W. Dean of Hoiton and by William P-m' tVsUlses Christie of I'aterson, N. J. Mr. Chris- BEplX tie's paper was purely technical, treating of 'KKf trailer tests and Uie classification and plotting ?PK E "' the,r w,u,t8- Mr- Jenn' WPr contained &S much of Interest to everybody who has to use i lll'tl fo team boilers for tho production of power or i,Al'K fir heat. It dealt with the redaction in the cost of 'V wfefe$ ttaam Dower since 1870. Z q'mL r Twenty-seren years ogo, he said,' the Corllsi ri ' C slmpls condensing engine was tho most eoo- vm' ' K' nomlcol In use, and this consumed 10 or SO L ' U pounds of steam an hour for each horso power 'W i K deTelooed. In other words, that weight of 'i 5 water hod to bo turned into steam every hour h W S J tor each horso power doreloped. To-doy, In the ' ' s W- "'' t'Drs ' compound engines only a little (fttifi y' more than one-holt this quantity of steam is V nV I needed, or llii Hounds. In the near future, he ''" K 5 iv Mid, the uio of superheated steam offers such 4 H j, & ' farther economics that wo havo a right to an m !fJn tlclpato n further reduction of the amount rRin'1 needed to produce, a horso power for an hour to PHk 10 Punds Alroady, in Germany, a small rBE1 Bchmldt motor has dovcloped power at the rata ff ? of use of 10.17 pounds. HHQ Mr. Dean figures that the saving effected by 9 K& the use of compound engines, steam Jaokots, s'aaBaarN stoam roheators, higher pressures of stoam and .COBB'S greater expansions is 37 per cent. Another f Blf saving of 5 per cont. is made by using vertical ;'t fk engines Instead of horizontal; vertical, inter- feR f rially fired bollors of tho looomotlvo typo savo ? ?f 1 por cent, more, improvod grates 2 por cent. v,r'K Sv one" general economizers 7 per cont. raoro, so 3VK r'- that there Is a direct saving altogether of 08 ft K & per cent, over the cost of stoam cower twenty- 'fiaaV Ft seven years ago. To this may bo added a re- s2t , ductlon In the co3t of coal of 40 per cent., and SIK A- to this a further reduction due to tho smaller K t cost of a plant to-day and lower interest vr S charges.

To-day's stock market was strongly suggea tire of a renewal ot the speculation ot last summer. At least halt a dozsn Important Interests ap peared to be active ln the market, eaoh ln the stocks with which It Is identified. In conse quence a fairly largo and well distributed busi ness was transacted at steadily advancing prices. It has been evident for some time past that the Interests referred to haro been ac cumulating stocks. They are doubtless satisfied with the outlook so far as Congress Is concerned, and apprehond no serious developments ln the Cuban-Spanish situation. Their programme for advancing prices has the support of an abnor mally easy money market, which reflects, of course, a large amount of unemployed capital. Other considerations affecting values and senti ment are so well known that it stsms superflu ous to advert to them again. It apparently needed only some such expression ot confidence from the banking community as the purchase of over $30,000,000 Rook Island refunding bonds, which was consummated yesterday after noon, to give the market a decided Impetus. Although Sugar Refining was dealt in more extensively than any other stock and enjoyed the greatest net advance, it did not by any means monopollco thn inoculation. The Gran ger group, under the Karl of St. Paul, supplied nearly 25 V cent, of tho total transactions. Other stocks that received noteworthy atten tion were Missouri Poclflo, at a net advance of neorly 2 points. PcodIo's Gas. Northern Paclflo preferred, Manhattan Railway, Louisville and Nashville, and Amorlcan Tobacco. Of the less active shares American Cotton Oil ad vanced 3 points. Fort Worth and Rio Grande 3e, Cotton Oil common 24. and St. Joe and Grand Island second preferred 14. A do clded movement was notlceablo In such stocks as Consolidated Gns, Metropolitan Railway, Pullman's Palace Car. Illinois Central, and Western Union, which are not as a rule dealt In extensively for speculative account. Tho low nrlcod stocks came in for a fair amount of attention, particularly Atchison preferred, Chicago Great Western, Laclede Gas, Mis souri, Kansas and Texas, Tcnncssoo Coal end Iron, nnd Union Pacific. Tho volumo ot commission buying, whloh has been a feature for soreral days past, was more pronounced. The backbone of the entlro movement was, however, the bond market, which has been growing stronger and moro active every day until It has now assumed significant propor tions. London showed a disposition to follow this market and will doubtless do so for some time to come. The closing was strong, at about the best prices, which, for tho active stocks, averaged fully a point and a halt higher than last night.
