?NEW-YORK, May lO.-To-day's recovery
in the stock market was lb accordance
With the expectation of the majority of
professional traders, This expectation
conduced materially to tho recovery by
restraining tno professional bear ele?
ment from further attack on prices. Yes?
terday*,) rather VloUtft declines mid tho
Increase In tho volufha Of trading over tho
recent average of tho market gavo the
Impression of a culmination of tho de?
cline. Then? was sume further decided
liquidation In the market this morning,
but the professional boar clement availed
Itself of this to covor tholr outstanding
siWt contracts. There wns ovldenco ol
? support also, presumably by those inter?
ested In sustaining values, especially In
St, Paul and Now York Centrai. Tho re?
cent unsupported condition of these stand?
ard stock? has had a dominant lnfluenco
on tho jfrhole speculative tone, and this
Morning''? indications that the further de?
clino was to be contestod helped docldTj
tho bears to covor. Tho long continued
decline offers attractive profits from tho
aborts, regardless of opinions on the
further speculative outlook. 'l'.he profes?
sional traders, therefore, generally turned
to tho buying side, covering their short
contracts, going long In the market and
then working for a further delay. There
was very little news to account for this
chango In sentiment, the general condi?
tions of a doubtful labor outlook, pros?
pects of further gold exports and other
considerations which have caused the re?
cent d?pressions being unchanged. The
market proved to bo sufficiently ovorsold
to make the turn for a riso effectual. But
the market "bulled hard" In the Stock
Exchange phrase, and run off quito easily
at the last, leaving only fractions of tho
day's gains whero they were not entirely
wined out.
The sudden relapse in Louisville and
Nashville at the last, which more than
wiped out Its gain, may have had to do
with the cotton showing. Another rumor
which got afloat on the tldo of the day's
advance was an alleged purpose on the
part of tho Secretary of the Treasury to
Anticipate the redemption of the 6 per
cent, bonds which mature next year. No
color of authority was obtainable for this
rumor.
Sterling exchange ruled strong, and th*
?uppiy of bills was vory scarce. United
States Steel new 6s wero actively traded
In nnd fluctuated over a range of a point,
closing wlah a net gain of %; otherwise
the bond market was Irtegular. Total
sales, par value, 13,825,000. United States
bonds were all unchanged on the last call.

EDITORS' VIEWS
What New York Afternoon Papers Say
of the Market.
(Special to The Tlmn-DlnpatchO
NEW YORK, May 10.-The Evening
Bun says: The tone of tho stock market
tt the opening of business this morning
was.variously regarded as strong or woak,
?ccordlng to the point of view. ?
There was nothing whatever In the way
of novelty In the morning's general intel?
ligence which accounted directly for the
extensivo declines scored yesterday/yet
the market opened with a feverish and
incertain tone, with the dealings In quite
/arge volume.
From the view point of the advocates
of higher prices It might be said that the
market's tendency was disappointing, in
lamuch as the absence of any untoward
fleveloijment8 explaining yesterday's
weakness might have been expected to
result In quito a sharp rally. The course
of prlcc-s on the other hnnd however, was
frobably disappointing to the bearish con
Ingent, Inasmuch as despite quito heavy
End, indeed, aggressive selling In a mim?
er of stocks, tho effects produced was
trifling. In addition, speculative senti?
ment after the closo of business yesterday
was thoroughly unsettled, and In all like?
lihood tho majority of observers of the
market expected to witness upon the
oponlng of business to-day a resumption
of the- tendencies which prevailed at tho
close yesterday. There is not implied,
however, any Impairment at ail In tho
locnl financial situation at large. Price
movements were uniform to an extent
that rendered comments upon the fluctua?
tions in particular Focurlii"H of little im?
portance. In tho early dealings Atehison
and Rock Island wero under particularly
severe pressure, but they subsequently
milled along with the general market.
Other active features of the railway list
were Baltimore und Onto, St. Paul. Union
Pacific nnd Southern Pacifie, Pennsylva?
nia and Missouri Pacific. The local Trac.
?on stocks were comparatively dull
iroughnut, and tho Industrial and mis
?llnncous Issues moved closely in line
With the railway list
Tho Evening Pest says: Both at homo
and abroad financial markets wore to-dny
, a somewhat more cheerful aspect.
On Wall Street as evidences were re?
ferred to as to the cause of the higher
prices, among them, the good railway
comparisons for the second week of May,
tho check to tho advance in cotton, the
fact that no more export gold engage
{nnnts were announced, and the generally
lopeful tenor of the weekly bulletin on
tho crops. Each of these causea doubt?
less played a part, but It may bo p.ues
llnned whether recovery In slocks would
hot .have begun without them. There are
humorous occasions, such as yesterday,
when the entire Wnll Streot community
makes up its mind that the quo Is hope?
less, nnd those, ns experienced people
know, aro occasions when a turn Ih near
Ht hand. Tho turn In movement o? Stock
Exchange vnlues to-day was rather do
clded, and sentiment, as Is usually the,
case, gained optimism nlong with tho ris?
ing prices. Further than this tho day's
?ovolopmenta signified very little.
The Commercial-Advertiser snyst After
the decline, which liad gone on almos!
without interruption for nearly two
weeks, some recovery In to-day's stock

