STRIKE AFFECTED COALERS
IN NEW YORK.
Support on the Decline Was Ex-
Gas Was Lower.
New Tork, Sept. 13. American 6tocks
were rather neglected in the London mar
ket and tagged In the absence of trading.
The Interest centered In the English railroad
Ftocke, which were lower on labor troubles
end reduced dividends on the Scottish roads.
Consols were steady, but there was fcoir.e.
little reaction In Kaffir sliares. The. news
from China was Indefinite, hut the market
v.-as inclined to consider tho Boer war prac
tically settled by the fllsht of Troldent
JCrugcr. Money was In some demand la
Berlin, but easy elsewhere. No movement
In exchange was reported. The Bank of
England did not change Its rate, which
remain, at 1 per cent. The bank return
was a etrong one, and .showed a high pio
portion of reserve to liabilities.
In the local market hard coalers sold oft
fit the openintr on the anthracite strike. Tbo
t"upport on the decline was exceedingly
tood and gave color to the rumors of trunk
line purchases. Traders wero Inclined to
attack stocks known to be more or less
controlled by pools, and Missouri Pacific
nd Baltimore and Ohio suffered. Soft
coaler, were lower at the opening on the
possibility of the labor trouble ppr-fiellng
to the bituminous districts, but rallied very
Tcople's Gas ma lower on tho report
from Chicago that the citizens had com
bined in a refusal ta, etaoiETAOIoNINnN
tilncd in a refusal to ray more than 30c
tor gas on a threat of establishing mu
nicipal gas control, and azltatlng for tho
withdrawal of People's Gas franchise. The
movements in Sugar and Brooklyn Transit
were very largely professional, and no
fresh news was forthcoming In these stocks.
The public showed a distinct Inclination to
BWltch over to the railroad stocks, probably
with an Idea that they gave a better return
to the outsider. The close was dull, but
hard, and. In spite of the various adverse
rumors current there was no stock offering
in any department. The St. Paul dividend
was what the market had e:ipected, and
aroused no Interest. The borrowing demand
allowed a little scarcity of j-tock. but the
eceount open was very trilling.
Reports of the Iron and frteel trade In
dicate a better demand In Epots, and there
Is also some revival In the i-tecl-rail trade.
."West Shore has lodged a good order with
Federal Steel for rails, and any further re
duction In price will probably bring con- 1
tracts irom outer roaos. uno market con
sidered tho St. Paul dividend a foregone
conclusion, and the stock showed fair
strength. The market, although somewhat
Inactive, is generally more dull than weak,
and a very little leading would stimulate

Between Ileicatto and Tagalog there Is a
fierce race hatred. The Tattalogs have lord
ed it ttr the Ilocanoa for cars, and have
held them down and oppressed them. But
to-day the Ilocanos. who pride tnemseives

from the Tagalogs. have, in a measure, ac

them to Tagalog reprisals and vengeance.
Last month a Land of Insurgents caught
three llocano women and one man alone on

In their lighting tho I'ocanos arc much
benefited by the moral support given them
bv the presence of Atnerle-ans at their side.
Tliev do better work when -vim the Amer
icans than when alone. They are not as
jet very good shots, and it is sometimes
dltlicult to make them cease firing during
tho excitement nf a skirmish. In the matter
of gettimr Information from the people and
flnillmr hidden rifles they are supreme. They
can look over a crowd of Tagalogs. all
loudly protesting their innocence and friend
liness to tho Americans, and. with almost
unerring correctness, pick out those who
are active rebels from those who are not.
I.Ieutenent Jernigan. who has worked
with these new llocano scouts more than
uny other American officer, reports them
to be obedient and brave. They do not pilfer
or loot; they are better fitted than Amer
icans for chasms down ladrones and brig
ands, because they can live where an
American would starve, and they can travel
more nulckly through swamps and Jungles
fh.in can our soldiers.
American .Soldiers Are Worn Out.
It has been (Colonel Kcnnon's policy to
pursue the robbers and Insurgents without
let-up. Their bands have been dispersed
In his district, and thev arc not permltteel
to organize; their chiefs have been killed
and they are afraid to show themselves
with arms. All tMs work has fallen on
tt-. Amerleann. and thev are worn out and
exhausted with the continual round of
"hike" and guard duty, guard duty and
"hike." The Ilocanos are showing that they
can relievo the Americans of tome of this
most arduous work.
When the llocano scouts were orsanlzcd.
their first eluty was on outpest near Ca
banatuan. They ot once abused the power
given them by making every Tagalog who
came along that road respectfully salute
them. But. as champions of those who are
oppressed, the American oiilcers soon put a
stop to this praetlcc
