A STAGNANT MARKET. The Day's Doings in Provisions and Grain Devoid of In teresting Features. Wheat Unsettled and Fluctuating "With a Bearish Outlook—Flour in Poor Demand. hard Moderately Active ami Irregular—Tlogs Opened Weak But Rallied Under the Demand of the Shorts. Northern Pacific the Feature of the Day iv Wall Street—Bullish Indi cations Contiauit CHICAGO. [Special Telegram to the Globe/) Chicago, Feb. 15.—Operations on 'change to-day iveae devoid of any particularly Inter esting features. Only a fair activity was ap parent, and that mostly in local circles, with no large or otherwise extraordinary transac tions. A sort of stagnation, particularly noticeable id grain, seemed to be the result ►f yesterday's heavy sales. The weakness In corn was partially due to continued sales by country dealers. Hewevcr it very soon became known that receipts for the day would be unusually light, .so corn, with the other markets, gradually strengthened up and all closed quite bullish at the highest points. The greater portion of the corn now ar riving comes over the Wabash, the district tributary to which is nearly exhausted. Con sequently the bulls in the corn pit are be ginning to outnumber the bears by a large majority. Corn was controlled by the same manipulator that engineered other articles, opening weak and lower and advancing 1 Mo. n response to the improvemedt in wheat md provisions, and closing weak on 'change |t lc over the extreme inside prices of the lession. At the opening there was a rush to •ell by big and little operators. No. 2 opened at 59% c and tnstantly fell to S'J'^c, when a demand from the shorts and free buying by scalpers for a reaction started prices upward. The provision crowd who wanted to help hog products by bulling grain, ids') boughl freely, and No. 2, which sold early at 50^@59%c rallied and after re peated fluctuations sold al oo'fe and closed on change at 60J£c. About the only legiti mate support was the decrease in the Inspec tion of 144 ears from yesterday, to-day's re turns showing only 300 ears, of which 51 were contract. This, however, should not be considered, as nearly all of the corn earn ing roads continue to decline to bring in when consigned to Chicago elevators. The heaviest buyers outside the provision crowd were, DavidDowes & Co.,Schwartz & Dupee, Geo, Eldridgt& Co., Geo. Brown and Ham merer. On the call the weakness was so pronounced that Geo. Eldridge bid and got about lot), 000 bushels, which sustained the market. There was reported to-day a sale of corn for September delivery at 03. Then was a good deal of changing options ahead, and July appeared to become quite a favorite option. Wheat was unsettled, 'liietuating frequent ly between narrow limits. It ipened weak with May at 100' X md salus were made at that price at Sl.OfjK, $1.00% aud one at $1 The market went up to §1.00%, down to $1.00% audihenup to $firstname.lastname@example.org%, and closed, after many fluctuations, weak at §1.01 sel ler's option. The only reason for any strength in wheat other than the manipula tion of the provision crowd, was the report thai a central Illinois miller had bought 850,000 bushels of red wheat in St. Louis. Wh n the crowd took hold on this report the manipulators fed them very easily. May Wui .a closed ou call and curb at Sl.OU.f. Pork showed its customary fluctuations. The receipts of hogs were reported at 10,000, which was fully up to the anticipations. The quality of the hogs was better, and at the opening the feeling in products was weak. First sales were at $18.17}£@18.30 for May. or 60c per barrel under the opening. Sales rallied under a demand from the shorts and the manipulations of packers, and sold at $18.62%, and after repeated fluctuations, closed on 'change at $email@example.com%. Lard was moderately active on speculative account aud the feeling feverish. It opened weak, with pork, appreciated 15c per 100 lbs, and was irregular, the trading being purely of a scalping character. May opened at $10.07}^, sold up to $10.25, and closed on 'change at $10.20. Short-rib sides sympathized with the other articles and opened s(aloe lower, but, under a demand lo cover shorts, sold up 15@20c, and closed at about the highest price. There was no shipping demand for any class of meats ex cept pickled hams and shoulders. On the "curb" the May optious closed: Pork, $18.52%; lard, $10.17%; ribs, $9.77%. Robert Lindblom & Co. say: "Wheat Dpened weak, but under a good demand from shorts and others, it gradually advanced, and closed 3.