Q. Dun & CO.'B weekly review o£ trade says: The mosl significant thing this week has been the entire absence of the customary nervous frlfiht before or after the meeting of congress, the president'* message, and the treasurer's report. No one showed the least alarm, and nobody could (Ind a reason for any. Money ftnd stock and grain markets moved on exactly as If the government were automatic, certain to do or say no more than the people had already decided and expected, and so the gradual betterment since October continues. There Is a larger demand for products In nearly all the great Industries, larger export demand for foreign needs, a more healthy <!arne«tlt: demand since seasonable weather arrived, and a comforting conviction that November business, the blffgest ever done In this country In any month, was but a step toward something better. Export* Alieiul of Last Year. Exports.last year In December were marvelous, but this year are starting far ahead. The Atlantic wheat exports, flour Included, have been for the week 5,636.767 bushels, against 4,312,137 last year, and Pacific exports 656,523 bushels, against 973,083 last year, and prices have declined 2% cents for cash, but western receipts of 10,135,109 bushels, agalnet 6,213,471 from last year's great crop stops argument. So the corn exports were 4,151 igl, against 3,313,OSti last year, and such a foreign deme.nd at prices much higher than last year and with wheat cheaper is proof of a state of things abroad which Americans hardly appreciate. The price declined only ^ cent, with enormous receipts. Cotton shared In the export movement fully, and nevertheless has risen 3-16 cent in price with a feeling that estimates of yield may have been excessive. At the extremely low price yet quoted foreign buyers do not stop to calculate commercial and mill stocks on hand. Print Clotlm and Woolen OuodH. The consumption in this country Is not just now large, but the demand for goods Is better, and has lifted the price of print cloths an eighth, and some of the other goods a shade. Woolen goods have been in much better demand. The much broader market Is more healthy and promises far more for the industry, and sales of 10,655,200 pounds In two weeks past at the three chief, markets, against 10,852,700 pounds In the same weeks of 1892, are quite In line -with demand in prosperous years. Price's yielded about half a cent in November, according lo 100 quotations, and Philadelphia dispatches appear to be about a cent lower this week. The rupture of the inchoate rail combination, It appears, resulted In lower prices and larger sales in the first week of sharp competition than were realized a week ago. Prices were made in some transactions much lower than they were then or are now quoted, and while $17 at Pittsburg is now named, special orders are Bald to command lower figures. |3eavy Business Coming Forward. The ..purchase of 150,000 tons Bessemer pig at *10 at valley furnaces and 100,000 tons billets for Pittsburg works at $15.50, of which 40,000 tons went to a hoop mill, with 11,000 tons rods at Chicago at $22, and 22,000 tons plates for one concern at Pittsburg, besides enor- moua orders for bars and plates In car and ship building 1 , a steamship contract on the Delaware and a contract for 5,000 .tons for bridges at Chicago, give some idea of the heavy business coming forward, Just when the works usually expect a season of Idleness and waiting. Pig Iron has risen at the east to $11.60 and quotations average for pig throughout the country a shade higher than at arty time this year, though prices for finished products have recently been declining and are lower than in the early months of the year. This week's failures have been 248 In the United Slates, against 312 last'year, and jtwenty-two In Canada, against twenty-nine last year. SENATOR OX.W1TXK8S STAM).

Del., l.'ec. 12.—The government rested In thL- trial of Senator Kenney nt noun and John Biggs, counsel for Kenney, made his opening address,. In the afternoon Kenney took the aland in his own defense and was under examination when adjournment iVas taken In the evening. His testimony was similar to that given by him at the Hrst trial. Th0 senator testified In detail of his transactions with the bank, declaring that he never had any understanding with Uogus that his checks were to be paid out of the funds of the bank. He also : testified to having loaned Hoggs several checks after the latter's ad- mlssjon of "trouble at the bank." He declared, however, that he always paid i|p iji'hen his account was overdrawn, and ;hud several ' times been notified that'hts balance was not sufficient to meet th echccks.

All rroceedlng* NtnyoJ by it Writ Until Jan. 7 Next. Philadelphia, Dec. 12.—Supreme Court Justices Orcen and Williams have grunted a rule allowing the defendants in the Quay conspiracy case to argue a petition for a writ of certlorari removing the proceedings from the court of quarter sessions to the supreme court. The rule Is returnable Jan. 7 and all proceedings are stayed In the meantime. The defendants In the case are Senator M. 8. Quay, his son, Richard R. Quay, and ex-State Treasurer Benjamin J. Hay wood, '.•Jje trial had been fixed to begin in the court of quarter sessions here on Monday. One of the results of the rule granted by the supreme court will be to carry tile trial over beyond the term of District Attorney Graham, which will expire with the present year. Mr. Graham has been active In pushing the case and In asking the court a week or ten days ago to fix an early date for the trial, he expressed to the .court a desire lo dispose of the case during his official term of office. * The delay occasioned by the action of the (supreme court will aJso, In all probability, have the effect.of carrying the proceedings or at least the conclusion of the trial beyond the date for the election of a United States senator to succeed Senator Quay, who Is a candidate for re-election. The legislature will vote for senator on Jan. 17. The defendants are charged with conspiracy with John S. Hopkins, the cashier of the People's bank of this city, who committed suicide In March last, In the misuse of slate funds on deposit in that instltulon. The senator and his atlorneys do not hesitate to admit that their object in -securing delay for the trial is to take the case out of the hands of District Attorney Graham. Mr. Graham, they Insist, Is an enemy of the senator, and has displayed great eagerness In unjustly prosecuting him and his co-defendants. M'CUM-AGH GOES TO HAVANA.

