The weather has been unfavorable fur the
dinting of tobacco and very little has been
set out by farmers. With geed weather
for a week or ten days the greater part of
the crop of 1810 would be in the ground.
Indication i, from reperts roceived from
several sections, are that the acreage will
be about the same as in 1880, with mere
Havana planted and less seed leaf.
Stray crops of the 1889 yield are still being

Wall street in its palmiest days could
net have presented a mere exciting picture
than Water street does te-day." And the
excitement and turmoil of the street are
all about the Sumatra. Our Importers who
were in the habit of keeping only banking
hours can new be met with in their etllces
at 7 o'clock in the morning and as late as
8 and 9 in the evening, toiling and sweat
ing nil day lung in their shirt sleeves and
disregarding the outside world as If it
were existing only in imagination. Te
such an extent are their mental and physi
cal powers absorbed in the sale of Su-mut-a.
Brokers and buyers are crowding
theli eniccs constantly, lighting almost for
the acquisition of any let of Sumatra the
importer may be disposed te let them
have, l'rlce and quality have become sec
ondary considerations. When but a short
time age an importer thought hlmself
lucky te be permitted te send a couple of
sample bales representing a let he is te-day
impertuned te reserve en tire lets even with
out any sample whatevei. Te our own
knowledge a let of a hundred and seventy
odd bates were ordered last week within 21
hours by thrcediirrnt parties and iu our
prosencoalntof three hundred and eighty
odd bales was sold which was oxpectod te
land only te-day. Quantities soem te have
become of no object. Where a man !ought
formerly Si bales he buys new 1W) and

making arriingoments for supplles te last
tliem from one te two years. The old stock
has been nearly cleared oil' the market en
tirely. If the proseut excitement should
continue, and the prospects hid that It will
rather grew than decrease, evcry bale
even or the new Importation will have
left the Importers' hands before the new
duty will go into effect. Fer thus far
the principal buyers have ceme from the
Wekl, whero they understand much better
the drill of political opinion than they de
in New Yerk. Transactions for the week
amounted te 1.S00 bales, prices going as
high as SJ.23 for old and 82.35 for new

Bremen en the 30th Inst, of 0,000 bales, and

Themas Cenlln, clerk at the Stevens

Te-day Charles Llppeld, collector of delin
quent school tax. called en Cenlln for l.0e
school tax. Cenlln refused te pay it. The
collector then read the warrant issued te
him in accordance te law by the president
of the school beard. This warrant directs
the collector te levy en the goods and
chattels or the delinquent, and if there be
no goods and chattels te take the body of
the delinquent and ledge him in the county
jail, there te remain until the tax Is paid or
he be discharged by due process of law.
After reading the warrant deniand was
was again madeaud again Cenlln refused
te pay. The collector, said he proposed te
carry out the directions issued and took
held of Cenlln. About the tlme that Mr.
Llppeld took held or him he was struck
by Cenlln. The blew obliged him te re
lease his held, and, net caring te have any
rough and tumble light, the collector left
and consulted the judiciary commlttce of
the beard. He was advised te make a
criminal complaint and he went be fore Al
derman Barr. There a charge was pre
ferred against Cenlln for " knowingly, wil

A MUDDY PICNIC.
Hew An Afternoon mid Evening Wan
Spent nt Tell's Huln.
At Tell's Huln yesterday aftornoen the
"Jelly Bachelors,'' a social organization
composed or young men who have head
quarters In Lecher's hall, Centre Square,
guve a picnic. Although the ralu poured
down hard all afternoon it Interfered very
little with the attendance, as peeple who
make up their minds te attend a Hairs
of this kind don't allow a little thing like
rain te keep them nway. There was qulte
a large crowd present und the cars et the
KastEnd line did a geed buslness. A great
many women and girls were en the
grounds. The bills stated that no Improper
characters would be allowed en the
grounds, but thcre was no discrimination.
Everybody that had "the price" was
admitted and many besides. The result
was that the peeple were pretty well mixed.
The rain uiade the ground very muddy
and the women, many or whom wero
summer suits, paraded around In the soft
earth together with the men. Thedanclng
lloer was covered with a thick coating of
mud, yet theso who slid around upon It
thought they were enjoying tliemsolves.
During the aftornoen a fight was started
and a number of young men, Including the
Witch boys, from the eastern part el the
town, peunced upon Charles Brockenrldgo.
The latter made it very warm for the whele
of thorn until he slipped in the mud, when
several fellows jumped him, striking and
kicking ktm in the face and about the
body. Men rolled about in the mud until
they looked like turtles, and the light was
finally brought te a clese by Censtuble
Billy Price, who had net goue te the
grounds te koep the peacohutte have seme
fun. He pulled a blackjack but made no
attempt whatever te arrest auv of the
flghters. although he knew all. The man
agers of the affair claim that theydidall In
tholrpeworlo prevent disorder, yetlhey
did net have an olllcer of any kind en the
grounds te keep order nor will they prosc presc
c ite any of the offending peeple. Hrockon Hreckon Hrocken
ridgo has sued the Wltchs at Alderman
Ualbach's for assault and battery.
As a mud picnic it was a gre.it succes",
and the managers are said te have made
seme money. As it as getten up for that
purpese they are perfectly satislled.

Stanley Itopllesto Lord Salisbury.
The Londen Timet en Monday morning
Srlntcd a long and caustic loiter from Mr,
tauley, In reply te the recent utterances
or Lord Salisbury. Mr. Stanley declares
that he has nothing but a sonllmeulal in
terest In any part or Africa, but he says
that, ou finding that many of his friends
have embarked their mono' in an African
outerprlso en the strength or a charter net
worth a counterfeit sixpence, unless the
tonus of the understanding with Germany
are rigidly adhered te, and being e very Indi
cation of a disposition en the part of the
government te help Germuus Ins toad of
Englishmen, he lias urged his friends te
discover the exact limits of their territory.
He wishes no quarrel with elther Germany
or England, but says boldly that if the
German colonial demands be granted it
would be mera economical te make Ger
many a gift of the whele British sphere.
Then British Investors might obtain se
many shillings for the pounds they se
credulously have been victimized out of.
In conclusion he declares that the Gor Ger
man sphere is the finest In Africa, and
adds: "Still their cry is 'Give, give!' H
veu think they nre better adapted than the
English te civilize the African, de nothing
half-hoartedly. Yield all, Including Egypt.
Never u word of pretost shall you iiear
from me. Excosslve amiability may be be bo
cemo nn infirmity, and the lutlrmlty of
negligonce, like ether dlsoases, grows till It
cuds In chronic senility."
