Impression is Renewed That
Liquidation is Over

Market Was Almost at a Standstill for
Long Intervals and Prices Drifted
Aimlessly—Selling for
London Account.
N«w York, July 6.—Very early in to- j
day’s transactions in the stock market
the same scarcity of stocks offering for j
sale developed as yesterday. This renewed
the impression that the liquidation was (
over for the present. This conclusion was
accepted with extreme caution by the pro
fessional element owing to the miscaicula
tion of some symptoms yesterday when
the market sold off weakly at the last
after a day of striking firmness and
freedom from selling pressure.
The excessive dullness which develop
ed today on the midday rise was the re
flection of this suspicious attitude. The
market was almost at a standstill for
long Intervals and prices drifted aimless
ly until the entrance of new buying or
ders into the market caused the succes
sive upward movement.
The discussion about the stock exchange
(hinged 'largely on the technical condition
of the market and took little account of
the general situation of affairs.
News of general conditions has been in
fact almost undeviatingly favorable
throughout the period of decline in the
stock market. Conjectures as to the ex
tent and strength of the short inter
est in the market made up the staple of
the discussion. A large borrowing of
stocks by individual firms, which are not
ordinary conspicuous in speculative deal
ings on the exchange, was reported. On
the face of it the borrowing of stocks
for delivery supported a short sale of a j
similar amount. The importance of the in
cident was its reflection on the suspicious
and unsettled state of professional spec
ulative sentiment. The opening market
still showed the effects of the disappoint- 1
anent over the miscarriage of yesterday's
attempt to carry prices higher.
The opening weakness was aggravated
by selling for London account. Consid
erable dlsqultude was caused in that cen
ter by the ministerial* remarks in par
liament of the hazard of an outbreak of
a religious war in Egypt, with the con
sequence to be looked for of expensive
outlay for the conduct of a campaign.
London’s discount market was not affect
ed and continued to work lower with fa
voring effect upon New York's prospects

also rather easier, rates for call loans I
•falling during the day. For time loans
the freer offerings were confined to the
shorter periods, while for six months
loans and longer carrying over the end
of the year money was reported to be
still scarce and hard to get. Foreign ex
change held most of yesterday’s recovery
which was believed to be above the level
of profit for gold engagements. Estimates
of the currency movement with the in
terior by express varied from a small
loss to a gain of a few hundred thous
and dollars, the movement towards this
center on balance having evidently abated
from that of last week. On sub-treasury
operations the banks have gained during
the week $603,000.
In connection with the recovery in prices
the reports were revived of a supposed
deal for the Great Northern’s ore lands
by the United States Steel corporation
and of a rumored intention to increase
the Amalgamated copper dividend. It was
not until late in the day that the rising
tendency proved convincing to the skep
tical traders. Their belated buying then
made the closing strong.

Ware & Leland’a Market Letter.
The monthly report on the condition
of the growing crop was the event of
the cotton week.
The figures showing a decline of 1.3 per
cent since June 5. were not quite as high
as many expected, hut were in a measure
offset by the rains following the compila
tion of the figures the latter part of
The decline in the Texas condition was
in a great measure responsible for the
lower general average.
Since the makeup of the report, how
ever, Texas had the necessary rains and
this knowledge prevented very much of
an advance after the figures were re
ceived. Since Tuesday the market has
advanced on short covering and has en
joyed one of the normal recoveries after
a break at this season of the year. The
cotton crop is far from being made and
all sorts of trials are still before the
For this reason, shorts take profits on
declines and wait for recoveries before
selling again.
At the same time many are willing to
buy on breaks looking to an advance on
! the first bad weather.
In this way the market has become a
scalping affair and can hardly be ex
pected to change radically until the crop
news changes for the worse. Reports from
the south show fine crop prospects and
with any sort of weather during the
balance of the season, a good crop should
result. But so much cotton is needed
next year that no one is inclined to an
| tlcipate events as long as weather de
velopments continue favorable, fluctua
tions are likely to continue as they have
been for two months past.
Attractive ad». are illuatrated. Let
the Gawk mAke your illuetratlonA

