CHICAGO.
Chicago, -Tan. 25.—Henry Clews & Co.,
of New York, wired to Schwartz & Dapee
to-night: '"The market opened with a
materially im '•oved tone, retained that
character a! mo ill day notwithstanding
the >.: -ction of the Chicago
trunk !im i rnioh, asit adjourned
sin<3 • evidence that the vexed
questions in dispute wero not likely to be
settled at once. The annonu cement
of this fact caused a general
raid on the Jiarket to be concerted. Its
full force struck the exchanae jast prior
to the ciose, and as it was a desperate and
detsrminod move, a lower range of prices
■was a natural result." »
There was quite a bull movement in
grain and provision?, both in New York
and Chicago. The short interests having
become bnrdensomeiy large, increased
foreign and domestic baying for long ac
count ovjsed quite a stampede amongst
the bears, whose effort 3 were to evan up
their oantracts. During the process a
lively upturn in prices took
place. Wheat was fairly well
sustained until the end of the day'a basi
ness. Speculators favor wheat and pro
visions, but corn is gouorally regarded as
high enough for the present, considering
the incxeas'e of the supply constantly pour
ing in at Chicago. The markets all
started high! r. For the first time in Bixty
days the shorts in the wheat pit were
somewhat alarmed. May wheat, which
closed sit 'JB}-|j!s, and which yestyrday
morning sold at 95% c, touched VJ%c.
This was an advance for twenty-focr hours
of oc. Even Brega, one of the mo3t de
termined of wheat shorts, declares that not
sinca 1878 has there been any demand
for on'- spring wheat, and who has been
preaohing 80 cents as a fair price for May
—evea Breeze was thrown into a little
panic and was a buyers at the very top
iigTire^." Poole, Kent & Co. andJ. B.
Hobbs &, Co. were active buyers all morn
ing. The cables were higher. Beerbohm
quoted wheat and corn "steady and better
tone,' 1 and the other cables said both
grains were in better demand and higher.
The markets in New York were higher,
and advices from there say that a consid
erable quantity was taken for
export. Ail explanation, too,
from Mr. Walker, the New York
statistician, made it appear that while he
'made the decrease in visible supply of
wheat yesterday only 115,000 bushels, as
there were over 300,000 bushels of wheat
lying in vessels at New York already
cleared for Europe, but which had not left
ap to Wednesday night, the deorease was
really over 500,000 bushels.
The receipts were small this morning,
•only 43 cars of wheat and 189 of corn. Of
these latter 109 graded No. 2.
Corn was relatively not as strong as
wheat, for it advanced only i<c, touching
59*4 c. This was, however, because the pit
was dull. Provisions and wheat absorbed
attention.
Wheat for May opened at an advance
over last night of %o. It advanced to
99}40, and then as provisions were break
ing and as some buyers had turned sellers,
the prices declined. At 1 o'clock, how
ever, ih closed at 99j^c, the highest point
of the day. Corn surprised everybody.
It was not as strong as the other articles
on the list, and yet everything waa in its
favor. Receipts were much smaller than
anticipated. Those who are behind corn
are, however, not balling it. They say
they do not wish its merits to become ob
scured by any snch rapid advanoe as took
place during the manipulation of the Jan
uary clique. If the advance which they
expect comes gradually, it will, they say,
bring no increase in reoepts. Consequent
ly, a gradual advance rather than a great
spurt is what they want.
There were only 16,000 hogs at the
yards, and both packers and shippers were
bidding for them. It was no wonder, un
der BUtih circumstances, that prices ad
vanced. May pork went from $16.30 to
$16 35, and then lost nearly all the ad
vaue. Ju9t before the close it recovered.
May lard fell from $9.40 down to $9.32^
and back to $9.37}£ again. There is, saiil
3 packer, no great shortage in provisions.
There are more sellers, of course, all the
while, but the present advance is not due
to any squeeze. Hogs are high and going
higher. They have all season been so high
that packo^i laid down their product at a
loss. Unless pork and meat go a deal
higher all manufacturers will, at the end
of the season, be heavy losers. It is
marvelous but nevertheless trae that all
packers. from the highest to
the littlest were deceived this year
on the hopj crop. It has turned out
Bam!!«r 3 great deal than th&y expected.
