'-tion were forgotten by re cf the board when the -. ■ .. lenctd this morning. The receipts of gi n were smaller than had- pattd, and although prices kept within a narrow range there was an unsettled feeling greater actively and frequert fluctuations. The crowd were bullish to day in wheat, and although the bears contested every point in the market and made some very Revere attacks, prices on the curb to-night were firm at$l O- 1,-! bid for May. Most of the outside orders to-day were to buy, and it is evident that Cincinnati and Indianapolis side with St. Louis in balling wheat and bearir^: eorn for the early and provisions for the distant options. Wheat opened a trifle higher than it closed yesterday uai^r the influence of these buy ing orders. When they had beon filled the market sag ged to about yesterday's closing prices They report that the visible supply would show a decrease of 500,000 to 700,000 bush els started somo of the shorts io buying, and on the basis of a telegram from New York that the export demand was increas ing Billy Murray finished covering lis large line of shorts aud went long to a con-:.. nount.

The bad a Bmall profit and hastened to realize. The presence of Sohwariz & Du pse, as large buyers, sustained the market, and i imber of local operators rdfr, so ?hat on the Belling of 1,500,000 May, wheat was on a rising maruct, and bidders more numerous than -■■ No. 2 aud I igh mixed corn were in good demand,|sold at 5djH£@56%o, and closed firm at 55^0 lad for car lots. Rejected sold at 46@463^0, and closed at 4Gc bid. New mixed waB very firm and sold at 50j4@50^o on 'change. The speculative market was active and unsettled, but prices fluctuated within a narrow limit. W. T. Boker & Co. were free sellers of February, but it was quickly absorbed as fast as it was offered. This waB the only feature in the February option. May monopolized the attention of the crowd and larger dealers. Early sales were made at 591£ @59%o and up to 59%o. R. W. Clarke & Co., the successors to N. B. Ream & Co., were large sellers, and Nat Jones kept them company. This broke the market off to 59^0, and a few trades were made at 59%9. A. H. Bliss, Seymour <fe Hunt and other large speculators became heavy purchasers and took all the oorn whioh was offered. It was said that Schwartz A. Dupee took all the near corn, and were the principal purchasers of the February which was sold by Baker. This seems to combat the position that Schwartz <fc Du pee were selling February against their large holdings of January. At all events it snsiains ths writer'3 position that the January eorn deal, remains to be heard from. Oa the curb the prices bid were Jan., 580, F May 57? ; j0. -: -'Corn ;s firm for May, while m : ar deliveries 'ire weak. Oi a ils of contract en was ridiculed, is ■ fn!filled. We have 3,C;i0,000 bushels already/' R. W. Clarke & Co. were doubtless in presBure of their Cincin nati representative, Charlie Kahn, who is not a believer in high priced corn. Wright thinks it a weak market all aronud, and nothing in sight to make it Btro ;erat i-r.-ciii. Crittenden & Harvey o bat one side to enrn, and buy in all easy places. Shepard & Peacock: "Under a fair amount of trading. Corn has been too early in th3 month for any demonstration by the clique," one of the oldest operators: "The clique are playing with the market to induce the crowd to put out a large line of shoits." There is about an evenly divided opin ion in regard to the course of the provis ion market, and leading speculators are waiting to see what course the markets will take before patting out large lines. Armour and the packing companies are the only packers buying hogs,and the latter left the market before noon to-day. There was a fair business in mes3 pork and prices fluctuated considerably between narrow limits. The marker, opened strong under the influence of the Armour report referred to yesterd ly, and prices advanced 5@10o. Later 10@12J^o of a decline was submitted to, which was finally overcome and the market closed quite firm at out side prices. February and May options received the most attention, but Armour's brokers bought some March pork. Lard moderately active and an advance of 5@ 10c was secured. Short rib3 were in mod erate demand at an advance of 2}£@5e per 100 ponnds. Ribs and laid were firm on call and closed steady. Pork scored a little advance and closed firm on the curb—bid February $14 55; May $15.07J^. Crittenden & Harvey say the demand is picking up again for cash meats, and things bear a more hopeful look. Shepard & Peacock: "There are plenty of looal shorts in the line now. Provisions are very strong. Hogs are not coming in fast enough to warrant the preecnt price." A large operator aays: '•There are lots of hogs •■finch will come forward in the spring and knock prices east and west." There are not a few "lambs" on 'change who are beginning sincerely to wish they had done almost anything rather than have sold short on provisions. For five or six d*ys past since discovering their error they have been seen every morning steal ing softly into the pit, tent on covering if possible their short pork or lard, but al ways with the same result. Nobody eonld be found with pork or lard for sale. There ia an unseen influence in provisions, of which sucklings had best beware, and as to which different theories are enter tained. "There is a strong hand under provi eions," said a provision man to-day, who cut his Fpeculative eye teeth when Chi cago was