The St. Paul produce markets yesterday were
inactive and prices steady. Grain at Milwaukee
and Chicago was strong, active and higher, the
flood anticipations helping the bulls to triumph
as they have not done for many days. Mil
waukee closed I%@' higher than Tuesday;
wheat at Chicago closed [email protected]^c higher; corn
s£@3bC, and oats 3^c above Tuesday's quota
tions. Pork was [email protected] higher. The New York
money market continues easy with prices un
changed. Government bonds yesterday on
Wall street were steady; state securities diil
and railroad bon Is firm and generally higher.
The stock market opened quiet and lower but
the day was one of fluctuations. On a repart
becoming current that Delaware & Hudson in
tended paying an extra dividend the general list
advanced, led by Delaware [email protected]% per cent.
Manitoba rose to 97c; New Jersey Central sold
up to 89c; Lack'awanna to $1.25%; Michigan
Central to 93c; New York Central to $1.15%;
Lake Shore to $1.00%; Northern Pacific pre
ferred to 46% c; Western Union to 75)£c. An
other reaction set in and Lake Shore doclined to

Delegate Maginnis proposes to make a
lamp job of the admission of Dakota and
Montana as states. A good deal haa been
said on this subject, especially in regard to
Dakota, and now no doubt the flood-gates
will open wider than ever. If tho argu
ment that one of the territories will be
come a Republican state and one a Demo
cratio state will facilitate the consum
mation, so much the better. Bath have

The selection of Mr. Blackburn as sena
tor from Kentucky is a very satisfactory
settlement of a matter that was beginning
to bo tedious. Mr. Blackburn is a native
of the state which has chosen him he is a
yon:i£ man (having been born in 1883),
but has a large experience in public life.
In all tha positions he has hitherto occu
pied be has shown marked ability, and his
broad culture and studiously acquired
familiarity with governmental affairs
equip him in a rare degree for the new
duties he is to assume. Fearless and
honest, he is of the typo of men the senate
and the country most need.
A pbactioal movement was begun in the
House of Representatives yesterday, to
ward an equitable disposition in regard to
the trade dollar. The plan proposed for
its retirement relieves it of the unjust dis
count which has laid upon it, and at the
same time provides for its rapid with
drawal from circulation. There never was
any reason for the embargo placed upon
its purchasing power, which was rendered
all iha more ridiculous for the reason that
its intrinsic value exceeded that of the
standard dollar. It is now to be the peer
of the " dollar of the daddies." Let us
have peace.
Th 6 speech of the queen to parliament
is rarely a document of any especial im
portance, either with reference to the past
in its relation to what has occurred or to
the future concerning the legislative action
which it announces. The world always
knows of acts which th: speech presents
as haying taken placa and equally well of
the proposed changed which are to be
made, or are recommended to be made
during tho session of parliament.
Regarded as a questijn of service and
wages her majesty is fairly well paid for
what she has to do. For a couple of short
addresses par anaum, wh.ch she d 033 not
prepare, and which she does not as a rule
deliver and to which sho appends her name,
she receives as pin money $300,000 a
year, and about $1,000,000 a year for ex
peases of her house, la addition to her
income, she demands and receives for ex
penses of her immediate relatives some
thing more than $850,000 annually, the
total amounting to more than $2,000,000 a
year, and all for the labor of preparing an
address which she does not prepare, and
for reading it—which she d jea once or so in
a decade, and for signing her name to vari
ous documents, which she either does not
do at all or else doe 3by proxy.
The addres3 just prepared by Gladstone,
and read by proxy, is one about of the
usual value. Is tells the world what the
world already knows about the Egyptian
difficulty, aud what i 3 very odd in this di
rection is ihat at the very moment when
the throne was warbling sweetly as to tran
quility resulting from "my efforts" in
Egypt) maddened fugitives were flying
from the vicinity of Tokar, carrying news
of another disastrous defeat of the Egypt
ain forja?,led by an Egyptainized English
man. In truth fate seems to have taken it
in haiid to frivo th.c lie to assurances of
"traaquility" and to have launched a
bloody protest against results of " rnj
poiioy" at the very moment when it, pr«
tendscS advantages wers being vaunted.
