Dublin Courier-Dispatch: A few days
ego Mr. J. T. Puller, of Brew ton brought
-to this office a lot of corn that was burn
ed in 1854. The corn was recently plowed
up by Mr. Gus Johmon on hi place on
the east side of tne river. In 18.>4 on
this place a barn filled with corn w t
destroyed. Mr. James A. Johnson w it
nessed the burnnig and verifies the state
ment. The burnefl barn and content>
made a mound which was urpil recently

Johnson found a lot of the burned corn.
It seems remarkable that any trace of
the corn could be found after the lapse

Fatalities of lioer War Compared
With Other War*.
From the N*w York Journal.
London. June s.—ln discussing the losses
in the Boer war the Pall Mall Gazette
ift*r comparing the record of American
bat ties, in some of which the losses were
as high as 80 per cent., says:
“The present war shows nothing even
.‘mproracb.tr ? the butchery in former daya
in spite of the Mauser rifles and the su
perior (?) Boer artillery. Mr. Winston
Churchill give? the actual loss of the
Ladysmith relief column for the last four
teen days’ fighting at 10 per cent, cf the
total strength engaged, and this Is about
the figure for Colenso and the Modder.
“At Magersfonteln the lo?s of the High
land Brigade was not less than 35 and
r.ot more than 20 per cent. And even the
Dublin Fusiliers do not appear to have
suffered 30 p*r cent, of punishment in any
one action, but the returns are too incom
plete to make definite statements. It is
worth while, however, to call attention to
the fact that the proportion of killed to
wounded now seems to be 1 to 6. and in
some cases 1 to 10, and instead of half
the wounded dying fully 90 per cent, are
alleged to have recovered.
“It may be, indeed It is very probable,
that we shall have many instances of far
severer loss to chronicle before we occupy
Pretoria, but. since the armament i.ow
must remain the same, it i3 evident that
: these, if they occur, will be due to some
i other cause, and not the Mauser. The
I real truth of the matter is that, of all the
many conditions that affect the question
j of losses in battle, armament 1? the least
to be taken in account, but the. relative
qua lit 3' of the men opposing one another
I is rh* most important.
“Tactical formations only influence the
result in proportion to the i-kill of tie

the situation. If ‘time* is of no importance

HEAVY BETTING ON THE RACES.
Touts on the Track Arc Offering the
t sual Number of Good Tilings.
From the New Y’ork Sun.
The seoson for "good things" among
the regular followers of the race tracks, as
well as those who only dabble in dollar
bets In the poolrooms. Is at hand, and
from now until the snow files the "good
tiling" players will be kept busy playing
alleged owners' tips, trainers’ tips, fake
telegrams, private information and ndvlce
from the man who watches the horses
gallop every morning and holds a clock
on their speed. This same thing happens
every spring, and. although thousands of
betters hav. lost on the same kind of a
game liefoi. there are few. If any of
them, who not willing to try It again.
Of course. Information they get Is al
ways fi . Inside, and if the horse
should 1 -• : le first time the betters are
sure to >< unsold with the time-worn
lout's l a whenever he gives you o
"The ? a dc lost heavily, but wait until
next time; we'll get it back."
The next time arrives, and. although tin
horse doesn't look to have a chance
earth to win. the better win still remem
ber hat he was a "good thing" the la.-t
timeout and will invariably play It again
Just to get back what he lost. There are
some cases where the better has been
known to succeed In cashing in 0 "good
thing" the second time it ran, hut they
ate so few that not many persons can
rt tell ihe clrcumatances. So it happens
that the "good thing" player generally
goes through a whole season backing a
horse In the hope that he might be oble
to get back what he lost by having a bet
on when the horse is at big odds.
The crop of "good things" this spring
is us plentiful as ever, and men who have
listened to the yarns about the wonder
ful time these "good things" have made
in private, and played them accordingly,
and lost, a? usual, will doubtless keep
right on backing the horse every time it
runs, for the same old purpose of trying
to got back what they have lost. There
are very few betters who have not got
some horse down In their little book that
owes them money, and no matter how poor
a selling plater he turns out to be they
generally have a small bet on whenever
the horse is In a race. It doesn't matter
what class of horse Is running against
him, the better thinks that he might win
some day, and he wants to cash hie bet if
that day should ever come.

