The cotton market opened barely
steady, at a decline of '2 to 7 points under
scattering liquidation and local selling,
encouraged by lower cables and favorable
weather in the south over Sunday. Active
months sold about 5? to 10 points net
lower during the early trading, but there
was a good demand at this decline, partly
from leading spot brokers, yd prices
later rallied on unfavorable weather forecasts.

active Issues were off minor to material
fractions. Trading in Steel was moderately
large, at a slight recession from
last week's close.
Heaviness increased and important
issues added to their losses. Selling
was comparatively light, but there was
not sufficient demand to absorb offerings.
Restraining Influences.
Last week's adverse bank statement,
the condition of the foreign markets and
expectations that the Supreme Court would
today hand down one or more decisions
of interest to the financial community
were among the restraining influences in
today's early market.
Business was the lightest of any first
hour in weeks, and the nature of the
trading left no doubt of its professional
origin. The tendency was mainly downward
at the outset, but fluctuations in
important issues were extremely narrow,
the only exception being Canadian Pacific,
which reflected its heaviness
abroad. Reading led the general recovery
at midday, despite higher money.
Reading's abrupt decline soon after noon
was attributed to advices from Washington
stating that the Supreme Court had
;aken no action in the coal cases. The
market then lapsed into renewed apath}*.

advanced from 43 to 4fl. One of the brokers
said that was the bid in New York

at the bid price, but no more stock was
On the supposition which is held by
those familiar with the situation that
the payment of a dividend on this stock
is to be resumed at the next dividend
period the current figures for the stock
mean an initial rate of at least 2 per cent.
The slightly better figures for gas stock
which prevailed at the close of last week
continued today. Several broken lots were
wanted, and the bid was 8ft. The onlytransaction
was the sale of three shares
for 8ft%. At the close the bid for the
stock was 8S, and the asking price half
a point higher.
Two lots of Washington Railway preferred
stock sold at 00, and there was a
market for more at the same level. Nothing
was done in the other traction stocks,
except two small lots of Capital Traction
sold ait 124.
Sales were made in the bonds of the
two car line systems, and in the case of

Schooner. ' ?
Seas from one of the big government
ugs running between the navy yard here ^
md the proving grounds at Indian Head, j
dd., are said to be responsioie ior me i
wamping of the two-masted schooner
'aroline H. Mears ofT Indian Head Sat- ^
irday night. ti
According to the story told by Capt. H
toss, the master of the vessel, the Mears f
was on her way to this city with a j
argo of wood when the big tug passed t
ier. ^
The seas made by the tug washed all f
iver the schooner, causing her to fill and *
orcing Capt. Ross and two other colored p
nen. constituting the crew of the
ichooner, to take to their small boat for 1
lafety. r
Reports brought here today by ineomng
vessels state that the Mears is lying H
in her side with sails set and is drifting s
ip and down the channel with wind and ?
ide. She hails from Cape Charles, Va., 13
amp to the Potomac about four months
Lgo and has been employed in wood and *
umber running from river points to this f
Ity. She was last in port here about ^
hree weeks ago. S
lury Told to Find for Mrs. C. A. I
Harding in Snit Against Syndicate, e
Justice Wright today -directed a jury in
'ircuit Court Xo. "J of the District Supreme ^
'ourt to return a verdict in favor of h
'aroline A. Harding, executrix of the esate
of the late Theodore A. Harding, for d
he sum of $2,445.01, with interest from p
uly H, 1!I08, against the members of t
ifhat is known as the Eleventh and E si
Itreet Syndicate. \
Theodore A. Harding was a member *
if the syndicate, owning a valuable
orner at 11th and E streets north- 8
vest, and was its managing agent, rentng
its property and attending to all J
epairs, rebuilding and other disburse* '
nents. After Ids death his widow, ;u?
xecutrix, presented an account with [
he books from an agreed date in 1!?01{
o the date of Mr. Harding's death, and 1
ifter examination of the same, the .*
yndicate. Mr. Emmons S. Smith pre- !
iding, passed a resolution accepting
2,445.61 " as the amount Mr. Harding
md rmiri out on the svndirate account
>ver and above the income of the syn- ?
licate, and directed an assessment be ?
evied to pay tiie debt. 1
I^ater the syndicate undertook to re- *
cind the action, whereupon suit was ^
irought. The syndicate defended on tlie j
;round that Mr. Harding was a member t
f the syndicate, and the estate could not
ue at law on the account stated, but r
inly in equity, where there must be a j
nil accounting of all the affairs of the s
yndleate from its inception, but the de- j
ense was held not well founded. The a
larding estate was represented by Ma- f
on X. Richardson and Charles H. Meruit
as* attorneys. t
Clectric Clocks Being Placed in P. 0. f
Department Building. c
To help#the clerks get to work 011 C
Ime and to prevent tardiness, which, it
3 explained, has grown in the Post Office e
Jepartment, due to the inadequate ele- c
ator service, Chief Clerk George G. a
Thompson is having new electric time P
locks established, with connections over
he wires of the Western Union Tele- h
xapli Company with the naval observa- Ai
ory. A clock is to be erected at the enranee
to each of the elevators 011 the
irst floor of the building and a third
lock on the north wall of the inner
ourt. V
It is claimed the five elevators now in
iperation in the building, one of which d
s a freight elevator, are entirely inade- &
luate to accommodate the number of
lerks and employes who are obliged to s?
ise them or climb the long flights of c'
tuiru TIih nriffinal uluncz t\ f tho P
tig, Jt is explained, provided for more t(
levators, but the House committee on je
pproprlations decided tbat a less numer
would be sufficient, and refused to d
pprove more than the Ave now in use. 0]
'o install more at this time, it is said, ^
,-ould involve prohibitive expense. tJ.
The purpose of the electric clocks is to
urnlsh the clerks with the standard time tj
o that if the crowds prevent their taking
he elevators they can ascend to where
hey belong by the stairways and thus cj
void tardiness, which is strictly marked <j<
gainst them even to the fraction of five ai
linutes. a:
queen may change plans. ?
