The Manchester Guardian, in its com mercial article, says: The inactivity does not seem to be nearing an end. The mar ket is slow and lifeless. The ordinary business only reached the average of lues day. For most directions, especially for the east, the business was quite imma terial. The export demand is extremely poor. Some manufacturers are rot will ing to buy nhead. Yarn buyers are dis posed to regard the present quotations as insecure. Yarns are extremely quiet. Few sales of importance have been made in any department. Exporters have made a few inquiries, but have done little. There is little inquiry for India or China staples. The Calcutta market reopened Monday, after the holidays. There is no improve ment in the demand for other directions. Cloth is only moderately active. The sales of printing and other finishing goods are small. Heavy goods are slow. There is a firm demand for miscellaneous goods. Went Mad on a Train. In a corner of the ladies' waiting room of the union depot Friday morning were seated a man and woman who frequently startled the inmates by cries of "Help," followed by strange mutterings and inar ticulate sounds. They w«jfe Bobert and Hannab Traverse, brother and sitter, who went insane on a Rock Island train the night before. They were placed in charge of the police. They had tickets for To peka and were supposed to have come from Champlain, N. Y., though all efforts to obtain any coherent story from them proved failures. The two were well pro vided with money. No one on the train on which they arrived could account for their strange insanity, as when they left Chi cago they were perfectly sane to all ap pearance. During the night, however, without any known cause, they became almost violent. The worst paroxysms soon passed away and next morning they were not disposed to move from the place where the police put them. They were sent to Topeka. Burled in a Snowsllde, Last week while Charles and William Weller, two miners, were digging their way through the snow from La Junta basin, a snowslide came down the mountain, carry ing the men down 1,500 feet and burying them under the snow and rocks.

Forest fires are raging in Santa Cruz, Alameda and San Joaquin counties, and great damage has been done to the fruit ranches and wheat. In the Santa Cruz mountains some of the largest redwoods have been burned in the last few days. In ban Joaquin the fire spreads so swiftly through the dry tules that stock frequently cannot escape and the flames leap across wide sloughs.

Sensation In a Chicago Church. A sensational incident happened Sunday at the funeral services of C. S. Squires, who was assistant postmaster at Chicago for nineteen years, after having worked his way up from errand boy in the postal service. Mr. Squires was reduced to a chief clerkship and subsequently sus pended. His friends claim that he died of a broken heart. The funeral took place with high Masonic honors in the Im manuel Baptist church, one of the most prominent congregations in the city. The church was crowded to overflowing. Dr. Lorimer pronounced the eulogy, and his eloquence had already greatly wrought the audience up to what he said: "I see in the dead before we the arraignment of civil service. I think as he lies there that he declares the failure of the system. Our ideal is still beyond our intellect, nor will justice and purity prevail in the oivil service until preferment shall be given upon a scale of talents and fitness." O&ere was a moment «f silence and then th* big church rang with an nnre*tr*mable outburst of applause, Knights iii regalia and plain business men alike excitedly shouted approval, notwithstand ing the sacred surroundings and presence of the dead. Dr. Lorimer besought order, saying, "Not here, not here," but adding: "Had this loving and lovable man his just desserts he would still be among us. or we would have been mourning for the dead postmaster of Chicago, and not a clerk of the registry department." So intense was the agitation of the audience it was with difficulty that the church could be cleared. ashed Out of Shape. A terrible accident occurred at the stone quarries at Elliottsville, Ind., resulting in the instant death of two men. The work men were engaged in raising a large stone from the quarry, when one of the guy ropes slipped and the Btone fell with tre mendous force upon George Johnston and William Aiken, mashing them out of all semblance to human beings, aud killing them both instantly. When tbe stone was removed from them they were sft mutilated that recognition was impossibU. Oldy by the clothes which they wore. ,, Big Steamship Race.

