Wioos ' February Statements -Atchison Matters. Dwpita its importance to the country at kiss. Pm Clevelands veto of the seignior, bill, averting a disastrous flood of Inflated silver currency, was scarcely a factor in speculation yesterday. It it gently ruffled the surface of the street like a dune zephyr might disturb the mirrored expanse of an August sea, aai was gone. The country drew a deep and devont breath of relief, but the traders merely took their profits, shrugged their shoulders ani turned to the weather map and the tariff reports for further inspiration. It must not be supposed from this that the veto message was not discussed by the speculators. It was discussed and with animation at times, especially m the light of its very plain intimation that the silver ghes was, not yet coponletely downed. This was the only fly in the ointment, but even that was not a big enough fly to affect the general level of stock values. As a whole a careful reading of the message over night resulted in a general consensus of opinion very favorable to its contents. and this ooinion was arrived at irrespective party prejudice. Here are a few ef the expert financial verdicts on tlx Clevelands literary effort : " The anxiously awaited message vetoing the seigniorage bill made its aDpearance yesterday, and was in every respect a satis-factory document. It clearly emphasized the president's position on currency matters, and announced to the world in unmistakable terms that this country is not going pn a silver basis, and that our gold reserve will have to be materially increased before any more silver can be put into circulation. Wall Street Sews. ' The adverse fate of the Eland measure will have the effect of strengthening confidence here and abroad. Its real significance is that of an object lesson which shows that there is a safe barrier between the country and reckless financial legislation. Its bearing on the stock exchange is another matter. Xew York Stockholder. After waiting until almost the very last moment, the president sent in bis veto of the seigniorage bill yesterday. It was a long document, and evidently Intended to give aid and comfort to the enemy he has fought for years. New York Indicator We think the effect of the veto will wholesome, both at home and abroad, and ' London showed symptoms of its appreciation by coming into the market as a buyer mi the reaction in the last half hour of business. Watson & Gibson. The first opinion of the veto message in financial circles, as indicated by the ticker, hone ot disappointment, in that the presi-- dsnt did not strike harder at silver as silver. But Hr Cleveland is evidently not dis- posed to renounce silver, the drift of his .usssage being to let well enough alone, to maintain the parity of the two metals, and for that purpose to strengthen our gold reserve. The message will appear better as it is more generally digested. BostonNews Bureau. The president has at last delivered himself of the veto message. Its proposition is to trade seigniorage for bonds. He lets go of all principle in this proposition, for i f comage of the seigniorage is a bacl thing, it should not be accepted under any circumstances. He also uncovers in his proposition, the weakness of the treasury. For, if it were not weak, he would not be so desirous of bonds. The veto is unfortunate. New York Financial News.

Considerable- interest naturally centers in the prospective Atchison reorganization. A New iprk dispatch says that Mr Fiem-lng. who is there as the representative of tlieEnglish interests, says that his people desire the cancellation of ail contracts with unprofitable subsidiary roads. At present there exists half a dozen self-constituteu "Atchison reorganization committees. each with its plan, and no two plans are alike. There are some 13.000 stockholders. (Some of the bondholders want the stockholders Assessed, but any out-and-out assessment is opposed bv the directors, receivers and large security holders. An effort is being made to bring all the would-be reorganizers together and evolve a harmonious scheme.' There are several interests dominating the situation, some of which want to squeeze out every one not in accord with them, and this makes the progres of the hannonizers slow. Last year the West End street railway company relaid and wired for electric operation its Huntington av tracks from IN est Chester pk to within 800 feet of Lougwood av. It is now completing the renewal of the remainder of the Brookline line. The company is building in Cambridge four miles or more of new track between Harvard sq and Mt Auburn, on Mt Auburn st. Concord av and Huron si. and will take the present tracks out of Brattle st, when the new line is in operation. About a mile of it is completed. The West End electricians have decided to do away with the large copper wire laid underground between the rails for the return of the electric current to the power house, and to utilize the rails for this purpose by connecting the ends of the rails with two copper wire loops. This method will, it is said, increase the conductivity of the return circuit teuiold. and is expected to stop practically all of the trouble caused by escaping electricity. Just as much copper is used by this method as by the continuous return wire, and there is no difference in the expense. The Philadelphia Press says that the counsel and friends of Erastus Wimau expect to find justirication for the indorsement of the payers name in the decision of one of the courts that a paver who has drawn up a check payable to John I oe may indorse John Does name and thereby draw the payer's money out of the bank. The annual report of the Franklin mining company for 1893 compares with the previous year as follows: 4,225,188 pounds of ore was produced in 1893, a decrease over the previous year of S46.303 pounds : refined copper 3,504.244, a decrease of 265.361. The actual and estimated receipts amounted to $347,343, a decrease of $95,692: total receipts $352,667, a decrease of $93,927. The net income for the year was $9899, compared with 1892 shows a decreaseof $83,286- Dividends amounting to $80,000 were disbursed, these being identical with 1892. The surplus on Jan 1, 1894, was $264,020, a decrease of $166,572. The Northampton street railway company will build to Williamsburg, Mass, at a cost of $70,000, paralleling the New Haven road.

