In Wall Street. New York, Oct. 20.—An advance in sterl ing exchange to $4.88% and $4.89% started a fresh selling movement In stocks in the first hour of business. The strength of exchange of course revived the talk about exports of gold, but leading bankers were <5f the opin ion that shipments were not likely this hveek, at least. So far as next week is con cerned, however, they were not so confident. The greatest pressure during the early part of the day was directed against he indus trials and Reading. The last named fell from 17% to 15%, rallied to 16% and dropped to and closed at 14%. Rumors were current that the assessment on the stock under the proposed plan of reorganization will cer tainly be $20. and may reach $30, while the Income bondholders will probably have to pay $10. for which they may receive a little new preferred stock in exchange. The stock ■was unusually active and figured for 70,000 pharos in a grand total of 276,061 shares. In the industrials Tobacco was particularly weak and'dropped 3%, to 70, on reports that the fight with the plug tobacco people was costing the company dearly. Sugar was steady for a time, but in the last hour, on sales by brokers supposed to be in the em ploy of lower Wall street interests, the stock broke 134, o 101%. General Electric sold down from 34% to to 32% and Chicago Gas from 68% o 66%. The decline in the Tast named was attributed to sales by holders whose margins had been weakened by losses In other parts of the list. The railway list foil off ’.» to 1*4 per cent In sympathy, but In the afternoon the losses wore partially recovered on the favorable September state ment of the Chicago. Burlington and Quin cy; Chesapeake and Ohio; Memphis and St. I^ouis and Canadian Pacific. Pacific Mail Shot up from 30% to 31% on the old story of a settlement with the Panama, but later returned to 30%. In the last hour the bears resinned aggressive tactics and the im provement noted was not only lost, but a number of leading issues touched he lowest point of the day. The particularly weak stocks at this time were Reading, Sugar, Jersey Central, Atchison, Canadian -South* cm, the grangers and General Electric. The Erie Telephone and Telegraph made a sensational drop of 17 points, to 50, rallied to G2 hid and closed at 58 bid. The sales were only 1200 shares and the break was consid ered o be simply an old time coup. The general market closed weak and % to % per cent lower on the day. National Starch pre ferred rose %. to 49%. Ronds were weak. Sales footed up $l,32u, 00". Sales of listed stocks aggregated 215,711 shares and unlisted 61,153 shares.

Chicago, Oct. 2*,).—After the usual recogni tion of the drouth scare by opening linn and slightly higher this morning, wheal fell under the spell of the heavy northwest re ceipts, lower London cables and poor bus iness',aml ruled weak and lower up to the close, which was the low point for the day. The opening was the highest, he notably weak period of the session being a little after noon and was apparently due to sell ing by New York and local longs, the former for short account and the latter because they had grown weary of waiting for a bull movement. December wheat wheat opened from 60ft to 60%c, dropped to 59%c, where It closed, %e under yesterday. Cash wheat was w-eak and per bushel lower. It was quiet in tin* corn pit and prices, al though experiencing weakness through tlie relationship of this grain and wheat, did rjiot materially decline. The range scarcely exceeded ftc limit, the business finding am ple. scope therein. May corn opened at 29ftc, sold at declined to 2!*ftct where it closed, ftc under yesterday. Cash corn was steady. Oats were Influenced entirely by he feel ing in wheat. Price changes were not im portant and were confined to narrow boun daries. May oats closed fto under yester day. Cash oats were firm for all grades, with white quotably ftc higher. Provisions—-Traders encountered further discouragement this morning In the state of affairs at the yards. Early the report was weak and lower. Later another dispatch was received quoting a decline of 10$fl5c. Products gave away to the depression com municated, prices ruling at declines all day. At the close January pork was 10<&J2ftc low er than yesterday, January lard 2ft(b'5c low er, January libs 2ftc lower. The leading futures ranged as follows: Articlea Wheat Oct. Dec. May. Corn— Oct.

New York, Oct. 29.—The Sun’s cotton re view says: Cotton rose 20 to 21 points, then reacted and closed 12 to 13 points above the last prices of yesterday, with the final tone steady and sales of 302,000 bales. Liverpool advanced 6 to 6Vfe points and closed firm, with 8pot sales of 10,000 bales, and spot prices 3-32d higher. New Orleans advanced 18 points and then lost 7 points of the rise. The port receipts were 42,032 bales, against 50.860 bales this day last week, 73,726 last year and 88.472 bales in 1893: tl>us far this week 119,754 bale#, against 165,000 thus far last week. New Orleans expects tomorrow' 12,000: to 13,090 biles. In Manchester yarns were higher, but less active; cloths were dull. Spot cotton’ advanced 3-16c at New York and Norfolk. *4c at Charleston, at Wilmington and'Havahnah and l-16e at Mo bile. Memphis soLd 3150 bales. Today's features—Increased strength in Manchester on which the bulls dilated with much satisfaction; a rise in Liverpool, with godd buying orders from that market; large purchases, by New Orleans; a rumor that Neill Bros, .will estimate the cotton crop at 0.250.0(H)'bales,-nod a disinclination on the part of the south to sell at current prices caused a strong‘fooling in the market here today, which led to a decided advance. Lo- ! cal operators covered freely. Wall street | bought and southern orders; to buy were plentiful. Weak holders haVe been weeded out knd the cotton Ls in the hands of strong holders. The general feeling ls bullish, j The crop movement is comparatively mod erate^ and planters and dealers at the south , show a disposition to hold cotton for higher prices. Parfc*of the decided rise early in the j day was lost before the close, owing In u | measure to selling by exporting houses, wht) are believed to have Increased their ; purchases of spot cotton at the south and aro following the usual custom of hedging against such purchases by selling futures in New York. Besides. leading firms sold at the.advance to realize profits, among them, it is understood, being Inman. Swan ; & Co.and Wall -street houses, as well as the south. The speculation is once more ex panding. General Cotton Markets. Cities. 3 H 07 •O 3 .1 <* GstVesroh... Norfolk. Baltimore. Boston. Wilmington Philadelphia. Snvunnah— New Orleans Mobile.

New York, Oct. 29.—The Journal of Com merce and Commercial Bulletin, In its week ly review of the dry goods market, says: The strength of the dry goods market for cotton goods, in the face or the recent heavy drop in the price of cotton, was a surprise to anumber of buyers, who tested the mar ket by bids for qualities for future delivery of staples at priced baaed upon the expecta tion of that Influence only to have th^m turned down. It ha# therefore been no sur prise to find that the general tone today is practically as firm as it ever was, seeing that cotton has covered something like oue-half of the previous decline from the highest point.
