Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1890, Olean, New York IB v PA The Olean Democrat. VOL. XI I. OLEAN. CATTARAUGUSJCO. NEW YORK. THURSDAY. DECEMBER 4, 1890. WEEKLY TRADE REVIEW. LEGITIMATE TRADE RETARDED BY A STRINGENT MONEY MARKET. Great Difficulty Experienced in Obtain- ing Commercial the Tightness of Money the Volume of Business Continues ing Reports from the Marked Advance In Speculative Markets. NEW YORK, Nov. G. Dun Co.'s weekly review of trade says: "The past broken week has not improved the business outlook. Ths difficulty of obtaining commercial loans increases, not here only bur, at most other points. The banks and other lenders, from the largest to tlie smallest, appear to have been in- duced by recent events to strengthen themselves. At most of the interior mar- kets money grovrs more stringent, and the scarcity begins to affect trade at im- portant centres though the volume of busiuess is still very large. Boston re- ports extreme firmness and hi rates, 8 per cent, even between banks. Trade is affected and most branches quiet. Wool is dull, sales being only Ibs., and large lots move only in concessions. Cleve- land notes an active demand for money and a tight market. At Detroit the de- mand is strong at 7 per cent., colder weather helping trade there and it Mil- waukee, where money is very active, man- ufacturers asking largely at 7 per cent. "The at St. Paul is easier and the feeling better, but bank failures in Duluth cause some uneasiness. Cincin- nati reports a close market. At Kansas Cityjhe supply of money is close. Money is quiet at Pittsburg at 6 to 7 per cent. Bessemer steel is 50 cents lower and de- mands for finished iron smaller. South- ern reports are less encouraging. Money is In sharp demand at New Orleans, the movement of sugar being unprecedented; exceedingly tight at Savannah with com- mercial prospects less bright; more timid at Atlanta, though holiday trade opens with good feeling, and in Florida a short corn crop and embarrassments of merchants cloud the prospects. But at Baltimore money is easy, manufacturers active and retail trade improved, though jobbing trade slackens. "The situation of the great industries is less clear. The setback in wool at Boston averages 1 cent per pound less on delaines and combings, but more on other kinds, but the decline is not near as great as it has been at the west. Cotton manufac- ture Is fairly maintained, lower prices of the raw material helping, and estimates of the new crop averaging about bales. The week has been one of peculiar dullness in the iron trade, and the tone is weaker. The speculative markets have been advancing. Wheat has risen cents, corn cents and oats 4% cents, lard 15 cents per 100 pounds and coffee cent, pork being unchanged and oil 1 cent lower. Cotton has also yielded 1-16 in view of crop prospects. "The rise in breadstuffs has not in- creased foreign demand to justify it, but operators seem to have concluded thai monetary difficulties are all over and they can carry the grain until Europe is forced to buy. The coal market has been dull and disappointing. In the stock market the strong rally of last week continues, prices having been moved up about per share since the break. There is already heard, as a stimulus to speculation, much talk of the passage of a bill for free coinage of silver at the next session, which many believe will have an enduring influ- ence in raising prices. "The treasury has not been able to give any assistance to the money market during the past week, but has put out more silver notes, nearly bal- ancing net withdrawals oi other money from circulation. There is at present no fear of disturbance from abroad, as funds in the Bank of England increase rapidly and the rate of sterling exchange is maintained. "Business failures occurring throughout the country during the past seven days number for the United States 211, and for Canada 38, or a total of 259, as compared with a total of 274 last week and 266 the week previous to the last. For the cor- responding week of last year the figures were 249, representing 210 failures in the United States and 39 in the Dominion of A SICKENING ACCIDEr, i. Byron A.

