]Special Telegrum to the Globe.]
Ciiicvoo, Feb. 14,—The "bears" enjoyed
a full inning to-day. Everything opened
With a Doom .May wheat at $1.02%@1.02%;
corn 01 Ji'c; pork $18.80; oats 38c. For the
first time iu many days the sun shone out
full and clear aud although the themometer
marked zero in the early morning, the frost
scare was hot even whispered. All there was
to the day's business may be summed up in
few words. "The speculators wilted." The
parties who have been engineering the deal
for a few days decided to take
in their profits, as was pre
dicted in these columns 48 hours |ago,
they were likely to do at any moment. The
wheat" and com pits have been for some
days nothing but huge scalping arenas. As
soon as the market goes down a little more
the sellers of to-day will become the buyers,
and so on until they find things favorable for
receiving unto themselves their own with
lomc commissions added. Wheat opened at
1,02)4 aud after frequent fluctuations on a
lower plane than at the opening, finally closed
on 'change very weak at 1.01%. The contin
ued dumping of large blocks, realizing on
the part of some of the largest scalpers, the
telling out of country longs on top orders
aud the report from Toledo that there had
been an overestimate in the decrease of the
Visible supply, still further weakened the
narket and ou the curb May wheat was
Weak at 1.00%.
Minor, Richards & Co. say: "Wheat open
ad at about yesterday's closing price, with
free selliug from all sources, under which
the market declined steadily. It was further
assisted by the visible supply, showiug much
less of a decrease than had been estimated—
850,000bushels; also foreign markets dull.
As intimated in our circular of yesterday,
the longs were disposed to realize,and we are
of the opinion that a large quantity of long
wheat came ou the market to-day, the close
on call being at bottom prices, £1.00%. We
look for reaction from these breaks,but think
the lungs are disposed to realize along
the whole line on firm places. In making
trades for the present we would advise
only going in for short lines either way.
Wheat moderately active, and lower. Cables
Were firm and seaboard markets steady, but
bright cold weather and liberal receipts in
duced free selling, and a good many longs
were shaken out. Many local operators are
bears on wheat and bulls on corn, and when
the latter began to break they sold wheat
freely as a hedge. We advocate the buying
of wheat at about $1 for a turn. The short
aide is dangerous this early In the season,
and the purchase of May wheat on any fur
ther break will prove a good investment.
Estimates now place the decrease in the visi
ble supply at 600,000 bushels, and the
decrease on passage at 600,000 bushels.
Corn went up to 61 }£, but David Dows &
Co., John Lester, B. P. Hutchinson, Cudahy
and Stevens and the Adamses commenced
telling heavily, and the local crowd tailed* on
until 60 cents, aud very few buyers at that
price, was the quotation for May corn. Sell
ing orders were received from several points,
and scalpers who bought yesterday realized.
It soon became manifest that yesterday's
bulge was a selling one, and the unexpected
ly large receipts also helped to frighten the
friends of the coarser cereal. On the call aud
.curb tlie decline continued and to-night May
corn was sold at 57%'c, oats sympathized
%ti per bushel with corn and wheat.
The feeling in provisions was rather ner
vous. Light receipts of hogs, and higher
prices for the same, occasioned a strong
opening, and the first sales reported were
made at a considerable advance ou yesterday's
closing, as well as at the highest prices of the
day. The boom, however, failed to com
mand anything like a general support, and
with larger offerings of future
property than the trade expected, a sharp
break was witnessed. The decline, when
started, was also assisted by the depression
Buffered in grain. The closings were lower
than on 'change yesterday for pork short
ribs, and the late deliveries of lard. The
trading ou speculative account was fair, the
greatest activity prevailing around the open
ing. May was the leading deal. The cash
product was quiet."
Frank Crittenden says: "Provisions
apened up in the air again to-day, but top
prices proved very short lived, or there were
plenty willing to realize at the advance and
under moderate offerings prices gradually
sagged to the closing point. It is useless to
give an opinion on hog product. The entire
market is under control of the packing in
terests and the course of market will be gov
erned entirely by their movements. We do
not think they are selling much and we
know they'talk higher prices, but whether
they mean it or not we cannot say. Receipts
of hogs, 16,000; estimate for to-morrow, 15,
The flour market was holding up well, and
dealers are confident that a better trading
will result from the fact that we have low
freights to the east and Europe, and only a
limited quantity in stock to work from, and
home buyers and outside parties were look
ing about aud making better bids than here
tofore. The better winters and the fine
Minnesota*, from hard wheat, were the most
called for, although there was some looking
after good and sound export stock and for
the lower grades.
Rye and buckwheat are in quite light re
quest. Bran and all mill stuffs were doing
well and selling at firm prices.
The receipts of cattle were about the same
as on last Thursday, but for the week so far
there is a falling oil of about 3,000. Tradea
generally is rather quiet. The demand for
shipping cattle and for the dressed beef
trade was light, buyers not entering the
market until near noon. Butchers' stock
remains steady with a good demand. There
was also a good demand for stockers and
feeders. At the close of the market on
.Vednesday there were a good many fat cat
tle left In the pens unsold, a circumstance
seldom occuring under the light receipts of
the past few days. Had the receipts reached
b,000 cattle would have dropped a strong 25c.
Th receipts of hogs to-day were about
J,000 less than for the corresponding day
last week, yet for the week so far are 3,000
more than for the same time last week.
Trade opened quite active, and parties hav
ing orders to fill early and promptly, paid
5(5(10e higher, but after these buyers filled
their orders, the demand fell oft, prices de-
dining to yesterday's close and so remained
during the forenoon. The market generally
was not as active and buoyant as yesterday
yet a load or so of fancy hogs sold a nickel
higher. Packers were not as ready buyers as
yesterday, and shippers were holding off.
Speculators bought cautiously, not displaying
the vim with which they went in yesterday.
There wa6 no change worthy to note in the
sheep market.

