CHICAGO , Nov. 11. [ Special Telegram to

ley of objections and disapproval to tnoaction
of the world's fair commission In deciding
that no cash prizes shall bo offered. In the
dlscusion the president said : "Wo will ask
for cash prizes , and if wo don't get thora wo
can stay at homo with our' stock. Let's nsk
for $10,000. and if we don't got itvo don't '

Mr. Pickrcll of Illinois said ; "Wo must

The following distribution was finally
reached : Horses , 41 percent ; cattle , 25 per

Mr. Pickrcd introduced a lone resolution
to the effect that unless the commissioners

TIIP. Hin.J : 11. 0. Duu & Co.'s ' Weekly Uc-
view of Trade ssys :
The marvel today Is that the business
world has been able to stand with so Ilttlo
disturbance thus far. Such shock and strain
ns the past two weeks have brought , with
the assets of the largest commercial banking
house In Great Britain turned over to the
Bank of England , with several stock failures
hero nnd ono at Philadelphia nnd some sav
ings banks besieged by Ignorant depositors
iu a panic , the legitimate business of the
country has hardly been affected nt all as
yet. The stringency has affected some buy
ing , the diniculty of making foreign cx
change threatens to retard the movement of
cotton , and a moro conservative temper is
scon in trading , but everything thus fur indi
cates n sounder condition of legitimate busi
ness than many supposed. The collapse of
many great speculations has brought heavy
losses , but tbo public has not been taking
much part in such operations. It may
Ira hoped that the financial institutions ,
forced at last to drop speculations which ab
sorbed enormous capital , will have beoomo
more available after the storm has passed for
the u o of Indus'trv ' nnd commerce. British
losses by the shrinkage In South American
stocks , nitrates , cedillas and South African
securities are estimated -139,000,000 ; the
depression in American stocks since last
spring has involved a loss of moro than 200-
000,000. nnd in wheat and other products
losses have been heavy ; but tbo number of
failures up to this Umo has been smaller than
was apprehended.Vhilo the money markets
are generally tight , thcro is still no unusual
complaint as to collections , though renewals
and rediscounts have been lartro.
The volume of business continues to ex
ceed that of any previous year at all clearing
houses outsldo of Now York about 18J per
cent for the month thus far. Exports have
been checked at New York , falling 0 per
cent below last year's for the month , but
the imports here In half of November exceed
last year's by S3 per cent. Prices are yield
ing , which will help exports of products.
Wheat has fallen 4 cents during tbo week ,
corn about 'J cents and oats zyt cents. Sales
of 4o,000,000 bushels of wheat hero indicate
largo liquidation. Cotton has fallen } cent ,
coffee a , J < J cent , oil 4J cents , i > ork 75 cents
per barrel and hogs HO cents per 100 pouuds.
Sugar Is also } & cent lower , tin Is demoral
ized , lead weaker , and no takers are reported
for copper at llijf cents. The general aver
age of prices has fallen 1) ) per cent this
month , but is still about 7 per cunt above
that of the same date last year.
Yet neither the shrinkage in prices nor the
stringency in the money market can bo at
tributed to the operations of the treasury ,
which has put out duringl the WCCK ? 200- , ! ! ,
000 mere of the new silver notes whllo taking
in only $200,000 of other forms of money.
The volume of currency In circulation
outside the treasury is now over $1,500,000,000
against $1,415.000,000 a year ego , but there
are very few interior markets at which moro
or less stringency is not reported. Baltimore ,
I'ittsburg and Galveston are exceptions ,
being well supplied ; but Chicago and most
other points , whllo the demand is sharp , no
trouble is reported.
Reports of trade from other states are en
couraging. The south is moving the largest
crop of cotton over grown , and wnllo ex
change cause ? some embarrassment , the
movement Is'rapid. Sugar comes in largely
at good prices , nnd the receipts of molasses
at Now Orleans arc liberal at some decline ,
with moderate receipts of rice. Trade is
healthy at Memphis , Louisville , Atlanta nnd
Galvt-ston , although in Texas lower prices
cause some country failures. Baltimore notes
no disturbance because of eastern trouble ,
and at St. Louis trade in all lines is good with
bright prospects. Trade ut Denver and
Kansas City is fair ; nt St. Paul , active ,
though a money pressure is felt ; at Milwaukee
and Detroit , good , except that mild weather
checks retail trade and the same cause cfleets
tno shoo trade at Cleveland ; Cincinnati reports -
ports manufacturers busy , dry goods fairly
active , and the carriage trade closing a very
profitable season ; PlUsburg notes fair busi
ness a * the mills , no change in Iron or steel ,
and a good trade In glass. Of tbo crcat cen
ters , Chicago fares tlio best , feeling eastern
troubles littlo. The movement of wheat and
corn is slightly less than for the same week
last year ; cured meats , lard , butter and
cheese larger , and oats nearly double , but In
dressed beef and hides thcro is a heavy decline.
The dry goods trade enimU last year and the
trade ir clothing and shoes is ending a prollt-
Even at Boston and Philadelphia the qrcat
failures are felt less in commercial circles
than might have been expected. At Phila
delphia money is tight nnd commercial paper
almost unsaleable , but the trade In wool im-
'proves. In groceries trade is goou , though
in tea and coffee dull ; in "produce trade is
fair , though collections arc slow ,
Boston notes a very qulot wool market.
Lumber Is in very fair demand , and prices of
boots and shoes are firm , though some grades
of leather are lower nnd hides ere depressed.
On the whole , the commercial outlook is de
cidedly moro favorable than might have been
expected , and while tlio demand for Icon and
rails is slack , buyers holding off as far ns
possible , the producers of the finished form
of iron and steel nro generally well occupied
and prices do not decline.

