heroine In lliuusVsMclmis rlay Is not a com
mcndablo exhibit In morals, but In this lnstanco
iho was a Miluablo oxomplo In art. Mme. Mod
jtiU Is long past lior youth nnd benutr. As
the entruuetr of young Armanit, ns tho bello of
her set and as tho victor nnd victim In encoun
ters of lute, she was Inovltably absurd from a
realistic point of lotv. Hut for that very rca
ion she was the best leachor that th? actresses
could have gone to. There was no glamour of
physical loveliness to provent instructive ob
servation or critical Judginont, The methods
ef the great nlajcr wero thus bared to dlslllu
lionized study. Thus lookod upon they wero

elocution, dcsplto the foreign accent which
mars It, Iho graphic conveyance of meaning In
every pose and gesture and tho seeming case
and spontanolty of It nil were accomplishments
vthleh every young actress should strive to ac

tDMoilJcBka'8 Idea Is that Camille wonld bo nb
orboil in her passion for Armand. nnd she re
veals this with a certainty and delicacy that

finished art. In tho same act her return to Ve
Varrille, as well ns her euddon return to.4r

Slodjeska takes to be Camille' a toolings thon.
Kven the attitude sho assumes in Armand'

The Interview with Durat and the parting
which follows were always the best incidents
If llodjeska's Camillt, and to excel In them is to
do most that can bo dnno with the role. Ilor
finaUyleldlng to Ihtcal's persuasions and her
lst words with him were deeply pathetic, but
In that respect they wero less effective than tho
writing of the farewoll letter to Armand. That
was the best point of her performance yestor
lay af ternoon, and, as a portrayal of utter, hope
less daipair, it was superbly effective. Her
acting when It canw to tho word "parting"
has some familiar force. Mora than either
Bernhardt or Duso she elaborates this scene. Sho
starts twice to write tho letter, destroys each ef
fort, and, finally, after taking more tlmo in do

Armand. enters. In'tho following passage with
Armand, when she loaves him alone, there is
a loss of power which the preceding incidents
I had not disclosed. No better model could be
taken to-dav than Modjesko, alio should, at
lust, be able to convince actors that abiding
results can be obtained only by ccascloss work
and constant study. It is many yoara since
beauty and youth.bolped her to engrof a an audi
ence. Her forco has waned, for sho has been In
Uli health. It Is her splendidly artistic method
which keeps her an interesting actress and
which will keep her so as long as lio is able to
appear. VestcrdAy afternoon the intermissions
were again Intolerably long, and there was lit
tle necessity for lt,.u the scenery was pitifully
scant and tawdry. Joseph Uaworth was a vo
hmcnt and earnest Armand, but It Is not ono
of his best efforts.
An event significant of recent developments
In vauderlllo va3 the trial at Pastor's yester
day of a new short play in which three actors
mode their first appearance in a variety per
formance. Indications of its tentative charac
ter were abundant. The programmes did not
mention It. The nrosccnlum cards bora tho
words, "Extra Turn." Yet the chief player
vis Henry Uagge, both his assistants wero capa
ble, and tho slxtcen-mlnuto farce was sufficient
ly dlrerting to insure its three interpreters
steady employment in vaudovllle for some
time. Antonio Pastor, from a seat near tho
piano player, laughed like a schoolboy over It,
though ho has seen several sketches before.
Most of the fun came from a husband's decep
tion of his wife. First Bhe was found bewail
ing her husband's continued absenoo and tho
inability of the police to get track of him. Then
hubby appeared with a companion whom ho
had picked up to share his three days' carouse.
These two were utterly at sea as to where they
had been, what they had dono or how long thoy
had been doing it, and in seeking the date from
a newspaper ran across Btartling headlines an
nouncing a murder, nnu bvcamo convinced that
they were somehow concerned in tho killing,
in this the husband bullied tho other chup,
whoso penes we.ro badly shaken, threatening
him with Uio law's punishment for his mUdcod,
and tearing him out of his wits. With tho

