The city trade shewed some slight Improve

better. Receipts of produce were light, and

There was no business reported in the local
wheat market Saturday, and, until the trains
are running on better time and all wires are
up, not much Improvement can be looked for.

CHICAGO, Jan. 5. Wheat went up today, and
everybody wondered why. The shorts were wor
ried, and did most of the buying, but could not
lucidly explain the necessity for the sudden
change in sentiment. Some said Bradstreet's
was responsible for the bulge; others blamed
the light receipts, while many laid the cause
at the foreigners' door. It was very clear, how
ever, that ICew Tork was buying and sending
bull news. A good demand for cash wheat was
reported at the seaboard, but five loads was
the greatest amount that could be confirmed as
ltavlng been soM. French orders to buy, as
well as many from the United Kingdom, were
rumored to be on the New York market. Brad
street's, in their report, stated that a net in
crease of available supplies In the United States
and Canada of 08D.000 bushels had taken place
In December, 1S94, against an average Increase
of 4.000,000 to 5,000.000 bushels In that month
daring four years previous. The exports from
both coasts for the week aggregated 2.CS4.000
bushols, against 1,814,000 bushels for the pre
vious week. The stocks in the United Kingdom
were reported as about one-half the normal
amount. Receipts were light, Chicago having
but 41 cars, and the Northwest 184. Cables
from Liverpool were steady. Berlin was higher
and Paris lower. No change was quoted at
Antwerp. Withdrawals from store at Chicago
were 133.4 lit bushels, and 2.VJ.0H5 bushels of
wheat and Hour cleared at Atlantic seaboard.

