L No change was mado today In the discount rate of the Bank o England, and on this account the London Hock market, which had opened weak, later scored a general recoery. There seemed to be some doubt in the local mar ket as to what the disposition of the for eign dealings here would be today, and nt the opening- of business the trading bad a tone of hesitancy. As was to be ex pected, hon ever,, a. clearer notion obtained abroad as to the probabilities of heavy cold shipments to the United States, and after soiling a few thousand shares at the opening pf business, foreign houses turned buj ers, and with the course of the morning took back about one-half of tho Rjnount sold yesterday, or about 10,000 shares. The local market reflected at once this change In disposition of the for eign dealings, and more particularly the belief that the liquidation apprehendei In the eent of an extensive inflow of .gold had been aerted. London cable advices reported tho cancellation there of wme standing American orders for gold. roieign adUces were not -very explicit In regard to the financial crisis at Ber lin, but from the comparative steadiness of the London market it was assumed that matters were no more acute than they have been for some time. The local situation was featureless, the money and lorelgn evchange markets presenting un altered conditions Of the traffic returns reported, the most Interesting showing was that of the Loulsivlle and Xaslnille for the month of October, the company reporting a net Increase In earnings of 51S2.9U, or more than SO per cent. Speculative interest was fairly well dis tributed throughout the list, though the transactions were in only fair volume. Notably strong features were Peojrte's Gas, Sugar Refining, Louisville and N'ash Ivlle, Southern Railnaj preferred and Consolidated Gas. Purchases of the last named were doubtless Induced by the transfer of the control of the Mutual Gas Company to parties thought to be acting In the Interest of the Consolidated Com- I pany and tho general amalgamation project. The course of Sugar Iteflning indicated that the short Interest had abandoned hope of relief from their position through a reduction in the dividend. The granger shares took only a small part In the daj's mfirlr.t thmir-Ti thpv nora nil flrtn Th general market closed strong and active, j t ith Sugar Kenning the conspicuous fea ture.

Bull movements on the eve of the as sembling of Congress have been rar.?, if not unknown, in the past, and it is not to be supposed that this jear will fur nish an exception to the rule. Prices are alreadj' high as the result of a movcrrent that has continued for several weks Stocks already look overbought. The public as the only buj er. The larger in terests have been liquidated. It would feeem the safe plan for several dajs to come, unless there is some remarkable change in the situation, to keep out cf the market or to sell shocks. There mi large manipulation In the low rrked securities jesterday and prices were forc ed up somewhat In manj of them, but the total of the daj's business was far from encouraging to the people who have been expecting continued heavy bujing end advancing prices. Sugar was very strong yesterday, ad vancing to 123 3-8 at the close. The gen eral understanding In the street that the regular dividend will be declared next week helped the manipulation of ti e stock. It is almost an invaridb'e ru'e that the Trust puts up its stock b fore dividends are declared. It U b.lev.d that 130, at least, will be the price next week. Bold manipulation- of Kansas City, Pittsburg and Gulf forced the stock up tD S3 In the early dealings jesterdaj, but did not crcato enough demand to hold it at the higher figure. It Is understood that the stock is peoled and tied up in such a. waj- that It Is verj' easj- to con trol its fluctuations. Little Is hea:d of the deal which this companj- is sup posed to be making with, the Chicago and Alton. The Southern stocks, Louisville .and Nashville, and Southern Rallwaj-, com mon and preferred, were all verj' .trong jesterday. Tho earnings of Ltu'sville were a stimulating argument in Its I av or. and the certainty that a dividend of cue per cent will bo declared on Southern preferred this month was equallj potent as an Incentive to buj- the stock. Louli illle opened at 63 and went to C3 1-2 at tho close, Tho Southern securities closed at 10 3-S and 41 S-S. Central and Southern Pacific were the features of the afternoon trading. Pa ciflc Mall was also strong. These three companies of Mr. Colls P. Huntington's have been particularly -active reventlj", and they have many friends who say that I.lr. Huntington intends to boom the etocks. The prospects of all the com panies are excellent, and It would seem that very little pool manipulation would be necessary to start a good rise in the securities when the market is favor able. They have none of them received the consideration from tho street that has been given to many stocks less Gorthj-. Pacific Mall is especially inter esting at this time because of the fact that the company will he one of the first to profit directly from tho business with tho new American possessions. "'r. J. Plerpont Morgan, one of the largest stockholders in the Federal Steel concern, hi Quoted as helns particularly sarguine of the future of the company. TTi.h such a large port oTthe steel busi r -s of the country, there can bo no r ucstion that the .Treat promised, activ ity In steel will make the earnings of the company boom. Prices at present are pitch that there Is. a good profit in the lmsiness. 'And all the Indications are that harmony has been restored among the manufacturers, so that it is to be sup posed these prices will b kept up. The securities of the company were strong yesterday. It is predicted that a figure obov e 90 -will he rtached by the preferred within a few weeks. American Cotton Oil hadan advance jester-day from 32 to 34. The pavment of the 3 per cent, dividend on the stock, the first In the history of the company, took place. The common stock Is 20, 000,000 at par, and the divided was thus 5C00.JuO. It Is 9 per cent on the n-es-cnt value of the stock, which Is certainly an excellent Investment, considering- the very good prospects of the company. The earnings of the company for the present j ear are estimated to have been very nearly 3 1-2 per cent on the common stock. The great cotton crop, making the raw material of the company very cheap, and the Increased demand for its products, suggests the probability that the earnings of the concern will be even greater this jear than last. St. Paul's earnings for the fourth week of November will probably show an In crease of at least J30.0CO There was little activity in the grangers vestcrday, and the fluctuations In the prices were small The feeling with regard to the grangers has undergone somewhat of a, change since the indisposition of the stocks to advance has become so manifest- Mr. William Ht Butler, the. president of the new Union Tobacco Company, was until his election one of the directors of the American Tobacco Company. He has resigned from the trust; and will devote all of his large abilities and knowledge to tho rival company. Tobacco was one of the few stocks which did not advance jesterday, a full point decline having taken p'ace. The street is exceedingly bearish on Tobacco. Another very large days business was done on the local stock exchange jes terday. Nine stocks were traded in, and five local bond Issues, In addition to the business done in Government bonds. The number of shares traded in was 1,600, and the value of the business exceeded 540, 000. The record of the daj- was similar to that of all recent days on the exchange In that prices were moved up most en couragingly in almost every stock. Capi tal Traction went to SO 3-4.
