Tec link-ill Objection In .Ucillciil Col-
leu < * ( SrniliiHlt'M KnllH to the C round.
The final notion of the Iowa State Hoard
of Medical Examiners was a complete vlndl-
eallon of the Omaha medical colleges. The
Iowa board had refused to recognl/.e gradu
ates of the Omaha Medical college and the
John A. Crelghton Medical college on purely
technical grounds. There was no claim that
the requirements for graduation in these
two schools were not up to the standard re
quired by the board , and In fact they have
been much greater than demanded. In the
Investigation which followed even the tech
nical objection was found to be untenable
and the graduates were accorded the same
recognition as those of other schools. The
whole trouble arooo over the a'dmlsxiau to
advanced standing in these sshoolu of stu
dents from the Council DlufT ) Medical col
lege when that Institution ceased to exist.
They were admitted to advanced sUndlng
on a1 showing of work dent by tin students
In the other school. Students from Ibis
school were admitted to adv.iined standing
In several of the oldest medic" ! colleges in
the country , the standing ot whose gradu
ates was never questioned , not even in this
Instance. When this was made clear to the
board all objection to the Omaha graduates
was withdrawn.
From the fact no objection W.IB filed
against these other schools which had < 7onn
identically as the Omaliit institutions ! i&d ,
It Is thought the complaint was made for
the purpose of injmlau tli ? schools. If Hitch
was the object It signally failed , for Hie re
sult was a complete vindication tor both of
tbo Institutions.

Nothing was developed yesterday to ma
terially alter the estimate made Saturday
night of the damage done by the storm.
During the night and the early morning
hours llio windows which had been broken
were boarded up lo prevent further damage
should another rain come and many of the
prominent business blocks presented the ap
pearance of abandoned tenements. Some ,
more energetic than others , put a force of
glaziers to work nnd by night all evidence
of the visitation of hall had vanished. The
force ot men available was not sufficient ,
however , to obliterate the evidences of the
storm from all Ihe structures , und even If
It had been the supply of gloss In some
sizes would have been Insulllclcnt. It will
In all probability bo several days yet before
many of the prominent buildings will resume -
sumo their usual appearance. The Paxton
hotel was among Ihe structures which suf
fered Ihe worst , but by night yesterday there
was no evidence on the exterior ot the
building to remind the passer-by of the
storm. At the Hoard of Trade building and
several of the other largo structures the
windows were simply boarded up to await a
more convenient time lo repair the damage.

NKW VOIIK , Aug. lG.-llonry Clews , hend
of Ihc banking house of Homy Clews & Co. ,
wtltes of tht ! situation InVull street : Dur
ing the past week ( Inaiiclal affairs have de
veloped Important symptoms of Improve-
incut. There has been a distinct abate
ment of llio extreme unrest and distrust
which have BO completely controlled the
markets for so many weeks past. As In
dicated In our advices of lust week , calm
obHerve.rs hnvu reached the conclusion that
spiling'and thu fall In prices have gone
quite ns far. If not considerably further ,
than the real facts of the situation war
rant. Men of steady judgment reason that
llio demoralization has arisen from fear
of certain dangers estimated at their worst
possible consequences , and from rating ml-
verso possibilities as adverse certainties.
The counter possibilities have not been
talu'ii Into consideration at all , or else be
low their true value. The chances for the
outcome being far bettor than the appre
hensions have been almost entirely omitted
In the estimates of the situation , and val
ues have been largely adjusted to the
worst conceivable prospect.
This may have been a natural course of
fooling under such suddenly alarming con
ditions as have lately appeared , for there
Is nothing about which men are so apt to
rush Into rash precaution as their Invest
ments. Hut , however natural this process
of realizing may have been , It has certainly
been olio-sided and has gone to unreason
able lengths. It was only a question of
tlmu when holders of securities would be
gin to set off the hopeful chances against
the discouraging possibilities , nnd strike a
fairly rational imlalicu between thu good
nnd the bad in the situation.
Evidently , that stage In the demoraliza
tion hns now been reached. Strong men. of
sound Judgment nnd largo means , have
como to the conclusion that prices have
reached a level at which securities arc a
safe Investment. I irge holders who fore
saw a severe fall In prices and sold largely
of their holdings are now satlslled that
stocks have gone far below their intrinsic
value , nnd are now In the market as buy
ers of the stocks with which they parted
at higher figures. And , besides these , per
sons who have been long holding funds idle
In bank are now converting them Into
stocks and bonds under the Inducement of
bargain prices.
All this looks like a bona flde recovery
of confidence. It Implies that Judgment
has re-covered control of fear. It means
that the class who control the national
capital have carefully weighed the disturb
ing factors in finance and politics , nnd
have comito the conclusion that there Is
nothlnp In either , or In both combined , to
warrant a reduction of one-third In tlie
market value of our Investments. Also ,
this change of temper Indicates that the
shaping of political currents , in prospect of
the coming elections. Is viewed as growing
more hopeful for the perpetuation ot a
sound money policy. It shows how little
reality there was In the supposed local
apprehension about Mr. Ilryan's visit to
this city and his canvass In the eastern
states. The construction put upon the
youthful aspirant's visit has been that.
If he proved true to his platform and lo
his Chicago speech , he would so shock the
conservative and patriotic sentiment of the
country as to ruin tlie prospects of his
pai ty and produce a national revulsion
against the policy of violence which Its
platform represents. Thus , just at the
moment when New York was supiosed to
be standing in dread of the juvenile's thun
derbolts. It has cheerily welcomed him to
his exhibition of political hari-kari.
Equally , this change In the financial mar
kets may be regarded ns expressing an es
timate unon the general effect of the crea
tion of the third party.Vhlle , it Is con
ceded that the organization of the con *
Bcrvntlve democrats , wlt\ Its own set of
candidates , will carry off a large -number
of sound money democratV from Mr. Mc-
Klnley. yet It Is conceded that it will
draw from the Hryan ranks a vastly larger
number who otherwise would have voted
for him. In view of the fact that there
are very many democrats who whilst favor
ing free coinage , yet revolt against the
revolutionary spirit of the Chicago plat
form , this may be regarded as a safe con
clusion ; and Its effect is to strengthen the
chances of 'Mr. ' McKlnley's election.
These are the broader considerations
which account for thu marked change of
tone , tendency and prices In Wall street.
At the same. time , the Improved drift has
been encouraged by other causes. The
foreign exchanges have assumed an easier
tone. The supply of bills exceeds the
demand , and the market Is taltlng care
of Itself without help from the exchange
syndicate. The foreign markets are showIng -
Ing more disposition to take our stocks ,
London especially having been a free buyer.
The conviction that the corner In the sit
uation has been turned Is bringing Insti
tutions and capitalists Into the market ,
who have bought large quantities of stocks ,
and taken them out of tlie market , thereby
Miming business on a sound footing again.
While * weal ! holders have been driven out.
strong ones have taken their places , which
materially strengthens the situation on the
exchange. One very remarkable feature
of the late trying experience has been the
exhibition of financial strength through
out the nation to an extent never equaled
In any previous general financial disturb

