Increasing in Number, Popularity and Wealth, and Gradually TAKIXG THE TLACK OF THE SALOON Where Men Can no Longer Congregate and Discnss Freely AKT. SCIENCE, RELIGION AND POLITICS HE was a long time getting about it, but she is getting there with the celeritv and energy characteristic of every created in telligence that fully perfects itself before launching itself. Pitts burg has decided to put on metropolitan dress and go it. not while the is young, but in the ripeness of years and discretion. Heretofore we hare had some clubs that were able to elbow on terms of equality, at least in some respects, the oldest in the land, for instance the Dnquesne, notwithstanding Dr. Hay's estimate of it, but they were not many, and but a small percentage of our population belonged to them. Kow, how ever, they are springing up on every hand and some of them are, or will be in a short time, equipped with almost Oriental prodi gality and with infinitely more comfort. CLUB LIFE. There is a general trend socially, musi cally and politically at present toward club life. TheKandall Club and the County Democracy are both preparing for an exist ence combining elegance and taste with politics, and they will rival in equipment,it is said, their wealthier neighbors, the Americus and the Young 3Ien's Republican Tariff clubs, on the other side of the politi cal house. The Americus club has several sites in view, and all that is left to be determined is the scale of grandeur on which it will build. One party thinks an expenditure of $40,000 or $50,000 will be ample, while another favors a"n outlay of $75,000 or $100,000, and when a compromise or a surrender is effected active operations will begin. The sites in view are all in the lower part of the citv. The Toung Men's Republican Tariff Club will, on April 1, take possession ot tne building belonging to the late Dr. Gallaher, on Sixth avenue, and it will be made a vision of beauty with consolation for those whoe natures require something more sub stantial than the aesthetic. The Prohsinn musical organization, which is so well known in the musical and social world that it needs no introduction, has se cured new quarters at JSo.305 Penn avenue. 5VIIV CLUBS INCREASE. This development of love for club life is pregnant with suggestions. As remarked, by Mr. C. P. Jahn, it is doubtless primarily owing to the large increase of wealth in late year enabling men to enjoy them selves better than formerly, and in the end more cheaply. A dinner can be furnished to a member of a club for half a dollar that would cost him otherwise a dollar, and if he wish to indulge his appetite to a greater degree than implied by that outlay he can do it at a relatively decreased cost. But there are a number of reasons that may be assigned. In the first place the Brooks high license law has diminished the number of beer balls, and as the drinkers have not diminished in proportion, the comforts of the saloon have been decreased so that in many places where art, science, music, politics, etc, might once have been discussed freely, there is now scant oppor tunity on account of crowding so that dis cussers must either hold their tongues or "hire a hall." CLUBS SUPEESEDIKG SALOONS. Then there is possible danger that prohi bition will win and the saloon must go, and only the club can take its place. All nations seem to have lound and still find it necessary to have loafing places when satiated with home delights, and while women may find the high tea, or the sewing circle, or missionary meeting suffi cient, men generally want some other kind of diversion. According to St. Paul, the Greeks met in public places to hear everv new thing and to talk about it. The Koman of leisure spent a considerable por tion of his time in the bath. Modern French and Germans sing, talk art, or music, or politics, make " love or chatter amiably or otherwise over a glass of wine or beer! The Englishman has for centuries enjoyed himself and taken "his ease in his inn," "Where village statesmen talked with looks profound. And tews much older than their ale went ro-inu. "IIE "WAESIEST TVELCOaTE. Shenstone complained that Who'er has traveled life's dull round, Where'er his sices may have been, May sigh to think he ftill has found The warmest welcome at an inn. But while the miscellaneous gathering of people in the drinking saloon may conduce to mental as well as social pleasure in En gland, Prance and Germany, the saloon of that type is an exotic in the country. There is yet too much heterogeneity add democracy in the gathering to allow it to be a disseminator of culture, and so far it is claimed to be more of a nursery for a certain kind of politicians than a moral, mental or real culture lift, and those who wish to choose their company are becoming more and more iu favor of the club, though their reasons for liking it may be diver gent Before A. D. 1900 those of us who live will have an opportunity to form an esti - mate ot the merits or demerits of club life. Jn the rural districts the church still largely 'supplies the place of club and theater, but it would seem that cities want extended social limits. THE SEW N0EHAL. It Is Getting There in Great Shape It Get Local Patronage. The new State formal School at Slippery Bock, of which Mr. James E. Morrow, of Allegheny, has been elected Principal, bids fair to be very successful. The district for which it is intended comprises Allegheny, Beaver and Butler counties, and the build ings, which contain an elegant library, are said to be about the finest in the State. As it is only about CO miles from Pitts burg, many persons from this city alone hare registered for the first school term, which begins on the 26th of the month. ?Sr A Silent Appeal for Help.

