Toxkeer, N. V., Sept. 24.— Mr. Elaine, in
company with Chairman Warner and An
drew S. Draper, of the state committee, ar
rived at 9 o'clock this morning. The re
ceived hearty cheers all alone from the hotel
to the cars, where the crowd was kept in
order by the police. The train was made of
three oars, baggage and two drawing room
cars, the Mohawk and Richfield. The rear
platform of the Mohawk was handsomely
decorated with the American colors and
pictures of Blaiue and Logan on the side of
the car. Only about thirty prominent Re
publicans and newspaper men wereon board.
Nearly all crowded into the Blame car and
gave him a cordial welcome. After he en
tered the coach the demands for a speech
were co general that Blame had
to appear on the platform
He shook hands with many, bowed to the
crowd and the train moved out, exploding
twenty-one torpedoes on the track. Biaine
said he had a good night's sleep, felt fresh
and looked cheerful and bright, Among
those on the train were J. D. Warren, A. S.

of the Albany Journal, A. W. Tenney, of
COLD Spbhtos, N. V., Sept. 24. — At Peeks
kill fully 1,500 had gathered. There were
several Sags and banners in the procession
with legends of "Biaine and Logan;" "Pro
tection to Workingmen." As the train
stopped, Biaine turned and said: "Depew,
I don't want you to introduce me here. I
want to Introduce you." At this point
Jas. W. Husied came through the car shout
ing, "Let me through quick," and bounding
to Blame's side introduced him in a jiffy,
while the crowd cheered. Biaine said: "I
am very much obliged to you, gentlemen,
for your cordial greeting, I have heretofore
known much of the hospitality and cordiality
of the Republicans of West Chester county
toward myself, and lam glad to have this
opportunity of thanking yon In person. I
never pass through this beautiful town, in
one of the most beautiful parts of the Hud
son, that Ido not instinctively remember
that among the great things which distinguish
it is the fact that it is the birth place of the
honorable gentleman whom I have the
pleasure of presenting to you."
At lu::t(i the train stopped at Cold Spring,

a band music welcomed the party. A com

At Fishklll one of the largest arrff most
enthusiastic crowds, excepting that at Yon
kei^, was gathered. The batterry fired con-'
Unuously and a uniformed band stood near
the cars. Col. W. S. Dickey, of Newbergh,
Introduced Mr. Blaineaa "Our Next Presi
dent" and the people cheered enthusiastic
ally. Mr. Blame said:
iam greatly please. l to be so cordially
welcomed by the citizens of the Hudson Val
ley and especially of thai part of the valley
which la so rich iv ( patriotic tradition. If
there be any position of the United States
where the people should be naturally and
instinctively patriotic it is that portion which
I see before me, and which must be Inspired
by so many of the most umpiring Incidents
of the revolutionary struggle. Thanking
you . rain, gentlemen, for your very kind
greeting. 1 bid you good-bye."
As th« train started the crowd rushed up to
shake hands. A bare footed boy climbed up
the platform banging on desperately. Blame
quickly took the little fellow extending
band, shook it warmly and the boy dropped
off amid the efcauts of the crowd. At Tom
kin's hat factory, on the outskirts of Plshkill,
the employes were gathered on the roof and
sit all the windows, and a huge sign was dis
played with the words roughly painted,
"Solid for Blame and Logan."
At Poughkecpjie a dense mass of people
thronged the tracks fronting the station,
while the street over the tunnel above was
crowded. It is estimated that 3.0()0 persons
were present. Cannon on the hill side fired
a salute, and a band played as the train
stopped. The police kept the crowd from
the platform. Blame appeared with Mr.
Warren and Mr. V room an, anil cheer after
cheer arose. Mayor White, of Poughkeepsle.
introduced Mr. Blame, who in a brief speech
thanked them for their kind reception.
AtBAXT, Sept. 24. — When the train reached
Hudson the rush .for the train again com
pelled tbe police to keep tbe crowds back
from the train. Chairman Warren and
Draper led Blame to the platfoam. in front
Of which stood a Blaise uniformed club. J.
