Gen. New Appointment. WAsttlNGTOX. Oct. 13-Oen. Edward S. Bragg of Wisconsin was to-day appointed by Atluinty General Harmon special as- bist-uit to the 'Jnltcd States District At- torney for tiiC Eastern District of Wlscon- bi'i. IIu ilu.ies will be to aid the District xi prosecuting the aulta .if the'J asainst the Manufactursrs' Iiues'.mrnt Company of Wlsconsljl to re- cover a large tiact of land, about the own- ership of v.-hich there has been for some time a dispute. Gen. Bragg was of the commission under a Congressional en- actment made an investigation of the facts of this owrt-rahlp on behalf of the Gov- ernment. GUI Bragg was a prominent can- didate for the nomination for President before the Nj-tionul Democratic Conven- tion at Indianapollv The White Metal Can Now Be Bought for Sixty-four and One-half Cents an This Rate a Silver Dollar's Actual Worth Is Only 49.88 the Price of Silver Decreases Wheat Beaches Its Highest Point. Coincident with another Increase In the price of wheat of 1% cents per bushel, com- mercial bar silver declined yesterday to cents an ounce, the lowest figure touched In three years. With pure bar silver at WMi cents and ounce the actual value of a silver silver at G4Vj cents an ounce, the actual dollar Is only cents. The advance in wheat in the Produce Ex- change was attended by more activity and speculative Interest than has characterized ihe grain market here for the past few clays. The Produce Exchange quotation for De- cember wheat at Monday's closing was 75% cents a bushel. The opening price yester- tlay morning- was and the exciting trading- throughout the day was entirely within a small fraction of that figure. The wheat pit was filled to overflowing with brokers at the outset, and after a few min- utes of lively trading the price receded to Subsequently it recovered, and slow- ly rose to the highest figure yet reached In the present movement. Reports by cable from Liverpool and pri- vate dispatches from Chicago were both favorable to a strong and rising grain mar- ket, and corn and oats moved up in sym- pathy with wheat. In Liverpool wheat and corn were each Id. higher yesterday morn- ing than on the day before, and in Chicago an advance of 1 cent a bushel on wheat was reported very early in the day. The fact that the heavy foreign demand for American wheat shows no signs of dimin- ishing naturally gives Impetus to the up- ward movement In prices here and in Chi- cago; it also prompts a great deal of buying for storage In this country, as some of the big operators look for considerably higher prices a few weeks hence. At the close of the market yesterday wheat was firm at asked for December futures, and corn was 32% bid for the same month. There has been but little demand for silver certificates In the speculative mar- ket recently. Trading In bullion ha3 been fairly active, however, and exports ot bll- ver are stimulated by the cheapness in price. Bullion dealers In this city say that the lowest figures have not been reached, either with listed certificates or commercial bar silver. Zimmerman Forshay, the Wall Street bullion brokers, arc selling calls on both gold and silver. The gold calls are for amounts of and upward at par, and arc good until Dec. 31. The silver calls are for Hated bullion certificates. In lots of ounces or upward, at 70 cents per ounce, and are also good until Dec. 31. THE CHICAGO 1V11EAT MARKET. Took Another Jump In the Fit Yesterday Morntnff. CHICAGO, Oct. 13.-The wheat market started with a Jump of about 1% cents per bushel, much to the disgust of many of the bulls, who had sold their long wheat yester- day. The sudden advance was principally because of the strength with which the Liverpool market had started. A matter which was reported yesterday, and which excited very little local comment, may possibly have had more Influence upon speculative sentiment In England than It had here. That refers to the estimate of bushels reduction in the visible sup- ply of the United Kingdom last week, not- withstanding the recent shipments from this side and from other surplus-pro- ducing countries. The range of prices In different parts of trte pit at the same moment at the open- ing was a wide one. December sold at from 70% to 70% cents, very sparingly at the extremes, but heavily at from 70% to 70% cents. The closing price yesterday was GSHt cents. The figures given marked al- most the entire range of the forenoon's fluctuations, the only exception being a dip to cents as the culminating point of a gradual reaction, which set in after the opening splurge, but that was fol- lowed by a second rise to 70% cents before 12 o'clock. The price of December had nu- merous fluctuations between 70% cents and cents, and finally rested at cents and 70% cents, or rise for tho day. Gold to Arrive Tlila Week. More than In gold Is due to arrive here from Europe within the next six days. Engagements have already been made at the Bank of England for about which has not yet been shipped, so that by the latter part of next week fully will have been added to the Imports, raising the grand total to about Muller, Schall Co. expect one or two large consignments to-day or to- morrow. The demand for currency from the West and South has diminished greatly this week. The Sub-Treasury transfers yester- day amounted to only LOXDON, Oct.

I., Oct. friendly scuffle between two soldiers of the United States artillery last night resulted in tho death of Michael McHugh, twenty- one years of age, who enlisted from Jersey City June 11.

