SAN FRANCISCO. Aug. 4. (Special.)-Tbe
slump In the local wheat market during tbe
past few days Is attributed to Urge offerings
of Northern wheat here at less than option
prices. Weakness continued today, and De
cember was freely sold down to 1.42. despite
the firmer tone of Chicago and foreign mar
kets. Cash -prices closed weak, buyers hav

sharp drop, but became steadier In the final

Receipts of leading descriptions of Summer
fruits were lighter. The season has about
reached Its height. Surplus stock? of peaches
and pears are still heavy, but are expected
to be largely reduced' In a few days, when
firmer prices may be seen. The market Is glut

are ecarce. Seedless grapes- advanced sharply.
Lemons and oranges -are easier. Mexican

Prices for potatoes are bo higher, but a
steadier tone was reported In river kinds, as
the low values have awakened a shipping de

SPORT IN STOCK TRADING
MARKET SHOWS BOTH CONSIST
ENCY AND STRENGTH.
Union Pacific and St. Paul ParUclr
pate in the 3Iovcmcnt Con
fidence In Grain Crop.
NEW YORK. Aug. 4. The exchange had
quite a lively hour following the opening to-,
day and the market showed more consist
ency and strength during that period than
at any time during the week. A' good effect
was produced on sentiment by the fact that
tnich eubstantial market leaders as Union
Pacific and St. Paul were fully partlclpatant
In the movement, to the exclusion to some
of the less Influential specialties which have
made up mueh of the market's prominence
on recent days. But the effort to carry prices
higher seemed to have exhausted itself with
this 'spurt, and the later trading reverted
to the class of specialties which may be
moved with much less effort. With the sub
sidence of the early active demand, a drop
ping tendency' In the standard stocks became
observablei The heaviness had no mere news
to explain It than did the early strength.
The active buying of the first hour was pro
fessedly based on growing confidence ' In the
grain crops, and It was sought to convey the
Impression that information was available to
the buyers on this subject through the ar
rangements for securing supplies by tbe great
The preference tor less conspicuous market
Readers in the later movements turned to some
of the high-priced railroad t locks which the
extraordinary market course of Lackawanna
has helped to make attractive. Record prices
for Central Railroad of New Jersey and for
Northern Pacific, with the exception of the
comer in the latter stock, -were the conse
quence. American Smelting was another stock
to touch to a. new Thigh record prlcV A num
ber of minor stocks made their appearance on
the tape for the first time la' months, to be
moved upwards with a dash on llgbr transac
tions. The Coalers and tbe Southern group
rested after their previous advance.
The early atrength in Union Pacific waa ex
plainable by the reports of net earnings for
that system and for Southern Pacific for
June, which made their appearance during
the day. showing an Increase over the pre
ceding June, which reported nearly 41.000,000
for the two systems.
The check to buying which showed In the
later market may have been due to considera
tion of the bank statement. It was notice
able, however, that an easier tone was reported
in the market tor time loan and for call
loans there was hardly any demand tor' what
was offered. The sub-Treasury has with
drawn something over 44.000.000 during the
week thus far. notwithstanding the Govern
"ment Interest payable August 1. New York
contlnuesr to gain cash on the interior move
ment, but not sufficient to offset this drain,
so that a decrease of over 42.000.000 In the
cash jltem of the banks la indicated tor to
morrow's bank statement.
London supplied no business to this market,
the holidays there extending until next Tues
day serving to discourage new business.. The
Irregular tone of the later market continued
up to the closinr.
Bonds were steady: total sales, par value,
43.03S.000. United States bonds were un
changed on call.

'JETW YORK. Augr. 4. Engineer Wil
liam Moody rolled with his -engine down
a steep embankment at Bayonne. N. J..
today, and was drowned. The engine
plunged out ot sight into deep water.
The crowded excursion train on the Cen
tral Railroad of New Jersey was left
marooned and with passengers panic
stricken, on a trestle above the bay, saved
from the same fate only by a broken
coupling-pin and the bravery of the lost
engineer, who went to his death while In
the act of setting the emergency brakes.
The train was running from Atlantic
City, and had Just passed over a bridge
at moderate speed, when the engine ran
into an open switch, and was derailed,
along with the tender and two baggage
cars. At this point the rails are laid on
a steep embankment, which forms the
bridge approach, and the engine and
tender toppled over the embankment.
The coupling-pin between the tender and
first car snapped, leaving the coaches,
which, fortunately, stopped, on the em
bankment Tne fireman saved himself by
Jumping. No passengers were injured.
Made His Living by Marrying.
ASHEVTLLE. N. C Aug. 4. Two let
ters and a photograph received tonight
from Fort, Worth. Tex., indicate that the
body of an Englishman which has lain
unidentified In a receiving vault In this
city for nine months Is that of a man
who claimed to be "Lord Douglas.' but
who was. In fact, known to the police ot
Fort Worth as a bigamist. The photo
graph and description accompanying it
fits the body perfectly, as can be ascer
tained from such a short examination.
The., letters contain evidence of
the statement that Douglas was married
to at least four women. The Mesdaraes
Douglas known at present are women
In California and Colorado, from whom
the first Mrs. Douglas has heard.
All of the women claim, according to
the letters, to have been deserted shortly
after marriage, and Mrs. B. E. A. Doug
las declares that Douglas robbed her of
all her money and Jewelry.
