sw vt aw&y ihe ballots, the defeated candi
dates had shaken hands, and the stormy
soences of the f! '-tion were forgotten by

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

They report that the visible supply would

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

combat the position that Schwartz <fc Du

large holdings of January. At all events

per 100 ponnds. Ribs and

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.

| 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.

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

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
