AGAIN THE PRICES GO SAILING UP Wheat Made aSharp Advance and Was a Surprise to the Dealers/ A JUMP OF FIVE CENTS MADE SPECULATORS WILD. Telegrams From Chicago Indicate That the Clique Is Getting Ready to Do a Little More Manipulating in a Few Days. Twenty-eight thousand tons of wheat changed hands on the call board yester day on a rising market. The loss of Tuesday was almost recovered and every thing at the close indicated higher prices yet to-day. While foreign markets were weaker Chicago showed a sharp advance and San Francisco followed closely at the heels of the Windy City. The change in tone was much of a surprise to the bears, but the long-headed dealers expected it and made good profits on their recent sales. Wheat has had the call so far. but indications now are that corn will soon come in for a Scene at the Produce Exchange During the After Session of the Call Board. share of the excitement, as there is a strong bull feeling in it. Wheat closed weak at $1 sS}£ Tuesday night, and the bears were flattering them selves that they had the market all their way, but when the opening news came from the East yesterday morning there was a scary feeling and soon a stiff ad vance began which went forward without a reaction until the high point was reached at the close, and then on the curb the stiffness continued and prices again advanced to $1 63%, with a feeling all around that those who failed to get in would have to pay higher prices on the opening to-day. The trading all day was large and at times the pit looked as lf the traders had gone wild with excitement; Books were thrown across the room, hands were raised in wild gesticulation, voices reached the top pitch, while the hammer of the caller could scarcely be heard above the din. The weak long element that has been realizing for the past two days now discovered that they had been, caught napping and everybody seemed to be try ing to get more of the golden grain be fore it went to tbe top again. Telegrams came all day from Chicago indicating that the clique was in control and would bull prices away above former prices. San Francisco dealers are of a conservative nature and have little of the plunging disposition shown on the Chi cago hoard, and the result is that there is little or no danger that anybody will be caught very hard. The brokers have bo much straight commission business to do that they let the speculative field, se verely alone and attend to. the wants of their customers, while the latter element deal directly with their cash, being satis fied with small gains and quitting when they make small losses. ',<; One broker sized up the situation here pretty clearly when he said that wheat prices were pretty much a matter of sen timent. According to his belief the farm ers and outsiders got an idea that they could make large profits and would come in and speculate. This would cause a rise in prices until the flurry was over. Ac cording to his views present conditions had been duplicated many times in the past without the rapid increase in price and without the fluctuations that have marked the market for the past week or two. Cutter & Moseley were the heavy deal ers both yesterday and Tuesday. They sold tens of thousands of tons qf wheat Tuesday and broke the market, but yes terday they turned around and bought more than 10,000 tons, causing much of the sharp advance. Their action yester day was largely based upon the telegrams received from their Chicago agent. The first bull information came at 5:30 Tues day night in the following telegram : "I think the feeling has changed some what on corn. The late clique is supposed to have sold from five to six million bushels. With some probability of frost to-night corn will likely be higher to-mor row. Anyway December is not high at 30 cents. It looks this afternoon as though the September deal in wheat ls not over and it is likely the clique will bull the market to-morrow. I think the December and September bulls who unloaded in the neighborhood of a dollar will take hold again to-morrow and it is possible that some of to-day's decline will be recov ered." Yesterday morning at 8:30 the following came: "There is a strong undertone to every thing. The weak longs evidently liqui dated yesterday." At 10 came the following: "Foreigners are buying cash wheat in I New York." Then immediately followed the corn news, which indicated that that cereal will take a hand in the game. "Samples of trowing corn from Bush nell, 111., show very small berry and look like being nubbin) when husking comes. I think the yield will be very disappoint ing." Then, at 1:15 came the following, which gave the cue for the afternoon action : "French, the leader of the clique, tells me that September wheat will sell at $1 15 and December at $1 05 in ten days' time. It looks from to-day* c osing that all stuff will be higher to-morrow. The Consul- General at Frankfort. Germany, reports Russia's crop 70 percent of normal. Rou mania only half "i 'last year. Hungary 47,000,000 bushels less than last year. In dia has only 78,000,000 bushels, or 16,000,000 less than its own normal consumption." These telegrams all indicate that the prophecy of the leader of the clique is not far wrong in his estimates of what the market is going to do within the next ten days. Some very wild speculators talked of $1 50 wheat at Chicago, but this only elicited the same laugh that predictions of $1 wheat brought out a few months ago. - Andrew 8. Moseley