MUCH BETTER FEEUM MISTS RENO, WASHOE COUNTY, NEVADA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER And a General Advance Along the Line. All The Banks in New York Protected. to be 1 lie Htock Marker. By Asvxiated Press. 1 NK.V YoitK, Nov. stock market opened excitedly, but higher for the general list. Interest seeuia to be centered iu Vilhmls arid on tremen- dous salea of Northern Pacific. North American advanced two points ove last night's clotting. At A. M. tho general lie showed gainH over hiHt night of from one to three points. The'market con tinue.s active und excited, but the up- ward tendency remains. North Pa- cific common, preferred, 59 North American, 18, When the gong sounded for opening business this morning on the stock exchange there was a yell and a rush, and pandemonium reigned. The gal- leries were crowded to their utmost capacity by a class which only visits the street 'm time of great excitement. Richly attired ladies pushed forward for a sight of the struggling brokers, and the most casual observer could see that it was a time of unwonted ex- citement. The market opened stronger than might have been expected and there was an evidently hopeful view of the situation, despite the fact that the early London advices, were not very favorable. Tho trading so far has been simply enormous, especially Villards and St. Paul. Several thou- sand shares have been sold under the rule, completing the sales begun yes- terday.. These are all in Villarde and St. Paul and are believed to be for the account of Decker, Howell Co. The general market declined slightly from the opening, with a two per cent drop in Burlington. The Villards, however, aro strong. It looks now as if the conditions are favorable to a de- cided improvement. The clearing house Bub-committee appointed to issue certificates to tho hanks meet at 11 to issue- certificates to such as re quire them. However, there will b no announcement as to what bank lire in trouble. In view of the fact that London i regarded as the main factor of the eit uation, it may be important to knov that bullion is being shipped from many financial centers to that point Half a million in silver bars go for- ward to-day on the steamer Saale, and cable advices state that Kussia sent two million francs in gold and will send two million additional. Early buyers were very urgent this morning, resulting in further gains of from to 1, in which Western Union, Burlington, Union Pacific and some of .the special ties were conspicuous. Villard's and especially Northern Pa- cific were conspicuously active and strong, common rising one point and preferred two points, touching and 59 respectively. The general list, however, soon yielded to the pressure and influenced further salea, under the rule, of Northern Pacific, North American, St. Paul and a few others for the account of Decker, Howell Co., the downward movement being more pronounced toward the close of an hour, and Burlington dropped 3, Northwestern while Villard's lost all advantage and North American re- tired 1. Fluctuations among the specialties and low-priced stocks wore extremely wide and irregular, while tho eutire market was feverish in the extreme throughout the hour. Later the Villards again showed strength, and the list followed. The market at 11 o'clock was very active, firm and strong, but generally at something under first prices, though better than those of last night. At the Villards .continue Btrong at the highest figures of the Pacific common, 20Hi; preferred, North Aineri- can, 20. A reporter interviewed President F. D. Tappen of the Gallatin National Bunk and u member of the clearing house committee. Mr. Tappen says: "Our committee is now in session signing certificates, but the indications tire that the issue will be small, prob- ably not more than tlvo millions, against twenty 1SS4. There is nothing iu the situation so for as it affects the associated batiks, and there is not the slightest reason to anticipate any disturbance in the finances of this center. Oar action yesterday in de- ciding to issue certificates waa merely precautionary. We did not anticipate any disaster, but believed it the part of wisdom to forestall rather than have to meet it. We are entirely satisfied that the situation -will improve." A. circular was issued I last night to the stockholders of North American railroad to meet this morning to discuss the situation, and the meeting is now in session. There are rumors of a formation of a German syndicate to protect tho Villard stocks. The Bank of North America-was a creditor at the clearing house to-day and an official states that they are again in good shape. A meeting o the Directors is now in session. stock market developed new strength after ll" o'clock, and while money is loaning at one-eighth uud interest, prices rose materially. The extreme feverisbness of the first hour still continued, but a better tone waa noticed all over the list. Another advance in the latter portion of the hour sent North American to 20% and Northern Pacific to 21 and pre- ferred to 62, although these prices did not hold long. Among the usually active stocks there was