Chicago, Aug. 2.—The wheat market put
in a bard session to-day. It differed from
that of yesterday in that there was no
recovery to sneak of before the close.
The curb trade, before the regular op
ening, was at fractionally higher prices,
light receipts from the northwest, sixty
four ears being the basis for the slight
ly firmer tone. The opening transactions
were made with part of the advance main
tained, but the foundation of the
strength was destroyed -when the expla
nation of the small movement was given.
Farmers in the section referred to are
busy harvesting at present and, there
fore, have no trine to haul grain to mar
kilt. Bt. Louis bad 111.600 bushels of
wheat this morning, which further Imbued
sellers with courage. About noon the an
nouncement of heavy gold shipments to
Europe to-morrow struck another blow at
prices, t'he steady *tone, which had then
developed on covering by shorts, giving
place to one of extreme weakness and de
pression, wltlh holders liquidating freely
ami bears pressing their advantage. A
slight rally took place later, but it did not
betoken any change in the sentiment, be
ing due rather to the taking of profits
on previous sales. September wheat op
ened from 69t4(T700. declined to GSHc, clos
ing at 68i.,568*>*e—l* 8 51*c under yesterday.
Cash wheat was 1 to l*4c lower Chan yes
terday, and weak at the decline.
Corn—There was a marked change In the
feeling and demeanor of September shorts
In corn to-day, where yesterday they were
all anxiety, and caused the market for
that option to act in a feverish manner,
to-day were appearing very comfortable
and allowing prices to pursue their own
course, which was downward in sympathy
with wheat. It was the holders' turn to
worry and under the altered circumstances
there was heavy liquidation. September
opened at 41c, declined to 42>,4c. closing at
42%c—lQ'lHc under yesterday. Cash corn
was not insuch good demand to-day and
prices were quotable l{ilV4c lower.
Oats—This markeit was a slow affair,
until the emphatic weakness In wheat ap
peared about noon, when there was a
decided break. The decline started under
the selling out by September longs
and was helped along by the local crowd,
who perceived the inadequacy of the de
mand and raided prices in a bearish way
Some of the large commission houses had
large selling orders and quite a consid
erable quantity of oats were thrown over
board. September oats closed %c lower.
Cash oats were weak and a shade lower.
Provisions—Pork, lard and ribs held up
as long as it was possible. The ability to
do so came from a recovery in hog prices
at the yards, buit against the weakness
communicated by grain, there was but
little oppftslng force. Professional short
sellers offered liberally and disgruntled
hulls sold out. The consequence was
that every thing suffered, pork more than
Other articles. A trifling improvement on
the worst prices of (the day were recorded
before the close, but in the end t'he net
loss on September pork was 3.5 c, on Sep
tember lard, sc. and on September ribs,

A New Disease in tlie Sea Island Cot
ton Plant.
From the Charleston News and Courier.
Possibly very few people know that In
the plant world every once and a while
the botanists discover anew malady. An
Instance of the kind has happened right
at Charleston's doors within the last few
years. It was along in 1891 that the sea
island planters first observed that their
long staple cotton was suffering from a
new disease. The plants would spring up
and grow finely for a while, and then, all
at once, within a day they would wilt and
die. The farmers could find no explana
tion of the phenomenon. Apparently the
cotton would be doing well, and outward
ly there was no reason for the death of the
plants. Sometimes there would be merely
a few stalks thus affected, and then again
It would be all the plants on half an acre
or more. Each year the destruction of the
plants in this way has increased, and this
season Mr. Earle Sloan wrote to the agri-

cultural department In Washington, stat
ing the facts in the case, together with
some observations made by himself, and
requested the department to send a spe
cialist down to Investigate the matter. The
government responded at once, sending
down Dr. Erwin F. Smith, who is the
director of vegetable physiology and path
ology in the depariment of agriculture.
Dr. Smith arrived In Charleston last
week, and went at once over lo James
Island. He has his headquarb rs at Mr.
Hinson's place, across the Ashley, and
has already made some valuable discov
eries regarding the new diseases.
In company with Mr. Sionn and Mr.
"James L Watkins of the cotton statistics
bureau of the agricultural department, a
reporter for the News and Courier called
upon Dr. Smith on Monday. Dr. Smith was
found In the Impromptu office which he
has rigged up for himself In the thirl
story of Mr. Hinson's handsome residence.
He had before him a high power micro
scope and other apparatus of a laboratory
and he was surrounded kr.ee deep with
dead plants which he had collected from
various parts of the Island.
Specialists are always Interesting when
speaking of their specialty. Dr. Smith was
especially so yesterday, as he spoke at
some length regarding certain diseases
wiQi which crops In this section have been
affected. No detective hot bn the trail of
a human criminal could have engaged
more eagerly In the pursuit of his man
thun Dr. Smith has followed the traces
of this hitherto unknown agent that is
now playing havoc with the sou Island cot
ton plants. It did not take him long to
find a clew and now he Is following it up
step by step, and hopes ultimately to ex
plain the whoK case and If possible to dis
cover a prevcnatlve.
