in the future.
On the Ohesapeake Bay and Hamp?
ton Roadi; side of the ramparts every?
thing was activity and excitement
yesterday. Large forces of men were
at work digging -huge holes in the
ground where t'he old 8 and 10-inch con?
verted rifles, which were dismounted a
.-.bort time ago, used to stand. In their
place will be mounted a battery of
modern rapid fire guns, which are ex?
pected to command -Hampton Roads
and Chesapeake 'Bay and make 'it Im?
possible for a torpedo boat of the en?
emy to enter. These guns, it is
thought, will be in fighting condition
by the end of this week, or at least,
some of them will.
The work is not confined to the fort
itse'.'t by any means, for active prepar?
ations for a possible conflict are being
made at the "Pines Battery" and on the
beach of Chesapeake Bay, midway be?
tween this battery- and the fort. Here
it is that four new disappearing guru

which is intended to give the
shape to the breatsworks tbemselv
and then a breastwork of concrete will
be shaped' in the modern frame. When
this is completed sand and gravel will
be packed on top and in front of the
concrete and the whole will be sodded
over with grass. This is the most
modern of breastworks, and is con?
sidered almost impregnable to shot or
projectile. There will be two batteries
of two gurte each concealed behind
these works. "Exactly when this bat?
tery will be finished cannot ibe etated,
but it is thought that as the work is
being puste'd with great haste it
will be ready to "speak" by the middle
of the summer, if not sooner.

NEW TORK, April 23.?^Toduy the
stock -market was "discounting peace,"
in the language of brokers.. This was
done by lifting prices a notch higher.
There was reported an active demand
for securities in London, but the buy?
ing here for London account was not
large, as prices here ruled abofe Lon?
don parity. There were periods of re?
action but the publication of the bank
statement caused renewed buying ami
lifted prices to the highest. They
were shaved off by renewed apprehen?

closing being easy below the best, but
at net gains throughout reaching a
point in sonw ca.-es. The volume of
?the dealings was not large, the indus?
trial specialties were favorites in the
trading, especially sugar and tobacco.
The general feeling in financial circles
is that the war Is not likely to be pro?
tracted and only some unexpected ac?
cident or disaster could effect the con?
viction that Spain must succumb to
poor resources. A feature of the day
was the hardening in exchange, demo nd

an hour and a half later than the sun.
At present Mercury is a trifle higher
up than Venus, but they are gradual?
ly approaching each other. Next Mon?
day they will be in conjunction., as
the astronomers say. Then Mercury
will approach the sun still more closely
and soon become practically invisible, .
while his sister planet will get further*:
away and grow in gribhtness for sev?