Kvder Cady, chairman of th« county com
mittee, introduced Blaiue who said:
"I recall with great pleasure a visit I
made to your city twelve years ago, when
I met " not so larje a number
as on the present - occasion,
and I feel an additional pleasure in greeting
you who now extend to me such a cordial
welcome. The journey through your beauti
ful valley this forenoon has been one suc
cession of compliments to me and you add
nottbe least Impressive of the many. I bid
you a cordial farewell.

The train arrived at Albany at 1 :43. The
demonstration at Albany was very largely en
thusiastic A* the train entered the depot
' there was a i»r^e crowd traitine. and in a few
minutes every available foot of space was
% • i
ailed. The people climbed on the tops of
the cars a,nd on the roofs of the depot. A
great many working men were among the
audience. Hon. Hamilton Harris intro
duced Biaine, who was received with great j
cheering, again and again repeated, so that j
he had to stand bowing for quite a time be- !
fore he could get a oJianee to speak. When
order was restored he said :
'•I thank you, citizens of Albany, from the
bottom of my heart for this welcome. I ;
should be more or less than human not to !
be very deeply touched by your cordiality, i
and have nothing to offer in return but my j
sympathies and my thanks. But these I i
give you in full measure, and can only mid i
the wish for your personal prosperity, for the
prosperity of your beautiful and historic city,
the capital of your groat state. Again, gen- j
tleraen, I thank you from my heart and bid I
you good-bye."
Biaine retired amid tremendous cheering.
While Senators Harrison, Tenney, Basted
and others stood ou the platform the crowd
called for a speech from Husted or Ten
ney, so persistently that Harris \
introduced Tenney. When he alluded to j
Biaine as the foremost protectionist in the
Republic, the crowd cheered with unusual
rigor. While Tenney was speaking the ears
moved slowly on amid cries of "go on."
Biaine reappeared at this point and the peo
ple male a rush for the train, trying to climb j
up and shake hands. One man got up on j
the steps in his working clothes and re- i
mained until warned of his danger, when he \
said: "Your honor, I want one shake."
Biaine reached over those about him and
shook his hand and the man jumped off.
At Schenectady the central depot is not
enclosed as at other points, and the public
had access to the train and crowded around
it and cheered as Judge Potter appeared on
the platform. While the students from Un
ion college shouted their heartiest tiger call,
Judge Potter introduced Biaine as our neit
president. Mr. Biaine said:
"I am not only very glad to have the pleas
ure of meeting the people of Schenectady,
but lam much honored in being presented
by your Judge Potter, whom I have long
known and regarded with respect and ad
miration. lam glad to be in the old Dutch
town of Schenectady, which partakes of so
much glory of the old Knickerbocker civili
zation of New York, and which has done so
much for the education and enlightenment
of the country, through that college over
which Eliphalet Nott presided for so long a
period. [Here the college boys'gave the college
Uger with great spirit.] I "thank you again
for the great kindness of this reception, and
I take my leave with a cordial farewell."
Ihisteu was speaking on protection of
American industry when interrupted by the
startiug train.
At Amsterdam a crowd greeted the train
with great cheers. Biaine was presented
and thanked them for the hearty welcome
extended him.
Utica, N. V., Sept. 24. — When the train
entered the depot here every available 6pot
beside the track and in front of the Bagg3
hotel was packed. Biaine was introduced by
Wm. Hackett, of the state committee, and
was loudly cheered. He said:
"I thank you very sincerely, citizens of
Utica, for this cordial greeting and this cor
dial welcome. It is a grand conclusion of a
series of welcomes that I have enjoyed to
day in the Mohawk valley, which have
touched me very deeply with a sense of
gratitude, which I confess to be greatly en
hanced by this large demonstration of
fri.-mily welcome in the city of Utica. In
return I can only express to you my appreci
ation of all the kindness I have received in
the state of New York, my sincere wi«h for
the continued prosperity of your city and
your state, and bij you a cordial good bye."
