enough to cross the Atlantic at a

very scandalous condition ol alfairn re
specting examination of baggage of arriving
passengers and the criminal payment ut

plorable condition , then and for a long time
existing , has not yet beeu thoroughly re'
formed , although them bus teen , I bopu ,
somewhat of an improvement. " lay
The treasury department has Issued a circu
tu collectors and other customs officers ,

riving ono year ( instead of six months ) before
after the owner , will be reported to the
secretary ' for hla action. Thli change baa
been made in view of the fact that immi
grants frequently leave their tfleets abroad
until they have secured employment , which
unnally requires a period of greater than six if
months , :
The democrats ore much disturbed here
over a report that the postmaster general is
about to lisue an order forbidding all connect-

CHICAGO , Sept. 21. The cattle trndo was
elow and prices rather easier on useful and
medium natives. In lomo instances saloa
were lOo lower tbnn offeicd yesterday. 1'rimo
fint-class nativoi wore scaroo and sold eqaally
as high ns yesterday. First-class native
butchoro stock made a shade more money.
Texan a were selling equally as well ai yostor-
day. Northwestern rangers , when they would
just exactly suit , sold fully as high as any
lime this week , but when below the standard
wanted for shop and refrigerator
trade they had to go Into the feeding class ,
and then sell for whatever they would bring.
Stacker and feeder trade remains in a bad
way , Receipt * are light , and there is no de
mand worth noting. Distillery feeders are
picking out such as will suit from north
western rangers , preferring that elms to na
tives , Country buyers are yet afraid of
Texas fever , hence they are not buying to any
; rcat < extent. Tha supply of stock calves
was about equal to the domat.d , Prices re
main steady at the advance noted yesterday.

CHICAGO , Sept. 24 , A weaker feeling suc-
eeded In the wheat market to-day and daring
the session prices declined to a point 3o under
the highest price ] of yesterday. The feeling
woa strong at tba opening , owing to the show *
Ing of a decrease of 1,200,000 bn in the amount
wheat afloat destined for England and the
continent. Under the influence of this showIng -
Ing the November delivery advanced to 87 o ,

which was the inside trading price for the
day. There was an advance of &o , and the
market closed on the regular board fie under
peeterday , One of the causes assigned for
decline was that Minneapolis millers hod
reduced their prices 2a on the ground that
recent advance had brought out free
ihlpments from farmers' hands. At the after-
aoon session the feeling was a little firmer ,
ind the latest trading prices wore | a under
bo8Q of yesterday.
Corn was only moderately active , but was
jlven eomawhat more of support than was ex-
euded to wheat , and ranged strong at an ad
vance of g@ic. A few buying orders were
eceived while receipts were not very hsavy.
Clio near options eased off towards the close ,
closed lower.
Oats quiet and steady at about yesterday's
Meia pork fell off 12jc at the opening , but
ecovered and closed moderately firm.
Lard ruled somewhat easier.
