Chicago, Jan. 7,—There was intense ex
oitemoat on the board of trade this morn-
ing, it bGinp '\% annual ehction of officers
and "bulls a& laara" forgot their dffer
eases.while th urged the claims of their
respective cunu latea. There were fonr
candidates for president—E. Nasonßeade
A. M. Wright, W. S. Crosby and Enoch B.
Sfcevaus, who received votes in the order
named: 563, 437, 112, 73, scat
tering 13, making a total
of 1,203 vo.es cast. For vice president
Gen. T. Smith received 574, A. W. Green
391, A. N. Young 221. As a majority of all
votes oast— 602—1s required in order to
elect, the election will be held rgain to
morrow, when the contest will probably be
between Blake and Wright, with the
chances in favor- of the latter. All three
of the vice president candidates will be
run. It is possible that
an. entirely new ticket will be
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 be dedicated
the ooaimg eeason. There has never been
a more closely contested el6otion, and
several hnndrsd thousand tickets were
printed and used. 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 Bpeaker, and thoroughly
reversed in the rules and regulations of
the board. He is opposed principally be
muse ha antagonized the payment of dif
ferences in the deal in July, 1882. Mr.
Green w.is opposed for vice president on
account of hi 3 testimony before the in
vestigating committee of the same deal,
and printed abstracts of his evidence were
scattered about V6ry profasely.
Six hundred thousand ballots wore
printed for to-day's board of trada elec
tion. The following were elected.
Directors —W. S. Seoverns, J. C. Hataly,
W. W. Cotton, W. H. Crocker and Edmund
Cjmmittae 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 votes having been
OBst, trading started up in tha corn pit and
the bears successfully hammered prices
down several points from the opening,
which had been %o above the close o a
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 nnleading or getting
ready to dump their holdings. Schwartz
& Dupee kept aloof from the market, how
ever, . and .let "it f drop until May
closed weak ' on . the curb
at 59)40. It is very unlikely
the New Yorkers should cars to boom corn
during the first part of the month, and
thu3 induce larger shipments to trouble
them lat&r. It woaul seem to be their pol- :
icy to let the market fluctuate, especially
as th9y have the control of the stuff, hav
ing bought and paid for nearly all the
cash corn which is in store. This enables
them to take care that the ■ market does
not gravitate too suddenly or too far to
imperil their holdings. Some of
the , operators thought that the
appearance of W. T. Baker & Co,, as
large sellers of February corn was simply |
one of the tactics to depress • prices, and
thus help to dissuade St. Louis holders
from shipping corn to this market. Corn
sympathized with the weakness in wheat,
■was sensitive to the absenca of outside or
ders and leading operator?, but the great
source of weakuess in th* market arose
llwui vuo i£k v vUchu :■ 1 Mil ICvDL VvU i llii to V
Louis was grading well, and that large
quantities were said to be about to be
shipped here from that point. To
prevent this by a depression
of prices may ba the intention
of the parties in power.
The receipts of wheat were posted as
only 162 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%, but speedily declined
for want of interest,,which was centered
in the election. The bears saw their op
portunity, and they, hammered it down to
$1.02}^. The Adams crowd bought heav
ily and sent the market to $1.02,%, but
when there cam 3 a report of the posting
of 250,009 bushels in New York the crowd
rushed to sell, and the market closed weak
at $1.02>|..; On the call the situation was
still weaker, the New York crowd closing
out over a million busnels of May at
: $101% @1 02. ■It was'weak on the curb at
;jl 01^;" Everyone: seemed surprised; at
tiie strength of the market as the bears
were in fall strength and the bulls' without
a leader. Winter wheat was; inactive and
nominally 96 for No. 2 red and 9lc
for No." 3 red in special location.
Minor,"Richards & 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 evenlj
. divided. The receipts of hogs were not as
large estimated. The packers were holding
off from buy in j. The crowd were in a state
of /nn°?rt;inty, owing :to the/stock of
meats and lard being so much larger
i than wa3 anticipited,, and they were
vou3 over tho assertion which has been
made very strongly that hoga were being
held back by commission ; men at - various
points under orders from large packers.
Despite all these various influences the
market opened strong; with slightly higher
prices but with little activity. Later the
weakness of the grain market extended
and pork declined [email protected] 15c, lard [email protected],
and rib? [email protected] On the cali
there; was a sport of activity
and prices ppreciated ]bo that on
the curb quotations were about the same
as on Sataiday at the close of business.
Tha new strength was largely imparted by
Phil Armour's pr.rchasa of :ehort' ribs, < of
which ha bought; v a million ■pounds.
Crittenden & Harvey say: "We "think the
outlook favors bnyeisOif snjthing on
j waak places." Shopard & Feacock: ."We i

