NEW YORK Jan 27 The dealings in
Mocks today were the smallest in more
than a j car and the changes in prlccu were
unimportant save In one or to Instances
The tendency of FtocKs however was to
ward a lower level
An extremely favorable hank statement
was without effect and the market closed
dull and heavy The feature of the state
ment Mas an Increase of J8SH300 In cash
bringing the cash holdings of the banks up
to 224409D00 as against K54GI400 a
J ear ago By far the greater part of the
sain In cash was from the Interior move
ment of money shoving that funds are
flowing to this centre in undiminished
volume
Money is becoming easier throughout the
country and an abundance of funds for
speculative purposes is promised for an In
definite period Not much money is now
tied up In the crops and commercial needs
are considerably reduced An expansion of
7513600 in loans was accounted for chiefly
by the enlarged Iranactlons in bonds
An Increase of J15OOS000 in deposits was
from the cash received from out of town
Government receipts and ci edits against
loans The surplus reserve was increased
Jo092300 to 2927775 as against J39
23202u at this time last j car
In ordinary circumstances a bank state
ment of such a character as todays would
have stimulated trading and Improved
values The fact that little attention was
paid to it proved that speculators were de
terred by special considerations from ac
tive operations in stocks For one thing
there was a general disposition to wait for
more decisive events In South Africa Since
the news of the abandonment of Spion Kop
by the British the relaxation In funds in
London and other European centres has
ceased and uncertainty as to the future of
rates exists The tone of sterling exchange
Is distinctly firmer but there is nothing
as yet to lead to the expectation of a re
sumption of gold exports
The prolongation of the war may result
In a call by London on New York for more
gold but should gold be called for it could
easily be spared
There were rather large offerings of
Third Avenue Itallroad -stock today with
a sharp fall In the price It was denied
that there was any hitch In the arrange
ments for the readjustment of the finances
of the company The needs of the com
iianv are to be determined by an expert ex
amination of Its affairs which is now in
progress and which it Is stated will be
completed in about a week
The report of the Chicago Milwaukee
and St Taul Hallway for December waa
issued and showed an Increase of 391121 in
gross earnings but a decrease of J1G8S35
In net earnings Coupled with the belief
that the report of the Burlington and
Qulncy road for the same month would not
be a favorable exhibit the effect on the
so called granger stocks was somewhat de
pressing The reason for the decreased net
return by the St Paul was known to be
large expenditures by the company on the
road which were charged to operations
American Steel and Wire stock was strong

idend on Monday

Iluslncss in the New York stock market
during the month of January has been a
third what It was in the came period last
year During the week Just ended the total
number o thare traded in on the ex
change was less than the business on any
one of several single days a jear ago
Speculation has vrr nearly come to a
sUndtlll The public Is doing nothing
-whatever and the cliques almort nothing
The room traders fiom day to day make
little scalping transactions causing frac
tional advances and declines in pi Ices and
this with small buying and veiling for
account as the South African war gos
favorably or the reverse to the British
constitutes the entire business of the ex
change The past week has been an event
ful one In news that would usuallj have
caused activity and important fluclustlors
In prices Nearly every day has bad Its
happening that might be expected lo cause
quick buving or Felling of stock Appar
ently the public and the large interesls
might all have crastd thread the newspa
pers
It was the fashion a weeK ago to suggen
that the market was waiting for decisive
news from the scat of war It Is now seen
that even this kind of newjC has no effect
The Idea of the overwnelmibg impcrtancc
of the war as a factor in the American mar
ket must ho given up The apathy of spec
ulation Is due to some other cause The
week -saw what was at urn believed to be
a 6reat victory for the British Later il
uaw an entire reversal of the first news
Into an even and more Important victory
for the Uoers The taking of Splon Kop
caused much enthusiasm In Ixndon but l
did not cauc a half point advance lu the
price of American securities and It did
not add 60000 shares to the btislm s of the
next session of the exebant When the
Urltish evacuated Spion Kop Instead of
the panic that many looked for the pulte
of th exchange did not quicken a r t
The reduction of the bank of England
discount rate to 4 per cent an event of
