Some month ago Professor Archer located in Grind Kapids oa Jeifersuu avenue and put oat bandbdls in every quarter of tho cay informing the pub l.c where he wu located, And also that he was one of the greatest ciairivoyanU knowa to the civilized world. Buii rust men who were in a tight place weie invited to consult him, with the usuranc that their little difficulties would Le straightened out. If a pock etbook was lust the looser could ascer tain where it was. or if found, who bad it. Married ladle who were troubled with fickle hatau Ji could obtain a de scnpt.on of the one who had alternated tqi adecbons of their spouses. Girls, by consulting him, could learn of their past, present and future, the number of t:mi they would be jilted, who wu trying to make their lives unhappy by winning the choice cf their hearts away, how many children would be burn to them after trey were niarned, and many other httie things about which girl are curious. He experienced no difficulty in find ing a great many credulous persons, lor private sitting he charged the sum of Later he developed as a spirit ualistic medium and htld regular seances three times a week. A limited number of persons only could be accom modated and each one had to put upoO Cent. The professor's anticipation were more than reahzed. His marvel ous revelations spread like wild fire, es pecially among women who were of a superstitious turn of mind. He was kept so busy that it was impossible to accommodate all who applied to have their fortunes to'd. With the Hood of prosperity whicn h found was sweep ing him along to financial success, he removed to rooms in the Weston block, on Canal street, v here he is now locat ed. Professor Archer professes to go into a trance and white m that condition ho performs his remarkable feats of ledgerdmain. Many people are willing to pay J3 for tha privilege of listening while he relates alleged fragments of their pst with which they are already familiar. It is necessary, however, if one des res to be present at one of the tri-weekly seances, to declare such in tentions previous to the date upon Which the soar.ee is to occur. In a room about twelve feet square, twenty persons sit, clasping one anoth er's hands, their eyes bulgingout of their sockets iu a vain endeavor to penetrate tne darknest which hovers about the place. Directly in front of them is a closet with a curtain hanging over an aperaturu. On the inside is an uphols tered chair. Before the show begins all are invited to thoroughly examine the contents of the room. The spiritualists do not avail themselves of the oppor tunity, but there are always two or three skeptics present and they feel care fully about the interior of tne closet, inspect tne walls and floor and return to their seats and clasp hands. Sud denly the curtains are drawn bark and shortly a figure, about the size of Pro fessor Archer, bot up. It extends its hands in every direction, mumbles a few words in a Sioux dialect and disap pears. Several gentlcmsn and lady spooks make their appearance. In nearly all instances the departed friends of those present are represented. The names of those in the audience arc called out. and one by one an inter view is held with a mother, sister or daughter. Even resounding kisses arc exchanged. A white, gauzy material it thrown out upon the floor. Soon the renter begins to raise, and it is not long before what at first appears to be a loose piece of cloth broadens out and as sumes the shape of a full-fledged phan tom. This is a trice upon wn.ch tne professor prides himself. About a week ao a lady medium, at one time located ;n Grand Rapids, but now in anotaer city, pa d a vis.t to tne troteeor in company with another lady. While the sp.rtts are visiting with the earthly the professor is supposed to be in a trance m another aDartmrnt. lie is stretched out upon a lounge hobnobbing with the spirits of brave Indian worriors whose names live in history made notorious by the number of "pale faces" they killed before departing to tne happy hunting grounds. 1 he lauy medium brushed a-ide all formality and entered the r rrce ncts wherein the niaterilizing med Um was enscoused.

