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.

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.
Bozio. and Curtis Will Try for the
Twenty and Forty Mile,
Records.
E. A. Bozio of . the Imperial Cycling
Club has determined to make his attempt
against Kraft's twenty-mile road record
next Sunday, and has about completed
arrangements for proper pacing. There
will be two Acme Club tandem teams, one
from the Reliance, one from the Cali
fornias and one from the Olympics, be
sides an Olympic triplet team. To this
will be added all the available material In
the Imperial Club. Bozto firmly declares
that all he needs is fast enough pacing to
bring down the record fully a minute.
But Kraft is fully ascertain that Bozio
won't come within two minutes of equal
ing it.
Arrangements are being made to bring
these two combatants for long-distance
honors together on som e track, at a meet
to be promoted, by the Bay Citys and
Imperials. It would be one of -the best
attractions ever shown here.
M. G. Curtis of Alameda will try for the
Fruitvale-San Jose record next Sun
day. The distance is about forty-three
miles, and . the record of O. L. Pickard
made June 10, 1894, still stands.
Chance Acquaintance Cyclers will have a
rnn to Bear, Valley next Sunday. They
will take the Ba. m. Sausalito boat, di
embarking lor two specially reserved
coaches to Point Reyes, the round trip be
ing $1. At Point Reyes the , wheeling
will commence, and coaches will be pro
vided for those without wheels. Olema,
the lish hatchery and Country Club will
all be visited. '
Tbe club invites its friends to enjoy this
run with the members. It is said to be a
nice trip for a novice. .. -'Bring your own
lunch" is the en joinder, this being deemed
better than trusting to that which might
be obtained at stopping places. Tickets
can be had of members at the ferry the
morning of departure. Over thirty ladies
and gentlemen attended the club's twenty
mile ride to San M.iteo a fortnight ago. •"*"'

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

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

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>;'

KENNETH DUNCAN INSANE.
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.
