WEEKLY REVIEW OF TRADE. of Thnni Shoots Vila BetroUuxt Dnad In Hit Arm. and Then gendi a Bullet Through Ills Own Brain Another Cut) Throat With a Razor The Strike on tlie Scotch ItnllwayN Serious XjOSHeit to LONDON, Dec. cormcquences have followed the discovery by the Rus- man poltcc of a Nihilist amonj; the students of the Yeterin.-iry In- stitute at Dorpat, the Athens of the North- ern empire. A number of the students implicated in the conspiracy were ar- rested and will doubtless soon be on thoir way to the prisons of Siberia, to spend the remainder of t.heir lives in privation and misery. Two of the suspected youths, however, determined to escape this wretched fate by taking their own lives. Having learned the detectives were on their track, one of them, after a farewell interview with the young lady to whom he was betrothed, shot her dead in his arms and immediately put another bullet through his own brain. It is supposed that the couple had mu- tually agreed to die together rather than endure a life long separation. The other young man, after exhorting his fellow .students to remain loya! to their fellow citizens, and dividing his books and other effects among cut his throut with a Both the students" were scions of nrll-to-do and influential families. The affair has caused a sensation in Dorpat, where there are hun- dreds of ycning men from all parts of the empirn, studying at the university and the various schools. The .strike on the Scotch railways musing such a serious loss to merchants and business men of all sorts, all over the kingdom, that unless there is home indi- cation of a settlement soon, the board of trade will comply with the numerous ap- peals which are piling up before and interfere lo force an agreement of some kind by which the roads may be re- stored to their function as common car- riers. It is announced that the board will not remain inactive longer than Mou- day. Some of Mr. O'Brien's intimnto friends confess their anxiety as to the result of Mr. Parnell's conference with him in Paris. Mr. O'Brien's anxiety to see and put the present disastrous state of affairs in Ireland in order is so great that it IB feared that he may bo unconscionslv influenced by arguments seeming to point to an honor- able and practicle bnsis of reconciliation, whicn will hereafter prove to have been misleading, 'lliese apprehensive friends pay the tribute to Mr. Parnell's persuii- siTeness' involved In the belief that he is capable of "making the worse appear the better reason" in such a degree us to possibly swerve even so firm a patriot as Mr. O'Brien from the course which he has laid down for himself while live from the personal influence of hia former leader. Others, however, who are on equally clo-e terms with Mr. O'llrien, assert, that nothing can induce him to accept any compiomise which would include .Mr. Parneil'a retention of the actual or nom- inal leadership, and thus prevent the Gladstonians from continuing their lioiue rule program. The Friedman's Journal has for a few days post been pouring fulsome praise upon Mr. O'Brien, nnd the editor of the [viper was almost the first man to great Li in on Iji.s arrival in France, having been leputed IM Mr. Parneil'a forerunner to arrange the conference. It is evident that the Parnellites view Mr. O'hrien's atti- tude ns the most vital question of the hour for them. The nnti-Parnellitu.t place hardly less stress upon this poi'it, and they have not neglected to urge him to remain steadfast in his heretofore ex- pressed decision against Mr. Parnell. To Sue for Infringement of PnteiitH. ST. Louis, Dec. Adams Elec- tric Railway company of St. Louis will shortly enter suit against the Thomson- Houston, the Sprague, the Short and other electric railway companies whose systems are now in successful operation, for infringement of patents covering the fundamental principle of propelling cars with electricity as the motive power. The claim upon which these proceedings are to be based is the official record of the patent office department in Washington, bicked by legal opinions from the most eminent patent lawyers in this country to the effect that the Adams company holds the patent under which every successful electric road system of the country is now being operated. Attempted Suicide In a Grave Yard. WAHSAW, N. Y., Dec. night about 10 o'clock Calvin P. Wing, a painter by occupation, was found in the Warsaw cemetery with his throat cut, but still alive. His wife diod some mouths since and he has been despondent. When found he was lying on her grave with a large pocket knife in his hand. Sexton Keeney sent for Dr. George M. Palmer, who examined the gash, found the jugu- lar vein not severed, and dressed the wound. He is still alive. It is thought he had been drinking. Great Drifts of Snow. LEXOX, Mass., Dec. has been falling in the Berkshire hills nearly all day, and the hig i drives it into great drifts. ________ At Sivi'Htoga. SAIJATOOA, N. Y., Dec. driving suow storm prevailed here.

