The Ijocnl Summary.
The financial situalion is unchanged , nnd
the Ilrst week of ISS'.i finds money in active
demand , with our banks in n position to
readily supply all legitimate wants. Collec
tions through bankers' linmls arc promptly
mel , nnd Iho jobbing trndo of the city Is in
oxcellonl condition. Country collections nro
fair ludjno great nmount of distrust or dli-
trcss'TO been felt from the several bank
failures occurring recently In the state.
General trade is of course quiet at this sea
son. Salesmen arc off Ilio rend and books
are being balanced. Conversations with n
number of our Jobbers reveals nn nil round
feeling of satisfaction prevailing as to
the results obtained during 1SS3 , nnd
the belief in expressed Hint IRS'J will bo n
banner year In the history of trade In
Omaha. Capital has increased from earn
ings , nnd now men nro hero with money to
Invest , ntlracted by the position the city bus
obtained HH n jobbing center nnd the appar
ent certainty that the growth of its com
mercial interests will no swifter thnn over ,
nnd Its supremacy as n metropolis of trade
.h the northwest bo maintained.
In nil lines of trade , the past year hns
shown n decided Increase over 1SS7 , and
with the heavy concentration of the packing
industries at Uils point , developed during the
snmo time , there can bo no doubt that
Omaha's ultimate destiny xvlll bo accom-
iilishcd onlv when she rivals Chicago nnd St.
Louis ns n'ilnancinl and commercial renter
In the territory which natural nnd artificial
nlds place tributary to her. Tlio produce
markets have been in n disturbed condition
the past week nnd n decline in prices of but
ter , eggs nnd poultry is nolcd. Flour is also
lower , although n determined effort Is belnir
made by the millers of Iho northwest to
maintain prices by n stoppage of production.
Dry goods , lumber and hardware are steady
- ruling quotations. Groceries arc more
active iii. . . . other Hues. Canned goods and
dried fruits uio culled cheap at ruling
figures. Coffees have fluctuated during the
week , closing somovrlmt lower. Sugars are
steady at 7J4@lJfc ! for gninuiato , ! . tne latter
llguro for standard.
The llsh trade Is slow just at present , but
prices are very firm. Uoston advices state
that owing to the extremely light supplies of
Georges cod quite a speculative feeling is de
veloped nnd every available quintal in cur-
ccs' hands has been bought up by the trade
at an advance of 25c per quintal , and prices
oven nt the advance nro llrm.
Coffee Is not us llrm as it was , but there is
no actual decline as yet. During the year
now closed the option sales of coffee on the
New York coffee exchange aggregated ! 20.-
093,000 , bags , against 2 , r'Jl,7.)0 bass in I b7.
The lowest prices of the year were reached
in March , when November und December
options sold nt 'Jc. ' Thu highest prices wore
in June , when options of the current month
sold nt 21.051There was no month during
the year when the fluctuations were less
than 1K > ' l > er pound.
The foreign commerce of the country for
the past year , exclusive of coin and bullion ,
will show , approximately , imports of the
value of $ :20,000OIH : ) nnd exports of fC.SO-
003,000 , or an excess ot imports of § 10,000,000.
For the. preceding calendar year the Imports
of merchandise were ? rosl)00)00 ) ( ) in value
nnd the exports $715,000,000 , or an excess of
exports of s.7,000,000.
t According lo the reports of the national
banks to the comptroller of the currency as
to their condition on December 12 , Now York
showed 23.78 percentneo of reserve hold ,
Boston 27.80 , St. Louis 28.90 , nnd Ualtimoro
The government expenditures of the past
year have been about 1200,000,000 , or SW-
000,000 greater than any previous year since
1874.
1874.Tho available stock of wheat east of the
"Hookies" nt the close of bust ycnr was
60,841,000 bushels , nnd of corn 10,978,000
bushels. At the close of 1SS7 the stock of
wheat , was 80,170,000 bushels , and of corn
17,303,000 bushels.
The Knilway Ago states that the railway
mileage of the country was increased during
the past year no less than 7,120 miles. While
this is much loss than the phenomenal In
crease In the years 1SS7 , ISSO , 18SS nnd 18S1 ,
when the now mileage was respectively
13,000 , 9,000 , 11,500 and 0,711(1 ( miles , the
record for Ib'iS exceeds that of every other
year in the history of the country , with the
futhcr exception of the year 13U , when
7,370 miles were ndilcjl.
For the year 1SSS the export ? of gold from
New York were 812,870,471 , und the Imports
were fS.r4l,8iH ( , n not loss of $ U < J.,42l50 ] : . In
1887 the exports were $0,1SSS10 ami the im
ports 838,01:2,451 : ! , a not gain of $32,153iKtO.