young, and with profit, "and the she rta may well be alarmed. It is prob ably Armour, but whoever it is it is plainly the intention to hold prices where they are." '•What can be their object in such a course'/ Is it not generally believed packers will favor any movement tending to briiig down pi IcesT' "That is undcabtedly the understanding, but what could not be accomplished by degrees may easily result from a little strategy. By showiDg their power stoutly they can make themselves feared by those outside of the ring, which ia one thing ia thiir favor. The shorts come in to cover and find everything tied up, the iiiiiaence becomes generally felt, then comes a break. By holding the market where it is till the whole scheme is ripe they evidently expect and will probably be rewarded with a big bulge. They have, however, an increased foreign demand to contend with, which if it continues to grow may spoil their little game before it is ripe. There was a little more stir in the flour market. Still trade was slow taken on the whole. A few Canadian crdozs were being rilled, the recent decline in freights help ing the shipping movements somewhat. Orders from Europe are very limited. Local jobbers made but few purchases, and prices remain unchanged. During the past twenty-four hours 20,953 barrels have been received, and 13,101 barrels shipped. The firmness in wheat and corn was transferred to oats, and while I there was only a limited trade prices were improved Hiil : S Five thousand bushels seller May were sold on cali at 37^0. For fully finished fat cattle there con tinues a good demaiid at steady prices. Half grown and half fattened steers are selling irregularly, and on the whole lower than last week. For the best grades of butchers' stock, fat cows, heifers, etc., there wa3 a brisk demand at prices as strong as at any time. There were a good many of poor skeleton cows among the arrivals this morning, and they sold at low figures, yet for all they were worth to any body. The market closed steady, receipts liberal for thiB time of year. There is a fair export demand, and suitable cattle are making $firstname.lastname@example.org. NEW lOliX. | Special Telegram to the Globe, 1 New Yobk, Jan. 9.—There were unlimit ed orders this morning to buy Michigan Central and Union Pacific. The result was a sharp advance in both. Mr. Tilden was reported as a large buyer of the latter, and Mr. Vanderbilt'a brokers took oare of the former. The [shorts in Jersey Central were equeez9d a little at the open ing. The market showed much manipu lation, and the working up of a half dozen stocks did not seem to affect it. The feeling was a trifle weak, at one o'clock Northern Pacific preferred fell to 55, and there was a bad break in Ontario & Western to 13. Persistent bid ding for Michigan Central and Union Pa cific was a feature throughout the day. In the late dealings stooks were firm. Mis souri Pacific sold above 91. There was much activity in Union Pacifio and it reached the highest point for the day. Thv market appeared to bo controlled by the bull leaders at the finish, and they talked quite confidently of a further ad vance. HARVARD SPORTS. Til-.* President's Report Contains Much Sound Art vice as to the Inter-College Giuies—He Considers that Trainers and Professional tiames for Money are Debasing to the Students, and Approves of A tuiiscmeufs as Amateurs. Boston, Jan. 9.—The annual report of the (president of Harvard college shows a cr>i.'9iderable decrease in the number of ( ids.its from the New England states, and .likable increase in the attendance from the middle states. An endowment ut >» 100,000 is asked for the law schools. Intttr-college contests in athletic sports, demand, Bays the presi dent, further regulation by agreement. Colleges whose students take part in them say they are degrading, both to the play ers and spectators if conducted with bru tality or m a tricky and jockeying spirit, and it becomes absurd if some of the competitors employ brains and play with professional players, while others do not. The authorities of Harvard are in favor of forbidding college clubs or crews who em ploy trainers, or who play or row with "professionals," or compete with clubs or crews who adopt either of these practices. They are op posed to all money making at inter-colle giate contests, and to the acceptance of money or gratuitously received service from railroads or hotels, and, therefore, to all exhibitions or oontests whioh are delib erately planned so as to attract a multi tude, and thereby increBse the gate money. In short, they believe that college sports should be conduct- d as the amuse mentB of amateurs, and not as the busi ness of professional pi a era. Suit lor iJamagus. New Yoek, Jan. 9. —C. D. Gilmoie, a lawyer from Washington, has begun i ait against Carl Schurz, ex-secretary of the in terior, for the recovery of $300,000 dam ages for disbarring him from practice. The offense which resulted in diBbarmeni was tbe alleged payment of moaey to a clerk in the gene al land office in a case in which Gilmore was interested. Daily ST. PAUL, MINN, THURSDAY MOENING, JANUARY 10, 1884. C0NGEESSI0ML. BOTH. HOUSES OBTJT.