Approaching Confliot of-Labor and Capital, on National Lines Wor 7 ries Financiers. * "U While the Stock Market Continues Heavy, the Money Market in Favorable Condition. , ' Special to the Minneapolis Journal. New York, May 1CThe Financial Age in its Weekly review of the situation says: There is no feature of the sltuatton that is worthy of as much thoughtful consideration as the labor problem. The development* of the past few weeks have further alienated employer and employe, and there la no longer a disposi tion on either side to make a pretense of har monious relationship. Employers from all over the country arc flocking to the support of the New York build ers In the war declared on organized labor, and there is a strong probability that a National Federation of Employers will be formed. Such an organization would be an offset to the Amer ican Federation of Labor, which claims to con trol 2,000,000 workingmen. It is folly to belittle the seriousness of the labor situation or to treat it as a problem which the future will dispose of. In the words of a prominent statesman, who is at present the ob ject of considerable popular attention, "we are confronted with a condition, not a theory," a condition which is disturbing business and im pairing confidence, and which must be met with the wisdom of a Solomon. AN APATHETIC STOCK MARKET. The heaviness of the stock market was ac companied by liquidation in many of the high priced shares. This liquidation was light, but the fact that it represented holdings of large Interests seems to dispose of the talk of promi nent financiers being in favor of an uplifting of prices at present. In fact a leading Stand ard Oil official stated last week that he saw no hope for market improvement at this time. This is the consensus of opinion in well informed circles, and in view of the apathy of the public and the disposition of banks to restrain specu lation, the market is not likely to show a marked tendency in either direction for some time. The mainstay of the market continues to be tho excellent railway earnings. Of the forty roads reporting gross earnings for the first week of May, thirty-seven showed increases amounting to $1,035,595, and the remaining three decreases aggregating $24,228, leaving the total net increase $1,011,367. Compared with last year the money market is in a much more favorable condition. During the corresponding week in 1902 the rate for call funds reached 25 per cent., while money Is now in ample supply at the unusually low figure of 2% per cent. This improved state of affairs is due to the fact that stock market speculation has been curtailed by the banks, which are pre paring for the requirements of the coming sum mer. Gold exports will probably be much lighter this spring and summer than in previous years. "We shipped $12,550,000 in the months of May, June, July and August last year $18,472,000 in the same months of 1001, and $41,660,000 in the similar period ,of 1900, while so far this year shipments have been insignificant. REACTION IN IRON AND STEEL, The feature of the situation in the industrial wnrld last week was the report that there had been a cut in the price of steel billets. This, however, was met with positive denials by of ficials of the United States Steel Corporation. That there had been a further reduction in pig Iron was in some quarters regarded as not'with out significance, apart altogether from the. steel billet outlook, while some interests - declared that whether or not there had been a cut In billots, it was a fact that in the iron, .and steel trades generally there are unmistakable signs of a reaction, with many large orders-(lately canceled. It Is noticeable that this talk' *f -a reaction comes from people connected! wTfhfthe Independent steel companies, while ftora bffl cialg of the United States Steel Corporation all the talk is encouraging and hopeful. The wild speculation which has been going on in the cotton market for the past ten days Is causing considerable concern to the textile in terests of Massachusetts, where the high price of the staple threatens temporarily to close sev eral of the large mills. The money market, al though not yet seriously affected by the specu lative whirl, will be unsettled by a continuance of the upward movement. The banks, therefore, may take a hand in the game, as they have previously done in the stock market, and force the "bull" leaders to curtail their operations. .Jvl V I - Private Wires. , .

