Trading Dull Just Now With Firm
Feeling for Future
new Crop Held Beck la Anticipation of
Detter Prices, Though World's Wheat
Supolij Is Greater Than Last Year.
New York, October 19 The
week's developments in the grain
markets appear to hold out the
promise of higher prices. Dun's
Review today says:
Fluctuations in cereals 'were
small, with markets dull and fea
tureless, Corn receded a little
farther, influenced unfavorably
by the insignificant shipments
from Atlantic ports, only 501,155
bushels for the week, compared
with 2,799,887 last year, and 4,
740, 253 in 1 899. W heat lost a lit
tle of the early gain, although
declining prices a year ago make
the difference smaller than it has
been at any time this crop year.
Foreign buying of Hour is still
unsatisfactory, but the outgo of
wheat is heavy; for the United
States exports, flour included,
amounting to 4,391,053 bushels,
compared with 3,046,761 last
year, and 4,255,706 two years
ago. "Western receipts of 5,903,
014 bushels, against 7,426,551
last week and- 7,126,419 a year
ago, indicate that the new crop
is being marketed less freely,
growers holding back in expecta
tion of better prices, despite the
estimate of foreign authorities
that the world's yield will exceed
2,700,000,000 bushels, and unof
ficial predictions of a domestic
crop of more than 750,030,000
Bradstreet's Report says:
The cereal markets were rath
er apathetic early this week.
Reduced speculative interest and
liquidation, caused by larger re
ceipts at the Northwest, weak
ened prices early.
Decreases in these receipts and
smaller Argentine shipments and
poor crop reports brought about
a rather firmer feeling later, by
which the early loss was regain
ed and a slight advance regis
tered on the week. All estimates
agree that the world's wheat
supply will be larger than a year
ago, the increases being here and
in Canada. But against this is
the fact that tha rye, corn and
oats yield, not to mention other
food stuffs, are smaller this year
than for some years past.
Briush arc Too Slow.
London, Oct., 18. Lord
George Hamilton, secretary of
state for India, has written an
important letter to John George
Alexander Baird, M. P., member
of a great Scotch iron firm, on
how to keep orders for locomo
tives in England. Lord Hamil
ton says the requirements of In
dia and South Africa in this line
are increasing greatly, and will
continue to do so. Orders have
gone to Germany, and America
because the firms in those coun
tries can deliver the engines
much quicker than the English
builders. Lord George Hamil
ton says British manufacturers
must therefore increase their
means of production.
About Wood Pulp.
Muncie, Ind., Oct. 18 An of
ficial of the Muncie pulp manu
facturing company today makes
the statement that the wood pulp
manufacturing concerns of the
country are soon to be merged
under one management. For ten
days eastern " capitalists have
been visiting the pulp plants of
the United States, being in Mun
cie Tuesday. Newspaper men
have been refused the name of a
single man of the party of twen
ty. Their trip covered twenty
days' time and is to close in Con
necticut. President Blackman
and Secretary Norris of the Mun
cie duId company, from New
York, were in the party.
Serious Rumor About the Pope.