The course of the stock market during the past week has been of a character to show that, in spite of the late dullness, it still retains elements of vitality which only need the touch of the right influences to de velop thni into lively activity. The trading of late has been almost exclu sively confined to room professionals. ana tne persistent stagnancy tempted bears into large over-selling, while :n London also the pessimists appear to have simultaneously fallen into the same trap, the short sales having in both caes been encouraged by magni fied accounts of the eltects of the recent banking failures in Berlin and of rum ored financial dangers in Paris. When later cables cut down these European exaggerations to their proper dimen sions, it was round that a mole hill nad been magnified into a mountain, and both here and in London there was a rush'' among the "lers" to cover their contracts Lut while these tests show that the preponderant feeling of the market is witn the "bulls ' and that in the ma neuvering for poitioti preparatory to the coming campaign the "bears" tiave been put ut a rather serious disadvant age, yet too much must not be inferred from these symptoms. The result is a hopeful one for the ultimate future, but not one that justifies immediate in- discriminate buying. At present, theie is unquestionl;! . a healthja confidence at the bottom oi the market, sufficient to protect prices against important drops; but conditions have not ripened into anything like a sanguine buying tcue. hvideutly, it is the desire 01 the influential leaders in speculation to avert such a profitless result of condi tions which promise to produce at a later stage an active upward movement, ml ihuir rirdfiii1 t r rAttr.in . ilia riairivT tone until it ultimately asserts itselt with tht noser of a ucnt-un force that can be no longer controlled. That is wise and good management: so far as it succeeds the prospects of the future are brightened; and it is to the interest of those contemplating buying to work in harmony witti this drill. 1 he failure of the old and influential, but very venturesome Maverick Bank through speculative alliances was a sharp shock to confidence, and the consequent withdrawal of some mill ions of money to Boston caused con siderable changing of loans with the (fleet of a temporary disturbance of. tho rates fur call mon?y. Later in the week, it was discovered that the re sources of the bank were not nearly so seriously impaired as was at first sup posed, which had the enectoi mitigat ing the unfavorable impression and re storing the composure of the money market. At the same tmi, this event, coming so closely upon the develop ments m the case 01 tne Keystone Bank and the large defalcation in a New Orleans bank, has rudely shaken whatever confidence in banking may have arisen from the check on mis management provided through official examinations." Unless such inspections can be made more searching, they will be regarded as being as much a snare as a protection. ' EMPHATICALLY DENIED- Th Sandwich ItancW Not to b Seized by th United States. "WAsnreoTOS, Nov. 15. Comaiodoro Ilamsey, who is today acting secretary of the navy, denies positively that any orders have been sent to the United Mates steamer Charleston, in China, to seize the Hawaiian islands under any state of atrairs. The Charleston when lat heard from was at Yokohama, Ja- an, and it has been tne intention to iava her return to the Unitod States as soon as the Lancaster, with Admiral Harmony aboard, reaches the China station. The Lancaster went around th Car of (lood Hone from New lork and is probahiy now somewhere in the Indian Ocean. When the Charleston is relieved she will naturally touch at Honolulu on her way home, as sne can not carry sufficient coal to make the trip direct from Asia to the United States. MAY FORM A BEER TRUST. Brewer lee la Cincinnati, Covlng-toa and 'ewprt Combine. Cincinnati, Nor. 15. A consolidation of the twenty-seven breweries in Cin cinnati, Covington and Newport is now aid to r e agreed upon by all but two of the twenty-seven breweries in the entire cities, lhese two will undoubt edly join in the movement if the plan is carried out. The idea is to accomplish a consoli dation by incorporation under the laws of Ohio, vesting the authority in a board of trustees, who would have a central office, but each brewery would be maosged by its present owners. A great reduction in eirxmsrs is claimed for the new plan, and also the virtual control of the beer trade, similar to that enjoyed in the whisky trade trust.

