JBULLS in command.
The Good Bank Statement and Higher
BTAET PRICES 1I0YIHG UPWARD.
Grangers, Trunk Lines, Industrials
THE MONEY. MARKET WORKS BMOOTHLT
New York, Oct 31. The week opened
on the stock exchange with a continuance
of the bullish feeling that prevailed on
Saturday after the unexpected favorable
bank statement was made public The re
ceipt of higher quotations for Americans
from Iiondon helped to impart confidence in
the market which showed an advancing
tendency from the start. In addition to
the buoyancy of the indnstrials and low
priced stocks, which have been prominent
in the dealings of late, there was increased
strength in railway shares lite St. Paul
preferred, Northwest Lake Shore and
Michigan Central, which rose anywhere
from i t H Per cent, the last named
leading the upward movement The heavy
tonnage on the trunk lines both east and
west of Chicago stimulated purchases. Tlie
grangers improved a point or more. Among
the coal shares Lackawanna, Delaware and
Hudson rose 1J, while Reading and Jersey
Central declined HQl.
Araoiif the industrials. Distilling and
Cattle Feeding and Chicago Gas were tuo
centers or attraction. The former rose 2
toCT, and the buying was baed on leports
that the company has gained control or its
only competitors at the wet, although offi
cials still deny all knowledge or the matter.
Chicago Gas advanced nearly 2 per cent, and
closed at the highest figures. The commis
sion houses executed a number or invest
ment orders, the stock being taken on the
assurances hy insiders that it will soon be
on a 6 per cent basis. American sugar was
up about a point, while American tobacco
declined and the latter roe 1. National
Linseed Oil as weak and declined licr
cent. New Tork and New England, JIis
sonri Pacific and Canada Southern each
gained about 1 per cent.

that the old relations between the company
and the New Tork and New England have
been restoied and that the Reading is throw
ing some ot its business over the line. Ru
mors were in circulation that tho Metropoli
tan Traction Company would turn np as a
largo on ner of New Tork and Northern and
Manhattan stocks at the annual election of
those companies on November 9.
The fact that the money market worked
smoothly despite the calling in of loans
preparatory to the November interest and
dividend disbursements had a good effect
on the stock market, which closed strong in
Railroad bonds were active and strong

Messrs. TVright and Cudaliy Finish Their
Deal In Kibs Big "Winners rork and
Lard tower Wheat, Corn and Oats All
More Up a Little.
Chicago, Oct. 31 To-day marked tne cul
mination of the big deal in ribs on the Board
of Trade, and when tho gong rojndedthe
hour for closing ribs were still kir.e. The
pit was Jammed during the last quarter of
an hour, the general expectation being that
the shorts would come In and attempt to fix
a price bywash"sales. General expectation
was wrong, however, as the shorts did noth
ing of the sort, and the great deal culmi
nated without a ripple of excitement The
price at the wind-up was $12 even and the
indications were that the shorts had prac
tically all settled, netting Messrs. Cndahv
andWright about $1,000,000. The deal was the
outgrowth of an attempt by the packers to
break Wright who was "long" at the time of
the cholera scare.
Wheat oiqsed Jo higher, notwithstanding
big receipts and a very close approaoh to
the heaviest visible supply on record: corn
gained iromje to o over Saturday's clos
ing rates. Outside ot October ribs provisions
were weak and lower.
The general sentiment was decidedly bet
ter in wheat than at the close of business
last week. The cables were higher, domes
tie markets better and there were strong in
dications of a material falling off in the de
liveries. The receipts at primary points last
week were nearly 2,000.000 bushels less than
the week previous and the deliveries to-dav
at Minneapolis and Duluth were over 800
cars less than a week ago. The threatening
weather was stlso regarded as a bull factor
as it was thought It would have a direct In
fluence m restricting receipts Generous
crops were reported in the southwest and
the inspection to-day was 110 cars more than
the estimate, but this did not weaken the
market to any great extent.
Corn was more active and higher. The re
ceipts wer about 90 care less than expected
and the bad weather was expected to re
strict interior deliveries. "
Oats were firm all day an d closed with
c gain. The condition of the other mar
kets, wot weather and a good demand for
shipment were the principal reasons for the
The receipts of hogs were very heavy and
the market for provisions ruled weak, with
the exception of October libs. There was
quite a slump in everything else toward the
close. January pork shows alossofS7c,
lard ot 20c and January ribs of 17c.

DUQUESM IS LOWER

A BPDET IN CENTRAL TRACTION.
A Scheme to Help Western Pennsylvania
LOCAL AND GESERAL FINANCIAL ftETYS
Monday, Oct. 3L
October closed with local securities quite
active and the tone of the market about
equally divided between strength and weak
ness. Duqnesne traction continued to lead
the weak contingent, bnt at the decline
scored to-day it looked very much as if it
had touched bottom. Considerable stock
was taken, at least, on the assumption that
the slump was about over, those who sold
out just above 29 being conspicuously good
buyers. With one exception the other
street railway shares were also lacking in
strength. That exception was Central
traction, which advanced to sales at
30 on call, a close at 3031 and a sale at 30'
after the close, the support coming muiuly
from insiders and being based on the Mayor's
veto of the Bollefield street railway ordi
nance. Airbrake was stronger, being bid np
to 127. Philadelphia Company was stronger
and higher, and others were piactically un
changed lrom last week's closings.
The Market's Movements.
Philadelphia Company opened at 21
sales, sold up to 22 and closed strong nt 21
TO22. Luster sold at 9 and Closed at 8 bid.
After the close, however, it sold at 8,, and
thereafter was quoted at 8Jj;9. Duquesne
traction and P. & B. Traction bonds sold at
100 ex-coupon. Therowusa small sale of
Union Switch and Signal at 19 and the
close was at 19320. P., A. and ,u. traction
sold at the second board ut H, and after
tne third a round lot changed hands at the
same price. Duquesne traction sold at 27,
with one small transaction at 27. Tue
stock closed at VTVi bid, but after the close it
was quoted at 227K- M- & ! national
bank closod at 75. anu Central traction, as
noted, sold at S030, the final "curb" quo
tations being 30J0).
The unlisted stieet railway securities

