AN AMERICAN CORNERED , How a Dishonest Proaldont Failed to Boar His Stock. A CLEVER -FOREIGN SATIRE. It Shows the Idea Held Abroad Con cerning the Habit or Scientific Stealing On Scale. Cornered. Under the head "An American Cor- ; ior , " n rccnnt number of the St. Jnmcs Gazette prints the following clover sat ire : From Eoklcl U logins , President of the Now York ft PorUopolh railroad , to John Stam ford , General Manager of the sumo. Ni\V YOUK , Sopt. 1 , 189 . My Dear Sit1 : nm sorry that you wcro unable to coma to Now York to consult with mo further on the subject of our last conversation. I hivvo , however , laid the matter before flvo of our directors , and they nil agree that now will bo an excellent time to depress the stock and recover at lower quotations what wo have sold nn the late riso. The road is doing EO marvellously well that at the next soinl-annual meet ing of directors wo shall bo able to per manently increase our dividends. That will give the stock a grout impetus , and send its price many points higher. Therefore , before this meeting it is ne cessary to do something to break the price , nnd obtain some more stock for ourselves. A very largo quantity of our shares are hold in London , and wo must contrive to make the Englishmen sell ; and , as you know , it takes a good heavy fall , with considerable bud news , to force the Britishers to part with anything they fancy. The railway horizon has been so clear lately that a good , sharp war ot rates would have a most demoralizing cITcct on the market , and would undoubtedly send prices tumbling. Wo will , there fore , at once inaugurate ono by reduc ing rates on all classes of business. Our financial condition is so good that a short railway war will notdo , us much harm ; and , of course , as soon as wo have forced the price of the stock down sufficiently low , and got as much of it as wo want , .the rates will bo restored and the war cease. I have already "gone short" of the stock. As boon as you can make the necessary nrrangoinonts , issue an announcement that , on account oftho underhand way the other roads are behaving and the vast amount of secret rate-cutting now in forced in solf-do- progress , wo are - - fence to reduce our rates. Very faith fully yours , E. HioQiNS. From John Stamford to his Brother Frank Stamford. PoHKorous , Sopt. 4. Dear Prank : You have oflou asked mo to give you a tip by which you could make something on the market ; but I have always bcon afraid to toll you any secrets. However , ns you are now in England and several thousand miles away from the specula tive conlor , 1 don't mind giving you a tip.New New York & Porkopolis stock is now , soiling at 105 ; before you got this let- "tor it will have dropped to 95 ; a week later it will bo at 00 ; and at that llguro you can safely buy it , for that is to be the bottom , 'in thrco months from now it will bo soiling at 120. Your affec- . tionutc brother , JOHN. Extract from tho"Now YorkStockbrealcor,1 Scptemb'cr 10. The announcement that the New York & Porkopolis railroad had made a re duction of 60 per cent on all classes oft traflic fell like a thunderbolt on the Exchange - t change yesterdayand gave the "bears" .their long-wished-for opportunity to smash the markot. Prices wont down with a runnnd , Now York& Porkopolis , which opened at 105 , sold , below par. The manner in which this and certain other stocks wore raided plainly showed the existence of a strong "boar" clique organized to depress prices. The other roads will meet the cut at onco. and the situation is , to say the least , decidedly gloomy. Another oxtr.tct from same , September 1G , The railroad war waxes liercor and fiercer. The Now York & P.orkopolis lias made a still further reduction in passenger rates , and is already carrying freight at nominal prices. Strange to Baytho market has shown a remarkable undertone ; and although the "bears" have vigorously assailcu it , they have , during the past two days , been unable to make any impression on prices. Twice they have forced Now York & Porkonolis down to 95 ; but at that fig ure it has shown remarkable elasticity and almost immediately rebounded to 90.97. Largo blocks have bean taken for London account , and it seems as though some strong parties on the other Eido of the Atlantic wcro sustaining this markot. From Ezclticl HlgRlns to John Stnmfor'l. Nuw YOUK , Sept. 17. Dear Stom- ford : I find that it is absolutely impos sible to buy How York" & Porkopolis stock without running the price up. The instant a bid is made for it it bounds up as though cornered ; and RO far from being