Established 1330. Incoupohated 18-3 V ( J. H. LsTILL, President I LONDON’S MW LORD MAYOR, Lord Roseberry Speaks on the’ Political Situation. The British Government’s Proofs of Its Friendship for Japan Pointed Out. j The Relations With Russia Described as Host Cordial—An Allusion to Rus sia and the Dead Czar. London, Nov. 9.—The crowds to-day which witnessed the procession which formed part of the installation of the new lord mayor, Alderman Sir Joseph Rrnals, were small, the decorations taw dry and the procession itself far from com paring with those of some years back. The day was mild and showery. The most notable feature of the lord mayor’s banquet at the Guild hail to-night was the prime minister’s speech on the political situation at home and abroad. The British government had given strong and tangible proof of its friendship for Japan by concluding, the recent compre hensive treaty, while Lord Roseberry said, it had also shown its benevolent neu trality by attempting to promote peace between the two warring powers. In this delicate and difficult business the govern ment had gone hand in hand with Russia and other interested powers. Although the sky was not clear, the government would let slip no opportunity to settle the war. Great Britain's relations to Russia were most cordial, the difficulty as to spheres of influence in Asia having been terminated. If all the European countries concerned could only proceed cordially and without suspicion in Asiatic affairs, a great step would be taken to secure the peace of the world. But recently the civilized world had be wailed the assassination of the president of a country with whom England ought to stand shoulder to shoulder in the gen erous commercial rivalry. Now she had to regret the death of a great emperor, the master of peace. The young head on which had fallen the terrible responsibility of the Russian crown might prove not unequal to the task. After paying high compliments to the wisdom and moderation of Alexander 111, Lord Roseberry spoke of his services in preserving the peace of Europe. Few persens realized, he said, the difficulty of keeping a good understanding among the nations. There was also danger in the mighty engine of the press, which often spoke under the influence of fierce com petition, and without weighing the effects of its announcements. He must ask the press to sift its news carefully before pub lishing it. • The foreign policy of England was strict ly conservative and had nothing to do with party. The government wished things To remain as they were. It coveted nothing abroad. It was not worth Eng land's while, with interests all over the world, to disturb the existing conditions. GOTHAM’S COMMITTEE OF LXX. Suitable Resolutions to Be Presented to Dr. Parkhurst. New York, Nov. 9.—The committee of seventy held its first meeting since the election in the Chamber of Commerce this afternoon and the occasion was one of general Jubilation over Tuesday's big victory. Resolutions were unanimously adopted that the organization of the committee be continued for the present to co-operate with the city officers nominated by it in securing to the city of New York an hon est. efficient, economical and non-parti san government; to secure the removal and punishment of such persons holding municipal offices as have been unfaith ful and inefficient in the performance of Hie duties cast upon them by the law; to frame and procure the enactment of such laws as may be found necessary to the better government of the city, and to take such other and further action as may, from time to time, be deemed con ducive to the best interest of the city and its inhabitants. A committee was appointed to frame some suitable resolutions and present them to Dr. Parkhurst. It was also de cided to arrange for a public demonstra tion in honor of the doctor. William Travers Jerome has been retained by the committee to punish all violators of the election laws “high or low, rich or poor.” A resolution endorsing the police for their faithful services on election day was Introduced and created considerable bal feeling, many of the members strongly opposing it on ground that the policemen were paid to do their duty, and the committee "ought not gush over the good act of a day.” Without disposing of the resolution, the committee adjourned. CONTESTS IN VIRGINIA. Republican Congressional Candidates Charge Fraud. Richmond, Va., Nov. 9.—Ex-Congress man Edmund Waddill, who is the ac knowledged republican leader in this dis- Dict, sa i(j ts-day he thought that Lor lr>nd, rep., would contest the election of Tyler, dem., In the Second district, and that Thorpe, rep., would contest the elec tion ef McKenney, dem., In the Fourth district. He had already been consulted counsel with reference to making these contests. He said the contests, if made, t'ould be on the ground f all sorts of f tauds. CONNECTICUT’S LEGISLATURE.

