The Shrinkage in Business
The Bears Renew Their Old
The Market Weak and Many Losses
During the Day.
Two More Brokerage Firms Snccnmb to
the Pressure—Baring Bros. Will
Not Cease to Exist.
Associated Press Dispatches.
New York, Nov. 18. —The shrinkage
in the volume of business which was so
marked yesterday made further progress
today, and returning dullness indicating
that no material demand for stocks was
existing, induced more selling by bears,
and the tone of the market was weaker
than it had been since Saturday, result
ing in many marked losses for the day,
among which are Pacific Mail, 3 l ._. per
cent.; Union Pacific, 2\ ; Atchison, \% ;
St. Paul, 1% ; Burlington, 1%.
There was a renewal of the old bear
tactics of spreading reports reflecting
upon the financial standing of prominent
tirms in the street, etc. The monetary
situation was one of tbe most influential
factors, however, in restricting buying.
Two failures were announced, and while
neither had much influence to lower
{trices, they acted as further deterring
from buying.
The Two Failures.
At 10:45 a. m. the announcement was
made of the failure of P. N. Gallaudet
& Co., stock brokers; liabilities, $100,
--000. They assigned to C. E. Minor.
The failure was owing to several banks
calling loans.
The assignee said the suspension was
due to a general depression in the val
ues of collaterals, which had gone so
far when loans to the firm were called,
that they could not be met, although the
firm have what, in ordinary time,
would be amply sufficient to pay bor
rowed money. The firm holds such good
securities that if the market improves
they will be able to pay their indebted
ness, and have a surplus left.
Mr. Fitch of the suspended firm said:
"Of course we hope to resume busi
ness shortly. Our being able to do so,
however, depends largely upon tlie
banks and trust companies. If they are
lenient with us, we may come out all
right. If they press us, "the termination
of our suspension is not so clearly fore
At 2:45 p. m. W. F. Owens announced
his suspension on the stock exchange.
He has no outstanding contracts on the
The Forenoon Market.
Stocks during the forenoon were still
irregular and unsettled, both here and
in London. As yesterday, there was a
great deal of arbitrage in business,
owing to the great differences in prices
•in the same stocks in the two markets.
The scarcity of money in this market,
owing to the timidity of lenders, was
the most important factor in the market.
The opening was quiet and irregular
without excitement, with prices well
sustained. The general list advanced
small fractions over opening, with Vil
lards in the lead.
North American, Northern Pacific
preferred and St. Paul were the only
conspicuously active stocks, and trading
in Northern Pacific preferred was re
markable for the transfer of some large
At 11 the market was fairly active and
steady, at about opening prices.
In the Afternoon.
After 12 liquidation assumed larger
proportions with a marked increase in
business. Material losses were sus
tained in all the leading stocks. The
feature of the dealings was Pacific
Mail, which had been extremely
dull during the forenoon, but now
became suddenly very active. It
was knocked down to 28}k, against 33!.j
last night; recovered 2. The rest of the
list also suffered severely in a short
drive. Union Pacific lost l} 2 ; Western
Union, ; Atchison, 1. No recovery
of note.
At 2:15 the market was quiet but
weak at the lowest prices of the day.
Money was tight at 3 to 30 per cent.
The last loan was at 3.
Bar silver dropped down to 98.
Stocks in the last hour showed no ani
mation. After further slight losses,
some recovery was shown, but the mar
ket closed quiet, heavy to weak, at or
near the lowest prices of the day.
The North River Bank.
Judge O'Brien issued an order today
requiring that cause be shown forthwith
why a receiver should not be appointed,
pending the suit which the attorney
general has brought to dissolve the
North River bank. A temporary in
junction was also secured restraining the
officials from interfering with its affairs.
The case was argued during the day. At
the conclusion of the argument the judge
reserved decision.
(Baring Brothers Will Not Dissolve.
Thomas Baring, a member of the firm
of Kidder, Peabody & Co., American
agents of Baring Brothers, said this
morning: "I wish to deny in most em
phatic terms the statements that Baring
Brothers will go into liquidation and
cease to exist within a few years. There
is absolutely no other foundation for the
statements than the Dossible retirement
of Lord Revelstoke from the head of the
house. To accomplish this there may