NEW TORK. Jan. 5. Very little was done

fractionally until after 11 o'clock, when the

"What the Xcvr York Commission Saiv
in Its Travels.
It is thought, by the New York Herald,
that the committee appointed by Mayor
Gilroy to find the best plan for disposing
of this city's garbage will recommend the
adoption of the Dixon system, which is
now In use at Atlanta, Ga.
By this means the garbage is burned in
a series of furnaces. Grease and a fer
tilizereach of which is valuable and
marketable are the results. The garbage
can be treated in this way without of
fense to those persons who live near the
The members of the committee ex-Postmaster-General
Thomas L. James,
ex-Mayor Franklin Edson, President Wil
son, of the board of health; Street Com
missioner Andrews and Lieutenant-Commander
Delehanty, U. S. X., supervisor
of the port of New York, are back at
New York, after a 10 days' trip of in
vestigation, during which they traveled
more than 4000 miles.
In Boston they found the process oper
ated by the New England Construction
Company, whose furnaces are at "Wake
field. Here they found a strong, penetra
ting and lasting stench caused by the
burning of the sugar in the garbage.
Although the products of this system Tiave
a commercial value, the stench would
operate as a bar to Its adoption for this
Charles Thackery's system was in
spected in Montreal, Quebec. He destroys
the garbage completely, reducing it all
to ashes in peculiarly shaped furnaces, in
which the garbage is used as fuel for its
own burning. The slag left after the
burning is valuable as a foundation for
cement, and the heat generated by a
battery of 14 furnaces, Mr. Thackery
claims, will give a force of 500 horse
power, which can be used in producing
electricity for street lighting, etc.
A remarkable plan, known as the An
derson system, was found in operation in
Chicago. The garbage, loaded on flat
cars, is passed through a tunnel in which
it is exposed to flames of crude petro
leum, being stirred in the meantime with
a pneumatic poker, through which a blast
of air can be carried to any part of the
heap. This system is ingenious and prom
ises good results, but it is not yet beyond
the experimental stage.
In St. Louis the investigators found the
Merz system, operated by the St. Louis
Sanitary Company. Here the garbage is
treated with the object of using the prod
ucts. The garbage, after being thorough
ly dried In steam-jacketed dryers, is thor
oughly saturated with naphtha, which dis
solves the grease in it. The grease is
drained off, and after some treatment is
readily marketable. The residue is dried
and sold for fertilizer. The wet garbage
costs $132 per 100 tons. The only objec
tionable feature in this system was the
awful and overpowering stench.
The visitors removed their outermost
clothing and put on long, thick linen
coats. In spite of this precaution, their
clothes were so thoroughly impregnated
by the rank smell that it could be noticed
plainly the next day. One of the commit
tee was so overcome by the odor that he
was compelled to leave the garbage works
and hurry to a remote spot for a supply
of breathable air.
The committee found the Dixon system
in use at Atlanta, Ga. This consists of
two reverberatory furnaces, one above the
other, with grate bars between. Coal is
used for fuel, and the garbage is dumped
into the upper furnace. When dried it
falls through the grate bars into the lower
As an illustration of the system, the
carcass of a horse was placed in the fur
nace. It had disappeared, even to the
bones in one hour and ten minutes. The
gases given off in the burning are led
from the garbage chambers to another
furnace below the smokestack, where they
are burned. Not much odor was percep
tible, but there was enough to be objec
tionable. Consulting Engineer A. B. Frcnzel, who
accompanied the committee, spoke highly
of the Dixon system.
"The third fire," he said, "is not enough
to destroy the odor. The gases from the
furnace should be carried to 'scrubbers'
such as have been used by the manufac
turers of illuminating gas in this city
for the last three years. Our gashouse
are no longer nuisances, because these
'scrubbers wash away all obnoxious
odors. The Dixon system can be improved,
and if it is introduced in thjs city I have
no doubt it will be. The system yields
for every 100 tons of garbage 2S tons of
ferteillzer, worth $S a ton, and six tons of
grease, worth $75 a ton. The grease Is
very pure and white, and there is a steady
demand for it by manufacturers of soap
foreign manufacturers, of course."
"But how can the garbage be kept sep
arate from the ashes?"
"The Boston system," he replied, "would
doubtless give satisfaction here. In Bos
ton the owner of every house is required
to provide separate receptacles for garb
age and for ashes. If the collector finds
ashes and garbage mixed in a box or
barrel he passes on without touching It
and makes a report. Then the board of
health compels the owner of the mixed
garbage and ashes to express it to some
point far from the city where It can be
disposed of. It has never been found
necessary to put an owner through this
experience twice. One experience is
SOME GOOD SER1MS
DR. LOCKE INAUGURATES SPECIAL
'Will Many or Fcvr Sonls Be Saved V
"Was His Suojeet Dr,
Special evangelistic services were in
augurated last evening at the Taylor
street First Methodist church, by the pas
tor. Dr. Charles Edward Locke. To an
audience which entirely filled the large
auditorium. Dr. Locke preached an earn
est revival sermon, on the subject "Will
Many or Few Persons Be Saved?" The
text was Luke, xiii:23: "Lord, are there
few that be saved." He said:
"The elevation and refinement of the
human soul are at once the purpose and
climax of the creation of the world. The
philosophy of the years can be easily es
tablished upon the hypothesis that the
culminating purpose of history is the
emancipation and redemption of man.
"It is anomalous that all the religions
of the world possess peculiar manifesta
tions of selfishness. Mistaken zealots
have sought to read this element into the
Christian religion. Some denominations
have dared to declare that the entrance
to eternal life is by a narrow door; and
each has persistenly claimed to hold the
only keys to this heavenly portal. With
monstrous complacency these bigoted in
terpreters have turned the multitude of
all other believers Into eternal woe. The
question of the text is supposed to have
been asked by one of this class, who felt
