The Tone w Wall Street.
The New Tork circular of Henry Clews says: ,
"The general tone of the local market con- j
tinues good. Confidence in a broader and more
active market during the autumn ie almost uni- j
versa). This, of course, is based upon the ex- ;
traordinary wave of prosperity which extends
over the whole country, and which as yet !
Shows no signs of having spent Its force. The
Iron and kindred Industries are making a won
derful record; our whole history fails to show
a parallel. Haw materials, such a* pig iron,
copper and tin, show advances from lowest <
prices of from 50 to 100 per cent. Finished
product*, of course, show no such rise; but in
many Instances price is a secondary condition
with buyers, delivery being the main want.
So far, high prices do not seem to have check- ■
ed business, and there has been a remarkable i
absence of speculative buying. Later on these |
conditions must check purchases and defer re- ■
pairs Improvements and new enterprises until
values recede to a normal basis; but this stage
of affairs has not yet been reached. Until It :
approaches we are not likely to witness any
Important recession In the stock market.
••Railroad earnings continue making satis- ,
factory gains, giving rise to all Borts of hopes i
regarding Increased dividend?. Some of these
are likely to meet with disappointment: for [
present conditions mean Increased costs in j
operating that will materially modify unrea
sonable expectations. A little skepticism re
garding dividend rumors will do not harm.
Some of the best railroad stocks are held at .
prices that offer slight chances for further |
profits. As already Intimated in these advices, j
however, there ar-? a number of low-priced Is- i
sues of reorganized properties which had been
more or less neglected and which must show
large appreciation as they approach from a
non-dividend to a dividend-paying basis.
"The market Is likely to have the support |
of big operators for some weeks to come; and
as these return from summer resorts dealings
will be resumed with greater activity. Com
paratively little attention is being paid to crop I
reports. It is certain, however, that we shall j
have sufficient wheat and corn for home and
foreign wants; and that our farmers will ob- i
tain reasonably good prices for their crops, j
Prosperity Is shining upon the fields of the ;
West as well as up the mills of the East."

EASTERN MARKETS.
New York Stock Market.
NEW YORK, Sept. 6.— St. Paul was the cen- i
tral figure In the market to-day. The publica
tion of the annual report with Its great detail '
of facts and figures 1 , all showing extraordinary j
prosperity was the motive of the buying, which I
was very large and which carried the price '■
Steadily upward nearly 2 points. So wide a I
movement in a standard stock of St. Paul's i
character was looked to to arouse some sym- i
pathetic strength in the general market. The i
Kt. Paul movement in the upper stages of the ;
advance showed some signs of manipulation ]
lor the purpose of sustaining the general mar- |
ket. There was quite free selling wherever
there was a notable advance. in price, and th*
last hour was given over to an active realizing ;
movement, which clipped off >4 of St. Paul's j
gain and carried prices generally below last I
Slight's level. The dump In call money to 6
per cent induced the realizing. The exceptions
•were a number of usually obscure stocks,"
which were marked up In quite a sensational
manner Tennessee Coal dashed up and down
In an erratic manner all day, climbing 9V» i
points In the first hour and dropping again to j
■within 3 points of last night. The feverish de- I
maud for this stock is attributed to a large i
short interest which finds itself obliged to set
tle with a practical corner In the stock, accord-
Ing to current rumor. This is Wall street's :
« (Tort to explain the movement, which seems I
extraordinary without it in a stock which has I
paid no dividend for twelve years, which has
a preferred stock ahead of It on which six !
years' dividends have accumulated and are
payable before a dividend i. due on the com
mon. The movement In Colorado Fuel, which
reached about 4 points, was in close sympathy
■with Tennessee Coal, as was that of 3 points
In Hocking Coal. There were rather rensa
tlonn! advances also in Pullman, the Buffalo,
Rochester and Plttsburg stocks, which gained
about- 7 points each, and Colorado Midland j
preferred. Southern Pacific and Central Pacific
recovered about" 1!4 of their recent declines, ;
and the Southwestern stock:; and coalers ad- j
vanced temporarily, but more than lost the j
pain. Sugar underwent the same experience,
rising 2 points on the declaration of the regu- !
jar dividend, and then reacting an extreme 3*4.
The New York municipal stocks all weakened !
during the day, Brooklyn Transit having de
clined 2"i after an Initial rise, and. Consoli- I
dated Gas shewing a loss of ZSi. New York ;
Airbrake dropped 3 points. Republic Steel,
after gaining 1%, dropped abruptly 3>4. and
American Smelting was conspicuously weak.
The marked activity of the trading was very
unevenly distributed, but brought forward
quite a number of usually Inactive stocks.
There was no change in the money market
to day. Call and time money rates were quite
stiffly held. There was a further deposit of
$150,000 at the sub-treasury for shipment to
New Orleans. Exchange at Interior points in- |
dicate pressure on this center for funds, and
Ihf» sub-treasury continues to absorb cash from,
the banks. Notwithstanding the hardness of
money here and the somewhat easier tone in
London, sterling exchange was firm In New
York and advanced a fractional % on actual
business.
The bond market was quiet, but prices were
well held. Total sales, par value, $2. 367, 000.
United States bonds were unchanged on bid
quotations. \

