Friday, Feb. 11?6 P. M. I
The stock markot to-day, for the sake of similo, was
ts much like a Third aveuue car on an early trip down
town as anything wc can liken It to. One seat was
jammed with bears, the other scat jammed with bulls,
and the doubling ones bung on to the straps in the
middle. Thai is to Bay, the bull and bear interest was
about equally divided as to an opinion of the market,
while a crowd of petty dealers halted between two
opinions, and, without rhyme or reason, was ready to
drop Into tho first vacant seat offering. But the bulls
and bears were settled for the wnolc trip and the strappists
swayed to and fro, with never a chance to better
their condition, and the journey finished as It had
So did the stock market, and there was never a
clianco lor an outsider to gain a dollar over and above
(awful commissions paid. Traders who had to pay this
toll found, as a general rale, tnat brokers weft plus
(heir commission, while they wero minus a corresponding
loss There was not an eighth euch way to spare,
with anything to the good left to tho operator. In a
word, except to regular Board members, who pay no
commission, there was no chance of gain to the outsider.
The course of the market was confined to a
fractional fluctuation, and the interest in the same roiuced
to quite as Darrow bounds.
Opening strong under the impulse of lost night's
3rm quotations the list at first showod every evidence
of an upward turn, but the slrongth was apparently
spasmodic, lor soon prices began to hositate and then
to droop nuder considerable realizations.
Afterward tho necessity of some one putting his
ihoulder to the wheel became apparent, and the power
was applied accordingly with the result of restoring the
choorful feeling of the morning and closing up the
market at about the opening and best prices of tho day.
Northwest common and preferred showod the most
decided advance and continued it steadily on to the
end, while Its side partner, St. Paul, as if It were satisfied
with the rise of the past tow days, gracefully
yieiaoa mo pat ana vu oontonioa to uoiu us own at
<lrm and steady prices to tho end.
Among the other speculative shares Pacific Mail
exhibited tbo only noticeable change, which, though
fractional, pointed to higher IIgurus. The prominent
coal stocks, which, by vole of investors, are removed
from the usual speculative lists, have manifested a
marked decline both In sharcB and bonds these last few
days, which has excltod remark. It is probable that
this weakness arises from tho fact that tho well-known
combination or association of the anthracite coal companies
Is now in convention in tho city of ltiiladelphia
The five powerful corporations which constitute this
congress have met together to lay out a
programme for the next season, which is compassed
by the opening and close of navigation for
the year 1876. They havo been obliged to recognize
the falling off in their trade in tho matter of iron furnaces
out ol blast and mills and manufactories closed,
and they are not insensible to the growing competition
of tho bituminous coal fields ol Pennsylvania. Realizing
the condition of things, these gentlemen, representatives
of the companies, are putting their long
heads together, ana tho impression prevails that for the
coming six months "black diamonds" will bs purchasable
at least 20 per cent below contract prices of
last year.
Beyond this little stir in coal matters nothing has
occurred to-day to invite special oomment, and Stock
Exchange mailers may he dismissed with the general
remark that the market closod strong and with a generally
confident fooling.

lowest prices of the day

There was no confirmation of the reports circulated ^
yesterday that the pool lines of railroads oast from 5
Chicago wero likely to sottle the impending fight. The 1
report Is supposed to have grown out of the fact that 1
the Northern llues In the pools have held several pri- y
vale moellngs, the occasion of which la supposed to G
have been that those llues have finally discovered that e
the "pool" was working In such a manner as to divert J
buainoss awar from Chicago, and therefore to the moro I
Southern railroads, particularly to the Baltimore and 4
Ohio road.

is froui Mr. Emmet Wells' circular of February II :?
There has been a temporary check to toe export movement
caused by the advance quoted last week Shippers
contend there in no money iu the business when the pries
goes abovu 16 cent" here, and we are iuclioed to think they
are about right, for there has been no ndvauce lately in
the price of American bops in London, coiiHequeiiily
every cent added on to the price here affects the
profits of the shipper. The advance to 17c. in this market
seems t" hare been band entirely noo the growing soared i
ot tine hop* Should this unco result in a pormaut nt < h<-> k
to the shipning trade, bolder* might deem it expedient to
moderate their views a little, if for no other purpose than to
keep the export ball moving, tor tliis movement really is the
nly life to the trade. An advance in the BAM M
American hops iu London would be felt here
very suddenly and very perceptibly, but until such
advance takes place we think holders will we
the policy of keeping the price at a point where shipper* tan
at leaat get their money back. Large profit* arc not crav ed,
but the shipper feels that he at least earn* bin commission,
since he alone has to take all the chances. A good proper
tion of the fancy growth of hont referred to in lam circular
has been sola at 25c. per lb. Receipt* and export*.?
