THE INVESTOR
OFFICE OF THE HERALD.
LOS ANGELES, January 12, 1898.
"The shortest way to do many things Is
to attempt only one thing at a time."
♦ ♦ ♦
Tho real estate record of 1897
tor the city and county of San
Francisco shows that 3215 sales
were recorded during tho year, ag
gregating $12,303,025. Tho showing made
by Los Angeles county tor the same period
Is 13,559 sales, aggregating $10,801,462. The
remarkable part of this comparison Is not
that tho total amounts of the sales are
■o greatly In favor of Los Angeles, when
the disparity ln population Is taken Into
consideration, but the activity ln tho local
market Is apparent from the fact that
13,559 transactions took place here, each
one Involving a search of title, the draw
ing of a deed, a notarial acknowledg
ment and recording fees. To offset this
there wer» only 3215 transactions in San
Francisco in the samo lime.

What Was Done Yesterday on Wall
Street
NEW YORK, Jan. 12.—Today's market
for securities was much of the same char
acter as yesterdays's. The principal inter
est was centered In Union Pacific nnd a
number of its affiliated companies and in
Northern Pacific, which were the lead
ing factors of strength, while on the
other hand Sugar continued under a
weight of depression, as was the case
yesterday. A new feature of special
strength was Chesapeake and Ohio, which
advanced a point on heavy buying. Tran
sactions were on a very large scale, and
the heavy dealings of large operators,
backed by the powerful interests, were
manifest all through the market. These
large operations attracted a considerable
following, both among the smaller traders
and from outside sources. Commission
house business was, In fact, quite noticea
ble in the day's trading. It was obvious,
however, that realizing on a large scale
was going on in different parts of the list,
coincldentally with the strength in other
parts. A striking example of this pro
cess was seen in the two Northern Pa
cine stocks, the common being advanced
over a point, while realizing in the special
carried It before the close below last night's
last sale. The grangers, outside of St.
Paul, will also be seen to reflect a supply
of stock fully equal to the demand. Union
Pacific rose at one time over two points,
but recent buyers commenced to profit
as soon as a report was published that
the new company had secured control of
the Oregon Short Line. The stock reacted
over a point. The recent strength of the
stocks of the disintegrated portions of the
old Union Pacific system Is fully explained
by today's announcement. This buying
was evidently founded on a belief in far
reaching plans of combination and exten
sion, which, according to some prevalent
rumors, will embrace one vast system from
the Atlantic to the Pacific. Advices from
the London and continental markets
showed the tone of American! securities in
the foreign financial markets to be ex
cellent. London bought In this market no
less than 20,000 shares of the favorite in
ternational stocks. and the marked
strength of Union Pacific. Denver and Rio
Grande preferred and Northern Pacific
were directly attributable to this demand.
The weakness In Sugar seemed to be con
nected with the annual meeting of the di
rectors, ln progress today, though no news
regarding the company reached the house.
Money declined to yield today below 2%
per cent, but the tone of the market re
flected the prevalent feeling that rates
will yield in the near future. Large
amounts of money also found their way
Into Investment and speculation today. The
available possibility of relief to the money
market was indicated by the fall of %c.
In posted rates, the decline not being pre
vented by the expected arrival tomorrow
at San Francisco of another $1,000,000 in
gold from Australia. The par value of to
day's transactions in bonds is not as large
as that of yesterday, but business was
remarkably well distributed all through
the list. Gains were the rule, but there
were some declines. Total sales, $775,003.
U. S. old 4's coupon and the 2's were %c.
higher bid today. There were sales of the
new 4's coupon at 129%, which Is the highest
on record.

