The Tolume of trndtns In atocks vras not much lareer than rosterdny, but titers iraa a deoldod Improvement In the tons of the market and a material advance In prlcen wan reoorded for the majority of the list. It Is nerhaps etimlOcant that the bond market showed mare pronounced Improvement In every respect than that for stock, which, as for some time past, was almost entirely of a professional character. Other favorable developments were a weak market for sterling exohanc. easier money markets abroad, particularly at London, and advices from Washlncton foreshadowing an agree ment between the United States and Spain regarding th condition of affairs In Cuba. The unfavorable developments were a growing con vlctton that the dividend upon Delaware and Hndson wIlLoe reduced and farther efforts on the part of' an Interest that has not yet been disclosed to prevent the payment of the lost dividend declared upon the stock of the Man hattan Hallway Company. Details of the latest steps ttken to enjoin the payment of that divi dend are printed In the news columns of Tnn Suw. As to the market In detail It Is to bo noted that the closing of short contraots made In C D. and Qulncy In anticipation of the November .statement of earnings, published yesterday, placed that stock first in point of activity and also ennsed the largest net gain recorded. The advance In that stock, like the decline yester day, had a aympathetlo effect upon the other members of tho Granger group. Sugnr Kenn ing, which was second only to C, n.and Qulncy In point of activity, was comparatively neglected and closed at the same Drlce that It did yesterday. Manhattan Hallway declined nearly a point on the publication of news re garding the latest efforts to prevent the pay ment of the current quarterly dividend, bat subequentlr rallied nearly two points, only to lose abont half of that Improvement. Consid ering the stnnllDess of the market, the transac tions were remarkably well distributed, and the tone at tho close was In the main strong.
