New York, Dec. 30.-The transactions of
the stock exchange to-day were more or
leas interrupted by the holiday frolics of
the brokers on the floor, but there was
sufilcient trading In the evening up of ac
counts for the close of the year to make
quite an active market and some irreg
ularities in prices.
The Baltimore & Ohio stocks, after
their upward leap of yesterday, were
conspicuously affected, the common fall
ing back nearly 2% and the preferred
over a point. The most active of the
specialties, including Sugar, the tobaccos
and the New York city traction stocks
were also inclined to react, although the
undertone was strong and there- was a
disposition to hold stock for the expected
demand afterthe first of the year. The
expectation of this demand is based on
the sudden relapsed money rates at all
the leading flnancial centers, the London
discount rate falling below Sthe bank rate
to-day, and the Berlin rate showing a
further decline. This gives ground for
hope that the export movement of gold
will be brought to a stop. 4t is possible,
however, that 'the relaxation in foreign
money rates may be based on expecta
tations of futther supplies of gold from
this coyntry. This being the case, bank
ers. believe there may be recurrences of
money stinaess in January. The day's
trading demonstrated that the level of
prices still offdrs inducements for In
v.ptment buying. The sales of small lots
of less than 100 shares continued even
more conspicuous thanl on recent days.
All grades of stocks were embraced in
this demand down to the non-dividend
paying stocks with only remote pros
pects of return.
The prevailing sentiment on the ex
change was decidedly bullish. The con
etent striving of the financial world to
anticipate events is responsible for the
paradox of a lively recovery in prices of
securities and easy money condlitions t
the last week of the year. This tendency
of the financial world is responsible for
the week's events in a two-fold sense.
Last week's panic conditions were the
results of preparations for the moltey
pinch which has long been looked for at
the close of the year, owing to the ex
traordinary magnitude of the January 1
disbursements this year. Last wetek's
forced liquidation overdid itself as such
violent movements are eritain to do and
WVall etreet found itself unexpectedly
flush of funds with prices of securities
at the lowest level of the year. and a
practically universal conv'iction that the
beginning of the new year will mark a
period of. easier money, with the regu
lar reflux of funds from active use in
business to the world's flnancial centers.
The speculative world thlerefore expected
an abrupt about-face and rushed to buy
stocks to anticipate the good times sup
posed to be coming with the new year.
The demand was particularly urgent
from the short interest which had over
extended itself last week and worked
some violent recoveries in stocks whllh
had suffered most severely from last
week's panic. For instance Metropolitan
Street railway which closed on Saturday,
Dec. 16, at 107, sold in the panic at 147
and rallied this week to 1758½1. which.
allowing for the dividend deducted is
equivalent to over 180. In fact the gen
eral level of prices has recovered to a bout
that which existed before the panih.
From the speculative standpoint doubts
have arisen whether the violence of this
recovery was not excessive.
The following table will give an idea of
the violence of the speculative movement
in the stock market during the last year
and will account for the wide vibrations
of the last two weeks in the attempts to
find the equilhrium of the true values.
Those stocks have been selected in :ihlirh
the variations have been the widest, but
generally speaking they are also those
In which transactions have been largest.

New York late yesterday. When an addi

FINANCIAL REVIEW,
New York, Dec. 30.-The Financier
says: The statement of the New York
clearing nouse banks for the week ended
Dec. 30 shows a further gain of $784,000 in
the surplus reserve, the total now stand
ing at $11,168.073. As was the case dur
ing the previous week, all the gaint by
the bank went to swell the reserve fund.
The stateme- t is favorable and indicates
that an influx of funds from the interior
in the past six days wnd probably quite
as heavy as has been estimated. The loss
of gold to Europe by Saturday.s steam
er does not count, but the exports of a
week ago figure to the full extent. Tha
outward flow, therefore, has been almost
made up by receipts and the gain in legal
tenders represents the surplus shipment
from the interior.
The banks have mainttained Itheir posi
tions as far cash is concerned, but they
have added little to their loaning capaci
ity. If the experience of January last
year is a criterion, heavy receipts for the
next few, weeks may be expected from
domestic centers, with the difference that,
whereas la.t winter the New York banks
retained all the money that was for
warded, that they must now provide for
tihe demands that Europe Is now making
for American geld. Still, the present ar
rangements with the treasury are such
that there will be no further drain of do
mestic funds into government vaults on
operations that take money out of use
even more effectively than gold exports.
The continuance of the movement is im
portant in that it determines the extent,
to whilch the lbanks can expand their
loans.
The same factors incident to the trans
fer of funds whlich mark the January
period in the 'nited States are operative
abroad. Conservative bankers are fig
uring that the return flow of money from
various centers into the great foreign
banks will tend to make rates easier
abroad and affect exchange quotations
to the point of stopping exports of gold
from New York.
If this be Ihe thease the banks here will
probably recuperate their reeources, or
at least they will be In a position to ex
tend their commitments. As it is.'loans
are now almost stationary, while depos
its are being reduc td. No one looks,
however, for the burst of expansion that
marked the opening of the great rise in
spleculative prices in January last.

Twin Bridges, Dec. 20.-Word reached
town yesterday of the death of Miss May
Andereou at Parrot. It is reported death
was caused by smallpox. Parrot is only
17 miles from Twin Bridges and the town
seems to he alarmed for fear the disease
will break out here. As the place is not
incorporated, the clttzens may ask the
county commissioners to appoint a board
of health. .ith full power to act. Vac
cination is being observed and, as the
sanitary conditions are of the best, it is
doubtful if the disease appears here at
all. However, the citizens are going to
be on the safe side and are taking every
precaution. The travel from here to
Butte has dropped off considerably asince
the epidemic appeared in that city.
Christmas Appropriately Observed.
Christmas was a beautiful day In Twin
Bridges. It seemed more like Fourth of
July weather, as there was not a particle
of snow in the valley. The usual home
dinners were served and the small
Christmas tree was largely in evidence.
Superintendent WViley Mountjoy and hie
estimable wife prepared a handsome
Christmas tree for the little waifs at
tihe Orphans' home. which was immensely
enjoyed by the state's children, and also
by a large nlumber of visitors. In the
evening a grand ball was given by Messrs.
Powell. (enlton and Lewis. An intermis
sion was had at midnight for the sup
per at the Stark and doIning was re
ltmned and continued until 6 o'clock on
Tucsday mortnting.
Want of Evidence.
Bert McCoy. who was arrested in Butte
recently by the stock Iinspector on the
charge of horse stealing' In the colnty,
had his preliminary hearing at 'Virginia
iity yesterday and was released from
custody for the want of sufficient evi
dence.
An Attempt at Suicide.
Something of a sensation was created
at 'ony recently when Dave iHeckley of
that plare concluded life was not worth
liilng and forthwith proceeded to do
away with himself. lie oc'upied ai chair
ill a saloon at the time and without any
warning took a knife from his pocket
and .laoshed his neck twice just alo\ve
the "Adam's apple." Luckily he missed
the jugular vein aind also the windplipe.
After taking the knife from the man, :t
physician was summoned. The chlances
for his erecovery are good and he says he
is glad of it.