possibly be a nominal liquidation, but
the business of the bank would continue
as before, in the hands of the reconsti
tuted firm. It is not even certain that
Lord Revelstoke will retire, though as
he is sixty years old, it ia not improba
ble. If the matter has been definitely
settled, I, being his brother, ought to
have heard of it."
Clearing House Certificates.
Frederick D. Tappan, chairman of the
clearing house, says a considerable
amount of certificates were takeii out to
day by banks, not with the intention of
using them immediately, but for the
purpose of easing the money market if
necessary. Clearings went through all
right this morning. The transactions
were very large, aggregating $218,000,000.
Stocks In Foreign Marts.
London, Nov. 18.—12:30 p. m.—Stocks
opened better, but business dwindled
and grew stagnant. Stocks closed bet
ter for foreign securities; others dull.
Pabib, Nov. 18. — A dispatch from
Baenoe Ay res states that the bourse
yesterday was agitated. National bank
shares fell heavily to 19.
Montevideo, Nov. 18.—The premium
on gold at the close of the bourse today
was 48.
High Officials of Sacramento Make An
Unpleasant Discovery.
Sacramento, Nov. 18. —Yesterday af
ternoon Mayor Comstoek and Trustee
Walfmere were out on a tour of inspec
tion of the north levee, and when at a
point beyond the old Tivoli garden, their
attention was directed to a small, low
brush hut which bad been erected be
tween the railway track and a pile of
railroad ties. The officials approached
the hut and were only a short distance
from the rude habitation, when
a Chinaman thrust his head into view.
It was apparent at a glance that
the Mongolian was suffering from lep
rosy, and the mayor and trustee aban
doned the idea of studying the archi
tecture of the hut. It is stated that the
diseased Chinamen has been located in
his present quarters during the day, and
would sueak to the city at night for the
purpose of securing sufficient food on
which to subsist. The attention of the
health officer has been called to the
presence of the leper.
A Bad Smash-I p.
Lock Haven, Pa., Nov. 18. —Last
night a work train, descending on the
Ferney mountain gravity road, broke
from control and collided with a loco
motive near the mountain's foot, caus
ing a bad smash up. John Davis and
Henry Dringer were killed; five others
were wounded. AH are wood-choppers.
Buffalo Bill Comes Home.
New York, Nov. 18.—Col. Wm. F.
Cody, of the Wild West Indian show,
returned yesterday on La Normandie.
The vessel-is still at quarantine. It is
said cases of smallpox are among the
430 emigrants on the steamer.
Threats of Lynching Chief Hennessy's
Murderers — The Prisoners Brutally
Beaten—The Italians Aroused.
New Obleans, Nov. 18. —Popular in
dignation at the weakness of the prose
cution of Chief Hennessy's murderers
increases, and threats of lynching the
Italians in jail are openly made. On the
other hand, the Italian population is
much aroused over the report that the
prisoners have been cruelly beaten. The
Italian consul, Signor Carte, has cabled
the matter in full to the Italian govern
ment, and the GazettaCoratalica, edited
by Rev. Father Maneretta, calls for an
Italian man-of-war to protect Italians at
New Orleans.
The New Cruiser Maine Receives Her
New Yoek, Nov. 18. —Flags and bunt
ing made the navy-yard very bright to
day. All the cruisers were in full dress,
and the old-fashioned place had a holi
day appearance. The occasion was the
launching of the great armored cruiser
Maine. Just after 10 o'clock, Secretary
of the Navy Tracy arrived, with a party,
and was received by all the officers of
the yard. As he entered the main gate,
a salute of nineteen guns was fired from
the Vermont. The launching began
promptly at noon. Amid the cheers of
thousands of spectators and the music
of the Star Spangled Banner, the big
cruiser started down the incline. As she
did so, Miss Wilmerding, niece of Secre
tary Tracy, broke a bottle of champagne
over the bow and christened the vessel.
As the Maine reached the water, and the
flag was hoisted, the Vermont's battery
thundered out a national salute.
Train Robbers Fall to Hold Up a Texas
Pacific Train.
Er. Paso, Tex., Nov. 18. —An east
bound Texas and Pacific train was held
up last night by four men at Kent. One
ot the robbers named Smith, warned the
station agent at Kent, and guards were
placed on the train. The intention was
to kill the trainmen, if necessary, to ac
complish their purpose. When the rob
bers appeared the guards opened lire on
them. Forty shots were exchanged be
fore the robbers fled. One guard and
it is believed two robbers were wounded.

