NEW YORK, June o. ? There ?ras
hut scanty matter of Interest in to?
days stock market. The total of the
day's dealings disclosed a violent
rhrlnkage in the volume of trading,
the day's s;iles falling to a smaller'
total than for several months, and'
during the latter part of the day j
there was almost entire BtugnalfcHi.
Union Pacific continued to hold its |
dominant place in tho dealings ami'
except for some supplementary in?
terest in Heading there was really)
nothing ease ocnlling for notice in
the day's price movement. The post- |
ponement of the public offering of,
the Union Pacific bond issue, sub?
scribed for by banktrs. was given
some Inflaecne as a deterrent from;
active operations. s
Forecasts of the currency move-1
men) to and from New York during
the week promised a gain on balance
for this c^njer^of .110.000.000 to $12.
009,000. Th . sub-treasury's contribu?
tion of $3,429,000 was included. The
gain on sub-treasury operations is due
to .the heavy current deficit in the
government revenues and the result?
ing excess of payments made at Now
York. This course of the government
revenues h? exin-cted to prompt an
early additional call on the banks
by the treasury for return* of gov?
ernment deposits.