It ought to be noticed at this point thai
cv *ry time there :s a defeat of the Egyp
tian armies, there is created a powerful
reflection upon the courage of the English
forces during late attacks on Alexandria
and other places. British troops assumed
that they we re heroes in desperate strug
gles which they made against the native
forces aud jet (here ccmes a half armed
s&mb of fanatics from the deserfc,and drivei
these same Egy ptian forces before them as
if tliey were sheep. How much
courage did it require oa
the part of the English with
their steel environed ships, their rified
cannon, their destructive small arms, their
mßgnificeat personnel and material to de
feat these native troops when the same
thing is done with comparative ease by a
body of barbarians armed only with
spears and the fire-locks of a century
ago? In defiats which are being admin-*
istered by El Mahdi one can measure the
vain*: of victories which were gained by
the English aroiie3 during their memor
able and much vaunted campaign.
Cluoh of the queen's speech is devoted
to Egypt, and but a few lines to Ireland.
Ireland continues to exhibit substantial
improvement is all that the address has to
say of that country; and this is probably
true, although this statement, will
not be likely to meet the approval of agi
tators either of this country or ef Ireland.
Assassination has declined as a meat>ure
of so called political reformation and
there appears to be a leaning for relief in
the promise of legislation. In this respect
we can thank the queen for a bit of satisfac
tory information, although it is informs
tion which has for some time been well
known to the public.
The first afternoon reception of the
winter at the White hou&e was held last
week. It was signalized for the attitude
of Mrs. Frelinghuysen, who claims rank
next to the president's family, because last
winter she was given precedence over Mrs.
Eeifer, and this season the distinction is
acoorded to Mrs. Carlisle. The New Jer
sey dame refused, absolutely, to accept the
mutilated courtesy of standing second to the
speaker's wife, and the annual disturbance
as to the precedence is in full blast, with
Washington ringing over thegop°ip of it.
In vain would seem to be all the rules and
regulations for the curbing of ambitious
spirits born to domineer socially, and in
tent on securing the first places in life
willy nilly.
There is a pertinent story told of Lady
Salisbury at the great Handel festival in
Westminster abbey, May, 178-t, at which
Mr. Grenville was present. Lady Salis
bury arrived very late.
George 111., Queen Charlotte, and all tho
royal family were iv their places, and the
performance began. In the middle of a
piece of music, a loud hammering was
heard, which disturbed and offended tha
audience, who expressed their displeasure
promptly and vehemently, but in vain.
On went the hammering without inter
mission. Tho music ceased; the assem
bly rose in an uproar; and their Majesties'
dispatched Lord S-iiisbury, at that time
lord chamberlain, to ascertain the cause of
so indecent a disturbance.
It proved to be hia own wife. On en
tering the box reserved for the lord cham
berlain and his family, her ladyship found
it had been divided to accommodate
another party, and had insisted
on carpenters being sent for and com
pelled to pull down the partition in utter
disregard of King, Queer., Lords and
Commons, singers, fiddlers, and the awful
British public. But what is Frelinghuj
sen going to do about such an animated \
and towering partition as the Kentuokian
who has como between her and her late
position, stimulated.^ perhaps, with a lilile
of Rob Roy's sentiment,
That they Bhould take who have the power,
And they should keep who can.
If Roecoe Conkling is given to medita
ting on the lessons of fallen politioal
greatness, and of power in desuetude, he
must have eoroe grim reflections when he
hears of Arthur's eating a family dinner
with James G. Blame. The jolly trio of
Conkling's halcyon time —
Whore are they now in the matter of
grateful memory for the man that made
them possible on the political soene?
Aud jet if we are disposed to some re
sentment towards the abdicated Stalwart
for the prominence of his creatures, we
must, nevertheless, accord him our thanks
that his name does not appear in the cor
responcience of Mr. C. P. Hunticgion, nor
in the memoranda of one Mulligan—nor
in any steal, great or small.
