The Stock Mar ket, opened active and in the main strong, the. industrials, however, for the most part furnishing pronounced exceptions to the genoral tendency. Very heavy selling was noted both in American Steel and Wire, Federal Steel, and others of the same class, under which some pronounced de clines occurred, the latter being, however, without much effect upon the railway list. The features of the latter quarter were Missouri Pacific, the Baltimore and Ohio shares, 'the Pacific ttocks, and the Penn sylvania Railroad. The tendency of the railway list was helped by the very decided strength that was shown in the London market, -where American stocks were shown at advances "oVonfe-quarter to three-quarters. London bouses were buyers of a fair amount of stocks here at the opening, and 'here seemed to be a general disposition to close out existing short contracts in view of the protracted suspension of business impend ing: The local traction issues were stroi.g, with the exception of Third Avenue in which instance a decline of several points resulted from the early dealings.

Reports of anjiugs are all good, that of the Bal timore nod Ohio, leccived yesterday aft- moon, being especially notable The bank ttfttetiKHit will be a fine one, as the banls have gained very large sums from the sub treasury and the interior. The profession als continue to preach pessimism, but im-JMM-Jsnt financial interests continue to buy f-ecurities. The arguments are in favor of a resumption of the upward movement of prices next week. The semi-official announcement that the Missouri Pacific is to be given a dividend wa6 perhaps the mos-t important news of the day. There has been talk of such a dividend for a long time, and it has been realized that the earnings of the company warranted a distribution to the stockhold ers, but Mr Sage has been opposed to a dividend policy until now. He was quoted this morning by an undoubted authority as favorinc a 4 or 5 per cent dividend imme diately nnd a C per cent rate next year. It is probable that the directorate of the company will take action regarding the matter early next mouth. The stock of the company was again very strong this morning, toon selling up nearly to 57. It scorns probable that the Steel and Iron securities will be among the features of next week's market. They have been sold by the bears for several days ami have reached much lower levels, but today a sharp qoverlng movement began which Is likely to be continued next week. Mr. Gates has delayed his return to New York and the shorts have taken advantage of this to sell, but now that it is known that he will reach the city tonight ..here will be little disposition to hold short cf n tracts over the holidays. The insiders have undoubtedly been buyers of the stocks for the past day or two, notwith standing all the talk of inside selling that has been heard. There is much talk of the Baltimore and Ohio securities and especially of the preforred. Developments are expected that will be of especial benefit to this stock. The earnings of the Norfolk and Western for the first week of April increased ?24,i)24 and from July 1 they have in creased ?1.77.935. The earnings of the Canadian Pacific for the week increased ?S7.000, and since January 1 increased ?76S,000. There i6 much estimating of the invest ment value of Third Avenue stock at pres ent under the guaranlec of the Metropol itan Railway. The stockholders of the company are to receive everything over operating expenses, taxes, and fixed chnrges for the first four years of the lease, after that for four years 5 per cent and two years C per cent.

It is also stated that the company has booked orders practically for a year in advance. Rock Island was strong today, and talk regarding the stock is most hopeful.

This amendment was proposed by John II. Corliss and provides that the Dis trict shall be divided into collection dis tricts and that garbage shall be disposed of by the reduction process. It is further stipulated in the amendment that no gar bage shall be exposed on land and none dumped in the Potomac River or any of its branches. The Commissioners state that they have given the subject careful consideration and j are of the opinion that the prebent pro- i isions in the District bill relative to the disposal of garbage and waste are the best form in which to leave the matter at presenL There is a very strict law in force now. thev sav. under which nrose- I cutions have been made and persons pun- ished for dumping garbage in the river. and the Commissioners think that no ad ditional legislation on that subject is necessary. The Commissioners also regard It as a mistake to limit the disposal of "gartiage to the reduction process. TTfere is much difference of opinion, they assert, regard ing this process, and it seems to them prtferablo to leave the matter open as it is at present, so that all Kinds of pro posals may be received, from which a wise selection may be made by the Commis sioners and by Congress. The provisions of the District bill on the subject leave the matter flexible, which they think is I in every way to be desired in the tentative I form in which many processor of gnrbage disposal still are. Tho Commissioners do not think that the District funds should be spent in doubtful experiments on re duction of garbage by furnaces or by other means. The division of the territory of the Dis- , trict into collection districts the Commis sioners regard as a practicnl impossibil- I ity, as the growth of the city during the period covered by the contract would ren der it necessary either to collect from dis tricts not requiring such service or to leave without collection a year or two hence places for which such service would be really necessary. j Finally th"e Commissioners express the hope that the legislation of Congress will stand chlelly as that proposed in the Gallinger bill, now before the Senate. won" by corcohaus. nii.iti-iiM lrrcittiil u AVeiilf Tenm mid l.ihi nn Hxhihitlon Came.

The Commissioners have sent to the Senate Committee on the District of Columbia the draft of a bill "to regulate permits for private conduits in the Dis trict of Columbia," recommending its en actment in place of Senate bill 121 having the same title. This bill, the Commissioners show in their letter to the chairman of the com mittee, restricts the laying of conduits mentioned therein to the alleys within the limits of squares or blocks, the Commis sioners not approving of the laying of private conduits in the streets or avenues or other public highways. Attention is also called to the fact that the enactment of this bill will remove the necessity for ( the passage of the act entitled "Author- I izing the Dewey Hotel Company to con- struct and maintain an electric conduit in Stanton Alley," as authority would be invested in the Commissioners to issue this and smilar permits in future.

