The stock market to-day was active, and
while strong at first yielded at the close to the
pressure hr e. <ht to bear by the bears. There
was good buying by commission houses and for
eigners, which was specially noticeable in Van
derbilts. Canada Southern and Michigan Cen
tral easily leading the advance Chattanooga
also showed marked strength and held its gain
till the close. The high figure after the steady
advance of the week induced considerable
realization by short-waisted bulls, and hears be
came encouraged to make a demonstration
against the list. It made but little progress,
however, until the issue of the bank statement,
with its loss of $2,000,000 in the surplus reserve,
when the selling became more marked and the
list yielded rapidly. Northern Pacific preferred
was most prominent in the decline, though the
business done in the stock was small, and it is
alone in showing a mate ial loss this evening.
The opening was firm at advances of small
fractions. Further fractional advances were
made in the first hour, with Vanderbilts very
prominent. The market became more quiet to
ward noon, aud prices began to recede. Little
progress was made, however, until the issue of
the bank statement, which accelerated the de
cline, and the close was active aud weak at the
lowest prices reached. The net result of the
day's trading is that most stocks are lower,
though declines are e mflned generally to frac
tional amountfkonly, the only important change
being a loss of 1% P*' r cent, in Northern Pacific
preferred. Sales aggregated 107,000 shares.

Green * Co.'s report on cotton futures says:
“The cotton contract market was excited and
buoyant, with heavy business and a sharp ad
vance o’ 1 values. The main aud only stimulus
for ti e day was to be found in the estimate of
the crop put forth by the Cotton World, show
ing 6,225.009 biles, which is so much below ex
pectation of even some of the most pronounced
‘bulls' as to create a very feverish feeling and
decided alarm among snorts. Covering in con
sequence proved rapid and liberal, causing an
advance of 22(221 points, closing strong at the
highest figures of the day. the 'short.' session
apparently not affording sufficient lime for all
hands to protect their engagements.”

ILLUMINATED FO.i TEN YEARS.
The Archbishop) Breaks the Record on
Gas B Ils— Paying |7BO.
f'rom the Missouri Republican.
“The heaviest gas bill ever paid by one
private consumer—for gas furnished to his
residence, that is,” remarktd a gas man,
“was one paid a short time ago by Arch
bishop Keurick. How big do you suppose
“I couldn’t imagine.”
“Something over $780.”
“For gas used at his home!”
“How did it happen! Was he illuminat
ing for the President aud Mrs. Cleveland T'
“No, it was a case of lost meter. You
see each year the records are gone over and
brought into anew book, and it sometimes
hap]jens, through the carelessness of a clerk
or for some other reason, that the transfer
to the new book is not properly made. The
list of meters in each district is made up and
given to the inspectors, and, of course, if a
house number does not appear in the mspec
tor’s book he does not go into the house to
investigate. Tho only thing that there is to
go on is the list. He can’t go behind the re
turns. Well as lam telling you, the meter
in tho Archbishop’s house wag not pro, erly
entered, and we knew nothing at all about
it until one day one of the members of
his family came down a.nl lodged a com
plaint about the working of the gas in the
house. We looked the matter up.
and it did not appear that his grace had
any ga< or was using any meter. Thore
was nothing on the boons to show it. We
turned back to lost year and there was
nothing there, to the year before and there
was nothiug there, and so the chase was
kept up all the way back to 1870, when it
was evident what sort of a mistake had
been made. Gas had been burning for ten
years in the house, and we had known noth
ing about it. The meter had ground itself
complete y out so that it could give ns no
consolation whatever. The matter was
brought to the archbishop’s attention, and
he at once wrote to the office and told us to
make out a hill for whatever might be the
oroper amount. It was rather a dilicult
bill to make out, and the only way we
could get at it wa. to take the average of
tl. • monthly bills rendered at tin house for
the last two years of which we lut 1 record,
and compute the account due m that way.
It amounted, as I said, to something over
$7BO. His grace sent in a Check the next
day, thus having the honor and pleasure of
pu'ving the largest individual gas bill ou re
