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.

Wet weather at the Weat delayed thrashing, and
talk of famine In Ruaala aa wall aa aome covering of
local ahorta caused a rally in wheat after the open

timate, the winter recelpta were relatively small,
and there was some foreign buying, moatly by the
Continent. The Northwest and St. Louie boqgbt

the primary recelpta reached an aggregate or
U71.O00 bnah., or only 16,000 leaa than last

only 174 last year. Chicago received only 145
car., against 91 laat week and 220 last year.

Md. to Md. Antwerp was easier, though Paria ad

lower, with a 2c. break in August. Corn moved in

owing to a rise in Chicago, where there was renewed
talk of hot wlnda in Iowa and Nebraaka. One mil
lion bush, were chartered yesterday at Chicago,
there waa a good expoit demand at the out
ports and Liverpool advanced HA. to 14d.
But liquidation later on carried prices down
ward, and the last flgurea showed a fractional
in., for tlie d.y. Oats closed somewhat easier at tho
West. Report, of damage In Ohio and Indiana by
wet weather, however, prevented any marked de
cline. Chicago. Aug. 24. "Wheat advanced Ha
above yesterday's prices, but closed with the advance
lost. The demand waa from local and St. Louis
ahorta. When their wants were supplied there waa
nothing left to sustain the price. Advice, from tho

Foreign and local buying, higher cablea, and moder
ate ncelpts sent rotter prices npwsrd. Some of the
bulla take the ground that the crop la not over 8.6OO.
0O0 bags. Others think a conservstive climate
would be 9,500,000, against 10.600.000 last year.
Estimates have been received from llrarll of late of
aa high aa 10,600,000 to 11,000.000, but they have
not been seriously regarded. The future course of
the market, It la argued, wilt depend upon the re
ceipts at Bio and Santos and the character of the
flowering season. From a source in Brazil consid
ered to be entitled to endence It is learned that the
quality of tho current crop promises to be equal
to that of last year. The ncrlpla of Bio
and Santoa laat week wen 262,000 baga. against
31)4,000 for the ssme week lsst year snd 11111,000 in
the year before. Recelpta run 3.1M V cent, less
than last year and 1UIM more than In lHBfl, when tho
crop waa 8,710.000 bags. For this week but
rear the ncelpts wen 410,000 bags, which no
body expects to see equalled dnr.ng the present
week. Hnvreanci Paris, lapeclallr Paris, aeem mon
