NEW YORK. November 39.— Interest in
market centered almost entirely
in the local tractions, -which were very
strong nrd active. Operations In that
irroup aggregnted about one-quarter of
tho day's business. Manhattan, as on
the prevloas days. of the week, was the
real foatyi-e, rosjclns: a maximum advance
of over 9 points,- and a net gain of 6 7-S.
MetropolftAn and BrooW>-n Transit, which
were taken up .later -in: the day, scored
net pains of S 7-S and 4 3-4 points/ re
spectively. The; "street" Is convinced
•that some sort of deal Is on in Manhattan,
and there are those -who believe that the
deal includes practically all the street
railways of Greater New York. Man
hattan, according -to; rumors current dur
ing the day, may go to Metropolitan In
this.- gr bo taken over by tho s>-ndicate
•which -controls the.subway sj'stem now Jn
course of construction. -,
Rumors regarding Brooklyn Transit had
10 do writh Pennsylvania railway ,inter
ests- The Pennsylvania road, as is gener
nlly kno^ru controls the Long- Island rail
■way.' and bas other Interests in King's
nnd Queens ■ counties. Nevertheless, the
rumor coupling Pennsylvania with Brook
s\-n Transit was generally scouted. Opcn
«ng prices reflected further pressure in all
the active stocks, except Manhattan. Col
orado-Fuel declined 3 points, and. th era
were average' losses of a point or more
;n J3altim ore and Ohio. St. Paul, Union
Pacific and Amalgamated Copper, while
Reading. United States Steel and Sugar
also sold lower. Manhattan, meantime,
continued to advance on buying orders at
tributed to Gould brokers, and In the
first thirty minutes. advanced to 350, from
which it fell 3 points, but as is shown
jn ore than recovered this loss.
PRICES GRADUALUY. IMPROVE.
Prices gradually improved " in many of
the standard issues. The traders who had
been out of the market for some days took
the long side of the market, and the short
interest covered extensively, especially In
Manhattan and Sugar. Trading in Man
hattan during ,the early session was so
that the stock gained a point between
quotations. .. It ;-was reported that a^.yery
prominent 'opemt or was enerlnecring^ the
indv'emant. '■ Recoveries at this time else
*vbere in the' list were feverish 'and er
ratic, as "was- shown in the course of such
etocks as Metropolitan, Louisville and
Nashville. St. TPaul, Rock Island, Missouri
Pacific, and Canadian Pacific. Sugar con
tinued steady on T reports of better trade
conditions. .Colorado Fuel fluctuations
•were wild, making at one time an abrupt
rise of 4 points, though closing 2 points
below yesterday's price. General Electric
•went off 2 points on small sales, and the
market at -this, particular period seemed
•to be meeting more stock than It could
absorJi. The early hours brought the real
upward turn in the Tractions, and in the
general rally an improved tone was shown
by St. Paul, Reading, Norfolk and West
orn, Southern Pacific/ Union Pacific. Bal
timore and Ohio, Wabash preferred. At
chison, and some others in the same class.
The closing was strong and active.
NOTHING ABOUT GOLD EXPORTS.
For the' first time in some days nothing
•was said respecting gold exports. The
Bcarcity of nooney has forced borrowers
to appeal to foreign bankers for accom
modations and', more loan bills were offer
ed to-<3ay.
Railway bonds were heavy in the early
•flcalings, but improved, later, ' with -.the
rise In stocks. Total 6ales. par value, $3.
»0,000. United States bonds were all un
rhanged on the last call.

weather in the cotton belt, some buying
on the belief that there has been too
much low temperature and too much wet
weather for an unfolding, of the top crop.
The English cables came 1-2 to 1 point
better than expected, and were' attended

Ing abroad,, in anticipation of an unfa
vorable bureau report from Washington

The cotton- market opened steady, at an

active and generally, firmer, ..on better
early, cables' than looked for, and doubt
ful weather news. Prices further ad
vane'ed 1 to 2 points on the more, active
positions, but turned easier, under, selling
bvroom traders to. secure profits, which
carried prioes : [email protected] points off from the
best point of the forenoon, after which
there was a genvral rally, with the mar
ket finally very steady; at a net, loss of
1 point. Trading was ."'very narrow and
dull most of the .session, until the last
hours, when it-became active under per
sistent buying. -White January contracts
received less attention than heretofore,
it was rumored that the "January deal"
was still on. to be heard from later. This
became a factor In the afternoon rally.
'While local" sentiment remains quitte
mixed, a good many' room traders have
become bullish, on reports from the-
South that very little spot cotton is for
sale.' as compared with the quantity
wanted, while thw weather in many
parts of the South has not been of a
duality to forward the top-crop chances..
Private cables brought "Brood-sized buy
ing orders from Great Britain and .the
Continent. Spot houses continue to ab
sorb December and January contracts.

has been a steady buyer of the near

NEW YORK. Tuesday Evening, No
vember IS. — The inability- of the domestic
blast furnaces to catch-up with the con
tracts 1 owing to the; lack of adequate fuel
supplies -and consequently the absence
of supplies of the.ftonie product avail
able for. prompt delivery, keeps prices on
a - firm -basis here; while in England,
largely because .of. the" decided curtail
ment of American demand, the tendency
of the market is downward. The latest
cable quotation on tMicldlesboro' foundry
iron is Is. 3d.'- lower than- that quoted on
November list. 5 . A mail report ! dated the
Sth Instant says: -Business (in" iron and
steel)' is bad in "nearly all dt-partmtnts
of trade, and: signs 'of relief are entirely
wanting. Continental .competition; con
tinues . as", aggressive " as ever and bars
and, billets are being, offered freely. 'at
prices far. below": those* quoted.by; British
markers. It is understood that some
good rail orders- have".; been placed, on
American account during the: week, but.
as usual, prices are withheld.-- There are
a .number of iron 7 and steel inquiries
Btill.on the' market ;for;the r United States,
but' the demand appears '■'.'to *be slacken
ing. A' steamer" left MJddfesboro' with
2,000 tons ~ No. j 3 : Cleveland iron for Phila
delphia .and "another -vessel Is. ' loading
4.000 tons: for the : United "States, and It
is understood that ; purchases 'of hema
tite have been 1 made for; the same desti
nations At : the same \tlme. reports ema
nating- from : Glasgow , with regard, to
the" magnitude - of-- the Americans demand
should be -received with; ivserve."

■VVHOL,ESAT.K PRODUCE MARKET.
The market was dull yesterday,
owing largely to the weather, and com
mission men. consequently, had a number
of auction sales in order to. clean up their
stock and get it out of the way before it
spoiled. The quotations on game remain
about the same, but little fresh stuff is
coming in. Country shippers in the cola
mountain regions do not realize the
weather conditions here and do not take
enough care in preparing game for ship
ment. As a result." the game is partially
spoiled and is sold at almost any price.
One • dealer sold yesterday one lot of
forty rabbits for < cents, each, and
squirrel were sold as low as 2 cents.
