WHAT SHALL MY MISSION BE?
For The Chicago Tribune.
If I go forth upon tho Held
The warrior** purt to play,
Arid there tho gleaming falchion wield
>!v brother-man to slay.
And* thus I reinforcements-send
The mourners’ ranks to till,
Will God be rav approving- Incnd
And scud me bicssmgs still?
Or if F at some altar stand
To breathe a faithless prayer,
And claim that by Divine command
1 take my station there.
And fun the Uible with my breath
To prove my utterance true.
What earnings should I lind at death
For work 1 thus might do/
'What tho* I stand in lordly stato
Professor of Uio laws, •
Ami lift mv voice in debate
To iraln the world's applause. 4
Then would the world supply my need
Kor ail the life to be: ,
When I should pass beyond us meed,
What would there be for me?
Or with the proud physician's part
I ijonsi of matchless skill.
Professing some mysterious art
Or wondrous power of will:
In all the depths of such a charm
To make the wounded whole,
O could 1 Imd a healing balm
For wounds upon the soul?
Though claims I have to widespread lands
And mines of golden ore.
And grasp in my unworthy hands
The earnings of the poor.
And thus my name should go abroad
O’er all the land and sea.
Bow could 1 carry that to God?
Huw would it answer me/
O lot me have some mission true
.As Jesus had on earth.
Although my friends may be but few,
And goods ol little worth;
Ten, let me tread as Jesus trod
The pathway of tho just—
Then will I carry that to God
With linn and holy mist:
Dn. D. AinmosE Davis.

Bears have not ceased to attack tho stock
market. Among other disquieting statements
put atloat yesterday was that foreign ad
vices were diseouragimr, free sales of American
securities being expected in London this week.

Tho leading produce markets wore less active
Saturday, and irregular. Provisions wore strong*
er, under a very good demand for meals and
lara, which caused pork to advance in sym
pathy. Wheat and corn wero linn, but fell back
towards noon when adverse news was received
about the President’s condition. Oats and rye
were steadier than usual, and barley weak.
Mess pork closed 20c higher, at $15.33<3,18.40 for
October and $19.35®1!».37JS for January. Lard
closed 10® 15c per 100 lbs higher, at $11.72 1 /-®
11.75 for October and $12.20®22.22& for January.
Short ribs closed 15c higher, at $9.75®9.7T , /i for
October. Wheat closed easier, at $1.21i£®1.217i
for September and $1.25?a®L25?4 for October.
Corn closed steady, at for September
and for October. Oats closed steadier,
at 3»J£c for September and 3814’c for October.
Bye closed steady,at $1.03} s for September. Har
ley closed 1c lower.rit SLOO® 1.01 for N 0.2 seller Oc
tober. Hogs were dull and easy, at sG.3s®C.7ofor
light and at SG.OO®G.IK) for heavy. Cattle were
quiet and firm at 53.00&G.50. The receipts for
tho week were 20,000 cattle, 00,500 hogs, and 0.800
sheep.
Tho dry-goods market was destitute of Inter
esting now features. A steadily improving de
mand is reported, and within the next tea days
tho fall trade of ISSI will be fairly under way.
Prices both for cotton aud woolen goods remain
firm. The demand for boots and shoos
is fairly active, uud u liberal movement
in bats and caps, clothing, and mllincry
is also reported. Jobbers of groceries were
busy, both/tho city and country trade ordering
freciv. Prices, without an important exception,
were Ilrm. Sugars just now show special
strength. They were advanced Tho con
tinued warm weather militates against an act
ive movement in coffees, but they are regarded
as good property, and values show no signs of
weakening. In dried and canned fruits there
is a continued free movement at firm prices,
pish remain steady. The demand for butter
exceeds tho supply and the market is strong.
Cheese also is Arm, though trade is ft little
slack, exporters being practically out of tho
market. Oils were firm, and, excepting an ad
vance to 50c In turpentine, values wero un
changed. Coal and pig-iron were quoted as
before. There was a belter supply of cargoes
on tho lumber market, some twelve vessels ar
riving before noon; but there was no softening
of prices. Dealers in hides report a continued
good inquiry with prices firmly maintained.
Hay mot with a good demand at fully former
quotations. Timothy is in scant supply. There
was a fair demand for green fruits at generally
easier prices, tho receipts being more liberal.
Eggs were steady at 14® 15c.
Lake freights were easier at 3V4c on corn and
4c on wheat, to Buffalo. Boom was taken for
about 33,000 bu wheat and 405,000 bu corn.
Ball freights to Now York about 12‘tc per 100
lbs on grain. Carriers arc quite willing to take
that Ilguro when they have cars; but the latter
are quoted scarce.
It is thought by some members of tho Board
of Trade that the bank clearances on Friday
would have been $150,000,000 instead of $30,500,000,
if tbo cheeks had all been made out for property
delivered on September contracts. Tho wait
ing for checks till several hours after the prop
erty has been delivered, and the party receiving it
can get bis pav from some one else, is a very
loose way of doing business. It is simply a re
proach to Hie trade that Saturdays notification
should be required. It is in effect as follows:
All parlies who have delivered stuff to they
don’t know who, and all those who have re
ceived stuff from they don’t know who, should
report the fact to tho olficc of tho Board of
Trade.