the corresponding week of last year the
figures were 277.

When the coffee was served and the cigars
were lighted , Mr. J. N" . II. Patrick , president
of the association , made a short speech ,
setting forth the alms nnd purposes of the
orpuii/atloti. He stated that the association
intended to erect a'fine building in this city ,
devoted to nrt , muslo and literature. The
llrst floor is to bo occupied by
the frco public library , and on
the second floor will be a gallery
in which it is designed to establish a , police-
tiou of the finest paintings to be scoured.
The speaker said that some of the works of
art would bo secured by purchase , but far
more by gift , as there are scores of Omaha
citizens who would contribute to this end.
and inany of the loading artists of
the country would willingly give
ono or moro of their works.
he said that It was desired to foster and ad
vance n higher nnd nobler civilization. The
time has come when the citizens are not so
completely engrossed in the nock and neck
struggle for Individual weal'.h , and moro time
can be devoted to the advancement of art , seas
as to put Omaha oven in this respect on a
plane with the largest cities of the countrv.
The enterprise is Intended to benefit not only
Omaha , but the whole state ns well , so that
the citizens of this commonwealth may hu\o
a place , when they visit the metropolis. In
which to pleasantly and profitably pass bomu
of their leisure moments.
Dr. George L. Miller was introduced as the
first speaker of the evening. Ho bald :
"This occasion demands no introduction or
instructions. It found its origin on the part
of the needs of the city In the train of the
gentleman who has just addressed you. He
has taken up this work andthero is no one in
this city better able to make it the grand suc
cess that we all hope to see it. I am glad to
pay this personal tribute to my friend of
thirty-five years. His IIOTCO is the home
of the modest and the beautiful. He
has traveled extensively and can thoioughly
judge'and appreciate art Ho has honored
this city and himself in this splendid demon
stration hero tonight. In order to percei\
tlio highest points in sculpture and art , we
must bo In constant contact with It. In Italy
even the peasants are educated to It. It Is in
the atmosphere. Art brings us nearer to that
great power that makes all things beautiful ,
The fathers and mothers of this city owe it
to their sons and daughters not to allow this
occasion to pass without seuilig to it that its
betu'llts and refining influences are perma
nently assured for Omaha. The voice of
ever/ man bore ought to bo raised in praise
of this project , which was seme tlmo ago so
auspiciously inaugurated by Mr. George W.
"I want to refer hero to thefact that tonight
ono of our mostdistlnguishedcitl/.cns is lying
on his death bed. Judge Savage Is a man of
culture and all that Is true and pure in man
hood. When such men die n city should go
into mourning. Ho began organisation
with his neighbors , that he will not live to
even see through its incipiency. I want to
renew my expression of hope that the citi
zens of Omaha will push this enterprise until
the fondest hopes of my friend Patrick are
realised , "
Judge Wakeloy was Introduced"not ns nn
artist of the brush , but of the law. " Ho
' ' 1 don't itnow why you call on mo unless It
Is because you want short speeches , because
it would only take a very short time for mete
to tell all I know about art. All men nro born
with moro or less of aa inspiration for
art , but I have never been
quite certain how it was with myself.
by an untowayd circumstance my aspirations
were chilled and discouraccd early in life.
My memory takes me back to a longtime ago ,
when I attended school In a primitive school
house in western Now York. I undertook to
cultivate art. I had a slight knowledge of it
and r slate and pencil , and I practiced nrt
when the master was not looking. I once
worked for three or four days of ono week
drawing the picture of a celebrated race
horse , which I did not know personally , but
by reputation. I worked him up to n high
state of perfection , nnd then I finally showed
my work to the teacher. When 1 saw nis
smile of satisfaction I made up my mind not
to bo too muctt elated by prabo , nnd ho then
told mo it was a llrst rate camel , but the
hump ought to have been a little larger.
But for the cniel remark of that unappreciative -
appreciative critic the world might
have gained a great artist and
been saved a pool1 lawyer. After that time I
gave my full time nnd attention to mathe
matics , law and whist.
"Tho lawyers ought to bo good artists.
They draw largely on their imaginations.
Sometimes I am compelled to listen to aerial
flights of imaginary law , but the soberness of
the decision about ovens that up.
"It is Indeed true that what wo see hero is
a demonstration of the evolution of tbo
human race and of municipalities , states and
nations. Wo know Ilttlo of primitive man ,
yet wo know that when ho first came on this
planet of o'urs ho largely followed the In-
sllncls of animal passion. Next It was his
physical ucccssllics , then his physical
comforts , next physical luxuries nnd
later and last the cultivation of
the aesthetic phaio of human nature.
Wo have only to go back thirty-live years to
see the difference In this city and In Its homos
to oppcclnto what you have hero , and see tbo
change from a rude primitive state to a pros
perous , growing city. The names of the per
sons interested in this association are a sulll-
cleat guaranty that it Is not intended for per
sonal aggrandizement , but to el ova to the tone
ot sentiment of the community , and give an
opportunity to exercise tastes for thu devel
opment of art. it is n philanthropic purpose ,
and should bo an artistic and aesthetic suc
cess. " *
.ludgo Clarkson spoke In a humorous strain
for several minute * . Ho said : "Tlmo hero ,
tofore has been too much Unvoted to building ,

