jTfcw York, April 30. The Tendon stock
8kct was active and excited to-day, r.nd
plte of ery heavy profit-taking In
wrthcrn Pacific and the Grangers, a aub
felltilkl ad:tnco was bhnvvn In Atnorlcin
ip'.'ks, particularly United States Btecl ls-
i, and was successfully maintained up
. ine ciosc
ffln the kcal market trading continued In
femendcus clllme. and In snltp nf tho must
rslstent realising, further heavy advances
ere recorded. Tlie United States Steol
stocks had un 'iher rise, and there seems J:t-
Jle doub'. that Insiders consider them worth
considerably more than present prices. A
dividend of 1'4 per cent quarterly Is exposed
un th common ftocki. Northern Pacific
lost scm cf Its sensational rise, but T-as
wonderfully well supported, while Union
Pacifies and tile grangers were as popular
as ever. In transactions of such magni
tude It was dlfiicult to trace particular In
terests, and all the commission houses
seemed lo be buying stock. Atchison com
mon and preferred were noticeably strong
on the expectation of a 2 per cent .-semiannual
dividend on the former. Huch a
payment on the company's earnings may
Justifiably be made.
The strength in New Tork Central and
tho other Vanderbilts In besinnlng to at
tract attention, and many good judges arc
Inclined to consider that In the interest ex
cited by Northwestern deals 'he more stable
Eastern roads have been neglected. It Is
announced on good authority that the an
thracite roads will mako'net advances of
10 cents per ton on anthracite monthly from
the 1st of llay to the 1st of September, In
clusive. The sale of the Lcyland Steam
ship Company to J. P. ilorgan & Co. Is
Confirmed, and Is expected to be tho first
step In an aggressive export policy In steel
and coal. The latest London rumor li that
this purchase will be supplemented by tho
American line and tho White Star, but this
so far lacks confirmation.
In spite of enormous profit-taking, the
strength of the market was maintained up
to the close, and the hard-coal stocks In
particular were very strong on the expected
advance In the pride of anthracite. Erics.
Readings and Pennsylvania in particular
.benefited by this announcement. Very strong
'lorces seemed to bo uenind speculation in
United States Steel, and some very large
blocks have been taken for London account.
Money continued very easy. Tho volume of
trading 'easily beat all previous records, and
brokers wcro unable In many Instances to
guarantee the execution of orders at the
openlnc. .

The early session of the Stock Exchange

terized by more changes In value tnan are
usually r,itne;scd. Heretofore these changes
have been for tho betterment, but yesterday
there was quite a marked disposition shown
to sell. and. In several cases the market
suffered. One of the most notlceablo to feel
the effects of a yelling pressure was Mercan
tile Trust, which, for some time after the
market opened, was hardly mentioned. Near
the close it was taken hold of by a well
known broker.who sold X shares at $330, and
quickly followed it up with 30 more at J323.
at which it was offered at close, with only
t327.50,bld, making a decline from last night
of M per share. Thero was no weakness
shown In Mississippi Valley, however, that
stock being salable at K67 all through the
session and held for $370.. Another strong
stock that was in demand sold higher early,
only to weaken late, was Lincoln, which
sold to the amount of SO shares on a sliding
scalp, 10 shares bringing T221.50, 23 shares

day. and which about cleaned up all the
loose stock on the market. There was
nothing done In the bonds or the preferred
stocks nnd no quotable change made in
market values.
There was an unusually good demand for
Mlssourl-Kdlson 5s yesterday, and sales of
J-'.M") of Jl denomination were made at
$33.50. and later $2,000 $300 bonds sold at
$9i..5. There was also a demand for the
preferred stock, but a sale of 10 shares
at $39.50 appeared to satisfy the wants of
the parties bidding.
Broadway cable bonds met with a very
good demand, and during the meeting
$6,000 changed hands at $101. The only other
sale that was made was in 100 shares of
Granlte-BI-Metalllc at $2.27H. at -which
there were sellers, and $2.221i bid.

E. 'A. Cndahy Receives Letter Of
fering Him 121,000 to. Witli
draw Reward for Criniinals. !
Omaha, Neb., April 30. An agent of the
kidnapers has made a proposition to" Ed
ward. A.- Cudahy to return $21,090 of the
money paid for his son's ransom, demandaiK
In return a withdrawal of the $25,000 reward
and a. cessation of the search that'ls.betcs;
prosecuted, together with "an abandonment
of the determination to punish the crim- '
lnals. . t
The proposition came in a letter from El
gin, 111., and Mr. Cudahy is convinced" of its
authenticity. He' went to Chicago ten days
ago' because of It. being summoned there
by his brother in response to overtures that
had been made. '-j.
He refused to consider Jt for a minute,
and declares his unchanged resolve to prose :
cnte to the end the search for the men who
stole his boy. -,
"I received a letter about ten days act,"
said Mr. Cndahy. "It was dated -April IS, at
Elgin, and bore the Elgin, postmark, X can
not show It to you. because I sent It to
Mr. Pinkerton, nor can I give you Its con
tents verbatim, as I did not make a-copy
of it.
"It was very brief, and recited that tha
chief kidnaper had communicated with the
writer and was getting uneasy. It" set forth
that the chase by the detectives was attUnc
uncomfortably close and asked If I would r
wlhdraw the offer of reward now crntstaad.
ing and let up on the effort to find tha crim
inals and have $21,000 of the $omnnsom
returned to me.
"So far as the offer is concerned, it kas
been rejected. I refused absolutely and 'US- .:
quaUfiedly to consider It. and am determined '
to prosecute this search as vigorously aa-I
know how. That is what we started oatto
do, and I feel as if I would follow those mam
to the ends of the earth. ' - -

and that is a sum, that Is certainly an ob
ject to any man, no matter what mar be his
means. As I feel about the matter I would
spend my last thousand dollars rather than .
compromise with the criminals.. I am desir
ous of having-them punished for what tkey
have dooe, and to deter any other daring -"
gang from compelling other parent ta un- .
