Dried Fruit in New York.
The New York Commercial says:
"The upward tendency in all varieties of dried I
fruits continues, and prices are on the verge of j
an advance in a number of prominent lines. De
mand and inquiry are both much heavier, and
brokers and commission men are corresponding
ly jubilant. Even though business ha* seemed
exceedingly dull for me weeks, as a matter
of fact the fall demand has begun much
earlier than usual in some lines. This is due
to the fact that the market ie virtually bare of
some sorts, and buyers are compelled to go into
the market early to supply their customers.
"There is a fairly liberal movement in new
loose Muscatel raisins for consumptive pur
poses. Trading for the past few days has been
active, and some of the large sales reported in
process of negotiation are said to have been
consummated, but that statement cannot be
wholly confirmed. Sultanas are doing better,
and Valencias are moving out at good prices.
"Prunes tend upward, particularly the small
sizes, which are nearly unobtainable. Buyers
pay a premium for all small-sized prunes they
get. and 90s. 80s and 70s an. scarce in all posi
tions. Up to 3".< cis offered in some cases for the
four sizes in bags '.. >. b., while the three sizes
are held firmly at 3c. Demand ls increasing
and movement is much heavier.
"Peaches are firm, and the prices tend up
ward .ii all sizes and grades. Heavy specula
tive buying, removing perhaps 300 cars from the
regular channels of distribution, has had a
hardening effect on the market, and some
grades have gone up with a Jump. None are to .
be had below quotations, and many profess to j
think that further advances will be made \
shortly.
"Apricots, the shortest crop of all the dried
fruits, are firm and fending upward. Buyers
are iking more inquiry, but actual I transac
tions of any considerable size are not known."

EASTERN MARKETS.
New York Stock Market.
NEW YORK. Oct. 12.— stock market
made a couple of feeble and futile efforts to
advance this morning. The lethargy of the
trading was an invitation to bear aggression
and when a determined leadership developed
for that faction the professional element among
the traders was quick to follow the lead. A
single block of St. Paul of 6500 shares was
quickly followed by another of 4000 shares, of
fered by brokers who are usually employed
by the acknowledged bear leaders. Selling
generally all around the room was the se
quence. The two large blocks of St. Paul
went at 124%, ar.d the price had fallen to
123 Vi in a few minutes. The grangers. New
York Central, Cleveland, Cincinnati. Chicago
and St. Louie and the leading high-priced spec
ialties were the principal sufferers. Brooklyn
Transit was under conspicuous pressure and
dropped to 85%. Pullman made a brilliant ad
vance of 8% points on rumors of the coming
absorption of the leading competitor, which
were denied later. This was an Isolated In
stance of positive strength. Louisville was
the leader of the abortive advance and was
rather firm after having the advance wiped
out. Otherwise the heaviness was quite uni
form. The developments ln South Africa had
very little effect on the market. Call money
worked a shade easier and did not touch
higher than 7 per cent. What with last Sat
urday's receipts of gold from Europe and some
small accretions of the precious metal from
other sources and the relaxed pressure by the
sub-treasury, added to the further contraction
of loans which has been made, a more favor
able showing is expected from the New York
banks ln the Saturday statement. But the
general outlook ln the money . market Is con
sidered . anything but favorable. The violent
upward movement of half a cent In the pound
sterling rate both for actual and posted rates
is regarded as an admonition that an easing
of the money rate here ls likely to lead to
a demand from London for gold.
It ls exceedingly significant that the Bank
of England parted with some $165,000 ln gold
to-day for shipment to Paris, which city has
been looked to from all points as the avail
able source for relief for the need of gold.
A financial upset in Italy had a disturbing
effect In all the European money markets.
The sharp upward movement here not only
ln sterling exchange but also ln French ex
change suggests a coming pressure on this
center.
The bond market was moderately light and
shows generally decline. Total sales, par
value. $1,650,000.
United States 2s advanced % and the new
4s (registered) declined % in the bid price.

NEW TORK, Oct. 12.— The Commercial Ad
vertiser's London financial cablegram says:
The markets here opened dull, but recovered

were further stimulated by persistent ru

come to an agreement with Great Britain for
the use by the latter of Delagoa Bay. There
was good home and foreign buying. Portu
guese threes closed good. Consols were 103"-.®
103%.
•Vmerisan securities opened lower, owing to
the relapse in New York, but they revived
in Bympathy with the other markets. Later
New" York was the chief buyer in this de
partment. Closing prices were' Just under
those of yesterday's close. Louisville and
Nashville was the chief feature.
The Bank of England return was regarded
as rather unfavorable, but It had no effect on
money rates, which, as mentioned,; were
easier to-day. The bank further replenished
its store of gold to-day by purchasing £142,000
in bars and £33,000 in French coin.

to sell on Indifferent cables, though there was
good commission buying. Subsequently the

' Cincinnati Price Current was rather bullish,
