A glimpse of the authors' names will be a

The scenes are the pen sketches ot that fa

tion of Bay Stale Gas.
The Grangers Continue to He Influ
enced Favorably by Encouraging
Statements of St. Paul.
New York,. Nov. 17. Manipulation of the
stock' of the Bay State Gas Company, ot
Delaware, was a feature ot the market
today, us well as for some time past. Wall
strict generally lias fought shy of this
specialtj. The insiders have been left to a
great extent to play their game aloud and
the public has not bitten at the baits that
have been offered. Under the circumstances
it is not surprising that the price of the
stock, which was marked up when the
stock-jobbfnglnterests hadsecured the pub
lication ot a yam purporting to tell of
magnTficeut impending deals with other
gas companies, should have been able to
retain much of its apparent strength in
the face cf wholesale denials of the truth
of the yarn.
Outside r r this incident the stock market
dialings today presented little ot interest.
The utmost stagnation was the feature
the greater part or the day. Influenced by
lower London quotations, a few stocks
opened fractionally lower, but the under
tone of the market eontttuied strong and
there wr.-- an immediate rally.
Rock Island opened at an advance of
1-4 point and later advanced further.
Sugar refining and Jersey Central also
showed deiided strength In tlie early trad
ing. The grangers continued to be influ
enced favorably by the encouraging state
ments of railroad earnings oT the St. Pai!
system Tor the second week of November.
Announcement was made at noon that
the Burlington directors had declared a
quarterly dividend of 1 per cent- Few
had anticipated an increase In the divi
dn d rate at this time.
Prets dispatches this afternoon said that
the Sultan of Turkey Would give full
satisfaction to Austria upon the points In
dispute between that country and the
Porte and this may have an effect upon
the London market. In the final dealings
the market continued to evince a heavier
tone, with quotations generally under

The market had little of encouragement
in it yesterday. It was intensely dull and
-without marked features. The control or
the professionals was again clearly mani
fest. It is also to be pointed out, howr
ever, that there was considerable resistance
lo selling pressure and that there was
some little commission buying. In the last
hour there were slight concessions. Tlie
conclusion that is drawn by many is that
there will be no decline of any moment
and that before many days there should
be good advances. The conservative do
not expert much advance and certainly
no.thing like a boom.
The exchange maiket was dull and
heavier, with demand sterling at around
4S5 1-2. London was no factor in the
stock market. It sold a little stock, but not
enough to influence the trading in any wi-.
Houseman was said to be distributing
buying orders yesterday quite liberally.
This is nearly always a good sign of tem
porary advances at least. Mr. Houseman
Is a very shrewd anda very powerful n.an.
Mr. Cartey Is less hopeful now than for
many months pist. He is disappointed
and unable to talk bull with any glow and
vim- One might almost hope for good
times on this, he has been such a good
rampant bull during all the hard times of
the past three months. Mr. Carley says:
"Nobody who litis- money and courage
is selling stocks. There is so little actual
Mock on the floor or the Exchange that,
when the room traders try to buy, they do
not rind anything Tor sale. After they
have bid them up against each other a
couple of poiuts, and turned around to sell
them they find nobody to buy them. Then
they try to sell against each other, and
put the prices down again. The market
will ci ntinue in these superficial waves,
and there will be no real liquidation unless
some real war scare should create a level
low enough to bring out more long stock.
This is nut probable. There will be no
sustained advance until the big leaders
-whip up the market for some time. The
publicdocsnot comein until the market has
advanced. The big leaders "will do this
fcs scon as they think the public will trke
a bright view of the political skies.
Burlington and Sugar were the most
active features of the market yesterday,
though chey were dull. Tlie Eiirtingtou
dividend was declarpd,. as exoected, at
the regular rate of 1 per cent for the
Cor. Seventh and D Sts.
quarter, with no Increase. Trader made
an efrort, tu sell the stock down, on the
theory that an increase or at least one
quarter had been expected. No long
ttock came out, however, and there was
so much resistance to their efforts that
they abandoned the attempt.
as fo Sugar, the best information that
can be obtained here is that the extra divi
dend will be imposed upon sugars rrom
the Netherlands. Sugar was heavy in the
morning yesterday, but showed indications
later in the day that it would be strong
and lvioyant ir the Treasury decision came
out soiui in' favor of the trust. There Is
every reason to believe that tuc Sugarso'd
out on the news of Mr. Ha vcmeyer's illness
Is being bought back again.
Pan HamUc's surplus, according to the
October statement, In $60,596. Pan
Handle is an interesting stock. People are
paying considerable attention to it of late.
There arjj indications that there will be
advances in the stock Iu the near future.
It is said I hat there Ins been good buy
ing in Northwest at the present low figures.

secoud week of November increased Si 15

There Is good authority for ttw statement
that the short interest amounts to fully
