Tho street-dusting machine Is fast becoming n

placoof having these machines perform tholr
work after 13 o'clock, thoy nro permitted to go
on tho slroirts a llitlo after dark, when tho
sidewalks nro swarming with people, nnd the
stores me tunny ot them open. Early Inst night
one of thosu ponderous street-sweepers was
driven south on Dearborn street, taking up (bo
dust In Its course am) filling tbo air so full of It
Hint one could scarcely sco a length abend.
Along ihu edge of tho curbstones tbo dust was
left,—often a consldcrnblo’qunntity of It,—to bo
scattered again by tho first breath of tbo wind.
Tho sidewalks were half covered, and tho goods
exposed in tbo open stores must have been
more or loss Injured. Thu machine perhaps
dues Ms work ns well as any In uno.but why such

which tbo Mayor Is probably hotter qualified lo

bad participated wero closo-mouthod, hut from
tho best information that could be gleaned
It was understood that It had been determined
to enforce tho fine against nil non-unionists.
Tho line Is $5 and tho initiation feu the same
amount, so It will hereafter cost those who have
been wonting outside tho Union tho sum of $lO
to Join. There is no question ns to wages among

Olivet Baptist Church, of this city* Is nt pres

of which became duo tho Ist of January. Tho

Tho church was burnt up In 1874 and tho In
surance was lost; and, in addition to all this,
there wero heavy assessments for street
openings and improvements. Tho prop
erty Is valued at $30,000, and tho

of the New York companies proper for tho tlrst

moro ho pave it thought tho more ho favored tho

vate parties do It. His Idea was that the oily
ought to bavo an additional works, which it
could buy at some future lime. Those works
would give additional tiro protection ond bo
used In Hushing our paved streets every
night, which was tho only correct way
to clean tbom, mid would save largo mnuunts of
money each year for street sweeping. If a tun
nel should break or cave in, or tho urlb be dam
aged, tho citizens might be without lire protec
tion, whereas if there were auxiliary works that
protection would bo furnished, audit was a
comparatively easy thing to haul water for

chimneys which belched forth tho black smoko
In all parts of tho uity belch It forth stronger
than over. Tbo tugs and locomotives show no
Improvement, but continue to darken and con
tulmlua'u tho atmosphere with tholr soot and
smoko. Tho Mayor may sco an improvement,
but nobody else docs. Tbe fact Is the ordinance
is laughed nt, because people believe it is
Hko tho barbed-wire fence, the concealed
weapon, tho small fruits, tho dog. tbo beggar,
organ-grinders, sign-obstruction, ban ana-peel,
ami oilier useful ordinances, supposed to beue
llttho public, but which arc a dead letter, and
no ulfori Is tnaiio to enforce them. Chicago has
lots of good laws, but they aro nil apparently
dead letters. Canada thistles are tho only ene
mies of Chicago people.

