MARKET WAS QUITE ACTIYE
Sugar and Chicago Gas Were the Feat
ures of Speculation.
fKICES SHOWED AN ADVANCE
Better Trade Prospects Supposed to bo Ee
sponsible for the Large Purchases in
Sugar Unfounded Bumor Had Something
to So with the Dealings in Chicago Gas.
New Tons, April 1C The featuro of the
speculation at tho opening of business this
morning was Sugar, and this stock monopo
lized tho dealings up to noon, the rest of tto
list being stagnant. Tho stock was bought
by the samo brokere who manipulated tho
deal ou Saturday, and presumably for tho
samo clique. Bujing was quite brisk, and
within less than three-quarters of an hour an
advance of 2 per cent had been estab
lished. As usual, tho probability of a chango in tho
tariff bill more faorable to tho reilners was
claimed to bo the motive for the improve
ments, but it was not unlikely that better
trade prospects had a good deal to do with
tho advance. Beforo 11 o'clock tho purchas
ing mo ement had lost its force, and the prico
began to sag OH gradually, tho last sale being
made at a figure X below tho highest point
touched, leaUug only a gain of on tho day.
After midday Chicago Gas jumped into
prominence on heny purchases based on a
report that the attorney irenerul of Illinois
had decided not to institute the quo warranto
proceedings. An advance of 3J4 per cent, was
quickly made beforo there was time to inves
tigaio tho statement regarding the attorney
general's nclion. As on previous occasions
when such a rumor was started inquiry re
sulted in tho discovery that the story vas
Without foundation in fact, but tho stock was
well supported, and in the subsequent deal
ings only li per cent, of the improvement
was lost, the eloing price being 1S per cent,
higher than the last sale made on Saturday.
Tho strength of tho shares was largely due to
covering by shorts, who had put in some long
lines last week and who feared the effects of
a disposition of the litlcation favorable to the
gas company. The adaace brought out very
few realizing sales, which indicates that tho
fchares are in strong hands.
At tho close tho tone of speculation was
heavy, and compared with Saturday's closing
prices were irregular, the changes above a
fraction boing a decline of 2 in Hocking
Valley, ljj in Duluth, South Shore and Atlan
tic preferred, and 1 in Minneapolis and St.
Louis preferred and New York, New Haven,
and Hartford, and an advance of 1 in Sugar
preferred, and 1 in Delaware, Lackawanna,
and Western. Pennsjlvama Coal sold at 310,
against 300 the last previous 6.ilc.
The railway and miscellaneous bond market
was active, but rather weak all day, although
some shares scored gains. Tho principal
changes are as follows: Declines St. Paul. 31.

WON IN THE SIXTH INNING
Regulars Obtained Their Revenge Over
the Second Raters.
ERRORS WERE VERY TLENTIFUL
For Five Innings the Beserves Held the lead.
But Afterwards tho Begulars Galloped to
tho Front with a Bush Hassamaer Filled
tho Bill at Short Field in Fine Style.
Manager Schmelz had occasion to smile yes
terday for tho first time in several moons, and
the opportunity camo when tho Regulars de
feated tho lteserves at National Park. The
gonial manager had been trving for several
days to pick out a team to represent tho Begu
lars which could win a game, and ho suc
ceeded, but it wus rather more good luck than
management which brought about tho result,
ror flv 0 innings tho despised second-raters
had tho first picks in a tight place, and it was
only after tho Iteserv es had made several bad
plays In a bunch that tho flower of. the flock
pulled themselv es together and began scoring
runs. This all happened In tho sixth Inning,
when ten runs were piled up, which settled
After this Inning Stoclsdale retired In favor
of an amateur twirler named Davis, who
finished tho game for tho lteserves. In the
language of W. L Hodgkins, Davis "is nil
right, but he won't do." and this about sizes
him up. Ho had been pestering tho manager
to give him a trial, and hi3 efforts yesterday
were not a glittering success. He will not bo
signod bv tho local club this season. Stocks
dalodid splendid work uutil the fatal sixth,
when ho becamo discouraged at his poor sup
port. Neither 3Iercer nor 3Iaul covered their
positions in tho outfield to any extent, tho
iirst named particularly failing to 1111 tho bill.
Ho misjudged n couplo of lly balls which
went as hits, but should havo been easy outs.
Tho work of 3Ic3Iahon at short field was
decidedly off-color, ho hav ing had flv 0 bad
errors. At times ho plajed good ball, but
wa3 erratic and unreliable. Tctty made a (1st
of ittrjingtocovorllrst biso, and to add to
his misery Cartwright's spiked shoecamointo
contact with Petty 's hand and drew the claret.
1 up fat man weakened or tho moment, but
alter n slight jolly from Schmelz recovered his
nervo and piaj ed the string out. With such
kind of support it was a wonder tho lteguiars
did not mako double as many tallies.
ltadford and Sullivan mado their first ap
pearance with the Beserves and they both
pU)ediiko n houe atirc. Sullivan covered
second in line st j le.and his only defect was in
losing his head iu running tho baes. Bad
ford batted well and fielded in his uual
elegant manner. Dugdalo was weak on high
foul balls and muffed two which should havo
been easily held.
"Soaring Bill" Hnsamacr tackled the po
sition of short for the Regulars, and ho proved
a wonder. Ho had ten chance and accepted
nil of them in great shape. Nothing was too
hard for him, and his plaving favorably im
pressed tho spectators. Ward had plenty to
do at second, and while ho took care of a
good many opportunities was guilty of a
couple mfeplnj s which cost runs. But Ward
had company "in error-making 3IcGuire nnd
Tebeau being tho offenders. Tho latter hail a
tough tlmo of it in center, making two muffs
aud failing to stop a ground ball. He and
3IcGulro hit the ball hard, especially thn lat
ter, who knocked out n single, double triple,
and homer out of six times at the bat. Kgaa
pitched only a fair game, although his sup
port wa3 poor.
The flrst flv e innings were quickly over, with
tho lteserves in the lead by 3 to 1 and going
easy. In tho sixth, w 1th ono out, btocksdale
gaveSelbach a bao oa balls and 3IcGuiro
singled. At this juncture Selbach started to
steal third, and Dugdalo made a pretty throw
to 3Iulvey, who got tho ball In heaps of time
but failed to touch the runner. Cartwright
was purposely given his baso on balls, filling
the bases. Tebeau put up a high foul, which
Dugdalo made a bad muff of, and after this
llfo Tebeau hit for threo bases, sending in
three men. Egan's little ilydroppcd safe.and
a few hits and errors by 3Ic3Iahon and Petty
allowed a total of ten runs to como in beforo
the Inning closed.
From this time on tho gamo wa3 devoid of
interest, although the Beserves kept up their
nerve, but it was no go. The score:
