In view of the fact that most miners

fcardly be otherwise than beneficial, while
the trade at large must reap benefits

Other lines of trade which showed Im

ness of. cotton Is an element of uncer
tainty In the goods trade, but the firm
ness of these products, in the face of the
1& cent decline in price, is a tribute to
She strength of the market.
The situation in cereals shows little
change. A feature of the movement of
product to market at the present time
not heretofore noted this year, is the
Browing scarcity of cars reported west of
the Mississippi. Sugar Is lower than an

The strength of demand for finished
products of iron and s'teel, noted for some
time past, finds reflection In an improved
inquiry for the cruder forms at leading
Iron centers this week. Steel billets are
reported $2 higher at Ch'lcago, while a
Blmilar advance is noted at Pittsburg, and
efforts to raise the level of bessemer steel

cults. While Southern pig is unchanged
at the South, a sharp cut In the same
is noted at Western markets. The lower
ing of coal prices, expected, as a result
of the ending of the strike. Is expected
to help the export trade in coal, which
is, howeyer, confronted with high freight
rates. In spite of this it Is claimed that
3,200,000 tons of bituminous coal have been
eold for export to Mediterranean ports.

2CKRL ;EOR:k; .Oct. 2S. R.,G.,Dun &
iCo.'s weekly review of trade tomorrow
The .elections -mean a great deal to all
business Interests and although confi
dence In the future is seen on every
Jiand, It Is but natural that men do not
care to take unnecessary chances and
2ierfore delay new engagements as far
as possible until after the ballots are
counted. But contracts for steel rails for
the .season thus far are within 50,000 tons
pf last year's heavy bookings, and the
confidence in an ultimate marked Im
provement is so strong that all raw ma
terials are firm and without any specula
tive activity to stimulate them.
The agitation for an advance In billets,
though a small one, is an indication of
what the Iron and steel markets expect
Jn the next six months, and jn the great
Industries sellers of material could easi
ly make heavy contracts If they cared to
attach political provisions to their agree
ments. However unreasonable these fea
tures may be, it is likely to be better for
business In the long run that conserva
tive Ideas for the present are entertained.
The weather over a great part of the
country has been favorable for agricultur
al operations, which are progressing well,
end in the East the unseasonable tem
peratures have retarded general trade
comparatively little, as. there has been
no great stimulus yet this season.
Conditions in the Iron and steel mar
bet have steadily improved; orders grad
ually swell in volume and buyers make
Jess effort to secure concessions. In most
cases quotations the not altered, but
there is an advance, to $20 in Philadelphia
lor billets owing to the better business
In rails. PJg Iron moves freely, especial
ly at Chicago, where manufacturers have
contracted heavily for finished stuff In
excess of raw material on hand. Cast Iron
pipe is In urgent demand, and new plans
ior shipbuilding will take plates. Bridge
builders are buying structural forms
heavily. Makers of rails and other prod
ucts of iron have been accused of quoting
better, terms to foreign than to. domestic
buyers. If this is done-, it would seem
to be the manufacturers' affair rather
than the newspapers'. Miner metals are
quiet, except for further weakness in tin.
Silver has reached the highest price in
"Wheat also continued its downward
course owing to the good news here and
abroad, but an encouraging feature was
the accelerated foreign buying as quota
tions declined. Atlantic exports for the
week were 2,935,02$ bushels, against 2,253,-C25-a
year ago. and Pacific shipments
79.043 bushels, against 658,553 last year.
Sales of wool at the three chief East
ern markets -continue to increase, ex
ceeding 5,XD,000 pounds last week. Prices
are not altered, and bids slightly be
low the market are refused. Cotton goods
move rather freely as the price comes
nearer parity with raw materials but wide

"WALL .STREET REVIEW.
A Rising: Market One to the Aggres
sion of the Bull.
NEW YORK, Oct. 26. Bradstreefs
financial review tomorrow will say:
At the end of last week It was apparent
come large financial and speculative in
terests were taking an aggressive posi
tion on the bull side of the account. This
week has witnessed the development un
der such auspices of a rising market.
Transactions exceeded any attained in
many weeks and although manipulation
and speculative activity contributed
largelyTo the interest in the proceedings,
there have been more evidences of out
ride interest than for a long time. Buy
ing of stocks by commission houses has
In fact recommenced on a scale that con
trasts sharply with the lack of any such
support to prices ior several months past.
London also has taken a part in the
demonstration, and though the foreign
participation was mixed in character
Europe was a considerable buyer of
stocks on balance. Thi mBrPAP iiu
not mean that bullish jeculfttioa in I
Americans has "broken out In London.
On the contrary, It seems to result from
the fact that heavy operators there con
cluded that, as & consequence of election
uncertainties in this country, our market
would break, and sold, many calls on
"Yankee rails," beside selling them ehort
to a largo um total. This foreign bear
Interest was subsequently alarmed and
started to cover extensively, thereby-helping
the advance along. Local bear trad
ers nave likewise been obliged to cover
in the stoclcs of which they were largely
short, but It was also noticeable that the
smaller professional was not only prompt
to take -on the successive advances In dif
ferent stocks, but also Eeemed inclined
to put out .fresh short galea In fact the
street as a whole jseemed to be Impressed
with an idea that before election day
there might be a reaction in prices.