Clando B. Farrlngton, who lives at 311 "West
121st street, visited tho Criminal Court build
ng yesterday and going to the oftlca of the chiof
dork of tho General Sessions asked permission
to look over tho papers In two cases In which
ho had been indlotcd for grand larcony. Far
rlngton at ono time was superintendent of the
National Academy of Design and was indicted
on a charge of being short $023 in his accounts.
Tho complaining witness against htm was Jo
seph A. U Gardnor, auditor ot tho academy.
In May, 1HU7, Farrlngton In making up his
accounts discovered tho shortage). lie had
boon overtaxed with work and as soon as ho
discovered tho shortage ho informed Gardner,
saying that ho lntonded to mako tho amount
good anOxplalnlng that probably owing to bis
loose way ot doing business his accounts had
got tangled tip, Gardner immediately re
ported tho matter to tho Treasurer of tho acad
emy aud Kurrlngton'a indictment followed.
Ho was arrested on June 8 nnd oonfinod in tho
Tombs until Kept, 18, when ho was released on
91,000 ball.
Gardner remained auditor of tho Acadomr
ot Design until Dec. 1, 1HU7. Farrlngton al
leged that Gardner was short in his accounts.
This Gardner denleel nnd blamed Farrlngton,
saying that ha was short If-V-IOD. Farrinittou
claimed that he was innocent of all wrongdoing,
and every ono who know him believed ho was
a tuuoh abused man.
Un Jan. 4, 1HD8. David Mitchell, who was
then an Assistant District Attorney, mado a
motion boforo Judgo McMahon in the Court of
General Sessions to dismiss tho indictments
against Farrlngton. Judgo McMevhon did so
after Mr, Mitchell bad Indorsed the papers as
"In this enso the complaining wltnoss, the
National Academy of Design, has requosted a
withdrawal of tho lndletmonts and asked that
tho lndletmonts bo dismissed. I have lookod
Into the evidence., and am satisfied that no
conviction could bo had. The only person who
could testify ns to tho main facts appears to
be a defaulter hlmsolf nnd hns left the jurisdic
tion of this court, nnd I am satisfied that no
Jury, it ho could bo had, would place any re
lane'o on lila tcnttmonv. Tho errntlo conduct
ot the defendant for u year or more previous
to the finding of tho indictments convinces nis
that any ot tho alleged lrregularltlos In his
books were tho result of mental Irregularities
rather than of criminal intent. A lunacy com
mission was appointed to inquire into the sani
ty of defendant, nnd although It. reported that
ltj thought; tho defendant; sane, yet it was so
closo a case t tint tho court upon lis own motion
rcdurod tho ball."
Fnrrlngton said yesterday that there was no
doubt but ho was suffering from mental trouble
nt the timo bo uindo tbo mistakes accredited to
him. llo said that he was doing tho work ot
two men. Ho hail boen employed in tho Acado
my from 1HII0 until 181)7, but had no trouble,
ho said, until May 1 of last year, when ho de
manded that an, assistant be appointed to help
htm in his work. He resigned bncauso ho did
not go, an assistant.
"This matter has ruined me," said Farrlngton
ycstenlnv. "Whilo tho indictmont papers havo
boon (indorsed In a manner that vindicates mo,
I am now a brokon man. I havo been unable to
got employment anywhoro. I am looked down
upon and snubbed by my old friends, and the
mombers of my family are greatly annoyed. My
wife is "hoartbrokon. All this was brought
upon mo by Gardner, who was arrested last
night In tho Hoffman House on a charge of at
tmpting to steal a clock, but who, I heard, was
mleaecd In pollco court to-day."
Gardner, who was nrrestod in one of tho par
lors of the Hoffman House un Tuesday evening,
was discharged in tho Jefferson Market Court
yesterday besuee of insufficient evidence.

