Prices on New York Chnme Have Undergone Kcuction.

THE WOOL SITUATION. Special Correspondence of Intelligencer. I NEW YORK, Oct. 1?Prices on the itock exchange have undergone a reaction, the end of which la difficult to determine. There have been good' reasons for the present decline. -Tho buying power of the public ha?-been exfcniiflted. and veace having bfeerv amply discounted, some new stimulus wus ! r.ri os.-ury for continuance or the up- ' ward movement. The big holders of Mock have materially lessened their | holdings and are therefore qoUe willing to see a lower range of values on whlcb j to base a fresh advance. At . the same ' time the public are stubborn bulls and I refuse to sell while railroad and busl- j t.css prospects continue encouraging.. | Jet, temporary conditions permit dem- , onstratlone on the bear uldeo? the mar- i kot, and so Jong as the leaders on the 1 hull side hold aloof, they are likely to meet with more or less success. We do not attach much Importance to the political situation. Just now speculators are putting unfavorable constructions upon the drift of politics, mainly to suit their own ends. It Is to their advunt- ! age to frighten timid holders of stock, j The vitaJ point of the next election, j however, wlM be the sound money vote, -J I. kannllv nn nrnnnpet of Its ' UIIU Uicic ? ?? ? diminution. On the contrary. It Is probable that the next congress will show both branches of the legislature to be on the side of sound money; arfd the annual political scare on this Issue Is likely to be of much less consequence than usual. Perhaps the most favorable factor In the outlook Is the price of wheat, TS cents (or September contracts In New York against 95 cents a year ago. Farmers are In consequence holding bark supplies to the detriment of railroad earnings. This, however, Is only a temporary element, a* wheat must come forward later in large quantities to mwt foreign demand?, and if at Improved prices 90 much* the better for the West at large. A good deal of comment Is also heard- about cotton having touched the lowest price on record. Owing to the reduced cost of production in the new districts, which now grow a large proportion of the crop, j this is not ao serious a matter as appears. In some districts the excessively low price will be severely felt, but the diversification of industry In the South Is proving an qffset, and In the newer regions the large crop means fair prosperity. Cdtton growing is conducted on such peculiar economic conditions that large crops and low prices do not always mean the same effects, as in case of other crops. uro hnvo nn th<? frills of lOWPT prices exaggerated paHtlcal uncertainties. a backward graii* .movement-and ; correspondingly diminished railroad earnings, together with the fact that the market leaden*, encouraged by the hreak in th? Industrials are working for lower prices. On the side of higher prices we have an assurance of improved political conditions and an era of 6teady business prosperity. In the long run the latter influences will assert themselves. For the present, however. they are temporarily overruled by the first named conditions, leaving the situation favorable chiefly to quick turns The present conditions influencing stock exchange interests may thus be summarized: (1) Although the money market is steadily advancing toward ease, yet the unexpected suspension of Imports of gold and the firmness of foreirn Mtchnnc* have nuallfied the ex pectatlon of early extreme ea*e; which l?an clement somewhat In favor of the bear side for the time being. (2) There ha* been, for some time pa*:, a r.cutly realizing on stocks. Most of the Iarg ?operator# have sold out and se*n? Aimposed to defer buying for a rise until prlccs have touched a- lower level. (3) The general cutting of rates on railroad freights has a depressing effect; for although moat of the roads show good gro*? earnings, yet It Is felt that the net earnings can hardly be eatisfcctory when the business Is done on unrcmuneratlve charge*. (4) There 1b. at the moment, an abatement of the receipt of grain, owing to the disposition of the farmers to hiVfl hni'U tholr rrnn? fnr Mirhr.r nrlrPR! this fact has also Its effect In checking the supply of export bills ami thereby diminishing the encouragement to Imputing gold. The reports of Improved wheat crops In some foreign countries has a tendency to encourage this drift, possibly with the effect of preventing s-uch an advance In homtf T-rires as wiouki Induce our farmers to ell. (S) There Is also ?>me disappointment at the absence of a commercial boom consequent upon the cessation of the war. There aoDears to be. In most of the merchandise markets, a fair amount of business doing; but operations drag liva way which suggests the old condition of oversupply, with the nature) effect of some weakness In Price*,?which always means reluctance to buying except on the hand-tomouth policy. (C) In the higher circle* of finance, some attention Is attracted to the backwardness of the Spanish officials in Cuha In th?*lr preparations for evacuation. and stjli more to the constant reports from Bpiiilh <u)d current hm from Paris.