can expect much activity at the yards, and
under : 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 everyone ex
pected 25,000 !o 30,000, yet the number 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 more
packers on the market than on Saturday,
bat after both filled their orders there was
a plight reaction, but not an essential de
oline •■ as 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 movement of hogs and
progress of packing operations at / thia
point says:
The receipts of live ho^s during the
past week .were 45,824 against 102,639 for j
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 eff in receipts is partially at
tributable to holiday week, the cold
weather and the reduction in prices sub
mitted to during the week previous. The
demand on packing account was limited,
as maDufecturers of product had no press
ing orders to fill. Shippers, however, were
quite free purchasers, taking the : bulk of
the offerings. The market in a general
way exhibited considerable strength, and
receivers were enabled to obtain
quite satisfactory figures. Prioes ad

the quality good. . Packing operations
were oonduoted on a : very limited scalo
during the past week. The supply of hogs
was small, and packers were not ; inclined
to do much business. Manafabturers or the
domestic trade transacted but little; busi
ness, and the bulk of the slaughtering was
credited to those houses which make a
specialty of meats suitable for the export
trade. Mess pork was mad* sparingly
ami omer cuts 01 porK receive lntie atten

moderately, short ribs met with "'. some
favor, and the manufacture is fair. Long
and short clear sides attract little atten
tion. Foreign cuts of meat; are made
At the stock yards the receipts of cattle
were considerably larger than anticipated,
ye* there was a good demand for anything
that would do for shipment or the diesaed
beef trade, and at prices fully as good a*
on any day last week. For export cattle
there was a better inquiry than on Satur
! day, and for such prices ruled strong. For

New Yobs, Jan. 7. —The market opened i
this morning with considerable vim, and it j
was evident manipulators for a lisa trie d to
make it look as attractive a3 possible
' There were orders •on the floor apparent
for a fair amount of stock. Trading wa«
active, tho transactions up to noon footing :
; up over 200,000 - shares. \\A - glance along
: the line ~at about 2 .p. ; in. 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 that hour. This iwas
1 rather a damper, and many stocks bought
■ early in the day were gotten rid of as fast
a3 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
r wit h so muoh trouble in the ■ company.
j Ur.ion Pacific was supplied freely at about
75 and succumbed to theprssgare. Central
and Hudson, Denver and Northern Pacific
preferred were worth a small premium tc
day. The Oregon railway dividend for
February will be 2 per cent. The Misaouri

duced in congress to reduo3 freight rates
on the Union PaciSc and Central Pacific.
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
Back cf the Republic and Mr. Thomas T.
Buckley, the vies president. £otb,however,
had decided to do so several weeks ago, and
were to have retired at the annual meeting
of the stockholders to-day. Mr. Ford is
president of, and largely interested in the
Cleveland, x'oungston & Pittsburg Rail
road company, and Mr. Buckley is a di
rector aud also hati a considerable interest
iv it. It js understood that at the election
to-morrow Mr. George W. Carharr, who
founded the bank, will be made president,

