that some of the dny's recovery ln prlces
may havo been, indlrectly, a result of
that declslon. The gravo trouble wlth

that In tho f;ico of atatlonnry demarid for

A. C. P. aold off a llttlo on the lllneas
of Mr. Rogers, but dld not act wonk, and
the buylng on tho doclino looked better
than tho selling. Boston anpenrs to be
rather hullish, and the hlghor tendency
of copper stock abroad ls regarded as cn
couraglng.
THE GOUPP BROKERS:
Tlio Gould brokers wero fnlrly actlve
and wero credlted wlth t.ho buylng In
Wabash prefcrrod nnd debenture "B's"
and Tcxaa and Paciflc. There wns no con
flrmatlo.i of the rumor of an advance In
tho Missouri PaolflC dlvldend. but some
wcll-lnformcd people thought It would be
Justifled on tho carnlngs.
AFTERNOON TRAPING:
The market waa flrm wlth nn advanclng
tendency up to tho early afternoon. Tho
Gould brokers seemed to bo the most nc
tlve of the ropresontntlves of the larger
Inlorests. but thoro was n gencrnl good

GOUPPS THE FACTOR:
Thc afternoon tradlng was not speelnl
ly actlve. but tho tone wns very flrm wlth
an advanclng tendency. Gc/ild brokers
contlnued the princlpal factor. But the
prosence of a number of strangers ln town
probably nccounted for a very falr
