Dun & OO.'H weekly review of trade'will say: Dullness Is tho teature-finiiisineHS^TUt dullneBS with ft hopatuJ feeling in almost every quarter. Thore Is just now so little anxiety about the money market that little is said oi tho delay of the bond pur chase bill, amendments in the senate, which may possibly defeat it. The pos sibility of gold exports does not seem visibly nearer than it seemed weeks ago, and considerable purchase of securities on foreign accounts are reported. Money on call at New York has ruled at 8 to per cei'iti, and foreign exchange has de clined from $4.88 to W.87X- The more pacific advices from Europe render the outlook more satisfactory, but the pre vailing dullness Is every where felt. Many feel the Influence existing on ac count of recent strikes. The railroad dlfliciil ty at the west does not abate, but the feature .most widely observed is the disposition of customers to act with con servatism, buyiug only as they are com pelled to'buy,, and this appears In many of. the leading branches of trade. It is in part the fruit of expectation that prices may be. lower, and in part due to perception that the demand for consump tion has slacked, and may diminish still more. The failures of banks, or bankers, In North Carolina, Mobile and Newburg, has 'cauaed no disturbance, though It is recognized'that many weak spots must always be found after a period of extraor dinary speculative activity. Yet, on the aggregate, failures are not more nu merous nor, more impor'-aiit thatt those of the last, or the previous year, which clearly indicates greater soundness In le gitimate commerce, since the num ber of failures of speculative origin has Increased. Prices nre maintained with roraarkable steadiness For many years it ha&oqit hap pened that the general level of prints has changed as little as it has during.the .first quarter of 1888. The dry goods trade re ports fairly satisfactory sales. The drug trade is in favorable shape, purchases being reduced as far as possible, and similar features appear in the markets for sugar and. many other product which may be Affected by a change oi duties. The wool market, however, though, dull, Is steady for the better geadoSj while other qualities sell moder ately at concessions. Reports from vari ous pjirts of the country show a general feeling, of conildence, though a lack of present activity is commonly noticed, with some closeness in the money market, and tardiness in collections in the north west. Domestic exports from New York for March are 22 per cent.' below, last year's, while imports Increased a little. ..Bilfrim'sa fail urea j\ vlng the Jagt.seven days: TJultcd States 170, Canada 42, total compared with ,343 last week, and 328 for the corresponding week In 1887.

LONDON, March 81.—An indication of the intensity of the friction existing be tween the French and the Italians Is fur nished by the following incident: The captain of the Italian ship Panama, ar riving at Marseilles, Friday, Insisted that only Italian laborers should be em ployed in discharging the vessel's cargo. The French laborers bacame Incensed at this, and complained to the port commis sary of the discrimination. Learning of the action of the French laborers the Ital ian consul, at Marseilles, demanded of M. Flourens an explanation of the port com missary's interference with the rights of the masters of Italian vessels to employ whom they pleased to load or discharge cargoes, or to do any other work they might require. The tone of the consul's demand is understood to have narrowly escaped transcending the lines within which diplomatic language is confined, and it is feared that an outbreak of hos tilities will grow out of the affair. afurmure Against, the English Physician. LONDON, March 81—When Emperor Frederick goes out for a drive he is fol lowed by Dr. Mackenzie in a olosed brougham, accompanied by an aide-de chmp,and when the emperor and empress drove into Berlin yesterday the crowd suspected that the English doctor was the occupant of the curtained vehicle which followed the imperial carriage, and indulged in a great deal of murmuring and shaking of fists. Dr. Mackenzie did not show himself, nor did he give any sign to his companion that he regarded the demonstrations of the crowd which lined the route, as evidences of popular hostility towards himself. It is under stood, however, that extensive police pre cautions will be taken against a reoc currence of these manifestations,and that future' offenders will be considered to have insulted the emperor, and prose cuted on that charge. Throat Cutting. BERLIN, March 81.—Mas Kaiser, aged thirty-five years, formerly a member of the reichstag, died at Breslau yesterday, from the effects of an operation removing a porton of his larynx, performed by a skillful physician. Herr Kaiser hail pre viously submitted to the operation of tracheotomy, the performance of which is held to greatly diminish the risk at tending the operation of laryngotomy. Within six months two such cases have resulted fatally, in one of which the pa tient, who was operated upon by Dr. Bergman, died within four days. The fatal termination of these cases is con sidered sufficient justification of the posi tion taken by Dr. Mackenzie upon the question of removing "the emperor's larynx at San Remo.

