Special Correspondence of the Globe.
Washington, Jan. 31.— One hun
dred years ago next Tuesday, the su
preme court of the United States held
its first meeting, and on Monday next
all of the justices will leave Washing
ton to celebrate its centennial at New
York. The supreme court is now the
most dignified body of men in our gov
ernment. It ranks with congress and
the president in its importance, and the
chief justiceship, lasting as it does for
life, is more desirable than the oilice of
chief executive of the United States.
The business cf the court shows better
than anything else the growth of our
country during the past century. For
the rirst thirty years the supremo court
had practically* nothing to do. .Now it
is I,6oo cases behindhand, and Justice
Miller tells me that the judges work all
day and far into the night. During the
iirst half century of the court's history,
the record of admissionsto the court
wen- recorded in a book not nvich thick
ernor longer than a copy of Harper's
Magazine. Xow. 200 lawyers come be
fore the bar and kiss the little old Bible
upon which they swear to practice
honestly before it, every session and
not infrequently a dozen lawyers are ad
mitted in a single day.
The supreme court of the United
States holds its meetings in a room not
as large as many a country court room.
There are dining rooms in many of the
houses of Washington which have more
lloor space, and the city councils of
towns of 10.000 people demand a bigger
hall. Jt is situated midway between
the house and the senate, mstolf the
busy corridor which runs between. An
old negro, as solemn as Erebus, guards
the door. You ask 'for admission. He
pulls the string, and the door flies noise
lessly open. As it does so another door
opens on the inside, and a moment later
you stand in the presence of the su
preme court of the United Stales.
The whole court wears a comfortable
look and the majority of the judges cor
respond with Shakespeare's definition
of the justice "whose fat, round belly
is with good capon lined." I warrant
you there are no wrinkles in the stom-
Rehs of these men. Those faces shine
with good living and upon each you see
the writing that the owner has not a
single care and that he has for life
I 10,000 a year. Judge Miller there has
received ?250,C00 in salaries irom Uncle
.Sam and Justice Field has carried in
his inside pocket Uncle Sam's good
drafts for *:270,000. Bradley has re
ceived $200,000 from the government,
Harlan $130,000. Gray $1)0,000, and
Blatchford's receipts have amounted to
$so,ooo iii cold cash. Each will receive
$10,000 more for every year that he lives,
and he will get this whether he remains
upon the bench or not. It he leaves it
the government will have to get a new
$10,000 man to take his place, and Uncle
Sam will be out ?20,000. instead of *io,
iiOO, as long as he lives. There is no
doubt that any of these men can make
more than this amount at the law, and
each is well worth the salary paid him.
All have made big fees before they
came here and every one is a man ot
reputation.
Chi.-f Ju-tioe Puller had an income of
tSO.OOO a year in Chicago, when Presi-
'^^zilu^JrhjM^n.
dent Cleveland asked him to leave it
lor 810.500 for life. He is a rich man
outside of his salary, and through his
first marriage he inherited a property
which rents for $20,000 a year. His sec
ond wife is also wealthy, and he has
nothing to fear from the falling off of
the surplus in the national treasury.
Chief Justice Fuller is the shortest man
on the supreme bench. He is not over
five feet seven inches hisrh, and he does
not weizb over 150 pounds. He has,
however, a dignified bearing, and when
he sits in his gown upon the bench, he
looks as big as Justice Gray, who is six
feet five, and who kicks the beam at
800. Judge Fuller has a remarkably
line face. His forehead is high anil
lull, his nose large and straight, his
eyes are blue, and his complexion is of
a colorless white. He has a great inane
of silver- white hair, which Is combed
well up from his classic brow, which
half covers his ears, and which falls
upon the collar of his gown at the back.
He will be fifty-seven years old on the
lih of tli is month, and like most of our
gnat men. be inherits bis most promi
nent Quality of brain through his mother.
She was the daughter of the chief
justice of Maine, Nathan Westou. Ful
ler is a graduate of Bowdoin college,
and he is a man of culture. He studied
law at the Harvard law school, and
after a short practice in Maine removed
to Chicago. He is a fine orator, as well
as a good lawyer, and his oration on
Washington was a surprise to many of
his senatorial friends, will) had rather
underrated him. Chief Justice Fuller
Jives here in one of the finest
houses of the capitol. It is the
big double brick of Senator Van
Wyck. and the interior, by the way
Is much changed by Justice Fuller's
furniture. The chief justice has turned
one of the parlors into a library and the
walls are now lined with a big collect
lon of well-thumbed books. I noted
that the German and the French classics
had a place beside the best of our
English authorities and that the works
of English and American science were
many. Chief Justice Fuller is a man of
broad reading and he has a family of a
wife and seven or eight daughters who
are possessed of considerable literary
tastes. Two of his daughters are now
In Germany at school. He is a fine
after-dinner talker, and Senator Cock
rell calls him the Chauncey Depew of
the West.