Prof. Fredcriok It. Hutton of tho depart
ment of mechanical engineering of Columbia
University announced yesterday afternoon that
a full-slzod high-speed passenger locomotive,
valued at over $12,000, had just been given to
the engineering school. It is the latest of a
series of donations mads within the past few
months to this department. It makes the
aggregate valuo of thoso gifts almost $00,000.
Tho engine is a standard compound passenger
locomotive. It was designed by 8. M. Vau
claln. and was exhibited In tho Transportation
building at tho World's Fair. It has been in
successful oporation over since It la known
as tho Columbia. It was presented by the
Baldwin Locomotive Works otPniladelphia,
It will cost $3,fl00 to transport this new ac
quisition and to set It up properly in its new
surrounding.,. This amount is to bo given by a
friend, it is announced. It is to bo placed in
the lnrgo mechanical laboratory between Have
incyer llnll and tho Knglneoring building. It
will Btnnd near tho Uoulevard door. It will be
mounted on friction wheels fitted with brakes,
so tnat tbo engine can bo run at its highest
spceel. It will tio supplied also with the proper
appliances, so that its tractive power at vari
ous speeds may bo measured. The students
mar test tho consumption of fuel and tho devel
opment of power In general. It is expected also
that a special course In locomotive designing
will be added to tho regular work.
Tho locomotive Is one of a group of exceeding
ly valuable machines recently given to the me
chanical engineering department, C. C. Wor
tblngton has presented, in memory of his father,
ioiuo hydraulic mnchlnory valued nt SilO.OOO.
llesldes pumps of notablo capacity, his gift in
cludes accumulative metors and facilities for
measuring the flow of water and tho verification
of formulas and constants. William W. Allls of
Milwaukee in memory of his father, has given
a trlplo expansion mnrlno engine nf tho typo
used in tho navy. The battleship Maine was
equipped with tho same kind. An air compressor
oliiiSo pounds pressure Is attached In order to
furnish rcsistanco. so that tho engine may bo
run at its highest speed, and nlso that tho prac
tical efficiency of compressed air as a means
of storing anil transmitting power on a practi
cal scalo may be tcstod. This new laboratory
will not bo ready for use. Prof. Hutton says,
until noxl fntl.
President I,ow has Just gion $3,000 for the

WxauiNQTOK, Fob. 10. Despite tbe fact that
from time to time during the last few months
Treasurer Roberts has reminded the United
States Sub-Treasnry that the gold reserve is as
large as desired by the Treasury authorities,
tbo flow ot gold into tbo Treasury has steadily
incroaeed. The rcsorve yesterday was Increased
by 9240,000. although almost as much was sold
from Its bullion stock for use in tbe fine arts
and paid for lu currency. The reserve yester
day amounted lof10n,102,009. Treasurer Ilob
ertssald to-day that otlorts aro being mado In
New York to turn in gold In exebnnge for cur
rency at Western points, especially Cincinnati
and St. Louis. This results In a saving of ex
change nnd transportation charges. In New
York gold is in excess, aud at other points cur
rency is In demand. This demand is strong in
tho middle West, having been transferred from
tho far West after tho need for money to movo
crops had passed. It Is belioved that the flow of
gold into tho Trensury will continue. About
5 1.000,000 per month comes from customs
sources alone.

