Wall Struct Review.
New York. OU. S6. The temper ot
speculation tit the Stock Exchange was
unmistakably bullish today and at the
end of the session prices showed an
advance of a2 per cent. In practic
ally the entire list. Heavy purchases
to cover short contracts contributed
to the strencth of the market, but the
upward movement was accelerated by
buying1 for the long account for certain
capitalists who are Impressed with the
heavy exports of wheat and other pro
ducts and the Influx of gold and who
also believe In the success of the sound
money advocates at the coming elec
tions. At intervals reactions occurred
In consequence of the sale of 15 to 20,
two shares lor foreign account, the set
buck met with by the bull specula
tion In wheat and the advance In the
rates of Interest here to SalO per cent.,
but after each decline Btocka were
taken freely with the result of causing
substantial rallies. The transactions
aggregated 2.'9,2ii shares, the largest
total tor some time. The great fea
ture of the day's speculation was the
Jump in Sugar, which on purchases of
ti:'.4Ul) shares rose to 115 and closed at
114 against 112 on Saturday. Bur
lington and Qulncy ranked second with
23.H0O shares; St. Paul third with 24,200
ttnd Reading fourth with 23,300 shares.
The Important advances follow: Sugar
preferred, 1; Tobacco, 1; Burling
ton and Qulncy, 1: Chicago Gas, ITi;
Northwest, 1; St. Paul, ; Kock Is

General Klectrlc, 1; Lead, 1; pre
ferred, 14; Jersey Central, 1; Read

strong with prices at or near the best
of the day.

Chicago, 111., Oct. 28.-The net appre
ciation in the price of wheat today was
one cent, but th market was nervous and
in a position to be "worked." Business
was on a much reduced scale, not only In
wheat, but in the othtr grains und provi
sions. In a general way It was u bull
market without bull news. As Is usual
on Monday the trade had Important sta
tistics, but they did not leave their mark.
There was a disposition to follow leaders
or guess what the market might do next
regardless of natural inlluences, and this
developed a scalping trade. The De
cember option in wheat opened at 69?c.
and the highest prlt'e for the day was
ilUc. Tho lowest llgures were 6e. Short
ly before the closing hour news came of
the burning of the Pnelilo elevators here
and thU caused the mi-kef to firm, th
llnal price being 7oc. It cannot be said
that there was an excitement during the
duy's business for the reason, perhaps,
that there was nothing In the information
received to warrant It.