Theodore M. Pomeroy, A. W. Tenny, James
W. Basted, Howard Carroll and Chauncey
Depew made brief speeches. At the conclu
sion of Tenny's speech the people called for
Biaine. In response he stepped from the
car to the platform, and the crowd cheered

With great cheering. Bbine said:
"Gentlemen, vonr v<rv cordial nee tine
adds one other welcome to the many I have
had since I left the great metropolis of your
state this morning. I can never forget the
great kindness with which 1 have been
treated on my journey through New York
bo far. Nor can I ever forget the welcome
you have given me here to day. I thank you
very sincerely for it, and for all your kind
ness toward me. I know yon will bo pleased
when I present to you it young man whom
I have long* known and esteemed M ■ friend,
Mr. Howard Carroll."
Mr. Carroll made a few remarks.
AT FOKT PLAIN*. * y\,<\/.
At Fort Plain there was another crowd who
cheered loudly as the train slowed up. John
D. Wendell, chairman of the county, com
mittee, introduced Maine, who said:
'•1 can hardly believe, my friends, that
what I have been passing through to-day is a
scene of real life. It lias teemed more like
magic to he whirled through your beautiful
country at the rate of forty miles and hour,
every lew miles meeting a crowd of welcom
ing blende. I desire from my heart of
hearts to thank you with all possible cordi
ality foe the welcome you give me, to ex
press my wish for you personally and that 1
you may have a continuation of the pros- 1
perity which the slightest glance shows now
surrounds you, and ray hope is that the great
state of New York may be in all her material .
interests posperous in the future us she has
been so abundantly in the past"
As the train moved into Little Falls, a
crowd gathered and rushed after it, and by
the time it had come to a full stop the shops
bad emptied their workmen into the streets.
Titus SLeard, speaker of the assembly, who
lives at Little Falls introduced Blame, who
had to wait for the cheering to stop before he
could be heard. He said:
"The forms of speech In which I can pre
sent my thanks for the civility and kindness
have been almost exhausted in my journey
through New York to-day. But I have had
no reception anywhere more cordial or more
hearty than yours, nor any for which I could
offer "thanks more sincerely. I have had |
a day of unmixed pleasure asil delight, a
pleasure greatly enhanced by tbe evidences
of prosperity, 1 see around me on every side. j
By your beautiful homes and by your smil- i
ing faces, by which I have been everywhere
When the train stopped at Hcrkiraer. E. A.
Brown introduced BUiue. Just as he was
about to speak, some Mm the crowd called
out "Gen. Spinner, Gen. Spinner," and an
old gentleman was seen making hi* way
toward the train. Blame waited and helped
him up over the iron railing, while thepeopie
cheered. When order was restored Blame
said: "I consider it a very happy omen of
my welcome that lam permitted to stand
here beside my old friend whom I have
known long and honored so highly. I thank
you. citizens of Herkimer, for your kind
greeting. I thank you for the succe&sion»of
gracious welcomes I have had to-day, in this
beautiful valley of the Mohawk, and I thank
you ail as citizens of New York for tendering
to me so generously the hospitalities of your
great state. I have nothing to add, except
a^ain to express my pleasure si meethirrhere
."mil wbo has rendered invaluable service
10 hi* country in the past, "requiring great
ability and great integrity."
At Rome, Mr. Prescott, who introduced
Garfleld four years ago. introduced Blame.
The crowd cheered the candidate again and
again. He said: "The day which is now
ended has witnessed a degree of enthusi
asm in the Valley of the Hudson and the val
ley of the Mohawk, which I was entirely nn
preps—4 to expect, and ' for ' the addition
which you make to it I return my very sin
cere thanks."
Syhacdse. Sept. 24. — A grand torchlight
procession here •was the climax. The' whole
city seemed ablaze with torches and tire- j
works, and the entire population seemed to
be on the streets. When the train arrived
most of the clubs were already in line, and
the crowd around the depot was so great it
required much effort on the part of the police
to keep a way open for Blanc's pary and
escort. Snon after arriving at Senator lfe-
Carty's house the company partook of re
freshment, after which Biaine held a sort of
informal reception until brought out on the
balcony by the demauds of the people. At
abeut '.>:3U he set out for the stand, from j
which he was to review the processiou. In |
the carriage with him were his host. Senator
McCarthy. Jas. D. Warren, chairman ot the
state Republican committee, and Rev. Chas.
