Nsw ob«, Dec,; There have been
any number of weak spots in the stock
market to-day. Union and Missouri Pa
cifies were the most prominent. The"sup
■ ply of each seemed unlimited, and '.before
there was any check to thedeolino ths for
t mer had lost 4 per cent, and the latter over
3. The real •of the list { crumbled - away
gradually, and it was not until la is in the
day that anything in the-way of a rally ap
peared. The closing of the year is always
a time for' evening up accounts. vMany
short lines were probably covered/ and not
a few holders of some of^the weakest
properties no doubt took tkeir losses, pre
ferring to await developments before en
tering the field anew. There were varices
rumors regarding the condition, cf Oregon
Transcontinental. It was "intimated; that
the company . was really,, in ' debt- to , its
late president. Northern Pacific preferred
seamed to be "pegged" at about 50. {

dar year 1883; .something over : $109,000,
-000. Daring the six months tho secretary
has made four calls for a little over $70,
-000,000. •! Of. the ■; $40,000,000. - bonds cov
ered by, the 1233, 123J and \ l24th ball*
made in September, October and Novem- '
ber, there were yet to be redeemed at
the close of business to-day $18,69 and
there are ' small - unredeemed
remainders from .previous bond /balls;
amounting altogether to less than $20,
-000,000. /With a probable surplus of $50,
-000,000 in the next six {''months.* The sec
: retary might bo expected to issue another!
bond ©all in a iVw dajn "for $10,000,000
with' a probability- that one or two more
. Buch;cal!s will be made before the , end of
the fiscal year. What the .-secretary can
.do-in the way of calling before' July 1, of
bonds to be redeemed after, that date, de
pends entirely on. what congress does with
the .• revenues - ,t"iis;{{.;". winter, / but
' the surplus for the next six; months will
exceed {{that" {of .t-/the {{last ■••{ six. months.
It may assumed that the revenue from
customs will not change materially. The
fluctuations heredepend/ much - oh prices
frota time to time, and cannot be esti
mated.bat there is going -to be aii increase
in internal revenue. Internal revenue re
ceipts, for the year, estimated, on col
lections of the 'last six .'months would be
$122,600,000, but there will be collected in
April, May £ and June $6,000,000 % from
special taxes, of which none were collected
in the last six months. {; If {"congress \ does',
not promptly - pass {a bill ; extending
the { bonded {, period { % there' {will;:: be
an extra revenue of $3,000,000 %or $4,000,
-000 from whisky forced out of bond by the
bonded period. a Even if such a law went
into effect before" July 1 j some ' $2,000,000
and more would be collected {to increase
the revenues if or" the last half of the { year.
Furthermore'the tobacco collection for the
first three months of the {current/fiscal
year were below the average, undoubted-:
ly because {they. ..-.* had bean antici
pated" by large purchases 4of
■stamps before July and after
the red notion of the tobacco taxes went in
to effect. A'moderate • estimate of , these
three items would raise the internal reve
nue for the year to $130,000:000, and more
probably to $133,000,000. './In'; advance of
any ohange on the rate of expenditures
this would increase the surplus revenue for
the next six ' months •; to"{$60,000,000 or
[ more. .But payment of interest is ;{always
a decreasing quantity, and probably,/ pen
sion -payments for the next six months will
fall ■ below ; $30,000,000,- what {they
amounted tb/for the last Bis {; months.
The '. • prospect4l3 / good ; for .a- -large
hole in the outstanding three per cents,
and a substantial redustion in the National
bank circulation by July 1. ..
{It will take some $3,000,000 or $4,000,000
to pay the - tobscco tax rebates,' but: this
sum {is; not likely to come of; receipts of
current fiscal year. - ■■ -
■' •:{ Congress will hardly,get an' appropria
tion for purpose passed in time,.'{and
it is still less likely, that the treasury will;
be ready before July Ist to pay. the claims.
The fifth auditor : will not : get through