able to got "long" of the stock , I have not yet been able to cover my "shorts. " My broker tolls mo that London has boon purchasing heavily , and that all my sales have been talcon on English account. Tbo rate war has lost its elTcct , and so now wo must have a big strike all over the sys tem , It is no use doing things by halves. If we don't break the market somehow wo bhull bo unable to meet our contracts. Therefore , issue a general order that on account of the heavy losses ttio road has recently incurred the wages of all engineers , conductors , switchmen , dro mon , trackmen , yardmen and mechanics lira reduqod by0 percent. Not a man on the road will stand that and in a wcok wo shan't have a train running on the on tire system. If that doesn't bcaro these Englisk fanciers of our stock into soiling I shall bo surprised. Yours very faithfully , E. HiaaiNS. Extract from tlio New York Stocltbrcaker , Oct&bcr , Yesterday , ns had boon expected for some days pust'a glgiintio strike took place on the Now York & Porkopolis , nnd not awheel hns boon turned during the last twenty-four hours. In spite of ! ? this gloomy outlook the market has shown extraordinary strength , and all efforts of the "boars" have boon un III availing. London appeared as a buyer on ovcry blump , and fresh purchases of Now York & Porkopolis were made 3fK the Britishers. The porclstoncy with which this stock has bocn bought for foreign account is . - . - . a pu/--.lo to the "etroot" and well known - a broker to day in commenting on it ron rlted that there was a mauvtiis quart u'houru in Btoro for Eouie one. Another extract from same October 10. The wildest excitement rolgnod on ' "Clwngii" yesterday. N.O sooner had the goner sounded thun an excited crowd gathered around the Now 1'orlc fc Poi-konolia corner , and bidding for that otocu commenced ; but while tliorc wore dozens of blotters with orders to buy , there wore nppurontly no sollors. and the stock was rapidly bid up amidst the wildest excitement. It jumped flvo nnd six points at n time until it stood at 180 , and nt that figure some purchases wore Directed ; but only enough stock was forthcoming to whotlho appetite of these who wanted If nnd then H con tinued its upward career until it reached 2-50 , nt which prlco it now stands. Many "boar" votoraiiB have fallen in the com bat ; nnd it is rumored that a largo and well known operator , who Is also n rail road president , is in trouble. If this report - port bo true , some curious revelations may bo expected. Another extract from same , October 11. The deal in Now York & Porkopolis culminated yesterday with the most dis graceful revelations. Mr. Ezekiel Hlg glns , president of the road , announced that ho was unable to meet his engage ments , being heavily short on the stock , which had been cornered by a clique of London capitalists , the banking firm of Brnchrach Brothers being said to bo at its head. With his failure was also an nounced that ot five directors of the same road. What n reflection' on our national credit. The directors and president of ono of our largest corporations forced into bankruptcy through "bearing" the shares of the company of which they are the head. It appears now that the war of rates and tlio strldo wore both Inaugurated for the express purpose of smashing the marlcot ; but that by some moans Brach- raoh brothers discovered the plot , and immediately organi/.cd a syndicate to corner Now York & Porkopolis. The brokers of this syndicate had orders to buy every share of that road olTorod for sale ; and not only has it now obtained entire control of the company , but It has laid hors do combat some of our foremost , and apparently . most . unscru- . _ . _ _ - 4 - t t pulous , operators. President Hlgglns and General Manager Stamford both resigned last night , From Frank Stamford to his Brother , , lohn Stamford : LONDON , Oct. 15. Dear John : Thanks for the tip. I had no money to invest myself ; so I wont to Alfred Brnchrach , of Brachrach Brothers , and ottered to give him some information. Ho said if ho used it ho would pay handsomely , so I gave him your letter. He sent mo a cheque for 1,000 to-day. Hope you did woll. How the stock did go up ! Your affectionate brother , FiiANK. Their Only Medicine Chest. William W. B. Miller , Docrlodpo , Mon tana , writes : "I have been using Biunnnr.Tii's Piu.s for the last thirteen years , and though I have had nine children , I have never had n doctor in the house , except three times , whun wo had an epidemic of scarlet fever , which wo soon banished by a vigorous USD of BIIAN- niiEin's PILLS.

