CniCAW ) , May 14. [ Special Teilearam to
the UKK.JVlwat \ opened llrm nt yesterday's
prices , with the crowd e.iuer buyers. The
market sold otf vciy slightly , but started up
on Indications of clique buying. Many of
the scalpels who had sold on the bulge yes
terday alter noon uamo Into the marl.ct , and
finding that olfurlngscni limited ,
began bidding for the whi-at
they wanted. This element took
the market away from the clique and put
Juno UP to WiJ c , when the demands of the
shuitswcrosatlsllud. The ni.ukut , left to
Itself , worked otf , Juno receding to bo'fc ,
July touching 85 | c , nr.d August SJ c. Here
again clique houses appeared as buyers , and
as thu session drew towards acloso the music
of the band became louder and the tune live
lier. About ten mlnutos huforo the bull
tappodJuno touched B7c. There It stuck
tremulously to the ( Inlsh , July rcr.titu' nt
W c , August atb-l c nnel .September nt b'l'fc. '
Brokers had orders to close ; the market at yc ,
and they did It. They did not M.ive to buy a
great quantity of grain to do It , either.
Transaction-tin the pit were bulow the average -
ago In aggregate , the market very narrow.
Loenl scalpers and | these who can have In
stantaneous connection with tlio exchange ,
try to tall onto the clique , but the public dues
not bet'in to have availed Itself generally of
the clique "yes , " so generously and continu
ously put out. Commission houses report a
light run on outside oreleis. It Is said , how-
civur , that the bucket shops are great sutlVrcis ,
which would Indicate ) that the multitude ot
little fcllouH had caught on and vtere passen
gers on the clique trnln.
Corn waa niraln weak and lower , especially
the Juno option. The-ro was less chancing
eve > r to day , or , In otlu-r words , less buying
of .luno and Bellini : of July , which accounted
for the conspicuous weakness In tlio former
month , and it sold "n spilt" lowur than on
Inst break , when the Insldn Ilgurcd on the
jrop , up to that time , \\i-ro touched. Tlio
principal feature of to-elny'h trade wns the
very gennral nnd lionvy uiuoaillnirs by longs.
Dlscouiacud holders dumped lanse 'quanti
ties , and although the bhrlnkt-nige In values
occasioned by free olforlngs were not severe ,
It was a heavy slugging market from thee
o ) > cnlng to the close. Initial trades In Juno
were at 3U' ' { nnd In July nt4lc. or % ct under
yesterday's closing. Juno .slutfed otf to 4 %
fejIWc , and closed at oUc straight , and July
rested nt 40c , nfter touching -loJic. May
closed nt It ; under Juno and Aucust ut about lie
premium. Thu actual decline in the leading
futures was KQ c. Larger receipts are
predicted for next week , Monday'srun being
estimated ut 175 cars. 1'ort clearings yeste'r-
ilay from two ports wore IW.OUO bushels , and
foreign maikcts were quoted quiet and
steady. To-day's chimera bv lake shippers
were for 14flXW ( biibhols. Oats wt-re falily
active nnd prices weakened % c tor the piln-
clpal trading months. Finn weather , good
receipts , tree speculation oIlerliiKS and tUo
depression of corn , all helped to weaken the
market. Fluctuations were nairow , June
closing at UT c and July at 'JS' MSK J nst
at the clo- 'JXX ) , ( ) bushels were sold tor
August at i.0c.
In the ; provision pit yesterday's Interest
was barely maintaliu-d. The market opened
with a promise ot moie actlvn trading , but
on the appearance of a weaker and inoru
bearish tooling than wns exacted , traders
bccamo comparatively conservative , hence
to-day's business , all told , was somewhat
unsatisfactory nnd without special teatuie ,
From the start the bear aiilo was le ariled
with the greatest favor , and at the close larO
stood at 7k@10c and bhort ribs lOQl'Jifc under
dor Iitst ulght's linnl quotations. The lion I
prices reported were obtained on open Ins
transactions Speculation conlincd tc
lard and short ribs and to the- usual months-
June , July and August. Pork wns held al
5-1 lor May and June. The cash prodncl
sold slowly , though buyers wore evidently
making moie inquiries and showed more
disposition to take hold. Lard .sold uiodcr
ately lor export. Cash meats were held al
about yesterday's prices.

to the UKE.I STOCKS. The New Vorl
stock nmiXct was rather more narrow to-da ;
than It has bi > on for some tl'jio , but ther
was no material breaK In prices. Tim mos
neusatlonal move of the day was In Maul
toba , which advanced 3 per cent on hU buy
ing orders from the west. It was stated tha
the stockholders would have the right some
time this year to eubscrlbo for now stock 01
tha l.iWO miles of road which the Manltob ,
U building. Granger stocks were all von
quiet and Rteady. notwithstanding ratne
heavy selling to realize. A good man ;
traders were outot town attending the races
aud this hail a tendency to detract from the
lutoreU'vvhfch traders usually take lu tin
market. A story was current that a bie bul
deal had been started In Norfolk .t Western
Ixiudou operators bolnc credited wltl
having designs of some Kind on the road
Tbe result was a Jump of 1 per cent In tin
Block. The txinlc statement , showing a de
crease of only 8331,000 In the reserve , wa
regarded as favorable. At least It was no
f construed as unfavorable enough to eel
stocks on. London prices were all a shadi
up nnd arbltrago houses reported a tali
mount of buylnc for- foreign account
"Western l/nlon and the Vanderbllts wen
jJyrYU u iiavtiyu , but there ww no
to soil these stocks. The feature of the after
noon was a sharp bulge In Norfolk A West
ern and a quick rally lu cotton iced oil cor-
tlllcatets. The report was on the street that
Insiders In the Cotton Seed Oil company had
a statement showing over 0 per cent earned
on certificates aud that 3 # per cent In divi
dends would bo paid In July. The market
closed very strong at about the opening
prices. The total sales vvere'JOJ.OOO shares.

