THE MARKETS,
In Wall Street.
New York, Oct. 16.—The stock market
fettll retains its professional character, in
the opening dealings the tendency of prices
iwas upward, encouraging advices from
London regarding the fortnightly settlement
having induced moderate purchases or tne
leading railway Issues. The foreigners at
(this time were in our market as buyers, one
arbitrage house placing the purchases tor
this account at about 6000 shares, of which
St. Paul figured for nearly two-thirds or tne
amount. The upward tendency, however,
was checked soon after the opening by an
advance in the posted rates of sterling ex
change of *&c, to $4.88(84.SO. On Monday
they were $4.87(84.8$. This, of course, led to
talk of resumption of gold exports, cor a
time the rumors had no Influence, but later,
when evidence was forthcoming that one
or more of the coffee importing firms be
came more active in the sterling exchange
market, more attention was paid to this
feature of the situation by the professional
element. They sold the industrials, tli*»
grangers, Louisville and Nashville and
other leading stocks, and this started mod
erate liquidations for the long account.
Prices receded anywhere from % to 1% per
cent. Sugar fell 1% to 107%. Tobacco 1# to
9L>%, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy 1V» to
86*4, St. Paul Vh to 76%. Hock Island 1 to» 78,
General Electric % to 87%. Tennessee Coal
in, to 42Vg, and Leather preferred Pj8
Chicago Gas sold down % to 63%, jtnd later
rose to 69%. The-governing committee or
the stock exchange this afternoon listed
Central Trust company receipts from the
Fidelity Trust company certificates. The
recovery in Chicago Gas in the closing deal
ings stedied the general market and a frac
tional recovery was noted. Net changes
show declines of ** to 1% per cent, the lat
ter in American Sugar. In the inactive is
sues Consolidated Gas rose 1 to 146%, Cleve
land, Lorraine and Wheeling preferred 1%
to 63%, and Morris and Essex 4 to 170.

Chicago 'Change.
Chicago. Oct. 16.—Some lingering signs of
yesterday's strength in wheat were still ap
parent when the market opened today, but
the bulls were without any fresh news or
arguments with which to convince them
selves or others that prices should go high
er. Liverpool cables came with a decline of
%d. thereby ignoring yesterday’s strength
on this side. About the middle of the ses
sion an absence of support to prices was
noted and a general easing took place until
the announcement by Bradstreot’s of an
Increase in tlie world’s available supply of
7.8S6.000 bushels. Then came a break of %c,
after which business became slack and
“puts” checked any further decline. De
cember wheat opened from 61 to 60%c, sold
between 61% and 60V4c, closing at 60%@60%c.
Cash wheat was irregular, but the nominal
close was weaker and about %@1 c lower.
Corn—Partly in sympathy with wheat and
partly on light receipts corn was quite Jinn
this morning and managed to hold its own
until the slump succeeding Bradstreet’s an
nouncement took place in wheat, when less
strength was noted. But even at the close,
when wheat was weak, there was an air of
steadiness to corn. May e.om opened at 29Vfec,
sold between 29% and 29%@’29%c, closing at
29**»e. unchanged from yesterday. Cash corn
was steady to firm. *
Oats—Whilst the firmness of wheat and
corn was in evidence, oats held well, but
with the disappearance of strength from the
leading grains the minor one was unable to
sustain itself. Cash oats were about %c
higher, closing easy. May oats closed a
shade under yesterday.
Provision®—'The news from the yards was
discouraging this morning and It cast a
shadow over products, which hung there all
through the session. A large run of hogs
were announced. They wore poor in quality
and prices were off from 5 to 10c per hundred
pounds. Only a light trade was seen in pro
visions. and after a lower opening prices
varied but little. At the close January pork
was 7Vic lower. January lard &',£c lower and
January ribs 2Vic lower.
The leading lutures ranged as follows:

Today’s features; Realizing sales, duo to
a rumor that Neill Bros, will estimate the
t crop at not less than 6,600,000 bales, but at
6,800,000 bales maximum, and reports that
Inman, Swann & Co. were selling heavily
caused some decline, though at one time
the market exhibited considerable strength,
and in fact at the close it was steady after
a moderate recession.

The Guardian’s Article.
Manchester, Oct. 16.—The Guardian, in its
commercial article, says: The firmness in
Manchester during the week has not been
uniform, despite the hardening of the price
of cotton, which, however, lias stimulated
nervous buyers to place a few orders. The
tone of the market has been inactive with
a tendency on the part of the buyers and
sellers to get further apart. Advances have
secured for a few small lines of special
goods and staples for India, from which
country complaints of stagnation in selling
have come, owing to the higheivprices re
quired, dealers resolutely declining to pay
the rates demanded fearing a collapse. A
meaner business has been done In sheet
ings and shirtings for China. Yarns have
been irregular and are quoted at higher
figures.