Dr. Smith says that the disease Is one
which has been observed for some time in
watermelon vines and that It consists of
the development of a fungus growth In the
water ducts of the plants. When ask • 1
what he meant by fungus he said that It
was not a bug, but a germ that was ac
quired from the soil, while tlie plant grew,
and that the malady was consequently In
ternal and not external. With the as
sistance of his powerful microscope and a
section of watermelon vine'he then pro
ceeded to show the visitors Just what
killed the plants. He drew diagrams show -
ing how each plant i perforated by a
complete miniature water works, begin
ning with the Vine hair like roots and de
veloping Into great duota which supply
the stem cf the vine ot plant. No plan*,
he said, could live without a fresh supply
of water for twenty-four hours, and as
soon as the canals w-hieli he had point and
out became clogged the plant would die.
The germs of this disease were taken
from the soli by *he roots and imported
to the stem of the plant. Under certain
conditions these germs propagated and
brought forth a fungus growth. The fungi
wave, as It were, travels across the ducts
and no Booner was this done than the
water supply was either retarded or cut
off altogether, und then the death of the
plant followed at once. All of this I)r.
Smith explalfled In great detail and In a
most Interesting manner, illustrating as
ho went along with sections of plants In
which the fungi had developed and could
be plainly seen under the microscope. Dr.
Smith said that he hopes to make new
discoveries along these same lines before
leaving Charleston. He seems already to
be confident that the disease from which
the sea Island cotton has suffered Is the
same as that by which the watermelon
vines had been attacked. He proposes to
spend a week or more over on James
Island, and then he will visit other parts
of the south, to see if he can find traces
of the new disease elsewhere.
Mr. Ellis of James Island, said that the
disease was steadily increasing. At first
ba< k in 1891 only a few stalks of cotton
died from it, but now In some places as
much as three acres had been cut off. In
a place where one stalk died last season
several square yards of cotton would die
this season.
Mr. Earle Sloan has taken a great deal
of Interest in the subject, nnd ho Is ren
dering valuable assistance to Dr. Smith.
If farmers who have discovered any symp
toms of the disease in their crops will
communicate the fact to Mr. Sloan he will
transmit the intelligence to the agricul
tural department and the matter will re
ceive the proper attention.
Ills Holiness Writes to Cardinal
Gibbons In Reference to the Cath
olic University.
The Osservatore Romano of July 11 pub
lishes an Interesting and important letter
of the holy father to his eminence, Car
dinal Gibbons, concerning the Catholic
University of America. The following Is
the translation;
To our beloved son, James, Cardinal
Gibbons, of the title of St. Mary's be
yond the Tiber, archbishop of Baltimore.
Beloved Son, Health and Apostolic Bene
diction: Another opportunity for mani
festing our affection and our watchful
care toward your Catholic university is
afforded us by the most pleasing news
concerning It, which we have received from
you. Seeing that we have ourselves by
apostolic authority established it and In
vested It with the rights and privileges by
law provided, we greatly rejoice, not only
that it has approved itself to us by the
fruitfulness 6f its good results during the
past six years, but also that It is on the
point of undertaking stiil wider work.
That we hoped for this development of Its
growth we declared In the letter recently
addressed to us by yourself and the other
bishops of the United States. And now we
learn that through your ready response
and through the liberality of the faithful,
new departments of learning are to be in
augurated In the university next October,
which shall ofT< r fresh advantages to ec
clesiastical students, and shall at the same
time provide the laity with superior facili
ties for higher education. You-have wise
ly determined that these studies should
be comprised under a faculty of philoso
phy, but a philosophy equipped and
adorned with those various auxiliary stud
ies which, when fully and learnedly pur
sued, on the one hand, lend light for the
discovery of truth and add glory to truth
discovered, und on the other hand, en
hance the truth in public esteem and thus
render it more practically fruitful. Of
such results we find good promise In the
names of the distinguished professors al
ready chosen, especially because of their
resolve faithfully to follow', as we have
prescribed, that surest method of philoso
phic study pointed out by Bt. Thomas
So excellent an undertaking could not
but receive the approval and the best
wishes of this apostolic see, whose cus
tom it has ever been to promise and in
every way to foster all learned studies.
We wish, therefore, that the university
may through this new development mor
and more advance, wax strong and boor
ish, for the advantage and honor bo.d
of religion and of the republic. To It let
the t at hollo college* be earnest to scud up
their most talented and premising stu
dents; in it let the hpnds of holy unity
a nous Catholics be Knit * lose and strong,
an example of surpassing utility, and from
it, as from a fountain open to all, may a
great power of both learning und prae
ttcal Influence pour far and wide for the
best welfare of all.
Meantime, to yourself, beloved son, to
all the archbishops nnd bishops protec
tors of the university, to those through
whose generous nmnltlcencp it is support
ed and developed, to the professors an 1
students of the new departments and to
nil connected with the Institution we most
lovingly bestow the apostolic benediction.
