ummit of which stands a hull with
lead tossed defiantly. At the foot a
iuar sits in u dejected attitude. In the
econd vignette the scone is the same ,
nit the smile has left the old Kontlo-
nun's face , and ho is regarding the
ape with some alarm. The market is

cut has had a heavy tumble. On
he border the bull is tumbling head-
oromost down the hill and the bear
B sitting on the summit triumphant
L'ho scone illustrates one of the diap
ers of the story ot the "ticker. "
JOBS exaggerated scones of joy , doubt
uul despair are enacted around the
unfeeling little instruments every day.
I'he tape convoys messages of for-
tinea won or fortunes lost , of riches
or of ruin. Wherever a "tickor"
> lacud in a public resort men g.ither
lontinually around it until it ceases to
give quotations. Hut they are chance
: omcrs , who have dropped in to see
low a certain stock or the market in
jeneral is going , and "they are
seldom large opesators. T a
aniline speculators are to be
leen hovering over the tape in the
otlice of the brokers near the stock
exchange. They impatiently watch
every quotation , and when operating
' catch the market" that is , buy or
sell at the price then ruling before it
las a chance to change. Messengers
are in waiting to convey their orders
to the brokers on the Hour of the ex
change. The employes of the ex
change find the broker and give him
; he order. The broker does exactly
as ho is ordered. If buying "at
market , " ho does the best he can.
As he makes a purchase or a sale
; ho reporters of the Gold it Stock
Telegraph company note it , and then
: he work of the "tickor" begins.
Eight reporters are on the floor of
; he Exchange , and the head reporter
is Mr. C. M. Beecher. They wear
blue caps with gold bands , and the
letters "G & S. " All are skilful
telegraph operators , and are selected
for their intelligence and alertness.
The different stocks on the list are
iroportioned among them , and each
) iio haa a certain line to look out for.
Wherever one sees business done ho
: akes down the quotations. He has a
wd of paper about five inches in
ongth by three inches in width , ruled
in perpendicular lines. At the head
of each line is the abbreviations of a
stock title , as "Iv. T. , " for Missouri ,
Kansas , and Texas. An ho catches
, ho 11 notations ho jots them
down in the lines under the
> roper titles. Having got
; he latest quotations on such stocks
as are active , ho hastens to the near
est tolegraphicinstrumo..t. T libra are
thirteen instruments in different
jarts of the room. The reporter rates -
, ! es oll'his quotations as fast as possi-
3(0 ( , and renews his search for in-
'ormation. The brokers aflbrcl thorn
every facility for gathering news , and
often gave them notes of quotations.
In this way the report is made very
complete , and few quotations are
miHsed. At the close of business each
reporter makes up a list ot the closing
prices and liindn ; it to Mr. Heecher ,
who telegraphs the figures to the olli-
ces of the ( Jold it Stock Telegraph
In the receiving room in the fourth
story of the Western Union bnil'ling
arc six clerks with instruments before
them. The central tiguro is the oper
ator who receives all the dispatches
from the reporters of the Stock Ex
change , lie writes them quickly and
plainly on a slip of paper and sticks it
in a frumo in front of him. The frame
is so placed that the two opurulorHcan
see the figures plainly. The operator
on tho' right runs the stock "tickers' "
and the one on the left the general
tickers. " The first-named
news - oper
ator has a set of black and white keys ,
precisely like a piano , sut before him ,
The keys are marked with letters and
numbers. That keyboard operates all
the stock "tickers" in this oity and
"tickers" as far away an Newark aiid
Orange. The operator reproduces
every quotation , The general nowii
operator takes the more important
quotations. Ho also reproduces what
appears on a tape of Kiornan's finan
cial "ticker" that reels ofi' buforo him.
Ho works on a keyboard of different
pattern , in which the keys are sot in
two concentric circles. Those are the
two < rcat and important diviHions of
the "tickor. " It is estimated that
when business in the exchange is run
ning at an ordinary rate a quotation
can bo caught by the reporter , tele
graphed to the central oflico , bo sent
out again and reappear on all tapes
inside of half a ininuta. When busi
ness in livelier the operators fall Home-
what behind the quotations , but live
minutes is the oxtrcmo time of delay.
A broker makes a ale , and before ho
can get back to his oflioo , u few blocks
away , it ia there on the "tickor"
ohoad of him. The two other
operators in fho receivinjj
room receive reports from tlu
Mining Exchange and send them oul
on the mining "ticker. " There ia
another instrument in the room wjiich
records in telegraphic dots-and
every dispatch received from the
and mining exchanges. It is intend
ed to act as a check on the reporters
and the receiver if a dispute should
atiso concerning a dispatih Oppo
site the operators is a complete dupli