Mr. Harrington received a cablegram from John Redmond and Mr. O'Kelly, reading as follows: "If you want to save Parnell and the Irish parliamentary party come home at once.1' Mr. Harrington has not decided whether or not to return to London in response to the message received from Mr Parnell's adherents yesterday. He intends to Isave the city to-day for a locality where he will remain in cog for a day or two Should he decide to comply with the de- mand for his return home he will sail from New York on Saturday. All the cablegrams received by the dele- gates last evening indicated that affairs in London remained in statu quo; that the policy of the Pranellites was one of delay, and that it was doubcful whether there would be a solution of the problem in volved in the crisis within the present week. _________________ ADVICE TO HOME RULERS Ireland 3Iast Appear Under One Party or be Forsaken by America. NEW YORK, Dec. New York Weekly Union aud Catholic Times, the organ of the Catholic societies, says edi- torially, regarding the troubles in the Irish parliamentary party: America ex- pects of the home rule members that, af- ter having their struggle out, the minor ity shall submit to the majority, and loyally abide by whatever leadership that decrees. That is the Democratic, Ameri- can play in electoral battle and the decision of the majority sacred and binding on both sides. One thing we must not have; we must not tolerate a repetition of the two Fenian parties. Either Ireland will appear under one party or America will have nothing tc do with her affairs. We will not raise a hand nor give a dollar to help a compet- ing home rule party; we will give ample, unstinted, enthusiastic sustainment to a united Irish party acting under whatevei leadership may prove paramount in the judgment of Ireland. We are quite certain that we can win home rule even under Parnell's opponents) with his powerful leadership missing. We are certain, too, that we can win home rule under Parnell's leadership, even with the disadvantages of his strained relations with the Liberal leaders. FOUR PERSONS DROWNED.

Mr. Hines one of the party, supported Mrs. Turner until she was drowned by the waves washing over the boat. He thet removed his clothing and swam ashore, which he reached in an exhausted condi- tion. Mr. Hines reached Kissimme Sun- day and a steamer was sent out tc j search for the bodies. The wife and of Mr. Greene and the father, mother and sister of Mr. are at Kissimme.

At last night's meet- ing of the Nationalist members of parlia- ment tho stormy scpnes of the morning session were re-enacted. Mr. declared that whatever the action oi tho meeting might be, the ques tion would not be decided at Westminster. The decision outcht not to be hurried. It was best to give the country time tc think. Mr. Kolan's amendment, that the ques tion be postponed to a future meeting at Dublin, was, however, rejected by a vott of 29 to 44. A. O'Connor advised Mr. Parnell tc withdr.-iw, as it was henceforth impossible for him to be leader. Mr. Jordan of Clare accused Mr. Parneli of sacrificing the cause of the nation to his insensate pride and culpable ambir.ion. In the of the meeting Mr. Par- nell attacked Mr. Barry and others foi sending cablegrams to America and try- ing to influence the delegates there. Mr. Sexton replied that he had received a telegram from Mr. O'Connor requesting him to give bis views on the situation, and he did not feel that the mere fact ol distance entitled him to refuse the request. He therefore cabled Mr. O'Connor inform- ing him that a majority favored Mr. Par- nell's retirement. He further cabled that if the envoys saw any way to support the majority substantial unanimity would be secured. Col. Nolan said that Mr. Sexton ought to withdraw this expression of opinion from the telegram, for he must now that unanimity does not follow fcsza. the American delegates voting rxlmst Mr. Parnell. Timothy Heal What's all this discus- sion about? It seems to be another piece of pure obstruction. Mr. That is a most insolent and impertinent observation. [Cheers.] Mr. Barry attempted to speak, but Mr. Parnell ordered him to sit down. William If any names were to the delegates in America, all the names on each side ought to hnve been given. I hear that the telegram from the delegates was read by certain Irish mem- bers in an English club, and was received with cheers. If Mr. Parnell is to be de- posed, in God's name depose him without making it a matter of cheering in an En- glish club. M, J. Kenny declared that it would be impossible to obtain home rule without an alliance with an English party. He strongly objected to subordinating Irish interests to any particular man. He had little hope for the Irish party if it depend- ed upon the chairman to save them from the chicanery of any English statesman. The Irish looked to the representatives in parliament not to Mr. Parneli [for salva- tion. Xavier Brown said they had little lead- ership from Mr. Parnell in recent years. After the divorce suit be (Brown) had come to the conclusion that Mr. Parneli's continuance in the leadership would be an intolerable disgrace. Edward Harrington Why didn't you say so at the time? This ought to be stopped. Mr. Parnell Let him go on. P. O'Brien bitterly reproached Mr. Parnell for his course in regard to the Hawarden interview. There were angry retorts froT. "r. Parnell's supporters. Mr. Parueli i -c-lf denied that he had said that Mr. 'r .ulstone was false. Mr. O'Brien concluded: l-I leave you (Parnell) to convince the Irish people of the honesty of your part in that grave matter." An adjournment was then had for dinner. After dinner it was elicited that Mr. P.irneli's secretary, Mr. Campbell, had given Mr. Tuohy of The Freeman's Journal his own opinion that Mr. Parnell would retire. Mr. Tuohy repeated the statement In the lobbies of parliament. Mr. Tuohy said he was doubtful about having con- veyed such an impression, but J. Huntly McCarthy declared that Mr. Tuohy had given to understand that Mr. Parnell would reMsn. Others said that Mr. had said that Mr. Parnell would rc'ain the chair. The subject was then dropped. Mr. P-.rnell called for a division on Mr. Nolan's amendment. The minority voting for the amendment was made up as follows. J. P. Xolan, Joseph Xolan, Biane.