Many Stocks on the New York Market Continue Firm. Nsw York, March 30 Neither the London demand for American securities nor the orders executed here for dealers in that market for American securities reflected any particular enthusiasm over the veto of the silver seigniorage bilL Still, London was a moderate buyer of securities, and the purchases by arbitrage houses late in the day was evidence of a belief that the London market will show a certain power of absorption tomorrow morning just as it did today. In the early dealings the operators for short account, who evidently began to test the market this afternoon, continued their operations; but as they were the principal sellers prices did not yield much. As the day advanced and no pressure to sell stocks appeared, the short interest ide during the previous 24 hours becai nervous ana began to cover. During the last half of the day Chicago gas received more attention than it has for some time and scored a net advance of 3 percent, which was the greatest recorded. In point of activity it ranked second only to bt Paul, which was very strong, and closed a point higher than yesterday. Other noteworthy dealings were In Sngar refining, Atchison, Chicago, Burlington & Ouincy, Chicago, Ohio & Reading, but of these, the first named was the only one that made any material progress toward higher prices. The greatest net advances otber than uhose noted were in stocks that received but comparatively little attention, namely, Louisville & Nashville, Union Pacific, National lead, American cotton oil. American tobacco. Missouri Pacific and Northern Pacific preferred. NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. Yesterday's Closing Transactions at the Stock Exchange. New York.

March 30 A prize fight took place last night at a farm about two miles out of the city. Very few knew the mill was to take place. The principals were Billy Fox and Charlie Grier, two local pugilists. They fought in a 16-loot ring, and a draw was declared after 10 rounds. The police made a raid and arrested Charlie Grier. Before the municipal court today Grier turned states evidence ana gave the police the names of all present. The list included about 300 of the young bloods in the city, many belonging to our best families. Warrants were sworn out this morning and the parties were summoned before the court. Several got wind of what was going on and went gunning out in the country. About a dozen were fined from tl2to18, and the rest will have to settle as soon as they can be found. The affair caused considerable excitement today, as all the parties concerned were well known about town. Funeral of George Ticknor Curtis.

SATURDAY, MARCH CLOYED WITH SWEETS. Enforced Shutdown of the Refineries. heavy Receipts of Raws and Excessive Meltings GInt the Market. Maple Suffar Coming and New Syrup in Kits, Kegs and Cans. Receipts of raw sugar have been heavy of late, and meltings have been kept up beyond the requirements of consumption until a large accumulation awaits a market, says the Sugar Trade Journal. This condition of affairs has caused a shutdown of several of the trusts refineries. One in Philadelphia and one in' the hub continue in operation, however. New York advices yesterday were to the effect that some of the outside sugar refineries are considering the advisability of following the trusts example. ' The stock of refined is accumulating in all holders hands. Net cash quotations are unchanged at 3c tor centrifugals and 3.98c for granulated. Total stocks in all the principal countries are 1,800.863 tons, against 1,597.514 tons at same dates last year. Afloats to the United States from all countries are estimated at 65,000 tons, against 79,000 tons last year. In the afloats are 1000 tons of beet sugar, whose shipment has been reported from Hamburg and Bremen during the week. Maple 6ugar receipts are beginning to be quite liberal in this market, but the ae-mand is not very heavy. New syrup is also offering in kits, kegs and cans at 55g 65c gal. The 6ugar sells to receivers figlOc lb, FINNY FOOD FOR THE FINICAL. Fishing Fleet Lands Large Cargoes of Fresh Mixed Stock. Fresh mixed cargoes continue to come in abundantly.