■WHEAT.
trim MAUKBT EXCITED HUT LOWP.It.
Tlio wheat market wns excited but lower
yesterday, with moderate trading. Tho reports
concerning tbo condition of tho President nat
urally created mi uncertain feeling on tjio
Hoard. There appeared to ba less anxiety
about tbo onicomoof tbo August dent, though
tbo air wns full of gossip about 11, and many
were of tbo opinion Hut tbo longs were ready to
sell out and retire from the pit. This Idea was
started by the free otferlngsjfor August deliv
ery early In tho day, which were supposed lo
have been made by tho clique's brokers. Tho
shorts seemed Indilidhinl about taking tbo stulf
so generously ottered, and August, winch opened
nt $1.33 per bushel, dropped olf to $1.30. recover
ing Inter to $1.31, ami closing at about $1,304.
Considering tho ’ surroundings. August prices
wore fairly sustained, and sellers allured the
property rather gingerly toward* tho Inst.
The Interview with Mr.T. H. Handy, of Cin
cinnati, which was published In yesterday's
Tin hunk, seemed to have been generally rend
by Hoard of Trade men. and thoy were ns full of
criticisms uud gabble as a good lemon Is of add.
"Thoro never wns a time," said one operator,
"when there wns a shortage of IW.OUU.OOO bushels
for one month out In this market. There Is not
n big line out for August now, and tbo ring
leaders will got tholr (ill. Wheat will bu shipped
hero from Milwaukee and other points till this
market is Hooded with it."
Apropos of Milwaukee, tboro was about six
cents' dllTorenco yesturdny on August wheat
between that market mid Chicago, if tho two
markets kcop about three cents apart, there is
n profit, at present lake freight rates, of about
one-(|imrtcr cunt a bushel on wheat shinned fynm
Milwaukee to this city. Nobody cares to ship
now and pay storage here, but In n few days
tho wheat can bo carried Into next month with
out extra storage, mid if August keeps up In
this market tho shorts may eoiieludo to buy in
Milwaukee, and have tho wheat brought hero
and delivered. Tho stock tboro Is considerable.
Tbo New York market was ouo cent above Chi
cago Monday, with no quoted change yesterday.
" The parties running tho deal," said a broker
yesterday, "nmdo a blunder In
TitVIMI TO RITHCT A BQUKK7.B
in next month on tbo llSth of July, it Is too
early to spring tho trap. Tho clique wore sell
ing yesterday as fast as thoy could get anybody
to buy, mid Imvo been striving to unload for tbo
past two days. Thoy Imvo held tho price up
Well. The snorts appear to bo less anxious to
settle because they nro margined up so high,
many of them being up to $1.25 per bushel."
It was reported during tho day that somo
houses had refused to put up any more money
on margins, and Intended to apply to tho Hoard
of Directors to enforce tho rule which provides
that tho margins shall he regulated by tho ship
ping value of iho grain.
Thu longer futures wore traded In to some ex-
tent, but operators seemed Inclined to bo a little
shy of whoatou general principles. 'September
was uttered ratbor freely, mid it was thought u
fair Hue of shorts -was put out, with tbo
"clique" on tho buying side. Homo argued that
tbo tdg discount on Heptombor was Just what
tho bulls wauled, as they hoped It would Induce
tho boars to sell extensively, so that thoy might
squeeze thorn again ns they tmvo In August.
Heptember wheat sold at (1.15 U down to $1.1!1t4,
and was quoted at fl.Hifc and 81.HJ4 at tho
close.
Mr. Handy was nskod If ho could throw any
additional light on tho. wheat question yester
day, but shook his hem! and remarked that ho
bud said too much already.

ns to tbo progress of tbo work Mr. Peek, with an
occasional help from Mr. Evans, replied: “Wo

“Von will oncountor tbo opposition of tho

“We arc only bore looklutr over the ground,
and wo are nnabio to say yet how wo shall at
tempt to come in." .
“Have you considered tbo underground ques
tion; 1 ’
" Indeed wo have," replied Mr. Kvuas. "Our
experts buvo been giving tho thing a groat deal
of study, As yet wo have not hit ou anything
which Is absolutely sum of success. There aru
several excellent systems, but wo do not yet
know wbethor they will prove successful when
placed in practical operation anu subjected to
the great test of constant use. (Irout struts Is
laid uy thu udvocalesof the underground system
on (ho fact that the wires uro thus laid fu Bu
rope. Tburoare, however, tunny dllfcronccs in
bo considered. In Paris most if not all of the
wires aro laid lit tho great sovrers, in which a
man could live. In Uermany thu wlrus aru laid
underground, but there arc not as many In all

Chicago. There Is a vast difference In the

If wo. tlm youngest company, have to make this
experiment, by which thonthor companies ernihl
pnillt, wo ought to have every advantage afford
etl u«."
•' There Is one feature about this underground
business,' said Mr. Peek, "which seems to have
been overlooked. That Is, tho fact that tho tele
phone companies nro responsible for the greater
part of this wire and polo nuisance. They have
vastly more wires, and If tho telegraph com
panies wore alnno tho trouble would bo Might,
Now, tho telephone wires cannot bo put under
ground. and I believe that when the two
years am up, tho telephone companies wilt not
bo disturbed. It Is almost Impossible for them
to put their wires underground. They radiate
to every house, and to put a single wire under
ground would cost ns much ns to place ton wires
on poles. If tho telephone companies had to
put tholrratosup to to doa paying busi
ness, they will tmvo to again double tbom If tho
wires are put underground. I don't argue for
tho telephone companies, for 1 don't care about
them, but tho}* will llnd it almost an Impossibil
ity to comply with the new orders. Ho far ns tho
telegraph companies nro concerned, they nro
willing to put their wires underground If they
can bo assured of proper protection and Insula
tion, and under certain circumstances they
might oven prefer this system."
Tho Interview dosed with thoassurnneonn tho
part of tho gentlemen that tho company would bo
In tho Held ready for tho public by October, and
that thoy would make a determined oilort to
miter Chicago underground it given a proper
franchise.

