Conditions Shown by the Dealings on
Wall Street
NEW YORK Feb. 24,-The slump in the
Stock market this morning was so sudden
and violent that the trading almost took
on panic conditions, but tho uvatancho of
liquidation was over ln less than half an
hour, and then there were some quick re
coveries. Tne dullness and the recupera
tive tendency that followed showed that
the determination to let go at whatever
sacrifice had been quickly abandoned, and
a late drive by the bears found prices by
ho means so unresisting as ln tho morning.
The covering of shorts worked a Bubstan
tlul rally before the close. Tho earpy
slump ranged from 1 to nearly 6 points in
the standard shares, and from that up to
an extreme decline of 12 points In Metro
politan* Street Railway In the specialties.
Recoveries, though sharp In some cases,
were at no time complete ln any stock.
London was also a large buyer during
the day, Its total purchase being estimated
at 10,000 shares, or 100,000 shares ln two
days. Government bonds were strikingly
weak, the declines ln the bid price being
% to 1% per cent.
Money was higher, call loans being from
2% to 3 per cent and time loans for 00 days
were made at 4 per cent, with quite an ad
vance ln them. The calling of loans re
leased quite an amount of sterling ex
ohange, which was held as collateral, and
the exchange market broke sharply, de
mand sterling being quoted at % of v cent
below yesterday's price, at $4.84%. Money
is going Into loans and thus into the active
course of trade.
In the stock market those securities
which suffered the heaviest declines, nota
bly the Grangers, with Burlington lead
ing, and the International stocks, with
Union Pacific preferred the most acute
sufferer, enjoyed sharp rallies, so that
the day's net declines are brought within
a range of 1 to 4 points, outside the spe
Tho movement ln bonds was ln sympathy
with that ln stocks, declines ranging from
I to 2 points. Prices closed somewhat above
the lowest. Total sales, $4,025,000.
United States new fours, coupon, fell %.
but sold 1 per cent above the bid price at
tbe price asked. The' old fours, coupon,
fell 1 per cent bid, the fives %. and the old
fours, registered, % bid.
The sensational fall In stocks unquestion
ably had considerable Influence on wheat,
as Wall street operators extended their
liquidation efforts to the grain pits of both
the New York and Chicago markets. Be
sides this pressure, local bulls were dis
couraged from offering any support, as
foreign markets were unsteady and crop
news favorable. Scalpers therefore sold
short.with Impunity and the market under
these conditions broke 2 cents during the
forenoon. Foreign houses were good sell
ers of wheat here. Sentiment locally has
been growing very bearish in the past few
days, particularly with regard to the July
option, where most of the trade is now
centered. Crop news promises to have a
marked effect from now on. Lelter wheat
recently shipped from Chicago ls arriving
here und will doubtless soon settle the out
ward movement. The range on May today
was from 99% to 1.01%, closing at 1.00%,
against 1.02% last night. July sold from
92 11-16 to 94%, and closed at 92%, against
94% last night.
London market
NEW YORK. Feb. 24.—The Evening
Post's London financial cablegram says:
The stock markets here were dull today,
being depressed by New York and Paris.
Americans were very flat,, chiefly on New
York selling, and closed weak on liquida
tion of some bull accounts.
The China loan ls all underwritten. It
is probably a 4% per cent loan at 90, and Is
inscribed at the bank of England. Details
of the gold movement for the week show
the export of £40,000 to South American
and the receipt of £114,000 from Australia.
Silver Bullion
NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—Bar silver, 55%;
Mexican dollars. 45%.
SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 24.—Bar silver,