much Importance Intrinsically had no il
fecL The brilliant earnings of the rail
ways even where during the third week of
January had no effecL The magnificent
showing of the Atchison company for De
cember was received with indifference
The Brooklyn Rapid Transit election of di
rectors caused no buslnesr Call money
loaning at I to 3 per rent all the week and
another superb bank statement yesterdaj
were all equally Ineffective In Inducing any
buying of securities
11 Is evident that a revision of opinion
must b made by those who have believed
the lethargy of tho market due to the un
certainty In South Africa This factor un-
doubtedly has had some effect when taken
with other causes but It Is nut a chief
factor The public that might buy stocks
at this time hns lost all of its money or
is still hanging to stocks bought at higher
prices too much tied up to buy more The
important Interests the Vandcrbilts the
IlOCnCfcllcrs the svnUicatc wjc thjit are
grauU1 Securing control the railways
of the country are nliiidy h ST sellers
of securities arid Uif imlinuc to buy
conservatively Evoiv day purchases arc
made for them These interests do not
want a boom The know that prices are
certain to advance to a much higher level
during the coming months and they know
also that the worst possibility In the sit
uation is the Immcnsu enthusiasm of tlio
new- people that would eoinu In on an
other boom The market however Is
very strong The Iuiirtjiii people want
another slump In prln cviu less than
they desire a boom Of the two evils
they would undoubtedly choose the boom
The result of these conditions has been a
walling market quite remarkable In Its
duration and puslsttme Trices do not
go up but much more lliey do not go
down The fractional thauges from week
to week have been advances
The bank statement yesterday was
again much better than expected A
heavy Increase In the suiplus reserve car
ries that figure nearly to J30000000 The
cash shows an increase of nearly 9009
000 and the deposits an increase of Jla
000000 11 is not easy to account for the
loan Hera In view of the citreme dullness
of the market The figures of the state

The earnings statements of the week
have been extremely important They are
all In entire harmony with the suggestions
heretofore made In tills column The
weeklv gross earnings lnvc all shown an
Immense increase over t4C figures of last
car The importance of this fact is dou
bled when U Is remembered that the month
of January last jear was one of the best
seen by American railways up to that time
This j cars gross figures are making new
records every day The net earnings state
ments for December havc now begun to
come in As has been pointed out in this
column these figures may be expected to bo
poor as those for November were Prices
of steel coal and wages ceccsbaty ex
penditures evcryw here were Increased
during the jear As the natural result of
this freight rates have been advanced
everywhere sufficient to a little more than
offset the loss but during November and
December the old freight rates were In
force while the cost of materials had ad
vanced to the top notch The professional
pessimists may be expected to draw lurid
pictures of bankruptcy and ruin from the
poor showing yesterday made by St Taul
for December and from the equally poor
figures expected from the Burlington to
morrow It Is not probable but It Is pos
sible that the bears will be able to force
the prices of these securities down In this
wa despite the fact that at the present
time both St Taul and Burlington are do
ing a record business In such an event It
would seem the part of conservatism to buy
stocks Orders for a good many thousands
of shares of the grangers and other first
class securities at prlcts not far below the
close vesterday are In the market
The gross earnings of forty sti railways
for the third week of January were J6
K4153 Of this number forty one show In
creases of iS90C2 and Ave show decreases
of jC30 the total Increase for all lines
beard from thus being 66126 or 143 per
cent The gross earnings of sixty eight
lines for the second week of Jauuarv were
J840S51 Of this number only five showed
decreases in earnings the total decrease
being only J40CO0 The gross Increase on
all the sixty eight lines deducting this
40000 was 1074348 or 14 63 per cent
The gross earnings of the Chesapeake and
Ohio for tho third week Increased 439S4
The increase from July 1 has been 5S2353
The increase In the gross earnings of the
Big Tour for the week was 66753
Tho December gross earnings of the St
Paul Increased only 91121 and the net
earnings for the month decreased 16S133
The December statement of the Burling
ton is expected tomorrow There is every
reason to believe that this statement also
will be a poor one The December recerds
will not all be poor however as Is shown
by the remarkable figures published by
