The Grain Markets at Chicago Show a

Corn and Provisions Also Stronger,
and Tending Upwards.

is quite a bull movement in
grain and provision?, both in New York
and Chicago. The short interests having
c burdensomely large, increased
foreign and domestic buying for long ac
coi:n* caused qnite a stampede amongst
the bears, whose efforts were to even up
their contracts. During the process a
lively upturn in prices took
plaoe. Wheat was fairly well
sustained until the end of fhe day's busi
ness. Speculators favor wheat and pro
visions, but corn is generally regarded as
high enough for the present, considering
■ of the supply constantly pour
ing ..ago. The markets all
started high* r. For tho first time in sixty
days the shorts in the wheat pit were
alarmed. May wheat, which
closed at '■>•'-;£, and which yesterday
morning sola at 95%e, touched 99j<jO.
This was an advance for twenty-four hours
of 3c Ev in Brega, one of the ino3t de
termine 3 of wheat shorts, declares that not
since I there been any den

preaol its as a fair price for May
was thrown into a little
. buyers at the very top
Kent & Co. and J. B.
Hobbs & Co. were active buyers all morn
ing. The cables were higher. Besrbohrn
quoted wheat and corn "steady and better
tone," 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. An explanation, too,
from Mr. Walker, the New York
statistician, made it appear that while he
made the decrease in visiblo 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 whioh had not left
up to Wednesday night, the deorease was
really over 500,000 bushels.
The receipts were small this morning,
only 4:5 cars of wheat and 189 of corn. Of
these latter 109 graded Mo. 2.
Corn was relatively not as strong as
wheat, for it advanced only U'c. touching
59' ••'. This was, however, because the pit
was dud. Provisions and wheat absorbed
Wheat for May opened at an advance
over last night of %o. It advanced to
99 : ( c, and then as provisions were break
ing and as some buyers had turned sellers,
the prices declined. At 1 o'clock, how
ever, it closed at 993>0C, the highest point
of the day. Corn surprised everybody.
It was not as strong as the other articles
oii the list, and yet everything was in its
favor. Receipts were much smaller than
anticipated. Those who are behind corn
are, however, not bulling it. They say
they do not wish its merits to become ob
scured by any such rapid advance as took
place during the manipulation of the Jan
nary clique. If tho 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 such circumstances, that prices ad
vanced. May pork went from $16.30 to
$16 35, and then lost nearly all the ad
vaue. Just before the close it recovered.
May lard fell from $9.40 down to $9.32^
and back to $937% again. There is, said
a 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 packers 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
marv. nevertheless true that all
packers, from the highest to
the littlest were deceived this year
on t orop. It has turned out
Bamller a great deal than they expected.
P.u ig to pell their "product at
presei tence the advance. At the
1 o'clock close May wheat was 99^; May
corn 59c; May pork $16 27' .£, May lard
$9.37} £. Prices broke ou the call. The
pres.-.u.'hid apparently been a little too
high to be sn.-triined,esneciallyonwheat,qnd
it dropped from 99^o' to 98^o for May
closing at 990: on the curb after call it was
selling at99J6o; corn broke to 58J^c for
May. May pork closed at $16.25: May
lard at $9.32>£.
Critlendet & 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's
closing, JoC on heavy realizations by local
holders, and closing steady with rather a
coj-iiidenfc 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 deolines and weak places. We
look for a little easier market to-morrow,

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.
Oats were active and firm, find 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 with any satisfac
tion owing to the excited condition of the
market. But after the majority of orders
were filled a steadier feeling prevailed.

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/ rec-.ipts were nearly 0,000

week, ihero were fully 10,000 on sale,
including the fresh arrivals and those left

predicted lower prices iv common and

It should be remembered thai

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 soeekiug employment
is pretty large, applicants in good
standing found no difficulty in obtaining accom
modation at [email protected] per cent. The clearings of tho
associated bauks were $5,901,000, against $6,
666,000 yesterday, $6,805,000 Wednesday, $7,
-102,C00 Tuesday, and §7,426,009 Monday. The
market for eastern exchange was linn and steady,
with sales between city banks at 60e 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 : Gould appears to
be selling everything while bidding up the mar
ket. The Villard's will make a further decline.
We strongly and confidently advise selling
everything on rollers aud 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.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
New Yokk, Jan. 25. —The amrket has
been wc!l manipulated to-day. Prices
■xe-ti strong at the opening. Oregon
continental they marked up to 19.
. a waiting market, pending the
result', f the meeting of the Western
Trunk Line association. There was less
activity than for the previous days of the
week. Northern Pacific preferred was not
slow in responding, and good buying of
all dividend payers was observed. The
Grangers were all strong but very auiet.
Reports were circulated that a settlement
would be effected to-day, and St. Paul
was easily lifted, giving the bears an
opportunity to sell, whi3h 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 and 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 Let affect the stock. Before the
day closed there was an improvement
from t 1- c lowest point. A glance over the
list will show little change in prices for the
last twenty-fonr hours.
It has looked a little to-day is though
the manipulators for an advance were
having rather a tedious tim 6 in accom
plishing their ends. Outside support is
much wanted, but it fails to respond.
Chicago & Alton advanced to 138 at the
la-t. The feeling was quite unsettled
when business oeaeed, with a very ragged
lo.jk to Villards. West Shore bonds were
comparatively neglected and showed bnt
little change in price. The Gould stocks
were well supported and the coalers dull.
It is reported that there is a bull pool in
Lackawanna. During the first hour Hollins
& Co. were buyers of Lackawanna and
Northern Pacific; Freeman & Co. of St.
Paul, and Northern Pacific. Prominent
commission houses are feeling more bull
ish, aud advising customers by wire and
letter not get short of the market, and
give the opinion the liquidation has but
little left to feed upon, in stocks. The
short interest in Northern Pacific is again
large. It loaned at 3 64, and Canada Pa
cifio at 1 (54, to-day. The Western Trunk
Line association adjourned without ac
complishing anything. Louisville & Nash

