' strucd a bearish. There had been llttlo rain In any portion of tho winter belt in the
preceding twenty-four hours. Vlporous denials of tho reports that moisture was exces
sive In Kansas and Nebraska aided the downward movement. Receipts were fairly
lanre. and there was practically no outside demand for futures, though the cash inquiry
wa rood. Jinny traders who bought earlier In the week eased their lines over Sunday.
Corn was dull and easy, though not nearly so weak tut wheat. Tho Harris-Gates
crowd was not active in Chicago, and local commlsf Ion-houses had few buying orders,

Lsland rose 4 points to a level 2 polns higher
than yesterday'! highest, but the dealings
were small and the gain was not well held.
A risa of nearly 11 point In New York Cen
tral was apparently due to support in view
of the decrease In grows earnings rendered
for July by the system.
Industrial .Sonierrhat Depressed.
The industrials wpre somewhat de
pressed, but recovered In the Ute rally.
The banks lost In cash less than J3.O0".
(W). compared with expectations of a de
crease of t3.WO.0M. Adding to this the J4.
107,000 loan decrease leaves a discrepancy
stitl of upwards of 3I0.0Xi.uu3 in the report
ed decrease of Sie.443.5u3 In deposits. It wi.l
be remembered that last week's loan In
crease of over J17.CO3.O0O failed to find a re
flection In the deposit Item. To-day's dis
crepancy Is explained as due to a. process
of rectification under tho abstruse system
of averages used by the banks In their
computations. There has been considerable
activity and strength In the stock mar
ket this week, but It has been of an irreg
ular character and confined to compara
tively few stocks. It Is sufdciently ob
vious that the prevailing sentiment
amongst security holders is one of confi
dence In the maintenance of prosperous
conditions of the country and the continu
ance of the present earning power of se
curities. Holders of railroad stocks es
pecially show no disposition to part with
their property But no general public de
mand for stocks Is aroused by the tactics
of the partj which seeks to lead a bull
Jloney Stringency Not Feared.
The active leaders seem to feel themselves
exempt from danger of a stringency In the
money market, and have dealt freely In
stocks, shifting operations from one quar
ter of tho market to another, but confin
ing their operations to a few leading stocks
In each group. The sympathetic Influence
of these zpecial movements upon tho gen
eral list has been strengthening', and It Is
highly probable that they are designed to
support values to some extent and thus to
eruard the credits which the same larx-e ln-
1 terests are employlnr In other projects of
' magnitude. It Is a noveltr for - lanr In
terest to be committed at the same tlmo to
the long side both In stock and grain, ret
It Is generally assumed that tho so-called
"Western contingent." which controls the
corn corner In the Chicago market, is also
the moot Influential element on the bull side
In stocks. This U explained by the fact
that the grain speculation Is In the remnant
of this year's deficient corn crop, while the
prospect for next year's crop In present con
tlons Is considered excellent. Tho Govern
ment CrOD reDOrt Of condition cm .Tutv 1
published on Thursday last, was taken as
confirming optimistic Ideas of the coming'
crop, and the rains reported as dotes some
damage during the week have not been suf
ficient to disturb the general confidence in
a favorable outcome. An important influ
ence: also In maintaining prices at a high
level a the general conviction of largo
projects for extension of control In the rail
road world by existing large railroad Inter
ests or by new comers In the railroad
Chances In Railroad Control.
For many years the control nf th. tire.
reads of the country have felt secure by
the centralized holdings of a minority of the
stock. The Northern Pacific episode and
the passing of control of the L. & X. as a
mere Incident In a speculative turn In die
stock taught the lesson In the larger mod
ern order of thing's, and the buying up tC
great corporations- Is more laslly effected.
It Is likely that the prices maintained for
some stocks are due to the purpose of In
siders to discourage Its purchase for con
trol in the open market. The desire to con
trol Reading Is attributed to Tartous rail
road Interests, and the same Is true of Chi
cago and Northwestern and some nth.r va-
terns. The high prices of such stocks are
urged as an argument for on advance in
other stocks in analogous circumstances.
The Industrial field, on the other hand, the
process of consolidation. Is felt to navo
overdlscounted the future, and this class of
securities continues to sell at prices allow
ing n, return of money Invested such as
would Invito Immediate absorption In the
