How the Market For Americans
fs Working.
THE COMBINE IN COPPER
Is Thought to ba Engineered on the
American Side—Faure's Death
I a 1 no Effect.
Now York, Fob. 20.—The Times' Lon
don financial correspondent cables:
' Our money market is now quite happy.
Kates are not high. whether for loans or !
discounts, but they arc hardening and
revenue collecting at last is beginning to
Tell upon supplies and banking credit.
I hat. however, is nothing more than 1
usual and is nothing to be disturbed, j
Vi hat rather startled us was the extent i
tock exchange dealings disclosed first, 1
by last week's borrowings at the bank. :
still more emphatically by the bankers
clearing house daily returns published '
Thursday of each week. These latter ]
show the stock exchange payday over- '
turn of the money exceeded the corre- 1
spending day last year by £26,000,000 and i
aggregated CS2.210.000. the highest one;
day s total ever known. A continuance i
of speculation on the scale of these figures j
simply would mean for each settlement
from now until April increased demands !
on the Bank of England, because the open j
market is growing poorer and such a gen- !
eral scramble for pecuniary assistance j
v, ü u 1 d ensue as might cause nuire than J
one bad upset. For this reason alone, I
markets would have been more disposed I
to inspire caution all this week.
"Borrowings at the bank were so un- j
picasantly heavy on the 10th that dread
haunts us lest it should be worse still on
the 24th, which is the next pay day. Spec
ulation, however, has further checked and
prices set back by the liquidation of some i
unwieldy accounts of operations in this
market. This has been successfully ac- i
complished with wonderfully little dis
turbance anywhere and good investment
business is still quietly going on.
"I find no change in the temper of the
public, which remains bullish. Attention
is still being directed to mine shares more
than to your securities but this is not to
be WQndered at since business has been
so restricted with you. But the desire to
sell American railroads has become so
less pronounced and an untoward event
of politics or a sudden wrench of money >
rates can alone stille the growing dis
position to buy.
"About politics, I cannot speak further,
than to say that the ticklish position of
France has not yet affected men's hope
fulness, either in the London or Paris, if
we may judge by the way prices are kept
up not only for all classes of mine shares,
but for securities the Spanish 4s which
have risen to 55 on what grounds no
mortal can say except that those most
interested in them must sustain the mar
ket. Promises are held out for financial
reforms and new taxes and so on. and
the most is being made of the $20,090,600
you are to hand the Spanish government
but old Spain does not change habits
lightly, it is her open ministers and the
fortes who impose what taxation they
please and equally open patriotic Span
iards who as usual refuse to pay or bribe
collectors to take half or a quarter of the
sum leviable.
"The finances of all so-called Latin na
tions are falling more and more into a
state of disorder which constitutes a
peril not to be ignored by our
money
market or yours even in the most opti
mistic mood. - Yet their credit is man
aged with consummate skill. President
Faure's death might have been expected
j to produce aVilîarp fall on the bourse. It
did at first sh*j\y ..this tendency but more
I from precaution 'than actual selling.
Paris attempted to sell more, but met no
I response from buyers and immediately
desisted. Business momentarily in sus
j pense, has now been resumed with mar
; kets strong and I do not think the situa
■ tion will likely be much changed by the
• election of the new president. Paris is
overloaded, not only with Spanish, hut
j with Portuguese and Italian bonds, but
i puts a bold front on the situation and
plays the game with a strong hand,
j Loubet's election, therefore, presages
j more active dealings.
I ''Markets for copper and tin are more
1 affected than is the market for stocks.
The copper gamble is alleged to be con
trolled from your side, but dealings here
are large, as shown by the overturn of
nearly 8,000,000 tons this week against the
i consumption of less than 1,000 tons.
European producers arc accused of hold
ing back supplies for higher prices but
supplies, nevertheless, are nearly equal
to the demand. I think speculation is not
yet at its height hut it is within a nar
row ran*
breaks."

Mr. Hitchcock in an interview today,

j wrong impression regarding the czar's
j so-called disarmament proposal, made to
] the powers of the world. "This proposi
tion," said he, "is not for a disarmament,

which are constantly being brought for- j
ward, to bring them up to t hat of each j
other, could be much better utilized for .
the benefit of the countries affected. The 1
suggestion for a conference has met with
approval and I think most of the nations
of the world will he represented at the ,
conference to he held at The Hague very
soon to consider the czar's proposal.' ' j
Mr. Hitchcock was averse to discussing
for publication European politics, but he ;
said .in answer to questions, that the ac- 1
complishments of this country in raising :
an army from 25,000 to 260,000 men during :
the Spanish war challenged their admira- !
tion and astounded and amazed the na- :
tiens of the world. It had increased the ;
admiration for the Hag and, lie added,
"the American flag never flew higher in
Europe than it flies tonight.' Russia, he
said, was friendly to America and during :
the late war maintained an attitude of ;
strict neutrality.
WRECK PHYSICALLY
AND MENTALLY
j Easton. Pa., Feb. 20.—The trial of Pro
fessor George H. Stephens, charged with
burning Pardee hall, Lafayette college,
reached a climax today when coun
Sl '1 for the defense introduced as evidence
i a confession made by the prisoner the
da >' aftcr ,lis arrest - The Paper is a re
i markable piece of work and dramatic in