Neither is he writing any "Recollections
of his political life" with a frontis
pieco of a sun stroke at a church
door. No matter who confesses from
Dorsey down and up, {he head of Roscae
is loftily and econ;fully above his ene
mies, and his hands are empty of public
funds. To ba so undented among the
pitchy crowd of his political affiliations
with money sticking to tbe fingers of all
tho good partisans, is someth ng to boast
of—albeit Coukling would net thank any
one for the compliment, since it is a good
deal like giving the Chevalier Bayard,
without fear and without reproach, a cer
tificate of good character, or recording
the courage of Turenner, or the truthful
ness of George Washington. Still the j
record is known to be that Roscoe Conk
ling will not steal money under any patri
otic pretext whatsoever.
That he did not denounce the steal of the
Hayee presidency was the fatal miss of bis
career. His silence then is the criminat
ing blot on his integrity.
W. M. Kimball, who died in Blackstone,
Mass., a few days ago, iv the midst of extreme
filth and squalor, was a very prosperous physi
cian forty years ago. Ou preparing his body
for burial the attendants were surprised to find
a dirty pouch strapped upon his back, in which
was nearly $U,O'JO iv bank bills, while in his
trousers pocket was found a wallet containitg
$1,000. All over the premises were evidences
of pinching -want, but concealed in various
places about the room wer? coin and bank bills
to the extent of nearly $80,000.

Wonderland. ■ ■
The Grand contained a fair sized audi
ence last night to witness the closing exhi
bition of "Calfee's Wonderland." The
views, which represent the notable scenery
of the Yellowstone National Park, are
marvelous for fine coloring and their fidel
ity to nature, and no more instructive or
enjoyable entertainment can be imagined.
The Conqueror of Sitting Bull.
Col. Guido Ilges, at the request of very
many friends, has consented to change
the date of his lecture at Sherman hall,
from to-night to Saturday evening. The
Colonel will in the mean time incorporate
among his reminiscences, that of the cap
ture of Sitting Bull, for which he has been
so noted. Quite a number of his army
friends have signified their intention of
being present, and the lecturer will no
doubt have a full house.
Monte CrUto.
The sale of seats for the engagement of Stet
son's "Monre Cristo" company opens at the box
office of the Grand on Saturday morning. Of
its presentation in Baltimore the Sun speaks as
"Mr. John Stetson's company, from Booth's
tqeatre, New York, opened last night
at . the Academy with the play
"Monte Cristo.'' It is cleverly dramatized
from Dumas' favorite work, and commands the
attention and interest of the audience through
out. Mr. Jam? 6 O'Neill plays the part of 'Ed
mund Dantes,' the Count of Monte Cristo, with
an intelligent conception of the difficult char
acter. In his explanation to the Procurator,
his attention to his affianced bride,
in the consciousness of his honesty
and fidelity to his patron, M.
Morel, as* well'as later on his determination to
avengo the great wrongs done him, ho showed
great power. His enunciation was clear, and
his actions never overwrought. The support
was excellent. Miss Eugenic Blair, as 'Merce
des,' in her trying situation of hope, followed
by disappointment at the loss of her lover,
showed a proper realization of what was requir
ed. The part of 'Caderouase," the ir.n-keepor,
feigning drunkenness to defeat the wicked in
tentions of the schemer^, arid jolly in his mis
fortunes, was rendered very cleverly by Mr. J.
W. Shannon. Mr. Frederic De Belleville, as
'Noirticr,' was well received. The whole com
pany showed excellent training in their work.
Tho scenery, by Voegtlin and Joseph Clare, was
J very beautiful in every particular. The imita- i
tion of the motion of the waves, when 'Dantee' j
is thrown overboard instead of his father, and
the noise or the water, is perfect.

