(Sugar Was Well rfinpported, De spite the Supreme Court De cision Money, Steady. SEPCBMC SPBCLU New Tork, May 27. London waa closed to- for the usual Whitsuntide holiday. Ad- from the other aide on the position of the short Interest In .London and Berlin war meet -satisfactory and a rood author ity ald that Its seriousness had. been great ly xaKerated- Until it was definitely -kaoarn. however, that all the short Interest had en arranged for, the money market mm tBcsected to keeo firm. "In the local market, with the exception f a few specialties, the trading; was' ex ceedingly dull. Tobacco stocks were con spicuously strong' on buying said to be for the Philadelphia pool headed by the "Wlden-.er-Blktas Interest. It was said on fairly ooJ authority that Insiders In New Tork were rather in the dark as .to themotlve it the upward more. Sugar fluctuated quite a little on the uncertainty as to the de cision of the Supreme Court on the status or Porto Rico and the Philippines. The railroad stocks were neglected, but the chief support in the Southwestern group was ex ceedingly good. Wabash Issues, after eas ing off on scattered realizing, hardened up again when It was found that there was a ready market for all stock ottering. The granger stocks were dull and neglected, al though Union Pacific rallied from the low figure. Even the good earnings on Atchison failed to stimulate outside business In that stock. A rumor has been current- of a 4 per cent dividend on Car and Foundry common, but Indications do not tend to confirm it. It Is believed that the company's business fully justlnes an Increase of capital of $10, 000.000 to $12,000,000, and It Is the Intention to pay for the Jackson-Sbarpe purchase, and tho n.000,000 extension of Its plant In De troit out of earnings. Chicago reports an enormous movement of general merchandise last week and offi cials of all roads say that the tonnage handled Is unparalleled for the time of year. Burlington alone carried 4,000,000 pounds more merchandise than during the same week In 3900. Officials say that this expe rience Is that of nearly every road center ing at the large Western cities. There is some talk that Chicago and Eastern Illinois may purchase the Evansville and Terre Haute and action Is not Impossible at the annual meeting next week. Unusual activ ity Is reported In the products of the Na tional Lead Company and a maintenance of business on this scale will show largely in creased earnings for the vear. There was a marked raHy in Wabash Is sues at the close accompanied bv exceeding ly good inside buying. Sugar was well sup ported In spite or a little realizing In the decision of the Supreme Court. It was not generally believed that the abrogation of the Porto Rlcan sugar duties would be a serious factor. The market was dull though out and the continued bad weather had a depressing Influence. Money continued steady at 2W3 per cent all day. Hew Tork Stock Quotation. St. Louis. Monday. May !7, 1901.