Packers refusing to Fell their product at
present prices; henca the advance. At the
1 o'clock clo3e May wheat was di)% ; May
corn 59c; May pork $16.27^; May lard
$9.37^£. Prices broke on the call. The
presence had apparently been a little too
high to be su#tained,especiallyonwheat,and
it dropped from 993^0 to 98%0 for May
closing at 99c: on the curb after call it was
selling at 99j^c; corn broke to 08^0 for
May. May pork closed at $J6.25: May
lard at $9.32>£.
Critiendet & Harvey Bay: "Wheat has
averaged stronger and higher today.
Cables were better, and fears of. a poor
crop in California stimulates a great deal
of local and outside buying, and sent
prices up fully lj^o above yesterday' 3
closing, J^o on heavy realizations by local
holders, and closing Bteady with rather a
confident feeling. We are believers in
wheat at prices now prevailing, and think
it but a question of time when we shall see
much better prices, but would
work carefully on the long side and
buy on declines and weak place.*. We
look for a little easier market to-morrow,
but if it comes wonld get in on any rea
sonable decline. Corn has proven less ac
tive than wheat, but has a firm undertone
and finds plenty of buyers anywhere
around 58% c for May. The local crowd
sell freely on the first signs of weakness,
Lv!. act rather timid and buy as readi!',
when the market resists the selling raids.
We look for better prices soon in corn, and
believe purchases made at current prices
will make money. The closing was firm.
Oata were aotive and firm, and trading
largely local. We regard them good prop
erty, but a little slow. Provisions opened
higher, and for the first half hour it was
difficult to make trades wiih any satisfac
tion owing to the excited condition of the
market. Bat after the majority of orders
were filled a steadier feeling prevailed.
The closing prices were some better than
yesterday. The market acts higher, but
ie seems we should get some reaction be
fore buying much. Receipts of hogs 18,
--000; estimated for to-morrow 10,000.
McCoimick, Kennett & Day:
Wheat was irregular and higher owi-jg
to better cables and light
receipts. Crop reports from California
and persistent .buying by several strong
houses for long account alarmed the phorts
and caused a rush to cover. On call ihfire
wat a good deal of realizing, and the mar
ket eased off, but soon reacted, closing
firm at 99c bid. The writer advises fol
lowing the lougs on soft spots, and money
will be m&db ia buying wheat fct 983.
Crop scarce and an improved demand are
sure to come during the next sixty days.
Eventually, if the new crop looks well
prices will go lower, but the chances of a
5c advance before a 5o decline are about
10 to 1."
Receipts of cattle at the yards are rather
on the increase and are much larger than
expected for to-day and yesterday, yet at
the close to-da/ rccuptß were nearly G,OOO
less than foi the corresponding period last
week. Lhero were fully 10,000 on sale,
including the fresh arrivals and thope left
over last night, and trade ruled rather
slow in fair to common shipping cattle,
but steady on the best. Some salesmen
predicted lower prices in common and
medium cattle before the day was over.
It should be remembered thai,
a week ago to-day and Saturday a week
ago common and half fat cattle sold low
est, some lot 3of 1,050 to 1,100 pounds sel
ling as low as [email protected], yet no one
looked for as low prices to-day, as the
same sorts have sold as high as $5.25^
5.50 thid we&k, but the chances were they
would Bell lower. The demand for butch
ers' stock ia steady and price? ruled
strong. There is a fair business in feeders
and stockers, and prices remain high.
The receipts were again light, showing
a falling off of about 6,000 as compared
with tho corresponding day last weeK
and about 34,000 less for the week so far.
Trade opened brick and prices advanced
[email protected] all around, the greatest apprecia
tion being ia good heavy and choice pack
ing grades. Toward noon there was a fall
ing off in the demand, when values were
not quite as strong as they opened.