In the winter wheat section , owing to the
small amount of rain and snow. At the
close of the year the entire winter wheat sec
tion was in need of moisture , nnd bare , ex
cept l northern Iowa , where the ground
was covcrod with six inches of snow. rFom
six to twelve Inches of snow was reported on

CHICAGO , Jnn. 5. [ Special Telegram to
TitEHnE.l-Hcttorcables , the foreign buying
of wheat ut the seaboard , the still furlhor
shrinkage In the already light primary move
ment , nnd the rcK | > rts of n serious drought in
India , were among the Items of news In cir
culation nround the opening , nnd the market
assumed n firmness of tone to correspond.
May started In nt $1.05 , nnd for quite a time
the prices ranged from $1.01 ? ; , to ? I.O.V .
Lnter the prices got down to fJl.OI.'Hf ' and then
advanced to $1.05 , foil br.ck to fl.051 * ,
rallied to fl.O. * > X , broke to fl-Olff , recovered
tofl.OJJif , and neam yielded to pressure nnd
worked back toward $1.01 , closing nt fi.OlV
The local tending crowd was Inclined to
give the market u friendly boost this morn
ing , and the advance to ? 1.05 } was therefore
popular. On tlio way up Hutchlnson whs a
large seller , and when the market hesitated
iit the top he "cut the bag" nnd Hooded the
pit. As values began to yield ho increased
the pressure , and when the price crossed C1.U5
on the back track miscellaneous long wheat
began to come out , nnd Hutchlnson sent h'.s '
brokers Into the pit with larger orders. From
? 1.04J lo f l.osjf the docllue was rapid. The
recovery was slow nnd the market could not
hold at the Improvement , There was some
very good buying during the day , and wise
people in the pit gave it out that
Kent was adding to his load.
They thought they could see in his con
spicuous buying and Hutchlnson's heavy
selling thai a buttle was in progress between
Kent nnd Ilulchlnson. It may have been a
battle In imagination only. The close was
weak , with a loss of about 9fc us compared
with yesterday und about 2 ! > c us compared
with Itibt Saturday. The bear party is oper
ating with increasing courage , and tlio bulls
do not attempt to conceal their chagrin mid
disappointment. Hutclilnson's opmi attitude
of hostility is very disquieting to the bulls ,
nnd they nro awaiting with what patience
nnd fortitude they can command for the sta
tistical ami trade conditions to vindicate
them ami enable them to recover their lost
position , cash nnd prestige. The returns of
the foreign stocks of wheat are as yet far
from complete , but the aggregate , so far as
heard from , indicate a largo perccntngc nnd
increase , as compared with last year , and
well posted exporters expect that the grand
total will not vary in any. ' Important degree.
This , In spite of the "har.ilptilng cables , "
is a seriously depressing , , plpmont. As n
whole , the market tunltiy was dull ,
und trudmu was mOt especially
siifiiifleent. The fears ot 'ma'nipiilation ' have
seemingly died out , und for that reason
genurui publio business may be confidently
expected to increase. It is the fear of the
manipulation that checks business , and that
factor removed , a stimulation of speculation
will naturally follow. January wheat opened
nt OUJfc , ranged to USJfOil.OJ , and closed nt
! )8o. ) July opened nt "Wi-lfe , ranged at
043fpc > c , and closed at 93. Muy monopolizes
attention.
The nmount of business Uono in the corn
pit to-duy was insiguilloent and without
any points of interest. Price
changes were narrow and orders
from the outside scarce. Local operators
monopolized tlio small trade which was pass
ing. The movement from Chicago for the
week was heavy. The export clearances
were again very heavy from the Atlantic
Boiibonrd , with u contimmnca of the light
movement from New Orleans , from which
port 20,000 bushels cleared yesterday for
Liverpool. In Now Yorlc to-day eighteen
boat loads were bought for export. The
estimated receipts for Monday nro
2-12 cars. There was scarcely a ripple on the
surface of the day's doings , as the narrow
range of fluctuations will show. There was
an indisposition to sell short nt the present
prices , nnd no desire to buy , resulting as
near as possible in n dead-lock. The closing
prices to-day differ from yesterday's only to
tlio extent of J < f@l Hie , and the market
wound up in n quiet , undemonstrative way.
The receipts of oats were again rather
licht , with 92 cars posted as In
spected. This was larger than anticipated ,
while at the same time the withdrawals from
store were greater than for some time past ,
amounting to 10,333 bushels , No. 3 offerings
in store wore small , nnd there , was some in
quiry , with Sljfc bid for Nbi.C to uo to store.
In n speculative way therot .was a fair ac

