.iV Vuf;K. Nov. 22. Dealings In
stoiVs laal week contracted to a dally
average or but little more than 1.000,000
hares ut the New York Stock exchunge,
compared with the average of upwards
of 1.600.000 shares a day for the week
preceding. Coupled with thla diminution
in the activity of the market there grew
up a degree of uncertainty In the price
movement In contraet with the uniformly
trout upward movement which had pre
vailed nine the presidential elections.
These facts regtatered the soberer view
of the proepect for enhancement . of
value growing out of the Improvement
In business and financial conditions and
the apprehension that the speculative
pac had bten overrunning Itself. There
Is no trace perceptible here of any fears
for the ultimata prospect for Increase
of prosperous conditions. The convic
tion remains unaltered that the situation
la adjusted to a steady resumption of
business and Industrial activity In all
lines. It is believed that In the dis
counting the expected Improvement In
the stock market speculation and In the
weakening of the technical position of
the stock market by that process that
the sources of dlstruat have been found.
In ore or two fields of Industry there
Vera signs of danger that the speculative
cnlhiiKlmni was outrunning the present
condition, alao.
Curb to Overapeeulutlon.
The substantial financial elements
among it the bankers and large capital
ists were Inclined to votca a warning
against this tendency and tp deprecate
an attempt to enter upon a sudden boom
of Industry And business and threaten
ing unhealthy accompaniments which
might endanger the permanence of tho
betterment. It was the well-Informed
assumption In the financial district that
It was from such sources that the sup
ply of securities tor eale came which
put a check on the advanclng course of
prices and led to the later reduction. Ac
cumulation of stocks by Interests with
extensive Information and tiabtt of lead
ership In affairs began early In the sum
mer In anticipation of the coming re
vival. The restoration of general con
fidence which followed the elections
.brought Into the market a miscellaneous
tplemand which afforded a medium for
'distribution of these accumulations at
large profits. The process waa pursued
with skill and- caution and undoubtedly
with manipulative accompaniment In the
stock market. Another Incentive to con
version of stock holdings Into cash Is tho
preparation for largo Issues of new capi
tal which are coming out. The ranama
canal bond Issue of the United States
nniitiii. the New York City bond
Issue, a Coresn-Japanese loan ind an
Indian loan In Ixindon are cases In point.
Many Band lasaes Coming.
The Illinois Central bond Issue and I
PI llipplne railroad Issue In New York are
the preliminaries to a long line or im
norUnt applications for new capital from
railroads which are locked for In the New
York market. These Issues are applied
for with avidity as they are offered and
this evidence of the large supply of capital
available makes one of the most Important
fsc-.ors toward the revival of the situation.
Tho tr.r.sf-r of capital out of holdings of
older securities at the present high prices
Inir the newer Issues at more attractive
prices Is, however. Inevitable.
New capital Issues and Increased needs
of a commercial activity are expected to
absorb added amounts of money and
crtclts. The money n arket Itself has
shown but alight effect from thcee In
fluences. The previous wetk's hardening
f time money rates has given' place to
cine reaction.

These decreases. It will he noticed, have
gradually been getting less, until last month
the export!) were only down 55,477 9s lid.
Cotton-made goods have been largely re
sponsible for these large decreases, though
other wares help to swell the volume.
That the decrease will be wiped out
within the next few months Is fully be
lieved by Major Chuich Howe, who told a
Dally Dispatch representative that already
since the result was known one American
firm In Manchester had purchased In the
Manchester district and shipped to America
some 15,000 worth of goods.
Merchants In the states, he explainer!,
have been waiting to see whether Mr.
Bryan or Mr. Taft was returned, because
of the effect the result would have on the
tariff. Mr. Bryan's party practically stood
for free trade, as the tariffs they advocated
were so small, while Mr. Taft's supporters,
though advocating a revision of tariffs,
were still believers In protection.
Under these circumstance It could easily
be seen that a merchant would rather de
plete his stocks than run the risk, of a
contingency he knew not of.
The election fever, which had Interfered
with business a good deal, was now over.
The "firm was at the old stand." and the
country waa now settled for four years.
The prospects were bright for British trade.

GRAND JIIIV FOltEMAV
ANOTHER BOMB IN CHICAGO
Man Vno Has Losg Pussled the
Peltc Blows V Twenty
81s Buildings.
CHICAGO. Nov. 12, The mysterious
bomb-thrower, who for two years has
eludvd and pussled the Chicago police, to
night threw a bomb on the roof of a build
ing occupied by John D. Gaxiolo's saloon
In West Madison street. Although no on
wt injured, part of the root was torn out,
windows were broken and the report was
heard for blocks. People In adjoining build
ings. Including fifty women In a charitable
Institution, rushed frantically to the street.
This Is the twenty-sixth bomb which the
culprit has hurled at alleged gambling re.
sorts. As has been his custom, the thrower
called up a newspaper office to make public
the fact of the explosion.
"Have you lteird that Qaszolo's place has
bten blown up?" he said.
"It Is a wreck and I Just saw ambulances
going there." -
Tli police endeavored without avail to
traie the man by calling out the owners
of nearby telephones. The owner of the
saloon asserted thst no gambling had been
going on there and the police, as In pre-
vlous Instances, reported the explos.on to
hate teen caused by a giant firecracker.

