? ft -Wro-as-AY, March 1.
I m Thero was ft further falling oft In the volume
I j of business on tho fltocExclinngo to-Jay nnd
1 If ttlao r further Jeollno lo price. The net re-
I II cults of tho retrograde movoment, howover,
1 J wero not quite as goneral as yesterday, nor
I i were they as pronounced. The moraine's
f H news regarding the situation at Manila
f h not only disposed of yestarday's canard
1 if. of a collision between tho Amortcan and
-V K German forces, but contained tho gratify
fl Ins intelligence of exceedingly amlcablo re
V 8' latlons botwoen tho two Governments. This
& P development tallod to stlmulato tho London
i market for American securities nnd had oo ra
ti " paratlvely littlo effect horo. Tho oarly lm-
I provoment In prices apnearod to result chiefly
,1 from manipulation and the covering of somo
f, t ofthoshorlsputoutycstorday. Thatthebuylng
'H was not of tho most substantial charnotor was
Jj ( shown by tho action of tho market during the
'j I Mlddloofthoday, when prlcos reacted sharply
3 under selling that appoared to bo chiefly by
i'L professionals. 0., B. nnd Qulnoy was consplo
J ' L uously weak nt a docllno of 2X points from
3 'j the highest prlco. A number of other stocks
3 i yielded 2 points, whllo recessions of 1 cent.
II or more woro not uncommon. At tho extreme
f decllno somo good buying mode Its nppear
S I stneo and In conscquonco prlcos ralllod frao
s f, tlonally In the last hour, giving an nppearanco
J1 of firmness nt tho closo.
, Although tho volumo of trading was the
2 smallest In a numbor of days past, tho illstrl
I button was unusually woll maintained. Only
f two stocks wore exceptionally notlvo, nnmely,
f I , Atchison proforrod and C 15. and Qulney. To
S 1 ' nether they suppllod only about 20 V cont.
I ; '. of tho total transactions. Other foatures
f f Iri v tho railway list woro Texas Ta
t elflc, whloh was exceptionally strong, nnd
S :j f Union and Southern raciflc, which on light
( transactions sustained tho only noteworthy
l net losses recorded. Tho selling of tlioso
? I stocks appeared to be chiefly by sranll spoc-
8; ulators whu failed to take advantago of tho re-
1 cont sharp advancei in thoso stocks. Tho In-
a. dnstrlsl group madon rather bettor showing
W than tho railway list. American Steel and
I H' Wire issues not only recovered from tho
Iff midday reaction, but closed fractionally
0 higher than last night. This was truo of
Ej Sugar Iteflnlng also, American Tobacco
H' jumped up l points from yesterday's
Ml final price, but subsequently l09t tho
(K greater part of tho improvement; still. It
iff closed lli V cent, higher thnn yesterday.
j', Thoro was n rovhal of Interest In Amortcan
I 1 Bplrlts, resulting from tho improvement In the
I jr. financial condition of the company. Having
1 I disposed of certain properties not required In
i . its business, tho company has pnld oft all of Its
L floating indebtodness, and has in Its treasury,
' for the first tlmoln months, ample working
SK, capital. American Maltlnglssueswerostrongon
ffi. tho absorption of two or three competing
, plants, as noted In detail further on in this
fJKp column. Consolidated Gas fluctuated widely,
iMl advancing 0 points nnd finishing with a net
IB train of "I. Another noteworthy net advance
ijHi was that of nearly 2 points in Philadelphia
9 Company's stook. 1'orolgn arbitrage houses
W took comparati ely littlo interest in tho spocu-
jM'- Jatlon, trading moderately for both accounts.
-B!f The motit encouraging development of tho day
", was the greater aotivlty in tho bond market at
K advancing prices. Thn extent of tho demand
Vr for Investment securities may be Inforred from
,Bj' tho fact that tho block of S4.000.000 of Phlla-
i delphla Company bonds reeently offered In
S this city were subscribed for eight times oor,

Thero la no denying that there baa been somo man
ipulation of lato In the Interost of lower prlcos for
cotton. There la nothing surprising shout this.
Such things aro done at the Htock Exchange, Pro
duce Exchange and the Chicago Hoard of Trade
every day, and the fact excites no comment. Hut It
la lust aa certain that ttinouierattons for a rail have
thusfarproted futile. The reason la that themajor
tty of operators and merchants rogard the poal
tlon as bullish, and on anv decline there la buy
ing on a acale which checka tho receatlon very
much, aa buying against "pitta" often ohecka
a decline In the grain markets: only tho cot
ton buying Is far more Important. Cotton Blocks
araabnndautandmuchof the supply hero is of low
grade, which could not be tendered on contracta In
l.horpool. lint tho certificates aro negotiable here.
1 hey answer every purposo of speculative trading,
and besides the stock lu this market, though alowly
increasing, la still v cry email In fact, the smallest
at this time formany ears past. Tho abort Intor
est, too. for F.uropean account is still vrry large,
amounting, perhaps, to l.f.QO.OOO. While this Is not.
In the strictest sense, a short Interest, being In the
form of " hedges," yet it amounts to pretty much
the same thing to all intents and pill posca, and at
any rate la considered a distinctly bullish
feature of the market. Meanwhile the reoeipts
at tho ports and the interior tnwne in
aplto of the improed weather conditions at tho
South continue small. For example, the porta re
ceived about 3,100 leeato day than a week ato, while
they wero considerably less than half what thev
wore on thla day last year, to-day's arrhala being
10,1100. agslust nearly 25 000 on this dny lu 18WS
Again, the New Orleans eatlmato for to morrow was
only one tenth to one fifth the quantity received ou
the corresponding day last ear. Memphis arrivals
were practically the same as a week ago and nearly
1,1500 lose than on thla doy last l car. The Houston
receipts wero een moro strikingly Interesting,
being 400 less thon a week ago aud not
one tenth as large aa a 3 ear ago. It Is littlo
wonder under the circumstances that crop estimates
are being reduced and are now on tho aerage about
IO.COO.000 to 10,000.000 bales. Bomo are looking
for slightly lncrcaaed receipta aa u reault of the bet
ter wcjther, but we hae had pretty good weather
for some daya now, and yet there Is a striking dia
parity between the arrh als of to da , and not merely
those of last year, but also thoso nf last week,
though It la not denied that tho '..lal amount to be
brought Into sight tbleweek may, oy reason of an
addition to Norfolk's htock of 83.000 tulea lu tho
monthly correction, approxlmato 170,000 bales,
against 111,(00 last week, but, even to, there
would be a decreaso us compared with Inst jear
of r.2.000 bales aud the deficit on the crop at the end
of the week will be. it would aeem. about 2J0 000
bales, as compared with laat J ear. Meanwhile, 1 ju
cashlro appeara to be losing faith In the high crop
estimates, for It has renewed lie purchases lu I.tvcr-
Iiool on a liberal scale, the apot sales thero to dav
lelng 12,000 bales at atiaily prices, though futures
declined model ately. Then, too, print clntha con
tinue strong on a brisk demand Wages of opera
tives have been ndvamed lu thla country and there
la nn reason to doubt that thev will be advanced In
Kngland In coiupltanco with the demand of the
operatives, since trade ia in altogether too prosjerous
a condition to admit or the posdbllit) of a strike.
New outside bu ing was reported ou the small crop
movetueut and aome of the shorts covered in tho
niarmouths. loreign political news waa more fa
vorable, the canard about a fight with tne ciermaim
at Manila having been exploded; the international
aituatinu there has apparently Improved, and Iremh
reutes iu two dav a liavo risen .IK centimes, which re
flects a more traluiull atate of public feeling In
