PRUVJ MODERATELY FIRM* The :■■■ it York Stocfc Market Uase.i id bter Feverish. CHICAGO. . lecram to tho Globe.J CnroAGO, Jan. 3.—At the board of trado election to-day Mr. L. Nason Blike, of ' -.. was elected preeident and ith, late of Smith & I. "i- c 1.1 vice president. Yes terdaj these dispatchts, liftle else ; >::;; tha eleoti was thonght of, but to-day the ele stiom ring was left to a few win!-; the remainder quietly deposited their votes and Hastened into the pits to sell wheat, bey corn or canvass the posi tion of Armour in regard to provisions. The wheat market opened very weak qnder advices from Liverpool of a large failure and .-'.ports from New Yorit that ther.: . large lot of wheat posted as out of condition. Opening at abou: $I.ol*jg for May the market receded to $1.01%, Bold to $1.00% then to $I.oo^, advanced to $1.01%, went off, and after fluctuating closed at $1.01% bid. There was ojlj 050 sUa reported atsl.ol}£. The market was Gtrecgthened by the heavy purchase.-, of Jno. Lenter, Charley Mair, "Deacon" ELobbs and Roach, who took nearly a million bushels each, Lester bought during the day 1,500,000 bushels.

The hammering by the bears and the change of front by their tfhilom companions before named werti about the only features in the wheat pit. Crittenden & Harvey ''are ii;cliu4d to think that we shall get .1 good rally in prices before seeing a lower range of values." A large number of telegrams from St. Louis were received during the day, and nearly all of them were bullish oa wheat and bearish on corn. The foreign advices were all unfavorable to-day, and the stock in store is 12,044,958 bushels against 11,800,415 bushels one week ago. It goes without saying that the parties who last night prophesied May wheat $1 to-dsy were much disappointed when $1.01% was bid on the curb to-night. There was considerable demand from shippers to-day for corn of the lower grades. The receipts were 324 cars, and stocks were posted 3,161,211 bnshels, against 2,580.«;84 a week ago. The stock of No. 2in store is now 2452,033. The speculative market opened weaker and prices declined rallied %@%c, but fiualiy closed about 13^0 lower for Belier January, %c lower for February, and T_c lower for May than on yesterday.

Tbe cteotion wtr"eh concluded to-day had many amusing features connected with its progress. Mr. Wright's friends deemed his election quito certain until this morn ing, wlu-n some ticktta were circulated with "yellow wagon candidate, for presi dent, E. N. Blake," printed in black letters on yellow paper. The wagons used by Armour & Co., are all painted yellow; Phillip Armoar is often termed "the old yellow wagon." The Dake bakery wagons are also painted yellow. Mr. Blake is one of its proprietors. The tioket was thus capable of two significations, and both were correct. It was evident all the Armoar crowd, its brokers and "tailers," ! •were bound to beat Mr. Wright, and they j 1 di _ it by giving Blake 785 votes to A. M. <Vright436. A promiuent imd on the street remarked: This ia a vindication endorsement of the coarse taken by . Blake and his s^pr.orterson ihe board ir i-.cticn regarding the McGecch ler lard case. it 13 also significant proof to members of the board of trade who are not willing to be bound by their contracts, and who stand ready to appeal to the courts at any time when they get squeezed. Mr. Wright tried to stsL-d on high moral ground as an opponent of corners, but "the boys" char acterize him as a "kicker." Hia action in tho July, 1882 wheat deal, and his sympa thy Willi Fowler Bros., as against Mr. UcGeooh are the things which belt him. The Globz correspondent - died at the office of Phil Armour & Co., to congratulate them on having elected their candidate. King Phillip and hi 3 cabinet were in fceseion. Ou hia left in the place formerly occupied by Geo. Brine, sat Harry P. Darlington, who formerly represented Washington Butchers sons ia Chicago. Ha has not been long enough in his position to have caught tbe dislike for newspaper men which his vis a vis, Mr. WeSster, broaght with him from New York, as that Jesuiti cal, clammy hand-clasp of CaL Favorite, who fronts the chief, but he is rapidly acqniring tne ready nmile and open lrank expression of Phil himself. All ware in good humor. I said: 'Mr. Armour, 1 congratulate you on having elected your president, and upon your increasing popularity. Oue of the oldest Democrats on tho street jaat re marked that if the Republicans would nominate you for president he woald vote for you." "Thanks," replied the enthroned pork king, reaching over and handing your correspondent one of the yellow wagon tickets, "1 never spoke to Mr. Blake in my life, but we learned he was not a kicker aud didn't go back oa his contracts." Mr. Favorite made some sarcastic allus ions about "right or wrong," but Mr. Webster only smiled his satisfaction that the candidate who was said to have tho support of the Anglo-American Packing company had been defeated. Mr. Blake waß warmly supported by the flour crowd, who ran bim at tha head of the titckei of their own. Frank Clifton, of Fowler Bros. & Co., is said to have excused his supporting the defeated candidate by saying he thought ho was running "James Wright," referring to "James Wright & C 0.," the Fowlers' pet brand of lard. Tho board of trade have* elected a good set of officials all through. They are men of honor and responsibility, in whose hands the interests of tha specu lators as well aa the trading community will be conserved. The hog market was generally quiet, yet a few early sales were made at yesterday's closing prices bnt the great bulk of the business transacted up to noon, when this report closed, showed a decline of about 100 en all grades except choice Pniladel pbias. The run was only fair, but tho de mand mainly from packers and shippers, speculators not taking hold very fr«e!y. Some salesmen declared the_e was a drop of 15 to 20c, but thi3 is hardly borne out by the rtturns. The quality was much better ihan any day last week. A large number of the bo3t farmers of Illinois and lowa are marketing their own breeding and raising. Receipts were liberal and a fair demand for fat and fully finished cattle at about last week's prioes and equally aR high as yesterday. Toe best grades of butchers' stock seemed to be holding its own and making as good prices as last week. Csnners and com mon rather easier, but sot quotably lower. The supply of Btockers and feeders was light, pricts very high and a fair demand. Chicago Financial. [Special tele, ram to tne Globe.] Chicaoo, Jan. 8. —The local money market is unchanged. There was a good attendance »f borrowers and a fair inquiry cx:sted for funds. Rates remain steady at 6 per cent, on call and 7 percent, on time. Eastern exchange between city banks changed hands at 75 premium per $ ,000. The bank clearings were $6,885,000 against $8,300,000 yesterday. The orders for currency were \ory meagre. SEW roiiK.