Chicago financial.
| Special Telegram to the Globe. 1
Chicago, Jan. 25.^ —Business in banking cir
cles continues quiet. Offerings of A 1 and gilt
edge paper were only moderate, and as the sup
ply of loanable funds seeeking employment
ia pretty large, applicants in good
standing found no difficulty in obtaining accom
modation at [email protected] per cent. The clearings of the
associated banks were $5,901,000, against J6,
666,000 yesterday, $6,805,000 Wednesday, ?7,
--192,C00 Tuesday, and $7,426,008 Monday. The
market for eastern exchange was firm and steady,
with sales between city banks at 60c premium
for $1,000. Orders for money were again
meager. About noon stock circles were agitated
by a lot of bear telegrams from New York. The
two following were received over Schwartz &
Dupee's special wire:
Lawson, Douglas & Co : Gouid appears to
be selling everything while bidding up the mar
ket. The Yillard's will make a further decline.
We strongly and confidently advise selling
everything on rollers and predict lower figures
in a few days.
Henry, Clews & Co.: There is no good in
Western Union. Gould will try and unload here
after on all opportunities, and this stock will at
times be a drug on the market, and to pull it
down when otherwise it would advance.
NEW YORK.

New York, Jan. 25. —The amrket has I
beea wo!l manipulated to-day. Prices
we>-e strong at the opening. Oregon
Treoscoiitinental they marked up to 19.
I: i as been a waiting market, pending the
result ef the meeting of the Western I
Trunk Liae association. There was less
activity than for the previous days of the
week. Northern Pacific preferred waa not
slow in responding, and good buying of
all dividend payers was observed. The
Grangers were all siroog but very aniet.
Reports were circulated that a settlement
would be effected to-day, and St. Paul
was easily lifted, giving the bears an
opportunity to cell, whish they availed
themselves of without delay. A drop in
Oregon railway of four points was almost
unnoticed, the balance doing so well. The
advance was not maintained, though at 1
o'clock Oregon Transcontinental was sell
ing at seventeen ani the general market
was decidedly feeble. There was a good
deal of discouraging talk regarding Ore
gon Transcontinental affairs, but it is hard
to imagine what new stories can be set
afloat now. It should be allowed to rest.
Reports that the Western Union managers
were to receive the attention of congress
did Lot affect the stock. Before the
day closed there was an improvement
from t^ c lowest point. A glance over the
list will chow little change in prices for the
last twenty-fonr hours.
It has looked a little to-day as though
the manipulators for an advance were
having rather a tedicus time in accom
plishing their ends. Outside support is
much wanted, bat it fails to respond.
Chicago & Alton advanced to 138 at the
la.-t. The feeling was quite unsettled
when bnsiness oeased, with a very ragged
look to Villardf. West Shore bonds were
comparatively neglected and showed but
little change in price. The Gould stocks
were well supported and the coalers dull.
It is reported that there is a bull pool in
Laeka*anna. Daring the first hourHollins
& Co. were buyers of Lackawanna and
Northern Pacifio; Freeman & Co. of St.
Paul, and Northern Pacific. Prominent
commission houses are feeling more bull
ish, and advising customers by wire and
letter not get short of the market, and
give the opinion the liquidation has but
little left to fsed upon, in stocks. The
short interest in Northern Pacific is again
large. It loaned at 3 64, and Canada Pa
cifio at 1 t>4, to-day. The Western Trunk
Line association adjourned without ac
complishing anything. Louisville & Nash
ville earnings the second week decreased
$20,000.

A Long. Chapter of Outrageous Doings
by the Criminal Class.
'• ANOTHEK SHOCKING ArFAIB.
Hicksville, L. 1., Jan. 25. —At about
half past six this morning, Solan Spiagne,
a well-to-do farmer of East Meadow, •went
as nsnul to the barn to milk the cows and
I feed the horses. Ha just reaohed the barn
when a tall, elim mulatto attacked him
with a fish plate, nsed in coupling railroad
tracks, and striking him several murder
ous blows on the head, left him for dead
and iiiade his way to the house. Here he
saw Mrs. Sprague in the kitchen, struck
her one blow and demanded money. She
told him to get it out of the diawer, and
then ran screaming from the house. Be
fore she had gone very far, the man over
took end passed her, soon getting oat of
sight. Some neighbors hearing Mrs.
Spragu6'a cries hurried to the
spot and found Sprague lying in a
pool of blood near the barn.
A general alarm was sounded, and the
farmers of Hicksville, Hempstead ? West
bury and Janesville hitched up their horses
and started in all directions scouring the
country for the assassin. The man whom
Mrs. Sprague describes as a tall, slim,
young looking mnllatto, is supposed to be
the same who attempted a burglary at
South Oyster Bay on Wednesday night.
