The Enormous Shrinkage in the Values of
Stocks and Bo»dB---A Table that Suggests
More tlian L&ujfuaga can Express---Wlio
has Lost the Money?— Probability of
Lower Prices for Wheat.
[Special Telegram to the Globe. I
New Yobk, Jan. 20.—The Sun in its Wall
street column, will say to-morrow: "Upon
becoming convinced that there was no use
trying to revive the Wall street corpse,
Mr. Gould seems to have lost his head
and began to talk. Almost every day
brought out an interview with him. New
if a man like him begins to talk, it is in
variably a sign of weakness on his part. He
talks only when he ss powerless to act. It i 3
well known that financiers and railroad
ma^natos haie the pross,and have recourse
to i- only in extremes. The moment so
called big men Degin to talk, look out.
There must be something wrong. From
the failure of Gould to turn the natural
tide of the market originated the Wall
street rumar that ha was badly hurt, and
that he does not know how to stave off the
dan,; that banking institutions will call
in sojue of their loans to him.
Talking uj.oj this subject Signor Moro-
Biai .said on Saturday: "All the
talk ie absurd. Nobody knows
Mr. Gonld's position and resources
better than I do,aiid I can assure you that
he is better ofT then ever. He has Isbb
stock then he ever hi;d, and whatever he
has is paid Tor. Whenever h6 hands me a
package and rays: "Morosini, put it in
the vault," I know it is a new lot of securi
ties which will never ace daylight again till
they 6how a big profit. No one has any
idea of the immense wealth of this man.
His income i 3 perfectly fabulous, and it is
constantly accumulating. He does
not spend anything at all, and interest
and dividends constantly heaped go
into fresh investments. The idea that Mr.
Gould is speculating as he did formerly is
erroneous. He goes into the market now
a-days only when he wants to buy some
thing at a cheap price, or to sell at a high
price—something which he has got in the
vault and which shown him a good profit
in."
The crippling process in Wall street al
though slop has been remarkably com
plete. First of all the fleeced lords de
parted for parts unknown. Then
the most prominent men began
to suffer, Villard, Pullman, Porter,
D. O. Mills and other wealthy and influen
tial operators were more or less hurt till
the name of Jay Gonld himself, as we have
seen, began to be mentioned. One man
alone seems to have a monopoly of good
luck. In spite of the fact that he has been
intimately associated with at least eight
enterprises, all of which proved to be dead
failures, his name has not yet been men
tioned among the sufferers. This man is
Mr. C. F. Woerishoffer and the wonder is
who has lost money in
the following stocks and bonds
of which he has been the leading spirit:
Securites. Highest. Now.
Denver&R. G. stock 112^ 2S
D.&R. G.bonds 115 85
D. & R. G. Western Union
(subscription,etc.) 50 p. c. disc'nt.
Colorado coal 67 14
Texas & St. L. stock 47 3
Texas & St. L. bonds ... 80 40
North River construction \29% 10
Ontario & Western 42 10
West Shore stock 36 8
West Shore bonds 80 50
Mexican National subscription
bo ads and stock 105 £7
Mexican construction 150 15
The figures are takea here in round
