Tuts celebrated "call case" has been the entertainment of Iowa lawyers for a doz en years. It tins been ia the courts that length of time. The Peoria .Tourml sum marizes the history of the various quiiks in this way: Twelve years ago S. D. Potter, of Green county, Iowa, wuit to .Tones' r-rrrmty -to buy some calves, and purchased five of Robert Johnson, wl,'n li the latter claimed to have botigl, ot a stranger named Nmtu. 1 hese calves proved to have been stolen, and Johnson was prosecuted by the Anti horse thief association, but. was acquitted. lie then began action against seven niviii bers of th'j association far malieiou pioseculion, and asked fHUNJO damages I he case has been tu the courts ever since, and has been tried five limes. each lime except one Johnson received damages ranging from $;i,(HKi to 7,500 This week the verdict was set aside, and now conies back reversed at the close o! the last term. The total court cists tig' ureJ S;5.HiJO, and it was estimated tbat i x tenses on both sides since the prosecu ' m began would aggregate fully $20, '), and several persons have been bank iupied by it. The calves were only worth about $50. The !tae of Trade From the American Grocer. Oct. I).

The speculative director baa betm doing his level best to cause a reaction, but with very indilli nt success. Why tbey have failed is very apparent, when we study the cob ililiotis which govern the situation, which have given to all business men confidence oi the future and cause them to believe ihatwcare entering upon a period of pronounced prosperity. We present here a few facts bearing particularly upon the summing tip of trade movements up to the close of September. First, let us take the best barometer of trade, the iron industry, and we bud that the manufacture of pig iron for the first niue months of 1886 was 4. 161,907 tuns, against 3.340,342 tons for the same time in 1885, an increase of 821,565 tons. The anthracite coal output, up to the latest date, was 23,838,145 tone, show ing a gain over the corresponding time .d last year of 082,638 tons. The earnings of 68 railways for the lirst nine months of the year show an iu aeasc over 1885 of 8.7 per cent., and of 12 per cent., over 1884, anil the llailroud Hiizette in its last issue says: "The improvement which in the first half of the year was confined chiefly to il-e lines in the most thickly peopled part f the country, east of Chicago and St. Louis and north of the Ohio and Poto mac, has since become general, and is great in the Northwest and the South." The receipts for customs during the month of September show a gain over September 1885, of $780,790. the decrease of the national debt dur ing September was $10,627,013. The bank exchanges of the leading cities show a gain in September over the same month last year of 22.2 per cent-; for the nine months tf 886, 24.9 per cent, over 1885.' I - The receipts of wheat far twelve-weeks. to October 2 in the Northwest, were lr gcr than fur the same time, in any pre vious year, reaching a total of 88.249,662 bushels, against 80,658,260 for the same time on 18BB, The Buffaloj Cr-"rftri jMMUfW Of OOlt !i Ji "The mdVement of flritr and&raia through this port to the Ket continues very heavy. The receipts of flour for the month ot September were 236,597 barrels in excess of those for the correspondin month last year, and the receipts of grain are over 2,000,000 bushels larger. "Up to the present time the season's movement is the largest on record with one exception, that of 1890, and stands at the enormous total of 69,011,000 bush els, to 45,249.000 in 1885. The shin meats to the East by canal and railroad at correspondingly large. By canal the total for the season is 84.543,000 bushels and by all the railroads from January 1 it it is 14.88S.000 bushels. The receipts and shipments of coarse freight have also been heavy. The aggregate imports of InmiHT eweca 188,000.000 feet to 184. 000,000 feet last year. The westward movement of anthracite coal reaches 1,048,OIH) tons, and 223,543 bar rels of cement, 122, 289 barrels of salt and 82.281 tons of railroad iron have been shipped out of the port. Last year the shipments ot railroad iron were less than 3,000 toDs, showing a large increase iu railroad building at the West. Altogether the navigation season thus far has been a very satisfactory one. ihe exports of wheat during the month of September were 6,984,378 bushels more than for the same month last vear, and for the three months ending September W, 18.080 394 bushels more, while the ex ports of hour for the quarter show an in rease of 1,003.814 barrels, reducing which to its equivalent in wheat, makes a total gain in three months of 22,o!li,5oi bushels, in itself sufficient to set in motion all the wheels of trade and commerce The shipments of refined oil from this port from the 1st of January last to October 2 amounted to 377.095 !l(i barrels, while for the correspondin period in lhSo the shipments were 369, 023.356 barrels, showing an increase of 8,0 l.iibO barrels in favor of the present year. the consumption of sugar from Jan urv 1 to October 14, exports deducted. hows an increase over a like period of ast vear ot 23,n21 tons. The consumption of coffee for the nine months of 1886 is 846 tons in advance id 18S5, but 6,022 tons ahead of the average lor the corresponding period of three years, a better comparison than with last ear, as stocks ia tne interior nave been reduced unusually low. dealers placing nine iauu in me advance. The consumption of foreign raisins rH'piemoer was lio.auo boxes, against it. i oti boxes, for the same month last year.

Iletween 8 and 9 o'clock all the thoroughfares showed signs of unusual activ ity. All trains, including those coming into town as well as those of the elevated rail roads, were crowded to their utmost capacity witn people hurrying to advantageous nolnu to view the grand procession. In the Vicinity of Fifth avenue and Fifty-seventh street, the point at which the procession was to join. ail was Dnstle and commotion as earlv o'clock.