his follow men , These gentlemen have done
more for the better part of Omaha's society
than anything else that they could
have conceived. So long ns the
theory continues that man is nil
restlessness nnd activity , so long will civil
ization bo ret arced. This project should bo
made a success tills year nnd years to come. "
lion. E. Kosowater was then introduced nt
the oldest editor and editor of the leading
paper of the state. Ilosald :
"As i listened to the Icurncu Judge who pre
ceded mo it struck mo that n prophet Is not
without honor In his own country. The
author of the burlesque on Ital
ian and German opera that bo so
humorously rendered was written bv a former
Omaha ma'n and editor , Mr. t'Yod Nyc. Ho
had to go away from homo to Hud thu artist ,

ber of prominent and not all rosncctablo citi
zens. They were- there to partnlw of a din

ger , who was honored with the
nomination for mayor of this cltv.
The guests wore the members of tlio republi
can city convention. My wife asked mo ,
when 1 returned home how I had enjoyed my
self , and I replied , 'N ' ot exactly ivs I could
wish.1 Two pictures hung In front of mo
one of David slaying Cioliah , nnd the other of
the young head of St. John on n plate , being
presented to Horodlns. It was an omen o
what was to follow.
"Tonight I see In front of mo a picture of a
beautiful woman with a babe before her
about to awake. It may bo another onion.
Omaha Is the woman and the babe is this
new art association. I trust as the years go
by"thc babe will prosper and bo n credit to
the mother. The genius of art Is all right ,
but where you want genius you want the
public spirit that will plank down $10.000
to encourage an Institution like this.
The interest in increasing bank clearings
should take crystallized form in the shape of
artworks from abroad , and the works of the
fricat American artists who are now com
manding attention abroad. It hat taken but
u short time to pass through the phase of the
increase In tills city's population from n few
thousands to IfiU.OX ) , and many of us will
bo hero when this new art nnd
music hall will bo conplutcd. The
counterpart of the Springer who gave to
Cincinnati its greatest encouragement in art
making it the second art city iu the country ,
will bo found hero in Omah'a. I hope more
editors from abroad will bo here then to
recognize the fact that Omaha citizens live
for something moru than merely what they
shuli eat and drink. "
Hon. J. L. Webster made an excellent
speech , In which ho-advocntod throwing open

that it would hoof as great benefit to visit it
iis anything that the pconlo could do on that
day of rest.

Argument Itofiiro the Supreme Court
Against Kleulr < Uuticm. !
WASiciNdTON" , Nov. 21. The case 6f the
Japanese murderer , Jugiro , sentenced to
death by electricity in New York , was
argued before the United States supreme
court today , Roger M , Sherman , who was
counsel for Kommlor , represented
Jugiro , basing the application for a
writ of habeas corpus on the ground
that the execution of Kcnimlor demonstrated
that electrocution was not im instantaneous
and painless method of death ; that it violates
the provision of the federal constitution for
bidding cruel nnd unusual punishment , etc.
Sherman spoke at length , leading
newspaper rcporU about the death of
Ktmuilcr. Ho asserts that there is
grave doubt whether artificial electricity
generated under the present scientific condi
tions will invariably cause death. Sherman
was frequently Interrupted with questions
bv .Tustico Field and Justice 1rawer.
When the former suggested that in New
York persons had been killed In a
snort time by accidental contact with
electrlo light wires Sherman narrated the
case of a lineman who did not die for some
tlmo after receiving the shock.
Attorney General Tabor , for Now York
state , replied , Ho declared that the trial of
the Kommlcr case and the practical execution
of the law had nettled the whole question of
constitutionality , As ho understood it , either
hanging or electricity had too inucli cruelly