" Tho Cruntlons of Prometheus," which was first
produced In Vienna In IKOI, and Ibon disap
peared from the singe for many years, reap

numbers, and of ihuao Mr. Thomas ohoso three,
—tho Overture, tbo majestic Ailouiu, and tho
Finnic, Mr. Michael Ilrand taking tho cello obli
gato in masterly stylo. Tho second number was
tho overture to Hlmkspcaro's " Corlolauus," tho
moaning of which occupied tho attention of so
many critics until Wagnor pointed nut that It
represented tho scone between Corlolmuis, his
mother, mid bis wlfo on tho biittic-tlQld be
fore tho gates of his native ally. Hays Wag
ners "Tho opening phrasesnf the overture bring
before us at ouco tho llguro of tho man, his
prodigious power, indomitable solf-eotiUdcneo,
eager deUniice, and restless heart. Hoon tho
wonmuly element Is muuil'cstod In the grneo,
tenderness, mid gentle dignity of the theme.
One might be tempted to follow tho music stop
by stop till Iho conclusion is reached In which tho
hero, meeting his death-blow at his own hands,
falls to tbo ground. The third number was tho
bountiful Heptet, written In 1800 and dedicated
to tho Gmpress Marla Theresa. Ttio Septet, ns
written, contains an AiUtulo, Allegro cun brio,
ylfhit/io-cmtinhite, Minuet, Themoand Variations,
Scherzo Andante non tnnlo, and /Vcafo, and of
those Mr. Thomas selected the fifth, sixth, and
last parts. Tho Hoptet brought out in magnifi

Alkitro irni non Iroww, which expresses tho
awakening of cheerful feelings on arriving In
too country; tho Andante, or "Heono at tbo

bird songs; tho AUeyro, representing the merry

Cllad and Qrutofnl Feelings After tbo Htorm,
In Its every part this gout la, delicate, mid beau

To the Editor af The Chicago 3W6unr.
CniCAno, July 27.—1 n common with all
lovers of truo art In music, I am watch
ing with the greatest satisfaction, tho un
quallllod success of Mr. Theodore Thomas'
series of magnificent concerts, now in
progress nt tho Exposition Building. In this
success wo havu tho best proof of tho rapid
growth of public appreciation of tbo best music
when adequately presented; Would It not bo
well, 1 suggest, for us to secure tho services of
.Mr. Thomas for a series of Philharmonic con
certs during tho mining winter. There can bo
no question that any musical enterprise led by
Mr. Thomas must succeed In Chicago after this
summer's scries closes. Arrangements could
bo made while-sir. Thomas Is hero bettor than
later, and I suggest that tho necessary stops bo
taken to secure him fora grand mid-winter se
ries ol entertainments of 'tho same high stan
dard ns those now so greatly enjoyed by ourcll-
Izons, If properly managed, there can bo no
trouble In securing a subscription list that wilt
put tbo venture on a aafo financial basis. Tho
groat number of our ultlzens who nro out of
town, and who am regretting their Inability to
share our present enjoyment of tbo Thomas or
chestra will gladly .avail themselves of tho op
portunity tbo series proposed will afford.
Hoping Immediate attention will bo given to