< c higher. French cables were reported weak, and one 6aid it was panicky, but the effect was only momentary, May selling down from $1.01 to $1.00% and theu rallied again. As usual at this season receipts are small and the visible Bupply s decreasing, but at the present rate of decrease we will have more in sight on May Ist than ever before at that date, and what is worse still, we will have an immense stock of spring wheat in Chicago which will be a bar to every bull effort and compel hold ers to pay pawnbrokers rates all the year through. We need war news or crop scares pretty bad. Corn has followed wheat to-day, receipts will probably decrease some, but our advices from Kansas are that farmers have not commenced to sell yet. Like everybody else they hope for firmer prices and hold. They will not do so much longer. Milmine, Bodman & Co., say: "All we hear regarding the growing wheat crop is favorable. There is no real strength in the deal as we can see. We would not advise pur chasers of May corn at over 60c, but think on all such breaks as we have just had ii is safe to take on some for a turn. I think re ceipts will show a material falling off. McCormick, Kennett & Day say: "The weather is very cold throughout the winter wheat section and millers were heavy buyers of cash wheat in St. Lonis to-day. It is a very safe spread to buy wheat in New York or Baltimore and sell here. The present dif ference is about 13c and it will be 18@20c in May. We consider the short side in corn Very dangerous." Crittenden & Harvey say: "We think the early buying orders for wheat were mainly for the east and St. Louis. There is nothing new to offer and sales can be made with con fidence on sharp bulges or purchases on reasonable declines. Prices of corn may have temporary breaks, but we think pur chases made on soft spots will make money." Shepard & Peacock say: "The local feeling among the best class of operators in wheat is gradually strengthing convictions that the long side is best now to stay by." The receipts of cattle for the day were about 1.500 less than for the corresponding day last week, and for the week so far nearly 20,000 more than for the same days last week; the big run yesterday more than made up the shortage of the previous days. The market closed dull last night, all the late ar rivals, some 2,000, being carr.ied over, mak ing a large supply for to-day's market. Under the unexpected receipts yesterday, values declined a strong 15c per 100 on nearly all shipping grades. To-day the market opened steadier, that is, there were more buyers and Jhey were on the market earlier, yet there was no improvement in prices. Salesmen seemed perfectly willing to accept the closing prices of last night. To sum up, fat cattle are 10(a20c lower than on Monday with the chances that they will close out weak; butchers' stock, especially fat cows and bulls are scarce and dear, but the decline in fat cattle may turn the attention of dressed beef buyers in that direction to relieve the pressing demand for cows or fat bulls. The st« k.-r trade is r<ther quiet but prices remain as high a- ever. Receipts of hogs 4,000 to 5,000 less than for the corresponding day last week, yet up to last night were 4.000 more than for the same time last week. The market closed dull last night with some 5,000 to 0,000 in the hands of speculators unsold. Trad': opened this morning with a sudden drop of 10 to 20c on nearly all grades with the great est decline on light. On the decline the market was only moderately active audit was quite certain that t.e 21,000 or 22,000 on sale would not be cleared out. All the regular buyers were going slow and the speculators seem to have lost their ".-and." The general market was dull and prices weak. The receipts of sheep were about the same number as the corresponding day last week, but nearly 4.000 less for the week so far than for same time last week. Fat sheep, either fine or coarse wool, continue to sell at strong prices, the best making $firstname.lastname@example.org. Common, however, are entirely neglected by shippers, being left to the uncertain demand from local dealers. Trade generally, how ever, was fairly active at steady prices. Flour was slow at unchanged prices. There was some demand from local Jobbers who selected a few lots best suited to their trade. Shippers made some, inquiries, but felt disposed to hold off, as they expected to obtain freight engagements next week at lower prices. Bran was rather weaker and denial.d more limited. Corn meal quotable at $13(«!l9 per ton for coarse, and $2.35@ 2.40 per barrel for fine. Corn and oats feed quotable at §17(alS per ton, and rye feed at $15.75. • Chicago Financial. [Special Telegram to the Globe.) CnicAoo, Feb. 15. —Quietness prevails in bank ing circles. Money is in good supply, and us the demand by regular cus tomers or others having the right kind of collat erals, is only moderate, rates rule easy at 5@7 per cent., the general rates being s^*6 per cent.