The opening was steady at a decline of 1
point to an advance of 2 points, and the
market steadied up right after the open

little buying through wire ant! commission
houses, which was promoted by firm
cables, the relative firmness of the spot
market and the absence of the agresslve
pressure. After selling up to a net ad

Dry Goods.
New York. July 6.—Dress goods buyers
are coming Into town rapidly to begin op
erations on new seasonable goods, which
opened by first bands tn the dry goods
market today at 5 to 1') per cent advance.
Buyers of medium weight goods in alaplA
cottons are showing a tendency to oper
ate more freely, and the market Is firmer
In consequence. Cotton yarns are very
active and fine numbers more scarce.
Abercrombie 4 Co.’s Market Letter.
An effort was made to advance the mar
ket today on the theory that the recent
Texas drouth remained practically un
broken and on the assumption that the
alternating rains reported from the south
Atlantic states were causing rapid de
terioration. The course of the Liverpool
market Indicated that longs were at work
on the same proposition In the English
market, it having closed at an advance
of !i to fi points, whereas spots were
reported dull and unchanged on sales of
MOO bales, middling. S.08. The rainfall
cast of the Mississippi river In the Caro
llnas and Oeotgla. has not been excessive
and will serve to dispel a 11 fear of a
drouth in that section during the critical
period of late July and early August.
Meanwhile there occurred beneficial
showers in pretty much all sections of
South Texas today, light rains being re
ported from Galveston. Houston and Se
gnln sharing in the distribution of moist
ure. These reports of rains In Ihe south
west and an official forecast for fair
weather In the south Atlantic states, ex
cept Rhowers on the coast, checked the
buying movement. According to reports
the crop tn South Texas Is supposed to
be from ten days to two weeks late
Gibert 4 Clays Market Letter.
Liverpool cables denoted a more bullish
trend of sentiment, which culminated In
advance of from 5 to li points for the
day on options Spot sales continued
small, but steady, the day's business
amounting to 3000 bales. Prices unchanged.
The continued rains In the Atlantic
states caused some little buying by room
scalpers and also some covering by im
patient shorts, all of which, however,
was insufficient In volume to bring about

more than a slight reaction. During the
day advices were received recording
heavy and fairly general rains In south
western Texas and reliable advices from
Waco expressed the opinion that the
precipitations occurred In localities most
In need of moisture and that present crop
prospects for Texas could hardly be bet
ter. The showers that for the past few
days have fallen on the Atlantic coast are
not seriously considered as having caused
extensive damage, and a few' days of
clear weather would in all probability be
sufficient to enable the grass and weeds,
which form the basis of the majority of
complaints, all to be removed.
Loveman & Co.’s Market Letter.
Ablaze with anger because the south
persistently refuses to go long of cotton
on the present fine crop prospects, tin*
bear leader in New York broke loose
today with a violent message which I
aroused the deepest feeling of Indigna
tion among the members of the local ex
change. Indirectly, he accused the south
of lying about the condition of the cot
ton crop. Anyone who is at all familiar
with the character of the southern peo
ple knows that while they may at times
exaggerate bullish conditions, they are
extremely averse to propagating bearish
views, but in this instance cannot blind
themselves to the fact that crop pros
pects in the south up to the present time
are most favorable for a good yield of
cotton. Out of this fact grows the pres
ent market situation. Southern specula
tors will not buy cotton at this high
level because they feel that the crop
outlook Is too good to justify their *ak
ing the long side. On the other hand,
there Is a natural Inclination against
taking the short side of the market and
hence speculation for the time being Is
apparently dead. Should any very unfn
j vorable features develop In the crop sit
uation. the south would quickly enough
start a bull campaign. Weather and crop
conditions are being closely watched by
southern interests which are sensible
enough not to attempt to bull the new
crop months at the present level until
there is evidence at hand of general de
terioration in the condition of the crop.
The price of cotton In the local market
Is still unchanged at 10%c.
A heavy stock of fruits of great variety
was seen on Morrts avenue yesterday
morning, but sold readily In the. evening.
Watermelons are down to 15 and 25 cents,
but otherwise there are no material
changes In quotations.
