Insiders to rally It- People's Gas opened

In the granger stocks was sufficient to keep
them fairly hard, although quotably lower
than on Saturday. London did not do LOW
shares on the day, and tho public seemed
to be equally apathetic. Political consider
ations were considered to be checking spec

was a little covering of shorts in Sugar
and the tractions at the close, but the gen

rallied somewhat on short covering. The

Xctt York Mnrket Gossip.
Th following synopsis of the gossip in regard
to tho leading features o: the New York market
wa6 received by D. It. Francis. Bro. & Co.:
New York. Aug. 27. London cables reported In
tense dullness on the other side to-day, nnd tho
transactions of the arbitrage brokers wero on a
very small scale. Taty Included, .the purchast
of a couple of hundred shares of Pnns Ivania
anil Atchison prefi'iit-d nnd the sale of a. few
hundred shares of other stookF not more than
l.O'lo hlunex In all.
Bepeiition mi the stock exchange to-da of
statements about reluctance In Republican linait
cleiw t subscribe tn the camp.iipn nind appar
ently uited as a "bear card" on the market. It
was' stated that a luoker representing an active
matkei manipulator had eamussed the street
for .subscriptions nnd met with v-iy slight re
sult. These statements caused selling Saturday
and tliis morning liv bear tnideis, and soiim
Chicago houses also took the bear side of tli
market but the selling on the stock was ex
hausted before the end of the llrst hour.
Tho buying was scatteied, but almost wholly
for outside account, and in several stocks there
was an increased Imuowlng demand as a re
sult of the day's trailing.
The feature of tile early trading wns In Sugar,
chli.ign speculators wire the principal se'Iers;
their btokers were aggressiw ..n.i.irli to reach
main stop orders, and in that way fi.rctd a
sharp decline. The selling was accompanied liv
statement? Hint a uniting of directors would
be held this afternoon; action w..uld then !
forma llv taken In npposltioln to 1111 advance m
the dividend rate, piesldent Havemeer was not
in the cltv to-d.iv, and no directors' meeting ap
peared to hae been arranged for. At the same
time, there was nothing new In the statemtnt
two weeks ago that the policy of the company
would lie to pav regular dividends iuarteilj nt
the rate of 6 per cent i-r annum, and at tho
md of lach llscal vear declare an extra dividend
If earnings Ju"tlileil it.
It. It. T. was sold early in the day by betr
tinders, but the stock was quietly bought by
brokers understood to act for a syndicate working
In Hie interest of Metropolitan people.
P. o. Oas wa again bougot liv the same bro
ker who was noted as a heavy buyer on Friday
niul Saturday. There was a bear raid on lin
stock e.irlv fn the dav. but after It rallied the
most noticeable feature was the lack of atten
tion paid in any quarter to the threatened com
petition. I.ate Iindon cables were as follows:
London. 1:13 p. m. The uncertainties of the
outlook in China continue to restrict dealings
In the securities markets, and th- tone In the
main is heav. Consols are per cent lower
for both account". In the American depart
ment dullness Is as pronounced as In other (11
uctlons. but the tone is steadier.
Iindnn, 2 p. m. Business on the stock ex
change, is no longer in volume, but covering ot
shorts on the eve of the settlement has Impait
csl a certain degree of tondlnes. American
railroad shares continue heavy.
Tho following advice in regard to the cotton
ni.nkets wete received:
Cotton ruled nervous thi afternoon with only
a moderate order business doing. Although tho
weather over the belt averaged favorable since
Saturday, there is little disposition to take the
li-ar slifo until more is known about crop condi
tion'. Texas and Arkansas lcllewd to be prom
ising, but Georgia nnd the Carolims have been
hurt by the dry nnd hot weather during August.

St. Louis. Monday. Aug. 27. 1900.
The new- week made a very encouraging start

large scale, but in all other respects the situa

its were good and money was In lull suppiy and

rate for call and time loans. There was n good
and we.ll scattered demand for money, nearly all

Another Quiet Market and the Hay
There was not much life to tin security mar
ket to-day. A demand was had for Granite-Bi-Mctalllc
and also for United railways, but there
was no pressure on eiUier side of the account
and tho dealings were small. All other stocks
and bonds wuio quiet and nominally without
change of any kind.