the leasing of school lands, belonging to the 1
unorganized counties, the longest lease to be
saveri years, and the minimum rental is fixed at '
five cants per acrt, instead of ten aa proposed- ]

They Believe that Bed Rock Has Been
Beached and Expect
The Buoyant Feeling Occasioned by ar
Rise iv (xiain and Provisions.
But the Bears «ay the Advance Was the
Result of a Bull Maneuver.
Heavy Sales of Western Union—North
ern Pacific Lifeless—A Rise
in Manitoba.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, Feb. 6.—The bulls hare recov
ered all their courage. The trials of the
last Biz months are forgotten. The disap
pointments suffered by provision balls
since the failure of Peter McGeooh, and
those suffered by wheat bulls since wheat
started at $1.18 to decline, are all offset to
day by a little forty cent advance in pork
and another little two cent advance in
grain. There has been inside of twenty
four hours a great desertion from the bear
ranks. Bayers who have been forlorn here
for months are strong enough to change
from a defensive to an offensive policy.
There never was before in the market a
completer or quicker transformation than
was made between nightfall of yesterday
and noon of to-day.
It is not the advance that has taken
place that has so altered the feeling of
the crowd. That which has taken place in
wheat and corn, compared with the de
cline they have suffered is contemptible.
The elation of buyers and the sudden
changing about of sellers, is due almost
altogether to the fact that they see, or
think they see, that the movement of
prices of produce have changed; that the
down hill tendenoy which has existed for
six months, has not only stopped, bat that
an up hill movement has begun. Owners
of property are now to have their day, it
is generally believed.
To-day's charges in prices are of little
moment. The possibility that iv day's
changes inaugurate possibly and probably
a bull era agitates every trader in produce
in the country. May wheat got a little
above the dollar mark, and actually
touched $1.01. There are lots of intelli
gent traders who are superstitious about
an advance abevo a point on an upturn or
a drop below it on a dacline. Half of the
crowd say now that May wheat is bent for
$1.05 before any substantial break takes
May wheat closed last night at 98%. It
opened at 09 this morning and after a mo
mentary weakness advanced to 100%.
Hobbs, Poole, Kent & Co., B»ker, Jones,
Edwards and a Bcore of brokers were buy
ing on a great scale. "I believe," said a
conservative trader, "that both Kent and
Armour were to-day big buyers of wh<at
through brokers."
The wheat bears claim that the advance
is due almost altogether to a maneuver
of speonlators and give these details: Nat
Jones, Ream, Singer, Henry, Warren and
perhaps some others loaded up with wheat
a week ago upou the theory that with bo
great an advance in pork it would not be
a difficult thing to bull grain. They bought
a million or two buahala when wheat
showed no great strength. They bought
more later, and yesterday, and to-day
bought largely. Wheat began to advance.
The shorts, big and little, became alarmed.
The Adamses covered a great line and
other big bears became alarmed when 99%e
and $1 was reached.
"If," says an operator, "the Ream-Jones
syndicate could sell out their 4,000,000 or
5,000,000 busiael3 of wl^at to day, they'd
be big winnerp. I don't think they could
do it, however."
Cables on both wheat aud corn were
higher today. New York was consider
able higher. The thermometer at Kansas
City was said to be only 6 degrees above
zaro, the Ohio river was booming, the
weather everywhere over the west was
said to bo bad. These were all legitimate
bull influences and they undoubtedly had
much to do with tho advance.
Cuiahy & Stavtsns, Baker and others
from the provision pit were buyers of corn.
May opened at 58J^c advanced to 59%0
and closed at 1 o'clock at 59^gc.
Provisions were strong early in the day
acd weak later. They were comparative
ly active through the whole session. May
pork opened at $17.57)^, advanced to
$17.85 and closed at $17.62}£. May lard
opened at $9.87^, sold up to $10 and
cosed at $9.87^. There were only 14,
--030 hogs at the yards and heavy packers
were selling at $6 50. Receipts were small,
especially of corn, and helped along the
advance. There were only 66 cars of
wheat snd 29 of corn.
