THE DAYS OPERATIONS IN STOCKS.
The complications and manipulation connect
ed with Third Avenue Railroad affairs and
Third Avenue Railroad stock speculation again
exerted a disturbing influence upon the general
stock market. Third Avenue broke sharply,
touching the lowest price of the current move
ment, while it failed to hold the rally which fol
lowed the announcement of the formation of a
committee of stockholders by three Important
banking houses. Bear traders were aggressive
throughout the list. There was. however, no
h^avy liquidation, and. with "the exception of
the industrial shares, losses were not large or
in any case, save Third Avenue, significant of
any change in the e.nditions governing the real
worth of securities. Railroad stocks resisted
bear pressure in the morning, but in the after
noon they declined with the rest of the list. The
late report that the Senate and House confer
rees had reached an agreement on the Finance
bill caused rallies from the lowest, but final
changes showed net losses In the greater num
ber of Issues. An unfavorable forecast of to
day's bank statement helped to create bear sen
timent.
!The stock market Is not In a position that
calls for alarm on the part of investment hold
ers of (securities or pessimism on the part of
the •marginal" speculator. Underlying conditions
are sound, and the same may be said of tech
nical market conditions. A dull market Is dis
couraging to both the bull and the bear, but
current dulness will not last forever, and when
the change comes it will doubtless mark the
beginning of a decidedly active movement. And
at present there is little reason to believe that
such a movement will be in the direction of
lower prices. Bear enthusiasts argue that fa
vorable developments are having no effect upon
values, and in consequence market quotations
must soon go lower. The argument stops there.
It is a poor argument, because it is not backed
by conditions that encourage the sale of stocks
either by investors or speculative holders. Stock
market trading has become monotonous, and
every broker and operator in the Street would
■welcome some development which would arouse
peculation from its slumber.
In answer to the bear argument Just cited, the
• believers in higher prices say that in their
opinion the factors which are increasing the
actual worth of securities are cumulative in
I effect in relation to market values. They do
not believe that the enormous gains In railroad
earnings and the growing prosperity in general
will fail to find their place as market factors.
A famous Wall Street operator, who has been
a bear In the greater part of his Wall Street
experience, said in the week that one could not
bear stocks successfully for any length of time
In the face of continued heavy railway earnings.
The younger bear element will do well to keep
\ this remark in mind. Money market condi
f tions may help the bear at times, but it should
be borne in mind that higher rates for money
this spring will not come upon a stock market
filled with weak accounts. And the "philan
thropists" who manipulated money rates last
fall in order to check speculative enthusiasm
and incidentally to make large profits at the
expense of the operators on margin, will not be
able to ply their trade with any especial success.

announcement that the last named tlrni, with

BANK STATEMENT ESTIMATES.
The estimates made yesterday on to-day's bank
statement were uniformly unfavorable. The known
movement of money in the week suggests a consid
erable decrease in cash, but the surplus cannot be
figured on, owing to that unknown quantity the
loan account. The banks lost only about SSOO.OOO
on the Interior currency movement, but on Sub-
Treasury operations the loss amounted to about
93,000,000. Receipts from California not included
in the Interior movement amounted to about ILOOOv
000. leaving therefore a loss In cash holdings on
known figures of $2.rt0n.000. Money market rates
were not changed yesterday from the level ruling
on Wednesday.

PEOPLES GAS RUMORS.
A Wall Street house received the following ills
patch from its Chicago correspondent yesterday
regarding People"s Gas stock: "A report reaches
us from your olty that People's (Jas has been no
tably weak on reiiorts that a bill WtU be intro
duced in the Illinois Legislature to increaM the
taxable valuation of the company's property 'M
per cent additional to what they already pay, and
this can hardly have foundation, as the Legislature
cannot do it, and no action at any rate could be
taken, as they are not In session nor will they be
until January, 1901, unless called In special session."
Officers of Ut< Ogdep Gas Company say that they
attribute the weakness of the stock of the People's
Gas Company to the extensions which the Ogden
company will make on and after May :. when the
present territorial agreement expires. They assert
that they will increase their output from 1,000,000
t<. 4,600,008 feet ■ <lay.

EXCITEMENT IN COTTON.
Much excitement prevailed on the Cotton Ex
change yesterday, following an errs tic, sensational
advance In prices at Liverpool, the latter market
closing at a net rise of 5d to 6 10-64 don the future
list and 5-324 on the spot quotation, as compared
with the closing of Wednesday. Many of th» local
traders had prepared themselves for Just such a
happening, bearing In mind ihe lesson they learned
over Lincoln's Birthday, when th« Engllnh market
treated the cotton trade of this country In mum
tho same fashion. The Liverpool advance, accord-
Ing to private dlnpatcnes. was to a considerable
extent on th« report than In circulation to the ef
fect- lhat'CrnnJ* had surrenders Hut apart from
the South'. African bituatlon. the English cotton
trade manifested alarm in consequence or th *,vi,h
turle of holder? of -otton In this country. *T'_?
their own stocks down to 6fiO.OuO bales, **^""
1.801.000 a year ago and 1.179.0H0 In 1898. they *'«
n*<verttielcss taking only one-third of the » I '™'

the other two-thirds going to the Continent. in **" c
was a large amount of selling by w* 11 informed con
cerns. Everything offered for «ale was P ro P£:';,
• absorbed by the 1 > ■- a » • 1 1 • at large or through i<"ceu
covering by the shorts, and the market closed prac
tically at the highest level of the day, an advance
ranging ail the way from 9 to 27 points.
IRON TRADE CONDITIONS.
Aside from some sales of Bessemer pig In Pitts
burg, aggregating about 20,000 tons, taken by large
Interests, the pig Iron markets are exceedingly
quiet. Buyers of foundry Iron all over the country
seem determined to await developments until they
commit themselves further. The majority seem
quite well supplied for considerable time to come,
ond they are willing to take their chances beyond
that. Under the pressure there has been some
weakening of prices, and In Isolated Instances
large producers have named lower figures, partic
ularly for the second half. It Is a fact, too. that a
few consumers are beginning to ask that deliveries
be not pushed. The event of the week In steel bil
lets has been the closing of a contract between the
leading consuming Interest and large steel makers
involving about 75,000 tons of steel for early de
livery. Report has it that it is merely a conver
sion contract. In any case it relieves the pressure
which has been exerted on the market lately. The
sheet consolidation under the auspices of the Moore
I arty secures a very large tonnage to the National
Steel Company, rising, as it does, above 600.000 tons
annually. Practically this makes this large pro
••.■!■ and Its allied Interests self-contained, the
tonnage of the tin plate, hoop and steel companies
being very large in the aggregate. With some rail
tonnage and considerable billet tonnage In addi
tion the company has Its capacity fairly well
engaged. The formation of the sheet consolidation
has had an Immediate effect upon prices In the
Central West. The plate trade continues weak.
The reports from the structural mills continue quite
encouraging. Car builders are still coming into tho
market for material, and have lately placed some
notably good orders for axles and special forg-
Ings.— (The Iron Age.
NORFOLK AND WESTERN.
A Will Street Xews Bureau says that the advance
in Norfolk and Western stocks has been marked
by buying that looks like steady accumulation of
stock for account of aumn one Interest. There has
DO ('..ubt^ been a good deal of speculative buying
as well, baaed, and properly ?o, on the large earn
ings of the read, but the main demand seems of a
more permanent character.
"BRADSTREET'S" GRAIN EXPORTS.
"Bradstreet'a" reports the exports of wheat (flour
