NEW TORK. April S.?To-day's business
on tho Stock Exchange aggregated baro
' ly 300,000 .shares, which is buck, to tho
low level of activity. Tho foot that Fri

the Southern Parlilo pool confirmed tho
disposition to keep out ot tho market.
There Is an almost Infinito vatioty of ooii
Joetures as to what the orfect of this
?will be upon the market at large. 1 ho
? distinct casing of tho money market yes?
terday seemed to givo relief from the
pressure of liquidation. To-day there was
aistlnot relaxation of this pressure to sell
end offeotlvo support at some points where
tho selling was continued, but tho market
continued to hang ln a susnondod and In?
animato condition-1 Yesterday's weakness

sufficiently explained by tho decrease In

Tho heavy soiling of Rock Island, which
?woe a feature yesterday, continued to
? day fromi the sumo sources, 'but there
was vjvldenco of lnsido support in this
stock also. Amalgamated Copper was de?
cidedly weak, owing to a relapse of.one

to oonnect the selling of Amalgamated

Tho money market was considered fnv
orable, but an advance to 7 per cent,

EDITORS' VIEWS
What the New York Afternoon Papers
Say About Yesterday's Trading.
(Special to The Tlmes-Dlspnti-h.)
NEW YORK, April '8,?Tlio Mall and
Express says: There were some cross
currents at work in tho stock market
to-day that operated In favor of a reduc?
tion of commitments on both sides of the
account, at least In the early transac?
tions. Prices vibrated frequently between
weaknoss and strength, but with the ad?
vent of the afternoon the latter predom?
inated and the buying wns of a better
character than the selling. It Is to bo
said of the fluctuations that they wero
generally compassed within circumscribed
limits, changes of a point or over either
way being rare.
The Evening Sun says: Although the
stock market tn-dny was occaslonnlly
subjected to quite severe pressure from
both the palpable liquidation of exhaust?
ed speculative accounts and from aggres?
sive operations from the short account,
the tendency of prices during the greater
part of tho session wns toward a higher
level.
For the first timo In some weeks observ?
ers of the dealings thought that thoy de?
tected evidences of concerted support. The
dealings wero.?nol In. largo volume, but
were fairly .vreTl..distributed. This morn?
ing's news Und' tho day's developments
comprised very little which could be con?
strued ln support of tho arguments of
either speculativo faction.
There wero furtbor appearances of re
" taxation In the money mnrkct, notwith?
standing which .sterling exchange' de?
clined further.
Trustworthy authorities In the latter
markot expressed tho opinion that the
downward tendency now evident thero
could be expected to continue for nn In?
definite period.
The dividends dcelnred and tho state?
ment nf earnings submitted constituted
all the actual news there was relating to
particular stocks.
' The Commercial-Advertiser says: Trad?
ing was restricted by tho fact of tho up
prnaclilng holidays.
Tho market nevertheless had a decid?
edly KtroiiKer undertone nntl prices at
times moved upward rather easily.
Practical evidence that liquidation had
censad In Southern Pacific and other
slocks which had beon ??specially weak
yesterday, wns the main factor working
toward Improvement.
In addition to this banks reported ? gain
at the sub-Treasury more than sufficient
to offset the .tniiill previous loss fur thn
week, ami monoy rates showed further
signs of relnxiitlon. There wan no parti?
cular features In tho dealing?, except tho
ex<*.ptlonal weakness In Copper shares
which broke In facet of t.ho decline In the
metal. The rest of tho list, nftnr sonnt
Irrepularliy In the first hour, moved for?
ward until after mid-day, showing ?jilns
from >i to ?i In railroad stocks at the
close.
Altogether the day's proceedings, as
may be Judged from th? slender total of
transactions, were ?mito unimportant.
The Evening Post nays: Little moro
need be said nf lo-ila>-H markets than
that they cam?? to n dead halt. This was
as true of commodities ns of stocks It
applied an well to foreign as to home 'ex
chiing-e*. Doubtless, approach nf i)m
roaster holldavf h>nl something to do with
tille. T?tere have b.-en times when oven
to-rinv's east wind and drizzling rain
would have served to explain an apnthe.
tic market-, an Impending trlnle-holldav"