EDWAED GBOETjmfGEB.8, 627 and G29 Pinn'ayenue. NATIONAL GUARD KOTES. Inspector of Rifle Practice Biiown and Paymaster Miller, of the Fourteenth, did not accompany the regiment on the trip last week. The election to have been held in Company H last Friday night lias been postponed for ten days. This Is the second postponement of this election. Subgeon W. H. Exoxish, of the Eight eenth, well known for his vocal ability, now speaks In a very low whisper, the result of the baa weather in Washington. Several belated guardsmen who were left in Washington by not showing up in time to come home with their regiments, tamed up serenely in the city jestcrday, somewhat the worse of the wear and tear due to the lack of luxuries on freight trains. Captain Shannon, of the Washington In fantry, is thoroughly delighted "with the show ing and actions of his men while away. Had the weather been better, their uniform would have appeared to much better advantage, but aS it was compliments were showored upon them. The war cloud which hangs over the Samoan affair has stirred up tho fighting blood of hot only tho militia boys, but also many of the old vets. After the Washington trip the only pro viso the boys ask, is .that, in case of war, the fighting be confined to dry days, or umbrellas be adopted in place of bayonbts. W. P. CflRONlOER, of Company H, Eigh teenth, was on of the members of the Guard who thought the Washington trip the finest he had ever taken. Tho reason was found in the fact that ho had just received an appoint .ment in the Pension office, and would remain behind to fill his new position when the boys left. There were ten commissions issued from division headquarters during the month of February, those in this city being First Lieu tenant Lewis T. Brown, of Battery B. and As sistant Surgeon Oscar 8. Brumbaugh, of the Eichteenth. William P. Jones, of Jlinersville, Pa., was also given a commission as Brevet Second Lieutenant for college services. The Fourteenth Begiment has lost one of its best oflBcers In Captain E. S. Hill, of Comnany K, who died at his home in Mansfield Friday afternoon. Captain Hill enlisted as a private in K Company in 1878, and has filled everyin termediate position to the captaincy. The held, staff and line officers will attend the funeral in full uniform this afternoon, the train leaving Union depot at 12:35, the services to take place at 2 o'clock. The difference of feeling of local merchants toward the militia can best be illustrated by the amount of trouble enlisted men experience ingcttinc leave of absence for militia duty, sumo employes going so far as to refuse em ployment to guardsmen. Too much credit cannot be Riven to Mr. George Westinghouse in this particular, as in a certain company 21 of its members are at work in one department of a Vestingbouse concern, and their absence for the Washington trip was immediately granted for the asking. A prominent New Jersey officer of the Na tional Guard was discharged by court martial last week for appearing on the nfle range In a private's uniform and having his qualifying score credited to one of the enlisted men. Al most a similar case occurred at the match at Mount Gretna last fall, when a member of one regiment shot for some time in the name of one of the members of the team from the Four teenth Regiment of this city. The change was not discovered until the "ringer" had shot for some time, but the matter was quieted up. The Pennsylania Railroad, in taking the Ninth Regiment to Washington, tried to bull doze Colonel Keck into making him unload his men at Bennings station, six miles out of the ciy, as the cars were wanted at once in the East. Colonel Keck' refused to unload, and said he would stay on the cars until they took him to Jersey City, if necessary. The result was ho was unloaded in Washington. On the return, however, tho railroad company said he would either have to walk out to Bennings station or stay in Washington. He walked to Bennings station. , THE bill now pending in the State Legis lature for a naval battalion, provides that the commandant shall be a Lieutenant Com mander, who shall rank as a Major of Infantry, his staff to consist of an adjutant, ordnance officer, paymaster and surgeon, each with the rank of a first lieutenant. There shall be at tached to the staff, one master at arms, two yeomen, one hospital steward and a chief bugler. Each company is to have one lieu tenant commanding, two second lieutenants, two ensigns, two boatswain's mates, two cun ner's mates, two cockswains, two quarter masters and il seamen. Veterans who stood on Pennsylvania ave nue, Tuesday afternoon, and who are familiar with military organizations of the past and present, could pot help but notice the marked change that has come over the various State regiments. The decided decreaso in gaudiness of uniform, but the greater earnestness of pur pose, and more thoroughly correct military de velopment, than even of four years ago, was re markable. True, some of the Western com panies were still dressed like pirates in 