THE MARKET
WASJNERT
Speculativo Sentiment Was
Almost Paralyzed.
CHANGES ALL FRACTIONAL
Appearance of the Market Suggested
That Self-Constituted Protectors
Were Willing to See the Down?
ward Movement,
(By Associated G????.)
(<EW TORK, .May 27.-The only sig?
nificance In to-?lay's market movement
centered In a handful of stocks and in
these prices moved contrary-wise with tho
result that speculative sentiment wa?
wholly confused ami almost paralyzed.
The whole market was Inert to the de?
gree of lethargy, and In very few cases
war,there a movement exceeding a email
fraction. Comfort was secured from tlio
evidence of support In Bt. Paul, Penn?
sylvania, United States Bteol and for a
short timo after the opening In a few
other Bpeculatlvo stock?. But on the
Other hand there was obvious continua?
tion of liquidation In Rock Island and the
l'aclflcs and the coalers were generally
Incliner] to heaviness.
The brief upward movement In Reading
seemed to have no othor purpose ttun to
correct this Impression aa to tlio coalers.
Occasionili ralliera In the market, which
were Invariably led by Bt. Paul, were
mude In the Intervals between the ex?
ecution of selling orders and were not
pursued with any aggressiveness. The
appearance of the market suggested that
tno3?; who had constituted themselves
Rs protectora were satisfied to acuulesco
In a downward movement of prices, while
tlio sellini- pressure lasted, but sought
to Improve tlie price level by bidding
up when no serious obstacle was .encoun?
tered. Thero was very little now?
of miportanco bearing on values
and little attention was paid to
?what there was. The rise ot a point In
United otates Steel preferred was at?
tributed to reports o? the purchase of
300,000 tons or upwards, of pig-Iron by
tbe corporation for delivery during the
late summer months. The gain was lost
before the close.
Ht. Paul got as much at 1 3-8 over last
night, and was near the high lovel sev?
eral times during the day, but It closed
a shade under last night. The weakness
of Rock Island -was unexplained boyond
the general argument that the sum ot
the market prices of tho securities ex?
changed for old Ro<-k Island stock make
a valuation for thut stock considerably
above that prevailing for other similarly
situated stocks. Southern Pacific, Union
Pacific and Baltimore and Ohio rose near?
ly a point. t

TBB AFTERNOON TRADINOl
The market In .the early afternoon became
rather narrow wltnrrot ?triking feature?. Early
advances were upon the whole maintained, but
there vr?? no aggreaslT? t.uylng anywhere, anil
mm? Indication of premure In places, notably
Rock Island.
BUYING IN READING GOOD:
Tha buying In Heading hy W. 0. Sheldon wa?
considered good and vna understood to be of
an Investment cbincter. It ta noticeable that
the hard coal ?locks have only to a very mod?
erato eitnnt ?bared the recent market depres
alona. while the buying in them ba? been uni'
formly good. There Is no rea-ion why Reading
?bould not at leatt make as good a statement
as Erie, and there ta soma disposition to dis?
count It.
NEW YORK CENTRALI
New York Central wa? rather heavy, and In
spite of the fair demand for It In the loan
crowd, failed to rally mat??rla]ly. It looked aa
it there was scattering long ?took coming out.

cline ou near tuoutbs, ?lille late months were
unchanged to 4 points higher. Cables were
about na expected on th? oltl months: other In
linearos were morn or less conflicting. Tbe port

heavily ns compared with Inat year, but on tb?
other hand estirantes for the week Into eight
?.bowed ? decreasing tendency, and tho weather
?wus not entirely satisfactory in somo sections,
though favorable In other?. Trading was mtn'h
less active after the call, and after the llrst
demanda for the new crop had beeu filled tha
market utrncd easier, declining to a level uet
2(3120 poluta lower. At this time July sold at
11.12, August 10.08 nntl September ut inni and
December ?t 0.48. At this level there was con?
siderable covering, notwithstanding tbe still
further losses tit Liverpool, and the market was
?lowly rallied.
All tbrnuch the session May was comparative?
ly neglected, and tho course of that option led
to the opinion, more or losa generally expressed
on the fioor, that thu speculative abort Interest
In that option had pretty thoroughly covered nnd
that further seussllotiul developments In that
connection were therefore unlikely. Still, lu
the iifieriioon ? tin t month Bold considerably
higher. The New Buginoti clique leader reit?
erated his lutentlou of leaving for Europu on thn
third, hut during tlio afternoon large buying
orders of the late positions were credited to
this luterest, and New Orleans? also sent buying
order?. On tho evidence of this support room
?harts turned for cover, nnd tbe market became
moro active, touching it new high level for the
diiy Just beforo tho close, ami closing strong