Austin, Tex., Nov. 9.—The following is a correct estimate of the vote and winners in the congressional districts of Texas: First District—Hutchison, dem., G. 357; Burroughs, pop., 2,122; Dunn, rep., 92. Second District—Cooper, dem., 13,085; Calhoun, pop., 10,557. Third—Yoakum, dem., 12,904; Perdue, pop., 11,193. Fourth—Culberson, dem., 12,555; Davis, pop., 10,272; Sanderson, rep., 665, Fifth-Bailey, dem.. 16,270; Farmer, pop., 1,361; Broader, pop., 1,482. Sixth—Abbott, dem., 18,925; James, rep., 376; Kearby, pop., 18,708. Seventh—Pendleton, dem., 15,794; Bar ber, pop., 15,939. Eighth—Bell, dem., 19,923; Jenkins, pop., 15,548. Ninth—Sayers, dem., 16,000; Hutchison, pop., 13,512. Tenth—Crowley, dem., 12,917; Rosen thal, rep., 10,814; Mcßride, pop., 6,995. Eleventh—Crain, dem., 7,282; Weldon, pop., 6,416. Twelfth—Hoiston, dem., 7,240; Noonan, rep., 7,951; Sales, pop., 1,980. Thirteenth—Cockrill, dem., 9,642; Gilli land, pop., 9,408; Kenyon, rep., 842; Dean, dem., 4,201. Charles A. Culberson’s plurality as head of the democratic ticket is placed at 50,000 by Chairman Dudley of tha executive committee. Dallas, Tex., Nov. 9.-11 p. m.— Not more than one-third of the vote of the state has been reported officially, but enough is known to predict the success of Culberson, dem., for governor, by about 40,000 plu rality. He runs 10,000 to 15,000 behind the balance of the state ticket. The dem ocrats certainly elect congressmen In eight of the thirteen districts, namely: First, Hutchison. 4,000 plurality; Second, Cooper, 3,000; Third, Yoakum, 1,500: Fourth, Culberson, 2,000; Fifth, Bailey, 8,000; Ninth, Sayers, 1,500; Tenth, Crowley, 1,000; Eleventh, Crain, 1,000. In the Twelfth district, Noonan, rep., has from 1,500 to 2,000 plurality. In the Thirteenth, Gilliland, pop., is probably elected. He is leading by nearly 1,000 votes and the democratic strong holds have been mostly heard from. In the Sixth district the official count will be necessary to determine between Abbott, dem., and Kearby, pop. The same is true of Pendleton, dem., and Barber, pop., in the Seventh, and Bell, dem., and Jenkinks, pop., in the Eighth. The chances slightly favor the democrats in all three districts. CAMERON FOR PRESIDENT. He May Head the Ticket of a Silverite- Protection Party. Denver, Col., Nov. 9.—The sliver men of Colorado and other mining states are ma turing plans, it is said, for launching a "silver party.” They will co-operate with the bi-metallists of the south and east, and a call will soon be issued for a meeting to effect an organization. "I do not care to have my name used,” said a prominent mining man to-day, "but I have correspondence fro-m Sena tor Cameron and Congressman Sibley of Pennsylvania, several Ohio congress men, Senators Jones and Stewart of Ne vada, and many others, all urging us to form a silver party. We have no hope from the successful party in congress.” “Do you think Senator Cameron would run as an Independent silver candidate against the Republican party?” "1 feel confident he would head our ticket with pleasure. He wants In the platform only sliver and protection. We all believe that such a party will be the principal opponent in 1896 to the republi can, unless the democratic party during the short session should pass a free coin age bill.” George J. Merrick, president of the Col orado Silver League, says plans for the organization of the new party are well advanced, but are not yet ready for pub lication. “The trans-Mississippi congress meets in St. Louis on Nov. 27,” said Mr. Merrick. "We had thought of calling our initial meeting there and at that time, but it has not gone further. A few days more will decide the question.” BYNUM AND THE BRIBES. Very Little Importance Attached to the Story at Indianapolis. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 9.—Very little importance is attached te the statement by Congressman Bynum te the effect that he could have been elected had he been willing to accept bribes for offices which would be tilled on his recommendatlen. Outside of the postofflee In this city and Anderson there were no valuable federal places at his disposal, for Senators Voor hees and Turple had as much to do with the larger federal places as did Mr. By num, the marshalship, collectorship, pen sion agency and other good places being filled not by the congressmen, but upon the recommendation of the senators. Mr. Bynum's statement that he was offered $5,000 if he could recommend a certain man for the position is not credited by democrats. He is very sore over his de feat, and is attributing it to disappointed place hunters, when in faet, that class had less to do with it than any other. MISSOURI’S CONGRESSMEN.