Judge Brewer is a nephew of Justice
Field, and this is the first time|in our his
tory that an uncle and nephew have ever
been on the supreme bench at the same
time. An extraordinary vein of legal
brain must have existed among the an
eestora of the Field family. Here is
David Dudley Field for years one of
the greatest lawyers in New York,
Stephen J. Field is on tl;e sipreme
bench, and has been a ju<! c fir more
than a generation. Brewer the son of
Field's sistor, makes a re uta ion in
- Kansas as a lawyer and < niejtolhe
6upreme bench on Ins merit.-.
Justice Brewer was born in Smyrna,
end it is a curious fact Unit Justice
Stephen J. Field spent a part of his boy
hoo.l in Smyrna. His sifter married a
missionary, and at thirteen years of age
she took her brother with her to
Asia Minor. Brewer did not remain in
Asia long enough to have his skin
tanned by the tropics! suns, and when
he was a squawking baby of eleven
months he was brought back to Amer
ica. Both he and Justice Field studied
law with David Dudley Field in New
York, and both went \\-est to practice.
The two men have no features in com
mon. Justice Field is one of the finest
looking men in public life, and Brewer
is also fine looking but of a different
type. Justice Field might pose for a
Venetian doge as he sits wite a black
velvet cap upon his head upon the
bench. He has a high forehead, a full
beam of sable silver, and Ins face is one
of the most classic on the bench. He
is six feet tall, and his great frame
is symmetrically developed. He has,
1 think, grown older in appear
ance since the late Terry epi
sode in California, and it must
have been a terrible annoyance to him.
Judge Field is also a highly cultured
man. He is well read in almost every
branch of literature, and he talks most
entertainingly, lie has broad ideas as
to the future of this country, keeps
himself abreast of public questions, and
is fond of society. His wife is one of
the noted entertainers at Washington,
and the two live together in a fine old
house across the park from and facing
the capital. I don't know much as to
Judge Field's wealth. His brothers are
millionaires, but the justice told me
that his salary was not sufficient to pay
his expenses, and he referred in this to
the immense cost of the travel
ing expenses of a supreme jns
tice. Judge Field crosses the conti
nent once or twice a year, and he
always pays his fare. Justice Brewer
is the youngest man on the bench. He
came to Smyrna as a baby after Field
left it as a boy, and he was born at iust
about the time that justice graduated at
Columbia college, New York. He is
only forty-three years old. He is, 1
judge, about six feet high, has a slight
stoop in his broad shoulders and his
face is dark. He has a broad, full fore
head, black hair, growing thin at the
top, a nose slightly inclined to the Ro
man, and a moustache and chin whis
kers of glossy black. He is a graduate
of Yale and a man of culture. He is
now living at the Arno Hats.
The oldest justice on the bench in
point of service, and one of the ablest
jurists in public life, is Justice Miller.
He is six feet tall, weighs at least 220
pounds and every molecule of his anat
omy is packed with good sense, good

JUSTICE MILLER.
nature and judicial ability. lie thrives
on hard work, and as he sits with a vel
vet cap on his head at the right of Chief
Justice Fuller he forms one of the
classic features of the court. He could
have retired years ago, for he is consid
erably over seventy. He likes his work,
however, and does not intend to become
a nonentity. Judge Miller % was ap
pointed by Lincoln in 1862, and when
Salmon P. Chase died it was thoueht
that he would be made chief justice.
Grant, however, appointed Waite, and
Justice Miller has outlived him and
seen a new man take his place upon the
bench. Justice Miller is said to be well
to do. lie is worth $100,000 or so. He
lives very nicely on Massachusetts ave
nue, and his brick house is on a high
terrace just opposite that of Justice La
mar. Judge Miller is a srood talker. lie
has as many reminiscences as you will
find in Ben Perley Poore's books, and
his good sayings frequently go the
rounds of the capitol. Not long ago in
speaking of one of the most upright
senators he said:
"My dear sir, 1 like you, and 1 want
to say that you are one of the few poli
ticians who in my opinion stand a
chance of being saved. But the good
world won't be crowded with them."
He added as he shook his sober
old head, "It won't be crowded."
Justice Miller was born in Kentucky
seventy-four years ago. He was edu
cated at an academy, and he was espe
cially strong during his schooling in
mathematics and grain mar. He is prob
ably the only man on the bench who is
not a college graduate, but he is, not
withstanding this, a line Latin scholar,
and he mastered this language himself.
He began life as a drug clerk, and stud
ied medicine, and practiced eight years
before he decided to become a lawyer.
He was thirty years old before he was
admitted to the bar, and when he was
appointed on the supreme bench he was
unanimously confirmed by the senate
without His name being referred to any
committee. He is a self-made man all
over, and he ought to bo -f>roud of his
job.
Justice Bradley is another self-made
man. His father was a poor farmer in
. %i jBPJ^S^" 1^^ /
JITBTICE BEAIH.EV.
the interior of New York and young
Bradley's earliest schooling was that of
the country teacher, lie worked in the
summer and went to school in the win
ter until he was sixteen, and after this
he taught country school and practised
surveying. His ambition to be great
sprouted with his being, and a story is
told at Albany how a citizen of that
place when young Bradley was doing
some rather menial work for him asked
him what he intended to do in life. The
future justice was then hardly in his
teens. He was backward with his
answer and said that he hadn't
quite made up his mind whether
he would be the president of the
United States or a judge of the supreme
court. This interested his employer
and he talked further with the boy. He
found him wonderfully well informed,
and he urged him by all means to get a
college education if possible. Judge
Bradley saved enough from his country
school teaching to send himself to col
lege, and he graduated at Rutgers in
1830 at the age of twenty-three. He
practised law at Newark, N. J., for
thirty years before he went upon tne
bench, and he has been serving as a
supreme court justice lor twenty years.
His decisions appear in forty volumes
of the supreme court, and he has a most
wonderful knowledge of English and
American decisions. Justice Bradley has
a remarkably anylytical mind, and he is
one of the most skillful mathematicians
of the present day. He amuses himself
in working out geometric problems for
recreation, and he delights in getting
up calendars showing at what hour the
moon will rise on January or February
2, A. D. 8090. • He likes to figure out
the day of the week on which the Ist of
June, for instance, will occur tor a thou
sand-odd years or so» and he thinks la

ffgures. The origin of his mathemati
cal tastes came from his father's
library. Though the old man was a
poor charcoal burner on a scanty farm,
he had a lot of historical and mathe
matical books, and young Bradley con
quered algebra without a teacher in the
intervals of charcoal burning. His
mechanical and mathematical knowl
edge comes in excellently well
now. It makes him especially strong
in . patent cases which consiitute
about one-fifth of the supreme court
business and his fifty years of working
at the law has made him able to know
by iutuition what the law ought to be.
Judge Bradley is rich. He lives quietly
at Washington, and he has one of the
finest libraries of the capital. He is a
little dried up anatomy of a man not
much over five feet six in height. He
has a big nose, sharp, bright little eyes,
iron gray hair, and a pair of tightly
closed lips. His skin hangs in wrinkles
and all his rat has long since gone to
figures and judicial decisions. He is
seventy-seven years old, but there is
a fair chance for his lasting at least
twenty-three years longer. There is
not much of him to die and when his
soul is disembodied it will not be much
freer than it is now.
It Is different with Justice Gray, who
is over six feet, and who hardly dares to
go into a Washington parlor 'which is
not double-floored. Gray is broad
shouldered, big-boned and rather fine
looking. He dresses in good taste, and
when he went down the river the other
day with President Harrison he wore an
English hunting outfit. He has been
rently married to a daughter of the late
Justice Matthews, and he looks so good
natured that 1 doubt not his wife calls
him Horace. Judge Gray conies from
one of the old families of Massachu
setts, and his grandfather was a Lynn
man who died the richest man in all
New England. One of the sons of this
man, but whether it was Gray's uncle or
not ido not know, left 3.000 rare en
gravings to Harvard college, and left
*10,000 to keep them in order. He left
also $15,000 to found a zoological
museum at Harvard, and Gray's hall at
Harvard is named after him. Gray
graduated at Harvard at the asre of six
teen. He was appointed after the death
of the late Justice Clifford by Pres
ident Arthur. George Boutwell
was a candidate for the place
at the same time, but Arthur is said to
have chosen Gray on the account of the
statement of Senator Hoar, who claimed
that Garfield intended to have ap
pointed him. Gaorge C. Goreham, in
commenting upon the appointment,
said that "it was made on a forged will
of the late James A. Garfield presented
for probate by George F. Hoar." Jus
tice Gray lives very nicely at Washing
ton. He has a big house, with a cave
like entrance, on the corner of Six
teenth and 1 streets. There is probably
agtotslice of his rich grandfather's
wealth still in the family, and this
added to the accumulations of his own
practice and his $10,000 a year ought to
keep the wolf from his door.
