Stocks The stock market showed
more animation than on any previous
day of this week, and there was one
hour of fairly active irading. The
Btatemeot of tbe New York Central,
which was specially favorable, helped
materially to produce this result, aided
by the successful settlement of the
diflicullies under discussion at Chi
cago and renewed purchasing for tbe
account of the Chicago people and
London. The Wabaih was the special
feature in the transactions, as were
also Canada Southern and Michigan
Central. The trading in the la'tar
stocks was accompanied by talk of a
dividend, and it was reported that tbe
Vanderblts were heavy buyew. St
Taui was bought largely by the Chi
cago people and it wts the leader in
the speculation today. Chattanooga
was remarkably weak, especially
toward the clore, but in this nspect it
is an exception. The market was
etrotg from the opening to tbe close.
The openiDg was tame hot strong, and
while first prices generally showud ad
vances of Irom I to per cent., Omaha
was up j and Missouri Pacific down f.
Trading, thoogh Arm, was quiet,
until after 11 o'clock, when tbe
buy ng gathered fjree over the whole
trade, and was esp'cially roiiceahle in
St. Paul and Canada Southern. Liter
the market settled down to the usual
dullness, but remained firm until tbe
cloee, which was at or near the best
prices cf the day. St Paul furnished
30,215 and Lackawanoa and Lake
Shore over 10,000. Everything on the
active list is higher tonight, but for
fractional amounts only, Canada
Southern being first with j per cent.
For Saturday there Las been a very
good demand and movement by agents
as tbe result of new business wnicb,
with deliveries on old orders, gives a
large total of sa'es. Jobbers bave
been active and a very latga trade is

' Chicago, III., September 11. Tho
grain markets were all Wtak and low
er. Lirxe receipts of wheat, an esti
mated increase in the visible supply,
coupled wifi fine weather and the
prospects of liberal receipts next week,
shook the confidence of holders.
Prices, however, fluctuated within a
narrow range and eloped c under yes
terday. Corn developed increased
weakness and ranged lower, touching
the lowest figure since tbe July bulge.
Tbe weakness was attributed to in
creased receipts, weak foreign markets
and tbe decline in wheat October
declined to 40 jo and closed at 40gc.
The shipping demand was good and
vessel room was tsken for the Urge
total of 950,000 bushels. Oats also
rnled weaker and closed lower. Flour