stockholders of the above company notify
ing them of a special meeting nnd request
ing a full attendance. "This meeting," reads
the circular, "has been called lor the pur
pose of voting for or against the acceptance
ot a proposition made by the North Ameri
can Phonograph Company (a similar prop
osition having been made to all local com
panies and accepted by quite a number) to
enter luto an agreement with the local com
pany by which the North American Com
pany will for the space of three yoaia or up
until July, 1E95, have the sole and exclusive
right to exploit, lease, sell nud otherwise
dispose of the phonograph and all supplies,
appliances and attachments thereior 111
and throughout the territory now

In consideration of the entering into this
agreement the North American Company
pioposes to pay to this company 10 per oent
of tuc ultimate selling price to the public of
phonographs, supplies and appliances there
ior sold in, or sold to bo used in the terri
tory now covered by this company, and a
sum equal to 25 per cent of all of tue rents
leceived lrom phonographs leased or rented
in, or leased or rented to oe used 111 said ter
ritory. This agreement is made witu the
understanding that it is to in no way affect
the original agreement entered Into betw een
this company and the North American Com
pany, and that this supplementary agree
uieu 1 1 to continue nutil tho first day of
July, 1S93, at whicn time this company can
either resume its present style ot doing bus
iness, 01-make some other uirnngcincnt lor
the carrying on of the sale of the phono
graph. "The North American Company agrees to
push the sale of the phonograph lu all parts
ot tho territory as sttongly as possible, and
to this end expend $5,0u per year lor adver
tising in the' leading periodicals of this coun
try. It also agrees to purchase from this
company nil stock onliaud lelatlng to the
plionotciapu. Our stock on hand, including
s.ot machines, batteiies, supplies, etc, ac
cording to estimate ot North American Com

in cash in the hands ol the Tieasurer. It

"The amount of money in the hands of
the treasurer does not leprcscnt the profits

estimated cost of the works, including ma
chinery, is $180,000.
The political situation is given as the
cause of the "falling through," for the pres
ent, of a deal in city realty involving $175,
000. The agent who is engineering the
deal said to-day that the intending pur
chaser has emphatically refused to act any
further in the matter until after the
election. "I am also interested in a trans
action," said the broker, "which involves
almost as large a sum. In which tho intend
ing purchaser has also taken tho same
stand. Although1 both these sales will
eventually be closed, in my opinion, tho
present campaign has deferred their con
summation. Building Permits.

vance in Creamery Butter Expected
Grain Continues Weak.
Moxdat, Oct. 31.
For the last day of a month business
along the wholesale mercantile line to-day
was unusual ly active. Orders for stapl09 by
mall were fnirly numerous, as was predicted
they would be, and tho preparations lor
Halloween festivities imparted an appear
ance of decided animation to the movement
among the produce commission men. In
the main prices wero held at about last
week's closing marks, but where thore were
any changes they wore in the downward dl
lection. .Grain continues to show weakness bnt
hay appears to be gaining a little strength.
Local handlers of creamery butter did not
think there nns any doubt about an advance
in Elgin to-day. They were expecting an
advance of lc per ft.
The egg market continues to hold pretty
steady, prices ranging about as last re
ported. Cold storage stock is offering pretty
fieelv just now, but with tho majority of
buyers preferring to pay the diffeience for
guaranteed stock, it finds a freo outlet only
in tho absence of the latter.
Chiokens have been in pretty liberal re
ceipt for somo time, nnd snpDlies offering to
day are quite sufficient to meet present
wants. Well-developed sprinc stock Is
mostly inquired for, but flue old is nlo at
tracting a fair shaie of attention. Ducks in
fair request as quoted. Turkeys in limited
demand but will do bettor later. But little
inquiry lor geoe.
Inquiry lor cabbage continues brisk, all
arrivals being readily absorbed on arrival.
There is 110 change of consequence to note
In tho general situation of the onion trade;
a fairly good movement is being effected in
tancy Danveis, but with supplies fully up to

made. Celery moving steadily for iancy,
well bleached stock at prices quoted. "A
good inquiry exists for Iancy squash and
beets and prices steady. Bust line of turnips,
carrots ana parsnips will sell well and com

here in fair volume: demand is pretty good
for nil kinds, but more especially the varie
ties suitable for stand sales. There is some
improvement in the demand lor apples,
choice to fancy quality selling more treely
and market more firmer than a week ago.
Grapes still ooming forward liberally, but as
good demand continues supplies keep mov