THE BURLINGTON FORCING AID FROM I1 OTHER ROADS S*-U J"-'- Several Companies Agree to Handle "Q" Freight—Strikers Extend Their Opera tions. und Will Isolate Chicago from Idle Great West—Trouble at the Transfers. CHICAGO, March 31.—The management of the Burlington road decided Saturday morning to call upon the various roads running east and west for assistance in raising the freight blockade in its yards. In pursuance of this decision, trains ar6 now being made up for the Fort Wayne, Lake Shore, Rock Island, and Illinois Central, and will bo offered at the trans fer points of these roads during the day. The first train of twelve cars, intended for the Fort Wayne, left the "Q." freight depot shortly after 11 o'clock. Fifty' police rode in a box car behind the en gine, and a Pinkerton man stood on the rod of each car. Advices by telephone from the point where the train will be switched on the Fort Wayne tracks, say the chief of the local police of Town of Lake has his men there, nnd Pinkerton men have arrived. A great crowd of the rougher element Is gathering along the tracks, and trouble is feared: The Bur lington has prepared legal papers in blank, to serve without delay upon any road that may refuse to receive its cars, In accordance with the provisions of the inter-state commerce law. At the offices of the company it is stated that assurances have been received from the Ft. Wayne, Lake Shore, and Chicago & Alton roads that they will handle all "Q" freight offered, regard less of results. This indicates that the roads are making up their minds they must stand or fall together. Business on the St., Paul road Is at a dead standstill, all railroad men includ ing the engineers, firemen, switchmen nnd hrakemen having been ordered out Friday night at twelve o'clock. No train of any description has been moved by union men. The strike of switchmen in the Pan Handle yards in this city, which was to have taken place at 7 a. m., did not oc cur, and at 11 the men were still at work. The switchmen and engineers of the Pennsylvania, Ft. Wayne & Chicago road notified the officers that under no circumstances would they handle Bur lington cars. All hps been quiet at both the St. Paul and Ft. Wayne yards up. to noon. Chairman Hoge, of the grievance com mitteeof the Burlington & Quinc-y road, who is at the head of strike operations in the absence of Chief Arthur, practically admitted that three or four other roads would go out to-day. From What is gathered from Mr. Hoge's careful talk, a feeling of desperation has seized the men. It is understood the Brotherhood' intends to cut Chicago off from the great west,as far as lies in its power. The roads marked for strike are the Chicago & Alton, Fort Wayne, Pan Handle, Rock Island and Santa Fe. The only remedy the Brotherhood has will be in the pres sure of officials of other roads to force the Burlington to come to terms. The "Q.'s" competitors will undoubtedly resort to this to avoid trouble.' A Queer Order From the Northwestern. MILWAUKEE, March 81.—The foUowing is said to be a secret circular sent out to Edl the freight agents of the Northwest ern road: Chicago, March 24—General Freight Department, Circular No. 1,199.—To All Agents and Connecting Lines: Owing to labor troubles on the Chioago,Burlington & Quincy Chicago & Iowa Chicago, Burlington & Northern Chicago, Bur lington & Kansas City St. Louis, Keokuk & Northwestern Hannibal & St. Joe Kansas City, St. Joe & Council Bluffs Houston & Shenandoah Burlington & Western Burlington & Northern Bur lington & Missouri River in Nebraska, can not until further notice receive any class of freight to be delivered to the above-named roads.