The president declared that this depression is an anomaly to the student, of industrial progress "Retrogression in American agricul- he said, ''means national decay, and powerful and promising as is this great republic, yet its power and glory touch not the degradation of the American farmer." The alarm incident to centralization the money power and upbuilding of monopolies was then pointed out and both political parties were condemned for forcing and encouraging this condition. The president urged that additional or- ganizers sent at once in Oregon, New York, Washington, Idaho, Arizona, New Jersey and other states. Among hia recommendations was one that an organi- zation be formed as the national legisla- ture, composei of the national president and presidents of all state alliances, their duty being to look after legislative reform demanded by the alliance, both in state legislation and congress. He deprecated sectionalism and closed with an eloquent appeal for national harmony. GHASTLY DISCOVERY. THE LAND PURCHASE BILL. Mr. Balfonr Will Reconsider the Twenty Tears' Limit Clause. y, Dec. 3. In the house of com- mons last evenijcg Mr. Ellis moved an amendment to the land purchase bill, de- claring that the measure was unsafe to the imperial exchequer and unjust to the occupier. Mr. Gladstone said that the changes in the bill since the last session were not likely to make it more satisfactory. There was a removal of the twenty years' limit with a proposal that county rate payers become liable for sums borrowed in the purchase of lands. Did not Mr. Balfour think that the vote of the rate payers might stop land purchases ia many dis- tricts? Mr. Balfour nodded assent. Mr. Gladstone continuing, said it would be a great mistake to pass a bill opposed to the desires of the Irish members. As circumstances prevented the presence of the Irish members then at any rate he would not dwell upon that point. The lack of Irish authority went to the root of the matter, and impelled true friends of Ireland to oppose the bill. Mr. replying to remarks by Mr. Chamberlain, estimated the total amount required to complete the purchases at He said he would reconsider the question of the twenty years' limit. Re- ferring to the eviction of tenantry for de- faulting payment for land, he said the state would not become an evictor. The land commission, acting in the interest of the local authorities, would evict. "THE LEADER." Lincoln, National League Expresses Confidence in 31 r. Faruell. LINCOLN, Neb., Dec. 3. The local branch of the national league held a meet- ing last evening and adopted resolutions ex- pressive of their confidence in Mr. Par- nell. At the conclusion of the meeting the following cablegram was sent to Mr. Parnell by the officers of the branch: "The Lincoln, Neb., branch of the Irish National League ot America sends greet- ing and recognize in you the only leader that can carry the home rule movement to a happy and successful issue." John Fitzgerald, president, and John P. Sutton, secretary of the Irish National League of America, declined to express an opinion on the existing crisis in the Irish affairs pending a meeting of the executive meeting of the league, which will be probably in the city in a day or two. AtTBUBN, N.Y., .Nov. trial of W. W. Allen, the embezzling ex-superinten- dent of mails of Buffalo, was continued yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Etta King of Humbertson, Can., identified one of the letters found on Allen as one she mailed at Humbertson. It did not contain an enclosure of any kind. Robert Watte of the detective firm of Watts Curtin of Buffalo was the next witness. He detailed the happenings in office when Allen was brou eh t there immediately after his prrest. His testi- mony was corroborative of that given by Clark and Hartshorn. William R Watts, son of the former witness, and a depnty United States marshal identified the eighteen letters fonnd on Allen's person and gave testi- mony corroborative of previotis witnesses.
