New York, Nov. 6.—Bradstreet's says today: Killing frosts south, the raising of quarantine embargoes against nearly all states invaded by yellow fever, the resumption of traffic, and a prospective revival in demand for staple merchandise, constitute the trade features of the week. Rains in cfntral western and western states, followed by colder weather, have fa voted farmers and stimulated demand from interior storekeepers. This has had a favorable effect, at Louisville, St. Louis and Kansas City. Larger eastern cities report no increase in the general merchandise movement. Leading manufacturing industries continue fairly well employed. "While there has been moderate reaction fn iron ar.d steel, furnaces and mills continue well employed and the outlook for higher quotations next year is unchanged.

Chicago, Nov. 6.—The supreme court of this stare has just handed down a decision of great interest to insurance men all over the country.

London, Nov. 6.—A dispatch to The -Times from Rio Janeiro, dated yesterday, says: "At 1 o'clock this afternoon a soldier of the Tenth battalion, which constitutes part of the local garrison, attempted to shoot President Morats with a pistol.

New York, Nov. 6.—The Herald prints an interview with Senor Jose Canalejas, editor of El Heraldo, whose mission to the United States and Cuba is expected to give him additional weight in the councils of Spain when he returns there. The distinguished visitor said: "I have in the first place no official character here, but I have spoken ar.d written too much on Cuban affairs not to believe It a political and moral duty to determine on the spot the truth or error of my opinions. Further, I have the responsibility of a journal to which I myself contribute, and I believe also that the journeys of political men to the colonies should not be alone to fulfil official functions. So I came to see the true situation, to make a confidential report to my friends of the government and to make public use of my information in the press and in the cortes. Such questions must be studied on the spot. So after a couple of weeks in Xew York I shall sail for Cu.Da ind visit all the provinces of the island." "Do you consider that the recall of General Weyler was tantamount to a total disapproval of his acts during his tain generalship? Is Genera] Blanco .ikely, from what you know of his reputation, to pursue both a more vigorous and a more merciful policy?" "I think that the present government las never agreed with the ideas of General Weyler, and everybody expected his recall the day aftr the nomination of Senor. Sagasta. Marshal Blanco and I the generals who accompanied him are ; resolved to strike hard blows at thi- in' surgents, but also to follow a policy of j indulgence, and not to be influenced by ' suspicions and denunciations. As for ', the position of the United States, I j think that your country has the right j to hold and to expres? its views, on tne Cuban problem, but noc to go beyond that. And it is the expeditions and tbs- public actions against the rights uf Spain which have caused the protests of the lawyers, of the press and of various other Spanish elements." Havana, Nov. 6.—The proclamation of Captain General Blanco to the Spanish army in Cuba, which will soon be issued, contains the usual exhortations to the troops in r.egard to maintaining discipline, etc.. and adds that property should be respucted-.and urges that the utmost energy be\displayed during the fighting with the. Ajemy ^and until victory is achieved, after which the soldiers are instructed to act with clemency towards the vanquished, takingr^ar? of and curing the wounded'prisoners^ft'ho are to be delivered to th'fe proper rhiU- tary authorities. Families needing assistance, and unarmed people who offer no resistance, are to be taken to the nearest village and are to receive help during a stated time, according to orders previously issued. CTHAXS ISSCE A MANIFESTO. Declare They Will Never Accept Anything from Spain but Independence. New York, Nov. 6.—Checkering hall was crowded last night with enthusiastic Cubans, who applauded when the speakers declared that Cuba would never accept reforms from Spain, that peace can only come after the evacuation of the island by the Spanish army and that the Cuban patriots will fight to the death for their independence. A manifesto addressed to the government of the Cuban republic was issued yesterday by Cubans in this city. It has already been signed by nearly all the leading members of the Cuban colony here and will be sent for additional signatures to every part of the United States where there Is a Cuban colony or club. The document will also be submitted for signatures to the Cuban colonies in Mexico, the Antilles, Central and South America. Paris and Rome. It will afterward be transmitted to the Cuban provisional government. Copies of it in Spanish and English will be mailed to every part of the world. The document states the causes which compel the Cubans to accept no transaction with Spain which is not based on the absolute independence of ijuba. The signers pledge themselves to support the men fighting in Cuba until Cuban Independence is accomplished. A copy of the manifesto and a Lst of the names of some of the more prominent persons who have signed it will be sect to the government at "Washington, that its »ignificance may^b* better appreciate^ Atiibawutdor \Vlitte Is IndometL Madrid, Nov. 6.—The government has expressed its satisfaction with the state ments of the United States ambassador to Germany, Andrew D. "White, on thi subject of Cuba, as reported in Tues day's issue of the Vienna Tageblatt, where he is represented as saying in the course of ac interview that the Americans "will patiently await the realization of autonomy, and when It is realized the relations between Spain and tht United States will return to their iior mal condition." This statement o: White is regarded in official circles as accurately reflecting the real opinion of the American government, and as virtually repudiating anything to the contrary in the much-discussed article L> Hannls Taylor in an American maga- line, although ArbassadorVv'hite did not Mention Taylor's name. HORSE SHOW HAD TO WAIT. Vhile John A. Logan Settled a Difficulty with the State Board. Chicago, Nov. 6. —For forty minutes Thursday night the fate of the Chicago horse show hung in the balance. The largest throng of men and women which has yet gone down to the Coliseum to see and be seen was surging into the arena. A dozen saddle horses were cantering about the red oval of the ring waiting for judges and attendants who came not. The state board of agriculture, in its rooms in the building, was holding a council ot war to consider an ultimatum from Manager John A. Logan, backed up by the judges and many of the exhibitors. This announced that unless an apology be rendered to Logan for insults and indignities heaped upon him and the absolute management of the exhibition be turned over to him, neither judces nor exhibitors would appear in the ring Thursday night. There has been a great deal of friction between Logan and the state board from the first and the exhibitors and those who have guaranteed the sta te board against loss of money have aided with Logan. One thing 1 done by the state board was to nail up the private passage to the arena from Logan's office; but the climax came when the gats keepers refused to let Logan (and some friends who had been driving) in at one of the gates. This settled it and Logan and the exhibitors held a meeting, at which resolutions of apology were framed for the state board to adopt. These resolution included one turning aver the absolute management to John A Logan. They were adopted, and the show goes on. WAS A~WARD~bF THE STATE, Cot Married and Was Immediately Torn from Her Husband's Side. Milwaukee, Nov. 6.—Vesta Simpson and Louis Schoerbaum were married Sunday by Justice Kitzerow, and ten minutes later Officer Love, of the Industrial School for Girls, appeared upon the scene, and, drawing a revolver, seized the bride. He carried her away in triumph, and since that time she has been locked up in the institution. Her husband has called each day accompanied by her father, but has been denied the privilege of seeing his wife. Vesta Simpson is now 20 years of age, and some three years ago was committed to the industrial school until she should be 21 years old. Six months ago she was released "on parole" and assigned to the family of Mrs. Ellen R. Coleman, a wealthy south side family, where she was to serve at a weekly salary of $1.75. It is claimed at the industrial school that the girl had no right to get married without permission from th» school directors. CASHIER MADE BAD INVESTMENTS. Result Is That Grayling's FopulAtfojte nlnd Grieves for Its Losses. 0*^" Grayling, Mich., Nov. 9T—The last three days have been'the most exciting in the historytif Grayling. Men and women walk thje streets moaning their lo^ys through the failure of the Exchange bank. Many have lost every cent they had in the world. A man and his wife who cook in a camp sent their pay to the bank regularly every month, and by economy saved JSOO. Now they are penniless. An old soldier, too sick to work, had ss.ved $100 to keep himself an-d wife un- tii pension time comes around again, but today he has not a dollar. Investigation discloses the fact that Cashier Staler loaned money on unindorsed notes, and that he invested with J. O. Bell a sum of money in gypsum and timber lands in the upper peninsula of Michigan which proved unprofitable. ' A warrant has beer. Issued for Cashier Staley, who:=e whereabouts is still a mystery.

