The Eastern railway of Minnesota, the ex
tension of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Mani
toba railway, was opened for passenger travel
between Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth and
West Superior, in June, IS*9; so that the
passenger earnings for the period covered
by this report should not properly be com
pared with those of the previous year, when
this competition did not exist. The iucrease
in general travel, and especially the increase
of suburban travel, has almost entirely over
come the loss which wns anticipated on ac
count of the opening of the new passenger
line between St. Paul, Minneapolis and the
lakes. Gross passenger earnings for the
year show only a decrease of 551,702.
The gross earnings of the road for the
year ending June 30th. are: Passenger,
f393,529.62 : freight, $900,303.49: express,

PUJLL.MAN GAINS A VERDICT.
The Vestibule Patent Case De-
cided in His Favor.
Bostoh. Oct. 9.— The vestibule patent
case which the Pullman company has
won in the United States circuit cour
here was against the Boston & Albany
as nominal defendants, but in reality
the Wagner or Vanderbilt interest.
Appeal may be taken to the United
States supreme court for decision some
five years hence, but meanwhile an in
junction in Pullman's favor will issue.
Judge Colt, in his decision, considers
that the first ground of defense, the
want of novelty in view of the prior
state of the art.should not debar a patent
under the law of the United States.as in
this case what it has accomplished hardly
seems the result of mere mechanical
skill. Judge Colt, in his decision,
after describing at length the claims of
the Pullman company, said in connec
tion with the first ground of the de
fense, which is that the patent is void
for want of novelty: "Considering the
amount of thought in the country di
rected towards improvements in rail
way mechanism whereby greater safety
and comfort may be secured to the
traveling public, it hardly seems possi
ble that the Pullman vestibule system
in view of what it has accomplished,
and the immediate recognition ot its
merits was the result of the exer
cise merely of mechanical skill,
and therefore not patentable under
the laws of the United States.
Leaving out the Sessions patent I can
discover nothing in the prior state of
the art which anticipates the Pullman
patent or which should render it void
for want of patentable novelty. Con
cerning the Sessions patent granted to
H. H. Sessions Nov. 15, 1887, which was
applied for two weeks before the Pull
man application was made, and which
the defendants contended describes
what is claimed as the Pullman inven
tion, Judge Colt says that Sessions set
out to solve certain evils incident to a
train of cars, namely to the starting and
stopping of them and to a swaying when
they are moving. On the other hand,
Pullman undertook to overcome the dif
ficulties incident to a ves
tibule connection between cars,
and this he accomplished by
means of flexible or adjustable joints to
permit of suflicienl movement between
individual passenger cars. The court
could not hold Sessions to be the prior
inventor. It would seem to be unjust
for the court by inference to incorporate
the Pullman invention into the Sessions
patent, and thus prevent both inventors
from deriving any benefit from this im
provement, because if the Pullman pat
ent were destroyed. Sessions could de
rive no benefit from the Pullman inven
tion, as he nowhere describes or claims
it in his patent. In conclusion, the
court ordered a decree to be drawn for
complainant as prayed for in the bill.
THROUGH A HIGH MOUNTAIN.
Completion of a Big Railway Tun
nel Near Deadwood.
Special to the Globe.
Dead wood, S. D., Oct. 9.— The crew
engaged in running the tunnel on the
Deadwood extension of the Fre
mont, Elkhorn & Missouri Valley lail
road met to-day, and the tunnel will be
completed in a day or two. The track
is laid up to the tunnel, and track lay
ing will be continued into Deadwood
light away. It is expected that the
trains will be running into Deadwood
by the 20th inst. The tunnel is 'MO feet
in length, and in very hard rock
throughout its entire length. Delays
will bo experienced in building freight
nnd passenger depots in Deadwood,
owing to the several injunction suits
now pending against the company, but
temporary depots will be erected. The
meeting of the crews in the tunnel was
celebrated by invitations being sent out
to prominent citizens, including Sen
ator Moody, Supt. Grler, Judge Thomas
HURONIANS ARE HAPPY.
A New Road to Be in Operation
Special to the Globe".
Huhon, S. D., Oct. 9.— C01. Eiissler,
general manager of the Sioux City &
Forest City railway, arrived home to
day from Pniladelphia, where he pur
chased passenger coaches for his road.
This purchase completes rolling 6tock
sufficient to put the road in operatiou,
and it is expected that trains will be
running regularly between Huron and
Forest City before the close of the pres
ent month. The Chicago & Northwest
ern, by this road, gains a direct line to
the Missouri river, and Col. Hassler
states that the survey for a railroad
from Forest City to Rapid City has
been arranged for and will be made at
once. This encourages the belief that
a bridge across the Missouri river at
Forest City will be built.
