Wi NEW TOniv, Jan. 2.— The trading on
B the stock exchange fiLartcd off with great
%m animation this; morning. an<3 something
|^ like a bulge in. prices. Buyers'of-Tues
® Say and .."Wednesday took advantage of
k Vho rise to secure i.h'cir profits. Prices
® ;a;i off under this process, and the
Is market became dull. Tho advance was
||1 renewed again at fomo points, but the
S: map scemvd to be taken out of the
S market, and a fairly general selling
@ snovero&nt developed in tho afternoon,
it when ca.ll money rates etiffencd to 13
g. per cent. P.cadin? was vigorouely ad-
vanccd to above 63. anij served to' steady.
but. the selling was renewed be-
fore the close, which was highly irregu-
Wi lar. Sugar ran oflT a point below Wcdn'es

fThe opening call-loan rate of 10 ptr

» "week. Preliminary figures of the week's
W currency movement, which runs up to
j|.. Wednesday, night, indicate that the banks
jf havi gained upwards of ?3.200.000 on the
if regular movement with the Interior, while
i ' ho Sub-treasury has taken- from the
I'- banks Zl,i2S.(rJo; this indicating a net gain
;■■ of about $l.£o;>.oto for tlie banks.. The

I " DOUBTS OF LAST MONTH AGAIN.
H The action of the Jay's market gave
% rise to conjecture as to whether tire ad-.
g vance in prices simply halts upon tho.
«xpect.ed easing of the money rate, or
H whether the doubts of last month over
ft Ilro S^neral situation have recurred. To

bulls, the price advanced some, and. held
up well. Local receipts were 305- cars;
with four contract grade.