H- d-i, Mi-riu 231,, 1888.—To the Press aid 1) /sutaittu: We w.iil begin, as ptop-l.t geui-riiiiy do, hy a few weighty observatjoijH -n the wi a»hr March has averaged muoh colder ncre than either of tbe winter months jot has not had a front. Nu* and then a oool, braoing coril: wind makes people put on extta wraps for a day or two, and the mercury gets down to fifty or fortj.--five degrees, but no geiat:ou is ii jured. The flower gardena are in their glory all these months, while the most unexpect ed numbeis of noribernt-rs have fiillcd tbe state. I would just like to hint at the names rf soori-s of ohoice Sowers thai U.c,mcd freely all tbrougb, but it is not beat. Io regard to roses alone I may say that the magnificent varieties and tbo constant heavy blooming of hundreds of sorts, in theoommon gar dens of this town for several months past excell all I ever before saw in tbe rose line elsewhere. Tuberoses have been shipped to Boston by hundreds tbe grand heads of flowers being out and packed in these gardens in January or whenever th-y bloom. The markets are well filled with fresh vegetables—turnips, onions, sweet pota toes, oabbsge, &o. The orange groves began blooming in January, two months ahead if the usual time, and while an immense crop of fruit has set, there are hosts of later trees still loaded with flowers and buds The orop of next season will grestly sxoeed a previous orop in the state. AH the other re sources of the people promise exoellent sucoess. The sudden change here from depres sion and a general lack of confidence to the present exhilarated .feeling, amounts to a regular boom. Oiily last fall the yellow fever soare, the short orange orop, the dullness of real estate and the lying prophecies of general stagnation benanse we voted prohibition, all were used by the oroakers to destroy aoafi denoe and repal prosperity. Bat it osme in spite oi them all. Six m:mtln ago, for instansa, many were saying: "They won't venture tooptn the Seminole hotel at Winter Pijrk this season. Times are too hard. No tour ists coming to speak of. If prohibition is oarried tbe hotel~manag5rs will throw up 'heir ieasa." Bat the honse opened its 250 rooms at the usual high rates, and they were soon all taken. About 400 guests constantly have enjnyed the beauties of that famous new rssort, and from ten to thirty telegraphic applioa tiona lor roams are daily refused. When the long train of ooaohns arrives and. the brakeman shouts "Winter Park," more than half the oooupants in each oar rise and swartn oat to go to tbeSsminole, while an equal number are on the plat form, just leaving for Kis^immee, Or iando, Tampa, Oubi or their northern homes. All other towns with first olass hotels have been like over run beyond expec tation. Ond or two new hoiela will be built at '"inter Parkc probably sur passing tbe five story Seminole, to pre pare for the boom of ntxt winter for a boom it will be, as we jadije from a.host of favorable signs. The bitter oomplaints of those who suffered oold weather in California, with wood and coal six times as dear as here the delight and satisfac tion expressed by all these visitors while here, the rapid extension of railroads and promised erection of immense new hotels, and the terrible sffliction of tbe winter throughout every part of the union except here, those things ussure as that the best times this state has ever seen will bo far exoelled this next year. Winttr park is a new village of beau tiful homes among pine woods and lakes foar. miles from Orlandor with a great hotel and an exoellent college under New England management. Tbe plaoe I have bought for a home and to-day seoared a deed for, is a mile this side of that town, and has so many advantages, of sohool, lake front, good soil, fine grove of young orange trees, two railroads veiry near, nominal taxation, and excellent neigh bors, that after eight months time to deliberate, I am satisfied that it is a good purchase at six hundred dollars per aore. I bad.hardly olosed the trade verbally, when a tourist at the Seminole tried to seoure over three aores of it at the rate of seven hundred. There is heavy hard wood and pine forest within tw» minutes walk of my plaoe, held at 1,060 