Railroads Taking an Interest in
the Contest.
Chicago, Nov. 14.— 1t is gossip that
the railroads are taking an active part
in the contest for the office made vacant
by the assassination of Mayor Harrison.
The companies are alleged to have
raised a large campaign fund with the
view of resisting the election of any
man pledged to support the track ele
vation movement. The question of
elevating railroad tracks in the city is
usually prominent now because of the
circumstances attending the death of
Mayor Harrison, he having maintained
a policy apparently in opposition to the
movement, and Prendergast the mur
derer, giving this as his motive for kill
ing the mayor. Attorney Trude. who
is prominently mentioned as a Demo
cratic candidate for mayor, is reported
today as preparing an article presenting
a theory as to Prendergast's responsi
bility for his act when he assassinated
Carter Harrison. Mr. Trude's theory is
that Prendergast was sane when he
committed the deed. The cleverness
with which Prendercast sought to in
sure his own safety alter the deed was
committed is related as probable proof
of his appreciation of what he was

Railroad Commercial Agents Meet
—The Northern Paoific Not Dis
turbed by the Alleged Efforts
of the Soo to Secure Its Busi
ness — Mammoth Railroad
Train— Railroad News.
The St. Paul Freight association held
its regular monthly meeting at 4 p.m.
yesterday, at Room 53, the office of
George F. Thomas, commercial agent of
the Chicago Great Western. Matters of
a purely routine nature only were
transacted. Those present constituted
the commercial agents of the various
lines doing freight business in the cits 7 .
The gentlemen in attendance were: E.
D. SewallJ Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul: George F. Thomas, Chicaeo,
Great Western; W. __. Burk, of the St.
Paul & Duluth; Charles Capron, of the
Great Northern: Louis Jannue, of the
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha; A. E. Whitaker, of the Minne
apolis & St. Louis; 11. E. Still, of the
Northern Pacific; E. D. Packer, of the
Soo line.
This organization was formed about a
year ago, and has as its object the look
ing after local freight matters, adjusting
differences and grievances and arrang
ing for a uniform system of switching
charges. It meets on the second Tues
day of every month.
Alleged Effort of the Soo to Gain
N. P. Business. ,
The announcement that the Soo is
disposing of orders along the Northern
Pacific exchangeable for tickets at its
stations, does not "seriously annoy" the
latter road, as has been intimated, if
outside appearances Indicate anything.
A local passenger agent yesterday ex
plained that an exchange order book is
endowed with much the same attributes
as a boomerang, in that it is most liable
to react on those abusing it. He said
that ticket agents can generally control
traffic in their own neighborhood any
way. No good proof has been submit
ted that the Soo is guilty as stated, and
until the evidence is clearer than at
present, the Northern Pacific will not
resort to any retaliatory tactics.
Turks Victimized by a Railroad
"Roxy" Rohan, the assistant city
ticket agent of the Chicago Great West
ern at Chicago, had an experience with
thirteen Turks last Saturday night that
will look well in print. The followers of
Mohammed drifted into the office and
inquired what the rates were to the mid
winter fair at San Francisco. When in
formed the turbaned gentry registered a
kick, saying they didn't like the seats,
claiming that via the Chicago & Alton
they could get parlor cars. "Roxy" was
equal to the occasion and succeeded in
selline the whole thirteen tickets by in
forming them that the Chicago Great
Western could give them rocking chairs.
When they got into the coach at night,
traveling second-class.they kicked again
to the conductor and wauted him to
bring them their rockers. He was equal
to the emergency and told them that
they should have taken the morning
train, which was well equipped with the
desired rocking chairs.
Immense Train.
Last night Train No. lover the North
ern Pacific pulled out for the West from
the Union depot with two standard
Pullmans, through to Seattle, Taeoma
and Portland, five Pullman tourist
sleepers and one free colonist sleeper in
addition to the full quota of first and
second-class coaches. This is oue of the
largest trains that ever left St. Paul.
The passengers comprised a large num
ber returning home from the world's
fair, a number of one-way settlers aud
the rest bound for California points.
Plans Changed.
Yesterday morning Henry C. Payne,
one of the Northern Pacific receivers,
reached St. Paul and was registered at
the Ryan. lie and Receiver Oakes,
who is still in the city, put in the day
conferring together over the company's
matters. It is not thought now that
either Mr. Oakes or Mr. Payne will find
it necessary at present to go West, if at
all. They expect to return East shortly.
The Wisconsin Central has issued a