WALL STREET GOSSIP
Facts About Southern Pacific?Evidence
pf Standard Oil Support.
(Specilli to Th? Tlmcs-Dlspatch.)
NEW YORK, April 8.?Tho stock mar?
ket opened gonorally fairly hard, as th?
street was disposed to taka a moro hopo
ful vlow of tho Southern Pacino situa?
tion in view of tho character of the re?
cent buying. Commission house business
was very light and traders wero not tak?
ing'any positivo attitude in view of the
narrowing tendency of tho markot to?
ward the holidays. Southern Pacino
showed very fair strength, ond was
helpoaV'by the knowledge that the con?
trolling Interest had been a considerable
recent buyer. It was tho opinion in rather
well-informed quarters, and especially
among the foreign houses, thnt the pool
holdings had boon largely liquidated.
STEEL EARNINGS 'DISAPPOINTING ;
The United Slates Sleol earnings for
the March quarter wero a disappointment
to tlm market, but the firmness of both
common and preferred In London was
encouraging, It looked as if tho decline
of tlio previous duy had about represented
tho? extent of the disappointment.
SOUTI???? PAC1 FI C :
In vlow of the defeat of tlio attempt
to change the Southern Paclllc boarff"nt
the annual meeting, nnd of the dissolu?
tion tif the pool, It may bo Interesting to
stato concisely tho present position of tho
oompnay with respect to dividends,
It Is opinion of the management thnt
? period of two years at least must still
elapso before dividendi? can be paid on
Southern Pacific slock. Tim management
has completely given up all idea of bor?
rowing money to complete expenditures,
a? the dtfflriiltles In the way of so dolll?
are admittedly too great. It has from
timo to time considered the advisability
of a siock dividend; but Iiuh always felt
that If molo stork was Issued dividends
would have to he smaller, and thnt In
both casce, stockholder? would get about
the same amount. Ilence, there Is noth?
ing for It but to go oh aiui complete tho
work already half done.
Southern Pa?llla may ho regarded as
cheap to those who can afford; to pay for
It and hold It a couple of years without
dividend return, it is expected that when
dividends eventually begin, tin- prlco will
not he far from par.
HEAVY TONE DEVELOPED:
A rather heavy tone developed In tho
ilrst hour In the absence of commission
houpo buying ami Home liquidation In
iilaoee, notably Amalgamated Copper and
United States Steel. Traders were bonr
UJi, Lut the professional element did not
seem to be operating for more than
quick markot turns In view of the up.
preach of tho holidays.
AMALGAMATICI) COPPER!
The duellili) In tho metal In 1-ondon
wa? na Important fai-Jor in the weakness
In Amalgamated Copper. Traders were
hammering It on the Idea that tho bull
account was weak.
STEEL SUPPORTEi/by lilH'SEMAN:
A A. Jlpuseman and other brokers
?im occasionally u/'t for the Morii/
Interest guie very Kood support to t'nlleii
Stales Steel, hut there '
some liquidation
wu-iscs, ?iresuinubly
Jt there seemed to -liu
through tho i-ommlsslfV
Ay iiuiii holders wba dirt
not Ulte the last quarter's fleures.
MARKET LESS ' BEARISH:
In the second hour tho room showed a
distinctly loss bearish spirit, so far as
the room traders wore concerned. Some
pressure In places bad not resulted In
shaking out any considerable volume of
stocks, while the support was generally
pretty pood. London was a buyer, and
some or the larger Interests wero repre?
sented.1 American Sugnr rallied probably
on the shorts, and the street was look?
ing for the usual announcement that
trade differences had been settled. It Is
noticeable that Sugar war reports only
occur l,he time of yenr when tho season
Is over nnd the cutting of prices might
bo expected in any case.
STANDARD OIL INTERESTS:
There wns poslbly somo truth In the
roport that Standard Oll Interests hnd
plckod up a little t. Paul In tho recen!,
past, and would be unwilling to sco' tho
stock work higher. Somo covering of
Western shorts was reported.
COALERS SHOWED ,13ETTBR TONE:
The hard coal stocks showed a better
tone, pnd the market seemed to have
gotten over Its scure about the rofractory
attitude of some, of tho miners on the
strlko commission's rulings. It was gen?
erally considered that Mitchell had every
possible Inducement to see that the terms
were loyally accepted.
EARLY' AFTERNOON TRADING:
The markot was dull but fairly hard In
the early afternoon, nnd although there
was no serious ntlempt to to bid It up,
sentiment In tho room continued to Im?
prove, and tho professional element was
rather disposed to cover shorts. The
heavier selling was generally well taken
and gave the Idea Uint there was or?
ganized support.
ROCK ISLAND:
Street & Norton were again the heavy
sellers of Rock Island. They sold rather
freely on Tuesday, but the support looked
a good deal better.
THE CLOSE:
Tho close wns under tho best, but bard
and very kilo.. Traders mostly covered
their shorts during the day. and tl_t ac?
count open wns obviously smell on either
side of the book. Thoro Is reason to be
Here that the day had seen l.ho last of
the liquidation of a considerable account,
and also tho covering of an Important
short Interest.

COTTON MARKETS.
NEW YORK, April 8.?Tho cotton mar?
ket opened steady nt unchanged prices
to a decline of 3 points, nnd following the
call displayed further weakness, parti?
cularly on the May and July options as
a result of lower cables than expected.
Full port receipts for the day contin?
ued liquidation. There were further rum?
ors concerning the probability of cotton
coming to New "York for delivery on May
contracts should euch he cnlled for, and
this may have had something to do with
the early selling of the nearby options.
But trading was quiet during the entlro
session, and when May hnd reached 10.20
and July 9.82 tho markot was supported
by the bull pool, which bought moro or
less openly.
Tho rally which followed was encour?
aged by the stronger tone of the New
Orlenns mnrket, w.hlch showed a gnln of
about 2 points over last night's finals. Bui:
after the Initial break tho market ruled
Irregular and seemed to be dominated nl?
most entirely by the hull lenders, who,
however, apparently had in mind merely
the sustaining of prices In the nearby op-,
tlons, while the late months remained dull
nnd relatively easier. Then May was sold
up to ,10.33 or 33 points over the lowest
of the session. From'this point, however,
there was ? slight renctlon under renllz
Ini' nnd the market wns finally quiet
?\??*? Mny nnd April nel.l point higher,
while the other ontlons wero unchanged to
fi points lower. Totnl sales futures esti?
ma ted at 125,000 hales.

ELIGIBLE COUNCILMEN.'
The reference to a report that an ef?
fort would be made at tho next election
to send to Council only property-holders,
Councilman Pettit said last night:
"It would seem from the report that
unless a man Is a property-holder ho
should not bo In Council. I don't see a
clear meaning in this. Beeauso a man
hns no property it does not necessarily
mean that he Is not qualified to represent
the people as intelligently as one who has
property. There axe men in the City As?
sembly who do not own property," but
I dare say they have the Interest of
tho city at heart as much as the propor
ty-holders."
