THE NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. Lenders Wanted High Rates and Were Left With Funds on Hands?In vestment Demand for Bonds. New York. Dec. 27.?The activity and the buoyant tone developed In tha stock market yesterday came as some tliins like a surprise. The market started off In as dull and listless a manner as possible. The tightness of the money market was looked to as a factor to repress speculation, and this was the caso early in the day, at which time the call loan rate rose to 12 per cent, with leans reported at 15 per cent. Later In the day it devol' oped that landers were oversupplled an J were left with considerable funds on their bands as a result of holding out for Ulsh rates. Low priced stocks came Into special favor and many of them were taken up successively and sharply advanced. There was undoubtedly a general con fidence that the danger of serious trouble In the money market between now and Jan. 1 is practically $&st, ow ing to the assurance against emer gency provided by the bankers' $50, 000,000 money pool and the stage tn which preparations have reached for the Jan. 1 settlements. Confident es timates show that probably $132,000,? 000 will be disbursed during January In the New York market. The mar ket closed firm and active. There was some investment de mand manifest for bonds, especially among some of the well-secured Is sues. Total sales, par value, $2,200, 000 United States 2s and 4s advanced Yt and the 3s, coupon, % per cent on tfio last call. COLLIDED WITH FREIGHT. Five Are Reported Dead and Fifteen Injured.

ORDERS COME FORWARD FREELY Healthy Tone in Iron and Steel and Bright Outlook for the Coming Year?Very Large Amount of Busi ness Will Be Carried Over. New York, Dcc. 27.?R. G. Dur & Co.*s Weekly Review of Trade, issued today, says in part: ?Trade and speculation experienced the customary holiday quiet, except in .Christmas goods, which sd.d freely, many packing and shipping depart ments being still engaged on this class of work, which could not be completed at the specified time. Industrial un dertakings are interrupted In manv cases by the taking of Inventories, while other plants are closed because fuel cannot be obtained. Orders still come forward freely, and the new year will operf with more business on the books than ever before. Prices of commodities are firmly held by the steady domestic demand, and there is a good export movement of the lead ing staples. In this, as in many other Instances, however, thete is still the drawback of inadequate transporting facilities which restrict shipments to the seaboard. Financial condition** are satisfactory. Railway earnings thus far reported for the month of December surpass last year's by 5.0 per cent and those of 1900 by 11.6 per cent. Healthy Tone in Iron and Steel. Quiet conditions in the iron and steel industry unaccompanied by any sign of weakness testify to the healthy tope and suggest a bright outlook for the coming year. Furnaces and mills will extend the season of Idleness be yond the usual time, not because or ders are lacking, but In order to ac cumulate a moderate supply of coke. The situation in regard to shipments from Connellsville has not improved. A very large amount of business will be carried over into next year, prob ably more than in any previous sea son. New contracts have come for ward more slowly of late, mainly be cause of the uncertainty as to date of delivery, although there are prospec tive purchasers who still anticipate better terms in 1903. Foreign pig Iron is ofTered slightly below domes tic quotations, but neither imported nor home made iron is available for immediate use in large quantities. Independent steel mills claim that they are unable to pay present prices for billets, which cost $31, or more for early shipment. Reports from the south show a large Increase In pro duction, as compared with any pre ceding year. The strongest depart ment of this Industry appears to be steel bars. In woolen goods there is a good de mand, overcoatings providing the chief feature, but cloak manufactur ers have also bought freely, especially of light colored lines. Woolen and worsted dress goods are quiet, but steady, and light supplies sustain flannels. Wool Is strong, with a further advance anticipated next year. Failures for the week numbered 209 In the United States, against 250 last year, and 21 in Canada, compared with 23 a year ago. Arrested on Suspicion. Lancaster, Pa., Dec. 27.?The body of Jacob H. Rostick, the Pennsylvania railroad track walker, whose body was found on the tracks two week* ago near this city, with the skull frac tured and a bloody pick handle near by. was exhumed yesterday and a bul let found at the base of the brain.
