CHICAGO , Oct. 13. Today's wheat marl -
l < et was in many respects similar to yes
terday's. Opening strong and higher on
bullish cable * . It yielded later under u
Hood of realizing Kales , but covered sharply
near the close. The day's udvuncj was Vs'tf
C-8c. Corn und oats were llrm. corn ad
vancing l-SfoUc nnd oatH 3-Sc. Colder
weather In the yclluw fever district caused
n. better provision market , prices being 2'.i '
< 2 < 7c higher at the close.
Whe.it opimtd < iullo strong nt a sharp
advance over lust night , December Martini ;
a cent higher at GJUftKi 3-Sc. for un hour
the bulls were disposed to crowd their advantage -
vantage nnd bullish news came thick ana
lust. It was noticeable however , that the
market wan making little headway , and , In
vluw of HH action yesterday , then- wad a
nunplclon of turther important but qulot
nelling- Though prices wuru higher , thu
market did not have the sumo power of ul > -
norptlon taut was a featuru during thu ad
vance yesterday. The tact that many pco-
jilo were overloaded acted as a damper on
the market. This class was as a ruli. dis
posed to sell on all haul spots. Lord KOMIN.

nil advance of lOr per bbl. In all leading
grades of Hour , reported Hales of 2IO,0 ) liu.
fash wheat here and reported continued
export engagements at thu seaboard
till contributed to the strength. After
thn llrst hours trading the advance
became too heavy for the market to sus
tain. Sellers Wire encouraged l > y reports
from New York that leading export houses
iwcro selling wheat and that there were
iici acceptances of offers to liu United
Kingdom or the continent. Northwest re
ceipts showed the effect of recent bad
iwcathcr , Minneapolis and Duluth reporlliif ;
h57 cars , compared with SCI tan/ last week
nnd 781 a year ago. Chicago receipts , however -
over , were heavy at 303 cars , and thu total
at all primary points was l,6Ci,000 ! bushels.
'Tho market drifted baik to CU u before It
became evident that the market had been
oversold. Then prices Jumped very rapidly ,
and In their efforts to cover aborts ran the
jirlccs back to C5c , and very llttlo reaction
Irom that figure followed. New York re
ported 72 boat loads engaged for export.
The days seaboard clearances were large.
822,000 bushi-lH. Tills was quite Influential
during the closing moments of the session.
December closed llrm at Cl 7-8c.
There was a big general trade In corn
parly , and a good ndvnttcn was recorded.
The market In a general way sympathized
rwlth wheat , but was helped also by bullish
rountry advances and largo export saljs.
JtccPlpiK were Kft cars. The market weak
ened somewhat later In the. day on realiz
ing and .selling believed to bo for th ? ware
housemen. That pressure removed , l o mar
ket quieted nlown and was rather uull for
the rent of the ncsslon. December ranged
from SOHc to 307-Se , and closed 1-S'jjUe
higher nt 305-Sf30 ( | Hc.
Oats were strong all day on a limited
tradingI'rlces were well maintained. Re
ceipts wera small , 322 cars. The strength
of wheat was the main factor. May ranged
from 23 l-8 23'/iC to 23 3-8c , and closed 3-Sc
higher at 233-8c.
Provisions showed Improvement both In
tone and in volume ot trading. Colder
fweather In the south and belief that the
rover would bo checked was an Incentive to
buy and prices advanced all around.
Ilnst prices werj not maintained , however ,
realizing being quite free at times. At the
rlose January pork was 7Hc. higher at $9.10 ;
January lard 5c higher at $4.92's and Janu

