In the local market a generally better tone was shown in all departments. It seemed to bo the general belief that the liquidation over the panic culminated on Wednesday, and the expectation ofa good bank statement stimulated quite a little bus ins. Commlsslon-houso business was rather small, but showed signs of Improve ment, and there was fair market evidence that the bis people, particularly the Van derbllt following, were on the big bull side. Sonar Advanced. Sugar advanced on the report that the differences in the trade had been arranged by Arbuckle's controlling cofTee, while the American Sugar Company took the prin cipal position in Sugar. The strength In New York Central was largely based on the bull attitude of the Vanderbllt people, and this was reflected In Erie and the gran gers. A good deal was expected from the fact that the Vanderbllts were known to bo large holders of Union Pacific, and be lieved to have recently bought more. All tho industrial stocks showed more of less strength, and there was an Improving demand for United States Steel. Insiders who had not been particularly bullish in the recent past, were reported to have bought a good deal of stock. International paper was well bought on the reports of large and improving earnings. Southern Pa cific advanced and there appeared to be very little stock in the market. The story of a 3-per-cent .collateral trust bond In ex change for the minority stock was revived and advices on Yhe earnings were very good International Power was well bought and the report that President Callaway of New York Central would accept the presi dency of the new Locomotive Trust to be formed gave a good line on the source of the recent buying. It Is expected that In ternational Power will go into the combina tion on very favorable terms! The uneasiness about money seems to be Bretty nearly over, and at 354S4 per cent i spite of exports of gold may be regarded as cheap. T00, advance of the day was well main tained up to the close, and It was 'notice able that the more speculative Issues were active, and In good demand. The tone In all departments was good and the miblic in terest in the market la reviving. Money touched 5 per cent, but most of the busi ness was done at 4 per cent. The volume of trading was fairly maintained, although, of course, not nearly so large as during the recent excitement. Sew York barb Stocks, .R?1.v"a da,ly G- K.

Things looked more cheerful on the Stock Exchange, the market showing every up- rcaronco of haling recovered to somo ex tent from tho depression of the past day or two. This was shown In the fact that thero was more disposition to support and less to deptcss prices of certain stocks, and In a number of cases they were Btronger and higher. A notable Instance was to be seen In . United Hallways, especially the stock, which was not only In much bettor demand, but showed a good, strong under tone from tho opening to the close of tho market. The dealings were not heavy, but this was more the fault of sellers rather than buyers, as thero woro good buy lne orders on the market. Sales were largest in Transit, being 75 shares at SH.&0 and SO shares at $24.75, with $2150 bid and $24.75 asked. Fifty shares of preferred sold at $77.75 and a small lot of 7 shares at $78, and $77.75 was bid and $78 asked. Thero was not much of a demand for the bonds, and aftor one had sold at $S0.75 there wero sell ers at that, and $89.50 was bid. There were both weakness and strength shown In the market for trust stocks yester day, but more of the latter than the for mer. A particularly strong market was had for Mississippi Volley, which was bid up $6 per share from $350. at which It closed tho day before, to $35S. and was of fered at $357.50. with no sales. Another strong stock was Commonwealth, which was salable at $C53, but none offered. Lin coln was a shade Weaker, being offered at $233. with $232 bid, lifter 15 shares had sold at ilrst-namcd price. Mercantile was de cidedly weak, 10 shares selling at $317.25 and SO shares at $317.50, the close being at $317 bid and $318 asked. Bank Btocks, as a rule, were quiet, but tt the tame time so well supported that prices remained unchanged, and In some easea were Just a shade stronger. Titers were no sales. Bank of Commerce was steady at S2SS bid and 12S3.50 asked. Conti nental was salable at $216. Third National was wanted In a small way at $209. and $209.50. and was offered at $211. The market for State National was $1E0. sellers, and for Mechanics' National 523J.W, sellers, while $203.50 was bid for Boatmen's and $201,50 asked. St. Louis Safe Deposit was better at $138 bid and SltO.Usked. , , Missouri Edison 00 were unchanged at $95 asked, the preferred stock; being quoted at $55 bid. Brewery bonds were weak at $38.75 asked and $98.25 bid, but American Central was In demand at $49, but held at $50 CO. There was also a demand for La clede Gas common at $S1 and preferred at $98. Mining stocks of all descriptions wero dull and neglected, the only one to attract attention being Granlte-Bl-Metalllc, 100 shareB ot which sold at $2.20. but which closed at $2.22M asked and $2,174, bid. AFTEIISOON SESSION. There was not much to the afternoon ses sion, brokers apparently being poorly sup plied with orders to either buy or pell. The undertone of strength shown early in the day still existed, however, and was one of the bright features of the situation, though there were no Important changes in prices. There was no market made for United Rail ways' 4s, but a noticeably good demand was had for the preferred stock, which was very much stronger at $78 buyers and at which 123 shares sold. Transit or common was In more, quiet demand, but early prices were pretty well maintained and the market closed at $24.25 bid and $24.75 asked. With the exception of a slight advance In Mississippi Valley, which was in demand at $356.50, and held at $358, there were no changes In local trust stocks of particular significance. Mercantile was bid $315 and offered at $317.50, which was slightly lower than at the morning session, but Lincoln and Commonwealth were unchanged and GET IN ON THE TRENTON ROOK.

There are ISO or 40 derricks In sight of the ten-acre tract, anil all this land is In the proven oil district. In addition to the 210 acres of leaned lands aliove mentioned, this company owns in fee simple 30.000 acres of land In the recog nized oil district of Texas. We have four up-to-date well-drilling outfits that we will put in the field by June 1 and we are going to develop these lauds nonce. The titles to all our lauds have been passed upon and pronounced good by Duncan and .lone., attorneys, of Tyler. Tex. Weown the perpetual mineral and timber rights In all these lands, and If no oil is found outside the proven dis trict, the company cnn still sell Its fee simple lands for farm, stock and fruit-growing purposes, together with the timber thereon, for the amount of the $.'100,000 stock to be issued at this time, less a reasonable deduction of. say, from 20 to 25 per cent, which will be spent In drilling wells and developing the oil and mineral rights of the property. A portion of this stock is offered to investors at par. Three hundred thousand dollars Is all that' will be issued at present, and every dollar of this goes for the purpose of purchasing tho lands, developing them and obtaining the leases. The seven hundred thou sand dollar of treasury stock will not be used for any purpose, except the acquirement of additional lands, obtaining ad ditional leases, the purchase and equipment of refineries, smelters, laboratories, pipe lines, etc., and all expenditures from this fund of treasury stock will be under the supervision and control of the Board of Directors. In a nutshell, our proposition Is this: If we strike oil or minerals in paying quantities, here is our profit. If we do not strike either oil or minerals, our 30,000 acres of fee simple of land is worth at least 75 per cent of the money w started with. Do you know of any other company that can make this statement? For further Information and particulars ad- MAMMOTH OIL, MINERAL AND LAND CO., North Texas Building, Dallas, Texas.. steady.