New YonK, Feb. 15.—Duringthe morning hours the market, while it exhibited very lit tle animation, showed a feeling rather in fa vor of higher prices, especially 7 for Union Pacific, in which the short interest, is yen. large, and it is*predlcted that the shorts will be tendered a sharp twist before many days. The stock loaned at 32 to-day, and has been the principal object of interest, running up in the closing hour to 83^. Rock Island, St. Paul, Louisville and Nashville and North ern Pacific preferred were fairly active and strong and advanced. Lake Shore was firm and other Vanderbilts neglected. West Shore bonds were very irregular. Illinois Central ex-dividend sold off four per cent, on regular aud two per cent. extra. •There was more than usual attention given to best stocks. Eastern Tennessee and Nickel Plate stocks marked up, and showed some ie had been galvanized into them. Lacka wanna, Northern Pacific and St. Paul were talked of for higher prices to-morrow, Brok ers and merchants set 125% bid, 120 asked. The room traders opened up with a savage attack on St. Paul tk, Northwestern, and evidently intended to wreck the balance, but their attempts were futile. Mr. Vanderbilt it is related has an eye on the Rock Island, and is looking over the trans fer books. His action didn't injure the property any. It sold at 125 as against 124% last evening, West Shore bonds were active at about 55 during the morning. There was good buying of Pullman Palace at 112. We consider it the cheapest property on the list at present prices. The closing was strong with every indication that the bulls control the situation and are receiving out side support from day to day. operXatmTnTjeaFolis. Col. Mapleson's Her Majesty's Opera Company in liigoletto. Rlgoletto is acharmingopera, with an ex cellentplot and set to grand music. It intro duced, in the title role, last evening, oue of the greatest baritone voices of the world, that of Sign or Gallasi. Sign or Galassi completely captured the good graces, and enlisted the enthusiasm of the audience, which it is to be regretted, was discouragingly light, when he sang his first few lines: "Casi non E sempre,"and held the vantage to the end. Had our people real ized the magnificence of his voice, the house must have been packed. It was a golden opportunity lost. It is a voice grand in its power, round and full, yet sweet aud in per fect control, and coupled with a free and cor rect execution. Sig. Galassi is an admirable, almost faultless actor, as well, and the meeting of the father and daughter after the abduction, and also the discovery at the end of the opera that the daughter had been murdered iustead of the duke, her faithless lover, as he had plotted, were powerful scenes. Gilda, the daughter, is a new role to M'lle Dotti, it being her first appearance in it, but it was handsomely done. She has a strong and remarkably clear flute-like voice, and her aria "Gualtier Molde Nome di lvi Si Amato" was rapturous ly applauded and secured a double encore. Siguor Antonio (tenor) as the Duke shared liberally the honors of the evening and the Montrose of Sir. Cherubini was excellent. LUCIA DI LAMMERirOOOR? The season closes this afternoon with a farewell Gerster matinee in the rendition of the tragic opera ,by Donizetti, "Lucia di Lammermoor," with Mme. Gerster in the title role, and signor Galassi as "Enrici As ton." "Lucia" is considered one of the grand est efforts of this famous prima donna, and the house will, beyond doubt, be packed to the doors. Excursion trains will arrive from various points, thereby swelling the audience to magnificent proportions. The enthusiasm which must naturally be aroused this after noon will constitute such an eVation as has never before been witnessed in 4he north west.

