A itronc, actlre market for lecurltles to-day
wai BOnerally recardod as refloctlsg a popular
belief that the Prcaldent's messaco removes a
number of elements of doubt from both the
bualnega and speculative situations. Tbo rank
and Die of Investors nnd of speculators are now
beginning; to realize what substantial Inter
ests, owing to tneir superior facilities for ob
taining information, beenmo convinced of two
or three weeks ngo, namely, tbat the Presi
dent's message would be anything but aggres
sive, and that the representatives In Congress
of the party In power will In all probability be In
fluenced largely by tho conservative views of the
Administration. Thero Is, therefore, a disposi
tion to make both business and speculative ven
tures on a larger scale than horetoforo. Wall
stroet at least feels tbat It is not likely
to be .hocked by a disturbance of Inter
national relations or by radical flnonclal
legislation at Washington. While a moderate
amount of manipulation was discernible on the
floor of the Stock Kxchango tOKlay.lt Is to be
notod that the greater part of It was with the
view of establishing higher prices. Tho real
support of the market, however, was an in
creased volume of legitimate business, par
ticularly In the bond department.
Now that apprehension regarding the Cuban
situation and radical changes In the currency
have been removed atuor circumstances af
fecting values aro boglnnlng to have their
legitimate effect upon price.. The most note
worthy trntllc returns made public to-day
were those of Illinois Central for Octobor
and of the Groat Northern s stein for No
vember as compared with tho corresponding
period of last year. Tho most Important earn
ings reported for November aro tboso of the
Illinois Central, Northern Pacific, and Fort
Worth and Itio Grande. Othor Items of Interest
aro the increase in the value of tho exports of
merchandise, even after making allowance for
the suspension of business ono day last week,
Tho heaviest trading was In Sugar Itcflnlng.
It supplied mora than a fifth of an active day's
business, and, at n fractional reaction, closed
28 per cent, higher than yesterday, The ad
vanco was accompanied hy rumors that an extra
dividend will bo doclarod upon tho stock to
morrow, when the usual dividends are declared.
Another report was that tbo American Com

Wheat was quiet but firmer to-day. Influenced by a
.harp rise at Chicago, covering of abort, and large
clearance., prices advanced. Foreign house, sold
here early, but without effect. Toward the close
price, reacted .tightly on realizing .alee, but the last
Srlce. were near tho top figure, of the day. Tntt
orthwe.tern receipts were moderate and the Ohio
State report wu bulll.h, giving the condition u 68
per cent. Liverpool declined 4d. to d.. but re
covered part of tbelou. Pa rla declined c. to e. on
wheat and 29 centlmoa to 30 centimes on flour. Tho
Northwestern receipts were 734 cor., against
1,043 last week and 4H2 last year. Cora wa
quiet but higher, In sympathy with wheat. Liv
erpool declined d.. but rallied and cloud
unchanged to d. higher. A correction In the visible
.upplv statement make. tb. deereose 1,000,000 bu.b.
lee. than reported yesterday. Oau were also firmer
and more actlvo than of late. Chicago reoelved 0B4
car. of corn and B07 of oats. The receipt, there to
morrow are estimated at 450 car. of corn and 310
of oats. Chicago, Deo. 7. -'There wa. a firmer
wb.at market to-day, a re.ult largely of .bort
koiiiox mo pm, i- , t-j iibi ifwion.
Th, higher crop report atlmulated the desire
to cover, which cave u. an advance of le.
from yesterday, closing with c. to c.'of tbe ad
vance lost. Abovo UOe. there was selling which was
apparently for the parties Interested In the December
d-al. December ranged from Sue. to 90c.. closing at
trRe. The lncre.se In tbn contract stock In .tore for
tbe week was only 35B.O0O busb , making a total now
of 2,880.000 bulb., something les than was antici
pated. Export elesrancea for twenty-four hours,
wheat and flour, were equal to 1.000 000 busb. Pri
mary receipt, were 870,000 bush. Liverpool closed
about steady: Paris a shade easier. New York re
ported SO boat loads sold for export. There 1. not
much use to attempt to predict what a market like
this Is going to do, when It I. weak one day and strong
the next. Until the December li out of the way the el
ement of uncertainty which ha. prevailed for tbe put
atx weeks will likely not disappear. Corn w.s.tcadled
by the wheat .trength, c, up at one time, but at
Friday', prices at tho cloae. Receipt, were 054 car.,
with 430 eltlmated for Wednesday. Cable wero

Buffalo corrected Ita stocks, 2,800,000 buih , Instead
of 1.B08.000 busb , as reported yesterday. Corn Is
not likely to weaken unless In sympathy with wheat.

Attention Is Invited to a letter from II r. Charles
Hartshorne, Vice-President of tba Lehigh Valley
Railroad Company (copies of which may ba ob
tained at our ortlcc), which sets forth that the Issue
of bonds, of which these t0,000,000 aro part, Is se
cured not only by a raortftairo on all ths railroad
and equipment owned by tbe Lehigh Valley Rail
road Company, subject only to Its exlstlns bond.,
but also by a Orst lien on stocks, bonds, and real
estate, all of which have cost the Company
" (22,000,000, and on which encumbrances of leu
"than (1,000,000 exist; and, furthermore, that the
" mortgage security will be Increased by the prop
erty to be acquired by the (7,000,000 bonds re
" served for construction and additions after Janu
"ary 1, 1900." Mr. Hartshorne doe. "not hesitate
" to say that the net Income earned by the stocks,
"bonds, and real estate already subject to the mort
"gago Is, under the most unfavorable clrcum
"stances, far In excess of tho Interest on'.the mail
" mum of (15,000,000 bonds authorised by the mort
"gage, and this Income will be further Increased
" by the net eamlnfs of the new property for which
,' (7,000 000 out of (15,000,000 bonds can only be
" used."
