Tlio Money Supply.
Thrre has brcn no appreciable chanpe In
flnnncial'affairs the past week. Hankers re-
l > ort money ( ] uito plentiful and one or two of
the heaviest institutions have u surplus hllo
larger than they wish , and rates are easier
than is usuaat thisscnson. Ten per cent Is ,
as n rule , demanded , though some few gilt
edged customers are taken care of at 8 per
cent. Exchange is steady at $1 per $1,000
premium.
General trade Is as peed as can be expected.
Politics are uppermost In men's minds , and
us the Oth of November approaches even the
most staid and conservative business men
nro Ineslstlbly drawn Into the vortex and
for the nonce buying and selling urc put In
aboyiinco.
Collections hold up fairly , but not wholly
( satisfactory. However , no uneasiness Is felt
ns thu country is believed to be In excellent
condition and able to meet Its liabilities In
full when the crops of the year are mur-
itctcd
Several of our Jobbers visited Kansas City
this week to confer with the merchants of
that city , St. Joseph , Atchison , and other
Missouri river points as to the propriety of
sustaining prices on "contract goods , " that
is , ponds which are sold under a contract be
tween the manufacturer nnd dealer requiring
prices to bo maintained at list. Thcso
prices have been generally cut by
salesmen to the detriment of their
principals and with no particular
benefit to anybody. It is understood that an
agreement wus reached by which this prac
tice will be effectually stopped. Prices * of
( staples are steady at quotations and no ma
terial changes are noted except on sugars ,
whicd arc lower. Sugar is slow of sale and
prices are not very strong. The Louisiana
crop is gathered and it will not be less than
I.UIO.IXH ) Ions. Not a whisper has been heard
about the electrically refined sugar scheme.
The ttado are beginning'to lose their interest
In it , as much has been promised and little
result is seen. The work of building the big
Philadelphia refinery Is going on. As indi
cative that the business is to be pushed un
der the Immediate supervision of the ewer ,
Mr Spreckles i * building a home in Phila
delphia.
CoiTce Is fairly active and prices nro strong ,
the market being completely controlled by
speculators. The simply of .lava , light as it
was two weeks ago , is still lighter. No
stocks can arrive for a couple of months yet.
and until the latter part of December the
market must be firm. Mild coffees are firm
in sympathy.
The California raisin trade is in a some
what , excited condition. The Lion brand of
California London raisins has been advanced
to $3.10 per box and a further raise to $ i.25 is
promised. A reliable authority says that nil
unsold California raisins are principally in
the hands of George W. Meade it Co. and
the .lohnsoli-Loeko Mercantile company.
The latter' firm are said to bo tlio largest
holders of unsold raisins , their stocks aggre
gating homo 7fiUX , ( ) to bO.OJO boxes. The situ
ation as It now stands is that most of the
crop Is out of growers' hands , most commis
sion houses nro sold out , and the advantage
of the present advance is being reaped by
two houses on the Pacific coast.
Mackerel are scarce and high. The Boston
Commercial Uulletin states that nothing of
consequence has been done by the mackerel
licet for the last week. The weirs on the capo
were pretty well tilled by the small mackerel ,
but no fish to speak of wore caught by seiners ,
nnd the landings foot up only about 1,000 bbls.
Vessels continue to haul up and the season
will soon 1)0 closed. The total catch to date
is S3Mil bbls , against 72,514 bbls for the same
period hist year , 75,744 bbls In 18iO , 317b58
bills in lt > J)5 ) and 411,068 bbls the like period in
Rico is rather active at the last advance.
Dan Talmnge's Sons & Co. write from New
Orleans as follows : "Tho damage to our
crop by the August storms is becoming moro
and moro apparent , not only In curtailment
of rough rice , but in the yield at the pound
ers , which shows a larger percentage of loss
than usual. The line promise of the midsum
mer has entirely disappeared , and it is ques
tionable whether the crop will equal that of
last year. Planters and all interested in the
crop nro beginning to realUo the situation ,
and the market Is hardening and every evi
dence favorable for a market advance , es
pecially on lower and medium grades. "
A Pennsylvania railroad official is reported
as saying that it is almost impossible to
place now orders for locomotives at the
present time , all the works being full , nmt
the railroads of the country everywhere
wanting moro cars. Largely increased earn
ings nro looked for when once the corn crop
is ftilrly in motion.