Dun Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "The holiday trade was remarkably heavy here, md at nearly all other points good, which is by no nieansevidetice that the tightness of the money markets springs from any general embarrassment nf business or industry. The volume of pavments through banks continues larger, thotiL-h but about, 3 per cent, larger than n.veiirago. Foreign trade is very heavy, in spite of causes which were expected to insure a material decrease. "Kcporls (mm other cities disclose no important changes in the condition of trailp. VVli ilesale business naturally slackens anil ii quiet at this point in the year. Huston prospects are considered better for trade in woolen and cotton goods, nnd some large lots of wool have been sold wi'hout change in prices. The demand for leather is fair. Conditions at other eastern cities have been not essentially different, though at Pitt--burg Bessemer iron has sold attl6.25, the lowest pricu for the year, and all pig iron is at bottom prices. Manufactured iron is in f.-iir demand and rails unchanged. At points further west expectation of im- provement after Jan. 1 is general and trade in wholesale lines is fully up to last year's mark. At Kansas City wholesale trade is quite good, but cattle and hog receipts are light. At Denver the demand for money is lighter and the supply equal lii legitimate needs, but at Salt Lake City the money market is extremely close. At other points in the northwest the mone- tary situation seems rather better. "Reports from the South also Indicate some improvement. Manufacturers at Louisville are fully employed, though money is very close. Trade at Atlanta improves, col ton moving more satisfac- torily, and at Gtilvi-ston receipts exceed last year's. New Orleans reports fair trade, larger receipts of cotton, the crop being there estimated at bales nnd good receipts of sugar and molasses with steady prii es. Throughout the South the fictitious prices maintained List sum- mer and fall for cotton have caused some embarrassment, being followed by the inevitable decline, as Uie magnitude of the crop.s bec.ime known. "While the situation of the iron nnd steel industry shows no improvement, the fact that closing weeks of the year are passing without any serious set back gives encouragement. On the whole, labor has never been more fully employed than in the bitter part of 18UO. The mone- tary situation grows more satisfactory, because the treasury disbursements con- tinue nnd arrivals of gold have given aid and the enormous excess of merchandise exports over imports is felt. "Business failures occurring throughout the country during the past seven days number for the United States 303, and for Canada 30, or a total of 333, as compared with a total of 404 last week and 374 the week previous to the last. For the cor- responding week (if lust year the figures were representing 203 failures in the United States and 20 iu the Dominion of Canada." GEN. SELIVERSKOFF'S MURDER. 4.11IH chut I'mllewsUl Said to in Bnl- Urrgoir.. Arrested. PARIS. Dec. Popoff, chief of the Hussian political police, is now in j Paris investigating the murder of Gen. Seliver-knil'. lie made a statement in which he. slates that the Anarchist, Pod- I lewski. who is supposed to have murdered Seliverskoif, has been traced to Brindi. From that point lie took ship from Varna nnd is believed to have made his way to Hie only country in Europe in winch Nihilists are considered and pro- tected, its political offenders. The law of that country operates to prevent the ex- tradition of persons charged with the of- telise impuied 10 Porllewski. Tne French Anarchist, journalist, Greg- oire, recently sentenced by the Paris tribunal 10 eight months' imprisonment for assisting Podlewski to escape from Paris, has been arrested in Palermo at the instance of the French consul to that place. Gregoire hnd previously offered to surrender himself to the consul in order that he might be present at the trial of M. Labruyere and Mine. Dnquercy. Greg- oire will now be sent to France, there to serve his term of im irisonment. On Trial for Train Wrecking. TROY, N. Y., Dec tnking of testimony in the trahi wrecking case was begun in the court o? sessions yesterday morning and four witnesses were sworn before the noon recess. All the evidence adduced on the part of the people was with reference to the location of the "cab- buge switch" at Green bush and the fact that on the night (if Sept. 4, 1890, it was displaced and the points plugged with fish plates. The arrest of Reediti Hudson on Sept. 7 was sworn to and his admission that lie expected to be caught nnd that he ought to have skipped the night before, was allowed. Took H Dose of Poison. NEW YnitK, Dec. Shutter, aged 74 years, ted suicide in his room, Bleeker street, by taking a dose of poison. Shutter was out of work and became despondent. lie leaves no rela- tives. It is said that in 1861 he was a suc- cessful dry goods merchant in St. Louis. Ju a letter found upon him he announced his intention to end Ms lifo. He was not able to get employment, said, on ac- count of his advanced age. Sudden Death In Church. BUFFALO, Dec.

[From the Mend? lie Trllnmo of Tumlay.J As an evidence tiiat Coiineaui lake i- so full of black ba-s that they are crowd- ing each other for room, we note how a young man by the name of Van Sicklen captured a big one yesterday morning. The young man was skating, n ai the sh re. The ice was s Ihia and clear that he could plainly ace the dark streak wliicb suddenly xcooted from beneaih him toward Ibe sbore. Following streak the skater soon discovered alaij.e fl-h in the weeds, and so close te Ihe shore lhat it was wedged between the ice and the bottom. Ii was an easy mat- ter to stamp a hole in the thiu ice, sieze the ttsh by the tail and yank him out. The prize proved to be a flve and three- fourihs pounds black baus. This is, so far as we have been able lo learn, the iirst instance in which a Couneaut lake buss has been chased out on the bank to catch him.