The other day a well known New York
brokerage firm telegraphed its Chicago
correspondents, referring to a rumor that
freight rates on grain were to be cut and
a railroad war precipitated, that the bc-.t
posted railroad people at New York de
clared that the 6ast bound trunk line pro
posed in a few days to pat grain rates
equarely down to 15a, and possibly to 120,
iv order to move oat tha enormous accu
mulation of grain at Chicago before navi
gation opens and vessels begia compete
tion with the railroads. The dispatch said
that the policy was pursued in a lees radi
cal scale every spring, There has been an
intimation of ouch a cut.
A shipper, reterring to the rumor, says
tkat wheat will need to advance 20c a beth
el at Liverpool or decliae here 20c or else
rates must be oat 200, in order to induce
any general movement out of No. 2 spring
wheat. May wheat closed on call at
$1.00)£; May corn at 59%@59>£0; May
pork at $17.67^; May lard at 9.07}-£.
Armour's men were openly buying wheat
on call. On the ourb the feeling was
stronger. Wheat and oorn advanoed }£c
later, influenced by further dispatohes
which were confirmatory of reports re
garding the damage by floods in the Ohio
river bottoms. Pork advanced 12^c per
bsrrel, and lard and «g|6 7}£c per 100
pounds. To-night everrflhnsr is strong at
the following quotations for May: Wheal
$1.00J6; corn 59%0; oats 37%0; rye 64^0;
pork $17.80; lard $9.95; ribs $9.35.
At the stook yards the receipts of cattle
are on th 9 increase cud considerably heav
ier then one week p.go to-day, and so far
therfc is no great shortage as compared
with last week. For good and finished, or
such as paaa for finished, there was a fair
and steady demand, and for such price?
ruled equally as good as on Monday or
Tuesday. Some common and half fat
sorts are Belling quite irregular, many
salesmen reporting that they could not sell
the common sort of 1000 to 1100 steers
for as good prices os on Monday, while on
the other hand there were salesmen and
good judges of stock, careful of what'they
Bay and honest, who reported values fully
as hi^h as on any day.
The bcatde3oription3 of butchers' stock
continues to sell well, yet common and
poor conners stook is rather weaker. A
large number of buyers of stookerß and
feeders from West Virginia a^d other
states were on the market and bought
frefcly. Prices remain about the same as
last week.
Hogs continue to decrease in number
received. As compared with the corres
ponding day of last week there were 7,000
less, and 17,000 less for week so far. The
market opened strong and high
er on all . grades, the advance being
the greatest for fair to good mixed packers
and shippers. In same instances [email protected]

New Yoek, reb. 6.—The balls did Eot
score a victory to-day, unless they are en
deavoring to encourage the short interest
and induoe outsiders to Bel!. If that is
their object and end, they have been suc
cessful. Buying during the first hour was
very good, but tha market did not respond
and was barely sustained. A demonstra
tion was then made in Lackawanna, Belli
ing it up from 123 to 125%. Other coaler*
were advanced sharply, Hudson accom
panying the movement. Northern Paci
fic stocks were in good . supply
all day, ana it was difficult
to get any appearance of life in them.
Louisville & Nashville was also weak. Wa
bash acted badly at one time during the
forenoon, but it rallied and managed to
keep to the front, but in a demoralized
condition. , There were very heavy sales of
Western Union all day During the last
hour the bulls seemed to lose courage or
their buying capacity was exhausted and
prices wilted steadily till the close. One
firm sold 6,000 shares of Western Union
while another took all offered at each
eighth decline until it reached 76.
This raid was evidently for the purpose
of breaking the balance, but it was a fail
ure. Coalers were the chief attraction
later. Pullman Palace for some ucex
plaizifci reason was 1 per cent, lower
than yesterday. A few shorls were
caught in Manitoba, judging from the
way it was marked up. Wabash proper
ties were weak on the report that the road
sold $5,000,000 of new bonds guaranteed
by the Iron Mountain or Missouri Pacific.
