Barring a slight weakness at the cloe
the small Improvement in the tone of th
block market continued yesterday, though
there was no change in its intense dullness
and in its entire controlby the professionals.
The news, while not striking or important
in any way, was favorable rather than
unfavorable to the markt yesterday.
There was no Selling pressure. More or
lebs attention was paid to the generally
good character of the gross railroad earn
ings for the second week'of November aud
more or less talk was made of the ex
pectation of excellent net cart-ings for
October, which a number of roads will
publish next week. Cuban news is well
liked by the street. On the whole it
would seem probable that there may be
two or three points advance next week,
with perhaps a small reaction today be
tween times. No large advance should be
expected, according to the unprejudiced
critics of the market. There is no sign
that the large buyers, if there be any,
are ready to act as yet.
Sugar continued its advance on buying
from this city, and more rumors that
the Butch sugar decision will be favorable.
In the afternoon, however. It went off a
little on the news that the decision will
not be rendered for two weeks. Sugar
will very likely have a little drop today
but next week should mark its further ad
vance. Some people are predicting 135.
The earnings of the Southern Railway
for the second week of November in
creased $31,000. St. Louis and Sante
Fe, for the same period, increased .-jJ7,000.
Texas Pacificiucreased 2,514. Louisville
and Nashville decreased $4,000.
Dow. Jones &-Co. say of Pacific Mail:
"The declaration of a 1 per cent divi
dend by Pacific Mail is looked upon by
the street as very coups native action. Wo
understand that there has been considerable
pressure upon Mr. Huntington to declare
a larger amount, but he thought that 1
per cent was sufficient in view of the
needs of the company in the matter of
enlarging its capacity. We understand
that the directors have practically decided
to go ahead and build two new steamers,
one or them of 10,000 tons capacity. This
has been in contemplation for a long time,
but, for one reason and another action
upon it has been delayed."
Insiders are bullish in Rock Island, and
the New York Times says there is good
buying by them. Insiders are also bulling
Mr. Hibbard, Mr. Liudblom's New York
manager, says that Louisville aud Nash
ville is a good purchase. The decline of.
tills stock during the yellow fever trouble
should bo regained, certainly.
Town Topics says that Western Union
will not go down, aud will probably go
up on Its next move. But the Town Topics
people are always bullish in Western Unn.n.
Bradstreet'B "weekly review of trade will
say today: There is a moderate improve
ment in staple prices, and in distribu
tion of woolen goods, shoes, hats, and hard
ware, iu the region tributary to Chicago,
St. Louis, Kansas City, and Omaha. In
Soufj Carolina, Tennessee, and Louisiana
Jobbers report a moderate revial in de
mand from interior merchants, which
represents the business delayed by. yel
low fever quarantines. Trade reports from
Georgia and Texas are quite irregular.
Rome cotton planters are compelled to

made earlier in the season.