N. Sims, of the Syracuse university. They
drove to the stand slowly, through a continu- (
ous blaze, of fireworks and illuminations. !
public and private. Mr. Maine stood at the j
front of the stand for over forty minutes ;
bare headed.
He was repeatedly greeted with cheers for j
"our next president" as the procession '
passed. Chancellor Sims was chosen to pre- j
side over the meeting. He spoke of Biaine i
as a man whose words and deeds had be- J
come honorably and inseparably incorpor- I
aUii into tbe history of our nation for the j
last twenty years. One who was recognized |
not only at home, but all over the world, as I
a irreat American citizfn, and who from the
beginning of his career to the present time
had experienced a continuous advance
ment in the political position, and the
confidence and affection of the
American people. He ' reminded
the people of Blaiue's intimate companion
-1 ship an J friendship with G:\rfield, our late
martyred president. In conclusion he said:
''It's my great pleasure, as it is my priv
ilege and honor to present to you a man
whom the American people have in their
| hearts already elected to be their next presi
| dent, the Hon. James G. Biaine. When i
! order was restored Mr. Biaine said: This
vast assemblage is far more eloquent than
any words I could speak. It tells far more
of the popular current and popular drift re
specting public questions, than anything I
could say, and therefore respect
in i; those topics I shall say
nothing, and shall confine myself to simple
but heartful thanks for so much of this i
grand demonstration as may in any degree
be attributed to myself as a personal com
pliment. lam sure, however, that it would
be a great vanity in me to assume more than
a small part of it is so intended. That it was
rather the expression of the people of this no
ble empire state touching the great public
questions which I shall leave others to dis
cuss, when 1 bid you, as I now do, a cordial
good night."
It was almost 11 o'clock when Mr. Biaine
left the stand and returned to Senator Mc-
Carthy's house, where he passed tbe night.
The October States.
Special Telegram to the Globe. |
Nr.w TOSE, Sept. 24. — Three weeks more
will tell the tale. On the 14th of October
West Virginia and Ohio will vote, and upon
the result of the October election will depend
in a great measure the outcome of the great
presidential contest in November. It will be
a grand battle. There could be no more en
joyable a spectacle in the Republic than the
straggle of the two great parties for control.
The light will be uncompromising and unre
lenting. On the one hand it will be Biaine,
beading the mercenary element, the office
holders and the office-seekers, on the other
Cleveland heading the people. On the one
hand there will be money, without stint and
nerve for the rankest political rascality and
debauchery — a fearlessness in party iniquity
and carelessness as to accountability which
follow a long hold of place and power. On
the other Bide will .be the
men who believe they arc
lighting for a great principle, for a better
t_">vcrnraent, for a cleaner administration,
with every federal officer a menace to them
and to the prosperity of the country. It will
be a tight between the politicians trained in
their trade and wielding the power of office,
anu me people in siuruy game against me
men wbo have gained experience at the pop
ular cost. It will be a conflict between a
party of ample resources and men skilled
and unscrupulous in the use of the means
at their command, and a party poor
in purse but inignty in the justice of their
course. The campaign is getting Intensely
interesting, and no man of intelligence can
neglect the question, will the people continue
Republicanism in all its offensiveness, or
will they "turn the rascals out" and give the
true Republican — the Democrats — a chance
to restore the government to honest admin
The elections in Weil Virginia and Ohio
will be the first contests of great magnitude
this year — first indications of the senti
ment that will direct the votes of the peo
ple of the whole country in November. It is
too late now fur either side to avoid the great
responsibilities that attach to the result of
these elections. The Republicans t>egan
early in the campaign to claim West Virginia,
but finding in that state a strong Democratic
bullwark against fraud and corruption in the
elections, they have virtually surrendered
their claims. The effect of the loss' of Ohio
to the Democracy, cannot be so "accurately
estimated, but it would be serious and far
reaching. The Democrats can lose Ohio and
still elect Cleveland. With the 153 votes of
the south. New York and Indiana can supply
all the crape necessary for a respectable Re
publican funeral. Still Ohio is of vast im
portance. Its October vote will have a tre
mendous force in swaying the large waver
ing class of citizens who are influenced in
their suffrage by the appearance of probable
._.':tfui and candid politicians do not
admit that there is a logical doubt about bow
Ohio ought to go. Nothing has happened to
make the Democracy of the state weaker than
they were when they elected George Iloadly
governor. The legislative with great good
i sense has kept its finger* away from the
throats of the people. It has not invaded
private business, and has not interfered with
business prcsperiy. It has attended to the
necessary legislative winces, has promoted
I the interests of the people, has done much to
divest the Democratic party of factional feel
ing and as ieft in tern ol troubles to pester
the Republicans. The importance of Ohio
in the presidential contest has led the lead
ing politicians of the country to closely, cob
sider every matter that might, under other
circumstance?, have only local interest, and
one of tbc principal Democratic encourage
ments is the eminent respectibility of its
Democratic government.
