NHW YORK, July 23.?Governor's Island
and the ferry entrance at the battery
recall the day when the troops
were 'preparing to depart for the south
at the outbreak of the Spanish-American
war. Three companies'of the Fifteenth
United7 States Infantry?I, K
and L?ure under orders t&.leave Governor's
Island to-morrow j.for San
Francisco, and the soldiers believe they
will see active service In China before
they return to this part of the world.

itfaiiy Tearful Farewell? Taken.
Many tearful farewells \yere taken by
the. visitors, but-the 'sbldlorsi themablves
joked and laughed, and neteel'generally
as-lfthe prospects of fighting In a foreign
lund were; pleasing to them. The
three companies that will begin' the .1
long journey to-morrow will be under
the command of Major. C. "\V. Cornish!.
Preparations' for departure." have all
been completed, baggage is packed, and
oillcors and men are ready for the
sound ?of the bugler's "fall In." At Og-,
den, Utah Company M, of the same
regiment, will join the contingent from
Governor's Island. This company for a
year has beon at Fort McPherson, Ga.
The companies 'Will go Into camp at
*Vin T>rnalrlIr\ in Qnn
tory to shipping for the Philippines or
China, as may be determined by the
war department..'. \
Small Garrison Left General Brooke.
The departure of the companies of
the Fifteenth regiment will leave General
Brooks with but a small garrison
at Governor's 'islands until the arrival
of troops now in Cuba. The Island,
which Is the official headquarters of the
department of the east, will, for the
present^ be'garrlsoned by companies of
the Fifth artillery, now stationed
around the harbor.
Army officials in this city, particularly
those-attached to the quartermaster's
department, are 'very busy In
looking after the troops ordered home
from Cuba to their old stations. The
belief is genera! that these commands
will not long be permitted to enjoy the
comforts of their home stations, but
after a brief rest will be recruited and
sent to the east via Siin Francisco.
Company E, of the battalion of engineer,
two officers and one hundred and
llfty men stationed at "West Point, is
under orders to proceed to the Pacific
coast. This detachment will getaway
to-morrow.
More Troops Expected From Cuba.
More troops are expected here this
week from Cuba. The transport RawUrsis
now on the way with part of the
Fifth Infantry which'will go to Fort
Sheridan, and Chicago. ?
Two battalions of the Second Infan
j, uiiitcio UJIU 1'ifini
hundred and llfty men arc on ttic trans
port Sedgwick, which Is expected here
to-morrow. These troops will be sent
west at once to recuperate, and recruit.
Orders have been Issued by the
Washington authorities to withdraw
the Fjfst Infantry now stationed at
Guanajay, and Pjnar del Rio, in Cuba,
and early next month part of the
Eleventh infantry will leave Cuba. A
squadron of the Fifth cavalry has also
been ordered from Cuba to Fort Myer,
"Washington. These are all seasoned
troops, and It Is expected that they will
be able to give a good account of themselves
IT It becomes necessary for them
to go to China. '
Will be Landed on Chinese Soil.
Army officers stationed around New
York are Inclined' to the belief that
most of the troops now under orders to
go to San Francisco will be landed on
Chinese'soil.
Army officers flay that the Chinese
trouble and the prospects of United
States troops'seeing service in that
country have given a great Impetus to
lecruiting in this city. Nearly all the
regiments in the service are below their
quotas und the officers, in charge of the
recruiting stations, have received orders
to redouble their efforts to secure
men for the regiments now In the
Held. Most of- the applicants, many of
them veterans of the Spanish war,
want tQ be assigned to regiments under
orders or likely to receive orders to
go to Asia. No difficulty is anticipated
by'those in army circles In securing all
the men necessary.
How Idoocly Toole a Whipping.
From "The Life of Dwlght L. Moody,"
by W. R. Moody: Mother would,send
me out for a stick, ana I thought I
could fool her and got a dead one. Rut
she would ?nap the stick and then tell
me to get another. She.wan rarely In
a hurry, and certainly never when she
was whipping me. Once 1 told her that
the whipping did not hurt at all. I never
had occasion to Ml her so again, for
she put It on ho It did hurt.
Unprofessional at Present.
New York Press: No ptig would be I
happy In Congress anyway, till the
rules of order are cooked over so he I
could knock out the previous question, j

