Everything on the , New York stock exchange has gone up from 5 to 10 per cent in the last two weeks. The rise is especially noticeable in railroad and steel stocks; in fact all industrial t-tocks have been climbing rapidly. Burlington railway stock has gone up 13 a share in the last three days. In the past two weeks T. & P. has increas ed $7 on the share, and M. P and I & N. have In the last ten days reached the highest points In their history. M. P. now being 1024 and L. & N. 1004 a share. Rock Island has today gone up from 129 to 136. This rise in one day's time is phenomenal for railroad stock. The last five days the Western Union stock has been on a big boom and today it stands at 97. the highest point in its history. Purchasers of this stock last night made a dollar on every share by opening time this morning. The people who are kicking them selves the hardest for not being in the swim when this increase was going on are those who receive tips on Mexican Central and refused 10 take advantage cf them. Within the last 30 days this stock ha crawled steadily upward from 15 to 25. The prospects are splendid for these increasese in value to continue. There has been .nothing to indicate that any of the stocks have reached their zenith. The proposed consolidation cf the oGuld roads has caused the increase In value and the Indications for the con- suniamtion of the project are as good as ever. There is a strong talk of the con solidation of the Burlington and the Northern Pacific, and that has been the stimulus that brought up the price of stock of these two roads The pros pects for some big corporation operat ing a railroad system in the United States taking charge of the Mexican Central has brought that stock up ten Txtintn in thlrtv rinva and tha nrosnects are Just as good today as ever, hence it is reasonable that all these stocks will continue tc ascend. ' Corn - and provisions are also stiff. Corn has gone up 3 cents on the bushel . in the past week. ' MEXICAN MONEY IN EL PASO. . 50 - MONEY & METALS (New York,) Money closed 2, offered no loans.

IMPORTANT INSURANCE DECISION United States Court Rules Out Pay ment By a Note. The "Boston Transcript" of Saturday says: "The United States circuit court of appeals sent down a decision Friday reversing the judgment of the circuit court and setting aside the verdict which was for the plaintiff in the case of Marion H. Simmons vs. the Mutual Reserve Fund association. The suit was on a policy of insurance obtained by George W. Simmons, who died in February 1S98. The verdict in the cir cuit court was for $16,190 and it Is set r.side. It appears that Simmons took out the policy through one White an fgent of the defendant, in Boston. No nioney was paid at the time of the de livery of the policy but Simmons gave his note for the premium to White The policy which Simmons received stated in large type that it did not at tach until the premium was paid in cash. It further appeared that Sim n.ons had arranged with White to ad vance the corporation on his (Sim mons's) account 35 per cent of the pre mium, it being the practice of the com pany to permit agents to retain 65 per cent. There was no evidence, however, that the eomfTVjy ever assented to its a;ent receiving payment of any por t.on of the premium in anything other than cash. Immediately after the death of Simmons the defendant learned the facts with reference to the non-payment, of the premium by him in cash and cancelled the transaction so far as it could. The court in its opinion says the record fails to show that anybody e-'er paid, or agreed to pay. the entire premium called for by the policy, eith er in cash or otherwise, so that the pol icy never attached.
