Thousand of Strangers Pouring Into Washington Ten Thousand Inaugural Hull Tlckcti Alrendy Sold Tlio Inaugu ral Supper Will Conmtmo till tlio Coun try's Catch of Terrapin. Washington, March 4. The committee in chargo of tho inaugural ball nud re ception has contracted with the Pinker ton Detectivo ngency to supply officers to guard tho reception and ball, us well ns tho city of Washington, during tho inuugu. a tion. Under the now arrangement any crooked man known anywhere in the United States will bo placed under nrrost os soon as ho steps oil tho train in this city. At every inauguration sinco Washington hns been the scene of excitement atteudirit upon such an occasion. Tho thieves flocked to Washington like flocks of geeso to tlu south at tlio appearance of cold weather. They have had full sway in the city and at tho inaugurral ball, and notwithstanding the efforts of the police, stealing has gone on openly. This year the committee in chargo of the ball opened up a correspondence with tho Pinkerton agency, and tho flual arrange ments have been made. According to tho agreement, Mr. Roliert A. Pinkerton, superintendent of the eastern division of the agency, and his brother, Mr. William A. Pinkerton, of Chicago, will have full chargo of the police at tho hall, and while tho crowd remains in the city. The officers selected will be from tho Pinkerton stall at New York, Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Brooklyn, Boston, Pitts burg, Philadelphia and St. Paul. With the30 men on hand it will be a difficult matter for nny crook to appear openly on tho streets of Washington. Tickets to tho ball will bo sold exclusively by Pinkerton men, aud a corps of tho same detectives w ill tako them up at tho door, so it will bo impossible for any iniproiwr person to obtain admission to the ball without being discovered. Tho ticket-sellers and handlers will be selected from tho corps w ho every summer handle tho tickets at tho Manhattan Bay and Sheapshoad Bay race tracks, which nro guurded by Pinkerton's men, and in ad dition a numbjr of men who nre well an Iquaiutcd with tjio smart people of the coun try will bo stationed at tho door and inside the hall, to point out pooplo who may not te known to the doorkeepers. I Asido from this nrrangomont tho Messrs. Pinkerton have closed a contract with Chief of Police William C. Mooro to guard tho city and hotels ngninst tlio organized gangs of thieves aud bunko men who flock here at every inauguration. Under tho nrrange- ' ment, which could not bo bettered, there is i little doubt that President Harrison's inau guration w ill bo f reo from the evils that have attended so many others. Ten Thousand Ball Tickets Sold. Wasiiincton', March 4. It is said that 10,000 tickets have been sold for tho iuuug. , ural ball at 50 each. It is likely that 2,000 inoro will bo issued.

I Excursion trains are pouring thousands of Terrapin Cornered. Philadelphia, March 4. Tho terrapin markot in Philadelphia, New York and Bal timore has been cornered. Whon tho stew ards of tho various city clubs went to mar ket to procure the delicacies for Sunday they were informed that there was not a ter rapin iu tho city. Telegrams were sent to New York and Baltimore. Tho answer iu both cases were the sumo: '"Market was cornered for inauguration ball about three weeks ago." Georgo C. Boldt, who will provide tho great supper, instructed his agent in this city sometime ago to purchase all the ter rapin obtainable. Tho prices paid were high. As a result 1,700 largo terrapin and :),400 small specimens were contracted for. Fri day evening tlioy wero boiled and picked. Tho amount made 2.V) gallons, which, at tho re tall prico of $5 a quart, make $5,000 worth of this luxury for Harrison's admirers. Friday night a special train carried tho terrapin to Washington.

Dun & Com pany's weekly roviow of trado says: Traders who have been waiting through a belated season for tho expected winter trado finds Hint it does not come, and spring has ar rived. Henco there nre on hnnd largo stocks of unsold winter goods, which account for tho tardiness of collections in many quarters, and for tho general senso of disappointment. I Though tlio trado of February, like that of January, has been rather larger on tlio wholo than that of last year, it is not forgotten thnt business was unusually interrupted last , year by storms, strikes and other imp3.Il- ments. But the outlook for tho spring and tho feoling of confidence as to tho future nro at least as favorable as a year ago, though in soino departments tho stato of trado is at present unsatisfactory. At fully half tho Interior points which ro port this week there is noted a fairly good trade or some improvement. Pittsburg ob serves an advance of twonty-flvo cents in some kinds of pig iron, and a better inquiry for manufactured in many forms. GreaUr Btrength'is also observed at Cleveland, where the trade of treasury is reckoning better than usual. Philadelphia notes most cau tious dealing in dry goods on account of stock, heavy goods carried ovor. No chango in wool, a firmer market for leather, and a slow market with tardy collections for drugs and chemicals. As to collections, Omaha alone reports improvement, though at Cleve land city collections aro good, but the coun try is slow. At all other points tardiness Is noticed. Tho money markets aro everywhere amply supplied for legitimate business, but the de mand is moderate or light. While trade iu dry goods hero is considered larger for Feb ruary than that of last year, tho unusual caution of buyers continues and woolen cloths are without activity, while staple cottons aro comparatively quiet COMMERCIAL UNION.