Justice Harlan is almost as big a man
as Gray. He comes of a noted Ken
tucky family, and his father was the at
torney general of that state. Harlan
was a graduate of a Kentucky college,
was a colonel in the Union army and he
was a member of the Louisiana com
mission that was appointed by Presi
dent Hayes. He succeeded David Davis
as justice of the supreme court, and his
health is so good that he promises to be
on the bench for many years to come.
He is one of the fiuest-looking meu in
public life. Over six feet in height, he
has a great dome of head, a Websterian
nose, and he walks with the dignity of a
king. His wife is also fine looking, and
the two are marked figures wherever
they appear together. Justice Harlan
has a hue brick villa on the heights
above Fourteenth street, and from his
windows he can overlook the whole of
Washington and the winding valley of
the Potomac.
Justice Blatchford comes of a race of
lawyers. His father was for years the
American counsel fo*r the Bank of Ens
land, and later for the Bank of the
United States. He was a warm per
sonal friend of Daniel Webster, and he
was one of the executors of his will. Jus
tice Blatchford himself was the private
secretary of William 11. Seward. and he
was afterwards one of SewanFs law
partners. lie had made a fortune before
he came here to Washington, and now
JUSTICE FIELD.
at seventy he is rich and occupies a dig
nified position with a $10,000 salary. He
is an example of the fact that greatness
does not go by pounds and feet. He is
under medium height and weighs in the
neighborhood of 150 pounds. He has
rather a flat face without much color in
it. His white whiskers fringe his
throat and inch their way up his
cheeks to a line ending with the base of
his chin where they are cut short by the
razor. His hair is of frosted silver," and
he is, on the whole,a rather fine looking
man. He has a big brick house on the
comer of Farraeat Square and X street,
just above the big brown'stone of Sen
ator Palmer, and not far from Viunie
Ream's artistic home.
Justice Lamar takes to the gown nat
urally, and he has become reconciled to
the immense pile of work which the
court lias before it. At first he gorged
himself with cases like an anaconda
gorges itself with a carcass, but he has
now gotten down to laboring about ten
hours a day and devoting the remainder
of his time to other matters. Lamar is
a curious intellectuality. Irregularity
is the order with him. He eats at all
sorts of hours and he can, 1 am told,
work for twenty-four hours at a stretch
and then so to bfid and sleep for twen
ty-four hours more with the in
nocent recuperating slumbers of a
baby. He thinks as irregularly
as he eats and works, and m the midst
of a pateat case his mind will sometimes
fly oil' into abstruse calculations "Upon
the limitations of the inlinite" questions
of the Trinity, or the Shakspeare versus
Bacon controversy. It comes back.
! .JUSTICE T-AMAK.
however, all right within a few mo
ments, and takes up the thread of the
case so easily that the other judges do
not know that it has been away. Jus
tice Lamar is a great newspaper reader.
He has the curious faculty of remem
bering bits of newspaper poetry, and
he can quote ridiculous little pieces
S&tteisd. from, ttw- <UlUe»- .oL-tb^
last half century. He is a man
of . great scholarship, and the
record of. his life is more that of a
scholar than that of a politician, lie
was professor of law at the University
of .Oxford, Mississippi, in IS7I, and his
stock of classical learning is very great.
He is an admirer of Ptato, and can
quote from Thuycidides, Herodotus and
Livy. His favorite poets are Shelley
and Keats, and he is very fond of quot
ing poetry in private conversation with
lovers of the : poets. He . was married
again about* three years ago, and
his last wife was well to do.