of Cutter & Mose ley, : which firm seems to have led the market for the last two days, said last evening: , , "The break in the market was not un expected. It' was due to the reaction which was certain to come after such a steady advance. It was brought about by the weak longs, who desired, to realize when they had fair profits, and the talent, or old dealers, took , advantage of the slump and got in more wheat. When we come to look at the condition of the Eng lish markets and the freights it can read- ily be seen -that December- wheat is not too high. There is no inflation .to the prices. -It is worth every cent of the price it reached to-day. , _ "The conditions in San Francisco are not like those in Chicago. Here there is no headlong buying and selling and the trades,, which are very lar^e in the aggre gate, come from a large number of deal ers. The brokers are all so busy attend ing to their commission business that they have no time to speculate and the result is that a strictly legitimate business is be ing done. There ia no possibility of any heavy failures here as the speculative ele ment has no plungers." The general feeling on the curb last night was that this morning would wit ness some very exciting scenes, and there was quite a deal of covering along the line. Prices were very stiff and showed an advance over the close on the Call Board. Divorce* Granted.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, AUGUST 2tf, 1897. IN BEHALF OF CHRISTIANITY St. Charles Parish Fair Suc cessfully Inaugu rated. A Host of Visitors Listened to Speeches and Patronized Booths. A Reception Will Be Held This Evening Under . the Anspices of the Y. M. I. The fair for the benefit of St. Charles parish, under the direction of Fathers Cuniniings and O'Mann, assisted by the ladies of the church, was formally opened last evening by Father Yorke in the Mission Turn Verein Hall. The hall, which had been decorated for the oc casion, was filled to overflowing early in the evening. The address by Father Yorke was at tentively listened to, and immediately after its close the lady managers in the booths started the ball rolling. The fair, # which is to be opened for three weeks, will without doubt be a success. Father Yorke, among other things, said: "Wo gather here this evening to open the second fair for the benefit of St. Charles parish which has been held in the past ten years. Many people are preju diced concerning these fairs, but I am satis fied their minds would be changed if they could see this gathering here to-night. There is no reason for those who claim to have religion to wear long faces during life, for our work in the interest of the church and for the glory of God is some thing we should b-* proud of. • "Prosperity shines on our parish and we care not whether it comes from the frozen North or the sun- kissed valleys whence comes our precious wheat. We are working in a noble cause and a just reward awaits us." This evening a reception and entertain ment will be held under the auspices of the Young Men's Institute, Mrs. Morton, president. The following programme will be rendered: Vocal solo, Miss Etta Welch ; fancy dance, Vivia McNeil; recitation, Georgie Mclnnis. LONG DISTANCE KEOORDS.

NOT A SMIRCH ON "OLD GLORY" A Vast Movement to Pre vent the Desecration of the Flag. ■tfttftf'tftf'tf * - ■-.-;., * ' --■_*■*..'■ '-.:.:■ *.. * Often the National Emblem Has Been Treated With Scant Ceremony. Initial Steps Taken by the National Society, Sons of the American Eevolution. At the meeting of the Sons of the Amer ican Revolution, held last Saturday nigbt in Pioneer Hall, there was read a letter from Edward Hagman Hall, secretary of the National society, Sons of the Ameri can Revolution, requesting the co-opera tion of the San Francisco society in a movement by the National society to honor the American flag and prevent its desecration and calling attention to the following resolution that was adopted by the National society some time ago: Resolved, That this society appoint a perma nent committee of thirteen who shall, on be half of the society, have charge of the foster ing of public sentiment in lavor of honoring the flag oi our country and preserving it from desecration and initiating and forwarding legal -measures to prevent such desecration. That such committee shall join with and in vite to join with it other patriotic societies and committees of the same to co-operate in the aforesaid objects and ends. Tnat such committee have power to fill all vacancies, to fix its own quorum and make its own rules, and that such committee shall be known as the flag committee of this society. In the letter the writer asks for a full report of the efforts, if any. that the San Francisco society may have done in that line. He then writes: Many societies have already performed ex pensive, laborious and highly commendable work in this fleld, but the results have teen disproportionately meager. It is the purpose of this committee to mace a critical study of what has been attempted heretofore, what has been accomplished, what has failed and why it has failed, and by co-ordinating the action of our own societies of the Sons of the American Revolution with that of other great patriotic bodies not only make their efforts more fruitful, but also bring to greater frui. tion their past labors. The united committees representing the supreme and subordinate bodies of the Sons of the American Revolution, the Loyal Legion, the