todays stock market wcro In cry light
olumc traillns bclns restricted by the
near approach of the three las susren
Flon of business The general tone of the
market hone or js firm uitli consplc
tious strength appearing In certain iuir
ters Little that was noel was presented
for consideration upon the opening of
business Sorrcwhat unexpectedly the
London market for Arnerictn locks had
an Improving tendency and foreign houses
were bujers here to a sufficient cttnt to
affect material the course of prices dur
ing the forenoon London houses bought
upward of shires of stocks the
largest foreign purchases being in the
Erie and the other anthracite coal issues
The trading was light throughout the
dayNind was roorl distributed It seemed
to be commonly apprehended that the
money market tomorrow would work
much closer although in todajs moc
ments there was little or nothing to lead
to such an opinion The bulks coutlnre
howecr to lose heavily to the Sub
Treasury and th shipments of currency
to the AVett appear now to have set in in
lolumc The das returns of railway
traffic were lilghlj encouraging with par
ticularly notenorthj exhibits being made
by the St Paul and Union Pacific com
panies
As noted interest was- not well distrib
uted and in fact active trading was
largely conilned to the railway list The
fluctuations in the United States Steel
issues were cry narrow and little else
was done In the Industrial ouarter al
though the International Paoer issues
were decidedly firm The specialties were
likewise dull but n firm tone prevailed
in that quarter particularly for General
Electric Consolidated Gas and Pacific
Mail There were few transactions in the
local traction group
In the railway list Missouri Pacific was
the conspicuously strong feature and
noteworth advances elsewhere were
noted in Erie Mexican National Ontario
and Western pnd the St Louis and San
Francisco issues The Colorado Southern
Eharcs continued very strong the move
ment therein being based on the Increase
in the dividend on the first preferred
stock St Paul and Union Pacific were
but little helped by the fine showings
made by both companies today the deal
ings in St Paul being largely determined
b the uncertalntv respecting the rate of
dividend to be declared next month

The chief characteristic of jesterdajs
stock market was its dullness The ses
sion was one of the least interesting and
least productive of business of the sum
mer Prices were well held up however
and even made fractional gains In most
cses so that us far as the business went I
it was more in ravor of the bulls than the
bears This was somewhat of a surprise
to the street general wnith had looked
for further realizing in view of the holi
day from todav until next Tuesday and
because the financial experts generally
have said that tomorrow s bank statement
will be a poor one Ttic strength of the
market Is not mjsterlous however It
means very evidently that the holders
of stocks do not wish to sell at the pres
ent level and that the bears are not
willing to take the risk of selling stocks
short The dullness indicates that for the
present at least the buers are not much
more numerous than the sellers Such a
market is generall considered more like
ly to give way to an advance than to a
decline It will be Interesting to see If
the rule proves true in this Instance In
uny event It is not probable that there
will be much of a decline while the strike
Is unsettled but on the verge of settle
ment while the crip news continues to
Improve and while the superb Jul earn
ings statements are coming In
The outcome seems to depend on the
Insiders The public will not buy itocks
In a dull market and hence If the it aiders
do not begin a movement upward there
Is no probability of an thing Important
developing The Insiders may consider the
I resent a good time to mane a boom or
the mav wish to wait until later In the
jear when moncj conditions are less like
lv to prove troublesome to their opera
tions That the Insiders will wish to make
higher prices at some time In the near
future tan hardlj be doubted They have
big blocks of old and new securities to sell
and the whole great superstructure of the
recent vast rullwaj deals depends on their
aoilt to sell them Investment purchases
are advised on the declines b many care
ful mirket people Speculative purchases
u so ar considered likely to prove profit
able If made cartful after recessions in
price
The chief matters of Intere t in the
daj s bulness were th strength of the
Gould se curltlee and other Southwestern
ttocks the buving of the anthracite coal
ers i articularl the Erie and the weak
ness of Smelters The break in Smelters
came at the opening and attracted some
attention The etoek sold on the da be
fore at M and declined a point or more
before the cloi e Yesterda before noon
It had broken to SO on what seemed to be
Inside silling The statement made by
friends of the compan was that the
dividend Is In danger The slor as told
on the da before and It was a generally
distributed tip then and cstcrda morn
ing that there would be an Important
break In the stock This gratuitous In
formation regarding the danger to the
dividend and the generous distribution
of the advlee to s 11 tit stock cast some
suspicion on the bona tides of tho entire
business and when buving showed Itself
around SO the street generall came to
the conclusion that the Insiders has
wished the decline In order that stock
might be acquired What na be under
the movement cannot be discovered One
theor is that the Amalgamated Copper
Companv is planning to bu In the Smelt
ers and that the insiders wish to help the
purchase by getting outside stock cheap
The strength of the Gould securltle s was
again noticeable Missouri Pacillc got as
high as 103 and Kansas and Texas anil
Texas and Pacific were both well sus
tained Atchison and Southern Pacific
not of the Gould group but of the South
western securities were ulso Inn and al
most buojant at limes A number of
stories to account for the strength of
these stocks are afloat One is to the ef
fect that an agreemer has been mads to
advance freight charges in this section in
October TI1I3 Is not unlikely as the en
tire trend of the developments In th
West during the past year has been to
ward a harmon among the different
lntcrcatB that would allow of higher rales
The Gould reorganization plan is un
doubted under way The aurmiscs re
garding the nature of this plin nre -various
but all seem to include the idii of
one big controlling company Tills ma
be the Missouri Pacific expanded or It
may be a holding company something
like the Washington Traction of this city
Whatever the pl in may be it is entirely
