Stocks The general iinnresHion t
the Stock Exchange this morning be
fore the opening of tlie board was that
tne strike on the Gould system had
been settled definitely and absolutely,
and when the . maket owned first
prices showed very decided gains over
uie closing ngurea lat week, the ad'
vances ranging from 4 to nearlv 2 per
cent. Thera was a rush by the shorts
to cover, anu antfier wish by the
longs, and for a Bhort time the ex
citement ran high. Before the end of
the first hour it began to be whispered,
however, that there was a hitch in the
iietruuuuuuB, una air. fjould. it was
alleged, was authority for the state-
ment that he had made no overtures
to Mr. Powderly, and that the dis
patch to Mr. Hoxie had been written
before he saw Mr. Powderly yesterday,
and later it was stated that the knights
had refused to resume work until
their differences had been arbitrated.
The exchanges run on this statement
through the remainder of the day,
and at 3 o'clock Wall Bt-eet was un
certain whether work had been re
sumed or whether nothing would be
done until further negotiations were
settled. The market consequently
was a hesitating one, with a drooping
tendency after 12 o'clock, at times a
decided weakness, but there was a
rally just before 3 o'clock, the market
Anally closing firm, at small fractions
to over 1 per cent, higher than Sat ur
day's closing, the greatest net gain
being made by Missouri Pacific, which