The American Banker states that the
counterfeit live-dollar United States rllver
certificates , which made their appearance
not long since In the northern and eastern
cities , are gradually working their way
south.
A trade journal calls attention to the fact
that less than the usual autumn movomontof
white pine lumber is going forward from lake
and river markets to Missouri river points.
Middle river shippers are finding that Arkan
sas dimension especially Is supplanting white
plno and Norway along the Missouri river
from Kansas City to Omaha. This means a
corresponding distribution of Kansas plno
throughout Kansas and Nebraska. In the
future lumber trade of the west the Michi
gan and Wisconsin operators will have to
leave out much of the trans-Missouri terri
tory , as It Is Inevitable that dimension and
much Inch stock will bo supplied thence from
southern resources.

Saturday , Nov. 3 , 18SS.
As a rule Saturday is a very dull day on
the cattle market ; no one cares to buy cattle
to hold over until Monday and the actual re
quirements of the day are very small. To
day , however , the market was unusually
quiet and the sales wore small and far be
tween. In addition to being dull the market
wus easier In sympathy with eastern mar
kets. Just ns the market closed a few bunches
were rushed over the scales which helped to
make a better showing of the day's sales.
llngx.
The receipts were light and the demand
Rood and everything was sold out early al
steady prices. One very choice load reached
15.45.
Hlieep.
The offerings wcro liberal and quite a good
many changed hands.

CIIICAOO , Nov. 3. [ Special Telegram to
Tun HUE. ] The panic was not out of wheat
to-day and the tendency of values was down
most of the time , though there were , of
course , sharp rallies during the course of the
session. Yesterday there were some very
largo buying orders In the hands of commis
sion merchants a little way under the mar
ket at the inside range. To-day these orders
seem to have been withdrawn or else the
limits reduced. The bears operated with
greater confidence than they have displayed
for u month , and to their astonishment they
met with less resistance than they have been
accustomed to encountering of Into. The
selling seemed to bo led by Linn , whoso
views are very pronounced , and who operates
courageously when he engages in a campaign.
The bull leaders , on the other hand , seemed
Indisposed at present to contest the tend
ency to a decline , though the strongest
of them nro sutd to be buying on a largo
scale. The short Interest has certainly been
largely increased by the dealings of the past
few days. Whether that Is au element of
weakness is exceedingly questionable In
view of the lightness of stocks and the lim
ited forward movement. The receipts at
primary markets are small , and although the
northwest Is Hooding speculative centers
with dispatches telling of a largely nug-
montrd movement the receipts at the prin
cipal points do not yet show It. The sudden
revolution In the character of news from
t'mt quarter , the change from famine to a
troublesome plenty in a day , is viewed with
natural suspicion , especially in view of the
fact that n quiet canvass shows that some of
the big men up there have sold out and are
presumably anxious for a break to get in
again. It may bo mentioned in this connec
tion , however , that if they had not llrst
felt warranted from a review of the
situation to anticipate a reaction ,
they would not have sold out ,
probably. The bulls and bears alike may ex
tract comfort from the operations of the
northwestcrncra. Cables wore rather better
In tone and New York reported buying for
foreign account in that market. Heretofore
New York has led every other market on
downturns , but to-day it actually pulled
back. Minneapolis reported the execution of
good sized orders for flour export. Those
reports could not ba verified , however. Open
ing trades were around $1.17'jf for May ,
though S1.17'4'gl. ' ( 1.J ( would probably more
correctly represent the initial riingo. The
market then sold down to ? l.liyf , up to
? 1.17 > 'NofTto$1.10X , up to (11.17V , , back to
SI.1 ( % , up again to Sl.UfiU.n'i. ' , down to
f 1.10 , up to SMOJrffiJI.lO'f , off to $1 15 , up to
? l.l5'i ' and sharply down to $1.14. The net
decline on the day was about He and the
weakness became cmpljasi/ied as the session
advanced. It was very sick right at the close.
