NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.
NEW YORK, Aug. 5.?The stream of
speculative and investment money
continued to pour In stocks and bonds
today without interruptions.
Prices throughout the list were lift?
ed sharply. The profit taking move?
ment which has been a drag on the
leading industrials for several days
past was apparently ended today, and
the bears who sold these stocks early
on the assumption that realizing was
still in progress,were forced to buy back
later. The result was to bring the In?
dustrials into the general current of the
market which moved upward with a
tidal sweep. The railroads themselves
were somewhat unsettled at the opening
and most of the leading stocks declin?
ed 1-S to 1-2 before the upward move?
ment of prices set in. The opening
weakness was in sympathy with Lon?
don and the quickness with which It
was overcome was a striking evidence
of the independence of the local stocks
exchange. There was quite a serious
depression both in London and in Paris
on the reported friction between Rus?
sia and Great Britain, and there wan
quite urgent selling here for London
account, but the supply of American
j securities has been so far reduced In
I the past year that the disposition of
foreign holders to buy or sell has very
much less influence than formerly. The
I aggressive buying which has been no?
ticed in Wall street for several days
quickly turned prices upwards and
gained in volume on the advance.
Burlington continued to be the leader
and scored an extreme advance of 2 3-4.
There was some disposition to realize
in the last hour but a decline of a fritc
tion quickly reduced the market to
dullness. Possibly the final spurt in
Burlington was used to cover some
rather extensive realizing at other
points. There was talk in Wall street
of an agreement to advance prices
which included a number of interests
controlling a vast wealth. That the
buying came from a combination of
very powerful interests was quite evi?
dent, but that it was based on the as?
sumption of a future raise in values
and a demand from the general pub
lie for stocks is equally certain.

Mr. E. R. Hyde Tells About
Porto Rico.
AN ISLAND -PARADISE
CottHl I'OVIT HIKl SlUHllpUX, lll>? OV.T, 11 r
tbe Ncouriigex or the Country. Kit II
u'uy ordtiiiiuee Aiiiemleil.
Oilier Mutters.
Among the-passengers on the United
States transport Obdam, from Ponce,
Port.i Kloo, whieh arrived in Hampton
Bonds yesterday, was Mr. E. H. Hyde,
of the Voting Men's Christian Associa?
tion. Mr. Hyde has been engaged in
religious work among the soldiers Tor
some lime and went to the tropical is?
land with General Miles on the auxil?
iary cruiser Vale. He has with him a
number of relics of the light at Guenu
ea. among which are a Mauser bullet
pit lied up on the battlefield, several
buttons from the clothing of Spanish
officers and a water-pot used by the
Porto 1 titans.
Mr. Hyde was a witness of the Glou?
cester's venture into the harbor or
Guinaca. Me describes it as an art as
daring as it was successful. Lieuten?
ant Vyainwright had made up ills mind
to enter the harbor and compel the
town to surrender, and he did so with?
out stopping t\> consider the question as
to how many mines and torpedoes were
under the water ready to blow up his
saucy little ship. The Spaniards had
not forgotten to place them at conven?
ient points, but the Clou, ester was
lucky enough to escape a collision with
any of them.
Mr. Hyde says that the people of Por?
to Rieo as far as the American troops
have gone are extending to them a most
enthusiastic- welcome. In doing this
they aie not influenced by fear, ror the
Polo means ar.- a much more intelli?
gent people than those of Cuba. They
know that there is no truth in the
stories of cruelty practiced by Yankees
according to Spanish averment., whieh
is more than they can say for the rep?
resentatives of the government under
which they have lived all their lives.
Mr. Hyde relates that in every town
whieh General Miles' troops have en?
teret! the most joyful demonstrations
have occurred. The commander of the
American army is looked upon as a
great deliverer. In Ponce the people
Hocked around General Miles by hun?
dreds, each eager for the honor of
shaking hands with him. Some even
sought t.? embrace him and a few suc?
ceeded in placing their arms around his
neck. The general did not permit his
dignity to got the better of good judg?
ment and patiently submitted to their
exuberant manifestations-of friendship.
The news of the arrival of a. body of
soldiers in one town soon spread to an?
other, and preparations were quickly
made to welcome them with joyful ac
ela mations.
Mr. Hyde says that Porto Rico Is an
Island paradise. A more beautiful
country was never seen. The country
is now passing through the rainy sea
sol. Copious showers fall every after?
noon and come on so suddenly that a
person a short distance from a house Is
drenched before lie can reach its shel?
ter. He says that one do'es not surfer
as much from heat in Porto Rico as In
this section. During August and Sep?
tember persons unused to the Climate
are likely to fall victims to coast fever,
a disease which hangs on for weeks. A
few days after contracting the fever
one feels quite well and concludes that
lie has recovered, but in less than twen?
ty-four hours lie is likely to feel like
killing himself. The Porto Ricans.
however, are not troubled by Yellow
Jack. In the mountains smallpox ex?
ist all the year round. '?*"