LAST SOIiO AS A BOY.
Little Blatehfurd Kavanagh's
Voice Has Changed.
Chicago, Oct. 9.— Blatchford Kav
anagb has sung his last solo as a boy
singer. It was evident last Sunday
morning that the worshipers at Grace
expected some incident of especial in
terest, and it came at the close of the
offertory when the boy rose in his white
vestments and sang with thrilling
pathos, "He Was Despised," from the
"Messian." The child and the au
dience knew it was his last solo as a boy
singer. The emotious ot the hour nearly
everthrew the equipoise, which has al
ways been so distinguishing a trait of his
manner. On the part of the congrega
tion there was no concealment of the
sharp regret that every one felt at the
loss of the boy. The once high voice
has for the last three or four months been
gradually and almost imperceptibly
undergoing the inevitable change until
it is now a contralto, but still of phe
nomenal depth and power. During that
time his songs have been transposed to
meet the progress of the change, and
he has continued singing without in
jury or impaired quality. He could
doubtless continued doing so for some
time, but an invitation from Henry H.
Getty and his daughter, Miss Alice K.
Getty, of 24G1 Prairie avenue, to travel
with them for six months in Europe,
India, Egypt, British Burmah and
Turkey offered so great advantages that
parents and manager gave glad consent,
and young Kavanagn has been with
drawn from tha choir and the concert
The friends of the child have found
him as remarkable a boy as he has been
a phenomenal singer. Some of the in
cidents of his parting with the choir
well illustrated those points of his
character which have endeared him to
all those who have known him as much
as has his singing. Each year there is
awarded to some member of Grace
Church choir a Kold medal for progress
in singing, another for reverent be
havior, another for manliness, and still
another for general excellence in all
things. This highest honor of the choir
was pinned on young Kavanagh's white
surplice but a few months after he
came to sing at Grace. He has worn it
with the most hearty approval of his
mates ever since. At the services Sun
day evening he surrendered thb badge
to Rev. Dr. Locke.
"Well, I know that you could have
worn it with equal honor for many
years," said the doctor, "if you had re
mained with us. lam tilled with sad
ness that the time ha 3 come for us to
part. You have always been good,
obedient.reverent.and above all humble
and modest. You are just what you
were when you began your wonderful
career. Your voice was the gift of
God, and it has beenu sed faithfully in
singine his praises."
And then the choir sang the anthem
"The Lord Prosper You." After the
service the choir presented the boy
with a parchment on which were en
grossed resolutions of love and good
wishes signed by each of the seventy
five members of the choir. There were
other and more substantial presents,
Yesterday his manager. Prof. Henry
U. Roney, handed young Kavanagh a
check for $1,000, which has resulted
from the sale of his photographs, an
other illustration of the public's inter
est. The photographs have been on
sale by several dealers here, who have
charged no profit on the understandine
that the amount realized is to be used
for the boy's education.
"His voice is? not worn out," said
Prof. Roney yesterday, "nor has it been
overtaxed, as reported by the country
papers. He never sane more grandly
than in his farewell solo. So much of
the change as has come and the further
change that is close at hand was only
the inevitable change that no amount of
care could ward off. It will be at least
one year, and perhaps two years, before
it can be accurately determined whether
his man's voice will be as phenomenal
as has been his youth's. He will sing
no more till the change is complete.
He is not going to Europe to study, but
only to take advantage of the oppor
tunity to travel."
Farm House Burglarized— Minor
Events of a Day.
Mr. and Mrs. George McLaugblin, living in
the Oak Park neighborhood, just south of the
city limits, attended prayer meeting Wednes
day evening, and during their absence their
house was burglarized. The thief entered
through a rear window, from which he re
moved a wire screen, and, after thoroughly
rausacking the house, made his exit by way
of the front door. He pulled open all the
bureau drawers and turned nearly everything
tODsy-turvy, but secured notni'ng of value
except Mrs. McLaughlin's wedding ring aud
another ring presented to her on commence
ment day in commemoration of her receut
graduation from the high school.

THE SAINT PAUL DAILr GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 10, 1890.
