HOW TO HETTEK THE MARKET Suggested That a Gigantic Combine Be Formed and that RaJea Amount On ly to the Demand. London, November 23. The Mark Lane Kxpres today, communing on tha wheat outlook, says: "Wo expect that the decrease of French wheat acreage In 197, owing: to the latenes of th sowing season, will be much larger than any Increase fh this country. The sowing of Axlma wheat In Russia are admitted to be smaller than usual. The rise In price haai stimulated Russian markets and the line of spring Ghlrka sowing- ia likely to offset the Axlma deficiency. VTe must await further news from India before concluding that the drought Is over. Injury haa been done in any event, and there cannot be any wheat available for export prior to April, 1898. AuatraJla I importing California wheat and has no surplu available for ablp- ment to Europe." Commenting upon the past week' market, the Mark Lane Express remark: "The farmer are (polling the market by overaupply. We auggest that a cen tral chamber organise a society of wheat growers, pledged to sell only In such quantities aa the situation demands." Continuing. It aays: . "The advance of 2 8d in the price of wheat In Pari alnce the end of October. 1 a matter of some importance, a France haa hitherto been boasting that she haa a well supplied market If the purchases of foreign wheat by France Increases, the situation will become much strong er." CHICAGO MARKET BETTER. Chicago, November 23. There was a decided weakness around the opening of the wheat market today, although It did not last long. May, which closed Saturday at 79-'n cents, opened at from T!S to 79Su most of the trading being around the lower figure. The weakness was attributable to several causes, the most influential one being, perhaps, the last Black Sea shipments. Opening cables also were disappoint ing, and further rains were reported in drought-stricken India. The market turned stronger at the last hour. Pri vate cables gave unfavorable reports of the Argentine outlook. Covering by shorts again set in and May sold up to 804. the high point of the day. Selling on the advance, however, was sufficient to break the price again to 804, where It closed. THE MARKETS. Portland. November 23. Wheat. 'Wal la Walla, 76Jf7T; Valley. 79flS0. London.

