The World of Business The rotewcrthy event In Wall stieet jes terday was the reduction or the dividend on Manhattan stock fiom a 0 to a 4 rer cent basis .Manhattan dropped on this ie ductlon, and the whole market was ur fected by It, This anil other Influences, the unfavorable report or the Missouri Pa cific among them, caused the onlj drop during the day, and tills was nearlj reiov ered. There was not much business on the exchange and no decided movement in any direction Speculation left ofr firm Net changes show declines or 1-4 to 1 3-1 per cent, outside or Omaha and Tobacco, which made rractlonal gains. The total sales were 115,027 shares.

The report of MJSMurl Pactficwas a mo-t disappointing one to those who had been bulls on the prospects of the rise The statement shows a deficit for the year of, $1,251,761, an increase or $671,514 as compared with the previous year It is ex pected that thestatemen twill have a btar ish erfettonthe stock.

The report was that there w ould be an earl j- retirement of the scrip Otlier influences were favorable to the stock also. It seems reasonablj certain that the dpciwon in the New Jersej case will be In favor of the companj". The New Jersej case against Tobacco has been very carefully prepared, and If It fails the effect cannot be otherwise than good. Advices from Spnnglleld are that the bill for the consolidation of the Chicago gas companies has a large majontj- as sured in both houses, and that it will go thiough with comparatively little friction verv shortly The people who have been bearing Chicago Gas tor the last two mouths arc hopeful of soon realizing good profits on the stock. The Journal or Commerce, in Its weekly review ot the drj goods market, says- Tnc bulk of the bujers during the week devoted their attention to business in Jobbing circles The demand for spring goods showed me increase, but there has been no material change in the tone ot the general market. In cotton goods the demand is rcadilj- met. Both the cotton and print cloth markets have been dis appointing again this week. There has been some falling off In the demand for woolen and worsted fabnes, chierij for low grades.

It seems very strange to friends ot Mr. Gould that this should have happened. The dividend reduction did not artect the stock more than a slight Traction. There was a bad drop immediately after the announcement ot the reduction, but it was regained later In the day. Thi3 reduction Phows that the management, or several people in the management, at least, have become very certain that the company is not earning more than I per cent, and probably win not for some time tocome.
