NEW YORK. April 24.— Among the many
broken precedents which have been recorded
in the present great Wall street speculation '
must be included the scale and character of
the professional manipulation for purely sen
timental effect on the speculative public at
large. No euch fight against a prevailing
tendency in the market was ever before wit
nessed on the New York Stock Exchange as
that of to-day. Some of the leading operators
in the recent epeculatlon are accredited with
the assertion that there is no amount, of stock
which they will not buy in order to sustain
the market for the protection of their favorite
stocks. • Such statements in Wall street are
always accepted with the allowances due to
assertions palpably made for effect. Yet to
day's market gave evidence of astonishing
boldness and aggressiveness in supporting
prices by the expedient of simply buying
everything that was offered. Prices were also
boldly bid up in spite of the increasing weight
of the selling on the advance. ' The burden of
rupport seemed to grow too heavy 'toward the
latter part of the day. although the market
had been fairly bought to a standstill after
the opening. In the latter part of the day,
however, the bull pool seemed to concentrate
attention more on the stocks which had been
«>lt>ct«»tJ for the most aggressive manipulation
for sustaining effect on prices generally and to
impress the public mind. Union Pacific was
the most conspicuous of these, but the spec
ulation also was very heavy In St. Paul,
Northern Pacific and Southern Pacific, and
Burlington, though not largely dealt in, was
very jealously supported. The total dealings
fn Union Pacific reached an aggregate of 662,
800 shares. As the total Issue of the com
pany's capital amounts - to less than 960,000
pharos of common stock, it is evident that to
day's sales would have been sufficient to
transfer the control of the company had they
represented actual transfer of stock In any
larrr proportion: Add the sales of Monday
and Tuesday with those of to-day, and we
have a total of 971,000 shares, which Is much
more than the total common stock issue. • Yet
no hint is heard from any source :hat Union
Pacific is changing hands. In fact, there was
no fresh news at all to account for to-day's
vioie-nt rise in the stock which reached an ex
treme $%. closing practically at the top. . This
case is typical of the intensely speculative
character of the recent enormous dealings In
the stock market, although to-day's business
was even more congested in a few stocks than
at any time hitherto. In fact the general mar
ket did not at -any time fully respond to the
manipulation of the leaders. Union Pacific
at the beginning of the last hour of the day
was left alono in its upward course, the sell
ing having embraced practically every other
Ftock in the list. When Union Pacific itself
psve way the slump of prices became general
throughout the list. In the principal active
Ftocks it amounted from 2 to 5 points and
from 1 to 2 points all through the general
lift. This decline offered attractive ¦ profits to
the room traders and when Union Pacific mart*
|ta final spurt the covering by the bears caused
Fome feverish rallies, but the closing was er
ratic with new points cf weakness develop
ing. The action of the market Is difficult to
explain from any news of the day and seamed
to be wholly due" to technical " causes. There
are those who believe that a very 'widespread
fe»linp exists that the speculation and the
advance In prices have been overdone." and that
there Is danger of a tight money market
which would force liquidation on an over
strained market. The disposition to draw in
speculative lines and reduce commitment* . Is
the outcome of this feeling, but it Is evident
that it Is contested by a. very powerful com
bination of speculative interests who hope to
renew th» speculative activity and advance.'
Union Pacific convertible < bonds were the
leaders of the bond market at an extreme ad
vance of 2%. The market ¦ otherwise was fair
ly active, but '-the movement -of prices was
irrprular..* Total- sales, par value. $6,325,000.
United Ftates bonds wera all ' unchanged on
the last calf. ' .

New York Stock Market.
CHICAGO, April 24.— The concentrated con
dition of May corn in the hands of Phillips
and his following of bulls was fully apparent
in the course of the market. Bids on an as
cending scale which set a ' fresh high record
for the crop at every fractional spot brought
out only meager sales and this was in the, face
of the assertion by elevator interests that
country acceptances last night Were consid
erably larger than for some time. On the other
hand, however, was a firm foundation for bull
Eentiment. } The' day's receipts, eighty cars,
with only ten - of contract grade, were the
smallest In eighteen 'months. Crop .bulletins
reported that no corn had been planted north
of the Ohio River and/for the first time in
some days there was a cash Inquiry. - It - is
doubtful if any actual transactions took place
for shipment, however, Phillips bid 50%c
in the open market for No. 3 and got none.
May opened unchanged. to %c higher at.46&@
47c. and in a few minutes shot up to 48c. The
short interest, apparently, has been pretty
well eliminated, as the bidding • was mostly
by bulls, led by Phillips. He wanted May all
the way up, but. got pnly 400,000 bushels. At
the top this support was withdrawn for a
time and the market reacted suddenly to 47c,
where it steadied on the renewed bull sup
port and ' reacted sharply to 48c, advanced
further -to 48^4c, reacted to 47%c and closed
strong, l%c higher at 48%c. The July option
was but little affected by the course of May.
Traffic in wheat futures was active. May
opened %@%c higher at 71%@71%c because
cables were st»ady and in sympathy with corn.
Country belief in gorgeous crop prospects was
reflected in selling orders, and for a few min
utes-there were indications of easiness. May
hpwever, worked only to 71%@71&c. - Outside
sentiment turned bullish following this and
ruled -thus to the end. The . aggressive corn
strength and highly encouraging export - talk
were the main factors, but a heavy world's
visible decrease was also Influential. • May as
cended steadily to 7254c, , but worked back to
72@72Hc on profit-taking. .The close was strong
%o higher at 72%c. ' ', . sirung.
Oats were strong In sympathy with wheat
and corn, an excellent demand for the cash
article and unfavorable weather. May closed
%c higher at 26%c. ,. 3 >¦-;,.
. Provisions were. dull and neglected, but were
strong in sympathy with the cereal market
July pork closed 7%c higher, lard 5c up and
ribs 2%c- better. :
- The 7 leading futures ranged as follows:
Chicago Grain Market.
The pressure has fallen rapidly during the
ra« twelve hours over Northern Oregon and
there are a few favorable indications for the
development of a email depression over North
ern Nevada. This would probably result in
fresh southwest winds with considerable cloud
intss and light rain over Northern California.
Th» temperature has changed but little dur
ing the past twenty-four hours, except in the
vicinity of San Francisco, where there has
br*n a fall of 12 degrees. Conditions are
favorable for cloudy weather and fog on the
coast Thursday. ;