Ilio Gold and Stock Telegraph com
pany controls individually nil those
tickers , except the last named , which
it manages for Senator .John ,1. Kier-
nan. The Kiernan financial ' 'tickers"
report only a few of the stock quot\-
tions , but give general financial news
and other news of interest frrnu all
over the world. Ho controls the
portion of the city below Chambers

above Clumbers street by the goner , * !
nowa "ticker" of the Hold and Stock
Uoaidus having reportois in the
Stock Exclmgo , the comp.iny has
similar reporters IM the mining , pro
duce and cotton exchanges. Their
reports are received by opor.itors in
the largo hall of the Western Tnion
telegraph company , and are aent out
from there. The time "tickers" are
furnished to travelers railroads , and
other offices whore the exact tune is
desired. It is an adjunct of the time
ball , which falls precisely at noon on
on the polo on the summit
of the Western Union building.
The little instrument a jeweler
shop boats every two seconds , and at
the beginnin | ; of each hour and quar
ter-hour strikes like an ordinary
"Tickera" arool twokii.dsof manu
facture. Some print a continuous
line on a narrow tape , anil others
print two lines on a wider tape , one
being the title of the stock ami the
other its price. The single line instru
ment is run by weights , and the two-
line , or throe-wire instrument , ia run
by electrical powor'from the central
otlice. The lfi ( > 3 or more "tickers"
are on dilferent circuits , averaging
from twenty to forty "ticki-rs ' to a
circuit. Each circuit is visited daily
to see that it is in running order. The
inspectors visit each "ticker" twice a
week to clean it , ink the pads , supply
lie tape and ascertain if it is in good
Woodworking order.
The work of the ' 'ticker ' isnotcon-
ined to this city. Mr. fJuorgo W.
Scott , the superintendent , furnished
i report of the "tickers" in operation
> y the company in other largo cities.
These "tickers" arc , however , not
vorkod direct from the Now York
oflices. The quotations are sent to a
central operator in the other cities ,
ind ho sends thorn to the "tickers. "
Among the cities having the
greatest number of "tickers" are :
Joston , 111 ; Chicago , 142 ; Hal-
imore , ! )1 ) ; Cincinnati , 70 ; St.
"iouis , ! ) ; Buffalo. 4 ! ? , and Cleveland ,

cnown in Chicago in less than two
ninutos. The reporters and opora-
.ors are so skilful that a mistake is
rare The brokers aroJvnok | to no-
; ice an error , and a correction is at
once made.
Ladd , who has an otlice in the
jtock Exchange , is the oflicial timo-
ceoper. At 2:30 : p. in. each day - the
regular time for closing of dolivcrios
of stock a wire from Ladd's oflico is
witched on to the "tickers , " and the
'amiliar fifteen beats are sounded.
After that time no deliveries of stock
an bo made.

