Another Jump of Three and
LIVERPOOL MARKET EXCITED,
Fluctuations Violent and Frequent
The Popular Clothiers,
We and Liberty Streets,
Chicago, Oct. 10. Wheat made a
breaking -Jump today. December
option, which closed Saturday, at 75J,
opened this morning, at 78i79j, .
steadying at the latter ligure, an ad
vance of 3i. The wildest excitement
characterized the trading. There was
talk of possible failures. After the
momentary reaction to 79, December
wheat so went beyond the figures,
touching "9i several times, within the
first fifteen minutes' business. Just
before 10 a. m. the market took a sud
den plunge downward to 78, reaching
later to 781.
About 10:50 the price was 781 for
December. Almost bofore tile tickers
could place the figures on the tape in
the broker's olllcc the quotation had
leaped to 791 only an eighth of a cent
short of four cents advance within u
single hour. Before 11 o'clock the pit
witnessed the notable example of a
whlpyaw. From "Of the market fell as
rapidly as it had risen to 781. A few
scattering sales were made at 785.
Then once more the market rebounded,
the ruling price at 11 a. in. being 79
The advance today was due to Liv
erpool cables, which reported the
market as excited from 3J to 5 pence
higher, equivalent to an advance of
4 to 0 cents. No such Jump has been
experienced in that market for years.
The news was not all bullish by any
means in the northwest, receipts were"
heavy and unofficial worlds shipments
liberal. The cables, however were the
predominant influence and trading
was enormous, with fluctuations vio
lent and frequent.
A big surprise was occasioned by the
Indian shipment of 72,000 bushels.
This seemed to indicate that the serl-
ousness'of the Indian, situation had
not been exaggerated. There was a
lot of selling done on it and the price
of December sagged to 77i cents dur
ing the last hour of business.
In New York.
New York, Oct. 19. Wheat made
a perpendicular advance of 4 cents
per bushel, following the stupendous
jump of 0 cents at -Liverpool and a
general speculative excitement
throughout the whole of Europe.
The bull movement was accompanied
by an intense local excitement and
heavy trading for tuo nrst iew
minutes. Buying orders of course
predominated. Even the bulls were
amazed at the enormous advance, not
equalled in years.
December option was closed Satur
day 8H, opened today 851 before the
demand was appeased it had Jumped
to 80 cents. Then following this
came a one cent reaction, which
caused a let-up In trading. Corn and
oats both scored sharp rises. Up to
1 o'clock twelve million bushels of
wheat liad been traded In.
San Francisco, Oct. lO.-The ex
citement on the call board of the local
produce exchange was Intense today.
Over ten thousand tons of wheat
changed hands at the morning session,
a big day's business for these times.
December wheat which closed Satur
day afternoon at 1.47 opened today at
1.55. It went up and down selling as
low as 1.52 per cental and closing
i at $1.54. May wheat, cioseu oaiuraujr
81.48, opened today at $1,551. it sold
as high as 31.58 during the morning,
closing at noon at $1,571. Spot wheat,
which sold (cash) on Saturday, at
$1.35S1.40, sold today, at 1.452$1.50.

A REPLY TO DR. CUSICK.
His Personal Attack in the Oregonian
Salem, Oct. 16. (To the Editor.)
In view of the fact that Colonel (?)
Ilofer has launched his frail bark
upon the tempestuous and treacherous
sea of politics, by accepting the Popo
cratlc nomination for presidential
elector, and will soon appear in the
canvass as an exponent of the beau
ties of political mongrelism, it would
seem but fair to subject him to some
thing of the criticism and catechism
which he lias been fond of applying
toothers, who like himself are asking
for the votes of their fellow-citizens.
1 desire to ask tills disinterested
patriot a question: Did you, or did
you not, Just before your recent trip
to St. Louis, Mo., in the presence of
Mr. u. v. liisnop and Mr. n. 11.
Lnoncy, use the following language:
"If I can go back there nnd disuse of
my services, at $20 or $25 a day, for six
weeks, would not that be a good thing
W. A. Cusicic.
We certify that the above language
used by Mr. (?) Ilofer Is as above
stated by the author of this article.
C P. Bishop,
N. II. Looney.
The' above and nearly a column
mure appears in the Dally Oregonian
of Saturday. So far as It refers to
the undersigned, he had an offer to go
back to the eastern states at $10 a day
and expenses paid and make speeches
for the cause lie still represents. If
liecnuld have obtained his price ho
would have gone and hi friends would
have rejoiced with him, whether the
ubovo is true or false.
As to lits critics, has ho not always
been on the make regardless of party,
creed or conscience? Hus he not taken
more money out of the taxpayers of
Oregon than any man In Salem for
the service rendered, and was ho ever
known to perform a generous or disin
terested act I u public or private life?
When it was found that he was un
lawfully holding a $1,200 slnocure as
visiting physician once-a-wcek at the
asylum, and Illegally drew that money
for several years, and had his pull cut
off by Secretary of State IClncald, did
he ever offer to return the money?
There are those who declare that Dr.
Cusick lobbied that law through the
legislature In the name of suffering
humanity and the helpless iusane,and
then Jumped onto the Job which ho
had created for himself. Aro the
patients any worse off since these
visits of one hour a week by this emi
nent specialist at $100 a month were
There nre those who have seen this
man sit in a maudlin state as a dele
jjatyiilnA Republican convention for
the jjqlp.urpose of putting on the
ticket an unknown man for county
treasurer, so .that Cuslck's bank
could and did handle tlio county
funds to the tune of $20,000 to $30,000
while the taxpayers paid interest on
the warrants. That usurious fraudu
lent process has, I hope, been nipped
In the bud forever In our county poll
tics and It should be entirely cut off
in our state affairs, too.
Tills statuesque fraud lias been
known to visit a state Institution and
feci the pulse of ten or twenty chil
dren, and charge $2.50 and mileage for
each one. lie has been and is still
doing just this sort of things in the
name of loyalty to Republicanism,
love of the people, and sound money,
and these practices were denounced In
tho Oregonian two years ago when it
was calling for a new deal.
What did this same alleged Repub
lican do last spring when The Jour
nal was supporting the entire Repub
lican ticket In Marlon county? He
conspired with others to defeat Bark
ley, Chapman and Craig In tho inter
est of the gold standard.whlcli lias al
ways been opposed by the Republican
party until 1890. Surely this man Cu
sick Is not the angelic being to suc
cessfully asperse any inan'd motives In
public or private affairs. Tu behold
this walking Jarof second-grade "splr
Itus frumentl" assume a solemn air of
honesty and deliver a lecture on tho
decline of public morals Is a sight fo
make a castlron hitching post wcopat
the impositions practiced In the name
of stalwart Republicanism.
Dragging in the names of honorable
men like Messrs. Bishop and Looney
will not help galvanize a certificate of
'character and disinterestedness onto
1 the rotten carcass of a notorious pub-
lie parasite who has gained his wealth
by valiant "crooking the pregnant
hinges of tho knee that thrift might
' follow fawning," and thanks aro duo
' the gentlemen for this opportunity to
! lay bare u little of his public record.

