V. White badly squeezed in the Chicago Corn pit. New York sept. 22.�?Wall St. Was today the scene the biggest sensation it has witnessed in Many months. The suspense was at its height when the chairman announced that s. V. White so . Of 30 Wall St. Had made an assignment. The cause this assignment As Given out by Hon. S. White is a Corner in the Corn Deal. Or. E. Stedman said Quot this trouble is duo entirely to the great decline in Corn. For two three months past. Tho finn has been very Long Corn contracts in Tho september option. Quot the Good weather has produced such heavy crops that there was More Corn in the country than was probably known. Quot no assignment has As yet been made but one is in process making. I do not know who the Assignee will he. The liabilities the assets Are not known but Tho former Are supposed to to about $2.000,000. A number firms who were borrowing stocks from s. V. White so . Received notice from the firm before Tho opening business today to sell these shares. There has undoubtedly been More old Corn in the country than and one has supposed. Deacon White started out As a Farmers boy in the South and Illinois. He was next a school teacher then an editor a country weekly and finally a lawyer. While practising the Law. As he tells the Story himself to observed men making a great Deal Money in Wall St he concluded that he could do likewise and tried it. It was in 1865 that . White decided to turn his attention from the Law to become a banker and broker and became one the firm Marvin so White in Wall St. Or. Whito made ins greatest reputation upon Tho Quot Street in connection with the Delaware Lackawanna so Western Stock in March 1884. He is reputed to have cleared at least ?1,000,000 by the operation. A number other achievements in the Stock Exchange have established . Whites reputation As an Able and successful financier. Deacon White is one the most approachable men in Wall St., As he is also considered one the most honorable speculators. He is likewise a very charitable Man. He gives away yearly Large sums Money which the Public knows nothing. Quot any one who knows s. V. White knows that he will resume a is the common saying. Weather in blasts. Forecasts to be Given to Farmers by steam whistles. A the United states weather Bureau will in the future Telegraph to a limited number Mills foundries etc., in the agricultural Section where flags cannot be displayed to advantage the weather reports and they will be indicated to the Farmers by Means whistles. The explanation the signal system is As follows one Long blast indicates fair weather. Two Long blasts indicate win Snow. Three Long blasts indicate local Rains. One Short blast indicates lower temperature. Two Short blasts indicate higher temperature. I three Short blasts indicate cold wave. I previous to the above signals a warning signal will be sounded. The local press will announce the arrangements made in different sections to Tho country. All applications for forecasts should be sent to the director new England meteorological society Cambridge mass. Grafe disease prevalent. 4 Copper used to brighten up fruit Boston inspection. Boston was considerably disturbed this morning to read in the papers that the grape crop generally was diseased and More than this that those now being offered the Market had been sprinkled with a poisonous solution Copper. As a guarantee this report it was also published that several new York dealers had been raided and their Stock grapes seized. Or. Durgin the Board health was this morning interviewed the subject by a Globe reporter. That official said Quot we have had the report from new York and consider it sufficient to arrant an investigation our part. Quot we first heard it yesterday afternoon and at once visited a Largo number places where grapes Are sold. A we found nothing whatever to excite our suspicions. Quot All the grapes we could find were looking clean and pure. But we shall continue our search for several a phylloxera a . Durgin said a is simply an insect at work the fruit Leav in a Mark closely resembling what might be called rust. This kills the fruit but is not so far As i know particularly injurious to the person eating it. Quot fruit thus affected however can be sold Only at a nominal sum. Quot it is the preparation Copper however which is splendid the grapes As a preventative this disease that is hurtful and that is what we Are looking a Well known wholesale dealer in fruits writes the Globe As follows to the editor Tho Globe in Thlu mornings Issue your paper i read the news from new York that the Board health had gone around among the grape dealers confiscating and destroying grapes that had been sprinkled with some preparation Copper. As the report does not make any exception As to the locality wherein the grapes Are grown i think it does an injustice not Only to growers but also to the receivers in this City As Well As new York. I think that the preparation is used Only among the grape growers the Hudson River and it is the same that they have been using for Tho last three four years. After a Long interview with one the Large growers last season Aud being informed the manner in Bloh it was used i became convinced that the preparation was harmless and have never heard a Case where it has amp used any bad effects. The majority the graphs sold in this Market Are raised in the vineyards in the Lake sections Western new York and Ohio but i have never heard a single instance the preparation referred to being used in either Western new York Ohio. Therefore i deem it hut an Sot just lao that the Publio should know the facts. P. Frank h Lex Xio a. Terrible destruction. Forest fires Burn hundreds cattle and Many farms. St. Paul minn., sept. 2o.