[Special Teleeram to the Globe.T
Chicago, Jan. 22.—The grain and pro

prices of most of the articles failing to show
material change in either direction. The
foreign wheat markets were quoted quiet and
Steady and eastern markets were without en
couragement to buyers. light re

shipping demand for higher grades
being the only sustaining features.
Opening sales were a shade over yesterday's
close, and the hears, seeing that further im
provement wouiJ sobject them to deliver on
calls sold last evening at near the market,
commenced hammering prices and secured
a decline of ; <,e, hoping thereby to Increase

aud, finding the maiket sharply resisted !
their efforts to depress values, many of lhe

causing a rally of ;.>.';rje, which, however.

Ear.v in the day advices from the northwest
sluted that the Northwestern Milling associa

added extra strength to the market here, >^'c
b.-ing added to the May option. The expres
sion, "Somebody is uud'-r this wheat," was
frequently heurd, aud up^ar.-ntly the bulls
had the best of the tight. But the beors were
not idle, making dctd-rmiued efforts to force
dowu prices, although the resistance of the
market oil-red to repeated efforts to main
tain a severe depreciation, and the fact that
pric.-s were well sustained without the as
sistance of factors of an unusual cbar-
Nter, wis rather regarded ns a
proof uf Increased strength basyd on Intrin

equally divided as to opinions of the future.

Chicago, Jau. 22.—There was only a nom
inal and routine activity at the banks t >-«'.ay
and as long as this extremely cold weather
bangs on nothing better can be looked for.
People do business at this temperature simply
because they are compelled, not because they
want to. There is, however, no perceptible |
weakening at any point, but pure and una- j
dulterated dullness is the predominant char- j
acteristie of the situation. Ne.v York exchange J
was quoted at par, with a i'zht outside de
mand. Orders for currency shipments were
| few and small and the receipts the same.
I The bank clearings were £5,000,000 against
j 15,077,000 yesterday.
fPoecial Teleerain to the Globe. ]
New York, Jan. 22.—There was rather j
more activity in the stock market to-day |
than yesterday, although the situation still j
continues dull. The opening was weak aB j
around. New York Central fell off %, I
Northwestern %, ;. t. Paul % and Lake Shore j
%. This weakness was followed later l.y a
slight advance, which was maintained to the j
close. Contrary to expectation, Wnttera
Union was the strongest in the list and was
j well supported by the grangers, which came J
prominently to the fore about midday. It is
a matter of surprise to many that stocks i
should hold their own so firmly in the face
of the present railroad war, but the explana
tion is to be found In Jay Gould. Just at
present he Is helped along somewhat by the
laige short iuterest out. The present pro
gramme, as far as It can be ascertained
from external indications, is to force shorts
into cover, put up prices with a wboop, sell
out near the top, and gracefully retire with
the protits. It remains to h,- seen whether
the scheme can be worked. President
Mitchell, of the St. Paul, has gone west. The
next dividend on that stock has not yet been
agreed upon, but it is already conceded that
it will not be 3'i ocr cent, semi-annually a*
her. to:..re, and it miv be passed altogether.
In Philadelphia the agent* of the Pennsyl
vania roa-1 are off-ring to take westbound
freight St par IUJ pounds lt-.-» than other
lines. Tne policy of Lickawanna now is to I
fight for its share of the freight and e..al
business, and make tpoctel rates with ship- ]
per*. The Hem fort C.-utral will probably |
meet the cut on emigrant ratja made by tbe
Pennsylvania and West S:iore, as It Is th';
policy of the Centml to follow the
West Shore In any rate it might make. T.ie
officials of the latter rand are vow in consul
tation as to what a.-tiou they si ul i talc • to
meet reductions made by other competing
lines and alto/ -ther the situ .tion is oue of
great complication an J vexation to general
■anagen and serbios lues to stock ho;d.-rs.
T.i-.- eiuigraut sale from Him burg to C;ii
■ v . bns be m cut to $0, which is $2 cheaper
than yest.-rd iv's figures. There are many '
better -rs In a bet'er stale of fhingj later on,
thougii the outlo >k fora rather uninterest
ing vi irket for the next thirty d ivs is rather
encouraging Just now. Tue |nal dealings
developed no new feature. Tue market
dragged its slow length along and closed
rather firm, with final quota.lous showing a
slight change for the better.