The Features of the Mouey aud Stock Market*. NEW YORK, Oct 1.?The stock market during to-day's short session gave striking evidence thalt the power of the bear faction hod not diminished in effecting lower prices. The break In To 4hft mnrn tInnn 1 in view UilliUJ non uie ?av.. ... . _ . of the half holiday. No new develop* ments concerning M?e speculation In this stock were announced and the bears pursued the same diligent tactics that have been responsible for the tremendous drop this week. Now spots of weakness have appeared every day and to-day's development was Consolidated (Jaa. Competition of the electric lighting companies and a rival gas plant furnished tho basis for a break of points. The railway list had an Interval of strength, but the Influence of the specialties was too overpowering and losses resulted. The bank statement exceeded the favorable expectations, nnd its publication checked the break. In a discussion of the financial developments of the week the industrial group mum hnv?j first consideration. The pyrotechnlcal movements of these stocks disturbed general confidence, anil this condition found expression in nn'enor1 tw...i,in Hon 'of nil classes of secur ltle*. Rumors regarding the status of Industrial properties were circulated freely and t!he opera Hons by the bear fartlon were conducted with marked brilliancy. Influential speculative Interests were apparently banded together to create demoralisation among holders, and reports of toad faith' toetween Interested clique* were assigned as causes for the spasmodic attacks In various quarters. Liquidation In the group was uninterrupted throughout, nnd the volume of stop orders reached exceeded any previous outpouring. Weakly margined accounts were swept away and banking institutions In some case* took exception to the Industrials as collateral for loans. Difficulty In protecting holdings necessarily caused sacrifices of the standard railway stocks and the advnntago secured by the bears In this connection wn? responsible for the curtailment of the outside demand. Monetary conditions also exerted an Important bearing on the course of the market \ and Although apprehension as to stringent war considerably allayed the occasional flurries that occurred unsettled speculation. Tobacco was the dominant feature and the deluge of stocks which aocornpanied the break colored reports that Inside Interests were unloading. Gossip had it that the recent jump above 150 was for the purpose of squeezing a powerful short Interest and. now that that Incident was closed the downward course received acquiescence from the manipulative interests in control. The numerous coups that have been effected In this specialty since Its Introduction to the stock market has drilled public dealings and reduced trading to the more daring professionals. The magnitude of the trading In the specialties naturally served to promote. a sympathetic tendency in the railroad list, but developments there inciuueu vntuy lavuiowic tawkuis ?iuwh stemmed the reaction. In f&ot standard Issues on the whole exhibited remarkable resisting powers and moved Independently at intervals. But the persistent raids elsewhere robbed the list of monetary advantages. The bears followed a systematic course and diverted their efforts from one atock to another until the entire industrial group was hammered. Domestic conditions reflected a continuance of the business expansion which is particularly marked in some lines. Activity in the Iron and steel trade which Is considered a fair barometer of the general situation, confirmed confident predictions as to the general outlook and the steady Increase In west-bound traffic on the leading lines offset the light grain movement. The latter circumstances must eventually be remedied by increased movem?at on higher wheat prices or forced shipments. Belated borrowers of call money had to pay as h1ah as six Der cent for accommodations but this rate was only temporary. Average rates were 304 and time fundi* and discount rates were decidedly easier.^Shipments of currency to the interior showed a notable decrease and the available funds In the market were Increased by the gold arrivals and anticipatory Interest payments by the government. The bond market moved in sympathy with stock fluctuations and showed more activity on the easier money conditions. Government bonds were remarkably well held throughout the week, concessions being confined to half per cent in the 2s and % each in the 3s and 4s. BONDS AND STOCK QUOTATIONS. V. 8. new 3s lG54ft Ore.

CHICAGO?Enormous receipts at primary western points, Increased Russian offerings and estimates of large cropa here and abroad were at the bottom of the weakness jhown by wheat to-day. Besides, trading was excessively dull. December closed at %c decline. Corn and oats were stagnant, each market declining about %c In sympathy with wheat. Provisions were weak, partly on account of grain and partly on bearish Independent features, closing 15c lower. f The opening In wheat was at a slight advance over yesterday's closing price, December starting at 62%c. The improvement was apparently due to Bradstreet's figures on the week's export, which were put at 5,307,000 bushels, compared with 5,025,000 bushels the previous week. This had caused a strong curb market yesterday, and the strength was still noticeable at to-day's opening. Shorts were moderate buyers for a short time after the start, buying being heavy enough to cause a further slight advance, December getting to G2%c. and holding for a time at that figure. Then the market slowly began to weaken, and for the rest of the nrt session the trend of prices was steadily downward. There was plenty of news of a bearish tenor, but trading was so extremely dull, many of the most prominent brokers having gone to Omaha to witness the peace festivities at the exposition, that the decline was- - very gradual. Northwest receipts were heavy, Minneapolis and Duluth reporting 1,277 cars. against 1,091 earn Inst week arm 1,183 cars a year ago. Chicago receipts were 337 cars. 36 of contract quality. Primary receipts for the day were 1,692,000 bushels, which were largely in excess of last year's. Atlantic port cloarancex. exclusive of Newport News and gulf ports, amounted to 626,000 bushels. Brokers reported an almost entire absence of cash bids at anything approaching a working oasis. Liverpool was %d lower fo* futures, though spot wheat was unchanged. London reported freer of? ferlngs of Russian wheat. This, with foreign estimates of Russian and wapI.iw cmn hiWh nt which were very heavy, deepened the Impression In tho local market. The Orange Judd Farmer estimate of 700,000.000 bu.'heL* as the United States crop also helped to push prices downward. The market became very heavy toward the close, demand almost,dying out. December sold down to 62c, and closed at ??2@62ViiC. There was very Mttto trade In corn, and prlccs changed very little. The feeling was easy, principally through sympathy with wheat. The cash demand was slow. Receipts were 849 cars. Clearances were moderate. Country offerings were on a small scale. December ranged from 29%?>29ttc to 29%c, and closed lower at 29Vic. The market for oats was stagnant, the pit at times being almost deserted. Prices were Influenced by wheat and corn, and averaged a little lower. Ele valor people were sellers of May. Receipts were 468 car*. There was no cash Inquiry. May ranged fr un 22%o to 22%c, and closed a shade lower at 22%022Hc. Provisions were dull and heavy. The opening was lower on yellow fever Dews and heavy lard deliveries, and a .still further decline resulted from sympathy with wheat, the market closing at about the bottom figure*: Packers bought sparingly of ribs. At the close January pork was IB c lower ?t 19 02H; January lard 10c lower at 44 85 and January ribs 10c lower nt )4 67%. Estimated receipt* to-day: Hogs, 36,000 head.