�?a. Westby who has Large contracts for government surveying. Came in last night from the upper Mississippi by Way the Duluth Road and reports terrible devastation along the line. He says hundreds cattle Are burned and Many homesteads Are destroyed. Tho train which he came Down stopped at one place and took in 17 men women and children settlers who barely escaped with their lives. Uii less heavy Rains fall at once All the Little villages and homesteads along Tho St. Paul so Duluth Road for Miles will be burned. There is no doubt that Many lives were lost and expensive logging outfits were burned. The country along the Lake division Eastern Minnesota particularly South Hinckley is suffering heavily. The country is sparsely settled generally but the Railroad company has Large forces men at various Points at work in an Effort to save their property and Check the flames. Tho Colony the Mille lacs lumber company at Malacca has been fighting fire for two Days and still the danger is not averted. Oak Park the St. Cloud and Hinckley Branch the great Northern is reported in great danger and it will be miraculous if it escapes destruction Canada and Cuba. Great Britain to save the dominions Trade with the Spanish Colony. Ottawa ont., sept. 23. correspondence the subject the treaty recently concluded Between the United states and Cuba is published. On aug. I sir Charles Tupper wrote to the under Secretary state for the colonies As to the Canadian position respecting the temporary treaty with Cuba. On the following Day to addressed the same official concluding As follows a i shall be much obliged if lord Knuts Ford will move the foreign office to cause an inquiry to be addressed to the Spanish authorities in Hie sense indicated and to request Lier majesty a minister at Madrid to Call Tho attention Tho Spanish government to the Assurance Given by Senor Morel that Quot under no circumstances would British and colonial Trade be placed at any disadvantage As compared with that the United states with the Spanish Antilles. Quot that Assurance is contained in a letter from sir Clare Ford to the late Earl Iddesleigh dated aug. 19, 1886. Which accompanied another letter to Iii a later communication dated aug. 20, 1891, to the under Secretary state for the colonies sir Charles Tupper gives Toto result an interview with sir Clare Ford. The Canadian High commissioner referring to sir Clare writes a the says that there can be no possible doubt and that he has been assured that treat Britain and Tho colonies will enjoy the Concession Given to the United states until the expiration the Anglo Spanish treaty in june next and he is also opinion that it would be premature to press Spain in reference to future arrangements pending the final settlement the French sir Charles adds a i have received Tho following Telegram from the Canadian Deputy minister finance a urge foreign office to obtain Spanish assent to our View treaty immediately. Trade with Spanish islands seriously Quot from the tone this message it appears to be obvious that Cuba is refusing to admit Canadian products the Terras stipulated in the treaty with great Britain and a serious derangement Canadas Trade would necessarily result from such a course. Quot i Trust Thutt lord Knutsford will move the foreign office to take such measures As will promptly Avert the consequences such action Tho part the Spanish Gold from Europe. British authority predicts grave evils for United states Silver legislation. Iii an interview with Robert Giffen head Tho commercial department and comptroller Corn returns the British Board Trade he was asked what truth there was in the calculation that England Aud the continent would be forced to part with Gold amounting to �60,000,000 to pay for the imports american Grain. Or. Giffen ridiculed the estimate. He said that before �10,000,000 in Bullion was sent to America both Tho Bank England and the Bank France would raise their rates discount and Check the Drain. According to . Giffen not Bullion but securities and exports will go to America to pay for Grain. Undoubtedly to said there would to a heavy Drain Gold for several months to come but the payments for Grain were not the sole cause such Drain an important Factor in the financial Situ Tion was Tho Silver question. Stable american houses he declared