LONDON BUSY WITH
TONE OF AMERICANS WAS
New York Market Limited by In
terruption of Telegraph. Service
Railroads Closed Firm.
New Tork, Sept. 12. London was busy
to-day with the- first day of the fortnightly
settlement, and did not generate sufficient
energy to stimulate activity Jn American
stocks. The tone In them, however, was
firm. Kaffir stocks advanced quite a little
on the nea of ex-President Kruger"s night
to Delagoa Bay and of General Botha
treating for surrender. Money was easy In
London, but in considerable demand in Ber
lin. There was no movement of Importance
In the foreign exchanges. The Chinese news
was still Indefinite.
The local market was limited by the fact
that the gale had interrupted telegraphic
communication at all points west of Buf
falo. In the circumstances People's Gas
acted strong on the absence of the cus
tomary pressure, from that point. Traders
easily bid It up. catching shorts and stop
orders. The Galveston disaster has ceased
to have any real effect upon the market,
and stocks which declined a little have re
covered all their losses. In the circum
stances It Is doubtful if Southern Paciilc
will push, terminal work there until It is
ecen whether the town will bo rebuilt. In
any ease, New Orleans will benefit by the
misfortune of Its neighbor, a. fact which
has caused buying of Texas Pacific issues
in particular. Anxiety about the labor po
sition in the anthracite districts caused a
eharp recession in Heading and Jersey Cen
tral. The buying on the- decline was very
fair, and it looks as If trunk-line Inter
ests were taking advantage of the circum
stances to accumulate more stock tor the
expected consolidation, Morgan, interests
were said to bo buyers of Northern Paciilc
common, which showed remarkable
The close of the railroad stocks was firm,
although trading wan limited. The larger
lnteiebts of the street seemed mote dlspt-cd
to take hold of the market, and the Duyi..,j
of Jersey Central on the declines of North
ern Pacific and Southern Hallway were all
ald to be for good quartern. People's Gas
was a little inclined to sell off. and there
was less activity and snap in tho ludubtrla.
and traction stocks. The market showed
nome signs of popular Interest switching on
tothe railroads. The Chinese position is
still complicated by the fact that the Pow
er,?, have no positive repicsentative of the
Chinese Government to treat with them.
Neither Germany nor England seems willing
to regard 14 Hung Chang in this light, ami
I rince Chlng may or may not represent the
"ovomment. The evacuation or Pekin by
ail except a small composite garrison may
be expected in the near future. Europe
seems disposed to take a more peacetul
view, and the possibilities of a European
war over such a point probably do not look
attractive at a closer view.
The net decrease in B. & O. earnings for
last month are understood to reflect tha
company's policy of making- extensive im
provements in Its property. Important de
velopments are expected in the way of the
largo steel companies owning their own
ships for export trade. In the meantime tho
railroads seem determined to hold off until
.the steel companies will make the price of
. rails to suit them. There Is, however, good
evidence of a revival of demand In other

after our opening, and the demand is easily
.Jn? T'a? ?. s"1 ,,,, of ,a'k to-dav about
the West Indian tornado, not so much about
"Jjrllrt Influence as Its effect on business.
There were no Chicago wires working during
the first hour of business, and telegraphic com
munication west and south was continually In
terrupted during the day. This Interruption hurt
commission business and caused a heavy tone
to the market during the tarly trading.
Th coal stocks were weak again, because
of fears of a strike In the coal regions, and
fcome of the, bull traders had advices from
banking Interests that their operations In the
market depended a great deal on the develop
rent in the coal fields. The Impression pre
vailed that some settlement would be reached,
and on this belief there was some speculative
buying of stocks in the afternoon.
N. P. common was one of the strong features.
The movement started yesterday with buying by
Halle Stlelitz. who were prominent buyers ot
the. stock again to-dar. They said their cur
chases were wholly based on the heary Increase
in earnings reported yesterday. On the advance
there was urgent fevering of shorts

he would like; to have an appropriation

Military conditions would be better, and no
