New York, Nov. 13.—The railway and mis cellaneous share speculation was irregular today. At the opening there was a period of hesitancy, due to lower cables from London and rumors of gold exports, but the impres sion made on prices on this account was slight. An the day advanced, however, the market improved on reports that there would be no gold exports on Saturday after all. The whole list moved up anywhere from % to 4 per cent. Later advices from abroad were of a cheerful nature, and this stimulated the bullish feeling here. Lon don was more disposed to buy our securities and a few orders were executed in Atchi son, St. Paul and Louisville and Nashville. The gain In prices was more pronounced in the anthracite coalers, Sugar, the grangers, Southern railway preferred and the south westerns. Lackawanna rose 4 per cent, to Kill; Jersey Central 1%, to 103; Delaware and Hudson %; Reading %, to 13%; St. Paul %, to 7614; Rock Island 1% to 76%; Chicago. Bur lington and Quincy 1%, to 86%; Northwest %, to 106%; Southern Railway preferred 1%, to 37% bid; Louisville and Nashville 1%, to 65%; Atchison %. to 18%: Sugar 2%, to 102%; Tennessee Coal 1%, to 86%; Missouri Pacific to 32%; Tobacco 2%, to 91%. and General Electric I, to 23%. Chicago Gas was erratic. It roso to 66%, broke to 64% and milled to 01%. Realizations and unfavorable fumors kept the stock feverish all day. In he afternoon Manhattan broke 4% per cent, to 102Vi, but later recovered to 103%. Nearly 16,000 shares of the stock changed hands. The weakness was due to the unfavorable report of the company for the year ended September 30 last, presented to the stock holders at today’s meeting. The statement •hows a dellclt after paying all charges and dividends pf $391,788, against a surplus of $210,180 last vear. The Increase In fixed oharges of $202,481 Is said to be partly due to the fact that during a portion of the ear Interest has not been paid only on the . per cent bonds, but on the large block of 4 per cents sold to retire these bonds. It was supposed that the Interest on the 4’s would not begin until January 1 next, when the 7’s are to be retired. The road was oper ated for 62.93 per cent, against 60.1 per cent in 1894. The number of passengers carried during the year was 118,072,645, a decrease of 8,068,678. The break in Manhattan hurt the general market, and a reaction of ti@lV6 per cent followed. Pacific Mail was weak throughout and lost nearly 2 points, selling down to 29>4. Little confidence is placed In the reports of resumption of negotiations with the Panama. Speculation left off weak, with the active stocks % to ‘,4 per cent below yesterday's finals. Manhattan lost 3% and Pacific Mall 1% per cent. Louisville and Nashville and Chicago, Burlington and Quincy gained Jersey Central %, Sugar Tobacco l'i and Lackawanna 4 per cent. Sales were 325,651 shares, Including 47,200 Sugar, 61,900 Tobacco, 28,000 Chicago Gas, 20,61X1 Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, 26,200 St. Paul and 15,700 Manhattan.

Chicago, Nov. 13.—From the northwest came the bull help in wheat today. All tho morning the trade was flat and prices af forded unprofitable opportunities, but along towards noon Minneapolis fired off an unus ually good milling demand, with good, but moderate supply. The news appeared to Im press the shorts very forcibly, quite a sharp demand coming from that source and values rising uboiit Vfcc before the buying gave Indi cations of being satisfied. The seaboard af terwards furnished the information that twenty-five loads had been sold for export, which went far in sustaining the market towards the end. Yesterday's recovery in prices tempted scalpers to continue working on tho bull aide, for which they received their rewards. December wheat opened from 67% to 574i367kc, advanced to B8©08%o, clos ing at 67%c, advance. Cash wheat was firm and 4£c per bU9hel higher. The light receipts of corn today and the strength radiating from wheat were of un niablc assistance to corn. The reiterated receipts at the present ttme leads to a cer tain amount of bull talk, but the crowd is wary of the new crop, which will soon head this way. May corn opened at £9%<3;-29kc, advanced to closing at 29%lS'29%c, %e higher than yesterday. Cash corn was ^4c higher. Oats remained In a state of tranquil in difference. With the advance in wheat there was a fractional rise, but It was rather an acknowledgement of the propriety of the strength of the former grain than as the re sult ot brisk buying. May oats closed high er than yesterday. Casn oats were firm and VitPAc per bushel higher. Provisions—After the noon hour trade in products brightened up a little, and with a good demand inspired stronger speculative feeling in grain. There was a fair advance The morning hours were noted for nothin*? but dullness, a steady feeling pervading prices, a firmer hog market tend ing to aid them. At the close January pork whs 10c higher, January lard and January ribs each 2%^5c lower. The leading futures ranged as follows: Lowest Closing.

Birmingham Loan -AND Trust Company, Birmingham, Ala., —-DEALERS IN Stocks and Bonds. Sun's Cotton Review. New York. Nov. 13.—-The Sun’s cotton re view says: -Cotton rose 3 to 8 points, lost the improvement then dropped X to 2 points, after which it rallied slightly and closed steady at a net decline of 9 to 10 points, with sales of 886.700 bales. Liverpool ad vanced l-16d on tho spot, with sales of 15, 000 bales: futures advanced 4 to GVa points, but reacted later and closed barely steady at a net rise of il to 2Vi points. Spot cotton here was easy, but unchanged, with sales of 859 bales for spinners. The southern spot market was unchanged and quiet. New Or leans was easy with sales of 5000 bales. Augusta declined l-16c. New Orleans expects tomorrow 5000 bales, against 4S76 bales last week for the same day, 13.808 bales last year for the same day and 16,172 bales foil the same day in 18!'3. Manchester was quiet and firm for yarns; cloths wore quiet. The ports received today 32,100 bales, against 35,055 bales last week for the same day, 55,073 bales last year for the. same day and 40,750 bales for the same day in 1893; thus far this week 142,355 bales, against 131,116 bales thus far last week. Memphis received today 3131 bales, against 3650 bales for the same day last week and 3994 bales for the same day last year; Hous ton receive/! 7841 bales, against 3133 bales for the same day last week and 9052 bales for tho same day last year. Houston receipts tomorrow are estimated at 8000 bales, against 12,371 bales for the same day last year. New Orleans advanced 4 points, but lost this and declined 10 to 11 points, of which 2 to 3 points was afterward recovered. Today’s features: The market was every thing by turns and nothing long, but it wound up lower, owing mainly to disturb ing political and financial reports from Eu rope. In tho early business there was some advance, owing to an active and higher market in Liverpool, continued light re ceipts at the ports and interior towns and dispatches stating that Neill Bros, had esti mated the yield at only 6,500,000 bales. Tho rise was aJso in a measure tracable to buy ing for Liverpool and continental account. But later on the prospect of some Increase in Interior stocks this week a reaction in Liverpool and the disturbing reports from Europe gave prices a downward impetus. The tone is unsettled at the moment be cause no one knows what may happen in Europe. Besides the speculation is not so aggressive on the bull side as recently. New Orleans is keeping more quiet, some of the southern spot markets showing weakness and the interior arrivals are likely to be a little lower this week than some had ex pected. 1 General Cotton Markets.
