There., ttaa a. jfood. trade in the -wholesale
inarkets yesterday, -with heavy shipments made
to Alaska, as -well as to points nearer at
iand. Receipts of produce -were steady, but
the demand Is good, and prices generally 6how
considerable firmness. The wheat market Is us
exception to this rule, and In sympathy there
with & further reduction In tho price of flour
is noted. Eggs and butter aro both very Arm,
and there are no strictly first-class candled
oggs offering f or less than lTJic Shipments
of butter to the Sound and San Francisco are
still quite iieavy. the latter market taking all
of the surplus store butter, while the Sound

XEW TOIUC STOCK MARKET.
iProfewsionals Manipulate Business
and Secure Some Advances.
NEW TOR.K July 17. The stock market
gave continuous evidence today of operations
by an Influential bull party. Their efforts to
advance prices met with considerable success,
and wcro assisted 'by a sharp advance In a
siurnber of individual stocks. In which an out
standing short interest was driven to cover.
Business continued in large professional hands.
The general list -was rather neglected, and its
prive movements -were rather unimportant, but
net gains were generally registered at the closo
of the day. The manipulative character of the
market was evident from the circulation of sev
eral extravagant f rumors from time to time.
But tho resulting, gains were pretty -well held,
and the pressure, of profit-taking at the ad
vance was not su(31clent to cause any very de
The tono of tlje market at the close was
rather easy and, dull at concessions from the
best. This was -due rather to a pause In the
bull manipulation than to any large selling.
Union Pacific -bus the most conspicuous stock
in the list, andi; resumed Its upward movement
early In the daa. Higher quotations from Lon
don helped the advance. The news of the fall
of Tien Tsln encouraged sentiment there. A
period of dullness and relapse followed the
higher opening, which was apparently due to
the check of fce upward tendency In Baltimore
& Ohltf. Som f doubts were cast on yesterday's,
confident preaictlons of early dividend action,
of this stock.. The market maintained an atti
tude of lndifV.renee for some time to the rapid
advance scoifed, uwt by Brooklyn Transit and
later by Surrx. the." first rallying 1JJ from the
early depression, and the latter rising nearly 4
The raove-aJints 'frere duo to the demand from
the shorts, who were disturbed by the ap
parent wiUlngness of inside latereits In Brook
lyn Transit to tee the stock go down, and by
reports of largo profits In sugar refining at the
present level of prices. There were similar
movements on a smaller scale in a number of
prominent specialties. Pacific Mall rose con
spicuously 4 points on the supposition that it
would be benefited by the transport of troops
and military supplies to China. The upward
movement In railroad stocks was renewed
after midday, under the stimulus of these
special movements. The grangers, Bouthwest
erns and Pacifies advanced verygenerally from
1314 points, and St. Louis & Ban Francisco
first preferred Jumped 2H en a few transac
tions. The movement did not extend far out
side these limits in the railroad list.
The check to the advance in sterling ex
change was due to the offerings of bills against
gold exports. Arrangements are reported to
have been already mado for sending $1,500,000
in gold bars by Thursday's steamer, and ex
change houses estimated that the total for the
week will ran up to between" $3,000,000 nd
'$4,000,000. Money for call and for short-time
loans continues easy and abundant, but lend
ers .are disposed to place loanB for the longer

movement of prices continues Irregular. Total

CHICAGO, July 17.-September wheat opened
c higher at 77775ic, because Liverpool
showed but a small decline In the face of the
drop here yesterday, and because receipts wcro
small. Then tho market lost Its strength
because corn was making such a swift break
for the bottom. September, following the
opening, worked up to 775ie, and the pro
ceedings were rapidly downward. Liquidation
was heavy during the slump and demand
scattered. The speculative mind, after half

was helped along by renewed baying from the

ly afterward closed with most of the advance

rally was helped to & degree by the partial
recovery of corn.
The corn market made a hollow empty show
of baring recovered somewhat from the bear
drubbing given it yesterday, but the exhibition
lasted for only & moment at the opening. Lonr
corn was shoveled into tho pit in Immense
Quantities, and Inside of an hour the market
brought up over 2c under yesterday's close on
reports of excellent crop prospects as a result
of recent heavy rains. Covering by shorts for
profit caused a reaction, and part of the loss
was regained, giving tho close an appearanc
of firmness, compared with indications earlier

Provisions early la the session were very

Hogs were easy at the yards, and the corn
break was a decidedly bearish factor. One

