the strike of the Hamburg and Kiel
dock laborers, but do not believe the
international strike dock laborers
are in sympathy with them. They
might as well strike the moon. We
do not believe in strikes, nor arbitra

BRADSTREET NOT ROSILY HOPEFUL.
In Business Baa Jfot Developed to
Any Great Extent so Far.
New York, Nov. 28. Bradstreet's
Bays : Last, week's disappointment at
the lack of demand In general lines
continues, the intervention of a holi
day having made trade qulterand the
volume smaller. At some points of dis
tribution there is no change In the
situation. Mild and unseasonable
weather prevents a more active dis
tribution of clothing and heavy goods.
and the volume moving is smaller.
Where business has been more active
it is due to ftllins-in orders and to the
demand for holiday goods. Confidence
in a revivial of a demand which has
not yet appeared was responsible for
the starting up of some mills and fac
tories, which are dissatisfied with their
prospects. The most encouraging re
ports are of an improved tone of trade
and a favorable outlook for 1897. .
The large nunrber of changes In
prices of staples were downward this
week. Exports of wheat (flour included
as wheat) from both coasts of the
United States (Newport News miss
ing) amount to 3,641,518 bushels this
week, against 3,937,000 bushels last
week, and 2,4C0,000 In the week one year
There were 295 business failures
throughout the United State3 this week,
th irteen fewer than last week, seven more
than in the week one year ago, twelve
fewer than two years ago and three
less than in the corresponding week
of 1893. As compared with the like
week of 1S92, when the volume of busi
ness was large and trade was gen
erally prosperous, the Increase this
week Is only twenty-seven. There
were thirty-six business failures In
the Canadian Dominion this week
against forty-seven last, fifty-two in
the week a year ago, and thirty-five
two years ago.
WESTERN FOOT BALL CHAMPIONSHIP
Chicago fnlverslty Men Claim It and the
Other Colleges Denir.
Chicago, Nov. 28. The scramble for
the western foot ball championship Is
hotter than ever. With the develop
ments of Thursday the controvrsy is
still further complicated. Coach Stagg
still holds to the claim that the Uni
versity of Chicago players are entitled
to the honor because of their defeat
of Michigan and because they have
played more games than any other
college. Wisconsin players think they
have a more valid claim because they
have beaten Chicago, and though they
were twice tied, have not been actually
Northwestern mokes no claim to the
championship, but holds that the North
western men have a clearer title to the
honor than have Stagg's men. They
declare that no team can Justly claim
the pennant, and that Wisconsin.
Northwestern. Michigan and Chicago
stand on about equal ground. .Michi
gan makes no claim, but does not ac
knowledge Chicago's right to the
championship. The opinion of the
Michigan players seems to be that if
th award can be made to any team
Wisconsin had the cleanest record.
The representatives of the seven lead
ing universities of the west met at the
Chicago Beach hotel yesterday to con
sider rules for the government of
athletics. The principal business
transacted was the lengthening of tne
six months rule in regard to students
entering one school from another to
one year, and prolonging the eligibility
of a player on an athletic team from
four years to six, the last providing
for a post-graduate or professional

Princeton, N. J., Nov. 28 Rumors
have been current here for some days
concerning President Cleveland's inten

Princeton. Nothing definite could be
learned tntil last evening, when Prof.
Andrew West returned from Washine
ton, after having an interview with the
president. Prof. West gave out the fol

Cleveland, Nov. 28. Senator-Elect
Joseph B. Foraker came to Cleveland
yesterday on legal business, and called
on Chairman Hanna at the latter's of
fice in the Perry-Payne building. They
were closeted for a little over half an
hour. Afterward Foraker said to an
Associated Press representative: "I

respects, and will run down to Canton
tomorrow morning to call on Major
McKinley. My visit has no political sig
"During your talk with Mr. Hanna

No sir. " replied Senator Foraker.
"It was not, except that we did speak
of the newspaper stories. But there Is
nothing in them, nothing at all."

Do you think Senator Sherman
would accept the state portfolio?" waa
the next question.

been asked yet."
'Isn't Governor Bushnell a candidate

"Would Mr. Hanna have your sup

a proper question to ask. It is rather
too early for me to talk about that.
Politics is kaleidoscopic, you know, and
changes are continual and sometimes
unexpected. We think much of this
talk is largely for the purpose of show
ing trouble and factional strife In the
Republican ranks, whereas, as a mat
ter of fact, the Republican party in
Ohio was never more united and
harmonious than now. There are no
differences or troubles between Mr. Mc

Dubois, of Idaho, Says It Will Be aa Ag.

Salt Lake. Utah. Nov. 28. The Tri
bune publishes an interview with Sen
ator Dubois, of Idaho. The senator
says he had no idea that there would
be any attepmt to pass the Dingiey bill
at this session of congress; that it was
a piece of legislation that failed at the
last session, adn ought to fail at any
session. When asked about the policy
of the silver senators In the next con
gress, he said: "They will hold the bal
ance of power in the senate, and will
no doubt continue their aggressive
fight for silver, making all other issues
subordinate to that.
"There can be no prosperity under
the McKinley administration any more
than there was under Cleveland. He
Kinley wants a high tariff and a gold
stanaara. xso materwhat kind of a
tariff we have there can be no prosper
ity except for the few under the gold
standard. One more trial of the Re
publicans will convince the people of
this, in my Judgment, and the silver
advocates will win the congress in '98
and the presidency in 1900." Senator
Cannon, of Utah, left for Washington
KF.XTCCKVS TOTE .CAXTASSED.
Two Lowest Republican Electors Tied anei
a Democrat with More Totes.
Frankfort, Ky Nov. 28. The state
canvassing board, consisting of state
auditor, secretary of state, and attorney
general, met at noon yesterday to can
vass the returns of. the recent election.
In view of the Democratic threats to
contest the election of the twelve Re
publican electors, great interest was
felt in the meeting. The canvassing
board had already footed returns and
read them, with explanations of their
action in cases where the returns were
technically irregular. In every
case they waived unimportant technical
ities and counted returns as made.
The official footing gives Kaah, the
leading Republican elector. 218.171
votes, and Smith, the leading Democrat
elector, 217.890. McKinley's official plu
rality in the state is 281. Smith, who
beaded the 'Bryan electoral ticket, de
feats Wedding and Howes, the two
lowest McKinley electors, who are tied.
The electoral college will decide which
of these electors shall vote. The count
gives McKinley twelve out of thirteen
electors. The canvass of congressional
returns made no changes.
