Stocks Reading stocks again en
gaged the largaet amount of attention,
sales' being nearly one-third the
amount dealt in, and it was the most
active day at tb Stock Exchange for
many weeks. Its net advance, con
side nrg the state of the maiket for a
long time back, h phenomenal. The
baying begun at the opening and
every etory that has ever been circu
lated in regard to the Reading road
wes brought cut; but it was reported
in the afternoon and received that the
difficulties bad positively bfen ad
justed, and the tales toe last two

leading feature outside of Reading,
and it advanced materially during the
day. The crargets, with the excep

were comiaraiively quiet, bat all par
t'cipated in the advance. There wai
some Loadrm buting of Union Pa

the action of the Northern Pacific in
repard to the lease oi the Oregon
Transcontinental and the resolution to
build its own branch bees, continued
to have an adverse influence on bota
of tbe i tucks, and they recorded a ma
terial decline in the face of an advanc
ing market. The upward movement
today, whiie rapid, was subject to two
or three setbacks, and the market
finally c'osed on a reaction rather
heavy, but close to tin btst piicej

until toward the end of tbe firat nour,
alter which they advanced smart

occuried, but the advance es
soon leeumed, and about 2 o'clock