WASHINGTON, Oct 28. A suit for
150.000 damages for breach of .promise
against United States Senator William V.
Sullivan,' of Mississippi, was filed Inr the
District of Columbia Supreme Court this
afternoon, by Mai .Lucy Leeton, of Ox

defendant undertook and promised to
marry the plaintiff, which he", without
cause or rfght has refused to do."
The plaintiff claims that she met Sena
tor Sullivan about October 7, 1S95, In his
law office at Oxford, he being employed
to defend Ker brothec-in-law. She claims
that he made protestations of affection,
for her, "and began, by wiles and artifices
to Induce the plaintiff to accompany him

Unregistered voters who are furnished
with, blanks for the affidavits of free
holders that they are entitled to a voto
at the coming election are not required
to pay anything for the cervices of the .
Notary. At 103 Third street, and In
the Burkhard building, on the East

affidavits free of cost. If you did not
register, you should see one Of them
procure a divorce for her, "and, that ho
would keep her forever with him and
that she should occupy -as high a posi
tion as any lady in the land."
About December L 1R95, the plaintiff, at
the request of defendant, went with him
to New Orleans. In January, 1896, ac
cording: to affidavit filed today, the de
fendant placed, plaiktin in Nel3ons Busi
ness College at Memphis, Tenn., paying
her tuition and board. In May, 1897, he
secured a divorce for her. The affidavit
then alleges that May 10 of that year
plaintiff and defendant lived together in
Alexandria, Va., as Mr. and Mrs. W. L.

had an offer of marriage from a young
man who lived near her home, and asked
the defendant to consent to break off
their relations. The latter, she. claims,
urged that she should not marry the
ydung man. but wait and marry him the
following Summer. The affidavit recites
that the couple lived "together in Wash
ington and that the defendant finally
notified plaintiff that he was not finan
cially able to marry her. Also that
plaintiff, hearing defendant was ill, in
June, 1900, came- to Washington to see
him, and found him rooming with a wom

The stand of timber In'the East may be
In the neighborhood of 750,000,000,000 feet
board measure. With that estimate in
tho West, 630,000,000,000, the total stand In.
the country would appear to be, approxi
mately, 1,380,000,000,000 feet board measure.
In 1S90 the cut was about 25,000,000,000 feev,
and since then the annual cut has some
what increased. Thepresent stand would,
therefore, supply thejpresent rate of con
sumption for about 50 years. As a- ran

we have timber In stook sufficient to last
the present demands of our Industries for
nearly two generations. Some, species,

DISGDVERY OF HIS CRIME
HOW ALVORD'S DISHONESTY CAME
TO SIGHT. .
A Cleric Accidentally Saw Him
Changing the Clearing-House
t Sheet Reward Offered.
NEW YORK, Oct 26. In order to
make clear certain alleged misstatements,
Vice-President Hine, of the First National
Bank, today explained in deall some of
the Incidents leading up to the discovery
of Alvord's crime. In the first place, Mr.
Hine says Alvord -had. worked steadily
and without suspicion untll the afternoon
of the 18th Inst. J3y the -merest accident
a clerk saw him make' certain erasures In
the clearing-house sheet and while he
thought this unusual, said nothing about
It to anybody until shortly after 4
o'clock. By that time Alvord had gone,
but it was expected that he would re
turn as he had some work to finish. When
Alvord failed to return, tho clerk who
had seen him make the erasures, made
a casual remark to Assistant Cashier
Backus. The latter, without suspecting
tliat anything was, wrong, looked over
Alvord's balance and soon found several
discrepancies. He was on the point of
leaving matters for Alvord's adjustment
when he decided to make a further ex
amination and soon saw that many items
hadbeen deliberately falsified. By this
time the suspicions of the assistant cash
ier had become very much aroused. All
the high officials of tho bank had gone
for -the day, but meeting a number of
clerks, Mr. Backus went hurriedly over
the note teller's bopks and, in a few mo
ments had overwhelming proof of Al
Mr. Hme did not say how Alvord
learned that he -was- under suspicion, but
he confirmed the report that the note tel
ler returned to the bank .early Thursday
evening, and seeing others at work on
his books, realized that he had been dis
covered. Alvord had not been under sur
veillance up to that time, although it has
been said that he was suspected as early
as -the 16th Inst The bank officials are
convinced 'that he did not go to his home
the night, of the 18th and they are also
convinced that he has -not been there
since the morning of that date. Al
vord's crime came to light exactly three
days after the National Bank Examiners
completed their examination. While tho
First National Bank officers admit that
Alvord's wrong-doing is In no degree the
result of any laxity on the part of the
