JOBBERS AS A UNIT M.I. A(iREE THAT THE PRESENT TRADE CONDITIONS ARE GOOD AND (HI-KHIIL FRKSOT IS PROSPEROUS IVIIII.I-: THE KVTVWE PROMISES AN EVEN GREATER STORE OF BUSINESS BLESSINGS ALL LINES ALIKE ABE LIVELY There In No Discordant Note In the Chorus of the Local Wholesalers —It lit the Jubilate That Wells From Every Tradesman's Throat These Days—lnterviews "With St. I'nul Jobbing- Magnates. Not in years have the jobbers of St. T^ul been confronted by so general a condition of prosperity or with such hope ful prospects for a continuance of simi larly happy conditions. Such at least was the consensus of opinion among repre sentatives of various lines of the whole- Bale trade who were questioned by the Globe yesterday with respect to the ex isting conditions. The dealers inter viewed represented several, lines of busi ness, and all were agreed that the season of 1899 need but continue in the way it has begun to rank with the best year of the Jobbing trade in the Northwest. DRY GOODS. George R. Finch, of Finch, Van Slyck, Young & Co., said for the wholesale dry goods trade that it was in an especially prosperous condition. His firm was this year employing approximately 200 more people than in April 1898. Of these 150 were to be accounted for by an increase in the manufacturing department of the business, and the rest chiefly by the ne cessities of the Increased business In ship ping and addition to the clerical force and the like. There had been no material increase in the number of salesmen nec essary. Mr. Finch was sanguine that the existing condition was a healthy one. and not unnatural. It was general and not local, and it appeared to carry with it the promise of permanency. The people of the Northwest had enjoyed a season of prosperity, and having the money to spend they were spending it. GROCERIES. Ranking with the dry goods trade ne cessarily, if not properly ahead of it, is the wholesale grocery trade, and in this, too, a healthy condition is manifest, j! H. Allen, of J. H. Allen & Co., fiaid yesterday that while the figures of the local trade would probably run slightly behind the amount of business done in the same month of IS9B, the de crease was gratifyingly small and read ily accounted for by the fact that a year ago last month the federal government was buying immense stocks of provisions for the feeding of the then mobilizing army, much of which was furnished by the local trade. There is, too, a tempo rary dullness in the grocery trade, Just as there always is at the seeding season. This is an entirely unusual condition, however, and has been invariably fol lowed by an increased activity, as the farmers, after they finished putting In their crops, proceed to close out what ever of the former crop which they may have left. This year the farmers of the Northwest have considerable grain left wheat especially, and they will no doubt follow their usual custom. Taking the year so far, I think that the first four months of 1899 would probably exceed in volume of business the corresponding months of 1898, although April taken alone would appear to a slight disad vantage, on account of the reason I have named. HEAVY HARDWARE. J. Ross Nicols, of Nicols & Dean, deal ers in iron, steel, heavy hardware and wagon stock, etc., reported conditions in that line as very good, although he had observed the same temporary depres sion remarked by Mr. Allen, attributable to the period of seeding. "Our trade dur ing the first part of this year has been excellent. Prices have been advancing, not only on iron and steel, but on dry stock for woodworking. There is a scarcity of this stock, and the demand for it has been considerable. The wagon makers throughout the Northwest are busy, and the inevitable result has been a marked advance in prices. Collections have been good and the trade very steady. Similar conditions exist in other lines of trade, I am informed. Only today a jobber told me that the April trade of his firm represented an increase of a clear $40,000 over the same month of 1898. That ought to be a considerable encourage ment." ° NOTIONS AND SUPPLIES. G. Sommere, of G. Sommers & Co., dealers in notions, toys and household furnishings and supplies, expressed him- Felf as highly gratified with the results attained during the year thus far and the prospects in view. "Our business has shown a very healthy condition," he said "and the retail dealers throughout the Northwest seem to be experiencing a re vival of prosperity, which Is making an Increased demand for all lines of goods." BOOTS AND SHOES. George W. Freeman, of the Minnesota Shoe company, was specific, indeed, about the present state of affatrs. With the pardonable elation that accomapines a newly made discovery, he answered the rcportorial query as follows: "Conditions good? Yes, sir. Our April business represents an increase of 12 per cent over the same month of last year. That is one sign of the times. I haven't speculated a great deal as to the reasons for these increases, unless it is that the people of the Northwest are coming to a realization that they can get the best line of shoes here that they can get any where. However, the Northwestern coun try is generally prosperous, and the boot and shoe trade, I suppose, Is merely en- Joying its share of the improved con ditions." DRUGS. An Increased drug jobbing trade does not necessarily mean that