THE WHEAT MARKET
A Phenomenal Advance Oyer
GRAIN IS SHIPPED TO INDIA
Two Steamers Loaded and Sailing Vea

1 York Sales.
Chicago, Oct. 17. The semi-excited
state of the wheat market, as yester
day's session was coming to a close was
increased this morning to a fair.lv good
specimen of general alarm. That fear
was well grounded as it turned out.
There was not a single bushel to be had
for less than l8'c advance on yesterday's
closing price, and very little under 74c,
or ljc higher than it closed at yester
day, for December delivery. The reason
for such a eudden and material rise, fol
lowing the big jump of the previous day,
Btuck clear out from the official bulletin
boards. Foreign markets led in the
scramble, just as they did on the day
A public dispatch from' Liverpool
quoted an advance there over night of
2- pence per cental, which is equivalent
to three cents per bushel. Private
cablegrams reported Liverpool and Lon
don wheat excited at the advance al
ready named at tbe former and at 7id
.per quarter at the latter place. New
York wired that foreigners were active
buyers there and claimed' that 175 boat
loads equal to 1,400,000 bushels were
taken there. With that for a starter the
prices bid for December at the opening
were from 73 to 74c, against 72J at
the end of yesterday's session. Tbe
crowd had scarcely got accustomed to
74c wheat when further dispatches of an
exciting character started them again
and the price rose to 74jgC
. A San Francisco message said that two
more steamer cargoes of wheat had been
taken for India and that inquiries were
being made for Bailing vessels to take
wheat to the same destination. The
significance of tbe latter point in the
dispatch was the indication it gave of an
expected long continuance of Indian re
quirements. On top 6f all that a private cablegram
reported the Berlin market excited and
five marks higher, that being an equiva
lent to 3bC per bushel. It is no wonder
that speculators scrambled tor wheat.
And they did. There were simply no
bear needs of any kind and the only
chance the anxious shorts had was when
a speculator, satisfied with the profit in
sight, put his line on tbe market. There
was plenty of this done, but everything
.was grabbed and the price never stopped
advancing until 76c had been scored,
exactly four cents over yesterday's clos
ing. Here realizing increased and was
sufficient to break tbe price of December
to 75 at tbe close.
Prices In New York.
New York, Oct. 17. The bull cam
paign in wheat wa3 marked today, by
- another sensational advance in prices
and a heavy trade.
The 'Frisco Btarlcet.
San FEANCiscoj Oct. 17. At the clos
ing session of the Produce Exchange
call board today wheat had a gradual
decline. In the local speculative mar
ket, the highest daring the present ex
citement was reached when December
wheat was sold at $1.50 per cental,
against XA as the best price paid yes
The Indian Kamine.
London, Oct. 17. Famine in northern
India which now appears to De inevi
table, causes the greatest anxiety here
and it is recognized that the import of
American wheat is likely to be tbe
prime factor of the situation. Prices
in the affected districts have risen con'
BiaeraDly, and California wheat en
route is sold in advance at higher prices
than native wheat, indicating . a convia
tion that prices will have risen still
higher by the time tbe imports arrive.
The Indian government has already
sketched out vast schemes for railroad
canal and other relief work.

SILVER WItL FALL.
Bayard's Letter Aired in England
tentlon of the Silver Party.
London, Oct. 17. The Statistician
points out that the position of silver is
most nnplaasant, though, it adds, '"the
price may be temporarily maintained.
Tbe opinion is growing that the silver
party will not be successful in tbe
American elections, consequently silver
will not receive the support dl United
States purchasers and tbe Chinese de
mand is nil." Continuing the Statisti
cian says : ,
"The threatened failure of the crops
n India Is serious matter for silver, as,
with a scarcity of food, the natives are
inclined to sell rat her than buy orna
ments. Hence the Indian demand may
disappear for a considerable time. Tmus
it aDpeare that a serious fall in the price
of silver is probable unless the silver
party gains power in America."
The letter of the United States am
bassador here, Mr. Thomas F. Bayard,
to Samuel Bancroft, Jr., of Wilmington.
Delaware, advocating tbe Democratic
support of Palmer and Buckner, which
was published in the United States on
Monday last and which was published
in this country today, surprises the
English who, while approving the senti
ments expressed, think that Bayard has
committed "fresh indiscretion."
The Daily Chronicle news' placard
reads: "Bayard denounces Bryan."
and the Daily Telegraph says : "To
English minds there is some incongruity
in an ambassador taking an active part
in political struggles." '
The St. James . Gazette remarks :
'Mr. Bayard's letter isas sensible as all
bis utterances; but we fear it is too sen
sible for the great American nation and
is not liable to please the mob or . tbe

LOST BIS TEMPER.
A gpailih Editor Aroused by
Madrid, Oct. 18. Commencing upon
the statement contained in a dispatch
from Washington that President Cleve
land intends to intervene in Cuba in i
manner tantamount to the recognition
of the independence of the insurgents
the Impartial declares that Spain ongbt
to demand ft fnll explanation of tbe
"She cannot brook a threat over her
head," continues the Imparcial, "even
for a single day. By what right does
the United States define the time tor
Spain to settle a question of her internal
administration? It must be affirmed
before tbe whole world that the-Ameri
can government cannot impose any sort
of terms upon us."
After denouncing the United States
fictitious neutrality, the Imparcial con
eludes as follows :
"The conduct of the United States
will arouse international indignation.
If Spain should remain alone in a con
flict with tbe United States, Spaniards,
by their own efforts, will know . how to
mark the difference between the noble
defenders of their own property and the
vile trafficker at Washington." -
Bryan's Rotten Ess Argument.
As a contribution to financial and
economio thought the following utter
ance of Mr.' Bryan, made in Kentucky,
is the most remarkable yet offered even
"If any man in this community would
offer to buy all the eggs produced at 25
cents a do?en and. was able to make
good the offer, nobody would sell eggs
for less, no matter what the ' cost of
production, whether 1 cent or 6 cents a
dozen. So with silver. Free coinage
would establish the market price of sil
ver at $J. aa, and nobody would sell it
for a cent less."
Why limit the price of eggs to 25
cents and of silver to $1.29? If the rea
soning is sound, the price in each case
might easily be doubled, and the conse
quent benefit to the human race corre
spondingly increased. And why stop
with eggs and silver? Why not mark up
the price of everything you wish to
buy ffer to pay double or treble what
is asked for it and keep on paying that
price to all comers hold it there?
That's all you have to do hold it
there. "Nobody would sell it for a cent
less," says Bryan, so long as you held
it. "So with silver. " And the man
who is putting forth such thought as
this is a candidate for the presidency of
70,000,000 of people in the closing
years of the nineteenth century!
Tbe Bargain Counter Candidate.
"Some of the reports say that the
women went wild over Bryan at differ
ent places along his route," remarked
the horse editor.
"That's natural," replied the snake
editor. "He- is the bargain counter can
