THE MORNING OREGONIAN, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2G, 1001.
The distribution of a large amount of
steamer stuff, a car of bananas and other
miscellaneous produce yesterday kept the
commission-house portion of Front street
busy nearly all day. Aside from this,
there was the usual amount of Monday
business, with no features of special in
terest in the situation. The wheat mar
ket -was fairly steady in the East, at
the close, although it wobbled consider
able during the session. Potatoes are a
shade higher on an Improved demand in
Ban Francisco. Butter Is weak acain. and
eggs opened the week unchanged, with
receipts pretty heavy and some indications
cf lower prices later, although no cut
was made yesterday. Poultry was all
cleared up Saturday, and the outlook is
favorable for a continuance of last week's

The wheat market In the Northwest
seems to be largely In the hands of the
millers at the present time, as the for
eign market does not seem to justify the
prices that are paid for milling purposes.
Exporters are quoting around 55 and 55&
cents for "Walla "Walla, and a good article
ir milling purposes will undoubtedly
command more money. The freight mar
ket is unchanged, with some tonnage ob
tainable at 40 shillings, about CO days
ahead, but with only a moderate amount

XE1V YORIC STOCK MARKET.
Opening Exhibitions of Strength
Folloived ny n Sadden Relaptie.
NEW YORK, Feb. 25. The sock mar
ket made a remarkable exhibition this
r -ralng of spasmodic strength followed
a sudden relapse and a period of
--deviating dullness and dropping prices
up to the close. The principal Influence
In the opening bulge were the rumors
and commercial accounts 'of the alleged
details of the steel merger and the terms
of exchange of the proposed new secur-
itles for the existing stocks of the steel
companies. This. accumulation of con
jectures was supplemented by the re
ports of the proceedings of brokers up
town during- the three days interval
while th,e stock exchange was closed,
The prices bid by some of these brokers
for blocks of the steel stocks and the
sales made according to report about the
two hotels were calculated to excite
The excited bidding which was thus
attracted in the opening dealings sent
prjees of the steel stocks up" like a rocket.
Tin Plate .was the most notable In the
width of its lluctations. The stock was
rushed up 15 points in a few minutes,
and after dropping back was lifted again
almost to the top level, but It ultimately
gave way to the whole market. The
other steel stocks, including both the
common and the preferred, were up
from 1 to nearly 6 points. These prices
brought in heavy realizing sales from the
start: The professional room traders
were obviously disposed to let the group
alone, not caring to compete with In
siders in pretensions to accurate know
ledge of the value of the stock. Besides
this influence, which whipped the steel
stocks into effervesence, the interval
since Thursday has seen the publication
of the favorable" bank statement of Sat
urday. Traders bought stocks according to
their Invariable rule on the showing of
an increase in the' surplus reserve. Last
week's gain in cash was a good deal of
a relief to the apprehension regarding
the money market. The check of the
recent heavy Increasing tendency In tho
loan item was superficially regarded as
favorable, but the conviction that It was
due to the calling in of loans placed In
the stock market led to some later ap
prehension that the process would be
continued In further preparation for cor
poration .financing operations. London
sent higher prices under the favorable
influence of the success reported for the
British arms In South Africa. These In
fluences caused some advances in the
railroad list of from one to two points.
A good demand developed later In the
day for Southern Railway stocks, and
there were some isolated instances of
strength among some of the less import
ant railroad stocks. All other consider
ations, however, yielded to disappoint
ment over the still further postponement
of the official announcemcn of the
terms of the steel merger, and to grow
ing skepticism as. tor the accuracy of re
ports already current.
"With .the reactlpnary tendency thus de
veloped there came renewed apprehen
sion over the effect on the money mar
ket of the steel merger. Gains In the
railroad list were, with a few exceptions,
wiped out, and some of the most im
portant of the steel stocks fell back be
low Thursday's level, Steel & "Wire fall
ing 4 points lower than Thurday's close.
National Steel 2, and National Tube 1.
Tin Plate reacted 12 points from the top,
and closed with a net gain of only 3
points. Aterlcan Hoop rose to the best
at the end with a net gain of G points.
There was some stiffening in the group
on short covering at the close, but then,
was nothing left of the early buoyancy.
Pacific Mall lost 6 on Friday's disaster
on tne uoiden Gate. The bond market
was Inclined to weaken in the afternoon,
but retained a part of the morning ad
vance. Total sales par value, 53,155,000.

little effect on the other departments.

first accepted the higher prices, in the
subsequent transactions the Influence of
New York was adverse, Union Pacific
especially weakening. In this, however,
there was a rally all around. Influenced
by the receipt of better quotations from

