CATTLE There wa a moderate run of
cattle here today arid the trade aa a whole
in a very satisfactory condition, although
there was no material change in any direc-,
Hon. The market aa a whole was devoid
of new or interesting feature and in con
sequence there is very little to be said re
garding the day a operations.
Beef nceri were la fair request aa usual
all the wee and they sold in pretty fair
season ' In the morning, prices paid were
generally about steady with yesterday,
there being, as noted aoove. no - great
change either up or down. Most of the of
ferings changed hands in pretty fair sea
son and the market as a whole was aaua
factory to selling interests. . .
Cows and heifer were also In rood de
mand and they, too, commanded steady
prlcea the mom of the stuff changieg
hands in very fair season. The supply was
not overly large and ha cot been any day
so far this week.
There were only a few stockers and feed
era here, but there waa sufficient demand
10 maintain good steady prices, and the
market a a whole wa In about the same
condition aa waa detailed yesterday.

Tbu those who got tne full benefit of im

From report which ar gaining circula

session will be aaked to make thi atate
a cat's-paw to pull But from tb fire
for ismi syndicate of North Carallna
bondholder and will use th old Taylor
defalcation as bait for their purpose.
Just who 1 back of th move remains to
yet be revealed. Tb report 1 that Tay
lor 1 to turn over to the state a block
of North Carolina bond to make up the
deficit from hi defalcation a atat
treasurer, and in return is to receive cer
tain property secured by th atat a
result of such defalcation.
Any such present of bonds mean that
th state is to bring suit to teat th
validity of th eame, and may or may
not win after tha expenae of th suit.
At the earn time th holding syndicate
would sit back and reap th benefits If
the state should win in any suit brougnt
Less than two year ago a bender of
fl, 001 08 of such aecurilles wa made
to th atate oa agreement that ult be
brought to collect, but tb offer was
turned down by Governor Crawford. Sev
eral year ago the atat did accept a gift
of 125,0(10 of th securities of that Late,
and secured payment after a sruit ta tb
supreme court of the United Stata. re
ceiving the money, le attorneys' fee,
and at the earn time Schaffcr Broa. of
New Tork secured th validity of tbelr

the benefit. At the session of two year
ago Senator Dillon introduced a bill to
return the money to North Carolina, but
tt failed to paaa. Th money ao aecarad
yet lie In th atate treasury, but the
temper of the legislature, aa abown In
th discussion two years ago, would not
Indicate any desire to mak another try
