WASHINGTON, Nov. 5.—The president has issued the following Thanksgiving proclamation: ; By the presiderit'of the ; United Statei of America—Proclamation:. While tha American people Should every day remember by praise and thanksgiving the' divine goodness and mercy Which have followed them since their beginning as a nation, it is fitting that one day in each year should be especially devoted to the contemplation of the blessings we have received from .the hand of God, and to the grateful acknowledgement of his loving kindness. Therefore, I, Grover Cleveland, president of the United States, do 'hereby designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of November, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to be kept and observed by all the people of our land. On that clay let us forego our ordinary work and employments and assemble in our usual places of worship, where we may recall all that God has done for us. and where from grateful hearts our united tribute of oraise and song may reach the throne of grace. Let reunions of kindred and social meetings of friends lend cheer and enjoy inent, tu duty, and let generous gifts of i charity for the relief of the poor and needy prove the sincerity of our thanksgiving. .(Signed) GJIOVEII Cr.Kvnt.ANT>.

It was caused by an attempt by the socialists to invade the Ronacher music hall, where a meeting of the liberals was being held. The object of the liberal gathering was to pass a vote of want of confidence in Dr. Kronawetter, the representative of Vienna in the reicShs- rath. The meeting was originally fixed for Friday last, but it was prevented by the action of the radicals, a body of whom invnded the hall and refused to a^low the liberals to proceed. The police finally had to clear the hall of the occupants and lock the doors. Then it was arranged to hold the meeting last evening, when only those persons who held tickets should be admitted. i As another attempt at interference I was anticipated, the socialists, in fact, having given noti-.e that they would do all in their pjwer to prevent the holding of the meeting, a strong 1 force of police was stat'oned in the vicinity oi the building, and other precautions were taken to protect the liberals. Liberal stewards were stationed in the lobby to prevent the entrance of any socialists, and a number of policemen stood at the doors to throw out, any one who tried to force his way into the hall. .

NEAV YoTiic, Nov. 0.—R. G. DUE Co.'s weekly revieAv of trade savs: ''The repeal of the silver-r.urchase act docs good already. The busine-s world in every part of the country reckons it helpful, and the tone of trade is more confident. It is hardly time as yet for the effects to be felt to any great extent, in manufactures, but bankers are more liberal in accommodation and merchants more hopeful in purchase. It is well to remember that the act will do less good than if it had been passed early in the spring or without delay after congress assembled. It cannot now prevent several thousand failures Avhich have already occuned nor relieve creditors from embarrassments. 11 cannot now save from loss a multitude of manufacturing- estaolishments Avhicli closed because the future seemed uncertiiu. It Avill go far to restore business confidence, which was much needed, but many may expect from the measure larg.r results than can at this late day be realixed. "The action of congress had less visible influence upon speculative markets for products, in part becausa foreign markets obstinately refused to accept the higher valuations which speculators here tried to establish. Though people across the water awa d unstinted praise to those who secured the passage of the repeal bill, there is not much disposition to pay higher prices on that account for Avheat or cotton.

Tho Chicago receipts were lis;ht at 178 cars, against 881) a year ago, but tho blackboard showed 17U.UOO bu in and only H 1,000 bu out yesterday. The northwestern, markets had another heavy movement of 8TO cars, but little under the KO cars a year ago. Eight primary markets had over 1,000,000 bu reotipts and less (him 80J,000 bu shipments. Export clearances were disappointing with only li(i,000 bu wheat and 28,000 brls of Hour out of the same ports. New Orleans added 144,000 wheat, raising the total close to 4UO.OOO wheat and Hour. There was much conflicting news from the north Treat Dispatches said re-jeipts will fall off at puce, Later and apparently more reliable information was that farmers' deliveries in the big spring wheat country have dropped off very materially, and that tbia must show soon at Minneapolis andDulutu. The estimate for Saturday for this market was only 145 cars. The market started at 63%c December and 70^@70%o May; got a dip to 63>$c and?'l)>£c; a bulge to 04c and ri}£(g>71>4c; a second dip to 63% and 70%c; a second bulge to (Mo and 71,Y(<£7iWo• dropped to 68^0 and 71c, and then moved up to M%@64%c and7IKo.

They -jeered every liberal Avho arrived and tried to block his passage, but 305 liberals succeeded iis gaining entrance to the building under protection of the police. Tho mob continued to increase in numbers and to prow more boisterous. They shouted "DoAvn wi-h the liberals,'" "Down with the dogs," and "Down Avith the cowardly enemies of the people," and sung the labor sonf, "Hed Arbeit," The mob, as the noise increased, greAv more bold, and they finally made a charge upon the police cordon and tried to force their way into the hall. The police Avere badly handled by the crowd. The commanding inspector was knocked dOAvn and trampled upon. His men in trying to rescue him wielded their sabers right and left, wi«h great fierceness. The scene for a time was a fearful one. Both sides fought savagely, and the result was many bloody heads among the mob from the sabers of the police, while all the police Avere bruised and beaten, and their uniforms torn. The fight caused a panic among the people in the vicinity, and houses and shops were closed and bolted. The police, finding that they could not cope with the mob, telephoned for reinforcements, which soon arrived. The mob Avas then driven out of Spelling strasse, although they resisted every step of the Avay. They were at last dispersed, but later they gathered again in groups in different parts of the cily and listened to violent speeches by leaders of the socialist party, some of whom urged tho people to rise and overthrow a state Avhi -h cut them down for the sake of the liberals, At 0 o'clock the greatest excitement continued and the police in strong forces were engaged in breaking up the different gathering's. The number wounded Avas large, although the exact figure cannot be learned because many of the wounded were carried off by their comrades. The wounded police were taken lo the hospital. One of them is dangerously hurt. Three of the rioters were arrested, including tho man who led the attack on the police. A body of the socialists who participated" in the music hall attack afterward made a domostration in front of the palace of the Archduke Wilhelm in King strasse, shouting: "Long' lh-e the republic." The police made a number of furious charges before they succeeded in s -altering the mob. Many of the rioters Avere Avounded. In tare.

LONDON, Nov. (i.-The Globe printed a sensational report to the effect that a loaded conical bomb Aveighing- seven pounds was found on Wednesday last upon a buttress of Westminster bridg-e, which is close to the houses of parliament. The bomb was taken possession of by the police and Avas conveyed to Scotland yard. Inquires made at Scotland yard by a representative of the Associated press confirmed the story published in the Globe. The inspector in charg-e admitted that the police were in possession of a piece of iron of conical shape which Avas believed to be a bomb loaded with explosives. Additional inquiries seem to show that there has undoubtedly been an attempt to blow up that part of the bridpe which is near the terrace of the house of commons. Scotland yard otlicials, who first denied that a dynamite plot had been discovered, admit that a dynamite plot has been discovered, though they say that it was a plot of no importance.