less anima- tion, but the improvement for the-hour exceeded one per cent, in many cases, St. Paul, Atchison, Burlington and some of the inactive specialties being the most conspicuous. Trusts were comparatively quiet. At noon the market was active, strong and gener- ally at the best prices of the morning. The decision of the New York clear- ing-house to issue certificates to be used in the settlement of balances, allayed the apprehensions of a bank panic and in that respect had a bene- ficial effect in helping a recovery. Receivers White and Slocum of the sugar trust have taken possesson of all property and effects of the trust ind have established their headquar- ters at 117 Wall Street. The meeting of the North American Railroad Company is over and the Utement is authorized that the com- pany had but few creditors. These re strong financially and they agreed to see the company through, and that the assets of the company are wholly intact. C. Walcott Co. of 32 Pine street have just announced their suspension on the stock ex- change. The house waa generally con- sidered solid. It is not believed tho failure will have any effect on the market. The failure created a little surprise. The house was a good one and had but a small interest in the market. It failed under the rule, for its ac- counts aggregated lesa than shares, distributed among all active specialties. Walcott refuses to mak a statement. P. market, under th influence of sales under the rule ha somewhat declined from the bes prices. PiiiLAUKU'iiiA, Nov. the stock market opened this morning al speculators' stock in sympathy with the upward tendency in the New York market advanced rapidly with but little excitement. The suspended brokerage firm of >farr Friend wil resume business to-morrow, LONDON, Nov. 12. the Stock Exchange at to-day pricos for consols for both money and account, compared with yesterday's closing prices, showed an advance. At the market was quieter. American securities had fallen three- eighths, but the other 'securities are firmer. At o'clock the market wasttill weaker. It is rumored a financial house is in trouble. At the close prices as compared with showed a decline of three- eighths for consols for money and ac- counts in American securities. Illi- nois Central waa quoted at an advance of one-half and closed steady. 1890. NO. 37. The German Emperor Promises Reforms. R.

The aiereeA Murder.' Special to the GAZETTE.! MEBCED mur- dered John Ivett, the vea'thy rancher at Snelling, is still unlnovn. Ivett was found lying upon hia face In n pool of blood, with one hot near the cellar door, and under him waa a piece of a whip, which none of the ranch hands recognize. Doctors Cassidy and O'Brien state that every bone in- the murdered man's head wivs broken by the force of the-blow. The key of the collar and a lamp were found beside him. The murderer had struck the blow just as the old man opened the door, as is supposed, to treat his guest to wine. In Ivett's study was found a half-finished letter to his young wife, who was in San Francisco, but who has now returned At the inquest the lanch hands tes tifled that Iveft left them after supper on Sunday evening to go to his resi- dence. August Olsen, Ivett's brother in-law, had been on the ranch since Thursday afternoon, and later he left, saying he might return that night or 50 to his mother's near La Grange. Ivett insisted on his returning to the ranch, and this Olsen admitted on his exaininrtion. He also admitted that he carried a hammer to Ivett's on Friday, but claimed he lost it from the saddle where is had been tied. He identified as his a rope bridle which was shown him, and when asked how lie accounted for the spots of blood on the rope, said he did not know. On being asked if he had cat his finger lately, he said: "I don't I did scratch my finger; it might be from that." The coroner's jury returned a ver- dict, after an hour's deliberation, that Ivett was murdered by some person unknown to them. The Sheriff and officers, however, are OK the ranch and it is believed they have a clue, as the bloody foot prints of the murderer have been ac- curately measured. Affairs. By Auoctated Press.! PiTTOBUBO.rlov. the session of tlxe Players' League to-day Presi- dent McAlpine formally presented the resignation of the New York club. An opinion from Judge Bacon of New York was read to the effect that nt the time the agreement was entered into between the New York Players and League club of the same city, it was understood that the two leagues were to consolidate. As this has not yet taken place, the agreement would not stand. No action was taken on the resignation. A committee consisting of Ward, Prince and Johnson was uppointed to attendee League meeting in session in New; York for the purpose of placing the matter of a consolidation before them. The committee leave to-night for New York. The Players club of this city was not represented ,at to-day's meeting and the4 matter of the Pittsburg' resignation was laid on the table.

Delegates were present from New York, Brook- lyn, Pittsburg, Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington line Indianapolis.