more people are sick than usual, possibly because paints and oils for building and decora tive purposes constitute a material ele ment in the average drug trade. Conse quently there need be no general panic when John F. Broderick, general man ager of the Ryan Drug company is quot ed to the effect that the wholesale drug trade is enjoying the same meansure of prosperity reported by the general job bing trade. "Our business has been very steady," Baid Mr. Broderick yesterday, in re sponse to a query. "My Judgment Is that the jobbing trade of the Northwest, and Ib* £t f mil $tok especially of St. Paul, 1b entering upon an era of prosperity. The Jobbing trade has had to fight Its way against great obstacles. Qurlng the period, say from 1880 to 1884, our Btate and the entire Northwest, In fact, was soliciting the in terest of the entire world. Well organiz ed immigration bureaus were at work, and no means was left unused that prom ised to add to the population of the country. These agencies were subse quently abandoned, but the enroachments recently made on both the jobbing and the retail trade by centralization of the distributing agencies have thrown out of lucrative positions or occupations many men of intelligence and ability, who were unable to compete with the trusts and the department stores and other central izing agencies. These men, or many of them, are turning to the land. They may not go to the farms for a mere livelihood, but as a business enterprise, but in either event, they are adding to the productiv ity of the state, and the result must be a healthy condition of business as the re sources of the state are more and more availed of by energetic and studious men. "The Jobbing trade, as I remarked, has had to compete with great odds. The trusts have sold direct to the retailer, and the jobbing trade has thus lost Its share of that business. Then, too, there have grown up immense mail order sup ply houses, such for example as Mont gomery Ward & Co., of Chicago, which have their catalogues in every farmhouse In the sections which they respectively cater to. The farmer, with ready money, can get anything he wants from these firms laid down at his door as cheaply as the local merchant can get it, or prac tically so. This thus decreases the trade of the local retailer who would other wise handle the business, and accordingly the jobber of whom he would buy also finds his profits curtailed. While the boom was on and there was plenty ot business for all to take care of, no one was noticing these leakages, so to speak, but during the last few years the Jobbers have had their attention drawn to these factors in the existing trade conditions. I believe, however, that with the excep tion of commodities which are in the con trol of the trusts, that the jobbing trade has adjusted itself to the conditions, and that with good crops and natural trad* conditions, the Jobbing trade will enjoy a new prosperity from this on." RIOTS AT WARDNER. Gen. Meriiiuu Will Investigate, and Troops Will Maintain Order. WARDNER, Idaho, May 1.-There were no disturbances in the mining district to day. Eleven men ivere seen from Ward ner, going over the mountains, each with a rille on his shoulder, but their Identity or destination was not known.

Of these troops four companies are stationed at Ft. Sheridan, and one company each at three of the other posts In the de partment.

CHICAGO, May I.—Fire today de stroyed $50,000 worth of property in the Polish settlement at Noble and Oliver streets, and made about twenty-five fam ilies homeless.

Bell, Enter the Place— Prof. ' Schnrmau Cable* Wash ington Progress at Peace Com mission's Work. MANILA, May I.—Gen. Mac Arthur has tjent officers to Gen. Antonio Luna, the Filipino commander, under a flag of truce, carrying money and provisions for Ameri can prisoners in his hands, and asking an exchange of prisoners and the names of such as he may have. It is reported that the insurgents have two officials and sixteen others, and it la supposed that among these are Lieut. J. C. Gilmore and eleven men of the crew of the United States gunboat Yorktown, who fell Into the hands of the Filipinos last month, when the gunboat visited Baler, on the east coast of Luzon. Maj. Bell, with a squad of scouts, has captured the town of Macabebe, about four miles southwest of Calumpit, the people ringing bells and shouting "vivas." The American army are now employing Macabebea Instead of Chinese, and they are expecting to get 50 cents a day, de claring their loyalty to the Americans. Gen. Lawton is advancing. He has or ganized a band of forty scouts to go ahead of the column. The band which is under MaJ. Young, an old Indian fighter, who killed five Filipinos last week, In cludes Diamond, Hammond, Summer field and Murray, of the Second Oregon regiment. Yesterday the anniversary of the battle of Manila bay was observed by the Unit ed States fleet, the unual drills being omitted. Admiral Dewey had many vis itors, and the American and British mer chant men dressed ship. PROSPECTS FOR PEACE. Government Is In Receipt off Secret Advices From Schnrminn, ■WASHINGTON, May 1.-(Special.)