shows a falling olf of about 27 per cent as com
pared with tho yield of last year. Tho belief in
short crop has caused a sharp advance under a
buying pressure. It Is estimated that fully 150,-
000 bales have been bought in New York on or
ders from Chicago within a short time past.
Tho rain is and will be welcome. Fall plowing
has been delayed for want of rain, and much
apprehension is expressed in regard to tho crops
of next year, owing to the drouth of the recent
*'a Chicago operator remarked Saturday that
wheat can bo shipped from Toledo to St. Louis

prices are too high, rather than that Chicago
prices are too low.

was also more wanted for consumption in addition to

THE GRAND JURY,
A Batch of ludictiuouts, Including

Solemnly Itelcr It to the City Author
ities.
The Grand Jury yesterday completed its
work and was discharged by Judge Gardner.
They returned thirty-two indictments into
court and tound no bills in a great many
cases, including those o£ John Elliott,
charged with the murder of Ollieer Moloney,
and it. L. Monroe, charged with committing
abortion. The indictments were care
fully filed away by the Clerk, and some
of the parties named have not yet
been arrested. Capt. Hen Eyster was in
dicted for me murder of Schumacher, and
Ed Kelly (who is still at large) for man
slaughter in killing Officer Daniel Crowley.
Indictments for murder, burglary, and rob
berv were returned against Austin liyrncs,
Griffith Deuton, Max Weber, Itudolph Von
ilesslen, and Charles Grilfith, who arc
charged with the killing and robbery of
Lazarus Stern on South Clark street. James
Cunningham was indicted for the mni'der of
Ids wife out in the Deering street police dis
trict. Thomas, J nines, and Ellen Cahill were
jointly
INDICTED FOR THE MURDER OF OFFICER P.
O’BRIEN.
Wang Lee was indicted for the murder of
Charles Manslield, and John Stanners for the
murder of his mistress. Lizzie Cleveland, both
these beimr South Clark street tragedies.
Asa Gridin was indicted for bigamy.
The Grand Jury reported that they had ex
amined into a number of cases of homicide,
and in most cases indictments hud been
found. Some of these cases were not sup
ported by sufficient legal evidence to convict
the accused, and the indictments were found,
as the report states, “ more because of the
apparent expectation that a Grand Jury will
indict wherever a human lifehas been taken,
than because legal evidence was presented
fixing a crime upon anybody.”
The Grand Jury directed the attention of
the Court to an
APPARENT NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF
THE POLICE
with regard to obtaining evidence in murder
cases, and cited various instances. Bernard
Murphy and John Keron. for instance, are
charged witli stabbing John Hans. The act
occurred June I, and Haus died June 25.
Benjamin Eyster shot John Schumacher
June 29, and the man died July 3. Wang Lee
stabbed Charles Mansfield June 11, andMaus
lielddied iii the County Hospital Aug. 1.
John Stanners murdered Eliza Cleveland.m
a ranch on South Clark street. Edward
Kelly is charged with shoot
ing Officer- Ban Crowley July
and Crowley lived until Aug. 4.
in four of these cases there were no eye-wit
