The Popular Clothiers, We and Liberty Streets, Chicago, Oct. 10. Wheat made a breaking -Jump today. December option, which closed Saturday, at 75J, opened this morning, at 78i79j, . steadying at the latter ligure, an ad vance of 3i. The wildest excitement characterized the trading. There was talk of possible failures. After the momentary reaction to 79, December wheat so went beyond the figures, touching "9i several times, within the first fifteen minutes' business. Just before 10 a. m. the market took a sud den plunge downward to 78, reaching later to 781. About 10:50 the price was 781 for December. Almost bofore tile tickers could place the figures on the tape in the broker's olllcc the quotation had leaped to 791 only an eighth of a cent short of four cents advance within u single hour. Before 11 o'clock the pit witnessed the notable example of a whlpyaw. From "Of the market fell as rapidly as it had risen to 781. A few scattering sales were made at 785. Then once more the market rebounded, the ruling price at 11 a. in. being 79 cents for.Dccember. The advance today was due to Liv erpool cables, which reported the market as excited from 3J to 5 pence higher, equivalent to an advance of 4 to 0 cents. No such Jump has been experienced in that market for years. The news was not all bullish by any means in the northwest, receipts were" heavy and unofficial worlds shipments liberal. The cables, however were the predominant influence and trading was enormous, with fluctuations vio lent and frequent. A big surprise was occasioned by the Indian shipment of 72,000 bushels. This seemed to indicate that the serl- ousness'of the Indian, situation had not been exaggerated. There was a lot of selling done on it and the price of December sagged to 77i cents dur ing the last hour of business. In New York. New York, Oct. 19. Wheat made a perpendicular advance of 4 cents per bushel, following the stupendous jump of 0 cents at -Liverpool and a general speculative excitement throughout the whole of Europe. The bull movement was accompanied by an intense local excitement and heavy trading for tuo nrst iew minutes. Buying orders of course predominated. Even the bulls were amazed at the enormous advance, not equalled in years. December option was closed Satur day 8H, opened today 851 before the demand was appeased it had Jumped to 80 cents. Then following this came a one cent reaction, which caused a let-up In trading. Corn and oats both scored sharp rises. Up to 1 o'clock twelve million bushels of wheat liad been traded In. California Wheat. San Francisco, Oct. lO.-The ex citement on the call board of the local produce exchange was Intense today. Over ten thousand tons of wheat changed hands at the morning session, a big day's business for these times. December wheat which closed Satur day afternoon at 1.47 opened today at 1.55.

His Personal Attack in the Oregonian Partly Answered, Salem, Oct. 16. (To the Editor.) In view of the fact that Colonel (?) Ilofer has launched his frail bark upon the tempestuous and treacherous sea of politics, by accepting the Popo cratlc nomination for presidential elector, and will soon appear in the canvass as an exponent of the beau ties of political mongrelism, it would seem but fair to subject him to some thing of the criticism and catechism which he lias been fond of applying toothers, who like himself are asking for the votes of their fellow-citizens. 1 desire to ask tills disinterested patriot a question: Did you, or did you not, Just before your recent trip to St. Louis, Mo., in the presence of Mr. u. v. liisnop and Mr. n. 11. Lnoncy, use the following language: "If I can go back there nnd disuse of my services, at $20 or $25 a day, for six weeks, would not that be a good thing for Salem?" W. A. Cusicic. We certify that the above language used by Mr. (?) Ilofer Is as above stated by the author of this article. C P. Bishop, N. II. Looney. The' above and nearly a column mure appears in the Dally Oregonian of Saturday. So far as It refers to the undersigned, he had an offer to go back to the eastern states at $10 a day and expenses paid and make speeches for the cause lie still represents. If liecnuld have obtained his price ho would have gone and hi friends would have rejoiced with him, whether the ubovo is true or false. As to lits critics, has ho not always been on the make regardless of party, creed or conscience? Hus he not taken more money out of the