Washington, Jan. 2t>.—The senatorial
fights in various parts of the country and
their effect upon political matters, continue
to be a subject of a good deal of atteution.
The greatest interest bus centered in the
New York tight. Now tbat It is over, the
friends of President Arthur are claiming it
as a victory for him. There seems to be no
doubt that his friends, and probably the pres
ident himself, were glad to see Mr. Morton
beaten. There was a feeling that the course
of Morton in permitting the use of his name
and influence in the early part of the contest
against President Arthur was, to say the
least, a bad taste. Some people call it po- i
litical treachery. Perhaps it was. If so, it I
was quite a good thing that Mr. Morton was j
beaten. It is always whispered that Mr.
Blame took a lively interest in the Morton
eampaigr. und the result is that the Arthur
people are the mure joyful over the result.
The quiet ending of the contest in Rhode
Island, almost before it began, in the selec
tion of Mr. Chace, the present member of
the house, for the position so long filled by
Senator Anthony, was one which gave great i
satisfaction here. Mr. Chace is very quii-t, I
very intelligent and an entirely unassuming
Quaker of perhaps fifty years of age. lie is I
n..t at all ashamed of his Quaker faith, I
though not making a special parade. He
talks with the thees and thous peculiar to the I
Qoakera of whom we were accustomed to
hear long ago. It Is really Interesting to hear
Mr. Chace and Beu Butterworth lv personal ;
conversation. They use unadorned, whit j
the Quakers term the plain language, and in
all the simplicity of the fathers, and
grandfathers, too, for that matter.
Mr. Chace wears a teculiarly cut coat, a
sort of cross between a swallow tail
and the sort usually Worn by Episcopal eler- '
trymeu, a standing collar, und a broad :
brimmed slouch hat. Sometimes he ex- j
changes the latter for a plug, which makes \
him look eTen tnller and more slender, for I
he is probably the slimmest man In congress
physically. Mentally, howi-v>-r, be is very
vi-_r.ir.u9. It is really amusing to see him in
the house when the tariff comes up. He is
not demonstrative, but he Is vigilant. He
watches cvi rv movement of the enemy, and I
•ry statement made. When his turn
com>'« he calmly takes up the various argu- i
meats offered and dissects them. Then he
waits and mildly suggests, in his peaceful,
Quaker way, that perhaps the gentleman wbo
made tbe speech which be has just men
tioned would like to say something in re
sponse, lie lays a theoretical chip
un hia Quak.-r shoulder and dares
the free trader* to knock it
off. but they seldom do. It takes a brave
man, one well grounded ln the theory of
fre>- tr.ele. to be willing to tackle Chaee, or
else it takea one who does not know him. He
It iiiit demonstrative in his ways, does not

Tht caWtet mat-rs aad breakers bare
called a lull in tbeir occupation and no new
rumors now crop out. It is believed, how
ever, tbat Mr. Bayard has failed In his de
mand to be assigned to the treasury depart
ment and that be will not be a member of
the cabinet ln any position. The absence of
a day or two from the city of Senator Gar
land leaves an impression among his friends
tbat he has again gone to Albany. Others
say he has gone to his own state of Arkan
sas. The chances are, however, that be has
gone to see the president elect. One rumor
Is that the president is averse to giving the
department of justice to a southern man and
that he has sent for Garland to offer bim the
department of state. It is somewhat Irrita
ting to a number of senators that tbe presi
dent elect has not asked their views touching
bis cabinet. No one seems to have any idea
of his intentions, and, if any senator has the
confidence of the new president, he holds
bis counsel well. So far as is now known,
it Is not the Intention of Mr. Cleveland to
come to Washington until the Ist of March.
MR3. STANLEY MATTHEWS DT.kT).
Washington, Jan. 22.— Mrs. Mary A.

ciate justice of the supreme court of the

The Oregon Central land forfeiture bill, the
I senate amendments to which were concurred
: in by the house to-day, Is the first forfeiture
' bill to pass both houses of the present con-
I grrss. It is substantially the same as the
' bill originally prepared by the Astoria ohara
| ber of commerce, with the additional amend-
I ment, offered in the bouse by Mr. George,
j wiib the purpose of protecting settlers. It
forfeits all unearned lands between Forest
Grove and Astoria.
Attbe secret session of the Woman Suf
frage association to-day, Mrs. Blake, chair
man ofthe committee on plan of work, made
a report, which was adopted,3reooramending
i that the women of the several states labor

! Tue wnrk before congress for a sixteenth
amendment is tobe Continued. The women
| iv the several states are al»o requested to op
[ pose the re-election of senators and repre
sentatives voting against woman suffrage.
The vice presidents of the association were
requested to obtain, If possible, the passage
I of resolutions by tbeir respective state legis
latures recommending to congress the adop
! tion of a sixteenth amendment. The ques-
I tion of municipal suffrage was discussed at
some length. It was stated that school suf
frage had been granted iv twelve states. The
resolution which caused wsrm discussion at
yesterday's public session was Informally
iaid aside until the next annual meeling.
At the public meeting this afternoon, ad
dresses were made by'Mba. BU«gs, of Kansas,
Clara B. Colby, of Nebraska, and Dr. Alice
B. Stockbatn, of Chicago, aud reports were

The board of supervising Inspectors of
steam vessels began its annual session in
this city to-day. After lho transaction of
routine business, tbe board discussed the bill
before cougress providing for the repeal of
section 4,4i9, rijvlsed statutes, concerning
the use of steam registers on boilers. Tue
same questlou was submitted to ti.e lioar.l at
the Utxl session aud disapproved because it
was believed the effrct of the repeal of tbe |
statute would be to compel the use of certal n i
steam registering cauges on every steam- \
boat. The same view of the matter was
taken to-day. A proposition Is p-udi'ig be
fore the board to smead the rule prohibiting
passenger* from entering the pilot houses of
steamers while under wav so the rule shall

and that no right of dower accrued to said
Sarah Althea, and tbat she be enjoined from