THE MORNING NEWS; SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1900.
REVIEW OF THE MARKETS.
COXDITIOX OF GENERAL TRADE
DIKING PAST WEEK.
Spirits Turpentine Goes Off 14 Cents
Since Last Friday—Cotton, also.
Declines—Rosins Firm at the Ad
vance Local and Telegraphic
Morning News Office. Jure 5 —The week
brought declines in both the cotton and
naval stores markets. Cotton dropped dur
ing the early days, and spirits turpentine
went downward throughout the week,
closing to-day at a loss of l - cent 9 below
Towards the middle of the week a decid
ed weakness developed in the market for
turpentine, due in part to the free offer
ings in the face of an indifferent demand.
The result i? a drop sir.ee last Saturd .7
from 47 to 45Vfe cents. A weakness was
shown on that day, the eff-icts of w*hich
caused a decline of L cent. From then on
the market has been weak, and condition*
have been such that prices yielded despite
the efforts of factors to sustain them.
The week’s sales were about 4.00) casks
and the balance which changed hand? was
used in making deliveries.
While the trade Avas inclined to take a
better view of the situation to-day. it is
the current belief that the market has
not yet struck bottom, ar.d that next
week may witness further declines. The
part of the receipts being used in making
deliveries is not sufficient to interfere
with the demand, whichein turn is tco
light to support the market much. Th©
larger buyers are pretty well fixed with
future contra':?, which relieves them from
entering the market except for the pur
pose of supplying their Immediate needs.
Contracts for Beptember-December de
livery are being entered into by some on
the basis of 45 cents. It is currently re
ported that large offers to sp ri.s on
this basus have been turned down by fac
tors. who believe the stuff will fetch a
Nothing of interest was reported from
the naval stores belt during the week,
furfher than that the weather had been
favorable for work, and that it was being
pushed wi h all haste the present small
force of hands will allow*. In Georgia and
Florida factors say a great deal of trouble
is not had with the teibor now engaged,
most of the laborers being colored, but in
sections of Alabama, and particularly
where a w hite element has crept in, labor
organizations are beginning to make
trouble on a small scale. Nothing of a
serious nature is looked for. however.
Those complaining seek the usual redress
—fnore pay end shorter hours. Shorter
hours on turpentine farms just now is out
of the question with producers, so that
appeals to them for redress of this sort
are no; apt to meet with muon success.
The wholesale markets were steady ar.d
active, with no changes of consequence
reported. The following resume of the
different markets will show the tone and
quotations at the clo.sing to-day;
The cotton market closed nominal and
unchanged to-day. The week closes at a
decline of Lc below last Friday’s prices.
A general dullness, and lack of demand
from any source, gave the market a weak
'tone, and brought declines which may be
followed by others before, the-re Is a re
vival of business. The receipts for the
week were moderately good.

COTTON FI TIRES.
New York, Jur. - B.—Speculation In cot

from the highest to the lowest the active

points soon aft r on light covering an'd
purchases for Southern account. Senti
ment was inclined to lean toward the bull
side, as repors from Texas concerning
the crop condition were not encouraging,
while a number of sections In the central
belt also sent gloomy reports. Toward
midday rumor gained ciruclation to t.-e
effect that two prominent operators had
secured control of the long interest in
New Orleans, and were already squeezing
near month ?hor ?. though more particu

reported 4hat there wa? to be a like move

It is now time for the monsoon to break
! in India, and the question of <he relief
j to that suffering country, will be eoon
decided. A local demand from a short in
terest In July gave tone to the nearby
deliveries. After the recent sharp de
cline, the markets are expected to remain
in an uncertain condition, with many
minor fluctuations, until the main factors
of trade Bnd crop are more clearly de
fined. The local interest is no longer dis
posed to anticipate a further sharp break
unless crop reports improve throughout
the cotton belt.
New York. June S.—Murphy & Cos. say:
This market ruled firmer on shorts cov
ering and some fresh buying, influenced
| by repor's of excessive rains in Alabama
and Missisippi. Advices from the latter
1 state indicate flooding of some of the low
lands. Liverpool sold new crop deliveries
moderately. The continent bought sum
mer deliveries moderately. NVe look for
much higher prices next week.

STOCKS AND BONDS.
Balling Wheat and Bearing Stocks
Started on 'Change.
New Y’ork, June B.—The combination
bull movement in wheat and bear move
ment in stocks; which rs an annual fea
ture at some period of the growing crop,
made its appearance to-day. The wheat
market advanced in an excited way on tie
increasing volume of rumors of disaster
to spring wheat in the Northwest. Wall
street had similar advices and apparently
the conviction that serious harm has al
ready been done to the spring wheat
gained force steadily during the. day.
There is growing uneasiness as’ well
over the rate situation among railroads
west of Chicago. The fact that the late
break in the prices of Western railroad
shares was coincident with the delibera
tions of the committee appointed by the
presidents of Western railroads to con
cert a plan for division of traffic, gave
force to the supposition that the prospect
for a satisfactory settlement is not very
good. Failing such a settlement, there is
said to be a likelihood of a widespread
and costly rate war. Coming In com
bination with the bad reports from the
wheat country, this served to effectually
break the market, and pritass went to
pieces in the last half hour of the trad
ing, the weakness spreading from tne
Grangers, Pacific and Southwesterns into
the trunk lines and specialties, and em
bracing the whole list. This break came
after a day of persistent dudness and ir
regular fluctuations in prices.
The incident immediately preceding the
break was an advance of over a point in
Reading first preferred, with confident ab
sorption of very large offerings. The sec
ond preferred rose 2 per cent, in sym
pathy. The gain in the first preferred was
all wiped out in the final break.
A gain in the earnings of the
Northern Pacific of 2S per cent, for the
fourth week in May did not avail to save
that stock from the prevailing weakness
in the unfavorable crop prospects, and it
fell 2 points. . Missouri Pacific and Bal
timore and Offio showed weakness before
the general break, on fears of disappoint
ment regarding dividends.
There was a relaxation of the pressure
on foreign markets, due to apprehension
over the trouble in China, and London
bought stocks here to a moderate extent,
causing some slight gains early in th<*
The preliminary estimates of the hank
statement figure out a small loss in cash,
owing to the week's heavy absorption by
the sub-treasury, which amounted to $3,-
117,00-0, all on account of the call by the
treasury of government deposits in the
banks. The estimates of receipts from
the interior are slightly in excess of those
made last Friday, but it will be remem
bered that last Friday’s estimates fell
short by $1,500,000 of the actual receipt?,
so that a gain In cash in to-morrow’s
statement, would not be surprising. The
market closed aclive and weak at about
