New York, Dec. 20. K. r. Dun &

collections, and (.':,) less satisfactory con
ditions in some largo branches of Indus

to business unuettakinirs, often uncon
sciously, oy the uncertainty of finan

any other cau'. Thoush the rate

and in many ea-fS settlenints can iw

In all quarters th'-re Js hope thst after

c:lue greater shrinl'ir of credit
and curtallmen' of purchase Foreign
influenT? are not now disturbing. Ex
port? of products for the two weeks of
December from New York show a gain
of per cent, over iat ytar and the to
tal of Iat Dei-ember w.-i- hardly ever
surpassed. Though import? continue
heavy they are greatly rvvd:ul by the
export n pre-ent. Export of cot
ton thus far this mouth exceed last year
and alo of provisions, but there is a
heavy decrease in grain caused by the
speculative prfe? iicir
Ti-H'ie at tho south is fair, a most
points reporting; healthy at NewOrlean
with larger cotton receipts; dull at Mem
phi?, but more confident at Little Bock;
slightly improved at Montgomery and
good at Nashville; less confident at Jack
sonville, ind at Atlanta the accumula
tions of cotton are large.
Money is very close at all points, the
banks helping customers as far as they
can. but collections are not up to the av
erage. Across the Mississippi, St. Louis has
colder weather favoring all lines of
trade, but at Kansas City the holiday
trade is below the average. At Denver
tho trade is only fair. At Salt Lake it is
improving some. At Omaha it is fair.
At Minneapolis it is steady for lumber
and improving in prices for flour, and at
St. Taul confidence is retnrninc. Col
lections in this region are onlv fair.
At Chicago the receipts of wheat and
wool are a third below last year's; of
hides larger and of other products about
tho same. The sales of merchandise
exceed last year's. Money is firm and
regular, business is supplied and there is
confidence in the immediate future. At
Mijwaukee and Detroit the trade is good.
Xt Cleveland it is fair and at Cincinnati
very quiet in wholesale lino. Pitts
burg reports moro confidence in tho
trade in manufactured iron and in glass
it Is slower and Bessimer booms are
iowcr. The banks are less apprehen
sive but cautious.
Confidence improves at Ioton.
Though money is easier at Philadelphia,
the noteworthy feature is the general
difficulty of collections, especially in
iron, paints, oils, jewelry and glasf.
Trade is fair in all these line and glass
plates arc stiffcr, but lower price are
expected in wool, and the demand for
tobacco is light.
The anthracite coal trade i demoral
ized, and restrictions of the output do
not restrict. A general break-up of the
..ffibinc is being apprehended. Iron
shows no improvement at Philadelphia
or here. The demand for finished pro
ducts generally Js slack and the closing
of more furnaee's is likely to be forced.
Copper is unsettled, but tin is a shade
stronger at 20.55 cents and lead at 4.10.
The dry goods trade feels the influence
of recent failures and o the strincen'j
in commercial loans.
In th speculative markets the ten
dency has generally been downward,
though wheat is 1J cents higher than a
week ago in spite of the phenomenaliy
largo exports and the accumulating
Corn is 2K cen-s lower; pork 75 cents
per barrel; hogs 45 cents per 100 pound,
and oil a fraction lower. Cotton and
coffee are unchanged for the week.
It is noteworthy that the speculative
markets arc all hesitating in the feeling
that monetary legislation may indefi
nitely alter the situation. Hence the
largely increased immediate supplies of
money by the Imports of gold, and
treasury disbursements have less effect
than might be expected.
The business failures occurring
throughout the country during the last
seven days number 404 as compared with
374 last week. For the corresponding
week of last year the fisures were 342.

Samnier Climate In North Dakota.
Dickinson, N. D.. Dec. 20. The
weather for the past month In this
whole section has been the finest ever
experienced by the oldest settler. The
sun has shone with excessive brightness
and heat. One only knows that it is ap
proaching winter by the lack of vegeta
tion and foliage. To-day numbers of
children can be seen running around
bare-footed and without hats and coat,
not on account of poverty, but because
they arc more comfortable. At railway
headquarters the thermometer registered
50 degree above zero at noon. There
are no signs of a change.

Hitherto San Salvador has been spas
modically represented at Wasliincton by
special envoy, but from now on he wiil
have a legation at our capital. Oh.
Guiro was at tho head of San Salvador's
army during the late Central American
outbreaks. Speaking through an inter
preter, he said:
The chief matter that t bbnll bring before
Secretary Blaine will be the informal ioa
that San SaHador is extremely an.iou? to
market bcr valuable products in the line of
indigo, coffee, suzar, balsam. peruvU and
mabozany in the United states, and that if
the United States will furnish a certain -nra,
the San Salvador government will adanc
a like amount to be used as a subsidy for a
line of suaniers to ply between our ports
and the United States. This 19 the pet plan
of our president, Grat Pu Carlos Eze'a All
of the Central American states have sizned
treaties of peace, but so far the union of
states has not been realized, and there
are no Immediate hopes of an amalgama
tion. Costa Elca, Nicaragua and Guate
mala are Insurmountable objects in the
path of peaceful union. The country of
tfan Salvador is rich, good school abound
and the people are more prosperous and
refined than tboseof theneizhborinz state-,
bence a union is undesirable. Do not think
me bombastic, but time will prove my as
sertions. San Salvador is the rising United

IMPROPER USE OF A FRANK
This Is the Charg Democrats Urlnf
Acatnst Attorney-Gent ral Miller.
iNDiANAroi is, Dec IS. An effort i
being made to have the federal grant
jury, now In session, indict W. If. II
Miller, attorney.gcnetal of th" fnitec
State. The charge brought aga;nt thi
attorney-general is that he scut thrnugt
the roailsa private Jetterover his oflieia
frank. Last summer. It is alleged. th
attorney-general wrote a private lette:
to .T. F. Kobinson. of this 1 ity. upon r.o
litieal matters. The letter was ehei
publicity by the recipient at the time.
Tho democratic county committee got
possession of the letter and used it a- a
campaign document at the lat 1 lec
tion. Now the charge is made that tin- en
velope in which that lettvr was mailed
did not bear a postage stamp. The law
provides that any public officer who
hall use a "franked'' official envelope
or any other than official bu-ine?s shall
be fined 5300. Those who want Mr. Mil
ler indicted say this letter was a private
one, was so marked, and that t! attorney-general
clearly violated the -.w h;
sending the epistle under his frank.
The grand jury has b"en notified of
the alleged violation Of- the law and will
probably hear the witnesses won.

