The volume of legitimate business throughout the coun- try continues large, exceeding that of last year by 10 per cent, outride of New York and the desire to market products, as prices rise, causes greater demand lor cur- rency from the country than usual. American Wheat Re-Sliipped. "Not only have exports been arrested, but bushels American wheat were re- shipped to this country from Liverpool and trades were in progress for more when the break came. Exports of products from New York for three weeks of August are 23 per cent, smaller than last year's, and the recent change does not yet suffice to bring exportable staples down to the parity of foreign prices. The iron in- dustry still shows a strong demand for finished products, with some stiffening in prices, but the supply of pig iron is so large that prices are shaded in urgency to sell. The market for wool is dull and prices a little lower, the supply of foreign goods offered being very large. The de- mand for cotton goods has been fair, bur prices do not change, and the return of the material to a more natural range of prices is awaited.

The place where he fell over was a few feefc from the government fence. The shrubbery was stripped of its leaves where he went over. Evidently the ur fortunate man had grasped them as he went over after missing his footing. The doctors in charge expect to bring him through all right. _____________ DEATH IN A CELL. A Supposed Drunken Expires Before Medical Aid Arrives. BUFFALO, Aug. on Saturday evening the First precinct patrol wagon was called to the corner of Huron and ?.iain streets, where a man was found lying on the sidewalk and bleeding from the mouth. When the arrivfcd, tha man had revived sufficiently to walk to the wagon unassisted, and from the wagon to the station house. He gave his name as Patrick Murphy, a laborer, 35 years old. He was apparently intoxicated and was locked up in a cell. Early yesterday morning, officer Walsh, while getting the prisoners ready for the morning justice court, noticed that Mur- phy was very ill, and sent at once for Po- lice Surgeon Fowler, but before he arrived the man died. Coroner Kenny was noti- fied and had the remains taken to the morgue. __________________ ANOTHER STRIKE THREATENED. Vice President "Webb Invited to a Con- ference With, a View to Arbitration.

CHICAGO, Aug. Fire discovered in McViclcer's theatre on Madison street, between State and Dearborn streets, at ye-teraay morning. As far as can be learned it originated in the smoking room under and to the west of the stage. The dry and inflammable ftirnisl of the room provided mater J for the blaze, and in a moment; a fie 'e flame out through a side window in tho alley. As soon as the firemen arrived cii the scene they directed a stream of water through the window from which the flames were coming. The smoke damaged the valu- able scenery of the "Shenandoah" company, now performing at the house. The fire made unexpected headway in the interior of the building, and in thirty minutes after its discovery made its way from the basement to the roof. The flames apparently enveloped the whole building, and at a few minutes before 4 o'clock were bursting from all the win- dows on the west and east side of the theatre. When it was seen what rapid headway the flames were making, addi- tional help was summoned and every effort was directed to saving the front portion of the building, where a number of offices are located. Nearly every occupant of the building is a heavy loser, although none of them car- ried heavy stocks. Panic in a Hotel.; The flames shot out of the rear of the building with such f ury thatthey extended across the alley and threatened the de- struction of the Windsor European hotel. Many of the guests of the hotel were awakened and a panic resulted. People hastily grabbed their clothing and made their way to the street. There was no occasion for the fright, however, as the firemen guarded the hotel so well that the flames had no chance of com- municating with that building. Panic also seized the guests of the Saratoga hetel and Bennett house, but the flames did not reach either of these places. Miraculous Escape of Firemen. Seven men belonging to the Fire Insur- ance patrol No. 1 were jn the auditorium at work when the roof fell in, shortly after 4 o'clock. They all escaped by a miracle. Not so fortunate were the men who were fighting the fire In the rear of the building. When the rear wall fell all the men of No. 7 were buried in the ruin's. The fire- men were more or less hurt and Fireman Jack Duffy had his skull fractured and will probably die. toss Estimated tot Over The total Ics-s to the theatre building and its occupants is- estimated at over Several stores on State street caught fire, but the flames were boon extinguished. The fire burned fiercely for three hours. The walls remain standing, bus the in- terior is gutted. The firemen were suc- cessful in keeping the flames from the front of the building and ti.e offices there were not damaged at all fire. The in- surance to Just how the fire started is shrouded in mystery. There are strong su-sjiicions of incendiarism. The thcau-e will bs re- built at once. i l.

About psr- sons assembled in Union square last night to respond to the call for a meeting of sympathy with the New York Central strikers.

Moore re-cited the wrongs inflicted upon the workers by capitalists and urgM workingmen not to vote for the party that supported the capitalists. It was Channcey M. Depew's highest ambition, Mr. Blos-ert to be at table with the Prince of Wales at the head, 'i ne country t3i 1 not want that sort of inan for dent. Mr. Powderly said it was announced from Terre Haute that the snpreme ro'in- cil of Federation of R-nlway Km- ployes had indorsed act-on of th" in the present ,-trike.