NEW VOH'K. Aug. 18. The Stock market
last week was Influenced almost ex
clusively by Candidate Hryan and his pro
gram of speechmaklng , Heforo Mr. llryan
made his bow at Madison Square Garden
Wall street nervously apprehended that he
might say something which would Increase
his chances for success. But the hippo
drome proved to bo such a fiasco that nil
the apprehension on this account has been
thoroughly dissipated.
Wo have had as a sequel to this speech a
really buoyant feeling In the stock market.
Active stocks on an average Jumped up
llvu or six points on the disclosure of his
mass-meeting frost. For some time to
come , therefore. It can bo reckoned safely
that Mr. llryan as a bugaboo will not piny
much of a part , though before thn end of
the campaign we nro of course likely to
have other hippodromes much Ilka that
which hns just been dlwosed of.
Meanwhile prices for securities will be
governed by other things than politics. In
the highest banking circles of Wall street
It Is generally anticipated that our markets
will for the next two months bo rather
featureless waiting markets. If In Novem
ber there b the sweeping victory for Mr.
McKlnley and honest money which sane
men generally expect , thorn ought to bo lit
tle doubt ns to the establishment of a new
range of market values , reflecting the bet
ter times.which will be assured.
The most potent factor In the financial sit
uation , that which may be for the tlmu
helpful to the bear speculators , has to do
with the money market. Money Is tight
even beyond what Is yet disclosed In ordi
nary ways. The market for commercial
paper hns been practically extinguished.
The Tnoat Kilt-edged paper goes begging.
Merchants and manufacturers are on the
defensive on this account. Obligations
maturing must bo met. Extensions are
almost as hard to command as now loans
nr dltllcult to negotiate. Primarily the
lerison for all this Is a scare on the part
of thu ordinary banker. The bankers can
curu the situation themselves If they choosu
to net sensibly and In concert , but It Is by
no means certain that any such relief as
this can bo relied upon.
Much In still beard In New York banking
circles of thu Diamond Match smash In
Chicago. That rollaonB had relations Jieiu
of consequence beyond anything that has
been hinted , and sulllclent to warrant New
York bankers , they say , In taking a stand
conservative In the cxtremu as to all forms
of collateral not quoted regularly on the
New York Stock exchange.
Avaricious games played here have had
sequels far from encouraging to bmiki-ra
who have been Inclined to Join money lend
ing and speculation. Onu result Is Blioivn
In what iiracllcally la In some circles a boy.
cott of Chicago commercial paper. This Is
rankly unjust , but It Is IHIIIO the luxs thu
fact. In some Instances the antl-C'hlcaio
feeling has gone far enough even to Incite
money lenders not only to refuse ordinary
accommodation , but they have gone out of
the way fur enough almost to carry on a
crusade ngalnst the western city's ' business
Hankers ax a rule arc talking blue. Yet
every OIIH of them agrees that as soon us
the election campaign Is over we shall have
better times , easy money markets , and
opportunities for business profit beyond
jiny we have known In a dozen ycara. Gen
eral trade returns show dullnctiH. Hall-
roud earning * , however , are better than have
been anticipated All bear predictions on
that account have been wrong. The bears
were confident a week UEO that the liurllntr-
ton dividend wns to be cut down. "iet
thin week the regular rnte hns. been de
clared. Tills Is staanennt. It reflects
conditions that exist In many other.Mm Inr
quarters. The TjHJaS < s world really has
not como to nn emi , ,
. During the , nrxllLun nipnths whenever
there Is wertkiiostImTrie } } * tock market It
will be a weakness offering bargains. There
will be weakness undoubtedly over nnd
over again. The Jvjir party on Stock ex
change' Is strong ililt tnKrtrfssdve. It has
accumulated larcq..profits within the last
sixty days. In tlJcIr hammering campaign
the bears already have discounted the
worst effects that" could be expected even
It Hrynnlsm were victorious. With Hrynn-
Ism doomed every pros .icct for the" Investor
Is the prospect of HpflVrmcnt. Ualds and
sm shlng prices frtfrrll this time on ought
not to be dlscournin ! Incidents , therefore.
They will be really opportunities for getting
bargains. H. AhLiAAVAY.