NEW YORK. Oct. 13.-Tho advance In
prices in today's stock market was even
moro slgnlllcant of the Improved tone ol
speculative sentiment than that ot yester
day. For one reason this was true bocnUM
quite a large short Interest was eliminated
from the market by yesterday's advance ,
Another factor that might have be = n util
ized by thu bears was the depression In
foreign markets so marked as to suggest
some knowledge of pending political com
plications In the dcpvr financial currents.
Not only was this Indicated by the heavi
ness of securities a call of 6-16 In British
consols and of 15 centimes In 1 < rt-nch
rentes but the cxclttd condition of the
foreign wheat markets.
The opening In Wall street brought orders
to sell 15.000 shares or upwards of stock
for London account. Thebears' did avail
themselves of this opening , but the manner
In which all offerings , botn for London ami
tor iho snort accounts was absorbed took
all thn assurance out of them and their
only other aggressive movement during the
remainder of the day was a drive aKiilnnt
Tobacco. The bears huve > counted much
on the damaging effects of the war in thu
sugar refining industry , thu conflict over
the plug tobacco trade and the reported
divergence of Ideas among the powers of
Northern Pacific over the question of a
dividend on the common stock to check any
advance In the market on account of very
favorable returns ot railroad earnings and
the generally prosperous outlook for busi
ness. ' 1 he movenn nt of prices in securities
gave warning of compromises und adjust
ments and took away the mainstay of the
bear movement.
The process of covering of short con-
true ts therefore proceeded en u largo scale
nnd largo financial Inter-sts offered ug.
grcsslvo support to the prices ot properties
in which they were Interested. A signifi
cant feature of the day's trading was the
llivustm.nt demand for small lots of Kill-
edged stocks. There were conspicuous
movements of this sort In St. Paul pre
ferred. Pullman , Great Northern preferred ,
Manitoba , Albany and SUitquehanua , St.
Paul & Omaha preferred nnd Pennsylvania ,
The advance in Pullman. Manitoba and
Great Northern preferred extended from
ffiA to 44 per cent and Manitoba closed with
a bid 7Vi per cent higher than last night.
This buying Is a natural concomitant of
the growing case In the money market.
Call loans were made at 2 per cent today
and there Is a constant Increase in the
supply of money offfrlng both for ilnui
loans and mereantlle paper. Short sterling
was slightly firmer In tone In response to
the advances In thei Bank of England rate.
A small engagement of gold for export was
without intlucnce on sentiment. The dny'a
net gains equal a point for many stocks.
The demand for high guide bonus was ? a
reflection of the growing abundance of sur
plus capital. Total sales , $2,0)5.009. IT. S. 3s ,

The Evening Post's London financial cable
gram says : The stock markets here were
stagnant today , being demoralized by the
rise In the discount rate of the Bank of
England from 3 to 4 per cent. This change
In the rate surprised the market generally ,
It is believed that polities Is the present
cause of the rise In the rate , but I have
reason to believe that a more potent fac
tor Is the endeavor to suppress a repetition
of the growth of German llnanco blllB in
this'market. If the bank rate hud not beer
changed the open rates would have given
way considerably. It Is also learned that
the bank Is taking1 steps to make the pres
ent rate effective by borrowing from the
market until November 4 at 4 per cent. Tlu
Americans were the only ones showing anj
firm tendency today. The New York buyIng -
Ing has given a general fill-up and prices
closed quite at the best , Northern Pacllli
being chiefly In fnvpr. The London dlS'
count market was unsettleel at a sharp ad'
vnncc. Continental discounts and exchange
on London moved up. Spanish exchange or
London Is lower at 38.25 against 39.20 lasi
week. Foreign bourses were comparatlvelj
llttlo affected by the rife in the. bank ratt
here. The Austro-Hungarlan rate is up te
4',4 per cent.

NEW YORK. Oct. 13. The trade in dry
goods today showed unchanged prlc s. In
terest centralized In the print cloths mar
ket , In which It was supposed activity
would be more noted than was actually the
case. Local buying Is still being done very
flowljIn both cottons and woolens. Trade
Is kept up fairly well In jobbing stores ,
but It Is of the hand-to-mouth variety anil
very llttlo of actual gain Is developed. A
feature which Is quite satisfactory is the
condition of collections. These are very
easy. The print cloth situation Is still unsettled -
settled In lt details. The market at Fall
River contlnufs steady. Staple cotton
goods showed no change of moment. The
demand for brown goods for elomestic con
sumption Is only of fair proportions. Ex
port goods are also In quiet demand. Prints
and woven colored fabrics were quiet.
Staples and fancies alike showed little
activity.