which may possibly lead to ser
ious consequences.
Unpatriotic Preacher Ourted.
Marysville, Kan. Oct. 18.
The Rev. F. J. Rice, pastor of
the baptist church of Marysville,
has been accused by nis congre
fj&tion of lack of patriotism, and
ousted from his pastorate.. On
he Sunday following the death
cf President McKinley it is al-
eged the minister failed either
to pronounce a eulogy upon the
ate chief executive in his ser-
mon, or to reier xo nis aeain in
his prayers. Words of sym
pathy for the afflicted wife were
spoken, but the application was
not clear enough to satisfy all
his hearers. Mr. Rice is absent
rom the city attending the bap
ist state convention at Kansas
Tax Dodger Fined.
Crawfordsville, Ind., Oct.
18 William Cox, a wealthy
farmer, was fined $1,000 and costs
n the circuit court yesterday for
withholding taxables. It was
shown that for seventeen years
he has made false returns and
escaped taxation on over $100,-
000. As a result of the criminal
prosecution the assessor has plac
ed $50,000 on the tax duplicate
against him. "
Sends Two Additional Warships to Vene
zuela for Redress.
Bremen, Oct. 17. Germany's
reply to Venezuela's attack last
week on German sailors is to be
he dispatching of the cruiser
Valke and another warship not
yet named to re-enforce the large
cruiser Vineta, which is now in
Venezuela waters. At the ports
of Hamburg and Bremen, where
interest in Venezuela is chiefly
centered, the commercial and
slipping classes, supported by
influential newspapers, are Urg
ing the imperial srovernment in
strong terms to seize this long
awaited opportunity to obtain a
footfold of some sort in Central
The necessity for aggressive
measures is emphasized all the
more, they assert, since the con
struction of the Nicaragua canal
is to be regarded as absurd. It
s deeply regretted that the pre
iminary arrangements between
he American and the British
governments have been conclud
ed without providing for interna-
ional control or for a guaranty
of neutrality.
It was hoped by German com
mercial interests that Germany,
as a strong seatanng nation.
would be permitted to become a
party to the treaty. This hope
having proved a vain one, it is
urged more strongly than ever
that Germany pursue a course of
ts own in Central America in
spite of Uncle Sam. "We have
ights in Venezuela," say the
jingoes, 'lor once toe district or
Caracas was German territory,
and once German territory al
ways German territory."
These ultra pan-Teutons hope
that the changes in Venezuela
which are expected as the result
of the inevitable fall of President
Castro will offer an opportunity
for intervention on the ground of
securing guaranties for the bet
ter protection of German in
Will Send Out Much Seed.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 19
The department of agriculture
has completed plans for the an
nual seed distribution through
out the country Despite the
fact that double vthe usual
amount of seeds are to be sent
out this winter, the preliminary
work is advanced much further
than in recent years. There will
be 37,000,000 packets of seed dis
tributed, comprising both vege
tables and flowers. The depart
ment will begin sending out the
seeds about Dec. 1, and most of
them will be furnished through
senators and represenatives.

Cologne, Oct. 18. A dispatch
to the Gazette from Sofia says
that Mr. Dickinson, the Ameri

Miss Stone, the American mis
sionary, has discovered that the
brigands who captured her are
the tools of the Macedonian com
mittee. He has therefore reso

and has asked the Bulgarian
government to arrest the chief
instisrators of the abduction.
Several influential members o
the Macedonian committee have
already been arrested.

Widespread Activity in Manufact
uring Lines.
This Year's business Will Doubtless
Exceed Ail Previous Records and
Unfavorable Signs Are Rare.
New York, Oct. 19. Dun's
Weekly Review of Trade says
Unfavorable signs are rare in
the business outlook. Manufact
uring industries enjoy exception
al activity, and most jobbers and
retailers find no . occasion for
complaint. Mild weather is the
one influence that may be
charged with retarding retail
merchandise distribution, yet
there is general confidence that
any sales thus postponed will be
made up later. The same in
fluence is invaluable in facilitat
ing the handling of crops, erect
ing buildiugs, and other outdoor
Although a fifth of the year is
stiil to be heard from, including
the usual interruption of elec
tions and possible disturbance of
legislation, there is ample evi
dence that the volume of legiti
mate business will largely exceed
all previous records. Specula
tion is comparatively quiet, both
in securities and options in lead
ing products, which emphasizes
the activity in trado channels,
as shown by bank exchanges for
the week at New York, C3.0 per
cent larger than last year and
8.4 above 1809, while at other
leading cities the gains were
1G.3 and 9.1 per cent, respective
ly. Railway earnings reported
for October thus far exceed last
year's by 6.8 per cent and 1899
by 11.3 per cent.
Gov. Pillsburv is Dead.
Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 19.
John S. Pillsbury, ex-governor
of Minnesota and one of the
state's foremost citizens, died
yesterday morning of Bright's
disease. His illness was com
paratively brief, owing to his
advanced age. He was 73 years
old. He was a member of the
famous family of flour, millers
and in spite of numerous bene
factions leaves a larsre fortune.
He served three terms as gover
nor, from 1876 to 1882.

