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

Five Are Reported Dead and Fifteen
Injured.
London, Ont., Dec. 27.?It is report
ed that the Chicago express on tho
Grand Trunk railroad, which left here

hour. The latest reports from tho
sccne of the wreck state that five per

Pittsburg, Kan. Dec. 27.?It is re
ported that Joe Godley, a brother of
Montgomery Godley, who was lynched
by a mob here Thursday, is wounded
and in hiding at Weir City, Kan., anil
later Investigation of the trouble be
tween Officer Hinkle and the Godley
brothers tends to show that Joe, and
not the rann who was lynched, fired
the shot that killed the policeman.
Two other brothers, Gus and Jess, are
in Jail at Glrard, charged with being
implicated in the murder, but Joe es
caped. The mother of the Godley
boys Is said n have asked a physician
here to ticat Joe tor a gunshot wound
In the neck. She would not tell the
whereabouts of her son, and the doc
tor refused to go with her.

Misunderstood Orders.
Edison. O., Dec. 27.?The eastbound
Cincinnati and Eastern express on
the Big Four was derailed at the
crossing of the Toledo and Ohio Cen
tral railroad here while running at a
high rate of speed early yesterday.
The accident resulted from a misun
derstanding of signals, the passenger
train going off the track at a derail

wrecked. Engineer Stump and Brake
men Reed and Lampkln all received
slight Injuries. No passengers were

Industrial Enterprises Inter
rupted by Taking of Inven
tories and Fuel Shortage.
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. The
murderers had planed to hide their
crime by placing the body so that the
cars would run over it. Two young
men from Columbia named McCoy and
Gutterman are under arrest, and the
authorities claim they have strong
evidenco against them.
Army Officer Missing.
Denver. Dec. 27.?Second Lieuten
ant William M. Kistler, Company M.
Eighteenth United States infantry,

private in the Sixth cavalry six years
ago at Philadelphia. Shortly there
after he went to the Philippines and
saw service in and about Manila.
Coadjutor to Archbishop Elder.
Cincinnati, Dec. 27.?An official let
ter from Rome, creating the office of
coadjutor to Archbishop Elder, has
been received here. A vote will be
taken by the irremovable rectors and
councillors of the diocese, then by the
bishops of the province, and after
ward by the archbishops of the coun
try. The three lists will be sent to
the propaganda, which will recom
mend to the pope. The pope then will
announce his decision.

only food the members of the crew
had on Christmas day was a piece of
bread, a slice of bacon and a baked
potato. Since tnat they have had
nothing save bread. The greater por
tion of the trip p.cross the Ice was
made on hands and knees. The boat