New York, Feb. 14. —When business
opened this morning there was good de
mand for the leading stocks. Union Pacific,
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, and Dela
ware & Lackawanna were very active. One
firm bought 4,000 shares of the latter and
afterwards seemed to have fresh orders in it.
Illinois Central continued on its upward
course selling at the 140 early. The earn
ings for the first week in February increased
$12,000. There was quite a spurt in
Lake Shore during the afternoon the s-tock
rising to 103%. The light wtights wore
very quiet and speculation appeared to cen
ter in the better class of properties; as on
yesterday the market at Intervals became
very dull, but there was no particular pres
sure to sell at anytime, and the leaders held
their favorites well in hand throughout the
session. The bull points in Oregon Trans
continental failed to materialize. It seemed
diftcult to get up any enthusiasm In it.
Union Pacific was strong up to the finish,
also Lake Shore. The changes throughout
show but little variation from yesterday's
closing figures. The bears made a desperate
effort to break stocks at the end, but did not
succeed in creating any uneasiness among
holders, prices were steady when the ex
change closed.
Her Majesty's Grand Opera Company
Delight a Large and Critical
The special train, via the Royal Route,
which brought the first distinguished grand
opera company to the northwest, arrived in
Minneapolis at 11 o'clock yesterday morning.
The train was made up as follows: Locomo
tive No. 94, two baggage cars, two drawing
room coaches, three Pullman palace sleepers,
and two magnificent new Maun boudoir
coaches. The latter were the first which
were ever brought to this section, and in
point of beauty, excellence of arrangements
for the comforts and pleasure
of Its occupants, have no superior. They
are the property of
Col. Mapleson, and are novel and different
trom any other Coach. They are divided in
to separate berths, which are constructed
crosswise of the coaches, the aisle being on
the side instead of the centre. These form
staterooms similar to those of first-class
steamboats. Each coach has a reading and
smoking room, and attract ou the whole,
much attention.
As the train came purling up to the depot,
the platform was thronged by
a vast crowd eager to get a look
of the gifted people. The principals of the
company were conveyed In close carriages to
the Nicollet house, when they were assigned
comfortable quarters, while the lesser people
and chorus members were divided among
the other hotels. All day the rotunda of the
Nicollet was crowded with citizens, who
were desirous of seeing Col. Mapleson,
Galassi, Ardili or other celebrities.
La Sounambula, presented by a really first
class Grand Italian Opera company, headed
by one of the greatest artists of the world,
Mme. Gerster, was a revelation. Unfortu
uately the house was not packed, yet it was
what is generally termed a full house, the
gallery and balcony seats being all occupied,
besides most of the eligible standing room of
the lower house being in demand. In the
cast there were Gerster, Vaterga,
Vicini, Cherubini, Rinaldini and Bieletto. As
a matter of course Mme. Gerster was the
center of attraction, although the honors
were shared by Signor Vicini, tenor, and
Cherubini, basso. Vicini is a much better
vocalist than actor. The chorus was strong
and grand, and the orchestra superb. The
audience was enthusiastic in its expression
of appreciation as the finer passages of the
opera were sung. Mme. Gerster was repeat
edlv called before the curtain, and in the
final, "ah nan guinge," her grandeur, ex
quisite execution aud clear, faultless voice