The Most Popular Jockey In Amqrlco nml KiiKliimi Itcconiiueiulx Stu- rt'M DyaiiciiHin Tablet. No Jockey has ever appealed so strongly to public favor as Tod Sloan. He has achieved more than his most noted predecessors- ever attempted and stands in a class by himself. Not satisfied with his successes in his native country, he went to England and now his fame as a successful horseman is on the tip of every tongue not only in this country and England, but in every section 1 of the globe where racing has found favor. ' AVhen Tod first went to England his te merity was openly laughed at, but the little American played skittles with his English rivals and his victories made all England gasp. Having the stamp of royal approval, so ciety both at home.and-iabroad "lionized" him and he is feted band petted to an extent that would turn an ordinary mortal's head. The great jockey, was; in such demand socially and dined "and" wined to such an extent tnat it was feared his health would p'f wnv Tnn tmitVi tMntv and the .ner- 1 vou6 strain of racitg told on him.

One or two taken after meals keep the stomach sweet by causing prompt and healthy di gestion of the food. Perfectly healthy people use them after heavy dinners to keep their good health and to make sure that no ill effects will follow an unusually hearty meal.

Tin- Ht-iiMMi I.it-iit'ii:iii t Colom-I llzijos Itrsltcii-il Krom the Ami). LOl'ISVILLE, April 12. Despatches from Washington state that Lieut. Col. Webb C. Hayes, of the Thirty-third Volunteers, has been given an honorable discharge at his own request, the reasons therefor not being stated. This action tends to confirm a letter received in this city last Sunday from an enlisted man in the Philippines. The letter is dated Zaui bauga. province of Mindanao. It says in part "On February 17 Colonel Pettlt, in com mand of this regiment, took twenty-one privates, qne sergeant, and three corpo rals from Company C and. accompanied by Assistant Adjutant General Pershing and the captain of Company C. all heavily armed, embarked on a small steamer Their object was to capture one of Agui nnldo's officers on a small adjacent Island, Isabella, only a few hours' trip from here. When they reached the town where this officer was stopping the Morro Dado, or chief, came out to meet the boat and In formed Colonel Pettlt that he could not land his men under arms, but that if he would leave all of the arms on board ship he and his men could come in and view the town. This was done. ' "The town was found to contain proba- hly 400 men and women, all told. The wo- .. . ... , men, as well as men. were armed with huge bolos Jnd rifles After .ntering the town jn theh iblrt sleeves the enlisted men had to submit to having the Morros deliberate- ly put their hands into their pockets and take their tobacco. When the time for de parture arrived the chief submitted a proposition to Colonel Pettlt to surrender the man they were after for J20 in- gold Colonel Pettit accepted the proposition leaving his prisoner in charge of the marines en route here. "On his arrival here Colonel Pettit had . ,.t. , , . . r , , tt a talk with Lieutenant Colonel Hayes, a ... . , fine man with a good record, and Colonel Hayes told him he was ashamed of his conduct and blushed for the entire Thirty first Regiment and would Immediately have himself transferred from such a dis graceful outfit or resign. Colonel Hayes left hero yesterday for Manila on an un limited leave of absence, carrying his en tire belongings. Pettit has supreme com mand of this island. I send you this through the kindness of an old First Ken tucky friend." Tho writer explained his manner of sending the letter by saying that he feared that if it was addressed to a news paper oflice it. would never leave the isl and. The writer, whose name is with held, Is thoroughly reliable. The AVar Department has been informed that Lieut. Col. Webb C. Hayes,- of the Thirty-first Volunteer Infantry, has been ordered by General Otis to proceed to San Francisco and report on his arrival there to the Adjutant General of the Army by telegraph for discharge from the Army at his own request. Lieutenant Colonel Hayes is a son of Rutherford B. Hayes. The rea sons for his resignation are not known here. He served in the Santiago cam paign as a staff officer. SHOT HIS FIANCEE. A Xew York Sale in mi Kill n AVonirin and SIiooIh Himself. NEW YORK. April 12. Frederick Shore, a salesman, shot and killed tois fiancee, Fanny Greenbaum, yesterday in the apartments of Isaac Goldstein, in the tene ment at 409 East Sixth Street, where she was employed as a servant. Then, after winding up a music box and listening io a tune, Shore shot himself in the head. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, and will probably die. Goldstein's young niece and nephew, Hannah and Jacob Samuel, who were visiting him, were -terrified witnesses of the shooting. The Greenbaum woman, who was twenty-nine years old, had been employed by the Goldstein family for the last six months. Shore frequently visited her and the Goldsteins say that on account of his agreeable manners they made him welcome. Today Shore began to upbraid tho girl for having gone to the theatre the night before with another man. After a few minutes' wrangling, he drew a re volver from his pocket and shot her. She was dead when the police arrived. Fatally Afisaulteil IIin Father. SCRANTON, Pa., April 12. James Nolan and his father John, of Gordon Street, "Carbondale, engaged in a brawl last night.