WHEAT IS UNSETTLED
An Undercurrent Causes Un
easiness and a Highly
Closing Quotations Nearly a
Point Lower Than on
Corn Lower, Oats Steady, All
Manner of Hog: Products
Gains and Losses in the Stock
Market Are Evenly
Chicago, Oct. 9.— The wheat market was a
hesitating one most of the session. Up to the
last naif hour the range was li£c, with 'the
best price of the day at the opening, the low
est price before 11 o'clock, and the greater
part of the business done at about %c under
the close last night. The market took an up
turn of %c over night on the continued wet
weather, which caused light receipts at
nearly all markets. Minneapolis had but 403
cars, Dnluth only 117 and Chicago, but 69.
The knowledge that Hutchinson had taken :
on a lot of wheat at higher* prices yesterday
led many to expect that he would give the
market support. This he did not do. The
scalpers who bought '.on thin opening
market found prices giving way, and they
hastened to sell. Comstock & Brosseau
sold long wheat freely. The sales, by S.
White and Ryder and others were credited to
Hutchinson. The early buying was led by.
Mitchell, Kammerer, Logan & Co., Dunham
& Co. and the scalpers. The weak longs sold
out the firs; hour, fearing Hutchinson's sales
and because of Wall street rumors which had
no possible bearing on the market. As stated
the break from best figures was 1 14 c from
$1.03% to 81.02% for December, and from
$1.07% to $1.<>6% for May. Before noon the
market rallied on the fairly good export
clearances of wheat and flour to $1.03 De
cember, and $1.07>4 May. In the hour which
followed there was a heavy market, with De
cember back to $1.02%, and May at $1.07.
The clearances of flour from Atlantic ports
were given at '33,000 packages New York.
28.000 Philadelphia, and 12,000 bbls
Baltimore. Wheat from New York 16,
--000 bu, Baltimore 24,000. Total from the
three ports equal to about 300,000 bu of
wheat. The pressure of the Hutcbinsonloug
wheat on the market was the mountain that
broke prices. His sales through his own
brokers and half a dozen other sources were
estimated at 1,500,000 to 2,000,000 dv.
Many of the bull houses which bought wheat
early sold out at a loss late in the day. De
cember sold down the. last half hour to
$I.<>2l£, or l%c under the opening price, and
closed at $1.02%, of %c under last night.
May touched; $1.06%, closing at $1.06%.
Puts on December wheat sold on the curb at
$1.01%, and calls at $1.03%. Corn and oats
were neglected, and prices slightly lower in
sympathy with the decline in wheat. The
provision market was dull, and, considering
the weakness in grain circles, it held com
paratively firm. Pork declined 2%@10c;
lard 2%c, and ribs, 2%@5e.

quiet and steady at $1.8114 forsixty-day bills
and $4.86 for demand. The stock market to
day was still more active ' than on any day
this week and was irregular and feverish
from opening to close, with the result of !
leaving the list irregularly changed, the
gains and losses being very evenly balanced,
with • few important changes -- either way. .
The tactics of the bears to-day as well as
yesterday indicate, if anything, that the
market is more heavily oversold than at any
time within the past year. Rumors of
bear origin were afloat yesterday
affecting the credit and standing of well
known houses, and these were supported dv
■ predictions of impending panic. . The action
of the market to-day, if it indicates anything,
shows that the bears are nearly, if not quite,
to the end of their rope, and while further
declines were forced in many stocks any ces
; sation of the pressure was sure to result in a
: rally which was invariably- = accomplished on
. smaller dealings than sufficed to create the
; decline. The street generally was puzzled
over the irregular action of the market, but
the strength shown by Western Union and
Missouri Pacific, especially the former, under
the fierce attacks made : upon them, was in
terpreted as indicating that Mr. Gould and
his friends have been buyers. There was
certainly more support given certain
: stocks than at any time since the present de
pression was started, and the sharpness of
the rallies would indicate that extra efforts
were made to . cover. ? The opening of the
; market - was irregular, but generally lower,
and, with the aid of a better feeling, consid- ;
. erable - strength was ; developed in the early
trading, which resulted in the scoring of ad
vances in many stocks Eof ■ from to % per
•cent. Then unfavorable rumors were circu
lated, accompanied by another flood of short'
bales, so that by noon all the improvement
was wiped out. Later ; the selling became
: more concentrated, and certain stocks were
paid special attention to, with the result that
' before 2 p. m. ' declines had been estab
lished in these shares extending to 4 per
cent. .Most prominent -among them were
, Jersey Central, Illinois Central, Chicago Gas, .