\G DOWS TO BUSUTJB83 AGJIA'. The Senate Discus-ina; tbe Amendments to the Rules—The Committee on Com merce and the Navy—A Committee Con troversy In the House—A Bill to Retire Small Greenbacks—Bills Introduced. Uce Senate. Jan, 'J. —Senator Plumb presented a petition from 20,000 ex-soldietB for the establishment of a soldier's home m Kansas. Senator Anthony offered a resolution in structing the committse on foreign rela tions to inquire into the expediency of legislation to enable the executive depart ment to protect our intere&ts against any governments whioh prohibited or restrain ed the importation otheaithfal meats from the United States. I. was la-i over until to-morrow. Petitions were presented by Senator Slater from the citizens of Oregon pray ing that the lands granted to the Ort-gon Central railroad, which have not been earned, be retaken by the United Stales. iij Senator Logan, praying for the pas page of an act pensioning ex prisoners cf war. Senator Logan introduced a bill for the construction o' a bridge across the Mis souri river by the Chicago, Rock Island &. Kansas City Railway company. Senator Morgan offered the following resolution, which was agreed to: Resolved, That the attorney general be instructed to transmit to the senate copies of reports, with accompanying paoers, made by the different examiners of the de partment of justice, concerning the busi ness of the courts of the United Sta'es in Alabamt, Georgia, Arkansas and Texas, which reports relate to the abuses by the officers of the said courts and marshals in said districts, on the charge of collecting and accounting for fees and other abuses, referred to in the rep* rt of Brewster Cam eron, general agant of the department of justice, made Jan. 5,1884. A biil was passed for the payment of six thousand dollars to the parents of Lient. Schwatka, Arctic explorer. This claim arose ou-i of the taking from the senior Schwatka laud in 1850 by the govern ment for a military reseivation. A bill authorizing the First National bank of Fort Worth, Texas, to iacruaio its capital stock waB passed. The senate resumed the consideration cf the new rules. The first question in or- I der was the aniendmeat of Senator Hale relating to the appropriation bills, to strike out the clause permitting a reft r ence of the District of Columbia appro priations to the senate committee and to' strike out the clause permitting the Dis trict of Uolumoiu appropriations to ths senate committee of the district. Agreed to; 27 yeas, 25 nays. Senator Plumb's amendments referring t > the appropriation bills for the different departments of the government in the first place to the committees respectfully hav ing charge in the senate of these interests in those departments were noS agreed to. Further action on this rule was post poned until after the consideration of the next reserved rule, which is No. 26. The proposed rule provides for a committee on internal improvements to consist of nine senators, to whom shall be referred all subjects relating to the improvements of rivers and harbors and also the river and harbor bill. Senator Vest moved to strike out this provision, as the committee of commerce have always faithfully performed these duties and are perfectly competent to deal with the river ond harbor bill. The stand ing oommittes by this rule would increase from thirty-four to thirty-eight. He thought that some of the committees could be dispensed with, and greater activity would be required by those that remained, and the oountry would be better satisfied and better served. It looked somewhat as though the committee were provided in order to secure secretaries for the sen ators. senator Coke favored the amendment. Senator Frye, while disclaiming any re flection on the committee on commerce as at present constituted, thought the com mittee made a very careless record for the last twenty years, in proposing no com promises to the original measures for tne promotion or revival of our shipping. Senator Frye said, that intense activity characterized England in regard to the shipping of that country, and England gained the victo^ in th-3 shipping line over every other nation of the world, and whilo he (Frye) could not help admiring the steady purpose and manner in which England has gone to work to accomplish it, he was constrained to say that always and everywhere she wcrks for money. Shd fought us nearly fifty years beoause we owned slaves, and when the war came she promised that the slave on the one hand had freedom and on the other continued slavery. She 6aw the op portunity, and, forgetting her principles, supplied the South with ammunition of war and arms of every kind. We captured 763 of her blockade runners, with $26, 000,000 worth of arms and ammunition. She fitted out her Alabama to prey on our shipping, and joined Spain and France on an attack on Mexico, ready to march on us if the occasion presented itself, and if it had not been for Erickson and his "cheese box," she probably would have dismembered our country. So Eng land forgot, or ignored all th6 principles she held so dear in order to get market for her ships. She built up a great business and has it yet. Senator Frye animadvert ed with some severity upon the system of compulsory pilotage due3, which he char acterized as a great hardship on shipping. Senator McMillan said there was mneh difference of opinion in regard to such due?, and it was not clear that they should be abolished. "With regard to the work of the committee on commerce, he (McMil lan) said, during the list con fe ress it had made eighty reports on a great variety of 3ubjjOta, and the merchant marine had not been neglected. With regard to the river and harbor bill, he thought it one of the most useful pad beneficial bills with which congress ha3 to deal, and the criti cisms made on the river and harbor bills would apply to these bills also. Without reaching a conclusion on the rule, the senase went into executive session, and soon afterwards adjourned. House of Representatives. Washington, Jan. 9.