Weekly RevSexv of Trade says: Business improvement meets many '•obstacles and it is scarcely as distimet ,&5 it has been in recent weeks. Strikes have cheeked the improvement in Building and some "other 1 trades, And scarcity of coke has caused the closing of some ironworks, while a strike of all bituminous iron workers is.ordered. and may prove serious. More favorable cr^op Deports than were expected, which jtibtify larger hope for next fall, have arrested the upward tendency in prices of products. TJie renewal of gold ex» ports occasion somedisquietude, The gradual exhaustion of goods in the hands of dealers makes the consumption of the people more distinctly felt and apparently larger, and this -demand increases with the gain la the number of hands at work. It can not be said that the uncertainty as to the future has materially diminished, but there is evidently growing an impression that there'will be no important legislation on the currency or the tariff. This impression, whether erroneous or not, influences the action of many. !On the whole, though progress is still obstructed by uncertainties, it has not been arrested. The most cheering sign is the decrease in 'importance of commercial failures, for 'ithouch one mortgage loan concern has .failed with liabilities of $5,600,000, fthe liabilities in all commercial failures jfor the first week of April were only the '.» -J 4 jMHaenno A ITUUH 1 ' WAsftttN^Sf A'pW i& attdfeH«e «£"' facets aM faced tfdd'ga'.Tere M.

I am sorry that my friend Ben Batter- Worth is not here. He has said that We are to blame for spreading this pollution through this country. If what this defendant had confessed on the stand be true, is it possible that such things are not to bo redressed? Is it possible that in the sunlight-pf our civiliza tion there,is ao r.edress? You oan not tie a millstone around his neck and sink him in the sea for tho fishes to feed upon; you can not shut him iii a -cage and double lock it to keep him from polluting the women of the country; you cannot do that, but you can secure the-redress that the laws of th« hind have provided." ; ' Mr. Butterworth had said, declared Mr. Wilson, that tho country girls of the country did not need chapurones, and he (Wilson) had expected to hear it said that gray-haired men of i7 need body-guards.

'"Mr. Wilson,held that the secretinnr- riage was no defense. Had the scone in Major Moore's office oucured in the state of New York it would luive made the plaintiff the wife of the defendant. The relations of Madeline Pollard and llhodes were discussed and Mr. Wilson emphasized the fact that there was no testimony but that of the defendant to the ell'cct that the dead man, who could not speak for himself, had sustained improper relations with the plaintiff, Rhodes, however, wns a man who, unlike the defendant, kept his letters. Those letters hod been raked up and throughout them was no sentence to hint of improper relations between the parties to the correspond ence. The defense, however, accused the dead man of even greater perfidy than was charged against the defendant, Mr, Wilson went on to speak of the testimony of liankin Rosell, which he characterized as "bluck; a damnable lie; u, lie nailed to the counter, to be written up in letters on deepest black against the defense." Then Mi*. Wilsoii proceeded to attack the credibility of the defendant fiercely, saying: "He has been equally guilty with my client; even inore so, for he had taken a solemn vow to high heaven and she had not- He had broken that Mr. Field was a liberal patron of Williams college and a strong advocate of free trade, being at one time president of the'Free Trade league of New York.

Haughoy with "making 1 and causing to be made" false reports to the Controller concerning the condition of the bank. The claim was that there is no lesal penalty for "causing to be made" false reports, and that the count is therefore indefensible. Judge linker took the matter under advisement, and much interest is taken in what may be his decision. The point is of great importance to the Collins, who are charged with aiding and abetting Haughey, and if the count against Haughey should fall through the same would hold against the Coffins. vow' by his Q svif cbiifessibu ' befdi ; o" he ever met Madeline Pollard.