SAVANNAH, GA„ SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1804. TAIK OF A NEW BOND ISSUE. Sail Street Looking lot $50,000,000 to SIOIOOO,OOO. A Banker Says President Cleveland and Secretary of the Treasury Car lisle Are Determined to Keep Up the Gold Reserve On the Other Hand Washington Gossip Put the New Yorkers in the Position of Wanting the Bonds for Investment Purposes and Secretary Carlisle as Determined Not to Issue Them if It Can Be Avoided. New' York, Nov. 9.—lt was stated on Wall street to-day that there will be an issue of 850,000,000 or 8100,000,000 govern ment 5 per cent, bonds before congress again reassembles. When the last Issue of 850,000,000 was made and the public declined to take the bonds, a syndicate of bankers headed by John A. Stevens, president of the United States Trust Company, and Edward King, president of the Union Trust Company, made the sale. A banker who was actively Interested In that movement makes the following state ment; "There will be an issue of bonds shortly. The President and the Secretary of the Treasury have determined that the gold reserve shall not be further im paired. They have been advised that an export movement of gold will begin In a few w'eeks. and they accordingly have de termined to take prompt measures.” When asked whether a syndicate would be formed which would be guaranteed a commission to float the bonds, he replied: “I do not know-. That lies In the discre tion of the authorities In Washington. This much is certain—the 5 per cent, bonds will be issued probably upon the 3 per cent, basis, as before. They will be offered the public, but the same gentle men who made the last issue a success have assured the President that they will carry through the forthcoming Issue.” The banker added that If $50,000,900 bonds was insufficient, $50,008,000 more would be issued. Washington, Nov. 9.—Treasury officials have been aware for some days of an agi tation in New York financial circles in favor of anew bond issue. It has not es caped their notice that the financial papers that voice Wall street sentiment dally call attention to the treasury gold reserve and suggest that it should be built up to strengthen public confidence in the treasu ry’s condition. Letters, too, have been sent to Secretary Carlisle by financiers, all having the same end in view. The surplus money in the New- York banks is very great and treasury officials here, who watch the course of money matters do not hesitate to express the opinion that the solicitude expressed by Wall street mag nates for the treasury is not entirely un selfish, but that anew bond issue is desired by Wall street simply as a means of pro viding an investment for their surplus and accumulating funds. Intimations of gold exports to force the treasury to issue bonds, have reached here through broker sources and others who keep in close touch with New York financiers. That they can do this by presenting United States notes for gold and thus reducing the gold reserve is only too true, as proved by past transactions of the kind. The opinion, however, is expressed in treasury circles that Secretary Carlisle wdll permit the gold reserve to reach a much lower point than it now is, $61,000,000, before he will feel Justified, in the present good con dition of the treasury, In making another issue of United States bonds. OLNEY MAY RESIGN. The Drudgery of the Attorney General ship Distasteful to Him. Washington, Nov. 9.—Attorney General Olney, in conversation with friends dur ing the past few months, has expressed himself as anxious te return to private life, stating that the drudgery and re sponsibilities of his position is wearing on him. His private law praetiee, It is said, is even now worth from $30,000 to $40,000 a year, and would be largely increased If he was free from official trammels. It is also asserted that Mr. Olney, when he accepted the offlen ef attorney general, which he did with reluctance, made It conditional that he might resign before the expiration of his term if he found the duties distasteful. That time, it is said, is near an end. Mr. Olney’s relations with the President are close, and his intimate friends believe that he has remained in the cabinet thus far at the President’s solicitation. In the event of Attorney General Olney tending his resignation, the possibility is suggested that William L. Wilson might be tendered a seat In the cabinet. This, however, is a matter upon which no intimation has been had, di rectly or indirectly, from the President. A CHEMIST GIVEN AN OFFICE. Dr. W. G Brown Now in the Department of Agriculture. Washington, Nev. 9.—Secretary Morten has appointed Dr. W. G. Brown, profes sor ef chemistry in Washlngten and Lee University, Lextngtsn, Va., first assistant chemist ef the division of chemistry, de partment of agriculture, vice Dr. G. L. Speneer, resigned.

