CntCAflo , Dec. 17. [ Special Telegram to the
flisi : . ] Ornln markets dragged mid nagged
to day In true Saturday stylo. Moth wheat
and corn opened higher than lust night's
clonings , with some of the bullish sentiment
left over from yesterday's small boom ,
nnd during the remainder of the session wcro
inclined to po down when they moved at all ,
nnd fluctuations wcro generally small and
Infrequent. The entire decline , however ,
was Insignificant , May wheat closing Jfo and
May com J o lower Hum yesterday. The
great outside seemed to bo leaving the mar
kets pretty much to themselves and the
murcles of the local traders. First sales of
May wheat wcrb nt 8c ! ) , nil advance over
last night's closing of j c. The price rose to
84c , but nt that point there- seemed to bo
abundant grain for sale , and a lower level
between Si : > c and Sll fc was found and kept
'
for some time. Then by easy stages the
price dropped to SS c , reacted to KJjSjjO and
finally closed at J > < fc. January wheat
opened at 77c , which was the high point for
the day , sold down to 70 > ( g70 > o nnd closed
at 71 % c.
Some remnants of yesterday's strength in
corn seemed to bo loft over to start the mar
ket this morning and May corn opened at
MJiC , which was o over yesterday's clos
ing. Then there was an advance to SiXe ,
but there was too much corn for sale at that
price and the market did not stop long on the
down turn until 54Kc was reached , nnd with
occasional slight reactions the price fell to
GlK < ' 548'ethen advanced to 54 % < W54Kc , fell
to M'MC , advanced to M'fe ' , and closed at
fi4c. January corn opened at 49jfe , sold
down to 4SJ c and closed at 40c. The liulicu
tlons wcro that there was a very largo
amount of May corn for sale by commission
men at about fi5o and that much of it was
ready to bo parted with whenever the price
reached Mo. At the prices ruling most of
tno duy , however , there did not seem to bo
very much doing for outside people and the
realizing of cereal longs served to depress
prices somewhat. .
The oat market was dull and featureless ,
declining a little in concert with other grains.
May oats opened at ! Ho , which was J e above
yesterday's ' close , and after the llrst sales at
that figure lluctuated between Xit'Alc on
the split and Iia c , closing nt o last named
price. January oats opened at Die , sold down
and closed at HO o.
Provisions were a llttlo slow as compared
with the previous days of the week. A fair
interest , however , was manifested and Up
market showed possession of n strong under
tone early in the day. Prices , in fact , were
higher than yesterday and of pork the llrst
sales were at an advance of 1- c. Opening
transactions in lard wcro also at an apprecia
tion of 'JJ4@ Mu "d of short ribs of 5@7 > c.
Subsequently these advances were lost , yet
there was no weakness and the closings all
around were practically the same as last
night's ilnnl llgures. May was against the

Ciuc\oo , Dec. 17. [ Special Telegram
to the Hue. ] CATTLE About all the cattle
on sale wont over the scales before noon.
The natives that wore at all useful were sold
at about the same prices as yesterday and
the general market closed steady with a moro
hopeful feeling on the part of salesmen , who
point to the substantial fact that the run this
week Is among the largest on record , that the
demand ilnally came up to the big supply ,
and nearly all were sold out. Of course prices
nro lower and must remain low at anything
like the present run. The decline on fat cat-
tiu for the week is quoted at from 25o to 40c.
Texans continue to arrive in largo numbers
nnd sell nt extremely low prices , which In
turn keeps values at n low ebb on native
butchers' stock. The stocker nnd feeder
trade bus been active , with n steady range ol
prices during the week. Shipping steers ,

NEW YOIIK , Dec. 17. [ Special Telegram to
the UKE. ] STOCKS The stock market to-day
was devoid of interest and too narrow to
cause special comment by operators. TradIng -
Ing dragged along until the bunk statement
appeared. As this was the mos > t favorable
witnessed In months , showing tin increase in
the reserve of ? l01,47.-i ! nnd u decrease In
loans of $2,03:1,000 : , it induced a few largo
room traders to purchase moderately and
prices advanced slightly. The close was
llrin , but the change was unimportant. The
total sales wcro 03,031 shares.