A Frightful Murder by a Negro at
Hicksvllle, L. I.
His Wife Assaulted, Beaten and Robbed
of Her Money.
A Long Chapter of Outrageous Doings
by the Criminal Class.
Hicksvllle, L. 1., Jan. 25.—At about
half pa-it ;-ix thi3 morning, Selah Sprtague,
| a well-to-do farm .: ol East . I adow, went

He j rea
when a tali, slim m icked him

saw Mrs. Spragne in the :■•...' i, -track
. her o !v, blow and d i
told him to _.: it out of the drawer, and
then ran .Toreanung from the houjie. Be
x'ovfj she had gone v.ry far, the man over
took and passed her, soon g'Hcing out oi
sight. Some- neighbors hiring Mr.s.
S];,rayue's cries hurried to the
spot and found Sprugue lying in a
pool of blood near the barn.
A general alarm was sounded, and the
farmers of Hickßville, Hempstead, West
bury and Janesville hitched up their horses
and started in all direciions scouring tho
country for the assassin. The man whom
Mrs. Sprague describes as a tall, slim,
young looking mulatto, is supposed to be
the sanaa 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 ie
great excitement all through Queens
county inconsequence of this third simi
lar outrage following so quickly upon the
Mayberg and Townsend affairs. Mr.
Sprague and wife are about fifty years of
age. The ph/iucidns no hopes of tite
recovery ot Sprague.
The innliaito has oeen arrested, identi
fied and jailed.
Charles A. Smith is tbe name of the
ne^ro who committed the assault. He
lived at Poverty Hollow, Oyster Bay. A
strong guard escorted him to jail, as it w; s
feared he might be lynched, as threi
violence were freely made by the crowd.
i Smith is fully identified by Mrs. Spragne.
He is known to be a diareputable char
acter, and it is thought he may be im
plicated in both the May bee murder and
the Townsend assault. Sprague is very
While the terrible wounds on the head
of Sprague were being dressed, he sudden
ly rcse up and vomited a full 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 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 soream. I
did so, and I tried to rush 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
mo 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
"give me money ok i'll mubdbb you."
I replied, "you ban have all the money
m the house, but tell me have you hurt my
husband ?"
"No," he replied, "I have not seen hira."
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. When the man had
gone away I ran out to summon help and
fell on the ice. I hurt my side badly. 4
The barn presented the appearance oi a
I slaughter bouse. The body of Sprgua lay
| against a bag filled with grain. The bag
was bloody on oto side. Sprague was not
dead, and he seemed to recognize the
voices of the men, though he couid not
speak. There was blood everywhere. Near
the double door there was a great pool of
blood frozen into. ice. Sprains lost so
much blood in this spot that it ran over
the door jamb and discolored the ground
outside. There was blood on a tub 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.
Smith had bought a complete new outfit of
clothing and called in a store for crackers and
cheese, where he was do ained till the pursuers
came up. A crowd soon gathering shouted,
"Hang him; shoot the murderer," while sereral
men ran for ropes, wLich were soon made into
halters, and others unsuccessfully attempted to
take him from the officers.
William Sprague, a brother of *he man so ter
ribly beaten, .-truck the assassin a fieioe blow on
thd bead as ho was being lakeu out of tho house,
neirly felling him. Only tie determined con
duct of *>ie officers prevented a lynching. The
officers then brought their prisoner to Hicks
ville, where a man attemptod to throw a noosed
rope over his head. While in the hotel at
Hicksville, the man was recognized as Charles
H. Rugg. and it is almost certhm 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
There was between 300 and 400 men with
torches and ropes howling and shonting "Let us
get at him," "Let us hang the murderer." He
was finally locked in a freight car. At West
bury the train was boarded by '200 men with
ropes and lanterns,who demanded to know whore
the man was. They did not give up the search
until the train starred, some 6ven remaining on
board, swearing to hang him. The same scene
was enacted at Minola. The prisoner was finally
lodged in the county jail.
MT.VEBNON,Ind., Jan.2s.—Anderson and
Snyder, the doomed men, retired at 1C
o'clock last night. During the night An
deison's nose commenced bleeding and
. became so serious that the guard was
called. It oontinued several minutes, aftei
which he slept soundly. Both were called
at 5 o'clock, and ate heartiiy. A Catholic
priest who had been with them was denied
admission. They had asked for Methodist
ministers, and J. W. Asburg and H. E.
Wulf*en, the gentlemen sent for,jpromptly
arrived, acid conducted appropriate exer
cises. At 9:30 <he death warravt 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 mercy and
expressing confidence that his sins
were forgiven. During the scene the pris
oner was very compo=td, while Snyder was
nervous and excited and talked freely of
the crime and subsequently cried. Ander
son was much affected, bnt 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 mici-ters
and the last preparations were made. At
11:40 they ware conveyed to t^e enclosure