JAMESTOWN, N.l SATURDAY EVENING, PRODUCE BRACES UP Butter and Eggs Show Much Better /:" Tone Than a Week ^? -vV, - : .Uv "/c^ Ago. i' The Fruit List Shows a Declining Tendency, Except on Straw- ' - , berries. IB? '-' After an extended season of depressed con ditions, the butter market shows a turn for the better, .with a sympathetic increase in values on all lines. The Jobbing call has not shown any particular activity, as large buyers generally are not disposed to top figures, but the Con suming classes have bought freely, and stocks have been kept moving in fairly good shape. Some complaint is beard that too large a pro portion of creamery makes shipped In as ex tras are not up to grade, and can not be moved out above quotations on firsts. Extras should score about 93 points on this market, to satisfy buyers. The call for dairies is of very good proportions, with some special well known makes bringing a slight premium above prices quoted. Packing stock is in good request, and buyers have forced up paying prices a full cent during the week, but insist upon fresh sweet goods at the higher figures, as the goods are wanted for renovating purposes. Eggs have shown some advance, and stocks are keeping well sold out. A large share of current arrivals continue to go into storage, but a continuation of the present warm spell of weather will cut off this outlet, and be likely to ease up values to some extent. Already the city retailers are demanding candled stock, In stead of case count as has prevailed the past sixty days. Cheese shows no quotable change as yet, but all indications point to a decline within a very short time. Factory asking prices are easing off, and as stocks on hand among the local trade are moderate, and new supplies are wanted, buyers will not load up unless values settle to the usual basis for this season of year. Outside of hens, which have shown an ad vance, the poultry market has ruled featureless. Neither receipts nor demand are of important proportions, and with a continuance of prevail ing conditions, prices will hold to a steady basis. In dressed meats, the situation shows slight improvement, although the market has not set tled to a normal condition. Farmers have been killing off a great many unpromising calves, and this has overloaded the market with unde sirable veal. Arrivals of fancy have been comparatively moderate, but the over-supply of poor, thin stock, which dealers have had to force out at almost any procurable price, has had a depressing Influence upon tops. Mutton and lambs hold to a steady basis, demand fully equalling the supply. Few dressed hogs are coming in. Green vegetables are becoming cheaper. Near ly all lines show a decline. Homegrown spin ach and asparagus are in market. There is no change in the apple situation. Values hold up firmly, as stocks are light. Pine apples are arriving in car lots, and selling fully twenty-five per cent under last weeks' prices. Strawberries are in generous supply, stock now arriving from Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri. Wet weather early in the Week caused many lots to arrive in poor condition, which caused fancy stock to firm up somewhat, but it Is probable that first-class berries will be billed out the coming week around $2.50 for 24 quart cases. Oranges and lemons are on a firm basis. Hot weather will boom the latter fruit. California cherries are coming by express. Early receipts were scant packed and not as good color as usual, and proved poor sellers. Car lots will be in in about ten days, as soon as the crop is more fully matured. Reports are to the effect that a large crop is promised. HIDESTFUR, WOOLTETC. ' REVIEW OF THE MARKET BY THE NORTH WESTERN HIDE. AND FUR. CO. This hide market might be termed a waiting market.

Member* of All Principal Exchanges, 8ma u 27 WILLIAM STREET, NEW YORK: We have in our Iron Queen group of mines a well-defined rein proved three thousand feet In length and with a probable length of more than two miles, proved five feet in width at the minimum and widening out in places to forty feet, and at least two thousand feet in depth with the probabilities in favor of its going below five thousand feet. Taking the minimum measurements and multi plying the three thousand feet in length by two thousand feet in depth and five feet in width", we get as the contents of the vein 30,000,000 cubic feet of ore, which will run ten cubic to the ton, giving us 3,000,000 tons. There is a net profit in this of at least 910 a!* ton over all expenses of mining and milling 3,000,000 tons at $10 a ton yield $30,000,000 in profits. This is from only one group of our properties. In the Cliff and Brookshlre groups, I believe the ore bodies to be even larger, richer and more valuable, but it takes longer to get at them and we have several other groups almost equally promising. I have had too much practical experience in mining to indulge In visions. I would rather underestimate than overestimate results. When the United Verde stock was first offered for sale I was asked to estimate upon the probable pro duction of the property, and my estimates came short of the reality. The game is true of my estimate'of the Greene Consolidated, with which I WOB connected. The people who bought the - Verde -upon my, recommendation have made 8,000 per cent upon their Investment In ten years. . The people who bought Greene Con solidatedalso upon my recommendationhave made 500 per cent in two years. I believe that the stock of the GEORGE A.

