PRICES RISE IN
STOCK MARKET
NEW TORK, March 2.— Prices of
stocks rose today to the highest
level yet touched on the recovery
from the severe decline which set
In after the first of the year. An
obstinate short interest was driven
to cover and the buying thus ne
cessitated was an important factor
in lif ting 1 " prices. :• 'V \u25a0
The movement against the shorts
showed evidence of organization
and the possession of large re
sources and also the employment
of the usual methods to push the
price movement. It owed its ef
fectiveness, however, to the small
offerings of stocks for sale, and
this condition, in turn, is due to
the subsidence of apprehension on
various accounts which was the
motive for the selling: earlier in
the year. \u25a0*-£•"\u25a0:'-\u25a0\u25a0'
In United States steel, particu
larly, there were signs' of activity
by an organized speculative party
which gave rise to surmises that
the market pool in that stock had,
resumed operations on the long
side. Announcement yesterday of
the retirement from the, directo
rate of John D. Rockefeller Jr.,
with the accompanying- explana
tion that the family holdings of
the stock "are not sufficiently large
to justify his giving any time or
attention to the affairs of the
corporation," was of a kind used
with depressing: effect sometimes
when speculation is in a different
mood.
The improvement reported in the
steel trade is responsible partly
for this better feeling. The steps
taken by the railroad corporations
to raise new capital with a view
to going forward with improve
ments and betterments form an
element In this feeling of encour
agement.
Even the copper trade came in
for a share of this cheerful feeling
today by reason of the reported
decline in the European visible
supply of the metal. The decrease
since February 15 was small, but
was the first reported for many
months and had added significance
from the large exports from this
country which have gone into for
eign supplies^ in the period cov
ered. The price of the metal
advanced strongly in London to
day .and copper securities there,
as well as here, advanced. .
Some disappointment was felt
that yesterday's rumors of agree
ment upon a basis for the settle
ment of the Philadelphia carmen's
strike were without confirmation.
Xo effect was caused in the mar
ket, however. , Little attention
was paid to any but favorable
news.
Discount rates eased in London,
but hardened in Berlin. Foreign
exchange here rose again and of
ferings of funds to lend on time
diminished, with strengthening ef
fect on interest rates.
Bonds were irregular. Total
sales, par value, $2,565,000.
United* States bonds were "'un
changed on call.

STOCK MARKET
Spring Valley water continued the leading
stock lv firmness yesterday, rising from $47.12^
to $49.25 under an actfve business. .The rise .111
this stock is attributed by some to prospects that
Ahe city eventually. will buy the plant, and by
others to manipulation to advance the shares iv
order to increase the valuation o* the plant.
Another strong" stock was Associated oil, which
advanced from $47 :to \u25a0 $49.25. Pacific lighting
corporation also was higher at $75. There was
a sale of San Francisco savings union at $sl£*

The cotton market was very nervous all th«»
session and showed an irregular morenjent with,
at times a gr*at deal of apprehension, resanlin
the March and May positions. There has been
so much talk in rejrard to the March and Mas
manipulation that the outstanding interests In
these. months, excepting . the account of the hi
operators and spot interests. Is believed to t£
comparatively small.
"The ;adTices from the soutn indicated a good
spot demand and full prices were paM -With"
tbe position of the Marih-April on tbe other slile
and the claims taat aa- important portion of th«
Liverpool stock has already been taken by snln
nera. there would seem t» be every reason to ex-*
pec-t a good demand fnr export. The new* in re
gard to trade positions seems tr> be virtnaPv
unchanged. There is but little new in this rp
spect. Tbe reports rather indicate a pause In