nesses but the murderer and the victim, and
the Grand Jury claim that greater pains
should have been taken to secure the dying
declarations. This was done in one case
only (that of Schumacher), and then in such
a manner as to bo worse than useless. In
the Lizzie Stanners ease, which the jury say
“shows every indication of being a most
atrocious and cold-blooded murder,” the wit
nesses were not forthcoming, and the whole
case depends on the evidence of a single wit
ness, who since the night of the murder has
shown every inclination to conceal his knowl
edge.
CONCEALED WEAPONS.
The Grand Jury reported that the habit of
carrying concealed weapons had attained
dangerous proportions. But they could lind
no remedy for the evil within their statutory
powers. They thought that possibly thosale
of pistols, revolvers, and knives might be
regulated bv license, and that men currying
them should be reiiuired to wear badges. In
conclusion, the jury referred the matter to
the Mayor and City Council, to give u that
attention which its importance demands.
The County Jail was pronounced to be m
good condition as to cleanliness.
V reporter of The Tiiibu.ve questioned
rolice-Snperimcndent McGarigle about the
alleged negligence of the police in hunting
up evidence in cases of homicide, niq&u
perintendent said the complaint was entirely
without foundation. The police not only ar
rested murders and lodged them in jail, hut
followed up and kept an eye on witnesses,
although after the accused passed into the
hands-of the'Sheriff this matter properly
-came under the care of that officer and his
bailiffs. The police had no authority to de
tain witnesses, they moved awaj, as
sometimes oee-r- I ,ollce " -ere V°'li e - r '
less. As to the c“ jSffiaints about neglect in
getting ante-n'.orlrvjfjtalenieiU-S, Mr. Mc-
Uariglc said they wetJ
XOT JUSTIFIES nv THE FACTS.
Such statements, to be of value as evidence,
must be made by Uie victim when lie be
lieves lie is about to die. In the case ot
Officer Crowley, for instance, nobody
thought lie was near death. the Superin
tendent telephoned for information about
him only ah hour or two before lie died, and
was informed that lie was getting along all
rigid, lie could not believe that the police
had been derelict in this or similar cases, and
said that, considering the present strain
unon the force, which lie holds to he entire
ly inadequate to the needs of the city, every
tiilng that could be asked of them was
being done, lie fully approved the dec
laration of the Grand Jury in regard to the
carrying of concealed weapons, and wanted
to see anything done which would put a
check to the dangerous practice.

Ul ™’ Do Bacourt went to Washington,
whence he wrote on July 4:
“ 1 went yesterday to see the President at

,v ' V few minutes after my arrival, a gen
tleman entered in whom I had some dimculty
in recognizing Mr. Van Enron, lie hau grown
so much stouter. lie wore a black coat,
trousers, and hoots, which consoled me
somewhat for not having my own umfoim,
which lias not yet arrived. In giving linn

lie answered in English, and this ceremony

the ‘ American Talleyrand,’ and lie appears
to be much flattered by the title, for in talk