Cattle.
The receipts of cattle yesterday consisted
of one car loud and. in consequence the only
business done on the market was the si-lling
of the stork on hand which was composed of
very inferior grades. There was not a load of
good cattle on the market , which was about
steady with Friday's prices. Shippcis are be
ginning to reali/o that to got good prices they
must send in good cattle and reports indicate
that the ruu of inferior stock to this market
is nearly ended. !
iloj-s.
The receipts of hogs irefo liberal for Satur-
dav and were in the main good heavy stock ,
although thcro were a few loads of light hog- ;
nnd pigs. The market opened about steady
with Fridaj 's close and by the middle of the
forenoon was lOe , higher on good to choice
and 5c higher on light stuff. The market was
very peculiar nud the same grade of hogs
that sold at ouo tiiuu for $5.uU brought $ . " > .40 ( < g

'Tlio French In Tunis.
Corrcsnoiulunco of the Now York Post :
Tunis will liot bu roleahccl by the French
unless very unlooked-for circumstances
uriso. It is trim thnt thcro uro not moro
tijau H thousand troojis in tlio country ,
but Algoriu is not fur away , nnd n run
way connects with Bonn , containing n
gumboil of omo thousands. ' Ono sues
at the mubt-licud tlio lilies of Franco and
Tunis toyutlior side by side , but btrcots
in tlio city of Tunis are named and num
bered iii French , the now quarter and
boulevard ( completed eight months ajjo )
is all French , und bomo thousands
of shopkeepers , artisans , cafe and
liotel people are to bo found
there. There is n peed iirsl-clnss
hold , quite new and comfortable ) , bo-
aidaa faoino sccoiid nito ones. Tlio Ital-
iaiiS'aro in r-onsidorablo iiumbors , and
are no'doubt strongly opposed to tlio
French "protectorate. " From Golctta ,
tllb jiovt of Tunis , one travels to the cap
ital by ftu Italian railway. Thcro nro
legations and consulates from the for-
eitfircountries , but none from tlio United
States. . The French Imvo not yet suc-
cautlod in interfering with any of tlio
smells < 5f the city , an J thcoo uriso from
utto'r- lack of drainage , heaps of rofu.su
a nd. decaying mattorand from the close ,
'
nnrhnv an'd cunnel-like strcots. The
bazaars are wide and usually cleaner ,
but oven here ono must bo well seasoned
to annoyances of bightand smell to keep
iip. Tunis offers moro to the traveler in
the way of quaint btreots , blind alloys ,
largo bazuurs. and queerly costumed
costumed people than any city in Africa
to my knowledge. It is not yet much
frequented by tourihts , and things and
places v.'Biir a totally different aspect
from what they do on either Tangier ,
Cairo , Algiers or Tripoli. Ono is struck
by the number and influence of tlio
lows. Without them trade would como
to nothing , as they possess most of tlio
money and the commercial skill and
habit. Their men are largo , handsome
follows in rich buniooso and turban ,
while their wamon still wear the trous
ers of embroidered muslin or linen ,
short bunibOoo , and small , rimless , coni
cal hut. Tlio natives are much lower Jn
the social scale , as a rule. If any part
of the jiopulation invited the French
protectorate- occurs to ono that it
must huva been the Jews , and it was
without question a shrewd movo.- The
.Tunisian troops are btill scon , and. the
native authority has has a syiublimco of
existence , but the future evidently by-
longs to tlie red-legged zouixvo. and the

WEEKLY BUSINESS REVIEW.
A Fair Supply of Loanable Funds
on Hand.
THE MARKET REMAINS FIRM.
Trmla Generally Quito Active For
Thin Scnuon of the Ycnr Cnttlo
Market Somewhat Disap
pointing Shipping.
In Iho Commercial World.