were making preparations to face a Silver crisis which is now inevitable by making Gold purchases in Europe. When asked if such a crisis was inevitable . Giffen replied Quot in my opinion it is impossible to Avert it. The United states has become overloaded with paper currency. Quot the Issue Silver certificates to the amount �12,000,000 Sterling annually was a Gross legislative mistake and is bound to bring a crash in response to an inquiry As to How soon Tho crash he predicted could be looked for. Or. Giffen said Quot february will probably realize the worst the position. I do not see How grave trouble can be averted by remedial legislation. There is hardly Lima to Avert it even if the two parties in Congress could agree upon the no Corn in the country. It is tied up in the 8. V. White failure says Chicago paper. Chicago 111., sept. 26. news says there is no Corn in the country. The great bulk the visible Supply is tied up in the s. V. White amp failure. Hadit Bat one broker added 600,000 bushels More to his 7.000,000 bushels Cash Corn factually paid for. He would have practically owned the visible Supply Corn the United states and Canada and could have so his own Price it. The Cash necessary to have made that Purchase possible would have been less than 255.000. The amount he had invested in the Cash article was 54,200,000. To have cornered Corn would have taken not Over $4,500,000. The visible Supply at Canadian ports at the time the break was less than 50,000 bushels. To also the situation More striking it is Dow cropping out that Chicago shipping firms generally carrying from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 bushels com at this time year Are almost entirely out. Win the Market Hoke Eastern dealers and jobbers in anticipation Tho failure the Corner had refused to Stock up waiting for Tho Large holdings to be thrown the Market. This has not been done As they expected and they have but Little Grain with which to till their orders from abroad. To make Good this deficit it is Estima that it will take the greatest part the Chicago Stock that consequently Only a Small amount will be applicable october contracts for Export from this port. One Board Trade firm declared that from too houses Iii the principal towns throughout the country they were unable to buy a Carload Corn All told yesterday. Other firms find the same difficulty and account for Tho % cent Advance both september and october Corn that score. Local industries such As starch factories Hominy Mills distilleries glucose works and Kindred manufacturers in Illinois and Indiana Are coming to Chicago to buy Cash Corn which they usually Purchase from country Points. Weather crop bulletin. Rain much needed Over the country hottest weather known. Washington d. Cd a sept. 26.�?today�?Ts weather crop bulletin issued by the department agriculture contains the following Over the Region East the Rocky mountains the week has been warmer than Tho corresponding week any previous year which Thoro is a record Iii this Vilice. This abnormal condition Tho temperature applies especially to the Central valleys Aud Lake Region whore Tho average daily temperature was from lf0 to 20 above Tho Normal. It was from d to Io-5 above the Normal Over the greater portion the Cotton Region and in new England and Tho Middle Atlantic states. This unusually High temperature with continuous Clear weather has practically forced the Corn crop to maturity Aud this Largo crop is practically Safe from injury from Frost. The weather conditions wore unfavourable for fall farm work owing to the continued drought and dryness Tho soil in the Winter wheat Region. This week was unusually dry throughout All agricultural regions East the Mississippi and generally Over the lower Missouri Ana upper Mississippi valleys. Drought conditions continue in new England and along the Atlantic const and Tho redact d rainfall has not Only retarded farm work but reduced the water Supply in Many places and this has resulted Iii the suspension the operations Numerof it Mills and factories which Aro operated by water Power. The Bot dry weather in new England has hastened the ripening crops and harvesting is Well under Way. Cranberries Are excellent and grapes Good. Ram is needed Springs streams Aud pastures drying up and Tho ground is too dry for fall seeding. Now its san Domingo. Gives the Best Trade privileges to the United states. Washington d. C., sept. 26, several years the dominican Republic has been maintaining in its Tariff a free list articles for the special encouragement its agricultural industries. By the terms its recent reciprocity arrangement with the United states this free list was to be abolished for All countries except Tho United states when the reciprocity treaty went into effect. In accordance with this agreement the president san Domingo under Date aug. 8, has published a decree abolishing this free list and restoring All the articles named in it to the rate duties fixed in a general Tariff which has an average per cent and Valorme.

