A game was played yesterday on the ol
ball grounds , between the Ratidallltes an
Mr. R. Shakoshafl's eloveu. The forme
winning the tosa , sent their opponents to th
bat. The ground being somewhat sodde
with the rain , runs did not come as freely i
might hare been wished , nevertheless , th
"Shakes1' managed to put tin the falrl
dceent score of 5 $ towards which the conlri
butlons of Messrs. Turdon and W. Robcrl
helped In no small decree. The Randalllte
began their Innings In first rate style , but bi
fore many runs had been made , a heav
shower of rain necessitated a break for shel
ter. When play was resumed the conditlo
of the ground was such as to preclude a
possibility of a finish , under pnythlng Ilk
favorable conditions. This being evident !
was decided to make the pamo a "draw.
This was done , but not before a "snak

The Demand For Money Good For Thl
Time of the Year ,
New York Exchange In Good Suppl ;
With Moderate Demand For *
elgn Ullln Dnll and Weak
nrlentenlng tTp ,
CincAao. August 27. ISpeclal Telegrar
to the IEK. | Bankers Generally report
good demand for money for this season o
the year , with a good supply of loanabli
funds on hand. There Is some little Inqulr ;
from board of trada operators who antlclpat
very considerable grain and hog pioducts 01
the 1st of September , but these demand , ar
not pressing and applications are readily a <
commodatcd. Shippers of eraln and prov
slons nave been moderate borrowers , malnl
In the way of sales of exchange or loans fc
short dates. There Is considerable mono ]
being forwarded to the Interior , chiefly ti
grain and live stock districts In the west an
outhwest , with a good proportion consigns
through commission houses. Lumber dealer
wore not Inclined to borrow to any extent a
trade Is dull and they are not enlarging the !
stocks much at present prices. Wholosal
merchants are offering a little more pape
and are readily accommodated. In other dc
partments of trade there Is some Inquiry fo
money but generally In the way of sma
loans. Hates of Interest are
little more favorable to borrower
of large sums , but no concessions to amoun
to anything can bn noted , ranging at 5@G pi
cent for call , and 4@C per cent for tlm
loans. Very tittle paper Is offered on th
street and rates of Interest show little chang
from those current at the bauks.
Advices from eastern financial centers In
dlcate a steady feeling in money , markt
rather Jinn , with rates of interest ranging a
OWn per cent European advices denote n
particular change In that quarter. Mone
apparently is In good supply and Interes
rates unchanged. Reports of the condltio :
of government banks In Europe show sllgh
reductions In specie. Now York exchang
was in good supply throughout the week
while the demand was moderate. The mat
kot was easy and sales were made at 50@80
discount per Sl.OJO between banks , an <
closed with sellers at 50c.
Forclen exchange has ruled dull and weal
throughout the week and sales were limited
Considerable gold was ordered from Europe
Shippers sixty days documentary bills 01
London sold at S4.7934.79 > i and closci
steady at S4.79.
The New York stock market was grcatl
unsettled during the week just closed am
prices ruled Irregular and lower for most o
the leading properties. There was consldei
able desire to realize on behalf of the/'longs' '
who have been carrying stocks on borrowei
funds , and this has been a decidedly weal
feature "Shorts" added their assistance t
the depression and enlarged their lines t
some extent during the early part of th
week. Trading was confined almost e *
cluslvely to Wall street , operators as outsld
parties wt-re not Inclined to trade in stock
to any extent The earnings of the leading
railroads still show an Increase over the coi
responding time last year , yet there is no
much disposition to purchase stocks , ospe
dally of railroads extending through section1
of country where the crops have sufferoi
from drought and bad weather. Foreign op
erators ate trading sparingly at present am
American securities are quiet and easy In thi
leading markets abroad. Sale ? on the Nav
York stock exchange for the week were onlj
1,605,000 shares. Up to last night there lim
boenhold 87,000 shares Western Union ; 30,00
shares Union Pacific ; 16,000 shares Omaha
44,000 shares Northwestern ; 353,000 Reading
and 135,000 Delaware , Lacluwanna & West
ern.As far as speculation Is concerned , the pro
( luci ) market has exhibited less life than dur
Inganv week previous , mainly In sympathj
With the general dullness which prevails Ir
all the lending produce markets In this conn
try and Europe. The adoption of tlio new
commKsion rules may tuivo curtailed bus !
ness slightly , but the general impression pre
vails that the absence of the leading operator !
from the principal markets , the imsottlei
feeling In stocks , and the conflicting wilt
statements regarding the yield of grain it
European countries , have combined In i
measure to check speculation operation :
temporarily at least. Operators evidently an
Inclined to hold off until a more settled state
of affairs exists. The shipping demand , how
ever.has been well maintained , and stocks o !
wheat , corn and provisions havi
been further reduced , while sup
piles of other small grain wen
enlarged owing to producers selling freely
The export movement In grain and provls
Ions continues on a liberal scale , and al
articles were widely distributed. Tin
weather was unpropitious forthreshlng oner
atlons in the northwest , but no serious re
Rults to grain have been reported. Advice
regarding the benefit to tne corn cropb ;
rains are unsatisfactory and conflicting , an !
apparently of little interest to trade. Ar
rivals of grain are moderately free at al
western markets , and live stock also hat
arrived In liberal numbers. The packing o
the west is progressing slowly and same
what below the returns of the correspoudlni
time last year.