Chicago Wheat Market.
CHICAGO, Sept. I— Wheat opened , un
changed for December and a little lower lor
September, the latter on account of heavy re
ceipts in the Northwest. Little wheat was
' offered for sale, and shortly after the open-
Ing the change in the aspect of outside mar
' kets, which have been relatively weaker than
Chicago for some time past, but which to-day
i ...... comparatively stronger, Induced some
cowering by the more timid shorts, and a good
advance in prices took place. December
. ■■.;■'. at 71® 7114 c and advanced to 71%fff71<>tiC.
while September opened 'Ac lower at s»c5 »c and
advanced to 70**0. The advance was sufficient
I to Induce realizing, which carried prices back
fractionally, but after a long period of com
parative dullness, during which December
hung around 71U@71%c. the continued strength
of the Northwest and other outside markets
and the improvement in the export demand
increased the volume .of trade in the specu
lative market and again advanced prices. The
strength shown by September was especially
noticeable. There was a good demand for
this from elevator people and shorts, and the
spread between September and December nar
! rowed to l'.ic. The strength was in spite of
the liberal country movements and free offer
ings. Buying by shorts was quite heavy dur-
I ing the late trading, and the best prices of
'. the day were reached shortly before the close.
December advanced to 71% c and closed at 71%
; @71% c. September sold at 70%'q"70%c and
; closed at 70% c ..
Corn was steady for December and about
steady for deferred futures. Reports of seri-
I ous damage by hot dry weather were received,
! and lake rates were reduced about lie, help-
I Ing the corn shipper that much. A premium
over September was bid for cash, but it was
difficult to get. Reports of rain In Illinois and
a general desire to realize caused an easier
feeling during the li>Her ■ part of the session.
December closed lie higher.
A fair general trade was done in oats.
Prices in the main were influenced by the
action ' of wheat and corn and ruled a little
higher throughout. December closed %c high
er. September closed 14@lic higher.
Provisions were fairly 'active and strong,
helped' most by an excellent cash demand,
particularly for lard. There was some realiz
ing through commission houses, but prices ad
vanced steadily under a good general demand
and closed at about the top. Cables were
higher and confidence In present market prices
was expressed. At the close October pone

Boston Wool Market.
BOSTON, Sept. «.— The American Wool and
Cotton Reporter will say to-morrow:
The trade as a whole reports a quiet market
during the past week, but a few houses have
consummated some good-sUed deals, and as a
result the total sales of the week aggregate a
large total, one house alone disposing of about
2,000,000 pounds of wool, comprising I. SOU, 000
I 11 is of Montana. Most houses report a
small business, but there Is no diminution In
the strength prerlously shown, ami wo .is con
tinue to be stiffly held, generally at top fl
ares. Manufacturers, It appears, have been
testing the market for all It is worth, ami are
doubtless satisfied that they have had a strong
market to butt against. AH cheap wools are
practically eliminated and old mothy woola
have been pretty well cleaned and gone Into
consumption, so that the markets present a
clean stock and a price whi. h la low to-day
compared with that of other countries, particu
larly on fine wools. There has been eonpnler
able looking around on the part of manufactur
ers and lota of sample bags have been taken,
which it is believed, will lead to a good busi
ni ss In the course Of a week or two. Manufac
turera are buying only such wools as they need.
however, and little speculative tendecy 1b
noticeable in the market to-day.
The sales of the week in Boston amounted to
6 I'M 800 pounds domestic and 4."'\000 pounds
foreign, a total of 6. 640, 'W0, against a total of
3 955 000 for the previous week and a total of
1,815,000 for the corresponding week last year.

Hay and Feed stuffs.
There Is .no change In Fe.edstuffs.
. The circular of Somers & Co. says of Hay:
"Matters continue rather uninteresting, with
no improvement, of any kind, either in the de
mand or prices, for any particular grade. It
Is true that receipts of choice Wheat Hay are
somewhat light and it may be that this par
ticular grade will be In good demand and sell
ing for a somewhat better figure within a
short time. We still note a fair demand for
good quality red or black 4 cultivated Oat Hay;
other than these two particular varieties there
is no especial grade that Is sought for or that
sells for even a fair price.
"Reports from many localities are to the
effect that there Is yet a large amount of Hay
to be marketed that cannot find storage room..
This makes us look for a rather gloomy mar
ket until the Hay is all marketed or under
cover. \fter that time It is all a matter of ]
speculation. Should the foreign demand or a
demand from the southern portion of the State
increase we may possibly see a range of prices
j .*; or $3 per ton in advance of the present range.
! This cannot be determined at the present time.
j and on the whole the prospect is not at all en
couraging to holders. It is generally conceded j
that after the rains set in prices will advance
enough to cover the expense of storing, in
surance, etc."