Jere miah S.rupoa has returned. "The alliance Congressmen will stand as one man m the speakership contest." said he. "We will cast our united vote for our candidate. Will not under any cir cumstances or in any possible contin gency aid in the election of a demo cratic candidate for speaker, no matter who may receive the caucus nomina tion. If any alliance memlwr should, however, cast his voto for any save the alliance candidate, that member here after vf ill cot be recognized as one, of us. He will be looked on as a member of the party for whose candidate he voted and be treated accordmly. Ha will not be consulted by us, nor will he bo permitted to take part iu any of our conferences. There are a number of congressmen from the south who were elected by our votes. If they do not stand with us this winter their chances of re-election next fall will be of the slimmest." There is a good deal of gofsip here concerning coming appointments to all vacancies in tho Interstate Commerce Commission, and of Circuit judges, and soon. But there is high authority for saying that' the President will make no appointments until Congress meets. The P resident has received many dele gations and an extraordinary number ot recommendations in favor "f candi dates for these places. For two vacan cies on the Interstate Commission the names of Judge Dill, of Iowa, and ex Assistant Secretary of State Porter, of Tennessee, are the most prominent mentioned. Judge Dill was a class mate of the president at Miami college, and he has all the qualifications neces saiy to fill the place. Judge Porter would be appointed as a democrat. Representative Culberson, of Texas, and ex-Mayor Glenn, of Atlanta, are also talked 'of for the place. Mr. Cul berson would prefer to be one of the circuit court judges, and it is thought that he will be nominated for a judge. Some of the New York papers are talking about making an effort to get the national republican convention called to meet iu the lammany strong hold. There is not the least prospect of any such movement meeting with success. The Nebraska senators; are here working for Omaha. Minnesota is going to make an effort in behalf of Minneapolis. A special train of "boomers" for that place will arrive here the end of next week. St. Paul is going to join in the movement. It is denied at the White House that the president has expressed any opinion on the subject or that he has said any thing against Chicago. ,. Whatever. may be the views of Ohio politicians.it isnotatall difficult to state what the opinions of republicans out side of Ohio are as to the senatorial election in that state. They are most decidedly with Mr. Sherman. The vic tory in Ohio is not regarded as simply a triumph for Major McKiuley and pro tection, it is considered fully as much a victory for honeet money, and, as John Sherman represents this phase of the contest better than any other man, his re-election would appropriately crown the victory. That at least is the opinion which is expressed by nearly every prominent republican who has discussed tho subject at Washington. The only arguments the republican op ponents of Senator Sherman have to ofl er are hi6 age and tho length of time he has been in public life. As he is (13 years old, ar.d has leprcsented Ohio in the house of representatives, the senate, or the cab.net for over thirty-fivft years, the claim is made that ho ought to re tire, and, as tho phraso goes, "give a younger man a chance." John Sher man is a dozen years tho junior of men who are taking a leading part in European politics and shaping the destinies of empires. Representa tive opinion here is that the withdrawal of Senator Sherman from public life in the near future would be a national calamity, and would come as near to being an irreparable loss as anv change of representation in Congress could in flict. V It canbe said, also, that the sugges tion, which apparently comes from the Foraker people, that Brice shall be un seated in order that both Foraker and Sherman may I e elected, is not re garded as serious here. It will be easier to talk about unseating Brue than to accomplish that result. His credentials have already been present ed to the Senate, his name has been put upn the rolls, and he has been drawing his salary since the 4th of last March. When the Senate meets on the first Monday in December Mr. Brice will appear to be sworn in. This would be atiout a month before the session of the Ohio legislature, and any objection made to his taking the oath would have to be a purely informal one. No papers of sufficient impor tance to receive recognition in the Sen at? could be prepared for presenta tion, and it is doubtful whether any senator would indertake the responsi bility of making a verbal statement. If after the legislature has con vened, a memorial snould be adopted relating to Senator Brine's retention of the seat iu the Senate that document would be sent to the vice president. Mr. Stierman or Mr. Price. It would promptly reach the Senate through each of these channels and be referred to the comnrttee on privileges and elections. This would o;vn the door to one of the most interesting fights in the history of the Senate, and m ght, if the democratic senators wrre posed, eolminate. i a deadlock such as marked the contest over the foree bill.