CATTLE It was another day of liberal
cattle receipts , but as has been the case all
the week some of the trains did not arrive
until late , so that the trading was pro
longed all through the forenoon. Huycrs ,
however , wanted the cnttlo and did not
wait for them to nil get In , but commenced
on the early arrivals in good season , and
the most of the cattle were soon sold. The
market , as a whole , was In vtry satisfac
tory condition as regards the selling Inter
ests.
ests.Tho supply of dressed beef steers , both
cornfcds and grassers , was far from lar e ,
and as the demand was good , the market
was reasonably active at llrm prices. Uuy-
crs are complaining that the cattle are costIng -
Ing them as much here as In Chicago , but
there are not enough fat cattle coming to
give them any opportunity to take off In
price even if so disposed.
Cows nnd heifers were In good fair sup
ply , and the market was active and fully
steady. Packers were all free buyers , and
the pens were soon cleared.
The most Interest was taken In stackers
and feeders , as thcycomposedthebulkof the
receipts. The yards yesterday and today
were full of country buyers and speculators
have been able to sell out to good advan
tage. With both speculators and country
buyers after the cattle holders of desirable
jots did not find It at all difficult to unload
and the bulk sold early. The prices paid
were strong , and the market was entirely
satisfactory to sellers. Representative
sales :
I1OQS Today's market opened up a little
BtronRcr than yesterday , and. thouch It
was not particularly active , owing to the
reluctance of buyers to pay any moro for
their uopts than yesterday. It held that way
until about the close. Cholco heavy IIOKS
sold as hlKli < > t J3.ro and KOOI ! light up to
$3,70 , with a prime sort of lleht how at
J3.70. The popular run o for good load
of mixed hogx was J3.57V2ff3.CO , with Homo
rough loads and pieces nt $1.55. Yesterday
the hogs sold very largely at $3.55 , over
half of all the hogs selling at that price.
It will be noted from the table nt lira ? ) of
column that the market averaged u llttlo
better than yesterday. The market Is htlll
a llttlo under what It was at thn opening
of. the WCCK. but U Is 6c hlcher than U
S1IEHP Thtre were plenty of sheep and
lambs of alt kinds In the pens this morning.
There WIIM also a good demand for all kinds
so that there were none too many. Hepre-
sentatives of local packers were all want-
ling muttons , and the market opened early
nnd the desirable lots * for the most part
charged hands In good season. It was a
good , active and steady market. Good
lambs sold at $5.2&Qii.33 , and wethers and
yearlings fold as high as $4.33.
There were a good many stackers and
feeders In the yards again today , but them
wro also plenty of buyer ? for that kind
and the market was reasonably active at
steady prices.

CHICAGO , Oct. 13. Trade In cattle today
was actlvo to the extent of rather meager
offerings , prices ruling strong and in many
Instances lOc higher. There are not nearly
enough choice cattle coming to meet the
requirements of the trade and there was a
regular scramble among the buyers for
such lots. Native beef stEnrs sold largely at
J5.OOjT5.65 , with prime bunches at J5.7065.80 ,
a few common fed westerns selling around
J4.00'tf4.60. The stacker and feeder trade was
good at a wide range of prices nnd cows
and heifers sold actively , the greater part
going for J2.75if3.S5. Fat distillery fed bulls
sold around J4.00fi4.25 , and calves were
steady , some stock calves going at J4.50fii
5.00. Grass Texas steera advanced to J3.60 ®
4.00 for good grades.
Prices for hogs averaged Go higher , but
the extreme llgures did not show this ad
vance , fat medium and good grades under
going the greatest activity. Hogs sold
largely at J3.G3fi3.80 for good ; common
droves were J.1.40Q3.63. and good to prime
at J3.75P3.90 ; pigs sold largely ( it J.1.20JJ3.50.
'many going below J3.00. The hogs averaged
fairly well in quality and thu supply was
soon taken , light weights selling at a largo
discount.
Trade In sheep nnd lambs was quite ani
mated , but prices wcro hardly as strong ns
on Wednesday. Lambs were wanted at
J4.25fi-l.50 for common up to JG.OOQ6.25 for
the best natlvo flocks. Cholco western range
lambs brought Jo.GOJTo.GO , and there was
once more a strong demand for feeding
lambs nt J4.SOSG.23. Sheep wore salable at
J.1.00g3.50 for common , up to J4.50SI.CO for

