THE LOCAL STOCK MARKET.
UK TRANSACTIONS ON TUB BOA11D
Street llnllronil Stocks Depressed and
Lower-Grnphophono Stock Stronger
nnd In Good Domnnd Renewed Ac
tivity Predicted In Gns Stock.
Tho aggrcgato of transactions on tho local
stock board Inst week was but of moderate
proportions. Columbia Bank etock changed
bands to tho extent of 20 shares, 10 of which
brought 15-1 J and 10 154, with no stock offer
ing below 158, and 150 the best bid. There
are rumors of an increase in tho dividend on
this stock, but they are not sufficiently defi
nite to warrant tho assurance that tho result
will justify the anticipation. For 0 shares of
Traders' Bank Btock 116 was paid. Consider
ing tho fact that 120 has been paid in on this
security, and that the bank is well managed
and making some money and likely to do
much better in tho now location shortly to be
occupied, where tho successful banking firm
of Lewis Johnson & Co. has for so many
years done so prosperously, this must be re
garded as a very low price for the stock. At
tho close 115 was bid, and no stock offering
below 118. Tho offerings of Lincoln Bank
6tock on tho board are but Email. Tho only
sale was of 4 shares at 102, the closing bid
101, and 10 shares offering at 101g.. This
bank continues to prosper, the deposits last
week having reached $553,000, tbe highest in
Its brief but prosperow,? career,
Railroad, fitockn jp depfeseea andtoalargfi
degree neglected. Georgetown andTcnnally
town, after having a few weeks ago sold up to
68 for 10 shares7sold down to 58, closing 58
bid with .offerings at 61. For Ecklngton Rail
road 48? was paid, with 50 tho lowest offering.
The depression in Metropolitan Railroad stock
continues, without transactions. The best bid
was 105, the lowest offering 109?.
The disposition to sell insurance stocks at
their present depressed values continues. For
Riggs 8 J was paid for 200 shares: 100 People's
brought 5 5-16; 100 Lincoln, 5J; 10 National
Union, 18J, and 2D0 Commercial, 4J. All of
these investments should Bhowgood profits
when business assumes its normal activity.
The demand for Graphopbono 6tockisgood,
but transactions are still limited by the small
offerings. The sales wore 5 shares at 6J and
13 at 6. For 100 G& was bid and 100 offered
at6J. The directors of this company are ac
tively engaged In making arrangements to
put the Tjusiness into prosperous shape. Over
tures from the Edison Company have been
met In a friendly spirit and tho outcome, it is
believed, will prove of Importance to both cor
porations. Afresh movement in Washington Gas stock,
it is believed, is taking shape and better orlces
are predicted. The sales were verylebt.
For 2 shares 44 was paid; 25 brought 43.
The closing bid was 48i, with 44 the lowest
offering. The transactions in Electric light
ing stock continue small by reason of the
meager offerings. But 10 shares were sold.
It broueht 164. The closing bid was 159,
with a small offering at 165.
American Security and Trust stock con
tinues In good demand with but small offer
ings. For 20 shares 795 was realized. The
lowest offerlug on Saturday was at 81. Tho
only sale of Washington Loan and Trust
stock last week was of 10 shares at 9GJ, with
96? the lowest offering.
The demand for Gas bonds'contlnues good.
The convertible 6's broughtl34 for 900. Frac
tional rights, Interchangeable for the bonds,
sold for 135.
The local money market continues easy,
and loans on the best collaterals on good
margins In large amounts can be made at 4
and 5 per cent.
THE WALiIj STREET MARKETS.
Shipments of Gold Stopped and a Bullish
Arrangements have been made by TnE
Herald to receive through Mr. C. T.
Havenner, the well-known stock broker of
the Atlantic Building, a weekly reyiew of tho
New York stock market, which i6 compiled
by Mr. Havenner's New York correspondents.
These letters will be found careful and con
servative and they cannot fall to be of value
to the laree number of Washington people
who are interested in Wall street.
New York, May 23. London took profits
to-day. They sold about 12,000 shares of
stock.' As soon as the Europeans see a fair
profit they are anxious to take It. The news
from abroad was good. The large banking
house of Cologne, that was said to be in
trouble, has been helped out and it has been
formed Into a stock company. Thb market
hesitated under London selling, especially
after the large rise of yesterday. The main
topic in Wall street this week again was the
gold shipments. About $7,000,000 were
shipped, but according to prominent bankers
the movement is pretty well over. About
$50,000,000 in gold have been sent to Europe
since the first of the year, and Americans have
ju6t reason to feel proud about the financial
condition of their country. With all the ex
ports, call money is easy, although time
money Is difficult to obtain. All the scare
about gold going to a premium has disap
peared. The bears have worked this for all it
was worth. The Director of the Mint esti
mates the stock of gold In this country at
about $700,000,000, a quarter of which be
longs to the National Treasury and the rest to
banks and to private owners. With such a
stock to draw from there need be no fear.
The Bank of England has been paying a pre
mium of about ft per cent, so as to attract gold
to its coffers. But they reduced the rate the
latter part of this week. Tho market all
closes considerably better than la6t Saturday.
The prospects for an active summer
and higher prices were never better.
The reports from the West re
garding crops continue highly favorable.
Copious rains have given the youug wheat in
creased life. The i eports from abroad tell the
same tale of great damage to crops. The
onjythlpg to be feared is that tho Chicago
grain speculators may take advantage of the
export demand and put wheat to prices at
which other countries would supply Europe.
The decline In wheat this week has brought
large orders from Europe for August and Sep
The bank statement, showing a small In
creaso.set the market boiling and stocks close
near the highest prices. We look for a higher
market next week and think Hock Island,
Qulncy, Atchison, and St. Paul the best6tocks
to buy. This Is a bull year, and we think the
market will be bulled for all it is worth before
money has to go West to move the crops.

