New York, Dee. 13.—'The Tribune will say tomorrow: Much surprise was created In financial circles by the announcement yesterday afternoon that Lombard & Ayres of No. 12 Broadway had suspended payments. The firm, which is composed of Joseph Lombard and Marshal Ayres, has had extensive oil and lumber interests and has had a high capital rating. Joslah Lombard, the head of the firm, was busy In consultation with lawyers today, and a reporter who went to his house was not able to see him. Mr. Lombard s cousin, whose name is also Josiah Lom bard. was at the house, and said to the reporter: “It is true that the firm of Lombard & Ayres backed the Seaboard Lumber company, and that the troubles of that company have involved the firm In financial difficulties. The firm today suspended payment on some papers, -but the members of the firm have no inten tion of making an assignment at pres ent. They believe that they will lose nothing, or very little, on account of the troubles of the lumber company, but they think the assets of the lumber com pany will fee found In excess of Its liabil ities. Of course much depends upon the manner In which the matters, of the lumber company are settled up." Old napewi xor sale cheap at this office. _ Alabama Conference. Montgomery.

Cummtng is off to the Meth odist conference this week. The dwelling house of Capt. W. T. Northington will be completed soon, and your correspondent learns that it will be the costliest dwelling in Prattville. There Is some talk of Prattville put ting in electric lights to light up the streets. It is to be hoped that it will be done soon. S. D. McBemore, one of our very clever merchants, is adding to his storehouse 20 foot in length to give him plenty of storage room. The board of revenue of Autauga coun ty has made the proper arrangements to have the principal public roads graded through the county. Wagons, scrapes, mules, etc., cost the county about $700. The cost of grading will be heavy, but Autauga county is out of debt and am ply able to put her roads in good condi tion. and it seems that our authorities are determined to give us good roads. We learn that the Dan Pratt Gin com pany Of this place will shut down Satur day, the 14th, for two weeks, to give op portunity to pot the machinery in good repair for 1896. It is the company's cus tom to repair generally once a year. This is a splendid town to build some neat dwellings and make handsome dividends. The only real estate agent in town has more demands for dwellings than he has houses to supply. Democrats In this part of the state are In favor of harmony. Woe unto the man who is willing to agitate and perpetuate the old division. Democrats here are go ing to support the nominee of the state convention, whether his opinion Is for free and unlimited and independent coin age of silver or single gold standard.

Atlanta has the exposition, but Bir mingham will have the mardi gras. T,he service on the Blue line of the Bir mingham Railway and Electric company continues to improve. Captain Weir and Officer Austin last night arrested H. F. Bennett on the charge of running a gaming table. A telephone alarm called the Are de partment to Sixth avenue and Twenty fourth streets about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The grass in the Twenty fourth street park caught on Are and was the cause of the alarm. Travel on the railroads yesterday was the lightest for some time. The number of people going to the exposition is gradually falling off, and this is one cause of the decrease in travel, and then people are staying at home and getting ready for the holidays. Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad checks are received by T. C. King, 2026 First avenue, at 90 cents on the dollar for shoes.

Chicago, Dec. 13.—The suspension last evening of J. F. Harris of the firm of Kennett. Hopkins & Co. from the priv ileges of the board of trade for two years left that house without that partner in good standing and this morning the messengers of the concern were refused admission to the floor. A new partner, S C. Scotten, was taken in with the view of continuing the business under the old name, but the action of the board in not permitting employes to enter the trading room effectually prevented the carrying out of this scheme. When the market opened F. K. Morrillae. manager for Kennett. Hopkins & Co., and who is a member of the board, appeared in the wheat pit and proceeded to trade in his own name, with the affix, "Successor to Kennett. Hopkins & Co.” Trndes were accepted in his name, and although it was understood that the business was for the account of the suspended firm there was nevertheless no ground for ob jection. The board of trade clearing house was still clearing yesterday’s bus iness for the late firm this morning, but after today its name will be dropped from the list. Attempt at Jail Breaking.
