Caic _". j, Jan. 7.—There was :nten<e ex
oltement on the board of trade this morn
ing, it being '-.a annual election of officers
and "ball 3 ai. ".ears" forgot their dffer
enses -while th urged the claims of their
respective eano lates. There were four
candidates for president—E. N;.BOnßeade
A. M. Wright, W. S. Crosby and Enoch B.
Stevriiis, who recuived votes in the order
named: 565, 437, 112, 73, scat
tering 13, making a total
of 1,203 vo'es cast. For vice president
Gen. T. Smith received 574, A. AY. Green
391, A. N. Yonng 221. As a majority of all
votes cast— GO2--is required in order to
elect, the election will be held ?gsin to
morrow, when the contest will probably be
between Blake and Wright, with the
chances in favor- of the lattbr. All three
of the vice president candidates will be
run. It is possible that
an. entirely new ticket will bo
sprang, in which event it may
take another day to decide who shall ad
minister the affairs of the new board of
trade building, which will ba dedicated
the coming eeason. There has never been
a more closely contested election, and
several hundred thousand tickets wore
printed and need. To-night two printing
offices are running to supply the ballots
for to morrow's fray. Mr, Wright is one
of the oldest members of the board, is held
in high esteem and has frequently been
spoken of in connection with the
Mayoralty. He is a good parliamenta
rian and flaent speaker, and thoroughly
reversed in the rules and regulations of
the board. He is opposed principally be
cause h3 antagonized the payment of dif
ferences in the deal in July, 1882. Mr.
Green v/.is opposed for vice president on
aocount of hi 3 testimony before the in- .
vestigating committee of the same deal,
and printed abstracts of his evidence were
scattered about very profusely.
Six hundred thousand ballots wore
printed for to-day's board of trade eiec- (
tion. The following were elected.
Dirootors—W. S. Seovern3, J. C. Hately, ,
W. W. Cotton, W. H. Crocker and Edmund ,
Committee of Arbitration—W. Gardner, ,
T. G. Kommerer, J. C. Merrell, G. W. Phil- ,
lips and F. G. Logan.
Committee on Appeals—J. B. Hubbs,
S. R. Carter, A. Eddy, Jr., P. B. Weore ,
and N. T. Wright.
Shortly before adjournment, a ma
jority of the yotes having been
cast, trading started up in the corn pit and
the bears successfully hammered prices
down several points from the opening, ,
which had been %o above the close on ■
Saturday. In this they were aided by W.
T. Baker & Co., who hold heavily of Feb
ruary corn. This started the rumor that ,
the New Yorkers were unleading or getting •
ready to dump their holdings. Schwartz ]
& Dupee kept aloof from the market, how- |
ever, and let it drop until May (
closed weak on . tho curb j
at 59J4C Ii: is very unlikely ,
the New Yorksrs should care to boom corn j
during tha first part of the month, and 3
lhu3 induce larger shipments to trouble .
them later. It would seem lo be their uol- ,
icy to 1 ite, especially t
as they have the control of the stnif, hay- <
paid for nearly all the •
:in -.'.or?.. Thia enabh;-. *
. it the market d
not gr.-- ] nly or too far to
imperil >.'.-,o;r holdings. Some of
the . operators thought that the
appearance of W. T. Baker & 00.. aa
tilers of February com was simply
ous of the tactics io depress prices, and
thus help to dissuaae St. Louis holders
from shipping corn to this market. Corn
sympathized with the weakness in wheat,
was sensitive to iheabsenca of outside or
ders and leading operators, but the great
sourco of weakuess in the market arose
from the fact that corn reoeived from St
Louis was grading well, and tbat large
quantities were said to bo about to be
shipped here fr.:m that point. To
prevent this by a depression
of prices may ba tho intention
of the parties in power.
The receipts of wheat were posted as
only 16? cars for the forty-eight hours,
and the market opened a shade higher
than it closed on the curb on Saturday., It
advanced to $1.03^5, but speedily declined
for want of interest, which wi*s centered"
in the election. The bears saw their op
portunity, aud . icy hammered it down to
$1.02}£. The Adams crowd bought heav
ily ana sent the market to $1.02%, but
whan there cams a report of the posting
of 250,000 bushels in New York the crowd
rushed to sell, aud the market closed weak
at $1.02^. On the call the situation was
still weaker, the New York crowd closing
out over a million busbels of May at
$ 10l?_(@:l 02. It wae'weak on the curb at
$10i;_£. Everyone seemed surprised at
th? strength of the market as the bears
were in full strength and tho bulls without
a leader. Winter wheat was inactive and
nominally [email protected] for No. 2 red and 910
for No.' 3 red in special location.