Prices and Prospects of the Trade in
CHICAGO, Feb. 24.—Selling orders, es
pecially from the smaller holders, were
very much ln evidence at the opening of
wheat trading, and as limited support was
given the market, the tone at the start and
for some time after was very weak. Open
ing prices of July, which closed yesterday
at 91% c, ranged from 91 to 90%, and ln May
from 1.05 to 1.04%, these figures being I®.
i%c decline from yesterday. Selling or
ders came on the market quickly for a
time and although no large blocks wen
unloaded, the effect of the hammering was
shown ln a decline to 90% ln July and 1.04%
tn May. There the market reacted, under
moderate covering by shorts, July reach
ing 91% and May 1.05%.
These prices proved to be the highest
points of the day. Selling started afresh
at the advance, and prices gradually tend
ed downward and fluctuations were fre
quent. The break In Wall street securi
ties and the Increasing gravity of the Cu
ban reports were the overshadowing in
fluences. Lelter was credited with buy
ing at the decline. The market became
exceedingly dull and remained so until
about 1 2oclock. Then radical weakness
developed. Offerings of long wheat, which
had been small for some time. Increased
In volume, under the influence of rather
sensational Cuban news. There was pres
sure on May wheat, tho crowd believed
due to Lelter. and this served to increase
the nervousness of holders, and prices
steadily declined. Closing cables all
showed weakness. Near the close the
market became very weak, and llttie sup
port from any quarter was forthcoming.
May declined to and closed at 1.03%, and
July declined to 59%689%, closing at 89%.
the latter delivery being supported by a
prominent broker late In the session.
Corn was active and weak, Influenced
by the war news and the break In wheat.
May closed % of a cent lower.
The market for oats was active and
weak. May closed %@% of a cent lower.
Provisions were only moderately active
and weak. At the close May pork was
17% c lower. May lard 7%c lower, and May
ribs 10c lower.

College Men and the Senate
Senator-elect McComas of Maryland was
graduated at Dickinson college, Pennsyl
vania, a fact that reminds us how few of
the graduates of the better-known eastern
colleges are In the United Stales senate.
Gray of Delaware Is a Princeton man:
Lodge and Hoar of Massachusetts, Pen
rose of Pennsylvania, and Pasco of Flor
ida were graduated at Harvard, and Wet
more of Rhode Island ls a Yale alumnus.
Many of the better known senators are not
college men at all, as Messrs. Morgan,
Jones of Arkansas, Piatt of Connecticut
Turple, Lindsay, Hale, Gorman, Burrows,'
McMillan, Carter, Jones of Nevada, Hanna
Aldrloh, Tillman, Mills and Morrill. And
a college education seems to have little
Influence on a man's conservatism or the

Nevertheless the Deep Minnesota
Woods Are Chock Full
of Them
The experience ot R. G. Brooks ln the
Itasca county forest country seems likely
to discourage the enthusiastic posse of
wolf hunters for whose benefit Brooks'
Journey was to some extent undertaken.
Mr. Brooks agreed lo find the most prom
ising hunting ground for a wolf drive, and
there ls no doubt that the territory he
traversed is literally overrun with gray
varmints Intent on tho capture and demo
lition of anything good to tat. Mr. Brooks
has made a report to the thirty-five or
forty people who wanted to trail the wily
wolf to his lair, and the report is that the
Itasca county wolf Is too clover to be seri
ously disturbed by the advent of any num
ber of hunters. To begin with, the coun
try ls difficult to traverse ln winter; there
Is at present Insufficient snow on the
ground to make tracking feasible, and on
top of everything else the wolf Is gevt ral
times as smart as his pursuers can ever
hope to be.
"There are thousands of wolves In the
country I have iust traversed," said Mr.
Brooks this morning, "but the most ex
traordinary thing to me is that one seldom
or never sees a wolf. If a man is caught
out at night he will hear them howling all
around his retreat, and if he stays awake
long enough without making a move of so
much as a finger, he may be rewarded by
a sight of their wild eyes glaring under the
firelight. If he is wounded or in trouble
that prevents him from defending himself
the extraordinary Instinct of these bruies
teaches them that this Is the case, an 1
they will pick his bones clean before morn
ing. Let a man be ln full possession of his
faculties, though, and I would almost be
willing to bet that he might walk the
woods for years In daylight and never see
a wolf. He would see their tracks—mil
lions of tracks—but the wolf has a way of
concealing himself that no white man wots
of. He ls the hardest creature to find that
inhabits the forests of the north.
"I talked with a number of cruisers
men who have been tramping the timber
for years and years and are as familiar
with the wildest part of the forest as you
are with Nicollet avenue. One of the oldest
of these cruisers told me that he had seen
but one wolf In ten years, though he knew
by the tracks he was continually crossing
that there were thousands of them about.
At night we could hear them howling in the
neighborhood of his camp and understand
that he was the center of attraction for a
big pack, but the most he ever could see
of his would-be assailants was the glint of
an eye ln the firelight.
"Another man who has been In the cruis
ing business for fifteen years told me that
he had only seen one wolf in all his experi
ence. He. too, knew that the wolves were
there, but he regarded them as possessed
of ability to render themselves Invisible. He
had even seen the cloud of light snow
kicked up by a gray wolf as he got out of
the Way, but, despite the close quarters
on this occasion, he had seen neither, hide
nor hair of the wolf.
"The more I look into the matter," said
Mr. Brooks, "the less feasible I consider
the scheme of a wolf drive. It ls the easiest
country In the world to get lost In, and
while the hunter Is wandering round like
a blind man through tamarac and poplar
swamps, the wolves, acquainted with
every turn and twist of the undergrowth,
are having a merry time of it at his ex
pense. I can conceive how a hunt, organ
ized and carried out by men who are famil
iar with the lay of the country, might re
sult in the death of a few wolves, but my
belief is that, with a lot of strangers try
ing it there would be nothing but vexation
and hardship to repay them for their
Several gentlemen who were enthusiastic
over the wolf hunting plan a week or two
ago expresed themselves a s convinced that
such a hunt might afford an outing for
those who participated, hut that it would
result in humiliation no less marked than
that which followed the widely heralded
onslaughts on Anoka county wolves. Mr.
Hrooks Is an experienced woodman, and
his opinion, reinforced hy those of old
woods residents, has put an end to wolf
hunting aspirations for this winter at least.