Tho crime for which Anderson and Sny
der were executed was the murder, on
Aug. 12,1871 of James Vanweyer, seven
teen years of age. The latter was known to
have $18 on his person, and he was en
ticed to the spot selected for the crime, on
the river bauk a mile east of Mt. Vernon.
While hia attention was directed the other
way, Snyder struck him on the head with a
olnb and felled him to the ground, and
then held his head while ALderson, fitting
astride of his body cut his throat from ear
to ear with a pocket knife.
At the first plunge of the blade the victim
revived and realized his awfnl position,
begging for mercy and struggling des
perately. He was overmatched, however,
and was foou overcome by loss of blood.
After rilling his pockets, and before life
was extinct th» body was thrown in the
river and taktn some distance out in the
stream, the murderers swimming on eaoh
side of it. The blood stains and disturbed
«round were discovered the next dey, aud
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
bo agreed upon between them, and
by skillful manipalation by the officers, a
confession Irom each, charging the crima
on the other, was obtained. The trial whb
brief, oonviction 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 shiffass, idle fellow. Previ
ous to the murder he was never considered
vicious. Anderson was seventeen years
old, a bootblack, inclined to be industri
ous, but hiß associates were bad. Snyder's
mother's and both parents of Anderson
reside :-.t Mount VQrnou.
New Yoke, Jan. 25. —Daniel McCauley,
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 maniger of the Mutual Union
Improvement company, an incorporated
concern, the objects of which, 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 of distributing the premiums or
prizes as they are declared, is alleged to
be in the form of a lottery drawing. Gen.
McCauley was parolled in custody of the
counsel for the examination.
Denveb, Col., Jan. 25.—Frank Dewrdl,
the defaulting president of the First Na
tional bank of Laadville, was arrested to
day at Elpaso, Texas. The Leadville offi
cers are an route with extradition papers.
Huntsville, Ala., Jan. 25. —Two Gyp
sies, a man aud wife, named MoMillan,were
found dead in a tunt this morning. They
bore no marks of violenoe. The man had
$2,300 in his clothes. The affair is in
volved in mystery.
Bangob, Me., Jan. 25. —John Spaulding
shot his wife this morning and then killed
himself. His wife will recover.
Batavia, N. V., Jan. 25.—The trial of
Lowell for shooting Lynch was 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 ho would be a se
rious cu6tomer,as he was large and muscu
lar, and might, if defeated, 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 ho 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, Jamts Knickerbocker, an amateur
wrestler, and Cnarles Valet to assist, and
Rowell agreed. He suggested to Rowell
that he conceal himself in a cellar, wear
rubbers so as not to be beard; that he
could let us in, grab Lynch's clothes and
tend them by express. Rowell
said it was a good joke;
to send different articles to
different places as witnesses; ws could
Fend his hat to his mother, his pants to
th 9 Utica Herald, his coat to the Utica
Observel-, his vest to the Utica Press and
his shoes to the Utica Saturday Globe.
An account of the meeting of Lynch at
the house would probably be published in
the Batavia papers and a copy of the
paper could be sent with eaoh package.
Palmer in his cross-examination testified
. that Rowell made a slmg-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 as tc
secure aoourate knowledge of her conducl
and obtain a divorce. He was anxious to
, see the truth of his statements substan
tiated, because he had been forced into this
' ■ position by the attitude of Rowell and hie
I wife. He thought Rowell doubted him, anc
I j Mrs. Rowell would strenuously deny its
i { truth, and Rowell had an abiding faith ii
r j his wife, until after he had been to Rooh
ester to search the registers. On one or
two 03C4.5i0...5 witness feared that iL:>vt:l
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, ab.-ent minded, unmethod
ical and harried in business matters. The
witness told him he could get a divorce,
and in a year or two after they separated
he would 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 ilrs. 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 tdalterv. Embracing and
kissing her w<i3 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
