Nothing Excltloa In Wheat, but Price

Batch or Moderately Bullish

Chicago The wheat market was quiet to
day during most of the session and fluctuations
were again confined within narrow limits. The

closing figures of Saturday.
No special influences were brought to Debt,
though after the eariv decline the market ruled
quite firm most of the time. This was due to
the visible snpply showing a smaller Increase

port that Dodge, of the Agricultural Depart
ment, bad written to the 4mertean Agricul
turist claiming only 38.000.000 acreage, and on
this basis calculated that the crop would be
486.000,000 bushels, or 470,000,000 bushels of 60
pounds each. There was also more talk of con
centrated purchases of December wheat, which

neapolis and Dulnth received 1.624 cars. The
visible supply increased L205.000 bushels,
whereas nearly twice that quantity had been

York. The decreases were at St. Louis and

Easiness Sen More Interested in Politics
Than Thej Get Credit for.
CUMBERLAND EIYEB IMPK0TEMKNT
Things are quite lively at Little Wash
ington. A Fourth avenue real estate broker
who came from there yesterday said: "I
was astonished to see the changes that has
taken place since I was there oelore, about
a year ago. Thenjtbe population was about
6,000; now. it is 12,000 or 13,000. Over 500
houses have been built there this year
some of them equal to any of the same class
in Pittsburg. One dwelling cost 550,000.
The demand for real estate is simply im
mense. Lots on the main street bring 5600 a
foot. Suburban lots close to town,are selling
at 51.500, with oil reserved.
Ihe oil craze instead of abating Is on the In
crease. It is about the only thing talked about.
A conversation started on some other topic is
soon swung round to oil. Everybody dabbles
in it, even the newsboys. The town has put
aside Its old conservatism, and is progressive
and wideawake. In some respects it resembles
the bustling, places in the Bradford region 20
or 30 years ago. Ihere is very little lawless
Business men take more interest in elections
than they get credit for. One of them said
yesterday: "Business men feel a deep concern
in the politics of the country. No class profit
more from good laws or suffer more from bad
ones. Hence while they are partisans in a
limited sense, they do a great deal of scratching
when It comes to voting. They want good,
competent men in office from the lowest to the
highest position men who will perform their
duties without fear or favor. Sneaking for
myself, I have very little time to spend in log
rolling and caucusing, but I do conr lderable
work notwithstanding, I think the same Is true
of a large majority of business men. They
work quietly, and by their protests against
unworthy candidates frequently turn the scale
in favor of honorable and competent men.
"The charge that we are too closely wedded
to business to devote any attention to politics
does us an injustice. We constitute the bulk
of the "still vote' of the country which politi
cians cannot reach in their calculations, and
which often deteats the carefully laid schemes
of party managers. I think the public can
safely trust business men to do their duty in
upholding good government."
According to the decision of the Supreme
Court of Indiana, in the case of Olatt versus
Fortman et ak, under the Indiana statutes it is
no defense to an action on a promissory note
that the makers, not knowing who the holders
of the note were, on the day it became due paid
into the bank where said note was payable the
amount due, and directed the bank to apply it
to the payment of be note, and that the bank
subsequently became insolvent.
In another recent decision by the same court,
where one takes a claim against his debtor ont
of the State on his person for the purpose of
depriving the debtor of the benefit of the ex
emption laws he sends the claim out of the
State, within the meaning of section 2,162 of
the Revised Statutes of Indiana, making such
act a public offense.
The project for improving the Cumberland
river received a big boost at a recent meeting
at Nashville. One of the speakers said:
"There are various ways in which aid and
comfort can be given to the work before ns,
but it is only by united, persistent and untiring
effort that the end will be eventually attained.
We must go to Congress armed with statistics,
and it is for you to collect them, showing what
commerce comes to the city by the river, and
what may be made to come. Let them show in
the first place that the banks are lined with the
finest limestone from one end to the other. In
the second place that its immense poplar
forests. If they have been partially used, yet
have behind them broad forests of oak as vet
untouched and of infinitely more value to
Nashville, the first hardwood market of the
world, than the poplar wbichfis going.
"Let the report show that at its head lies
more ore and coal than in the whole Connells
ville region by three times. Its vast pineries

A Boston authority remarks: "Business has
been rather nneven during the past season in
the New England market for boots and shoes
and leather, but on the wholeboth manufactur
ers and the trade have good reason to be satis
fied. Everything points to a liberal movement
of font-wear during the next few months.
Stocks throughout the country are believed to
be light, neither retailers nor jobbers having
carried over nnuBual quantities of goods. Man
ufacturers, consequently, are already getting
fair orders, though it is to, be said that the bus
iness is in some respects irregular. On the
whole no fault can be found with the amount
of contracts already secured for future de
Baltimore grain dealers are said to be agi
tatinethe necessity of adopting some uniform
standard by which wheat can be graded at the
elevators in all the seaboard cities. It is
claimed that while Baltimore inspections are
honest, other cities "have an ingoing and out
going system." When admitted into the ele
vators, it is charged, the wheat is made of an
inferior grade than that given it when offered
for shipment. The Western seller is the loser,
while the European miller gains the benefit
The advantage to the city resorting to such a
practice is that it becomes the purchasingpoint
for European dealers.

