1 BUSINESS REVIEW
BRADSTREET'S WEEKLY RE-
PORT ON TRADE SITUATION.
A WEEK OF MODERATE REACTION,
.More Particularly in the Volume of
l'urchitse^ of .Shtples in tlto West —
Wheat M.ikci Another «*1 oweit
Price on Ileoord"—Corn and
Oats Itoth lower—Wool
New York, Oct. 1.—liradstreet's
says: The feature of general trade
throughout the country is found in
moderate reaction during' the week,
more particularly iu the volumes of
purchases of staples West, where
trade has been quite active and at
Kastern points in the course of prices,
the week failing to show any upward
movement of note in this line,
and in the check to busi-
ness South, together with dam-
age to the rice and orange crops.
Leading jobbers at distributing points
which for a month past have reported
relatively most favorably concerning
the course of business—Baltimore, St.
Louis, Nashville and Chicago—send
modified advices as to activity and
the bright outlook. Wheat has made
another "lowest price" and Indian
corn and oats have both declined.
Sugar and coffee record lower figures,
and another lowest price for cotton
has had an unfavorable influence on
the tone of business at important
Southern markets, particularly in
view of the activity of the receipts of
London wool sales have proved dis-
appointing to those who predicted or
anticipated heavy purchasing for the
American market and rapid advances
in prices. On this side quotations are
off one cent, fleeces particularly being
weak. There is better trade in terri-
tories and Australia.
CORBETT TO FITZSIMMONS.
"Will Not Fight Him Until Ho Has Guuo
Portland, Me., Oct. 1.—James J.
Corbett has sent the following to
Portland, Me., Sept. 28, lSOf.
Dear Sir: I have read in the morn-
ing papers your very amusing chal-
lenge to me. You say the Olympic
club offers a purse. Well, maybe
they do, but 1 have never hoard
from them as yet. You put
$10,000 in the Olj'inpic club's hands—
why don't you put it up in some ne svs-
paper office, or some place where a
man can see it, or is tile Olympic club
backing you? However, that's neither
here nor there. I suppose you are
afrad if you put the money up in any
other place besides tiie Olympic club
some one else might cover it. It is
not necessary for me to give a reply
to your challenge, becanse you a e
well aware that I will not accept
nnle>,s you prove yourself a ehn
pion heavyweight and not a mi
"1 must acknowledge that as a
'middle weight' you have no equal,
but all you ever did in the 'heavy
weight' class was to defeat l'eter
Maher and .Joe Choynski, two second
class 'heavyweights,' since both of
these men have been defeated by Joe
Goddard of Australia, another second
"You say I promised to give you a
match if you defeated Choynski or i
Creedon. When you say that, you
know yon lie. I never even noticed
you, and don't intend to unless you
prove yourself a champion heavy-
"You want to jump over the liead3
of all these other people and take
that dying chance with me, but I will
fool you. Steve O'Donnell, my pres-
ent sparring partner, an undefeated
man, has $10,000 that he can defeat
you. He will box you from one round
to a finish for fun or for money. Now,
how can you expect me to recog-
nize you when this man stands
ready with the money be-
hind him to prove to the world
that he is your superior? If you will
only meet him and defeat him I will
accept an offer of twenty-five thou-
sand dollars ($25,000) from the Olym-
pic club and I will give you all the
fight you want. If you want to fight
me this is the only way j'ou can ever
get me to make a match with you, for
there is no power on earth that will
make tne notice you until you have
defeated Steve O'Donnell and any
further talk from you I will consider
and simply put down as bluff. I put
myself on record in black and white,
that if you defeat O'Donnell I will
fight yiu for the championship of the
world and all the money you like.
This is positively my ultimatum.
Yours truly, James J. Corbett,
"Champion of the World."

M'KINLEY ANSWERS WILSON.
The Ohio Governor on the I.ontlon Ban-
quet to the Tariff Iteformer.
Gai.lipolis, Ohio, Oct, 1.—Gover-
nor MeKinley spoke here yesler-
day to a great audience of
people. In the course of
his long address, Governor MeKinley
inquired what industries the tariff
law of 1894 created and what existing
industries it had stimulated, and said:
"I find answer to my question in
the newspaper dispatches of to-day
from London, furnishing particulars
of a banquet given by the chamber
of commerce of London to Mr. Wil-
son, member of congress from tho
state of West Virginia, whose rugged
hillsides I see just over the river.