Minor, Richard 3 & Co. said: "We bad
thought recent breaks had been sufficient
to expect a reaction, but our observations
are that the bear side ia gaining friends
daily, and we still believe the winning side
is to sell on all advances."
The movement of the provision market
shows the bears and bulls are about evenly
divided. The receipts of hogs were not as
large estimated. The packers were holding
off from bu\ in/. The crowd were in a state
jor uncertainty, owing to the stock cf
| meats and lard being so much larger
. than wes anticipated, and they were
nervous over the assertion which ha
made very strongly that hogs were being
held b?.ck bj commission men at various
points under orders from large packers.
Despite all these various influences the
market opened strong, with slightly higher
price? but with little activity. Later the
weakness of the grain market extended
and pork declined [email protected], lard [email protected],
and rib. [email protected] On the eali
there was a sport of activity
and prices appreciated so that on
the earb quotations were about the same
ac on Sata.day at tbe close of business.
The new strength was largely imported by
Phil Armour's pr.rchasa of short ribE, of
which ha bought a million pounds.
Crittenden & Harvey say: "We think the
oatlook favors bayeis if an) thing on
weak places." Shopard & Peacock: "We
inuit have largo receipts of bogs before we
oan expect much activity at the yards, and
utder euch circumstances we can only
look for a quiet market in produce
particularly with such a volume of busi
ness as is now current.
The receipts of hogs fall considerably
below anticipation. Nearly e.vjryone ex
pected 25,000 to 30,000, jet the Bomber will
barely exceed 18,000. The demand was
sharp as the market really opened. For a
time both packers and speculators brought
out freely, and there were several mor6
packers on the market then on Saturday,
bat after both filled their orders thsre was
a slight reaction, but not an essential de
cline es compared with Saturday.
The range on assorted light and fancy as
sorted shippers was fully up to any day
last week. The daily Commercial Bulletin
in referring to the inovemo it of hugs and
progress of packing operations at ihi3
point says:
The recoipts of live hogs during the
past week wore 45,824 against 102,689 for
the week previous and 134,579 for the
corresponding week last year. The ar
rivals wore considerably lighter than
expected and the quality was only fair.
The falling off in receipts is partially at
tributable to holiday wsek, the cold
weather and the reduction in prices sub
mitted to during the week previous. The
domand on packing acoount was limited,
as manufacturers of product had no press
ing orders to fill. Shippers, howevor, were
quite free purchasers, taking the bulk of
the offerings. The market in a general
way exhibited considerable etrength, and
receivers were enabled to obtain
quite satisfactory figures. Prioes ad
vanced [email protected] per 100 pounds, more par
ticularly for the better qualities. Sales
ranged at $4 [email protected] 30 according to quali
ty, with theAulk of the transactions at
|[email protected] Tho receipts at other west
ern packing points tjpvo been light, bnt
the quality good. Packing operations
were oonduoted on a very limited scale
during the past week. The supply of hogs
was small, and packers were not inclined
to do much business. SAanafaoturers for the
domestic trade transacted but li-tie busi
ness, and the bulk of the slaughtering wa3
oredited to those houses which make a
specialty of meats suitable for the export
trade. Mess pork was made sparingly
and other cuts of pork receive little atten
tion. Hams and shoulders were made
moderately, short ribs met with some
favor, and th»» manufacture is fair. Long
and short clear sides attract little atten
tion. Foreign cuts of meat are made
At tbe stook yards the receipts of cattle
were considerably larger than anticipated,
yet there was a good demand for anything
thst would do for shipment or the diessed
beef trade, and at prices fully as good as
on any day last week. For export cattle
there was abetter inquiry than oa Satur
day, and for such prices ruled strong. For
the best description of butahers' stock, fat
heifers and fat cows, the demsnd was
steady. Some salesmen complained that
jornera and common were 6low and a
shade easier. Blockers and feeders were
owing to the limited number on sale.

