LONDON , Oct. 29. ( Now York World Ca
blegram-Special Telegram. ) "HverythlnB
points to an Improved market for wheat
until a succession of bounteous harvests
drives prices down again , " said the editor
of the Mark Lane Kxprcss , the oldest es
tablished , most Influential organ of the
Drltlsh farmer , at his ofllcc In the Strand
today , to the World representative. "The
considerations rcspcctl'm ; the Argentine.
Kast Indian and Australian crops arc chlclly
conjectural. My judgment Is formed apart
"Tho rise In the price of wheat Is legiti
mate , the result of natural causes. It has
been anticipated by nil concerned In the
market for some time , but It came earlier
and the Jump has been greater than was
expected. The suddenness of the rise was
duo to speculation In options. The reac
tion now taking place proves that the ad
vance was premature. This week the mar
kets have dropped and I ahould not bo
BUrpriEcd If this continued for a week or
two. Hut prices will go up again and If
Americans do not glut the EuglUh market
they will advance to higher figures than
have yet been reached. 1 have been ad
vising the Urltlsh farmer for some tlmo
lo hold whcnt. Those who nro able to do
EO , ilhl lie-Id on , but the farmers here , lu
the main , arc In no belter plight than the
farmers In America nnd most of them have
been compelled to sell to pay rents.
"Tho advance In prices Is fully warranted
by the situation. In Its origin , It was not
speculative , although speculators rushed In
nnd drove It beyond what was rcasonabU'
for the moment. The world had no largo
supply of wheat to dispose of and England
had dangerously depleted granaries. After
the first rush prices are steadying now ,
and a good level will be maintained through
"The Argentine prospects , according to my
lalcut advices , arc good , unless lute October
frosts spoil the crop. The failure of the
Argentine crop , of course , would appre
ciably affect the market.
"I am no believer In any heavy Import of
wheat Into India , but It Is now practically
reitnln that the Indian supplies cannot bo
counted upon , and some wheat ami mnl/.e
must be Imported to make up for the fail
ure of both the rice and wheat crops.
"Had weather hero has greatly delayed
the sowing of cprlng wheat. This Is true ,
not only In England , but of the continent.
Unless the weather plcka up , November
sowing may bo Jeopardized. Although wo
can sow In the spring , It In not as good as
doing It In October or November. This
may affect the European crops next year ,
nnd again give the American farmer a dc-
advantage. " MALLARD SMITH.

NEW YORK , Oct. 2a. The approach of
the election waa Blgnalhcd In financial cir
cles hero loday by n rapid and remarkable
advance In the money market. Soon after
the opening of the exchange for business
today there was n great demand for cal
money , which opened nt 10 per cent , 1 per
cent higher than the average rate yester
day , when It lluctuatcd between 7 and 12
per cent. By leaps nnd bounds the rate
advanced until at noon 50 per cent waa
demanded for cash loatm. The demand sent
the rates up until late In the day , whei
100 per cent was naked nnd SO bid. This
was the . closing quotation. The jump to
100 per cent began gradually and proceedci
amid much excitement. The first loan wan
made at 10 per cent anil the rate then ail
vanced to 1C and finally , about 2:30 : p. in.
n broker , who wanted money , was compellei
to bid Ihe rule up to 50 per cent befort
ho could secure the required accommodation
The price then lluctuatcd between 40 nm
CO per cent. Ilusincs.s was only moderate ,
ns offerings of funds were extremely light
As the demand for money Increased the price
asked Increased by tens from C > 0 to CO , then
to TO , until the maximum waa reached.
The Immedlato cause of the stringency
was the calling of loans by sonic of the
banks that wished to prepare themselves for
possible large demands tomorrow. Loans
made on Friday go over until Monday , ac
cording to the custom nf the street although
the banks legally have the right to cal
money on nny day of the week. The banks
as a rule , are reserving their surplus fumln
for the accommodation of their regular cus
tomers , who arc being supplied at G per cent
In proportion to the business dene by them
. The stringency was nol especially due to
shipments of funds to the Interior , as the
volume of this business has not cxcccdci !
the average of last week , flankers report
nharp Inquiry for funds for their regular
clients and a sympathetic hardening In
fluence on the money market was excrteil
by a report of an Increase In demands for
cash gold , Dulllon brokers advanced the
commission premium on gold 3-ic per cent
to Uifp-li per cent.
Predictions nre current In the street of
materially higher figures In money tomor
row , but Borne leading bankers express the
opinion that the worst of the Hurry has been
seen. Money has not been so high since
the Baring panic omo years ago , when It
wont skyward In the same way.