Washington, Doc. 12.— Admiral Dow- cy's fleet will lie Hln.-ngUieiH'il shortly by the nililltlon of some serviceable gunboats. Tlie Ueiinlngtun, now at Honolulu, 1ms been ordered lo proceed to Guam In tlio Padrone group and make a survey of the harbor with a view lo the establishment there of a naval station. This done she will Join Dcwey's (leet. By that time or before the Helena will have arrived at Manila and the Concord and the Petrel, now cruising around In Chinese waters, will have reurned nial altoe'-ther the admiral will have 11 BUlIlcient force of tmnll vessels under his command to :arry out the president's policy respecting the Philippines, and to bring Into ilihmlgslon anv uf the islanders who ma} prove refractory, and to release iny Spanish prisoners held in confinement by the Insurgents. 1 Id t Mint Iti- Itnlllfuracil. The navy ilepartincnl Is now con- irinccd that It will not be practicable lo curry out a project it entertained at one time looking to the reduction of the lUnlted States naval force on 'the Asi- ntlc station, and has settled down to the conviction that the fleet must rather be considerably reinforced if the- attempt IH lo be made to maintain law and order In the 1.2CO Philippine Islands and still afford proper protection to the important interests of the United States along the great Asiatic coast line. The combined nnvul forces of Great Britain and the United States in these waters will largely exceed those of any other two nations In that quarter of the world. The necessity for maintaining a strong force in the east has brought the navy face to face with a very serious condition. Under the law passed to meet the needs of the war the terms of enlistment ot about 7,500 sailors will expire vlthln three and a half months, and the department is forbidden to reenlist them. .For Lack of Crews. The immediate result will be that nearly half the ships in commission will have to he retired from active service for lack of crews. Even at present two naval vessels, the Philadelphia and the Yorktown, are charged with the impossible task of patrolling the whole east coast line of the Pacific from Bering strolls to Cape Horn. Hawaii Is -included In their beat. Strong representations have been made to the navy department by prominent business interests looking to the reslablishment of the south Atlantic station as It was before the war on Ihe ground that United States Inlereates ore Jeopardized by the present hiatus, but the navy department finds Itself unable to do this unless congress enacts the legislation urgently requested by Secretary Long and by Assistant Secretary Allen for a general reformation and strengthening of the personnel of the navy. HAVE 40,000 PltlSONEHS. no Insurgents Coiupnl the Spnu- lurtltt to Work the Itontltt. Manila, Dec. 12.—The United States cruiser Raleigh, which left here on Dec. 3 under sealed orders, has returned. She visited Butangas to investigate the condition of southern Luzon, establish cordial relations, and prevent the smuggling of arms, several cargoes having been landed there. The cruiser found a local government established at Ba- tangos. The ofilclals, being mystified regarding the object of the warship's visit, refused to allow her officers to land until Aguinaldo had been communicated with. When permission to land had been granted tjie Americans were closely watched. Officers who strolled about the palace alone were escorted back to the place by soldiers. Several visits were exchanged and there was apparent good will In the reception tendered Americans. The Raleigh reports lhat the insurgents are armed with Mauser rllles, are well drilled, and they claim they have (0,000 Spanish prisoners, who are compelled to work on '.he roads, but who are otherwise well treated. 1'l'VKliltMit Going lo Culm. Washington, Dec. 12.—A report that President McKlnley intends to visit Cuba and Porto Hlco at the first favorable opportunity became known in the state, war, and navy department!) and was quickly made the subject of serious speculation among various ofll- :lals on account of the exceedingly Interesting questions raised. It was generally recognized that the president might naturally wish to make a personal tour of Inspection In those Islands as THE EXCEUENCE OF SYRIIP OF FIGS la due not only to the orig-inulity und Bimpliclty of the combination, liut also to tho care and skill with which it IB manufactured by sclfUtitlu j)rouci>uiis known to tlie CAUHOHNIA l'ia Sviiui- Co. only, and we wish to impress upon all the importance of purchasing the true and original rumody.

Kansas City, Deo. 12. — A dispatch from Chihuahua., Mex., says Glllett, the absconding cattle king, has spent the last ten days at the camp of J. M. Fisher, formerly a. Kansas friend of Gll- lett's. It is said that Glllett has been spending money lavishly In Durango and neighboring points and that Troxell has been with him most of the time. The Fisher ranch is qver the mountains sixty miles from Durango, and when Glllett went there Troxell remained behind. C. A. Schafer of Kansas City has succeeded In tying up several thousands of dollars deposited by Glllett In Durango, and has also gained possession of the fugitive's trunks left at that place. These proceedings gave the alarm and both Qillett and Troxell are again lost Btglit of. It is believed they have gone to Mazatlan on the Pacific coast, where they can secure passage to South America. They may have gone to the City of Mexico and thence to Vera Cruz, where they could get on shipboard. QUADRUPLE TRAGEDY. Terrible Orlmo Enacted ou a Farm Near 1'reunoil, Mlcll.
