Conclusion of the proceedings of the
twenty-eighth Brewers' convention.
In an address issued recently the
president and other officers of the Na
tional association say:
"An eventful year has elapsed since
this association met in convention at
Baltimore. During that year we have
achieved many victories at the ballot
box in various parts of the Union; but
we have also suffered many discomfit
ures, prominent among them the de
cision of the supreme court of the
United States sustaining the prohibitory
law of the state of Kansas. Discourag
ing as this decision seemed to be at first
it nevertheless had two
upon this association, inasmuch as it
created a universal desire among
brewers to rentier their national
organization more effective, and
induced more than 100 individ
ual brewers, ami two local as
sociations (California and Peoria) to be
come members of our body. Other oc
currences helped to bring about a still
closer union- than existed before be
tween the local associations; and pres
ent indications warrant the assumption
that the current year will witness a
marked change lor the better in the at
titude ami condition of our trade. It de
pends in a large measure upon the con
vention to be held at St. Paul whether
this expectation will be realized, and we
therefore urge you to be present and aid
us in the work* which it is intended to
Turner hall had been secured by the
local committee for the use of the con
vention, but since that arrangement
was made the hall has been leased for
the new People's theater, and a change
of base was necessary. Consequently
Standard hall has been obtained, and
'the convention will meet at that place.
Among the features provided for the
entertainment of the delegates, who are
of the Uunited States, are a compli
mentary banquet at the Merchants,
where covers will be laid for 500 guests,
and a ride in carriages from St. Paul to
Minneapolis, via Fort Snelling and Min
nehaha falls, the latter feature having
been agreed upon as a fitting finale to
the convention. Prominent among the
questions to be discussed is that of the
labor movement, which acquires addi
tional importance from the fact that the
trade from New York.Chicago and other
cities will bring to the discussion the
advantage of recent practical experience
acquired during the conduct of a lock
The officers of the National associa
tion are: President, William A. Miles;
vice presidents, Henry Clausen. Jr., and
Thies J. Defers; treasurer..!. C. <;.

One of the windows of the reading
room at the Merchants hotel contains a
number of specimens of cereals appro
priately inscribed as being the products
of the state of Oregon, and a large sign
with white letters on a blue background
states that this is the bureau of inform
ation of that state.
Egbert A. Brown, for many years a
telegraph operator and now a represent
ative of the West Shore Magazine, pub
lished at Portland, Or., is in charge of
this bureau, which is conducted under
the auspices of the State Board of Im
migration, who have in view a diffusion
of knowledge concerning the state.
"We pay more attention to circulat
ing literature pertaining to agricultural
products," said Mr. Brown, "because
that is the principal industry of Oregon.
A farmer is very much discouraged if
he does not receive an annual income
of at least $15 for each acre that he has
under cultivation."
*. *
Next in importance comes the raising
of fruit, and the third industry of Ore
gon is its salmon fisheries.
The shipments of wheat and flour
from Portland for 18S7 were 8,478,322
centals of wheat, valued at "14,852,068,
and 457,GG9 barrels of flour, valued at
$1,743,717, the bulk of both having been
Ehipped to Europe.
During the same period the Columbia
river pack of salmon was 375,000 cases,
valued at upwards of 82,000,000, and the
average weight of each salmon caught
by the fishermen was twenty-five
pounds. Portland, the principal town
in the state, has a population exceeding
60,000, and is the largest city on the Pa
cific coast, except San Francisco. Ac
cording to history this town owes its
name to a lucky flip of a penny by the
two first settlers who built houses on its
Bite in 1843. j
One man was from Portland, Me., ;
and his neighbor had formerly resided
at Philadelphia. They were discussing
a name for the new settlement one day,
and to settle the dispute it was agreed
to toss up a penny. Luck favored the
man from Maine, and he -at once be
stowed the name of his native town in
New England upon the frontier settle
ment, and which it still retains.
* *
"Small towns, varying In population
from 10,000 to 3,000 souls, stud the Willa
mette valley, which contains a million
acres of land, most of this territory be
ing under cultivation, and the Columbia
river, before piercing . the Cascade
mountains, flows through and drains a
tract of country more than four times as
large as the Empire state.
"All the products of the temperate
zone can be successfully grown in the
Willamette valley .and the finest-flavored
fruits in the world are raised here; ap
ples, pears, prunes, peaches, plums,
small fruits and melons, the superior
quality of Oregon fruits and vegetables
giving them a preference in the markets
over those packed in the Eastern states
or California. These are but a few of
the features that we are endeavoring to
impress upon the minds of those con
templating emigration to the slope, and
agencies similar to the one 1 have estab
lished here, are located at San Fran
cisco and Tacouia. while two traveling
agents are doing the same kind of work
in the East."
* *
"It has always seemed singular to
me," said W. S. Barrows, of Mandan,
Dak., as he sat in the Kyan rotunda,
"that the Indians of this country who
are noted the world over for their ex
cellence in. beaded work of every de
scription, should be so backward in the
matter of linings for their handiwork.
Here are some samples of work done by
Sioux squaws," and as he spoke he ex
hibited two large pieces of buckskin,
upon which artistically arranged in
squares of variegated colors, were
thousands of the glass beads so much
esteemed by the aborigines. They have
been stitched upon these pieces of
buckskin with deer sinews, and must
have occupied many weary months in
making, and yet these pretty articles
and deafens are lined inside with the
most tawdry and flimsy quality of 10
cent calico.
* #
Incidentally to the conversation it
was ascertained that "Mr. Barrows was
in communication with W. T. Ilor
naday, the taxidermist and naturalist of
the national museum, at Washington,
D. C, as to the best means to be re
sorted to for the protection and pres
ervation of the only herd of buffaloes
left in the United States. Yellowstone
Park, at its southern extremity, is the
temporary home of these animals 1
which formerly roamed in countless
droves over the boundless prairies of the
West, and they do not number more !
than twenty-live all told. including bulls,
cows and calves. Great interest is
manifested in their preservation by the
museum authorities, and the results of
the hunters' experiences will be em
bodied in an exhaustive report, and
sent to the capital for future action in
the matter.
Matters Pertaining to This De
partment of the Army,