which was her husband -to-be. sentenced

Saturday pardoned by Governor Cum
mins are the facts In the peculiar expe-
rience or Mrs. R. W. Hughes of this
county, who waa formerly Rose Daw-
Son. The facts of the marriage, which
had been kept secret for several years.
was made public today when the pardon
was received here.
IA 1903 Rose Dawson, who waa then a
domestic In the employ of Mrs. Frod
Mopklns. stole rings and jewels from the
Hopkins home of a value of 1100. She
was arrested In Peoria and returned to
this city. R. w. Hughes of near Luray
was the foreman of the grand Jury that
inaictea ner. After her Indictment, when
the grand Jury was making Its annual
Inspection of the Jail, Hughes met the
Dawson girl, who was but 19. while he
was past 10. The girl was tried anJ
convicted and sentenced to three years
In the Anmiius penitentiary. Later she
was paroled by Governor Cummin. The
Impression she had made on Hughes,
when the grand Jury visited the Jail, was
lasting. The acquaintance under the pe
culiar circumstances developed into an
Intimacy. Then Hughes sold liU farm
and left the atate. Less .than three
months after the girl waa paroled. It
developed today, she and Hughea were
married. They kept their marriage a
secret until today, when they were happy
to announce It now that the girl has
been pardoned. The couple Is now living
near Luray.
gress. appointed before the adjournment
of the last session, will meet In the rooms
of the senate committee on finance to hear
reports from the subcommittees appointed
at Narraganset Pier last July, and to de
termine upon Its future course.
There Is no program arranged beyond the
meeting tomorrow, and members generally
expect that comparatively little work will
be undertaken during the approaching ses
sion of congress.
The members have seen enough since the
commission came Into existence to justify
Ihe conclusion that a work of the magni
tude of that undertaken must be proceeded
with most deliberately.
The subcommittee, consisting of Benators
AldrleH. Hale. Knox and Daniel, and Rep
resentatives Vreeland. Overstreet, Overman
and Padgett, which visited Europe In be
half of the commission, will report the re
sult of Its Investigations In Iondon, Paris
and Berlin. This report will consist In the
main if printed copies of the testimony
taken In those centers. No recommendation
will be made. The committee which was
designated to conduct certain branches of
the Inquiry In the United States has been
giving attention to the administrative fea
ture of American banking and will make
some recommendations looking to Immedi
ate changes In the law regulating the gov.
ernmental supervision of national banks.
Present Indications are that the full com
mittee will accept these suggestions.
'Before presenting a final report the com
mission will hear the testimony of a num
ber of American financiers and will also
make thorough Inquiry Into the Scotch and
Canadian banking systems.

DID COBBLER LEAPE M0NEY7
Question Arises Over Remnrlc Made
by Edward Pplndler Before
Death.
That Edward Splndler. the old German
cobbler who was found dead In bed In his
room at 1823 North Twenty-fourth street
Saturday afternoon, has a small fortune
hid In his room or shoe shop Is thought by
Velghbors and other persons who knew him
to be a possibility.
This morning after the coroner's Inquest,
which will be held at 10 o'clock. It Is pro
posed that the coroner's Jury vlflt Swind
ler's plnssSi t9 residence and- bMetnn and
try to find any money or valuables that
may be hid away.
A recent remark by the old man to the
effect that he would like to go to a hos
pital for treatment and had money to pay
for It, Is the foundation of the Idea that
he may have left some money. His ac
quaintances say that he used to be most
saving In his purchases of food and tell
of how he would buy only 3 cents worth
of sauer kraut, or a nickel's worth of
bologna at a time. Other persons who live
near where Splndler roomed, say that he
had expressed a strong distrust of banks,
so it Is thought that he must have some
money hid among his possessions, as he
earned more than a living at his trade of
shoe repairing.
Saxonla lodge, an organization of Ger
mans, will have charge of the funeral,
which will take place at the Heafey under
taking rooms, 218 South Fourteenth street,
Monday afternoon at' 2 o'clock. Interment
will be In Laurel Hill cemetery at South
Omaha. It is said that Splndler had rel
atives In this country, but their names are
not known by his local friends or fellow
lodgemen. Even If It Is found that he
left any money, the expenses of his funeral
will he borne by the Saxonla lodge. In ac
cordance with Its constitution.

The advanced liberals, whose aim Is to

Education It will be decided whether to
award contracts to outside firms or
whether to give them to the lowest

View school to a St. Louis firm. Local
contractors and deleates from the plumb
ers' union appeared before the board and

Right Rev. Richard Scannell, bishop of
Omaha, , left the city last night for New

Ireland of St. Paul, he will sail Thursday