He is supposed to be hiding in the neigh
borhood. All points of the island has been
furnished with his description. There is
great excitement all through Queens
county in consequence of this third simi
lar outrage following so quickly upGn the
Mayberg and Townsend affairs. Mr.
Sprague and wife are about fifty years of
age. The physicians give no hopes of the
recovery of Sprague.
The mnllatto has been arrested, identi
fied and jailed.
Charles A. Smith is the name of the
negro who committed the assault. He
lived at Poverty Hollow, Oyster Bay. A
strong guard escorted him to jail, as it wi 8
feared he might be lynched, as threats of
violence were freely made by the crowd.
Smith is fully identified by Mrs. Sprague.
He is known to be a disreputable char
acter, and it is thought he may be im
plicated in both the May bee murder and
the Townsend assault. Sprague is very
low.
While the terrible wounds on the head
of Sprague were being dressed, he sudden
ly rtse up and vomited a fall pint and a
half of blood. The doctors said they were
glad of it, but still have little or no hopss
of his recovery. Mrs. Sprague, in her
statement, says: '"As I .stepped into the
kitchen the dog barked;* it is a very small
dog, and but for that strange, thing I
might not have noticed the man so
promptly. He said, 'I want money.' I
supposed my husband was in the barn,
and my first impulse was to scream. I
did so, and I . tried .to rash by
the colored man into the yard and
got as far as the stoop when ha laid hold
of me. He clutched me by the hair and
pulled a handful oat by the roots. I
struggled but it was no use. He dealth
me a blow in the mouth with his fiat which
loosened my teeth, and I saw fire. This
brought us back into the kitchen. He
was a powerful colored man, not tall but
very stout. He said again i':/.
"GIVE MB MONEY OB I'LL MCBDKE YOU."
I replied, "you ban have all the money
in the house, but tell me have you hurt my
husband?"
"No," be replied, "I have not seen him."
I thought it strange that my husband
had not been attracted by the incessant
barking of the dog. I went into the ait
ting room, took my purse from a bureau
drawer and handed it to the man. The
purse contained $38. Whan the man had
gone away I ran oat to summon help and
fell on the ice. I hurt my side badly. 5'
The barn presented the appearance oil a
[ slaughter bouse. The body of Sprgue Jay
I against a bag filled with grain. The bag
was bloody on'one side. Sprague waa not
dead, and he seemed to recognize the
voices of the men, though he could not
speak. There was blood everywhere. Near
the double door there was a great pool of
blood frozen into* ice. Spragne lost so
much blood in this spot that ran over
the door jamb and discolored the ground
outside. There was blood on a tab under
the wagon and on the right hind wheel of
the wagon. Sprague was covered with
blood and both eyes were closed, ' and his
face swollen and blackened to the chin.
The weapon, an iron bar eighteen inches
long, was covered with blood from end to
end, and where the hair adhered there were
clots of blood, Sprague was forty years
old and a powerful man, and' the negro
must have stolen upon him with a blow, to
have overcome him. ' • X ■ :
Smith had bought a complete ' new jj outfit, of
clothing and called in a store for, crackers and
cheese, where he was deiained till the -pursuers
came up. A crowd soon gathering' shouted,
"Hang him; shoot the murderer,' while several
men ran for ropes, which, were soon made into
halters, and others unsuccessfully attempted to
take him from the officers. ■'"; >
SXBUCK A HEAVY BLOW. *'" i
William Sprajac, a brother of the man. so ter
ribly her.ten, struck the assassin a fierce blow on
the head as he was being taken out of the house,
nearly felling '■ him. ' Only the determined con
duct of the officers prevented, a lynching. : The
oSicere then brought their prisoner |to ; Hicks
yille, where a man attempted to throw,; a noosed
rope over his ; head. While in the hotel at
Hicksville, the man was recognized",-'asl Charles
H. Rugg, and it is almost certain he \ was the as
sailant of Mr. and Mrs. Townsend, of : Oyster
Bay. The officers had much '-."trouble, in getting
their prisoner aboard the train |to > take -; him to
jail. <;:r ■ V':--V.;. '■':' ;.'v"..'

