PRICES TO BE LOWER.
Jobbers Say Flr.ancal Disturbance Will
Work For Lcwsr Food Costa.
Chlciso , 111. , Oct 31. That the proa-
-cnt disturbed fincclrl condition may
tiring in its \\nko a general and sub
stantial reduction In the cost of living
was the talk yesterday among Jobbers ,
wholesalers nrJ ictnllcrs of meats ,
eggs nnd ether food products.
Some of them expressed the belief
tiiat n reduction cf 10 per cent In the
retail price cf meats mry be made In
n few days , should the present money
stringency continue. If the present
comparatively mid weather continues ,
there Is sure to be fi diop In the price
f bcth fresh pnd ccld storage eggs.
Nenny 1 000,000 cases of eggs are In
cold utorpgo in Chlcngc. For several
weeks fresh eggs have sold nt 27 cents
n dozen retail , and the "cooled" vari
ety at 23 cents. Hca\y receipts of
fresh csgs from the south may cause
a market reduction in the price of both
Tnrletles In a few days.
In South Water street many dealers
were quoting the best creamery butter
at 20 cents a pound wholesale. This
probably will cause a reduction in the
retail price cf from 35 cents to 30 and
31 cents a pound.
While the retail price of beef and
other packing house products remain
ed substantially the same , hope was
held out that a reduction by the pack
ers Is at hand. There was a single
exception In pork , which advanced In
price. This was attributed to light

HAY'CAR CASE IS APPEALED
Northwestern Takes Up Suit of Frank
Dabney of Stuart ,
Lincoln , Oct. 31. The Northwestern
railroad has appealed to the supreme
court the case brought by Frank Dab
ney of Stuart before Judge Westover ,
aeMng for a mandamus to compel the
road to furnish him ftve cars a day
for ten days for the shipment of hay
The mandamus was granted by Judge
Westover. Judge Letton has allowed
a supersedeas , the bund being ; fixed
at $2,600 and signed by IU W. McOtn-
nis , Northwestern agent at Lincoln.
, The railroad claims it IB not in the
Jurisdiction of the district court to
mandamus a railroad in this way , but
that the duty devolves upon the rail
road commission , and the district
court may bo called Into the CABS
when an order of the commission Is
n controversy. The case will , there
fore , bring up for determination the
authority of these two departments of
the state government.
Reports reaching the state railway
commission Indicate that the Burling
ton railroad Is refuslpg checku In
payment of freight. A large shipment
of cattle at Sargent , with $1,800
freight charges , is being held in tha
yards because currency cannot be
cured to pay the charges , although a
certified check has been tendered.
Tha railway commission will take tha
matter under consideration.

CABLE AN OFFER OF $15,000,000 IN
STOCKS STRONGER IN EAST
Confidence In New York Continued to
be Rapidly Restored and Stocks on
the Exchange Were Stronger Than
at Any Time Within the Week.
Now York , Oct. 31. Confidence con
tinued today to be rapidly restored In
the iinaucial situation.
Paris banks today cabled an offer
of fifteen millions of dollars In gold ,
f It Is needed.
All stocks on the exchange ruled
stronger today than at any time dur-
ng the past week.
New York , Oct. 31. The financial
situation U HI near normal that there
are no new fcatureb of Importance.
It was statoil by bunkers that the calls
for money from the neighborhood of
New York nnd the entire east ap
pear to be putcllciilly satisfied , as such
calls for curicncy of an urgent char
acter as wcie being received cnma
from points west ot the Mississippi.
these calls are being mot as fast as
conditions permit. Mr. Williams , the
new state superintendent of banking ,
gathered up most of the cash In the
suspended banks and deposited It
with going Institutions , thereby odd-
Ing several millions to the funds
available in the market. The debit
balances against banks at the clearing
house were smaller than usual under
normal conditions , all such balances
aggregating only n little more than
$9,000,000. One of the points at which
the most pressure for money Is ex
pected Is at Now Orleans , In order
to finance the movement of the cotton
Public Buying Stocks.
One of tno most Interesting devel
opments in the situation Is the large
amount of the purchases of securities
m small lots for investment. Most of
the large private banking houses
which sell blocks and bonds have been
keeping the clerical force at work
overtime executing such orders and
attending to the transfer of titles to
the securities on the books of the cor
poration by whlclf they are Issued.
This is one of the decisive marks of
investment buying. It Is estimated
by food Judges that there are 400,000
more ruiuioa of stockholders on the
books of the railway and industrial
corporations than was the case a year
Ago. A single large firm reports sales
between $500,000 and $750,000 per
day. Another firm states that Its wires
to outlying places are crowded with
small orders , directing the transfers
of the securities to the names of new
owners , whllo still another firm de
clares that there has not been a
movement of this kind of such vol
ume for twenty years.
Cables Not Disquieting.
The cables from Europe were not
disquieting to those familiar with
the situation there. It Is generally ex
pected that the Bank of England's dis
count rate will be advanced today ,
but this will be too late to affect en
gagements of jjold already made for
the United States.
The disposition In Paris to aid the
London market by loan on sterling
bills Is regarded as an Indication that
the French bank Is well fortified and
Is willing to pursue under Governor
Pallaln the generous policy which hns
usually characterized Its action In
emergencies. The absence of any fail
ures in New York of any importance ,
except that of Kouler Jb Co. , a pri
vate banking firm , and the offer of
rail money at low rates wore toe oth
er favorable symptoms of the situa
