THE EDITORS* VIEWS
What New York Evening Papers Have
to Say About Yesterday's Trading.
(Speclnl to llio Tlmns.Dlspatch.)
NEW YORK, March 3.?The Evenlng
Post says: The Immedlate consequunce of
this mornlng's general confesslon that
tho Aldrich bill ls. dead was a sharp do
cllno on tho Stock Exchango. During tho
early hours there was a fall of 1?2 polnts
n plece In AmtUgamated Copper, Atchl?
son, Consolldaten. Gas", St. Paul, Louls?
vllle, Now York Ccntral, Ponnsylvanla,
Southern Paclllc, Steel preferred nnd
Unlon Paclllc. Roclt Island shares dropped
even moro decldedly, and the genoral
oourso of values suggested that protes
slonal operators on the decllne wore uslng
the dlsappolntment over tho blll's ex?
pected falluro to forco tho salo of specu
latlvo holdlngs. Wabash stock was an?
other point of weakness; of courso, In
' conneetion wlth the reported labor troublo
on tho road. Tho decllnes continued untll
well on In the afternoon, but In tho clos?
ing hour camo tho recovery whlch was
to bo oxpected, where a predloted event,
"dlscounted" by several days of speou
latlvo selllng, comes to pass. In thls
flnal and rather vlolent recovery much of
tho day's loss In prices was repained.
Thoro was Uttle actual news all day.
, Money was atrong and sterllng weak, nnd
what waa rather curlous, money rates at
X'arls moved slinllnrly to our own, but
etorllng dlfferently.
'Among tho rallway statementa of tho
day t.lie Pennsylvnnln's January llguros
wero most strlktug. Tlu-y, of course, re
fk-ctc-d the blocknde.
The Commerclal-Advertlser says: To
day's market was very weak throughout
the groater part of tho session. Up to
tho cloce of business yesterday hope por
slstod thnt tho opposltlon to thi- Aldt/ch
bill mlKht he ovorcomei Tho general ver.
dlct, therefore, on readlng tlio mornlng
. news dlspatchea was that tbe imjrket
\ would go down; oplnlon dlfferod oTuy 'as
to the amount of ''djscountlng" that had
Olready boen done, A> the outset thoro
appeared to be somo dlsposltlon nmong
recent "short" seliers to tako proilts, ln
congequance of whlch prices held falrly
Steady for a tlme. But ns soon as thls
demand was satltlied pressuro was agaln
felt In all quarters, nnd the ontlre llst
becamo very weak. At several Blages
the market seemc-d t0 'J0 on 'hn vorge 'A
comph-tu prostratlon, On these nncnslons,
howev.-r. the sort of buylng w.hieh usual
ly appoars when demornllzatlon la threat?
ened came ln sufflelent quautlty to pre?
vent any serious result-. Tho rallroad
ptocks woro tho most vnlnornbln polnts in
the day's decllne, Baltlinqro and Ohlo,
Unlon Paclllc. Keudlng, Ht. Paul and tho
other favorltes nf thls gioup all teflecl'tl

Undoubiedly tlio prlnclpal suHainlng In?
fluence ln tlie markot lav ln tho presenco
of un oxiendfd short acpount,
Profii-laklnu by theso bear operators
waa chlelly spparent in tho afternoon.
The Evenlng Bun says: It wns not
necessary to look beyond tho iK-udllnes il'
tho press rilspatclit-s from SVashlngton
thls mornlng i? undtrstand tlie reasoua
for the general ond rnatorlal decllne In

