Cable Special to TJIB BBK.I The cotton
corner crush came to day , and when the
crisis mine It fell like n thundcruoll upon all ,
especially upon Slcuustraud's friends and
Ittpuortora , for the result was not what they
axpcctcd. The result was an utter collapse
6f the porner. and although doubtless many
brokers have lost heavily , the cotton kmc
hns not como out with flying colors. It yet
remains to bo seen how ho will bo affected.
The opening of the market was awaited
vltlt great anxiety and the excitement ot the
: row < l on 'change has not been equalled
Jlnco the tlmo of the .groat Mor
ris Hunger cottii corner in 1881.
For Bomo days the rumors about settling hnd
Aion of a varied and somewhat exaggerated
nature , nnd therefore the opening of the
market was looked rorwnfd to with Intense
ntorcst , not only In Liverpool but In Man-
tickler and throughout the cotton manufao-
urlng district. Among those present were
lOmo ot the largest cotton speculators In the
vorld , representatives of the groatinantifac-
urlng firms ot Lancashire , UKonts of Amor-
can exporters , and leprcsotitatlvcs of conti-
toittal houses , all mdro or less Interested jn
lie cotton ring. There were numerous con-
tiding rumors Hying about. Some said that
ItcotiBtnimJ was only n figurehead acting
'ot ' on behalf of himself , but of
{ iwarful syndicates , wno formed the corner
f id billed that It could stand any amount
( , squcc/lng , and , let the market go ns It
' ijjlit , they could not lose much , having edged
o cleverly us to counteract the tactics of
dtlior bulls or boars. Others were more
loomy. Great financial catastrophes wore
ely to follow the collnpso of the corner.
\ . QUO time It was stated that a great
nieriimn operator , instead of purchasing ,
is throwing his cotton into the market to
ill at falling prices. This caused some-
Inir like a panic , nnd thcro was quite
rush of holders of cotton to got
I ut. Then cuuio another story that
t ' \o \ marltat was being manipulated *
V a corner ring ; that a broker had boon In-
iicted by the ring to purchase .10,0 bales at
' tv prices ; that this had caused n reaction
f coulldiircc , and that , taking advantage of
ho feeling , the operators had at once rushed
.housands of bales Into the market , gutting
iut themselves , but leaving-others of the
Tliuso rumors nnd reports that mucn cot
ton hud been delivered led to some extrordi-
nnry ilucuiutions.
About ten minutes to 13 o'clock tlio crowd
of merchants , brokers and others began to
move in thu dircctiou of the cotton associ
ation rooms , The excitement was intense.
There was moro jostling and buslla than
there Is to bo found at exciting election gath
ering" , and the shouting put the betting ring
in the shade.
'From this time on the market continued to
drop , uud when the first chime of 18 was
hoard from the town hall clock n loud hur
rah was raised by the crowd , several shout
ing , "The corner lias been broken. "
Much speculation exists ns to the reasons
which induced Stccustrand to make no at
tempt to check the falling market. Thu
, . ( $ nuoral bo'.lof was that be would bo a heavy
buyer and that Saturday's closing price
would have boon largely exceeded. Ho , how
ever , hek1 entirely aloof , and the consequence
-vas that the price , instead of rising , fell.
Many think that in the end ho will benefit by
this stop. Ills now generally bnlioved that
the short-time movement will not bo carried
lute effect , but the spinners , who , with their
operatives , were determined to resist any
'attempt to raise the staple to an abnormal
l > rteo > 3xin , after the turn events have taken ,
buy frotiTBtoenstrand , wno , If he has not
denied BO large a prolit as might have oinuo
to him had ha forced the market , has at any
rate reduced the risk of failure.
Tbd decline in price makes no great differ-
'onco ' to Stcoiistnmd , as ho bad no
'intention ' to sell any contracts.
tllo had always resolved to receive
every bale which bu had bought. Ho held
much less cotton than people iravo him
credit for. It is clear that lie did not hold ut
uny time more than 80,01)0 ) oa'los , whereas the
Konoral cstimalo was that ho had 150,000
bales. The disappointment to-day Is there
fore moro the disappointment of small bulls
than'of the principal operators themselves
An instance of qutcic delivery of cotton
was afforded. On Saturday thu steamer
I Hcspuridcs docked In the Toxteth dock
about noon , Among her cargo were 3,175
bales of American cotton , which were dis-
'charged , carted nnd stored in warehouses ,
' -I'stunt from t'-io steamer over one. and n half
miloH , in the short space of seventeen hours.
Deducting stoppages , thu owners were thus
Enabled to incut September contracts und to

