Blnoe the beginning of tho woek the stock market has rofiected a dlfferonco of opinion as to the Immediate course of prices, and to-day it becatno most pronounced. A large proportion of the professional element holds tho view that tho market is entitled to a decldod roactton and that the realizing of profits has been sufficient to bring it about. Tho oporators roferred to have, acting to an extent in concert, mode vig orous attacks upon the market overy day this woek, and to-day they wero especially aggressive. They have encountered all along Increasing confidence on tho part of substantial Interests and also on the part of the public, for the lastnnmed has Anally mado its nppearanoe in Wall street. Two or throo determined on slaughts woro mado to-day, and In certain sec tions of the markot thoy wero permanently suo ccssful, but tho majority of the list proved superior to realizing sales and profes sional manipulation and closod higher than yesterday. Tho only noteworthy net de clines were in American Tobacco, Jersoy Central, Susquehanna and Western prcforrcd, and a few of the usually Inactive stocks. On tho other hand, Chesapeake and Ohio, General Elec tric, Southern Railway preferred, Wabash pre ferred, and a long list of stocks dealt in less ex tensively closed materially higher than yester day. Foreign arbltrago bouses traded more freely than for a long time past, and bought more than they sold. All advices from London agree that there is a revival thero of interest in American securities and that, as noted in this column a woek ago. both investors and speculators are breaking away from the leadership of bankers and newspapers that have belittled the present movement in American railway securities nnd endeavored to dissuade the IJritish publlo from participating in it A few facts regarding the market so far this week aro well worth considering. Ono is that for four consecutivo days tho transactions in stocks havo averaged over 400,000 shares, yot thrso unusual transactions have not been ac companied by indications of a culmination in the advance in prices. Within the samo period tho dealings In bonds havo increased steadily, until to-day they reached nearly 54,000.000 par value. In tho stock markot there has been a steady Improvement in tho distribu tion of business, and a more general Interest has been shown by the increase in tho number of small amounts of stock traded In. Tho trans actions in fractional lots to-day footed up near ly 30,000 shares, and it is also significant that there was a decided Incroaso in the number of 100 and 200 lots dealt in. This cannot be attributed to manipulation, as there is no operator nor aggregation of operators work ing In tho market capablo of producing such results. It Is patent that thero has been a very decided increase in the number of people patron izing the Stock Exchange, cither for Investment or speculation. While upon this point it may bo noted that tho trading in Sugar Refining, which was unusually heavy last week, has been upon a declining scalo slnco the beginning of tho present week. That tho amount of money seeking invest ments of tho most conservative character Is still very largo Is shown by tho bids rcccivod to-day for the 810,000,000 of 3a Vccnt. bonds of the city. Those bids aggregated more than two and n half times the amount of bonds offered, and tho indications aro that thoy will ho awarded upon a basis thnt will roduco tho interest to tho city to a Httlo more than 3g V cent. In tho faco of this and other favorablo dc velopmontB tho professional clement endeavored to attach Importanco to reports of damage to the growing crops In a few localities In the West and to exports of gold on Saturday, which may possibly foot up $'.500.000. Bankers and the business community generally do not regard these shipments with apprehension, because it Is well understood that they aro mado in pay ment of extraordinary Imports of merchan dise which will be offset later in tho yenr by equally heavy exports of bread stuffs. So far as present remittances are Influenced by sales of securltlos by Europe, it is already plain that those securities aro certain to bo repurchased and largo amounts taken be sides. Tho wlthdrawnl of $100,000 gold from tho Sub-Treasury for shipment to Canada shows that recent heavy imports from across tho bor der have not yot been entirely paid for. Tho revival of activity in Chesapeake and Ohio is explained by tho fact that tho annual re port for the llscal yoar Just ended will mako an unusually good showing, as snonn f urthor on in this column. Itenowod activity in Wnbasb pre ferred Is also oxplalued by tho coiupuny's trnfllo returns for Juno. Tho Juno statement of the C, Ii. and Qulncy Company provcuted that stock from jlcldlng ns much as tho other nicm bers of tho group to which It belongs. A sharp decllno In Brooklyn Itopld Transit, nioro than half of which was subsequently recovered, resulted from tho publication of mis leading statements regarding tho status of ne gotiations betwoen tho company and othor transportation interests In Drooklyn. It can be stated upon authority that tho negotiations re ferred to have not been discontinued, but aro progressing, with overy prospect of a satisfac tory conclusion. Tho closing was In the main strong, and tho final fenturo was a fair borrow ing demand for a number of the moro active stocks. Final salos compare with thoso of yesterday as lotions: ' Jul28..7ul20.