numbers, but they are correct enough to
give a general idea of the immense losses
incurred. Out of whose pockets did these
millions come?
The grain and provision market was
almost as badly demoralized as the stock
market, and the outlook does not promise
any improvement. According to a Chi
cago telegram Mr. Drake, chief of the in
spection department in that city, says: "I
expect to see whest sell very much cheaper
than it i 3 selling now. The elevator
room is neariy all taken. There
is not roam left for 3,000,000
bushels more. Thi3 will be taken in all
likelihood, most of it, by corn in the next
thirty days, but wheat will still keep com
ing. There will ba no place to put it. It
will have to be sold. The demurrage oth
erwise will eat it up. I have seen the time
when potatoes were worth one dollar a
buchel when they sold on track at 30c, be
cause there was no place to put them. It
will be the same way with wheat.
It will arrive here and will
be put up and sold for what it
will bring. The visible supply is larger
than ever, and the foreign demand abso
lutely nil.
BUTUS HATCH ON THE SITUATION.
[Special Telecram to the Globe.]
New Yobk, Jan. 20.—The condition of
affairs in Wall street was anxiously dis
oussed to-night at the resorts of the stook
brokers, The situation is regarded with
the utmost gravity. Rufns Hatch, presi
dent of the stock exchange, says, Wall
street is in the condition of a crowded
theater where a fight is going on in the
gallery and some chap puts his head in at
the door and shouts fire. The fighters and
everybody else go for the doors and want
to get oaL As a matter of fact the coun
try is in a prosperous condition,
but there is a very large bear
element and the newspapers gereraliy
seem to be influenced by the same feeling,
and merely because there is [a depression
in Wall street, where at best money values
are of an artifioai character. They seem
to thmk that ruin is impending over the
country. I believe that unles3 the press
takes a more hopefal view a panic is not
among the improbabilities, but there is no
actual reason why such a thing should re
suit. There's a superabundance of money
in the country. Millions oan be had for
investm ont at [email protected]£ per oent; the crops
are exceedingly large and savings banks
in good condition. Everything is in a
sound condition except perhaps in Wall
street, and there they are hallowing "lire."
JAY GOULD AND THE BKAHB.
It is generally expected that the fight
between Jay Gould and the bears will be
renewed [to-morrow, and it will wax hotter
than ever. Gould's friends mention that
he was never in better condition than now
to stand the pressure, but his enemies
point to the terrible shrinkage in values
of the stocks he is carrying, aDd ask how
long he oan oontinue to
wage a war against such
fearful odds. There are rumors also of
impending failures among grain men, but
these cannot be traced to any authentic
sources.
It is not thought the failure of Wm. H.
Gnion will have any serious effeot, as his
liabilities, although large, are pretty thor
onghly distributed among those abund
antly able to bear the losses. The firm of
Williams & Goion is said to be nowiae
affected by tqe failure.

