A REGULAR J1DSH TO PURCHASE.

KeW Yoisk, Oct. 24. Advices from Lon-
don of a strong market there for American
securities, together with the unexpectedly
favorable statement of the clearing house
bonks on Saturday, and the heavy traffic re
ported by officials of "Western roads, con
tributed to a very buoyant speculation at
the New York Stock Exchange to-day. The
transactions reached -the unusually heavy
total of 451,131 shares, of which 393,758
were listed and 57,373 unlisted stocks.
There was a regular rush to buy at the
opening, a large number of Dail
and telegraphic orders having ac
cumulated since the close of the
exchange on Thursday last. The execution
of these orders le 1 to a sharp rise, which
was well maintained despite heavy realiza
tions. The reactions at no time were im
portant, and in the closlm dealings the
market received an additional impetus from
tho purchase of large blocks of New Eng
land. The general market closed active and
fctrons: at tho top figure.
Bailroud bond were stron" in tone. Tho
dealings footed up $1,656,000. Prices at a rnle
were lite her, the advance ranging from i to
i per cent.
The general strength which tho market
exhibited in, the early trading was retained
up to the very close, the final quotations in
cost cases being the highest for the day.
Some of the characteristics shown in the
latter part of the day wre in nppearnnceS
more like thoe of a genuine bulLmarket
than anvthin" Wall street has seen for some
time. There is, of course, some doubt about
the permanence of these manifestations, but
it must be considered that speculative senti
ment shows a marked inclination to the bull
side and that under such circumstances a
widening of the activity and increased par
ticipation is qnite possible. London was in
active and even sold a little, but without
effect. Money is firm, but fears on that
scoie ate disappearing or rather held in
abevancc From Sproul & Co.s market
Industrial stocks continue the feature, led
by ChicagoGaR and Distillers, both of which,
especially the latter, give promise of higher
figures. Sew England scored an advauce
of 2 per cent for tlio day in spite of the most
strenous denial' or any deal. The general
list was strong, led by St. Paul, in which, ic
is said, a new and very strong pool is doing
the manipulating. Tne Gould stocks were
more active, led by Manhattan, in which
there were large orders to buy. abso:bing
considerable stock, which was hung
over the market at about 133.
Missouri Pacific wns also strong, and
"Wabasn preferred and common advanced
on buying for foreign account ai well as
heavy purchases for account ot Montreal
traders, the stock having been listed on tho
Monti eal Stock Exchange to-day. Sugar,
common and prefoned. showed u bold lront,
advancing sharply on buying which looked
to us as though for inside account. The
earnings of the trut for the time being are
unprecedentedly large. J.S. Bacbe& Co. to

Despite a Big Increase in the "Visible and
Everything; Else Strengthens.
Chicago, Oct. 24. Notwithstanding the
bigsest increase in the visible supply of
wheat over known In one week, the 'price
to-ftay gained jC. com advanced a full cent
and more in the face of the failure of one of
the best known firms In the trade. Provi
sions, too, were strong, but much proflt
prabblns by the bulls kept the quotations
pown at the close to slightly above Saturday
The conditions were In the main far from
bullish in wheat. Cables were lower, the
local receipts about 300 cars above the esti
mate owing to liberal Sunday inspection
and tbe weather was rainy. Just what it had
been claimed tbo fall' sown wheat needed.
It was argned that wet wheat would cut off
receipts, and there was pretty free covering
on the break which took place 'Saturday as
well as rather generous investment buyintr.
Another strengthening factor was the con
tradiction of tho reported big failure in
Corn was fairly active and strong through
out most of the session. The weather was a
considerable factor, as It was urged that the
rain would cut off receipts, and the firm
feeling which ruled In the other pits also
helped. Tb receipts were much larger
than expected, but as this was due to Sun
day Inspection It bad but little effect
Shorts were good buyers and there wns
some investment demand. Coon & Ca's
failure seemed a nullity, owing, it is taid.'to
tho general belief that nlien it occurred
they were even in the pit. Reports from
the country were mostly to the effect that
the husking was verv disappointing, both as
to qnantity and quality.
wot weather a ud the strength In corn were
sufficient to scare some ot the oats shorts
into covering. Tho close was at a net gain
The provision market opened strong and
higher, and the advance wns well main
tained for a while. Wright and Cndahy kept'
testinr the strength of the market from
time to time during the forenoon by offering
moderate quantities of pork, lard and ribs,
and Judging from their subsequent proceed
ings they appear to have concluded that it
was strong enough to absorb more stuff
without producing demoralization. Wright
sold 2,000,000 pounds or ribs, it was said.
Cndahy filled up tho buyers of lard, and

