GOLD IMPORTS
ARE PROBABLE
XEW YORK, Dec. 14.— Apart
from its slightly: better tone, to
day's stock market differed in no
essential feature from that of the
preceding days. Business was at
much lower ebb, though display
ing , a broader .tendency, which
took in such specialties as Gen
eral Electric, Western Maryland
and American Beet Sugar, but the
bulk of the trading was limited,
as usual, to less than a half score
of active Issifes.
The annual report of the South
ern Pacific company for 1909-10.
showing earnings at the rate of
almost 13 p«r cent of the common
stock, an increase of about 3 per
cent over the previous year, im
parted a firmer tone to the Harrl
man group. The gain, however,
represented in large part the cash
received by Southern Pacific for
Its former holdings of Wells-
Fargo stock.
Money In London was in ex
cess of all demand and the lower
private discount, was • probably
basej on expectations of a fur
ther reduction of the bank rate
tomorrow. A small addition to
the Bank of England's gold hold
ings was announced. In this
market London bought sparingly
of the Harrlman issues. United
States steel and Amalgamated
copper.
Foreign exchange advanced al
most as sharply as It declined
y«?ster,lay, implying that the fall
was ajmost entirely of specula
tive origin. . Nevertheless, the
rate is still withii? the import
point and the belief that some en
gagements will be made before
the expiration of the year /still
prevails.
The general bond market was
steady. Total sales (par value),
$1,559,000.
United States bonds were un
changed on call.
NEW YORK. Dec. 14. —E. F.
Hutton & Co.'s wire says:
"Operations Jn securities today
by Important Interests was for
betterment in values. Stocks
were well taken from the opening:,
though no aggressive tactics on
the bull side were in evidence.
Jt is believed, however, that bank
ers' syndicates wished to keep the
heavy short Interest intact until
later In the week or the first of
the new year when a strong bull
demonstration will be made. Sen
timent is universally bearislv on
stocks, which has left the Wall
street position subject to a sharp
rise at any time as a result of
securities being In strojig han Js.
There was little new on the trade
situation worthy of mention... but
tMs factor has lost its weight as
a market Influence at the pres
ent." :-'.-:•

BOSTON. Dec. 14.— E. F. Hutton & Co"s
wire gays: A. firm tone prevails in the Boston
copper shares, although trading still continues
quiet. Lake has been the firm feature and ap
pears to be "well bought. Arizpna Commercial
has shown some \u25a0\u25a0activity and is quoted at 14*4.
Osceola so!d at 129, a gain of four points. Calu
met and Uecla sold at 545. an advance of five.
Other departments were stronger and trading is
very quiet..
The copper situation is slowly being broueht
under the guiding band of the bankers, just like
conl. Iron and oil. The public will learn to
differentiate between the real copper and share
6Cller.
Share holders of the Boston and Montana con
solidated copper company have received a call
\u25a0"'for a special meeting on .December 27 to con
sider a proposition to dissolve the corporation.
Practically nil the stock is in the Anaconda
treasury. The balance will be exchanged at n
rate of eight shares of Anaconda copper stock
for each share of Boston and Montana stock.
