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.
