'AMERICANS FIRM IN LONDON MARKET. CONSOLS RULED MUCH FIRMER, Buying of Union Pacific and Strength in Grangers Fea tures in Xew York Pit. .EPTJBL1C SPECIAL. New York. Auf. 3. The London market Inactive hi anticipation of the lortn- comlnr holiday, but American stocks were fairly firm and closed strong. Consols -wero firmer at 97?i, and the general market steady. There was no change In money con ditions and exchange- In Paris and Berlin continued very firm. The Chinese news was considered rather better. The London Stock Exchange will be closed until Tues day morning1. . In tho local market the buying of Union Pacific on tho dividend and tho strength in the grangers on tho inreased earnings were tho features. Susar and Brooklyn Transit showed fair strength under what looked like pool buying, but a good deal of long stock cama out In both and no advanco was recorded. Thero was quite a little good buying in Ontario and "Western on tha ex pectation that the stock would be split thi3 fall and that a 1 per cent dividend would bo paid. B. &. O. did not act very well and seemed to derive most of its support from the short Interest The general tone of the market was in clined to be bullish, but trading was very professional and there were no signs of any real public lnteresL The story of compe tition waa again revived in connection with Continental Tobacco, but did not meet wltli much belief. The buying of the stock was eood on any decline. Fair buying was re- jjorted in Jllssourl Pacific and Northern Pa nic, and theio was o. good deal or covering shorts in tho grangers, both for Chicago local operators. Boston bought Union PacBSC and the grangers. London trans actions were very small, not totaling more than, some 7,000 shares on Uie day, equally divided between sales and purchases. Honey .was very easy. Th'e closo was steady and near the best, although a. deal of Jong stock came out In one or two instances, notably in Union Pa cific.' which was, however, well taken. Con siderable short covering for Chicago was tho 'feature in the Grangers. Brooklyn Transit and Sugar were Inclined to bo heavy, and It looked as If the pool advanced the railroad stocks to get out of Industrials. According to the latest Chinese cables tho allies hope to roach Pckln about the 12th, auid are not so far meeting with serious op position. All indications point to early col Lipfe of tho Boer resistance, A number of alarmist cables are being sent over, alleging the imminence of a money squeeze In Lon don, but Buch Inferences are not Justified on ny known facts. The enormous over subscription to the recent war lean is tho Jiest evidence that it Is held widely, and not as alleged, entirely in tho hands of a few London banks. The coal famine In Europe, while sufficiently Eerlous, is already known and discounted, and Its only effect 50 far as this market Is concerned would bo to stim ulate the export of coal and to help the aroft coal roads. The bank statement to-morrow Is expected to show an lncreoso In reserve, but the out flow of money for the harvest may be short ly expected. With money at Its present price, however, Xew York can easily afford a considerable drain. Chesapeake and Ohio J hows net earnings for tho month of Juno ncreas J22,f3, ana for the year ending Jun SO an increase of J3S1.97C. Hocking Xumy shows, an Increase of ?I3.S1S. St. Paul earnings increased ISL47S for the fourth -ck in Juiy, mamng ine decrease 5164.131 ncr July 1. Big Four's increase for Juno Er rharcei wa SS6.215. and Rock Island' 5ncreae net 567,019. The borrowing demand tin indicates a rather oversold condition in the Grangers and B. & O. common. Ke-fT Torlc Stock Quotation. St. Louis, BYlaay. .tour. 8. ISM.
