The opening of tho stock markot was strong, owing to an Improvement in the prices for American securities In London and purchases of about 16,000 shares of various stocks, prin cipally Reading first preferred, 8U Paul and Louisville and Nashville, by foreign arbi trage houses. Tho first prices rocorded, however, proved to bo, as a rule, the best of tho day, for as soon as the foreign orders wero filled the market began to feel tho effects of realizing Bales and of e (Torts to de press prices. Both wero most pronounced In tiugnr Refining, In which there was a maximum decllno of 6 points, making a total of nearly 10 points slnco tho hit-host point was reached, a woek ago to-day. A part of the ground lost was recovered in the lato trading, so that; the net loss was reduced to 2"g V cent. Thero was no nows regarding tbo sugar refining Industry, henco tho reaction, like the rocent advance, may fairly bo regarded as largely speculative. Tbe remainder of the Hat was not seriously af fected by the movement just described, though it inducod realising sales and encouraged fresh attacks upon values by oporators who favor n more decided reaction than has yet taken place. As Is usually the case after a decided advanco in prices, a good many stop orders were uncovered on the way down, a circumstance that always helps to unsottlo tho markot. At the extreme decline commission houses appeared as buyers, and tho chances are that somo of the specula tive holdings of the more active stocks recontly disposed of by operators who have been active in stimulating tho upward movement were re covered. Tbe setback was worth a good deal to commission houses, for many of their clients have apparently become convinced that tho character of tbo market has undergone a change, and they aro thcroforo seeking opportunities to buy stocks. The lncrcnso In the volume of com mission business was greater than on any day since tbo nrcsent bull markot bcgRn. Tbo shares of the Granger trunk lines continued well In the foro of the market In every respect; but thcro was corns shifting of Interest to-iay to tho anthraclto coal stocks, nil of which were exceptionally strong and more extensively doalt in than for some time past. Delaware and Hud son wns tho lender In tho rise In this group, with Jersey Central a good socond. The groatcst activity, however, was in Reading first preforrod, which also scored a noteworthy net gain. The advance in Delawaro and Hudson was generally attributed to prospects that the company will effect a reduc tion in its Axed ohnrges by refunding, at a low rato of interest, tho bonded debt of its leased lino, tbo Albany and Susquehanna Railroad. With tbo other anthracite stocks, it was alio affectod by the belief that developments aro im pending that will Improve tho condition of nil of tho coal-carrying roads. The transactions on the Stock Exchange to day, viowed in tho aggregate, show a broaden ing tendency, and also that tho markut Is de veloping a swing that Is indicative of activity on the part of Important interests, as well as on tbe part of tho public It Is also plnln that tho markot is no longer a one-sided one, and it Is manifestly safer becauso of that fact. Tbe dealings In bonds, like those- In stocks, wero somewhat smnllor than yester day, but tho bond market was strong throughout, and a number of noteworthy not advances look place. The issues of Southorn and Southwestern railroads are receiving in creasing attention after being neglected for a long time. This is became Interest lias here tofore been dlrectod chiefly to the grain-carrying roads by orop prospects, that have already begun to affect earnings. In the South tho prin cipal staple crop, namely, cotton, Is about two weeks bohlnd time, and In any event it does not begin to move to market as soon as tbo cereals grown In tbo Northern and Northwest ern States. For this reason the earnings of Sontunrn roads may not show decldod improve ment in tho near future, but tho certainty of hoavy traffic during tho last half of the year is already beginning to attract Investors to tbe securities of railroads traversing the Southern States, In the last hour tho mnrket rallied sharply, so that tho only noteworthy net de cline other than that in Sugar Refining was In American Tobacco.
