Horner Green, a former negro slave,
died in the Alms house at Hemp
stead, L. I., last Thursday, at the
age of 123 years. Green is said to
have leon born on a farm near
Elizabeth port, N. J., January 1,
1777. He was sold to a Virginia
planter named Horner, by whom, it
is said, he was sold toOenerul Wash
ington. In 1812 he was made a
free man and then came North and
was employed by George Green, a
Ijong Island farmer, with whom he
rema net! for forty years.
Green's faculties remained unim
paired until 15 years ago, when his
sight and hearing began to fail and
he entered the poor house, where he
had lived ever since. He used both
whiskey and tobacco, but had never
shown any bad effects from either.
He was married several times and is
said to tie the father of 37 children,
most of whom are dead.

Unreasonably warm weather con

retail distribution, oool weather is
necessary to restore business in
most line of dry goods, wearing
apparel acd shoes. Conservatism
in view of the near approach of the
Presidential election is undoubted
ly an element exercising consider
able influence, particularly in stock
speculation. But a conspicuous
exception to this Is found in the
reawakening of demand and tho
advance In prices shown in the iron

This is really one of the mo3t im

and is taken as indicating that con
sumers" stocks are down to a mint
mum. Clearing statistics are encourag
ing, those for October particularly
so, although quieting stock specu
lation has apparontly limited tho
week's total. Failures naturally
show expansion over tho same pe
riod a year ago, but are much more
favorable man in preceding years.
Following the ending of the an
thracite coal strike has come the
announcement of an advance in
wholesale prices of from 25 to 30
cents per ton, and the impression is
that retail rates are not likely to
show any marked reduction very
Speculation on the various ex

mprovemmt in the demand for
both crude and finishtd iron and

Although the export demand for
iron and steel is quieted of late,
that for cotton is apparently undi
minished and this week witnesses
the hoaviest single day's exports
from New Orleans ever recorded.
Nine months' trade returns show
a gain in manufactured goods ex
ported o: twenty-two per cent, over
a year ago, while tho increase In
agricultural products was only 95
per cent., and later increase being
mostly due to higher prices of cot

The outlook is for an aggregate ex

never heretofore approached.

Mt. Vernon, N. Y , Dispatch, 31st.
The young man who committed
suicide in this city yesterday by
drinking carbolic acid has been
identified as J H. Tobias, who was
formerly employed as clerk at 709
Broadway. N. Y. The dead man
was an Erfelish Jew, and his broth
er and sister live in London, ina
bility to find employment led him
to take h s life. In a letter which
Tobias wrote to a friend he said :
! wi 1 go to Weber & Feld's to
night and have one more good
laugh. Then I will go up to Mount
Vernon and kill myself. Please
write to my sister and tell her that
I died of pneumonia "
So far as can be learned, Tobias
had never been In Mount Vernon
before, and it is supposed that in
comming here to kill himself he
followed the example of Robt. Mc
Curdy Lord, the broker, who came
from Bayonne, N. J . and leased a
house on Chester Hill in which he
committed suicide in order that his
wife might get the $50,000 insur
ance on his life. Tobias was identi