JUJSTIN DEAD. Her Works Had Made Her Name a Familiar One in all the Land Of Puritanical Descent. Mrs Jane G. Austin, the novelist, died yesterday morning at hotel Waterston onBulfinch pi, where she had lived for some time. She passed away after an illness of several months. Mrs Austin first saw the light in Worcester and had lived almost all herlife in Boston, except during the summer seasou, when she removed to Plymouth. Mrs Austins father was a well-known antiquarian in his day, and her brother, Hon John A. Goodwin, was for several years a member of the bouse of representatives, and for two years served as speaker. He also had literary inclinations, and a work from his pen called The Pilgrim Republic is today considered one of the ablest and most authentic histories of the early settlers that has ever been written. Mrs Austin commenced tii write when she was very young, all her productions finding a ready sale with the local press. At the age of 19, having married, she gave ud her literary work for a time, but resumed it 11 years later. Her first book of any great prominence, and which had a very large sale some time ago it was in its 27th edition, and is still m demand was A Nameless Nobleman,' published in 1881. The character from which the book takes ; s name was her mothers great grandfather, and in writing it Mr Austins object was not so much to give historv as romance : but she has a singular gift of combining the two, as is illustrated in her later works. , A volume of Nantucket anecdotes published some time previously, found, a good sale, and the books dealing with her ancestors and their times which she had since written. iStandish of Standish. Dr LeBaron anc His Daughters and Betty Alden.t. which is the volume now claiming the attention of the public, have all enjoyed a big sale. Of the latter book, the first edition was all sold before it was off the press. Mrs Austin confessed to a superstitious idea about the first day of October, and for the last four years she bad commenced a book on that date. This year, although sick and barely able to sit up in bed, she wrote the first pages of her next storv. She had received many letters of a very pleasant nature from all sorts of people, including some of the brightest lights of literature of this and other cities. For 10 years, from 1860 to 1870, this gifted woman lived at Concord, where her closest friend was Louisa M. Alcott. The two young women were in the habit of comparing notes of their successes. Mie was a high churchwoman, a member of St Johns on Bowdoiu st, and devoted to the church and its work. She was of the purest puritanical stock 16 of her ancestors, on both her father's and mother's side having come over in the Mayflower. Sue was a large, motherly-looking woman of perhaps 65. with a kindly, genial countenance, a mass of silvery white hair partially covering her forehead in ringlets, and a sweet and sympathetic voice. Mrs Austin contributed to The Globe symposium Santa Claus on Dec 23. which was the last of her writings been in print. IN MEMORY OF THE JASONS MEN. Touching Services Held in the Congregational Church, Well fleet. Wkllfleet, March 30 The wreck of the unfortunate British ship Jason during a northeast hurricane on the night of Dec 6, 1893, ou the reefs off cape Cod was vividly recalled to mind this afternoon by public ceremonies held in the First Congregational church in memory of the sail ors who manned the unfortunate vessel. The sea cast upon the shores during the next few days 18 bodies from the wreck, The only survivor, Samuel J. Evans, who was picked up from the beach, after being washed ashore and restored to life, identified the remains of the following seamen: C. Anderson, C. Nillson, Joseph E. Owen, F. Hummingson, Hugh McLean, Peter Black. William Young, Cairnes. A. Galbraith, A. R. Dawes John McMillian, Michael Mulligan, Antone, John Bullivan, Murphy, Wil liam Cotter, J. O. Seavy. The four latter bodies were cared for by friends in this country. The remaining 14 were interred in a prominent place back of the receiving tomb in Oak Dale cemetery. At 1.3o oclock today the people of Well-fleet and neighboring towns assembled to witness the last sad rites with which a Christian people honor their dead. A! though strangers cast up bv the sea on a strange shore to be buried in a foreign land, many a tear was shed to their memory, for the people of WellHeet know by sad experience wbat it is to have relatives and friends sail from home and never return. The service opened with an organ voluntary by Allen Higgins, followed by the appropriate hymn, How mysterious are thy wavs, which was beautifully rendered by the choir. Prayer was offered bv Rev J. W. Hayley of Truro, aud reading of the scriptures followed by Rev E. D. Hall of the M. E. church, Weilfleet. Rev D. VV. Clark addressed the audience. He said in part : Seven of the bodies have never been found, and very few of those that were found have been claimed by relatives in this country or in any otber. In one sense we seem to be powerless to bestow comfort npon the bereaved and to give light unto those wbo are