Telegram to THE 13ri : . | To-morrow will
como the most Important election ever held
in Dakota.
The state of South Dakota wilt vote on n
constitution nnd a full stnlo legislative and
congressional ticket. Doth parties have
tickets in the field , but the democrats have
litllo hope of success , nave hero nnd there In
some legislative districts. ,
The chief Interest durln ? the campaign
has centered In the contest over prohibition
nnd the capital location. For the latter Sioux
Fallx , Huron , Pierre , Watortown , Mitchell ,
Chamberlain ana Hcdtlcld have contested ,
but the last two have recently withdrawn.
Each town claims n victory , but there is no
data upon which to speculate wlthjauy degree
of certainty. The chief Interest of the
campaign has been ou the prohibition ques
tion , For the first time in the history of the
country a new state has had a chance to vote
on constitutional liquor traffic. As a large
part of the population of South Dakota has
como from Iowa , Wisconsin and Minnesota
the temperance sentiment is strong and the
Indications point to n prohibition victory.
Still , during the past few days , liquor men
who have been-quiet during the campaign
have been having moro to say. Many
have el limed they would win.
For several days vague rumors
have been afloat that the Sioux
Falls registry list had been padded In the
interest of the whisky men. Rival capital
aspirants hnvo been making energetic use of
the statement that Sioux Falls had registered
over five thousand votes und that she In
tended to override the sentiment of the state
for the capital and to go against prohibition.
Many of tbo best men of the city have In-
vcstlgatoJ the affair and 1C developed that
while lust year Sioux Falls polled 1,800 votes
and that while the population lias Increased
40 per cent the registry lists aggregate over
six thousand names. .More than this it de
veloped that under the different alphabetical
letters from ten to twenty names are found
on all the lists. This Indicated a gigantic re
peating scheme , and It Is disclosed that there
are a largo number of professional repealers
Iu the city. The whisky men denounce the
insinuation that they instigated it , and de
clare that the prohibitionists themselves uro
the guilty ones. The mayor has appointed a
committee of citizens to guard the purity of
the ballot box. lioth sides are determined.
The excitement runs high nnd the hottest ,

PIEIIUE , S. D. , Sept 30. | Special Tele
gram to Tun Hii.l : : The excitement in Pierre
to-night is intense , nud tbo people feel that
nothing can prevent the capital from coming
here by several thousand plurality at least ,
and Hon. P. F. McClurc , the democratic
candidate for governor , returned to-night
from an extended trip over South Dakota ,
und states the total vote for Pierre will
bo 25,000 , Sioux Falls 20.000 , and Huron
17,000. The bolting men everywhere are
offering odds ou Pierre against the field and
can get no takers. The men In every capital
town report that Sioux Falls has registered
over four thousand moro votes than she east
ut lho last election. This lias caused pro
tests to bo sent to K. F. Pottlgrow , that If
the gigantio fraud is allowed evor.v town
would work to defeat Ilia election for United
StntcH Boimtor , and that tlio election will bu
con tested.

n brilliant finale , and all are anxiously
awaiting the result at the polls to-mor

the btato there is no doubt , it
Is simply a question of the size of the major
ity. Some place it at 10,000 and others nt
8.000. Tbo full republican state ticket will
bo elected , uud the legislature will be largely
republican. It is estimated tlmtof the hinoty-
two members ol the legislature at least
twenty-fivo will bo democratic. The fight on
prohibition U earnest und vigorous , and the
"drys" will bo defeated. It is estimated
that there will bo 10.UOO votes polled nnd
that of these there will be a majority of at
least fl.UOO agalust prohibition. The United
States senators to bo elected will unques
tionably bu republican unless the Norwegians
and farmers' alliance men push some candi