Sea Captains Nowadays Reluctant to
Take Them on Voyages
Hardly a day passes that Shipping Com
missioner Tolman does not have two or
three applications from boys who want to
ship as sailors. The most of these boys are
between the ages of 15 and 18 and have
never been out of the sight of land or seen
a vessel larger than a small coaster. All
of these applicants are treated kindly by
Mr. Tolman, who. after questioning them
as to their homes and parents, their Inten
tions and reasons for wanting to go to
sea, generally ends the Interview by assur
ing the would-be sailors that he has no
opportunity for them to ship at present,
hut will bear them In mind and give them
the first chance that comes along. He ad
vises them to call again in a few days, but
It is not often that the shipping commis
sioner ever hears from them again. The
boys are anxious to see something of the
world, and in nearly every case have good
homes and opportunities for entering some
kind of business which will prove more
lucrative and far more pleasant than a
sailor's life.
The applications from boys are so numer
ous that Mr. Tolman does not pay much
attention to them now. He seldom has a
chance for boys to ship on large vessels,
as no sea captains wish to take them.
There Is sometimes a chance for a boy to
go to sea in the larger vessels which are
bound on long voyages for South America
or the West Indies, but as nearly all the
vessels sailing out of Portland are ln the
coasting trade the shipmasters have no
use for hoys and will not take them if they
can help it.
And yet, though the shipmasters will not
take boys and give them an opportunity of
learning seamanship, they all complain
because there are not to be found more

rrescrlptlom carefully compounded dar or
American sailors. Bald one shipmaster the
other day: "I have not had an Americaii
sailor in my vessel for so long that I cannot
remember the last one. They are all Nor
wegians, Danes, Germans, Nova Scotlans
or I*. E. I's, irishmen or other foreigners.
It seems as if there were no American sail
ors alloat now."
When Shipping Commissioner Tolman
asked this very shipmaster if he had room
on board his vessel for a bright young
American boy who wanted to learn sea
manship, tho master replied: "Why, my
dear 3lr, what use Is a boy to me? I could
not afford tn pay him X a month. I havr
no use for a boy on my ship. A man win '
eats of the bread of my owners must be
able to pay for it and his salt besides." j
Until some chance is given boys to learn
seamanship on American vessels there Is
little chance of there being a great in
crease in the numbers of American sea
men. This Is recognized to be a serious
question by the navy department, and for
tho purpose of encouraging American boys
to learn seamanship the apprentice serv
ice was inaugurated. This is giving tho
navy an able corps of petty and warrant
officers, but the enlisted men in the navy
are still mostly foreigners. The reluctance
of shipmasters to take boys into their ves
sels and teach them the rudiments of sea
manship probably explains the scarcity
of the American sailor on board the Yan
