IN LARGE BLOCKS
Stock Is Thrown on the Market a
the Opening To-day.
LONDON DEPRESSION REFLECTED
Some \otuble Declines—A Rally In
Some of the Stool; ■—Bond*
Are Iliisler.
New York, Jan. 21.—Trading opened with
large blocks of Block thrown on the market
to liquidate speculative profits or to save
losses. The only stock that was notably
supported was Missouri Pacific, which opened
off & and was immediately bid up lai to 87.
The depressed condition of the London mar
ket was reflected in the weakness of inter
national stocks, many of which opened at
declines of between 1 and 'I points, with
evidences of an effort to support prices here
and there. There were wide openings in
Erie, Atchinsou and Rock Island on sales
of from 3,000 to 4,600 shares. Amalgamated
Copper was acutely depressed at an ex
treme loss of 3>/i and the" sterel stocks were
all weak at declines of 1 to 2 points. Fed
eral Steel and Tin Plate were most affected.
The opening quotations in Rock Island varied
IV4 from 119 to 117 I,* compared -with 119% on
Saturday and the other grangers were de
pressed over a point. Sugar, People's Gas
and the local tractions lost over a point,
Pennsylvania showed especial weakness at
a loss of 'i\. Trading was active and large
blocks tame out at the decline.
A rapid decline in special stocks had a
demoralizing effect on the market, and
prices melted away rapidly. St. Paul lost
3% In all, Pennsylvania 3%, Republic Steel
preferred 4 and Xorthern Pacific 3 points.
Elsewhere losses were from 1% to 3 points.
Support to Missouri Pacific carried it 3 above
the opening price to 88*4. Many other stocks
made quick rallies of a point or so, but be
came very feverish on the rise. Amalga
mated Copper recovered 314 and then fell
below 86 again.
Business decreased considerably, but the
rally continued to gain force and reacted 2
points or more in the stocks which had suf
fered most acutely. Special strength devel
oped in a few stocks, which rose above Sat
urday's closing. American Tobacco, Sugar,
People's Gas, the Southwesterns, the local
tractions and the coalers were notably firm.
Bonds were easier in tone.
After midday the Wabash securities be
came buoyant, the common rising 2!4, the
preferred 3 and the debenture bonds 4 points.
The Southwesterns were firm in sympathy
and Western Union rose 1% over Saturday.
United States Express dropped Vh and Steel
and Wire preferred 2%. The market gen
erally was firm but quiet.
When, later, the speculative demand for
the Wabash issues abated, sharp losses fol
lowed which affected the general market. St.
Paul, Baltimore & Ohio, Xorthern Pacific,
Brooklyn Transit, Manhattan, Metropolitan
and Erie first preferred were offered freely
and lost over a poitjt. The steel stocks were
inclined to yield. 'The whole market was
unsteady, but continued dull.
There, was another rally in active trading
in the final hour, which carried many stocks
to the highest of the day and left very few
traces of the early declines. Missouri Pacific
rose to 90% and Brooklyn Transit was con
spicuous for strength. Flint & Pere Mar
quette rose 3. Pressed Steel Car was prac
tically the onb' exception to the market's
strength and extended its loss to 5%. Amal
gamated Copper and St. Paul rose above Sat
urday's level, the former more than a point.
There were enormous dealings in Missouri
Pacific and its reaction of a point checked
the buying elsewhere. The closing was active
and firm at very near the top prices.

Xew York Cotton.
New York. Jan. 21.—Cotton opened steady,
1 point higher to 3 points lower. Speculation
was deplorably slow during the rest of the
morning and fluctuations were tardy and nar
row. The crowd was all at sea as to the exact
effect the death of England's ruler would
have upon the Liverpool market, and, in
turn, as to just how far our market would
respond to the iatter's weakness. The initial
sales from Liverpool were about in line with
our closing of Saturday.