Annual Report.
A Great Increase In Revenues
Over Last Year.
Also a Large Increase In Expendi
tures On Account of Pensions.
Important Changes in the Circulating
Medium—A Net Increase of $32,
--000,000 in Circulation.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Nov. 18. —The annual
report of United States Treasurer Hus
ton shows that the net ordinary revenues
of the past fiscal year amounted to $40,
--380,982, a sum but twice exceeded in the
history of the government; an increase
over tlie year before of $10,030,923; of
which $11,725,191 came from the inter
nal revenue. The ordinary expendi
tures were $297,730,430, an increase of
$15,739,871 over the year before. The
increase is due to the increase in pen
The surplus revenues were $105,344,
--496, of which $20,304,224 was paid out in
premiums in bonds purchased.
The receipts of the postofflce depart
ment were $61,106,101, and the expendi
tures $76,011,263, an increase of between
five and six millions on both sides.
The aggregate amount for which the
treasurer was accountable during the
fiscal year was $1,321,774,482. Of this
he disbursed $030,247,078 on warrants.
Deducting the amounts on deposit with
states and various other sums, the
amount remaining for which he was ac
countable, was $757,915,078.
The amount of gold in the treasury in
creased during the year from $303,387,
--719 to $320,033,145; and silver
from $315,160,779 to $346,821,000.
Exclusive of the amounts on deposit
there was in the treasury belonging to
the government on June*3o, 1889, $326.
--028,927, and June 30, 1890, $286,384,815,
the amount of gold having increased
about four millions, while silver de
creased nearly nine millions.
The liabilities decreased during the
year from $127,931,880 to $107.124,715,
and the reserve, being in excess of assets
over liabilities, ran down from $198,097,
--047 to $170,260,097.
The total obligations of the treasury
•n all accounts were $1,810,678,475, on
June 30,1889, aud $1,722,240,163 on June
30, 1890. Not counting certificates of
deposit, the debt proper, in the shape of
bonds and circulating notes, was re
duced from $1,250,043,136, to $1,145,
--■100,986. This was effected at a total
cost of $124,952,243 for principal and
premiums. Nearly $74,000,000 of four
per cent, bonds and upwards of $30,000,
--000 of four and one-half per c-int. were
Important changes took place in the
circulating medium, but of a more fa
vorable character than the year before.
There was a gain of $15,000,000 in the
stock of gold; an increase of $43,000,000
in silver ; a contraction of $26,000,000 in
the volume of bank notes, resulting
in a net increase of $32,000,000 in
the aggregate supply of money. In round
numbers the circulation on June 30,
1890, consisted of $505,000,000 of gold,
and $414,000,000 of silver and silver cer
A change has taken place in the
movement of United States notes.
There was a decline of activity in the
issue nnd redemption of g 11 certificates.
The absorption of legal tender silver
into the circulation, in the form of cer
tificates of deposit, has been fully up to
the means of the treasury for supplying
it. There was also an outflow of be
tween two and three millions fractional
silver dollar coins, which encourages the
hope that with good management the
treasury, in the course of a few years
more, may be relieved of its redundant
stock of these coins for some time on
Seventy-three banks were discontin
ued as depositories during the year.
Deposits for the retirement of national
bank notes amounted to only $11,000,000.
Continued embarrassment has at
tended the work of supplying the coun
try with paper currency from delays and
failure in filling the treasurer's requisi
tion for new notes. He suggests that
greater flexibility might be given to the
currency, if gold certificates of denom
inations of live and ten dollars be issued.
He urges the necessity of an appropria
tion for the transportation of United
States paper currency to Washington
for redemption. With a trifling addi
tional outlay, the country could be kept
supplied with clean and fresh paper cur
rency, thus greatly lessening the danger
of counterfeiting.
The treasurer claims that the salaries
paid to the officers of the treasury are
inadequate compensation for the duties
performed, being less than paid in well
managed private institutions, and less
than paid in the sub-treasury at New
Gould and the Richmond Terminal.
New York, Nov. 18.—President John
Inman, of the Richmond terminal sys
tem, says Jay Gould has not secured
control of that property. He has 100,000
shares out of 700,000, and he is entitled
to three or four representatives on the
board of directors, out of eighteen. In
man says he will welcome Gould's inter
est in the property.

