THREATENED COAL STRIKE
AFFECTED THE MARKET.
CAUSED DULLNESS IN KEW
Colorless Bank Statement Caused
Some Disappointment Sugar
New Tork. Bept. 8. To-iJay"s stock mar
kot wan, upon the whole, fairly hard, al
though activity waa confined to People's
Gas and Brooklyn Transit. Even In thee
the trading was professional, and move
ments were governed by room-manipulation.
The threatened strike in the anthra
cite district had ths effect of checking;
trading even In stocks unaffected by ouch
a. contingency. The bank statement was
colorless and x little disappointing to the
room, where a good one had been expected.
This week has seen a day or two of very
fair activity, and a good deal of the dull
ness to which the market has got so ac
customed of late. With one or two excep
tions, the railroad llet shows no decline, and
in most cases unaffected by special con
siderations a small advance is recorded.
Even in Reading Issues and Jersey Central
the labor troubles In the anthracite dUtrlot
have had surprisingly little effect. London
was a more active trader in the early pari
of the week, but this stimulus was absent
The Vermont election had a. very favor
able influence, and probably for a day or
two dissipated AVall street's anxiety on the
forthcoming election. The return of one or
two prominent operators also encouraged
trading, and although transactions are Mill
somewhat Inconsiderable, the tendency is
toward wider and more active markets.
With the exception of the hard coal stocks,
railroads all show a firm tone. The bulk
of trading has been In Industrials and trac
tions. Tha Sugar dividend. Increased from 6 per
cent to i per cent, had the somewhat un
expected effect of depressing the stock. It
may be pointed out that the American
Hugar Company has now made three dif
ferent dividend declarations In three con
secutive quarters. This sort of thing, what
ever the trade conditions may be, is, to nut
It In the mildest possible way, disreputable,
and Is tending to kill public Interest in the
company. Tha unfortunate outsider has a
bad enough time in Wall street In any con
dition, but, where the deck Is stacked
against him In this manner, it is no wonder
he gets discouraged.
Brooklyn Transit. If it cannot produce
dividends. Is uncommonly prolific in ru
mors. Tho latest and most untruthful Is
that President Vreeland of Metropolitan Is
going on the board. There Is another one to
the effect that Tammany will compel the
company to put Its wires underground. The
expense of such a proceeding would Inevita
bly bankrupt the company.
People's Gas is in a somewhat analogous
position to Brooklyn Transit, and a good
deal at the mercy of the industrious poli
ticians. The story is that the new Munic
ipal Gas Company has been floated by the
People's Gas for the purpose of driving the
Ogden people out ofbusiness. What is pron
ably causing the depression Is not so much
the cut In the price of gas as the probable
forthcoming cut In dividend. If the corn-

with those for the year previous, similar

Imbibed, those of tho present week being

that similar comparloon-, would favor the

PRICES BULGING AT CLOSE.
AFTER A WEEK OF WEAK
NESS, MARKETS BULGED.
This Advance Wiped Out Mcst .f
the Decline in Wheat, Closing
Corn and Oats Higher.
Saturday. Sept. S, lSw.
The final close of the speculative grain
markets to-day turned out to be a most
agreeable surprise to the trade, who were
not expecting what really occurred. For
tho past Ave days weakness and depression
have held the boards, and prices declined
largfly. but on this the last trading day
of tne week, there was a sensationally un
expected change for the better, wheat re
acting '.c to "sc. which wiped out nearly
all of th late declines and closed the week
at only Kc to ?iffj;c loss. Corn was most
efTecte-1. that grain spurting c to ltc dur
ing the day, and the market. Instead of clos
ing lower for the week, was from 3;c to c
higher, while oits closed &c to ijc better.
The bulls' success of last week was not re
peated during the greater part of the week
ending to-day. quite a decided, and what
appeared to be well-established change ot
front takln? pMce, an all-round decline,
more or less severe, succeeding the sharp
advance previously recorded. Events of a
domestic and foreign nature were not favor
able to tha bull cause. Including an almost
entlro lack of speculative Interest, either
on tho bull or be-ir side, a most
serious drawback from any point of
view. Professionals have ruled tha
roost; one day forcing prices down
sharply and tho next day bidding them
up, hut to only a small extent, the losses
always being much greater than the gains.
This state of affairs continued all tho week
and Is expected to continue until stimulant
to speculation is forthcoming, but whether
this will be on the bull or the bear side of
the situation opinions naturally differ. Up
to within the last day of the week, when
the unexpected happened, the different
grain markrts were Insignificant affairs, and
as compared with th week before showed
a material faUlng off In point of activity
and business. Some Idea of the dullness
that has prevailed can be had from the
fact that real stagnation prevailed at times
and apathy was one of the principal features
of the week. This lack of interest of
course led to weakness, particularly as tho
markets presented tev: features of a con
soling nature to the bulls, who cnt thn