10-cent drama, with red pants and yellow, blouses, but lour years hence will probably see the National Guard of all the States patterned after the regular army In equipments. Captain John G. Rootiee, of the Third United States Cavalry, renowned as an Indian fighter and engaging writer on Indian customs, in speaking of the inaugural parade, says: "The Seventh New York still maintains its- old-time prestige for tactical accurracy, but for a fighting organization, trimmed down to the buff and ready to move out at a moment's notice upon tho skirmish line, there was noth ing in the procession comparable to the Pennsylvania National Guard. Its three superb brigades, aggrecating an effective strength of fully 7,000 men, and havlngattachcd to each brigade a troop of cavalry and a battery of light artillery, looked like veterans, moved like veterans and would turn into veterans in less than no time, because their officers are old soldiers to whom the service of war is some thing more than a holiday pastime." Pretty good praise for the Pennsylvania boys, coming from such a source. The officers of the Eighteenth Regiment have returned from the rather damp trip last week with the gratifying knowledge that of the 25,000 men in line their organization came out second in appearance and first in numbers and military discipline. .The Seventh New York was, of course, accorded first place, as without doubt it is the finest military body in the coun try, but the Eighteenth has the croud distinc tion of second place on tho list. The result of their good showing is that Adjutant General Hastings voluntarily has offered to intercede with Governor Beaver for the enlistment of a tenth company to supply the vacancy caused by the disbandment of Company K one year ago. Two features in the Eighteenth particu larly attracted attention, the pioneer corp and the large and well-equipped staff. Tho former was the only body of tho Jucd in the parade, out it is extremely probable many other regi ments will copy the idea. Company K, Fourteenth Reclraect Speaks. At a meeting of Company K, Fourteenth Begiment. held in their armory on Friday evening, March 8, 1889, tiro following reso lutions were adopted: Whebeas, It has pleased the Almighty God, to call from bis earthly duty, our be loved Captain and Friend, E.

You being of the populace that doesn't have an office ou Fourth avenue, of course your idea is that all the smartness on the street is pent up in the heads of the gentle men who have their names Cut inlaid in marble and brought out more prominently by means of gold leaf; the gentlemen who are in broker firms, and who do the owl act as to winking and blinking when you Call to get pointers on stocks. Well, you are right just a little bit, which is to acknowledge that the brokers are pretty well built for quick headwork, but at the same time tne entire volume ot wit and wisdom of the avenue doesn't lie heaoed tip within their anatomies. Airs have much to do with making a man, and this is as true of Fourth avenue as anywhere. Ap pearances pull a fellow through in five minutes where brains without appearances would leave him in the lurch for five hours; for. you ob serve, it would take him that expenditure of time to let tho world into the fact that he has brains. When the tailor makes the man, and the man has cheek and keeps his tongue rest ing quietly inside of it,you can safely count that that chap will get your confidence and make his point while you are snubbing some man that nature has displayed handiwork in mak ing, but with whom the tailor has. bad tho least to do. See? You may nave a pretty fair average sort of dome of thought on your own shoulders, and you may say to yourself every time you think ot it: "Ap pearance is nothing: intellect's everything" and then, you know, the first tailor-made dude that comes into your countingroom meets your encouraging smile, or if you are not much on smillnc, finds outward evidence that there is within your head the pi epossession which pretty things make on all of us. I don't say this Is to your discredit, but Imust say from my superior perch as the office boy that it is this Instinctive or acquired quality of heaa that has much to do with keeping up the supply of citizens who don't hit the right side of the market every time. And I must add to this the re- proach that it Is a mild decree of this quality that causes you to ignore the Office Boy when you call down in Fourth avenue, while you cock your nose in the air and make your digni fied and important way to the throne of the chief of our firm. Not that the chief isn't all right. He is up in the business and there is no disconntinc him; but all the same there is An other there or thereabouts who is unsuspected of deep thought as to stocks and the specula tive markets, and who is always passed lightly by, except when there is message work to be done, who knows a thing or two, and who has ears to hear, and, what's more, lets them hear. Having the regard of a growing boy for bread and butter. 