Minister Henrtoncu Says the Reb-
els Will Be Crushed.
New Yoijk, Nov. 13.— Among the visi
tors to the El Cid today was Minister
Mendonca, of Brazil. In au interview
with a reporter lie "said! "I > have been
criticized for having said-' that
the rebels ought to be treated
without mercy. 1 repeat this with em
phasis, and hold myself responsible for
the words. These revolutionists should
be regarded as a band of ruffians would
who might break into the . Brooklyn
navy yard in the dead of night, take
possession of vessels and munitions
of war, sail out into the bay,
and demand a surrender of New
York, Brooklyn and adjacent cities, un
der penalty of bombarding them. Ad
miral Mello and his men stole ships and
ammunition belonging to the Brazilian
people, and demanded that the govern
ment be turned over to them. The
people rallied to the support of Presi
deut Peixoto, and today every state
in the United States of Brazil
is lighting with the president for' pre
servation of the republic. My latest
advises from Brazil assure me that the
people are enlisting themselves In the
national guard and battling nobly
against the revolutionists. It is to
help that the El Cid and other
vessels are being fitted out. In
preparing the fleet there has
been no intention to enlist Americans
to fight for us. Every officer and sailor
as well as gunner and electrician taken
from New York is under contract not to
enter the war after his arrival at Kio.
The moment the vessels reach Brazil
they will be boarded by loyal
officers and sailors who have
already enlisted, and by these
the government guns are to be turned
upon Mello. 1 will not make any pre
diction as to the time when hostilities
will cease. Mello" will, however, it is
my earnest conviction, be crushed "ulti
mately, and then we shall hear of the
resumption of trade and nothing more
of the booming of guns aud the sacrifice
of the iives aud property of loyal .citi
"Our ships, in my judgment, are be
ing armed and equipped in a way
that will require a formidable force
to capture, much less destroy them.
The ships ordered by my government
will sail under the Brazilian flag,
at least after they leave American
waters. No secret has been made
as to their mission. The offi
cers have instructions to avoid a quar
rel with the occupants of even a canoe.
Should they be fired upon by Mello's
ships before reaching their destination,
of course, for self-preservation, they
will have to fire back. If they are
forced to do this, some one is going to
get hurt.
"1 fear that our fleet will not be able
to get off for two weeks, though it was
hoped to start sooner. Every hour is
precious, for 6,000 miles have to be
traversed, and the government needs
the vessels as soon as they can arrive at
their destination.
"1 know nothing more of the British
demand that this eovernmedt interfere
and stop the war than that 1 have read
in the newspapers. The attitude main
tained by the United States during
the conflict has been eminently
satisfactory to the loyal people and
to the government of Brazil.
The salute given Mello's flag
by an American admiral was visited
with a rebuke which easily convinced
the government that the United States
is not in sympathy with the revolution
ists. There is a chance yet if the rebels
desire a peaceful solution of the dis
pute to submit their differences to the
people. The postponed congres
sional elections will probably
take place in December unless
further ' delayed by hostilities.
If the rebels and their sympathizers are
in the majority they can manifest it at
the polls, but they know they would be
hopelessly defeated then, as they will
be in 1801 when we elect a new presi
dent. The Brazilian people will have
no monarchial form of government.
They are for the maintenance and the
preservation of the republic, and they
are willing to die that it may live."
Receivers Appointed forthe House
of Thurber, Whyland & Co.
New Yobk, Nov. 14.— Francis B.
Thurber filed a general assignment to
day iv the county clerk's office for the
benefit of creditors, to Boudinot Keith,
without preferences. Assets and lia
bilities not yet known.
Judge Andrews, of the superior court,
today appointed Andrew Kirkpatrick
and Thomas Reid receivers for the
Thurber, Whyland company.
Francis B. Thurber, president of the
company, in the application for a re
ceiver, says that the debts of the con
cern aggregate 8800,000, of which $500,
--000 is commercial paper. The company
does it business, he says, of $125,000 a
week. It was organized In December,
1800. It conducted an important do
mestic and importing wholesale grocery
business at Beadle and Huron streets
and West Broadway. The company
was in trouble during last season's
panic, but pulled through with the aid
of leading bankers of the city. Its stocK
has been quoted very low recently. It
is said thai this due to the action of
small holders in continually selling.
Mr. Thurber, iv speaking of the as
signment, said: "While all creditors
can be paid in full, the business cannot
be profitably continued without tresh
capital. This has been offered and can
be obtained, but only through a reor
ganization which, in the opinion of the
largest stockholders, is preferable to
dragging along on the present basis.uot
only without dividend, but with danger
to all interests concerned.
The liabilities will amount to about
$SOO,OOO, as against which there are as
sets amounting to about $2,000,000,
though the realization of this sum will
depend upon judicious handling to some
extent upon the continuance of busi
ness. i-.r:':
The man who is to furnish 6500,000
capital to the Thurber-Whyland com
pany, is said to be a Mr. Hass, a retired
groceryman of San Fraucisco, who has
just come East.