Hutchlnson was a liberal seller all day.
It-was reported -early in the day that
nowenthouio lastTnight long on a larger
line of wheat than any day yet , but If this
be true ho sccuis at'the present moment
to bo perfectly willingi to see a further de
cline. Lyon and 'one or two parties \\oro
free sellers of December , early getting rid of
considerable lines , December averaged % e
under May when i.thu market was settled ,
but on the slump December was lost sight
of , quotations being notninal. Closing prices
were fl.lSV 'for DeV'fniber and 1.14 for
May. This is tho'M&W point of the day and
week and maUcs a decline of 8c from the outside -
side quotations mudo on the late advance.
During the lust hour the crowd wus suffered
to trade without assistance or opposition
from Hutchlnson , who sat complacently
through the "razzlo daz/lo" as though ho
hadn't a cent's worth on the market.
The receipts of corn were 83 curs over the
ttmatcs , but inspection out of store was un
usually heavy , and experts continue to show
up respectable quantities going forward from
Atlantic ports. There wore also fresh orders
for export on the New York market to-day ,
resulting in the taking of eight boats early
with probably more being worked later in
the day. The opening of the market was
characterised by a fair amount of activity at
about the closing prices of yesterday. There
was a moderate amount of buying for ac
count of nn Influential operator , and ho took
a fair quantity of the December , January
and May deliveries. Fluctuations were hold
withi'i narrow bounds and the total amount
of transactions wore light , and principally
on local account. The market was quiet and
steady during the greater part of the day , an
excellent demand for shipment doing much
to sustain it. Closing quotations show a
slight gain on all futures. November , which
closed at 33c is ? 8'e higher ; December at
JtS c , or 1 l-tto higher ; January at 37c , 'fc
higher , and May at y'Jc ' , J4'c higher than the
respective closing prices on Friday.
Oats were sold rather sparingly within a'
narrow and uninteresting range , not dillcr-
Ing materially from yesterday , and receipts
were fairly liberal , the inspection sheet show-
Ins 51 cars of contract grade out of a total of
2117 cars. Near futures were neglected , with
this and the next months saleable at yester
day's prices and decreased trading in May
at 2SJ < < ii2lf ! , ono trade touching 29ii29'4'c. ( '
Cash outs sold sparingly at 24 } o for No. 2 in
store , or > o improvement , with trading
chiefly in samples.
In provisions the day's business was some
what contracted. Sales for immediate deliv
ery were spasmodic , slow and without special
feature. There were no individual move
ments to mention and with the general run
of traders an undecided feeling held control.
In the market , however , a stronu undertone
was manifested , though lard , January short
ribs and the different deliveries of pork , ex
cept January , closed the same as yesterday.
January pork was advanced oc , and for No
vember short ribs the quotations reported
showed a nominal Improvement of lOc.

A llldo on An Ambulance.
Now York Telegram : Few people
have an adequate idea of the extent and
perfection of the hospital service in
Now York city. Thousands of patients
are annually treated in the wards , and
no doubt hundreds arc cured who would
die of neglect it obliged to weather out
their illness in their own homes. In
addition to this the dispensaries are
daily ministering to the ailments and
dressing the wounds of hundreds of
people whoso diseases or injuries are so
slight ns to enable them to continue
their usual vocations.
There are in Now York city thirty-
nine hospitals. The system employed
in these institutions is the most perfect
in the world.
At every police station and at every
engine house of the lire department
there are ambulance calls. Tlio system
of electrie currents is no constructed
that whenever a fire alarm or ambu-
lauco eall is sounded every boll on the
entire circuit is rung. When twenty
strokes are sounded the hospital near
est the .station sounding the alarm fur
nishes an ambulance. When twcnty-
llvo strokes are sounded every hospital
sends every ambulance and wagon on
its ground * , for this is the signal that
some great disaster has occurred. Such
< in alarm MIS bounded when the wiillu
of the Madison Square garden fell years
ago , and later when the accident hap-
poncd on the Brooklyn bridge.
