Cable Special to THE UBI : . ! Stoonstrund
now declares that 11 was the largo number of
bulls who rode on bis back that caused thn
collapse. The quantity of cotton held by
them was very much larger than anyone had
nny Idea of. The bulls waited till the last
moment with the expectation that he would
bo able to raise the market , but they were
disappointed , and must have lost considera
ble , though ho could not give any idea of the
amount 1lo believed ono result of the collapse -
lapse would bo lo do nxTny with nny idea of
runnlmron short time In the mills.
Operations on 'chango wore resumed to-
dny after pretty nearly the ordinary fashion ,
but with still declining markets. Though
thu cotton ttlng will not make so much us ho
thought , ho will not bo loft without a goodly
pile when iiinUerfT'firo settled up for , though
lie was pretty well choked with cotton yes
terday , ho is not now BO hampered with it as
ho would have been hud he not been contin

MANCHCSTCIC , Oct. 1. | Now York Herald
Cubic Special to Tun line. I There was
nn exceptionally large 'attendance of cotton
I manufacturers on 'change to-day , In consequence
quence of the news of the collapsa of tuo
corner. On nil sides the fall of the monopo
lists was hulled with satisfaction , nnd not
withstanding that the condition of affairs is
.yet out ) of considerable uncertainty , there
was u disposition to boJiovo'that the failure
of the Steenstrand party to hold stocic is the
signal for a total breaking up of the rlne. A
louellnz merchant said In response to an
"Tho evldenco that the corner is smashed
is complete , nnd I have no fear of tlieir Doing
able lo recover themselves. Consignments
from America have proved larger than wo
expected and the corner 1ms been unable to
take them up , consequently there is every
reason to expect that the game is played out.
There is yet nny amount of anxiety , but , we
all expect this to got better and before an
other week is past wo hope to have got down
to the ordinary run of business. Undoubt
edly the events of the last ten days have de
moralized the trade oven beyond the
present calculation to estimate , and
tint only have the operators been the
sufferers , but the spinners , and especially
the smaller ones , have been wound up
Ift pretty tightly. Hud the corner been able to
bold Its own the damage to the weaker man
ufacturers must hnvo been very great , as
they could not hnvo afforded to close the
mills during the tinio needed without seri
ous ana In many cases perhaps irreparable
injury being done to the concerns. As it is ,
however , wo rejoice that matters have boon
hurried to an issue which Is all against thu
corner and nil In favor of the musters und
operatives , and , therefore , the country gen
Mundlcy , secretary of the operatives' as
sociatlon , said : "Tho Steenstrand party
cornered far uioro material than any ring
that 1ms previously cxis.cd. From March
to September his liguro has boon ar > 3OJO bales.
Morrm Hanger , whoso collapse you will re
member , only took up 187,000 bales in that
period , while Uungo , In 1SST , took up 151,000
bales. Steoustrana should yesterday have
talten up something like 150,000 bales bud ho
boon determined to Keep the corner intact ,
but only 105,000 were taken up. Ho Is evi
dently a man of practical Judgment and has
stopped Just soon enough for that consign
ment. Ho would pay probably at the rate of
0d per pound , and If hq hold until other
cargoes came no would possibly suffer a loss
ol half a penny a pound , _ and 1
ca'oulnto that by this lie' would
lese a sovereign per bale , and this on 100,000
would Just lese him more than he has made ,
and take away n considerable amount of his
Speculating resources. The mistake made
by Morris Hunger was that ho did not know
when to stop. Steenstrand , however , has
lioen much more artful aud has quit In
"How loig : do you Imagine the present un
certainty will lust I"
"I expect that by the end of next week
the ring will have buon relocated to history.
The price of cotton has had an appreciable
fall , und I shall bo surprised If it Is not con
siderably under ( Id. It will lake a few weeks
to gut thoroughly into working order , but
now that thu collapse Is assured there Is per-
'feet contentment , us wo know that no further
damage can be done. "