There was between 300 and 400 men with
torches and ropes howling and shonting "Let ua
get at him," "Let us hang the murderer." He
was finally locked in a freight car. >'At West
bury the train was boarded bvi 200 , men ; with
ropes and lanterns, who demanded to know where
the man was. They did not givo up the search
until the train started, some even remaining oq
board, swearing to hang him. The ' same scene
was enacted at Minola. The prisoner was finally,
lodged in the county jail .' v]; ■:"■''■''■'-':'f ~/'..
THE HANGING OF ANDEBSON AND BNYDEB.
. MT.VEBNON,Ind., Jan. 25.—Anderson and
Snyder, the doomed men, retired ;■ at 10
o'clock last night. During the night An
derson's nose commenced bleeding and
. became so serious that guard was
called.: It continued several minutes, after
which he slept soundly. Both were called
at 5 o'clock, and ate heartiiy. A Catholic
priest who had been with them w*»3 ■ denied
admission. t " They had asked for Methodist
ministers, and J. W. Asburg and H. E.
Wu)£*en, the gentlemen sent for,jpromptly
arrived, and conducted appropriate exer
cises. At 9:30 »he death warrant was read,
and was listened to without emotion. At
10 o'clock Anderson shaved. The prisoners
had singing, led by Snyder, who also de
livered a prayer, asking divine meroy and
expressing confidence that his sins
were forgiven. -'During the scene the pris
oner was very composed, while Snyder waa
nervous and excited and talked freely of
the crime and subsequently cried. Ander
son was much affected, bat under great
self control, was freely conversing with
the visitors and occasionally smiling. This
concluded they returned to the cells where
they were again attended by the ministers
and the last preparations were made. At
11:40 they ware conveyed to tie enclosure
near the Jail; attended by the Revs. Messrs.
Asbury and '• Wulfsen. Anderson
was very . very composed' and Snyder
emotional. He prayed aloud
constantly and Anderson made a brief
prayer when the trap j was sprung at
11:50. Snyder's neck was broke and Ander
son straggled and tivisted a moment.
Life was extinct in Sayder in seven mm
uces and in Anderson in eight minutes.
The bodies were cut down and pat in cof
fins and conveyed to Weis3enger3 under
taking establishment and exposed to the
public gaze. The arrangements wore
very complete Tith no hitch from first to '
last.
Tho crime for which Anderson and Sny- f
der were execavd was the marder, on ]
Aug. 12,1871 of James Vanweyer, seven
teen yeara of age. The latter w»9 known to
have $18 on hi 3 person, and he was en- 1
ticed to the r,pot selected for the crime, on i
the river bank a mile east of lit. Vernon. t
j While hia attention was directed the other ,•
way, Snyder struck him on the head with a f
olub and felled him to the ground, and <
t^ien held hi 3 head while Atderson, fitting i
astride of his body cut his throat from ear '
to ear with a pooket knife.
At the first plunge of the blade the victim
revived and realized his awful position,
begging for mercy and struggling dcs- !
perately. He was overmatched, however, I
aad was fooh overcome by lo*s of blood. •
After rilling his pockets, and before life ,
was extinct th» body was thrown in the ,
river and taken some distance out in the
stream, the murderers swimming on eaoh ,
side of it. The blood staiiis and disturbed j
ground were discovered the next dsy, and
the body after a search was discovered
Sunday afternoon. Suspicion was at once
directed to Anderson and Snyder, who :
were arrested before a line of denial could
be agreed upon between them, and i
by skillful manipalation by the officers, a i
confession from each, charging the crime j
on the other, was obtained. The trial was
brief, conviction prompt; executive clem
encey invoked in vain. Vanweyer was a
native of Kentucky, and had resided at
Mt. Vernon only a few
mouths doing odd jobs,
was en industrious and well-behaved boy.
Snyder and Anderson were both from
Mount Vernon. The former was twenty
one years, a shiftiass, idle fellow. Provi
oas to the murder he was never considered
vicious. Anderson was seventeen years
old, a bootblack, inclined to be industri
ons, but his associates were bad. Snyder's
mother's and both parents of Anderson
reside s.t Mount Vernut.
VIOLATING THE LOTTEBY LAW.