Postmaster Lounsberry, of Bismarck;
has reoeived permission from the depart

Wm.Nye, who has recently been un
hinged from a comic sheet out in the Soap

An emigrant and freight train on the

dragged with it.
O. E. Sauter, a young attorney and pop
ular society man of Grafton, cast shadows
over several hopeful hearts there by going
to lowa for a bride. Last week he was
married to Miss Mamie McCarthy, at St.
Aupgar. About the same time Miss Elis
Upham took the porcine name of Hogg,
John N., all at Grafton. The man is all
right in spite ol his name.
The report of the county commissioners

declined to do go, stating that he was
drunk and that he would see us later.'
Charges were ordered to be presented
against him to the governor.
The Yankton Press and Dakotian has this
information, which perhap3 explains the
recent migration eastward from the
capital: A delegation of Bismarck men,
under the leadership of Dr. Burleigh, went
to Washington last week to labor at the
national capital for the passage of an act
leagalizing the capital commission act of
the Dakota legislature. Alex. McKenzie,
Hannafin and Raymond, of Bismarck, are
in the party. They will also labor to defeat
statehood.
This is a statement of the growth of
Mandan, the aspiring rival ef Bismarck:
In 1881 it had 500 inhabitants and to-day
it has between 2,500 and 3,000 inhabit
ants, with a main streot a mile long, and
twenty-five feet lots selling for $2,500.
Many buildings are to be seen here that
would discount those of an eastern town.
One of its hotels cost $65,000. Seventy
five buildings were put up this summer,
and the number next year is expected to
be a great deal larger. There are five
churches, one public school, four hotels,
three banks, and other lines of business
that represent over fifty firms.
Mrs. Merrittand Mrs. Mitchell, of Chi
cago, last spring oame out to one of the
oentral counties and took pre-emption
claims, which they staid on six months
and claim to have had a very pleasant
time of it. Having proved up on these,
they have gone back to Chicago to spend
the winter. In the early spring, they will re
turn and take homesteads. They will spend
six months on these, then commute and
pay up and each will be the owner of 320
acres of good lands, made in two sum
mers ?nd the expenditure of a few hun
dred dollars. Probably they will have
tree claims also. This shows what ladies
oan do.
The Grafton Neios has this to say of the
Dakota wheat inspectors in its report of
the late meetings which the gentleman
reported as so satisfactory to the farmers:
"The Dakota wheat inspectors took the
floor in succession. They added nothing
to the weight of the meeting, and failed to
convince listeners either of their own abil
ity or desire to accomplish anythiag for
the accommodation of the question. They
seemed like nice fellows who thought when
they took the position that they had a nice
job, but had found it somewhat trouble
some, and now wished that they were well
out of it. Thay seemed to feel very sure,
however, that everything waß lovely, and
that it was a great shame to give them so
much trouble."
Many stories are told of the energy and
pluck exhibited by young ladies in coming
to Dakota and holding claims, and scour-
I ing improved health and finances. Miss
1 Hattie Rineheart, of Gibson, 111., came to
j Dakota less than a year and a half ago in
I very poor health. She took a homestead
: and tree claim and rapidly gained in
i health as she inhaled the famed ozone.
! After a time she decided to commute on
; her homestead and take a pre-emption.
[ While living on her claim with another
lady, one night a playful zephyr blew over
and tore to pieces her shanty and diffused
all but their sight apparel over the prairK
They were a mile or more from any neigh
bors bat gophers and prairie dog?, but tuey
gathered up such pieces of clothing as they
could find and went to the nearest habita
tion. She soon had her shanty replaced.
Recently she proved up on her pre-emption
and sold it for §900 cash, and ha 3 gone on
a visit to her Illinois friends. She still
holds 320 acres of choice land and has
fully regained her health. There are many
similar instances.
A gay and naugLty young man at Wah
! peton some time since captured the tender
affections of a too confiding young damsel,
and created the impression in her mind
that matrimony was not remote. The too
frequent result followed, and in th» ab-
S sence of connubial relations, the trustful
maiden became a maternal parent. About
this time the young man found it conveni
ent or advisable to travel. The young
lady became indignant and employed the
officers of the law to hunt the absconding
lover. Ha was found and brought back to
Wahpeton, and a night in jail convinced
him that his best course out of the trouble
was to supply the needed link in paternal
relationship. E« faced the music bat the
young lady very strangely refused to ac
cept tha compromise. She chose to re
main single, but insisted that he should be
made to support the offspring. So the
matter stands.

request. I question the right of the bishop to
silence a man who speaks his convictions. Had
he assumed the tone of command I should huva
disputed him. As it was, my superior only 6aid
he considered it wise to put off the delivering of
the lectures, and I agreed with him. I most
certainly intend to resume the teachings when
the proper time comes. I have merely adjourned
them for the time ((being. There was no de
structive intentions in my teaching3,and my mo
tive was to assist those needing help. I firmly
believe that in a peculiar and unique seEHS the
Bible is God's word. I might have possessed a
spirit of iconoclasm, but that is now a thing of
the past.

LIVINGSTON, M. T.
Tha Denver "of the Northwest—ls tho terminal
point of three divisions of the Northern Pacific
Railroad. It is located aa tho geographical cci.
tor of that line. It hae had & most rcarreloro
growth.

