Friday, Dec. 6?0 P. M. J
The Ave hours of wear and tear to body and wind
Which constitute the so-called day's business upon
the Stock Exchange were productivo this morning of
very meagre results, both as regards the magnitude)
of transactions and the sharpness of fluctuations. In
fact, the two or three prominent points upon which
speculation has pivoted for a week or two hack have
been blunted by the events of yesterday and are no
longer serviceable for speculative purposes, Refer
ence is had to the Northwestern dividends, to the
meeting of the coal companies' .Board of Control and
to the Convention of ltailwuy Managers. Decisions
nioro or less satisfactory having been arrived
At by theae various interests the lingering
uncertainty which hal fostered speculation
ceased to exist, and the market grew dull
and vapid from a withdrawal of the pabu
lum which had kept it alive. There was enough
stamina stored up, however, to give an inclination
to prices either one way or the other. The official
report of the Northwestern Railway Company can
tot be construed otherwise than as being highly
favorable now and most promising for the future,
uid it helped to hold prices firmly to-day lu spite of
rigorous efforts made by the bear party to depress
(hem. The unanimity expressed by the railroad
managers at the meeting last evening as to pooling
arrangements and the strong safeguards adopted to
prevent any future tampering with freight sched
ules were also potent in giving tone to the railway
market. While tho grangers, after an interlude of
Strength, were forced to close no better titan thoy bod
opened. Lake Shore benefited to tho extent of one
per cent. This, too, despite a recurrence of the
sharp practice of "rigging" quotations, which we
have had occasion more than once to comment upon.
Tho cose in point hai>p<med in this wiseTho clos
ing prico of Lake Shore last evening was C8?;. Noth
ing occurred during the night to lessen this value
in fact, the action of the railroad conference tended
to appreciate it?yot at the opening this morning some |
half dozen brokers wero charged to offer the stock at 1
?W?;, which was done, though there were orders present
to purchase at higher rates. The trick succeeded, how
ever, and an official record of a sham quotation was
Secured, to the wctriiucnt of holders whoso margins
were wiped out, and to the dissemination far and wide {
of a false value to the stock. While the railroad
meetings worked beneficially that of the coal
companies' Board of Control worked tho reverse.
The action taken, or, more correctly, the ab
aeuco of all action, as to tho renewal of the
combination, is regardod as primit facie evidence
that the monopoly will expire with the
dying year. It is understood that the Lehigh
Valley people will stick to their demands for a larger
quota and that the other companies will refuse to
concede them. It is a case of E Plurtinu Unum,
which, being freely rendered, means that between the
two stools the combination is likely to fall to the
ground. The one chance left is that Mr. Packer may,
before the *J7th of December, surrender bit position
and stack arms?to tho best of our inform atlon Mr
Packer will do nothing of the sort. Closing prices in
the general market were nothing to brag of, being
altogether irregular and in most cases only a shade
removed from the opening ones.
