. During the afternoon Wabash was very strong in tone. Kiernan says Texas Pacific is going up, and that Northern Pacific people say they have the backing of the°Rothschilds, who buy every time the stock raided. They snap their fingers at the bears. Denver for the last week in August increased in earn ings $17,700, Union Pacific for fourteen days' decreased $121,000. The market closed strong, especially in Omaha pre ferred, Canadian f Pacific and St. Paul. The Northern Pacific directors adjourned without date. CHICAGO. | Special Telegram to the Globe.] Chicago, Aug. 16. — The day has been a dull and unsatisfactory one. There were no features of special interest. Most everybody expected higher prices in the wheat market because of the strength last night, but nearly every local scalper was long a little for the turn; and as the early buying was mainly on the part of a leading bear house, the scalpers thought it a good time to unload, which they did. Cable and New York advices were of an easier tenor and reoeipts at primary markets larger, and with n® outside buying orders, our market has ruled stagnant all day. It has not been a weak market by any means, al though we have to record nearly a half cent decline, and closes steady at the decline, with no pressure to sell, and but very little disposition to sell more. On the board only a moderate business was transacted, and during most of the session trade was slow. The feeling was tolerably steady, though at times in clined to weakness. The weather contin ues fine in the west, and foreign market advices quoted a strong feeling and better weather. Taken altogether there was nothing to cause any very marked changes. The offerings to sell wheat were not large and the demand only moderate. The receipts were larger, both of spring and winter wheat, and shipments fair. The market opened steady advancing %@ J£c, then declined %q, rallied a trifle, fluctuated and closed about j^@%c lower than closing prices yesterday. Flour was very quiet and prices were unohanged. For corn a moderate speculative and a good shipping demand existed and prices varied but slightly from yesterday's range. The receipts were smaller, 538 cars being inspected into store, against 613 cars yesterday, and market ad vices from ab road continue favorable quoting firm markets. The weather was warm and bright. Prices ruled rather easy within a range of about %o. Early prices declined I4C, then rallied %c, re ceded %c again, then fluctuated and final ly closed %c lower than yesterday . No. 2 in active demand early and sold at 51$£@ -52c, but closed dull at 51^c. In the oats market there was about as good a trade in sample lots as usual, and prices rulei with firmness for all good sound oats, but oats going through the sweat or in any way unsound or musty were dull. On the regular market trading fell off a great deal. There was in fact only a small volume of business done. Specu lative orders were very light, and the con dition of the trade seemed to be such that operators appeared to prefer holding oft and awaiting the development of some thing new. Prices were steady all around and not materially changed. Cash oats were quiet and dull and sold within yesterday's range of prices. No. 2 sold at 26^@26^c, and old sold at 27@27%c. Other grades nominal, and sold altogether by sample. Future deliv eries were quiet and steady. Prices steady and without much change until at the close, when the feeling became weaker^The market closed }jc lower. An active cash business was done in No. 2 rye, and sales were at 61}^c or the out side quotations of yesterday. There was an active shipping demand, and although tho receipts were heavy all consignments were taken. Sample lots also sold well, and were steady with the offerings cem prising" mostly rejected. The futures were firm and higher. August ranged % @lc better than yesterday, September % @lc better and October was lc better. The bar!ey [market was not so much im proved, but a car of No. 2 sold at 59c, %xs advance and a few sales were made for future •delivery at about lc improvement. Notwithstanding this the market is still dull and rather neglected. In the aggregate mere was less business transacted in the market for hog products than the previous days of the week, though considerable activity prevailed at times. The speculative demand was quite active, and the offerings for future delivery mod erately large. The market was somewhat unsettled, but in prices confined within a small range. Foreign advices indicate a steadier feeling ie lard, and quotations were advanced Gd, but bacon was inclined to dullness and short clear sides were quoted 6d lower. The dispatches from the eastern markets showed little change in that quarter. The receipts of hogs were fair, with prices favoring buyer 3. The receipts of products were not large, while the shipments were liberal and in cluded considerable product for foreign markets. The market opened rather weak, and prices ruled easier during the early part of the session . Later, tho demand was more urgent, mainly to fill outside orders, and prices rallied again. About the middle of the session a weaker feeling prevailed and prices receded to the inside range, but toward the close showed more steadiness, and the greater portion of the reduction was recovered. There was a moderate business transacted in the market for mess pork, but almost exclusively on speculative account. The shipping demand was moderate and chiefly in the way of small orders. The offerings for future delivery were quite liberal. The market opened rather tame, and prices declined 10@12}^c, but soon rallied again \^%&. 15c. Later the market weakened and prices gradually declined 15®: 20c, but ral lied again 10@15c and ruled compara tively steady to the close. Cash in moderate request, and quotable at $12.10(§12.15c. A fair business was reported in the lard market and the feel ing was quite steady. The quite liberal shipments attracted some attention. Ship ping inquiry moderate. The market opened comparatively steady and advanc ed 2%(d, 5c per 100 pounds, but this im provement was soon lost. Later the feel ing was stronger and prices rallied s@loc per 100 pounds and ruled comparatively steady to the close. Cash quotable at $8. 25 @ 8.30. The reoeipts of grain to-day were 166 cars wheat, 538 cars and 12,800 bushels corn, 176 cars oats and 107 cars rye; the shipments, 188,000 bush els wheat, 331,000 bushels corn, 103,500 bushels oats and 331,000 bushels rye; the charters, 73,000 bushels wheat and 424,000 bushels corn.

