Coughs and colds, so common in March, are but

Mrs. Mumlerloh Made Insane by
Her Husband's Illness.
CHICAGO, March 11.— A pitiful story
is told tonight iii connection with the
illness of William 11. Munderlob,
Herman consul at Montreal, Que.,
who was stricken with paralysis
in this city a week ago, when
on his way to California to visit his fam
ily. Mrs. Munderloh was telegraphed
for and arrived here two days ago.
Her husband's condition was crit
ical, and the doctors informed her
that there was absolutely no hope
for his recovery. This information had
a very depressing effect on the un
fortunate wife, and she began to show
signs of mental derangement. Today
she passed into a state of such frenzy
that the physicians in attendance found
It necessary to remove her from the sick
room, and this evening it was found
necessary to place her in a private sani
Sad Results of an Accident on

YOCJJGSTOWX, 0., March 11.— William
and Henry Mattshaw, brothers, aged
| respectively twelve and seven, sons of
William Mattshaw, a farmer residing
near Beloit, this county, while walk
ing on th« railroad tracks on their way
to school this morning were struck by a
Fort Wayne freight train. William was
hurled thirty feet and instantly killed.
Henry had one arm cut off and was
otherwise injured so that he will die.
Their mother, who is in delicate health,
came to the scene of the accident soon
after it happened and was so crazed with
grief that it is thought she cannot re
cover from the shock.

failure causes threat surprise. Tne
house has always bad a high reputation
for Integrity and financial strength,
and the present embarrassment—
which, it is hoped, the asslgneeshlp
will not be able to relieve— regarded
generally as toe result of over-produc

which an active trade would have over
come. One of the most prominent com -
mission merchants in the city stated
•that, so far a* the trade is concerned,
the failure will have much more effect
in Boston than here. For some time
past the firm has nought most of Its

merchants in that city. It is not known
whether or not the linn has much paper

Maritime Men on the Pacific Ex

Sax is( o.March 11.— Maritime
men here are greatly interested in the
construction ot a new freight boat
which is fast reaching completion on
Puget sound. She bids fair, if success
ful, to work a revolution in ocean
navigation. The vessel is being built
by the Pacific Steel Bargt^companv,
the same company that constructed the
Wetmore, lately wrecked at Yaquima
bay. Like the Welmore, the new vessel
will be a whaleback, but she will
be much longer, twice as strong, and
will also carry passengers as well as
freight. She is being provided with
sixty cabins, -and these will be neatly
and comfortably lilted up. She will
be 1(51 feet long, 42 feet beam,
and 26J< feet in depth of hold. The
new and strange vessel is to be called
the Everett, tor the town -where she is
being made. Not much of her will bo
out of the water. In general she
will look like a mat serpent
with only her back showing above the
waves, a few turrets and the port-hole
like places which indicate whera the
cabins are. She will run from
Everett to San Francisco and
thence to Yokohama and lion:: Kong,
back again here and to Everett. She
will be faster than any of the Pacific

St. Louis, March 11.— The Globe-
Democrat this morning says: Arch
bishop Francis Satolli, papal legate to
America, will go to Lincoln, Neb., im
mediately after Easter, and tne object
of his mission is for the first
time made public. His visit it can

that a movement was on foot to transfer
Bishop Bonacum to Cheyenne; Wyo.,
aud this disaffection of sev

this document which has prompted him
to make a Western tour. Incidentally
he will stay at several sees, ami will

