HOW TO HETTEK THE MARKET
Suggested That a Gigantic Combine Be
Formed and that RaJea Amount On
ly to the Demand.
London, November 23. The Mark
Lane Kxpres today, communing on
tha wheat outlook, says:
"Wo expect that the decrease of
French wheat acreage In 197, owing: to
the latenes of th sowing season, will
be much larger than any Increase fh
this country. The sowing of Axlma
wheat In Russia are admitted to be
smaller than usual. The rise In price
haai stimulated Russian markets and
the line of spring Ghlrka sowing- ia
likely to offset the Axlma deficiency. VTe
must await further news from India
before concluding that the drought Is
over. Injury haa been done in any
event, and there cannot be any wheat
available for export prior to April, 1898.
AuatraJla I importing California wheat
and has no surplu available for ablp-
ment to Europe."
Commenting upon the past week'
market, the Mark Lane Express remark:
"The farmer are (polling the market
by overaupply. We auggest that a cen
tral chamber organise a society of
wheat growers, pledged to sell only In
such quantities aa the situation demands."
Continuing. It aays: . "The advance
of 2 8d in the price of wheat In Pari
alnce the end of October. 1 a matter
of some importance, a France haa
hitherto been boasting that she haa a
well supplied market If the purchases
of foreign wheat by France Increases,
the situation will become much strong
er." CHICAGO MARKET BETTER.
Chicago, November 23. There was a
decided weakness around the opening
of the wheat market today, although It
did not last long. May, which closed
Saturday at 79-'n cents, opened at from
T!S to 79Su most of the trading being
around the lower figure. The weakness
was attributable to several causes, the
most influential one being, perhaps, the
last Black Sea shipments.
Opening cables also were disappoint
ing, and further rains were reported in
drought-stricken India. The market
turned stronger at the last hour. Pri
vate cables gave unfavorable reports of
the Argentine outlook. Covering by
shorts again set in and May sold up to
804. the high point of the day. Selling
on the advance, however, was sufficient
to break the price again to 804, where

DIAMOND ANKLET FOCND.
In Keeping of a Monkey. Who
Holding It for a Rise.
New York, November 23. A few days
ago an actress In "The Cherry Pick
er," at the Fourteenth Street Theatre,
lost a diamond anklet at a matinee,
missing it on her return to her dressing
after the scene in which the had to
wear it. The manager offered a r it
ward for It, but believed, be said, that
it must have been found by somebody
connected with the theatre. It now
appear that he was right In this. The
monkey which appear In the play had
It. The supposition Is that It came off
on the stage, and the monkey picked It
up and held It aa an investment.
The property man, who ence kept
dog, saw the monkey frequently paw
ing In the straw in a comer of bis cage.
and supposed that he must have buried
a bone there. The monkey might have
kept the anklet till a larger reward was
offered If bis vanity had not overcome
his prudence and led him to put It
around bi neck on Sunday afternoon.
The property man, having engagements
for the afternoon and evening, oame
to feed the monkey earlier than usual.
and so took him by surprise and got
the anklet back. There waa talk at first
of discharging the monkey and getting
a new one, but the injustice of this waa
quickly seen, and the question now ia
in what form to pay him the reward of
Sl.MO so as to do him the greatest pos

Where will be the location of the ex
port Hour mills? Naturally where the
elevators are, and where the grain car
are stored. It Is known In certain quar
ters that schemes are brewing for the
building at Flavel and New Astoria of
large flour mills for the export trade.
Thus It will be with the proposed ex
port saw mill, cotton and linen twine
spinning mill and other factories. They
must be at the center of rallrond ac
commodations, where there is plenty of
room and a large business can be han
dled cheaply and expeditiously. On
Young's bay. also will be the big dry
dock for the repairing of the largest
oecan going vessels, which alone will
be the principal factor In establishing
the supremacy of this port. What then,
do all these great enterprises mean for
the west side? They simply mean that
thousands of workmen and skilled la
borers will soon be seeking homes. Can
they afford to live on high priced prop- j
erty on the hills of old Astoria? No.
They must bo near their business and

they will doubtless settle.

SAN BENITO WRECKED.
Went Down Near Point Arena and Is
a Total Loss.
Point Arena, Col., November 2S.--The
steam collier San Benito Is fast aground
a few miles north of this place and will
be a total wieck. Eight of the vessel's
crew have been drowned and the re
maining thirty-five, after suffering ter
ribly from exposure, were taken from
the wreck today by boats from the res
cuing steamer Warott.
In a terrible fog Sunday morning the
San Benito crashed ashore In a dan
gerous locality and Is now resting on
the rocks, gradually beating to pieces
by the combined action of the gale and
surf. When the Bteamer grounded two
bouts were lowered, but they were cap
slxed In the surf and eight men were
drowned. The captain and the remain
der of the crew stuck to the ship until
taken off by the rescuing steamer..
The British ship Rockhurst, which ar
rived Sunday from Valparaiso, reports
having sighted about thirty miles off
the river the overturned hull of a
schooner of about 100 tons. The first
mate says that he ilrst saw the derelict
Saturday and that the Rockhurst pass
ed within a cable length of it. The ill-
fated vessel was drifting to the north,
carried along by the strong currents.
What vessel It could be is a mystery
to local shipping men. The only
schooner overdue at this port Is the
Surprise, from Tolstoi bay, Alaska, but
she registers only twenty-six tons. The
reported derelict was, no doubt, cap? iz-
ed during the recent gale. There Is but
little doubt that the crew were drowned,
or, even If the seamen succeeded In get
ting Into the boats, they would have
died of exposure. To all appearances
the hull was uninjured.
This Is another mystery of the sea
which, probably, will never be fath