West Shore business is stated to be on tha
increase and bonds Bhowed considerable
strength. Centril & Hudson was the best
card among Vmjderbilts. Tho market
lacked animation at times, though there
was no particular pressure of stocks until
about tbe finish" when the bears did some
fcileoiive work all along the line, acd suc
ceeded in making a closing that was any

Washington, Feb. G.—The delegates to
the Mississippi river convention called at
the White house to-day in a body, and
paid their respects to the president.
Mr. Stanard, chairman, made a short
address, in which he expressed ths thanks
of the delegates to the president for the
interest shown in the Mississippi river
improvements, and the effort to secure
favorable action by congress. The presi -
dsnt replied briefly, saying his views on
this subject were well known, and had been
expressed in messages to congress. He
hoped that the convention would secure
the legislation desired, looking to a speedy
and permanent improvement of the great
Mississippi river.
When the Mississippi river convention
reassembled to-day delegates at once be
gan to pour in resolutions upon the chair,
most of which were referred immediately
to the committee on resolutions.
A Kansas delegate offered a resolution,
which was adopted, requesting the ser
geant-at-arms to display our national
flag in and about the hall during the meet
ing of the convention, especially on the
roatram and about the speaker's chair.
A resolution was adopted inviting Sena
tor Logan and members of the senate
Mississippi committee to visit tho con
Resolutions were presented looking to
the further improvement of the Tennessee
river and Vicksburg harbor; the enact
ment of a law requiring bridges to be so
located and constructed as not to endan
ger life and property and prevent obstruc
tion of navigable waters by railroads.
A resolution was passed inviting all
members of congress to attend the con
At this point a young man entered the
hall bringing a large American flag, which
was saluted with boisterous applause.
The flag was unfurled and placed on the
platform behind the president's ohair.
A resolution was offered and referred
approving the plans for improvement
made by the United State 3 engineer offi
cars; declaring that public works ought to
be done by officers of the United States;
that new work should be done by contract,
and no convicts employed . on any publio
works except public roads; find that con
creg3 should entertain no project to estab
lish artificial waterways until the condition
of navigable streams is improved.
Among other resolutions offered was one
urging an appropriation for the improve
ment of the navigation of the great lakes;
one urging also liberal appropriations to
enable the chief signal officer to improve
the signal service observation; one approv
ing of the Hennepin canal project. While
the resolutions were being offered Senator
Logan and his colleagues, that recently
examined the Mississippi river im
provements, entered the hall. The dele
gates rose and greeted them with loud ap
Logan was introduced and made a brief
( speech. Ha said the report of the com
mittee showed how the committee 'stood.
Senators Sawyer, Jones and Walker were
also called upon and spoke. Senator
Jones described rapidly the thorough ex
animation by the committee, and said he
trusted the report of the committee would
have its effect.
Senator Walker declared that "•< great
states of the Mississippi valley wero the
controlling power in the government.
G6n. Turner, of . Tennessee, offarod a joc
ular motion, that congress be requested
to make .an appropriation to pay the ex
penses of this convention. Mr. Lowrey,
of Missouri, took the floor and made a
lengthy speech on cheap transportation.
He said this convention did not come here
to petition congress, but to instruct the
young Democracy and Republicans of the
Mississippi valley. The speaker declared
that he will not follow any party that will
not advocate the policy of cheap trans
portation. The party, he said, that offers
the most substantial proofs of its ad
herence to these principles would nurtly
win in the next national campaign.
At this point the convention took a re
-0353 in order to give the committee on
resolutions an opportunity to report.
When the convention reassembled it was
announced that the committee on resolu
tions would not be able to complete the
report. A delegate said he understood
the committee was not harmonious in its
views. A resolution was thereupon
adopted instructing the committee to
make a report to-morrow morning. Gen.
Flojd King, of Louisiana, was invited on
the stage and addressed the delegates in a
brief speech, in which he advocated tha
cause of the convention. Mr. Turner, of
Tennessee, made a short speech in denun
ciation of tho spirit of intolerance form
erly shown towards projects for national
improvement in the south. H;b speech
was filled with quaint and humorous re
marks, and created shouts of laughter and
applause. Adjourned until to-morrow.