Philadelphia Company Comes- Out

TRACTIONS STEADY TO STRONG.
Repressing News Concerning the Enter
prise Mining Coinpany.
LOCAL iND GENERAL FINANCIAL NEWS
Monday, Oct 24.
After its triple holiday the market for
local securities opened moderately active
and rather irregular; but it was almost too
narrow to be called a goodmarket, the bulk
of the trading being in Philadelphia Com
pany. "While it was rather irregular, as
noted, vrak spots were 'in a decided ma
jority, but only in one or two directions
was any decline of significance established.
One of these was Philadelphia Company.
It was pressed for sale right from the open
ing, generally in small lots, and it sold
down from 21 to 21, reacted to 21J sales,
closed at 2121and was wanted at 21K
after the close. Tbe offerings were fairly
well absorbed on the way down, and at the
close the stock looked a little as if it
was scraping on bottom on this movement.
Ko fresh reasons were "given for the con
tinned selling, the best posted street peo
ple being at loss tor nn explanation. It is
possible, however, that a fair percentage of
tho selling may' have been for tho account
of those who cannot regard the advance in
the price of iras in any other light than a
bearish one. Thero was undoubtedly an ad
dition to the short interest also, which must
now have reached prettv respectable pro
portions. The Allegheny Ileating Company
sent ont a notico to their household
consumers to-day. similar to the one
sent by tho. 'Philadelphia Company
a wee'k ago, practically advanc
ing the price or gas 12K per cent, and
as the Heating Company is bnt little more
than a branch of the Philadelphia Company,
it is possible this may have been a factor.
A few reports of a shortage of gas were cur
rent, but at the office or the company it was
stated they were due entirely to disarranged
meters or defective house pipes.
The other :rasers were leatureless.thongh
the feeling on them was weak in sympathy
with the leader.
Among the tractions Pleasant Vallev rail
way sold at 25J for small lots and 25 lor
lnrges ones; Central traction fold at 29-9,
nnd the others were a triflo firmer without
being noticeably higher.
Westinghonso Airbrake was weaker at 134
sales nnd a close at 130133: Luster was Ann,
selling at 9 nnd closing at 99; Electric
Scrip sold ut 9391, closing in demand at the
outside price, and everything elso was about
the closing quotations of iast Thursday.
Westlnghouse Electric second preferred
was quoted at 36237 and 49 was bid for
the first preferred.

Enterprise Mining Company.
The Rico ifeipj, of EIco, Dolores county,
Col., charges that the Enterprise Mining
Company, in which n good deal of Pittsburg
money is invested, is paying dividends out
of tho mines of its neighbors, notably the
Rico-Aspen Company. "It has been an open
secret," says tbe iYttrj, "timffrom the mo
ment that the Rlco-'Aspen came into the
field they met with tho autagonismaorthe
Enterprise, but no one believed that
anything mora would take place than a
business rivalry. It was like a thunderbolt
when a few months ago tho Rico-Aspen
peoplo claimed that the Crawford and
Posey outfit were mining. on the Rico-Aspen
ground, and that from reliable information
from disinterested people for two months
theso enterprising people had denied abso
lutely that they wero mining beyond their
side lines. After repeated requests on tbe
part of Manager Browne, ot tho Rlco
Aspcn, he succeeded in getting President
Moffat to insist upon, a joint survey. Every
one was startled when they heard the re
sult, for the survey proved the Enterprise
to be mining nearly a hundred feet on tbe
patented Vestal ground. Injunction suits
nere immediately 'started, and since that
time surveys show the Enterprise people to
have extracted and on several claims are
extracting ore. They have entered the fol
lowing properties of the Kico-Aspen: The
Contention, Vestal (contact and vertical).
Aspen, seieniae nna uia discovery.
"To the many residents of Rico who for
Sears have ami ((assessment work on Dolores
Lountain and have made nnd maintained
honest locations, snch high handed pro