—Mr. Kasson offered the preamble to bis resolution, reciting that certain foreign governments with which the United States have treaties, se curing to the Uited States such treatment as is assured the most favored nation in ragard to the importation of American produoe end manufactures, have adopted an apparent violation of suoh treaties, and ' prohibited the introduction of certain food products of the United States under regu lations that are not applied to the like pro ductions of other nations, and directing the committee on foreign affairs to inquire into the facts and report to the legislation. Other action should be taken by congress or executive, to secure a due observance of such treaties, and protect the rights of United States citizens in respect thereto, whether by retaliatory legislation or oth erwise. Mr. Deuster offered a resolution direct ing the committee of commerce to investi gate the exolusion of American pork from Germany and France, and recommend such legislation as is warranted by the facts. Referred. Mr. Gibson asked leave to offer a reso lution, declaring all laws of the federal government, authorizing the sale of intox icating liquors in states, wholesale or re tail, be made dependant on the parties au thorized first obtaining license from state 'iuthorities. Mr. Deuster objected. Mr. Slocum, from the committee on military affair?, reported the bill for the relief of Fitz John Porter. Referred to the committee of the whole. Mr. Slooum also reported back the reso lution calling on the secretary of war for information of average number of commissioned ofheers of the army from the l:h of March, 1857, to March 4, 1SG1, and from March 4, 1877, to Ma.roh 4, 1881, together with a statement of the number tried by court martial, the number of convictions in which the findings of the court were disapproved and (sentence re mitted. Adopted. Mr. Steele, from "he samejj committee, reported a bill to provide for the pay and muster of e ;rtain officers and men of the volunteer forces. Referred'to the commit tee of the whole. Mr. Vance, chairman of the commit tee on patents, reported a bill to enable the United States courts in casss of im proper grants of let'ers patent by reason of fraud or misrepresentation, to declare a patent void on application of the attorney general. Mr. Slocumfrom the committee on ship building and ship owning interests, re ported that the Dingly shipping bill was unanimously agreed to by the commit tee. Referred to the committee of the whole. The speaker laid before the house a message from the president submitting the annual report of the Mississippi river com mission. Mr. Willis moved its reference to the committee on rivers and harbors, con tend ing that it was ths committee which had the proper jurisdiction of the subject. Mr. King, chairman of the committee of the Mississippi levees, submitted a motion for the reference oi the message to that committee, to whioh had invariably been referred the report cf the commis- Bion. It was not a show committee, but o.'irt charged with a grave and serious duty. The committee on rivers and hirbors had all 4 it could do to consid er the different appropriations of the va rious rivers and harbors, and the question of the Mississippi improvement should receive the deliberate attention of the committee on the Mississippi levees. Mr. Blanohard pretested against the reference of the message to the committee on the Mississippi levees, on the ground that they could only take the report of the commission and oonsider it, but when the point of appropriation was reached they would have to stop and knock at the door of the river and harbor committee and ask it to report to the house the sum of money to be used in the improvement of the riv er. The committee on Mississippi levees had nothing to do with it would be a vain useless and idle thing to refer to it the report of the commission. Mr. Reagan favored a decision of the jurisdiction over the subject between the two committees, and the gentleman, who desired to have the whole subject referred to the committee on the Mississippi levees, were taking the very course whioh would lead to the defeat of this great measure of improvement. Mr. O'Niell, of Missouri, said he desired to prevenl the calamity which happened to the last congress, when progress on the Mississippi river was stopped and choaed on account of the appropriation being in she river and harbor bill. Mr.Reagan said that he knew where these stoppages were, he thought the Missis sippi should be provided for in a separate bill, but from hia experience he came to the conclusion that whenever that was at tempted there would be an niter failure of every appropriation. Mr. Young supported the motion to re fer it. to the committee or. Mississippi ievoes. Mr. Belford Paul, thiB discussion showed the dammibie and infernal character of the rules under which the hoaso actoi. There was a committee on ways and means, composed of the brains -->f the house. Then there was a co rnui"'to on appropriations, composed of the whit-j buttoned mandarins. [L-ughter ] The other committees were stares and com pelled to bow ;heir necks to ask the speak er to recognize them. It ri3 a spectacle, sweet as the Hebrews ob?er»red when they saw the