JKEW YORK, Dec 28. The influence of
ifcehief sabjectfi engaging attention today
confltctine. and ia consequence the
atick raaricet was aomewhat unsettled and
was altogether trfeeular.
"flie advancing London and Continental
dtooont rates indicated the probability of a
iWtber rise in the Bank of England's his
osaat rate tomorrow, and emphasised the
prtfaanility of further large exportations of
goM at the close of the week.
On the other hand, the receipts of cur
rency from the interior, as a reflection of
the rise in Ness York exchange at various
Western points and the satisfactory re"
ajMmae to the Treasury's offer to divert the
Government's revenues, were looked for
ward to as likel to offset the foreign drain.
In respect to the money market it should
a added, furthermore, that the position
taken by the associated batiks has definite
ly removed the apprehension that anj such
nosey market conditions as existed on
-Monday will be repeated
Aside from the local and foreign none- .
tar conditions there mas little in the daj's ;
Btatatiou of general importance to engage
detention The London market was de
creased in the early part of the daj but It
sahaoonenUy scored a general recover.
The arbitrage houses however, sold quite
heavil in this market
In regard to particular movements in
special stocks, the most important were
those recorded in New York Central and
Brooklyn Rapid Transit The somewhat
unexpected advance in the rate of dividend
on the first named was attended bj a sharp
advance in the stock, which, while not
foil maintained, was at least a most en
Securitv holders at large bear and see so
much nowadays about heavj corporation
earnings that it is particular! gratifying
when corporate managements recognise
that under proper circumstances the stock
holders are entitled to some material evi
dences of the prosperit of the properties
in which they are interested
The eMreroely severe decline in Brook
lyn Rapid Transit was not directly ac
counted for in the wa of new .levelop
ments affecting that propert. and it was
probabl mainly owing, as was commonly
reported, to the extensive and probably
urgent liquidation of some particularly
heaw stockholder of the company. The
decline in Brooklyn Rapid Transit, to
gether with the attendant rumors, was
among tbe most effective influences of the
daj and it served to check very thoroughly
the earlier tendency toward improvement
that the market had shown.
Persons presumably familiar with the
affairs of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit
Company wad of the largest interests in it
made emphatic denials of the persistent!
circulated rumors regarding the financial
troubles of the company or of parties
largely interested in it. Notwithstanding
these denials, boa ever, and the favorable
representations concerning the company's
prospects the stock continued under severe
pressure and showed little rallying power.
Jm noted, the break in this instance
served eifeetually to destroy the improv
ing: tendency that had been apparent else
where in the market.
It was creditably reported in connection
with the severe decline in Brooklyn Rapid
Transit that certain loans made bv the
Itoeai trust company which suspended Mon
day were being liquidated.
At"3$ll events the market showed in
various quarters that the improvement
which set in vesterday with the change
in the monetary situation was being util
ised to clean up come remaining weak
spats in tiie situation, and it goes without
Wiring that the status of the whole market
will be improved when the process shall
Ihase been completed

the Increase of the dividend on New York

the former. The story that Brooklyn is
to ko into the bands of a recener is an
example of the latter. It is not true, of
viir Th ttnnminopmmit of the Central
direct ore that the stock is to be hereafter
a 5 per cent stock had been expected, but
it came at this time, nevertheless, as a sur
prise to the street. It was none the less
w elcome, of course The company h is been
earning 6 per cent during the last vear, (
and its present earnings are at the rate i
of S per cent, it is said They are the best i
made by the com pa in at an time in its
history Central's lecord as a dividend
payer has been one of the best The rate
has not been high, but the dividend has
always been paid From 18&7 to 188 4
per cent was the rate, in 1SH) and 1S91 the
rate was i 1.-2 ier cent, in 1S92 there was
a dividend of 5 1-4 per cent, then for two
years 5 per cent, and since that time 1 t
ner cent h'as been the regular distribution i
The ad ra nre to 5 per cent is as good an
indication of the belief of the Vauderbilts
in continued and even greater prosperit,
as anyone -need desire Higher prices for
this stock and also on the Union Pacitic

