Has Figured for Six Performances Eeginning Thursday, July 12 Matinees on Saturday and Sunday Gets 700 for the Engagement, Topajna Bros., who run a grocery at 405 Schrage avenue, reported to the Whiting police this morning that two valuable horses and a new har ness had disappeared from their stables near the store during the night. About the same time Roman Lzudzinski rushed into the station and asked the police to locate a fiat delivery wagon which had disappear ed from his stables. The latter man ages a grocery and market at the corner of New York , avenue and 122nd street, and he gave the police the information that his neighbor, R. Blasrczyk has seen two men hitch ing a horse to the wagon at 3 o'clock this morning. They drove away, leading the oth er animal. They were traced as far as the corner of Indiana boulevard and Davidson avenue, but nothing could'1 be learned of their movements after leaving that point. John Top ajana went to the stockyards in Chi cago this afternoon, thinking that the thieves may have gone there to dispose of the horses. Late this af ternoon Chief Clay Collins went to Hegewisch to see if he could find any trace of the stolen property or the thieves. In the case of Mrs. Florence Baker vs. The Indiana Harbor railroad and A. Dnsran. n brakemnn in tIip pn- pioy oi tne road, came up oelore Justice Jones this morning. Mrs Drake alleges that Dugan owes lie r boxing exhibitions at the Grand Vau deville theatre, during his stay here. Aianager ti. urooks nas made a deal with the Hegewisch fighter by which the above engagement ' will be filled and for which Batling is to receive $700.00 as his share of the proceeds. When it is known that the least Nelson has ever received for an en gagement of a week has been $1,250 it 'will be seen " that he has made quite a concession to the vaudeville manager in order to give his old friends a chance to see him in act ion. And the town is expected to turn out. The show is to be advertised far and wide and it is expected that there will be crowds daily from Chi cago, South Chicago, Indiana Har bor, Whiting, East Chicago and other surrounding towns in the county. Batling Nelson will spar with Joe Galligon his sparring partner fo: tnree rounds every, time ne appears and the chance to see the shifty light weight go to it will be eagerly seized by every follower of the game in the city. Nelson had an engagement of three weeks at the Trocadero in Chi cago and this is said to be the long est engagement a tighter nas ever had at one theatre so it may be seen that Manager Brooks is exceedingly fortunate -in securing the Dane for six nights in Hammond. Brooks says he is going to give the people a gool show this week or "bust" and so he has arranged an exceptionally fine program for the week. The prices will be 75c and 50c for the main f.oor and 35c for the bal cony. repudiate the -policy of the manage-ment-pursued-hy President Grey and the mooted scheme of reorganization does not comprehend theeontinuance of the present president in office. The local stockholders would like to have it understood that in his de sire to make a good showing Mr. Grey "over-played himself," accept ing business of any kind that was of fered him. As one of them put it this morning, tne company was being over loaded witn ruboisn turned down by more conservative compan ies." HEW YORK STOCK MARKET. Closing: Description. Open High. Low.

Wheat was dull and lower again this morning. Liver pool early prices were one-quarter to one-half higher, lower for wheat, weather in the northwest favorable for growing crops, receipts of wheat in the winter wheat markets increas ing and liberal selling by commission houses were the principal causes of the depression. September closed at a decline of one-half cent and at about the lowest price of the day. July was correspondingly weak. Corn. Market for corn followed closely in the path of wheat, declin ing five-eighth for September and about the same for December.