1 don't propose to be sarcastic as to the firm or its customers and get magnificent toward the latter, because you and they don't study and understand Fourth avenne botany as illustrated in the buds of finance who perch on highest office stools, when chance is ripe for such, and who do the responsible leg-work in tho intervals of those chances. That would be to put on airs and, for my part, I am not putting on more than one air at a time, which is about as much as boy or man can handle without stumbling. All the same I "know what's what," and when a young fellow has got on that tar, and knows how to apply the knowledge, he can take in and stow away a deal of Interesting in formation, and perhaps get np some little speculative deals of his own that may oc casionally turn out to the glory of his pocket, s The other day I thought I was onto a big thing; big enough to see me through next summer, when I expect to have an inaugural all to myself in the line of a starter on hot-season trips, such as the chief and the other partners of the firm and their high and mlghtinesses,the clerks, take every year. I had heard of de clines in ti actions, owing partly to increased expenses, and In part to unfavorable impres sions caused byslieht accidents occasionally resulting in delaying tho cars. Though all concede these lines will do a growing business as the city grows, these temporary interruptions and little disappointments produced some de clines in quotations during the week. Now here is how I expected to hit the market. I have beard of a man who was reported to have said that be had ridden twice a day on the traction and had never been on a delayed car. What was my conclusion from this? Why, that this man was a Mascotte. How could I apply this theory so as to bulge my pocketT Why. by ne gotiating with the traction companies and with the man. Whereupon I called on the head men of the two companies, expecting to play one against the other, a inothod that is not al together unknown on our street. Says I: "What will you give to insure one of your cars pop sure against accident or delay of any sort?" That was the form I put to each head man. Both thought it would be a good thing to have such assurance, but they both seemed struck with the same idea, namely, that the only as surance that they called tangible and pal pable was the description I bad on exhibit in making the proposition. That was cheap wit, however, and I didn't care so long as I monopolized the salable quality of the article. Says I, "A mascotte is what I propose, and don't you bother yourself as to the elegance of the theory. I'll look out for the practice and if it is 'no workee, no payee.' See?1 Then I explained further that I had a man in hiding that had never been on a delayed trip, though he had traveled over 1,000 miles on the rope roads. Neither Mr. Elkins nor Mr. Ver ner believed me. That was evident by their exclamations; but they were too polite to for mulate disbelief in the vulgar way. Still the possibility was worth grasping, so each in tnrn admitted, for if the unknown chap was a real mascotte he might be used to advantage by assigning him to duty on unlucky cars. I will not tell you what this transaction netted me: but putting to it what 1 may gain br keeping my ears open about electric licbt and gas, pho nograph, and the true inwardness of other sucn tmngs, I hope to be able ;to go down in style to the seaside next iJuly.

Bise and Fall of tho Greatest-Real Estate Boom of Modern Times. PIMSBUBGEESCAUGHT IK THE CEAZE Business the past week' afforded encour aging indications of improvement. The volume of transactions was larger than for tfie previous week, and prices were steadier for all staple commodities. The specula tive markets were moderately active, but in several lines prices were not maintained. This was especially true of petroleum, which closed weak and 1 cents lower than the opening Monday morning. In local stocks the features of the week were ad vances in Westinghouse Electrio and Switch and Signal, and depression In gas and faction shares. There was greater activity at the banks. Iron manufacturers reported moro inquiry and a decidedly better feeling. Real estate of all kinds was in active demand and values were fully maintained. In short trade in all branches was of satisfactory proportions for the season, with good prospects of a steady enhancement. 