siderably as the session advanced. May grad-.
ually easing off to 68 l ie Near the end of the

was mostly favdrable and the reaction ¦was
apparently due to technical causes. Traders
were Inclined to take profits on the pendtng
passage by the Senate of the financial bill,
whi.-h is taken for granted, and which has
been the basis of some speculation on account
of its provisions for expanding the currency.
Monry on call continued offering In abundant
pupply so that speculators were not made un
easy by the evidences of absorption of cash
by the gub-treasury and a continuing demand
from the Interior. The further rise In Liondon
discount rate caused a firm tone to sterling
exchange, but no quotable change In price.
The bond market was moderately active.

AYtc York Stock Market.
NEW YORK. Feb. 14.— The stock market to
£ay showed a continuance of yesterday's
•trength in the *>arly dealings, but the buying
demand rame almost altogether from profes
sional sources with the purpose of Inviting out
elde densand. The outside demand failed to
materialize, business from the eommisßion
houses continuing on a small scale. In fact
•filing orders to some extent came on the
market from the ommlsslon bouses which
¦was attributed to Western account, but v/trre
without explanation. The professional buyer*
•rrtw tired and sold to realize when the fu
tility of the attempts to attract outside buy-
Ing was perceived. Several points of porltlve
weakness were developed by the marching
rtlnrus of the b^ar» and stop-loss orders were
covered by offering price* down. The result
¦was a general reactionary tendency which
wiped out practically all of the earlier gain
and established Borne eharp losses in special
•tncks. The shorts covered before the close,
causing sharp rallies at the weak spots find
a jreneral stiffening of the whole market, as
a re«ult of which the closing was firm and
ret changes in -the majority of stocks small.
The local traction stocks and the Industrials
were the leadeit In the opening advance.
Sugar. Tobacco, Western Union. People's Gas.
I'reaced Steel. Rubber preferred and some of
the iron and etcel stocks were all represented
toy rains of 1 to 1H and" Tennessee Coal was
up Srr on rumors of a plan to retire the pre
ferred stock and begin dividends on the com
mon stock. Continued heavy buying was la
evidence In Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio,
St. Paul. Missouri Pacific and other stocks,
those named rising a point. Buying of some
of these were attributed !to operations by
rperulatlve -pools. The first point of weakness
to develop was Third Avenue on the announce
ment of a dividend of only 1 per cent, as com
j>ared with IVi per cent for the last quarter of
1899 and 1\ per cent for the three preceding
years. The stock fell an extreme 4\ and
caused »->-m pathetic weakness in the other
local traction stocks. Metropolitan West Side
preferred (Chicago) Jumped SH points on the
declaration of Its flrat dividend. The demand
for etocks was llrtlem for the rest of the day
and the bean made successive attacks on dif
ferent stocks. Rubber common and preferred
lost 4"-* /! '< i * points respectively. Continental
Tobacco was raided down S points on rumors
of a bond lrsue and American Tobacco lost Its
earlier gain In sympathy. Sugar fell 14 from
the top. Federal Bteel IH. Pacific Mall IVi and

New York mall advices say of Raisins:
"Trade in raisins Is confined to such orders as
naturally come to holders without special ef
forts In California loose Muscatels the pres
ent condition appears likely to remain un
changed for some time to come. The total sup
ply left in all positions is barely enough to
carry the trade through until the next crop Is
ready for distribution. There are almost none
In first hands, and what there are in second
hands are closely controlled. Foreign raisins
are very dull, and orders are so small that they
amount to virtually no business." .

BOSTON. Feb. 14.— The American Wool and
Cotton Reporter will say to-morrow:
The market has been very quiet, although In
the past day or two there have been evidence*
of a slightly improved inquiry and some sample
bags have been taken. Hoavy cancellations of
goods are reported, but In many cases these
are due to the fact that the goods were not up
to the quality of last year. But if the situa
tion of the manufacturers had bean correctly
reported they would welcome cancellation as
they are so heavily oversold. Consumers are
purchasing but very little wool, and except for
the sale of two or three good-sized lots of car
pet and cross-bred wools the aggregate business
of the week would figure small. Prices are
firm on low wools, but fine wools are dull.
The sales of the week in Boston amounted to
2.784,000 pounds domestic and 1.555.000 pounds
foreign, making a total of 4.363.000. against a
total of 3.3?1.000 for the previous week and a
total of 4.367,500 for the corresponding week
last year. The sales since January 1 amount
to 25.854,600 pounds, against 26,5C5.»)0 pounds
for the corresponding time last year.