Y., sept. 28. weekly bulletin the new York state weather Bureau says the warm Bright weather the past week matured Corn and buckwheat much More rapidly than was expected and has placed the greater part these crops out danger from Frost throughout the state. Corn is being harvested in All sections and even late pieces will be fully matured in a few Days should warm weather continue. A Large amount buckwheat has been Cut. And the remainder the crop is nearly ready for harvesting. Both crops will give More than an average yield for the state. Potatoes have generally been gathered in the lower Hudson Valley Ami the warmer Southern localities and in other sections digging progresses rapidly. Dry Bright weather has chocked the rotting this crop excepting a few the Southern mid Western counties. Nearly All the Large tobacco crop has been secured in excellent condition. Tile yield Beans is larger than was expected. Much this crop has already been secured and the remainder is generally beyond injury from Frost. Seeding is Well advanced for the season and Early planted grains Are in most cases growing Well although rain begins to be needed generally. This is especially the Case in the Southeastern counties where a drought once More the Hod Market. The Nev York hop Market shows some gain in tone but prices Are hardly a level with those reported from primary markets. Yearlings Are in moderate demand with prices firm Fine Stock. Olds neglected. It is estimated that the crops in Schoharie county will be at least a third larger than last year. Tho damage by lice will make Oregon crops Short 10.000 Bales. Tho yield is a Little larger and the crops better Quality but bops Are not keeping Well says the Waterville times. Some Nave spoiled. One lot 900 sold at 16c, others at 13@14c. Thirteen cents seems to be the limit new hops. The crop in Otsego county will about equal that last year. Dealers have bought several Hundred Bales new growth at la �14c, and Are said to be contracting to Brewers at 16c. The Harvest will be finished this week and the yield will be somewhat in excess last year but the Quality is uneven. Market is weak. Offers Are made 12c.

Crop notes. The Grain yield in Aroostook county me., this fall surpasses that any previous Harvest. Thus far there have been but two frosts in the county. It is thought that Tho potato crop in Aroostook will not be More than one Liaf As Largo As the crop 1890, which was the Best year for the crop since the Industry started. In North Lincoln in Penobscot county potatoes Are rotting badly. Windham county conn., Farmers will this year gather one the largest crops Ever known in that Region. Reports received by Hie minister agriculture indicate that the wheat crop Italy is ill be very great this year. Returns from 49 provinces show a crop 45,000,-ooo hectolitres while last year the crop All Italy was Only 48,000,000. It is certain that the other 20 provinces have produced enough if not More than enough to bring the total to the amount 1890.politics and tinplate deceptive and to debate Iii Massachusetts a Nebraska republicans. Connecticut selection muddled other matters interest. Easy enough. Brooklyn life Quot do you believe monkeys talk a Quot no they Quot but they seem to understand each a ooh. Well what it so do St. Louis sept. 27,-Tho St. Louis Republican prints an exposure the tinplate fraud Practised in Tho Ohio Campaign. Regis Chauvenet so bro., the leading analytical chemists St. Louis at the request Tho editor the Republic made an analysis one the so called american tin medals and Mada the following report we have made a qualitative analysis the medal sent us. And find results As follows the medal is a circular piece Metal stamped with the inscription Quot Mckinley and Protection. Made Ohio steel and California tin. Piqua 1891.�?