wading in the dreadful dense fog of uncertainty as to whether their loved ones are dead or yet alive, because of our lack of neoessary knowledge of affairs. Borne of us Have, doubtless, experienced the suspense of not knowing whether our dear ones were saved or lost when exposed on the sea or in some battle, so we are prepared to sympathize with all such. Let us, therefore, put all the heart and soul we possess into this memorial service today. Be assured God will bless those we represent by this service, especially the living kindred and fnendsor the deceased. May we not also hope that God took good care of the poor brothers who perished in the sea on the evening of Dee 5. Let us hope and pray that no other ship or crew may ever experience such a fate on our shore. It is said that the wounded deer sheds tears, but it belongs to man alone to weep with thm that, weep. 'i hank God for the assurance that m lifes dreariest hours even, in all his peoples affliction he is himself afflicted. No shattered box of ointment We ever need regret. For out of disappointment Flow sweetest odors yet. The closing hymn, Asleep in Jesus. was then rendered, the benediction pronounced by Rev John Fisk of Truro, and the closing act in the great drama of life was completed. 'ihe captains of various life saving stations on the cape were present. MUSICAL BICYCLISTS. Cycle Club of Boston College Entertained Its Friends.

Many Parts of the Country Have a Setback by Cold Weather. Bradstreets Eeports Views the Future With Great Confidence. New York, March SO Bradstreets tomorrow will say: The features of the business week include evidences of increasing trade at eastern cities, which are offset by checks to the movement of staple merchandise at other centers, owing to storms and cold weather and by damage to crops caused by the unusually low temperature west, northwest and south. While eastern manufacturers of woolens are buying raw material only as orders are received, dre.-.s goods manufacturers are fairly active. The more important distributors of staples at eastern cities are practically agreed that little will be accomplished until tne tariff question is settled, as prevalent uncertainty causes retail dealers to continue to buy in small quantities only to replace stocks consumed. Philadelphia textile manufacturers make an unsatisfactory report, most of them operating part of their plantoniy.bat morocco dealers report a better demand, and there is a gain in the request for slices, paints and glass. Baltimore millinery jobbers report trade quite active and the volume in excess of that for March, 1893, although iu some other lines the reverse is true ; an increase in business is expected within a fortnight. Trade has improved at Pittsburg, where inquiries for staples have been increasing. Jobbers feel encouraged, and the increased demand for Bessemer iron and steel and stronger prices, with growing activity at the mills, emphasize Pittsburgs success in meeting the demand for the steel and iron products. There is a smaller volume of trade in most lines at Chicago, an exception being among dealers in pig iron, where the demand exceeds expectations. The industrial situation is unimproved, although more operatives are employed at leading centers east and south. The general tendency of prices is upward. . Bank clearings this week (one day short) aggregate $741,000,000 at cities throughout the United htates, 12 percent less than in the week before, and 29 percent less than in the corresponding week last year. The failures in New England during the first quarter of 1894 numbered 678, liabilities $7,113,808, assets $2,931,233, against 493 failures, liabilities $7,888,966, assets $3,223,803 during the first quarter of 1893. The details of the proposed new dominion tariff having been made pnblic.general trade is more active at tfie larger cities in Ontario and Quebec. ON OR ABOUT JUNE L When Fitchburg Patrons Will Enter and Depart From Union Station. It is announced on the authority of Pres Tuttle of the Boston & Maine railroad and of Pres Marcy of the Fitchburg railroad that the latter road will enter and become a part of the new union station on or about June 1. It is expected that the new building will by that time be -completed, and then all the roads entering the city at its northern side will arrive in and depart from one station. The know nothing crossing, from which the eastern and western divisions have suffered on account of the Fitchburg tracks will be abolished. This will leave only one "know nothing. that of the Grand Junction line. which runs from the tracks of the Boston & Albany at Brighton, through Cambridge. Somerville, Charlestown.Ever-ett and Chelsea to East Boston, thereby crossing the tracks of the eastern and western divisions of the Boston & Maine railroad and of the Fitchburg railroad. It is said that the contract between the Fitchburg anU Boston & Maine road provides that the old Fitchburg depot shall not be used for any other than railroad uses without the consent of the Fitchburg road, and that the Boston & Maine has an option on the purchase of the property.
