The rollowing is from the Boston Globe:
The great pitchers of last season were
Duffer, Ureitcnsteln, Hawley, Nichols,
i'oung. Cuppy, Rusie, Griffin. Kennedy,
Dwycr. This season, up to date, the best
w.irK has been done by Xlchols. Fond,
"Dad" Clarke, Mercer, Rhlnes, Griffith.
Ilorfer. and inelor. Hawley is not tlie
stumbling block he was last season, -when
his enormous speed bothered the best
tatsmen. Young and Cuppy are not
pitching the ball they did last rail, and
are not likely to. Frank Dwyer. like
Griffith of Chicago, is a heady workman
and dead sure to do excellent work.
Ueekln is likely to do some good work
this season for New York, as his arm is
once more in good shape. Jack Stivetts
is shaping up much better than last )car
and on him deiiends lloston's chances for
a, place among the leaders. 1

the continued silence on lue part or tha
leading Republican candidate for the Presi
dential iiouiiuatttin exerted an unfavorable
influence on the railway and miscel
laneous speculation during the first hour of
business. Tne facs that Loudon re versed Hi
position mi the market was quite a dlsap
poitiUnent. and no was the comparatively
cool reception gle en tli a ."e w York city 3 1-5
per cent loan oa that center.
It had been expected th.ittbe latter would
be largely oversubscribed. Notnilhstund
ing the unfavorable influence referral to,
there :was very little pressure to scIL
outside or Mauh.1tt.1n. which broke from
105 7-8 to 104. The heaviness or tfce stock
was due to the poor statement for the
March quarter, the surplus being $384,761,
against $457,CC0 Inst year.
The (lei line in the usual!) active list
ranged from 1-8 to 3-4 per cent. Louis

The Treasury call on the national deposi
tary banks for one half the amount which
they hold to the government credit ought
to stiffen Interest rates and check gold
exports, and to this extcatts a good tiling
for the stock market. Speculation at 11
o'clock was weak.
There was Inercisert pressure to sell
stocks during ttie past hour, brokers of
certain leading operators being rocst
prominent in tlie grangers and Manhattan,
"the selling was hascd partly on cable
advices that the Spanish minister of foreign
remonstrance against the attitude of the
United States in regard to Cuba. Man
hattan, Sugar and Reading, however,
scored the greatest losses, Manhattan drop
ping to 103 1-2. Sugar to 123 1,2 ami