Weather Report.
Mail advices from New York 6ay: "The
trade is buying in a hand-to-mouth way in
practically every line of dried fruits. Some
dealer* in currants report a very slight im
provement in consumptive demand; there is. a
ccntinuance of speculative inquiry from a cer
tain large local jobbing house and figs continue
to fell quite freely, but otherwise conditions
prevailing throughout the market are dis
couraging. Stocks of California prunes are 4n
crf-asir.g and prices are weakening, with buy
ing all for immediate wants. Supplies of Ore
eens also are becoming excessive for this sea
sen of the year, and some sales at extremely
low prices are heard of. «jne lot of about a
car It was Ftated yesterday, which were marked
20-SOs, but counted nearer 30-40s, were sold at
6 '4c in 25- Jp boxes. Forties to fifties can be
bought at 4%c. Trade in seeded raisins, both
en the spot and from the • coast, is small.
There would be more business in goods from
the coast but for the special label which the
association has specified must be printed on
each carton. This feature is strongly objected
to by the trade without exception. Trade in
loose raisins is very light. Apples are quiet,
¦with few goods of etdcily prime quality to be
had." •

CLOSING,
NEW YORK, April 24.— The Commercial Ad
vertiser's London, financial ..cablegram, says:
The stock market ,here was engrossed In . the
settlement to-day, after' which the tendency
to buy for speculative ' account was generally
smajl— except in Americans,' where it was very
large and required prolonged arrangement.
Trading in the American department ; became
heavy and everybody was inclined to sell on
the break yesterday afternoon and. the day be
fore in' New York. But early purchases of
Union Pacific hardened the list, then New
York opened strong and there was a great de
mand for Union Pacifies, which advanced 'by
leapstjand bounds. The Northern Pacific issues
and SC-Paul also wera wanted and the bidding
for these hoisted the most of the list. . Lon
don, however, . is rendered very apprehensive
by. these' sporadic movements." Money was
hard owing to the ¦ large sums locked up
against the new issue of consols. Silver was
weak on profit-taking for speculative account.

NEW YORK, April 24.— There was very lit
tle interest manifested in the local markets to
day. The only change upon ! the list, that of

without change upon the basis or £17 .2a 6d.
Tin, • both here and in London, remained feat

while in London a loss of 10s was noted..
.Copper was a shade firmer abroad, spot clos

local situation, .however, was very tame but
steady unorf the basis of $17 for Lake and

New York Metal Market.
BOSTON, April 24.— The American Wool and
Cotton Reporter . to-morrow will say: Aside
from the liberal purchases of fine Australia
and Ohio Delaine at the very beginning of the
week under review, by a well-known mill,
which practically cleans up the supply of such
stock in this market, <he usual trade has ruled
very dull and has presented locally few features
of interest. . The sales referred to consisted of
something like 1500 bales of Australian; which
were taken, it is reported, at prices ' ranging
from 32c to ' 34c, equivalent to a clean cost of
65@67c. The Delaine wools amounted to about
150.C00 pounds ¦ and the . prices paid are under
stood to have been 28@29c. The sales reflect
the tendency of the demand toward fine wools,
which are relatively much stronger than me
dium and low-grade wools,' and they indicate
the confidence of consumers in this class of
stocks for which prices are firmly held. Tak
ing, the market as a whole the purchasing has
been mostly of a piecing-out character. | There
is no disposition to anticipate future require
ments to any great extent and no speculative
tendency . Is ¦ noticeable. While trading may be
very dull the tone of the market, as far as
prices are concerned, is very steady. The sales
for the week in .Boston- amounted- to 2,591,000
pounds ¦ domestic ¦ and • 690.0CO pounds foreign,
making a total of 3,281,000 pounds, against a
total of 4,108,000 pounds for the previous week
and; a total, of 2,256,000 pounds for the corre
sponding week last year. The sales since Jan
uary 1 amount to 76,123,000 pounds, against
52,159,200 pounds for the corresponding time
last year. ••¦'.¦.' . :' . '. .
