KEW YOKE, Sept. 27. The stock market
displayed considerable irregularity in its
movements to-day, but the changes of note
were confined to a few stocks which the
general list followed at a distance. The
clique in Northern Pacifio suffered the
stcck to drop heavily this morning, but
Beading was stronger, the shorts in Mis
souri Pacific had their turn and Colorado
Coal was moved up sharply for a time.
There was a sudden and sharp upward spurt
in Xew England, which rapidly rose from
37 to 3S. The effect was to check the
buving, which had been liberal in the fore
noon on part ot tne speculators, and the
market subsided into dullness throughout
the remainder of the day.
In the late dealings there was an un
doubted efiort by the sellers of yesterday to
recover the Beading stock put out, and the
strength imparted bv these purchases to the
rest of the list rallied some ot the more
The general list, after a strong opening at
fractional advances, lurther adtanced in
the early trading, but the declining tend
ency ot the rest of the day effectually
neutralized these gains, and at the close
prices were irregularly changed, but were
generally within the smallest fractions of
last night's figures. The close, however,
notwithstanding the rally, was rather heavy
In tone. Lackawanna shows a loss of 1 per
cent, but Colorado Coal is up 1 and Read
ing 1 per cent, with largo fractional gains in
Bailroad bonds were again quiet within
narrow limits, and, w hile displaying a firm
temper under tho demand for the better
class of bonds, developed no activity and
small chances aro the rulo. Beading 3ds,
liow ever, rose 1 to 6. The sales were Just
Government bonds were dull and steady.

TVlieat and Corn Close Strong and Oats and
Chicago, Sept. 27. It was a see-saw on
'Change to-day. After weakening early the
markets for wheat and corn became broad
and strong at the windup. The closing firm
ness in wheat was due largely to the report
of a very heavy export demand. Corn
rallied chiefly on the poor showing of the
Iowa crop report and the liberal irelght en
gagements reported here, vessels having
been chartered for 559,000 bushels. Com
pared with last night, wheat, notwithstand
ing the late recovery, shows fie decline,
com has a gain of fc, and provisions aro a
There were a few ontside buying orders In
wheat at the strrt, and, with stronger cables
and little for sale, the market showed some
strength. But when these orders had been
Jlllod trade became slack, and then the
many bearish features of the situation be
gan to be felt. The receipts in the North
uest were again large 1,037 cars, against 933
cars for the same day last year and tho
amount received at the primary points
footed np 1,073 000 bushels against 1,413.000
bushels a year ago. Liberal world's tdilu
ments last week, and the Immense move
ment from Russia, with considerable realiz
ing and short selling, resulted In the weak
ness noted. New Tort messages reported
fresh cholera casos in quarantine, and the
estimate or C56 cars for ednesday increased
the depression. During the last hour the
market tut ned Tery strong on much higher
cables and a report that French operators
were buying wheat in this country. A Min
neapolis message said wheat In the North
west was not threshing out as expected. At
tention was directed to-d iy to the small
proportion of the contract grade In the
dally receipts. The proportion deliverable
upon contract being received here dally is
about tl carloads in 100.
Corn Was quiet. Tho absence of frost anci
tho favorable weather Tor the crop started
prices off same, but there was some reaction
later on the good demand which sprang up,
presumably to cover shorts. The low a crop
report which placed the yield of corn In
that State at only 175.000,000 bushels against
850.000,000 bushels last year, turned prices up
some during the last hour. The course of
wheat probably helped corn somo also. An
othor factor was the possibility of a freeze.
The Burlington reports a greatly Increased
demand for cars. The withdrawals of corn
nre heavy. Tho Inspection fr tho day was
1S3.000 bushels. This largely ipunteraots the
effect of the great receipts.
In oats the feature was the free selling of
October by longs and the demand being
light the price receded o and closed at
nearly the bottom.
Hog products were generally weak and
loner. Closing prices show a decline or
from 2c to Be In porkand from 2Kc to 10c in

