Stock Market Xew York, Jtarch 2-1.?The early promffo to-dny of an ln<-rt hollday market was not horne nut by thc Intcr tfcvelopmonts, when Incrcanlnfi. pres uurc ot stocks for salo carrled prices cbmprehcnslvely downwards. The ylcldlng of prlces was attrlbuted nnrt ly to the counter nioVement ot the professlonal cleincnt in thc specula? tlon. which bad dc.nohstrh.ted the npathetic demand, at any advance in Piiccs when they sou-hl to realize prortts. H Was asserted nt the atock .Lxclia.lgo tlmt a large part ot tne ."cillng of stocks was for lioston a.* count, and mlght bc In piirsuaiuc^ot a (.ncctiiativc campaign. The unrest niaii iic.-tcu bv lat'oi- ln many departments waa advanced as ono explanatlon tor thls ftlllng. The array of charges agalnst thc United States btcel L-ui poratlon prc-ciitcd to thc ^AUorncy General bv thc Amerlcan- fccdoration of Eabor was another lactor tn maklnc the day's sentlment. So. also. "-as tne result of the electlon in thc .1'ourt.eeiuh Massachusetts District ot a Congrcss. "xiie Boston selllng was accompanir-d bv protcsslons of apprehenslon that l evtslon of the tariff would be mado an active Issue ot thc coming pollt? lcal campaign. with thc tradttlonally unsettling clfcct on sccurltlcs murkots. Tho demand for stocks at any level of prices was exlremcly apathotlc, and -.vhen thc- selllng pressif* attaln<**l an\ force prlces ylelded rapldly. Thc results of the New York Clty bond sale dld not croate enthusiasm, as tliev iverc studlcd in thelr larger bear lng's. This feellng was cmphaslzed bv the rencwed decllno ln tlie prlce of Xcw York Clly bonds, the new 4 1-4 s rcccdlng to 10L. The average subscrip tlon prlce having aniour'ed to 10l._!5. tlie day's prlco thus reprcsentcl a loss to the subscrlbers. The geneiHl honrl market wa.s unfa Torably affected, and this operated against the success of the further flnanclng to be cifcctcd by the rall? roads. The enrly advance in Keadl*-* was accompanled by rumors that tho Baltlmore and Ohlo holdings of that Etock had been sold. Tho recent ac qulsitlon of Hocking v-*v-- by Chesa? peake and Ohio has served to increase the crcdencc glven to rumors of other deals. Bonds wore heavy: total- sales, par valuo, .4,317,000. United States bonds ?wero unchanged on call. Total sales of stocks for the day were 600,000 shares.