The recent trip of the City of New York from Liverpool to New York in 6 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes, places her in the lead of her competitors on tnis trp and makes her a big favorite with shipping men. Twenty-Seven Hones Fire broke out in the large two-story brick stable of Abram R. Rutan, under taker, in Godwin street. The building, owned by Mr. Rutan, was damaged about $3,000. There were twenty-eight horses in the building and only one was saved. The aggregate loss is estimated at $25,000, with about two-thirds insurance. Fell Eight Hundred Feet. Sunday, while J. H. Berryman and John Flidell, two timber men employed in the Wolfe Tone mine, near Leadville, were ascending the main shaft with a load of old timbering, the cable parted, letting the cage fall to the bottom of the shaft, 800 feet. Both men weie instantly killed, their bodies being crushed into an unrecognis able mass. Yellow Fever Scare in Mew York. Considerable alarm has been occasioned over the death, in a hospital in Brooklyn, of Capt. John. Jillard, of yellow fever. The health authorities, however, state that there is now no cause for fear, as every thing possible to prevent the spread of the disease has been done. The body of the captain, after being incased in an air-tight coffin, was taken to Evergreen cemetery for interment. Nine cases of yellow fever are reported at Enterprise, Fla., six of which are. criti cal. Prohibition Sustained. The supreme court Monday sustained the constitutionaliiy of the prohibition law of Iowa. Tne point of issue was the right to manufacture intoxicating liquors solely for exportation to other states despite the state law, and it was pleaded that the pro hibitory feature, in so far as the manu facture for exportation was concerned, was in conflict with the constitutional provisions giving congress the sole right to regulate inter-state commerce. The case is that of J. S. Kidd, distiller, plain tiff in error, vs. J. E. Pierson and S. J. Lotighras. The court holds that the state law prohibiting both the manufacture and sale, except for mechanical, medicinal, culinary and sacramental purposes, is not in conflict with the inter-state commerce provisions, and the decision of the Iowa court is sustained. Opinion by Justice Lamar. A Remarkable Session. Saturday at 1 o'clock the first session of the Fiftieth ended- the longest continuous session in nearly a century of congress, having lasted 321 days. The longest previ ous session ran 302 days, ending Septem ber 30. Apart from a protracted but in teresting discussion of the tariff question both houses, and the unparalleled dead lock in the consideration of the bill to re fund the direct tax, the session has been remarkable in several ways, but in none more than in the enormous number of measures introduced in both branches of congress. In the senate 3,641 bills and 116 joint resolutions were presented, and in the hons! the record ran up to the unequalled figures of 11,598 bills and 230 joint resolu tions, making a grand total of 15,585 measures introduced in one session. In the senate 2,394 measures were reported back from committees and placed on the calendar, a much larger proportion than iu the house, where 8,305 measures of the total number of 11,928 introduced still slumber in committee rooms. Among tne measures of public interest that have become lawB are the following: Relating to permissable marks on mail matter for a division of the Sioux reserva tion for a conference with the South and Central American nations limiting the hours of letter carriers making Lieutenant General Sheridan general of the army to establish a department of labor for an in ternational maritime conference requiring the Pacific railroad companies to maintain telegraph lines to prohibit the crossing of Chinese laborers to the United States for tlie establishment of rules in respect to the St. Maria and other canals to create boards of arbitration to settle controver sies between common carriers and their employes aiding state homes for disabled soldiers, aud changing the date of meeting of the electoral college. In the next stage—that is, in conference between the two houses—two are bills of the first importance, namely, repealing the preemption and timber culture laws and providing a general homstead law, and de claring forfeiture of unearned railroad land grants. Pending before the senate is the house tariff bill and the senate substitute. The senate passed bills to divide Dakota and admit the southern half as a state aud to aid common school education (Blair bill), but they never reached the house for action. The following are the most important bills unacted upon on the senate calendar: For tbe admission of Montana and Wash ton territories to prohibit the alcoholic liquor traffic to decl.ire trusts unlawful. The following measures of importance were reported from the house committee calendar and are still on the house: To reform the direct tax (vote on which will be taken early in December next, under agreement by which the me morial deadlock over this bill was broken) for the payment of arrears of pensions re quiring the investment of the national bank redemption fund in circulating notes