Nearly A)l the Bodies Recovered, but Some

Death—Sketch of the SfsterSupFiior.
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 She falling walls, but :it will
probably be resumed tomorrow^ A re
quiem mass will be celebrated to-morrow
forenoon, when all the bodies taken from
the ruins up to that time will be buried.
Nothing later 13 received from Belleville
up to noon to-day, but additional informa
tion is momentarily expected. The search
for bodies j was ;to bo resumed thi»
morning cf the condition of the walls, and
other parts of tho ruins would 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 ian idea
of thes'care and horrible nature . of the
works: ■ The bodies t- were #11 near j each
other, and ' the Mother: Superior's body
seemed to bo the centre for the ghastly
circle ;. of 1 black ; remains. A bone was
picked up here, and on its being drawn
out, came loose, from some particle of
roasted flesh. ■.: Here a burned skull was
found, and there an arm, while ' trunks
burned into ' solid crisp were dug up '
immediately /under them. It was an aw-*
ful exhumation,* and more than once the
work faltered, because of the eiokeaing
sensations which overcame the workmen.
It stamed that horrid heap would never be
exhausted, and every few "minute* : there
was f a report ? that a new b»dy had been
taken 'out. .-Shreds of burned clothing
clung to the sickening mass. It was im- '
possible almost to find identity of bodies,
the fisry fingers of death having effac»d
every line and every shape of coanteuanoo
and form. The bodies, in instances, clung
together and the heap as it was nncovered
to the eye was absolutely indescribable.
"-■■'•:. - ■ LITEB. ."'•'. * :
•'; No press report or specials reo6ived from
Belleville up to 2p. m., but meagre pri
vate advices say the search for the bodies
was resumed this morning and. several I
more recovered. : The number and names 1
are not given", however,, reporters were ex
pected to arrive from the scene on the
2:30 p.m. train \ when an account of the
.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 be interesting:; She had given all her
life to the service of the church. ./ She was'
known in the "; L church":; as T"; Barb ara ~ Hull;
Born ; forty-four years - ago :in Pittaburg,
her parents were wealthy and her educa
tion progressed under" the | most \ favorabi«
circumstances. :: She i passed \ through ■ the
academic course of the sisters of \ mercy at
Baltimore, and entered the 'convent of
Notre Dame, Milwaukee,:' when sixteen
years of " • age '. as H\ a novice. - When j
her novitiate was completed, she was sent
by the "superioress to New Orleans, remaic-;
ed there a■• few I years, and ; was • next as
signed' to Bellvillf, in 1859, as i- saperiorees
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 I business J^ taot and ; intelli
gent direction of ' the • young superioress.
From time to time the house was enlarged,
"costing in all about ? $80,000, :; and waa th«
principal convent of ; the society. Nearly
all ; the debts " had ; been
removed, by the wise mangemsnt of
Mother Jerome.' In addition to the large
convent at Belleville, :Mother, l Jerome
founded several other houses of j the society
in t southern- Illinois, V; and exercised
through the delegation of: the mother gen
eral of .:• Milwaukee, i protectionary jurisdic
tion, over ~ the"; several ; 'convents • south fof j
Milwaukee. { * Throughout her jurisdictioi;, ; i
where she "was so well : known, and < so well !
beloved, the sorrow at her fate will be j
limitless. She was a moei unselfish. i
and admirable woman, beloved by
every one who knew her. When . the' fire
:was raging she might have saved herself, !
being in a dormitory from which all - ee
caped save her. When .:others: descended
the ladder to safety, her thought end action
was to save the lives of the children en
trusted tj her care. Her eeif-imi
task was fruitless, for all .communication
between the dormitory. of the sisters aa<l
the dormitory of the children ;f?.s eat off
by the ilitnes . and ociting: smoke, and
she perished in hsr heroic
: A reporter just from Belleville siys: The
search for the bodies was. resumed about
11 o'clock this morning, but up to the
time" he 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
aispatcnes ia«i nigni. xo-uay • oniy ; iwo;

inquest was begun this morning: and sever
al, witnesses were examined. / The remains
of Mary Campbell and Miss Weimer - were
bfongbttothia city this afternoon. r
, Reporters who have returne#from Belle
ville to-night state that s r the i search in the
rains of the convent was resumed between
10 and 11 f o'clock ' this morning 5 and con-j
tinned ti;l about 4 this afternoon, and
what Was snposetl to be the remains 'of, six
additional bodies were recovered, bat the
rema-iius are of bo iatlsfiaite a character
it is "difficult, if not impossible, to determ
ine whether they represented six/ or gome

believed to be Sister Agnelia, another Em