Five Men Killed in a New York Tunnel
and Others Injured.
New York, Oct. 19. Five
men were killed and two injured
yesterday when an enormous
mass of rock caved from the side
and roof of the rapid-transit
tunnel, iu course of construction,
on Broadway about the line of
One Hundred and Sixty-Fourth
street, in this city.
The section of the tunnel
where the cavein occurred is 105
feet below the surface. The ac
cident occurred about 640 feet
from the shaft. -
Without warninir. a mass of
rock sixty-three feet long, eleven
feet wide, and ten feet high and
weighing about 150 tons, fell
with a tremendous crash, almost
closing the tunnel and creating a
panic among the 200 or 300 men
at work. Great clouds of dust
filled the excavation. The fright
ened men made wild efforts to
escape, their cries adding to the
confusion and horor.
Word of the accident had been
quickly spread, and soon an
anxious crowd gathered around
the shaft, scores of men and
women weeping and wringing
their hands.
When the rescuing party be
gan to remove the rock they
found tho bodies under masses
of rock which could not be moved.
It was the work of hours to drill
the holes and charge them. Last
night it was said that the fallen
mass of rock had been blown to
pieces and that no more bodies
had been found, and it is not be
lieved that any more lives were
Roosevelt's First Message to Congress to
be a Notable State Document.
Washington, D. C Oct. 17
President Roosevelt is
the work of writing his
going at
to congress with the same stren
uous energjr he applies to every
duty, He has held conference
after conference with the leading
men in congress and has had one
talk after another with the chiefs
of the departments, until he has
become unusually well acquaint
ed with all the intricate machin
ery of the government.
People who expect President
Roosevelt to write an extremely
brief message consisting largely
ot summaries of the reports of
the cabinet officers will be disap
pointed. He will write his own
message and he will discuss
every phase of the national life
which he considers of -special im
portance. He is not afraid to write -what
he thinks, and his message will
be peculiarly his own from ba
nning to end. He will have
something individual to say about
reciprocity, the trusts, the Nic
aragua Canal, the reorganization
of the army, the proper method
of building up the navy, the de
velopment of the agricultural in
terests of the country, the exten
sion of the rural free delivery
service, and a half dozen other
topics, all of great importance to
the people at large.
The president is a trained writ
er and distinctively a man of in
dividual ideas which he is not
afraid to express in his own lan
guage. Ho is manifestly impress
ed with tho vastness of the gov
ernment he has been called upon
to administer, and he expects to
take up the important features
presented in each department of
the erovernment.
Under the circumstances, there
fore, the President's message
cannot bo a short one. With the
art of the trained writer,. Presi
dent Roosevelt will undoubtedly
cut down his message to the ex
act measure of the topics he dis
cusses, but it is no part of the
plan of the chief executive to
omit notice of important national
events or to refrain from giving
advice the constitution expects
a president to give merely to se
cure a brevity which-may be
"business-like,' but certainly not
Any one who cares to forecast
the message will not go far
wrong if he weaves together the
Buffalo speech of William Mc
Kinley aud the Minneapolis
speech of Theodore Roosevelt.
Between them they constitute an
actual digest of the important
document now actually in pro
cess of construction at the White
Child Born in Captivity. .

Five Hundred Boers Penetrate to
British Troops Harm me Burghers but
Without Cftcct, Getting Sniped In
Return as They March.
Cape Town, Oct. 18. The in
vaders have reached the sea, a
commando of 500 men having
penetrated through the rich
Great Berg river valley to Hope
field and Saldanha bay, north
west of Cape Town. The repub
licans have secured a number of
recruits and considerable quanti
ties of supplies. General French
is directing the operations
against them.
In a brisk fight at Twenty
Four Streams, near Picquetburg
Captain Bellew and four other
British were killed and several
others wounded.
The British having surprised
several camps, the Boers are
now in the habit of shifting camp
by night. Lately the British
columns after long night marches
have arrived at their objectives
onljT to find the Boers gone.
British columns penetrating
Orange River Colony miles trom
the railways find fields -of maize
or freshly plowed lands, the
Boers making off at their ap
proach and returning when the
columns pass on. The herds on
the high veldt still seem to be
numerous. The Boers are living
on cattle and mealies stored in
out-of-the-wa3T places.
A number of British columns
are operating in all the districts
of the Orange River Colony.
Thej are giving the
Boers no
rest and are sratherins:
in stock
and grain and a few prisoners.
Reconr.oitering parties are con
tinually sent in all directions.
They occasionally locate a few
Boers, who gallop off when dis
covered. The3r then hide and
snipe the British as they are re
turning from their hard marches.
The columns are passing through
a difficult country in the south
eastern part of the colony. They
have found there that the Boers
have deserted their farms, taking
everything possible with them,
and are hiding in the mountains.
American Possibilites Foreseen by Enthusi
astic Banker.
Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 18.
The closing day's session of the