"That the pretentions of the Enterprise

A GOOD MONDAY TRADE.
The Demand Moro Active Than Usual on
the First Business Day of the Week
Grain Continues "Weak Other Staples
Generally Steady to Strong.
Monday, Oct. 24.
Trade in wholesale mercantile lines to
day was more active than usual on Monday,
especially in grocery and produce staples)
but price changes of consequence and other
noteworthy features were lacking. Some
of the dealers, while noting a good move
ment, were inclined to believe. that the de
mand from certain sources would slacken
for a while, now that the Exposition was a
thing of the past, .and were also of the
opinion that the interest in the election
from now out would hurt business more or
less; bnt others were confident that sales
would continue large right up to the closing
days of the year, when a lull always sets in.
Grain has not yet taken a turn from its
long speilof weakness, and, as will be noted,
prices continue to droop.
Dealers in dairy products expressed the
conviction this morning that the session of
the Elgin Butter Board to-day would result
inprices being advanced.
Eggs an poultry are enjoying a good
movement at tho prices quoted, with indi
cations of a higher rang? in the near future.
Sugar and coffee are showing a steady to
strong tone, advices from primary points
being moderately bullish.
Nuts are in big supply, but the demand Is
active and prices are well maintained.

There" were no changes yesterday In the)
McDonald field. The estimated production
was 19,000 barrels, the same as the day be
fore, and there were no wells added to the
list of those which are making 20 barrels an
hour or more.
Jennings .& Co. completed a dry hole on
the J. W. Robb farm which Is located about
a mile and a half north of the town of Mc
Donald. Mechling & Co. have commenced to spud
on the Clark farm which is located about a
mile north orBnrgettstown.
J. M. Gutfey & Co. are spudding on the
Ewing farm, in the northeastern part of tho
Gallagher Broi. expect to reach the Gor
don sand this morning on the Wilson farm,
which is located a mllo west of tho Walker
farm of Fitzgibbons i, Co., and four mile
north of McDonald. Tbey expect a gasser
in the third sand, and it 1st without doubt
one of the most important -wells now drilling
in the southwest.
New "Work Around Tlflln.
TiFPiir, O. Thero Is a lot or new work
startlne now around Tiffin. There are from
20 to 25 strings of tools running, and the
wells which have beon drilled in have
averaged fiom 100 to 150 barrels a day. Somo
of tho old -wells have changed from sas to
oil, and are now paying producers. The oil
is lonnd in the Trenton rock, or limestone,
as ic is caned ay the natives.
Most of the operations aro carried on by
the Sun Oil Company which Is composed of
Pew and Emerson, of Pittsburg,, O Donnell
and Wise, of Warren, O., and a largo num
ber of small operators.
Patterson & Sohns'-wellon the Erhmen
trout farm, in the Cndercliff field, was
showing a little oil yesterday, and they shut
down to wait nntll tankage can be erected.
Woodsfleld OH Field.'
The Morris No. 2, on the G. G. Morris farm
two miles southeast of Woodsfleld', O., is
still proving to be a better well than was
anticipated by tho operators a few days ago,
and is now estimated at from 30 to 150 bar
rels per day. Tho well has been flowing nt
intervals lor several days, being about 1,500
lect deep and almost lull of oil all tbe time,
the gas not being strong enough to make a
continuous flow of olL
There is more than sufficient gas to utilize
for fuel. Tho company has not yet ordered
tankage, but will do so at once.
Mysteries iu this field are things of the
past, and thosa who havo interested them
selves ns to this well are satisfied that it is a
good producer, and to further demonstrate
the fact outside parties interested in leases
in the neighborhood of this woll, whose
names nro unknown to tbe writer, have
commenced a well about three-quarters of a
mile southwescof this well.
Considerable excitement prevails In this
vicinity on account of the new discovery,
there now being parties here trying to gee
leases near the well.