day.Hogs , which were in light supply nnd of n
rather inferior quality , sold at advanced fig

was the continued buying by Kent and the
larger number of outside buiing orders

the local crowd feel that the time for n gen

jtloyod in the construction ot dwellings ,
\vitli wood predominating. The rcsi-
iloucoa uro unusunlly Inrgo and com

graiiilo is used in some of the public
buildings , and for stroat puviii . The
streets nro of sulllciont width to act ns a
check to n severe conflnffration. Gns
and olcotrlclty nro used to quito
an extent for illuminating purjiosos.
A number of privnto electric plants
have boon put in. The incandescent
lljiht hns become so popular that the
gas company purchased dynamos and
apparatus for furnisluiif , ' ' cither Idnd of
lljrht. flor c cars and steam motor
line furnish quick transportation to
various parts of Uio city. A water
works comptiny supplies the city with
water from the Arkansas rivor. Of the
lire companies of Lattlc Hock much
compliant is made. The companies are
volunteer with the 'exception of the
officers , who are paid. Dependence
must be placed upon steam fire engines
instead of hydrants anil hos o carts ,
tlioro is no electric fire alarm system
and often llres will destroy an entire
building before the engines got there.
The morality of Little Hock is guarded
by thirty-one churches and a Y. M. C.
A. Sch'ools , academics and colleges ,
numbering1 in all about twenty-one are
provided for educational purposes.
There are live banks , a. board of trade ,
and four building associations. In addi
tion , the usual range of business lines
is well represented. Twenty uows-
napoi'3 , including all regular publiea-
{ iipns , nro printed in Little Hook. For
the purpose of rest and recreation four
,1pru'ks , have been provided. The wol-
ihire of the citizens is projected by an
ellicicnt police force. Aside from the
state house and the various buildings
used iu connection with the state gov
ernment may be mentioned the deaf
mute institute , tjuhool for the blind ,
state library , state insane asylum , state

