New York Stock Market.
NEW YORK. Aug. 2.— Dull and apathetic
tradins marked the Stock Exchange session
to-day and the movement of prices was so
«lu«lsh as to be of little Importance. The
gutter of prices was Intermittently upward
and downward and was part of the time above
*nd part of the time below last night's closing
level. The resumption of business in the Lon
don stock market after a three days' holiday
bad little effect in reviving the influence of
the international political friction in Europe.
In fact, buying for London account was a fac
tor in the first hour here and helied to absorb
the light profit taking. Foreign markets them
selves seemed little aiTected by political j or
military events. In spite of the importance of
the harpenings In the Far Eart. A sharp re
action in Metropolitan Street Railway follow
ing yesterday's strength was the early feature
here and was easily traceable to th6 de
nial fcy President B-Mmoni of the ru
mor that Interborough capital was seeking the
control of tee Metropolitan system. Southern
Pacific seemed to enjoy a belated advantage
from to-day's report of large steel rail pur
chases for ta« Harrlraan system, while Union
Pacific was subjected to profit taking. Penn
sylvania made no response to the June earn
ings statement, which showed the continued
fail in gross earnings at last overcome by the
drastic retrenchments put . in force ¦ by . the
company. The extent of these retrenchments
offer a further formidable prospect to other
railroads, which eee in that . process the . only
method cf conservinx net" earnings, but which
may be r.ot so well equipped for reducing op
erating expenses. The day's discussion of crop
proepects was against the stock* marker. • The
deterioration in spring wheat reported by. the
Weather Bureau was more emphasized in the
estimates of some private authorities who have
following! in the speculative market.
The cotton market also reflected some anx
iety over the condition of that crop. The sus-
T-ense of the decision as to a strike of the an
thracite miners -was a repressive Influence on
th«. coalers, but the prevailing sentiment was
hopeful of avoiding a strike. >The unrest of
lsbor va> held before the public attention by
the tel'Krsphers' troubles on the Kansas and
Texas Railway. The market shewed decreas
ing resistance to the weight upon it ' and
clewed eaFy at about the lowest of the day.

Trade In deciduous fruits was quite active,
both on kral and shipping account, and top
quality offerings cleaned up pretty well at good
prices. Peaches led In point of demand, and.
although there was an abundance of low
grade fruit on hand, good stock was easily dis
posed of. some fancy lots in regular boxes
selling as high as €Cc per box. Large open
boxes did better, as the market had previously
been pretty well cleaned up. The top quotation
was obtained only for one line of exceptionally
fine fruit from Sonoma County, SI being about
the top for the general market. The cancers
were purchasing freely cf Green Gage Plums
and Bartlett Pears, but were not handling other
fruits. Apricots in bulk were easier, owing to
the lack of demand for canning purposes, and
the top quotation was obtained enly for Bmall
parcels of the very best stock. Plums. Prunes
and Apples had little change and the last
mentioned descriptions were very weak, with
supplies excessive. Seedless and Fontalaebleau
Grapes were very dull at the quoted rates,
while the Black and Muscat varieties were in
good request at firmer prices. There was no
change in Melons, the demand for good stock
being briak. Blackberries were weak at a

from Sebastopol, while all ether berries were

tons, against 374.CO0.
WHEAT— Foreign markets were firm, with
higher flguresi
Chicago nas excited and 2%c higher, chiefly
owing to the issuance of an estimate by Jones
of the Commercial West, who reduced his fig
ures on the crop to 530,000,000 bushels. This
is a marked falling off from preceding esti
mates. The volume of business was large.
Another source cf strength was the continu
ance of bad reports of the grain crop from the
Northwest, much of the Wheat in North Da
koti being reported dead frcm rust.
The Chicago wires of R. Brent Mitchell said:
"Liverpool closely followed the advance here
since last Friday and continental markets were
sharply higher and somewhat excited. The
broadening speculation U coming on the in
creasing crop damage complaints from the
Northwest. Theae are being confirmed from
all sources. The large receipts at primary
markets are to-day meeting with a Rood de
mand and prices are higher. There has been
free liquidation by the liberal short Interest
and a good deal of profit-taking by profession
al holders. The market, however, holds tha
advance well and reactions are very slight.
We regard the conditions, nowever, as bullish
and aavlse buying Wheat on fair recessions.' 1
This market was very firm, and sellers asked
higher prices for both California and Northern
Club, but buyers were unwilling to pay the
advance. Trading In futures was excited and
heavy, about 15,000 tons selling on the morning
session. The advance was due to the. Chicago
rl9e and covering by shorts, and amounted to
3»4c.