How Much Longer.
'o York Star
How much longer can the country
land the present tendency to pile up
vealth in a few hands/ / This question
_ jahm importance every month. It is
only necessary to look at the facts to
see what tremendous possibilities aio
"odged in the hands of a very few
non , through corporations which eon-
rol the transportation interests of
, hc country , and own the iron and
coal oiland manipulate itn legislation.
Tt in only necessary to look at some of
ho patent'faetH to see what perils lie
it the end of the road wo are driving
over at almost lightning speed. He-
: ere the war there were very few men
; n the United States over ( ivo mil
lions of dollaiH. Most of Stewart's
property was acquired during and af
ter thpvyar. Moat of the mennow worth
ten millions and upward were consid
ered poor and honest twenty-five years
igo. TodayV. . II , Vanderbilt has
? Ufi,000,000 in I nitcd Slates bonds ;
ind ho is reported to hold some § 50- ,
000,000 in Now Vork Central and
Hudson Ilivor stock , § 50,000,000
more in other lailwayo in this and
other states , and a vast amount of
valuable real estate in this city His
jiroporty cannot amount to loss than
8200,000,000 , and probably in nearer
$ : JOO,000,000 than the lormor num.
Ho is , without question , the richest
man on the globe to-day. He could
buy up any of the Rothchilds and
still bo the richest , man in the world.
And , unlike the rich men of England
the Dukes of Hedford , Westminis
ter , Argyll and Huccloh , who inherit
ed their great estates Yandorbilt'u
property has been accumulated in two
ieneriUionH ; , and most of it within
thirty years , The case stands with *
out parallel in history ,
It is u ninguliir list of names that
follow tnat of Vanderbilt in this cata
logue. Wo take each at his reputed
valuation. Jay Gould , § 100,000,000.

the it * , v ltioh Di uio Tnion is too
long to give. The world has never
before witnuaaed such a rapid accu-
mulat on of we.ilth in so short a time
in a few handsasintho Tinted Slatea ,
during the lust thirty years. Tt is
true that n feu- Unmans , during the
corrupt era of Roman History , when
carpet , b.it ; rule wivs jit iU height and
Consuls pillaged at will , amassed fab
ulous fortunes. No confidence1 what
ever can bo placed in the estimates
which have como down to us , which
ditlor too widely to be harmonised
Hut , according to the accounts , the
real estate of Cri'osus , the Lydian
Kins ; , the richest man of antiquity ,
was worth only 880,000,000 , about
two thirds the value of Vandorbilt's ,
and his house cost $4,00,000 while that
of Yauderbilt will coat ? : t,000,000.
Tim value of the late W. 15. Aster's
real estate was worth more at the time
of hia death than that of any uncrown
ed head in Hnropo.
The aignilie-uice in tlu-ae facts ia that
in moat instnncos the rapid increase of
wealth has boon duo to corporate ,
legislative or conureasional action.
Moat of those men Imvo either direct
ly influenced or manipulated 1 giala-
turca , or have pmfitod by their acta.
They have amassed their itmnimac for
tunes in part thrombi the noligonco ,
thu trenchory , the corruption of men
elected by the people to protect and
promote tlioir interests. Notoriously
lias this Iwcii the eaao with some of
the men whose names we have men
tioned. How many men in the I nited
States have prolitcd by the enormous
grants of the public lauds , of which
JWO.OOO.OOO acres have been pillaged
from the people' Hut thu alarming
thing is that these men are more in
terested than over in acquiring prop
erty by questionable meansand are con
stantly combining with each other to
inlluouco legist ill roa and governors ,
to bring a pressure to bear on Con
gress and the courts , and to corrupt
ollieinls when they need ollicial aid.
What immense possibilities of corrup
tion men like Gould and Field and
Vandorbill possess" " And it is a no
torious fact that within twenty years
' 10 character of our legislators has
.implotely changed , and men ehimor
j bo elected , though the salary does
ot cover the coat of living at Albany ,

The question forces itself luck up-
n tlu Xiuurican people with treinen-
iluous emphasis. How much longei
an this thing g o on with safety to the
onutry and its instituctions. Wo
.ay . nothini ! against wealth , nothing
igainst the owners of property. A
'ew splendid instances of morn than
irincely liboralty on the part of our
ich men show that wealth in seine
ands becomes a public benefaction.
\11 honor to I'eter Cooper and George
Senoyand other rioh uion like them ,
vlio , instead of upending fortunes in
: orrnpting Legislatures and proatitut
ng the iionch , in order U still fur-
her enrich themselves by robbing the
leoplo , use their surplus moans to
mild up and endow useful institutions

'ich ' men because they are rich. But
.ho fact that within thirty years there
lias boon such an unparalleled increase

ivoagoncy , and that gigantic fortunes
ire being used now in many instances a *

ation for the robbery of tliu people to
iggrandiso men already rich , tolls its
own tale and points its own moral.