LOCAL AND GENERAL FINANCIAL NEWS
Tuesday, Sept. 27.
There was fair trading in local securities
on 'Change and on the street to-day, but
the market, while strong, lacked snap and
was barren of specially noteworthy features.
None of the brokers or traders, however,
complained of dullness. On the contrary,
all of them spoken to on the subject noted
an increasing inquiry and a fair amount of
business in hand. They admitted a lack ot
urgency in mos"t directions and a disposi
tion to hold ofl awhile in others, which
gave the market a dull ' and lethargio
look, but they offered no satisfac
tory explanation of the why and where
fore. The reason probably is that the
market Is in the shadow of the approaching
?;uarterly settlement period, preparations
or w hie ti have been in progress for a week
past. Alter the torn of the month, when
accounts ha,ve been evened up and divi
dends and interest paid, the market lor
stocks and bonds will undoubtedly take on
new lite and show moro or less activity and
strength throughout the remainder of the
The Day's Movements on 'Change.

Monongahela Navigation Company.
Rumors were current to-day to the effect
that the Supreme Court's decision in the
matter of the value or the Monongahela
Navigation Company's property and fran

rumors Dy the withdrawal of stock from the
market and a sharp advance In the selling

heard of a quiet inquiry for the stock and

National Lead Company.
Tho company has over $1,000,000 in cash,
moro than $7,600,000 worth of supplies on
hand and bills leceivable, nnd this with its
real estate, machinery, patents, etc., make
its total piesent cash value precious near
$25 000,000. Take the $15,000,000 preferred at
par and the $15,000,000 common at $60, the
total valuation of the property wonld be
$24,000,000, while its power to earn interest
would be on at least its full $30,000,000 capi
tal stock. The common stock will get a
dividend before many months or else the
cash will be employed in a way sure to give
big returns. In industrials, more possibly,
than in railroads, the profits of the business
are dne to the skill, integrity and ability of
the management. It isnot flattery to say that
Colonel w. P. Thompson, who directs the
Lead Company, and who is probably' its
largest stockholder, possesses all these
qualities. Wo regard the preferred stock as
safe beyond peradventnrc, and the common
stock is steadily increasing In intrinsio
value, which will tell upon its market price
later if not at once. watxmdc Gibson.

Cheese and Vegetables Are Firmer,F.ggs and
Poultry In Better Demand, Groceries
and Provisions Steady, and Others Un
changedA Satisfactory Business Pass
ing. Tuesday, Sept. 27.
Operations in local wholesale mercantile
lines are being conducted on a fairly liberal
scale, the movement to dependent sections
being particularly satisfactory; bnt, while
merchants generally are satisfied with the
business passing they assert that there is
still a little room for improvement. The
tendency of prices is in favor of sellers.
There are exceptions, of course, but where
prices are low the indications point to the
fact that rock bottom has been touched.
Collections aro fair.
Corn Is selling at lower prices than a year
ago despite the smaller crop. The crop is
late, but the weather recently has been
splendid for the growing corn, and tho bulk
ofthecropis now safe from frost. While
the crop is not equal in size to last year, it
is still a rouscr, and there will be an abund
ance both for feeding stock und for market
ing. Europeans are learningtonse onrcorn
for makin ' various forms of Dread and pud
ding, but as yet this consumption is hardly
largo enough to cut much of a figure. Oats
are higher than a ycaragn, owing to the
smaller crop and a good demand. In pro
visions the interest centers in tho corner in
short rib sides. Prices havo advanced
sharply, and the parties wot king the deal
are making enormous profits.
A plant for n beet-sugar refinery that will
turn out 5,000,000ponndsof granulatod sugar
annually Is being erected at Leavonwnrth,
Kan. The manufacturers will pay $4 50 per
ton for beets delivered at the factory.
Cheese Is firmer and higher prices are
probable The September mako of cheese
will be nn tho market the last or this week
or the first of next, nnd will command nn
advance of o per ft over presont quota
tions. New crop chestnuts are in the market at
2022c per ft.
roultry is receiving moro attention as tho
season advances and the market is steady
to firm at quotations. Dressed stock is
coming forward rather freely, hut livo still
has the calL
Eggsnroln better demand, but supplies
are liberal and prices remain unchanged.
Vegetables aro firmer, coinli lower, sweet
potatoes are higher, provi'ions nre steady,