MINNEAPOLIS. Oct. IX The Journal' * (
stuff correspondent nt Walker , Minn. , wires
as follows : ( Matters arc rapidly moving to
a. climax and the question of peace or war
will probably bo settled within forty-olBhl
hours. Today the Indians arc holding a
pew wow In the woods hack of the Lcoct
Lake agency , at which It Is expected thoj
will decide whether or not to glvo up th
men wanted hy Marshal O'Connor. Upon
this hangs the Issue of the whole matter.
Tholr decision will bo comnjunlcn.te.il to
another conference with the government
ofllelals at the agency tomorrow. If they
refuse , unrelenting war will bo waged by
Oener.il Ilacon. who Is getting very tired
of pow wows , but who nevertheless Is leav
ing the present conduct of affairs entirely
to Commissioner Jones. To whip the rebels
Into subjection or to annihilate them will
bo no easy task , even to on Indian fighter
of General Uacon's resources. The hos-
tlles arc well armed ; they are dead shots
ami they know every Inch of a very dlmcult
country.
Experienced couriers declare that not
enough troops can bo landed In Walker to
capture the hostllcs. The dense Jungle of
the woods Is penetrated by trails known
only to the Indians , who would be able to
use them and escape. The only feasible
plans seems to bo to wait till the water
courses freeze over and then make a win
ter campaign with hunger and famine as
allies. General Uacon has made his plans
for the campaign that may bo necessary
very carefully , and while bo realizes the
obstacles In the way , ho Is confident they
are not Insurmountable.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 13. The following
dispatch about the Indian troubles , dated
Walker , Minn. , late last night was re-
celvcd nt the Interior department this
morning :
I have lust returned from tha hostile
camp , about twenty-Jive miles from here.
where I went this morning with Father ft
Aloyslus. About ninety Indians were nres- 7

SII.VKR on OWN OUE TO HE THEATKI )
Copper KlnK'n Orcnt Wraith Oliject
of the Enterprlwo.
CHEYENNB. Wyo. , Oct. 13. ( Special. )
Arrangements have been completed for the
erection of a 100-ton plant on the Copper
King property In the Silver Crown district.
The company has decided to use the Jackbon
process. They have had eomo twenty-mltl
runs made of the ore by ( his process , all of
which were satisfactory and demonstrated
that D5 per cent of the values In the ere
could bo saved at a cost not to exceed f,1
per ton for treatment.
The Copper King is an Immense body of
low grade ore averaging about $11 per ton In
gold , silver and copper. A large amount
of development woik has been done and the
extent'and value of the property have beou
demonstrated beyond any question.
It has always been appreciated that thers
are some line properties In the Silver Crown
district , and In view of the great success In
treating low grade ores In Colorado and
other western states , eastern men and Colorado
rado men have been Investigating Silver
Crown , making the above tests. Old timers
and conservative mining men have great
faith in Silver Crown. High grade ere has
been found there In several claims and the
erection of the plant will probably mean a
revival In prospecting In Iho district and
the opening up of Eomo good mines. Mr.
Adams , who Is In Seattle from Klondike , will
trrlvo In Cheyenne in a few days. He Is thu
principal owner In the property mentioned.
Colonel E. P. Snow bays that there is
more than mere talk In the plant proposi
tion nnd that ho was assured by Denver
capitalists not only that ( he plant is to be
erected but that It Is to bo erected at once.
Flrnt lliirlnl of l\c Civil AVnr.
SCOTLAND , S. D. , Oct. 13. ( Special. )
In speaking of military burials the other
day Major Dollard remarked to the writer
that he helped to bury the first man killed
in the civil war. He then said :
"Tho fellow belonged to company n nnd
was poisoned on his way to the south on the
oteamcr State of Maine , while lying In
New York harbor on the night of the 18th
of April , 1801. Ills name was Charles Del-
lows. He died at C o'clock on the morning
of the 10th , a few hours before the men of
the Sixth Massachusetts were killed In thn
streets of Baltimore. In the early dayn of
the war It was often rumored that the sol
diers were In danger of being poisoned
through food , water , whisky or something
of that kind , as nt ti later tlmo It was be
lieved that certain localities where our
troops were stationed were purposely In
fected with smallpox and yellow fever us a
means of war by the enemy. I don't know
how much there was In cither of these
views , but it was believed nt the time of
[ tcllows * death that ho got hold of some poi
soned liquor that was passed on board , by
which a large number of other men were
made sick but shortly after recovered. We
burled Hollows Just outside the parapet of
Fortress Monroe on the 20th of April1. 1861 ,
the same day , I believe , that Kobert E. Leo
resigned his commission 1n the Uni od States
irmy , before the news of the secession of
Virginia had gone abroad and while the con-
redcrnto Hag was Hying within reach of thn
iuns of that fortress. The regular burying
ground for the fort was about a mlle away ,
t > ut so strained were the relations between '
Mirsdvcs and our tiouthcrn brethren at that
llmo that It was not considered advisable
: o try to bury a Yankee soldier there then
Later wo removed the ho.1y from Its tem-
itirary resting place to the regular buryln ?
