1 Holdinp Cp Pricca.
NEW YORK. October -:s.— (Special.)—
The Wall-Street-, Journal to-night says:
The bull interest in Louisville and Nash
ville innistp that a dividend is to be made
ot the rate of 6 per cent., and that this
fact will keep the stock fully up to the
present level: The authority for. this be
lief is not given. but; ; the. operations of
people, who 'Insist that .Louisville; and
Nashville' is to be'a' ~$ per cent.: stocks
have created a following and .sentiment.
"The change in purpose of those who
control -Louisville is possible, but .we
feel justified in • saying that this pur
pose now is to keep Louisville on 5 per
cent, basis for certainly, one year and
perhaps, two years. Surplus earnings
during that time are wanted in . the pro
perty, and while the argument that the
price'paid for control justifies 6 per cent,
dividend, the controlling interests have a
bread policy and are willing to see a small
return en the investment at the outset
on the belief that it will be increased
hereafter." ■'(■
The Atlantic-Coast Line people wish to
have' It understood that the dividend is
to remain at 5 per cent., and that there
should be no misunderstanding on this
point. Official announcement of the pur
chase of company will be made after the
Coast Line stockholders' meeting in Rich

THE GAS-WORKS WILL
NEED MUCH MORE HELP.
High Price of Coil Will Force Xity
Council to Come to Relief of the
.;■ Department.
Owing to strike conditions the City
Council will be called "upon at the next
meeting to provide more . money for the
gas works. At the last meeting of the
Light Committee an additional sum of
money, amounting to S3.GCO was asked for
the coal and oil account and pay rolls.
Now it has been ascertained . that this
amount will be inadequate, and. further
relief must be. given the department.
- It Is estimated that the coal strike .has
cost the city, in the gas works alone, at
least. $12,0)0,or UZxm.. an 3. there <s ...little,
relief , in sight now. Of course tne fuel
is easier to secure at present. tnan it was
several : weeks ago. but foe price remains
greatly in excess of the figures that. pre :
•vailed "when the budget was made up