taxpayers of Oregon than any man In Salem for the service rendered, and was ho ever known to perform a generous or disin terested act I u public or private life? When it was found that he was un lawfully holding a $1,200 slnocure as visiting physician once-a-wcek at the asylum, and Illegally drew that money for several years, and had his pull cut off by Secretary of State IClncald, did he ever offer to return the money? There are those who declare that Dr. Cusick lobbied that law through the legislature In the name of suffering humanity and the helpless iusane,and then Jumped onto the Job which ho had created for himself. Aro the patients any worse off since these visits of one hour a week by this emi nent specialist at $100 a month were cut off? There nre those who have seen this man sit in a maudlin state as a dele jjatyiilnA Republican convention for the jjqlp.urpose of putting on the ticket an unknown man for county treasurer, so .that Cuslck's bank could and did handle tlio county funds to the tune of $20,000 to $30,000 while the taxpayers paid interest on the warrants. That usurious fraudu lent process has, I hope, been nipped In the bud forever In our county poll tics and It should be entirely cut off in our state affairs, too. Tills statuesque fraud lias been known to visit a state Institution and feci the pulse of ten or twenty chil dren, and charge $2.50 and mileage for each one. lie has been and is still doing just this sort of things in the name of loyalty to Republicanism, love of the people, and sound money, and these practices were denounced In tho Oregonian two years ago when it was calling for a new deal. What did this same alleged Repub lican do last spring when The Jour nal was supporting the entire Repub lican ticket In Marlon county? He conspired with others to defeat Bark ley, Chapman and Craig In tho inter est of the gold standard.whlcli lias al ways been opposed by the Republican party until 1890. Surely this man Cu sick Is not the angelic being to suc cessfully asperse any inan'd motives In public or private affairs. Tu behold this walking Jarof second-grade "splr Itus frumentl" assume a solemn air of honesty and deliver a lecture on tho decline of public morals Is a sight fo make a castlron hitching post wcopat the impositions practiced In the name of stalwart Republicanism. Dragging in the names of honorable men like Messrs. Bishop and Looney will not help galvanize a certificate of 'character and disinterestedness onto 1 the rotten carcass of a notorious pub- lie parasite who has gained his wealth by valiant "crooking the pregnant hinges of tho knee that thrift might ' follow fawning," and thanks aro duo ' the gentlemen for this opportunity to ! lay bare u little of his public record.

From Southern Oregon. Tho ' most recent arrival from that land of ' sweet fruits, is another lot of casabas the finest of the season, and probably ! the last, at John G. Wright's Pioneer 1 grocery. Tho hundreds who dally take their meals at Strong's restaurant know a good thing, and of course patronize It. Lank County. Oct. 18. A month ago Lane county was rollnblv for Me Kinlcy. Eugcno was three to one for the gold standard candidate. Towns like Junction wore all one wuy. Today Eugene is about an oven thing. The four precincts will not give Mo Ktnloy forty majority, while an act ual majority of the voters among the State University students aro for Bryan. Tho professors who have any politics nearly all suck tho golden teat of Mark Hanna's cow. Lano county on tho West will give Bryan a majority and on tho cast side toward the mountains tho voters aro four to one for silver. As goes Lano so goes Oregon. It Is an old rich county, of prairie nnd timber, mines, mountains and ocean, with an university city, a farming population, an intelligent people, frco thinklngand independent men. While Dr. Driver; and tho cattisli politicians follow tho stream for garbage, men liko Dr. Oglesby, Klncaid, Baker, nillcgas, Robt. Clow, Lark Bilyou and hosts of others In touch with tho pcoplo stand up nobly for tho causo of the masses. A TILLMAN CONVERT. E. R. Sklpworth, who ran for sen ator against Charley Baker and Dr. Drivos, lias been a gold standard Democrat upto tho date of Tillman's speaking on Friday, when ho an nounced his conversion to free coin age, lie is a brothcr-ln-law of Judge Piper, tho gold standard Democrat, who camo out in. tho Oregonian so strong for McKlnley early