There were orders on the floor apparent
for a fair amount of stock. Trading waa
aclive, tho transactions np to nocn footing
up over 200,000 shares. A glance along
the line at about 2 p. m. failed to
show but little improvement, however,
from the opening. In fact, several prop
erties showed a falling off, and continued
to grow weaker from thai hour. This was
rather a damper, and many stocks bought
early in the day were gotten rid of as fast
as possible. Northern Pacific preferred
and Oregon Transcontinental were partic
ularly feeble. It is a mystery how these
stocks are sustained at all at present figures
wi-h so muoh trouble in the company.

duced in congress to redaoa freight rates

Wall street was disturbed this morning
by reports that a railroad capitalist was
financially embarrassed. Subsequently
it appeared that the reports probably arose
from th« fact that Mr. Henry W. Ford had
resigned tha presidency of the National
Bank of the Republic and Mr. Thomas T.
Buckley, th 6 vies president. Both,however,
had decided to do so several weeks ago, and
were to have retired at tlie animal meeting
of the stockholders 10-day. Mr. Ford is
president of, and largely interested in the
Cleveland, Youngstond; Pittsburg Rail
road company, and Mr. Buckley is a di
rector and also haa a considerable interest
in it. It ib understood that at the election
to-morrow Mr. G-orge W. Carhart, who
founded the ban':, will be made president,
John J. Orana vice president.
the >Jiss>ag Steamer Spoken About a
Xhoos.-ij.il Miles Out Fram Sandy
|Special Telr^.-am to the Globe.]
New Yobk, Jan. 7. —T.;e White Star line
steamer, Celtic, was spoken again on De
cember 2.), two weeks out from JNew To;k.
B. J. Corlie, the New York agent, received
a dispatch to that effect from. Liverpool
to-day. The Canarder, Bothnia, signaled
the Celtic to learn if any help was wanted,
and a negative answer was received. The
Captain of the Bothnia says the Celtic is
making slow progress but wa3 all
right, except fGr her broken shaft. The
Celtic, whan he epoko her, was
a little north of the course of the White
Star line steamers, and about 1,000 miles
out from Sandy Hook. She had thus made
1,000 miles in fourteen days under sail,
and her last 500 miles in seven days. At
that rate, and with the recent foul winds,
she is not likely to arrive unaided before
Feb 1. At the postoffice tc-day the super
intendent of the foreign mails said the Cel
tic carried out a very large and important
mail, sailing on. the 15th of the month-
She waß due at Queenßtownon the 24th,
aud the mails would have beeu distributed
in London on Christmap. Bhe was a very
reliable ten day mail carrier to London.
Tiiere were many valuable Christmas pres
ents in the mail whioh the senders expected
to yet to their friends on Christinas day.
Tha package mail filled 149 sacks. The
letters numoered i 10.000 and fiilad ninty
"If loSff results from delayed mail is
there no redress?" was asked.
"No;thecap am is responsible for safe
delivery of tho mails, but he is at liberty
to transfer it to any other ship or keep io
on his own. If he transferred it to another
ship aud it was then lost, ho would not be
liable in damages, but transfers are not
usually made, People have to take the
chances of accidents.
Liveepool, Jan. 7.—The steamship
Bothnia has arrived here and reports that
she passed on December 29, in latitude 42,
longitude 53, a four masted steamer, cvi
dently the Celtic, under sail. The con
trary winds would render her progress
slow. The Bothnia reports adverse
wind 3 during the voyage. The Celtic may
not be expected to arrive for some days,
as she left New York on December 15 for
Liverpool, and was spoken to as disabled
and under sail on December 22.

Chicago, Jan. 7.-Delegate Raymond, of

Nearly AH the Bodies Recovered, but Some
Unidentified-Clapped In an Embrace of
Death—Sketch of the Sister .S;u>e_iar.
St. Louis, Jan. 7.—The latest advices
from Belleville are: The work of search
ing for the bodies ceased about 4 o'clock
for fear of ihe falling wails, but it will
probably be resumed to morrow. A re
quiem mass will be celebrated to-morrow
forenoon, when all the bodies taken from
the ruins up to that time wiil be hurled.
Nothing later is received from Belleville
up to noon to-day, but additional informa
tion is momentarily expected. The search
for bodies was to be resumed Ihi*
morning cf the condition of the walls, and
other parts of the ruins woald permit, and
the remans of the still missing victims
are expected to bo found. The following
is an extract of tha description of the
search yesterday, and will convey an idea
ofthes'care and horrible nature of the
works: Th 9 bodies were fell near each
other, and tho Mother Superior's body
seemed to bo the centre for the ghastly
circle of black remains. A bone was
picked up hsre, and on its being drawn
out, came loose ftom some particle of
roasted flesh. Here a burned skull was
found, and there an arm, while trunks
burned into solid crisp were dag up
immediately under them. It was an aw
ful exhumation, and more than once the
work faftered, because of the siokening
sensations which overcame the workmen.
