by. cloudy weather and rains. "Lows" usually
flret appear on the Washington coast. When
the pressure is high in the Interior and low

NEW TORK. Jan. IS.— stock market was i
subjected to a rather drastic liquidation of
speculative holdings to-day In continuation of
the movement of yesterday. The selling was ,
due to a feeling that it was safer to take
profits at the present level than to retain I
holdings over Sunday. The situation at Ha
vana was the motive of the selling. There is
no assurance felt that there mi.; not be a sud- '
den development of a dangerous situation there
which would necessitate the Immediate meas
ures by the United States naval forces to pro
tect the Interests of American residents in Ha
vana. Reports on this score were somewhat
aggravated by the persistent selling of houses
with Washington connections. This was
taken to reflect a feeling of apprehension in
official circles. Of course the professional |
traders were ready to turn sellers without ,
further inducement on the general principle ;
that 'prices so down much more easily an.l
quietly than they go p. The bear attack
was vigorous and effective and margins being
wiped out In many case* holdings were thrown
over to save loss* - thus adding to the weak
en of short lines put out earlier Indicated the |
bear selling. Nearly every active stock on the ,
list was at one time a point or over below last
night's close. To-day's and yesterday's re
actions in the stock market put an end to a
period of strength an.l activity earlier in the
week which was regarded as giving good
promis-e of the usually expected old January
boom in prices. Only those stock* which
peered extreme advances early In the week
have thing leu to show for it. the general
level of th- market being decidedly lower than
at last Saturday's close. The llrmness with
! whit h the mark' withstood the effect of the
. first news of the Havana rioting of Thursday
led to the hope in the minus of the bulls
that the power for evil of the Cuban question
: had been tested to the full. But the mar- ;
ket was sustained on Thursday only by the j
striking strength displayed by the Vandw
bllts. New York Central and Lake Shore ris
i ing about four points each on reports that new
plans were In contemplation for operations
looking to reduced cost and increased dividends ■
on the stocks. The amount of the trading on
a practical stationary market <>n Thursday
might have served .is a warning of what would
have happened had the sustaining force been j
I withdrawn. It was soon an obvious fact that
heavy realising was In prog-re— all the Wees
side by side with the active strength <>: special
! slock*. The special points ot vantage which
i the strength of the market held early In the
j week were Northern Pacific stocks and Union
Pacific and Its various affiliated and connect
ing lines, the source of strength being the
assurance of the continuance of Union Pacific's
old outlet to the Pacific Coast. Northern Pa
cilic and the Union Pavlflc group also enjoyed
the benefit of anticipations or a large Klon
dike business in the spring. Another source .it
strength to Northern Pacific was the decision
of the Interstate Commerce committee to con
tinue the suspension of the long and short
haul clause in cases where rales Were i:. com
petition with Canadian lines.
Sugar Was persistently weak. Its decline
I has been attributed to the declared purposes of
the directors to retain the surplus for con
; tlnpency, and professional traders have taken
! a gloomy but uniform view of what these con
| tingencles might be. The pendency of the
I Hawaiian annexation treaty In the Senate is
i unfavorable to Sugar, as annexation would
! allow Hawaiian refined sugar to come in free.
| The industrial list generally has been heavy
! during the week. A feature has been the large
I buying for investment account of gilt-edged
] stocks. To-day's bank statement indicates
j that the expected replenishment of the money
market has been accomplished, and insignifi
cant weakening of foreign exchange indicates
that the seasonable outgo of gold
is likely not to occur on account
of . the heavy trade balance in our
j favor. The item of loan expansion does not
| indicate a very active demand for money, but
In the last few days offerings of commercial
I paper were reported to be in large volume
Bidding for choice grades has also been suffi
ciently active to affect a lowering of rates.
, The market for railway bonds has been very
active all week and record prices have been
; reached for many high graOe Issues. The Is
sues of the Union Pacific group have been
; conspicuous and strong, showing advances
ranging up to 6 points. Seattle. Lake Shore
and Eastern firsts trust receipts rose at one
time -" per cent, but lost a part of the gain.