A few days ago an actress In "The Cherry Pick er," at the Fourteenth Street Theatre, lost a diamond anklet at a matinee, missing it on her return to her dressing after the scene in which the had to wear it. The manager offered a r it ward for It, but believed, be said, that it must have been found by somebody connected with the theatre. It now appear that he was right In this. The monkey which appear In the play had It. The supposition Is that It came off on the stage, and the monkey picked It up and held It aa an investment. The property man, who ence kept dog, saw the monkey frequently paw ing In the straw in a comer of bis cage. and supposed that he must have buried a bone there. The monkey might have kept the anklet till a larger reward was offered If bis vanity had not overcome his prudence and led him to put It around bi neck on Sunday afternoon. The property man, having engagements for the afternoon and evening, oame to feed the monkey earlier than usual. and so took him by surprise and got the anklet back. There waa talk at first of discharging the monkey and getting a new one, but the injustice of this waa quickly seen, and the question now ia in what form to pay him the reward of Sl.MO so as to do him the greatest pos sible good. WALES' VISIT TO MARLBOROUGH Brilliant Scenes at Woodstock Honor of the Great Event la EQUIPMENT FOR THE RAILROAD. Mr. Hammond Will Ship Six Passenger and Many Freight Cars. Special to the Astorlan. Portland, November 23. Word waa received today that A. B. Hammond ia arranging to ship a lot of new equip ment for the Astoria road from the East. It is understood that It consists of six new passenger coaches and a lot of freight cars. The new transconti nental freight tariff from the Atlantic seaboard to Northwest Pacific coast points, which waa effective November 9, and which makes the same rates to Portland and the Sound as are now In force to San Francisco, via the Sunset route, excludes Astoria, which hereto fore enjoyed the same rates as Portland- under the old transcontinental tariff. MAGNIFICENT DECORATIONS State Dinners Win Be Held Nightly Great Festivities for the Common People Thursday. (Copyrighted, '99. by Associated Press.) Woodstock, November 23. In honor of the visit of the rlnce of Wale to the Duke and Duchess of Marlboro, Wood stock and Blenheim were en fete today. The decorations wer most elaborate and universal. The railroad station here was made brilliant with scarlet and gold canopies, flags and colored lamps and the streets leading to Blen heim Park gate were lined with Vene tian masts, festooned with colored lamp and Innumerable flags, many of which were stars and strips" sewn to Union Jacks. Everywhere were loyal welcoming mottoes, triumphal arches, covered with foliage, bunting In profusion, lamps of all colors and Prince of Wales feathers In abundance. The palace waa thoroughly re-fumlshed, the art treas ures ihown, Including Caolus Durand' full-length portrait of the Duches of Marlborough, formerly Miss Consueio Vanderbllt, which waa hanging In tha first state saloon. In addition all the lackeys wore new liveries. There wag a wealth of chrysanthemums through out the palace and the Marlborough arm biased from every convenient pot. The most elaborate arrangements have been made for the shooting parties during the week. There will be state dinners every night, a string band of about fifty performers furnishing musie during the repasts. On Thursday festivities will be gives for the people of the vicinity, and they are expected by the thousands. There will be a display of fireworks surpass ing even thing seen outside of Christal Palace. This will be followed by an il luminated bicycle parade. ARMSTRONG DEFEATS SLAVIX. The Australian Could Not Stand Chicago Man's Onslaught. the SCHOONER WRECKED. Overturned Hull Reported by the Rock- hurst OiT the Columbia. Mr. Frank Peavey, of Minneapolis, the big elevator man whose grain houses This sunie friend of llanna said that It had practically been decided that nre scattered throughout the North- j Congressman Itoutelle. of Maine, would west, when In Astoria last declared his liitentlon to build such elevators at Flavel. Where will be the location of the ex port Hour mills? Naturally where the elevators are, and where the grain car are stored. It Is known In certain quar ters that schemes are brewing for the building at Flavel and New Astoria of large flour mills for the export trade. Thus It will be with the proposed ex port saw mill, cotton and linen twine spinning mill and other factories. They must be at the center of rallrond ac commodations, where there is plenty of room and a large business can be han dled cheaply and expeditiously. On Young's bay. also will be the big dry dock for the repairing of the largest oecan going vessels, which alone will be the principal factor In establishing the supremacy of this port. What then, do all these great enterprises mean for the west side? They simply mean that thousands of workmen and skilled la borers will soon be seeking homes. Can they afford to live on high priced prop- j erty on the hills of old Astoria? No. They must bo near their business and on ground that Is within their means either aa renters or buyers. New Asto ria, Flavel and Warrenton are the nat ural sites for their homes, and there they will doubtless settle. Another question which has been ask ed Is whether all this Improvement and be the secretary of the navy. SAN BENITO WRECKED. Went Down Near Point Arena and Is a Total Loss. Point Arena, Col., November 2S.--The steam collier San Benito Is fast aground a few miles north of this place and will be a total wieck. Eight of the vessel's crew have been drowned and the re maining thirty-five, after suffering ter ribly from exposure, were taken from the wreck today by boats from the res cuing steamer Warott. In a terrible fog Sunday morning the San Benito crashed ashore In a dan gerous locality and Is now resting on the rocks, gradually beating to pieces by the combined action of the gale and surf. When the Bteamer grounded two bouts were lowered, but they were cap slxed In the surf and eight men were drowned. The captain and the remain der of the crew stuck to the ship until taken off by the rescuing steamer.. The British ship Rockhurst, which ar rived Sunday from Valparaiso, reports having sighted about thirty miles off the river the overturned hull of a schooner of about 100 tons. The first mate says that he ilrst saw the derelict Saturday and that the Rockhurst pass ed within a cable length of it. The ill- fated vessel was drifting to the north, carried along by the strong currents. What vessel It could be is a mystery to local shipping men. The only schooner overdue at this port Is the Surprise, from Tolstoi bay, Alaska, but she registers only twenty-six tons. The reported derelict was, no doubt, cap? iz- ed during the recent gale. There Is but little doubt that the crew were drowned, or, even If the seamen succeeded In get ting Into the boats, they would have died of exposure. To all appearances the hull was uninjured. This Is another mystery of the sea which, probably, will never be fath omed. CHILD BURNED TO DEATH. Two-Year-Old Russell Warren Meets a Horrible Fate In Spokane. Spokane, November 23. Russell War ren, the two-year-old child of Solomon S. Warren, waa burned to death this afternoon in the apartments, of the Hal land block. Mrs. Warren had gone out for a few minutes and upon her return found the child on the floor with his clothing in flames. He had apparently turned on the gas in the gas stove, and in striking the match was knocked down by the concussion. He lived about two hours in great agony. The child's mother procured a revol v er and attempted to kill herself, but was quickly disarmed. THAT AISRHIP A FAKE. Inventor Cannot Be Found, but other Is Making a Machine.

Severely Rebukes Europe's Toleration of the Sultan's Outrages. New York, November 23. A letter to the National Armenian Relief commis sion has been received from Gladstone, and is as follows: "I rejoice that the great and bountiful people of you country are endeavoring through a relief fund to mitigate as far as they can some . of the conse quences of the great assassin.

He says the story Is a fake, but declares his cli ent is working on a machine which is a combination of aeroplane and tailless kite. CLEARING-HOUSE REORGANIZED. Spokane. November 23.