Chic ag, Nov. 14. -Wheat lost lc to
day on a heavy increase in' Northwest 6
country elevator stocks, heavy North-
western receipts, an unexpected in
crease in the United States stocks,
export clearances aud free selling.
Corn was weak, but less radically so
than wheat, and the" loss in it at the £
-close was from }£c to %a. Oats are '..e
lower, arid provisions 30c off for pork!
and 15c for lard ana 17Kc lower for ribs.
Wheat opened near yesterday's clos
ing figure, but immediately began to de
cline. Northwestern receipts continued
heavy. The stocks in elevators in Min
neapolis, Duluth and In the interior
back of those places were reported to
show an aggregate mci ease last week of
3,252,000 bushels, and this completely
off-set the reports of smaller farmers
deliveries. Operators who had bought
ou the better feeling of yesterday begun
to unload, and the price continued to go
down. The report that Bradstreet will
increase the United States stock
tomorrow by over 4,000,000 bu was
another depressing factor. Some buy
in*-: by shorts caused temporary reac
tion, but with the above bearish, influ
ences, small export clearances and dis
couraging cables, the general tendency
of tne market was downward. Decem

Corn opened weak, with May Xc be
low yesterday's close on heavy receipts.
After a considerable drop from the

The recovery was maintained for a

wheat's extreme weakness and closed

Oats opened fairly active at yester

Provisions opened fairly active, and
experienced an early slight advance,

New York, Nov. 14.— The stock mar

than usual, despite the fact that the
announcement was only just made that
an agreement had been entered into by
the granger roads to maintain rates dur
ing the wiuter, which could not be
looked upou other than in a favorable
light. The changes in the list at the
opening were very slight, and in the
early dealings fractional fluctuations
were made on both sides of the account.
But the speculation soon warmed up,
and under the influence of a good buy
ing movement iv Sugar and New Eng
land prices advanced }[email protected]>^c. the two
stocks named leading. The advance
induced sales of New England resulting
in a reaction of 1 per cent in these
shares, and of a fraction In the general
list, which was followed by a brisk
upward . movement ranging from
jK to 1% per : cent, in which which the
granger stocks were most promi
nent. The higher level was not main
tained very long, Manhattan dropping
*2 per cent and Louisville & Nashville
IK, the other declines being unim
portant. Some thirty minutes before
noon the temper of speculation under
went a complete change, the market
became active, London was a small
buyer, the Burliugton & Quincy divi

Consequently, price-; again moved up

MARSHAL HALSTEAD, Esq., Vice-President Cincinnati Commercial
Gazette. . .... :
Thk Auto Book Concern has been CT^LrJzel.
First. To acquire and control the American and European
patents of the Auto Book Binder, and tLejj_'rjro Bock Trimmer
Machines, that, to the book -making Rrt, ci£fk aa advance as im
portant as the Steam Printing Press was to the Washington Hand
Press fifty years ago; and to manufacture and operate said machines,
in this and in foreign countries. ' . ■'. .*•:'* *
Second. To acquire the most complete set of stereotype and
electrotype plates, in this country, of the standard popular authors.
These are stored in fire proof vaults in the City of New York. They
are perfect and cost over 1 ,000,000. •
Third. To manufacture with the use of these Automatic Machines,
all grades of books, including school and music books, and sell the
tame at greatly reduced prices, to its Stockholders and the trade, g
Statement of Earnings.
The profits on the publication of the standard and popular works from the plates which the Company aecnlres have exceeded @ . OO CCO yearly
nnder the old processes of manufacture, assuring to the stockholders a profit of at least IO per cent, per annum from thia source alone. With tho
use of the Auto Machines these proiits must necessarily be largely increased. '
It is impossible to estimate the returns from the ownership of the patents and the sale of the Machines in Foreign Countries, but it is a well
known fact that patents covering machinery that create a revolution in any important trade havo proved enormously remunerative to the original
owners, and soon repay the full amount of capital invested. Additional dividends will be declared from time to time a* such proUts are realized.
Stockholders' Postal Supply Bureau.
An important feature of the sale department of the Company is the Stockholders' Postal Supply Buhsatj.
The Company acts as agent for each stockholder in the purchase of all books published; and secures for stockholders the
greatest possible discount, varying from 25 HO per cent. Stockholders will also be supplied with catalogues containing the
list of the Company publications, with a confidential price list, giving the wholesale prices and a special additional discount
which will be given to stockholders alone. Such discounts to stockholders will amount to an immense sum on the vcarlii
purchase of books, thus yielding large DISCOUNT DIVIDENDS, in addition to the Cash Dividends, on the investment
The price to be paid by the Company for the American and I
Foreign patents of tho Auto Book Binder, the Auto Book Trimmer
and the stereotype and electrotpye plates of the Standard Works ia
$1,000,000 ; $350,000 in cash and §650,000 in the stock of the Company ;

attack values, and before 1 o'clock
the market was going down hill
again. The depression continued
throughout the afternoon because there
were no strong buyers in the field.while
there were a number of sellers anxious

prevailing tone to the close, at which

Tee Auto Book Binder and the Auto Book Trimmer are run
at litt;. expense. They are marvels of simplicity. The binder, with
tho assistance of two girls, picks up printed sheets and covers, and
converts them into solidly and flexioly bound volumes, neither sewed
nor wired. These machines -perfectly perform their tasks, and are
henceforth rs indispensable in producing books, as the perfected
presses aro to tho newspapers.
It is proposed to provide families, students and school teachers
with libraries at trifling expense and the best current literature at
prices heretofore unknown and school books for the children of the

progressive little church, says tha'
Seattle Telegraph . Some time ago It
was found necessary to raise a certain
amount for a" certain purpose. The.;