Sir Albert lvave Ilollit, who presided
at the banquet, said that Mr. Wilson's
name had become honored and famil-
iar in England and that London, in
honoring him honored itself; that the
new tariff law, while it might not
have realized the aspirations of its
promoters, had already benefited
"Furnaces have been reopened in
Wales and Yorkshire and an impetus
has been given to the textile indus-
tries. This will be cheering news to
the people of the United States and
will bring comfort to the idle men
who, for a year, have been waiting for
the American mills to reopen. You
have not heard any commercial body
in the United States, through its
spokesman, declaring that any indus-
tries in America have been stimulated
by this law, whatever benefits have
I gone to other countries. While the
banquetat London was proceeding,the
board of trade at Edinburgh sent its
congratulations. There was a singular
absence of any American dispatches.
(Prolonged applause.) Here is a word
of encouragement which Mr. Wilson
himself gave to the gentlemen of
London, lie said: 'Our protectionists
: have been building defenses to keep
j'ou and other nations from compet-
ing with us in our home markets.
The tariff reformers are breaking
down these defenses:' That." con-
I tinued Governor MeKinley, "is what
we object to. If we do not defend
our home markets aq-ainst the pro-
ducts of the cheaper labor of other
countries, who will? Is it any won-
der that the gentlemen of the cham-
ber of commerce of London applaud-
ed Mr. Wilson when he uttered such a
"Mr. Wilson even despairs of free
government, for he said we are being
rapidly sobered, though unappalled,
by the truth forced upon us that of
all human governments a free
government is the most complex, and,
judged from the world's experience,
the most uncertain and short
lived. 1 beg to assure Mr. Wil-
son of We*-t Virginia that
the government of the United States
a free people, is safe and secure —
quite secure as governments that are
conducted by the titled few, and that
a people like ours, capable of govern-
ing themselves, and having so demon-
strated for more than one hundred
years, will be alert enough to s -e to it
that no industrial policy shall long
continue in this country that will
lower tho conditions of its people to
the level of their European rivals and

THE SITUATION IN NEW YORK
THE ANTI-TAMMANYITES MAY BOLT,
The State Democracy \\ i«i«j of thf
Party Intensely Hostile to Hill's
Nomination—The Senator (letting
the Lay of the I and — lilt-
terly Denounced by Two
New York, Oct. 1.—Of almost as
/nuch interest in this state is tho
question still unsettled as to whether
Senator Hill will or will not accept
the gubernatorial nomination is the
question as to what the state Dem-
ocracy and other bodies of Democrats
opposed to Tammany and machine
rule will do. Opinion is divided as to
the matter, and more than one
shrewd politician declares that Hill
will delay his reply to the committee
of notification until he can receive
some definite information as to the
lay of the land in the direction of
those who have heretofore been open-
ly hostile to him and his machine
methods, llis statement yesterday
that he would open the campaign in
Brooklyn, provided a united Dem-
ocracy should greet him, is peculiarly
significant on this point.
Equally significant the other way is
the fact that ex-Secretary Charles 8.
Fairclnld, chairman of the state Dem-
ocracy executive committee, and two
anti-Laughlin Democratic leaders of
Brooklyn had a conference yesterday.
Mr. Fail-child refused to say what the
outcome of the conference would be,
but declared that the state Democracy
could not publicly indorse the Sara-
toga ticket, and acknowledged that
many of the members of that faction
were int.-nsely hostile to the head of
the Saratoga ticket.
ri.AiN' woims nv two papers.
The Times, which has been an ad-
ministration organ, in an editorial
yesterday morning said:
'The nomination of Mr. Hill wrecks
all plans of party harmony, since he
is the "leader an.l creator of the
faction that is responsible for m-
harinony. After loudly proclaiming
that victory was hopeless without
union, Mr. Hill'sfriends have tak.'n a
step that makes disunion chronic, and
puts new life into expiring dissent.
