and Berlin, but Easy In Paris
Railroad Stocks "Firm.
New York, Aug. 8. Tradlns in tho London
market has fallen oft to an even narrower
rajiRo that that In Xetv Tork und tlio
changes on tho day were merely nominal.
Consols, however, hhowed quito a Httlo
i-treiiRth on the euccces of the war loan and
tho expectation that tho shipments of gold
from America would materially relieve tho
London money market.
An examination of tho ratio between the
Paris exchange and that In Xew York will
easily show that shipments of gold to Paris
tiro not profitable at Tircsent. It is prob
jilile, however that such gold as might ro
to Paris to-morrow would bo really a trans
action for London, nudo direct to save
Money continued In sood demand In Lon
don and Berlin, but was relatively easy In
Paris. Berlin exchanjo Bhowed noticeable
t-trenfrth, and there Is evidently no present
demand for Rold In that center. The sold
Fhipmcnts. eo far, are somethlnjr under J5,-
. OW.O00, but will probably bo larger before
Vhe week Is out.
n the local market tlio period of stacna-
jti Inaugurated at the beginning of tho
k. continued and tho trading in most
jcpartmenta was of tho most limited char
ncter. In Fpltn of the usual tendency of a
neglected market to eag, prices were very
fairly maintained. The possibilities of Mr.
33ryan's speech In accepting tho nomination
encouraged a littlo professional selling, but
the stock was for tho most part well taken.
Individual movements of stocks wero
practically unimportant. The pool opera
tions in Rubber cctiscd and the price re
coiled early on a few sales of long stock.
Tractions were weak, without any very
definite pressure. The railroad stocks were
Cull hut firm.
Tho close was as dull and Idle aa the
trading for tho rest of tho day. but very
fair strength was shown. The buying In
Missouri Pacific and Atchison Issues was
considered good, and railroads generally
received sufficient support to resist any
pressure from traders.

movements In Brooklyn Transit seemed

It has been conjectured by authorities

an giving the Republican committee a
chance to extract funds for campaign pur

the market before the fighting Is over.
It is probable, however, that at no time
for years has the market been In so good
a position to stand a break of that kind.

New York Market Gossip.
The following synopsis of the gossip In re
gard to the leading features of the New York
market was received by D. R, Francis. Bro. &
New York. N. Y., Aug. 8. London cables
reported tho market on the other side flat for
Americans, with prices about even with ours.
With tho dull market on this side, there was
little opportunity for arbltrago trading, und
the total transactions for foreign account
amounted to only 1.100 shares, mostly sales.
There was less commission business in tho
market to-day and the tiocr of the exchar.fo
presented a more lifeless appearance than on anv
day for a long period. The ticker was idle .t
freoucnt Intervals, and most of the day thero
were more brokers In the doorways and lobbies
than on the floor of tho exchange.
In the last hour tho traders who were noted
as sellers of stocks early in the dav started cov
ering of shorts, and this covering caused a
recovers of about H point In several stocks.

There wxs more Interest In R. R. T. tlinn
in any other stock on list. F. w. Savin & Co.
were the largest sellers, and Bell & Co. were
the principal buyers. Brokers that are bearish
on the stock brouaht up the list of Judgments as
a reason for elllng the stock. These Judg
ments are mostly for personal injuries and are
generally now being brought before higher courts
Rubber common was traded In on a fairlr
largo scale, but the advance did not attract
as much attention ns It did yesterday. Host
of the buying orders came from Inside Interests.
Tho gold shipped on the Oceanlo to-day

LOCAL STOCKS AND IIOMIS.
Only b. Few Trndt-si Mnde and GfiicrnI
There was no particular feature to tlio market
to-day. and no change of important e In prl:es.
The demand was generally quiet, neither buyeis
or selieis seeming to exeit themselves in mak
ing trades, the result ot which was that tlio
dealings were small. The usual quotations were
made m the .llfl'eient stocks and bonds, especial
ly street railways. In which there were a. few
changes, but none were of particular significance.
The trading this morning was light and con
fined to the few favorites on most active secu
rities. The initial deal was in one 3Iissourl-Edl-son
3s at $04.50. which was lower than thev have
been quoted. This was followed by tho ."ale of
five shares of "Mib" stock at J7G, and one United
Railway 4s at SS5.25.
Trust and bank stocks wero quiet, the former
being strong and tho latter fcteauy. Mining stocks
were dull and weak.