Hoadly was elected governor last year on
a total Tote only about 6,000 less than the
largest vote ever polled in the state. His ad
ministration has been a wise and upright
one, and has offended no fair-minded man.
: There is no sound reason for a change of
I state administration. The Republicans can
! promise the people nothing better than the
! Democrats haTe done. They offer nothing
''■ but a continuation of a party power in fed
j eral affairs that has wearied the people, and
| which, especially during the last four years,
I bristled with reasons for a radical change.
The advices the Democratic national com
i mittee have from Ohio are highly encourag
ing. The prospects appear to be that the
prohibition vote will be extremely large, and
in every twenty prohibition votes nineteen
win be drawn from the Republican party.
There is no evidence of defection" of Irish
voters from the Democratic candidates in
Ohio. The action of Gov. Hoadly during the
mining troubles has been carefully watched
and has met with the most hearty approval.
There is no good reason for conceding Ohio
to the Republicans. There is every incentive
to Democratic effort, and if ; the Democrats
of Ohio know their advantages .as well as
they seem to be known' here and improve
them with the zeal that becomes a just
cause, the Republicans will jbe "knocked
out" on the skirmish line.
The People's Party.
. Worcester, Mass., Sept. — The con
vention of the People's party was called to
order by Col. A. C. Drinkwater, who wel
comed the delegation to the first convention
of the People's party and the true Democratic
party of the country. He welcomed all, no
matter what their former political affiliation
might have been, and then . alluded to the
"wonderful campaign" made by Butler last
year, notwithstanding all of the opposition
concentrated upon him by self-constituted
leaders of the Democratic party, the press
and the pulpit. " These self-constituted
leaders," said Drinkwater, "ask us to follow
them this year, when they admit they were
wrong last year. It is mere : presumption to
say to the representatives of the People's
party they are wrong in advocating the elec
tion of Butler. We have met to lay the
foundations of a party that has come to stay,
and one which will yet be successful." -
It having been announced that Butler
would reach Worcester at noon, it was moved
that the convention adjourn in time to pro
ceed to the depot in a body to escort their
candidate to the hall. The motion prevailed
and its adoption was followed by cheering.
John W. Galvin, of Boston, was elected
temporary secretary. The chairman then
announced the committee on credentials, the
committee for permanent organization and
the formation of a state committee were ap
Col. Clark, of Boston, called attention to
the premature publication of the platform to j
be submitted to the convention, moved the j
appointment of a committee on resolutions. }
A committee was appointed to nominate a j
state ticket. Quinn, of the committee on i
credentials, reported twenty-one , cities and \
207 towns represented by 1,489 delegates, i
The report was accepted, At noon the con- |
journed until 2p. m. and 1,500 J delegates
marched to the depot and escorted Gen.
Butler to the Bay State house amid great
enthusiasm. The committee on resolutions
met immediately after the adjournment and
is still in session.
On reassembling Judge McCafferty was
unanimously nominated for governor. The
ticket was completed as follows: Lieut,
governor, John Marsh ; secretary of state,
Col. John P. Sweeney; treasurer, Nathaniel
S. Cushing; auditor, Israel W. Andrews;
attorney general, Col. Thomas W. Clark.