oil running down the beard of Aaron, to see the Democratic brethren quarreling over ths reference of the great subject. He was in favor of voting, not $1,000,000, but $30,\KX),0()0 to accomplish this advantage for the people. The treas nry to-dsy is governed by New York in fluence whioh held in its vaults hundreds of millions of dollars kept there, in his judgment, for the sole purpose of advanc ing finances of New York and Pennsyl vania. But the house to-day is in the control of the south and west, and he thanked God for it. The oountry had submitted to the dominion of two states and a little section not as large as one county in his state,long enough. Now let the southern and western men stand together and say they would unlock the vault of the national treasury and nse the money to improve the water ways of the country to the end that the interest of the people shall not be overborne and torn down by the railroad corporations in the republic Every committee should be given the privilege of reporting at any time, and the members should have the right to call up measures at convenient seasons. Two men under the present rules controlled the house, the speaker and the gentleman from Indiana, Holman, who executed the veto power by way of con stant objection. The house refused by yeas, 124, to nays, 143, to refer the message to the committee on Mississippi levees, but referred it to the committee on river and harbors. The speaker laid before the house a mes sage from the president transmitting a draft to allow Indian homestead entries in certain oases without the payment of fees or commissions. Roferred. Also, a message in regard to a resolution respecting the alleged distribution of cir culars in some of the departments asking (ElobE. If or contributions for political puro"* -. and the reply of the secretary of siace thereto. Referred. Also, a letter from the secretary of the treasnry, asking that the deficiency in the appropriation of $150,000 printing one ano' two dollar treasury notes be granted. Referred. Mr. Bsgley introduced a bill appropri ating §130,000 for the statue of Liberty, enlightening New York harbor. Mr. Cox, of North Caroline,offered a res olution, instructing the committee on ap propriations to report the number of em ployes in the house, the stains from which they were appointed, and the necessity of increasing or diminishing the number. Re ferred . The speaker laid before the house the president's message in regard to the Hen nepin canal. Referred to the committee on railways and canals. Mr. Ochiltree offered a resolution, which was adopted, deolaring that the house had heard with deep regret of the death of the • minent German statesman, Edward Las ker. His death would not alone be mourned by the people of his native land, where his firm and constant exposition, und hi3 devotion to free and liberal ideas materially advanced the social, political and economic conditions of those people, but by the lovers of liberty throughout the world. It wa3 further resolved that a copy of the resolutions be forwarded to the family of the deceased, as well as to the minister of the United States, resident it the capital of the German empire, and to be, by his own communication through the legitimate channels*, to the presiding officer of the legislative body of whioh he was a member. On motion of Mr. MoCord a bill was passed for the holding of terms of the circuit and district courts in the northern district of Iowa. The house then Adjourned. ANOTHER RAILWAY UOBROB. Two Mfii Instantly Killed and Fire Seri ously Injured—The Men in a Sauu Cut ure Kun Down by a Passeneer Train on the Pennsylvania Road. Pittsbuhg, Jan. 9.—Brinion station on the Pennsyvania reilroad, eight miles east of ths city, was the scene this evening of a terrible accident that resulted in in stantly killing two men and seriously in juring five other?, one of whom has since died. All day a large force of men have been employed on the Pittsburg division of the Pennsylvania railroad clearing the snow from the track at a cut just east of Brintcn. Some fifteen or twenty men were engaged thia morning at 7 o'clock, when the accommodation suddenly rounded the bend at Binton, and before all the men could get oat of the cut they were run down. The train stopped as quickly as possibk', and b:\oked to the scene of the accident where ii terrible sight met the gaze of the passengers and train men. The dead and dying were scattered along the track for fifty yards. Bodies of two men were found badly mangled and life wa3 already extinct; five others were badly injured and one has since died in the hos pital. The names of the killed are not known as the men were only engaged to day and were not even known to their fel low workmen. The injured are as follows: Frank Callica, '21 years, single, back hurt, dangerous. Herman Sands, 30 year?, single, right leg broken. Frank Chilli, 28 years, married, danger ous scalp wound and left knee and arm fractured. John Fisher, thirty years, 6iugle, right knee fractured. An unknown, back hurt, was uncon scious when found and died in the hospi tal. After the acoident the men crawled out of the snow in all directions, and it is not unlikely the bodies of others may be dis covered . The acoident was oaused by the failure of the men to have a lookout to warn them of the approaching trains, and as it was dark and a locomotive was stand ing near by with steam escaping, it made it impossible to hear or see the train com ing^ CLOTHING.