ALL LINCOLN MEN.
Kon. B. J.Pengra and tho two otlier
men, who were Lincoln electors In
1800 are still alive and arc all three for
Bryan. Dr. Oglesby, of Junction Is a
cousin of Dick Oglesby, of Illinois,
another Lincoln enthusiast in his
day. In fact, Brynn, who wasa law
student with Lincoln's law partner,
In Illinois, was himself a Lincoln boy,
as his father, Judgo Bryan was a
Lincoln admirer in his day. Judgo
Lyman Trumbull, of Illinois, becarao
a Democrat, and afterwards a Peo
ple's party man and died in thut faith.
MEETINGS AT JUNCTION,
Lano county, Saturday, were a great
success. About 600 greeted Elder
Barkley, who stood with a blazing
sun In ills face for two hours and ox
pounded old-fashioned doctrines of
American self-protection and opposi
tion to monarchical Ideas. The beau
tiful full weather that Is painting tho
forests In brilliant colors Is favorable
to tho people's cause. The women
and children turn out us they never
did to Democratic meetings and cheer
and hurrah Jut t as tho men do for tho
common causo of tho people.
Tho local paper had announced
Bryan meetings at Junction Saturday jtC8.
ley, Woodburn, "and a man by nanio
of Ilofer." Tho McKinleyltcs had
circulated handbills announcing a
barbecuo with all kinds of roast
meats and free bread. Tho Bryan
commltteo of Junction had never
authorized a barbecue, as they had no
funds -to pay for It with and tho
McKlnley barbecuo at Eugene Is sllll
unpaid for, and tho Mcivinloy women
of Junction are asked to raise $40 to
help pay for it.
Tho bogus Bryan barbecuo that was
billed by tho Republicans was turned
against Us originators in 11 telling
manner by Dr. Oglesby In a short
Hjiecch when ho opened the afternoon
meeting, and It actually made votes
for tho silver men. Dr. Oglesby, who
has a largo practice and Is In demand
till over tho county, was ono of tho
original Democratic electors. When
asked to withdraw. in tho Interest of
u union Bryan electoral tlcket,hc tele
phoned tho conference commltteo at
Portland In tho words of a patriotic
"I'd rather stand picket guard live
miles out for Bryan and freeze to
death on duty as a prlvato than havo
any honor and see McKlnley elected 1"
at Junction Saturday gavo the town
all tho appcaranco of a circus holiday.
Hotels, stores and saloonB did a rush
ing business. A steam mcrry-go-round
had 2000 patrons and gavo away
n 'gold watch to the most populur
young lady at Junction, voted to bo
Miss Sadie Driscoll, a talented elocu
tionist. Tho next attraction was the Black
Eagle, of French Prairie, who de
lighted tho crowd raoro than tho
merry-go-round. Ho talked two hours,
rodo to Monroe and back, (where ho
also made many converts) and took
tho 3:30 a. in. train to Woodburn t
preach. Few men couldcnduro tliat
sort of thing for six weeks as Barkley '
has. Ho had rnudo his 40th Bryan
speech Saturday night.
Third attraction was J.A.Slbbctt's
brass- bands, that played at all tho
meetings and gavo a grand ball in tho
evening at tho opera houso where u
speaker held forth for Bryan,' who has
no reputation whatever as an orator
but had tho biggest crowd that could
get In far larger than T. T. Geer had
and Gecr said at Junction ho had tho
largest crowd ho had talked to any
where In tho state.
The next attraction was tho won
derful DoMo8s family who Bang
, 'Sweet Oregon" at tho meeting arid
had to sing It over and gave a concert
at the church and had a good houso in
splto of all that was going on. And
tho town was full of people, nnd tho

could whip his weight in wild cats,
