THE LOCAL OUTLOOK. The shipments of iron ore still continue to distance-even thegreal record of 1890. -As the figures,elswhere sho w with exact returns for all the ports, there had betn , sbippud up to November 1st, 7,823,251 .gross tons, or 382,677 tons more than at the same date in 1890, and 1,805,492 tons m.ore ban last year's shipments at Noyem >er 1. The end of safe navigation is o near that, it is a matter of close figuring with Eomo| vesselmen to ji^el in wo trips more, and • the situation as ,o wheat was such at the'opening of •be week, that many boats went for ore, fearing that a grain blockade within another week might so delay unloading fchat if they took down grain this week, a second trip would be impossible. Twelve vessels were reported n Tuesday's advices from Duluth to have gone that day for ore, rather than for wheat at four cents; The possibilities of a wheat blockade may ae figured out from this state of things at the opening of the week; 8,2,000,000 bushels at Milwaukee,Toledo. Detroit, Duluth and Chicago, und upwards of 5.000,000 bushels at Buffalo- making 37,000,000 bushels in all .waiting to move forward to New York; at New York 19,000,000 bushels, with u capacity of 26,000,000 bushels, anda'Ciir- rent-'shipiuent abtoad of about half the amount received, Under these conditions ttito initUlla of another week might see .New York calling u halt. Ore freights are steady at $1.30 from Ashlaad, $1,10 from Marquette cents from Escanaba.

' :• : ' ' PIQ IRON. The holding of Bessemer pig at a higher figure, -is the only |ehangb in this end of the market. Valley furnaces make $13.15 their minimum now and somepf t-hora will not accept less'than $13.25 nt. furnace. The depth reached by Bessemer in the last two weeks is emphasized by turning to our •market review of- just one year ago, which noted that,.furnacemen were standing aghast-at a sale of 13,000 tons of Bee- semer at $14.45 nt furnace. • ''£" FINISHED IHOX, ETC.

A Good Advice. •An exchange gives tho following good and timely advice: "Seethatyour chimneys do not leak sparks. It often happens that brick ehimuoys used a number of years become worn by the smoke they carry, tlio mortar drops out from between the -bricks and there gaps arc left- through which fire enough can escape to set the houso in a bla/.c. Defective Hues arc tho cause of more fires than any other single agent, not excepting;the small boy or the kcrose|ie lanfp. At' v this s.eason of the year especially, wh'en the days of hot fires aro at hand, it ;: is -time to take this matter up .and sei-lliici?all the joints are tight and that •b;is no chance in this way. The Intimidation that has Prevailed in "Upper Michigan for the Past Fifteen Years to be Exposed. The election in Gogebie county last Tuesday Wij^to a certain extent quite a republican victory. Still, owing to the fact that ofllcial ballots were peddled outside of the polls in both the fourth and fifth, is extremely probable that tho vote of both of these wards will bo thrown out. If this is done, the republican majority is decreased by at least 000, and the" election of Andy Byrnes andD. E. Sutherland is assured. With the other precincts in the upper peninsula whore it is also known that fraud have been committed, it is also a certainty that J. Maurice Finn will bo the next congressman from this district. Mr. Finn is already engaged in collecting evidence of fraud, and there is no doubt but that he will bo successful in securing a- scat in congress when ho makes a contest. 'His friends demand that ho make a contest, and Don M 1 . Dickonson, David B.

A number of Ironwood's prominent business men have secured for it an en- terpriso that will have a tendency to increase ' its population and financial standing t6 some extent. A stock company having been organized for the purpose of building and operating a chair factory, which will employ about seveny-fivo skilled workmen who have already been scoured. They are all married men and will no doubt build, each for himself, a home in the vicinity of North Park, where the factory will bo located. The company has a capital of $150,000 and will no doubt put in an establishment that will bo second to nono in this state, which, by tho way, has a number of very extensive concerns of this kind. Tho capacity of this factory will bo in the neighborhood of 000 or 700 chairs per day, which will bo of a quality that will sell ut from $9 to $14 per dozen. The building will be 50x200 feet'-which will bo commenced in about sixty days and we are informed that.the first chair, for which the manager already lias tho order, will be a'lOx.14 oak-bottomed structure whiulv will be occupied for the coming four years by,Grover Cleveland, ilerstood tl:at the companies are perfectly satisfied.,—Duluth Newfa Tribune, Tuesday, Nov. 8. : Pay, Your Election Beta.

So far as Mr. Finn is concerned, tho presentation of evidence shall bo so strong, that a committee appointed by a democratic houso would hardly dare to make a report in opposition to his being seated. Wo know of nearly one hundred persons from whom affidavits can be secured to help Mr. Finn out in this contest. W» Jpnly hope that every person who Knows of intimidation which has been resorted to in previous elections will call to TUB ADVOCATE ollico to give .testimony of his knowledge. Every person who'possesses knowledge of the use of blue tickets, tissue ballots, und the resorting to intimidation, should call at.this office and give his evidence. We^iow have an opportunity to secure the election of a man M'ho is an honest representative of the people, and who will do* his utmost to honestly represent the interest of tho homesteaders and the miners. ^Consequently eyery person having evidence of any fraud that has been committed in the upper peninsula during the past ten or fifteen years, should come forward and expose past- treachery and intimidation. A good, strong case must be presented. And why? Because some of the millionaire democrats of the district who are associated in business with republicans have seen fit to treat the candidacy of Mr. Finn in a very cool msmner.

Tho" contrary has been the. case in southern states But a new status of affairs has beo iiiauguarated in northern states, am hereafter intelligence shall reign su promo.' It is a notorious fact that tlu 1 corporation to whom has been giver over half the land in this district-—in i district as largo as several .of the-No* England states—havo controlled tl election of oilr congressman, and cvt the election of the United States sonn tors fi'om this state. The people of th district have novov been represented r a mall 'who was not a tool of those la / grabbers—os those thieves who Ii thwarted the greatest mining distric tho world. WHAT ARK WE GOING TO ABOUT IT? Shall we always be fools? : -, Shall we always be treated as si: v of corporate power? Shall we allow the hind thievji continue in possession of their ill-<f<< • ton goods, now that'wo are tohav* 1 honest administration?

It is m safe for every workingman to sig such a petition. A man's first du. , is,to his wife und family. Men shou" remember this. Still, there will be sudlctent number of signatures to a memorial to congress setting, forl thatJ'. Maurice Finn has been d feated through illegal and fradulei methods, to secure him tho seat t which he is rightly entitled; Tho people want him there. W need him there, and if we exert our selves, he will be tho successor of th. millionaire mill-owner whose onl; object in going to Washington is t: secure appropriation for tho improvement of Menominee river, upon th banks pf which he ownea a mill. Tho people can feel assured th this light in behalf of Mr. Finn wi be waged most vigorously.
