In ordinary speculative views allow
ance Is not usually made for a rise like
that which haj taken place In Steel com
mon and the rest of the list In the last
two months. It Is not th" extent of the
advance In so short a time, although that
too is noteworthy, but It Is the manner
In whlchr-lt has occurred which Is re
garded as absolutely Irregular. The rlc
has been almost perpendicular. This
has Ih'Cii paiticularly so in the case of
Steel common, about which all specula
tive thought now revolves. A stock of
winch there I something like t.'.OO.OOn,
nnn outstanding has rl-en nearly 10
point., ami then have been no reactions
worth speaking of and Indeed few period'
when the advance has even halted The
aliMMiec of nntmnl reactions Is what dis
turbs tin- artistic sensibilities of the trail
ing element. This feature has also
tempted them hovond human endurance
to go short. They can hardly look at
the market without wishing to sell It

Wire manufacturers ' were anxiously
seeking copper metal yesterday, as some
of them at least had not been filling re
quirements as rapidly as the brass mak
ers. " Sales continued at 15i cents for
both electrolytic and casting brands.
Smnll sales of lake were made on the
basis of 16 cents thirty days, the equiva
lent of the Calumet nnd Ilecln price.
Sixteen cents will probably be named
to-day for electrolytic.
Further cv uence came 10 ugni lenu-
Ing to foreenst a comparatively early set
tlement of the Lake Superior strike.
Lack of funds by the unions In the dis
trict wns attributed as the chief cause of
effecting peace, should It develop soon.
Mine owners here stnted that their In
formation was that the strike had been
called without the sanction or the West
ern Federation of Miners executive com
mittee and accordingly did not have tho
financial backing of the organization.

It has been questioned whither the
reason why more people do not make
more money In speculation than they do
Is not because they are too afraid of 1
selling at the bottom and Inlying at
the top. Ill the lecellt I Ise the spec.1