The platform of this first convention of
the People's party found premature publica
tion, and therefore neither was crisp nor
fresh when read to the assembled delegates.
The platform is in harmony with the declara
tion of principles made at Indianapolis, and
with the letter of acceptance of Gen. Butler,
also- with his subsequent speeches. The
committee on resolutions, however, gave a
measure of newness of original proclama
tion by adding thereunto resolution sreaflirni
ing the platform of Gen. Butler at Chicago,
demanding a law making employers liable
for accidents caused by neglect to supply ap
pliances for safety from machinery and fire.
Also a resolution demanding the enforce
ment of the national eight hour law, and
frequent payment of employes- by corpora
tions. Also a resolution demanding the re
peal of the tax qualification .of a voter.and
the repeal of all unjust and unnecessary re
striction in the methods of registration and
enactment of the compulsory secret ballot
law. The convention having finished its
labors, Gen. Butler entered and delivered an
. Oor. Cleveland at Work.

New York, Sept 24.— There is a good
deal of gossip and annoyance in the Repub

president is having a cosy time of it out in
New Jersey with the Frelinghnysens. . He

speculative way, and on tbe morning board
the course of everything except lard was
downward, with continued nervousness and
considerable irregularity in grain and an un
satisfactory condition of trade generally.
Corn, though still the leading deal and an
object of anxiety to a large portion of the
members, lost considerable of its strength, !
and wheat, in spite of a good many favoring
factors, was weaker. On the afternoon
board September corn broke still more, but
wheat, under the influence of better foreign
advices, recovered itself and finally closed
about %c better than the last figures yester
day. Lard and ribs also recovered them
selves, and at the close showed a gain for
the day. The closing figures of October op
tions on the afternoon board were: Wheat.
I 77)^, an advance of %c; corn stV!^c, a de
i cline of l^c; (September closed at 71J-^c, a
decline of 4}^c) ; oats 25jj£c,a decline of %c;
pork $111, a decline of $1 ; lard $7.60, a gain
of 22}.< c; ribs $10.30, an advance of 17}£c.
As far as actual trading is concerned
wheat was the leading article on the list. It
was, however, only moderately active, and,
in spite of favorable cables and threatening
weather, was weak. This was mainly due to
les3 encouraging reports as to prices in New
York, to tbe absence of outside bu3 - ing sup
port and to the reports of heavy receipts at
Minneapolis and Duluth. The opening was
firmer and higher, with the bulls on the
aggressive and the shorts covering freely.
But about the time the timid ones had filled
the statement of visible supply, as compiled
by the New York statistician, was received,
showing an increase of over 2,000,000
bushels, and as no one wanted to buy the
market became weak, and some heavy sell
ing was done by parties who had bought at
lower prices. Among those buying early
were Nat Jones, N. B. Ream, Bliss and a
small crowd of brokers who have been set
down as among the most prominent bears,
while the heaviest sales were made through
the Adams brokers. The receipts aggregated
165 cars, against 448 yesterday, and the with
drawals from store were 53,330, against 101,
--000 bushels yesterday. October opened %c
higher at 77 ' 4 c, receded to 76,V£c, and closed
on the morning board at 76% c, but was
active in the afternoon, upon favorable re
ports from France, and went up lc, closing
at 77>.<c. November opened at 79>4'c, went
down lc and then up again in the afternoon,
and closed at 7.» :i ,< .
A report comes from Buffalo that dealers
interested have shipped by rail in the last
forty-eight hours about 55,000 bushels of
wheat consigned to parties in Cbicacro. It
is designed to help out the shorts for Septem
ber delivery.
"There id nothing in the legitimate situation, "
said Frank Kennett., "but the low price to tempt
investor*, but it would be very easy for a clique
to put wheat up 5 or Me, and it looks as though
a combination had been formed to do it."