A Successful Aeri-I Event at ISuekroe
B?aeh.
A thousand people braved the lays
of the blazing August sun yesterday
afternoon at Euckroe Beach ami
watched half a dozen men who were
fixing a largo balloon with hot air. It
was a good half hour before the great
pi!< of canvas spread on the ground be?
gan to tug ai the linos by whieh it was
held down. Then it had risen to a
height of HO feel, with a. circumference
of about 150. A pleasant breeze from
the sea skurried across the country to
iward the southwest. Now and then it
seemed to come in whirling eddies
whieh caught the monster gas bag and
sent it forth one way and then another
until it hud done obeisance to every
point of the compass.
it was five minutes past ? o'clock
when a dozen men who were holding
the balloon in captivity were told to
let go. Instantly it sh d up into tHe air
with a man attired as an acrobai ap?
parently clinging by his hands to a
crossbar, it was the aeronaut. Mr. .T.
II. Crew. A thousand feet above the
earth the balloon changed its shape un- j
til it looked like an immense boulder ]
rushing through spate. It. moved to?
ward the southwest, every moment ris?
ing higher and higher, until it stood at
the dizzy altitude of 2.000 feet, when
the aeronaut,'who looked like a mere
speck against the blue sky. and the
balloon separated. The folds of the
parachute spread out ami Mr. Crew be-'
gun to descend, still holding by his
hands to the crossbar. He came down
slowly, the parachute, instead of swing?
ling to ami fro. as is nearly always the
ease, descending as steadily, as if it
.were being lowered by some unseen
hand. The aeronaut alighted near the
Buy View Hotel, after having had a
sail through space whieh lasted ahmt
five minutes.
At 5 o'clock this afternoon the per?
formance will be repeated. Today,
however. Mr. Crew will he accompanied
by another man.
EXLTNE CONFESSES.
Wants to Pay a Pine and End Ills
Trouble.
Charles Exllne. of Hatter K. Sixth
artillery, stationed ai Port Monroe
who. as has already been stated, was
locked mi here Thursday'charged with
stealing a bicycle in Newport News and
selling it in this city, yesterday wrote
a note to Mayor Hope eonfessing his
guilt and asking to be permitted to pay
a fine and end his trouble.
The mayor took no action in the case
yesterday, however, beyond sending
Sergeant Giddlngs to Old Point witli
isummcns for several witnesses whose
names were furnished his honor on the
day of Exline's arrest. They were noti?
fied to appear this morning. It is said
that their testimony will probably tend
to lighten the batleryman's puni.-h
ment. Exliue, as staled yesterday,
claims to be a nephew of the" secretary
of war. General Algor. He is a bright
and intelligent young fellow and has
by no means the appearance of a had
man.

reason why the sick should mn In- al?
lowed to come ashore.
The Obdarn is in charge of Major
Bradley and Surs.i Brewer and is
free from any dangerous disease. A
man died of pneumonia shortly before
she reached the eapes. Among those on

Stales volunteer service: Captain Al?
gol-, sou of the secretary of war. who is
slightly wounded, the result of an ac?
cident, and Lieutenant Keim.