Justice . Lamar himself is worth
less than $50,000. He has a farm
in Mississippi upon which there are
many fine Jersey cattle, up to his
appointment as justice he liked nothing
better than his Mississippi home. Now,
however, he finds it impossible to pay :
much atteutiou to it. and I understand
that he would sell it if he could. He is
already sixty-five years of age. His
place upon the bench gives him a resi
dence at Washington for a number of
years. He has a house here on Massa
chusetts avenue, and the $10,000 which
he gets, from the government moves
him further away from Mississippi than
he has ever been before.'

A. PERFECTLY 1 AMK GROUSE.
How It Was Found Starving in an
Untcnanted House.
I recently witnessed a strange, and to
me an almost unprecedented, sight, viz.,
a perfectly tame, full-grown ruffled
grouse, says a writer in Forest and
Stream. It is a fine large male bird. lat
first, in passing the window on the street,
tin-ought it a skilled specimen of the tax
idermist's art. 1 stopped, went into the
store, and, upon inquiring of the propri
etor, learned its history.- It was an ac
quisition of but a few days' possession.
He found it in almost an expiring state
from starvation in an unoccupied house
in the suburbs of our city.
You know of the wild, frenzied flight
of these birds in autumn, frequently
dashing themselves to death against
houses or windows; several have been
thus killed in our city this season. This
one seems to have dashed through a win
dow of a deserted house, and not being
able to find its way out, was almost in
articulo mortis when picked up. With
much difficutly it was restored. A drop
of water was inserted in its mouth, then
a bit of grape pulp, and so little by little
nourished until the bird now feeds
kindly and confidently from the hand.
It is almot oniniverous in its tastes,
takes clover leaves, raw cabbage, grape,
apple, parched corn, or what is known
as "pop corn," corn, birch bud, etc.
Solitary, silent starvation seems to have
annihilated the wild, unconquerable
instinct.

HOLMES' LA. TEST POEM.
[To the eleven ladies who presented me with
the silver loving cup, Aug. 29, 1889.]
"Who gave this cup:' The secret thou
wouldst steal
Its brimming flood forbids it to revenl :
No mortal's eye shall read it till he first
; Cool the red throat of thirst.
If on the golden floor one draught remain.
Trust me, thy careful search will be in vain:
Kot till the bowl is emptied shalt thou know
The names enrolled below. .
Deeper than Truth lies buried in her well
Those modest names the graven letters spell
Hide from the sight ; but wait, and thou Ehalt
see
Who the good angels bo
Whose bounty glistens in the bounteous gift
That friendly hands to loving lips Khali lift;
Turn the fair goblet when its floor is dry —
Their names shall meet thine eye.
Count thou their number on the beads of
heaven —
Alas ! the clustered Pleiads are but seven ;
Kay, the nine sister Muses arc too few
The Graces must add two.
"For whom this gif ti" : For one who all too
long
Clings to his bough among the groves of
song;
Autumn's last leaf, that spreads its faded
wing r - --:->
To greet a second spring.
Dear friends, kind friends, whatever the cup
may hold, -
Bathing its burnished depths, will change to
, gold; . ••■• - ,-- . .
Its last bright drops let thirsty Maenads drain;
Its fragrance hill remain.
Better love's perfume in the empty bowl -
Than wine's nepenthe for the aching soul; :
Sweeter than song that ever poet sung,
>- LLflaakes an old heart young.

narrow again to-day. The opening was
quite firm, and, on the strength of fair ex
port clearances, there was a slight gain. This
did not hold, however, and heavy selling by
the some clique in this market caused prices
to drop back to last night's figures. The de
liveries this moruing were very light— said to
be less than 50,000 bushels. Liverpool sent
bearish cables with spot wheat lower. At
the '"close ' Liverpool quoted spot Va penny
lower. There was some fair outside bull
news. Export clearances of wheat and
flour from the three Atlantic ports were
about 300,00;). Liverpool decreased its
stock of wheat 327.000 bushels for the
month and only increased in flour 9,000
sacks. Stocks in country elevators in the
Northwest are now 8,355,000 bushels, or
over 1,001,000 decrease. May wheat opened
at 7fc'3!ic here and held at7s>%c for some time
with liberal offerings. Later Partridge sold
heavily, and May yielded to 7Si->©7B
%c, and after a slight rally dropped back to
78V2C. July sold at 77Uc and off to 7ti^4C.
