NEW YORK, July 0.?Interest and discussion
In Wall street this morning wore
rather more occupied with tomorrow's
events than with those of today. Included
In tKa * * ? 1' 1 ?
... ...i .ir?au*7a **iii uc me niuiiuiiy j;overnment
report upon the condition of the cereal
crops, the tlnal date for .tiie return oi the
remainding I30.000.0UU of treasury funds deposited
with the banks last autumn, the
final day for the payment of the initial subscription*
on the Union Pacific bond Issua
and the opening of the settlement upon
the Ivondon stock exchange.
The most striking items In this morning's
news were made up of the intelligence with
regard to the new methods to be followed
by the government In the anti-trusts prosecution
and the decision of the federal court
in tut- preliminary proceedings against trie
Interborough MetropIIttan merger. The Intentions
of the department pending the decision
of the court of last resort were not,
it might be said, tuken very seriously.
StiK a disagreeable impression was produced
by the intelligence In question, as
In the light of recent speeches by the President
It had been taken for granted that
the activities of the administration would
hereafter be directed toward preventing ,
future abuses rattier than toward investigating
and prosecuting alleged evils of the
past
Securities of the American Tobacco i
Company, the corporation to be first deal* I
Wth. were heavy today, and the Interborough-Metropolltan
stocks declined
also In connection with the decision of
the federal court, which was really announced
yesterday, but which received
greater publicity in this morning's newspapers.
The Treasury and the Banks.
There -was much curiosity and interest
aa to me way in which the conflicting
transactions between the Treasury Department
and the banks and the other
holders of the matured 4 per cent bonds
would be adjusted. Of these bonds about
$23,0OlMM>O were still outstanding at the
opening of business this morning, while,
on the other hand, the banks have returned
to the treasury only about
OOO of the 5a0,tMX?,0w to be repaid by tomorrow.
Thus far the slow p'resentatlon of matured
4 per cent bonds for redemption
has not had any satisfactory explanation
At the same time today's monev
market was surprisingly easy In view
o" the large transactions in question, and,
In fact, the rate for call loans averaged
nrotmd yesterday's mean figures. Conditions
in the foreign exchange market
showed little alteration.
The London stock market was dull and
generally heavy lr. advance of th? fortnightly
settlement upon the stock exchang-'.
but operations here for foreign account
were confined to the sale of not more
than 10.tn.l0 shares.
Cross-Currents in Evidence.
Dealings in the local stock market
m?jy cu manj ui nit; same cross-currents
which were observed yesterday. Further
covering of short contracts was conducted
Ja come directions, and renewed operations
for the short account In others.
The avowed sponsor for the recent advance
in the market was heard from again,
but Ills remarks were as little convincing
as heretofore, and apparently he and his
associates were disposed to allow the
ket to give some definite reflection of the
testa to which it Is now being subjected.
The relative strength of St. Paul and
Amalgamated Copper was naturally a matter
of ?nna comment, particularly as copper
metal und copper stocks were notably
weak In London.
THE COTTON MARKETS.
i
NEW TURK, July 9.?The cotton market
ww. .v. uv u uci iiuc ui iai points in
response to lower cables and reports of
beneficial rains In Texas. Trading wad
moderately active, and there seemed to be
m good demand at the decline both for the
covering shorts and fresh long account.
Reactionists were encouraged, however, by
the expectation that the detailed weather
reports would show that the showers in the
southwest had been quite general and that
the weekly weather bureau ut midday would
be bearish, and the market showed irregularity
during the early session, with prices
during the middle of the morning about
unchanged to 2 points lower. Leading bull*

The market was very quiet In the late
forenoon, but ruled steady on private wires,

had been too light to materially help
lh<? i nip Prices at midday were about 3 to
4 Mints net higher cm the active months.

legislation reducing the price of gas to

appealed to the District courts for permission
to Increase its capital stock to an
amount which would be equal to the value

NEW YORK. July !?.?Unless the outlook
for money becojnes decidedly more favorable
In the near future It la believed that
there will not be much genuine buying of
stocks, except by Investors throughout the
country who undoubtedly will be attracted
by the large dividend return on the leading
securities. Their purchases, while of
the odd-lot variety, may l? large In the
aggregate and consequently constitute a
factor of no little importance In the general
market situation. From present Indications
the rates for money will be too
high to warrant the large speculators buying
extensive linos on margin. It la ac
knowledge*!, of course, that If the oaa-iot
buying becomes noteworthy ths market
will be very materially helped anil be In a
position to advance considerably further
later on If money becomes more abundant.