Burlington, Lackawauua, New England and
. Reading Many of the traders, however, for
the past two days, have been working for a
rally, but. heretofore, with but little effect,
but after this raid the support to several
stocks became more apparent, and the advo
cates of a higher range of value tooK fresh
; courage, and a final effort in - the ; last hour
gave better results . than for many weeks.
Not only were the losses in the specially
weak stocks • regained in most cases, but
actual gains over the opening figures were
established in many others. The movement
was still feverish, but the close of the mar
ket was made with the upward movement in
-full swing and on an active business, which
heretofore has been the accompaniment
of the declines only. The final changes are
■ about equally divided between gains and
- losses, but the only ones of importance are
losses of li* in New England and I per cent
:in Wheeling & Lake Erie preferred. Rail
road bonds were again active but unlike the
: share list after a downward movement of
•considerable dimensions in the early trading
: there was no rally to speak of. The sales of
all issues reached $1,336,000, out of which
the Atchisou incomes contributed $260,000.
The Reading issues were conspicuous for
weakness, and the Texas Pacific were like
wise prominent for animation. The final
changes were almost all in the direction of
lower figures, and some . of the more impor
i tant losses were as follows: Burlington, Cedar
Rapids & Northern firsts, 21/2 ■ at 94;
Hocking Valler ss, 3, at 80; the sixes, 1, at
86; lowa Central lets., 2%, at 831&; North
.em Pacific ss, 2i,fe, at B5\& : Richmond & Dan
ville ss, 2i&, at 87^ : Reading lsts, 3%, at
62%, and the 2ds 3, at 42. Governmeut
bonds have been dull and heavy. State
bonds have been entirely neglected. The
Post says: There is not, and has not been,
any reason for the great : decline of : the last
, month, except that a number of speculators
in this market who loaded up with stocks
last spring In expectation of a great rise, as
the result of the silver inflation and the pen
sion and other disbursements of the treasury,
have been disappointed, and sold out. The
stock market has been, and is yet. extremely
narrow, because, owing to the ; great • activity
and general prosperity of the country, capital
has found . profitable employment in other
■ things, and the public, have been too busy
making money, in other things to come
into the stock market yet. But there is noth
ing in the general business or railroad situa
tion to discourage them ; from doing so,.and '
now that the liquidation of the disappointed
speculators is probably about over the stocK
market will look more inviting to outside
capital. Money is no longer an important
factor in the immediate movements of the
stock market. The . Mail and Express .■ in its
financial article says: "A leading banking
house here telegraphed to London -t for the
cause of the • depression there, and
the answer came back . that there had
been considerable ; selling -of.-- stocks :
on the theory that the commercial relations
between Great Britain and the United States
in the future would lead to shipments of gold
- from London to New , York. The total sales

- Excitement in the wheat market was' off
this morning, and though the prices of fut
ures were the same at first as they closed the
night before, the tone was weak. " Many who
would ordinarily be expected, to buy were
doing nothing to speak of or were selling
out a little long wheat. Still, offerings were
not large. The country elevator companies
had hardly any to sell, as their receipts were
not largely In excess of ■ their shipments, and
farmers were storing a good deal of the re
ceipts. The government report is expected
Friday, which had . the effect of - limiting
business, owing to - the uncertainty -of
what it will be. Cables were bet
ter in tone, and by some -the change was as
scribed to failure of several Roumanian ex
porters who were unable to meet their ship
ping contracts. December opened at 98c,
advanced to 98^c, and fell to 97%, and by
noon was up to 9 7VSC. Shortly after 12
o'clock there was further decline in futures,
with a slow and quiet " market. The receipts
;of wheat ; at the four leading spring wheat
points ' to-day were: Minneapolis, 237,740
bu; Duluth. 109,416 bu; Chicago, 24,891
bu ; Milwaukee, 100 bu. The receipts at
the ■■ four principal spring wheat markets
from the beginning of > the crop year to date
were 17,216,802 bu. Clearances to-day were
24,330 bu wheat, 25,670 bu corn and 33,708
Dkgs flour. The " clearances :of wheat and
flour from New York and Baltimore : equal
about 240,000 bu wheat.
. Following were yesterday's closing wheat
' quotations: r No. 1 hard October. 1 $1,0] ; on
track, $1."2; No. 1 northern October, 94i£c;
November, 95V2C; December, 96%@.97c; on
track. 97c; No. 2 northern October, 90c; De
cember, 92iric; on track, 93c ; , May, $1.03>4.