. Jlilmine & Hodman say: -'The buyers of late
are quick to jump at any profits that may appear
on their holdings. No one seems to have faith
enough in the stuff to hold it against weak
markets. Ordinarily at low prices speculators will
boy markets down, edding to their line and re
ducing their averages, but this reason all dealers
seem ready to run at the first signs of weakness
from any quarter. Wheat must eet a niore con-
I fident feeling behind it, if we are to . have any
i material or permanent advance. It looks very
I weak still and we think it liable to sell lower."
Corn was very nervous and business was
comparatively light, operators being afraid
to do much, as the belief seems to.be general
among them that the September deal is about
closed up, and they were evidently awaiting
further developments. It is not easy, how
' ever, to guess the plans of the manipulators.
If they were through squeezing September
it is not likely that they would be standing
in the pit paying a high price eacli morninz
for upward of 200,000 bushels of cash corn.
There must certainly be a large shortage — a
very laige shortage — or this process would
not pay. Judging from the narrowness with
which certain large houses watch the con
duct of the cash corn corner and the patience
with which they stand around eyeing Ms-
Henry, it is likely that the situation
is like this: The big shorts argue
that this buying of high-priced cash
corn is expensive and that anybody is likely
to grow tired of it They live in hopes that
so much corn may come in that the clique
may get tired and drop the deal. It is evi
dence, however, that the men in control
either feel very sure of their position, or are
showing a weak front, for they offered Sep
tember down from 76c to 73c, and there was
one sale of 5,000 bushels late in the day at
71}£c. There was but little done publicly,
the purchases being all in 5.000 bushel lots,
and whatever was done privately with the
ring is of course impossible to iearn. Mc-
Henry was on hand as bland and as good
! natured as yesterday. Pretty nearly all the !
faces seen yesterday were there this morning.
Schwartz & Dapee hod just as full a repre
sentation, rather giving the lie to the story
yesterday that they had settled their shorts.
Pope was there, too, and .Hobbs' man and
| Bliss again. It was marvelous how panicky
traders were, and how wide a difference
1 there was between cash corn in
' 5.000 bushel lots and corn in car lots.
! White. Pope & Davis were persistently bid
j ding 79c for 5,000 bushel iota, a receiver was
! just as persistently offering a car lot at 73c.
! ■ Tuere was this other particular that the crowd
! stood out on. Little McHenry offered Sep
tember seller the month at 73c. The crowd
) did not want, it at this figure. It wasted
i '< cash, spot cash, but Mr. McHenry did not
want to sell spot cash. He wanted to «ell no
\ corn for September that would stand a chance
' of being pat back to aim. The buying was
i principally done in the morning by Wheeler
& . Gregory, MeCrea. Ramsey, Baker, Poole,
Weare, Barns and Pope A Davis, bat later
in the day there was considerable selling,
! led by Canther," Bangs, Earn merer, Mead &
Beach" Dwight & Gillette, MeFarlzne, Culver

A, M. Wright & C». say: "The ■ bulls, who
have heretofore been difficult to approach when
the shorts desired to settle, were to-day as gentle
as lambs and exceedingly accommodating in re
gard to terms. Buyers were slow, and any con
siderable pressure to realize would' have brought
a much larger decline. ' There . were ~ numerous
rumors afloat as to the extent of the deal, few of
which had any real foundation, ? There are, how
ever, strong reasons for thinking that the . bull
clique, who have added another, chapter to the
history of corners on 'change, would like to be
out of the deal. The futures beyond this month
were weaker and suffered a decline, and we still
adhere to oar previously expressed opinion, that
sales for the next two months when ' made on
bulges are likely to pay a profit." ■ .
McCormick, Kennett & Day say: "It is gen
erally believed the deal will be carried through
October,' and our information, , obtained from a
source usually reliable^ confirms tlfe opinion, but
of course the clique will let go if they find it to
their interest," ■
The provision market generally was quiet,
the most active article on the speculative list
being lard for October delivery. The open- v
ing was steady at a shade under yesterday's
close, but the course of prices was steadily
upward, the highest point reached being 30c
above the opening, and the close was 25c
higher, at $7.60. Other options were neg
lected, and November closed at $7.27}£,
7}<>c above yesterday's close and this morn
ing's opening. Pork was weak, and the
October option fell off . $1, closing at $16,
while year fell off 12^c, closing at $11.85. .