CHICAGO , Aug. 15. There was a dearth
of Interest In the wheat market today.
The volume of business was small nnd out
side Inlluenccs few , September closed steady
nnd unchanged at Kc. Corn was more ac

Friday. Provisions sold off early on raiding
by the Cudahy crowd , recovering later on
buying by people .who got short early.
There was not much of a trade In wheat ,
the market ruling dull and dragging all
dny , with fluctuations limited to from He
lo U'A fairly firm feeling prevailed at
the start , after which a weak spell set In ,
but flntil figures were unchanged In Sep
tember , while December was up Vic Mod
erate northwest receipts , higher cables and
fair exports for the week were responsible
for the early firmness. Liverpool was up
Ud and thnn Argentine shipments w ro
moderate. The closing Uerlln cables \vere
a shade higher. Thern were no cabfcS
Irom Paris , owing to a holiday. The mar
ket rallied near the close on reports of
liberal cable acceptances at seaboard.
The corn tnnrkoti exhibited very little
activity , ruling dull most of the day within
a % c range. The fqellng displayed at the
start was easy , after which there was a
moderate rally , and final figures showed
a slight advance. There was little news at
hand. The movement Is liberal and the
weather good. Hecclpts were about as
looked for.
Oats were stronger , with a fnlr trade
and prices advanced from ic to % c from
the low point and closed at the top with
a gain of Uc , The feature was the mod-
etate offerings and the fair covering by
shorts. Some changing from September to
May was Indulged In at 3c difference.
Provisions sold off early , but rallied and
closed showing fair gains in everything
except September pork , which exhibited a
decline of 15c as compared with yesterday.
The Cudahy crowd hammered this future ,
causing the weakness mentioned As a
result of the early selling the crowd got
short , making It necessary to buy In later ,
causing the rally. There was some chang
ing of September lard. Yesterday offers
were made to curry It to January for 40e
and today at fromMOc toIS'.ic was paid.
There was a better cash demand for lard
and a moderate demand for markets. Sep
tember york opened at JG.So , broke to } C ,
rallied to Ji.20 ; and closed at { a.m. Sep
tember lard started at W-271 , ' ' , broke to
$3.22 % and rallied to from $3.30 lo $3.i2 A at
the close. September ribs opened at W.Si
bid. sold at that price and advanced to
J3S2' ' & at the close.
Estimated receipts for Monday : Wheat ,
110 cars ; corn , CM crirs ; oats , S0 ! cars ; hogs ,
23,000 head.

LONDON , Aug. IS. The American market
has dominated the Stock cxchanee during
the past week. The settlement showed
only comparatively small accounts open ,
one small failure and some few African
plungers who recently turned their atten
tion lo Americans severely pinched. The
news of Hrynn's failure to make an im
pression upon the people of New York
caused prices to rebound ns violently as
they were 'Put ' down recently , while the
record of the gold qrushlng report from the
Hand put spirit Into the African markets
and Indirectly Influenced nil markets. Kor-
tlgnerH are linn , except Grecian stocks ,
which nro weak , owing to reports of an
entanglement of Greece In the Cretan
troubles. London docks have fallen sharply
on the statement that the Peninsular and
Oriental Steam Navigation company hns
bought land with the Intention of building
Its own wharves on the Thames. It IK
believed , however , that the company will
come to terms with the dock commission
nnd avoid the necessity for the new
uhnrvcH , Americans declined slightly on
Saturday on realizations , but the market
shows n general rise varying from 1 to 3
points on the week.
