The undertone of the stock market becamo
trong yesterday, and prices moved upwc.rl
pretty consistently to the close, which waj
trong. but notably dull, and with gains well
maintained. The dominant factor in the market
was the large engagement of gold for import,
I-oudon. Paris and Berlin all contributing-. th
total amounting- to J2.T00.0OO. The dealing's In
stocks were not large at any time, and the day's
operations were attributed to professional op
erators for the most part. There was a fair dis
tribution of the. strength, but the effective deal
ings during- the day were concentrated In a few
tocks. and thoaa distinguished for the recent
large short eelllnx, from which they have suf
fered. People's gas was the notable example In
th Industrial Hat. The stock sold off after the
openlrj on the presumption that Thursday's
buying had satisfied the demand from the short.-.
but the large covering at the decline caused a
renewed advance, and It was lifted at one time
an extreme 5'i. closing with a net gain of
JH per cent. In the railroad list Northern Pa
cific was In largest demand on buying supposed
to be for insMa Interests. But here also the
tr.ort interest played an Important part In the
day's advance, which reached 24, with the nt
gain 2. But while the- strength of these two
Stocks was pre-eminent, a list of those which
rose from 1 to 2 points waa a long one. Not
withstanding the notable dullness at the last.
the closing was strong and rains nere w. II
maintained. The failure of the. money rate to
respond to the operations in the stork market
gave color to the supposition that thy were
conauctea cy professional operators, who had
Supplied themselves with time loans with a view
to such a contingency an the nrcs.nt Th. ..nil
loan rate, in fact, was Inclined to sag, the rullnj
rat declining to 3 per cent, notwithstanding
that loans made yeaterday rry over until Moo
Cay. There waa some relaxation In the Interior
cemar.d for currency. New York exchange at
transfer to the New York money market, and
mi rnn-u oemana on ine market by the nu1)
treasury by reason of the larir mid
lension payments, were alao accepted as promise

Another Good Day of Trade on AVhole
nle Street Prices) Steady.
Like the preceding days of this wcfk. trade
with the houses on the wholale streets yester
day was active. Keldcm has there been a wek
In which as many goods were sU as In the one
closing to-day. The dry-poods house, boot and
shoe merchant, confectioner?, hat and cap deal
ers und milliners seemingly are the most bene
fited, but in other lines a good trade wan en
Joyed. On Commission row a good business was
transacted. Receipts of fruits and vegetables
are not as large as ten days ago, and better
Trices are being realized. The poultry,' egg and
butter markets art- all active, and on choicn
stock prices quoted, are readily obtained. In nil
lines cf business a. good feeling Is noticeable, as
both wholesale and retail merchants are becom-It'-5
confident that there Is to be no changft in
the present administration of the affairs of this
government, financially or otherwise.
Th local train market presents no new fea
tures. Receipts are not large, being in-uftlclent
to meet local demand. Track bids jebterday. us

LRAL TRADE SITUATION.