Tho BrtUL-jh Lin 3 to the Yellowstone National
Park ha 3 its tenaißal point here, and all tho im
rsonsd ravel to that famons resort ie compelled
to stop hare from a few hours' time to a number
of days. Tho principal shops of the r&iiroafl
company between Erainerdand tha Pacific Ocaaa
are now being built hero. They will give em
j ployment to probably ICOO men. Pine timber is
plenty in tbo snrroundinjj eoßntry, cud various
i sawmills in the iicraedlato -ricirity .' tha towc
furnish work for hoets of empioytn. The valleys
of the Yellowstone, Shields an' i Booth ri7ars are
I vast and vt-ry rich, ia agricultural resources, and
Si-s well settled. Their trade is entirely tributary
to Lmngßton, whilfl magnificent cartlo ranchci
abound in every direction; -vast mines of true bi
mminona coal, which can be coked for !}■£ cents
per ton; also rich iron mines are vnthin tiro to
four miles from town, ard ritj beirg worked.
1 The gold placer mines of Emigrant Gulch, Baai
Crevice, Mill Cieek, and Eight-Milo Creek, are
all in the Yellowstone Valley just south of Liv
ingston, directly tributary to it. Mid are being
actively worked. That wonderful rich qaarta
country, silver end gold, known na the Clark's
Fork District, is south of town, and Livingstoa
is the headquarters and outfitting point. Im
mense deposits of limestone, sandstone, clay and
fine brick clay, are but two miles distant, and the
manufacture of lime is already an important in
dustry, this being the first point after leaving Due
luth on the east, 1,000 miles, where lime rock it
found. There are Borne 200 buildings in conrs
of construction. Tha Park Addition on which
tho new 17,000 school house is expected to be
built is the most desirable residence property in
town, while the Palace Addition contains the
cheapest business property offered for Bale—the
tendency of business and business improvement*
being largely in that direction. There are two
banks, the First National and a private bank; two
newspapers, one daily and one weekly. A smelt
ing and reduction company is also in process of
formation, to be located here. Thero are many
chances for business enterprises of various kinds.
Lika all new countries, the oi portunities for
profitable employment are very good and work
men as well as men of capital will find plenty of
chances in and around the town. Livingston ie
less than a year old, yet it is probably the second
largest city in Montana: It is not surprising
when one considers that agriculture alone haa
made Fargo; tha Northern Pacific company'« rail
road shops, Brainerd; summer visitors, Saratoga;
lumber, Eau Claire; silver and gold mines, Den
ver; cattle Kansas City; iron and coal, Pittsburg;
that b combination of all of these factors as is
found here should, within the. nozt five years
make this point a city of at least 50,000 peoplo.
The prediction may seem a wild one, but we have
yet to see or know anyone who, a few years ago,
was accused of being wild then in their predic
tions, who predicted one-half of what has actual
ly occurred in the Northern Pacific country. Wa
sold lot- in Fargo a few years ago for $100 each
that would sell to-day for $10 000; acres at James
town for $15 per acre (cost 48 cents) that to-day
Bell for $1,500, axd are built on. We have acres
to-day in Fargo which cost 48% cents that are
now in town lots selling at the rate of $1,250 per
acre. So lots at Livingston which we now offer
at from $25 to $250 will, inside of 8 years, sell at
from $500 to $10,000 apiece. They have done so
at all good points on the road in tho past, and
they will in the —particularly at an excep
tionally good point like this. We advance price
in July.

"By a thorough knowledge of the natural
laws which govern the operations of digestion
and nutrition, and by a careful application of the
fine properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps
has provided our breakfast tables with a deli
cately flavored beverage which may save ua
many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judicious
use of such articles of diet that a constitution
may be gradually built up until strong enough to
resist every tendency of disease. Hundreds of
subtile maladies are floating around us ready to
attack wherever there is a weak point. We may
escape many a fatal shaft by keeping ourselves
well fortified with pure blood and a properly
nourished frame."— Civil Service Gazette.

Ulcerated Piles, has been discovered by Dr. Wil

Indian Ointment. A single box has cured tin
worst chronic cases of '.'■ oars' standing. No
one need suffer five iuicutos after applying this
wonderful soothing medicine. Lotions and In

Ointment absorbs the tumors, allays the intense
itching, (particularly at night after getting «*arm