Railroad operations, now free from' conges tion, are very profitable, a fitting crown to the records of past prosperity being found In the April record of a gain of 14 per cent la gross receipts, which follows steady and increasing sains made yearly In that nionth since 1885. Capital has sought to be made in the stock market of the weakness of pig iron and reported decreases in steel, but the latter is decried, and, while production of iron is now in unprecedent ed volume, reliable statistics, of. stocks of this material show no accumulation. Steel is com ing in from abroad in enormous volume, and re ports for the fiscal year are the largest, with one exception, - in the country'sv history,, A slight revision of prices would, we believe, not be unpleaslng to domestic producers. Pig iron furnishes a notable exception to the strength of other staples, weakening, as it has, at all markets, thus Inducing a spreading.of stories that steel bulletB were lower at the west. No sign of weakness in finished steel and iron products can be found at the leading western centers, bu^ there Is a feeling that heavy lm-, ports of foreign billets may shortly affect prices for that product at seaboard markets. A sign, of strength in the finished, material line is the report that specifications for new work are com ing forward rapidly and that mills are pushed to keep up with their work. A favorably situated trade at present is that of shoes, eastern shipments of which show an in crease of 22 per cent over this week a year ago and 11 per cent for the season. Leather prices are strong. Hides are firm. Dress goods are reported moving well, while men's wear Is quiet, but a slight improvement in tone is noted. Old supplies of wool are held steadily, while new wool Is reported bringing l@2c advance Over last year's prices.14 Wheat,Maincluding flour, exports for the week Sn o^?o y ?i"of SC Jul a aggregate, 1,431,25 7 , against ^VSSL bu . laB t week 82 ' 79 5 and 2,704,504 bu In 1001. for the fiscal year exports are 58,442,016 bu, against 25,738,150 bu last season, and 160,926,862 bu In 1001.

''Mod^i Remarkable Growth of the Work f|||| in the Northwest ia Pastff "n 5jp||W. -Thirty-three Years. ,- Among the many lines of religious and reform work there is none so important to church and state as that among chil dren and youths. "One former is worth a thousand reformers 'it is far easier to build character than to rebuild." On such beliefs are based the work. The Ameri can Sunday School union was the pioneer in the work for the children. Organized In Philadelphia ^lay 17 1824, and now employing nearly 800 missionaries, It is the oldest Sunday school society in America and the largest in the world. Its record has been a remarkable one. An average of five Sunday schools have been the y cthe elevator of the old Board of Trade building. Being young and frivolously inclined, we were, I regret to say, about to In dulge in a mild libation. This interesting situ ation was interrupted by. the sudden appearance of 'Bill' Lincoln,, a well-known character on 'change, who rushed up to Pleronette and,said: 'Let me have $10 for a stake and I will go over to the open board and buy a thousand bushels of wheat.' 'What/ roared Pleronette, 'buy wheat In that.dd bucket shop? Not with my money. Come in and I will buy you a drink, but it shall not be said that I, a member of the board of trade, encouraged a man to buy his wheat in a place where he could buy thousands of bushels and carry away his holdings in k bucket.' The other witnesses to this christening of the open board (which was not Justified) and to the" coin ing of the word which ,was afterward universally used, were "Iron Jaw" Brady, "Fqg Horn" Shel don, and Henry Llnsde_n,. the proprietor of .the buffet, - * How Bucket- Shops Operate. "The expression, of course, referred to the system just being introduced by certain specu lators, which became the plan-of the bucket shop operators afterward, of taking bets on the stock and grain quotations, retaining a percentage of each amount placed with them, but never contem plating any delivery, the entire transaction being closed 6ut on quotations. Thus a man would go la and order a thousand bushels of wheat at say 73 cents, putting up $10. The bucket shop immediately deducted from this the sum" of one-eighth of 1 per cent as a commission, and if wheat went to 74 cents the speculator would receive his remaining $8.75 back, together with $10 winnings. If, on the contrary, the market fell to 72 cents, the speculator was wiped out lost his bet. That was all there was to It. The bucket shops never placed any orders with the exchanges, and thfere they differed from the stock jobbers of the present, who are often called bucket shop men. The stock jobber Is a man who takes a number ,of small orders from his customers, orders which individually are too small to be filled by. the stock exchanges, and places an order for the aggregate with a stock broker in his own name, parceling out the pur chase among his customers. "The stock jobber must place his orders, The bucket ship man .did not, but-simply conducted a guessing contest on the quotations, and if'was no more a legitimate business-operation than are the interesting trans actions over the faroja&le. ..', .