Whenever a call comes in night or
day the surgeon detailed for this duty is
required to bo ready and meet the am
bulance at the door of the hospital as it
is driven past. Often this necessitates
the exit of the doctor in n state of des
habille and to the completion of his
toilet as ho is whirled through the
streets. The ambulance has right of
way next to the Hro engines and United
States mails , and the drivers usually
make use of their prerogative , oven
when the case is not urgent , as it is im
portant that no call shall bo received
at the hospital which en n not ho an
swered because of the prolonged ab-
bonco of the ambulance.
A reporter recently interviewed sev
eral doctors who have served the brief
tormTeqnirod by the hospitals for this
vuri ( y of work , and listened to the re
cital of some incidents of their amhu-
lancing which show that the doctor on
the "llyor" leads as exciting nlifo as the
fireman.
"During my first week at Bellevue , "
said Dr. Robinson , of Fifty-seventh
street , "I was detailed for night service
on the ambulance. Ono night , as I sat
reading in my room , there came the fa
miliar twenty strokes on the boll , and
the circuit number of the Tombs soon
followed. I picked up mycaso of Instru
ments and a bandage , and with my hat
and coat in my hands , ran down the
stops just in time to catch the wagon.
"Wo whisked through the streets , the
bell clanging and the driver shouting
to the teamsters who crossed our path ,
and after a short but intensely exciting
drive , reached the gates of the city
prison. Hero I met with an entirely
novel phase of service. A delirious
man was brought out to bo convoyed to
the hospital. . Wo had not gone far
when lie vras seized with a lit , the vie
lence of which I ImVo never seen ex
ceeded.
"The patient finally recovered , and I
looked out of the window into the dark.
The curtains wei'o down in front , to
that'tho-driver could not ? co what took
place in the ambulance.
"W.hcn I looked npaln I saw that the
man had got possession of a 'strfotchor
iron. ' He attuuked me. I evaded the
blow and grappled with him. Then be
gan a desperate struggle. . Together
wo fell to the bottom of the wngon. uach
grasping the other's throat and twisting1
and turning in a light for lifu. All un
conscious of the sOeno behind him , this
driver dashed on up the street.
"A fireman stood at the door of nn en
gine house as wo rattled by and caught
a glimpse of the o'cupnnts. Compre
hending the situation at n glance , he
sprang , with the agility characteristic
of his calling , upon the footboard and
gnvo mo his assistance. Jt required
our united strength to subdue the pa
tient. Help came just in time ; for the
maniac Imd almost overpowered me ,
and before we could have reached the
hospital I would hnvo been killed.
"Tho service rendered by young phy
sicians in the ambulance practice of
Now York is seldom fully appreciated.
Appointments to positions in the hos
pitals and dispensaries nro made only
after a thorough examination , and the
physician who rides in an ambulance ,
nltnoiigh he may be young In years , is
often bettor road in the theory of his
profession than many a practitioner
whiwhas been twenty years out of col-
lego. Every earnest student of medi
cine appreciates the value of hospital
service and is glad to avail himeolf of
it , for ho realizes that the great number
of cases coming under his observation
in the hospital wards and the opportu
nity thus alTordcd for the study of any
specialty ho may choose gives him a
great advantage over the physician
who lias only the experience allordcd
by his private practice. "
The Washington Monument Movcu.
Washington Star : Great care is
taken to note the movements of the
Washington monument , for it does
move. The law of contraction and ex
pansion of material by hent and cold
operates hero as well as elsewhere.
When the sun shines full on the east
ern face in the morning the stones on
that side expand and throw the shaft
slightly to the west. Then the sun
goes round to the south and the apex of
the monument makes a corresponding
swing to the north. As the orb creeps
about the sky to its final setting in the
evening the glittering point on top of
the monument makes a contrn-movo-
mont around half a circle , gradually
settling back to its normal position
after the rays of the sun have lost their
power. This movement has never been
calculated , but is undoubtedly very
slight. The wind , too , has an elTcct
upon the structure. From the center
of gravity of the shaft , located 174 feet
and 10 inches ironi the Door , is a cross
beam , from which is suspended a fine
steel wire , protected by a galvanized
iron tube about four inches in diameter.