SVIIACUSE , N. Y. , Oct. 1. The democratic
state convention assembled hero to-day and
elected Lieutenant Governor Jones tem
porary chairman. Ho made a somewhat
lengthy speech , in which bo referred to thu
defeat of the uurty at the last national
election , and stated that Its members were
not discouraged or demoralized , but ready to
renew their allegiance to thu platform of
In spoaklim of ClOvoland'n administration
ho said thu History of the country does not
record a more successful administration than
that of 1.SS3 to 18S9 , and continued :
"Every interest am agonistic to that
of the pcopla made common cause against
the democrats. Not only did wo have to
contend with the wealth of the plutocrats ,
mammoth combines of capital , great trusts
and unscrupulous monopolies who joined
their forces , but all thu minor interests that
were prospering under the advantages af
forded by the high protective tariffs , and our
attempts at stemming thu current of boodle
were as futile ns the damming of the Missis
sippi river itself. Never before in the his
tory of tlio country has an administration
gained the control of the government
through such wild and extravagant prom
ises , and never lias an administration so soon
gone to protest. "
Referring to the part pensions played In
the late campaign the lloutonant-govornor
said : "Many nn old soldier was prejudiced
by misrcpresentatlor.s of the mnnaxomcnt of
the pension department under the demo
cratic administration. When their interests
were in our hands not only nil tlio rights but
the honor of the veterans was protected.
To-day ho why risked his life leadlngtho for

claims on the gratitude of his country rated
no higher than the bounty Jumper and
deserter , and now ho confesses with shanio
that ho helped by his vote to place in
power nn administration that wantonly
brands him and every comrade who holds an
hoilorublo discharge with the basest , htigmn
of disgrace. In the political campaign of
1S33 the soldiers were promised pensions
galore. Influenced by their prejudices and
tempted by their greed they rallied to tlio
republican standard by regiments. When
the administration assumed power their con
fidence was renewed and they foil encour
aged by the appointment of one from their
own ranks as commissioner of pensions , who ,
upon assuming oQIcc , assured his old com
rades that thu liberal promises that ho had
made by authority on thu slump should bo
faithfully kept. Ilo took his position with
the honest Intention of carrying out what ho
had been taught in the campaign was to bo
the policy of the republican ndniiinstration
if elected , but ho suou found out that it was
intended ns their policy if not elected.
Ho was a faithful soldier who thought ho

cers when ho opened the flood gates of the

lusion to Cleveland ovoited hearty cheering ,
which was continued for over a minute. The
usual committees were appointed aud recess
taken until 5 o'clock.
On reassembling the temporary organiza
tion was made permanent and the platform
adopted. It reafllrms the doctrines of the
democratic platform of 1SSS , and says : "Wo
do not advocate free trade , but steadfastly
advocate the principle of tariti reform. "
President Cleveland's administration is In
dorsed. The republican party Is charged
with obtaining power by corruption ,
false pretence * , intimidation und the
cociclon of voters , unperformed promises
and tlio shameless trafficking of cabinet nnd
other offcees to the highest bidders. Presi
dent Hninson is arraigned for having re
moved "hundtcds of honest and capable
ofllcera before tlio expiration of their terms ,
In violation of his ante-election pledges. "
The plantc dealing with the liquor question
says : "Wo do not favor the unrestricted
sale of Intoxicating liquors on ono bund , nor