do occur are the closing assemblies of
club organizations , anil for the most part
seem stale and unprofitable. Kven in the
matrimonial market a serious depression
is felt , perhaps because May is not fa

for connubial ventures. Juno is the choice

St. James Buelgot : "The word ton is
quite abolished. Everything that is fash
ionable is now called the nick. " So
wrote Lord Robert Seymour in January ,
1783 , in the diary , extracts from which
appear in the April number of Murray's
Magazine , and it is a contribution
towards the history of slang terms us ap
plied to the movements of tashion which
should bo noted by those interested in
tha trivialties of language. The "buck
and bloods" of " "
"Ruddygorc , similarly
recall the many now departed names
given to these who follow the fashion
only too closely. Macaroni , beau , dandy ,
fop , coxcomb , swell , masher , dude ,
comirchic and suporchic are all of the
same school.
In two of Lord Heaconsfield's novels
the change in the use of such names
it clearly shown. "Dandy bus been
voted vulirar.and bean is now the word , "
is remarked in "J'he Young Duke , " pub
lished in 1823 , while in "Lothair , " piycn
to the world in 1870 , there is a reference
to is cohsiiCered "the high mode for
a real swell.lVii/rheso historical develop
ments of oollocmial language are of in
terest to any vylro attempt to study con-
tenioorary li oas : displayed in contempo
rary literature. "Nick.1 as an epithet ,
has completely Uisappeared ; "chic" has
gone in the sjuue direction , and before
long perhapevfui society journals will
awake to tliivfurjt that it has become mo
notonous to jiudjiulins , ballsand drc. ses
alike , and always described as "smart. "
A May Kestlval.
St. Catherine's academy was the scene
of much bustlohi { > il merriment Tl tirsday.
It was agala'day among the pupils , who
were treated tq a May festival. The be
ginning of the Jfestivitics was a march of
the pupils through corridors , singing the
litany. Then a hymn was sung. The
large hall on the second lloor was elabo
rately decorated , and a throne was
erected to the statue of the Virgin which
was crowned by the May queen , MKs
Clara Creighton. The bishop then
crowned the May and fairy queens , Clara
Creighton and Miss Clara Van Camp.
The prettiest feature ot the day was the
May polo dance by twenty-four children ,
after winch they enjoyed unlimited re
freshments. The bishop and eight clergy
were present , also the parents ol the
queens and the former pupils of the

A Boy Detective.
A boyish fellow , giving his name as C
A. Gray , was lodged at the jail as a vag
rant. He hud not a nirklo , his chief pot
sonal effects being a star bearing th
magical words , "private detective , " i
small revolver and a notebook. lie explained
plained that he had joined an associatioi
m Cincinnati. He had received an invi
tation to join , anel was assured that hi
could get a living and a name easily. H (
had paid $5 to become a member nm
had his certificate with him , in the fron
part of the notebook wcro blank page
for recording such arrests as bo mlgh
make. Thus tar there had been no en
tries in the book , lie had found the lif
of adotectivo rather rocky. Ho ha
come across one sheriff who promised t
give him $100 if he would find a cortai
man , but he hadn't found him yet. Th
foolish fellow , who is only one of man
who have been duffed this way , was al
lowed to go free , and given some whole
some advice about returning to his wor
on the turra , stopping the reading of lias
novels , sell his gun and buy a iliove !

upon every seductive circular.
1 he Park Concert.
Last evening n most enjoyable concci
was given in Bayhss park , it Le'.ng a com
plimentary tendered the public by th
enterprising firm of Odell Bros. & Cc
Dalby's fifth regiment band furmshc
the music. This band is a comparativel
young organization , but tin lor the load
crship of Prof. Dalby has developed ray
idly , luul promibus to be ono of the fine :
organisations in the stato. Among th
most choice numbers on the urogramm
were these of Prof. Dalby's own compos
tion. Ho is a true artist , ami Counc
Blull's may well take pride in havin ;
such a giftcel resident , whose band musii
is played by the bo-t musical organixa
tions in this country , and oven in th
lands beyond the ocean. It is mete tha
buch a musician should bo heartily er
couragett to remain hero , and yet it i
not in pursuance of this policy that th
statement is made that the concert give
by his band last evening was an oxtraoi
dinanly line ono. He and his organ/ ! ;
lion merit sucli praise. The new ban
has hail little time to play together an
yet , n few , not knowing this fact woul
have illustrated it by their renditions las
evening. Tlio niusio was of a high ordei
much of it difficult , and it was give
charmingly. There was a largo crow- -
to hear it , and alt seemed tlolightcd , 1