In tho campaign, until A. Bush, of Salem, is reported to havo told him If that talk wasn't stopped he, (Bush) would have. to come out for Bryan. Slnco then Pipes lias dropped McKlnley liko ahot spud. ALL LINCOLN MEN. Kon. B. J.Pengra and tho two otlier men, who were Lincoln electors In 1800 are still alive and arc all three for Bryan. Dr. Oglesby, of Junction Is a cousin of Dick Oglesby, of Illinois, another Lincoln enthusiast in his day. In fact, Brynn, who wasa law student with Lincoln's law partner, In Illinois, was himself a Lincoln boy, as his father, Judgo Bryan was a Lincoln admirer in his day. Judgo Lyman Trumbull, of Illinois, becarao a Democrat, and afterwards a Peo ple's party man and died in thut faith. MEETINGS AT JUNCTION, Lano county, Saturday, were a great success. About 600 greeted Elder Barkley, who stood with a blazing sun In ills face for two hours and ox pounded old-fashioned doctrines of American self-protection and opposi tion to monarchical Ideas. The beau tiful full weather that Is painting tho forests In brilliant colors Is favorable to tho people's cause. The women and children turn out us they never did to Democratic meetings and cheer and hurrah Jut t as tho men do for tho common causo of tho people. Tho local paper had announced Bryan meetings at Junction Saturday jtC8. ley, Woodburn, "and a man by nanio of Ilofer." Tho McKinleyltcs had circulated handbills announcing a barbecuo with all kinds of roast meats and free bread. Tho Bryan commltteo of Junction had never authorized a barbecue, as they had no funds -to pay for It with and tho McKlnley barbecuo at Eugene Is sllll unpaid for, and tho Mcivinloy women of Junction are asked to raise $40 to help pay for it. Tho bogus Bryan barbecuo that was billed by tho Republicans was turned against Us originators in 11 telling manner by Dr. Oglesby In a short Hjiecch when ho opened the afternoon meeting, and It actually made votes for tho silver men. Dr. Oglesby, who has a largo practice and Is In demand till over tho county, was ono of tho original Democratic electors. When asked to withdraw. in tho Interest of u union Bryan electoral tlcket,hc tele phoned tho conference commltteo at Portland In tho words of a patriotic hero: "I'd rather stand picket guard live miles out for Bryan and freeze to death on duty as a prlvato than havo any honor and see McKlnley elected 1" FIVE ATTRACTIONS at Junction Saturday gavo the town all tho appcaranco of a circus holiday. Hotels, stores and saloonB did a rush ing business. A steam mcrry-go-round had 2000 patrons and gavo away n 'gold watch to the most populur young lady at Junction, voted to bo Miss Sadie Driscoll, a talented elocu tionist. Tho next attraction was the Black Eagle, of French Prairie, who de lighted tho crowd raoro than tho merry-go-round. Ho talked two hours, rodo to Monroe and back, (where ho also made many converts) and took tho 3:30 a. in. train to Woodburn t preach. Few men couldcnduro tliat sort of thing for six weeks as Barkley ' has. Ho had rnudo his 40th Bryan speech Saturday night. Third attraction was J.A.Slbbctt's brass- bands, that played at all tho meetings and gavo a grand ball in tho evening at tho opera houso where u speaker held forth for Bryan,' who has no reputation whatever as an orator but had tho biggest crowd that could get In far larger than T. T. Geer had and Gecr said at Junction ho had tho largest crowd ho had talked to any where In tho state. The next attraction was tho won derful DoMo8s family who Bang , 'Sweet Oregon" at tho meeting arid had to sing It over and gave a concert at the church and had a good houso in splto of all that was going on. And tho town was full of people, nnd tho ( Buster of Long Tom was there and ho could whip his weight in wild cats, but alas ho did not hear tho Bryau speech nb night. Ho was laid out alongside of tho gutter and John Bar leycorn had 'lm. CAPITAL AND LAUOK had sovorul conllicts nnd as usual cap Ital got tho worst of It. Two McKln loyitcs hud trouble with Bryanitjcs, and the Bryanltlcs hud been too poor to buy whiskey, und put hpads on the McKinleyltcs who had too much money and consequently too much whiskey, But it wob a great success., The Bryan boys will carry tho two Junction precincts for sure. Among those at tho rally were Dr.Oglesby, Secy. Win. Hall, Treasurer McFjir-. land, W. L. Houston, Rob't. Clow, W. S. Lee, It. P. Caldwell, J. M, Howard, J. W. Kirk.I). It. Hill, R. V.