SPECULATIVE GOSSIP
Chicago to Stevens: "The undertone of the
wheat market last week was heavy. Local
bears have sold aggressively on all hard spots
and have evidently been 'gunning' for the
much-tslked-of Wall street line of wheat.
They were apparently successful on Friday,
as the New York commission houses who have
been supposed to hold this line liquidated
very freely, resulting in a demoralized mar
ket for a few moments. If this line has
been disposed of the market should be in a
much healthier shape, as we are now on an
export basis, and liberal sales have been
reported at this decline. Corn has been
independently strong. The principal feature
has been the continued light offerings from
the country and a consequent falling off of
receipts at primary markets. The high price
of hogs makes feeding under present condi
tions look extremely attractive. The leading
local bulls have been good buyers, particu
larly on weak spots. Oats have been very
strong, with excellent outside buying. The
leading local bulls have apparently sot
changed their position."
World's Shipments—Wheat this week,
5.328,000 bu: last week, 8,369,000; last year,
4,720,0<h); corn this week, 5,739,000; last week,
:»,745.(Mjt); last yew. 4,063,000.
Chicago, to Watson: ""Cash sales reported
to-day are: Chicago. 250.000 bu; Kansas City,
St. Louis and Duluth, 200,000 bu each, all for
export."
English visible wheat decreased 282,000 bu;
last year, decreased, 64?,tM bu.
Board's figures, on passage wheat, increase,
416,000 bu. Corn, decrease, 248.000 bu.
Chicago, to C. E. Lewis: "The wheat sold
for export to-day is for shipment from Chi
cago direct to Liverpool."
Shicago local stocks: Wheat, 11.698,000 bu;
r-orn, 3,336,000 bu; oats, 3,477,000 bu; rye,
627,000 bu; barley, 259,000 bu.
Exports at New York, forty-four loads
wheat; no corn.
Liverpool stocks: Wheat, G,928,00t> bu; de
crease for the week. 224.000 bu. Corn, M*,OW
bu; increase, P. 2,000 bu.
Verhoeff. from Milmine: Foreign news is
quite bullish; they hfcve bought wheat freely
in New York market this mcrning and con
siderable acceptances.
Logan to Jolley: St. Louis wires "The
United Elevator company just sold 125,000 bu
No. 1 hard wheat to the continent. Cash
wheat very strong here. Outside millers tak
ing it."

INVESTMENT GOSSIP
New York to Edwards, Wood & Co.: "The
stock market Is acting very well in the face
of selling from Europe early and some local
pressure. The support by bull interests is not
aggressive, except in Missouri Pacific. The
1 advance in this stock and the other Gould
properties, like Wabash and Texas Pacific,
foreshadows a Southwestern combination
sooner or later. There has been some scale
buying' of stocks by good people and the
large short interest is constantly seeking to
secure profits. The market is steady with
no special pressure of liquidation and should
rally further."
New York to I. Q. Andrews & Co.: "There
is a general rally in the stock markets. The
early selling rush is all over, offerings were
well taken and shorts are now looking at each
other wondering what next. The buying of
Rock Island and St. Paul was of the very
best, and same could be said of a number
of other properties. Shorts are probably not
in as yet for the easy time they counted
on at the start."
Verhoeff, from Mihnine: New York aays ad
vises buying stocks on all declii.es; says two
or three deals are still unannounced; thinks
Wabash securities are a purchase.

MAYVILLE NORMAL SCHOOL
Increase in Attendance of 47 Per
■-" Cent In Three Years.
Special .to The Journal.
Mayville, N. D., Jan. 21.—The biennial
report of the board of management ;of the
state - normal school: in this city contains
some interesting reading. During the pe
riod covered by the report £ 365 different
students received instruction. These came
from twenty H counties within ■ the state,
from five other states and from Canada.
The fact that of this, number about 260
are now teaching in .the common schools
of the. state shows that the: school is do
ing, just what it" was established to do.
At present the demand ■ for,' teachers: is
greater than the school can supply. This is
on account of the phenomenal growth of
the population ■ and the consequent in
crease in the. number of schools, and the
growing conviction that the children are
entitled to ~ the . services'. of teachers who
have , made a scientific study of . the art
of teaching.
. The need of completing the building is
imperative. In the estimation of the board
an appropriation of ',, $28,250 above what is
required for : running > expenses lis needed
to enable the : school to respond I adequate
ly to the demand that is made upon it. "Of
this : amount : the greater part is necessary
for the completion of the building, the ]
rest for plumbing, fire protection, electric
lighting and additions to the library. •
• The board takes the high ground that in
expending money, in this way the state is