Prominent railroad interests are now
reasonably confident that this year's crops
will be well up to the average on the whole,
and-that the traffic of the railroads is not
likely to show much diminution for the
rest of this year or during the early part
of next year. As a result of these indications
they are not a little apprehensive as
to how they will secure the money needed
to provide facilities for the handling of this
traffic.

A prominent Rock Island official said this
morning that In his opinion the recent estimate
ot a 70,000,COO-bushel wheat crop In
Kansas is too optimistic, and that If the
actual yield Is OO.OUO.UOO bushels it should
be regarded as satisfactory. He says that
authorities In the south, with whom he has
talked recently, believe that the cotton crop
will be better than most estimates have Indicated.

Repairs to River Tugs.
The United States army quartermaster
department tug Lieut. Alzono Cushlng,
which has been at a Baltimore shipyard
undergoing general repairs for a month or
longer, returned to service on the river
between this city and Forth Washington
yesterday morning and will now make
dally trips from the forts to this city and
return. The tug. under command nf rant
Thomas Todd, sailed from Baltimore about
4 o'clock last Sunday morning and at 10
o'clock Sunday night she was tied up at
the wharf at Fort Washington ready to
go on her route. The steam yacht Mandalay
of Baltimore, which was In service
between the forts and this city during the
absence of t'le Cushlng, has sailed for Baltimore
from Fort Washington. While at
the shlpyp.rtf the boiler and machinery of
the tug were placed In thorough order
and her house and hull received needed
attention. She was also painted from
Btem to stern and presents a handsome
appearance. The Cushlng Is used for the
transportation of the officers and men stationed
at the forts to and from this city
and also to carry all supplies to the forts,
and she has plenty of work to do.
The United States army quartermaster
department's frteam launch Mercedes,
which has been laid tin for several mnniiu
past at the Washington barracks pier, has
returned to service on the river. The
Mercedes is doing duty as a tender to the
Engineer Battalion stationed at Washington
barracks'. She was once a tender to
the Spanish cruiser Reina Mercedes and
was captured aboard that ship at Santiago.
At tho close of the war with Spain she
was sent to this city and was for a year
or two used by high officials In the War
Department for pleasure purposes. I^ater
she was idle for several yeara and about
a year ago was assigned to her preaent
duty. She is a handsome little craft and
one of the fastest boats of her kind on
duty about the local harbor.
AGAINST NAVAL BATTALION
DECISION 07 THE ACTING SECBETARY
Or WAR.
Local Tars Not Entitled to Payment
TT_ J A i.ii a._ .
unusr Appropriation ior juiioa
Encampment With Regulars.
Acting Secretary Oliver of the War Department
today decided that the Naval
Battalion of the National Guard of the
District of Columbia Is not entitled to any
of the benefits of the appropriation of
<1,000,000 made in the act approved March
?, ror- "encampments of organised
mllttia with troops of the regular army."
In this action he followed the opinion of
Col. Porter, acting judge advocate general
of the army. ?
In an elaborate review of the laws bearing
on the subject. Col. Porter says that
Congress apparently does not recognize the
naval mllttia as part of the land force of
the United States, and has Invariably provided
for It separately.
In'.general legislation. Congress. he
says, has observed a strict line of demarcation
between the land force on the one
hand, which is assimilated to the army,
and the sea force on the other, which is assimilated
to the navy. He says that he Is
forced to the conclusion that the District
Naval Battalion is not a part of that force
which Congress had in mind when it made
the appropriation in the act of March 2,
15)07, for "encampments of organized militia
with the troops of the regular army."
Col. Porter's Conclusions.
The specific conclusions of the acting
Judge advocate general are as follows:
' First?That the Naval Battalion of the
District of Columbia militia Is not entitled
to participate in the benefits of section 14
of the act of Congress approved January
21, U03. as set forth in paragraph 3 of the
within copy of General Orders No. 8, headquarters
District of Columbia militia, since
the maneuvers thereunder are being held
under section 15 of the said act.
"Second?That the Naval Battalion of the
District of Cnlnmhift la nril- pntUM tn nnv
I as proposed from the appropriation for
'encampments of the organized militia with
troops of the regular army, 1007 and 1908.'
because I am aware of the opinion that
Congress In that legislation had in view
solej.v that aortlon of the mllltla assimilated
to the army, and did not contemplate
payment to the naval mllltla.
"No questioning can, however, arise over
the payment of the Naval Battalion out of
the moneys appropriated by Congress for
the District in the act of March 2. 1907,
w 11 ic it specincaay provides for practice
cruises."
This decision of the War Depatment. it
was thought by some today, might prevent
the execution of a plan contemplated by
Gen. Harries, commanding the District
Militia. to have the Naval Battalion participate
in the joint coast defense exercises
at Forts Washington and Hunt, on the
Potomac next week, but Col. Brett, adjutant
general of the District of Columbia
Militia, said today that it is optional with
Gen. Harries to use the $15,000 available
under thA a/?t nf Mor/>v? o ? *1?