THE CHOICE
OFSENATORS
Legislators Elected In Novem
ber Will Have a Voice.
MAJOR DANIEL TO WIN
Not Likely to Have Any Opposition, But
Thero Will Be a Contest for the
Seat of Senator Thomas
S. Martin.
Contrary to renerai expectation, the
State Senators to be elected on the Tues?
day "alter the flrat Monday In Novem
ber, 1903, Including the new Senator given
to Richmond olty by the 1902 reapportion
ment, will serve four years from January
1, 1904, or until January 1. 1908. Their suc?
cessors are to be chosen at the November
election, 1907. These Senators to be cho?
sen next November will, therefore, have
a voice in the selection of two United
States Senators. In the fall of 1901 a suc?
cessor to Senator Daniel will be chosen,
and In the spring ot 1906 a successor to
Senator Thomas 8. ?Martin Is to be chosen.
Senator Daniel, It le said, will be re-elect?
ed without opposition In his own party.
For the succossloii to Senator Martin
there will be a contest In the party. At
least one gentleman will contest the honor
with him. Just who that one will be is
yet almost as uncertain as the Benator
?hip Itself.
CHOOSE TWO SENATORS.
The members of the State Senate cho?
sen this fall will have the choice of two
Senators, but unless the party plan of
primary he repealed they will merely
vote as they are Instructed. In tho event
that no Democrat aspires to succeeyd Sen?
ator Daniel, there will be no Senatorial
primary this summer. The State Central
Committee of the Democratic party will
merely declare him the Democratlo nom?
inee, and every Democratic member of the
General Assembly will be pledged to vote
for his re-eleotlon.
The situation In 1905 is the more Inter?
esting.' In the event that there are more
than two candidates in the party primary
and that no one has a majority, it may
then fall to the lot of the General Assem?
bly to elect from those voted for. Nat?
urally the man securing- the largest vote
will be the strongest candidate. If, Indeed,
the party plan does not provide for plu?
rality nomination. This feature of the pri?
mary plan'may be changed, however, be?
fore 1900. There Is considerable opposi?
tion to nomination of Governor and Sena?
tor by a minority vote.
LEGALIZED PRIMARIES.
There Is now pending in the General
Assembly a plan for legalized primaries,
wherein delegates, are seleoted to a dele?
gated convention, the man securing a
majority of the delegates being entitled
to the nomination by the convention. In
the event no candidate receives a major?
ity, the fight for the nomination would
then be settled In the convention, and In
that event the man receiving the largest
vote In the primaries may not be the suc?
cessful man. Under this plan the county
or city would be the unit, and the ex?
pense o? the primary would be borne by
the State, Instead of by the candidates,
as under the party plan now In vogue.
Furthermore, such a legalized primary
would be held under regulations prescrib?
ing heavy penalties for the use of jnoney
or other Inducements to voters or~work
ers.
The fact that twenty Senators to be
chosen this fall, who will have a vote In
the selection of Senator Martin's suc?
cessor, will make the United States Sen
atorshlp a direct Issue In the nominations
for the Senate this summer. Of these
twenty the new Senator to be chosen In
Richmond city will be one. his district
being tho fortieth. Of oourfe, realizing
the possibility of the abolition or amend?
ment of the party plan of primary, or
Its supersession altogether by the pro?
posed legalized primary choosing dele?
gates to a nominating convention, no as?
pirant to.succeed Senator Martin Is go
lnir to take any chances, but each one
will seek to secure the nomination of men
fnvornblo to his candidacy for tho Federal
Senate. These conditions may serve to
make the campaign this fall a very llvoly
one Indeed. No one knows what changes
may occur before the 1st of January,
1908,
Epworth League Meeting.
To-night at the Clay-Street Church nil
of tho Epworth Leagues of Richmond and
vicinity will unite In what promises to
be the most. Interesting League meeting
ever held In this city.
The meeting will ho an Epworth League
consecration and testimony service simi?
lar to thoso conducted at the recent con
fnrenf-o at Danville, which were so much
enloyed by nil present.
While this win be a Union League meet?
ing, still all who aro Interested In young
people's work and the public genorally
are cordially Invited to attend.
Rain Broke Up Snles.
The rain broke up real estate sales
yesterday nfternoon. A number of de?
sirable pieces of property were to ho
ottered.
Messrs. C. L. & ?. L. Denoon have sold
the three dwellings-??*?, 309 and 811 East

The price was .7,000 cash.