New Tfo*K, Jan. 25.—Daniel MoCauley,
ex-mayor of Indianapolis, was taken to the
police court to-day on the charge of vio
lating the lattery laws. He is president
and general manager of the Mutaal Union
Improvement company, an incorporated
concern, the objeots of whiob, as stated,
are the accumulation of funds for the
purchase of real estate, its improvement
and distribution among the shareholders.
Bonds are issued monthly for $5, and
holders are entitled to premiums. The
method oi distributing the premiums or
prizes as they are declared, is alleged io
be in the form of a lottery drawing. Gen.
McCauley was parolled iv custody of the
counsel for the examination.
A DEFATJLTEB ABBEBTED.
Denveb, Col., Jan. 25.—Frank Dewall,

MYSTEBIOTJS DEATHS.
Huntsville, Ala., Jan. 25. —Two Gyp
eies, p. man and wife, named MoMillan,were

volved in mystery.
ATTEMPTED MUBDEB AND SUICIDE,
Bangob, Me., Jan. 25.—John Spaulfling
shot hi 3 wife this morning and then killed
himself. His wife will recover.
THE BOWELIi MUBDEB TBIAL.
Batavia, N. V., Jan. 25.—The trial of
Lowell for shooting Lynch waa resumed,
and Palmer, a former partner and friend
of Rowell, continued his testimony. He
said while he and Rowell were arranging
to find Mrs. Rowell and Lynch in a com
promising position, he (witness) told Row
ell if Lynch was found in the house under
peculiar circumstances he would be a se
rious cuetomer,as he was large and muscu
lar, and might, if detested, crush Rowell.
or throw him out of a window
without stopping to open it. He
advised him to provide himself with some
pepper, and if he could succeed in thorw
ing it into Lynch's eyes, he would have
him completely at his mercy. He offered
to procure the services of Orlando Biodg
ett, James Knickerbocker, an amateur
wrestler, and Cnarles Valet to assist, and
Rowell agreed. He suggested to Rowell
that he oonceal himself in a cellar, wear
rubbers so as not to be heard; that he
could let us in, grab Lynch's clothes and
rend them by express. Rowell
said it was a good joke;
to send different articles to
different places as witnesses; we could
send hia hat to his mother, his pants to
the Utica Herald, his ooat to the Utica
Observel*,1 *, his vest to the Utica Press and
his shoes to the Utioa Saturday Globe.
An account of the meeting of Lynch at
the house would probably be published in
th© Batavia papers and a copy of the
paper could be sent with each package.
Palmer in hia cross-examination testified
that Rowell made a slung-shot at his sug
gestion and according to his directions,
te.ling him he should be well fixed to meet
Lynch. He proposed that if Rowell saw
his wife go away he should follow her and
employ a detective to watch her, so aa to
secure accurate knowledge of her conduct
and obtain a divorce. He was anxious to
see the truth of his statements substan
tiated, because he had been forced into this
i position by the attitude of Rowell and his
I wife. He thought Rowell doubted him, and
I Mrs. Rowell would strenuously deny its
[ troth, and Rowell had an abiding faith in
his wi^e, until after he had been to Roch-
i -f ' ■". ■ " ■ "■, '
ester to search the registers. On one or
two oocHsioAS witnees feared that Kovreil
had abandoned the matter altogether. He
was devoted to his wife, and was cheerful
before his (Palmer's) disclosure, and then
he became despondent, irritable, impa
tient, forgetful, absent minded, unmethod
ical and hurried in business matters. The
witness told him he could get a divorce,
and in a year or two after they separated
he wonld meet a lovable women
and marry her. There was
no doubt there were occasions when he
was impressed with the belief that Rowell
was becoming insane. In the presence of
his (witness) wife, he (the witness) took
some little familiarities with Mrs. Rowell,
which she resented. He said to her that
he hoped she was not any more intimate
with any other man than with him. She
replied she was not, except with Lynch.
The witness accepted this as a substantial
admission of adultery. Embracing and
kissing her was as far as ever the witness
went with her.
C. H. Turner, undertaker, identified the
slung shot found in the parlor.
A. H. Thomas testified to finding a bul
let in one of tho pillows.
Mrs. Rowell, in aa interview in the