� Tho composition the medal is wrought Iron Plato a rather inferior Grade covered with a very thin coating tin and Lead Alloy in which the Lead largely predominates. There is certainly no steel in its composition and to doubt very much Tho source claimed for the tin. These Are the medals manufactured from the alleged tin plate made in maj Mckinley a presence at Piqua o., and which the makers have confessed was not tin. One the medals came into the Possession the Republic and experience with the messes. Niedringhaus this City having caused doubt As to any the assertions Mckinley protected manufacturers regarding american tin plate it was decided to have a chemical analysis made. The result is a Complete contradiction Tho claims tin plate manufactures. Had the deception the tin plate manufacturers been made merely for political purposes Little damage would be done As compared with the injurious effects which will follow when the bogus tin is placed the Market comma scially. Every user articles manufactured from this Quot american tin plate might be Tho victim Lead poisoning. Tho Workingman would carry death in hts dinner pail if the pail was made the bogus american tin. Every school child would sip death from the tin dippers while the housewife would find death in cans fruit which she had carefully put up this summer. No class people would escape the slow and insidious grasp the Poison. Even Largo industries such As the Best canneries and canned beef manufacturers would be ruined by the fear the Public to use articles canned in american tin plate. With a View ascertaining the character Load poisoning and the danger to people using the bogus tin plate in which the coating is Quot a tin and Lead Alloy a in which the Lead largely predominates a Republic representative called upon prof. Charles Luedeking. Who occupies the chair chemistry at Washington University. Prof. Luedeking is recognized among scientific men As one Tho highest authorities in the United states upon poisoning. One the medals was handed to him for his examination and without any explanation the result the analysis made by Tho messes. Chauvenet. Quot there is something Peculiar about this a he said. Quot this done to look like tin. It has a bluish cast whereas tin is invariably a pure a explanation was made and prof Luedeking was asked the probability Quot tin plate this character creating wholesale poisoning. A that would to Tho said he Quot when this tin plate enters into commercial use. Lead poisoning is by far the most in Duons with which the medical fraternity has to contend. The Poison in slow in manifesting itself and before the physician can ascertain the True cause the illness the patient is frequently beyond the Hope recovery. Paralysis seems to be the favorite form Tho Poison takes although in some instances it causes rotting the Bones. Tho Lead is absorbed into the system slowly. It is for this reason Lead poisoning from food drink is mainly due. The cooking food in Iron vessels coated with Lead an Alloy containing Lead the carrying preservation cooked food in vessels the same character is extremely growing somewhat enthused Over his subject the professor painted Tho horrors Lead poisoning in vivid colors and the danger Asho described it from using this bogus to is certainly very great.

The matter was investigated by Secretary Noble who was satisfied that Tho charges were trite Aud that Young Raum was unlit to to in the service. At the time his dismissal it was said lie would to prosecuted criminally for having engaged in office brokerage but so far no action has ten taken by Lite District attorney at the meeting the Cabinet today it is said that Secretary Noble Laid before the president the affidavits four men who swore that they were promoted to Lusher places in the pension office by the commissioner at the request Iris son. Each the affiant swearing that be entered into an agreement with Young Raum to procure him the place and agreeing in Case he was appointed to pay him Katun a certain sum Money. The agreement was faithfully carried out both sides. Raum secured the appointment these men and the sums agreed upon were duly paid. These appointments.

