Strength That Appears Is Confined
to a Few Issues Call
Money Is Easy.
New York, Juna JO. The speculative
rcovement which broke prices yesterday
was no longer In evldenco to-day, but the
market slipped back into a rather apathetic
condition, the dealings dropping well below
half a million shares again. Of this total
a large proportion was concentrated In a
few leading stocks, notably United States
Steel, Missouri Pacific St. Paul and the
Wabash. The support of United States
Steel was eHeoUve in steadying the mar
ket, as yesterday's sharp break In that
stock had unsettled sentiment In the whole
market. There was evidence of heavy buy
Ins of stocks by large Interests " which
liquidated yesterday and the day before.
This served to relieve a latent feeling that
the recept bull campaign had been a pre
liminary to a prolonged bear campaign.
To-days strength was restricted to a few
points and was not very well maintained,
the closing being dull and heavy. The
Southwestern and St. Paul absorbed a
large share of the strength.
Rise In St. Louis Southwestern.
St. Louis Southwestern preferred rose -I
nearly S points, and In connection with a
slightly greater rise in Chicago and East
ern Illinois gave rise to a report that the
latter road was to be purchased by the
former. The movement In the Western
roads was not accounted for by the crop
news, which wai rather unfavorable as to
grain. The coalers were rather neglected
and moved In a narrow and irregular way.
Reports by the banks of a gain In interior
currency movement up to Thursday night of
over ES.OCO.C0O gave rise to the hope of a
favorable bank statement to-morrow, as
the offsetting absorption by the Subtreas
ury for the same period was only JOT.OOO.
Bankers expressed the opinion this evening
mat tne statement wouia anuw u. uuum.
able expansion in loans, but the continued
ease of call money does not indicate that
tho surplus has been materially Impaired.
More attention was given to the sterling
market, which advanced an additional frac
tion. London selling stocks here freely.
Continental exchange was also strong,
while sterling at Paris fell another frac
tion. Bank of Enclaud Gains Gold.
The Bank of England gained nearly JJ,
003.000 In gold yesterday, which Is a reas
miring development for the whole financial
world In view of the heavy semiannual re
quirements upon that Institution. Heavy
pension payments . during the week are the
cause of the light demands of the New
York SubtreoBury upon the money market.
It Is a notable fact that the Government's
curplus revenue Is still under $4,000,000 for
this month, compared with nearly SU.000.000
for the sameperlod In last June, and re
ports from Washington Indicate that tho
Treasury authorities hardly expect the
year's surplus to reach the estimated llgure
of t9O.OO0.0CO. With ten days remaining of
the fiscal year the surplus Is still below
JSO.000.000. The rains In the West, which
nre delaying the harvesting of grain, prom
ise also to nostpone the demand on New
York for monev to move the crops.
There was an active demand for some of
the Southwestern railroad bonds. The mar
ket gencrallv was Irregular. Total rales,
par value. $3,935,000. United States Is cp.
declined ? per cent on the last call.

three othtr cases, similar to the one passed

In passing opinion upon the merits of tho
case, Judgu Hanccy held that the law of
1S97 amended the law of 1S31, and that ths
Supreme Court of the United States has
decided that the law of 1S97 is unconstitu

declared to be Illegal by the Federal Su