Chicago Grain and Produce.
CHICAGO, Feb. 25. Corn was an active
and somewhat Imposing market today.
The. market was mostly a professional
one. governed by sentiment rather than
any deductions from the news. The bull
and the bear leaders worked vigorously
for some time with success perching on
ono banner, and then on tho next, while
crowd followed. May opened unchanged
to Uc higher, at 4114c to 41?4c, and quickly
touched 41?i641 under good commission
buying, led by outsiders. The bull lead
er took in half a million bushels of May
on the rise, hut the commencement of
liquidation and Bhort selling by bears
forced the market back to ilHc. The mar
ket then rallied, but broke Immediately to
40c At tho close May was easy, lc
lower than Saturday, at 4114c.
Tinder the influence .of steadiness at
Liverpool and bullish statistics, wheat
opened the market firm. May a shade to
14c higher, at 7614 to 7614c. There was a
fairly active trade for a few minutes, but
when outside orders were filled, the mar
ket became a featureless local affair and
lost some of Its strength. May dropping
to 76Hg,767ic The strength developed by
corn caused eoverlmr bv shorts on the
decline, and May rallied to 7610. Heavy
selling sent the market back to 76c. The
close was steady. May c higher at 76
Oats were fairly active In appearance,
but the volume of business transacted was
light. May closed a shade lower, at
Provisions were quiet, but the market
had a firm undertone, based on light hog
receipts and higher prices at the stock
yards. May pork closed 5c higher, lard
25c up, and ribs 2c Improved.

F. G. Logan of Chicago, wires R. W.
McKInnon& Co., as follows:
Wheat averaged firm throughout the
session In spite of the disappointing
cables. There was some selling of long
wheat by local traders, who have been
working the bull side, and on very poor
foreign demand. On the hard spots, It
appears as though some powerful Inter
est prevents the market from advancing,
and, on the soft places, wheat Is bought In
volume sufficient to prevent further de
cline. The action of the market Is de
cidedly opposed to the news, but we are
Inclined to think the tendency Is towards
higher prices. The visible showed a small
decrease and Is now 57,536.000 bushels, as
compared with 53,544.000, the same date In
1900. Estimated cars for -tomorrow, 115.

The Lakes of Ivlllnrney.
PORTLAND, Feb. 25. (To the Editor.)
In addition to my reply to Mr. Dlllion's
note, which appeared in the Issue of The
Oregonian of February 22, and which was
a sufficient answer to any and all state
ments contained therein, I may say that
the Lakes of Killarney axe owned, con
trolled, surrounded and infested by a gang
of the most persistent and shamelees
"grafters" that I met during ray entire
tour through Europe. The sole ambition
of those who are financially interested in
Chamber of Commerce
those beautiful gems of Irish scenery, is
to systematically "Ueece" the tourists,
and particularly the American tourists.
During my sojourn in England a report
Became current that the Lakes of Klllar
ney had be"en, or were about to je, sold
to an American company. You cannot
Imagine the joy which this intelligence
brought to the hearts of all, and partic
ularly to the traveling public. Of course,
the people of Kerry County, not the
"grafters," are most lovable and excel
lent characters. I know not and care but
little, as to whether Mr. Dlllion's father
Is a landlord or a "bogtroiter." This has
nothing to do with the case. Landlord
Ism Is the curse of Ireland, and the good
people cf that beautiful country are en
deavoring to rid themselves of this "gen
try" in aa easy and as practicable a man
ner as possible. I hope I have made my
self understood without giving offense.

PORTLAND. Feb. 25.-(To the Editor.)
Your editorial of today. "Direct Primaries
Betrayed," is apparently bassd on m!scon
ceptlon. House bill 1SS. which passed
both houses, is emphatically a direct pri
mary bill; Under Us provisions there
will be no county convention and no con
vention within the limits of any division
within the county, and all delegates from
the county or any district within the
same to conventions, such as state and
congressional conventions must be chosen
at1 the same time as are made the nomi
nations for county, municipal and other
offices within the countr. 3o far as can
be made applicable to a county. House
bill 1SS embodies, every feature shown in
the draft of a. bill which was printed
by The Oregonian on December 17 last,
and It Is as drastic In ita reforms as can
be' conceived, Jn the light of present In
formation and experience. Further, this
bill is hot open to constitutional objec
tion, as local legislation or otherwise.
There was no question ut that It was
impossible to secure any legislation of
this character for the entire state, and
this bill presents the best that could be
attained from this Legislature.
Senate bill 191. which also passed both
housee. Is not assumed to be direct pri
mary legislation. It was framed by
friends of the direct primary bill, and Is
so constructed as to make it consistent
with the direct primary bill. It will not
be operative where the Clrect primary
A candid judgment muss concede, after
full Information, that the Multnomah del

every ante-election pledge. If every pub.

rapidly approach good government.

Tortured hy Xevr Jersey Mob.
NEW YORK, Feb. 25. An excited mob
In Matteawan, N. J., last night hanged
Charles Herbert, a resident of that place.
In an effort to make him confess that he
had started a fire which destroyed the
business portion of the town, January 27.
Herbert protested his Innocence. He was
strung up a second time and when low
ered again asserted that he was guilty.
This time the torture ceased and the man
was taken to jail. Last night a dwelling
occupied by Herbert's mother caught fire
and after the llames were extinguished It
was discovered that the stairway In
the house had been soaked with kerosene.
Suspicion pointed to Herbert, and his ar
rested and torture followed.