The commissioner says in regard to Tho irrigation question Quot very Little Denra Blo Public Laud retains unappropriated outside the boundaries what May be termed the arid Region. That the demand for Homes the Public Domain is greater than Ever before in the country a history May reasonably to inferred from recent experience in the opening Oklahoma territory. Quot within 24 hours after Tho land was thrown it Eit for settlement by Tho president s proclamation there were at least two qualified entry men for every desirable Quarter Section land in Tho territory. This unusual demand did not arise because any special preference for the a Tomato soil but Localise the very limited area Public land remaining upon which a settler can raise crops without artificial irrigation. Quot there Are millions acres in the arid Region with soil equal if not Superior to that found Iii Oklahoma in sections the country where Tho climate is equally desirable which no one attempts to Settle for Tho reason that a water Supply for irrigation purposes cannot be secured at such expense As settlers Are Able to a it a. Quot we have reached a Point whore settlement the Public Domain a been checked by a great natural difficulty with Winch tile individual settler cannot successfully grapple and the general government May not appropriate Money to overcome. Quot Iii Ere Are two ways suggested sur i mounting Tho difficulty first to pursue a i policy indicated in a recent act Congress encouraging private capital to engage in Tho Enterprise. This policy must necessarily result in passing the ownership water and consequently Tho control the land to corporations. A a Wiser plan. It seems to the would he the Transfer the land and water to the direct control tile states subject to such limitations and restrictions As would insure the reclamation the land by the states and the Transfer title from the state in the first instance to actual settlers in Quantity not exceeding say too acres land to Cadi settler. Tho commissioner concludes his report with a Strong plea for the erection a suitable building owned by the government in which Tho general land office May be provided with adequate accommodations and that proper provision he made therein for the greater Security its records the pension list shows 676.100 the Rolla 138,210 Moro than last year. Washington. Sept 24. The annual report commissioner Linum the pension Bureau submitted to Tho Secretary the Interior today shows that june 30,1891, there were 670,160 pensioners borne upon Tho Rolls the Bureau being 138,210 More than were carried the dolls at the close the bust fiscal year.

At Tho close the fiscal year there were 38,574 pensioners the Roll to remained unpaid for the want time and wlm Are entitled to receive $4,883,242, which will be paid out the appropriation for the current fiscal year. And there remained at the close the fiscal year in the hands Hie several pension agents tile sum $5,713,852, which has since been covered into the Treasury there w ill be a deficiency Iii the appropriation for the payment fees and expenses examining surgeons about $300,000. Hie total amount disbursed account pensions expenses etc., during the fiscal year was $118.58.059, As compared with $100,493,890 disbursed during the last fiscal year. The report shows that the pensions now being granted Are not to persons whose terms service were Short. The great majority Are to veterans Many whom would have gone to their Graves in want hut for a lie just humane and timely enactment the Law june 27, i Koo. Thoro Are j,208.707 soldiers the Union now living and Tho survivors 520, Are hoax Tho pension Rolls. There Are therefore 088,549 survivors who Are not pensioned and 879,908 deceased soldiers not represented Tho pension Rolls. Tho commissioner closes his report by suggesting increased salaries for clerks in his Bureau who Are paid less than clerks in other departments paying them at the same time Many compliments for their faithfulness Aud laborious work. Points Worth noting. Postmasters reports to be studied savings Banks desired. Washington a c., sept. 20.�?county seat postmasters Are already beginning to Send to the postmaster general their reports their visitations to Tho other offices their counties. A new Hampshire Man who declares that no office in Bis county has been found poor and that none could properly be pronounced i it effect insists that his 66 will average As High As those any in new England. He Speaks the Courtesy with which All the postmasters have met him and Given him their ideas. A Pennsylvania postmaster binds his reports in a neat volume Aud accompanies it with a map his county showing the location All the Postoff Iees and Post routes. A significant fact is the absence any savings Bank in Tho county. An enterprising Indiana postmaster reports that every officer in the county visited insisted upon the general need a savings Bank in his locality. Tho visitation in this Indiana county was. In a sense not now for Over a year ago a beneficial meeting ail lha county postmasters had been held and a second one Lias since been held. So that the postmasters had already become acquainted with Oue another and had already exchanged ideas. These acquaintanceship greatly facilitated the recent visitations. An Illinois postmaster evidently took his Kodak with him As he turns in with his report a picture every Post office in the county and Many them Are accompanied with maps the town and with much other information value As Well As with suggestions Worth studying.