There is death and destruction for the
party in this kind of management. It
is unintelligent anil unnatural. It
dries up enthusiasm, weakens party
attachments, and destroys the basis
of party loyalty. The Times would
not do its duty to the Democracy if it
failed to denounce the work of this
convention, begun in such hopeful-
ness and ending in this act of incred-
ibility. The Democracy has lost a
The Evening i'ost, administration
paper, in a leading editorial said:
"We consider Mr. Hill the most
dangerous man in American public
life. He is a 'dare devil,' and de-
lights to be considered such. He is
attractive to Tammany hall and all
the bosses and bad elements of
society because he represents what
they all aim at and strive for. Look-
ing back at the list of Democratic
leaders in New York, where do we
find his likeness? \\ here is his place
in the list with Van Huron, Marcy,
Wright, Seymour, Tilden, Cleveland?
1 he mark of all these men is found
in benefits to the state. They all had
ambit'ons. They had their battles,
their friends and their enemies, yet j
the candid judgment of to-day "ac-
knowledges that each and all of'them
had just claims to statesmanship.
\\ hat has David U. Hill done or
aimed to do that entitles him to a
place in the procession? The people
of New York owe themselves the duty I
of putting an end to his unprincipled ]
career and bad example. That they
will do so in the coming election we
have not the least doubt. The ma-
jority against him ought to b.' larger 1
than that against Maynard, because
he was the principal, where Maynard
was only the puppet and tool."

President Pre.cott on Their Klliot on
the Typographical Inion.
CniCAGo, Oct. 1.—One week from
Monday next tho forty-second annual
onvention of the International Typo-
graphical union will open at Louis-
ville, Ky. It will be tho largest con-
vention in the history of this noted
trade organization, delegates having
been elected from every district in
the United States and the Canada^'.
The deliberations of the congress,
moreover, will bo of unprecedented
importance from the fact that the ef-
fect of the rapid adoption of type-
setting machines and other matters
of vital interest to the fraternity will
be considered at length and acted
upon. An advance proof of tho an-
nual report of President W. B. Pres-
I cott of Indianapolis, and which will
be presented on the opening day of
the convention, reached this city to-
day. It deals at length with a s'coro
of questions affecting the fraternity
and incidentally of interest to tho
world of trade unionism at large.
Touching upon machines and
their effect, President Prescott
will say: "Coincident with, and
perhaps in a measure attributable to,
the depression through which the
world has been passing, machines
were introduced in large numbers
throughout the country. Based on
the most reliable information obtain-
able, it is a conservative statement to
say that these devices—of which there
are about 1,450 in operation, accord-
ing to the various manufacturers—
have deprived 3..100 of our members of
employment. True to the history and
ethics of trade unionism we have not
antagonized their introduction, but
have with some reluctance,it, may be,
readily formulated scales and entered
into agreements suitable to the
changed conditions. Many new ques-
tions have and will arise to harass and
aggravate us, and in dealing with
them it will benefit us and the future
of the craft to b- deliberate, accept-
ing the inevitable and securing tho
very best terms possible. It would bo
a foolish invasion of irrefutable facts
to deny or close our eyes to tho inev-
itable truth that machines for a time
are placing us at a decided disadvan-
tage in dealing with employers.
This, too, can only be minified
by the application "of the basic
principle of unionism—hearty acqut-
escnee in the majority's will. It has
been advocated in some quarters that
the international union securo con-
trol of patents of existing machines
or offer inducements for the invention
of now or.ps, renting them to pub-
| lishers and others. This may be dis-
missed as chimerical. The manu-
facturers of one of the most success-
' fnl machines on the market expended
about SI.000,000 before any financial
return was forthcoming, and it is
thought this concern is oven now pre-
venting, to it, disastrous competition
only on account of its immense capi-
tal an 1 consequent ability to take ad-
vantage of legal technicalities, or de-
fend its supposed rights under our
patent laws. Owing to tho actual in-
ventive genius of tin; age, the life of
any machine is problematical juul it
t would take an accumulation of capi-
j tal far beyond our powers to under-
take the manufacture of one and
maintain its supremacy. Amid the
darkness and the gloom that sur-
, rounds the introduction of machines
it is plessing to know that i.i the ma-
jority of instances employers have
shown a disposition to engage their
old employes as operators, thus af- j
footing the least possible disturbance
in the personnel of the affected j