The result of this competition will be
the formation of the division team , which
will compete with all the other division
teams for the formation of the army
team. At the conclusion of this compo'
tition that between the distinguished
marksmen of the army will take place.
This is for the accomodation of excellent
marksmen whoso skill and record as
such is to place them beyond eligibility
to the highest organization of marksmen ,
namely , the army team.
The medals arc now on exhibition in
Max Meyer's window , and will bo cn-
gravad by him when the contest deter
mines to whom they belong. The first
pmo is of massive gold , two inches in
diameter , with a mounted marksman in
bas relief ; the second prize is also oi
old , and three-quarter mchos in
§ iamcter , with a marksman bringmcr hla
rllle to his .shoulder : the third-class pri/e
is a silver modal , two inches in diameter ,
with the head of Minerva in alto-relievo.
The reverse of these is embossed with a
laurel wreath which will surround the
victor's name and the date of his victorv.
In connection with these is the skirmish

The VIMt to Lincoln.
LINCOLN , Neb. , August 27-fSp claI Tok
cram to the DKK.J When the oxcuislon trail
from Omaha yesterday reached Lincoln I
found a thousand people and carriage
enough to accommodate five or six hundroi
people waiting with open arms to receive th
national convention of Charities and Corroc
tlon. When , therefore , this largo concours
of people saw that not over one hundred del
egates comprised the excursion , they wen
excusable If a shadow of dlsappolntmen
crossed the united face of the reception com
mltteo. Lincoln had , In fact , made ojaborati
and careful preparations to receive the dclo
gallon , and many labored under the Impres
slon that even the preparation made wouU
bo insufficient , and as a result Lincoln wai
more than prepared to receive Its dtstln
finished visitors. The carriages , or as man ;
as were required , were at once taken for i
drive over tlio city , and a magnificent drlv
It was. with good streets free from dust , am
tlm brightest of skies overhead. It was tei
o'clock when the excursionist's reached th
city , and from that time on a long anc
pleasant drive was indulged in , in
eluding a visit to the Ilome for th
Friendless , the state penitentiary and tin
state hospital for the Insane all of whlcl
were carefully noted In all their working !
and were subjects of many favorable com
monts. Dinner was furnished by committee !
from the different churches at the Metropoll
tan rink and It was as great In amount as al
other preparations , three times the amoun
sufllclcnt for all requirements. The mem
bcrsottho convention of charities held i
short meeting In the afternoon and spceche1
were made by prominent citizens and bj
leaders in the numbers ot delegates. Con !
cral lirinkuriiolT delivered an address on thi
subject of convict contract labor In which he
said substantially :
The contract system of prison labor , as n
rule , Is more profitable to the state. In dollar' '
and cents , than any other , but on the other
hand , tor reformatory purposes , It Is more
objectionable than any othur.
No change from theconu.ict.system shoulo
be attempted until the conditions for an Ini
proved administration shall be establishes
by the abolition of partisan politics from tlu
prison and the organisation of the entire
management upon the basis of Integrity , ca
pacity and experience. Prison oil leers , like
army olllecrs , should have a special training
for their work , and promotion should comu
solely through honorable and meritorious
All the prisoners of a state should bo clas
sified and each class should bo assigned n
prison of its own. In a prison set apart for
those serving life sentences , which should
also include incorrlglblos and convicts oVei
thirty years of ago , the contract system verj
appropriately could be retained entire , foi
there is no reason why this class of prisoner ;
snould over be made a burden upon the tax
pajers. In the prison set apart for yount
men under thirty years of aeo and convicted
Dt their first offence the state account system ,
is a rule , would bu found the best for rnform-
itory uses , although the piece-price plan
would sometimes be found eqmilly available
and more profitable In dollnrs and cents , but
under either system educational and tech
nological training should have the largo i
: on * > lderatlon.
In reformatories for boys and girls the Idcr
} f pecuniary profit should not bo considered
tny more than in our public schools aud cello
lo cs , and the system of labor adopted stioult
t > o solely a part of an educational cunlculum
Legislators acting upon these principles
will be in the line of safe precedents , ami
will be more likely tlmn In any other way tr
obtain rosnlts satisfactory to themselves ami
useful to the state.
Ilnturn from Lincoln.
At 7:40 : last evening , the excursionists
: > f the Charity and Correction conference
returned. There was not an accident to
bo recorded on the whole tri but mmv
jrous incidents of good will and welcome
nt cvory place through which the train
passed. At Lincoln the reception was
right royal. The different state institu
tions were visited , lunches wore served ,
i dmnor given and in fact the guests oi
Lho capital city of Nebraska , yesterday
huvo not words at their disposal to ex
press their appreciation. At the Homo
of the Friendless Mrs. Manloy , the super'
intondent , made an address winch h
highly suokeu of by all the visitors. The
welcomes of Governor Thaycr , Mayor
Sawyer , Hon. T. M. Marquette were in
accordance with the well known ability
of these gentlemen. In the afternoon
session when General BrinkcrholT's paper
on convict labor was discussed the
delegates report a decided opposition tc
such employment. They said in inter
views last night that tlio unanimous
opinion was in favor of General Brinker
boll's views. In fact the convict laboi
system , thuy said , was the only objection
tlio.v had to the conduct of the Nebraska
penitentiary. As the excursionists
alighted the Second infantry baud played
EI few tunes. I'rof. GillesjMO , of the deal