THE CRISIS 0TE.
A Banker Gires Assurance of Easy Money
Throughout the Year.
The exchanges were large yesterday as a re
sult of business coming over from Saturday.
They were $2,777,964 21. The balances were
481,727 37. One or two banks reported money
working a little tighter than usual, but suffi
cient for all requirements without a change in
rates which continue to role around 67 per
cent. There are no fears of a stringency.
A cashier remarked: "It is too late In the
season to talk about tight money in this
market While the surplus has been reduced
considerable In the last two or three months.
It is still large enough for all demands that will
be made upon it this year. Not only this, but
other financial centers that have been hard up
for some time will soon be relieved, as there is
no further need of disbursements to move tbe
crops, and money sent West and South for that
purpose will soon begin to flow North. 1 think
the crisis is over for this season, though specu
lative cities like New York and Chicago may
feel tbe pressure for several weeks yet.
It was a close race between Pittsburg and
Baltimore las: week, but the former came out
ahead. Baltimore picked up wonderfully
Friday and Saturday by a rushing business in
flour and grain, if she had commenced a day
sooner she would bave landed first.

Less Active, tint Cotton Oil
still Bns Friends.
Kbit York, November C In the stock
market to-day there was a moderately active
business in railroad shares, while tbe trusts In
comparison with their late extreme activity
were dull, with the single exception of Cotton
Oil. There was little news to affect values, but
the bears started several rumors 'which until
TUESDAY, . NOVEMBER .
contradicted had considerable effect upon the
course of prices. Better buying for the long
account made its appearance, however, and
late in the day when there was covering of
shorts to some extent the market which had
been irregular, developed a uniformly stronc
tone, though the dealings were reduced to
Cotton Oil was bought to sore extent by poo
pie who intend to hold, thinking that lis assets
justify the prospects of better prices In the
future, but long stock continnes to come out,
and little progress was made in tbe upward di
rection beyond recovering the drop of tbe open
ing. The Coal stocks were the weak spot in
the market, and the pressure upon Beading
was such that it became unusually active and
declined over 2 per cent, only a small fraction
of which was recovered. Jersey Central als
showed marked weakness, and on a very limited
business lost more than Reading. Tbe others
were held comparatively steady for the time
being. Theselllngin those stocks is attributed to
the bear combination, which has been so active
in the market for the past few weeks, but
there was undoubtedly considerable long stock
parted with on the decline.
Tbe Grangers were inclined to strength, and
Burlington advanced sharply in the lastfew
minutes. Missouri Pacific bore its share ol the
pressure in tbe early dealings, but tbe resist
ance was too great to make any impression, and
later the stock became one of the leading
strong stocks, as well as one of tbe most active
on the list, and before tbe close had scored a
handsome advance over Its Saturday's closing
figures. New England was also attacked in the
early morning, but after yielding nearly 1 per
cent it became "dull and made a full recovery.
The money market ruled easier, especially in
tbe afternoon, .when rates on call went down
to 2 per cent, which materially helped the up
ward movement late in the day.
Tbe opening of the market was heavy at de
clines extending to per cent, and in tbe first
half hour there were declines established in
Missouri Pacific, New Etfgland, Reading and
others of from K to 1 per cent. The pressure
was then lifted lrum the list, but in the Coal
stocks the decline continued until well into the
afternoon, and when the rest of the list was
strong they were barely steady at tbe lowest
prices. There was considerable f everishness in
the market, but the general drift of prices was
upward throughout the afternoon, and the close
was quiet, but firm, at fractional advances In
most of the list.
Outside of Reading and Jersey Central, which
are down 1 and 2 per cent respectively, the de
clines were tew in number and for insignificant
fractions only, while Burlington and Qumcy. is
up 1, Missouri Pacific and Chicago Gas 1 per
cent each, and Sugar L
Railroad bonds were dull, and the market was
marked by weakness in the Beading and Kan
sas and Texas issues, though, outside of those
the list was quiet and about steady throughout
tbe day. The sales were only 5885.00a

A CONSPIRACY TO POISON.
(sensational Charges of a Wife .AgnlnatHer
v Husband and Tbelr Cook.
New Yoeb:, November 4. There will be
tried before Judge Daly November 15 a
divorce case promising all the elements of a
sensational domestic drama. The wife's
story charges a conspiracy to bave her
put into.an insaue asylum, and efforts to
poison her and the filling of her place in
the household . by another woman,
and the husband makes countercharges. The
complainant in this suit, which will be
based npon charges of cruelty, is Mrs. An
nie E. Morton, whose husband, L. A. Mor
ton, lives at No. 343 Macdougal street,
Brooklyn. The wile is now at the home of
her brother, Theodore Johnson.
Mrs. Morton told a reporter of her
troubles. "After my mother's death," said
she, "my husband began to abuse me until
I was forced, for the sake of peace, to allow
him all my share of my mother's estate.
"Soon be brought Lome a young woman
whom he introduced lis Miss Dorcas Han
son, and gave the place of cook. She would
not obey any of my orders, and I believe
she tried to poison me."

An Allegheny county gardener reports that the
loss of potatoes in his section from rot is not so
great as it was feared a month or two ago. At
the first digging, owing to long continued wet