WjkSltlKOTOif, Feb. 10. Tho Bennto discussed
to-day, but without having a vote taken on It,
the resolution .against tho confirmation of tho
solo of the Kansas Paolfio Ilallroad. The dis
cussion was interrupted by an oxecutlvo ses
sion, and after the legislative session was re
sumed the Senate took up tho Fortifications
Appropriation bill. After a rather Important
and interesting dobate, tho prevailing senti
ment being In favor ot liberal appropriations
for coastwiso defences, tho hill was passed.
The bill carried an appropriation of 94,144,011
as passod by tho House, but the Senate com
mutes had Increased tho amount to $0,052,
4.04. Tho prlnolpsl itoms ot incrcaso wore in
thoso for construction ot gun and mortar bat
terios from $1,000,000 to $3,000,000 and for
steel breeoh-loading mortars ot 12-inch calibre
and carriages therefor by $1,600,000. Tho
committee amendments wore all o greed to with
ouCqucstlon. In explalnlngtthe report of tho
Commltteo on Appropriations Mr. Perkins said
that all the members of tho commltteo wero
"peace men, but not at tho sacrifice of tho honor
of tho country," They had, therefore, reported
as largo an appropriation for this year as was
made for last year. They favored tho carry
ing outlot thcCgcncral clan of fortifications rec
ommonded by tho Endlcott Board, and to com
ploto It within tho next eight or ton yoara. There
should be, he said, no plcayunish economy In
placing tho seaports ot tho Unltod States in
such' a state of dctenco as would protoct them
against tho combined navies ot the world.
Mr, Stewart (Pop., Nov.) could not under
stand why, with a surplus of $210,000,000 In
the Treasury, tho full amount of estimate for
fortifications (somo $13,000,000) had not been
recommended by tho commltteo. He thought
that tho bill should be iucroasod in accordance
with tho estimates.
Mr, Chnndlor (Hep., N, II.) coincided In that
view, and suggested that amendments bo of
fered: Increasing the scvral Items.
Acting on that suggestion Mr. Stewart moved
to increase tho item for gun and mortar bat
terlos from one million in tho Houso bill, and
from three millions, tho Senato amendment, to
five millions.
Mr. Hale (Hop., Me.) said that It tho Senator
thought it better, in vlow of tho attitude of tbo
Houso, to incroaso tho bill to tho lnrgost etti
ates of the department, rather than take the
moderate but still largo appropriation reported
in the bill, tho Commltteo on Appropriations
would accept tho decision, llut ho favored tho
bill as reported.
Mr. Stewart suggested that if the country got
into trouble with even a very wonk power thuro
might be more property destroyed In a slnglo
day than tbe whole amount cstlmntod for by tho
department. He would have that full amount
appropriated, and would thon let tho House
tako tho responsibility of cutting It down.
Mr. Gorman (Dom., Md.) declared himself as
willing to assume his full share of responsibility
in mating a sufficient appropriation for works
of national defence, but still he '.thought that
ten millions a year was as much as could bo
used advantageously now. In view ot the ma
terial and personnel ot tho War Department.
Now 'bat war was not threatened. It would not
be wise to do more. Tbe wiso thing to do, tho
strong thing to do, was to Increase the aupro
priation to the amount of nlno or ten millions,
and stand on that proposition. Ho was ns
much In favor of oconomr as nny Senator, but
ho would not agree to abandon n schemo of
t ortificatiouswhat both houses of Congress had
agreed to some years ago. When the Demo
crats were in power they insisted on ten mil
lions for fortifications, and now that tho Re
publicans wero In power, with conditions more
threatening, they ought to adhere to the
Mr. Hawloy (Rep., Conn.), Chairman of tho
Committee on Military Affairs, eald he did not
agrse,wllh?benators wno thought that the whole
thirteon millions estimated for could not bo
usefully expended In tho year. Ho said that
390 largo guns nnd 232 mortars were to be rcudv
on the first: of July noxt, and there wore no ar
tillerymen to oven keep thousand out of their
muziles. There were no men trained to work
them. He would bring before the Sennto In a
tow days a bill for two additional urtlllcry regi
ments, 1.610 men, a vcr moderate forco, but
enough perhaps (with the aid of the existing ar
tillery) to put a good team on each of tbo guns.
Mr. Lodge (Itep., Mass.) said that he wanted
to see a proper apprnptiatlon for tho great de
fenceless cities of tbe coast, nnd that bo did not
think the House bill a creditable bill. Thoro
never was ajtlme when soacoast defences were
more needenl than now.
Mr. Teller of Colorado was willing to voto for
any apnroprlatlon that was necessary and that
could bo expended economically, llo did not
believe that the United States wus rolng
to have any war. Yet there never was a
tlmo in tho hiBtory of Ithe world when
there was a greater prospect of great wars than
to-day. It the world escaped n great tvar for
ten years, ho should be very much mistaken.
He would not havo tho United States cngago In
any knight-errantry business.
Heiwould not havo thoTnatlon go out with a
chip on its ehouldcr. llut ho would havo It
perform the duty which is incumbent upon
every groat nation. Ho would desplso r. man
who fniled to Interfere whcnlho saw- a child
abused by a strong man, and a nation which
was strong enough to say that tho laws ot na
tions must be observed lu discussions between
natlonswd did notdoit was equally as coward
ly as tlio man who would not protect a child
from abuse. If the United States Govern
ment had said to Spain two years ago, as ho
had proposed, "Conduct tholwnr according to
civilized usages," more than a eiunrtcr of n mil
lion men who were now in theirtlira csj would
have been alive, and hundreds ami thousands
ot inn now going to tnclr graves would have
been saved. So that In preparing the great
agencies of war they wore also preparing tlio
agencios of peace, and wero maintaining the
dlgnltv.und glory of the American people.
Mr. Chandler urgod tho Senate to present
such a united front in favor of doubling the ap
propriation in the bill as would convince tho
Houso thatht would bo unwlso and lnjuriousand
unpatriotic to cut down tbo appropriations of
last year one-halt ar a tlmo when tbcrowuro
suggestions ot war closo to our own doors.
Mir. Stewart withdrew his amondmmit, say
ing that thuro was n ennconsuu ot opinion to
pass the bill as amended by tho commltteo. Tbo
item of $050,000 for powder and projectiles
was Increased to $1150,000, nnd then the bill
was parsed and tho Sonate at (1:10 adjourned.

