NEW YORK, June 2.-The first effec?

fected to-dav. and that without? mil
Btrlklng development In the news to nffect
valuo.?. On the contrary, there was a
rlemornllzed Plump In a group of securi?
ties which wero i-yrnpatlietlr-illy affected
by Ihe speculative break-down In certain
Canadian market.??. It was the serenity
wllh which this break was rgemded and
It? failure to Induro nny further liquida?
tion In the market which Imnroened ?ho
bears with the advisability of protecting
their position by covering their abort
commitments. During the last hour ot
the trading Iho demand from this source
became somewhat, urgent, and Ht. Paul
and Missouri Pacific wore lift???! more
than two points over last nicht'? Inve?.
Rock Island, Southern Pacific, Atchl?

points over last night In tho late ?leal

trouble have been visible In the Cana?

seemed to have had their Inception In
tho rumored troubles of the Dominion

Telline tendency and put out lome of tha itock
tnoy bad covered on Monday.
Canadian Pacific wa? under pressure from the
opening, ??Id to he directed against weak bull
account? In both Toronto and Montreal. People
In touch -with the mere Important pool ?ay that
Ihe member? ot. it are not concerne?!/and are
roulent lo let Ihe market take-It? eourso. The
news upon the whole ha? boon good, but the
decline haa canned ? good deal of nervoustiesa
Binons foreign holders.
A. C. I*. declined in the early market In s-J-ji?
pathy with the weakness In Rio Tinto In L/3?
don and tbo further drop In the price of tbo
metal there. Tlio Lowlsobn lnterent la ?aid to
be bearish, both on Iho atock and tho metal.

rallied very well. All tbo Grangera Improved,
?nil tbe disposition to cover Bhort?. which had
been somewhat In evidence among tbo more
active professional? on Monday, wa? very rnnrk
rd. London was a fair buyer, and thn Chicago
wire houses look stock In some quantity.
BUYING IN ROCK ISLAND;
The principal buying In Hock Island common
was by Moin tyro <t Marshall, hut Henry Clevres
it Company hnd ? good buying order In the 4
per cent. Intuii? Tb? former wn? taken as rep?

Hi,m tbo market: bas seen for somo time.
RIGAR RALLIED EASILY:
America? Sugnr rallied ennll.r. although the
street look the rf-guler dividen 1 for grained.
There Is some reason to think that people In
tonili with the truo conditions of thn sugar
trade havn been picking up stock recently. It la
doubted, however, If there will bn any serious
move much before the meeting of Congress.
THE SECOND HOUR:
Thn market In the second hour showed very
considerable strength. In spltu of an important
failure lo Toronto. It looked as If there, was
better nrganlicd support, although the early

on theory that tbe wont wae known.
.STANDARD OIL BUYING ST. PAUL:
Tho Standard Oil brokern were huyere nf Bt.

20PPER NOTICEABLY WEAK:
Amalgamated Copper waa noticeably weak on
ihn reduction In the trade price of th? metal
ind tbe heavy selling of Rio Tinto? in London
for Paris account. Trade Interest? bere were
nrit hopeful nf maintaining the price of the
metal at tlin presrnt level, lu view of tbe severo
declluo In London.
There was ou early borrowing demand for
Missouri Pacific, Union Pacific and St. Paul and

Brother Preacher Says He
Got His Overcoat.
DOCTOR HAS CONFESSED
Plead? Guilty to Having Taken the Coat
but Says It was a Mistake.
Matter Has Been Com?
"Is Dr. Hatcher gullty?"
The friends of Dr. Hatcher were sur?
prised and nlarmed yesterday to see at
the head of a long article In a well known
Baptist paper of the South the words
quoted abovo, and there at once arose
the apprehensive feeling; that the brethren
on the outside had'at last caught up
with Dr. Hatcher onttjlefeoteU him In one
of his guilty acts. Perusal of tlio article
served In no way to relieve the distressed
minds of these anxious friends. In fact,
tholr worst fears wore confirmed, for
the paper continued as follows;
"Dr. William B. Hatoher, the univer?
sally admired and beloved, hurriedly, left ;
the convention (Southern Baptist) on Sat?
urday, taking with him my good coat and
leaving his old one.Instead. (The writer
of the article, by ?the'way, Is tho.Rev.
P. T. Hale, D. D? a minister of Owens
boro, Ky., In good Standing.) This woro
an ominous appearafl??s; '.'-' And inn I
not establish Dr. Hatcher's guilt, with ar?
guments many, and as crushlngly cogent
as the ratiocination with which wo some?
times prove the culpability and some?
times Impugn the motives of the breth?
ren and our fellow-mortals? This looks
PURLOINED HIS COAT.
Proceeding, Dr. Hale showed In a col?
umn and a half and more that Dr.
Hatoher had deliberately and wilfully
purloined his coat at the recent meeting
of the Southern iBaptlst Convention. Dr.
Hatoher. says the writer, was nlone In his
room when he packed up, nnel It Is now
recalled that ha packed his grip so full
that he waa unable to close it, and It re?
quired the combined efforts of two men
of valor to fasten it. It Is further re
oal?e? that th? Doctor, In. his abrupt
departure, neglected to shake hands with
his grieved room-mates. *vVhat other
possessions of the brethren the Doctor
carried off oannot yet be determined,
as there were brethren from nearly all
of the originally seceding States who
slept around three sides of that room and
bathed by squads and relays therein.
' The Doctor, It Is alleged and substan?
tially proven, fled precipitately with his
rich booty, and stopped not until he
reached Greenwood. S. C., and further
Investigation reveals tho fact that Dr.
Harry Bagby. of that city, formerly of
Richmond, was a partner In his flight,
and a likely accomplice in the whole
wretched affair. The question has arisen
why the fugitive ventured to stop In
South Carolina. The reason assigned
bears the stamp of great probability. Evi?
dently he believed that Governor Sweeney
would not extradite him, because he Is
an Intimate of Colonel'Hoyt's; while he
knew that Governor Andrew J. Monta?
gue, of A'irglnla, being a Baptist, know?
ing him. and zealous, would cheerfully
co-operate In any.scheme for his removal
In the course of his further remarks
upon this very surprising affair. Dr.
Hule makes mention of a letter he hns
lust received from Dr. Hatcher. In which
the well known minister confesses all,
hut declares It was a mistake. This ex?
cuse the Owensboro minister refuses to
accept, since "it evidently comes after
tho Doctor hnd an opportunity to try on
the coat and tn examine It nt his leisure,
and evidently had discovered that thero
was a patch of extensive area upon the
southern part of tho eastern hemisphere
thereof. . . . Hitherto we have had Im?
plicit faith In the genial Doctor, bul
