ThU rally waa ap aaraniTr aatlafactory to tha oparatora who virtually oontrol tha market eourse lot agar Refining, for heavy aalaa lowered the prloe 4M polnta bafora 1 o'oloak. Tbara waa a natural rebound from thla Bp(salan. bat In pit of It tha atook etoSed matarlallr lower than reetordar. Tha effect upon tha general marketof tha enormoui tranaaetlona and wide fluctuation In flugar fining U to reatrlot peculation. It la par ttetrr wall understood that the sugar refining , tsduetry la object to development, both prea aat and prospective, that hare no bearing poo tha market for railway shares or aren npoa that for othar Industrial Issues. At tha game time, many dealers In atooka are Inclined to keen out of tha market or to trade upon a Tary amall seal for either account, because thay are fearful of a break oraeharp rise In Bugar Refining that might temporarily demor allaa the erirTre Hat Moreover, tha faot la ppraetated that open hostilities between the American Sugar Refining Company and Ma- competitors have not ret begun, and until that eeemlnglr Impending fight takes place mall oparatora consider caution the better ipart of valor. They have, therefore, reduced their" risks and are cautious In making new Tentnrea. In brief, business on the Stock Er -change la being ourtkUed pending the conclu aion of one of tha vigorous oampalgna by those whose power, knowledge and skill en able them to virtually ahapa the market eours of tha principal Industrial stock. Too much confidence should not be placed neon the. faot that open hostilities between competing interests in tha sugar refining ln dustry have not yet begun. Trade conditions do'not warrant aggressive action at tha mo ment Moreover, the effect of all the new oom petltfon la not yet fait An Interesting state ment waa published to-day that the owners of tha Doeoher refinery will never dispose of their nearly completed plant to the American Bugar Refining Company, though they may be willing to make an agreement with It aa to prioe. While tbla policy, which would be a money-making one. might for obvious reasons be adopted by the new, ooncern. It la exceedingly doubtful whether It would be acquiesced in by the American Company, which, waa formed for the purpose of practi cally controlling the industry. It Is possible, therefore, that before permanent peace la es tablished the entire business may be reduced to the condition that ezlated before the Ameri can flugar Refining Company waa organized; and that condition, it will be remembered, made ay consolidation' of the then competing lnteresta Imperative. in the railway list interest centred In Union Pacific preferred, because the speculative rank and file appeared to be In doubt aa to the amount of the dividend that waa declared upon that stock thla afternoon. Shortly before the dividend waa announced a rumor Was circulated In the board that no dis tribution of profits would be made, and In consequence Union Pacific preferred mM dropped IS cent, from the highest price. The declaration of IK V cent was a disappoint ment only to the few small speculators and pro , f esslonal oparatora who had Ignored the trust worthy information whioh the Street generally has had for aome time past, that the msnage- Iment of the company would pursue a conserva tive course in placing both the common and preferred shares upon a substantial dividend-paying basis. The statement of the operation of the reorganized Union Paciflo system for the six months ending June 30, which is printed further on in this column, shows that the net profits for that period were equal to nearly 3 cent upon the preferred stock, and that the company, after paying tha dividend declared to-day. will carry forward a surplus of over $1,000,000. For the current alz months the company, now that its system has been' rounded out by the acquisition of nuoh branch lines aa It seemed desirable to acquire. and also because of the crop movement will probably make a showing that may justify the management in placing the stock upon a4 ant basis, while at the same time maintaining tha conservative policy that governed it action to-day. The Indications are that a good deal of Union Paciflo preferred haa recently been sold for both accounts by operators of all grades, who had hoped for the declaration of a 3 V cent dividend at thla time. Thla view waa cor roborated to an extent by the steadi ness of tha market for the atook In the anal dealings. Other feature of the market wen American Cotton Oil common, which waa exceptionally strong, on expectations of a dividend. Brooklyn Rapid Transit and General Electric, all of which closed considerably higher than yesterday. On the other hand. Manhattan Hallway, after ad vandlng above par chiefly on the covering of gnmwa. declined nearly 8 polnta. People's Oaa waa weak, and the Northern Paoiflo stocks were heavy. Tha Granger stocks were compara tively' Arm ; but the dealings in them were un usually light Although the majority of the llat atoaed fractionally lower than yesterday, a number of tha usually inactive atooka made progress In the opposite direction, notably Con solidated Oaa. Brooklyn Union Oaa, Cleveland. Lorain and Wheeling common, Metropolitan Street Railway and American Malting Issues. The money market was lower owing to free offerings of call money by two Institutions and br- a prominent California railroad capitalist who haa invariably been a borrower. It Is stated that he haa recently marketed a block of bond abroad, and presumably, pending aome new commitment, he la employing the proceeds in the local money market Bates for call money war also affected by the receipt of $450,000 gold from abroad, the engagement of $1,300. 000 tor shipment to thla oonntry. tha arrival of $3,000,000 at San Francisco from Australia, and the oontlauous movement of money from Boston. Philadelphia and Western financial oentraa to thla city. It la to be noted that at Chicago exchange on Haw Tork command a premium of 10 cent per thanaand. Thla condition of affairs has emboldened aome large local borrowers to en deavor to manipulate the money market In the direction of lower rates. Operations of that oharaeter are likely to prove futile, because tha banks, while they have exerted themselves to keep the market from becoming stringent will Bow endeavor to build up their depleted re serve, and tha only way they oan do so Is by oontraottng their accommodation. The advance In the Bank of England' mini mum rate of discount and a further hardening of private discount at London had aome effect upon the market for eight aterhng, but does not appear to have checked mShr.fr?u?ohv: men S gold aluoe jtbeganon Aug.