no bounds, the audience insisting upon a re

Todd County Poor House Burned.
I Special Telegram to the Globe. |
Long Prairie, Feb. 14.—The house upon
the Todd county poor farm took fire at ten
o'clock Tuesday night, from a defective
chimney and burned to the goound with its
contents. There was no insurance. At the
time only two families were dwelling in
the house. The county commissioners have
reprehensibly neglected the poor farm and
its unfortunate tenants, and the institution
has for some time been without an overseer.
The Dude and the Dog.
[Boston Post.J
He was a dude of the extreme kind. He
couldn't have been more so. His overcoat
was short, his undereoat long, his collar high,
his trousers so tight that it would seem he
must have greased his legs to get into them,
his shoes pointed. As he entered the reading
room at the hotel everybody looked at him,
and a smile went round. There was a brin
dle dog in the room at the time. As the dude
paused at the news stand the dog went up to
him, sniffed of him, looked up at him once
and walked away with drooping tail and an
air of intense disgust. The disgust probably
arose from the fact that the dude wasn't the
person the dog was looking for, but the ani
mals whole appearance seemed to say:
"This let's me out. I can't stand that
thing!" And the crowd howled with laugh

[Special telegram to the Globe.]
Mankato, Feb. 14.—The morning session
was opened by a paper from Mr. O. C. Gregg,
of Camden, Minn., on the topic of "Minne
sota as a Dairy State." Mr. Gregg said that
he came as a farmer from a country farm
and would speak from his own experience of
twelve years. Minnesota was a natural
dairy state, first because it was a grass state.
Wild grasses grew in abundance and most
luxuriantly. Minnesota is an oat state. It is
the best crop for the sod for the first crop
that can be found. Barley and rye are nat
ural and good crops, and although we are
out of the natural corn belt and must select
oar seed and choose our time for planting
with greet care, yet we are not any more apt
to have a recurrence of an 1888 failure than
we are to have a cyclone repeated. Minne
sota is a healthy state. If disease among
cattle was discovered it could be generally,
if not always, traced to the negl'
gence of the owner. The butchers could
testify to tbe healthy livers of Minnesota stock.
The extreme rigor of Minnesota winters had
been urged as a reason why dairying was not
likely to be a success in Minnesota. He had
had no trouble in this respect. All that was
necessary was a warm stable, which could be
easily secured. Then: were four requisites.
A good roof, pine board sides, battened on
the inside—mortared above the plates, and
' well bunked at the base. It should be well
lighted with windows south and east, and be
well ventilated.
Now he proposed to turn the cold
of our Minnesota winters into
account for dairying purposes. It gives the
cows a good appetite, and unless they con
sumed food and water in considerable quan
tities tin y would not produce milk in large
quantities. All would agree that winter was
the best season for dairying. The cold killed
the tlies and other insects which are such a
drawback to summer dairying. Then, too,
In the winter butter can be more safely and
cheaply transported. He had found winter
dairying much more successful.
Mr. Gregg was questioned with a great de
gree of interest by a number of practical
fanners, aud gave a minute description of
his home stable and the way he eared for his
The second paper was read by the Hon.
Hiram Smith, of Sheboygan Falls. Wis., ex
president of the Northwestern Dairymen's
association, upon the topic that "Present and
future success in dairying consists iu lessen
ing the cost of the production of milk, butter
and cheese."
After a very interesting account of how
dairying should be done he said:
To sum up the whole matter. It resolves
itself into this proposition, that a farm that
will support forty cows, needlessly exposed
to out door storms and indoor cold, would
with the same feed in warm stables and pro
tected from storms without, be ample to feed
forty-live cows. If the average receipts from
such cows annually should only be $35 per
cow, the five additional cows would make
$175 annually. If this same farm will sup
port forty-five cows, mainly on pasture grass,
hay, corn fodder and straw, it would if
part of the pasture and part of the
meadow were devoted to fodder corn
and field corn, and fed to the cows, together
with the purchase of twenty-two tons of bran
and five tons of oil meal, costing about $375,
would amply support fifty cows and at the
same time increase the production of
milk, not less than $10 per cow, a net gain
ou live additional cows of $175, and an addi
tional gain on the production of $10 per cow,
on fifty cows—by the proper mixture of feed
would amount to $500, together with $175
gained by the change would amount to a to
tal gain of $850, less the bran and oil meal
bought, $375 or to a net gain of
$475. This sjain is obtained by the sub
stituting of warm stubles for cold ones, and
by tbe proper mixture of feed. Exclusive of
the cost of bran aud oil meal bought in order
to make the proper mixture, add to this the
gain of winter over summer dairyiugas fol
lows : A farm that will support fifty cows
that produce an average of 45,000 pounds of
milk per cow, while engaged in summer
dairying this milk would be worth not ex
ceeding ninety cents per 100 pounds, on
225,000 pounds of milk would amount to $2,
025, while the samd farm, same cows and
same feed, if engaged in winter dairying,
would produce the same amount of milk,
worth not often less than $1.33 per 100
pounds or a total on 225,000 pounds
of milk of $2,992, a gain for winter dairying
over summer dairying of $967, which added
to the former gain of $475, obtained from
warm stables and properly mixed feed, makes
a total gain for modern dairying over the old
system of $ 1,442, a sum larger than the
original receipts from the same farm.
This is no fancy sketch or fine spun theory
made out of the wild guesses of amateurs,
but the statements above are actual transac
tions in my own experience in the past
twelve years In bringing a farm of 300 acres
that would hardly support forty cows the year
round, until it now supports fifty-seven cows,
by adding a liberal supply of bran and oil
dairymen's organization for southern
A number of gentlemen were drawn out
by the contents of this paper, and a very
spirited and lively discussion ensued, which
consumed the rest of the morning hour.
After adjournment the dairymen of south
western Minnesota, organized a special
meeting, by the selection of Judge Burchard
of Marshall, Lyon county, as chairman, for
the purpose of the organization of a dairy
men's board of trade for southwestern Min
nesota, with its headquarters at Mankato.
Mr. Noe, president of the Mankato city
board of trade, who introduced the subject
and who has been corresponding with dairy
men in this section, after a little discussion
and some remarks by Col. McGllncey, of the
Elgin board of trade, moved the following
resolution, which was enthusiastically adopt
Resolved, That it is the sense of this meet
ing that the time has now fully come for the