One Citizen Killed and Another Wounded During the Escape. Cofteyville, Kan , Nov. 9 —Two of the Cook gang plundered the tewn of Lena pah., I. TANARUS., and left a bloody trail behind them this afternecn.They entered the town in their character of bold bandits, with out any attempt at concealment, and ter rorized the citizens until they had car ried out their plans of robbery. E. E. Melton, a brave young man, who attempted to stop them with his gun when they were riding away, was shot and in stantly killed. Another man, whose name cannot be learned to-night, is reported to have been seriously wounded. Both of tho victims were with a small force of eiti sens who hastily armed themselves and attempted to prevent the escape of the bandits. The robbers were mounted on fast horses and were heavily armed. Some of the citizens claim to have recognized them as Cherokee Bill and Jim French, well known lieutenants of Bill Cook, the leader of the gang. The robbers held tip the proprietors of two stores and looted both places. They also robbed the postoffice. John Shufelt, the proprietor of one store, was relieved of SIOO In money and a gold watch. These articles were taken from his person. Mr. Shufelt proclaimed his loss to the town before the robbers had finished their work, and the band of citizens were almost between them and their horses when the robbers went to mount. An effort was made to stop them, but they were on horseback, with drawn pistols and flying before their would-be captors could make a concentrated move. Melton was more rash than the others, and met his death in consequence. The news, as It reaches this city, does not state in what man ner, or how seriously the second victim w'as hurt. A report says the robbers are headed for Cofteyville, which is only fifteen miles from Lenapah. This place is the scene of many tragic robberies, and the police department, with many volunteers, are prepared to meet them in the same way they met the Daltons two years ago, when almost the entire band was wiped out.

The contractors are Henry Keefer of this city, and Henry S. Hailwood of Columbus, O. The employes were jus* going to work, rrobably 100 men were in and around the ditch on First street. Some of them had built a fire in the bank, and were thawing out a fifty-pound box of dynamite. There was a thunderous crash, and the entire city was shaken. Keefer, Hartman and Flynn were nearest the fire. Hartman was literally torn to pieces. His body was lifted in the air 300 feet, and fell on the Market street sidewalk, a square away. His legs were blown off near tho hips, both arms torn off, his head half torn away, and the body com pletely disemboweled. One of Hartman's feet was shot through the weatherboard ing of Frank Wlndle’s residence. Keefer was not killed outright. His body dropped into the sewer. .After he was taken out he recovered consciousness for a moment, but died on the way home in the ambulance. His death was caused by the shock, no bones being broken. Flynn’s legs were both broken, his arms broken in Beveral places, and his head crushed. He lived several hours. Every house within two squares was damaged. The residence of Marion Wil bur was totally destroyed. The building was blown to pieces. Mrs. Wilbur was in bed, and was thrown out upon the floor, but escaped without Injury. KNIGHTS OF LABOR.

MARCH OF THE MIKADO'S MEN Talien-Wan Reported Captured by the Japanese. France Not to Take a Hand in the Set tlement of the Trouble Until She Learns Russia's Attitude—Fort Ar thur Still Besieged by the Invaders. The Soldiers in the Chinese Army of the North on the Verge of Starvation. Shanghai, Nov. 9.—The Chinese army of the north has returned to the mountains, where the soldiers are reported te be starving, and suffering severely from cold and exposure. The Japanese army, it is reported, has camped at Feng Whang Chang. The Japanese are pursuing about 15,000 Chinese, mostly raw recruits. Port Arthur is expected to make a de termined stand against the Japanese. Admiral Sir F. W. Fremantle, in com mand of the British fleet, considers that Port Arthur will probably lie the scene of the last engagement of any importance between the Chinese and Japanese. London, Noy. 9. —A dispaleh to the Cen tral News from Chcaso, dated Nov. 6, re ports hundreds of Chinese arriving there from Manchuria, whence they are fleeing, frightened at the approach of the Japan ese. The Chinese troons, and such ves sels of the Chinese fleet us arc cooped up at Fort Arthur, have been ordered to attack the Japanese whenever they meet them, it is reported that IVrt Arthur is still invested by the Japanese, and that two of the forts there have been captured by them. The Chinese soldiers are 'lest rt ing from New Chwang, fearing an at tack by the Japanese. The Fall Mall Gazette prints a dispatch to-day saying that the Japanese forces have captured Talien-Wan. The Chinese fleet is at Wel-Hai-Wei and the Russian fleet is at Che-Foo. The Central News says that England and other powers have urged China, to make her peace proposals directly to Jap an, and to negotiate at once for the ces sation of the war. Japan has promised to receive the overtures in a benevolent spirit. A dispatch to the Times from Chee Foo dated Nov. 7, says it is reported there that fighting occurred on Ncg 4, 5 and 6 at Ta llen Wan, but that it has not been decisive. A Tien Tsin dispatch to the Times says that the responsible Chinese officials ap pear to be callous as to the fato of the empire. They attend chiefly to tseir per sonal interests, such as contracts lor furn ishing arms, etc. The people are also in different. In the vicinity of Moukden, they suffer more from fear of the Chinese sol diers than from fear of the enemy. The dispatch adds that the Russian officers on the station have been instructed to con ciliate their British colleagues. A dispatch from Shanghai states that the Chinese men of war remaining outside of Port Arthur have been ordered to at tack the Japanese fleet that Is blocking that port and preventing the egress of a number of Chinese warships now lying there. Paris. Nov. 9.—The Echo de Paris, in an article on the proposed settlement ef the Chino-Japanese troubles says France will not reply to the proposals to Intervene for the purpose of effecting a settlement of the war until she shall have learned ex actly what are Russia’s thoughts and hopes regarding the matter.

