the Turkish fleet in the harbor was

A NIGHT OF TERROR.
Lawlessness at Leadville Brought to
. .. ' an. End, l ;
Leadville, Colo., Sept 23. The
work of dynamite and. buckshot is in
evidence at the city morgue, where lie(
five bodies, yesterday full of the vigor-
ons life of the mountains one riddled
with bullets while doing his duty, two
horribly mangled by the dynamite they
were using to destroy life and property,
and the others full of leaden pellets re-'
oeived while they were fighting in the
shadows to destroy the lives of men
who had taken their places in the
mines. An additon was made to the
death list at 6 o'olock this evening by
the discovery of the body of Miohael
Daugherty on the ground near the Em
met mine, where he fell while leading
the rioters who went to the Emmet
flushed with their victory at the Coro
nado. There were many people in upper
windows and on house roofs provided
with night glasses, who in the bril
liant moonlight saw the savage attack
on the Emmet and the more than gal
lant repulse of the murderous rioters.
These watohers say that the first volley
from the mine was delivered at close
range, and that the attacking men fell
like grain before the sickle. How
many met the fate of Daugherty it may
remain for time and a search of long-
abandoned shafts in that vicinity to
tell. It now seems that the rioters
dragged away their dead and wounded,

fire department, has destroyed the last
yestige of sympathy for the strikers,
and this faot was evidenced at a large

A DAY OF PRAYER.
Suggested by Chicago Ministers, Ow
ing to the Political Situation.
Chicago, Sept. 23. At a union
meeting of Christian ministers of all
denominations today, which was called
by D. L. Moody and whioh completely
filled the Central Auditorium, the sug
gestion was made that in view of the
present political and industrial crisis,
it would qe desirable to have a day of
humiliation and prayer throughout the
nation. The suggestion so manifestly
reflected the feelings of all present that
the oall to all Christiana patriots of the
nation was at once proposed and
adopted by a rising vote.
"To the Christian oitizens of the
United States. In common with a
large number of our fellow -oitizens of
every religious and political creed, we
believe our nation is in the throes of a
great conflict, portending most serious
oonsequenoes, unless there be merciful
interposition of the divine hand. We
believe this to be true independently of
any settlement of the presidential, con
test, one way or another. .
"On one hand that mysterious fao
tor known as 'publio confidence' is de
clining, as illustrated by the depression
in both financial and industrial circles,
while on the other, political class and
even sectional feeling is running un
usually high, and likely to become in
tenser as the day of eleotion draws
near. Not only is it true that ques
tions requiring most careful and dispas
sionate consideration 'are very 'likely to
be determined in many instances by the
heat of passion, but after their deter
mination, the results may prove bane
ful over a wide surface and for a
lengthened period. We could not view
the situation, perplexing and forebod
ing as it is, outside its relation to the
mind of God. We believe in his pres
ence and agenoy among us. He is gov
ernor among nations. But we believe
this to be the time for Christian pa
triots to follow the example of our
forefathers in the earlier crisis which
have confronted us, and pray unitedly
to him that keepeth ' covenant and
meroy for them that love him and keep
his commandments, that he would visit
us with especial grace
"We therefore affectionately invite
and earnestly urge our Christian fel-low-citizenB
throughout the length and
breadth of our land, irrespective of de
nominational or political affiliations,
to join with us in observing Thursday,
October 8, as a day of fasting, confes
sion, and prayer to Almighty God that
he will allay passion and restrain evil
amng us; that he will strengthen our
faith and inspire hope; that he will
impart wisdom, and bestow patience,
and that he will forgive our iniquities

THE TRADE REVIEW

Portland, Or., Sept. 23.
While the conservative investor lmn

orts to put prioes on a. higher plane,
and to infuse new life into speculative
transactions. These efforts have mi i
with partial sucoesss. Two very seri.
ous obstacles have been constantly in
the way of success. ' First, the genera I
publio, frightened by the cry of harr
times, fights shy of all forms of trad
ing. Seoond, tle overproduction o(
the whole agricultural world has caused
a depression whioh has been most dis
couraging to those who attempt specu
lation only on the buying side. But th
local trade has made a good fight.
Prioes have gone lower and lower until
bear plungers found themselves at-i
tempting the impossible in forcing far.
ther declines. ; There has been a lonrj
period of narrow markets at olose tn
the lowest prioes ever recorded on thn ,
Chioago exchange. The past wsek
brought the first upheaval in any quar
ter. Natural conditions have favored
buyeiB to an extent that attention has
been withdrawn - from the . political
field. There has" been fresh vigor in
the pits by reason of the return , of
many speculative leaders from . abroad
and from the summer resorts. TheHe
have taken hold with more confidence
than those who have been through the
tiresome trade of the summer months.
But the changes in the routine news
and statistics, the all important-law a
of supply and demand have favored
buyers "and helped prices. The latest
government estimate on the crop totals
places wheat, corn, and oats at muob
lower figures than established by popu
lar judgment. While the trade dis
credited the totals' in a way the ' mar
kets were relieved beoause the official
exhibit was not excessive. The Wash
ington report came when markets were
making headway . and the influence
was a negative one it simply was not
bearish and depressing. The advances
soored are enoouraging. Wheat shows
improvement of 5 oents from extreme
low point. ' i
The export sales, at the seaboard have
been heavy. Chicago has been on an
export basis. St. Louis, in the oentei
of the winter wheat belt, has been
kept busy supplying a very urgent mill
ing demand from the interior, and re
ceipts at that point have fallen off
sharply. ' '
There are evidences that New York
carriers are putting big money into
wheat in the Northwest and that a
great volume will be taken to the sea
port for carrying profits and to meet
any emergency abroad during the long
term when lake navigation is impossi
ble. This tends largely to offset the
very heavy receipts at Minneapolis and
Dulutb, which are largely the result oi
tight money. Country elevators will
not carry the farmers' grain this win
ter. The forwarding -of this great
volume of grain to terminal market
will increase the" visible supply, but
the grain will be in shape for an urg
ent foreign demand, whioh European
trouble may foroe at any time.
Exports of wheat, flour inoluded as
wheat, from both coasts of the United
States last week amounted to 8,566,-
326 bushels, against 8,709,000 bushels
the previous week, and as compared
with 2,588,000 bushels two years ago,
and 4,727,000 in the like week of 1893.