CHICAGO , Dee. 17. [ Special Telegram to
the UEI : . ] Hankers report a peed demand
from all sources for money , and claim to have
a fn.r supply of loanable funds on hand to
meet the general requirements of trade. As
a rule regular customers of the banks com
mand the preference , nnd very little outside
paper Is accepted. Uorrowers experience
very llttlo trouble in obtaining favors , but
bankers , as a rule , Insist on undoubted se
curity and rather wide margins. Packers are
asking for n few favors but their demands
are not pressing , and they obtain all the ac
commodations they need. Speculators in
grain and provisions are moderate borrowers ,
but their claims are not so pressing as during
the previous two or three weeks. Lumber
dealers and manufacturers nro borrowing
very little money nt present. The wholesale
mercantile trade presented some paper for
discount , but they were not pressing in their
demands. The market , in * n general way , is
very firm. Kates of interest are well sup
ported at 7dJ7 per cent on call , 7@S percent
on time loans , with very llttlo paper nec'cptcd
at the inside ilgurcs. Trade , in all depart
ments , is reported quite active for this season
of the year , nnd merchants con
fidentially , expect n further en
largement after the opening of the now year.
In eastern financial centers money continues
in good demand nnd rates of interest are
well maintained nt 5(27 ( per cent. Some re
lief is expected after the llrst of the year and
the year's business is closed up. Advices
from Kuropean ilnnncial centers indicate
very llttlo change in that quarter. Money
continues in good supply , with a fair inquiry
Iroin nil departments of trade , and no pur-
ticuhir change to note in interest rates.
Now York exchange was oll'ered more freely
during the week Just closed , and the market
was unsettled. The demand was fair early ,
with few sales between banks nt 'J.'o pre
mium for $1,000. , Near the close the market
was weaker , and sales were made at 50@00o
discount per $1,000 , and closed easy at the
decline. Foreign exchange was in moderate
request nnd Offerings wcro fair. Early in
week , the feeling was easy but near the close
a steadier feeling prevailed and prices ruled
higher again. Shippers sixty day's documen
tary bills on London changed handsnt$4.79)j
( JM.SOKt and the maiket closed steady at
W.SOKU4.80X. ( | Stocks In New York ex
hibited a fair degree of activity during the
past week , nnd the feeling was somewhat
unsettled , though the fluctuations in prices
were confined within a narrow range. Early
in the week , the feeling w.is weak
nnd prices ruled lower on all the leading
properties. Later , the market rallied
slightly , and prices wcro improved n trillo ,
but near the close ruicd easier again , with
prices favoring buyers. The earnings of the
leading railroads are well maintained , but
this feature appears to have very llttlo effect.
Wall street operators were only moderate
traders , and outside parties engaged in only
limited transactions. Foreign speculators
traded to n moderate extent in specialties.
The sales on the New York stock exchange
for the week aggregated 1,492,000 shares.
Tno leading produce markets exhibited about
the usual activity during the week , but con
siderable nervousness existed , nnd prices
fluctuated somewhat , though generally con-
lined within a narrow range. During the
early part of the week there was considerable
inclination to sell on the part of the "longs"
both local and outside and lower figures
wcro reached for all the leading articles.
Foreign reports were less encouraging. The
stocks of Homo of the cereals we're consider
ably enlarged , nnd there appeared to bo a
general disposition to realize and accept
prolits later. The markets exhibited more
strength In a general way , with more pur
chasing on behalf of "shorts , " and better in
quiry on the outside for Investment. Grains
of all kinds have been fairly active and prices
averaged lower. Provisions were somewhat
unsettled and prices ruled irregular , though
the market closed rather flrm. Arrivals of
grain at western markets wore moderately
free and the export movement shows some
improvement. The outside movement of live
stock was only fair , and rather disappointing
to parties in that branch of trade. Stocks of
provisions are gradually increasing , botli hero
and at country points , while supplies of grain
are increasing slowly , with the exception of
wheat. The shipping movement continues
active , especially to eastern and southern
points , and there nro some complaints of
scarcity of cars In some sections. The pack
ing of the west , owing to decreased receipts
of hogs , Is now falling somewhat below the
returns of last year and the quality of the
hogs is not very good.
ADDITIONAL OOUNOIL BLUFFS.
The Cily OITcndcrs.
There was a good grist In the police court
yesterday. The vags got off easy but the
drunks fared hard. T. S. IJeyhcimcr , W. F.