This hangs to the lloor at the northwest
corner of the elevator well. At the
bottom is a plumb bob weighing twenty-
five pounds , suspended by means of the
wire , and hanging in water. An iron
cylinder protects the instrument from
injury , and a little iron house , about
four feet high , keeps oil' the draught.
Through the cylinder is u telescopic
eyepiece , in one end of which are two
vertical wires about one-quarter of an
inch apart. Wh n a candle is held at
an opening in the side of the box and
the cyo is applied to the outside end of
the tube , the plumb line can bo scon
a fine line between the vertical marks.
Any movement in the bhnft is recorded
by a corresponding movement in the
lino. When the structure is at rest ,
and in its normal position , the line
hangs still , midway between the others ,
but when the shaft is disturbed by the
action of the wind it sways back and
forth like the pendulum of a clock , al
ways coining to rest in tho-contor. This
is observed every diy _ , and if the custo
dian should ever notice the line hang
ing still at any p.oint outside of the two
cross-lines he will then know that the
monument has been permanently moved
from its level position. Until then ,
however , no ono need bo alarmed by the
oscillations of the shaft from the action
of the wind or the inlluenco of the sun.
It Puzzled the General.
"General " said aide
, an , addressing
General Scholiold a few days ago , ac
cording to the Baltimore American's
Washington correspondent , "are you
aware that you are violating a recent
order by Secretary Endicott , which for
bids smoking in tlio department build
ing ? "
"That is a joke , " said the general.
"Jt is a fact , sir , " said the young of
ficer , who showed the order.
After General Schofield read it he
threw his cigar away , remarking :
"Well , if he can stand it I judge that I
should. Much obliged to you for the in
formation. "
The general felt rather blue over the
fact that ho had to bo told of the order.
Later an officer appeared before him
smoking a cigar.
"Aro you aware , sir , " said the gen
eral , that there is an order forbidding
smoking in the building ? "
"No , sir. "
"Thero is , sir. "
"Excuse.mo , fair. There was sir , an
order , but it has been revoked. "
"Tho deuce it has , " said the now mys
tified general , who hastened into the
secretary's room to got full particulars
of an order that was an order and yel
not ono.
The trouble was that some subordi
nate had the ill-manners to smoke
a three cent "undertaker's hope"
in the presence of the secretary , who
is an avowed enemy of tobacco.
The nauseating odor bo incensed the
aristocratic secretary that ho determ
ined to break up the practice of smok
ing in the building. The secretary ,
however , learned that the clerks in the
navy and state departments could stain ]
on the boundary lines of the corridors
separating them from his department
and could blow the odor of their
"tufors" across the halls. This ho hail
not considered when ho issued his order
forbidding smoking in the war depart
ment , and as the secretaries of the
state and navy don't care whether the
clerks smoke or not. the secretary ol
war was compelled to countermand his
order.

Cincvoo , Nov. 3. [ Special Telegram Ip
Tun Br.rj. ] The chief feature of the niohcy
market since the close of last week 'was the
Improved demand for loans from grain and
miscellaneous business circles , the former
beingvnrtly due to the monthly settlement
on the board of trade. In some cases , some
round sums were wanted for special purpose *
and borrowers were readily accommodated.
There is some demand from parties who are
buying wheat at other points to hold through
the winter or convert into Hour , and also lor
meeting maturing obligations Unit are usu
ally larger at this season of the year than
the receipts from collections on cash s.iles.
