REACTION IN SPECIALTIES
IT CAUSES WEAKNESS YS THE EN
TIRE LIST OF SHARES.
Railroad Stocka Stamped In Spite of
Splendid Reports of Earnings Third
Avenne Led the Toboggan Slide.
At New York yesterday money on call
was steady, actual transactions ranging
from 2 to 2& per cent.; last loan, per
cent.; ruling rate. 2M per cent.; closing.
2Q2ft per cent.
Prime mercantile paper, 45 per cent.
Sterling exchange was weak, with actual
business in bankers bills "at J4.S6U for de
mand, and for sixty days; posted
rates, H84 and $4.87; commercial bills,
Silver certificates were 3360;c; bar
stiver. 59Tic; Mexican dollars, 47c Bar
silver at London was 27 7-lCd per ounce.
The New York stock market reflected
from -the outset yesterday the reduc
tion of the unwieldy short Interest by the
large covering which took place Wednes
day, and which caused so lively a rally
at the weak points of the market. ! Prac
tically all these stocks showed renewed
weakness. Third-avenue conspicuously so.
This stock fell in the last hour to a new
low level, a full point below Wednesday's
lowest, and rallied but feebly, closing with
a net loss of $V. Rumors were circulated
of a very heavy assessment to be levied
on the stock, to effect the reorganization.
The other local traction stocks relapsed
weakly In sympathy, declines ranging in
the group from 2c In Manhattan to 6c In
Metropolitan. The shorts in Sugar were
much less eager to cover, and that stock
also fell back, falling an extreme 4c, and
closing with a net loss of ZMc. Very
marked weakness In the metal stocks was
an added factor towards reaction, Ameri
can Hoop leading the decline with a loss
for the common stock of 4c and for the
preferred of 4 points. Colorado Fuel, the
Federal Steel stocks. Tin Plate, Steel and
Wire, National Steel and Tennessee Coal
lost from lic to 34c from the best prices,
tha last named having shown considerable
strength In the early dealings. People's
Gas reacted 2ic. Outside business was very
much hampered on account of interrupted
telegraph communication, and the buy
ing orders through corr. Jiercial houses,
which have been growing in volume for a
number of days past, fell to insignificant
proportions. There . was, however, a good
demand early In the day for railroad
stocks, based on the continued reports of
large earnings for January, in spite of the
high level of operating expenses. The greAt
Pennsylvania system showed a gain In
net earnings for January of the lines di
rectly operated, both east and west of
Pittsburg, of 73 per cent. The Chicago, Bur
lington & Qulncy, with only a small In
crease In operating expenses, showed an
Increase In net earnings of no less than 172
per cent. The C, C, C. & St. Louis system
increased Its surplus for January over ten
fold and L. & N.'s net earnings were 46
per cent, greater than last year. Such no
table growth in earning power naturally
led to buying of railroad stocks, many of
the less prominent stocks Joining In the
movement, but the whole list succumbed
to the influence of the weakness In the
specialties. St. Paul's statement for Janu
ary also had a discouraging effect, as It
showed the gross increase nearly all
eaten up by additional operating expenses.
The decision of railroad presidents to give
official sanction to the notorious cutting
of grain rates from Chicago had some In
fluence on the railroad list. London was a
liberal buyer of stocks during the day, on
the strength of the relief of Ladysmith.
and took fully S0.00O shares. Sterling ex
change rate yielded on this account, and
on continued export demand for cotton
The subtreasury absorption of cash since
Friday reached nearly $7,000,000 yesterday.
In spite of the March disbursements, both
for corporation and government account,
it is realized that this must have a marked
effect on the showing of the banks in the
coming weekly statement. No effect was
manifest, however, in the day's money
The bond market was active and prices
were well maintained. Total sales at par
Taiue were X2.545.000. United States fives,
registered, advanced 4c in the bid price.

. LOCAL GRAIN AND PRODUCE.
Trade Qnlet Under Unfavorable
Weather Conditions Prices Steady.
Seldom is there a week In which the elements
combined to such an extent to put a quetus on
business. Two rainy days, followed by one on
which the highways were almost impassable on
account of Ice, quite effectually checked trade
for the time being, and seldom Is as little busi
ness done the first day of a month as that of
yesterday. Still, there Is plenty of trade in
sight as soon as weather conditions are favora
ble to getting about. Steady prices continue a
feature. Higher prices are indicated In the Iron
and steel markets, but in most lc?3 Prices
carry , a steady, firm tone. In no line "of trade
docs there seem to be an unusually large stock
carried. In the line of fruits and vegetables
this Is most noticeable, and predictions of higher
prices for the past winter, which were made in
the? fall, failed to materialize. Yesterday there
were no changes in values of Importance.