Hoot and Shoe Shipments The
Iron nnd Steel Prospects.
NEW YORK, Oct. 12. R. G. Dun & Cos
weekly Review of Trade, to-morrow, will
say: More seasonable weather had im
portant Influence throughout the country,
but the coal strike continued as the re
straining factor In business. " As specula
tion everywhere Is on a small scale, the
effect is minimized. Eower prices recently,
for some iron product?, have been without
disturbing force, and the firmer market
for print cloths, and strong quotations for
lumber, show that In some directions In,
the great industries a small Increase in
demand is capable of raising prices. The
situation still promises a recovery when
politics and the strike arc settled. Distri
bution of merchandise at the "West Is still
very active. The working force is Increas
ing steadily, and in railroad and manufac
turing circles in the middle West scarcity
of laLor Is causing nneaslnes?. Fear of
tight money has made some men hesitate,
but higher rates result from the activity
of the movement of cotton, at high prices,
in the South. At the moment the move
ment of gold from Euroie has tended to
relievo the tension In New York, and gold
is still coming from Australia.
Pig-Iron production has been further re
duced, according to tho Iron Age. On Oct.
1. the weekly capacity of furnaces in blast
was 223.1C9 tons, against 231.778 Sept. 1, and
2?ti,376 June 1. Stocks at furnaces continue
to accumulate, gaining S'?,S41 tons in Sep
tember. A gratifying feature is the evi
dence that supplies In consumers' hands
are low. Quotations of Iron products are
steady, and foreign buying continues, two
contracts of importance being placed. Pipe
makers are buying quantities of pig, while
car and fhip builders are also urgent bid
ders for material.
Much disappointment was apparent
among cotton traders when the official
crop report appeared." for the anticipation
of a gloomy report had put the price uj
to 11 cents. When the statement indicated
a pointed improvement in Texas in Septem
ber, prices dropped sharply. Wheat also
declined without the aid of a government
report. C"rn remains steady in the face
ot the decline in condition. Foreign buv
ing is small. Atlantic exports In two week
amounting to 4,851, 878. bu, against 6,177,148 bu
Shipments of boots and shoes from Bos
ton at the rate of S3, 4 15 cases weekly mean
the most active business since April, and
exceed the heavy forwardlngä of last year.
Improvement Is general, with orders from
all parts of the country and frequent re
quests for shipment. The signs that ex
cessive accumulations have become dis
tributed are encouraging. Leather is shar?
ing the increased activity at the shops,
and the average price of hides at Chicago

IRON AXD STEEL PROSPECTS.
lleary Orders for Ralls and Rridse
Slaterlala The Cereal 'Trade.
NEW YORK, Oct. 12. Brad street to
morrow will say: Though some measures
of business volume and value make un
favorable comparison with a year ago, and
speculation is certainly on a reduced scale
in nearly all lines, other registers of trade
activity are still very favorable, and it is
hard to resist the conclusion that, with few
notable exceptions, the actual business of
the country Is, as a rule, equal to if not
slightly In excess of the corresponding po-
rlod of 1809. This, .too, is the case in spite
of the distinctly repressive tendency exer
cised by the present presidential campaign.
Trices of staples, as a whole, are firm, after
a sustained advance for a month past, suc
ceeding a summer of quiet steadiness, and
the unhealthiness of the short side in spec
ulation has been brought forcibly to the at
tention of dealers in a number of staples,
notablj' hog products and flaxseed.
The event of the week in the Iron and
steel trade has been the taking of 150,000
tons of rails by the Pennsylvania at $26 a
ton, announced on Friday. This action,
which probably will be followed by other
companies, disposes of the steel rail puzzle
satisfactorily to the rail makers and consti
tutes another element of strength to the
Industry generally. Despite a decrease of
over 20 per cent, in current pig Iron pro
duction from four months ago, furnace
stocks are reported increasing and prices
rather weak. The considerable volume of
hand-to-mouth buying, however, presup
poses that consumers stocks are well
down. In structural and bridge material
the feature is the placing of the contract
for the new East river bridge, which calls
for nearly 70.000 tons.
Wheat, including flour, shipments for the