Sioux F.tu.s , S. D. , Oct. 1. [ Special Tel-
grain to TUB Hin. : ] Tlio most important
campaign ever lichl In South Dakota was
brought to a close last night.
Tlio election has been hotly contested only
in respect to the question of prohibition. Tlio
democrats made no effort to push thulr
ticket , and party lines were forgotten. In
this city the Issue was prohibition in tlio con
stitution or not.
It was feared that serious trouble would
follow tlio attempt , wlitch was laid at the
door of the whisky men , to poll a largo
fraudulent vote. A registration of 0,000 In a
city which could not expect to poll
over 2,500 votes did not look
well , but the schema was discovered
mid exposed. Tlio citizens took prompt hold
of the matter und their energetic action
doubtless saved much trouble and disgrace.
Fraud did not duro to attempt to carry out
his well laid schemes ami law was tri
umphant. Thcro was nothing to bo desired
regarding the weather mid a full veto re
sulted. Whllo the 'work at the polls was
earnest and some challenging was douogood ,
order prevailed ,
The Women's Prohibition league spoilt
seine tinio at the different urcclncts , and
several hundred children marched In proces
sion to the different polls and sang appropri
ate songs. The eyes of all South Dakota
have boon anxiously turned upon Sioux Palls
to-day , and the president of the State Pro
hibition league offered u reward for oviduiico
of Illegal voting , but fortunately the election
has been u fairly honest ono.
This city polled 2,174 votes , which I mil.
c.ites an honest election.
This city will give live or six hundred ma
jority against prohibition , but the anti-pro-
hlbitionlsts admit their defeat In tlio state.
The capital contest is closo.
- Democracy Downed.
HISMUICK , N. D. , Oct. 1. ( Special Tola-
gram to TiicUKC. ] The day has boon fair ,
and in all probabilities a full vote has been
polled at this the tirst state election m North
The returns thus far received indicate tnat
the entire reoublican ticket 1ms been elected ,
although the democratic central comunttco
claim that tlio result in the congressional
light is still in doubt. The claim is not well
founded , us the returns from numerous
counties show increased republican majori
ties anil indicatu u rcpubltu.ui victory by
between eight and ton thousand majority.
The three associate. Justices of the
supreme court huvo a still larger
majority , us the democrats had
nut two o anuidates in the Hold and made no
Hunt on this point. The democrats claim
that Hansbrough's majority for congress is
less tli an three thousand , but the returns
from the western part of the state show that
ho has polled the party strength. Returns
on ttio legislative tioUot are meagre , but tlio
tleures thus far received satisfy the republi
cans that they huvo elected a largo majority
and tli nt the democrats will not have more
than twenty members of the ninety-two.
It is u clean sweep for republicans , unless
the returns from the northwestern coun
ties , which are looked upon as democratic
strongholds , shall change the tide. These
counties have not beou heard from at this
hour (10:20 ( p. in. ) . The republicans have n
majority of 3,000 in the counties thus far
hoard from ,
In the western part of the state prohibi
tion has been snowed under by an over
whelming majority , and although the prohi
bitionists prosecuted a vigorous campaign in
thn eastern counties the reports show that
they have bucn defeated there. The majority
against prohibition is not large , but It is suf-
Hull-lit to settle the question in the stato.
The constitution is adopted by a rousing
majority , and North Dakota is now ready to
step into the union with a republican In every
olilco. The successful candidates are : For
congress , H. S. HanHbraugh , of Uamsoy
county ; governor , John Millar , of Illchiand
county ; lieutenant governor , Alfred Dickey ,
of Stutsmnn ; secretary of state , John Flit-
tor. of Fraill ; state treasurer , E. L. Brooiccr ,

for congress will not run 300 behind.
It says tno legislature cannot bo forecast ,
but is confident of a republican majority.
The Journal says the country districts show
largo republican gains over Carter's major
ity of 5 0 last year , and the returns from
IJutto and Deer Lodge cannot overcome the
republican country districts. The result
cannot be surely given before to-morrow.
The Outlook : at Slidnllit ; ,
ST. P.IVL , Oct. 1. At midnight the re
turns to tlio Glebe ( dom. ) indicate that
Washington elected n republican' governor
aud congressman by ,000 majority , and the
legislature by lUtoen majority. Montana is
close , with the probabilities in favor of
the democrats , who ueem to hnvo
elected the governor and legislature.
The congressman Is in doubt ,
with Carter ( rep. ) running ahead of his
ticket. In Nor'h ' Dakota the democrats cnt
three Judges and f.venty-lhroo members of
the legislature. The veto on prohibition is
close. In bouth Dakota the republicans get
a clean sweep.