BEST OP THE CAMPAIGN.
Thursday night' demonstra
!: tlon in the Frothingham thea
ter will be a fitting climax to
the local campaign for Protec
tion and sound money. The
speakers will include Governor
Hastings, at all times a favorite
orator; General Latta, eloquent
and witty; General Beeder,
scholarly and effective; Colonel
Harry Hall, apt in anecdote
and illustration; and Mayor
Warwick, of Philadelphia, who
is one of the best speakers In
the state. This meeting will be
for Democrats as well as Re
publicans. Let every citizen
AS VICE PRESIDENT.
Many Men of Distinction Have Filled
the Otlico in the Years That Are
From the Omaha Bee.
The office of vice-president of the
United States is one of distinction and
honor. In the early years of the re
public it was considered worthy of the
aspirations of the most distinguished
statesman. The roll of vice-presidents
includes the names of such eminent
men as John Adams, Thomas Jeffer
son, George Clinton, John C. Calhoun,
John C. Breckinridge and Henry Wil
son, while there were others who had
a prominent part In the eveifts of their
time and achived an enduring place in
the country's history. It is only In late
years that the vice-presidency ha3
come to be thought of so little conse
quence, from the view point of poll
tics, as to be unworthy the considera
tion of men in public life who have
attained a prominence that warrants
them in aspiring higher.
It is true that the position carries
with it little patronage, the vice-president
having but few places In his gift
wun wnicn to reward political friends.
It Is also true that the incumbent of
the vlce-presldecy does out, as a rule,
exert a very great innuence upon poli
tical affairs. Unless he enjoys the most
Intimate relations with, the administra
tionand In recent years this has not
been the case his views are not sought
and he. gets little more opportunity
than he would have had as a private
c-itlzen to give shape and direction to
political events. He has practically no
voice in the government, and must
take his share of the responsibility for
his party's mistakes and failures with
out having anything to say regarding
the framing of policies or the adminis
tration of affairs. If he preside over
the senate with dignity, fairness and
impartiality he is commended, but has
little chance beyond this to win the
approbation of his fellow citizens. Add
to all this the fact that but few vice
presidents have been nominated for the
presidency, and that for the last third
of a century election to the second
place has been regurded as a bar to
the presidency, and an explanation Is
furnished why aspirants for the high
est ottlce in the gift of the people are
unwilling to accept the second place.
From the Rochester Post-Express.
In the Scranton Tribune there Is a con
soling reflection which will doubtless seem
very applicable here to those Rochester
lans who have found their westward way,
by bicycle, carriage, or cur, so blocked
that even "the star of emtiire" would have
to keep in the air. The Tribune Is speak
ing of torn up pavements and stiys, with
half a sob In Its voice, "Such things don't
happen in dead towns." No, they don't,
and the peacefulness of the last long sleep
is manifestly not without charms.
It has sometimes occurred to me that
the gentlemen who write criticisms for
i.ewspapers do not frequently enough, be
fore writing sharp worus, iauc to con
sioer their effect. Tnkc, for example, thi
Mvuge attack made by last Saiurday's
Truth upon Air. Younu's "Hamlet." Its
Immedlato result was to cause to this
earnest and gifted young player a loss
In his business probably amounting to
$lii0. But that was not all. It deeply
wounded the player himself. Ho Is a
young man, just starting out In life; a
gentleman by birth and breeding, who, at
a time when most stage-workers are
ready enough to descend to flippancy or
pruriency, has the ambition to gain rec
ognition by conscientious and painstaking
work in the higher levels of the drama.
He was a newcomer to our city; he rose
for that performance from a sick bed and
during it fainted in his dressing room.
Even If he had murdered the part, It
would have been at least an attempt In
the right direction, and while it would
huve merited kindly dissuasion, would not
have deserved satirical back-ripping
founded In the muin on false representa
But the fact is that Mr. Young's "Ham.
let" needs no apologies. It was loftily
conceived, poetic In treatment, clearly
drawn and not at all discreditable to a
young man of 23 years of age. Its imper
sonator showed that he possessed gifts
of an uncommon quality a graceful
presence, a resonant and flexible voice un
der excellent control, easy nnd effective
gesticulation and intelligence decidedly
ubove the ordinary. If tho Truth critic
could not see these recommendations, so
much the worse for his discernment; they
were seen and appreciated by the audi
ence. The circumstances fairly consid.
ered, it was a surprisingly good produc
tion of one of the most dilllcult of trage
dies; Instead of butchering Mr. Young
for his honorable desire to equip himself
for dlgniiled and uplifting work upon a
decadent stage, the press should at least.
It seems to me, give him a fair chance
and extend whenever It enn a welcoming
hand. Ill words go much faster than
words of encouragement; but If these few
remarks can antidote the Truth's un
called for virulence, Mr. Young Is wel
come to them.
The meeting of the inter-Stute Homoeo
pathic Medical society In Scranton this
week will not only be an event of Interest
to members of the fraternity In north
eastern Pennsylvania und southern New
York, but will also be of Importance as
another- advertisement of the enterprise
of the Electric City. The Inter-Stute con
vention, which will bring to Scranton
some of the most prominent physicians of
the homoeopathic school from New York
and Philadelphia, will in many respects
be a preliminary session of the state con.
vention which will be held In this city ut
a later date. The State Homoeopathic
Medical convention has heretofore oscil
lated between Pittsburg and Philadelphia
and has never been held In any other cltv
In our great commonwealth. The deci
sion of the body to hold the next annual
meeting In Scranton Is a recognition of
the Importance of Scranton as well as of
the talent and enterprise of the homoeo
pathic physicians of the city and vicinity.
By the way, have' you ever noticed the
Increase In tho flood of mediocre and
maudlin stuff that Is tolerated on the
stage today? There Is scarcely a combi
nation save the exponents of tragedy that
does not contain one or more alleged bal
lad singers who profane true sentiment
und shock the nerves of musically-inclined
people by renditions of ear-splitting
compositions set to wretched verse. Forty
line stanzas descriptive of the adventures
of a dry goods drummer or the woes of
the maiden who strayed from the paths
of virtue at an early age and never at-
temuted to get back again, are made ad
ditionally terrible by the piping voice of
the soubret'.e or the bray or the Dasso in a
hand-me-down dress suit. Horse music
and doggerel poetry are bad enough when
confined to humorous topics, but when
the etlorts of the "Inspired" nre turned
to subjects that should be avoided in or
dinary conversation they become posi
tively painful. It Is to be regretted that
the army of descriptive ballad writers
seems to be on the increase and that an
Indulgent public continues to allow them
to not only revel In indecency, but also
at times Introduce subjects that should
be too sacred to come within the range
of a modern song writer.
I notice that the craze for the queer In
literary fields has reached Scranton and
that the city can boast of a weird publi
cation of the order of the "Philistine" and
"Chap Book." The new magazine, known
as the "Pheon, presents the proper ap
pearanc printed in red and bluck, and is
delivered to the reuder folded In a 3x9 Inch
wad. ft caters to the highest clement
only In society and literature In Scran
ton. For the present the magnzlne will
doubtless hi ablo to cover the entire field
without being unfolded.
INCREASING OUTPUT OF GOLD.
The continuously Increasing production
of gold is knocking the props from under
the claim 01 tne suverues inui me pre
cious metal Is getting so scarce that
"there Isn't enough to go around," and
that the world's currency Is contracting.
Notwithstanding the fact that the total
output of gold has doubled during the lat
ten years, the estimates for the present
calendar, given to the public a few days
ago by our mint director, .ur. r-resion,
or.eof thehlirhest authorities in the world.
fixes the total so high that It will be near
ly double that of 1S-90. Here nre some of
the totals since 1S75 and the estimate for