Chicago Packers Favor a Reasonable In
spection, to be Followed by Retaliatory
Measures if Not Effective.
|SpecialTelejjrfim to tns Globe. 1
Chicago, Feb. C. —The apparent growing
ascendency of tha extreme conservative
feeling in Washington respecting the pro
hibition of the importation of American
pork products into Germany and France
has been the subject of much remark on
'change the past few days. Many think
that the proposition to appoint an in
spector is a mere subterfuge and an at
tempt to dodge ac i3sue with importers.
Others characterize it as an oviience of
national cowardice. Mr. Philip Armoir,
however, voices the opinion generally en
tertained upon the subject by the paokers
and large provision merchants of the
northwest. Being asked what he thought
of the proposition to substitute a system
i of government inspection instead of adopt- !
ing retaliatory measures, he said:
•'That id a question for statesmen to ds
cide, and to say whether our commercial
treaties require such a step. The paokers
have no objections to the appointment of
government inspectors, though they vary
much doubt if their appointment wculd be
effective in removing prohibition; still they
have no objection to the plan being tried,
that is, if tha system of inspection inaugu
rated does not interfere with the ru«ning
of their business. They certainly would
object if inspection should be a microscop
ical one. That would be virtually as bad
as the German edict, as it would in fact be
"Would they be willing to pay inspect
ors' salaries, as it is proposed they
should ?"
"Well, that is really the buyer's affair.
The bayers always pay inspection fee?."
•'Are the packers willing to wait aud
have the effectiveness of the inspection
plan tried before retaliation shall be re
sorted to?"
'"Yes, provided power is given the presi
dent to institute retaliation ia case that
does not prove effective. That could be
done without injury to aoy one.''
"Do you think that there ia any hopo of
such a measure as you desiro being adopt
ed at thi3 session of congress-?"
"Well, it ia like this- tha whola north
west requires that eomsthing be dono at
once, and I would no: favor 'any position
or office which would indicate a postpone
"Lot the markets of the world be closed
against American pork and what will the
farmer of the northwest do with hi? cornr
It will be of no U3e to him because ho can
find nc out put for it, and the price of
laud throughout all this west and north
west country will go back to $1 as acre.
The purchasing power of people will be
destroyed and their products will
be valueless. This question
effects every dry goods merchant
and every member of every other calling
in Chicago, just as much and as directly
as "it does the packer. It is to farmers
they have all to look for the maintenance
of their trades and if you destroy the pur
ohasing power of the farmer, you destroy
all the trade of the city. Farmers know
and realize fully their interests. They are
alive to the importance to them of having
something done in tha matter and I tell
you I would not give much for the chances
of any one going before them who has re
fused to act vigorously in this matter."

result. The pericardium showed the re
sult of recent inflammation. Tho aorta
showed also extensive disease. The other
organs were healthy. Death resulted
from paralysis of the heart, due to the
causes stated. As soon aa the crowd wore
got into order by tho police, the public

fin was a ehcaf of wheat in ivy loaves,
bound with lavender ribbon. The w*dow

tho former, owing to ill health, and the
latter, being abroad. The services were
very Eimple, and consisted of singing tha
hymn "Angels of Consolation," by the
oiioir, the funeral hytna by all present, a
prayer by the Rev. Siinuel
May, and the benediction. As
soou as the coffin reached tho sidwalk
from tho church, the procession formed as

panies of a veteran corps, the hearee,
guarded by soldiers, and carriages. The
people crowded the sidewalks alotg the
entire route from the church to Fane ail
ball as they did the route from the honso to
the church. There were many evidences
of regret and eorrow aa th 9 hearse passed
by, and men remained uncovered until
the last carriage had disappeared.
A large force of policemen and
a great concourse, of people which had
been growing since 0 in the forenoon, met
the remains on their arrival at Faneuil