in which investors have implicit faith, and

In connection with the purchase of the
j Pittsbuig and Eastern bv the New York

build important and profitable extensions
I to their coal lands in northern and west
The trouble in Brookljn Rapid Transit
was violent and apparently without an
sufficient cause A number of rumors were
afloat all da regarding the stock, and it
was said early in the morning that it would
be attacked, but probably few of the bears
on the stock expected any huch realization
of their hopes as came late in the after
noon The low price reached was 61, sev
eral points bolow the low on Mondaj and
75 points below the highest price of last
spring. One of the stones was to the
effect that an application has been made
for a receiver for the propert It was
promptly defied b ihe officers of the com.
pany, aad'Teceived little attention in the
street. Wnether storv was that the Brook
lyn poo!, with 75,000 share-, waa selling
out with losses of millions of dollars This
also was denied and seems to have no
foundation The best explanation of the
weakness offered was that a new bear had
entered the field with a desire to break the
stock down to 10
This little gentleman has been one of the
tipsters of the Consolidated Stock Ex
change, and during the recent break his
bearish views have given, him heavy follow
ing among the small traders. The thing
has been most profitable to bun and It is
said that he has taken out of the market
a million dollars or more Flushed with
his victory he is understood to have de
cided that the Consolidated was too small
a field and to have put his entire million
Into the attack on Brookln Rapid Transit
He may win in this game, too, and his
success yesterday was excellent, but it
seems highl probable that he and his new
found wealth will soon part eompan.
Brccklyn, however, is not an attractive
stock at the moment, even after its v lolent
The break in Brook! n carries with it
tumbles in the other so-called Flower
stocks, Federal Steel common and pre
feired and Chicago Gas Federal Steel
common declined to 41 1-2, onl a point or
two higher than the low price of Monday
It rallied quickl, however, and closed at
44 3-4 The preferred sold ev" dividend S
per cent, and, although it declined with
the common ended the day with a part of
the dividend regained Chicago Gas went
as low at 92 1-2, after ralling above 97
It closed vesterdav at 9o 1-2. Atchison
preferred knd Rock Island were prevented
from advancing by the weakness in these
securities but the did not decline much
This entire group seems likel to be irreg
ular for a few days, but the stocks will all
be bought en the declines for much higher
prices in the near fnture.

Dr Itedwell relates an interesting ac
count of what he considers a remarkable
case of acute stomach trouble and chronic
dyspepsia b the use of the new discover,
Stuart's Dspepsia Tablets.
He savs "The patient was a man who
had suffered to m knowledge ear with
dyspepsia. Ever thing he ate seemed to
sour and create gases in the stomach He
had pains like rheumatism in the back,
shoulder blades and limbs, fullness and
distress after eating, poor appetite and
loss of ilesh the heart became affected,
causing palpitation and sleeplessness at
"I give him powerful nerve tonics r.nd
blood remedies but to no purpose. As an
cxpeiiment I finally bought a 50 cent pack
age of Stuart's Dspepsia Tablets at a
drug stoic and gave them to him Alniost
immediate relief wa& given and after ho
had used four boxes he was to all appear
ances fully cured.
' Theie was no more acidit or sour,
waterj risings, no bloating after meals,
the appetite was vigorous and he lai
gained between 10 and 12 pounds in weight
of solid, healthy flesh
'Although Stuarts Dspepsia Tablets aro
advertised and sold in drug stores, et I
consider them a most valuable addition to
an phsic!an's lino of remedies, as they
are perfcctl harmless and can be given
to children or invalids or in any condition
of the stomach with perfect safety, being
harmless and containing nothing but fruit
and vegetable essences, pure pepsin and
"Without any question they are the
Eafest most effective cure for indigestion,
biliousness, constipation and all derange
ments of the stomach, however slight or
severe " I

considerable pressure directed against in
dividual stocks, but there was an absence
of the panick conditions that had pre
vailed since Monda Substantial support
was accorded to all the leading stocks on
first call Weakness, however, developed
in some parts of the list on second call,
due to the circulation of disquieting re

gave way to 81, a decline of 51-2 points

Other losses in the trust group ranged from
1 to 3 points.
United Railwas income bonds also re

An Effort to Combine 'I n n Iniiriiiioe
An effort Is being made to contolidate the
Washington Title Insurance Companj with
the District Title Companj Stockholders
of the former concern have been requested
to exchange their stock for that of the Co
lumbia Agencj and Trust Compauv which
was formed recentlj bj V J Newton and
others for the purpose of holding the stock
of the District Companj, nntl anj- other
concerns which might be purthesed If
the plan is successful the ' holding" com
pany, after securing the majoritj of the
stock of both concerns will operate them
as one It is said that the price at which
the Washington Companj stock is to be ex
changed for that of the hold'tig companj is
5 1-2 per share The market price of the
stock is $2 GO bid
Another plan said to be under considera
tion bj Mr Newton and his friends of the
Columbia Agencj and Trust Companj' is
that of obtaining control of the Law vers'
