Brokers Have Hard Work In In? teresting Speculators. MARKET IS EXCEEDINGLY QUIET Railroads and Mercantile Industries All Report Prosperity But the Reapers In Wall Street Have Poor Pickings These Days. ?f (By Associated PrcBB.) NEW YORK, July 9.?Pressure be? ing oft the Block market today there was slight railing tendency. This failed to attract tiny demand for stocks or to revive any attempt to get prices higher. The most notable consequence of this state of affaire was the shrinkage in the volume of the speculation the day's aggregate transaction falling to a smaller figure than for many weeks past. I Immediate developments played but a small part in the action or the market, lint the general outlook on the future was kept in consideration, especially on the side of the money market. The Saturday bank state? ment with the surplus showing re? duced to $6,465.075 had its continu? ing effeet In chilling speculative en? thusiasm. Railroad earnings und traffic, re? ports, mercantile advices, trade and Industrial activity and other Indica? tions of lindrmlnlshed general pros? perity gave rise to repetition of a well known Wall Street argument ad? vanced in times of tight, money for? mulated in the term "too much pros? perity.'' The constant fluctuations of the day in tlie stock market reflected the shifting operations of room traders. The ( losing was firm at recovery but. not far from last week's level, Re? iterated reports of the floating of St. Paul loan .in Paris, which had some semblance of authority helped to the late recovery; Baltimore Produce Market.

The question as to which nation is the best dressed is raised by an artic? le In La Revue entitled "Moi cantill Ismo et Esthctlquo," by M. Albert Sell hit z, who awards the palm to ?Americans over English people or t.ose of any other country. "Americans, as n rule, dress far bet? ter and more Smartly than Euro? peans," he says. "Side by side with tile latter they Invariably have I he appearance of being turned out spick and span. An American who had landed at Hornburg on his first Euro? pean t'Mir told us how surprised he had been to notice that 'only poor people live in Europe.'" ' Mr. Frederick Bosworth, the New I HtirllnKton street court costumier and tailor, informed a Dally Mall represen? tative yesterday that, comparing the American business men nnd women, who go every morning to the city and t return every evening, with our Lon-I don crowds, the former are decidedly I neater in nppcarance. I "The American woman too, shows ? more daintiness, and what I might , call sense of fitness in choice of ma? terial, making up. nnd way of display ling it to the very best ndvantng<\ I Englishwomen, even of lim most cul? tural classes, do not show that Invaria? ble excellent, taste in dress which at ? most every American woman shows. American indies often pay as much for a cotton dress with dainty Alsatian lace edgings and trlmmlncs as is giv? en for n court costume of as much as $200 nnd $250. A member of the firm of Messrs. Skinner At Grant, the well-known Re? gent street tailors, -who had spent some years in the United Stntes, said that there was no question that Amer? ican people men as well as women, were well dressed, but "not so well dressed ?s the members of our Ens ! lisb upper classes, that is, society pee ' pie." Another famous West End tailor put the mntter thus: "No English? man orders his clothes from America: few Americans who can afford it anil who prize style, quality, and fit, order their clothes anywhere else but !n I London. The extent of this trans-At I lantic. trade has already been pointed out, and I am within the mark in sav? ing that the very existence of some "if our most famous firms In West Lon? don lienends upon this American cus? tom. The cultured American is prob? ably as well-dressed In nil respects PS any man In Europe, but in snylng thlit wo arc only paying ourselves n com? pliment, for almost without exception the clothes come from London."

THEY Will 60 FIRST TO MAINE Man Who Married Mrs. Shaw, Falls to Answer When Asked If He Is to Remain In Thin Country to Manage Father's Estate. NEW YORK. July 9.?Willdorf Astor and Ids American bride, who was Mrs. Nannie Lnnghorhe Shaw, wero imeson gors on the Willie Star stonnwhlp Cel? tic, which reached her pier yesterday after lying nil night at anchor off Quarantine. Others on board were Mr. and Mrs. .1. IMorpont Morgan. Jr., Rev. D. Parker Morgan, D. D.. rector of tlie Church of the Heavenly Rest, and Mrs. Morgan. Considerable Interest centered in the Astors all the way over, and Mrs. As? tor. known as the beautiful Mrs. Shaw j before her recent marriage, was much [admired. Mr. and Mrs. Astor and Mr. |and Mrs. J. P. Morgan. Jr.. occupied seals at the same tnble. The party kept pretty much to themselves all tlie wny over. After young Astor had snlled from I the other side, which was on Juno 30, It was announced that his father, Wil? liam Waldorf Astor. of Cllvenden, had been taken 111 and removed to Cllven? den from London. Young Astor said today that his father could not be very 111 else he would have heard of II by wireless. "Really," he continued, "he did have a slight attack of the gout, but that is all." Young Astor was asked if it were true that In the future he would spend the greater part of his time in this country looking after his father's es ; tntes hero. ? ?*">J * "Do you tiling that my personal af? fairs are really so Important to tlie public ns nil that?" asked the young man. "f don't see how they can be; I am only a plain citizen." "Are yon an American citizen or n British citizen?" Young Astor smiled and said: I am residing In England. "We are over here for the summer," he continued, "nnd will spend our time in Maine and lu Virginia. First, we will go lo Maine, nnd then visit Mrs. Astor's father. I do not know that wo will go to Newport. We have no intention of doing so nt present." QUESTION OF JUDISDICTION. Power of Civil Courts Over Persons Arrested on Military Reservations. WASHINOTON, D. C, July !>.? The War Department has now on hand another Interesting case Involving the jurisdiction of civil courts over per? sons committing offences on a military reservation. A soldier of the Porto Klean pro vis-] inrial regiment, stationed at Sau Juan a sentry, shot, and killed a trespasser on the military reservation. The In? sular court undertook to Investigate the cast!, but the commanding officer of the post denied Its right to serve a process on the reservation, claiming that it was exclusively under the juris? diction or (he United States District Court. Meanwhile the soldier win Irled nnd acquitted by court-martial. Subsequent correspondence between the War and Navy departments re? vealed the fact that the United States and insular courts of the island took different views as to tlie right to try persons for crimes committed on Unit? ed States military reservations. In order to settle this Important question, (he commanding officer of tlie post in San Juan has now been Instructed to permit the aery ice of process to the point of placing the ac? cused soldier under arrest, and tlie Department of Justice has been re? quested to direct tlie United States District Attorney for Porto Rico to sue out a writ of haheas corpus'directed against the district court, thus bring? ing tlie matter before the United States court. An appeal from Its find? ings can then bo taken by either party to the United States Supremo Court. GET HIPPODROME LEASE. Will Be Managed by the Shuberts and M. C. Anderson. l?ee and J. J.

The fish cannot llvo In unity, and If two are placed In n bowl they will Instnutly engage In a struggle "to the rtenth." It Is no uiiusnnl thing to see In the streets of Slnm crowds of natives chut tcrlug and gesticulating around a bowl containing a number of these fish, which they bet on In the snipe wny ns more civilized people do on race horses. Intense excitement relgus nniong the natlves'an they watch tho fish fighting within the bowl. These peculiarly quarrelsome fish are very similar to the common pike In np penrance, with the exception thnl they nre not In the possession of gills. Their fins, too. are remarkably sharp, and these they use with terrible effect upon one another. Blood 007.es from their sides, and yet they persist In fighting until perhaps only two aro left nllve, nnd then the survivors turn on one an? other until only one In left out of per? haps a dozen placed In the tub.