CUfKLTY TO CONVICTS.
At Clarksville , Johnson county , in
this state , 0afford ! and Hudson , ox-
wardcuswho wore in charge of thu con
victs worked in the coal mines at Coal
Hill , this stale , were tried on the
charge of cruelty to convicts : Gallon !
was sent to the penitentiary , while
Hudson was released on a technicality.
Tlio mailer was telegraphed all over
the country last March , soon after its
discovery , but there wore facts and
cases connected with the affair that
were not given to the public at large.
There were 140 men stationed at Coal
Hill , and 120 of that number wore cm-
ployed in the mines. The re
ports of cruelty became so fre
quent that u board of investigation
consisting of Governor Hughes , Secre
tary of State 13. B. Moore , and Attorney
General Dan W. Jones was sent to in
vestigate the matter. It was discovered
that throe wardens in succession , Scott.
Gafford and IKidson , had boon guilty ot
the most inhuman treatment of con
victs. Tlio prisoners wore called bc-
jforo the board one at a time and from
Jirst to last a tale of terrible abuse nnd
'cruelty ' was told. One night Scott
whipped seventy-live men across the
nuked back , hitting thoin an average of
fifty licks with a leather strap which
had a piece of half solo leather on the
cud. The skin was broken on cacli
man's back , letting the blood out in
streams. Scott rarely hit a man less
than fifty blows. The penalty for toll
ing was another whipping. A man Har-
ncy was killed by Mat Bailey under the
directions of the warden because ho
could not doMis much work as his part
ner. Then Bailey was hit 150 licks for
lighting. Gallon ! would got drunk and
make the conyicls fight. Of nine cases
brought to light tlio case of ( ihiirley
Williams is a fair sample. Williams
was hit 400 lashes altogether and then
ran oil'and liid in the mines. Ho was
brought out. ono morning about break
fast time and chained to the grating of
the door in the stockatlo by the neck
and hit 101) ) licks. lie was
loft standing all day. At night ho WHS
given 150 mure , left chained all night
and given 15. ' more lushes in the morn
ing. He wns sunt tu the
work housp and kept there all
day. GnlTord came in and
hit him six licks , kicked him a number
of times , and hit him over the hi-nd
witha stick of wood , fracturing the
skull. He died the next day and was
soon afterward buried. Tlio hospital
steward was ordered to toll Hie physi
cian that WillianiH died of congefitivo
chills. Ho did BO and the physian cer-
tillud. When the investigation beeanw
tofwarm ( Scott disappeared. The three
wardens seemed to strive toward out
doing eauh other in their cruelty during
their respective terras. AH it rc tn
now , however , Gatlord is the only ono
who will siill'er.