ter, Mont., is ordered to assign the

The Vestibule Trains.
The Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha railway was the first to put on
vestibule trains between the Twin
Cities and Chicago. This fact is well
known, but it is repeated here because
of a statement which got into the Globr
last Wednesday, by an oversight, that
to another road belonged this honor. Of
course, a competitor followed the good
example set it as soon as it could; but
this does not detract from the credit
that belongs to the enterprising road
which led in giving the Northwest this
magnificent service.

Wheat was Bobbing Up and Down again
Yesterday, Closing Firm and
Corn was Weak, Oats Strong and Pro

Transactions in the Financial Circles
of Wall Street— General
Special to the Globe.
Chicago, 111., May 25.— The grain markets
were inclined to quietness this morning.
Wheat opened a shade lower, and scalpers
displayed a preference for the short side of
the deal. The tone became firmer, however,
and within half an hour prices were back to
yesterday's closing range, viz: 87%@87%C
for July, 87r>4c for August, and 87"Ac for
December, the last named month being the
least active and the least boyant. Operations
were not on a large scale, and were without
especial significance. At 87V2C Hutchinson
tested the strength of the market by rather
free offerings,and retired not entirely satisfied
with the result of his experience, though
values drooped later. The market
seemed to be getting away from the in
fluence of the big room traders. They can, of
course, make fluctuations, but they experience
difficulty in controlling or directing the i
course of the market. Receipts of cars ag
gregated 790 cars. Frost, Strong & Co.
ottered some corn in the pit, but found buy
ers coy. The market acted weak. The im
mense receipts are testftig the nerve 01 the
bulls. The stuff keeps coming. .It was ex
pected, but the appearance of actual corn is
more formidable than anticipations of re
ceipts. It is here, with a pressing demand to
he taken care of. Oats were strong around
the opening. Provisions were quiet and fea
tureless. July pork opened at $14.45, July
laid at $8.65 and July ribs at 86.77%. The
sensational feature of the day was the
circulation of a report that the McCor
mick Harvester company had published j
an estimate placing the probable yield of ]
Western wheat at 40 percent of a crop. This j
was sufficiently startling to be scattered
broadcast, and in twenty or thirty minutes to !
advance the market l*[email protected]»l%c, July jumping j
from 86*8*10 to BS-*fec, and December to 9L»c.
Then the accuracy of the report was denied,
and the market eased off %c. To arrive at j
the truth, the United Press man called on !
Mr. Butler, manager of the Harvester com- I
pany. That gentleman stated explicitly that 1
the company had issued no crop reports or
estimates. His private views as to the crop I
prospect he did not care to give for publica- j
tion, for the reason that they might be mis- |
leading. The information collected
by the company's agents was for the j
benefit of the company, and was not for the
board of trade or the public. Asked if he
hud expressed in private conversation an
opinion that there would not be more than 40
per cent of a winter wheat crop, Mr. Butler,
smiling, declined to make a reply. Sim- ;
mered down and traced to its source, the re
port was found to arise from a statement of
opinion made by Mr. Butler to Decker
Brown, a piovision broker. So far as the
value of it goes, it may therefore be said to j
have practically the force of an official re- J
port from the Harvester Co., as it represents,
or is believed to represent, the views
of its manager. It it does not, the
United Press is open for a correction.
This, at least was the construction placed
upon it by the crowd, for the market held
steadily and strongly the improvement es
tablished, and closing quotations were near
the top. The Wood harvester concerns
agents' reports of the situation in the leading
winter wheat states are corroborative of the
most radical statements yet made. From the
southwest reports are multiplying of threat
ened ravages from insects. Cables are
stronger and a substantial advance in Cali
fornia wheat is reported. Hutchinson kept
pounding the market from time to time with
out producing the slightest effect. The corn
market ruled dead, weak and lower. Esti
mated receipts for to-morrow are 710 cars.
The market does not stand up under the
load remarkably well, and acts soft. No new
fertures developed in provisions. May oats
advanced 2 cents.. At the afternoon session
there was activity in wheat, corn and oats
with provisions dull and practically un
changed. Wheat declined *igc, corn [email protected]%c