Senor Men donca, the Brazilian minister, this morning received the following cable gram from the minister of foreign re lations at Rio de Janeiro: "I am in receipt of your telegram of yesterday. News of succcMiion of K10 (irande do Sol or any other state is un true; we are in perfect peace. Tele grams from the capital of Bio Orande, published in today's Diario Official, ays: 'Board commercial association, rebresentatives of trade and people, went bp the governor's house and asked Gov. Costilhos in view of the cir cumstances of the state, due to causes known to him, to resign office in order to avoid material contlict. Gov. Cos til hoa resigned and a provisional junta was organized as follows: I)r. Assiz Brazil, Ir. Casol Kiberio and Gen. Osorio. Tranquility re-established and public opinion satisfied. " Minister Mendonca feels that the above telegram justifies the confidence he had had in the maintenance of peace in Brazil. He explains that Dr. Assiz Brazil, the the first member of the Junta, is a brother-in-law of Costil hos, a . member of the Brazilian con gress, a distinguished man and a good republican. When the present cabinet was formed ho was offered a portfolio, but declined it because of his large in dustrial interests and his preference for his congressional place. Ho is the author of the best book on republican institutions published in Brazil. The two other members of the Junta rep resent the national, or the old liberal party. I In view of the fact that the two lead ing political- parties are thus repre sented in the composition of the Junta, Minister Mendonca feelsj satisfied that the movement in Rio Grande do Sol is the result of a compromise of existing differences; that a conciliatory policy has prevailed, and that all danger of bloodshed has been averted. ENDED HER TROUBLES. Bnlclde of a Lady Who Unco Was Prom inent In Boetoa Society. Boston, Mass., Nov. 15. Mrs. Homer Wellington, who resides on Chauncey street in Chambers, took a dose of laud anum at about 8 o'clock Friday morn ing with suicidal intent. Her condition was soon discovered and medical aid was summoued. Every possible effort was made to save her life, but without avail, and she expired ju'at Before noon todaj. Mrs. Wellington before her marriage was Miss Nellie Boynton,and she occu- ?ied a prominent position in society, ler married life was not a happy one, and ten years ago the people of Cam bridge were ttartled to learn that her husband had attempted to kill her and her children by administering poison. He was infatuated with a bad woman. and took this means to get rid of all incumbrance. The affair made a great sensation In Cambridge on account of the promi nence ot the parties concerned, and Mr. Wellington was sentenced to prison for fifteen vears. Mrs. Wellington has has not seen a happy day sincf?, and despondency is alleged as the cause of the suicide. Wellington will oe released from the prison in about two years, re ceiving an allowance of time on ac count of good behavior. Mrs. Wei lmgton s father was wealthy at the time ot the crime of her hushand, and he his since died and Mrs. elhngton did not have a large income at the time of her death. FOR AVENCtfjG HIS SISTER. nicbard Howard f'laced on Trial for Kill Injc Colbert lltwton. ' CoixMcrs, Ga. Nov. 15. The trial of Richard Howard is now in progress. Tho 11th of Nov. last, while 1,000 peo pie were sealed in the grand -stand, Col bert Dawson drove his own horse in a trotting race. As ho passed tho home stretch three men advanced upon him and shot him dead. This tragic inci dent broke up the race. The three men were Robert and Richard Howard and John Bickcrstaff, their broiher-indaw. It teems that Robert Howard, who belongs to one of the richc? t families in Alabama, had just returned fromOnio, whither bo had gone to live. That day for the firat time he heard the story of how Culbcrt Dawson had ruined his sister, Ruth Hownrd. The girl bad Inien invited to vitit Dawson's sister, and while there the latter used the hos- f;tslity of his own house to ruin her. le was compelled to marry her, but shortly afterward ent her homo to her father, at the same time spreading scandalous stories concerning her. It was at this juncture that Robert How ard returned from Ohio. The decision was made to punish Dawson in the most pubiie manner po'siblc. At the trial it was proved that Daw. son anticipated this trouble snd was armd to defend himself, but was taken unawares. EICHTY ACRES IN CHICACO- AMinneeota Mmn Urn lMir on Land ar Jnehewa Park.