" The term uncle's , as applied to a pawnbroker's shop , sajs a writer in Notes and Queries , is said to bo a pun on the Latin word uncus , a hook. Pawnbrokers employed a hook to lift articles pawned before spouts wore adopted. "Gone to uncus , " therefore , is exactly tantamount to the modern phrase , "up the spout. " In French the concierge of a prison is called uncle , be cause the prisoners are "kept there in pawn'1 by the government. In the seventeenth century a usurer was called "my unclo" in the Walloon provinces because of his near connection with the spendthrifts , called in Latin nepotos , nephews.

HAD BLISTERS ON THEIR HANDS. Tills Was Many Years ARO , and Thcso Sturdy Sons of Toll Arc Now Worth Milllnnfl-A Ne braska Crocsui. Golilcn Dreams llcnllzul. The recent death ot Jiimos C. Flood , the money king , hns rocnllod his pro gress from poverty to nHluonco nnd In- liucnco nnd naturally recalls to the Now York Telegram the circumstances that in half a century or loss of time have pro duced so many mon whoso dollars run up to the seven figures. Ono does not have to go very far back to discover the ploboinn origin of some of our most wealthy citizens. John Mnokay Flood's partner In days gone by who has married his daughter to a prince , once wore on his hands thorough rough blisters raised by the pick of the minor. Flood was the partner of ' 'Billy" O'Brien in the proprietorship of "Tho Auction Lunch Rooms , " that nourished about twenty years ago on Washington street , opposite the San Francisco Post- ollico. They wore small dealers , the lunch supplied was cooked by Mrs. Flood and brought down to the saloon by her. It consisted of a round of beef , a few potatoes and some broad , butter and radishes. The two other bonanza kings wcro Mackay and Fair. Flood and 6'Brion ran the saloon to make money for working tlio Consolidated Virginia. Machay attended to the minor's work and Fair attended to the deals. They have later had "not a few troubles and bickerings that caused dissensions , but the money still stays with each. It is not so many dozen years since the founder of the Astor family came to this country as a small dealer in furs. Ho bought land where it could bo ob tained for almost one of the tunes of an old tambourine , and held it until it promised too much to bo easily parted with. Its value grow at oven a greater rnto than did his progeny. The disas ters of 1837 wore taken advantage of by William B. Astor in that memorable year. Ho bought up real estate at ex tremely low prices , and so assiduously devoted his talents , time and money to the acquisition of land that ho had 825,000,000 worth of It to divide at his death in 1875. This land "corner , " as it maybe called , which each generation has added to. has gathered , as the fixed stone is said to gather the moss , the almost fabulous pile that has made the nnmo and fame of the family known in this and every other land where Mam mon has its votaries. There is Jay Gould , whoso wealth has boon estimated at $300,000,000. Ho caino to Now York from a little village up the state with nothing'but a plucky spirit , a lively temperament nnd a pat ent for a mousetrap "and n good tr.vp it was , " ns his son George said recently on the witness stand in one of the city courts. Since then Gould lias dealt in traps designed for bigger game for lambs , bulls and even boars and has become in financo.a weasel that is hard to catch asleep. Previous to the death of his wife whom ho loved dearly ho was known as a humorous follow at times ; and when , not long ago , stories concerning his bad state of health wore circulated , ho olTorcd proofs of their falsity in the fact that he "could shake Wall street to its foundations by simply standing on the steps of the Slock Kx- cnango building and waving his hand. " Cyrus W. Field began life ns a clerk in n New England store , and was once employed by the late A. T. Stewart at the munificent salary of SSOayoar. This was not quite to his liking and ho took to soiling newspapers. Ho had a faculty of keeping money and knowing how to invest it. His pile is estimated at abaut $20,000,000 , and if you were to ask him how ho inado it ho would answer : "Hard work. That will accomplish any thing. " Ho received , it is said , $ -500,000 from Colonel Elliott F. Shepard for his newspaper property , the Mail and Ex press. Shepard who , by the way , is also a millionaire , but who was simply a poor lawyer until luck secured him an nl- linnco with ono of the Vanderbilt girls has already derived moro fame from his newspaper property than Field could over hope to attain as a news paper man. Love gave Shepard his million , but to the bible ho owes his fame. Andrew Carnegie , the author