SOME RAILS UNDER PRESSURE "t. Paul, Union Pacific and Lehigh Valley Object of Bear Attack, I Which Later Ceases. i! NEW YORK, June 25.?Fractional de clines In the active list were general at the 'opening: of today's stock market. The heaviness extended to the various copper Issues. The only exception to the yielding tendency was American Snuff, which rose over a point. Aside from a twenty-five-point advance in one of the tobacco Issues and a two point decline in Wabash preferred, the only noteworthy feature of the first hour ] was its absolute stagnation. Beading Is Conspicuous. Records for dullness were eclipsed in today's early market. Heaviness was more general than yesterday, w|th Reading again the most conspicuous ] feature In the speculative group. St. Paul. Union Pacific and Lehigh Valley were under pressure, with increased | weakness in Wabash issues. Can was the weakest of the industrials, and the uncertain status of the copper market was seen In the drooping tendency of the metal shares, which spread to steel. Politics and Industrial unrest were not without their depressing influences, and conflicting crop reports served as an additional factor. Bonds were steady. Pressure Ceases at Midday. Pressure ceased at midday and there ] was a slow recovery, which reduced de clines in most Instances to small frac tions.* Norfolk and Western was In ex ceptional demand and Improved a point. The same narrow fluctuations marked the second hour of the afternoon with increasing dullness. The market was rather easier during | the early afternoon, owing to weakness at New Orleans and favorable Interpreta tion of the weekly weath?r reports. Prices sold off within & point or two of last night's closing figures. COTTON MARKETS. NEW YORK.

The market was active late in the forenoon, but while realising was heavy enough to send prices off 2 or 3 points from the best, the undertone continued very \teady, and active months were about 9 to 10 points net higher at midday.

"Why did you and that young minister quarrel?" asks the friend. "He was nice enough In many ways, but he was so horribly jealous and un fair," says the fair damsel to whom the young divine had been paying serious attention.

Asser tions, however, that crop conditions In Minnesota. North Dakota and Montana were of the best led to a reaction from top prices. The larger commission houses sold freely dn the bulge. Open ing figures were %a% to l%alV& higher. September started at 1.04 to 1.05^4, the same change from Saturday night as the market taken altogether. A relapse to 1.04% followed. Corn showed firmness in sympathy with wheat, but met an oversupply of offerings. September opeaed >? to up at 72% to 72%a72%, sagged to 72 and rallied to 72%. The fact that selling was only of a scattered kind made oats advance. Sep tember started %a% higher, at 40%, touched 40% and then rose to 40%. Provisions turned sharply downward. A large packing concern was unloading and there were lower quotations at the yards. Initial sales ranged from 2% to 10al0% off, with eSptember delivery 1890 for pork, 11.06 to 11.07% for lard and 10.60 for ribs. BALTIMORE. Special Dtapatck te Tha Star.