HEAVY EXPORT BUSINESS
IT ADDS MATERIALLY TO THE
STRENGTH OF WHEAT PRICES.
Corn Closed nn Eighth Down on Gen
eral Apathy Oats Up a Shade and ,
Provisions Unchanged to Higher.
CHICAGO, March 1. The steadiness of
Liverpool and a New York report of lib
eral exports were a support to the market
to-day. May closing firm c over yesterday
at G5c. May corn closed He lower
and May oats a shade up. At the close
provisions were steady, unchanged to 5c
A splurge of activity, due to the report
from New York that 46 boatloads of wheat
had been taken for export, was the only
incident to break the monotony of trading
in the wheat pit to-day. It was a day, gen
erally speaking, of covering shorts, with
the undertone steady because of the steadi
ness of Liverpool in the face of the slump
here yesterday. The abrupt curtailment of
the Liverpool session was something of a
damper on the activity in the local pit.
The fight was waged around C5c for May.
This option opened a shade over yester
day at c, touched 65c and then sold
off to 64c. At 65c some wheat came out
on stop loss orders. On covering by shorts
the market steadied and fluctuated nar
rowly till near the end. The report that
46 loads had been taken for export ad
vanced May to 65Vic before further reports,
less bullish, covering the foreign sales, ar
rived. The market-then reacted to 65U.
and shortly afterwards closed firm. May
He over yesterday at 6&v;Cit4c. Atlantic
port clearances, in wheat and flour, were
equal to 472,000 bu. Primary receipts were
562,000 bushels, compared with 540,000 last
year. Minneapolis and Duluth reported
530 cars, against 4W a year ago. Local re
ceipts were 30 cars, none of contract grade.
In the corn market the selling pressure
and the demand were arrayed against each
other apparently to see which could be the
more lnuitferent. The result was a slow
and heavy market. Country offerings were
small, but so was the export demand. The
open reduction in Eastern freight
rates was taken inditferently. Re
ceipts here were 451 cars, 76 over the esti
mate. May ranged from 35c at the open
ing to 34ftc, and closed He down at 344
The oats market was firm, helped by
the reduction In freight rates, as much of
the oats business is for interior points.
Trade was quiet. Local receipts were 160
cars, 35 cars over the estimate. May
ranged from 23Ucto 23Hc, and closed a
shade improved from yesterday at 23
Provisions opened steady because hog
receipts were under the estimate, but
turned weak on commission house liquida
tion. Later in the day the general demand
improved, packers buying, and the market
rallied sharply. On the bulge there was
the usual prolit-taklng, which took off the
edge of the advance, but the close was
steady. May Dork ranged irom w.v to
$10.60, and ciosed unchanged at $10.55; May
lard from $5.77Vs to $5.tÄa5.87H. closing 2Vi
G5c up at $5.85, and May ribs from $5.72H
to 13.&2H. with the close 5c improved at

N1VUat Tillman Said.
To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal:
Here are words of Senator Tillman, .ut
tered in the United States Senate a few
"Finally, after the bayonet had come to
us again in 1876, we rose in righteousness
and right. We took the government. We
stuffed ballot-boxes, we bulldozed the
niggers and we shot 'em. And we are not
ashamed of it.
These words are in some respectsboth
remarkable and awful, not that he who
spoke Is of any consequence, except while
holding a high position he was Ditched
into by a political nightmare. Such words
from a loafer of the slums might be ex
pected in a State where the murder of
"niggers" la considered amusement for
pastime, and in no way wrong. But these
words, coming as they do from a United
States senator, bear an import that
passes beyond the worth and weight of the
man. When a senator defiantly and proud
ly asserts that the people whom he repre
sents cheats other people out of their
votes, and, when that fails, murders them
for trying to vote, he makes an exhibition
of moral and political depravity that would
be a disgrace to China and Turkey. When
a United States senator can proudly boast
of murder, and a man, with the blood of
his fellowman on his hands, can be elected
Governor of a great State like Illinois,
wnat shall be expected of the unfortunate
class of young men who have had no
opportunity for either ethical culture or
religious training? Shall we believe the
moral standing of the people of the State
referred to are represented by such men?
If so. we should appeal to civilized nations
for moral aid. J. A. IIOUSER.

sale yesterday, which is a fair improve
ment over a week ago. Nearly all kinds
were represented in the arrivals, and the
quality generally was as good as the aver
age heretofore this week, and for the most
part satisfactory to buyers. Possibly to
fill out shipments there was a little more
animation in the bidding at the opening,
and early transactions were considered
strong compared with recent quotatipns,

to a normal condition and a good clearance
was made at no quotable advance in prices.