The Influential Interests which have
| taken ths leadership In the stock rnar|
ket --continued th:ir efforts to-day-to
make a rising market with thd object
j of inducing public buying.,There .were
not discouraged by failure of outside
interest to develop on account of last
week's advance, and they resumed their
.bullish manipulation from the opening
this morning. There was not much difficulty
apparent in advancing prices or
if any obstruction appeared in the
shape of offerings in larger volume than
could be absorbed, the leaders deftly
turned their attention to stocks whose
upward course was easier. As the long
Interest has not yet attained large proportions.
and as there still remains a
considerable short interest whose position
grows dally more precarious, the
technical conditions favored the advance.
There was some accession of
outside buying as well, which It Is the
ultimate object of the present buying
to attract as a reliance for absorbing
stocks at a higher level. The appearance
of this buying encouraged the professional
bulls to redoubled efforts and
the day's market as a result gave an
appearance of greater activity and
more strength than on any day last
.week. This was particularly true after
Sugar had boon checked in its first rt?
actionary tendency unci was found lo
move upwards easily on moderate buying.
This stock continued to have a
marked influence on the whole,market
and its reaction late In the day precipitated
a movement to take profits elsewhere,-so'that
the closing was'easy at
considerable recessions from the best.
The distinguishing feature of the market
was its unevenness as migfit be ex,
pected fronvlts professional and manipulated
character. A few stocks were
^active* and strong, a larger number
showed sharp advances after lying dov"mant
for some time, so that very meagre
transactions were sufficient to move
them. But the majority, of the list wa3only
moderately active and continued
very sluggish, small net gains being the
rule In'sympathy with the strength in
special stocks. There was a disposition
to pick some leading stock from
each strong group c-f securities In which
the Interests or conditions-were allied
and advance these leaders for effect on
their particular groups, thus permeating
pretty much the whole market with
a show of strength. During the course
of the day other stocks in the several
groups responded more or less to thte
manoeuvre, thus boardenlng the effect
of the advances. Thus Tennessee coal
led the stocks with an extreme advanc?
of 4Vi per cent, but several of the group
responded to the extent of a point or
over. Metropolitan Street Railway 2%
per cent early in the day, but Brooklyn
Transit took the leadership of the group
with a rise of'3^ per cent on the favorable
illdielal dorlsinn in tpn nnnfr
fare cases. In the grangers, St. Paul
and Burlington rose about 2 points
each. Early advances in Leather, People's
Gas and Southern Pacific proved
abortive,and these stocks were relegated
to the background. Such recent favorites
as the Baltimore & Ohio and Union
Pacific were notably neglected and were
inclined to be heavy. The hopelessness
cf the bulls was predicted on the more
encouraging feeling regarding China
which was reflected from abroad,or* the
confidence that the money market Is
assured of a considerable period of ease
and that'a period-of quiet in political
affairs Is likely to intervene before the
campaign tjikes on . its more active
phases. The absence of any engagements
of gold for export to-day also
helped" the market as did the favorable
crop news. The bond market continued
dull and prices moved- irregulaxly.

Wheat was a very tame market today.
.Liverpool showed practically no
response to the advance here Saturday
and world's shipments large, showing
good Increases from Russia and the
Danublan country. It was the sort of
news which greeted the beginning
trade, September opening %?lc under
Saturday. There was some covering by
shorts for profits and September rallied
to 78H& The rally which graders were
playing for failed to materialize, because
of outside apathy and a reaction
followed. Heavy receipts and a slack
cash business during the rest of the
session held the market true to the
downward course and the wind-up was
lifeless and wealc. September dropped
to 76%c and closed l%c lower at 7G%@
7ti%c. Clearances at the seaboard in
wheat and flour were equal to 104,000
bushels. Primary receipts aggregated
1,185,000 bushels, compared with 993,000
bushejs last year.
Minneapolis and Duluth reported 3G9
cars, against 287 last week and 5G3 a
year ago. Receipts here were 203 cars,
sixty-seven of contract grades. The
domestic visible decreased 450,000 and
the English 1,221,000 bushels. Reports
from the Dakotas were that hot winds
had practically completed the destructive
work of the drouth. Not much attention
was paid to these reports, however.
Corn was quiet but steady, holding
firmly against the weakness in wheat
after it had made a small concession to
the attitude assumed by the more important
cereal. Business in the pit was
limited in volume and local in character.
-The supporting factors were light
receipts?311 cars here?small country
offerings, higher cables and a strong
cash demand. September sold between
39%c and 39*4c, closing %@%e up at
39?4<339%c.
Shipping bids were reported 3&c over
September, c. I. f. Buffalo, and 4Hc over
September for No. 2 white. Sales for
shipments were placed at 250,000 bush
eis, wniie isew l'orK reported thirtyeight
loads taken for export. The speculative
trade in oats was small and
largely confined to the operations of local
scalpers. The depressing influence
was to a degree counteracted by the
steadiness of corn. Receipts were 109
cars. September sold between 23V4?
23%c and 23%(0,23%c, and closed %c
under Saturday at 23%c.
Provisions opened firm on light hog
receipts and an advance at the yards.
Trade was dull, however, hogs turned
easier, there was no export demand and
the wheat weakness wan depressing, all
of which cost the hog produce market
its early gain and more too. September
pork sold between $11 20(711 90 and
closed 2t?c under Saturday at $11 92%.
September lard between $0 92%. and
$G SO? 6 S2>2, closing 5c down at $6 S2^.
and September ribs between $7 05?
7 12'^ and $G 97*?, with the close Gc depressed
at $G 97j,2.

prices here. The nominal
quotations were $35 00. Copper ruled
dull at $15*00. Lead was ulso dull and
unchanged at $3 D7&04 02*?. Old Iron
