Tlic Recent Advance iu Stocks oii
Wall Street.
.many buyers realizing
tVbb of many ijnbs-pkices
Social Correspondence of Intelligences
.NEW YORK, Aug 27.?The advance
in stocks has reached a point where purchases
will have lo be made with greater
discrimination than a few weeks ago.
Pome stocks have had unusual advances,
and buyers were Justified In
taking some prollts, no matter how
promising the futuro appeared. This
week there has been considerable realizing
by both insiders and the shrewder
I class of operators. Strong manipula
tion carried some or tno specialties upward
too fait for staplblllty, and ccrtaln
specialties may Boon developo a setback;
t,'. -Ides a halt when it come In the upward
movement of the hint dividend
pavers will naturally deprive the markei
of strong support There was also
a feeling that the making of peace with
Km'n has been about discounted; and
that It 1* now prudent to awaK
trup rcsu.ts and a further itnuryvement
In business before boomthe
market roach more.
A few operators professed fcara of hlgh...
?,?n. v rates. Not any of these fac
tors, however, were of much consequence.
I'rices have advanced to such
hish figures that a moderate reaction,
admitting fresh buying:, interests and
lewlinn the "pyramid" account*, would
lengthen ratner than weaken th<^ market.
Under present favorable conditions
no violent reaction can be expected.
Money rater, may harden somewhat
when crop and Fall trade demands assort
th- mselves, but any. decided rise
In interest rates will rapidly bring gold
fron: I2ur?>i>e and renewed ease In money
Th- most Influential factftc In the stock
mark-1 for tome time t<? come will be
the radical change in public sentiment
from doubt to confidence, which has received
powerful stimulus from the war.
The new feeling of national self-confldence
has exerted an unseen but none
the loss r?-a! cffcct upon individuals; our
leaders have .suddenly Income optimists;
old doubts have been cast aside,
ar.o cow hopes are reviving enterprise
and industry. The effect <?f this state
of affairs is bound to assert itself very
effectively on the Stock Exchange. At
the nmmtnt prices may show eom*? hesitancy
in the forward movement, but
thi.-? can only b temporary. Increased

MB. B. 0. PHELPS, the leading pension
attorney of Belfast, N. Y., writes:
"1 was discharged from the arm j on
account of ill health, and suffered from
heart trouble evor since. I frequently had
fainting and smothering spells. My form
was bent as a man of 60u I constantly woro
an overcoat, oven In summer, for fear of
taking cold. I could not attend to my business.
My rest was broken by severs pains
about the heart and left shoulder. Three
years ago I commenced using Dr. Miles*
Heart Cure, notwithstanding I had used so
much patent medicine and taken drags from
doctors for yoars without being helped. Dr.
Miles'Heart Care restored me to health. It
Is truly a wonderful medicine and It ctfords

for our investments.
My weekftr letter of A"prii 23d contain^
ed the following1, which bears reprinting
at this time owing: to the accurate
diagnosis of the situation:
"The temper in which Walt Street has
received the Intervention decree of Conpress
ar.d the President's ultimatum to
Spain confirms the views expressed in
our recent advices that the Stock Exchange
had discounted the worst probabilities
In the Cuban question and adJusted
the values of investments in advance
to the outcome that has at last
happened. With its rarely erring instinct
of forecast the financial1 community
has foreseen the end from the
beglnnnig of this low? and tedious excKement.
and now that the war has
come It has no further adjustments to
make?no setting under the impulse of
new fears. The men of the Exchange
had made up their minds as to what
amount of discount from the normal
market vahie of securities a war with
Spain catted for. and the remarkable
steadiness of WaM Street during the
past week in evidence of a fixed confidence
in their conclusions."

The bears manifested considerable
confidence that a reaction In the prices
<if stocks was due to-day, and they sold

prices at one time materially -below l ist
night's close. They had on their side a
disposition by many holders to take

who had sold out to the public
after having manipulated (he rise to the
extreme point they considered possible.
But the week's event showed thai other
speculators were waiting to take stocks
at any marked recession in pricess. It
also showed that the profit taking had
resulted in the actual digestion of large
ajnoui^ of dividend paying stocks and
bonds, and the consequent reduction of
the floating supply In tnc market. The
active return in interest and dividends
makes these attractive Investments
while money continues cheap.
To-day's bank statement shows that
the amount of the increase in loans has
been more than withdrawn from the deposit
account It has, in fact, been diverted
to the United Ftates treasury,
and there have not been sufficient government
bond* available for the banks
to offer security to maintain government
money on deposits. The result Is
a loss of cash amounting to $9,590,800,
although New York banks have had not
receipts in the interior currency movement
during the week. The consequence
Is a decline in the surplus of
$7,495,960, even after a reduction in reserve
requirements of $1,194,830. If the
demand from the interior for moving
crops should rise to normal proportions,
surplus reserve would hove to be
promptly replenished from some source.
There is, however, a likelihood that Interior
demand will prove lighter than
usual, owing to abundant interior reserves.
The fall in sterling exchange
makes it evident, also, that the money
market would And relief in gold Imports
without necessitating any great contraction
of credit.

1 Wet weather in England nnd reports
of failure of the wheat crop in one of
the grain producing provinces of Russia
were given as reasons for the Liverpool
quotations of wheat showing an advance
of from %d for September to %d
for December. The advance on the
other side, where a decline had been
confidently looked for. was the principal
reason for higher prices at the opening
here. Behind the improvement at LIv
erpool there was the still abiding cause
' of anxiety to short sellers for Septemi
ber In the existing scarcity of the ^raln
n commercial channels. Comparatively
heavy receipts In the northwest was the
qualifying condition of affairs in the
start that the bears took comfort for
and prevent anything like panic among

amount in store. The week's shipments
of wheat and flour from both coasts was
reported at 3,563,473 bushels, compared
with 3,988,000 bushels the previous week.
Chicago receipts for the dot* were 181
cars, against 100 (he year before. Minneapolis
and Duluth reported 632 cars,
compared with 395 the similar day of
the year before. The total receipts at
western primary nvirkets was 703,000
bushels, compared with 1.182,000 bushels
the year before. Atlantic port clearances