Founders and Patriots of America, etc., acting as a great conference committee on the protection of the flag, with headquar ters at New York, have inaugurated a cam paign which it is oelieved will receive irom th« President of the United States and otner influential citizens such active sympathy as will secure from Congress adequate legis lation. In accordance with the requeot the local society appointed the following commit tee to co-operate with the one of the Na tional society: Horace Davis, Columbus Bartlett, George C. Boardman, Mark Shel don, George W. Spencer, D. B. Mar wick, Colonel A. D. Cutler. Colonel S.I. Kellogg Jr. and Jndge A. P. Catiln of Sacramento. • The society will endeavor to secure tho co-operation of local patriotic societies in -.lie movement. I - In 1879 an effort was made to prevent ! the desecration of the American flag by ! placing advertisements upon it. On the 7th of January, 1880, a bill was introduced in Congress declaring it a crime to use the flag for advertising purposes, but it went no further than that. The following named were elected mem bers of the society: Oliver Hendrickson Simons, physician; Dr. Rawlins Cadwal lader; Rhodes Borden, Assistant City and County Attorney; Ralph Bell Kittredge, salesman; Warren Olney, lawyer; Walter Emerson Dennison; Henry Cowell, mer chant; James Nathaniel Rogers, horticul turist; Charles Cushing Beck, cashier; William Francis James, attorney-at-law; Henry Holden Wood, secretary; Edward English Chever. retired; John Walter Farkhurst, accountant; Edward Everett Perley, real estate; * Reginald Webster, Superintendent Common Schools; George Hiram Buckingham, real estate. The Sons of the American Revolution will on the 17th of September celebrate the one hundred and tenth anniversary of the completion, signing and presentation to the Colonial Congress of the constitu tion. --■■■-•- •-.

BILLY HENEY COMING BACK The Fee Clerk of the Treas urer's Office Arrested in Mexico. v Charged With Embezzling Funds of the City and County of San Francisco. Afterward .Released at £1 Paso on an Order From Chief of Police Lees. For some time past the office of City and County Treasurer W'.dber has been buzzing with rumors of a political scandal. These rumors assumed a concrete form when William .Heney, one of the depu ties, was dismissed by Treasurer Widber. The matter was kept secret, although the rumors hinted at an embezzlement of public moneys. The story went on to the effect that Heney had made good the amount of whatever shortage there might have been before he left the Treasurer's office. Then he went to the springs. Where the particular springs were be did not say. City officials were very reticent about the affair. Auditor Broderick, whose special duty it is to act as watch dog of the funds, was seen at his residence last night. In answer to direct questions he said that he had heard that Heney bad got into "trouble" in the Treasurer's office, but what that "trouble" was he did not know. In fact he did not inquire. He could not say whether or not the clerk's name was on the salary rolls, be cause he will not come into possession of them until to-morrow. Aft?r Heney left this City Chief of Po lice Lees was notified by Treasurer Wid ber that Heney's accounts were short. The Chief set the wires in motion and it was found that a man answering Heney's description, accompanied by a lady, had passed through Los Angeles on the way to El Paso. The Chief of Police at El Paso was im mediately wired to be on the look out for Heney and yesterday a dispatch was re ceived that "be had been arrested at Chihuahua, Mex., having passed through El Paso and had been brought back to the latter city. Tbe Treasurer was notified of the arrest and subsequently a dispatch was sent to El Paso to release Heney from custody and requesting him to return to the City. The lady who accompanied him was his wife and they left by the first train from El Paso on the return j lurney. ft was at first reported that Heney's shortage was about $3000, but it. was. sub sequently learned that it did not ex ceed $400. From the fact that Heney was arrested and subsequently released, it is supposed that the deficiency had been made good by Heney's friends. There was a desire to keep the matter quiet, and it was not till last night that it was definitely known that Heney had left the City. ■ -.* The following dispatch was received last night from The Call's special correspond ent at El Paso: . •'"--; 'EL PASO, Tex., Aug. 25.— W. J. Heney and wife, en route Lorn Chihuahua, Mexico, to Sau Francisco, registered at a hotel here to day. On August 3 Heney went through El l'aso en route to Chihuahua, and on August 4 the Chief of Police of San Francisco wired the El Paso police to arrest him. These instruc tions were carried out to-day. Heney stated that his trouble had been ad justed in San l-'rancibco, and that he was no longer wanted there. This proved to be the case, as a wire to the Chief of Police in San Franc sco was answered by a request to liber ate Heney, as he was on * his way home on his own recognizance. Heney would make no statement of his case. He simply said. that the charges against him were without founda tion. The charge against him is said to be em bezzlement in connection with the Treasury Department of-fran Francisco. He will con tinue to California to-day. it is said that Mrs. Heney has been the mediator between her husband and his difficulties. r *3GB§E EDITOR LAWRENCE HURT.