sure that those of his own tribe only
would be saved, but all others would be
Irretrievably lost. The reply of the great
teacher was, "Strive to enter in at the
straight gate;' contend most diligently;
those who seek by 'slothful endeavor'
shall not be able to enter."
Dr. Locke, in the argument of his dis
course, discussed, first, the breadth of
the plan of salvation. By many choice
scriptures he showed that from the utter
ances of Jehovah "Look unto me and be
ye saved all the ends of the earth" down
to the triumphant declaration of Jesus.
"I, If I be lifted up from the earth, shall
draw all men unto'me," a universal re
demption was provided by the father
heart for all who would accept it. "Jesus
Christ is the blood-stained keystone," he
said, "in a mighty arch which spans the
chasm between earth and heaven, and on
which the ecstatic multitudes are march
ing to the rewards of the righteous!"
The second point of the sermon was that
the limitations of salvation are fixed not
by God, but by man's "willingness to ac
cept. Salvation is conditional, just as
happiness, intelligence, property, influ
ence, integrity, honor, harvests, and pros
perity depends upon men's energy, devo
tion, faith and ingenuity.
"No man," he said, will be lost who has
had no chance to be saved! No man will
be lost who has not had. a fair chance!
No one needs to be lost to satisfy some
supposed demand of a mistaken theology!
Our freedom has been purchased for Ub.
It is ours to accept and enjoy; if we re
ject and despise, we will be required to
give an account of our opportunities and
our stewartship; and will be rewarded or
punished, not by a divine fiat, but by our
In the third point of the sermon the
question was asked, "Saved! saved from
what?" and the practical answer was
given, "Saved from sin; saved from our
animal nature; saved from ignorance,
superstition and unbelief; saved from
hopelessness, saved from sorrow and from
death! Salvation through Jesus Christ
includes all the blessings which have
come to us in bur civilization! Sir James
Simpson, who first experimented with
chloroform, was once asked by a student
'What is the greatest discovery you ever
made?" anticipating that the reply would
refer to the gjfeat physician's laboratory
achievements, -and was surprised to hear,
"The greatest discovery I ever made is
that I am a great sinner and Jesus Christ
is a great Savior.' Yes!. yes! seek ye first
the kingdom of God, for 'what will it
profit a man if he gain the whole world
and lose his own soul!' "
Rr. Cole at Trinity.
At Trinity Episcopal church last even
ing, the rector, Rev. T. L. Cole, D. D..
preached to a large congregation on the
topic, "The Manifestation to the Wise
Men." He said:
"The story in the first gospel is one
of the few stories out of the many cur
rent in the early days about the infancy
and childhood of our Lord, which found
place in the sacred canon of Scripture.
Later legend had much to tell about the
three kings, as they are now represented
to be, and their bones are now exhibited
at the cathedral at Cologne, if tradition
is to always be believed.
"The lesson of the story, however, is
that, outside the Jew ten circle, the knowl
edge of the incarnation was given to
seekers of the truth among Gentiles.
There are other lessons which tonight
we may draw from this old story. Wc
may compare it with the story of the
shepherds, in St. Luke's gospel, and we
may catch the truth that God manifests
truth to man in different ways. There
are many who will limit the way in which
God shall speak to his children. They
say, except in this place and through
this institution, no message shall come to
man. There can be no such limit, how
ever. In many ways comes to man the
good news of the savior and king.
"The manifestation, moreover, came to
these men in the peculiarity pjheir own
lives. These wise men were astrologers,
that is, unscientific astronomers. They
studied the stars. This was a part of
their occupation, and in that occpuation
and through it came the message. The
shepherds, too, were at their humble
tasks of watching the sheep on the hill
side when the message came to them.
So it often is tcday, that the call
from God comes to men, not in the serv
ice of the sanctuary, or in the formal
things of religion, but in the midnight
watches or the crowded street, or along
some path of common duty.
"The important thing is that we should
keep the eyes and ears of our soul open
toward God. Had the wise men not been
searching after truth, they would not
have had the necessary knowledge to
interpret the stars, and had the shepherds
not cultivated the hope of Israel, they
would not have understood the angelic
message. So, unless we keep our natures
opr n toward all that is best we shall not
understand the voice that brings good
tidings into our lives. If there has come
to you no message of good tidings of a
saving power from sin of a king and
leader in righteousness, is it not because
your ear has been closed to the voice
and the eye closed to the heavenly
vision? These wise men and shepherd3
alike obeyed the message, and went and
found the king and Messiah in a weak
babe in humble circumstances, for the
revelation to them was not of an omni
potent God in heaven, but of Immanuel
God incarnate in man. We, too, must
seek the king. He is Incarnate in human
life. The church, the congregation, is
the sacrament of his presence. It is a
weak and Imperfect tabernacle, indeed,
but that is the good tidings that in that
weak tabernacle dwells a power
under which will develop a glorious
human life, a realized sonship with God.
May our faith be strong as that of the
image in the story. T the service of this
incarnate Christ let us bring the gold f
our material wealth, the keynote of our
sympathy, with its suffering and bodily
throes, and the frankincense of worship
not of the weak, frail body, but of the
eternal spirit which dwells within.
"Thus in the old story shall we find a
lesson for tomorrow, and the days in
which we may find a message of good
news to strengthen us amid the discour
agements of human experience."
Benefits of a Revival.
j last evening at the Taylor-street Method
ist church a series of revival meetings
which may continue for several weeks.
After the sermon last evening an after
meeting was held, which was well attends
ed and full of Interest. This evening the
subject of the short sermon "will be "Ben
efits of a Revival." The sermon will be
followed by Invitations to people to be
come Christians. The singing will be