Continuation of the Inquiry Into the Danville Riots. Some Tall Lying- on Either One Side Or the Other, Bat Nobody Seems to be Able to Determine Which are the Most Adept. "Washington*. Feb. 15.—The investigation of the Danville election riots were resumed this morning. Edward M. Hatcher, (white), denied that he assaulted Jack Rudd the day of the riots. He saw marks of bullets on the buildings in the rear of the white people, which must have been fired by the negros. J. C. Reagan, (white), testified that he saw a crowd of angry negros, and went to a hard ware store and asked for a box of chop axes. He told the clerk there was going to be a knock down fight. The clerk refused to give them. The witness hunted for them, but could not find any, and returned to the scene of the riot, aud was armed with a pistol. Senator Sherman —"Did you fire on that occasion'" Witness —"I don't care to answer that question." Senator Vanee —"You are not required to answer that question unless you choose." Senator Sherman—"l put the question to you, did you fire on that occasion'" Witness —"I decline to answer that ques tion." Witness refused to say how many times he shot into the crowd that day. He thought it was necessary for the white people to fire. R. W. Glass, (colored), was called aud said, he did not feeLeafe in telling what he knew about the riot. Senator Lapham —"Why not?" Witness —"I live in Danville and got to go back there." Witness had heard it said any negro who testified — Senator Vanee —"Oh, we do not Want that Mr. Chairman." Senator Lapham—"l have the right to know the grounds of his fear." The witness being reassured told the story. He heard a pistol fired and rushed to the scene, and found some seventy-five colored men and twenty-five white men. The white men and the policemen were telling the negroes to leave. The negroes replied, "We are not doing anything, why should we leave?" He heard Hatcheifsay: "This is a white man's town, and I am damned if we don't rule you. All are going to get killed if you don't leave." Then the white men drew pistols. The witness named Hatcher, Lee, Covington and Oliver, whom he said had pistols. Lee gave orders to fire, and they did lire. Then the colored men be gan to leave and the whites came out of the opera house. It looked like 300 or 400. They (white's) went into a hardware store and got pistols. He saw pistols, twenty-live or thirty of them, and a bag of cartridges, in a real estate office, where he took refuge, and the white people came iv and supplied them selves. When all the negroes had left wit ness heard the whites going about the street s touting, "Hurrah for the Democrats." [Laughter.] He heard some whites say, "Kill every damned nigger we can see." Heard Henry Barkdale make a speech, in which he said "we intended to carry this election by fair means or foul." Heard him say it was to be carried by the point of the gun. At the time of the riot I saw white men riding home after their guns, and saw no colored men armed. Geo. A. Leap, Tjjhfte, saw several pistols in the hands of the colored people. He believed the first volley was fired into the crowd of negroes. but after the latter began to run a great many shots fired in the air. Saw some eight or ten pistols among the colored men pointed at Taylor and himself, the negroes declaring they should come out and show their faces. If the whites had not used their pistols, we would have been shot into smithereens, sir, and not only that, our wives and sisters would have been murdered iv their houses, sir, murdered in our houses. I know this, by threats made two or three days before by their leader. Senator Sherman, "Did you hear that threat?" Witness—"l did not hear it." Witness couldn't imagine how an excited crowd of people could have shown as much mercy as they, the whites, did. The general remark was, it was the leaders who ought to have been killed and not these poor negroes. The direct cause of the excitement was Simms speech. The original cause was the cold blooded murder of oneef our "best citizens," by our "readjuster, brindle-tailed mayor"— The witness < spent the better part of the day in the real estate office, where the wit ness. Glass, had seen arms and cartridges, aud he saw no arms or cartridges. It was positively not true that men went in there and armed themselves. He was positive there were no arms there. The witness feared the safety of the wives and sisters of the whites, because of threats he heard, that on election day, while the white men were fighting the negroes at the polls the negroes would be murdering the women in their houses. Senator Sherman- "Did you not know that duringthe was the whites left their wives, mothers and daughters uuder the protection of colored men?" Witness—That was bsfore the class of mis chievous men came there to lead the negroes astray. A Jury had passed upon his conduct on November 3d, and complimented him. There were apprehensions of secret burnings. It was the general opinion by the whites in the south, that the colored people, when not mislead, were inoffensive, and there was no animosity. He charged that the conduct of the negroes