Smith on Prison Contract Lmuor.
Nicholas Smith , of Jonesvillo , Wis. ,
iiombor of the state board which hns the
management of all the charitable , penal
mil reformatory institutions of the state ,
is attending tlio national conference oi
charities and correction , and on the
jucstion of contract labor in prison ,
lives the experience of his state as fol
lows : Wo have tried both the public ac-
jountand the contract system in Wlscon-
sin and the advantages are altogether on
Lhe side of the contract system. For in-
Jtanco , buforo the latter plan was
adopted , it required an annual appro-
priatkm of from $25,000 to $10,000 to pay
ill' the indebtedness of the prison. It
sost about $150 pur year for each con-
net's support per annum , ami during
the nine years when the public account
system was in vogue , the state lost in the
manufacturing department about $30,000.
but since the adoption of thu contract
jystom , the account stands differently ,
[ n the past nine years under that plan ,
the total earnings of the prison have uten
about ? ; i.V,000 , the labor being leased for
TO cents a duy per each convict. The
Wisconsin prison is now not only nearly
self-supporting , but the fact remains that
there never was a time in the history of
the state prison when it was in a butter
condition in every respect than can bo
named than it is now ; aud everyone who
is acquainted with the prison will cor
roborate the statement that the work of
reform , if reform is a possible thing in
prison , has beuii as progressive and hope
ful under the contract system as under
thu old system when the prison labor
was practically non-productive. Wo
liavo no trouble with the prisoners who
work for the contractors. The latter are
not allowed to ill-treat the prisoners in
my manner. The discipline of the
prisoners is entirely in the hands of the
prison authorities , so that the convicts
io not feel that they tire under the domi
nation of task-masters. This is the way
; he contract system works in Wisconsin ,
mil it is by all odds the best over
idopted , both for the state and the con-
riots. _

Products of Coal Tar.
Hero is an extract , credit for which is
due the Pittsburg Dispatch :
"So you eat coal , do you ? " said n smart
High school girl in Hagati's a few nights
ago to the beardless young man with n
high collar WHO was buying the ice-
"Aw , cat coal ? What do you mean ,
Miss Ethel ? " replied the unsophisticated
youth with astonishment.
"WUv. I see that you take vanilla fla
voring , ' * replied the High schoolgirl with
ii smile.
"Wcally , Miss Ethel. 1 don't , aw , ex
actly understand you , " the young man
with the high collar reponded.
"Why , vanila tlavorinc is made almost
ontirelyfrom coal tor , * ' said the smart
high school girl , and she was just start
ing with : "Why" , wo learned all that in
our chemistry class last " when the
fire bell commenced ringing , and she
stopped for some reason or other , and an
inventory of all she know was lost. The
vanilla idea was a good one , and a re
porter asked Dr. F. L. Slocum , the chemist -
ist , about it.
"Is vanilla extract a uroduct of coal
tar ? " said Dr. Slocum. "Why , of course
it Is , and a bettor nrticlo is furnLshoJ

Vanilla is made from tolulo , ono of tin

As yet the products of coal tnr have not
been made use of for medicines to any
extent , except as disinfectants :
great experiments now going on , it
is hoped to procure pure quinine from
Chinoline , one of the coal tar products ;
and scientists say that it is only a ques
tion of time when all alkaloids known ,
and probably others not now known , will
bo made from coal tar.
It would take a good-sized book to oven
begin to give an idea of the commercial
products alone of coal tar. Nearly every
know color , except cochineal red and in.
digo blue , are made , and the latter was
produced after nine years of experiment
by the eminent German scientist , Byor ,
of Munich , but the manufacture ! was so
expensive that it has never been done ex