— There came to the war department today a message from Commissioner Schur mann, now in the Philippines, which was not made public. It is said that the com munication was in regard to the progress o£ peace negotiations, and it is believed that the cablegram conveyed important news that the government cannot permit to be published until it has been consid ered at the cabinet meeting which will be held today. There is a growing belief here that all that has been cabled Washington with reference to the visit of the Filipino em issaries to Gen. Otis has not been given out, and that thera Is likelihood of an early cessation of hostilities. The war department received no direct advices from Gen. Otis during the day that threw new light upon conditions in the Philippines—at least that were made public. GERMANS SEEK INDEMNITY. Merchants and Others at Hollo Want Pay for Property Destroyed. BERLIN, May I.—The newspapers of Germany, commenting upon the latest news from the Philippine islands, express the hope that the United States will now end the hostilities in the Far East. The Frankfurter Zeitung says: "We trust that President McKinley and his advisers will not be misled by jingo shoutings, but that they will listen to the voice of the Filipinos, as expressed through ther leaders, and to the voice of the American nation, as expressed by the serious press and the declarations of Bober-mlnded politicians. We have never doubted the ability of the Americans to enforce their will in the Philippines; but now it seems that the moment has come to make good the wrong done, and bring their material interests In accord with the dictates of Justice." The Vossische Zeitung, basing Its com ment upon private advices from the Phil ippine islands, says that the continuance of the war is inflicting grave Injury upon German commercial Interests and details a number of cases In support of this statement. The journal last quoted says the German consul at Hollo made a list of everything .belonging to German citi zens there that was destroyed or injured in the bombardment and submitted it to Maj. Gen. Otis. In reply the consul has received from Gen. Otis the statement that the United States will not pay the damages claimed, as Hollo at the time of the bombardment was still In possession of the Spaniards. Other German mer chants of Hollo made representations of a like character to Gen. Otis, and re ceived similar replies. The Vossiche Zei tung adds that these and many more claims will probably lead to protracted diplomatic negotiations at Washington. YORKTOWN'S MEW. Admiral Dewey Reports That They Are Held Prisoners by* Rebels. WASHINGTON, May I.—The following cablegram has been received from Ad miral Dewey: "Manila, April SO.—Secretary of Navy Washington: Apparently reliable infor mation ten of the Yorktown crew. Includ ing Gllmore, are prisoners at Insurgent headquarters. Am continuing investiga tion. —"Dewey. Inasmuch as there were fifteen mem , bers of the Yorktown party captured by the Filipinos at Baler, and Admiral Dewey accounts for only ten of them, It Is feared that the other »flve have been killed. They probably were killed or fa tally wounded in the assault upon the landing party at Baler. The Identity of the members of the party still un accounted for Is not known. A tele gram was sent to Admiral Dewey today asking him to inform the department, If possible, of the names of the men known to be in the hands of the Filipinos. It is accepted at the department that the rea son that he has not already furnished these names, with the exception of that of Gilmore, In his dispatch of yesterday's date, was because he did not have the information. The Insurgents' headquar ters, where Admiral Dewey saya the men are held prisoner*, la supposed to be San Fernando, but there Is no assurance on that point. NO NEW CONCESSIONS. Proolnmatlon Issued at Manila Given All to Be Accorded Filipinos. WASHINGTON, May 1,-Tt is declared at the state department that tho procla mation issued by the Philippine commis sion Just before the beginning of the lost campaign represents the maximum con cessions to be made to the insurgents by the United States government. It is real ized now more atrongly tb»n at any other period that the capacity of the Filipinos lor self-government 1b an undetermined quantity. The United States government Is willing to accede the natives an oppor tunity, for the Philippine commission proposes to allow them almost absolute control of their local affairs, subject only to such supervision by United Stales mili tary authorities as may be necessary to guard against error* by the local and pro vincial authorities In their first attempt at self-government. This state of affairs already exists at some points of the islands outside of Lu zon, where the Jnlted States has assumed sovereignty, yet has continued the local government, under native direction. So far as reports Indicate these experiments are working well, and promise to have a good Influence In shaping the attitude to wards the United States of a considerable element among the Filipinos which has been suspicious of our attitude. PROBABLY A PRISONER. Capt. Rockefeller, of the Ninth In- fantry, Miaslna at Manila.. WASHINGTON, May 1.-The following Is the dispatch of Gen. Otis announcing the disappearance of Capt.' Rockefeller: ''Manila, May I.—Adjutant General, Washington: Capt.

The treasury department has taken steps to prevent the photographing of the warrants for the payment of the $20,000,000 to Spain for the Philippines because abuso of the privilege might lead to the coun terfeiting of government securities.

