On steadiness buy copper and keep long some steels. Chicago Barrell : Prices have re sponded to the bullish news and bear ish advices have bten almost entirely overlooked. Logan Markets get congested eas ily on any little break and for this f?cson we think buyers who take ad vantage of the soft spots will get in right. Prlngle We continue to advise buy ing wheat. Brown We do not expect an active market for the next few days as holi day conditions will probably exist. Melntyre The best that can be ex pected is a narrow irregular traders' market with probability of prices go ing somewhat lower before there Is any upturn of importance. Miller The market is so highly pro fessional that immediate opinions aro not particularly valuable. Tne stand ard stocks. Union and Reading, how ever, seem to hold well. Pick We expect the market to con tinue quiet and irregular until after January payments preparations have been completed and New Year's Day is past. The necessities of the bank end scar city of money will prevent buying. On the Other hand we doubt that there will be much selling except that which professional traders may do for short account. Ridgely The market Is so dull there is not much to say. Think purchases either for investment or on margins should be made. Perons who buy out right will do better by taking the speculative shares than those of the conservative properties for example. Union or Brooklyn Rapid Transit will prove much more profitable than Penn sylvania or stocks of that class. We are reliably informed that the banks are in splendid shape and the only thing to prevent very cheap money within next month or so is the demand of the railroads. Financial Bureau Union will meet strong support toward 113, Southern Pacific 70, Rending 92 and then S9. Northern Pacific and Great Northern 113. We would buy these stocks toward the supports and protect by stop orders. Liquidation may continue in Pennsylvania, New York Central, Missouri and St. Paul, the technical position not being good nor the in formation on New York Central, St. Paul and Pensylvania favorable.

Fearing another strike of commercial telegraphers when the republican national convention opens next June, the telegraph com panies are taking steps to stamp out all agitation among their employes. The Postal company is asking each employe to sign a contract containing the following clause: "I"am not a member of any union and I hereby agree not to join any union or any other organization hos tile to the interests of said company, while in its employ.'- The employes were told it was not compulsory on them to sign the con tract, but they were given a hint that it might be well to do so If they wished to remain in the service. Secretary Wesley Russell of the Telegraphers' union said yesterday that the Western Union company had cut off the 10 per cent increase in wages granted last spring. He declared that he personally knew men in tha Chicago office who have been reduced as much as $32.50 a month since the strike ended. One man, he said, who at tended only two union meetings dur ing the strike, was reinstated at a re duction of $16 a month and told he had been "too active" during tho strike. "We are not discussing our plans at this time," said Secretary Russell, "but we are not through with the companies. They are discriminating against our members to such an extent that it will force us into another fight, and next June would be an opportune time. Both companies have an understanding not to keep in their employ any. man who was at all active in the recent strike." Both companies declare there is no discrimination, but that the introduc tion of machines and the loss of busi ness have made it impossible to hire a great number of their former em ployes.

TURNER, President. I have been asked many times why I located here instead of down toAvn in the main business center. I considered that matter well eleven years ago, and de cided that I could get all the pa tients here that I could attend to. and have proven such to be the fact. I could do no more if down town. My expenses are so much less here that I can afford to treat people for about one-half the amount I would be compelled to charge them if down town; be- sides, South Chicago is now large enough bo that it has become an independent business center, with a great future before it.
