FUTILE RAID . BY BEARS
FOKCEO TO COVEIt BY STRONG CON
DITION OF THE STOCK MARKET.
Some? Notable Cains After a Short
Period of Initial Weakness Gen

At New York, yesterday, money on call

The outside public still refused to mani
fest any Interest In the stock market yes
terday, and operations continued wholly In
the hands of professional traders. This ele
ment made an attempt to force a continu
ance of last week's reaction, using, as their
main argument, the drain being made upon
the cash .resources of the banks. Yester
day's statement of subtreasury operations
showed a loss already, since Friday, to
that institution, of 51.421,000. This showing
helped the bears In an early raid on the
market, which wiped out the opening gains
and carried prices generally below Satur
day's closing level. One or two stocks suf
fered from Individual causes, ana helped
on the reaction. Pacific Mall. People's Gas
and Third-avenue showed continued weak
ness, and Pennsylvania was depressed on
reports of a new car trust involving many
million dollars. The boars did not succeed
In bringing -out any large offerings, and
were driven to cover on the development
of aggressive strength in several stocks,
including Sugar, Ilubber. Chicago, Indian
apolis & Louisville, Tobacco, General Elec
tric. Lackawanna and Third-avenue. The
most potent factor In the railways was the
large Increase in earnings for the second
week of February, shown by a number of
railroads. Norfolk & Western made the
most striking exhibit, with an increase
over the corresponding period of last year
of i33,8T8. which is nearly i per cent. This
resulted in a large absorption of the stock
at an extreme advance of 2i, and had a
sympatneuc effect on all the bituminous
coal-carrying roads, contributing to the
rally in Pennsylvania and Ilaltimore &
Ohio. Toledo & Onlo Central showed an
Increase in earnings of 75 per cent, for the
second week in February. These evidences
or the large demand for bituminous coal
were coupled with reports of increasing

cause of difficulty in obtaining soft coal.
The anthracite group showed the effect of
this and of published forecasts of the an
nual statements of Lackawanna, which is
to be published to-morrow, Intimating a
high percentage of earnings for the year.
In addition, Ontario & Western showed an
Increase of 44 per cent, in earnings for the
k A? the Southcrn group. Louisville &
Isashvllle made a showing for the week
which was-54 per cent, better than that of
!ltT: its Increase, in gross, amounting
. h31"- AU the returns received show
striking gains, though those enumerated
are the largest. The cotton-carrying roads,
t-specially, showed recovery from the re
cent low level of earnings. aiiJ were ad
vanced in price In consequence. The tonic
effect of these extraordinary earnings
.proved too much for the bears, and they
were forced to cover. The continued ease
or call money, which ranged from 2 to 2
per cent., neutralized the alarmist view
of the money market outlook. Some slight
effect was produced also by the -reports of
further-British successes in South Africa.

points. Dealings were not on a large scale
but held quite firm near the top.

LOCAL GRAIN AXD PRODUCE.
The Week Opens with a Fairly Active
Trade and Firm Prices.
On the wholesale streets yesterday tmde was
quite active, the dry goods houses, the druggists
and toe grocers being busy. Trade with the
millinery nouses' and hoot and shoe merchants is
Improving. The hide and leather markets con
tinue active, but prices, although not quotably
lower, cairy an easier tone. Provisions are mov
ing well at the recently revised and advanced
prices. Fjultry. eggs and butter are steady,
with receipts Increasing, on Commission row, as
usual an Monday, it was rather quiet, the tem
perature st'll being too low to snip fruits and
vegetables except by express or in heated cars.
In prices there were no changes calling for com
ment, but In most lines a hardening tendency is

Woods, president of the National Bank of
Commerce, Dec. 9 last, for alienating the

tract. The terms of settlement are said to
Include the payment to Mr. Grlssom of
$30.000, while Mrs. Grlssom was allowed a

$100,000 damages, alleging that the doctor
had persistently worked to pet his daughter
against Mr. Grlssom. and finally succeeded,
and another suit for $10,000 for breach of
contract, alleging that Dr. Woods had
agreed to pay him to leave New York and
come to Kansas City and write books.

UNION STOCKYARDS, INDIANAPOLIS,
Feb. 19. For the beginning of tho week
there was a fair supply of horses Jn the
auction sale to-day, but smaller than ex
pected on account of a railroad wreck
holding back some of the consignments.
Less than 100 head were offered, and the
quality generally was not very satisfac
tory. Most of the animals were a little
thin in flesh and consequently were not
much wanted. There was a fair attendance
of buyers, but on account of the scarcity of
choice stock the bidding was backward and
It was more or less difficult to negotiate
sales at barely steady prices. Most of the
supply sold to feeders at prices ranging
from $G5 to $100 per head.