the extreme. Stephens admits all the
charges under which he is indicted, but
lays the blame of his downfall and his
present predicament at the door of Pres
ident Warfield. He claims that lie was
inveigled into signing a paper by the
college president that iater turned out to
be an
faculty. Warfield is severely scored and
condemned, and he is held responsible for
t ho physical and mental condition of
Professor Evans, who is now in an in
sane asylum. Stephens declares, that
Evans was induced to return from Rome
on the promise of a position from War
field, who at the last moment refused to
keep his agreement. Stephens was much
affected during the reading of his con
fession. At times he would weep bit
terly and laugh hysterically. Dr. War
field sa.t near the prisoner during the ses

SHERIFF SUED FOR
HEAVY DAMAGES
is
of
Tndla.naipolis, Ind., Feb. 20.—John XV.
Tyler of Hamilton county, 111., father of
Marion Tyler, lynched at Scottsburg last
December, this afternoon brought suit
in the federal court here against Sheriff
Gobin of Scott county, and his bondsmen,
claiming $5.000 damages.
The complaint avers that it was
duty of the sheriff to protect Tyler, and
that the sheiiff not only did not have
enough guards to protect his prisoner, blit
he yielded to the demand to open the
door and surrender his keys, and that
he also gave the leaders of the mob a
lamp, that they might more readily find
their way to the cell occupied by the
prisoner.
It is also alleged that he made no effort
to cut down the prisoner after he had
been suspended, by which his life miaht
have been saved. Tlie attorneys for Mr.
Tyler, among whom is numbered ex-At
torney General Miller, assert that a large
number of witnesses will be called, and
that they expect to disclose the identity
of the men who assisted In lynching
Marion Tyler. It Is tlie first suit of the
kind ever brought in Indiana.

Spokane, Wash., Feb. 19.—The Great
Northern eastbound flyer was wrecked
at 5 o'clock this morning near Wilson
creek, between this city and Wenatchie.
The tiain was running 35 miles an hour,
making up lost time, and the accident is
attributed to the spreading of tire rails.
The engine turned completely over, and
some of tlie passenger cars were piled up
in confusion. Engineer Sam Work's right
kg was broken and he suffered other
wise. Harry Jones, the fireman, is re
ported to have been slightly scalded. Ex
press Messenger Kline Felter was badly
injured.
A dispatch was sent to Leavenworth
and the wrecking train was sent to the
scene. A coach bearing two physicians
was also sent to attend the injured and
take them to the hospital. It is reported
that three coaches were burned after the
accident.
The engine was poundaing away at the
west of
Wilson creek when suddenly and without
warning it jumped the track and ran
for a distance of about 300 feet along the
ties, whicli were torn to flinders. Then
the locomotive turned her nose to one
side and would have rushed wide of the
track had it not been for a small bluff.
Striking the bluff, the engine turned over
on one side, with the fireman and engi
neer pinned in the cab. The mail car and
tlie baggage car which came next to the
tender were thrown sidewise across the
track. Following the express car came |
the smoker, and the force of the shock I
broke it completely loose from the rest I
of the train and sent it rolling down tlie
embankment, 20 feet below. All of the
other cars were thrown from the track
with the exception of the last Pullmaijf,
which kept to tlie rails.
The noise of the crash was frightful
and for a few minutes the confusion
among the passengers was so general
that it was almost impossible to learn the
j extent of the casualties. Meanwhile fire
had broken out from the engine and the
mail car was in flames. Frank Mon
tague, the mail clerk, had been somewhat
bruised in tlie leg, but lie was not at all !
deterred from the work of resuing the
mail. Before the fire had driven him
back he and the passengers had gotten
nearly all of tlie mail to a place of
safety.

Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 20.—Mrs. Cas
sius E. Wright, a young married woman,
whose husband is a dairyman, living in
the extreme outskirts of the city, early
this morning, after Mr. Wright had start
ed on his rounds, while passing between
the stable and the house, was seized by
a stranger, who evidently contemplated
a criminal assault. Mrs. Wright made
an energetic and effective resistance, at
j the same time screaming for help. An
tho j gored by her struggles, the stranger used
his knife, striking at her throat, but tlie
blade was deflected and cut a gash ex
tending almost from ear to ear across
her face and nose. Owing to tlie dirk
mss tlie woman failed to identify lier as
sailant, who escaped arrest. Mrs. Wright
is frightfully scarred, but will recover.
GRUESOME PRODUCTION.
The latest morbid "entertainment" was
a phonograph party recently given to a
select few of the anointed of Mammon.
A very wealthy gentleman had secured
a. number of phonograms, which, accom
panying many creepy photographs, al
lowed tlie ladies and gentlemen present
to hear the din of battle and the shriek9
and groans and awful oaths of tlie
wounded and dying before Santiago.
They are said to have been most horribly
realistic, and some of the "fortunate"
guests are shuddering yet.