PLAINTS MADE BY SHIPPERS Several Charges of Dis crimination Filed Yesterday. Alleged Violation of the Lone and Short Haul Clause. An Admission by the Southern Pacific That Illegal Eates Had Existed. Several cases of alleged discrimination in rates were under consideration by the Railroad Commission yesterday. R. V. S. Quieley of Lakeport complained in a communication sent to the board that he had been charged $4 75 for 170 pounds of miscellaneous freight from Hopland to Vanderbilt, San Bernardino County, whereas some time previously he had shipped a barrel of apples weighing exactly the same to Blake, San Bernardino County, a distance thirty miles less, for $1 75. He added that he had asked for an explana tion in reference to this great difference, but had been unable to get a satisfactory one from the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad. The freight in question moves over the Southern Pacific for most of the distance between the points named. The secretary was instructed to write to the San Fran cisco and North Pacific asking for an explanation. Peterson Bros, of Vinton, Col., voiced the grievance of the people of his com munity against the Nevada, California and Oregon Railroad. He claimed that freight rates were 1% cents per 100 pounds greater from Sacramento to Vinton than from Sacramento to Beckwith, notwith standing that Vinton was eleven miles nearer to Sacramento. He charged that this was done in order to favor the town of Chat. As tbe Railroad Commissioners have no means of learning whether it was the Ne vada, California and Oregon or the Sierra Valley Railway, the secretary was in structed to communicate with both of these companies and ascertain all the facts in the matter.. At the last meeting of the board it was decided that '.he Southern Pacific Com pany should have its attention called to a charge of discrimination made against it to the effect that rates from San Francisco are higher to Mojave than to Lancaster, despite the fact that Lancaster is twenty five miles more distant. A communica tion was received from C. H. Smurr of the Southern Pacific yesterday admitting that such discrimination had existed and add ing that instructions have now been given that in no instance shall higher rates be charged, from San Francisco to Mojave than from San Francisco to Lancaster. The new schedule of freight rates issued by the Alameda and San Joaquin .Rail road, popularly known as the Corral Hol low line, was approved by the commission. It gives the rates in cents per 100 pounds and per 1000 feet on lumber, and is as fol lows: '^• i :i< y i '-' *.' v>;' Betwekn Stock- ton AND SEKGEAXT. S o.

Sad Fate of a Young Alan Who Was Formerly a Preacher. Kenneth Duncan, at one time a preacher in this City, was declared insane yester day, and was committed to the State Asy lum at Agnews by Judge Hebbard. Charle* Montgomery was the complain ing witness. He testified that Duncan is sometimes seized with an irresistible im pulse to take things not hie owe, and that sometimes he would return the purloined articles and with tears in his eyes confess his guilt. * rtf-^SSSBS^ For several months Duncan has Been greatly depressed. He has frequently ex pressed a determination to commit sui cide by jumping into the bay. In view of the circumstances the friends of the unfortunate man thoncht it best to have him placed in some institution where he could be restrained until he recovers. Broderick Signs the Warrants. In spite of the veto of the Mayor, Auditor Broderick has begun signing the bills for public printing that were rejected by tbe chief executive of tho City government several days ago. Mr. Broderick thinks that Mayor Phelan has exercised the right of veto under a mis taken Impression. He holds that the section of the consolidation act on which the Mayor bases his veto does not refer to stationery, printing nor items of that kind, but to build ing and official printing contracts, which are always let by bids. Stationery and printed blanks can b." obtained by committees at any time, without advertising for bids on a sworn statement from the head of any department that the supplies are necessary for the proper conduct 01 the business of the office.
