The bulls consoled themselves at the
filghtful dullness yesterday with the sug
gestion that the matket was waiting for
the President a message. The fact of the
.matter is that very little Interest is mani
fested among the larger speculators. For
I a long time it has been the same way.

A. P. TENEY,
During two or thrt-e days of the .past week
there was a flight broadening and strength
cuing of the raniket, and the bulls were
sure that the great push Jforward had
begun, and thai there would be mo more
dullness. It was .11 spasmodic effect, 'fe
was shown veiy conclusively by yesterdays
The Tact of the mutter 1" probably that
the President's message lias already had
its effect largely. The two good day
this week may be attributed safely to dis
counting what are uppoed to be its
peaceful stateiiienti.. a'.hore are several
careful observers qf tliejiuurket who would
not be surprised if uKJces ware 10 sag off
rapidly tornorroava):ter;toon Meanwhile.,! or
the last two days, theiuarket, what there
was of it, drifted akmg under the uncer
tain Influence nt trailing sentiment. The
day' bush.esb left prices about where they
were at the Ripening.
What will point- after the fint specula
tive move on the opening of Congress is a
mutterfor largtjssjrmise. The idea Is very
strong that ttieeejviiil be nothing bellicose
in the ir.e.-sage,aifd Wall strjdt is hugging
to itself the beiel that congress will let
the present, as rfJic President will suggest.
TJih belief wigl probably need Jevision.

The cotton goods trade is witnessing the
lowest prices on record.
Tlie earnings oCGanaila Pacific for the
ifourth week of Jov eulbsr increased .$192,-
000. Wheeling and Lake .Erie's earnings
'lor tlie same period increased 316,575.
There is very little on the surface to
indicate anything with regard to Sugar's
immediate future, but I have received In
formation that seems well founded that
there is to be a .further movement upward
in-the taubt stock wltum a few days. There
isigood buying armo-ient, and there is pretty
good evidence that the insiders are acquir
ing -the floating stock. There may be a
small duel me tomorrow after the receipt of
tlie- President's-anes'ige iC the general
market goes tLat' way.
Dow, Jones & Co. say of Mauliattan:
'Ever since tlc Croker party iias been
making its headquarters at Lakewood,
points have baen coming regarding im
portant development in Manhattan. Lake
wood is the iJorijUj also, of George Gould,
president of the "Manhattan Company. U"ie
Crokei naity Js understood to have been
very successfdl in its deal in Metropolitan
Traction, and It has been comparatively
easy tlie'efore to get a following in Man
hattan. The story isthat Manhattan Is to
be given important privileges for exten
bion of its lines."
"Western Union wllhperhaps have a small
ribe ibetween now und tlie declaration cf
the dividend on Wednesday.
The grangers' earnings are bo good tLat
according to all bull Ideas there should be
large advances In them all this winter.
Mr. lleniy Clews has this to say in Ws
weekly letter on the prospects in Congress.
"As the opening of Congress nenrs, it
becomeE more evident that we are likely
to have a business-like session, with the
sensaliunal factionaries held m -restraint
and with a preponderating regard for
policies and measures calculated to en
courage confidence among the business in
terests. Among tlie things width are now
considered assured are the support of
tire President's pacific policy uu the Cuban
question; a fair chance for the adoption
or a good bankiuptcy law; an earnest
attempt to erf cct some real improvenitnts
in the condition of tbe currency, tho lgh
possibly not all that some may t esire;
and an effort to afford some equitable
adjustment of the railroad questions. The
marked public-neglect of the silver agi
tation also warrants the hope that that
tissue will Influence 'Congressional cction
Hess than has been generally feared. The
ifeeling in Washington among the nrriv
ling 'Congressmen is "very confident as to
