DANIEL NOT IN IT.
Ice limes tomorrow will publish
the following: In all tbe conferences
yesterday more or less talk was heard
of tbe attitude of the administration,
and tbe presence in town of Colonel D,
S. Lament, secretary of war, was taken
as an indication that a personal repre-
euinurt) oi toe administration was
interfering with the campaign. Colonel
Lsmont himself exploded these theories
to a reporter of tbe New .York Times,
Who saw blm last nisht.
"I have been in New York," he said,
"purely on business conneoted with
tbe war department and to keen en
gagemenU made a long time ago with
army omelets, Uatside of army offl

seen since my arrival in tbe city.'

WHEAT IS VERY LOW.
Producers Compelled to Sell at Prices
Below the Ordinary Cost of
New York. Oct. 5 R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review cf trade tomorrow
will say: Tbe lowest prices ever known
for wheat and cotton necessarily imply
somewhat restricted consumption of
other products. With the cbief money
crops of tbe south and west sinking In
value, it is not strange that purchases
ot manufactured produota are smaller
than was expected. Wheat has touched
the lowest point ever known for op
tions, and lowest ever known in any
form witb the present classification.
Prodncers are compelled to sell at
prices below the ordinary cost of raii-
ne crops, in some western states mere
is also a lamentable failure of the corn
crP- . .
YV beat suffers most from accumula
tion ot stock. Tbe condition of tbe
industries is in some respects more
satisfactory. Evidently tbere is a
arger demund for Iron products tban
there was a month ago, though tbe in
crease in output bas been somewhat
greater than tbe Increase to the de
mand, so that prices steadily tend
downward. Bessemer pig is selling at
$14 90. with steel bars at $1.05. while
contract to snpDress tbe principal
western competitor in nail manufac
ture is expected to bold- tbe -prio-al $1
for wire and 83 cents for cat nails,
Tbe structural market Is fairly active
at tbe west, without change at tbe
east, and while the coke output has
now become the heaviest ever known,
149,775 tons for tbe week, the price is
declining, and steps are being taken to
limit tbe supply.