the routine report.
Chicago, May 25. The morning trading on
'change was active in grains and very dull in
provisions. Wheat took the lead in interest
and in strength. The opening prices were
slightly below last night, and, after just a
shade "advance, prices went off quite sharply
for a half hour on realizing by many on yes"
terday's purchases. The decline amounted
to %c in June, ".ic in July, and lc in Decem
ber. The moment the liberal offerings were
over, prices rebounded %®,"*ic. At this op
portune time, the rumor that a harvesting
machine company had reliable advices that
the winter wheat yield in several leading
suites will not be over 40 to 50 per cent of a
crop, was started, and used freely in the pit.
This and other creations caused another 1/2©
3/ic advance, and July sold V-.C over the lowest
point of the morning, while December went
to 90c. The reaction which followed when
the rumor was chased down, was just about
equal to the advance caused by the state
ments. July wheat opened at 87%c,advanced
to S7*j'-C, sold down to 86<tec, up to 88% c,
back to 87-Uc, up to BS*4c, and closed at
87% c. December closed at 89*,4 c. In corn
the local receipts were so large as to over
shadow everything cisc, and caused a lower
range of prices. The receipts to-day were
790 cars, and the estimated for Saturday
was 710 cars. Over 65 per cent of the re
ceipts this morning was graded No. 2: May
sold at 56% cto open and 56% cto close.
July ranged at 56*4 c up to 56% c, down to
55<fec, up to 5Gc, and closed at 55% c. Trad
ing was only moderately active. In oats the
near futures were quite active, while
the most deferred options were rather quiet.
Trading in May was especially active under
a good demand from shorts, and there was
an advance of lc over yesterday's outside
figure. May opened at 36*!4c. and closed at
38S'«. Provisions were weaker, and prices
declined slightly. The weakness in corn
had a depressing feeling among holders of
cured hog products, and although trading
was small, and offerings not excessive, the
marked closed easy at the inside figures

"""New York. May 25.— Clearings, $84,310,
--344: balances, $4,750,449. Money on call
easy at ® 2 per cent; last loan, 1%; closed
at *1%@2. Prime mercantile paper, 4%
®6%; sterling exchange active and steady at
54.56-54 for 60-day bills and $4-88% for"de
mand. The stock market was more active
to-day than on any day for a long time and
showed more decided strength, the result of
the days' trading being a material advance
throughout the entire list. It was rumored
early this morning that the Reading loan
had been finally placed and coupled with
free buying for London account, which was
a comparative novelty, the opening was
made at advances extending to % per cent in
the general list, while Reading was ex
ceptional with a gain of % per cent.
Further small gains were recorded in the
first few minutes, but the traders and bears
soon made up their minds that the reported
placing of the loan was a hoax and they be
gan to hammer the market again in "their
old style. The pressure was specially severe
against Missouri Pacific, and it declined I*4
followed by New .England and St. Paul 1%.
and Jersey Central with 1 per cent, the rest
of the list losing fractional amounts. The
official announcement of the final negoti
ations with the syndicate, however, again
turned the current upward, and before noon
material advances had been made on the
.whole list, Reading at top figure, showing a
gaiuof2-s'B per cent over. its last night's
price. The market had been up to that time
very active, but dullness then succeeded and
some reaction took place, which, however, in
but few cases exceeded fractional amounts.
The decline was checked before delivery
hour and prices again advanced, St. Paul
and Reading being specially active and
strong. The interest in the - deal
ings centered almost entirely in these two
stocks, and, though New England and Union
Pacific were active, their movements were in
unison with the general list, and attracted no
special attention. The weakest spot in the
list was again Fort Worth & Denver, which
dropped two points on a very light business.
There was no further feature to the trading,
however, and in the last half hour the mar
ket became quiet' once more, but ciosed firm
at about the top figures. Northwestern was
subjected to a sharp attack in the early morn
ing, which had for its object the breaking of
the price of the stock, but it was a complete
failure, and later in the day it became dull.
Outside of Fort Worth & Denver, which
1 shows a decline of 1% per cent, everything
on. the active list is materially higher

Canada Southern 1%, New England, St. Paul
preferred and Michigan Central I*3" each,

market did not respond . to the increased
animation in the share" list, but was dull and
quite irregular, with some fluctuations. The
sales amounted to $084, C00. E«st Tennes
see firsts rose 2 per cent to 122, and Wabash
first certificates 2 to 93. Government
bonds were quiet and steady. State bonds
were entirely neglected. The total sales

Flour— The market was in rather better
shape, as the late break in wheat had been
checked and buyers bid more freely. There
is some confidence in wheat at present
values, and flour is as low as wheat. Stocks
do not appear to be burdensome anywhere.
Winter flours are reported held with more
confidence, although they are said to be mov
ing slowly, as the limits of millers are above
the views of most buyers. There are some
sales reported of the middle and lower grades
reported here to go abroad. Patents are go
ing fairly to points west of the Atlantic states.

cars of cattle and two ears of" hogs. The
