The following iuiierial proclamation

Wheat Traden Were Wild
New York, April 22. Transactions in
wheat this morning about equaled the
heaviest entire day's tradinii this year,
being 13,525,000 bushels, and the ad
vance of 2" cents in prices over Satur
day was the biggest single jump tbe
market has bad in months. Traders
were fairly cruxhed in their efforts to ex
ecute buying orders. The price fluctu
ated violently, and Boon after opening
began to slide down again, only increas
ing the excited feeling. It is generally
conceded the average was the result of
the bull enthusiasm, which bad at last
broken loose in real earnest, well backed
up by outside support. .
There was a lot of short stuff covered
and a good amount of switching done.
May opened 2't,' cents higher, at65?4'
cents, sold up to C59g cents and back to
U5 cents. Corn and oats made a qui?k
response to the rise in wheat, but bus-
tuined the sharp noon reaction.
WHKAT STILL ADVANCING .
Chioaoo, April 22. Wheat started up
wildly today, opening cents higher
and advanced 21 cents before ten o'clock.
Heavy realizing, knocked 1 cent off the
pri'.'e, but the market remained very
strong, l'ardridge was again thought to
be covering, and the bull feeling was
helped by strong cables and the expec
tation of a 2,000,000 bushel decrease in
the visible supply. May opened at 61
cents, sold from (10?8' cents to 62.f4 cents,
and reacted to 0H cents.
Corn was strong, following wheat in
its fluctuation!!, with shorts coverini,
freely. Oats were linn,
Portland, April 22. Wheat, prices
today reached the highest mark for tho
year. Exportors quoted Walla Walla at
48 cents per bushel, though it is known
that a larger figure was paid for several
large lots. Offerings were beayy, though
not no larcn at wan exrxrleil. Vxlley

Wasiiinoton, April 22. Dr. Salmon,
chief of the bureau of animal Induatry
of the agricultural department, speaking
of the report that a large horse slaughter

started in Portland, Oregon, said there
was no la compelling such mints to be
lubelled, aa in the cane of oleomaruarine
when rvold aa bulU-r. Buyers of beef can
distinguish this kind of meat, as a gov
ernment inspection of slaughtered cattle
is made and government stamp is
placed on each quarter of beef. Dr. Sal

deavored to aecure legislation similar to
the oleomargarine law, which will com

Washington, April 22. Cleveland and
the members of of his cabinet are greatly
exercised over tbe growing popularity of
tbe silver movement, and are preparing
for a strong and vigorous fight against
free, unlimited coinage of silver indepen
dent of any international agreement to
lie made by tbe administration.
With that end in view, officers of var
ious exectutive departments, appointed
under the present administration, are
being urged to omanixe systematically
for the purpose of conducting the con
test along lines laid down in the presi
Many of the higher officials whe enjoy
reputations at home as stump speakers,
will probably take to the field early in
the summer, and others are even now
engaged in writing letters to local papers
or personal friends, impressing upon
them the importance of sustaining the
administration in the position it has out
lined. Federal officers in several states
will be organized at a nucleus about
which all who uphold the administration
or rather who are opposed to free and
unlimited coinage of silver, will be ex
pected to rally. - There are nearly 200,
000 government officers," poetmasters,
internal revenue officers, custom officer,
district attorneys and innumerable con
tractors, scattered throughout the
country. They will be expected to do
aggressive fiithting in the field, and will
be amply furnished with documents and
necessary sinews of war from Washing
ton. Perfected state organizations with
this end in view are now being formed.
These organizations will be extended to
counties, and even into districts.
Since Morton's recent utterance on
tbe financial question, bis mail has been
largely increased by letters and circu
lars from ailverites calling attention to
his statements and in some cases accus
ing him of inaccuracies. On being in
terviewed as to whether Morton might
be regarded as representing his views
the president said : "I am in no way re
sponsible for Morton' utterances. I
have always found it quite eaay to do
my own talking direct to the public."

Tacom A , A pril 22. It is authoritatively
slated that the shortage in tbe accounts
of the late Paul Schulze will exceed $100,
000. and possibly may reach $250,000. In
explaining Scbulze's methods, Receiver
Oakes of the Northern Pacific said last
"As payments were made on land con
tracts during the last four or five years,
the money was not always turned over
to the clerks, but was evidently kept by
Mr. Scbulze, and tbe holders of contracts
were given receipts. The payments on
many of these contracts have all been
completed, but the books do not show it.
The holders became impatient for their
deeds. Their complaints, a few months
ago, were our first intimation of the
wrong-doing. Before we can know defi
nitely l ow great the shortage is, we will
have to have returns from every one of
the holders of our land contracts. Tbe
purchasers will not lose anything. The
entire loss must fall on the company."
Tacoma, April 22. Additional facts
learned show that Paul Scbulze's defal
cations as Northern Pacific land agent
reach a much larger sum than heretofore
stated. The St. Paul syndicate of Spo
kane is known to have paid him between
$400,000 and $"00,000 for Spokane prop
eity for which no account was made.
P. A. O'Farrell, of Spokane, is here