was attributable to bad advisers. Coalition rule, was the worst rule that any people were ever cursed with. A colored man was not safe in being a Democrat, as colored Democrats were ostra cized, and their wives threatened to leave them. The women had a lodge among them selves for the purpose of keeping the men straight, aud white leaders of the party incul cated that sentiment. The same ostracism did not operate among the whites when they turned Republicans. Charles D. Noel, white, whose quarrel with the negro, Lawson, preceded the general riot, was called as a witness by the chair, and described the difficulty. His story did not vary from that so frequently published. Chas. G. Freeman, white, a policeman of Danville, was called. He was a Democrat. He described the efforts to disperse the crowd of colored men. They replied, they had been mistreated, and were going to have their rights before they left. The witness remarked, "Well,you all just remain here a few minutes and according to all appearances you'll get 'em." Witness saw fifteen or twenty color ed people with pistols. Mathcw P. Jordan, white, was called, and in reply to Senator Sherman, described the riots. Witness was armed. He declined to say whether he fired, and declined for satis factory reasons. Witness bought his pistol three or four days before the riot. Fur chased it for the protection of himself and family. The negroes were turbulent and insolent. Lemon Coleman, colored, had lived in Danville about twenty years. He heard some one cry murder, and he* went toward the scene of the riot, but did not reach it. He was met by a retreating crowd of blacks, and sought safety from the flying bullets in a store. While in there he looked out and saw a white man raise his pistol and fire, and another white man fall. He remarked to the storekeeper: "Dar, a white man has shot another white man." John Stone, colored, said the colored peo ple generally did not vote on election days. He asked a great many to vote, but they re plied, saying, they were not going to be slaughtered. In reply to Senator Vance, the witness said he was not interfered with on election day. Cne man had said something to him which he did not consider pleasant. Senator Sherman asked what it was. , Witness said a plank railing separuted the J white from the colored voters as they went to the ballot box. A white man's dog ran un der the railing, and the white man remarked tohisdorg: ''Come back on this side. You are not a nigger. Don't stay over there with niggers." Adjourned to Monday. THE ADRJANJVIURDER. Further Details of the Coldblooded Murder of a Father by his Children. [Special telegram to the Globe.] Worthingtox, Minn., Feb. 15.—"Willie Riley, the murderer of his father on Feb. 2, near Adrian in this county, was brought in and lodged in jail to-day by Sheriff Miller. Mary Riley, his thirteen-year-old sister, was also brought in aud quarters are being fixed up for her in jail. The boy is very small for his age and it seems almost in credible that children of the age of these should be capable of planiug aud ex ecuting such a crime. The boy confesses that he shot his father while in bed with a bullet prepared by himself, and made by taking lead and hammering it into the proper shape for his gun j which was a doublled barrel shot gun. He shot him through the head and he died instantly. The body was allowed to re main in bed until after dark, when on at tempting to remove it, the children could not get it through the door. They then put the body out through a window and placed it on a sled and conveyed it to the strawstaek where the boy had previously dug a hole in the straw, into which they plunged the body head first. No inquest was held as the coun ty attorney who was present when the coroner arrived advised against it as the children had made confessions. The youngest child re mains at Adrian with the laniily of Mr. Rob erts. Count convenes here on the 4thof March when the case will be disposed of. TnE DEED CLEARED UP.

St. Louis did not give Irving any such reception as did Chi cago, and the same is true of the original porkapolis of the west. Irving not only had larger houses in Chicago, considering the capacity of the place of amusement, but he found it profitable to return and give another week in the Garden city, where he is now playing to audiences which jam the theatre to its utmost limit every evening.

Now, there would be a line-looking party for the Presidential chair. Not that looks are particularly essential. At I the same time, there is a general atmosphere of plug tobacco about General Logan which is not altogether reassuring. He is a massive looking man, but coarse. His black hair is long and lank, his mustache is immense and aggressive. He seems to be a man of rugged power, and he has the stride of a mastodon. His hands are large, his feet leave a track in i snow like a pair of pie-tins, and he has a I voice which is like the hoarse roar of a steam tug's whistle. General Logan has a majestic frown that is the terror of the hall boys, but he is said by those who drink at his expense to be a pretty good sort of a fellow. The !