While >"o*Ii Claim* That Doubtful One— Another Difficulty Rained About Ui« Vot«* of Soldier* at the Dayton Home- Trouble In Muryluiiil Also. Columbus. O., Nov. 6.—The Ohio legislature stands 74 Republicans, 70 Democrats, and one doubtful on th« official returns received up to this writing. With a dozen or more of the eighty- eight counties very close there hav* been no material changes except i» Wood county, which will be claimed by both parties till the courts pass on the action of the supervisors. Thera have been no unusual proceedings before the returning boards of any of the counties except that of Wood, although both parties have had their representatives and attorneys in the county seats wherever the vote was close. Chairman McConvIlle, of the Democratic state mittee, has not changed his claim of a Democratic majority on joint ballet, and will not do so till the official ro- turns of all counties are in and show the results to differ from those he has at hand. Chairman McConville and others from the Democratic state headquarters went to Cincinnati last night to confer with Mr. John R. McLean aru other party leaders regarding the contests that are to be made in the close counties. Naj>li Claims the Odd BT umber. Chairman Nash insists that the legis- ature stands 75 Republicans to 70 Democrats, and that the majority on Joint ballot for senator will not be less tham He says he is satisfied with the situation in Wood county. What "he feared was that the official count might wip* out the small Republican plurality Im. that county. Since the face of the official tally sheets shows a plurality of 31 for the Republican representative Judge Nash says he is willing a.nd rea-Jy to have any court pass, on the oa?e. Xe says the la»-'pro»WdPt>iatTne mem-' >ers of-^Sards of election cannot go be- the returns, and the supreme court . has held that they have.no minjsl'^Hal IOWCTS whatever.'and cannot'Vcar-evl- dence or, use their discretion in throw- ng ou.t any votes. ~ Wood County Ca*e Submitted to Court. ;ln Wood county Norris, tne Repub- ic&n candidate for representative, flk-d a'protest against the board counting he vote of Freedom township becausa he ballots had been tallied in blocks of five. This precinct gave Norris 151 and Mears. the Democratic candidate for representative, 263. If the vote of the .ownship had been thrown out it would have, increased the plurality of. Norrfu by 112, but it was counted- The Repub- Icans insist tha^'Norris will be declared elected ii^'Wood county and that he legislature stands 75 to 70. Counv: for both the Democratic and the Republican committees at Bowling Green lave agreed to submit the Wood county case at once to the circuit court. and the lawyers on both sides went to Toledo for that purpose. The court wilt be asked to decide whether the election board can go behind the return?. Auother Danger for ITmnnm.

If thatvole should be thrown out the Democrat* would gain two representative* from Montgomery county and one •enat-;--, enough (on the claims of the Republicans) to make the legislature stand 7^t Democrats to 72 Republicans on Joint jallot.
