STOCKS RATHER HEAVY.
JEffect of Supreme Court Decision In
Freight Association Cuse.
New York, March 25 Stocks after a
steady oreaing became active and weak.
Firms with Western connections were again
heavy sellers of the grangers and South
western issues, and under this pressure
prices dropped anywhere from 1-2 to 1 3-1
per coat- There were no new developments
to accuuut Tor the .heaviness of the market,
and the desire of holders to sell is ttill due
to the decision rendered on Monday by the
United States Supreme Court in the Trans
Missouri Freight Asvciatloi caie.
The opinion prevails that the roads will
have to abandon the various associations,
and that lively cutting or rates will be witr
nessed in the early future. Burlington &
Quincv led the downward movement, fall
ing 1 3-4 to 71 1-2, Rock Island declined
1 1-4 to 64 1-2, North west 1 1-1 to 105 fi-S,
Big Four 3-4 to 29, Lake Shore 1 to 167,
Jersey Central 1 1-8 to S6. New York Cen
tral 7-S to 99 3-8. Omaha 7-8 to 58 3-8
and Louisville & Nashville 3-4 to 46.
The decline was checked aronnd 11 o'clock
by purchases for both accounts and a rally
or 1-1 to 1 1-8 per cent followed Jersey
Central recovered 1 to 87, Burlington &
Quincv 1 1-8 to 72 3-8, New York Central
3-4 to 100 1-8 and Omaha 0-8 to 59.
At 11 o'clock speculation was steady
at the rally noted.
Stock showed a tendency to Improve
after 11 o'clock, owing to moderate pur
chafes to cover short contracts. Rnl
bcr preferred Sugar, Jersey Central, the
Grangers and international issues wire
among the firmest issues. Sugar rose to
112 3-1, and at one time commanded a
premium for use. London bouses bought
St. Paul, and traded on loth sides ot the
account in Louisville & NuMivfflc. There
was little news afloat to afreet prices, and
operators were watching the eff ect or the
trans Missouri decision before entering
extensively into new contracts. At noon
the market was firm, except for Jersey
Central, which was inclined to weakness.
