NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.
NEW YORK. Aug. 12.?There was
*ome continuation today of yesterday's
selling to realize on the recent sus?
tained advance in stocks. The bears j
were much more aggressive and sold
stocks with growing confidence ..s the j
lay progressed. The advantage at the
close was clearly with the bear conti
gent, but the bears by no means rout?
ed, and continued to absorb their fa?
vorite st??cks,which resisted Hie decline
unite firmly, but without overcoming!
tlm general downward tendency. The
effect of last night's Hurry in call mon- ?
? y was still perceptible this morning
when eall loans were made at 2 pel |
li is expected that the rash absorb- j
ed l.y tht> treasury on account of lha
government bran would in future be on |
deposit with national banks, but gov?
ernment deposits witli these banks, for
some reason, have not kept pace with
lb,- treasury's absorption of cash on j
bond account,. The money rate eased i
off during the day nnd closed at 1 1-4
bid. The bears by that time were fore
ed to seek oilu-r material for ih.-ir cam?
paign. The persistent weakness of
Manhattan all day on "reports of dc- j
creased earnings was a factor in their '
favor. Prices of stocks hardened very
perceptibly during the middle portion ,
,.f the day. after the fears of licht
in.v had somewhat subsided. The!
bulls took hold of the low priced rail-j
road stocks and hid up Northern Pa
eifie and Union Pacific over a point.
The bears' linal raid in the last hour j
was centered on Louisville and Nash- I
Bcllle in connection with the statements
of earningn for the first week in A. j
list; -how in ca decrease of ov er $1S.(MU>. j
Tin re was a "private" telegram from
Chicago in circulation reporting yel- 1
low fever in Texas and Alabama. !
Louisville and Nashville dropped two
points below las; night under this on- j
The market reacted all around, and j
the close was near the low point of
lite reaction. Net changes were very!
irregular, quite a number of the low- |
priced stocks showing sharp gains.