ally were bullish. . There were indications of
a large cash business here. Broomhall cables
that the shortage in the Danubian corn crop and
the general shortage in the fodder crop of
Europe is making a strong situation. These
were the incentives in to-day's advance. The
weather Is fairly favorable. The recent devel
opment of an export demand has -materially

though there Is no scarcity ia the general mar- S
ket, as the medium and lower grades are still
abundant and not firm. Receipts continue to '

the reduction in stock* Is attributed to the In- i

CHICAGO, Aug. 2.— Wheat for September
delivery sold on the Board of Trade to-day for
9414c an advance of 2%&2%c, compared with
Saturday's closing- figures. The sharp upturn
was duo to alarming reports of rust damage to
spring wheat in the Northwest and to almost
equally i>eEslmisUc advices from foreign coun
tries. The market closed at the high point of
the day. Other trains were influenced by the
strength of wheat. Septemtx-r corn closing with
a gain of 2%®2Vic. Oats are up 1%^1%C.
Provisions are unchanred.
From start to finish the wheat market was
an exceptionally strong affair. An eslmate
made by a Minneajwlis crop report that the
total winter and opting wheat crop of the
United States would not be to exceed 350,000,-
COO bushels caused active covering by shorts
at the opening. As a result Initial quotations
on September were up H'S'Vsc to H^f«c at
»2iie4«2%o.
Another factor of almost equal Importance
that contributed to the early bullishness was
the strength of all foreign grain market*. Liv
erpool being up from l?&d. compared with Fri
day's close. The price of wheat at Budapest
was reported to be from 7c to tsc higher than
Saturday's final nzures, ar*4 this added zest
to the buying. Many traders discredited these
figures, but when confirmation was forthcom
ing skeptical ones quickly Joined the bull ele
ment. Crop advices from the Northwest con
tinued to dilate on enormous damage by rust in
the spring wheat fields. Damage reports were
partly substantiated by the weekly Weather
Bureau bulletin. About P*.e only news ol a
bearish character was a decrease of 314.000
liu.-th.--lj- in the world's visible supply, as against
a decrease of l,«5n.W>0 bushels last year. The
rruirkt . receivrd the support of an active gen
eral demand throughout the entire day, buying
by Ncrthwest houa*s beinc especially heavy.
Foreigners also bought more freely in this mar
ket to-day than for several we-.ks pact.
With the exception of a slight recession so«n
after the oieiiicg, when September touched
M%e, prices moved steadily upward, the close
being practically at the top. Final quotations
on September were at »4 1 »©'>1Uc, after the
price had reached 94 Uc Clearances of wheat
mi! flour were t^ua! to De.Sco bushels. Pri
mary Tf i •::¦!» -»era 723.CW bushels, against
S37,iuO bu*hels a year ago. Minneapolis, Du
luth and Chicago reported receipts at 46^ curs,
compared with 400 can last week and £32 cars
a year ago.
In th- corn market a burst of bull enthu
siasm at the opening was followed by a rather
easy tone, there being Influential selling by a
broker supposed to be acting for a leading
ele\ator concern. The market closed near the
highest point of the day. September opened
>,c to %c higher «t 51US 51%c. sold between
51c and WUc and closed at B3H93314& Local
receipts were 269 cars, wltli lti of contract
grade.
More than usual interest was taken in the
oats market. The market closed strong and at
th" top. September opened a shade lower to
a shade higher at 33ftfi33%c. sold up to 34Tic,
where it closed. Local receipts were 2S0 cars.
Notwithstanding the strength of grains the
provision market remained quiet and easy. A
decline of 10c In the orlce or hoes was the
principal bear influence. September pork
closed 21 %c lower. Lard was off 2%@5c. Ribs
were unchanged.

The market for new white Potatoes devel- I
oped a stronger tone under decreased receipts !
and a brisk demand for local consumption, and •
prices of the best stock ranged higher. Low
grade offerings, particularly those In sacks.
were plentiful and hard to eeil. and some
very poor lots were offered below tha quota
tions, but found no buyers. Onions continue
to weaken and stocks are steadily accumulat
ing.
Tomatoes were Inclined' to firmness during
the early hours, as one of the river boats was
delayed and did not arrive In time for tha
regular trade. The market weakened again, i
however, upon the arrival of the belated boat. I
and as usual there was a heavy surplus un- !
sold at the close. Fresh arrivals of Egg Plant
and Green Peppers did better, but old stock,
which was abundant, continued to drag at ir
regular prices. The other vegetables wer«
generally weak, and prices had but slight va
riation.

is quiet this week, most manufacturers having
freely stocked up during the early part of
the summer. Dealers have sold enough of
their new wools to make them feel Inde
pendent for some time and a firm, tone pre
vails. Future prices depend to some extent
on the state of the goods market, which has
not been as active as the manufacturers would
like. Fleeces and territory wools are firm and
the present demand for fleece wools Is largely
for the medium grades. . -
