The Demand for Bank Accommo
dations Moderate.
Currency Tinkering by Congress
Happily Ended.
The Produce Market, Active, and Gen
erally Stronger—Barley thj
Chief Exception,
An Important Advance in Pro
visions—Wheat Irregular.
The week opens unusually quiet, especially ns
there was an accumulation of two days’ corre
spondence. Orders from tiie country for bank
accommodations did nut meet expectations, mid
city customers were backward In their offerings.
A few of (lie banks report discount lines about
as high os they care to have them, while others
have a surplus they would bo very glad to invest
In gilt-edged paper at 008 per cent, but the reg
ular rate is 8. for small parcels 0010 per ccut
may bo charged.
The defeat of tho bill repealing the Resump
tion act (a a source of great congratulation
among our bankers and business-men gener
ally. It is strange that the Colons at Wash
ington, or at least a considerable portion of
them, must be constantly “ tinkering ” with the
currency, as Ocu. Garfield expressed <l. They
are aa Iguornul of the whole aubjeet ns they uro
of their own Insignificance, except perhaps in
their ability to mischief, mid damage Immense
ly the great business mid financial interests of
the country. “ Hands off,” Messrs. Congress
men, who think von master grout financial prob
lems in two weeks. Lot (he countrr bo spared
any more of your “tinkering,” mid the people
will take care of themselves. We have coin,
bank and greenback currency, all good and
likely—lndeed, quite sure—to bo so, If Congres
sional empirics in finance will only
give the country time to prosper by
Jetting the people manage their ownnlfalrs In
their own way under the laws, “ subject ” only,
as Douglas used to say, “to the Constitution
of tho United States.”
The market for Eastern exchange between
banks continues weak and rates Irregular. To
the public they ore steady at 1-10 premium.
The bank clearings were $3,800,000.
There were withdrawn from the Dank of En
gland to-day £IOO,OOO in nulllon,—not enough, of
coarse, to make a ripple la Its account, for
eign exchange Is steady at our quotations. Bco
table. For quotations of English consols and
French rentes see late Now York dispatches.
Money in Now York is very abundant. On
call 3 per cent Is about the figure, and first-class
paper can oc readily placed at 1(33 percent
above the call figure.
The demand for Government bonds continues
active. Thcfoliowlngsrothequotstlons: United

United Stales currency os, 131. Tho market Is
still buffering for the want of the new 4 per cent
s bonds. Dealers aro promised n supply during
tho present week, but most likely It will be
exhausted in a day or two, as there are many
parties anxiously waiting, with cash la hand,
to grub them as soon as they arrive.
'i ne stock market yesterday was altogether
favorable to the bears. At the opening prices
were barely steady and tho next quotations
lower by [email protected]%, from which the general de
cline began. Union Pacific fell to 73tf, Doing
stf off. Erie remained steady at about 37.
Ohio 11%, against 19 on Friday. Western
Union from 103 to 101. and back to lOltf.
Northwestern common from GOtf tosotf, ami
back to 57tf. Bt. Joe preferred 44 to 43tf.
Jersey Central 45 to 43. Hock Island 132tf to
133. Canada Southern 57tf toSOtf. Bt. Paul
40tf to SOtf. Alton 81, cx-divldcnd. While
it Is apparent that there have been considerable
realizations, tho market shows signs of
manipulation in tho leading stocks, which
Indicates that the* cliques still control
tho situation and will advance prleds
lo duo season. Much higher prices are predicted
for the stocks of the Northwestern and Union
Pacific Companies based upon the favorable re
sults of a through connection, while the con
struction of the new line from Omaba via Chll
llcotho to connect with the 8U Louis, Kansas
City & Northern to Bt. Louis, thence via the
Wabash and the Erie, Is. regarded as a most val
uable addition to the business of the parties In

erful combinations, favored by tho accumula

unlikely that the results claimed may be accom

Nbw Your, Feb. 24.—Governments were
Kuilrond bonds were irreculnr.
Statu securities were quiet.
The slock market to-day was active, but clos
ing sates show a tlccllnc In almost the entire list.
Considerable weakness was dlsolaycd at the
opening, mid a free selling movement was In*
anguratrd, which resulted In a decline ranging
from >4(510;*, Union Pacific leading the down
ward movement under largo sales said to have
been for account of a prominent holderof stock.
This was followed by a fractional recovery, Imt
during tiio afternoon another decline set in,
Northwestern and Kansas Pacific showing the
greatest depression, (tie former selling dow'n to
CsJ*,—a dccltno of 4,—and the latter dropping
from 20 to IU%. The weakness In Northwestern
was due to rumors of a disagreement
among the members of tho full pool.
Western Union fell oIT from 103 to 100)*, but
recovered to 101J*. In final dealings the market
was firmer, wltb a recovery from the lowest
point of tho latter Northwestern com
mon. The J’ost says tho decline Is due wholly
to speculative considerations, there helm:
nothing in the respective properties whoso
shares are dealt In to warrant the changes of
tin* day, ami the Cointntrcfal expresses an
opinion’ that the old cliques in Northwestern
mid the new* syndicate in Union Pacific of last
week ore not iu accord, and somebody is sup
posed to have been cheated. Transactions were

firm under a continued good demand.
Oils were reported quiet, with no quotable vari
ation In prices. Lard, linseed, and turpentine
remain firm. Bagging was dull and unchanged.
The tobacco market remains unsettled. Coal
was firm at previous prices.
Lumber was in fair request amt steady. The
shipments are increasing, and the trade between
city dealers Is growing in n corresponding ratio.
Wool and brooqi-coru were steady, the order
business being up to the recent average. T ire
sales of seeds were light, ami the leading varie
ties tame under fair offerings of rattier low
grades. Flax and the late seeds were firm.
Jlay continues quiet, and hides in moderate re
quest at former prices. Green fruits were plen

quiet, the city sales being light, and few orders
are' now received from outside points. Tho
street offerings of poultry were fair, and, ex
cepting turkeys, lower prices were accepted, the
inquiry being light.

IT. J. Detmers, Government Inspector, has Is*
sued a coritilcato to the effect that, up to the pres
ent time, no case of pleura-pneumonia or other
contagious disease of cattle has been discovered
at tho Union Stock-Yards. Probably at no pre
vious period wore Western cattle in a healthier
condition than sttho present time.

CATTLE—ltccotvciUlurlng Sunday and Monday,
3,050 head; same time Inst week, 3,800 bold.
For tho butter grades of cattle the market wasdnll
and lower. Tho fact that the receipts were larger
thnr usual for the first day of the week, and that
news from the East was baa, led (0 a restricted
shipping movement and a decline In the class of
slock usually taken for the Eastern markets
of a pood full 15020 per 100 lbs as com
pared with Friday's quotations. Butchers' stult
did not snare in the floprussluu; in fact, common
grades wero active, and were salable at as satisfac
tory price* as on any day of the present season.
There were a number of lino droves on sale, but
wltn one or two exceptions there wero no transfers
at u higher flpnro than 84.75. In fact, it had to be
n very pood bunch of steers that would fetch $4.50.
Sie great bulk of the sales lo shippers was under
ut figure. Trading was at an extreme range of
nutcliors and cannors bought prin
cipally at 82.7>.*0 L 75, and feeders at 82.8 >03.00,
Fur the latter class there was not much cull. Oulr
a small proportion of the supply was left over, and
the markei closed steady:
