There were only 16,000 hogs at the
yards, fewer even than wore received yes
terday,'and the liva hog, which has been
growing[steadily in estimation ever since
he began to make himself scaroe,advanced
another ten points. Yesterday there were
only 18,000 hogs received and of them over
one-third were sent east. The little packers
have',become tired of competing with the
big houses and the rioh shippers, and have,
some of them, shut down. They have ac
knowledged themselves beaten in the
struggle to get cheap hogs. By shutting
down it is evident that they have abandon
ed the idea of hogs very soon becoming
cheaper or plentier. Of course the pro
duct wont up. The enormous sales of Jones
yesterday would have filled up and broken
the market under ordinary circumstances.
Instead of weakening, May pork toll
this morning up to $16.70, the
highest point yet, and broke off
simply because it was manipulated down,
not because any big bidders became sel
lers or because any substantial bulls be
lieve the top has yet been reached. May |
pork optsned at $16.50, 5c above last night's
close, advanced 20c and weakened a little.
The close, however, was $10.00 for May,
150 above last night.
Wheat rmd corn wore dull but. strong.
The wheat bears said the price was i=us
tained by the advance in the provision
pit. The sellers of pork eaid,
it would go right down except
for advise in grain. Poole, Kent & Co.,
Milwine, Boatman & Co., and Lester &Co.,
were largo buyers even at the top of wheat,
and their purchases counted for a good
deal, especially as there was no con
centrated selling. Wheat for May closed
at 983^(5 98%0, ue-arly the top pnoe of the
In corn the feeling was dull until near
the close, when there was an advance of a
fraction. Comstock, Bliss and

The flour market was again quiet, stilt
sales were a little larger than for sevar.il
days past. A few orders for shipment
were niled. They were on Canadian ac
count, and this comprised about all tho
trade with the exception of a few lots tak
en ou horns account. Prices were un
ohanged. Ths sock of flour in Chicago is
reported at 63,192 barrels, against 62,427
barrels one month ago and 77,557 barrels
one year ago.
Miiwine, Bodeman <fc Co. say: "Wheat
opened weak, with the local crowd making
ever;, effort to depress the market. It
opened at 977; C May. The shorts were
not disposed to buy at the opening, but
on the contrary joined the crowd in the
raid to break the market. Some of the
leading host. here who have been steady
buyers for some I*me past were in the
market• again., taking nil offerings, and
this fact frightened 7.oris badly and
thoy at once beoaiue uvdj buyers. There
were some heavy buying orders
from the seaboard to cover
shorts, which added io the
strength. After the market fairly started
on the up turn, the shorts c.rried it along
without any Le.'p, and fcr the Inst half
hovr there was busy trading and no little
excitement, during which some sal?s of
May were made at 98% c. The New York
market ruled steady, recordi.ig an advance
of about %.
There is no doubt a largo shortage in all
the principal markets on wheat, and if the
orders should increase on the buying side
some advance is not improbable, yet it
should not be forgotten that there is no
essential change in the situation. There
is just as much wheat as ever and just as
little demand for it as heretofore, and aDy
advance we may have in wheat will be the
result of speculation. Corn has ruled
stroDg all day, opening at about 58} 4 '0
May, declined to 57%0, and near the close
advanced to 58 % c bid. Some strong par
ties wer 1 buying as there has been for
some days, and the shorts took fright
badly. There is no doubt a large
shortage in the market, and it is
in condition to be bullied easily, We are
inclined to think well of corn as a
purchase on breaks. Oats quiet and
Sim with light trading at 36% c to 37 May.
The receipts of oats continue large, which
has a depressing effect. There don't seem
to be much disposition to trade in them,
but at the same time we regard them as

The receipts of cattle at the stock .
continue:! to show a falling oil as compar
ed -nith last week. Estimating to
arrivals there are about 5,000 less for the
week co far, th& number to-day being
folly 3,000 less than last Friday. Trade
opened quiet, with o^ly a limited dem
but all grades of cattle were equally
as wtli as any day this
week, and perhaps a shade stronger
on some good lots. On good butchers'
stock the demand was barsly as keen as
on the previous days of the week, yet
prices cannot be quoted lower. Common
butchers' stock and canners' did sell a
shade lower and were slow. There has
been a brisk demand for feeders and
stookers and priceb for the same continue
to be high. The general market may ba
quoted steady. Cattle receipts for the
month of January show a falling off of
422 head as compared with the correspond
ing month in 1883.
Receipts of hogs for the day show a de
crease as compared with last Fiiday, yet
for the week a slight increase. Trade
opened quiet, bnt later on when packers'
orders had been reoeived there was a brisk
demand and about all sorts went oat at
nearly yesterday's prices. There may have
been some sales made at the opening.at low
er figures, and certainly there were some
sales later higher thin yesterday, but taken
altogether there is little or no change to
note. For heavy hogs competition was
active between packers, shippers and
speculators, the best selling up
to [email protected] Parties who bet there
would be 600,000 hogs or over for January
had to walk np to the captain's office and
settle, the number reaching only 550,937.
This is a falling off of 189,637 as oornpared
with the corresponding mouth in 1883.
The shipments of hogs last month reached
the extraordinary number of 172,403.
The receipts of sheep were somewhat
less than for a few days past, yet the mar
ket continues unsettle", and values rather
weak, especially in common. Fair to me

Chicago, Feb. 1. —The demand for money to
day was moderately active and all classes of
borrowers were in attendance. To all such hav
ing the regular security the banks dealt out the

New Yobk, Feb. I—Tho market seemed
inclined to be sluggish during the greater
part of the day. The various bear rumors
helped to unsettle values. They had ar
ranged for a break in Western Union
Telegraph, to be followed by a decline in
the Wabash lines, and Louisville & Nash
ville, all of which failed to be accom
plished. Mr. Gould, it is still believed, is
underneath several stocks, but the outside
support is so meager thit at timas it
looked as though the advance had about
culminate!. Quite a short interest in Cen
tral Pacific was covered this morning,
causing and advance from 54c to 56^c,
with f ome excitement. This was the most
important change during the session.
There were free offerings of West Shore
bonds, which caused a weak and unsettled
feeling in them. About 2 o'clock the bulls
appeared to be taking a fresh hold. There
was a spurt in St. Paul, Lake Shore, Union
Pacific and Delaware & Lackawanna, and
the markst generally became quite buoy
ant. Western operators as a general thing
do not attach much importance to these
spasmodic improvements. They credit j
them entirely to manipulation, and do not
think there is much stability in present
prices. Stocks were rather firm at the
finish. St. Paul and Union Pacific being
particularly so. Chicago & Alton sold at
140. The final quotations on Central Pa
cific and Pullman Palace are ex-dividend.

ment, and the general tenor of tbe specu
lative and grain trade can hardly be
classified as otherwise than a gain. In
dustrially the changes of the week have
been noticeable. The seven months' strike
in the glass industry has terminated and
the operatives may jcstly claim important
concessions in the settlement reached. The
Fall River cotton mills decided to reduce
wages 10 to 12}^ per cent., which was to
be expected after like action at other New
England cotton manufacturing towns. To
this action the Fall River operatives
strongly object, preferring reduced hours
to lower wages, and a strike is threatened
in consequence. The grain market during
the week iie.s boen weak.