Such a person may With the best and mot serious of intentions make the illustrious dead appear to future gen- rations in a ridiculous light. ne needs but to visit the lautiful Fortst Home cemetery in Milwaukee to see an evidence of this monumental mal feasance. On one of the highest hil locks, overlooking the windiug vistas of thf) beautiful driveways and th gem like artificial lakes which sparkle in the shaded dells, surrounded by the chiseled spires and columns of snowy marble and soft-toned granite stands the Nrhlitz monument. An an gelic figure with clinging draperies stands upon the prdettal and her classic face is unturned with a smile of joyous expectation. Her right arm is extended aiott and her nngures form the eilent telegraphic signal that is most commonly used to announce an order for two beers. If the monument was not erected to commemorate a great brewer the design might not be so ludicrously suggestive but as it is, the design is a startling incongruity. The departed Schlitx is not alone in funeral misfortune. In the abbeys and cathedrals of the old world still greater men and women are held up to ridi cule. Some of the greatest of sculptors have attempted to depict a beautiful allegory in marble commemorative of the crowning act in the life of the illus trious dead. While they may have been accepted with becoming gravity 100 years ago, today they are as comical as a caricature in Puck or the Judge. In Westminster Abbey the immortal Wil terforce lies in heroic marhie; a grand figure full of dignity and majesty. But around his couch afe several white marble Africans couching in attitudes which suggest that each lias been emoking his first cigar and that the emetic stage of their disability is near at hand. The spectator involuntarily hurries away toscan possible un pleasantness. A superb monument to General Wolfe, who died in the mo ment of victory on the heights of Abra ham attracts universal attention. . The chiseling is exquisitely delicate. A friend is supporting thedyin; general's head and just above him stands an angel holding out a laurel wreath. General Wolfe makes a feeblo but in effectual attempt to reach it, and his friend, seeing his inability to do so, makes an attempt to secure the prize. He lacks about haif an inch of touch, ingit. The angel stands there with a tantalizing, coquettish smile, and wont budge an inch. You turn away with the same feeling that you expr. ienced after reading the last pg of "Tho Lady or tho Tiger." Over in poet's corner are two burlesques, m in one of which two cherubs sit on either side of a tablet. One smiles sweetly, while the other's face is puck cred up with a perfect passion of woe, while tears aa large as hazlenuts hang upon his eyelids. The two would make an excellent advertisement for Mrs. Winslow's soothing syrup one to rep resent before taking, the other after taking. Close at hand is another tab let, beside which two smiling angels are trying toVtanch their welling tears with a pair of table cloths. In St. Michael's chapel m the Abbey, is the crowning monstrosity. Lady Elizabeth Nightmgale,wife of Gascogne Nightingale, had the misfortune to die in 1731. A greater misfortune befell her thirty years later when her son, whoso filial affection could give long odds to his discretion and good taste, had ft monument carved by the renowned Roubiliac. The sculptor was a marvel in execution but he was nfllicted with a morbid imagination, as the monument itself will demontrate to the most cisual observer. Mr. and Mrs. Nightingale are on the back porch of their residence, and while en jnving the prospect of their back yard, death, represented by a ferocious-look. ing skeleton, issues from the cellar-door just beneath them. He raises a huge dart and is just in the rrt of launching it at the losom of Ins lair victim. Mrs. Nightingale falls back upon her hus band's breast, and. while that gentle man stretches out his hand toward the destroyer in a mute appeal or protest he talc verv good care not to get him self in lino with the shaft. That death succeeded in bagging his game is a foregone conclusion, but the allegory, if any is intended, is a little vague. A practical mind must gather Irom the groirp, mat me iaay was the victim of b 1 amitary comli tions. and that Mr. Nightingale is open V) censure for nnt cleaning out hs ecl lar earlier in the season.

Toledo, Nov. 15. The members cf the Bdly Emerson minstrel show awoke yesterday morning to tind that the gi gantic combination was "laisted," the gay and festite William had "flew the coop" with all the cash, and Emerson's minstrels existed only iu the memory of the dead past. It is the old story funds short, a bad streak of business, the ghost fai'e to walk, the manager salts the cah, rides out of town on the quiet, and the rest of the trouDegttoutof the to a the best way possible. Emerson's unustrels played to very light Misiness. 'B.lly." the I of thethow. settled with the loue after the performance, and that is the hut ten of him. Eaily yesterdav morning Captain Dowhng, of the Toledo transfer cam ptny, attached tho company's baggage on a claim of f21.9J for transfeirmg barcacc. Wheu the bova caught on, of eourm there was a bowl, and they warmed about the lrn bke U es.each claiming individual baggage. Trunks were delivered onlv to those who bad the required amount to liquidate the cartage.
