REPUBLIC SPECIAL. New York, Aug. IS This wat, the first day of the settlement in London and stocks failed to show their usual recovery in deal ings for the new account. American btoci.3 loet ground on the day and the general list was heavy. Consols, however, were rather firm at SS. There v.as a harder tendency In money, and. It was generally believed In London that higher rates would prevail on both sides of the Atlantic in the early fall. No alterations -aero reported in exchange st Paris or Berlin. The Chinese dcts was of a contradictory nature, but nobody be lieved in tho rumored fighting nt l'ekin. The contangoes showed a very small ac count open in London on either side In the local market the tone was not very cheerful, and, except where Fpeclaily favor Bblo Influences made themselves felt, the tendency was to sag. Sugar, however, ral lied on the anticlpitated advance in the price of refined, and ins-ldo interests were reported to have bought Brooklyn Transit. It was said that Chicago shorts had cov ered a. little People's GasL AtchUon's statc ment showing some Sliti.V'Q increaso was con sidered a good one and had the effect of rallying the jallroad slocks somewhat. Hard coal roads were inclined to l weak at first on rumors apparently confirming the impending strike among the miners and the possibility of its spreading to the oft coalers checked speculation in that depart ment. Commission houtes weie doing little, but seemed to hav e a few investment orders In such stocks ns Pennsylvania, Burlington. St, Paul and the Paclllc preferred stocks. Money continued almost as easy as ever. The close of railioad stocks was steady and very idle. The recovery" in Sugar was well maintained and Erooklvn Transit was very steadv. The Atchison statement helped to give fair sttengtli to granger stocks, but tho trading was very limited The bor rowing demand continued to show a. con siderable short Inter. t open. The story cabled from ist. PetTsr-uig. ila Paris, of a defeat of the allies at I eKin Is unlikely on the face or it, and did not ob tain any credence here or in the London market. The position in China, uccordlrg to tho most authentic news continues un satisfactory, and thTo is a growing ten dency for the allies, especially the Ru--elans, to act independents News from South Africa is a good deal better and shows an Important capture by the Brit ish and slgnn of the Boers matting a final jitand before giving up uie corneal j in iirhfcnn statement for tho month of July shows a net increase after allowing for operating expenses, taxation and rentals of 1253 735. This is undeniably good and may be 'taken as very tangible evidence of the prosperity of Ihe Paclllc trade. All the copper statistics publif-hed t-nd to show that the world's demand is in excess of the supply. , ... Reports aro current of the construction of a line from Salt Lake City to Los An Ktles. This is said to be under the aus pices of Union Pacific and Burlington, but what view the Atchison and Southern Pa cific people are likely to take of such an Incursion of their territory is not si ited. London's transactions here were as .--mall as ever, not amounting to more thin :1,0ft) shares on the day. It Is not considered like ly that any activity will develop betworn this and the holidays at the end of the week. JVew York Stock Quotation. St. Louis. Aug. IS. 23-0.
