Bontham Fkdflo aasamed the leadership
of aa aaxiy afirxnc. which vrss rather
leefiay checked by an outpouring of
United States Steel preferred, which car
ried Ciat stock down to BOii and awak
ened Tenewed apprehension of Its further
demnrffllsmg effect on the whole stock
market. The persistence with which as
ertloos save reappeared that the divi
dend on the common otock is to be sus
pended and that on the preferred stock
to be reduced has made its Impression
upon speculative sentiment since the au
thorities in the corporation who have
been appealed to for Information fro no fur
ther than to sar that the question is one
remaining: lor the future to decide. The
rureestion which found Its war to the
apnbuo to-day with the appearance of be

sue SO.000,000 of second bonds to retire

rsaasorlsa; effect on the speculators and
helped m the recovery of United States
fc tail preferred.
GAINS X POINT.
Ti stock closed with a net iraln of a
point. The stiffness of the call money
market was another deterrent factor to
ward the rise. CaU loans touched T1 per
cent. 'While the demand for money,
which caused this rife was unmistakable,
it seemed to be viewed with equanimlt.
The premium established for cw Tork
exchange at Chicago is taken to point to
an earlv return flow to this center, which
the high call money rate would help to
Induce.
Confidence Is felt also that any real
need for money would draw further pold
from London. Saturday's arrivals of Bold
amounted to J3 9GLC3. which will, there
fore, fteure for the full wetk's aerape In
next Saturday's bank statement The de
mand for monev Is rejrarded as normal to
,h. loaf nrolr nf the month For these rea
sons the current firmness of the call
money market does not Eeem to disturb
ientiment.
REPUBLIC STHEU
Another factor of poslble disturbance
was the collapse In Republic Steel pre
ferred, which lot peernl points on the
dav. There was no smpatheilc response
to this outside of n few- of the other Iron
end steel Circumstantial rerwrts were In
circulation of the nece-lties of the com

alleged, would be met tn a bond issue as
well as by reducing the dHldend on the
preferred stock A considerable su'-taln-Inc

confirmatory of rumors much prealent

local market.

Southern Padflc The renewed strength of
Southern Paelnc attracts much attention, par
ticularly aa specialists did not think that Mr
Keene was responsible for the manipulation in
the stock It was said. howeer. that from
the character of the buying the-e was reason
to belle e that a more aclKe market turn was
contemplated The gossip of the street wa
that ine bull tips on the Rtock. which were
very numerous cam from E H Horrtman
and his oloeeft friends, and that It was iire
dloted that tn stock would ro on a dUldend
paylne baala aext June, when 2 per cent would
be declared.
R. B. C The very aharp decline in R B C
preferrtd was on sclllnr bj Harris Gates i
Oo.. and by the room-traders generallj The
first rumor was of th cessation of dlMdends
but officials said no action w onld fce loken In
the matter lust now Another version wa
that the company had been obliged to beam
negotlatloos for a loan of JJOuO.OOO It was
stated th next metlnK of the director would
he hold next Thursday. Tbe mnjurltj of the
bear reports came from Chicago so did mo.t
of the relllns.
Tractions Early strength of Brooklyn Rapid
Transit was du to buying by leading com
mission houses, some of them known as
"Standard oil brokers" and the others identi
fied with certain prominent inMde interests
Th movement In Metropolitan began with
purchases by specialists, some of whom, as far
aa could be learned, tbrmp-hr ft nn , .,-
to bid up the price. The "good" buying did
not come- in until the price had risen a point
Jew Tork Curb Market.
REPEBIJC BPECIAX.
New Tork. Nov. JC Trading in stocks on the
curb was generally quiet, the chief feature
being a rlae of ZH points by arly m the after
noon In Cuban revolutionary 6-per-cent bonds

of th Interest would be paid bj the Goe-n-xnent.
Negotiations are alleged to hate been
going on recently to ascertain the attitude of
President Palma on this point. Other transac

Local Money Market.
Transactions at the banks were In good vol

SUIKIMARYOFST, LOUIS MARKETS
Th-re was not much bullish energy in jesterda's grain market. Most of tho
statistical news was rather colorless, and. In the absence of the big traders, the
scalpers were uncertain as to the outlook. Ranges were very narrow, ,-ml Dec. wheat
made only a slight gain, while May closed unchanged after scoring a small early ad
vance. Lack of speculative Interest was the main factor. Cables cjme lower, nnd
the world's shlnments for the week were extremely large, with only a small proportion
of th total credited to America. As a partial offset, the amount afloat showed a do
crease. Receipts were largo and weather conditions were generally favorable. The
tlsible supplies showed an Increase and statistical information was generally favor
able to the boars. There was a sharp decline in the last hour, mainly because of a
break in Minneapolis, where there was said to be practically no demand for flour. Tho
market was further weakned by light exports and a falling off in the local cash in
quiry. Corn showed little life. Though the local receipts were moderate nnd the visible
supply show ed a decrease, cables w ere easj- and w eathcr conditions v ere f a orable.