Ribs were dull and . 5c weaker
on the morning session, but
strengthened up in the afternoon to $10.30
for September, a gain of 12}£c, October gain
ing 17}^c.
Oats were easier and dull, with prices sell
ing off %@}{c per bushel under free offer
ings. The close was at 25}£c for October
and 29c for May. •
The cattle market remains rather unsettled,
with prices not at all satisfactory for sellers,
and [email protected] lower than last week on com
mon to fair natives and westerns. Light
Texans, such as are wanted for the canning
trade, are scarce, and have not declined in
the same proportion as the more heavy sorts.
The receipts to-day included ISO care of
westerns and about 70 cars of Texans. The
current quotations for rangers are about as
follows: Texans [email protected], Texas bulls
and tailings [email protected], Montana [email protected]
4.75. A drove of Montana natives sold at
$5.50, and a drove of half breeds , at $4.75.
Bulls and tailings [email protected]; Wyoming
and Colorados [email protected]; bulls,' cows and

Receipts of hogs were moderate and the
quality was not up to the average, hence the
best assorted heavy and choice Philadelphia*
commanded a premium, selling a shade
higher. White mixed medium and common
sold a shade lower. There was a fair demand
and the chances were that but few would be
left. Cemmon packers sold at $5.10(a>5.25;
good mixed, [email protected]; the best heavy,

Chicago, Sept. 24. — New York Exchange
dropped below par to-day, selling at 25c dis
count. There was but little done in docu
mentary sterliug, ' which was quoted at
$4.80%. The associated bank clearings
were $0,949,000. Money is reported in good
supply at s>£@6 per cent, on call and 7 per
cent, on time favors, with little doing in the
way of loans.

Milwaukee, Wis., Sept. 24. — Wheat has
been active to-day, breaking lc from the
early firmness and then advancing sharply
again this evening on rumored higher cables,
finally closing [email protected]%c higher than yesterday.
We doubt if any advance will be sustained
from the fact of accumulating supplies, al
though the general trade is disposed to the
bull side. Corn is irregular, closing [email protected]
lower lor October and .November. We quote
wheat closing: October 75%, November
77% c. - Wall & Bioelow.

New Yoiik, Sept. 24. — Stocks were marked
up about 1 percent, or so in the early deal
ings, but the advance showed no stability
and brought out such free offer
ings that during the closing hour prices
were as low, and in some cases lower than .
at the finish last evening. That the earnings
of Northwestern for the third week in Sep
tember show a decrease of $90,000 was
known early, but bad llitle effect at the time.
The St. Paul & Omaha diminished only a
few hundred dollars. The bears were qiiite
demonstrative, and tried to make as much
capital as possible out of the unconfirmed
rumors of yesterday. The Vanderbilts were
reported as sellers of stocks. Michigan Cen
tral fell from 64 to 60 on a few sales, art
Canada Southern lost a few points.
Delaware <fc Lackawanna, after opening at
167 was marked up and very well held. The
trading on Northern Pacific preferred was the
feature of the day, with a decline in it at one
time of about 3 per cent. The officials of
the company say the negotiations for its
lease of Oregon Navigation company have
terminated, as it was found impracticable to
lease the latter property on the terms of
fered. It is current gossip that the Union
Pacific will soon get control of the Oregon
Railway & Navigation company, and brokers
Infer that if the Union Pacific secures
this company with its valuable finances its
stock must go up. The market closed rather
tame, with hardly any rally from the lowest
figures. Liquidation continues from day
to-day and the outlook at present gives but
little encouragement to holders of stocks.
They must possess their souls with patience.
Henry Clews says that the market is in such
a condition that no one can tell what the
next five minutes will bring, about.
Woe rishoffer and his following are engaged
in a tremendous effort to put prices down,
while S. V. White and bi3 adherents are as
earnestly trying to bull the ■ market. The
outcome, It is claimed, will depend upon
! which party is the strongest. vlt is claimed
that the earnings of the roads will steadily
improve from now on, and this gives an
undercurrent of strength to the market.