Ex-Postmaster General Frank lintton , In
a double leaded Post editorial to-day con
tinues his warfare upon the civil service as
conducted by the present commission.
The fight i * extremely warm. Mr. Hatton
Intends , if po'Jlblc , to bring ubout a reorgan
ization of the commission.
His especial grievance Is ngamst Commis
sioner Lyman , who , It ls alleged , Is not a re
publican , never was nu uctlvo one and cares
more for his personal position nnd fixing
places for his family than ho docs for the
public good ,
In his editorial to-day Mr. Hatton reiter
ates his charges that the commissioners in
making appointments and promotions "have
persistently violated the law which they
were sworn to cuforco , " and that ho "can
prove the charges to any congressional in
vestigating committee. " Mr. Hattou de
mands an investigation nud says
that If one Is not made by di
rection of the commissioners , an
Inquiry will bo Instituted by 3 congressional
committee. He goes into the details of'hls
charges and specifically points out what ho
alleges to bo violations of the law.
Whatever Mr. Hattou's object may be in
making these cbarges , helms put them lu a
form which will demand some kind of action
at the hands of either the civil service com
mission or those- responsible for It.
Congressman Gates , of Alabama , the ox-
confedcrato who led the filibusters in the
last congress against thu direct tax hill , and
who Is one of the ablest men of his side of
tlio boiiso , was recently lu Wash
ington and now sends back some
expressions. Ho bitterly opposes the propo
sition to have u democratic leader Wno will
hold the reins and eraek the whip over the
democratic members of the Fitty-lli-it con
gress. Ho regards Mr Haudall us being on
the other side of the fence from the majority
of his party , whllo with Sunset Cox dead the
IJrcckinridgcs cannot control the body of
democrats located lu the north. Ho docs not
bellevo that Mr. Carlisle will bo able to lead
the democrats en masse.
"The democrats , " says Mr. Gates , "will
never follow a leader lllto the republicans.
Tlio republicans like a fiock of sheep will
Jump the fence and follow the bell wether-
buck wherever ho goes. Our people kick
up behind , because there are issues
Within the ranks such us the customs duties ,
the internal revenue and the southern ques
tion , on which we dlviuo. I think that there
should bo u steering committee appointed
from tlio most conspicuous democrats iu tno
bouse , whose business it xvill bo to suggest
lines of policy , and to submit them from tune
to tnno to the caucus. Wo will know Just
what we are uoing then , and II wo have any
differences wo can settle them lu caucus , in
stead of on the fioor of the house lu open ses
sion. "
The fact Is , the democrats iu the Fifty-first
congress are so split up ou the issues that
they can never come together , mid there is
something far seeing lu what .Mr. Oatcs
says. A "steering committee" can bo
composed of n member of each wing of the
party. For Instance , tariff protection , Kan-
dnll ; free trade , Carlisle ; anti-negro , Oates ;
solid south , the Hrcckmridges , uud others
representing an unfair count , un-recoiibtruc-
tion and bulldoring can compose the com
mittee. If nothing else is done it can agree
that every effort shall ho bent toward keep
ing the republicans from legislating. Colonel
Oates Is very outspoken In what ho has to
say. almost rebellious , and if what ho lias
indicated is to ho put with the recent utter
ance of Representative B.yiiuui , of Indianapolis -
apolis , the democrats urn laying the pipes to
spend six or eight months In filibustering mid
fighting against legislation pledged by the
republican party.

case ut noon to-day.
Forcmau Fosdyk read the presentment ,
which stated that the jury were satisfied
thcro was a wicked conspiracy ; that surh
conspiracy could bo carried out * under cover
of the laxv was of great public concern ,
The Jury called the attention of the legis
lature tutho pernicious system of appointing
referees to take testimony In divorcn cases.
The testimony should bo taken by the Judges
iu open court. The harm which would bo
done by the publicity of.sueh evidence would
be far leas tlmii that which befalls when
things are done in secret. ,
"It is obvious , " runs tbo presentment ,
"that the decree of divorce could not bo ob
tained without the sanction of Judire Hook-
stavcr ; that sanction was gumod partly by
deceit und impostuio , and partly either by
judicial negligence or judlcal collusion. If
by negligence , such was inexcusable : if by
collusion , suuli was criminal. We huvo not
determined which. "
Lawyer White , while it might bo said ho
intended no wrong , bo still deserved to bo
Ambrose Mouoll nnd Josepli. Mocks , the
jury thought , hud imposed on the court and
obtained thu divorce by collusion , deceit and
fraud. The presentment concluded by stat
ing that the Juror * had coma to the conclu
sion "that a wicked und criminal conspiracy
hud been committed and the persons whoso
names appeared on the accompanying indict
ments deserve to bo treated according to
law. "