Miss Far'.Templcton, who is to coma baok to
Now York, has not exhibited during reoent
years any particular dovotton to her profession,
and when sho resumes tt there ore ccncrnlly
good reasons to bellovo that she does so beoause
she 'hns to, or at all events because the addi
tion of a few hundred dollars a week to hor in
come would not bo unappreciated. Miss Tern
plcton has been an actress over since sho was
very young. That tact has allowed hor to
havo n considerable period ot aotlvtty onjthe
stage, although sho is, of courso, quite as young
now as it Is necessary for anybody to be. Her
career as a child aotress robbed hor of any illu
sions as to tho gayoty of stage life, and she was
perfectly willing so soon as the opportunity
presented ltsolf to abandon the delights of bur
lesquo fdr tho pleasures of life In Paris. When
sho returned to this country threo years ago It
was on account of business matters connected
with tho settlement of an estate In which she
was Intcreitotl.and the ultimate turn which that
matter has taken Is bollovexl to be responsible
for her present roturn to New York and the
music halls. Her periodic returns to tho stage
aro alwavs preceded by a period of fasting even
If not of prayer, nccoasary even It trying to

Tho crush of vehicles on Droadway between
Thirty-eighth street and Fortieth street as the
opera houso and the thoatros in tho neighbor
hood dismiss their audiences is great enough to
causo many accidents, and tbe wondor has so
far been that serious results were not more fre
quent. Tho number of carriages at tho Metro
politan is, of course, many times larger than
that at tho othor two theatres, and undor ordi
nary circumstances tho audiences at tho opera
houso aro dismissed at a later hour. But some
times tho crowd.) leavo simultaneously and tho
crush ot carriages In every direction is confus
ing to evon persons accustomed to the scene.
The vehicles coming from tho two sldo entrances
nf the Metropolitan mako Thirty-ninth and
Fortloth streots almost lmpossahlo nnd car
riages aro four or flvo deep at the Broadway on
trance. Added to this aro tho lines that are
usually found nt tbo Empire, tho Knickerbocker
nnd tho llroadwny. Another element of con
fusion comes from the cable oars, which are
stopped when tho signal Is given from the opera
bouso a fow moments before tbo curtain falls.
Thoy wnlt for passengers so long that a line la
formed which extends for eoveral blocks above
thu theatre, adding a fresh peril to tho task ot
cruising Broadway. It Is too late now to at
tempt any regulation ot the nulsanco as tho
present opera season has only ono week to last,
llut next yoar some oxpllclt plan of procedure
should be arranged and tbe confusion now com
mon might readily be prevented by some well
arrnngod scheme whlcn the police could on
force. Nowadays there are not enough pollco
men In sight nt the time to enforco even tho
rules of senso In dealing with such crowds.
The meeting held on Tuesday to discuss
plans for establishing a permanent orchestra in
Now York city brought out tho fact that a
number of very cnthuslastlo women wero con
cerned In tho onterprlso and tbe rather dis
couraging conviction that $1,000,000 would be
needed to make tho project possible. That the
organization, It established, would soon be self
supporting nobody doubts. Tho project, from
tho experience ot Boston nnd Chicago, has been
shown to bo entirely practical; but the money
must bo first subscribed before tbo success of
tho undertaking can bo assured, and it Is that
feature of the onterprlso which makes It diffi
cult to convince wealthy men how easily the
right result could bo accomplished. The last
previous effort in Now York toward tho estab
lishment of something like a permanent or
chestra wns not successful. A certain number