FRANCO-GERMAN ENTENTE.
Pichon's Speech Finds a Responsive
Chord in Germany.
BERLIN, July 9.?The German press Is
In general In favor of the growing sentiment
for the improvement in the relations
between France and Germany evidenced In
the recent speech of M. Plchon, the French
foreign minister, in the chamber of deputies
at Paris. The approval of the government
also is apparent from a semi-official
note published yesterday In the Nord
Deutscher Allgemelne Zeitung. This article
says:
"Tha ?! )< Koo !??? - -?

thinking German political circles that discussion
of the clearly defined questions occasionally
arising between the two powers
should take place In France, also without
passion and according to their real merits.
"The friendly tone in which M. Pichon
referred to the Franco-German relations is
appreciated and reciprocated here. Understandings
arding mooted questions arising
from time to time can very well be

tereats of any country or the ententes and
conventions existing between France or
Germany and third parties. If this conviction
grows on both sides, there will be established
spontaneously between the two
powers a more favorable atmosphere,
which will facilitate to a great degree the
settlement of many questions."

PART OF COXPIiAINT RUXED OUT.
Judge Regards Certain Allegations in
Gould Suit Irrelevant or Scandalous. !!
NEW YORK, July 9.?Supreme Court Justice
McCall yesterday rendered a decision ^
by which he granted the application of Delancey
Nicoll. attorney for Howard Gould. 1
to ha\*e stricken from the complaint of Mrs. ]
Gould In her suit for divorce several paragraphs
containing alleged scandalous matter.
Justice McCall granted Mr. Nlcoll's
application In regard to a section referring
to Mr. Gould having obtained "illicit and
immoral relations with divers women of bad
character and conducted himself In this respect
so openly and notoriously as to insult
and humiliate and bring shame and
contumely uuon the nlatntifr "
The Justice also ordered the following
stricken out: "That In August, l'jud, the de
fendant caused his agent, one Maurice Mol- 1
loy, to change the lock upon the mall bag
used by plaintiff for the transmission of
plaintiff's mall, received at the post office
at Port Washington, L>. I., and procured
and caused said Molloy to open, read and r
Intercept sealed letters addressed to plaintiff
and to report to the defendant the
contents of same."
The paragraph that Justice McCall refused
to strike out reads: "For more than
two years prior to the commencement of
this action the defendant caused the plaintiff
to be constantly surrounded in the
plaintiff's home and wherever sojourned tiy
spies and detectives, whose surveillance of
the plaintiff was a harassing annoyance, a
wanton and open Insult and humiliation of
the plaintiff and was so maliciously calculated
and intended by the defendant."
Justice McCall ruled that this was not
irrelevant or scandalous and denied the
application in this instance.