Secretary Sewartl's Opinion.
I heard a story of William H. Seward
the other day which I think is a new one.
I am not certain, but I am impressed
with a conviction that it comes from
Miss Olive Risley Seward, an adopted
daughter of the late Secretary Seward,
whose Bohemian literary salon is one of
the most charming places to which one
can have the entree at the national cap
ital. It was at the time when there was
great agitation of the removal of the cap
ital, aud all Washington was alarmed.
One of the scared ones said to Secretary
Seward, "Mr. Seward, do you think tlie
capital will be removed from Washing
ton?" "Yes, I think it will," was the re
ply. "But where—to Chicago?" "No."
"What? Not to St. Louis? Well,
where then?" "To the City of Mexico.
That will probably be the center of pop
ulation of the United States one of these

Middlesborough, England, is well
known as the great center of the iron
trade — a city of 60, CMX) inhabitants, with
180 blast furnaces, and an annual out
put of nearly 2,000,000 tons of pig-iron.
But there has recently been founded an
English Middlesborough in America,
which bids fair, if its present rate of de
velopment continues, to represent in
time as much wealth in gold and iron as
the older city of which it is the name
sake. Two years ago it had no existence
save in the minds of its founders; today
it is a city of several thousand inhab
itants, aspiring to become the principal
seat of the iron and steel manufacture of
the United States.—Harper's.
Treatment of Files.
So called remedies for piles are with
out number. The complaint often lasts
for years without affecting the general
health, and on the other hand constant
irritation and bleeding may at onco
affect the entire system. Keep the bow
els regular, relying upon fruit and grain
diet. Avoid tobacco, condiments, liquor,
etc. For bleeding a wash or injection
of tannin is recommended—one ounce to
half a pint of water. Any good anti
septic ointment may be tried, to be ap
plied with a suppository syringe. In
flammation is remedied, by frequent
bathing in cold water, rest and plain
food.—Herald of Health.

I treated with two doctors for six months; one said that I had heart disease, the other didn't
know what to call my disease; either of them failed to benefit me.
Dr. Wong's diagnosis was that my liver, kidneys, stomach and blood wore diseased. I took
medicine of Dr. Wong which effected o permanent cure In a few months' time, and I have been
in excellent h< alth and have worked hard ever since, now five years.

For nearly one year I was treated by the most noted physicians of New York City, to whom I
paid $25 per day lor medical advice. They failed to prevent me from running down, finally these
physicians told my friends that my case was incurable, and that I could not possibly live one
year, as I was in the last stages of consumption. Dr Wong cured me in four months' time, and I
am as well as any man in the world, and nave worked hard for over two years' time.

untold agonies. Then I took medicine of Dr. Wong, and he got me to ray usual weight and
strength in two months, though my friends considered I was likely to die any day for the first

produced by the operatio-i or butchery I was subjected to. Experience and observation leads me
to believe that Dr. Wong lias nc equal as a physician in America.