ICcofe , nnd Pat Itigott wcro each taxed
fS.10 for drunkcnnos. W. II. Thomas and A.
C. Emerson , vags , and L. Albertson , sus
picious character , were continued. A. M.
Hunker , aw-stcd for peddling without a li
cense , discharged. F. Glllt'eathcr was taken
in for not complying with the city ordinance
in'regard to providing high end gates for dirt
wagons , lie was very much "on his ear"
about being arrested and was given till to
morrow afternoon to cool off , and appear for
trial. Mrs. Smith appeared to sco about her
husband , who was arrested on her complaint
for abusing his family. The judge thought
that a severe lecture might prove beneficial ,
but she declared that she "hadn't been liv
ing with him for nineteen ycais for nothing ,
and knew him bolter than any Judge in the
country. " She thought that a couple of
weeks in Jail would do him more good than
anything else. The court concluded to put
him on probation.
The case of Christine IToagland , the light-
fingered chambermaid , was continued until
the arrival of tier father , llur mother is
said to bo suffering fioin a lit of sickness
caused by this aftair.
Gathered In tlio Valley.
Missoinu VAI.I.IJV , Dec. 17. Much has been
said in Fremont nnd Omaha about the re
moval of the shops and general ofilccs from
this city ; the former to F.remont and the lat
ter to Omaha , but nobody licto seems to con
template any such move , and to look at the
now switch yards here , enlarged and straigh
tened this fall oho would not think the road
Intended making any serious changes. There
are nearly twenty miles of track in the city
limits now , nnd all well graveled. The Fre
mont , Elkhorn & Missouri Valley nnd Sioux
City & Pr.cillb have ninety-seven locomotives
Which , of course , must bo brought hef o for
repair when such become nerei'iury. The
shops are run night and diiy and still they are
behind all the time.
The Pacific Mutual telegraph company will
establish an ofllco hero in a few days. They
will occupy quarters in thu postoftlco it is
Bald , in order to accommodate the public
more fully. It Is intimated by thee likely to
know , that the St. Paul & Duluth railioad
lifts no Idea of passing Missouri Valley by
building down on the other si Jo of the Uoyor ,
but will run the road In hero.
A merchant hero , who has been wooing the
daughter ot a brother merchant for the last
two years , having made nil arrangements to
lead the beautiful and rosy-chcokeu aforesaid
to the altar , nnd having furnished a sultb of
rooms elegantly for this avowed purpose , has
received the unkindcst cut of all by his who-
was-to-hiivo-bocn mothor-ln law confronting
him with n letter from a former love In Illi
nois , stating that the gentleman horclnabovo
mentioned was her lawful worst two-fourths ,
and had proved It by going forth never to re
turn , nor did he show any love nnd affection
for his progeny , whloh she was clothing ;
which latter she could not got "nt cost , "
cither. It has created quite a tulK , and it is
feared that It will drlvo the expectant groom
distracted if the woman persists inherelalin.
Tlio Avoon Court.
There are prospects for part of the business
of the Avoca court being lopped off. Here
tofore criminal cases , 'taken to the district
court on ap | > oal from that part of the county
have been heard nt Avoca. Colonel Dally has
made n motion In thcso rases to have them
nil remanded to the district court here , on the
ground that the Avoca branch has no Juris
diction. The motion In being hold under ml-
vlsenient by Judge Loot bonrow. If unstained ,
it will do away with considerable of the busi
ness of the Avooa court , and there will doubt
less bo some revival of the old fooling that
Avopn Is not getting the conveniences and
the honors duo to the city of the cast end' ) of
the county ,
Not So Orcedy After All.
County Clerk Shea takes very cooly the
sharp criticisms made by the grandmother ot
Broadway in regard to his securing nn.lu-
Junction against the Union Pacific. Ho pro
tests , however , against the bold , bad lie
about his having asked such n high price for his
lots that the Union depot company would not
buy them. Ho says that ho offered the lots at
several hundred dollars less to the Union
depot company than ho was actually offered
by private parties , and as the company
agreed to take them , ho refused the uthor
offer. After thus losing the sale of tho.lots
to private parties , lie says the Union dcjwt
company went back on Us agreement.