various paints in the west, the reduction

AFTEK SEVENTEEN TEAKS.
.1 Long Missing Drover Returns Suddenly
to His Old Home With Plenty of Money,
Wathbtown, Ind., Jan. 29.—Seventeen
years ago John Bay, a prominent business man,
accompanied by John Bittle, started to Chicago
with several car loads "f catde. He purchased
the cattle on condition that he should pay
for them on his return, but he never returned,
and the large farm he owned was sold and his
debts settled. Bittle returned, and, becoming
wealthy, it was surmised that he had, some
thing to do with ltiy's disappearance.
After an absence of seventeen years Bay re
turned last week to the surprise of every one.
Time had so changed things that recognition on
both sides was most difficult. He says that dur
ing his absence he has been engaged in herding
cattle in Texw, where he has grown immensely
wealthy, but aside from this he has little to say.
The true secret of his strange freak, it is
thought, was owing to unpleasant matrimonial
relations. His wife married a sh%rt time after
ho left, supposing him to be dead. It is ru
mored that husband No. 2is now about of the
state of mind that No. 1 was seventeen years
A BLOOMING FLOWER \
The .Mantle of Tilden Falling on Fx-Sena
tor Eat<jn or It. J*. Flower—The Chances
in Favor of Flower.
[Special Telegram to the Globe I
Washington, Feb. I.—Tiiden is oat of
the presidential race. Thin declaration,
which has been made and denied with
such frequent regularity as to confuse
even his best friends, is now known to be
an established fact. Last week a confer
ence of Tilden m;-A± was held in
New York to settle upon two men,
one of whom should receive their
support for the presidency. Nothing
further was douo than to decide on ex-
Senator Eaton, of Conn., and ex-Congress
man R. P. Flower, cf N. V., either cf whom
were regarded as exceptionally etroDg,
and the latitr especially as the o^:y man
who can carry New York against Arthcr.
The scene next shifted to this place and
dating the present week several of Mr.
Tilden's agents have bec-n busily engaged
in soandi jg leading Democrats of the Til
den'school as to their preferences. No
other names are mentioned than tho3B
above givec. Either is acceptable
to Tilden. When it is decided who
will make the stronger candidate, the
"barl" will be opened and all tha machin
ery set in motion to insure hi 3 nomina
tion. Flower is immensely popular at
homo. He is a self made man, large
hearted, wealthy and charitable. He i?
engaged in the banking business. He de
feated W. W. Astor for congress three
years ago by a majority of 900 in a dis
trict which is generally Republican. This
fact is oited by his friends to demonstrate
his cleverness as an organizer.
The St. Louis and Missouri crowd, who
did so much to bring about Tilden's nomi
nation in 187G, are for him to a man. In
this connection a Globe correspondent
was to-day shown a letter from one of Mr.
Tilden's most intimate western friends in
whioh the merits and prospects of the dif
ferent candidates were sketched with that
charming frankness whioh even the
most cautious politicians sometimes nse
under the seai of privacy. The writer is
an ardent admirer of Flower, whom he
characterizes "a full blown sunflower and
not a pansoy blossom." He deolares that
he alone can harmonize the warring
factions of New York city and that he is
the only Democrat whom Arthur cannot
defeat. He pays a high tribute to Arthur's
shrewdness, and asserts that negotiations
are now pending between the administra
tion and John Keliy to tarn the state over
to the Republicans this fall, as was done
four years ago. This combination will
be destroyed by the nomination of
Flower. Payne he regards as a good
man, but says all the old "mossbacks" like
Thurman, Ward and Pendleton are against
him, and besides he is tainted with the
odor of standard oil. Bayard he regards
as ''too insignificant for any discussion."
The Tilden people are friendly toward
Eaton, but it is not thought that he can
carry New York. The indications at pres
ent point to Flower as the man upon whom

THE CADET FKACAS.
A New Version of the Affair as Detailed by
an Eye Witness.
Annapolis, Md., Feb. 1. —A cadet who
witnessed the wtiole affair at tho naval acad
emy jon Saturday last, enjs, the quarrel
was h private one between a first classman
and a fourth classman. The first class
man reached out to take hold of the fourth
classman, wheu the latter struck him twice
with a skate, afterwards running into a
dark room and striking at everybody that
approached him. Tin skates were taken
from him and he was ied into the corridor |
to have it out, but he dr.rtcd down stairs
and ran away, rothing bdr g =cen of him
until supper. On leaving the mess hall,
a firstclass man stopped him, and told
him he supposed he was ready to go to
one of tha upper floors, away from the of
ficer in charge, and give satisfaction to the
man he had so cowardly struck. Here
fused, and began to strike out at the men
around, who took hold of him to carry
him to the first floor, to fight
out the quarrel. The souill9
attracted the attention of the officer in
charge, and all present dispersed. Cadet
Craig was assured that he should have al
ways fair play, and only one to fight, and
that the one man he had already hit, who
is ten pounds lighter than he. The state
ment that any one else was hurt, except
the party struck with the skates, is entirely
incorrect. There was no hazing connect
ed with thi3 difficulty whatever.

Preparations jor the Annual Banquet of

Chicago, Feb. 1. —The Iroquois club has
arranged to hold its banquet at the Palmer
House, April 15. The committee upon se
curing speakers and arranging the details
have just been appointed. Secretary
Frank G. Hoyne, being interviewed in
raference to the national convention said:
,; There is only one thing that will prevent
Chicago getting the convention, that is the
event of Samuel J. Tilden being a candi
date. If he is the convention will natur
ally go to the place that gave him the
nomination before—that is Sr,. Louis."
"Well Mr. Tilden is not the Iroquois
club candidate, is he?"
''That is not the. question. If he says
he will accept the nomination if it is offer
el him, he has enough members on the
committee pledged to him to control the
location of the convention, and if that
should provo to be the case it will natural
ly follow that the convention will be held
in the place that gave him the nomination
bef jre and that is the only thing that will
prevent Chicago getting the nomination."
