A SlKitfilcnnt Feature Wan Heavy Deallnir In Investment. New York, Nov. 10. Today's stock mar ket presented all the aspects of a buoy ant bull speculation, but It was worthy of note that the most significant feature of the day on the stock exchange was the exceedingly heavj-. business in bonds and stocks of an investment character. The advances In stocks, even of the high grades, were of remarkable proportions, and, indeed, In that respect the move ments In the rallwty list overshadowed those In the Industrial group. It should hardly be necessary to show that the morning's definite news In respect to the outcome of the Congressional elections was the mainspring of and the chief in centive to the day's dealings In the mar ket. The issue of the elections was natural ly followed bj- heavy purchases for both local speculative account and by foreign arbitrage and banking houses. Indeed, the purchases by foreign banking houses were practically double those conducted on merely arbitrage account, and the to tal European purchases In this market were estimated as In excess of 70,000 shares. Practically the only other news of the day was furnished In the returns of railway traffic. The granger shares, with Rock Island the feature of the group, were conspicuous, but so also were Southern Hallway preferred, Louisville and Nashville, and Atchison preferred. The Pacific shares were likewlso strong and active. Manhattan was perhaps the most Important and significant exception to the general tendency for reasons pre viously set forth With the exception of the Reading shares, the anthracite coal stocks were Imctlvc. In the early deal ings Delaware and Hudson reflected re newed pressure. The Industrial group was actively dealt In. Pronounced ad vances were scored In the Federal Steel shares. People's Gas, and Sugar Refining, the movement in the last-named presum-ablj- reflecting the covering of short con tracts The general market closed active and buojant. New Yorlc Mock MnrUct.

The market opened buojant jesterdaj and continued strong qll daj-, with ad vancing prices and a general bullish feel ing. Prices opened a trifle above Wed nesdaj's close and closed at the highest figures for the, daj- ia manj- stocks, after a rise of from one to two points. There was bujlng to the extent of 30,000 shares bj foreign arbitrage, houses, and prices ranged higher In London. This was one of the bullish Influences. Another was the bujlng on this side by the speculative public, which almost unanimously takes the view that Republican success is a good thing for the stock market. At this point the question how much manipula tion had to do with the advancing prices Is a most important one. If the cliques made the advance largely there Is a strong probabilitj that it will not be con tinued, except long enough to get the public well Into the buying. This seems the more reasonable view, as prices are already high, and conditions no better than they were during the late Summer and early Autumns months. The market Is a most Interesting one to an j- who have watched fluc tuations In past oplmlstic periods. Take the view of the tjpical bull and there is a certainty now of the long deferred Mc Klnlej" boom in all Its rosy joyousness. Another party, strong in numbers also, and in experience, predicts that if the market advances It will be only until the public has gotten into It sufficiently to make respectable game for the profes sionals. The country Is In a fairly pros perous condition, as It has been for sev eral months, but stocks are already re latively high in price. The trading In bonds, which has been large for the past week, was especlally noteworthj jesterdaj-. The record for the forenoon was the largest ever made, over 16 000,000. Part of this bujlng -of bonds was undoubtedly for Investment and may therefore be taken as an Indication of confidence on the part of business men. A large part of the transactions, how ever, were for speculation simplj-. The grangers led the rallwaj- list In the trading all day and scored good advances. St. Paul's statement for the first week of November was well received and the gen eral hopeful outlook for these roads had Its effect after the long period of uncer tainty and lack of Interest in the market. The gross earnings of St. Paul for the first w eek were $34S,931, an Increase of $21, 318 over last jear and of $163,000 over 1S96. St. Paul advanced jesterdaj- from 1113-4 to 112 7-S, closing at the highest figure for the daj'. The most remarkable gain for the daj-, however, was in Rock Island, from 1015-8 to 107. There was large buj lng in this stock. Burlington went up one point. Southern Railway was very active and strong, the common stock advancing; from 8 1-2 to 9 and the preferred from. SS 1-8 to 371-4. There Is talk of Morgan bujlng In these securities, which may or may not have any foundation. There is excellent authority for the an nouncement that the Standard Oil people are buying People's Gas In large blocks. It is understood that representatives of the oil trust have made a thorough exam ination of the affairs of the gas company and are very much pleased with what they have found. It Is said to be probable that Standard Oil will be represented In the next elected directorate. Ladenburg, Thalmann & Co. state that American Steel will show enormous earn ings when the next statement Is made. They predict that the stock of the com pany will advance. There was a gain of over a point in the price yesterday. Tobacco was one of the weak stocks yesterday, almost the only one. There was a listing of a block of the preferred stock of the company on the stock ex change on Wednesday. This Is not an encouraging thing when the already tre mendous capitalization is considered. In a statement made by the company in its application for the listing fit the stock It It Is Not Difficult To Explain the Fact Tha Throna Go To the Office of D YOUNG Cor. 12th and FSts.

Wednesday and Saturday evenings from 7 to 8. was only figured out that there is a sur plus In the company by reckoning the good will, trade marks and patent rights at a valuation of nearly 325,000.000. which is undoubtedly an absurd assumption. No statement as to earnings was made by the company. The Pacific securities were especially active jesterdaj- and the advances in all cases were good. Northern Pacific pre ferred sold ex-dividend 1 per cent, but quicklj recovered the amount. There Is talk of a pool in Union Pacific operating on the strength of the companj'i. earn ings.

Liverpool was off 7-Sd. A sale of tvvo hundred thou sand Spring wheat was reported here, but the cash demand was not general. Most brokers were without orders. In spite of bad weather this side of the Mississippi receipts were large. The Price Current re ported the wheat crop to be maintaining a high condition. There was quite a jump in arrivals here, 521 cars, with ISO for tomorrow. Speculative dullness and the halting cash demand were the bear fac tors.
