New Yohk, February 18. Money
on call ruled easy at 1 J:U per cent,
l'rime mercantile liaper, 4fa)ii. ster
ling exchange dull but firm at 4S7J
for sixty days and 4891 for demand.
Ikmtls tiovernment bonds were
dull and steady. State bonds were
active anil firm. There was a heavy
falling oft' in the amount of .business
done in railway bonds, sales amount
ing to only $2,777,000, against over
$5,000,000 yesterday. Business was
well distributed, with moderate activ
ity in the Krio issues that have recent
ly attracted attention, anil in the
Toxin I'acilic railway. Closing prices
show irregular changes, ulthou:h
there are more grains than losses. To
sonic extent trading sympathized with
the dealintrs in st(M ks, prices beimt
strong in the forenoon and yielding
more or less later in the day.
Slwks Stocks showed decided
weakness at the opening with declines
of Jo to over 1 per cent., owing to the
trouble among the Transcontinental
Association lines. The early trailing
was accompanied by a further decline
of fractional amounts, except in riieilie
Mail, but this was soon checked, and
husinesK, which had, been decidedly
active, became more quiet, with prices
ptcady to firm, which condition con
tinued until nearly 1 o'clock, although
during the latter part of that time
there was a somewhat greater show of
strength, and the highest prices of tlm
day were made generally in the first
hour after midday. A heavy tone pre
vailed later until during the last hour,
when some weakness was developed,
in which the coal stiwks were most
prominent, the drop in Jickawanua
amounting to 2 percent. ; all the active
stocks yielded nioro or less. Though
.the declines in most cases wen; only
fractional. There was a reaction in
some cases in the final dealings, and
the market closed irregular, but de
cidedly feverish for the most active
rttocks. The announcement of a prac
tical dissolution of theTran.scniitinent
al Association was followed in the
afternoon by the further statement
that the subsidy which has been paid
to the 1'acinV Mail Steamship Com
pany by the I'acilic r.iilfoaiLs was to
terminate at the end ..f thirty days,
and that ollicial actiuii to this effect
bad Wen, taken. In fai t, the news in
the evening centered on the aetion 'of
the Transcontinental Association and
the reduction of rates which it was
alleged had taken placu during the
day on biipincss between points east
of the Missouri river and tlm I'acilic
coast. Prominent operators who have
been conspicuous in bringing about
the advance manifested no dis
isitinn to-day to resist the de
cline. The I'acilic Mail shows
the grwatcst net decline of . the day,
with a hiss of 2; Union I'acifle is
down 1 J, Omaha inferred It, lcla
ware and Hudson and Omaha com
mon each 11, Lake Shore U, North
western and Northern I'acilic preferred
oach lost 1 and the remainder of the
active list less than 1 per cent. The
only notable exception is an advance
of j in Manitoba.