A resolution for the appointment of a com
mittee of five on organization was adopted.
Afternoon Session.
The afternoon session was introduced by
the reading of a paper by J. G. Lumbard, of
Chicago, entitled: "Legislative Control of the
Railroads." This paper was apparently pre
pared from the railroad standpoint, and evi
dently did not rest easily on the dairmen's
stomach. A resolution calling upon Gen.
Baker, railroad commissioner, to reply, was
so amended as to request Gen. Baker to pre
pare a paper to be published in the report,
and it was adopted.
A telegram was here received by Secretary
McGlencey from London, Ont., which read
as foUows:
London, Ont., Feb. 14, 1S84.—The Cana
dian Dairymen's association of western On
tario, now in session at London, Ont., send
greetings and kind expressions of fraternal
regards. Thomas Ballentyne.
A resolution instructing the secretary to
make suitable reply was at once adopted.
The following reply was sent:
Mankato, Feb. 14, 18S4.
To Thomas Ballentyne, secretary of the
Dairymen's association of western Ontario,
London, Ont.: The Northwestern Dairy
men's association of 1,000 delegates accept

The sceond paper of the afternoon was
read by C. B. Beach, of Whitewater, Wiscon
sin, the subject being "Is dairying a better
business for a farmer in a new country than
grain raising*" Among the many good
things this paper contained was the statement
that the first murderer was a grain raiser and
not a dairyman.
The next paper, "The process of dairying
in Wisconsin," was read by D. W. Cartis, of
Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, and was full of
interesting figures and results.
A question handed in by James Murphy,
of Hammond, Wis., was read inquiring
whether a co-operative association could
profitably undertake the construction and
operation of a creamery with 500 cows and as
to what the cost of buildings and machinery
would be,"
Mr. Straight, of Mankato, was called upon
by the president to reply, who said, in his
opinion 500 was too small a number to at
tempt it with, that $3,500 would furnish first
class buildings and equipments, and that his
experience was that co-operative institutions
of this character had not generally proved
Tho paper of J. A. Smith, of Codarburgy
Wis., on "Cheese Production One of the Es
sential factors in General Dairying," was

on the cheese question, and because of its
being unusually entertaining and instruc