tive, "Weak and Lower.
CHICAGO. Oct. II. Wheat was strong on the
export business. December closing s'd"4C over
yesterday. Corn closed V'?Tc and oats U'iiUc
higher. Provisions closed S'iQTVic lower.
Wheat opened with fales of December at 75c
to 75!c, and under the Influence ot bearish
news eased to 7Sö757ic. Liverpool showed a
oecllne. Argentine shipments were larger and
the weather favorable. Export business, how
ever, was suspected of belmr In hiding on the
floor, and after the initial decline prices were
firm In tendency. Later, when It was reportsd
that 41,000 bushels had bei sold here to the
other side, a sharp rally followed, and the end
of the session found the market at Its best. De
cember sold up to 76?ic, closlns at that figure.
NtTc over yesterday. Trade during the fore
noon was quiet and local, but later business was
more active and wider in character. Shorts
covered freely on the upturn. Liverpool ckwel
V8d lower. Argentine shipments were 44.000
bushele, compared with 684,0O last week and
1.176.00) last year. New York reported nineteen
loads taken for export. Seaboard clearances in
wheat and fk-wer were equal to 225,000 bushels.
Primary receipts were ü.14,000 bushels, compare!
with 1,139,000 a year aso. Minneapolis and Du
luth reported 504 cars, against 294 last week and
1.164 the corresponding day last year. Local re
ceipts wero 200 cars, nine of contract grade.
Corn was firm In sympathy with wheat. Dur
ing the first hour commission house buying was
nctlve, but business became quieter later for a
time. Towards the end the wheat strength
provoked covering by shorts and the market ad
vanced rapidly. Thers was also good buying by
bulls throughout, presumably with the idea of
forcing weak shorts to the front. New York re
ported ninety-five loads taken for export, but no
sales for shipment were reported here. Decem
ter sold between 34ic and S5Tc, closing 4072
Hgher at 35?ic Receipts here were 641 cars.
Western offerings wer small.
Oats were dull and fluctuations narrow.
Traders eMil felt scarlsh over the government
report, but the strength of other grains had a
fteadying effect. December sold between 22c an!
2S22"ic. closing ttft'ic, higher at tl,C Ilecelpts
were 25W cars.
Provisions were weak most of the session,
there being a fair amount of liquidation by
longs under way. Towards the end they grain
strength was felt In the hog pit, and a recovery
took place, the close being steady. January
pork sold between fll.STH and $11. 50, and closed
Ho lower at IU.57H; January lard between

A SOLDIER'S TESTIMONY.
Writes) from the Philippines to Pro
test Affninst Ilryauisni.
Correspondence of the Indianapolis Journal.
DIEGO, Luzon, P. I., Aug. 10. Of late
I have been reading a great many speeches
and opinions and letters of anti-expansionists,
and I can't conceive why it is that
men of so much brains as Bryan, Lentz,
Bacon and others can get up before the
people and expose their Ignorance as they
do. Why, it doesn't take people of more
than average common sense to see whero
th Philippines are going to be of unlimited
benefit and value to the United States and
the people at large. Copies of clippings of
speeches of American anti-expansionists
printed in Tagalo, Bical and Spanish are
found quite often In the lnsurrecto lines,
and as long as this continues the American
soldiers will have to be kept here in force.
Why? Because these islands belong to
Uncle Sam and are paid for, not only In
cash, but by the lives of the American sol
diers, and we are not a nation known as
giving up what rightfully belongs to us.
The resources of the Philippines, although
undeveloped, afford vast opportunities for
American capital to develop them and start
their future. It is sure to be a paradise
after a few years of American training
and business energy. American cotton and
wool can find a market in the Philippines;
also farming implements of all kinds.
Railroads and means of transportation are
badly needed; also steel and iron bridges
and bridge iron have an unlimited market
for the next twenty-live years to come.
Capital Invested hero now, If properly
looked after, will treble in five years, and
there are endless opportunities for invest
ments. Hard woods are to be found along
the mountain slopes and the hills, which,
if proper machinery and transportation
were available, would be one of the best
paying investments in this Island. There
is said to be gold in the mountains which
could bo mined at a very handsome profit.
It is well adapted to cattle raising in the
foothills, and some good stock is . to be
seen occasionally which is owned by a few
natives. There is a German here who has
a large cattle ranch a few miles from this
place, who verities my statement along
that line. There Is vast opportunity for
professional men to locate here, such as
doctors, dentists, lawj'ers, civil engineers,
school teachers, etc. The opportunities
here, if developed along the many business
lines offered and after a few years of Amer
ican training, will make it a perfect para
dise for the people who locate here. The
people, or natives, are now adopting the
American ways and dress, and it will be
only a matter of a few years when these
people will bo able to govern and take
charge of the minor details of self-government,
but to remove troops from here at
this time would mean almost the destruc
tion of people in general.
I might go Into some of the smaller de
tails about the many chances of fortune
which our possessions In the far Rast pre
sent, but this I do not deem necessary.
I should like very much to be at home to
cast my vote for my old regimental com
mander. Colonel Durbln, but as it is going
to be impossible I wish the Republican
ticket success at home, and also the whole
ticket, from McKinley to the end.