lira., tbo extensive lumber-dealers doing busi
ness on tho comer of Twenty-second and Loomis
streets. Tho head of this llrm Is Jacob Deldlur,
nn old, rospculod, and wealthy citizen, who In
IKTi-Td served in Iho Connell as one of tbo
Aldermen from tho Ninth Ward.
I.ABT FiIIDAV EVENING,
between 7 and 7:30 o'clock, young Doldlor loft
bis homo mi tbo curnor of Sangamon mid Jack
son streets.- Ho bad Just partaken of supper
with his family, mu) was cheerful and pleasant
ns usual, showing no signs of mental disturb
ance or trouble. Homo letters from tho office
had to bo mailed, and of these bo took olmrgu
mid started down-town to got thorn in tho Post-
Office by 8 o'clock. Tbls was the last soon of Ibo
unfortunate young man by any of bis family.
It Is not yet absolutely established whom
young Deldler wont immediately after leaving
his homo, but at about a quarter past 8 o'clock
he culled at tho retddoueo of Felix C. Dixon, No.
UUS West Van Duron street. Ho bud some busi
ness to transact with Mr. Dixon relative to enter
ing upon tuo coni trade on Ids own account, but,
owing to tho sickness of Mrs. Dixon, nothing was
done nboullho matter at ihlslntcrvlow. Doldlor
talked with Dlxuu nt tho door for a few minutes,
and then walked away In company with a man
who had apparently been waiting for him on the
sidewalk u few foot away. Thu most mysterious
thing about tbo whole case is ns to tho identity
of this companion, tbo Inst man scon with Mr.
Deldler.
Tho family nud friends of tho deceased unite
n saving that ho was quiet ami retiring la ills
losltlon,
HAVING FFAV OU NO ASSOCIATE
outside his own Immediate circle. All bis
known associates and acquaintance's have boon
questioned. but It scorns that no ono of them
saw him on Friday evening. Mr. fiddler did not
drink, mid bad no bad habits. Hu Boldom enmo
down-town except lor tbo purpose of mailing
letters, and whs never known to go upon tbo
lake yachting or rowing. Those who know him
best entirely repudiate the idea that ho emMd
have been led away by bud company,
and express thole entire inability to oven
theorize as to whut led tbo 111-futod young man
to tbo Lake-Front. His Recounts wore all
straight, bo bad no money with him' moro than
a few dollars, and ho was not known to bavo un
enemy In tbo world.
A reporter of Tub TiunuNß viewed tbo body
ns it lay on tbo pier nt Twenty-seventh street a
few minutes after it had been drawn from (ho
water. Ollicor HlortU bad Just arrived and
bad begun bis search for evidences ot
Identification. Tbeso wore soon found
In ntnplo number. Tbo deceased had
In bis pockets a • number of private letters ad
dressed to John lloldler nt bis residence and
place of business, as well ns letters addressed to
and cards of tbo llrm of J. lloldler & ilro. There
was n wallet containing In small change,
and In tbo pockets woro some pencils, pens, n
screwdriver, and other smalt articles. Tho
clothes woro buttoned tightly around tho body
when It was found. The head was terribly
swollen and discolored, so much so that tbo
brothers of tbo deceased were unable to identify
tbo features.
TJIK. BODY WAS RRHOVKD
to tbo Cottage On)vo Avonuo Station ami was
tboro viewed by Uio rolntlvcs, who fully satis
fied themselves of tbo Identity, tho loiters,
clothing, etc., affording uncontrovertible evi
dence on this bead. Bovcralof tbo brothers of
tho deceased and otbor gentlemen who had'
known him or bna been associated with him In
business stated tbo facts ns tobls disappearance.
Tbo family did not become alarmed until Satur
day morning, having supposed that ho had gone
to sloop with bis cousin, Herbert Hold
lor, at No. 41) South Saiuraraon street.
That day a search was inaugurated,
and one of the brothers looked through tho books
of tbo lumber firm to soo If tboro wore any
discrepancies or shortages there. Everything
was found In tbo best of order, tho cash, of
which tbo deceased had charge, was correct to
tho Inst cent, and by reference to bis private ac
count It was found that he had a balance to his
credit, and bad drawn no money since July IS.
Tho only valuables which ho was known to hnvo
with him when ho loft homo wore a handsomu
gold watch nnd chain, and these, It sbonld bo
stated, vrero not on tbo body wbou found.
Tbo sourcb mudo upon tbo pier was necessari
ly a busty one, and It was not until after tbo
body had boon removed to the undertaker's es
tablishment that u further exploration brought
toiightapockoibook containing, among other
papers, tho letters which Mr. lioidlur look to
mall an Friday night. It was suited that bo
Journeyed down-towu that evening with a
friend, who loft him on tho corner of Btnto
and Madison or Clark and Madison streets,
but of ibis there was no posi
tive evidence. If ho did so it would
-scarcely have been possible tor him to have re
turned to Dixon's place on West Vim Uumi
street byß:lf> n. in. The body was found to bo
in such condition that It was Impossible to de
termine, without examination by a medical man,
whether a wound bud been Indicted or not.-
There wore marks, apparently of blood, on tbo
shirt, but tbolr origin could nut bo trncod.
A I’OST-MOKTHM EXAMINATION
will be made and tbo inquest held to-day, when
sumo light may possibly bo sbed ou tbo mystery
of John IJoldlor sdealti,
Tho father and mother of the deceased tiro at
present sojourning la tbo Adirondack Mount
tains, tbolr exact wbcreulmuts being unknown.
Hath aro advanced in years mid of feeble health,
and tbo gravest fears are entertained of tho ef
fect of the nows mraii thorn. Thu family ox
£rcss tbolr Intention of probing tbo case to tbo
attorn, and, If any evidences of tout play tiro
brought to light, they will spare neither
trouble nor expense to ferret out tbo
facts. A gentleman connected wllb u
lumber Una stated to a Tiuuunb reporter
that lie believed the melancholy atfulr was tbo
result of accident, nnd repudiated alike tho
theories of murder or suir-sfaiiglitor. Dot three
points roinnin undetermined; What took Mr.
ifeldler to tbo Mike-Front. who was bis tin
known and mysterious companion, mid was bo
shot, out. ur slugged before bo reached tlio
water/ Possibly those points may bu rosulvud
at tbo Inquest.
