YEW TORK. November 21.— The marked
j n provcment shown by to-day's stock
market. was doubv.css due in a great mcas
eve to thft greater t^sc of time money.
There was no apparent reduction in the
♦ate. but the willingness of certain large
tr . r - (rs i oioi 0 srn<3 for long periods was accept
16 as proof that financial conditions hcrc
t't'OMX have once more benefited and been
V i=cc fi on a suostantial foundation. There
v'7<> Indications also that the <.ow of
money to interior points is at an end. Al
though another transfer was maco to Ran
Francisco, this- was- more than offset
by re turns 'from. Western and Southern
" - irA*. and the preliminary statements
of money movements shows a material
Irs? to the sub-treasury, with resultant
pains to local banks.
While much of. to-day's business was
rcaiiy in the naturo 01 short covering-,
there little doubt that the solid inter
,-.t-s were heavy buyers. For the first
.;„.,; {.his week, the movement in Manhat
tan was overshadowed by that of another
ttcck. namely St. Paul. That stock, which
vr&s dealt in to the extent of over 100.000
chares, advanced to ISO. and closed at that
figure, making a net gain of C 5-S points.
Ko plausible explanation for the rise
was advanced other than: that, an early
or.nc;;nccment of an extra stock issue may
be made.
OPENING IRREGULAR.
The opening was again irregular, with
Manhattan in the lead, though other trnc
ti,:r.s were lower. St. Paul made early
unprovement. and Louisville and Nash
ville was also strong. The reported deal
n Manhattan, which still lacks official
confirmation, but is generally believed,
joubilcFS exerted some influence on the
buying side, although Manhattan moved
rregularly throughout the day and scored
1 net loss of 1 1-2 points. The movement
c the railway shnrcs gathered greater
Jorce before the end of the first hour, St.
Paul, Rock Island. Missouri Pacific. Kan
sas City, Southern, Toledo. St. Louis &
Western, and some more obscure issues
1!! making substantial improvement.
In the industrial group. Sugar. Amalga
mated Copper, Tennessee Coal and Iron,
and United States Realty issues were
the principal features.
It was clear that the short? were run
ning to cover, especially in Copper. The
heaviness of Manhattan probably was due
In part to profit-taking by one or more
ALMOST BUOYANT.
The improvement shown during the
morning session was more than sustained
later, and with St. Paul still the leader,
«.he gent/ial list continued to move up
ward unii! at times the - movement was
almost buoyant. Buying of ''such stocks . 'is
Sti Paul. Louisville and Nashville, some
of ih» Pacifies, Baltimore and Ohio, Penn
sylvania; Reading and Copper, -was, re
ported to be of the -very best character,
"and board sentiment was more cheerful
than lor some days. The closing was
strong and active, with prices very ; gen
erally at the best.
S-.criing exchange experienced another
lharp advance to-day, owing to sales for
European account in this market. Bonds
participated in the rise, but only to a
slight extent, outside the "VVabash deben
tures. Total sales, par value, $2,270,000.

the heavy liquidation of last week.
The action of the market in view of
the" persistent exploitation of the argu
ment that prices cannot advance under
present money conditions all of which
excites suspicion, leads to the belief that
a "sneaking" bull campaign may be
under way. accompanied of course, by
the ultimate reactions.
These recessions therefore should be
taken advantage of to buy stocks.
Stocks are cheap, including practically
all standard railroad issues.
OUTSIDE SECURITIES.
Speculative, interest in the market for

Offerings were free at the advance, and

Liquidation of December was especially
heavy. causing a decline to 74 l-2c, but
renewed covering brought a rally to 751-2
cents.
Corn opened strong on higher cables
and .unfavorable weather, with a fair de
mand for both December and May. Lo

COTTON GOSSIP.
The cotton exchange was the scene, of
great activity yesterday, on the basis -of
} broadening speculation^- The market
(opened steady, with prices showing, a
decline of 2 points to an advance of 1

caused a weak feeling,, and a slight fur
ther loss in prices was soon current, the
early weakness being increased by what
was regarded as a . generally favorable
weather map; although the general ad

vate, left the trade much in doubt as to
the true inwardness of crop conditions.

The highest prices of the session to
day showed an advance of 30 to 3o points
since the market turned last Friday. in
the direction of recovery from the period
of liquidation that had culminated then
in a decline of about 1 cent. On this
reaction there was a disposition to se
cure profits by a considerable class ot
traders, who took advantage of the strong
week-end statistics to unload. This seil
inc produced a reaction that aoout ab
sorbed the earlier advance. But while
liquidation was very heavy, the public
demand was also heavy, and .the busi
ness of the day reached about 500,000
bales, this being the largest total of re
cent active times. The market- was final
ly steady at a net rise of "2- to a. net de
cline of ?. points. ~.
According to Superintendent King, the
amount- of cotton brought into sight for
the week is 465.367 bales, against 429.a94
last year. At one time, ■ estimates ran
as high as 47G.000 bales. At the same
time the excess in the interior stocks
and .consolidated stocks is less than had
been looked for.