After a prayer by the Rev. J.
Beveridge Lee of Milwaukee,
President Trowbridge introduced
P. C. Kauffman of Tacoma.
Wash., who spoke on "The
Financial and Commercial Fu
ture ot the Pacific Coast. v
Mr. Kauffman said:
"The twentieth century opens
for the United States with its in
dustrial machinery adjusted to
the production of wealth on a
scale of unprecedented magni
tude. The nations of Europe
and the world at large are con
stantly becoming more and more
dependent upon us not only for
raw materials, but also for man
ufactured products; and it may
be confidently asserted that be
cause of our central position be
tween the Atlantic and Pacific
seaboards, because of our excel
lent transportation facilities, our
varied and inexhaustible re
sources and the steadily increas
ing dependence of the world
upon us for the necessities and
even many of the luxuries of life,
the United States is destined to
be the greatest commercial power
of the commercial age, the twen
tieth century. Our great trans
continental railroads are , fully
awake to the situation and are
enlarging their facilities to
handle the great commerce of
the future in the construction of
immense warehouses and docks
and the establishment of great
steamship lines, operated in close
connection and under their direct
"To obtain pre-eminence, the
United States must enter this
field of commercial activity
through her Pacific Coast.
"With Hawaii, the key to the
commerce of the Pacific, and the
Philippines, the gateway to the
orient, both in our hands, fate or
a kind Providence has given us
two most important and valuable
aids for the attainment of this
glorious goal.
"The question of the wisdom
of the policy of expansion has
been settled forever. It is no
longer even a debatable one. Our
flag has been raised in the Phil
ippines, and, thank God, it is
there to stay.
"It takes no prophet to state
that if the people of the United
States will but awaken to a full
realization of the grandeur of
their destiny and the greatness
of their opportunities they will
settle down to a development of
the commerce of the orient that
will ere many years re-establish
our merchant marine, cover the
Pacific with our white-winged
birds "of commerce, establish on
the Pacific coast commercial em
poriums that will rival any in the
world and pour into our treasur
ies the riches of Golcouda."
Fiske Warren Suspected of Treasonable
Manila, Oct. 19. Five hun
dred bolomen attacked a detach
ment of forty-six men of. the 9th
infantry at Bangajon, on the
Gandara river, island of Samar,
yesterday killing ten and wound
ing six. The remainder of the
company arrived on the scene in
time to prevent further slaugh
ter and routed the enemy, killing
over 100 of them. It is believed
that the enemy only retired for
re-enforcements. As soon as the
ne vs was received at Catbalogan
two gunboats were dispatched,
Gen. Smith going in person to
the scene.
Fiske Warren, the first man to
take the oath of allegiance re
quired under the recent act of
the Philippine commission of all
suspects attempting to land, has
been closely identified with Sixto
Lopez. Many trsasonable and
inflammatory proclamations were
found in his basrjrasre. Regard
ing these, he said he had only
one copy of each, having retain-
ea tnese as souvenirs. it is
known also that he was intimate
with the members of the junta in
Hongkong. He at first objected
to taking the oath, saying that
he was a loyal citizen, but he
signed it when notified that on
no other condition would he be
allowed to land.
Some of his fellow passengers
told Gov. Taft that Warren and
Lopez shook hands and retired
for consultation upon hearing of
President McKinley?s assassina
tion. Gov. Taft " considers the
action of the commission in re
quiring all suspects to swear
allegiance perfectly justified.