dollars .per acre. It is impossible to explain such prices to distant friends, but the more one learns pf all the facts by living here, the more thoBe prices are justified. There are no buildings, on my plaoe, and for the present we rent an attractive home in this oity at a low figure. AH the household artioles shipped from Yankton came in good order and are now in use. ne week aeo my family arrived here from Denver. Mrs. B. went thither Jan. 11th to visit her parents and eight brothers and sisters^ Dtjjricg her visit she was prostrated by a dangerous attaok of quinsy, from which she recovered very slowly. After a week of rapid im provement here, there is illness among the little ones, whioh aoooa»ts for my having time at all hours of the night to write this letter while watohing. Last night an* to night, Victor and I he ird Biohard A Proctor's astronomioal lesture, and saw his wonderful photo graphio illustration thrown on the screen by an assistant. As a pubiio soientifio leoture I know of no greater treat than this. His style is most earnest, simple and unpretentious but marked by such graoe of expression and 'gesture as 1 •ever saw equalled. The hour and a half of rapid, compact, perfectly prepared oratory passed like a pleasant dream, charmed by his kind voioe, his agreeable rosy, chnbby Bppearanoe, an# his un questioned mastery of the anbjset. Mr. Proctor lives at Orange lake some eighty miles trojn here. An English friend here Insured him good aadienaes. There ere aw^iy rich English ab^?t this place, and I expected,. tn«r opera bouse would be orowded.

The nearest neighbor betide my new piao# there, au»| a very agreeable friend, is a retired Chioago droggiBt, His first name is Russell, and I have just learned he was cousin to the famous war oorreBpon dent, "Bull Run" Ruesell. The ewner of the 60 acres sdj uning mine on the other side, is a Stnyvfe'sdnt of New York, —lineal descendant of the old Dutch gov' ernor, and heir to the millions of the fam ily estates. We look to see their winter home built in the pine woods of their awful high looation.

Kerdell, onoe a.prominent speculator in "ttar-ronte" enterprises with Dorsy and others. Bis testimony before the investigating tribunal at Washington was deemed rioh at that time. The other paper of importance is the Orange County Be port'r, establuhcd ten years ago bj Mahlon Gore of Dakota and Sioux Oity. Under his oare it has become the most able and influential journal south 0! Jacksonville. Mr. Udr^is tbfc same genial, courtly gentleman as ever, bat increasing illness compels him t6 seek more active out-door service. Ho will find plenty of profitable employment in looking after bis valuable lands about Ohulujta, improving some .by planting groves and making sales of wild land at great profits. All old Dakocaians will remember Gore, the printer, editor hunter and Indian fighter of 1861 and62' wbo made tbe first homestead filing is the Uuited States, and lived a while on bisolaim at Richland. I am having more work done to clear up and plaiit my land at UhnlaotajBud near it we are getting efgh't''acres oleared upon land owned by Miller ot Watertown, who will long have several buudrcid trees planted in plaoe of the pines now being out down, everal grov. S about here have lately been sold to men who have lately lived in California but ohosen to emigrate hither. One snob sale was for $14,000. There have been about 200,000 orange trees shipped from this county lately to Riverside, Cal., by two or three nursery men of my acqoaintanoe, Mr. Wallace, who lives just beyond my works, is no* boxing 30,000 good sized trees for Cali fornia, paoked in swamp moB9. Weil, the frozen out groves there will need re planting on a large -soale. We ooold also Bbip some of on' cord wood there at a profit, I think. Here it is worth lees than three dollars a oord, while in that ohilly paradise it is sixteen or more. Wallace has just oome from Riverside. He describes the effect of one north Wind that lasted 10 days. It blew the sand and small gravel with Bach a "per fect sand blast." as to cut away all leaves an tender shoots from the north half of all orange trees expoeed to It leaving them bare as if exposed to fire on one side.