Poole, Kent <fc Co. were liberal buyers of wheat this morning. Lester & Kershaw also purchased round lots of wheat during the early part of the session. The influ ence of this buying had a tendency to hold up values for a time. The feeling is not one of weakness, although prices are low er. There was but little difference in the receipts of hogs from those of yesterday, and no essential change in prices in any grade. Shippers and packers of light and heavy grades were purchasing to a moderate extent of fair to choice lots . Sales ranged from #4.80^5.25 for fair to good heavy packing, $email@example.com for good to Baity ST. PAUL, MINK, FRIDAY MORJSTING, AUGUST 17, 1883. choice heavy shipping, and from $ 5.40@ 5.90 for good to choice smooth light pack ing and shipping grades. The receipts to-day are estimated at 10,000 head. With a considerable number of cattle left over from yesterday, and from ex cessive receipts again to-day, the market ruled dull, with a downward tendency.

J Chicago, Aug. 16. — Charley Kee, an in telligent Chinaman whose laundry is on Clark street, near Taylor, married a pretty young white girl out of a mission school in Philadelphia a few months ago, and wishes he hadn't.

He adopted American dress an customs, and finally took an American wife. He says he treated her kindlyl and bought her all sorts of handsome things. Yes terday he was deeply grieved to find that the police had arrested his wife, Mattie Eec, in a house of ill-fame, kept by color ed people at 43 Harmon court.

He Confesses His Crime and His Execu tioners Decree . His Death —A. Chinese Murder in Denver— Cussedness- TOOK THE LAW IN THEIB OWN HANDS . Memphis, Aug. 16. — On the 26th day of last July Towns Soyle, a young merchant engaged in business at Oakland, Miss, eighty miles south of here, on the line of the Memphis & Tennessee railway, was as sassinated by an unknown person, who mutilated his remains in a horrible man ner. Suspicion pointed to a man named Jo Payne, who was accused yesterday. He made a full confession, and it was gives out that he would be publicly hanged to day noon. An Appeal's Oakland special thus describes his taking off: To-day at 2:25 p. m, Jo Payne, colored, was hanged by an almost unanimous vote of 500 or 600 citizens. The proceedings were quiet and business like. Sheriff Pearson made a most eloquent appeal in favor of the law taking its course, but the crime was so . revolting and his confession of cold, deliberate murder so clear and satis factory that the sheriff was overpowered and relieved of his charge. A court was at once organized, . Hon. J. M. Moore, the mayor of Oakland, presiding. W. M. Fitzgerald and W. V. Morre, attorneys, proceeded to state that Payne had mad* full confession, saying that on the night of the killing he went to the house of Soyle for the purpose of killing him for his money. That he waited there until Soyle came out, when he joined him and they walked about 200 yards, when he knocked him down, then cut his throat and threw him in a deep gully. He rifled his pockets of money and the store safe keys. He then went to the store and got what money was there, . amounting in all to about $30. After confessing, a vote was taken, and death by hanging was the verdict of the crowd who acted as jurors. Gallows were at once erected and the prisoner mounted the scaffold with a firm step. He made a speech again confessing his guilt, and addressed everybody and their children and bade them avoid evil thoughts. The black cap was then adjusted, the drop fell, and in ten minutes he was pronounced dead.

New Yobk, Aug. 16.— The United Btates senate sub-oommittee on labor and edu cation continued its session to-day. Mrs . L. L. Twitchell, of Brooklyn, testified that she was formerly president of the Work ing Woman's association in San Francisco, and also of the Female Shoemakers' asso ciation. She had been a member of vari ous other trade organizations . She said there were many women who had been brought up in comfort who were unable now to make enough to support them selves. There were at least 5,000 women ill New York and Brooklyn who would be glad to obtain work at any price. This had been the case ever since emigration had grown to its present proportions, and it would continue as long as emigration was unrestricted. Trades unions are also the means of preventing ' many women from obtaining work, as it was the policy of the union to restrict the number of its members. Labor in this city was controlled by trades unions, and it was the object of the leaders of unions to create a corner in labor until they could get a place for themselves and then desert their fol lowers. The government, she thought, should assist the unemployed classes to go where they could obtain employment. This surplus only existed in the large, crowded centres of population in the east, and wit ness thought if they were assisted to go west the pressure would be relieved. Wit ness advocated the establishment of schools of domestic economy for poor people, and the taking of steps to elevate the condition of the class of lazy, indolent paupers that infested large cities.