Speculative grain market for wheat
throughout the past week has been of a
very apathetic nature. Weakness and de
pression has predominated, and the market
would have closed very much lower than
it really did. only for the sudden spurt that
took place this morning. As It was, there
was a loss up to last night of from ?4c to
lMic, which was cut down bv the unex
pected bulge to-dav to He to ,G?ic only.
The conditions that have prevailed most of
the week, and the steady decline In prices
have caused wheat to lose quite a number

their holdings. This was one of the princi
pal reasons 'or the declines that took place,
and were of such frequent occurrence as
to cause no remarks. There were other
causes, however. Including tha large crop
movement, a lack of outside interest and a
less favorable cash situation, the latter,
w-hlle still very good, not being up to that
pr the week before. There were only a few
bright spots during the week, and they were
far botwec.11 and seldom resulted in any
good to the market, which moved along in
a half-hearted way. with few features of
Interest to relieve the monotony existing.
One of the bright spots was right at thu
opening, when the strong statistical posi
tion of this grain at home and abroad, gave
it a bullish tone, but it soon disappeared,
os later advices, both foreign and domestic.
came In bearish. Market cables as a rule
were not conductive to strength, both Eng
lish and Continental advices giving- little
encouragement to the bulls. Foreign buy
ing on this side might have been worse,
and has been, but there was a fair busi
ness transacted, and the outward move
ment from tho seaboard was an Improve
ment over last week, though largely oft
from the year before, the week's clearances
being reported at 3.373.100 bu.. against 3.
24S.373 bu. last week, and 4.353.90S bu. one
year ago. The visible supply decreased 32s
000 bu., the amount afloat decreasing 1,
410.000 bu.. but the world's shipments were
larger at 6.042,000 bu., as against 5.700.000 bu.
tho week before, which increase was due
to larger Black Sea shipments. Brad
street's also reported an Increase In the
world's visible of 2.754,000 bu., compared
with last year's Increase of 2.SI1,(W bu ,
whllo the available east of the Rockies In
creased 717,000 bu. Crop and weather con
ditions were favorable, especially In the
Northwest, where thrashing was proceed
ing rapidly. The most influential bearish
factor was the continued heavy crop move
ment to primary spring and winter wheat
markets, the posting each day showing up
very large. These naturally had a material
Influence upon traders, checking, buying
and adding to the weakness that prevailed.
There were but few reactions during the
week, and none of Importance until to

This wiped out most of the earlier loss.
anil the final figures for the week were 72c
for Sept., which was the samo as last week;
Oct. -,c off at 72?c bid. and Dec. Wi'.
lower at 73"ic sellers.
The local corn market was fully In as
bad. If not a worse condition during the
week than wheat, and especially from a bull
point of view. Like the higher-priced
cereal, conditions and -Influences were large
ly against a bull market, and, owing to this
and the fact that tho market was largely
Influenced by the actions of wheat, prices
naturally gave way. There was cjso but
little speculation, trading all through the
week being of the lightest, and at no time
was there any great buying HUpport. Crop
and weather conditions wero favorable to
the bears, and the movement to market
showed evidence of enlargement, the post
ings being greater and the daily country ac
ceptances being Increased considerably.
There was a decrease of 2.111.t bu. In the
official visibly supply, and the amount on
ocean passage was lncreneed 1.2s0.u(X bu..
compared with a decrease last year. Brad
street's reported a decrease In the avail
able of 2.2e6,tO0 bu.. where the regular visi
ble decreased. Foreign buying was light
and tho week's exports only fair, at 3.1(2.
271 bu.. against 3.717,430 bu. last week and
4.7SS.S76 bu. the same week a year ago.
There were few redeeming features to this
market until to-day, when the unexpected
happened, a sudden and unlooked-for ad
vance taking place of over lc. This was
started by the id advance at Liverpool, and
thu fact that receipts wero light, a demand
being created that continued almost to the
close and advanced prices as sated above,
making the closo for the wetk c up for
Sept., which wns 39Tc asked. Oct. closing
&.c higher at 37c. Dec. ?4c better at CWc
asked and year He lower at 33?hc nominal.
Oats during the week followed closely In
the footsteps of corn and was weak and
dull most of the time. There was no trad
ing of consequence, and but few fluctua
tions In prloes. which sagged down steadily
until to-day, when there was a sharp re
action of ?c to M4c, thus closing the
week's market c higher for Sept. at 21Ic
