THE YOUNG KING OF SPAM, Reported to be in a Bad State of Health. Bad Treatment of Buffalo Bill's Indiana. A Panaeky Market. By Associated Press.] NKW YORK, Nov. flood of alarming cables from London and Paris, predicting disastrous markets there this week ea'ised a panicky feel- ing in the Block exchange here. Long ?xsfore the opening, the brokers tried to make nates of stocks but could not find buyers, and as soon as the signal for the beginning of business was given, no offers were made, but every bid no matter at what price, was at once filled. This selling caused the .Man hat ten elevated to fall from 100 to 92, a' decline of 8 per cent.; Western Union fell and other stocks, with the exception of Yanderbilt's, fell from 2 to 0, and there were no buying orders in many of the specialties. The Wall-street stock market this morning showed the utmost demoral- ization and following the loud of Lon- don figures, opening prices were extremely low. The declines since Saturday afternoon were the largest ever seen over night, and the losses of fractional amounts with few exceptions drops from 1 to covered nearly the whole active list. There was more of a panicky feeling than has been no- ticed at any time during the present decline, and stocks were thrown over in the moat reckless manner, causing n most feverish and unsettled market liut with a steady decline in value. Even after the heavy opening, further declines of from 1 to 4 per cent were scored, the most prominent movement being a drop in Manhattan which after opening fell off 4 per cent at 96 retired 4 percent farther in the first few min- utes trading. Other notable losses of 3 per cent was in Western Union, in Pullman, and almost all active stocks, material amounts. The trad- ing reached enormous figures, but while the bottom seemed have drop- ped entirely out of the market, there came a more quiet feeling toward the end of an hour, and some stocks actual'y recovered a portion of the early loss. The market however, re- mained in an extremely feverish and unsettled condition and at 11, while less active, it was weak at or near the lowest prices for most of the stocks. The Evening Post's financial arti- cle says: "The panic in the stock market continues this morning in about the same temper as on Friday and Saturday, the declines ranging from 1 to G points in the first 15 min- utes business. Some very astute peo- ple regard it as significant that Man- hattan Elevated and Western Union were important factors in the depress- ion of all other prices. Whether the reported holdings by Wanamaker, who was a scheme for the postal tele- graph in opposition to the Western Union, any manipulation of Western Union which was quite ap- pflMnt, it was impossible to say, but it looks as though it had." Nevertheless, the panic received a fresh impetus from London this morn- ing. All stocks opened there at from to IJ-i lower than they closed here on Saturday, the latter being Union Pacific. Money was higher in London at noon, and all the great banks ot Europe appeared to be grabbing for the diminished supply of gold, some of which has gone to Spain and South America. At noon money was tight, with no offers and 15 bid. After 11 o'clock the heavy pressure was removed from the stock market to a certain extent, but stocks continued to come upon the market and prices continued to decline. The Grangers, the "Villards and New England were the chief sufferers in the decline. The market displayed no recuperative power up to noon, when business was arrested by the death by appoplexy of Jam-s Strath- ers, a member, on the floor of the exchange, when the market was active at the lowest prices of the morning. The Pacific Mail bore the banner for weakness, and with a drop of 2% touched The downward move- ment was then met with a check, and while there was less animation, as is usual when the pressure is removed, the whole list rallied materially, and before an hour the'most active stocks were brought tip to within about one per cent, of the opening figures. At the market was dull and quiet. At 3 o'clock the stock market bad maintained a moderate business in the last hour, and prices continued to ad- vance and gains of to were scored. Later, however, sugar, which bad been nearly neglected during the early portion of the day, came to the front With a sharp drop from 57 the general list was affected to some extent. The market finally closed active but weak. NEW YORK, Nov. Gould was asked this afternoon to give bis views regarding the great fall of prices in Wall street. Gould said: "There is, of course, as anyone can see by looking at the prices, a very great depression, but there is no doubt the market would have righted itself if the trouble in London had not come up. How much further they will go, I do not know. I only know that any- one who baa the courage to buy now and the patience to wait will make money. Bo far as I know anything about tbe different properties, espec- ially those that I am interested in, all right nnd there is no rea- son for the present low prices. I sup- pose BIX months from now we shall look back upon these prices, and, comparing them with the prices then, will say How ridiculously low they were.' History repeats itself. I have seen within the -last few days very good evidence of the amount of money going into Wall street to buy stocks, principally not on a margin, but out- right. This amount is likoly to in- crease, and when it gets BO that buyers are more numerous than sellers, the market will turn. The railroads are all doing very well- Tbe large move- ment of freight now going on is being carried at better rates and all the roads have a better understanding with each-other than for many years." LONDON, Nov. are weak to-day. At p. in. everything was lower. Canadian Pacific was off 13-4, St. Paul common, 31-8, New York Central 21-4, and others smaller amounts. CHICAGO, Nov. markets in the. Board of Trade this morning did not respond to the weakness in stocks in New York and London. The senti- ment among the traders was to the effect that prices for grain and pro- visions were low enough for a trading basis, consequently resisted any fur- her depression. BOSTON, Nov. opened in a feverish and demoralized condition; first prices being 1% to lower than Saturday's closing. At the market was more set- tled, and from the lowest, Atchison is up 1 point and Union Pacific y2. TUB HAGUE, Nov.

Special to'the GAZETTE.] SAN FBANCIBCO, Nov. Board of Election Commissioners began the official canvass this morning of the vote cast at Tuesday's election. The returns from the first precinct of the 29th Assembly District were' first opened, and it was fonnd that there was a discrepancy between the returns and the tally sheet of one vote for Governor and two for Supervisor. A warm discussion arose as to whether the Board should correct the tally sheet, or figure out the changes after the total vote was counted, or throw out the returns fiom that pre- cinct. The question of throwing out the precinct was forthwith rejected on a vote and that of laying the precinct over until the full commission was present was carried. The second precinct showed the vote for Governor to be correct, but one candidate was cred- ited' with ten votes more than the re- turns showed. Union Paeine Matters.