• Wonderful man! ’ Air. AanE. is generally
considered to he a clever man. though more
in regard to his personal affairs than those
o£ the Nation.” . - „ , . ■
A few days later De Baconrt dined with
the President., '
“As the dinner was given for me, I had
the place of honor, though all the diplomatic
corps was present—this is a courtesy which
they show to strangers. The President toolc
my arm and conducted me to the dining-room.
The table furniture was elegant The French
cook lias since told my valet a very curious
fact which I give you: Dunug the Presiden
tial campaign people come unceremoniously
to the candidate’s house for breakfast or din
ner, and threaten to vote against him if tney
are not satisfied! The. cook says that it is
extremely difficult to satisfy them, and that
they otten send back the things that are
served to them, saying that they are bad. My
servant says, gravely: ‘ It appears that being
a President is not always agreeable.’
“Mr. Van Buren is the son of a tavern
keeper; he lias good manners—and four sous.
“ The American of the Northern States is
of tiie English type, combined with the
finesse and cleverness of the Jew; Is this
mixture of pride, coldness, and British stiff
ness. with Hebrew cunning, which makes of
the Yankee a being apart. The \ ankces are
Englishmen in soul, notwithstanding the
contempt which is felt for them by the natives
of the mother country* It is to England that
they go for their manners, their tastes, their
fashions* their prejudices—even to their an
tipathy to France ami Frenchmen. .Tlie
Yankees, much more civilized than* their
compatriots of the South, would willingly
admit an aristocracy with all the decrees of
superiority one finds in England; and
in the New England States it would
take very little change to establish
the same government they have in
England. In the South, on the contrary,,
they incline rather toward the French, and—
I say it with pain—it is the worst things
about us which they adopt. They are vain
and jealous of tlie superior civilization of tlie
North, which they desire to crusli by the
principles of extreme democracy. There Is
inithe West a third race, which iscomuosedof
emigrants from tlie States of the North and
South. Ireland, and Germany. It is called, in
mv opinion, to play in the United States tlie
principal role, and to dominate in a few
years the two others.
“I consider the Anglo-American race as
charged with the providential mission of
peopling and civilizing this vast continent.
It is accomplishing that task without regard
ing any hindrance, and this is what explains
the notorious anomalies pointed out by all
who have written about America. It is not
just to criticise details when the
whole Is grand, majestic, impos
ing! Tlie fault of tlie Americans
is not in limiting their pretensions to the suc
cess they have attained, in persistently com
paring themselves to European nations and
claiming over them superiority of every sort.
This is their great fault, and one that often
renders them ridiculous.
“I have lately seen Mine. Jerome Bona
parte—MissPatterson. She is a large woman,
whose face preserves still the remains of
rare beauty, but without tlie least expression.
One would say that she was as good as she
was tiresome,”
THE HENSLEY MURDER.
Keenan’* Alibi Very Badly Shattered
on llebuttnl Testimony
The trial of John Keenan for the murder
of Mr. J. P. E. Hensley was resumed in the
Criminal Court yesterday morninff. The de
fense introduced three withesses who testi
fied that the freight car No. 5,014, in which,
according to Keenan’s testimony, he mid his
“uals” came In from Oak Park, did ar
rive on the morning of Nov. 13, ISTO. This
closed the case for the defense.
Mr. Kobert Birdsall, clerk of the North
western freight oflice, was recalled by the
prosecution and used as a witness in rebut
tal. He testified that the “delivery-book”
containing the records of cars received was
kept in the freight-house, accessible to al
most everybody. ' ,
diaries 11. Bodekcr, employed at the sup
ply house of the Chicago & Northwestern
Kaiiroad Company, testified that in Novem
ber, 1579, he acted: as switchman and night
watchman on the comer of Ada and Kinzie
streets. In that capacity it was Ids business
to examine the “ seal records ” or pieces of
tin with' which cars are sealed. He pro
duced Ids record-book, by which it appeared
that on the morning of Nov. 13, IST9,
car No. 5,014, in which Keenan swore
that he and his partners rode in from Oak
Park, "was locked and 'scaled. There were
tin tags on all the doors but one, and that
was securely fastened. It followed of course
that no one had stolen a ride in this particu
lar car on that particular occasion, and when
it is remembered that Keenan’s alibi rests
entirely on his allegation that he and his
associates rode in that car, the inference that
ids alleged night-trip to Oak Park and re
; turn was a figment of the brain will readily
suggest itself. „ , ,
Prank C. Waite, keeper of the seal records
for the Galena-Division of the Chicago A:
Northwestern Kaiiroad, Identified a book as
being in the handwriting of Mr. Black, his
predecessor at the State Street Station, who
is now in California. The book showed that
car No. 5.014 arrived at that station on the
morning of Nov. 13,15T9, with all its doors
and windows cither locked or sealed, and
some of them doubly secured.
Mr. BrinkerholTj Local freight Agent of
the Chicago & Northwestern Kaiiroad Com
pany, described the method of sealing cars,
and testified that cars could not be entered
without the violation of the seals.
The State’s-Attomey said that was his
case, and, the jury having retired, the law
yers and the Court discussed the Question ot
adjournment, finally-concluding that, as the
case could not possibly be concluded that
day, an adjournment should be taken until
10 o’clock Monday morning. '
