?2 NEW WRK "STOCK MARKET. NEW YORK. July 20.?There was not | much change in the character of the Trading in securities today. There was a period when the market made some Show of strength in sympathy with an upward move in n group ot individual stocks, but a violent slump of Ameri? can Malting was sufficient to put an end to the rise and wipe out pretty much all of .the previous gain. General Electric rose 1% on the opening quota? tion. Pennsylvania showed signs of strength early and there was a conspic? uous absorption of Kock Island which was attributed to the operation of a pool. Buying from the same source was supposed to account for the ad? vance of !a, in People's Gas and for the vigorous upward movement in the Gould southwestern sleeks.

The country attempted to put a bonus upon sailing vessels in distinc? tion from sleani vessels, paying about one-third more of subsidy on the for reor. The theory evidently was that .-?ailing vessels were falling behind hi the.race, and so needed more holstering up by law than the steam vessels.

The Awful Judgement of Law Passed on Richard Williams. DRAMATIC HALF - MINUTE Like One Dazed the Condemned Man Faced His Fate Without a Shade of Emotion on His Face or the Relaxation of a Muscle. Richard Williams, murderer of James Ezekial Newman, stands in the shadow of the gallows. Unless 'some unexpected action is taken in his behalf, unless there is some unanticipated dispensation in his favor, by 4 o'clock P. M. on Friday, September 29, 1899, he will be a corpse. He was sentenced at 4:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Judge T. J. Barham, of the Corporation Court, to be hanged on that date between the hours of 10 A. M. and 4 P. M. in the jail enclosure. The case of Richard Williams is a remarkable one. He has, apparently, not a friend in the world but himself, and is his own worst enemy. When he was arrested for the killing of Newman and placed in jail, he made no effort to get a lawyer to help him out ot his terrible predicament. He has a mother in Richmond, and she has never b...