LixtdLX, Neb., Dec: 17. 6Ver a tbo'ii-'
sand representatives from the various
alliances of the state gathered in JJohan
an's hall at 11 o'clock yesterday to trans
act the business incident to the regular
tearly session of the state Farmers" alli
unce. Each alliance is entitled to but
one repp-sen tdthe and onlv a little more
thau half of the organizations are rerjre-
scnted. The session is being held in se-
crct. No persons are admitted except
such as can present yellow cards or crc
, dential entitling them to such.
1 The meeting was presided over by J,
' H. Powers wlilie 6. M. Thompson occu
, pied the secretary's table. Tho time j
was mainly occupied in getting reddy
j for work and listening to a siieech by tho '
j president, Mr. Powers. Adjournment
' was then taken until 2 o'clock. j
The entire afternoon session wa do-!
voted to the consideration of tho condi
tion of the farmers in the western part
of the state who are suffering from a
fallureof crop. Numerous reports were
, read in regard to the poverty of some of
A motion was made that the 5,000 in
the treasury of the alliance be sent to
the destitute farmers as a Christmas
present. Many delegates insisted
that this would be only a drop in
the bucket and urged that it would
be better to wait until the legislature
meets and appropriates 5150,000 for the
benefit of the needy farmers. It was
finally urged that the 55.000 be sent now
and that the 5150,000 appropriation be
made as well.
At 5:30 p. in. the convention adjourned
without having taken any definite action '
in regard to the matter.
There have been so many resolutions
presented and there is so much busiuess
to be transacted that tho session will
' probably last two or three days longer.
. A committee on resolutions has been ap-
pointed and the great mas of whereases
I and resolvcds have been presented to it
Before adjournment it was deemed ad
visable by some to convene at 7:30 a. m.,
but this met with such opposition that
the hour of 6 a- m.. was finally agreed
Lincoln. Dec. 15. The second day's
session of the State Farmers' alliance
was stormier than the first. These ses-
1 sions are held in secret and detailed re-
ports are impossible to obtain, and noth
ing can be learned except from leaky
', members. The first work of the day was
the election of officers. These were as
follows: President. John H. Powers, of
Hitchcock county, tho independentclaim
ant for the office of governor; vice presi
dent, II. G. Stewart, of Box Butte county,
who is contesting the election of E. L.
Death, republican, from the Fifty-third
representative district; secretary and
treasurer, J. M. Thompson, of Lancas
ter county; executive committee, Jay
1 Burrows, Lancaster; Allen Root, Doug
las: B. F. Allen. Cass county; C.W. Beal,
Custer county; H. II. McGaw, Adams. It
is understood that four of this committee
aro anti-Burrows men.
The biggest sensation took place in '
the afternoon, when ex-Senator Yan-
' Wyck offered a resolution expressing the
sense of the alliance to be that green
backs and silver should be made a legal
tender for all debts, public or private,
whether the contract provided for their
payment in gold or not. He made a
number of attempts to get the floor be
fore President Powers would recognize
him, and onlv succeeded by making so
much noise that all other business came
to a standstill. During this timo Pros
dent Powers ordered him to sit down c
number of times and finally ordered the
sergeant-at-arms to seat him or put him
oc t of the room. The officer approached
' the ex-senator, when he defied him to
lay a hand on him. declaring that he
would fight for his rights as an Ameri
can citizen the same as he had fought
for lone years in defense of his country.
It is reported that President Powers
then told the belligerent ex-senator that
he would send for the police.
YanWyck told him to send for tho
police if he wanted t. but he should
treat them the same as he had treated
the scrgeant-at-arms. He knew his '
rights as an American citizen and would
maintain them. The resolution wa
seconded and then discussed at some.
length, and finally was adopted with a

Series of Crime.
CnirrrwA Fali3. Wis., Dec. 16. The
village of Cadott. ten rnile east of here,
is terribly excited over what is no doubt
a murder and suicide. Early Sunday
morning, Peter St. George, of that town,
gave the alarm that his wife was miss
iug; that she had disappeared durinc the
night, and that he feared something had
befallen her. Search was instituted, and
tbe missing woman found dend in the
woodshed, hanging by tbe neck. Con
tusions and wounds about the woman's
face and head indicated foul play and
tho husband was at once sus
pected. Some of the neighbors
even went so far a to accuse him of tho
infamous crime. Officers watched St.
Georgo during the whole day and as hour
by hour went by they became more con
vinced that he was the murderer, but
desisted from arresting him until the
verdict of thecoroncr's jury was obtained
on the body of Mrs. St. George. This
was reached at about 1 o'clock, and was
claimed that the death of Mrs. St.
George wa foul murder by unknown
hands. The officers forced their way
to St. George's room in the -econd tory
of a low cottage, here he had spent
most of the day. only to be horrified by
a suicide. His thioat wa cut from ear
to ear, and deatii must have been instan
taneous Domestic troubles are as
signed as the cause for the crime.