WILKESUARRE. I'a. , Oct. 29. A terrible
explosion of gas occurred In No. 3 mine of
the Lchlgh and Wllkcsbarre Coal company ,
South Wllkesbarre , between 1 and 2 o'clock
this afternoon. Six men nro known to bo
dead and three Injured. It Is not yet known
tow many were In the mine at the time
of the explosion , but twelve are- reported
Hissing and It Is believed all of thcso have
wished. The dead who have been brought
; o the surface are :
WILLIAM n. JONES , fire boss.
JOHN JOSEPH , assistant mine foreman.
THOMAS OWENS , miner.
WILLIAM LACEY , rock miner.
JAMES HEIIRON. laborer.
JOSEPH WORTH , flro boss.
The Injured , so far as known , arc :
David Williams , overcome by black
John Davis , overcome by black damp.
The cause of the explosion will probably
never be known. The mine was Idle for
the day. Usually there are from -100 to
SOO men employed In the mine. Had they
all been at work when the explosion oc
curred the loss of llfo would have been
very large. The only men In the mine
this afternoon were the company hands and
bosses , who were at work In the rock tun
nel , changing the air course. The place
was very gaseous and the men worked with
safety lamps. Jt Is believed the gas was
Ignited by a blast. David Williams , the
driver boss , was nt the head of the slope ,
500 feet away , when the explosion occurred
and was hurled some distance and Injured.
Ho was the only one In that vicinity who
The explosion was BO severe that It was
plainly felt at the north of the shaft. Thereof
roof of the fan house was blown away. The
alarm was promptly given and hundreds of
men , women and children rushed to the
head of the shaft. The grief of the wo
men who had husbands , sons , or brothers In
the ralno was heartrending. The work of
organizing rescue gangs was begun without
delay. It was n perilous undertaking , as
the ccqucl proved , but no man faltered.
I'iro Hess William K. Jones and Assistant
Mine Foreman John Joseph selected thu men
for the first party and themselves led the
way. All were overcome by the dread
afterdamp , but not until they had found
Driver Hess David Williams. All except
Joseph succeeded In reaching the foot of the
shaft and were removed to the surface , but
the old fire boss.WIlllnm H. Jones , succumbed
to the deadly firedamp and died In halt on
hour after being brought out , despite the
efforts of doctors to save his life.
John Joseph , the other hero , became sep
arated from the llrst party , and the second
rescuing party found his body and removed
It to the surface at 2:30 : o'clock. A num
ber of company men who were working In
a different part of the mine reached the sur
face by the No. 5 shaft and also by another
The bodies of Thomas Owens , William
I.uccy , James Ilcrroii and John Worth , who
were at work In the rock tunnel , were found
at 9 o'clock. They were horribly burned
ar.d hardly recognizable. The rescurcrs
nro now at work clearing the tunnel In the
expectation of finding more bodies. It
Is believed , however , that six Is the total
number of dead.

NEW YORK , Oct. , 29. The Immigrant
traffic problem which has been perplexing
the eastern and western lines for many
years has been settled during a two days'
conference In this city between repre
sentatives of the transatlantic steamship
companies and the trunk and western lines.
The conclusion reached Is that the middle
men or first ward agents , who have grown
rich In the booking of Immigrants , must
go , and hereafter the railroad companies ,
both east and west , will co-operate with the
steamship companies In the hauling of the
The lunik lines have been dealing with the
first ward am.r.r for years , and have
been paying them a commission on the
business turned over. As a result of this
arrangement there has always been con
siderable friction between the Southern
Pacific and western lines. Repeated at
tempts have been made by western lines to
bring about an amicable understanding , but
the Southern Pacific , which hpd the Sea
board Air line as an eastern feeder , de
clined all terms of peace unless all agents
were abolished and the business was
handled exclusively by the steamship corn-
Under the now agreement the long standIng -
Ing differences between the Southern Pacific
and western lines will be ternilncd and
westbound Immigrant traffic will be equally
divided among all the Interested lines , after
January 1 , next. Under the now arrange
ments the steamship companies will work
on the same basis of commissions as are
now allowed the middlemen , and will also
control prepaid orders.
