New York opened at a decline of seven
points and was barely steady all day,
finally closing steady at 8 27 for Jan

points. Tbe decline cam jnobablj be
accounted for by larger r-ipls and

Messrs. Null Bros, who have gained
great celebrity as imp guassers say tbe
possibilities cover a range cf 7,800,000
to 9,00,COO. This is two wide a range
to bave much bearing on the market.
It appears now tbat tbe supply of
cotton coming In will be sufficient to
satisfy all demands for awhile at least.
There is a general sentiment tbat tbe
market will be made higher ip tbe end,
yet this question of big receipts, tight
money and general business depression

SENATOR GORMAN ADVISES
Don't Abase Bolting Democrats. Bry
an at Washington. Administration
will Soon Act. Popnlists Hot
Sure as Democrats.
Washington, D. C, Sep'. 21st.
Political rumors have been unusually
plentiful siDce Mr. Bryan's visit to Wash
ington he was here all day yesterday and
last night. He consulted with the men
who are managing the Washington end
of his campaign; also with Senator Gor
man, who although not otticially desig
uattd us such, is generally understood to
be in charge of Mr. Bryuu's iuterests in
the East. One of the rumors which bears
an air of prob ability is that Senator Gor
man, tried to impress upon Mr. Bryan
the advisability of changing the tone of
ftos speeches, especially 'thirtpTilcif' of
them whxh deals with the bolting Dem
ocrats. Mr. Gorman is inclined to think
it bad policy for Mr. Bryan to abine the
bolters, as he has lately been doing.
Whether he will take Mr. Gorman's ad
vice is a question. According to some of
his leading supporters, Mr. Bryan has in
sisted up:o having his own way about
the management of his campaign from the
day he was nominated. He lias a strong
belftf in the certainity that the people are
going to elect him anyway. There Is no
doubt about his believing himself to be 'a
man-of destiny,'' with as much faitn as
ever President Cleveland believed him
self to he such.
di ) matter- whether you are for or
agahist him, no man who has attended
gne of the public meetings addressed by
Mr. Bryan can truthfully deny that be is
a drawing attraction; nor that he posses
ses a. wonderful faculty for arousing en
thusiasm among his hearers. Notwith
8tan?liqg a heavv rain storm just after be
had beun his Washington speech, the
meeting was probably the largest gath
ering of the sort ever held at the Na
tional Capitol, and this, too, in the face
of ibe taot that only those holding tickets
about 2,000 could be provided with
seals. More than 20,000 stood up to bear
him among them being many from the
surrounding country who had come in
during the dty for no other purpose than
to b-ar Mr. Bryan talk. The large at

When Secretary Carlisle, whiisuow
with President Cleveland, returns to
Washington this week, it is expected thai
the policy of the administration towards
the campaign will at once become appar
ent. Inasmuch as Secretary Carlisle in
tends himself to take the stump for tbe
gold Democratic ticket, it js regarded as
doiibtml whether he will dismiss those of
bis Eubordinates who have already taken
the stump for the silver Democratic ticket
notwithstanding previous reports that he
wonld. This is merely a new applica
tion of "what is sauce for the goose is
sauce for the gander." If it be proper
for a member of the administration to
take tle stump for one ticket, it would
be'a little odd to punish another mem
ber 'for taking the stump for another
It is noticeable that although the Pop
ulist and Democratic . headquarters are

are buth working for the e'ectioq of the

dorng the chains put forward by
the , Democrats of the certainty oi

Rochester, N. Y. Notices were
posfed iu all the banks of the city to the
effect that no Canadiau silver money
woiTd be received on deposit. Ttis action
is tbe result of agitation, which has been
going on io local bunking t-irclesj on this
subject for a number ot days. It was
stated, howe er, that the boycott has bein
started by business men, aud is the out
come of a sentiment against Canadians on
account of their rufu-al to take United
States money. From now on all Canadi
an silver will be subjected to a discount
of 20 per cent. This will practically drive
it out of circulation in this city.

The dispatch adds-that the town of El
Haflr, north of Dongola, to which place
the Dervishes retreated, was captured af
ter a hot engagement
After tbe place had fallen into the
hand.3 of the expedition the Egyptains
captured twenty-seven grain laden boats,
the loss of which will prove a severe blow
to the Dervishes.
Tbe latter made desperate attempts to
recapture the boats, but a heavy fire was
pou led into them by the troops and tbe
gunboats and they were finally compelled
to abandon their attempts to regain pos
session of the bDats and tbeir cargoes.
After tbeir deveat tbe entire dervish
force retreated southward upon Dongola.
At the same time tbe expedition's steam-,
ers started for the saine plao?, And being
tbe quicker reached tbeie belore the Dev
erishes. The city was found to be deser
ted by warriors, and the steamers at ouce
landed a force of infantry to hold it until
the arrival of tbo main body of the expe
dition. At the, time Ibe dispatch was sent tbe
Devsiishes w re approaching Dongola

These defenses, however, were soon
wrecked by the heavy fire ol the Egyp

that was inanndd by the Oounaoght Rau
gers. The Dervishes stood the fire bravely,
but were finally compelled to withdraw
from the place. Their calvalry took do
pait in the engagement, remaining some
distance off in the d.sett watching tbe
result of the battle. When the British acd
Egyptians landed the entire foice retreat
The capture of the palace was hailed
with delight bj the ativ s.who have long
beeu haprud by the Dervishes. They si out

and hailed the expedition as their deliver

and there is plenty of grttn fodder lor