Union Pacific was bols.ered, evidently for tit:: purpose of marketing other stocks. There was little life during tho middle of the day, the market looking quite tired at times. There were whispers in the air that Chicago, Bur lington &. Qaiccy and its opponents were having trouble. Inside of thirty days the report will be audible enough, for well in formed parties s-.-em to feel confident that there will be a heap of mischief within that time. Alton had a small boom. The stook sold at 130, having closed last evening at 1344. The earnings of the Illinois Centrf 1 for the fourth week in December decreased $00,000. Many other lines will make even a worse showing.

FBIGHTFUL SCAFFOLD ACCIDENT. .Special Telegram to the Globe. | Milwaukee, Jan. B.—At ten o'clock this morning a frightful accident occurred at the Conro building, m course of erection on Broadway. Three men standing on a scaffold in the story were precipitated to the cellar a distant of forty or fifty feet, oue being almost instantly killed and ttie others mortally wounded. Henry Hosey, a fireman, and Charles Klop&rdick, a work man, were standing on the teafijlu when John J. Dann, tho contractor, stepped on it. A board broke and tne three men went crashing through to the basement. Dunn, who was a well known builder and con tractor, and was thirty-five years old, was frightfully crashed. He was pulled out of the debris, but died in a few minutes. He leaves a large family. Hosey was fa tally injured, and may die at auy mo ment. He is forty yours old and leaves a family. KloperuLk was crushed and bruised, and cannot recover. He is forty three and a man of family. No one is ap parently to blame for the accident. THE CONVENT HOBBOB St. Louis, Jan. B.—Search in the ruins of the convent at Belleville, 111., was re sumed thi3 morning, and up to 1 o'clock two more bodies were found. The remains of the sister superior, Mary Jerome, were discovered at noon, and was identified by the spectacles, with gold chain attached to the cross and rosary. The remains re ported yesterday as thr.=e of Bister Angelina are now supposed lo be those of Sister Edwarina. Granting that each lit tle heap of charred homes and roasted flesh, that so far has been taken from the ruins, represents a separate body, and it is very difficult to determine whether they do, there sre still n\e persons missing. The fouerals of the victims to be buried have been fixed for Thursday. AU tho priests and fathers of the diocese of Alton are in vited to attend. Father Abbelyn, of Mil waukee, has arrived, and will look after the interests of the society, and arrange for the funeral attd the future disposition of the remaining sisters. The latest report from Belleville to night is that no more bodies were found 1 his afternoon aud no more identifications were made. The inquest has proceeded all day and will be continued to-morrow. The testimony has been of a somewhat con flicting character, but shows pretty clearly that the fire department was entirely inad equate to cope with such a fire and sadly deficient in the neoassary appliances. Sis ter Elentheria testified this afternoon that eha thought there were peventj -one persons in the convent at the time of the fire, thirty-seven of whom esoaped, thus leaving thirty.four ac missing. This cannot be verified, however, as all the rtoords were burned, but the sister will at tempt to recall from memory the names of these present, and by comparing the names try and reach the actual number. This testimony created considerable sen nation, and every effort will be rofide tq ai<s6r_aili the facts in the case. The re mains identified as Emma Stock are now believed to be those of Miss Bailey, aad it ie doubttul whether Virginia Heintzelman has been found. Search will be resumed again to-morrow and will be prosecuted vigorously. UAEK ASnOBE.