The society is union in fact as well as name, being entirely undenominational in its work and managed by a board of thirty-six managers chosen from various denominations, nine denominations now being represented. These managers are business.men. It is the only union Sun day school society doing missionary work. The missionaries organize and aid Sun day schools in needy districts, hold re ligious services, do pastoral work in homes and distribute Christian literature. They labor for the communities that are desti tute of religious privileges, especially the rural districts. The Annual Report. An .extract from the, report for the year just closed says: "One thousand eight hundred and eleven new Sunday schools were organized in destitute places, where the people had no religious privileges, and 682 others were reorganized, so that 2,493 were set in oper ation, against 2,375 in the year previous, containing 96,557 members, or 2,814 more than in the year before. But, as in pre ceding years, much time and care' have been given to the strengthening and cul ture of schools' already established, 14,167 fsuch visits having been made to them for and-, and raise it," continued1 'Mr . Doyle with a hu - morous twinkle in his eye. "But the bucket shop men must not be con demned too sweepingly. ' There were many good fellows among them. The real condemnation should be upon the Chicago Board of Trade, where there was then mpre bucket shopping than there was anywhere else on earth. "J"v - Distinction as to Stock Jobbers.'." ^ "So don't say bucket shop when you mean stock jobber, said Mr. Doyle. ' "The terms are not synonymous. In London, Throckmorton street, Threadneedle street and Capel court are honeycombed with stock jobbers and stock brok ers- A stock broker is, of course, a man who holds a membership on one .of the exchanges. A stock jobber has no membership, but, as I explained before, will buy a~lot of stock in his own name through a broker and deliver it in 'job lots' to his customer's. . IM* needless to state that the 'Old Lady of Threadneedle Strret' makes no distinction between the accounts of job bers and brokers in point of desirability. "This state of affairs f/dsting,- and bucket" shops being passe, any law-enactedagainst stock jobbers would be futile ,and for Wisconsin or any other state to try to prove illegitimate trad ing against them would bankrupt the state. It has been decided by the Chicago Board of Trade that a broker had-the right to buy 5,000 bushels of wheat or 250 tierces of lard, and'to divide it among five customers. Proposed Law Ineffective, v r-Vr The proposed law In this state Is unconstitu-* tional in two of its clauses. ' - One, where It re quires a legitimate broker to expose his books or else be classed as," a jobber. A broker's busi ness Is a profession", arid his dealings with his customers are as. htuch, professional secrets as are the transactions of doctor? and lawyers. The other clause is the one prohibiting the sending of orders from one state to another, which vio lates the interstate commerce law. - ' .""For .these reasons, I believe, the law offered at Madison would be a total failure, and in the^ event of- its passage it will not stand the test of, the courts. . But that's all you c"an expect from a bunch of legislators who-don't know the difference between No. 1 hard and Kansas screen ings, and who are trying to make railroad legis lation when they can't really tell a box car from a Scranton wheelbarrow. - , - "However, this has really nothing to do -with the origin of the bucket shop," and I have .to go home anyway." So saying, Mr. Doyle saun tered away, leaving the brokers to'think over the difference between, a real old-time bucket shop and the present semi-legalised concerns known as stock jobbers. buy a farm v the northwestern states is shown by the fact that when the present superintend ent, F. G. Knslgn of Chicago, took charge in 1870, there were but seven mission aries employed In the eight states in his district. Last year Mr. Ensign superin tended the work of 140 men and will have at least 150 this year. In his thirty- three- years of service 17,612 destitute communi ties have been evangelized by the estab lishment of Bible schools. Mr. Ensign is to spend Sunday, May 17, in Minneapolis, and will speak in the morning at the Fremont Avenue'Congre gational church and in the evening at Pilgrim Congregational church He is a man of wide experience and a forcible and entertaining speaker.