market was not unexpected. Liquidation
continued In many quarters at the open?
ing and a number of stocks sold down be?
low yesterday's lowest. But signs of bet?
ter support at once bocnmo noticeable,
and When the selling slackened toward tho
end of tho first hour prices began to ad
vnnco very generally.
The character of the day's operations
suggested that the larger professional
operators who have recently been active
on the short side had covered in their
profits and were endeavoring to bid up
prices against their smnller followers. By
the middle of tho afternoon gains of a
point or more were recorded among the
active stoclu. but there was no outsld?!
buying, and when the day's professional
buyers sought to take profits In the final
hour prices lost a good part of.their.'gain.
Considerable Interest was taken In i the
action of the United States Steel Issues
In ??lew of tho acknowledged failure of the
scheme of the bond conversion. Beth
stocks and bonds werq depressed In tho
early dealings, but they received enough
support to prevent any serious weakness,
and later On they rallied wjth the rest of
the market. The day's operations on the
whole signified very little. The close win
unsettled and with sentiment as to the Im?
mediate future quite as uncertain as It
was at the beginning.

COTTON MARKETS.
NEW YORK, May 10.?Tho cotton mar?
ket opened firm at an advance of i'u'i
points under strong cables und renewed
bull support. While at first, owing to ilia
reactionary tendency at Liverpool, which
market after having sold up ll%'(ii;i',?
points on tJio old crony, onlhs, declined
to a level net Ahi'?? points higher; to tho
outlook for heavy receipts- and the expec?
tation of a bearish weather roport at
midday; shorts woro disposed to stand
by their commitments they wero entirely
unable to withstand tho aggressive buy?
ing of tho bulls, and prices wero imme?
diately rushed to high levels for the. sea?
son. May sold as high as 11.70. July 11,88,
August 11.02 and September ?.73. Then
reallng becamo moro general; room
lougH turned for prolllH nnd pilcos wero
forced down point by point in the faca
of continuad bull support, and tho decline
It becamo apparent that the room was
looking for a scalp on tho short sido.
But when tho weekly report of thq
Weather Uurenu was published at mid?
day, showing a much less favornble con?
dition than expected, the shorts wore
ngaln completely routed nnd prices woro
sent up nt a record rato. In ten min?
utes July hud sold up from 11.17 to 11.24;
August from 10.91 to 10.97, and September
from 9.05 to 9.72. This rally seemed ap?
parently to have exhausted tho demand
from shorts and followed by another re?
actionary period, during which trading
becamo much less activo. Tho decline
was started by selling of July, nald to
originate with tho leader of the New
England clique, and as It progressed the
soiling inovomont was swollen by liqui?
dation of the old crop months, whlla tlm
now crop was maintained by covering.
This movement culminated when a level
about net 1C5-6 points lower had been at?
tained on tho summer months, and wai
followed Just before tho close by another
spirited burst of trading. It was rumored ?
that a certain Wall Street Interest, prom?
inent on the bull sido early In tho season,
was buying for an advance of a cent or
morn, and tills added to tho general lr
regularity and foverishness. The now
crop months wero tho strongest features
in lire late trade, and at the close show?
ed the greatest gains. May closed at
U.C4, July at 11.24, August at 10.95, ami
September at 978, with the general list
?et 7<i?31 poluto higher, November scovedC
the biggest advance, closing at 8.22 against

DR. JAMES P. SMITH
FOR MODERATOR
In its Issue which will appear to-morrow; ?
the Presbyterian Standard, of Charlotte,
AVlll contain tho following, which will re-'
celvo the hoarty endorsatlon of many lo-?
cal Presbyterians:
Tho Standard ventures to depart from
tho traditions of the Southern Presbyte?
rian Press for once and to suggest tho
iiamo of Dr. James P. Smith, the editoi?
of the Central Presbyterian, for the mod
cratorshlp of the assembly. His election
would bo so eminently fitting for the
ar.sembly meeting in Lexington that wo
foel sure the suggestion will be taken In1
the- spirit in which it is made. Forty.
years ago this month ho was one of the
faithful lieutenants on Stonewall Jaok-<
son's staff, who helped his wounded com-?
mander off tho field of battle and protect
cd his fainting body with his own In the ,
terrible storm of shells and bullets that
swept their rond. It was he who brought)
Jackson tho news of the victory at Chan
cellorsvllle, who rode tho long and. dan-i
porous way to Rlchmohd for help to nurse!
him, who ministered to him. in his last,
hours, nnd who accompanied the body oC
