THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
10 BROADWAY NEAr YO K K
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of anv other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to bv many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new. throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable life has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTINE SAYINGS FUND POLICY.
And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
Ry the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable lias a larger ratio ot assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than' any other company.
THIRD The Equitarfe's death
any other of the leading
FOURTH The Equitable realizes a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.
The Society takes pleasure in lel'errin?

ANOTHER OF ITANCOCK'S OLD LET
TERS. New York, October 7. The following
letter is made public to-day:
Washington. D. C, May 13, 1SG8.
The Hon. John Uuskln, New York:
My Dear Sir Your favor of the 12th
inst, has been received, and I am much
obliged to you for the information given
and for your flattering advocacy of my
uame in connection with presidential lion-
ors. I know there is a wulo-spread effort to
make my name prominent in that connec
tion. I think the matter more spontaneou
than directed. How deep it may be will
be told better in the future. It has arisen
no doubt, from the fact that Gen. Grant is to
be, apparently, the candidate of the radi
cals, and probably my action as com
mander of a southern military district may
have had its share. I am anxious that the
conservative element should trumpli over
radicalism. I have no ambition to be presi
dent. I shall be gratified if some one else
who can win, be nominated. My future
should I be in question, would be a mutter
of serious embarrassment, having no prcfes
sion but that of arms, which would have to
be thrown aside, and possessing no riches
However, if it be thought that I can wm
aud others not, I shall not hesitate, all
other matters being in accordance with my
sentiments (i. e., platform I mean.) I am
truly yonr obedient servant,
Signed Winfilld S. Hancock.
WEAVER IN ILLINOIS.
Ashland, 111., Oct. 7. Geu. Weaver ad
dressed about 2,000 people at Petersburg
to-day. His speech consisted principal)' in
denunciation of the republican party for
its odious financial measures. Ho recited
at great length the various laws passed by
tho republicans for the protection of ua
tioual banks, and stated that Grant had
signed them all. He dwelt particu
larly upon the outrageous bulldozing
practiced by the republicans in Massa
chusetts lo deteat Butler. He examined a
ballot gotten up by Republicans which re
sembled the star splangleil bauner. The
object of the ballot was to enable the Re
publicans to tell who voted their tickets,
and they compelled their employes to vote
it or be discharged, He denounced this as
worse bulldozing than the shot-gua, be
cause two could play at the latter gniue,
while with the former a man had to vote
the republican ticket or let his family

RAILWAY AND STEAMSHIP RATES.
Cincinnati, Oct. 7. The" rate commit
tees of. the Southern Railway and Steam
ship assoeiation is in session in this city.
The only thing agreed upon yet is that tho
rate of cotton to New England mills shall
be tho same by either rail or coast line
water route. There are other matters under
London, England, Sept. 20, 1880.
Another week of exceptional fine weath
er has brought harvest to a termination m
many parts of England under very favora
bly circumstances, while steady progress
has been made with the cutting and stack
of grain throughout Scotland and Ireland.
Of course in the latter districts, there
is still some standing corn b be seen, but
a few more days of such weather
as we are now enjoying will see this secur
ed. Such a fine ending to the harvest is of
the greatest value, for although a good
deal of wheat has undoubtedly been in
jured by blight and mildew, even damaged
corn is more valuable when stocked in
dry condition. The deliveries of new Eng
lish wheat have been steadily increasing in
the provincial markets, but at Mark Lane
the supply has been small, and a3 might
have been expected, home-grown produce
has engaged the lion's share of millers' at
tention. Sales have progressed somewhat
slowly nevertheless, and a decline of Is. per
qr, in London, and Is. to 2s. in many of the
leading country markets have taken place.
No Fresh feature ot interest hus manifested
itself in the trade for foreign wheat, and
the temporary steadiness due to the frilling
off of American shipments, gave place to a
fueling of littleness and depression on
Monday last, which has clung to the trade
during the remainder of the week.
The weather in France throughout the
past week lias been very favorable for
threshing, which now has become general,
the cutting and gathering of tho cereal
crops having concluded. It is rather
early to form an opinion as to the yield
of wheat, but the general opinion is that
the crops will fall short ot an average.
Wheat, barley and oats must be noted fully
Is cheaper, while rye has improved in
value, with a rather active demand for iho
eastern Irontier. At Paris on Wednes-
lay the offerings of both native and for
eign wheat were larg,und as millers bought
very cautiously. Tho business -done was
at a decline of fifty cents on the week. Bar
ley aud oats were abundant, but difficult to
sell; flour for consumption gave way 2s on
the week ; 01s being the quotation for Dusk
lay. Commercial marks also showed a
Irooping tendency, while the latest quota
tions indicated a full of 2s per sack.
At Dijon the wheat trade has been dull
and disappoiutiug, but rye has been in
At Marsailles tho arrival of wheat for tho
week ending August 2Sth, wcro 55,000 qrs.,
aud the stock in the docks has iucreasod to
32,300 qrs. Business has been quiet, and
prices maintained with difficulty, except for
the finest sorts. Tho shipments from Rus
sia have been very small and importers
have warehoused, tho arrivals, thenco
sooner than offer them at present prices.
At Nautes and Bordeaux sellers have shown
. t .
more resistance to tne decline, out in
neither port has tliero been much activity.
Fine dry weather has enabled tho farmers
in Germany to secure the remainder of tho
cereal crops in good condition. At Dan
zig the little new Russian wheat on offer
ins been in good condition, but the sup-
lies of home-grown, damp and sprouted ,
rye has been more liberally offered, and
prices have given way for this article as
well as lor barley.