"Washington Elks Curry OR' Nearly
tho Honors lit Louisville.
Washington Lodge No. 15, B. F. O. E.,
started on tho 16th instant for Louisville,
Ky., with tho expectation of carrying off tho
prieo which was to be awarded to the lodge
presenting the finest appearance In tho
parade. Tho prize consisted of a beautiful
banner, properly Inscribed. Washington
Lodge not only captured the banuer, but it
captured everything eho worth capturlug.
When they reached Louisville at midnight of
tho 17th they were received by Baltimore
Lodge No. 7 and cecortcd to their hotel.
They were a rough-looking set of fellows at
that time, fatigued and worn out generally
after their lone trip, and no one who saw them
then thought that they had a chance to carry
off the prize, but when they appeared in the
Sarado they looked as if they had come out of
and-boxes, they were so neat and trim.
Everyman was uniformed alike full-dress
6Ults, bolitalre diamonds, standing collar,
and black uecktlc. It inconvenienced tho
short-necked fellows to appear thus,
but thoy were In It from start to finish.
Tho rear guard was composed of four men
whoso combined ages aggregated 250 years,
but they held out kwlth the youngest, and at
tho finish wero apparently as fresh as any,
Thoy were compelled to inarch at a quick step
for more than two hours, and not a man fell
out. Tho reputation of Washington City was
at 6tako and they sustained it admirably.
Tho result shows tnat their labors wero not
Tho exquisite miniature representation of
tho United States Capitol which was fur
nished by J. II. Small it Sons, tho Well
known florists of this city, was a conspicuous
featuro in the procession. It was a work of
art, exact in every detail, a perfect model,
which every ono recognized, and no one ap-
plnyXUd, it more than "did Governor Buckner.
This floral tribute, Which Is composed
of 120,000 immortelles, was presented
to Bro. William F. Norton, pro
prietor of the Auditorium, who proposes
to erect It near the lake, giving it a space of
forty feet square, laying out the grounds sur
rounding It as near like tho Capitol grounds
as possible covering the whole with a trans
parent house, making It one of4tho features of
tho Auditorium for all time to come.
Washington Lodge is to be congratulated on
securing so many honors. E. "B. Hay was
made chairman of the convention, chairman
of the social session, 'and elected to the highest
office In the gift of tho order, namely, Grand
Exalted Ruler. Time will show that the
Grand Lodge used good judgment all round.
The stay-at-homo Elks of Washington
showed their appreciation of tho honors con
ferred on their representatives at Louisville
by the magnificent reception accorded tho
latter on their return Friday night.
A Beautiful May Ball.
Professor Sheldon gave his forty-fourth an
nual May ball In the grand salon of the Ma
sonic Temple on Monday evening last. Tho
occasion was a most gratifying success in
every respect. As an exhibition of artistic
dancing It has certainly never been surpassed
In this city. The hall was quite crowded with
Washington's best society. Tho following
order of exercises was observed: Grand entree
and coronation of the Queen of May, Queen,
Miss Celynda, daughter of It. L. Ford, of
Massachusetts avenue; maids of honor, Misses
Elllo McLInden, Ella Luckett, Llbble Mc
Donnell, and Mollle Roberts, with Dr. C. L.
Anderson's little daughter, Edle, as crown
bearer; grand march of the royal
guard, by sixteen beautiful young misses;
a well-executed Spanish dance, by nine-year-old
Annie Evans; pas do deux,
by Professor Sheldon and Clara
Stevens; Russian dance, by Miss Lou Tret
ler; grand skirt dance, by Genie and Belle
Whltloek, Clara Stevens, and Annie Evans,
assisted by twenty members of the juvenile
class; L' Ariel, by Clara Stevens; Highland
Fling, by Anna Evans: Hungarian festival
dance, by twenty-four little boy's and girls;
pas de deux, by Professor Sheldon and Annie
Evans; Tarentella, by Katie Luckett, Inez
Fowler, Annie Evans, Clara Stevens, and
Genie and Belle Whltloek: hornpipe, bv
Professor Sheldon and four little girls; May
pole dance, by sixteen misses; Queen's set, La
Minuet and gavotte. After this the floor was
given up to general dancing until 1 o'clock.
The Value of Pure "Water.
If ono but stops to consider that tho ma
jority of all diseases are earned into the sys
tem through the medium of water the Impor
tance of having pure water cannot be over
estimated. The analysis of Takoma water
6hows It to be absolutely pure and free from
all organic matter, and as such we commend
It to the public. The testimonials that the
Takoma Park Springs Company are dally re
ceiving are a most convincing argument that
Takoma water has no equal as a remedy for
diseases of the 6tomach, kidneys, liver, and
bowels, while the rapidly Increasing demand
for it as a table water from families that have
heretofore been using other waters is a satis
factory proof that the public appreciate a pure
water. You are cordially invited to call at the
office of the company, at 620 F street north
west, to drink of tho water and to leave your
auuress, wnen a sample pacuage will be de
livered to you free of charge.
Another Trial Tor the Vesuvius.
Tho report of Commandant Rabley D.
Evans's board upon the recent trial of tho
Vesuvlus's guns near Fort Monroe, Va., has
been presented to the Secretary of the Navy.
Tho board In substance finds that the firing
mecuaniem oi mo guns is ratner cruue and
will admit of Improvement. The results of
the firing are given In tabulated form, and
the board suggests that another trial bo made
at some point where the exact places that the
projectiles strike cau be accurately deter
mined from a shore station. Under such cir
cumstances the board believes that a correct
estimate of the value of the vessel can bo
