Operations on the Stock Market
Unimportant in Nature.
FAVOR Ml TO MINOR SYSTEMS
Best Opinion it Still At Sea As to
Outlook for Tariff Revision and
Crops?Professionals Appear Confi?
dent.
(By Associated Press.)
XKW YORK. .March S.?The sliecU.
lathe fraternity operated on tho long
side of the stock market today, but
on a moderate scale. Tin y seemed
to draw favorable conclusions from
the action in yesterday's market of
the Kansas City Southern stocks and
the Canadian Pacific group, based
in one case on rumors cf coming
control by B. H. Harrlman and in the
olln r on iho absorption of Wisconsin
Central into the system.
The effect was seen in the favor
shown today to stocks of minor sys?
tems, which might be merge,] to ad?
vantage in larger systems.
The confidence with which several
such stock;: were pushed 'forward was
not at all impaired by the fact that
Kansas City Southern itself was quite
violently reactionary under the weight
Of profit taking sales, pointing to the
speculative origin of yesterday's ad?
vance, while the Canadian PactBc
group was neglected and Inclined to
be heavy.
Outside of the rather obscure
stocks to which the speculation turn?
ed Iho market operations, was not on
an important scale. The tone of
the opening negotiations between the
anthracite miner:;' representatives
and operators were Interpreted as
giving hopes of a temporary progress
ami an adjustment by agreement.
The evidence that funds are again
accumulating in banks' hinds Induced
an expectation of a renewal of a
pressure for investment which has
shown signs of lagging, especially
in the tone of the recent bond market.
The supply of funus available in the
money market is growing so redound,
ant again thai the prosjiect of a fur?
ther outgo of gflld is viewed with
entire equanimity.
Discussion is still heard of the ob?
scurity in the outlook of tariff revis?
ion, and the crons for the ccmlrtg
year.
The professional element in the
market professes a confidence that
The possibility cf the unsettling in?
fluence of the*:.-- factors is too remcte
still to Interfere with their plan for
advancing prices before they shall
licromc active.
The trivial net price charge at the
end of the day reveals the inconclus?
ive character of the dealings.
The decrease io the cash holdings
of the banks was unexplained by the
known movements of money, but the
matter has little importance in view
of the soft tone maintained by ail do
pertinents of the money market

there is no fur her apparent reason
to apprehend a multiplication of the

same manner as thai which brought
on the original difficulty. A consider?
able fall of moist snow was followed
tonight by rain, which it Is expected
will Improve the situation rather than
of herwise.
Itcpa.r and construction gangs have
been busy today hut the limited force
of men obtainable have not been aide
to make much impression, further
than doing a good deal in the way of
clearing away the wreckage.
Repairmen Flockin- In.
Hut from south, west and north re?

SOUTHERNER LOSES EYE IN

CRN SELL LIQUOR ON RIVER
IN SPITE OF "DRV LAWS
Ohio Judge Decided Prohibition Acts
Ashore Do Not Control Oper,
ations Afloat.
(By Associated Press.)
HAST LIVERPOOL. OHIO.. Mar.
?1.?A di-cision was banded down in the
Columbians county court by Judge W.
W. Holt today, ruling that liquor can
be sold on the Ohio river without vio?
lating the law. This will greatly
handicap the work of the dry forces,
as nearly all the towns aiong the
Ohio river hav(. voted to prohibit the
?-ah- of liquor.
The decision was made In the case
of William Savers, who was charged
with selling liquor on a houseboat.
Savers wan fined by Mayor Craw?
ford, but appcah-d the case, the ruling
today being ine result.
The Judge declared It was unfair
and wrong to sell liquor under these
conditions, but maintained the law did
no: cover such a contingency.
The dry force/ will probal/y carry
the rose to . higher court.
