were very little affected by the drop in the
others. The short interest is enormous. Soon
after 12 it was announced that Commissioner
Pink had received a communication from the
officials of the Baltimore & Ohio asking a restora
tion of grain rates from St. Louis to fifteen cents
from Chicago to New York. This restoration, it
is said, has been made and will, it is claimed, set
at rest all fears of Fink intending to resign.
Upon the announcement of the action of the
Baltimore it Ohio the temper of speculation at
the Stock Exchange underwent a radical chancre
with a sharp advance in the entire list, the shorts
being greatly alarmed. Thera were heavy pur
chases by brokers supposed to represent Gould
and Vanderbilt. The dealings were attended by
great excitement. New Jersey Central advanced

Stocks—The share market opened weak and
depressed for coal stocks. Philadelphia & Read
ing and Xew Jersey Central were especially weak
and lower, the former breaking from 36 to 33? i
and the latter from 70?s to 71 !£. Some traders
were conspicuous sellers and made a strong
effort to dislodge 50,000 shares of Xew Jersey
Central held by the Philadelphia & Reading, cir
culating all sorts of unfavorable rumors. Gran
gers and Trunk line shares also weak. Missouri
Pacific, Western Union Telegraph, Northern Pa
cific and Xew York, Lake Erie & Western were
excep!ionally strong and in good demand. After
midday it was announced from Commissioner
Fink's office that the Baltimore & Ohio road had
restored grain rates from St. Louis eastward to a
basis of fifteen cents from Chicago to Xew
York. This caused a marked change for the
belter and the bears made a rush to cover, but
found less stock offering than they had antici
pated. In their haste to buy they had prices up
on themselves and in a very little time the mar.
ket was I@4 per cent, higher, the improvement
being quite general. Xew Jersey Central rose 4

Near 2 the excitement subsided and there was a
reaction of ?i@l!» per cent., the latter for Phila
delphia & Heading. Subsequently a strong buy
ing movement set in and many shares sold up to
the highest point of the day. Just before the
close the bears raided Wabash, St. Louis & Pa
cific preferred down to 14;£, Missouri, Kansas &
Texas to 15?^, Delaware, Lackawanna & Western
to 1137 a, Chicago & Northwestern to HOJs and