During the last days of President Clove-
land's administration the government's
loans to national banks increased to about
General Harrison , during the campaign ,
promised that the amount should bo de
creased , since It Is well known most of the
loans were made to favor politicians and
were not In the Interest of the people. That
promise Is being fulllUcd. The aggregate
has been decreased to about $15,000,000 r.lnco
March , and before congress convenes it will
come down niuoh further , to probably
$25,000,000 , und perhaps one-half of what it
Is at present. This money , as It piles up in
the treasury , is being applied as rapidly ns
posslblo to the purchase of outstanding
bonds , and the application of the mono/
to the purchase of bonds in the open
market Is so greatly in excess of the reduc
tion of the loans to the national banks that no
fear can possibly bo entertained in any quarter - -
tor that the calling in of the loans will dis
tress or iifTcct the monov market. It may
affect thu volume of the operating funds of n
few national banks , but It can not In the
least degree nmko an Impression upon the
circulating medium of the country. It is sim

the hands of national banks and putting it

given thorn this morning wlien an injunction

must remain in cold storage thirty days , but
they contend that it is deliverable on con

PMII.MIII'IIIA : , Oct. 1. The iinnunl meet
ing of Iho National Civil Service Reform
league , of which Ooorgo William Curtis is
president , began here this afternoon. After
the transaction of routine business the dele
gates sat down to tut informal banquet ton-
dcrcd them by the local association. George
William Curl's presided. This evening
President Curtis delivered his annual ad
dress at association ball. There wus a Targe '
audience prosont. The following is u syi0i- | |
sls of the address :
Sinceotif last annual meeting the second
party change in the administration of the
national government has occurred. Seven
months of the now ud'jihustration have
passed , and as friends of civil service reform
our questions to-day are obvious and simple.
What was the declaration of the successful
party upon the subject of reform ! What
were the pledges of its candidates ) How
have those pledges been fulfilled , and what
are the prospects ol reform ?
The irrepressible platform pledged the
party to many things , but , to nothing with
such reduplicated and reiterated /ojl as to
reform in the civil service ; and having done
this in the most precise and positive words ,
it pledged the party with especial fervor to
keep Us pledges.
To the ardor of Ihe platform the protesta
tions of the president , as a candidate , fitly
and fully responded. Ho declared that it
would bo his sincere purpose , if elected , to
advance reform. Ho said that , fitness und
not party service should lie iho essential test
in appointment , that fidelity und ofllcloncy
should be the only sure tenure of ofllco , uu\
that only tlio Interest of the public service
should suggest removals from olllcii.
How , then , have the pledges of the suc
cessful party und candidate been fulfilled !
Have fidelity and fiflleieni'y proved to bo the
sure tenure ol ofllcei Has fitness nnd not
parly HOI vice been the essential lest In de
termining appointments i Has the interest
of the public service alone dictated removals
from olllcci Has the gicat pledge of the
platform that the spirit and purpose of re
form should be observed in all executive ap
pointments been honorably fulfilled ! Or
have such appointments generally boon made
precisely us tl.o.v would have boon made had
there been no platform , romiscs , no pledges
of tlio candidate and no public Interest In
civil service reform I
The knowledge of every citizen in Ins own
community answers. The daily record of
the nowsimpars , for seven mouths answers.
The ( jonor.il political proscription ; the policy
which President Harrison when a senator
defined as "tlio frank and bold , If hrutu ) ,
method of turning men and women out
simply for poli'Ic.il opinioni" the clean
pwccp which Is proceeding In the postofllco ;
the alarm which pervades every brunch of
the Horvieo ; the open , flagrant con
tempt for public opinion , for private
Information , und for the party promise ,
which was shown In the appointment of the
hue commissioner of pensions ; the executive
refusal to include thu eon DUB service In the
r les and the removal of public ollleerH con
spicuously lilted by character , ability and ox-
purionco , who have absolutely and confess
edly disregarded politics In tholr devotion to
ofllclul duly and the public service , all these
facts , and such as these , answer the ques
tion , how has thu executive action conformed
to the party promise and the president's
AH with all progress worth fighting for ,
tuo contest Is stubborn and resolute , Delays
and defeats are Inevitable , but temporary ,
The advance Is sure. The thumloi-M of the
church did not persuade Galileo that the
earth did not move , and the roar of the party
machine and the gross violation of publiu
pledges by the president , the postmaster
general , by senators and reprosontuUvos In
congress , by parly commitloos and local
leaders , all of which we have heard und
seen before , do not convince tm that the
reform sentiment of the country Is not
stronger every day ,