-WALL STREET CtOSSIP
Manhattan Feature at Opening?Wa
hasli Was Rather Weak.
(Speclnl to Tho Tlinos-DlBpatcb.) '
NEW YORKj March 3.?The oponlng pt
tho stock market was rather heavy, ln
vlew of the genoral dlsappolntment at
the defeat of the Aldrich 1)111.. Tho do
cllno ln London also hjtd some adverse
etreot, especlnlly as forelgn .houses woro
sellors of stocks. Commlsslon houBes had
verv few orders, but such ns there woro
tended to stlll further reduce the specu
latlvo account opem__
MANHATTAN STRONG:
Manhattan was a strong feaUtro of the
market at the openlng and ndyanced on
buviiitf orders said to be for brokors lden
tlfled wlth the formor control. A fair
short lntorest and a- growlng approclntlon
of tho lnvestmont voltio of tho sioc'c
were the bull arguments. Goorgo P. But?
ler & Co. wero crodlted with the purchaso
of about 10,000 shares,
WABASH WEAK: , ?
The Wabtish lssues woro wook on tho
w-11-founded rumor that tho raanlpuln
tlon was ovor. Tho- buylng of Wabash
Isstios about noon was apparent y by m
slders for tho purposo of protoctlng those
securltlos agalnst an expected bear rald
on tho possfblllty of a. strlke of the com
panv's employcs. Brokers ldentlfied wlth
Gduld Interests were llberally . suppllod
wlth favorable polnts relatlvo to the cur
i-ont earnlngs of tho Wabash system..
SUGAR DIVIDEND: > " ?'. ? '???
In vlew of tho proxlmlty of the dlvldend
It wns notlceable that Sugar did not aet
well. Tho regular dlvldend rate was ex?
pected. After tho declaratlon of tho reg?
ulnr dlvldend on Sugar tho stock rallled
ratlior well and. although ; lower, ?Wall
Stroet did not oxpect nny change ln tho
dlvldend rato. Tho trado wa-s bulllsh on
sugar market condltions.
ROCK ISLAND: ;???'-?''??_
Tho selllng of Roek Island was ac
companled by a rumor of somo hltch ln
tho 'Frlsco purchaso. Thoro was no rea
bou to bellovc that the story was true,
hut traders woro bearlsh on the antlcl
pated Increaso of the common stock.
Somo of the Bolling In Roclt Island also
probably came from the Western traders.
COLORADO FUEL AND IRON:
Thero was a vory poor market for spec
tles or tlghtly held pool stocks. A little
forcod renllzing of Colorado Fuel and
Iron could only be done at a substantlal
reductlon. ,
THE COALERS HEAVY: ?
Tlie bard coal lssues wero heavy on tho
contlnunnce of mlld weather and tho re?
ported fnlllng off In tho demand of an
thraclte. Spoolallsts considered that
Readlng suffered from thn fnct that jolnt
controlling Interests were not conc<_*od
about Its posltion In tho stock markot.
CHICAOO A SELLER: -' j. '?'-?'?
Tho Chlcago houses had rather heavy
selllng ordors ln Baltlmore and Ohlo.
Roek Island, Unlon Paclflc and St. Paul.
Tt was thought that somo of tho selllng
round tbo room Indlcated that the banks
had glven warnlng of thelr lntentlon to
curtall accommodatlon to pools In oon
sequonco of tho heavy corporallon demand
on tho money mnrkot.
BALTIMORE AND OIHO:
London was rather a heavy seller, bf j
Bnltlmoro and Ohlo. nnd one of tne
loaders of tho Western crowd, vory prom
Inent ln the market last September, waa
credltod wlth a good deal of tho realizlng
in Baltlmore and Ohlo.
AMALGAMATED COPPER:
Amalgamated Coppor mado Its flrst seri?
ous check after a long period of advanco.
Thore ls somo reason to thlnk. howevei, ]
that tho Standard Oll interests aro more
bulllsh on tho tradu situation and havo
recently taken up Amalgamated Coppor.

COTTON MARKETS.
NEW YORK, March 3.?Tho' -cotton

less Irregular. Tho Llverpool market at
the tlme of tho,local openlng was rather
better than oxpected, belng Z_m polnts
hlgher, and thls Imparted a flrmer tone to
the lnltlal business. Prices aftor tho
oponlng lmprovod a point or two, notwith
stiindlng tlie Hoavier movement whlch
forccasted at 28,000 bales for the day,
turned out 29,568 bales agalnst 23,92b balCB
last yoar. At the better level, however,
thore was conslderable senlng pressuro.
so much, in fact, that it led to .thp.beU.cl
that the cllque intorests wero llqultlatlng..
Later Llverpool cables Indlcated an etislor
tone In that market, and tho recelpts estl
mated for leading polnts to-morrow.show?
ed a contfnuation of the expanding move?
ment. . But when thls selllng had carrled
prlcos to a point about 4_>11 poln s below
tho best flgures for the active optlons, tho
cllque agaln. sttpported valuos and tho
markot undorwent a partlal recovery. Iho
exports for tho day wore seen to bo llght,
however, amounting to but o-Wl bales;
and more favorabio weather condltions
were reported from the South wlth the
spot markets, whlle hlgher ln speclal
casos, showlng on tho whole an oasler
tone. In addltion to thls room Judged the
market rather "toppy," and thore was a
flnal break, whlch carried prices rapldly
downward on the nearby posltlons-wlth