of wealthy men put up enough money to keep
nn orchestra for live years. It was found at
the end of that tlmo tbnt tbe money wns all
gone and that tbe city was ns far as ever from
possessing nn orchestra Independent of popular
HUpport. Thirty years .ago saw the first at
tempt In New York to establish a permanent
orchestra nnd there have slnco been several
others; hut none of thorn ever started with
greater enthusiasm than the present enter
prise, nnd It the attention ot the necessary
millionaires can only be attracted the scheme
ought to mcot with success. As an evidence of
thu possible practical success of the proposed
organization there Is Maurice Orau's offer to
hl-u tho orchestra for the ope'ra houso nnd pay
$110,000 a enon for tho tervlces as well us tho
sum of $'J5,000 from Brooklyn for aBorlesof
concerts there. The whole scheme looks plausi
ble and easy enough, and tho only doleful part
about tho last nicotine was the absolute ab
bcnco of millionaires. But they may come to
tho next.
Whon the name of a notorious French woman
was mentioned several years ago in connection
with a widely discussed divorce there was end
less surmise us to bcr Identity. The yellow
Journal which suddenly announced that It had
discovered that sho was an Amorlcon who
had llvod in San Francisco excited the envy of
its rivals, which fell into lint and prlntod stories
of tho samo kind. The fact that she was noth
ing of tho kind had no perceptible effect in
diminishing tho popularity of the story, Tho
pretence of this woman In New York now Is
being discussed with Interest by tbo samo jour
nals which discovered a woman at a publlo ball
who was no more the Paris celebrity than tho
Han Francisco woman Is. So tbe old story of
her American origin is being reprinted. Its
sole foundation Is tho rosemblnnco of tho name
of tho French woman nnu that ot an American
woman who threo or four years ago went on
tho stage. Tho latter came from San Fran
cisco unit was divorced from bor husband.
That wus enough for tho yellow journals, which
wero Immediately convinced that the Parisian
was thu American In spite ot the fact that the
latter was lu Now York all tho time that theso
stories were told and written about ber. To
this dny they are revived whonover thero is an
opportunity to mention the French woman's
The approach of a publlo ball in New York, or
of 6umo other entertainment that artists aro anx
ious to attend, always has one effect which Is
profitable to somo of the shopkeepors, evon If It
does result in a loss to the artists thcmsolves.
"We can ulwnys toll," said a man in charge of
tho art department lu a store which includes
this branch ot buslnoss along with its other
a'tlvltlcs,"when a big ball or some other occasion
which Is likely to appeal to artists Is about to
tako place. It is then that wa get tlio oppor
tunity to buy pictures at prices cheaper than at
any other time. They are not only thu wurk ot
unsuccessful young painters, but thoy come as
well from mon who have well-known namos in
their profession. It is tho lack of ready rash
which Ioii(,s them to pnrt with works which
they know are not likely to be sold boforo the
time they want to use money. Usually they
bring tho' pictures here, ask a certain sum for
them which Is nut high In Itself, and genornlly
tako considerably less. The prlco Is usually
governed by the) amount thoy want to spend.
Artists come to us nt all times to sell Pictures,
nnd they offer them at greatly reduced priaos.
But It is easy to tell when some festivity Is np
pru tilling, for then they como in larger num
bers, and they nro very much less Insistent in
thu matter of price, so long as It loashos a cer
tain amount. Ono Instance of that was an
nrtlxt wliocumo to mo before u rucent big publlo