Wis., on "The Quality, Shape and Condi
tion of Cheese Best Adapted to Western
Markets." This paper was full
of statistics, figures and information con
cerning cheese making in Sheboygan county,
and what kind of cheese brought the best
price and found the most ready sale. Ques
tions and replies followed this paperof a very
practical and useful nature.
The weather has been rim ply delightful,
and at 0 p. m., as the convention adjourns
to attend the banquet, every face wears a
satislied air. The attendance during the day
has been about 1,000.
The committee ou butter and cheese re
ported the following awards:
The Iliggins cup won last year by William
Fowler of Newport. Minn., was this year
awarded to the Harris Bros., of Springfield,
Wis.; the Mankato board of trade
premium was awarded to O. C. Gregg, of
Camden, Minn.: the second premium to Gil
lis ifc Trennau, Bingham Lake, Minn.; the
MeConnell premium, a velvet shawl, to T. B.
Holmes of Altooua, Minn.; the Greibel prize,
a pair of kid shoes, to Adam Arnold, Man- |
kato, Minn.
The banquet was opened at 6:30 with a few i
appropriate remarks by J. A. Willard of Man- !
kato, who called upon Rev. Mr. Bushnell
to return thanks. The tables were set
in the roller rink underneath the Opera
house, and 600 people sat down to a most el
egant spread prepared by the ladies of Man
kato. At the close of the feast the literary
exercises were opened with music by a male
quartet. The first toast of the eveniug was
•'Our Guests," responded to by Prof. Edward
Searing, of the St. Cloud Normal school, who
welcomed the guests In a most appropriate
and enthusiastic strain. The second toast
was "Our Hosts," responded to by Col. R. P
McGliucey, secretary of the association,in his
usual happy and eloquent strain. The third
toast, "Minnesota, the Youngest
Dairymaid,' response by H. M.
Burchard. The dairy beU was
narrow and well defined. Minnesota was
clearly within that belt, the speaker said, its
latitude soiland peculiar adaptalion rendered
it so. Butter or cheese was not made in
Cuba or in Labrador. The fourth toast,
"The reaper versus the churn," was respond
ed to by Col. Clark W. Thompson, president
Minnesota State Agricultural society, who
proved equal to the occasion as usual. The
fifth toast, "Chips," was responded to by

No journal of Its class has attracted so
much attention during the past twelve
months as the Turf, Field and Farm, pub
lished weekly at 39 and 41 Park Row, New
York. It has discussed breeding theories in
such a way as to make a marked impression
upon the thoughtful public mind and to
draw out the views of many able students of
the problem of reproduction. It has shed a
great dual of light on an important question,
and its opinions have been widely quoted.
Its reports of running and trotting meetings
have been models of clearness and accuracy,
and its Field and Kennel department has
been better than ever. The first bench show,
the first gun trial and the first field trial in
America were given at the suggestion and
under the direction of the Turf, Field and
Farm, and so there is a logical reason for the
paper being recognized as an authority upon
dogs and guns as well as horses. The ath
letic and aquatic champions have signed in
its office articles of agreement for their im
portant matches, and the paper is exten
sively read by men fond of these vigorous
sports. Much space is given to the two
great intellectual games, chess and checkers,
and "on these it speaks with authority. The
dramatie department bears the stamp of
scholarship and originality. The amount of
fresh and original matter published by the
Turf, Field and Farm is astonishing, and it
is gratifying to learn that the circulation
of the paper is rapidly increasing. In ability,
circulation and influence it is second only to
its great rival, the London Field.

Harris was in. a saloon, Watson
accompanied by the Shannons, entered
through a back door. The instant they ar
rived Harris drew a revolver and ordered
them to throw up their hands, at the same
time backing towards the door. Passing out,
he started for his office. He had gone but a
few steps when Watson rushed to the middle
of the street and opened fire on him. At the
same time Shannon ran and also fired. Har
ris began firing at Shannon, who retreated
into the saloon. Harris started to his office
I and procured a Winchester rifle,
but before he could use It,
the officers Interfered and -placed him
under arrest. The examination of Dorn,
two Pruitts, Allison, Lucas, Lanning, Howell
and Dale, is progressing before Circuit Judge

the prisoners. Murphy and Rector repre

derson, Davies and Latta act for the people.
A general feeling of confidence exists that
the examination will be honestly and impar
tially carried out.

Intense excitement prevailed in social cir
cles, in Montreal, owing to the failure of Mr.
Walter Wilson to appear at Christ Church
Cathedral to wed Miss MacDougall. The
social position of the two young people is of
the best, and the wedding guests numbered
the leading people of Montreal. The bride
was ready to go to the church when word was
received by the brother of Mr. Wilson that
he could not marry the lady and had gone to
New York. The painful news was conveyed
to Miss MacDougall, and the cathedral was
closed. She received many telegrams and

nected for many years. Mr. Wilson is In

son for his course was a purely private one,
and he is not at liberty to speak.
