in First Hour—Railroad List Bolstered New York, January 28.—Wall street took a more c heerful view of stock market con ditions today. Prices of most of the lead ing stocks were marked up 1 to 2 points with a number of much larger gains in special instances. Considerable business was done in the first hour of trade at d more than the eVirc session of yesterday. Although the pace slackened later the level of prices was well maintained. American Can issues were unusually active and scored the most conspicuous advance of the session. Bullish impulses from several matters contributed to the quota of stock market information which ahaped sentiment among more hopeful lines. The railroad list was bolstered by ex cellent reports of December of several large western systems, including Union Pacific. Northern Pacific and Northwest ern. Formation of the International Har vester corporation was construed in 'the Wall street point of view as placing the Harvester interests in a more favorable light, notwithstanding the statement from, Washington that this action would not al ter the aspect of the government’s case. Renewed activity of largo speculative cliques in the shape of bullish manipula tion of special stocks helped to stimu late the market. Most potent of all the direct influences was the tenor of Gov ernor Sulzer’s message to the legislature dealing with stoek exchange legislation. The message was generally regarded as moderate in tone, despite the protest voiced by (he stock exchange authorities and went fur toward relieving the uneasi ness which has been felt concerning the possible character of* New York legisla tion. How largely today's movements were the result of these influences, rather than of technical market conditions, were matters of spec illation. A few traders took the view that the short interest was of unwieldy proportions and that the advance was due primarily to this condition. it was a significant feature of the trad in gthat when the list showed a tendency to recede business came almost to a cessa tion, indicating slocks were being hold firmly. Extent of the short interest apparently has made the trade sensitive to bullish Influences. Bonds were strong with some material gains among convertible issues. Thetotal sales, par value, $2,603,000.

Corn and Provisions Decline Chicago, January 28.—Wheat and oats were steady while corn and provisions de clined. Trade was dull. Reselling of Wheat in France reflected in the quota tions from Liverpool and Paris brought about selling in this market early. There was not a great deal of it, but what was apparent was aprectable. Ijtter the early loss was more tliRit offset. There were •rumors of export sales at Missouri river points. These were denied as persistent ly as they arose The European visible Increased as much as tiie American vis ible decreased. Wimiipeg reported that only t per cent of the crop remains In farmers' hands, the crop having been marketed with remarkable celerity, owing to fine weather. Seaboard clearances were 460,000 bushels. Primary receipts were *9^000, against 425,000 bushels last year. Corn fluctuated nervously between nar row limits but the main influence in a net decline of Vu74c for May was the unloading of a long line here. Of tilts shorts took advantage. Oats were sold on a small scale down by pit traders while demand came from mission houses. When shorts discovered tiie nature of the support they covered and the early decline was recovered. Pro visions started higher on the commission house demand but there w‘as plenty for sale on tiie bulge and the close was a net decline of 5 cents. Packers were pat 1 to be selling short.

January 28.—While some what irregular, the cotton market made a generally steady showing today and closed steady with last prices showing net gains of from 9 to 17 points. The market opened steady at an ad vance of 6 to 6 points in response to bet ter cables than due. but yesterday s Into break evidently had made a considerable impression mi local sentiment, and the appearance of near months selling orders in the hands of leading spot brokers seemed partly responsible for a renewal of local bear pressure and scattering liquidation. Prices eased off in consequence, with the near months relatively weak, and shortly after the opening January showed j a net loss of about 10 points while March was 4 points lower and later months were around the closing figures of yes terday. The near month selling, however, was accompanied by purchases of July, supposedly in the way of undoing old straddles, and the market soon steadied with prices becoming firmer in the aft ernoon owing to bullish southern spot advices, covering by early sellers and eontinued'bull support. The closing quota tions wery within some 3 or 4 points of the best. The census report showing ;tr,6.v74 bales of llnters. according to oil mill returns up to the first of January, attracted some little attention and may have inspired party of the afternoon buying, but the figures were generally considered in line with average expectations, although there were no comparisons for the report, which was the first of the sort on record. The total llnters reported last year were f>56,2?6 bales from the 16,<X)0,000 bale crop and later returns this season may add considerably to the figures up to the first of the year. Private cables from Liverpool attributed the relative firmness there to American buying and small offerings. Home complaints are coming In from the southwest of delayed farm work as a result of wet weather, but many con sider that these are offset by the fact that, abundant winter rainfall Is supposed to be putting a good season Iti the ground. _New York Cotton Futures Open.

January 28.—Cotton fu tures opened steady at an advance of 3 to 7 points on higher cables than ex I ected and buying by leading bull oper- I ators. Soon after the call prices stood N to 9 points up. Hulls withdrew their support and the market commenced to f, li off under scattered short selling, some of which was prompted by the better wtather conditions over the cotton region and the promise of more dry weather in the forecast, in the early trading the volume of business was not large. At tlie rnet of the first half hour prices were 2 to 3 points over yesterday’s close. Around the middle of tire morning fire i arket did better on a wave of buying Operators were impressed by spot holder s bring unwilling to grant concessions to purchasers. There was no life to the mar ket. Hulls made little efforts to press their advantage. At a level of ll to 12 points up the advance stopped, scalping longs took their profits and prices fell j off again, standing at noon at a net rise of 8 to 9 points. In the afternoon the trade acquired a steady* tone on the report from Washing ton that the census bureau was out with c statement to the effect, that only 356,074 hales of linters had been turned out rip tu January 1. This was smaller than eg Commercial Accounts Accounts of business houses, corporations and in dividuals are cordially invited, and all courtesies and accommodations are extended which ara consistent with conservative banking policy.
