Bears Make Another Raid on
Railroad Stocks.
Sew England the Principal Point of
northern Peelfio and Industrials Alio
Depressed—A Receivership for
the New England Road
Minted At.
B7 the Associated Press.
Nsw York, Feb. 24.—A decidedly
bearish sentiment existed in Wall etreet
this morning, bnt the day developed a
material change in this respect, and
while resistance was given to the de
clines in the leading weak stocks, the
market as a whole showed a disposition
to break away from the influence of
these stocks, as their movements were
the resnlt of a special cause and not
justified by the general situation. The
outgo of gold for tomorrow was rednced
to a mere nominal sum, and money waß
decidedly easier than for some time be
fore the holidays. While little attention
was paid to tbese infinences, they evi
dently had fnll effect, and weak, feverish
and unsettled speculation changed into
strong trading.
Feeling at the opening was very un
easy. The liquidation in New England
waß believed to be by no means com
plete, and hints that the Beading was
in a crippled condition threatened to
make it a heavy load. There were
broad hints of onsting McLeod from the
receivership. Even Northern Pacific
was threatened with a receivership, and
thongh insiders most emphatically de
nied the possibility of snch a thing,
liquidation in its stock continued.
The market opened excited and very
active, Belling being largely by shorts.
The losses at the start ranged np to 1%,
Western Union leading. Whisky, su
gar, cordage and lead were subjected to
specially heavy pressure among indus
trials, and New England and Northern
Pacific among railroads. Heading was
stubbornly held and comparatively
Quiet. Cordage broke 5 ! „, sugar 4',,,
New England Distillers North
ern Pacific preferred 2. The last-named
afterwards recovered all the loss and
more; distillers nearly recovered; the
others made partial rallies. At 11
o'clock the market was active and firm
•t a rally.
After 11 offerings of stocks became
very free, and prices, as a general thing,
retired to abont the lowest point. Sugar
was especially pressed for sale in the
belief that the sales of the last few days
bad been by a pool, and the price
dropped to 111%. New England went
to 31 ' 4 , againat 37 last evening. Coalers
were strong, however, rising 1%@2. At
noon the market waa active and firm;
slightly above the opening.
After being driven down to tt&, New
England rallied 1 per cent. Demand
for Beading became urgent and ad
vanced 2, from 29%. Lackawanna
gained 4%, at 147; Delaware and Hud
eon, 3}£, to 127>8. The appearance of
White in tbe sugar crowd reversed the
course of the stock and a rally of 3 per
cent, to 114>£, followed. Cordage sym
pathized with a like advance to 00,
while the strength of the rally disap
peared toward 2 p. m., as the covering
of shorts slacked away, and prices again
receded from the highest point. The
market at 2:15 was still active and again
heavy, with railroads aa a rule at close
to the beat, but with the leading weak
stocks only a slight gain over the lowest.
Stocks were active and steady in the
last hour. Sugar advanced 1 per cent
more. The market cloeed active and
Notwithstanding the denial of the ru
mors about New England, the decline
waa not checked and the stock closed
weak. The only other prominent fea
ture of the market dealings waa sugar.
The belief was general that the liquida
tion in progress waa for the account of
the pool, and a decline of nearly 5 per
cent to waa established in the fore
noon. This was recovered in the after
noon. The general list showed a firm
temper and fractional advances were the

Chios Bradway Has Her Seventh Elope
Miss Chios Bradway has run off again.
This is her seventh eiopement. It was
learned thia afternoon from a reliable
source that Bhe left her home in Center
ville about 8 o'clock last evening;, and
came to Fresno, says the Expositor of
that city of Thursday, and took the mid
night train for Loa Angeles. The man
she ran away with thia time ia Baid to
be Ed Yonng. Brock Limbaugh accom
panied the runawaya aa far ac Fresno aa
a guard, and to take the horae and cart
The outfit waß a borrowed one, the
horse belonging to Fint Overhall and
the cart to William McKaley. In this
borrowed rig they all three came to
Fresno, and Limbaugh took the horae
and cart back.
Thia ie the Beventh time the girl haa
eloped, and ehe ie not quite 17 years old
She hae a mad desire for fame, and
wante to rival and eurpaea Queen Cleo
patra. She thinks ehe can do it by a
large number of elopements. Her friends
have tried hard lo break her of her
foolishness, but in vain.
She eloped once with Brook Limbaugh,
and twice he haa gone with her and
thoee who were running away with her.
She evidently thinka Limbaugh a pretty
fine young fellow. He goea along to
protect her and her lovere, and then
when he gets a good chance he runs off
with her himßelf.
It will probably not be long before she
will be heard from again.

How to Save Doctor Bills.
[Chicago Daily Calumet.]
Many a doctor's bill has been saved
by the use of Chamberlain's Cough
Eemedy. The name is a household
word in many parts of the country.
Chamberlain's medicines have an ex
tensive sale in the world's fair city and
many people testify to the merits of
their different remedies. For sale by
0. F. Heinzeman, 222 North Main street,
The Hollenbeck hotel has changed
hands. Messrs. E. G. Fay Sc Son have
sold their lease of the popular hostelry
and the furniture. The purchaser is
Mr. A. C. Bilicke, formerly of the Paci
fic Ocean house, Santa Cruz, Cal. Mr.
Bilirke is a hotel man of experience and
will undoubtedly not only sustain the
excellent reputation the Hollenl eck al
ready has, but will add to it. Mr. Bil
icke will take possession of the hotel on
the Ist. The price which governed the
transfer haft not been given.
As she enters
•womanhood, every young girl needs
the wisest care. Troubles beginning
then may make her whole life mis
But tho troubles that are to bo
feared havo a positive remedy. Dr.
Pierces Favorite Prescription builds
up and strengthens the system, and
regulates and promotes every proper
function. It's a generous, support
ing tonic, and a quieting, soothing
nervine—a legitimate medicine, not
a beverage, free from alcohol and
injurious drugs. It corrects and
cures, safely and surely, all thoso
delicate derangements, weaknesses,
and diseases peculiar to tho sex.
A remedy that does cure is one
that can be guaranteed. That's
what the proprietors of " Favorite
Prescription " think. If it doesn't
give satisfaction, in every case for
which it's recommended, they'll re
fund the money. No other medicine
for women is sold on such terms.
Decide for yourself whether some
thing elsp sold by the dealer, is
likely to be "just as good" for
you to buy.