Pensacola, Fla., Nov. 9.—The Export Coal Company has made an assignment to F. C. Brent, president of the First Nation al Bank, for the benefit of its creditors. This course was agreed upon at the meet ing of the board of directors, held in this city several days ago. and the papers were filed in the office of the county clerk on Wednesday. The object of the assignment Is to place in the hands of the assignee ail of the company’s property, to be divided among its creditors according to their various demands. Mr. Brent has accepted the position of assignee, and to-day filed his bond. He was seen shortly afterwards, and in re sponse to an inquiry, stated that the cash value of the company's assets was about $139,000, and that the liabilities are a lit tle in access of the assets. He further stated that the company hopes to be able to pay out In full, and that he will endeavor to sell the plant as quirky a* possible. He had an offer for the entire plant yesterday, which he was compelled to decline. In tho meantime, as assignee, he will continue to fill the company's old contracts, end says he has reason to believe that there will be no cessation of business. It ts well understood here that the as signment means the organization of a new company to take the place of the old one, and the business of exporting coal from this port will in the future be con ducted on a much larger scale than here tofore. The Louisville and Nashville railroad has a large force of men at work re building the coal chutes, and It Is expected that the new company will be fully or ganized by the time the chutes are com pleted.

DEATH OF THE CZAR. Tho Remains Reach Moscow-What tha Doctors Say. London, Nov. 9.—The Dally News corre spondent in Vienna confirms the report that Gen. Gourko, military governor of Warsaw, has received a petition for the release of the Klllnskl convicts. The cor respondent adds thut more Catholic priests in Russian-Poland have been ar rested or suspended for refusing to swear allegiance to the czar. Among them, ho says, are the Bishops of Lublin and Ban doml. The Princess Alix of Hesse Is said to have Interceded for some of the priests j released yesterday. The Dally News correspondent in Pari* ! says: “While services w'ere in progress in Protestant und Jewish places of wor ship the Catholic church stood aloof from the universal mourning Cardinal Rich ard’s silent disregard of the popular wish for a requiem mass in the cathedral of Notre Dame prompted accusations of a lack of patriotism. The Catholics then threatened to ask the government to con vert the Arc de Trlomphe Into a chapel and to invite the Russian popes to say mass at nil impromptu altar beneath It. "Cardinal Richards has now announced a service to be held at the cathedral of Notre Pome on the 11th. He himself will officiate and will offer prayers for Russia and France, but not for the czar. Al though the public think the cardinal has yielded, the exception shows that really he has not.” "To-night Cardinal Richards ordered prayers throughout the diocese.” "Warsaw dispatches say that Gen. Gourko has commanded explicitly that the oath of allegiance must be taken In Rus sian. Moscow. Nov. 9—A second funeral train accompanied the one bearing the body of the czar as far as this city.

It is announced this evening that the czar’s body will leave Moscow probably on Nov. 12, and lie in stage in Bt. Peters burg only three days. This haste is un precedented, but It is stated that the fu neral must be held soon owing to the delay In embslmlng. Seventy foreign princes have given notice of their intention to at tend the funeral. The space is so limited that the embassy staffs probably will be unable to enter tho cathedral. Nicholas 11.