to include telegraph oompanies under the inter-state commerce act to promote com mercial union with Canada. The following are some important sen ate bills which slumber in committies: Requesting the president to re-open nego tiations with Great Britian looking to the annexation of Canada to the United States for the free coinage of silver to repeal the oleomargearine act |i he Hennepin canal bill to reduce letter postage to 1 cent to grant woman suffrage, and measures proposing radical changes in the government's finan cial policy. The following are a few of the original house bills which likewise never got out of committees: To repeal the internal rev enue laws and to base a tax to prohibit the mailing of newspapers containing lottery lay 'a «radunted iti ''".T%iMr«iM l«w mailing of newspaj« advertisements to come tax to repeal the civ for full reciprocity bet-ween t%e Ttetted States and Canada directing udfaU pro ceedings to be brought against the PnetSo railroads to break np trusts, and various measures proposing changes in the pen sion tariff and financial laws. The most important private bills of this session were those pensioning Mrs. Logan and Mrs. Prank A. Blair, both of which became laws, and bills to pension Mra. Waite mi Mrs. Sheridan, which passed the senate-but never were acted on by the honse. Turned Him Over to the During the examination of the books of Joseph Field, the defaulting treasurer of Wabaunsee county, it was discovered that the deficit is much larger that at first esti mated. amounting to fully $30,000. Hl» bondsmen have become alarmed and hare returned him to the sheriff. His son Jerry, who has for eight years been his fathers deputy, and who had been elected to suc ceed his father, has been arrested for being connected with the defalcation. He ad mits that he has known of the shortage for several months, but made no report to the county commissioners. He says he cau tioned his father against speculating so recklessly in stocks with county funds. The county is left almost penniless, and will be obliged to borrow money to pay running expenses. The people are veiy much excited over tbe affair. Flour Production. The Northwestern Milter sa£B: The mills did big work last week, the dally out put averaging over 31,000 barrels. The tji tal production for the week ending October 16 was 187,000 barrels, against 162,800 tlw previous week, and 163,600 barrels for the corresponding time in 1887. The same twenty-one mills are in operation again this week, and are getting out all the flour they are capable of. The shipments are very heavy, but are mainly going via the northern lake routes, and this has for some days past caused a shortage of cars, though somewhat relieved now. An effort has been made to get the east bound lake and rail rates advanced to the basis of 30 cents, Minneapols to New York, but the St. Paul and Duluth and the Soo roads have so far not acquiesced, and it seems improbable that the object will be accomplished. The flour market is now very dull, the recent decline in wheat having stopped the buy ing. Patents were reduced 25 cents per barrel in price Monday, and still the de mand is extremely light. There are some jobbers who bought early enough to now sell cheaper than western millers can and still make a handsome profit, and this is being done. A representative of a large firm stated that some of their customers had orders on their books which would net them $3 per barrel, and that until such people were disposed of, millers would not look for a very brisk trade. A majority of the mills report "no exports," but one or two sales were made of an encouraging character. The direct exports of flour last weeK were somewhat increased, but wee* largely on old orders, being 20,600 barrels, agaiust 16,400 barrels for the precedng week. Died on the Cars. Dr. John Scott, an old and well-known dentist of Pittsburg, died in a Ft. Wayne express train while en route home from Chicago. He was attacked with a hem orrhage of the lungs in Chicago, but re covered sufficiently to start for home. On the train he grew despondent and finally* told his fellow passengers that he had a presentiment that he was going to die. He was so confident of this that he had the conductor forward two telegrams to rela tives at Pittsburg informing them of his death on the train. Two hours after the messages were sent he was seized with another hemorrhage and in five minute? he was dead. His wife, who was with him, took charge of the remains and took thenr on to Pittsburg. A Double Lynching. A cowboy from the Snake river country brings the news of the lynching of F. W» Adams and a companion known aa "Dutchy." The two men had been slaugh tering elk and deer for their horns and hides in violation of the state law. They were remonstrated with by an ex-ranch man named Johnson, who said he would report them to the authorities if they did not desist. This enraged the hunter#, who that night burned down the house of Johnson and threatened to kill him if he interfered again. Johnson rode to the settlement near by and gathered a force of forty men, who caught the hunten and hanged them. Latest Market Reports. SIOUX CIR, Bona—Green a Cored 6H& C« Dry flint.
