Speaking of patent medicines, the
Judge says : "I wish to deal fairly and
honorably -with all, and when I find an
article that will do what it is recom
mended to do, I am not ashamed to say
eo. I am acquainted with Dr. Vander
pool (having been treated by him for
cancer), and have used his blood medi
cine, known as the S. B. Headache and
.Liver Cure, and while I am 75 years old,
and have used many pills and other
remedies for the blood, liver and kid-
i neys, I must say that for a kidney tonic
in B rights disease, and as an alterative
for the blood, or to correct the action of
the stomach and bowels, it is a very su
perior remedy, and beats anything I
ever tried. " J. ii. Nelson,

WALL STREET REPORT
The General Drift of Maney ana Tone of
toe Trafle Situation.
SPECULATION HELD IX CHECK.
Hardening Tendency of the Money Mar
kets Both Here and in Europe.
THE DALLES MARKET QUOTATIONS
Interesting Report of tUe Wheat
Produce Situation for tbe Car
Henry Clews' Weekly Commercial
circular for the period under review says
that in Wall street the tone of basiness
lacks any special element of speculation.
Many factors in the condition of bus.r
ness at large are favorable to a higher
range of prices, which had been very
generally expected to appear at this
stage of the season ; but cocnter factors
have appeared which are holding spec
ulative tendencies in check for Ihet'me
being. There is, . however, a very
healthy demand for rai)rb?d mortgages
and prime dividend-paying shares, and
that fact encoura ges the bull owners of
stocks to stick to their holdings.
The hardening tendeccy of tbe money J
markets, here and in Europe, nat orally
holds speculative transactions in cherk, J
the more so as the driit has run farther
than has been generally expected. We
have been assured by Chi. ago banking
authorises that that monev center has
so far gained control of interior finances
that the great grain states would no
longer be dependent on New York unus
for moving the crops. Some people have
beUevcd Ibis boast",' aid areco leequent'y
taken by surprise at the present condi
tion otour banks; but the fact has been
that, since the end of July, the surplus
reserves of the clciriDg-house banks
have fallen from $2-1,000,000 to' zero, and
that $20,000,000 of money have been
sent from New York to the inteiio..
This is a change so sweeping and so un
expected that it necessarily becomes a
serious element in Wall street opera
tions, as its effects are apparent Ja
stringency and unusually high rates for
loans and discounts.
Snvmary of Trade and Easiness for tbe
Thursday, Nov. 30th. After all that
the week hps been one of political issues
and of the presidential contest at tbe
polls, there has bea tbe nsaal great
activity in trade in the several lines, of
merchandise, produce and real estate.
The streets have been at times quite
jamcd with teams rom the rural dis
tricts,, and from the distant iate-ior.
Purchases have treu large and the osh
has been paid down on the spot.
In t;onyersation with a leading dea'er
yesterday, he informs us that although
the season was late before tbe fall trade
opened, the volun? 3 of business so iar
exceeded expectations, and is put down
as fine o! unusual interest and magni
tude, and that tbe opinion prevails that
it will i oatinue until aft3r the hol;ci-ys.
P-i- es in the general line of ire-ehan-dise
is weU maintained for the season,
which are lower than formerly. Jn sta
ple groceries there have been some
changes to note. Sugars have d -opped
another J of a cent a lb. On all f ades,
since our last report. Dating the past
week a large invoice of sugar was re
ceived from the refineries in China, at
rort'aDd, which, coming into competi
tion with the San Francieeo refineries,
is expected to cause a still further de
cline. Salt has felt the influence of
large arrivals by ocean vessels, aod a
decline is reported in Liverpool 100 and
200 lb. sacks, of 20 and 25 cents per bag.
Dried fruits are very firm, owing to the
increased demand and the limited
yearly product. Prunes are marked up
2 cents per lb. Sundried and evapor
ated apples are also quoted a shade
higher. Dried grapes and loose musca
tel raisins are firm at 10 cents per lb.
with limited receipts.
The produce market is somewhat un
satisfactory. Receipts, generally speak
ing are meager and prices unsettled.
The egg market is very stiff, and receipts
are limited. Some dealers are biddhig up
on former quotations 2 cents a dozen.
Poultry is in fair demand, that is to
say: choice fowls,, prima early spring
chickens, find a ready market at $3 50 to
$4 00 per dozen,,, while late, and old
fowl; are quoted at $2 25 to $3 50 per
doz. Turkeys are beginning to come in
to market.- We heard of one lot of 50
that were sold at 8 cents per lb., live
weight. - Small lots of extra good, will
sell at 10 cents per lb. But few geese
have been sold or offered and those
brought $7 per dozen. The maiket
could be quoted at $7 to $8 00 per doz.
Ducks are leing offered freely and prices
raDge according to size and condition.
One buyer says (3 00 to $5 00 per doz.
another says $4 00 is the average. The
Dalles market is governed largely on tbe
Portland quotation, as purchases.axe.
made by dealers for that market.
Potatoes are said to be S'.'an-e, and are
firm on quotations. The general belief
is that prices will steadily advance as
the season passes. Some few orders
have been filled west of the mountains
and shipped to this city within tbe last
few days, which 1-ave supplied the pres
Beef ' cuttle quotations remain un
changed, mutton is very firm -and js
said to be short of supply, with a better
inquiry, and prices looking up. 1'ive
dollars was paid for .some large flue
sheep dur'ng the week.
The wheat mai ket is without change,
prices have been fairly steady for the
week past. Foreign and eastern mar
kets show nothing that is encouraging,
save they are steady with now and then
a feverish pulse. Reports from Chii-ego
are that the wheat blockade is not en
tirely clear, and ' that buyers are shy.
In Portland and San Francisi b there is
no change , in quotations. The Dalles
market quotations are above other mar
kets in r proportion. We quote 6-!c for
No. 1, and 57c for No. 2. "
The inteest in pontics the week past,
has been the cause for a stagnation in,
real estate transactions. Tne transfers
have been less than the wek befo e, on

Cleve'ard has 274
Congress ia democratic by a clear
majority of about 50. New York is
democratic by not less tban 30,000 and
has elected a democratic assembly. New
Jersey is democratic by 5,000 but Kean,
republii?n, for governor claims his
election. Connecticut is democratic by
not less tban 1,000, and has chosen a
democratic governor and legislature.
Massachusetts has chosen Harrison
electors, and probably a republican state
ticket. All the rest of New England ia
republican. The legislature! in New
York is democratic, insuiing a demo
crai.-e sut "5- or ' Hiscock.
Cleveland has Illinois by 10,000 at
(least, some estimates put it at 75,000.
The entire democratic 8' ate ticket is also
elected, and the democrats have a ma
jority of the congressional delegation
and apparently obi; Jned control of both-bi-ancb
of tbe stjte legislature. As
(l 's stvte is to be rs-districted this win
ter, this will enable the democrats to so- -gerrymander
the state as to gain per
manent adv..nt-.ge in l'uiure elections.
Democrats claim California by a ma
jority conceded by . republicans.
Weaver's vote will exceed 20,000 in the
Connecticut gives Cleveland a plural
ity oi 5,000. The result for the legisla
ture is as follows : Senate, democrats,
13; republicans, 11. The house is e?ti
raatcd republican by al out 15, insuring
the election of a republican United
States senator. The democvats,- claim