WHOLESALE FISH MARKET.
The prospect is for light r.eceints ?m\
hifrh prices for the corning- week, mc
warm weather is holdinsr bncli fr^sh
war<=r fish: another cause for the scarcity
is. that the fiphf-rmen report the catch
small. Evans & Sharp, large fish dealers,
report the receipt of some fine
spots which are selling from S. to
10 cents, and trout from f. to 7 cents;
there were not many of either kind, how
ever. Sf.i , .
These fish dealers received the
first lot -.'of pomp.mo this season, and
the second shipment of sheephead. Both
of these fish were shipped from Florida.
■Oysters are reported scarce and the
demand small.' Shippers are holding back
the bivalves awaiting cold weather.
COUNTRY PRODUCE MARKET.
The market yesterday showed more ac
tivity than earlier in the week. Turkeys
were a little stronger, owing to the ap
proach of Thanksgiving 1 . Commission men
say that when shipping poultry for .the
holiday "market next week -care should be
taken to have it arrive before Tuesday
night. The quotations remain about the
same as yesterday.

THE TOBACCO MARKET.
.'ihe. sales In the tobacco warehouses
yesterday were the largest In many years.
Both "farmers and buyers state that they
recollect-nothing like it. The wagons were
arriving all during Thursday night, and In
the morning the blockade about Shockoe
Slip, ; Canal street. Twelfth and Thir
teenth, streets, and all thoroughfares con
necting* in the immediate vicinity was so
great that the warehouse people were
forced to 'phone to police headquarters to
assist in straightening out the tangle.
'Mr. Hazel, of the Shockoe warehouse,
said he knew that his warehouse had 150
wagons, and probably many more, and
there were conservative men who placed
the total number of wagons at between
iiOO and. 7oo.
Farmers coming in with teams from a
radius of fifty miles say that many of
the farms in all sections were denuded of
their 'male population, as more than a
thousand planters came in to the sale.
So great was the receipt of tobacco that
the sales in the warehouses started one
hour earlier than, usual and it was im
possible to finish last night. The auc
tioneers sold steadily until dark, and then
continued, the sale until to-day. , As.a rule
there is no sale on Saturday, but to-day
there will be hundreds.
CROWDED CONDITIONS.
Somejdea of the crowded conlition of
the warehouses may be obtained trom the
statement that on a single floor -there were
more --than ; -600 large piles of this- dark
weed.fl'Most of the wagons at noon were
jammed- together without horses in one
great. line on. either side of every ne'gh
boringrstreet, and few were allowed in the
warehouses. .Where the sales were going
on the j floor was black with planters and
buyerSvj-,The sight was strange and in
terestinr-to the casual visitor.. '
B. from Caroline, was there
with his "fiddle and played a lively tune
whenever they sold a pile of his tobacco.
He had every negro about the, place
grinning, -and even- the countrymen
danced a jig to his; tunes. This fiddler
had wide "f's" in his violin, where those
that admired his art dropped coins into
the instrument. Wash says he played on
the fiddle better with a few coins inside.
Truly.^he is a wonder, and can .play with
the fiddle upon his head or bowing: from
behind.^"
The warehouses reeked ..with damp to
baccofand good cheer. The supervisor of
sales- said the prices of tobacco held up
v.ery-'~w"ell and the farmers seemed well
pleased; 1
The sales, it is estimated, were from
400,000 pounds to a half-million.
MARTINSVILLE. VA.. Nov. 21.-(Spe
clal.)— Yesterday and to-day have been
record-breaking days for this season in
the quap.tity of tobacco, sold on this mar
ket. "^Yesterday l3o.ooo pounds .of loose leaf
werot°s the 'warenouse floors, and brought
.ji2.a»." ■ • '
Therg were practically no wrappers In,
the offerings, and most of it was" of rather*
common grades of fillers and lugs. To
day will be a close second to yesterday, as
at least 120.000 pounds are lon the ware
house floors; and as there has. so far. been
no shying off. in prices it will take all
day to"" complete tbe sales. • . .
Good fillers have sold this week as high
as $35.; < The week's record will be at least
half a. million pounds. No tobacco is sold
here- in'packages. It is all loose leaf.