DAILY, 810 A YEAR, I J „ 5 c K.VTS A COPY. > ' "*FKT,Y. U TIMES A WF.EK. *1 A YEAR f POLITICS KILLS BUSINESS. The Elections Being Over a Revival Is Looked For. • Colder Weather Also Haying a Favor able Eifeot on Trade—Dun Points Out That the Mere Fact That the Result of the Elections Is Expected to Stimulate Business Will Tend to Make it Better. New York, Nov. 9.—Bradstreet’a to-mor row will say: "Interest In the elections this week naturally tended to restrict the volume of trade, particularly south, whero it interfered with mercantile col lections. But within a few days the In fluence of more seasonable weather west and northwest, together with the em phasis with w hlch political questions have apparently been settled have increased tha confidence of many merchants and man ufacturers in a prrspect for an increased rate of Improvement In general trade in the near future. "The Philadelphia and Pittsburg mar kets continue as last reported, the move ments of mcrshandlse being moderate in volume; collections not satisfactory, but the prospects fairly bright. The demand for lumber and leather forms an excep tion, being more active. "Baltimore reports a less satisfactory trade, the political excitement there hav ing Interrupted business more than at the large eastern cities. The distribu tion of shoes appears as active as that of any other staple business In other lines, except holiday goods, being quiet. "Charleston lumbermen report a fair business, but in other lines there is na change. "Similar (ondltlons prevail at Memphis, but at Nashville there is more activity In general lines. notably In the receipts of California canned goods. The only mate rlal effect of the election excitement on business is delayed collections. "There is a seasonable activity In gen eral lines at Atlanta. "At Chattanooga and Birmingham, rather more activity is observed In bust* ness circles, while collections were fairly) satisfactory. "Wholesale and retail houses at Jackson* ville report trade fairly satisfactory for the season, but at Savannah there is no special change, except that collections aro satisfactory. Augusta's report Is similar, except ns to collections, which are slow. "At New Orleans rather more a check to business Is noted, due to Interest in the election, but Increased activity is expected soon. "At Galveston trade Is dull In all lines It. O, Dunn & Company's weekly review of trade says: “Business has been watt ing tho greater part of the past week and -UuMtlm.-Uons are expected to give It a sharp stimulus. Whether we are right or wrong in expecting bettor things, the fact that they expect them does tend to make thinga better. Thus a larger volume of trade might be anticipated, although no political events can alter the else of tho corn crop, nor make the demand for wheat or cotton closer to the supply. Neither can the elec tion returns alter the tariff, and if any in dustry Is affected by it, favorably or un favorable, the situation is exactly the same as It was before the people voted, at least for some time to come. But It is fair to Infer that further modifications of the tariff are rendered leas probable by the elections of Tuesday. “In the speculative markets there has been scarcely any movement, and nothing favorable to holders. “The treasury 'reports a gain of about 1500,000 In Its gold reserve for the week, but the customs and Internal revenue re ceipts are very low, and for tho month of November thus far the expenditures have exceeded the receipts about 50 per cent. Foreign Imports at New York for two weeks have shewn a gain of only 2.2 pep cent, while In the exports of domestic products from New York there appears u. loss of $4,700,000 for the same weeks, or 27 per cent. "The output of pig Iron was larger by, 7,731 tons Nov. 1, when It was 155.868 tons,' than it was Oct. 1, and larger than a year ago, but it is still about 13 per cent, below tho output last May, before the great de pression began. It is noted that nearly all the furnaces in the regions depend ing on Conneiisville coke and lake ore ara now in operation, with an output of 89,000 tons weekly out of a maximum In that region of 94,000 tons, but Bessemer iron is rather weaker at Pittsburg, and prices for finished products of iron and steel have not Improved. Some of the wire rod mills have closed for lack of orders, and a few of the large steel-making concerns have reduced the hours of work. At the same time there Is a decided Improve ment in the tone of the market, and a general confidence that the business will now improve. "In the textile industries there is rather more hesitation than appeared a week ago. Print cloths are lower, having de clined to 2.62 c, and some of the cotton mills have discontinued production be cause the demand is unsatisfactory, tha shrinkage in the western and southern de mand being generally attributed to tha low prices of cotton and wheat, and to the short crop of corn. "Scarcely anything Is doing In woolen goods for spring delivery and the demand for fall nnd winter goods has nearly dig appeared. In general It Is believed that the spring orders thus far are not more thnn half the usual quantity. "The reporta of failures are. on the whole, encouraging in comparison with last year, and yet the volume of liabil ities is larger for the season than In any year of ordinary prosperity. The aggre gate In five weeks ending Nov. 1 has been $10,772,943, of which $4,388.878 were of man ufacturing and $6,303,862 of trading con cerns. The failures during the past week have been 261 In the United States, against 33* last year, and 42 in Canada, against 47 last year. There have been a few failures- of consequence during the week, but none of extensive Influence.
