WismnoAT. Ave 34. AJthonch a vsry cooaldsrabls and Influential lament In the stock market bslisves In a reac tion and haa bean working to brine nna about for asversl dara. prices In the main do not rs apond to their efforta. The axtonslva profit taklnE of the last tan dara. together with the efforts referred to. have resulted In an Irregular market; bat there ha been no . dim Inutlon In the volume of business not an r contraction In the apemilatton, The dealings (o-tlar were In excess of half a million shares, and the distribution was a brood ss at anr time alnoe the prcaent upward movement be gan. Borne atocka were depressed, yrt few of them materially, and the decline In those waa owing to considerations specifically suTeotlng them. Itegnrning the market aa Whole, the loeaea they sustained were more I than offset br the revival of activity In stocks " heretofore neglectedtahd by larger transactions til the bond market at advancing prices. While the market for the stocks that have been foremost in the advance haa been digesting heavy reallclng aalea the low-priced atocka. many ot which resent probabilities of enhancing-values equal to those whloh have become realities In some of the high-priced and now established divi- denrt payers during the last decade or two. are beginning to receive the attention that Is in - variably accorded them In a developing bull "'"ark. The early speculation waa unsettled by a r'" torther sharp decline In Manhattan Ball way. Simultaneously Metropolitan Traction Jumped np 8 points, but. It should be added, did not hold that Improvement to the close. The trading In Manhattan Railway waa unusu ally heavy, the transactions In It being second only to those in Northern I's , elfin oommon. It dropped nearly 3 points from the final price of yesterday, and at a frac tional recovery sustained a net loss of 2 cent. There was no news affecting the value of the property, hence It seems fair to Infer that the steady and decided decrease In the earnings of the company as compared with a year ago is beginning to bring long i i stook upon the market. That the company Is making strenuous efforta to minimize the effect upon net earnings of this falling off In gross receipts is shown by the obvious econo mies recently Introduced In the operation of i the property. The only other noteworthy net declines were those in C, C ( '. and St. Louis, on the reported abandonment for the present, at least, of ne gotiations for ths absorption by the company of competing lints. In American Cotton CHI, In the Paclflo Coast stocks. In Mew York Air Brake and In Consolidated Gas. The decline In all of these except the last named la fully explained by the fact that the speculation in them haa been active and rampant. A further net de- dine In Consolidated Oas brought confirmation of current reports of an open rupture between the four local gaa companies, namely, the Con solidated, the New Amsterdam, the Standard. Mid the Mutual. The news of serious diaagree , fnent between these corporations confirms the belief that has existed for a long timo that there has been an explicit, though perhaps In formal, agreement among them as to terri tory, output, and competition : in other words, that they have been practically pooling their business. It Is understood that charges of bad - ' faith in carrying out the pooling agreement are now made, and lively competition between the I companies is not improbable. In fact, has already begun. It Is possible, should the pres ent condition of affairs reach an acute stage, that It will be found that the way baa been . paved for the establishment of closer relations than ever before between the various Interests supplying the borough of Manhattan with gas. The advocates of higher prices were greatly encouraged by the revival of speculative en thusiasm In Northern Paclflo common. That stock led the list in respect to activity and closed at nearly the top prioe. whloh was IK - oent. above the final figure of yesterday. I a The Street, or at least a large part of it. per sists In believing that the Northern Paotflo. . Company is likely to dealers a dividend upon Its common stock this fall. Though the profits of the company are exceedingly gratifying, none of Its directors or officials, so far as can be learned, encourages the view re ferred to above. People's Oas waa another ex ceptionally strong stock, and the trading in It waa extensive. The advance in It took plane In the face of authoritative statements that the .. controversy between the company and the Indiana Natural Oas Company haa not been settled, and also In face ot the publication of belligerent and even threaten ing statements alleged to have been made by those interested in the Indiana Natural Oaa Company. The broadening tendency of the market waa noticeable In American Spirits, Chicago and Eastern Illinois issues, Chicago Terminal Transfer preferred. Consolidated Ioe. Minnesota Iron. Illinois Steel, and Standard , Bope and Twine. All of the securities of the last-named company were dealt In more ' extensively than for a long time past, its 0 V ' cent bonds advancing more than 3 points. There were indications of a reviving demand for American Halting Issues, owing to the be lief that the annual statement of the company will show nearly 2 cent, earned upon the common stock, although the company when formed, a year ago, had to take over several million bushels of product from Its constituent concerns and dispose of the same for their ac count. According to advices from Chicago, which certainly have the merit of being plausible, the , consolidation of the Minnesota Iron and Illi nois Steel companies and the absorption of the Johnson Iron Company by the new corporation , are the first steps in a programme that contem plates the eventual concentration with these enterprises of the more important Iron and .. steel plants in Pennsylvania, Alabama and jc ' Colorado. The activity in Chicago and Eastern : '.' ' Illinois Issues directed attention to the possible part that the property upon which 'they are 1 ; , based may play in the extension of the " Big f Your" system, partly because of the traffic it controls and also because of its exceptional terminal facilities in Chicago. Irrespective ot these possibilities, the company haa just pub lished a satisfactory annual report, and recent ly placed Its common stock upon a dividend paying basis. The closing was in the main Steady, with the majority of prices down to or slightly below the final figures of yesterday.