I CHICAGO, Jan. Wheat was surprisingly
, strong when contrasted with the weak feeling
that prevailed at }he close yesterday. First
transactions In May were at from 90%$}90>&c.
I against 9O@9QV4c the previous afternoon, and
in about half an hour It was able to be sold
; or a second or two at >\ Calls for tike
day had been sold at M^fcC, but It was said
most of these privileges had been bought up
by people who were short as a safeguard
against the possible eccentricities of an er
ratic market. The Liverpool market closed
from %i\ to %d higher than It did yesterday.
This was somewhat of a surprise to traders,
many of whom had sold short yesterday in
anticipation of a decline here to-day, and
caused considerable covering. Liverpool re
ported spot wheat wen 1 , and 2d lower for Cali
fornia, with sellers of Argentine wheat at 3d
per quarter lower than it was offered Friday.
The closing cables showed some recovery from
the previous day's heavy decline, and that
j tended to strengthen the hands of the bulls.
I Paris showed a rise of 60 centimes in January
! flour and 20 centimes In March-June. Bus!
' ness was at no time very heavy. While trad
ing still continues to be done chiefly for May
I delivery, there is a general disposition to work
! clear of it and transfer speculative dealing's
i into July, the proportion of trade in which Is
I growing daily. After the early advance In May
to 90fiC the offerings somewhat exceeded the
I demand, and the price sagged to between 90V*
i and 90^ic, but I it good support at that and
closed SO'ic bid.
! Business in corn was exceptionally dull, and
! merely of a scalping character. May closed
, He lower.
Of.ts were duller. If possible, than corn. May
dosed a shade lower.
Provisions were dull and easier. At the clos*
May pork was .",i lower and May lard and

NEW YORK. Jan. 15.— The Financier earn:
The New York banks have made a new record
In the matter of loan*, the total of $810 992 600
at the close of the week being: the highest ever
reported. Dep sits also are above any figure
jsly made. Turing the first tWi
of the present year the gain In deposits has
b?en ri6,600,000, while I'uns have expanded only
• . 00. In view of this fact the eaae in
money rates does not apt ear strange, arkl if
the banks- cont<r.ue to gain Jrom the Interior
.v.-r <tu< taflons will follow.
The wlthdra mt deposits, how
ever, may steady the situation, The banks
irained during the pe*t week J.*.2ii9.30j in cash.
?. . - • • < lold is now
coming in this direction from Canada, the past
ten days' rceipts having approximated $«:.(>.
000. The increase In deposits was $C,"20.400.
while loans are unly J1.21j.700 lieavier. The ex
reserve in consequence expanded $3,074,000
and stands at $25,968,771 This is only half
as large as reported one year ajro. but in view
of the fact that remittances are now becom
ln>? larger, an Increase Bay be expected from
week to week. In the changes made during
the week the operations seem to have been con
• th«> iarK-r Imnks. Th>- deposits of the
Hr.nover, the National Park and the National
City Hanks are i7.r«K'.ooo larger than the pre
vln'.is week. Whether this Is due to special
tlons carir.ot be definitely stated, but it
shows that the r^malnirg banks have less
in lmnd than at the close of January
S. The factors that led to the g-aln in cash,
however, are rather well defined and they may

A New York commercial paper of the 10th
«ays: The steady advance in hides and the
lightness of the supply give MM ground to
th« predictions of importers that prices this

world Is unprecedented!? small. The stock of
dry hides in Oral hands here aggregates 13.000.
It consists of 1.i.000 Orinocns. 2300 Cordova.

ington, Seattle and Coo* Hay shipments have
all been taken out of first hands into the re
taller? yards. Our protracted spell of frosty
weather baa largely Increased the consump
tion for house purposes. If our Coast coal pro
ducers should see tit to take advantage of the
preeent condition of our fuel market they couid
very readily mark up prices, and housekeepers
would be the sufferers. Steam coals arc in fair
supply, and no change of values new! be feared
for the present, as large consumers are so
licited to make contracts nt current rates, mi.i
do not appear to be very anxious buyers. if
■we do not have some general rains shortly, to
induce grain carriers to seek this port for the
next season's crop, there will assuredly be a
stiffening in coal freights. The total amount
of foreign and Eastern coals that can possibly
arrive h«-re in the next sixty days from all
sources, foots up less than 47.000 tons: as our
ronsumption within that time will be fully
210.CC0 tons. It can readily be computed what
n draft we will make on the output of Seattle
and British Columbia. With four firms con
trolling 90 per cent of our local fuel supplies
from' • mi. Coast, It can be seen how easily a
coalition could be effected to establish uniform
VT.lues."-' ■* i-_i -_ " •

There once lived a man and his wife
at St. Ann's, the only town of the isl
and of Alderney, and the pair were
not on the best of terms.
One fine morning the man was miss
ing and nothing was heard of him for
a fortnight. The wife pretended to be
in great distress, so much so that when
his body was found in a small bay sur
rounded by rocks at low water no one
liked to tell her — more especially as the
finding was accompanied with what
they thought would shock her dread
fully, for when the poor fellow was
pulled out of the water a great quan
tity of small conger eels fell on the
sands from his body; the fact was, he
was full of them!
At last a friend undertook to break
the intelligence and receive the widow's
This he did, not omitting to men
tlon the eels.
The story told, he asked what were
her wishes, as he was anxious, to- ;
gether with the rest of her friends, to
obey her orders.
The widow removed her handker
chief from her eyes and murmured out
in the Channel Island Anglo-Norman
"Send home the eels and set him
again; I am very fond of eels!" — Spare