THE BEAUTIFUL SPY,
WHO HAS BEEN ACTING AS SPAIN'S
SECRET AGENT HERE.
An American Woman Whose Husband
Was a Spaniard Bellevlne Hlui Killed
Through American Agency, Takes Her j
Revenge.
The most valuable spy Spain has in
the United Slates is a woman, a daugh?
ter of one of the best families. The
story is a stratige one, and sad, and for
romantic character will find few equals
during the present war.
Mile. Josephine de Chappelle was the
daughter of a Canadian segneur who ]
had little time or desire for society.
Mis mother-little daughter was in?
trusted to the care of Madame Lamar
eaux who introduced her in Montreal
circles. Josephine was given a thor?
ough education at the Convent of the
Sacred Heart and later Yassar Col?
lege. Her great friend was the wife of
Lieutenant tie Poltras of the French j
navy, and Josephine spent a never-to
be-forgotten winter as her guest in
Paris."
One of Lieutenant de Poltras" great- ]
est chums was Lieutenant Concas of I
the Spanish Royal Navy. His atten
tion was attracted to one of Mile de
Chappelle's photographs and he be?
came much interested In the beautiful
girl. Mine de Poltras fanned the spark
into a llatne and though Lieutenant
Concas hud never seen the original he
was soon desperately in love with t lie
picture. When the caravels sent by
Spain to the Columbian exposition ar?
rived in the port of Montreal an in?
troduction between the Spanish offi?
cer and tho Canadian belle was a mat?
ter of course and before the caravels
left Canada they were engaged.
Two years ago Concas returned to
Canada on his way to Washington, and
at the same time Josephine visited an
old friend at the capital. While In
Washington they were quietly married.
The marriage was kept secret that the
future diplomatic career of the young
husband should not be jeopardized. His
position had been obtained through
the inlluenec of a man who hoped to
wed him to his own daughter and
Concas did not dare to tell the truth.
The bridegroom was sent on a se?
cret mission to Cuba ami the bride re?
turned to Canada. Communication be?
tween them was uncertain, for his
work carried him to distant parts of
the island. At last, after months of
silence. Josephine heard through her
friend Mine, tie Poltras that the name
of Lieutenant Concas had been pub?
lished among those killed by the in?
surgents in an explosion at Santiago
de Cuba. She. enclosed a copy of the
official report, which stated that the
explosives were supplied from the
United States and that the laying of
the mines had been done under the
superintendence of Amerlcau engin?
eers.
Josephine's hatred for the Americans
became very hitter. Her sympathies
were naturally with Spain, and she
was ready lo believe the Spanish re?
port. She called at the Spanish lega?
tion in Canada as soon as war was de?
clared, and suggested that she obtain
information for the use of the Span?
iards. Her long residence in Washing?
ton and her many friends in diplomatic
circles made her peculiarly tilted for
such work, and though her pride re?
volted at the thought, her hatred and
revenge made her eager to be of service
to the country of her husband. Though
it is not positively known, still it is
generally believed, that she did secret
work in both Washington and New
York. She has been regarded by the
representatives of the United States
government as a very dangerous ene?
my. She is a brilliant woman, speaks
English and French equally well, and
without the least suspicion of an ac?
cent, and had while laying her plan?
the great advantage of a close ac
qtiaintance with influential people in
some or i he largest cities of the United
States.
II is suspected that her special mis?
sion on her first trip was to operate
through her friendships with the
daughters of a cabinet minister, and of
an official of the slate department at
Washington, who were her school?
mates both at the Sacred Heart con?
vent and at. Vassar, to obtain some es?
sential information.
In June, when there were prospects
of Carranza and his associates being
expelled from the country. Josephine
suddenly returned to Montreal, living
iu a rented flat near the historic Span?
ish headquarters on Tupper street.