'Wo have passed the worst" was tho general sentiment of representative men. According to a well-authenticated report some radical changes will soon be made on Wood street, from Virgin alley to Liberty, which will not only improve the appearance but add materially to the value of business property on that thoroughfare. Details of the projected Improvements are wanting, but, ac cording to the statement of The Dispatch's informant, the Arrott, Penn Bank and National Bank of Commerce buildings are to be raised two or three storfes, the upper floors to bo fitted up for offices. WhenTemodeled, the Penn building will be occupied by the German National Bank, A number of other buildings are to - be worked over so as to put them in line with the other improvements. In fact, if the report be reliable and all tho plans carried out, as is probable. Wood street, within the Unfits indi cated, will before many months undergo such a complete transformation that old habitues will hardly recognize it. While these improve ments will be of especial benefit to Wood street, they will be of more or less value to the entire city, by setting a praiseworthy example of enterprise and local pride to say nothing of their bearing upon business and real estate. i At a recent meeting of the Chicago Real Estate Board a new stale of commissions was adopted, the salient features of which are herewith given. It is of equal interest to agents and landlords, and shows that the claim in some quarters that Pittsburg rates are higher than elsewhere is unfounded: for negotiating and making leases where rents, are not collected by agent stores and business property, lease not exceeding two years, charge on account of first year's reutal 5 per cent. Where term exceeds two years, add for each addi tional year l per cent. Bcsldence property, on total rent for term of lease, 2H per cent. When a building is occupied by stores and fiats It shall be considered in all cases as' residence property. Gronnd lease, term less than IS years, on total rent covered by lease, 2)4 per cent; where property is subject to reappraisal during life of lease the charge is to be computed for the full term on basis of tho first five years' rental. Gronnd leases ex ceeding IS years on the appraised value of prop erty at date of making leasa SK per cent; if more than one appraisal is mentioned in the lease then tbe percentage is- to be figured on an average of the appraised values specified. Where a tenant has a privilege for "renewal" expressed In lease it is to be understood that the owner of property shall pay a commission for said renewal at the same rate as though the leace when first written had covered the whole time. This Commission Is to be pala at the time of the renewal. Where agent collects the rent it is understood that when the collection of the rents ou property is not left with the agent for a full year he shall bo entitled to charge at the rates specified herein "for negotiating and making leases where rents are not colleoted bv agent." For negotiating and making lease, In addition to amount expended for advertising. (2. The owner Is to pay for all advertising connected with rent ing the property.

A Pittsburg gentleman, who has just re turned from San Biego, Cal., yesterday gave Tije Dispatch representative some details of the rise and collapse .of one of the most re markable real estate booms of modern times. About two years ago a new town called Cor onado was laid out on a scale of great magni tude on Coronado Beach in San Diego Bay, near tho city of San Dleco. Everything seemed propitious for the success .of the enterprise. The completion of the big flume by which an abundance of water for domestic and irrigating purposes was to bo brought to the em bryonic city was a strong factor in its favor. The Hotel del Coronado was erected on the ueach at a cost ot 31,500,000. The projectors undertook to do their own plumb ing, bnt soon gave it up and employed a Pitts burg man to finish the work. He charged 6,000 for the job. Everything was on an immense scale. The hotel company soon sold $3,000,000 worth of lots. The demand for them was so enormous and the struggle to get lu first so 'great that as hish as S1S0 was paid by many in dividuals for cood place3 in tho line of strug gling humanity. Lots that had before been considered almost worthless brought fabulous prices. Extensive public and private works were projected on all sides. The excitement lasted' for some time, but finally a reaction set In. 1 he boom had run its course. There was sot enough of money or en thusiasm to keep it up. Values dropped to zero. The hotel company was heavily in debt. Lots conld hardly be given away. A Pittsburg capitalist holds a mortgage for $10,000 on one of tho best blocks in Coronado. It would not tell for half the amount if put under the hammer. Hundreds of people were financially ruined, and hundreds of others so badly crippled that it will require years for them to make up their losses. Scores of people who went there with $5,000 or $10,000 had to borrow money to defray their expenses home. MOVING UP. Electric and Switch Still Climbing Trac tions nnd the Gnasora Flat. The features of the stock market yesterday were furthei advances In Electric and Switch and Signal, the former selling up to 40, and the latter to 21. Becent decision favorably affecting the former, and good business pros pects of both make them desirable invest ments, as is shown by the demand for them. Tractions and the passers were the weak spots. LaNorlawas unchanged. The demand for it seems to have been fully supplied. There was the usual clamor for bank stocks, bnt only one small lot changed hands. Bids and offers were: 3I0B2OKG. Bid. Asked. Allegheny Nat.

