BIO SLUMP IN SUGAR.
Prico Knooked Down by Those in the "King." Sales of Over 61,000 Shares Re corded in iho First Hour. BabsequcnUy Thero Win a Rally nncl tho Prlco Went Up. Sugar furnished the sensation of the morning at the Stock Exchange. The dealings In It were on an enormous fcale, nnd for a time exceeded those In all other stocks combined. Those Identified with the Trust pre tended to be dissatisfied with the tariff chedule drawn In lis Interest, and to foster this Idea a sharp onslaught was made upon the shares. Ine'er a perfect avalanche of offerings, hree points were knocked oft the price n a few minutes, and many unfortu ates tv ere forced to get out by the lipld wiping out of margins The lowest figure touched was 1031-4, tgj k t around this price buying orders f ipeared In sufficient amount to turn S fie tide, and a rally to 100 ensued. j5l The trading tn Sugar during the first til iur exceeded 61,000 shares. 1(1 i Undoubtedly some selling was done Hl 'ccause of the Breckinridge amendment M !n the 10UBe yesterday, as this Is ac IJH 'eptM as meaning a sharp fight In Wm hat body if the sugar schedule comes m jefore It tn Its present shape. Hj ' The general market stood up remark HJ fbly well under the break In Sugar, H yielding only 1-8 to 3-4, the latter for HJ General Electric, which sold down to 37. HJ All stocks the bears cared to sell were HJ readily absorbed, and a rally quickl HJ took place. HJ The stubbornness of the general list HJ was a great surprise to the shorts, mho HJ tem to be utterly unable to bring out Hj long stock. H If operators only knew when tariff H agllatlon would stop, there is little doubt HJ that they would advance the market at HJ least until the short Interest was ellml HJ nated. HJ So far as Sugar Is concerned the In HJ elders have everything to gain and noth HJ lng to lose They can play a safe game HJ so long aB they can get earlier and more H reliable Information from Washington HJ than any one else. HJ St. Paul sold only 1-8 below last night, HJ although II Is known that the company H has disposed of J2.0000.000 general mort H gage 4 per cent, bond", which have been In Its treasury since the organization I The bears made a mistake In giving currency to the report that the com- pany Intended to make a brand new Issue of bonds The sale just made Is no bur M prise. It having been understood that the H bonds would be disposed of whenever the situation warranted It. St. 1'aul later rose from 60 7-8 to CI 3-8 Distillers advanced 1-2, to 25; Atchison 1-2. to 12 3-3: General Electric 1-2. to 37 1-2; Lake Shore 1-2. to 130 1-2; Mls- sourl Pacific 1-2, to 30 1-4: New York Cen- tral 1-2, to 99 1-4 and Burlington &.

The stock market relapsed Into dul- ness after midday, but speculation de- veloped Increased strength, and on com- piratlvely light offerings prices made a further advance. The features were Sugar, St. Paul. Burlington and DIs- tillers. The first-named was a notable exception selling down to about 101 under a heavy pressure to sell.
