Large forces of men were at work digging -huge holes in the ground where t'he old 8 and 10-inch con? verted rifles, which were dismounted a .-.bort time ago, used to stand. In their place will be mounted a battery of modern rapid fire guns, which are ex? pected to command -Hampton Roads and Chesapeake 'Bay and make 'it Im? possible for a torpedo boat of the en? emy to enter. These guns, it is thought, will be in fighting condition by the end of this week, or at least, some of them will. The work is not confined to the fort itse'.'t by any means, for active prepar? ations for a possible conflict are being made at the "Pines Battery" and on the beach of Chesapeake Bay, midway be? tween this battery- and the fort. Here it is that four new disappearing guru will be mounted behind breastworks of the most modern and substantial kind. The breastworks behind which these huge engines of war will be concealed arc of the new character, and a de-, scription of them will^jbe^?.r-,r\/>J'llit. which is intended to give the shape to the breatsworks tbemselv and then a breastwork of concrete will be shaped' in the modern frame. When this is completed sand and gravel will be packed on top and in front of the concrete and the whole will be sodded over with grass. This is the most modern of breastworks, and is con? sidered almost impregnable to shot or projectile. There will be two batteries of two gurte each concealed behind these works. "Exactly when this bat? tery will be finished cannot ibe etated, but it is thought that as the work is being puste'd with great haste it will be ready to "speak" by the middle of the summer, if not sooner.

NEW TORK, April 23.?^Toduy the stock -market was "discounting peace," in the language of brokers.. This was done by lifting prices a notch higher. There was reported an active demand for securities in London, but the buy? ing here for London account was not large, as prices here ruled abofe Lon? don parity. There were periods of re? action but the publication of the bank statement caused renewed buying ami lifted prices to the highest. They were shaved off by renewed apprehen? sion as to 'the safety- to the Paris, the closing being easy below the best, but at net gains throughout reaching a point in sonw ca.-es. The volume of ?the dealings was not large, the indus? trial specialties were favorites in the trading, especially sugar and tobacco. The general feeling in financial circles is that the war Is not likely to be pro? tracted and only some unexpected ac? cident or disaster could effect the con? viction that Spain must succumb to poor resources. A feature of the day was the hardening in exchange, demo nd sterling bills -ising to 4.St. The week closes with a great part of the extreme losses in prices recov? ered, net declines not exceeding 2 points in any of the promdnetn leading stocks. It is noteworthy ultsO. that the low prices of the week were not as low except in a few cases as those on March 25, which marked the lowest point on the decline afteh the blowing up of the Maine. The grounds for the confidence and mprovesfment in the stock market will >e found in money conditions. Today's bank statement shows a surplus reserve to have increased to $43,623.100 and of of the first time since war threatened the weeks increase is due to an actual increase in cash rather than to the lessened reserve requirements through drawing dtown- deposits. That is to say, the demand for cush from the interior to fortllfy reserves there lias almost eased. Or the total of nearly 500,000, 000 of gold ordered from Europe over $17,000,000 remains to be accounted for :n -the bank statement, being in transit or received' oifter (today's statement was completed. ?In view of these conditions It is not strange that the movement -of gold to New York has come to a stop, no engagements having .been announced ror two days. Financial institutions in the United .States have ceased to draw on their credits abroad, because they feel ami ply secured against the money needs of the war.

There was a masquerade party out in e 'East End a few nights ago. and among those 'present were Frederick Windle and his wife, guys the Cleveland Leader. Mr. Windle is not above a Ui in'nocent flirting -upon occasion, 1 when 'he heard that .Miss .Dailing 1, a young woman whose charms I had appealed to him 'from the moment their first meeting, was to be there he rejoiced. If he could only have found out what . of a- costume she intended to wear, would have been supremely happy, ut that could not be, as all his covert nquiries went for naught. i Aes for Mrs. Windle, she is not blind. ! lthough her husband never to'ld her charming he thought Miss Dai Con was. the observing wife was to snuff," and so, while prepara s for the masquerade were in pro ;-, she and the young -woman, who ready enough to take part in a harmless joke, formed a beautiful little ?for t'he -unltiading of Frederick Windle. This consisted of nothing nore than an exchange of costumes, just before the party, the unsuspected usband having, in the meantime, been veil an opportunity to see the rig s wife had fixed up ostensibly for M-self. Of course the victim was not slow in c-kitvg out his wife?or. at least, he ipposed she was his wife?when the un began, and he, therefore, took par icuiar twins to avoid her.