The petroleum market is not governed by the ordinary laws of trade. It does not move up or down according to any well defined plan that maybe calculated in advance, but operates after a fashion peculiarly its own advancing when, to ordinary comprehension, it should de cline, and declining when it should advance. This defiance and contradiction of established principles serves two purposes, both of which reflect seriously upon the market they puzzle professional traders and completely mystify outsiders. Nobody cares to engage in a busi ness that he don'tand can't understand. The market yesterday was of this character. It declined in the face of a decidedly bullish statistical report, showinga redaction of about 1,000,000 barrels during February. This indi cates a disposition or conspiracy in some quar ter to make oil trading not only extremely un certain but ridiculous. It is certainly alienat ing tbe outside element and throwing the mar ket entirely into tbe hands of professionals, whose sole business it is to scalp one another. The market opened at 91c, sold up to 91c, then receded to Wtc, rallied and sold up to 90c, and closed at OOJc. Tbe close on Mon day was 92c showing a drop of lKc during the week. "I am afraid the spring slump has come," said an operator yesterday evening. "I have felt for some time that it was in the air, but I didn't expect it so soon. I shouldn't be surprised If the market sold still lower before it rallies. I think tbe long interest is selling. If this be so, there will be no Improvement until it is ready for a new deal." A B.

SENSATIONAL BUM0BS Of a Panic In Paris Demoralize the Stock Mnrkct The Entire Active List Lower Some Marked Advances In Railroad Bonda. New Yore, March 9. The stock market was more active to-day than during the same hours on any previous day this year, and was decidedly weak in all -its departments, the re sult of the trading being material losses in quo tations all over the list There was a timid feeling at the opening this morning, and the selling by Chicago and the local operators was very marked, prices on the first sales being from ioi per cent lower than last evening's quotations all around, while Omaha common was exceptional with a drop of Vyi per cent There was evidently no effort to support prices and the decline was rapid when the news of a panic in Paris came in to help prices down and the selling became more general throughout. The Coalers, Grangers and Union Pacific were especially active and felt the full force of the Sressure, and among the specialties Tennessee 'oal received most attention and lost a large proportion of its late gains. The traders put out a great many stocks, en couraged by the bad advices from tbe other side, but at tbe low figures good buying came in, and by 11 o'clock tbe decline had met with a cljeckandthe market for the time being be came comparatively dull, while slight improve ment was shown in quotations. The Oregon stocks were conspicuously weak In the first drive, and Short Line dropped nearly two points, while the others were held up better. Toward noon the bank statement was issued and showed a loss of over $3,000,000 in the sur plus reserve, and a rumor that $3,000,000 had been shipped West brought on a renewal of the selling movement and prices again rapidly dropped, reaching still lower figures than had been seen during the first hour. The rumors also stated that a large amount of gold had been taken for Shipment to Europe, but inquiry de veloped the fact that none bad been so taken but there was an unusually heavy inquiry for cable transfers, presumably to aid the cor respondents on the other side in trouble. No Improvement was seen In the list and the market finally closed active and weak at the lowest prices ot the day. The entire active list is lower. Louisville and Nashville lost IK; Union Pacific, 1; St Paul, Beading and Oregon Navigation, IK each; Cleveland, Colum bus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis, Colorado Coal, Lackawanna, Manhattan and Tennessee Coal, each 1 per cent and the others fractional amounts. Railroad bonds failed to respond to the ac tivity and weakness existing in shares and were dull, the sales of all issues aggregating only $540,000, and while a weak tone prevailed for some time, prices were well held through nut and some marked advances were estab lished in a few issues. No special feature marked the trading. Among those which are higher this evening. Long Island firsts rose 2K.tol22K- Mexican National firsts lost 2, at 100. The sales of bonds for tbe week were $9,275,000, against $3,484,000 for last week.

Chicago A large business was transacted in wheat to-day and a weak and panicky feel ing was developed. May wheat opened lo lower, held steady for a while and recovered Ho of the decline, then became weak and de clined 3Jic, or to a point 3Je below yesterday's closing, improved some and closed easy and about 3c lower than yesterday. Junq also de clined Sc below yesterday's closing and closed 3c lower. July declined 2c below yesterday's closing and closed lc lower. At tho opening there was a feint made to hold the market under fair buying by a prom inent local trader, and the market even ad vanced some, but when it dropped back to the opening figure it was discovered that the early support was wanting, that the peg around 1 01K for May bad been removed, as it were, and with free speculative offerings the market broke badly all around, and a great deal of long wheat came out on the decline. The break was no doubt assisted considerably by the re ported financial panic in Paris. Favorable crop prospects here and improved conditions in California on account of rain also had a weakening effect BOSTON STOCKS. A General Decline, With Copper Stocks Leading; the Ran.