Wheat Goes in the Opposite
Direction From What
Was Expected.
On Little Demand May Moves
1 l-2c in Short
All the Bearish Influences
Had No Effect on
Speculation in Stocks on
Wall Street Was Rather
CHICAGO, March 11.- If there was any
doubt about wheat being manipulated
in the Chicago market, that doubt dis
appeared today. The news received
last night from Washington was circu
lated to depress prices, dishearten or
-1 dinary holders.and inaugurate a regular
bear campaign. The trade got all ready
for this, but it did not come. There was
the peculiar sight at the opening of
traders afraid to trade. A few had buy
ing orders, but when they staited in to
get the wheat they found no offerings.
They also felt, or thought they felt, the
hand of the bull clique strong under the
market. .Shorts who hesitated at first
were quiefcly converted into buyers.
Instead of a break of 2c or 8c
and a panicky market, there was
a bound of l},,c, which put the
May price at 7Sc soon after the opening.
This upset all calculations." The im
j petus proved stronger than the govern
ment report, stronger than the shorts,
and more powerful tor the moment than
all bearish influences. Minneapolis
1 had nearly 400 cars. Cnicago receipts,
were 300 cars. The exports for the
week, according to Bradstreel's, were
but 2,894,000 bushels, compared with
3,351,000 bushels lli« week previous,
and 3,754,000 bushels a year ago. Liver
pool wheat was quoted lower. Cash
wheat was offered very freely 4c or
more under the May price, with the
Northwest ready to ship all that can be
cared for and No. 2 Chicago grading
guaranteed. A ll this went for nothing.
A man with a stone about his neck,
swimming with his head above water, :
would nut have been more surprising to
some of the trade with extreme bear
notions on the market.
The feature of the report which nave
the friends of wheat encouragement
was that part which said that the stock
was the most of it in states where it
could hardly be available economically,
the amount in surplus states 'being
small. Yet the fact remains that, count-
Ing the reserve visible and amount on
passage, we" have now the largest per
cent ot the crop in sight for years, if not
ever. The good buying at the start the
crowd attributed to the local clique, as
Eggleslon was buying in Derson for
both May and July. There was heavy
realizing at the advance, under which
prices yielded to about yesterday's
I close, but again recovered. The close
[showed a gain of ,' 4 c over yesterday's
closing figures for the day, and an ad
vance of lie in July.
. Corn and provisions were firm and
closed a trifle higher than on the day

New York, March 11.— Speculation
at the stock exchange was rather quiet,
the dealings amounting to 150.796 shares.
At the opening the market was inclined
to weakness. Heading, however, was
an exception, and moved up about a
point on London buying. A committee
has been appointed to look after the
interests of the income bondholders.
It is stated that it was not organized to
antagonize A. A. McLeod, but simply
to see that the rights of the income
bondholders are preserved. General
Electric was again attached * and forced
down to «J4. the lowest point reached
during the present bear campaign. It
is now stated that an outside company
is to be formed to finance for the
parent concern*. After the early
break nil attempt was made to
cover. The supply of stock proved
smaller than anticipated and a sharp
rally lo lOiiV l "*4 ensued. The bears
also made a raid on St. Paul, Burling
ton «fc Quincy and Lackawanna, de
pressing these stocks ; ! 4 to ]'._. per cent.
The Western shares' were adversely in
fluenced by reports ol railway strikes.
American Sugar sold down to 11? at one
time, and later rallied to 119^. It is un
derstood tint arrangements have been
made to discount the IS per cent divi
dend payable on the common at ii per
cent. The books close March 14, and the
dividend is payable April 2. After the
publication of the bank statement,
which was more favorable than expect
ed, the market enjoyed anally of X to%
per cent. With the exception of Mis
souri Pacific, which ran off to 58&, the
market closed tolerably firm.

The wheat markets opened higher in
the morning, forced un by the peculiar
state of the May deal in the West, affect
ing the East also, although July wheat
in New York was lower. The reports
indicated a marked desire on the part of
shorts for May to go out of it in the Chi
cago market. The covering forced it
up, and as the idea to spread by selling
July was destroyed by the difference in
price, there were fewer sales of that
month, and it sympathized in the rise
with May. Cables were weak. The pe
culiar position of the market, with re
spect to manipulation, overcame the
natural weakness, due to the official re
port of wheat stocks in farmers' hands.
Wheat ranged as follows:

London, March 12.— Discount rates
were firm daring the week past at \%
for three months and 2 for short. The
financial situation in the United States
is the leading influence that affects the
money and stock markets. High class
investment stock and home and Indian
funds have been especially affected by
the talk of probable borrowing by the
United States. There is a consensus
of opinion here now that the negotia
tions in that direction have been tenta
tive and provisional and that the Unit
ed States will tide over the temporary
difficulty until a definite monetary
policy has been adopted, especially as
Austria's demands have lessened. * Sil
ver was quiet during the week. The
market was to some extent supported
by the small amount offering. Business
on the stock exchange was extremely
inactive. The markets seemed asleep,
and even brokers of the highest stand
ing complained of an absence of orders.
Argentine securities improved slightly
at the close, owing to the aunounce*
ment that the Argentine govern*