of "Triumphant Democracy , " began life's labors as a boy in a cotton mill. Ho was successively engineer , telegraph messenger , operator , railroad divi sion superintendent and oil specu lator. Ho is now a 'millionaire iron manufacturer , and-not unmindful of his early days. He has two hobbles , co-operation and education , and unsel fishly devotes money and time to their propagation. Ho says "a man who dies worth n million dollars dies in dis grace. " That ho is in earnest is shown in the fact that ho gives away , every years , seven or eight times as much money as ho spends. Senator John J. Jones , of Nevada , who is several time a millionaire , is the most popular senator who visits Now York. The announcement in any of the dailies to the olToct that ho is in town is sufllciont to bring to him crowds of visitors. But the friends whom the senator most welcomes are not members of 'first class sonioty , but horny-handed sons of toil with whom the world has not dealt very leniently. They know the senator from the early days of California , when ho worked be side thorn for a day's pay. Ho doesn't forgot old. tlmoa , or fall to remember the old friends who shared the vicissi tudes of his younger days. Some years ago ho mot with reverses that nearly reduced him to his old position at the foot of fickle fortune , but a boom in the Consolidated Virginia mine sot him on his foot again and ho once moro rolls in millions. Potter Palmer , the Chicago million aire , earned his first salary as a clerk in a little country store in a Pennsylvania village. Ho madtfini money by Judi cious investments inrlTal ostnto in Chicago cage , and though Ml lost S2.COO,000 , In the Chicago Ilro nnd had to borrow on mortgages SI ,500,000 , to retrieve him self , ho is ngaln qri typ , with several snare millions to push his schemes along. r * "Llttlo Jake ? ' Soltgmnn , of Michigan , who has n couple of millions at his com mand , is a director in nine banks and four railroads , and is the owner of a largo amount of roaj estate. Ho wont to Michignn twontv-flVo years ago with only $100 in his poukoti Ho started in the clothing business on n borrowed capital of $200 , and , , epont the $100 ho had in hiring n bras ? band and four horses nnd scattering circulars advor Using his business. Physically h" doesn't amount to much , as ho stand0 only five foot high , but his standing in the community is not to bo gauged by this for ho is " " and , a "big gun" very popular. St. Paul has n man who owes his for tune to a streak of good luck. His nnmo is Donnls Ryan , nnd ho began his cti- roor on a western railroad with a pick and shovel. That was in the days when labor was highly repaid , nnd , as Dennis was very tlU'ilty , ton years' savings placed him above dependence. Ho al ways had nn eye to the future , and ono investment of $5,000 in aColoradcnnlnp , which ho made a few years ago , is said to have netted him $2,000,000. , Edwin Blowltt , president of the First National bank of Fremont , Nob. , is re garded as n typical Ncbroskan by his follow citizens. At the ago of thirteen he drove an ox-team across the plains , barefooted and friendless ; at olghtcori ho was $10,000 in debt. Ho is now' at the head of ono of the largest horse ranches in the west and worth over a million. The women of America who have sprung to wealth from poverty in a few years would make a creditable list , a fair sample being Mrs. Parnn Stevens , who owns.tho Victoria hotel In Now York , and who was in her girlhood a waitress in a'Lowoll , ( Muss. ) restaurant. Her husband began life as a stable boy. Both are now worth $0,000,000 , and the hotel is the headquarters for the English aristocracy of this country. Disarming ; nn Unseen P.ic. 'This was sometime a paradox , " as Hnmlot says. Since , however , the people of America and other lands have ucou enabled to nit Hostottcr's Stomach Uittcrs against that un seen /oo , malaria , it is no longer a paradox , but an easy po sibility. Wherever malaria evolves Its misty venom to poison the air , and decaying unwholesome vegetation im pregnates the water , there , in the very stronghold of miasma , is the auxiliary potent to disarm the fee nnd ussuro efllcient protec tion. Fever nnd ague , bilious remittent , dumb ague and ague cake , no matter how tenaciously they have fastened their clutch on the system , are llrst forced to relax their grasp and eventually to abandon it altogeth er. But It is its preventive force that should chiefly recommend the bitters to persons dwelling In malaria-cursed localities , for it is a certain buckler of defense against which the enemy is powerless. Cures , likewise , dyspepsia , rheumatism1 , kidney and bilious ailments. . ' _ , A iMiH.sli.fi Jloir.