CHICAGO , Jan. 5. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Uitr. ] Hankers luivo been ngrcenbly
disappointed in tlio demand for loans , ns tlio
liberal culls tlio Inttor part of tbo olil your
led them to expect n falling off. Instead of
decreasing , however , tbo nc\v year opened
with M brisk nn iiuiuir.v ns the olil ycnr wont
out with. Merchants nnd manufacturers nro
asking for considerable money to discount
their purchase bills , uiul tlilo them over uiittl
trndo improves. Lumber men nrc ulso seek
ing more llnnnclal assistance than for sumo
time past and Imvo secured several
largo sized loiuis , There Is also an Increased
amount of paper offurod , utitdo by cattle
feeders , A largo part of the hitter la sent In
by country bankers to bo rodlscountcd , ud
good rules nro obtained. Chleiigo bunkers
charge 7 ( < ? S per cent , while Interor bankers
got 8 < S9 per I'ont and oven higher rules. Tlio
general fooling Is ono of ilnnncss , the
ruling interest rates being 0iM ( per cent
0 per cent being the inside figure on call , nnd
7@3 per cent on limo loiuis. The largo dla-
trlbution of money In Interest nnd dividends
that Is being nuulo will increase tbo nniounl
of money in ulrctilatiou , butthoro issunioient
demand to nbsorb the available Burplus.at
present rules. Now York exchange was
stcndy with n fnir deiimnd , nnd snlos worn
made during the greater part of the week nt
pur to 23c , per $1,000 premluin , closing nt
par. Foreign lOxchnngo became wonhor early ,
owing to the liberal offerings of bills drawn
against tlio rather free shipments of pro
visions. Sales early ranged at $ I.B ! tf@
l.SHV. Lnter , n firmer feeling was dovcloitod
nnd rates ndvnnced to fl-sav . ? 1 ! . > . , clos
ing nt ft.sajjOHSUf. The jobbing trade
hns been materially Intornpted by the holi
day festivities , coupled with tlio fact that
merchants in all parts of the country
were taking stock account nnd closing up
hist year's business ; hence they were more
anxious to ascertain tlio result of their ycur'a '
work and BOO now they stand , than to muUo
Iresh purchases. Tlio general tone of.tho
marUot for dry goods was strong mid slight
advances wore noted on some 'linos '
of cotton fabrics. Groceries wore steady
and most lines of Iron nnd ntcol
linn. Collections wei-o much bettor .thuu
usual nt tins season of the year , unit 'tlio '
footings of 1SS3 show that payments aver
aged higher proportionately than during any
preceding year. A decreased -volume of
business was transacted on the Now Yurie
stock exchange during the week , nnd un un
settled feeling developed. The oponing'.wns
marked by more steadiness , the Impression
being that the agreement among "gentle
men , " ns ttio recent rnto war settlement-was
termed in slock circles , would last nt least
during the ilrst week in January. The now
ycnr had hardly opened , however , before
rumors of a cut in passenger rules byitho
Missouri Pai-lilc were reported. This ,
whllo taken with a grain iof
allowance , tomlcd to shako the .faith
of the operators in the agreement to maintain
rules , nnd checked any disposition ou < the
part of tlio investors to take hold with .free- '
dom. Tlie bears sold grange stocks , particu
larly Atchiaon , nnd prices declined 8J points.
The downward movement was nceolerated
uy the November report sliowiiR |
a decrease of $ .WO,000 in the mot
earning , and nlso by n rumor ; tlmt
at the next mooting of its directors a divi
dend would either bo reduced to * 4 of 1.per
cent or passed. Liquidation was quite ctreo
on the decline nnd prices touched OIJ , 'but
rallied slightly. St. Paul became heavy'Into
In the week nnd declined 3V uotnts , und re
acted 1 } { points. While grangers iworo
weak , coal stocks remained stubborn 'and
the losses were comparatively small.
Jersey Central attracted most attention
nnd advanced 0 points on the report that it
had earned 15 per cent during the year. 'This
helped the rest of the list , and small rallies
followed the depressions. Defaults In the
payment of the January coupona were small.
Denver , South Park& Pacific seconds , which
is controlled by the Union Paelllc , failed to
pay interest on its Hrsts several months
ngo , nnd has pursued the same course
on its seconds. Cincinnati , Washington &
Hnltlmoro passed Into a receiver's hands.
Intcres'toutho South Carolina niilwa.ViSec-
end mortgage bonds was not paid , nudlhold-
ers of Ohio , Indiana & Western junior'bonds '
were given notice of the road's ' luabllitytto
moot its payments ut present. Tbo aggre
gate sales for the week were 833,000 shares.
Speculative trading in produce .was [ only
moderately active. During the wooic dust
closed an unsettled feeling prevailed .the
greater portion of tlio tlmo nnd prices 'filled
very irregular , especially in the wheat -jjntl
provision markets , and on the whole irango
averasod lower. Tnu Blocks of ibotb
grain and provisions arc gradually
accumulating , and there has been iruttmr
more of nn Inclination to .sell
for future deliveries , especially -tho 'de '
ferred months. Advices from abroad lhave
been unfavorable to holders generally , ibut
the supplies in that quarter nro generally
smaller , than reported ono year -into , 'JL'ho
domestic markets have exhibited un unset
tled feeling , with the range of prices tHytnua- 'i
thi/.ing , to some cxtunt , with the , courno of
the markets at Chicago. OperatorHiin .appc-
ulullvo articles were tt-nimfonanf , '
their contracts ahead as much us rticra-
sililf , nnd the. hulk of .the 'bunluoHs '
was credited to the local xpcculators.orito
parties in the central markets , 'J.'ho ' .orders
from tlio smaller points were comparatively
light. In the .shipping brunch of .trado.tUoro 1
was a fnir business reported , but -buyers
were BOtiiewhnt conservative in itholr
viovvs and not disposed topay
former figures , In view of thb.unsettled
feeling in spoculiitlvo clrclagSellera
grunted concessions rather reluctantly , ; but
were desirous of preventing liny accumula
tion In property , if possible. The oniiurt
movement of grain was lIght.oxcQptmgiUf
corn , while the quantity of prqvlblouB rfor-
warded nbroud was larger than UBUnUttliougli
the bulk was property previously .purchased ,
Seeds were nulct , v.'lth little change itn juuto
in prices , The movement of live .stick
was moderate at nil the jprlncjpul

very little business during the huliduy BOU-
HOII , The packing of the west eimtiiuiusito
decrease In number , the returns if or'tlio '
