The past ten days in Chicago have
constituted a heated term, its intensity be
ing almost unprecedented in the history
of the city. The thermometer has rarely
dropped below seventy-five degrees, and
has risen to ninety degrees. A peculiarity
of the season has been the fact that the
nights have afforded a sultriness continu
ing very evenly through the full twenty
four hours . At 7 o'clock Tuesday morn
in the thermometer registered 82.
Seven thousand men were in line Mon
day night in parade in honor of Governor
Cleveland. The procession was two
hours in passing the reviewing stand. Af

the Governor was presented with a banner
bearing his portrait. The head was en
circled by four stars, typifying "Sobrie
tv." "Justice," "Honesty" and "Reform."
Behind the hills was the sun just risiog
and labeled "Victory." After a general
handshaking the Governor retired for the
Operating in Corn.
Chicago, September 8. —The life of the
speculative markets on exciiange is at
present centred in the corn pit. For
weeks it has been freely stated that the
September option was "coopered," that
all the spot stuff was in the hands of one
or two powerful traders and that at the
proper time the screws would certainly
be turned on: yet the big bears did not
scare. They argued that prices were
already far above their level with reference
to other articles, that farmers' bins were
overflowing with last year's grain and that
the new crop was likely to be enormous.
Hence Nat Jones, Cantner, Bloom Bod
man and Charlie Schwartz, with their
followings, sold early and late, while such
operators as Baker, Sherwin and Dows
quietly put away all offerings at the same
time taking good care that only a very
small amount of the current receipts—for
which, by the way, there has all along
been a splendid shipping demand even at
a premium over the option—remained in
Chicago. Now this enormous short inter
est is beginning to be badly shaken up
by the rapid falling off in the number of
cars coming in. In anticipation of a very
large yield they have not alone discount
ed a future not yet revealed but have con
tracted to deliver property at a time when
the next crop, whatever its size, can be of
no possible aid to them. Receivers say,
that attracted by the fine figures which
the cereal lias maintained for the past few
w'eeks, the country has already marketed
all the grain that could possibly be scraped
"Farmers have not enough left
to feed the boys on," said J. W.
Bliss this morning. The whole of the
next two crops, however, would not be
sufficient to fill the September and Oct
'Will the deal be likely to extend in to
'Of course it will. 'Old Hutch' has
got the 'boys' just as securely as Armour
had the sellers of pork. There is noth
ing left for them to do but settle."
Wheat is quiet, although the general
feeling appears to be improving. The
opinion is gaining ground among traders
that perhaps this year's crop is not such a
tremendous one after all. The threshing
machine has so far produced nothing like
the results anticipated, w T hile the inspec
tion report here shows that scarcely 20
percent of the receipts àre grading No. 2
or better. There are, however, in the
market at the present time, a large num
ber of little fellows wiio are "long."
On the slightest upturn they are eager to
realize, thus preventing any important
bugle, and the bears declare that after
the close of navigation they w ill be able
to mark quotations down in short order.
Provisions are tame. A number of
traders arc loading up with lard and ribs,
in the hope that the lack of corn iu the
country will cause the hogs to come to
market in such bad condition that a boom
will be inaugurated iu those articles; but
if poor hogs were all that were needed
this result would have occurred some time
ago, as for weeks a large proportion of
the animals arriving have been sent back
to feeders in the countrv.
Heavy Storm at St. Paul.
A dispatch dated at St. Paul on the 9th
says : Heavy rain and thunder storms pre
vailed in this vicinity since 4 o' clock this
afternoon, and at this writing, midnight,
rain is falling in blinding sheets. Trains
on all the roads centering here are delayed
by washouts. No reports received yet of
damage by wind or lightning, but it is
feared from the character of the storm
here that damage has been done west of
A later report says: It is reported here
that the storm last night caused the most
disastrous washout ever known on the
Omaha road, near Eau Claire. Trains of
that road are compelled to run into this
city over the Milwaukee road via Camp

If to be monotonous is to be gifted;
if to be one good actor in a group is to
be representative; if to walk a chalk
line is to go upward ; if to present one
repertoire in one- way for twenty-five
years and to get the same unvarying
eulogium^ for its success—then Mr.
Booth, no less than Joe Jefferson, de
serves well of fame, and need bother no
more about what other people do.