Report That Armour lias Had lo Send Agents
to the Merthwret ts (Mean Vp What Vf heat
Tfaa Loose So as to Return Tfhent Ho nar
rowed Recently to Sell to Irftlter The Prices.
Ciiioaoo, Fob, 10. May wheat to-day com
manded tbo highest prlco paid for that option
on tho local oxchongo slnco 1801. Joseph LeiUr
has securely cornored tho May market, and
plays fast and looso with tho tsars ot a tre
mendous short Interest. Ho is showing him
self to bo by all odds tho most remarkable fac
tor ever encountered in tho local market. Ones
more tho battlo between Armour and Loiter Is
being witnessed. Vnguo rumors from the
Northwost showing that somo big forces were at
work thoro revealed themsolvos to-day in the
ahapo of faots. Armour Is reported to havo
sont his brokers to tho Northwest region soversl
days ago to buy all tho cash wheat In sight. It
la said that Armour wants to return an equiva
lent for tho wheat which It Is asserted ho bor
rowodlfrom Poavey to deliver to Loiter on De
cember contracts. Tho truth of this, however,
Mr. Armour positively denlos.
This step was taken, It was said with
assurance to unload a largo quantity of
May wheat in this city, and thus main
tain bis preatlgo over tbo "young unbaked
Leltor." No sooner did "Joo" Letter hoar
of tills flank movement than ho began to Plan a
coup. To-day Instructions were forwarded to
nil of Letter's brokers In the Northwest to fol
low up Armour's agents and bid 9, 3, and 4
cents higher than Armour on ail wheat olored
to tho latter.
AlthoughiArmonr denlesCtha report of borrow
ing from Peavey, a leading broker is author
ity for tho statement that Armour placed a
check for $3,000,000 lt tho Northwostcm Na
tional Bank, payable to tbe order of Peavey to
Insure the return of a large' quantity ot wheat
which Armour secured from Poavoy to cover
his December short lino. To what extent Ar
mour hns obtained cash wheat to cancel those
obligations Is amntter of conjecture, but one
fact is probablo and that Is Armour had to pay
a premium and had to wrestle;hard with Lei
tor's agont'to. secure cash wheat in tho North
west. In faoi it is said authoritatively that
Armour's bands are empty and that his scour
ing campalgnwas In vain.
May wheat was run up to 103 to-day on tho
growing realization that Letter has the local
markot where It cannot so much as move with
out his word. Charles Countelman, ono of the
local elevator owners, loft for on extended tour
In Eurono soveralmonths ago a confirmed bear.
Ycstordav Mr. Counsclman returned, nnd In a
letter sentoutby hlm'to-day to hlsfrlends paints
tbo most radically bullish picture ot European
wheat stocks that has boon received In
the local markot slnco Armour returned,
and predicted that tho price ot whoattwould
skylark to $1.25 a bushel In answer to no other
agency than that of supply nnd demand.
May wheat fell W and olo.icd at 103
Toward tho end ot the session July wheat at
tracted much attention nnd sold as high as

wheat and calls wero bid up to llOJs.

Prison. Ryan had been convicted ot assaulting
Police OfilcertMulhearn of Elizabeth. When ar
ralgnod for sentence a week ago ho pleaded for

An investigation proved Ryan to bo nn old
criminal and jail bird. This morning Judge Mc

history and sentenced him to two years in State
The sentence had hardly been pronounced
when Ryan Jumped over tno railing, uttorlng

Oa tke Way the Stoamer soiled a Boras Trot
and Vaswesl a raale.
After being tied up for the last two weeks on
aorount of tho frozen condition ot tbo Hudson
Hirer tho steamer Newburg ot tho Ramsdoll
lino made a successful effort on Tuesday to re
sumo navigation between New York and New
burg. Attar leaving her pier at Franklin
street, this city, early In tho morning sho met
considerable floating lea until she reached Ver
plancks Point. From there tip the rlvor was
completely frozen ovsr with Ice ot various
Through this the steamer pnshed her way
valiantly, and no difficulty was experienced
until sho lounded West Point. From there to
Cornwull she had hard fighting. At Cold Spring
hundreds ot persons were on the tee ongaged Id
a programmo of sports. A horse-trot on tbe ice
had been arranged as one of tho special features.
Whilo tbo preparations for this wero going on
a lnrgo part of the crowd stood Idly waiting for
thn sport to begin.
Tho Newburg has recently been specially
equipped for battling with the ice, and in the
holght of the Impromptu sports the surprlso
and consternation of tbe people can be Imagined
upon suddenly seeing tho powerful steamer
crashing through tbo floes and beading for
them. Her bows could be seen In tho dlstanco
climbing upon the lco nnd with her weight
breaking It down and opening a way.
At this strange sight tho steamboat men say
tbo people beoamo panlo strlckon and started
for tbe shore. Strange to say, nlmost all mads
a rush for the opposite side from that on which
they lived. When tho Newburg had passod
they were exiled from their homes by the foam
ing waters In the vessel's track. Presently
somo ono suggested a pontoon bridge; the idea
was quickly acted upon by willing hands, nnd
thn fugltlvos were enabled to return to their
homes. The horso trot was indefinitely post
poned. Notwithstanding the Increased lowor
temporaturo of the weatbor yesterday the New
burg started out forNowtmrg again.