Receipts here were fifty-live cars, with
twenty-three cars No. 2. Wheat closed
heavy at the bottom prices of the day for all
futures. Deliveries on February contracts
were light. Less than 75,000 by wheat
wentrouud. Deliveries of corn were 50,-
-000 bu; pork, 2, 000 to 3.' 00 bbls, and lard
8.000 to lu,ooo tics. Receipts were 19
cars winter wheat, 36 cars spring, 177 cars
corn, and 1 80 cars oats. Withdrawals from
store were 511 bu winter wheat, 20.920 bu
spring, and 18.210 bu corn. Corn— Receipts,
177 cars: withdrawn from store, 18,210 bu.
Market steady early but weaker later, closing
14c lower. Deliveries were 500,000 bu.
Oats— Receipts, 180 c:.rs; withdrawals from
store, none. Market dull and unchanged at
the close. Provisions opened easier, but im
proved under a fair demand and closed at
2V<[email protected] higher. Deliveries were only or
dinary— to 3,00 bbls pork and 8,000
to 10,000 trcs lard.

The stock market was dull to-day, but iv
the matter of business compared favorably •
with any Saturday session lor the past two
months," and though the movements in the
list were confined to small fractions only, the
market continued to show a broadening
tendency accompanied Dy a steady though
■ Blow_ hardening of values. The bears
: are ,-.„ believed to have made ; no
important attempt to . cover . the
'large- amount of • shorts put out
earlier In the week, and as the effect of the
! bank troubles seems to have about disap
peared, the smaller buyers begin to appear,
and the improvement of values is again
under way. The bears in the first hour cir
culated the report of some accident assur
ance association being in trouble, but no con
firmation of the report was had and it ob
tained little credence and had no appreciable
influence upon the course of prices. The
only stocks which came into prominence
were New England, Reading and Lackawan
na, the buying in both being conspicuously
by the same parties who have been active in
supporting them of late. .In neither was the
movemeuts for more than small tractions,
•and. the rest ,of the list were,
as -a -rule, stagnant. - The • Chicago
& Eastern Illinois stocks, however, were*
marked exceptions to this rule, the circula
tion of the report that no dividend would be
paid in March having the effect of sending
the preferred down 4Vj per cent and the com
mon 2V2. The preferred rallied somewhat,
but the common closed at its lowest figure.
The market opened steady, and after a slight
advance retired again, but later rallied . and
closed firm, though dull, generally at the best
prices of the dao. The final changes are gen
erally slight and Irregular, but the Chicago &
East Illinois common lost 2ii> and the pre
ferred 3. Railroad bonds, with the exception
of the Texas ■ Pacific 2ds, were . quiet and
steady to ■ firm, though ■ the ; market
showed but little feature, and the
final changes ; are of • slight < importance.
The Texas Pacific 2ds contributed
$115,000 to the day's total of 5855,000. The
sales of bonds ; for : the week aggregated
89,823,000 against $9,520,000 for.last week.
The Post says: Speculation in New Eng
land is strong owing to its good earnings. Of
course it Is manipulated, as it has been all
for the time a year or two, but there really
«wnj! nmc-xeason iov encouragement . now
113 regard to Its future than heretofore. Lack
awana is strong, partly on tne prospects of
increased earnings as the -result of • ;ts new
connections west of Buffalo, and Reading is
strong because there is a large short interest
to bo covered. .Lake Shore and the other
. vamierbihs ate strong because they are the
mo ?l Prosperous roads in the United States
and their stocks are being absorved for in
vestment. Richmond Terminal is stronger
because all of its lines are doing well and
neither the common nor the preferred stock
has had any rise for over a year. The course
of the market through January was generally
towards higher prices, bnt was subject to so
many reactions that while the majority of
• stocks were higher at the close of . the month
than at the beginning, the gains were gen
erally very small. The only noteworthy ex
ceptions were Louisville & Nashville, "Nor
folk & Western preferred, Evansville & Terre
liaute, Richmond Terminal, Oregon Trans
continental, and Delaware & Hudson, all of I
which advanced from 3 to {> points, and Lake
Shore. Lackawanna, St. Paul preferred, Mis
souri Pacific, Northern Pacific common and
C., C, C. & St. L., which advanced from 1- to
21.2 pbinis. On the other hand. Jersey Cen
tral, San Francisco seconds, preferred, Kan
sas & Texas, and Eastern Illinois, preferred
and common, declined from 2 to 6 points.
Government bonds have been dull and
heavy, state bonds have been neglected.
