THE GENERAL LIST IS HELPED
fThc Effect Was, However, Little
More Than to Overcome the
Heavy Dragging Tone.
(By Associated Press.) .
NEW YORK, Doc. ?8.-??10 Inorila of
to-day's sl.ocK market was ?lightly ovor
como in Hio last hour of thc trading in
luimp.ithy with tho slronir upward move?
ment in United Bin tea Stool preferrod,
lollowlnR tho formal iinnoimcoment that
tno stool billet pool hud clolermlned upon
a maintciiiince of present prices, which
fa-id nn limnodlatcly cheering effect on nil
connected with lion and steel tradii?.
Kteol preferred was taken In enormous
'.blocks nt ?in advance of 2 1-8 over lust
night. Tho effect upon tho general mar?
ket, however was scarcely moro than to
overcome tho heavy and d)-ciBi,'lnrr tone
which hud hold prices hack nil day. Penili
sylvaniri showed the mont marked sym?
pathy with tlio riso in Steel pre-ferrod k nil

hitler stock completely overshadowed tho
Whole market In point of volume.
Amalgamated Copper continued active,
Out was i-.liifr?l?h, and 'he London market
lor raw copper reacted,
Thoro wits a conspicuous Rifling move?
ment In Rock Island. That stock tell over
a point; St. Louis and Sim Francisco sec?

of a coming bond Issue; word the cause of
tho weakness. The usimi forecasts of the

op the regular express movement of be?
tween three und four million clollnrs, while
?uo-tieisur?,? operations. Including pay?
ments for 'foreign gold, have yielded to
Hie banks W.Oll U?. This did not allow
lor yesterday's receipts of foreign gold,
which amounted, to nearly J2.50?U0O. Call
' money was correspondingly easy." '????
With these condftlons existing'on: tho
v?rgo of iho lust week of the year It Is
not surprising Unit sterling exchange
should continuo to riso strongly away
Irom the gold lmi/t point. Cotton bilis
havo grown compii..?lively scarco also in

out slgn.ilcanco that tho week's exports
Of gram havo fallen nearly 1,250WXi bu
rhels below thoto o? last week, most of
tho deei-ease showing in wheat, while tho
valu? of imported dry goods rises more