WEB DAVIS' INFLUENCE.
So Much Among Republicans More
Anions' Iridescent Socialists.
WASHINGTON, July 13. We are read
ing a great deal of late of the terrible
Influence that -will bo exerted by Hon.
"Webster Davis In making Democratic
votes throughout the "West, and how his
very presence will Inspire voters to sup
port tho Bryan ticket The Democratic
press freely informs us that It Is general
ly conceded that the defection of "Webster
Davis means mucb to Bryan and Steven
son, and they point otit and claim that It
was largely due to his personal efforts
that Indiana, Illinois and Minnesota were
held In the Republican column in 1S06. At
the same time, efforts are being made by
the Democrats to place Davis on a pedes
tal as the friend of the old soldier, and
the only man In tho Administration "who
looked to his interest. AJong with this
Is their denunciation Of Pension Commis
Coming down to facts, and leaving sur
mise aside, one will readily realizo that
"Webster Davis is no longer a man of
great influence. It is true he is an elo
quent speaker, and In his way is con
vincing, but a man must have reason and
aound Judgment behind eloquence to make
his oratorical flights of practical value to
the cause he advocates. It will be re
called that Davis secured an Indefinite
leave that he might visit South Africa,
forsaking his departmental' duties entire
ly. This, in itself, was an action without
precedent, and showed the leniency and
tolerance of the President, rather than
anything else. He would have been justi
fied, In dropping, the Hon. Webster Davis
at that time, and appointing some one
else to the office of Assistant Secretary
of tho Interior. But he was generous,
and held Mr. Davis office open for him.
After making a hasty trip to the Trans
vaal, nnd gaining more or leas cheap
newspaper notoriety, he returned to
America, resigned his position in the In
terior Deportment and went before tho
people on the lecture platform as a
mountebank, posing as tho "friend of the
Boers." Again he sought and obtained
cheap notoriety. He held Boer sympathy
meetings In various sections of the coun
try, and was always assisted by tho ca
lamity howlers of tho Democratic party.
In all of these meetings there was a
marked absence of Republicans. He had
as his supporters and co-workers such
illustrious men as Suiter of New Tork
and Lentx of Ohio, when he held forth in
Washington "and other points In the East

men who are discredited even In their
own party. '
Davis naturally felt grateful for even
their poor support, and was correspond
ingly sore because he -did not receive any
hearty Republican, support in his fitful
sblurges. And at last, after a vain effort
to have his Boer position Indorsed by the
Republican convention, ho went off, a
sorehead, to Kansas City, where he pre
vailed upon the calamity-howlers and sen
sationalists of the Democratic party, and
found some consolation and sympathy.
And so Webster Davis became a Demo
crat. He stamped himself a sorehead
looking for revenge when he announced
his flop to the Democracy, and thereby
lost all the respect of his former Repub
lican friends. But even by the Demo
crats he will not be respected. They will
coddle him for the votes he may be able
to make, and for his own personal sup
port, but they will not respect him. No
party respects a slider, and when the
campaign is over and Davis Is no longer
ablo to assist the Democracy, he will be
lost to view and will sink Into oblivion,
as- the Democrats will forsake him and
leave him without sympathy and without
support. People will listen to a man of
convictions who is consistent In support
ing them, but they do not care for the
words 'of a sensationalist, and Davl3 ef-'
forts to make Democratic votss -will un
doubtedly prove much less valuable than
some of his press agents proclaim.
-The Doer an a Soldier.
Thomas- F. SCllinl. in Scrlbner's.
The Boer must be wheedled Into fight
ing, and none but native officers can do
this. 'If not treated to his notion, he will
sulk, and a Chinaman will fight better
than a sulky Boer. He is not a soldier,
and doesn't pretend to be. The gtamor'
of battle attracts him not, and his pride
In victory Is so subdued as to seem en
tirely licking The dull routine of tho
laager oppresses him. Ho pines for the
Isolation and ease of his 'farm, and he
frequently Insists upon haying his wife
with him in the laacer.
Let me tell the truth. The Boer Is lazy.
He Is almost too lazy to go and fight.
He Is entirely tc-o lazy to scout or do
picket duty or dig trenches. He will per
mit a position to remain easily assailed
when a few strokes of pick and shovel
would render it impregnable. He makes
nothing of sleeping on sentry duty, know
ing well that he will not be punished If
caught. Environment and climatic In
fluences are responsible for; this lack of
physical energy. He acknowledges no
sequence In rank, nnd If his own com
mandant is killed will take coders from
no one under the Commandant-General.
This leaves endless openings, for demoral
ization and disintegration of the comman
does. If the Boer decides to abandon a
position no protest of any officer will pre
vent his carrying out his design or check
his retreat. '
Take him altohetgeh, he Is a very unsat
isfactory soldier for trained officers to
Not Spcalcinff to Him.