When the first samples came in yesterday
morning such of them as were taken went at
about the previous day's figures, but later the
sellers had to make some concessions to meet
a decline of lc in futures. At one time there
was real dullness, but finally the offerings
went quite well at the small ■ reduction in
prices. . ■ ■; - "GHfIBCHfIMHSf
•- Demand continued of the same : generous
proportion •. as Def ore, the only difference
being that trading : was on a softer market.
• Millers and elevator people were buyine. as
well as agents of outside millers. Con&»«er
ing : the : weakness -in general- markets and
lower figures in the middle . of the day, the
offerings went pretty well. Wheat receipts
for 24 hours were 403 cars, with -108 cars
shipped. Duluth reported 171 cars received

FLOUR AND COARSE GRAINS. ■ <■< -:\
Flour— The ; added •• daily ' output of the
mills grinding yesterday will probably ; ag
gregate 27,200 bbls. .
■In regard to the flour demand the . North-,
.west; Miiler asys: The most activity: was
shown in patents for the Eastern centers.and
while prices have generally ; been advanced
10@15c per bbl. the majority of orders were
at old figures. Sales in New England seemed
to range from - $5.75 to $6, and New York
quotations were close to the same flgures,one
instance being. cited where $6.05 was ob
tained. .: Increased interest has been shown
•in all • grades • for ' export, and ' some quite
large ■ sales of bakers' j have bceu
: made. ; One - concern : • within -- two days
; have ' sold - 260 >, cars .' first ; and • 60 ' cars
second ; bakers' to a London -, firm, at what
were considered favorable , figures. '!• Millers
who have orders on their books complain
: more or less of ' inability to : get shipping di
rections. The export shipments last week
were 52,540 bbls against 35,950 bbls the ere-
ceding weeK. The greater part of these were
bakers', though there was also quite a sprink
ling of patent. . London quotations for 280
lbsc. i. f., are: Patents, 31@33s Cd; bakers',
23®26s 6d; low grades, 13s 6d@l6s 3d.
Bran and Shorts— The feeling was not par
ticularly firm for bran, and sales were made
at about $ll<&ll.'-'5. Shorts were quoted
mostly at $firstname.lastname@example.org, and middlings at
email@example.com, all in bulk. Shipments, 796
Corn— There was a rather easier feeling in
the corn market, though the demand was
not very large and only a few cars sold at 49
@50c. Receipts, 1,830 bu; shipments,none.
.Oats— The demand was good for good heavy
oats with white in most favor. Receipts hold
up fairly with the inquiry, with the situation
seemingly on a good basis for future move
ment. Receipts, 8, 100 ts, 3,600 bu.
Rye— Quiet, and nominally about 54@500
Barley— The demand was rather better and
Dnces a little steadier than a few days ago.
There was considerable inquiry from brewers
in other localities, and sales - through mail i
and sample orders ranging, it was said, from
50c to 60c, but which sellers did not usually
report. Receipts. 3,600 bu; shipments,
3.600 bu. »
Flax— The demand for flax was steady with
sales at $1.42©1.43. Receipts, 3,500 bu;
shipments, 500 bu.
, Feed— Quiet. $firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hay— The movement is light and no great
demand exists, with prices ranging at $6®

No one anticipated a radical : change for the
better yesterday in the live stock markets,
nor was there any. The cattle market whs as I
limp as before, and there was only the ripple
of a reaction in the hog situation, while
sheep simply held their own. The receipts |
of cattle for the expired part of this week are
the largest ever recorded for four consecu
tive days. Hogs, though stronger than at
yesterday's close, were 20@25c lower than at
the opening of trade Tuesday. The market ■
was active, especially on local packing ac- 1

Rivalries of Republicans in Vir
Washington, Oct. 9.— The admlnls,
i tration ami Virginia Republicans are
| growing somewhat anxious about the -
congressional outlook in that state
Thero :. are two rival Republican candi
dates iv the First and Second districts.
Browne, the Republican member from
the First district, had only 400 majority
two years ago, and although Bowden,
in the Second district, had the generous
margin of 6,000 votes, the district is im
periled by, the double candidacy and by
the popularity of the Democratic nom
inee, Dr. John B. Lawson. In the
Fourth ■- district, Langston, who was
finally seated the other day by the her
culean efforts of Speaker Reed and his
lieutenants, will probably ;be nom
inated, and, it so, he will certainly be
i fought to the death by ex-Senator - Ma
hone. Thus three Republican districts
are trembling in the ; balance in ; one
state c alone, not to speak of others in
the South which. wear :a" quite revolu- .
tionary aspect and are causing the party
managers considerable anxiety.