the Atchison company during the week
and a very good Bhowing made by the
Beading company jestcrday Decreases in
net earnings arc expected and will not be
a surprise to anyone The good showings
made will all be bull arguments for the
very gocd reason that the bears have been
suggesting that the era of good statements
ended last October
Tlie meellng of tho stockholders of the
Brooklyn Rapid Transit and the election
of directors was one of the most important
events of the past week The new people
elected are all strong men financially and
conservative market people and business
men generally consider the board as now
constituted the best of evidence that the
Brookyn sjstcm Is not on the down grade
to ruin The stock was very dull all the
week and even after the announcement
of the new directorate on Trlday no In
terest was shown In IL The bears at
tempted to make a drive on the theory that
the good news was out and people would
sell but they met with no success

Talk of a en Altemnt In Secure
Control A Cnninss fir Troxlrn
The coming annual meeting of the stock
holders of the Washington Gas Light Com
pany Is attracting attention to the affairs
of the company and to Gas stock and
there has been much gossip of a more or
less Interesting character floating in the
street during ihe past week us a
consequence Activity and an advancing
price for the stock has added to this In
terest
The meeting will take place on Monday
February 5 Directors will be elected for
the coming year There Is one vacancy to
be filled In the directory and many sur
mises as to who the new man will be arc
heard There Is also Indulgence In spec
ulation over the possibility that a fight
may be made by new people to obtain
control of the company and force the re
tirement of the present management It
Is known that those now In control of the
company are making every effort to aug
ment their strength Proxies have been
gathered in by them vigorously during
the past month or more It Is not be
lieved however that they have any fear
of losing control The rumor is still cur
rent that Mr McLean Intends to retire
from the presidency of the company before
many months aro passed Ii there is any
truth In this rumor It Is suggested that
he may desire simply to be re elected by
a strong majority as an evidence of confi
dence In his management before he gives
up his position
Two gentlemen have been spoken of as
likely to lie elected to fill the vacancy
L Z Lelter and V C Stevens Mr Leltcr
is one of the largest holders of the stock
of the company as he is of several other
local corporations Mr Stevens Is also a
stockholder but he Is chiefly prominent In
the business world as one of the Washing
ton Traction and Electric Company syndi
cate
It Is suggested that while the election of
Mr Letter would be considered an excellent
one It would not be In any way particu
larly significant as indicating any change
of policy on the part of the company or
change of control either The Lelter suit
ngalnst the Metropolitan Hallway is sup
posed to show that Mr Lciter is not In
sympathy with the Washington Traction
and Electric Company and his election by
tho gas company would probably set at
rest all talk of the gas company being ab
sorbed by the big syndicate
Mr Stevens election on thq other band
would cause a vigorous rtncwal of those
rumors It Is known thatLaC the time of
the attempt to purchase the gas company
Mr Stevens held a conslderahlc block of
the stock and controlled more and It has
not been learned since that time that he
has disposed of his holdings The question
If the Washington Traction Company was
the actual bidder for the comnany has
never been settled as far as the public is
concerned but at any rate the general be
lief Is Arm that the two concerns would
have been very closely allied If the sale
had been effected
Gas stock advanced in price yesterday on
the local stock exchange to 54 3 8 The
level recently has been around 53 More
than 500 shares of the stock changed hands
at yesterdays session It could not be
learned for whom the stock was bought
but the advance In price was considered
to be an excellent evidence that the stock
is In demand for election purposes quite as
much as for Investment
PULLMAN COMPANY SETTLES
A lnjnicnt of l00O In IMrrnrd
AViinrtun fur Iont Jewelry
An Interesting case has Just been set
tled In the Supremo Court of the District
of Columbia Last year Mr Edward It
Wharton of York and Newport wlu
was spending Ihe winter months In Wash
ing ton was robbed of several valuable
rings while asleep in a Pullman sleeping
car
Through tils attorneys Messrs Berry
Minor be brought suit on the ground of
negligence against the company for their
value estimated at 1270 The case ha
been set for trial for January 29 but was
dismissed yestenlay the Pullman Company
having paid Mr Wharton 1000 by way of
compromise
