TRADE UNUSUALLY CRISK.
IJi!hcm Continue Actlro Without
Sign of Ucnctlon.
Youk, Aug. 12 R. G. Dun t
Co.'s Weekly Bovlew of Trade says:
Business continues unusually nctlvo
for midsummer, and, though thero Is
no pcrccptiblo relaxation, thero aro no
signs of reaction. The one change of
great importance which the past week
has brought Is eminently helpful the
amicable settlement between coal
miners nnd employers In Western
Pennsylvania, Ohio nnd Indiana. It
is said that about 100,000 men will havo
their wages increased after October 5
by this adjustment, and, while tho en
largement of purchasing power Is of
consequence, it eccms even more im
portant that a chronic causo of con
troversy has been removed by thn new
agreement as to company stores.
There is no Important change In crop
prospects, and nt this time no news is
eminently good news.
Speculation has been more success
ful in cotton than in any other pro
duct during tho past week, and has
lifted the price an eighth. Wheat has
declined a fraction, with very scanty
transactions, tho extremely small
western receipts influencing tho mar
ket for tho present moro than tho re
stricted exports. Tho concerted with
holding of wheat by western farmers,
If continued, will doubtless affect tho
price in tho end, but it has
already stopped Atlantic ex
ports almost entirely, the amount,
flour included, having been only 753,330
bushels for tho past week, against
2,080,430 bushels for tho same week
last year, and when foreign markets
havo supplied tholr needs from other
quarters, the Western farmers may
find reason to regret that they did not
ship their wheat at the original time.
Corn tends to lowcr.priccs, with more
encouraging prospects, and tho ex
pectation of a heavy corn crop affects
prices ot provision s, as might be ex
pected. Sales of wool aro not ns much in
flated by speculation as they were dur
ing the iirst half of July, but they still
considerably exceed the actual con
I sumption in me raanuiacuire, amount,-
sumption in tho manufacture, amount-
Some staple cotton goods have again
advanced in price, and the market is
Unusually strong for tho season,
OLNEY, FOR THE BENCH.

much speculation as to who will be
President Cleveland's choice for the
United States supremo court bench to
succeed tho lato Justice Jackson, but
beyond the mention of available names
thero is littlo of a definite nature this
sarly. - '
There aro persons, however, whoso

the great questions that havo arisen
during tho last two years, Whether
Mr. Olney's residence In Massachu

not known, but it is the opinion of
many well informed, persons hero that
but for this objection ho would 6urely

FOR SILVER AT 1 6 TO 1.

Missouri Democracy has deolarod with
out equivocation for tho free and un
limited colnniro of silver at the ratio of
10 to 1. Thu strongest resolutions
looking to that end wero parsed by tho
statu convention amid a storm of
cheers, and practically without adls
senting voice. Further yet, tho con
vention, by an overwhelming major
ity, voted to reorganize tho state com
mittee, and nineteen new members
have been added to it, all considered
to be heart and soul for tho
while metal. Tho fifteen old
members whom, whether right
ly or wrongly tho silver men.
hud considered committed to tho sound
liigne doctrine, 13 to 2, now finds
itself purely an ornamental appen
dage to a soaring majority. Thero
aro rumors that possibly thirteen of "
tho old commltteo will declino to
servo longer, but It Is scarcely likely
that they will resign, as that action,
would merely fix tho silver uien still
more firmly in the saddle. In splto of
these revolutionary proceedings tho
work of the convention has been char
acterized by most remarkable har
mony. If tho convention faithfully
represents the Democratic party of
tho state, then bejoml question "5 per
cent of tho party aro out and out silver
Tho convention began Its business
with "Silver Dick" Bland nt tho helm.
The organization was perfected with
out friction and silver resolutions wero
drawn and adopted and tho rcorgani-
zatiou of tho state central committee
was decided upon by a vote of -103 to
U!l. The plan of reorganization ugrccd
upon was that suggested by the con
servatives, which called for tho doub
ling of tuo old committee, only four
additional committeemen elected from
the stato at largo by tho convention
wore added. This makes tho new com
mittee certainly for silver, but as if
this were not enough, the convention
went further and so bound tho new
central organization by resolutions ns
to the conventions to bo held next
i ear. that even were it ns hostile as