The Old Dominion In a. Great The AUortaey General Telia How to m Rodder Chain Breaks. RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 13.-Passengerg on the Old Dominion of the Old Dominion Line arrived In this city Just before noon to- day, having been sent by rail over the Chesapeake ana Ohio Railroad from New- port Neivs. They tell a story of rough experience on the sea. Three hours after leaving New- York Saturday afternoon a stiff northeast wind arose that soon developed Into a fear- ful gale, and the crew and passengers un- til last-night had troubles such as they never wish to go through again. One of the passengers, W. M. Lathrop, editor of The Carbondale (Ponn.) Leader, told the following story: The passengers behaved well, though badly frightened, until about midnight Sat- urday, when the rudder chain snapped, leaving the boat without guiding power for majiy minutes. Of that moment, Capt. Blakeman saia-afterward: 'I would not have given 10 cents for all the lives on the boat at that time.' When, after a terrible experience In the wind and overlapping water, the rud- der cha'n was repaired, the passengers took some new courage, but an hour later, when the chain broke again, every the truth be told, gave up completely. One passenger tried to borrow a revolv- er with which to shoot himself, and an- other offered all his property to any one who would guarantee safety to port." Air. Lathrop said Capt. Blakeman de- clared It was his worst experience In twen- ty-seven years' life on the sea, one found It ha.d to believe that he waa pot exaggerating. Thtt. JunieHtown Also ]n_tue Gale. NORFOLK. Va.. Oct. 13.-The Old Do- minion Iron steamship Jamestown, which left here for New-York at o'clock Sat- urday night, met the hurricane of that night and Sunday and had to put back to this port when oft Atlantic City, owing to a shortage of coal. She arrived here about 2 o'clock this morning. Her officers report that at times vessel almost laid on her side, so rough was the sea. For many hours tho ship was able to make only four knots per hour, and when off Atlantic City, N. J., the supply of coal grew so low that the Captain determined to run before the wind back to this port. Some of the perishable cargo suffered, but all In the hold of tho vessel was unin- jured. The Jamestown carried a good many pas- sengers, all'of whom were extremely sick. Many of the passengers left for New-York by rail this morning. POLITICAL DUEL POSSIBLE. Free-Silver Statesmen of Kentucky Exchange Warm LEXINGTON, Ky.. Oct. D. Car- roll of Henry County and C. J. Bronston of Lexington, defeated candidate for the Sev- enth District free-silver'Democratic nomi- nation for Congress, are on tho point of fighting a duel. The trouble is said to have grown out of Mr. Carroll's failure, to -support JMr. Bron- ston after, ,ho (Carroll) had no chance of winning. Words passed Jjetween tho two men, arid Carroll told Bronston unless he apologized he would have to answer to him personally. Bronston has not apologized, and It Is be- lieved that correspondence has been pass- Ing between the two men since tho conven- tion, the contents of which would be sensa- tional In the extreme If made public. DEPENDS ON THE ELECTION. A Weddlna: That Will Never Occur If Bryan In LIGONIER, Ind.. Oct. Grace Dawes of La Grange County Is the accept- ed HancSe of W. E. Kener, a Milwaukee traveling salesman. The couple had determined to marry Oct. 20, but In attestation of their political faith, both being Republicans, the prospect- ive bride and bridegroom have agreed In writing that If McKlnley is elected they will seal their courtship in vows of wedlock Nov. 4, but if defeated the engagement Is to be broken.

Oct. 13.-In a fight between a posse headed by Marshal Heck Thomas and the Green gang of outlaws, at Ooiagh, I. T., last night, two of the outlaws were killed and the others captured. The dead men arc Jim Green and his broth- er, and they were members of one of the worst gangs of desperadoes In Indian Ter- ritory. The Greens have been actively on the road for three months, and their cool- ness and skill In robberies gave rise to the belief that they were In many affairs charged to the Cook gang. Last night Green and his gang rode Into Ooiagh. forty miles west of Fort Smith, for the purpose of robbing the town, but encountered Heck Thomas and party, and a fight followed, which proved most dlsastroua to them.

General Hancock .has been In receipt of numerous letters of Inquiry relating to the method of voting a 'straight or split ticket under the election law adopted at the last session of the State Legislature. In an opinion writ- ten to-day Attorney General says: "An examination of the law makes it ap- parent that In order to vote a straight ticket a qross mark is to be made In the cir- cle at the head of the party column. A split ticket may be voted in either of two by omitting "a cross mark (X) In the circle and making a cross mark (X) In the, voting space before the name of each candidate for whom the elector desires to vote, on whatever ticket the name may ap: pear. (2) BV making a cross mark (X) In the circle above the name of the party some of whose candidates he desires to vote for, and also making cross marks (X) before the name or names of any candidate In other party columns for whom the elector wishes to vote: counted In which caso hts vote must be for every candidate under the cir- cle except the candidates before whose names the elector has made his cross mark (X) In other party columns. Tho candidate or candidates so individ- ually marked In other party columns must be deemed the choice of the elector and his vote counted accordingly." PRINCE HILKOFF IN CHICAGO.
