About midday, ti rumor that the Secrt
tary 61' the Treasury had resigned was
circulated-and as it was accompanietL by
a vigorous and apparently concerted sailing
movement In tlie market it served to un
settle speculative sentiment. Technical
trading circunn-tances were in some cases
similarly effective, as the selling it cer
tain stocks, notably of Manhattan and
BurlliigtGii, was o'r a character tliat rather
puzzled me room traders, nils was par
ticularly true of Burlington, which broke
sharply upon the publication or its No

as a whole was very irtegular.
Western Union and Tobacco were very
strong. The grangers weie all heavy.
Sugar, which wasamong the active stocks,
as usual, showed the irregularity of rnove

for money was satisfied, low-er rates were

The market was unchanged in character
yesterday. There was the same lack of
serious outside interest that has character
ized it for so long tliat people have al
most forgotten when there ,vas any real
buying. And there was the .same clique
manipulation in Manhattan and Metropol
itan, with the corresponding variable activ
ity on the pait of the professionals.
It may be .said, in a general way, that
the entire interest of the traders was
in the two New York city railroads. rii.;y
continued their upward course with the
clique behind them, and the contin n
stones that Tammany is to he favorable
to lliem. People said that with the ind ?r
giound tnpid transit scheme practically
shelved lor an indefinite time, t'jere is
nothing to keep the stocks of these two
companies from soaring. When nearly all
the small people are echoing one song in
this fashion it is time to look ojt for
trouble. Ladenburg, Thalmau & Co. ad
vise not to buy these stocks. It Is the
very strong opinion of others tliat there
will be a reaction today. The movement
has gone too far in one direction witlio.it
a break to be healthy.
Meanwhile the prices of the other stocks
of the liht nearly all declined fractionally
yesterday. If the decline in Manhattan and
Metropolitan (.omen today the remainder of
the market, which has been held up by this
manipulation, will also tumble. The bears
arc confident that prices will be lo.ver en
Friday than they were yesterday, po.;slb!y
bythrceot four points. This probaMj would
not surprise even the ostensibly mest ramp
pant bulls, either.
The rtory of Mr. Gage's resignation. a
told in The Times yesterday. Is undoubtedly
the correct one. The rumor or tt'e resig
nation wasupread in tre street yesterday,
but had little effect.
Burlirgton dragged somewhat yesterday

NOT FOR EVERYTHING
But if you have weak kidneys, bladder
trouble or distressing kidney complaint,
then Swamp-Koot will prove lo be just
the remedy you need. Too frequent de
Sire to urinate, scanty supply, pain or dull
ache in the back is convincing evidence
that your kidneys and bladder need doctor
ing. There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Root, tlie great kidney remedy, fulfills
every wish in relieving pain in the back,
kidneys, liver, bladder and every part of
the urinary passage. It corrects inability
to hold urine and scalding pain in passing
it, or bad effects following use of liquor,
wine or beer, and overcomes that un
pleasant necessity of being compelled to
get up many times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Koot is soon realized, It
stands tlie highest for its wonderful cures
of tlie most distressing cases. If you need
a medicine you should have the best. Sold
by druggists, price fifty cents and one
.dollar. You may have a sample bottle and
pamphlet both sent free by mall. Mention
The Morning Times and send your add ie.-s
to Dr. Kilmer & Co., Bingham con, . V.