Cattle dealers and corn crlbbcrs have also
asked for n little moro money. The aggre
gate offerings of paper from various soiiroe.s
were about equal to the ability of the \mnkti
to accept and Interest was rather firm at 0
per cent for call loans on fancy collaterals ,
and OJ @S per cent on thirty days to four
months paper. All previous loans below 0
per cent were raised to that figure or called
In. The outlook for n strong market during
the next six months is good , as the channel *
for the employment of money promise to
broaden moro rapidly than the increase In
the supply. The fact that considerable sums
will bo distributed during the first half of
the current month on interest and dividend ! )
due on the 1st lust. , really amounts to little ,
ns corporations having obligations of a simi
lar diameter maturing January I , Ibb'J , will
soon commence ] to hoard funds for that pur
pose. Legitimate business Interests will also
absorb liberal amounts of money that
will bo slow to find their way back
whc .they can again bo available for dis
counting paper , but while the demand for
money promises to bo sufficient to maintain
interest rates on tlio basis of the figures
quoted above , n material advance or stringent
market is unlikely. In brief , money is likely
to bo firm but not uncomfortably close. Ship
ments of money to the country were up to
recent average. The bulk as usual went to
the wheat flections of the west and north
west. Now York exchange met n better de
mand. Offerings were light and rates ad
vanced from 6 ) c discount to 25o premium per
$1,000. Foreign exchange was quiet with
little variation in prices. Shippers' 00-day
documentary sterling bills on London were
quoted at $ l.b2 @l.82t and closed on tha
outside.
Dry goods and general trade has suffered
from the temporary attention given to poli
tical affairs. Purchases by city and interior
retailers were in the main restricted to the
goods wanted for immediate sale and no im
provement Is looked for until after the next
week. Collections were moderate , but are
expected to increase when trade becomes
moro active.
The New York stock market has shown
modest activity , but the poor oxhiolt made
by the Atchison , Topeka is , Santa Fo follow
ing ns it did the shrinkage In earning of
other lines , coupled with rumors of a con
tinued largo decrease in the Philadelphia &
Reading's income c uised increased distrust
in the value of railwav shares. There was
also the absence of outside buying support
and every effort to realize on largo blocks of
stocks almost juvarlably resulted In
sharp declines. The situation was
further aggravated by an almost
entire absence of outsldo buying support , anil
room professionals , who , as a rule , are loaded
up with non-dividend paying stocks , found it
difllcult to prevent further recessions in
prices. Reliable Wall street advices speak
discouragingly ot the outlook and predict
lower prices in the near future. Aggregate
sales on the Now York stock exchange for
the week ending Friday wcro 1,075,000
shares.
Speculative trading in the leading markets ,
both grain and provisions , exhibited consid
erable activity since the last weekly review ,
yet attention was given mainly to specialties ,
operalors , as a rule , transferring their con
tracts ahead as much as possible or confining
their operations to deferred deliveries
where there was the least probability
of a "squeeze. " Fluctuations in prices
wcro moro frequent and In some
instances extended throuch a wider range
than usual. Margins were called with con
siderable freedom , ns parties who are mak
ing trades for outsldo parties are inclined to
fortify their position as much as possible anil
guard against financial diDlcultlcs. In
grain , wheat has been about the only article )
which has shown any particular strength ,
and outside prices for that article have not
been maintained. Other cereals have shown
n weakening tendency and sold at
'
lower prices. Provisions wcro' stronger
owing to the mcagro supply of
hogs , and prices ruled higher , but outsldo
prices wcro not supported to the closo. Re-
cclpts of grain at all the principal western
markets have been moderately free. Deliv
eries at small stations have been compara
tive light , as farmers are taking advantage
of the mild weather to perform their fall
work. Shipments of grain from lake ports
wcro moderately free , especially of corn and
oats. The export movement of both grain
and provisions is moderate and con
siderably less than at this time
last year. Deliveries on November
contracts wore small , mid the property
tendered was readily accepted by well
known firms and promptly paid for. The
shipping demand for grain was rather moro
active , as parties were anxious to cnhirgo
their supplies in the eastern and middle
states before hike navigation ceases. Seeds
have shown n little activity and prices have
ruled irregular , within a smitll rangp. The
receipts of cattle and sheep continue liberal
at all principal western points , but the sup
ply of hogs Is light. Packing for the sum
mer season shows a reduction of 510,000
hogs as compared with the teturns of Jast
fccason ,