NEW YORK, Jan. 12.—The F.i-ening
Post's London financial cablegram says:
There was less activity In Grand Trunks
and Canadian Pacifies In the stock mar
ket here today, and Increased animation
and strength in Americans and Argentines,
particularly Argentine rails. Mines were
neglected. Americans are still mainly sup
ported by New York and the continent.
There were increased dealings here, but
entirely by professional speculators. Den
ver and Rio Grande preferred has risen
sharply on professional ciique buying.
Union raciftc were strong on buying from
New York and the continent. Prices gen
erally closed strong. It is reported, but
I cannot in any way confirm it, that the
purchaser of Manitoba and Western bonds
Is the Northern Pacific company.
Gold Is in demand lor Germany. It is
nominally quoted at 775. 10% d., but It Is
really much higher.
You may entirely discredit thp rumors
of Anglo-German China loans. The nego
tiations, whether completed or not, are

CHICAGO MARKETS
yesterday's Transactions on the Board
of Trade
CHICAGO, Jan. 12.—At the opening op
tion prices for wehat showed a slight de
cline. May starting at 90%'g90%c, as com
pared with yesterday's close cf 91c, This
was because Liverpool showed a very
small advance ln response to the gain here
yesterday, and Paris opened lower. The
northwest receipts were again too heavy
to be a comfort to the bulls, ami smallrr
receipts here was the only circumstance
that they could claim in their favor. Trad
ing was restricted by the general bearish
ness of the speculative crowd, which pre
vented them from buying, and their timid
ity at the same time of being caught short
under the well known threatening local
conditions that now exist. For a short
time after the opening the market did
show some strength. Brokers for the
Leiter interests were fair buyers at 90%,
and their example in this respect was fol
lowed by some of the small fry, and the
price as a result advanced to 91%e. Ru
mors that the French duty on grain was
about to be reluced were persiistently cir
culated at the opening and helped the ad
vance.
Denials soon became so unanimous, how
ever, that the crowd dropped the tariff re
duction as a motive for the decline at
Paris, and the market here eased oft from
that time.
The receipts at western primary markets
were 420,00 bushels, against 230.0 M bushels
the corresponding day of the year before.
Liverpool's advance was only %d. per cen
tal and Paris opened from 5 centimes to
15 centimes lower. Beerbohm cabled that
Argentine wheat sold at 335. 6d., or the
equivalent of $1, and that cargoes of that
wheat were beinf freely offered to arrive.
On the other hand, the Minneapolis dis
patches reiterated their constant theme
of coming scarcity In that region.
The export clearances of wheat and flour
from Atlantic ports amounted to 446,000
bushels. Closing cables brought lower
quotations from continental markets.whlle
Liverpool closed about %d. lower for next
crop futures, September showing %d. ad
vance. Paris quoted flour for this month's
delivery 45 centimes lower and for March-
May 16 centimes higher, and wheat 5 cen
times lower for both Immediate and re
mote deliveries. Antwerp was 26 centimes
lower for American red and 13% centimes
lower for Walla Walla.
The price of May fluctuated between 90%
and 91 for the greater part of the session,
and at 1 oclock was selling at 90%. In the
last fifteen minutes of the session support
had entirely disappeared, and operators
who had become "long" on the early
French rumors had considerable difficulty
ln unloading. May declined rapidly in con
sequence, and was quoted at 90%&90% at
the close.
Corn was very quiet. The market was
easy at the opening, with wheat. It
turned firm on the prospects of a cold
wave, but turned easy again as wheat de
clined, and showed weakness for the rest
of the session.
The market for oats was slow. Some
firmness was shown at the opening, but
later prices fell off with wheat and corn.
Provisions were strong throughout.
Much lighter receipts of hogs than ex
pected started the market at small ad
vance all around.

Boston Wool Market
BOSTON, Jan. 12.—The American Wool
and Cotton Reporter will say tomorrow:
The sales this week have fallen oft nearly
67 per cent from the previous week. Not
withstanding this fact, the market Is
possessed of more interesting features
now than then.
Though much less active, it Is a broader
market. Where a short time since a half
dozen gigantic mills were absorbing all at
tention by reason of their eagerness to
pick up round amounts of staple territory,
there Is now a widespread inquiry from
mills of every class for wool of a great
many different grades, and better Inquiry
is highly indicative of an active market
In a very short time.
Territory wools, especially those having
staple In them, have been inquired for, as
have certain lines of fleece, pulled wools
and greasy capes.
Prices are fully as firm as a week afro,
and In some cases are more so, notably In
Delaine wools
A large business Is anticipated by every
body within a few weeks, and there Is
consequently every Inducement to keep
quotations at a high figure. The sales of
the week amount to 2.236,000 pounds domes
tic and 1,072.000 pounds foreign, as against
a total of 7,670,000 for the previous week.