PAUL ASD IRE QUICKLY MJRRIED WHITE EARTH ATTORNEY SMILES, WHILE A VIRGINIA DOCTOR IS OAST DOWN WANTED THE SOUTHERN GIRL Relatives otf the Bride Also Favored the Suit of the Physician, but the Younff Woman Who Had Had One Matrimonial Experience Decided to Follow the Dictates of Her Own Feelings. While relatives In Washington are all torn up and searching high and low for Catherine E. Rudd, formerly Mrs. Kate Burgess, a handsome young Southerner, twenty-three years old, and are employing detectives to locate her and prevent her marriage, the young lady In question is quietly spending her newly inaugurated honeymoon In St. Paul with her husband of a day, William F. Campbell, of White Earth, Minn., attorney for the Chlppewa Indians of the White Earth reservation. The couple arrived In the city yesterday forenoon and immediately after dinner were married by Court Commissioner Henry Gallick. Their marriage certificate had hardly been made out when telegraphic advices from Washington told of their disappear ance and added that the bride had left there on the eve Of her wedding with Dr. J. Wilson Hope, of the National Sol diers' home, Hampton, Va., and hid left 'Washington in company with Mr. Camp bell, whom she had known and loved for a long time. The news of her departure was an entire surprise to her family, who for two long years had strenuously op posed her marrying the man of her choice and had advocated the claims of the young physician. Dr. Hope Is a resident of Hampton, where he has held a position In the sol diers' home for several years, and met Miss Rudd before she became acquainted with her present husband. His suit was favored by the young lady's mother and sister, but wasn't looked upon with as much approval by the young lady her self. Recently he has pressed his Buit with such ardor that arrangements were made for the marriage and tho family looked forward with pleasure to seeing the two united. But with the usual lack of foresight, the matchmakers failed to remember that the young lauy held the balance of powtr, and It now appearo that the dootor's courtship was used as a shield to a more serious a/fair, which resulted in the disappearance of the in tended bride on Saturday with « man MORE TO HER FANCY. On learning that his Intended bride had departed with another man the doc tor was prostrated with grief and the young lady's mother frantic with indigna tion, according to the Washington end of the story. Detectives were at once employed to trace the fleeing couple, but without re sult. Mr. Campbell and Ml»s Rudd mad* all haste and before the news of their departure arrived here yesterday were married. While Inspector Boardman, of the Washington district detective depart ment, and Detective McDevilt were watching the railroad stations to prevent the departure of the couple, they were hurrying westward over the Chesapeake & Ohio, making for Chicago. They ar rived there Sunday and at or.cc took a train for St. Paul. Mr. Campbell was seen at the hotel last night end asked about his flight and his marriage. Ha smiled Indulgently and as he smoked com fortably at a meerschaum pipe gave the details of his Lochinvar escap.Tdo. "Love may laugh at locksmiths," said he reflectively, "but my opinion is that it takes a good deal more than laughter to make an escape such as ours. Cer tainly I have been none too easy for the past three days, and I can say the same for my wife. It was exciting, of course, but at the same time there was a little too much uncertainty In It all to make it really pleasant. But then," with a sigh of satisfaction, "we are married now and I have the certificate, and If we are satis fied I don't see why the family should object. "I don't mind telling you that we came to this hotel for the express purpose of avoiding men of your profession. I do not want any publicity, but since ac counts of our hasty FLIGHT AND MARRIAGE have been published, there is no objec tion in giving out a statement. I met Mrs. Burgess, that was before she had secured a divorce from her first husband, two years ago while I was in Washington on business. We were stopping at tho same boarding house and met each other there. We liked each other very muoh and an attachment sprung up. It was a year later, however, after she had secur ed a divorce and had been granted the g privilege of assuming her maiden name.J Catherine E. Rudd, that our courtship may be said to have commenced. I was In Washington more or less of the time on business and saw her frequently. "For the past several months there has been a serious opposition to my suit on the part of the young lady's sister, Mrs. Powell, and her mother, Mrs. Jepse Ctill ton. Mrs. Chilton is proprietor of a large private boarding house, and opportunities of meeting Miss Rudd were not frequent. Meet we did, however, and it did not take us very long to size up the situation and decide that if we wanted to marry the best thing for us to do was to get out and have it over with. We planned It all out, but a favorable opportunity did not present Itself until last Saturday. I got my baggage from my boarding house, 318 Third street northwest, and we left without the knowledge of the Chilton family, over the Chesapeake & Ohio for Chicago. We hurried through without stopping, until we arrived here yester day afternoon at 10:30. I immediately went to the courthouse to procure a license, and after a little difficulty, owing to Miss Rudd stating that she lived In Becker county, Instead of Intended to live there, the document was secured. We were married at 1 o'clock by Court Com missioner Henry Gallick and the cere mony was witnessed by W. J. Bazille, a clerk In the district court and P. J. Ruscher. We then came here direct and have been getting things straightened out after our hasty trip ever since. Mrs. Campbell is satisfied; I am satisfied and the little terrier which she brought with Continued oo Fifth Pace.