It seemed that horrid heap would never be
exhausted, and every few minutes there
wa3 a report that a new bedy had been
taken Tout. Shreds of burned clothing
olung to the sickening mass. It was im
possible almost to find identity of bodies,
the fisry fiDgers of death having effaced
every line and every shape of conutenanoo
and form. The bodies, in instances, clung
together and the heap as it was uncovered
to the eye was absolutely indescribable.
No press report or specials reoeived from
Belleville up to 2p. in., but meagre pri
vate advices say the search for the bodies
was resumed this morning and saveral
more recovered. The number and nameß
are not given, however, reporters were ex
pected to arrive from the scene on the
2:30 p.m. train when an account ofthe
morning's work will be wired.
As Mary Jerome, the sister superior of
the convent, wa3 well known in many
parts of the country, tha following sketch
may bo intarestiag: She had given all her
life to the service of the church. She was
known iv the church as Barbara Hull.
Born forty-four years ago in Pittsburg,
her parents were wealthy and her educa
tion progressed under the most favorable
circumstances. She passed through the
academic course of the sisters of mercy at
Beltimore, and entered the convent of
Notre Dame, Milwaukee, when sixteen
years of age as a novice. When
her novitiate was completed, she was sent
by the superioress to New Orleans, rem air
ed there a few years, and was next as
signed to Beilvillf, in 1859, as superioress
of the new convent and academy of the
Notre Dame society. The early history
of the convent was full of difficulties, over
come by the business tact and intelli
gent direction of the young superioress.
From time to time the house was enlarged,
costing in all about $80,000, and was the
principal convent of the society. Nearly
all the debts had been
removed by the wua mangemsnt of
Mother Jerome. In addition to the large
convent at Bslleville, Mother Jerome
founded several other houses of the society
in southern Illinois, and exercised
through the delegation of the mother gen
eral of Milwaukee, protectionary jurisdic
tion, over the several convents south of
Milwaukee. Throughout her jurisdiction,
where she wa3 so well known, and so well
beloved, tho sorrow at her fate will be
limitless. She was a mos. unselfish,
and admirable woman, beloved by
every one wbo knew her. When tbe fire
was racing she mi^ht have saved herself,
being in a dormitory from which all es
save her. When others descended
r thought
was to save the livei of tbe children en
■ 1 tj h»r c^.re. I
b, for all co
en tho dormitory of the si
tho dormitory of tho children was ent off
by the flames and suffociti.'g Bmoke, and
she perished in her heroic off or t.
A reporter just from Bellovii;,- says: The
search foi the bodiea was resumed about
11 o'clock this morning, but up to the
time ho left little progress had been made.
He states that fourteen instead of eleven
bodies were taken out yesterday, but none"
identified excepting those named in these
dispatches last night. To-day only two
back bones, a hand and a few small bones
were discovered up to two o'clock, and no
moie identifications had taken place. The
inquest was begun this morning: and sever
al witnesses were examined. The remains
of Mary Campbell and Miss Weimer were
brought io this city this afternoon.
R -potters wbo have returne#from Belle
■ le to-night state that the search in the
of the convent was resumed between
10 and 11 o'clcck this morning and con
tinued till about 4 this af:ernoor>, aud
what was supfsed to be the remains of six
additional bodies were recovered, bat the
remnants are of so indefinite a character
it is difficult, if not impossible, to determ
ine whether they represented six or some
other cumber of persons. One of the^-e is
beli« ed to be Sister Agnelia, another Em
ma Stock, of Garbondale, Illinois, and j
sail another Minnie Baily
or Mary Bartels. Two more of
those found yesterday are identified bs
Lanr? Thompson and Amelia Leonard. It
is nor definitely known how many more
are mising, but the search will be con-
Li tued to-morrow and kept up till all the
ruins have been dug over.
Ttie inquest continued this afternoon,
a-;d after ttse examination of a dozen wit
nesses adjourned till to-morrow. The fune
ral of t'i i V)ctim3 will probably take place
to-morroiv. The remains of Miss Camp
bell aud Mi*s Wierman, brought here this
afternoon,will be buried to morrow.