"During the year there were 259 mis sionaries employed, 116 of whom were at work the whole year and 143 a portion of it. The home department work has been continued with increasing vigor. The evangelistic labors of our missionaries have been followed with the largest re sults ever reached. The people have re ceived the messages of salvation with ea ger interest, and 10,384 hopeful conver sions have been reported. ".Visits to the homes of the people, with religious instruction and prayer, were made to the number of 206,744. This was 2,600 more - than in the previous year. Twenty-three thousand and twenty-eight sermons and addresses were delivered and 25,736 copies of the Word'of God dis tributed. One hundred and seven churches of different denominations were organ ized as the outcome of our schools, in addition to which a large number of for saken old churches have been reopened and preaching re-established in theni. Not only so, but regular preaching has been secured in many communities" where churches have not been organized. "These abundant results of our mission ary work in the- last year give marked evidence of a solid and substantial prog ress and growth. The increased appre ciation of the effective character of the work shows that it has obtained a strong hold upon the confidence of the good peo ple of our country, and affords a sure guarantee of its continued and generous support." - ' , A census of China recently taken by the Rei king government for the purpose of assessing taxes to meet the indemnity-payments-, seems to prove .the accuracy of the older estimates. The census shows that the eighteen provinces of China proper contain 407.737,305 inhabitants that Man? churla has 8,500,000 and Mongolia," Thibet and Chinese Turjcestan a little over 10.000.000., The total. population of the empire is 426,447,325, according to this enumeration. - The statement that the Chinese empire contains one-third pf the human race will hereafter be regarded wore ttian ever as an approximate, truth. - : .~* . % - - ' . . * - -'. , ^ * -...o*-, , ,x'~i,x"jt~iaif- :: \ Vb.t ft w^r#Mi%&%&&n* "The Short X4he,.to.

REGRETTED TO LET HIM 00 Leave-Taking of Rev. W. J. Mitchell and His Former Charge. The le&ve-taklng of Rev. W. J. Mitch ell, now of the House of Faith Presbyter ian church of this city, from his former charge at Princetown, N. Y., is interest ingly recounted in the Daily Union of Schenectady, N. Y, Not the least inter esting feature of the farewell reception tendered Mr. Mitchell was the presenta tion to Mr. Mitchell by* the congregation of a handsome gold watch and chain. It was given as a token of esteem and of the appreciation on the part of the people of the very excellent work done by Mr. Mitchell at Princetown. Mr. Mitchell ex pressed his gratitude not only for the gift but for the love that prompted it and spoke feelingly of his regret at leaving a church in which he had become so greatly interested. He closed with a parting word for those whom he had led into the church. Rev. J. B. Crawford, pastor of a neighboring church, Congratulated Mr. Mitchell and the church upon the effec tive work so harmoniously done by them. In its account of the reception the Daily Union says "Jt is with much regret and sorrow that the members of the congrega tion release Mr. Mitchell from the ties that bound him here, that he may enter into work where there are greater oppor tunities for usefulness. "During his sojourn in Princeton en couraging progress has been made along many lines, especially in the Y. P. S. C. B., where, as . president, he has introduced new methods that have proved very suc cessful." rv. ...v^ J^Worjc In Minnesota.:^ Vi 'p^ ' The Sunday School Union has been do ing work in Minnesota for forty ye^rs. Thousands of Bible schools have been es tablished and hundreds of churches' of various denominations have resulted from the work. In the past year 174 Sunday schools were planted in needy communi ties in the state, eight of these schools be ing in church buildings that w,ere vacant. As nearly two-thirds of the state's popu lation Is in the country, owing to the diversity of religious beliefs and nationali ties, only undenominational work can succeed lb most places. The importance of this work' is manifest. The work in Minnesota is under the immediate charge of State Missionary F. A. Bartlett of 833 Guaranty building, Min neapolis. - The^ following welT-known busl^. ness nien. aVe Vllce' presidents and advla-, era: tiavda C,. Bell,-John E. Bell, F-.W, Lyman, -Dr.- J-.