probable that it contemplates the ad
vance of the prices of the present Gould
securities and their exchange for a new
set of securities which eventually are to
be distributed to the public
The buving of Atchison by Instde inter
ests noted frequently of lute probibly is
due largely to the fine July statement of
the company This statement shows a
wonderful condition of prosperity and in
dicates that the promises of the officers
of the company that it will earn as much
this ear as last were biscd on very good
foundation The yonrly statement of the
companv will oe Issued shortlj The ques
tion If ye dividend on the common stock
will bo Increased in the near future is
now under discussion Not long ago a
director of the company made the state
ment thtt 1 5 per cent dividend was like
ly Sinee then the corn crop damage has
become a factor and it is probable th it if
there is any increase It will not be to a
higher rate than 4 per cent Next jear
if business conditions continue ros the
fctock m ty be put on a 5 per cent baslb
Southern Pacific ngiin got above CO ves
terday No news ebpecHlly favorable to
this stock was heard but the buying in
it Is considered good
The St Paul annual statement Is ex
pected on September 3 next Tuesday The
figures of the tteimnt will be excellent
The stock was not particularly strong
j tsterday
Northern Pacific preferred was sold for
98 again The story has been revived th it
this stock Is to be retired at the end of
the ear and it Is very likelv true As an
investment good at Its present
price and verv likely to advance two
points before the end of the voir there is
some slight demand for the stock The
recent earnings of the Northern Pacific
company are said to bo the largest on
record and the officers of the company
state their belief that they will continue
very heavy during the jear on account of
the wonderful wheat crop and the general
prospcrltj throughout the Northwest
Tho Eric securities were perhaps the
most buovant jesterday The common
stock got as high as 8 nnd the first pre
ferred as high as Tli Tho Erie Is now
generally recognizee as destined to be
come tho Eisttrn end of the Morgan Hill
transcontinental sjstem Even before
this sjstem is worked out in full the line
will be given the Eastern business of the
Morgaii Hill Western sv stems to a large
extent without a doubt The Erie has
nnothcr claim on tho attention of invest
ors bv reason of Its being one of the chief
of the coal carrjing lines On Sunday an
other advance will be made in the price
of anthracite coil the total advance for
the summer being 50c a ton

li l rls The DUiiHte r An
At the Capitol three coloreel Iiborers
were Injured csterday shortly after noon
by being precipitated with a mass of
heavy building debris to the floor below
by the collapse of a temporal roof over
the United States Supreme Court cham
ber The men miraculously escaped eleath
The injured men with three others
were clearing away a pile of planking and
plastering which threatened disaster
when the nccident occurreei The fact
that it was lunch hour nnd th it the work
men in the Supreme Court room proper
had cease el work for the time prevented
more serious results A party of
sightseers who were just about to
enter the Supreme Court cham
ber under the escort of Albert Dougherty
a Capitol guide barely escaped being en
tombed under the falling debris
Those Injured are
W Polndexter colored thirty ears old
of 1534 Pierce Place right shoulder dislo
cated and bruised about the arms and
back
Dallas Jones colored forty one ean
old of Arlington Va hip and back sev
erely bruised
E Minor colored twenty eight ears of
age of Charlottesville Va right hip
sprained and right leg bruised
The injured were taken to the Emer
gency Hospital in the hospital ambulance
None is In a serious condition and It Is
expected that they will soon be able to
leave the hospital Jones It was supposed
at the time of the accident was hurt in
ternally but It was learned at the hospital
that this was not the case
The Supreme Court room Is on the east
side of the Capitol on the top floor
just north of the east entrance to the
building
Extensive alterations to the Capitol
have been In progress for some time
Richardson Burgess being the contract
ors in charge of the work The Supreme
Court room had been entirely cleaned out
and the original roof had been removed
and replaced by a temporary one sup
ported on 2 by 12 Inch Beams These were
supported by upright scaffoldings and
by the walls of the room A thin
planking formed the roof Itself
During the forenoon the laborers had
been working on the east side of the
building clearing out the roof on that
side The plastering planking beams
and Iron girders had been carried to the
east side where a large shute Is situated
which is used as a means to carry mate
rial to the ground The debris had col
lected faster than It could be dlsposeel
of by the shute and was allowed to ac
cumulate upon the temporary roof over
the Supreme Court Roqrn
Shortly before noon a boy called the at
tention of J R Fain ah engineer in the
Fain -who decided at once to relieve tho
pressure i
Taking six laborers with him he started
the work of clearing the roof of tne de
bris While the men were working the city
clocks struck twelve and most of the
workmen stopped JlrJ Fain determined
to work through the noon hour in the
effort to clear away the debris He warn
ed the men not xo walk on- the weak
parts of the roof but to pull the largo
pieces of lumber from the side of the pile
where the support to the roof was stiong
cr and the weight from above less Most
of the workmen observed this direction
but some of them found it more conven
ient to take the beams from the top of
the pile than to pull them out from un
derneath
One of the workmen whose name is
Polndexter Is understood to have seized
hold of a huge piece of lumber from the
pile and thrown it down on the tempora
ry roof The roof immediately collapsed
without further warning and the three
men were precipitated below
Policeman Woertendjke of the Capitol
force who was on duty at the door of
the Supreme Court Immediately notified
Lieut Fred P Lincoln in charge of the
CVpitol police and an ambulance was
summoned The injured men were helped
out of the mass of plaster and woodwork
and it was thought that Jones was most
seriously injured On the arrival of the
ambulance the men were taken to the
Emergency Hospital
Sir Fain who was superintending tho
work for the Office of the Architect of
the Capitol stated that when he obser
cd the criickcd beam he had anticlpited
the accident nnd hoped to prevent it by
promptly having the weight removed He
expected that n collipi e would hive brok
en through the Hoor of the Supremo
